Uh… Dance?

with 2 comments

I’m supposed to quote Miss Tan Zhi Xu in this entry so here goes:

Had a four hour long exco meeting today. From 1-5 pm.

One conclusion: We are the best exco ever!

Haha, forgive me for being so egoistic. But I really think so. And I think the whole exco thinks so too. Haha, we repeated that point a lot of times today i think… So thickskinned. haha, but. There, Pam, you can quote me now 😀

LOL. We sound self-obssessed man. I think we got carried away with the meeting. But yeah, if you read Zhi Xu’s blog (I’m too lazy to cut and paste the other parts of her post) at one point we were talking so loudly whatever we were discussing wasn’t even confidential anymore. It was like, “HELLO PEOPLE, THIS IS CONFIDENTIAL!” And I think we were laughing pretty loudly there were people studying at the next table that moved away.

Chinese Dancers. TSK TSK!

Only kidding. We got too excited, plus that’s what happens when we’re so bonded. Would’ve been even more fun if the whole batch were there though. I love our batch!

Anyway today was pretty draining. There was PT as usual in the morning. With Blueberry Muffins of course! Wanted to make Banana Nut instead but I almost collapsed last night after coming back from dance (got home at like 9!) so decided I should keep Banana Nut for another occasion and stick to Blueberry. Ah well, practice today was pretty effective ‘cos I think we were more serious too. Muffins are a good thing to keep us motivated! I think!

But yeah, training was followed by a 4-hour, 8-pages-of-minutes long EXCO meeting. So we left school past 5 and once again I almost collapsed when I got home. Settled down for a bit and then had to go off to my cousin’s 21st birthday party.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a little more productive. If I can even get myself out of bed, that is. Wish me luck!

I’m in a super “Alright.” mood right now. Haha don’t exactly know how to define it but yeah, I’m in dire need of a loooong looooooooong nap. Should be in bed by now but I have complex numbers to do.

What a life, huh?

I got sexy bruises from dance today. All the collapsing on the ground has finally made its impact, not that I’m improving, but at least now it looks like I do train after all. Got so much to catch up on! It’s pretty tiring though. But yeah, we all gotta hang in there guys! A couple of weeks more till it all pays off!

Sigh, sigh. Alright then enough rambling shall get on with the arguments and loci and modulus and neverending Argand diagrams.

By the way, my retarded younger brother was being retarded again yesterday. I asked him for a compass (yes, so I could draw my |z – a| = 2 locus neatly, haha) and he told me to get one from his cupboard upstairs. So I did go search in the cupboard. Lo and behold, guess what I found?

A compass. As in North, South, East, West?

I died laughing.

That’s what happens when your brother’s a scout. Amusing huh?

Integration, anyone?

with 3 comments

I’m officially going nuts.

Not like I’m not already nuts enough, but yeah integration’s driving me up up up the wall and soon enough I’m gonna crash on the ground.

Alright graphic enough. Like Suat said, may it be integrated into my system! Highly doubt it though. I’m gonna laugh looking at the Math paper tomorrow. Or cry, rather.

For the record,

Blogger’s been giving me problems so I decided to give this highly unexplored version a try. Looks a little queer though.

Laughter, the best medicine

A woman rubbed a lamp and out popped a genie. “Do I get a wish?”
“Yup, what will it be?”
“See this map? I want these countries here to stop fighting.”
“They’ve been at war for thousands of years. I’m not that good,” he said. “What else?”
“Well, I’d love a good man. One who’s considerate, loves kids, likes to cook and doesn’t watch sports all day.”
“OK,” sighs the genie. “Let me see that map again.”


Alright I think all the integration I’ve been doing’s getting to me. Set me in the mood for -.- jokes. This one’s true though! Good guys are a tough find.

Post-CTs Mugging

leave a comment »

Oh dear, I think I’m hooked onto Desperate Housewives again! Watched 4 episodes till 3 a.m. in the morning last night, and I only stopped cos my eyes were really red.

Before that Kaye and I went to watch Bean’s Holiday – retarded show! Had quite a good laugh though. Good way to destress I must say. Then went to meet Estee, Shuwei and Sixiu for a late dinner at AMK HUB – interesting place! Compared to what used to be there, at least.

Tomorrow’s the first time I’m gonna be running in a pretty long time. Hope I don’t faint and die of exhaustion. Was supposed to bake for the dancers but I don’t have ingredients and I didn’t go buy them today! Darn it.

I bought a nice top today 🙂 Highly frivolous of me. But yeah, Kaye said it’s okay to be frivolous once in a blue moon. Excuses, excuses.

Okay better get back to integration. Missed the Math CT ‘cos of my grandma’s funeral, so while everyone’s celebrating the end of their agony, I’m mugging for Math! That’s the way man.

I’ll miss you, Ah Ma.

My grandma didn’t make it.

10 months of struggle. At least now we know she’s no longer in pain. Plus she fought so hard, she lived past the 6 months the doctor said she’d had left.

Must say it’s gonna be difficult without her; Saturday evenings without my grandmother to make sure we’ve all had dinner – never really imagined what it’d be like without her.

But we all gotta learn to deal with such things I guess. Death’s part and parcel of life, no?

