today i decided to let myself have a break. just to forsake that 60 bucks opportunity cost. just to give myself a break from excel. just to give myself a break from all the unhappy things that's happening. just to give myself a chance to go out with lingxin. yes.. so i realise how long i haven been going out with her.

well the prev nite i was so down that i tell her i cant take it anymore and tell her that my today is all hers. and i will let her plan where she want to bring me to.

but apparently NTU started sch liao. so she has sch. haha and so she ask me if i want to follow her to her lecture. it's a 8.30am lecture so she come and pick me up at 7.30am.. come all the way to my house! so today haha.. first time sit in her car leh. first time let her drive me around.. remember it used to be me driving her around..

so after her 8.30am lecture, she has a one hr break when the next lecture starts at 10.30am. so we went canteen and talk while she had her breakfast. then after that we went for her 10.30 lecture. and we saw quite a no of pple which includes qicheng and guanting.. haha nv thot that will bumb into them so easily! well ok lah.. for qicheng is bcos he is taking the same lecture as lingxin.. so met him in lecture hall. but guanting is really bumb into him at the linkway.. haha make me wonder.. hmm dunno will i bumb into muzhu or titus or zaowei or not.

then i had lunch with guanting when lingxin went her cousin's hostel to do something. after which we left ntu.. and cos i left something at office.. (haiz everytime i will die die left some impt stuffs there.. so impt that i die die must go back and take.) so lingxin drive me all the way from ntu to my office at amk to retrieve my stuffs.. well actually her plan is to go cycling at pasir ris park.. so not really say bu shun lu.. but in the end we din go cycling cos firstly the sky turns very dark. secondly lingxin got quite a number of big sunburns and shud stay away from sun for the time being. so we started to wonder what to do. we are so desparate until we took out the street directory to look at the page on "places of interest"... ma jiam tourist sia... then in the end we got a few places.. but all evolves with either cycling or ktv.. haha so lingxin suggest that we drop lots see we pick which place then we go.. haha but after i finish writing all the places.. we finally thot of a place to go.. which is NYP! haha since we are in AMK liao.. somemore is near NYP that side.. so might as well go down and see our NYP guitar club how liao... haha in the end we look for the officer in charge of NYPGC and chatted for one hr plus..

then after that we decided to go play pool at amk central. haha... the first time i am coaching pple to play pool. actually i also dunno since when i got on hook of pool.. every now and then my hand will start to itch and will want to play. so we played until evening time when i need to go echo music for my rehearsal and lingxin will go home...

well although there isnt much planning.. like go where.. do what.. but it was a very relaxing day for me. i think if not for this day, i will still be there keep whinning and weeping. thanks lingxin!!! u are my dear forever.

now i know how true this statement is "sometimes its better for u not to know anything" and "being ignorance is good".

I regret chatting the whole morning away with a friend whom i just know and know more stuff of a friend that i have know for quite some time.

I would rather choose not to know them at all.

I am sorry joyce for not attending ur lian yi.. i realli wanted to go.. but i wanted to have my section gathering as well.. =( i hope it went well! and i promise next time i'll go k....

we had our first after-camp UNO gathering yesterday at my house (yup at the expense of risk of sacrificing my life-long happiness by not attending the lian yi haha).. btw, UNO refers to all the facis belonging to section one which consist of me, corinne, jiahui, youyi, mel, uni, steph, denise, yvonne, zing, janice, chun seng, jac, ron and not forgetting our section head, WeiLin.

we took a pic before we start eating.. while weilin and uni is still with us... haha can hear all the growling stomachs!!
Image hosted by Photobucket.com

we had lots of fun.. too bad that youyi, steph and janice couldnt make it.. haha its their greatest loses!! we had lots of stories abt the orientation and also stories abt the other sections which we din get to meet to share.. then we had ktv and steamboat and bbq.. and if u think that the food is all prepared by my mum? NO!! all prepared by me (someone who got C5 for F&N) and my dearest corinne (someone who din do F&N before) hahaha... i think the food are nice! haha i know this is abit "old wang sell gua, self sell self praise..." but i really think its quite nice haha compared to last time.. and this time i manage to work within my budget well! haha with each of us only need to pay 6 bucks! there's pork, beef, fish, chicken wings, chicken nuggets, prawns, udon, vege, cuttlefish balls, pork balls... and many more lah....

some pics of my tempting steamboat and the bbq plate....

wonder what's so amusing to yvonne?!

at first we wanted to play the ding dong game.. but then in the end we din get to play firstly cos no time.. and secondly its realli a game to play when everyone is in the most shagged state.. (eg like after the 3 days of camp) and so since everyone is in their most sober state.. we shall play it next time haha!

nonetheless, chun seng is still going around challenging pple with the kiddish-clapping-hands game haha...

