Silent Night Was Not So Silent After All

We practically sang through the whole night, though I prefer to call it sound pollution, for myself at least. I'm pretty sure everyone there would've agreed that we've gone nuts when Wai Seng, Yi Wang and I sang Staying Alive.

A moronic Waja driver made us miss the turning, we ended up paying extra RM2.60 toll fare and wasted a good whole 20 minutes just to get back to the turning. Other than that, a perfect night.

Yee Lyn, thanks for the great night.

Life shorten by 10 years

I've just increased my risk of getting diabetes by tenfold.

Thursday, December 21, 2006


Mamak at a super dark corner is scary, especially when you're facing a flight of stairs leading into darkness.

I can create disco bling-bling effect with my phone, hence proving SonyEricsson's superiority in the beng department.

I've been inhaling too much second hand smoke lately.

Weng Kin went nuts yesterday, probably due to Wai Seng's sudden return.

Hsueh Ming still owes us sandwiches.

I eat more than Daniel, not that it matters much.

I've been waking up at 11 am regardless of what time I sleep.

And the thought of 4 guys happily skipping around in supermarket is disturbing.

Breathing in Malaysian air.....

is probably not as refreshing as doing so in Singapore. Well mostly because I'm studying in a side that is relatively underdeveloped (still better than the squalid regions in Malaysia mind you) with lesser vehicles and factories that'll rob you of your fresh air.

But still, it feels good nonetheless. Home sweet home they say.

I've realised that I've become a paranoid while I was taking the commuter back to Subang from KL Central. Every 5 minutes or so I would feel my pockets just to make sure that my wallet, passport and cellphone were still with me. It's so much different compared to when I was in MRT.

Got back to home safe and sound (despite paying a whooping RM15 as taxi fare to get myself from Subang commuter station back to my house, couldn't be bothered though, too damn tired to negotiate). Mum was the only one who was home, dad and bro had gone out to work. Took a good long bath before I fainted on my good old soft and mushy bed. Your very own bed is the very best place to be after a long journey, and I do not doubt that at all.

Friday night and the whole Saturday were spent with family (parents miss me too much I guess), and I had my second buffet in 3 days. What followed on Sunday morning was a burnt tongue, though I had not the faintest idea how I've got it. It might just be the delayed effect from popping takoyaki balls into my mouth during the sushi buffet. My tongue still hurts now.

The whole Sunday was spent watching Death Note anime. The storyline is absolutely fantastic. I think I'll get hold of the manga after they've finished subbing all the anime episodes.

Went out on Monday with Hsueh Ming, Wai Seng and Weng Kin for lunch. Lots of catching up. And Hsueh Ming was feeling somewhat rich (unwillingly perhaps) so he paid for our Nasi Lemak Ayam. He came back from UK after all, he would have definitely felt richer, richer than us at least. =P

Either way, thanks Hsueh Ming for the lunch. And the ride as well. XD

After we stopped by at Summit because HM wanted to buy a cue stick, naturally he was conned into buying a slightly crooked one and remained stubborn despite us telling him to change to a better one. As long as you're happy HM. Jian Wen then joined us at Pyramid, and we bought stuffs. Played snooker after that, kena tarpau by Jian Wen first round and managed to squeeze a very much undeserved victory in the second round.

After that we went to William's and surprise surprise, Bryan also joined us. He's back from Portsmouth for one week to attend his sister's wedding, and what great timing too! At least he got to see Wai Seng one last time this year before Wai Seng made his way back to Singapore on Tuesday night.

Was out the whole day again today and I'll probably sound like a broken record if I were to recap things that happened today so I think I'll just leave it here. Tomorrow I'll get to see my secondary school friends!! Yippee!!

Not exactly amusing

I owe a girl lunch because I've lost a bet to her.

What bet?

What time will Shaun wake up......

