Shine Farewell

posted by frances_sha @ 2:39 PM  
Shine went back to Korea le. went back last wed night..
he held a farewell party for himself at his house (and its potluck AGAIN..) last last sat. but i din go cos i was held up in MIC exco camp..

yeah anyway met up with him and william last tues afternoon at Ben&Jerry before he fly..

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

william and i are actually quite un-convinced of shine's reason to go back. cos initially Shine told me that his plans after exams was to go cambodia, then come back, and then will go Bali for one month to learn surfing then come back to singapore and then go back to korea in abt June..

so when he called me last last thurs that he is going back to Korea, i am kinda shock and wonder is he having some troubles at home or what.

so when we asked him y is he changing his plans, he told us: "Because I'm sick." omg, then i became even more worried.. is he getting some serious illness that he need to get medication straight away therefore he need to go back to korea?

so i probed somemore. He told us that after he came back from cambodia, he was having fever for days and having diarrhea.. when i asked him did he go and see a doctor, he shake his head.. he say he is ok now and will see a doctor tmr. then i asked him when is he going back, "Tonight." lol.... what that means? haha dun trust singapore doctors eh?? so just because of this, he canceled his bali plans and go back to Korea? then fever for days still dun wanna see doc, but will see doctor when he say he is feeling ok already... quite ridiculous right?

william and i were still discussing abt it after we went home that day...... haiz really worried for him.. dunno is he hiding something from us or not.

anyway, thou there might be chance of meeting him again, but i think possibility quite low given the fact he stay in Pusan, not Seoul.. and possibility of me gg to Pusan is almost zero hahaha. yeah. so i think that might be the last time i will see him in my life.

Shine is the first exchange student i am more closely related with. so close that even des often get jealous and keep complaining abt me meeting him too much.

well... what can i do with an exchange student? i am not red head.

its just that he is simply too warm. and he's got super high EQ. He is warm to everyone. despite of language barriers, he still have more than 50 friends in singapore. You really feel that he is sincere to u when u talk to him. and that he is someone u really wanted to give a hand to whenever he has trouble or what.

some info abt him and us...

He came to SMU in 2006/07 term1 which is last term and he stayed in SMU for 2 terms, ie one year.

I met him during Music east and west...
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

there was another 2 Korea exchange students also, the other 2 of them only stayed in SMU for one term and left liao. one of them smoke and the other was super quiet. so i din really talked to them also.

then after that we took up Rondalla in Music east & west as our concentration. we've to do an emsemble of different rondallas and its so happen that shine, me and liling were playing the same parts. so we often prac together and chat together. sometimes we also meet up outside of class to have lunch and extra practices.

and thanks to him, i went to city harvest church for the first time.. for the Christmas service last year. there, it really seems that i was the "exchange student" and he was the Singaporean. felt so handicapped!

and my parents took us to JB for a short excursion as well..... see, he even know how to deal with aunties and uncles!
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

and he invited us to his 25? or 26 birthday party..... haha then we realise how popular he is.. he got so many friends!! i think if i were to have a birthday party, i wouldnt have that amt of friends coming also... let alone being a foreigner!
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

yup.. and thats all about him and me....... haha thats really sounds abit like as if he..... choi!! lol i know he will be fine. my mum say he is that kind of ppl where u dump him in desert he also can survive one.

btw, he did mentioned to us that he is gg to Beijing for summer study in abt July.. lol... everyone is in Beijing.. hee..

