Eat and Stress

What a looong week for me. Seriously! Even today, I have to attend school. =.=" As usual, the attendance on Saturdays are always very poor. It has been an extremely week for me.
Preparation for Debate, Debate Competition again an extremely well-known school which I would not mention, Being Madame Speaker of the Debate, a lot of nagging, polishing coconuts and so on. There was some disappointments but at the end of the day, I would say I really enjoyed myself.

Monday, 24 March

I rise from bed as usual at 6.00a.m sharp. I would always tell myself, "I wish i could sleep longer.... ughh..." I went to school by a mini school bus which can be considered as a rare species on the road nowdays. Do you know? I watch Tamil Drama Series every morning at 6.50a.m without the subtitles. Being in the bus half awake, there was 2 indian guys who always sits in front of me. I'm telling you that they just can't stop talking or shall I put in a rude way, They can't shut up. If they are talking, its fine. But the way they're talking is like they're arguing with each other! omg.... I'm going through this every morning.

When I reached school, I'll settle down on my usual spot, the canteen while waiting for the bell to ring with my friends. School starts a little earlier today as there was a few programmes such as, The ex-Form 5 students who scored straight A's in their SPM and they're invited to give us a talk on "How Do They Do It!?"

We had our Debate discussion almost everyday but today, 4 of us (Vi, Shaz, Kasturi and I) were given the permission to miss all classes for today and tomorrow. Ji Mi and the others joined us for our debate discussion. You know..... Evrytime when we're having our discussions, we MUST do something that has nothing to do with the debate. Its our way of having fun. This time, we made fun of Ji Mi's hair.... PS: sorry, Ji Mi for posting this but I have to... XD I realised a few guys love having long hair. Take for example, Ji Mi and Shaz. XD

Shaz and Vinaya kept telling me that,
" Deniseeeee, I want long hair!!! Can I cut your hair and grow it on my head????"
Omg.... SWT!!! NO........ You'll never have my hair.
"But why....................?"
=.="
and when i say I wanna cut my hair they kept telling me,
"Nooooooo, DONT CUT YOUR HAIR!!!!. I DONT WANT IT TO BE SHORT!!!"
=.=" omg guys, Im just cutting it shorter but not short.

Ok, this is what you get when you have long hair.

Hmmmmm.... I wonder how my hair looks like....


Cheese!

Hairstylist : Miss Denise Tan
Client/ Model : Ji Mi Yeow

I couldn't help it....... Its really long and I have to tie it up to see how does it look like. Anyways, after styling his hair, my hands smells like shampoo. *sniffsniff*
Heyyyy..... You're using Pantene!!!
Yeahh.. How do you know??
You hair and my hand smells like Pantene.

Our Debate discussion lasted the whole day until 2.30. We manage to finish up everything in time and it is time for LUNCH! My favorite time of the day. We (shaz, vinaya, jhun ren and I) head down to Pasar Kuala Ampang to have our lunch. I could say that there are a lot of delicious food here such as fried rice, nasi lemak, pan meen, yee meen, wantan mee and the list goes on. I ordered myself a pot of yee meen and a glass of Teh Ice. Honestly, I don't really fancy eating mee/ noodles exept this particular one.

I know, Its empty coz I ate it all. If you're wondering why theres a tissue on the spoon, its because my spoon accidentally slipped and fell into the soup. =.="

After finishing a bowl of that and my drinks, I was still not full. O.O I don't know whats wrong with me but I have a huge appetite for 1 week already. I have to say that its most probably my PMS or I'm just eating a lot.




Now that..... is my 5th bowl of yee meen. @.@ I know........ theres something wrong with me. People always say that I'm very skinny. I accept the fact I am... Thats why I'm eating a lot. However, no matter how much i eat, I just can't gain weight. The only time I gained some weight is after I had my meal and my weight will increase by 1 kg and after 4 hours, it goes back to normal. XDXD

HEHE. Actually, It wasn't my 5th bowl. Incase you didn't notice, there was only 4 of us eating lunch. Therefore, that's my 2nd bowl. They guys were, Denise... are you okay???? XD I think so...

Poser....

Vinaya and Jhun Ren eating and talking abt games as usual, Cabal, the new online game which is better than Dota in terms of graphics. I think.

As for the both of us, we kept eating and eating.

Vi is still hungry....

Satisfied people after having their meals.
Wait, I do have one picture on someone after having an elephant for dinner. XD But, I don't think its such a good Idea to post it. Unless you people are requesting for it.

After eating, all of us decided to head home. Shaz, Jhun Ren and I ad to walk home. All of us were dead beat and hot!! We took a detour into Ampang Point since JR said he wanna get some ice cream and also belanja us!! whee....

He got me a Chocotop, Shaz a chocolate milkshake and a lime flavored sundae for himself.

omg. I look weird. Shaz look.... high?XD

Shaz walked home alone after that. JR and I walked home since we live at the same place. When I got home, I found 2 boxes of Dominoes Pizza.

@.@

I was wondering..... Who called pizza??? No one is at home except for the maid and ellise is in school. So, I started asking my maid whom I call her "Kak/Kakak" I speak with her in BM and shes the only person I speak BM with nowadays.

Kak, Who ordered the pizza???
Dunno.... someone sent it.
Did you call??? (why did i even ask this question coz she doesn't know how how to read or make a phone call to other ppl besides my parents)
No.... I didn't call anyone.
Then how come there 2 boxes of pizza here if no one ordered it??? *starts to wonder and feel weird*
I don't know....
Did you pay for those???????
No, i did not. They said it was already paid for.
Har?!! Whaat??? okok.. tell me what happened... everything!
Ok... The delivery man came, and handed me 2 boxes of the pizza. So I told him that I didn't ordered any pizza. He said that yes, you did ordered it and you address is ....... Then I said yeah, thats the address but i don't have any money to pay fir and I did not ordered it. He said, Nonono, its the right house and its okay, you dont have to pay for it since its already paid and here's your pizza. Then I told him, nononono, I dont want to accept it. but finally i accepted it.
Ohhhhhhh..... Weirdddd..... Who ordered it????


I kept asking her again and again. I opened up the box and see what is in it. Aloha Chicken! my fav! I'm starting to think that I got a secret admirer who just sent me 2 box of pizza. XDXD JOKING!! I was too curious to find out who ordered it, I picked up my house phone and called the number plastered on the pizza box.

*tuuuut tuuut* x 6
no one answered.
i tried again and they said that the number I've dialed is not in service.

Fine, I called dominoes instead. So, the usual protocol, they asked what did i want to order,
I told them,

No thank you but I would like to tell you that I've received 2 boxes of regular pizza, Aloha Chicken that I did not order.
and the conversation goes on....

My maid wouldn't allow me to eat the pizza as she thought it could be poisonous and someone might wanna kill us. XD Then, Dominoes called again and told me that,

There was a old lady came to Dominoes pizza, Ampang Point Branch, ordered the pizza, paid for it and asked them to deliver it to my address.
When i heard them saying that, I was like... omg...... why would an old lady do that? hmmm.... Thats extremely nice of her!! Then, I received another phone call.

Hello...
Hi Denise, did you receive the pizza??? 2 boxes of them I bought for all of you to eat..
HI aunty!!!! *i could recognise her voice =)* Ohhhhhhhhh.... so you're the one who sent the pizza!~ Thank you very very much!!!! I didn't know it was you. The maid and I was wondering who sent it and we didnt dare to eat it at all.
Ohhh..... Its for all of you to eat for lunch actually.... I hope you like it.
We really love it. Thank you very very much again! Sorry to trouble you aunty....
no lah... dont worry abt it... enjoy the food ar.. take care.. byeee
Ok..take care too byee...

@.@ thats really sweet of her. But, I couldn't eat anymore that time. I told my maid that I would bring to school and eat the next day. Sometimes, I feel really sad for my aunty as she's quite lonely. Not to say that shes all alone la but I could see that she needs someone to talk to.

At night, I had a huge dinner. Not just huge but delicious. My mum bought a few packets of burgers for supper. Ramlee Burger. omg. Its the best burger I've ever had in my life. A chicken/beef patty with black pepper sauce, chilli sauce, cabbages, tomatoes, cucumber and toasted bun bread spread with margarine. Ahhhhh...... and guess what? Its cheap too! RM.2.50 per burger.

Chicken burger down. Beef burger is next!

How could you resist this?????

Indulging my food....

Gone.

