IB results and all that matters

Darn, I wish I could’ve posted this earlier. That server disruption is really a bummer. I would spare you all the drama and suspense of the night when the IB results for the November 2008 session are made available (go to Jon Mah’s for that). Instead, I would just go in straight away. I got […]

No place for mediocrity

As of today, there are only 44 days (42 or 43 for some of us) left until the final IB exam in November. That number alone is small enough, and next week we will be having a one-week Raya holiday. Minus 9 days from the number and it is only 35 days. Only slightly more […]

The leader I want to see

The current political situation in Malaysia nowadays has surely invited a lot of commentaries from my fellow friends in the Sri KDU IB Community. It has also exhort some individuals into appearing as ‘inspired’ of becoming the nation’s next leader in the future, and claim that they will supposedly ‘repair’ the country and vow to […]

Let's spill some blood

When I grew up to be 18 years old last year, I had that joyful feeling (as everybody would) of having finally surpassed the legal age where you can do anything any other adult can do (except voting). And aspiring to be a good person (notice the word aspire), I started thinking, “How can I change the world?” Okay, a little bit over the roof, I admit. Then I realise there’s something significant I can do that wouldn’t take much effort. I would give my blood away.

The art and skill of self discovery

No, this is not the search-your-own-soul kind of self discovery. This is about the more literal meaning of self discovery, which is discovering things on your own (that really does translate to self discovery, right?). I’d say that this is one of the most important skills that can bring you far in life. It makes […]

Nightmare

Lately, dreams have been frequenting my night sleep. Last night was something different. There was this advertisement somewhere about a game. If you want to play it, the organiser will send 5 people to your house to kill you. If you manage to kill them first, you’ll be awarded $25,000. I told them I want […]

Come walk with me

I’ve started walking to school (about 1.5km away) every morning since the first day of this semester. A lot of people have asked me why. Here’s a bunch of reasons why. Primarily, I walked to school everyday to train and get myself used to walking a distance with a load on my back (the first […]

Multi-racial Malaysia

I have been asked “What is the meaning of a multi-racial Malaysia to me?” Being multi-racial does not mean the same thing to every multi-racial country e.g. Singapore claims to be multi-racial but basically it is a predominantly Chinese State. Because of the refusal of the descendants of migrants from China and India to be […]