Last pic we took before everyone goes off to home..

the freshmen orientation cum LTB cum Circle experience camp is finally over.. it doesnt turn out good.. (as what i expected) and i just feel like a total failure.. due to my lousy expression skills plus my lousy bonding skills... i tink i really owe alot of my buddy faci jiahui.. without her i really dunno what to do... compare to me, she speaks well.. and since my group is one who like to challenge u with challenging questions like "if you think that this is a dangerous game, y in the first place u want to play it?", i think i will be tougue tight most of the time when i faced these questions.. i think its really been a hard time on jiahui.. and i think she's quite sway cos the fact that she knows so many pple doing the orientation (i really mean a lot.. she goes around like knowing the whole world..) and YET, she get to work with someone whom she is totally stranger of... haha!! as for me, actualli i also had quite a hard time working with her at first.. cos i realise that the 2 of us work totally different way.. she's rather strict with the freshies.. and eg, to her she feels tat during meals, they shud go and get their own drinks and we shud get our own.. but to me, i feel that as a grp we should help each other... so many times in a de-brief, whenever i have somethings to say, i would hesitate until i decided that i shud not say cos i scare will clash with hers.. i think all these is due to improper and insufficient communications bet the both of us..

well, nonetheless we really been thr alot during the 3 days.. ups and downs, laughter and tears... we hug each other, we cry together.. and of cos thanks UNO for supporting one another throughout the camp! and thanks weilin our section head.. i think she's really a marvelous counsellor.. most of the time in camp, she will observe and will come and talk to u just at the right time! and when she talk to u, she goes straight to giving u the right encouragements and comfort.. and instead of coming to ask u what problems u have, she observed and she knew exactly what problems u are facing and give u the right medicine at the right time...

i shall not dwell into the downs of the camp.. just wanna wish for those who are doing the run 2 this coming wed all the best... and that u will enjoy the camp really really well........ well and the rest will let the pictures tell u what me and my buddy been thr for the 3 days...........

afterwhich we set off for our amazing race in the afternoon.. it's a 5km walk to the Chinese Gardens.. with our bags! luckily this time no need to carry our tents.. fortunate enough, my grp got one who stay in bt.batok.. so he is super familiar with this area that we are going to walk.. and we arrived in the 4th position although we are the 14th group to set off.... this is the pic we took when we arrive at CG.. love this pic super alot..finds it v nice when everyone is wearing the same t-shirt..

:: Day 3 ::

woke up early in the morning at 4.45am!! if u realise the background.. its actualli just an open space where we had our breakfast.. and coincidently, this is also our sleeping area... i think it really look like a Nan Min Ying (难民营)..
Image hosted by Photobucket.com

i think both of us feels super tired cos of all the sleep debts.. but since its already the last day, we felt super relieve and just looking forward to break camp...

on day 3 we did quite alot of activities.. (well tat's y we need to wake up so freaking early) but only took pic for rafting and dragon boating...

OMG.. i see the water i feel so relieve i dun need to go down.. heard from my freshie that there's even oil deposit at the river bed.. damn gross..

surprisingly, jiahui and me finish our last lunch in camp!! really finish everything sia..
Image hosted by Photobucket.com

actually the appearance of the food is bad.. when i look at it i really have no appetite at all.. but then dunno is it bcos i was too hungry or is that the food really taste much better than how it looks...

haha but then still got someone who cant overcome the bad appearance of their food....

