Fun fun fun in the sun! (metaphorically speaking, of course)

Today was a wonderful day. Haha. It's not because it's the end of the week (well, part of it is because of that, but that's not the point), but because today's the day when the girls get together. But in the end, only Ti, Eunice, Amanda and I went. Huihui was meeting her boyfriend so she couldn't make it, and Cherie has a cold. Too bad. Their loss, our gain. Because we went to Pizza Hut to eat. Hee. We all had the sudden craving for pizza when we were about to leave the school (Amanda came down to school specially to meet us. Yay).

Yep. This is the "cafe". Food sucks here.

Anyway, we went to the Pizza Hut at Lucky Plaza. That place is bloody hard to find, okay?! Because, according to Ti, it was outside a toilet. What a location. We ended up hunting for it. But well, we found it before we started shrivelling up from the lack of food. Guess what?! There were 2 entrances/exits. There is one on the end facing the toilet, and another behind the lift's pillar. That explains why we didn't see it when we walked past, as we definitely remembered all the shops outside the "hidden" end.

(Got this pic from Amanda's blog.)

The food was just too much. We ordered the Family Meal, and got "upgrades" for the pizzas. Cheese stuffed crust for the Hawaiian and sausage stuffed crust for the curry chicken lovers. LOL. That was an addition of $8, mind you. Just for the kind information, do not order the sausage stuffed crust, please. It's not very nice, unless you just simply love sausage and are willing to pay an extra $4 for a very long sausage in your pizza.

The food was great (except for the sausage), but we couldn't possibly finish it. 4 girls eating two personal pan pizzas is crazy. Lots of water was needed to wash the food down my throat. I just simply love chatting with the girls. So much to talk about!!! Haha. Naturally, we were VERY bloated and poorer by $16 each when we left Pizza Hut.

Walked to Wheelock (one or two "L"s?) Place to ease off the bloatedness. Haha. Poor us. Strolled into Border's, and looked through the books and looked for new books. Too bad. Couldn't find "The Mediator, Twilight" by Meg Cabot (This book is NOTHING like "The Princess Diaries". The tone and storyline is totally different). We decided to explore the upper levels of Wheelock Place, and went a-walking. Haha. We saw a very fast moving miniature Ferris Wheel, carrying very expensive pens. Hmmm. Saw the "World's smallest pencil" in the window of the very same shop. Hee. Fun fun fun.

Strolled around while waiting for Amanda's mum to come pick her up, and we found a quaint little shop. It's a paper shop of some sort, and had very interesting things inside. Haha. There were notepapers in the form of shoes, dresses, etc. There were many many other things that will definitely catch your eye. Haha. Something did catch my eye, and before we knew it, we were poring over the basket which contained loads of sticker thingys which were in the form of countries (traditional clothes, flower, symbol), sports (swimming, tennis, karate) and other things (bikinis, baby clothes, Disney Princesses). Ti, Eunice and I bought the Japan stickers. Very very nice!!! It had a kimono, clogs, sushi, sakura flowers, Japan's flag and a paper swan. Haha. It looks very small and cost quite abit. I guess because the design was quite intricate and it was quite miniature. Haha.

Me, Eunice and Ti pasting the stuff on our lappies at one of the tables in Wheelock Place. Nice tables they've got. Marble. *Wheet*

We decided to paste them on our lappies. Now it's already pasted, and guess what? I can't remove my sushi!!! Hahaha~ I think it looks nice, but wonder where I can put the flag and the crane. Hmmm. Want to see it?

From the view of my lappie. It's very dark, I think it's because of my room.

Reached home tired and dirty with all the dirt and grime of the city. Had to drag myself to go and bathe, then did my RJ. How fast a week goes by. It's already the end of the 2nd week of school!

P.S: I've got 4Bs and 1C for last week's modules. Hmmm. Interesting. Let's see if I can get all Bs or manybe even an A this week.

Nitez. (I'm going to sleep with my book "Lost and Found" by Jane Sigaloff.)

Hamlet


Hamlet!

Well people, this was my orientation group. Haha. Nice picture right?

From left to right...
Me, Ti, Jermaine, Amanda, Eunice, Nicholas, Carney, Alex, Melissa and Cherie.

The picture's not very clear though... When I reduced the size, the thing started blurring. UGH. Whatever. Can't wait for Friday to come!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMANDAS!!!

Hahaha. Have a very happy day!!!

*UPDATE*
13th Speech and Prize Giving Day.

Manda's sitting behind me now. Hahaha. Reading Zettai Kareshi. ERM... Okay. Now for my precious update. Haha.

Anyway, about yesterday. School was well, not very fun. I think it's because of the module. I totally didn't get what we were supposed to do, and I didn't do anything. Ugh. I'm so going to fail today's module.

It was Bishan Park Sec's 13th Annual Speech and Prize Giving Day. We (Eunice, Ti and I) were trying to decide for the whole school day whether or not we want to go back. Haha. Eunice got 1st in Emaths. Too bad, Ti and I got NOTHING. Decided to go in the end. Took 132 bus, and thankfully, we didn't meet the weirdo. Called Shan up to get her to join us, but she didn't want to because she said she'd be the only one wearing school uniform, and it would be weird. Haha. Not can do for me. Managed to get her to come out to the busstop at Thomson Plaza. We got off to, just to meet her. Haha. Great friends we are.

