A new step in life: University
Sunday, August 11, 2013 | Posted by En | 0 comment/s
Tomorrow's a brand new day.
Tomorrow is going to be a step in a new direction.

Through the camps I've attended, I've met some friends and lecture buddies.
Tomorrow, it'll be a showdown.
Things are going to change, and I'm unsure of how it will be.

Nervousness, worriedness, excitedness, everything all rounds into one.
How will it be tomorrow, I wonder,
On my first day of university.

{{ SOW }} 30/7- 3/8 + FIC + Flag Day
Monday, August 5, 2013 | Posted by En | 0 comment/s
SOW = Science Orientation Week.
It's definitely official. I had gotten my Matriculation Card and I'll be majoring in...... Applied Maths/Statistics! (still undecided in the actual major. :P)

I had gotten sun burnt after returning from this camp. A 5D4N camp. The first day was quite quiet and contained. The last day ... heck care. *laughs*  


Day 1

Meeting of new people/friends. 
Ice breakers / Dry Games.
And the dreaded mass dances.
As an OGL doing the dance, I could be more hyper than the me actually learning the dance because I had no practice at all! Difficult to follow the steps, let alone remember them!

Now look at my blur face. 

Day 2

Wet games day. So chio sia~~

Whereas I was standing under my self made shade while I watched others play. I was tired and hot. And fat, by the L mansize of my shirt -.-

There were also new experiences in this camp for me. SP. Secret Partner. It happened at night. Blindfolded, the girls sat down first in a row. We wore tags with our "names" on them.

Yours truly :)

The next day, we got to know our SP. Haha. Damn awkward at the first moment but after thattttt......
M I N D G A M E S .  I have found myself to be madly in love with mind games, and playing them with others. It's definitely a great way to kill time and a great way to break the ice!

A few games I have learnt just in this camp:
- Light bounces
- Maa maa jumps over the wall
- Cut a string into half
- Johnny Woosh
- Open or Close
- Sofa cannot touch, Birds can touch
- Using the hand to ask a question



DAY 5 


Tis was the day the Xu Lao Shi cheer went totally viral throughout the whole camp. 

 ❤ XU LAO SHI!!!!!!! cheer    

 Thanks to the singlet that they gave, my shoulders are painful. Got a dark colouring about my limbs *peace* Haha.  
But I'd also gotten a sun burnt patch on my shoulderS.
Beach day on the last day

The finale on the last day. Few songs by a very talented NUS band. The two singers voices were very nice. Well sounding and deep.
Found a random clown nose in the hall, which by the way, reminded me of my primary school hall. 
Small, cramped and with thick white lines about the hall.
"Assemble and quickly sit down!"
Primary school days. So nostalgic. 

And even after the SOW, there's still more! The Freshmen Inauguration Ceremony (FIC) where the desserts were just super delicious, a whole world away from the bento in the camp.
The XU LAO SHI cheer. OMG. I love that. It's definitely viral. If the cheer was pasted on Youtube..... WHAT FUN IT WOULD BE!

And tomorrow will be Flag Day. Another day of photos~!

****

Meeting up @ Macs in the morning = BREAKFAST @ MACS!!
before starting the day off.
7am assemble (supposedly. :P)
7pm end (supposedly. :D)

Sleep deprived after this. 

But it's not over. There was still Night Rider~!

{{{ Movie }}} Pacific Rim
Tuesday, July 23, 2013 | Posted by En | 0 comment/s
It's movie time again!

This time, it's

O.M.G.
It was just SPECTACULKARRRRRRRRR!!!
Totally action-packed with pow-wow! all the way round!

Seriously, the machines used to fight the Kaijus were amazingly H.U.G.E. Fricking hell, I was totally shocked. The head of the machine used to house the drivers were already so HIGH. What's most the WHOLE BODY (with the head)!

And the Kaijus (bad guys). WOW. Look at the digital effects on them!


I got shivers when I saw them appearing. Action scenes were plenty, like droppings of rain. 
They look monsterous, but somewhat beautiful for all their deadliness.  

