- woke up late
- went for taiko practice late
- taiko professor told me i am good student and he wants me to continue next yr heheh.
- had instant noodles lunch at AAA, cooked by yinhow haha
- did storage, had some adventures, called firemen to save us. (not as interesting as it sounds, believe me.)
- HAD BAH KUT TEH FOR DINNER AGAIN. WHEEHEE. me and siyou cooked prima fried hokkien noodles with er, pasta. haha not bad la. sat around with luke andrew sarah ivy yinhow for a loong time and, strangely, talked a lot about animals. was fun.
- rudi came a-knocking and we went to watch forgetting sarah marshall, was nicely entertaining. got... fat nekkid man la. that one alr entertaining enough. OK JK JK.
- came back to AAA, hung out with dinner ppl for a while more, then went to sleep.

- woke up late
- went for long lazy brunch on main street with siyou and shirin
- did some errands (which are fun, COS THEY INVOLVE GREECE), went back to school.
- andrew called, went for 'tea' even though i now resemble a talking blob of fat. (keep eating lehhhh. nothing to do i eat, stressed i eat. HOW. HOW TO GO GREECE LIDDAT.)
- now am in room, about to take nap. then... dinner and perhaps some alcoholic indulgence in j-hall.

must repeat: ah the life of a sloth.

ps. my econ grade sucks though. sian. I TRIED LOR, I TRIED.

i only have 173 posts.

how can this be.

last two days were spent very fruitfully in big apple (wah. got pun leh.) with assorted group of ppl. unfortunately, no pictures cos i couldn't be bothered. i have to start taking pictures omg ok this very v boring sorry.

so. sun left sch with shirin rudi siyou thomas and jenny. had lunch at random deli in times square, didn't manage to buy chicago tickets, then me and siyou got sick of it all and went to museum of modern art. was damn interesting omg. there was amazing exhibition by some danish-scandinavian dude (haha my philistine-ness is overwhelming) about perception and awareness and got one portion where everything was illuminated by yellow light and it all looked monochrome. damn interesting la, i wish my brain worked like that :(

zen... met rachel! for ramen dinner and Italian dessert. all was good. played very exciting game of thinking of V words for too long with rachel thomas patrick, much to the ire of our other companions.

spent the night at sampoorna's v nice ny apartment, then mon woke up for dim sum lunch (!) (GOT FRIED RICE WITH EGG WHITE. WAS GOOD AND OILY AND TASTY AND OILY :D:D:D), went shopping for a bit, went to K-town to get some sotong kimchi, then went to serendipity for dinner and dessert, then back to times square for Chicago! which was damn nice! the women in black garters ah...................

after that, came back to sch, crashed at 5 am, and am now packing. ah, the downs after the ups are very very down. ok i dunno what i am saying.

it is raining and cold and the com lab is empty except for me and pyungah and i do not want to do essay anymore. especially since 3/4 of the school has left.


yesterday was the official last day of school and in a bid to not use my brain, i wasted the whole day very pleasantly. it was a good day amidst a hellish week and i would like to record it for posterity, or until the internet implodes.

so. woke up late, went for farewell lunch with siyou isaac and erwin before the two guys left for russia and potential death. (ok sorry. choi.). zen... went to borrow books from library, which was fun. i dunno why i like walking around stacks of books, it is just very lonely and pleasant and nice. i also like the smell. musty..... books....... (ok i am trying to sound like salad fingers but that one a bit difficult la hor.) ANYWAY. went to siyou's balcony to have afternoon wine with her and jega whom i have seen too little off this semester. had nice long conversation with gleeful bitching. being bitch damn fun leh, will go to hell BUT SO WORTH IT. after that, went to collect stuff from gym with ruby, then went for dinner with rheesoo nicolas shirin and james. a lot of inappropriate penis talk ensued, as is always the case when james is around. then.. went to linda's room and hung out for a while until rudi came. tried on her clothes in various permutations. was very ugly, shirin pointed at me and laughed many times. ah well. such is life.

sue called, went to chinese house for bubble tea, little children (THE MOVIE HOR, NOT REAL CHILDREN) and then dumpling soup, courtesy of andrew. love the dumplings, love the soup. (inside got ikan bilis............) went to japanese hall for semi-party after, was late, got carded by police even though didn't drink a drop. such is life again. hung out with eric until wee hours of morning before he had to leave, then sat by foss hill in the dreamy dawn light with linda and rudi, laughing like an idiot partly due to her smoke and partly due to tiredness.

and today i awoke to a frenzy of packing and shitty weather. so life sucketh again.
k must write essay. bye.

ps. oh last night my school got huge drama. police tried to break up big end of semester party by shooting rubber pellets, tear gassing ppl and.... TASER GUNS. HARHARHARHA TASER GUNS DAMN FUNNY OMG. POLICE SIAO IZZIT. zzzzzzt ppl very fun ah. crazy. we appeared on real news. so excite.

something i found while researching for fairy tales class

from the book 'Ancient Tales in Modern Japan'

The Clam Wife

Once upon a time there was a married man. A lovely bride came to his place from somewhere. He set out for work every morning and returned in the evening. After his bride came, the taste of his food greatly improved - the bean soup he had made before had never once tasted good, but now it was fine. He was mystified by how she was able to make such good soup.

