- Touched down at narita and to our surprise, our flight is delayed for abt 2 hour! (From 3.15pm tkt to 4.50 tkt) Luckily it turned to be a scare, still delay though. To 3.50pm tyt. Now its 3.14pm. Still waiting....
- Saw snow at Minneapolis airport! White blanket covering entire Minneapolis! Awesome!
- 2nd flight delay of the day from Minneapolis to Oklahoma City for abt 45 mins! What luck!
- Small and cramped Delta Connection has a wide array of soft drinks. Still prefer the comparatively spacious (but still tight aisles) to this domestic flight. Pretzels are yucky but I finished 2 packets of those biscuits. The ONLY flight attendent (compare that to abt 6-12 attendents on an international flight) is a fat male with an attractive voice. Lol!
- Touched down at Will Rogers airport. Waiting for our luggage when the coveyor belt stops suddenly. Turns out some idiot kicked the emergency stop button. But we got our luggages in the end. Met 2 nice part-time 'schoolmates/modulemates' (.....watever....). Nice persons. Bonded with them over a salty macdonald meal. Its dirt cheap btw. Hate the strong winds and blazing cold though.
*Photos up asap. Stay tuned...*

Dear Megan Tan Wei Shan-
Your grade on Essay #2 is "A-".
This might not be a great grade for most, but I am already exceptionally grateful. Especially considering the fact that I missed most of Leo's classes and never return after the break until the lessons are over.
I so afraid he will flunk me cause I am 100% sure he knew about my absence.
Even got caught red-handed a few times.
To show my gratitude, I am gonna work real hard on the post assignment!!!
I had already finished the post assignment and it was sloppily done. And it will take a giant buffalo to make me redo it again.
I promise to add in if I think of anything Ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡.̮Ơ̴̴͡

But thank goodness I made a checklist of the stuff I would put in my luggage, handcarry and what I would wear respectively! How's that for orderly?
I thought I misplaced my US dollars yesterday. Nearly broke into tears. I probably won't had found it if not for my determination of 'not gonna sleep tonight if I don't find my usd".
Sometimes you just need pure determination and a stroke of luck. Memory is important too but then its not always reliable.

Must be sleeping really lightly by then.
Of course the 3 alarms sounding at the same time help a little somehow.
The reasons for the alarms are that I am heading to my 2nd Aunt's bdae party in Johor. Dunno if I will do another post about it with pictures cause I doubt I will take any. Since I am not a photo person and all...THAT plus the fact that I will only bring my bb8520, which comes equipped with a ok quality 2mp camera. Okay quality for a 2mp but not really wonderful for taking pictures.
We'll see how.
And of course, my new Touchy will be coming as well. Helps to drive boredom. I am so prepared with the frantic downloading of apps yesterday.
Oh, mum's calling.
Tada, off to showers.

No more school after this.
Anyway I checked whether my salary was banked in today and I got more than I deserved! Mandy I LOVE U!!! I didn't work so much but I got more pay? Haha...don't mind if I keep coming back for more~
Only like about a month to the day when I am supposed to depart for the states. Its coming too fast yet not fast enough. One moment I was dreading to go to a foreign country to chiong studies, another (moment) I am like hoping it will come faster so that I can have no exams no more. Super weird mindset but its okay, don't mind me.
Preparation for departure is like only 45% done! OMG! WHAT ELSE DO I NEED??!!!! PANIC ATTACK!!!!

Mum: Yeah...it was ringing so I pressed until the sound stops.
Me: (mumbling) No wonder it was shut down...
Mum: I press until the ringing stops lo. And it did!
Me: (exclaimed): Shut down le of course it stops la!
Sometimes my mum is just too cute.

Good thing I found this on the web. It gives a vast glossary of text emoticons to give your sentences more "feelings".
And some are really interesting! For example, guess what this is:
It's a rabbit? Damn cute rite?
More from the website shown below:
Alignment got problem. It looks better on the web though...

