My First French Class

Well, last Saturday, I went to my first french class. Seriously, my parents force me to learn this language because they think that we might migrate to France in 5 years time. However, I still felt excited because I want never exactly learned a new language before.(Excluding learning Japanese from watching excessive japanese animation(anime))

I left my house at 9.30, giving myself enough time to reach my class. My class starts from 10.00am-1.00pm. So I took the train...never did I thought the train would be late. The train was delayed!
In the end, I was 15 minutes late. In my head, I was thinking,"Oh shit! How can I be late for my first class?!"

When I reached the Language School, a lady was kind enough to show me to my class and she gave me my textbook.



I never knew the Language School was this big. I just expected it to be small. I never knew that this School is 3 storey high. You actually have to climb up the stairs. This school even has a mini library. That's pretty cool~!




Luckily, the teacher was also late due to the delayed train. I entered the class to find 7 other people sitting in the class, waiting for the teacher. So, I quickly sat in the last seat available.
Lesson 1 : Don't be late!
Well, being late isn't polite and all the best seats will be taken if you're late.

Guess what, I am the youngest one there. Everyone else is 18-35 years old. I'm the ONLY 16 year old person! It just feels so odd to be the youngest one there.

BTW, my french class is in Room 9~!



This is my classroom for my french class. So this is Room 9... Like it?

Anyway, sitting in the far corner was hard because the teacher stands there as he writes he french stuff. I can't copy if my view is blocked and he teaches very fast. Honestly, I think that french is a little hard due to the pronounciation. It's different and it reminds me of phonics. It's like learning phonics all over again. PS : I hate phonics and I suck at it. Other than that, it's fine.
Lesson 2 : French is like learning phonics.

The french teacher is telling us not to translate french into english. He wants us to think french and be french. Yea, I get that...BUT what am I going to translate french into? Does he wants me to translate french into french?? BUT I don't know french...that's why I'm in french class...duh...
He should chill and let us translate french in english so that we understand french. Then, later, when we understand french, he can make us be or think french.

Anyway, in my entire french class, there are 2 people who understands french super fast. However, I'm pretty bad at french right now. The teacher keeps correcting me & focusing on me. I hate being focused at!
Finally, class is OVER~!!

I took a picture of the seats when everyone left. I sit next to that girl. My seat is on right end of the picture. That green/brown bag in that seat is mine


Here's my teacher's desk. In 3 hours, he managed to teach us some greetings, intoduction, verbs and numbers up to 20.


My French Textbook. Not exactly the best looking textbook, right?

I hope I get to really understand the essence of french. Anyway, next week is going to be interesting because I have forgotten everything.

Much Ado About Our Healthcare

During this week, something terrible but hilarious when you looked back, happened to me.

It was a normal Monday morning. It was close to the end of the month, so I was awaiting for my salary to come in. I was just trying to just hold on till the end of the month. Typical monday. Nothing eventful yet.

Then, it was lunchtime.
I went to lunch with my colleagues.
I ordered myself a lovely nasi kukus with ikan keli. That means steamed rice with catfish for those of you who don't read malay. 

One of my colleague often order this and it always looked good so I decided to give it a try.

Bad mistake.

I ended up having a fishbone stuck in my throat. When you think of it, it's pretty silly. But it scared the living daylights out of me at that moment. I tried swallowing rice to push the fishbone down but after half a bowl later, I found it to be not working.

I heard from my dad when I was younger that, if a fishbone get stuck in your throat, you had to do an operation. And that only fueled my fea…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Alter ego, SUIT UP!!

Man, it feels odd to have people believe in you at the very moment you do not trust yourself. It feels odd to hear people's praises of you when you're feeling incapable. So I guess, it's time for one of my many alter ego to suit up if I wanna win that debate competition!!

Like any other person, I have many alter ego's...and I'm gonna list most of them today.


Ms Drama Queen
Likes :Attention and spotlight. She's a diva.
Dislikes :People stealing her spotlight or not getting her spotlight.
She is : A real drama queen. She whines & complains alot though. She thinks that the world revolves around her.
Can't handle :Ms Productive


Ms Arrogant
Likes : Winning, winning and winning.
Dislikes : Losing and losers.
She is : A real mean arrogant person. She really doesn't care about the other people. She thinks she is the best. Mostly, she thinks that her opponents aren't even her equal unless they have proven otherwise. Even then, she still thinks she is better than …
