Hahas, today was kinda fun!!! Though I felt bit weird during maths. 0.o

Making onde onde on (say that real fast!) Friday morning. Gonna buy all the ingredients on Thursday after school, make the dough at night and cook it at Jessica's place on Friday morning. Let's just say I have a sudden craving for it. Heh...*laughs like witch..eeehhhehehehe* (sorry, spastic YX working up again)

Never made it before but I guess it's a little like "tang yuan" (glutinous rice balls) cause it's almost the same ingredients for the ball, but not the filling. Hopefully I can get all the things I need. 0.o" Gonna make about 40 of them...*faints* hopefully it's enough.

-hopefully, it turns out looking something like the imge above...>.<"-

ARRGH, my iPod AC charger that I bought here died! Neh neh!!! 1+ (almost 2) months only!

English draft due one Friday, along with Physics assignment 4. Hap hap happy!! I miss my happy bubbles!!

Okay, I am gonna become retarted retarded soon.

Whee! Sorry for the lack in updates.

Watched Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End !!!!! Dang, it was good! Watched it with Jessica, Emir and Devia! Me and Emir liked it but Jess and Devia didn't. Joe watched it and said he almost fell asleep at some parts. I did fall asleep (almost) but it was still good cause I looove Jack Sparrow! He is so freaking cute, how can you NOT like him?

Anyways, we fooled around South Bank after the movie. Photos anyone?

Emir, Deva, Jess, Me
Bought a trench coat on Sunday to keep me warm. Cost me like $48, original price $78. WAHAHA. Damn nice, but the leopard print so...freaking ugly, but since people will only look at the outside, whatever lah.

Wore it to school today. And some were like "Wah..nice!!" then during lunch. Joe said I like "Ba Zhang"! #!$!#^%#!^%*^$@ Then he was like "Actually she normally very 'miao tiao' one, but today 'bao' till very big." WTH!! But then it's like teasing so yeah, nevermind.
Then he suddenly go like "You know how to make Malay Kueh?" I was like "What kind?" and he was like "I dunno, I just wanna try." (I only know how to make ondeh ondeh ((sp??))) So I was like "Ask Kin Fatt" and Kin Fatt tell him to ask another guy and that guy was like "You want kueh ar?" Joe was like "ya" then the guy was like "Okay, come, go toilet!" 0.o"
Siao people in IES!!

Came back today and there was a "roaring" fire in the fireplace!! Damn cool! Sat there like damn long, I like staring at fires, they are cool!! (Sorry, I know I am contradicting myself)

Scared myself shitless today. Well, of course I don't mean it LITERALLY LAH! >.>
I tried to turn on my iPod, and it just wouldn't boot! But I remembered I charged it last night, so it can't be that the battery is flat. In the end, when I plugged it in my laptop at night, it was because the battery was flat. !@$!#%!#^@^!^%">!

Had Bio test this morning, guess it's gonna be okay...bah.

Cya guys!

YAY! Mum agreed to let me go to Taiwan with my friends during the end of the year. Will probably go back to Singapor for about 2 weeks then go to Taiwan! ^^ Maybe I will end up spending X'mas in Taiwan. Who wanna join me?!

Will be paying for my own expenses and half the plane ticket, mum will be paying the other half of the ticket. ^^

Gave my lunch away again today. Ended up buying some weird satay chicken triangle that tastes nothing like satay. Bleeeh!!! Should have never trusted the names of the food here. Wanted to buy sushi rolls, but they didn't restock it today.

Mum and Dad in Malaysia now. 0.o"

Hmmm...Nothing much to update. Gotta do Biology and Physics homework.

Headed to the city with Jessica, met Joe on the way and waited for the LATE BUS AGAIN. But decided to walk in the end. Kinda fun, and cause me and Jessica are kind of wanting to go to Taiwan like end of the year, so I was like:

Me- "Eh, Joe, end of year will you go back Taiwan?"
Joe- "Yea, if I get my UQFY cert, I will beback there, y?"
M- "Yay! Cause me and Jessica are planning to visit Taiwan end of the year."
J- "Oh, can, can stay at my place."
M- "Really?! Cool, then I dun need to worry about accomodation."
Jessica- "YAH! Then I can stay at the Taiwan peoples' house that were in my house as homestay last time."

Me and Jess- XD XD

Hahas! I wanna go Taiwan!! Too bad Hans is in camp.

Yang Hao= Tau Huay w/guy

Hahas! I love love love it!

