Friday is Forever

image
Whaaaat’s up guys! Since I have been doing nothing but school (and PSO2) these few days, I’ve decided to write about my times in school because I wanna upload all these overdue pictures. #whatsnew

Also because it’s 1am in the morning and I can’t sleep so… *shrug*

Let’s do this thing.

8am lessons. I have them on Fridays, which automatically make them ‘Thank God I Managed To Wake Up For Class’ instead of ‘Thank God It’s Friday’ because let’s face it, I was probably up till 3am the day before, swearing to myself that I’ll have one additional coffee for every hour I sleep later. The problem with that form of logic is that I have to wake up for my coffee first, so you can imagine my utter regret when my alarm goes off on Friday mornings.
image
image
image
image
You must be wondering though, for such a horrible timing for lessons, why such sunny photos?

Well you see, my 8am lessons are design classes, which means I have to be all artsy fartsy and go around taking pictures or drawing stuff. It also means I get to have a MacDees breakfast first if I get there before my teacher.

On occasion, these lessons become surprisingly interesting, like that one time I went up to the roof of my school for the first time ever.

image
image
image
My Fridays are also rather eventful, and by that I mean me actually going out to somewhere besides home, school and the comic book shop with friends, because I have no life.
image
image
During these outings, I go to malls I haven’t visited in maybe half a year and discover -to my utter glee- that there are new dessert or bakeries opened.

For the above picture, I’d discovered PJ&J CINNAMON BUNS. It is in caps and bolded because it is very important information. Ironically, I have come to forget the name of the shop, only remembering that I bought it at the basement of Bugis Junction.
image
image
A photo that I thought was cute but both my friend and I decided that IT SHOULD NEVER be posted to instagram because someone could just photoshop my face onto some AV girl’s porn flick.

ON THE FLIP SIDE

This is what happens when 8am lessons aren’t as interesting. Judging by how much coffee is on my table, I probably slept at 2am the night before, to wake up at 6am the following morning.

Or a few hours later.
image
image
And of course, a middle finger to the poor studious-looking-but-really-isnt groupmate who sits behind us (fellow groupmate, Mia and I).

But like I’ve said many times over, coffee is magic. So give it a few minutes (like half an hour or something) and BAM.
image

Good as new and ready to wreck havoc.



Or just, you know, pay attention in class.

*cough*

As much as I have little need to wake up early for anything, there comes my next earliest class.

THE 10AM CLASS

Basically, the 10am class is a PW class that no one really pays attention to unless there are lab works or assignments. Till this date, I’m not sure what I’m supposed to take away from it and I’m finishing school in less than a month. (Insert shrug) At least I can say that it has been relatively painless.

Pictures below are of our last official lesson together with our teacher, even though I never really realized it was the last lesson till people started getting all sentimental and taking pictures with the lecturer.

For me I just shrugged and thought ‘this could go onto my blog’ and took pictures. It’s not like I had anything better to do then anyway.
image
image
image
image
And of course, since it was the last lesson (that I didn’t notice was the last lesson), Mia and I decided to treat ourself to this thing called ‘BlackBall’, which really is this awesome thing that came from Taiwan. When you eat it warm it tastes like holding hands on the beach and when it’s cold it’s like being at a party you can’t can mortally drunk at. Everyone should try it.

Also, thank you Taiwan.

The pictures were a must because my hair looked fierce and Mia’s hijab’s colour was totally rad.

Random hamster face photo.

On an entirely random note and also because I’m too lazy to write a separate post,

I finally went Hari Raya Visiting this year!
*confetti*

I haven’t been able to go because I never really had any close malay friends, NOT because I have no friends, okay. ):

In fact, I have awesome friends who are total potter heads with enough merch to dress me up for an impromptu casual cosplay.
image
Do you think I suit Gryffindor? I always thought I’d be a Ravenclaw. Where’s a sorting hat when you need one???
image
Anyway, I went to Mia’s house and ate and ate and ate and ate and ate till I couldn’t anymore because malay food is soooooo gooooooood and home cooked ones are even better because they are infused with family love.

We ate and watched How I Met Your Mother and Friends With Better Lives in Mia’s room, while I then proceeded to spill Fanta grape on my top and a patch on my jeans on two seperate occasions.

On the bright side, I found out that my top was rather waterproof, which kinda awed me, until I saw it start to slowly seep into my clothes, to which I practically snatched the tissue from Mia instead of taking the picture I said I wanted.

I would have taken a picture of it, but I thought of how I would rather have a tumblr-worthy picture and have ants attack me on the bus or something or not have the picture and stone on the bus in peace. Let’s just say I detest anything with more than four legs and I treasure my time spent on long lonely bus rides.

My jeans on the other hand, was totally cool with the fanta grape and soaked it all up so I ended up with a sticky knee when I took off my jeans at the end of the day. It was…really, really unpleasant.

OH AND

I tried this tidbit called Chocolate Almonds and IT WAS THE BOMB I tell you. I would look forward to Hari Raya just for them. #thingsineedtoremembertoeatyearly

image
At the end of the day I was really tired and really full. Submission week is coming up next week and it really helped me relive a lot of stress.