Friday, November 17, 2006

I'm not myself

I think I've been concentrating too hard lately. The effects are showing now...... I had headache right after my math paper, maybe the headache started during the exam but I concentrated so much that I wasn't aware of it...... but that's beside the point.

And I've actually spent 7 hours straight in library to study Econs!!!

I'm slowly succumbing to the path of eternally zombified superb ninjahood kiasu-ism. There's no turning back now.

This is what Singapore does to you. Horrible I say, HORRIBLE.

Friday, November 10, 2006

OMG I'm gonna flunk!!!

I must say, today is probably the saddest day of my university life, probably even the saddest day of my life.

I've received my second Physics quiz marks this morning...... and...... and...... I...... I...... got......

93 marks!!!!!

Holy crap that's 7 marks worse than my first Physics quiz marks...... 7!!!!!

Why? Why? Why didn't I get 200 marks? In fact, I should get 200 marks for just being present for the quiz. I know, I know...... I can only get 100 marks maximum but I totally deserve that 200 marks for being the obvious genius. I mean, how can I not be a genius? NTU begged me to study in their university and even offered me scholarship without me applying it. Singapore government is eagerly awaiting my service in Singapore registered companies, they'll probably offer me citizenship as well when I graduate without me applying for it. Newton and Einstein even popped out of their graves and kow tow to me when I passed by.

It's the beginning of the end. My marks will subsequently drop by 7 each time I attempt a quiz. And then I will fail my exam, and I won't need to waste money to buy a return ticket to Singapore after my December holidays. OMG I've started a sentence with the word "and", I'm getting dumber by the minute!!! At this rate I'll be packing my stuffs and balik kampung by tomorrow!!! Damn damn damn!!!

I foresee myself becoming a road sweeper in the future. My children will be drug dealers and my grandchildren will probably be whores and giggolos. My great grandchildren will be superb ninjas.ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Disclaimer : This entry is done as a parody to Hsueh Ming's entry. The author apologises if any party is offended by this entry. If you're still offended by this entry after the apology, feel free to bitch to me, but I will unleash my superb ninja skills on you and you'll not survive not remove this entry.

And no, I didn't even pass by the graves of Sir Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein. They might pop out of their graves when I pass by, but most likely they do it just to scare the shit out of me.

Waiting on the world to change

The hole on my blanket has just got bigger. I think I have more wet dreams lately it has something to do with the weird dreams I have lately.

Now I feel like a hobo freezing in the ghettos every night. And the rain doesn't help either.

On a totally unrelated note, this song by John Mayer is really good. It's a song you listen to when you want to get away from all those noise and gives you the sort of casual feel. It makes you feel like just stop whatever you're doing, sit back, relax and just listen to this song. So it's not exactly the song you'd want to listen to when you're studying for a test tomorrow.

The lyrics makes you stop and ponder a while about the world around you, which is a refreshing change from the usual I-love-you cheesy lyrics and I-hate-everything-around-me emo lyrics.

John Mayer - Waiting On The World To Change

me and all my friends
we're all misunderstood
they say we stand for nothing and
there's no way we ever could
now we see everything that's going wrong
with the world and those who lead it
we just feel like we don't have the means
to rise above and beat it

so we keep waiting
waiting on the world to change
we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

it's hard to beat the system
when we're standing at a distance
so we keep waiting
waiting on the world to change
now if we had the power
to bring our neighbors home from war
they would have never missed a Christmas
no more ribbons on their door
and when you trust your television
what you get is what you got
cause when they own the information, oh
they can bend it all they want

that's why we're waiting
waiting on the world to change
we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

it's not that we don't care,
we just know that the fight ain't fair
so we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

and we're still waiting
waiting on the world to change
we keep on waiting waiting on the world to change
one day our generation
is gonna rule the population
so we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

You know....

that your life has reached an all time low when your past time activity choices are limited to mugging Materials Science and watching Street Fighter II clips only.

