Looks like someone has not given up on me

How's my favourite fellas? I guess no one will really come here anyway after the long silence, so I don't really know what to feel when CY gave me something that was chiak pa boh su zor. Keke! Anyway, here goes.

5 things in my bag:

I don't really carry a bag to anywhere except maybe for gym. I know! Such an anticlimax, but oh well.

5 things in my head:
  • This actually reminds me of a blonde joke Alexi told back in RMC. It goes something like this:
A red-hair, a brunette, and a blonde were facing God. They had to speak in front of a mirror which was able to detect any lies told, and if it did detect a lie, the person would vanish in a puff of smoke.
So the red-hair went first. She said ,"I think I am beautiful." Poof! And that was the last of her.
When it comes to the brunette's turn, she said, "I think I am hot." Poof! She met the same fate as the red-hair.
It's finally the blonde's turn and she said with confidence, "I think...." Poof! and she met her smoky end.
  • All the new animes screening in Fall 2007- which one to watch? As usual, this season offers a whole range of genres, from yuri to horror. I am eyeing on Clannnad, KyoAni's only offering for this season. Also previewed a few slice-of-life animes and expectation is high on the esteemed studio. A good harem or slice-of-life anime always makes my day. Which reminds me:

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya will have a season 2! Wohoo! Let's all rejoice like Konata! Moving on..

  • A British comedy I just watched, called Hot Fuzz. Recommended to those who need a good laugh.
  • There is an ACCG353 test sometime next week. Not sure when, so gotta check.
  • Econ335 test I just sat for a few hours ago. It sucked, but I don't have to lay my hands on microfinance again.
5 words I frequently use:
  • please
  • thank you
  • bitch
  • hawt
  • dude
among other things...

5 recent smses received
  • From Carol, who I havent met for awhile. It's funny cuz I have been thinking of calling her, but this morning she sms'ed me instead. Haha!
  • Also from Carol.
  • from Alicia, about going to gym at 7.30 and reminder to sleep early. Haha, thx.
  • also from Alicia, about something random.
  • from Yeelin ,about dinner.
5 recent things I just did:
  • Sat for Econ 335 test.
  • Went to Chong Wen's. Stayed there watching Chong Wen and Victor playing God of Wars challenge and ate there.
  • Went to Macquarie Centre just for the sake of going there - the result of being housebound for days.
  • Printed my notes.
  • Went to Trafalgar Pharmacy across the street for lozenges.
and a lot of sleeps in between. Haha. Sick eh su...

I have a big wardrobe, so this is the place most of my stuff ends up in.
  • Clothes, like duh!
  • Part of my skincare products
  • Hair products
  • A stack of magazines
  • Miscellaneous - linens, extra towels, Home Brand toilet paper, medicines, coin storage, shopping bags from buying clothes (recycle, recycle, recycle)

could've, should've, would've

New year, new start. That's what they say. Maybe those are just words used by optimists to reassure, to attempt not to look back and to just forget what a crappy year it has been. Is it even possible for a change to happen overnight, just like that? What the hell.

Well, the mantra is definitely working for me. Moving into the new (in every sense of the word) apartment just gives me that fresh air that makes me think this year's gonna be so awesome. Summer school is just boring though- 6 hours of class on Tuesdays and Fridays. Same subject, same lecturer throughout. Every lecture is a cycle of : I look at the lecturer - the lecturer looks at me - I look away - I accidentally look at the PRC who looks like Ugly Betty dressing up as a zebra - puke and puke - look back at the lecturer, now talking about his girlfriend.

The only consolation, it seems, is to look forward to retiring at my brandspanking new pad. Lounging on the couch, with the TV remote control in one hand and a bag of chips/hearty homecooked meal in another just makes that grueling day earlier more bearable. Not to forget the warm shower in its full high-pressured splendour (unlike the showers in RMC which streams out in trickles, pressure comparable to the pee coming out of a very very sore urinary organ). Or the healing mattress with pillow firm, but fluffy. Or the...

Haha. Bear with me. While it's true that I enjoy staying here, I have a few regrets as well for coming back a little early. People that I should have met or spend more of my time with. Places that I should have gone, events I should have attended, FOOD that should have been eaten! And a purely evil few person whom I call a friend (you know who you are!) who constantly boasts about all the great time I have missed ( "hey, i went to this this event!! and i met xxxx!! oh damn fun lor, you should have come. padan muka go back so early") just aggravates the feeling.


on another note, this is slightly overdue but as we all know Step into my World/ Storyblog/ Anything and Everything has officially been closed by its owner. It was certainly fun while it lasted and its demise is indeed a loss to the blogging world. As a tribute, the link will still stay, marked by an honorary tombstone. Together, they will serve as physical reminders of what once were.
