Smaller ?

This is a photo of my sister and I when we went to National Science Center, Kuala Lumpur. sister is taller than me even though I wore a 3 inches wedges shoes... :(

When my younger sister came back from her boarding school yesterday for Deepavali break, she told me that her friends and herself talked about me on the previous day. Her friends said that I am the smallest elder sister they've ever met. They met me when I followed my younger sister and her friends on their trip to go to Genting Highlands during the last mid year school break. I was asked to accompany and have an eye on my sister since she's still underage, 16 years old. But actually, all of them are 16 years old and the eldest is me, 17 years old. I wasn't 18 yet at that time. So, I was actually underage as well.

Since I was the eldest, her friends thought that I'll be the one taking care of all 8 of them. Of course, I would be glad to take care of them as well. However, they were shocked to see my size which is smaller than theirs. Besides, I am shorter than my younger sister. While we were in Genting Highlands, her friends were actually worried about me because they said I looked very young looked like a small kid despite my age. They're scared that I might be lost somewhere. So, they've to follow me anywhere I wanted to go. As for me, I thought they followed me because my words ruled since I am the eldest. But actually...haish...

In addition to their conversation, my sister told them that I'm always behave like a small kid, very childish. My younger brother who's 12 years old also said the same thing. Not only these 2 people...actually, there's a lot of people out there, my friends obviously thought that I am the youngest in my family for the very same reasons :
1) I am small in stature (my height is primary school kid's height I guess since my younger brother is taller than me)
2. I am childish (can't help's natural...)

Deep inside my heart, I am very happy when people think that I am younger than my actual age. Some people even think that I am still studying in school when it is a fact that I graduated from high school 2 years ago. I look young !! ^_^

However, I feel sad when people think twice before trusting me ( in terms of making a decision and taking care of someone ) because I always behave like a small kid. So, people always think that my mind is like a small kid's, can't be relied on. I might make unnecessary decision.

Oh please...I might be small in stature, behaves like a small girl, and whatever...but my wits is on the same level as the people of my age. I can think wisely, make a good decision, and of course, lead people. Please do not think that I am always cheerful because I am just like a small kid, can easily forget things. Don't even think of bullying me because I always keep unhappy things to myself. Once I reach my limit, I'll explode. I do have lots of things that I hate so much !

Up and Down in a Day

Today, I had C++ test in the morning. I thought it would be easier than the first one since Pn. Saidatul said that we must score this paper to cover our final. This means that the final paper would be the toughest of all. However, it turned out that this paper was also tough ! Most of it was about writing programs. ARGHHH !!! I could not answer 3 questions...die la...all three are writing programs. I felt like crying in the exam hall. I could not even figure out the algorithm. Without the algorithm, I cannot come up with a program. I can't write a program. My hands were shaking when I came out of the hall. Not because of the air-cond, but because C++ had attacked my heart with tsunami. Until now, I still feel unease about the paper.

Right after the test, I went back home. I took KTM commuter. Lucky for me, when I reached Shah Alam station, a train to KL Sentral arrived. Unfortunately, I don't know why there were so many people this afternoon in the train. Usually, I could always sit because trains are not crowded. This time, I had to stand all the way from Shah Alam to KL Sentral with my stuffs in the middle of adults (I guess they're older than me).

Around 1 something I reached KL Sentral. With my heavy bags, I climbed the stairs to go to the other platform because escalator full :(( . When I reached at the port where people were waiting to board the trains, I noticed that a guy who wore a mask were looking at me. But when I looked at him, he turned away. At first, I had to stand because they were no more place to sit. But after about 5 minutes, the seat next to that guy was empty. So, without hesitation, I sat next to him. However, I faced the other way because he looked suspicious since he wore a mask and he were looking at me when I was standing. The train delayed. So, I took out my notes to read. Before that, I put my train ticket inside my ID card holder. But I just read a few lines, then the guy interrupted me with the question, "Student INTEC ke ?". I replied, "Ye. Awak pun ke ?" He said yes. So, the conversation going on for about 10 minutes until we boarded on the train. He knows that I am from INTEC when he saw my ID card (I forgot that the ID card was still hanging on my neck). He is in Japanese program. We talked about lots of things, about INTEC and the students. When we boarded the train, we separated. I sat on a side, meanwhile he sat on the other side. Since my stop is Serdang, which is before his stop, Kajang, therefore I went out of the train first. Before I exited, I smiled at him. Hopefully I can still recognize him if I happen to see him again in INTEC. Hopefully, new friend! But I just recognize his eyes since he wore a mask. Or else, hopefully Mr Mask can still recognize me. ^_^

Aqua Explorers live in Aquaria

Today, I went out to KLCC. Not for shopping, but for educational purposes. This was the first time I went to Aquaria, KLCC. It was so much fun ! The marine and jungle life in there are so unique, weird and cute ! Even their names are also funny ! Some species have names (local name) like "ikan yu bodoh". So funny !

I went there with the other 4 of my groupmates in Biology who are Nabiha, Hema, Ying Ji, and Beverly. Just before we started our recording for the documentary and while waiting for Aquaria to be opened (we were early by 40 minutes), we discussed outside Aquaria about our group name and etc for the documentary. After coming up with lots of "ntah apa2" names, we finally decided to choose AQUA EXPLORERS. Who are Aqua Explorers ? We are !

We did lots of things in there since we were in Aquaria for like...4 hours ! At first, we were quite blur because we didn't know where to start first. Aquaria has different sections which are all nice ! Around 11.15 am, we got to see the workers feeding piranha fishes. Later, we went to DNA corner, the only site that visitors can touch certain marine life. We touched starfishes, horseshoe crabs, "ikan yu pasir", sea cucumber and a few others. We also got to see how starfishes was fed. The way starfishes were fed was unique.

Then, we moved on to jungle are where we saw different species of jungle animals (small ones). Later, we went to freshwater region, where we were welcomed by a very big fish tank which contains lots of freshwater fishes. So nice ! At one part of freshwater region, there was a small part for Amazon fishes. After that, we moved to the best place in Aquaria : seawater tunnel (manmade). Here, there were lots of marine life which I've never seen in my life before ! I mean in front of my eyes. These animals are very cute !! There were also divers who went into the seawater tank to feed the animals. We were also lucky because we were guided by Mr. Nur Iskandar, an Aquaria's Customer Service Assistant who spent time with us in explaining about the animals that can be found in Aquaria. Besides, he also willingly became our photographer. Thanks, Mr Iskandar !

Around 2pm, after finished recording and took lots of photos, we went out of Aquaria. Too tired already...however, the experience was truly unforgettable ! Thanks Nabiha, Hema, Ying Ji and Beverly for your cooperation ! Love you guys very much ! Love AQUA EXPLORERS ! ♥
