Home.

I'm home.

Everything looks the same. Everyone is fine. It's hot and humid.

I'm home.

I have a lot of things to write about but somehow I can't seem to put them down in words. I'm one of those people that 'sees' things in pictures. 3D. That's why it takes me some effort to put my thoughts on paper.

I'm semi glad that I'm home. Happy that I don't really have to lift a finger, yet depressed that my freedom's gone. I can't eat dinner at whatever time I like, or go out whenever I want (due to transport problems).

Overall it's ok to be home. If only it's cool and crisp outside, or the streets are air-conditioned.

All I want for Christmas are...

Tis the season to be jolly. For me to immensely enjoy this year's Christmas, I would like to have a Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) AND the new PS2.





I really really want a PSP. You can play games as is or play online via a wireless network, and watch dvd on this thing. For all the digital photos fanatics out there, you can store all the photos in this baby and show off to all your friends. Ain't life grand?

Psss... this gem is officially released in Japan this year on December 12.

PS2... I've lived in Sydney surviving on and off with the help of Jasmin's and Victor's PS2. Jasmin moved away so I'm left with Victor's screwy PS2 that somehow doesn't load at times. Bleah. Therefore I would very much appreciate the new PS2 this Christmas!





It's thin (2.8cm) and lightweight, perfect for bringing it OVERSEAS don't you think? It's reason enough for me to have one. =)

I love Christmas. Let's spend Christmas together this year!

Robert Langdon.

I guess this is old news for some but Tom Hanks has been chosen to play Robert Langdon in the movie, The DaVinci Code.

The horror. He can never ever pull off Robert Langdon. Every time I see Hanks, he reminds me of Forrest Gump on a shrimp farm. How can he be the charismatic and intelligent symbology professor at Harvard?

In the book, Langdon is supposed to be 45 years old, handsome but not in the classical sort of way. He still has a great physique from his swimming days because he swims 50 laps a day.

Tell me, does that sound like Hanks to you?

The one other guy that I think can play this role, is Liam Neeson. Charming fella that comes across as the strong, silent and intelligent type.

Oh, there is a cheap rip-off version of Da vinci code in theatres soon, which is the movie "National Treasure". Nicholas Cage. One word. Eww. I will still watch it, just to slam it further to illustrate the point that Da Vinci Code reigns supreme.

Anyway I shouldn't be talking about DaVinci Code since I have 2 more papers and none are on the DaVinci Code. If it's on the book or any Harry Potter trivia, I will pass with flying colors and the uni will have to award me with a certificate of special achievement.

Don't get me wrong. I am REALLY that well, not knowledgeable but the word is well-informed, on the world of Harry Potter. I scored in a computing quiz because there were HP trivia in it. My tutor decided to be sadistic, adding those questions so that no one could get full marks. HAHA how wrong was he when I was the one who knew what the title of the 6th book is, how many points was the golden snitch worth and what was the name of Harry's first broom.

Smart I tell you. If only I can remember my actual computing stuff the way I remember HP trivia. Unbeatable.

Did I mention I got the job? And the company decided to pay me!! The amount remains unknown to me, and I shall find out when I go back for an interview. I AM getting the job, and I start work anytime I wish. Sweet.

p.s. All you people out there who have finished exams, please channel all your unneeded luck to me so I pass the remaining 2. Mucho mucho gracias. =)

10 days.

It's been 10 days since I've added anything to my blog. I'm so tired.

In 10 days, I've

used 180 sheets of paper,
drank about 16 mugs of mocha,
had about 15 takeaways,
went through 8 textbooks (not every single page of course),
8 McDonald's sausage and egg McMuffins,
5 hours of sleep per day,
4 papers and
1 day when I was almost on the verge of breakdown.

I'm drained. I have about 7 days to go till my next paper, and exactly next Friday, I will be free!!!

I feel just like an inmate who knows she has exactly 1 week till freedom. Can't wait!

Then again, I will start to panic since my results will be out anytime in December. =( It's a torture.. and if I flop anything, I will have to endure 1 more semester of uni. NOOOoooooo !!!

Not sure if I would write more after my exam, since I would probably get away from books, computers and any sort of writing material for a while. =/

I need a vacation.

Drama.

El suggested I 'fessed up to my jc crush. Not to have a sense of closure on my part, but to provide entertainment for him. Haha...

El, there's no way he liked me. And I faithfully wrote down every bit of juicy details in a logbook a la Bridget Jones' style during my 2 years in jc. All the "juicy bits" are in there, plus a few other stuff. I wrote quite a bit, and it's very blog-like. Lengthy entries, heart palpitations, butterflies in stomach and all. Every single thing was chronicled.

