Assalamualaikum. Oh Gosh! NUS sent a reminder e-mail to me regarding the posting of documents and stuff and I have to do so by 1st April 2007 which is tomorrow. How can I possibly do that! They send me the mail on Wednesday but because of the dreary NS, I can only check my e-mail during my weekends. I guess I have to just apply without any discretionary admission as I did not manage to send them the documents. Now I can only pray that I will get the golden ticket to the university in August-September.
Alhamdulillah, this coming week will be a short one. Friday is a holiday and I can book out on Thursday. I think I am adapting to NS life. I am changing, both physically and emotionally. I can handle critisism, scolding, swearing and the way they treat us like dogs well. I am getting immuned to this, I guess. However, I don't like this one change that I find happening with me. I am starting to swear bad words more, but not the really bad ones. 20 push-ups are nothing compare to the 200 push-ups we have to do almost everyday. The least we do in a day is 100. Now, my problem is running. I do not know if I can clock 12.20 minutes for my 2.4 k.m run. I hope I can pass. Pray for me people! Thank you!
Assalamualaikum. Today is 12 RabiulAwal 1428 Hijrah. It is the day of Keputeraan Nabi Muhammad s.a.w.

Assalamualaikum. Met Mr. Jimmy Teo yesterday and I want o congratulate him. Gosh! I am so touched when finally, after some time, there is at least a superior of mine talk to me nicely and show his care for me. Gosh! I should have treasure him more and buck up on my Physics. I am sorry Mr. Teo. That is the kind of superior that I should and must respect, not those in the camps. Nothing about them that I admire. Bad attitude! Stupid some more! Hahahahaha... Stupid bas***ds!
Haizzz. Why must it be Sunday already? Gosh! It is book in day. Luckily next two weeks, there is a holiday and it is Good Friday. Finally, I think that there is something good about this Friday. So, I'll be booking out on Thursday. On the Saturday will be watching Dukun with Bashirah and Ismail! And the best part to it is that it will be my last week before I go for my vocation. Hopefully, I will be chosen to go under Medic. Clerk? Not too bad but I have to forget about ERS or Firefighter. I will be training for it like hell for 6 months in the Civil Defence Academy and then will only using the knowledge learnt for another remaining 1 year and 5 months. I think it will only be worth it if I sign on. Uniform Group is not my cup of tea!

Assalamualaikum. Went to one of my distant-relative's wedding. Saw a few of my cousins there and the first question that they asked me was, "Hey, Izwan! How's your results?" Then everyone else keep asking me the same question and how I wish I dare to say, "Can I announce it over the microphone please?" As you know, at Malay weddings, the compulsory things to have other than Nasi Briyani or Nasi Minyak and kompang, it is the deejay and karaoke. Hahaha, so might as well I make use of the microphone there. Hahaha. They are happy for me but I know that some are jealous, and think that I am proud or something. They just give me that kind of an ignorant look. Whatever, you cannot blame me if you are stupid you see, and definitely I did not steal any of your brain cells, I am sure!
Actually I was lazy to go these weddings and stuffs but I force myself to follow my family because I know I will miss it once I become a Civil Defence Cadet. I will definitely miss the food but too bad, I already ate at home so when I went there, I just ate a few of the deserts and pencuci mulut like kuih lapis, kuih seri muka, curry puffs and oh ya, this chocolate cake. It is very delicious. It has 3 layers. The 2nd layer was just a layer of pure chocolate... oooh I cannot miss this one. It is becoming popular nowadays especially during Hari Raya. OOOmph...
When my relatives know that I will be enlisted in 2 days time, they were like consoling me and telling me that oh NS is becoming more civilised now and they would not torture you anyhow and blablabla... And one of my cousin advise me not to mix with those naughty boys and abide the rules and upon hearing that, her daughter who is of the same age as me said," Don't worrylah Ma, Izwan is not that kind...He will be good" What the heck, you do not know how crazy can I be. Hahahah, well thank you my dear relatives for the encouragement, advice and words of console. Thank you. I only ask for prayers from you guys so that I will return home in one piece and things will go smoothly these 2 years.
You are the air that I breathe
You're the ground beneath my feet
When did I stop believing
Cause I feel myself surrender
Each time I see your face
I am staggered by your beauty
Your unassuming grace
And I feel my heart
Falling into place
I can't hide
Now hear my confession
I can't hide
Now hear my confession
Hear my confessionConfession, Josh Groban

