Bad Idea
Wednesday, August 31, 2005

It's always a bad idea to put a study area in the bedroom.


Why?


Because everytime you want to start work, your bed just seems to be calling out your name.


*speaks to self* astO, you mustn't sleep for the next 2 days. There's still p2, entec and masa to finish. You can do it.


Kick me again.


I'm so going to kick back and relax after this week.


Ok, after when I write my reports for the past events DSC has done.


Then it's bowling time with Shan, Justin, Adree and Joel.


Anyone else wanna come along?

Can't Breathe Easy.
Wednesday, August 24, 2005

Shoots.


It has come out now.


Argh, and to think, I thought it wasn't clear.


But thanks to the one for telling me.


No class today, but I got to go back and get my drafting bag and t-square.


Should have brought it home yesterday.


Roll off was terrible for me yesterday.


First 2 games, I didn't even hit a pocket shot or close frames.


Was on the verge of crying because there's so much clouding my mind right now.


But thanks to Uncle Sam, Andy and Lionel.


Last game was much better after they helped me make adjustments.


Thank you.


And to Steph, thanks for listening to me when I was ranting and raving. Very appreciative to have a close friend like you where I'm able to share things freely. = ) Love ya loads loads... heheheh

Life and all it's rubbish
Tuesday, August 23, 2005

No classes today.


Yet I'm in school.


Wanted to get some work for p2 done.


But so far, only successful in slacking.


For the past 3 hours.


Reached home yesterday around 9.30.


And slept at 10.30 till this morning.


Accompanied Angeline to Mustafa to get te bag that she wanted.


And I saw this Adidas shoulder bag that I liked.


$45. Any kind sponsors will to buy for me?


Might post a picture if I can find it.


After Mustafa, we walked to Bugis to have dinner before proceeding home.


What a breath of fresh air it was.


Finally being able to go out and walk around.


Was starting to feel like a cooped up animal because all I was doing was school work and shopping for art materials when I needed to.


What a life I have. Sweet eh?


Angeline is such a nice pal to hang out with.


Hehe, the many things we were chatting about...


Hahha... Fun!


Sweet!

Thursdayyyy
Thursday, August 18, 2005

Assessment results for p2 today is out.


Marginal pass again.


My GPA is officially going to go down kill.


And that direct admission TDS students get when they graduate with a GPA of 3?


I can kiss it goodbye.


Currently only at 2.77.


Either I shape up or ship out.


Staggered assessment for p2 the next 2 weeks.


Every Monday and Thursday there's a pin up.


Sighhh... Endless nights of no rest.


Yikes!


Surely to die...


Pretty tired right now.


Submission for Digital Essentials is over!


Hallelujah.


I can rest for at least a day before commencing on my p2.


I seriously the projects were designed to drive design school students crazy.

Bowling!
Sunday, August 14, 2005






















Today's training went on well.


I still have to bend my knees when sliding.


Feel wobbly all the time.


Footwork's getting better, though when I try to keep my power step small, I compromise on my swing.


Like I don't let it swing naturally.


And when I let it swing naturally, my power step is the same length as my 2nd step.


Bowled one game towards the end of training.


163! Yahooooo...


But I missed all my pin 9 and 10 single spares!


Oh well, work harder.


Maybe I should train with the guys, since I only bowl when I have trainings and roll offs.


Got teased so much during training by She Na and Vickie.


Kept saying I'm very cute, bimbotic (well, the brain part of it anyway...), want to pinch my cheeks...


Haha, what is this world coming to?!


Hmm...


Anyway, celebrated Charlene's birthday today.


Promised a shot of the cake, so there it is.


Chocolate Truffle, sinful of course.


It's pure chocolate fudge!


Went off after training with Charlene to eat at Parkway.


Boon came later to get me and her, and went on to TM.


5 of us went to watch a movie.


Me, Shaozong, Angeline, James and Donald.


Stealth is nice! I like!


After that, went to Safra to get something before Shaozong drove me home.


Thanks mate.


Sigh, still got my model and a detailed layout plan to do.


Better start soon and stop PROCRASTINATING!!!

Another day of shoots
Tuesday, August 09, 2005















This is the shirt I bought.


It's so cute lar...


Hahaa...


Went to town with Dominic today.


He had to take National Day as his BaPho project so I went along.


Managed to take a few shots.


Will upload it onto Deviant Art.


He met his friend later on and I left.


Cause he wanted to get into the restricted areas and I didn't wanna to go in illegaly (meaning without a pass).


