36 hours of sleeplessness + driving = you have no idea....

Date : 29th June 2009
Time : 1.31AM
Listening to : Nothing
Where : Living Hall - Tanyus' Place

Haiiiiih~ What a weekend. We received news from Urbanscapes committee that they're releasing a booth for us to do fundraising. It was 11.30PM, Friday when we received the news and Urbanscapes was on Saturday. That means it was the next day la. t was such a rushed decision. The presidents and PR head discussed the issue online. TAKE IT or NOT? We decided we should since we were going to Urbanscapes anyway. Just that the plan changed to working there instead of you know... have a more relaxed trip. 

So what happened was, I packed up, borrowed Zaf's car, picked Julianto, Wahyu and Sathom at around 1.00AM and sped off to Ampang with Fadzil leading the way. We reached Dee's place at around 2.30AM. Went off for supper at McD till 3.00AM. Then we went bac to Dee's place, worked around the clock till 8.00AM. Freshened up and went off to KLPAC at9.00AM.

I drove one car and Fadzil drove another. Julianto and Sathom followed my car. And we got lost cos Fadzil's car was blocked by a truck and I lost track of his car. Sigh..again. Anyway, we managed to find our way after 45 minutes I think.

The event started from 10AM to 12AM. The 3 of us decided that we will stay until 5.00PM max. We didn't sleep the whole night and we felt that it was unwise to stay on till night. But... haih...we ended up staying till 8.30PM. We promoted our batch and graduation and everything. Urbanscapes is so fun la but we didn't have the chance to see things cos we were kinda stuck in our booth. We managed to catch a glimpse of some performances though.

Anyway, we packed up and left at 8.30PM. By then, I officially did not sleep for 35 hours or more already. Same goes for Julianto and Sathom. I thnk they stayed up longer than me. And so I had to drive home the same ppl back. And I got lost. AGAIN. I am certified not a KL person. I was so tired and my brain wasn't functioning due to the lack of sleep.

I must stress that I am usually not a reckless driver. But in KL, I am. I seriously am cos there are just too many things going on. And that night, coupled with the lack of sleep, I was seriously putting ppl's lives in danger. I almost bang ppl along the way. I couldn't concentrate and everytime I stopped at the red light, i will doze off and Sathom had to keep me awake. Yeah... I know...what the heck right? Sigh. So as we finally went the right way, Sathom just kept talking to me. I think he attempted to keep me awake. As we made a Uturn back to Julianto's house, I had a minor accident with the divider. Jolted everyone. X...X! Sigh. I safely dropped Julianto and Wahyu home after that.

Lepas tuuu, I dropped Sathom back at his place. Near Summit. Then when I drove back home, I drifted off a little and almost crashed the bridge divider. Thank God I realized it just in time. Oh my goodnesss... So scary la ok. Then when almost reaching home, I was so sure there weren't any cars la. So when I drove out to the junction, a motorcyclist crashed into me. I was so shocked. I kept apologizing, he kept apologizing. And since no one got hurt, we just went away. Thank God everyone was alright. 

By the time I reached home, I wanted to just drop dead on the bed and sleep. But I had to shower cos I felt so sticky and dirty la. I lost balance while walking 2 times and that kinda scared my bro. So after I showered, I went back to his room. He straight away off the light and made me go to bed. =.=! Which I did after...hehe...I counted the money. LOL.

Okla...Anyway, everything was good. And I'm sorry if Ive made anyone worried. But it's not like I had a choice la ok. And I am not a workaholic. Things just happen to be that way. Anyway, I gtg. I have another gallery thing tomorrow. Nite.

Befrienders and Jean Nie

Date : 15th June 2009
Time : 10.26AM
Listening to : Still - Hillsong
Where : Bro's Room - MC

And so yesterday I took a bus back to Sunway at 4.30PM. The bus was supposed t leave at 4PM. Sheesh. Then train was delayed so I kinda reached home at around 8.00PM. Then had dinner with zheng, bro, zaf and Kelvin. So tiring. Had a meting with Sathom and Julianto until around 12.45AM I think. Then I went to bed. Woke up at 5.30AM. Took a bath and started working on befriender's quick visual. Not quick at all. =.=! I don't think I can really make "quick visual" because this took me 4 hours la dey! Quick visual supposed to be like prob one hour one. And I took 4 hours for one freakin page. No wonder I am so behind time for FPS. Grrrrrr~!

I think it's to textly. =.=! I hope I don't make a stressful person more stressed up when they visit this site. Oh my...

