( omg i'm flying off tommorow and i haven't even started packing yet! and i have a zillion things i've to get for the trip and i have some calls to make before i leave. dieee :/ )
So here were some thoughts when i was in India,
the place is DIRTY DIRTY DIRTY.
the streets are filled with cow dung, camel dung, goat dung, you name it you got it.
there's no such thing as waking up to lovely fresh air to the buzz of the bees chirps of the birds etc. Also, its really polluted, maybe because there're so many vehicles everywhere.
Have i told you about the drivers in India? homg, they take the term CRAZY DRIVERS to a whole new level, i tell you, u can see cars going both ways on a one way street! -_- and i noticed a really weird policy or rule in India, at the back of most of the cars, they have a sticker saying HONK PLEASE. chaotic traffic situation, check.
And come on, do we really look that outrageous? We spotted so many random locals snapping pictures of us as we toured around India. that, was really too much. in India, we're really like stars! everywhere we go, there are paparazzis ready to take our pics -_-
but one thing that touched me was how truly blessed i was to live in a country like Malaysia. where there isn't AS much discrimination, where it is a rich and clean land and there is actually fresh air to be enjoyed. AND WHERE CHAR KUEY TEOW, PAN MEE, DIM SUM, LAKSA..*salivates* are available.
aren't we so luckyyyyy : )
i sound like some Malaysia truly Asia advert o.o
anyway, yes, all it took me was a trip down India to make me realise how blessed i was, and really, looking at those kids, who at a young age have to beg for money just to hold on to what's left of a meager life they have, and to never know what it'll feel like to graduate from high school or to take a walk in school shoes.
i remember seeing the look on a little girl's face at about the age of eleven, when she saw us, the group of noisy Malaysians. she was barefoot, dressed in rags and her hair dishevelled. At first i thought that she was going to come beg for money, to plead that we feed her baby(its exactly like in slumdog where those kids would carry babies around to beg), but when she stopped to stare at our shoes, i understood.
i saw the awe in her eyes, first the sparkle, i could feel her wonder and excitement over the pair of shoes, and then there was sadness.
right there and then, i really wished that i had given her my shoes.
it would've made the little girl's day :)
For MC : ) how much trouble it took to take this wonderful pic!
We visited the Taj Mahal as well, which was quite obviously the highlight of our tour! : ) the building is magnificent but what's even better was the story behind it. How Shah Jahan built that beautiful castle to commemorate his late wife and as a symbol of his unconditional love for her.
sigh, when will i get MY very own Taj Mahal ;)
Before entering the Taj Mahal, you'll see a really gorgeous red building like the one above. Preparing you for the bigger picture! you're not really able to see the Taj Mahal from outside this building so tourists have to walk through this entrance to get to the Taj Mahal.
I can tell you this, we were awestruck when we saw the taj mahal, then that was where all the girly squeels starts. It is really THAT amazing : )
look how intricate the interior is!
This place is awesome for aspiring photographers! beautiful architecture, and beautiful people! :p

To sum it up in one word, the Cambridge speaking test was horrifying.
I honestly had NO FRICKIN CLUE it was going to be that difficult! sigh. but i guess i sorta had a hunch, seeing all the other 20-30 year old people who signed up for the exam as well.
dahlah lost my voice, my train of thoughts when KAPOOFT on me during the exam, BUT..i did my best la.
i spluterred, rambled, yes i really rambled due to extreme nervousness, and bullshitted my way through so i'm just PRAYING real hard that whatever i said somehow made sense to the examiner *launches into nonsensical muttering*
blehh, i was asked to comment on the effect of the changes of the human rhythm of life and how things like AGRICULTURE have an effect/is affected by it -_-
and the pics given to me and teck hing we had to discuess about,OMG holy mama -_________-
i have never felt so helpless my whole life!
ok i actually felt incredibly helpless and idiotic when i sat for my accounts paper but whatever. this comes a CLOSE SECOND! : (
anyway, since coming back from camp, i've been bumming around/going to ou. :)
problematics day tmrw, can't wait!
I MISS ;
