Yes, unexpected.
At the end of the day, I kept wondering, "Why did all these happen?"

Okay, here's how everything started:
This morning, I have 2 classes, which was IELTS and English Literature.
I woke up 10 minutes before class.
The first class started at 8.30am.
I went to the bathroom and shower.
I came out at 8.40am.
I told Amal that I'll be going to class at 9am.
She agreed to go late with me.
When it was time, we both went. (Fiona wasn't going.)
Unexpectedly, Mr. Gan did not say, "Good afternoon." to the both of us.
He always says that when his students are late.
He was expecting around 6 students to attend his class, but there were 18.
After we took our seats, Amal told me that Johnathan didn't come to class since his seat was empty.
So, we proceed with class.
Class ended at 10.30pm.
Those who didn't come for IELTS, burst in through the doors to get in.
Mr. Gan asked us to take a 5 minutes break.

I went back to my room.
I was lying on the bed and when I looked at my clock, it was already 10.50pm.
I was late again. I was on break for 20 minutes.
It felt as though as a minute just passed.

I quickly went up the stairs to class and when I reached class, the class had not even started.
So, we were going to answer some questions on the board and present our presentation.
Bla, bla, bla!
It was time for presentation.
Mr. Gan asked, "Who wants to go first?"
Amal pointed me and Johnathan's gang said, "Johnathan!"
Then, Elena said, "Karen first, then Johnathan."
I felt something was wrong.
Unexpectedly, Elena went first.
After her presentation, I don't know who was presenting next, me or Johnathan.
I looked to where Johnathan was sitting and I heard him saying, "我还没有准备好。" (I am not ready), while going through his file.
But he went in front and present.
His focus was "Sacrifice."
When he was presenting, I didn't want to look at him.
I heard Fiona saying, "Look in front."
While he was presenting, Mr. Gan kept saying, "We already know that."
Mr. Gan also said, "If you have a teacher like this, what will happen to the students?"
Amal answered, "Fail!"
I laughed.
I shouldn't have done that.

After Johnathan finished presenting, it was my turn.
I went in front and stated:
1. Presentation 1 or 2
2. My topic
3. My focus

When I said my focus was "Love is blind."
Everyone kept quite. Literally.
I sensed something was wrong again.
I started talking about my presentation and Fiona laughed.
I know why she laughed. It was as though as I was talking about Johnathan.
Well, I wasn't.
After finished presenting, the presenter has to ask the students a question.
My question was, "Do you think love is blind? Why?"
Mr. Gan asked me to choose someone.
I saw Fiona laughing, so I chose Fiona.
Mr. Gan asked her, "Fiona, what do you think? Do you think love is blind?"
Fiona: "Based of my life, as her roommate, love is very blind."
The whole class laughed.
I was starting to think that she was trying to exposed about me having a crush.
Mr. Gan: "Very blind?"
Fiona: "Not very blind, but blind."
Mr. Gan: "Why?"
Fiona: (Looking towards me) "Do you really want me to answer?"
Me: "NO! Thank you. Catherine?"
Wei Jian: "No, I want Fiona to answer."
Catherine: "Sheldon Cooper is talking." (And she explained her answer.)
After that, a debate happened between Catherine, Elena and Anthony.
Jenq Shiuan: (Raised his hands) Love is unconditionally. (And explained his answer.)
Jenq Shiuan's answer was really good.
If not mistaken, Wei Jian said he wanted to know my answer.
Mr. Gan: "Yes, Karen? What is your answer?"
Me: "I think love is blind because you can't see the flaws or weaknesses."
Wei Jian: "Wrong answer."
Catherine: "There is no right or wrong answer."
Mr. Gan: "Be more specific."
Everyone nodded and waited.
Me: "I can't answer."
Mr. Gan: "It's not that you can't answer, you just can't find the right words to explain."
I nodded and wanted to go back to my seat immediately.
Thank goodness Mr. Gan let me off.

No wonder I sensed something wrong.
I think they knew, because I saw them looking at Johnathan.
That was embarrassing.

