Ok, i shall go try and finish up Twilight today..

Monday, December 22, 2008

Hmm.. Yong's first day at work today. Not too bad i guess.

For some reason, everyone cleared the goods surprisingly fast today. By lunchtime, there wasnt much left already. And after lunch, there wasnt even anything left. Burned some time walking around looking for things to do. Signed out at 3 cos there wasnt anything left to do...

Off day tmr. Gonna think of a way to spend it. Maybe i can watch Naruto. Maybe i can finish up Twilight. Maybe i can go skating.

To kelvin: no, i wont be going out with you unless you can convince me that u can plan something that wont screw up. xD

Zoo was.... interesting? o.0

So i woke up at 6.45 today morning to make it in time for the breakfast with cherng jye, then to the zoo. But apparently, that's way too early since i only took like 15mins to get prepared. So i laid on on my bed for around 15-20 mins before leaving for the coffee shop.. Then blah blah blah until he came and ate and went to meet you ming at the bus stop.

Then blah blah blah again until we met teck li at pasir ris mrt. And lo and behold, he was really wearing jeans. Like, wth? Who wears jean to the zoo? People wear casual, COOLING wear to the zoo. Not jeans. So jokes about his ahem overheating kept us entertained for the better part of the train ride. lol. xD (and as expected, he did start complaining about the heat later in the day. haha)

The majority of the day passed in a blur, perhaps partially due to the fact that i was really, really tired. So I'll just write down those which really stick out in my mind.

Yun Jen joined us later at City Hall, and its off to the zoo we go. Reached there at around 10.30 if my memory serves me right. And unbelievably, there was actually a queue for the tickets. C'mon la, out of all the times i went, this is the only time when i saw a queue for the tickets. xD

The first exhibit was the Treetops Trail. Some people have trouble in differentiating real animals from fakes, and actually thought that the False Gharial (a crocodile-like reptile) we saw there was a fake, cos of the word "false". =.= Like, instead of suggesting that the gharial there is a fake, isn't that really obvious that the "false" is part of the reptiles' name? Lol. We did get a good laugh later on, when we went back to the Treetop Trail for the second time, and those people realised that the gharials were actually alive. Haha

Oh, then there was the otters, which really STINK! Among all of the animals present in the zoo, which includes even the rhinos and elephants, i would have to say that the otter will win the "stinkiest animal" award (that is, if there's one). And i am deadly serious about it when i say that the smell will smack you right in the face. Not only would it smack you right in the face, it would smack you hard and good. It even lingers for a little while after you have walked away from the exhibit. Like, whew, what a pong..

After lunch, we went to the Fragile Forest. Both interesting and "interesting" things happened there.

The interesting bit was the fact that among the five of us there, butterflies find me particularly attractive. They seem to love landing on me a lot, much to the terror of teck li and yun jen, who seem to have a mortal fear of all butterflies big and small (run away as well, jon. xD). Poor you ming couldnt get a single butterfly to land on her hand even after trying so hard. I know that the notice at the entrance says that no contact is to be made with the animals inside, but hey, i cant really help it if they decide to land on me all the time right? Its not as if i asked them to do it, cos they just land on me like that. So its not really my fault, right? xD Haha. And quite the contrary to the popular teck li's belief, butterflies do not, i repeat, DO NOT suck people's blood. =.=

The "interesting" bit, i guess, was when some liquid dripped down on my head. For your info, it wasn't raining at that point of time, albeit the sky being a little cloudy. And with free roaming birds and bats flying all over the place, i cant help but have the suspicion that i have just been the unlucky victim of a bird's/bat's aerial "bomb". The fact that none of the rest have felt anything totally did not help in alleviating my unease.. Oh well, at least now i know how Yanzhi felt when a bird decided to, uh, defaecate itself over his head at the basketball court during assembly 2 years ago. zzz

I guess that the day is pretty much summed up here, save for the less colourful details. Oh, perhaps just one last thing: There is a looong time interval between each bus 22. And in addition, the whole trip takes quite some time to complete. The bus goes from Toa Payoh and winds around the streets to Paya Lebah, then from there to Kaki Bukit, then to Bedok Reservoir, before finally reaching Tampines. With all that time wasted, you are better off taking the mrt..

I have work tmr morning, so i think i'll turn in early. Have a nice night..

Omg, this post is ultra long..

Until the storm is over

I swear that i will not anyhow place unwanted items on the wrong shelves at any supermarket ever again. Its irritating for the shelvers, really.

Just these few days, I've found Yakults at cereal racks, margarine at the biscuit section, a pack of herbs near Milo, and even toothpaste and a can of root beer at the milk shelf.. =.=

Okok, next topic then. Can someone ask me out for tomorrow and Friday? I dun wanna stone at home.. zzz

Tuesday, December 16, 2008

Hello?! Its the holidays!! =.=

Kelvin is retarded. He's actually revising the stuff he's learnt even though he has graduated already. Thats just plain retarded. Then again, being retarded sounds exactly like him. -_-
Hmm.. Yet another day at work today. Izzad came along with Yong for his interview. And quoting Kelvin about the difficulty of the test, it was a bit insulting, really. So Yong obviously passed and got hired. Maybe i should congratulate him. Ok, here it goes.

CONGRATULATIONS TO SAM YONG FOR FINALLY GETTING A JOB AFTER GETTING FIRED BY HIS MOTHER! Lol xD

Alright alright. So here i am, at home, after work, sipping on the banana milkfloat i made myself (milkfloat=milkshake + float. And yes, i invented that word myself..)(it tastes quite nice actually. Ok, maybe nice is an understatement. xD).

I was so bored yesterday that i helped in my friend's holiday homework about the economic crisis. But i ended up reading about a mixture of nitric acid and hydrochloric acid called aqua regia, which is able to dissolve gold and platinum. Like, cool. lol

Hold On

I've been there a thousand times
I've felt the rain like a thousand knives
And it hurts I know it hurts
I've been there like a fighter plane
Tryin' fly my way through a hurricane
And it's hard I know it's hard

Don't be afraid
You'll make it through
Just call out to me and I'll come running to you
Hold on, hold on
When the current pulls you under
And your heart beats like thunder
Just give me your hand
And hold on, hold on
Unitl the storm is over
And I'll be fighting for you
Just give me your hand and
Hold on

I'll give you hope,
I'll give you faith
And if it's dark, I'll light the way
For you, for you
By your side, until the end
Until you're standing tall again
I'm here, I'll always be here
And if the tide, sweeps you out to sea
When your strength is gone, and it's hard to believe
Hold on, hold on
When the current pulls you under
And your heart beats like thunder
Just give me your hand
And hold on, hold on
Until the storm is over
And I'll be fighting for you
Just give me your hand

Ooooo so...Hold on, hold on
When the current pulls you under
And your heart beats like thunder
Just give me your hand
And hold on, hold onUnitl the storm is over
And I'll be fighting for you
Just give me your hand
And hold on, hold on

A few stuff

Q:Know why a room full of married people looks so empty?
A:There's not a Single person in it.

