Hi peeps.

Suddenly, I feel the urge of writing about HKSBP. What is HKSBP? HKSBP stands for Hari Kecemerlangan Sekolah Berasrama Penuh. Yes, you got that idea. I am the alumnus of a boarding school - SM Sains Miri, to be exact.

We have this tradition of participating in HKSBP every year - it is the most prestigious event in the yearly calendar of every boarding schools. Why? It is the event where your achievements are being awarded, nationally. For more information, you can read about it here.

I was a debater. Yes. I represented my school for the Residential Schools National Level English Camp as well. And I still have the pride of being a school debater, once. Can't believe after years of leaving school, I still have that spirit. Lol.

The fact is, we don't see other boarding schools they way we look up to our school. We see the other schools as our 'rivals', especially during examination period and of course, HKSBP. By stating HKSBP, I don't simply mean debate, although the Prime Minister Trophy Challenge is the main event. We compete against each other in co-curricular activities as well, for example, basketball, wind orchestra, hockey, and et cetera. I don't remember much anymore. I left school in the year 2006. That was about 6 years back. How time flies!

Let's see. In the year 2005, we went against Lahad Datu, Sultan Abdul Halim, Faris Petra, Sekolah Tun Fatimah and Sekolah Datuk Abdul Razak. Sitting in the quarantine room for the four tournaments with the team from Malay College Kuala Kangsar really chills me down to the spine! In the year 2006, we went against Teluk Intan...and yeap, I dont remember the other three teams because we skipped one tournament, I guess. Haha. Can't believe HKSBP marks the end of my debating career in school. Adess.

Lots of memories gained from HKSBP, you know. We made lotsa friends :)) Yea, we can be friends, we can be lovers, but at the same time we can be foes as well! That's how unique our friendship is. Lol. I miss my schooling days. Anyways, to Sainsri Basketball team (yea, SM Sains Miri is the host of HSKBP SQL this year [SQL stands for Borneo Zone, if you're wondering what SQL means]), goodluck! You know you can do it :) Make the school proud, keep our flag flying high!

SM Sains Miri terus gemilang,
Oh namamu menjadi sanjungan,
Dalam menempuh arus kejayaan,
Tenang matang pejuang cemerlang!
