Escape

Hello, just returned from vacation last Saturday, the 27th. Sorry it took so long to update, I just didn't have the mood to blog lately, just got it back today.

So how was Egypt you ask? One word: AWESOME. I think many would be surprised to know that Egypt has 4 seasons therefore its winter there now and let me tell you, it was COLD! There was one day where it rained (it only rains 3 times a year there), and it was FREEZING on that day. Seriously. So enough about the weather. I was there for about 9 days and it was still not enough to see everything. The country's famous history and civilization never failed to take my breath away. I couldn't believe my eyes when I first saw the Great Pyramids at Giza, the Seventh Wonder of the Ancient World. Those structures were HUGE! Each stone that was used to build the pyramid was really big and they weighed several tonnes. The stones were not even from around Giza, they came from Aswan which is several hours away! Can you imagine how the ancient Egyptians transported those huge blocks of stone in 5000 B.C.? Its beyond imagination, I know. Oh oh and I went INSIDE a pyramid! It was quite an experience since the tunnel was really small and narrow, so you had to duck really low and it was sloping downwards. It was quite a long way down too, several metres I think. And there was only one way to go in and out, so we had to stop halfway several times to allow people to go back out. The inside of the pyramid was just basically a rectangular-ish room which used to house the Pharaoh's sarcophagus and such, but its empty now since it has all been brought to the museum. It was really hot down there by the way. All in all, it was an amazing experience, and quite an exercise too! :)

The Egyptian Museum was also breathtaking. You wouldn't believe the amount of artifacts there are in there! We didn't even get to see all of them since we followed a tour group and the time was quite limited, but I got to see all the highlights; namely the famous King Tutankhamun's treasures (he was buried with over 20kg of gold!), and I even went into the Royal Mummies Hall! I couldn't believe that I actually laid my eyes on the mummies of the famous Queen Hatshepsut (we learned about her in History, remember?) and of course, King Ramses II, probably the most famous Pharaoh of all, the Pharaoh of Nabi Musa A.S. The Pharaoh of Moses! Can you believe it?? He was perfectly preserved too, some of the female mummies even had their hair intact! Truly, truly amazing. I think it would take like, 2 days to fully see and appreciate everything in the museum.

Probably the best part of the whole trip was the Nile Boat Cruise. I had my doubts initially, sorry to say, especially about the cleanliness of the Nile River, since I spent my whole life in a country where clean rivers simply don't exist, but I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the Nile is CLEAN. Evidence? The water was blue, not the typical teh-tarik colour. There definitely wasn't any rubbish in it, no rubbish on the banks, either. And since its the longest river in the world, it made me wonder, if the Egyptians can take good care of it, why can't we do the same for our rivers? They are extremely proud of their beloved Nile, and rightly so, too. The Boat was so much fun! The room was small, but sweet. The best part was the deck, we would just sit there all day and look at the breathtaking view. There was this ping-pong table to occupy ourselves with, and even a little swimming pool. It was really windy up there and they would serve tea everyday at 4pm. The Boat would stop everyday at several attractions such as Karnak Temple, Hatshepsut Temple and Kom Ombo Temple (where we saw the sunset, which was so beautiful), along the banks of Luxor. We had a guide along the way named Abang Hosny and let me tell you, his knowledge of Ancient Egypt is so vast! He's like a walking Ancient Egyptian Encyclopedia! It was fascinating to hear his explanations about the Pharaohs and Gods and architecture of Ancient Egypt. Its mind-boggling how he can memorize all those stuff. The temples were brilliant too btw, the pillars, columns and obelisks simply amazing. To think that they could build such structures thousands of years ago (which always makes me wonder, where was Malaysia during that time period? My mum said probably a few prehistoric animals existed here, or maybe those Manusia Zaman Paleolitik, hahaha).