Q: What did the fish say when he hit the wall?
A: DAM!!

ok, that's all until i see more..

The sun is out again! xD

Hmm... First thing that struck me as interesting today was seeing mr vincent lee at the NTUC i am working at. He was wearing NAS shirt some more. You know, the one only teachers have? The one that's white with blue sleeves. For some reason, i nearly fell off the ladder with i saw him (i was restocking the shelves at that time). He didnt see me anyway, so yeah.

I think i am liking work more and more. I mean, ok its slightly tiring at times, but at least it helps me waste my time. Being able to buy anything with my pay is, of course, an added bonus. The only pity is that this job doesnt pay more. Oh well, at least i have a job. You cant really say that it has been easy finding one after the O's. And Yong is joining me at work, so you can say that the companionship kind of makes up for the low pay? lol. xD

Oh, and i've updated my wishlist again. Hahas

Saturday, December 13, 2008

I was so bored, that i have decided to update my wish list. And there it is..
Ok, this is my 100th post. I dunno why i took that long to reach 100, but still..

I feel so... bored. Previously, i have chalets, outings and work to keep me occupied. But apparently, there's nothjing much to keep me occupied this afternoon. Its a weird feeling to feel so.. free. I think its like the first time in months a year since i was so bored. It definitely needs a little getting used to.

Oh well. I think i should go find something to do.. Goodbye. =D

I have no fate with barbers

But of course, i certainly hope that its the last. -_-

Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I? Should I?

The pink bunnies of doom..

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU MING!
Congrats on being 16 after so, so, so long. =D

Alright, this is gonna be a long post as well. Lets see..
Initially, the plan was to meet up with you ming, ivan and sylvia to go skating at pasir ris park. But as you know, things never go according to plan, and its no surprise that this particular one screwed up. End result: Me and ivan were the only ones left to go skating.

Of course, we went ahead with the skating. And i discovered that Pasir Ris park was really tiny. It only took us just over 40 mins for a round trip, which make it around 20 mins to get from end to end. We weren't even going fast. Compare that to the 1.5hr which me and cherng jye took to get from NSRCC to the Mac at East Coast. Pasir Ris park is simply miniscule.

Okok, went to E!hub after skating. Used up the last 2 of my free bowling games with ivan.. He totally owned in the first game cos he got 3 strikes in a row. Like, wth??!! o.0
I won the second game, but the score was only 101.. For some reason, i seem to get less and less strikes/spares in my recent games. I wonder why..

Went to the arcade after bowling. Got my MIP nEbO Tapz card. Looks quite cool actually. I think it would look even nicer if the prints weren't peeling off due to bad handiwork. Either way, i dun care. The card discounts would work regardless of the condition of the exterior.

Used the "top up $10 and get $10 free" coupon. Ended up with $41.40 in the Tapz card as a result. Highest ever amount I have inside any of my Tapz cards. haha.

First game was some Ghost mansion thingy. Gotta use those wands to wack wack the ghosts on screen. Wack as in literally wack the screen. Quite a workout i would say.. And whoever was the one who said that going to the arcade was bad for health? haha

Then it was Silent Hill. And omgomgomg, we discovered a new cheat/hack/bug. You actually dun need to reload at all. As in, you dun need to point out of the screen and press the trigger once to reload. You can just keep spamming and the thing simply auto reloads. Haha. We had to go all the way to the second boss before we discovered that. lol. Oh, and when you get to the later parts, pink bunnies wielding axes, guns and chainsaws will appear, and you gotta riddle them with bullets before they die. Damn jolly. haha

And today wasnt Ivan's day for any other games. He died while trying to show me some thingy on another shooting game Then he accidentally chose automatic instead of his usual manual on the racing game. Then after he chose manual on the next racing game, the gear wasnt working and he can only go up to 3rd gear out of 4. Then on the next next game, the steering wheel wasnt working and the car would turn of its own accord. And when he finally chose one that worked perfectly, his mum called him halfway through and he probably got too nervous to play properly after that, so he lost anyway. LOL

Final balance on the nEbO MIP Tapz card after 2 hours: $25+ (thats not even half! o.0)

This post took me 1 hr to type, thanks to 4 msn conversations taking place while i was typing this.

Movies, libraries and fluctuating water pressures

Okok. The day started off with me expecting Yong at my place. However, unfortunately, he was unable to come over 'cos he gotta wait for his brother, who has forgotten to bring his keys, to come home from camp.

Then, i was invited to watch a movie by another bored soul. In the end, City of Ember was the movie we decided to watch and the location was E!hub at 3pm. Watched the show we did, until 4.45pm.

From there, it was a decision to either bowl or go home. But seeing as nobody had bought socks along, the bowling option was quickly eliminated. Not wanting to go home to endure yet another attack by Boredom, we decided to go to White Sands. Following that was a visit to NTUC Fairprice to grab some snacks (in my case, a drink), then its off to the library.

Upon reaching there, I discovered that none of the books I wanted to borrow were there. However, by a stroke of luck, I discovered that a book which i have been eyeing for 5 months was not on loan (like, finally?) at Tampines library. So, after everything was borrowed and settled, we went our separate ways.

After reaching Tampines library, i went straight to HUGO Room for the book. Lo and behold, there was only one copy left (there were 3 copies available when i checked at White Sands). Of couse, i quickly grabbed that copy and started to make my way out. It was only then which i realised that another book which i have been aiming to read, The Sleeping Doll by Jeffery Deaver, was also available. Thus, i grabbed that as well and went to borrow both of them.

Then its balik kampung for me. And i did realise that my house's water pressure have been fluctuating greatly of late. One moment, it could be so low that it couldnt even activate the instant water heater. Then, it could be so great on the next moment that if you are staring at the spray head and wondering why there's so little water coming out, you would most likely be rewarded with a face full of water gushing out at full pressure. Not a nice experience. And when you do experience it, a dozen colourful words would probably be swirling around your mind the moment the water goes into your eyes. I cant say that it hasnt happened to me before.. Perhaps around half a dozen times? Haha. Oh well..

Man, this is a long post. Took me what? Half an hour to type it? Ok, off to dinner now. Have a nice night. :)
That sentence you said sent a shiver down my spine.

It made me stop in my tracks and it was really really scary..

Holidays can kill.

Talking to some people can achieve the same effect as well.
New skin up and running...

May go for lunch and shop for a watch with teck li and cherng jye later.

Damn bored..

Beautiful pictures, painful memories

Its only till now which i realised that my current skin has no archives. Thats another reason for me to change it; something which I've been meaning to do for some time now, but have never really found the motivation to do so..

Prom Prom Prom Prom

So.. Yesterday night was prom. And guess what? It wasnt as interesting as i thought it would be. But then again, its not all that bad. At least some of the performances were nice. I especially liked the dance put up by the 5c2 guys. If it were really last minute work, like they said it was, then i must admit that they are really good.



Congrats to Jessica for getting an MP3 during the lucky draw, Chester for getting a pore cleanser, Jeremy for getting a bottle of perfume, Ivan for getting 2 packets of maggie mee, Ariz for getting 5 boxes of Carrefoure tissues, and me for getting thirty dollars worth of CapitaLand vouchers. lol.