Warning, not for faint hearted

Honestly, I don't like to compete. But I'm an ego maniac......

Funny how I don't like competition and yet I have the urge to compare myself with others who are better than me.

I've never felt more contradictory than ever.

I don't enjoy competing and yet I want to be competitive so that I can be better than the rest, and maybe even the best, if possible.

And I feel the frustration more than ever...... I feel out of place...... I feel so unnatural, so hollow...... I don't even know if I'm myself anymore.

Say What?

While I was having afternoon nap, my phone rang.

Me : Hello?

Friend : Hey erm...... do you know what's the formula to find the sector of a circle?

Me : .......................

Thanks for disrupting my nap over something that you've learned in Form 3. Next time you should try this immensely informative website before you ask these simple questions. Trust me, it'll save both you and me a lot of trouble.

Hari Raya

It didn't feel like Hari Raya at all. No banners, no discounts, no huge amplifiers blasting Hari Raya songs, only Malays in their traditional outfits...... both male and female.

And that's about it.
Wai Seng, Eugene, Kek Yi, Daniel, Ken Shaun and I went to Jurong Point ( A shopping mall near my uni ) for lunch. Yi Wang preferred wanking than going out with us went to Johor with his family to celebrate Hari Raya. After lunch we went to the cinema to buy tickets, but Rob-B-Hood only had one showtime, which was 9.20 pm.

Since we were bored anyway, we decided that we would come back to Jurong Point for dinner and watch the film after that. So we bought the tickets first and went back to uni.

Before I continue, Rob-B-Hood is a Cantonese film starring Jackie Chan and Louis Khoo. So naturally we would've expected the film to be in Cantonese, but we've forgotten that we're in Singapore...... they freaking DUBBED it into Mandarin!!! MANDARIN!!!

There goes the casualness you get in most cantonese movies...... there goes the jokes that will make you laugh only if it's in cantonese....... and it's awfully awkward to watch Jackie Chan and Louis Khoo NOT speaking in cantonese. Yes, some of the jokes were funny even though it's in Mandarin, but it would've been funnier if it's in Cantonese...... those Singaporeans just don't get it. PUT MANDARIN SUBTITLE IF YOU MUST, DON'T FREAKING DUB IT!!!

At least the show was good, despite in Mandarin...... or I would've taken the 7 SGD and shoved it up cinema manager's ass.

Now then...... I'm very tempted to watch The Prestige. Anyone? =P

Meet food eat chick

Oh I ate chicks alright...... the drumsticks were good. =P

On the whole the gathering was rather uneventful. We just basically sat there, waited for food to arrive, got tormented by the smell ( when you're VERY hungry, anything goes ) while eagerly waited for the person in charge to tell us to eat.

There were more people there than the amount that King Fei told us to expect. But the male to female ratio was more like 8 to 1. Funny...... last I recalled the ministers reported that the ratio was 1:3 in universities. I can only conclude that the ministers lied because there's no way the girls would be able to resist me to not attend the gathering Perhaps the girls foresaw that most guys would swarm the gathering just so that they could meet more girls.

So yeah, we sat down and started to mingle around. Then Shaun - decided that I could use some fame myself - stood beside me and practically shouted my name in the room while pointing at me. I suspect that he wants an arranged marriage for me now seeing how passive I tend to be.

Nothing happened though, everyone was just stunned for that few seconds and went back to their own conversations. At least I know I won't get any extra stalkers.

We left earlier because Shaun and Teng Ean wanted to study and get their projects done. I got to know a few people here and there, mostly through Shaun or King Fei. Oh well......

When they care a tad bit too much

There'll be a meet-food-eat-chick session tomorrow, and it better be worth the $3.50 that I paid for. Not expecting too much, just 10 hot chicks' phone numbers as long as the food is good. At least Shawn and Teng Ian won't be insinuating things during the gathering because Yoke Hwa won't be there.

