Merrrrrrrry Christmas! (or belated)
Hope you’ve been all happy and well, whether you really celebrate Christmas or not.
Reality check: it’s 26 Dec!
This amazing holiday is really coming to an end :’(
(Have you realised I use the word “amazing” a lot?? Now you’re going to take note HAHA)
Anyway here’s the summary of responses from the previous poll!
HAHAHAHA it was quite amazing – even though a small amount of people decided to take a vote, I think we can say that it’s actually quite a tough fight. To do away with your elbows or knees.
Personally it was quite a tough decision for me to make because up till now, I really cannot decide which one I’d rather not have. And it’s quite weird how seriously I am taking this but if I really, really, really have a choice I’ll do without my knees?? Because like that I can be excused from NAPFA. That’s it. (I am not a social conformist.)
And it’s essential to be able to feed yourself right??
Witnessed SL and K fighting it out in front of me during batch sleepover which joint is superior to the other – it was quite entertaining.
Major things that happened this week:
#1 Sleepover with #LSXJYS
Was super excited to meet up with this bunch and 19-20 Dec are the ONLY dates available for meet-up. So we made the most out of it. HAHA.
Still very grateful and thankful for all of them!! Hope we’ll meet up every single year till we have white hair and when we can finally talk about inappropriate things. HAHAHAHA.
Check out these lazy butts lounging on my legs (technically knees, maybe that’s also partially why I’d like to do without them)
And no idea who SL is stalking but wow
We bridged for quite some time and successfully taught JY how to play it!
Then we slacked around and began interrogation, starting from JM who wasnt really feeling it till midnight. HAHA.
Also got into our onesies (finally after a few months) and mine’s the Totoro one they got for me for my birthday :’) I love y’all.
Pictures didn’t turn out super amazing but it’s really only the people in it that matter!
My favourite berry
Rocking out in JM’s living room
Hood’s up y’all.
Showcasing FP for all to see!! (FP = friendly people)
Thank you Uncle for helping us snap so many photos HAHA!
Collage credits to SL HAHA moral of the story: SL only likes chicken drumsticks
lol stickers are essential
Slept at 345am or so after HTHT with SL (who went to sleep halfway) and JY :)
Always supporting you JY throughout (Anthony leggo)
While JM and K were doing weird stuff on the bad. Solo. Not together.
The next day we went to Macs (w/o SL who had FC) and bridge-d for 4+ hours omg.
It is slightly terrifying to know that HAHAHA.
Love y’all please meet up soon!!
#2 50th Monthsary with FBN
Didn’t do much but walked around Orchard/did essential Christmas shopping.
Thank you for everything :) Love you a lot a lot.
Don’t have many nice photos for the night hahaha!
The magical unicorn making it’s way all around the net
Tried Mr Bean’s Iced Chocolate Soya (or something like that) and it was a bit terrifying, maybe because it’s 10+pm already?
Wanted to drink bubble tea but ShareTea was closed because they had no more ice. No. More. Ice.
#3 Random Shizzles
This is a commercial break where I share with you random stuff that happened over the few days HAHA.
Went to Coffee Bean for dinner and had Baked Salmon Risotto which was kind of like Baked Rice.
Meh meh meh. Sister really liked it though. But honestly speaking it wasnt too bad.
But the next day mum made her authentic baked rice which I really, really, really love. Thank you mummy. :)
Have to share with you my new photo of a miniature item HAHA. It’s not a new item but still:
Super adorable I think. Love it a lot. Thanks jie for the edible chips :)
Basically just the other way… HAHA
Decided to do math some time this week and I just saw the note my senior left in the GC? Super sweet, thank you Jocelyn :) For bothering to type this and for the pepero biscuits!!
Okay, break over, resuming boring narration about my life.
Nobody can think of cringe-worthy names except SL but LOL check that out
Had a formal gift ceremony in Ippudo (ramen tasted better this time???? maybe because of empty stomach….. or company HAHA)
Sexy Beast v1
SL looks terrible here but Y is so dayum cute so I HAVE TO POST THIS
Guess where??? If you manage to guess you’ll get a present from me if you’re not SL or Y
Actually this is not candid bc she was posing for it
Sexy Beast v2
SL had a unibrow and this is poorly edited but Idc
Photo says it all
Thank you for the amazing company and night babies y’all very cute
and make me very shy
SLP (sanlianpai) with bbs
(Oh and stole this collage from SL’s tweet) (I didn’t ask for permission) (hahahaha)
#5 Gardens by the Bay on X’mas Eve
Went on a wild date with FBN hahahaha and it’s my first time going there!
