The 1st thing we did was eating wan ton noodles. I was quite surprised that they actually like the red noodles, which s rare in other places.. the sauce s made of tomato ketchup.. not everyone accept the noodles to b sweet sour d.. so 1st mission achieved!
Then, we went kukup. I think they felt that the taxi was lau ya.. indeed it was.. but to me it s jz normal loh..hehe.. On the way, it rained heavily.. I blamed them for coming late, cos I afraid that if it rains, then we cant do anything there!! But William s really lucky enuff, he told us it wont rain there, indeed the rain stopped!!
When we reached, I met hong huei on his way to kukup. Hehe..howard said he can c tt honghuei s anak ketua kampong, bcos of his size..haha. We bought boat tickets n waited at the restaurant. Saw many ang moh.. Finally it was our turn. Although this was the N time I took boat, I was still very excited..
Firstly, we went pulau kukup, the 2nd biggest mangrove island in the world. I was quite familiar v the place already, since I helped xue ji to organize a camp there b4.. but the bridge was still quite scary.. after that, we jz walked along the wooden path. Then it started to rain… argh…cant go to the airy to look for birds..
Then, we went to kelong. William n howard were so excited to c the sea creatures there, like sea turtle, baby shark etc.. saw giant groupers that can cost around 1 thousand.. wow.. cool right?? But the way they kill d fish was a bit scary.. use small knife to poke the gills.. the fish was still alive after that. Then, on the way back, we asked for permission to stand in front of the boat. Howard n I took a picture v “titanic pose”. Super damn funny lah.. all other passengers looked at us when we took that silly pict.. haha
Then, we walked around kukup kangkar n they bought cai yan kueh.. nice.. howard was a bit lauya, got tired easily.. then we jz sat in front of the caiyan kueh stall n chatted for a while b4 mum fetched us to tanjung piai
Tanjung Piai s a great place!! By the time we reached, the information centre was closed actually. But it s was even better! Cos we used the bikes that r supposed to b used for patrolling to go around the places. IT WAS FUN!!! We cycled along the board walk, which was quite dark at that time, scary sial… if u ask me to cycle alone, I WONT!!! My hp started to change to Indonesia line.. Finally we stepped on the southernmost tip of mainland Asia!!! I was so excited!! (mayb bcos as I cycled, my blood flowed faster..) Then we took many photos there, haha..fun!!!

Then I blow then candles.. wat d hell? Y cannot b blown off d? I tried again.. still cannot.. hong huei helped me.. also cannot.. alamak.. even if I blow them off, they automatically lit up again… I was so zha dao then I used chopstick to pick up the candle n poke them onto the spilled soup..hehe.. clever right? then they made me to use my mouth to pick up the super short candle..
The cake was delicious.. hh kept on saying we didnt really celebrate his bday.. so penguin asked me to use the cream to "kor" his face.. haha...
Then they gav me present n asked me to open…luckily this time nth weird already.. it s a pair of pillow..a white pig n a black pig.. so cute!! I like them so much! I always wanted to hv cute pillows o soft toys.. but dunno y I nv get 1 d leh..very sien..haha.. b4 I cud hug them, the guys grab the pillows n put under their armpit.. wat d hel1!!!! All of them took turn to “contaminate” my cute little darlings…. Argh…..finally when every guy did so, they gav them back to me… y I m so ko lian huh…
After that, we “sua tuah” to the stall opposite steamboat house.. very scary…so full already still can stuck so many food… then, went home, then, slept at 3am… cos I was a bit too full, haha
Above r my presents this year..wow..cool..
the big bag s from wan xin guo ting elin liying... hehe.. they gav me long time ago cos i kept on asking them to accompany me to buy a bag..they were afraid that i wud buy when i come back malaysia, so they gav me a surprise by giving me this when i was expecting a card game n maggie curry noodles at a normal night...
the doggie pouch s from my harmoc section X...cool right? they put sweets n ...tissue paper inside the pouch..cos choo hua said i alwayz need to tissue to wipe my pianica pipe..
the seaweed... s from alan..haha.. i m still wondering y he gav me seaweed as a present.. n he says this s his 2nd favourite brand.. y 2nd but not 1st huh?? anyway i like seaweed!!!
ok..decided to do this: use the big bag to bring the small pouch back to hostel, then lie on my bed eating seaweed v the cute pillows under my head..haha..

