A belated post for 2T16 ...

Sorry for the late late post ... I did not manage to find time to post as right after the graduation , I rushed to HQ for meeting, then dinner with my Uni frens till late late, and on next morning, left to clean up my new place early early. And Sun, which is today, there was some traditional ceremony of exchanging gifts between Malcolm and my family. So that's why for the late post .... haiz.

I will definitely miss the times I've spend with the class of 2T16. One reason could be that this is my very first HOME CLASS, but more importantly, because of everyone who had given me much treasured memories in these 2 years.

It does not really matter that 2T16 is not the best home class of CJC 2003/2004. Neither does it matter that it is quite fragmented in its own ways. And I do not forget some of the "not-so-rosy" side of the picture, like how I remember my first setback with Poornima on the first day of school when she refuses to tell me her handphone no on the personal particulars form, how Ji-Hoon got caught by Bro. Paul for his big permed hairstyle, when the class went into this "anti-Pang" movement with the carplate-like card that says something about someone's physical defect quite bluntly. I will also not forget how PW caused so much "fun" for Ji-Hoon when he candidly asked about my "vital statistics", and how Abel-Poornima-Wailing-Matt group had so much difficultly and arguments in coming out with the first draft of the PW proposal. Then came the Rena "fall sick" period when she was needing much medical leave that leaves me wondering if I should also grant Ji-Hoon, MunTuck or Ervin early leave when they also complain of headaches. Will never forget how Eugene always imagine himself "pseudo" machine-gunning down pple arnd him and all the "rubbish" and "sense" he likes to blurt out. And also much pain when Swee Zhi was feeling so stressed up and finally decided to leave college a month before graduation. I also missed the times when Yin Wai, David and Benjo was arnd when they kinda gelled the class together. I do sometimes agree with Stanley that our class would perhaps function more like a unit if they were still sticking arnd. Jian Hao's remoteness and Henky's easy-goingness. Wai Ling's blurness, Rena's optimism, Poornima's determination, Eugene's maturity, Matthew's helpfulness, Abel's outrightness, and Ervin's overwhelming self-confidence will always remain with me.

The journey has been an enriching one for me. And I thank each of you in making an impact in my life. I share my pain and joy with you these two years, and I hope that I have shared some of yours too. Time has come for us to bid farewell and we can only reminiscence the good times. And I strongly feel that we need not be the best home class to share strong bonds. Goodbye and farewell, my friend, and I hope that we do meet again! All the best!

This morning, just like last wednesday, I set my alarm clock to wake me up at 4.30am, so that I can do my work. I am researching the course materials for the website dev. lesson, and it is really very effective in the wee hours of the morning.

Made myself a cuppa of hot milo, and started work ... wow, managed to acheive quite a considerable amount of work done within this short short 1 plus hour. Hmm... very effective. Anyway, recently, I keep waking up in the middle of the nite, like at 3+ am. It is quite frustrating if I try to force myself to sleep and yet still quite well awake, so it is more productive to wake up earlier to work. Bad news I guess is that these weird waking hours is causing me breakouts! And for someone who needs to look her best in 18 days is not too good a thing! I think I should skip the milo tomorrow morning.

Sometimes, I really wonder why we do the same things day-in-day-out, and it all becomes all too boring! I am super bored the whole of today. Wanted to do work but did not get any done. Feel so lousy today.

Haiz. Dun feel like typing tonite! Byez.

Today is quite a "mixed" day. Firstly I am quite sick and I took MC to stay at home to rest, but in the end I din really rested cos' I was working through my teaching materials for Dreamweaver + PHP + MySQL. I think I have worked straight 14 hrs with 2-one hr lunch and dinner break. And I feel kinda of tired now. Read my pals' blogs and kinda have some things to think about.

It happens to me too, to be unable to forgive and forget. And recently, I also got quite pissed with someone (not my family, not my friend either) and everytime I have no choice but to talk to him (over some unavoidable issues) I find that I am burning inside! Cos' I still feel the anger towards this person and I cannot bring myself to feel 'normal'! I tend to speak in a more 'hostile' or 'cold' way, and speak lesser too. My eyes also seemed to avoid this person's eyes just as to 'keep a distance'. I seldom feel this way. But I know certainly that it is torturing myself. And to think that this person dun even realised his mistake/want to apologise for his word, I think I am torturing myself for nothing! Sometimes, I just feel quite poisoned by those 'hate' feelings, but I dun noe how to deal with it / him now that I started the 'hostile' stance. Haiz. It is such a horrible experience!

Cough Cough Cough

Wah, the stupid sore throat is back again, with a terrible cough some-more. Haiz ... I've got so much to do today that I dun noe where to start :( Just missed the times that I can dun need to do any admin work and just do programming ... hahaz. But anyway, what needs to be done will have to be done.

Yesterday nite, I made some home-made miso soup with clams and served it with some japanese soba noodles. Wah... super delicious and I finish every drop of it. My parents enjoy every bit of it. But the bad news is that my mom complained of a stomach upset this morning and needs to eat some painkiller to stop the pain... I wonder if it is my soup!?! But I actually drank from the same pot and I am ok leh. Maybe it could be other food she took. I am trying to finish what I need to do soon and go home and see mama. Poor mummy!

Happy B-day Lorraine

Haha ... Today I am older by one year! Well, when I was young, I always wanted to grow up. Mom was so protective and sometimes restrictive and I was never allowed to go "downstairs" alone, or to take the lift alone, or to go out / to friend's house alone ... my mom will always ensure that she or my father escort me to wherever I go. And now that I am 26, she is still like that! I know you will not believe your ears (or eyes rather??) but I still dun leave the house alone in the mornings and once I reach home from work, I dun go "downstairs" to buy stuff without her or my dad or my husband following. So ... "poor" Malcolm also have to adapt to how my family works. In fact, I think I have a stricter curfew than most of my students. I remembered Chinese New Year last year, when I went out with my class to Chinatown for some new year sightseeing and shopping, I was the one who needs to go home first! Haha... but I guess it is quite a natural part of me that I got used to.

Oh... I am going out with my mom to pig out again (poornima, dun "kill" me, I will eat, but will try to control lah) and I think she is calling me soon :)

Feeling Lousy...

"Wah lau" is the word! or is that a phrase or slang? or simply lousy language? Well, dun care lah ... anyway this blogger is kinda driving me mad. Everytime I edit the profile, and try to submit the edits, it will just direct me to a bogus (or "bongus" as I normally pronounce it) page! I tried it at school laptop, home pc and still cannot!

Well, finally, it was Ji Hoon who was my "saviour", his recommendation of "Mozilla FireFox" solves all problems and frustrations. And though I finally get to post at ease, I am not feeling any better as my sore throat worsens and I feel kinda of feverish ... I wonder if it was the Matthew virus.

Sore throat

Wah, I just need to confess my evil-doings over the weekend that just passed. I was a true-glutton, eating every single thing that I *know* I shudn't be eating! I have two 8/9-course dinner over Friday and Sat, and Sun wasn't any better, I ate enuff carbo to last me for a week! Really feel like a fat pig this morning, with a bloated tummy due to too much carbo in last nite's dinner.

Sob sob, i think I am getting sore throat, and it is very painful to swallow.
