09 in review

Looks like the year is coming to an end. There's this phrase saying that "All things end happy. If its not happy, then its not the end". Apparently, its not so true for me. Indeed the year is ending, but to be honest, i dun really feel all that excited about it. Yes, i'll admit that tons of interesting things has happened this year, but there have been bouts of emo-ness every now and then as well. But oh well, i guess that's wad Life is about.

This year started normally enough, with the start of JC life on the 1st of Febuary. At that time, i was young, both physically and mentally. Hardly a year has passed, and now, i feel much more mature. Just 11 months ago, i wouldnt have stayed up so late to do stuff. Just 11 months ago, i wouldnt have cared so much about others. There's that X factor in JC education which pushes you to grow up if you wanted to survive.

Being the child as i was at the beginning of the year, i thought JC would be like secondary school. But of course with that mindset, i was struggling 2 months into the cirriculum. In that short 2 months, i realised that if i were to keep myself afloat in JC, i would have to sacrifice. Also in that short 2 months, i have discovered the beginning of a new passion.

Of course, a smooth voyage never occurs and storms will always pop up over the horizon. The passion that i had went through some tests, both from myself and others, but its the personal ones that were daunting. I was born as a thinker. I like thinking a lot. But sometimes, i manage think to much, and end up emoing about one thing or the other. (Well, mostly its just that one thing, but nevermind.). But now, looking back at what i have thought/suspected, some of them does seem to be true.

To be continued.. No point in continuing.

And hell, i wish i knew what you were thinking..

Watch out

Intelligence was gathered yesterday, yet today, the battle horns have already been sounded. A silent war is raging, people. If you didnt know about it in the first place, you couldnt tell at all.
And yes, its lethal.

Diary entry number 2   <--- Just ignore this. Its for personal usage.

My life has just taken an interesting turn. Seems like the real excitement is only just beginning..

Yup, its nice

Went to watch Avatar 3D today as part of Huijing/Amanda/Gillian's birthday celebration.
The movie was just plain nice. Good storyline and good graphics, and for once, i actually felt that the $10 spent was worth it (as opposed to Coraline 3D). Yup, the movie's a great piece of art. Go watch it, people.

It feels nice when my brain just remember those tiny bits of info about you.

Have you ever stood less than 1 metre away from someone, yet feel so far away?

Everytime you smile, I smile

Jump Then Fall is stuck in my head!!! Ok, maybe its cos i had it on repeat for the past 4 hours.. o.0


Went to give gillian an early pre-birthday birthday surprise today at 9am at her house with amelia, andik and yiting. She kinda half freaked out when she saw us come with the cake and stuff, so you can consider it as a success.

It was a movie (Bride Wars. Though i strongly opposed, i was outvoted 4 to 1) afterwards, followed by several rounds of Rummy-O, which was actually quite fun. Then its photo-taking + dog-playing time (upload the pictures, gillian!). And i must say, the dogs are really nice to play with. Hahas.

Lunch was at Mad Jack's, where we slacked for a while, taking yet more pictures and crapping and playing with leftover food since there's such a heavy rain. In the end, we left like nearly 1.5 hours later, at some time close to 4pm.

Seriously, the whole day just seemed to fly past like nobody's business. Its like, only a couple of hours ago that i stepped into gillian's house to surprise her. No wonder they say good times never last. Nonetheless, hope you had a great day, gillian! =D

Everytime you smile, i smile

Jump Then Fall- Taylor Swift

I like the way you sound in the morning,
We're on the phone and without a warning
I realize your laugh is the best sound I have ever heard

I like the way I can't keep my focus,
I watch you talk you didn't notice
I hear the words but all I can think is we should be together

Every time you smile, I smile
And every time you shine, I'll shine for you

Whoa oh I'm feeling you baby
Don't be afraid to jump then fall, jump then fall into me

Baby, I'm never gonna leave you,
Say that you wanna be with me too
Cause I'm gonna stay through it all so jump then fall

