From Gan and Cha

Chalystha Lee and Gan Yi Quan's blogs have been stagnant for a really long while, but the two of them made it up with their recent and long-awaited blogposts. 

From Cha's blog:

Anywaysss, I went to school today, despite it being a Saturday. Becos our beloved Mr.Elvin wouldn't give us 4Adilians a break, even on Saturdays. Things I do for addmaths. [/shakeshead] 
Thank God I had my darlingg JacieTanChengHwee. ♥ We boytalked / bitched / played taptap / sang / ate nasigorengkampung / talked about boys / gossiped / bitched somemore / talked about boys somemore. ;) Thats our specialty - boytalk. Shes like my boytalk partner. :D 

Yeah, school on Saturdays're alright when you have awesome people to live through it with. She forgot about the part where we played pingpong on Edbert and Shau Yuan's desks using calculators as bats, though.

That was Nicole Low. I'm sorry.

And for the record, we didn't really bitch that much.

And here ma boy Gan deviated from his usual sexist-joke posts.

An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to his Class on the problem Science has with God, the Almighty. He asked one of his new Christian students to stand.
Professor: You are a Christian, aren't you, son? 
Student: Yes, sir. 
Professor: So, you believe in God? 
Student: Absolutely, sir. 
Professor: Is God good? 
Student: Sure. 
Professor: My brother died of cancer, even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn't. How is God good, then? Hmm? 
(Student was silent) 
Professor: You can't answer, can you? Let's start again, young fella. Is God good? 
Student: Yes. 
Professor: Is Satan good? 
Student: No. 
Professor: Where does Satan come from? 
Student: From.. God. 
Professor: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world? 
Student: Yes. 
Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything. Correct? 
Student: Yes. 
Professor: So who created evil? 
(Student didn't answer) 
Professor: Is there sickness? Immortality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don't they? 
Student: Yes, sir. 
Professor: So, who created them? 
(Student had no answer) 
Professor: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son.. have you ever seen God? 
Student: No, sir. 
Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your God. 
Student: No, sir. 
Professor: Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God, for that matter? 
Student: No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't. 
Professor: Yet you still believe in Him? 
Student: Yes. 
Professor: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, Science says your God doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son? 
Student: Nothing. I only have my Faith. 
Professor: Yes, Faith. And that is the problem Science has. 
Student: Professor, is there such a thing as Heat? 
Professor: Yes. 
Student: And is there such a thing as Cold? 
Professor: Yes. 
Student: No, sir, there isn't. 
(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events) 
Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don't have anything called cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of Heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it. 
(There was a pin-drop silence in the Lecture Theatre) 
Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness? 
Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn't darkness? 
Student: You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light... But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and it's called Darkness, isn't it? In reality, darkness isn't. If it is, You would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you? 
Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man? 
Student: Sir, my point is, your Philosophical Premise is flawed. 
Professor: Flawed? Can you explain how? 
Student: Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality. You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey? 
Professor: If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes of course, I do. 
Student: Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir? 
(The professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going) 
Student: Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher? 
(The class was in uproar) 
Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor's brain? 
(The class broke out into laughter) 
Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? .. No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable and Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures? 
(The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable) 
Professor: I guess you'll have to take them on Faith, son. 
Student: That is it, sir.. exactly! The link between man and God is Faith. That is all that keeps things alive and moving! 
That student was Albert Einstein.

I don't know if this really happened, or where in the world Gan found it. God, faith, Einstein. You know what this reminds me of? A Walk To Remember. ♥

Said Nicole Low to me today,
"Let's not talk about Pn. Manjeet. You're getting mad."

Wise words from a wise person.

School tomorrow, because Mr. Elvin refuses to slack off even on Saturday when only a quarter of the class shows up.

Do you think I should bring my cactus to school?

Maybe not. Every time we turn around in school now to talk to each other there's this loud "OW!" because we prick ourselves on Nicole's stupid Evilow. At least Harry is relatively safe, and Pokee is in Joey's house. What shall I name mine?

Two of my best friends just left me talking to the wall on msn because they both went to shit at the same time.

What. The. Eff.

Idiots. No mood to blog liao la. Signing off.

