Do you remember when we fell in love

i saw them in october and i knew it was love. for $159.41, i guess love doesn't come cheap.

in a few minutes it'll be 2010. somehow it feels more significant since we're going into the 10s. and it'll be JC next year too. another big step. i'll be 17 in june too; the world would have gone on for a year without him.

usually people tell you to look forward, to not let the past hold you down. but right now, i just don't want to let go. i guess some of us hated it, because seeing the same people almost everyday for 4 years can't be healthy. we start to see their bad points and then they start to rub us the wrong way; reminds me of family actually.

there was never much opportunity to be someone new; everyone knew you and they expected you to be... you. but that's not to say we never changed. the changes were often small, a gradual sort of thing, but when i look back it's just so amazing how we're so different.

and of course, there is always something special about a familiar environment. you're just more comfortable with everyone, like wearing a broken-in shoe, and you can make this random remark and everyone will know that you were referring to that event such many years ago. people have expectations of you, but you can also expect them to know what you like and dislike, what you want, what you'd enjoy.

even though school has ended for what seems like infinity already, it suddenly dawned on me that my 4 years of nanyang life are over. next year there'll be another bunch of 16 year old girls, all thinking about their life and their friends, their dreams and their fears. and even though we all went through the same education, moving along the same tunnel in life, somehow at the end of the tunnel, we'll branch out into our separate paths. i guess xeo was the first to start off, and it struck me then how brave she was to do something different. you go girl ;D

in two years it'll be the same thing again. with more of us going overseas, and sending a friend off at the airport will be a common occurence. there will always be ups and downs; bumps will come along and rock the boat. but i guess there's something we all have that no one else will. 4 years as thirteeners; it sounds so long yet it felt so short.

so it's hc next year. time to move on. i feel as if im letting go of the rope and letting myself fall into a chasm of unpenetrable darkness. i can only hope i'll learn to fly.


When you start on your journey to Ithaka,
then pray that the road is long,
full of adventure, full of knowledge.
Do not fear the Lestrygonians
and the Cyclopes and the angry Poseidon.
You will never meet such as these on your path,
if your thoughts remain lofty, if a fine emotion
touches your body and your spirit.
You will never meet the Lestrygonians,
the Cyclopes and the fierce Poseidon,
if you do not carry them within your soul,
if your soul does not raise them up before you.

Then pray that the road is long.
That the summer mornings are many,
that you will enter ports seen for the first time
with such pleasure, with such joy!
Stop at Phoenician markets,
and purchase fine merchandise,
mother-of-pearl and corals, amber and ebony,
and pleasurable perfumes of all kinds,
buy as many pleasurable perfumes as you can;
visit hosts of Egyptian cities,
to learn and learn from those who have knowledge.

Always keep Ithaka fixed in your mind.
to arrive there is your ultimate goal.
But do not hurry the voyage at all.
It is better to let it last for long years;
and even to anchor at the isle when you are old,
rich with all that you have gained on the way,
not expecting that Ithaka will offer you riches.

Ithaka has given you the beautiful voyage.
Without her you would never have taken the road.
But she has nothing more to give you.

And if you find her poor, Ithaka has not defrauded you.
With the great wisdom you have gained, with so much experience,
you must surely have understood by then what Ithaka means.

-- Constantine Cavafy

Happy New Year.

this is why i'm so obsessed:
Today I realized something. Once the last Harry Potter movie comes on DVD, that's the end of Harry Potter. If they follow their schedule's correctly, this should happen around 2012. The end of Harry Potter means the end of the world. MLIA


i dont know... but this is fun. and at the rate i'm going i shall end up like joey and post lots and lots and lots :D

though i suspect joey's posts are probably more meaningful than mine :/

nevermind. here's a mlia:
Today, i was doing a career and life management homework survey. One of the questions was "I am an indecisive person: agree, disagree or not sure" I circled "not sure". MLIA
that sounds a lot like me and zinc. which is why the two of us don't make very good presents-shoppers. especially not together alone.

ooo an oxymoron.

and your two thousand and nine singapore idol...

is a guy again -.-


i completely forgot about it until i saw this:
The other day I walked into my gym's pool early in the morning, hoping I would be the only person in the pool. As I rounded the corner of the locker room, I saw the lifeguard riding the squeegy like a broom and shouting Harry Potter spells. He indeed thought he was alone until I came walking in. I think I've found my new best friend. MLIA
and yes, we had wizard duels with sparklers. i still think me and pling won :D

gaga, ohh lala

class party was awesome. fluffy's alive! i hate musical chairs. spent lots of money yesterday. bought new sneakers. got lots of presents for friends. went to so many places with zinc. sales all around! stupid forever21. stupid korean shoe site which won't ship overseas. mean friend-of-sis who won't help me bring the shoes back. my elbow feels dislocated. scratch on my face is itching. i have no internet in my room. i like giving presents. hopefully the spirit of christmas will stay with me. cynicism scares me. i'm fine with being shallow. i'm feeling too lazy to write a proper full length post. that about sums it up. goodnight.

last christmas i gave you my heart

so my posts always seem to be a little late, but MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! and i'm supposed to be sleeping but since i woke up at 2pm today, my body clock is all messed up. and yeah i slept till 2 on christmas day, no worms for the bad bad late birdy.

anyway, considering i was at my grandma's house till midnight++ on christmas eve, sleeping in is justified even though all i did was play monopoly and write letters with sparklers. and my parents lost money in mahjong again. tsk tsk.

oh and of course, pardon the totally uglayy shots but hey, i'm still new to the whole camwhoring thing :D (heh my sis broke her horns, leaving me the only horn-y one -.-)

oooo and HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUNTIE SUSAN! (how cool it must be to have your birthday on christmas day!)

(and prince is really starting to look like a panda. he was sleeping under the christmas tree today; so cute!)

too tired to do anything

i've been meaning to post about my korea + shanghai trip, but somehow too many emotional ups and downs have left me drained and typing out a long post with pictures just seems impossible right now.

livejournal is bloody screwing with me. need to fix the odd posts damnit.

avatar's a good movie. best enjoyed with a packet of fruit loops.

i must not lust over shoes. that is a shallow thing to do. i shall lust over hot guys with long hair instead.

why am i going to the blogskins outing? someone might eat me.

and this post finally got posted at 12.06am cause odd's still screwing and i'm taking a break.

i'll post about korea tomorrow. or rather today, if ying doesn't run me to the ground. and i mean that literally.

i need more chocolate so that i can drown my woes in artery-clotting goodness.

have i mentioned how much...