Oh yes I almost forgot, the biggest attraction in Egypt after the Pyramids, the Valley of the Kings. The view of the Valley itself was wonderful, the limestone hills and sand dunes looked beautiful. We went into 3 tombs, Ramses the Ninth, Thirteenth and Seventh (I think), and need I say it again? It was awesome of course! Their tombs were huge! And the most amazing part was, all the drawings and hieroglyphics on the walls were still intact, colour and all! As you walk in through the tunnel, you could see to your left and right and also up (yes, they painted the ceiling too, eat your heart out Michelangelo), these intricate drawings and carvings of the Pharaoh's journey in the afterlife. I'll remind you again, the colour was still there, bright as ever, after thousands of years. As you entered the main chamber, you'll see the sarcophagus that used to house the Pharaoh's mummy, and of course, more full-coloured drawings on the wall. My mum, brother and I entered the most famous tomb of all, KV 62, King Tutankhamun's tomb, where his mummy and golden coffin still lies. His burial chamber actually pales in comparison to those of the Ramses', it was quite small and there were not much drawings on the walls. But what made him so famous were the amount of treasure that they found together with his mummy. You see, the earlier tombs were mostly already ransacked by the time the archaelogists found them, mostly by tomb robbers who robbed the tombs of their treasures. But King Tut's tomb was somehow overlooked, therefore he was discovered together with all his treasures still intact. So can you imagine the amount of treasure that the bigger tombs would have contained had they not been robbed? And again, I could not believe it when I laid eyes on King Tut's famous golden coffin, which has now become a symbol of Ancient Egypt. It was quite beautiful actually, very detailed and intricate. And King Tut's mummy! He was really small, since he became King at age 9 or 10, and he was also buried hastily, hence his body wasn't as well preserved as the others. Still amazing, nonetheless.

I also visited the Nubian village, located on one of the several Elephantine Islands around the Nile River. The Nubians are a people closely related to the Sudan people, since they live close to the Sudanese border, they look more African than Egyptian, and even have their own language, food and customs. Their mud houses were so cute, they were painted in nice bright colours, and everyone there was nice and hospitable. We went there by Fellucca, this sort of sailboat which was quite scary actually, haha. It was overall a fun experience, learning about new people and their customs.

Our last day was spent in Cairo (we went back to Cairo from Aswan by sleeping train, which was best gila jugak), learning more about its Islamic history. We visited several mosques, such as Ali Pasha (the first King of modern Egypt) Mosque, Al-Azhar Mosque and Imam Syafie Mosque, where we saw and prayed at his tomb. It was quite a feeling, being there in the presence of your Imam, whose Mazhab and hukums you have been following all your life. We then went to the famous Khan El-Khalili bazaar. It was really big, you can get lost in there! They sold mostly authenthic Egyptian stuff, but sadly I couldn't really enjoy it since I had an upset stomach at the time, hehe. It was on that day when it was freezing cold.

A big part in what made the trip so great was the people too. Since it was my first time following a tour group, I really didn't know what to expect, but I certainly did not expect to get close to most of them! Our Malaysian tour leader, Kak Maria, was so sweet, we shared a cabin in the train and she's really a cool person. Kak Ina and her brother Amir were also nice, so was Nurul from Singapore. And..our Egyptian tour leader over there, Abang Sherif, was also very sweet and we actually owe it to him for bringing us together (ehem, for further reference on this matter, please take a look at my pictures in Facebook and MySpace, hehe). Abang Sherif, as well as our tour guides Abang Hosny and Abang Wahyu took good care of us and made us all feel welcome. Oh and the party on the boat! It was so much fun! The games..and the dancing..hehe I can't believe I actually danced. Hehe. Best gila.

After everything I saw in Egypt, I realized that if an Egyptian should come to Malaysia, I would have no idea where to bring them to. Observe this conversation we had:

My mum: "Sherif, you must be very proud of being Egyptian, your history is amazing."

Abang Sherif: "Yes, of course I am proud!" (smiles proudly)

Me: "Malaysia is nothing compared to Egypt, we only have, what, 600 years of recorded history? You guys go back thousands of years!"

Abang Sherif: "Yes, thousands.." (smiles proudly again)

And Cairo of course has its flaws, but I always believe at looking at the positive side of things. Like I said previously, Malaysia can really learn from the Egyptians how they maintain the cleanliness of the Nile despite it being such a major tourist attraction (you would think it would be filthy right, considering so many cruise boats and felluccas full of tourists pass through it everyday). And all of Egypt's tourist sites are really well taken care of, and the tickets to each place is also uniform, which means they take a lot of pride in giving the best to their tourists. The way Abang Hosny guided us through the tour was also a clear indication on how proud they are of their majestic history and how they work hard to preserve it.

