A very shy young man goes into a bar and sees a beautiful woman
sitting alone. After an hour he gathers enough courage to go and ask her, "Er...
excuse me, but would you mind if I sat here beside you?"
She responds in a loud voice :
Everyone in the bar turns to stare at them. The young man is surprised,
shocked and embarrassed and goes back to his table.
After a few minutes the woman walks over to him smiles, apologizes,
and says, "You see, I'm a graduate student in psychology and I'm studying how
people respond to embarrassing situations."
The young man responds loudly with,

Full marks!

Vivocity is humongous! It has every shop, every food court (Banquet, Food Republic, Kopitiam), every supermarket BUT IT HAS NO 77th STREET. There's even a gigantic swimming pool on top! It feels overwhelming. Oh and there's no McDonalds. Probably too cheap for that kind of place. For example, this first shop we went into, one shirt was %$#%$440 dollars! FOUR HUNDRED FORTY SINGAPOREAN DOLLARS! It's worth the money though, I think. Kevin looks great in the funky lime green shirt! (Sorry no photos, no phone you see) I wonder how much time we spent walking and walking. We must have walked one big round around Singapore!

W eh? I Q I

W is for ... wall E I One Letter / Q -or- \"The Internet is for Porn\" I


We underestimated A-level Physics. It was weird, undoable and just plain wrong. Ok ok, maybe I'm just exaggerrating. Perhaps it isn't that difficult, just that it confuses people and when people are confused.. They rate it harder. Still, it's a fun challenge. I'm looking forward to paper 3 (and not looking forward to chem, thank you very much)


A whole day of mugging at Toa Payoh Library with Mok and co. My brain's fried. The 4 hours of sleep didn't help. Well I gotta lengthen it slowly, quality sleep's more important. As anonymous (that's me) said "Quality sleep is half the battle won."


This heralds a great start. Maths was easy. (I'll forget about GP, and Bio) Now, I don't know how I fared, but I enjoyed the paper. It was challenging, yet interesting. The questions flow and encourage. Yay! We'll see how the exams go.

GP sucked. I didn't write clearly. Well, I could never write very clearly. Especially when it's a topic I'll get confused with. A picture is always worth than mere words. Discuss. Freedom. Do you agree with the author's views? I dropped it. I wrote a funny story instead. Something like that. Geez!


We don't have to pursue happiness. It's here.

A Letter from the Mind to the Body

Dear me,

I owe you one. I give gratitude to all those around me, those that helped me, stood with me, guided me and left me. Yet I never thanked you. I have took you for granted. You were with me always, from my conception till now. You may have grumbled and whined and complained, but you never abandoned me. You would always support me. So I thank you now, and for eternity.

Thank you for all the wonderful memories. Thank you for recovering so quickly from the millions of injuries and for putting up with them in the first place. Thank you for tolerating all those late nights, those nightmares. Thank you for enduring the pain even though you could have just dropped and die. Thank you for moving with such grace and dignity. Thank you for your flexibility, that allows me enjoyment in sports. Thank you for you.

Mere words cannot describe all. This feeling I hope you receive in full. I hope to never take you for granted. You would do the same. We will live in harmony, for eternity.

your other me.

Jolting new

This is my new case. My computer's power supply fried itself. It must have been the long nights. I could just swap the power supply unit, but I decided I had enough. The old computer case was poorly built, grey ugly and just plain crap. I cut my fingers while working in it. So I decided to buy a new one. I was aiming for another case actually, dubbed the Scorpio. The store did not stock it anymore, it was obsolete. I was pointed to another deal, the Cobra. I was surprised. It was just too cheap! Despite the geekiness of the case, I grabbed it. It's done!



I wish that I had dug this treasure out before GP. 50 gems on writing. Priceless.


Rain, rain, come again

Hi there. It's been raining pretty often nowadays. Which is kind of great. There was this night when the wind sounded like the "Twister" movie. For some unknown reason, I was excited, probably too excited. I haven't felt like that for a long time. I knew immediately that I had to go out and bask in the rain. What a great feeling! It's like having a, a... shower? Hmm noo.. The feeling is undescribable. You have to experience it for yourself. Normally, we should feel blue when the weather is well, blue. But I guess I was really happy. Geez. I guess it's only cloudy weather that clouds me. Man, I love the sun too. Which to choose? ...I'll take both.

The Sky

Geez, what's up man.