.MIC.results.life. [long post]

posted by frances_sha @ 3:24 AM  
yeah! des postponed his flight cos his internship is postponed by one week. now flying on 11may instead.

haiz had a small quarrel and unhappiness over this matter thou.
cos initially he dun intend to postpone his flight, even thou his another working partner, mq, who will be working on the same proj as him is changing her flying date. well i kinda feel that he dun seem to dun bear to leave singapore at all. erm or me. or whatever. like mq will say like "yeah, i wanna postpone my flight cos wo hen she bu de." well maybe thats becos mq is gal. well but are all guys like that huh?? well.. anyway he still changed his flights in the end... hahahha

then i am also not doing any 3A anymore. yeah! decided not to take up comp simulation. cant stand YKK teaching sia. he really dun teach one. hahaha anyway in the first place why i wanna take CS is bcos i left 4 mod and my gpa is currently 2.98. so die die must go pass 3.0 when i grad. and for me to grad with 3.0, i think must get all the remaining 4 mods B or B+... which i am not v confident in..... moreover, when i say all B, its when i put quite optimistic results for my this sem mods. so if my this sem results wasnt as good as what i thot it will be, then maybe i need to get like 4 A- to get to 3.0. which is crazy. so i was thinking of taking CS, hopefully i can score an A like my BP like that. so i was waiting for my results to come out, so like if my results were even better than what i planned, then i dun take CS.. if my results are worst than what i planned, then i need CS.

haiz, but then until the start of the summer class, i only knew 2 out of 5 of my results! damn. and one of them i score better than expectation, the other is lower than my expectation. lol so how? then some more after 2 crash classes, i think its impossible to get A for CS lor. everyone in my class seems so zai. i think at most i only get a B+ for it. then whats the point of spending this $800 on top of my $3000++ sch fees next term?! then somemore, i think i'll sure be darn slack next term if i only take 3mods, cos i've been taking 5 mods since like 2 years ago.. think suddenly drop to 3 mod, i will be too slack, then i wont study, then i will flung everything... hahaha

of cos last reason of not taking is cos of the timing lah. m,w,f 8.30am leh. can die lor. hahaha nonetheless, i think CS is really useful. if its offered in normal term, i confirm take one. so sad only avail in summer.

yeah talking about results..... by now, gotten back 4 out of 5 mods. still not bad, so far this 4 right, 2 got better than what i expected, one within expectation and one below expectation. the one below expectation is SP. haiz scored a B for it and was in the 13percentile lor.. wth... was hoping a B+ and so i went to look for the prof with Merrylyn....

he told me that actually i did ok. exam ok, project also ok.. and i am close to B+... so whats the prob? its peer evaluation. cos our marks for projects are derived by multiplying the percentage u get for ur peer evaluation and the marks the grp get for the project. he said the whole class almost everyone else got 100% for their peer evaluations. so only our grp. there are marks left on the table like that.... haiz we din take note of that. and our SP grp dynamics are damn jialat. some grp member always din turn up for proj and always dun wanna co-operate. its not that i din do my work and get a lousy peer evaluation and end up with a lousy score. but what can I do? so i pointed out to the prof the flaw in the peer evaluation system, hoping that he can pull me up to B+.

"well, i feel that this peer evaluation is not really accurate in calculating a grp member's effort in the group. cos honestly speaking, IF i am the free rider, when i am doing the peer evaluation, i jolly well know that I will be marked down. so if it doesn't make sense if i give others a high score. since I know that people will mark me down, then might as well i mark ppl down first."

i truly believes that's the reason why i am so-near-yet-so-far from my B+...

but the sucky prof replies are:

"well, this boils down to how u manage a group..."

dotz leh. this is SERVICE PROCESSES. not mpw or what. talk about people management eh. and seriously i think he take this evaluation too seriously. and its really so unfair to the few of us where we worked so far and yet being pulled down by this kind of ridiculous thing...


haha anyway here are some pics taken during the MOCK camp last week...... some really damn funny.


des, winston and kaykey doing a forfeit... singing twinkle twinkle little stars...... hahaha

haiz. and finally our last dinner together as a MIC exco member. Jessie and I treat the whole exco to crab dinner at Melben seafood at AMK... cost a bomb, but i think its worth it since none of them eaten there before and everyone say it taste great!

where are the successors of MIC??

