wah diarrhea-ed at least 8 times today.
hmm. its such an ugly way to start a post eh. but. today was generally a Bad day, starting with tt terrible tummy ache. (ever gone weak on the erm bowl and panicked like hell for a second tt u might just pass out, and boy, imagine the embarrassment if smone else had to barge into the toilet to revive u?)

studied in sch. did little. grumpily.(i actually didnt have to drag myself to sch with tt (g)rumbling tummy since ms lee was sending my stuff to my home anw. but. i didnt know till i reached sch sweating, feeling feeble, after helping the school-auntie carry her marketing home. which was a nice thing i did right:)

had mjing ben and alvin for company. so i will quit complaining. the councillors fed us q a bit today, what with curry puff and icecream, both which sent me to the loo q q promptly.

but dinner was good, aft i made everyone wait for me. the new noodle stall here has got to be the best in woodlands. and post-dinner food was good too.

pored over old photos!! hahaha. ge looked every bit a toot goon, with his big glasses and stretchy sports jacket. of course i was cute. and brown. then smth happened. and it was my turn to look like a geek. with shit hair. haha.

just 'shouted' at hongking to WAKE UP. shld be telling myself tt. GP is in what, 4 days? and i still cant string intellectual sounding words into profound sentences tt will take the breath away fm my examiners. religiously reading the Commentary will not help right. so i shall not feel guilty for not doing so.

woo. found my relief-pe-teaching partner!-kimchi david! will be great if both of us get jobs in rj next yr.

watched delovely. didn’t know tt it was gonna turn out like tt –more musical than movie, and abt cole parker. it was refreshing. it’s the kind of music tt pa might just like. i didn’t recognize many of the songs but enjoyed them nonetheless. v stirring. like in a musical. and all the songs were abt Love. wow. cole porter was amazing.

cried a bucket near the end. and u’ll say, ‘but’s what new?’ right. if anyth at all, watch the movie to get to the part where cole porter sings a crabby song to chase his friends away. :'( and the part where the cast of the musical within the movie comes out. WOW. oh and of course, be pleasantly surprised by powerful performances by robbie williams, alanis morisette:)

i was kinda disturbed by all the gay-ing though. now tt's why the movie's m18.

yes i watched the movie alone. been awhile since i did tt. sorry jen. but i really didnt feel like talking to anyone. another of my hormonal swings? (plus chem was Terrible for me) but no worries! im back on track, here's to a lovely day by the pool again tmr;) hitched a ride on bean's RC car, grabbed a ticket, got disoriented in cineleisure, and finally plunked myself into my seat, 5 min? aft the movie started. but it's just the satisfaction tt ahh. i made it. i can imagine how :( i wld have been, mooning ard in sch since i dun wanna study, or going for a swim to get hear the lifegueards whistle as lightning strikes.

:( hafta go back to sch this sat to get firefly stuff fm ms lee. was spozed to meet lulu but looks like tts gonna be blasted again. ok i shld stop being spoilt and insisting tt things go my way. sang2 concluded tt i was spoilt (but not rich, i added tt in myself). so i will ruminate on tt and change. but i still thank ge for all the times he's spoilt me (pls cont doing so), and everyone else who has indulged me. sm pple more than others, surely!:)

Let's Do It - (Cole Porter)(alanis morisette)

When the little bluebird
Who has never said a word
Starts to sing Spring
When the little bluebell
At the bottom of the dell
Starts to ring Ding dong Ding dong
When the little blue clerk
In the middle of his work
Starts a tune to the moon up above
It is nature that is all
Simply telling us to fall in love

And that's why birds do it, bees do it
Even educated fleas do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Cold Cape Cod clams, 'gainst their wish, do it
Even lazy jellyfish do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

I've heard that lizards and frogs do it
Layin' on a rock
They say that roosters do it
With a doodle and cock

Some Argentines, without means do it
I hear even Boston beans do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

When the little bluebird
Who has never said a word
starts to sing Spring spring spring
When the little bluebell
At the bottom of the dell
Starts to ring Ding ding ding
When the little blue clerk
In the middle of his work
Starts a tune