Thursday, December 10, 2009

wouldn't want to be in your shoes

i'm feeling kind of happy hormonal now from reading the book/ebook. i'm absolutely fangirling eric, who is this sexy viking vampire from the sookie stackhouse series, which is basically the book i've been reading with the booby girl.

anyway, i think my legs have been lagging cause now they ache from yesterday. me and ying sort of went to do field work for ODD at ion (read: window shopping :D) then went to run errands and get stuff for ODD. we bought 2meters of bubble wrap which is mighty awesome. i think i might buy some for popping fun next time i feel rich, which won't be too soon since i just blew 47bucks on a pair of shoes. and i wonder if i'll actually wear them since ying and i so stupidly wore heels (bah) yesterday and hence the aching feet.

my sis has recently been complaining about how i exclusively listen to mj songs only cause now i've got them stuck in her head too. but i cant help it, and i've been using his songs to sort of tackle my insomnia too. like i used to feel sleepy at 1am only, then i'd go to bed and toss and turn till around 3am before i finally fall asleep. and it didn't help that i was shit tired and had eyebags you could drown in. actually, i've always had the eyebags so nevermind. but listening to mj songs kinda lull me to sleep some time within the 1 hour i set on my ipod's sleep timer so it's better than tossing for 2hours.

and we saw a big pine at popular yesterday. so cute :D

"well after loving me, she said she couldn't love another"

oh double fucking damn

it just goes to show
how quickly things change

still cracks me up

it's only once every blue moon that i actually visit facebook and somehow i came across these. laughed like mad, laughed some more, and boredom finally took over.
though i wonder why i always seem to be the one getting owned :[

there'll never be another like him

"A flash mob is a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual action for a brief time, then quickly disperse." - wikipedia

Thursday, December 03, 2009

fingers crossed

went to watch Christmas Carol today with ying, zinc, sming and addie and the movie did absolutely nothing for me. since i haven't actually seen/read any other version (except for a warped one which involved a vampire so that doesn't count), i was kinda hoping for it to be more... impactful. but the whole mood(?) of the thing was mostly ---------- in other words, completely monotonous.

before it started zinc said some reviews mentioned it was scary so i was all hyped up for some good horror. but apart from a few very small parts, it wasn't. how absolutely disappointing. and i think some parts that were meant to be scary were actually quite rediculously funny. like the laughing skull. honestly that just reminded me of some MJ video with a moonwalking skeleton to the point where i burst out laughing. and speaking of the spirits, i couldn't stand the way the first one talked so... draggy and echoe-y? it was like he thought we were idiots and he had to speak slowly for us -.- and then the second one just kept laughing and that was irritating. he also had a lot of chest hair, which is a big no-no. and since he was wearing a bath robe thing, i almost thought he was going to flash when he whipped it open :/ and having Ignorance and Want (yeah with the capital I and W; talk about corny) hiding at his feet was just disturbing since i think he was wearing a dress/skirt or something. i just had too many images of them crawling under to take a peak at the big guy.

i guess this is why ying thinks i'm vulgar. and at this rate i think i'm going to hell :/

anyway, ohdoubledamn seems to coming along alright, though it's quite slow but hey, we have our first sold out item already :D and since it's always better to end on a positive note, i'll stop here and continue reading my book. apparently my sis is reading another vampire series. i wonder if hers has booby girls too :/

a murky response for jo

since i don't think i have the stamina to do long detailed posts like jo's, i shall keep it simple. really, life is a lot easier that way.

so yesterday i found a cup of milk i'd poured but later forgot about. since it's usually not safe to drink milk that's been left out for a long time, i was sad at wasting the milk. then i looked into the cup and realised that i'd already drank about two thirds of it. i was then not as sad when i had to pour the rest of the milk down the sink.

most of the time, wasting it all is really just that - a waste. but forcing it done when it's too late will just make you sick and extremely unhappy. so i live the kind of life where i don't have to go to the extreme, somewhere in between is fine with me. sometimes it's fun to mess up the lines.

then again, as i mentioned to ying, different backgrounds, different views.

my head's pounding like a drummer on crack

today turned out to be a strangely cultural day, considering how i woke up and spent half of it reading. anyway, visited my paternal grandma, then went to little india where sis and i got henna and then found this really cute shop with all sorts of fun things. we bought reindeer ears for 1.50 only which is awesome. was considering buying this light saber thing which actually lights up when it comes into contact with something. but then we had to go so my parents pulled us away from our mock fight and left this about 6-year-old girl playing on her own. ok, so maybe my mum was justified in calling us childish.

anyway, went to this temple dinner thing and i can still hear the man shouting prices in hokkien. basically there was this bid thing going on and boy, was he loud. and repetitive. on the bright side, now i can count from 1 to 10 in hokkien though i'll probably forget everything by tomorrow.

we left the dinner early cause it was late (hey i used use oxymorons in a sentence :D) and my sis needed to pee but refused to use those portable potties. got home, then ended up having a.. heated discussion with said sis over superficial things, ie looks. honestly, zinc is uncountable times prettier than my sis. and i know this, cause i've had to live with my sis for 13 years and i've seen enough pictures of zinc while working on odd. that, and i used to see her almost everyday when school was still on.

really, i wish my sis would stop insulting my friends. *huffs*

on a side note, i still find androgenous people good-looking, though i'm quite sure i'm not bisexual. why? cause right now, i really really really really hate breasts. there, i've said it. the big bad booby word. i mean they're just two big, or sometimes small, lumps on your chest. like, if they were anywhere else, everyone would have them removed. like tumours or cancers. so what is this thing with breasts. (ha i said it again) they're uncomfortable and heavy and totally un-aerodynamic, so one day if humans ever can fly, women will end up slower not cause of any metabolism shit but because they have breasts. honestly, breasts aren't even beneficial to females, they just mean you could end up with breast cancer. behold, the pink ribbon.

and since i seem to be on a roll (towards an early grave), breast removal surgery is called mastectomy btw. and going for it when you don't need it is as stupid as going for breast implants cause every surgery has its risks and it would totally suck to die from blood loss or some icky infection.

and i seem to have ended up at a completely different point from what i wanted to say. oh screw, my hand thinks on its own so don't blame me. this is also why guns are kill people. and before i stuff even more foots (feet?) in my mouth, i shall just stare at space.

which you could do too; just look to the left/right of your screen :D

for the record, i really love this skin and whooo. long post (y)

head in the stars

finally, a new skin. took me the whole day to do it, what with using tables for about the first time in my life. but floating divs were pissing me off because something kept screwing up. so yes to hell with that. and for the record, i reallyyyyy hate internet explorer. firefox beats it pants down. and i'm going to go back to reading my book about a booby girl. honestly, the author mentions her boobs every 10 pages.

oh and on a side note, ODD is coming along nicely and the pictures are pretty amazing. looking forward to the 1st :)

i want to believe

the creative writing course ended today. i can't say i'll miss it, but it feels a little sad to know that was the last lesson i will ever have in nanyang. and it wasn't too bad, to be honest. sure, getting up shit early every day sucked, but somehow i feel like i've actually learnt something. we read stories, we shared secrets, we went incognito in chinatown... i guess we had fun. so that's not too bad for a gcp; i don't think local cip could have been better. oh and how could i forget the chocolates.