They seem to be more excited about me meeting girls than myself. To a certain extent, they're like parents who suspect their children are homosexual and are extremely relieved to be proven wrong. I have an uneasy feeling that they will secretly plan a marriage date for me when I do have a girlfriend. They'll probably giggle like those aunties in chinese shows - when their nephew/niece is getting married, as though the nephew/niece is their only child - while deciding the most auspicious date for the marriage.

I don't even know if I should be happy about that......

Hall 6 Idol?

Was in my room doing my homework when all of a sudden I heard frogs croaking people singing. Apparently Singapore Idol is pretty much a craze here until Hall 6 decided to have one of its own. The audience (Read : Residents) however, weren't as thrilled....... most of us, at least.

I was never a big fan of Malaysian Idol so I didn't see a point to go down to the concourse and join the crowd. Furthermore I still had not finished my tutorials. However, I still had the privilege of listening to the songs...... no thanks to the humungous amplifiers.

The croaking singing initially was quite fine, though there were a few occasions in which the singers went off-tune. No big deal....... just a bunch of amatuers having fun. My roommate, Shawn, was groaning though because he couldn't sleep with all the noise outside.

I continued with my tutorial and Shawn, who obviously realised that he wouldn't be getting any sleep anyway, studied for his quiz.

Next thing we knew, some guy screamed as though he was being raped by an old lady. My superb ninja skills and spider sense curiousity kicked in and I leapt out through the window to save the hysteria stricken rape victim went out to have a look. The voice belonged to a guy who, for some reason, thought he was one of the Bee Gees and sang the song at the highest pitch possible. Unfortunately for us, he sounded like his balls were grabbed tightly by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Shawn almost pissed in his pants, not knowing whether to laugh or to cry. One thing's for sure, he'd still be able to sleep after the ordeal because he's too tired...... I on the other hand......

Now I'm blasting my Ipod to minimize the effect....

Yes, I'm bored...

Signs of haze getting REALLY bad :

  1. Smokers no longer spend money on cigarettes, they just sit outside for one good hour and take deep breaths.
  2. You're search frantically for the theme park, at the same time wondering why it is so hot in your jacket.
  3. Your roommate enters the room and you wonder if he's hiding a smoked BBQ pigeon under his clothes.
  4. Fire alarm goes off every 5 minutes and nobody seems to care.
  5. You take a bath, comes out of the bathroom and immediately goes back into the bathroom to bathe again.
  6. Everyday you see dead birds all over the ground where a tree is nearby.
These are probably the signs you observe when you're either in Malaysia or Singapore. I shudder at the things that I might be seeing in Indonesia.

Apparently I can have a whole loaf of bread and peanut butter as lunch and dinner if I want to.

Apparently I can subconsciously make whoever's chatting with me through MSN to imagine me wearing the tulan expression.

Apparently replying to a nudge on MSN with a "yes?" can be very fierce, at least if I'm the one who's replying.

Apparently the yellow spot that you see in the picture in my last entry is my urine is part of the pattern on my bedsheet.

Apparently reading crap spewed by Malaysian politicians can be very interesting when you're bored.

It seems that I have Econs CA on Monday, apparently I'm procastinating.

Apparently I haven't revised my Econs, but that doesn't stop me from goofing around.

Did I say Malaysian politics can be hugely entertaining when you're bored?

Apparently I'm bored.

The Potato Strikes Back

"Darth Potato,it is time."

"Yes Master...."

"Bring the Apple Troopers and Orange Fighters as well,we must wipe out the rebels."

"Yes Master Darth I-Look-Hideous."

"You see,in this integration......the APPLE cannot be integrated with respect to ORANGE.They are,however,linked by POTATO......*insert more absurd analogies involving fruits and vegetables*"

You know you're royally screwed when your math lecturer decides to use fruits and vegetables as analogies to teach integration......TWICE.

