Irony

So bored now.

Trying to make a new blog with customized skin (means I have to familiarize myself with Photoshop on Mac sobsob Y U NO SAME SAME AS PHOTOSHOP ON WINDOWS). But I can't even settle on a decent URL to start a new blog lalalalala.

I am bored to the extent that I have nothing left to clean, because I cleaned EVERYTHING (my papers, my files, my books, my clothes, my shoes, my room etc) the week before already. WOE.

Until I find more inspiration. Goodbye~~~~

It is hard to reflect.

Sometimes it does puzzle me why we 'graduate' before we take our exams :/ that's what happened for O Levels too, right?

Graduation day was last Friday, 14th of October 2011. Means that technically, I'm no longer a 'proper' AJCian, for lack of better description.

Can you believe it?

One moment we're squirming over how to make friends in a new class, the next we're saying goodbye, hugging each other, all foreign-feeling and awkwardness forgotten, perhaps never crossing paths again (except the meet ups to come :3).

I don't even know if I am able to reflect upon these two years in AJ, it was really much too fast. You walk zombie-like through the days as they pass; each individual lesson seemed endless; each lecture dreary; yet near the finishing line, you begin to ponder when it was that you had began and crossed the start in the first place.

PDG 18/10, amidst all the chaos and rojak timetables, is really quite a magical place to be :)



Let's work hard now, before Graduation Night comes.

What I have been up to lately.

It is rather depressing actually, preparing for A Levels.

On one hand, I'm pretty sure my pure math has AT LEAST improved by a grade, yet on the other hand I'm worried SICK about my Biology let's-memorize-some-fourteen-chapters-for-essay-regurgitation progress. I'm soooo worried for my bio essay component.

SINCE WHEN DID I GET SO INSECURE FOR BIOLOGY ANYWAY.
(since I started getting single-digit scores, no thanks to my investment of concentration elsewhere)



Here's an egg mayo recipe to cheer us all up.

SOS

Life sucks because A Levels are about 5, F-I-V-E, freaking weeks away and my studies are in TATTERS. F this madness. I need to save myself.

Hence;
PICTURES TO LOOK AT IN CASE I START TO FEEL SUICIDAL IN THESE COMING WEEKS.

Mint, my Wish Bear!

So while I was slogging my guts away to prepare for the prelim papers (which probably didn't work fml), my effort did not go unnoticed!!!!!!

My mom - my strict, thrifty and no-nonsense mother - bought me...

A CAREBEAR!!! HAHAHAHA.

Not just any Carebear! It is the WISH BEAR!



 Hello. I am the Wish Bear. Look at my starry tummy!!



SUPER IN LOVE WITH IT AHAHAHAHAHA.
Cause I desperately need some wishes to come true right now :\

Anyway I decided to call my Wish Bear MINT cause "Wish Bear" too general already (my Wish Bear ok, of course must be special from the other 1029382137480 Wish Bears out there). And Mint is such a cute name!! The Wish Bear has a really light green fur colour, and it just looked all edible and yummy and lovely, like Mint!!!!!!!!! :D

(Um. I actually don't like mint very much, but the name was pretty cute.)




.
.
.

Can Mint really grant wishes?

Since I'm pretty hungry now (wherefore art thou mother), I think I shall give it a try...



 Can you really grant me my wishes?



 I wish for some dinner........



Huge picture of Mint to scare the living daylights out of you........

Mint decides to work some magic~

OMMMMMMmmmmmmmMMMMMmMMmMMmmmmmMMMMMMM~~

Okay.
Just kidding..

I'm starving like mad and I'm going crazy.

Friday, September 16, 2011

Listen to me.

DILIGENCE. DETERMINATION. DISCIPLINE. FOCUS.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.

I am hungry (so why am I posting about motivation).

So for the past few days, starting from 12/9 Monday, I've been taking my A Level Prelim Papers.

:\

Yah, I'll always have that face when I think about prelims lol, it was (technically it's "is" because I still have some papers next week) a bad experience. But I think I am at least slightly more prepared than I was for my midyears (keyword: THINK) and that's the important part right? Improving.

There still is a huge amount of stress through... The pressure is really building with each paper we take...
and my hungry belly is not helping me ease that unnerving feeling right now.

But, given this rare 2-day 'break' we have (in which we must, of course, mug), I think I shouldn't be wasting it by repeatedly thinking about how this shit I'm in is getting shittier by the minute (excuse the sharpness), and instead channel all the negative chi into being all wise and knowledgeable (nodding my head and stroking my imaginary beard) and going, "yes, the time has come for me to showcase my inner strength and carry on; the time has come for me to be the resilient strong woman that my teachers have tried very hard to mould me into; the time has come for me to stand on my own and defeat my demons........." *distant wind blows, chilly chilly~~*





.
.
Alternatively, I have found an easier way to motivate myself!

