i will be leaving in about 11 hours time so.. until wednesday 5pm guys :)

Vivace was okay lah. generally a very hectic walk through all the various booths, saw tonnes of familiar faces (hi!!) and signed up for a whole buncha crap. oh, had free milo too! i brought kiat's dua jia camera to show off and take self portraits which was funnnnnn. haha. pics up when i dive back okay.

After which i crashed ben yingzhi ryan and grace's pool session! :) hehe took A FEW incriminating photos that i WILL POST if ryan does not accept my blackmail. haha. but the instructor KOH looks a bit fierce. i hope i remember all my dive stuff! nervousness. tmr must wake up at like 530am to take train all e way down to like, bishan. urgh. far shit.

Oh after pool session i went to meet ah beng to go to guan yin miao.. needed to qiu ping an for tmr's trip, u know? after all 7 month is coming. scary sia. mum likes to freak me out. he was so sweet buy chrysanthemum tea for me cos i got no voice! even though im not sure it helps sore throat but thanks lots :) trooped to the new national library to check out the premises... and it looks like quite a good place to study! some more so near school. but the borrowing collection is PATHETIC i tell you. only 1 floor for borrowing n SEVEN FUCKING FLOORS of reference!?? like. whats the use if you cant borrow it out?? but i guess the wireless network and the presence of plenty of power sockets around means surfing on my tablet will be a breeze, whee. looking forward to mugging my ass off here yes.

damn shagged sia. hurhur. still need to pack for tomorrow and bathe and buy some snacks and catch up on some sleep! i only slept 3 hrs last night and i was late for vivace, sorry hor og!

yesterday's supper at 85 was like THE GREATEST dudes! we ate char kway teow stingray orh jian bak chor mee satay stingray hokkien mee and bbq chicken wing and the company was great! - veon whom we found out has portuguese and japanese great-grandparentage, rina who did a SUPER funny impression titled "sitting in a manual car with the clutch released too early", yanti who dropped her chopsticks into her teh tarik, fel who was forced to eat everything we didnt wanna eat, hongyi who proclaimed that cricket players are like fairies and ahmed who pretended to know who is tay kang hwa. ahahahah :P i love u guys!

so sad i just had instant mee for lunch. at 5pm. :( i need a chef. or a maid. or a boyfriend who can cook! haha no im just kidding. i need groceries otherwise i have nothing to work around with to cook myself a decent meal.

and actually i CAN go n get groceries just that i'm scared if i come home with too much perishables and i get too busy to cook them then it'll all spoil. what a waste of food.

grumble. at least supper with hongyi keith rina and ahmed and fel is worth looking forward to later.

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can’t you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain

Words are meaningless
And forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Enjoy the silence

THIS is a really really cool song. Depeche mode - enjoy the silence. Silence is quite predominant in my life now, judging by how a certain someone is not calling at all, leaving me to wonder why. hmmm.

Anyhows, i spent the entire day at ntu :) woke up at like 10am, had only 3 hrs of sleep was dying urghhhh. then quite nice of the ntu guys chris and zong ming to meet me for lunch at canteen 1. after that i visited ser at hall 6! and then my brother at hall 10! then go home. i was so tired i slept on the train.

BOON LAY what. how wrong i was. come out i drive until IMM then realise we r at jurong east. eat shit. then turn arnd go back onto pie.. drive some more.. then ehh! mummy said sth abt kje hor. so go onto kje. then drive drive then realise that ehhh how come the exit is woodlands road??!! wrong side of singapore!!! turn arnd and drive alllll the way back to pie before going in the correct direction again. sian diaoooo totallyyyy. ugh.

so i was 2 hrs late for acc og dinner. hehe :P lucky they havent leave yet lah! got 2 ex rgs-rj girls, shi yun (eugene zhuang's gf! and they're still going on strong woohoo) and serene this girl whom i think is ying ying's gd friend. yeah, seen her around before. The acjc girl alicia is damn cool too! haha. i liked her almost immeed. then there were 2 acjc guys.. 1 sajc guy. uh. 1 of the ac guys was steve i think he's ben's friend. then the other 2 guys were.. hmm.. a bit weird. like seriously a bit weird. uh. nvm. i hope they dont read this. haha.. after faci left we went to pac coffee outside city link for a nice chat i think that was quite nice :) hope asoc camp will be fun!

there are funny tiny red spots allll over my feet. i think i got bitten by mosquitoes. URK gross shit.

anyway took ser darling for a spin in the car just now, i was so bored! but it was also a good way to catch up and talk, been some time since 2 of us talked alone already.. poor girl's stressed and all caught up in NTU life! relaxxx girl you'll do fine once the dust settles on everything and you can see the path ahead clearly. juggling flaming torches and knives are tough, that's why only the experts do it. i think you are an expert! jia you wor.

