Of the SAT and the Prevailing Ends…

Day 1st – The Arrival

Wednesday, the day I head to Shah Alam. All alone from Kuantan, then arrived at Puduraya. Later, I took a brisk walk to the nearest Mydin (located at Sinar Kota), and bought some necessary things for the stay at Cendana. After performing my Zohor prayer, I left my bags at the Surau and started my trip to Times Square. My trip to the Times Square and Low Yat Plaza is only a short one, for I was travelling alone. Hoping to find someone I knew, my walk ended up without anything interesting. When I stroll alone inside the Sungai Wang Plaza, I found a music store at the highest floor. I asked a common question, do you sell a left handed guitar? I got the same answer, but this one is more promising. The salesgirl said, ‘come back next week, we can order it for you.’ For me, it’s not the availability that matters, but the price which says it all. The cheapest one that I found remains at Lestari Sound Studio, the SX lefthanded that I had mentioned in my previous post. Enough about the guitar, let’s get back to the main points. After buying my game controller, I walk back to the Times Square and have my late lunch at the KFC there, alone. Then I continue my journey back to Shah Alam when it was almost about 7 o’clock. Thank God, I managed to get there in time to perform my prayer. When I arrived at the Paan’s room, I saw nobody was there. Even the light was not turned on. In the room, I saw Fauzan was sleeping soundly. I gave him some brief, hard kicks but he insisted to wake up. I went to the opposite room and I saw Paan, Niro and Botak were playing FIFA. Oh, now I see how those guys were preparing for their SAT examination. The first night was tiring, but it was great to see those guys again. It was about 2 in the morning when I try to sleep, but suddenly Fasha’s voice boomed next to my ears. Opening my eyes, I saw those two big creatures (which I sincerely refer to Paan and Fauzan) were talking with Asnida on the phone. Great guys, good luck for your SAT.

Day 2nd- Meet the Girls, and My Girl

The next morning, I woke up exactly at 7 to perform my prayer. Then, you know what, get back to sleep. I woke up again at about 9 am. After taking my bath, Paan, Fauzan and I went to INTEC and we start to study. Struggle… There, I met the girls (who I would honorably mentioned; Asnida, Azleen and Nadiah) who had arrived way earlier than us. About 5 pm, we (please note that this time I refer to Paan, Fauzan, Aman, Niro and I) have a drink at Wira Klasik (figure out yourself where this restaurant is located). It was so relieving after a chilling weather all day long. My girlfriend asked for countless times if I want to go and meet her at Subang. I don’t know why, maybe it was because I was missing her too much, I went to meet her that particular night. Knowing that she won’t sing if I asked her to go to the karaoke, I asked her to bring along my cousin. My cousin had just rebonding(or should I say rebonded?) her hair, and I think it was cool. She looked great with her new hair. We all went dinner, and karaoke. After that, I went back to Shah Alam, arriving just minutes before 11 o’clock. What else, after a short revision, I get some sleep.


Day 3rd – The Last Preparation

This time I missed my subuh prayer. Funny, but I really don’t realize the time. Maybe it was because I was too tired from the night’s revelry. Preparing for the SAT, I wrote an essay early in the morning, while everybody else was still sleeping. Then, we went to INTEC and study again…

That evening, I met more people in the library. There goes Laguvaran, Firdaus and some other guys. That day, I met Syimma. That’s all I have to mention. Arrived at Cendana, I met Bok and Syazwi. Got some new indie tracks from Bok, and I like to mention that this is the first time I listen to the music by Estrella. Nice really…

The night, we eat our dinner that we bought at the Pasar Malam. So filling, and so pocket-grabbing. It was the time for our last preparation for SAT. Mixed feeling in myself, but I still managed to play GTA with Fauzan before I went to sleep. Got to sleep early, I don’t want to fall asleep during the Critical Reading section in the exam…

Day 4th – The Big Day + The Celebration

It was a cold, chilling morning. I was hardly able to take my bath, but I have to. After I boarded the bus, I realized that I had left two important things in the room. The first one is my Snickers that I had bought the night before that I plan to eat in the examination hall during the break. I don’t know why, but I totally forgotten about it. The second thing is my camera, which I had brought with the purpose to take as many pictures as I can. It was totally disappointing that I had left it unused (it was 7.2 MP Cybershot!).

Arrived the Metropolitan College at about 7.30 am, I went as fast as I could to the respective class. There, I met my former schoolmate, Taqiyuddin. We had a little chat before the exam starts…

There it goes, the SAT finally ended. I walked out from the class, chatting a little more with Taqi, before Paan called me and we head out to the main gate, where the INTEC bus was waiting. There, I met Kamarul. He looked totally tensed out by the exam, and he asked if I want to go jamming to release all the tension. However, I refused for I had agreed with Asnida and Syimma to go to Sunway Pyramid with them. Next, I went to the Sunway Pyramid with those girls. Boring and only boring can describe our outing that day. We was planning to watch some movies that day but we had failed to do so as the movie schedule was not really fit into our timeline. So there is nothing we could do besides walking around with nowhere to go and finally, Paan, Fauzan and I ended up sleeping in the surau since after Asar until Maghrib. It was great, really great. After Maghrib, we all went to the MPH book store, and we met Ms. Farah Azaliney there. After a little chat, we left for home. On the way, I bought new strings for my guitar. Playing as a normal right handed person is so much easier to me. The new D’addario’s was easy to install, and it sounds great. However, my guitar’s tuning machine was not strong enough to hold the electric guitar’s strings, so it has to be tuned very regularly. Back to the topic, we bought some bread at the Bread Story (thanks to Paan, he pays for all the breads!). Now this part is the most pathetic, a cheap, tiring trip around Subang Jaya. We all boarded a minibus and the bus took us around Subang Jaya about 2 times. F**k that driver. Finally, we all arrived at the KTM station. Once Paan, Fauzan and I arrived at Cendana, we all agreed to take some time and have our dinner, together with some delicious fried ‘kerang’ (I don’t know what kerang is in English, sorry) before continue to go back to the college.

Day 5th – Leaving for Home

That morning, Fauzan was very hectic as he woke up extremely late and has to rush to catch his bus. Paan and I arrived at the bus terminal about 9 o’clock and we have some nasi lemak with Asnida and Azleen. Thanks to Nurul Azleen who paid for our drinks. That was the first time I boarded a double decker bus. Nice experience though. Arrived at Kuantan in a heavy rain, I and my family go directly to Megamall for the PC Fair. Then, SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDILADHA!!!

p/s: A lot of thanks for my lecturer, Ms. Nuramira for her helpful instructions for the whole semester. My sincere regards to all my friends, especially those who have been so helpful to me in helping me to succeed in the SAT examination. I would like to dedicate a special thanks to Paan who allowed me to stay in his room, kindly took my admission ticket and urge me to study when I was too relaxed. Not to forget, Fauzan and Aman who offered a commendable hospitality during the days I’ve spent in their room. Best of luck for your SAT, and wish me luck too.