The most refined lady bugs do it
When a gentleman calls
Moths in your rugs they do it
What's the use of moth balls

The chimpanzees in the zoos do it,
Some courageous kangaroos do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

I'm sure sometimes on the sly you do it
Maybe even you and I might do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

studman – electrico

cld never recognise ur face
and then u went and took tt away fm me
then u were gone without a trace
i might as well have let u kill me
u see tt guy is probably fm outer space
where ones like us are few

rock and roll (rock and roll)
in his eyes (in his eyes)
they cant see (they cant see)
his disguise (his disguise)

i wldnt say another one was quite the stud as he
valentines, party chimes, girls outside stand in line, to see the man and touch the hand tt drives a white mercedes benz
i wldnt say another one was quite the stud as he
wish there was a way to understand the stuperstud J.C.
you're a studman, yes u are.

this song’s for mo. (how are u? kid tng na!) been reminded of mo by Coach Polar Bear fm tt nine o’clock channel tv serial (more ou3 xiang4 pai4 than closet-auntie) but mo is more stud lar;)

this song makes me nod ard like sm goon. damn nice! v interesting, the ‘rock and roll’ part. i dun understand the lyrics though. j.c. hmm. Jesus Christ? Julius Caesar? wait, i know. Jolyn Chua:)

woah. safra was much more than i expected, esp since the skies were heavy the whole day. swam in the rain again. with jen. she helped correct my freestyle posture. i will practise harder:)

its such a pretty place. there was nice old music (ok, the 1980s and 1990s) in the morning. but when the new shift of lifeguards took over, there was all tt shit mama songs (2003/2004 songs)tt got me crabby. but but! all the lifeguards are so damn friendly! jen: talked to two younger ones after u left, both v nice.

it feels really gd when pple tell u tt u swim nicely. never got tt anywhere else. so it was v wow!:) when 3 lifeguards and a fit friend say so.

jen and i will go back again tmr.

only complaint: food isnt fantastic. yes, hungry hon attacked dinner-in-the-wok an hr before mom says 'eat' with a vengeance.

walked past this old man in the tunnel at yishun. he's damn spunky, dancing and playing harmonica so spiritedly. But. it was rush hour, so everyone just charged on. kinda sad, but well i guess its the same how i walk past the buskers in the bvista tunnel in the evenings, they've become a fixture more than anyth else. uggh. i cant express what i was feeling then. but nvm.

yeah, like sunny, i havent been to sch in a while. yes and i miss "the rubbish-bin-8pm-live-3-on-3 floorball game" in the canteen, as sunny put it so excitingly. miss the guys in sch, i'll go back when the j1s stop having lessons. they clog up the canteen too much for comfort.

ahh. woke up aft so many many hrs of sleep. feeling groogy(sounds nicer than groggy). but its a cold morning. off to meet jennie for a swim! (shes prolly still sleepy, better ans the phone later!) yes girl, i'll be here for u however cliched this mush sounds;)

had a lovely roll-on-ge's-bed and laugh-like-hell talking-abt-everyth-and-anyth session last night. it was bad, with both of us trying to do pushups for a while. i managed two use-triceps ones and collasped laughing, breathing in the dust at his feet. and my bloody retainers dun allow me 'tsk'. hahaha. and i sound like im snorting when i laugh so hard i cant breathe enough.

mm going all out for the local bands. got pug jelly as well. kinda simple plan smtimes, but still. haha. know of this angsty girl who's crazy over them, its q cool, and funny really.

Monday, October 25, 2004

the sun was out but it was raining. and i was swimming. felt damn good! just tt my uniform got soaked! the rain got so heavy the lifeguards blew their whistles. sat ard in the shelter watching Cute angmoh kids killing each other for a while. they are so damn cute.

then went off to meet jen. i sure am glad to see her q alright! i hope she really is though. i dun believe the pain can go away so quickly. and jen is a sensitive girl ok. but she is strong too. jen: u have to be. its such bad timing!

well so i didnt watch delovely (ahh) aft all. will save it for thursday, like laulau suggested. maybe she wld like to watch it w me then?;) see how lar. dun really like planning agenda too early. disapptment is greater when a date falls through.

mm. damn sleepy. maybe weili('s mom) is right abt the swimming pool making u sleepy, whether u swim hard or not.