Well...at least its with the elements so it should be something different. At least not everyone knows about chinese horoscopes with elements.....right?
Mine is Fire Rabbit.
FIRE RABBIT Horoscope
Rabbit people love to play under the moonlight. Quite fanciful, they respond to the power and beauty of nature and are always being pulled one way and the other to examine what they find. They are the luckiest of all twelve signs! But, it's more a result of "the harder I work, the luckier I get" than taking crazy chances. They are cautious, conservative, bright, and have a good head for business. Supremely pleasant to have around, these affectionate, naturally shy peacemakers seldom ever lose their temper. They sometimes appear to be singing the blues because of a natural but short-lived tendency towards despondency. Rabbits always inspire deep admiration and trust.
Ginger Soup and Ginger Noodles are among the keys to good health!!
|The Fire Rabbits stand out from the crowd of other Rabbits. You might expect Rabbits to be passive, quiet, and loners. Not so, the Fire Rabbits. These extroverts are leaders of the pack! Fire Rabbits intuitively sense the right way to bring out the best in themselves and other people. They are brave creatures, thirsty for life. Others eagerly follow them because of the promise of adventure and great fun, and they are never disappointed. Visionary explorers, Fire Rabbits inspire others to see beyond the surface. Unlike other Rabbits, Fire Rabbits have the potential to be truly rich. Enormously capable and hardworking, Fire Rabbits can achieve great things others cannot match. Captains in charge of their lives, they experience smooth sailing in their careers. The multifaceted Fire Rabbits experience great versatility in their lives. Their interests can range from Agatha Christie to bungee jumping, from caviar to enchiladas, from snowskiing to Scrabble. Speaking of Scrabble, spell Love: L-O-V-E is very kind to Fire Rabbits. Excellent lovers, they rapturously charm their partners with cozy fireplaces, affectionate hugs, and, most of all, undying support and loyalty. |
Famous RABBIT people: Hu Shih, Hu Yao-Bang, Kim Young Sam, Sally Ride, Leonardo Di Caprio, Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Arturo Toscanini, Leontyne Price, Clare Boothe Luce, Tiger Woods.
Don't really like the last person mentioned, but I guess I will forgive and forget. Besides, he is the only name I recognised besides Leonardo Di Carpio.

Love this game.
Haha..I lost. Aim is to get 100 cups of noodles cooked without consumers flaring up. I missed it by only 8 more cup noodles to go. Boo hoo~
It is initially developed by Nissan Japan to promote their products. Super fun lor~
I know SG also develop games for marketing purposes ( recently I just played one developed by NYP regarding NDP 2010), but none is really THAT interesting.
Finally win! Woohoo~

But this...really make it on the top on my list.
So kind. Still show concern for the rest of the Singaporeans cause he scared other people kena dragged into the matter. I can imagine the end 'OK?' is spoken with a cute pleading tone.
You go, Local!

For those who have no idea what a S10-3 is. Well..its a netbook. Look at the picture below to get the ball rolling.
Everyone who seen it so far likes the criss cross mosaic pattern of the cover. I do too and still love it now. In fact that's what make me purchased it in the first place.
What a big mistake. A SGD578 dollars mistake.
Okay first thing first, let's start with the thing that's REALLY BOTHERING ME - ITS FREAKINGLY AGONIZINGLY HAIR-TEARINGLY SLOW!!!!!
If i know it will be this bad. I should had just get a laptop. Don't mind the size.
The netbook seems light enough to my friends but I had weighed a number of netbooks on my hand before. And trust me, my hands had felt lightest. I did weighed the S10-3 before the purchase though. But that was without batteries. Once again, I had fallen into prey of the infamous 'battery trap' again. Just like what I did with my Dell laptop (now in the hands of the evil twins). When will I ever learn????
Something fascinating is the QS (Quick Start) button. Main purpose of the thing is for quick access/bootup for web surfing purposes. Tried it but since it doesn't startup my Mobile BroadBand program, I'd never really see the whole thing go through. Once day I might bring it out someday but that will be quite a painful chore as till date, I had seen no netbook bag to my fancy.
The touchpad.......Arh....one big joke. Nobody in the world, judging for personal experience and online readers and editors reviews, would use this thing in his or her right mind unless he or she is desperate without a mouse at hand. Nuff said.
Well the rest is still minor issues, its the speed (or lack of) that is really killing my impatient soul. Regardless its the only thing I have and is able to bring to the states so I guess I have to really make do. Let's pray pray pray HARD that it will get SO MUCH better. PLEASE~~~