After the food was photo-spamming time. Everyone spammed their photos like they weren't gonna see each other again. But on second thought we really aren't gonna see each other again as a class, aside from the day which we collect our results.

Oh yeah, and Ranon's the prom king! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!



Ok, this is hard. I know myself. I want to say it. But on second thought, saying it is a bad idea. Its hard to hold on, but letting go isnt really that easy either. Especially when it is still there. Perhaps you feel the same way as well. But i am sorry. Its less painful this way. For both of us.

Thursday, November 27, 2008

Oh the horror 2...

I really had trouble sleeping last night. Laid on the bed for like 2 hours before drifting into an uneasy sleep.. Then woke up just 8 hours later instead of the usual 9-10 hours. =.=

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

Oh the horror...

Damn kelvin, for putting that link there. I got such a bad scare, i think i cant fall asleep anymore.. =.=
I cant really believe that i am saying this, but holidays are boring..

Ok, anyone up for bowling at Ehub before 1st December? I've got 2 free games there.. Dun let it go to waste..

skate, skate, and skate again o.0

Table tennis chalet yesterday. Let me recall what we did..


Firstly, me and Cherng Jye skated there from NSRCC. The trip took around 1.5 hours cos we're skating against a very strong headwind..

Then we rested for around 5 mins upon reaching there before skating to 7-11 to get some Big Gulp.

Then we skated back and slacked for another 10-20 mins to wait for the rest to settle down and also for them to rent their skates.

After they rented their skates, we skated till around 7 plus and taught Chan Kai and You Ming how to skate during that time.

On the way back, we saw the sunset against the city skyline. It was simply magical.

Then it was dinner.

After dinner, Cherng Jye's shirt, pants and underwear got soaked in a tub of water thanks to me. xD

After laughing so hard and much at the people who got wet, we went back to skating. Again.

Skated for another 2 hours or so, then went home with Chan Kai and Chun Khin.


Just to sum it up in one sentence: We pretty much did nothing much but skate throughout the whole day. Haha.

Monday, November 24, 2008

skates, chalets and weddings..

Bought a pair of skates yesterday. They are damn smooth. In fact, they are too smooth for my liking.. =.= Now i cant stop properly. zz

Anyway, there's the table tennis chalet tmr. But before that, i gotta go for a job interview at Kaki Bukit. And the journey duration is like what? 1 hour or so? After that, i need to follow Cherng Jye off to Bugis for his job interview before finally going for the chalet. But till now, i am still wondering why did i agree to accompany him all the way to Bugis for his interview. =.=

This holiday is a really busy one. Need to go for 3 chalets, weddings and work. Unfortunately, I cant make it for Mr Lim's wedding, So Mr Lim, if you are reading this, i would like to give my best wishes to you and Mrs Lim, and also my apologies for not being able to attend the wedding (blame the overseas trip, not me. xD).

Oh well, gotta wake up early for the interview tmr. Cheerio..

red camp photos

Some photos from Red Camp 5. Sorry for those portrait photos which are in landscape style. Lazy to flip them around, so yeah..




The Baracudas @ ZoukOut



Love their lasers alot. Damn cool



Giving that retarded face. lol

An even more retarded face.. xD









More spastic-ness. lol. Its becoming a habit


We call him TQ..



That sticker is something like a ticket to the ZoukOut


Vikings FTW. lol



The Centurions and Spartans are on the other side.. Cant see them









Sub-tribe 1 of the Vikings


Something fishy?

Wads with the same face and actions?


And again..

Holding on is harder than letting go

Not in the best of moods these few days. Then again, I have been feeling like that ever since the end of the O levels.

Firstly, its that feeling of anxiety. But not long after, the anxiety is replaced by desperation, then finally emo-ness.

Things are not working out well. Not well at all. Maybe i'll just give up. But after hanging on for so long, i find it hard to just let go.

I am tired, really tired. Just let me go already...

Its painful. Do you know that?

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

Its all about timing

Class chalet wasnt too bad, other than the fact that there weren't much amenities that we could make use of.

The best thing that happened over there was the skating. Skated with teck li all the way from NSRCC to the food court that's near bedok jetty. Seems like a long way, but it really isnt, since the entire journey only took around 1 hour there and back. Short as it is, however, it took alot out of me. It has been like, 2 month or so since i last gave myself a great exertion? So i am pretty much dead beat after that. And to think that everyone thought that i went home already when i am actually playing a psp upstairs. lol.

I WANT SKATES!!! =.= And i also want a job so that i can fulfill my need for my skates.. zzz

Is it going to happen tmr? Or is it going to happen during this holiday? Or is it never going to happen at all?

Sunday, November 16, 2008

Saturday, November 15, 2008

Sometimes, i feel unappreciated. Of all the hard work i've put in, nothing comes back. Most of the time, i do not really mind or care, but it would be nice if i had some appreciation shown. Perhaps life is like that; you would not be given credit unless you produce some extraordinary results.

But there's nothing like a good book to transport away all the moodiness. But i must say that the ending of The mystery of Yamashita's map was unimpressive. Totally unimpressive.

Maybe i should go listen to music. It has never failed in helping me feel better, and there's no reason why it wouldn't help right now.

WHOO!! ITS FINALLY OVER!!

After 1 long month, it has finally come to an end. YEAH! OMGOMGOMG! So much to do. So much to buy. So little time.

Oh well, who cares. As long its ITS OVER! haha.
Not confident of getting above 35 for the bio mcq actually. I know i have at least 2 wrongs and who knows how many else. Its all thanks to my stomach wrecking havoc inside me halfway through the exam. Took all of my will-power to resist it. =.= But thats past. I shall now look forward to getting back my results. lol!

ok, i shall go find something to play. haha! =D

Wednesday, November 5, 2008

Watched Heroes this morning, then Bleach during lunch. Went to Times to get Brisingr after that. Now i can finally read it, after waiting for so long. Wahaha. xD

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

The O levels are like over already, with only the mcq papers left.

Somehow, i dunno what to do. I mean, it has only been 1.5 hours since i got home, but i am already seriously bored. I am actually making an effort to find out what to do. But it all seems pointless. Even computer games have lost their appeal (amazingly so, dun you think?).

Forget it. I shall just stone and wait for yong to reach my house so i can play with his psp. =.=

anyway, early happy birthday to Sylvia, Sean and Hui Qi.

And happy childrens' day too, i suppose..

Thursday, September 25, 2008

Thanks kelvin, for making me search for this song. Now its freaking stuck in my head. =.=

Love Story - Taylor Swift

We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes and the flash back starts
I’m standing there on a balcony in summer air
See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns
See you make your way through the crowd
And say hello, little did I know
That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
And I was crying on the staircase begging you please don’t go
And I said…

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I’ll be waiting, all there's left to do is run
You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess
It’s a love story
Baby, just say yes

So I sneak out to the garden to see you
We keep quiet ‘cause we’re dead if they knew
So close your eyes, escape this town for a little while
Oh, oh, oh

Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet…
Coz' you were everything to me and i was begging you please don't go and i said..

