I was right in my decision not to go for my MAEC tutorial. It would only be an hour and fifteen minutes tutorial. The two hours I would spend traveling forth and back, would be a freaking waste of my time.

Despite telling the rest that I was not going, there was this doubt that I should go. Attendance aside, for heck, who cares? Mine is perfect thus far, surprisingly. Taylor might be a fast marker, unlike what I thought, and return the class the papers. My tutors always have this policy that only you, yourself, can collect your paper and grades. So ya, felt like going just because of the possibility that papers might be returned to us.

However, haha, I was right to stick to my decision of being a pig at home. SeeYan messaged me at 1045 telling me there was no tutorial. It was cancelled. She only knew this when she was at school. Hahaha, if I had went, I would be cursing myself over the fact that I would have traveled for nothing! Nothing except for a piece of pink paper.

So, hahaha. I should not have doubted my genius all along. After all, since when had I ever made a wrong decision? I am perfect after all.

We did the annual Qing Ming routine today. It was a heck of a long day. We were up in the bus by 9am, only reaching my grandfather's gravesite at 11 plus! The traffic was so heavy. Then, we proceeded to the Columbarium. Though it was nearby, it was a fairly long trip too.

By then, the sun was scorching hot. We were all sticky. Just eww. There, at least, were shelter. We saw a pretty big group there having lunch. They even have these containers of drinks. They were just sitting around or chatting nearby. My mother expressed her envy. Looking at them, and then at our family. Bringing up of lawyers and all, quite disheartening isn't it?

Then, we went home, took our lunch. Rested for a few minutes before going back to the cemetery to clean up my mother's dad's grave. It is weird that I addressed my grandfather like that, but well I have never seen him before. He passed away even before I was born.

Here, I really experience the difference between the two sides of my extended family. One was often distance, insincere. Lots of hidden words. Yet with another, everyone was making fun of each other. The cleaning affair was a very lighthearted. Teasing all around. Oh well, I don't think I want to be close to the other side anyway.

We left at about 4pm. The traffic was still heavy. There are even traffic policemen situated just an junction away from each other. It was that bad. Just hope that next year would not be as bad as today...

My left thumb seems to have develop a resistant to silver.

That was the second ring I lost in a month! I was already pretty upset about the first ring. I rarely find rings that I like that fit nicely on my finger. That ring was pretty cool, this band of silver with 3 indents, giving the slight impression that I was wearing 4 thin bands on my finger. And I had another identical one. So, cool, I had one on each hand.

Yea, lost that. Was quite upset, but hey, at least I had that for at least 4 months. So, I manage to find an replacement at one of the school fairs. Now, I really develop a liking for it. Just one loop with curvy ups and downs. I had that for less that 3 weeks! And it cost me $4. Cheap, but I only have it for less than 3 weeks! 3 weeks! I'm repeating myself but I really really like that ring!

I don't care, I am going to find another ring. Heh, maybe I'll find two connected by a chain. Then, I'll wear one on my middle finger, and the connecting one on my thumb. Ha, that way it's not likely to be dropped.

Damn, I still want that ring!

[Lyrics] Lunar Silver Star Story- The Boat Song

Wishing on a dream that seems far off
Hoping it will come today.

Into the starlit night,
Foolish dreamers turn their gaze,
Waiting on a shooting star.

But, what if that star is not to come?
Will their dreams fade to nothing?
When the horizon darkens most,
We all need to believe there is hope.

Is an angel watching closely over me?
Can there be a guiding light I've yet to see?
I know my heart should guide me, but,
There's a hole within my soul.

What will fill this emptiness inside of me?
Am I to be satisfied without knowing?

I wish, then, for a chance to see,
Now all I need, (desperately)

Is my star to come...

Today, I was feeling rather sick. I have flu, my nose was dripping. Every few seconds, I sneezed. I was told my nose was red, and I looked pale. At one point in the printing room, I even packed away my laptop and slept there under the table. I was that sleepy. Come on, since when I would willingly give up surfing-time?

Yea, I hate having flu. I would be feeling faint and all that. I was advised to go home a few times. However, it was only 2 hours, I want my attention taken. So can you imagine my face when I realize the tutor was not going to take attention! But hey, we completed our database, despite me spacing out every 10 minutes. And we did it during the workshop, so another plus point, we do not need to stay back.