Moral of the story: Keep going out with your friends because one day they will HAVE to invite you over and then you can eat awesome food.

Wish me luck for submission week,
Cherie

Poison Ivy hits EOY’14!

10491145_10202069678056003_4307208852352852385_n

It has finally happened. I managed to cosplay my favourite character of all time.

Poison Ivy

It took me alot of time (and money) to get this suit out but it’s finally out!

I wore it to Cosfest D’Marquee’14 to test out the entire costume to see how it’d fare after long periods of time. It’s a good time I tested it out, because the colours didn’t photograph well under direct sunlight, looking more turquoise than dark green. Other friends also said my costume didn’t scream ‘IVY‘.

I was dejected for a while, then decided that I could always save the costume some way. That was about 48 hours ago, where I was busy running to town to get ivy vines for the modification.

What modification, you say?

THIS.

1210408820_1480225962224463_4356413487871555582_n

Basically I added ivy vines and a flower. The vines hurt my arms and scratched my stockings but WOW it made a difference to how I looked. Sure, a few people mistook me for another character (one from LoL) but I consoled myself with the fact that there was a LoL booth on site.

THE WALL

For some reason there was this LoL booth there (actually it was just a board) and it toally mislead everyone to think that I was this chick

I don’t really think my costume really looked like her’s, but I wouldn’t blame anyone for thinking I really were her.

MOVING ON.

There was another wall. A wall more relevant to Poison Ivy. I shall call it,

THAT WALL

1 2 3

I found walked by this green wall that I thought was very relevant to my course and cosplay but there was this out of bounds sign all around it so of course I did not heed it’s warning and went over the boundary. Duh.

We made a new friend too :D

Afterwards, we went over to the fountain area where I’d taken my last Sailor Mars cosplay at to camp and I had a little outdoor shoot, something I was a little nervous about because my costume didn’t photograph well under the sun the last time round. Strangely, I thought it turned out fine.

1 2 34

The colours turned out great, which got me really happy and confused as well. I was under really bright sun after all.

But that’s for the photographers to figure out, not me, so I totally took advantage of the miraculous lighting and-

While trying to get into character, this happened:

Flower1
It was supposed to be something like:

‘Come here, take a rose and sleep forever with Mother Nature.’

But my friend said ‘Why are you trying to reenact that Snow White scene with a rose?

And somehow it turned into-
Flower2

‘Hey lil’ girl, you want a rose? I swear it doesn’t smell like chloroform.’

Moment. Ruined.

When it got too hot we moved into the sheltered event area to watch this extremely kawaii performance by Nico Nico dancers from Japan and I decided to check out how my costume fared under darker lighting.

We decided to change scenery when I’d psychoed myself that I could move around in my heels again. It was also when I finally met DC/Marvel cosplayers!

We also ran into our friends and suddenly I started poking people in very inappropriate places
Poke1

By the time we finished all this cam whoring, it was 2pm so we went out to the open area where we found automobiles. You know, the ones with Gskins I cant imagine anyone driving out.

While walking around, I spied this SWAT guy trying to backstab someone with this really pathetic looking bush so I stopped him and tried to teach him the real way of being a ninja.

It didn’t really work out.

So we moved on and bumped into one of Ashley’s friends who had this really huge prop/weapon that he let us play with.

The prop was really heavy D: So we gave it back to him and were on our way again, this time to the actual barrage to get good photos with the scenery.

Naturally, I got distracted.

And my friends also commented on how I walk funny in heels. Just so you know, the vines were also pretty itchy, okay D:
10570515_1480230528890673_4359419534032234857_n
The walk up was long (especially in heels) but we finally reached the top.

I also had to walk on tip-toe because my heels kept poking into the grass and made it so hard TWSS for me to walk. Not to mention I felt bad for the grass. #feelbadCherie

In fact, half way I gave up and sat on the grass where we started taking more photos.

BUT FIRST.

I actually thought we were done for the top of the barrage then I spotted Another wall. Therefore I must very creatively name the next wall-

ANOTHER WALL

1 2 3 10505289_1480232565557136_346735044170545325_n

Originally, I wanted only two pictures from this background but someone asked for a picture so I obliged. It was only after the pictures were taken when my photographer commented that I looked a little wild in the other guy’s pictures. She thought it wasn’t a bad thing, so I thought i’d include it *shrug*

Also, another butt shot. You’re welcome.

After all these shoots, Ashley realized that he/she was running late to another function so he decided to go back from there so we all headed back.

It was pretty early to go, but I never really stayed at a convention for an entire day before, especially if it’s outdoors.

Before I go,

Incoming very random pictures of us doing nothing productive at all.

Remember to water your plants and I’ll leave you with this.