FREEDOM IN A FEW MONTHS TIME, CANNOT GIVE UP NOW GO GO GO GO GO GO!
Makes more sense yah? FOR FREEDOM!!!!! </madness>






To make this post more interesting, here are two photos! YAY! (technically speaking, there are eight)


 HERE IS A HAPPY GIRL!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D


And here is a girl taking her A Level's in 1month+'s time

Almost.

This time next week, I will continue to mug myself insane.

One more month.

..

I am sad.. I want hugs..

You know that empty feeling you get sometimes?

I feel sad today. It's been a bad day.

I need to learn from the old me, being more dependent upon myself and taking no nonsense from anyone. Fighting your own battles and emerging stronger and more self-reliant after each one. Scarred, yes. Maybe even tired. But at least you'd learn to fly with your own two wings, indebted to nothing and no one.


That'd be good right?

You wouldn't need to invest your emotions anywhere else.

:'(

I feel so useless everywhere..

Friday, September 9, 2011

I hate you I hate you I hate you. I will remember all that you said and did. I hate you. I will remember it all.

Wednesday, September 7, 2011

The countdown begins.

4 more days..
Let's be productive.

Tuesday, September 6, 2011

Please, believe.

Everything's gonna be alright...

For Teachers' Day 2011...

Danced Roly Poly by T-ara.

It was a fun experience: getting to know the juniors, being comfortable enough to nag at them, getting nagged at, creating a group on FaceBook and subsequently fussing over what to wear together..

Most memorable of all was perhaps waiting for our turn to perform:
Your chest starts to constrict, your breathing begins to betray you. Hands numb, heart pounding... but when you actually step past the backstage curtains, you really feel that much better.

I'm a bit too tired now to actually blog, but I hope I won't forget that feeling.
The overwhelming tension was driving us to the brink of insanity, but somehow, I think we still did good. :)

Belated

Celebrated my & Tsun hao's belated birthdays yesterday at Vii's house!




They planned a BBQ but because my voice was so screwed I had very little BBQed food and settled for noodles *good girl*

Unfortunately I talked so much my throat began to hurt anyway xD

But it was fun! I really enjoyed their company. Miss my GESS friends, and the carefree, happy and *slightly* easier times during secondary school.. :) glad I got to spend my sec sch life with these lot of friends I have. Can't imagine life otherwise!! Haha!

Vii got me a cute Starbucks thermoplastic customizable tumbler!!! She filled it with lots of b&w photo printouts (ah~ memories..) and a coloured Polaroid of her and I at her 16th birthday party!!! Love it max! I added stickers xD
Val got a cute Dale cushion and a Chip and Dale kiddy water bottle! HAHAHAHA! Got to hand it to her!!! Dale cushion is mega adorable, it's got a fat head and a small body HEHE (ref to picture above :B)

18th birthday's just passed and gone though.. At 8, I couldn't read the clock and cried because my teacher scolded me for erasing the board (i'm still sore about it).

Wonder what life will be like when I'm 28... 38... 48....

:O




I'M LEGAL TO DRIVE!!!!!

Cinyi's belated celebration + Picture-heavy!!

1st July 2011: END OF MIDYEARS AND TT GIRLS MEETUP/CINYI'S CELEBRATION!!!

Because 30 June was Cinyi's 18th Birthday!!!!

Gosh do I miss these girls :3

Met the girls at 313@Somerset! I was very late, and treated Cinyi to tako while the other four ran to City Hall to buy her present. Why you ask?

According to Jac, Cinyi has been lusting after a guitar ! HEHEHE. Being major awesome as we are, we decided to get her one!!

Unfortunately, we didn't buy it until the day itself xD

When they arrived at Somerset, they wanted to surprise Cinyi! And to do that, I had to be with them! But I was already with Cinyi, HOW TO SURPRISE?? Jac called me and made me say gibberish like "Oh homework hand in on Monday ah?" and "YAH WHY THE TEACHERS SO MAD" and "Ok see you on Monday" (so that Cinyi won't get suspicious) even though she was frantically giving me instructions to meet them at Each A Cup, and there was no school on Monday xDD

HERE IS ME, LYING TO CINYI AND TALKING ABOUT "SCHOOL" OVER THE PHONE AS SHE SNAPS A PIC OF ME! xD

And guess what!



I MANAGED TO SNEAK AWAY TO THE TOILET!
Sweet victory. 


But I didn't know where Each A Cup was and dashed up two flights of escalators, afraid that Cinyi will see me sneaking out of the toilet!

Then Jac called and said that Each A Cup was at the same level as the place I was at originally, fml. HAHA! So I ran back down, and saw the four of them approaching Cinyi from behind!! She saw me running towards her and gave me a sulky look (running up two flights of escalators = more than 5 mins) but then! I covered her eyes and Charis plopped the guitar on her lap!! :D :D

But she was too shocked to register it as her's, and ran away from us ._.