Went to watch teo chew opera v my mum yesterday. Initially we wanted to visit our relatives, who knows none them r at home.. So, we jz went to a temple that has celebration..
When we reached there, we were shocked... cos more than half of the audience were my family members. Uncle, aunt, grandaunt, cousins....... altogether 19.. after a while, my aunt n her family came, adding d number to 24. Then i counted the ppl who r not my relatives. ONLY 12!!!!!
(pict on left shows my family members, pict on the right shows other ppl in front of the stage)
when i was young, i used to go "watch" opera v my mum. Gradually i even knew a few parts of the opera.. haha.. i cant sing well lah.. my mum can really sing, sometimes even better than d actors. She told me wHen she was young, she loved opera till she nearly became an actor of teo chew opera. Luckily she didnt, o else my childhood wud b v the opera troupe...so scary...
besides that, i feel that teochew opera s really a sunset industry..cos all d supporters r 70+, 80+, only my mum n her frens r 50+...slowly they will lose the audience, n then, vanish...

went out v JC2s seniors william alan shan zheng howard... n JC 1s r my gang elin euchoon weiken, but wan xin didn come..aiya..
shud hv taken some picts, but that great shan zheng brought a camera without charged batteries....... so... haiz...
feel quite sad cos they r leaving soon.. they r nice to us, especially william n alan. We totally hv no "generation gap" v them.. n even closer v them compared to some other JC1s... so now they r leaving, next year no ppl to play badminton v, no ppl to crap v n no ppl to hav meals v me liao........ i m so SAD~!!!! haiz..... i wish they r my batch, then we can hv 1 more year together.. budden if they r my year i will b very stressed also, they r super good academically.....
all of all.. wanna say thanks to them n also my frens in this pict (shan zheng is not in the pict, who ask him bring a laoya camera!!) u gav me an excellent year in singapore!! seniors, pls consider staying in singapore ya~~
<-- Hi, i m ur newspresenter...
will i b one?? according to katak, it s quite impossible....
Went to NTU Chinese media workshop last week, organized by NTU, subsidized by Singapore journalist fund… quite a good experience, I learn more abt journalism, diff type of news like internet news n TV news. B4 that, when I was a xue ji, I learnt abt newspaper news. Then when I joined BJ mission, I know wat s it abt radio news….. now I even learnt TV news!! N d most AMAZING part s my group got a small award for internet news making…wow.. very surprising, cos compared to other group, ours s d most simple n short n no much function… but when I was explaining, I tried to say to say this s bcos all other news website r too complicated n messy..haha…toook a TV video in a small saloon in NTU, well..it was a bad job... difficult to deal v e ppl interviewed.. then when we went mediacorp, d newspresenter lin qi yuan was my tour guide!! Wow… cool…
After all these things, I feel that I really love mass com, I think I shud study in sch of info n comm… this has been my dream since sec 2.. after form5 i still dare not jump into it cos i was afraid that it was jz a "hangat-hangat tahi ayam" dream, jz a little gal's dream, not ambition. After years, i still like this area a lot!! but then… m I d right material? The prof said my gp mz b better than B4… now I need 1 more mark to get C……… how…. My interest s there, but my capability may not b there yet… Alan said I can do it d.. there s still 1 more year.. but how bt my other subject? I studied a lot b4 I can get my “okay” promo results, n my maths still sucks..
Ah…dun k liao, I wanna get B4 for my gp in A level!! Jia you u can d!! Fight!!