After class, I quickly went out.
I can't bear to face the people in class.
I went for lunch.
While having lunch, we saw Serra, Nicole and Ashwini.
They were taking everything from the room to Serra's car.
We asked Serra where was she going.
She said, "Quit."
She was quitting college!
Unexpectedly, I was feeling sad.
Seriously, SAD!
We took pictures with her.
And, off she went.

After lunch, we were going to Melaka Central to buy bus tickets.
We went back to our room and get ready.
Wanie and Atiqah were going to bring us.
After we bought the tickets, we went to AEON because Wanie and Atiqah wanted to buy books using their vouchers.
We were going up to the first floor and I was leading the way to Popular.
I was a few steps ahead of Amal, Fiona, Wanie and Atiqah.
We were almost there.
That's when I saw Johnathan!
I stopped walking and saw Wei Jian next to him.
I turned around and run to the back of Fiona while saying, "Johnathan! I saw Johnathan!"
They asked me, "Where?"
And they saw him. 
Jenq Shiuan and Johnathan came near and I heard Jenq Shiuan said, "真巧。" (What a coincidence.)
I wasn't staying, so I walked my way to Popular.
I didn't know he was going to be there.
You know what? Amal and Fiona told me that they had a feeling that Johnathan was going to be there.

We went back and arrived college around 5.30pm.
Fiona got ready for her Futsal training and I was ready to go jogging.
I went out and wanted to use my usual way, which was passing by the swimming pool.
I changed my mind when I saw Johnathan's bottle and slippers.
I saw Johnathan looking at me.

After what had happened today, I decided not to come out from my room.
Luckily, tomorrow is Saturday.
I don't even need to get out from my room.

Coincidence or fate?

First of all, I just wanna tell everyone that it's my best day ever!
Why, you wonder?
Okay, I'll tell you.

Today, we went to the theatre.
Fiona wasn't going because she sold her ticket to Eshal.
So, that's left me, Amal and Julie.
We were told that those who were going need to be at the lobby around 7pm.
When we reached the lobby, we saw Elena, Joanne, Janice, Wei Jian and Johnathan.
Amal asked them if they were going and yes, they were.
Johnathan was wearing a black and white long sleeves, and so was I, except with short sleeves.
Coincidence? I think not.

We were going to the theatre by van that Ms Helen had provided.
Who is Ms Helen?
She's one of the best lecturer.
She's the one that we were going to see in the play.
Back to the story.
Everyone went into the van.
Shangeri and Huda went in first and sat at the last row.
Joanne and Elena went in after and sat at the first row.
After that, Johnathan went in and sat at the second row.
Amal went in and sat next to Shangeri.
I was standing outside of the van, figuring out where to sit.
Suddenly, I saw Elena patting the empty seat right behind her, which was next to Johnathan.
And yes, I went in and sat next to Johnathan.
Janice sat next to Elena, while Wei Jian sat in front with the driver.

It felt so uncomfortable sitting next to Johnathan.
It was really awkward.
I didn't know what to do.
I looked behind, where Julie and Amal was sitting.
Amal said, "Kelaka" to me.
It means, 'Start a conversation' in the Sarawak language.
I told her that I don't want to.
So, it was awkward silence between me and him.
Still, I was happy sitting right next to him.
It was like 2cm apart.

Upon arrival, we saw a lot of high class people. Literally.
Almost everyone was wearing formally.
And mostly were middle aged people.
We were considered the youngest there.
After taking our goodies bag, we were asked to go inside the auditorium.
It was so cool and cold.
I was sitting right behind of Johnathan.
It was a good opportunity.
Opportunity for what?
Opportunity for taking pictures of him.
And yeah, I took so much of it.

