Sometimes I question the purpose of our 3-day in-total-10-hour tutorials,

Which are taught by local lecturers,

While our lectures are taught by OCU faculty.

Usually the ang mohs don't know the local lecturers,

So, tutorials are based very lil' on what the OCU lecturers said.

I just feel like skipping tutorials at times,

But for the sake of attendance,

The sake of just listening and getting in some new knowledge,

I shall persevere and attend all tutorials.

If it's just to add on to your brochures saying that you have:

31.5(lecture hours) + 10 (Tutorial hours) = 41.5 hours,

It's quite pointless.

No point wasting 10 hours of my time which I could earn potentially:

10 hours x S$20 = S$200.

Now who said time is not money?

My Christmas Celebrations

For the past 2 years, I spent xmas at home,

With the teevee.

This year is different.

I went on a shopping spree.

And because nobody shops on xmas day itself, shops were quite empty,

Malls weren't as crowded as xmas eve.

Together with the sales on, of course I HAD to buy something.

Surfer Girl shirt 70% off, 32 bucks going for $9+,

Topshop on sales, bought an indoor shoe for $9 instead of usual $19,

Then bought a crewneck tee from G2000, 50% off, at $9+.

All my buys were under $10. Good deals eh?

Well Christmas ain't too bad spent on shopping. (:
Presents presents presents.

I gave out more than I received,

But Christmas: A time of giving and receiving.

And psychologically, you are supposed to feel better giving than receiving.

Shall update on what I got laters~

Now I need sleep,

Lack of sleep makes me grumpy/cranky/unenthusiastic about anything and everything.

That is bad enough.

The Pen is Mightier than the Sword

Sometimes words hurt more than physical wounds.

So watch what you say because you may just lose someone in your team.

Since "You are disappointed in me,"

Then perhaps all the more I should leave.

Why do I have to make myself miserable?

And seriously, YOU ARE A JUNK LEADER.

Merry Christmas to all!



Have a merry merry Christmas!

End of yet another 2 modules

Lectures end for advertising and public relations modules. With two consecutive running modules, I bet it darkened everyone's eye rings. But with a many-impersonations-and-face-expressions-funny-lecturer, lectures were fun. (You can't really ask for more.) So what's a better way to bid Matt goodbye today than with a Hallmark Christmas card, filled (I mean literally filled with words.) with well-wishes written by everyone and a magnet about planting seeds of knowledge.

Anyway, Matt praised our class,
which could be a good/bad thing.

Good: Lecturers are more sincere and willing to teach.

Bad: They will have certain expectations of us.

Well well well, you can't have your cake and eat it.

Lectures may end, tutorials aren't, and these two post-assignments kill. I suddenly miss the salesman and Karlie impersonation. Haha.

Oh, oh! And presents exchange in class today. Josephine got my gift, while I got a water tumbler I dunno from whom.

Ok, I feel like sleeping now.
Went to shop at Suntec and Orchard today for presents,

Crowds were crazy.

I'm making another trip there again tomorrow,

Let's just hope that my petite size will allow me to squeeze through crowds swimmingly.

I blasted like $100+ on Christmas presents, that's bad.

My bank account is way too low on its limit and it's time to pump back some in.

But I wanna buy two gorgeous shorts that I saw today. *Whines*

Can someone get that for me preeeetty preeeetty puh-lease?

Or cash is welcome too.

Anyway, the mini-Christmas tree at home is too small to accommodate the presents underneath it.

Will show you a picture soon...

I truly need some good sleep like NOW.

Good night humans.

My Christmas Wish List (& #200 post)

All I want for Christmas is...


That will solve almost everything that I want.

I can:
-repay my education loan
-and lead a luxurious life
-not worry about allowance
-buy all the tees I want in the world
-get myself another pair of sneakers
-build myself a gingerbread house
-travel to New Zealand and US Disneyland
-revamp my room and buy new furniture
-buy more books from book fest
-get new bags
-get more shorts
-change my desktop into a laptop
-go online shopping like mad
-travel to Malaysia now to eat prawn noodles
-pamper myself with facials
-slash my credit/debit cards like nobody's business
-have a tv in my room
-get a playstation
-buy more jackets
-change my wardrobe
-stop tutoring
-have enough money for US next year
etc. until I think of more.

For now, CASH is most welcome. (:

Most of us went through the Singapore education system at least till 'O' levels.