So yup.


He say it's like ''pung sei-ing'' me.


In a way lar.


But I don't want to get caught or anything.


Hahaha...


When I was at the Esplanade, some fella came up to me and said, ''Excuse me ah, are you from TP?''


I was like, ''What the hell?''


Then I looked up and realised that it was Nicholas, my bowling captain.


Very funny hor... -_-|||


Lame...


Might blog later, I'll see how...


I want to bowl!!!

Got my shirt...
Monday, August 08, 2005

Cleared up Pivia with Dom and Siyuan (thank you ''fwen'').


Still not done, going back either on Wednesday or Thursday (oh yeah, can't, my bowler friends are bowling... I want to support them!)


Threw away 2 thrash bag full of rubbish and a lot of broken cardboards.


Wonders how long it hasn't been cleaned up.


I got my shirt.


I'll post a picture when my batteries are charged.


It's so cute, I think I'll wear it during training this week.


Hahaha... and be laughed at.


Siyuan ate Oreo cereal, now I'm craving for it.


With milk of course.


Watched CNA last night.


Adrian, your interview was fine. You looked fine. No worries there.


Jason, you too looked alright. No biggies.


Wei Shan, you're included to. Brilliant and I know what you were talking about.


Good job all around! My mates are popular people. hahaa


Poor Justin, almost got thrown into the canal.


Tomorrow, shooting with my gal pal, Dominic...


Hahah, kidding. He's not a girl...


Sorry my nephew...

I don't believe it
Sunday, August 07, 2005

Seriously, I don't know what's going on financially with my family.


I'm paying for my own computer and I get like what, $25 a week.


I need to pay for something tomorrow and I asked my dad for my allowance.


He tells me he has nothing.


So it becomes my fault?


Who bowls so much a week? Who buys 4D and all that rubbish?


In theory, $25 a week is enough.


In practical life? No comments.


It's getting on my nerves.


My brothers get more than I do.


And everything is paid for, for them.


Ok, not say it doesn't apply to me.


I? Even one shirt I want to buy, I have to pay for myself.


I don't know what to say...


Really...


So many things that are clouding my mind now.


I feel like I'm going to burst.


Literally...


I'm sick, yet none of my family cares.


*Speechless*


Seems the only times I enjoy myself are during trainings and hanging out with my friends.


Let's me escape reality for awhile.

Very bad cough.

Not Well
Friday, August 05, 2005

Skipped Leadership Training Camp.


Not feeling well.


Throat's bad and I'm starting to sneeze.


Very tired as well.


Trying to find games to play...


Mum's not in a good mood.


Don't know why...


I don't like it when she comes home black faced.


Like as if the whole world offended her.


*shakes head* Hope she doesn't find fault with me.


Ok, I better rest...

Why do I even care?

I should really stop bothering about what people are saying.


I get scared when I hear from friends that people are talking and speculating about something.


Because, in the first place, there's nothing to begin with.


It's just purely helping a friend with no hidden agenda.


Period.


P.S: Only a few of you would know what I'm talking about.

Training today.
Wednesday, August 03, 2005

I stayed over at Jinghui's last night.


Supposed to be talking, in the end I fell asleep.


Ahahha... Lazy me.


Woke up at 11.30 am (!!) then went home.


Slacked for a bit before I went out.


Came home again and waited for a ride to training.


Bowl like crap lar..


120, 104, 140++


Can't remember, was bowling so bad I decided to use the guard again...


Then later, went to Uncle Sam's with Nick and Boon.


I stayed in the shop and read my book (I Kissed Dating Goodbye, by Joshua Harris) while they all bowled till quarter to 12.


After that, dropped Nick back at Leisure before Boon drove me home.


Thanks a lot mate, I really do appreciate it...


So yeap, just reached home not toooo long ago.


Ok, I gotta go and get my chair thingy done for Material Studies.


Which I am so lazy to do...

Change of Tagboard
Monday, August 01, 2005

I've changed my tagboard.


The one hosted by tagboard.com is not working.


Training today was good.


That's the good part.


It was fun, really...


Hehehehe...


Then the bad part.


My aunt and godma have both gone back to New Zealand.


Why can't I go?


Sob Sob.


But then again, if I went, I wouldn't be with friends I so enjoy being with.


And there's my training too which I will totally miss.


Can't wait for tomorrow!


Going to stay at my bestie's house!


Haven't managed to since orientation ended...


Hahahah...


Loads of girl talk!
