And another one

If you are one of my few loyal readers, you should have realized that i've changed my skin. Again. Decided to change it because:
(a) i was bored
(b) i didn't feel like doing my bio assessment practical write-up though i have to pass it up tomorrow
(c) i saw a skin i liked
(d) i like to torture myself by editing my template over and over again till i get fed up and start all over since at some point everything goes haywore thanks to a single bracket
(e) celine said i should (and i felt i should)

As you can see, it's another one of those anime-ish skins. i like pretty anime characters on my log, sue me. i like this one, the girl looks so innocent there sitting down waiting for someone while the creature next to it is offering her a nice shiny apple... YUM... did you notice the hole in the tree stump she's sitting on? saw it and suddenly thought of the home of the two beavers in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe...

Everyone in college is preparing for the Charity Drive fair tomorrow, which is from 10.30 to 2 int the afternoon... Still have classes to attend before that, though all classes are cut short to only 30 minutes each... my class planned to go down at 8 to set up the stall after taking attendance in our first class, like the other classes but NOOOOOOO, Mr Yap decides to squeeze in a lab practical in that half hour for Chemistry... Doing a practical on identifying organic compounds, some of which stink. Literally. Then Mrs Kalpana too decided we don't need 2 hours to prepare our stall so we are fully prepared by 10.30, so there goes the 8.30 to 9 am period... So our ever so nice class rep suggests some people from our class come to school at 7 to set up the stall and start selling forms to our guessing game... and he had to say: "People staying at My Place, can come right???" so if i go i'll look like a zombie, but if i don't i will end up looking like some selfish brat... what to do??????

thanks to our planning in advance for the charity drive, we've already earned a lump of money for the drive... Which we got through the basketball competition and our selling of fruit punch, which we forcefully pushed into the hands of our teachers, friends, acquantances, and people we don't know... Only have guessing game at our booth tomorrow, where people pay RM 2 for a form on which they fill in the answers to the 5 pictures of places around the college... Grand Other prizes include USB hubs, screen filters and optical mouses... Good right??? Even i joined, since i'm not involved directly in the prize is this webcam, which yours truly also wants... preperation of the game and noone told me the answers...

Hope i win!!!

Alright, today i will follow in Wei Yi's lead and introduce to everyone my new favourite songs!!! Not!! People about to press the close button on your Internet Explorer of Mozilla Firefoz, relax... i will not be so mean as to torture you guys with my favourite songs as some of you just might die from overexposure to "cheena" music... haha, one man's meat is another man's poison... or something like that... dunno how to put it here on my blog anyway, unless i use hanyu pinyin, which will probably get people falling off their chairs trying to decipher...

Wanna officially thank Wei Yang (not to be confused with Wei Yi) for fixing my apartment's wireless modem (although he had something to do with it not functioning) and also repairing my wireless card so i do not need to connect my laptop to the modem, instead i am able to access the internet on my laptop from the comforts of my room! which is where i'm typing this post from right now... anyway, thanks Wei Yang!!!!!

it's already the 28th of March, which means Cel's gonna be back in like 3 days!!! bring out the champagne!!! wow, can't believe i've survived close to 4 months in college already... but i guess i'm having it easy as compared to those who went abroad, since i'm only 3 hours away from my family, plus i've a group of friends here who've been with me since my JB days... and new friends of course... so i won't be bored or lonely when looking at the lovebirds a.k.a Dee and Andrew...

miss everyone so much, esp Cel, Fango and Jayne, the 3 who went far far away, leaving us behind... Cel's forgiven since she's coming back soon, and wil try and come up to SJ to see us... Fangi's kind of forgiven to, since i get to chat with her almost everyday... Which leaves Jayne, who only sends an e-mail once in a blue moon, and doesn't check anyone's blog then accuses us of not keeping in contact with her... Jayne, if you see this, tag my board so we know you still remember us k?

Again, just crapping

Pizza!

Today was a pretty interesting day, for someone like me anyway... Only had 1 actual lesson today, which was English where teacher was teaching us about Issue Analysis... During Physics we had to attend this talk about Modelling Metals using computers, supposed "cutting-edge" technology of which i have NO interest in whatsoever... Maths was just doing revision, teacher didn't start on a new topic, so i was listening to my MP3 while doing the exercises... Had break after that, then LAN class, where i was busy solving the Sudoku puzzle in today's newspaper, then had no other classes, coz Chemistry teacher was on leave (can wear sleeveless without jacket!) and Biology teacher was down with viral fever...

