回到过去

For old times’ sake, we met at Kallang Leisure Park yesterday! Years ago, Toilet Gang squandered their youths away at the quaint little Bubble Tea shop and rundown bowling alley they so loved.

Our beloved paopaocha shop has since closed down, and the mall looks coldly unfamiliar after a drastic makeover.

After a horribly sinful Japanese buffet (so not vegetarian) we went to the games arcade to cheat at the drum machine and para para machine; race cars (got last place!) and shoot hoops. Such fun! We did look slightly out of place amidst the Bengs and Lians, but that’s awrrite.

An idea of overaged players cheating at the drum machine:

The game’s meant for one player. We had 6 hands but failed the game.

Anyway, I’ve always enjoyed (and excelled at) basketball, despite my sedentary lifestyle. Brabra said she would like one of those basketball machines in her house so she could burn some stress from mugging, and it sounded like a very good idea. Would love one, too.

To burn more fats we took kooky photos outside the cinema, with Marilyn Monroe, Patrick Dempsey and Po, the kungfu panda.

Overexerted self by laughing too much.

I’m going to watch Kungfu Panda only because of the cute pants Po wears.

It’s been so long since I got reduced to a silly giggling teen, and I relish every second of it. =) Thanks Bra, Cheryl, Linda, Mandy! I had a great time.

Be off to Krungtheb (aka Bangkok) on Saturday. Please don’t beat me up. I am always going on holidays not because I am filthy rich; it is only because I have parents who suffer from incurable wanderlust. Heh.

太感人了

Let me share a piece of earthshaking news with you, my dear reader.

I am so touched that my friend Eric does housework! He vacuums and mops! Under his usual facade of binging and shopping, I see another Eric.

OMG! I am put to shame!  I only iron clothes, change my own bedsheets and wash dishes when I feel like it. My father told me to sweep the floor yesterday but I cleverly dodged from this chore that I dont like.

Is he the only 20-year-old guy in Singapore who does housework?

Every time I think I might have more spare time on my hands to do real work, Bodhisattvas like Ching Wi will dump assign me with work. Life these days seem to be defined by deadlines.

Watched Lust, Caution. Ticket uncle smiled coyly at me as he tore my tickets. He probably didn’t ask for my IC only because I was with my mum. I am not 16 ARGH!

I think I need to master the art of Saying No in order to free myself from inane appointments. (not referring to CW!) I also need to learn how to print money so I can stop feeling my heart skip a beat whenever I see my account balance. It has plummeted to an all-time low. I can’t really fathom why, since most of my meals outside are paid for by charitable souls. I have also ceased to take any interest in the shopping in Singapore after coming back from BKK. Very, very mysterious.

朋友说我很自我。“没关系的,这是每个人必经的成长过程! ” 她说。真的吗? 那我应该继续“青春”还是该快点长大,不再自我, 变得更通情达理和成熟? 我一直在想。

人不痴狂枉少年。。。 况且,我还能任性多久呢? 再过几年, 我免不了到社会工作。那时的我,还能自我吗? 还能青涩吗?还能任性吗?我想,我还是想抓住青春的尾巴的。

Who’s the most environmentally-conscious person you know?

He/she

  • need not be someone I know
  • should be aged below 25
  • must be willing to be photographed
  • should be situated in Singapore
  • can be you!

I’m trying to do an article on environmentally-conscious young people, by tracking what are the little earth-saving things they might do in a single day. It will be published on www.omy.sg.

For example, they might turn off all switches in their room before going out. Or reject plastic bags whenever they can. Or use recycled paper to print everything; from lecture notes to e-tickets.

If you know of someone like that, or think you fit the bill, please tell me!

A million thanks 🙂
