Keeping promises

Been super duperly busy lately! Some good some bad here and there. First had to do a 12 week group assignment all alone in 5 days, which I'm not exactly proud of (yeah right..) but was partly my fault anyway (as if..). 1 thing we all can be assured of however, is that it wasn't great work at all. Well, we'll see anyway. Not to mention that the crazy time spent on it also screwed up my time greatly as I failed to stay up all night the night before it was due which made me sleep through the time of which was supposed to be utilized to send someone to the airport. Apologized to him already but just wanted to say it out loud again. Sorry! Happy Belated 20th also! (Don't think you read my blog but yeah) He managed to get to the airport anyway if you were all curious.

Just when you thought 5 days of hell was over, came not one, but 2 more assignments! Macro will be due on Thursday and auditing next Monday. Fortunately, had the weekend to relax! Although it should have been used for better purposes like studying for finals which start on the 10th of June or researching tonnes of stuff for my assignments, I kinda really needed a break from my life of assignments and stress. They're both not the same by the way, I don't quite get stressed from studies, just pressured. Some would know what has been really bugging me so... yeah.

So Saturday I debated! Ok, met up with Darren for lunch + supper on Friday but Saturday lunch had special guest Alvin James too! Nothing better than good friends to help you to have a good time relaxing! Other than family love and well, God of course. So yeah, I debated and won! First time in like blardy long time but that's not really the point. It's just something I love doing. Not the winning and glory and other lala stuff but more like the gaining knowledge, helping your other personal skills which are so so important in the future and the best, teaching others! Not really saying I'm as passionate or capable as some great teachers out there but its just pleasing to see results and what not. Being trainer for the club has been quite cool but that made me miss debating itself so yeah, I've said it.

Anyway, met up with Michael that night. For those who don't know who he is, he's this senior debater of mine who's like the best public speaker and humor debater Swinburne has. (Other than me of course) The only flaw he has is that he's (a Gooner) an Arsenal fan! Quite forgivable since we, Chelsea, beat them in our last match. Manure fans however are different. Back to where I was, it was good catching up with another debater who could really talk football how football was meant to be talked about! Other than Yang Yaw of course but he's a manure fan so you can see the difference. Listening to his adventures to Stamford Bridge and Emirates Stadium and the true football mad nation, England, not Malaysia, were the kind that made you want to live them out as well. Sigh. Well, Sunday there was Sematan but yeah, don't really need to say much about how to relax there. (except the stupid kayak that took in water)

Anyways, thank goodness Monday's a holiday too and although James left today, oh yeah! James left earlier in the evening and had so much drama. (I think) Him and friend work for MAS so wanted to get this 'jump seat' specially for them (staff) but had this other lady who wanted to misuse her position as the wife of some steward or something. They waited so long with patience and absolute gentlemen-ness the way people should really do these days instead of trying to misuse things or stuff in life for their own selfish benefits! Anyway, the 2 were rewarded and finally got their tickets 15 minutes before take off so they ran like marathoners to the check-in counters. Reminded me of the rush we debaters had in the Bangkok-KL flight early January. Was so late that I practically ran as well to the gate. Rushing for a flight, something you'd want to but should never experience. So yeah, that's the last I saw of James, until July then hopefully.

Time for me to fill in this thingy I was tagged for by Ida.

step- by- step
instructions: Remove ONE question from below, and add in your personal question, make it a total of 20 questions, then tag 8 people in your list, list them out at the end of this post. Notify them in their chat box that he/she has been tagged.

1. Do you believe in love at first sight?
Infatuation and interest that can lead to love yes. Knowing that that's the person you'll want to have kids and be with for the rest of your life? You've gotta be kidding me.

2. Do you eat without brushing your teeth?
What do you think? =D

3. Where is the place that you want to go the most?
Stamford Bridge, home of the Blues.

4. If you can have 1 dream to come true, what would it be?
Be a famous professional football player in the English Premier League for Chelsea Football Club!

5. Do you believe in seeing a rainbow after the rain?
Scientifically, yes. In reality, also yes. No point dreaming of the impossible but optimism's good

6 What will make you twirl in your room and roll on your bed and break out in screamo laughter?
In laughter I don't know, a great joke? But twirl in my room and roll on my bed, learning that my dream just came through.

7. If you win $1 million, what would you do?
Right now, leave it to my loving parents. They'd know how to use it better to care for my family. (to please others,) go to watch Chelsea win the Champions League in Moscow!

8. If you meet someone that you love, would you confess to him/her?
If it's appropriate for me to do so, yea. Appropriate meaning not whether I'm brave enough to confess but more or less, if it wouldn't really risk deteriorating our friendship.

9. Would you swim in a vat of chocolate?
No thanks. Though, come to think of it again, still no. =P

10. What is the stupidest (serious) thing you have ever done?
Doing something that ruined a friendship. =\

11. Which type of cars do u love the most?
Luxurious, sporty cars. Like, not a Merc, more like a BMW.

12. Which do you prefer from your other half? hug or a kiss?
Hug. Just feels so much ..... more. I'm speaking in intangible terms, if you were even wondering.

13. If you have faults, would you rather the people around you point out to you or would you rather they keep quiet?
Rather be told. I want to be liked and am open to criticism, if expressed the right way of course!

14. What do you think is the most important thing in your life?
Note= 'thing'. Something tangible. Football.

15. Are you a shopaholic or not?
Nah, unless its for football or a loved one when I'm in the mood or CNY.

16. What kind of electronic device/gadget you own that you like most?
(thinks of football..... TV!) Handphone. The means to talk to people without talking.

17. If you have a chance, which part of your character you would like to change?
Self-confidence. I think... SEE???

18. What makes you feel disappointed?
Short of confidence? haha. Not exactly disappointment but, yeah, heartbreaks.

19. If given a chance, do you want to see your future?
No! I'm the paranoid type that thinks of what will happen if I do this or that. Next thing you know, I'll be forever thinking of what to do next so that I can end up where I will be in that future I saw.

20. What's the best way to die in your opinion?
Not really how so I'd say, for a loved one. They'd somehow cherish their life and remember you. More importantly, THEY'D be alive. (just a thought) Imagine past soldiers or alike, dying for your country but not actually known or sometimes even appreciated by your own countrymen. Now that's, disappointment.

Wasn't that fun? =D Lucky people to be tagged, in alphabetical order, are:
1. Amanda (look who's laughing now lol sis!)
2. Carissa (waiting for you online now, what to do...)
3. Champton (you'd better be reading my blog you scouser)
4. James , Alvin (coz waited so long for you at airport)
5. June (then can make people like Stan and NC do this thing)