25 April 2008, Tuesday.

Finally I manage to find the time to blog. (but actually im dont) Anyway, I'll make this post as short as possible. Everyone was so nervous with the debate. Everyone as in the teachers and the debaters(including myself). I, was the Madame Speaker for the day will be conducting the whole process of the debate. That includes, greeting everyone, introducing the adjudicators, debaters, time keepers and ofcourse myself as Madame Speaker. Then, we have to state the rules and guidelines of the the debate which Im very sure that everyone knows abt it already. Besides that, we have to announce the result and the best speaker award.

The debate started at abt 9.20 when 2 representative from both parties will have to do the coin toss. or in other words, toin coss. now, all of us debaters kept saying toin coss just because one of us accidentally said toin coss. lol.. anyway, our school had the choice to choose which side we wanted. The Government team or The Opposition Team. Therefore, we chose the Opposition. Anyway, the topic for the debate is..
"This House Believes that Geriatric Care Should Be The Responsibility of The Family"
Therefore, we the opposition team rejects the motion for today debate.
It may look that we're on the losing side and the topic seems bias.
But, we're actually strong on both sides. seriously. We've prepared thoroughly.

After the coin toss, both team were brought to "The Quarantine Room" lol.. sound like we're some kind of mutants or radioactive creatures. Anyway, during the quarantine period which is 1 hour, I, as Madame speaker(cheh) have to find out from the registration table for the debaters names and write them down. Most importantly, I don't want to pronounce their names wrongly and end up making myself a laughing stock. haha.

1 hour later.....

The debate begins.
everyone took their places.


I. as madame speaker again, XD started the debate with the greetings. lol..

Our opponents

I now call upon the 1st speaker of the government team to present his case. I didn't have his picture since I was not the photographer. Jhun Ren was the photographer fot that day. He was not that good but ok-lah. He was walking round and round the floor. It was so noticeable that I did not concentrate on what he has to say as it was really obvious. Our team kept giving POI's.
Nothing much on the 1st speaker.

Next, I call upon Dinnish Raj the 1st speaker of the opposition team to present his speech.

Dinnish voice is very clear, sharp and strong. He speaks using British accent a little. XD he hadles the POI's really well. One of the opponents POI was rubbish. >.< onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://bp0.blogger.com/_fv9zHLlfkqU/R_htlC2iPiI/AAAAAAAABPw/S33xANAis3E/s1600-h/P1010181.JPG">She was quite alright though she was shaking throughout the debate. Well, I know how it feels coz I shake too while giving my speech during debate practice. She mentioned something that shouldn't be mentioned at all. we anticipated that already. It goes something like this :

Even though the elderly people are sent to the geriatric care centre, they are still the responsibility of the family as the family still provide them with financial aid and paying for the expenses during their stay at the geriatric home. They are given the choice whether to stay with their family or being at a geriatric care centre.

POI!!
POI!!!
Dinnish and Vinaya wanted to POI. both at the same time. But Dinnish gave his POI instead.

How could you say that even by putting the old folk in the geriatric care centre is still in the hands of the family?? are you saying that you're agreeing to us??

well, thats not the end of it.

Next, I call upon Vinayakraj to present his case.

Vinaya rebutted the 2nd speaker of the govt team saying that "Even though the elderly people are sent to the geriatric care centre, they are still the responsibility of the family as the family still provide them with financial aid and paying for the expenses during their stay at the geriatric home. They are given the choice whether to stay with their family or being at a geriatric care centre."

How could you say that by putting them in the care centre is still in the hands of the family?? If by putting them in the geriatric home is still in the hands of the family, then WHAT is not the responsibility of the family???

lol... I'm pretty sure that they're a little shaken already. and guess what? we already knew that they are going to say that.

Let us now listen to the 3rd speaker of the government team to present her rebuttles.

She was a really nice person. omg... i almost fell for what she has to say. she was quite good. but shaz was still better.

Last but not least, let us hear mohd Shazmiq, the third speaker to present his rebuttles.




Shaz rebutting.
He rebutted what we have said before but now with full force.

How could you say that by putting them in the care centre is still in the hands of the family?? If by putting them in the geriatric home is still in the hands of the family, then WHAT is not the responsibility of the family??? My worthy opponents, if everything is in the hands of the family, then why are we here debating abt this topic?? If that is the situation, then there is no use debating today as everything is in the hands of the family.
The motion for today states that Geriatric care should be the responsibility of the family. and you as the government team solely have to say that the responsibility is in hands of the family. I think it is time that m,y worthy opponents rethink abt their stand and definition of todays debate.

LOL.... thats a HUGE slap in the face.

ok..im kinda tired of tying now actually..so, i'll just post some pictures here...

Vinaya doing his reply speech.





Judging by our faces, ofcourse we won the debate. Yes, we won the debate!! and...... the best speaker is our very own


Shaz. He won the best speaker twice. XD

Congrats everyone and including myself. wheeeee!!!

Before the debate...... this is what we're doing....
camwhoring and doing stupid things.

Coconut head. Looking for inspiration to come...

Vinaya has gone mad. and pretend that shaz's butt wasn't there.








practicing his facial expression

We work on Macs/Apple. XD its not a macbook but its a old apple..lol.. still cool anyway.


i guess thats all for now. I'm really tired..

Madame Speaker

Finally! Exams are over!
Honestly, I don't think I'll do well in this exam for the first time ever because... for the first time ever I'm actually doing last minute studying. XD As in studying the night before the exam. I screwed up in Add Maths for the first time ever. I only answered 5 out of 9 questions. ish.

Papers like English and EST, I finished them in 20 minutes. So, I spent 40 minutes sleeping in class. -.-" whats wrong with me..... I don't usually sleep in class. Especially during exams.

Ah well, I've already got my maths paper. I got an A1/80 for it. ^^ Well, all I'm afraid now is being in school on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The reason is : Almost the whole class screwed up their Add Maths. Sooooo, as USUAL we'll definitely face the music/rotan. Its really scary, seriously... omg.. help me...

Anyway, the next debate competition will be held in our school. Its a tough one this time. Not easy at all. I'll be the Madame Speaker for the day. *ahem*

Overall, this are okay though there was a few surprises.
Hmmm... stay tuned for my next post.

My intentions for tonight is to have a pleasant time on my own without any disturbance. It only lasted untill 11.20p.m and now its 11.32 pm. I've been listening to the same thing every single day and its making sick and tired of it. Its draining my energy away. In addition, I'm having pms. I might not be thinking straight right now. ugh. I get irritated easily this week as it is also an exam week.

I need to make things clear. Its really disturbing me right now. I feel extremely tired. Tired to laugh, to watch tv, to listen to songs that makes me alive, to study with concentration and the list goes on.

I am 10cm away from getting pissed off.

There goes my mood to blog.

I love my phone

All i feel like doing now is drown myself with songs....
Yeah... singing songs after songs... It makes me feel much better...
I went to tuition today... It was ok-lah.. only 6 out od 20 ppl turned up. XD
Anyway, picture of the week...

This is what happens when my goes berserk.. =.="

Even though my phone is like this sometimes, I still love my phone... =). Im not planning to sell it after getting a new one as it wont worth that much. I shall keep it as a spare when i get a new one. I've been using this particular phone for 3 years already. Ahhh... A lot of memories with this phone.... =D Tak sampai hate to throw it away or to change a new one.
I've dropped it countless times
Soaked it in a pail of water. Not on purpose of course.
Got soap all over it. =.=" i can't remember how.
It wakes me up every morning to school for the past 3 years. It never let me down. If it did, its probably my fault for turning off the alarm. XD
etcetc....
Even though its not a 3G or has bluetooth or whatsoever thing in this phones compared to other latest phones, I appreciate whatever I have.

The only reason why I'm still sticking onto this phone is my uncle... Last month, he called me personally and talked to me and that time, he offered me a deal. Hmm... How can i say it... A promise? I dont know... However, I agreed with him.

The question that is bugging me now is can I do it??? I'm sure you people might be wondering whats the deal/agreement/promise. Ok.. here it is.. If I... NONO..
WHEN..... I get all straight A's for my SPM, He will get me a phone of my choice.
I was @.@ wow... The first thing in my mind was an iphone and then comes other choices.
Well, I'll only be getting it when my SPM results is out next year...
Ah well, see how it goes... To wait or not to wait...
Anyway.....

I still love you my phone! ^^

But whatever happens, I'm enjoying myself for now although I feel like this now -----> @.@
I start singing and dancing to whatever songs i hear.