On the journey back to BPS, it was really very fun, since it has been ages since I've taken that route. I miss taking a bus from Thomson Plaza to school, or anywhere along that route.

*Sigh*

Oh how I miss BPS, and all the good and the bad things that came with it. Hee. The fond memories of yesteryear (golly-gee me, I sound so old).

The ceremony was boring. But I managed to and catch a few teachers here and there, chatted nonsensically to them, I think. Haha. Saw Peterson. NIGHTMARE of all nightmares. *shivers* Stupid git. After watching Lav, Eunice and Joany get their prizes, we decided to give Veronica a little bit face, and thus sat through her speech. The speech was quite good, most probably edited by one of the many teachers or something. Not that I don't think she could have written the whole lot by herself, but... Nevermind. Don't start scolding me or try defending her. You wouldn't like what you'll hear. I'm just jealous. *bleh* Happy with my answer? I do not care.

The whole lot of us (Me, Ti, Shan, Eunice, Joany, Chui Mun, Terence and Wilmer) went to J8 (Oh how I miss that place that holds fond memories!) for dinner. We split the group into 1/2 (Me, Ti, Shan, Eunice and Joany, Chui Mun, Terence and Wilmer) because there were not enough seats and McDonald's has wireless. Shan took hostage of Terence's lappie (Acer), and it looked like a giant among all the smaller Fujitsu ones we had. Haha. =P Shan found a very funny picture of Terence in his lappie and showed all of us (oops! :X) While eating we had to close the lappies and thus, Shan couldn't log in after that because she didn't know the password. Haha. Guess what she did? She called Terence and told him that she dropped the lappie and the battery fell out, making him rush over. :X Haha. All she wanted was his password.

Shan and Ti left for home and I was about to go back with Eunice (by MRT) when we spotted Lav and Manda (I couldn't get throught to Lav's phone before I left BPS, and Manda didn't want to leave that early, so we left without them) outside the MRT station. Chatted for awhile, then Eunice left because she wanted to get home. I decided to join Lav and Manda to catch up on stuff and we ended up roaming around J8 till 9.45pm. I was way late for dinner at home (Grandma kept some food for me).

Rushed home, gobbled down the pig's trotters (one of my favourite foods) and quickly showered and completed my RJ. Mad rush I should say. Haha. But it was fun, very fun. Super nostalgic. Heh.

P.S: I just realized that I haven't posted this until now (26th April 2005, 10.29pm), but it was because I kept putting off finishing this entry. There were just too many things to blog about. This entry was also saved as a draft, so I almost totally forgot about it. Sorry.

It's only mid-week...

I can't wait for the week to end. It's not that I do not like school. On the contarary, I love school. All I can say is that I'm still not very used to the system and I'm still used to sleeping late and waking late. Now I sleep late but wake up early (that explains that yellow-green circles around my eyes, Manda). I still can't make myself sleep early. Maybe it's because I have to finish up my RJs. *sigh* The only thing I dislike about school is doing RJs. I always have nothing to write about. My RJs always feel as though they're a third of the length of Eunice's RJs (she writes loads, but not as much as Huihui. Definitely.).

I need help doing my RJs.

Who wants to volunteer?

By the way, on the way home, in bus 132, Eunice, Ti and I met this weird guy. Very creepy. Didn't know what was with him, just that we (Eunice and I) were freaked out by him. No more elaboration, just that even though the bus was crowded (that guy was at the front, and we were there too), we managed to squeeze all the way to the back of the bus by the second stop. *shivers*

Something interesting happened today. I saw Lavanya on the bus!!! Wahahaha. Singapore is REALLY SMALL. Chatted with her and her friends + Eunice on the way back. Lav's hair is SO BLOODY SHORT. Too short. Girl, why cut away your beautiful curly hair?! LOL...

Heard from them that they gave that freaky guy water. ERM?! Water?!! Okay... But Lav's friend said that the freaky guy was from the School of the Mentally Challenged. She recognized the uniform. Eunice and I thought that was home clothes. We were apparently wrong.

Mentally Challenged. Nice term. I don't mean to be rude or anything, but I just want to borrow this phrase.

Lets' see this. If I challenge you with a very difficult problem and you can't solve it, but curiousity make you want to find out what it is and noone has the answer, ARE YOU MENTALLY CHALLENGED? There are so many ways to be mentally challenged, so why that for a school name? Interesting.

Note: I am not being rude here or anything. I'm not looking down on anyone, but I just find the term "Mentally Challenged" interesting.

1st Day of School

Today's the 1st day of school!!! Woke up at 6am thinking that I overslept and missed school. Scared the sh*t out of me. I seriously do not want nightmares of what will be the 1st day of my new school life. I'm troubled though, about what I have to wear everyday. Ugh. I don't want to talk about it. I don't have bloody enough clothes to last me more than 2 weeks without repeating. *shudders*

I was actually nervous about going to school.

It's Amanda's last day of school in RP. I WILL DEFINITELY MISS YA!!! (No, not Manda Lim aka Alimz) Haha. Had a hard time during 2nd Breakout gathering everyone, huh. Please remember to send me the pictures we took to my email @ OoLiNgZoO@gmail.com. Fine, I know my email address is laughable, but I couldn't help it, since they don't accept underscores "_". -.-" Stupid Gmail. I'm digressing. Ugh. Amanda... Why must you leave?! Why are you leaving our "gang"?! Lol. (FYI, the "gang" consists of Siti, Eunice, Huihui, Cherie, Melissa, Amanda and I.) Remember lunch? We were roaming around the place and kept losing one another. Finally got together and managed to eat. Haha. Very very fun.

