Interesting news article, weird reason.

Was flipping through today’s The New Paper when I saw this article that reported Vincent Ng and has broken up with his girlfriend of 2 years, Ling Lee. And do you know what the reason was?

If I didn’t read wrongly (I was almost late for work already), the reason was that Ling Lee felt that Vincent was “husband material, not boyfriend material”.

o.O

I know it’s really none of my business, but I still want to ask.
What is wrong with your other half being husband material? Isn’t a relationship supposed to lead to marriage till death? Why did she want to be with him for 2 years before deciding not to be with him?

Sometimes, even though I’m a girl, I don’t understand some things girls do. Okay, I know how they think after they explain, but I don’t understand. Why would they want to throw it all away like that?

Random thoughts on a saturday morning.

It’s a saturday and I’m here sitting in the office, listening to music. Lol. Class 95 on the weekends just make us all want to sleep.

My gum’s still quite sore/pain. Why am I still growing teeth? My mouth’s already overcrowded with teeth. :S

So far, one of my friends have received a letter of acceptance from NUS. I wonder if I’ll get in.

Went to Causeway Point for the first time in 3 years. The last time I went there was with Eve for the poly health checkup. Nothing much has changed. Wanted to get a guitar pick coz I spoilt the old one – I’ve never heard of people spoiling their guitar picks though – but after dinner, all the shops started closing -_-” and it was only 9.30pm. Blame it on the bus journey πŸ™ Took me 2 hours to travel from Ubi to Woodlands. I’m very thankful that I have an understanding boyfriend.

Overspent by $200 this month. And all on food. If this continues, my education fund’s going to fly away. So… yea >.< Why must CPF be 20%?!?! (Don't worry I'm not feeling down or anything, just felt like ranting. :P)

Nearing the end of the week…

I think I’ve finally managed to not worry so much about money.

Happiness is not found in money, things and others. Yes, they can help you feel happy, but ultimately, whether you’re happy or not also depends on you yourself.

Like for example, I felt happy when I saw that my Facebook app has hit a 1000 users because I decide to be happy.

Staying up so late to work on my project. What the world needs is a good free JavaScript compiler.

Had dinner with Huzz‘s family (Mum, Dad, Sister, Brother-in-law, Niece, Aunt and Cousin) coz CNY’s over already! Had so much fun making popiah and cooking the food! Haha. πŸ˜€ Oh and his niece is super cute!

Okay that’s all for now. Back to solving JavaScript.

Why I don’t like the drama “Kinship” 手袳.

Kinship or 手袳 II. My mum watches it every night hence I would end up watching bits and pieces of it. But everytime I watch, I get so put off about the storyline and the things characters do that I just regret even peeking at it.

Why?

  1. The jealousy between the couple characters in the show – too much of it and too frequent
  2. One half of any of the couple in the drama would do stupid things that would ruin their relationship – I don’t get it
  3. Women would drink wine and get drunk, then sprout nonsense
  4. For don’t know how many episodes, the character Shuiling would go hysteric or paranoid and keep worrying about her retribution
  5. 2 faced character Wenya – is she really a nice person? I don’t think so.
  6. Yusheng’s character – how can anyone stand her?? Why doesn’t she trust her husband? Why does she always do stupid things?
  7. The character He Ping – May Phua can’t protray her well. And prior to what people think, Mainland Chinese DO NOT always use the phrase “咱们” at every other sentence. For the 4 months I’ve spent in Chengdu, I’ve heard the phrase used only around 10 times.
  8. The characters do childish things that aren’t realistic.

I guess I only like the theme song sung by A-Do and the character Chen Anping – because he’s got a good sense of humour.

*No offense. Just a rant.

Music, Orchard, iPod Touch and Shirts.

Finally completed my Music Theory Grade 5. From now on it’s going to be revision! Plus I’ve also decided to memorize all the music terms in German, Italian, etc so as to score the highest possible mark for my exam. $110 is not cheap okay (a way to motivate myself is to think this way :P).

Spent a great afternoon with Huzz at Orchard area (PS, Centrepoint, Le Meridian, Cineleisure). πŸ˜€

I haven’t really explored that area since, forever! In fact, we were in Centrepoint for quite a while before I realised it was Centrepoint -_-” I’d never really shopped at Centrepoint before because of the stores in there being high-end and all. I’d always thought Centrepoint was much bigger though =x haha. See how noob I am in the Orchard area?

Played with iPod Touch at home! πŸ˜€ Love the intuitive menu and all, but why is iTunes so difficult to use? I still haven’t figured out how to add my own downloaded videos. haha.

