School is out for me (I hope) and I’ve been having a wonderful time…

Looking for a job.

Well, I didn’t exactly have to look for it since I kinda had it waiting for me a few weeks before I sat for my main exams.

I got the call to interview right after my last paper as well, which kind of left me in mild shock while I was talking to the HR lady.

Either way, my way of celebrating my last paper was to head straight home because Mia still had another paper a few days later and it just didn’t feel right to celebrate then.


In the meantime while I was stressing out over the interview, I met up with Azfar and because we have literally nothing else better to do out in town (except buy comic books), we crashed at my place and played really retarded miniclip games like this rock climbing one:


He enlisted into National Service two weeks later so there went one of my best buddies ):

When the day of the interview finally arrived, I was so touched to have at least 5 people wish me good luck. Of the five, two woke up earlier than me (LOL) to leave me a message.

I turned up half an hour early to Marina Bay Financial Center and decided to sit down for coffee at Cedele. Then had this promotion of 1for1 pastries that came with a free coffee. I don’t know what was going on then, but yay to $3.50 teabreaks!


After trying my hardest not to cuss my mouth off at the receptionist that was pulling a long face at me for some reason, I was ushered into the waiting area that had this really rad view. I thought all was going well until…

I was sat down to be interviewed by three ladies in suits.
Like woaaaah there, I did not just walk into a court hearing, right?

Talk about getting judged, they were pulling all these fake tight-lipped smiles at me and starring me down as if I were dirt. I mean, sure, I haven’t even graduated yet but the least you could do is not appear to be a bunch of complete cunts.

That aside, I managed to get through the interview without running out the door in tears and with my tail between my legs and ranted to my friends about how horrible it had been. It actually came to a point where I wished they wouldn’t call me up again because they made me feel shit-stain scared of my job scope.

Then my friend told me that some or maybe all interviews went that way and that it was a test of confidence when it came to meeting people who weren’t so friendly. That made me relax a little, though I was still nervous about my job scope. Shh! Don’t tell em!

I was in a better mood when I got home, mainly because the interview that I was stressing over for forever (like a week) was over and I could finally get on to stressing over my cosplays for STGCC.

But first, lemme take a selfie.




It was also the day my niece, Reina, was allowed to have an entire Vitegen bottle to herself.


I’m not sure about you guys, but when I was a kid, my mom used to scare me into not drinking it because she said it was filled with ‘adult vitamins’.

I am now turning 20 and the only ‘adult vitamins’ I know of is viagra and horny goat weed so guess who’s life has been a lie.

Also, here’s a very act-cute picture of a Pikachu impression.


The next day, I followed my dad to a dinner gathering he has with his friends annually. We like to joke that he only brings us (sisters and now brother-in-law) so that he could show us off while the only reason we follow over is because the food is good and there’s free (and good) liquor.

Come to think of it, it sort of is.
With pretty little to do, my sister and I decided to relive our childhood a little by sitting on kiddy rides and taking pictures.




Not to worry though, the rides weren’t moving. It (the rides) was placed right next to a really crowded coffee shop filled with my dad’s friends so I don’t think he would have appreciated our crazy antics.

Then came one of the best dishes of the night, the Kong Ba Pau.
It’s basically stewed belly pork wedged between a soft and steaming fluffy bun.



I ate more of the buns (without the meat fillings), though. You have no idea how good they are by themselves.

In the midst of waiting for my results and boredom, I decided that it was about time I got a haircut.


I guess I’ll have to start remembering which months I get my hair cut. Normally, I rely on the school term to cut my hair, which is once every 4 months or so, after my term tests, mains or when I’m getting ready to start the new semester.


^ Rawr. That’s how over grown my hair was.


My hairstylist helped with cutting off an inch of coloured hair while giving my hair a few more layers. Even my fringe got a few layers!

I went home to find my Freddy Krueger glove in the mail and was so excited but it was a total letdown because the glove was too big for my hand and basically didn’t align well with anything.


It does, however, scare the crap out of my niece and she runs away everytime my dad puts it on.

I’m keeping the glove around as a prop right now, in case Reina needs to be scared into submission or something.

And finally, a picture of what really goes on in the house:


I had expected my life to become less complicated now that I’m done with school but boy, was I wrong. If anything, I’ve learnt that I’d actually had a shit school life and my life is about to get worst. I just hope that I have things to look forward to while I’m suffering.

Yours Truly,
Off the stupid list and into the FIYAH

Study Week Logs

The following is of a constantly updated log of when I was studying for my final paper.
Or just attempting to study myself to death, now that I’ve read everything again.


