my chinese is terrible enough...

... and yet i have to handle old parents who can only speak chinese, but understands terms like "logistic" and "fax".

That's not the worse thing.

I have to handle the ching chong students from freaking CHINA!

so apt this picture since my company is from Taiwan.

I must make it clear that i'm in no way prejudiced against China people, it's just that my Chinese capabilities are seriously limited. If you know me, you'll know.

The very first time i encountered a China student, i had so much trouble just translating the sentence, "You have to go to the website and follow the instructions".

In the end, i told her, "Ni yao qu wang lu na bian geng zhe instructions."

She replied with a, "Er... Wo bu zhi dao ni zhai shuo shen me", in that cheena China slang.


I also want to tell her that i cannot understand her!

Eh, don't get me wrong, i'm not ashamed of my Chinese heritage. It's been a month since i ORDed and until now, i was adamnant on leaving my hair black and undyed, as a weak attempt against conformity.

That's until now.

I'm having mixed feelings about this Supercuts voucher that i've received via Singtel for my birthday.

It has a 40% off on ALL CHEMICAL SERVICES, which basically only means dye hair to me la. Why would i wanna rebond or perm?

So should i rejoice and go ahead to utilise the voucher (i really want blonde streaks, brown is so bleurgh), or grit my teeth and stand firm to my resolution of not treating my hair as a canvas and not conform to the image of an FASS student?

Speaking of that, i've still not brought up the determination (and courage) to pierce my ears. I need someone to drag me there!


And anyone wanna shamelessly offer themselves up as my "guest" to bring to the 1 for 1 haircut thing?

Interested applicants pls apply straight to me before the end of the week thanks!

I wanna cut hair before my party!

On a totally irrelevant note, i've been pretty much bored in the office and i'm hooked on!

Particularly Frost Bite and Sling.

Seriously they're great time fillers for when there are no calls, and sometimes i even continue playing when i'm on the phone, since the questions are so generic that i can just answer without thinking.

So all those bored in the office or anywhere else, go play to your hearts content!

I don't want you to think of me as an eavesdropper so I'll just say that I'm listening to music instead of my neighbour's maid flirting with my other neighbour's driver.


I like it when people think of me as an intellectual so I will list a bunch of intellectual-sounding books here, even those I don't plan to read.


Since I can't list my porn collection here, I'll just leave it this way until I can force myself to watch non-pornographic stuff, which may or may not happen.
