Woke up. Played game. Ate. Did work. Played game. Ate. TV. Played game. Run. Did work.
Life is sometimes full of patterns isn't it.

Have you ever thought of why some people spend thousands on enormous sound systems, only to ironically buy pirated DVDs from JB to blast in those expensive sets?

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."
- Hamlet (3.1.64 - 68)

I am so, so, so, hooked. Bloodshot eyes, panda rings, all damn worth it. I don't even know why I am online now.

FFX, you rock baby!

(But I kinda felt guilty not visiting my grandma for it) I Promise. No More Next Time.

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?)
