Labuan Made A Difference

Just one night in Labuan made a difference! I miss the place already! Afiq, Bahrin and Aziz were the only ones with me during the trip. It was really an adventure! We had our uncontrollable laughs, long walks, weary legs, our very own GeezPS, cameraman and dedicated athlete. Thing is, all of us lacked sleep - and I bet we still do! I saw a girl who looked ALMOST the same as Lisa Surihani (Her name's Umiyul and she's a staff at KFC. I hope she's still there when I visit again next time. Lol.)

90/10% LIKE THIS!!! I SWEAR!!

We stayed at Avida Hotel. Here's a quick picture of how the room looks like. Ours was a little bigger because we got the deluxe room - more like, sponsored. Hehehe!

Looks nice, doesn't it? The bed and the end table's positions are correct, but the not the curtain and window. When we reached here, we only had less than an hour of rest because in the room because we had to go to the sports complex for Bahrin's registration. We used a taxi, and boy, something funny happened in the taxi. Maybe the taxi driver thought Bahrin was Chinese. He was old. When we reached our destination and we asked for the fare, he spoke in Chinese. I understand a little Chinese, but he spoke so fast that I wasn't able to catch a word that he was saying - maybe "KWAI LE", but I don't think that makes sense. Or does it? Bahrin just gave him RM10 and off we went.

One word: EPIC. It seems like I can't go any further because the rest of the things that happened were exciting! Thanks for reading anyway, guys! I know it sucks that I can't blog about it all during my time there. Maybe I'll update bit by bit sooner or later!

You Are Perfect.

I had the most exciting dream yet about time-travelling! This is the second time, and this time, I was in my former school, St. Andrew's. It was snowing. It all happened so fast, yet I can still remember how it felt like to be walking around the snowy atmosphere. I was "dropped" in the school's hall. Some kids were running around playing tag and some were in a circle. My brother was with me. I overheard him in a conversation with a girl. (It looked like my cousin, but I'm not sure.) He was asking whether she knows One Direction or not. That girl yapped on and on about the nonexistence of this "1D" boy band. I got tired so I decided to find out about the girl that's always been on my mind lately. I went outside, drawing my coat tightly because of the cold, cold weather. It looked and felt something like this...

Yes, I'm quite sure it looked like that because just as I was running towards my first destination, the basketball court, I got my hands in my pockets and my head down. Before even reaching the court, I turned and went back to look in the school's compound. Surprisingly, there she was! - standing out among the crowd through my eyes. I can't believe she was actually there! Words can't express how happy I was to see her! I waited out in the pouring snow until she came out, which she did. I approached her and we spoke about how it's been a very long time coming. Unbelievably, it was in the year 2005! I could mention a few people who were with me during that time, but I can't be so sure. All I have to say is that it felt perfect! You are perfect..

Saviour Of The Night

Hello! I'm sleeping over at Memet's tonight. Really sorry for not updating that much. Internet hasn't been "available" at my place lately. Broadband, to be honest, is such bore. Besides, it won't work on my laptop lately. I have no idea. (I have probably mentioned this in the previous post, haven't I?) Anyways, I'd like to congratulate Chelsea for winning against Barcelona at the Bridge in the 1st leg of the Champions League semi-final! The 2nd leg will commence next week where Chelsea will travel to Camp Nou to face the crucial Catalans. I hope Chelsea will defend as good as they did during the 1st leg, or better, maybe!

Drogba's goal from a Ramires pass into the box. Tricked 3 Barcelona players!

Ashley Cole = Saviour of the night!

Well, I guess I should really update more so I could share what's happening lately. My birthday's in 3 days. (Just saying. Hehehe!) Thanks for reading, guys! Before I go, let me post the Owl of the Month!

If Video Games Were Real 2.

Hello! It's been a long time since I've posted up something new in this very blog of mine. Broadband connections rarely work anymore on my laptop. I don't know why. Well, right now, I am happily surfing the net. I'm sleeping over at Omar's tonight. I am exhausted! My neck is having some kind of pain, probably because of yesterday's match!

Oh! Speaking of yesterday's match, we won 6-3 against LCB UFC! I scored the second goal of the game for Cobra! The rest are lucky shots. It's all about the skills and timing. Thanks to those who came to support! Thanks to those who assisted really well on the field. You know who you are!

Maybe I'll just post up a new Smosh video which was released a few minutes ago!
