I know I shouldn't be saying this but for this moment I can take it no more. And yes, I know it's kind of my fault to linger on Facebook for too long, and so I saw those things, things that sometimes got me frustrated, and yeah, confused too. You see, I just don't understand, what's with all those self-portraits. OK so that's nothing wrong with self-portrait. It's just that those girls(and boys even, blimey!) said something like 'I'm here in Penang' but put a picture of themselves acting cute instead. What does THAT has do do with arriving in Penang? Seriously...I just don't get it. When lots of people doing it, it just get kinda weird.
Perhaps I really should avoid looking at those self-portraits with someone trying to act cute by pouting or whatsoever in it lest I judge them again, and it's wrong to judge people...perhaps...
Emm I mean no offence, just wanted to let go of the emotion boiling inside, sometimes I really wonder about people nowadays and internet and their growing egoism.
Watched it with my family yesterday, at the cinema of course. The plot is interesting enough, I think I'll give it 5/5 star.
1) Jack Frost is adorable! (now I know why everybody, emm ok, girls mostly, likes Jack Frost so much)
2) Santa is a Russian, according to the film.(sometimes Russian accent sounds like Indian's accent to my not-so-sensitive-ears)
3) Easter Bunny is cute when he's small.(so fluffy!)
4) Sandman can't talk.
5) Tooth Fairy is part hummingbird part human, according to the film, again.
The movie is cute and amusing, one can't help but fall for it！
We all should do it, eat more vegetables and less meat.
1) It's one of the ways to safe the Earth, according to what I'm told, animal's fart release harmful gases (don't ask me what gas it is I have no interest in it so of course I don't remember) that will raise the temperature of Earth if released in large amount (ie by many animal). So with the demand for meat becoming less, it will help preserve the environment as less animal is being raise for food purpose.
2) Imagine an animal that was alive a minute ago and then killed, just because you enjoy eating them, do you seriously still want to eat meat? Do you still have the appetite?
It disgusted me to see people on some Taiwanese travelling tv program who only think of food when they see animal (who are still alive, mind you). Such glutton! Only line that escape from their mouth is : 'This can be eaten.' And I was like eww, how do you still have the heart to think of eating them when they are so cute and alive, or having no problem in eating them albeit seeing them still alive minutes before. Seriously, some people today...
I'm working hard on being a vegetarian, currently failed because I can't resist nuggets, sausages, and burger, that's why I called myself a half-vegetarian. But at least I don't stare at dogs and tortoise and think of how yummy they'll be if being cooked the right way.
He must put aside all resentment and say;
My mind shall not be disturbed.
No angry words shall escape my lips
I will remain kind and friendly
With loving thoughts and no secret spite.
(A Buddhist prayer )
Came across this thing in a building belong to SBS, where the banthes come down from SBS and go there sometimes. Most of the time, people say "it's okay" but you can still sense that that person is angry at you. When you're hurt, how hard it is to harbour no grudge towards someone! Chill, forget about it, it's okay. Like, really okay.=) gyr
I was having Curry Mee as breakfast today, and I could not help help picking out those small shrimps in the curry, very patiently.
Still, however patient I am, I was still irritated, there's just so many small shrimps. I mean, I don't get why us Chinese like small shrimps so much. Small shrimps in everything we cook, noddles, rice dumpling, fried rice, etc. Why?
To me, having small shrimps in your curry mee is like having them swimming in there, occasionally peeking out. Yup, PEEKING, because their eyes are so black it's hard not to notice them in your curry, sometimes I see many pairs of eyes instead of small shrimps, it's horrible. Yucks, must not let my imagination run wild.
Had our first and the last election yesterday.
The funny thing is, what we (most of the class al least) were most interested in are who's the handsomest and prettiest. Oh and, the best couple.
Since I have mentioned about it, I'll just announce the 'winners'.
There's two boys who were chosen as the handsomest, funny, but this is how it worked. The chosen ones are Ivan and Wooi Keong.
Ivan always struck me as cute actually, partly because of his height, but if you consider seriously about it, yeah, I guess he really is good-looking. I always think that he can be a stunner if he's taller, but judging by the votes he got, he already is one. He's a nice guy I think, we don't talk much because he doesn't talk much(to girls anyway) and I'm not that kind of girl who goes around talking to every boy in my class, so...
Wooi Keong is the one who has both the look and the brain, the one who still managed to get good results in exam despite being in a relationship, the one who was also given the title 'the handsomest' back when we were in F2.
There's also people who didn't get chosen as 'the handsomest' and accused others as blind for not voting him. He was just kidding (and being narcissistic) and I found it amusing.
