Can I not go to school tomorrow?
I'm not really enjoying this block because Visual Presentation Essentials is crappy beyond belief, and 3D Art Fundamentals is nonsense because 1) I suck at sculpture, 2) KJ is SUCH a nonsense person. I feel like grabbing his little ponytail and ripping it off.
Having school in the morning did nothing to dampen my mood. Well, except that I left my ticket at home. Kwang kwang.
Ticket to what eh.
FORCE VOMIT LAH SIAL.
All I can say is, I was left high for AGES after that. Jumped around like a crazy fool after taking photos with the band.
Good. I'm sure those who know, know exactly why. Yes Yana, thanks for announcing. Hahas.
*suppresses a squeal of sheer joy*
Gahh. I really want to blog more, but I'm just too tired. K bye people.

I don't know, it left me happy yet slightly discontented. He talked to me lalalalala! I should have asked for his name.
But this is good, it shows that I have moved on.
I was thinking in the bus just now, in my half-asleep stupor. Thinking about alot of things.
Atiqah honey visited! I haven't seen her in AGES I tell you and I really miss the girl. What wouldn't I give for a reunion with the girls. So did Syafs and Zahd (who were both lamenting on the inconveniences of being attached), love you people.
I hope things smoothen out at work. I don't like work politics, and I don't ever want to get involved and let it affect the whole work environment. Plus, it's scary when Boss gets pissed off.
The fireworks were like whoaaa. Especially the last few bursts of pink, purple and gold. Spectacular.
It was Yana's birthday. Somebody's eighteen already! Two more years and your teenhood will be over. Haha so enjoy it while you can before people start harassing you to get married.
I hope he comes again.
BLEAH. I was attached to SB Central @ Clarke Quay, which is a great place. The bleah part was
I got my period and there were no sanitary napkins anywhere. Grahhhhh.
My shoes were unapproved because they had yellow stripes (clever me left my shoes at store the night before) so my so-called punishment was to go sampling Azuki three freaking times INSIDE the mall. Telor betol.
I got harassed by guys in orange tees begging me to apply for OCBC debit cards. Uh, if I had the money to spend in the first place, then maybe I would consider. Right now, a debit card is the LAST thing I should apply for.
Then I went to store. I walked all the way, and my feet were killing me! YiLong and his classmates were there. Amin was there! Smacked him all we could before he left for Tokyo. He's probably ogling hot Jap chicks right this second.
Tiring as hell. Did closing ( I know, on a school night ) with Nurul and I was coughing like nobody's business. Hai.
I get these insane coughing fits, and I actually cry because of them. And it's damn fucking embarassing. I actually fear for my contact lens, I mean, what if they like pop out or something you know?
So I was locking up the chairs and tables outside and this big group of Chinese tourists suddenly come over. They started talking to me in Chinese ( I assumed they were asking me if we were still open ) so I said " We are closed. "
Simple enough? Nope.
They started pulling the chairs and tried to sit on them. But they can't because I've locked up the chairs right. I said, " I already locked the chairs, so you can't sit here sorry! "
They sat ON the tables. -.-'
Bodoh macam telor!
Irritate me at one in the morning! While locking chairs! ( as I found out just yesterday, a surprisingly strenuous exercise )
But IT'S OKAY. I'm used to tourists, I REALLY AM woohoo!
Can't wait for 27th.