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I’ll be waiting, all there's left to do is run
You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess
It’s a love story
Baby, just say yes

Romeo save me, they're trying to tell me how it feel
This love is difficult, but it's real
Don't be afraid we'll make it out of this mess it's a love story
Baby just say yes

I got tired of waiting
Wondering if ever you were coming around
My faith in you is fading
When i met you in the outskirts of townand i said..

Romeo save meI've been feeling so alone
I keep waiting for you but you never come
Is this in my head, i don't know what to think
He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said..

Marry me Juliet
You'll never have to be alone
I love you and that's all i really know
I talked to your dad, you'll pick out a white dress
It's a love story,baby just say..yes

we were both young
when i first saw you...

I Will Remember You - Ryan Cabrera

Damn, this song is stuck in my head. =.=
Stupid graduation video.. wish that i hadnt watched it so many times..

Eight years later
Time goes by fast
Got my memories
And they will last
I try to keep it simple 'cause I hate goodbyes
I try to keep it simple by telling myself that

I, I will remember you
And all of the things that we've gone through
There is so much I could say
But words get in the way so
We're not together
I will remember you
I will remember you

We're a picture in my mind
And when I wanna find you
I just close my eyes
You'll never be that far from me
So don't say goodbye 'cause
You'll never be that far from me
I'm telling myself that

I, I will remember you
And all of the things that we've gone through
There is so much I could say
But words get in the way so
We're not together
I will remember you

You were there when I needed a friend
Thank you, thank you
I never told you how much that meant
God thank you, thank you
I will remember you

And all of the things that we've gone through
There is so much I could say
But words get in the way so
I, I will remember you

And all of the things that we've gone through
There is so much I could say
But words get in the way so
We're not together

I will remember
We're not together
I will remember you
I will remember you

that's life.

my memory card is gone for the weekend, i cant listen to my mp3, and i wasted an hour waiting to get out of the jam in a carpark just now. How sad is that? Lol.

Anyway, its high time that we start doing the right thing instead of doing things right. Sound familiar? Think graduation. My mum actually remembered that la. She even quoted that to me just now. Like, wth? You actually remembered that? Lols.

GRADUATION!! ZOMG!

CONGRATULATION TO ALL THE SEC 4 NASians OUT THERE FOR OFFICIALLY GRADUATING FROM NGEE ANN SECONDARY! =D



Haha. Today is definitely a day to remember. 1357 days ago, I stepped into Ngee Ann for the first time. And now, 1357 days later, i have officially graduated from this institution. Its a bittersweet feeling actually, to think that 4 years are gone in a flash. I actually still remember the first day in this school. And now, i shall make sure that i do not forget my last.



The ceremony, abeit slightly boring at the beginning, got a little spicier towards the end. For me, the most memorable things were the singing of the school song and the showing of the class video; The singing of this school song is as loud as it could ever get, with the whole sec 4 cohort singing it. I dun think any other day's decibel levels could stand up to this afternoon's. Not even when the whole school is present. Of course, like the emcee said, it is the last time which we would be singing the school song, so i guess everybody sang to their heart's content. Really touching you know, cos i have never thought that the school song could actually sound so nice.. *sniffs*



Then there was the class video. The effect of it was slightly marred by the fact that half the class was already gone before it was shown. Nevertheless, the remainder hung around and became a great audience, laughing and clapping at exactly the right moments.



Of couse, a graduation ceremony is never complete without photos. I wanted to bring my camera, initially. But decided against it after that, making it an action which i regretted. Hey, at least there were other people with cameras, so it wasnt a complete loss.



Like Mr Adrian Lim said, graduation is not the end of the road, it is the beginning of a brand new journey in life. So i this is not the end. After all, there's still the O levels to chiong for. And with only 30 days left, there is really not much time to spare.



So, all the best for the upcoming exams, have confidence in yourself, and do your best. =D





The flag thingy (forgot wad its called =.=) which the school gave us. Mr Lim is a good principal..

Happy times..

blogging with my phone now. I lazy on com. Haha. Damn cool. Lol.

Went swimming with sylvia, yanci, teckli and cherng jye. Although the weather wasnt all bright and shiny, we still went ahead. But it wasnt that bad la. At least the water isnt freezing. In fact, despite the rain, its still extraordinarily warm. And as usual, the girls turned up like what? 1 hour late? Lol. I think i should follow cherng jye's method when asking girls out. That is, tell them to meet at a certain time, but you only leave for it half an hour later, cos the girls are bound to be late. haha

Swam for like 3 hours i think, so quite beat after that luh. But it was worth it, considering the fun we had.

Went to pasir ris beach after that. We actually planned to go skating after swimming, but after looking at the time, we decided to give it a miss. Went to pasir ris park anyway to watch the sunset. And the sky was amazingly clear. Like, clear~ Cos the whole day like so gloomy, then suddenly got this clear evening sky. It was rather beautiful. I did take a few pictures, but dun think they are anything special, so not gonna post them.

Oh yeah, and we blasted "my heart will go on" on the breakwater. Damn jolly. haha. Went home after the sun set and the sky went dark (duh). I think thats like, the 3rd/4th time i went to the beach to watch the sunset with them? But one thing's for sure: it wont be the last. =)

I think my arms are gonna ache like crazy tmr...
Bored...

Stoning...

Feel like studying..

Dun want to study..

Sky gonna rain...

Hope it doesnt, cos if not i cant go swim later..

WHEE! PRELIMS ARE OVER!!


ok, i dunno wad i am celebrating about, cos the O levels are due in like, 30+ days time? So, a short break before the final dash. 1 day would be sufficient though. Cant afford any more than that anyway.


Had bio and chem MCQs and DnT today. Bio and chem werent bad, considering that i can do most (80-90%) of the questions, if not all (chem roxs). lol


DnT was moderately fine. cos the second last question was like a physics question. And it cost like 20 marks? =.= Anyhow zam one answer come out in the end. But walao, anyhow zam also zam wrong lor. I wanted to calculate the circumference of the circle, in the end, i go calculate pi x r^2. Dam idiotic sia. zz. Oh well, at least the whole question wasnt on calculation. So not too bad la.
Then the last question. Also 20 marks. Then ask about IC chips. If i am not wrong, about 2 hours before the exam, i heard a certain teck li saying that there is no need to study IC chips cos 'confirm wont come out one'. Look wad happened in the end? =.= Never trust anyone except yourself and your instincts. zz


Oh, and this was wad happened during night study yesterday:
Time: 8.55pm
*Cherng jye packs up his stuff*
Me: eh, why you so early pack up?
CJ: i going liao. my 28 always come at around this time one.
Me: how u know?
CJ: the last few days also like that wad..
Me: chey. anything lor.

