To a wonderful melody.

You may feel that all's lost, nothing's left
Nowhere to run, nowhere to go
You may want to hide from the world


Nothing has changed
Nothing is dark, nothing is grey
If you are brave.

To be brave when your heart is faint
To behave bravely
In times of such

Hand in hand, with me.
And she, and he.
We're all here for you.

Conclusion? Orlando Bloom looks great! Only in LOTR.

He really, really looks like shit in real life. Almost Justin Timberlakish. Sometimes even Beckish.

Don't believe? See for yourself:

Alamak look at his hair

Happy Boxing Day. Xmas was a simple affair in front of the goggle box with my dar. Watched LOTR1 on VCD to sorta recap to prepare for the LOTR3, have yet to watch 2 again as well. Thereafter caught Waterboys on Channel 8. Kinda miss those days when I was a kid and had real Xmas parties with a Xmas tree and with stuff turkey and honey baked ham. Not forgetting lotsa presents. Shall make it a point to have such celebrations with my kids next time.

Was a pretty eventful week @ Msia. Too lazy to type in detail, hiccups there were, laughters there were, overall a rather pleasant trip. First time on Msia trip with dar, with more to come. 6 was a hassle to travel at times, but we managed rather alright. Will never forget the Amazing Race wannabe at the last day when we ran for our lives to catch the bus back to SG. Hiaks.

Went for a band concert today, performing in one tommorrow. So last minute, wonder if we'd play as badly as the alumni did in today's concert. They were pretty horrible, with too many upper and middle brass, so little woodwinds and not enough lower brass to support the tenish trumpet and eightish horns. Imbalance and out of tune. Sigh. But it doesn't matter, I wasn't there for the music. I was there as a true friend, supporting her to support her darling.

And I bought some retro looking TOPSHOP top and a sweetish toga from MANGO. Shopping is a girl's best friend!

Chinatown. People's Park

Been working there for the past few days. Purposely transferred over to be with Rose (poor Ping is all alone in Heeren). Thought it will be as Rose says a place where "Birds don't lay eggs", it was true, we are busy probably like 1/3 of the time or less, but it turned out to be remotely fun. For one, we had great company and great IC, so we did stupid things like writing with our left hand the names of each other, played the 1++1= game on the calculator (you know, those press very hard very fast and see who win kind), and ate like crazy. We are just a building from the famous wet market which serves delicious historical food, all the stores are like opened for at least 20 years already kind. So we have breakfast at 11, lunch at 3 and dinner at 8 and in between, lots and lots of tibits from the tibits store next door, like dried mango, dried cuttlefish, chocolate, candies, hello panda and lots more. Made friends with the store owners and also wrote the work order wrongly, when I sold the 288 phone, I thought it was 98. Luckily the nice woman came back and paid the difference, else can you imagine paying the 190 deficit? All the 3 days work will just simply go down the drain. PHEW.

In general? It was quite fun working there, though there are really much senior citizens and too many PRCs and supposedly totally unhappening, this is one place I worked and was quite happy. Hiaks.

Oh and I'm falling sick. Please please let me recover before I leave for Malaysia, truly Asia on Wednesday.

I just have to say this. Being bored (but quite happy nuahing at home), I was looking through friendster and all again, and saw a testimonial from one good friend of mine to another of mine, who was my greatest JC mates ever, who "dutifully collected watever notes there were for u and hui (whenever we skipped school which was most of the time) ...and helpfully coverning up for ur dyed hair back den."

"issit it ironic that now, u can have watever colour hair u want (who the hell will care), but u choose to have BLACK instead!! "

Hahahaha! I LOVE YOU TUT!
Today is quite a happy day. Work was slack, dar came and visit me @ work though it was just a glimpse and a wave but very heart warming. :)

Clubbing was fun too. I christian it Hubber Night. Like 10 hubber girls went to Black and the atmosphere wasn't great, people around sucked but the company was fantastic hence we (at least me) enjoyed myself pretty much. Without even needing to get high or drink a lot.

It's pretty cool how a group of girls can come together from working and become really quite-not-bad friends who can club and have crazy fun with. By crazy I mean doing indianish dance and anymore rubbish you can think of. As rosiemary says, we will always say things like, "Erm, I'd prefer to work with P and H/ P and R/ H and R", but now, at least it's not so bad if we have to be scattered all over. There are still 6,7,8 others we know and love to work with. I love the way we ended the night with hugs, even though some may not have worked with the others before, or worked but din quite talk, but yeah, it's well, just a happy feeling.

Plus no work tommorrow! And I got 3 Bs for my results. And my family are going to Marina South for steamboat!

But I just read one of my angel's blog and realised he had a bad day. No there is no need to tell everyone what happened. But well, that makes me feel sad.

Monday, December 01, 2003

You know all those time machines, and cheena forget-everything wine that you're suppose to drink before you reincarnate. Isn't it scary? I mean, to forget everything that has happened in your whole life, all the people you love and miss your whole life.

And tell me, how often do you wish to turn back time to undo what you've done, because you are so full of regrets.

And if there really is such, will you go for it?
A tiresome chore to move on...

Which is so human. No matter how hard you try, how deep you hide, if you fundamentally hadn't move on, it will show. Like if you like to wear your granny panties out, no matter how hard you try, fold, pull, wear a big tee, it still peeks out of the W:27 L:32 lowrisejeans. here and there. Thankfully only some will catch it. Some wun happen to see it when it happens.