Oh and the other day, cause Joe called me Ah Cho or smth, and it meant like great-great-great grandma. So I was like "You Ah Pek lah!" and he was like "My surname is Lin, and Lin Bo is?" And I was like..."Lin..Pek?...LIM PEH?" 0.o *faints* He older than me!! T.T

^^ Just took a quiz.

You are a Dreamer

-Your combination of abstract thinking, appreciation of beauty, and cautiousness makes you a DREAMER.
-You often imagine how things could be better, and you have very specific visions of this different future.
-Beauty and style are important to you, and you have a discerning eye when it comes to how things look.
-Although you often think more broadly, you prefer comfort to adventure, choosing to stay within the boundaries of your current situation.
-Your preferences for artistic works are very refined, although you vastly prefer some types and styles to others.
-Though your dreams are quite vivid, you are cautious in following up on them.
-You are aware of both your positive and negative qualities, so that your ego doesn't get in your way.
-A sense of vulnerability sometimes holds you back, stifling your creative tendencies.
-You're not one to force your positions on a group, and you tend to be fair in evaluating different options.
-You have a strong sense of style and value your personal presentation - friends may even seek your style advice from time to time.
-Generally, you believe that you control your life, and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you.

You are Benevolent

-You are a great person to interact with—understanding, giving, and trusting—in a word, BENEVOLENT
-You don't mind being in social situations, as you feel comfortable enough with people to be yourself.
-Your caring nature goes beyond a basic concern: you take the time to understand the nuances of people's situations before passing any sort of judgment.
-You're a good listener, and even better at offering advice.
-You're concerned with others at both an individual and societal level—you sympathize with the plights of troubled groups, and you can care about people you've never met.
-Considering many different perspectives is something at which you excel, and you appreciate that quality in others.
-Other people's feelings are important to you, and you're good at mediating disputes.
-Because of your understanding and patience, you tend to bring out the best in people.
-You're not one to force your positions on a group, and you tend to be fair in evaluating different options.
-You have a strong sense of style and value your personal presentation - friends may even seek your style advice from time to time.
-Generally, you believe that you control your life, and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you.

Some are true some are kinda true. ^^

Sorry ya peeps! I have been kinda busy this week.

Stayed over at Jessica's place yesterday night. Missed the last bus home so I just stayed over. Had dinner of diluted koka noodles with egg, sausage and carrots. Watched Life s Beautiful (in Italian), Curse of the Gim Huay and Pan's Labrynith. Fell asleep during the last one cause I watched it before and cause I was freaking tired. Slept at like 3am and woke up at 9+, lazed around, took the 10+ bus home, showered and went back to the city to watch Spiderman with them.

Yea, I know I said I am not gonna watch it, but it turned out quite good actually. Sat beside Emir, and it was so funny! It's like we have random comments and are on the same vibe so we catch each other's jokes. Then when we saw the venom we were like "woooo" and like made spidey actions with our fingers. XD

Had dinner at the Japanese place again! Had Tenzaru Soba and Shiori Sushi (sp??) which was tempura with soba noodel and a white fish sushi. It was goooood. Then we were like "Emir! Una don is eel with rice, cause don is rice and UDON is noodles, which is what Jessica is having." Cause he thought he was supposed to get eel with noodles or smth. XD Super fun. Then we stayed at the South Bank riverside for quite a while cause it was quite peaceful and the river is really nice!! Like the city was at the other side and then the bridge and everything, I only wished I had my camera with me. (Which I would do next week, so I can show you guys) Talked for a while, walked back to the city and then I went home and Emir sent Jessica and Devia back to foundation House before coming back down himself to catch a bus home.

So yeah, that's about it. Will update tomorrow!!!

Sometimes...evangelists piss me off. BIG TIME. Now now, before you comment about why evangelists are good on my tag or anywhere else, let me tell you, I don't give a damn whether I go to heaven or hell just cause I don't believe in a certain religion. I have my own, and I am happy with it. Well, I am not talking about all followers, just a selected few. ^^ For example the ones on Orchard road. But I ain't in SG now, so whatever.

OH. There's a new girl in my homestay, she moved in yesterday. She's from...SINGAPORE. Wahahahas, a year older than me, studied in SFMS (St. Francis?) and now she is here. Glad to know 1 more Singaporean here. ^^ She's staying with her mum till tuesday cause her mum is going home on wednesday. She's a nice person. ^^ And there are like 80 students in this year's May batch, I think there will be quite a nuber of Singaporeans cause the A level grads would be here around this time, and also this year's O level grads, the ones that didn't make it in time for the Feb standard group, prolly joined the May express.