to all those who have started school as well! jia you.

okay i just realised the part about juggling a bit no link but read it a few times and you'll get it.

meeting valerie for lunch tmr! i have this very strong feeling we'll end up not doing anything and just walk around aimlessly without a purpose. hur hur. i have lots to tell her, hope it wont affect my mood :/

Open up my eager eyes, cos i'm Mr Brightside

I just can’t look its killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibi
But it’s just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
‘Cause I’m Mr Brightside

This is a really cool song. as in.. not just the lyrics, it sounds great too! everyone should go and get it! (stress: get it aka via the appropriate channels like downloading off LEGAL sites and buying The Killers' CD.)

I’m coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I’m falling asleep
And she’s calling a cab
While he’s having a smoke
And she’s taking a drag
Now they’re going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it’s all in my head
But she’s touching his—chest
Now, he takes off her dress
Now, let me go

Chronic Halitosis

Do you know that when Listerine was invented in the 19th Century, it was marketed and sold as a surgical antiseptic? After which, it was distilled and sold as a floor cleaner and a cure for gonorrhea. Only in the 1920s did the company change direction and start to sell it as a cure for chronic halitosis, also commonly known as bad breath.


Watch what you put in your mouths, dudes.

ANYWAY i saw a cap at fossil i like so much! it's pink and says "Welcome to pair a dice." funny right! totally fits into the IR theme that Singapore is so into now. and its only 28, an okay price for a cap!! gian gian. but the only thing is that it's pink, not hot pink but maybe a more subdued version. i want a bisexual cap lah. those kind i can wear and my boyfriend can wear also, u know? hahahaha. er sorry talking cock again.

and also saw another one @ 77th street - the no rules one i think. or is it new york. hmmmm. i dont know. but anyways it is khaki or grey with a slight pink border. nice also! 24.90. and a BIT more bisexual than the pure pink fossil one.. i am temmmmpted! shite.

evening was spent with yixin! omg hasnt seen the girl in like, 2 years man. gosh. such a long time.. and she looks so different now.. but it was good to meet up after so long, u know, and reminisce of the good old days. :)

oh yes and i forgot to mention that i'm a renewed fan of techno! Yes. okay maybe not TECHNO techno but more like, trance/house/ministry of sound-ish kinda music. Its really nice to exercise to, walk down the street with and drive the car in! It keeps me happy, somehow. and the beats are head-boppingly nice! hehe. i hope m.o.s. opens in sg soon!

check this guy's web page out!!! his inspirational speech at the homepage is really, well, inspiring. really. go and read it. makes me wanna lose weight too! maybe i should start to walk from east coast to jurong east. think i'll take a total of... 3 days? or less? hahaha depending on which major expressway i take. ECP? PIE? AYE? got jam anot? hahahahaha sorry i'm a little cuckoo today.

at last night's performance, sandy's BRA was there and me + chloe commented that he looked hell lots like jacob tan A51. and as it turns out, what a surprise jacob sms-ed me today! i havent spoken to him since like, forever. i think since 2004 lor seriously. anyway.. he's in same camp as hongyi and keith and valmond and whoever else what not. cool. wonder how he is now.

[You say we've got nothing in common
No common ground to start from
And we're falling apart
You say the world has come between us
Our lives have come between us
But I know you just don't care

And I said "What about Breakfast at Tiffany's?"
She said "I think I remember the film
And as I recall, I think we both kinda liked it"
And I said "Well, that's the one thing we've got"

I see you, the only one who knew me
But now your eyes see through me
I guess I was wrong
So what now? It's plain to see we're over
I hate when things are over
When so much is left undone

And I said "What about Breakfast at Tiffany's?"
She said "I think I remember the film
And as I recall, I think we both kinda liked it"
And I said "Well, that's the one thing we've got"

You say we've got nothing in common
No common ground to start from
And we're falling apart
You say the world has come between us
Our lives have come between us
But I know you just don't care]

Breakfast at Tiffany's! i heard it at esplanade just earlier on, nellie c (yo yo!)'s aca group called lao langs performed it. hmm. why give themselves such an old name. anyways.. he looks different without specs! i almost couldnt recognise sia. came late cos i was w hongyi before that, we ate thai express = red rubies! yum yum. absolutely love the chewy texture of the water chestnut. and the coconut ice cream with nata de coco!! (ryan says he likes to read the blog when i comment about food. hi ryan!)

