im gonna post some really really really old photos, from the time we had a daytrip in jb. hm. just watched ip man. (which really reminded me of Huo Yuan Jia)  im feeling lethargic so i’ll just narrate the pix haha

i remember we took a bus in. and it was kind of my first (or second, not sure, just that it was very rare ok!) time taking public transport into malaysia. i also remember it being quite convenient and hassle free, except when fighting for space unto buses.

so we mainly just visited one shopping mall (i know, sad right?) there was this shop with many cute things and interesting knick-knacks.


i know its lame. but its cute! haha. meanwhile pk is still trying to get it.. nvm… its ok pk…


they also sold some nice belt buckle designs ^


meanwhile, joyce entertains herself trying out the trucker hats


at first, i was fascinated by this t-shirt’s cute design. but when i took a closer look i was like oh man.. lol.. how unfortunate


joyce and pk wanted to cut hair so we were checking out which place was cheapest.. in the end, we found out all of their posters are not very trustworthy, purely because of the ++ signs besides their quoted prices. so definitely, ask before you cut!!


on our way back to the bus terminal to go home, we saw this voodoo doll hanging from a sign post. kinda freaky huh.. mwahhaa


so, i wanted to take a group photo before we went back. evidently, this was a great success, and everyone was very cooperative! sigh. (one guy is not even in the photo but hiding somewhere behind the camera.. dots..)

and so we went home. my only purchase? some crappy dvds lol. lesson: must bring more money next time. =)

a sight for sore eyes

i almost couldn’t believe it when i saw it. a rare sighting of a double decker 151. during morning peak hour. hahaha only ngee ann poly, sim and nus students will understand how i feel !!!dsc01232

another sight i love to see:


haha i love seeing all those power tiles


and presenting: the Yankee Burger from New York New York. it costs about $40 with gst and service charge but the catch is: if you can finish the whole plate by yourself, it’s free. hahaha! dev’s hand is there for easy reference so you can gauge your likelihood of completion.. i think it’s just nice for 2 guys to share D: (or 4 girls, lol!) yum yum. each quarter of the burger is like a normal fast food burger HAHA wooo. plus the mountain of fries!!! oh… drools…

Special term II at NUS just started this week. so for these next 5/6 weeks, the 2 modules i’ll be taking are:

  • Places, Environment & Society (Geography); and
  • Malay Language

mwahaha. for Malay, we were told to create a blog to post about our malay learning. but to be economical (i.e. save effort [i.i.e. i am dam lazy]) i will just post here instead! how clever i am!! so, let me talk about my lessons this week. i’ll try to mix in a bit of malay so i can impress my tutor too! *EDIT!!* haha okay i DID create a dedicated malay blog. check it out here if you really wanna read atrocious malay. (SHIMMER PLs teach me!!)

let’s start with the simplest greetings!

“Apa khabar?” translates simply to “how are you?” however, what is interesting is that the literal translation is “what news?” but in the context of malay conversation, it means “how are you?” and the simple reply would be “Khabar baik” which translates literally, to “Good news” but is taken to mean, “I am fine.” mwahaha please, try asking your friends now! (note to Zi Yao, please dont flame me! i know u malay v pro lol)

In church, Ella taught me another greeting. she taught me “Selamat Sabbath” which means, Happy Sabbath!!

Okay, but how was my geography class?? Geography class was sangat gembira (very fun!) because, we got to see optical illusions for lesson! actually, a more accurate term for these would be um… stereograms!! so he flashed a few for the class to try and see. for the first one i stared really really really hard…. until my eyeballs started to ache.. the trick! the trick is to focus on these 2 dots, until u make three distinct dots. then you know you’ve found the correct depth to view the “magic” ooohhh. but a lot of stereograms don’t come with these dots though.

try refocusing your vision until the 2 dots become 3. eh heh heh. not so easy right! i am smart!!

so anyway, i stared for dam long…… and i finally saw something!! but suddenly it would disappear. then i had to refocus all over again.. so…. aggravating….. grr….. i missed the first one, but i guessed the second one correctly!! and the prof gave me a prize!! more evidence of my intelligence! i even got that to rhyme sia

he gave me a mysteriously wrapped golden package!! i felt so special!!

and inside the special golden package was CHOCOLATE! plus a pen, a post-it pad, and an encouraging happy note. what a nice professor, right?? his name is Prof. T. C. Chang!

saya suka makan coklat. coklat sangat sedap!

ok to end off my mundane post, here’s 2 stereograms to challenge you and make u feel dumb. it’s okay if you cant see it. try relaxing your eyes, and seeing past the image. (focus your eyes on a depth range behind the image) keke. only smart people can see it ok!

this one above has an actual shape embedded inside. good luck wahahaha

this one, however, is merely a 3d-ification of the fishes!! if u get it, its quite beautiful! sort of like suddenly switching from a 2d view to 3d..

all in all, i enjoyed my first week of classes. although the school week is much heavier than my previous special term, i enjoy these modules much more! OK! Jumpa Lagi (till we meet agaiN!)

Selamat Malam (good niteeeeeeeeee)
