Mushroom Mushroom

[randomsauce]



I finally spawned a new mushroom to make the total to 12, during a mamak session with my mum, aunts, an uncle and a cousin. Yes, DURING A MAMAK SESSION. You can imagine how long I was sitting there. And then, the question that bewilders and surprises me till now remains...

"What is it?"

"Is it a beetle?"

"Is it a 'deeh'(pig)?"


OMG mummy, ah yee(aunty), IT'S A MUSHROOOOOM.


Surprising yes, that there are actually uninformed people out there who couldn't tell it's a mushroom. Poor peeps who never had the luxury of playing Mario. Even the mamak dude who came to count our bill said:


"Wah, Ah Moi, pandai buat ni 'Mo Gu'(mushroom)!"


YES. THANK YOU. It's a mushroom.

[/randomsauce]


I should be going back home Wednesday night, unless my aunts manage to make my mum stay back, or if my Mia Fey outfit would be done in the next two days. My aunt who did the Seychelles outfit for me got tired and refused to do my Mia one, so my other aunt will be continueing the job after she cuts the fabric. Whoopieee. She made me really cute ribbons too! I'll post pictures up once I get back(I had to do the mushroom one, because it's such a spur-of-the-moment thing).


While I'm at this...

ALL THE BEST TO ALL SPM STUDENTS!!!

Seychelles!

No updates on the mushrooms, as they has been no progress. As for NaNoWriMo, I have been slacking lately, not because I want to! ;___; I'll get back to that soon.

Last Thursday, I went to watch my brother's choir concert. It was AMAZING! Well, the Young KL Singers always are when you compare then with my mediocre(but improving, and totally owhsm!) choir at school. They sing unique songs, with cool rhythm and even tempo(pok pok alimpako... *insert random Filipino words I can't catch*), and have cool moves on the stage! Sooo farney. And entertaining! Especially when you're brother is as tall as a pole, and moves liek jelly even when he's so stiff. Win.

I've been skipping school after Wednesday, so there's nothing much eventful(not that school is very eventful to start with...), until Saturday came, which was the Sunday Dhamma School concert, where I have been helping kids prepare their dance since September. On top of that, I was heading the performance which is supposed to represent Teen Quest Gathering. And then there was the cheesy sway-your-body-to-the-music-and-look-emo ending to "You Raise Me Up". I was at Chee Wen since 3pm-ish, and the show started at 7pm. SURPRISINGLY, everything went well and was actually pretty cool and fun! :D The dance, the TQG act, the "You Raise Me Up", everything! But of course, we can't compare to Session 1's owhsm performance, and Jia Shuo and Shaun's singing. But all in all, the concert was pretty cool, although I went home early. xD

And now, I'm in Malacca! Since yesterday, and -should- be going back tomorrow. As usual, there's always no available computer and internet, until I got this laptop from my cousin brother who had no internet at his house, and brought it to my aunt's place with no computers, but internet. With my tight schedule since Thursday and the unavailability of computers these two days, I had to write my NaNoWriMo with hand, and couldn't update it until now. I'm almost 6k+ words behind schedule! I'll need to keep rushing now...

Oh yeah, I haven't told you why I'm in Malacca right? I'm at the "Tan Academy" right now to make my cosplay costumes, and my aunt has completed my Seychelles' outfit! Woohoo! I'll just need to lose some blubber now. When my aunt gets back from India, we'll work on my Mia Fey outfit. :3 I'm so excited!

So yeah, I'll now uh, go back to my NaNoWriMo. :X

As usual, I'll boast about my mushrooms and word count at the start of the post. The mushrooms are slowing down, at 10 as of today, but 10 days into NaNoWriMo, I have 17,000+ words! Woohoo! I can taste the 50k! I'm still writing the early part of the story, but I'm getting feedback that the plot is pretty good right now. Gosh, if it is good, wait till they read the ZOMGWTH plot twists I have in store later. xD I can't wait till I get there!

Anyhow, that means that YOU should be reading my novel too!: :My Writing Blog!:

Now, moving on with life. First of all, we had our last Teen Quest Gathering of the year, and I've decided to return to the organizing committee by January 2010 after my months of well deserved break. I'm less bitchy and angry without having to worry about piano practices or all the political what nots I faced mid-year this year. *ahem ahem* Meanwhile, the Sunday Dhamma School Concert preparations are going on well, and will happen this Saturday. On top of that, I'll be watching my brother's choir perform tomorrow! Yay!

