*shall take a break from some variety shows marathon and spill my sardine pack thoughts ere*

I bet that last Friday was the most gay and gleeful Friday for the past 3 years for Poly Students like me. Dah habis sekolah!!(School’s Over!!) Bring in all em’ shiny confetti’s! Had paper checking… yes non archi poly students, we actually have the privilege of checking our papers. No corrections all ah…

Usually, the times when lecturers are stressed out is when student’s work, design or structural don’t work. No amount of brylcreem can save their strands of hair that begs to fall off, when we consult them. Especially for budak out of the world like me. The lecturers would yawn, eat sweet, take a break and wash their face, all within my consultation. No hard pheelings man… Even I could not understand my plans back then. If it weren’t for the cloth on my head, I’d probably go home half botak (bald). No hours of Yu Nam haircare solution or Beijing 101 can help.

Budden… (But then)… the sadistic side of me (and some other friends) were slightly more than happy to see the lecturers so stressed out for quite sometime sorting our papers.

Aside from checking paper, it was also our portfolio submission day…

2013-02-22 09.59.21Hey soul sista! File somemore… File somemore!!!

2013-02-22 09.59.40All colgate-y for the long awaited last day of school… Since Year 1.

2013-02-22 11.39.48“My documentation damn thick” moment for some people. Haha.

2013-02-22 11.00.30One of my documentation pages…. Fuksas Spiral Staircase…. I seriously love this staircase! Slide down face first anyone?

Moving along…. to our random and spring cleaning moments

2013-02-22 11.04.32 2013-02-22 11.04.27Oh what would I not give for them to leave the studio and go home like that?

2013-02-22 11.41.11Forever having illegal gathering.

2013-02-22 11.42.31The TSOs gave up relying solely on us so they lend a helping hand. They had no choice if they want us to leave faster. Haha

2013-02-22 11.35.05Cleaning the top of my table area… I cleared my stuff few days before that already hor… So, don’t put me in the category budak tak guna eh.. (of useless kid).

2013-02-22 11.46.432013-02-22 11.40.34 2013-02-22 11.46.29Shocking amount of mess the previous year seniors left for us. Oh how we’re grateful for their kind intention for leaving notes for us.

2013-02-22 11.40.58 2013-02-22 11.40.54Of course there are good students who are hardworking. Hey! I’m hardworking too! Hardworking snapping the moments. Words alone are not enough mahh…

2013-02-22 11.42.41But of course cheekiness comes in the package..

2013-02-22 11.42.52What did I say?

2013-02-22 11.44.40What did I say?!! Hahaha… Any stronger and he’d come school crawling in from the wall. Heh.

Maximum 3

Assalamualaikum all!

Had final paper today… (technically yesterday). Since we’re in Year 3, instead of our usual 3 papers, it’s 4. The tests dates are set in such that it’s one paper one day. I’d appreciate two papers in one day since traveling to school is no joke.

Notice that I say test? Not exam? The beauty of SP Architecture is that we have no exams. Instead, we have series of tests at the end of the year and, IT’S OPEN BOOK.

In Year 1 and 2, we had 3 papers cause the 4th module had essays instead. Nevertheless, the answers that we have to give is no shorter than our HTA (History and Theory of Architecture) module. So, it’s basically the same…. -____-“

2013-02-15 09.44.16It’s funny how in Year 1 and 2, the lecturers made us zip our bags with our phones off or silent in it but not this year. Our lecturer was totally cool with it. I even listen to music while doing my test!

imagesSo do students! Haha.

Since all of us have been students before, we know how different class have different antics, right. So does mine. Just like how when I was in Primary and Secondary school, 90% of the time I’m in the most noisiest class. Ok la, who am I gonna blame right?  I contribute 70% of the noise pollution.

Back to my story.

Oh yeah, My cool lecturer. Halfway through the tests, some phone rang and other nonsense, but he just close one two eyes. Shiok kannn!!??

I’ll have a separate post for the tests later on. Haha. Too sensitive to share now. Might just be imprisoned if any of the lecturers find this blog while grading us. Haha. Or worst, I might not even get my diploma cert! The peril of the past three years is no joke and I don’t wanna go through it again. 3 is enough.