anyway back to B.A.T.. i always thought it was such a happy song!! i never knew the lyrics were so sad.. everytime some aca group performed it i thought "oh happy bouncy chumba chumba song" but now i look at the lyrics.. eeks. quite sad lah hor. i think the lyrics are befitting of some tear jerking lian xu ju song. korean perhaps? speaking of which there were a buncha young korean tourists hanging arnd the outdoor performance area after the performance was over, and 1 of them actually started singing some korean song for his friends!!! GUSHHH i thought he was good man! and he was not bad lah quite cute hehehehe shouldve gone up to him and shouted BOSHITA! but scully they dun understand my korean that would be even MORE paiseh. :P luckily michael not there haha.

yes and it was nice sitting with my lao langs talking cock and contemplating forming an ivox shuffle, hahaha and all the funny actions. mr yong is damn funny lah! hahah.. very long never hang out with them already, everytime after chorale either rush off somewhere or i gotta leave early. next week also, got smuve so gotta rush off after chorale too.

hmm anyways.. i think aca performances just bring up the feeling in me. cos i felt slight tinges of the same feeling i got watching val + co yest.. the "i love music! i love singing!" feeling. haha.

i sang this song, zhi dao by zhang hui mei at kbox that day.. quite an old ah mei song, from her fa shao album. and i forgot how much i loved this song! let the high notes soar!! :)

Diary of a Deranged Girlfriend

NOT that i am deranged... or attached for that matter. doodled this in my free time on the tablet. i am so frickin bored waiting for mummy!!

Anyway guys (and gals hur hur being politically correct here) i have a financial question for you. Suppose you have some money. And you take it and invest it in a particular fund. One day, you find that the fund is losing its value. Should you pull out to prevent further losses? Or should you keep your money inside for the hope that perhaps soon the value of this fund will rise again? the probability that the fund will rise again is not known. yep. please give me your answer i really need to know what is the general consensus!

uh please leave the poll answers in the comments section, thanks!

Greenday - Give Me Novocaine

[I don’t want to wait
For our lives to be over
I want to know right know
What will it be
I don’t want to wait
For our lives to be over
Will it be yes or will it be

- Paula Cole: Wait

Nice song! Val did a solo at her dischordant concert for this one.. hearing them sing just brings back SO many memories, it just reminds me of the reason why i love singing. Flash back to all the old songs we used to do, all our BC practices, then fast forward to VJ choir, singing at open house and what not, doing harmonising, taking the solo, Bonnie & Clyde with siqing sufi ngeeshin (oh my gosh i totally loved it), plus soul sistas and adi, singing in choir room. gosh! all the good times. ANd of course there was vjchoir.

Yes, watching them sing just drives home the reason i'm still singing now, the reason why i'm in victoria chorale. it feels good to have that come back to you once in a while :)

And i finally made my peace with renji! yes lets hoping there wont be any more daoing from now on! a few more to go though, especially one with a particular NG ZY. hmm. i really feel like going up to him and saying:" hi! i'm yen han. do you remember me? i'm your ex girlfriend!" ahahahahaha. woohoo. i rock.

[See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you

Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or without you
With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I’m waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body bruised, she’s got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you

With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you
With or without you]

Valerie's alvin sang it as a solo at the concert and i managed to catch it even though i came in late! wah.. she wasnt joking boy.. he really has a good voice! good job!! and congrats in general to dischordant i think it was a job well done and i'm really happy for them! until val comes back from penn then :(

oh yes just wanna add too. i had a good time at chorale today! i duno, suddenly when i was singing i recalled some lines from Spencer Johnson's The Present that made me wake up and tell myself stop being sad! focus on what you're doing now! and suddenly i just gave everything and sang loudly and perfectly and focused on singing all the songs. and it felt good, yes!!

oh 1 lastttt thing. check out Elizer's new blog! yes the boy has decided to start one. i ABSOLUTELY LOVE HIS TEMPLATE it is to die for!!!

Whose woods these are I think I know,
His house is in the village though.
He will not see me stopping here,
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer,
To stop without a farmhouse near,
Between the woods and frozen lake,
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake,
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep,
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

i can't believe my mum lah she's just unreasonable. i go around doing so much shit for her and she comes and accuses me like that. wah lau.

and it sucks having no one to gripe to, for fear of sounding unfilial. ugh.

I love being poser! Bought the style magazine when i was at mph with vanessa yest, and these darlings came free! i think i paid 5 bucks for the shades lah cos i flipped through the magazine in under 5 min and threw it away after that. it has no reading value whatsoever.

We sang sad songs at kbox, ranging from tong hua by guang liang to jie kou by jay chou to our current sad fave - forever love, wang li hom!!!! its so damn sad :( and it doesnt help when you can relate totally to the lyrics. sad sad kbox day.

3 happy girls! i love my darlings :) i think i absolutely went crazy at the end when i started dancing to sammi cheng techno aka mei fei se wu! if only i could stay on and dance further! i think it was embarrasing cos the kbox doors made of plastic/tempered glass (basically it was transparent) and the people in the other room could see i was going high on that song. techno rocks totes!

i've given my all...exhausted everything in me.
maybe one day i'll get some of that back.