And I saw. But it doesn't mean you should stop. They are comfortable to wear, even though not exactly the nicest in looks. You may think twice, and ask, should I still wear it? I mean, I love it still. I will say it is probably a better idea if you keep it at home, in the privacy of your home, wear it to sleep. And you'd say I am already doing so, it is just sometimes, which I just really, really want to wear it.

But whenever you do so, I'd be there for you.

Yeah, exams are over. Feelings? Not that much. Maybe because I din mug that hard. But quite glad to get a month's worth of no brainer. Next sem though, die.

Anyway, latest motivation in life - cycle home from NTU. With my darlings of course. Anyone else interested may join too.

Wednesday, November 26, 2003

tell me why why why ever since the exams period i start feeling so sleepy i can sleep for hours and hours and hours it is really quite amazing how books can make one this sleepy and make one have such great wishes to head downstairs into the kitchen and look into the fridge for something to eat even if food just came an hour ago or switch on the computer to check mail when there could not be anything that important which requires immediate actions tell me why why why does the television programme suddenly all look so appealing when i don't watch tv tell me why why why i suddenly have so many things which i seem to need and want to do but yet not able to do because of the darn exam and tell me why why why i am not studying and updating this blog as if it is the most important task in this world tell me why why why my exams is tommorrow and i am still online.


anyway ping has not been studying and went all about singapore to buy a pair of reef slippers as if it is the most important thing she can ahieve i guess since she thinks she won't do that well already might as well achieve something in life and in the end she manage to buy up the last pair of reef slippers in the color and size she wants in singapore and proud of it she is and so am i for you all the glory and pride bleems can you see it just don't sit beside me tommorrow :D

Something I really really want to do.

Wanna go too?

Notice that he is carrying whole skin of a real person, probably his own.

Anatomy has always been my interest, though not exactly the bravest soul on Earth, I'm one of those who wouldn't cringe that dissection but be truly amazed by it during Secondary School.

At least this is something to look forward to after exams. But then again, who wants to go with me?

Maybe, just maybe, some of my friends may change their minds about puffing after seeing this blacken lungs in real life.

A potential ego post to some, but indeed truly entertaining

Triggered off by what someone said - I am full of surprises. And why? That's because I keep changing my hair color, till a point where it is really no surprise to see something different everytime. And really different.

And guess what, I have to embarrassingly agree.

Just for fun, this is a tribute to the many hair colors I have done.

The timeline of my hair, as far as I could remember.

I obviously was borned with black hair. During JC, it was those mahagony brown days, hence not that worth posting.

When I was about to become a freshie, during convo (hence the initiation period, here was my hair. Pretty ugly, really, but what to do.

Then I became a freshman official, and my hair was bleached orange streaks by a friend, as below.

When I then became friends with Ping and developed the friendship, we soon realised our fetish for hair colors and hence went to get ash blonde hair with ash streaks.

Ping, decided to be a packet of french fries.

And alas, see my hair condition after the few bleaches.

So after a while we decided that being too blonde was too loud. (Seriously it's 2 blondes we are talking about, friends say they can never miss us in the crowd, ZP even mumbled AH LIAN under her breathe when she was walking towards us not knowing it was her friends she was mumbling about). Hence, blue black hair.

It faded off within weeks and I was back to my blondie status. Undeterred, I tried to change. Now to deep red with orange and red streaks. Was, really quite red.

Reds don't last, I realised. It faded to some brownish blonde color (AGAIN!) So to touch up the roots, I simply bought off drugstore shelves, some blonde or brown or whatever color dye.

Around that time, dear ZP was kinda also affected by this hair coloring frenzy, just as we were about to warn her about the mee sua sydrome, she bleached her whole head too. HAI!

Anyway, after that, I sought new hairdo again and tried to have purplish deep tone with pink underneaths. Picture below is of an already faded pink --> orange bottom. But the idea was there.

Finally decided to be a Chinese again, I dyed my hair jet black. And this lasted for the whole summer plus my 3rd year 1st semster. Was quite a hit, people loved to see me au natural I guess. Dunno.

But finally sian of it, I colored my hair again, this time, inspired by the paint-drop-on-the-head look. A failed pink, turned copper red-orange, but fundamentally black.

What a colorful world.

Am I supposed to feel any different? Cos.. I still look the same when I last checked the mirror. oh, was that before midnight?

I got a new present, a poem!
I feel like CareBear!

This is to my grumpy.

I would like to thank everyone for attending my birthday party. :) Sorry for not being a good host, but you know that you are very, very appreciated.

And thanks for all the wonderful gifts. Thanks to my dear bro too, who gave me a fat ang bao. Hee...

And friends who din come because of one reason (excuse) or another, I'd still love you!

P.S. I din get my PS2.

Saturday, November 15, 2003

People has been msging me like what present I would like to have cos they really want to buy me something nice for this big year. But to be honest, apart from this particular fetish I have, there is seriously nothing much I need. I have been scratching my head far and long for something I might want, but I can't think of much either.

And my fetish is pretty expensive, well, I suppose. It is what every girl needs, IMHO. Who says Diamonds are a girl's best friend? Maybe in a few years time, but now, PS2 is a girl's best friend.

And on top of that, I really really wish I can have wireless lan at home, so that I can play FFXI online wirelessly, effortlessly.

