lazy post-CAs days: lectures are a haze; you only remember the brit (love the humour) lecturer cursing when XX brand sales representatives come in to make sales pitches/ when the projection screen goes blank, 'rearrange the following words: what fuck do i do the now.'

tanpohyong is a closet ah lian! and brother susan, is parapara King i tell you! hon provides almost equal amount of entertainment though. (haii.) the saobao and i qie-d veldie's car most cunningly on the roads, and slipped smoothly into a parallel parking lot outside al-azhar, stealth.

parapara fever
parapara fever

holland-ed damn a lot last night, before settling down for dinner by the inviting river. dons is worse with maps than i am! taking off with the salt and pepper shakers from thepennyblack was crazy. a bit of nikhil has rubbed off onto the other eusoff boys! or maybe they're all crazy to begin with hehe.

(f) for me, sweet.

when a guy doesn't have scars, the next best thing is stretch marks.
also, it's ok not to have abs/pecs, etc la. just buy a tshirt with the muscles printed on it. (saw a guy wearing such a kok shirt la! hilarity.)

stopped studying at eleven (am!) today- clocked 3h, well done.. went to collect race pack with a chauffeur leo and bodyguard bobo in tow. a bit disappted that i did not condition myself for the marathon, that i will not be completing it. may i rediscover the zest next year.

in the esplanade library, the sun shone brightly, beckoningly; the librarian limits your naptime. ended up getting distracted by movie tie-ins before a comfortable dinner, which ended a little abruptly. but man, i was exhausted.

TGIF.

someday, i'll wish upon a star,
wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
where trouble melts like lemon drops,
high above the chimney top,
that's where you'll find me.

oh, somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly.

ticktock. when will i break and say the magic words to end the war.

i hate doing things without my parents' blessings.

well, pool session yesterday was funn. after doing cpr&stuff while waiting out the rain, towing tired divers and overcoming panicked ones was oomph, exciting. impressed with ra's stamina in rescuing me, the unconscious diver and going 1,2,3,4,5,BLOW! non-stop even though she was cramping. (she couldnt say The (other) Magic Word this time though!) i roughly shoved the octopus into buddy-aundre's mouth a million times over but he was too nice to only let me know that after 2x the drill. am surprised that he thought i was calm in the water. pretending, trying trying, will be.

sunny called, from miami! it was great to hear her voice, however muffled it was. lovely to hear the stories she had to share :) imuuu.. her research project in costa rica with the monkeys sounds so damn s.h.i.o.k. man.

wuz gr8 to catch up w/ fauzd 2. hAhA.

oh f- it hurts. my fingers are cold and i cant feel my toes. i need to pee.

cool. the rain's just ceased and it's all quiet ('-on the western front'- my god what a dreary book if i rmb right) and i can hear a neighbour strumming on his guitar and singing. damn the motorcycle which just zoomed by.

but i can see you-
your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
you got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
and I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
after the boys of summer have gone

out on the road today, i saw a black flag sticker on a cadillac
a little voice inside my head said, "don’t look back. you can never look back."
i thought i knew what love was
what did i know?
those days are gone forever
i should just let them go but-


belting out songs, crusin' down the freeway (ok, never quite the case, in spore) with ai and ra is always uplifting. and so awakening, what with ra rocking the whole damn car. the police will flag her down one day: junkie suspect.

accumulated a large sleep debt this week, what with rescue dive lessons, night chats and misdials. (grr!) been swing,swing,swing-ing, but generally still happy. (it's hard to be grumpy when i have many cheerful friends around me. like dons who has happy stories of hall life always.)

the rescue dive course has been pretty engaging besides the inevitable draggy theory sessions. but ooh-ahh anecdotes and hands-on and many jokes makes it all so much more interesting. wilson has been incredibly nice about everyth, and today he presented each of us with a personalised weight belt. 'Tan Hon Lyn. Seaborne Dive Team.' coolio eh. sweet. he's been egging me on to complete the AI course; i'd love to. my coursemates are fun (esp aundre sebastian- my god! he's q insane. haha. combined with rousann, there'll never be a bored/quiet moment at seaborne.) and i really look forward to more dives/lessons with them. (such a kiddy statement. but it's true.) feeling a bit festive, after eat-till-you-burst steamboat dinner with everybuddy. sped down the highway in the saab at 140km/h just now: vroooom! haha, fast cars (and bikes) make me laugh.

pool session on tuesday was such a breath of fresh air: we had to rig up and disemble our equipment a few times over while swimming across the breath of the pool in between. it was unexpectedly tiring leh. the most memorable/highly anticipated activity was us descending to the bottom of the pool and removing all equip including our wetsuits there before ascending, then later putting on everything again. flailing arms and (cramping) legs to get out of the wetsuit was a horror, but fun.

floaty, wuzzy from 3h of sleep this morning snatched in between walking ard the house keeping up a semblance of wakefulness before the parents left and i could crash properly for a while. everyth seems flitty and unreal/dreamlike even.

well, family day tmr. i <3 mom and papa. (a sudden overwhelming rush of emotions hoho.)
really glad that dad's liver enzymes are down. hoorah. x-ing fingers always, for seroconversion. and for laojek too.

babykisses and bearhugs.