Sunday, November 22, 2009

to keep or not to keep

i seem to be posting more recently :/ *shrug* i guess i'm just too bored what with everyone else being overseas. and me being stuck in a creative writing course that actually has homework *head, table* anyway, i think i'm in love with my marble washed jeans. no idea what thats means, but i feel like i'm wearing a patch of the sky when i prance around in it :)

and of course, the boots came. and my mum freaked. and i freaked. and i fell in love. again. but since i can't keep both pairs, i had to make a painful choice between the two. sigh, why weren't humans created with eight legs? that would totally justify me buying 10 pairs in 2 months. thank goodness i managed to get rid of some impulse buys. and here... oh well i love the buckle ones too much to part with them so i'll miss you, you short studded things.

and my posts seem to be getting more and more frivolous :/ zzz.

Friday, November 20, 2009


and a random photo that i just had to take. please support OHDOUBLEDAMN yeah :D (and i totally didn't draw on the book. i don't vandalise library books; really)

(i mean really, it's photoshop)

anyway went to times with jo today and i suddenly feel vaguely poor. no idea why, though the $100+ receipt would be a good place to start. i hate spending cash when i can avoid doing so; 30bucks of vouchers left to cash out before november 30. *feels vaguely upset over not having brought everything out :(

and i more or less fell into utter panic when i saw the heavy rain. in the end i scurried home under my too-tiny umbrella and the poor boots were completely rained on. i hope they dry right :X

Thursday, November 19, 2009

saying no is hard

but on the bright side, this isn't as hard to turn down as other things i may face in the future. but it's really quite horrible. i have this compulsion to shop and i really really really want to buy things. i need to draw the line somewhere though, and i guess i can't have everything even if it pains me to see such a good opportunity slip away. and i just wish someone would take over some of my impulse buys :(

on another bright side, it's still less than the amount of money i've spent on dance, that is if i only count money spent on shoes. everything else added together... i could probably go on holiday with that same amount of money.

i wish i wasn't so obsessed with shoes. life was easier when all i collected was stickers.

Sunday, November 15, 2009

who would have thought

it's things like this that make me believe all over again.

Saturday, November 14, 2009

i want to see sheep too :(

sigh. they saw sheep. in uk.

WAAAAAAAAA. oh wells, better sheep than snape. if they saw him i'm going to legilimens them and steal their memories for storage in my non-existent pensieve.

anyway, violent thoughts aside... dance today was pretty violent too actually. hh was ok, but mtv was downright scary, what with the turns and crawling. crawling i tell you! oh but on second thought, it was less like "tottling baby" and more like "spiderman scaling wall". but horizontally of course.

and gahhhh. i have a massive pimple on my head between my eyebrows. not a very large expanse of space to begin with, it's like adding insult to injury. stupid dingo eyebrows. stupid pimple. it's massive. my mum called it my third eye. what am i supposed to see with it? the ghosts of popped pimples?

honestly, i'd rather never find out.

i guess my life has been filled with lots of knife twisting recently, though at least i didn't have a total breakdown sending them off yesterday. i don't think i'll ever get to go to uk, pity. but... there are worse things to be upset over. hence i shall stop being materialistic/superficial (not really related actually though my mum has been accusing me of that) and... think deep thoughts? apparently the antonym of materialistic/superficial is spiritual/profound. i'm not really sure if i'm ready to handle spiritual but... profound... "the universe is the illusion that sustains all reality"?

zzz can't believe i'm quoting xiaxue. and i swear, i normally don't read her blog/watch her videos cept my sis seems to have a thing for her. (ok eww bad image). but she's kinda funny, once you get over the fact that it's weird seeing an asian face with blonde hair. it just doesn't work. and since i don't have a problem with swearing, yeahhhh. and i'm not one to critique, so... i don't really know what i'm saying anymore. i should just go sleep.

shitxzx i need a growth potion


Thursday, November 12, 2009

"shoes make me happy. i'm superficial. whatever."

at last count it was 19 pairs of shoes. with 2 more coming. ohhhh i'm so dead the moment my mum finds out. then again, i still have the first pair of sneakers i ever bought, and that was almost 7 years ago. (bah i'm sentimental like that) so if i can't let go of the old, will i ever be able to bring in the new without feeling bone wrecking guilt? i guess it's a good thing i'm trying to sell the pairs that i've yet to have worn, meaning that there's still no emotional dependency on them yet.
on another note, me and ying spent an insane 150bucks at topshop yesterday. it hasn't really sunk in yet, but oh. my. god. and i don't regret it one bit. cause after lusting over it for months on end, i finally managed to buy the aztec boots. a little loose, but fits fine with an insole. and it was only 60bucks, compared to the original 180+. and since everything we got was on sale, we saved 260bucks so yes it was worth it.

but of course, now i'm completely broke. which is depressing. cause there was an amazing pair of jeans at f21 today. sigh, this is a sign that i'm going shopping too much. i'd like to blame ying. if she didn't lose her ezlink nor did she need to get her eyes checked (which she didn't do in the end -.-), i would be about 100 dollars less poor right now. but... honestly i'm quite happy that she dragged me out of my bed at insane hours (really, it's not normal to wake up before 1pm during the school hols). so thanks, even though you're not a rich friend but hey you're a nice friend so i guess that's enough.

and don't you dare sell your babies away. (sounds... wrong)

and buy me nice things in uk. or at least take pictures of hot long haired guys. and since you've reminded me, i shall promote ODD! please click the image below to be directed to the best thing you'll ever see in... awhile? i can't actually say in your life, since our next collection may be better :D anyway, yes, do support ying, zinc and i at our soon-to-be-opened blogshop. you can check out the preview now and sign up for our mailing list.

thank you!

random stress reliever.

and somehow i can't believe it's the day before O's and i still haven't started studying.
i'm so doomed.

