A Small Part Of Her Life

EDIT: I’m so sorry for all the misunderstanding caused to all my friends/readers about the term SCHOOL [Yes, it is Sunday Class, something like school for Handsome Blogger?] in this post. It is partially my fault for not checking the terms clearly first before allowing it to be published. So, thank you Helen, for pointing it out! 😀 -Hugs!!- [Yes, this is Samantha! 😀 ]

And the second thing is, all post filed under guest bloggers, are heavily edited by me. So don’t feel surprise la like why every guest blogger is using the ~*~ symbol or whatever that sounds like me. I’m not trying to say that it’s my trademark or whatever, but then I’ll just explain because there is one friend of mine who was kinda confuse.

~*~

*Cough* Okay, here I am, the Handsome Blogger who FFK-ed the owner of this blog to blog a few weeks ago. Sorry la girl :P, nah, I compensate, this is the completed post :p.

~*~

So, everyone, hello! I am the Handsome Blogger, another close friend of Samantha. Everyone has been writing about Samantha and I am going to write about how Samantha and I knew each other. Everyone described Samantha in a happy and cheerful manner because that was how they first saw her as. And as for me, I’ve seen her in a totally different way 🙂

~*~

There was this new girl who came to our school and when she walks into our class, there are just oohhh-s and ahhhh-s going around because they are curious of who is the new girl. I remember her first self introduction ever was this:

Hie!

Ah, now you want to ask why did I remember it so well? =) It is because, she is the first girl in the class who walks in with her hair all tied up, wears a huge T-shirt with a pair of jeans and sandals. And she is also the first girl in our class which none of the guys are interested with her at all.

As usual, the teacher asked us to be friends with her and sure, no one did though she did try to mix around. And she sat down all by herself right at the back. She was teased, laughed at by some girls for no apparent reason [But now I think, it is because she is different], made fun of but still, she kept quiet and put on a neutral face expression as if it is something absolutely normal.

Trust me, if she’s ever in love with a guy in the class [I’m not sure?], and the guy happens to be her best friend and is dating someone else in class, it’s gonna fit part of the lyrics in You Belong With Me by Taylor Swift perfectly.

She wears short skirt, I wear T-shirts.

She wears high heels, I wear sneakers.

But now, we all know, Samantha wears short skirt and high heels :).

Samantha is the girl in class who does all her homework and had often get them done perfectly and she is always misunderstood by others because she doesn’t mix with anyone else. She just sits behind there all by herself, living away in her dream world and not talking to anyone else. Yea I know, unbelievable, but believe it.

I’ve never once approached her or to say hello to her because she have this very egoistical face expression which was automatically switched on when she entered the class after the first two weeks of school. And I always remember how when the teacher in class asked her to read from the book, she would read very nervously and so softly until you can’t actually hear her. So most of the time, she was made to read twice or thrice until she looks like she’s gonna cry anytime soon.

If we are all made to do a presentation, she would be the first in class to drop her jaws and then when the day comes, she will bumble, fumble and stumble her way through [It’s a wonder that she doesn’t skip classes]. I remember how she looked like when she was told that she should be like the other girls, who can speak with courage, confidence and eloquence.

I still remember her first presentation ever because it was like hmm… seeing a girl walking nervously to the front, staring at everyone [and most of the girls in turn giggle at her], trying to find her words and wondering what to say/what is there to present and in the end, being told off that she is definitely not made for public speaking or debate or anything like that and then everyone will look at her and she will just smile and walk back to her seat feeling all relieved that it’s all over.

When I tried to approach her, she’ll just walk away and she won’t even smile to me or anyone else in class. When I tried to talk to her, she’ll end it quickly and then go elsewhere alone. When I tried to pull her in our conversation, all she did was she gave us a smile, stood there and listen and did nothing else.

Every break time, everyone is with their own friends and she’ll sit down, all alone, reading and writing. When I approached her and asked if she wants to join us, she gave me a warm smile and said no. In fact, I wasn’t the only one who approached her. To sum it up, she rejected everyone’s offer to play a game or to talk.

It was until one day, where we had this compulsory school camp and for the very first time, she attended. And that was the very first time, I talked to her and that was after 2 years of observing her in class.