For sometime now, i felt a feeling from somewhere bugging me but not from me. I don't know what and how to react with it. I need my own space to breathe....

Im so dead... I have not study anything for my exams.

Debate Competition.

Chairman of the Debate

• Addressed as “Mr Chairman”
• Acts as Speaker of the House, calls on speakers to speak, decides disputes and keeps order
• If the Chairman rings the bell, all Members of the House except the current speaker must resume their seats
• If the Chairman stands, the current speaker must resume his seat.

Other etiquette
• Only one Member of the House may be on his feet at one time; therefore a speaker should sit down on giving way to an interruption or when the Chairman stands
• Cries of “Hear! Hear!” (in agreement) or “Shame!” (in disagreement), and “Order!” (to draw a speaker’s attention to a Member of the House wishing to raise a point, who he has not seen), are permitted but do not overdo it
• Booing or hissing are never acceptable
• Do not refer to another Member by name; use forms of address such as “The Honourable Member from [name of University]” or “The Honourable Proposer/Opposer”.

Time Limits on Speeches
• Must not exceed 8 minutes
• Time signals: 1, 7 and 8-minute intervals.

Defining the Motion
• The Government team defines the motion
• The definition should be reasonable, and clearly and logically linked to the motion and subsequent lines of argument.

No New Matter
• A team may not introduce any new matter after its second speech
• An argument or material is new matter unless:
- it has been previously used in the Debate; or
- it is introduced to rebut or reply to an argument or material previously introduced.

Points of Information
• A “Point of Information” in an interjection which raises a point of importance or is intended to correct a debater
• The Speaker has absolute discretion whether or not to yield to a Member of the House (which includes any members of the floor) who proposes point of information
• No Point of Information may exceed 15 seconds
• No Points of Information are permitted during the 1st or final minute of a speech. (There will be time signals at 1-minute and 7-minute intervals).
• Anyone (other than a speaker from the same side as the speaker making the speech ) may offer a point of information
• A Point of Information is offered by a Member of the House by standing and putting a hand on his or her head otherwise indicating his or her intention.
• A speaker is not obliged to accept any Point of Information. However, continual refusal of proposed Point of Information, or on the other hand, numerous acceptances of Points of Information which adversely affect the speaker’s substantive speech may be regarded unfavourably in the assessment of his or her performance. It is recommended that approximately 2 points of information be accepted in a speech but there is no hard or fast rule.

*****

All the rules stated above was just a short and brief description abt the debate rules. As you know, in every debate, you must have :

  1. Your stand
  2. Definition of the topic
  3. Your arguments/points(thats for sure)
  4. Point of information (POI)
  5. Rebuttles
  6. Reply Speech by the 1st/2nd speaker
The 1st speaker
Specify out Stand, Definition of the topic, rebuttles(if ur in the opposition team) and argument/point No.1

2nd Speaker
Refude/accepts opposition's definition. Rebut on 1st or/and 2nd speaker on either sides, present argument no.2 and no.3 and then re-affirm stand.

3rd speaker
Usually the powerful person in the team. He/She will be rubutting all the points/arguments presented by the opponents and re-affirm stand.

The topic of our debate is given 1 or is it 2 weeks earlier before the real competition begins. WE, HAVE to prepare everything for BOTH SIDES, government and opposition side. You do the math how many speeches you'll have to prepare.

Now, back to the debate competition chronology. We've been practising and practising and practising almost everyday in school. During school hours and after school. Its very stressful going in and out of the class every single day when your mind is concentrating on both studies and debate. The only classes I would never wanna miss is during Maths, Add Maths, Physics, Biology and Chemistry as all of these subjects are very important to me. I'm not saying that other subjects are not important. BUT! those other subjects can be done at home and its easy to catch up with them. All these has been going on for almost a month. Now, this thing called "debate" has been glued to my brain. Everyday i wake up, all i can think of is debate..debate..debate..debate.... -.-"

Debating is not easy. It takes up a lot of my time. and when i say a lot mean A LOT! We have to do a lot of research, extract the information and write them down into sentences. We have to prepare so many speeches both for opposition and government side. ughhh... Its frustrating.. After writing the speeches, we'll have to read them out and memorize them and if possible, do it impromptu.


Preparing their speeches. Left-right : Dinish, Dinie on the Mac, Shaz


Shaz rebutting with FIRE.

You know, debating is not as boring and as serious as you people imagine. Its fun, challenging and exciting when you put your heart into it. Well, we are serious when we have to. But most of the time, all of us will be joking, laughing and playing around during our discussions. Its also fun because we get to skip boring classes. =X Anyway, I'll fast forward my post since some people are bugging me when am i finishing. XD be patient....

One more thing i remember.. All of us have to travel all the way to Empress Hotel, in Sepang just to do our debate discussion after school from 2.30p.m untill 10p.m. It was fun and extremely tiring. Imagine being away from home from 6a.m untill 10p.m. 15 freaking hours!!! Well, we did had fun there. I took some pictures but it was deleted due to some problem of my memory card. So, the pictures were deleted and the best part is, I have a video on vinaya and dinie singing the Lollipop song by Mika. well if you don't know how the song goes like. go check it out at imeem. Yeah, they sang exactly like Mika or in other words like girls. XD Too bad the video was also deleted. it was really hilarious.

One day before our debate competition, we worked our head off! All of us skipped all of our classes.

Shaz and I

Dinnish and Dinie

Vinaya. This is what happens when you have 8 speeches to write.

The debate competition was on the 3rd of March at SMK Taman _____. We have 2 debate topics to prepare because both rounds will be held on the same day. The 1st topic is "parents and not the predators are the real villains behind child abduction" 2nd topic is "Owning a car TODAY is a bane not a boon"

The 3rd of March 2008.
The day we'll be facing our worth opponents. Muahahaha!! We're so ready!

When we reached the school, our first impressions were.. "wow..this school is huge..." Then, we went to the school library. We met our opponents there for the first time. Well, technically not for the 1st time as some of us and myself recognise our opponents since some of us are friends/ ex-schoolmates. One thing i hate abt their Library is that theres too many mosquitoes!!! And before we entered the library, there a huge sign saYing "HAPUSKAN DENGGI/NYAMUK AEDES"
We heard some of the ppl from other school insulted our school saying that "aiyah...

In the library, they flipped the coin to determine which side are we in. So, our school got to choose which side we wanted. Ofcourse! we choose the government team saying that parents are the real villains behind child abduction. It may seem hard but its actually easier for us.
Then, our debaters were quarantined in a room for 1 hour. As for me, i wasn't in the quarantine room. I was worried, nervous and kept looking at the time. So, while waiting for them, i went to the school canteen and i saw some cats. I looked at then and they looked at me. then i start playing with it. and no, i did not touch them.

When the debate starts, my hands and finger were freezing cold. I think Im making my friends nervous instead of telling them to be calm.




Before the debate starts...

XD Katuri, our 1st speaker presented her speech. It was very good. The 1st speaker of the opposition side wasn't that good. and he couldn't answer a POI. He said, "My team members will answer that later" omg.. thats bad... really bad... you're not supposed to do that if you wanna win...
Next, vinaya came up are smash their points and suddenly... "POI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" a girl shouted. I was stunned. omg..



Vinaya's temper was heating up.

the 2nd speaker of the opposition presented his speech and all of us felt bad for him because there was so many announcement at that moment and we couldn't really hear what he has to say. Another reason is the unreliable time keepers. They are supposed to ring the bell on the 1st and 7th minute. But, they kept ringing the bell every 1 minute! Aren't you people supposed to know that earlier!!?!?!! and he was rushing with speech as he thought it was almost time.

Now.... comes the 3rd speaker, Shamiq. aiyak..i forgot to take his picture.. nvm..
As many of you people know him, he loves sleepy and loves joking around. But on that day, he was a different person. a TOTALLY different person. He was smashing our opponents arguments like pancakes!
The 3rd speaker of the opposition, who was a girl came up and started her speech quite well. But a few things i dont really like about her is that she keeps saying "helooooo?" in a very you know like in those movies, the bad girls attitude. and on top of that, she was twisting her body and swing her hands at the same time.. we were like... O.O uhhh... and she was very rude. She insulted shazmiq. thats mean. Not good for debate. Its ok tob e sarcastic but dont be rude.

Well, after everything was over.. The adjudicators were calculating the marks and presented the results to the speaker to announce the winner of Round 1. Our hearts were pounding like a running horse. I felt a chill for a moment. The results is determine which word the adjudicators circled. GOVERNMENT...... or... OPPOSITION.