Well I like the way your hair falls in your face
You got the keys to me I love each freckle on your face, oh,
I've never been so wrapped up,
Honey, I like the way you're everything I've ever wanted

I had time to think it oh-over and all I can say is come closer,
Take a deep breath and jump then fall into me

Every time you smile, I smile
And every time you shine, I'll shine for you

Whoa oh I'm feeling you baby
Don't be afraid to jump then fall, jump then fall into me

Baby, I'm never gonna leave you,
Say that you wanna be with me too
Cause I'm gonna stay through it all so jump then fall

The bottoms gonna drop out from under our feet
I'll catch you, I'll catch you
When people say things that bring you to your knees,
I'll catch you
The time is gonna come when you're so mad you could cry
But I'll hold you through the night until you smile

Whoa oh I need you baby
Don't be afraid please
Jump then fall, jump then fall into me

Baby, I'm never gonna leave you,
Say that you wanna be with me too
Cause I'm gonna through it all so jump then fall

Jump then fall baby
Jump then fall into me, into me

Every time you smile, I smile
And every time you shine, I'll shine
And every time you're here baby, I'll show you, I'll show you
You can jump then fall, jump then fall, jump then fall into me, into me

Make my wish come true..

Merry Christmas in advance to all of you out there. =D

All I Want For Christmas Is You- Mariah Carey

Never knew i could feel that much.
 That's The Way I Loved You- Taylor Swift


For the people who came for the chalet during the in 2 days, here's a big thank you. You people rock. Although the actual attendence number was rather small, we still had lots of fun. =D

Although there were more ppl during day 1, there isnt much to do after the sun set. So in the end, we ended up barbecueing and eating lots of food. There were plans to watch Avatar at 11.40pm after that. But when we got to Ehub, it was sold out, with just 3 separate seats left. So its back to the chalet we went to spend the night, awake, thanks to the ruckus the next door was making. =.=

Day 2 started at 6am, with just 1.5 hours of sleep, thanks to the ruckus the next door was having. =.= The watch sunrise decision was a complete fail since there was so much clouds, so there was no big-bright-orange-globe rising over the horizon to go "ooh" and "ahhh" or "that's so nice!!" about. Then there's the walk to the playground for Amelia, Andik and Huijing to learn to climb the pyramid. Only Amelia succeeded. The other 2 gave up when they were 1.5m off the ground. =.=
Oh, and jansen was asleep while we did all that.
Then it was skating.  I'm proud to say that i successfully taught jansen how to skate in an hour (though he didnt really need much guidance) and the same goes for gillian to amelia and andik. =D
The remainder of the day was spent at Escape with gillian, amelia and andik, where we went for nearly all the rides multiple times, with the kiddy roller coaster being the most (five times). Gillian simply refused to get onto Wet and Wild with the reason being that the water was dirty, but me and andik went ahead and got really wet anyway. The new Haunted House wasnt really all that scary at all, and all of them just loved the Go Karts after i managed to persuade them to get onto it the first time. And all of us, with the exception of andik, succeeded in convincing that we're 18 so we can drive in pairs (yeah, we only got onto the beginner's track, though i did want to go for the advanced track)

The chalet can be considered as successful, since i did have fun, esp on the 2nd day. =D But i swear next year, i'm not gonna organise the chalet again. Or at least, not do it single-handedly.

Your smile makes it all worthwhile

For those of you who do not have/read Facebook:

Hi guys. This isnt really an event okay, i just had to find a way to send everyone a message.

ANYWAY. I went to see Ms Lai today and okay this is what you all have been waiting for: THEY ARE REMOVING THE TURNSTILE.

