My Dearest Friend in Hospital

Saturday, July 31, 2010

Name: Andy Lau Khin Foong*
Location: Ipoh Specialist Hospital, 3rd Floor, Ward 716

31 July 2010 - I went to ISH to visit him together with Yee Lim yesterday. He is having high fever around 40 degree Celsius and coughing non-stop, suspected of having dengue. The latest news that I get from him was he was vomiting a few times today. To those friends of him out there, please do not hesitate to visit him if you're free. Hope to see him recover soon~

Katrina's Birthday Bash


31 July 2010 - We celebrated Katrina's birthday on the 28th this month, approximately 4 days ago. After the co-curriculum ended at 5pm, we made a surprise celebration for Katrina in the parlour. She was waiting for Yee Lim to fetch her back and totally unaware of the celebration we did for her.


We bought a simple cake for her as usual. We were actually looking for sponsors for the past few days for the real present. So there was around 10+ people contributing to the present. The first present we gave was a small teddy bear and the names of the 10+ people were written in the card. She was shocked and confused at the same time. 10+ people for a small teddy bear?


Nevertheless, she accepted it and was touched by the celebration we did for her. The real present was presented to her when the celebration ended. It's one of the product of dooo-dolls! The price is not cheap and that's the reason we were looking for sponsors. For those of you who don't know what is that.. google it! =)

First Prefect Outing

Sunday, July 25, 2010

25 July 2010 - So we, the prefects had an outing at Kuen Wei's house last night. It was a combined outing by ISUC and SAC but almost all prefects from different commission attended. His house was extra large and I think it's 4 times larger than mine. Hong Wei said it was the best house for outing ever! LOL



I went with Joe Hang and Swee Kwan and reached his house around 8pm. We had trouble seeking for his house as we are not familiar with the area there. Everyone was enjoying their food before they went crazy and splash everyone with water.


I thought it was some kind of formal outing. Never did I expect that they can play till all wet and really had their own happy moments there. It's the feeling of a real bond between each and everyone there.



After all those rumble and crazy water-splashing was sharing moment. We formed a circle and one by one, we share what we feel and what we hope for the board. I salute Swee Kwan for what he has said to us. He felt unfair for not being elected as the commission head and he dare to speak up. He is willing to accept the fact and he is willing to share what does he feel to all of us. My respect for him has increased tremendously.


I left around 10.30pm for Yee Lim's birthday celebration. =)

Prefectorial Board AGM 2010


25 July 2010 - What happened last Friday was totally unexpected. I will start off with Mr. Karu's AGM which began at 1.00pm on that day. The way he handle the AGM was unacceptable for all of us. There were no reports from the 6 Excos and the commission heads because the seniors are barred from entering the lecture theatre. So this is the first time in history only juniors are allowed to attend the AGM. The only agenda in the AGM was the statement of accounts from the treasurer which no one is there to care about what he is crapping and the election of the new commission heads.

Okay, I'm not gonna critize anyone anymore. So the list of the top 6 Excos are:

Head Prefect: Tan Tihn Chern
Lady Head Prefect: Yogamalar
Deputy Head Prefect: R.J. Kevin
Deputy Lady Head Prefect: Deborah Yaw
Honorary Secretary: Nicholas Chen
Honorary Treasurer: Mark Ooi

And the newly elected commission heads for guys are:

Discipline Commission (DISCO) -  Foong Chee Hoe
Cleanliness and Security Commission (CS) - Teoh Ting Yuan
Home Affairs Commission (Homies) - Lee Kar Heng
Inter-Society Understanding Commission (ISUC) - Ivan Tan
Student Affair Commission (SAC) - Wong Joe Hang


I've forgotten the lady comm. heads. Sorry~
Frankly speaking, I felt that it's unfair to choose all the non ex-prefects as the commission heads because they have less experience than the ex-prefects. Majority of them are not satisfied with it and it's not even considered a handover. My comm. head is not there. No one is there to acknowledge them. I'm not happy. =(


However, what's done is done. I can't reverse what has happened. What I can comment is, in order to show others that I can manage the commission,


The photos in this post is the real AGM conducted by Er Vin and a family of true prefects. Enjoy~

The Brave One

Sunday, July 18, 2010

18 July 2010 - Exactly 1 week ago, I went to school for this year's drama, The Brave One. It was a superb 3-night drama on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Since I've my prefect duty on Saturday night, I thought I will have free access to watch the drama. However, prefects are only allowed to enter 30 minutes after the drama started and we have to go in and out the hall frequently for duties. This leaves me for watching only half of the drama.



Therefore, I decided to watch the drama again with the free tickets given to my class on Sunday night. Nobody in my class seems to be interested to watch the drama so Xinh Guan gave out the remaining 2 tickets to me and Sze Ngou.


The first part of the drama was quite boring to be frank. It was totally different from Corrinne Mah's production. This year's drama they have too much talking and lesser actions. Some said it was more like a comedy than an actual drama.


They slotted in some of the Michael Jackson's songs and Yiruma's Kiss The Rain in the second part of the play after the break. I was sitting with Yoong Xiang and his dad since some of my close friends are not around.


That's all basically. Enjoy the photos that I took after the drama for both days~


An Unexpected Compliment

Thursday, July 15, 2010

15 July 2010 - Last Wednesday was co-curriculum day right? So as usual after St. John meeting, I went for Editorial's meeting. As we were discussing half-way, I saw a man, his right hand was holding an umbrella. He was walking and stopped at my class, looking at us with a confused face. I walked towards him and ask him: 'apa u mau?'... No la of course, just joking. I walked to him and ask him what can I do for him. And then he told me he was looking for Rotaract Club. He told me he is a Rotarian. I know what does that means. I'm an Interact Club member too when I was form 3.

So I walked and walked from class to class to find for the Rotaract Club he was looking for. And true enough, the club is located at the end of the lower six classes, I don't know exactly which class is that but it's opposite LSA3. He thank me and I'm back to what I was doing then.

But then today, Wen Jie suddenly hand me an envelope with a card inside. It was a nice card from the same man that I've helped out last Wednesday, he is Rotarian Arthur.

Dear Ivan,

Hi! This is Rotarian Arthur Yeong from the Rotary Club of Kinta.
Thank you very much for helping me to look for the Rotaract Club last Wednesday.
Thank you for going from class to class in your effort to help me.
If I can be of service to you, don't hesitate to let me know, ok?
Wish you the best in your future endeavours.

Yours in Rotary,
Arthur Yeong

I'm touched as I did not expect anything in return from him. Thanks Rotarian Arthur for your compliment~

Mei Yen & Jing Wah's Farewell Gathering

Sunday, July 11, 2010

11 July 2010 - So we had this farewell party on the 30th June I think. Actually the day was the drama ticket-selling day for our class from 9.30am till 12.30pm but we stopped selling around 11.15am and the 6 groups were ordered by Xinh Guan to gather at Old Town Kopitiam opposite St. Michael's for this class gathering.


Sitting on the left is Mei Yen whereas on the right is Jing Wah. Mei Yen will be going to Sunway to study A-level while Jing Wah is still waiting for her application to the arts stream. I think most of us were present except for Jegendran because he went back to school for some photograph-taking session.

Look how happy Xinh Guan and Sandra was? LOL =D

After we finished eating, all fo us decided to snap some photos as remembrance for this meaningful farewell and gathering.



The farewell cake was the last to be brought in, cheers! Happy Farewell to both of you, Mei Yen and Jing Wah! We will miss you~
