I believe some of my friends knows this but I had bought Twilight by Stephenie Meyer in October 2007. Yes, it's been 1 year plus and yesterday, I finally finished the whole book. Considered how I had always been labeled the "voracious" reader by my teachers, that's a pretty slow feat heh?
As a matter of fact, I had heard about how awesome the book was waaaaaay before the movie came out. However, it took the movie to get me all fascinated in the forbidden love between Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.
It's true when they say that the movie didn't compare to the book. The book is fascinating! I cannot begin to explain how good and detailed it was as opposed to the movie. Sure, I would watch the movie over and over again and not get sick of it but the book just sinks me deeper and deeper as I continued on reading it.
Anyhow, last Saturday, I finally got my full collection of the books by Stephenie Meyer. Yes, the other three were made available and hence I have it all.
Isabella "Bella" Swan moves from sunny Phoenix, Arizona to rainy Forks, Washington to live with her father, Charlie. She chooses to do this so that her mother, Renée, can travel with her new husband, Phil Dwyer, who is a minor league baseball player. Bella attracts much attention at her new school and is quickly befriended by several students. Much to her dismay, several boys in the school compete for shy Bella's attention.
When Bella sits next to Edward Cullen in class on her first day of school, Edward seems utterly repulsed by her. After tricking a family friend, Jacob Black, into telling her local tribal legends, Bella concludes that Edward and his family are vampires who drink the blood of animals, not humans. Edward reveals that he initially avoided Bella because the scent of her blood was so desirable to him. Over time, Edward and Bella fall in love.
Their relationship is thrown into chaos when another vampire coven sweeps into Forks and James, a tracker vampire, decides that he wants to hunt Bella for sport. The Cullens plan to distract the tracker by splitting up Bella and Edward, and Bella is sent to hide in a hotel in Phoenix. Bella then gets a phone call from James in which he says that he has her mother, and that Bella must give herself up to save her. She does so and James attacks her, but Edward, along with the rest of the Cullen family, rescues Bella before James can kill her. Once they realize that James has bitten Bella's hand, Edward sucks the venom out of her system before it can spread and change her into a vampire. Upon returning to Forks, Bella and Edward attend their prom and Bella expresses her desire to become a vampire, which Edward refuses to let happen.
Protagonist Isabella "Bella" Swan is thrown an eighteenth birthday party by Alice and Edward Cullen, the vampire she loves, and the rest of their vampire family. While unwrapping a gift, she receives a paper cut. Edward's brother Jasper, although attempting a non-human diet, is overwhelmed by the scent of blood and tries to attack Bella. In an attempt to keep her safe from the world of vampires, Edward tells Bella that he and the rest of his family are leaving the town of Forks, Washington because he doesn't want her anymore. Bella becomes severely depressed and seeks comfort with Jacob Black, an old family friend who eases her pain over losing Edward.
Bella and Jacob begin spending a lot of time together, and Bella soon discovers that the rush of adrenaline present when she places herself in dangerous situations stimulates hallucinations of Edward's voice. Bella begins seeking out dangerous behavior, such as riding a motorcycle, to trigger the illusions. Meanwhile, Jacob finds out that he is a werewolf, and eventually reveals this secret to Bella. The werewolves begin to protect Bella from the pursuit of the vampire Victoria, who seeks revenge for the death of her mate, James, who was killed by the Cullens in Twilight. After Bella attempts cliff-diving, she gets caught in a riptide and is rescued by Jacob.
At the same time, Alice Cullen, Edward's vampire sister who has visions of the future, has a vision of Bella jumping off the cliff. Presuming Bella is dead, Alice rushes to Forks to check on Charlie Swan, Bella's father, while Edward calls Bella's home. Jacob answers and informs Edward that Charlie is at a funeral, referring to that of a man in town who had died of a heart attack, but Edward draws the conclusion that he means Bella's funeral. Desperate after Bella's supposed death, Edward flies to Italy to see the Volturi, peace-keeping vampires who would be able to kill Edward, granting him leave of a world without Bella.