Went to Pizza Hut today with Dee, Andrew, Wei Yang, Yueen Mun, Esther, Chin Ying, Ren Ee and Zhi Ven... ordered two set meals so we could all have 2,3 slices and the guys could have 4 or 5, but in the end 6 pieces of pizza kena sapu by ZV, along with 2 bowls of soup, 2 pieces of garlic bread, 2 cups of Pepsi... yours truly here felt sick looking at him eat, since i was right in front of him... Then the guy comes and IMs me at 6 pm saying he's hungry... When i mentioned my appetite has been disrupted thanks to him, he asks whether i could pack my dinner in a tupperware and bring it for him tomorrow... God, i'm speechless... Episode 2: Breakfast at Nur Ameen's tomorrow since we've no Chemistry in the morning, we're meeting up again...

Deadlines for drafts are coming around the corner, arggghhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! So much to do, so little time...

Heard this song when watching "10 Things I Hate About You" and i absolutely love it... It's the song performed by Letters to Cleo on the rooftop of the school at the ending...

I want you to want me
I need you to need me
I'd love you to love me
I'm beggin' you to beg me
I want you to want me
I need you to need me
I'd love you to love me
I'll shine up my old brown shoes
Put on a brand new shirt
Get home early from work
If you say that you love me
Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you cryin'
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you cryin'
Feeling all alone without a friend you know you feel like dying
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you cryin'
I want you to want me
I need you to need me
I'd love you to love me
I'm beggin' you to beg me
I'll shine up my old brown shoes
Put on a brand new shirt
Get home early from work
If you say that you love me
Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you cryin'
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you cryin'
Feeling all alone without a friend you know you feel like dying
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you cryin'
I want you to want me
I need you to need me
I'd love you to love me
I'm beggin' you to beg me
I want you to want me
I want you to want me
I want you to want me
I want you to want me

You Know It's Not Your Day

Finally got internet in the apartment yesterday, i was so excited to finally be able to go online and not be left out in the lives of my good friends whom i can only contact through MSN or e-mail, or a tag on the tagboard of a blog... There's SMSing too, but it seriously costs way too much for me to keep using, i'll be bankrupt in a week! Bought the external LAN crad for my prehistoric laptop so i can access the internet through wirelss connection... My dreams came crashing down when i switched on my laptop after having dinner and i couldn't go online anymore!!!!! Suay betul! Can't get it fixed till next week coz the guy is away on a trip in Sarawak, unless my laptop suddenly decides not to torment me and magically fix itself, chances of which is very very very very very very slim...

After a week of lazing around, it's back to college! Sigh, the holidays were definitely not long enough... Applied for the scholarship offered in college, managed to get 6K knocked of my fees, which is much more than i expected... Will only get the money at the end of the year though... There was an engineering fair in college today, though i didn't go check it out... Heard it was pretty interesting though, stuff like potato cars and love meters where you hold the hand of someone (preferrably of the opposite sex) and some wire which connects to the meter which beeps, the higher the intensity of the beeping marking a strong feeling towards the person... Wanted to try it out with Ren Ee, lol! Wonder what's the scientific concept behind it though...

Came across this joke in this complimentary copy of a magazine being distributed in college which states that 'Engineers are the Best Boyfriends' because they are rich enough, always try to please and understand us, are too busy working for affairs and are too dumb to lie to us... Supposedly a law graduate will only argue with you, and lie to you about everything, while management graduates will control our money and cheat us out of it, arts students flirts around and medical school graduates will treat you like another cadaver they come across in work....

Damn, maybe i should have gone for that engineering fair after all...

