sick, feel very terrible. my world feels as if it is constantly spinning. what a way to start placement tml. still haven thought of activities for the children, haven planned anything for next wk, haven done my attachment discussion i m going to have with the parents. so many things to be done. felt so sick yest that i dreamt tt my mum was here to look after me. was very disappointed when i found out it was a dream.
oppies did i sound too fierce in my previous post?? well, so angry at that moment, nobody to vent to, so vent it here. i did feel much better after that :D
been diligently updating these few days. if only i am this consistent in my studies. anyway had a double session driving lesson this morning. went to carlton area. it was so so scary, esp on lygon main st. my instructor asked me to try driving at 55km/hr, deep inside i was errr...no thx, i am fine at 40k. but didnt have much of a choice, cars were travelling much faster and i had to keep up the speed, if not i would be a road hazard. haha!! so in the end, kept my speed at 50k. the car felt as if it was flying, too fast. afraid i would bang into cars. paranoid. it was also scary when travelling on lygon, turning into VicRoads. had to drive on tram tracks. ARGH!! the only lucky thing was it did not rain while i was driving. at least i know i make gd turns. LOL!! only did 90 degree parking today. easier than parallel parking.
on the sidenote, i realised everyone, or at least ppl arnd me, seems to know abt the mask thing all of us have, haha....didnt notice that before.
idiot 3 customer care service. i hate calling them up. passing me on to ppl in strong indian accent. nothing's wrong with ppl with different accent, juz the fact that the guy serving me is impatient. pissing me off. i was juz enquiring abt my bill abt an extra payment which was overdue. after figuring it out what it was and i wanted to hang up thinking the amt would be debited off my account, that guy was asking how am i going to pay for it. so there i was telling him 3 or 4 times that the amt would be debited off my account as stated on my bill. and there he was repeating 3 or 4 times that i would have to pay the extra amt 'manually'. he repeated so many times as if i didnt understand what he was saying. he pressed on and asked when and how would i pay it. when i said tml, he said it would take 3 or 4 days to reach them. so what, it doesnt make a difference to me. they are so irritating. they cant get money from my account and now i got to pay 'manually', manual car ah, manually. if they dare to take more than what they are supposed to be taking from my account, i make sure they are in deep trouble. at the end of the conversation he still had the cheek to ask if he could help me with anything. of coz not, if have i also wouldnt be asking u. stupid customer service. thx for spoiling my day.
dont know what's causing me to be so tired these few days. muz be the monday placements. takes me days to recover from the fatigue. slp at 10.30 yest, which was a big achievement for me as i dont normally slp this early. and for once in days, i had a peaceful slp, without the rumaging sound coming from the corner. slp more than 10 hours, feeling much better and energized, but haven started work. lots of things piling up. i dont have classed today and tml!! lalala!!
i received a parcel from wanli yest!! haha...how nice of her to send me some mags and newspapers from spore. ohh..how i miss reading those things. muz have cost you so much to send it over. thx thx thx :p
also had a great time talking to lee-ean n jess yest. was supposed to be discussing our work, but ended up talking. it's been a long time since we last sat down to talk like that.
i admit that i am not a gd friend to many. friends in spore will send me short sms / emails / letters / other means of keeping me updated with things which are happening. and me over here is always procastinating, having excuses of being busy with work. i feel very guilty when i receive their letters. arent i blessed to have friends in my life who understand me and take me for who i am. very glad. =)
ooo...a really long post to make up for the lack of postings and also to fulfil yanyanyan's pact for updating today. busy sat as can read below. last monday placement today. next wk is the start of the terror. argh...my supervisor is so strict on bookwork. double argh...cant slack at all. i dun want to think abt next few wks. looking forward to last wk in uni before heading off to the dreaded place =(
--- serene's 21st was the same day as our BS grp's social. so straight away after our cycling trip, went straight for serene's dinner. the food at TOTO's is nice. it is so near to church n yet we dun go there to eat. had a surprise dinner for her. hope she had the surprise. 21st birthdays always end with a little more surprise at the end. a mild sabo of cream and water. really mild compared to the others, like the recent shake's and omega's 21st. too bad no pics of her cream-ed face.
haha indeed =)
normal nice pic taken with the birthday girl.
the back ppl dun look too happy, in front ppl still happily posing ;p
--- our BS grp's 2nd social for the yr. we cycled all the way from church to st kilda on the road. it was so scary to cycle on the road with all the cars and big vehicles beside you. but it was a fun outing. 10 of us cycling behind one another. it was a long long journey. took us 2 hours to reach our destination. had our lunch there and spent some time at the beach and had to cycle back because most bikes did not have lights. all, but Jono's, butts are sore, coz he got the comfortable racing bike. sitting and standing is a chore after that. enough exercise for the rest of the yr, haha!! what a memorable social.
a few of my friends who visit this blog told me this page has got virus. sorry ppl, i dunnoe how to get rid of it. use mozilla firefox instead of internet explorer, shld be better. i dunnoe!!
navigating lect was interesting. it was on gender. what makes a boy a boy? what makes a girl a girl? why are girls labelled as "bossy" and boys are the "boss"?? "bossy" is a negative term while "boss" sounds so much better though they mean the same thing. isnt it unfair girls?? i guess this is how the society views gender. women are supposed to be demure and conforming while men on the other hand shld be assertive. sigh. this view point wouldnt change for a long long time. men shld be men. women shld be women. what abt those men who are not so assertive, are they labelled at "powerless" or "weak"?? poor men. these are some things said in lect today, no right or wrong. well, something to ponder abt. comments are welcome :p
had lunch with lee-ean (realised ur name is the first??), jess t., jess l., and her bf at red silks to celebrate jess t.'s belated bdae. man, the food there is not gd. i had thai fried rice. it was so salty and sour. terrible. the drink was gd though. coconut sago dunnoe wat with pearls. haha.