Everyone in the class, the girls I mean, would know about the "drama" because they read the logbook. I am too tired to reproduce a summarised story/plot for your entertainment. Should I have the time, I will fill you in with what happened.

Speaking of which, I have no idea where the logbook is. Shit. Some things are not meant to be made known. There's some scandalous shit in it. I hope it's with someone, preferably the girls, or burnt.

Just where is the damn book?

Crush revisited.

Oh god. Talking to my jc crush now. I feel like I'm in jc all over again.

He was sooooooo right for me. At least I think he was. He still is. =X I guess some of you would know who this guy is, then again some may not know.

He was the guy who made me laughed a lot. The guy who strummed his guitar and sang to me in the lecture theatre. The guy who accompanied me home after school. The guy who walked me back to the doorstep of my boarding school. The guy who took a cab with me to jc when we missed the 74 bus in the morning. The guy who drew pictures in my lecture notes. The guy who supplied me with loads of fruitips. The guy whom I liked for 2 years.

He still doesn't know. I'm not sure if I have the guts to tell him at the end of our conversation. How I wish things could be different.

Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.

Oh god. Just caught the world's first preview of Star Wars III. It is good I tell you.

Darth Vader is finally turning baaad. And I really hope the movie turns out well. *fingers crossed* The graphics look good and 1 particular scene looks a tad too "LOTR", complete with lava and what looked like a floating eye on top on a mountain.



Oh well. Sith lord....... I'm hyperventilating. I'm that excited.

I'm blogging at 6.45am. It's shocking but I just have to announce that I'm suffering from insomnia. I can't sleep at night anymore. =(

If you can find the trailer online, download and watch it. You will forget the disaster that were Episode I and II, and lose yourself in the entire series all over again.

"Luke, I am your father." -- Darth Vader

Congratulations! You are Charlotte.

Which Sex and the City Character Are You?

Another good show that's ending. In Australia.

Random stuff.

Bush won the election. What can I say? As much as I support Kerry/Edwards, I had a gut feeling Bush would win. Things that can go wrong, will definitely go wrong. And worse things will definitely follow.

11 days to exams and I have no business poking my nose into US politics since I'm not the one running for presidency. Drafting the timetable to study is already a big headache, not to mention revising the actual content for 6 subjects. Thankfully I don't have to be tested on my thesis. That's 1 less subject to revise.

Trying to find a job for summer holz. Somehow I heard I wasn't going to get paid, which is making things a lot worse. I guess I had enough of getting money from my parents, and I can't spend on whatever I like because it's my parents who will be "paying" me. Basket. Why are companies in Singapore so cheapskate? Pay the students. They are NOT a cheap/free source of labour. You want free labour? Get your own family to do it. Even then, they may not want to do it either.

Read in a clause in my uni that explains why all students should be paid. In a way, the company acknowledges you as a staff, albeit a temporary one. You will then be covered for all accidents and what not. Furthermore, I should be getting 80-100% of the actual renumeration for a newcomer since I'm already in my 4th year of study. And that amount actually works out to be $1800-2400 per month. I feel like I've been ripped off. tmd.....

At the moment I have my eye on several stuff. 1 pair of shoes, 1 skirt and 1 top which sum up to $240. Shocking and obscene amount of money for a casual retail therapy session, which is why I'm putting a lot of thought into this. I can't really afford it now, since I'm not going to get effin' paid for my labour. *ponders* I guess I can afford 2 out of 3, provided I get financial support from people around me. *major hint*

Someone asked me a weird question out of the blue and caught me by surprise. Can I accept a guy who's younger than me as a boyfriend? And what's the limit? I guess I can accept a younger guy, afterall I've been surrounded by younger guys all my life. Limit? erm.. 2 years. How come no one ask me if I can accept older guys?! *puzzled*

Bush's making his acceptance speech now. Irritating ape. But I must agree Laura Bush looks more dignified as the First Lady than Theresa Heinz Kerry. However that should not be the sole reason why people should vote for Bush. I talked to a few friends in US, and despite the major efforts to get youngsters to vote, they did not vote. Basically it boils down to this:

1) the queues get waaaaaay too long.
2) their votes won't count (probably, since they are in republican states. Mostly.)
3) america loses, when either one wins. So there's no point voting.

Sighz.... so many problems.

So many what-ifs.

So many regrets.

My life is pretty much, in a mess now.


p.s. I forgot to add I like James Spader in my previous post.
