The rules:-

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules. *fangi*
2. List eight (8) random facts about yourself.

3. Tag eight people at the end of this post and list their names.

4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving them a comment on their blogs.


(i) I am deadly afraid of heights. Like even standing on an escalator scares me sometimes. Don't remind me about see-through lifts!

(ii) I have neat handwriting, I like organizing my notes, I'm one to follow the rules almost word for word.... (is it any wonder why I'm secretary of the student club?)

(iii)....yet my room is never ever tidy.


(iv) I love the thought of wearing sky-high heels but given the money and opportunity I wouldn't actually wear them.


(v) Even though I'm addicted to chocolate, I'm more of a savoury person than a sweet-tooth person.

(vi) I like walking around bare-footed. Like in the dining hall where I stay, even though I'm fully aware the floor is wayyyy dirty and the lady-in-charge will scold me in front of everyone if she catches me.


(vii) I can't ride a bike, nor skateboard, ski, rollerblade, surf, or do anything which requires me to keep my balance. Yet I can balance pretty well standing on one foot.

(viii) I like the smell of my bed after I wake up in the morning after getting a good night's sleep. Smells all warm and toasty and like my cocoa butter. Yum.

1. How many children do you want?
2 kids sounds about good. 1 boy and 1 girl of course.

2. What do you want the most now?
For each day to have more hours. 30 hours should be good.

3. What do you want to be when you grow up?
Taller. With boobs. If that doesn't happen I'll be content being an independent woman with a Pharmacy degree and hopefully owning a bistro. Which sells my mum's desserts every Wednesday (she agreed to it!)

4. If you can have one more dream come true, what would it be?
To have enough money to do anything I want, but not enough for me to not do anything.

5. What are you afraid to lose now?
My freedom. And myself.

6. Do you believe in being in love forever?
Why not?

7. If you meet someone you love, would you confess to him/her?
Definitely depends on the situation.
I'll only confess it if I know for sure that it's not just a passing fancy and something definite. Like WY says, timing is VERY important.

8. What would you do when you're feeling down and depressed.
A good cry works sometimes. Or lots of chocolate and ice-cream. I'll call up a friend and ask her to do all the above with me, maybe.

9. What are the requirements that you wish from your other half?
I'm glad you asked! Important points would be that the person must be taller than I am (not that hard to do), have a good command of English, and is able to make decisions and not be all wishy-washy. Also, he has to be filial but not choose his mother over me, kind and generous but not a spendthrift, caring and extremely concerned of my well-being but not give in to me too much, intelligent but not be complacent with it, have a great sense of humour but not try to be the class clown, be adventurous but not unstable, be willing to change for me but not be too malleable, occasionally showers me with gifts, show me lots of affection but not be too clingy, be able to hold his end of the conversation with me but not argue with me. Also must not be any of the following:
alcoholics, workoholics, sexaholics, commitment-phobics, peeping toms, megalomaniacs, emotional fuckwits, or perverts.
Aren't you glad you asked?

10. Which type of person do you hate the most?
Probably people who are too fake ie too happy all the time or act too perfect.

11. Do you cherish every single of your friendships?
I would say yes, although I'm sure I could work harder on some....

12. Do you believe in God?
When things go right I thank him. When things go wrong I blame him but in the same breath ask him for help. So yes.

13. What do you think is the most important thing in your life?
Relationships. Family, friends, etc...

14. Do you find it necessary for you to have a boyfriend/girlfriend?
Seeing as I enjoy the single life, nope. It's something I can live without, though I prefer not to, when the big 30 is looming and CNY is coming around...

15. What do you want your friends to be like?
Loyal and steadfast. Like me!

16. What kind of friend do you hope to be in your friends' eyes?
Loyal, rational, someone they can come to for an opinion. A pure Taurean I am!

17. If you can have a change, which part of your character would you like to change?
I'd really like to be more patient!

18. If you're feeling low one day, who will you go to?
Most probably my besties =)

19. Would you die in order to save the ones you love?
Without a second thought.

20. [My question] What would you be doing differently if your parents did not influence your decisions at all?
Just about the same, actually. Maybe a bit more wild ;p

Instructions: Remove 1 question from above, and add in your personal question to make it a total of 20 questions. Then tag 8 people in your links list at the end of the post. Notify them in their chat box that he/she has been tagged.

Congratulations! You have been tagged with not one, but two taggies!

Daydreaming....

This was running through my head during Biochem practical tutorial today...

