no matter how things turn out, tomorrow is going to be a very sad day for me.

maybe from tomorrow onwards i'll be very sad.


i just realised i forgot to run the disk defragmenter this morning.

i'm too tired, it's not done running. Gonna cancel it and run it maybe next sunday.

humpty dumpty had a big fall.

a few big falls actually.

all because sherman and i were exploring different rollerblading techniques.

ok. before i sleep, gonna share a few "why did the chicken cross the road?" jokes:

Why did the Chicken cross the Road?

BARACK OBAMA:The chicken crossed the road because it was time for a CHANGE! The chicken wanted CHANGE!

JOHN MC CAIN:My friends, that chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

HILLARY CLINTON:When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken to cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure -- right from Day One! -- that every chicken in this country gets the chance it deserves to cross the road. But then, this really isn't about me.......

GEORGE W. BUSH:We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here. If the chicken is against us, it must be dealt with quickly and severely. A loose chicken can be a dangerous terrorist threat to the free world!

DICK CHENEY:Where's my gun?

COLIN POWELL:Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road...

BILL CLINTON:I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What is your definition of chicken?AL GORE:I invented the chicken!

JOHN KERRY:Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.

PAT BUCHANAN:Obviously the chicken intended to steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.

DR. PHIL:The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on 'THIS' side of the road before it goes after the problem on the 'OTHER SIDE' of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he's acting by not taking on his 'CURRENT' problems before adding 'NEW' problems.

OPRAH:Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross this road so bad. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going togive this chicken a car so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.

ANDERSON COOPER - CNN:We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet beenallowed to have access to the other side of the road.BARBARA WALTERS:Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart warming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its life long dream of crossing the road.

NANCY GRACE:That chicken crossed the road because he's GUILTY! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.

MARTHA STEWART:No one called me to warn me which way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer's Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No 'little bird' gave me any insider information.

DR SEUSS:Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I've not been told.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY:To die in the rain. Alone.

GRANDPA:In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

ARISTOTLE:It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

ALBERT EINSTEIN:Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?


JOHN LENNON:Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together, in peace.

BILL GATES:I have just released eChicken2007, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your check book. Internet Explorer is an integral part of the Chicken. This newplatform is much more stable and will never crash...#@&&^(C% ......... reboot

today is both a good day and a bad day.

good in the sense that i clocked in my 5km run today at 17min27sec. i'm a whole 33sec faster!

bad in the sense that i forgot to wear a belt today. so my pants was like dropping after every few steps.

so embarrassing.

i'm gonna share some good stuff with everybody.

husband & wife:
In a divorce court, a woman requested the judge: "Your honour, I want to divorce my husband."
"But why?" asked the judge.
She replied, "Because he is unfaithful to me."
The judge asked, "How do you know?"
She replied, "My lord, not a single child resembles him."

love your enemy:
From his death bed, the husband called his wife and said, "One month after I die, I want you to marry Sammy."
"Sammy? But he is your enemy!"
"Yes, I know that! I've suffered all these years so let him suffer now."

Wedding Ring:
At the cocktail party, one woman said to another, "Aren't you wearing the wedding ring on the wrong finger?"
The other replied, "Yes I am. I married the wrong man."

"Dad I was away for a week. Yesterday I sent a fax to my wife I'd be home that night, and when I got into my room I found my wife in another man's arms.
Why Dad? Tell me why!"
Dad kept silent for a few minutes, then coolly said, "Maybe, Son, she didnt receive the fax."

Same Service:
A husband visited a marriage counselor and said, "When we were first married, I would come home from the office, my wife would bring my slippers and our cute little dog would run around barking. Now afterten years it's all different. I come home, the dog brings the slippers and my wife runs around barking."
"Why complain?" said the counselor. "You're still getting the same service."

talk about husband:
One woman told another, "My neighbour is always speaking ill of her husband, but look at me, my husband is foolish, lazy and a coward; but have I ever said anything bad about him?"

love to do:
A wife, one evening, drew her husband's attention to the couple next door and said, "Do you see that couple? How devoted they are? He kisses her everytime they meet. Why dont you do that?"
"I would love to," replied the husband. "But I dont know her well enough."

