This is the long blog post, you’ve all be waiting for. Or dreading. It’s separated out into segments! Now, how cool is that? :P
Once upon a time, after a terrifying, horrifying Block 1 examination, in which there were not much tears, surprisingly. Just black rings around eyes, and a tendency towards homicide. The papers varied in difficulty and it was definitely not all that fun to do. I can’t wait for my results to see how well I did, or how badly I screwed up.
But after the exams, due to us having an Annual Awards Night, we had a sort-of three days break! Friday, Saturday and Sunday! :) It was fantastic.
I spent Friday lazing around, catching up on sleep, and whatnot. Then there was the first time practicing for the Sumazau Magunatip dance! :D Haha, I felt and looked like an elephant trying to tap-dance I’m sure!
Then night came, and yeah, it was kinda like a fashion show in which I oohed and aahed over all the pretty girls on stage, and occasionally, the good-looking guy. Haha. But daaaaayem. Were the girls ever so lovely.
The highlight of the night has got to be a skit like thing with many dances performed by the lecturers. It was extremely entertaining, and highly creative, the way they incorporated the dances along with the stories. I’d put the video up, but its way too long! Pictures shall have to do. By the way, all pictures posted here are taken from Rudy Zain! :D
Some teachers made the students hearts swoon. And some were just so darn adorable! :D Definitely awesome. They were so sporting about it, and yeah, the joget dance was one of my favourites.
Aren’t they just sooo awesome!
The night ended with me dozing off hahaha. :) Oh well. Here’s a pretty picture of myself teehee!
The Mangalore Trip
The next day, I headed off to Mangalore. Initially we wanted to catch the Harry Potter movie but thankfully there were no more tickets, and we watched Narnia instead! I have only this to say, “Ugh. Okay ny.”
Mangalore is nothing like I’ve imagined. Esther and the rest have gone to Mangalore, and I’ve always imagined it… Busier. More town-like.. More… More. Its actually just like another Udupi, another small busy place. Just with two big malls, and a cinema.
The shopping malls were like heaven. Obviously none of the usual stores you see in Malaysia were there. But the feel of it! Oh, nice. I’ve been longing to just wander about in an air-conditioned area and just window shop, ya know? And yes, this was good mind therapy.
Until you go out the malls, and you say, “Oh yeah, I’m still in India.”
Bought shoes on my own for the first time, that were not sports shoes. Haha. I’m still learning to shop for pretty things on my own. :P
Jessica Wang’s Day
The next day was Jessica Wang’s birthday! Girl who was made in Taiwan! We spent her birthday at Domino’s for lunch! And she got a free chocolate cupcake for free! It’s a dear pity she doesn’t eat chocolate, this girl. We then went to the beach and had a jolly good time.
This time we went earlier and managed to watch the sunset. We even played in the water! We didn’t go too far in because of the current. But it was a lovely time. The sky was so big, blue and beautiful and the sea echoed that. I even went jetskiing for a few minutes for only 150rs!
I got completely wet and maaaaan, saw the whole beach from a distance, and it was beaaaautiful! Completely and utterly beautiful with a touch of magic!
I LOVE THE BEACH!
That ends my short break. Then, the horror starts again on Monday! Week 1 of Block 2 has been pretty okay. Its just I feel stressed for not touching the books more in preparation of whats to come because I’ve been going for dance practice.
Then I fell sick on Friday and it was terrible. Because we finally had our practice on the main stage, and it was a freezing night! Saturday was already our event in which we had to perform already actually.
Saturday night was the Cultural/Food Fest event themed Legenda, and Malaysians students from as far as Bangalore would come to enjoy some well-missed, well-loved delicacies such as sate, Ramly burger, etc.
Gosh, Saturday morning and afternoon was just spent practicing, and I actually missed the rehearsal, because I felt terrible and just slept at home. Made me panicked about the night, because I wasn’t sure if I would remember, and hey! It’s the first time I’m dancing for a crowd okay! Haha.
We wore the traditional costume, and it was nice. :) I like watching respective classmates shaking their hips for their own dance, haha. So funny!
I had to come up the stage twice. First time for a small role, holding someone’s hand for the Muhibah dance. Then the real one. Haha.
It was truly an experience. I mean, come on! My first time dancing! I was so scared I would look weird, or even miss a step. Surprisingly I didn’t! Yeay! Others did, and when they forgot I was like, “Crap, I’m going to forget soon!”
There was a blunder on my part after, haha. But it was really minor. Thank goodness. Oh, and I didn’t realize at certain points of the dance, I would be smack middle performing. LOL.
But yeah, I really enjoyed dancing it. I hope I won’t forget this Sabahan dance. It was really nice. And yeah, it’s a lemah lembut dance, a real gentle dance, and I’m anything but gentle! Still, I could do it. So that’s a plus for me wheeee!
And I even got free food and drinks that night. Along with a rose! Schweeet. :)
Because of all the work going into Legenda, they gave us Saturday and Monday off! Which is awesome. But seeing as how I’m still sick, and not studying. I don’t know how I should feel. I should be catching up on work and all. But I can’t. Nothing goes in because I’m feeling terrible.
This is the part when I start blogging to de-stress when I’m distressed.
Sunday Beach Time
Oh, yeah. I spent Sunday going to the beach with one Tan Jo Lynn. I wanted to cheer her up, and since she wanted to go to the beach.. It seemed perfect. We even went up the lighthouse! I screamed, because I was so freaking scared. I don’t think I’m ever going back up there.
But yeah. The beach is perfect, as always. I went jet-skiing again, this time at the back. So I didn’t get too wet, and I laughed hysterically everytime I flew off the seat and whacked the driver’s butt.
Still. Beautiful beautiful place. I’m in love with it. Third time and still not bored. Awesomeness.
And now I’m going off. Toodles. :)
This is me saying, have a flying day ahead! :D