Wants to order the Ping.sg shirt. πŸ™‚ But not sure if I’ll be able to make it for the event (school night and all). And Explosm’s shirts are also very cute and erm, naughty. If I get to order, I’ll get the first design (“Squeeze”) for the fun of it. Lol. Will only get the Ping.sg one lah. Wants aren’t needs. πŸ™‚

Pet peeve of the week: When people ask to meet you and you put aside time for them, then they cancel out on you at the last minute without letting you know until you asked. >.< The week ahead: Monday: Project Meetings & Submission of ICA Tuesday: NAPFA Test Thursday: HS Band Concert

Random thoughts rants in my head.

Manners. Something very important to have when you’re living with 12 other people in the same place. Unfortunately, not everyone has that. And with that, I would like to point out that even though you’re to “make yourself at home” and that some friends might say, “Why are you so polite? Do you treat me as your friend?” it is still manners to ask before you take something that do not belong to you. Maybe it’s me, because I still ask my sister or mum or dad whenever I want to use something of theirs, before I switch television channels, before I move their things… So I guess that’s why I get a bit touchy when people take my stuff without asking. The worst thing is that when you need that thing that’s taken from you, you can’t find it, and then realised that it’s because someone took it. Argh. πŸ™

And habits are something that I think some should change. Even though the apartment IS our home for these few months, we share stuff together. Bad unhygenic habits should be changed and avoided. Also, it is I guess our own responsibility to clean up after ourselves and not wait for others to clean up after you.

What Henry said the other day’s quite true – we clean up after people coz we are the first person who cannot tolerate the mess that they make. But does this fall under the term “initiative” as well? Do we who clean up have more initiative than those who leave their rubbish around?

I dislike buying new shoes. Not only because I always have no idea what design I want the shoes to be (and would get super confused when choosing shoes), but also because of the pain that new shoes will always cause. Even my now-comfy-then-new Converse shoes tore my heel’s skin when I first wore it.

Kind of regretting something I said about 2.5 weeks ago. I always forget that people do change in character. :-/

Guess that’s all for now? Haha. I don’t usually turn so negative, but when you’re tired, everything negative just appears in front of you.

—————————————————————-

Recently am teaching some SCS colleagues English. Quite a difficult task especially when you are worried that you might say the wrong things and offend them. So I let Henry do the talking =X Coz he has this sense of humour that wouldn’t offend people.

Quite an interesting experience though I must say. Also will get to know more people over here in SDC. πŸ™‚ Yesterday while Henry, one other colleague and I were waiting for the rest, we 3 were talking about stuff like music, computers, school system, and I even learnt a bit of China’s history from that colleague.

On the way back home, we shared this “cab” with one Chinese whose accent sounded like he was either from Taiwan or other parts of China. And since he’s from another company (though not rival company), I got quite worried when he started asking about what SCS does. Lol. I sometimes imagine too much.

But what’s interesting is that he asked if we were from 湖南 Hu Nan or ζΉ–εŒ— Hu Bei (other states in China). For the past 64 days since I arrived in Chengdu, there were people who asked us if we’re Koreans, Taiwanese, Hong Kongers or from other parts of China like Guang Zhou. Only one was right in saying that we’re Singaporeans (coz he knows Mr Ling and Ms Chua). Quite interesting eh? πŸ™‚

Down.

I’ve never felt this upset in a really, really, really, really long while.

I hate hurting people. It just gets to me. And the stuff they say… even though it got to me, I know it’s also like my fault?

I was able to laugh it off just now, until I heard what they said. It really, really got to me.

Today’s not a good Vesak Day. 3 others over here are also not in a good mood.

πŸ™

Though I cheered up slightly watching and listening to the below song. hahahaha.

The lyrics in this MV is different from the one in his album though.

Responsibilities

Watched Death Note 2: The Last Name with Vernon after school on Wednesday. Haven’t seen/met him since before Camp Tetra. He looked like he lost weight. lol. Chatted with him for about 2 hours before the movie.

He asked me if I often go clubbing. I replied, “Do I look like the type who go clubbing?” And he said, “You once said that you have done a lot of things that you don’t look like you’ll do.”

Omg. I forgot I used to say that sentence every other day. Which is quite true anyway. Looking at me now, you won’t think that I once used to fight in school during recess (pri sch) for a few months, and almost got sent to the principal’s office because of another situation. Luckily I got sent to the DM’s office instead (else I might have been expelled).

I guess that was sort of a wake up call for me? Well, what Vernon said reminded me of all of that. Plus the fun memories in sec 4 where him, Aloysius, Jun De and I sat at the corner where according to Aloysius, “penguins pass by” (because it’s ‘cold’ as we always say lame stuff, get it?).

Ah, but I’m a different person now I guess. From the one in primary 4, from the one in sec 4. In fact, after that outing with him, I didn’t realise the changes in my personality.

Anyway, he told me what happened to one classmate after she got drunk at a club, which is the main reason why I am definitely not interested in clubbing at this point of time. I may be interested in future, but not now definitely.