"Therefore I would like to announce that this house....... ACCEPTS the motion that parents are the real villain behind child abduction!"

WoooHOOOOoooooooooooooo!!! We won!!!!!!! *claps*!!!
That is not it... One of our speaker, shazmiq(3rd speaker) won the "best speaker award"
Now, thats a bonus!!! Muahahahaha!!!!

Ok, lets fast forward to the 2nd round...

This time, the debate was help in an air-conditioned computer room. =)
this time, we're debating with the host of the competiton which was SMK__X___
And again, they flipped the coin and out opponents gets to choose which side they want.
They choose opposition saying that owning a car today is a boon(blessing/good) not a bane(curse/bad). Hm... and again it might seem we're on a losing side. But now, we were so prepared for it as we wanted the government side. In addition, there was a Caucasian guy came out from nowhere. All of us saw him being there and our expressions were like "shite...... this is gonna be tough" Most of us almost panicked and we were worried sick. OMG....
And again they were quarantined for 1 hour. While waiting, I was in the computer room waiting for it to start.
*drumrolls*
The debate started with our 1st speaker, Dinnish, who is only A form 3 student but his voice and tone is very clear.

Dinnish
This is when he was answering The POI presented by our opponents.

He handled the POI really well although the POI was not clear at all. She was asking a POI that goes like this "Who benefits from all these things????". Out of the blue that question came out. Dinnish answered "We are not talking about who benifit fromThe speakers of SMK X suck big time. They can't speak proper/simple english, pronunciation is horrible, all of us couldn't understand what in the world is he and she saying and their general knowledge is very weak!!
my gawd!!! How on earth they won the 1st round???? All of us were wondering did the other school that they were debating with is far more worse???
Moreover, they don't remember the rules of the debate.

After dinnish answered the POI, the 1st speaker of the opposition jumped out of her seat and presented him with another question without saying

"POI please"

and dinnish shut her off by saying
" I'm afraid I've already answered your POI" wat the heck....

Next, 1st speaker of the opposition team came up and presented her speech. She did not specify the definition of the topic. Thats a huge mistake and we did not realise it. We couldn't understand what is she trying to say.

She pronounced the word "vehicle" wrongly.. She pronounced it as "vecycle", "ver-hike-kle", "ver-high-kle"... yeah.. "ver-high-kle", she repeated. Everyone in the room laughed at her. Seriously la... How can a debater do not know how to pronounce properly??? When she was rebutting vinaya's points, she was halfway discussing what she wants to say with her team members during the 8-minute speech. haih.... another bad sign. Next, her speech was too short untill theres nothing to POI or rebut. It was only 4 minutes!! what can we rebut??? Dinnish, vinaya and dinie were so engross and waiting to rebut. But it was too short and they were shocked. Infact, all of us were.

That.... is where we know that we're going to win for sure.

Next, vinaya gave his speech. After saying a few lines.....

2nd speaker opposition
"POI please!!!"

WTH?!?!?!?!
Vinaya
I'm sorry, but i'm afraid its not time for POI yet"

she was so embarrassed and apologised. Another bad thing to do. Then she asked for another POI.

2nd speaker opposition
"You said that, a car causes spousal discontentment right??? right???? How can you say that a car causes spousal discontentment??"

Vinaya
AS i said before, i quote an example that when a lady is driving, the man will always criticise the lady at their driving skills, why go through all these just because of a car??"

she continued saying that
"no..thats not what i meant.. i was saying that...imagine if your wife GIVE A BIRTH suddenly and you don't have a car to..."

Vi cut her off by saying
Im afraid you did not say POI so, therefore DENIED!!!

XDXDXD damn hilarious la....
GIve a birth??? whaaaat english is that????? Im starting to laugh harder and harder along with kasturi beside me. XDXDXD how can you ask a questin saying... right???...right??? This clearly shows shes not sure whats shes saying. Moreover, she did not re-affirm her stand before she ended her speech.

Now, our 2rd speaker, Dinie, who was so nervous, worried and scared felt the POWER and FIRE in him as he stomped them! He came up with a rebuttle saying that


Dinie
Did you know, Amsterdam is a car-free state and also a man sold his car that he had saved $65000 without it?"

3rd speaker of the opposition
"POI!! Where did you get your facts saying that Amsterdam was a car-free state??"

Dinie
We got our source from www.wikipedia.com.

I think there was more things here but this is as far as i could remember.

After that, came the 3rd speaker of the opposition team. He look as if he owns everyone of us. I feel like giving him a slap or a punch on his face. kasturi told teacher :

"teacher, better watch out for this guy... he look so confident"
"Nolah... I doubt he can do it"

Turns out, teacher was right.. he was the worst of the worst. He started his greetings too fast like a machine gun. Then he posted a question

Does anyone here owns a car???
Tell me, How many of you drive to school to reach here??
*pauses as if he was waiting for an answer*
A car is a necessity and everyone must have a car.
If we dont own a car today, no one will respect us.
Take for example, our county's economy depends on the production of cars and other countries will look down on us if we do not own a car and therefore we will be put to shame! So, by not having a car, our country will not be respected

POI!!!! (he accepts the POI)
How can you say that?? Tell me, who would you respect, a country with bullet trains, tube systems, tramps, etc or a country with people owning a cars that will only pollute the environment and if Amsterdam can live without a car, WHY CAN'T WE???

He couldnt answer that POI. haha!! In your face!! THE AUDIENCE AND ADJUDICATORS WERE IMPRESSED!
The he continued

The government team also mentioned that a car causes traffic jams. do you know that you can hear the traffic news on the radio and you can also listen to songs on the radio?

POI!!
Have you ever heard some creations called the ipod or the mp3 player???

He answered, Why do you need those stuffs if you have a radio in you car???!

WHAT THE HECK!!!! what crap are you talking?!?!!!! XDXDXDXDXD I cant stop laughing!!

He continued again, this time he asked the audience,
how many of you here in this room know that Amsterdam is a car-free state???
Who knows where is Amsterdam. Its not a famous country.
If Amsterdam is a car-free country, how can a person travel from one state to another???

POI again!!
We said that Amsterdam is a car-free state but NOT a BUS-FREE, PLANE-FREE, TRAMP-FREE, TRAIN-FREE OR PUBLIC-TRANSPORT FREE STATE! Even without a car you still can travel through these things!

I couldn't stop laughing till tears roll down to my cheeks. Joker la that guy.

Then he continued. but halfway through,
POI!!!!

He said,(pointing fingers with peace sign)
I've already answered 2 POI's So, i dont want to take anymore!

POI!!!

(pointing fingers at us)
How many times I wanna tell yah, I've already take 2 POI's. So stop giving more POI's

HAHA! Bang! he was shot dead in the head!

Whhat la.... I thought this debate was going to be more harder but it turned out to be a joke.!
Who wants to hear the radio in the car when you have an ipod or mp3 player?? and if you dont have any of those, who would pay attention to it when your concentrating more on the road?? XD
Why would people look down on other if you dont have a car?? ISHISHISH.
and he's damn rude la... english also tak betul.

Finally, the reply speech.... Vinaya crushed the opposition into pieces. Muahahaha!!! Look at this picture..

That ends with a huge and loud bang!
Muahahahah!!!

We beat the flat!!!
HOnestly i tell you, the 2nd round of debate was so crappy.... the previous school that lost to us were 50X better than SMK X. Anyway, we won obviously.
Another bonus!
The "best speaker award" was awarded to Vinaya.

Congratulations to everyone!! Everyone had the FIRE and CONFIDENCE on that day!
It was fun.. and now.. I shall rest my case....
Till next time..








Eat and Stress

What a looong week for me. Seriously! Even today, I have to attend school. =.=" As usual, the attendance on Saturdays are always very poor. It has been an extremely week for me.
Preparation for Debate, Debate Competition again an extremely well-known school which I would not mention, Being Madame Speaker of the Debate, a lot of nagging, polishing coconuts and so on. There was some disappointments but at the end of the day, I would say I really enjoyed myself.

Monday, 24 March

I rise from bed as usual at 6.00a.m sharp. I would always tell myself, "I wish i could sleep longer.... ughh..." I went to school by a mini school bus which can be considered as a rare species on the road nowdays. Do you know? I watch Tamil Drama Series every morning at 6.50a.m without the subtitles. Being in the bus half awake, there was 2 indian guys who always sits in front of me. I'm telling you that they just can't stop talking or shall I put in a rude way, They can't shut up. If they are talking, its fine. But the way they're talking is like they're arguing with each other! omg.... I'm going through this every morning.