Bella and Alice rush to Italy to stop Edward, and save him before it is too late. Before they leave Italy, the Volturi tell them that Bella, a human who knows of the existence of vampires, must either be killed or changed into a vampire herself. After they return to Forks, Edward explains to Bella that he only left in order to protect her, and she forgives him. The book ends with the Cullens voting in favor of Bella being changed into a vampire, much to Edward's dismay.
The story begins with the revelation that Seattle is being plagued by a string of unsolved murders, which Edward suspects are being caused by a newborn vampire that is unable to control its thirst. Edward and Bella fill out college applications, while Bella explains to Edward her desire to see Jacob, her werewolf friend, again. Meanwhile, Alice Cullen has a vision that Victoria, a vampire who is hunting Bella, is back in town. Although Edward fears for her safety, Bella insists that Jacob and the rest of the werewolf pack would never harm her, and he eventually allows her to visit Jacob once in a while.
A few days later, Bella expresses her desire to make love with Edward before being turned into a vampire. Edward initially refuses, explaining to Bella that he could very easily kill her. Eventually, upon realizing how much it means to Bella, he agrees to try in the future as long as they are married first. Despite having an aversion to marriage, Bella realizes that spending eternity with Edward is more important to her than anything else and accepts his proposal.
Bella and the Cullens realize that the murders in Seattle are being committed by Victoria and an "army" of newborn vampires. The Cullen family joins forces with the werewolf pack in order to combat this threat. As everyone else prepares for battle, Edward and Bella camp up in the mountains, where they are later joined by Jacob and Seth Clearwater, a young member of the werewolf pack, to wait out the fight.
In the morning, Jacob overhears Edward and Bella discussing their engagement and becomes very upset. He threatens to join the fight and get himself killed because Bella doesn't love him. To stop him, Bella kisses Jacob and realizes that she loves him, too. After Victoria and her army are successfully destroyed, Bella explains to Jacob that while she loves him, her love for Edward is greater and she cannot live without him. Jacob, angry at Bella's decision to become a vampire, runs away in his wolf form to escape the pain he feels.
Breaking Dawn is split into three separate "books", or parts. The first part details Bella's marriage and honeymoon with Edward, which they spend on a private island off the coast of Brazil. Edward grants Bella's wish and makes love to her. Soon after, Bella sees a box of unused tampons and realizes that she is pregnant. After contacting Carlisle, who confirms her belief, she and Edward plan to return home. Edward, concerned for her well being, urges her to get an abortion. However, Bella wants to keep the child and decides to contact Rosalie for support, knowing that Rosalie has always wanted children.
The second part of the novel is written from Jacob Black's point of view, and lasts throughout Bella's pregnancy and childbirth. The pack of werewolves, not knowing what danger the unborn child may pose, make plans to destroy it, even though they must kill Bella to do so. Jacob vehemently disagrees with this decision and revolts, leaving the pack to form his own with Seth and Leah Clearwater. Bella soon gives birth, approximately a month after becoming pregnant. The baby breaks many of her bones, and Bella loses massive amounts of blood. In order to save her life, Edward changes her into a vampire. Jacob, who was present for the birth, immediately "imprints" — an involuntary response in which a werewolf finds his soul mate — on Edward and Bella's newborn daughter, Renesmee.
The third section of Breaking Dawn shifts back to Bella's perspective, finding her changed into a vampire and enjoying her new life and abilities. However, the vampire Irina misidentifies Renesmee as an "immortal child", a child who has been turned into a vampire. The creation and protection of "immortal children" was previously outlawed by the Volturi. After Irina presents her allegation to the Volturi, they plan to destroy Renesmee and the Cullens. In an attempt to save her, the Cullens gather vampires from around the world to stand as witnesses and prove to the Volturi that Renesmee is not an immortal child. Upon confronting the gathered Cullen allies and witnesses, the Volturi discover that they have been misinformed and immediately execute Irina for her mistake. However, they remain undecided on whether Renesmee should be viewed as a threat to the secret existence of vampires. At that time, Alice and Jasper, who had left prior to the confrontation, return with Nahuel, a 150-year-old vampire-human crossbreed like Renesmee. He demonstrates that the crossbreeds pose no threat and the Volturi leave, knowing that they no longer have just reason to destroy Renesmee. Bella, Edward and Renesmee return to their home, free to live their lives in peace.