*CJ pangsehed all of us and went home first*
*1 minute later*
Me (shouts down from 3rd floor): eh, if u miss the bus i laugh sia!
CJ: (shouts up from 1st floor): shut up la Cheng boon. i wont give u the chance

*30 secs later* everyone else leaves for home
* me walking down the staircase and sees a bus driving past*
Me@ sylvia and yanci: eh, is that 28?
sylvia/yanci: dunno leh..
CJ (strangled voice from below): NGO CHENG BOON!!!!
Me @ sylvia and yanci: ok, confirm 28..
CJ@ me: you and your bloody mouth..

laughed for 5 mins non-stop after that. freaking funny. lol


___________________________________________________________________

Edit:
BLEACH MOVIE 2 IS FREAKING FREAKING FREAKING NICE!!!

well, except for the ending song, which was like half screamo? And screamo sucks.

DnT!!

I dun feel like studying for DnT.
I mean, who studies for DnT theory paper anyway? (i know i do, but that's beside the point).
Theory paper is crap. Why cant Cambridge just make the coursework be 100% of the O levels instead of 70%? People taking DnT would be so much happier.

Oh heck, i should just go and study it anyway. =.=

Tuesday, September 9, 2008

i feel like saying a lot of things.

Most of them dun sound very good.

Some of them are not meant to be heard.

The rest of it are specially reserved.

Heck. Go study.

_____________________________________________________________________

edit: chocolates really make you feel better.. much.

Sunday, September 7, 2008

My dad bought a new car yesterday,
I had a headache today,
We are having bio exam tomorrow.

I shall go study now. Byes..

Friday, September 5, 2008

Kelvin cant do bio for nuts.

But he can do it for chocolate!

ok, i know i am lame.

But hey.. i am bored..

...
...
...
...
...

43 more days...
...


ok, maybe i'll just end this off with a song.


Fall for you by secondhand serenade
For some reason, i have became addicted to this song.
So addicted in fact, that i can now remember the lyrics cos i listened to it so much.


in other words, i can sing it. Yes, i can sing. And no, i wont sing for you.

oh, and i removed the video cos its so ugly. lol.

Collide - Howie day

The dawn is breaking
A light shining through
You're barely waking
And I'm tangled up in you
Yeah

I'm open, you're closed
Where I follow, you'll go
I worry I won't see your face
Light up again
Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find
You and I collide

I'm quiet you know
You make a first impression
I've found I'm scared to know
I'm always on your mind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the stars refuse to shine
Out of the back you fall in time
I somehow find
You and I collide

Don't stop here
I've lost my place
I'm close behind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to ryhme
Out of the doubt that fills your mind
You finally find
You and I collide
You finally find
You and I collide
You finally find
You and I collide

i was just reading through the archives of this blog when i realised how much time has passed. yup, it is as if it was only yesterday when i posted all those stuff. It surprising as well, looking at how different my writing style was from last time. Maybe i've grown more mature, maybe i've become less fun, or maybe, its high time to get serious.

Speaking of which, i should really get more serious. Time enough to play after the O levels. It is only what, 6 - 7 weeks more? After that, we can all burn our books!! =X

Okok, i should really go now.

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE
FOR THE O LEVELS!!
WE CAN DO IT! =)

temporarily dead till end of O levels
(thats around mid november)

Thursday, July 17, 2008

hmm. Seems like there isnt much to blog about of late. Or maybe its just due to my lack of attention for the stuff which happens around me. Either way, there is still this one thing which sticks in my mind like a stalk of rose sticking out of a pile of dung (weird personification, i know. but i cant think of anything more vivid than this one. =X)

That is, the MT 'O' level listening exam. Initially, i thought that listening would be a piece of cake. I thought wrong. It really looks as if the MOE really want us to think more. Unlike the previous year papers, the answers arent straightforward. Most of them cannot be found in the passage itself. It need you to think! Warning to people taking O level MT listening next year: keep your ears peeled and mind ready to form conclusions about what you heard.

But i really want to slap myself for something careless. Damn bloody careless. Question 2's answer was supposed to be 'b', but i shaded 'a' instead. Realised that after i handed in the answer sheet. After i realised that, it was like "OH ****!! DIE!! @#^*%@#^%" =.=
Sian. One mark lost just like that. zzz


Had bio SPA today. Really interesting cos we're dealing with live specimens for the first time here. If you were wondering, the live specimens were catfish (no, not the big ones. We used the baby ones. Only 2-3cm long). The experiment was on respiration, so gotta place the fish in hydrogen carbonate solution and watch the solution turn yellow as it turned acidic from the carbon dioxide released by the fish. But the thing is, all the fish did was to stone. I mean, it literally stoned la. It just stayed there, not moving unless you shook the boiling tube slightly. If u didnt see the gills moving, you could've taken it for dead.

Lawton knocked over a test tube contaning a fish. I had to get KY to wake up (he was sleeping) to get the fish back into the solution cos lawton dun dare to touch it. In the end, KY used a pair of forceps to giap it back into the solution. And guess which part of the fish he giaped? It was the head. =.= After that, the fish had this red spot (of what i think is blood) under its head where there shouldn't be. I think its suffering from internal bleeding. =.= Poor fish.

Oh yeah, teck li ate some fish food. According to him, it tastes like chicken. Crazy. zzz. Maybe he is a fish by nature. =.=

Anything else? i dun think so. Ok then, i'll just end here.

Friday, July 11, 2008

Friday, glorious friday. The best day of the week. Actually, this week wasnt that bad, since it was quite jolly. This is especially true for thurday and today.

Thursday started off as a great joke. Let's just put it at something involving jumping on benches which has chilli sauce packets located at the bottom of the bench legs. Result: chilli sauce everywhere. Including on books, walls, benches and even hair. xD My sincerest apologies to those whose uniform got stained. =X You should have seen their faces though. xD

Got back my CCA records as well. To my great, great, great^10000 surprise, I got an A!!! Like, omgzxzxzx!! I was expecting nothing more than a B la. The last time i checked (thats about june last year), I was having trouble getting a C. =.= Looks like joining all those dumb competitions like Commonwealth Essay writing and robotics werent in vain after all. =D And perhaps i should also thank the school for assigning me to do CIP to push me from B3 to A2. WHEE!!

And today during PE, I surpassed all expectations, both public and personal, by jumping 2.4m for standing broad jump. Whoo! Thats another step closer to Gold (got 17 points at the moment). Only got shuttle run and pull-ups left. Hope that i dun screw up my pull-ups though. I can only do 8 at the moment. Although thats an A for my age, its a big deprovement from my last year's 11. =.= Perhaps growing heavier by nearly 10kg plays a part.. zzz

Another reason for me to pop the champagne bottle is that I've finally finished by D&T workpiece. WHOO! Finally, after so many long days of staying back, ITS FINISHED!!!
And if i might say so myself, its a great piece of work. Albeit having some minor and nearly unnoticable flaws. Wahaha.

Oh, and kelvin was gonna meet amanda for a candlelight lunch at 201 kopitiam before zu an and i foiled his plan. Haha, joking joking. xD But he did get trapped out of his house for an hour cos he didnt bring his house keys out. Maybe he went to look for amanda. LOL. Thats first blood.

