i cannot do cartwheels

But apparently i can do the rest of the jumps and stunts. I just have to get used to the 1, 2, down, up timing and catching girls falling out from the sky without subconsciously siam-ing.


Oh! I forgot to mention that i was at cheerleading training camp over the course of Friday and Saturday?

I am now aching in places i never thought i had muscles.

But it's fun fun fun! Never expected myself to be able to do such stuff, but it seems like i an catching up pretty quickly. One of the more senior guys even commented that i should join dance.

Ha! He must be kidding! Me + dance is a combi i'd never have thought up! I always thought i had 2 left feet. Apparently not quite.

of boxes of k, real life enchanted princesses and just 21 in years

The supposedly OG outing yielded not so good an attendance, but we had fun anyway!

Dragged myself out of bed to meet huimin and bacca for some klunch. We were all as late as each other so it was all good. I even alighted at the wrong stop!

Oh, i filmed an incriminating video of us singing, dancing and being generally retarded to Rihanna's Umbrella ella ella eh eh eh. I was contemplating on uploading it on youtube but i really was the most retarded of them all, so maybe another time then!

Then it was off to get our selves enchanted! Harrison, evon and justin joined us and we trooped into the cinema. Huimin kept kping saying "我是不看这重戏的 lor"...

...i was sitting beside her and she laughed damn loud everytime there was something to laugh about.

Anyway, no pictures for this segment so i shall put up some clips of the movie. The clips are of them singing. If you've not caught the show, please do! Ignore the next 3 boxes then.

This show is so much more worth watching than a certain golden direction pointer thing.

The lead actress, Amy Adams, is apparently quite old. Actually, i could make out eyebags under the foundation. I bet they positively caked it on her.

After the movie, harri and huimin left and the remaining 4 of us nuahed around (i bought socks!), had dinner at Sakura (Far East one, not the one at Safra) and went over to Paragon to find ubin-cycling-gang, clara, tor yuan and ambrose for dessert.

Let the mini celebration for justin start!

Went to Bakerzin and bacca and evon secretly ordered a slice of cheesecake with a candle while justin and i were in the queue. We had to wait really long for a seven seater but in the end we took a 4 seater and added seats.

Played around with macro and landscape mode with my more-than-willing models.

The service was really quite terrible. They didn't lay the cutleries when the slice came, only providing one fork among the 7 of us. Not like we didn't order anything else.

That and other things made me quite unhappy and i put on my indignant face and went to the counter, asking icily, "Excuse me, can we have some cutlertries please?"

I walked back and realisation hit me. I said CUTLERTRIES. What the heck is cutlertries?!?! I'm like asking for toiletries!

Well, they came anyway, but i had to distribute them myself cos the waiter just plonked a pile of serviettes and forks in front of me. Freak shit la. Live and let live.

After clara bit the strawberry into half, she told justin that he had to do a forfeit because it was his birthday. She then proceeded to mix all the melted ice creams into a glass and plonked the half-strawberry into it. I have no idea how she can bite till it looks so gross. Got tendrils somemore.

After dessert we went out of Paragon and literally sat at the steps.

But we whored. Camwhored.

Ah, it was a fun night.

i am confused but damn the increased taxi fares

"As part of responding to customer feedback that taxis are hard to come by and the surcharges are confusing, ComfortDelgro taxi company added MORE surcharges effective Monday, 17 December 2007.

For fun and laughter, here is a summary of the review:

City Area Surcharge: up from $1 to $3, effective 5pm and midnight from Mondays to Saturdays.

Late Night Surcharge: up from the staggered 10% to 50% current one, to the flat 50% extra for rides between 12 midnight to 5.59am daily.

The fun part is, this 50% more at midnight deal was the original plan before going staggered. Neither solved the problem of disappearing cabs at 11pm to 11.59pm.

And if you think the silly $3 City Area surcharge is going to solve things, good luck to you. And also, what about the disappearing cabs OUTSIDE the CBD?

Peak Period Surcharge: up from the $2 flat fee now in effect between 7am and 9.30am on weekdays and 5pm to 8pm from Mondays to Saturdays, to 35% of the metered fare.

And the company says, a detailed breakdown of this extra "premium fare" will be shown on each receipt "to ensure transparency".

Why is it called a premium fare? Does the cab become a first-class cabin at those surcharge hours? Does the driver speak nicer to you? If anything, the surcharges are not premium fares, but just punishment fares.

Flag down fare: up by 30 cents from $2.50 to $2.80 for the first kilometre.

Distance fare: up from 10-cent jumps to 20-cent jumps.

Waiting time: up from 10 cents per 25 seconds to 20 cents per 45 seconds.

