Anthea's Birthday + HELPMUN!

It was a crazy hectic weekend!

Anthea's 18th Birthday (24 March 2011)

Weehee! Another celebration in session! Mohahahaha. A bunch of us girls went to Anthea's house at night for a dessert cum-dinner party. Nothing much to elaborate, except that food is owhsm as usual! So here's the pictures to tell the story!

No gathering is complete without camwhoring

More appreciation to the mirror

Camwhoooore! (because we still can :D)

Watching Secret Big Bang!

And then I went home (and I forgot my camera! o_o). And mum, who was on holiday in Myanmar, came back! There was an earthquake that day. Thank goodness it only happened when she lifted off.

HELPMUN 2011 (25-27 March 2011)

My first MUN! MUN basically means Model United Nations, where a bunch of people will have a conference, UN style, to deal with current issues and find solutions to the world's problems. Everyone will represent a country in a different committee. I was Madagascar in the ECOFIN (Economic and Financial) committee! Gosh, there was so much technicalities it was kinda hard to research on the topics. On top of that, I can't find much about Madagascar... ugh.

Anyhow, it was fun! (I took really minimal photos though, sadz) Day 1 was a short day. Everyone had to do their opening speeches about their country's stand on the issues. I was kinda interested in the gold standards. I ended my speech with "The Delegate of Madagascar would now like to move it, move it." xDD

We had our lobbying session after that, where we discussed with delegates of the same mindsets to write a resolution. I tried my best to contribute, which wasn't much because honestly, my general knowledge fails. |D Anyhow, they managed to cook something up on rejecting gold standards! (YAY)

Day 2!


The ECOFIN conference hall

I was sitting throughout most of the conference, because the topics discussed were so deep, and the people had such deep knowledge about them! It was pretty intimidating, honestly. I learned a lot though. I picked up the ways of a MUN, and all the procedures that wasn't covered during the mock conference on Monday. And while the delegates are in our seats, we can pass notes, which the admins would pass for us. :D It's supposed to be used as a way to ask questions on the debate, as no direct communication is allowed between delegates. But the notes were mostly used for chit-chatting, haha! And the admin staffs reads them! D: Can't fill in all the information here, since it's mostly technical, and in-jokes are hard to explain. So here are some pictures!

At Chillax with the delegates!


Me and Anthea get free chocolate cake because our food came late. Owhsm. :D

Conference in session

What's up?

Day 3! I started sending around more notes. It was 99% chit-chat with Miss Venezuela, haha! And this one, same admin staff keeps running to my note and grabbing them quickly. And he reads them right in front of my face. o_o I started writing lines like "hi admin!" and "the admin didn't respond when he saw my greeting". The guy super stun only, but I guess I gave him some good laughs later, haha. Can't blame them for wanting to read the contents, they must be bored passing notes all day on our behalf.

Miss Venezuela and Miss Madagascar :3

Qatar and Portugal bonding through videos

Venezuela, Pakistan and... (I can't remember D:)

Czech Republic is reading about Singapore (srzly)

Angola (me thinks?), Hungary, Pakistan, US (Mr. Fashionable Late!) and Venezuela!

During my last debate, I stood up and gave a speech speaking against the resolution. Omg super suicide! When I got up to the podium, I went half-blank. Most of what I said was probably just very general and didn't make much sense. |D I was P.O.I'ed about for times, zomg. Trauma! But I'll probably attend more MUNs anyway! :3 At the end of our debates, we had superlatives! Where we come up with random superlatives and vote for the delegates that best fits the description. It was entertaining. xD

The list of winners!:

Ecuador pretty much pwned all the awards, being the most WTH-inducing delegate. WORLD WAR 3!

Later, we had a plenary session, which was a joint conference with the Human Rights Council. It was pretty cool, as there were more owhsm people. And good humour! Although some of the HRC people didn't really like it. Hurrr.

The Auditorium

Bahrain and Madagascar!

And more :P

The ECOFIN Committee!