A good educator may not b a good administrater, so u r not deemed as a good teacher by certain institution. As simple as this.
Somebody told me sth which s quite true:
we r all measured by bell curve when we r students, but not when u r in the workforce.
this means if ur results r not good, as long as u r not that bad compared to the others, then u r ok. But this doesnt apply to working environment. So, if u r in a team in ur company, n unluckily whole of d team dont perform well, even if u r d best of them, u wil b fired........there s no relative standard, but only ABSOLUTE standard. This s reality. So b glad that i m still a student, n b prepared that i m entering workforce soon, in a few years time...
N there s sth i realise abt the land i m standing on now-- scholars r to b groomed
GROOMED means trained to hv better performance. How? do more work. Consequence? u will b GROOMED!! but STRESSED!!
I salute those who dare to make their decisions to leave behind wat they used to n pursue wat they want. Really.
N dun b sad when somebody say u r not playing ur role well. As long as u hv done ur best, there mz b somebody that think that u r d best. At least u urself will think so......
hazy day...... PSI 140..... n i m saying all these very very heavy things...

from her grandma she knew i came 2 study in singapore, she immediately asked her grandma 4 my hp nuimber.. late at night u know.. but some how my hp number jz didnt get to her hand.. maynb her mum stopped it..
sunday nite, i was quite free so i jz online n search things.. then i suddenly tot of her.. so i asked my mum her surname n her sch name.. guess wat? i found her blog!! then i saw her pict in frenster.. erm..look quite different, but stil can c her features.. then i post a msg there v my email address, asking her whether she rmb me...
n yesterday jz b4 i came back singapore, i received her reply n she added me in msn.. then we "xiang1 ren4"~!!! very dramatic right? wow cool.... then due 2 time constraint, we didnt chat much.. we exchange hp number.. n huh.. i knew her mass dance partner, who s a scholar from jb! n she knew my hostel fren, who studied in her sch b4! she was invited by her fren to join asean dance, but she didnt go bcos she got performance... her sch s located at d same road as my hostel... which takes around 10 bus ride..damn near right? yet we ddn meet each other b4.. or rather, even if we meet we also cannot recognise.. haha.....
really very dramatic.....
from lu bo, i knew tt she s a very bubbly n talkative gal, same as me..haha.. budden i think she s doing better than me cos she seemed to enjoy NJ life, s a councillor, n join malay dance..
hope to c her soon!
my poor blog uh... sorry ya... i hv been neglected u for soooooo long
yesterday nite when i was listening radio, i heard d DJ saying tt if every nite when u turn in, u can get into sleep within 10 minutes, tt means u r seriously lack of sleeep.... n i realise nowadays i can jz get into sleep no matter wat my roommate does... straight away pengsan, Through out d promo exam, i didn suffer frm insomnia also... so happy..haha... can get into sleeep s sth very torturing... now? haha giv me more time 2 sleep pls..
the DJ carried on saying tt those who can get into sleep in less than 10 minutes, that means u wud need around 17 hours more sleep.... wow that's scary! so i went to sleep early, even though i was asked to do a detailed outline for my group's written report...wat d helll..i really cant stand n i jz sleep (well.... around 11.30pm lah.. not very early also...after did some of the outline...)
then, right after 5.5 hours (cos normally i sleep for 5.5 hours at night) i woke up on my own... omg my life s soo pathetic..even i can sleep more i also cant sleep more!! went to toilet n carry on sleeping
then jz after a while i heard my hp alarm...haiz..dun want 2 wake up.. so i turned it off... heard some alarms later, my roommates'...but still nobody woke up...carry on my dream..