My previous blog post was kinda depressing, I know, and it was posted just before I went to Egypt. But Egypt made me forget about everything I said in my last blog post. I forgot for a while about whatever that was making me sad here in Malaysia, so I guess it was a sign that I truly enjoyed myself. And I truly hope to go back there someday, especially since there's still so many places that I didn't go to, namely Alexandria and Sinai (where the historic Mount Sinai, the place where Nabi Musa A.S. got his first wahyu from Allah, is located). I also sincerely hope that the friendships I have made on this trip would last forever, be it with the people in Egypt or here in Malaysia. To everyone who made the trip possible, thank you so much for giving me the best holiday ever, do take care and keep in touch! :):)

Teardrops on My Guitar

I don't even want to feel angry. I don't even want to feel upset or sad. I just wanna feel indifferent. Like Bree from Desperate Housewives said, "The opposite of love is not hate, its indifference". Because feeling something, anything, would mean that i care. And caring was what got me to this state in the first place. Because when you care for someone, you create reason to get hurt when that someone doesn't care for you back.

Sometimes I ask myself, why do I bother? Why do I return his calls and reply his messages the second I get them? Why do I answer his calls no matter how late at night it is? Why is he the first thing I think about when I wake up and the last before I go to sleep? And then the answer comes to me. Its not merely the fact that I love him, I realized that some part of me holds a shard of hope that maybe, just maybe, if I showed him how much I care, maybe that feeling would be reciprocrated. Which is extremely pathetic, I know.

But wait, it gets worse. Because there were times when he made me feel so..special, so appreciated, like I meant the world to him. I told myself maybe he was just trying his best to be a good friend. And initially I was okay with that, I told myself, well, at least he's sensitive enough. But its worse because when he doesn't treat me that way, it makes me miss those times so much. It also somehow makes me feel that everything was fake, that maybe he was doing it out of pity alone and not because some part of him did truly care about me.

To those who truly know the reason behind me feeling like this, maybe you guys think I'm being overly dramatic. But recent events was somehow the climax of everything that's been going on with him lately. Actually, after knowing the truth about a month ago, I know I should be on my 'moving on' stage by now. But turning back on your heart isn't that easy. Especially when he's so damn confusing (I won't go into details about that here since I'm sick of talking about it).

The heart is a precious thing. That's why I'm reverting back to my old philosophy, to not let anyone near enough to my heart until they can touch it, because when they can touch it, they can break it.

"And there he goes, so perfectly, the kind of flawless I wish I could be."

I'll be on hiatus for 10 days. Don't ask me why.

Scary Stuff

Reading Nadira's recent post reminded me of something: there is nothing else that I know I want to do in university besides Law. Is that a good or bad thing? I guess in a way its good because I have a clear idea of what I wanna do in my life right now, and I guess its bad because one should always have options, in case Law doesn't work out? Geez, I dunno. My favourite subjects in school were English, History, Chemistry and Literature in English, which I took as an extra subject. Note that Chemistry is the only Science subject included, because simply it was the only Science subject I like (I love it, actually), hence it was also the only Science subject I was ever good at. I found Chemistry far easier to understand compared to Physics and urgh, Biology, and also I think my cool Chemistry tuituon teacher, Cikgu Taufik, made the subject really fun and easy for me.

I was looking through this book called 'A-Z Explained Courses' which I got at one of our school's career fair thingys and found out that the only courses that interest me besides Law was English, History and Chemistry. Now here's the problem. I would absolutely love to do English or History, but my dad would never let me. You see, my dad is quite a money-minded person and he has always had a vision of his daughter working at a big law firm or becoming one of those hotshot corporate lawyers carrying a briefcase and having a company-sponsored chauffeur driving me to work. What else can you do with an English or History degree in Malaysia besides being a lecturer? My mum and I have no problems with that but my dad would never hear the end of it. I would also love to do Chemistry, but this poses even more problems. Firstly, to do a degree in Chemistry, I must first take Biology, Physics and also Mathematics (eeeww!) during my A-Levels, and there is no way in hell I am doing all those subjects again, 2 years of torture was enough to scar me for life. Secondly, again with the career path. I don't mind lecturing, but my dad, no way. In this case the first problem is bigger than the second one. So unfortunately, I've gotta rule out Chemistry. I miss the subject by the way, and also those fun times during tuituon with Zay, Low and Cikgu Taufik..