When I reached school, I'll settle down on my usual spot, the canteen while waiting for the bell to ring with my friends. School starts a little earlier today as there was a few programmes such as, The ex-Form 5 students who scored straight A's in their SPM and they're invited to give us a talk on "How Do They Do It!?"

We had our Debate discussion almost everyday but today, 4 of us (Vi, Shaz, Kasturi and I) were given the permission to miss all classes for today and tomorrow. Ji Mi and the others joined us for our debate discussion. You know..... Evrytime when we're having our discussions, we MUST do something that has nothing to do with the debate. Its our way of having fun. This time, we made fun of Ji Mi's hair.... PS: sorry, Ji Mi for posting this but I have to... XD I realised a few guys love having long hair. Take for example, Ji Mi and Shaz. XD

Shaz and Vinaya kept telling me that,
" Deniseeeee, I want long hair!!! Can I cut your hair and grow it on my head????"
Omg.... SWT!!! NO........ You'll never have my hair.
"But why....................?"
=.="
and when i say I wanna cut my hair they kept telling me,
"Nooooooo, DONT CUT YOUR HAIR!!!!. I DONT WANT IT TO BE SHORT!!!"
=.=" omg guys, Im just cutting it shorter but not short.

Ok, this is what you get when you have long hair.

Hmmmmm.... I wonder how my hair looks like....


Cheese!

Hairstylist : Miss Denise Tan
Client/ Model : Ji Mi Yeow

I couldn't help it....... Its really long and I have to tie it up to see how does it look like. Anyways, after styling his hair, my hands smells like shampoo. *sniffsniff*
Heyyyy..... You're using Pantene!!!
Yeahh.. How do you know??
You hair and my hand smells like Pantene.

Our Debate discussion lasted the whole day until 2.30. We manage to finish up everything in time and it is time for LUNCH! My favorite time of the day. We (shaz, vinaya, jhun ren and I) head down to Pasar Kuala Ampang to have our lunch. I could say that there are a lot of delicious food here such as fried rice, nasi lemak, pan meen, yee meen, wantan mee and the list goes on. I ordered myself a pot of yee meen and a glass of Teh Ice. Honestly, I don't really fancy eating mee/ noodles exept this particular one.

I know, Its empty coz I ate it all. If you're wondering why theres a tissue on the spoon, its because my spoon accidentally slipped and fell into the soup. =.="

After finishing a bowl of that and my drinks, I was still not full. O.O I don't know whats wrong with me but I have a huge appetite for 1 week already. I have to say that its most probably my PMS or I'm just eating a lot.




Now that..... is my 5th bowl of yee meen. @.@ I know........ theres something wrong with me. People always say that I'm very skinny. I accept the fact I am... Thats why I'm eating a lot. However, no matter how much i eat, I just can't gain weight. The only time I gained some weight is after I had my meal and my weight will increase by 1 kg and after 4 hours, it goes back to normal. XDXD

HEHE. Actually, It wasn't my 5th bowl. Incase you didn't notice, there was only 4 of us eating lunch. Therefore, that's my 2nd bowl. They guys were, Denise... are you okay???? XD I think so...

Poser....

Vinaya and Jhun Ren eating and talking abt games as usual, Cabal, the new online game which is better than Dota in terms of graphics. I think.

As for the both of us, we kept eating and eating.

Vi is still hungry....

Satisfied people after having their meals.
Wait, I do have one picture on someone after having an elephant for dinner. XD But, I don't think its such a good Idea to post it. Unless you people are requesting for it.

After eating, all of us decided to head home. Shaz, Jhun Ren and I ad to walk home. All of us were dead beat and hot!! We took a detour into Ampang Point since JR said he wanna get some ice cream and also belanja us!! whee....

He got me a Chocotop, Shaz a chocolate milkshake and a lime flavored sundae for himself.

omg. I look weird. Shaz look.... high?XD

Shaz walked home alone after that. JR and I walked home since we live at the same place. When I got home, I found 2 boxes of Dominoes Pizza.

@.@

I was wondering..... Who called pizza??? No one is at home except for the maid and ellise is in school. So, I started asking my maid whom I call her "Kak/Kakak" I speak with her in BM and shes the only person I speak BM with nowadays.

Kak, Who ordered the pizza???
Dunno.... someone sent it.
Did you call??? (why did i even ask this question coz she doesn't know how how to read or make a phone call to other ppl besides my parents)
No.... I didn't call anyone.
Then how come there 2 boxes of pizza here if no one ordered it??? *starts to wonder and feel weird*
I don't know....
Did you pay for those???????
No, i did not. They said it was already paid for.
Har?!! Whaat??? okok.. tell me what happened... everything!
Ok... The delivery man came, and handed me 2 boxes of the pizza. So I told him that I didn't ordered any pizza. He said that yes, you did ordered it and you address is ....... Then I said yeah, thats the address but i don't have any money to pay fir and I did not ordered it. He said, Nonono, its the right house and its okay, you dont have to pay for it since its already paid and here's your pizza. Then I told him, nononono, I dont want to accept it. but finally i accepted it.
Ohhhhhhh..... Weirdddd..... Who ordered it????


I kept asking her again and again. I opened up the box and see what is in it. Aloha Chicken! my fav! I'm starting to think that I got a secret admirer who just sent me 2 box of pizza. XDXD JOKING!! I was too curious to find out who ordered it, I picked up my house phone and called the number plastered on the pizza box.

*tuuuut tuuut* x 6
no one answered.
i tried again and they said that the number I've dialed is not in service.

Fine, I called dominoes instead. So, the usual protocol, they asked what did i want to order,
I told them,

No thank you but I would like to tell you that I've received 2 boxes of regular pizza, Aloha Chicken that I did not order.
and the conversation goes on....

My maid wouldn't allow me to eat the pizza as she thought it could be poisonous and someone might wanna kill us. XD Then, Dominoes called again and told me that,

There was a old lady came to Dominoes pizza, Ampang Point Branch, ordered the pizza, paid for it and asked them to deliver it to my address.
When i heard them saying that, I was like... omg...... why would an old lady do that? hmmm.... Thats extremely nice of her!! Then, I received another phone call.

Hello...
Hi Denise, did you receive the pizza??? 2 boxes of them I bought for all of you to eat..
HI aunty!!!! *i could recognise her voice =)* Ohhhhhhhhh.... so you're the one who sent the pizza!~ Thank you very very much!!!! I didn't know it was you. The maid and I was wondering who sent it and we didnt dare to eat it at all.
Ohhh..... Its for all of you to eat for lunch actually.... I hope you like it.
We really love it. Thank you very very much again! Sorry to trouble you aunty....
no lah... dont worry abt it... enjoy the food ar.. take care.. byeee
Ok..take care too byee...

@.@ thats really sweet of her. But, I couldn't eat anymore that time. I told my maid that I would bring to school and eat the next day. Sometimes, I feel really sad for my aunty as she's quite lonely. Not to say that shes all alone la but I could see that she needs someone to talk to.

At night, I had a huge dinner. Not just huge but delicious. My mum bought a few packets of burgers for supper. Ramlee Burger. omg. Its the best burger I've ever had in my life. A chicken/beef patty with black pepper sauce, chilli sauce, cabbages, tomatoes, cucumber and toasted bun bread spread with margarine. Ahhhhh...... and guess what? Its cheap too! RM.2.50 per burger.

Chicken burger down. Beef burger is next!

How could you resist this?????

Indulging my food....

Gone.

25 April 2008, Tuesday.

Finally I manage to find the time to blog. (but actually im dont) Anyway, I'll make this post as short as possible. Everyone was so nervous with the debate. Everyone as in the teachers and the debaters(including myself). I, was the Madame Speaker for the day will be conducting the whole process of the debate. That includes, greeting everyone, introducing the adjudicators, debaters, time keepers and ofcourse myself as Madame Speaker. Then, we have to state the rules and guidelines of the the debate which Im very sure that everyone knows abt it already. Besides that, we have to announce the result and the best speaker award.

The debate started at abt 9.20 when 2 representative from both parties will have to do the coin toss. or in other words, toin coss. now, all of us debaters kept saying toin coss just because one of us accidentally said toin coss. lol.. anyway, our school had the choice to choose which side we wanted. The Government team or The Opposition Team. Therefore, we chose the Opposition. Anyway, the topic for the debate is..
"This House Believes that Geriatric Care Should Be The Responsibility of The Family"
Therefore, we the opposition team rejects the motion for today debate.
It may look that we're on the losing side and the topic seems bias.
But, we're actually strong on both sides. seriously. We've prepared thoroughly.

