our very last night in hall:











i'll miss the american idol fanclub in the tv room every wednesday, bathing together, the mauritian, the abcs, the roomies in their pjs, watching dvds for 15 hrs till 6am every morning and so much more

...however, its fantastic to be home!

i got the letter yesterday tbat i am shortlisted for the accelerated law program. im v happy altho im not too sure as yet whether thats what i want to do with my life. interview's next week so im just going to give it my best shot.

last night i had a dream that i was talking to three men in business suits on the bus and asking them what i should do with my life. how symbolic because three paths are open to me now. and a bus sorta means a transition and im certainly in a transition now. one is the law thing, two is masters in socio and three is a good job in research/SID. all of them are unranked in preference in my mind , simply because i have just come out of exams and have not had the time to make such mindboggling decisions.

i just hope i do the right thing for myself.

Girlies... How I so look forward the weekend... Latin fest girls? picnic there?
I'm blogging during tea time at work. Working here was bloodless (No blood, sweat nor tears), uninspiring and disillusioning. Something that i expected when i came in here for the first day. Wished for someone (a ART/ Creative director) who could inspire me the same way, whom I could believe in and want to push the enevelopes in lateral thinking. Wished for some sort of cause to arouse that sort of passion in me, to drive me and to fill my life with something beyond the mundane and the cheapskate "hard sell" local clients. Still hanging on, looking forward to materialise my dreams.

Hi girlies,

exams are officially over but im sleeping less than ever!!!

ive been busy watching *ahem* meteor garden with camp-in gfs day and night for the past few days ( we sleep at 6am everynight and we huddle together sobbing). Yes, i know everyone thinks meteor garden is gross but i feel its really touching and magical. and im so crazy in love with jerry yan's character in the show...thanks for lending me the discs gayle!!!

ive also been busy because the roomies and i have a packed itinery from after the exams till we move out as there's so little time left together. so far we've planned 30 mins walk to supper at 2am. on the walk home from supper, a big wind blew and these tall big nus trees threw their leaves all over us....when i leave school i'll miss the sprawling nus campus with those tall nus trees and yellow streetlights at night...

we've also had our classmates over for cookouts and we've planned walks up the hill behind my hostel (kent ridge hill). everyone should go to kent ridge park once ! the view is unparalled gorgeous up there...it has this new bridge built high up in the trees and side of the hill. i was super scared at first but once i got used to it, the view was breathtaking.

i must be watching too much MG cos ive been feeling so daydreamy lately. anyways here are pics from the cookout! i made the mashed potato salad cos im a bad cook, and the veggie thingie is mango coleslow with raisins. delish!







happy me and the boy with no smiling capacities.

Hi girls...

I'm doing quite alright, just lingering with a mild cough. Work wise, bland and boring. That's why I really look forward meeting sin yee to "complain" about local shops and of course juice up our brains to come out with good compelling stuff if time allows.

Stel, lets hang out after your exams kay. Catch a movie or something. See ya gals later...

Love

hello darlings,

i know i've been MIA for a while. stella was complaining about it..... technical problems..... PC totally gave up on me, tried reformatting it, a few times, driver problems, ended up buying a whole new computer. took a few days to get it and took a few more to get everything installed and stuff and here i am.

having the 2nd week of my easter break now. and goodness knows what i did with the first...i think i slept through it. had a few days of partying with some friends...not that exciting really..went to the casino and i was dying to get home by 2am, cos i was up since 6am and i was aching all over. and my friend reluctantly had to leave cos he stayed over at my place and had to leave with me. nope, didn't gamble....was too tired and unwilling to part with my money. thought the last time i went, i decided $1 was all i was spending and i went home with over 30 bucks. that was hilarious. it was all from a slot machine and i'm saving the coins for my laundry in winter.

other than that, i'm trying to work on an assignment and mich and stel are helping me out....hehe...still waiting for their input...how exciting....

Old foggies at the club today taught me how to play Balut, a social game involving dices and strategies. The game was really interesting and I actually had alot of fun playing at the inter-house tournament. Of course I didn't win anything, but it was all good fun.

Hello girls...

