Randomly:

1. Shao Chong dismantled a lighter because he was bored and has abundant access to smokers. =(

2. Kenny is surprised that I don't get Assasin's Creed. Quote: 'You're bored? Already? How can you be bored?'

3. Kimberly is entirely unsure whether my brother is handsome. She steals his sandals. She's three.

4. The twins have way too much luck with CNY gambling. The beginner's luck should have worn out years ago. I beat them at gin rumy though! =)

5. Kareen is in London. She gets angpow in pounds, not ringgit. LSE is very city. I want to go to London. I miss KLIA.

6. Sher is berhappening. I hear rumours she's getting a diamond ring. Haha. Someone owes me a diamond ring, don't they?

7. I want to go shopping. I feel like spending money. Who wants to spend money with me?

8. Dinner tonight with the huge huge family! I heart. =D

A myriad of personal messages:

Ju Vern: Federer! =)

Gene Wern: Roddick...

Eugene: Tsonga =(

Miss Liew: Vamos Rafa!

Kenn Wei: Kenn Wei!

For those not in the know, most of the above names are top-ranking tennis players.

I was sitting in a car just yesterday, marvelling over the ingenuity of 'Happy Niu Year' when my entire family informed me that the phrase was 'all over the television' and the person who sent it was not, indeed, that smart.

Regardless -

Happy Chinese Niu Year, everyone!

I am off for a few days of losing money to little kids who have inordinate amounts of luck. Hopefully there will be more of that biscuit thing I finished last year. There'll be lots of people! I am excited.

I am wearing new (red) clothes! Also I have not washed nor cut my hair. I don't generally sweep. So.. 2009 should be okay, right? Am I missing out on some tradition or another?

Have a great day. =)

I attempted to draw my face today. I say 'attempted' because asking me to draw any kind of face is pushing your luck. Asking me to actually make that face resemble mine is just laughable.

I
wish I could draw well. I consider drawing a talent, not something to be learnt, rather like singing and sports. I suspect I will be wishing I can draw for a very long time. People say you can learn to draw, but aren't these people the very ones who produced artistic scribbles from the first time they picked up a pencil?

I
envy people who can draw because it's another way of expressing yourself, only without words. It's funny, because I love putting words together. But I would love to be able to express myself without words, with pictures which actually mean something other than random doodles and the occasional flower. Sometimes I think art is a clearer form of communication – universal in a way language can never be. Just as words can be subtle and layered, so can art. And if you're lucky, lines, shapes and colours merge to take your breath away.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...
by Elizabeth Barett Browning

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee
purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, --- I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! --- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after deat
h.

This is a poem I studied for Literature in English, and the only one I commited to memory. Beautiful.

(Gene's class is going to dissect frogs under Pn. Adeline next week. He named their - very large - frog Trevor. He will probably laugh as they cut it up. Not fair! We didn't dissect anything.)

If Jason can cheat his way through English tests I can cheat my way through English journals.

So. It is 4.38 pm and I am sitting on the bed eating cookie lumps in ice cream, reading something comfortably fictional and Facebook-ing. Because college is tiring and what else is there to do but sit on the bed and eat ice cream to destress?

Today was the second day of life as a SAM student in Taylor's. However I shall refrain from commenting until I am sure nothing here will get me into trouble somewhere down the (metaphorical) road. If you want to message me and chat though... =)

Haha no lah I'm not suffering! Spotting more and more people around campus and trying really hard to link names and faces because I am. so. bad. at. faces. Damn. Also, my name is hard to remember. It is so true that chinese names just... escape you, while english names stay in your head! Not fair.

What did I do today?

1. Couldn't sleep again! My brain is too used to staying active till 4 in the morning. Blah don't tell anyone responsible I said that. I had to get up at 5-ish. Just when I want to sleep. =( At least the stars were shining though!

2. Get names and phone numbers and emails from classmates. Good idea that someone had and we all started doing. We class people all hung out at the Asian Cafe because of this really cool guy who stood up and said Hey. Why don't we get to know each other? =)

3. EH WE SAW NADIAH! who's doing SAM and will finish when we do! That is so cool. Also saw Welia! who's doing ADP and will go off to America. Met up with Eric, whose name I saw on the first day and was confused about. his classmate's name is Yam. right. Didn't see Syn Dee, even though she was around =(

4. Got my lab coat and goggles. Pictures when I get around to it. Goggles look good. =P Unfortunately cannot be used for swimming. Lab coat! Haha lab coat! We have practical exams in SAM - where you conduct experiments then plan your own! Nice. Sounds exciting.

5. Wander around looking for my student ID. Still don't have it. Ah well. At least don't have to wear a tag. But because of lack of ID, cannot borrow books from library. And no access to student portal. Haihhhhhh. Is tempted to steal Chee Kong's.

6. Met most of my lecturers. Have not seen English teacher. We Malaysian SAM students take the subject English as a Second Language. Shortened to ESL. It cracks me up. Second language pula. I shudder to think of Chinese as my first language. Malay hardly counts.

I did other things but you know what? This was supposed to be a short post.

Damn. I finished the ice-cream.

I command myself to be happy. and excited. and shameless. =)

Good luck everyone, on The First Day!

(YC advises you to smile at people, but not to smile until they think you're crazy. Good advice, methinks.)

I have received the best answer yet to my 'many doctors go mad - what if I go mad' query!

Menyi: We will send you to Tanjung Rambutan... and we will visit you every week!

Yay.

***

So I was right. =)

Lunch was good, even if Sylvester refused to bring Mulan to see us.

Also, it was very, very long - the rain made it seem perfectly reasonable for us to lepak around. We changed tables - haha I won't tell you why. I was cold. Menyi had a very comfortable-looking jacket. Jia Wei was offered a modelling job. Gowrie panicked with me. Kum Foeng marked papers and didn't show up.

And I am so very, very unprepared for the reality of moving on.

I am laughing a little because I just realised that an accusation I hurled at YC a while back really applies to me, too.

'You LIKE stressing yourself out, don't you?'

I asked as he moaned about pulling together enough people for yet another gathering, and at the same time made vague plans for the next one.

He said no, and we laughed about it at the time - but here's the thing. If he didn't do it, no one would. So very, very true.

I find myself doing the same thing, though perhaps on a smaller scope and somewhat less often. Handing out suggestions that manifest unexpectedly, for meet-ups, for sleepovers, and now, for a lunch before college starts and we all start changing, fast.

It is stressful. But you know what? All the work, all the calls, all the persuasion and indecision? It all works out, and it's all worth it.

Good way to start the new year. =)
