Yesterday was Open Day in school, was selling the remaining 80th Anniversary T-shirts while waiting for my mom to come get my report card... Was fighting with Yvonne and her friends over our territory, they were getting people to buy their Dunkin Doughnuts... Challenged yvonne to persuade my brother to buy a doughnut, but the doughnuts were sold out before he came and she had to go back to class... In the end only managed to sell about 15 shirts, since most of the students already bought it... mom came pretty late, as she had to wait in line for an hour in EC to get Wei's repeort card... Luckily me got No 5 in class, so she was pretty happy and promised to buy me a MP3 player, if it's within her budget of RM 400 - a bit too little, but it's either take it or leave it...

Thursday was the day I was supposed to go watch Initial-D with Fangi and the rest of the gang, but mom wouldn't let me out on a weekday, supposedly aoing out for two hours would really have an impact on my grades... So didn't get to go catch Edison in the end, was in a pretty bad mood that afternoon thinking about how every single student in my school were catching the 1.10 pm screening of the hottest Asian film this year... mom promised to buy the DVD for me once it comes out, but watching a movie like this at home with your mom isn't exactly how i wanted to catch the movie... at least must have one friend beside you when watching shows starring all these guys which will make you drool ( not that i actually drool when i see a cute guy on TV, i just melt ) so you can swoon over how cool he looks or argue about who looked better, Edison or Jay... Sigh, I'm always the slowest to catch the shows which everyone is raving aboutm and when i FINALLY catch the movie the topic is long over and everyone's on a new movie...

Today had to go for St. John meeting in school, where we Fifth Formers did absoultely nothing... Jayne was teaching the few of us the steps to the dance for English week, Puan Yeoh who came up to ask us to keep quiet also joined in... Was reading this comic of Elsa's, now am hooked on it... Had Physics tuition at 2, where Fangi and i were jabbing the two guys sitting in font of us... Was informed of a scenario which happened in Chemistry tuition the day before where Yuan Xiang hugged Nicholas- dunno what for, all i can say is that they're lucky it wasn't in Puan Cheng's class ( 10 hours of counselling!! ) Haha...

Was very very excited when reached home, coz the first thing i saw was 8 DVD's with the words "C.S.I. : Crime Scene Investigation Season 5" emblazoned on it!!!! Mom who had gone to Holiday Plaza in the afternnon bought it because my family is a known C.S.I. addict- Fangi's either going to be killing me the next time i see her or rushing down to Plaza pelangi to buy it... Am going to watch it once i finish dinner, so I better go eat now!!

School has started for a week plus already, am taking a long time getting used to waking up at unearthly hours (although according to my mom waking up at noon is unearthly). Holidays were WAY too short, lucky Singapore kids having a month's holiday. Teachers are rather unfeeling, burdening us with tonnes of homework and saying "IT'S ALL FOR YOUR OWN GOOD" aka Selena Tan in "I Not Stupid. Leader of UTO has so got to be Mr-mana-iklan-Lim, giving us 200+ pembetulan ejaan questions on our most hectic schoolday and demanding we finish it by the next day. And after I had been slogging at the bloody thing for one night, he doesn't discuss it and proceeds to give us another 200+ !! Ish, am not going to do it until the day before the due date, have got better things to do.

Went for the English College FOA on Saturday, was better than I had expected. the performances were pretty good, except one of the band singers went totally out of tune when singing "Welcome to my Life" and another was jumping around so much his pants-so i heard, since i didn't look in his direction, was focusing on the lovely clock on the wall-were about to fall off, showing his boxers. Then Alven introduced another band with a supposedly sexy name, almost jumped out of my seat when Leroy went on stage. He sang pretty well actually, was singing a song he wrote himself, "Standing Next To You" dedicated to AN-ybody out there. Noone other than the SPEC members and I got it, since i heard it from them. Was talking perhaps a little too much about it, now everyone's thinking i'm like obsessed with him or something. wish someone would write a song for me, especially if it were someone i like, very very sweet thing to do... *starts daydreaming*

Actually went there to see Yiswaree perform "Beautiful". Was really brave of her to sing without music, all Convent girls-which is a lot- kept cheering her on. In the end she got 1st, even beat that Malaysian Idol contestant, Melissa i think her name is.