I told Amal that we should take pictures together with Julie.
Guess what!
Amal snatched away my phone from me and passed it to Johnathan, asking him to take our pictures.
He said that he wanted to take a selfie first. Haha.
Then, he asked me which part of the screen to touch to take our picture.
I told him.
After he took our pictures, I totally forgot that I took his picture from behind before my phone was passed to Johnathan.
It's no big deal? IT IS A BIG DEAL!
My camera application shows tiny pictures of the previous pictures taken.
I bet he saw his picture.

About 20 minutes after,
A guy that really attracted me walk in.
He was wearing a black singlet, shorts and shoes.
He has tattoos and piercings.
I kept looking at him and all my friends noticed.
I said that he looked like Shafiq.
After he sat down, just across of Elena's row, I said this aloud: "He looks like Jay Park!"
They all laughed and agreed.
Johnathan immediately asked Janice, "谁是Jay Park?" (Who is Jay Park?"
Janice went on instagram and show him a picture of Jay Park.
He said that they don't look alike at all -.-
Oh and, Elena took pictures of us all using her phone.
Thank you, Elena! :)

Around 8.30pm, the play started.
It was going on and on.
Then, there was a 15 minutes interval.
My Jay Park went out.
To be honest, during the play, I planned to approached 'Jay Park' and take a picture with him.
When I came out from the auditorium, I saw him and he was looking at me.
He was talking to an elderly woman, so I went to the toilet first.
After coming out from the toilet, I walked to where he was and he looked at me, again!
But he was still talking to the elderly.
I wouldn't want to interrupt. 
It's a matter of respect.
The play was about to start, so my friends and I went in.
A few minutes later, 'Jay Park' walked in.
He sat in front with someone.
I assume that it's his mother.
After that, his 'mother' walked away from her seat and talked to someone else.
'Jay Park' was alone and Amal said that it was a good opportunity.
Too bad, the lighting wasn't good enough. It was dimmed.
Didn't take any picture.

And then, the last play started.
Ms Helen was in it.
We cheered for her when she appeared.
She was doing really well.
Good job!

After the play ended, 'Jay Park' went out immediately.
I shouted, 'My Jay Park!' and Johnathan giggled and looked at him going out.
So much for taking a picture with him.
I wanted to chase him, but Amal said that we should take a picture with Ms Helen.
So yeah, I went to Ms Helen.
We went on stage and something happened.
I didn't know what I did but, my butt hit something right behind me.
I looked back and saw Johnathan.
My 'behind' bumped into Johnathan's 'front.'
Why, oh why?
I saw Wei Jian laughing. Man, why did you have to see that?
That was embarrassing.
I really didn't know Johnathan was behind me.

Never mind about that.
So, we took a picture or two with Ms Helen and her husband.
After coming down from stage, I told Amal what had happened.
We went to the toilet and then the parking lot.
We waited for the van for about 20 minutes, I guess.
I think Johnathan was staring at me.
He was leaning at the wall and staring at me. (My assumption)

When the van arrived, I sat behind with Amal and Julie.
He was sitting in the first row, where Joanne was sitting earlier.
Our destination was McDonalds because we were very hungry.
At McD, only Amal and Johnathan stayed in the van.

Julie and I lined up in the same queue.
When it was my turn to pick up my order, everyone vanished.
I looked around again and I saw Johnathan near the one sided door.
He was waiting and walking around.
I thought he was waiting for Wei Jian.
I ignored him and went back to the van.
You know what?
Everyone was already in the van.
Does that mean Johnathan was waiting for me?
Please tell me he was.

After arriving college, he immediately went out of the van and said, "MU!"
Oooohhhh! He's a fan of Manchester United.
While on our way back to our room, Amal told me something.
She said that Johnathan talked to her.
Johnathan: Tidak makan/turun ka?
Amal: Tidak.
Johnathan: Suruh Karen belanja.
Something like that. I forgot what she told me.
OMG! He said my name. Hahahaha

I guess that's my story.
Long, isn't it?
I still can't get my mind off of what happened on stage.

The booklet they gave us.

The picture of Johnathan before he helped us to take our picture.

This was the picture he took for us.

There's my 'Jay Park.'

A picture with Ms Helen and her husband on stage.