After the coin toss, both team were brought to "The Quarantine Room" lol.. sound like we're some kind of mutants or radioactive creatures. Anyway, during the quarantine period which is 1 hour, I, as Madame speaker(cheh) have to find out from the registration table for the debaters names and write them down. Most importantly, I don't want to pronounce their names wrongly and end up making myself a laughing stock. haha.

1 hour later.....

The debate begins.
everyone took their places.


I. as madame speaker again, XD started the debate with the greetings. lol..

Our opponents

I now call upon the 1st speaker of the government team to present his case. I didn't have his picture since I was not the photographer. Jhun Ren was the photographer fot that day. He was not that good but ok-lah. He was walking round and round the floor. It was so noticeable that I did not concentrate on what he has to say as it was really obvious. Our team kept giving POI's.
Nothing much on the 1st speaker.

Next, I call upon Dinnish Raj the 1st speaker of the opposition team to present his speech.

Dinnish voice is very clear, sharp and strong. He speaks using British accent a little. XD he hadles the POI's really well. One of the opponents POI was rubbish. >.< onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://bp0.blogger.com/_fv9zHLlfkqU/R_htlC2iPiI/AAAAAAAABPw/S33xANAis3E/s1600-h/P1010181.JPG">She was quite alright though she was shaking throughout the debate. Well, I know how it feels coz I shake too while giving my speech during debate practice. She mentioned something that shouldn't be mentioned at all. we anticipated that already. It goes something like this :

Even though the elderly people are sent to the geriatric care centre, they are still the responsibility of the family as the family still provide them with financial aid and paying for the expenses during their stay at the geriatric home. They are given the choice whether to stay with their family or being at a geriatric care centre.

POI!!
POI!!!
Dinnish and Vinaya wanted to POI. both at the same time. But Dinnish gave his POI instead.

How could you say that even by putting the old folk in the geriatric care centre is still in the hands of the family?? are you saying that you're agreeing to us??

well, thats not the end of it.

Next, I call upon Vinayakraj to present his case.

Vinaya rebutted the 2nd speaker of the govt team saying that "Even though the elderly people are sent to the geriatric care centre, they are still the responsibility of the family as the family still provide them with financial aid and paying for the expenses during their stay at the geriatric home. They are given the choice whether to stay with their family or being at a geriatric care centre."

How could you say that by putting them in the care centre is still in the hands of the family?? If by putting them in the geriatric home is still in the hands of the family, then WHAT is not the responsibility of the family???

lol... I'm pretty sure that they're a little shaken already. and guess what? we already knew that they are going to say that.

Let us now listen to the 3rd speaker of the government team to present her rebuttles.

She was a really nice person. omg... i almost fell for what she has to say. she was quite good. but shaz was still better.

Last but not least, let us hear mohd Shazmiq, the third speaker to present his rebuttles.




Shaz rebutting.
He rebutted what we have said before but now with full force.

How could you say that by putting them in the care centre is still in the hands of the family?? If by putting them in the geriatric home is still in the hands of the family, then WHAT is not the responsibility of the family??? My worthy opponents, if everything is in the hands of the family, then why are we here debating abt this topic?? If that is the situation, then there is no use debating today as everything is in the hands of the family.
The motion for today states that Geriatric care should be the responsibility of the family. and you as the government team solely have to say that the responsibility is in hands of the family. I think it is time that m,y worthy opponents rethink abt their stand and definition of todays debate.

LOL.... thats a HUGE slap in the face.

ok..im kinda tired of tying now actually..so, i'll just post some pictures here...

Vinaya doing his reply speech.





Judging by our faces, ofcourse we won the debate. Yes, we won the debate!! and...... the best speaker is our very own


Shaz. He won the best speaker twice. XD

Congrats everyone and including myself. wheeeee!!!

Before the debate...... this is what we're doing....
camwhoring and doing stupid things.

Coconut head. Looking for inspiration to come...

Vinaya has gone mad. and pretend that shaz's butt wasn't there.








practicing his facial expression

We work on Macs/Apple. XD its not a macbook but its a old apple..lol.. still cool anyway.


i guess thats all for now. I'm really tired..
My next update will be on my eating appetite and most importantly...
DEBATE. @.@
A few other things also happened.. Well, i'll try to slot in some of them if I have the time and strength to do so.
Stay tuned.....

Madame Speaker

Finally! Exams are over!
Honestly, I don't think I'll do well in this exam for the first time ever because... for the first time ever I'm actually doing last minute studying. XD As in studying the night before the exam. I screwed up in Add Maths for the first time ever. I only answered 5 out of 9 questions. ish.

Papers like English and EST, I finished them in 20 minutes. So, I spent 40 minutes sleeping in class. -.-" whats wrong with me..... I don't usually sleep in class. Especially during exams.

Ah well, I've already got my maths paper. I got an A1/80 for it. ^^ Well, all I'm afraid now is being in school on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The reason is : Almost the whole class screwed up their Add Maths. Sooooo, as USUAL we'll definitely face the music/rotan. Its really scary, seriously... omg.. help me...

Anyway, the next debate competition will be held in our school. Its a tough one this time. Not easy at all. I'll be the Madame Speaker for the day. *ahem*

Overall, this are okay though there was a few surprises.
Hmmm... stay tuned for my next post.

My intentions for tonight is to have a pleasant time on my own without any disturbance. It only lasted untill 11.20p.m and now its 11.32 pm. I've been listening to the same thing every single day and its making sick and tired of it. Its draining my energy away. In addition, I'm having pms. I might not be thinking straight right now. ugh. I get irritated easily this week as it is also an exam week.

I need to make things clear. Its really disturbing me right now. I feel extremely tired. Tired to laugh, to watch tv, to listen to songs that makes me alive, to study with concentration and the list goes on.

I am 10cm away from getting pissed off.

There goes my mood to blog.
I feel really annoyed.
ugh.
I may blow up anytime.

I love my phone

All i feel like doing now is drown myself with songs....
Yeah... singing songs after songs... It makes me feel much better...
I went to tuition today... It was ok-lah.. only 6 out od 20 ppl turned up. XD
Anyway, picture of the week...

This is what happens when my goes berserk.. =.="

Even though my phone is like this sometimes, I still love my phone... =). Im not planning to sell it after getting a new one as it wont worth that much. I shall keep it as a spare when i get a new one. I've been using this particular phone for 3 years already. Ahhh... A lot of memories with this phone.... =D Tak sampai hate to throw it away or to change a new one.
I've dropped it countless times
Soaked it in a pail of water. Not on purpose of course.
Got soap all over it. =.=" i can't remember how.
It wakes me up every morning to school for the past 3 years. It never let me down. If it did, its probably my fault for turning off the alarm. XD
etcetc....
Even though its not a 3G or has bluetooth or whatsoever thing in this phones compared to other latest phones, I appreciate whatever I have.

The only reason why I'm still sticking onto this phone is my uncle... Last month, he called me personally and talked to me and that time, he offered me a deal. Hmm... How can i say it... A promise? I dont know... However, I agreed with him.

The question that is bugging me now is can I do it??? I'm sure you people might be wondering whats the deal/agreement/promise. Ok.. here it is.. If I... NONO..
WHEN..... I get all straight A's for my SPM, He will get me a phone of my choice.
I was @.@ wow... The first thing in my mind was an iphone and then comes other choices.
Well, I'll only be getting it when my SPM results is out next year...
Ah well, see how it goes... To wait or not to wait...
Anyway.....

I still love you my phone! ^^
I love maroon 5's new songs!! I can't help it! wheee!!
Starting from this month, i realised that I'm so much happier than before.
I don't know what does it mean... Whether I'll face another heartbreak again or something bad will happen.
But whatever happens, I'm enjoying myself for now although I feel like this now -----> @.@
I start singing and dancing to whatever songs i hear.
and eating lollipop again!

For sometime now, i felt a feeling from somewhere bugging me but not from me. I don't know what and how to react with it. I need my own space to breathe....
and again.. no pictures...

Im so dead... I have not study anything for my exams.

Short update

I wont be updating much now. Got tons of things to do.
Moral project, homework, reports, dance, flute, debate, debate, debate, EXAMS which i have not study anything yet. omg....... i need a break.