So in the end it leaves me with Law. Don't get me wrong, it has always been something that I really wanna do, its just..English, History and Chemistry do interest me as well. I guess my path towards doing a Law degree would include English and History because I will be taking English Literature and History for my A-Levels. But there is no way for Chemistry. Its different altogether, Law is an Arts and Chemistry is a Science. Hmmm.

On another topic, I submitted my Volunteer Application Form to Petrosains yesterday! Huhuhu. I really hope I get it since the very reason I refused to go for the A-Levels January intake was because I wanted to experience new things before I went off to college, and a job is one of them. I sent my resume to Kinokuniya as well, which is my dream place to work part-time by the way, the feeling of being around all those beautiful new books is indescribable. I sent it in more than a week ago I think, and sadly, until now, they haven't called me yet. Mummy tried to comfort me by saying maybe they have too many applicants for the job, and they employ on a first come first serve basis. I knew I should have sent it in earlier! I really wanna work there, everytime I walk by I would look at the place longingly and fantasize about how cool it would be to be able to work there :( Oh well, I hope I get the Petrosains position, it really isn't bad, its called volunteer work but you do get paid, and furthermore, you're allowed to choose what days you wanna work! Cool right? Huhu.

Everyone also seems to be going for their driving license lately. I really want mine too but I'm just terrified at the idea of driving a manual car with a total stranger breathing down my neck! I mean, how am I supposed to practise? All the cars at home are automatic, and they look so easy to drive! Start the car, naikkan handbreak, tekan minyak, and drive! Whereas a manual car needs so much thinking! My dad keeps on trying to teach me:

"Bila start kereta je tekan clutch and masuk gear 1, bila you rasa kereta dah steady sikit tekan clutch masuk gear 2, bila dah steady lagi tekan clutch masuk pulak gear 3. Bila nak slow down masuk balik gear 2. Jangan lupa tekan clutch everytime nak tukar gear. Gear 1 tu only bila start kereta and nak stop bila dah habis."

The whole time I was like "Banyak betul benda nak pikir! Tekan clutch lah, tukar gear lah, aaaahh!", and my dad would say "Hey, your Physics and Addmaths tu lagi susah daripada bawak kereta eh, bawak kereta senang je!" and I'm like "Kereta auto senang lah, ni manual!" then my mum, always backing me up, would say "At least Addmaths and Physics tu takdela mati serta-merta kalau tak pass, kan. Ni bawak kereta, lupa tekan clutch ke tukar gear ke, haaa mati terus," Hahahaha spot on mummy! I really need to go back to Klang and practise driving using my aunt's manual Wira Aeroback before I have any hope of driving at all. Sigh.

Wow I think this is my longest post so far. I doubt you even had the patience to read all of it. Haha.

A Night to Remember

Since my last post was just pictures from the prom, I figured I should say something about the event too, because it was truly nice and memorable, huhu :)

If I seemed awkward in the dress I was wearing, well..it was because that night was the first time in like, 11 years since I last wore a dress. Seriously. Haha. So I was kinda (ok, really) nervous about putting it on since I was afraid I was gonna look like a freak or something, and thank God, it turned out pretty okay. Haha. My initial attempt of putting on a hairband in an effort to do something with my boring hair didn't work out though, since the stupid hairband was starting to gimme a serious headache halfway through. I thought I wanted to tahan until the end of the night, but my friends were like "Cabut je la Aira!", haha. Oh well, it could've been worse, right? I mean, I could've tripped and fell since I was wearing heels, and I could even have spilled food on my dress, which I do very often, as a matter of fact. All in all, I was quite pleased with myself :)

The event itself was nice..the food was great, it certainly satisfied my rumbling stomach since we were allowed to eat only at 9 pm. It wasn't a lavish extravaganza like what you see in those American tv shows, but hey, they're called tv shows for a reason right? I guess my real-life prom experience was pretty good, at the end of the night I realized what mattered the most was the people I was with, my dearest friends :) Each of them looked great by the way, I think everyone noticed in the pictures at my last post how Dan, Bazil and Rifdi turned up with the same shirt and tie, and it still amazes me how guys can get away with wearing the same thing to prom! I can't even begin to imagine the chaos that would ensue if two girls turned up to prom wearing the same dress, let alone three!! I guess boys have it so much easier for them huh. Its so unfair.

Ooohh and I was also very proud because I voted for Zayana to win the best dressed award, and she won! Huhu she deserved it because she really looked great :)

I guess it was a night we will all remember forever, do take care and keep in touch everyone!