As I mentioned that yesterday was our 4th paper, reading time starts at 0950 and test commences at 1000. At 0950, half of the class was still on their way. That’s how serious tests is in our life. Haha. Not me of course. ;b

Prior to the test, the lecturer went, “This paper is not easy. It’s very tricky. You’ve gotta read it properly.”

I just went, ” Huh, alamak (malay lingo for omg) like that no need to take the test la. Cannot make it already.”

Haha. I mean I could’ve just asked for the answer key but I doubt the lecturer had it with him then. Heh


Conversation with friends on our way home.

(F): I was contemplating to come to school today. I know its a test, high weightage, but, I was sooooo tired plus the cooling cloudy weather, t’was such a challenge. But then again, I need the marks, so I had to wake up.

(S): Me too, I just couldn’t wake up this morning.

Me: Me too. I woke up earlier today but somehow got ready later. Pfft. Slept in the train like a baby some more.

(F): They should’ve squeeze at least the last 2 paper in one day. I tried studying for the test last night but, the slides were too long! Or, just have 3 papers. 4 is too much!

Me: Yaaaa!!! I know right, when I was at the lecture with 92 slides I just went Oh my god, WHAT IS THIS!!?? And 90% of the slides I saw them for the first time in my life after downloading them.

(F): Yup, just shows how often we come school. I read until the 5th slide and went to bed. Seriously, all the slides are 40+, 50+…

Me: Where got time for all those!?

(F): Exactly!



The things we do just to get out of school.

And yes, unless you’re one of those guai kia (good kids) or kanchong spider (Those forever in a haste kind) you probably have all the slides downloaded a week ahead.

But, I bet, most of us download the night before the test. Better still, some come to school and get the slides from other classmates.


Conversation for slides:

*Friend transfers folder containing all the slides to desktop and opened the folder*

*5mins before test starts*

(M): *looks at (F)’s desktop screen*gasp* OH.MY.GOD. THERE’S POWERPOINT SLIDES!!??

(F): Yup. You didn’t know?

(M): Why did I only see the pdfs? Eh, can transfer to me?

And so F passes her harddisk/thumbdrive.


*Friend walks to my station*

(Z): Eh Aqilah, E is gonna be late. Can you pass your harddisk slides later.

Me: Yup yup, no prob, bruhh.

(Z): Thanks man.

*note: no communication between students during test*

In the class, sharing is totally caring.

Caring ain’t us?


Which is which?


Time check 4.38am. Cadding brutally.. living up to archi student motto: Part-time student, Full-time ninja.

I dare say that I’m skipping laters lecture not because I can. Heh. But, one and a half hour video on our beloved world renowned womanizer architect enchek Frank Lloyd Wright. Seriously!!?? I have a life man! I need to train my muscles. Have I told any of you? My fitness level is so dang high, people are jealous. I’m serious. I can plank for 8 solid hours, or up to 12, whichever my fats are contented with on my bed. Any fitness instructor coulda, woulda and shoulda be jealous.

Usually, I would be sleepy by this hour, ok no, jangan bedek. I would be sleepy once I see my drawings on autocad. I don’t know what is keeping me awake.


I can usually stay up for 48 solid hours straight, bedridden, unless, I need to do whatevs necessary, watching finishing Korean Drama series or English TV Series (gahhhh!!! I miss my Abang Morgan!) but when it comes to doing work, 1 hour max and this imaginary voice screams at my ear,” I’m tired. My lower back is aching. Tension headache. Light’s too dim. Gotta go school. Too hungry. Hands are tired” All sorts of blardy reason, I tell you.

Niwaes, lemme track my insomniac cause:

Dominos pizza at 9pm?

Might be. (I’m still full now, it’s a miracle.)

Green Tea?

Might be.

Excitement for skipping later’s lecture?


Nag Alert


Came home to find this “depressing” post on the class Facebook  page after good mediterranean dinner with my dahling galpals.

FYI, every lecturer, whether Archi related module or not, have this standard script at the last few weeks of school, “Why is it so hard for Archi students to come school? You guys are not the first batch.” *insert like a boss meme* heh

nagNot depressed cause of the nag per se, haha… More like… I’m a firm believer that you must go to school, not even skip one day. But, my body have this badass season where I can’t wake up on time la, feeling a little queasy that day la, it’s okay I can afford to skip this module for the nest 2 lessons la….

Today’s worst.

Woke up at 1100 while today’s timetable end at 1130.
