Fucking ripoff

Angry. Irate. These 2 words are not even close to describing what I'm feeling now.

Went to school for tutorial.. Well we're supposed to show the tutor how much progress we made for a project we're supposed to do in a week. After so much hard work and heartache, my fellow teammate did not bring our project. He did not even tell us that beforehand!! Fucking bastard. The entire team was in shock when he told the tutor he COULDN'T bring the project because it was on his desktop. I could have brought my notebook for presentation, and instead he kept quiet and caused the entire team to lose marks for 'not showing progress' when we worked our asses off. Stupid china man. This is the first and the last time I'll EVER want to work with a China man. He'd better not be lying about not bringing our project.. He may have been slacking off for all I know. Lamer. I suspect a coverup. I bloody hate this China man. Burn in HELL!!

Did I ever mention that he's a sexist too? Because I'm the only girl in the team, he thinks I'm there for the free ride and I'm a bimbo who knows nothing about computing and stuff. True, I may suck at it but don't treat me like an imbecile. Throughout the entire semester he ignored my suggestions and effort. When I talked to him, he bloody looked elsewhere at other non-speaking teammates. When I wrote a proposal, he bloody ignored it and wrote another one regardless of what I had to say. What the fuck. I hate China man. No wonder birth control is strict in China. They produce too many shitheads.

And after a very HORRIBLE tutorial(we got scolded. I bloody wanted to stab the China dude.), I went to collect my skirt from the drycleaner. The fucking drycleaner charged me $47.60 for cleaning a bloody skirt! I demanded to see the price list and the guy gave me a lame excuse about charging more for cleaning the skirt manually. You mean to say that manual labour for cleaning ONE skirt is worth $30!? Fucking ripoff.

I hope the drycleaner closes down. And I hope the China guy dies a horrible death.

Mundane life and self control

Guess I've been blogging a lot, judging from the frequency of my posts but who cares. I just happen to have plenty of things in my head, and I made it a point to jot it down on Notepad before posting them all at once. HAHAHA... so one day when I'm really bored, I can sit down and read my posts, laughing at what the hell I was thinking before.

My assignment is killing me. I've debugging it the entire day and it's a miracle my notebook can stand my abuse. Good ol' IBM makes durable stuff. It's not even heated yet. ahahaha... Anyway this assignment betta get good grades, otherwise it's cheating me of my precious time.

Teck is being hilarious again. And Teck if you are reading, you will get your raspberry filled Krispy Kreme doughnut when you get here. Anyone who reads this will become your witness, and that's if I don't remove this post. Haha.. This guy was literally drooling all over his computer screen when he checked out the Krispy Kreme website. I'm not sure if the franchise is available in asia yet, but if it is, I don't think it will make it big since everyone in Asia is so bloody body conscious. The stick thin folks think they are overweight and embark on this "wellbeing" journey that guarantees that they can fit into kid size clothes after that. People get criticised for being fat, and are not valued for their talent. Try offering a doughnut to people around you, my friends in Singapore. You will either
a)get punched and shunned.
b)hear the following: "Do you know how fattening a doughnut is?! If I eat a doughnut, my six pack will be gone! God forbid that I lose them. How am I going to face the world?! I won't be stick thin!"
c)all of the above.


Crap. As if you go around baring your six packs to everyone on the street. That's of course if you dress like Britney Spears who leaves nothing to the imagination. It's great to have a fantastic bod and congratulations if you have one. But don't get so hung up on it. Have one doughnut, hell maybe two. Stop if you are reaching out for your forth one. ^___^ I love my doughnuts. Yum. And pass those yummy bbq chicken wings over here.

On a lighter note, the author of this blog is contemplating a noticeboard/chatboard thing. Still undecided about that. I mean, who is going to write on my noticeboard anyway? Not many people read my blog too, much less leave a comment or leave me a message... *sob* Hmm... Noticeboard? Pending approval.

House moving

Some people say that house moving is one of the most traumatic experiences in a person's life. It ranks somewhere after childbirth and death. Guess what? I think I'm moving soon. My friend, Junyu, is moving to a bigger place and I'm going to take over his 1 bedroom apartment! So happy..I will no longer have to pay double rent for a room that I don't stay in. Basket... waste my money only.