Now, off to read NEW MOON! :D
And has Stephenie Meyer got you? YET?

Love is like taking a scholarship?
It's not even Valentine's Day yet but it seems like everyone around me is falling in love. How can I not be bothered? I so damn hot and yet the ugly ones get attached or are currently in the process.
GOD IS SO UNFAIR probably hasn't sent the right one to me just as yet.
Anyhow, looking back almost TWO years ago, perhaps I had taken things for granted. Love was something I took lightly. I never learn how to cherish, give in whenever possible or even understand what it's all about.
It make me wonder. I was telling a friend the other day about how memories are essential for our future. Like how we can always find someone new but memories spent with an someone in the past would still be compared. It's hard to find someone almost miles away better than your ex. Really, and I'm not lying.
Perfection is what we seek but it's always something we barely can get. Sure, we can but that's only because we compromise with what we have cause nobody is infallible. Face it now, we all have flaws. It just so happens that some of us have more flaws than we ever do.
Have you wondered why the extremely HOT people and they NOT SO HOT people are falling in love? Cause love is stereotyped. HOT people and HOT people get together MOST of the time. In psychology, I learn that this is due to similarities amongst individuals. Not only in looks, but also in terms of character/personality. I like to believe that this is indeed true. When two individuals with a common interest or liking, they tend to get along better. There are times when I see people on the street and some pass off as siblings. Really. No kidding.
But, they are dating, of course. Obviously siblings don't hug and touch each other excessively and then pucker up to each other right? I'm not THAT dumb, I would think.
Honestly, when you date, majority of the people nowadays date because they love each other or see themselves being comfortable with the other party. Ironically, marriage is never on their minds. At least not on both parties' minds, I would say.
Hence, at this age, how often can we say that the other person is the one we want to marry and really mean it. For guys, there's still the NS hurdle and then possible to higher education cause really male ego provides no options of us being inferior to our female counterparts.
As for females, different women have different expectations. Some want their men to be successful so that they can be rich tai tais and probably live life like how Gabrielle Solis does in Desperate Housewives or some of them would want to be the all revered Stepford wife like Bree Hodge is.
It all depends.
Sometimes, I feel like falling in love is like going for an interview for a scholarship. There are many stages, you get scrutinized and then finally, you get what you "apparently" seek for. However, for those "scholarships" with bonds, it may be harder to stay and enjoy the benefits if the interest diminishes as time goes by.
Love is like taking a scholarship, much?

More than a guilty pleasure.
When a 40-year old man arrived at a hospital asking to see a doctor specializing in "men's troubles", he was shown to a cubicle. There, he gingerly unwrapped three yards of foul smelling, stained gauze from around his scrotum, which had swollen to twice the size of a grapefruit.
On further inspection, it was discovered that his left testicle was missing completely and, embedded within the swollen, tender and weeping wound, were a number of dark objects which the patient confessed were one inch staple nails from an industrial staple gun.
It transpired that the man spent lunchtimes alone in the workshop, where he regularly enjoyed the sexual thrill of placing his penis on the moving canvas fan belt of a piece of machinery. One day, the excitement had caused him to lose his concentration and the fan-belt had snatched his scrotum into the fly-wheel, throwing him several feet across the floor and removing his left testicle. Rather than go to hospital, he self-administered first aid using a staple gun and then continued work when his colleagues returned. It was two weeks before he got around to visiting the hospital.
I have no idea why someone would want to do that. Like honestly, I'm pretty sure he derives pleasure from doing so but all these cheap thrills and etc all came with a price. Instead of doing this, there are other ways, isn't it?
But let's keep that as a secret. :D
Beware of your manhood.
Not just for guys, but for girls as well.
If you ever swim in the Amazon and Oranoco Rivers of South America please think twice before urinating in the water. Fish called Candiru or Carnero is attracted by urine smell (urea and ammonia) and it can insert it self into the penis or vagina while urinating. Then penis fish lodges itself somewhere in the urinary tract with its spines and it uses its mouth for feeding by sucking the blood. It is almost impossible for fish to survive inside of the human body. Removal of the fish is extremely hard due to the spines and if problem is not treated it can result in removal of the genitals.
