PS, I'll be blogging about yesterday first, before I blog about Friday & Prom.
Is a man, still considered a man, when he snatches a lady's seat without asking?
Is a man, still considered a man, when he passes remarks of a 10 year old kid?
Is a man, still considered a man, when he raises his voice at a woman?
I would think, no. I would also think, that these "men" wouldn't exist. I would think, that its impossible to find these 3 things in ONE single "men". And notice I've used inverted commas. These "men" should be ashamed of themselves. Here goes.
I went to Ikea with Mom and Dad yesterday evening. We then proceeded to the cafe for some food and a break from all the walking. While Daddy and I went to get our food, Mom "guarded" the table. This guy, popped up with his try and sat opposite Mom (on my seat), and this is their conversation..
Mom: Excuse me, these seats are taken.
Guy glares at her indicating his unhappiness, and then he DRAGGED my chair over to the next table and plopped his tray down without even asking the people on the next table if the seats were available either.
Mom: Hey! You're dragging the chair away. I told you the seat is taken.
Guy: (In a raised voice) This is not your chair!
Mom: (Raising her voice back) I didn't say it was mine. I said you're dragging THE chair away!
Guy: Its still not your chair.
I happen to come back to the seat by then already and I heard what he said next.
Guy: If its your chair you can take it home.
Me: Stop being lame la.
This shut him up because Mom and I were throwing him dirty looks and he was merely disgracing himself, being lectured by 2 women. I cant believe he's actually a man. And he tries to act like some civillised educated guy. I wonder if he even understands english.
I went back to help Dad with the food and continued throwing him dirty looks again. He began gorging on his plate of chicken wings so quickly and left a couple of minutes later. Before he left, I said aloud, "I can't believe such guys exist. Their existence is a disgrace to all humanity.". And I meant it, he was a disgrace. Fancy snatching some 16-year-old's chair. He himself was about, what? He looked like he was in his late 20-s, approaching 30. Shame on him.
Prom was fun. I woke up that very day and rushed off to Simei Easpoint for my appointment with my usual hairstylist at 1pm. My hair was curled and side-sweeped. Michelle then came over to meet me at Eastpoint and I brought her to the same shop where I did my hair. Jaena then came later also. We had our hairs done in different styles. I wanted mine to be simple, and I felt it was, minus the glitter and stuffs. But I think the glitter actually brought out the design.
I then learnt that Erica and her friends were coming to the same shop and her appointment was at 3pm. We all saw her before we left with our hair done up.
Jaena and Michelle accompanied me to get my lipgloss, and Mich and me accompanied Jaena to get her shoes. While Jaena was fretting over her bag, I remembered my Aldo clutch at home. So she used my clutch instead. Save money and time. We then cabbed back to my house.
We all then rushed to get ready. We changed out of our casual wear and put on our dresses and applied out make-up. Mommy applied my make-up. Because I wanted something simple and light, I didn't see the need to get professional help. I initially wanted to go to The Make-Up Store, either that or Bobbi Brown's counter to get my make-up on. I think Mommy did a great job anyways. Mommy was so sweet, she rushed home from office to bring the 3 of us to prom, because it wasn't really convenient for us to walk to school in dresses and heels.
I wore Mommy's diamonds. And I kept touching my ears to check if the earrings were still there, my wrist if the bracelet was around, and my neck to make sure that the necklace was safe.
When we arrived at the gate, we did not dare to go in, for fear of being rejected at the gate. We then lingered behind the Guard House for a minute or two before entering. Surprisingly, we were allowed to go in. Mr Razak jokingly asked where's our ties, that we will not be granted entry without ties. We entered and stayed around the canteen for a while before proceeding to the hall.
In the hall, we played some games, had the Prom Queen and King contest, and towards the end many began dancing. But throughout the entire thing, Jaena, Michelle and me were busy taking photographs.
Hafiz asked me, why I wasn't on the dance floor. We then agreed that we weren't the dancing type. I felt that it wasn't appropriate to dance like the way they did because they were afterall, in dresses, and some, even in gowns. I felt that there was a need to uphold your image that night, especially when you're so nicely dressed. But, I figured that the rest who danced had fun, and having fun is probably the most important thing afterall (:
Towards the end, I began to get teary and I got Jaena and Mich teary too. I didn't want to leave my friends, by friends, I mean my true friends. True friends, who are still in this school. I didn't want to leave Alex, GX, Alan, Darryl, Jaena, Mich, and Joyna. I didn't want to leave any of them who have grown up with me since I was 13. I felt sad leaving Christian too. Especially Alex, because he was the one who accompanied me through half of my Secondary school life. Even though we don't really talk as much these days, I'll still miss him for everything. And Alan, and Darryl and everyone else. The guys tried to comfort me by saying they'll still meet me in ITE next year. Lol. I'll miss Joyna as well, although she wasn't at prom, becaue she's my best-est friend in this school and always will be. So, to Jaena, Mich and Joyna and Alex, and Alan and the rest of the guys, we'll always be BestFriendsForever (:
Anyway, Alex and Alan and te others promised me they'll keep in touch with me via MSN and SMS and everything else and they'll still go out with me if I date them :D
Mommy fetched the 3 of us back to my house after Prom. It was about 10.30pm when we got to my house and we were all famished, only because the buffet dinner at prom sucked. Thank God Lia was around, she cooked us noodles. Lol. I was talking to Hafiz while Mich was busy taking more pictures and Jaena was busy messaging some one. Lol. They stayed till past midnight and Dad sent them home at maybe about 1am in the morning? Hafiz and me then talked till 2+ in the morning before we were cut off because my battery died on us. Lol.
I believe Prom would be the most memorable evnt in our secondary school lives, if not in mine. Because to be honest I've been looking forward to prom the day I stepped into this very school, since Secondary 1.
I'll post some pictures, but I won't post the picture of Javern and me because I promised him I wont post it anywhere. Lol.