Me: Hey, do you need any help to carry your luggage?

Samantha: *Cold stares* No thank you. [Super cold respond]

Me: -.-!! Okay. Bye.

Samantha: Bye. [Super cold voice]

And the whole time in camp, she sat down alone and dream the day away. She refused to talk to anyone, when someone made fun of her, she’ll just keep quiet, sit down quietly and act dumb, as if no one has actually said something.

It was until one evening, when we are having dinner and I saw her sitting at a corner alone. It was then I walked over, sat in front of her and talked to her properly. Initially, it was obvious that she didn’t want to talk, but then later on, she sort of opened up a little :).

It is easy to understand her but the sad thing is, people just don’t take their time to understand her but to judge a book by its cover. I don’t mean everyone in that class is mean to her, just certain people ya know, but to her, it doesn’t matter anymore. Though she do talk to people sometimes, but you just know, she don’t belong to their group.

In the 3rd year, Samantha came as a transformed girl. She no longer wear  huge T-shirt, jeans and sandals to class, but she wears short skirt and high heels :). Everyone in class was staring at her including me. She looks kinda awkward but sure, she looks good :). All the boys in class for once, turned their heads at her, but the girls in class made fun of her more than ever and I think that was the reason why she reverted back to her old style.

In the 5th year, on the first day of class, she came with a whole new image. She wear high heels higher than any other girls in class and no, shirt and skirt are not more revealing =) But, she is much prettier compared to when she first came to our school. She had more confidence then, but you know, she is still stumbling to find her words and courage to speak up.

She then remained and kept quiet in class. Until the 6th year, which is also the final year, we had one final camp and she came by force. I talked to her and realized that she was still rather reluctant to talk to me. But the whole time, I insisted that we both should talk and I thank God that I did; because I didn’t, we wouldn’t have been friends till today =).

Everyone that has written about Samantha, has seen her cheerful and bubbly side. But as for me, I have never seen her being cheerful and bubbly throughout my schooling life with her. If she laughs, it will just be for a few seconds and then she’ll have that neutral face expression again. Overall, in everyone’s opinion, Samantha is this girl who is not cheerful, hard to approach and egoistic and in my opinion, if they have been nicer to her, things wouldn’t end up tragically for her.

I remember in the camp, we are all given a piece of blank A4 paper and we have to write about how we feel on that piece of paper. We’ll then paste it on the wall so that everyone can read. Guess what, she pasted up a piece of empty paper and it was a shock to all the facilitators but no one said anything but to view her as a problematic and secretive girl.

I remember clearly, after that event, everyone was to take their bathe and go for dinner. After dinner, I saw her sitting down alone by the badminton court, watching the sun setting slowly. I sat beside her and she was surprise to see me. And this is our very first conversation:

Me: Hey, what are you doing here all alone?

Samantha: Nothing?

Me: So you want to join them over there? [I am referring to our classmates who are having their dinner]

Samantha: No, but go ahead if you want to.

Me: Actually, why is your A4 paper empty?

Samantha: Because it’s empty la.

And it was so obvious that she didn’t want to talk to me at all. So, throughout the whole camp in camp, she was actually all alone and you can be sure that she is the happiest person when the camp came to an end :)… Then, we both graduated and left the place.

I’ve never heard from her ever since and I saw her after a few months and we talked for 30 minutes [For your information, it was the longest record that she talked to anyone of us in class]. I was very surprise to know that she went for National Service [Hence, the disappearance]. When I told her that no one probably knows that she went for National Service, she replied curtly:

Good la.

What is so good, I don’t know :)… But then, when our conversation ended, I asked for her number, E-mail address and she added on with her blog URL and it shocks me a lot when I read her blog. It’s like WOW~ My classmate whom ever girls regard as snobbish and cried in camp a few times and the girl that never smiles is such a different person actually 🙂

Then I know, she isn’t who I thought she was. We did find some time and chit chatted and I realized that she is actually a very nice person and as I get to know her, I get to know some of my classmates’ ugly side. When I ask her why didn’t she stand up for what she thinks is right, she just shrug it off and said:

Well, I’m used to it.