Ya, so I returned home and slept. 3 hours to 7. Now, I'm better expect for this headache settling in. Oh well, at least I do not need to go to school tomorrow. Yea. Sleeping soon.

Note to self: Study for POA and MAEC. Tests on next Monday and Tuesday.

Monday, March 22

Have been a few days since I made an entry. 4 days to be exact.

We had our chalet over the weekend. I had lots of things planned out then, reading novels and going through 115 episodes of Prince of Tennis then. I was damn bored the last time we had a family chalet. I ended up pacing up and down the spiral stairs. I was that bored.

However, I was better this time around. Perhaps it was because my cousins were there this time. These cousins are from my mother's side, who I interacts with. Only ended up reading half of a novel and 34 episodes of PoT. And numerous times through one scene in 106, just because one cousin found a song very funny. "Shampoo~Shampoo, Momo-chan" I kept hearing that tune during the entire chalet.

The trip back was pretty eventful. My father was all panicky because he saw on some report that it would rain very heavily, and that it would flood in numerous places. True enough, it rained. We waited for it to ease, and made our way home. Once we reached our house itself, it started again. Pouring. Water was everywhere, my elder sister and father had to stand in front of our door with umbrellas, while the rest transport all the stuff we have into the house. Water was still going in.

It was pretty amusing, come to think of it. We had a small cousin with us, I sheltered her to our house first. So she was relatively dry, she was pretty excited about the entire thing. Running around the living room. Hopping up and down. So, ya, another eventful rainy day. I seem to have a few of those.

So, today is Monday. I can actually go home at 2pm, if not for my BCA database. It was actually not that bad, we were all working together this time. We were not creating 2 databases in pairs now. So things moved fast. However, we have to do our queries, forms, reports and switchboard all in one shot. The thing was so abominable in the end, I was rushing through it right at the end. Just want to finish it and stop having to look at it.

It was Jasmine's birthday yesterday. We went to Seoul's Garden to have our lunch. Was actually planning to proceed to my house later after to do our BCA project...but.

Well, we spent almost two full hours there. It was lots of fun. Everyone was cooking a lot. Alina was actively cooking the meat, and Jasmine cooked squid for us. She was the most successful in getting it well done, the rest of tried and it did not taste as good. Well, mainly I played with the soup, throwing fish, fishballs, hotdogs in. Don't know how to check to see if meat is going to be over-done or what... I even went to take a corn to put it in, it taste very good and sweet towards the end. I gulped down quite a lot even though I was feeling really full.

Ayuni got Jasmine a cake, we didn't eat it though. Everyone was feeling too full. So, Jasmine took cut-up pieces to school today. Only Alina ate one during our morning tutorial. At the end of the day, the pieces are still here. We all finished our lunch, so...

I saw someone I haven't seen for a long while. Well, I was sort of expecting or hoping to see Jo today. She is taking her ECH paper in our block. The same for YiXian during the FMS paper too. Well, hoping, but was not expecting it. So was really surprised when she grabbed me from the back just outside the lift entrance. Haha, that woman didn't press the level for her stop. She need to exit with us at Level 3 and walk the stairs down. Hahaha, is that lame or what? Can you imagine if all other people in the lift, including me, are going to level 9? Dude...well, hope she gets into ECH, then I'll see her around on campus. ECH is taught in the yellow zone, right? Mmm...not sure, but well still same NP campus anyway.

If you call me Sandy, you are in 99% of people I know, or you know me from somewhere.

If you call me Chen Hui Hui, you are one of my Chinese teachers, and I am still not sorry for the pains I caused you during the lessons. For hey, you made me suffer too.

If you call me Tan Wei Wei Sandy Chen Hui Hui, you are the SIX trying to get my attention. Or you are me making the same lame joke about breaking my own arm during exams, because I am asked to write out my full name.

If you call me Sand, you are the SIX who shared shit and honey with me in SMSS.

If you call me Sand with a long drag, you are the same SIX trying to get something out for me. Or you are YiXian crying again about ditching you for others.

Was totally shagged the day before, meaning Saturday. I went for the SMSS Alumna's BBQ. Not a few minutes after we get the fire up, it started raining. Damn heavily.