For school, I've only been going to school these few days because I'm involved in the Amazing Race organized for the form 3's, just like the one I had for my post-PMR activities last year. But then, last year's was just a lame treasure hunt which was just a bunch of station games. But with me organizing this year's event, I made it 100% ala Amazing Race, with envelopes of clues and Roadblocks, Detours, U-Turns and all!(they even hopped on the "mat" to check in at the finish line!) So, just to prepare this, I went to school on Monday and Tuesday, with today being the event. Anthea helped me take lots of pictures and videos, which I'm planning to compile them up and make it into an "episode" of Amazing Race. But then, I'm pretty lazy right now(having only written 300+ words for NaNoWriMo at the moment!), so maybe I'll do it next time.

Sadly, I had somehow lost my wallet today... For all SMK USJ 13-ers, if you spot a brown, bulky, Crocodile wallet, please return it to me!

On the bright side, I've done pretty well in my exams this time around! Not the best results, but definitely great for my standards, and for the first time with full format of my SPM path! Get a load of this!

Bahasa Malaysia - 71 - A2
English - 79 - A1
Modern Mathematics - 90 - A1
Additional Mathematics - 62 - B4
Biology - 75 - A1
Chemistry - 61 - B4
Physics - 71 -A2
Pendidikan Moral - 66 - B3
Sejarah - 51 - C6
English for Science and Technology - 94 - A1

Woohooooo!!! 6As3Bs1C! Does that mean I'll get 9As and a B for SPM? :3 Anyhow, I'm quite glad with this results, since I got quite some low marks in my last exam. But at least now, my marks are all about 60(with an exception of Sejarah, pfft). I'm especially happy with BM(one out of 4 in class with A), Biology(still maintaining As, when others can't), EST(EAT THAT YOHANN, top scores man!) and Physics. To top that up, I'm number 5 in class! Wew! So, yay! MOVE ME INTO 5 AMANAH, YOU HEAR?

So, I be skipping school the next two days to spend some time with NaNoWriMo and the computer. Whoopieeee. More updates to come.

The Week After Exam

I've been super productive these pass few days, as explained in the previous post. But I'm just gonna state it again. :D I have done 9 mushrooms in a week and 10,500 words in 6 days of NaNoWriMo! I'm owhsmness!


Mushroom Mushroom!

On a side note, due to the owhsm multiplying abilities of my mushroom, Badger Badger Badger Mushroom Mushroom Snake has been a fanatic among Fiametta-inkers. To find out more, go watch this so you would not be left out!

As stated, I have written the blogpost for the Fiametta-ink sleepover, as Anthea bummed out of it.
Read about the Fiametta-ink sleepover: here!

However, as certain happenings during the sleepover are just too owhsm, I have to show them here on my blog too.


Before


After!



ZOMG, DIVINE FAKE EYELASHES!!! It's just supaa owhsm! It makes me look so sparkleh, muahahaha. Obviously, this is just for cosplay, I'm not the type who would wear these sort of stuff on a daily basis. Still... :D

Okay, fine, I just wanted to show off the eye lashes! I'll throw in a picture of Anthea's adopted kitten, Oreo, too.

School has been all the same after exams. Boring, uneventful, etc. etc. Thank goodness for my cross stitch. So, we performed on Wednesday, Ian totally killing the girls in our school with his rapping and glare at the end of his fashion show catwalk. The was pretty much the only eventful thing of the week, other than Pn. Rachel requesting me, Sarah and Kuan Yee to help organize the Amazing Race for the form 3s.

But my marks, OMG. I'm sooooo glad with my marks! I got a high A1 for my EST!(94!!) I should be able to get an A1 for my Biology, again(I need to reconfirm folio marks with teacher, but it's a definite A). Chemistry's a C(could push to B), Modern Maths an A1, and the rest I conveniently forgot, or simply haven't gotten the results back yet. But no fails, woohoo! I'm holding onto my no fail streak maaaan.