i dunno d owner, but find it quite true...hehe
Junior Colleges cut short school hours, 0705 take this chance to increase school hoursReported by 0705studentThe final match between Italy and France will begin in less than 4 hours. To make allowance for students staying up late to watch the match, many junior colleges in Singapore pushed back the school opening hours for students to catch enough sleep before coming to school. Schools like CJC, TJC and NYJC are starting school at 9am, among many others. Some schools even declared holiday for that monday, to allow students to rest. After all, research had shown that amount of sleep is related to learning abilities and level of concentration. There is clearly no point to make the students come to school as usual and having 1/3 of them sleeping through the tutorials and lessons for that day. Teachers teach, but students couldn't learn. Some school even pushed over last week's youth day holiday to the aftermath of the match, to allow students to sleep well and rest well before coming to school to study. This smart move demostrated that the authorities of most colleges in Singapore cared for the welfare of their students and understood the importance of having well-rested students coming to the school for lessons.
Very angry with the school policies. I shall write a letter of complaint about some teachers, policies, and the PE department either to the VPs, and if they refuse to accept, or negotiate, then I will write to the press AGAIN.Wii, Student of 0705One exception to this is 0705. In 0705, the authorities live in a totally different dimension. School opens as usual, and many classes even had its lessons extended beyong 6pm. As a result, most 0705 students had to attend around 10hr and 15mins of school lessons this monday with less than 3 hours of sleep the day before. This goes on to show how the school authority never treated its students as students, but rather robots who could listen to all the lessons despite of the amount of sleep they could catch. This clearly showed the inabilitiy of the 0705 authorities to make correct judgement about matters concerning students' welfare. Extending lessons on a day where 1/3 of the students will come in half-awake, shows how wise the authorities can be. Instead of allowing students to learn more with extended timetable this monday, students are going to suffer insufficent sleep and will not even be able to concentrate during lessons.It is interesting to note that the name of 0705's school blog, "Muggers United" was derived from the name of a soccer team, yet the school happily treated as if the match did not exist.Tomorrow when we see junior college students on public transport, the shade of their eyes will clearly distinct the junior college they belong to.

We saw lots n lots n super expensive things.. n no customer there.. such a big contrast v far east plaza
Things sold there r all branded stuff, Gucci, Prada, Dior, Crocodile... ah.. i even feel that d oxygen there has a high-class smell....
A Gucci tie--$250
A crocodile shirt--$300
A Prada Bag--$1200
omg......................... apa ini!! so expensive!! i was wondering how much i shud earn in future to buy one of these things.. or at least, a secondhand...
Used the perfume tester, oh.. so nice....
n SO EXPENSIVE...
all i can say s "wah...wah... n wah....."
Then, we went to a hotel beside it.. it was such an "elegant" hotel.. i feel like wanna get married there... =P
Imagine, u r standing upstair n d bridegroom s downstair, waiting for u 2 walk down... u r wearing a white gown, walk down gracefully... when u reach, he hold ur hand n walk to d front.......the guest applause n giv u their best wishes...
Btw, i told kokteng this, she said:
Imagine, u r standing upstair n d bridegroom s downstair, waiting for u 2 walk down...suddenly...
u fall down...
anyway, d most memorable events that happened when i went home this time r abt driving...
at first, i got my driving license , drive without d driving instructor for d very first time.. n... guess wat.. i used my relative's kancil 2 kiss my mum's car... haha.. luckily it was jz a light scratch, really minor "injury".. if u dun c clearly, u wont find it...
Then, i went to my alma mater.. Hong huei, who got his license at d same time as me, drove to sch.. he gav us a lift from d sch to d restaurant outside d sch..(well, it s around 200m only.. he jz want 2 show us dat he can drive~~)
On d way out, there were a few humps..
The car kept on scratching d floor. HH said it s bcos we were too fat... ok... nvm..
After a while, we found dat d teachers kept pressing d honk.
Ok, since HH s so famous, mayb d teacher jz wanna kacao him... Ppeeeepppeep!!! how come d teacher s sooooooo bo liao?? i turned around n find that d teacher was pointing at HH's car.. i look out.. omg.. d tyre was punctured!! it was not "not enuff air", it was totally baggy!!
Ok.. since all of us on d car hav driving license, we started to use our knowledge learnt from L lesson, trying 2 help him. Eventually, we found that L lesson s too limited.. we only know theory..
Then we asked cao lu's taoke to help...
Finally.. d tyre was changed..
HH asked all of us to hv lunch at cao lu, it s a MUST!!!
Thanx cao lu tao ke!!
N HH, i think u better dun drive too much.. d 1st day u drie kena marah, then nearly bang into a pajero, then tyre puncture...
Oh btw, we forgot to buy 4D!~!!~~
