I have fallen sick. Was up this morning tossing and turning trying to get rid of the suffocating heat trying to do me in.

When my mother came into the room this morning, I asked her to check me for fever. I do have fever. So today, I was feeling lightheaded the entire day I was up. Scratchy throat and all.

Went to collect my sister's results. The teacher did said she was very quiet in class. Snorted right here, he just looked at me and said nothing less. Thankfully. Went to the Jurong Polyclinic just to the right. My sister and I got the feeling that the doctor did not really want to do his job. Whatever.

Ate, come home. It was around noon, slept till an hour ago. Feeling better now. Still hot, throat is still scratchy but no more lightheaded feeling.
We had our steamboat dinner today. It was fun. Kept telling lame jokes. When Johanna asked why is one of the crab a certain color, we made her regretted asking. "Because it is not purple." "Because it is a mutant." "Because it like that color, so it dyed itself that color."

The lame prize today has to go to YiXian. Who took Angela's backpack and pretended she was going parachuting. She persisted even when none of us found it funny and went about eating our own food.

Was peeling prawns throughout. Taunted YiXian a few times. Haha. The conversation went on about sex. Hahaha, was damn hilarious. The meal itself was pretty good. We wasted plenty of food just to make the soup sweet. Corns, vegetables, there was one plate full of food that we threw into the soup and scooped out to leave at the side. The fishballs do not taste nice at all, and I told YiXian to take a lot. In the end, I only ate less than five.

In the middle, PeiTing threw these small red lobsters into the soup. They look really cute. However, according to her, it did not taste nice. And those lobsters turned our soup weird. Bitter. We emptied the pot and asked for a refill. Which took damn long. We called on them at least 3 times before they came with the kettle.

When things are winding down, and we were considering where to go and just chatting, a large insect landed on PeiTing's plate. Haha, so we left the table to that insect. All in all, it was fun. I think we should do that again. Now, we have one more activity to add to the things we can do. KTV, Movies, Bowling, Steamboat!

I got my results. Was presentable, my Dad was surprised. He said, and I quote. "Hey, your results now are quite good." Haha, see if he can nag me now to go study! HAhaha.

Taking my cap off to Alina, who got 5 ADs. And most of them, if not all, are for her core modules. Was chatting with her and SeeYan, wondering if I would ever see even 2 ADs in my result slip.

The conclusion = People, even myself, would die of shock. And their last words would go something like "OMG! Sandy is awake and studying!" I should not be so cheerful about this fact but hey, at least I know my limits.

Ok, my results.
Was pretty disappointed for this one. I was hoping to get an AD for this. As we, my group, worked like shit for this. Guessed that final test did pulled my grades down, was hoping that it would not affect it that much. Oh well.

Haha, was hoping that I would get above C for all my modules actually. However, seeing that I did no studying except for the minimum for final examinations. I supposed it would turn out like this. Hey, trend! My worst results are always my economics! When I actually understand what the tutors were taking about. Last semester was because I answered out of point, and this semester was because I had no content at all. Hahaha. Again, I am too bloody cheerful about this.

I supposed this is good. I don't quite remember but I think some of my formats in the final paper were wrong. Didn't not bother to go check my suspicions out then so...Hey! Satisfied with it.

Okay for this. My group got the feeling that the tutor was not that impressed with us throughout the semester. He favored the more outgoing in the class as they were more supporting of his antics. Whatever. And I emailed him a while back asking for those pictures he took of our skits. Replied that he would get to it when he was not as busy.

Was kind of disappointed that my only AD for an IS class as I thought of them as pretty useless. Did not want it to be too bad but I would accept B or C. Oh well, at least I have an AD for this semester. To think I got something for braving an children home when I'm scared of kids. Heh.

Heh. Satisfied with this, as I wrote bullshit for my paper. I remember my fingers were getting numb and painful in the last hour of the paper. Just wrote whatever length I thought as appropriate and was done with. So, BULLSHITTING pays after all!

POA - B+
Glad that I got this but was actually scowling at this. Was hoping before the paper itself that I would at least get an A for this. Because this paper was the one I walked in confident. Yet all because I did the last question incorrectly and had to redo it without finishing. It cost me. That question was worth 25 marks. *Scrowl*

sandy is radioactive. Wear protective clothing at all times.



Friday, May 21

Today is a very sticky day. Was up and about the entire afternoon helping my mum set up in Chinese Garden. She has a stall there for the Summer Festival. Think they are going there bright and early at 8 plus to open up. I think I supposed to go after my KUMON work.

