CHEERS TO 'THE HALLERS!'
great job! we did it! woooo hoooo!
The past couple of days were both great and tiring. Packed with obnd obnd obnd. madness. But i think poor jas suffered more. Thanks for accompanying me laaa. =)
For one, i'm glad that bondings are taking place and 'THE HALLERS' were formed..haha..but i'm quite sick of the idea of changing class, and hence, in a way.. changing friends next sem.
Can't things always stay the same?
Imagine this going to take place every sem. It kills.
Went for squash the other day. It was fun! Until i realised that squash's skills are totally opposite from badminton. When it dawned on me, i lost focus. Everything else was like on auto-pilot. I think squash's cool..and it'll be good if i can learn more of it. But this means i'ld have to give up on what i've learnt from badminton. Those years spent.. all washed down the drain. All those trainings, all the money.
I loved badminton.
And it took me some time to learn the footings etc.
Ever since i came here, i've practiced less of badminton. In fact, if we're looking at serious trgs, none. All i do now is eat..and frisk.
No sports, no sweat. Just oil and food.
I need to be distracted by something once again.
I'ld really take up squash with no qualms if it wasn't for badminton. But those who knows me, knows me. I have a weak stomach. I can put in all the effort in this..but if my stomach decides to act up once again, who's to say how my effort would (appr) to be?
i really liked it though..
sometimes it's really hard to put things to words. These emotions boiled up. Have anyone felt the same way? why have i grown to be such a man of pretence?
Ignorance is bliss.
It indeed is.
But there are some things where truth needs to be known.
Brain, will you please stop talking?
It's hard for me to hear who is who.
Brain, will you please stop thinking?
I'm feeling like such a fool.
stereotyping. How typical of human.
I need a swim.

Check this video out.
A lil history of singapore in the funniest manner.
Buffering's a lil long but it's worth it.
Talk kok in parliament somemore!
I wanna go vivocity! :(
But looks like i gotta give this tuesday's trip a miss.
So much things to do, so little time.
I'm supposed to be studying throughout the night but i got hooked with youtube once again. Stupid bad habit.
Been packed down with projects after projects. It's really fun doing em IF we didn't have our exams to worry about. In a way, i guess uni's a lil like JC. 3 yrs is too packed. besides, i have trouble getting used to the 1-chap-in-2-hrs, 1-tb-in-3-months study pattern. It's TOO PACKED.
Imagine hall life without exams, without lessons, without studies. Just pure chilling our with friends...
when will life ever be so kind to us?
My own house seems so foreign to me now. Even fender no. 1 doesn't recognise me anymore. I guess there's many ways to see uni experience. It can be labelled as the " freedom " stage or the " detached frm home, detached frm world " stage. I'll definitely not wanna give it a miss though..part of life, i suppose.
so kl and i went to the airport to study last night. Failed attempt. I was too sleeeeeeeepy! And kl was too engross in F.R.I.E.N.D.S. wahaha... we shall try it again k? But this time, tell me in advance so i can zzz first, pls. haha..
I hope the haze dies down soon.
After 2 weeks, i finally had the chance to read the papers last night.. apparantly, the west is the worst hit.
no wonder i've been falling sick all the time.
Told u it must be the west air.
This dumb flu better leave too.
Already i've missed one presentation..
Funny how the newpaper speaks of the man who committed suicide via jumping onto the MRT tracks since thursday yet the straits times has no news of it at all.
a super random entry.
I better head off to bed then.
What am I waiting for?
I’m still breaking,
I miss you even more.
And I can’t fake it,
The way I could before.
I hate you but I love you,
I can’t stop thinking of you.
I’m stuck on you.