Happy Mooncake Festival, sweethearts!

It's almost midnight and what I'm doing now is sweating like a mad cow, and trying to stop sweating like the aforesaid mad cow so I can go bathe and wash my hair before going to sleep for school tomorrow, and I'm going to do a very nice draggy post while doing so.

On Monday, we, meaning Jacie Tan Cheng Hwee, Ng Li Sar, (Nicole) Low Yen Yi, Kee Joey and Chalystha Lee Yie Qin made a very random decision while Pn. Kokilam was teaching, to come to my house on Wednesday to celebrate the lantern festival.

Yeah, now it's Wednesday and the girls just went home after we had the night of our life - which I'm going to try my best to write down here, but I'm telling you, being the lame people we are, it's not easy man. It's going to be a long post, but I don't care, because moments like this don't come all the time. This post is so special it's green.

My awesome mom was very semangated about the whole thing and baked brownies yesterday and baked banana cupcakes today - she can't resist a chance to bake for my friends so they can compliment her - so we got a whole party-like atmosphere going on - a table outside for us and lanterns and all at the ready.

When the girls finally turned up at nearly nine p.m., they insisted on dragging the table out away from the lovely fan on the porch so we could sit under the open sky and full moon. First we syiok sendiri-ed fighting to get "nice" lanterns - mine was the prettiest, red and Mulan-ish, Li Sar's was a rabbit with a humongous head, Cha's was Kitty-kat, Joey's Pokeman, Nicole's pink. Then we kept drinking ti kun yam in the tiny little Chinese traditional tea set (Li Sar: Mooncake festival cultural a bit la! Drink tea!) and fooling around with Joey's DSLR. Oh yeah, pics with Joey, goodness knows when we'll see them la. We ate mooncake and banana cupcakes until we nearly burst and then decided to go for a lantern walk.

The walk was damn random. We brought my mom so she could take pictures and my sister carried the dog. We were sorta fooling around and singing and walking by the row of houses with lots of dogs, and then we decided to walk by the row of Indian shops, mainly Paandi's and Grand City. Because we love Indian people. We screamed "Happy Mooncake Festival" to any person unfortunate lucky enough to be in our way and "Selamat Hari Raya" to this Malay family who just stood and stared at us.

And then we started singing.

Wake up in the morning feeling like P Diddy
Grab my glasses I'm out the door I'm gonna hit this city.

I'm telling you, the people who were lucky enough to be sitting outside at Sri Paandi's had an experience they'll never forget la. How often is it you go mamak at 10.30pm and then see five girls carrying lanterns, walking the night streets, singing the full lyrics to Kesha's Tik Tok at the top of their voices? (We actually reached the bridge and repeated the chorus.) You, dear person, are sorry you missed it. All the people at Paandi's stopped eating and turned their chairs around to stare at us, some were cheering, and all the waiters and Grand City (some of which know me, homg) came out and stood there in a line to stare at us.

'cause we awesome people.

(Btw my mom and sister were walking as far behind us as possible.)

And then when my dad came home from his meeting (and demonstrated his awesome parking skills inside joke) we decided to sing the song we'd been rehearsing all night, Yue liang dai biao wo de xin  to him, so we called him out of the house and stood in a row with the lanterns so he could listen to us. And when we got through half way, staring off with an epic "ni wen, wo ai, ni you, duo shen", he totally interrupted us and said, "I think you singing it wrong."


We love you too, daddy.

And then we sat back outside and had my mom's brownies with ice cream and drank more tea and then we sorta played with some fireworks. But time was running short because Joey's mom was already mad that she wasn't home by eleven and turned up at about 11.30 with calling first. Because Joey's mom is smart - you don't call, your daughter can't make excuses.

Thanks to the best friend Li Sar for staying back and helping me clear up. :) And nicole too la, kay.

All in all, it was an epic night I'll never forget. All five of us celebrated it together, which is like a miracle in itself, and I'll never forget this night just like I'll never forget you girls.


This post was so long and draggy I didn't get to fit it in before midnight, but who cares. Oh, and it started raining! Praise the Lord for holding off the weather for us. Beautiful moon, too, by the way.