And someone, got scammed by the dentist into thinking that she can take off her braces today. In the end, only got to get an X ray and have to wait till the next month to get it off. Haha. This is double kill.

Perhaps my finger getting cut and stung like crazy when i accidentally allowed acetone (some solvent used in D&T) to come in contact with it is the triple kill.

Ok, i dun know wads with me and the dota stuff, seeing as i nvr really liked dota. =.=

A dumb joke to end this post off. (You need to learn amath to get this one. )

A mathematician went insane and believed that he was the differentiation operator. His friends had him placed in a mental hospital until he got better.
All day he would go around frightening the other patients by staring at them and saying "I differentiate you!"
One day he met a new patient; and true to form he stared at him and said "I differentiate you!", but for once, his victim's expression didn't change.
Surprised, the mathematician marshalled his energies, stared fiercely at the new patient and said loudly "I differentiate you!", but still the other man had no reaction.
Finally, in frustration, the mathematician screamed out "I DIFFERENTIATE YOU!" The new patient calmly looked up and said, "You can differentiate me all you like: I'm e to the power of x."

Lol, whatever. Byebye.. wow, this is a long post.. >.<

Wednesday, July 9, 2008

This blog is getting half dead. But i simply cant find time to blog anymore. So much to do, yet so little time. Yes, i know thats cliched, but hey, its true isnt it?

Anyway, the Night Study Program was total crap. Couldnt concentrate at all thanks to teck yang and ezra. The dim lighting didnt help either. However, i am willing to give it another chance. Perhaps next time round, i'll sit somewhere else quieter and brighter.

Went for DnT at 3.55pm today, only to find mr zainal closing up the workshop. But we managed to persuade him to close it at 4.30 anyway. Finished my soldering today. Like, finally.. =.= What? Its not that easy ok? Not when the parts are 5mm in diameter and would move out of place at the slightest touch. Accomplishing such a feat requires SKILL. =D

Haiz, got amath test tmr. Thats news bad enough by itself. Whats worse was that i only found out today! zzz

Forget it. No point complaning about it here. Rather spend the time revising.

P.S. Kelvin stalks _ _ _ _ _ _ all the time!! BE CAREFUL!! xD

Thursday, July 3, 2008

Somehow, i think i've lost the drive to blog. Perhaps i am starting to prioritise better now. Unimportant stuff aside, important stuff in front. Currently, the important thing is to score well for prelims, and subsequently, the O levels.



But i guess i'll still blog when i am free, just to keep this blog alive. If i do not, then i think i'll be busy loading knowledge into my brain. But either way, the frequency of my posts will get longer and longer.

...

Dunno wad to say..

...

Oh yeah, i think i half screwed up my O level chinese oral. Started to read the words wrongly for the 2nd last part of the passage onwards. Conversation was worse. Like, what are we supposed to say for inflation?! Talked about the oil prices rising. Dun think it was enough though. zzz. Perhaps chinese gone case already. Need to focus on the rest of the subjects. Anyway, i dun think i am relying on my chinese for the l1r5. I was never really good at chinese.



Tongue Tied - Faber Drive

Bright cold silver moon
Tonight alone in my room
You were here just yesterday
Slight turn of the head
Eyes down when you said
I guess I need my life to change
Seems like something's just aren't the same
What could I say?

I need a little more luck than a little bit
Cuz every time I get stuck the words won't fit
And every time that I try I get tongue tied
I'll need a little good luck to get me by

I need a little more help than a little bit
Like the perfect one word no one's heard yet
Cuz every time that I try I get tongue tied
I need a little good luck to get me by this time

I stare up at the stars
I wonder just where you are
You feel a million miles away
(I wonder just where you are)
Was it something I said?
Or something I never did?
Or was I always in the way?
Could someone tell me what to say to just make you stay?
I need a little more luck than a little bit

Cuz every time I get stuck the words won't fit
And every time that I try I get tongue tied
I need a little good luck to get me by
I need a little more help than a little bit
Like the perfect one word no one's heard ye
tCuz every time that I try I get tongue tied
I need a little good luck to get me by this time

I know it feels like the end
Don't want to be here again
And we could help each other off the ground so we never fall down again
What it takes I don't care
We're gonna make it I swear
And we could help each other off the ground so we never fall down again
Again

I need a little more luck than a little bit
Cuz every time I get stuck the words won't fit
But every time that I try I get tongue tied
I need a little good luck to get me by
I need a little more help than a little bit
Like the perfect one word no one's heard yet
Cuz every time that I try I get tongue tied
I need a little good luck to get me by this time

I know it feels like the end
Don't want to be here again
And we could help each other off the ground so we never fall down again
What it takes I don't care
We're gonna make it I swear
And we could help each other off the ground so we never fall down again

WHEE!! CONCERT WEEKEND!!

Saturday: Tampines in Concert by Tampines Sec
Sunday: Tapestry by Ngee Ann Sec

For some reason, i seem to have enjoyed saturday more. More fun, cos i get to see the friends which i miss so much. =) To all from 6.7 '04: We should get together more often!~

Lets start with saturday first then.. i'll try to recall to the best of my ability (i tend to forget stuff).

Met joel and youming at 5.30 at north park bus stop. Quite a surprise actually, cos they suddenly pop up out of the blue. Went to tampines mrt to wait for marcel. He's late, as usual. xP no offence marcel. =D

Sat on the mrt to tanjong pagar. Saw this really nice cloud near paya lebar if i am not wrong. Its like one whole entire white wall against a otherwise cloudless sky. Beautiful. Everyone was like trying to get some snapshots of it. Attempted to get one myself, but unfortunately, with no thanks to trees and the concrete jungle out there, i cant get a clear shot.

Reached Singapore Conference Hall (SCH) and met up with yanjun and her friend there. We went to this balcony thing on the second floor since we had lots of time and also to get away from the crowd. Lo and behold, there was an airshow going on right at that moment. And when the planes drew a heart in the sky, everyone went like 'OMG! SO NICE!!' Quite sweet as well actually.

video

Credits to joel for taking this vid

That day isnt joel's day for using the vending machine. He got scammed of $2 while trying get a drink. Actually he was just trying to get a bottle of mineral water, but when he put the coin inside and pressed for the drink, nothing came out. The same happened when he pulled the coin return lever. So he tried a second time. This time, youming pressed the button. And guess what. NOTHING came out. haha. After that, joel said he was gonna get a coke before youming went to wack the mineral water's button ahead of him. Apparently, the vending machine isnt joel's "popular choice" anymore (the company which the machine belonged to was called 'The Popular Choice'). Tough luck, joel. =D

My personal favourite from the concert was a piece called "Mazama" by Jay Chattaway. Sounds really nice to me.

Went to have some fun after the concert. While doing so, i found out that height jokes were extremely funny. Especially if there are those vertically challenged ones around in person for you to laugh at. haha. And and and yan jun suspected that there was something going on between youming and joel. Personally, if i didnt know them, i might have belived that it was true, what with the same phone model and the way which they talked with each other. xD

After reaching tampines, we went to north park. While i was there, memories washed over me like waves on a beach. Thought of the time which we used to play there, the time which we still could have fun, the jokes which we shared and the games that we played. All happening there. Happy times those were.