And i can't seem to point out what it is..
no, i don't think it's you anymore.
Something strong's trapped inside this pathetic mind.
Something which is aching to escape and seek what it seeks.
Every man puts on a mask.
And as we grow older, these mask grows thicker.
this mask is so powerful, it convinces even the man behind it himself.
But what good is a world with no truth?
What good is a place where everyone hides and lies?
Whatever happened to trust?
Why must we doubt?
Why must we lie?
Where did purity and niave-ness disappear to as we become wiser?
So many questions.
Funny that as man gain knowledge, they actually become stupid-er.
If only i have the money to travel out now...
Out to a place where poverty reigns.
Where simplicity triumphs.
I wanna go there and do my social work.
I wanna do nothing but fulfill the purpose of man.
I wanna get down and dirty, experiencing the true essence of life.
I wanna realise my dream again and again and again.
And as i do so, maybe i'll be more contented with what i am.
And not lament on what a loser this soul has become.
It's only when you make others smile can you smile with glow.
stop 'frisking', yvonne!
I guess psycho's really getting on to me.
Big apology to cecilia, wendy and jia yun. I really can't help tml. Head's killing me now.
So i leave with this tonight..
As the seasons change - remember how I used to be.
Now I can't go on - I can't even start.
I've got nothing left - just an empty heart.
I'm a soldier - wounded so I must give up the fight.
There's nothing more for me - lead me away...
Or leave me lying here
Sound the bugle now - tell them I don't care.
There's not a road I know - that leads to anywhere.
Without a light - i fear that i will stumble in the dark.
Lay right down - decide not to go on.
Then from up high - somewhere in the distance,
There's a voice that calls - remember who you are.
If you lose yourself - your courage soon will follow.
So be strong tonight -
remember who you are.

a'right folks! here's the pic frm mos!
Xplat-ed yesterday. it's paintball in a cooler name. Quite fun actually...except that the time IN the 'shooting range' was too short. I think it was a good bonding activity. If only they opened more lots for 52's freshies :( or more freshies for that matter..
They call us... ' THE BLUESIES. ' wahahha..how orignial. spastic face i have there, btw.
Proceeded to ang mo kio for some porridge buffet after that. Those ppl in my team sure can eat! You should see how they gobble their food away. And how excited everyone was when the first bubble appeared. ( an indication that the soup is boiled and we can start diggin in. ) Anyway, i didn't really had much appetite then..guess i was tired already.
Just look at how much food we have? and this was only the FIRST round.
On the whole, i had fun yesterday. :)
Checked out hall X's forum for the first time today. Found a couple of pics.
Look at this from investiture..
The photographer decided to take a picture of us being natural, having our daily conversations. But look who decided to act cute behind?
Thereafter, the same photographer ( i assume ), decided to take us 52-ers as we posed away..
And look at who is STILL acting cute behind.
wahaha..kidding Jas! =)
Ever since i started staying in hall, my body's immunity have been going from bad to worst. Fell sick so many times already. And i think i'm gonna fall sick again. Been sneezing the whole day coupled with this cursed sorethroat and that frequent feel-like-vomitting spells. urgh! i think that's a sign that i should start exercising again.
Oh ya, some girl(s) in block 52, level 2, ( not you, pl. not you, fh. not you, estelle. not you, hui sian. not you, yee sim. definitely not me. ) have a big problem in passing motion. Both big and small. They're like all over the toilet seats!
yes, i mean both big and small.

I feel like giving up.
I won't walk out until you know..
Here I go!
scream my lungs out and try to get to you,
You are my only one.
I let go,
but there's just no one, no one like you,
You are my only,
my only one.
It was great clubbing experience with the 52-ers esp with all the scandals and stuff. =D
Definitely would've been even better if it wasn't carried out at that daunting place.
But on the FOREside, i'm psyched to see the POW-made-PTI shannon and pom pom last night. It's been a long time since we met up..esp with shannon.
kl, you should've been there. The music was much better than what we experienced before.
Staying in hall requires alot of give and take. There is no about you but more of an about us. Neighbours and friends have to be there ard one another all of the time. That's what i like about it. The support that we have to give one another, the inter-reliance, the joy and the tears. There are no mothers for us to throw tantrums on, no maids to do up your bed, no grandmothers to cook taken-for-granted meals. Everything's new. You'll be surprised to see friends who were spoilt at home taking initiatives and behaving responsibly suddenly. Friends are a very important factor of life. One little nudge, a single touch. These signifies lotsa expressions. And i'm ashamed to say i'm not much of a good friend but hey, i'm trying to learn. To make up for it, i shan't only nudge. I'll give a hard push, yea?
a'right, enough with talking kok.
Here's what happened at OB presentation yest:
" Another solution we propose is to help the employees adapt to the new change.. Via formulating team guidelines. Instead of making their own descisions... bla bla bla. "
" Another solution we propose is to -BLANK- via -BLANK -. Instead, -BLANK - - BLANK - - BLANK - "
you nervous wreck.

