Des got a flyer at opposite our sch's kopitiam that says redeem ur movie ticket at the box office, absolutely free........ thot it was too good to be true.... so we went to try.... and its realli true!

The Art of Seduction...... well.. actualli as usual, korean show are bit boring.... except the fact that there are quite a few "laughable" scene. But then again, its suppose to be a COMEDY. if theres no laughable scene at all, then it will be such a failure..... lol......

I finally blogged.....

posted by frances_sha @ 1:13 AM  
NOTE!!! :: updated with more pics at 23 apr, 12.11am....

yup! i finally blogged again..

actually the reason y i am not bloggin is bcos theres a lot of pictures involved these few days and most of them are taken in des's hp..

anyway let me take a review of what had happened during these few days....

Monday

well, after a long shitty IE paper.. erm, actualli not realli long.. considering i have to answer 40 qn in 2hr 40 mins.. and its not 40 MCQs ok! its 40 answers ranging from 1-5 sentences..

ok thats not the point.. anyway I finally can go and have my er ren shi jie with desmond.. and that day activity was totally planned by him.. ranging from what movie to watch, what time, where, and where to eat dinner... and haha... $$ blink blink.. also 100% by him.. cos he wanted me to concentrate on my IE revision, yup.. so i leave all these decisions to him and just be a princess...

we watched Inside Man at PS. wanted to watched it at the new Cathay, but the timing is quite screwed up.. and heard from joyce, she also feel that the timing is screwed up, but she insisted that its bcos er.. wat? say they want to target different market eh?? haha.. that stupid timing is just bcos nobody will watch thats y GV they all smart and dun have show at that timing la!

well for the show wise, its quite a nice show... just that if u are someone who dun like to watch show without an ending, you might find the plot's rather fei...... cos like whole thing dunno what is it talking abt... but on the whole its quite exciting.. and i lurrrvveeee trailer.. so i quite enjoy this movie..

after that we went to have a late dinner... hee.. at The Manhattan Fish Market... well its another western food restaurant that somehow has the same concept as Fish & Co... but i managed to find some special dishes and we ordered them.. ordered a Fried Calamari.. ok this one not realli special just that their calamari is real small in size.... then ordered a Fried country mushroom.. this one is special and nice! the sauce that comes with it is good! yummy.. hee.. then for the main course onli ordered one.. and we take the grilled dory... the dory is nice, but the buttered rice is even nicer... hmm.. i think i am getting hungry liao.. shit..


Took a pic together while waiting for our food......

then while i was joggin on the treadmil, tuition kid 1's parents suddenly call and wanted to cancel the tuition... so i come out with a plan B...

12pm: gym
2pm: lunch at Jack's place
3.30pm: cut hair
6pm: home....

and off i call my tuition kid 2 to cancel tuition cos if i go onli one of them, i am not tapping on the economies of scale.... muahahah..

but tuition kid 2's dad said: "huh? y u cannot come?? she got tests the whole week leh.."
haiz.... so no choice lor.... but to come out with plan C:

12pm: gym
1.30pm: qin cai lunch
2.00pm: cut hair
4pm: depart for tuition
5pm: tuition 2

3.15pm: shop at HMV
4pm: depart to tuition
5pm: tuition......

Thursday

This day finally went to the Dim Sum buffet that des had been talking abt since last year.....
together with Ivy, Yeeling.... we went to the Dragon Gate Restaurant (if i recall correctly.. hhaa)... weekday onli $12.80 ++ per head...... the dim sum erm... as a singaporean.. i wud say OK.. good..... haha but as a HKer... i think ok...... so so....not bcos not nice....... but variety not alot..... got alot of dimsum not available under buffet.... but nonetheless, its still worth going....

its shocking.... we ordered NINETEEN FREAKING VARIETIES...... yes.... varieties onli..... and plus 4 longs of Ha Gao, 3 longs of siew mais....... i think total we had abt 25 plates of dim sum to finish........

our battlefield table plus ivy trying to siam.... chor..

and dunno y everytime.. again and again... whenever eating buffet must resort to play zhong ji mi ma to finish the food..... and felt so guilty and so comfortable after eating finish all the plates.. so long nv eat buffet until so terribe that i was having stomachache till night time......

after lunch, 4 of us, plus jessie, went to ktv.... hee... mini MIC outing...
and realise that the Kbox for student is no more 2-7pm liao! so niao!! its onli ANY THREE HOURS.................. so niao!!!!! then the person suggest us take the K member then can sing until 7pm and order those "other than the normal drinks"...... wth... we are students and y cant we take the students package hur........ well anyway that day everybody gotta leave at ard 6pm, so in the end we took the student 3 hr package.

anyway when des and I were on our way to harbourfront for our buffet, we board the last cabin and i had an idea of taking pics of the railway.. its so nice..... wanted to use it as a background to take a pic with des, but realise that place is too cramped, and we cant see the railway at all.. so in the end i came out of an idea........

