You Feel Most Frustrated When...

When you underestimate something because you are already used to it, and you thought you are going to remember it foreverrr..Does it ring a bell to you? Well, it does to me.

I had my nth Chinese quiz yesterday, and I was hoping that I could get a perfect score (after a few times of slipping up.It's a decent dream, right?). By the way,I prepared for the quiz the night before and I came across a few familiar characters, which I have known since my first Chinese course. So...I ignored them (not that I totally overlooked them, but I didn't practice writing them as much). I was assured that I remembered every stroke correctly ..

What happened then?Thanks to my confidence that I forgot writing one of the so-called familiar characters during my quiz yesterday. And what did it imply?Good bye to my perfect score, again. Waa..It's been a long time since I saw my laoshi wrote 'Henhao'. Hahaha.

Moral of the story?Never ever thought you know well about something, or else you will really end up remembering them for the rest of your life.

Center of Attraction

If someone asked you, what's the landmark of Pennstate?

First- the lion shrine
Second- Old Main

And how does it feel if you become the center of attraction at Old Main?

Double Triple 'Capub' aka cari publisiti la kan..hehehe

Ye..we spent our evening at the Old Main lawn to commemorate Malaysia's Independence Day (which was about 2 weeks ago). it's more than 'capub' actually, because we did something that's worth a praise, something that we can be proud of. Even though not all Malaysians were there, but we still get a good number of attendees. What we did then?

We took pictures in front of Old Main, proudly holding a Malaysian flag..and also sang 'Negaraku' and 'Jalur gemilang'. Since we had a football match today, it's expected to see more parents walking around the campus. And of them was actually very interested in our get the extend that she took a picture of us singing Negaraku. Cool kan?

After the shoot, we headed off to Thomas Building for solat Asar and a movie show-Hati Malaya 1957. I left halfway through the movie and went back home with Zawa(sbb craving nak makan subway..ehehe). nevertheless, it's a wonderful and memorable evening. To be honest, this was my first real merdeka celebration at penn state. and I'm glad that I get the chance to do that before leaving for good....

p/s: Azreen actually recorded a video when we were singing Jalur Gemilang. i wish to get the vid from her and upload it on Youtube.