The fish locates its human targets when people urinate near the fish. A well-circulated myth is that the candiru is capable of swimming up the stream of urine in mid-air to a victim standing on shore or a boat, although this assertion is likely false. Nonetheless, there was a case in which the victim claimed that the fish jumped while he was urinating thigh deep. They are also probably not attracted to pure urine. It is believed that they are able to enter a human urethra only when it is expanded during urination.
This is vicious. This fish is even said to be more fearful than a piranha.
It totally reminds me not to piss now in the public; especially in the countless swimming pools that I have been in. It's scary to see how the fish attacked in the video. It's totally a destruction.
Anyways, I decided to check up on piranhas as well and I came across many videos of them. There are some of the videos which showed the complete ugly side of humans. In my opinion, they should not have done this cause it's totally inhumane.
Do not click and watch it if you are faint hearted.
The first video shows piranhas eating a live frog.
The second video shows piranhas eating a live mouse.
It's damn disgusting please. I posted it because I wanted you all to see the dangers that the piranhas pose to us but at the same time, I don't advocate the whole feeding thing that these people does.
The world in the wilds is damn cruel but I guess it's more cruel when we try to incorporate the wild into our world.

Sex fest canceled due to public pressure.
I was surfing around and this got me cracked up.
Sex fest scheduled to be held on 'International Orgasm Day' and seeking to promote world peace called off after owner of venue meant to host event caves in to threats
After weeks of preparations for the largest sex event of its kind in Israel, organizers were forced to cancel it this week due to public pressure and threats exerted on the owner of the venue where the sex fest was to take place.
The event in question, which was scheduled to take place on "International Orgasm Day," aimed to bring together some 250 participants seeking to promote world peace through multiple orgasms reached by masturbation or sex.
The orgy was organized by the Raelian movement, a UFO religion whose followers believe humankind was created by aliens. The group's spokesman, Kobi Drori, said that the orgy was meant to include straights, gays, lesbians and bisexuals, all of them over 18.
"The purpose of the event was to try and bring world peace through mass orgasm, this by experiencing consensual sex and natural, uninterrupted pleasure. It was important to make love without feeling guilty or shy," he explained.
Drori protested the fact that nowadays the words "war," "violence" and "murder" have become more legitimate than "sex," "orgasm" and "pleasure."
"It should be the other way around. Several years ago an Iraqi boy whose limbs were amputated was shown on TV and everybody treated this as if it was okay, but when Janet Jackson exposed her breast during the Superbowl the American nation was appalled
"We wanted to put into practice the saying 'make love, not war'.
'Society based on self-fulfillment'
According to Drori, the orgy was just the first in a series of events dedicated to promoting this objective. On January 22 the movement will hold a conference on sexuality and masturbation with experts and writers in the field.
He also vowed that the cancelation of this year's orgy would not deter the Raelians from setting up another sex fest next year.
The Raelian movement has several hundreds followers in Israel and some 70,000 members worldwide.
"We don't believe in demons, ghosts and gods," said Drori. "The group's primary goal is to inform humanity, without attempting to persuade, regarding scientific messages that deal with the origins of life on earth.
"The second goal is to expedite the establishment of a society based on the principles of non-violence, solidarity, self-fulfillment and pleasure. To establish one global currency, one global government and harness science to the service of humanity, and not against humanity," he concluded.
See the quotes in bold. Damn funny.
First of all, happy boxing day!
Can you imagine eating that? It looks kinda fun though. Spread the cheese, pour water and watch it grow. But then again, who wants to eat something coming from holes with dusts and all? :D
Can someone tell me the various factors that caused the economic crisis?
I feel like giving up now.
I came across something interesting yet bizarre as I was browsing around.
Read on. There's even a video after that.