I went to Pavilion with friends yesterday. wheeee.... shopping!! But i did not buy anything =( I saw a pair of white skirt from Armani Exchange, but... too expensive and also a pair of black heels at The Tangs but... my gut feeling told me not to buy it. and yeap... i was right... I saw so many other things but i have no time and we're all too tired. However, I enjoyed myself. Walking and running in the rain, walking for quite a long time, laughing, making jokes, free food etcetcetc...

Not to forget salsa! ahh... I love it though i need to work on a few things. Me need to practice more with a partner or without also can. i want to update more abt this but im lazy... SPM results are out tommorow! i mean today!! All the best!!!!
I feel so abandoned now... Everyone is out shopping of having their head and eyes glued on the tv.... ugh....! ah well..its good at the same time.. =D
and for the past few days.... people have been telling me weird things. Let me highlight.... 2 PEOPLE actually... being so mysterious, suspicious and they're hiding something from me and i can feel it.
grrrrrrr.......

Debate Competition.

Chairman of the Debate

• Addressed as “Mr Chairman”
• Acts as Speaker of the House, calls on speakers to speak, decides disputes and keeps order
• If the Chairman rings the bell, all Members of the House except the current speaker must resume their seats
• If the Chairman stands, the current speaker must resume his seat.

Other etiquette
• Only one Member of the House may be on his feet at one time; therefore a speaker should sit down on giving way to an interruption or when the Chairman stands
• Cries of “Hear! Hear!” (in agreement) or “Shame!” (in disagreement), and “Order!” (to draw a speaker’s attention to a Member of the House wishing to raise a point, who he has not seen), are permitted but do not overdo it
• Booing or hissing are never acceptable
• Do not refer to another Member by name; use forms of address such as “The Honourable Member from [name of University]” or “The Honourable Proposer/Opposer”.

Time Limits on Speeches
• Must not exceed 8 minutes
• Time signals: 1, 7 and 8-minute intervals.

Defining the Motion
• The Government team defines the motion
• The definition should be reasonable, and clearly and logically linked to the motion and subsequent lines of argument.

No New Matter
• A team may not introduce any new matter after its second speech
• An argument or material is new matter unless:
- it has been previously used in the Debate; or
- it is introduced to rebut or reply to an argument or material previously introduced.

Points of Information
• A “Point of Information” in an interjection which raises a point of importance or is intended to correct a debater
• The Speaker has absolute discretion whether or not to yield to a Member of the House (which includes any members of the floor) who proposes point of information
• No Point of Information may exceed 15 seconds
• No Points of Information are permitted during the 1st or final minute of a speech. (There will be time signals at 1-minute and 7-minute intervals).
• Anyone (other than a speaker from the same side as the speaker making the speech ) may offer a point of information
• A Point of Information is offered by a Member of the House by standing and putting a hand on his or her head otherwise indicating his or her intention.
• A speaker is not obliged to accept any Point of Information. However, continual refusal of proposed Point of Information, or on the other hand, numerous acceptances of Points of Information which adversely affect the speaker’s substantive speech may be regarded unfavourably in the assessment of his or her performance. It is recommended that approximately 2 points of information be accepted in a speech but there is no hard or fast rule.

*****

All the rules stated above was just a short and brief description abt the debate rules. As you know, in every debate, you must have :

  1. Your stand
  2. Definition of the topic
  3. Your arguments/points(thats for sure)
  4. Point of information (POI)
  5. Rebuttles
  6. Reply Speech by the 1st/2nd speaker
The 1st speaker
Specify out Stand, Definition of the topic, rebuttles(if ur in the opposition team) and argument/point No.1

2nd Speaker
Refude/accepts opposition's definition. Rebut on 1st or/and 2nd speaker on either sides, present argument no.2 and no.3 and then re-affirm stand.

3rd speaker
Usually the powerful person in the team. He/She will be rubutting all the points/arguments presented by the opponents and re-affirm stand.

The topic of our debate is given 1 or is it 2 weeks earlier before the real competition begins. WE, HAVE to prepare everything for BOTH SIDES, government and opposition side. You do the math how many speeches you'll have to prepare.

Now, back to the debate competition chronology. We've been practising and practising and practising almost everyday in school. During school hours and after school. Its very stressful going in and out of the class every single day when your mind is concentrating on both studies and debate. The only classes I would never wanna miss is during Maths, Add Maths, Physics, Biology and Chemistry as all of these subjects are very important to me. I'm not saying that other subjects are not important. BUT! those other subjects can be done at home and its easy to catch up with them. All these has been going on for almost a month. Now, this thing called "debate" has been glued to my brain. Everyday i wake up, all i can think of is debate..debate..debate..debate.... -.-"

Debating is not easy. It takes up a lot of my time. and when i say a lot mean A LOT! We have to do a lot of research, extract the information and write them down into sentences. We have to prepare so many speeches both for opposition and government side. ughhh... Its frustrating.. After writing the speeches, we'll have to read them out and memorize them and if possible, do it impromptu.


Preparing their speeches. Left-right : Dinish, Dinie on the Mac, Shaz


Shaz rebutting with FIRE.

You know, debating is not as boring and as serious as you people imagine. Its fun, challenging and exciting when you put your heart into it. Well, we are serious when we have to. But most of the time, all of us will be joking, laughing and playing around during our discussions. Its also fun because we get to skip boring classes. =X Anyway, I'll fast forward my post since some people are bugging me when am i finishing. XD be patient....

One more thing i remember.. All of us have to travel all the way to Empress Hotel, in Sepang just to do our debate discussion after school from 2.30p.m untill 10p.m. It was fun and extremely tiring. Imagine being away from home from 6a.m untill 10p.m. 15 freaking hours!!! Well, we did had fun there. I took some pictures but it was deleted due to some problem of my memory card. So, the pictures were deleted and the best part is, I have a video on vinaya and dinie singing the Lollipop song by Mika. well if you don't know how the song goes like. go check it out at imeem. Yeah, they sang exactly like Mika or in other words like girls. XD Too bad the video was also deleted. it was really hilarious.

One day before our debate competition, we worked our head off! All of us skipped all of our classes.

Shaz and I

Dinnish and Dinie

Vinaya. This is what happens when you have 8 speeches to write.

The debate competition was on the 3rd of March at SMK Taman _____. We have 2 debate topics to prepare because both rounds will be held on the same day. The 1st topic is "parents and not the predators are the real villains behind child abduction" 2nd topic is "Owning a car TODAY is a bane not a boon"

The 3rd of March 2008.
The day we'll be facing our worth opponents. Muahahaha!! We're so ready!

When we reached the school, our first impressions were.. "wow..this school is huge..." Then, we went to the school library. We met our opponents there for the first time. Well, technically not for the 1st time as some of us and myself recognise our opponents since some of us are friends/ ex-schoolmates. One thing i hate abt their Library is that theres too many mosquitoes!!! And before we entered the library, there a huge sign saYing "HAPUSKAN DENGGI/NYAMUK AEDES"
We heard some of the ppl from other school insulted our school saying that "aiyah...

In the library, they flipped the coin to determine which side are we in. So, our school got to choose which side we wanted. Ofcourse! we choose the government team saying that parents are the real villains behind child abduction. It may seem hard but its actually easier for us.
Then, our debaters were quarantined in a room for 1 hour. As for me, i wasn't in the quarantine room. I was worried, nervous and kept looking at the time. So, while waiting for them, i went to the school canteen and i saw some cats. I looked at then and they looked at me. then i start playing with it. and no, i did not touch them.

When the debate starts, my hands and finger were freezing cold. I think Im making my friends nervous instead of telling them to be calm.




Before the debate starts...

XD Katuri, our 1st speaker presented her speech. It was very good. The 1st speaker of the opposition side wasn't that good. and he couldn't answer a POI. He said, "My team members will answer that later" omg.. thats bad... really bad... you're not supposed to do that if you wanna win...
Next, vinaya came up are smash their points and suddenly... "POI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" a girl shouted. I was stunned. omg..



Vinaya's temper was heating up.

the 2nd speaker of the opposition presented his speech and all of us felt bad for him because there was so many announcement at that moment and we couldn't really hear what he has to say. Another reason is the unreliable time keepers. They are supposed to ring the bell on the 1st and 7th minute. But, they kept ringing the bell every 1 minute! Aren't you people supposed to know that earlier!!?!?!! and he was rushing with speech as he thought it was almost time.