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I'm sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won't lose no sleep on that,
'Cause I've got a plan.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Fucking high,
And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.
You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it's time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.

beautiful song. you're beautiful.

Wheelchair Antics

Spent the last 45min or so wheeling in fun trying to get around in my mum's wheelchair :P (haha, pun intended!) was so freaking tired after having to wash allll our combined underwear plus my purple tank, my white berms and my green (ugly green, i must add) SMUve t-shirt. its DAMN tiring squatting there scrubbing ok!! now i know how it feels like to be a maid!

so i needed a breather. and tonights night breeze is really FWAH damn shiok. just sit there on the wheelchair and watch the national day flags hanging outside my condo fluttering in the wind... (reminisce about camp day2: 5k hike to chinese garden and counting flags! ugh)

then i did a test run for mom: what if the wheelchair accidentally rolled down the step to the kitchen? will she be able to pull herself and the chair back up into the living room again? i can do it lah, but duno if she has the arm strength to pull the wheel of the chair up. and we realised that we're quite stupid. shouldve gotten the electric wheelchair, just press one button then go forward liao. today i came home she complained of arm ache, haha.. its okay mommy, can get biceps :)

anyway i guess in a way to compensate, i bought mom din tai fung dinner. da bao sia! haha and today was the first time i went grocery shopping alone! my gawd. i just realised i have been unfilial for a long while. i dont even know what my mum's favourite food is.. what she like to eat.. and all that. all along the stuff she buys when we go grocery shopping tog, or what she buys back is all the stuff that me and the bro like to eat, not anything that she has shown interest in. So i made an effort to remember and find something she liked, and i came up with....

peanuts. yes, farmer brand peanuts. i couldnt even find the hand brand one! ntuc tampines mall is screwed up!

oh oh! i painted my toenails black at bu's house! damn fun lah. i have pretty toes! can go club tmr! and it looks nice i think im getting the hang of painting nails :P but of course must remove before thursday comes.. ahahah.

Pissed at ginny for coming so late to tampines! i was there so early i had time to shop around for groceries and buy my FIRST PAIR OF LEVIS JEANS! yes u heard me right. today was the momentuous moment that i bought a pair of levi's. woohoo. i will treat it like a precious gem.

And acting cute together!! haha now i know why all the ah lians and bimbos of the world love to pose with their chin down and eyes facing upward towards the camera.. not only does it make u look cuter, it is also a very fun act cute action! ahaha. i sound like a brainless bimbo.

Cheers! A toast to bubu for getting her license and on the first try! No doubt by HELLUVALOTOF fluke and good luck! she kena immediate failure still can pass lor! it must be the smile, babe. it must be the charm. haha. :)

short but sweet.

No, thats not a reference to my own height, thank you very much.
OG outing today was fun! i guess in part cos i was MUCH happier and more in my own skin as compared to the camp, when i was sad and missing people. had helluva lot of food (yum!) including live prawns which sadistic weida happily dropped into the steaming bowl of steamboat soup. but the live prawns taste way better than the frozen ones! Mmm. so thats how good/fresh seafood tastes like.

And the peng kang meat was very good! maybe its cos of the good chefs at my table - yingzhi and jeannie, (can never get her name spelling right) and i was just contented sitting there and waiting for the food to come. haha i'm always like that :P

after dinner it was off to SUPER FUNWORLD!! i am the bishi bashi queen lor totally. hahahahaah :P played a few other games here and there and tried my best to involve everyone in the group.... then it was the grand finale: Photo Hunt! Haha. my favourite game since rachel intro-ed it to me in sec3. and i've been playing it since then! not necessarily good at it but okay lah. and today we had so many brains playing it, we almost made it to the high score board! only 100,000 points short!

Looking forward to tomorrow!! it's east coast rollerblading with ginny, then go over to bu's house to make use of her bathing facilities and then prolly chit chat and talk cock some bit.. and then wednesday is PHOTO DAY with vanessa :P she just bought a new digicam i think the 2 of us will go crazzzzzy taking artistic shots! will deffy post some of those up here!

and thursday is my new timeline: watching finding nemo @ his house! haha. i cant believe he didnt watch finding nemo lor. it is like, THE ANIMATED MOVIE of all time or something! maybe ranked after shrek on my books, but still, a good movie nonetheless. i cant believe theres someone out there who hasnt watched it! gosh. but a bit sad cos i remember who i watched it with in the cinemas... and now he's no longer here. how fragile life is. xian liang we miss you!