Good Charlotte – Dance Floor Anthem

She’s going out to forget they were together
All that time he was taking her for granted
She wants to see if there’s more
Than he gave she’s looking for

He calls her up
He’s trippin’ on the phone now
He doesn’t want her out there
And alone now

He knows she’s movin’ it
Knows she’s using it
Now he’s losing it, she don’t care

Everybody put up your hands
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love

Feel the beat now
If you’ve got nothing left
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love

Back it up now
You’ve got a reason to live
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love

Feelin’ good now
Don’t be afraid to get down
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love

He was always giving her attention
Looking hard to find the things she mentioned
He was dedicated but most suckers hate it
That girl was fine but she didn’t appreciate him

She calls him up
She’s trippin’ on the phone now
He had to get up
And he ain’t comin’ home now

He’s tryin’ to forget her
That’s how we come with him
When he first met her
When they first got together

Everybody put up your hands
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love

Feel the beat now
If you got nothing left
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love

Back it up now
You got a reason to live
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love

Feelin’ good now
Don’t be afraid to get down
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love

To the beat, to the beat, to the beat
You got nothing to lose
Don’t be afraid to get down

We break up, it’s something that we do now
Everyone has got to do it sometime
It’s okay, let it go
Get out there and find someone

It’s too late to be trippin’ on the phone here
Get off the wire, you know everything is good here
Stop what you’re doin’, you don’t wanna ruin
The chance that you got to find a new one

Everybody put up your hands
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love

Feel the beat now
If you got nothing left
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love

Back it up now
You got a reason to live
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love

Feelin’ good now
Don’t be afraid to get down
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love

No, no
Now you know what to do
So come on, get up, girl

The day all my friends left me

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And here is an extremely late post by yours truly. As you can see from the pictures, I’m a whole month late so you can’t blame me if I have no idea what to write for this post anymore because I can barely remember what I did yesterday. I’ll see what I can manage.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The main reason why I’m only writing about this now is because all the pictures were in my friend’s camera and he wasn’t one to upload albums onto Facebook so I had to physically collect the camera from him. That, and we always forgot to remind and bring the camera when we actually met up.

So here are the pictures, finally. In between sudden death runs in Phantasy Star Online 2, I’d decided that the photos were all pretty self explanatory. By that I mean:

Hey look at me. I’m in a graduation gown that may or may not be mine because I may or may not be graduating (in my case, no), taking pictures with anything and everything in my school because it’s the last few official moments that I’ll be here and I’m sentimental and shit.

Of course I wrote the above paragraph because I’m being lazy and unimaginative. This is a lot of pictures to caption after all. Not to mention a tad bit painful to talk about since it’s my friends, who were from the same batch as me, who are graduating. Without me. Alas, I am not bitter as some people may wish me be, because that only means the guys would be shipped off to National Service and the girls would have to find jobs, further theirs studies or be absolute slobs. Honestly, I don’t think I’m missing out on much. Sure, I won’t get to take pictures with my friends, but do you still remember the pictures from my Secondary 4 prom?

Oh right, there weren’t any.
Sorry~

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Either way, I did have a lot of fun at the ceremony, given that it wasn’t mine. The free lunch and dinners I’d shamelessly looted from the buffet was surprisingly good and I managed to save cash for the three days I went down to have my friends rub their certs in my face. Fuck ya’ll, I went home with something after all.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I would like to caption this picture:

I have a graduation gown and bear. I am better than you.

I kid, the pretty lady hasn’t graduated yet and both of them are really nice to me. Other people… I don’t know.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I found it rather funny how the owner of the camera only showed up in the above picture. I guess that’s just what happens when you’re too busy graduating and being all important and stuff.

I ship this couple like crazy. They’re Azfar’s mom and dad and they are THE SWEETEST COUPLE EVER. They totally deserve a fanclub like wow.

Cheryl, the center of attraction.

Afterwards, we started taking pictures with both parents, mostly because I didn’t want to risk doing something inappropriate in front of them so the only way I knew how to avoid such circumstances was to include them into the havoc we were wrecking.

I’m gonna miss these guys loads too. We met at a camp in Year 1 and started this unofficial club called the Temasek Poly Ghost Hunting Club (TPGHC) because we went around the school in the middle of the night investigating the school’s horror stories. It’s been just the three of us through the years and I can’t believe I’m sending these boys to become men already! Not to mention be their cover dates when their OCS dinner comes around. Ah, the role of being ‘that girl friend’ never ends.

FUNNY STORY: 

This guy is a lecturer, he just isn’t MY lecturer. He still thinks that he is, up to this day. You see, in my friend’s last semester, I started crashing his Monday lecturers religiously, making him think I really was, even though I must have seemed like a total delinquent, a student of his. I even went for his very last lecture where he gave out tips for their final exam.

Just recently, he waved at me on the concourse and asked me why I haven’t graduated so I told him I was a repeat student (which I was) and that I was taking my remaining modules now making this my last semester. Not exactly a lie I guess.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And that was pretty much my graduation. I’m saying this because I don’t plan on going to my official one, especially if it’s going to be in the afternoon because pictures would be a torture and there is no way in hell am I wearing such a (literally) hot gown for pictures that are too overexposed. Not to mention I’d probably be working by then and wouldn’t be bothered to pay money to rent/buy a gown, let alone go down for the event at all.

 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

I’ll leave you with this picture. I like to caption this:

‘They say the only reason why his graduation gown is so big is because it’s full of secrets.’

Graduation is overrated,
Cherie