'talk to the hand!':) woo.


"talk to the hand." dunno why but i found this photo funky.

support local artistes!! was at esplanade fm 6 till almost midnight? last night. caught local acts, a sorta sneak for ‘made in spore’ (which i must watch). got DAMN HIGH listening to the bands live. hirst heard electrico aft dinner, and bought their cd promptly. they are good man. sm songs are q q coldplay keane type. their lead singer looks just like any guy u walk past in the street but hey. He’s got the voice. and slantboy is nerdy but.. cute.

THEN! universal blues came on! got so damn high. i am going to learn lindy hop:) rushed ard aft they played trying to find their cd, and finally approached their band member. shucks i forgot his name (but he asked for mine. *note: to show tt u are friendly, ask for the person’s name, and show tt u are trying to register it. [who catches ‘honlyn’ the first time round!? i forgive him.]) yeah so i am listening to their cd now. its different not-live, but will do. and also, i think the band lineup is slightly different. (no guy in funky pants in the cd.) so sad! tonight’s the last night they'll be playing in a while. i wanna watch them again! they are so damn gd at improvising. i dun believe i havent heard them on monday mornings on power 98? before.

yeah. last night really rocked:) dinner at via mar was gross though. waited so long for their paella (one hour) (waited equally long for the rest of the family to come:()and i discovered tt i wld rather have fried rice (thai by mo, sporean chinese by mom) anytime. service wasnt too bad, just SLOW. just before we left this guy stood at the kitchen door and shouted v loudly tt he was waiting for his calamari;) then olive snapped at the waitress who was so patient w me and cancelled dessert:s haha. BUT! had max brenners oh yumyum. but ok lar. i think i am less a chocolate fanatic now. (though the dark chocolates sold at sebastian's [prolly have them elsewhere but i havent seen any ard] are woo.shiok.)

woo. lindy hop. haha;) then maybe i can finally do the hwachong mass dances with fauziah! without drawing too much groans and laughs.

Friday, October 22, 2004

was just dredging through the mess in my room, trying to free sm space for xiaogu who's staying over tonight. (blah! the bed's spilling over with stuff, there's no space for anyth anywhere.) yeah. got this tacky iron-on fm sir. mm. it makes me feel very 'wow'. :).

Sunday, October 17, 2004

one of my favourite cranberries songs. kinda obsure but ge and i love it:) awawaw!

i can't be with you - cranberries

Lying in my bed again,
And I cry 'cause you're not here.
Crying in my head again,
And I know that it's not clear.

Put your hands, put your hands,
Inside my face and see that it's just you.
But it's bad and it's mad and it's making me sad,
Because I can't be with you.

Be with you.
Be with you, be with you,
baby, I can't be with you.

Thinking back on how things were,
And on how we loved so well.
I wanted to be the mother of your child,
And now it's just farewell.

Put your hands in my hands,
And come with me, we'll find another end.

And my head, and my head on anyone's shoulder,
'Cause I can't be with you.

Be with you.
Be with you, be with you,
baby, I can't be with you.

'Cause you're not here, you're not here,
Baby, I can't be with you.
'Cause you're not here, you're not here,
Baby, still in love with you.

Still in love with you.

i am v Bored at home.

for xhui:)

strangers in the night - frank sinatra

Strangers in the night exchanging glances
Wondering in the night what were the chances
We'd be sharing love before the night was through

Something in your eyes was so inviting
Something in you smile was so exciting
Something in my heart told me I must have you

Strangers in the night
Two lonely people, we were strangers in the night
Up to the moment when we said our first hello little did we know
Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away


Ever since that night we've been together
Lovers at first sight, in love forever
It turned out so right for strangers in the night

Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away

Ever since that night we've been together
Lovers at first sight, in love forever
It turned out so right for strangers in the night

wow. it was farewell assembly last night. and didn’t it just rock, class of 2004?

