fun fun fun

hello people..

started the day badly...got up late(as usual) only to find that my aunt came to my house unsuspectedly.. but that's not the point.. i felt so tired and sleepy because of yesterday's event, which i'll write later...

watched oprah, and today's topic was very.. touching...BETRAYAL.. two couples shared their story, and in both, the wives are the victim... i am not trying to be a feminist here, but more often than not, it is true, men like to cheat on women, and sadly this too happen to the married couples.. haiyo!?! maybe i'll higtlight this topic someday, but just dont feel like it right now...

i stopped writing a while a go to catch up diari akedemi.. yeay!! this season, the students are..hmm, unique?!?! aah, that's an understatement..everybody is unique in his/her own special way..there are quite a few sabahan and sarawakian compared to the first one. i guess the organizer felt guilty for not having them in af1 so this time around, they got their chance.. one guy is soooo cute..so, AFUNDI KHAIR!!!

okay, lets write about yesterday.. i went to genting highland with aishah, hajar, meen and idan.. man, we had FUN FUN FUN!! we merely spent rm22 for the bus ride, cable car ride and also for the outdoor theme park!! talk about cheap things in life.. on the way to kl sentral, i met haina in the train..so we chatted..hangus?!?! haha. funny..

in the bus, i sat with meen while aishah, hajar and idan shared two seats.. hehe, those toothpicks...the seats are enough for everyone though, but we just couldn't be seperated...hehe.. we talked loud and laughed like the bus was ours...ayo people, we were from 'kampung ulu', so sue us..

did i mention that i'm so damn afraid of heights?!?! hmm, the cable car ride really didnt help.. when it started moving, i thought, man, what am i doing?? i wanna go back!! i gripped the handle so hard and couldnt really enjoy the view. anyway, this cable car is the fastest in s.e.a and it's <> 3.5 km long..like hajar said.."how do they know it's the fastest?"

eventhough we spent all day at genting, we only managed to go on 5 rides.. exaggerations aside, we really had to wait an hour in line for each ride, plus minus..
hmmm, the first one that we tried was the spinner.. it was the like the one in beautiful life, not that scary, but still, i did contribute to the screaming and shouting.. hehe.. i just had to, it was my thang.. of course i kept my eyes open all the way through..

next, the corkscrew!! yup, roller coaster, here we come!!! it was really a long line, so while waiting we munched up some food we bought earlier..is it a good idea to have burger and 100plus before going on a roller coaster??you should try.. luckily none of us puked! idan was afraid of heights, just like me, and corkscrew was not her thing at all..we had to convince and drag her to this.. she survived.. yeay!! for me, afraid as i was of heights, i just wanted the thrill and action..hehe..so there i was, sceaming like a MAD girl with aishah and the others.. yup, even when it was moving horizontally..haha..compared to the rollercoaster in sunway lagoon, there wasn't much loops, but still scary though..

okay, the scariest thing of all, the space shot..and the line...........was very long i tell you..and did i mention how hot it was?!?! i wasnt feeling very well with the sun shining oh-so-brightly up my head, (genting ke tak genting, panas jugak),but when i thought about the space shot, yeay, i was up on my feet again!! and then, we saw this guy and man, he looked like a mix of schumaker and stallone.. he was energetic and VERY excited, making a scene everywhere he went.. hehe..at this time, idan was like, " i'm not going to do this"..and there i was, making my speech about living life to the fullest, and enjoying these kind of things while you're still young so that in the future, when you look back, you wont have to say, man,i wish i would have done that...so yeay, once again, idan was convinced!! mission accomplished.. btw, do you know what space shot is? see the pics okay people?!! finally, our turn...the three of us sat together, idan, meen and me... when the seats went up slowly, all i could do was mengucap, said my prayers and just wished that i wouldnt die this way..the climax was when the thing stopped a few hundreds feet above the ground(genting is already on high ground, remember?) for a few seconds, and suddenly went down without a warning, and up again and down...the feeling was so....i cant think of the right word here. it was like, the seats have fallen, and your bodies remained up there..and i you would feel like you were floating a milisecond before you came crashing down to the ground..kudos to me again because i opened my eyes all the way..the funny part was when meen kept saying " idan, close your eyes" and at the same time, "nina, look, over there, beautiful view"..hehe...i think everyone should try this at least once....

so after space shot we decided to play with something ON the ground... hehe.. so we queued at the fun kart 'station'..we had to sign an agreement earlier so if accident or anything happened, we were fully responsible of ourselves... that set hajar quite mmmm, i don't know, scared?! owh, she's 15 and hasn't had her licsence yet, and, her morbid imagination really didn't help... you should hear her never-ending what-ifs...and it continued in the cable car on the way back..this time around, idan was the one who gave the convincing speech to hajar..speaking like a pro, sista!! hehe..since this ride required us wearing proper shoes, we didnt get the chance to race with each other because some of us were wearing sandals, and we had to share and take turns...so, i made a few laps and pretended that i was racing with schumaker... and,owh, did i mention about that guy, who looked like shcumaker?? he was also go-karting, before us...and like i said, he liked to make a scene everywhere..he was shouting and waving at us all like he was some sort of.... i dont know.... he just made us his audience..whatever dude... during the five minutes karting, hajar pressed the brakes more than the accelerator, and aishah... hmm, how can i put it in the most unhumiliating way, ... met with a teeny-weeny accident at the corner....hahaha.....

before we went back, we just thought that we had to get WET..so we went on sungai rejang flume ride..hmm, this thing went well for the most part.. hehe.. it was a little bit scary since there was no safety belt what-so-ever, merely a slippery and watery handle that we could hold on to..in short, it was all great and i'm not complaining..the only thing i could think of complaining was the express tickets.. you know, people with these tickets could go on any ride without lining up like the others do, and it was unfair!! we had to queue for hours and suddenly these people just cut the lines...okay, so they paid more, but, hmm, like aishah said, it was a discrimination between the rich and poor.. hehe!! just wait till i get get rich, then i'll shut up.. one more thing, the skill game?!?! they were just impossible...

hmm, we planned our time perfectly for our prayers... haha, imagine four in one people...around 6.30 pm we went searching for the surau, and prayed zohor/asar(jamak takhir).. waited a while and then maghrib/isyak(jamak takdim)...when we were all done, it was almost 8pm and we had to rush to catch our 8.30pm bus and not to forget, the half hour cable car ride.. all of us were practically running to get there on time, and for the people there, it was like watching an episode of amazing race with us as the contestants..hehe..all the way, we never stop saying " excuse me + sorry + tumpang lalu + thank you)...so, after the 'pushing and shoving', we made it, and even had a few more minutes to kill...we went into this one shop, selling stupid scary masks and even put them on...okay, once again, the girls from kampung, made a scene..i think i'll upload the proof later okay people...

in the cable car on our way back, i felt more relaxed, plus, it was dark and i could not see the view outside, so it was not at all scary.. and, this second time around in the cable car, i was standing and fooling around taking pictures... hehe..

we arrived at sentral quite early and decided to have supper before going back.. me and idan went back to shah alam, and once again, we were running to catch our train just like another episode of amazing race, only to find that we actually had missed it and the best part was, we were NOT even at the right platform...

the last train arrived around 11 and it took us home... along the way, i chatted with idan (we only met twice, because she's a friend of aishah).. and hmmm, it was interesing..the topic?!?! remains a secret!! hehe, poyo...

all in all, it was a GREAT outing... thank you people...(esp my mum for letting me go)
