Inter-class Debate 2008

after being dormant, my new post sounds a bit report-ish since I'll be reporting on the recent inter-class debate, organised by 'yours truly'.
In short, it went on from the 27th until Aug 2nd, in conjunction with English Week. The finals was held on the 8th at the SAc.
All in all, I was satisfied because it actually worked out despite everything. Pity I didn't have a camera to do any recording at that time.
at least, I can say that there is actually still hope for next year's debate team.

here's what went out through out the debate:

I can't really recall in detail, but basically, the motions for each debate were as follows...

PRELIMINARY ROUND
Round 1: THBT Beauty Is Better Than Brains
Round 2: THBT Fast Food Should Not Be Banned
Round 3: THBT Girls Should Play Football
Round 4: THBT Hand phones Are Better Than Computers
Round 5: THBT Homework Should Be Reduced

FINALS
THBT Reality TV Shows Must Be Banned

In the finals, it was 1 Lambda as Gov and 1 Beta as Opp.

Even though Lambda had a track record of 4/4 wins, against the odds, 1 Beta showed a more consistent performance than 1 Lambda on that day.

Okay, so the participation was only among Form 1 students, but you'll have to forsake the ill-spirit of Faris..(sigh)

Betrayed by the worst atrociously shameful mark of femininity, the shy, embarrassed, immature, self-conscious, awkward, school girl blush in the presence of a drop dead attractive member of the opposite sex. *facepalm* I'm gonna be fricking 21 years old, hormones, please stabilize.

If you have not read this book, get you hands on it quick!
Yes, I'm serious, it is that good.

why?
simply because it is unforgivingly, brutally honest.
What I love of this book is basically the fact that not a single word has gone to waste. Every single description is relevant, and makes for a pinpoint analogy of each scenario in the book. When you traverse each sentence, you already have an idea what the author is trying to portray in the way he describes what the characters do, wear, walk, talk. the simple gestures represent the very soul of the culture so imminently depicted in this book.
And the main character, Balram, seems so real that you could almost believe that he actually runs around in the streets, er, slums of India. The complexity of emotions and the inner turmoil he felt as he expresses his views on the issues.
The author's ideas of a new-age caste of small-bellied and big-bellied people and the Rooster Coop has been compellingly displayed along the storyline, and y…

Sang Bayu Membisikkan Rinduku Kepada Samudera Cinta-Nya

Menatap kebiruan
yang disulam hijau permata
hamparan keindahan luar biasa

Mutiara jernih
ibarat sungai yang berlari
membasahi pipi
sekali sekala jatuh ke pasir

bayu dingin yang mengelus
membelai-belai wajahnya yang lesu
muram dek cuaca yang mendung
awan-awan kelabu
membaluti langit yang biru,
suram di lubuk kalbunya

meronta-ronta hatinya
mencari nikmat ketenangan

meronta-ronta jiwanya
mencari kebenaran hakiki

ingin saja disapu
debu-debu penipuan
yang mengaburi pandangan mata hatinya

rindunya pada Kasih yang suci menggamit lagi

ampunilah hamba yang hina ini.
