Two Headed Snake

YEEPPEES! Now I can convert MPEG videos to 3gp format and can be viewed on my mobile. I'm so excited. Besides today's the start of the weekend. So, I can spend time on myself.
Sometimes I feel like a trash. Or shall I say used? I tried to hide those feelings away. I could say that 'I am being professional." and you'd say "I'm tired." when I told you I feel left out . You asked if I can help you with this and that. And you know what? I'm not your servant. You don't pretend to be tired or weak. Wait till one day, God will show you how does it feel to be one tired pathetic idiot who can't walk or breath and no one will help you, then you will know how it feels like to be 'tired'. You can talk to me nicely and politely as a saint whenever you reject me as a friend. I accept it with an open heart but do you think I am really happy?

Friends tell. I don't think you are that trustworthy. I know I am but you don't trust me ever since I made my small mistake. You hide from me. You talk directly behind my back. I'm embarrassed. I'm clueless. And you gave me that pathetic look after that. Do you know how terrible it feels like?

You are the one who's not professional. You don't know how to treat people the way they want. I wonder how will you treat your own guests if you ever have your own house. There's no sense of hospitality in you. Wherever you go, I think that's the most important thing to have in a person's mind when treating people. The person you are talking to is not an animal.

After you read this, you will know how sensitive I am. It is so hurtful that I feel like smashing your godforsaken face. You are the one who's turning into a self-centred twit who uses the word "I" a million times a day just for your own pleasure.

This message is not just for you. It is also for the several of you who tagged me as a friend but your foul heart leads you to treating me like this.

Friendship

Let's talk about friendship.

It is something that everyone posses. It is like a treasure. I believe some of you guys wouldn't want to share their friendship with others but come on. It's a crappy thought.Get it out of your mind. It will only lead you to the wrong side.

No one loves a backstabber in a friendship. Just like a cruise or a ship. You don't want a pirate to be in the same cruise as you. It's very dangerous. Neither do I. But pirates will get in their way into you "cruise" somehow right? It is hard to judge a person just by one look. You will never know who they really are. Who knows, how bad a person looks may have a heart of an angel?

You may be deceived by their kindness and their laughter. But you will never know the serpent be in the flower. It has a poisonous venom that is set to kill.

You the victim, has to be patient. What goes around,comes around. This might be your "bad day" but trust me, whatever happens, has a meaning to it and all you need is to have faith in yourself.

Translation Competition by Berita Harian

This afternoon I went to Toa Payoh Central Community Centre. A few of my friends and I went to the translation competition organised by Majlis Pusat and Berita Harian. It was fun. The words I needed to translate were easy but the obstacle is to translate all the 10 words from Malay to English and vice-versa 15 second so that really pressured me.
For my turn, I count myself lucky as I picked the right alphabet and the words came out turns our to be so easy. But too bad, the answer "struck" my head at a slower rate and time was running fast, so I could not manage to get it all right.

The thing that was funny about some of the participants is that they are too nervous that one of them said "Pos-pass!" to pass on to the next word. And the other one translated shark in Malay last minute to "buaya" (crocodile).

After the competition, I went to Tampines to buy food .I haven't eat since 11. Then I went home. It ended earlier than expected.

I really think this competition is a good move to make Malay students effectively bilingual. I wouldn't want to miss the chance to participate again if I have the chance to.

Toodles.