Heh. Okay before i tell you what else she said, i promised Ms Lai that i’d explain the reasons for the turnstile installation first. Its Not to catch latecomers, because actually, our college doesn’t really have much of a latecomer problem. Its actually for security reasons, because people keep getting stuff stolen. And also, random strangers keep coming in to use our toilets and sit in the canteen and that understandably poses a problem because what if they are old men and go in the girls toilets or something right. This is actually because alot of students have the habit of leaving the gate open when they leave school, and anyone can come in through the unsupervised gate as a result. Which all adds up to quite a big problem because strangers coming in poses as a threat to the students and teachers (Plus the theft cases) and the school came up with a way to increase security and minimise non-meridians from coming in- The Turnstile.

Unfortunately, all the unforeseen problems you guys have been experiencing started popping up. When we officially brought the problem to their attention sometime in early December (finalised petition was sent in on 2nd December which we have to thank Danial for cause he did it up really well, you can download it here: ) they actually had a meeting amongst themselves and tried to come up with a suitable solution while putting in temporary measures to make it easier for us to get out- if you’ve been wondering why you no longer need to press the button to leave college, now you know.

So they actually came up with a solution which i actually think is far better than the ones we came up with. What they're going to do is to MOVE the turnstile to the main gate. You know, the side-main gate that is always locked down and leads from the canteen? It was locked down due to the H1N1 situation actually, so that there aren’t so many entrances to school and it isn’t so difficult to monitor the people coming in to make sure we’re not infected. They're moving the whole turnstile thing there, so we can go out when it rains and when we feel like taking bus 3 for some odd reason or the other.

As for the side gate, this is the good news: they're going to give us back the old side gate. The one which kind of looks like a huge swinging door. They're going to station a security guard there in the afternoons to make sure random strangers dont come in and stuff and that we don’t leave the gate open when we leave for the aforementioned reasons. And if we go out for Friday lunch after school/before CCA and want to get back, the security guard will open the gate for us.

Not only that- they’ve actually taken into consideration the complaints posted on the facebook wall about students getting wet when it rains, and are going to install a screen at the side and try to fix the water-dripping-onto-our-heads problem.

So thats about it. I honestly think its incredible that they’ve done so much serious consideration and brainstorming regarding this issue so that it’ll benefit us the most, so Please don’t go around saying “Yay we won the war” or something like that because there is no war, we are not a military regiment, and this outcome would really have been impossible without the open-mindedness of Ms Lai and the school board. After listening to her rationale for the gate followed by the solution they’ve come up with today, i really do think that they’ve put in alot to make sure the student welfare is maximised and she was really incredibly nice and reasonable about the whole thing so i don’t really think she’s like Hitler much, no.

Really got to apologise to everyone about the name of the group though, The New MJC Sidegate is Retarded TTM isn’t really a very appropriate heading to a petition, but being as tech-stupid as i am, i really cant figure out how to change it. Its a good thing they didn’t take offense.

Also, a big thankyou to Danial for editing the petition, Jon for his slightly deranged but mad funny video, and most of the Callisto House Com for helping me come up with points and what to say to Ms Lai when i saw her.

So thats it, you should be able to see our new (or old, depending on how you look at it) sidegate up by the new school year, hopefully. You can once again go to Macs for lunch or something and still be back on time for CCA.

Enjoy your Friday lunches, everybody.

That's a million thanks to jemimah there. But to be honest, i think the turnstile has actually started to grow on me already. o.0

Why don't adults understand that we teenagers are best left alone?


If you hold back feelings because you’re afraid of getting hurt, you end up hurting, anyway.

If it didn’t really matter, you wouldn’t be spending so much time thinking about it.

You can try and hide your feelings but they won’t disappear. 


I feel so behind on homework.

I feel so broke about buying so many presents for the first time in my life.

I feel so busy, yet excited about the chalet.

Find a road to a humble abode where both of our routes meet

I'm all about Taylor Swift and Owl City nowadays.

