Grade 8

Ahh, sat for my piano exam yesterday...oh I hope I pass this time as Im beginning to abhor playing the same songs day and night for the past 2 years! All in all, I played satisfactory, definitely better than last year. FYI: I failed last year. Sadly, I practically killed my sight reading test. My heart was beating so fast that it showed when I was playing my 1st song. I probably played it as fast as the speed of light. Dang! I dont want to go through this torture again and again, so Mr Examiner, please pass me!
At least I dont have to worry about piano for awhile therefore I can start concentrating on my studies. A sigh of relief there. So happy that Germany made it to the finals. Michael Ballack is such a hot and great captain. Some people just dont have good taste in guys!
Having another exam next week, and I havent been studying diligently so I better get to it now. Hope Germany wins the Euros, hope I pass my Grade 8 exam, hope I get an A1 for Add Maths, hope I sleep well tonight!

An Unsatisfied Blogger

Since Aveena was not impressed with the picture of Michael Ballack that I had posted recently, I have decided to upload another picture that would prove fussy Aveena wrong. He is soooo not 'not hot' (I refuse to type the word ugly cuz Michael Ballack and ugly does not go hand in hand unless your sentence is 'Michael Ballack is not ugly') Uh, some people can be so fussy! Oh well, I should please the reader's eyes too! Enjoy!

One and a Half Bowls and Counting

I cant believe the school holidays are almost over! I had the time of my life, finally got to sleep and wake up late. Woooh, thats what I call the time of my life...sad isnt it?
Anyways, missed the extra classes at school cuz I was on holiday visiting my grandparents both maternal and paternal ( blessed I am) at Ipoh and Kulim. Went to Penang too to visit my relatives who call the island their abode. Although I missed the mee udang that a local used to sell at Kulim, I found the next best thing, authentic asam laksa at Penang. We had to drive up and down hills for about 2o minutes before we could savour the bowl of noodles to die for. But it, thank goodness was all worth it! Dang, it is the best asam laksa Ive ever tasted, had one and a half bowls of it. We also visited a Penang heritage, a place called Khoo Kongsi. It had rows of beautiful shop houses that the Khoo family, who were immigrants from China lived loooong time ago. There were also a huge extravagant temple with carvings all over the place, including the ceiling, and a opera house with lion figures glued with colourful porcelain pieces on the arches of the roof. Man, those were simply amazing, proves how jobless yet creative people were during the olden times. All these modern gadgets and what not are garbage compared to the creativity people had during those days. Yet, I still cant live without them! Im glad that this piece of history is preserved and kept for younger people like me to witness and marvel. Looking at how the Khoo family lived which was in a peaceful and neighbourly environment makes me kinda jealous cuz we are definitely lacking a lot of that now. Man, I dont even know the neighbours living next to me. Kinda wish I could experience that... Wonder how it feels like..