"OMG, Biochem's test is in 8 days! I have to start study ASAP!
Hey, my nail polish is chipping, I knew I should have taken time to apply the top coat.
Biochem test!!!! Okay, don't stress... Receptors, Hormones, Information Flow and Molecular Biology, no big deal...
OMG, I am sooooo f***ed. And I'm wasting my time here cutting sticky ends of a DNA strand of a piece of paper like a pre-schooler.
Hmmm wonder if Faith wants to buy a raffle ticket. Oh wait no, I'm supposed to leave some for Jac Kee...
BIOCHEM TEST!!! 8 days to go!!
Hey, that means my birthday's in 9 days...
OMG, I'm OLD!!!!!!!!!"

Yeah, was pretty bored in the practical tutorial session..

With Me - Sum 41



I don't want this moment to ever end
Where everything's nothing, without you
I'd wait here forever just to,
To see you smile
'Cause it's true
I am nothing without you

Through it all
I've made my mistakes
I stumble and fall
But I mean these words

I want you to know
With everything, I won't let this go
These words are my heart and soul
I'll hold onto this moment you know
As I'll bleed my heart out to show
And I won't let go

Thoughts read unspoken
Forever in vow
And pieces of memories
Fall to the ground
I know what I didn't have so
I won't let this go
'Cause it's true
I am nothing without you

All the streets,
where I walked alone
With nowhere to go
Have come to an end

I want you to know
With everything, I won't let this go
These words are my heart and soul
I'll hold onto this moment you know
As I'll bleed my heart out to show
And I won't let go

In front of your eyes
It falls from the skies
When you don't know what you're looking to find
In front of your eyes
It falls from the skies
When you just never know what you will find

I don't want this moment
To ever end
Where everything's nothing, without you

I want you to know
With everything, I won't let this go
These words are my heart and soul
I'll hold onto this moment you know
As I'll bleed my heart out to show
And I won't let go

I want you to know
With everything, I won't let this go
These words are my heart and soul
I'll hold onto this moment you know
As I'll bleed my heart out to show
And I won't let go

IH Ball

I got lazy this time and didn't bring my camera, so all these pictures were taken of Facebook. Credits to whoever was it who put the pictures up. Oh, and I fell asleep on the way to the after-party so I went home. Lolz! It's not easy having 8.30 - 5.30 days!

study!

“He who devotes sixteen hours a day to hard study may become at sixty as wise as he thought himself at twenty.”

-Mary Wilson Little

Sorry to be MIA everyone, been in the studying mood nowadays (OMG, such a nerd!) so I'm making the full use out of it. I'll be back! Expecting the mood to wane soon..........

Oh, and still no pictures of me with my short hair. Cel's blog does have pictures of her cutting my ponytail off though.

xoxo,
Xin

what's 7 inches long and makes me sad to be without?

Yes, 7 inches of hair has been chopped off my head as of Saturday 5th April. Something interesting always happens on Cel's birthday!! Celine did the honours of cutting my ponytail off for "World's Greatest Shave" as her very unique birthday present. Hair's about shoulder length now, layered so the front is slightly longer (like a bosh!). Thanks to Li-Yen who did an awesome job trimming my hair, so I have yet to go to a professional salon to get it fixed. Might not have to, since everyone says my hair looks good as it is.

Surprisingly the loss of my ponytail wasn't as traumatising as I thought it would be. Which is kind of suprising since I haven't had short hair since I was 10? Not to mention Mum had to pay me RM10 to get it chopped off! Now I'm finding it too long actually, might go get it cut even shorter. Whee! Somehow having short hair now makes me feel more vibrant. Others have also commented that I look younger now (Gee, thanks, I really need to look younger!) and supposedly I look taller now O.o

Remember to donate to my Shave Page HERE!!
You can donate at anytime until the 30th of May, so please help support this cause!!

Did you know?
  • $55 pays for one car to transport patients to and from treatment centres for one day.
  • $100 provides a family with a fully furnished 'home away from home' near a treatment centre for one night.
  • $250 provides a family with a tailored counselling and support program for three months.
I'm aware some of you might not have a credit card to pay it with, so if you're in Melbourne, just pass me the money! If you're overseas, that might be a bit tricky, just drop me an email and I'll see what we can do...

Picture will be posted up soon once I get them from my friends, since I did not get to take any pictures that day...

P.S. KK wants me to specifically mention that he shaved his head too! Others who shaved: Ruvini, Steph Seah, HuiLing, Adrian, James Cheng, Akshat Khatri, Rohan Puri, CK Tan and Daniel Higgins. WOW! That's THREE girls who shaved their heads!!