Thank you for reading. :)

School sucks, but laughing in school does not.

No more

The two-week holiday is over.
No more.
No more staying online the whole day.
No more major Sims3 sessions.
No more tempting those finger-spasms.
No more chatting with darlings.
No more sleeping after 2.am. every night.
No more sleeping all afternoon.
No more pretending to study and not really studying.
No more fitting a storybook inside the textbook and reading it.
No more crazy facebooking, no more consistent blog posts.

Computer addiction is bad for health.

You had your (more or less) golden days, Hwee.

It's time to suffer.

Goodbye, angels.
Sigh, remember those Arthur-Morgana days? The good old days.

Robin Hood again!

Finally managed to download clear version of Robin Hood online! Yes Andrew it was illegally downloaded! If you read my blogpost from when I first watched Robin Hood at the cinemas here, you'll know I was already dying to rewatch it then!

Better still, the version I downloaded seemed to be an extended one! There were like extended scenes! This was like watching LOTR extended all over again! The movie is so much awesomer because the extended scenes help certain things, like the love story and such, make much more sense!

I love this movie so much! Really!

I have to go now because my finger spasms are returning which happens when you spend the whole day onlining/playing sims!

But I came online just to post this really awesome post about Robin Hood! I'm so gonna rewatch it again!

So I am going to end this post, where, in case you didn't already realise, every sentence ends with an exclamation mark!

Quite long since my last update, but it's not because I'm lazy like some people, it's just that I've been writing unhappy posts and it has been agreed that unhappy posts do not suit me, so I don't publish them. And then I was considering writing a post called "For Bob and Jan", wishing them good luck for trials and telling them how I've missed them since they stepped down, putting in lyrics to Play that funky music (haha inside joke), but then the facebook-love-triangle thing changed my mind. (Because I'm not gonna wish my rival, namely Ho Hui Jan, luck in anything, right?)

Eh, Tharini, if you're reading this, which I doubt, jangan jealous pulak ya? I miss you tonnes too.

Anyway, this is what you get instead.

The other day my parents and I randomly decided to drive towards the general direction of Sepang for no apparent reason. (Y) Like Nicole said, family road trips are the best. We drove past the place where sosilawati and the other three were murdered, btw, ooh scary. And drove past more kampung-y places where you can actually see stars in the sky for once. And then we reached the Sepang Goldcoast Beach, next to where Golden Palmtree Villas are.

From the side, at the beach where I was standing, the Golden Palmtree Villas look like this:

Picture taken from this website.

But if you lived in the clouds and looked down this is what it looks like:

Picture from here.

Finally, a picture actually belonging to me, the smart person who forgot to bring a camera.

Look at my awesomeness as a black person.

Yeah, we got there in time for the sunset. See where the sand changes to something smoother and darker-coloured behind me? See, that's where all the millions of tiny little killer crabs are. The sand there is differently-coloured because those are actually all those crab-eggs and crab-nests on the sand. EW.

After that we drove by Morib to come home, and then I was hit by nostalgia for our F1 prefect camp.

And since I'm uploading pics from my handphone:

Extra sejarah class. Tiga orang ni went and uploaded horrible pics of me on fb.

From yumcha the other day.

This is Joey trying to smile like a normal human being.

NICOLE, I want the pictures from that day la. You know how rare it is that all five of us go out together? We're all gonna miss these moments when we leave school, and all the pictures are just stuck at your comp there. -.-

The big-headed girl is behind the camera.

I didn't realise until now that this post has a theme. This post is about special people, people who make life special.

Edit: Oh em gee now webcamming with Nicole who's in Datin Khoo's house doing accounts... there will be murder caught on webcam if she's caught... with Joey and LiSar in the background... ahahaha proves my point I love them man. ♥

I woke up late today. Why? Because of three of the most unbelievable people on earth.
Sisters Nicole Low, Chalystha Lee and Kee Joey.

It was an MSN group conversation worth staying up for man. You depressed? Need a laugh? Pay me fifty bucks and I'll let you read the chat log. It'll be worth ever cent, I swear. You will laugh like you have never laughed before. Approx. 770KB of pure laughter, eighty percent of our conversation is in capital letters and the word "HAHAHAHAHAHAHA" appears once every three lines.

