I just realized that I've hit more than 1000 hugs on the hug counter. I have absolutely no doubt that this is Praveen's doing. Oh, and maybe some of Yen's too. Haha. You guys too damn free la! But I appreciate it. Thanks! *hugs*

That aside, more bad news for today. Former deputy prime minister Tun Ghafar Baba passed away this morning. My deepest condolences go out to his family. Shaza, I'm so sorry for your loss.

I probably won't be much blogging much this week. My deadline has been pushed forward by a week -- one week has just disappeared into thin air! Four more weeks til final deadline. I can't wait. Wish me all the best!
Monday night an uncle of mine passed away. It was sudden and came as a shock to us all. I know I'm not exactly very close to my extended family, but family is family and I feel remorse.

Rest in peace, sa kor tiew. [sp?] You will be missed.

Apart from that, nothing much has been going on. Classes have been a bore. I'm about to repaint my toenails after this, but I won't be painting my fingernails for a while, because I have quite a lot of model making to do over the next few weeks. I've designed my business card already and will be sending it out to print soon, hopefully.

So. Sunday was Cempaka's Annual Sports Day. Yen and I decided to go on a whim; we decided this on Friday whilst watching a Care Bears movie and blowing bubbles in her house [Hehe, yay to having silly fun, Yen!]. She wanted to see her brother march. This year's Sports Day was held at the KLFA Stadium.

Honestly, when I picked Yen up that morning to go to the stadium, we had absolutely no clue where the stadium was; apart from it being somewhere in Cheras. Amazingly, we managed to navigate ourselves there in just 20 minutes or so. A lot shorter than I thought. Parking was a bitch, it was super crowded, but we managed to find one after about 15 minutes. Getting out of Bandar Tun Razak, however, was horrible. We couldn't find our way back out and it took ages. :/ I also dropped Yu Jin off on the way back. That was my first time actually driving on my own, without my parents. :P But it was fun.

I took a few photos, but am just going to put up this one, since the rest are mostly of people marching, and the shots were not brilliant since the bloody bleachers were in the way.

Of Harimau pride.


I have to admit that I thought that Seladang did the best this year for the March Past. Definitely one of the most creative themes I've seen over the last few years. Harimau's theme, however, I thought was a little odd; no offense. Bugs. When I think of bugs I think of pesky mosquitoes and Disney's A Bug's Life and Antz. I think of insect repellent. Not exactly something nice to associate Tigers with. But I applaud them for their team spirit; it was great. Oh, and during the march I remember them doing this stomp that we used in my senior year.. Yay for marching and cheerleading traditions!

It's a sign that I'm getting older when I go back for a school event and I can barely recognize the students; and the juniors that I remember have all become seniors or have graduated. I find it hard to believe that it's been 3 years since I left school. Sometimes I miss high school, sometimes I don't. I miss everything being secure and happy and easy, unlike now. But that's about it.

And just for fun, more pictures of my nails.

Pink fingernails. I should've taken this picture last week; my nails are starting to grow out, hence the small gap between the nail polish and cuticle line.

Roses on big toe. I refuse to zoom in on my stubby feet.


Bloody photos took forever to upload. Photobucket is gay.

Oh, one more thing. I completely lost track of the dates and forgot a special someone's birthday; so here's a shoutout ::

Happy Belated Birthday Joanne!

I love you, you've been a great friend. :)

Condominiums

My weekend was good, but I feel guilty for bumming around half the time.

My Monday studio tutorial was postponed to Tuesday, then once more postponed to Wednesday. This worries me because I have studio on Thursday too, and it's supposed to be a critique session, and I don't know how much I can get done in that one day. Meh. I feel like I'm falling behind on work. Should get started making a model tomorrow, but I don't know if I have cardboard pieces which are big enough.

I got a car. Well, it's my stepaunt's, not mine; but it's mine to use for now. It was such a hassle finding a good parking bay to rent, but it all worked out fine in the end. I've got a good bay, just next to the parking entrance; but unfortch only til the end of July. Will worry about things later. Also had to spend extra on a car sticker and proxy card. Living in a condominium can be super annoying at times.

Come to think about it, if I lived in a landed house, I could park anywhere I want. I could buy tons of groceries and not need a trolley to take it upstairs [and have to take the trolley back down]. I wouldn't need to wait for the lift, and I could avoid awkward silences with strangers in the lift. I wouldn't have to carry a resident's ID and the card thingy that gets me past the pedestrian sidewalk next to the guardhouse, and past the glass doors before the lift. I wouldn't have to buzz visitors in, and they wouldn't have to register with the guards.

Of course it does have its advantages. I feel safe. There are facilities; swimming pool, squash & badminton court, playgrounds, etc. Err honestly I can't think of any more right now but there definitely are more.

But when I move out // get married, I'd like a landed house please.

Yet another tag. :)

Hmph. My air conditioner began leaking last night, so I have to sleep with the fan until my mum gets it fixed. It's so incredibly hot in my room.

It's back to Cenfad this week; back to the torture. On the bright side, however, I'm just slightly under two months to graduate [excluding the internship]. That makes me feel [slightly] better.

I just remembered that I was tagged by Shuen like, a month ago. So here goes ::

1. Thank the person who tagged you.
2. List five random/strange/weird things about you,
3. Tag five other people.

1. Thanks Shuen!

2. Me, weird?
♥ I'm really particular about the cleanliness of my feet. The first thing I do whenever I go into my house or a friend's house is to head to the bathroom and wash my feet.
♥ I paint my nails about once a week but I always get UHU glue stuck on them when I'm making models so I have to constantly patch them up.
♥ I have 50++ Archie comics, most of which were bought when I was little.
♥ I'm terrible at sketching from imagination.
♥ I have miniscule handwriting.

3. I'm not going to tag anyone because I know most people won't be bothered that much, so if you're bored and feel like it go ahead. =)

Have a great weekend ahead you all.