India resident Sanju Bhagat always had bit larger stomach, but he got extremely worried when it suddenly started growing bigger and bigger. Thirty year old Sanju Bhagat was rushed to hospital and his stomach condition was diagnosed as an stomach tumor. To a doctor's surprise it was something extremely different and very unusual. From the birth Sanju had his twin brother living inside of him like a parasite. This phenomenon is extremely rare since parasite twin brother has to survive by leaching on its brother’s blood supply. This bizarre medical conditions is called fetus in fetu and it occurs when a fetus gets trapped inside of its twin. Doctor Mehta who was operating Sanju Bhagat said: "First, one limb came out, then another limb came out. Then some part of genitalia, then some part of hair, some limbs, jaws, limbs, hair."

Financial Crisis, no problem!
You know, I totally respect people who already had their future mapped out from the moment they are borne. Hmm, depends on circumstances, I suppose. I attended this scholarship workshop whereby they brought in a panel of scholars who told us all about getting the scholarship and how to tackle these interviews.
I was very impressed. At this age, I'm still wondering what to do with my life while these people; some even had their future mapped out as early as secondary school. Saying that, some only thought of it as they were going for these interviews.
There are so many jobs out there but I really want something which is interesting. You might be wondering if I am insane or anything cause I am on my path to being an accountant and instead of going through that route, here I am thinking of a career path.
I don't know. I just wanted an interesting job.
HMM. Working with the Cullens sounds nice. Scratch that. Me and my twilight obsessions. Here's some of the weirdest occupations out there. Some are more amusing that the others.
Fortune Cookie Writer
Yes, we've all wondered who the heck writes those fortunes in English! Finishing a take-out Chinese meal isn't only full of MSG, but those delightfully witty pieces of advice that people are so quick to heed.
snakeIf you ever get bitten by a poisonous snake you'll be grateful these people know how to work with animals. They are responsible for getting the venom out of snakes to make the anti-venom. Be honest, which one of you thought that snakes had actual milk glands?
Going through baby chicks and separating them according to sex. I hear this job is pretty easy, if you just play bad 80's music and set things up like a 5th grade dance, they separate themselves.
Apparently this guy gets to sit in a field full of ostrich and make sure that they didn't peck each other to death or get stolen. Any job where you can sit down, read a book and do absolutely no work is always a plus, but I have heard that these birds' behavior can get a little aggressive.
Note taker for college students
This is particularly prevalent in medical schools but I wouldn't mind getting one to help me take notes while I sleep during lectures. Hold on, if these medical students are not listening to classes and they graduate to become doctors and people see doctors when they are sick... ...
There is a German condom manufacturer who is seeking students from England and Ireland to be condom testers to road test its new range of condoms. They then require feedback regarding the "comfort, pleasure and all round performance" of each condom type. So it is true when the company stressed that all of its condoms have been tested for quality.
I personally like the idea of being a condom tester. It just sounds kinky. In the light of this financial crisis, I guess we don't have much of a choice eh? So, why not just have fun!
What I live for. TWILIGHT.
AFTERRRRR SO LOONNNNGGGG, I finally met up with Hel and Shandy.
Lunched at Banquet and then watched TWILIGHT. OMGWTFBBQ! I totally love this movie. So much so, that I have watched it for three times already. FINE! TWICE in the theatres and once online. But nevertheless, it's a feel good movie. I already cannot wait for new moon to be out.
Which reminds me that I have to finish reading up TWILIGHT; a book that I bought like one year ago and still not touched yet.
For those who have yet to watched it, here's a synopsis.
Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) has always been a bit different, never caring about or fitting in with the trendy girls at her Phoenix, Arizona high school. When her mother Renee (Sarah Clarke) remarries and decides to move with her new husband to Florida, and Bella decides to go live with her father, Charlie (Billy Burke), in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she doesn't expect anything to change. Then she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a boy unlike any she's ever met. Intelligent and witty, his piercing eyes see straight into her soul. Soon, Bella and Edward are swept up in a passionate and decidedly unorthodox romance. Edward can run faster than any cheetah, he can stop a moving car with his bare hands, and he hasn't aged since 1918. Most importantly, he's a vampire. Like all vampires, he's immortal. He doesn't drink human blood (they're vampire "vegetarians"), which is rare among the vampire population. Instead, they go on regular "hiking" trips, where they feed on prey such as grizzly bears and mountain lions. For Edward, Bella is the thing he has waited ninety years for - a soul mate. But the closer they get, the more Edward must struggle to resist the primal pull of her scent, which could send him into an uncontrollable frenzy. And what will they do when James (Cam Gigandet), Laurent (Edi Gathegi), and Victoria (Rachel Lefevre) come into town and James sets his sights on Bella? Will true love prevail when Edward is forced to save her life and conquer his thirst? The true question is, When you can live forever, what do you live for?