Ok, back to the traumatic part. Can you imagine the amount of stuff I have to pack!? Clothes, books, stacks of paper that can qualify for a skyscraper easily, the pots and pans, the bloody washing machine, fridge, and bubblewrap each piece of fragile stuff manually... you get what I mean. And the excruciating wait to cancel/move the phone and gas. And not to mention changing mailing addresses, starting from the bank, uni right down to eBay sending address. $%&*^*$#

If only there's some professional packing company that handles all this crap.

But maybe after moving, I can go play golf with Junyu and co. Gotta work on my swing. The last time I played was my first, and god, I looked awful trying to swing like a pro. *weeps*

What happened ..?

Something struck me recently and I don't know if I'm just being silly or what.

Whatever happened to just plain old-fashioned relationship between a couple?

My friend just got attached recently, say approximately a month ago. Of course, being new in a relationship he would tell me situations he got into and asked me for help, ie. what flowers to get, what she's trying to say, is she playing with words etc. However one day he dropped the bombshell. He did it with his girlfriend.

Maybe I shouldn't be making a fuss since this is the 21st century. Is there a need to tell me that he did it, and the fact that he discussed it with many other people what's the norm these days? *shocked* Then he asked me how my sex life was. The answer is: nonexistent. Yes, don't be so shocked, it is nonexistent.

Why must people assume that being in a relationship means that sex is involved? Is it the definitive sign that 2 person are in a relationship? It's not that I'm against sex. It's just that I don't want it to be something I will regret later.

Couple can talk. Couple can watch tv. And yes, couple can do boring homework together. Does it make their relationship any weaker than those who have had sex? I don't think so.

Crossroads?

Had a chat with 2 of my oldest friends today. One of them in America, the other in Singapore. Let me count...right. We've known each other for 7-8 years now, and they have been through the good and bad times with me. I even went through a rough patch with one of them for quite a while, but everything's ok now and we're better friends than before. We talk about stuff that people don't usually share with their friends or therapist.

Somehow I feel so envious of my friends. They seem to have it all, a life outside of school and things they enjoy doing. While I for one remain stagnant for ages; no life outside of school. To be frank, no life at all. =..( I have so many other things to worry about, and I somehow do not have the luxury of having a life, much less an interesting one. No point whining since it's not going to change anything.

People keep asking me where I will go after graduation, even though I won't be graduating till next year and that's if I don't screw anything up. Personally, I don't know. I don't want to stay here in Sydney because I would like to be with my family. But going back to Singapore/Malaysia is not any better since most of my friends have moved on with their lives, and it won't be the same as before. There's no way I will go Hong Kong either; it's too unfair to my parents. Sigh.

But one thing is for sure: I am determined to change myself. I'm so tired of me now.

Fairytale in the cynical world

Was trying to find out the actual aussie release date for Spidey 2 on the web when I stumbled across this flick called "The Prince and Me" and "The Princess Diaries 2". Such flicks are generally targetted at kids, well girls below the age of 14 and people of my age are supposed to turn up our noses and ignore these releases totally. Why do we do that? Is it because we've finally realised that fairytales and their typical "happily ever after" endings don't really exist? Or is it because the plot for these flicks are generally predictable and shallow? Let's assume it's the former so I have something to rant about.

Maybe the majority of us, ok GIRLS mainly, realise that we will not meet a real life prince, let alone marry one within the next 10 lifetimes. Or have some stranger come up to you and say "You're actually the heir or missing prince/princess to <fill in country>." It's already hard enough to meet a decent fella to have an intellectual conversation going, what are the chances of meeting a prince? Almost zilch. That is, unless you are some powerful socialite or linked to some politicians of course. Chances of that happening to YOU: ZERO. ZILCH. NADA. FUGGEDABOUTIT.

Whatever.

Anyway if such fairytales are virtually nonexistent, it explains why the whole world gets riveted to the tv when a royal wedding takes place. And this year, 2 took place. For those who don't know which 2 countries, it's Spain and Denmark. *I watch the news ok..* Ahh.. what luck. I can picture millions of little girls sitting in front of their tellys, wishing that they would grow up to be real life princesses. Sigh... Good luck girls.