Zzz..

just as i was telling the saobao tt i will stop blogging -cos it sucks when people know more about me than i know abt them thanks to my verbal/written diarrhea. (see, i choke myself once again.)

but. i am feeling blue today. and the saobao and jen dear can only send me virtual hugs. ilu for that btw. and so i will channel the melancholy into the void. rraa..

hai.

it really wasnt so bad a monday. but.

and the blink!182! (old) boys go:

and maybe i'd impress her
by being in a band and
maybe if i act real tough
she'd let me hold her hand and
maybe i'll win her heart
by writing this song about her

sometimes i sit at home and
wonder if she's sitting at home
thinking of me and wondering if i'm
sitting at home, thinking about her
or am i just wasting my time

TGIF, really.

after the screwed up true/false CAs during which i learnt i have o.c.b.- i had to shade an answer for every question, or feel very uneasy otherwise.

the meddies congregated at vivocity after the papers. wld have much rather we did so at sentosa: a dose of sunsandwater is desperately needed! starting the rescue diver course on tuesday night, pensive. got myself apollo biofins btw, after rouan and i spent a long time pingponging between the different models/brands. (not like uncle john helped in the decision-making! haha.) bcd and octopus/reg will just hafta wait la. pelan-pelan. ..till opportunity next arises i guess.

feeling very terrible about screwing up the dive courses though. indebted to wilson, leiyang and gang.
lack of foresight/ careful thinking/ knowing what i want and working for it.

happy bday, papa.

yes, i do remember my friday evening after all; happyfying tomodaichi to tanoshiku sugoshita. imada watashi no kioku ni atarashii. (= "had a happy time with friend(s). still fresh in my mind." wah, impressive vocab eh.) had very yummy butter ika and saba. oishii! chilled (/froze) at the bustling ps cafe after that. such a beautiful place. surreal. (overused word.)

hola. for now, shinpaisuru hitsuyo wa arimasen ne. alvin-kun's got me psyched abt jap again. time to upgrade!

and thanks to the beachbum/numboy kelvin, i managed to catch the biennale on it's last day. sociopolit exhibits at the parliament house were beyond me, definitely mindnumbing. zooming ard tanglin camp trying to get the most out of the more interactive exhibits before closing time, on the other hand, was fun. i really liked the indoor jungle we hadta climb up a ladder and pop our heads into.

feeling terribly unrested this weekend. the new week ahead looks daunting.

and so it is that i am glad i didnt mumble and slam down the phone/ press the off button (so not dramamama) in the middle of the night (to me!) and we ended up talking for an eternity effortlessly. v(erbal)hugs, my friend! i way overslept this monday morning though. but what luck: the first lecture is cancelled :) mm. who needs to know all this shit.

distinction viva (memory-recall) question, to m2s and m4s both:
Lamina Propria = ?

went down to rsyc yesterday to have wilson explain the path to A.I. (assistant instructor, gasp!) to ray and i. we've jumped into the bandwagon. bumpitybump. first pit stop: rescue course next week. am psyched to do that course; it'd definitely be good to feel a lil more in control and ready/able to handle bad situations. (choy)

good luck, hon. in telling mom and dad ur plans.
i can just see papa in the green vest holding up the red STOP sign.

well,
'TGIAF' -luuu, from a while back. now, that really got me grinning.

saturday's come and gone, just like that.

had a lovely time at hazwani's, sitting in the porch eating yummy food and chatting lazily with the girls. ain came vrooming on her kawasaki, in nice baju, with petrified filzah in tow, woah. it's been more than a year since tinky chanced on me sleeping in the train. was good also to sit down and talk to kai properly. though yem cried. (ok, over sambal.)

i say hello,
you say goodbye.
hello. goodbye. hello!

-------

been laughing lots with the meddies: tsb&co, the past coupla days. thanks for brightening up my days, guys. with lousy jokes, good stories, action. (bish, went chenliwei and his lip bled like a river. poor thing! but. i doubled over in laughter amongst the shelves and chen cldnt help but laugh, very hard, too.) in good company.

arigatou ne, alvin-kun, for the tsunami alert:
'alert takai hito
-just came out of XX and went down-
tsunami warning complete 1515h.'

okashikatta. haha.