Started full time work in a local shop doing cliché property ads & annual reports. Not my cup of tea thou in terms of work. Am in there for the money, no passion or whatsoever, I just work like the soulless ghost cruising my days awaiting the month end. They have a tracking device at the door to tap to see who and when leaves the door. Sigh! Local shops... No complains with that, some other shops which I’d freelanced before had video surveillance cameras checking on their staff (how bad can it get eh?)

A good thing to mention, folks there are rather nice, they are all your typical married young people with kids. So gals, there are no eye candies or even hotties to ogled at work. Much details later...

pasting what human amos (alex) just told me on icq:

Did he tell u what happened when we were at Bukit Timah plaza? We went to the exercise shop, and I was enquiring abt the cost of weights there. Anyway, there was this old man who was sitting down, a friend of the shopkeeper... so he tried to be helpful and tell me about what kind of weights I shld buy, etc etc. After a while he gave up, looked at David, then said, "I see a beefcake over there, you should ask him"

awwww my beefcake !heheh.

Stel, before I leave for china... There are still a few months away. At least not till July this year... Girls, I'm taking up a shit ass job with an annual report specialist as their copywriter Something that I absolutely detest. I hate it so much! It’s dry, boring and fu**ing anal...

For weekends, I will be moonlighting as an usher in esplanade. Both jobs came in handy for me because it's good for me that I had foreseen this so that I would have built up a little nest egg to last me for some time in china.

I can no longer access the blog from my workplace as its blocked by a firewall! The It peeps probably thought that it is some porn site...and I'm too shy to go ask them to unblock it..reason being I don't want people from work to discover the website! There goes my only source of entertainment at work..

This is probably the most infuriating update for the week. Other than that, nothing much happened during work besides celebrating birthdays and preparing for easter sunday activities.

shihui: I miss you! NOw that theres a brillant jazz concert to go to, I have nobody in mind that I can think of asking to the concert. If I'm really desperate, I'm going to go by myself or bring my mother!

speaking of books n trilogies, i got a copy of my most favouritest book the unbearable lightness of being for my bday. ive been so immersed in it i miss trainstops, time flies and i daydream when im trying to study. i havnt read a book for fun in such a long time and i've forgotten how much i truly love to.

Hello girls,
*blushes profusely* thank you all very much for your kind words.

Mich: God wouldn't want to see you so early yet. The magnitude of your fear in this tube incident really makes me wonder sometimes where God is. I do hope that tomorrow you will wake to a beautiful sunrise. maybe it will be the start of better things.

angie/gayle: We have to settle the money thingy after angie gets back from indo.

jerri: What you are feeling are pretty much about perception. Reminds me of Patch Adams and seeing past the 4 fingers - when we focus too much on the immediate problem, we tend to miss out on the greater picture. But thanks for the reminder. I know you are strong enough to do that :)

qingya: Yum! Danish bread is so tasty. So nice to have your boyfriend bake together while u help him out. Awwwwwww! So sweet. Hope you too enjoy your easter break before you head back to Binghamton.

stel: How did david and you spend the birthday night?

girls, today i was on my way to the le tigre gig when suddenly there was this emergency evacuation in the tube station...
at first they were paging for some inspector to a certain platform but later they started annoucing about some emergency and that everyone should evacuate the tube station immediatly....man i was scared shitless! Everyone was walking out clamly at first but on the last escalator towards the exit, pple were panicking and even the cleaners were rushing out...and that totally freaked me out!
only 2 things were on my mind...one, i was not ready to die i want to go back to god!...i was so sure i would to go to hell and secondly, i was thinking how upset my mum would be...:S
anyway we got out of the station... everything outside seemed perfectly normal so that clamed me down abit but i was still in the state of shock and feeling very disorientated....