Saturday, November 07, 2009

i worked my ass off for 4 years and all i got was an empty tube

lots and lots of things to be happy about right now. yesterday was completely awesome doing all sorts of random things during class time and taking pictures and signing in grad mags. graduation ceremony was ok, being exciting but really hot and a little boring and sal was hyperventilating next to me (though that sort of contradicts boring. actually it was kinda scary. ok very scary. poor zinc). anyway the after was awesome. lots of food + donuts + ice cream + taboo. and tanny seems to have lost more hair :/ and i can't believe we got home so late. like we reached eunos at 11.20pm and it would have been midnight or something if we hadn't taken a cab.

i guess it's no surprise i completely couldn't stay awake during chinese supplementary today cause it was so damn early and i was so freaking tired. being sleep deprived should be illegal. they should lock me up and make me sleep. not that that would take a lot of effort from them, whoever them is. and it wouldn't hurt if they gave me a snape doll to hug :)

anyway, came home after chinese and slept all the way till dinner when i got rudely woken up to be informed that my sis has decided to name her hamsters ham and bacon. when i was properly awake, about 2hours later, i told her to rename them to bacon and cheese, which really sounds and tastes much better. and dinner was great because we bbq-ed lots of meat and marshmallows. the meat was good. really good. marshmallows were nice too. yum.

and the ohdoubledamn site is done so if you're bored, check it out and sign up for our mailing list or give me some comments about the layout. preview shots will be uploaded soon. can't wait for our launch :D

time to show some house pride

on a rare stroke of luck, i managed to find that elusive snake ring at diva at t1. so my little piece of slytherin now brings the final count to 13 rings costing a total of $92. which happens to be the price i can get a shit gorgeous pair of wedges for. or feed a man for half a month. but it's also a lot less than a trip to uk, so technically i've spent less than i could have...

ok i feel less guilty now. and considering that i got my ring and my book (the one in the background), i actually feel quite good in fact. pity the weekend's ending. back to school tomorrow to face more chinese and more guilt when i can't finish lao shi's zuo wens.

total brain drain

damnit i need inspiration.
for so many things.
how do i do a lj skin?

i'm sick of seeing this skin on my blog.
i need to sleep more.
looking forward to this is it.
really really looking forward to this is it.
i still have no inspiration.
tick tick.
tick tock.

the thirteen biker gang?

i can't believe we cycled for three hours for no particular reason at all, and from 10 to 12+ too at that. we had nada displacement and all i got out of it was a bloody massive sunburn. i'm red from head down and my collarbones hurt. almost my entire arm is sunburned, except my fingers which is weird but i suppose that's cause they were curled around the handlebars. and i have bloody tanlines now. TANLINES MY GOODNESS. i haven't even been tan in goodness knows how long and now... it's a really disturbing sight.

anyway, after cycling was bowling and that was quite random (what skillzxz??) though i took great pleasure in trying to convince joey that i was a vampire since all the pictures of me turned out totally blurry. and considering how i burn under the sun like nobody's business that might hold some truth ;)

and i would random more about the brief and equally fruitless trip to vivo but i need to go drown myself in aloe vera. and damnit issit supposed to feel so much like coating myself with superglue?

fond memories

sometimes i look at my old skins
and i wonder
how on earth did i do that?!

Thursday, October 22, 2009



and damnit hairdressers are really strong :/ went with ying to the salon near her house yesterday and blew 30bucks on some treatment thing. they rubbed some thing into my hair and made it all foamy and bigggggg. and for the first time in years my hair was blown dry. do you have any idea how weird it is to have a hairdryer blowing at your head when the last time you used it was to dry your socks???? and in the middle of nowhere in some container like cabin too at that.

as in for the socks, and not a salon in the middle of nowhere and yeah. and damnit the spot on my neck still hurts from their firm massage.

anyway went window shopping with ying today at ion and shit bloody fawesome shitzzzzz. I WANT TO BUY MANGO JEANS. i hate not having money. but if all goes well maybe i will have money eventually :/ soon, yes sooooooooooooon. heh heh heh.

and omg i'm in love with meat right now. like thick chunky lumps of meat, more commonly known as steaks to the civilized world. but meat is so fawesome and all i had for dinner today. oh speaking of food, the curry chicken bake rice at delifrance is bloody expensive but all together quite good. and WHY DOESN'T COKE COME IN GLASS BOTTLES ANYMORE? they look so much sexier that way.

and ok mad rant here but ok nvm ranting is good. i'm gonna have to attend a bloody creative writing course and i shall hence practice expressing myself yeah. so... i'm reading dead until dark by charlaine harris right now and i must say its quite good. no idea if it was written before twilight but there are some similarities. like there's a mind reader, except it's the human and not the vamp. but the vamp can levitate, which is coooooool. and apparently shes tastes differently too :/ but at least the story isn't a love story (though they spend too much time fucking each other) and actually has mysteries that involve solving. i hope the story progresses well and doesn't have a horrible ending. oh and the vamp glows, which i guess is less weird than sparkling.

a whole new world

"In school, lots of people bully me because I'm fat."
" In school, we're classified into high class and low class. high class are them who wear expensive, branded stuffs and their dads are mostly rich. low class are geeks. basically, they're copying gossip girls."
"In school, I have no friends. And the people who pretend they are my friend are bitches."
" In school, my 'friends' like to steal my real friends. damn bitch sia!"
" In school, i get teased on because i'm short, and this bastard like to touch my face. Pervert much."
"In school, its hell. let me tell you: HELL. i made a big bloody mistake of going to this freaking secondary school which does not have tamil. and guess wat? all of the bloody people in there are racists. one day i am going to take a gun to school and shoot all of them."
"In school, i'm a very quiet person. I have only a few friends to talk with, the rest i treat them all as transparent, just like how they treat me too."

i just realised how lucky i am. lucky to be in nanyang and lucky to have the friends i have. sometimes i wonder if it's this kind of environment that has turned my sis into the person she is. i wonder if i should start taking her seriously when she talks about bitches and gangs.

why is it so bloody hot

damnit this sucks why must it be so damn hot today. and i cant on my aircon (zinc i can't believe you did) because then it'll just get hotter and hotter and more people will on their aircons and then we'll all just melt into one giant gooey puddle of human innards.

ah shit i really want to on my aircon. and i feel like spending money that i don't have. sigh. i need to find myself a sexy severus fic. just in case i end up all necrophilic again like last night when i was looking for mj posters :X

can't wait for this to be over

damnit damnit damnit why must there be bio tomorrow. if it was on friday then it still wouldn't be too bad. but TOMORROW?!!! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!