From what I’ve seen for myself and heard from her, I just realized that all this while she is just plainly and clearly hurt with what some people in class have done to her. Though she don’t appear to looks like one who will feel hurt just because you’ve ignored her, I think she does and I think she is just keeping quiet sometimes.

The other day I had a good chat with one of our schoolmate and when I mentioned Samantha’s name, she smiled and said – Yea, I remember her. The quiet quiet one in class, very hardworking, studious and umm… somewhat my friends and I don’t like her. And I never know why, but I can guess why.

Only this year, we became closer to each other and I get to know more about her; that is how I agree with what the other two friends of hers wrote about her 🙂

~*~

And so, this is the story of Samantha 🙂 A part of her life that perhaps no one has ever expected it to be.

The Girl

This post is about a girl. A girl who goes by the name of Samantha who doesn’t have the time to blog this week or maybe for the next few coming weeks =) So, you’ll be seeing different guest bloggers [her friends] as mysterious people blogging. And hello, I’m Mysterious Blogger [Inspired from Mysterious Writer] ^^|||. Don’t worry, I’ll make it nice, for all of you, not her >=).

I’ve decided to blog about her this week for a few selected reasons ^^ :

a) To add on more information to what Mysterious Writer  and herself had written about her/herself here and here.

b) You don’t know who am I.

c) You are not interested with my life affairs.

d) You want to know who am I, but you are not gonna know anything about me >=D.

~*~

I’ve known Sam ever since she is 13 and she is such a great friend to have. When I was first introduced to her, she was this rather chubby girl [with lots of baby fats on her cheeks, that’s why it is nice to pinch her cheeks and watch her jump >=D] who argues with me over all sort of nonsense and called me a Cool Cucumber because I said I was forced to swallow down a whole cucumber for a True Or Dare game and even have the guts to suggest me to create a new E-mail address with the name Aku Cinta Timun Sejuk when I was fuming with anger and made me go WTF and continued to make more jokes about cucumber.

My impression towards her is well… as mentioned by Mysterious Writer, yes, I personally think that she is WEIRD. As in super, duper weird. She talks non-stop, laughs a lot [even though it’s not funny and she’ll just give this giggle and then burst into laughter and infect everyone else], eats a lot, walks a lot, craps a lot, shops a lot [She is so desperate to the magnitude that she will go window shopping and start saying, “Why does pretty things appear when I don’t have the money?!”] and most of all, she PISS ME OFF a lot.

How?! YES, YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW! Just imagine someone miss calling you 10 times straight in a row in the middle of the night when you just told her that you are going to bed on MSN 5 minutes ago and I show you:

On MSN

Me: Heyz, gotta go sleep. Sleep early too PANDA.

Sam: Okay. Goodnight! Dream about me okay!

Me: WTF. NO! Sam = NIGHTMARE =) You’re the perfect definition for the word. Night.

An example of Nightmares in RO >=)

After 5 minutes, there was a SMS

Sam: Switch off your computer already ah?! 😀

Me: -_-|||… Yes. Why? If you want songs or anything, tomorrow la IF you are NICE to ME =) I need to sleep now, got class at 8 tomorrow. F**king timetable.

Sam: I just want to know if you will dream of me tonight =)…

Me: I said I WON’T. I don’t want to have a nightmare. WTF why am I still replying you?

Sam: Because I’m so adorable =)… Lalala~…

Me: *Ignores*

After 1 minute, another SMS arrives,

Sam: Have you brush your teeth?


Me: Yes I have. My dear Panda, I’m on my bed now. Goodnight. No more SMS ok?? Night and I mean it!!!

AND THEN SHE MISS CALLS ME 10 TIMES IN A ROW and when I scolded her on MSN the next day, she said, “You say no SMS what. Means miss call can la =D…” Zha dou! So annoying man I tell you!!

Another terrible one will be on random nights/day time [Especially if she knows your timetable well] she will send a SMS like this:

DEDICATE ME A SONG 😀

If she send this kind of SMS in the middle of the night, I’ll just stuff my phone under my pillow or I’ll just SWITCH OFF my phone =P. If I’m in a class, I’ll just shrug it off. If I’m free or have nothing else better to do, I’ll send her a reply like this:

Don’t Irritate Me For Heaven Sake, By For God’s Sake.