Mid Autumn Festival(MAF) would have been a blast if I am not part of the social subcommittee.Most of the time is spent toiling to ensure that the celebration goes smoothly so I don't get to join the celebration. =(

But I have no qualms,not when I see the smiles of my very own hall people and also some post MAF events which are exclusive to the committee.

Some background before I continue......there is a pond in my hall compound.The infamous "ponding" sessions take place here.In case you're wondering,ponding means throwing your friend into the pond.Now I must say that the pond isn't exactly where you will want to be under any circumstances,unless you have to choose between septic tank and the pond.

I am supposed to be one of the ponding victims that night but my superb ninja skill allows me to blend into the night and they can't find me.Let's just say that they've ponded everyone else other than me. ;)

On a totally unrelated note,I have been under Hsueh Ming's narcissist list for quite some time and I feel obliged to live up to his expectation,albeit not much.

Obviously I'm second to none when it comes to looks,I bet all the girls are falling left and right now after they've seen this picture. That's me with my new specs and short hair if you haven't already noticed.

New age what could this sophisticated product be??

A PAIL!!!!I wonder what life changing features they've included.....

This however takes the cake.The picture speaks for itself.

Potato theory

A whole week of holiday does De Zien no good.

Well actually it does,but what happens after that may not be as good.

Either way,back in uni and started the second half of my first semester.Nothing fanciful really....apart from the fact that our superb comedian gave his last lecture today.Not that his jokes are absolutely fantastically orgasmically's just that he always tells them with a straight face and we have no idea whether he's seriously joking or jokingly serious.That alone is more than enough to outclass most of the random jokers I meet in my life.

Had my math CA today.Thanks to my prophecy and my superb ninja skills other students from my tutorial group kaypohing,we managed to get the questions and worked out the answers before my tutor came in.Ok,so I didn't exactly tell the rest about my prophecy(apart from Yi Wang) prior to the CA,but it doesn't stop me from taking the credits either. =P

The shocker came during Math lecture.Our professor used potato as an analogy of differentiation(chain rule).As if that wasn't bad enough,he went on to use the potato analogy on INTEGRATION.God knows if he has fetish for potatos.

"You differentiate the outer part of the equation before you proceed to the inner part,just like you're peeling potato layer by layer."
"For integration using substitution method,you replace the potato into 'u' now is the potato"

I won't be surprised if he decides to take over the world with his lunatic potato army some day.

Goodbye Highbury

Monday, September 18, 2006



Arsenal has dominated the game and grabbed their much deserved first EPL victory.

It can't get any better than this...grabbing our first victory and smashing our close rival's 100% victory record.A huge ego booster for Arsenal.

Credits to Fabregas with his superb set up,Adebayor for once(fortunately,or unfortunately) able to finish an important goal and also Lehmann for his incredible saves(notably so when he stops Ole's and Brown's attempts).Of course,the rest are equally worth praising for their relentless efforts.

Rosicky is very hardworking and threatening.Eboue,Djourou,Toure and Gallas for their great defence.And the whole team for their superb coordination.

It is a good game and Manchester United put up a good fight as well.

Now things look much better for Arsenal,but not so good for me though....still haven't finished my math tutorial. =P

Off to bed,I'll just wake up at 5 and finish my tutorial...

Clashes of the titans

Ah...the long awaited clashes of the titans in EPL:

Arsenal vs Manchester United
Liverpool vs Chelsea

Arsenal and Liverpool will be the underdogs in these 2 clashes.No surprise there really,things aren't really going in our favour lately.

Arsenal - 2 points in 3 matches,the worst EPL campaign start that Arsene Wenger has during his years in Arsenal.The only consolation we have is that we're still doing fine in ECL.The fact that Giggs is out of action also makes things favourable for us,but it might be offset by the possibility of Van Persie and Henry not being able to join us tonight.Perhaps Adebayor will miraculously become our finisher and score a hat trick,or Julio Baptista samba his way into Manchester's net(with the ball one cares if you decide to dance around aimlessly if you're not holding the ball...your teammates and fans might decide to throw pizza at you but that's beside the point),tricking everyone along the way....I can only hope.