I rest my case. :)

Masturbation lead to her death.
Oh my god, whats this world coming to. Even LOBSTER is used, its a freaking gross and sick story. Might not be suitable for the weak hearted.
One morning around 5am, 22 year old Susan Balucci woke up with a painful need to urinate. At first she thought that she had diarrhea, but when she stood out of the bed, she realised its urinary pain. Very similar to diarrhea, but out of the wrong hole.
She sat on the toilet bowl and her vagina erupted into the most horrific messy farting sound anyone could have heard off. She continued to push and she screamed for help.
When the medics arrived, they found her unconcious lying on the floor wearing nothing to her bath robe. Running down her legs were stream of brown n green syrup. The medic transfered her to the stretcher, but when he grabbed her left leg, her vagina was exposed and a creature no larger than a finger tip wormed its way out of her genitals and landed on the floor with a wet popping sound. It was a mud shrimp gasping for water while flipping itself back n forth.
The ENTIRE toilet bowl was filled with baby brown mud shrimp flipping and splashing at a furious pace.
Her death was caused by combination of shock and severe head trauma, she stood up and she saw what had happened, she went into shock and fell, smashing her head on the toilet bowl.
It was believed that 2 days before the accident, she bought a live lobster. While lying in the tub, she gently inserted its tail into her vagina to get pleasure. She held a lighter under the lobster' face, so as to cause it to flip its tail violently.
The lobster had crapped eggs into her cunt while she was torturing it. Her womb was the perfect PH balance to grow the shrimps and thus over the night, they hatched and it began doubling in size every ten mins.

We are family!
First of all, happy birthday to the three brothers, NAUFAL, SAFI and KHALIS!
I certainly had fun at the birthday party today at my sister's place. Being emcee to a bunch of kids was definitely unexpected especially when my command of simple english and malay kinda sucked. But anyhow, I did pull it through and thank god they liked it. That of course, albeit the fact that at one point of time, I was so clueless and point blanked about what to conduct.
The food was good and the company was good.
It was the time to catch up with my family as I'm always cooped up with school. It was indeed a nice feeling.
Now that next week is fast approaching, it's time to worry about my projects yet again.
Yesterday, had an outing with the SPIN@ACC peeps. Alright, only half turned up so yeah, quite a bummer cause it would have been great if everyone would have been able to make it.
Thanks, Salleh, Tina, Chong Hui Xian, Joyce, Jacqueline, Sebastian, Joey for coming down. Yes, even Joey, even though he didn't bring any present. HAHA. Kidding! And Joyce, who pangseh-ed us barely half an hour into our outing. MEH.
We first started out at Borders' Coffee Bean for our meeting. Then, headed to Seoul Garden. Can you imagine how delighted I was? It's been AGES since I went there and the first thing on mind was to gobble down all the food. I felt like a total glutton. Fine, whatever, I am a glutton. Halfway through, Joyce went off cause she couldn't take all the fried food as she had some caroling.
After that, we flipped a coin to decide where we were gonna head. It was either between Party World and bowling. And so, the coin decided on Party World. Went there and scratched the idea when the price was damn steep. So, we headed to (finally!) Marina Square to play bowling.
It was fun! It was nice to see everyone's unique style of bowling. We had Salleh's need for a reading time before he bowls, Joey's gay bowling, Tina's totally destruction for the bowling lanes (and her happily standing on the waxed bowling lanes and jumping! LOL!), Jac's drunkard stupor when she wants to bowl, Huixian and her refusal to bend when she bowls, Sebest's very lucky shots and all. It surely was a laughing situation.
We also had an exchange of gifts. Huixian got my gift and she complained it was cheapskate. Hers was worst! $2 paper clips! LOL. I got a gift from Jac. I honestly dunno how to describe it but it was cute. So, thanks for the thoughts that counts.