I am grumpy!
Having a BAD BAD BAD cough. It is so bad, I puked my Ramly burger out! I never puke nice food out okay. But I just did in the morning and it was so disgusting, I didn't attempt to eat anything else for the whole day until... my brother brought home hor fun.
I had a teeny bit and felt like puking again.
I'm tired of coughing. My head feels like it's going to explode with every cough and my stomach is EMPTY but it feels so bloated from all the water I've been drinking. Okay so it's not empty, but you know what I mean.
I vowed to myself that I would stay at home for three days straight to finish my A2 drawing. I successfully cooped myself up at home on Tuesday, BUT I didn't have any A2 paper on me so I couldn't start on the drawing. So I was pissbored.
I was DYING to go out on Wednesday, no thanks to Amin, but I fended him off (cheh). At first. I just couldn't get my hands on a piece of A2 paper without having to travel all the way to school so off to school I went. That was a circumstantial choice okay. I intended to get the paper and quickly run off home, but knowing me, I started on the damn thing because I felt so anxious looking at Lays, YT and Robin drawing.
I left school at around 8ish. Design is scary at night. No, really.
My throat better get better tomorrow lah!
Today I stayed at home to finish up the drawing. I destroyed three drawing pens *boohoo* in the process of doing so and the result is... Abit disappointing actually. I think I got frustrated because I kept coughing and coughing and getting up to go to the toilet every 20 minutes and in the end I was like, GRAHHHRRRHHH.
But what's done is done. There's no way in hell am I going to redo the bloody thing so yeah.
I just realised, if Taufiq joins SB-OF, it's going to get really confusing. When people say 'Fiq', both of us are so going to respond lah! I still get confused when people mention Syaf. They mean Syafiqah, not me, but I STILL GET CONFUSED because my friends outside call me Syaf. Mati.
*imagining the whole situation and laughing to myself*
Ahem, anyway, tomorrow is the last day of the block so I can slack my ass off during the weekend! Yahay! I'm going to have to lug a shitload of stuff to school tomorrow just for submission, and more stuff for work. Bleh.
I can BET you I'm going to get C's and below for HisGD and DrawEss. You want to bet?? Cannot, since betting is HARAM.
I think the cough's getting to me.

My cough's getting worse.STOP IT WITH THE TECHNO
! Apparently somebody has decided to set up a pasar malam in his house and is blaring bad techno music since noon. I cannot
draw with bad music. So I'm blogging.
Before that I got woken up by the karung guni's horn, after which somebody karaoke'd their way in Cantonese/Hokkien from eleven to noon, then the techno took over. And I'm having a bleddy headache. Can they please kindly shut the fuck up.
I have no lessons today till Thursday! Yahay!
Sunday I got attached to Vivocity. Opening. I woke up at 6.30 and arrived half an hour late. A LaMarzocco, again! So, predictably, I got POS. People were streaming in at 9am in the morning, and I'm like, are all these people seriously okay or not?
AND WEY WHY DO I SMELL SHIT??
Yana came in at 10, and she unfortunately got Bar, so she had to battle with the LaMar.
Around 11ish, people started pouring in and it got crazy as hell. I tried taking my time with the payment and food and stuff, and I think I did okay; there weren't any pissed off customers (though there was this pukimak haram who was upset that her drink took slightly longer than she expected and her face was like, well, a pukimak haram).
I hate people who come in and think their money is of such high value. As if we can't make business without them. You know, the kind who look at you like "You're just a lowly barista so be thankful I am even speaking to you if this was a Third World country I will make you kiss my feet."
They speak like they have a cactus shoved up their asses, and they just throw the money on the counter, like oh, 50 bucks is nothing to me, I bet it's half your monthly pay right. No thankyou, no how are you, no oh it's okay. Just a cold stare and maybe a sharp 'Yes' or so.
These people can go fuck off
Hello, you are just paying by paper money lor! Think you so bigshot isit hah?
Phssssshh. Even the people who pay by credit card are nicer.
Anyway, I broke a plate there. Haha! It was by accident I swear! Then I dropped a cookie. I think it was Fiq's Clumsy Day lah.
I love the partners there. Hello to Syidah, Hazwani, Sam and Nad! Despite the unrelenting crowd, me and Yana pulled through (cheh) and we were famished so we ate at Banquet.
Chicken Cutlet noodles rock balls.
Then we went into Candy Empire (BIG mistake) and I blew 20 bucks on the pick and mix chocolates. I know right.
Then we went back to store!
Amin was sleeping in the back room. It was scary
I thought he was talking on the phone or something, but no, he was snoring. And I was damn scared. Ahhh okay he's going to smack me if he reads this haha!
Yana and me were both extremely bored (or in Yana's words: MENDAK SIOL),and she knows why haha!
Went home slightly earlier than when I would have gone if there was no freaking HisGD journal to finish. Bodoh macam telor.
The techno's still going on, and the headache's getting worse.
So I handed in an extremely nonsensical HisGD journal yesterday. HisGD is, well, history! Okay lame.
Met Taufiq, haven't seen him in ages. He can't whistle for nuts! Haha!
SB-OF Barista Olympics!
Boss came back from Aussie, and I kind of miss his nonsense. He seemed happier. Haha!
My team got third, but it's okay. The medals are super nice. Champions get polo tees, daymn.
Then we all went to Lau Pa Sat, but not before scaring some poor partner at the Starbucks right behind Lau Pa Sat by pressing against the glass and staring at him. Haha!!
I ate too much. Grahhhs. They were selling adorable little ice balls for 10cents each! 10 cents man, where the heck can you actually purchase anything for 10cents in Singapore?? Hmmm??
BBQ chicken wings + satay + carrot cake + butter sotong = bliss (albeit a fatty and oily bliss that is)
Okay, back to work. My Drawing Essentials final project is due on Friday, and I still haven't done up my folio and sketchbook. I have have have to stop procrastinating, seriously my god.