Death Note 2 was excellent by the way. Though, I really got tired watching people die of heart attack. Just finished watching Death Note (abao burnt it for me. Thanks! :D). One scene is repeated in DN2. Quite cool anyway. I somehow love Light’s evil personality. haha. And L too. He’s one mysterious character I would definitely want to know more about.

There was this Chinese girl (nationality) who was sitting next to Vernon in the cinema, who couldn’t stop talking loudly during the whole movie. Argh! No manners! Even though her mum told her to keep quiet, she was still talking LOUDLY the whole time. It was seriously annoying. Then, when her phone rang, she kept asking loudly whose phone it was! It rang for a whole minute before she realised it was hers and picked it up! I was really boiling mad at that time. Exchanged a dark look with Vernon, who I guess was more annoyed than me.

Anyway, about the Cambodia trip, still deciding. Some factors are not looking good for me. Should I be selfish? I don’t know. Am I considered selfish?

Might as well rant it all out. Recently, I realised that there are a whole lot of people around my age who behave irresponsibly that it annoys the hell out of me. I shudder to imagine adults who do not take responsibilities in future if everyone of them grows up to be like that. I hope it is just a phase.

I also realised that one classmate has begun to be too dependent when it comes to assignments on me. (abao,This is one of the reasons why I don’t publicize my blog url to our class; so that I can rant :P) I don’t know if I should feel honoured or annoyed. Honoured because that person thinks I’m good enough to be dependent on. Annoyed because I really cannot take such behaviour. The questions asked by other classmates are eagerly answered by me as these are questions which are asked after some thought of what the lecturer had taught/mentioned during lectures/tutorials/labs. The questions asked from that classmate are stuff which the lecturer had just mentioned like 3 minutes ago and we were specially told to pause our work and look up at the screen to listen to what the lecturer has to say. This happened not once, not twice but almost 8 times this week.

Then, when assignments are about to due, a thumbdrive would be thrust at my face with a command (no “please”) to paste my assignment inside or email my work to that person. If it is for reference like what other classmates have asked for (politely), I wouldn’t mind. But it seems like i’ve been taken for granted.

Recently, when i was talking to another classmate, instead of waiting for a pause in our conversation or for us to finish talking, that classmate spoke loudly over our conversation to me. Twice within 5 minutes. *sarcastically* WOW! I can’t believe the lack of manners. I wished I was like Guangyi, who once when our conversation was interrupted, told the person, “Can’t you see I’m having a conversation here?”

I don’t usually rant so much, but getting all of this our here is making me feel better.

P/S: My blog is now worth $12,419.88! $2258.16 more than the last time I checked (which was worth $10,161.72). If only what it’s worth is how much I earn per year. Maybe I won’t have difficulty making decisions when it comes to travelling.

Oh, and it is hard earning money freelancing as a web page creator, when people are not so generous when it comes to $$. My time is definitely worth more than that. I shouldn’t have agreed. Luckily, didn’t sign contract.

What crap is this?

Freaking pissed off. What did I do to deserve this?

People shouting/scolding me everywhere. At home, in school, outside.

And when I retort back, I get the silent treatment.

I don’t deserve this ok?

You said, “A have the good fortune to have nice kids.”

But you forgot that A complains to you almost every week about her children.

Why is it always like this? Am I supposed to be PERFECT?

I save money by not buying anything but just want food that is a little bit more than what we usually buy ($5). And I get scolded, for being “difficult”. And I get shouted at and disrespected.

During the interview, I was asked if I wanted to further my education. I automatically answered “No.”

At first, I thought it was because my subconscious mind wants so badly to get the “job”.

But now, I realised that it was because I wanted to earn money to help out financially.

And I get this.

(Pardon me for the rant.)

Hectic Week

Perhaps it’s my love for the school.

People have been commenting that maybe I should “move on” or that I’m “wasting my time” going back to HS to help. I’ve decided to write this here after listening to the 9874052735 comment about me going back to HS as an alumni.

I strongly believe that if you want to call yourself an alumni, you should fufill your role as one. Else, you should be known as a graduate of the school.

Alumni (plural. Singular: alumnus), even though is almost a synonym to the phrase for “graduate of a school”, I feel is a term which is for graduates who return to the school to contribute, to help.

There are people who don’t feel for the school, who don’t help, who don’t contribute after they’ve graduated and care less about the school. To me, these people don’t deserve the term ‘alumni’.

I’m the pioneer batch of HS; have seen it grow since the beginning at Lowland Rd. Even though there are many recent complaints about the students, I still feel that I should go back and help and visit. Not because it’s a must, but because I WANT TO. Because I LOVE THE SCHOOL.

It’s not that I haven’t moved on. I have. If I haven’t, I wouldn’t have been working hard in where I am now.

It’s not that I’m wasting my time. I’m just hanging out with friends.