Holidays? Yeah right

Some kind of holidays this is... for the past 7 days i've done nothing but sit at home almost the whole day, except the occasional outing which usually don't end up worth going out for in the end (read: SPM results day)... Well, except the day Xuan Hao decided to buy me a drink at Coffee Bean in Plaza Pelangi where we exprienced the uncle-sitting-at-comfy-chair-eating scenario again, just like the last time he bought drinks for me and Celine at Starbucks where we uncovered something very interesting... Basically i've been stuck at home this whole holidays, and i've barely started my work... I know, i know, the procrastinating gene seems to have resurfaced yet again... aybe it's the air con but i'm finding it real hard to wake up in the morning, like i do in KL... I'm always setting my alarm to ring at 8.30 am just to wake up at 8.27 to switch it off and go back to sleep till my mom finds it outrageous for me to still be sleeping when it's past 10.30... hope this habit only exists during the holidays or else i'm going to be late for classes when i get back...

alright, i'm not going to bore you guys with a list of the work i'm supposed to complete before the holidays are over... So let's just sum it up: A WHOLE LOT to do... Maybe the definition of homework to teachers is different from that of students... Ours read: A time to drop all books, jump into someone's car or a vehicle and go somewhere to have fun. Teacher's version: a period of time these hooligans i call my students will be having fun while i'm stuck at home marking papers and taking care of my kids, also on holiday and having fun... No wonder why they give us homework, might as well torture us since they're suffering no? then we badmouth our teachers in front of our parents, they complain to the school, then the teachers get more work, we get more work and the vicious cycle goes on... Of course not all teachers are like this, some don't have children. Or a spouse. Or a partner. Poor people...

I'm crapping already, so you guys can see just how bored i am...

There goes the rewards....

Okay, so i didn't cry, but i wasn't jumping for joy either... Got 9A1's, an A2 for Biology, which i fully expected, but what i didn;t expect was the B3 for Moral... Moral!!!!!!!!!!!! I memang bermoral, but get like this, haihz... looks like it is the tak bermoral ppl that get A1s, which is like only 2 in the whole school, the rest being a2 and below... Tot i'll scrape past with an A2 but now my cert is stained with a TIGA B there next to PENDIDIKAN MORAL.... Hate the subject nope,lar, not like you actually learn how to be moralized by memorising moral values, which we just spit out onto the test paper... Anyway, it's over already, no point crying over spilt milk no? easy to say, hard to do...

Was supposed to go out to CS with Tasha, Mel, Archie, Michelle and Jasveen but didn't feel like it after the results... Just suddenly thought of how nice it would be if Celine and everyone of my close close, close until cannot be closer friends were here... felt kind of left out when i was there waiting for my results, seeing all these people i don't really hang out with, with these people i never spoke more than 3 sentences to on a good day... Of course there were exceptions, like Tasha, Archie, Mel and a few more, but it's different without Cel's laughter, Fangi's sarcasm, Jayne's whack, Lyn's fist... so in the end i got Mummy to fetch me, she brought me to Holiday Plaza for lunch so i could have lunch while she went to buy her foreign movies... went shopping, bought a pair of kitty heels (these are shoes, Nick) and 2 skirts from Applemint plus some other stuff, but i dun think anyone is interested in knowing, i'm not...

Love my 2 brothers, i have to say... Wei was like, it's just moral (which is a lot from this guy whose quota of words a day is less than the words in a sentence uttered by me) while Kit, the boy that he is started saying how moral is useless and not taken into consideration by any right-minded people and so on.... At least i have the support of my family right? I'm pretty blessed... moreover, mom's still gonna buy me a new handphone...

SPM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, it's less than 12 hours till Judgement Day, and everything i've said before has flown out the bloody window. I have to say this: I'M SCARED WEI!!!!!!!!!!! Scared i don;t meet the expectations of those around, scared i'll dissappoint myself, scared Mrs Koo will look at my results before handing it to me and just saying "I'm so sorry dear". I will probably start screaming, or faint, or do one after the other... It doesn't help my family have been placing bets on my results which goes like this:
(a) Kit - 2 bucks on 6A1's 4A2's and 1B3 (geez, thanks for so believing in me man, lucky your pillow's already thrown away)
(b) Wei - 5 bucks on 11A1's (now you can see why i prefer Wei to Kit right? love this brother of mine...)
(c) Mom (yeah, i know!) - collecting bets from those 2 - she bets on 9A1's and 2A2's
(d) Dad - didn't dare ask what he wants, maybe 11A0's
(e) Me - of course hoping that Wei wins bet, but i'llbe happy enough with 9A1s and 2A2s already... think that's most probably what i get, the A2s being Biology and Moral... funny thing is i now find Biology the easiest subject in college, maybe due to the teacher and it being in English...