While watching, I could totally see some references to anime. 
Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Mostly Evangelion. 
Definitely influenced by the series.

Gundam 00

Shingeki no Kyojin

Scary. Scary. But my eyes were glued to the screen.

Refreshingly, there wasn't a strong romance story. Just a light touch (and no kissing kissing.)
It felt as if I was watching an anime movie, live action style.

Wonderfully refreshing. 


A post-chat about the movie.
+
Frolick

And also my own popcorn right from the microwave~


But really, I'm getting the hebby jibbies just recalling the movie.
*laughs*

{{{Adventure}}} MUSTAFA CENTRE!
Thursday, July 18, 2013 | Posted by En | 0 comment/s
My first time actually going there alone (yeah yeah. Give me all those Forever Alone crap because it's so damn true! TT__TT I feel so sad....)

Took a bus and walked only for a while before I saw


Everything also have, 
Anything also can find,
MUSTAFA CENTRE!

Me likes it a lot!

Lines and lines of grocery items. 
So many things to buy!

My shopping basket!

The toilet in the new extension.
SO PRETTY.
Much much better than last time. (toilet freak)

And the lighting is so nice, as demonstrated by the vain self pose above. HAHAHA

After that, I walked. And ended up in front of 

Seriously. I can't even get lost even if I (not) wanted to. 
They're so close to each other! I didn't even need to ask for directions or check the Google Maps. 
 *laughs*
Score 1 for me.

Uniqlo is permeating every new mall in Singapore.
It's no longer fresh & new anymore.

In the end, I'd gotten spices (Indian, duh.), dates & coconut oil for some raw desserts!, snacks and a facial scrub. 
Haha, that was random. -w-

And that was that. A very short trip to Mustafa alone, and to kill time.
REALLY USEFUL TO KILL TIME HERE. It's like a candy land. But you're not eating the candy. You're BUYING THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hell yeah!

Will you still love me. . .
| Posted by En | 0 comment/s
SO.
I was watching the Dream Makers on Channel 8.

And there came the portion in the episode.
The divorce.
Background: 
The husband cheated on her.
She found out.
He stopped the affair.
She kept mum.
She begun compulsively checking his stuff, secretly.
He realised it, but didn't say a word.
A misunderstanding between an innocent third party.
The talk.
The mention of divorce.

When I looked at the scene where she tries to hold back her tears, but failing, I was brought back to another drama The Fierce Wife. The same thing happened. 

And that just punched me in my gut. 
Imagine, a loving relationship of so many years broken because of an act of violation--a violation of trust. Once a trust is broken, it is very very very difficult to be gained back again. What's more is it was between husband & wife who promised to belong to each other till death do them apart.

I admit, I love romance novels; they all have happy endings for the hero and heroine. I love such novels because reality isn't all that blissful. Divorce happens. Cheating happens. 

I don't condone divorce. If the spouse has a heavy hand, I'm not the one saying that it is a must to stay together. Abusive relationships are a definite no-no. But what about when two parties do love each other, but one still cheats?

Would it be considered that the cheater had even loved the partner? It would seem to me that the cheater loves the thrill more than the person. 

It just boggles the mind when the cheating happens and one still decides to stay with that person. If the victim is a mother, there probably can be no other option without the threat of stigma. But still, to stay together, live together and find trust with the very person who had lied, cheated with a third party makes me feel so humbled. Always harboring, always remembering the incident.

If I was in that situation. . . what would I do?
I am unclear. 
With my personality as forgetting but not easily forgiving, I find it a bitter pill to swallow, especially when we would see each other day-in and day-out. Perhaps, just that one time would have poisoned the entire bond that we may have shared.  (And now I'm talking in past tense. Haha..)
Perhaps just once is really one too many time for me. 
Perhaps I would wish we had not married at all.
Perhaps I would even wish we had never met at all.

It just feels so sad when something like this happens.

Round up on Japanese touring for July!
Friday, July 12, 2013 | Posted by En | 0 comment/s
I think I hadn't been talking about this on my blog yet but I've recently been helping out to bring Japanese high school students (just 1/2 years younger than me) about Singapore! Or more specifically, about the areas near Orchard. Hahaha!

