Night Festival 2012

Went to the Night Festival! ๐Ÿ™‚

We left house at like 8pm HAHAHA afterall it’s the Night Festival omg. Was with my sister and cousin. ๐Ÿ˜€

The first place we passed by was SOTA- but the lights went out before we could take any shots :/ It should be wiring of certain animals and then lighting up in the dark in different colours? Damn pretty omg.

Walked on to the National Museum of Singapore next- which was really noisy (and crowded).


The building became sort of a screen and they showed many many different images and the transition. Unfortunately, I don’t get the underlying meaning :/


It was really crowded HAHAHA and the stuff on the building change damn quickly, so we had to wait for something nice to capture above our heads LOL.



Camwhoring with some wooden stuff outside LOL. and well my hair is growing quickly, it’s overtaking my head! HAHAHA.

Then we moved into the building to see some 3D paintings that people were taking photos with heh. Damn cool! ๐Ÿ™‚ Had to queue up though so we missed it hahaha. Instead we headed upstairs…

and waited 10 minutes for a Wayang Kulit show ๐Ÿ˜€ Which was damn cool omg. I vaguely remember doing this 2 years ago but it was never this cool… people were doing the skit behind the scenes of the white cloth LOL and I was damn amazed by how they fade in and fade out the shadow puppets. And their puppets are carved really nicely omg, I thought of the pains I had 2 years ago using a damn art knife to cut a 1mm x 1mm square and I really respect the people who designed the pupets LOL.



All the scenes are carved out so nicely ๐Ÿ˜€

After that it was already nearing 10pm (?!) so we wanted to head over to another museum to check out different stuff. Then we passed by a stage on the way. And when we reached Roly Poly was going on LOL, and when we wanted to leave, Gangnam Style started playing HAHAHA. So Sister & I stayed on since they were teaching how to dance it LOLOL We were jumping like siao when the song played. Damn high please, unfortunately 90% of the audience just stand there and take out camera -_-


Couldn’t capture very nicely cause we were far behind. Okay but at least I was one of those who anyhow dance okay, improve the atmosphere thanks!


Food stores at like 10pm. Not cheap :/


And well, the Singapore Art Museum look great too HAHA. But I’ve been there before so I got bored (no particularly special displays) and we headed to SAM at 8Q instead ๐Ÿ˜€


Acting cute max LOL.


Some eye display outside hehe.

We went inside to find our brother’s drawing in a sea of….


It filled every wall we died LOL and we created ours too! ๐Ÿ˜€ I chose the template of a rabbit (only the rabbit is given) and created my own background HAHA


The sister.


My cool drawing LOL It was damn random… cause I was thinking of what to draw and I suddenly remembered kayaking? with NCC? So I drew out since I didn’t see anyone else draw a kayak ๐Ÿ˜› There were real pretty ones, people decorated the rabbit as a national flag at Marina Bay omg. So chio ๐Ÿ˜€ I wished I was better at Art :/

and then there was some film screening as well ๐Ÿ˜€


Cool and calming music omg. “Gachapon Girl” or something LOL. by then it was 12am and people were still streaming in like… ๐Ÿ˜€ SINGAPORE HAS NIGHT LIFE!

Got pretty hungry by then, so we went to meet up with my brother and had supper with my brother at Choa Chu Kang ๐Ÿ˜€ (which is the likely cause of my diarrhoea but apparently I ate the same things as my sister but she is having constipation instead).

Slept at 4am that night. Haven’t slept that late in a looooong time, so it was pretty awesome hahaha. Unique experience around museums again, I love museums ๐Ÿ˜€

I had the first ever MC in my 4 years of RV life. Yes I love school that much.

Nah I’m just kidding I just don’t like to taint my clean attendance records ๐Ÿ˜ฆ 14 VRs this year is already enough (thanks to New Zealand and Cambodia LOL, the number is gonna hit 20 when I leave for Australia x.x)

I wanted to get my ass (yeah that’s the point) to school to survive the day but unfortunately I couldn’t because my stomach was churning every minute inching me towards the female toilet that lies across the classroom block. 4G pains.

But it hurt so much I didn’t want to omg. Conflicting thoughts here.