We hurried and bring all our stuff to the pavilion, there was only 6 of us there then. There were three other groups there, they took up all the benches so we were damn pathetically sitted on the floor. There was a baby behind us, wailing away. Smoke was all around. All in all, it was a very interesting experience. I think it was fun, only a fun experience that I don't really think I want to experience again.

Oh yea, I was the only 4/3 girl that turned out. The rest of the 12 were from 4/4.

Friday, March 12

Went to meet Jingyun just now to try to get her anklet fixed. Got her an bracelet and anklet for her birthday. When I got it, I did not notice the clasp being spoilt.

So, ya, tried to get the sale assistant to fix it. She told us to go shop around for ten minutes and come back later. So we left under the impression she was going to change it for us. I mean, the clasp was really close, it would not close back automatically after we released the holder.

So, I asked Jingyun to accompany me to dinner. Meaning I eat and she watched, and disturbed me. She had to return home for dinner. By the way, they are selling the breaded fish again. YEA! I thought that tasted really good.

So after I ate, we went back to claim her anklet. I was all 'huh?!' when I just saw the loose metal being pushed into the holder. We were all like, oh it will fall out again. The assistant tried to reassure us that it would not. -.- Well, to make a long story short and to stop myself from getting pissed again, we argued. Politely of course, but in the end we had to pay to get the clasp changed. Her reasoning being she let me check the good before leaving.

Hello! The only time I checked for was the color seeing that she handed it to me after washing. Of course, I only check for the color of it. Well, she sucks. I mean, she was the one who put it on the bear for me. She need to clasp it shut and she did not tell me the clasp was broken? How dishonest.

Thursday, March 11

My hand is now a weird shade of purple. I drew on my left hand with a marker. Was pretty cool if I say so myself. However I did not like the way the color was getting off at the tip of the fingers, so I went to wash it off. More like scrubbed it off.

With the dish-washing sponge to get it all out. Well, there are still traces of it but it is now more like shadows across my hand. Except for the slight purple tinge. How purple? Well, it's dusky. Like the skin of ghosts, vampires have in the movies.

Cute, if only I can remove the residual stain from beneath my nails. My nails are too short for me to clean them properly yet long enough for dirt to get beneath them. Well, ewww.

I kind of missed drawing on my hands. Used to do that very often. I may start this habit again. In lectures. Cool, oh I had a pretty funny MAEC lecture today. The lecturer was telling all kinds of jokes. Some were pretty R like how people can pronounce factory like fuck-tree. Susu - milk or something else. That was fun.
Okay, I am done! With many things!

Well, first, done with my common tests. Meaning I got my results back!

I got 78.5/100 for BCA, which was only fairly well done.
Seeing that in my project group alone, the rest scored 80 and above. So let's not even go think about the rest of the class.

An B for MAEC, which is 72.5 percent.
I expected better for this test seeing that it was only True False and MCQs. Oh well, at least I got an B. It was below average though. There are 9 As above me and another 5 Bs. Our class is only about 22 or so.

An 94.5/100 for POA!
Sweet! Ya ya, I'm not supposed to gloat but hey. Dad was nagging all the way about me not paying a bit of attention to my studies. This is also the test I spent 30 minutes tormenting myself over in that examination hall. All because of bloody Capital. Haha, by the way, I tied with Alina for the second place in this test. I heard that Chin Fatt got an inhumane 99 for this. I am not that sure seeing I was late for this tutorial when the tutor gave the papers back.

Ya, so that was my results. Now, the other thing that I am done with is my WCOM project. I am the one typing out the transcripts for the project. Final editing and printing. Thought I was totally screw last night, only starting to type at 11 pm. Got my elder sister to help at 2 am. Did not finish even then. Luckily, I didn't have to print then as many lack the addresses of the interviewees. So now,I am done. Printing them now. Hell of a bitch, this project. Well, after this, I'm done. Hopefully, this is the final edit. If not, I have to print all over again.

Then, we can start all over again with our BCA project 2. Oh yea. I can almost taste my own excitement.

Haha. Yea, right.

Love him or hate him, he sure hits the nail on the head with this!