Was so sticky and stinky that I told them during the drive back not to turn on the air conditioning. Rolled down the windows instead, if not the entire car would smell. All four of us were all sweaty beyond words.

My mum told me to make myself free on 29 or some time near then. Need to go collect my bursary. Yeah! Would have $200 for my own spending needs, wondering now if I should use it to get a new phone. Because my current phone is so shitty.

Anyway, updates for Friday meeting.
Bennie = Free
Pamela = Free
Angela = Free
Me = Free
Johanna = Should be ok, I'm supposed to remind her. So, I'll take that as an "OK"
HuiPing = Getting back to me by Wednesday.
JingYun = Not going. Have to attend "Parents Session" in place for her parents. And that thing is fixed at 6pm.
YiXian = No reply yet.

I am so lazy today. Slept till 3pm in the afternoon. Sure, I did wake up once in a while but I just went back to sleep again. Only after 3, did I rise to do something else. Something else = Reading in bad.

Just got back from work. Damn hungry now, Mum didn't give me money before I left for work. The only thing I ate the entire of today was one miserable Fan Choy. Damn hungry.

Yesterday, I got my Fudomine shirt from CP. I'm supposed to get my Hyotei one too together, but apparently there was something wrong with the printing. So, waiting for it now...

Then, met up with YiXian and Angela, did nothing except having lunch together and talking. Talked for a long long while. It was pretty fun. Then, we have the idea of eating steamboat together next Friday. So far, everything/everyone seems okay.

Bennie = Free
Pamela = Free
Angela = Free
Me = Free
Johanna = Should be ok, I'm supposed to remind her. So, I'll take that as an "OK"
HuiPing = Getting back to me by Wednesday.
JingYun = Asked me on who's going and didn't give me reply after. =_=
YiXian = No reply yet.

That's 5 out of 8. Hey! We might have a chance of pulling this thing off! Color me impressed.

Out of where? The house? The day before, to watch Troy. The room I'm in? Likely at least an hour ago, to get my CATS booklet for my tutor's email.

A scanlation site, for updates obviously. Why else would I go to a scanlation site for?

Duh. Just somewhere where there's snow. Ok, maybe not living my life out aboard, but at least 1 or 2 years.

Watched Troy today. It was good. Was not really impressed by the fighting scenes, but I think Hector and Achilles is really graceful. Mesmeric even, especially with the music. What I like most is the OST. Is it just me, or did they recycled the music from LoTR? Especially those parts where it was only just a female voice. Angst, as if she was really singing of the pains and sufferings in a war. Fitting for wars and all, but it really sounded the same to me.

Same, similar or not. That's the part I like most. Now, I'm trying to find the ending track. Remember by Josh Gorban and the same female. Whose name I didn't even trying to remember. Long string of letters that includes x, z, and other rarely used letters in names.

Now, I have documented proof of what happened on Wednesday. Can you tell I'm bored? I'm just waiting for my stuff to finish downloading. Hopes this does not screw with my layout.

The broken slipper that started it all:

Which lead to me taking a picture in the bus, which likely annoyed and freaked the hell of the SMSS girl who sat beside me:

After lunch, blah blah. Angela and JingYun aka THE AUNTIES shopped. At one dollar! Cheap! Cheep! Cheep! Cheap!:

While I blocked people's way outside the shop, acting cute, taking photos of my socks again and my phone:

Happy with her slippers, JY now goes to steal something. I will blackmail her later with this. CAUGHT IN THE ACT:

I was actually being a perv when I took this. Trying to capture their butts, but didn't might to get one shot that actually manage to turn out well. But, I shall not despair! I now have proof/blackmail materials! I will now, sit at home like a tai tai! As long as this remains in my hands! Mhahaha!

Mrs Lee's memorial service was today.

I like her daughter's, Lisa, tribute very much. She told us how her mother would share quirky incidents from school. Letter in which apologized from stepping on school plants and more. Obviously, she inherited her mother's public-speaking talent.

And the Head Perfect of 2003/04. Please for god's sake! Can you at least write a new speech?! You are just rereading what you said on Monday! And all those Pastors/Reverends, however you guys wish to be addressed, it's a memorial service. Yes, I know it's in your job scope, but can you stop with all your brainwashing? I get all that Mrs Lee is with God now, but what's all the additional bullshit for?