I watched Corpse Bride years ago in the theaters....I think. If not I can't explain the familiarity of the movie. Its alright, just a little disgusting to watch when having a meal. Especially the ugly maggot.
Alvin and the Chipmunks however is something totally new to me. I remember years ago I used to scoff at people who paid money to watch it in the theaters. Boy was I wrong. Once I started, I can't stop! Theodore is the cutest. Still puzzled why Alvin is the "main chipmunk lead" though. He did nothing really special in the movie. Must be a personal favorite of the script writer.
Dave last job is in an advertising firm! So related to what I just studied!
I discovered this always happens. Things related to my studies usually appears after the entire thing (course and exams) is over. Seldom do things appear in between studies. Not to say they don't though. They do, just SELDOM.
They got the astrology part right. Well...at least the Sagittarius. That's all I knew anyway. Haha~
But they really need to get their facts right on the Chinese horoscopes. I born in 1987 but I don't think I'm a Cat. In fact I know for sure that I'm a Rabbit! I am Chinese and I know these things.
Seriously~ Can't they just go a Google search or something? Surely that wouldn't take much of their game developing time! Moreover it will reflect better on the company. Now its just a joke!
Fav anime at the mo is “天才宝宝” aka Aka-Chan To Boku and How to train your dragon 3d.
Speaking of "How To Train Your Dragon 3D", really regret no watching in its wonderful true Imax form while its in the theaters. The 3D effects looks damn cool~ Esp the beg where the waves looks like it will splash into your face and the end where Toothless was flying through the rocks.
This time I am going to watch Despicable Me no matter what. If nobody's watching with me I will drag my family along. Bwahahaha~
Wednesday, June 9, 2010
Even so..... I am all the more grateful for all the friends that stayed with me till now. Eva, Shereen, Vanessa, LD....I know it wasn't easy. I am not the automatic sort. Neither am I the super fun and exciting type.
But then I do not think I deserve this. If you don't want to be friends. Just tell me so. We both know the relationship is strained. And its making me bad tempered cause its just so damn irritating to see us pretend.
Many a times I wanted to just tell you straight so that we can get it over and done with. But deep inside, I keep hoping that it will blow over and everything will be alright again.
I dunno if that day will ever comes. But right now, I don't how much more I can take.
So I am begging you....please end it?
Friday, June 4, 2010
How old do you think you are?
No thanks, I already have 2 immature brothers. Don't need you 2 to add to my headache.
And all those craps about you understanding us...pui~ Den you should have either saw it coming or at least understand why I back out, don't you?
And I told you 2 days before. You ample time to avoid panicking during the last min. When you said you respect my decision, I was relieved. I should have known. You respect nothing. Especially not me.
This US trip has already turned into a disaster. If you don't wanna travel w/me in the end, its fine. Good thing I have backup plans. Don't think you are the only 'friends' I have.
If you are angry, lemme tell you sth. You shouldn't be. CAUSE I AM F***ING FURIOUS RITE NOW! I SHOULD BE responsible? Now you look me yeah? Why don't you give me all your money then? I will be responsible and spend it all for you. I will try my hardest to spend it all so just give me your money. I promised I will complete this 'difficult' mission.
So much anger in my stomach. It's making me look fatter than usual. And I don't look very slim in the 1st place.

[graphic via BBC.com]
- Fetus position - A whopping 41% of participants sleep in this curled-up manner. Women are twice as likely to rest like this and it is listed as the most common position. These sleepers are said to have a tough exterior but are still sensitive and may appear to be shy but warm up quickly.
- Log position - If you sleep on your side with both arms down, you are a social, easy-going person who is trusting, sometimes to the point of being gullible. The study showed 15% of people sleep like a log.
- Yearner position - A close third is the side-lying position with both arms out in front of the body, with 13% of partipants sleeping like this. Yearners are noted to be open-minded and still cynical, suspicious, and stubborn about sticking to decisions once they are made.
- Soldier position - These sleepers lie on their backs with arms down and kept close to the body. This 8% study is said to be reserved, quiet, without fuss, and hold themselves and others to a high standard. Soldier sleepers have a higher likelihood for snoring due to the flat-back position, which may not cause them to wake up often but may result in a less restful night's sleep.
- Freefall position - Those people who lie on their bellies with arms under or wrapped around a pillow with head turned to the side, make up 7% of the population studied. Freefallers are brash, outgoing, and are very uncomfortable with criticism.
- Starfish position - Sleepers who lie on their backs with arms up near their head or the pillow account for 5% of participants. These people are good listeners, helpful, and are uncomfortable being the center of attention. People who sleep in starfish position are more likely to snore and to suffer from a poor night's sleep more often.
I finds the above article interesting cause Yahoo News seldom publish this kind of article. Moreover I am a fan of these things *wink*.