I already figured out how to get the wireless thing, since Starhub is having a promo right now. I'd ditch Singnet and change to Starhub especially once my contract is over. In the meantime, it's really quite okay to move the modem upstairs and use DSL.

And I suppose after I get a PS2 and wireless lan, I'd really love a plasma TV in my room, cos it's really not very big.

But it's really gonna be one after the other.
1st: PS2
2nd: Wireless
3rd: Plasma TV

Cos the latter has no use if the formal is not fulfilled.

Oh boy oh boy, how thou shalt make my day.

Ever since I changed my number, I've been receiving quite a bit of wrong number calls. Gets on my nerves sometimes but it's been said and done and the number is beautiful so I'm alright about it still. In order to contain my privacy, I shall not display 1 of my hp no.

It's 90X00009. And I guess when people wants to call 900X0009 or 90X00000 or something they get my number, because they are not looking for any Tom, Dick or Larry in general but has been a few different names. One even ask me if I (the company?) is looking for cashiers? wtf?

If not for the free incoming calls, I'd probably be fuming. But now, I'd just

Congratulations roommie

Now officially hired by Starhub, so we will be working together during the holidays! Welcome to the world of hubbers. And guess what? During her interview, Mr Mike remembers us "at the top of his memory", the 3 of us. hiakhiakhiak. Do we really, erm, stand out? Hahaha..

And I wonder if he will find out I helped him sign off as Mickey Mouse at the mobile roadshow last week.
My roommate's all hyped up and totally addicted to blogging, just as I was about a year or 2 back.

Ramblings? All silly, shallow ones, but whines are whines so listen up.

Well, first of all - exams. Not that this exam matters much, as it is merely an exchange programme, I'm graded with pass/fail, and passing doesn't seem much of a problem. But this whole i've-got-exams sure brings me da bluez.

Then I have to pack up and go home. Luckily for me I've brought back bits and pieces back home, but there's still quite a bit to move and I hate the part of packing up and loading into a car. Talk about how sian it will be to drive down the lonely really long stretch of PIE all the way to Jalan Bahar. And where will all these things go in my house? The last time I check, I don't think I need 3 pillows and 2 bolsters.

Then silly birthday. I decided on a simple dinner inspired by Zhi Ping, minus the relatives. Just friends. Who cares if my secondary school friends do not know my JC friends? Or Uni friends? It's my day right. :) But well, anyway it's decided then. Saturday evening my house. All who reads this are invited to come.

And lastly, I think next sem sucks. :( All I will see is Finance Finance Finance... :X

being dumb

This is kinda complicated to type.

To make things short, i wanted to do double major in Finance and Economics. The requirement is taking extra 2 modules on top of the usual 35, provided my business options (a category of the modules lah, which is 3 subjects) all take the econs modules. & I got to take some global regional thingy too.

But basically i misread the requirement and thought it was EITHER 2 biz options + Global regional thing or 3 biz options, so I used up one of my biz options in ntu call retail marketing. Which, FYI, I did a shitload of work. Like never worked so hard in my life. And it will be redundant. Not accounted for.

So my point? If I decide to continue the double major, I got to squeeze 5 modules for the next 3 semsters, which 5, is very heavyload considering the specialised disgusting stuff it involves. Stuff like Corporate Reporting, Corporate Finance and friends, Applied Econmetrics (wtf), Public Sector economics, and friends.

Alternatively, I can screw the 2nd major and focus on Finance, if that being so I will need to forgo my summer holidays and take 2 summer term modules next year but be able to graduate half a year earlier.

Alternatively, I can still grad in 4 years, but I will be taking 3.5,4,4 modules. Which sounds pretty lame too. 3.5? Get my point?

Also, I have to do internship of 10 weeks, so if I have to take 2 summer subjects, I don't know when to take my internship. After graduation? It might be possible to be 5 weeks this December, 5 weeks next December, but that means I have totally no break, no life. This sem work, study, then summer term, then study again, then intern, then graduate.

So there, I am not sure what my decision should be. It's hard to live for the moment at times, this one I have to live for the next 1.5 years, as any silly mistakes = screwing up more.

(In short, should I
1. Take my double major still? (Taking 1 module in vain)
2. Take just 1 major
a. in 3.5 years?
b. in 4 years?

You know, it's always small things in life that makes you feel good. If course if there are any, big things in life that you do (obviously right), you feel good too, but one thing that make me feel good today, is that I feel appreciated.

Someone said to me, I never cease to amaze him. And well, I feel good, cos small things I do and say impact on people, in a positive light. It's nothing sweet, nothing (definitely no-no) romantic, nothing funny, nothing weird, but something deeply enholding. Because it is almost like he said if all things fail in life, there's still me (yeah me, me, me) who understands him. Awww... isn't that wonderful? I mean, that you mean something to someone, and that person doesn't have to be your boyfriend, father or brother. And you don't have to mean the whole world to him, but something somewhere somehow that you manage to reach deep down in the heart, and hopefully have a small place there forever, for being who you are.

And the thing is, it's really no great deal. Which makes it even better.

And if you dunno what I am saying, it's okay.

And if kaypoh you want to know what I said, it's simply

"To die, to sleep -
To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay there's the rub,
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we hae shuffled off this mortal coil,
Mus give us pause."

Almost regurgitating Ping's rants on her week, I have to say mine too.