Now.... comes the 3rd speaker, Shamiq. aiyak..i forgot to take his picture.. nvm..
As many of you people know him, he loves sleepy and loves joking around. But on that day, he was a different person. a TOTALLY different person. He was smashing our opponents arguments like pancakes!
The 3rd speaker of the opposition, who was a girl came up and started her speech quite well. But a few things i dont really like about her is that she keeps saying "helooooo?" in a very you know like in those movies, the bad girls attitude. and on top of that, she was twisting her body and swing her hands at the same time.. we were like... O.O uhhh... and she was very rude. She insulted shazmiq. thats mean. Not good for debate. Its ok tob e sarcastic but dont be rude.

Well, after everything was over.. The adjudicators were calculating the marks and presented the results to the speaker to announce the winner of Round 1. Our hearts were pounding like a running horse. I felt a chill for a moment. The results is determine which word the adjudicators circled. GOVERNMENT...... or... OPPOSITION.

"Therefore I would like to announce that this house....... ACCEPTS the motion that parents are the real villain behind child abduction!"

WoooHOOOOoooooooooooooo!!! We won!!!!!!! *claps*!!!
That is not it... One of our speaker, shazmiq(3rd speaker) won the "best speaker award"
Now, thats a bonus!!! Muahahahaha!!!!

Ok, lets fast forward to the 2nd round...

This time, the debate was help in an air-conditioned computer room. =)
this time, we're debating with the host of the competiton which was SMK__X___
And again, they flipped the coin and out opponents gets to choose which side they want.
They choose opposition saying that owning a car today is a boon(blessing/good) not a bane(curse/bad). Hm... and again it might seem we're on a losing side. But now, we were so prepared for it as we wanted the government side. In addition, there was a Caucasian guy came out from nowhere. All of us saw him being there and our expressions were like "shite...... this is gonna be tough" Most of us almost panicked and we were worried sick. OMG....
And again they were quarantined for 1 hour. While waiting, I was in the computer room waiting for it to start.
*drumrolls*
The debate started with our 1st speaker, Dinnish, who is only A form 3 student but his voice and tone is very clear.

Dinnish
This is when he was answering The POI presented by our opponents.

He handled the POI really well although the POI was not clear at all. She was asking a POI that goes like this "Who benefits from all these things????". Out of the blue that question came out. Dinnish answered "We are not talking about who benifit fromThe speakers of SMK X suck big time. They can't speak proper/simple english, pronunciation is horrible, all of us couldn't understand what in the world is he and she saying and their general knowledge is very weak!!
my gawd!!! How on earth they won the 1st round???? All of us were wondering did the other school that they were debating with is far more worse???
Moreover, they don't remember the rules of the debate.

After dinnish answered the POI, the 1st speaker of the opposition jumped out of her seat and presented him with another question without saying

"POI please"

and dinnish shut her off by saying
" I'm afraid I've already answered your POI" wat the heck....

Next, 1st speaker of the opposition team came up and presented her speech. She did not specify the definition of the topic. Thats a huge mistake and we did not realise it. We couldn't understand what is she trying to say.

She pronounced the word "vehicle" wrongly.. She pronounced it as "vecycle", "ver-hike-kle", "ver-high-kle"... yeah.. "ver-high-kle", she repeated. Everyone in the room laughed at her. Seriously la... How can a debater do not know how to pronounce properly??? When she was rebutting vinaya's points, she was halfway discussing what she wants to say with her team members during the 8-minute speech. haih.... another bad sign. Next, her speech was too short untill theres nothing to POI or rebut. It was only 4 minutes!! what can we rebut??? Dinnish, vinaya and dinie were so engross and waiting to rebut. But it was too short and they were shocked. Infact, all of us were.

That.... is where we know that we're going to win for sure.

Next, vinaya gave his speech. After saying a few lines.....

2nd speaker opposition
"POI please!!!"

WTH?!?!?!?!
Vinaya
I'm sorry, but i'm afraid its not time for POI yet"

she was so embarrassed and apologised. Another bad thing to do. Then she asked for another POI.

2nd speaker opposition
"You said that, a car causes spousal discontentment right??? right???? How can you say that a car causes spousal discontentment??"

Vinaya
AS i said before, i quote an example that when a lady is driving, the man will always criticise the lady at their driving skills, why go through all these just because of a car??"

she continued saying that
"no..thats not what i meant.. i was saying that...imagine if your wife GIVE A BIRTH suddenly and you don't have a car to..."

Vi cut her off by saying
Im afraid you did not say POI so, therefore DENIED!!!

XDXDXD damn hilarious la....
GIve a birth??? whaaaat english is that????? Im starting to laugh harder and harder along with kasturi beside me. XDXDXD how can you ask a questin saying... right???...right??? This clearly shows shes not sure whats shes saying. Moreover, she did not re-affirm her stand before she ended her speech.

Now, our 2rd speaker, Dinie, who was so nervous, worried and scared felt the POWER and FIRE in him as he stomped them! He came up with a rebuttle saying that


Dinie
Did you know, Amsterdam is a car-free state and also a man sold his car that he had saved $65000 without it?"

3rd speaker of the opposition
"POI!! Where did you get your facts saying that Amsterdam was a car-free state??"

Dinie
We got our source from www.wikipedia.com.

I think there was more things here but this is as far as i could remember.

After that, came the 3rd speaker of the opposition team. He look as if he owns everyone of us. I feel like giving him a slap or a punch on his face. kasturi told teacher :

"teacher, better watch out for this guy... he look so confident"
"Nolah... I doubt he can do it"

Turns out, teacher was right.. he was the worst of the worst. He started his greetings too fast like a machine gun. Then he posted a question

Does anyone here owns a car???
Tell me, How many of you drive to school to reach here??
*pauses as if he was waiting for an answer*
A car is a necessity and everyone must have a car.
If we dont own a car today, no one will respect us.
Take for example, our county's economy depends on the production of cars and other countries will look down on us if we do not own a car and therefore we will be put to shame! So, by not having a car, our country will not be respected

POI!!!! (he accepts the POI)
How can you say that?? Tell me, who would you respect, a country with bullet trains, tube systems, tramps, etc or a country with people owning a cars that will only pollute the environment and if Amsterdam can live without a car, WHY CAN'T WE???

He couldnt answer that POI. haha!! In your face!! THE AUDIENCE AND ADJUDICATORS WERE IMPRESSED!
The he continued

The government team also mentioned that a car causes traffic jams. do you know that you can hear the traffic news on the radio and you can also listen to songs on the radio?

POI!!
Have you ever heard some creations called the ipod or the mp3 player???

He answered, Why do you need those stuffs if you have a radio in you car???!

WHAT THE HECK!!!! what crap are you talking?!?!!!! XDXDXDXDXD I cant stop laughing!!

He continued again, this time he asked the audience,
how many of you here in this room know that Amsterdam is a car-free state???
Who knows where is Amsterdam. Its not a famous country.
If Amsterdam is a car-free country, how can a person travel from one state to another???

POI again!!
We said that Amsterdam is a car-free state but NOT a BUS-FREE, PLANE-FREE, TRAMP-FREE, TRAIN-FREE OR PUBLIC-TRANSPORT FREE STATE! Even without a car you still can travel through these things!

I couldn't stop laughing till tears roll down to my cheeks. Joker la that guy.

Then he continued. but halfway through,
POI!!!!

He said,(pointing fingers with peace sign)
I've already answered 2 POI's So, i dont want to take anymore!

POI!!!

(pointing fingers at us)
How many times I wanna tell yah, I've already take 2 POI's. So stop giving more POI's

HAHA! Bang! he was shot dead in the head!

Whhat la.... I thought this debate was going to be more harder but it turned out to be a joke.!
Who wants to hear the radio in the car when you have an ipod or mp3 player?? and if you dont have any of those, who would pay attention to it when your concentrating more on the road?? XD
Why would people look down on other if you dont have a car?? ISHISHISH.
and he's damn rude la... english also tak betul.

Finally, the reply speech.... Vinaya crushed the opposition into pieces. Muahahaha!!! Look at this picture..

That ends with a huge and loud bang!
Muahahahah!!!

We beat the flat!!!
HOnestly i tell you, the 2nd round of debate was so crappy.... the previous school that lost to us were 50X better than SMK X. Anyway, we won obviously.
Another bonus!
The "best speaker award" was awarded to Vinaya.

Congratulations to everyone!! Everyone had the FIRE and CONFIDENCE on that day!
It was fun.. and now.. I shall rest my case....
Till next time..