And then I don’t think I’m the only one who gets such a SMS. So if ANYONE of you ever receive such a SMS, don’t EVER, EVER reply her like this:

Don’t you have something else better to do?!

Because confirm she will start laughing at the other side of the phone for GOD KNOWS WHAT REASON [WTF, are you telling me yet?]. Don’t make her laugh. Make her speechless >=D.

When we are just friends, I don’t really care much about her existent because she is just someone that I know and in fact, I’ve somehow avoided her because sometimes she’s just… too weird that I don’t understand her at all. I don’t understand why she is disturbing me every single day of my life. I don’t understand why must she talk non-stop. I don’t understand why must she still disturb me even though I don’t even respond to her disturbance and shit, I just don’t understand anything about her at all.

When my friends ask me about her, I’ll just roll my eyes and say, “You mean that crazy girl ah??” Yes, she is sooooo crazy to the extent that when she goes karaoke, she actually switches off the microphone and sing =P

And when she sees any Lee Hom poster, she will turn and stretch her neck and look at him and pull your shirt and tell you that’s its Lee Hom and if you unlucky, she will start being dreamy about being his wife [Wake up woman!].

I am very amazed with how her brain actually functions. Because, one moment, she could be sitting down quietly and the next moment, when a light bulb lighted up in her head with a DING sound effect, she will be smiling and starts her project of disturbing others while laughing like a hyena.

Don’t EVER, EVER challenge her to walk into any male’s toilet with you because TRUST me, SHE WILL if she is in the mood and if you are unlucky and the toilet happens to be empty, she will start walking around the toilet and will even use the toilet and will smirk at you and talk about it all day long until you feel like slapping her. She is the exact kind of friend who will jump out of nowhere and appear in front of you if you just send a SMS that you are sad and if she’s nearby, she’ll POP IN and surprise you when you don’t expect her to turn up.

Not only that, she is also very talkative to the point that you are actually addicted to her stories that you’ll just listen to her non-stop and you will not have the mood to do anything else and after she hangs up with you on the phone, you just want to talk to her again. She can talk to you about anything at all and will listen to everything that you have to say. If you are her close friends, she will tell her every single interesting event that happens in her life and if you miss out some stories of her life, it simply means that she thinks/knows that you are not interested or she doesn’t like you anymore.

Okay, I think I’ve mentioned way too much about her bad points >=) She does have her good side too which actually compensates for her very annoying and playful character when she disturbs you. She is actually one of the nicest and greatest friend that I ever had [Please don’t FLOAT].

She inspires me in a lot way to be a much better person and she cares about the people who are close to her a lot even though they might not appreciate it. As stupid as it may sound, she even cares for people whom she holds close to her heart though those bunch of people are actually not worth caring for and she’ll just say that maybe one day they’ll appreciate it. You can walk away from her life but if she still holds you in her heart, you will realize that, if you ever need someone to hold on, her hand is always there to reach out for you.

But, I tell you about her from A-Z >=) [Sam, you’re soooooooo dead! >=) ]

a)  She is the craziest girl that you’d ever know in your whole life.

b) She shouts to you across the block/road just to get your attention or she jumps or start waving like a crazy woman and if you are unlucky =p, she will send you a flying kiss and shout loudly across the road that she loves you.

c) She can go around proclaiming to people that she is madly in love with you and you bloody know she is just joking and surprisingly, you will actually secretly enjoy what she is saying.

d) She can be the best supporter to you in your life or any decisions that you’ve made and she will give you the best advice if you ever need one.

e) She will shout at you if you annoy her [Especially if you pull her hair or poke her glasses, she hates that a lot >=) ] and will not talk to you until her anger and annoyance level is lowered [Which is about 2 minutes – 5 minutes  later =D ]

f) She will hold your arms everywhere she goes if she knows you. So don’t worry la, it’s normal of her to do that.

g) If she has promised you to do something, she will do it for you and if she fails to, she will give you a very good explanation and will somehow get it done sooner or later.

h) She cannot stand people who tell lies.

i) She is a good secret keeper.

