Today is my grandma's bday!
The whole extended family except 1 group went to Hotel Mirama (or something), the one near Zouk for dinner. My cousins are all growing up cute and pretty, here's just 2 photos out of the many many

This is eden, or den-den. She's turning 3, and very very playful. But she's so cute!

Family photo with grandma... too bad bruder is in OZland

Some photos taken in school on Friday...

When you put the photos together they actually look like motion jpeg. So amusing. :)

esplanade is a beautiful place...
and i think it will be where i'd be hanging out quite often from now on. went there just now, but it's a little too crowded to be able to feel the place.

i remember looking at the boards with artist impressions of the esplanade at the busstop at esplanade itself when i was in jc. and i asked somebody whether he/she will watch me if i get to perform at the concert hall. and performing at the concert hall is one of my greatest wishes then, but coming to smu of cos disrupted that dream.

why? cos smu got no band ma. but of cos it offered me more in other senses.

kinda miss those days... to think of it, i never knew i could commit to something that... committedly. and by that i mean attending band practices faithfully every wednesday and saturday for 2 whole years. and secondary school too. that makes 6 years. there went my social life. or maybe not, since i'm all day long skipping school in jc and is in town on most weekdays.

the greatest fulfillment of them all is to be able to perform in a 1200 seater auditorium with almost full house, and having friends out that supporting you, cheering you on even if they are not the band kinda person, but is just there for you. such a good feeling that is.

sigh. the good ol' days.

suddenly feeling a twinge of emotions in me, spinning 360 degrees like a washing machine, but there isn't much that i can pen down, or say type down in this case. i feel like going out for a breather, but then i don't think dad will allow me to drive. especially i duno where i am going, and it's like 12 mn.

and i can't help with that sickening feeling. and i just feel like eating ice cream. weird eh?

i want to break free.

In class today Austin (the prof) was so happening. He allowed us to decide what topic to be tested on, and the kind of question to be asked.

Whether we want those plain ol' vanilla flavor questions, where you mug mug mug and regurgitate regurgitate (think: NTU! lol) and you pass, or you want those exotic rum and raisin with cookies and cream kind of question, where you can poke fun at the Singapore's media having ONLY 1 official newspaper and stuff like that.

Of course, I raise my hand up high to exotic. It was especially so when I heard Austin saying

"exotics are for people who study very little but still do very well"

and my face lit up. Now THAT'S my kinda questions!

The ratio was about 15 vanillas : 25 exotics.

Strangely, the foreign exchange guy from Copehegen (think: Calsberg) raise his hand to boring ol' vanilla. I thought ang mohs would want those kind of question. But I was wrong.

In the library now and almost done with my BGS research term paper, so I think. So many deadlines at the same time. So suay ah.... Now going to start my Int'd Econs research.. *grinds teeth*. That's the aim of today. Tommorrow will be Micro Econs day, plus more IE.

Thank God to make it up for my whole day of library staying, mummy and papa are coming over to bring me to Orchid Inn Copthrone Hotel for a happy ala carte buffet! *slurps* Okay I will go gym too!

Managed to catch a free flick yesterday evening cos there is this guy who already bought his ticket, and then found 3 tickets on the floor, and so he decided to give it to us. So heng. :)...
Watched SO CLOSE. It's a pretty okay thing to watch since it's free, otherwise it's not a show I'd spend money on. It's those girls kick ass charlie's angel kinda show...
Zhao Wei is really not fat... but then it's kinda miserable to try to look thin beside the other 2 co stars, that are like - totally fat free. Hiaks.. and a spoiler here - Zhao Wei's a lesbian!

Dreamt of some kick ass dream that must be as a result of the movie. Can't quite remember the dream now, but I think it's kind of spastic one...

Whatever lar. :D

Kinda miss my camera... ZHIPING!!!

Anyway check out my other half's site.

I'm dying in this class. And I can choose to drop it. Dropping it means I will get a W in my report in the end, but if I don't drop I may risk a F cos I'm like really dying.

It's week 6 now. Should I give up? Or should I perservere? I have till week 7 to decide.

Pros: Shaun asks me how bad can a module get if you really study, and he offered to teach me and answer my questions to his best abilities. It kinda sound stupid to drop when you have a near-genius to assist you, but then again I don't know whether I should take this risk.

And it's not like my stats module, which my prof sux. This prof is nice, enthusiastic and really cute (not the handsome cute but the cute nerd cute), the way he talks and laugh at himself kinda thing. Those awww nice man kind.

Cons: failure = F = bad G.P.A. And from the way I understand his class it is not THAT impossible to fail... cos I really dun get it!