I don't really mean to rant, it was a good service. After that, JY, Angel and I were planning to go town. After a long debate. Was making our way to the overhead bridge when I stepped on JY's slippers. Broke it. Come on, not my fault seriously, how many a times have I accidentally stepped on someone's shoes and it remains fine? Your shoe is obviously not for good quality for its $19.90 worth. XD

Well, ended up I let her wear my shoes and I walked, to bus-stop, up the bus, down the bus, into Westmall - Hello!, foodcourt, everywhere else, in my socks. Was pretty funny, met Amanda. Made her look at my footwear or lack there of.

I think maybe I would try that away. Just to see if I can get away with it.

Be Thou My Vision

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise,
Thou mine inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of heaven, my victory won,
May I reach heaven's joys, O bright heaven's Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

Mrs Lee has passed away. At around 2 in the afternoon. Words cannot express what I feel, but I'll try.

There is a deep sense of regret. Shock. I've always have this image in my mind that if and when our batch return to SMSS ten years down the road, she would be there. Expressing her joy and pride over the accomplishment the few may have and her concern for those who are not doing that well, experiencing one of the pitfalls of life.She is that integrated into my memories of my secondary school life.

She is that big a part of everyone's memories. Many SMSS girls posted about her. Being kind, stern, above all. The faith in us. Everyone has this particular fond memory of their own. Mine is of the orientation speech she gave in secondary 1. Not exact wordings but she believed that SM has a brighter future ahead. And that it would start with our batch. Another of our Sport Meet, we were taking a class picture. She came to us, amused. Should we be seated at the benches, cheering with our house? Yet she indulged in our request for one with her. Ended up taking two.

To a great woman.

Something happened to Mrs Lee, Principal of SMSS, today. I don't know what exactly, as I didn't manage to hear a word of the report. Speculations are going around, some said she was suffering from lack of oxygen, some said brain damage, some even brain dead. At least that were three versions I heard.

She is a damn cool Principal. Yes, she had her crappy moments specially with our batch. The batch that came in with her, so she was really pushing us hard. If we didn't do well, it reflect on her. Well, I heard we surpassed all our seniors. So...that was besides the point. She was the only one Assembly speaker that I listened to. Jokes, wisecracking all around. Unlike the Cool, Kook....however you spell it. Well, hope it's nothing too bad. SMSS would be rather different without her.

On a more personal note, I have officially begin my vacation. Finished my exams, they were rather easy actually. Of course, it is another matter if I would score well or not. The questions were easy, straightforward. My contents are half there, logical as I didn't study too much. In fact, I think I did less than 5 hours of studying for each module. Just pray that it would come back and slap me in the face. That would be a bitch.

Got my vacation job too, I think I posted about that before. Had actual experience of the scope now. Damn easy, drawing red lines across pages. If all five pages are correct, you proceed on to write "Good" and draw a star. Record the student grade in the records. And get their next assignment papers ready in the folder. That's it. Damn easy.

Their questions are like 5+3, 84+29, rewriting, and Chinese pinyi. Easy. I was so bored I even counted the dots myself at one point to amuse myself. Well, I'm kind of shocked by the Chinese though. They are learning words like "left", "right", "outside" but their examples involves "camel", "sakuras" and "bulldozers." So, I'm wondering if they are recognizing by the pinyi or the actual words themselves. Weird, I don't even know how to write "camel". Do I even know what a camel is at their age? Of course, I've always sucks at Chinese but is there such a difference?

My elder sister is trying to kill me. With. An. William. Hung's. Song.

God! Spare my poor ears! He is so out of tune I have no words to describe! It was R.Kelly's I believe I can fly. That was a nice song. Was. Now my fond memory of that song is replaced by William Hung's singing. I am deeply traumatized. And I do not think I'll ever recover from it.

Everyone says goodbye to the old Sandy. Now, I fear the beginning notes of that song. I would jump, cringe, proceed to tear my hair out. In another words, I become a panicky rabbit.

God?! Is this how my life would be for the rest of my life? Living in constant fear of a SONG? I'll go commit seppuku now.

The Hot Men.

What type of TeniPuri fan are you? (With Pictures! :O)

Hahaha, how true. Like how many times did I watch the Hyotei arc just so I can watch Atobe do his diva routine? Can I be blamed? He looks smashing! This fellow, by the way, is not Atobe. He is Tezuka. Cool, stoic. I like Atobe better.