I had Computing and Mathematical Methods 1 today. Wahaha. Stupid session. Had to download this program to create an application, but as it was the 1st day of school and alot of the 1st years were doing the same module today, Advertised Programs could not download it for me. Darn it. Had to use the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 to create the stupid "Simple Box". It wasn't very simple at first, but after looking through the worksheet, certain clues could be found. By the way, my facilitator (faci), Mr Bernard Leong, is one very funny guy. I managed to do the Simple Box thing in the nick of time, since I was in Team 3, I watched how the first two teams solved their problem and tried to do it their way, and I actually managed to do more than what they could do. MUAHAHAHAHA. *ahem*

I think I bother the IT Helpdesk alot. Maybe too much. Poor things, replying to my many queries/problems. Wahahaha.

I love sending emails.

I love school.

I love RP. It's so fun (we kept using MSN and Windows Messenger although we were not supposed to do that during the meetings)!

In short, my first day was GREAT! The only thing I didn't like was the stairs. Climb like crap. Up and down, I kept shuffling between the canteen and cafe. I almost died. Super tiring. I'm building muscles. Very hard to explain. All you get to know is that there are many (it's an understatment) stairs/corridors. I had to change quite a number of stairs before I could get to the cafe. My class is the furthest from the cafe, nearer to the canteen, but they all wanted to go to the cafe instead. Poor me.

I think I better go. I need some sleep.

Nitez.

My very late entry... *updated*

I haven't been blogging faithfully, I apologise (especially to Ti whom I "begged" to come and read my blog regularly. Haha. My wrong). Many things have happened, and at great speed. I'm getting to much into my head, it's about to burst. Hmmm. Need a good rest, which is virtually impossible, since I have to pay close attention to every single thing that's happening around or I might just miss something out. Hee.

Read the previous few enries I have added, according to the actual date the event happened.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused. Have fun!

School starts tomorrow! I'm super nervous!!! Help!

Tata!

*Updated* 20th April 2005
My timetable is as follows:
Day 1: Computing and Mathematical Methods I
Day 2: Cognitive Processes and Problem Solving I
Day 3: Basic Sciences I
Day 4: Introduction to Communication Practice
Day 5: Enterprise Skills I

Successful Computing.

Successful computing. Successful? My ass. All I learnt was to download required programs and to download many anti-virus softwares. That's all. Nothing else, other than finding out the student leaders weren't there because they liked that job. It's all because they wanted to collect Creative Engagement (CE) points. Bleh.

We were supposed to gather in classes of 25, but Cherie was late, so Ti, Eunice, Huihui, Alvin and I went to join the queue to go to the class for the "course". We formed a group. All groups consist of 5 members. Cherie managed to find us though, and joined us, making us an odd group in the class with 6 members. We had to share adapters as there were only 5 plugs on the table. Took turns. Wahahahaha.

We were super bored that once we managed to get Windows Messenger to run under our RP ID address, we started trading IDs and bombarding everyone with messages, making us the noisiest group in the class. Well, we were given the "eye" (the one where you realise that other people aren't really happy with you) many times during the whole course/talk.

It was okay, but not fascinating.

I'm dead tired. My muscles (I've never known that they actually exist in me) still ached from the FOP (2nd day). We had so much problem walking (especially going down the stairs). Though we (Eunice, Ti plus me) had erm, difficulties, we somehow managed to get our asses to Funan the IT Mall to get the sponge-like bag to carry our laptops. Costs $15.90 @ Challenger.

When they left, I stayed to wait for Sis. She wanted to come to meet me.

Actually, I was there yesterday with Sis.

I went there after configuring my laptop in RP (it cost me $9.30 to take a cab from home to RP). There were some stuff that I just couldn't figure out. The guy was very helpful, calling others to try to help me solve the problem, but in the end, we relised that the problem will be permanent unless I deleted something which is actually needed/important for school.

I'm going to go think about what to wear on Monday while getting some sleep.

Nitez.

Second day of FOP...

I decided to date this entry to Wednesday, because I think it'll be easier for me to find the entries, when I want them. Hee.

Weather: Bloody scorching

The second day of the FOP for SAS students. (I'm too lazy to type out the full name. If you want to know what those short forms stand for, read the previous post.) Well, I reached there early, as usual, with not much anticipation in me (I only went because they told us that if we didn't attend, we couldn't get our student cards), making sure I wore a white t-shirt and brought my FOP shirt (white too). Sorry, but I heard that there would be water games, and I seriously do not want to play with water. Ask Ti how I react usually when it drizzles. Ugh. Anyway, I changed into the FOP shirt before we reported. Haha. Jermaine (Hui Hui) did that too.

We waited for Cherie and went out to the "Grand stand" (I don't know what they call it, since it has seats, a court (no basketball posts) and tennis/badminton court lines drawn on it.) Met Ti and Eunice there. Waited for very long before the Chiron Club (pronounced as "kai-ron") president and vice-president introduced themselves. All SAS students are automatically a member of the Chiron Club. Hmmm. Interesting.