If I have my way, I'll bloody declare myself one instead of waiting for someone to make me a princess. HAHAHAHa... HRH Symin. I'll declare all sorts of things. Beware of what I can do. *evil grinz*

On another note, I can't wait to watch Spidey 2!!

Another incoherent post. What's new. And if you don't like it, sod it.

F.r.i.e.n.d.s

"All my life everyone keeps telling me you're a shoe, you're a shoe. But what if I don't want to be a shoe? What if I want to be a hat? I don't want you to buy me a hat, I'm saying I am a hat. It's a metaphor, daddy!" -- Rachel Green (episode 1)

Hmm..the above quote is correct, well that's what I remember anyway. quoted offhand. I want to be something different, someone whom no one expected me to be. Oh, and I did a Friends quiz. Lo and behold, what a surprise.





I'm Rachel Green from Friends!

Take the Friends Quiz here.



Rehab

Somehow this pet project has erupted to this full blown case of blog addiction. I keep thinking of things to add to my blog, instead of other things such as my assignments. I need to go cold turkey, AFTER I add a new entry. *grinz*

I want to read about other people's blog too. See what people actually put down in their blogs. How 'interesting' can it be. Bleah....

Actually I do have something to say. Is it right for a person to feel desired? As in knowing that some people(besides your bf/gf) are actually feeling something for you? Sounds weird but it's a kind of ego booster and it puts a certain spring in people's steps. I guess it's alrite to have this kinda attention. *shrugs* =/ The sad thing is I know of a person who is no longer feeling something, and this makes me kinda sad. It's like knowing that you have lost an appeal/X-factor/special connection with someone. CRAP. There goes my ego booster/spring in my step. What the hell...

Is it procrastination? Or is it wrong priority?

Hmm.. supposed to be doing my assignments. However, I've found myself devoting most of my time updating and sprucing up this blog thing, and hence the topic.

The tv is blaring behind me, some silly show called "Big Brother". A whole load of crap. Just listed down my preferred thesis topic, but I'm not sure if I'll get what I'm interested in. Hmm =/

Anyway I will try and do my work. *Concentrate* And if this blog gets more updates and new links, it just means that I'm doing stuff I'm not supposed to. We shall see.

sweet sweet doughnuts

I finally did get my hands on those fantastic, melt-in-your-mouth Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnuts. The queue to get those doughnuts can put the queue at your local supermarket to shame. It was down the block and the queue never stops. And for those who don't think one block is a long way, believe me, it is LONG. And ridiculous just to get yourself some world famous doughnuts.

A long lost friend, ok not lost but not really kept in contact with, suddenly sent a msg to me on msn. I have not seen her in 3 years and she informed me of a primary school gathering that's going to happen tomorrow. Too bad I'm on a totally different continent. Ahhh primary school. Those were the days that you can get away with anything. I haven't met up with most of them, and I just found out someone is now known as Timothy, previously known as TH. It's a little like "The artist formerly known as". Oh well.

p.s I got my curry stained kilt to the dry cleaner. They told me it's going to take them a day to clean it. Hope they don't lose it or add more stains to it. *cross my fingers*

My first entry

Sigh... As much as I don't want to admit, I've caught on the blog bandwagon. HOLY CRAP. Perhaps it's a way I can fully express myself without really giving a damn as to how others think. Things that are posted in the blog thing are unfiltered, and sometimes incoherent since everything that comes to mind gets typed down. People who are easily offended or don't see eye to eye with me on some issues, look away. =)

Anyway I've plenty of things on my hand.. I've got 3 assignments due next week and 1 major presentation that's gonna determine if I pass or fail that subject. So now you have an idea of how's life like in my pathetic worn out shoes. <-- just realised that sentence doesn't make much sense. *shrugs*

I had a dream. It was nice and it was of my friends in Singapore right now. How I miss every single one of them! You know who you are, if you decide to read my entry. I realise that they are the single bunch of people that are my 'final' group of close friends. It's hard to explain, but being in uni doesn't really mean that you are constantly surrounded by people whom you would call friends. I miss my friends, and the jokes and the verbal 'crossfire'. It's this casual talk and 'debates' that hold us together. I'm getting over-emotional/talking too much mushy yucky stuff now.

Gotta run. Will update whenever I can. This will BECOME my pet project. =)