i HATE driving with my dad! its like, nag nag naggggggggggggg. totally sian diao. oh why u never pull up handbrake and park at the cashcard gantry? keep to your lane! let the other driver pass! signal! why you on high beam! blahblahblahblahblah. damn irritating i tell you. ugh.

anyway i am shagged. i feel like an adult already, like nu er zhao gu mama u know? haha actually she could have been discharged at like 10am liao lor, but the stupid nurse (really stupid! not just a literal vulgarity!) said must wait for doctor to come and review. and we waited.

and waited.

and waited.

and then i went to ask and found out that doc said no need review, come back next week! wtf. seriously man. dont ever go to east shore hospital. their efficiency sucks. the admin is REALLY damn slow. anyway.. by the time we found out it was already like 1130am. so my mum happily said lets stay for hospital lunch (don't ask me what gave her the idea! like ??!! who wants to eat hospital food man) but it wasnt too bad i guess. i koped her food and it was like grilled sirloin steak with some funny mash potato sauce-esque type of sauce. and french beans with jacket potato. plus chicken consomme and cubed honey dew. i make hospital food sound heavenly dont i? haha.

2 ageist insults came by this way today...

1) this prc nurse tried to guess my age. "er.. shi san sui ah?" then i showed her my car keys and my mum said "shi ba sui cai neng kai che." wahhaha.

2) at the concierge of the hospital (make it sound like some hotel like that), the 'bell boy' came and asked:" er are you all waiting for taxi?" then my mum said "no, she's driving." then he had that horrified/mortified look on his face when he said "wah."

sweat sweat. just came back from the gym, and had a glass of milk immediately after the exercise... feels good man. i sound like im pumping protein in me, haha :)

the bro left for hostel today.. and guess what! he's rooming with his sec school friend, whom i had a crush on when i was in sec sch! haha. maybe i'll get to see him when (if) i go down to ntu. maybe he's ugly now. haha.

the mom looked so tired and in pain just now...another 6 wks leh! she cannot walk!! sigh i hope she recovers soon.

after blogging this and chatting for awhile longer think i'll bathe and then settle down in the bro's bed to watch some desperate housewives. yeahhhhhhhhhh. thats the life.

from 1 hospital to another..

Haha. from visiting alex at changi hosp to visiting my own mum at east shore hosp! swayest thing happened today. my bro was moving into hostel and my mum was just sitting there when he knocked against some bench and the whole thing fell on my mum's toe. OUCH. so she fractured her toe and needs surgery + has to be warded for 1 night. and cant walk/work for 6 weeks. 6 frikin weeks!! i think when the accident happened my brother probably got SO totally screamed at, i think he died.

think im quite sadistic i kept laughing at my mummy, haha she's just very sway lah :P but as mr. brightside would say: i get to use the car for 6 weeks!!!

Anyways that aside. i was called down frm tuition for this emergency so that i can drive the car home. yap.

Mrs Brightside at 4:37 pm (0) comments


he didnt call, and i miss him anyways. but he needs his rest.
And he walks with me
And he talks with me
And he tells me
I am his own
And the joy we shared
As we tarried there
None other has ever known.

He speaks and the sound of his voice
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing
And the melody
That he gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.

Sleepy at 2am ------>

Yes i just got home. tired sia. i think i havent had a gd rest since camp, and tmr morning i need to wake up at 7am some more! pengz.
Went out for dinner/supper at usual haunt with shiwei, and did our fair share of whining to each other.. haha. i think with him its like, same stories, different people. sigh. but relax bro i'm sure it'll all work out cos GOD HAS A PLAN FOR ALL OF US

Then i happily drove to east coast macs for a spin and bought my first drive thru!! so fun!!! i bought 1 ice cream cone. ahahahah. damn fun lah really when the microphone/speakers buzz to life and go "hi how can i help you!" it's so exciting really. haha. then managed to park my car successfully (yay!) and we headed to a breakwater.. as i said: wrong company lah. whole park full of couples down there ji lang man. totally wrong company lor. but the sea was nice and peaceful, i really like looking at the ships at sea i think the lights are very pretty and tempting, somehow.

Back to 85 for more food this time with xavier, the gf and chethan. talk cock a bit, then i was falling asleep there cos it's really way past my bed time. so good night.

and you called even though it hurts! :) thank you dear!

sweet cravings

I'M BACK!! after a 5 day hiatus cos of the 3d2n camp CIRCLE at smu.ok wait it wasnt AT smu. it was at cdans/chinese gardens, the former being an ulufied adventure campsite in bukit batok right next to bbdc. ok back to the topic. i've had sweet cravings ever since i broke camp!

first was cheonging tim tam and lemon biscuits, courtesy of yingtee, outside Cheers mart at chinese garden mrt station while waiting for that LAO POK taxi driver to come that never came. he cant even differentiate betweeen chinese garden mrt and lakeside mrt lah! then after that i went to visit alex with a macho flower, haha i think he was quite shocked to see me. stayed there till around ten, and i left with a smile on my face :) i duno it was just so nice to see him again after the torturous camp. it makes me smile to see him trying to smile and see him rolling his eyes, just like the alex i know!