Today's Mother's Day! Called my mum, grandma and aunt to wish them Happy Mother's Day. Why my aunt? Well, I am used to it.

That's about all for today's update. Dumb Chem test tomorrow.

Just to let you know, I am back on blogskins, after being MIA for 3 months or so. Well, check this out HERE.

That's about it for the update then. I am freaking pissed at people telling me to blend blend blend. Everything needs to be blended? Then what's abstract, where's personal style? DEAD AR? @!$!%#@$^%$&@&!#%&%^* I didn't even think about blending this in the first place. Like wth...

I guess we should stop deceiving ourselves.
Accepting the truth should be an easier way out.

I know it kinda sucks,
but thats just the way it is.

In fact, I don't miss you as much as I miss others
Even though that's not the way it should be,
It is.

I miss alot of things, but just...
not much about you I guess.

So many people left behind,
how many actually keep in contact?
Or try to for that matter.

Things said out of politeness is totally different
From things said from deep down the heart.
That's commonly known, but I can tell the diff.
Can you?

That's the question but not the point.

Heya! Sorry for the lack in updates. Been busy this long weekend. Today was a holiday cause of may day/labour day here.

Let's see, I had like 4 invites to watch spidey-man 3. And I was like "NO!!!!!" cause I ain't interested in spidey, I only like batty. =P

Spent the whole weekend playing NFS:Most wanted. Started on Saturday or Friday, and now I am like at number 7, waiting to defeat number 6 and move on. I want that guy's gallardo! Then if possible get murcielago or smth like that, I am sory I canoot spel.

Just finished maths homework and am about to sleep. Totally forgot about Physics, but no matter, I can do that tomorrow afternoon, and anyways, it's not like homework, I just need the practice. Have to practice maths too. Me hate GrApHs! (I love to act like a twit.)

I see that Hans got his present though I am pretty sure it's not him that was telling me on msn cause:
1) He doesn't use "hihi" (which guy does, except for....nvm)
2) He won't say "I loooooove it. Thank youu so much" (he hates double lettering and looove is so wrong when he uses it.
3)He says he not in camp cause it's his b'day and got off. >.> -.-" Was around 8-9pm, SG time sunday when "he" talk to me...

OH heck, as long as it arrived. Then I gotta send back the mother's day gift on Wednesday, in time for Sunday.

Anyways, time for bed. Nights ya'll. Sorry bout the feats, been lazy busy.

Sometimes people piss me off, but I gotta pretend I don't cause...I am a freaking coward. XD...

I guess we are all different and only my friends back in SG and some here are able to think as I do or even have similar thoughts. Though what I find out is that, Malaysians, SG-eans, Indons and taiwanese like to hang together. WE STICK! XD

Well...PEOPLE IN SINGAPORE, learn to appreciate food back home. My verdict here is that you gotta really PAY for quality food. But sometimes, you PAY, and the food sucks, even more so at chinese resturants. Now we know why SG is a food paradise. And I am like the only one that misses the food back there cause Jessica doesn't really miss the food at all. 0.o"...

Anyways, I am having a looong weekend as monday is a public holiday. Still can't get over the fact that ALL SHOPPING MALLS are closed on public hols. Like wth. It's not like the shops are closed, the damn mall is not even open, and they have like those roller shutters down. -.-"...

Let's see, things I gotta do:
-Maths test on Friday.
-Maths homework...
-Chem test on next next monday.
-Chem Assignment 4...or issit 5? Hmmm...
-Physics revision QNs.
-Send Mother's day pressie and card.
-Check if Hans recieve his present and card.
-Pay Rent.
-Buy cheap bag.

I AM never ever gonna get a bag from INK again EVER. Everytime I get a bag there, it's always the zipper that has a problem. The last time, the "tab" of the zip broke. NOW, the whole zip CAME OUT. WTH...

Me misses:

The normals
The fun...

Closer and closer or further and further?
Does it really matter?

Well...Not to me I guess.

As long as you are happy, everything is dandy.
Even if I ain't in the picture,
I really needn't be.

You gotta agree.

Things change,
people change,
I do understand,
if we are no longer that.

Betcha wondering who you are?
Ain't gonna tell no one at all.
