Memories in Bukit Larut....

Good times are there to recall and cherish. And the trip to Bukit Larut is truthfully one of the best moments I had throughout my life in SMKB. This trip is a memory to be kept for the rest of my life.

All smiles and ready to go for our destination >>>>>

Around 4 hours after that, we reached taiping! Then, waited for another bus and went to Fang Jayne's grandparents' house.


4 quite-handsome guys posing their smiles, but I have no idea why ding hang close his eyes...

weee = victory
smile = happiness
we smile! Cheering our friendship forever!

forever friends!


our finger-licking good dinner.... cooked by the four of us in this photo!

feeling sunshine...

PS: When I see this post one day in future, I will recall all those smiles and nice memories! Friendship always remains despite not seeing each other....

Thinking of a better world

i find myself in love with something lately.....
i am in love with........ MUSIC.

Especially JAY CHOU'S MUSIC.

In the past, when you ask me who is my idol, i would say i myself am my own idol. But now, maybe it's sill the same, i am not sure. One thing i am sure is that i would say jay chou is my favourite singer.

Actually, listening to music is very relaxing. It can usually provoke certain feelings in us, depending on what kind of music we are listening to. And i am having this feeling now, because i have been listening to the following song, by jay chou.

Try this song if you are free. It's quite nice.

I was thinking of a question just now, "How to make this world a better place to live in?"

Better place does not refer only to peace and no war in each corner of the world. For me, it actually means more than that. A better place should be able to provide its people with happiness and joy. Peace alone does not guarantee joy.

It's not easy to create joyful atmosphere, and a better place for every single soul living on earth. Some say, war for peace, and tears for joy. We might need to put up a fight or struggle before we manage to make this world a better place. Years and years have passed, yet, is our world good enough to live in? Have we witnessed the beauty of this world? Have we created peace after all the wars that took place?

In fact, we don't really need wars and tears for peace and joy.

It's not that difficult to create peace and joy.

It's not a mission impossible.

All that is needed is our own self.

If we are sincere in making peace, we will see peace.

If we really want to have joy, we will not make our life miserable with all those worries.

Since happiness is abstract, it is usually a state of our mind. If we are optimistic enough, we will be happier. So, try to see possibilities out of impossibilities, opportunities out of adversities and inspiration out of every challenging situation, You will eventually create miracles out of obstacles.

This is exactly what we should do to lead a positive life. Be sunshine and fill your day with sunshine. Life is here to enjoy.

Speaking of peace, it's not that difficult to make peace without war. But it's not easy to create true peace, because true peace goes beyond a world without war. It's a world where everyone smiles genuinely to each other without any rivalry inside.

If we do wanna see real peace, we should put our heart and soul to work out the problems among us. Many problems can be solved without the slightest violence, or even without argument. It's just that we are often too irrational to see that truth. Humans are one of the extremely few species capable of heart-to-heart communication. Yet, why do we purposely lose this unique God-given ability by putting up a 'character mask' when we face our friends? Why do we need to fake ourselves when we communicate with each other?

Have we forgotten sincerity and honesty?


Living in a better world is many people's dream. But only a few have started working on it.

We definitely do not hope to see a beautiful world only in fantasy, a better world only in our dreams. A cluster of people have been perspiring to make this world more beautiful. Let's believe that their perspiration will be worthwhile at last.

But please, do not just believe without trying to achieve.

Wow, I have been going through ups and downs in these few days, beginning from the very first day of my trip to Bukit Larut on last Sunday till yesterday.

We (the 6B1 students) went to Bukit Larut to catch bugs for our Biology project. But, the truth is we spent more time playing......haha... and guess what, that's absolutely normal for us!

We started walking uphill on Saturday, after a night stay at Fang Jayne's grandma's house. According to scheduled time, we should have started our journey uphill on around 9am, but due to the jeep competition held by the government, our departure time was delayed to 3.30pm. OMG!

I had never thought about the problems that might arise due to the delay until I came to know that the walk uphill took a very long time. I actually heard that from the people who walked downhill. As time went by, my worry grew larger. I was afraid it would be dark before we managed to reached the peak.

And the worst thing to know was.... the journey is of 10km distance. WHAT?!

Everybody was exhausted even before we walked halfway. This was partly due to the fact that we had to carry a small bag (the large bags that contained our clothes were carried uphill by a trailer) with us.

Along the journey, I kept encouraging my friends. Don't get shocked - I sang at some points of my journey, hoping that this will energise them.

Soon, darkness fell and we were still far from destination. We had to use torchlight. We walked together, stopped and rested together, because at this point, we knew everything had to be done TOGETHER.

Among us, there were some who suspected that we went on the wrong direction. One of my friends said she was afraid there were some spooky things that made us circle around the same place. Wow, that's real eerie. But luckily she told me after the journey. I was very optimistic to assure them that we were indeed on the right track.

In fact, under such circumstance, where you are extremely tired and the journey ahead seemed to be never ending you will feel that hope is frail. Some of us did feel so. They began to lose hope. But we never gave up. We walked and rested a while, and resumed our walk. I told myself that I must keep going. I must have very strong mental power. And I then recalled a saying from Napoleon Hill, "Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve."

Finally, in complete darkness, I am proud to say that we saw light. For me, it's the very first time in my life that I feel so strongly with the saying "There's light at the end of every tunnel". Indeed, we saw the light. Tears came out from my eyes. I was very relieved. And I was all the more proud with our achievement.

A friend in need is a friend indeed. We saw true friendship in this situation. Those weaker ones were helped by their physically tougher friends. This is true friendship, friends who help and encourage each other in times of difficulties.

If not for this tiring walk, we would not have bonded together. If not for the darkness we were in, we would not have enjoyed such a beautiful city view at night. There's always blessing in every adversity that we face. This is very true and now I had personally experienced that.

I felt it's worth exhausting myself to walk uphill because I got to enjoy the beauty of the nature and the cool weather there. And I got to do all that with a group of true friends. All these really made my walk and tiredness worthwhile.

I have seen true friendship, and I am very proud of 6B1. Thanks all of you for giving me such a nice memory, especially when I was walking uphill.

Feeling down

Feeling down.....

I am feeling down right now, right here....

I have actually experienced this kind of feeling countless times before, it's just that I seldom blog about my feelings.

I don't really know why I feel down. I just know that....that I feel down and helpless...

Wow, I remember I have tried cheering up a friend of mine. We were chatting online and she said she was moodless. So, I tried telling her to smile and be happy. She told me it's not easy to cheer up when one feel down. And I have to admit that she was quite right. But still, I will self-motivate and recover very soon. haha...

After all, this is what life is all about. If life is always filled with happiness, we would never treasure happiness. And guess what, I found it sort of nice to feel down, especially when we are listening to sad songs. haha... In fact, listening to songs is one way to 'cure' your bad feelings. And I think the best way out is to write our feelings out. And that's why I blog about my feelings right now.

PS: This is parts and parcels of our lives. So, don't keep feeling down when you feel down. Smile and cheer up! lol!!!

Guess what I was listening?

This was the song!
