had a 2 day trip to Wilson's Prom with 14 other ppl. it was the best part of hols. such a fulfilling and enjoyable trip. seen beaches, climbed 3.4km mountain, had fantastic view from the mountain, great company and lots of fun. the lodge was the best part. such a spacious and beautiful place. can watch DVDs, play mahjong, talk, eat, slp, play sparklers at the same time without interfering with each other's activities. view pics for other details....
Wilson's Prom pics - Day 1 It's a long long journey....to Wilson's Prom. ok not that long.
3 very busy photographers.
Classic jumping shots at the one of the beaches. Housemates shot.
BBQ-ing become cooking. Ppl on the right hard at work, those on left using eye-power to help =D
Fine dinning. Dinner was supposed to be bbq, but became fine dinning. Very beautifully arranged by Lyd. Everyone tried to be cultural and eating gracefully with fork and knife, but some (i.e. me) gave up and started using hands. how do u eat chicken wings with knife??? So much for fine dinning ;)
Day2 Squeaky Beach. Very squeaky indeed.
Picnic at Squeaky Beach.
The tough journey up the mountain.
Beautiful view from up there, definitely worth the climb. But seriously tiring.
Tired. Resting after 3.4km hike.
Dangerous grounds. . . . . come back more pics later on.
Thankyou Lyd for the very wonderful organisation of the trip. and not forgetting the drivers too. had to drive for so long while rest had a gd time slping. Thankyou thankyou thankyou=)
worked at a nice, familiar place yest and that got rid of some of my traumatised feelings of working with chn from last wk. tml new place, scared again. sigh. went for postgrad expo at Melb Town Hall this afternoon. the courses are so expensive, esp for Melb Uni. was looking at masters of commerce. tuition fees $23k. not sure studying again will be a gd choice. well have to talk to parents abt it again. studying means going back to having assignments and exams for another 2 yrs. do i really want it?? but do i want to work full-time with chn?? well, leaning more towards studying, at least will have wider range of job choices, right?? ok if i do study, will try to work 2 days, so i will still be making use of my degree. haiyah, this is so hard to decide!!!
spent the day at home. feeling sick and anti-social. watched Music and Lyrics rented by CYY from the $1 store. love the music in there. the music video was really cheesy, LOL!! Hugh Grant is so charming. Drew Barrymore is pretty in the show too i think. Hugh Grant's dances moves are classic. seriously.
thanks for the comments left on my tag. whatever happened yest, i forgotten already. i just felt really bad yest, that's it. everything's fine now. just feeling slightly anti-social right now...

today was a bad day. the most terrible day of 2007 i think. it totally demoralized me again. it is days like this, it makes me wonder if i really took up the right course. think the last time i was in the situation was during placement. thrown into a really bad centre at work today. i was totally in-charged. there was a student teacher in there, i wonder how she spent her 10 days there. i cant stand it after 1 day. at first thought it would be a gd place to work and it is kinder kids. for the first time i think working babies is much better, at least they wouldnt shout or run around. they will just cry. the kids in this centre are very very very challenging. i had to raise my voice, practically shouting at the chn 85% of the time. making my cough even worse. getting constant headache. i think the ratio is terrible too. i had so many chn to myself. cant handle it on my own. moreover i dont even know the chn, how was i supposed to get them to listen to me. chn bit other chn, chn running around, run around then end up getting hurt or upset, and come crying to me all at the same time. i got so sick of asking them the question "ok tell me what happened." i just told them to go away from the person. it is simple isnt it, if someone is annoying you, go away, why stay there to get annoyed. another thing which upset me. i had to write down on the accident form that someone bit someone. i didnt know what i was supposed to write as i didnt do it before in my entire 4 yrs in uni and few mths out on work. i said aloud what i was going to write before writing it down on the paper. the assistant teacher said ok. when i was leaving, another teacher said it was wrong. she even asked if i did certificate or diploma (early childhood courses). i told her i did a bachelor degree. she was shocked i was upset. she said 'didnt they teach you?' i told her again i didnt do it before, coz in NORMAL centres, i would have someone to help me out, esp when i knew nothing, but there was none here. well, i could have forgotten, but do you have to say such things, it is like i took my degree for nothing. just the though of this centre gives me nightmares. i think the place i went last wk was nothing compared to here. they just followed a different researcher's method which i wasnt used to. the chn were angels i tell you. the best is still the centre near my place. okok, there were 1 little boy and 2 girls who are gd. the boy esp was so sweet. there was a girl who would put everything she sees into her mouth. EVERYTHING i mean, from playdough to little bouncing balls. it is disgusting i tell you. but i cant stop her. another boy he kept saying no to everything i say. NORMAL centres would have 1 or 2 of this type of challenging chn, but this centre has so many of them, practically all of them!!!! ahh..headache!!! sigh, what a bad bad day today. i am supposed to go in on thur again, but i will never step foot into that centre again. this place is looking for permanent staff, no wonder they cant get any. luckily there was movie to cheer me up. watched Ratatouille. very nice show. suitable for all age groups. must catch it if you havent watched.
nice sky last sat.
celebrated Letian's bday on Sat too. went Kimchi Grandma to have dinner and Max Brenner after. personally i prefer Oriental Spoon though we went there way too many times.
Happy Bday Letian =)
At Max Brenner.
some seafood soup thingy. gd!!
King Prawns. only 4, cost abt $30 i think, but it's quite yummy.
Max Brenner food.
my drink. DRINK ME. some lychee and coconut shake or smthing. very cooling and refreshing.
worked at my fav place today. moved around a lot, doing tea and lunch breaks, not boring at all, time passed very quickly. tml working at a new place. not sure how to get there yet. anyway watched Bourne Ultimatum yest. it is a very gd show, the type of movie which i enjoy. "Greengrass's handheld style is giddying. it's visually fascinating and a highly effective way of involving the viewer in the action." this is taken from the synopsis. yes it was INDEED giddying. i had motion sickness the whole time. that's the thing which i cant stand the most. many times i wanted to walk out of it already, but i thought i might get better. as i am typing this, i am feeling giddy. sigh it's a gd movie though, catch it if you like motion sickness Matt Damon.
i passed my driving test!! hooray. no more stupid mistake this time round. i was so nervous, stepped too hard on the gas a lot of times. i think the tester is a nice guy. had a short drive, made left and right turns and went back to vic roads. no parking except going back there. unlike the last time, had to do a 90 degree park, which was not supposed to be on the test. oh well, all's gd. thanks God that i passed the test.
it is so not fun to be sick. change of season or virus passing around?? whole house is sick except no.3. our friendly neighbour, ah dot, gave us tender love care tea. so kind of her. she is not feeling well herself and she is still rems us. where to find such friendly and caring neighbour?? have work ltr on this wk again. well, it is a gd thing.. tml another try in the driving test again. stressed. hopefully wouldnt make stupid mistake like the last time. gd or bad news, will update again. crossing fingers and toes.