Monday: Slept whole day
Tuesday: SMU Dine out test, flew home, flew to NTU
Wednesday: In the hall the whole day doing more project
Thursday: Still doing project (now)
Friday: Project presentation
Saturday: Work
Sunday: Work

What kind of mid-term break is this man. No exercise, no fun, no sun, not that much sleep, no good food, finished reading potter (no more aim in life). At least Ping gets to dive.

And I am so hungry now. Not to mention sleepy, from finishing book 5 yesterday nite. :P (Read till 6.30am)
And yes...
I finished Book5! What am I going to do now? *wails louder than Ping*

my virgin attempt at playwright and other juicy stuff

Joined SMU's 24 hour playwright competition. From yesterday night 8pm I had been struggling with 3 2 other teammates to write the play. It's a some experience, by that, it doesn't neccessarily have to be a good thing, experience not = good everytime. :D

Anyway, it's pretty fun, from brainstorming to writing down, to reading it out, like me and a partner to see the flow, to relate our story to as many plot as possible.

So far, we linked it to

A Beautiful Mind
Prince of Egypt
King Lear ala all Shakespearian tradegies
Pride and Prejudice
Hedda Gabler
My T.W.C project

Funny thing is the 4th groupmate, who was kinda sacked in the end, walked in 2 hours late, and criticised our plot to no end. And I bet either Mummy or some other smartass would have taught you that whenever you have something you don't see eye to eye with, at least reason out why, and offer an alternative.

First he said our plot is "so copied". he said why do you need to copy from the movies? Come up with something original!

I agree. However, I have to put across the fact that movies themselves while successful are most of the time not original too.

Titanic took a history and twisted it. 10 things I hate about you took Shakey's Taming of the Shrew, The John Harnett (awww) and Julia Stiles show "O" was taken from Shakey's Othello. Even our latest movie League of the Extraordinary Gentlemen was taken from a Comic, WHO in turn took the characters from various lit books, as I have once rave abit on.

And so I said my point. A good playwright is not about how original the idea is. Sure it may help, but if you don't have an idea, it's okay to gather pointers from other sources and write one with a good and hard impact.

Apparently not having heard my point at all, he went on to ask a very irrelevant question

"So Hui Hui, if there is something intangible about SMU that you can change, what would it be?"

I mean WTF? Then he talked about how a good original idea will be a distinction, while a copied play is a A+ tops.

So Mr another groupmate asked Mr Smarty so you've got any good plots?

Mr S says: XXX... I am not here to lead, I am here to brainstorm with all of you... Wake up your idea, not in army liao.

3 of us: ?????????????? again

Anyhow, we went on with the skeleton we painstakingly planned for 2 hours without him. And throughout the 24 hours, if I may even think he was here for 5, he went out to sleep, to study, went home without a word, and did as much work as changing some grammatical error and nodding of head in agreement.

And with that I present my case on him. Any further elaborations will be a waste of my time.

Other than that, I am extremely satisfied with the play, however unpro or awful critics feel. Afterall, it's my baby. And all Mummies thinks their babies are pretty (I think?)

the road to honors

Grade Point Average
A+ 4.3
A 4.0
A- 3.7
B+ 3.3
B 3.0
B- 2.7
C+ 2.3
C 2.0
C- 1.7
D+ 1.3
D 1.0
F 0.0

My current GPA: 2.86
To graduate with honours,
Summa Cum Laude (with highest honours) 3.8+
Magna Cum Laude (with high honours) 3.6 - 3.79
Cum Laude (with honours) 3.4 - 3.59

Assuming I want to aim for Cum Laude (which is no use anyway)

Total modules I am taking if i double major = 37.
Subjects cleared so far = 19
Subjects saved for exchange = 6 (meaning, GPA not counted)
Total accountable subjects = 31.

Current GPA fraction: 19/31 * 2.86 = 1.7529
Cum Laude = 3.4
Remainder GPA fraction: 3.4 - 1.7529 = 1.6741
Remaining subjects accountable for GPA = 12
Therefore, to get a 3.4 GPA, I need to get:

1.6741 * 31/12 = 4.32

But this is impossible because I need to get A+ for every semster, every subject.

Just to get 2nd lower!

*dunno to laugh or cry*

People that typically score in this range sometimes have trouble recognising and understanding their feelings. They are not always able to express their feelings in the most appropriate manner. They often have doubts and concerns about who they really are. They do not have much confidence in themselves and in their abilities. In most circumstances, they have a difficult time showing love, empathy and compassion for other people. In general, they are not comfortable with intimacy.

They also have trouble communicating with other people. They struggle with getting in tune with themselves and those around them. They may sometimes say the wrong thing at the wrong moment. They sometimes find it hard to show their anger or deal with anger directed at them. At times they are unable to stand up for themselves when hurt or they are handle confrontation inappropriately. They may have trouble admitting when they are wrong; and when they do make mistakes, they are often uncomfortable apologising to those they hurt.

People with below average EQ may also have low levels of self-worth. They do not like challenges or commitment and are afraid of change. They have a difficult time staying motivated and focused when they have set unattainable goals for themselves. They are fairly pessimistic about themselves and their future.

However, one great thing about emotional intelligence is that it’s fluid! A person can increase their EQ at any point of their life! People with below average EQ can start by learning how to identify their emotions and take responsibility for them. There are many resources to help. People with low EQ can read books about EQ and social skills, find out about anger management courses and communication skills courses, join a support group or see a counsellor. They can keep a diary of their emotions, and ask their friends to help them recognise the things about themselves that need correcting. If these things are done there is no doubt that they can increase their emotional intelligence and live a healthy, happy life.