And I must say that although the system is not at all flawless,

I've reaped the benefits of it.

I can read and write properly, both English and Chinese.

I can count, add, subtract, multiply, divide,

Do algebra, know my Chemistry, Physics and a bit of Biology.

I'm perhaps most grateful to spelling, dictation and composition,

Now that I can write in proper sentences when needed.

So I say, don't complain at times.

It could be a blessing in disguise.

I'm tired, 8 hours of sleep isn't enough for me.

I like school and I enjoy lectures.

I hate waking up in the morning, because it's too comfortable to.

I'm sleepy but I can't sleep 'cause I haven't had enough personal time for the day, alone.

I'm feeling so random with so many thoughts.

Sunday, December 16, 2007


When you have the sudden motivation to pursue a certain goal,

Do you write it down and see it everyday so that you remember it?

Or do you think about it and just let it flit away?

Well, this time I'm gonna write mine down,

And pursue them.

My Christmas Wish List

This year, my christmas wish list might just be a lil' different.

The first on my wish list is something that I really hope will come true,

Not this year, perhaps a few years down the road.

I think besides the finances involved, it will also require a fair bit of courage.

But that's what I really want, the experience of it.

Wish list:
1. To do my masters at OCU. (Grant me a full scholarship please.)
2. To have my education loan repaid in full.

Right now, I can't think of anything materialistic that I really want/need.

Perhaps certain things are weighing my down, like tertiary education.

Well well, this post shouldn't sound too emo,

But it gets to me once in a while,

Especially when you reach home late almost everyday after tuition and school,

And there's just not much free time for myself.

Perhaps a hug now would do some good.

Nope, that ain't a blooper, it's BLOP!

It was our agency name that created a Sonic Drive-In advertising campaign for an assignment.

Well, to hell with it 'cause it just took away all my free time,

Considering I don't have much,
I was basically just left with time for sleep.

And so the presentation was yesterday.

Seriously I love our group, no passengers (if you know what I mean).
Well done BLOP! Inc.

And the aftermath of slogging...

Presentation marked the end of our advertising module,

But also marked the start of our public relations module today.

Not even a 24-hour rest ok.

Let's just pray/hope that there wouldn't be another group assignment for this,

I might just drop dead.

Well, so far Matt is a great lecturer and all, humourous yet serious bleah.

And we have all noticed the displeasure he has with __________.

He's lucky 'cause lectures end for him on 22 Dec,

Which means he gets to go home for Christmas.

We ain't so lucky because there's tutorial on the 26th.


2 years of Christmas in Singapore already.


I want my next Christmas elsewhere.

Well, Oklahoma ain't a bad idea. *Wink*

Tired Tire Tiring

Lessons start once again. (And tuition starts tomorrow. BOO.)

With a dramatic lecturer who scares from time to time,

And imitates Karlie.

But it's the assignment that's killing.

Today I wore a racer back to school,

Kalyn went "esther, 你穿这么少啊!"

Translation: you wear so little ah.

Erm, yes lesser than the normal tees I wear,

But that's not revealing a lot right?
I think I'm smitten.

Another moment of lust

I just want to kiss you now.

You know who you are.

3rd December 2007

Yesterday marked a special day for me,

And to the newly weds, Ronald and Regina.

It was their holy matrimony.

As both of them are Catholics, they had a church wedding that morning.

Followed by tea ceremony and then the dinner at night.

If you are asking how was it,

Well of course it was tiring with all the preparations and last minute details,

But it was also fun and emotional moment for us.

Well, I'm not all that happy where "I can get rid of my brother."

Both of us are really close, even we are 8 years apart.

The type of sibling relationship between us is hard to put in words.

But I'm still happy for my brother who has decided to start a new chapter of his life.

I didn't really have appetite yesterday with all the work and emotional moments.

I'll really miss my brother, even he's not that far away.

Don't give me hell lotta trouble

We are nice enough to provide accomodation for you people to stay,

With no costs, and here you are bringing YOUR friends to stay.

I don't know who your friends are, and I don't exactly welcome them.

So fuck them.

Here am I taking the effort to arrange the rooms for you,

So that everyone as far as possible has a bed space to themself,

And you want to squeeze with others, causing discomfort.

You want to be the boss right?

You want to have the say right?


If you don't have enough space to sleep comfortably,

Don't come and complain to me.

Don't come and give me such trouble.