Approaching to kill. HAHAH look at Charis! :D

~


We went to nom at GREENHOUSE CAFE!
It was cute, all flowery and quaint, nice lightning and SWING SEATS!!! But the food, meh. Peishan had a club sandwich, as usual. Jac had fish and chips which were HUGE! Cindy and Charis, I can't rmb and Cinyi had cheese-baked something. Gosh, my memory. I'm getting old.

I had spicy meatball pasta! The pasta was good. Well-cooked, tossed in tomato sauce, fragrant and yummy! The meatballs, not so much.

Cheryl, Peishan and Jac ordering! Ignore my retarded hair/face. JAC IS SO ADORABLE IN THIS PHOTO! :D

MEATBALLS AND I! <3

We then proceeded to take a shitload of pictures with Cinyi's DSLR xD
ALL ON FACEBOOK, WAY TOO LAZY TO POST EVERYTHING! :D Save a select few.



Here is Cinyi 'unwrapping' her guitar!!!
She looks like a tikopeh peeking underneath girls' skirts xD

Happy with her birthday loot!! YAY! <3

Major happy with this photo :D FAMILY SHOT! All pretty and glowy! Loveloveloveee.

PRETTY JUICES ALL LINED UP IN A ROW!! We ordered three and the Aunt gave us three on the house! MAD NICE! :D :D

~


More photos, then we head to Orchard Central! Cinyi recommended the sky garden... but it was all dark and spooky. So we just walked around and tried to finish our 20 polaroid films, as per Cinyi's request! :)

Visual representation:

Going up to the sky garden!
You can't tell, but I was crossing a leg over the other and standing Buddha style, HEHE :3

@ Sky Garden! Cinyi trying out her new guitar!! :D



We stumbled upon a very unique shop at Orchard Central! Editor's Market! Very nice concept, very unique! The accessories were laid out on a table, as though someone had just taken them off and threw them (very artistically, mind you) around! Some of the clothes were laid out on hangers on walls, and draped across chairs!! And the shop was huge. I wonder how much it cost them to rent the place from OC. (then again the prices in there are a good estimate)

Leaning like a model xD HAHAHA *bricked* See the accessories and apparel! So nicely designed!

So chic, the backdoor xD (yes this is the backdoor) Look at how huge the place is! Totally inspired by its interior!!

Hello Polaroids! <3 We had a sort-of "heartattack" game where on the count of 3, we just smacked the polaroid we wanted to take home xD I got the one on the extreme middle-right and also the one in the bottom-centre (of Cinyi and I)!!

I edited this on an app called "Instax"! Pretty isn't it! :D I love my tt girls!!!! <3
Charis, Cindy, Jacquelyn, Peishan, Cinyi and myself! :3


Happy belated birthday my BFF! <3

I hope we made you happy on 1 July !
YOU ARE VERY VERY SPECIAL TO ALL OF US CINYI! :))
To show you just how special you are, here's a special song for you!

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you! HAPPY (BELATED) BIRTHDAY DEAR CINYI~! Happy birthday to you!!!!!
*ends with a warm hug*

May you be funny, caring, pretty and hardworking as ever! :)
I'll be here whenever you need me! :D
Thank you for being such a wonderful and close friend of mine since we sat next to each other in P3. 

LOVING YOU ALWAYS!!!

With love,
Cheryl.

Logic Fail

I remember I once went, "Goh Chok Tong is good, but Tin Pei Ling is horrible!! If I were in Marine Parade, I'll totally vote for Nicole Seah!"

And a lot of other people felt that way too.


But Xiaxue raised a point, about Nicole being the strongest candidate while TPL was the weakest.
In fact, Nicole has this guy called Abdul Salim on her team, and after reading his blog posts and Facebook wall, I think he is EXCEPTIONALLY INCAPABLE.

Not only is his grammar in tatters (which is nothing big), his sarcasm is so thinly-veiled and so disgusting, I feel like I'm reading a snotty-nosed kid whine about how his bar of chocolate is too frigging small. IT INFURIATES ME TO NO END!!!!!!!!!!!!

An extract from his shudder-inducing blog:

PM Lee makes Singapore and Singaporeans proud! He gets to earn such big money while there is still the homeless, the beggars and the needys out there on the streets of Singapore. He gets to earn such big money when our poor is only receiving about $370 per month from the governtment. He gets to earn such big money when people are being retrenched, facing financial difficulties and having their pay cut! 

Here here! He gets to earn such big money as he brings Singapore's GDP to an all time high! He gets to earn such big money as he gets investors from all over the world flocking to the smallest nation in Southeast Asia!!!