(let's not forget the slides and the notes and essays and I CAN'T FIND MY NOTES FROM LAST YEAR AND PREVIOUS BLOCK TESTS. WHERE THE HELL ARE THEY!!)

sigh. oh well. the point is not to be stumped by an immovable rock, but to pretend to be an unstoppable force meeting an immovable rock. you still don't get anywhere, but at least you have super powers :)

it's close to midnight...

ok so actually it isn't, but thriller just started playing and the first line is kinda cool :D and even though i didn't do much revising today, i'm quite happy cause now i'm the proud owner of a mj concert dvd which i am dying to watch but unfortunately can't. i need to stop distracting myself. but that's impossible. if i'm a distraction to myself i can't possibly remove the distraction cause if i remove myself then what's left to do the studying?

ok i'm a bit confused right now. i shall just study what i can study and not do what i don't know how to do. better than studying everything without sleeping and then not be able to finish the paper even though i know how to do the questions. that's just a complete waste of effort. then again, the whole point of studying is not for the exam grades but for the point of learning stuff. but if there weren't exams i wouldn't be studying anyway. so better to study just for the marks then to not study at all right?

either you're wrong or you're right

wow, it's been so long since i last blogged. anyway, chem paper sucked today. and i don't think i'm gonna do well and don't tell me i will cause i know i wont. let's not burn down any more paradises, i just hope to get... 65 - 70%?

and on the way home i was talking to zinc about the furry ones and since i can't remember what i wanted to blog about, i shall post pictures of cute adorable animals :D

see zinc they look like weasels!

and then, of course they grew bigger. and bigger.

and here's the shot of christy trying to fish that i was talking about :D

sigh. i miss being p5 when exams were shorter and homework was easier. and when the dogs were smaller and all together less loud :/

i'm not sure what sucked more today, that i no longer have something to look forward to, or that i fell for a bloody obvious phishing scam.

happy birthday mummy !!

had chili crab for dinner today :D no mantous, but still awesome. then the cake was... funny. the candles were nearly completely gone by the time the cake was cut. but other than that, quite good. mmm :D

oh but on a side note, when i was looking for a lighter to light the candles, i found this pair of really awesome metal chopsticks with cool engravings. i then tried to cast spells at vicky, but after numerous failed stupefys and wingardium leviosas (and one random tarantallegra; why must the spell names be so long ._.) i got kinda demoralised. then my sis called me childish and just to spite her, i tried a levicorpus on vicky and being the awesome dog she is, vicky rolled over and stuck her foot in the air! ( and she looked so kyuteeeeeeeeeee (L) )

and most importantly, i no longer doubt the authenticity of mlias :]

i detest you damsels

muahaha I'm back!'s topic is.. the Damsels in Distress!

ARGH i cannot stand damsels in distresses. Like for example in those mediocre fantasy stories:
The poor thing is usually a royal princess/powerful mage/Captain Universe but somehow therewould be a proverbial wrench in the works, causing her to quite conveniently lose her powers, but never, Heaven forbid, her feminine charms.

Next comes along this strapping young chap, and the almighty evil villain who seeks to rule the world. For some reason or another, the strapping young fool would go, "Ar, you nasty scallywag! I'll tear your head off your shoulders!" So off he goes, dragging along the poor maiden along with him. Surrounding them, of course, would be a Band of Would-be Heroes, which will pale in comparison to the sole might of the protagonist.

So off they go! After some trials and tribulations, in which all escape unscathed, either a) the villian kidnaps the damsel or b) she slumps tragically on the floor due to some magical parasite/fatal disease/H1N1. Either way, the damsel feels compelled, no matter how strong and pro her character is, to warble "save me! save me!" in a more lyrical and poetic way. Then she says "Oh! Why not leave me behind! I am unimportant to our collectuve quest!" Hence, she cleverly guilt-trips the lad, who then feels honour-bound to save her.

Which he does, pretending all the while that it is a difficult and heroic quest to undertake. And after several more damsel in distress situations, he fights the villian, who simply cannot win against his sheer power of true love/desperation/insanity. They then return home and live happily ever after.

The flaws and contradictions in characters never cease to surprise, as do the sheer helplessness of these damsels and amount of poetry spouted in times when they are supposed to be running for their collective lives. Why is it that there are only damsels in distress and never men in mess? It would be an awfully funny story to read. Imagining a man in a woman's situation is always loads funnier than a woman in a man's situation.

you're my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey

everything's gonna be alright! :D

when the shit hits the fan

i think i'm on the verge of a nervous breakdown. or maybe i'm already there. and i don't even know why. though i suppose mrs ting assigning us the project on our ideal school probably triggered it.

thinking about what i would really enjoy only made me realise how far reality is from it. i suppose i can honestly say that i. hate. school. i have nothing against learning or education, but its the means in which it's being carried out that makes me hate it so much. all i feel like doing right is throwing all my textbooks into a bonfire and hop around chanting windows! doors!

and somehow, i'm back to wondering about the point of school. so perhaps the whole point of studying is to get good grades to get a good future doing some non 9-5 job so that we don't spend the later part of our lives doing more or less what we're doing right now. but i still don't see the damn point. the only studying we're doing is memorising and regurgitating. i've written enough reflections to know how bloody moral i need to be to get a good grade which supposedly gives me a brief flash of happiness. damnit a cup of mango ice blended can make me happier.

i need to stop degrading into swearing in every consecutive sentence. but regardless, the studying just never seems to end. we study for this EOY just so that we can study for the next EOY and the next, and the next and it just goes on and on until finally we graduate with some form of respectable degree. i feel like a goddamn hamster on a wheel. and if you do well for something, they'll expect more of you and push you harder and harder. if i can run this fast on the hamster wheel they're just going to keep pushing to see how fast i can go until something snaps and i spend the rest of my life burnt out. i suspect that's what happened already.

i think i used to care more. but now the world can go to hell for all that matters. if some warning siren sounds i'll run out with flags to encourage whatever weapon of mass destruction that's heading our way to just bloody hurry up already. i guess civic responsibility just wasn't meant for me. but if that big toy in the sky would wipe just me off the face of this earth then boy would i be even happier. i have never really been a big fan of dragging innocent bystanders down with me.

actually, i don't even know why i'm freaking out over this or EOYs. i havent even started EOY revision and if chem o is sending me into this much emotional upheaval, i think i'm not cut out for persuing an academic life. i think i want to be a librarian.

and i have no idea what's wrong with me right now though i sincerely apologise for whatever bridges ive burnt along this precarious road of self destruction. i think i'll go stare at the wall for awhile and let my subconscious cry its heart out because i have no idea what it's so upset about. nothing's changed. and i suppose that's cause enough to be sad.

though i suppose depression may be contagious. apparently some girl jumped off a builing in bedok today. nevertheless, i shall just hope whatever self salvation instinct i have left kicks in soon. i hope i'll have a chance to pick up the pieces.
this is what is actually ON my to-do list:
math port
re[dead key]ision
sell phones
crack -lack-erry -or mum
purchase ph[ah keys]use 4 speakers
setup new internet
possi-ly purchase new key-oard.

ouch toothache

my sis just majorly freaked out when she found out that what my maid said was pork was actually beef and that she had actually eaten beef after not doing so for so long. from what i know she's definitely not religious so i'm starting to wonder if maybe she can see the spirit of dead cows and maybe i should stop eating beef too. and now i'm trying to decide which sentence was longer.

