i saw fireflies last friday.
oh yeah, instead of making a very eye-catching title this time, i decided to go with a more simpler one, and just go straight to the point instead of making u guys read the whole entire blog, only to find it wasn't the best way to spend your precious five minutes. ahaha.
hi (or hai) everyone. personally i prefer hai, coz hi just looks weird. but when im writing in english, hai seems weird also. oh well. erm, the first line pretty much says it all. i saw a firefly last friday. how long has it been since i last saw a firefly? in case somebody doesnt even know what a firefly is, its those bugs that have lights on their... rear ends. :P yeah, its a REAL bug! lolz. of course you guys have seen it... but when was the last time you saw it yourselves? dont count the times you've seen them on tv okay.
i remember playing with those things when i was a little boy, plenty of times. at that time, it was something u see quite often. but that was years ago. and last friday, i was in the middle of nowhere. well it wasnt exactly nowhere, i was at a drug rehab centre in the interior parts of kedah. i followed my father to a wedding, the daughter of the person that runs that centre was the one getting married.
the reason im writing about this, it just suddenly hit me, the children of tomorrow arent even going to know things like this, actually exist. they're going to think its just something made-up that often comes out in cartoons, like spongebob, or that purple-coloured dinosaur. so we should do whatever it is we can to help save the environment, to make sure these creatures wont go extinct.
suddenly im an environmentalist. lol. i checked, and it turns out these things arent going extinct anytime soon. huhu. guess i got worried for nothing.
i was planning on writing about my holidays, but i think im going to spare you ppl the agony of going thru ridiculously boring stuff about myself. there really is nothing to talk about. basically i just stayed at home, caught up with the lost series, south park. i couldnt even play games, since the desktop got busted. damn.. what a wasted holiday this has been. i didnt meet up with any of my long lost friends. didnt even get to go anywhere special since the redang plan blew up in smokes. boy, i sure was bloody upset when the redang plan got cancelled. you'd think you can rely on some ppl after knowing them for almost 2 years, but i guess you can't... oh well. lifes like that. i can go all nite talking bout these sorts of stuff, but really, whats the point, so ill just leave it at that..
here's something interesting. i was watching lost, in the first few days of the holidays, and there was something that charlie did that caught my interest. you see, charlie was about to die, and he knew exactly when and where he was going to die. how did he know? well, theres this other guy called desmond, and basically, he can see the future. so.. this dude, desmond, he's been saving charlies life over and over again, but apparently the universe has a way of self correcting itself, so no matter how many times desmond saves charlie from death's grasp, sooner or later, he's going to die. the reason charlie decides to die this time, was because desmond said, they were going to get rescued, (they as in all the people stranded on the island), and he particularly saw claire (charlie's love interest) getting on a helicopter and going away, but before that happens, charlie has to die....
Sooo, anyways, before charlie dies, he lists down the top 5 moments of his entire life, intending on giving it to claire. and it got me thinking, 'hmm, that isnt a bad idea after all'. not that i plan on dying anytime soon, (no worries ppl :D), but it is something interesting to think about. while at utp, i sometimes talk to my friends about something similar. its not a list of my top 5 moments in life, but instead a list of things i intend to do before dying. since the list of things i want to do before dying grows all the time, for now i guess i'll list down the top 5 moments of my life, so far.
number 5 - all of my relatives from my mothers side singing me happy birthday, and actually getting a coconut for a birthday present from some crazy lunatic. lolz. close friend, act. u know who u are. ;)
number 4 - coming into class 50 minutes late, with food in one hand,
thru the front door, and able to bullsh*t my way out of trouble... :P
number 3 - surviving one week stranded in sabah with friends.
number 2 - stopped a toddler from running into the middle of a busy road (basically, being a hero :P ), and although planned to keep it quiet, close friends found out.
number 1 - being congratulated by a total stranger for getting good grades. came up to me, shook my hand, and said she was proud of me, and told me to keep up the good work..
its not much really, but its my top 5. and for your info, all these things except for number one happened while i was in pasum.. so you can guess why i like going to pasum so much, and why even after 2 years i still go through the trouble of going to kl and meeting friends from pasum, and why i bother trying to arrange reunions when most of them dont really care that much anyways.. it was my first hostel experience. my first time doing everything on my own. the first time i met with ppl from various states, from various backgrounds. being exposed to the real world for the first time. my first taste of university/college life. those were the days..
dont get me wrong though, i like it here in utp, but in terms of the true college experience, my bet is theres no place like UM. when i first started in UTP, i felt a huge difference in UM and UTP. my god, the first week, i realised that the nearest shopping complex was about an hour away... and from that moment on i knew that life was probably never going to be the same, ever again.
oh well, life is full of surprises. you'll never know where you're going to end up in the future. i better stop here, im going to watch another episode of south park before going to bed.
till next time, chow.