Then i trooped off to take bus 9 which took so damn long to come.. after sitting on the bus for so long i had this sudden desire to get off at simpang and i did! went to drink good old milo dinosaur - the best sugar fix ever! - and eat kosong prata with sugar. yum yum. then mummy came and i drove her home. and now im sitting in front of the comp eating meiji's mango yoghurt! yup guys, meiji yoghurt got new flavour and remember you heard it from me first! the mango rocks! damn mangoy, and there are PLENTY of bite sized chewy mango bits in the yoghurt. mmmmmm. bao u will love this.

Anyway camp was, sad to say, BORING. spelt with caps BBBBBB. cos after every activity we were forced to reflect! think about the lessons learnt during the activity! what were your feelings! and crap like that. i mean, i know that this is a leadership and teambuilding camp but i feel the activities r very... sec school. a been there done that kinda thing lah. and theres no need to push it such that we reflect every single thing we do! it takes away the fun element totally!

Main highlights of the camp include:
1) getting my bathroom privacy invaded when this girl totally went to open the door of the portashower while i was bathing - stark naked! like thanks! HELLO! DIDNT YOU SEE THE SLIPPERS OUTSIDE THE DOOR!! like wtf totally. if i see her....... i'm SO gonna kill her. grrrr. u know who u are! u cant hide.

2) reaching the endpoint tyre when climbing the structure in the "high elements" segment of activities! i was the only girl to reach although my DEAR facilitator happily LAUGHED at me (while i was up there on the structure!!) cos i couldnt reach the tyre cos it was too high! basket lor.

3) building a raft and paddling it across the muddy chinese garden river. i was practically wading in mud. seriously. now my toenails are black. and i threw away the pair of shoes i wore for that.

4) i guess 4 would be getting carried almost everyday of the camp by guys. heh heh. two sub points about this - i dont really like sitting on a guy's shoulder. feels weird n unstable. 2: i like sitting on two guys' interlocked arms. i think its super stable and feels like a human sedan, heh heh thanks niu nai tuan guys!!! :)

And that's about it. i think my group is super enthu. really onz and like damn hiong. usually ppl chao geng to get an excuse to zao from camp, my camp mates arh, injured liao all still insist on staying on in the camp or even playing the games la! chaoji wu di SUPER ONZ!!!think we were overall tops lah so well done guys keep up the good work, it was enjoyable to sit back and watch the more enthu ppl take charge :D

10 things NOT to lose sleep over

1)When you'll ever find a boyfriend or get married.
2)Your weight. (I am SO guilty of this! siqing also. and probably half the girls out there)
3)The argument you had with mum this morning. (heh NEVER cos i dont argue with my mum! i do what she tells me to! really!)
4)Whether he'll call. (shit i am so guilty of this one.)
5)How good your ex and his new girlfriend look together. (to ginny chua: recall the sec3 days! imagine how i felt.)
6)Whether he'll ask you out on a second date.
7)How to get back at a colleague who's giving you a hard time. (oops i did this too, at eu yan sang jan/feb 2005)
8)Not having more money.
9)The fact that you haven't worked out all week.
10)The mess in your kitchen. Housework can wait. (YES totally housework should wait! I must show my mum this. Then she will understand why my bedroom looks like the storeroom. No wait. i think our storeroom is neater than the room, haha.)

I cut my hair! Just decided to walk into any salon at Eastpoint after tuition today. I realise that I don't have a fixed hairdresser - I just salon hop all the time. Places i've done my hair before include:
1) pointers@far east and roxy square
2) Le Salon@taka for my prom hair do
3) Supercuts@tampines, after Prom night 2002
4) Some Far East Salon on the top floor - hairstylist used to work at Ginrich.
5) And now of course, Jantzen at East Point!

I got cheated cos the "Promotion! Hot Offer!" said that a haircut would be $20. but for my length of hair it was $28. anyway i think it looks okay. i got a fringe! here take a look:

And also: guess what came in the mail yesterday!!

Tadaa. MY FIRST VISA!! A sign i'm sure, for many other good things to come. :D

Hong Kong... [Day 3]

On the bus to Ocean Park! which was, i think, not really worth the ticket price of sgd50 bucks. oh well. i guess it's worth seeing ocean park in HK before disneyland opens and it's totally overshadowed.

In the ferris wheel

The dragon rollercoaster.

