I've been having friends walking by me throughout my life journey. I've always enjoyed making friends as it widens my perception about people, they way they think and I've also learnt to accept their different characters. I've got different group of friends from all walks of life. For example, I've got a group of friends from my primary school, another group from my lower secondary and another one from upper secondary. I also have got friends who are friends of my siblings, online friends and finally now my college friends. All these friends of mine have played a major part in my life as they are the cause for it to be very much exciting and interesting than it was supposed to be.. I've been lucky in the sense that my friends have always turned out to be those helpful ones. If I am to mention one friend in specific, it would take some time for me to think of one. This is because all my friends have been very understanding and they have been willing to listen to all my problems. Moreover, some are able to feel it even without me mentioning I've got a problem. I had a friend saying "u can always tell me about your problems, I'm willing to hear" a few days back. I felt very touched and honoured to have been gifted with friends like them. Thank you all so much for making my life more meaningful. I'll always remember that no matter what happens, I'll have at least one reliable person whom I can look up to one day...May we be friends forever!! ^_^
Last weekend was a busy one for me as my cousin, who was more like my own brother got married. His wedding ceremony took place in a small town in Johor, called Tangkak. My family and I had decided to leave for Tangkak earlier to help out with the wedding preparations and so we did. My parents arrived at about ten in the morning. Soon after fetching me, we left for Tangkak. It was quite a long journey. I spent my time in the car watching a documentary, which was Bowling For Columbine. I had to watch it because it was part of my English lesson's task. My lap top came in very handy during this time. We reached Tangkak in the evening and we started with the preparations soon after reaching as there were still a lot left to be done. But it was fun and enjoyable because we did everything together...At night, after I was done with the preparations, I started with my homework and revision. I had to bring my books along because I had to prepare for my upcoming test and I was loaded with lots of homework. I had no other choice than to lock myself up in one of the rooms and deal with my work. I was only able to finish up my work at about three thirty in the morning. The very next morning we were very busy caring out the ceremonies before the wedding as normally the Indians have to carry out a number of ceremoniesbefore the wedding. The wedding ceremony went on very well. It was an unforgettable moment.

It was the 15th of January when Ina, Shikin, Mathilda and I decided to spend the day in Bukit Bintang. We forced ourselves off the bed after having slept for less than 5 hours. We rushed to the nearest bus stand to stop a taxi as that was our only mean to Kelana Jaya LRT station... And we managed to get one after a few minutes of waiting. We then took a train to Putra LRT station to get Shikin's return ticket to Kelantan. We being girls just could not resist looking at the small stalls, that sold ornaments as we walked pass by them. We spent almost an hour looking at these small stuffs but finally ended up leaving these stalls empty handed due to dissatisfaction. It keeps occuring to me, what on earth were we doing there for an hour but ending up buying nothing??? We girls do it all the time heh... Not all girls though. Anyway back on track, we continued our journey to Bukit Bintang by taking a Monorail from KL central, a spot that really meant its meaning 'central' as it was so packed with people. There was a series of unfortunate events...We actually were lost. We could not see any building named Lau Yat. Four young teenage girls were all by themselves, LOST!!! We tried asking a couple of strangers but somehow we ended up questioning those who were just like us, they were lost too..! Sigh.. After about an hour plus we finally found our way there. Phew...Soon after that we entered Lau Yat to settle Ina's business with her cell phone. Then, the series of unfortunate events was a bout to continue. We bought our return tickets to KL Central in order to get back to Kelana Jaya. We were in a hurry because we had loads of homework waiting for us back at the hostel and we were way back in terms of time. It was not going as planned. So we rushed not realizing that we had actually entered the wrong platform.. The most surprising thing was we did not realize it even after about half an hour. We even rushed into the train as it was quite crowded and more than that we were proud of ourselves for having entered into the train ahead of the others. What on earth was going on on our heads??? Durh... We only realized it when the train stopped at the next station... Al least now we did.. We had to find our way back to the previous station and get to KL Central. Again we were attacked by a bad luck charm, when we ended up buying 8 tickets instead of four.. Dont ask me why... Oh alright I'll just explain that too... Ina was queuing up at the ticket counter and I was in the queue at the automatic ticket machine. We did that thinking it was a smart move to get the tickets faster. Actually it was but it's just us, who screwed it up. We both reached our respective counters at the same time and ended up buying 8 tickets instead of 4... What a day??! We had to then sell the tickets to some of those in the queue who wanted to go to the same destination as we did. Thank God they accepted it. phew... Finally we reached our Hostel safe and sound. haha... It was after all an unforgettable day....