And prob he's right. I am really not sleeping right. Attempts to wake up every 2 hours definitely make me more tired than I already am. Oh, and I finally got in touch with Jean Nie. So MGSS fellows... September gathering was suggested by JN. Let me know kay if u guys are interested to meet up.

It's funny how she took Multimedia in MMU and now an Art Director in Singapore. What are the chances that we took the same line of course huh? *Grin*

Date : 13th June 2009
Time : 1.01PM
Listening to : D'Masive - Cinta ini membunuhku
Where : Bro's room - Malacca

Yesterday, the board members had a meeting and our main agenda was the art directions. Got pretty frustrated at one point because most of the time we get ppl who just shoot down some suggestions but constructive feedback was relatively low. It's not that I enjoy walking upfront and release my frustration by erasing the earlier discussion and brushing kel off in the process (sorry kel). But we were kinda going nowhere if we don't give constructive feedback. Even ridiculous suggestions are fine but not just plain keeping quiet and we don't know what was going on in your head. And then when everything is over, then some of us might get it from another source that some people are unhappy and all. Its not easy and almost impossible to please everyone la. I kinda eccepted this fact already. But it's not like we're not trying you know.At the very least, I hope that our own board members will let us know if they really think something is not working right. Any constructive feedback will help. Sigh...

And after the meeting, had lunch with some of them and then drove zheng to the post ofice to get her stuf. Then hung out at the gallery with wahyu and zheng before mom and dad came and pick me up. On the way back malacca, it was really a good feeling. The orange biscuit was setting and it felt great to be home.

Right now, I am jugling betwen fps and grad camp. A little while from now, i will be off to youth meeting. Sigh... Time is so little.

Lot10 survey day

Date : 12th June 2009
Time : 12.29AM
Listening to : My own typing
Where : Bro's Room - MC

What a day... T_T I had replacement class from 10-1PM today. Supposed to leave for Lot10 at 1.30pm with some committee members to check the area out. Mana tau I actually have another replacement class at 2PM. =.=! So delayed till around 3PM then Chris fetched us to Lot10. Macam tour guide pulak tu. SO yeah... We surveyed the area for our next bazaar.

And since it was raining and we can't go anywhere else, we sat down in DOME cafe and brainstormed for some strategies to attract more customers and also planned out what can be done with te oversized tees. I personally don't mind the s size right now. It feels pretty comfortable. But girls tend to like baby tees instead.

Anyway, went back home with public transport. Monorail was crazily packed. Francisca, Sathom, Julianto, Deny and I almost got flattened. =.=! Luckily ventilation was good. After we stopped at Sentral, I went my separate way and took KTM home instead. The rest took bus.

When I reached home, I checked my mail, the forum and batch68 blog. Then I wanted to take a nap. But Kel and Danny came over to drag me outta bed for dinner. But I die die also dowan. I needed to sleep. I wanted to take a short nap so I can wake up for the art direction online meeting. But I kinda "died" on my bed. I hutang tidor like sial liddat. Although the night before I slept a lot, but still, I couldn't cover back the hutang. Hahahahaa... I missed the meeting. Sathom didn't call me. T_T Perhaps cos he knew I kantoi d.

So I ended up not having any lunch or dinner. I woke up at 11.30PM. Took a bath and took my dinner. Kel they all bought for me. So very nice of them la. I said I wanted ayam penyet and terus ada ayam penyet. Thanks yea zaf, zheng, kel and danny! :)

All in all, the progress for Grad campaign isn't that bad. I have faith that God will make our path straight. Keep us in prayers. Thanks!

And I am coming back tomorrow. I don't think I have the time to hang out though.

A long weekend at Bijou Bazaar

Date : 7th June 2009
Time : 10.19PM
Listening to : We will dance - Steven Curtis Chapman
Where : Bro's Room - MC

It was a terribly TIRING, HECTIC, BUSY, ENERGY-DRAINING weekend. My batch had our first fundraising activity in Bijou Bazaar this weekend. On Thursday, I worked with some of the students on the paper bags for our bazaar. We are going green so we decide not to use plastic bags. :) I started from 2pm to around 5.30PM. After that, I rushed off to meet my internship client, Befrienders. We left pretty early to find the place. Met the client officially at 7PM. Lasted till about 8 to 8.30. then went back sunway, packed up, dinner and then off to Dee's place. Supposed to start on the notebook production there. But due to miscommunication, some stuff got mixed up. So I had to travel from Ampang all the way to Sunway to retrieve the stuff. =.=! At 12.00AM. Thank God for Fadzil. Then Sel and I worked ont he notebook covers. I slept pretty early that day. At 4.00AM.

