The desire to excel. The passion to dedicate. The determination to see it through.

How pQ and JAIME had picnic at Sembawang Park! I had to clear my excess CNY food!

I finally got to play with pQ's two dogs.

We (Science FCG) went to Nat's condominium to celebrate Nat and Nel's 21st Birthday! They're twins!

The act of dropping your cards in a game is called a 'Jaime'. I did it so many times during Bluff that this act is now named after me.

Today marks the beginning of the
Year of the Titus!
Food is in abundance as usual. Money is in abundance (when you have difficulty folding your wallet in half, that's when you know...) Chinese New Year is a good time to brush up your dialect/mandarin and conversational skills. It forces you to make an extra effort to smile and be courteous all day. When you start holding long conversations with people you meet annually, you know you're old.
I was forced to play with my niece, Tiffany! (Don't get me wrong.. I have every intention to entertain her, I just don't know how... Jaime is the youngest in the family.) Everyone else was offering to give her rides. However, she approached me and said, "Auntie Jaime! Jump! Jump!". In other words, I had to lift her from the ground high into the air (She is 12kg by the way. Jaime is strong but not THAT strong.). I thought that one ride would be enough.
After a few more rides by Justin, Jansen and Julius (and while everyone except me was once again calling her and offering her a ride), she turned to me and said, "Piggy back!". Jaime was twisted by the arm once again and gave her a piggy back. This is the first time I played with such a tiny kid! (To all my folks who know me: See? I'm not a paedophile. I think the minimum age I can 'play with' is 3 years younger than I am.) What can I say? Kids like me, but I don't know how to entertain them. Any one holding a course on entertaining infants and kids?

I've never chopped and sliced so much food in my life. What a tiring ordeal it is to prepare for Reunion Dinner.

I've just finished watching The Man In The Iron Mask. What courage!

Friday, January 27, 2006


I shopped at Orchard with Shirley to get Nat's present. Town is so crowded!

Thursday, January 26, 2006


I ate lunch in NUS today! I meant, I actually paid for it. I did not bring food from home. Well, there's a simple explanation to that. I met Chau King for lunch at YIH!
It is a sleepy day. I should sleep. I should study. I should wake up. I should sleep, wake up and then study. Good night.

Jimmy treat us to "zi2 cha4" today! He owed us the treat for S.U.M.! The food was good! Training was good too.

Tuesday, January 24, 2006


I declare Tuesdays (at least in Year 1 Sem II) Cedar Day! I get to see pQ and Sandra for lecture, tutorial and lunch with Sandra and run with pQ at MacRitchie! What a CEDAR DAY.

Monday, January 23, 2006


I studied a little at Medicine (M5 I think) today! This is what I see when I study. The place is very windy and quiet. Very conducive for studying and chilling out!

Sunday, January 22, 2006


We (Regina, Ben H and JAIME) went shopping for Nat and Ben C's present today! We went town which was crowded as usual (It's Sunday).

For Sunday to live up to its name, it was sunny even though it drizzled a little.

Saturday, January 21, 2006


I went for my first air pistol competition (out of NUS) today! It was the Singapore Universities Meet. Did quite well. Our team got 1st!
The firing of guns in the range was really loud and it made my heart jump. When I got out of the range, my face was red.
It's Estrella's (my cousin) 21st birthday! Going for her party now!

Friday, January 20, 2006


My stomach is shrinking! I did not eat lunch today and I could not finish my dinner.

Nothing to disappoint. Just to impress.

That's all I have to say, that's all for today.

Thursday, January 19, 2006


Today was a stressful day due to tutorial registration!!! I had a real headache after my dinner at NUH.

Wednesday, January 18, 2006


I started doing some school work today.

Had air pistol training but I didn't perform well today.

Tuesday, January 17, 2006


Had GEK1511 lecture with Sandra and pQ today. Tsk tsk. Hope they don't bully me too much! (Hints to pQ!) pQ wrote a mirror image of 'pQ' on my arm during lecture.

I went climbing today! Wong Hui wanted to try climbing. Met a new person today, Shirleen from TJC, climber of course. The other people like Sandra and Liying were there too.