Sian, cannot say that in another Never Have I Ever game again.
One of the first few photos we took (the lights for this weren’t very very nice in my opinion at night)
Selfie with nothing
Picture with a tree
Should I stop the lame captions until I really need them? Okay I shall.
B+ for effort??
Photo was taken with a selfie stick FBN dumped in my bag…….. Thought it’d be very humiliating but nobody knew us (me) after all and so I embraced it (we took so many photos with the stick omg HAHA)
Ultimate middle finger with my favourite plants
(took A LOT more, but will only send to people when necessary.)
Photo with Waterfall at Cloud Forest which was generally meh.
Strongly suggest you to check out the Flower Dome but then since you can go to both places with tix I guess you can just check it out???
Mandatory photo of these stuff
Ate at Peach Garden – FBN was gritting his teeth HAHAHAHA
Queue was long
Food took long (and it wasn’t the best)
Peach Garden, so long
(can I be a certified poet?? how do people even write so flawlessly with emotions so raw and tender?? and their poems were so heart-warming and not to mention, long)
HAHA ok I shut up.
My command of the language is terrible.
This looked like a humongous spoon containing porridge so white
And so bland I almost lost my appetite
Wanted to continue the poem but got insecure – what if you closed the window because of stupid rhymes I write?
But I understand (if you do the above) it’s alright
Don’t kill me. I’ll stop it. Really.
Wanted to post a picture of my roasted pork belly (haven’t eaten that in a few years I think) but the photo looked greasy and terrifying. Which it really is. So never mind.
Can you spot the daytime one above?
The lights were really nice inside the Flower Dome, but when it comes to the night, the place isn’t very conducive for photo-taking haha.
Possibly my favourite photo of the night :)
Have a lot more photos, but I’ll just publish the above before I bore you to death!
Dragged a tired FBN to watch Annie in Suntec and I really loved the movie. No kidding.
(Technically he was dragging me because I didn’t know my way around… hahah)
Removed my contact lenses in the cinema (favourite part of wearing contacts) and I think I heard a gasp somewhere
Hope you like my presents :)
#6 Family Party
Hehe had a little reunion with family :)
Hahaha okay will not bore you with lame things.
Mum ordered buffet dinner (which came really early) HAHA.
Food wasnt fantastic but really not too bad! (Beef was absolute no-no though, quote my sister “well done to the power of 10″)
Just going to insert pictures from here!!
With FBN’s family!! (Hello Aunty and Uncle and JY and SY)
The people most precious to me :)
Ended the day with my yummy yogurt.
y a m i
Thank you so much Gandie for snapping so many photos and having trust in me to handle your high-speed 32GB card HAHAHAA :) I love you!!
Thank you to Yima, Ahma, Gandie, Ganma, Jie, Mummy and FBN for all your presents – really, really, really appreciate them all.
My favourite portion of each present goes to the card though. It’s easy to buy a gift but to actually make an effort to handwrite a note/letter/card is another story.
I think a nice old sincere letter will be more than enough for a gift :’)
Getting super duper sentimental and emotional these days it’s slightly scary, but I think I’m at the point in life where I’m literally reflecting and thinking all the time?
But I’m also still saying stupid things and doing stupid things (no one should be spared from that) and things that make me a little less proud of myself (specifically talking about people behind their back, good or bad alike) – but I’m still growing up so spare me please.
I’ve recently been thinking about social media (lol not joining in the whole gushcloud saga, but #faithinhazel) and how it can affect our lives, besides the fact that we tend to waste time on it and let followers/likes determine our worth (I think I’m getting past this stage). But that’s not what really creeps me out – the fact that I know so much about people I don’t even see anymore really scares me. Had this discussion with my batch and it’s so incredibly insane. The information I can gather (and others can gather about me) from social media platforms is mind-boggling. I feel like I know someone just based on what they posts, but when I see them in real-life, we aren’t all that close or can simply be regarded as acquaintances.
The amount of information we (choose to) put out there for people to see can actually be under-estimated by ourselves – for all I know, you’re somebody who doesn’t even know how my Chinese name or my favourite drink but you know the places I’ve been to, the people I care about and the things I love. Which can be a lot more personal than what you don’t even know.
