Merentas Desa.
Photos with my classmates who also got medals (only 1st to 5th placings get medals).. Except for Shaun, he got 6th and was a bit disappointed when he found out that he wasn’t able to get a medal..

So out of his good friend’s comfort, Shaun got to take photos with his friend’s gold medal =) In a way, I felt touched when I saw Deshon trying to cheer Shaun up.. by affirming words and little acts of brotherly love.

Yeah, from left to right.

CNY.
You know, the normal stuff done every year. What can I say about that. Haha. But this year’s one is slightly different, because my Korkor is getting married. Yay! So, relative visits… discussion on that subject matter. Tea ceremony, wedding dinner, etc. Pretty interesting.

As for meeting up with friends. Well, too bad Cat was in Malacca. Few of us met up, Yuh Hui, Lee Hong, Yvonne, Jae-Yenn. We went to the funfair. Not very convincing for me. Haha. Because the last time I went in Form Three, I wasn’t exactly satisfied. And spent a lot of money. A lot. At least for me.

Anyway. Jae-Yenn did some miracle work. And I headed there. Okay, being such an anti-funfair person for three years… I have to admit that I had a good time. Maybe except the part when I felt to “ish” for forgetting to bring my camera. Haha.

But yeah. It was fun. Mainly because there was Yuh Hui who wanted to ride Vortex with me! Yeah. At last someone. An applause to Jae-Yenn and Lee Hong, who in the end, rode it too. It’s really cool kay. To be spun around in the air. Hahha.

Now for some FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions).

1. SMKTHO is a sports school. (Yes, I know a lot of questions are popping out of your mind like jagung)

1.1 Are all the students there athletes?

No. Not yet. But will be soon. For now, enrollment for sport students only start from Form One students this year.

1.2 Are all the other students been transfered out of the school?

No. Only two to four classes of each form, except Form Six.

1.3 Will the school still take in Lower Six students?

For this year, yes. Until when, I’m uncertain. We have currently six classes. They will cut down to four classes.

2. Is my school until 4.30 pm?

No. Not for now. Uncertain when it will start. Hopefully never.

3. Are you excited about your brother getting married?

Hmm. Well… a little. But when I think of camp, especially APYAC (Asia Pasific Youth Alive Conference).. then the excitement vanishes? Hahaha.

Yeah, that’s all.

I like green, by the way =)

I don’t know

How come small little incidents can affect me so much.

Like make me feel so baaadddd and terrrrriiiiibbbblllleeeeeee.

Especially if it is my fault but not exactly my fault.

Urgh.

I know what’s done is done, but why do I tend to worry so much? Of what the other party would think?

Right now I feel terrible terrible terrible.

But I’m trying not to?

URGH.

Is it even an AGM?

“Kamu semua rumah ape?”
“Omega…”
“Skali lagiiii…”
“Omega!”
“Ape? Tak dengar lah… Rumah ape?”
”OMEGA!”
”Ah, barulah betol..”

Today we had our house AGM at 8 am. We walked down to the canteen, found a place to sit. Waited for the others to arrive. Few minutes later, a male teacher who was my former MUET teacher (who also, hasn’t returned last year’s MUET end year exam paper) greeted all of us, OMEGA-ians.

Then the head teacher of OMEGA said a few words. The most disturbing thing was happening at the same time. Two Form 6 Malay girls were standing in front beside a lady teacher, one of them holding a pen and a paper, pointing towards other students and then writing on the paper.

“Don’t tell me those two in front are going to be the house captain..”
“Huh? Teacher straight away choose?”
“No lah, I don’t think so.”
“Maybe they are suggested candidates and we can add on.”

Not having an inkling of what they were exactly doing, my group of friends and I feared the worst and hoped the most. After much talk, my former MUET teacher suddenly pointed towards me. He asked me to come to the front. I did and wrote my name on the paper, beside this: AJK Tingkatan 6.

While writing my name, I took a glimpse of what was already written on it. Above were the list of the other committee members, starting from the house captain.

As soon as I got back to my place, I told them the news. We were all shocked. Yes, our greatest fear became our nightmare. The two girls standing in front are the house captain and assistant. And the rest of the committee were Malays. I was the only Chinese. Or let’s say, non-Muslim.

Back in class, I asked other mates how their house AGM was conducted. It was almost the same.

It disturbs me. It did disturb me the rest of the day in school.

Why can’t we choose our own candidates and vote? How can the teacher select the head? And allow the head to choose her own committee? If not for my formal MUET teacher, would it be reined with Malays? Why can’t they let athletes lead the house? Even if they want to select their own, why can’t they at least check out past records of the Form 6 students, see if they are athletes? Still, where is the liberty of voting? Why must they be control freaks?

What is wrong with this school?

Oh yes. I remember the principal telling us during assembly on Monday, that as a student of SMK TUN HUSSEIN ONN, we MUST be proud and glad and joyful and thankful that we are offered to study in this school called SEKOLAH SUKAN. Oh, wonderful I tell you! Amazing! I’m overjoyed!

By the way, it’s not that I am a racist. I’m just overly discouraged to see how the school teachers get things done. And if ever the issue of racial harmony is brought up during assembly, all that is said is redundant and they do not have the slightest idea of what they are doing.

and a year ahead.

There’s a reason.
A reason.
That holds it all back.
But is there one to not miss you?

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”

Hebrews 12:1-3