And the prettiest went to Ye Wei and Hui Yee. Also expected.
Ye Wei was crowned 'the Beauty' since kindergarten, according to my friend. I'm not really close with her but from my interaction with her I know she's modest, she never really yelled.
Hui Yee and I are quite close and everybody thinks she's beautiful. Like Wooi Keong, she also has both the look and the brain. She's kind-hearted and always considerate.
Both of them attracted boys, who sometimes like to go to their place and say random something just to irk them,Of course, they have admirersssssss.
The best couples went to, well, the best couples, all from our class. It's better not to talk about them here because they might not like it. They are actually not real couples, but at least one in the two of them has feeling for the other, that's how the gossips start. Teasing them is 5Sc1's favorite pastime.
I wonder, why can't it be 'the most kind-hearted' that we are most interested in? In fact, it took us some time to think whether there's anyone suitable for the title. In the end, I voted for my best friend, because she really deserves it. Some didn't have any idea and simply wrote whoever's name that came up in their mind. It's kind of pathetic.
So I wonder again, does look matters that much? Not too much to me actually, but I still can't help falling for Ponsi's look and being over-enthusiastic about it. Not to mention those girls who yelp whenever they see actually-not-too-good-looking-but-to-them-they-are guys.
I'm not particularly satisfied with the choices given, truth to be said. There was 'the most talkative', 'the most hamsap'(=.=) and some slightly negative things, but no 'the most hard-working', 'the most helpful', 'most talented' or positive things like that. Even if they did put good things like that, we would probably have to rack our brain to come up with some suitable candidates. Why? Because we are less interested in that?
Well these are puzzles to be solved, and most probably cannot be solved. So let's not torture my poor little brain now...
When you sensed your friend drifting away, friendship fading
When your friend is sinking lower and lower, and you can't seem to pull him up
When your parents don't seem to understand you, everything you say, everything you do, misinterpreted
When you did something wrong and can't turn back the clock
When you desperately tried to impress someone and failed
When you realised that after this few years there won't be much time for you and your siblings to be together
Desperate because it brings along frustration, indignation, confusion, self-pity
and you HATE it
I don't usually write about my Blog's background picture, because there's nothing really special about them. My last one was a picture of the kind of place I would like to live in, and before that was a picture of my dog, and before that? No I can't remember.
So, I changed my blog's background to a picture of a famous castle in France, the Château de Chambord (Chambord Castle). I was considering about Neuschwanstein Castle at first, this castle is so breathtaking that I think it's the most beautiful castle in the world, but then I picked Chambord Castle, because of da Vinci and King François I.
They say part of Chambord Castle was designed by Leonardo da Vinci, which would be the chimneys that look like little towers. According to the book I read (borrowed from our school library), the castle consist of 440 rooms and 365 chimneys (or more)!
Also, one of the most famous architectural features of ChambordCastle, the beautiful double
helix staircase is said to be designed by Leonardo da Vinci too!
So this is what the book says:
During Leonardo da Vinci's last few years, King François I invited him to live in France. When Leonardo da Vinci accepted his invitation, the king was delighted, as he adores him very much and thinks highly of him.
The double helix staircase was a gift to thank King François I , but it was only built after Leonardo da Vinci's death, so it wasn't built completely according to Leonardo da Vinci's design. Supposedly, the two staircase should supported each other, just like the double helix form of our DNA, but back then no one knew how to build it, so the two staircase ended up how it looks like now. In fact, most of da Vinci's design for the King was left untouched because, again, they are too complicated and no one knew how to build them.
The staircase allows people to climb without being seen by
those who go down, so that King François I's mistress won't have to curtsey to the Queen.
King François I even thought to divert the Loire to
the castle, but the project proved too expensive and challenging and was
abandoned. Same thing goes to 'The Last Supper', it did not matter to The
King that this is a wall painting, he wanted to bring the whole wall to France.
Thankfully he also abandoned the idea at last.
As for the reason I chose a picture of castle, hmm
let's say that I've had a lifelong fascination with castles.=)
Well I just learnt of it actually.
Now here's the Golden Rule : Never ever read those post you have written, especially those written long time ago.
I just did that and I was horrified. Seriously, how childish I was back then, gushing over hot guys! I mean, I still do it sometimes, but it is different. And those words I used, I feel like fainting right now, good. Actually, I don't blame myself for my broken English because it is part of me, what I used to be. Besides, though growing up watching all kind of English shows like Magic English, Barney&Friends and Disney movies, my interest in English only appeared when I was in Form 1, being overpowered by my love for Mandarin before that, and only then did I work hard enough to polish my English. So I have no one to blame except myself for my broken English.
