in exactly 7 more days, i'll return to the life of a civilian!
i'm glad for NS because i got to meet some really great people.
in fact, we went to the Science Centre today. too bad we dont have our cameras with us because we booked out straight from camp and went there.
next up we're probably going to the Singapore Airshow, Discovery Centre and the Zoo.
going to Alexandria Hospital this friday. hope everything will turn out ok.
i'm gonna end this post with a quote:
"Never board a school bus that is being driven by a dog wearing a police uniform"
the wheels on a bus go round and round...

i had a rather interesting dream last night. i cant say it was a good dream but neither was it bad.
a dream about P. seems like i saw her at some shopping mall and i was anxious to hide from her and she wants to pretend that she didnt see me.
kind of stupid but i dont know why my brain played it out that way.
in the end, we just said "hi" to each other and carried on with what we were originally doing.
the interesting thing is my brain chose to see her the way she was 4 or 5 years ago. i admit i liked her the way she was back then. there's not much difference but just those little ones.
watched "the mist" with edward today. ed feels the movie is too straightforward. though i agree, i enjoyed the storyline. it offered the idea that if you scare people enough and remove the things and people they turn to for help in times of trouble, they become the very monsters they are fearful of at the same time.
at least this wasnt a movie with a "one bomb solves all" ending. and the ending is really kind of frustrating. shant spoil it. go watch it. it's really good.

and so busy too. i finally picked up a guitar and tried to play some nice songs, but my hand ached from holding the chords for too long. i need to practice again.
i guess i did my resume pretty well, because lots of companies and job agencies kept calling me for wrong jobs.
i still need a job.
two busy weeks ahead.
tomorrow: driving @1520
monday: driving @ 1305 and 1520
TUESDAY: DRIVING TEST @ 1355 (I'm starting to have the hibby-dee-jibbies)
wednesday: ORD FFI
thurs-fri and sat-sun: LAST TWO DUTIES OF MY NSF LIFE!
the week after
30Jan: ORD Dental Appt
31Jan : Sakura Dinner
i almost didnt want to ORD. all because of the new policy for all servicemen to take the HIV test by doing a blood test.
medic: sorry ah. my first time. ok. i see the vein.
proceeded to stick the needle into me
medic: erm. eh? the vein disappeared leh.
with the needle still in me, he twisted the syringe around, trying to find the vein.
medic: aiya sorry sorry. dont know why the vein disappeared. i try the other arm ok?
of course try other arm lor. i have to ORD.
but at least he got it the second time around.
gary wasnt so lucky, he got stuck a grand total of 4 times before the medic drew blood.
and alex almost fainted. first time i came across the term "phobia for needles"
i need a job.

and the case of disappearing stuff carried on.
first my helmet.
now this. my pt singlet and admit tee went missing. and i was only away for two hours.
now i really have to lock my cupboard every time i leave my bunk.
wet weather. but I'm pretty OK with that. as long as it doesn't rain when I'm driving later.
i have this sudden urge to pick up the guitar and start playing songs again. but somehow there is this ominous feeling about it.
and i am so proud of myself that i've managed to get the delivery date for the caterer to deliver the food correct.
i think i'm going back to bed.
