Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Feels good to finally get some proper rest. Aye... oh yeah, something I forgot to mention. On Thursday I went out with Daniel and Cindy to watch a movie. Cindy wanted to watch either Hellboy II or Wanted, but I saw Wanted already and Daniel saw Hellboy II already, so we just stuck with watching some Indonesian horror flick. Well... nothing to say. The subtitles were out of proportion for like half the movie (like only the upper half on screen), so I couldn't understand certain parts. So Cindy, being an Indonesian, translated the bad subtitled parts for me. Haha! Interesting having a translator. The movie wasn't scary at all to me, and honestly it was a little boring. The ghost had a cute laugh that made me laugh and except for 2 scenes where she looked "okay" other time she didn't look scary at all. Cindy got freaked out easily and her grabbing onto my arm hurt. Hurt! Geez! Later we met Ervina and we all had a bak kut teh meal. Very nice. Happens to be the same place I first fellowshipped with my cellgroup when I visited KL for the first time. Hm.
Yesterday I woke up late, 'cause of the clubbing incident, and I reached school a bit late too. Luckily, it wasn't too bad, and I didn't miss anything. We needed to draw set pieces again this time, and I was very amazed at how well I drew in comparison to my usual work. My shading was better than normal, and my outlines and proportions were better than anything I had done previously. Of course, compared to several of my classmates, my artwork was still "primitive". I drew quite well, but the biggest headache was drawing a pineapple. Lisa (lecturer) purposely put a pineapple on every set, so everyone eventually drew something that ended up looking like another fruit. Most drew something that looked like an oversized strawberry, and some drew a papaya look-a-like. Everyone said I drew something that looked like a jackfruit. LOL.
I went to eat with Wai Kwan, Ruz and Kok Kin plus a few others a McDonald's later. Had a great chat, before we headed off to the arcade to play some games. I played DDR for the first time in my life, and I barely made it. Heck. Not easy... and unlike Parapara Paradise, where I can win without knowing how, DDR was difficult. I also sweated like hell after 3 rounds of insane songs, and it wasn't comfortable.
I went off for service, and it was the church 7th anniversary. For praise and worship, they had an orchestra actually play along with the worship. Pretty cool! There's always the usual band and all for the songs, but adding an orchestra made the songs all the more nicer and the atmosphere so much more enjoyable. Great sermon by Pastor Kevin too, which was about dreams, and having one, following one, and achieving one. Brilliance.
Anyhoo, after service we went to fellowship at Asia Cafe. I needed an ATM, so I heard that there was a Hong Leong one at Taylor's University. Hansen walked with me to Taylor's, but there was no Hong Leong ATM. We walked around the entire SS15 area and there was Maybank, AmBank, Public Bank, CIMB and practically every other bank except Hong Leong -.-. Heck... after we walked one big circle and sat back down, I was told I can use any bank's ATM to withdraw money, but they'll charge 50sen. WHAT! I walked all the way around just to hear that? Lmao! I borrowed RM10 instead and ate.
Later on some of us went to Nick's funeral. Anyhoo, James told us about it during the announcements. Honestly it was a mood-killer. We had enjoyed a fantastic 7th anniversary service, great atmosphere, worship, jumping, and suddenly James mentioned Nick had passed away. We went there, paid our respects and talked about the Protestant view and Catholic views of his death. You might be wondering why. Well, he committed suicide. Considering no one who reads my blog knows him, and those who know him already have the details, I don't think there's a need to elaborate on my blog. I will make a post about my feelings and thoughts, but nothing overstepping personal family relations.
God, let this be my first and only cellgroup death. He's my third friend to die, and the 5th person I personally know.