Worst of all, the reason why I am thinking so hard is because it is not a compulsory module, just a stepping stone to my double major.

How? Please give me your 2 cents. Or 3, if you wish to.

btw the haze is real bad, i can smell it
If you read the Lianhe Zaobao there is a small article on the bad bad point of being a hubber.
Cos when you are a hubber you use a lot a lot of handphone talktime.
People who talk on the handphone frequently has 30% chance higher to get tumour.
And I am one guilty party.

It's time to stop hubbing (so much)

Anyway I was watching Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, and though it was the 2nd time already, still think it is quite good. It's one of those shows that ang mohs will be mesmerized by, but I'm just.... cool. It's good, but not good enough to get all the oscars.

Anyway why did Zhang Ziyi decide to jump down in the end ah? I was thinking? Is she guilty?

Wanted to go somewhere to carry latern, but in the end I was at home. Grandma came to eat dinner and then continued to stone. Never do work never go out. Sian...

Today also...

Okay. A Friday night is no big deal. Stay home. So what? Been doing that for a while. What's life anyway? But fuck, I suddenly thought of like... L.I.F.E of a typical undergraduate. Isn't it about staying back in school till wee wee hours because you are organising some camp or some party? Or else maybe at least trying to mug? An occassion drink at a bar maybe? And hanging in town with your friends to catch a show?

I seem to be growing old. I did ALL of that last year. I stayed back in school to do work and to play, I went town everyday, almost. I went to sunset bay almost every saturday, and clubs twice a month.

But nowadays, I don't. So don't my friends. Why ah?

Another bloT of GhEE (8:39 PM) :
haven't been going to town for a while

Fu Sheng (8:42 PM) :
wow thats quite unbelievable la
hearing from you...

That was one of my town kakis, who is now serving the nation will all pride and glory *lol*

Don't think our lives changed so much because of him also. Anyway, although we never go town and stuff, we don't quite study a lot either. So what have we been doing?

Stealing/ plotting to steal daddy's car out to drive.

That's all I can think of.


WHY so cham Ping?

After much hesitation (and a bit of tears) I decided to give up on my collection of coke cans. They are just too troublesome to keep. All the dust that accumulates, and it's heavy to move around the room. I still like them a lot though. :`( But I've decided to stay true to just the glass bottles sorts. Well they have less variety but oh well nevermind. :D

Anyway, if you got any friends who collect coke and want to buy or you want to buy them from your friends, do mail me (I dunno how to do the hyperlink lar!) okay? I've got some pictures but you want then i send to you lar. Or else a can for a bottle also can.

BTW I've got like 150 cans from all around the world. Korea, Japan, Canada, Middle east, China, US, UK, SG, OZ, Malaysia, Thailand, France. It's almost a you name it I have it thing. kakakaka

Today was quite a happy day I think? Had Microeconomics lesson and the teacher was so so so so nice. He is those Mr Nice guy kinda man, where he is so so so so so sweet to us and so worried that we cannot understand him, and the subject. Which we really don't lar. Sent him an email and spoke as though we were on the werge of dropping his modules already. Still a little like that, but really more like staying on cos i think somehow if we perservere we can do it one. It simply takes a lot more effort. It just gets on my nerve because it is not a compulsory module but I chose to do it cos I wanted to double major. Hope I won't live to regret my decision.

Miss Lee Ping took Daddy's car out.

1st place we went was fifth avenue's nice ice cream place. After a satisfying small serving of ice cream (Peanut butter & pink grapefruit & belgium chocolate) we went across the road to eat nasi briyani. For more info you can just click here lar.

r that we decided to pick Miss Zhiping up from Nanyang Technological University Canteen B Wee ??? ??? Library (where the *** is that?) lol... I also dunno. And she, also not very useful, never quite explain where it is.

"It's at canteen B lor..."

As non-NTU ethusiast we of course would not know/ can't be bothered actually to know where is canteen B. Thank God for Mr Leonard he told us exactly the way there, except that we turned like about one whole big round. Overall me and Miss Ping have been awarded the know-NTU-campus-route-very-well-gold award. Went around NTU and laughed at all the roadnames of the school. It's so so so amusing to find out the creativity of the roadnames.

Nanyang Drive
Nanyang Crescent
Nanyang Way
Nanyang Road
Nanyang View

I was just thinking as NTU expands further (saw some construction going on) it'll probably put their creative juices to a huge test for road naming. As if it helps, I came up with some brilliant names.

