223

I haven’t been getting enough rest.
And I’m in real dire need of sleep now.

But I can’t fall asleep.

I wish my boyfriend was here to put his arms around me and make it all go away.

I miss you baby.

Always Next Year

So, taddaaa!! That’s the 2009 Dato Onn drama team. Minus my brother and I. And today, we went to battle. Lol. Well it wasn’t really a battle, seeing as how our goal was more to not humiliate ourselves than to win it. I think it’s been a constant Dato Onn motto to “aim to win next year”. I’ve been so hyped up over it, that I’ve already started on my idea and script for next year’s play. Simply because it’s like the last year that I’m gonna be doing drama and I wanna put an end to the school’s losing streak before stopping. Leave my mark you know. Haha.

For the past 4 years, I’ve done more or less the same thing. After I’m informed very last minutely about the drama, I fix the script completely. Then I show up to help with the acting. And on the actual day, I cover myself in make up and glitter, glamouring them up for the stage. It’s become quite a routine. But I can’t say I really mind. I’ve always loved drama and all the ups and downs that comes with it.

I’m already missing this morning. Although I hated the part of it where I had to wake up freaking early and take the bus to school!! I had to be there and unfortunately Ron had to wait for the car and come later. Curse public transport!!

My drama babies. Lol. Them messing around before the drama started. And guess what the girls did to my brother as revenge. Done guessing??

Haha. Well here’s the award winning picture! =)
Coz a picture’s worth a thousand words.

Love it? I do. I wouldn’t give up my drama memories for well, almost anything.
And next year, we’re so gonna win!

Good ol’ Days

Sorry for the lack of updates again people. I just really don’t have an internet connection. So yeah. Unfortunately there won’t be updates that often for the next few months.

So here’s some of the stuff I did last week.

Hung out with Roy after about 2 years of not meeting. Went out to the mall and basically ended up sitting at McD for a few hours. Catching up on what’s happened and reminiscing about the “good ol days”.

Ah. The good ol’ days. Those and the many many more.

Then, I went to KL. For like 2 days. And I didn’t really do anything much there. Met up with Pineapple. Hung out a bit. Unfortunately if was the day before she got her Rihanna style haircut. So I haven’t seen it yet. Pineapple, if you’re reading this, upload some pictures fast k!

Earth Day 2009

I’m just one person.

Saving the earth, is something I just can’t do.

Wrong.

Each of us has the power through our daily decisions and lifestyle choices to make our homes and communities more environmentally friendly, but our power doesn’t end there.

Certainly, trying to put an end to many of the problems that threaten the environment of the earth requires resources and influence far beyond any single individuals capability. Problems like oil spills, hazardous waste, loss of rain forests, endangered species, acid rain, the ozone layer, the municipal waste crisis can feel out of our control. More often than not, movements like those are left to the government.

Yet, because our government exists to serve the needs of their citizens, the way you live your life, the demands you and others around you make for changes to help sustain rather than destroy the environment, directly has an effect on those parties, their actions, and ultimately, the future of our very own planet.

So here are some things I’ve come across that you can do :

Avoid Fast Food
– Most fast food is over packaged and most fast-food companies are responsible for producing mountains of trash. By avoiding fast food whenever possible, you’ll help reduce this needless waste.

Contribute to a Good Cause
– You don’t have to contribute a lot of money. In fact, you don’t have to contribute money at all. A local environmental group probably can use your and your friends’ help in many ways. By volunteering for just a few hours a week, you’ll be making a worthwhile contribution to the environment.

Boycott a Product
– Choose something that you feel is not good for the environment. Once you decide not to buy it, write a letter to the company (the address is often right on the package) and tell them why you have decided not to buy the product anymore. If lots of people did this, companies would start making more environmentally responsible products!

Eat Organic Produce
– Organic produce contains far fewer chemicals than other produce. It’s probably better for your health, and it is definitely better for the environment. All those chemicals get washed off into rivers and streams, where they pollute our water. In addition, many of the chemicals are made from nonrenewable resources.