One day he pretended to go to work, but he hid behind his house to see. His bride got out her earthenware bowl and put lumps of bean paste into it and started to crush them. When the paste was smooth, she spread her legs and urinated onto it.

The man was furious and drove her right away. His bride tried to apologize, but he would not forgive her. Then she turned into a big clam and started to move slowly away. The bean soup was good because he had clam juice in it.


i have... no words la. 'a lovely bride came from somewhere' 'she turned into a big clam and started to move slowly away' lehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

i love the japanese.

ok this just took up 10 minutes of my time. win.

school and shit

jerrine, i now blog only for you. i miss you a lot, btw.

work is taking over my life. ok actually not really la. just my night life. i have been working on fucking econ stats paper for the past 3 days until 4am and i have gotten nofuckingwhere. and in the daytime i... waste life.

here is my life, in EXPLICIT DETAIL until i get too tired, for this past week.

sun night - taiko performance, which is the funnest shit EVER. except they made us wear headbands which, with my fringe and glasses, made me look like a sad lil fucker. but whatever. taiko is da shiznit. can shout like siaonang during performance and ppl will say you are cool nyeehehehe. and the high proportion of hot men in class! 0.o i want to run away from school and join dojo alr la. tell mother, see what happen. mountains will shake and oceans will roar, and all that jazz. omg i am incoherent.

let us skip monday, which was miserably spent studying for chinese test.

tues - night festival! after chinese hist test, luke brought me siyou and shirin to buy kaya ingredients and we spent the whole afternoon very happily and economically making kaya and tehping syrup (so don't need to make so many times). (along the way also made meepok and sausage omelette heheh). and zen, international pasar malam start and all the angmohlang say our kaya damn good and a lot of ppl take pikchas of our handmade singapore flag. and there was a lot of illegal behind-the-booth bartering between singapore society and japan, korean, malay, filipino and indian groups. very typical azn behaviour, ehz.

after that had drinking session with the usual ppl again, didn't get really drunk, didn't have a lot of fun, cleaned up after everyone, felt old and sober and responsible, went to sleep at 6am.

wed - spring fling! got mildly tipsy on hill with the entire school population, music wasn't really good but the sun was. sat around and chatted and relaxed and drank boxed wine and ate a lot of chips and sorbet. went for ksa (korean student association HAHAHA THIS IS GOING TOO FAR) dinner cos was invited, showered, then worked on fuck-cons until dawn.

thurs - woke up late, rushed cfa staff lunch for free food, went to work. after that went to collect extra kaya from luke and chatted for a good long while. laughed a LOT, cos of his Incident During Spring Fling. was nice. helped paul pack his room cos he leaving, was called 'mother' again (:( why ah. if not auntie, is mother leh. sian). went gym, dinner with shirin linda elena, went for two acappella concerts and then GUESS WHAT. BROUGHT ON THE FUCKONS. erwin isaac paul james ruby linda were suffering around me too though, so wasn't that bad. had a little bit of fun, at least.

you know the feeling of utter boredom and desperation that pervades you at an ungodly hour and you want to laugh until you cry or cry until you laugh or hit something or die? THAT WAS LAST NIGHT, for everyone that was there. the air was saturated with 2am facegrease and despair.

today was exhausting also. paul banged on my door at noon to wake me up, went horseriding (i cantered today! ok no one cares but THIS MEANS I AM NO LONGER A NOOB :D:D:D), got to talk to emma whom i haven't seen in so long and who is one of the few angmohs i actually like and can talk to, went swimming with ruby, cooked dinner in her house, ate with her and carlo, went to watch ANOTHER acappella concert, then came back to room to do work and am now doing this.

oh and mother just called. was nice talking to her, cos nothing changes at home when you are gone and they carry on the same routines you were a part of when you were there. it is sad in a way to know that your absence doesn't affect anything, but it's also infinitely comforting to know that there is a niche to which you can return, in which you can slip in like you never left.

and finally, excerpts from my life taken from an email to nat nao and sk. juz to give you a taste la hor, of my life.
'today i was walking down fire escape with my friends (it was raining) i fucking slipped on a pencil (why the fuck would a pencil be on a fire escape) and i fell on my ass down a fucking flight of stairs. HARHARHAR SO LOSER OK OMG THANK GOD FOR NIGHT.'

'heh two days ago i was in the toilet and then i heard a couple showering together and the funny thing was they weren't having sex and shit but were speaking very civilly to each other, i think about COURSES NEXT SEM HAHAHA. so i went and showered and made a lot of noise then they kept VERY SILENT. hahaha damn stupid right think when keep quiet ppl DON'T KNOW ALR IZZIT. and they stayed silent and the shower ran for the next fifteen minutes and they stayed until after i left. haha loser. want to shower don't shy hor.'

ok brain want to die alr. now must think about fairy tales. HARHARHAR. bye.
