:: Dorm party October 26, 2007Posted by Minci 先生 in Everyday Life.
I don’t remember why the annual dorm parties were banned in school but I do know that our dorm was one of the few who decided to go against the rules and threw it anyway.
Together with other girls in my year, the task of decorations and games were in our hands. So 7 minds brainstormed hard before the occasion and we managed to come up with a wonderful theme. Well, the only thing that comes to mind now is the fact that we had red transparent plastic wrappers secured around the lights.
We did enjoy our party and tried to keep the noise down. Word must have gotten to the warden for it wasn’t long before one of the random messengers came running to our dorm warning us of the warden’s intention to do a spot check. Other dorms have been alerted as well.
Now, my dorm is huge and could fit nearly 50 people in it. Therefore, it was quite an impossible task to clear things up like the more smaller dorm and pretend anything ever happened. I suppose all of us were just in ‘Pasrah Mode’ at the time and was quite ready to be punished. So, we lingered.
2 wardens came. Both were petite and fierce. It was the usual pep talk about being ‘degil’, ‘suka yer kena marah’, kenapa?’ sort of thing which is then followed by A Punishment.
“Saya nak awak semua meniarap di lantai!”
(I’d like all of you to lie flat on the floor, facing the ground)
Everyone did just that, wondering what’s going to happen next.
(In a circle!)
Ouch.. high pitch! high pitch! OK.. no arguments. Everyone obliged and wiggled on the cold cement floor into position.
Hah.. like how? So we did our own styles of swimming. At the same time, trying to figure out if this was the correct ‘swim’ they wanted. All of us fixed our tummy on the floor, raised our back legs and moved our arms. Most people did the normal one arm after the other swing but yea.. a few of us clowns did the butterfly and frog swim when the wardens were not looking. This went on for a few minutes (it felt like hours though) before the warden screamed again, (i’m pretty sure they enjoyed the sight of us like that)
“Eyy.. kenapa berenang tak gerak nih? Geraklah.”
(Eyy..why are you not moving. move)
Anyway, we managed to complete a few ‘laps’ before the warden finally told us to stop and clean up the mess. We thought we saw them trying to hide a smile. Eleh.. cikgu nih. Eksen jer. 😛
School years are fun. Perhaps next time I’ll tell you about the intruders. 😉