I know I was laughing. Laughing as in you're howling while clutching your stomach, your head rolling over the keyboard as you're doubled over, pounding fists on the table and stamping on the floor, and you close your eyes because you don't want to read anymore nonsense from the girls, and you can't remember what it's like to breathe properly and you're gasping for air. All this while your whole family is asleep and if you do what you really want to do - scream with laughter - you will have to deal with the consequences of having woken them up.

This is not an exaggeration.

Hui Jan, this is far worse than my texting you and Bob in Empire Mall yesterday and standing still all by myself and laughing. Although I will never be able to hear the "Play that funky music" song without losing it ever again. Or at least thinking of the two of you - my parents, in a way, since Bob left me to marry you and adopted me in your castle in the air, if I remember correctly.

I laughed so much yesterday I think I lost weight.

Oh, speaking of Empire Mall.

Nicole, Chalystha, Joey, Li Sar and I have a deal. As soon as it's open, we are going to go on this.

P.S. Nobody is going to make me watch Piranha. Nobody.

P.P.S. This epic line is created by me:
"I can taste your breath/skin on my eyelashes." - Jacie Tan Cheng Hwee

Holidays I

Today it's Sunday, and first week of *precious* holidays have passed. (I hope that little voice in your head read the word *precious* in Gollum's voice like mine always does.) Whether the next week of hols will truly be hols or not, depends on my mother and my conscience. :)

On Monday I went to KLCC for the Bookfest, meeting the retard I mean lisar on the LRT. But as I was waiting for the train on the platform I saw this train pull in on the opposite platform, and what do I see through the tinted windows? This really familiar "hairdo" that could belong to no other but J. Thayaalan. Second time in two days I "run into" Thayaalan outside of school. We watched Vampires Suck at KLCC, because lisar and I both agreed that best friends should share at least one experience of watching a truly awful movie together. Then we went to Bookfest finally, where I glared and snapped at the annoying Chinese-y people on duty there in the process of getting in. Met up with Philip (this was unplanned lol) who lugged my books around for me and belanja-ed me cake and made sure lisar and I didn't die on the way back to the LRT station xD. Wanna know what books I bought? Haha, bet you don't. Anyway, long time I no pak toh with my best friend liao so I had fun with the bonus of seeing the hobbit.

I was supposed to go hang out at Sar's house the other day with Low, but my so-called sisters never bothered to call to check if I was actually coming, leading up to my waking up at 2pm when it was too late to go. I told Sar to call me up somemore. Idiot I tell you.

Yesterday, lepak-ed at Gardens/MidV with Andrew, Stuart and Sarah from church. We walked so much in the two malls that if I weren't wearing my croc heels I'd die. (I love my croc heels. I love those who bought them from me. All those eleven people who bought it, I love you.) Throughout lunch and going up escalators and waiting outside toilets and window shopping for shoes and window-shopping-for-a-suit-for-Stuart and visiting the toy section and visiting Robinson's kitchen utensil section, I laughed so much if I weren't in a public place I'd be rolling around on the floor.

And then Stuart and Sarah went home and Andrew and I decided to watch Resident Evil: Extinction, but it was at four-fifty, so we had to hang around pretty long. But it's the company that counts right? :) 'sides, I got to find out that chivalry isn't dead. Haha, evidently, Andrew, I never knew.

And I loooooved Resident Evil. Ohmigosh, hehe, it was awesome. I've been waiting for this fourth movie ever since I saw the third one! 

It wasn't even scary. It's the day after now, ta-da, no nightmares. But it was jkasudorekjfox awesome 'cause there was like guns and things blowing up and zombies getting chopped in half and Milla Jovovich and Ali Larter kicking ass. Poor Andrew. Sorry you had to watch it with me when you didn't even watch the first three haha. Also, thanks for lunch and icecream and my first GSC signature movie. Next time, I'm not gonna let you pay for me anymore. :)

Ooh, I love Resident Evil.

Roshan Agilan Hmm, yeah..you're all that's on my mind ;D

Hehe. Facebooking, is so worth it.
