back in melb on fri night. i don't like my last nights in spore. alwayz feel so emotional. well luckily everything was fine when i came. chunfei and jess tiara came to pick me up, so nice of them. den visited jess and her mum. it felt so strange to come back to my place. everything was juz weird weird weird. luckily juen was arnd, kept me company. things were alright the next day.
well uni started. today's lect was gd. watched a very interesting video abt conjoined twins. they are conjoined at from the belly button on. very interesting to see how they can cordinate their movements. sharne's lessons are alwayz gd. 9 o'clock lesson, for the next 3 days. i hv fridays off. haha!!
cant think of anything interesting to blog abt, except seeing my wonderful friends again. strange to come back again..
last few days in spore before flying back alone on fri morning. still have some stuff to do here, like visiting the dentist and look for semi-formal clothes. well haven been looking, haha...will do so tml. ok i promise i will go swimming this afternoon!! (if the weather is gd, hee)
i love weekends. going out with family for meals and shopping arnd. although it is like a routine, it is something i will definitely miss when i am in melb. like on sun, we will go for lunch after service and go somewhere to walk after that. hmm...no more weekends with family till maybe the end of the yr. speaking of sun, sermon had been gd. been going thru the book of Psalms. i feel God is speaking to me thru this book!! God is wonderful, His grace is sufficient!!
family going over melb for my graduation at the end of the yr, so that's something to look forward to.
a lot of things happened today. ok not a lot lah..firstly met up with yingyuan and caught up with her. nothing happened yet. den after that met up with juen. first funny thing happened. i asked to her come to mos burger to look for me since yingyuan n i were still eating. den when she came, apparently she saw the back of my hair and walked towards me, looked at me and walked out of mos burger. she called me after tt and asked where i was. and apparently i was walking after her and talking to her at the same time. she even saw me first. it is funny lah. i think is becoz she changed her dressing style and hair and she said my hairstyle changed. ok after tt went arnd looking for a semi-formal wear for lee-ean's 21st. did not find any yet. went paragon sushi tei to hv dinner. btw sushi there is fantastic. ok before we left to pay, we roughly calculated the amt and was abt $24-25. and when we went to the counter and the bill was $102. both of us were like 'wat!!' den the cashier went to check, came back and keyed in and it cost $50+, we were still like 'how can it be'. in the end we finally got the right amt to pay. wat a shock, imagine having to pay $100 for dinner for 2!!! nuts!! i hv weak heart, hahaha....oh one last funny thing. amy din recognise us. she actually walked towards us and din see us and continued walking on. my goodness, how many things can happen in a day??
went library to return book and walked to parkway. spent a lot todae, buying bdae presents, some accessories and jay chou vcd!! finally bought it. but i cant seem to take the cds out. too tight!!! i think i saw my sec 4 form teacher while waiting for my dad to pick me up. he was talking to some students prob from chung cheng. din dare to say hi coz there is a very high chance he wouldnt recognise me. it's been too long since sec sch days...
a lot of ppl going to back to melb this few days. my turn is coming soon. dunnoe if i am feeling happy or sad. maybe like i said before, the bitter-sweet feeling would be the best description.
yest was another slack day again. planned on going swimming, but din......there wasnt sun all the time so there was an excuse for me not to go. and moreover i wasnt feeling too well and juz den i saw an advert on tv saying shldnt exercise when not feeling well. so all the signs pointing to me not to go exercise, hahaha!!! well see todae, dunnoe wat my plans are...prob continue staring at this screen.
wow, the civil defence siren was on exactly at 12.05pm. gave us a shock, it was so loud.
i think this guy is shuai. reminds me of jimmy lin too. he is from shanghai called Bao Jian Feng. i say until he my frend liddat, haha...he is an actor lah. well i dun normally watch china shows, but one fine night, i can't slp so i flipped thru the channels and saw this show abt students and teachers and i was intrigued. i was intrigued not by the gd looks of the ppl in the show lah!! interested because i nv really watch modern china shows and want to see how they act. not bad actually. they speak very proper chinese. not like the spore shows. it is something like GTO if u ppl rem. hopefully i will catch the last episode of the show before i leave.
the couple who finally got together in the end. super cute in the show.
okok one last pic. one funny thing to add. the last thing i did yest before going to bed was finding some pics and info on the above guy and tt night i dreamt abt it. it was so realistic. hahaha!!!
warning: this is a really long post, so only read it if u r really very bored.
steamboat on sat was fantastic. very kind of wanli to open her hse to us. we were saying it was a CNY-housewarming-farewell gathering, since it was still new yr, and her house is new and 3 of us flying off to aust. it was a very gd meeting with the gals. some haven seen in ages, some see until dun want to see (hahaha), some still studying, one did not come. it was gd laughing at talking abt old times. okok din talk too much abt old times. took a lot of pics with different cameras. had a lot of fun with them. dunnoe when will be the next time all of us can meet up again...
went back home and there was another gathering, my dad's sec sch gathering. actually it was meant for my aunt coz she is flying back to seattle soon. hopefully in another 20 yrs we will still be meeting up like my dad's batch.
sermon yest was really gd. frankly speaking it was one of the few times tt i actually paid full attention coz it helped me understand a lot of things. now i like psalm 23 very much.
feeling a twinge of sadness. received a call from my dad that i got a ticket back to melb already, but it is a morning flight. first time flying in the morning, and will be alone too. sigh..and i was juz thinking this yr's CNY might very much be the last time i will be spending with my family if i am going to stay in melb to get a job. it might be the last time i will be seeing those little kids during CNY. will miss them so much. ok will not think so much now. one step at a time.
ok end of long post and some pics to make up for it. btw i want the pics gals!!!

juz smthing interesting to add. took my oath and extended passport on sat. the lady who was the witness for my oath-taking has a son who was from my pri and sec sch. wat a coincidence, the world is very small. LOL!! it was quite scary taking oath. my hands were shaking a little, haha...first time wat, no choice.
i love chinese new yr. get to play with the little chn. missing those little chn. our reunion dinner is weird this yr. nv really eat with all the family members of the paternal side. after tt went over to aunt's hse to hv steamboat with them, very weird, like so out of place. 1st day of new yr went tangkak to my other aunt's place. most enjoyable place coz get to play with the chn. so cuteeeeee, hee....well nothing much happen this yr, last yr's was better i feel, but nevertheless it wasnt tt bad. cut my hair. it looks gd on the day itself only. looks a bit weird now, so dun give bad comments when u see me. LOL!!