3f stayed in sch till we got chased out by ms hor at ten plus. no one else wld believe how crazy we were (16 of us stayed!) pelting each other with lightsticks, never tiring of throwing and picking up the ammo. 3 guys got stripped, resulting in bloodshed and terribly disheveled uniforms.

i wish the night didn’t end. or tt we didn’t have to go home, at least for one night. a lot of mixed feelings as usu. i wonder if any of us will eventually harden to farewells, having been through so many already, fearing every time tt things and pple will change drastically. but then again, yes, we'll meet new pple, and experience new things. and then we will be thinking 'wow' all over again.

kudos to the pple who organised the farewell. the awards presentation didnt take too long. but the video show was way too short!! tt the sch actually bothered to get kfc (kentucky fried cucumber for amogh) for was us nice. and the sparklers were.. cute. haha. loved the shooting stars everyone made out of them.

v glad tt i spent the whole day in sch, although i was complaining tt i got nothing done (my own fault really) (and got badly laughed at by amogh - Bah.) whiled away sm time with lee renji (whom ive really only just got to know better, and i will never to cease to be amazed at how amogh and him are such clowns) and the other pple who make sch their home too, played a bit of flrball and hit ard; hockey sticks are so heavy! heh. took many many photos, everyone looked so gd. (shermen looked magnificent in his blazer, if only they let him up on stage!)

mm. john made another of his lovely wow speeches tt drew lotsa laughs. sm things he said hit home though. i myself have lots to say to lotsa pple but it just doesnt come out.

oh wow.

today was a v mixed day.
started out right with finally hearing fm kailun! haha. sure hope he, and all other scholars are adapting well.

ran ard sch. burnt out halfway, but felt much happier near the sch gates, having passed by the ghim moh primary sch field and the kids were having So much fun! with frisbees!

aft hanging out wet clothes, settled down with Big plans to study lotsa physics. didnt only ONE chapter the whole long day. :(. guess the gd thing on the flipside is tt i got to catch up with sm pple! enjoyed talking to them, seriously. like kai. and her big dreams:)

:D. yeah. before i knew it, it was time to march out into the sweltering heat to the dentist. lay prone in tt chair for 2 hrs. but. :D. haha. yes! the braces are Gone! but theres still a bit of glue on my teeth. the squeaking and scratching i had to endure to get the braces out was nerve wrecking. i have never been so tense for so long in my life before. yikes. imagine having to listen to fingernails against a blackboard for an hr. no wait. make tt Ur fingernails.

heard adam sandler's grow old song on the bus ride home. so tt rounded up my day q nicely. oh! and i saw letchmi too. oh! and ms neo ah moi gave birth to Zachariah last night!!

pineapple and lime juice without sugar is good. the canteen auntie kept trying to dissuade me fm getting my 2nd cup cos she insisted tt i wld get gastric problems. but woo yum. reminded me of the bag of unripe peaches in aust. tt ge and i ate anw, twisting our faces, and enjoying every moment of tt power sour-ness.

‘why cant [I] be happy with NUS.’ and u don’t even ask me this qn in person. Henry David Thoreau said: Our truest life is when we are in our dreams awake. it sounds terribly bratty of me to say tt I fear I wont get to live life to the fullest if I stay here. ge, song and so many other friends/family have happily, and successfully completed their education in spore, long renowned in this area. and of course I wont allow myself to lead a mundane life; its all a perspective; anyth can be meaningful/fun just as long as I find a higher purpose to it. but but. of course w me being so terribly hyperactive, wanting to cram More into my life than 16 hrs allows (the other 8 hrs are for my indispensable sleep), it shldnt surprise u tt I Dream of leaving everyth behind for a few yrs to experience life on my own and learn things the hard way.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. (MLK) and The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.( William Ellery Channing) of course, I am exaggerating. ;)

and tt's us! ahh v blurred. but better than noth:)

thought this was quite cool! spot me! (cowering nxt to qq;)

might as well us this to give a name to each of the tan sisters. fm top: bean! baorong! sang2! hon! telle!

