omg i've got SO much to blog about the biod fieldtrip to Changi Beach but i dunno where to start. lol! had so much fun :) we were supposed to do seining (going into the water chest-deep with a huge net to catch stuff) but all the girls in my lab group refused to go into the water. wahaha. so the guys did the job and all we did were ooh and aah over the creatures caught in the net. hehe. i never imagined there could be this much life off the coast of Singapore, with all that water pollution and all.
wheeeee puffer fishes are the cutest things on earth!!! DAMN CUTE CAN!!! they were all lying harmlessly in the net, then once our TA took one in his hand it puffed up and looked exactly like a white ping pong ball with tiny eyes, mouth and a tail poking out. and the puffed-up part super nice to touch!!! ohmygod. i'm hyperventilating. but they're so cute la cannot stand it already. then once our TA placed it back in the water it just floated on the surface (like how ping pong balls do) upside down and he had to poke and prod it with a stick to make it go underwater. hahaha damn cute can.
too bad no pictures of my dear puffed up ping pong puffer fish :((( should have brought camera. gahhhh.
and we saw seahorses! and jellyfish! and prawns! and crabs! and squids! and cuttlefish! and starfish! and sea urchins! and see cucumbers! and barnacles! and tripod fish which look like tripods! hahaha.
fieldtrips make me happy. hehheh. although i'm dead tired now.
and i've gotta wake up early tmr to do EL project at michael's house! sigh.
and happy birthday sinhui!!! :D

what a day.
apart from having to wake up at 6 am (this time the sunrise didn't do wonders for me), i walked up the slope from science to university hall under the scorching sun a total of 3 times; had to climb over a stupid barrier while attempting a shortcut to phy tutorial (was wearing a skirt btw. (!!!) it was quite a hilarious ordeal actually, couldn't stop laughing); suffered serious cramps for the whole of tutorial; didn't contribute much during EL project discussion cos i was too tired and coudn't think properly; had completely no appetite the whole day; and basically felt like crap.
am so glad the day is over.
the big guy never fails to chase the dark clouds away :))) thanks for tolerating an irritating PMS-ing me :(

i'm so tired.
if a frickin stats assignment can make us so drained, i totally can't imagine what'll happen in the next few weeks when all the projects are due.
i've got shitloads of things to do. sigh.
on a better note, CRASH won best picture!!! :D the papers're all ranting about how Brokeback should win and how the Oscars ultimately favours americans and all. but at least Lee Ang won best director right? hee.
hehehe which reminds me i'm supposed to lend the Crash vcd to ohm. wahaha! ok ok i'll remember!!!
okies after getting a wee bit high, it's time to get back to physics tutorial :/

The greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just to love, and be loved in return.

three little words
There are many things that we can do to perk up and strengthen our interpersonal relationships. Yet the most effective involves the saying of just three words. When spoken or conveyed, these statements have the power to forge new friendships, deepen old ones and restore relationships that have cooled. The following three-word phrases can enrich every relationship.
"I'll Be There"
If you have ever had to call a friend in the middle of the night, to take a sick child to hospital, or when your car has broken down some miles from home, you will know how good it feels to hear the phrase "I'll be there." Being there for another person is the greatest gift we can give. When we are truly present for other people, important things happen to them and us. We are renewed in love and friendship. We are restored emotionally and spiritually. Being there is at the very core of civility.
"I Miss You"
Perhaps more marriages could be saved and strengthened if couples simply and sincerely said to each other "I miss you." This powerful affirmation tells partners they are wanted, needed, desired and loved. Consider how ecstatic you would feel, if you received an unexpected phone call from your spouse in the middle of your workday, just to say "I miss you."
"I Respect You"
Respect is another way of showing love. Respect conveys the feeling that another person is a true equal. If you talk to your children as if they were adults you will strengthen the bonds and become close friends. This applies to all interpersonal relationships.
"Maybe You're Right"
This phrase is highly effective in diffusing an argument and restoring frayed emotions. The flip side to "maybe you're right" is the humility of admitting, "Maybe I'm wrong." Let's face it. When you have a heated argument with someone, all you do is cement the other person's point of view. They, or you, will not change their stance and you run the risk of seriously damaging the relationship between you. Saying "maybe you're right" can open the door to further explore the subject, in which you may then have the opportunity to get your view across in a more rational manner.
"Please Forgive Me"
Many broken relationships could be restored and healed if people would admit their mistakes and ask for forgiveness. All of us are vulnerable to faults, foibles and failures. A man should never be ashamed to own up that he has been in the wrong, which is saying, in other words, that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.
"I Thank You"
Gratitude is an exquisite form of courtesy. People who enjoy the companionship of good, close friends are those who don't take daily courtesies for granted.
They are quick to thank their friends for their many expressions of kindness. On the other hand, people whose circle of friends is severely constricted often do not have the attitude of gratitude.
"Count on Me"
A friend is one who walks in when others walk out.
Loyalty is an essential ingredient for true friendship; it is the emotional glue that bonds people. Those that are rich in their relationships tend to be steady and true friends. When troubles come, a good friend is there indicating you can "count on me."
"Let Me Help"
The best of friends see a need and try to fill it.
When they spot a hurt they do what they can to heal it. Without being asked, they pitch in and help.
"I Understand You"
People become closer and enjoy each other more if they feel the other person accepts and understands them.
Letting your spouse know in so many little ways that you understand them, is one of the most powerful tools for healing your relationship. This applies to any relationship.
"I Love You"
Perhaps the most important three words that you can say. Telling someone that you truly love them satisfies a person's deepest emotional needs. The need to belong, to feel appreciated and to be wanted. Your family, your friends and you, all need to hear those three little words, "I love you."