So in the end I left school cause of a diarrhoea. Lovely brother came to pick me up ๐Ÿ˜€ I wasn’t going to survive the day wanting to go to the toilet every moment… but that sounds like a major excuse. Plus the fact that I look perfectly fine, I’m not dying or anything. I just need the toilet about 3 times an hour.

In the past when I heard people missing school cause of “stomach ache” or “diarrhoea” or “stomach discomfort” I’m just like mai fake la, want pon ๅฐฑ say la, honesty is the best policy yo. But now I get it… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Really dislike the school toilet seats anyway, used the faucet to wash about 3 seats in the short time I was in school today. Weird liquids :/

8 years of friendship

Happy birthday Goh Kay Vin!

Born 4 months before me. 25th is such a cool date cause got me 4 months later.

You’ll never ever see this because you’re too busy with everything to even stalk people… (much less the awesome me) HAHAHA. Do you even have time to talk? ๐Ÿ˜€

Academics zai CCA zai Council zai. Jack of all trades and a master of noneall LOL How you juggle please I think I will cry every night if I were you. Pro at this game of life la zaikia.

AND I KNOW YOU NEED A FAVOUR WHEN I START HEARING THIS “Hui Ping you have spent half your life with me already leh. Classmates since P3… … such strong years of friendship. Hui Ping you know you have been a really awesome friend for 8 years… … … … want donate to SJAB Donation Drive?

HAHAHAHA WHAT’S NEW? ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a great day ahead!

Life’s pretty good to me recently.

Except the weighing scale. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Too lazy to compile my thoughts

1. I sincerely pray that no teachers read my blog.
Cause I think if I’m a teacher, I’d go through the class list and stalk out everyone ๐Ÿ˜€ Afterall, it’s pretty scary if your teachers know you better than you know yourself. ๐Ÿ˜€ So I’ve been the best student in the world by doing teachers’ day gifts one week in advance. Hope I’ll be able to finish in time ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

2. I just realised how organised I am this year hahaha.
I haven’t talked to some of my friends in a long while, and looks like I have been leading the time of my life recently.

“What do you do at home ah?”
“Sleep la.”
“When you wake up?”
“Revise la duh.”
“You revise all the time meh?”

I thought for a really long while, and I answered with some politically correct answer.

“Read books.”

That’s true okay I read Wattpad almost every night LOL. I think he was pretty astounded by my reply HAHA. Firstly, perhaps I just don’t have a bookworm face? ๐Ÿ˜€ Secondly, I’ve always been seen as the major procrastinator, always leaving stuff till 3am to do. Which results me dozing off in class almost every single day.

Not that I don’t anymore (sorry teachers it’s built-in I swear), but I have lost the stamina to stay up to 3am doing work. Maybe it’s with age, or because I am procrastinating lesser now. When I get used to completing work before 10pm, 1am becomes hell.

3. I have cried the most in 2011 and 2012.
I truly feel that RVians cry the most in an academic year. It’s not that I’m under-achieving, but personal goals are there. It’s like my Chinese is quite horrendous, so I don’t expect myself to get 56/70 for ไฝœๆ–‡ or anything. In fact I’m already very pleased when I attain at least 40/70. It’s all about personal goals, I’m trying my best to understand this. It’s like if someone achieves one of the top placings in class (eg. Deqian for Econs), he’d still complain because it’s a B3. He wanted an A1, but got a B3. He may think it’s horrible, but the person getting E8 (hello good morning everyone) would probably send him a slap. Not that I did though, cause I’m wonderful.

I’m trying my best to understand this because I have high personal expectations for certain subjects myself. I’d get irritated if my Math (this year) scores anything less than an A1, that’s purely because I don’t want to wreck my A1*s. But the person scoring C6 would probably throw me into hell. Like, “What’s your freaking problem I can’t even get C5 and you’re whining about an A1. Just go to hell seriously.”

And that’s precisely the reason why I feel so freaking inferior all the time despite doing okay. Others would be like I’D BE SO HAPPY IF I GOT YOUR SCORE. I’d feel considerably pleased with my grades, but I’d keep asking myself why did I drop from the previous time. Why did I this why did I that. It’s these personal expectations that strive me to do better- to reach my goals. Isn’t that the point of a value-added education? And when I really fail (like FAIL, F9) a subject, it just feels like a failure smacking right in your face. “I studied, why did I fail?” “What’s the use of putting in effort if it doesn’t pay off? I’m not studying anymore.”

