all riled up.

some buggers (unidentified. wait till i bump into you one day at the arts canteen.) have ruined my hols. perfectly understandable that the 2 who are down with a rash back out of the trip. but to have 3 others pull out so damn last minute causes deep emotional trauma as the rest of us (all psyched up) are left high and dry on spore. with all plans postponed to the weekend needing to be rescheduled If we decide to leave on friday instead.

RRAA.

well maybe someoneupthere is telling me tt i ought to stay behind and Catch Up on my Studying; half the weekend in a week-long break isnt enough.

anyways, the past coupla days have been fun la. (but i havent had enough!) the lastdayofsch saw a bunch of us tottering about with bowling balls having many laughs at each other's unglam-ness/ (hairy bob's! hahaha.) lack of psychomotor skills.

bowling king
bowling king.

had emergency wedding planners meeting on saturday night, after meeting the hockey capt!, at er gu's where a whooping 5L tub of awfully chocolate icecream sat sweating and bleating at us: Eat Me. haato icecream also fought hard competing for space in our bellies along with other desserts that definitely amounted to much more than dinner.

susu's wedding day was kinda fun and ran much smoother than we expected. as is typical, susu was Still in his pyjamas when ge and i arrived at his place to send him over to collect the bride. chiongchiongchiong. was great to have aunts and uncles rowdily welcoming the bride and seeing a million kisses fly. dinner was a small happyfying affair where everybuddy knew everybuddy. (did i mention that the photographer is bloody cute.)

then the day out in the sun with the meddies..

big splash
'big splash' is right, huilin.

ahh!
see jxywk struggle with all that weight. i hope you and rousan strained some muscles! >.< haha.

xmas is coming.

feel it in ur fingers. and ur toes. and nose.

limply x-ing fingers that i will find myself on the boat to tioman a week from now. x-ing toes -and nose- that weather will sunshiney perfect. and viz like cheezewhiz. and coolio boys like toys.

this happens when u try too hard to be artyfarty and read a book of poems instead of despairingly ploughing though meddie textbooks which are Screaming to be highlighted.

salamander in a styrofoam box!?

itkz's horrified face was priceless. how cheated he must have felt when he gingerly opened the box to see.. spicy FRIES. but the fries -even though cold- were q shiok right, yemily?

to botakjones we must go!

famished after a swim in the sun, (finally) lunch with ge at botak jones was most satisfying. winner will be the man who eats the swankyfranky (it isnt one bit photogenic) in one bite.

aside: i want cuttlefish in a tank in my toilet (ok yes maybe in front of the toilet bowl, sims) in my house in future! jellyfish are a little too.. menacing. bluppblupp. may dreams of jellyfish cheer a friend up.

okaaayyy.

a burnt weekend. was out and scrambling (driving x-country x2) around on both days, but feeling unaccomplished or a word along those lines.

frightfully grumpy. (it's past bedtime.)
i really shouldn't be. was frightfully happy today, catching up with sm girls i havent sat down to talk to in a while.
it is frustrating though, when the right tone doesnt get carried over electronic messages. maybe i should have been born in the days
when the only way to stay in touch was a letter in the mail.
when not everybody drove a car,
when music really mattered and when radio was king,
when accountants didn't have control,
and the media couldn't buy your soul,
and computers were still scary and we didn't know everything.
when record shops were on top,
and vinyl was all that they stocked,
and the super info-highway was still drifting out in space,
kids were wearing hand-me-downs,
and playing games meant kick arounds
and footballers who had long hair and dirt across their face.

dinnered earlier on with dc meddies i prolly wouldnt otherwise ever meet. no table conversation to speak of, not that it mattered; good food cheers everyone up. if food wasnt good, there's still rapheal's endless stream of bloody corny jokes. haha.

a frightful bruise on my cubital fossa, because i lifted my (heavy) bag too soon. freaked out a bit when blood was pooling underneath the skin. with bro-suriya feeling a tad faint initially, today was truly a bad day for blood donation. but mmm.. kfc did sound like a good idea!

axolotl!!

axolotl

fell in love with this fella when i first saw its photo in campbell! and quickly called weili to flip the pages for it.
emotions stirred again when kristanto and sims were discussing quirky marine life + other animals over lunch. they know so much: very very coolio!

axolotl = 'water dog'/ God of Death (Aztec)

Axolotls exhibit a property called neoteny, meaning that they reach adulthood without undergoing metamorphosis. Some axolotls metamorphose, although they do so rarely, and usually only after with iodine or shots of thyroxine hormone. Another method for inducing transformation, though one that is very rarely successful, involves removing an axolotl in good condition to a shallow tank in a vivarium and slowly reducing the water level so that the axolotl has difficulty submerging, and eventually is unable submerge at all; it will then stop using its gills to breathe and use its lungs. It will then, over a period of weeks, slowly metamorphose into an adult salamander.

The axolotl is used in research and large numbers are bred in captivity. The feature of the salamander that attracts most attention is its healing ability: the axolotl does not heal by scarring and is capable of the regeneration of entire lost appendages in a period of months, and, in certain cases, more vital structures. Some have indeed been found restoring the less vital parts of their brains. They can also readily accept transplants from other individuals, including eyes and parts of the brain — restoring these alien organs to full functionality. In some cases, axolotls have been known to repair a damaged limb as well as regenerating an additional one, ending up with an extra appendage that makes them attractive to pet owners as a novelty. In metamorphosed individuals, however, the ability to regenerate is greatly diminished.

will kristanto smuggle one for me please!

wah, like wedding like that!

m2s at wedding

waves of cars set off from the carpark and adjourned at miramar hotel for the eat-till-you-need-to-stuff-charsiewbaos-into-teapots/smbuddy's-bag (sorry!!) dimsum buffet. food was okay only la but the rowdy (think yamseng) company was good fun.

prawning is un-girly?
it is q q fun! therapeutic after a hectic day (which i didnt have) i guess. i need to calm down and be quiet. sims is king. but ningyan hooked a mother giant tt looked like a lobster!

should have cooked my 4 small prawns for dinner. substandard fish and chips (kai's is 10x better haha) in a most claustrophobic corner (i really shouldn't be the one complaining) but again, company was happyfying.

and jennie's flown off.. thanks babe, for that immensely cheering call! iluuu. awaiting more eggciting stories!

TGIF!
already craning my neck looking for next friday. it's the hols!

-----

when you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue
for all my life

me and you and you and me
no matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
the only one for me is you, and you for me
so happy together

life is the bubbles.

dnd was a lot wilder this year, with insane m2s livening up the atmosphere on stage. no one is more deserving of medicine ball queen title than construction worker ra with her sizzling hot moves. bloody hilarious. and of course she had to be paired with a royal ass, strong man abintan. :). missed the live performances by the other lbbc members, wld have had tears streaming ("rivulets"!) down my cheeks otherwise.

i wonder if mysterious stains will be uncovered. run, saus, run. run away with slippers and a pillow. hahaha.

very sweet of auntie zaithun to have me over for lunch, yumyum. reminiscent of sheila's-mama's. sedaaap.
have learnt a few more malay phrases from cikgu bra. most striking of which has got to be bodoh machum biskut. yes, as stupid as a biscuit.