22nd birthday

posted by frances_sha @ 11:21 PM  
yesterday went out for my birthday dinner with my smu gang.. there's yanfang, joyce, corinne, mel, charmaine, crystal, jerry, william, and lastly "surprised guest" - guowei.

this dinner is suppose to be a surprise cum fun cum prank dinner for me. but i am sorry to say that i seem to turn everyone down.. but i dun think its my fault either. i feel that nobody is thinking in my shoes. who ask that special guest to arrive so late?! then the situation is that i am sitting right in the middle and ALONE. with the ppl on my left and right talking among themselves respectively.
hey hello.. i am a HIGH I person according to the DISC personality profiling ok! so what is the traits of a high I person? GREATEST FEAR OF A HIGH I Person: REJECTION AND LOSS OF SOCIAL APPROVAL.
and what are my friends and buddies doing? they are all attacking the weaknesses of a high I person! does anybody know how lonely i was during the whole dinner? and how anxious i am as the time goes by? does anybody care to come and give me comfort? NO! u all can just chorly enjoy yourself at the expense of me... anyway birthday is meant to sabo.

think for the details of the birthday dinner, u can just read from either yanfang's, corinne's or joyce's blog.

oh ya btw, i started reading the book my kor gave me for my bd..... and i found something interesting to share with everyone.

cos now i know what type of man JOYCE LOW KIA HWEE goes for...
according to this book entitled "How to Make Anyone Fall in Love with You" by Leil Lowndes, at pg169, having this chapter discussing abt "What types of Looks Do Men Like"... it says:


since Joyce keep wanted a big boobs.. hence we can conclude what kind of men she is after.. keep it up Joyce!!

scroll down for UPDATES!

i have been busy like siao for the past weeks.. and as usual, i will be busy for the following weeks as well.. moreover nearer to school starts, i will need to deal with the move, the vivace, the orientation stuffs, the convoc..

well today actualli nothing special happen.. but just that i kinda miss blogging so i blog.

its the first day i got internet access at my office (cos previously got no access password) and got to use the e-messenger.. and just nice as my boss is outstation again.. haha so its very convenient for me to go online the whole day.. besides, its also convenient for me to check my BOSS since the results is out today. .. haiz as usual, i failed my bids by 1+ bucks... sianz leh.. so i am still stuck with bloody 3.5 courses when the school starts. But i gotta count myself lucky as i see people getting no classes at all even after boss1a.. damn poor thing i feel.. cos when sch start, he/she dun even know which days he/she shud go to sch...

then today went for MIC meeting at bugis, and since jerry is meeting yf and nix for movie at bugis too, so we went down together and had dinner. as usual, niao yanfang is late.. and always directionless... bugis village is just a straight street and yet she is scare of getting herself lost in bugis village. so in the end she became so fierce and say not joining for us for dinner liao.. and actualli she wanted quality time with nixon onli. so chor.. so yanfang.

then at this hawker that jerry and I were having our dinner, Jerry got me a cup of herbal tea, which he says compliment with a crysanthemum tea.. I tell u, the appearance of the herbal tea realli sucks.. haha sorry kor.. but then it realli looks like the water from the pond at a primary sch.. with lots of algae on top.. cos there's this green coloured powder on top... and i just feel like puking when i look at it.. now i think of it i still feel like puking. then jerry force me to drink by telling me that its not cheap. haha.. its 5 bucks ok! hmm.. so me being an obedient mei, of cos will be obedient enuff to finish the whole glass of algae-pond-water-like herbal tea... and believe that it could realli cure my voice tmr. hahaha.. anyway thanks kor for this. i appreaciated it very much. =)

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
DUN U ALL THINK THAT THIS DRINK REALLI LOOKS LIKE the pond water u scope up from ur primary sch pond with full of algae meh.. hahah its FIVE BUCKS ok!!! *o*

after dinner, i proceed on to my MIC meeting.. this time we had our meeting at a cafe at Purvis street.. and coincidence that the cafe that we went is run by that auntie who used to sell pies and pizza at Ficus.. so now she actualli open a cafe by herself there.. think she just started opening the cafe and there's a photographer there taking a picture of the food there.. i think most probably shud be for publicity purposes.. and all of sudden the auntie came to our table and ask if any of us can help by offering a hand for phototaking... haha and female hands onli. so being the most eng in the committee.. off i went to "give my hand". actualli the photographer is taking photos of the choc fondue.. and my job is actualli to help to take a fork to poke a piece of fruit and dip it in the hot chocolate... well we snap a few shots.. hahaha... well anyway, the model fee i got in the end is a free fondue which cost 10 bucks and its quite a big one for 5 of us to share.. haha so next time if u happen to visit that cafe.. oh btw, its call Ms Clarity Cafe.. if u see the choc fondue pic, the hand in the pic is mine!!!