Today, I went out for almost the whole day. Morning was Taekwondo, then I had my Hello! Project dance practice with Cherry and Amelia again(became more of a lepak session). I was supposed to have a concert practice at the temple, and a Leo Halloween thingy I wanted to represent my club to attend. I opted for the former, as I "ffk-ed" them last week. On top of all these, I had a primary school gathering at Sunway Pyramid, which I opted to skip for the concert practice, but then went anyway because the former got cancelled.

One thing I was skeptical about the gathering was that there would be too many groups wandering on their own. It happens 90% of the time, as it's Pyramid and people just don't get the definition of "gathering", not "hang-out". But this time was pretty okay, probably because of the number of people I reunited with, and the short amount of time given to them to ditch me, haha.

I saw Kang Shyan, Wooi Sheng, Chun Ye, Eu Mun, Kar Soon and Kuan Yee again. And after 4 years, saw Hsiang Xin, Pei Zhen, Hoe Yen, Chee Yee, Joo Yee... and many more! Whoooo~ Sweet memories. Although the guys were all so quiet and reluctant to talk, making it pretty awkward. All they would do is cross their arms, or put them in their pockets, then answer in a monotonous manner with the least words possible. Funny. We watched Jennifer's Body, which I thought was only selling because Megan Fox was apparently the main character, which is not quite the case. And the show was pretty... iono... weird... So pleaaaase, don't get disillusioned by Megan Fox being on the poster, kthxbai.

Overall, pretty fun day today. 8D Now, I shalt go back to typing my story.

Limit Break!

The lvl 999 procrastinator has been working hard since she finished her exams! As of today, I have made 6 Mario mushroom cross stitches in 4 days and wrote 1,751 words for day one of NaNoWriMo!!! Gosh! I feel so enthusiastic all of a sudden! My procrastination must've been passed on to Anthea, because she was hardly working during our Fiametta-ink meeting and she has yet to blog about our sleepover. *rolls eyes*

Just like last Friday, I wanted to blog on Saturday, but couldn't because I was still at Anthea's house for most of the day. Then I wanted to blog on Sunday, but I was out all day, and while I was at home I was rushing my NaNoWriMo. So here I am, blogging today before I wear my NaNoWriMo thinking hat!

At this rate, I won't have any time for games. :X
But meh! It's a good thing. I'm actually working, and I feel really proud about it.

I'd like to blog about the Fiametta-ink sleepover, but Anthea was supposed to do it, and I don't have my pictures with me here on this computer. Maybe I'll blog about it later on the Fiametta-ink blog after I finish today's NaNoWriMo quota...

But just to point up a few things of interest from our Fiametta-ink sleepover...:
Anthea's kitty, Orea ish sooooo adorable! Anthea picked her(well, we can't really tell... but there was nothing there, so we figured we'd call her her) up from the drain and adopted her till she's big enough to fend for herself. She's really tiny and fragile, I'll post up a video of her on Facebook, once I get on my laptop.
WE BOUGHT FAKE EYELASHES! *spazz spazz* It's so pwetty!
Melissa's first sleepover! Congrats darling!
Melissa sleeps like a spacewoman, says Anthea.
We should really do a sleepover again. :3

It's pretty boring at school now that exams are over. The teacher doesn't really teach much, heck, they don't even enter class! But for these 3 days, I'll be going to school to practice for choir's last performance(we already had 2 "last" performances) of the year at a 1 Malaysia jamuan. Obviously, we're singing a 1 Malaysia song. We're singing "Satu Suara", the one with the rapping and all. And I'm gonna be rapping Point Blank's part, in cantonese. :3 Hey, I'm a Cantokien(Cantonese-Hokkien) after all!It's pretty fun, but while I'm in class for the next few weeks, I'll be mass producing Mario Mushrooms. xD

On the other hand, class after exams are always about giving out results, and BOY, am I super proud and happy about today's results! I got pretty good marks for my Add Maths 1, an A1 for Mathematics aaaaaaaaaand... *drumrolls*
AN A2 FOR PHYSICS!!! ZOMG!!! It's liek one of my worst subjects, but I took a 20 mark leap from C to A! Woohoo!

I really am super happy and accomplished these few days. :D Let's hope the enthusiastic streak keeps rolling on!