Monday, 18 August 2014
0800hr GMT+8
I awaken from my slumber and my body is aching from scaling high walls the day before. I can barely move my fingers to clench into a fist around my phone but I try and try. Eventually, I managed to swipe the snooze button.

0825hr GMT+8
I swiped the snooze button too many time and am now late. My limbs are aching and I can barely pull my tank top over my head. I end up swapping my facial cleanser for toothpaste in the bathroom.

0835hr GMT+8
I’m eating buns I bought from AMK Hub the day before. All of them taste weird, I fear I have eaten something wrong to start my day off. The cream cheese was sour.

0850hr GMT+8
I exit the bathroom. In confirmation, I have indeed eaten something bad and managed to lose my entire breakfast within 15minutes. How the food traveled so fast through my system, I don’t know.

0905hr GMT+8
Missed the bus and next bus is in 15minutes. I inform study buddy that I will be late. I think she is still sleeping.

1015hr GMT+8
Despite being late, library is fairly empty. I set up my laptop and get to work.

1105hr GMT+8
Study buddy, Mia, arrives. She suggests lunch and we agree on going for instant meals downstairs as soon as I finish my first topic.

1245hr GMT+8
I start microwaving my meal.

1250hr GMT+8
I drop said meal (mac and cheese) on the floor of Cheers.

1255hr GMT+8
I buy an egg mayo sandwich and blueberry muffins.

1300hr GMT+8
I find out that both food items suck.

1400hr GMT+8
Chubby Bunny challenge is initiated mid-study. I managed to get up to 10 Chubby Bunnies. My cheeks hurt.

1600hr GMT+8
Study buddy has given up on studying. Boyfriend is coming to pick her up at 1700hrs.

1730hr GMT+8
I am about to give up studying myself when this happens.
I decide to press on.

1935hrs GMT+8
My hand can barely grip my stationary and I am going insane without human contact. I have started giving my notes personalities.
20140819_095223 20140819_095231 20140819_095242 20140819_095250 20140819_095256 20140819_095302 20140819_095307 20140819_095312 20140819_095318

2000hr GMT+8
The library is closing and I must go home. I almost finished Topic 2.

Tuesday, 19 August 2014
0800hr GMT+8
I think my body aches more than yesterday But I managed to get out of bed.

0845hr GMT+8
I am not hungry so I packed bread for school. Spread: Peanut Butter and Nutella.

0905hr GMT+8
I board the bus on time this time round and realized I have no idea if my study buddy is coming down today.

0945hr GMT+8
The study area is rather crowded today. I manage to find a table and set up my laptop.

1034hr GMT+8 
Study buddy inquires location through text, then called me because I did not reply. Meanwhile, I am caught for eating my breakfast in the library.

1037hr GMT+8
I get started on the remaining of Topic 2.

1136hr GMT+8
Finish Topic 2 that happens to be misnumbered, which explains why I studied the wrong chapter for the last quiz.

1145hrs GMT+8
We leave our seat to have lunch at the Applied Science school, leaving Private Kevin to guard our belongings.

1247hrs GMT+8
We walk over to Cheers because I was craving lollipops and came across a Hello Kitty Series My Melody figure. I plan to buy it as a little reward to myself on Friday after my studies.

13000hrs GMT+8

1315hr GMT+8
I begin revision on Luminaries Calculation questions.

1331 GMT+8
I have embarked on Topic 3.

1500hr GMT+8
‘The temperature rise of the water passing through the condenser should be 5°C with a difference of 5°C existing between the condensing temperature and the temperature of the water leaving the condenser.’
What the cheese did I just write down? I don’t know anymore.

1524hr GMT+8 
Screw Compressors. I agree.

1545hr GMT+8
I’ve already spelt ‘Refrigerant’ wrongly 5 times and am craving hugs, cuddles and warmth- so basically just my bed.

1606hr GMT+8
My black sharpie runs out of ink but I am prepared with another on hand.

1735hr GMT+8
Mia makes a Whatapp group called ‘The All SEC Rejects’ for Mia, QQ and I to arrange meetings easily.

1846hr GMT+8
I thought I was tired. Turns out I needed to pee so I toilet break-ed.

1914hr GMT+8
I finish Topic 3’s Theory and have decided that I am done for the day.

Wednesday, 20 Auguest 2014
0532hr GMT+8
I wake up suddenly from a bad dream and reach to check my phone for time and messages. I get caught by the room mate and promptly gets scolded for being up so early. I retaliate with as much aggression an early morning silence can take before forcing myself to sleep. I only manage to get to sleep an hour later.