Has been almost 2 weeks since i last blogged, coz mom won't let me go online, or use the laptop for that matter. Also not allowed to watch TV after 8 o'clock, as part of the "Study for SPM and Get Straight A's" campaign launched on the 14th of June, ending on the 30th of November, when the SPM is over. Get to go online today coz got 5th in class, so they're goona close one eye for these few days as a reward. Immediately went to check my mail, inbox was almost full thanks to junk mail and mail from my Chicken Soup for the Soul subscription. Then went to check my blog, download songs and went searching for Anne's blog so i can get a photo of her brother as to prove i was not hallucinating when in KL that led me to believe there are cute guys in Malaysia after all. Finally found his blog, but was very sad to find he has a steady girlfriend. Sorry to have raised anyone's hopes of there being cute guys in Malaysia, Anne's brother is studying in Singapore. Hipotesis denied...

When on my search for the blog of Anne's brother, read her testimonials written by Leroy and gang, very funny the way they wrote it. Found she had a few things in common as me, like we're both in Convent, although hers is Convent Bukit Nanas... Pineapple Hill Convent, very interesting... also like the same shows, Charmed being the most prominent, but might not count since like everyone single student in my school watches it hoping to see Chris again (episode 7!!!) especially Hema...

Gonna have to stop now, mom is getting irritated...

Yesterday went out for Stef's birthday gathering, went straight to CS after Physics tuition coz we had to go book the movie tickets... Colin followed us there, dunno why he didn't want to go home first, noone told me... So he wentwith us in my mom's car, was so quiet during the ride there, only said "Hi Auntie" and "Bye Auntie" and nothing else... My mom didn't talk to him either, only said "Hi", "seatbelt" and "Bye" to him while Fangi, Tasha and I were making so much noise in the back...

Bought a tank top for Stef there, to go with the skirt which Celine and Fangi bought her... put it in a box and bought some ribbon to decorate, so went to Vivo's to wait for the others while wrapping the present before the birthday gal came... After evrybody was there we started discussing where to go for lunch... wanted to eat at Mc' Donalds coz it's cheap and fast but there wasn't place for us, so we went to Seasons where we joined all the tables so all of us can sit together... bill came up to almost RM 150, Stef wanted to pay but we didn't let her, she is the b'day girl after all... After lunch we split into groups, me followed Kim, Stef they all and walked around before going to the 5th floor to take the RM 13 photo... Me didn't want to take, since i was broke already, spending too much for this month, rest of the month have to "keng mian bao" liao... Watched "A Lot Like Love", quite nice but some parts were very very very unnecessary... There were many songs in there i like, especially the one Oliver (Ashton Kutcher) sings to Emily (Amanda Peet)... Have got the song now, the lyrics is at the ebd of me post (thanks Nick for the song and lyrics)... Was very excited when saw one trailer showing a racetrack coz immediately knew it was the trailer for Initial-D !!!! very sorry to Kysha, who was stuck between Fangi and I, both of us were squealing upon seeing the trailer... What to do, seeing cute guys really help me sleep... but didn't show Edison or Jay, only show the drifting and the water in the cup or watever swirling... Haihz, can't wait till the day i can watch the movie, hope mom will let me go watch coz i'll die of cute-guy-deprivation if there's such a thing... Wei was there too with his friends, watching the same show, so i kept turning behind to check on him...

Didn't have anthing to do after the movie, followed Fangi to go check on Celine who didn't watch the movie... left her there after seeing she was "busy" and went downstairs where i suprised my brother, his face so funny... everyone started to go home, Tasha and i went downstairs to join our brothers and their friends who were having a nice hi-tea at Secret Recipe... started talking about the Scrabble Open, which is about the only ting i can talk to them about... Went home around 6.30 where i watched TV until 11 pm, coz got so many shows to watch... haha, a perfect day...