Things i'll do if i get good results: (i swear i'll do all these)
(a) buy Mr Chua a hamper, which i promised him last year to give him if i get A1 in Physics and Add Maths
(b) get a calling card and call my friends who are abroad, which are Celine, Fangi and Jayne to talk to them
(c) go out and enjoy for a whole day with my friends
(d) do my holiday homework when i come back

Things i'll do if i get bad results: (i swear all these will be done)
(a) cry in front of everyone
(b) cry when i call and tell my mom, dad, relatives
(c) call my friends (within the country) and cry
(d) receive phonecalls and cry
(e) watch the news and cry when they mention SPM
(f) read the newspaper and cry when they mention SPM
(g) go to sleep and cry
All these provided my mom hasn't murdered me...


Dun think i'll sleep tonight...

It's great to be home

Was gonna blog last night, but yours truly was swarmed with conversations the minute i came online, popluar me... Hehe, just kidding! Most of the conversations went like: "so, are you back in JB already?" even though all these people knew i took a flight back here the night before, plus it was on my MSN personal message. But apparetly noone bothers reading it.... Still waiting for all the invitations, people... You guys are supposed to be welcoming me!!! so i'm just back from a city here in Malaysia, unlike others who got to go abroad and go shopping for boots that cost 299.95 bucks, but still...

Definitely great to be home, that i can say... home is where the maid family is, after all... No laundry, no ironing, no waking up at 7 to get ready for classes, no climbing four flights of stairs to reach class only to realize Desiree has forgotten her lab coat, or wonder whether the candle has been put out in the apartment when there was no electricity... It' s all good :)

Would post some pictures, but in my hurry and excitement to get home i forgot to bring my cable home, which means i can't transfer the pictures from my camera to the laptop...you get the picture (no pun intended). Will do it when i'm back in my apartment (i sound so old and independent), we should have broadband there by the time i'm back, fingers crossed... Hopefullly i'll get a new laptop so i dun have to buy the card to attach to my prehistoric laptop which weighs twice as heavy as Desiree's...

Yikes, in less than 20 hours i will be getting the results to my SPM examinations... Not really thinking about what i'll get, dun wanna jinx it... Haven't had any dreams about it either, thank goodness... Just gonna go in there not expecting anything, so i might be pleasantly suprised... got this from Grissom, since i'm the CSI fanatic around here.... Can't believe we're already getting our results, seemed like just yesterday Lyn, Fangi, Mel and I were getting drunk at Celine's mansion, or gossipping and reading 8 Days when we were supposed to be studying Add Maths... Shucks, miss Celine and Fangi a lot... Of all people to go abroad it has to be these two.... Jayne too, which is even harder to track since she has no blog, no pictures on friendster, only an occasional e-mail on what she's doing...

Can't think of what to say, so i'll just entertain you guys with a funny story which happened to me (thanks to my loud and very clear voice)... It was Wednesday morning, if i'm not wrong and we were doing nothing in Physics class coz teacher was in front checking our sources one by one... Started discussing the love lives of our classmates (as in the LAN taking gang) especially Wei Yang, since Andrew told his story with Desiree on Monday during yet another boring LAN class... Was asking them which base they got to, then ended up having to explain to Zhi Ven the bases in a relationship, kind of difficult coz the dude doesn't know nut about baseball, the basketball freak that he is... So there i was going on about petting (which i had to explain coz he doesn't understand) in Physics class.... when we were finished discussing Ren Ee who was in front with teacher came back and told me she could hear everything i said just now! so embarassing, hope teacher was too engrossed in reading our sources he didn;t hear us... Then Master Fong starts laughing and saying how lucky he was coz he didn;t say anything and how he actually knows everything but was just ban zhu sek lou hu (pretending to be a pig to eat the tiger)... dun blame the guy, i would be embarassed too, to not know these things... turns out every girl discusses the bases thing, and the concept that Cel and Fangi came up with is the same everywhere in Malaysia, lol!

