the slow Journey...: May 2008

Sounds like a promotional tagline huh.

The Sian factor of doing the same couple of mundane stuff over and over again at office took a Nose-dive a couple of weeks ago. Just when the NTU interns came in. yea, take note NTU not SMU, even though they came in around the same time.

Somehow the NTU ppl are a total ONE EIGHTY from that of the SMU guys. Just dont think i can really click with em. Ok maybe its cos I didnt really interact with the SMU ppl.
Anyway the Famine camp pre training proved this point further, the SMU ppl in my group are like......... hey! every morning you get to see a deer outside the tent! Isnt that cool?! As she proceeded to share more on her councillor adventures and SMU life plus lots of other stuff which the few of us cant seem to find smth to reply and continue the conversation.

Goodbye to the not so interesting 1hr lunches, occasional walking around to chat with Sijiao, Jasmine or Norma. Now its a big HELLO to near 2hr lunches and frequent exchanges between my desk, the Treehugger at the Fishtank and the Dragonboater who supposedly hates animals but likes lizards..... at the other side of the room. Thats on top of the previous talking cock haunts...

Plus a few interesting/ memorable happenings/quotes.
A classic one:
Ms DB: Its like who the hell knows what Leather is in Chinese la!
Me: Err 皮 lor..
.....followed by a short silence and a burst of laughter from the rest....

Disclaimer: To the Treehugger and Ms DB and esp Ms DB if they are reading this. The above entry is in due fun and all the name calling, etc are of course just for fun and i SINCERELY do NOT mean it..........yeap

Where do hamsters live in the wild?

Indiana Jones! Just go in watch it and expect some old school adventurous fun and it sure wouldnt disapppoint. Doesn't really have the Oh...... revelation scenes in this show like in National treasure but overall its better! Just don't expect a thinker thats all.

Went to the part of boat quay just opposite ocbc to catch the opening performance for the singapore arts fest with the ex-cher, jel and jp. Didnt even know its called Water-fools til after reading jelvin's blog entry on it..... oh well I'd wager 80 percent of the ppl there dont't really know whats going on except to go WAAA when the cue to do so came in the form of colourful pyrotechnic/fireworks lighting up the dreamy boat quay area.

Couldnt see much cos we were behind the crowd, so we pretty much made up that 80 percent.

heh. Quite a number of ang mohs too, TALL ang mohs who like to stand in front and block us not so tall asians. should just stand behind mah since they are so tall, wouldnt make much of a diff for them anyway

Not a very good pic.... but yea, the best that i took....

Oh and where do hamsters live in the wild???? before we came along and domesticated them??? hmmmmm

Sad video tribute to the disaster in China

Root 3

=Square Root Of 3=
I’m sure that I will always be

-Square root of 3-

A lonely number like root three

The three is all that’s good and right,

Why must my three keep out of sight

Beneath the vicious square root sign,

I wish instead I were a nine

For nine could thwart this evil trick,

with just some quick arithmetic

I know I’ll never see the sun, as 1.7321

Such is my reality, a sad irrationality

When hark! What is this I see,

Another square root of a three

As quietly co-waltzing by,

Together now we multiply

To form a number we prefer,

Rejoicing as an integer

We break free from our mortal bonds

With the wave of magic wands

Our square root signs become unglued

Your love for me has been renewed

One last farewell... ...


Yes today i forever bid farewell to a friend that stuck with me for the past 2 years plus. Though its a short time when placed in perspective, but it was a memorable 2 years. through my boring moments, and times in the army camp. Amidst all these times i found companionship, was brought a little silver glimmer of recluse to my life at that time, a momentary escape into a pocket space somewhere in my mind that is disjointed from all thats bad of this world.

However everything comes to an end, and this end I've foreseen.

Bbye Nn. All cold and near dead. Kinda weird name, but oh well.

Hi to N n 2.!

Ok, felt a bit bored just now and lazy to blog fully about tioman trip. But anyway here are some pics!
First day seashell haul

2nd Evening at TiomanAnd yea thats me in the middle with that strange fisherman's hat. got it for only about 4 dollars there

Think this was taken while we were on our snorkelling trip, one of the many beautiful isles there

-All good things come to an end.....

Would really hope to go back there again some time in the future, just a few days of pure relaxation with nothing much to worry about.
Just brings a smile to my face :)

The want that can't be sated

Annnnnd.... thats referring to my sudden urge to blog about my tioman trip and a few thoughts zipping about my mind. Tardy but, oh well.

Think i shall leave it til tmr after tuition, before i get any sicker than now due to the lack of rest and an abundance of work.

My gift of foresight tells me that i ill be staying back in office plenty next week, in the dilapidated lil repository rummaging through dusty old files of filthy rich singaporeans/PRs living in fancy homes here.

Thats if the current condition doesnt become a full blown downtime for my body
