A Trip Down Memory Lane?

Watching the Sound of Music for the first time since 2008 does brings back a lot of memories. Why? Because, when I was Standard 5 (2008), I represented my school in a Volleyball competition (Sukan SRAI). So we have to, like, stay at a hostel for 3 days for the event. We stayed at the Sekolah Agama Menengah Tinggi Sultan Hisamuddin’s hostel.

That’s not the point lol, anyway, right before we went there, my mom introduced the Sound of Music to me. I was listening to the songs frequently and repeatedly because I just love the simple tune of the songs. So when I go to the Sukan SRAI event, the songs from the movie (especially “My Favourite Things and “Sixteen Going On Seventeen”) are stuck in my head.

Those songs kept running through my head the whole time, event when I was playing! (I guess that’s why we didn’t win, lol) I didn’t even bring an mp3 to listen to the songs. So when I came back home from the event, when I play the songs, the memories of the Sukan SRAI drift through my head. I can remember them perfectly (not really, hehe) when I listen to the songs. That’s one of the few reasons why I love music, it’s powerful.

I tried that trick once for a trip. I listen to this particular song regularly when traveling to this place. But it didn’t work. When I hear that song (I can’t remember what song, haha), nothing came. No memories of the place at all. Because music works in mysterious ways (like God, lol). It has to came naturally, like those Sound of Music songs.

So when I watched the movie again a few days ago, when I listen to the songs (“My Favourite Things”, particularly), I almost cried (yeah, I’m an emotional wreck xD). There were memories of the Volleyball game drifting through my head, forcing tears to fall from my eyes. Oh how much I miss my Volleyball! πŸ˜₯

Oh god, emotional much? xD Well, I just love volleyball and I hate SAMTTAJ for not having ’em. I just hope that this new school have this sport.

Okay, that’s all from me. No pics, sorryyyyyyyyyy. πŸ˜› Though, I have a song for you guys πŸ˜‰ Here! The song that I was referring to:

Here’s another song from the movie that I love so much. This song does not bring any memories of the event though. :

P/S: The Champions League QF Draw was so unexpected, Spurs got Real Madrid! OH GOD! ;_; But still, to get this far in the competition is enough to make me happy. πŸ˜€

THE END.

Raptor Watch 2011

On Saturday, me and my family went to Tanjung Tuan (formerly known as Tanjung Rachado) for the 12th Raptor Watch. I’ll just post some pics, lol.

Moi.

The birds.

.

.

It was quite crowded.

.

Then we climbeb to the Tanjung Rachado Lighthouse (It was mentioned in the Sejarah book xD) I’ve never gone to the Lighthouse, at least, I don’t remember going there before.

.

The view from the lighthouse overlooking the Selat Melaka was wonderful. (pic taken by Nukmae aka my bro)

I’m not into birds as much as my brothers and my dad but watching the raptors was surely fun. πŸ˜€
All the pictures (except when stated) are my dad’s.

Anyway, here’s a classic Beatles’ song, Blackbird for all of you. I first knew this song from the movie “Across The Universe” Enjoy.

“You were only waiting for this moment to be free”

THE END.

Beautiful Like You…

Sorry, the title has nothing to do with this post, LOL. Anyway, tomorrow I will be having my first exam in SMK Setia Alam. Yesterday I studied nothing, okay, Friday night I had a little History quiz with OMBAKK!!! family, heheh. πŸ˜€

But that’s all, since that, I haven’t read anything. -_______- I only have till tonight to study. Let me list all of the subjects I have to study:

Bahasa Malaysia : What? Okay, I’ll just study last year’s exercise book. xD

English : Collective Nouns, Comparatives, etc etc.

Math : No need to study :p

Science : Chapter 1 only, thank god! xD

History : Chapter 1 & 2. I’ve already studied Chapter 1 and remembered them PERFECTLY, LOL. Oh, and I love chapter 2! Because there’s Frank Swettenham. :p So there shouldn’t be a problem.

Geography : Er. I can’t remember :p

See all of that^ I’m DOOMED -______- And to top it all, there’s Wolves vs Spurs tonight. I can’t miss that! xD I’ll stay up late lah tonight! Hehehe…

Me tonight ^

Okay okay, about the title (if anyone’s interested), it’s a Lee Dewyze‘s song. It may be the next single of Lee. I went to the Lee Dewyze forum a couple of times and most of the people there would like “Me and My Jealousy” as Lee’s next single but personally I love “Beautiful Like You” the most from the album. So I’ll be quite happy if it’s his next single. πŸ˜€

“That’s all? :”

Of course! What do you expect ? xD

PS: Keluarga OMBAKK!!! consists of Zidos, Kerol, Syazana and Me, hehehe. Here are the order:

Zidos (my great-grandpa xD) –> Kerol (my grandpa) –> Syazana (my fake mom xD) –> Finally, me! (I’m the youngest <3)

THE END
