Nothing special happened that day.Well, I spent my time in my home sitting in front of my computer and staring at it. I really don't know what to do. So, I decided to surf around the net to find some useful stuffs to put it into my assignments. When I went downstairs, I found out my brother didn't go to school again, which means he skipped class. I was so angry and I was thinking :" What are these kids doing and thinking these days? Do they feel 'I am tired, so I do not want to go to class'? Are they lazy? Are they avoiding something? Or are they just finding excuses to disguise their irresponsible attitude towards themselves?" I just don't quite understand the kids these days (my time will be, excuses = caning and scolding) So, I continued to do my stuffs and ignored him.
At night, I watched American Idol with my family on 8tv ( I don't subscribe Star World). This week's theme is "Inspirational songs" and their mentor is Alicia Keys( I still prefer last week where Adam Lambert is the mentor^^). She gave good advices to all of the contestants and she keep stressing a point where they should feel the song and get connected to it so that the viewers will get what they feel too. Well, I want to talk about a few contestants. First up was Casey and he did performed quite well. I mean he played the guitar well, sang well and it was an okay performance for me. The second one was Lee Dewyze. I kind of like this contestant because he gave me a feeling of he is a come back of David Cook and Kris Allen. I was touched by the way he sang that night. To me, he has a chance to win if he has more confidence(that's my opinion-lah~).Siobhan was one of the favorites but she seems lost and I think she gets more worse every week.The contestant I loved most was Crystal Mamasox!! She was the last person to come out to sing but she sang very nicely and she cried but she managed to sing the whole song. She is great! She has personality too!

Happy Birthday Dad!!!and also 2 of my friends, Lim Chai Fook and Chen Kai Xian!! And...haha..my friend's brother, even if I don't know you.
Morning was usual for me (assignments) and some researching.
When it was dinner time, we went to a restaurant near Sunway Pyramid to celebrate my father's birthday. It was the second time I went there with my family. The first time was last Friday where we had our birthday there to celebrate my mother's birthday.
During the night, me and family sat down in front of the TV set again to watch American Idol, Idol Gives Back programme and results show(thank God Tim Urban was voted out). This usually 1 hour show has become 2 hours for the Idol Gives Back Concert where they featured singers such as The Black Eyed Peas, Mary J.Blidge, Orianthi, Sir Elton John, previous American Idol winner Carrie Underwood and many more. They also show many videos about their effort to help prevent malaria among the people in Africa by calling out to people to donate just $10 to buy mosquito nets for the Africa people so they won't get malaria easily.I was touched by all the videos that are reported I feel we need to take the effort to help these people by just donating and charity work = good karma (if you believe it).
Speaking about charity, every year me and my fellow friends called the Youth group will organize a 30 hour Famine D.I.Y camp by World Vision and this year theme is "为wei孩hai子zi 打da造zao无wu贫pin城cheng市shi，light up their life". (The first half of that sentence in means we build a non-poverty urban area for the children) This camp will take place on the 21st and 22nd of august 2010 and readers, I would like to show you a video about the families' stories in the urban areas where poverty happens to them

Saturday and Sunday
These 2 days I was at my senior house having some not too serious, some fun but still kind of serious meeting and it was all about sharing.
On Saturday, we discussed to juniors' problem among ourselves(ex-seniors) and ways we suggest to solve the problem. It was a long one and it took 12 hours(9 am to 9pm) . However in the end, we are quite satisfied about what we came out for the juniors.
The next day, I reached my senior's house around 7 something to discuss some last minute detail and problems we are going to face. The day went quite smoothly and we manage to hear the opinions of our juniors from each form and their feeling and thoughts toward the matters that are discussed earlier.
I knew the meeting will take a long time so I postponed my piano class to another time to be there and to listen to their problems and help solving it. By the end of the day, I did hope they solve the problems among themselves and I wish them good luck in everything, especially their upcoming Kadet Remaja Sekolah anniversary celebration.
After that, I went back home, eat my lunch-dinner meal, take a nice bath, turn on my computer and start writing this blog. Hope you guys like it.^^
So, these are the things I did during my 1 week holiday!!!!
See all of my