on a side note, i think someone used my email to sign up for a viagra newsletter.

i think i just pulled a thought muscle

i think one of the dangers of taking long showers, aside from thoroughly prune-ing myself, is that i end up thinking too much.

and now that i'm slightly less drenched and significantly cleaner, all those deep insightful thoughts seem to have slipped away. who knows where they go to, but i guess it's not somewhere you'll find purple bunnies nibbling on oreos.

and... oh what the heck. i might as well spew all the random wishy washy muses my head cooks up. and on the menu today, would be... people. so i'm obviously not talking about cannibalism here (don't look so shocked) but more on .. well, people. and how they've affected me. and since this isn't like the usual random things i dish out, do try and take it with a pinch of salt.

so... i guess i'll have to hope my ramblings make sense later, seeing as how i can't organise my thoughts on the fly. and i can't do lists too, nor plan stuff, nor any other form of organisational work. which i suppose this person can.

she's really quite awesome, and somewhat inspiring. she's such a nice person, i wonder if sometimes i should try to be more like her. i probably should learn to be as disciplined as her i guess, because then maybe some of my work would get done. and i guess i need a more optimistic outlook in life. i probably need to learn to be more patient too, and i guess she's helped me realize a lot of things.

and i suppose this other person has made realize a lot of things too. though she scares me sometimes; quite an enigma she is. i admire her strong beliefs, and her resourcefulness, and her all around ability to think quickly on the spot. her achievements are quite humbling, and sometimes i wonder if i should be a little more driven.

and then there's another person, who's really lucky in that she knows what she wants out of life. i hope you end up where you want to be, and do send some postcards when you get there. and i guess being cautious can be good, but sometimes taking risks and generally doing something different is good too. maybe i should try tackling life like the way i play bridge, though i probably wont be so lucky as to end up with a royal flush. and i really have to thank you for introducing me to... well something that i really enjoy now. perhaps not too friendly on my rather insubstancial fiances, but nevertheless still something i enjoy.

and then... yet another enigma i suppose. then again, i suppose everyone's an enigma, seeing as how i'm absolute hogwash at reading people. but back to the point. i don't really know what to say. you seem to have found a nice balance all around and you know how to get what you want. i guess this is where i have to learn to assert myself. though i envy how you've had the chance to read so many amazing books. so we've got different tastes in them, as well as in everything else, but we were quite different to start with. i think you've changed me a lot. and believe it or not, you seriously altered the course of my one tiny life when you introduced me to the world of harry potter (don't blame her; i'm sure she meant well at that time). but, it was good. and yes, being obsessive is bad. and... ok so i think i'm still quite obsessive, but at least it's only on fanfiction and not useless things like pet society. and... this is really getting quite long.

and i guess we've all changed. quite a lot, actually. and i think it's time this soul searching stopped. if this gets any sappier i think silas will scoff at me. bah, i love you too. try not to lag so much yeah.

and cookie, amber, angel and kimberly, i'm sorry for feeding you so much. please don't die on me anytime in the near or distant future. and vicky, you're snoring.

Az ich vel zein vi yener, ver vet zein vi ich?
If I would be like someone else, who would be like me?

i'm not sure if i should start roflmao-ing or searching for spoons to dig my eyes out. regardless, this is definitely not one for the faint of heart.

random much

well, such..creative designs you have been bestowed with! Fortunately I'm ineligible for such outbursts of creativity :D

And you, my dear friend, are addicted to fanfiction

this is an abomination

no i'm not into masochism. my sis decided to bestow that upon me.

harder, better, faster, stronger

somehow it just never occurred to me that i spent 8 hours on a 2minutes-long video. then again, it'd probably be less if i were to minus away the time spent downloading codecs, restarting my com, converting video formats, waiting for windows movie maker to hang and close before reopening, etc etc. but looking at the final product, i guess its not too bad and if we win anything with it, then it would definitely have been 8 hours well spent.

and even though i only had 1/2 an hour's worth of sleep yesterday morning, i'm not feeling very sleepy now that i've read a fanfic. i recall coming home and wanting to just collaspe into a century-long hibernation but i somehow feel a lot more rejuvenated now. i suppose fanfic is to me what religion is to... religious people.

i wonder if this is what it's like to have a firm belief to draw strength from :/

i want a photobucket pro account ):

ack. it happened. i never thought it would. but it did. i can't believe it. but now i have to do something i have been putting off for a long time.

and no i'm not talking about selling my sister to aliens. ( especially since she shared cookies with me today [: )

anyway, my bandwidth exceeded D: now there's a giant chunk missing from this skin. i don't really know what to say. the fact that my bandwidth exceeded means my images have been viewed a lot, which i guess should be flattering. but now my skins are all messed up, which is just a downright pain in the ass. and now i have to make yet another photobucket account, just to make sure such a thing doesnt happen again. and i'm out of username ideas, seeing as ive already resorted to using my favourite foot outerwear. (then again maybe it's inner wear, since shoes are outer wear :/)

on the bright side, my room smells like new bags :D

Monday, August 24, 2009


it was the first day of cookie sales for fundraising today and to my utmost surprise, we actually had a crowd. wow. who knew our school loved cookies so much. but i'm really worried about the additional cookies we ordered. there may not be as many repeat buyers, and though we sold out today, we may end up with leftovers for tomorrow. i mean we ordered 280 more for tuesday and wednesday, which would mean that we need at least 140 more people to buy from us tomorrow. that's... really a lot. but i suppose we'll need the extra sales, since our profit margin isn't as high as we'd like but seeing as how people keep accusing us of ripping people off, we don't really have much of a choice.

either way, trying to memorise chinese poems is deathly hard. me and ying ying and i were making a fool (fools?) of ourselves at the waffle place today where we tried to study and the staff ended up laughing at us and commenting and occasionally asking us random questions or answering our noobish questions when we couldn't read the chinese characters in our notes. sigh. i hope i dont mix everything up tomorrow :X

(emperor wang entrusted to the cuckoo his spring passion!)

sigh. i think i shall give up studying. seeing as how i don't even know what subjects we're tested on. and... gah i need to restrain myself. though i suspect i may have been egyptian in some previous lifetime, seeing as how im obsessed with pyramids which i obviously can't own and hence chose to surround myself with insane amounts of pyramid studs. but... that is a rant for another time. i am just too broke right now.

an empty purse makes for a heavy heart

i suddenly really hope i end up in the work experience program; i would really appreciate the pay, no matter how measly.

honestly, it sucks to be unemployed. and i would say it sucks to be a student, but seeing as how there are student offers and prices, there are some plus points to still be studying. regardless, i want to be richhhhhhhhhh. (recalls a similar conversation with zinc)

and... life is too distracting. especially since ying's package is sitting on my table and i'm simply itching to tear it open. i'm not sure why, but some instinctive part of me just likes opening wrapped items, even if the item is wrapped in a plain brown envelope. sigh, it's been years since i received a real wrapped present that i could tear open.

and since i'm not doing work, which is hardly surprising, i should go to sleep -.-

but i don't really want to, since i'm savouring my first night of actually having working lights after goodness how long. sitting in the dark rushing out my mathematics portfolio was simply so depressing i wonder why i havent turned to self-mutilation yet. and i suppose the next thing to look forward to is to being able to use the aircon. sigh, sucks to be me.

actually, im not really in the mood to post.

nevermind, just know that the hijacker's life is sucking really bad.