Peak Tram up the hill to see the sun setting atop of the peak, as well as the night view of hong kong city's skyline. beautiful i tell you. too bad the camera doesnt work as good at night, either that or my hand shakes too much and the light pollution aint too favourable to take nice clear shots. but wow. it's really pretty at night.

Madame Tussaud's! I know its not the REAL paris version but still, good enough. dont ask me what i'm doing to madonna, hahahah

"i almost got drunk at school at 14
Where I almost made out with the homecoming queen
Who almost went on to be Miss Texas
But lost to a slut with much bigger breastes
I almost dropped out to move to L.A.
Where I was almost famous for almost a day

And I almost had you
But I guess that doesn't cut it
Almost loved
I almost wished you woulda loved me too

I almost held up a grocery store
Where I almost did 5 years and then 7 more
Cuz I almost got popped for a fight with a thug
Cuz he almost made off with a buncha the drugs
That I almost got hooked on cuz you ran away
And I wish I woulda had the nerve to ask you to stay

And I almost had you
But I guess that doesn't cut it
almost had you
And I didn't even know it

You kept me guessin'
And now I'm destined
To spend my time missin' you
I almost wish you woulda loved me too

Here I go thinkin' about all the things I could have done
I'm gonna need a forklift cuz all the baggage weighs a ton (baggage weighs a ton)
I know we had our problems, I can't remember one.

I almost forgot to say something else
And if I can't fit it in I'll keep it all to myself
I almost wrote a song about you today
But I tore it all up and then I threw it away

And I almost had you
But I guess that doesn't cut it
almost had you
And I didn't even know it

You kept me guessin'
And now I'm destined
To spend my time missin' you
I almost had you
almost had you
almost had you

I almost wished you woulda loved me too
wished you woulda loved me too

Nice song :) the verses are a little cock at the start but i totally love the chorus. so nice!

i've been rather frivolous, happily posting about my hk trip when much tragedy is going on in the world. Okay then. shall observe a one day silence on the blog.

Hong Kong continued...[Day 2]

Breakfast was 10 yuan da da wan! ten bucks hkd for a bowl of wanton mee. and one bowl of beef balls. okay lah.

Lunch at Lei Yun Mun. SUPER bei pian lor. 600hkd = 150 sgd for 3 plates of seafood. like. erps. we are totally suaku tourists waiting to be conned. thinking about it gets me sad and pissed cos i was flat broke, SIGH.

Hong Kong Island as viewed from the opposite side of Victoria Bay. Chio hor! typical Bank of China view.. i love it! it's so postcard!! I like to think of Central as the CBD of Hong Kong, which is so true and so much more. Bank of China looks beautiful at night, even though it has been overshadowed by taller and more majestic buildings but i still think it is THE landmark of HK and it is just synonymous to Hong Kong and symbolizes everything that the Pearl of the Orient stands for.

Shopping and so much more. in that yellow plastic bag was my new gola bag! woohoo! bought earlier in the day at one of the warehouses in kwun tong.

Chou dou fu totally stinks man. YUCKS BIG TIME. really smells like shit. doesnt taste fantastic either.

Some pictures to remember hong kong by... [Day 1]

Hong Kong International Airport A roof shot. nice hor :)

SALE!!! Esprit warehouse sale at tung chung. best shopping experience cos i spent like 200 sgd there :P and it was only the first day in hong kong. and i was left with a measly 300sgd for the remaining 4 days, erps :/ and we came straight from the airport, but the service was v good let us park our luggage in the counter!

Roast baby pigeons(behind) and xiao long bao(front) First meal in HK at Eastern Gate Seafood Restaurant. Expensive, but we were well rested and energized after that cos we shopped so much at Esprit!

Temple street Went night market exploring on the first night - covered Temple street and Ladies Street. Plenty of el cheapo stuff but bargaining is a must. Especially when the shopkeepers like to hold your hand. um.

Xu Liu Shan Only ate this once but it is enough! HEAVEN! so shiok better than my lousy xls experience in singapore cos the one in singapore had sour mangoes :/

Mrs Brightside at 11:09 am (0) comments


shagged. just got home after lugging my 24kg luggage around. i really wanna club. somebody help me. shall upload photos and blog more like tomorrow or something.

missing hk food. ate freaking A LOT. now come back must try to lose weight so that i can fit into the clothes i bought at esprit, zara and mango. yes i know all these stores can be found in sg but i couldnt resist it was slightly cheaper there:P i hope everyone likes what i got for them. oh and i bought a gola bag! nice. and an esprit bag. and countless esprit tops/bottoms cos they have warehouse sales there 24/7. 2 zara tops. 1 mango top. or is it 2? i can't remember. and then i was broke :/ oh welll....

met sallie there! omg f*cking cool sia... wah she was really nice n friendly and like we could click as well as we could over email! :) so happy. when we were meeting her machiam meeting irc friend like that, ask her what colour shirt she wearing and stuff like that.. haha. cool.

muacks to siqing trypx wannie (aka candy apple and bimbo/barbie!) haha.

