I'm so hungry. Haven't had breakfast yet. Don't really feel like it, though. I'm also feeling sleepy. Had to wake up at 6:00 this morning (oh come on, it's a holiday). Was told that a friend was going to pick me up. She ended coming at 8:00. I could've slept some more!!! Why so early? Going where? Airport. We saw Mervyn off...I still can't believe it. He's gone to Singapore already. Christmas won't be the same without him. No one will drive us around in a Honda Civic on Saturday nites anymore. He won't be here to celebrate Christmas with us...

Yesterday, the whole house was busy hunting for pests. My mom was like "there are mice around". So we turned the house upside-down just looking for them. In the end, we found them. A whole family of them. There was papa mouse (probably), mama mouse, and 5 baby mice. My mom had all 5 of them...sleep for good. The parent mice were more elusive...they even escaped the claws of my cat when we brought it into our house. So, we set a trap, the bait being a banana. And hey, it worked. This morning, mom caught mama mouse and had her (the mouse) bath really hot water. Really hot. Mom said it gave out 3 squeaks before it died. Mom was really reluctant to kill them. But they are pests, bad animals.
And this afternoon I myself had pest termination session again. This time it was a plastic bag of roaches. Literally. There were tens and tens of them in there. I had to use a long stick to prod them out of the bag. When they did eventually came out of the bag, I stepped on them hard. No mercy. Call me a roach terminator, but they're sickening. Ugh
. Of course I couldn't kill them all. Some managed to escape into small spaces where my feet couldn't reach. Damn them all.
BTW, my hair's condition is improving. It is not as oil-dry as before. And it's not too poofy too. So it did work. Hmmm
Anywhere But Here Track 6 on Hilary Duff: Metamorphosis
When I'm in a crowd
Or on an island by myself
Silent or too loud
Wishing I was somewhere else
And I can't believe
You hit me fast and hard
When you turn to me and say
Never change the way you are
Trying to catch your eye
Things will never look the same
Now I can't deny
You're the moth and I'm the flame
There I go again
I should walk before I run
How can I explain
I can't stop what you've begun
I'm falling through the door
Flying 'cross the floor
When you look at me suddenly it's clear
You're burning up my dreams
Crazy as it seems
I don't wanna be anywhere but here
Anywhere but here
What goes on inside
Is a mystery no doubt
A roller coaster ride
I may never work it out
Here's the brand new me
Skates around and floats on air
I'm a sight to see
Rainbow colors in my hair
You have set me free
The one who gets me there
Here is the place where
My head is spinning
Time is beginning
To race away
You come to throw me
Knock me off my feet
You give me wings to fly
The world goes crashing by again

is coming soon! Not that I really care anyway.
The end of this year is coming, and I have already come up with a few new year resolutions. I will post it up on January 1. There's nothing much to write now as my days are uneventful. Nothing extraordinary our weird happened to me.
This is probably all I'm gonna write. Byes!

my favourite day...Why did they have to stop Alias
??? Why couldn't they just have shown the second season??? Damn you people!!! I miss seeing Jennifer Garner kick some serious ass. I miss seeing her going undercover...and especially the suspense! It's the element of the show. I miss it a lot!
Right now, I'm trying to treat this hopelessly dry hair of mine. I read a book which said to avoid washing the hair at night
. I, all this time, have been washing it twice a day, morning and night. Maybe that's why my hair is dry. The oil always gets washed away. My hair feels better now. It does feel less dry. Besides that, the book also said to use a mild shampoo
. How mild is mild? It Johnson's baby shampoo mild, or is it too
mild? How I wish my hair was like everyone else's. But there's a plus side: my hair is "un-shape-able", so says my friends. They say no matter how hard the wind whips my hair, it stays the way it is
. Not so true now though.
Anyways, enough about my hair. It's just so frustrating. *arghhhh
* Oh well, I should be thankful that I have hair. Are you?