Image hosting by Photobucket
haha... hope its see-able..... taking pic of us in the reflection....


Friday

des acc me went to Singapore National Eye Centre for my lasik-ed eye checkup.. yippeee.. i am discharged.. finally..... haha and my degree had improved!!

well as for des, good for him to acc me so he could get more info abt lasik.... haha but i think he wanna back out after knowing how much is my check up cost....yup...... just the checkup cost alone........ today spent $63.... for a freaking 1 min consultation with the doctor....

well after that i went to the convo breifing for CCA clubs and des went for his job briefing....

my convo briefing is so fei..... its just a chance for them to recruit pple to the vacant posts..... and after the whole briefing, my conclusion is...... its biases to samba again........ and we could nv involve MIC in such event........ NEVER............

well y biases to samba?? cos this yr theme is SMU beat..... and they say they wanna get a certain beat and wanna give the freshmen 2 chopsticks so they can beat the beat with us....... *sweat*.... i pity this yr's facis.......

well.... des is good man...... he went for his job briefing and got hold of 3 brand new phones to use.... and all exp phone somemore..... the N91, N80 (not even launched yet!!) and 6280... the N80 is good man! the screen i like! so clear... as clear as K800.... and the camera is 3 Mega pixel!! haiz realli like that N80 so much...... but think its gonna be damn exp.....

well.. of cos i wont miss the chance to take a pic using N80!

life afterwards

posted by frances_sha @ 11:51 PM  
beyond sadness........

beyond tears........

everybody's telling me life still has to go on......

i guess now i am feeling better compared to yesterday and this morning.

however, i was sadder than what i expected myself to be.

maybe i am lag. which i always was.

huijuan told me that they were holding each other. in a way its comforting cos we know that they were at peace then....

i guess the death really has too big an impact on me.

on one hand, i was glad for them.

they went off together.

with no kids..

and they know where their souls are heading.

and they had left with us good examples and good memories as what our pastor had shared with us today.

and it really wakes me up.

你的灵魂有被拯救吗?
当你死的时候,你清楚知道你的灵魂会被拯救吗?

this is what my mum has made me ponder about....

as for myself,

this death realli tells me:

our days on earth are numbered.
life can be very brittle.
i want to be like yanru. using my numbered days on earth, impact the persons that i want to impact. just like how she had impacted me.

everybody's days are numbered. we will leave this place. some earlier, some later.
dear friend who is reading this......
do you know where your soul is heading to when you die?

this incident really make me feel that i wanna save as many souls as i can...

the friends around me....
my dar.......
my dearest friend of all.......

oh Lord, pls grant me the wisdom and open our hearts....











on another note.......

i have been procrastinating to write this......

oh well... i dunno how shud i put it.......

but.....

i guess i just dun like the feeling of "cognitive dissonance"....

since its not that i forgot or wat.....

well.......

To Shi Zheng and Yan Ru

posted by frances_sha @ 12:06 AM  
a few days ago, Corinne was still saying that she is afraid of exam period. not bcos of exams, but because bad things always come during exam periods.

just received news today.

i've seen lots of news of accident or disasters on news. but this time its someone deary to me..

i just couldn't accept it.

din i just chatted with her online a few days ago?

din we just talked about my "major decision"?

and now they become "those were the days......"

this is the first time i experience a direct friend leaving me..
i din know what to do now..

i din know what to do with her msn lying in my list......

i din know what to do with their handphone no. in my phonebook...

I just dunno how....

I feel so lost......

yanru is considered my closest elder youth in my church besides huijuan. she's my appointed mentor and had been my mentor since around 3 years ago..

we had been meeting irregularly. its all due to my fault.
despite that, she always made the effort to encourage me everytime and always gives me guildance whenever i need one from an elder. even after she left for Bahrain, we still did "online mentoring" thr msn.

and everytime half way thr chatting with me, around 11pm spore time, she would tell me that she need to go prepare dinner.. and i always suan her go go.. go and be zhu fan po...

and when asked by the mentor leader if i wanted a new mentor, i just dun want.

i love her so much.

looking at notes that she gave me.... theres one i still keep it in my pocket bible.. and everytime when i open it, i would see this note.. and i just read it last sunday... it was given to me after my pow wow smu orientation camp, i remembered i had a bad cough, and she pasted this note on top of a cough lozenges and gave it to me. i was so touched. and i ate the lozenges, and take out that note and paste it in my pocket bible since then.

I feel so regreted for not being able to meet her once during CNY when they came back...

now i could only say...

yanru and shizheng,

may you rest in eternal peace.......