The reality of my undone History of Graphic Design (which I shall refer to as HisGD hereafter) journal has just hit me, and I am not really panicking YET, but there is a rising sense of urgency. I am in a good mood today because I bought new shampoo (no more budget economy size nonsense), plus conditioner plus moisturiser for my long-suffering skin! Suddenly life seems so happy and cheerful.
So I cheonged and found pictures with descriptions so all I have left to do at home is print them out and paste them in my journal! Fantastic. And submission's on Friday, after which there will be no more HisGD and I can finally focus on Drawing Essentials. I swear, I am SO lagging behind in Drawing Essentials I scare myself.
I have work today! I miss store.
Reached home at midnight yesterday, went online for awhile, then I couldn't take it and slept all the way till 7.30. Which means I overslept. So here I am at the Mac lab blogging while the class is having their so-called lecture next door. Nyahaha.
Went back to Anderson Sec yesterday, to accompany Shikin to collect her O-Level cert. As sad as this is, I don't feel ANYTHING for Anderson anymore. I didn't even feel the slightest bit nostalgic or whatever yesterday. Maybe it was because the school seemed dead when we came. And it was just the two of us, not the whole bunch, so yeah. I did feel abit scared for myself due to the possibility of bumping into the Stalker (remember the deranged pschopathic mat who chased me around while screaming expletives at me for no fucking reason?) but THANKGOD he wasn't there. Maybe he was getting raped by a goat somewhere.
Then we went to town, with Shikin in her most lepak outfit HAHAHA kay sorry babe, to meet up with Amin. We were supposed to eat at Sakae (!!!) but since Fadzil was working, Sakae was cancelled. Boo. We ate at Resto Surabaya at Lucky Plaza. I didn't know any other eating places existed in Lucky Plaza other than Macs and the ayam penyet place outside the pool place haha!
And thanks to Amin for introducing us to the place because the beef rocked balls. Seriously. Even the kangkong tasted different, in a good way. We got stuffed (except for Amin anyway), then headed to Cineleisure, met up with Zaini with the intention of watching Die Hard 4.0 (cue eye rolling) or Transformers (I HAVE NOT WATCHED THIS OKAY) but when we wanted to queue for tickets, all the earlier shows were sold out. Nabeh teng teng.
Sooooo we accompanied Zaini for dinner. Walked to this cute little place called Warong M. Nasir (don't ask me about the namesake, I have no idea) at the Killiney Kopitiam stretch behind Orchard Point and, uh, watched Zaini eat and Amin throwing bottle caps around. The food looked so nice but I was still stuffed, so maybe next time.
Oh, saw this hot skater with a bigass tattoo on his upper right torso. So hot. But I'm not feeling skaters (because most of them ahem cough cannot make cough it ahem ahem), so never mind.
Then we went store! I think (I think?) I've grown attached to store. If One Fullerton were to ever close down, (TOUCH ALOT OF WOOD), I will cry. It can't close down, it's like Tourist Central. The Merlion's there! Okay. Trying to reassure myself.
Zul Bukitku cut his hair. He is the cutest little thing (sounds wrong considering he's a year older than me hahah) on earth. Haha. Too bad yesterday was his last day. Boohoo. BUT but but he's always welcome at OF because we love him. Compared to... Um yah. You better visit okay, if not Shikin will come looking for you with a gun at RC.
Shit. I need to shit. K bye.

