Studying For The Test.

INSTEAD OF HITTING THE BOOKS like a good student I should be to study for the test in March, I go about the house ironing and re-ironing everything in the cupboard including the handkerchief, sweeping and re-sweeping the floor, mopping and re-mopping everything flat, dusting and re-dusting everything that the house is now clean as a nuclear plant. As a matter of fact it is so clean I got nothing left to do except to open up a chapter of a book to study but what do I do? I go start up my new iMac and fidgeting here and there to type this entry. I gotta admit that I have never liked school all that much except when I was in Remove Class D of Dungun English Secondary School. That was because Miss Low was there to teach me English and she was pretty that I thought I'd marry her and live happily ever after. There's no pretty girls at UIAM that I fancy falling in love with and this is a big problem because I kinda need a bit of romance to get me fired up to study and do well the exam.
And so for the past couple of weeks, I have been keeping myself off the books when I should be reading those pages like a student that I am but what did I do? I took a drive to a nice restaurant to treat myself to a fancy Middle Eastern food that got me quite full that I thought of calling a cab to take me home on account I was too full to drive that it could pose some kinda hazard to other drivers on the road. But that didn't stop me from treating myself to loads and loads of good olive oil, tahine, nougats and bukhor to keep the house smelling like a mosque in Morocco.
Still I gotta read those books if I want to continue my pursuit for knowledge next semester. By the look of it, I don't stand half a chance because I've been missing classes quite a bit because of my trips to Sungai Bakap but that was OK because in my book, doing something for love is always a good thing even though I might not get anything in return but still, at least I can say to myself I did what I had to do for love.
Ok, I gotta read. (Did I have a bit of baklava in the fridge? Wait, I gotta fix a bit of lemon syrup to along with it. And then I read. If it doesn't rain. Otherwise, I'm taking my bike to go ride in the rain.)

Maybe you can do your readings in Sg. Bakap, Jawi should you be going there again in the near future. Probably a change of setting might do the trick *wink*

Who says you've got to read books to pass your exams?

Books are dangerous you know, they give you ideas, like now I have read it, I consider myself a knowledgeable man, kind of ideas. That is bad man.

Sungai Bakap as in Jawi in Penang or some other Sungai Bakap?

Berg, take anon 11.00's advice.. bring those books of yours to Sungei Bakap. Go mentelaah there, ataih buai underneath pokok nyioq, sitting togeder2 with your latest 'fruit-of-the-heart'. by my reckoning, kalu you tak pass exam pon, at least you pass bb romen-romen..LOL

Anon 11.00am: It's a brilliant idea! he he.

Cikgu: It's in Jawi, sir. Don't know of any other Sungai Bakap.

Fi-sha: Actually I don't take in the place all that well, but then again, it doesn't really matter he he

Kama At Tarawis: LOL, betui ka boleh blajaq kalau dah duduk ataih buai lagu tu? LOL

Salam Bergen
After Raden Galoh's, you can come over and clean up at my apartment ... it surely needs serious dusting and mopping!!!
I haven't hit the books myself although I have been on a buying spree of reading materials of late!

Raden Galoh: UIAM Gombak, in my opinion, has the largest concentration of beautiful women at any given time of the day.

Anonymous 2.25pm: I like that word mentela'ah.

Desert Rose: No, ma'am, not Uganda campus, I'm at Gombak campus and it's might as well be the place where all the beautiful women come to study.

Azudesu: I'm not sure about cramping it all in at the last minute - but then again it might work for me. LOL

Fauziah Ismail: Maybe I should start buying books too just to keep up with you. Good idea eh? he he

Bergen Sir,

Perhaps you may try to do your reading on top of Gunung Jerai. But don't forget to bring a binocular so that whenever you find the book is too dull you can color your eyes with a beauty of the Pendangshire nearby.

Best of luck.