Afterwards, we were split into groups of 11 or 12. About half of the SAS students (500) attended. I should've known, and stayed at home. Ti, Eunice, Jermaine, Cherie, Amanda (she looks just like Jeanette), Melissa, Yeok Suan wanted to be in the same group, so we decided to be proactive and form our own, but we were short of 3 members. So, eyeing the three guys who were sitting in front of us, we asked them to join. Haha. Nice try. Alex, Nicholas and Carney joined us. Yay! Our Orientation Group Leader (OGL) was called Miz. Nice name. Very nice person. She was like our nanny (not that it's anything bad), bringing us around, carrying our valuables and making sure we had enough water. Hee.

We went to this classroom, and played a few ice-breakers and got to know each other more. FUN FUN FUN! Wahahaha~ Waited for the flag materials to well, materialize after the games.

Clan: Rome
Group: Hamlet

Had a pretty hard time trying to do the flag, with so many suggestions, but not enough materials. Too bad. Had to make do. Lunch was, well, not very appetising, though I barely had breakfast, I still couldn't bring myself to eat more than a third of it. Tasted funny. And we found out why. Bloody sick. Never cater from Smiling Orchid don't-know-what. The facilitator in charge said, erm, there was this group who found, erm, small cockroaches in the food. I already didn't feel well with all the food in me, and that was the last straw. I went to puke. Haha. Kill two birds with one stone. I couldn't possibly keep that disgusting food down, and I didn't have to participate in the games if I don't feel well (sorry ti, but I just don't like sports. =P). I really pity Alex and Carney. They ate like as though they have starved for days, and one of them finished the whole box. *turns green*

Games:
1) Water volleyball - 3 ponchos on each team, using water bags as the volleyball. Well, almost the same rules, just different items. We won.

2) Captain Tomato - The name says alot, right? Captain's Ball using, well, tomatoes. Super sick. I was thankful I didn't play. It was a draw.

3) Weird game - Something to do with scissors, paper, stone. We lost.

4) Passing the water bombs? - The tells all. Just that they stand on chairs, and try to get as many water bombs to the other end, with the other team doing the same while trying to block/intercept your team's water bombs. Very wet game. I skipped this too. We won. Poor Ti and Hui Hui.

5) Passing the message - Very weird game. I don't know how to explain, just that the "volunteers" at the end of both rows had eggs and flour on them. Poor Nicholas.

6) Human Pyramid - I didn't want to join. Not that I didn't want to help, but asking me to do something like that can hurt myself. I'm not selfish. I just don't like others forcing me to do something that I will not do.

7) Another passing the water bombs - Just that for this, there're no chairs, and you use a poncho to pass the water bombs by throwing from one to another to the other end, where Alex tries to catch as many water bombs as possible, using a pail. I joined, tossing water bombs and tied some. Hee.

It started drizzling, so we went back to the class. Lazed around and chatted. Drank alot of ice lemon tea. Haha. When it was time for dinner, I skipped it. Did not trust the food. =P

The ending game was a "war" between the clans. We girls tried not to join. And we were right. WE didn't even know when it started, as we heard no signals, but just flying water bombs, and a lot of screaming and shouting. Chaos, utter and complete chaos. Scary.

Before we were dismissed, we were told that the student cards were not ready yet. I almost hung myself. All I went through for nothing?! I wanted to leave many times, but stopped myself for the student card. UGH. We got sunburnt. We walked from RP all the way to Redhill Mrt station. I should've taken a cab, but well, the fare's expensive okay. But we could chat, so it was okay. Though my body was screaming for a break, a bath, and the bed.

Look at my sunburnt nose and cheeks, I look as though I'm blushing. *eek*
Pardon me for looking stupid. I was very tired, and I could barely open my eyes.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
My unevenly tanned arm. I know, I'm hairy. -.-" Stop reminding me that. =P

Reached home at about 10pm. Super tired.

Nitez.

I'm going to die in bed.

Freshmen Orientation Programme

Woke up at 6am today. Went for the Freshmen Orientation Pragramme (FOP). Didn't have breakfast, because Mum refused to believe that it is possible to cook half a packet of Maggi. I almost died of hunger. Reached there early, and saw Soo Han (same course). He was "cursing" the lack of preparation by the student counsellors (they were still having a de-brief at 8am, which is incidentally, the reporting time).

I wasn't very enthusiastic, but well, I got through the day, and made a couple of friends. Jermaine, a sweet, pretty 18-year-old with long straight hair that does not misbehave. Cherie, a bubbly 17-year-old with long hair wih curls, a true shopaholic (I almost died just now while shopping). And a few others, but I feel better with these two girls though. Hehe.

We received this FOP t-shirt early in the morning.

Back "Freshmen Orientation Programme 05"

We walked up and down loads of stairs today. I think I'll get leg muscles even without excercising. This is too much!!! LOL. We had our first Problem Based Learning (PBL) in a classroom. Each class has 25 pupils, split into groups of 5. We had to make a "vehicle" of sorts and try to get it to move this certain length by letting it go off a ramp, filling it with marbles. My group won!!! Muahahahaha~

The talks after lunch were super boring. And guess what? School of Applied Sciences (SAS) freshmen students have to go back to school tomorrow, from 8.30am-9pm!!! My gosh. I'm so going to die.