Saturday, August 15, 2009

it was the patient, cut-flower sound of a man who is waiting to die

so i've finished the name of the wind, again, and very much like the first time, i would kill to have the second book in my hands. unfortunately, nothing can get me something that does not exist. i shall have to make do with reading fanfiction for now.

on a side note, i think my dad is finally going to call in that promise i made in exchange for getting contacts. not that i wasn't expecting him to do so, but honestly, pink golf balls? i have nothing to say.

and despite repeated lookings and bothering of library staff, it seems the library catalog has failed me. i can't seem to find the second book for the black magician series and it is imposible to say how utterly depressed that has left me. but being a person who doesn't buy books, i guess i'm used to waiting for it. and i suppose that is another reason why i prefer to read slowly, since logically speaking, what has been waited for should be slowly savoured and never rushed. and considering how an author probably spends months or years writing a book, the least one could do is dedicate a few days solely to appreciating his or her efforts.

and i suppose this lengthy pointless rant is all an unconscious effort to avoid starting work. honestly, if i put in as much effort in doing work as i currently do in procrastinating, i might actually end up with no work to procrastinate about. and where would the fun be in that?

and my toilet ceiling is leaking at such a constant rate i could probably learn to stay on beat by listening to it go drip drip drip. and unfortunately, there seems to be nothing that can be done about it.

oh and in lieu of all the unnecessary double posting that has been going on, i've gotten a new tagboard. and why now after all this time? well, it just felt good being able to actually do something about a bothersome nuisance for once.

drip drip drip.

money is round, so it rolls away.

damn i want a snape doll too.

kill me now.

teddybear trafficking

i honestly think i've laughed too much today. but patrick rothfuss is seriously as funny as his book is good. i think i may start worshiping him soon. (i hope book two comes out before someone tries to turn me into a canned fangirl)

anyway, i need to stop losing track of all the fantasy serieses (seriess? what the hell is the plural of series!) i'm reading. and bloody hell, every copy of turn coat by jim butcher is either on loan or reserved at the library. HOW HORRIBLY HORRID. and me being unable to afford the 1.55 it costs to reserve a book, i shall wait until i chance upon a copy or harry dresden visits me in a dream (ha like jen's! i honestly wouldnt mind living out the book in my head :D)

and i realised that this blog is kinda dead, but somehow i have nothing much to rant/rave about. i wonder how zinc manages to update so often :/ and i need a new skin. and i need to start borrowing books i want to read before my table ends up buried under scribbled-on hotpink post-its. and i need to do my math portfolio. actually just homework in general would be a good start.

and robotics... is going to kill me. i seriously have no idea what to do at all. like completely clueless. it's a really depressing feeling to know that you're up against so many (300+ teams?) and there's nothing you can do to help yourself because you're already at your wits end and you just don't know what to do. and janice is sick and and joey is in london and we're the only sec 4 team and the only team that actually has the full 5 members. the expectations are so blatantly there that a giant blinking neon sign would be ten times more subtle. and the fact that we're called robotation does not help matters. yes our team is called robotation, i kid you not.

and for the record, i think gravity hates me.

Monday, August 03, 2009




seven is such a magical number :D

Except that today was like the "roasting you alive and poking you with pitchforks" hells and tomorrow is the "suck your brains out and pound you with an anvil" hell. Each unique, but equally painful. And SLOW.


PS I realised that it's actually 6.5 hells. But oh well.

a prince without a happily ever after

"I have spied for you, and lied for you, put myself in mortal danger for you. Everything was supposed to keep Lily Potter's son safe. Now you tell me you have been raising him like a pig for slaughter-"

"But this is touching, Severus," said Dumbledore seriously. "Have you grown to care for the boy after all?"

"For him?" shouted Snape. "Expecto patronum!"

From the tip of his wand burst the silver doe: she landed on the office floor, bounded across the office and soared out of the window. Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears.

"After all this time?"

"Always," said Snape.


so i'm 7 months late, but whattheheck. DUSTFINGER IS SO BLOODY HOT. i need a picture of him in all his topless fire breathing glory :O :O :O :O

and honestly the movie is bloody cool, and it has a happy endingggg :D (L) (L) (L)

and no jen i have not forgotten about snape. and shit, i want to read myself into hogwarts.

Limelight was awesome! :D:D
Kind of. If you don't count that bit about walking home in heels.

Today, I saw this really cute cat sticking his/her/its head out between the window bars. So I took a picture. But now my phone has gone bonkers on me so I can't upload the pic :(

And..I'm gonna have dinner at 9.30 -.- because my brother has decided that he wants to eat nice tasty junk food. So I had to order in. Not him coz he wants to sleep. Bloody hell. Could have just walked to the hawker centre and got myself dinner. But no....


P.S. Kai, I deleted it


dear kai,

thank you for buying limelight tickets and baking cookies and for the pretty rose. (: not forgetting the free advert space the concert had on your blog teehee.

loves forever,

this is not a bike advert

i happened to pass by the two kitties on my way home on friday and just couldn't resist the temptation to take a few shots. i then ended up playing with them for a good 15minutes while people hurried by wondering what the hell i was up to. either way, cute kitties. please don't step on them.

hello there pretty

i think i'm in love with receiving packages in the mail. it's just so exciting to pick up this massive envelope and eagerly tear it apart to behold the prize within.

though i think this isn't a very healthy attraction for my bank account, i can't seem to help myself, particularly with everything being so accessible on the net and homework being so repugnant. it's so easy to just leave a comment, reply an email, then stop by an atm to make payment. even making payment is fun! :O

gee, i really hope this is just a passing phase before my mum sees the balance left in my account and faints.

and singapore's weather should just drop 5degrees.

wear that middle finger proud


i was out with my mum and sis today and at the mrt platform, some guy tried to fine me for drinking water. i've seen people eating and drinking every time i go to an mrt and yet it had to be today of all days. what's more, i only took my bottle out cause my sis wanted water and i didnt want to give her and my mum insisted i did. so i took it out and since it was out, took a small sip and passed it to her. she then proceeded to gulp it down like a mammoth. then some time passed and this mrt staff walked up looking all official and important and asked for my identity. and because it's truly part of the singaporean character to mind everyone's business, a cleaning lady walked up and started shrieking “就是她!就是她在喝水!” while jabbing her broom at me. and because no one likes to miss out on the fun, some other auntie went up and asked, “baby 可以喝水吗?” and proclaimed shock when the guy said no. in the end the guy took down my name and school and somehow he seemed really shocked that i was 1. still schooling and 2. in nanyang. like wtf, stereotypes again. and gee, how i have been disillusioned.

regardless, i came home today and again by some random twist of fate i decided to play pet society even though i've quit for months. and then i got scammed -.- someone up there must really hate me.

and now i'm feeling feverish but i still have to go to school. i need to find myself a greener patch of grass soon.

