Let's talk about American High School.

I leave for school around 7.30 a.m. School starts at 8 a.m. It ends around 2.16 p.m. My classes are (listed according to the period): U.S. Government, Dance I, Algebra II, Psychology, Ceramics I, Chemistry, English 12 and Mythology & Folklore.

I love the education system here because it is not 100% paper-based. I love the fun classes in school. I love bonfire. I love s'more. I love roasted marshmallow. Can I move my family and my homies here, instead of me flying back to Malaysia?

Again, I am blessed enough to get straight A's in SPM. Honestly I wished I get more A+, but I am still grateful for everything. Maybe because I am far away in…