Still, I was tempted by the idea of deleting them since some of them stand no value actually, but something stop me from doing it. The reason was simple enough : because it is part of the history!
Yup, history, of all things. You can't delete something and pretend that it never happened, just like what Japan did, trying to cover up what they had done in the past by saying that those woman (we call it as 慰安妇 in Mandarin) they captured (was forced to be their sex slaves) actually did the 'job' voluntarily. Stupid, did they really think that people would fall for it?
So, however bad my old post are, I didn't delete them, I just did some correction here and there, when the grammatical mistakes are too much to endure.
It occurs to me that I might be reading this post some years later, sighing, just like what I did just now. But that is not a matter to be worried about right now, right? Besides, only when you has improved that you are able to criticise, so that should be a good thing.
this post is based on my (and Joy's too,actually) opinion only, so those whose opinion differ from mine, please don't get angry, I mean no offence, really. Few months ago
someone from other class thought of throwing a party, a graduation night or some sort, they ended up announcing about this 'Friendship Gathering', only available for Science classes students.
I don't felt like going at first, kinda learnt my lesson last time I attended this kind of party, but then my friends are going, and I think we should spend some time together (since I actually never went out with my best friend), so I paid the money to go...
Few days ago
Ah Joy and I were discussing about 'the night', and we were actually not really enthusiastic about it. Hey, both of us can guess what is going to come up during the gathering, there must be some sexy-dance, or things like that, which don't impress us.
Supposedly, the gathering starts at 7pm.
I showered and read my novella while waiting for my hair to dry off. Time passed without me realising and by the time I looked up,it is already 7pm! So I quickly changed, threw on the dress I picked, a simple but nice dress and dashed downstairs, unadorned and without make-up. All the while I found myself thinking: Hah this just proved how much I care about it.
Actually, I was thinking of bringing the novel I was reading along too, but I can't find any bag to put it in, and of course I can't just hold it and go inside the ballroom(yes, ballroom, a small one), people would be looking and think: God how geek she is. So I gave up on my perfect plan (yes it would be perfect to be to be able to bring a novel along) and only brought my camera instead.
My friends were waiting when I arrived and we went in together after Mei Ling arrived, they all looked beautiful enough. Turns out Joy also brings along a novel with her, what a coincidence!
And so the open ceremony and all other programs begun. I don't want to go into detail because there's nothing really worth talking about, except our class's performance which was really worth praising.
6 guys and 1 girl from our class were dancing, sketching and singing. Their performance was so awesome and amusing that I was giggling all the way, my hand was shaking so bad that the video I recorded was in a blur (okay not that bad, but still...). It shows that us Sc1 is not all about studying and have the creativity to come up with such witty and hilarious performance.
The other show which is also great was a slow dance performed by girls, 3 are ballet dancer, so you get the picture. They just looked so elegant!
But after that, no more good show. Most of them were dancing, shaking and showing off their body part (this is, at least what we thought anyway), duh. Seriously, others might think that those kind of korean dance is nice, but I think not, especially when some of them were shaking and twisting their butt like there's no tomorrow.
And so, Joy and I, along with some of our friend went home after 9.30pm. Actually, HALF of the 5Sc1 did. No wonder students from other classes said that Sc1 students are boring, lol. Guess we just don't share the same thought with them.
Don't get me wrong, I do appreciated those students' hard work, they took quite good care of the details and work hard to make this a perfect night, they even made a ticket for everyone. It is just that this occasion is not for us, different people have different opinion as I said. I still prefer some place quite, without all the noise and confusion. Got a taste of the precious peacefulness when me and Joy sneaked out of the ballroom, hmm how nice. But that cost us something, too, because when we were out, there's photography session, so we missed it, and we were the only two who attended but not in the picture, how sad... gyr
Exam is about eating. Don't deny it. Say 'yes', agree with me.
I eat while I read, just what normal people in this world would do. I mean, it's exam , and you'll need something. Something that can freshen you up, something that won't make you feel sleepy but energetic, giving you the energy to study (not grabbing the novels or any non-exam related book nearby).
In this case, that magical thing would be food! I cook for myself (because no one in this family is willing to do it for me in such late hour). A late supper will do.
It is not as if I can't find anything to eat, there's lots of food in my house (though they always didn't stay long), thanks to my parents for constantly restoring the food in our house. So emm, you see, I enjoyed eating all the food I can stuff into my mouth, mainly snacks, so much that I didn't care about getting fat, and that's how I got fatter. End of story.