posted by frances_sha @ 2:31 AM  
yeah. 2.32AM. just finish typing slides for tmr talk. in school. in sess cr 3.4...
i am dying lor. had games tryout the whole day. had interviews from 6pm to 12am. really sit at that chair for 6 hrs. listening to diff people talk. its worse than mugging!! at the end of the interviews i got backache. i dun even get backache during mugging.

haiz.. recall reading ade's blog post one year ago when she also blogged about how sad she was that nobody wanna lead MIC anymore, and that every time whenever she want to approach us or call us to discuss about taking the P position, everyone avoided her.

haiz... and bei ju always like to chong yan.............

this year's candidates for new exco some are really damn funny.

Q for PR position: If there are 2 other candidates for PR, what makes u think that you are more suitable for the job?
A: Because I am more handsome.

4 of us (interviewers) really cannot stop laughing for 1 min leh! esp me lor............. the interviewee tone is not joking one. he is v serious and say "I'm more handsome." lol....... how cute lah!!

haiz, other than that, our conclusion for the candidates are mostly negative.

Q for P/VP/Events Dir position: Why do you want to take up this 3 positions?
A: cos they are challenging
Q: if you are not offered any of these 3 positions, would u be interested in other positions?
A: no. cos the rest of the positions are not challenging enough.

this person is the worst of all. and he say that MIC did nothing but to chill out.... and he say that P is slack. wtf! and he even say MIC dun have vision, motto or whatsoever.. pls lor. we have. only HE dunno. and he is the only person who say want to be P. all of us think that he shouldn't even be in the Exco at all.

Q for marketing pos: so how committed you think you are to the club as a marketing dir? do u have any other commitments?
A: erm.. currently i only have choir prac which is not alot, only 2 times a week and campus radio recording once a week.

dot dot dot leh............ choir prac 2 times a week, plus campus radio once a week, so what u left for MIC? 2 times a week not alot leh......... y everybody think that MIC is slack huh huh huh..... think not time consuming rite? not time consuming y i had to blog at this san gen ban ye.

haiz..... comparing with last year selection, although we dun have alot of candidates, as in we dun even have enough candidates to fill up all the positions and in the end i still have to personally psycho people to be in the exco... but however those that volunteered to be in the Exco are all very good candidates and every single one of them after interviewing them, we know that they are up to standard for their job.

comparing to what we just heard from the interviews, although we had about 12 candidates for 11 positions, about half of them is either commitment problems or have no passion for the club at all. how sia..........

yeah. i love MIC 4th exco. we rocks!

haiz......

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

i saw the bird already...................
y did i fall?!?!?!
haiz...... only if i hit the bird...... then i will win joyce liao....... hahahhaha

but anyway des say currently the highest score is what??? 131,342,502,190
what kind of number is that? how to count sia? i dun even know how many billions.. lol

sianz liao lor....... my hand is so aching... and now when i think of breaking my own record make me sick.....



anyway, went to Sentosa today for our MIC new exco camp tryout...
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

hmm.. and i guess i haven been stepping into sentosa for the past........... 9months? hahah realise alot of changes!!

Firstly is the tickets.... no more the long long white tic that we bought at the arrival centre.
Now its change to this kind of contactless card, but its made of paper actually... so its one time use, and we can bring it come. The use of this card is mainly because of the new monorail system which function now very much like a LRT system. I think the idea of using paper contactless card is very good! Ezlink should adopt this for their per trip lah...... if possible haha.. then no need to so ma fan pay one more dollar and need to refund it back.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

so besides the tickets other changes i see includes like closure of arrival centre, so now tickets can be bought at a counter at the bus interchange, or there are many self service kiosk near the monorail station... really v much like taking MRT...

so now no more arrival centre, the bus from the bus interchange will go directly to the individual destinations..

then theres the new musical fountain by the sea...

and many many more......... which i dun even know where are they hahha


hahhaha for us, as usual we had scavenger hunt, beach volleyball and some stupid co-ordination game

at the end of the day, we took some funny pic before we left....

and so that marks the end of the tryout stuffs at Sentosa..
tmr we will start staying in school and sat/sun will be the actual camp!
yeah..... so friday-sunday i will be in school for camp! will be hanging ard in SESS i guess... so if u go gym, u can come look for me! hahahha

and after this camp marks the end of my Exco-ship in MIC..........