I thought i knew what was stress back then, but on hindsight, i knew nothing.

Okok, i shall stop here before this post gets too emo.

As i was saying, we were having fun at north park. More jokes from joel (this time, its about something which cannot be said here). xD. Took some pictures and stuff like that before yan jun had to go home. Dispersed back to our respective homes after that with me sending yunjun home and joel doing the same for youming. Poor marcel went alone. =X

Oh ya, i found out that yunjun's had a cousin in table tennis. And she's none other than atikah. Totally caught me off guard there.. =.=

HAPPY
BIRTHDAY
CHESTER
!!
Yay!! Haha.


The mood to study is really coming into me. Thats a good thing i suppose. No better time to have it than now. At the same time, i am also looking forwards to the 2 concerts this weekend. I guess thats the last of the fun which i am going to have for a long long time. So i'll try to enjoy the 2 nights as much as possible. =D

Started off with amath this morning. Didnt understand half of what mrs pong was saying until the last 10 mins of the lesson. Before that, i was reminded of my incompetence at amath by sylvia, who asked me how to solve a log question. Wasted like 15 mins thinking of how to solve it. Turned out that i cant solve it anyway. Looks like i need to brush up my amath. Fast.

Today was ownage day. First instance:
[removed, by the request of leping]
those who wanna know come find me. haha xD
Second instance:
During english. Jon was slacking around, doing nothing although there was work to be completed. Ms zahra comes over, "Jonathan, what do you think you are doing?"
Jon:, "erm, something.."
MZ: "this is my lesson, why are you doing other subject's work during my lesson?" (got chem stuff on the table)
Jon, " i never do! is at home do one!"
MZ, "You mean this is your homework?"
Jon, "Ya!"
MZ, "Ok, but you are supposed to be doing my work, and you are not doing it. I want to see something on your paper"
Jon, "....."
Owned. xD

Is it me, or are the teachers getting more edgy as well? o.0

Addicted to that laughter
Addicted to that smile
For that i would go the extra mile

Monday, June 23, 2008

The first day of school is over! Finally too. It feels as i was at the school for 2 days. I swear the holidays didnt pass as slowly.

For me, going back to school has 2 main plus points.
1) Get to see my friends
2) Gets me into a studying mood

For some reason, i just cant seem to study much during the holidays. Yes, i can do some homework here and there, but i cant really go into hardcore studying mode. But now that school has started once again, i can finally go stick my nose into some book without getting distracted easily.

The day started out pretty well at first, but started to go downhill after around 1pm. It started off just like any other monday; With assembly. Assembly went quite well i must say, with that holiday announcement and skit. Even the grooming check was quite jolly, with phil being the butt of our jokes. What with his long sideburns, fringe and back and black socks. We (lawton, leon and me) were going " eh, 'cher look at his fringe, look at his sideburn and socks, haiyo.. must go cut la. where can so long one" In the end, phil got caught for nearly everything on his body, including his long fingernails, which we forgot to point out to the teacher. Too bad we didnt get a chance to show to the teacher his shoes had brown designs on it. xP

So blah blah blah till after lunch break. My brain got a little fuzzy after eating lunch. You know why? Disclaimer: Bio stuff coming up. Skip the next portion if u dun like bio

Because, when u eat, your body will channel more blood to the adominal area (namely the alimentary canal) so as to provide it with nutrients and oxygen to aid in digestion and absorbtion. The main nutrient that is used up by the alimentary canal in the digestion is glucose. The oxidation of glucose gives off energy, which is used for the cells in the alimentary canal to perform active transport and peristalsis. Hence, since more blood is channeled to the alimentary canal, less blood will be present in other areas of your body, including the brain. So, lesser blood present in the brain means that the brain cannot perfrom at its peak capacity, resulting in sluggish actions and retarded thinking after a heavy meal. Edit: note that it is NOT the blood itself which helps your brain to function well. It is the nutrients and oxygen in your blood which does that. Thank you. (:

So anyway, as i was saying, my brain got a little fuzzy after lunch. It wasnt that bad during bio, 'cause i still can concentrate on the lesson after making an effort to do so. (We learned about reproduction in plants.) But it got really bad during Emath EPP. I cant concentrate, i got really sleepy and stuff like that. I cant even solve sums which i know i can solve when my head is clear. That was how bad it was.

So, the moral of the story? Do not eat too much if you want to concentrate on something, be it lessons or whatever.

Edit: I am quitting all forms of entertainment from now on until end of O levels. I am quitting maple, private server included, as well as whatever else i am going to play. Nothing is going to make me join a new game right now. And no, i am not joking. However, i will still continue to blog. Or at least, up till around week 6 or so. After that, blog posts will be extremely infrequent and inconsistant, if not none at all. (:

Yay, i have come to the end of this post. You have my gratitude. =D

EAP IS OVER!!!


Too bad, i was just starting to like it.. =.=
But thats nothing to celebrate about, since it means that the school term is starting and the prelims are coming.


SO, no more procrastinating, no more playing, and more studying, more revising and more chionging..


I just hope that i can practice wad i preach. Its not that easy you know? Sometimes, i just wish that things were as easy as i say they would be. But hey, there's no free lunch in the world. So we all gotta work for what we want, right?


ok, wadever, i am getting all naggy and stuff. Although it is the end of the holidays and the big O's are only ~4 months away, i am still a little in the dun-feel-like-studying mood. Gotta slap myself to reality if i still dun wake up soon (and no, i dun want any help with that). But i do want help in amath. (:


This week was really short. Gone in a blink of an eye. If only it had lasted longer..


Oh well..


Dun have anything to say..


.....


.....


.....


ok, wadever..


I wish i could help u,
I wish i had more to say,
But words simply fail me when those times arise.
I really want to say,
i really want to tell,
But you are not here, i can only hear that echoes of my cries..

Sunday, June 15, 2008

Here it comes.. >.<

Today is the last holiday which we (sec 4's) are going to have for a long, long time. The next school holiday is in September, during which we will be busy chionging for the O levels, so you can hardly call that a holiday.

The prelims will be starting in week 7, but the teachers would be going all out to prepare us for it starting tomorrow. So brace yourselves, for we would be in for a rough ride. And that ride wouldn't be ending anytime soon.

Look on the bright side though, after the end of O levels (last paper for me, which is DnT, ends on November 4th), we would be FREE! For 2 whole months, we would have all the time in the world to do anything we want to do. Perhaps its that particular prospect which gives us the strength to endure whatever the teachers and school throw at us for the coming months.

However, at the moment, we would have to work hard for the 'A' we all want. And hopefully, we can all get it.



Really funny when they fight. haha

Hello! I am gonna make this one short. Partly because i do not have much to say. But also erm... okok, its just because i do not have much to say. Wanted to blog just for the sake of blogging. haha

Nothing spectacular today. In fact, i think its one of the longest days of my life. Went to the library to do amath early in the morning.. managed to solve a few questions which i cant solve yesterday, which really gave me a sense of satisfaction. Too bad that sensation didnt last long. Not too long after, i resumed building my sandcastle in the air..