Only the prime time booking fee is going down from $4 to $3.50.

So if you call for a cab from the city, at 8pm on a Friday night, you are going to pay $10.30 even before the cab moves off ($3 City Area surcharge, $2.80 flag down, $3.50 call charge, $1 or 35% of metered fare for Peak Period surcharge).

If you happen to be in the city on a weekday, only 8.5 hours of your day is surcharge-less.

Between 5pm to the next morning from Monday to Saturday, you only have a four hour window, 8.01pm to 11.59pm, where you don't get charged an extra % of your metered fare."

what is our national treasure?

Unless you don't speak English, i'm sure you know of the box office hit, National Treasure! But do you know that National Treasure 2 is coming soon!?

It's called National Treasure, Book of Secrets.. Wooo... Like Book of Shadows, but more secretive!

Check out the trailer HERE.

Anyway, i was wondering if we actually have a National treasure of our own and the first thing that came to mind was the Merlion.

You know, after taking Changing Landscapes of Singapore and learning about National symbols and stuff, i kinda have a second take on the Merlion.

At first, all i thought was that it looked funny. Got mermaid, merman then now merlion!

But apparently, the merlion was coined by this person that took part in the STB's competition to create a logo/mascot for Singapore. The man won because the merlion incorporates myth and reality. The lion head symbolised the myth of Sang Nila Utama and how he claimed to have seen the majestic beast when he came to our island, and the fish tail stood for the origins of Singapore as a fishing village.

Bet some of you didn't know that!

Ok i know this is a cliche National treasure, but what else is more significant than that?

Maybe Xiaxue, blogger queen extraordinaire, can be our National treasure instead. She did pave the way of blogging, sorta.

Maybe our enterprising STB can erect a monolithic statue of her squirting water out of her mouth one day.

my eyebags trebled after exams

Zouk with the Chachas was fun! Drank warm vodka+sprite in hall and some of us got drunk even before reaching Zouk! Even more fun when i met Clara and Rachel and the whole of Temasek Hall. Danced with a girl so drunk that her voice was like she was living in a world where humans breathe helium.

Stayed over ad played with Daren's Nintendo Wii in NTU Hall 16. If tennis and bowling were so easy in real life, i'd have played it everyday!

In the night i met up with KW, ZC and his kiddy friends for The Golden Compass. The show was ridiculous. Someone said it was a live version of Pokemon and i tend to agree. That being said, the ending was terrible. It was all "Oh for the next sequels we'll be doing this, this and that. Come watch!"

After that ZC brought me and KW to a karaoke pub. I got claps for singing A*mei's 记得.

I concussed and went to school for the first The West Wing meeting where i found out i was playing a lowly Monk who had no lines oh dear god.

Met Shu for dinner and the gala premier (bacca played me out). Saw Zoe Tay and fam, Edmund Chen and fam, Suzanne Jung, Pan 00 and fam and whoever la. Oh Glenn Ong played host. Didn't bother taking photos despite having a 6 megapix cam tucked securely in my bag. I didn't want to upset those people frantically whipping out their sad lil camera phones.

Bacca and Clara came alooking for me but Clara left to settle some matters of the heart and left bacca with me to wait for her. In the end she took a lifetime and i took NR2 home.

Slept till kingdom come and went out for dinner with fam plus some relatives.

DROVE HOME from Selegie tau huay. My mom kept saying she was very scared and my brothers kept saying they didn't dare sleep.

Off to Malacca we went. Once we crossed the causeway, i took over the wheel. 135km/h was the fastest i hit, averaging 110km/h.

My mom still says she's very scared and now she says she cannot sleep. Instead, she sat right smack in the middle of the rearview mirror, effectively blocking half of it. Got yelled at by my dad once i don't remember what.

They still won't let me drive out myself.

I don't wanna think about how i'm gonna get screwed by EL1101E's negative marking! I just wanna partaaaay!

Just got a haircut. My hairstylist says my sides aren't long enough to do the bob thing that she wants to do, but she gave me a short back anyway! Now i look like a cross between a boy and a girl! A butch!

Plus if i wear the scarf that i just bought from Revoltage (i just love buying stuff from there cos they give free punk/emo badges), i'm gonna look like 少年不男不女。

My schedule for the week:

: Mambo with Chachas (hope the rain stops)!
Thurs: Recuperate!
Fri: Going back to school for West Wing meeting at 5pm, then Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium (i got free tickets!) with Rebacca, then (maybe) meeting the orientation people.
Sat: Golden Compass with KW and ZC (TBC)
Sun: Driving down to Malacca with parents! I'm driving!

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.