went for career fair yest. too many UK representatives. got this really cute pencil, heh. guess that's the highlight of it other than got lots of paper with words. celebrated grace ping's bdae yest. the place was so smoky, almost died-ed in there. LOL!! lots of ppl's bdaes. more coming up.
had a surprisingly gd day at placement today. my supervising teacher was much nicer, she was smiling more, but i am still scared of her. one more monday before the 3 wks block. sigh..while waiting for the bus at the bus stop, john's car passed by, he saw us and waved to us. haha...he is the best lecturer lah. miss him being our lecturer. lots of things to write up today.
my chinese is really bad now i feel. yest was at safeway and there were 2 women from china who needed help to buy things, so they approached me. they asked me to translate the names of the things for them and i had so much trouble with it. it's practically testing my oral, dont know how i managed to do well for my chinese in o'levels. the women got all their things in the end. i also have trouble explaining things to my mum over the phone in chinese, how bad is that. i am having difficulty speaking the proper terms i think, coz i dun think i have much problem speaking to friends, except my pronounciation, always teased by tt serene. well, it is a pity, learnt the language for so many yrs and now all throw back to the teachers. i still can read very well. one consolation, hahaha.
driving today was bad...well, the driving part wasnt too bad, but the parking was terrible. it is so difficult. maybe next time i will just drive and get someone to park for me. try again next time. went to watch karma this evening with shake. the production on the whole was gd i guess. but the ending was a little abrupt i would say. and the thankyou speeches at the end was way too long. i turned to talk to shake and found that the ppl beside her were all gone, haha.. hungry...
what a lonely day. dont like the feeling of being solitary. went for national day party organised by the singapore student society yest, and reached home rather late. still had to do some work before slping, was so tired when i woke up this morning. after knowing jess n lee-ean were not going for maths lect in the morning, i went back to slp again, hah. i skipped my first lect this yr!! very gd compared to previous yrs, used to skip maths lect like nobody's business. i dont like thursdays. stupid breaks. hv to go for a 1 hr tute ltr on. oh anyway yest's national day party was erm...alright. would be better if more ppl went. felt so lost amongst the singaporeans. only exciting thing which happened was huimin trying to get her bag up which dropped from the railing where she was sitting. spent quite some time on the rescue. spent last rest of the night standing or sitting arnd seeing things happening and lastly on the dance floor for a while before going back. see different sides of ppl, heh. so stinky as well, i mean the smoke. hate the after part, clothes n hair really stink. dont like clubs. hmm.. i still rem my patriotic red and white post last yr on national day, hahaha!! 1 yr flew by again. i feel time is passing very quickly, esp this sem. and been busy as well, but not much is related with sch work. no gd.
huimin must nag u to send us pics. helping huixian to nag at u too. so send it to us quickly.
watched the lakehouse on tue. i like the movie. nice nice. requires a little bit of thinking. well, for me lah..i want to watch the korean version of it, thanks lee-ean =p
long day, with long hours of break. after next wk, on thurs, we will hv 5 hours break. start lect at 9, break for 5 hours and tute at 3.15!!!! what a waste of time!!! what a timetable!!! anyway met huimin during lunch time to go for the sss bbq. had free lunch. huimin made sweet potato soup and gave me a tiny portion. ok it is not that tiny, i was full after that. she added ginger in the soup!! yucks! hah..it was very nice lah. thanks pig intestine. met her twice this wk, twice she forgot to pass me my stuff, LOL!! union hse is a place where you will meet lots of ppl. just stand there and you will bound to see someone you know. navigating tute was useful. taught us how to go about doing portfolios. really difficult =( havent even written my resume, when will i ever get to do it??? focus and stop wasting time!! cant wait for graduation, but at the same time i am scared to start working life...what a dilemma. i guess there is no dilemma, i will start work next yr no matter what or where. not going to use my parents' money to study. yay, fri tml again. love fridays. tgif.
-- happen to rummage thru my drawers and came across things which i forgot i brought it over to melb. some really silly notes which i written many many yrs ago. a lot of neoprints. those days neoprints were so 'in'. almost everyday after sch or after orchestra practices on saturdays, would go parkway to have lunch and tk neoprints. my dad works at parkway, so was afraid would bump into him. and sometimes i had to tell little lies to my mum when i return home later than usual, hee...oh how innocent and skinny i looked last time. hahahaha!!!! everybody looked different from last time. ahhh...i miss chung cheng days and chinese orchestra. all the practices which made my fingers hardened because of the sharp strings. lots of complains last time, always thinking of excuses not to go for practice, but now i appreciate it. dont hv many pri sch photos, if not will miss ngee ann days too...
had driving today again. he came late and i panicked, thinking my lesson was not today..anyway it was a gd drive. driving more than 40km/hr seemed to be too fast for me, haha. today's navigating lect was interesting. i actually listened to the whole lect and it was fun. yest had a long day at placement. supervising teacher doesnt look friendly, the assistant teacher too. i am sad lah, hope they will be nicer the next time i see them. met huimin for dinner yest. it's gd catching up with her. this is like the 3rd or 4th time meeting up this yr i think. somehow this post is rather random too.