Jonas Fever


My Jonas mania is back! It sort of hibernated for a while during SPM, but now it has awakened, fresh and ready to go. Hahahaha. I think they're like the first band that I really got passionate about, I bought their album and I have like, 3 posters of them on my bedroom wall. That has never happened to me before. I love them, everything about them. Their clean-cut image especially. The music industry is already too full with pill-popping drug addict alcoholic homosexual sex-maniac freakos that the Brothers are truly a breath of fresh air. Isn't it nice to see that it is possible to be famous in Hollywood, have psycho screaming teenage girls after you, and yet still maintain a down-to-earth, family-oriented, and most importantly, chaste image? I think they set a good example to those freakos in showbiz right now, who mostly are a lot older than them, in fact. They also set a good example to those who are just starting to go into this showbiz thing, how they should behave, and how its possible to be famous yet still maintain good morals and have strong family ties. Huhu.

When are they coming to Malaysia?? I WILL NOT miss their concert for the world. Seriously.

And to further emphasise on how much I love them, I wrote about them for my essay for the SPM trials. Hahaha, I thought it was hilarious actually, and was kinda embarassed that Nabil read it, but whaddaheck, Pn. Mohanah liked it and I even got an A band for it! I will of course not go into details about what I wrote here, its too funny, haha.

Oh and have you seen how they look? They're adorable and hot at the same time. I love their style, that sort of preppy, somewhat vintage, old school thing, its so cool, and I hate to see some Malay guys in Malaysia trying so hard to copy that "Jonas look", you know, skinny jeans, cardigan and tie, along with the scarf, I mean, you gotta look like the Brothers to pull it off man. No offense, but it just doesn't work on you. It doesn't. Full stop. And it looks even sillier in our humid weather. I've yet to see a Malay guy who can copy their style and look good while doing it.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhh..nak jumpe Jonas Brothers!!!!!

Soundtrack

To those Twilight fans out there, if you thought the movie was good, you should listen to the soundtrack. Its awesome. Especially Decode by Paramore. You can somehow imagine Edward and Bella while listening to it. Huhu. Another one is I Caught Myself, also by Paramore. Serious best!

You know there are some songs that are so sweet they make you go.."aaaaaaaawww!" kan? Well here are a few songs that I think are superbly sweet:

1. Istimewa - Indigo
2. Sempurna - Gita Gutawa
3. Lucky - Jason Mraz ft. Colbie Caillat
4. Belaian Jiwa - Innuendo

I went to my second cousin's wedding last week, and they had this slideshow where they showed the bride and groom punye, like, early life and stuff, and Sempurna by Gita Gutawa was the background music. Sumpah sweet gila! My cousin and I were like, swooning all the way, haha. What makes it even sweeter was that the pengantin were childhood sweethearts, there were pictures of them holding their high school nametags and that was like, super duper sweet!! How nice, to be able to find the person that you're gonna spend the rest of your life with in high school. You would think that stuff like that only happens in movies, but apparently there are some lucky people who experience it in real life too. Maaann, wish it could happen to me..

Yeah, dream on Aira.

All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone


I just started watching One Tree Hill reruns again, since I have some season 4 episodes in this computer and I realized how much I miss the show. Its the only tv show that I follow religiously, season after season, and I'm proud to say I've seen every single episode from season 1 up to season 5. Currently downloading season 6 but I have no idea why the stupid Ares is taking so long. Sigh. But I have to say that One Tree Hill was the best when the gang was still in high school, that is, up to season 4. Season 5 was great too of course, its just..the high school seasons were better, I think. Maybe because I could relate to them more. Or maybe because they were more meaningful.

There are many reasons why I love One Tree Hill. I tried following other shows, like Gossip Girl, but none strikes me like how One Tree Hill does. OTH has meaning..I particularly love the quotes in the show, usually done as voice overs by my favourite character, Lucas Scott. And Lucas..if anyone asked me what my definition of a perfect guy is..I'll say, Lucas Scott from One Tree Hill. He's tall, gorgeous, sensitive, nice, athletic, and he loves literature! I mean, where else can you find a guy who's a jock and loves literature at the same time? The way he looks at Peyton sometimes..its like..you can melt in his gaze. Seriously. And he really loves his mom. I like guys who love their moms. And I love the fact that he and Haley can be so close yet still remain best friends, never anything more. Isn't he absolutely perfect? I guess that's why he only exists in a tv show. Sigh.