I'm only up when you're not down
Don't wanna fly if you're still on the ground

I'm only me when I'm with you - Taylor Swift

Cheer up and dry your damp eyes and tell me when it rains
And I'll blend up that rainbow above you and shoot it through your veins

Rainbow Veins - Owl City

We'll turn out all of the lights and set this ballroom aglow

Saltwater Room - Owl City

Cookies are:
High in Fats!
High in Calories!

But more importantly..

Baking attempt No. 1 wasnt too bad. At least they taste alright.

A correction to my previous post, as the chinese tea kept me awake till 3am in the morning.

And currently i have around me 4 idiots, 2 on either side, who don't know how to shut up in the library. =.=

3 random thoughts

I'm sick of wedding dinners.

Drinking nearly 2 pots of chinese tea doesnt seem to have any effect in keeping me awake.

I probably wont work as an organiser in the future.

So i dun have to think

So we had a studio shoot for prom night 2009, Viva La Glam, yesterday. It was chaotic, but fun at the same time as well. Chaotic, because it was just plain squeezy for ten or sometimes, twenty people to look at the photos at a single viewing station. Fun, because i got to learn a lot about studio such as how to arrange people and wad poses couples can adopt.

The only downside is, we had to pack up somewhere past 12.30am (even the SCs were gone), and reached home around 1.40am. What's worse: Waking up at 7am to go for a Chemistry course at NUS. =.=

And speaking of which, makes my blood boil. To quote Weiliang:
Its not worth the two hundred and seventy six dollars.

And i quite agree.

To make it worth the money (or at least, feel better about it), we were quite liberal with the reactants and materials. Either way, one thing that we're satisfied with is the price of the food. It was just freaking CHEAP. Even the vending machines were charging below a dollar. Think $1.60 for a small packet of snack at MJC.
With that amount of money, you can get a plate of rice with 3 dishes there. Oh well, i think i'll get fat when i go U, with the cheap food and everything. =.=

We're tied together with a smile, and yeah, we're coming undone.

I'm Team Carlisle.

What can i say?
I think Taylor Lautner's (Jacob) body is nicer than Robert Pattinson's (Edward, in case you still don't know) cos its more tanned (i'm not gay).
But i still prefer Peter Facinelli (Carlisle) and  Ashley Greene (Alice).

Overall, New Moon was ok. Except for the ending, which was epic. Epic fail.

Rusted brains

I feel so dumb right now.

Need to get started soon now.

C-h-a-r-l-i-e, charlie, charlie

OGL camp was great.
My camp food was better than others.
Bathing at 12am without a heater isnt as bad as it sounds.
Water games are only fun if you get really really wet.
Some people cant teach dances.
Last but not least, Phobos Charlie is the bomb.

Wednesday, December 2, 2009


OGL camp tmr. I still havent packed yet.

Fine, i agree that i'm lazy, seeing as i dun even want to move my finger to tidy up my desktop (PW files are still there).

I'll do it soon. I swear.

P.S. Exerting yourself after a long time of inactivity makes your muscles ache like hell.
P.S.S. Mosquito bites itch for damn long. It has been 3 days already. =.=

Moral of the story: Be a good guy.


Brainless thinking

Disclaimer: This post may sound highly disjointed and uncoherent. Simply because its meant to be like that. And because i lazy link the things up.

With that said, here i go.

I like the new Lightning Revenant in DotA. It has cool skills.

What are holidays when you have to go back to school every single day, including saturday? But in self-rebuttal, i suppose it can be considered as a holiday since there are no lectures and you don't have to do tutorials (for now).

The bites i managed to get on Sunday are still itching. Its highly irritating to not scratch, and highly satisfying (guiltily so) when i do.

The sunset looks really nice from my window. Not that i can actually see the Sun (you'd be nuts to stare into it right now), but it is casting a rather warm shade of orange onto the walls. And somehow, that makes me feel happy.

The turnstile topic is still hot. Talked about it to school, and from school. And it looks as if they have good news.


I am so not thinking about you.

Cos it hurts
