Michael Jackson, Puncak Perdana and pure TORTURE!!!!

Okay, first things first. Puncak Perdana. I'm sure many TESLians would know what I'm talking about here. It's just this god forsaken place in the middle of no where!! I went there cuz' I received the surat tawaran from the internet and it stated the date 27th July. I was already feeling sooo bummed about going back so early and then it went downhill!! So me and my bro and my mom drove there, right? And the stupid awful sign boards just keep on confusing people. We kept getting lost here and there! I was beginning to feel this awful sinking feeling right in the pit of my stomach. You know that feeling when all your intestines feel like they're swimming and wriggling about each other? And your organs feel like they're about to drop right out of your body? And when you feel like suddenly there's no floor and you're just falling down into a black abyss? Yup. That's the miserable feeling I felt. I kept thinking to myself; "Ya Allah, please don't let them ask for stupid things like the medical check-up sh@t and 200 gazillion borangs!! I went thru that crap already and I ain't goin' thru all that again!!"


But my nightmare came true...Once I got there, I noticed girls holding on to the x-ray files. My heart practically went *CLUNK!* at the sight of those dreaded brown files. I wanted to run away and never set foot in a university again, education and work be damned! I took big gulps of air and tried not to burst into tears as we unloaded and packed everything from Abang's car. Getting all of my stuff in the room I was assigned to was such a pain! And then I unpacked everything and put them in my closet. I'll have to admit the rooms in Puncak Perdana were fantastic! But I still had that brimming feeling of utter doom.

Scared To Death

So I go over to the other room in that apartment and shyly asks the girl if she was new.

"Are you new here? I mean, is this your first time getting into university?"

"Yeah," answers the girl.

"Oh, I've been in UiTM before but I did ASASI TESL and I've been through all of that MMS thing!"

She doesn't get anything but the next girl I met told me a right horror! Her name was Biha.
And she told me it was all because I clicked on the wrong link! She said when we checked on the upu website the link that directed us to the surat tawaran was not what we should have clicked on. What we should have done was go right into the student portal link and then get our surat tawaran. The one in the student portal would've stated the beautiful date: 3rd July. The one on the 27th was for all the kids to go over and live in Puncak Perdana for one miserable week for that MMS thingy and then pack up and move over to the main campus once all the MMS crap's over! Why on earth would anybody plan something as stupid as that?? Why send kids to live in a god forsaken place in the middle of no where only to have them travel back to the main campus??? Honestly, I think it was some sorta brain wash thing they did to kids. You know; the whole get-them-to-a-god-forsaken-place-and-brainwash-them kinda thing?


And once I found this whole thing out, I told this lady everything and she sympathized with me. She told me I had two options; 1. That I stay for the sh*tty MMS thing again and just wait for the buses to come and take me back to the main campus like all the other girls or 2. I packed up my stuff myself and go back to Penang to get all of the medical check-up and borang thingy done then go back to Shah Alam and straight away daftar diri kat kolej dlm main campus. I chose option 2. Imagine the horror of getting all of those things back down from the 4th floor.

So now I'm back home. YAY!!! But it'll only last for a few days...:( I'll have to call that lady again and ask her where should I daftar diri. It's all so complicated, yeah? I hate how the whole system works! I almost died that night by carrying all of those heavy things. It was exhausting.

Today, I've printed out everything I needed to and I've done that sh*tty medical check-up thing. I just need to get all of the other photostated copies chopped and signed by a grade A officer. Ya Allah, I hope I won't get into any trouble once I'm there at the main campus. I pray for that.


On to Wacko Jacko.


God, I was so sad the morning I was leaving for Puncak cuz' that was the morning I found out that Michael Jackson died.

The world had never known a better singer, dancer, performer or artist. He was truly great at his craft; a real genius. So gifted and talented. Justin Timberlake could try to dance like MJ but it still won't look as good! No one could copy Michael Jackson! Michael Jackson was simply unique! He was on a whole different level.

You ask anybody, be it your very own maid from Indonesia(I actually did ask my maid that when I was 10), everybody knew who Michael Jackson was.

People took advantage of him and made him out to be a sick pedophile. Well, if he was such a sicko how come the police couldn't find anything on him? You know pedophiles would have their ways of satisfying their sick needs ie. photographs, websites, videos, etc, etc. Pedophilic rings are always like that. But nobody could pin a thing on Michael. And why would one of the parents of said abused child want to settle such a horrid act outside of court? If your child was sexually abused would you just give it up like that? Wouldn't you wanna see the sick dude rot in jail?

He was a humanitarian. He loved children and he himself was like a child. He saw the world with the eyes of child. He had that sweetness and innocence to him. I'm not saying he was an angel but he was not the sick person people thought he was. He tried to make the world a better place with his songs. He tried to make people aware of what the earth was turning into in Earth Song. He made people think about racism with Black and White.

People who wanted his money destroyed him and in the process rid the world of a great artist. Well, at least he's now a muslim so we'll see him in heaven. :)

Favorite songs and clips of all times:



Smooth Criminal


Remember The Time

Beat It

I believed, the truth, MJ did nothing of those. He was damn famous and rich and people were just trying to get him like that. Love his songs, love his style...he's the only one. JT's nothing la compared to MJ. got yourself in klutz again yea honey? See ya around. And hey, post up a pic of your room will ya?
Take care :)

Nobody an compare themselves to MJ. He was just to good at his field. If Madonna died I wouldn't be as sad. In fact, I might not be sad at all.

I probably might hv to go back to mawar pun cuz' I'm not supposed to stay at puncak but I'm supposed to live at main campus.

Tks for being my follower, I can relate to you in the signboards of shah alam, remembered when we 1st went there, we got lost when we want to go to Quality hotel at sec. 14, we saw the damn hotel (mind my language) but kept on missing the small lane to the front of the hotel and we drove into the highway many times b4 we finally succeed. Yes, my son had to stay at a hostel temporarily during orientation week . We helped him with his belongings but worried how he'll manage alone after the orientation is over and he had to shift to the permanent hostel.Anyway, he did manage it. As for Michael Jackson. I'm not exactly a fan of his, I read that he had a terminal disease but my only concern now is how they are going to bury him, upacara Islam ke christian?

Sparrow_Wing said...

I loved MJ. May not have been his number one fan but I liked him nonetheless. I heard they're doing a christian burial for him since it is up to his parents now that he's dead. It's sad. I wished it wasn't so. Don't worry about the language. i know how frustrating it must've been to get to anywhere in Shah Alam. My god, the signboards are like totally confusing!! Thanks for commenting!.
