Farewell?

Last day of school. I’m gonna be in different classes with my friends next year. I dunno if I’ll ever make new friends there. It’s like the beginning of the year all over again. Like a stranger in a crowd of strangers.

When I knew I was going to be in a different class, and even though it was the best class (for me) in school, I felt no happiness at all. It was like, a dementor had just sucked up all the happiness in me. It wasn’t exactly sadness, either. I was confused, and dizzy, like I was hit by a Confunding Charm. We were in the surau then and I could actually feel tears welling up in my eyes. But then I thought, Why am I crying? I mean, I’m promoted! So why am I crying? Well, I got my answer: I couldn’t bear to leave my friends.

See, I’m not exactly a friendly person, so unless you’re a very close friend of mine, I’m not going to speak to you. You’ll have to start the talking. That’s plain, old, typical me. So, making new friends is a very tough challenge for me.

Back at class, several people cried, be it the promoted ones, the demoted ones, and the neither ones. I cried silently too, but did it stealthily, which still received several teases from the sturdier students. Cheng Lin did console me, which made me feel better too.

Afternoon. We had a, you-can-say-farewell party. I tried to hold back all my tears and put on a jovial expression and went on with my goofy ways. The painful fact that I was going to part with Hwa, Leea, Anum and others was still in my heart, waiting to be unleashed once triggered. One thought about it and the tears came out. No use, so I ignored it till after school. In the car, I smiled to my father to assure him I was alright, just like any other school day, then I turned away and the dark clouds started hanging in my heart. I knew we wouldn’t be apart forever. I knew we’d still be able to see each other every single day in school, but deep down in my heart, through all those consoling drivel, I knew that we won’t be as close as we did before. I knew that life wouldn’t always keep its sweet. I knew that my “friendship forever” promise won’t be kept.

To all my 1 Kedah classmates,

              I am awfully sorry if I have ever offended or hurt your feelings. Please accept my apologies. I have appreciated your faithful company throughout the whole year. You lended me a helping hand when I was losing ground; you shared my pain and my sorrow, despite my demanding ways, and I’m sorry for all the bad things I have done or said to you. Bear in mind, that never for a millisecond will I ever forget you, our friendship, our memories.

                Once again, thank you, and sorry. Terima kasih atas segala-galanya, kamulah pelita yang mencahayai perjalananku ke menara gading. Terima kasih dan minta maaf.

Farewell, my friends.

Cleaning…!

A few weeks ago, on a particular (not to mention unlucky) Friday, my mum announnced a “gotong-royong” in our house, and I was assigned to clean my own region a.k.a. my room. Can you imagine the pain and suffering it took, just to clean my desk? It was soooo revolting. (I can’t believe I’m criticising my own room! My haven!) There were cobwebs here and there and it was DISGUSTING. It is essential for you to know that I don’t do my chores. You can call me a “princess”. I mean, the negative sort of “princess”. Like, “spoiled brat” and so on and so forth. So, I pinched my nose and ignored all the “substances” that stuck on my hand, and, whaddya know? I survived! Although the room wasn’t exactly spotless, (I had to clean my desk, cupboard, computer table [ew], book shelf and side tables) I was quite satisfied with the results. I mean, this is the first time I’ve ever done any serious cleaning. Ev-ah. I was sweating from head to toe and treated myself with a 5-hour long online trip. 😉

Disney Celebs’ No-nos (Part 3)

Relax, this will be my last Disney post. Relax.

OK, I think you know what a ‘no-no’ means. Of course you do. You would’ve heard of Amy Winehouse’s ‘no, no ,no’ before. No? Fine. A ‘no-no’ means (obviously) things you shouldn’t do. Like taking nude pictures, for instance.

Vanessa Hudgens’s *toot* picture

Like you don’t know about this! Fine, if you just came back from Pluto, nude photos of Vanessa Hudgens -who potrays Gabriella Montez in the renowned HSM- was released into the Web -and mags and newpapers too- last year. The picture was taken when she was 15 and Vanessa exclaimed that the photo was meant ‘for a friend’. The ‘hype’ went on for quite some time and eventually died down before 2008. Thank God.

RULE NO. 1: Do not take photos of yourself nothing. And if you give the photo to someone else, you’re dead meat. And if you happen to be a famous celeb, you’re minced meat. You should know by now that anything concerning nudity is bound to find its way to the public, no matter how hard you try to hide it. And if you swallow it, the X-ray is bound to find it.

Miley Cyrus’s racy photos of Vanity Fair

Another taboo. When will this girls ever learn? It seems that the Hannah Montana star has been photographed wearing nothing except a sheet of cloth shielding her back. Although you cannot see anything, erm, revealing, the photo has been a shock for many young fans. Said Miley, ” I thought of it as an art. I feel so regretful about it now. I am sorry to all my fans.” Told’ya art was suffering.

RULE NO.2: Don’t get involved in any ‘art’ that you’re not certain about. Especiallt anything involving photography. Photography art is bull****.