Yesterday was baby Juliet's birthday, and so she is 2 years old. She was cute, really, in her tiny maroon dress. When we put the cake in front of her, she freaked. I didn't think the cake was that
bad. I think it was the candles that freaked her out. The flickering flame? Maybe that was what she was afraid of. Fire.
Went for music lessons today. My violin teacher drilled
me through all the scales...tiring ah. I really hate it when he says, "one more time," and/or, "again." He makes me repeat the same scales over and over again. *arghhhhhhhh
I've been practicing for the Christmas Cantata. I wonder if it's still on...hehe
. Maybe it's not a cantata at all. Who knows? Anyways, there was this running part consisting of many semiquavers (they aren't that bad, unless you're playing in 129-140 crotchet beats in a minute). I had trouble playing it before, but now I've improved drastically! I can play it with one eye closed (not both
eyes, not yet).
Kewl. Just heard something on the radio. Scientists have created a special powder that can make clouds disappear. They have airplanes fly above, say, some stormclouds and then they drop the powder on the clouds. The clouds will disappear because the powder absorbs the water droplets of a cloud. Then, it will turn into gel and fall to the ground harmlessly. It's 100% biodegradeble and can dissolve in sea water. Kewl eh? I wonder what else will they do.
Well then, that's all for today. Ugh

Heh. Went to the Ecumenical Center yesterday for a dedication service. The center is one big (and I do mean big) building where all Christian denominations in Kuching can meet and worship together as one.
What I was amazed by was the worship sessions. I was deeply moved by the music and felt like letting go...but I was afraid of what others would think of me. It was different. They had drums and stuff, a complete band. At first I felt weird because I rarely get to go to worships with a band. But a while later, I loved it. Something new.
Oh well. I had nothing to do so I put new stuff up on my blog. Hope you guys like it!

Love Just Is Track 8 on Hilary Duff: Metamorphosis
When the night won't fall and the sun won't rise
And you see the best as you close your eyes
When you reach the top as you bottom out
But you understand what it's all about
Nothing's ever what it seems
In your life or in your dreams
It don't make sense, what can you do
So I won't try makin' sense of you
Love just is...what ever it may be
Love just is...you and me
Nothing less and nothing more
I don't know what I love you for...love just is
When you ask to stay and then disappear
It seems you're gone but you're really here
When every move seems out of place
But every kiss is filled with grace
Some things never get defined
In your heart or in your mind
It don't make sense, what can you do
So I won't try makin' sense of you
Don't ever ask me for reasons
I can't get to you
Don't ever ask me for reasons
Why I live for you...I just do
Repeat second stanza

I took a personality test my friend said was not so reliable. Here are the results:
HELPER WHO FINDS MISSING CHILDREN OVER THE INTERNET
Like just 10% of the population you are a HELPER WHO FINDS MISSING CHILDREN OVER THE INTERNET (SICF). You are very tentative in the world and introverted with people--which means you are the shy and silent type. Hence the Internet. But behind your reserved exterior lies a dedicated person with a passion for the concrete truth who wants to, in his heart of hearts, help find missing children. God bless you.

We're going to watch Matrix Revolution tonight! The grand finale of the movie.

Saturday is the day I always look forward to. That's when I can get closer with my God. Why else would I go to church? Oh yeah. I've got important things to do too.
Choir practice, although tiring, was fun (for me). We got to sing a song we haven't sung for like a year. The title's Little town with Emmanuel.
Very upbeat and lively, I say. There's also the challenge of tackling the piano playing for that song. I tell you, it isn't easy, this particular song. In fact, most
of the other Christmas Cantata songs are like difficult
. Go ahead and ask any other good pianists around. Guess I'll have to practice hard in this two months time. Wait. I don't even have two months. I have like less than a month! Die oh
Some of the Youth were picked to become Camp Leaders. I was glad to see some first-timers, like Veronica, Linda, and Wycliffe. It's good to see other people handling stuff. There's only one problem to this camp: the numbers. We're afraid only a handful will actually join this spiritually enriching camp. The leaders have already put in effort...now it's up to the Youth. It's kinda of difficult to get them to join. It's really not their fault. After all, it is the holiday season, and many of them are going to balik kampung
or travelling. I just pray that there will be enough participants, or more for that matter, joining the camp.
Some of us are going to watch Matrix Revolutions, hopefully, this Wednesday. I'm like "hanging" since Reloaded. It's a continuation and I really want to continue to the end. It has gotta be one of the BEST movies out there. Another must-watch movie is LotR, Lord of the Rings. Also kinda the ending of the LotR Trilogy.
Getting real sleepy right now...waiting for my parents to travel back from Lubuk Antu...one of those far far away places (approx. 4 hrs away from Kuching). *yawn*