Woke up at 8.30AM. Went to school at 9.00AM to conduct the board meeting for Grad campaign. After that start to work on the notebook further. Some of the members continued to work on paperbags. Handed the work over to Sathom at 3.00PM and went to class. Then one hr later, we were dismissed. Met Uncle Kenny and we had a crazy talk. Hahaha. Then went to meet up with the rest of the members in the printing shop and continued to rush on the stuff for the next day. Reached home at about9.00PM. Actually I went back Sel's place. Took a nap of one hr or so. Then Fadzil came and we did some silkscreen board for the tees. I slept for 2 more hours. Then lasted the whole night till 6.45AM. Then set out with Nesia to pick Sathom and met Jon at school.

Went to Bijou Bazaar at Bangsar.

Got lost there. Prayed darn hard and somehow we managed to find our way back. And then set up the bazaar stuff. On saturday, I was at the bazaar from 8.30AM to 7.30PM. So very tiring and I knelt down most of the times. So know got blue blacks and all already. The bazaar was fun although sales were really slow. I really had fun with everyone. Laughed and wanna die also cos so tired.

So panas la that morning. This is Prakash. Our Caricature guy.
We took only one booth lor. But we have 3 car loads as full as this. Seems like we're having 5 booths. =.=!
Having some crazy moments while waiting for the Bungalow to open. Julianto, the vice President scolding us. Ehehehe...
Drama Queen. -.-!
Setting up the place
Love the settings and everything. That's Nesia and Sam at work.
Silkscreen! Ehehehee. It was fun but crash course of 15 minutes at 6AM in the morning did not make me a good silk-screener. =.=!

Not by me. =.=! By Fadzil. Design was by Sathom and Julianto. Psst.. If you guys want it, order from us kay?? Support us for Our Graduation Campaign!

Handmade clay accessories. There were a lot of nice ones. Will post them up asap! If you like it, order from us too!
I have no way to describe how delicious this is. I went around giving ppl samples but I ended up eating a whole bunch of them.

Scenario that happened:
Me : Hi! Wanna try our brownies? It's free!
People : Okay.
Me : Do you like it? Support us kay?
*Turned around, stole one piece. *
Imagine me doing that for 20 times laaaaa!
*Reached my own stall. Members look at me.
Michelle : Cheeeeeen! Why do you look like you were eating them??
*Wipe mouth*
Me : Where got???
Nesia : Got! What kind of president this?
*Everyone laughed*
Chen : Fine! Fine! I shall not stand up to this temptation. You guys go round lah!

Our very own chef with a degree in culinary art, Yoshiki. His brownies are to die for.
The pool area.
Oh, another kena marah picture.

PHOTOS were taken by our Photographer, Nian Xing.

BUT... post mortem time with some outsider made feel so upset and demoralized. I was already very stressed up by internal problems in my own board. Now I have to faced some people who think that we are small kiddos. That is what I felt la. But I was born to be really courteous. I don't speak my mind just like that. I just listened. I was so freakin stressed already la. Then suddenly dad called. I went off to pick up the calls. I heard his voice only, I started breaking down and cried. I guess I just felt so vulnerable when I heard my dad's voice la. He asked what's wrong and all. I dunnoe what to say la. I think I was tired and demoralized. And I haven't been sleeping enough for almost 3 days straight. Plus, I didn't eat the whole day. AND they have to demoralize my team and drag the meeting even though we had a long day already. I just felt very frustrated. After that call, I went back up and then mom called. Alamak... Cried again...she lectured me and asked me to drop the president post. But to bail out just like that is just not me la. Then the 3rd time, she called again. She said she wants me to come up with a schedule for my sleeping and eating time. =.=!

Anyway... sigh... I had fun UNTIL the demoralizing post mortem. Came back home started to emo and prayed so hard. Slept at around 12AM. Woke up at 7.15AM and went off to the 2nd day of bazaar. Sathom, Zheng, Zaf, Abdullah and I were supposed to stay half a day but Sathom ended staying until 4.30PM. Zaf and I stayed the full day. We reached home at 9PM just now. It was fun today cos we tried to attract the crowds from the roads. Ehehehee... When the pics are out, I'll post them up.

VERY TIRING but FUN. (minus the very emo night I had on Sat)

I skipped church this week. I am really sorry. Really really sorry. No excuse at all I know. Sigh.

Another long day tomorrow. T_T