Now get out of my head please!
Oh. No. No. Come back, please, come back. Get out when I'm done with this presentation. I still need you in the meantime. So, come back please? PLEASE?

Erm...maybe its the way I handle them. Too rough? But it seldom happens before with my normal blue-tinted contacts. Maybe the colored contacts are thinner than the normal ones. Gotta asked someone seemingly experienced. Like Ivy.
On a side note, still haven't fully recovered from Tioman. Its a fun and friendly place with lots of water fun. Insects trouble are not as bad as I though and I LOVE THE SUPER SOFT BED AND PILLOWS. So easier to sleep in! Just plonk onto the bed and less than one minute later you are in la la land. How awesome is that for a insomniac patient?
Now waiting for Lily to process the photos so I can blog about it in detail. Hope I still remember most of it by then! Stay tuned~

I'm so glad that I keep a diary of the pre-travel emotions that I am experiencing. Looking back, its pretty interesting! So many ups and downs. The mood swings really makes me wonder if I am getting a bit crazy. Then again I heard somewhere that everyone is a bit crazy in one way or another. So I guess I'm still doing fine. Right?
Maybe I can do one for post-travel and then let's do a comparison. Too bad I can't do the same for the during-travel. The fees for internet access is not really worth it. And although it usually goes very smoothly once I started hitting the keyboards, it takes a relatively long time for me to really get started.
So worried that something might go wrong tomorrow, the main concern being that whether Lily will appeared late. Think its gonna be another sleepless night, tonight.

Did a search regarding it on Google and to my amazement there is REALLY SUCH THINGS!!!
Well not exactly Pre Travel Anxiety Syndrome (PTAS for short. Getting real tired of copying and pasting that long chain of medical terms that does not exist), but travel panic attacks.
The wonder of mankind. Oh, and you too, Mother Nature.
Is that I am feeling right now? Not exactly as I am not gonna change routes or anything and I ain't the least bit scared about accidents happening. I am a firm believer of 'what should come will come eventually' afterall. And I often boast about myself being a sadist for wanting to go where the danger is at. And then come back and bragged about how I am still alive and nothing bad happened to me during the trip. Call me crazy but a nicer way to put it is - 'adventurous'. Oh maybe cause I trusted my instinct for this kinda things. It's been in a coma state so far so I reckoned nothing bad is gonna happen. And so far it has served me well.
What I AM FEELING is mostly a mixture of whether the huge racksack of stuff I packed is enough for the trip as well as an excitement kind of jitters overwhelming me. Anticipation is the word. Can't really wait for the trip to really happen even though its only about two days to the trip. TWO DAYS SEEM SO FUCKING LONG.....
Maybe I should unpack my 'racksack' and repack it again. This time putting whatever that it ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY inside. Nothing more.
Sunday, April 18, 2010
Lily mentioned something about Korea trip next year. Not sure if thats gonna happen but if it is - Cool!
Her future sista-in-law is coming along too. Might be. That is one bad factor. Not that good with strangers. But gonna try real hard. Love making friends even though that doesn't work for me 100%.
Something about a India wedding too in October this year too. Have to see schedules and stuff. So cool for Lily to ask me along! I wonder if her bf is gg too. Might not be going if that's the case. Don't really talk well around guys. Moreover I behave uncomfortably around couples. You may call it 'lack of experience' or whatever.
Now for the best news of the day. The elder one that I'm tutoring got full marks for her test! Whoa~ This nearly makes me wanna continue tutoring for the rest of my life. But I did said almost. Teaching is not really my thing. I am the heck care sort and its a good thing for me the elder sister is hardworking and really striving for the best. On her own effort. Can't do anything for those that doesn't put in motivation though.
Anyway, once again, congratulations Ira! Keep it up!
And also...I'm good! I'm good! I'm good! *doing that pumping my hands in rounds thingy*
I guess its quite normal to get insomnia everytime you feel stressed or mentally excited. But...
Two weeks in advance!
Must be REAL EXCITED if you asked me.
The usual stuff doesn't work and I went a bit outta my way to drink cough medicine. Its not drug abuse if you really must know. Its a try to see if it works and one time thingy. Anyway it doesn't work so I didn't drink it again. The taste isn't that fantastic anyway.
So now I'm here blogging, surfing the web and playing games. At the same time. Really got so used to having to multi-task that I felt uneasy if I don't do it. Guess that might contribute to why I get insomnia every so often - my brain still wanna multi-task in sleep mode. Seriously can't you go to REM stage 1st? We can talk about multi-tasking like...10am in the morning!
This is so screwed up. If I continue like this, all I am gonna do at Tioman is to catch up on my REM rebounds.
Hate you brain. You are a lousy brain for not being able to function properly.