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

so after ice cream we wanted to watch Number23, but was so disappointed to find out that Cathay stop screening it liao... and cathay internet is so chor to ban GV website... so had to ask crystal to help us check GV timing from sch.. it was 2 hrs later... since its quite late so we decided to sing Ktv instead... walked over to paradiz and were disappointed for the 2nd time!! Kbox at paradiz is now only open from 7pm onwards. sad-ness!!!

hahaha think corinne was so sianz by then that she say she wanna go home liao.. so left des and I.. we went back to sch to put some stuffs back into his locker. after that i felt the sudden rush of des air tic.. they are so bo chap lor! i felt so much urgent than them even thou i wasnt even the one travelling....... i felt that by wed then they go and buy the tic maybe already sold out. des dun believe. so i asked him to call and check first. Bingo... no more tic flying on 3rd or 4th May.. left 2nd may only...... so i quickly suggest that he reserve the tickets first then go down to pay tmr............ haiz flying off earlier and earlier....... =(

and i am missing ivy and yeeling now already.. and the more i miss them, the more i can't imagine what will become of me after 2nd May... will i feel lost? sianz? sad? will i cry? cry everyday? really scare that 2nd May will come v v v soon........... =(

finally come to an end... sad-ness..........

posted by frances_sha @ 11:52 PM  
well.. my exams had come to an end.

on the other hand, it marks the last day of revision days with Corinne and Crystal as they will be going on exchange next sem. And when they come back, I would have graduated.

S-A-D-N-E-S-S sia.......

therefore we kinda like treasure every single time we can have for this revision period.

come as much as i can. and we often end up not studying but just have more fun. since this is the last time we are having fun together again during revision period.

and after my paper, i went back to GSR3.5 to take pictures. GSR3.5 has the best view in the whole school.. i felt. just that the aircon there is freaking too cold. nonetheless, GSR3.5 is very popular among the muggers. I had to book the room once it passed 12 midnight, that is, the very first second of the new booking horizon. if not it will be soon taken up by others.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


and i really feel like missed every single studying periods...
right back to the days where we always studied in GSR30 back in Bt Timah Campus...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket



and more pictures of mugging time........


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

our schedules on the board not to remind us what should we study now, but to remind us how behind time we are.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


they are members of the "mug/junk/fun program in GSR3.5 " Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


then we took some mugging acting pics.....

hahhaa look at Crystal's IE text on my hand......... its all full of tags!!! yeah. now we know how her summa cum laude comes about....
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


we are muggers-in-the-act.... lol
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket



Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


and its such a nice place, of cos i must take pictures with this "old man"

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


so after taking all the pics, des and I went to "celebrate" our end of exams.. went to Manhattan fish market... and i realise last year during this time, also after my exams, we went there too... it was after my IE paper and that i felt so tired and stress-out after the paper... haha and that was the first time i went there... hmm.. 1 year had passed so past


hahhaha can u guess which is taken now and which is one year ago? not too difficult right?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

oh.... and now i see that their quantity is lesser now! look at the number of mushrooms they give one year ago and now..... and their garlic butter.... they used to be so generous... haiz but then we will still go. really love their food!! yummy!!



and so my holidays started earlier than others....... i was so bored at home!!
and so i decided to look for them in school........

so i brought a bar of corn flakes ritter sport & went to look them up in the library (hhahha they can't tahan the coldness of GSR3.5.. so sad, wasted my efforts of the midnight rush.. lol)

heee. and i went there to play winterbells.....
