random update

Pretty free this week, since I've no practicals to attend and no tutorials this week. Pharm Chem prac is online, study/free for Med Chem prac and I've already done my Physiology presentation hence no Physio prac too! 24 hours cut down to 12, whoopee! I now have the hours of an Arts student. Just this week anyway.

Totally settled into life on the 2nd floor of Wadham now, and loving it too! Anytime I'm bored I can just pop into Gary's, Liwen's or Boom's room just to see what are they doing (playing WOW) or have mini activities like the Harry Potter reading group we had, or pizza nights, which we haven't had since Semester 2 started, hmmm... Or I can go up to 4th floor where James, Jac Kee, Jiapei, Lu Xian, Andrew and Howard are, although I've only done it twice. And all this can be done while wearing shorts and just a T-shirt, no having to put on several layers just to go see someone, whee!

Love my room, and I'm in the midst of personalising it now, with pictures up on the wall, and my various lecture, practical and tutorial timetables up on another, which usually puts people in a less happy mood when they see it. Scenery's pretty good compared to my old room, except it faces the apartment of the Head of College, which means no loud noises too late at night, not like I do that at anytime anyway.

My extremely full cupboard

All my timetables, sigh...

My study desk, though I must confess, not much studying is done on it.

Bed + Shelves!

Boxes for hidden storage and all my files.

Finished the last book of Harry Potter! Borrowed the book from Luke after he was done with it, so I started slighty later than the rest, but happy to say I finished before most of them, since the guys were too busy WOW-ing as usual. Finally come to an end, a bit sad though, since Harry, Ron and Hermione are characters we have grown up with.

Last Saturday night was River/ Booze Cruise (theme: Superheroes) for CIA week in IH. Yours truly didn't go for it, since she's saving up for her VCP ball (99 bucks, wth...) . Quite a few Homer and Bart Simpsons, a whole group of Sailormoon girls, 2 Ghostbusters, a Bob the Builder, Mr and Mrs Smith made an appearance as well as Dobby the house elf, who was Boom though I reckon he would have made a terrific Sanosuke, except none of them know Sanosuke or Rurouni Kenshin. Another activity we had throughout CIA week was Assassins, where everyone gets a contract which tells you who you have to kill.

James as Dash from The Incredibles

Boom as DOB-BY.

What's a superhero party without BATMAN?

He should have gone as this though, or so I think.

Dash, Steve Irwin and Agent J from MIB

Emo Bob the Builder

Proctologist by day, ASSMAN by night!

Our Assassins contract. Didn't get to kill my target though...

Winter Dinner in 2 days in IH. Will absolutely post up pictures!! Oh, and Allied Health Cocktail Night for Monash Pharmacy and Melbourne Uni Medicine, Optometry, Dentistry, Physiotherapy and Nursing. Not too sure if I'm going yet, although it's next Thursday.

Made lamingtons in Monash last Wednesday for Global Friendship Night, this thing held by VCP almost every Wednesday to get us to make more friends and interact with people from other years. Lamingtons are basically sponge/butter cake dipped in chocolate then covered with dessiccated coconut. Sounds yummy? Of course it was. It is my personal and highly agreed opinion that chocolate makes anything good! Or better anyway. There were quite a few of us, so we had this production line to make the lamingtons, 4 or so in charge of each part, chocolate coating, coconut coating and making the chocolate.

Making the chocolate

Lo Yi posing with the chocolate. He didn't make it though, I did.

Mixing chocolate with icing sugar.

Our production line.

Dipping butter cake in chocolate. Yum!


Finished products!

Enjoying the fruits of our labour!

Very very long post so Mom should be happy, since she's been complaining that I don't update...

RANDOM FACT: I joined the choir in secondary school after hearing their rendition of 'If We Hold On Together' but throughout the 5 years I was actively in the choir, I never learned that song.

不能说的秘密 - 周杰伦

冷咖啡离开了杯垫
我忍住的情绪在很后面


拼命想挽回的从前

在我脸上依旧清晰可见


最美的不是下雨天

是曾与你躲过雨的屋檐

回忆的画面
在荡着秋千梦开始不甜


你说把爱渐渐 放下会走更远

又何必去改变 已错过的时间

你用你的指尖 阻止我说再见

想像你在身边 才完全失去之前

你说把爱渐渐放下会走更远
或许命运的签只让我们遇见

只让我们相恋这一季的秋天

飘落后才发现这幸福的碎片

要我怎么捡

expectations

I remember there was this one episode of CSI where Grissom was talking about how he doesn't have any expectations. If I'm not wrong, he said something like "I don't expect anything, so I'm never disappointed. Instead I'm always pleasantly surprised."