No answer back:
A man was telling his friends, "When my wife gets infuriated, she starts shouting at me, my children and even at our dogs and nobody dares answers back."
One of his friends asked, "And when you're angry, what do you do?
the man replied, "I also shout angrily at the windows and doors of the house and none of them dares to answer back."

Come home late:
A woman was complaining to the neighbour that her husband always came home late, no matter how she tried to stop him.
"Take my advice," said the neighbour, "and do what I did. Once my husband came home at 3am in the morning and from my bed I called out: 'Is that you, Jim?'" and that cured him.
"Cured him!" asked the woman, "but how?"
The neighbour said, "You see, his name is Bill."

Problem father:
"You looked troubled," I told my friend, "What's your problem?"
He replied, "I'm going to be a father."
"But that's wonderful!" I said.
"What's so wonderful? My wife doesnt know about it yet."


it's bad enough i'm feeling miserable and it's only going to get worse in the next few days.

why do you have to choose now to ignore me?

Thursday, June 26, 2008

today is not a good day again.

dropped my boss' camera and the LCD screen went kaput.

so i have to pay for the repairs.

there goes $170.92. and the service guy still tell me he gave me 32% discount already. do i care? it's still a lot of money!!

so let's talk about the phone that i wanna get next month.

if nothing goes wrong, i would like to change from my current phone...

been using that since JC1. hopefully if nothing goes wrong(again), gonna change to:

but then, if that is no longer available, i'll just have to spend more money to get this:

had a terrible dream a few nights ago.

not really a nightmare, but just terrible.

i dreamt that i was back in primary school and as a primary school kid too.

and we were all having recess and everyone was crowding around the monkey bar waiting to have a go.

then this little kid, probably pri one or two, tried the bigger-sized monkey bar and he couldnt even reach the first rung even when he's tiptoeing. BUT he jumped forward, hoping to catch the third or forth rung.

and he missed...

and he fell flat on his face and was bleeing from his nose.

so everyone started laughing at him. and i joined in too.

yet the moment i started laughing at him, everyone stopped and started to point at me and mumble things like how i'm so heartless to laugh at the boy.

and everybody started ignoring me.

except for this classmate of mine.

i cant even remember her name, except that she's got super long and super straight hair.

and apparently she had the same hairstyle all the way from primary school to junior college.

but anyway, she was nice enough to talk to me, except that i cant hear her, so i told her to speak louder.

she said, "ok" then started speaking in japanese, which i completely do NOT understand. i kept telling her not to speak in jap. she'll say ok but still revert back to that.

somehow i knew i was in a dream.

and i was thinking to myself: "crap. this is one of those make-no-sense dream"

and she just kept on yakking away in jap and i just sat there like a fool, nodding at whatever she said.

well, in my dream, i was keeping track of time and i realised that we've sat like that for 9hrs. trust me, those 9hrs didnt just flash by. i lived through EVERY single second of it.

then all of a sudden, she's speaking english again: "can you climb a tree?"
for some reason, i told her yes and she told me to climb this particular tree.

which i did.

and then i thought it was stupid.

so i climbed back down.

when i'm back down, somehow she grew taller and taller.

and she told me to hold my left hand with my right.

i gave her the "???" look and she said, "just do it for me ok?"

ok. so i did. and i woke up immediately after that.

lol. really one of those make-no-sense dream.


this morning's run was terrible.

i seem to have got my breathing rhythm all wrong.

so i was huffing and puffing away like an old man.

when i finished my 5km run, i took a look at my watch, expecting my timing to be worse than before.

but surprisingly, i finished the 5km jog in 18min flat.

i've shaved off 2min!!

it's not exactly very fast, but it's a new record and a personal best.

so i guess i have to learn to mess up my breathing rhythm.

