2011 Recap

2011 has been an eventful year, as it is my last year in high school and also the year I partake the feared-by-many SPM exam. There are a few important things to highlight in this year, and I'm really grateful that I, despite having a serious snotty disease, am still alive and kicking. I'm sorry that you had to sit next to me this whole year and see me wrapping up disgusting wantans, King Mei (금매).

In the blink of an eye, my secondary school life is over. I kind of felt sorry for myself for not doing something crazy in high school that can be reminisced when I'm older. For example, climb up the bleeding tree (yes, it does bleed!) at the edge of the school field, make a prank on a fellow classmate on April Fool's, try to throw a spear, organize a picnic to Teluk Batik - anything to make me feel a little rebellious. Well, I haven't done any of the above, and it's already over. Now I can start to weep pathetically over my lost school life.

Over with the mourning, now comes the happy part.

1. I've been sitting next to my BFF, King Mei
for, what - four years? in school.

(Come to think of it, we haven't really had a good picture together. This is the best one I can find.)

2. Our group emerged as one of the State level winners in the Star NIE - Pizza Hut Magazine Contest! (Sorry, I forgot its official name.)

Me, King Mei and Lei Wen had laughed like maniacs in Pizza Hut. It was like getting rich all of a sudden. But we spent our wealth in one hour, stuffing our bellies full with Pizza Hut treats.

3. Graduation Day

4. Bomba Farewell Party @ KFC

We spent a whooping RM 300 that night, but considering how our club members enjoyed the meal, it was worth the money.

4. Class party at Ms. Tan's home

Hey, how can he be whiter than me??? Not fair!!! *Stares enviously*

5. Prefect's Farewell

Secondary school life is an amazing journey in life that enables us to meet with friends who, no matter what happens, will still remain as an indispensable piece of puzzle that makes our lives joyful and interesting. Though we may, at one time, be at odds with one another, the sincerity of friendship that bonds us together will help us to overcome these misunderstandings and mistrusts. I hope each and everyone of my friends will find the courage to pursue their greatest dreams and attain happiness in the future.