us and alfie. last day of sch. koped this off bean as usu. i cant find the lousy hole to plug my cam into (yes. go ahead and laugh at me.) to upload all the lovely pics i took w almost everyone in class! mm. all of us look so happy in the pic! except maybe andy. look at hk!

the tan sisters minus weili celebrating the most romantic chinese festival(to me):maf, at bean's place. yes sunny true to form, is most brightly dressed:) and i am in tt jersey qiqiong was so damn mean (hahaha) abt. my god. i bet eve is still horrified with what she said, so loudly. but tt's qq for u!

Saturday, October 09, 2004

yesterday was spozed to be just a last-day-of-sch, nothing too exciting besides lotsa photo taking as usu, and an evening of sats (pooey), to look forward to aft a long long day of going thru test papers. thankfully the day turned out tons more exciting!!

i got to fly a kite in our sch field/track! during the lunch break just before chem. prac. rocksies. Buddy helped me fly it to the max length of the string! cldnt possibly concentrate in class aft tt. woo.

in the evening.. got damn grumpy doing dreary sats. then suddenly got bloody high I think i scared yingheng and sunny but i felt so.. high. haha. wanted to punch smone, but john was too skinny. vicky is the guy to look for if u are feeling frust. pummeled him but he claimed he felt nothing. doesnt matter what he felt; i felt damn gd! haha. then i broke my promise to myself to stay off all games tt evening. played canteen flrball! w marcus renji’s bro (and me on the chinese team) chetan john and renji (the mama team). john fell on me. my ankle and knee still q fat now :s but it was so damn fun! as usu, was spozed to leave sch by 7, but cldnt bear to leave! so finally cabbed home with sunny. she’s such gd company.

yeah. class was fun. alfie had terrible jokes as usu. we cant decide if yingheng’s or alfie’s jokes are worse. maybe physics was bearable because mr wong only came in for 20 min. mr khoo brought us lotsa goodies to eat! QQ scared the hell out of me asking me to feed her. and exploring my camera (remember the last time we tried to hard to take pics w my phone at dhoby gaut mrt!) with weili was .. fun. haha. but tt’s the last time we will sit together in class, like he said. :’s!!

well prelims are all nicely wrapped up and everyone ard me’s urging me to start preparing properly for the As. cant be denied tt inertia has set in. it’s gonna q a lot to get the engine started again. but! there are so many things i want to do with my life, so i will keep telling myself to get cracking soon.

but before anyth else, ill get back to ‘the Christmas mystery’! been reading q a bit the past week, got thru neil gailman’s new book. it’s terrible. and roddy doyle’s big $32 book. it’s not good either:s

Sunday, October 03, 2004

i just hafta talk abt the past couple of days. friday was 3f day. watched 50 first dates in the aftnn, with the few early birds and cried my eyes out believe it or not. everyone must have thought tt i was such a wooz. i know it’s spozed to be a comedy. but still! adam sandler is so wow.

at night, though the bbq fire took forever to start, it was so very nice to catch up with the girls. played indian poker and had laughing fits of course. j

later tt night, had teh halia extra halia fm adam road. ge has had it four times the past 5 days. had my 2nd cup just now but didn’t get as much kick out of it. but! i started trembling. haha prolly cos i inhaled too much coffee fumes and drank too much coffee just before tt. anw it was lovely to read in tt comfy sofa while friendly pple took turns to sit with me. wonderful how everyone looked so relaxed and contented just to have their aftnn cuppa.

onto saturday. the weather was so gloriously sunny and like i told laulau i was v glad the two of us earliest birds went to the beach first and tossed frisbee to each other till we were red in the face. our attempts at ultimate frisbee left us breathless and bean with a bloody lip, at the end of the day. i threw it into her face. (so sorry!)