Sunday, June 22, 2008

it's so sad that you've never turned around to take one last look.

and yet how i spend the whole day waiting for just one lousy reply which i'll never get..

quite interesting actually..

i promise:

I'll TALK my way out of ANYTHING!
i'm very sad now.

raining at such an early time today, so i cant go cycling.

yesterday, i had supposedly planned for nothing, in the end, so many things happened.

went rollerblading with seamus and eugene. we're gonna try ice-skating next time round.

went tout with alxeandria last night and we caught the movie "Get Smart".

next up, i want to watch "Dont Mess With The Zohan". maybe next Sunday. but i feeling cancelling my appointment with Sherman. i'm spending too much money.

and i need moo lah for the big-V plan.


i'm so excited about the big-V plan.

Tuesday, June 17, 2008

Today is NOT a good day. because 2 bad things happened. one within my control, the other not.

so this is the first one:
I made the wrong ASSUMPTION and jumped to the wrong CONCLUSION.


i know i'm better than that, so i'm guessing it's just a moment of weakness.

oh man.

but i'm also glad because i got to see the next higher level of beauty. of course, it's very very superficial and again, i'm better than that.

so just some indulgence once in a while.

the second one:
i'm gonna be a loner for my university days.

i just found out that NTU's Combined Engineering Freshmen Orientation Camp's gonna happen when i'm OVERSEAS.


this sucks.

and i just realised a third thing:
university miscellaneous fees are friggin expensive.

looks like i'm gonna have to buy a loaf of bread at around $2.00 and live off on it for a week.

i have just got to find a way to earn income while studying.

"No deserving student shall ever be denied of education because of his financial situation."

"bull****," i say...

goodness gracious

plans are going upside down.


the fear of loss is too great and overwhelming for me to handle..
My goodness

i have embarrassed myself thoroughly

this morning i was sick to the stomach with the porridge-for-breakfast routine, so i went to the nearby hawker centre to see what my stomach wants instead.

and so sub-consciously, unconsciously, or whatever conscious state i was in, i tripped and i fell.

the shoelace on my left shoes came off, so my right foot stepped on it.

and well, as they say, "The rest is history".

i really hoped that i fell hard enough to open a hole and bury myself in it.

so bloody unglamorous for EVERYBODY to see my fall like that.

and it doesnt help when you know that you tripped yourself.



well, last night's "outburst" invited quite a number of much-needed and unwanted calls.

wasnt really angry or anything.

just that i went around reading some friends' blogs and they are so depressing/negative/angry/sad.

Everybody likes to be emo.

i wasnt in a bad mood/sad/angry/down/depressed or *GASP* emo-ing.

the only truth there was that i'm really burning a fever and throat inflammation.

today i can proudly say that i'm adding phlegm to the list.



yellowish green

whichever way you like it.


is zebra a black animal with white stripes or a white animal with black stripes?

Yesterday and Today.

Spent the whole day burning away with a fever

i can even reach 38deg plus.

and i feel so lonely

i cant talk to anybody

what the f**K?


that was so emo

i love a good joke once in a while

hope everyvody enjoyed this one.


Thursday, June 12, 2008

yesterday after work went to holland V for dinner with evon.

we went italian and shared two dishes.
lasagne and magherita

one of the spice they used on the magherita really made me feel very sick today.

i cant get the taste out of my mouth.


desert was a banana split.

and we took this nice long stroll back to buona vista mrt to take a cab home.


but today's an entirely different thing.

i can feel my tonsils swelling and a fever burning up.


Sunday, June 8, 2008

Hey there, Gorgeous...

I think i'm DRUNK..

Therefore i've stopped talking to everyone..
Yesterday i forgot to bring my camera even though the FIRST THING i did when i woke up yesterday is to charge the battery.

and because yesterday julia seem to be early for everything, it kinda threw all my plans off the track.

she told me it's too early to meet at 8.30am, so we arranged for 9.30am.

but she arrived at 9.16am and so i had to rush all the way. without any protective gears.
but probably the first i rollerbladed all the way to the shopping centre. was really in a rush.