Doubt I’ll ever forget this year’s March term break – the passing of 2 very loved ones within a week. I think we’re all coping pretty well though, aside from my grandfather. He’s been in such a trance for the past week since my grandma’s condition deteriorated and it really hurt to see him cry.

Ah well. My cousins and I did a slideshow as a tribute to my grandma. Looking at all the photos of her in different parts of the world, I’ve come to realise she was such an adventurer. Someday I wanna be just like her.

The funeral’s this coming Wednesday so we’ve been pretty busy at the wake. Having so many people around helps take our minds off things though, and I guess it helps having your loved ones around for support too, staying strong for one another.

Pretty shacked so I think I’ll go get some rest now.

More food for thought.

I’ve got so much on my mind right now, I don’t even know where to begin. Funny how so much can happen in such a short time huh?

Anyway my uncle said something that got me thinking before the funeral today. We’re all losing our sense of what’s really important – our family. I hope it isn’t only when things like that happen that we start reflecting on what we’ve been doing, whether we’ve been treating the people we love the way we should, whether we’ve been paying too much attention to all the wrong things. It really hurt to see the people I love break down, but I guess it’s on occasions like these that make us realise we have to stop taking others for granted before it’s too late.

Depressing post I say. Helps get things off my chest though. Went to spend some time with my grandma after the funeral; she’s really weak and in so much pain right now, I really wish there was something I could do that might help.

I shouldn’t even be here so this shall be all.

What If She’s An Angel
Brad Paisley

There’s a man standing on the corner
With a sign saying,”Will work for food”
You know the man
You see him every morning
The one you never give your money to
You can sit there with your window rolled up
Wondering when the lights going to turn green
Never knowing what a couple more bucks
In his pocket might mean

What if he’s an angel sent here from Heaven?
And he’s making certain that you’re doing your best
To take the time to help one another
Brother are you gonna pass that test?
You can go on with your day to day
Trying to forget what you saw in his face
Knowing deep down it could’ve been his savin’ grace
What if he’s an angel?

There’s a man
And there’s a woman
Living right above you in apartment G
There’s alot of noise coming from through ceiling
And it don’t sound like harmony
You can sit there with your TV turned up
While the words and his anger fly
Come tomorrow when you see her with her shades on
Can you look her in the eye?

What if she’s an angel sent here from heaven?
And she’s making certain that you’re doing your best
To take the time to help one another
Brother are you gonna pass that test?
You can go on with your day to day
Trying to forget what you saw in her face
Knowing deep down it could’ve been her savin’ grace
What if she’s an angel?

A little girl, on daddy’s lap
Hiding her disease with a baseball cap
You can turn the channel
Most people do
But what if you were sitting in her daddy’s shoes?

Maybe she’s an angel
Sent here from Heaven
And she’s making certain that you’re doing your best
To take the time to help one another
Brother are you gonna pass that test?
You can go on with your day to day
Trying to forget what you saw in her face
Knowing deep down it could’ve been her savin’ grace
What if she’s an angel?

I chanced upon this song on the net while looking for new nice songs. I think the lyrics are really touching, plus it makes us think twice about how we’re all living our lives. Sometimes it’s these little things we never notice that really matter.

Ah well, just some food for thought. It’s been one heck of a week (or almost a week, rather). My grandma’s condition hasn’t been very stable so we’ve constantly been on our feet, especially my mum and her siblings. Plus my great grandmother who turned 99 just 2 weeks ago passed away very peacefully in her sleep last Sunday, so both my paternal and maternal relatives have been pretty busy. One good thing that came out of this is that my cousins and I have been meeting up more often now, at the wake and at Gran’s when we go over to visit, and I think it’s somehow brought us a lot closer; we kinda lost that for a while. But apart from the shock that hit us initially, I think we’re all doing a little better.

Other than that it’s been mugging and more mugging. I need glue to keep me sitting down. Every half an hour I have to get up and move around. Not good! Needless to say, this blog post is just another product of my tendency to procrastinate, haha. Maybe I should go jog or something, at least that’ll a little more productive.

Alright then, till next Thurs!

I’m alive!

Quite a miracle considering I haven’t been sleeping much. And on second thought, maybe not having my internet work isn’t such a bad idea after all! I’m now more inclined to keep up with schoolwork, hope I don’t burn out though.

Decided I should give myself a break (when CTs are like 2 weeks away, sigh) and watch Pearl Harbour. Horribly sad story, especially ‘cos Josh Hartnett’s character died! Actually I think I was watching the show more for him than for the story itself, haha. Kate Beckinsale’s really pretty though! Alright shall stop sounding like such an airhead.

There are so many movies I wanna watch! Hugh Jackman (ahhh) is starring in a new movie! And there’s Dreamgirls, The Pursuit of Happyness, Paris Je T’aime, Music & Lyrics… The timing’s just perfect, CTs are in no time and I’ve barely touched anything. Scrap that, I haven’t touched anything at all! Goodness gracious me. And A Level results were released today, in a year that’s gonna be us!


Tomorrow’s gonna be pretty exciting though! My classmates and I are attending a pretty interesting long-awaited event LOL. And then I’ll be meeting up with my 6 long lost friends!

Okay I’m not exactly in the mood to blog. Maybe I should go sleep instead. Or mug. LOL who am I kidding.