You know what? I agree with Grissom. No expectations, no disappointments.

great weekend!

Been a busy weekend! Met up with Tasha, Wei Yi, Mel, Lyn, and Jayne who just got back from UK in City Square and celebrated Wei Yi's birthday, silly girl almost started crying in Sushi King when we told her the cake we had with us for almost an hour was for her and not Tasha's brother, lol!

After lunch was picked up by Mom and Dad and the 2 boys, and headed to Vivo City, Singapore. All 3 of us fell asleep in the car, lol! Went shopping with Mom while the guys headed to a bookstore (of course) to spend their time. Bought a dress for 19 dollars, yay! Fresh oysters for starters, followed by lamb chop, yum! Came back to watch Gasquet vs. Federer, as well as Williams vs. Bartoli.

Woke up early this morning to take family photo in studio. Whole family photos, as well as individual photos for me and Mom. Managed to wrap things up fast although I was so sleepy, didnt manage to fall asleep till 2.30 am this morning.

Dinner at Meishan in Mutiara Hotel to celebrate Mom's birthday which I will not be around for in August. Grandma's treat, hehe!

Waiting for Wimbledon Open Men's Finals: Federer vs. Nadal!

Photos will be posted soon, as soon as I find my cable. Too lazy to move from sofa, and Federer is coming on. LOL!

Me Vs. The World - Halo Friendlies

Hey boys, hey girls
Hey anybody who will listen to me
In case you haven't noticed
It's just me aganist the world today

I fell out of the wrong side of the bed
And landed in the worst mood
With that stupid alarm clock screaming at me
From across the room

I'm trying to be nice
I'm trying to be reasonable
But it's oh so hard when I don't wanna be
If you're looking for that nice girl
From the day before
Don't bother, she don't live here anymore

Cause it's me against the world (Oh what a stupid day)
Yeah, it's me against the world (Just stay out of my way)
And in case you haven't noticed
And in case you haven't heard
It's just me against the world
And the world is winning

You should have let me stay in bed
I've got this pounding in my head
No nothing's ok
Won't you stay out of my face today?
I'm slamming doors
I'm slamming phones down
Watch out for
This temper tantrum
Stay out of my way
Cause if you don't, you will be scared away

I'm trying to be nice
I'm trying to be reasonable
But it's oh so hard when I don't wanna be
And you're looking for that nice girl
From the day before
Don't bother, she don't live here anymore

Cause it's me against the world(Oh what a stupid day)
Yeah, it's me against the world(Just stay out of my way)
And in case you haven't noticed
And in case you haven't heard
It's just me against the world
And the world is winning

I'm gonna be impossible
I've gotta tell you I'm seeing red
I'm gonna be impossible
I've gotta tell you I'm seeing red
I'm gonna be impossible
I've gotta tell you I'm seeing red
I'm gonna make you believe what I said
I'm gonna make you-

Cause it's me against the world(Oh what a stupid day)
Yeah, it's me against the world(Just stay out of my way)
And in case you haven't noticed
And in case you haven't heard
It's just me against the world(Oh what a stupid day)
Yeah, it's me against the world(Just stay out of my way)
And incase you haven't noticed
And incase you haven't heard
It's me against the world
And the world is winning

life

sometimes i don't know whether i love my life or hate it. i have a great family, i have tons of friends, and a bunch of really close ones whom i can talk to all day all night. i'm taking a course i actually like in university, i live in a great place. i'm not awfully disfigured, i'm content with how i look. i have everything i need, i have almost everything i want. still......

sometimes i feel lonely, i feel down. you might be too busy to talk to me, and i feel you're avoiding me. insecure? definitely. sometimes i wake up in the middle of the night and feel that there's no point in living anymore, then i go back to sleep wishing i don't ever have to wake up again.

sometimes i feel like i don't know anything.

sometimes i wish i didn't know anything.

sometimes i wish life was simpler.

love song for no one - john mayer

Staying home alone on a Friday
Flat on the floor looking back
On old love
Or lack thereof
After all the crushes are faded
And all my wishful thinking was wrong
I'm jaded
I hate it

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
So tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
Get here

Searching all my days just to find you
I'm not sure who I'm looking for
I'll know it
When I see you
Until then, I'll hide in my bedroom
Staying up all night just to write
A love song for no one

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
So tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here

I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
Could I have missed my chance
And watched you walk away?
Oh no way

I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
Could I have missed my chance
And watched you walk away?

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
I'm so tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
I'm so tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here

You'll be so good
You'll be so good for me
Oh You'll be so good