Liverpool - 3-0 loss to Everton is really a big tight slap in Liverpool's face,a real ego demolisher(Hsueh Ming don't kill me for bringing this up =P).A draw with PSV may serve as a slight confidence booster for them,and also the fact that Chelsea isn't really in their top form lately.

May the underdogs win tonight in their respective matches.

In honour of the striker that we hate to see most in the field against us prior to his departure from Manchester United:
Perfect timing seeing that tonight is the first clash between us and Manchester after his departure.Enjoy.

Took the CA(continual assessment,something like a quiz....difference is it contributes to my final results) for Material Science yesterday.70%.....ok lah....there's still 1 more CA to improve the situation. =P

Well,I've just received an email from the MAE(Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering) Publication director regarding the upcoming tasks.Next Tuesday there'll be a meeting to decide who become what....either designer,writer or photographer for the magazines.

Thursday evening is going to be the subcom night and we're required to do a coverage on that as well.Although it's not explicitly stated,but I suppose it's hinted that attendance is compulsory for us.Not complaining here,I'm going to get free food and know more chi...forget the latter part.

That aside I also have another task at hand now....actually 2.One is to study Life Sciences for my upcoming CA and the brainstorm events for the Mid-Autumn Festival in my Hall of Residence.

What's Mid-Autumn Festival?Mooncake Festival lah.I thought only Malaysians and Mainland Chinese(though inevitably in Mainland Chinese case) are notorious for direct literal translation from Mandarin to English,apparently Singaporeans aren't really that far behind us in this department.Well at least their literal translation doesn't sound Beng-ish or as absurdly hilarious as the translation that Mainland Chinese does....

In fact it sounds so much more sophisticated than Mooncake Festival.First time I heard it,I thought it has something to do with Autumn season...probably celebrated by Westerners/Mainland Chinese/Japanese/Korean and everyone else decides to jump the bandwagon(Halloween and Christmas anyone?).And frankly I would've given him/her a blank stare should an ang mor approach me and ask me,"What do you Chinese do on Mid-Autumn Festival?" followed by,"Why ask me?Isn't this you ang mors' festive season?".

Perhaps they're doing this direct literal translation for the sake of Mainland Chinese.

Serve Noon Festival and Clean Stuffy Day anyone?

Nature of Malaysians

All talk and no action makes Malaysia lack its competence.

Seriously,how many times do we have to bring that up?
Non-bumis are not satisfied because they contribute most of the government tax while bumis are ripping most of the gains(well actually,rich bumis with connections who abuse the loopholes in the system).Bumis unwilling to budge because they're too comfortable with this system.Nothing gets done,after that things quiet down for a while until some joker comes along his merry way and decides to play racial card.Then we have the whole cycle again.What's the whole point of the debate if VIABLE solutions are not offered?

Sure,the system should be restructured to help ALL the poors instead of getting abused by certain parties.But how?That's where we all stop short.Rather than sitting behind your monitor and debate endlessly,knowing that it wouldn't change the situation much,why not do something that WILL actually change the situation?

Unless of course,your sole purpose of doing that is showing other netizens how intelligent you are.If that's the case,go and get laid.Oh wait,on second thought,better not,I'm afraid you'll only produce offsprings who are exactly like you.Here's a better suggestion,go and get vasectomy done for the better of mankind.We don't need "intelligent" whiners like you who refuse to suggest any viable solution.

I believe that most of the young adults in Malaysia do not bother to vote.So......why are they complaining when they could not even care less about the basic right that a citizen has?

You do not deserve any right if you're not going to use it.

