I remember during one of my study semesters back in college, I had to give a speech during public relations class about myself. I thought it was easy. I was feeling pretty confident that I could nail it with just a scrap of something I’ve scribbled last minute. And I fall flat on my face. Splat that!
I stammered and I couldn’t remember what I was supposed to say, my mind went blank and that’s it. I set myself up to see how a clown I was to everybody’s amusement. The lecturer, who appears to be sarcastically sympathetic (or sympathetically sarcastic) at that time asked me one question.
“Where did you get that English accent?”
“Err… from TV?”
Such naiveness deserved a rounding applause, don’t I?
But I don’t speak like that anymore. The accent is blardy annoying I know. Hah! Back to topic, I wanted to challenge myself in this year’s NanoWriMo, but judging by the amount of work on pending lane, I’ll give it a shot when one of those writer’s block moments strike again.
Btw, Bukit Panorama is nothing to shout about. But the hike is definitely a humbling experience I’ll never forget. Nice to catch up with Mother Earth again.