Good movies aplenty!

Just a few months go I was whining about how the movies were terrible. Even if I had the money and wanted to watch something, there wasn't much.

And now, waaay cool! First there was a pretty okay LXG, then comes the very very very brilliant Pirates of the Carribean!

Depp rocks man! Orlando don't. I mean, he is boring boring Hero! That every other show has. Better off back as a cute blonde elf in LOTR.

I mean, look at this guy man! Ain't he so cute so cute? This rustic charm, out of the blue, different. Well, I sure don't get why people insist that they watch this show because of Orlando. C'mon!!

Anyway, did you know that all his eccentricity ain't what the director/ producer wanted but what he came up with himself? That he felt that the character "felt" that way.

I watched it twice, once with dardar and once with my sis. And I intend very much to buy the DVD too.

Rating: *****

Finally finished one project presentation. This is probably the longest in my life. It lasted from 9am all the way till 12. 3 hours neh, have you guys ever tried before?

Anyway, it has been donkey years since I have updated, but the most happening thing that has happened in my life is probably reading Harry Potter. Oh, yah, I managed to go for SMU new band practice. Well, it was pretty cool, quite fun, had the feeling of being back in a JC band and stuff. Managed to play some sound out, but tone and pitching drop like crap. :(

1 wise soul said, "If only playing the horn is like riding a bicycle, once you learn you never forgets......."

Yeah, how I wish. But anyway, I think I shall try to be more involved. Once again, another cool sounding pioneer (tho not exactly very impressive) CCA.

Pioneer member of bowling team, pioneer IVP team, now pioneer band members.

a dummy's guide to LXG

Hawley Griffin
Which League of Extraordinary Gentlemen character are you?

brought to you by Quizilla

The movie is based on acclaimed comics author Moore, who combined his love of 19th-century adventure literature with an imaginative mastery of its 20th-century corollary, the superhero comic book.

Features a grand collection of signature 19th-century fictional adventurers, covertly brought together to defend the empire. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comprises such characters as Minna Murray (formerly Harker), from Bram Stoker's Dracula; Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr. Jekyll (and his monstrous alter ego, Mr. Hyde); and Jules Verne's Captain Nemo, restored to the dark, grim-visaged Sikh Verne originally intended. There's also Hawley Griffin, the imperceptible hero of H.G. Well's The Invisible Man, and Allan Quartermain, the daring adventurer of King Solomon's Mines and other classic yarns by H. Rider Haggard.

Kind of brought back my secondary school memories, when I was doing literature and studied Dracula, Portrait of Dorian Gray, Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde etc. below is a really short guide to who is who, this isn't a spoiler, but understanding the background of these characters will allow you to understand some of the puns at the beginning of the show. But note that I only know some of the characters.

One of my fave book was Dorian Gray, whose portrait grew old on his behalf, therefore he was deemed immortal. In actual classic, he killed himself when he tried to destroy the portrait.
Minna was wife of Jonathan Harker, lawyer, who worked for Dracula, turned vampire after. In actual classic, she became normal again, after Dracula died.
Dr Jekyll Mr Hyde, same guy, certain potion brought out the evil side of Dr Jekyll, hideous and ugly. Grew bigger and stronger as the evil overcomes the good. In actual classic, he killed himself because he lost control of when he turned into Hyde. Anyway, he totally reminded me of the Hulk, just that he wasn't all too green.
Tom Sawyer is the Tom Sawyer is Mark Twain, though I din read that book.

Overall, I'd give it a 6.5/10, but I personally enjoyed it and did not regret watching, but Ping thought it wasn't all that good.

school starts tommorrow

Tommorrow marks the 3rd academic year at SMU. Dear is kinda stressed going to school all over again after like 4 years, and I guess it must be pretty scary, I mean, well, first day at school sorta thing. Almost felt the same way at NTU the other time, and felt like shit being lost. (Hey but can't blame me, NTU is like freaking big?)

Being in NTU for the past month did kinda evoke certain emotions in me, particularly because there is one Professor in NTU who always seem to subtly pick on us, saying things like,

"I thought SMU students like to contribute in class a lot.."

Pretty uncalled for huh. I don't know. But I guess in a really tiny way it reflects how we should get out into the world and look at things from the other angle, like you know how people always say Singaporeans are very shallow and haven't seen the world and thinks too much about themselves? This is probably a small representation, as I see how people view my own institution, vs the things we are so used to say in our own school.

In a certain way it has kinda prepared me for the overseas exchange. I know Ping is always ready, but to me, being emotionally ready and physically ready is different. What I probably learn from NTU is, you probably got to get used to being disappointed.

It's not a big deal, NTU's pretty cool, the hall environment and shit, but the school culture? Nah, SMU culture rocks.

Checklist for school:
Lan Card

Okay, all set for classes. :P

it's such a tiring thing to 1. work 3 times a week, 10 hours each shift while studying 2. celebrate 2 angels birthday in the midst of working 10 hours shift 3 times a week.

I will survive, I have survived.

Innovative presents of the year:

A remake of the past for Ping a ling ling - getting a pressie almost identical (but less authentic) than a pressie she lost
Inner hush hushs, bum coverings and a very expensive bag of styroform for Rosiemary.