After that I went to run with pQ. Today's run was good. The weather was great (it drizzled at the start). I ran quite fast today considering my current standard. Ran around 7km in a timing of 40.00.09 min. I met my target of 40min!!! That's about 5+min per kilometre. YAY!

Well, it's all in the mind. My mindset was to run well today. I was thinking about that in the bus towards MacRitchie. For the first time since a long, long time, I did push especially in the later part of the run. The problem is that I walked in the first few kilometres. However, I had my runner's mentality while running today which was excellent. I even had the runner's high after the run. Kept being hyper and irritating. SHIOK.


To pQ: More to come man! Let's conquer the NUS slopes.

We met Mr Chiam Daohua at MacRitchie and went Bishan S11 to eat dinner with him! Haven't seen Stamp! for a long time...

I sold my MP3 Player today! I had no use for it. It was a free gift from buying my laptop!

  1. 256mb
  2. Reads MP3 and WMA
  3. Recorder
  4. USB
  5. FM Radio

I sold it at $25. Rather cheap right? I just wanted to get it off my shelf fast.

Brought my dog, Titus out for a walkin the evening. Usually we run, but I was feeling lazy so we walked. After that, I gave him a shower since the weather was sunny today!

I played netball with Science FCG this morning.

We had SIFST Gathering 2006 and I think it was a success!

Friday, January 13, 2006


Today is one mad rush! Finally finished all my work for the SIFST Gathering tomorrow!

I went air pistol training. Today, I could perform (except for the Mickey Mouse I shot).

Thursday, January 12, 2006


I went to climb with Sandra in NUS during my break!

Today is a busy day!

Wednesday, January 11, 2006


I felt very rich today! I went shopping with Liyun (NUS FST) and we bought over $500.00 worth of goods! It's meant for the prizes for the SIFST Gathering this Saturday though. Basically, we were spending money that was not ours and it felt great even though the prizes will not be ours!

  • Tuna and cheese pasta sauce (canned)
  • Curry flavoured Twisties (This was added together with the pasta and sauce, making each bite flavoursome and crunchy!!!)
MJ invited us (Shuming, Sandra and JAIME) to watch a dance performance at Victoria Theatre. After that, we had supper at Lau Pa Sat. Met two boys (they were selling satay) and they told Sandra I was cute! (I was daydreaming when they suddenly stood in front of me and hyperly asked me if I wanted to eat satay. Shocked me!)
Today is my 2nd brother's birthday.. Happy 29th birthday to Jannie!!!!!

Met the Science FCG people to cycle at ECP today. It was raining and at one point in time, we were drenched. Anyway, Deuter's waterproof bags with raincovers can be trusted.
Anyway, the 4 sandcastles were destroyed, left with one man standing!

Thursday, January 05, 2006


I went to MacRitchie to run with pQ today! Ran along Lornie Road because we wanted to sun tan. Ran up till the expressway and then ran into the forest (reverse guys route). We found 2 small streams!

Wednesday, January 04, 2006


I spent most of my time in front of the computer screen to bid today! I wanted GEK1511 (Introduction to Computing) and the bids kept jumping. Finally, pQ, Sandra and I were allocated the module at the price of 400 points! This was so stressful!
I drove to Singapore Polytechinic to settle some of my work for the SIFST Gathering 2006.

Tuesday, January 03, 2006


I finished reading 2 books today! One was completed at 1.30am and the other was completed at around 5pm.
The 2 books are:
  • Acceptable Risk by Robin Cook
  • Nights In Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks

Monday, January 02, 2006


I met up with pQ and 2 guys (Kokwai and Lloyd) I knew from long ago (end of my Sec 1 life).
We went to slack at Changing Appetites at Marina Square. pQ and I shared a strawberry oreo cheesecake and an ice chocolate drink.
We went to Han's for dinner where I ate the sirloin steak set dinner!
By the way, Lloyd looks so different with his long, golden hair! Just like Lion King! Kokwai looked like he shrank. He became shorter or rather, more stocky.