Really thanks to Isabel, who intro-ed this job to me and our other Japanese classmates! These groupings really helped/forced me/made me realise how much my Japanese was not connected at all! (>__<) Aw man. I really guess I should buckle up and converse more. *sigh*

This year was the first time I've joined this, but it seems as if it has been held for quite a number of years already. I wonder HOWONEARTHDIDINOTNOTICEJAPANESESTUDENTSCOMINGTOSINGAPOREEVERYJULYLIKEBUCKLOTSOFWATER. How?! HOW?! 
~~*still a little girl in la-la land *~~~

****
My first was an all girls grouping. Very cute!

They all wanted to go to Arab Street for perfume. ARAB STREET?! Mental breakdown. Mass texting to my family on how to get there. Panic button Switched On. Asked random people for directions. Walked. Walked and sweating like a pig. Reached. YEAH!

And when we went there, the store owner knew how to speak Japanese! Charmed the girls *grins* They bought pretty looking bottles and nice smelling perfume. The owner also gave each of us, ME INCLUDED!!, a small fruit perfume: orange, strawberry mix. *Happy* I own a perfume!

We were together almost half the day, brought them to Arab Street, then to Bugis Street where they bought matching Simpsons dress/jacket. Simpsons! I didn't realise that they were cute lol. Bad mouthed, but funny. Sometimes. If I can bear to watch them.
And after a bout of SHOPPING at Bugis and at the supermarket below the hotel (cause we were toooooo early), we went to the meeting point back at the hotel, said our bye byes and TOOK PHOTO as a farewell thingy.

Plus I got a post card of the tallest tower in Japan! :D




****


My second was a mix, girls and guys included.
They are all from the same class, but as we all know, not those in the same class are super close with each other. *cue the sad music* But still, they so shy shy one lor. Haha.
Again, our places of interest was Bugis Street/Arab Street. Brought them to see the mosque at Arab.


I didn't realise we could go in at all! But it was only when I saw Isa and she standing outside the mosque that I got informed. Haha, I also brought them to the perfume shop, JR Aromatics, as I did with the previous group but the interest was really really diminished. Perhaps the store didn't capture much attention for them (I went to a different store with the same name. There are 3 stores in Arab Street having the same name. OMG That just totally boggles my mind!) or perhaps perfume shopping wasn't on their itinerary at all. :{

Oh! I had also brought them to try Yakun Toast. We ordered Kaya toast + Butter & Sugar toast. The rest like the Kaya, only 1 person liked the Butter/Sugar combi. :D He likes sweet stuff.
Anyway, after that, we went to eat dessert (Snow-flake desserts) with a mix of Chinese dessert paste @ ChinaTown and they bought some souvenirs at the stores there. We ate lunch at the hawker centre on the 2nd floor. Then we went back to the hotel. I only had them for 4 hours?
The guys were coooooooooooool. The girls were cute! But I still feel a bit bad because they didn't buy a lot (>=>)

Reflection.

****

The 3rd was from an all girls' school. So needless to say, mine was all

かわいい でしょう?!Their uniform are soooooooo cute. Much better than ours lol.
I bought them to buy some snacks and souvenirs @ (you guessed it) Bugis area. We didn't eat lunch together because they were going to eat when they met back at their meeting point, which was Ion. So I was just bringing them about see her and see there.

Still not really much on scenery-looking though.

We spoke mainly English, cause that was what they were wanting to practice on. So, English it was.


 ****

And today was my 4th time attempting to be a better guide (still not really reaching there yet though).

Today was a 6 hours of let's-bring-them-about-under-the-hot-sun-and-let-them-complain-and-after-that-treat-them-to-our-cold-blast-of-air-con!
So after meeting them at the hotel lobby,

where all the guides walked into the ballroom filled with tables of students and we lined up to like "collect our food" haha. We made our way out with our own groupings. Mine was all guys. :P
This time round, there were more guys than girls in the trip so that was why. 
So first up was Chinatown for some serious SOUVENIRS shopping! Then cold dessert. They like the mango and ichigo ones. *peace sign* 
After that, when the clock hit 12pm, we hit Bugis Street to do some shopping. Howeeeeeeeeever, Bugis Street was always catered to females. Guy's clothings......well, there wasn't much. 

