A NOTE FROM THE EDITORS 

May starts off deceivingly with a one-day holiday, Labour Day. Ironically enough however, most of us probably spent this day of rest for all labourers labouring over our textbooks. It's that time of the year again, where you spend your nights falling asleep with your Sejarah textbook over your face or maybe drooling on your Chemistry notes, only to wake up in utter confusion and panic. Though most of us are no stranger to the aforementioned situation (or similar), the mere mention of exams has us all sweaty-palmed and panicky. 

Just as the theme suggests, we can expect a crazy month ahead for Cempakans. First and foremost, we've of course got our Mid Term exams coming up, which marked its first day for some already. Then there's Cempaka's annual Box Office Production, the Wedding Singer showing in between and for some, there's still interzone competitions. A streak of sports practices would follow, leading up to the combined Swimming Gala and Sports Day at the end of May. After which we can finally sit back and relax with the Mid-Year Holidays. 

When you take a step back and look at it all, you might just get the urge to shake your head and sigh at Cempaka's amazing ability to cram more activities in an already jam-packed month. Or, you might just feel like crawling under your blankets to hide out and hibernate for the rest of the month.  It's going to be a hectic month for sure, but that's what life is about - doing things. The buckets of sweat, sore throats and sunburnt skins will exhaust you but by the time it's over, you'll look back and say it wasn't so bad after all and you might even miss it. (I don't think we can say the same about exams unsurprisingly) Life is about learning, trying and doing things. Believe us, we understand what it feels like to just want to lay in bed and watch television shows all day. But, there's a time for everything. Experience and memories are invaluable and more often than not, the door to it will not invite you in twice.

We wish you the best of luck for surviving the manic month of May, no matter what your endeavour may be in: sports, academics or soul or perhaps even all three. Don't forget, it's also Teachers' Day and Mothers' Day! Be sure to thank the individuals who have been behind us every step of the way, and will no doubt continue to push us forward, especially in this manic month of May.

Best wishes, 
Amanda Lee & Chin Wye Mun.