Assalamualaikum. Went out with Bashirah and Ismail today. Still not feeling well but since I have to collect something at Orchard, I decided to just go out with them. Ismail said it was a
shopping outing. Actually we wanted to do this long time ago but the previous time we tried to do so, we ended up buying nothing and just watched CicakMan instead. So, this time we decided to do real shopping. Hahahaha... We did not buy a lot of things but at least there are something bought. Ismail and I bought 2 tops from TOPMAN and Bashirah bought one from Dorothy Perkins(wah branded sey Bashirah
). Met at 3.00 pm after the Friday prayers and we headed to Far East Plaza first. Went around and around but found nothing attractive at first. Later we went to Isetan Scotts and we bought the clothes and then ate dinner there. Talked a lot about DUKUN the Movie. Sad that DUKUN is not in Singapore's cinemas yet.
After dinner, we went back to Far East Plaza and this time round, something caught our eye. Bashirah bought a headband and I bought 2 pairs of Flip Flops. Eh Bash, did you buy the butterfly belt? I forget about this one.
After that we went o Cineleisure to check on the release date of DUKUN the Movie but to no avail. It was time to head home and we left town and took pictures at of all places, in the MRT.
I will miss these two of my friends so much. Of course the rest too.

Assalamualaikum. Now, I roughly have something in mind on what to do after NS. Happy that I finally figure out what to do in future. I hope it will become a reality. Mr. Izwan...

Assalamualaikum. Gosh it is less than a week now. In 5 days, I will be enlisted. I am going to miss a lot of things. My computer, blogging, listening to my favourite songs, meeting my friends(I rarely do this), going to my favourite places and the list goes on...
In preparation, I went shopping just now and got a new pair of spectacles. Actually, I have no idea what to bring on that day. I need some guidance but where can I find someone close to me who is
from Singapore Civil Defence Force. Majority of my friends are in the army...stranded away in Pulau Tekong. Haizzz. Never mind. I will figure it out soon.
The last few days were pretty happening for me. I left Singapore on Saturday. Stayed at my grandma's house in Malacca. A lot of things happened. I went through a jungle and saw so may wild plants ever in my life and I love the fresh air. A lot of things learnt. I feel so far ahaed from my cousins. I've left them far behind in terms of academic, modernisation and etc. They live a simple life. Not poor but a comfortable life. Serenity. Peaceful. And the best thing is that, they
are happy with their life. Satisfied with the things they have... but me? I feel so... Arghh. I need to learn to be satisfied but I must not stop trying. Trying to get to the peak. Be it if I am going to be the only one who goes to the university. Be it. I should be proud to lead them. Sometimes I feel that I am selfish when I look at them. Over here, I am entering university and there, my cousins are struggling with their studies but I think again... I manage to come thus far with hard work(not sleepless night), stress... I am glad that somehow I manage to help them with their studies the other day at Malacca. How I wish I can bring all of them over here in Singapore.
I am close to my young cousins in Malaysia. It is pity that they are not here in me. I feel lonely sometimes. Felt pretty jealous when I see my friends having a great time with their cousins. The cousins here that I have in Singapore are so much older than me. Some of them already have grandchildren. I feel odd when I am with them. My sister mix well with them but not me. When Hari Raya comes, instead of talking to my relatives, I go to the kitchen to prepare drinks and stuffs or chat with my Sis's maid. Hahaha... Some people do have a problem seeing me talking with the maids...I don't care. They are still human people who deserves respect. Learning about their pay and etc, I pity them. The workload is so much and yet paid so little. Okay,
I am digressing. Gosh! Heard that 2 of my cousins are getting married this year. I hope I will be able to leave the country to attend their wedding. Weddings there are different from the way it is done over here. There really follow the traditions and the food, walah! The food are prepared by the villagers themselves and nothing about caterers and etc. The meat are from their own poultry(except chicken because there won't be enough). They have fireworks, joget lambak
, acara berinai
and etc. Gosh! I do no want to miss all these.