And if you find yourself not being able to do those things, here are a few simple ones that well, are so simple that they don’t even need explanations.

– Turn off the lights.
– Use rechargeable batteries.
– Cut down packaging.
– Recycle everything.
– Use recycled things.
– Car pool to school/work.
– Don’t leave the tap running.
– Stop using styrofoam.

We can help.

Over the last few decades, we have managed to come up with possibly every idea there is to conserve energy and natural resources. Many plans have been developed, discussed and even put into action. But when individuals start questioning the impact of their efforts, and choose to give up, all these plans and ideas remain exactly where there are. Being just plans and ideas.

It is my opinion that you can be most effective by choosing one or two specific problems to focus on. Don’t try to do everything at once. You are not God. Pick a problem and learn as much about it as you can. Then do something about it. Start a group. Join an organization. Get involved. Progress does not happen by you sitting on your ass. Get started today.

Oh! And sign up for Earth Hour HERE.

KL & Cameron Highlands

Finally! I’m back!

I know, y’all wanna know how the Camerons trip was right. The reason I haven’t written a post on it is cause, there’s nothing much to report on it. Lol.

I slept most of the way up so that I wouldn’t throw up. And after about 2 hours of being in the cold weather up there, I got hit by a case of the really-annoying-blocked-nose-flu. The entire first day and most of the second day was split between sleeping and watching DVDs. I had my strawberries with whipped cream and all. But I felt too sick to do any visiting. So, no strawberry farm or tea plantation. Seriously, all the remaining strength I had was put into making sure I took breaths, before I dropped dead from forgetting to do so. I slept the whole way down as well, cause the road’s the way it is and I really couldn’t take it. But overall I guess I’d say that I still enjoyed the trip, coz it was in some ways, really relaxing. Totally stress and worry free. Exactly what I needed.

Haha and I guess you should then know by now, that I didn’t really have the energy to take many pictures. Wish I did. But then again, I didn’t have Pineapple with me to go all “Let’s take pictures!” you know. Speaking of which, here’s what I saw in my drafts when I got back to dad’s place and logged on to my blogger.

“She’s missing because apparently, someone’s sick after Cameron Highlands. And overdosing having to fill herself with cough/flu medication, she is constantly drowsy.

So without shame and uh, hesitation in any sense (will I ever hesitate to intrude here…NO?), I’m intruding to update on behalf of her.. which isn’t much updates, actually ; she’s just resting, resting, and resting. And she’s currently not in the mood to answer calls or anything, so please leave her alone. Thank you.

Okay, that’s bullshit :P Oh well, I really don’t know what to update”

Haha. Shows how much she understands me lah.
Coz that’s exactly whats been going on here since I’ve gotten back. I’ve still been sick. And tired. And well, just not feeling very well. I wanted to get online to update my poor lil blog. But there’s nothing much to update on.

The only time I went out in the past week was to go back to Dato Onn to have a look at the drama practice. I was really involved in the past years (with the exception of 2008, cause I was in KL) and I just wanted to go have a look-see. Being back there was really fun. And I realized how much I miss drama and being able to sit back and criticize stuff and knowing that I do make a difference in some ways. Haha. If any of that made sense.

I’m now back home with an assignment to fix up the script and play. Although the competition’s less than 2 weeks away and we all know that there’s no way Dato Onn would win, at least by fixing it up a little, we wouldn’t totally make a fool out of ourselves. I include me in the ‘we’ cause I used to be in Convent (our competitor) but I’m gonna be going on the 31st as a Dato Onn supporter. If the play totally sucks then malu lah kan.

I guess that’s about all I’ve got to update on so far. I’m looking forward to hanging out with Sofy the one week that she’s back in Penang. And probably another random trip to KL to go see Pineapple. I’ve gotta admit. I sure do have a lot of fun hanging out with her. Even though we don’t travel the world and stuff, we still have fun doing the crap we do. With a whole lot of it involving her oh-so-famous-by-now mirror.

Til next time…
Adios amigos!!