Pfft. Please. Saying our PM gets to earn big money while the poor are still helplessly wallowing in poverty is illogical, irrational, and insulting to both PM Lee and the low-income Singaporeans. Trying to be inspirational and ride on the people's anger right? As usual, as usual. *shakes head.

Looks like he is insinuating that our PM should give his income to the poor. Correct right? Since he so brilliantly linked our PM's income and the poor's earnings so easily. Eh, people got the back-breaking task of ensuring a tiny country prospers ok. Our PM earning a lot of money (and I agree, it is a lot) has absolutely NOTHING to do with the poor being poor, nor of them receiving too little help. You want the PM to donate? Easy for you to ask others to donate, have you been donating recently?


Nicole spoke of how PAP's candidates "cannot even see the root of the problem". I'd like to borrow her words a little and wonder why this candidate, this Abdul Salim, who is running to GOVERN THE COUNTRY for the next five years, is not even bothering to look for the root for the problem!


I think it is a pity that PAP put Tin Pei Ling in Goh Chok Tong's GRC team when she apparently isn't ready.
I think it is a pity that NSP put Abdul Salim in Nicole Seah's GRC team when he seems so immature and is lacking in everything from credentials to experience to good ideas.


I know the poor should receive more aid from the government. And of course I hope it happens!! I also don't know who and what Abdul Salim is like. Apparently he is a friendly guy, which is definitely good. But by being so painfully horrible at sarcasm and yet still using it excessively, and by showing us that he has no unique and good solutions to offer, he just doesn't give strike me as one who is able to lead well.


Here is one who could do with taking a leaf out of Nicole's book.

Okay I feel better now.

General Musings (ON SCHOOL LIFE AGAIN. BAH!)

E-learning was pretty good actually. I felt like I actually managed to absorb a great quantity of maths over a single lesson. This I haven't been able to do since graduating from Secondary School.. hence my thrill with today's (or yesterday's) E-learning :)

I still haven't managed to finish ALL the homework I wanted to though :\
What is with homework lists and ensuring that you'll never finish them within your own stipulated deadline? Want to get ahead also cannot!! #dontactlikeyounever !!11!!1

Other than that frustrating fact which has been bugging me since forever, I think everything else is... okay. Been falling asleep less in lectures and tutorials, and actually having enough tutorial material to last the day...

Although those are the basic expectations of a JC1......




GOTTA WORK HARD

Holidays

are coming to an end ._.

ALREADY!! D:


I originally planned to do some majorrr mugging to avoid a repeat my sister's unfortunate A level fall from grace but now.. :/

I think as consolation, I will settle for believing that I had planned to rest and recharge my thoroughly fatigued mind before term begins again. (Somebody put it on repeat please. I need awhile to delude myself out of this guilt trap I'm in right now.)

Weekends left!

Pray I be productive FOR ONCE.

Okay bye.
And may Japan see an even brighter tomorrow :')

For Arcadias! FOR DRACO! :D

AJC Orientation 2011!
3 whole days of madness and excitement! It was a BLAST! OMG.





The JC1s went from "WTF I want to transfer to XYZ JC" during Matriculation to "A! J! C! A! J! C! WOOH! WOOOOOOH!!" during Orientation! Just goes to show how awesome we are xD
HAHA. Nono, just goes to show how awesome this year's batch of J1s are!!

Our little DRACONIANS especially! They won BEST CHEER on their own! Best Cheer = BEST FAMILY! It was the most touching moment EVER because they did the SUPER LONG SUPER AWESOME Draco cheer all by themselves, WITHOUT THEIR OGLs! I think it was the first time they did it on their own.

They did Draco/Jaguar SOOO PROUD!
http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=501407487895&comments

And even when DracOGLs messed up our OGL Dance ending, OUR DRACONIANS STOOD UP IMMEDIATELY DID THE "GIVE ME ONE MORE" SILLY JIGGLE FOR US!! T______T
HAPPY TTM! GONNA CRY ALREADY!
http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=501425722895&comments

Evidence of them doing "give me one more"! :D:D
http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=10150089878137514


Even though we didn't manage to be called the "Best Alliance, no matter how much we thought we should have won, I think it is already exhilarating that Draco managed to come out as 1st runner up :D
What made me even more happy was that when Auxo was announced the winner of "Best Alliance", Draco wholeheartedly clapped and cheered for them! SO HAPPY!

Draco, you are the pride and joy of all the DracOGLs, and the Jaguar councillors. In fact, I think everyone was proud that the entire AJC J1 cohort 2011 was so AWESOMEXZXX! :D


I'm chionging homework now.. lagging behind studies.. and I lost my voice, got a sore throat, and my nose is dribbling everywhere.

BUT ALL AWESOME THINGS come with a price, and AJC Orientation 2011 - ARCADIAS was a priceless and beyond amazing experience :)


We have won the war! We have won the war! We have won the war! One more time!!