It was when i was about to leave when i realised that sitting by the windows isnt too bad either. Better than sitting at the reference section at any rate. At least u had the view of the 'outside world' to entertain u when you are bored.. ok. i am getting random here. haha



actually, i think my temper have been a little short of late. I think its because the holiday (if you can call them holidays) are drawing to a close and i dun think i have accomplished much. I may have snapped at a few people unintentionally bacause of this, but i hope that you people understand that it was totally unintentional. Specifically, i think i would have to apologise to teck li for being a little sharp when he just smsed a simple question. And also to yanci and cherngjye for pangseh-ing them at the bus stop. Sorry, i just dun feel like going to the beach today.. Hope u all can understand..

Okok, i realised that i have been blogging rather irregularly these few weeks. And to think that i used to blog nearly everyday when i first started this blog. I guess some of that enthusiasm is wearing off already. Nevertheless, i will still continue to blog until maybe around 3 weeks before prelims. So, do stick around, there is still plenty to see. Haha

I remember seeing something which made me laugh like crazy on saturday. You will never guess it. Its cherng jye's nose hair! I was discussing something with him at first, then when i looked up to his face from my book, i saw this thing sticking out of his nose. Upon closer inspection, it appeared to be black. When i refocused my lenses on it, i discovered that there are strands of those things! Comprehension dawned upon me. I realised what those things were.

Actually, it didnt take that long. All of the things which happened above took place very quickly. In actual timing, it only took perhaps around 2-3 seconds for me to realised what it was. What's more, i saw it at the library. So you can imagine how hard it was for me to stifle my laughter, especially after seeing his reaction when i told him what i was laughing at. He was trying to stuff it back up his nose for goodness's sake. Like, omgzxz.. 0.0

Haha. enough of the sick person already. Back to yesterday then. Went cycling at east coast with teckli, cherngjye, youming, sylvia and yanci. Quite fun actually, because the last time i went cycling with friends was around last year's december holidays. And i didnt cycle back then. I went blading. Ended up with some abrasions as a result. Its a pity we didnt decide to go to east coast park this time round. The length of Pasir ris park is simply too small for any real cycling fun.

All the same, it was quite a great day. Went to watch the sunset after cycling. Cherng jye, yanci and me were trying to determine the direction of the longshore drift. I spent quite a little time on that, in fact, cos it seems to be flowing from east to west. But after staring at for several minute, i realised that it was flowing from west to east. There are evidences of erosion on the west side to support that answer as well. Lol, i managed to apply SS and geography into my life. Not bad not bad! =D

Although it was not a cloud-free sky, the sunset was still quite beautiful. The way which the sun's rays get reflected off the clouds is magnificent. Too bad the camera cannot capture that image. But never mind, i took a picture of it with my heart. Remembered ms zahra talking about that 'taking a picture with your heart' in class. I think her email or lj's title is something like that.


Here are some pictures..








Check out the sun's rays streaming through the cloud. COOL! xD





Sky...





More skies

Dead beat

Ok, thanks to the MJC soccer trials, i've got:
1) an injured pinky (left hand)
2) even more sprained thumb (right hand)
3) scraped knee (from all the diving around for the ball) (left leg)
4) sore feet (again, from all the diving) (both feet)
5) semi-sprained wrist (left hand)

Yup, thats about it. Got 20 days exactly to recover myself so that i can get injured again. lol. Hopefully i wont be knocked around as much on the 25th.

About the trials then. From NAS, we've got amalul, deon, tzuming, gordon, jinliang, teckli, me and leping. And no, leping isnt there to play, she's there for fun. I actually arrived at MJ nearly an hour before the trials start (hey, i didnt know how long the bus will take to reach right? so i leave home early lor).

Played a match with another team. Quite boring actually, cos i am the keeper and my team is the attacking one. Who wants to guess how many times i touched the ball? Go tag your answer, i might give u a prize if u get it right. lols. After the match, you wont believe how i was abused; I was to stand at the goalpost, and wait for the MJC team to shoot at me. I was given 2 seconds to get up after every ball i dived for. So i was like, fly in this direction, get hit by the ball, get up, fly in that direction, get hit by the ball, get up, fly in this direction, get hit by the ball again, and blah blah for i dunno how long.

Looks like MJC arent Singapore's champion JC soccer team for no reason. Their ball will literally knock the wind out of you if u catch it. So i mainly just block. Lucky junyan lent me his gloves. If not, i think my hands will drop off. That was a joke. Ok, forget it. I know its not funny. Even i dun find it funny. >.<

I think i will go and rest now. Allow my injuries to heal. So bye bye..

Hello blog. Although today is the third day of the holidays, (for us sec 4's) it already feels as if its over. With all the homework, revisions and whatnots, how many of you out there call this a holiday? Planning to slog my guts out (not literally, of course) at the library this holiday to make my results better. Hopefully, it will work.

Actually wanted to blog [s]yesterday[/s] two days before, but unfortunately, just when i was about to blog, something cropped up over at Google's server. Gave up after half an hour of trying-and-not-succeeding. =.= When i was trying to post this post yesterday, my parents dragged me off to Giant. zZzZz

Okok, in chronological order then. {1/6/08}
Went for breakfast, as usual. I only remembered one thing from that day actually; When waiting for my parents to finish shopping for groceries, (we were at bedok) I saw this really heartwarming scene. There was this woman on a wheelchair who had just gotten off a car at the drop-off point. There were family members trying to get the wheelchair up the ledge fruitlessly. Many bystanders were staring at first, but some went forwards to help after a while. Whoever was the one who said that Singaporeans have no courtesy? That statement is totally errorneous, for goodness sake.

(2/6/08)
I dun remember anything on that day except for going to play soccer with SiYuan,Cherngjye and gang. Oh, and blogger screwed up, so i cant blog.

(3/6/08)
i was trying to post this particular post when my parents dragged me off to Giant. Didnt buy anything in the end. Went to ikea to buy some wooden planks to make a DIY shoe rack after the painters finished their jobs on the block.

(4/6/08) {today}
Went to library in the morning, as usual, with the exception of Shaiful joining me. Must be he pangseh his friends, cos got so many people calling him. lol. Met Jiayu there as well. Got the numbers of a few other people whom i know, but didnt have the chance to ask for thier numbers until now. (actually i didnt ask for Kent and Godwins' numbers, i self-service, use their phone to miss call mine. Expect for jiayu of course, cos i dun do such things to a girl cos i am gentleman-ly Besides, her phone wasnt in sight. xD)
Went to play soccer again after that, with shaiful joining. Lost my sock (again). And had to look for it in darkness (where's shaiful? xP).

(5/6/08) {tomorrow}
Going for DSA to MJC through soccer. All the bes to myself, teckli and gordon. Hope we all get in. =)


Take my hand tonight,
Lets not think about tomorrow,
Take my hand tonight,
We can find some place to go..