Ms Julia fell a few times yesterday and so my biggest regret is forgetting to bring my camera. it would have been great to show the whole world how unglam it can be to fall while rollerblading.

and then it poured.

we went home to shower and change.

we agreed to meet at PS at 2.40pm.

she called at 2.26pm and asked where i was.

yesterday, she was early for everything.

and the "Kungfu Panda" show was all sold out for the afternoon.

so we stoned around till 7pm before the Barney show started.

Yeah, Barney. the purple and *cough*GAY dinosaur. and why is one of th characters called "BJ"? did the producers know it actually stands for something more sinister for kids to learn?

the stoning period before the Barney was spent eating around.

dont understand how someone can eat so much.

my goodness.

Chippy's British Takeaway
Donut Factory
Ya Kun

but ok, i agree the chow was great.

so watched "Kungfu Panda" after the Barney show.
Hilarious movie.


and i got the tickets for the MagicBox performance at Esplanade on 20July.



"She smiled at me and I smiled at her and all I could do was wonder how I'd ever fallen in love with a girl like Jamie Sullivan."

actually life's a little boring these few days.

last sunday's cycling ended with me falling a lot of times. i dont know. havent cycled on my bike for like almost 3weeks so i guess i've forgotten how to handle my bike?

pretty scary too.

i was at toa payoh along the church. there was this guy in front of me and said, "excuse me"
he was real polite about it and stepped out of the way.

but the problem is, he's holding his umbrella diagonally. and both us didnt realise one end of it poked into my bike's front wheel.

it's a guaranteed comical moment.

but i fell off my bike and at that exact moment, a bus was zooming towards me.

that guy panicked and tried to pull me up the curb.

i was already on my way up.

but because he tried to help me, i tripped and almost fell onto the road again.

he was full of apologies, so what am i to do?

just shrug it off, i guess.


one of my previous post had me talking about preparing for an emotional roller-coater ride.

or something along that line.

well, jeez..

i've paid the tickets for the roller-coaster.

the ride is gonna end soon. 3rd week of next month actually.

then i'll know whether i'm gonna be miserable and puke my stomach inside-out


i'm gonna be enjoying the experience and go for another few more rounds.

but till then


these few days had been sleeping late.

was trying out the few FREE anti-virus programs in the market.

trying avast! now.

maybe in like a month or two i'll try AVG??

and just what is this anti-root kit??

and how do i remove the norton anti-virus program originally installed in my laptop?

i cant seem to find the uninstall button

"To exit, press any key.
To cancel operation, press any other key."


spent $248 buying the microsoft office program.

speaking of spending money.

i havent touched my rollerblades for like at least a month.

and to think i spent nearly $500 on it.

not sure if i'll still remember to blade.


real busy weekend ahead for me.

gonna spend like almost the whole saturday with Julia.

breakfast with seamus on sunday.

i guess that leaves me half a sunday to figure out my plans for next week.

but i've already got something in mind. the big V-plan.


"We'll see how it goes."
"We'll see what goes where?"
"I'l let you know again."

sometimes i just cant resist a little lame joke here and there


CJC concert on 18 july.

that's gonna be a big V-plan too.

i was asking angela(my ex-teacher) about the concert and she was kinda rather chirpy and on the positive side.

seemed rather foreign to me.

she has always struck me as the stressed-out teacher.

so in the end, i turned out to be stressed out one.

(because i'm absolutely confused by her positive-ness)


i cant wait to start school, to quit my job.

i dont really hate my job or my boss.

just two things:
1. when my boss and his wife fight, they dont talk to me. so they give me separate instructions and i cant make sense who's in charge. in the end, i'm the one who gets screwed.
2. the suppliers. they are probably like the dumbest people alive. my goodness.

i havent receive my matriculation package

what's NTU waiting for?


because of my work schedule which almost turned my life upside-down, i wasnt able to go jogging these two weeks.

hope my cardio standard is still there.

i promise to start jogging again on friday.