After that, Joey and Salleh wanted to play pool which in the end, the latter pawned overall. Huixian and Jac were playing their DS Lites and the former pawned. Looks like the Chairman and Vice Chairman are pretty good at their own field eh?
To wrap the day up, I went shopping and finally bought my bag at foreFOURskin and so, I was pretty happy.
At the end of the day, I was so damn tired, I headed home, bathed and slept!
AND WOKE UP AT 3 TODAY.
Now, I gotta get ready cause my family members are all at my sis' place to celebrate my nephews' birthday and I'm running late. So, later, people!
Tuesday, December 16, 2008
Today, me, Jacqueline, Dennis and Salleh for the photohunt. Basically, the clues given were pictures of a place and we had to go and find these locations. Over these locations, we were then made to do "tasks".
It ended up being tiring but it was fun. With all the nonsense, who wouldn't be?
The funniest thing was that....
WE WON FIRST. LOL. And we managed to complete all the five rounds. I think some teams didn't managed to do so. BOOOO. Only five teams in total though.
$20 worth of co-op vouchers; which means 5 bucks each.
I wouldn't mind doing it again though. It was pretty challenging somehow. :)

Last two days was totally the worst day to happen for this year.
FEVER. COUGH. FLU.
At one shot? I couldn't believe my luck.
Somehow, I think I have been punishing my body far too much and hence, God is punishing me with all those sickness. Teaches me how to treasure my body eh?
Anyhow, BA GOAL camp was pretty fun but I was bummed out that I couldn't go for the Monday session. It sucked! The idea of me not going that is.

I know. You all probably wondering how did CLAW went right?
BAAAADDDDD. Honestly, ask anyone who sat for the paper and they will give you the blank look. I was very, very scared to even look at the paper cause it was only a page which contained TWO questions. In total, only 40 marks. How bad could that be right?
I looked at the questions and that was the first time I spent the 10 minutes reading time wisely. It was killing me.
I skipped question 1 and then did question 2a only to find out that after that question, I didn't know how to do the other questions.
GOODBYE AD. GOODBYE A. And welcome a pretty much a pass grade. Well, at least I hope I would pass. SIAN.
Anyhow, revision for Tax2 seems to be fine so far. I need to wrap up revision soon cause tomorrow I gotta start on FMGT. The horror!
WISH ME LUCK!

Smart for all, dumb for me.
ECONS IS OVER. Test 1, that is! Think about it. I go for my dip plus class every week and yet not understand ANYTHING about it at the end of the class. OKAY FINE. Not that I don't understand. I usually sleep for the first two hours and then understand the last hour. Sorry Mrs Teoh. You're a good tutor and all but after a long day of classes and then THREE hours of econs, I'm allowed to fall tired right?
Anyhow, it's over! It's passable yet not B-able. Sadly, that's the standard given to us cause in order to get exemptions for econs at NTU, we need to get at least a B! OH WELL. D quite okay right? :D
Now, the next step is to study claw. That is another module that is killing me.
WHATEVER. I'm gonna watch my two hours of UGLY BETTY now. And then, probably study CLAW cause I know NUTS about it.
FOR THOSE TAKING AUDIT PAPER TOMORROW, GOOD LUCK!
Tuesday, December 2, 2008
HAHAHAHA. This week, being common test and all would be filled with VERY short posts. Can't be helped really cause I'm so lazy to post a lot. So, these few days would be consisting of really short short posts cause this is my blog and I can post whatever I want right?
Anyhow, today, met up with Charlyn and Salleh. Charlyn was studying audit/claw while Salleh was finishing up his elearning. As for me, I had to go for my econs revision cause I seriously have yet to study anything about it.
So, we finally went home at 8 after hours of studying, distraction and plain gossips. Hence, on the way to the school bus stop, we asked Charlyn why she snorted like Sue yesterday. Her reply was -
"I GOT BROCKED NOSE!"
LOL. That was funny enough. Till then. :)
Ngee Ann Polytechnic 2nd Year Accountancy
If you want to know more about me, read my posts. It should give you a clue to who I really