Check it out, check it out!
Totally dig this show!
Amazing how they can perk up the life of one.
Friends are such gems.

Went over to fang hui and estelle's room earlier on to get help with stats. While i was partially dozing off on fang hui's bed, a bee ( or so we thought ) flew out. The 3 of us scooted frm one end of the room to the other in hope of avoiding the bee.
Eventually, it hit the ceiling fan and landed on the table. Turned out to be a beetle afterall. Fang hui summoned up her courage and used about 2 pieces of tissue to try and grab it. But she screamed the very moment she was in contact with that thing. Given her never-say-die behavior, she tried once more but failed once again, at the gross-ness of touching an insect.
Estelle eventually managed to squish it. Not after much screams of course.
you go peagent queen!
Don't deem me as useless just yet. I volunteered to use estelle's tb to smack it ok! And that took alot of courage. Afterall, i might get whacked by estelle for volunteering her book. wahahha. =)
The best part is, when estelle opened the door to throw the small corpse, dear fender was waiting quietly outside the door..probably attracted by the screams and laughters. Upon seeing my lovely cat, she screamed..yet again. haha... fang hui, intrigued by the scream, went out to take a look at what was happening... and screamed once more.
there goes our quiet, peaceful 52 environment.
ain't gonna take me down no way.

Went out for a spin with Steven..
Just to clear my head.
It was a looooong journey. Stumbled upon some beach place. Quite cool for fishing but it's super far in.
Anyway, i beat my top. on the way back, without warning me much ( he only said, " bend down when i bend. " ), we went up to 210. His top is 230. I'm nearing it!
Came back into ben's room for his post bday celeb thing. We spoke of many things.. until somehow, steven brought in the topic of religion.
I've long forgotten how it feels like to kneel down and pray. To listen to the priest's sermons. To nod my head, to reflect and to thank. I can't even remember the mass's sequence.
his words are no longer of much importance to me. To some extend, i believe it's all just bull. How else can u explain some of the ppl i've met?
someone has to be blamed, right? haha..
oh, and if you're wondering, xie's friend's cat is found. She was in the neighbour's house all along. So much for the bawling and deformed face.
soooo....does public blog really make one vulnerable?
For a person who doesn't intend to keep this blog, i'm talking alot.
Father into your hands,i commend my spirit.
Father into your hands,
why have you forsaken me?
In your eyes,
In your thoughts,
In your hearts,
What if one day we woke up,
and realised that our lives are actually dictated step by step?
planned from the very beginning,
what would you do?
Mine will look veeerrrrryyy stupid.
Now, hush little baby, don't you cry.
Everything's gonna be alright.

on this very special day, i shall try my hand at this public blog thing once again. Can't believe i'm actually doing this.
Oh well, a source of stress- relief i suppose.
Haze cleared up pretty well today.
Studying for close to 24 hrs straight was GOOOOD. we should do it more often :)
a'right, i've got a feeling, very soon..this blog will be abandoned together with the many millions of deserted ones.

Lets just tryyyyy.
This haze is a killer! It's given me headaches.
Was at xie's friend's place at 3 plus when everyone noticed that one of her cat is missing. After checking with the neighbour, and to no avail, xie's friend turned around, faced us and suddenly bawled like a small baby,
" I LOST MY CAT! "
Picture a 17 year old crying at the corridoor in the middle of the night, followed by 8 teenagers roaming level to level for a missing cat.