Some last words..

Okay this will probably be the last post. I just pigged out on hokkien mee sadly :( Thanks to kiatty kiat for the konica minolta pro-some 4.0 mega pixel camera!! :) and also to yiren for teaching me how to use it. I will come back with pretty pictures! yayyy!! and i will look like a tourist with the camera strapped around me neck haha i love looking like one and doing touristy stuff. it doesnt get better than that.

Recounting yesterday's series of events...
(1) Wake up early and head to CDC Ubi to collect the remaining amount in my store value. $76.80 richer now :) (sorry i'm not like pinkshoe, i can't blog about jaw-droppingly huge amounts)

(2) Went to open my uob campus account! i officially have a visa debit card as well as a cheque book now!!! whee heee. i almost wrote a check for ten dollars to bao, for my fbts :P

(3) Met bao and ser and ser's josh in orchard and we went to toast, quaint little bready place in taka (near sushi tei that side) for some (expensive) good food! i ate roast beef wrap. i think bao's salmon toast looked good! *drool* but i forgot to ask her for some, dang.

(4) Head to Island Creamery at Serene Centre (without ser though, hahaha:P) with bao and ate the ice cream there, wah its really good and cheap! wu chao suo zhi! we shared 3 scoops of teh tarik, reverso and burnt caramel <--- super nice sia this one! damn sweet i like i like. Then bao's josh came and i kopped his kahlua latte. not bad lah.

(5) Go for tuition! omg friggin stuck on the bus for like 1.5 hours my butt ACHED like hell after that! stupid traffic jam along eunos link/ubi! then go for liu qiong's tuition late. but it's okay. haha. i will make it up some other time.

(6) went home, get car, drive alex to arab street and then get effing lost around the area cos of so many dead ends/one way streets. ended up parking next to lai fuo shi yi yuan and walking to ambrosia to meet bao and josh again. Ate some hummus with bread which was really not bad and i think worth it for 5 bucks. according to bao hummus is mashed chick peas. i dun even know what are chick peas!

Okay anyway after the food was the sheesha. my gosh. first time got so much smoke coming out of my mouth. i quote: "machiam dragon in haw par villa!" hahahaha. ordered 2, one double apple and the other was tobacco. the double apple one super sweet, after a few puffs the sweetness got to me and i started coughing. throat super itchy like that. then like got a lot of phlegm. i guess these experiences should be documented under "thrills of a virgin smoker" hahah. Me and bao checked it out apparently sheesha is equivalent to 18 cigs. like oops! but it's okay, not addictive at all. the guys were alright but think me and bao were A BIT seh. but only slightly slightly lah. sit around chat chat talk cock, the ambience there was really nice and dark and cosy i think.

(7) After sending everyone home went to pick up shiwei and xavier and gerald from 85, cos i promised bro i would bring him for a spin since he was so messed up and i was worried for him. it was SO funny to have 3 guys in the car! hahaah especially when they turned up the radio real loud on Afroman's Because I Got High and started singing to it, ahahahaha super cute sia. i almost couldnt concentrate on my driving.

Drove to east coast cos i was hungry but end up go there only drink Kokosnuss. Did not fill my tum at all, after that still got stomach ache some more :/ I think i like xavier better than i like gerald. after knowing what gerald does, i think he got that "come all i want to do is have a good fuck" face, haha. sorry dude. xavier at least friendlier and more approachable.

Sent them back to 85 after a rather bumpy ride from east coast cos i was going way too fast and i couldnt see the humps and stripes and the guys behind were having a terrible roller coaster ride, hahahah :P they want thrills, i give them thrills lor.

Oh. this one really hits the spot with regards to last night's events. I KENA SUMMON!! FOR PARKING!! put a 1 hour coupon when i was there for like, 3. ughh. will die if mummy finds out.

My name is Superwoman.

In 2 hours, i managed to iron all the clothes i needed (there were a lot, trust me) and pack them ALL into my luggage! now my hong kong luggage is ready already!! :) Packing for a 5 day trip in 1.5 hours. wow. sometimes i amuse even myself. HAHA. and i also managed to head down to the cubes to pick up my photocard license and also blog about it! I also sewed up my torn bag and applied for travel insurance online and completed a DCA form for SMU to be submitted soon. am i efficient or what. okay enough of blowing my own trumpet. tuition at 1400hours followed by chorale at 1600 hours and then home to tie up the loose ends.

my luggage is barely 1/4 full lah. i assume i'll be coming home with a whole truckload of goodies.