Well...partly bcoz I'm like so free at home so I'm like getting real bored and stuff.
Ultimate aim for the trip: Takes lotsa nice nice pictures so that I can make my friends jealous.
Side but very important and die die must do aim: Have at least one of those gigantic, totally not guilt-free, fattening Ramly burgers on paya beach.
Frankly I don't really know what to expect for the trip except lotsa sandy white beaches and clear blue/green water. Gee~ I wonder if 300RM is enuff for everything...I'm planning snorkeling as well (if my *ahem2 didn't arrive coincidentally). I'm gonna have some fun!
I'm really having insomnia these days. And no..its not bcoz of the 'overwhelming expectations' for the Tioman trip. The 'overwhelming-ness' only starts today, like just now. But the insomnia has been really haunting me for days. Lack of exercise maybe? I really gotta try making myself really tired before I sleep these days. Don't wanna hop onto the Tioman island and 'impress' the tourists and locals with my magnificent panda eyes.
Btw I just changed my desktop wallpaper to reflect my current mood:
Then again..I'm thinking this will be a better one:
Wednesday, April 7, 2010
Well one quarter of 2010 had past and so far I hafta say it aint that bad. Wasn't too fantastic either but hey, beggers can't be choosers.
Received news that JT probably wanna start working. Wonderful news! Considering that he hadn't been working or doing anything productive for abt more than 3 years now.
On a side note, I'm worried abt my PEAF results. I have such a huge amount of plagiarism and and I don't think I did too well for my exam either. It all amounts to - dreadful news.I did put in huge amount of effort for my paper but you never know what their marking criteria is. Pray...PRAY HARD!
Mum had been a hurricane on fire let loose lately. I dunno what's she encountered in her workplace but venting her frustration on us isn't wise. I vowed not to do that myself a number of times but I gotta admit I sometimes let my temper goes wild. Gotta change that.
I'm a tutor now! Can you believed that? Although its for Lily's cousins and the pay is really peanuts considering I have to teach two kids of different levels - one P6 and another S4NT. I'm taking it as a past-time and am gaining experience in the meantime. I don't like it cause I have to talk so much and most of the time I have a feeling that they don't understand me. But if they don't ask - their loss. I'm not going to be responsible for every teeny weeny thing. I'm tired enough.
That's all for the update! Dunno when's the next one's gonna be but hopefully it'll be soon. Stay tuned!

I've gotten back my own passport!
Now its laying there safety in my drawer! For the past 2 - 3 days!
It's like a dream!
The feeling is wonderful. Having a hold of ur things. Feels like I'm the only one in control.
In actual fact...not really. Still gotta report to my mum if I'm getting outta the country and stuff. But still, its mine now!
Feel like rocking this song!

Heck care la, I put in whatever effort I can. The rest is seriously up to them.
Sunday, February 28, 2010
I figured that for those that comes with diagram, best to study it with diagram la. And...not to act clever, remember too much extra info for what?!!! Its not required lor.
Haiz...and to think I almost pride myself on the clever brain...
Brain! U should be very ashamed!
Next thing on the agenda, I signed a tour package w/o my mum's approval. The tour package will NEVER HAPPEN with her approval which is why I go ahead with the purchase, which is super cheap as hell at $139-$10 (discount per pax at NATAS 5*s). Me and Lily is heading on 21 April. Well something to look forward to but...let's see how it works out. Cause passport is still held as hostage.
That's all for today. Ciao~
Friday, February 26, 2010
At least not the whole chunk.
So I'm gonna juz rmb keywords here and there. Like short forms or sth.
The rest I'm gonna just read.
Let you know how it work out.
I dunno what's wrong with me but the big day is tomorrow and I can remember nothing! No concentration whatsoever. Mind is drifting to Lala land. I figure I might need a vent to let out whatever that's inside me thus this blog entry.
I better get my mood back if not I will really die hard. And I am not talking about the movie nor the video game.
I mean it.