And along the way, I HAD LOST 2 OF MY MEMBERS. I.was.seriously.freaking.out.
What if they kenna abducted or something because of their cuteness?!---That thought was thrown out as soon as it got in. But where could they have gone?! So I walked the 1st floor few times. OMG IT IS A MAZE. I felt like Roronoa Zoro. (>;;<) Then I went up to 2nd floor. Then 3rd floor. NOPE. 

And when I met up with the other 3 people, these 2 popped out of nowhere. LIKE MAGIC. Seriously. 
I wasn't mad. I wasn't even extremely worried. I was pissed. I was pissed at myself being so COCK-EYED. How on Earth did I not manage to spot them?! Grrrrrrrr. In their hands spotted a new plastic bag too. (=.=)
But after all that walking, I NEEDED TO REFUEL. No thanks to the Crepe shop at 1st floor that tempted me each time I walked by while searching. I'm still waiting to eat a creeeeppppppeeee.....
Ate at Bugis Junction, by which I found they all ate the Japanese style of hot-plate noodles. Not really adventurous in food eh.
Got time to kill, so we walked about Bugis+ and entered the arcade while in the midst still searching for Men's clothings. Haha, I think it was out of luck for them to have a female guide.



We played Air hockey! I won a match, and was real close to winning another. :P 
It's been a long time since I'd entered an arcade. I was surprised they even walked in and took a look inside. 
Then it was nearing time to go back to their meeting point. Brought them there and took our pictures for memories.


****

How did I feel about the past 4 tourings?
- Need to really adapt where I should bring them
-Need to improve my Japanese!
-Need to let them try new food
-Need to know more places where Guy's stuff are being sold. *laughs*
Even with the other small troubles, I still think it had been a worthwhile experience to try and look something in my country with a different pair of eyes and to have a (sort-of) cultural/language exchange.
Of course, hopefully by next time, I should be fully prepared and not being in a panic mode on where to go and where to do at where.

Peace.

VASSALORD HAS AN ANIME!
Or OVA to be precised.
When I saw it on Feng Xing, my nose bled. 
And when I watched the OVA, I just went to heaven.

The anime was nicely done!
Fast paced and about 3 chapters were squeezed into a 25min episode.
OMG, I LOVE THIS.
Totally love the style of the anime + manga.

I am really hoping that the anime goes beyond OVA!


Never seen/read this before?



Hpmh. Fools.
Master's allowance for you pitiful fools.
{{ MANGA }}
But only He can save you.

After getting comments about

But change to what?

I just can't wait to use it!
It looks super pretty and slim. :D
A woman's wallet!

Hint: I found it in a pasar malam.

Cheap cheap!
Being only $1, were you shocked?
Haha, for it's price, the quality is good. 
Going to bring it out as much as possible.

Cockroaches
Thursday, March 14, 2013 | Posted by En | 0 comment/s
Tis the bane of the human life.
Not greed, not vanity, not narcissism, not bees, not lizards, not ants but cockroaches.
Cockroaches.
Is there any one in the entire world (who is sane) that likes or even remotely are neutral to them?!

I hate them with a passion.
Those wriggly feelers and black almost indestructible bodies that have to be whacked several times 
in order to kill them. 
Gosh, they make me have goosebumps. 

Shouts in our household whenever the black thing appears.
The worst part when our hero is not there to kill them 
is when there are flying cockroaches about. 
Flying. 
And those small baby roaches.

I want to shift to a higher level!!
Living on the first/ground floor is torment for me and mum and bro.
Avoiding that area until our hero comes back home.

Am I going to grace torment you with a picture of it?
No.
You should thank me. 

I just hate them with a passion.
Some would say hatred is because one has loved another before but make no mistake,
I do love.
I love for them to die out.