j) She is a very good listener although she doesn’t looks like one.

k) She writes you lovely encouragement letter whenever she thinks that you need one [Hey, not everyone get to get one okay? =) Be grateful if you are one of them].

l) She will never forget the way you’ve treated her. So if you are nice to her, she’ll be very nice to you and if she loves you, she’ll forgive you for everything you’ve done. But if you say stupid things and make her upset and she doesn’t love you a single bit or she thinks that you are not worth of a friend anymore,  she’ll be harsh and the proverb a tongue wounds more than a lance, is the perfect proverb for this =)…

m) She takes every blow and criticism like a man and will just smile at you casually if you insult her but rest assure, she’ll go home and complain to everyone about it and then forget about it after 5 minutes.

n) She takes 5 hours to pick her clothes.

o) She knows what she should say to encourage you and will value any friendship as long as the other party is sincere.

p) She doesn’t know the meaning of GIVING UP and she will always stand firmly [too firm at times] on her point and will fight for what she thinks is right.

q) If you are her friend, especially her best friends, she will stand by your side till the end of any fight and will not back off at all. If anyone insults you, she will rationalize it and will tell you if there’s any truth it in and will ask you to not listen and will yell at that person back if it’s all a fib.

r) She is the BEST person to go shopping with. Because she will give you brutally honest comments that makes you feel like slapping her at first but thanking her later on LIKE THIS:

DON’T BUY THIS! It looks so ugly on you!

Don’t waste money la. Come on la, look in the mirror, you looks so fat you know! LOOK! I know that, you know that, even the mirror knows that!

Eiii, so ugly! Eh please la!

The shirt looks good but it doesn’t looks good on you. Forget it la.

It’s nice but RM70? Wei, don’t buy la. Not worth it you know. DO YOU WANT TO REGRET WHEN YOU SEE IT AT 50% 3 MONTHS LATER? No right? PUT IT BACK!!

*Close Eyes* Don’t hurt my eyes!

Take her for any shopping and she’ll be happy to be your fashion consultant and if you can’t make up your mind to find anything for any occasion, bring her to your house and let her pick for you =)

s) She will always give you her best, but will you give her your very best?

t) She is a very cheerful, happy and bubbly girl that brings smiles, happiness and laughter everywhere she goes. [Actually she is always smiling brightly whenever I see her]

u) She is very lazy in many aspects but you know it’s okay ‘cause she will not be lazy to talk to you or to help you.

v) The BEST person to play games with =) Because you’ll always win! HAHAHA! Unless she happens to be super good at it [WTF, DO NOT put up the O2 Jam screenshot unless you want me to put up the Gunbound one]

w) The only friend of mine who will wear the most ridiculous shirts and shoes in shopping malls and pose for your camera and proceed to laugh at herself.

x) The only girl who wears super HIGH high heels and walk around Mid Valley/One Utama/Sunway Pyramid and any shopping malls and can even RUN in it.

y) The only girl whom I know who takes off her super HIGH high heels in Mid Valley or anywhere when her legs are painful and put them in a plastic bag and start running to the exit if you are rushing her to be faster!! [I don’t forget this you know >=D ]

z) She is generally a very nice girl unless you’ve pissed her off [Then you must be the extreme case *Hint: Deleting phone number from her handphone. Blocking and deleting you off her MSN. Don’t even look at you or smile at you anymore. Don’t even care if you exist and treats you as an invisible person].

Last time, I used to see her as some girl in my life, but now, she is one of the nicest and greatest friends of mine in life. Don’t ever, ever walk out of my life and I will never walk out from yours >=) I’m very happy actually to have a friend like you despite all the times I’ve pretended that you didn’t exist for the fun of it =P and ignored you for the fun of it =P And I’m sure, you’ve brought many laughter, smiles and happiness into the peoples’ life whom you’ve walked into.

Sometimes, they might not show it or say it but to sneer at it telling you that it’s better for them to not know you, but deep down, they are grateful and thankful for your presence in their life even though it’s temporary because you just bring LIGHT and COLOURS in their life!

Okay, that is what I have to say about The Drama Queen [Because her life itself is a drama >=) ].