Well,the second level is more like a shopping mall than Pasar Malam(status upgrade as the level gets higher?Will I get a shopping mall at third level then?)Anyway,the shop spaces are more well defined and the vendors can't be bothered to get any speakers(means no more horribly made dance music assaulting my ears,yay!!) .There are lots of manicure shops at this level,and we saw one MAN getting his nails done.He HAS to be one of those on the verge of turning gay.And look what I've found....
Dildos anyone?

This shop is just like "I Need House" in Sunway Pyramid.Anyway,we leave the high class Pasar Malam and proceed to another mall,a real shopping mall,with an interesting concept in its architecture.

It feels like we're walking in the streets back in the Kesultanan Melayu Melaka era,minus the fact that people here aren't dressed like the people in those days.There are stalls set up in the middle of the path as you can see in the few pictures above.And one particularly deserved mentioning - the stall name is "Deceptive Wires",guess what the stall sells......KEY CHAINS!Deceptive indeed,we're fooled by the name.I'm so gonna say this everytime I buy a new key chain,"Yo wassup my man,check out my new bling-bling deceptive wires!"
Malay Street!!But no Malay restaurants.....where's my nasi lemak!!??


And so we took the MRT from Orchard.

This is where you buy the MRT "touch-n-go" style card.You can get 1 dollar refund when you return the card to the same machine after your journey.
Another view of the MRT station.

And we came to this "pasar".

You see,this "pasar"(or rather,high class pasar malam) is more like an intermediate of Pasar Malam and shopping mall.You do get the best of both worlds.On one hand,you get the comfort(air conditioned and sheltered),neglecting the fact that you have practically no personal space(at least it's better than sharing space with some sweaty ah pak).On the other hand,you get the loudness(in this case,the vendors blasting dance songs on their speakers while in Pasar Malam,it's coming from the vendors themselves).
They even have a second level!!!How's that for a high class Pasar Malam?=P


Yi Wang's friend,Emily,and her family came down to Singapore to visit Cynthia(who is her elder sister and our senior in NTU) yesterday.Naturally being bored and busybody,I've tagged along with them to go to Orchard.

We were supposed to take the 199 bus together before 10.30am but as The Principle of Normal-Students'-Saturday-Wake-Up-Time would have it,we were late.Can't really blame us though,we were happily having this:

2 packets of rice,2 packets of prawn,1 packet of chicken,1 packet of fried crab,1 packet of lamb and 1 more packet of fish(not in the picture) as supper the night before and slept at around 3am.

Nevermind that....Yi Wang,Wai Seng,Cynthia,Gladys and I met up in the bus instead,and took the MRT at Boon Lay to get to Orchard,where we would meet Emily and her parents.What I didn't expect was the torment I had to go through before we found Emily - walking around the foodcourt in an empty stomach.When you're hungry,anything that doesn't smell like garbage is an aroma.

Their foodcourts are nowhere near the medans we have in Malaysia.You would never thought you're in a foodcourt in the first place if they didn't put the big flashing neon sign that screams "I'm a freaking foodcourt!!!"(ok they didn't,but it's something along that line).And for those who miss Wai Seng's face:

Shopping spree(more like WINDOW shopping spree) started once we had finished our lunch.When girls are shopping,guys' roles are (a)carry their shopping bags (b)wait for them outside the clothes shop (c)give opinions on the clothes that they try on,only to have the opinions to be ignored.Fortunately we only had to fulfill role (b).The girls didn't buy any clothes because there wasn't any sales going on.(Singapore Grand Sales is an annual event...around June or July,unlike Malaysia Grand Sales)And we were met by this sight when we stepped out of Wisma Atria:

I pity trees that are forced to wear polka dot boxers by some lunatic Japanese artist.Where are the tree huggers when we actually need them?Then again,the lunatic Japanese artist might very well wrap the tree huggers along with the trees.

We proceeded to Bugis for more (window) shopping...which I'll continue in the next post.

This is a short one,I'll post a longer one maybe during the weekend,or tomorrow =P.