To anyone with kids of any age, here's some advice. Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

Rule 1: Life is not fair - - get used to it!

Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will
expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You
won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents
had a different word for burger flipping -- they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine
about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are
now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and
listening to you talk about how cool you thought you are. So before you
save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try
delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off
and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have
to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

If you agree, pass it on..........

Saturday, March 6

Dude, the same thing is happening all over again. I am starting to spend lots and lots over one single obsession.

Then, it was SailorMoon, I am embarrassed of. Because now I can see there is no plot whatsoever. They danced again, losses the battle, the cats reminds them of their powers. They changed into their sailor suits and they wins the WAR! That is not the summary of the entire series but of each single episodes. WTF, hey I was primary 4 then, so I'll leave it as a mistake in my ignorant youth.

Now, I just spent close to $100 on POT (Prince of Tennis) in just an matter of 2 days. $40 of which on an illustration book, which I'm cool with. I've spent $70 on another one of Dear Boys before, simply because the cover is black and the boys are damn good-looking. The other $60 is just on fan stuffs. Pencils, phone accessories and an fan book. Likely to spend other $100 for the clothes I mentioned in the previous post. If I want to count in the money for the comics, that would have been another $100 plus.

Well, POT is an series thousands obsessed over. There is like tons and tons of stuff on them. There is two musicals on it, another 2 at least in the planning. Well, damn if I really want all their stuff, I would be spending more than thousand on it. Which I don't have, heck. These stuff are imported, so it's that expensive. Yahoo!Japan do not do overseas sales, which I can't play with too as I do not have an credit card and the shipping cost would suck me dry. BUT I WANT~ the things are so cute. Chibi toys, uniforms, the vocals CDs. It is breaking my heart.

Well, at least this time I can say it is money well spent. He. Just because I think they are so~ good-looking. Heh. Why can't there be real living guys like that? Ok, I will settle for less, just the looks no need for their attitude. Even that is hard to do. my tests are done. Am almost the first to leave for the first two test yet I was the SECOND LAST for POA!

Spent an freaking 35 mins over question 4! Took me 15 mins to figure out that I am supposed to find out Capital myself. Then the next 20 minutes to anguish if I should take the Total Liabilities and Equity sum to find it or add all my assets out together.

Shit, that was a bitch. I almost felt like just leaving the question blank. Luckily, I got it right in the end. If not, someone should direct me to the nearest flat vertical hard surface. I need to introduce my head to it. They will make very good friends.

Oh yeah, haha, I managed to place an order for Prince of Tennis jerseys and jackets. Singaporean made. Yeah, cheers man! I was willing to order from Japan and pay a bomb for them. Up to 500 for them. Not now. Hahaha! Less than an 100 likely, and I can get 3 jerseys and 2 jackets. When before, I was planning on spending 500 for ONE jersey and ONE jacket.

There is no pleasing me, is there? I ask for a touch of violence and sadness in the content, yet when you give it to me I find that it is too much. So much so that it is pitiful.

HunterXHunter 19 is one. HunterXHunter have always injected life morals and questions into the plot. When one is killed off, there is always this deep sense of pity and waste. He/She was a fine person, it's too bad that he/she have to end up like this.

However, 19 is the most disturbing so far. "The strong feeds on the weak" There are these strange creatures that are so much stronger than the people in these few chapters. They absolutely do not spare a thought for the mankind. Humans were food to them, so that they would produce stronger children. Humans are for entertainment, put in chains stripped naked and made to behave like dogs. All these are okay to them simply because they are stronger.

It made me ponder is it really good that we made pets out of cats and dogs? Other animals? It is freaky when humans are treated this way. Yet, we do that to other fellow creatures. Planet of the Apes, I watched a short bit when channel 5 aired it. It was disturbing then too. Humans have no rights, the apes were the lords. Do these creature, our pets, feel freaked too? When are they jumping to our beats make to perform for us, are they freaked?

Many developed characters got killed off. I think it is truly truly sad. I was made to feel for them, they have personality and quirks. They are not just this random figure in there. They possessed names. Now, they are killed off, and I am freaked. I do not want a story that is all sweet, life's just a bed of roses. Yet when characters are struck out, I get freaked.

Really, there is just no pleasing me.