And I believe this is a much better and juicier post than what she had written about herself >=) >=D

-The Mysterious Blogger-

~*~

A little note for you dearest Panda:

When I first knew you, I thought that you are this very… weird, nerd-ish and strange girl. When I get to know you better for a day, I realized that you are just NOT who I thought you were >=) I thought that you are just extremely crazy, always happy, bubbly and always ready to give your “Hollywood star” smile to anyone you know.

There was one period of time where I rejected you from my life. I refuse to talk to you, I refuse to listen to you and I don’t want to be related to you in anyway because I don’t understand you at all. But still, I see you being happy, bubbly and everything else in between. And we just drifted away for a long time.

But there was a day, where we begin to talk again and you are still nice to me [I’m amazed actually >=) ] and you are STILL the SAME girl that I know, still that crazy, happy, bubbly and smiley. And this time, I just realize that we drifted away because I cannot accept our differences and I never want to understand you as a friend at all.

Nah, we are close friends now =D. You’ve taught me many valuable lessons in life, showing me what friends are for and most of all, you are definitely one of my friends who had brought light and colours into my life. I remember telling you that you are just some random girl friend in my life and I will remember you just because you are so weird and crazy like that.

Actually, I don’t mean it >=) You get my meaning >=)

This Is Someone You Know

Today, I’m on a mission to write about a very special girl by the name of Samantha Quek. Don’t be shock.. Yeah, I’m not the owner of this blog that you guys visit every week. This week post will be a little special as this is not Samantha blogging.. *Excited*

Let’s start off.. -deep breath-

First Impression:

Those who met Sam for the first time would have two possible thoughts:

1) “This girl is extremely… WEIRD!!” (The perfect word huh? Most of the guys would think of that)

2) “This girl is extremely fun! I like her.” (Most of the girls think like that)

Attempt to fly fail.

The word WEIRD pops up because she’s so different from others.

~She can talk non-stop for the first time she meets someone (even she know you don’t know who she is).

~Some of you might have experience this, she talks too much on MSN till you regretted giving her your MSN and to the extend, you decided to block her for a moment.

~She goes around bugging your life by jumping around, running around and disturbing you which makes you restless (guys or girls).

sam-blog-21

Stay away!!!

~You just can’t think of another word to describe such girl.

You know she is FUN because:

~She pranks you every single day of your life till you don’t know what she say is true or false. Of course, she never jokes with serious things.

sam-blog

~She talks about things which makes you listen to her for hours.

~You never met someone as fun as her before.

AND.. as you get to know her.. you realise, the word UNIQUE/ EXTRAORDINARY would be a more appropriate word to describe her.

In your days with her, you will realize that:

~She will do anything to help you IF she likes you.. If you annoy her, you better stay far far away from her.

~She is such a great friend that you will miss her if she doesn’t bug or disturb you for a day.

~She knows when to give advice and when to keep quiet by your side if you go to her when you’re sad.

~She will find a way to get the things you ask from her.

Some facts about Sam that each of you knows:

~She laughs and cries easily.

~You love her words (the way she express thing).

~She is a great writer which is why you visit her blog so often.

~She says “I hate you” directly to those she dislike.

~She tells you her secret when she trusts you.

~She gets excited easily over the smallest thing ever.

~You can tell her just about anything.

~She has her baby Ixus with her everywhere she goes.

img_8385

Yea, everywhere..=.=

~She doesn’t do her homework.

~She is not a good artist.

~She sleeps in class.

~She is good at playing online games.

~Self-proclaims herself as Lee Hom’s wife and God’s best creation [Female version]

Too much to write.. You shall find out more about her by yourself XD

Personally, I think Sam is a great friend that brings sunshine to everyone. I am so glad to have her as my friend (Don’t kembang Miss Samantha).

Everyone out there, I know, most of you are her very best friends who agree or disagree, who nodded or shook your head all the way when you read this post. Some of you knows her through online games, some of you knows her in school, some are her church friends, NS friends, childhood friends, some are her relatives or even her family members..

No matter how you know her, I’m sure you agree that she is a very very nice, sweet girl that you don’t want to lose. You might know more about her. So I hope to see more things about her that I missed out in your comments 😀
