What it's about:
Sam is 11 years old and he suffers from leukaemia. His doctor and family decide to give up on chemotherapy because they discovered that his case of leukaemia can't be cured. After his school teacher (he's home-schooled) tells them to work on their writing skills 1 day, he decides to write a book.
His best friend and only classmate, Felix gives him great ideas and helps him accomplish the things on Sam's 'to-do-list'. However, Felix has cancer and is as unstable as Sam health-wise. Felix is determined to make the most of life while he still has it, and he tells Sam to reach for his dreams and that nothing impossible.
This is the story of a boy who knows all about death and knows that it's coming for him. But that doesn't stop him from living his life and achieving what normal, healthy kids don't have the drive to do.
Felix dies in the middle of the book and that means Sam is left to fend for himself. Sam dies in the end too. It's a sad but unavoidable ending.
What I think:
When I first borrowed the book, I knew it was gonna be sad because it said so on the cover. But it really is touching. Sam does his best to be independant and knowing that his time is coming only pushes him to achieve his goals. I like his family too. The author really makes it seem like a true story that a real little boy suffering from leukaemia wrote. And she's only 22 years old! Sam really makes you take a look at life and wonder what the hell you've accomplished in it. This book is best read when you're alone and un-interrupted.

Camp sucks. People suck. Everything sucks! I'm being emo so just ignore me. Hahahahaha.....
I'm gonna write about what I'm doing now. I'm playing Guess-the-sketch on Facebook. Some girl just called me a cow. I don't know why. Maybe because I keep winning. I called her a goat. She just asked if I'm a boy or a girl. I get this question a lot. I told her I'm a girl and she says I look a lot like a boy. I said that's 'cause I have short hair and boyish features. A guy just said I'm a ladyboy. I just laughed. Haha.
I won again. People are getting pissed. I'm gonna let others win. I'll do something else while waiting. I'm writing this post. Now the guy that called me a ladyboy has finally won. I'm glad. A lot of Malays playing now.
Why is no one online? I'm bored. Hence, this post. I'm blabbering about nothing. Lalalalala..... How pathetic. I'm still going to post this post though.
Now there are cheaters all over. Reminds me of Sick. Spelling all the time. I'm going offline now. To read Brisingr. Chrissy, did you know that it's pronounced BRISS-ing-ger. I didn't know that until my bro mentioned it and I checked the pronounciation. Oh well, bye!

I was watching Camp Rock yesterday and it's really not as good as High School Musical. But I like some of the songs. Gotta Find You by Joe Jonas is my favourite. I like Our Time Is Here and This Is Me too. The bitchy girl, Tess isn't really pretty in the movie but I think she's pretty in the behind-the-scenes part.
Actually, the night before I watched Camp Rock, I had a dream about the Jonas Brothers, particularly Nick Jonas. I don't know why. Then after I watched the movie, I realised that Nick Jonas is hot! At first, (like almost everybody else) I liked Joe because he appears hotter at first sight and I like his singing voice more.
Then, I didn't like Joe anymore when I saw the pictures of Camp Rock. He looked really fake for some reason.
It was at that time that I started liking Nick 'cause he always looks so natural and fun and happy! And he's the only one of them that didn't straighten his hair, I like his curls better. But I didn't think he was hot.... Just cute.
But after watching the movie and hearing his real voice, I sorta developed a tiny crush on him. Again, don't know why. He has the best talking voice among all 3 brothers(in my opinion). I just don't like Kevin's voice and the way he acts so stupid in the movie. I know he's getting paid to act dumb but I just don't like it.
I found a lot of Nick fans' websites. Here are some pics I found too. You can tell those girls got it bad....

ps Chrissy was nice enough to google rabies and she said her cats don't have any symptoms so hopefully I'm safe. My maid said her neighbour once died after getting bitten by a cat though. I think it was a wild cat.

Anyway, i finished the exam in half an hour after checking a few times. I thought it was mostly common sense so I didn't study much. Only about 2 pages. That did come out!
So after I finished doing the paper, I was bored and thought about what Sick told me. She suggested that we learn how to write with our left hand in the holidays. (I know it sounds like something Megan would say) So I started writing with my left hand. In pencil of course! If not the teacher(Ms Hehehehe) would think a 4-year-old did my paper.
Then I was still bored. So I switched back to my right hand and wrote down everything I was thinking. What appeared on my paper was a page load of crap. I wrote 1 page full of words without hesitating! How cool is that?!
Next, I thought of some lyrics. Then I wrote them down and created a (sort of)song! The lyrics are below but I can't sing it for you. Maybe you'll get a tune.

