Cross-country running

11 Feb

Today was the cross-country running competition of my school, and I thought that their real intention were supposed to be making up classes (?) for the CNY Holiday.

Reached school at 7.22 am. I’ve never been appointed to any task or duty or whatever, so I got to run for crying out loud. The distance for the whole school was 5km. But seriously it’s just a short distance for me. But it also took me about 50 minutes to finish it.

Categories:

  • P1 – Grade 11 and 12 girls (Perempuan Tingkatan 5 dan 6)
  • L1 – Grade 11 and 12 boys (Lelaki Tingkatan 5 and 6)
  • P2 – Grade 9 and 10 girls (Perempuan Tingkatan 3 dan 4)
  • L2 – Grade 9 and 10 boys (Lelaki Tingkatan 3 and 4)
  • P3 – Grade 7 and 8 girls (Perempuan Tingkatan 1 dan 2)
  • L3 – Grade 7 and 8 boys (Lelaki Tingkatan 1 and 2)

The rules were those who completed the run in 40 minutes get to contribute one mark to their respective sport teams (red, yellow, green, blue and purple). Not to mention that the first place of each category get to contribute more points lah. So I was quite annoyed that I never got to run to the finishing line in the required time.

Everyone were given a coupon for redeeming drinks and food the previous day before the cross-country running. When I went to the counter to redeem water and food, much to my diastase that they only offer bottled water. WE PAID 5 RINGGIT AND YET YOU ONLY GAVE US  BOTTLED WATER. 

I also had a great and fun time with my friend. She’s very nice (she treated me food) and we talked like dunno how many topics today (anime, dog, flower shop and valentines day wtf, songs etc). I’ve never been so talkative lately. I don’t really talk with people, except with people that have knowledge and wisdom and my close friend. I really am grateful to her for accompanying me along the run.

During the prize giving ceremony, I never really paid attention to the cheers and everything. Just what am I doing here, it’s nothing got to do with me. Was what I thought most of the time. And some more why the Green House (Yes, I’m in the Green House.) must sit under the scorching hot sun while the Purple and Blue Houses respectively get to sit under the shady place? Green House must be super dimwit to choose that place at first.

I got somewhat frustrated and just dragged my friend to the shadier place at the staircase or walkway. I also cursed myself why am I so dumb? And why be so hard on yourself? Just  sit anywhere will do except UNDER THE SUN. 

The whole event ended at about 12.30 pm with the singing of the school song.

Below I’m gonna break some inside news (I think). Just overheard a conversation between a boy and a girl. I’m just the third party to give away everything the boy said. I’m not the witness or anything, so what the boy said may not be true or genuine.

That guy (teacher) so racist lah. I ran to the finishing line in the required time but that teacher never recorded down my name and gave me the number card (what place you are in the run). Another woman teacher beside him said that there’s still time left but the guy just ignore it and my presence. But that teacher gave the number card to the Malay (I think) boy when some other teacher shouted 3…2…1!

So all,

Chinese New Year’s Atmosphere

21 Jan

The school is playing CNY songs during recess time and everyone were like THE SCHOOL IS GOING ON  A MORE TRENDIER PATH? It seems like good idea to promote Chinese New Year. -_- But you know that during recess time, it was so noisy already and you still wanna play songs in a maximum volume mode? Ridiculous. For those who wanted to have some concentration reading or doing homework or whatsover, will be grumbling. Yeah right, good work.

When come to CNY, people will be rushing back to their hometowns to reunite with their family and loved ones. And here’s one tip – don’t rush and drive at maximum mode to go back because your loved ones will be waiting for you no matter what. You don’t really want them to cry over your dead body, right?

Another great thing about CNY is food and ‘angpaos’ (or Red Packet, is a monetary gift which is given during holidays or special occasions.) You have Mandarin Oranges, Yee Sang, Nian Gao, noodles, fish, sweets and many more cuisines. But I love Egg Roll the most, it’s called ‘Kuih Kapit’ by locals.

(Go Google for pictures. Thanks :))

Many children love to receive red packets during CNY because it’s a great opportunity to ‘earn money’ for them. The delightfulness of receiving money is hard to describe. It’s a mixture of happy and just happiness of I CAN BUY THE THINGS I LOVE (but not me, duh). I also love to collect red packets because of the beautiful designs on them.

I’m not sure if I’m going back to my father’s hometown but I can be sure that the CNY this year will not be a happy one as expected because of alot of grumblings and all.

SO HAPPY CNY, FOLKS!! 😀

Cons of Orientation Day

26 Dec

Pssst. My one-shot finished. (FINALLY) Click on ‘meme’ at the top right of my blog to check it out or click here!

If you don’t know what’s orientation day, it’s a day you welcome the newcomers in the school. Basically it’s the day the newcomers get to know the school environment, history, administration and rules.

After the conversation with my sister, I found out that having an orientation at school is super duper pointless. The newcomers of the school can explore the school many times they want as they will be receiving their education for five years at the same place. (Malaysia’s education scheme for secondary education is five years, mind you) 

As for the school rules and history, teachers can explain to them during the study time or leftovers time when school starts.  There’s no need to call newcomers to come to school a day during the holidays to explain to them. Who would love to come anyway, and it’s in the morning. Hell! Need to wake up early some more, no fun at all. (Grade 7 or Form 1 to Grade 8 or Form 2 in Malaysia are afternoon session)

It’s a waste of electricity, man power, energy, water and many other resources. Not a very wise choice. 😦

Electricity – In the hall: LCD screens, lightings, the PA systems, air-conditioners. And various places in school.

Man power – Security guards, teachers-in-charge, prefects, students who were performing (the school band and the oriental music club), school administration workers and janitors

Energy – Man power’s energy

Water – At various places in school.

My school’s orientation day is on the 28th of December, that’s the day after tomorrow. I need to go help out something. Ugh! Time to sign off, goodnite. 🙂