Great Minds Think Alike


Hmm once upon a Sunday afternoon, I was seriously considering writing another story all about this little city where people choose their dying day. WELL. There's a reason plot bunnies remain plot bunnies and not plot hares or plot wolf-in-sheep's-clothing or stories. But PLOT BUNNIES.

Still, this proves a theory.
Since Kai = Great Mind,
Me = Kai at this particular point,
Hence Me = Great Mind too! At this particular point.

Voila! My status has just been elevated from "[not-so-puny] minion" to "Great by association".
It's not exactly "AWESOME COOL" yet but i'm getting there.

if today was your last day

sometimes i wonder how it feels like to be able to count down to the day of you death. i suppose it'd be like working with a deadline. you'll know when you're running out of time, and you know how to plan your remaining days such that you get everything into order and you die happy.

if you were to die in say, 3months, then your priorities would change so drastically. studies, university, career planning, they wont matter. you finally see the real purpose in life, which is not to slog like a bull now and hope you find happiness later when you're old and gray. i mean, there comes a certain point in time when you're no longer able to run and scream and ride rollercoasters. and when that time comes, all you'll have left to show is awards, certificates and report books.

if you were going to die tomorrow, would you spend your last day studying?

why cant we enjoy life now and study later? what's wrong with starting school when we're 30 and work when we're 40? we spend the prime of our lives sitting at desks and writing reports and occasionally paying attention during lessons.

perhaps some people do want to work; perhaps they have a dream in life and know how to achieve it. well, lucky them. but what happens to the rest of us who just want to be happy?

My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day's a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by
That first step you take is the longest stride

If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
If today was your last day

Against the grain should be a way of life
What's worth the prize is always worth the fight
Every second counts 'cause there's no second try
So live like you'll never live it twice
Don't take the free ride in your own life

Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce of memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you're dreamin' of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day

i can knot cherry stalks

a quest to help joey search for her soul has left me wondering why i need one. ok fine that's not true, but it sounded cool :D what ive really been wondering, ok not wondering but more like thinking, is that being a geper is extremely unfair.

first non-gepers in your generation think of you either as assholes (see retarded geper comic) or as "arrogant nerds and academic snobs who spend large amounts of time studying and have no interests in sports or other non-academic activities" (see wikipedia). so great, just because we passed some test when we were 9 years old we are officially losers.

but because we passed that same test, we are expected to be really successful in life, aka the exact opposite of a loser.

that honestly makes no sense. ok unfair stereotypes aside, the key issue that has me upset is that we are actually supposed to make it big in life. we have subsidies for our school fees and our education is mostly paid for using tax-payers' money (gee, stressful not.) so since so much effort has been poured into us, we now need to make sure we do what's expected of us and contribute back to society by becoming important people like doctors and lawyers. but what if we've (ok maybe just me) have always had a lifelong dream of rearing sheep in a farm? (and ignore the fact that singapore unfortunately has no space for such a thing)

the point is being a geper seriously limits our choices as to what we do with our lives. so if some geper ends up as a random small timer in a a small time office, the poor soul gets ostracized by non-gepers and faces disappointment from parents etc. there's so much pressure on being successful that it probably works against any attempts to be successful. unless you're seriously a really pro person then here's an early congratulations on being successful in life.

and now... i'm confused as to what ive been rambling about. point is, what on earth happens when i don't know what i want to do with my life? then again, seeing as i don't have many choices to start with, i might as well just pick one at random and go along with it.

Mentsch tracht, Gott lacht.

sigh. so much homework and none of it getting done. somehow it never occurred to me that i had to make something of myself. when i was younger i used to dream of just getting a regular 9-5 job, something with no personal commitment, and then spend my after-office hours enjoying life etc. it's really quite sad, since apparently i don't have any dream nor ambition. somehow it seems (or at least in drama serials) that the poor have big dreams and deserve to get them but cant while the rich have the means but don't know what to do with themselves.

then again, who says your dream has to be your job. why can't i just want to have a happy relaxed life. i'd always thought of a job as just a means of providing you with the funds you need to support yourself. that's all. i don't have to gain infinite amounts of happiness doing it, though it would be a great bonus if i did. and since i'm apparently not cut out to do something i thought i might enjoy, then what on earth am i going to do with myself?

Man plans, God laughs.

revenge of the fallen!

watched transformer 2 with zinc chels elsa chrissy sal bea today. ying and jen went to watch ice age three D: but anw, good movie i don't know why it got such bad reviews. sure lots of things blow up, but that's the fun part :D:D

ok that aside, i found out from alicia some time ago that apparently the 'beyond words' blogskin got commented on in that zhi tong che chinese student newspaper. and today she finally found that ancient issue and though i was dying to read it she couldn't scan it in so she kindly translated it for me :D
this give people a very fresh simple and clean feel, but not losing the girly factor(?)!
the skinner here says about her hopes for the holidays and gave everyone an intro on the whole concept
and also told them how to use this skin when met any problems.
that's all
somehow it only just occurred to me that if the people who downloaded my skin had read the descrip, about 100k random users of the internet would have read whatever rubbish i wrote. and so i hurried to check if i said anything, i dno, satanic and lo behold.

what hopes for the holidays?!
"the hols are coming! whoo hoo! hahas, can't wait."
-.- but oh well, at least i had proper punctuation. hmms, intro on the whole concept...
"so yeahs. um the css is quite simple, but i just don't feel up to doing anymore coding *blah blah blah more weird rubbish i probably wrote half delirious* i have no idea why they're so large."
ok i guess that counts.

but oh wait! there was one more para in between!
"the name for this skin is actually the title of one of my favourite harrypotter fanfiction. its a harry and severus one (slash, m&m, gay, whatever you call it) and it's really good.

love is love,baby."
*gasp* i don't believe it. somehow they seem to have ignored the most important part of a skin -- it's inspiration. and really, they completely skipped passed my totally honest opinions on homosexuality.

i wonder why :/ anyway, thanks alicia! :D
