O young Lochinvar is come out of the west,
Through all the wide Border his steed was the best;
And save his good broadsword he weapons had none.
He rode all unarm'd, and he rode all alone.
So faithful in love, and so dauntless in war,
There never was knight like the young Lochinvar

He staid not for brake, and he stoppd not for stone.
He swam the Eske river where ford there was none;
But ere he alighted at Netherby gate,
The bride had consented, the gallant came late:
For a laggard in love, and a dastard in war,
Was to wed the fair Ellen of brave Lochinvar.

So boldly he enter'd the Netherby Hall,
Among bride's-men, and kinsmen, and brothers and all:
Then spoke the bride's father, his hand on his sword,
(For the poor craven bridegroom said never a word,)
'O come ye in peace here, or come ye in war.
Or to dance at our bridal. young Lord Lochinvar?'

'I long woo'd your daughter, my suit you denied;-
Love swells like the Solway, but ebbs like its tide-
And now I am come, with this lost love of mine.
To lead but one measure, drink one cup of wine.
There are maidens in Scotland more lovely by far,
That would gladly be bride to the young Lochinvar.'

The bride kiss'd the goblet: the knight took it up.
He quaff'd off the wine, and he threw down the cup.
She lookd down to blush. and she look'd up to sigh.
With a smile on her lips and a tear in her eye.
He took her soft hand, ere her mother could bar, -
'Now tread we a measure!' said young Lochinvar.

So stately his form, and so lovely her face.
That never a hall such a galliard did grace;
While her mother did fret, and her father did fume,
And the bridegroom stood dangling his bonnet and plume;
And the bride-maidens whisper'd, "Twere better by far
To have match'd our fair cousin with young Lochinvar.'

One touch to her hand, and one word in her ear.
When they reach'd the hall-door, and the charger stood near;
So light to the croupe the fair lady he swung,
So light to the saddle before her he sprung!
'She is won! we are gone, over bank, bush, and scaur;
Theyll have fleet steeds that follow', quoth young Lochinvar.

There was mounting 'mong Graemes of the Netherby clan;
Forsters, Fenwicks, and Musgraves, they rode and they ran:
There was racing and chasing on Cannobie Lee,
But the lost bride of Netherby ne'er did they see.
So daring in love, and so dauntless in war,
Have ye e'er heard of gallant like young Lochinvar?

happy belated valentine

such a busy valentine day.. not busy for dating, in contrast, no dating at all.

accomplishment on the journal writing has given me a way to blogging here.

this year valentine was a replacement class for the cny holiday. due to the tiredness, drag until 7am only crawl up from bed. started off a fully-occupied day with a exhausted body. classes followed by preparation of forum, practice of choral speaking, meeting with director and.... huh... dusk...

back to the hostel still facing a water shortage. online... saw a lot of "happy valentine day". in fact, valentine is nothing for me. even chatted with a friend, how he celebrate valentine romantically. haha... wish this couple blissful forever. finally back to my bed tiredly...

start a brand new day... slept in assembly and another talk especially for the girls(w_s_a_e). last minute practice for the forum and carried successfully outdoor. the forum members shared their research and commented refer to the text too often. im the modulator carried out the forum very relaxing and manage the situation well. relax is clearly seen from my sitting position :p
sudden black-out in the whole college and water shortage is life and parcel of life.

24 days more for me to be back to the place which belongs to me.

I Got Flowers Today - by Paulette Kelly

i got flowers today.
it wasn't my birthday or any other special day.
we had our first argument last night,
and he said a lot of cruel things that really hurt me.
i know he is sorry and didn't mean the things he said.
because he sent me flowers today.

i got flowers today.
it wasn't our anniversary any other special day.
last night, he threw me into a wall and started to choke me.
it seemed like a nightmare.
i couldn't believe it was real.
i woke up this morning sore and bruised all over.
i know he must be sorry.
because he sent me flowers today.

i got flowers today,
and it wasn't Mother's Day or any other special day.
last night, he beat me up again.
and it was much worse than all the other times.
if i leave him, what will i do?
how will i take care of my kids?
what about money?
i'm afraid of him and scared to leave.
but i know he must be sorry.
because he sent me flowers today.

i got flowers today.
today was a very special day.
it was the day of my funeral.
last night, he finally killed me.
he beat me to death.
if only i had gathered enough courage and strength to leave him,
i would not have gotten flowers... today.

CNY at Machang

here comes the 1st weekend after my cny break. we went to a schoolmate's house at Machang. 3 cars from KPLI student joined with my seniors and my chinese classmates, a total 13 students go 拜年~

my gal classmate and i follow 2 KPLI guy's car. when he know my age, he just call me 小妹妹。那我就只好叫他雄哥哥。虽然8年的岁数距离,和他也很健谈。但我们聊天的范围都太成熟化了,并没有哈哈大笑,但也因此而知道他更多。家伟更说很高兴。。。因为认识那么可爱的我。。。 =。=" * he don't know how mature am i....
雄哥哥,chia wai, tong, yaw, boon seang.

we had a scrumptious lunch and steamboat dinner. cannot be described by words, its too delicious. after lunch we had a walk nearby the house. there are durian trees, coconut trees, nangka trees and a herd of cows. a kl girl is having a touch with the mother nature. just appreciate it.

during and after cny break

during cny i was busy enjoying my wonderful life at kl.
during cny i spent most of my time with my parents at kl.
during cny i slept in the midnight even 4-5am and wake up as the early birds sing.

after the cny i had a black-out in my hostel for more than 24 hours.
after cny im back to the tight study schedule which is from 7.45am until 7pm and night class.
after cny i slept before 12am and wake up at 6.30am.

my life has undergo a dramatic change when i move from kl to kb. in the 1st semester, i never borrow books from library. currently in the 2nd semester, im a regular book borrower every 2 weeks.

today is the tightest class i had. after the sports until 7pm, 8.30pm still have another replacement class. i really feel proud of myself to be so energetic to attend all the classes without yawning.

even in the 1st morning literature class, we did have fun on poems. by paying fullest attention to the class, i really learnt more than usual until an extent to raise up question to enligthen the lecturer.

another lecture we had group discussion and being observed. i enjoy the most in our group discussion which brought up a title "LOVE". We are not focussing on couple love, but look further into love on family, animals, environment and God. we received compliments too. enjoy it~

night class we had a debate. in fact, there is no right or wrong. just make the class in havoc perhaps. btw, everyone of us enjoy it.

dear friends, enjoy your life everyday as our single day is given my the Almighty God. grasp the time and you will never regret.

Jesus love you ~