FOP ended at about 3.30pm, and I didn't see Ti the whole day (she's in a different orientation group/time). I finally saw (actually, heard) her when she walked past us (Jermaine, Cherie and I) at the busstop. We were going to Orchard to shop (though we were super tired). Ti joined us, and we made it to Pacific Plaza first. Hahaha. Went to Ripcurl, and they were all stuffing pink stuff into my face (they know I adore PINK). Saw this very simple bag, but changed my mind about buying because I didn't think it was worth it ($25.90, or somewhere there). Looked through the bagpacks, but none caught my fancy, a few caught my eye, but you can't expect me to carry a white and/or pink bag when all my clothes are of that colour, right?

Went to Far East Plaza to shop. Cherie has endless energy when it comes to shopping. For the rest of us, our legs were almost giving way but she wasn't even half-done. We managed to persuade her to take a rest after she, Ti and I bought some clothes (Cherie - denim skirt, Ti - Jeans, Me - Jeans).

Jermaine left after dinner, so after awhile, we were about to leave too when I wanted to check out the price of the bagpacks at Ripcurl. $69. So expensive! And the designs aren't even nice (girls section, all bright colours). Ti decided to venture into the guys section, and called me over to see the bags. I saw the bag I liked immediately when I looked in that direction. Wahaha! Not an easy feat to find a bagpack that I like, okay. $59. Not that bad. It's $0.90 cheaper than my Billabong wallet. Wahaha. Thought it over for some time before deciding that that was the bag I want to buy. Ti bought something similar, with only the colour and picture/graffitti (looks like) diferent.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
My new bag!

I don't go for brands, really. Other than my billabong wallet, adidas shoes and water bottle (just bought, pink), Acer n30, Sony Ericsson k700i and Fujitsu laptop (6230B), I haven't got anything else that's branded (and costs over $50), I think. I always go for design, really, trust me. I have never bought anything from Ripcurl, Roxy and what-not (those water sports brands other than Ocean Pacific), except this time. I really like that bag, and now, IT'S MINE!!! Muahahaha~

*ahem*

Anyway, better sleep early, if not I might not wake up for the stupid thing tomorrow. Looks like I have to move back the configuration of the laptop till Thursday. Hope I manage to do it in time for school.

More lame jokes.

I had nothing to do, so I went and found a few very lame jokes. Funny if you get my drift.

Have fun!

Thank You For Flying With Us (My favourite)

A 747 was starting its descent and the pilot had forgotten to turn off the P.A. system.
''As soon as I clock off'' he said, ''I'm going to have a nice cold beer and then screw the arse off that blonde flight attendant.'' The horrified flight attendant made a dash toward the cockpit, but tripped over in the aisle.

A little old lady sitting there whispered, ''There's no need to hurry love, he said he was going to have a beer first.''

Alligator Shoes

A young blonde was on vacation in the depths of Louisiana. She wanted a pair of genuine alligator shoes in the worst way, but was very reluctant to pay the high prices the local vendors were asking.

After becoming very frustrated with the "no haggle" attitude of one of the shopkeepers, the blonde shouted, "Maybe I'll just go out and catch my own alligator so I can get a pair of shoes at a reasonable price!"

The shopkeeper said, "By all means, be my guest. Maybe you'll luck out and catch yourself a big one!" Determined, the blonde turned and headed for the swamps, set on catching herself an alligator.

Later in the day, the shopkeeper was driving home, when he spotted the young woman standing waist deep in the water, shotgun in hand. Just then, he saw a huge 9-foot alligator swimming quickly toward her. She took aim, killed the creature, and with a great deal of effort hauled it on to the swamp bank. Lying nearby were several more of the dead creatures. The shopkeeper watched in amazement. Just then the blonde flipped the alligator on its back, and frustrated, shouts out, "Damn it, this one isn't wearing any shoes either!"

Drunken Donut II: The Return

A cop pulls over a guy.
"Your eyes are awfully red. Have you been drinking?"
"Gee, officer," the man says. "Your eyes are awfully glazed -- have you been eating doughnuts?"

Three Nuns

Three nuns decided to quit so they went to the Mother Superior and said, "We don't want to be nuns anymore, how do we quit?" The mother told them, "Do something unholy and come back here in 24 hours." So the nuns left thinking, "What can I do that's unholy?"
The next day they went to the mother one at a time. The mother said tot he first nun, "What unholy thing did you do?" and the nun said "I stole a kid's bike." The mother said, "I guess that will do, go drink some holy water. When the nun did she wasn't a nun anymore and she left the convent.

The second nun walked in and the mother said, "What unholy thing did you do?" The nun replied, "I slept with a married man!" The mother said, "Well, that's sinning. Go drink holy water."

The third nun walked in and the mother said, "What unholy thing did you do?" The third nun said proudly, "I pissed in the holy water!"

Expensive Perfume

A young, beautiful woman gets into the elevator, smelling like expensive perfume. She turns to an old woman and says arrogantly, "Giorgio Beverly Hills, $100 an ounce!"
Another young, beautiful woman gets onto the elevator and also smells of very expensive perfume. She arrogantly turns to the old woman and says, "Chanel No. 5, $150 dollars an ounce!"