this morning was rudely awoken by my alarm clock, which my mom accidentally switched on... had to attend english tuition at 9, so didn't get to sleep in... Went to tuition and started talking while waiting for the rest to come, coz Wei Ling tot it was at 9.30 and mel had to rush over from softball practice... nothing much after that, it's been a milkrun ( am i using it correctly? )

Haihz, blur blur me tagged Vanessa's blog 4 times, 3 times was about my blog coz i tot my message didn't get posted and the last one was to apologize for posting so many times... Now anyone who sees her tagboard is going to think i'm some psychopath whose main purpose in life is to tag her blog or i'm some desperate idiot advertising my blog or having Tourette's Syndrome and clicked the publish button way too many times... Sorry Vanessa if u're seeing this, it was an accident...


I guess this time you're really leaving
I heard your suitcase say goodbye
And as my broken heart lies bleeding
You say true love is suicide
You say you've cried a thousand rivers
And now you're swimming for the shore
You left me drowning in my tears
And you won't save me anymore

Now I'm praying to God you'll give me one more chance, girl

I'll be there for you
These five words I swear to you
When you breathe
I want to be the air for you
I''ll be there for you
I'd live and I’d die for you
Steal the sun from the sky for you
Words can't say what a love can do
I'll be there for you

-I'll be there for you (Bon Jovi)

Just had a short rest after coming back from choir practice in school... Gotta go back to school in less than 2 hours, to warm up and prepare for performance in MAWAR tonight... dunno what occasion we're singing for... was so tired after practice, the stupid organizers were really irritating, first want us to sing a song we don't know, then letting us sing Muhibah Medley... At the raptai just now told us to sing Johor Seiring also, as if we can sing just like that without practicing it first... Haihz, we are humans, not robots, somemore doing it for free and without dinner...

Wanted to blog yesterday, but me brothers were using the laptop... Hmmm, seems like they use it more often than me, without even asking my permission to use it, coz my laptop is faster than the desktop and better to play Warcraft (what is it with guys and these sort of games?) with blah blah blah... must set new password, so they cannot log in... Muahahaha.... Haihz, not that evil lar, just gonna put it somewhere, where they cannot find it ...

So happy, tomorrow can go out and watch movie!! Gonna celebrate Stef's birthday in City Square tomorrow, watching "A Lot Like Love" starring Ashton Kutcher and Amanda Peet... seems pretty interesting, but can't really say till i've watched it... Got Physics replacement in the morning though, have to wake up bright and early... Haven't gotten prezzie for Stef, dunno what to buy... Also have to get a gift for Sarah and Colin but have got no idea what to buy at all... Lousy friend i am, don't even know what my friends want...

NO TUITION TODAY!!!!

Am in a very very good mood today as can sleep in till late since got no Physics tuition in the afternoon... Have to replace on Tuesday though... So it'll be double tuition for me on Tuesday, Physics and Accounts... But Fangi says wanna have birthday celebration for Stef on that day too... Haihz, what to do? Split myself in 3 maybe? 1 to go for tuitions, 1 to go for gathering and 1 to stay and home and watch TV so i can replenish my energy while having fun... Good idea?

Have received complains from people who found it very difficult to read my posts as the colour i have chosen were too light, so am going to use only dark but not dull colours for my posts as not to cause any Permenent Eye Damage (PED in short) to anyone... Feel free about commenting on my blog by sending me a e-mail at chowxin_yu@hotmail.com (no creativity, i know) or posting a message on my tagboard (this way, i can improve on my blog AND have people tagging my board!!)

Got my camera back already, all fixed... Was actually ready to be picked up last Sunday - one day too late, since i needed it for the 80th Anniversary Concert- but we were i KL at that time... Then had lunch at Taman Molek, which is where the Canon shop was... Reached home around 1.30, so had barely sat down before had to leave for tuition in Omega... didn't have time to do my Chemistry essays after all, so wanted to do it while in BM tuition but the irritating clerks kept checking on us... One was tapping on the glass pane and asking us to pay attention and copy what teacher wrote on the whiteboard when he wasn't even doing anything!!! I think somebody needs glasses...

