i dare not blink my eyes. a blink of eye, 1 wk is gone. another blink of eye, 1 mth, then a yr and the list goes on. i am blinking too quickly, spent almost 6 yrs of life in Melb. so what did i achieve in this 6 yrs?? used up a lot of parents' money in Melb. Trinity foundation course done, got a degree from the squeezing-people-dry uni, wasted a yr of doing nothing, friends made, friends lost, moved houses, new housemates. sigh. what will i be doing 10 yrs, no 10 yrs is too far to foresee. what about 5 yrs down the road? what an emo post. this is what happens when one is stuck at home the whole day doing nothing but staring at the rectangular screen. well partly also because i am worried abt my future. read the subject descriptions for the course i am thinking of taking next yr. it is so daunting. not sure if i can cope with assignments and exams all over again. strangely i am looking forward to going back to uni again. having said this, i havent applied for the course. haha!!
ok should say smthing abt the movie yest. Eastern Promises. watched without much expectations except reviews rated it 4 /5 and 81/100. hmm..very bloody, very very very violent show. makes you go home with a heavy heart. not suited for those with weak heart i suppose. no wonder it is rated R18+. the violence and brutality is not for me. the movie is too graphic. they could just show the before and after person is killed and not the process. too disgusting, even doctor-to-be cant take it. but i must say i like the storyline and the baby and the main actor, Viggo Mortensen. i find him charming, but shake thinks otherwise. hmm..this time i am not going to say "they liked it", will get flamed by them =p let me rate it 4/5 for storyline. movie itself, 1.5/5.
daylight saving, argh!! hate this part of the yr. lose 1 hr of slp. i feel so free this weekend!!! taking wk off. it sounds bad that i am so slack, but cant help it. maybe this is not the job i want to do for the rest of my life? but i really enjoy being with chn. maybe not childcare jobs i guess. too much things to do. that's why thinking of doing another course. ah-ha~ went smith st. this afternoon with shake n rachelle. there were sales everywhere. we had so many shopping bags between the 3 of us. shop-a-holics. i am sad coz did not manage to get the slippers i like. take 2 tml in city. spent too much in a day. nvm these things are for long time investments. haha. excuses excuses. oh man, such a bimbo-tic paragraph. very nice dinner + catch-up at richmond with susanty. hate naggings from parents.
i cant tell if i had a good or bad day. tired is the word maybe. i am enjoying these kids. they are 3 yo. there were 2 girls who kept coming to me to sit on my lap whether indoors or outdoors. at one point i wondered is this what it feels to have 2 little daughters. i have been tying a lot of hair for the girls, so i decided next time when i have children i must have a daughter, so can doll her up. girls are easier to toilet train too. additional info. haha. boys are good too. can take care of their sisters. one more day of work tml. i so dont want to work. went to watch The Kingdom yest. well, not watching actually. i had my eyes down half the movie. it was the same as Bourne. both had the moving camera effect thing which was so horrible. dont understand why the directors think the effect was good. i had terrible motion sickness and had to throw up after watching. now i can fully understand those ppl which car motion sickness. couldnt watch the movie, only could listen. even listening gave me such a headache. it was quite a bloody and gruesome show. they liked the movie. i wouldnt even give a 0.5/5 for the ratings. well, i would had appreciated it more if it was still. next time must read the critics and reviews more carefully before watching any movies. puts me off any movie for some time, unless it's Ratatouille. haha =p
another week gone by in a flash. so tired from working...again. had romantic dinner with Huimin at Nandos + Max Brenner on her bday on wed. always having Nandos whenever i meet her. weird. thur met up with the other chung cheng ppl. had dinner at this place called Shanghai Village. havent been to this place before in my 6 yrs here. frankly speaking, the food wasnt fantastic. the pics looked better than the taste. Shanghai Dumpling better. after dinner went QV to chit-chat abt old times in sec sch. talked abt the sec 2 adventure camp, sec 3 NACLI camp and canoe-ing camp, which i didnt go. so fun to talk back abt things with old friends. reminisce abt the old times. we wanted to leave at 10.30, but Letian brought his mac along. so took loads of weird funny pics at QV. although it was late, there were still quite a number of ppl passing by. it was so awkward posing in front of the mac and making faces while the ppl were passing. took so many pics. my friends are nuts. so stayed there till almost 12. so much for going home early to rest...
Meet my friends.... Spec-ly smiley auntie. Happy Birthday pig.
One of my weird looking friends.
Doesnt she look like one of those Jap girls?? Hahaha!!
Scrunched-up face uncle.
and me!! haha.
Rugby player vs little uncle.
I actually like this pic. So act cool.
Must have shots - "xi nu ai le" (huixian, ur fav shots too, heh)
finally had the time and slight energy to update a little. i am very hardworking this wk. worked 4 days at the same place. growing to like this place much more. worked with the 2s this time. it was so hard on the first day. chn not listening, i cant understand them, etc etc etc. person covering my break claimed that i went for 5 mins past my 15mins break. well, the clock was slow, how was i supposed to know? moreover when i was in the 4s room, they asked me to go for 20 mins break. now just 5 mins more, i got told off saying if anything happened, it would be my fault. sigh....whatever. that was how my first day in the 2s room went. bad. following days were much better. i wouldnt choose to work with chn under 4. very troublesome age. they are so vulnerable and need a lot of our attention in almost everything. worst thing is need to change nappies. yuck. hate that. hopefully i wouldnt get anymore of the young ones. and although this is a gd centre, i can feel the politics and the tension between different grps of staff there. nevertheless, i still enjoyed my time there with the chn.
on a sidenote, now i know why childcare workers are all so big sized. coz they are tired after working, so the only thing to cheer them up is food. and after eating, they will just sit there. how not to get fat?? yup speaking abt myself. bad =(
anyway i received an email from huixian. it was abt a family with 17 chn. it was like "wow!!" seriously. CYY reckoned i shld blog abt it. i would hv posted the pics up, but i cant save it. when i was much younger, i used to imagine how it feels like to have many many brothers and sisters. this is the perfect example. the oldest kid in this family is (or rather looks) abt 30 or somewhere close and the youngest is a newborn girl. their house is huge, like Wilson Prom's house X4 (at least) and double storey. all the boys share a huge room and the girls share another. the guys' room has a slide for them to slide downstairs. cool. they so many things in the house, like arcade machine, pool table, rock climbing, dont know how many washing machines, a room for all their clothes, drinks vending machine. it is crazy!! the family must be like so rich. it must be one of a kind type of family.