About three floors later, the old woman has reached her destination and is about to get off the elevator. Before she leaves, she looks both of the women in the eyes, turns around, bends over, farts and says, "Broccoli, 49 cents a pound!"

New Yorker

A Texan, a Russian, and a New Yorker go into a restaurant in London.
''Excuse me, but if you wanted the steak you might not get one as there is a shortage due to the mad cow disease,'' says the waiter.

The Texan says, ''What's a shortage?''

The Russian says, ''What's a steak?''

The New Yorker says, ''What's excuse me?''


Wahahaha~ Guess these are not very funny, but they're jokes all the same.

Nonsense... My specialty.

I've just returned from this dinner. Bloody full now. Some restaurant in Chinatown. Grandpa's old cronies. A get-together of sorts for them, I guess. Haha. Ate my fill of course. The dishes were pratically the same as those we had on Grandpa's birthday. Hmmm. Okay, after a few questions, we found out that it was my Grandpa who ordered the food. Typical.

Managed to spot the nice sunset setting I was waiting for just before I left the house. Took a quick snap. Hee. Salted egg-yolk.

Close but not very clear view.

Met up with Shan, Diane and Ti for dinner the other day (can't remember which day though). Went to Long John Silvers. Haha. Had quite a chat. Shan and Diane were in their SRJC uniform. Hmmm. Manda haven't got hers yet (only available in May - YJC).

Diane looks abit weird. It's her eyes, I think.


Went out to meet Googoo yesterday at Thomson Plaza. Was supposed to meet Shan too (after her work), but there was some miscommunication of some sort, and Shan couldn't join us. Googoo bought a bunch of roses, and was supposed to split between Shan and I, but we didn't know how to do it (no place to keep). Went to Swensen's to eat (Googoo had 49ers - burgers, I had Cream of Chicken - soup and Gold Rush - ice-cream).

Googoo with the roses.

Met Sis after that. She went to have dinner at BK, and I ended up eating those chicken cheesesticks. I already had dinner (Chicken rice). I alomost died from all the food. UGH. LOL. Sis wanted to eat ice-cream, and her current favourite is Belgium Chocolate - Haagen Daaz.

Haha. I'm getting drowsy. Sorry. Too much food makes me sleepy.

Anyway, I wanted to post stupid pictures, so I decided *takes deep breath* to take a picture of myself when I was using the eye mask (my 1st time using that).

Tadah!

Lame right? Laugh your head off. I don't mind. It's for fun anyway. =D

Update (11/04/05): Sis said that I look like a racoon. I beg to differ. I think I look like a panda with wrong colours.

I've got to go now, or I might just fall asleep in front of the laptop.

P.S: I've managed to copy Best of Blue into the laptop (no idea what happened to the copy control thing)! Yay!!! No need to buy the songs online anymore! Muahaha. I just need to edit my background song so the stupid pop-up is no more. *sigh* I didn't know about the stupid pop-up. My apologies.

Freaky Websites.

Yahoo.com.sg is crazy. They should ban those kind of advertisements that freak people out!!! Have you noticed? There are some adverts that move right? The one about the sushi.

No NO NO.

What's the latest horror movie?

Yes.

Samara! *shivers*

Imagine Yahoo! playing a stupid advert. The first time I saw it, I had just opened a new window (my homepage's Yahoo.com.sg) and was at another window at that point of time, when I heard a sound that sounded remotely like an empty tape (watch: The Ring), so I switched windows, trying to find out where that sound came from (I don't usually play songs).

But ALAS! Guess what I saw?! From the sidebar, a well. Freakingly eerie. More pictures?! Yep. With that woman head down (thank God!). I was spooked, I tell you.

And you want to know something? I've seen it twice in the sidebar, and I've just bloody closed another window. NO. The stupid thing was not in the sidebar (where it belongs). It was directly in the middle, below the Yahoo! links.

It's damn freaky!!!

And one of the pictures have her looking at you, I think. I panicked, because I was stunned (with fear) when I saw the stupid advert. If I recall correctly, there's one of her trying to do her creepy-crawly thing.

I HATE FREAKY SHOWS!!!

I'm going to remove Yahoo! as my homepage soon, very soon. My heart stops for a second or two before everything registers and my fingers needed time to close the windows. Poor me. When I try very hard to avoid such things.

UGH.

Guess I'd better sleep now, but I'm too freaked out. But well, I guess I better stop now.

Tata.

Jokes

Baseball Heaven?

Two old guys, Abe and Sol, are sitting on a park bench feeding pigeons and talking about baseball, like they do every day. Abe turns to Sol and says, "Do you think there's baseball in heaven?"
Sol thinks about it for a minute and replies, "I dunno. But let's make a deal: if I die first, I'll come back and tell you if there's baseball in heaven, and if you die first, you do the same."

They shake on it and sadly, a few months later, poor Abe passes on. One day soon afterward, Sol is sitting there feeding the pigeons by himself when he hears a voice whisper, "Sol... Sol..."

Sol responds, "Abe! Is that you?"

"Yes it is, Sol," whispers Abe's ghost.

Sol, still amazed, asks, "So, is there baseball in heaven?"

"Well," says Abe, "I've got good news and bad news."

"Gimme the good news first," says Sol.

Abe says, "Well... there is baseball in heaven."

Sol says, "That's great! What news could be bad enough to ruin that!?"