Happy Birthday my dears!

My parents are so cute.

I wouldn't consider our family a very affectionate one. Like we do not exchange hugs and kisses. As cliche as it sounds, we are Asian, and it's a conservative society. Of course there are exceptions, but we happen to fall in the very typical sort of family. But my parents always try to be involved in our lives, supporting us in their own unique way. Simple things like fetching us around, to school, to the bus stop, to the MRT stations, visiting the new hall or new workplace and all, pretending to come by with the intention of a free meal, but I don't think they care whether the meal's free or not.

They came to fetch me at NTU last Saturday after work (it's a pretty long drive) and we drove around for a tour around the school, his alma mater. He look so happy, to be back after like what, 30 years? Babbled on about the lake, the chinese heritage center, and we even tried to look for the hall he stayed in last time, and surprisingly it is still there, and it is Hall 2. I was told my mum even went to the Yunnan Garden to take pictures and visited his hall, and so we tried to remake the past by posing exactly the same way as before.

Later in the night, they dugged out the old photo album and reminisce the past. There, my dad proudly said,

"So pretty hor, mummy?"

Showed me the picture of my mum that he stuck onto his hostel room, told me how my Ah ma did not like my mum to go out too often, only 2, 3 times a month, about how she loved to eat chocolates, and so on. Then my mum started to ask him why he liked her, she is wasn't an undergrad, so skinny so tan (which happens to be kinda the perfect girl in the current society, but bai bai nern nern were the fashionable look) and not very pretty. etc etc

And of course, more mushy stuff was replied. They look so happy, so blissful. So together. That really set me wondering if I will be able to go into my 27th year of marriage and still be as happy as them. Of course, my mummy is no longer skinny and tan, and my papa has developed the middle age belly, but they are still so lovey dovey with each other. And live through everyday spending almost 24 hours together, working together, coming home together, sleeping together, watching TV together.

Of course it's not that simple, but they manage to pull through - together. And my latest wish in life is to be able to find someone I can share my life the same way.

a new place called the 2nd home

It's somewhere in Nanyang Crescent, learned the roadname after an almost lost (okay okay lost) incident.

Ma Life

Roommate - NUS, exchange too . Nice, likes her . Keeps gerbils . Named them rum, champagne and ??? . Gerbils gave birth on Friday, now we'd have a Vodka and Magarita maybe.

Fellow SMUians - next block, occupied a room vacant for a while. Reason? Unknown. Happy 4 of us meetup everynight for social gathering and some other stuff. :x

Other friends so far only include people from ma JC, and Ping's friends from JC (or other sources).

So far I have.........

Attended a seminar styled lesson which was pretty stressful for us, since everyone in the class knows we are from the dramatically different SMU, with horse-shoe styled lesson and lurrrve to speak up in class. Therefore, a strong sense of belonging beckons us to uphold the SMU image, but I doubt it can be done much.

Attended a 200 strong lecture. Felt like I was in JC. LT smelt like smelly socks. Lecture was utterly boring. Decided SMU is the best. Zao after 1 hour.

Cycled around the school. Visited various halls of residence and almost died on the slopes. Realised why people don't usually cycle in school, except perhaps someone by the name of s e h s u a n. :D Gave up at Hall 3. Called Rose for help. Walked/ Jogged back in the end.

Ate at NBS canteen. Haven't ate in a canteen for a while. Amused by the yellow boxes in front of each stall. Figured it's for smooth human traffic flow after happily standing in it for about 1 minute. Drinks are freaking 30cents!

Found my dad's old hall. Block 18! And it's still there. Talk about it being more than 30 years old man. Damn freaky.

Kinda lost my way when I went for the above boring makeup lecture on Saturday. Never realised the yellow bus stops it's services at 2pm. Waited for 2 hours and din know how to get home. 179, the only SBS bus at the busstop, did not go to my hall. Frantically called up all the NTU ppl I know, and the one with car did not become my knight in shiny armour because he was happily sleeping in the hall. !@#$%@$. Poor us finally flagged a cab and took it from South Spine to Hall 15. How smart.

Cultural shock so far:

1. People do not call their Professors Prof. When I said Bye Prof! He kinda gave me a funny look.

2. There is, really, a lot of PRCs.

3. Paying 20cents for the stupid bus ride which travels at 20 cents speed. I LOVE SBS!

4. Notes are already printed for you at the photocopying places. You just need to go and collect them. Don't have to print!

5. People ask the prof which few suggested texts he could probably read. Who the F*** reads suggestive extra readings? Even if you do, who the F*** asks on the 1st lesson!

Awaits more interesting happenings in my life.

Thursday, July 24, 2003


If ever there is a company called Behind The Scenes that wants to hire you for whatever reason, DON'T. It is the most screwed up company I have ever seen in my 21 years of life.

And the director told me I can take whatever actions I want to, and he told my dad too, so I am not afraid of telling the whole world here. And calling up the bank to let them know about it, and hopefully make the company lose their only client.

Worked for them, this shite event company, hired us to promote XXX bank's (they are quite nice so let's not spell it out) opening ceremony and stuff. And well, that was April.

Guess what? I haven't even got my pay!

They have been dragging for years, as long as it's possible, 1st claiming that XXX bank, which is a MNC, did not pay them. I mean, hello? you sure? Then now they change their tactic and suddenly decided to be a American based company, and are waiting for the funds in US to come.