Friday night...resting night. And a full moon night. As I told one of my friends, there be werewolves roaming the city tonight. I also told my friend that I won't be getting enough sleep tonight. I'll be hunting werewolves. Vampires mortal enemy. That's only if you're in Underworld or something. In any case, I'm not. I'll definitely be hunting werewolves, that's for sure. In my dreams lah
Why am I ranting on about fantasy crap? Well, for one thing, I can't seem to get enough of it. My mind's really *great* too. Vivid imagination. Detailed imagery. Surround sound (Dolby Digital). Resolution? Infinity. It's totally clear and colourful.
I don't just have a vivid imagination, but also a mind that can create all kinds of stories (which keep me awake at night). Sometimes I wish I can just turn it off like a television. Unfortunately, that is something I can't do...and because of that, I can lose my concentration, esp. during class time. But since school's over, I can just daydream and fantasize about anything I want. Usually the good ideas come out just before I go to sleep. That's when my mind is relaxed. It's weird. The ideas come when you're most relaxed.
Anyway, I better go and sleep. Everyone else in the house has already. I scared kena marah
(get scolded). There be werewolves to hunt this night!

**Read the bottom one before this.
I've just remembered what it I forgot. A few days ago, I lost some hearing in both ears because of some thick phlegm build-up in my nose and throat. This morning I woke up sick. I'm down with sorethroat. My friend came over this morning and said my voice sounded hoarse. My nose was like plugged with booger and...you know. It's much better now after I drank lots of fluids, albeit my throat still feels "itchy". It hurts. Where's Strepsils
when you need it?
And just now, I kicked a durian. A durian
. Stupid, eh?
?dael had a question at 8:26 PM
I'm so sorry. Hehe. I know I haven't blogged (and I know I did promise some people). Well, here's today's one after a week. Yes! I know. It's been a long long time. I just *couldn't* find the time. Yes. Real busy.
Anyway, school's out and I'm like not as *thrilled* about it anymore. I'll be facing two months of hols!!! Woohoo
! But it's not really a rest kinda holiday. I've got things to prepare for. Firstly, there's the Christmas Cantata. **Headache**Secondly, wait. There is no secondly. Oh, there is, if you count the upcoming Youth Camp. It's gonna be a no-brainer, I think. But we will manage, as we always do.
Oh yeah. I've got a finger (which happened to be the middle one) on my right hand which is hurt. Yeah. Hurt sounds like an understatement. Nvm. We prefects were cleaning up after prize-giving ceremony. I saw the nail. I did, I really did. Maybe my hand didn't. Anyway, I reached out, and the nail pierced my flesh. That wasn't the worst part. The worst part was when I *pulled* my finger back. Then there was a deep scratch. I pressed my finger, to let it bleed. I was afraid the nail was rusty. I really squeezed it. I don't wanna get tetanus. My finger's fine now. I had a Dettol bandaid on it. It doesn't hurt until pressure is applied on it. *Ouch*
There were things worth being mentioned but due to some unknown reason, I seemed to have forgotten what those things were. How forgetful. There are things that I *want* to mention...but I shouldn't mention it. Don't ask what and why. I'm not opening my mouth (or typing for that matter).
Well then, I hope you guys who so **faithfully** visit my not updated blog will forgive me. I know you guys will. I know you all too well. Kidding. Good nite.