These thoughts often get the better of me and cause me to break down randomly. Or perhaps it’s cumulative, a whole series of failures (be it personal expectations or the literal meaning) would make you feel like jumping into the sea. And when you have no outlet, I think it’s only human that you burst out crying.

I’m not even including the demoralising comments at home. Like the line from ๅฐๅญฉไธ็ฌจ2 that Sarah tweeted yesterday, “ๆˆ‘ๅœจไฝ ไปฌ็œผ้‡Œๅฐฑๆ˜ฏไธ€ๆ— ๆ˜ฏๅค„๏ผŒไธ็ฎกๆˆ‘ๅšไป€ไนˆไฝ ไปฌ้ƒฝ่ง‰ๅพ—ไธๅฅฝ๏ผŒไธ็ฎกๆˆ‘ๅš็š„ๅคšๅฅฝไฝ ไปฌ้ƒฝ่ง‰ๅพ—ไธๅคŸใ€‚” When I get a B3, you’d say an A1 is better. When I get an A1, you’d ask why I couldn’t achieve an A1*. Reminds me of the Chinese comprehension passage I did earlier, “ไฝ ็œ‹ไบบๅฎถ่ฐ่ฐ๏ผŒๆฏ”ไฝ ๅผบๅคšไบ†๏ผโ€œ ๅฎถ้•ฟ็ˆฑๆฏ”่พƒ… …

So damn true. But perhaps if they didn’t plant such high expectations on my grades, it might just be a list of DEFs now. Sometimes, I don’t know whether to be thankful or not.

When people ask me how I do okay (not the best, but not the worst either) despite dozing off in class so frequently, I honestly do not have an answer. Perhaps it’s because I zone off 1/2 the lesson and really pay attention to the 1/2 (or less). All that will be fresh in my head. I can’t take in too much information at one go. Cause I’ll forget everything anyway, I mean… I don’t even know what’s a seawall anymore.

Or maybe perhaps I’m just the last-minute worker. I guess what people see of me is merely on the surface, “How come you sleep in class everyday, yet your grades are okay?” No, I don’t feel insulted. Obviously I’m aware of my horrendous sleeping habits (in class?), but somehow it can’t be helped :/ You’d see me dozing in class, but that’s only because I’m studying and revising my ass off till the wee hours of the night. Or trying my best to produce quality work just so I can secure that A on my assignment or something. I have bad sleeping habits, I’d admit it. I’ve tried to undo it several times, but I still doze in class anyway. I don’t know why.

Oh man unknowingly I ranted so much. Was thinking of locking this up, but my conscience is clear… I guess?

The little things around you

I think it’s normal to raise an eyebrow when you tell your friends you want to eat Kopitiam. “U siao?”

(or perhaps only Delta ’12/4G ’12? HAHA)

Everyone’s so accustomed to the fact that we’ll be having at least a fast food meal because 1) it is affordable, 2) it serves you a DRINK, 3) really much more convenient than having to scout for seats around.

But sometimes I think Kopitiam (or NTUC Foodfair in this case) serves pretty good food too. Not much healthier, but perhaps it’s better than eating a McChicken everyday. ๐Ÿ˜€


Yes the serving was pretty large, but I wiped the plate clean. Shiny clean, cause oil was left on it ๐Ÿ˜€

I think I have a really humongous appetite for a girl my age.

It’s like how I woke up from my afternoon nap (WOW YES RARE) today and wiped my seafood fried rice clean. The portion was so huge… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

…and I think I’d still be able to eat if you served me say… chocolate waffles? Or Mango Pomelo Sago or something.

My mouth ought to be taped.

The time of the year has come. TEACHERS’ DAY CARDS ๐Ÿ˜ฆ They should totally include this in the job scope of a class chairperson.

In fact I think that’s one of the most tiring jobs a chairperson has to undertake. Imagine you have a test the next day and you have to decorate a really really pretty card for a teacher you really love.

Aiyo.

Supper at Geylang

As title stated, siblings & I & cousin & brother’s friend made a trip down to Geylang to have Dim Sum LOL. Lot 1 just had too many snacks- but none of the eateries appealed to us. Something cool would probably be more preferable as usual, hence… Geylang. HAHAHA.

