+SOW part I+

am back from camp! but next week still have la. haha. ok it's much much better than i expected? at least my OG's nice and all. hmmm think i very much prefer my present OG than the union camp one cos i guess we kinda bond more? maybe because we have lesser people in one group ba. haha. what's funny is that i didn't really like the day programmes itself, what i liked about the 3 days were, yes, the 2 nights. haha! cos those were the times when we really bonded as an OG in our tutorial room, playing spastic games, truth-or-dare, telling stories, eating prata in the corridors, the (childish) guys scaring the girls, the making sure our flag doesn't face us when we sleep (cos our flag's damn creeeeeepy. my OG's name is The Ring, what do you expect? haha), the shivering like crazy in the room and rushing out into the warm air whenever we had the chance, walking all the way to fong seng for supper, singing songs, ... ... countless stuff la. haha :)

oh and fright night wasn't as scary as union camp's. HENG ARH!!! i guess it's because i was already prepared, having been scared out of my wits during union camp's fright night. haha! anws i was trying damn hard to look brave the whole time. lol! so it was damn funny. and between stations we told lame jokes so it kinda eased the tension a bit. ha.

tomorrow's Freshman Inauguration(?) Ceremony.. sigh have to think of what to wear. i don't have formal wear!! grrr.. and it's OG outing after that! yay :)

i don't really know what you feel, and i don't know what i feel too :( bleh am confused.

Oasis' Champagne Supernova (read the lyrics!)

How many special people change?
How many lives are living strange?
Where were you while we were getting high?
Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannonball
Where were you while we were getting high?
Someday you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova in the sky
Someday you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova
A champagne supernova in the sky
Wake up the dawn and ask her why
A dreamer dreams, she never dies
Wipe that tear away now from your eye
Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannonball
Where were you while we were getting high?
Someday you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova in the sky
Someday you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova
A champagne supernova
'Cuz we don't believe
That they're gonna get away from the summer
But you and I will never die
The world's still spinning around we don't know why
Why-why-why-why-i-i
How many special people change?
How many lives are living strange?
Where were you while we were getting high?
Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannonball
Where were you while we were getting high?
Someday you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova in the sky
Someday you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova
A champagne supernova
'Cuz we don't believe
That they're gonna get away from the summer
But you and I will never die
The world's still spinning around we don't know why
Why-why-why-why-i-i
How many special people change?
How many lives are living strange?
Where were you while we were getting high?
We were getting high...

+AHI!!+

Ahi outing yesterday was a blast! save for some really awkward situations. but i had fun all the same. haha.. yay i finally learned how to blade after like so many years since the time i fell and didn't dare to learn blading ever again. haha. so many thanks to tony and barry who taught me and always caught me before i lost my balance, and also to wenhan who helped pull me whenever i couldn't move (albeit laughing at the way i wobbled about. daaarn him. ha), and also to kl who was there for me to hold whenever i was about to fall! hahaha.. sigh i stupidly left my camera in the locker while we were blading so there aren't any pics (they'd be really hilarious!!) of the whole learning-to-blade process, complete with girls screaming and falling on our bums and the guys acting seh. lol. my left buttcheek hurts right now btw. ha! kinda bonded with the peeps present esp the girls, so yayyy am happy :)

yesh yesh let's all go blading again!!!!!!!!!! :)

yesterday night was ktv at K-ster in Chinatown. why why why Chinatown?! lol. so anws, yes ktv. didn't really sing much cos as you know i'm not a ktv person haha.. but the people made the whole thing really enjoyable :) ha. anws damn sad la i didn't get to sing any jay chou songs (i was waiting for his songs the whole night) cos i left earlier. hais.

am really hoping that this new bunch of friends i made will accompany me throughout my uni years, although i guess it'll be really hard for us to meet up when school starts, since we're all in different facs and all. sigh.

and i've finally found someone who has the same birthday as me!!! WING!!! we rock mans.. hahaha...

photos are up!

+thou hath a fetish for skirts :D+

spent the whole of yesterday and today sitting down somewhere with friends and talking, then doing some shopping, then sitting down to talk again. haha! pretty fun :) ok la, yesterday was more of walking here and there till my feet ached (ALL BECAUSE of ohm. heh. -kl and wanni nod vigorously in agreement- haha kidding! yay i finally bought my C&Ks!!!) and today was more of sitting around, talking and EATING (though sinhui and i managed to buy a skirt each amidst all that lazing about). hah. ok no link. ha.

i thought we were the most auntie-like people for cutting out the Straits Times Fantastic Four coupons in hopes of catching the movie at $1.60 today, but who was to know that all seats for both times (4pm and 6pm) were already snapped up when we reached cine at 11 plus! darn. haha.

tmr's Ahi outing at ecp.. hope it'll be fun! though i think there'll only be a few people going. haha..

and HARRY POTTER'S COMING OUT TMR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -jumps around like crazy- :D

it's like, 3 more weeks to school.. omg omg omg. so so freaky.