I think I’m not driving across any main message here and I’m not supporting some keep-your-accounts-private campaign, but I think how much we choose to let the public/strangers know about us is way more than we let on.
I’m pretty sure for most of us, we have acquaintances following us on social media platforms we post creepy and personal stuff on (and we tend to forget they exist because they hardly ever “like”/”comment”/”share”).
(Sometimes I feel like apologising for invading their privacy like “Hey, I’m sorry but I don’t think I’m supposed to know this but yeah, that was amazing!”)
So…. take note of that the next time you post something ultra terrifying/terrible/juicy/racy on your platforms.
You never know who’s reading.
HAHAHAHAH crap I’m not supposed to sound as creepy as that but yeah you should take notice.
By the way maybe you’ll think I’m spouting rubbish because I’m typing this at 1226am but yeah maybe I am
Also wanted to say thank you to the following people:
Thank you Lian and Vic for the letters :) y’all really very sweet thank u I treasure them a lot!!
(Blurred out addresses also HAHA)
Thanks Vetty baby and Aunty for the present!!!!!! :)
And thank you to all of you for reading also!!
(And everyone else who knows I like them and am very thankful for)
See you soon!
(P.S. Something to share: FBN bought couple piggybanks from China?? But after unwrapping of presents yesterday I realised he brought back 2 female versions… not sure if it’s a secret message HAHAHAHA) (He was quite angry)
Because I don’t have to return to school for the next two days, and will possibly attempt to do math wholeheartedly, I decided to blabber on my blog today. So IP Activities Week @ HCJC officially started on Monday and the past 3 days of school didn’t go too bad:
- Reunited with le classmates and other lovely friends
- Saw some familiar faces (not quite for seniors though)
- Moved my butt diligently to school every morning with a walking buddy (Vetty and FBN)
- Sweated buckets of nonsense (I really mean sweat if you’re thinking of any other weird foreign objects)
- Disturbed plenty of people (Yuan Zhen tops this list I think)
- Got the ink of my green Typo pen leaked all over my pencil case (special thanks to Lian and Sue for helping me clean up the nasty mess)
- Overheard a girl telling her friend how she had a wedgie
- Gotten quite confused and lost in the campus
- Followed a friend (namely Gwyneth) with Becca to collect photos at Clarke Quay/Chinatown area (bus ride of an hour)
- Had good food at Astons (with Sue Gwyneth Becca) HAHAHA
- Ate my first bowl of U-Mian in school and got myself a decent amount of ikan bilis
- Disclaimer: I didn’t dare to take a lot because it was running out anyway ^
- Ate frigging burning hot egg fried rice with Joany Woany after a meeting (hot as in boiling water burning hot not spicy burning hot)
- Found my love for the middle HC gate
- Printed 5 copies of the PW worksheet for 5 different people (myself included)
- Got hungry
- This is getting pointless yet it has a bullet point over there
Yeah… it’s kinda not in chronological order if you could infer but yes it didn’t go too bad I guess.
Not too bad at all.
Yet. (<- not sure if this word should be included)
It was quite weird putting on the HC uniform (smelly mysterious last button!!!!!!!) honestly.
And O Level results!
It went much much much better than expected. I guess I was expecting the worst because I didn’t exactly take HCL/Japanese as serious as I thought I should have.
But thankfully, I passed Japanese with a B3 (really need to show this one off, I was a failing student FYI) wahooooo! No one in Singapore failed hahahaha it was like 100% passes. I hope B3 is not the worst grade because I’ll be quite upset. But yes B3 is good enough for me. It’s wonderful. Okay to many other pro Japanese kids B3 may be a super sucky (I gave up censoring my words) grade la but WO HEN KAI XIN. Pretty good closure, if I say so myself.
HCL WAS GOOD TOO.
Byebye HCL + Japanese. See you guys soon in a non-academic manner!!
And it was nice being back in NY. ^-^
There is no relevance. Really.
Just inserting another quote to make this blog post appear more intellectual. At least you guys are reading something of some standard.
Really don’t wanna get back to school and sleep till 10am in the morning forever, but that’s not the way to live life. Hahaha.
And Math Test coming up and a whole lot of other *stuff*.
Just let me whine and complain even though the past 3 days will be literally nothing to what the next 2 years will bring.
Oh yes and remember:
Again, no relevance there. HAHAHAHAHA.
K lah byebye.
(P.S. I CANT WAIT FOR END JANUARY WOOHOOOOOOO)