Sunday, March 05, 2006

Okay, this time i'll blog really really long, i pwomise... Have tons of things to write, so i'll break it up into sections:

A) Phonecall with my mom
Okay, this one is really unexpected, especially by Fangi and everyone who cannot imagine my mom telling me such things... here's an excerpt from our conversation:

Me: Hey mom, i'm not going to Gu Ma's house this weekend. I've community service on Saturday and Yuan Xiang's buying me lunch Sunday afternoon
Mum: Oh, okay... you've known him for a long time, so nothing would happen between you two, right?
Me: Of course nothing will happen! He's totally devoted to Denise. He calls her like everynight just to talk.
Mum: Really? What about you? Call anyone?
Me: No money to call lar, with the limited allowance i get
Mum: Nevermind then, keep your options open....
Me: No 'shuai ge' in Taylor's la...
Mum: I'm not saying Taylor's, I'm saying next year when you go over to Australia, then can find... Can find tall one, short one, thin one, fat one!
Me: But i'm not there yet, am I? There's only 10 guys in my class of 31, out of which only 5 are Chinese... Out of the 5, one's got a crush, 3 are taken and the other is gay (not to mention a jerk!)
Mum: Haiya, then go see see look look in other classes!
Me: God, they're worse than the ones in my class (those i've seen anyway, either not up to standard or taken)
Mum: Then tahan for one year, then go to Australia and find!

God, i love my mum.... My housemate who overheard the conversation was amused and shocked i talk to my mom this way... Hehe, that's how close we are!

B) Fong Zhi Ven is a Jerk
This guy you guys have heard of from my past blogs as a gay basketballer whom i bully in class... I now have something else to add - jerk... this has to do with the 3 on 3 basketball recently held in my college, under my class of G1 to raise funds for the charity drive... Master Fong here was supposed to be in charge of the competiotion, but very very nicely pushed all the work onto my other classmate Ren Ee (my neighbour cum "husband")... Alright, maybe he did SOME work, like 15% tops... all the work he made Ren Ee do, just so that he could join the competition himself, plus a 5 on 5 on the same day at another venue... Smart no? Cept all of us had to go for community service on that day, and couldn't be around for the competition... So basically every single person got pissed that day (and the days before) thanks to this guy... I would tell the whole long long long story if i could, but i'm lost for words when it comes to this irresponsible jerk with an EQ smaller than his shoe size guy....

C) Lunch with Yuan Xiang
Was supposed to go to Sunway Pyramid to meet up with Yuan Xiang, who decided to buy me a meal after knowing me for 8 years but the pile of homework awaiting me forced me to move the venue of our meeting to a place much closer to home. Read: Asia Cafe. The lucky guy got away with just treating me to a bowl of Pan Mien and a glass of lime juice... Wanted to make him treat me Kim Gary's, sigh........................... Anyway, ended up talking from 1 till about 3++, with the addition of Nicholas and Tasha... Nick was taking about buying Yvonne something when i realized these 2 guys know just about nothing about brands, judging from the blank looks i got from them when i menioned the DKNY fragrance and Tommy Hilfiger True Star perfume... they even believed Tasha when she said that Burberry was a condom brand!!!! LOL, can't believe these guys...

D) Community service at Sekolah Sri Garden
Went for our first community service session at Sekolah Sri Garden (Taylor's sister school) on Saturday... Sat next to Wei Yang on the way there, who was trying to remember the way there so he wouldn't have to drive all the way to Subang to catch the bus with us... this guy really reminds me of Xin Wei, with the low voice and the I-can't-be-bothered attitude... At least this fella can hold his head up when talking or facing someone of the opposite sex... Hopefully my brother can grow out of his shyness and be able to have a decent conversation with someone who isn't one of his Scrabble, chess, and PS2 playing friends... Anyway, we reached the school to find everyone already there waiting for us... proceeded to show the Taylors volunteers the aerobic routine we came up with at midnight the day before... The kid i was with was really really really quiet, plus she wouldn't draw when i asked her too... So saddening... i will not be dicouraged though, am gonna get her to open up to me next time i'm there...

alright, that's all for today....

Shortest Blog Ever

Gonna make this a really short one:

FONG ZHI VEN IS DEAD

will explain next time, now using Ren Ee's laptop