I worked for them for the bank, and the bank has paid up, so what has it got to do with the funds? Obviously the company is in deep shit, and having some financial problems, so bad that they can't even take out less than a grand. I don't know. And they are playing mind games, saying things like

"you have been the most patient....... please trust me........... one week........"

WTF. Trust you? How to? You promised like a billion time to pay, but never did. Even asked my dad to talk to them and they said the same thing to him. Tried to threaten him somemore.

Called up the bank and they are nice enough to help us put pressure on the company. It's not even the bank's fault at all. Even if the banks owe them 100k, it's none of our business, it's between them, and we are just freelancer isn't it. And thing is, the bank paid up already? So wtf did they do to our money?

The only worry I have is that they'll close down, and there goes me and Ping's 600 bucks. Yea it's just 600 bucks you think, but I worked hard and paid it off with sweat, literally, under the hot sun, skating around like a bimbo.

Mood: utterly pissed

I'm in Singapore

Back for 2 days already. Love Thailand, but don't miss it that much, it's just 2 hours away anyway, we can always go back.

Continuing the previous entry which ended at the internet cafe, we went back to feed the mosquitoes at the hotel lobby. Slumped into a sofa that was not too comfortable and breeds mozzies. Gawd, I thought I would die. Went back to Ayutthaya and had many many nodes of nostalgia running through my little body. Seeing the kids, learning that these kids remember my name (and all you Aegiers out there, erm maybe some), realising that they remember all the songs we taught them, and the line dance too. It's great to see the villagers, and it is a great difference how villagers live their lives and how they treat us as compared to the people in the city. All the pushing and cursing can never be found in the village. If given a choice to live in Ayutthaya or Bangkok, I'd choose Ayu. anytime. BTW, the kids were pestering the principal everyday, asking him when we are going back. Awww!

Thinking back, just wanna laugh at ourselves. I mean, it's quite right to do it, but it's kinda funny. 1st thing we ask the cabbie is "meter"? Once he start saying funny things like "I drive you to XXX, very cheap, only 10b", the next thing he turns around, we are all gone. Hands always on the doorknob ready to jump off the cab.

Some Thai lingo

"cheep, cheep, no charge expensib, wholesale pri"
"i no make money"
"give me more, give me one more pri"
"same same locals, i sell you"

our lingo

"too expensive"
"paeng la"
"what is your best price"
"sell cheaper la, we buy more"
"don't sell cheap we don't buy"

Anyway, now it's time to move on in life and adapt to the Nan-Da lifestyle.

Thursday, July 17, 2003

I'm in Thailand

Sitting at a internet cafe with many other kids around playing CS. 3rd day in Thailand and we are stranded without a hotel room. Things just was a little off what we hoped and expected, but no worries, it's quite fun still. Poor Rose Rose is sick though, kept coughing. So kelian. And dear Ping Ping is getting the virus too!

Anyway, I just cannot believe how resourceful we always try to be, thinking of all kinds of weird ideas to get through. We are supposed, or rather planned to stay at Ayutthaya, but the bus took too long and the place we wanted to stay is not available too. But in the end, we thought of going to the hotel we are supposed to check in tommorrow and decide to bunk in there at the lobby for the night, pretended that our friend we are supposed to stay with is sick and all (You go Ping! - can always trust Ping to think of this sorta thing.) and go to Ayutthaya to visit the villagers tommorrow first thing in the morning.Went to Rayong once we reached BKK airport, stayed overnight at a budget 400B apartment, then went to a very very pretty Ko Samet. The beach is really what you call powder white sand and clear water. Tried to be a true blue backpacker sourcing for the cheapest rooms around but then always fail. :P

There was a few hiccups on the way, some unexpected happenings which I think would be too long and inappropriate to say here, but I feel that I have learned quite a bit from this experience. Looking forward to the next few days shopping till I drop here!

Thursday, July 10, 2003

Love hate relationship with the NEL.

As of everything in the infant stage, there will be hiccups. All the sudden delays and buey zhun timing display of the next arriving train gets on my nerve, but it's really pretty convenient. It'd get better, says SBS, it had better.

Found the lit-up track a lil' irritating when I try to nap on the train, kinda glares into my eyes. But it is such a pretty sight, isn't it. I love this picture man. 1 of the only few pictures I can be proud of.

mobile training

Went for the mobile training today. It's soOOoO silly. Spent the whole day there from 8.30am to 5pm, with the first half of the day talking all about customer service, and how to smile, approach customers and even more crappy stuff.

If we are going to smile, we will smile, if we are dao, we will remain dao. I don't think a morning of smile preaching is gonna be of any use, especially when you are not that effective a trainer, bite your own tongue while talking and laugh at your not-too-funny joke. I was seriously bore to death, stared at everything from my toes to my nails, even tried to check out my blackheads on my nose.

And the worse part is, they're just training people for a 2 day roadshow.

And, the worst part is, I don't understand why they are putting me through
1. a smiley session
2. cable TV/ Maxonline training (for tommorrow)

I mean, I worked for weeks for the 2. already. Waste my time man!

The age old decision - Finance or Marketing

And I sort of came up with a conclusion. Although I am not too sure how long this decision is going to stay with me. In general, I kind of thought of the pros and cons:

Marketing: Easier to study and graduate. Higher chance of getting honours. Not so stress. Should be more fun. But not as marketable. General. Anyone can do it.

