durian crepe/ Air Supply during SPM week


I know just how to whisper,
and i know just how to cry

and I know just where to touch you
and I know just what to prove
I know when to pull you closer
and i know when to let you loose
and I know the road is changing
and I know the time's gonna fly
..........
forgot the lyrics, got the lyrics all jumbled up but one thing for sure, I don't forget this line
making love....out of nothing at all..
out of nothing at all
making love

out of nothing at all.......

the lyrics meant nothing, i didn;t even know what 'making love' meant at that time, i was 17, yes sweet , naive and innocent 17 and was sitting for my SPM( Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia) the same exam my eldest daughter is having now, as we speak, ( I am picking her up at 3.30pm ).
I was in a boarding school , all girls boarding school in johor Bharu and during the exam weeks, there were only us, the fifth formers left behind and we were placed in a few separate dormitories. while we studying ( or so called last minute studying), some of us were listening to radios and this Air Supply song was on.
i couldn't really remember which paper it was but while i was stuck trying to answer the questions ,this particular line kept humming in my head
"making love oout of nothing at all,
over and over again....
shoo shoo go away but I couldn't make it go away, it kept on singing in my head but
Alhamdulillah, I didn't know how or what I did, i passed my SPM, not really with flying colours but enough to get Grade 1, ( it was a different system from the current one), enough to enrol me into the A Level program bound for UK.