Dad wanted to bring us out for bowling in Leisure Mall, but me didn;t feel so good, so stayed at home while the 4 of them went out... Went online without their knowing, since Dad accidentally clicked "save password" when typing in the password for me to go online previously... Then watched TV when they found out i was onlining for very long... watched the last episode of this Hong Kong drama at 10 then some variety show hosted by Jacky Wu coz Kenji was one of the guest stars... haha, seeing a cute guy before going to bed helps me sleep better...

Woke up with a blocked nose this morning, must have caught a cold from City Square yesterday... Apart from that, am feeling pretty okay, since mommy let me skip Accounts tuitiom :) actually I was supposed to go on Tuesday but wasn't back from KL yet, so decided to replace it today, but am not going because (a) am not feeling well, wouldn't want to pass the bug around right? (b) am going to be the only one replacing in an all guy class, i think (c) have no transport coz Lyn isn't going and mommy has to go with my dadda to Holiday Plaza and fetch Xin Kit from tuition... Am now home alone at home (not exactly, since my maid and grandma are downstairs, but one's taking a nap and the other is to stay by her side) so am very very bored as there are no interesting shows on the telly and i still cannot sign into MSN Messenger to chat with me friends...

Yesterday had to attend English tuition in the morning (which teacher herself almost forgot about) before heading to City Square for a movie... Teacher sent us (Tasha, Fangi, Mel, Ai Kim, Wei Ling and me) there since she had to fetch Eva from school anyway... So had to wait in school for about 10 minutes while teacher went to get soething from the office... Decided to book tickets first before going there, so Wei Ling made the call, but noone picked up, got her soooo mad... but in the end we got the tickets for the 12.45 Madagascar show then went downstairs to McDonalds for lunch... But didn't have time to eat there, so we smuggled the food in Melissa's bag to bring into the cinema where we met up with Kysha... The movie was very funny, the penguins were very cute, and also the squirrel-like creature...


After that we went roaming around the place, led by Tasha who didn't have any idea where to go, so anyone who saw us going down and up the escalator must have tot we're very "jakun", never visited City Square before... Met Vanessa and Cornet at the music shop, where Vanessa knocked over some guitars thanks to I-cannot-remember-who, and also Lloyd and Leon who had nothing to do and too much money to waste... (BTW, Lloyd is currently out with my brother and friends watching a movie he watched yesterday, further proving he has too much money)

Out of a sudden Tasha decides we should take a photo thingy, thus making us fork out RM 13 each for something we didn't want in the first place... I, for one, am against the idea of spending so much money on one picture when i can take a lot more pictures using my digital camera for much cheaper, but got forced into it... Look so blur in the picture somemore, such a waste of RM 13... Then saw Nick there, who was to catch a movie with his sister's friends who were yet to arrive... so the 6 of us went for afternoon tea in Secret Recipe (only 3 were having something to eat, the other 3 were just staring) After a while he had to go off to meet up with his siter and friends, then took the shuttle bus to Leisure Mall to watch the movie... A bit weird, if you ask me...


After deciding there was nothing left for us to do in City Square, Fangi and I went to Tasha's place while Mel and Kysha went home... Watch some TV there before going home, where i took a shower, had my dinner and went out for my second movie of the day... Dad brought Kit, Wei and I to watch the final installment of the Star Wars series... Was on way back when i caught someone wearing the 80th Anniversary T-shirt so was like "hey, that's the crew T-shirt for my school..." before noticing it was Tabitha who was wearing the shirt... A bit slow, i know, but i cannot help it... Turns out Evelyn's mom had brought Evelyn and Tabitha to watch Star Wars also and that they were in the same teather as i was. but i didn't know they were there and vice-versa... Went home around 10, then Dad taught us this Japanese number placing puzzle which id very popular now, called Su Doku or something... Tried one of the puzzles and got so addicted I didn't realize what time it was until I looked up at the clock and was like "Wah! 11.30 already!!!" and realized i missed my show (some Hk show, and not Eye for a Guy 2) sigh... Then went to bed dejected as the episode i missed was very interesting, according to the synopsis on 8 days, and also because i remembered, 3 hours too late, that the first episode of Charmed season 7 was airing that day...

I so need a secretary... Anyone up for the job?