Finance: Tough. Boring. Lots of numbers. But useful. Very. Why?

A book I read taught me that many well educated people in this world are not finacially educated. They earn more, spend more and get themselves into a vicious cycle where they worry of not having enough money to pay off their mortage loans and credit card bills. They work for people. And fear being sacked, prays hard to get retirement pensions. The people in the rat race.

But rich people are financially educated, they know how to make money work for them, buying in good stocks and practically live off their dividends and royalties (for writing a book like that). In other words, are able to stop working but still can manage to live a comfortable life.

Of course you do not need to be a major in Finance to know all of that, or in a sense, become a Rich Man. But then, since I'm paying school fees anyway, and will want to learn about all these one day, why not go along with the flow and learn it from school.

Convincing? Now I just have to convince myself and my friend.

There was a girl who was pretty bored in the cinema. Apparently she din quite enjoy the show. We know because she started scratching her scalp and she only does that when she is bored. :P Well the movie will be rated 3.5/5 to me, I guess, overly exaggerated actions without much of a storyline nor character buildup for most characters. But alright on a weekday @ $6.50 at Cineleisure, especially since the ticket stubs entitle you to a free bowling game! Bet you din know that.

Anyway, the high of the movie is the inspiring Abs. :P

Anyway, after that, we tried our hands at bowling and it is surprisingly very fun when you laugh your head off washing the gutters and not getting super stress over not striking. It's quite fun when you just want to anyhow throw and stuff. But man house shoes is a no-go, yuckies it stinks, and it doesn't slide at all. I almost fell at my very 1st throw cos I expected it to slide but I kinda stopped short. Haha, nvm.

Let's do it again girls.

Monday, June 30, 2003

Ping is booking the tickets to Thailand at this very moment for all of us. Most likely going on 14th July to 20th, which is from Monday to Sunday. Going to some beach, Ayutthaya and Bangkok. Gonna visit the villagers we knew from our YEP trip last December. Hee, quite exciting.

Afterall, this holidays haven't been any exciting. Apart from going to Batam, that's about all. Worked, clubbed, shopped, very typical.

Anyway, after a looong exhausting almost non-stop work of 2 weeks, finally! Have time to watch Charlie's Angels with the girls. 3 girls watching somemore, isn't that cute

Anyway, I've got black hair now. Should I color it?
Yeah! New template and new comment box. Hopefully it wouldn't be milkless again all the time. :D

Have been working for the past 2 weeks. Practically non-stop but the job satisfaction level is pretty high. At least i can pride in saying that the work is reasonable, the colleagues are fine and so is the pay. Furthermore, it can become a permanent part time job for me, like whenever there are roadshows on weekends and all I can still work for them during school time.

and, best of all, it is unlike my other jobs which had either high pay low job satisfaction or low pay low satisfaction, and ALSO had yet to pay me still for months and on already. The company is this event company which I shan't name since the boss can sue me. Apparently we worked for them in April and till now our pay is not in yet. When I said I'm going to the MOM to complain, then they start to panic a little, but yet the boss still think the ball is in his hand when he say MOM process takes 2 months and all, so he wants to do it without going through MOM. Please don't work for them, unless you don't mind getting your January pay in June. Know what I mean? They come up with lotsa excuses, client haven't pay them la, no written records la, etc.

Photos will be up when Ping sends them to me, and if I am free la. Lazy.

Thursday, June 26, 2003

My mummy told me today she was listening to some radio station discussing on how people do not offer their seats to the elderly/ pregnant women. So as usual, 38 aunties and people who don't have much to do call in to voice their views. She said there was one caller who saw a pregnant woman (P1) giving up the seat to another pregnant woman (P2). And when P2 told P1 "You're pregnant too!" P1 said, "Your stomach bigger, so you sit la!"

And what did the rest of the bus/ MRT do? Pretended to be asleep/ busy/ simply don't care.

And what that caught her attention and totally digusted me was this caller who said,

"Why must pregnant women get to sit? You know, kids come home from school, very tired one le, they need to sit and sleep and rest in the bus. If the pregnant woman not tired, then don't sit lor!"


What is the world becoming man!

Post of the day

Apart from the stupid Blogger, life has been pretty good to me lately, if I decide to be contented with life.

I am having this job that is quite enjoyable, will have a little bit of money, so that I can go to Thailand again!

My application to NTU is granted, and all my friends who applied got in too. Now I can look forward to a memorable hall life experience with them. :D

Thursday, June 19, 2003

I typed like a FUCKING long entry and it just went gone again.

Saturday, June 14, 2003

my first day at work(yet again!)

My current newest job is working for Starhub Maxonline & CableTV. A roadshow assistant, basically a sales personel, but without commission. Why? Cos we are part timers. Used to have commissions for part timers when they were SCV, but because of the merge, pay and commission must be similar, so well, we too cannot have commission cos mobile peeps don't.

And I closed 5 deals today! Yipee! Just a sense of satisfaction, and it was quite stressful. But quite a happening job. All the pushing and promoting is pretty good experience for me I guess, though I met some people who had zilch knowledge, some thought they were so smart and keep asking me about the protocol of the modem. duh

Just that sigh......

If the commission thing was still there....

I would have been $50 richer.

Bloody hell.


And I have 3 jobs now, technically speaking. Muahahahhahaa!
