#249-Another Chapter Of My Life Closed

Well, as of yesterday, the SPM exams for me finished. What a relief! The whole exam was ok. On the first day it was BM 1 and 2 and Sejarah 1, they were all alright. 2nd day was English 1 and 2 and Sejarah 2. English was alright. Sejarah 2 was hard. Maths 1 and 2 on the 3rd day was quite easy. On the 18th of November (the 4th day), there was Add Maths and Moral. They were both hard. Chemistry, Biology and Physics were all moderate and as for the last paper of the whole exam, English for Science and Technology, it was easy.

So like I said, another chapter of my life closes yesterday at 3.15pm. The new chapter, however, just started right after that. It was home first, had a quick bath then it was off to Gurney Plaza. I stayed there, went to Starbucks, visited Switch and Charlie Communications. Then I met both Timothy and Shee Siang in Switch and we hung around for a little bit. At night, we had dinner at Sakae Sushi which was unfortunately, a bad experience.

After dinner, it was the time to.......you know.............buy my new lappie!!!! I got the Macbook Pro 15-inch 2.4GHz. IT IS A SUPER DUPER FREAKING AWESOMEEE LAPTOP!!! I will post the pictures I took and the unboxing video up later.

P.S. Sorry for the past few boring-no-pictures posts. This will be the last one and the photoblog will resume say, later today?

#248-New domain name!!

Well, well, well......Guess who recently joined in the ranks of nickchan.net, alvinyang.net, andyooi.com, yiphing.net and other young teen Penang bloggers with their personal domain name???

ME! Your one and only, yours truly. Whatever. I'm gonna give my blog a refresh and this is the 1st step. Following updates will be done after my SPM which ends in 2 weeks time. My blog has been with me since April 2008 and at around post #97 is I'm not wrong, I gave it the 1st refresh. I changed the blog template, gave it a new look and name and also I changed the link for thisismylifebitchh.blogspot.com to callmealexkhoo.blogspot.com.

Now, at nearly 250 posts, well 248 to be exact, I have changed the link of my blog again. This time I purchased a custom domain name through Blogger's services and the process was very easy. My new URL link / domain name is,

http://www.alexkhoo.net

You can still type in callmealexkhoo.blogspot.com and it will direct that URL to my new one so no worries. But I do advice friends of mine to relink me. Oh and I bought the domain name with my MOL Freedom prepaid Mastercard.

#247-Reality

Over these past few months, I've come to realise that time will past by fast if you don't do anything productive. It was like just yesterday was January, and now it is November. The number of days leading to SPM is now 6, down from say, 200+ just a few months ago. A lot of things have happened this year and some friendships have been mended too. My dog passed away just last Saturday after a whole morning of listening to Buddhist chanting by my late grandmother. After months and months of waiting, I've passed my 17th birthday and now I possess my L license. In just a couple of months time, I'l be over in the UK for college. Prom is in about a month's time. It's been 5 months since I drove my dad's friend's BMW 645ci. My new W300 camera is now 4 months old. It has been 7 months since I started my blog and also my dinner date with Nat. 9 months since the BSB concert in Sunway. My strained relationship with Hubert is mended through the end of school. And I also realised on the last day of school, I may not see some of my friends anymore, bar the SPM time.