It has really bustling night life ๐Ÿ™‚ and the Dim Sum we visited was pretty delicious as well! 24-hour omg.


The place we ate at. Very classic style heheh like a typical Dim Sum roadstall in Hong Kong…? Quite cool hahaha I like the charm of such places.



Our first round LOL We ordered again cause not full HAHA.


My grass jelly priced at only $2 omg the portion was quite huge HAHAHA. And the food took really long to come so half was depleted by the time the first course arrived LOL.

It was pretty yummy and quite affordable given that it’s a night joint…? ๐Ÿ˜€ Didn’t eat till I was really full though, I mean that’s so oily and fried and it was 10.30pm LOL. Wah now I see again hungry liao ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Our food took really long to come so by the time we were finished it was 12am. At Geylang. ๐Ÿ˜€

So we made a few rounds on the car… led by my brother’s friend LOL. An interesting experience actually.

On our way to the Dim Sum eatery (126) we passed by 2 $10 notes on the floor. One was torn up and one was in proper condition. But none of us dared to picked it up… because my siblings saw the conflict going on between a customer and a prostitute when we were in the midst of finding a parking lot. My brother said something like it’s about ๅฐŠไธฅ? Your job as a prostitute is already looked down upon by the general population, and yet some people take advantage of that…? “ๆˆ‘ๅชๆœ‰ๅ€ผ$20” that kind of feeling. Probably sucks for them as well. Yup, the prostitute tore the money and threw it on the ground. Pride ๐Ÿ™‚

We passed by many small alleys and there were SO many of them ๐Ÿ˜ฆ They were all just standing by the roadside for customers omg. I felt really sad omg, many different nationalities. We also happened to see some of them going up to men just to get some business? Grabbing their arms and pulling them just to draw them nearer. Omg it was really really sad because many of them were all so young and pretty. Some of them were really really pretty omg, when we passed by the alley we were repeating “่ฟ™ไธชๅพˆ็พŽleh!!!” “ๅ“‡่ฟ™ไธช็œŸ็š„ๅพˆๆผ‚ไบฎleh!”

I mean seriously who will enjoy this job? It’s most probably circumstances that force people into these situations. Reminds me of Famine Camp- no one would actually go be a prostitute cause you’ll be looked down upon… cause you have to sacrifice a lot. I mean seriously! Who will be genuinely interested in those… customers. It’s all for them to make a living ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Come on, so many of us chuckle when the phrase “ๅŽปๆ‰พ้ธกโ€œ is brought up. I’m guilty of that myself…? :/

Life sucks so much for them bleh. Not that I’ll become one next time, but still… full of respect and admiration for them? Cause I know I’ll never be able to put down my pride for such an occupation :S It was an interesting trip hahaha, should really thank my brother for introducing me to such places. Not that it will ๆ•™ๅๆˆ‘, but at least I know what goes on in this red light district after reading about it on the papers and hearing people poke fun at this place all the time…? :S

Being an audience


I guess it’s pretty obvious where I’ve been today! It was a cool experience and worrisome in a way, because we’d be trashed at the exact same venue eventually. Hopefully not that badly! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Back to Republic Poly after 14 months… ๐Ÿ˜€ I miss Space Course! It kicked off my exciting NCC life in a way.. hehehe ๐Ÿ˜€ Walking by the Sports Complex and everything reminds me of how we awkwardly met one another on the first day not knowing where to go, falling in at the enclosed aircon area, running to the field to launch our rockets :-))

I miss that place very very much as well! So much has changed, since I’m not in NCC anymore? Hahaha.

It was steamboat buffet with my siblings again after that- I wonder when I’ll stop eating ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I’m really becoming a balloon, my weight just keeps on increasing and it’ll never drop. I want to go for another famine camp! Okay la maybe not hahaha, I’ll control my diet… soon ๐Ÿ˜›

Really wanted to go for the 5km run this morning, but tied down by random (sudden) commitments, so sorry Kwek :-(( (even though you’ll never see this!)

Stop doubting my abilities. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Previous post was a pile of rubbish posted out of angst, but sometimes I’m pretty thankful. Or I might just have straight F9s in my report card now.

I’ll study even harder than anyone else during this period and show you that I don’t suck as much as you think.
