Who Wouldn't Love The Holidays?

Alright, after about three months, it seems like the perfect time to resurrect my blog. So here goes a little tell about of how I spent my first three days in this long awaited and needed august holidays.

Day One

Well, for starters, this day was more of a business trip rather than a holiday weekend. Today, SMK Seafield's interact Board of Directors went to SMKSU for this leadership training thing. So well, I had to get up at about 7 in the morning, and what a hassle that was! As previously planned, four other interacters were to hitch a ride with me to SU, so one by one they showed up at my house, around 7.30 a.m.

First came Razlan, then came John, last came Rayvin, who got complete lost. Oh wait, my bad. Last was Pravin, because he didn't even SHOW UP. So well my dad and I and the rest got into the CR-V and scooted over to Pravin's place. After he lodged himself together with the other three in the back, we headed off to ss18.

When we unloaded at Subang Utama, we bumped into Jun Yi, who was well, first there. then we sorta had to wait an eternity for our President. When Leonie finally arrived, we gave her the cold shoulder and denda her to belanja us makan. But, like all (self-proclaimed) great leaders, their never late. You were just too early. So there goes proof that there's no such thing as a free lunch.

Anyway, all 16 of us trooped upstairs into one of the school's classroom/hallrooms. Yeah, here's about the time Seafieldians would go "booyeah! We have an airconned hall!" So then there the little training program went on. from 8a.m. till 2p.m. YAWN.

It was alright at times though, Rern Sean was being Rern Sean. And I met with other primary school friends, like Dheepan and Sheng Ling. All of them were interacters too.

Later that day, I went to Pyramid with Pravin and Razlan for lunch. Well nothing fun there, just three guys eating lunch in Hartz Chicken Buffet. Well later we bought these jumbo playing cards just for kicks. And when I say jumbo, I mean like it wa HUGE. Well, we went to the park later that day and played with them.

Basically, this day was a holiday spoilt by work. So it was quite void of excitement.

Day Two

Odd enough, do you guys ever remember when you were kids? Like REALLY kids. Before puberty, where you could just meet strangers like other kids at the park and make friends in heartbeat, when you were so full of like you woke up before your parents?

Well, now I'm in my teens. And well, from morning glory, I've become the sort of nocturnal. So anyway, On Saturday err, morning? Well, I woke up at 2. So the morning was gone. Bummer.

So today, the weather was awesome. Blue skies with patches of clouds placed perfectly in the right place to block out direct sunlight. And the wind was marvellous. Downside: It's Subang Jaya, where the freshest air you can get, is probably at the park, which is most likely always placed next to a main road. So what do you get? Crap polluted CO'd air.

Today, Pawan came back home! Well, our home at least. His old home. Because he moved some time ago to Seremban. So well the foursome friends were complete today! So of course we were off to have an adventure. So Pravin, Razlan, I and Pawan went to 3k because Pawan got wind of a book sale by Pay-Less Books there. Razlan was also enthusiastic for similar reasons. Pravin and I on the other hand, wanted to check out the gym. Pravin and Razlan both joined the school's newly born Rugby team. So they needed to get in shape.

Well, the four of us walked to the bus stop in front of Summit and took a metrobus to 3k. And the stupidest thing, and bad luck for Pawan, there was NO book sale to be seen there. A wedding, yes, but no book sales were to be heard of in 3k that day. The concierge lady said he must've been mistaken with 3C, the neighbouring childrens facility. So in utter dismay, Pawan and Razlan didn't manage to get their books. But hey, they still joined us in the gym. And we booked it for 1 hour.

So the workout was well, tiring. What else could it be.

Fast forward an hour - The four of us got hungry, and hey, how convinient it was for a nicely placed A&W restaurant placed right next to the 3k building. Now lets all run 10 miles on the treadmill, do 50 rips on the weights, and do 30 sit ups only to award ourselves with a nice coney dog, double scoop ice cream waffle and a rootbeer float =D

After that, we had to make our journey home. So it was a nice slow walk. No rush. Pawan, Pravin and I reminisced about our old primary school as we passed by it. It looks so pathetic and old now compared to it's glory days when we strode the halls.

One of the greatest nostalgiv landmarks, was the monsoon drain right infront of the school. We well, er, Pawan had this crazy idea of actually going threw one of the sewage pipes.

I was somewhat reluctant. Then he and Pravin both went through it. So then I was like "oh what the hell!"

So the three of us went through the drain pipe! It was DISGUSTING in there. And it smelled like longkang!

Why I love being a kid.

Unfortunately after our little "expedition", Pawan was late. He needed to get back home. Seremban. So we hadnt much time left. So off to home!

Pravin was Pooped. He actually had to take a break going up the stairs.

Then when we got back in USJ2, it was bye bye to Pawan. So after all that, the day I say, was concluded.