Abe sighs and whispers, "You're pitching on Friday."

Math Trouble

A little girl was failing math. Her mother enrolled her in Catholic school in the hopes to improve her math grades. During the first marking period, her mother noticed a dramatic improvement in her math studies. The girl would refuse playing with friends and eating dessert after dinner in order to study more.
On report card day, her mother was astonished to see that her daughter got an A+ in math. She asked her daughter, “Why the sudden change of attitude about math -- do the nuns punish you?” The girl replied, “No, but when I saw the little man on the wall nailed to the plus sign, I knew that this school is very serious about math!”

The Shiny-Walled Box Thingie

An Amish boy and his father were visiting a nearby mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny silver walls that moved apart and back together again by themselves.
The lad asked, "What is this, father?"

The father (having never seen an elevator) responded, "I have no idea what it is."

While the boy and his father were watching wide-eyed, an old lady in a wheelchair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched as small circles lit up above the walls.

The walls opened up again and a beautiful twenty-four-year-old woman stepped out.

The father looked at his son anxiously and said, "Go get your mother."

The Three Little Pigs of North Jersey

Once upon a time there were three little pigs.
The straw pig, the stick pig, and the brick pig.

One day this nasty old wolf came up to the straw pigs house and said "I'm gonna huff and puff and blow your house down." And he did!!

So the straw pig went running over to the stick pig's house and said, "Please let me in, the wolf just blew down my house."

So the stick pig let the straw pig in.

Just then the wolf showed up and said, "I'm gonna huff and puff and blow your house down." And he did!

So the straw pig and the stick pig went running over to the bricks pigs' house and said, "Let us in, let us in, the big bad wolf just blew our houses down."

So the brick pig let them in just as the wolf showed up.

The wolf said "I'm gonna huff and puff and blow your house down." The straw pig and the stick pig were so scared!

But the brick pig picked up the phone and made a call.

A few minutes passed and a big, black stretch limo pulls up.

Out step three pigs named Louie, Vito,and Dominic.

These pigs came over to the wolf, grabbed him by the neck and beat the living heck out of him, then one of them pulled out a gun, stuck it in the wolf's mouth and fired.

Then they got back into their limo and drove off.

The straw pig and stick pig were amazed!

"Who the hell were those guys?" they asked.

"Those were my cousins from North Jersey--the Guinea Pigs."

Juicy Squirt

The owner of a drug store walks in to find a guy leaning heavily against a wall. The owner asks the clerk, "What's with that guy over there by the wall?"
The clerk says, "Well, he came in here this morning to get something for his cough. I couldn't find the cough syrup, so I gave him an entire bottle of laxative."

The owner says, "You idiot! You can't treat a cough with laxatives!"

The clerk says, "Oh yeah? Look at him, he's afraid to cough!"

Bus Incident

A woman got on a bus holding a baby. The bus driver looked at the child and blurted out, "That`s the ugliest baby I've ever seen!"
Infuriated, the woman slammed her fare into the fare box and took an aisle seat near the rear of the bus. The man seated next to her sensed that she was agitated and asked her what was wrong.

"The bus driver insulted me," she fumed.

The man sympathized and said, "Why, he shouldn't say things to insult passengers. He could be fired for that."

"You're right," she said. "I think I'll go back up there and give him a piece of my mind!"

"That's a good idea," the man said. "Here, let me hold your monkey."

Mr. Phillard's Twins

One day, Mr. Phillard rushed his pregnant wife over to the hospital. As the doctors were prepping his wife, Mr. Phillard's idiot brother Bill arrived to watch the birth. But when Mr. Phillard saw the blood and everything else, he fainted. When Mr. Phillard woke up he was in a bed with the doctor standing above him.
"Mr. Phillard," the doctor said, "you are in the recovery room. Don't worry, your wife is fine and she had twins, a boy and a girl. Because you were unconscious and your wife was still under anaesthesia, she requested that your brother Bill name the kids."

"What! My brother, the idiot! I can't believe you let him! What did he name them?"

"He named your daughter Denise."

"Hey, not bad! I underestimated my brother. What did he name my son?"

"He named your son Denephew."



LOL! Hope you enjoyed these jokes as much as I did!

My New Laptop!

Yay! Grandpa brought me to Funan today. Went there to meet meet Sis too. Actually, I was only supposed to meet her, but Grandpa just decided to come along to take a look, and maybe buy on-the-spot, since he thought that buying through my Uncle was a little too troublesome. Hee.

Anyway, I was looking for the Fujitsu S Series, S6230.

Hehe. Found it, then found the price. Ugh. S$3488. WAH!!! Kill people set fire ah! Lol. Translate directly into chinese and you'll get what I mean. Hee. After visiting a few shops and stuff, we finally found a shop which gave us a S$130 discount. LOL. The other shops gave us a maximum of S$100 discount. Hmmm. Harvey Norman sucks does not have discount, and their extended warranty costs S$100 PER BLOODY YEAR.

The salesguy was cute. Not about his looks (not bad too) , but he certainly had a sense of humour. :) He could even converse in Chinese and talked to my Grandpa. Haha. Earning himself a deal.

My Grandpa could actually bargain like mad. LOL. 1st time seeing him this way. Real funny. Sis and I were just standing on the sidelines, and watching him bargain.

My Very Own Laptop...