Jalan Nanyang
Lorong Nanyang
Nanyang Street
Jalan Labu Nanyang
Nanyang jie
Nanyang lu
Nanyang Centre
Nanyang Central
Nanyang North/ South/ East/ West
Nanyang Town
Nanyang Side

Anyway amazing Ping manage to park her car at home safe and sound. So proud of her. Her driving isn't as bad as most people think. Really.


Thanx for the ride ah, but please don't drive tmr.

I really tried reading the notes. But I still cannot figure out what is going on.

Think I will fail my microecons. So difficult, all the equations are killing me.

Thursday, September 12, 2002


what were you thinking? :P

I'm talking about all my workload. BIG SIGH. It's the 4th week and in fact coming to an end, and nothing is done about my projects. And so many are due so soon. Yucks procrastinating again. Hate it.

And I'm going to have my marketing test in about 2 hours time. Chapters 1,2,3,5,7 and I am on chap 5 already. Taking a break, having a kit kat. Don't quite know how to mug, and how marketing quizzes are like. If need to memorise then happy new year to me, cos all I did was to read up.

Marketing - quiz later, presentation in 7th week for mini project, big project thereafter.
International Economics - presentation in 7th week, test just over.
intermediate Microeconomics - assignment due on Monday and I dun understand a single shit.
BGS - small presentation tommorrow haven't prepare mini project not started big project haven't think of title individual term paper not started at all, due in 7th week.
Ethics - always sleep in class.

wah biang S-T-R-E-S-S

and dunno which idiot said

"oh so you decided to go smu because you wanna go through uni life being very relax right? i mean, 15 hours of school per week only. part time course ah"


Just a question for you guys. If there is a teeshirt website featuring teeshirts of the likes of Bugis Village and other small tee shirt designer's tee, all available at the click of your mouse, do you think you will ever buy online?

So exciting...

Yesterday I drove my daddy to the airport with Cindy, cos Poor Miss Cindy's laptop died on her, and she had to hand up something important, so she flew to my house at 11+pm. So cham. She have to reconfigure her harddisk and according to Larry, the CIT is really kinda kok up one... Apparently they can help her to backup her files but they just say

err, we do not provide this kind of service to the students."

At the expense of important assignments? Must complain to the school soon.

Anyway ya. I drove to school. :D

Some silly test...

What is my spectrum?

I am red: My main color is red. This means I am goal oriented. Success is important to me. Achievment is the marker of a great life.

What is my spectrum?

My Romance Meter

Optimist 50%
50% Cynic
Close 59%
41% Distant
Long Term 43%
57% Brief
What does my romance meter read?

Just uploaded photos onto my computer so I might as well post some photos up.

Just to let you guys catch a glimpse of what I bought, here's my 2 teeshirts and a trackpants

and this is me and Cindy. Look at the flora flowing skirt I had on. lol.. bought it some time back, nowhere to wear, decided to wear to school, forgot going adidas sale, wore that for the sale.

So inappropriate. lol


We were studying very hard in school yesterday.

That's my cosy mugging corner

A mat to lie on when we are tired, complete with our little pillow & I-LOVE-SMU bar

This is econs... sobs. So difficult

Ping on our tatami mat trying to study Int'd econs, I think.

Saturday, September 07, 2002


Zhi Ping insisted that this looks like me and her. Look at the first photo to your right hand side.

Look like meh?

This is so COOL... danny created this.

(Sing to I will Survive)
At first I was afraid
Now I'm petrified
That I can't keep my GPA
of two point five
I spent all those stupid nights
I was chillin way too long
And that was wrong
But now I know I must be strong

And now they're back
They are in my face
I've got three finals and two papers
to be done in just five days!
I should never have gone out
And I should never have partied
'Cause now all this work I have
It's all piling up on me!

And I must go
to the library
To do research on those papers
And study harder than before
It's hell, I'll tell you that
and you know it's not a lie
But I can't crumble
I can't lay down and die

Oh no not I!
I will survive
If I keep a two point 0
At least I'll be alive!
I've got five more days to live
and I think my brain will give
But I'll survive
I will survive
I'll survive---!!!

Hopefully... I will be smarter lar.

but not quite lah

Life is so not fair. Some people have to go through so much in life while others have everything under the sun provided for for them. So sad. I know if you guys were to comment, you will just say

"what to do, life is lidat one mar".

True, lah.

But why must it be so? Why must some people have to find means to get a roof over their head, and others are just not happy enough with their hi-fi set and buy a new one.

Anyway, I am feeling miserable over project too. I hate my group. They are the most miserable and lazy bums I've ever met. And they are snobbish, over what I also dunno. There isn't anything for them to be proud of, except their differences in... okay I better not start.Fucking Stupid idiots.

Anyway, sorry for the lack of updates. WOMAD photos coming up soon.