+post-camp syndrome+

haha paiseh i know this is like ten years ago but 25'03 bbq pics are up! :)

blah i'm suffering the after-effects of camp. lol. i dream of camp stuff when i sleep at night! is that like, good or bad?! hahaha. and they're going for mambo night this wed. that's too bad cos i don't club. hurhur.

passerby: who're you? leave your name lei!! then we can be friends right. hee.

read one of my OG friend's blog and decided to write this meaningful phrase down in case i forget. this was said during the heart-to-heart session four of us had on the last night of the camp. Never ever judge yourself by what others think of you. hmmmm ponder ponder ponder :)

+Union Camp :D+

i have lots and lots and lots of things to say but don't know how to put them into words. ha. am disgustingly BLACK and aching all over right now. slept from 4pm yesterday till noon today, so i'm feeling kinda shiok now (although i'm gonna go sleep again after this). ha! am too lazy to describe everything, but here goes..

camp was great :) made new friends and met many old ones.. the games were not really very wow but i guess my OG made them fun all the same. ha. i think the war games were the most happening of the lot. haha! got all dirty crawling on all fours most of the time on the grass and that was when my knees and hands got cut and bruised all over. lol. and we got soaked to the bone with water from water bombs and the frequent "mass Ahi shower" using the water hose. haha! and not to mention the fact that our group won the war games!!! like not seh. haha. complete with face paint and all. ha. didn't play pool games cos of obvious reasons (the guys were funny enough to ask me why) so i was left cheering on the group with the councillors. but it was fun all the same cos we kept thinking of unique cheers and going all bonkers shouting them. ha. beach games was fun except that i got soaking wet and with sand and dunno-what-else in my pockets so it was super gross. ha.

fright night. i was damn freaked out. it was in haw par villa btw. we went in fours but there were two stops we had to go in pairs. the scariest and no doubt the most memorable one was when two of us had to go inside this pitch dark toilet to look for a lighter and then i (yes, alone) had to go inside the last cubicle which was quite big, close the damn door and find a candle to light. wah indescribably scary can. i hecked the ghost and die die didn't want to let go of my partner's hand, so the ghost bo bian had to let both of us into the cubicle. lol! and for the rest of the stops the stupid ghosts kept asking the girls to do the tasks cos i think we looked scared la, clinging to the guys and all. haha. the last stop was in pairs and the stupid ghosts in the stupid cave also asked me to do everything. wth. ha. so girls, next time for fright night, no matter how scared you are, pretend that you're not and look straight at the ghost. ha.

oh okay the whole SP thing. it was really dumb, fullstop. though i was lucky to get a pretty nice guy for my SP, we had absolutely nothing to talk about, so it was damn sian. and i felt quite bad leaving him to join my OG mates in the club, but that was what everyone was doing right? right. and oh yes, clubbing. damn sian. i still have no idea what's so fun about getting high on drinks and squeezing onto the dance floor and moving to the pulsating beats and shaking away. -_-''' sorry to the clubbers out there k, i mean no offence. so me, kl and two other guys escaped from it all and ended up sitting by the s'pore river (my all time fave past-time!!) and talking about everything. so it was great in a way :) and yup that was the last night of our camp. we went for supper at around 1 plus as an OG at this 24-hr roti prata store beside NUS. then when we went back to Eusoff at around 3 a.m. some of us (including some seniors) sat around and talked and talked and talked the night away. until around 6 a.m. most of them buay tahan already and decided to turn in, and so there was one guy and three girlies left talking. i thought our chat was really heart-to-heart and kinda inspiring! haha. it was as if i saw everything in a different light after that. ya a bit exaggerating but that was how i felt the next morning. ha. so it was totally worth the sacrificing of sleep the whole night. hee.

oh ya cheering like crazy the whole of five days was really fun. i always get this i'm-really-proud-of-my-group feeling whenever we cheer. lol! kl i miss the Shwagali cheer already!!! haha. and oh yes the Cadbury song. so nice :) i finally remember the words. quick everyone sing! "wouldn't it be nice if you're from Ahi, then we can smile and be happy. when we see each other we go hee hee, then we jio each other for coffee.. wouldn't it be nice.." awwww! haha. ok i'm going all high right now. ha!

lol at the beginning of this post i mentioned that i'm too lazy to describe everything, but here i am typing in my longest entry ever. haha.

the only thing i regret is not bringing my camera :( like not sian. so now i'm waiting for everyone to post the pictures in the yahoo group!! yay :) and i can't wait for OG outing!!

so all in all, i'm glad i joined union camp! had so much fun :) sigh should've gone for science camp.. now i still don't know anybody in life science (except for ziyang the banana). practically all the guys in the camp are from engineering and all the girls are scattered in different facs. sigh.

i'm looking forward to orientation week now :)

+"I'd rather be nobody somewhere than to be somebody nowhere."+

summary of the week:
Monday was In My Father's Den with sinhui and a whole lot of laughing fits (hahaha); tuesday was hanging out at tm and suntec with ohm and walking till our feet ached; wednesday was sleeping in and spending the rest of the day watching my recorded tv programmes; thursday was a really hilarious medical checkup at NUS with kl and ph; today was War of the Worlds with kl and cel and then meeting ohm for Cafe Cartel; and tomorrow's gonna be bbq at ql's house! can't wait :)

two good movies in a week! yay :) In My Father's Den made me think a lot about stuff although some parts were really confusing! ha. the directing was superb..
I'd rather be nobody somewhere than to be somebody nowhere.. :)
and War of the Worlds kept us at the edge of our seats (not to mention that Tom Cruise was really hot :)) but the ending was a bit "huh wth?!?!" lol. but it was still nice overall!

i finally finally finally got my hands on Howie Day's Stop all the World Now!!!!!!! happy!!! am listening to it now :)

i'm off to camp next week.. don't really know if i'm looking forward to it or not. bleh. sigh was actually planning to meet up with long-time-no-see people like slacker and iris and my colleagues, but i guess that has to wait till the following week :(

it's weird to call NUS "my school". ewww. it feels so much better to call tj or stnicks "my school", but NUS? it's so foreign it scares me man. ha.

China!


Here comes the rain again
falling from the stars,
drenched in my pain again
becoming who we are.
As my memory rests
but never forgets what I lost,
wake me up when september ends.
Summer has come and passed,
the innocent can never last,
wake me up when september ends..