Selena Gomez’s rumoured photo

Yes, even the angelic Selena Gomez is in this category. Rumour is that she was photographed in a bathtub with rose petals floating on the water surface. There is no prove about this photographing though. Let’s hope it stays that way.

RULE NO. 3: Just get out of the camera shot.

 

 

 

Disney’s Musical Obsession (Part 2)

OK, OK, I admit, I’m copycat-ing Galaxie’s Suzie, but she’s my idol. I can’t help it. Anyway, she writes it better than I do, she -and the entire Galaxie crew- needn’t be angry with me.

Anyways, back to the topic. OK. Disney’s Musical Obsession. After -or before- watching Camp Rock, do you ever think, “Another musical again..” or “Another HSM again..” or “Another Disney musical again..” ? Soon, before you know it, Disney’ll produce another HSM-and-Camp-Rock-combined-with-a-little-Hairspray-in-between musical movie.

Here are the ,erm, characteristics needed to produce a musical:

  1. Find a GORGEOUS girl who has great singing skills but lacks confidence.
  2. Find another CUTE boy who also has great singing skills but doesn’t even know it because he thinks singin’ isn’t a boy thang. Or in Camp Rock’s case, a boy who is a great singer but has wretched morals.
  3. Make sure there’s a Starting Song before every movie as a prologue. eg. The Start of Something New. What Time Is It? (HSM) , Who Will I Be? (CR)
  4. Put Girl and Boy together in a whole new environment.
  5. Make sure Girl gets a girlfriend. Fast. (Even though Girl dissed her.)
  6. Girl and boy starts to get cosy in movie #1 but relationship starts to grow in movie #2. (I hope CR does.)
  7. Villianess a.k.a Queen Bee -whose mind is always about me, me, me- and her girls -or brother- tries to steal Girl’s limelight. And boyfriend.
  8. Boy doesn’t like Villianess (obviously) but Girl and Boy likes each other. (another obviously)
  9. Villianess sings a “me, me, me” song onstage but ended up humiliating herself. eg. Bop to the Top, You are the Music in Me(Sharpay version) (HSM), Two Stars (CR)
  10. Girl and boy perform duet onstage. (Even though its not planned.)
  11. Girl and Boy’s performance turned out to be the awesome-est.
  12. The Villianess becomes friendly just to participate in the Ending Song(s).
  13. Oh, and then there’s the Ending Song, where everyone joins in, including the Villianess and her peeps, which is lead by the Girl and Boy. eg. Together, All For One (HSM), We Rock, Our Time Is Here (CR)

Am I right, or am I right?

I think that’s all. I’m writing crap again. Sigh.

Again, PICTURES!!

Camp Rock

High School Musical

You can bet after the East Highers graduate, its the Camp Rock saga instead.

COMING UP: Disney Celebs’ No-nos

Disney Magic (Part 1)

You have to agree with me when I say Disney stars are getting more and more competitive. In the Disney compartment, you can find a bountiful of young and energetic stars, with Disney boosting up their ‘seats’ in the entertainment field.

According to Galaxie (ahem),

The television arm of the Disney Corporation has the knack for spotting female talents and turning them into big Hollywood stars.

                                                                 -Galaxie, Report Card (1-15 Sep issue)

That, is so true.

For example, Hilary Duff started out as Lizzie McGuire, and is now one of the top artistes in music charts (though i wouldn’t be sure about that NOW). And then we have the ‘phenomenal’ Miley “Hannah Montana” Cyrus. (which, her real name is Destiny Hope Cyrus). A few years back and we’re gonna have the HSM crew, which is blooming now with the filming of HSM 3: Senior Year. Now we have Demi Lovato as the lead actress of Camp Rock. AND in the future, we’ll have Selena Gomez in the upcoming movie Another Cinderella Story, which is supposingly a sequel to A Cinderella Story and Princess Protection Program.

For the boys, there’s the ultimately cute Jonas Brothers 😉 , Zac Efron and, errr, fine, I admit, I don’t know anymore. That’s because I’m all eyes for the JBs. =p

These Disney teen stars are slowly and dangerously stealing the limelight from non-Disney stars, such as Ashlee Simpson, Blake Lively, Megan Fox, Colbie Caillat, Rihanna, Backstreet Boys, Paris Hilton (bleurgh), Britney Spears (double bleurgh) and many more. Seems like Disney is starting to be a threat in the entertainment industry. And I remember when Disney was just Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Snow White etc.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for Disney. Squeaky, clean Disney.

It seems like the only way to get the top seat of the entertainment industry is to join the Disney Club. I know I would. Take the JBs. They were practically nothing until Camp Rock. And without the JBs, Camp Rock would be nothing. See, cuz since HSM 3 is currently being filmed, Disney Channel will have to find a new movie to subsitute the absence of HSM 3. Temporarily. Yeah, but ‘temporarily’ is not the correct word now cuz Camp Rock is starting to jump the queue in front of HSM. Muahahaha. Never liked HSM anyway.

OK, guess I am writing crap. Fine, I WON”T be a magazine reporter. Sigh.

Before I go, its…..PICTURES TIME!!