I also find OTH relatable and more down-to-earth compared to other tv shows. Shows like 90210, Gossip Girl and The O.C. are cool, I admit, but they're just too...glossy for me. Everybody's rich, they live in mansions and everybody wears Prada and Chanel and carries Coach handbags, I mean, my life surely isn't like that. Don't get me wrong, I do drool over Blair's outfits in Gossip Girl, but it does get too much at times. I prefer looking at Brooke's outfits in OTH. They're gorgeous, and they look more affordable. Haha. And not to mention Sophia Bush is gorgeous too.

Luqman told me they're airing season 5 on 8TV right now. I've seen the whole season, but still, its One Tree Hill. Nothing wrong with reruns. Huhu. I love the show to death, always will =)

“Tree Hill is just a place somewhere in the world. Maybe it's a lot like your world, maybe it's nothing like it. But if you look closer, you might see someone like you. Someone trying to find their way. Someone trying to find their place. Someone trying to find their self. Sometimes it seems like you are the only one in the world who's struggling, who's frustrated, or unsatisfied, or barely getting by. But that feeling's a lie. And if you just hold on, just find the courage to face it all for another day, someone or something will find you and make it all okay. Because we all need a little help sometimes. Someone to help us hear the music in the world, to remind us that it won't always be this way. That someone is out there. And that someone will find you.”

Joining the club.

Ahaa. Why blog you ask? Well, firstly..SPM is over. As much as I hate to admit it, staring blankly into empty space does get to you after a while. Haha. There's practically nothing to watch on tv these days (to Rifdi, if you're reading this, you'll know what i mean in a few years), and my days are spent reading novels, mostly. Which is great btw, although one does need to keep in touch with technology every now and then. Which brings me to my second reason to start blogging. I figured it could be fun sharing my thoughts with the world (if the world even bothers, haha), and just keeping people up-to-date with my uneventful life. Well I guess blogging is a good way for me to just, you know, vent. Haha. Its free anyway.

So enough about the reasons why I wanna blog. Lets start rambling. Okay.

SPM ended for me last Thursday, the last paper being EST (I know, those folks at the Examination Board are so nice) and luckily for us, the report writing part was easy. Especially for us Bio students. Huhu. Initially I was estatic about leaving school. I was sick of Addmaths and Bio..and I was just sick of the monotony of school, you know. Waking up, bathe, seeing the same people every day. The unbelievable pressure of exams. But alas, as EST ended that Thursday, I couldn't help but feel sad that school was coming to an end. 5 years of being a Melawatian. Wow. It was sad to know that I wouldn't be seeing these kids and teachers that I have seen almost every day for 5 years anymore. To be honest I'd miss the teachers more. Technology nowadays makes contacting friends much easier (and not to mention my parents letting me go out after SPM, hehe). But teachers..those amazing, selfless people who never tire of educating, no matter how terrible we teenagers are, when else are we gonna see them? I miss them already. My tuition teachers too =(

On a happier note, Belle, Zay, Dan, Rifdi and I went to see Twilight yesterday. I know I know, practically every teenage girl's blog is talking about how awesome the movie was right now, so I'll just join in. Hehe. Although I haven't finished the book yet, I must say, the movie was AWESOME. And that Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen..awww maann. What else can I say? Belle and I started squealing the moment he appeared on screen. Gorgeous. Flawless. As heavenly as how Stephenie Meyer described in the book. Hehehehe. Now every girl wants a vampire for a boyfriend. Huhu.

It was also a day of releasing my inner child (if you ask my close friends, that doesn't happen very often, haha). The KLCC playground was fun, especially since Dan brought his camera. Toys'R Us (damn macam mane nak eja?) was fun, there was this HSM 3 notebook which was like, lawa gila, tapi I was like agak malu nak beli with Belle and the others there. Hehe. Its okay notebook, I'll get you one day. C'mon, Belle bought Play-Doh and that Santa hat, I don't see what's wrong with a HSM 3 notebook. It has Zac Efron on it! Oh and that "card" at Memory Lane which freaked Zay out. Haha. Maybe I'll get that for her birthday. Yeah, brilliant idea =)

Thanks for a great day guys. Miss your company already =(