That was a video Chris, Sick, Megan and I made for Ty. Hope you like it, Ty! I think Megan is so pretty as a you! I sound just like you when i 'eat' the pizza and say 'Hey, That tastes good!' We put a lot of effort into it. But that's ok. That's what friends do. They're there for each other no matter what. Well... The real ones do anyway...
That's what this post is all about. Friends! I know how lucky I am that I have found friends who click with me. We have disagreements of course. We just manage to get past them. That's how we get along so well actually. We balance each other out so well with our strengths and weaknesses, the bad things don't matter that much whereas the good times seem so distinguished!
Many people I know still haven't found their special friend. The friends they have are good friends-but not best friends. A best friend is the person you turn to when you need something. Whether it's a shoulder to cry on, a ride to school, a listening ear,someone to annoy, constructive criticism.......
So I guess I just wanna say how much I treasure my friends! Hey, guys! You know who you are! Even though I annoy your knickers off, and talk your ear off, and stink your noses off, you're still my best buds and as we said today, I hope we'll still be friends when we're old, dead and cremated! (I dunno about you but I wanna be cremated) So that's it for now, bye, friends! Wait for your hugs next year!

Let me tell you 1st. I do not read crime books because I don't like them so if you're looking for a Jeffery Deaver recommendation, forget it. You're not going to find it here. Most of the books I read revolve around romance and fantasy so I'm telling you this upfront. I like books about paranormal beings or life in the future or anything that hasn't been invented yet so if you share the same taste as me (like Chrissy, Sick or Ty), you'll find that you'll love the books I recommend.
I'll only start my 1st Must-Read in November after the exams are over and this is just to let you know. I'm not really sure which book I'm gonna review 1st because I'm gonna write about a book I've read before so I'll have to read it again to refreh my memory. The 1st post I was planning on writing has 15 books in the series so I won't be able to finish reading that fast so maybe I'll stick with something recent. Again, I'm not sure. This is just a heads-up. But look out for this new column or whatever its called. And if you have very nice books to recommend, leave a comment in my chatbox. That's it for now, people. Bye! Happy Halloween and Happy Exams!

Next, I watched High School Musical. It was the first one and it was kinda lame but I love the part where Sharpay and Ryan sing What I've Been Looking For. They were all so funny! I even sang along to Breaking Free. But I prefer Bop to The Top.
However, I have evidence that testifies to the fact that I'm a genius! I googled my blog's name and this is what I found. A blog which said:
PS: Go to this link : http://myrasbras.blogspot.com/2008/08/burnin-up.html I have no idea who this person is, but I don't really care. All I know that she's a genius! XD lol. The Jonas Brothers's Burning Up parody. Yes, it involves Twilight.
See? I'm a genius! Finally someone else sees it too!

There isn't much of a story. It's just about Bella having to choose between Edward and Jacob and it's kinda like comparing them. Then in the end she makes her decision.
Tell me what you think by leaving a comment. I welcome constructive criticism. Thanks!

Cool right? And this is why I love Sick. After we got home from Gurney, we were bored and decided to make some videos. We love them but I'm gonna wait a while before posting them.. A little hint of what's in them? We used our presents....
Wednesday, October 1, 2008
Last night, we went out for dinner with my grandmother and her 2 sisters and their families. One of her sisters came out from Ipoh, hence, the reunion dinner.
Anyway, after dinner at G Hotel, we were walking to the Gurney Plaza carpark and had to get on the lift as we were with old people. The lift area was very crowded with young people. When the lift came, the young people got on 1st but that's understandable 'cause they were there 1st.
But when the next lift came, these young girls who came later than us immediately pushed their way onto the lift, giggling and laughing all the way. They didn't even care that there were 3 old ladies waiting for the lift too! And 2 of these old ladies were using tongkats! Are they blind or something?! Don't they teach you in Moral that you always let old people go 1st?! Teens nowadays!
My parents were of course blaming our generation when it isn't our fault! Those i-diots made all of us look bad! I told my dad all my friends would've waited for the old ladies to get on before going in but of course he didn't listen. My poor grandma and her sisters... Getting pushed to the side... Stupid those girls......
Ok, I'm done ranting. That's it. Just don't become one of those people..