Bought 2 mice (computer mice). 1 for me, 1 for Sis.

Cute? Looks big right?

Be amazed, be very amazed. Lol. It's a retractable optical mouse. Love the colour, but too bad mice don't come in pink. But if you see any in pink, leave me a message.

LOL. It's bloody small I tell you. Super small. Maybe it's just my hand. My hands are too big. But...

Well, it's time for more pictures I guess.

Busy Morning... 100th entry... hee

I'm so freakin' tired... Just got back home... Woke up at 8.30am just to go to the bank to pay my school fees and go down to school (RP) to hand in all my forms plus documents and check out the laptop fair of sorts.

What a waste of time there. There were only 2 laptops available. One Acer (too heavy) and one Fujitsu (too laggy). In the end, grandpa decided to ask my uncle to help me order, since he was the one who helped my sis get her laptop...

That's all for the moment. I've got to go and sleep now. Very tired...

Tata.

P.S: This is my 100th entry!!!

Grandpa's 73rd Birthday...

Went out for dinner... Grandpa's 73rd birthday (if I counted the candles correctly). Had a change of menu this year, surprisingly. Not a restaurant having seafood, but instead, we went to this coffeeshop near Sim Lim, I guess. Can't really remember. Grandpa actually booked 3 tables, for 26 people, if I counted properly. The place actually looked like a restaurant without air-con.

Had roast pig, sharks' fin, lobster, fish and many other dishes I can't remember. My brain gets fuzzy once my stomach's full. I guess I was in half-asleep mode the whole time. The food was good, but I ate till I was bloated, so I really sort of stuffed the food down my oesophagus.

My Grandparents. Sis forgot all about the cake. *rolls eyes* :X

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Blow candles! That's Shaun/Shawn (forgot which spelling) by the way. My youngest cousin. I think.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Cut cake! Yay! Yum yum.

Overheard my grandma talking to my dad in the car on the way back, and she told him the meal cost about $350, and it was pretty cheap. And if I heard correctly, it was the price per table! WAH!

CHEAP?!!

My gosh... That amount of money is more than enough to last me a few months...

=(

I am one sad kid, man... Lolx.

*Yawnz*

Eat then sleep. That's what I do best.

Nitez.

Ebooks and their many problems...

I've started re-reading Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's Stone. Someone told me to watch out for cab-snatchers. Lolx.

I managed to get my hands on all 5 ebooks, but I was really not very pleased. The books had numerous errors, including serious spelling errors, spacing errors, even chapter errors. I had these weird numbers all over the place, even a small portion of the story absent from the pages, replaced by weird numbers.

UGH.

I spent the whole afternoon editing books 2 & 3. I couldn't be bothered with book 1 as there were no serious problems, other than all paragraphs sticking together, and the inability of identifying chapters as all the words were stuck together. Line to line, that is.

Can't wait for Harry Potter & the Half-blood Prince to be out.

The last book of The Mediator by Meg Cabot is out, though I'm not sure whether or not it's available in Sg yet. Though I do know that I'm going to collect the latest version as she changed her publisher, and is not writing under the pseudonym of Jenny Carroll for the 1st 4 books in The Mediator's series. The 6th and final book was called Twilight. Wonder what wilth happen between Suze (the resident mediator, a person able to see and talk to ghosts, sometimes even coming to blows with them. Actually, always coming to blows with them) and Jesse (he's a ghost living in her bedroom, a hot male ghost, who was murdered very long ago, is Spanish, speaks English, wears cowboy-looking clothes, and is very sexy, according to Suze).

Can't wait to finish the series!

Guess it's pretty late now. Better sleep now. Might be shifting my room furniture around to move my desk near the electrical socket at the head of my bed, which means that my bed has got to shift. Can't have myself tripping over the laptop's wires in front of the toilet (my desk is along one end of that wall, a socket on the other), so I have no choice but to use the one at my bed... Might take pictures of my room to explain the layout, after I finish cleaning my room.

*sigh*

Grrr...

Haven't been blogging for quite some time now... Everything's a mad rush, so to speak... RP sent the e-matriculation thingy. School fees are bloody expensive, more than 2k a year! *sigh* But on the other hand, I am super glad it's actually compulsory to get a laptop!

I have been very, VERY bored at home. I'm almost starting to eat those books I've recently finished reading... Crazy thought, I know, but I just can't help it! I know, I know... Cranky, but it's not my fault...

Almost everyone's attending school... Noone's free to chat for long... Ugh. So bored... I love Thierry! He stands by me, always (I believe so, don't try convincing me otherwise) !

I remember going to RP with Ti sometime during this week, but I actually forgot the day... Now you understand how much I need something to record my thoughts. Anyway, the school's not very big, but it's situated on a bloody hill. I remember being VERY out of breath just trying to get from the bottom to the top. I almost died. Lolx. I was particularly upset about the One Stop Station. The woman with the short hair was not what you would usually call friendly, helpful and informative. All I wanted to know was how to transfer between courses, and she told me to log on to www.myrp.edu.sg, login, and press the button. How the *toot* will I know what button to click?!

*Volcanic eruption*

Recently, I've got this newfound urge to stab someone when he/she irritates the sh*t outta me. Especially my parents.

Beware, good folk of Singapore.

I better sleep now, or I'll scream in frustration at all the irritating things bothering me.

Nitez.