That was pretty much all the pictures I have, haha. And so the end of the conference came. I'm already looking forward to the next! :3

It was the first time I skipped Cheng Beng for HELPMUN, and then I get back home every night I emo over the assignments I had. (MALAYSIAN STUDIES ARRGGH) Holidays just ended, and I'm back in school. Just had a bad day on Monday, but nothing much actually. Glad to see all my classmates again! But Adesh is leaving our class to get some scholarship from some other college. Sad! =( The March intake students came in too! I organized the ice-breaking games for them, hopefully they had fun. Whee! SAM!

So yes, more updates next time before this post gets too lengthy, teehee.

SPM 2010 Results Day!

It's been a good, productive day today. :D (PHOTO FEAST AHEAD) (Blogging 3 days in a row too! Teehee!)

Woke up early in the morning and headed to school to collect my SPM results! I was more excited and curious than nervous. The A's are going to be essential in getting me more money, hehe.

Walking to school, I took a picture to check if my lens were still in place xP

It seems that since I left, the new principle and new security guard had inferiority issues and decided to use their authority to make all the students stay outside the gates until 11am. It was a little before 10am and there was quite a number of people who've turned up much earlier already. D: So me, Debbie and Zoe turned to Siew Yen's house to wait.

Anthea, who just woke up, appeared 30 minutes later to fetch us back to school. After waiting for another 15 minutes, the gates are finally opened! I guess, to avoid us disturbing recess and students who were in class, they made us wait till 11am and then made us gather in the canteen. Rawrh. Lots of talking ensued while waiting for the teachers to come, which took another 10 minutes-ish. Classic!

The croooowd!

The desk of truth!

Cik Muriza wasn't around (sadz) so the add maths teacher is sitting in to pass out our results

Waiting anxiously!

And here is the moment of truth...

ZOMGWTHSTFUBBQ! (I haven't said that in a looong time :D)

5A+ and 5A! OWHSM!

It's only normal to aim for straight A's, but I was never really confident of getting it since you can't really tell what's the marking standard for SPM, and anything could happen! A "B" could ruin your streak! (been there, experienced that) So with this, I was honestly and pleasantly surprised! On top of that, I didn't have any A-! Pretty good for me! :D

After the "straight A" reality sunk in, then I started reading my marks. I had A+ for Bahasa Malaysia ZOMG. After 5 years in secondary school and getting A's only twice for BM, this was totally unexpected. I think I did exceptionally well in my essay ONLY during SPM. Pretty proud of the last BM essay I'll ever write, HAH. :B Out of my science subjects, I only got an A+ for Chemistry, which again was surprising! Chemistry is usually my weakest science subject. The lot of us made Pn. Tay very very happy today. :3

The line still awaiting their results!

Miss Top Student for SPM! :3

Slowly revealing the results like mahjong

Debbie obviously did well and got excited :D

Happy faces! (and shaved head woh!)

After chatting around, the Cina gang (me, Anthea, Siew Yen, Debbie, Zoe, Carmen, Yee Suen, An Jie, Sarah) went for lunch at SUMO!

9 of us and the driver fit into the small van owo

Eh, looking at menu ker resume?

The flurry of As :3

Busy reporting results to tuition teachers and kehpoh friends

Japanese phood! Nomnomz

Teh Cina Gang!


"Noo! Yegor will know how short I am!" Height difference =)

See? I'm so nice =)

Later, we walked to Baskin Robbins for dessert. Thanks Zoe for treating all of us! :3 It was kinda funny since we walked down the streets with our files and documents in hand. It looked as if we were going for some interview or something. xD (and after awhile, my battery died, yay!)



Crossing over to Taipaaaaan

When random inspiration strikes :D

Anonymous-man-in-business-suit-standing-at-the-side watches on as we pose =)

We discovered the mirror!

Mirror = win





After dessert, we went back to school to say thanks to more teachers and so some other stuff. I finally collected my lost IC from two years ago. It just happened to reappear again! My wallet and all the money is gone forever of course. The state of my IC was pretty bad, browning with the plastic coming off and the chip rusting a lil'. Then I went to the Koperasi where they were having interviews for probates! :P Did some interrogation, mofafafa.

It was a good day! Had lots of fun. It was nostalgic going back to school. I've only been away for 4 months after 5 years of schooling, but everything feels so different. (form 1s staring at us like sampat |D) Tomorrow is supposed to be another fun day, teehee!

Scholarships and money, here I come!