I'm having a badass headache. I think I'm dehydrated. Eating too much, but not drinking enough water. Ho hum.
Feeling fat today.
I need to exercise! I am so unfit. I bet if you make me run 400m I will just die. I used to have a fitness regime which consisted of situps and squats and God knows what else, a non-existent diet, and both have gone flying out of the window. I feel like taking up yoga. I've read so much on its benefits (especially the weight loss part) it sounds almost too good to be true. Or, I should get a gym membership. I'm not so much of a gym rat but since I actually have to fork out money, it's enough of an incentive to frequent the gym I think.
And no, I haven't finished my 50 drawings.
Why are some people so hard to get over?
I need a distraction, but distractions are not coming! Okay, maybe there's one every Saturday, but once a week isn't enough. Hrmmms.

I purposedly accidentally woke up an hour late today so I can miss the fugboring monstrosity that is History of Graphic Design. I swear, I am becoming so freaking slack these days (not my fault, I am very tired) I better be careful and not plunge into the endless abyss of slackerdom. I have shitloads of Drawing Essential assignments to do, so I'm plainly committing suicide by working today. Not to mention the godforsaken HisGD Journal (which is utter nonsense) which I haven't embarked upon yet (and it's supposed to be a daily affair), so, yeah.
Insufficient rest does fucked-up things to your voice.
My Dad scares me more than walking home alone at midnight. o.O
Payday coming! Do you know how much that means to me? Alot. Yeah. I know it means alot to those whom I owe in terms of monetary value also. Haha.
The condition of my nails is seriously deteriorating. They're brittle and peeling! Disgusting!
Wow that was profound.
That was two days ago. I guess I type really aimlessly when I'm bored.

I was sooooooo tempted to fuck school and sleep in today but I guess my conscience got the better of me and here I am, typing this very post, in school. It's Youth Day for everybody else, but for some tragic reason, not for poly people. So we're not youths huh huh huh???
Friday was Speech Day for my beloved (ACK!) ex-secondary school, and I went SOLELY for the sake of seeing my friends, some I see frequently, some I see not-so-frequently, and some I haven't seen since O-Level results. And also see how certain teachers are doing. Certain ah.
It was... nothing to scream about as usual, Speech Day is a heck of a crappy event we all know that. But it was great seeing everybody together again. It brought a nice warm fuzzy feeling in my heart. Hahaha okay syaf stop it now. I'm sorry, I slept in the bus on the way here and now I'm feeling all drowzy and nonsensical. Aiming to get as much sleep as possible because I'm working today and tomorrow night, after which I'm going to be burnt.
Attached to Great World City yesterday. It was tiring because of the constant flow of customers, unlike OF, and I was tired just standing at register and taking orders. And the stupid blenders! The thing about the blenders is that you press the button, and it takes approximately three seconds before they start blending. I didn't know that, duh, so I thought I didn't press the button properly or place the pitcher properly. So I flipped up the cover and raised the pitcher to re-position it and the damn thing started blending there and then and I was damn freaked out can!
Also, they had little fans placed at the bar because it was quite warm, and I was looking for the green tea powder container. Then I found it, and in my elation, I neglected to notice a fan placed right above the container. So yeah. I scooped up the powder and I got assaulted by a mist of green tea powder in my face. Doesn't help that I hate green tea either. Especially the green tea powder at Starbucks. Bahh.
Anyhoo, I'm being attached to Bugis Village tomorrow, and I can bet the Frapp station will be damn busy. I hope I get register again.
OKay class starting, turrah!
@ 5:49 PM
Am very tired now.
Yesterday something really freaky happened! And I don't really want it to happen but it happened! Haha. Hai. Why do you have to test me so?
But thanks to Syafs, retail therapy helped. Love you!
I think that's all for now. I just only wish there's no school tomorrow.