Assalamualaikum. Now, after getting the results, I do not know if I should be happy or otherwise. When I first set my eyes on the result slip, I was happy and actually running to find Ms. Ng. I really owe her that much. I must say that this is the BEST result I've ever obtained in Junior College. For Maths, it is just unbeliveabel. I got an E for Prelim and passing for Maths was a miracle for me. Even Ms. Ng thought I got B or C for Maths but I didn't. By the way people, I did not get A for Malay. Quite disappointed upon learning that only 1 got an A among the 10. It is pretty sad. The MT 'A' students did quite badly. I do not know which course should I apply for. I still remember the time when I pass my PSLE and were to choose 6 schools out ouf 164 secondary schools in Singapore. From 164 choices, I go down to 17 choices of Junior College and now 3 choices of local Universities.
For my friends who think that they did badly, I do sympathise with you people but life has to move on right? If 'A' level is not your kind of thing, there are so many other things that you have a niche in. This is not the end of the world. I know it is hard for you guys but people, it is ordinary to be successful all the way but it is extraordinary if one falls and then get up and become successful. If you my dear friend, need to talk to me, please call me be it at 3 a.m okay? I will try my best to be by your side.
People, I'll be back on Tuesday. I need a break from Singapore!

Assalamualaikum. Exactly 2 hours and 30 minutes more to the BOOM! Gosh! Good Luck People!
Thursday, March 1, 2007
Assalamualaikum. Yesterday, I had a great time. Cassandra, Melvin, Kenneth and I went to Party World to sing our lungs out and to bid goodbye to our pre-results stress(didn't know that it will come back). We sang for like approximately 6 hours. Not bad. The best part was after the karaoke. Kenneth, Cassandra and I went window shopping. We went PARAGON and to boutiques like PRADA, Hugo Boss, Armani Xchange, United Colours of Benetton and etc. Love the aura in those shops. Later we went to Ngee Ann City to visit shops like Chanel, Cristian Dior, Burberry, Louis Vuitton and Hermes. Wah, it is so great. To me, these are all motivation for me to soar greater heights and believe that I can grab these stuffs one day. Now I know how lucky I am being born not rich. You know like those rich kids, they already can afford these stuffs at such a young age and therefore, little motivation (I think) is there for them to work hard and succeed one day because they have tasted the extravagant life. I want to work it out myself.
Then headed home and on the way home, had a long chat with Kenneth. We talked about a lot of stuffs. Then finally reached home at 9.30p.m. Had my first meal of the day. Gosh, I do not know how can I grow fat if I continue to be like this. Even Datuk Siti Nurhaliza is heavier than I do and the bad part is that I am taller than her. Gosh!I must EAT, EAT, EAT!
Talking about weight problem, the other day I watched The Tyra Show and Tyra Banks was talking about the problems that kids nowadays facing. Surprisingly, one of them was weight problem. Ahah, not overweight but underweight. Some of them who are underweight still think that they are fat and some of them are as young as 5 years old. When Tyra Banks asked one of the girls how she feels when she sees a fat woman and gosh! her answer was "Ewwww!" I seriously do not know what the world is up to. Will this be a world only for the slim people? Be it you are fat or slim, tall or short, handsome/pretty or ugly, you are still one of the creation of God. To me, I have no problem with these people unless if they have body odour of bad breath. Gosh! I can't really take this.