Buon natale Stella (your name in Italian means star btw)! You sound like you are having a great great birthday! I know that you are probably happy and contented but I would still like to wish you great happiness in the days and years to come. Now that you turned 23, it got me thinking that we all going to be 23 soon. I don't know about you guys but it is a really scary thought to me. I wish I can forever be 21. I like that age.
Shihui my dearestest friend and dancing buddy, I totally understand what you are talking about. There was a period of time when I am so depressed and suicidal (I think I told you girls before) that I drifted from everyone and became dependent on Arthur. That lasted from Oct 2002 to July 2003. And it was also a period of time when I stopped talking to Dara. I had this major madness going on in my head that I thought it was impossible for me to be normal again. That was the period of time when I also lost interest in everything that I used to like to do like shopping, hanging out with friends etc. And when I bumped into Dara last September and started hanging out with her again, and with the help of prozac and after I got together with Henrik, I became somewhat "normal" again. But who's to define madness. What is defined as madness or weirdness is the consequence of the perception of a reality that is "normal" to ordinary standards. But anyway, now that things have gone awry with Dara and since I had drifted from people during my depression period, I feel kind of lonely in Binghamton. I mean I still have a number of friends in Binghamton but they are not close close friends that I can hang out with all the time. So I do know what you mean by going shopping alone for example. I know I couldn't help alleviate that feeling you are experiencing now but I do hope that by sharing my experience, I want you to know that you are not alone. I love you and wish I can do something.
Anyway girls, I went out dancing in this new club in nyc last night with Henrik and a bunch of his friends, mostly swedish people. It was sooo much fun!! I really love to dance and Henrik was so crazy last night....haha. He was dancing so much. Never saw him like that before. We all had a really great time.
Gotta go now, he's baking some Danish bread so we are going to go grocery shopping for meat to go with the bread.
Au revoir,
qingya

happy birthday stel, started celebrating so early? wish i could be there with you all. it's been ages since i celebrated your birthday. just relaised that for once you can't complain that you feel old cos you are the first to turn 23..hahaha....

i'm just dying for this coming week to pass cos the easter break is coming. but i've got to finish an assignment first and i feel toooo lazy. i think i'll end up waiting to the last minute to finish it...good news is that it's more or less half done. gotta tie up some loose ends and compile it...

mich, stop making me jealous!!! i want to go for a holiday too... since i came back from my trip up north, i've been dying to get away again.....everything is just sooo beautiful up there. unfortunately, i still haven't received the photos from my friend in singapore so i can't show any to you girls.

fanni, you are priceles. you encourage me and make me laugh at the same time. i was imagining that we were all from those kungfu times and we could fly and stuff...it was hilarious. thanx dear.

stella was reminding me that gayle, angie and fanni would exchange places with me in a heartbeat just to be in perth and i realised how true that is. and i was thankful for the oppurtunity i have to study on. but as i explained to stella. it feels like a great sacrifice to be away from all my bosom buddies. and i do try to do things that make me happy but oh, it's too hard. how many times can u go shopping alone? and how many times can u go to mill point and have a coffee by yourself before you feel even lonelier than before? but i am ever so glad that everyone, even mermaid is actively updating the blog. makes life a little easier to bear. i think all this is putting a strain on me. i'm forever picking fights with ben and he's been so good to put up with me and still treat me so well. sometimes i think i take ben and all of you for granted.

anyway, i try to get through each week reminding myself that i'm moving closer and closer to completing my studies and soon (hopefully) i'll be earning big bucks and can fly back to see you all soon. i also remind myself how lucky i am to healthy and not struggling to find money to feed and clothe myself and that i've got wonderful friends mile away who care for me as much as i care for them.

gonna go back to bumming now..reading this trilogy called his dark materials... it's fantastic!

My darlings,
Am in nyc right now...will be here for about 10 days due to spring/easter break. Am really happy here with Henrik. You girls know (or don't and hence now know) that I detest ghetto Binghamton. Have not talked to Dara for days, I feel I will get easily annoyed with her if I were to talk to her at the present. So I will just wait for the passage of time before I can really talk to her.
Stella woman,
If you have to deal with that red hot chilli peppers like on a daily basis, perhaps you really should confront her phlegmatically and let her know how you feel.
Fanni darling,
You sound pretty depressed there in the last message. I'm most certain that you have things, whether tangible or metaphysical, that are a success and pride to you. So please be sanguine!
Mich love,
You sound like you are having sooo much fun. I am definitely green with envy! I will most certainly be going to europe this year. So we have to meet up if you are still dwelling in those fantasy voids of mine! Miss you my friend!
Love love,
qingya

Hello girls...

Just have this thought trepidating on my mind the whole of today. Girls, I feel like my whole life is destined to be one long wrestling match, an interminable football game with a million overtimes and no winning field goal.
