After that, well, you know.. my flight's already booked for the 27th.

Speaking of English, I realised, that I need depth, I need depth in perspective, depth in writing and I just can't find that depth. And that depth separates the A from the Bs and Cs. Sigh..

Feeling rather pressured now, plus a little fatigue. Oh and, photo day was yesterday, and took a few photos before my camera died. I think I'll post it up sometime later.

For now, papers, papers and more papers..

Update -26th May - So many photos~ finally reached 1GB of photos in my comp. Wooohoo! One week of rest from today, got.. to.. study!

Update - 31st May - Finally! After 3 weeks, the internet finally works fine again. The final few weeks of school suddenly seem so interesting and fun, I'm beginning to wonder.. why why why didn't I do all of this last year? Sigh, I love my friends. =)

Update - 6th June - Ok, seems like the internet is screwing around, looks like I'll never get to use my MSN in the near future. One a bright note, I'd really like to congratulate myself, for being hardworking! Ahh, keep up the 10-hour study sessions. I think, it's my first time, ever since I was a little boy, that I studied so goddamn hard! The core of the exams is this week, let's do it! Wahahaha, boy, I just can't wait to get back home. There's just so many things to do!! and especially.. foood.. fooooood.. and the bright sunny days.. and the warm breeze.. and the best of all, rain, thunder and lightning. I've never heard thunder for a straight six months! Oh well, back to M1 today.. let me see.. 12 papers by tonight, that gives me around 6 hours to do 96 mechanics questions. GoGoGo!!

Update - 7th June - Looks like I only managed to do 3 papers. Exam was very straightforward.. I just don't know what to say about it. Spent 30 minutes checking the paper.. and right now I'm pretty sure I can get near full marks on that paper. Oooh this feels good wahahahaha. Internet's rather intermitten at the moment, so it kinda sucks to go online. Heard about the PM getting married this weekend. Congratulations Pak Lah! .. also.. bird flu in Sg Buloh! Ugh, it's time to switch to pork and beef, but what I worry most is human infection.. eee sounds like an epidemic to me!! Ok, 4 papers tomorrow, 1 hour in the morning and 3 hours in the afternoon.. I don't think I have any problem doing Physics for now.. need to drill economics into my brain. Drill drill drill..

Update - 8th June - Woohoo! Finished my econs paper at 4.55pm. Finally.. finally it's gone! I've never been this stressed before in my life, it might seem little, around 7 pages of summarised notes, but cramming it in was so difficult. Why wasn't I born with brains, or with looks? Wahahaha, life'll be so easy then. Oh well, I'm going off to town tomorrow and probably I might cook in the evening as well. Goodie! Relax 1 day then got to prepare for Physics 4. Thank god Chemistry is one of the last papers. Hahaha.

Of Mudslinging and Dirty Politics

The recent by-elections of Ijok and Machap have come and gone, and rather insignificant things have happened, and we have seen how sweet-talkers go about charming people, and how many gifts in all sorts of forms were given away to tempt voters. I guess it's the norm everywhere though, but with the aid of the media and the way the main party capitalises on issues that jeopardise the opposition's campaign, it's really sickening to see what happened in these two by-elections. Maybe... it's just natural. But.. what really really pisses me off are this bunch of people (i'll leave harsh words out for now) doing nothing in the Lower House except bickering around and suggesting crap! (Adopt-A-Rempit was by far the most funny one that I've ever heard)

For example, take a look at today's article in The Star.

There is no need (for The Star to report this) for Barisan Nasional to be too alarmed by some Chinese votes going to the opposition during the recent Ijok by-election. Umno deputy president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said this should not be taken out of proportion and made into a big issue (in fact, mister, you made it into a big one by telling it to the press). “Let us not forget the fact that the majority of the Chinese still support Barisan,” Najib, who is...
What? Obvious waste of space in the newspaper. Ah, this is so boring. Where's the political awareness people?! I don't believe that my fellow rakyat of my beloved country are that easy to fall for all of this.

Singapore : My Thoughts Part I

This post might contain references that are deemed hurtful or insulting to certain parties. Please please take note because it's my honest opinion, typed spontaneously.

Singapore, I haven't been to that place for very long. It's this little island nation of 2m+ people. I used to remember the joke that if 28m Malaysians peed on Singapore, it'd sink. It's still a bit funny, come to think of it. The number of times I've been to Singapore, guess what, is so finite. If i recall it, it's 5 times.

The first time was when I was really small, my father used to study in Singapore for Secondary school, so he had lots of friends there and I first went to Singapore at time to visit my dad's old friends. To be honest, I really really like Singapore. It's so tranquil there, well at least in Tampines it is. I think that's the place I'm most familiar about. Tampines. I still remember the HDB flats that I used to go to, really quiet fronts, one thing unique about Singapore is, that it has lots of apartments. It looks nice as well, since KL doesn't have much condominiums and it's really really fun running around the pillars at ground floor with all the hawker stalls nearby. Think of it, where else would you get sundry shops, hawker stalls and everything else at the ground floor of your apartment? (maybe that was 10 years ago, I'm so old..)

It's so faint, the memory, but I remember taking the lift, that stopped on alternative floors. Haha, I still remember, when I was a small kid I read things out loud. Like when I saw a signboard I'd read out it's details like ,"Ma! Jo..hor Ba..lu.. 2 .. 0... 0 KM!" So I remember, I was really confused with the numbers. How come no number 1 and 3? So I kept asking my parents about this.

Why I remember Tampines is because the impression of it left an imprint on me, that I can remember until now, while I can still forget everywhere else that I visit like Suntec and those places nearby which I don't even recall the name. Ahhh, pleasant place. Roads were so narrow, Gardens had nice decorative trees, people were generally rich, it felt so happy to be there.

Then I can vaguely remember the next few times that I've been to Singapore. I still remember when I was around.. bah, 10-13 years old, we drove down to Singapore again, and it was more touristy this time. This was the time when I got the map of Singapore imprinted into my head, because I was the little navigator who read all the road maps! Hahaha, I remember driving to the Night Safari was such a nuisance, because of the number of highways and intersections that we have to change.

I must admit though, I don't know much about Singapore albeit it's political side. I've read about places like the MacRitchie Reservoir and stuff, but I've never been there, never been up the whatever hill for a jog, never been exploring Bugis for it's little places, never been in Orchard Rd before because of the toll. =P

It's this weird feeling of registering something new i think. I keep remembering the scenes when I first arrive at the Tuas Checkpoint, then going on past Tuas, past Jurong, via the Ayer Keroh Expressway, etc. Speaking of which, why do they call it an expressway? Cars drive on a freakin' speed of 70? km/h! To top it up, all the cars are moving on the same speed! It's as if nothing is moving 'cept the scenery.

What really turns me off is the state that JB is in compared to the modernity (is there even such a word?) of Singapore. Wa so different, makes me feel rather bad too, that JB is so comparatively unbuilt. No offense really, but I wish KL was put beside Singapore, then both of the cities can really really compete. Hahaha.

2nd Part : on Singaporeans, attitudes, food, language, politics, everything else Singapore. =D

New Look!

I gave my blog a fresh new look, and a new colour at that too! I love brownnnn.. or whatever colour that gives a rather authentic wooden look, like furniture, and it's comforting to the eyes too!