0820hr GMT+8
I get to legally wake up in my own house now. I’m still extremely tired and the morning is chilly but I manage to get out of bed. Breakfast was leftover noodles and chicken from the day before. I’m bringing Quadratinis’ for snacking later.

0945hr GMT+8
I reach school earlier than expected. The tables are very empty so I get to pick the table most centered power outlet.

1013hr GMT+8
I get started on Topic 4. Observe that my exercise book is running out of pages. Study buddy also texted to inform that she would be late as she isn’t feeling well. I tell her to have lunch at home and decide to have my Quadratinis’ for lunch instead.

1138hr GMT+8
Finished half the bag of wafers and am very full. My music is making me feel a little sad but I don’t feel like changing it.

1327hr GMT+8
Mia and QQ arrives. I’m half way through Topic 4.

1415hr GMT+8
Mia teaches QQ how to draw a pad. The starting shape is a peanut shell. They are waiting for me to finish Topic 4 before going to lunch.
Mia also remarked ‘If anything (in the book) has anything to do with be ‘intelligent’, remember it if not it will outsmart you.’.

1435hr GMT+8
We go for lunch.

1535hr GMT+8
I attempt to change my calculator’s battery.
But I failed so Mia took over.
We were going too slow so QQ tried as well.
Then it turned out that I bought the wrong battery. FML.

1610hr GMT+8
I finish up the last of Topic 4 and start on Topic 5.

1700hr GMT+8
My hands are shaking as I write my notes. I’m not sure if it’s the coffee or if I’m coming down with something.

1825hr GMT+8
I didn’t notice the time go by. I’m barely half way through Topic 5. I’m freezing and drying heaving.

1905hr GMT+8
I almost hit the half way mark. I burped and I could still taste breakfast. I’ve dropped my stationary involuntarily 4 times in the last 15mins. If this log is posted without other days logged in, you can safely say that I am dead.

1915hr GMT+8
My saliva started tasting like melted aspirins so I wash it down with water cooler water only to find that said water tastes like chloride/pool water.

1947hr GMT+8
I finally hit the half way mark of Topic 5. My head is pounding so I think I’ll stop here for now and continue tomorrow.

Thursday, 21 August 2014
0730hr GMT+8
I wake up after at least 8hours of sleep. My toothpaste tastes funny and I remember that I should be checking my temperature. I’m at 38.5°C but I don’t feel too horrible so I prepare for school.

0830hr GMT+8
Strangely, I do not feel hungry so I skip breakfast for now or at least till I get hungry later.

0900hr GMT+8
I’m in the bus. I’m sleepy but I can’t seem to fall asleep. Reminds me of the time I was on meds.

1006hr GMT+8

I reach school and remember that study buddy mentioned that she’s sick as well so I may be by myself today depending if QQ decides to come down. I also watch a couple videos before I get down to doing anything productive. Mental note to buy new blades for the penknife.

1026hr GMT+8
I get started with the last of Topic 5.

1306hr GMT+8
I finally finish Topic 5 and realize that it’s lunch time. I’m not hungry and even if I may sometime be, I’m not sure what to get. Maybe I’ll get coffee when I go down to buy stationary for my tutorial revision later.

1336hr GMT+8
Study buddies arrive and we head down to have lunch and I have a slight meltdown when I end up missing both lifts while I’m walking over.

1341hr GMT+8
We reach the ground floor and I finally get to sun myself after freezing over in the library courtesy of my fever.
Yes, I do realize that my left arm seems a tad broken but it’s not.

1350hr GMT+8
Definitely delirious at this point, Mia (sick) and I (also sick) take really stupid pictures.

1400hr GMT+8
We sit down for a light lunch. None of us are eating alot because QQ is going for his NAFA run while Mia and I don’t really have much appetite. I bought coffee too but for the first time ever, I couldn’t finish it.

1439hr GMT+8
We (or at least just Mia) attempted to change my calculator batteries again.
A 5 year old battery.
Mia was kind of amazed with the inside of the calculator. I was too, except I was too tired to react to anything.
I am blessed to know that my calculation will last me another 5 years even though I don’t count on using it anymore after my final paper.

1422hr GMT+8
Mia and I head down to print past year papers.

1445hr GMT+8
Mia asks me if I would ever turn lesbian after I show her my girl crush on instagram. I reply saying ‘No, I only want to be the guy I want to be with because birds of a feather flock together.’
She proceeds to ask me if I would still go for a guy who turns out to be transgender. I say No, ‘because the sex would be weird’.

1509hr GMT+8
We return from our paper printing and I start on Tutorial 1. Within 5 minutes, I manage to misspell ‘Tutorial #1′ as ‘Totorial #1′.

1615hr GMT+8
QQ is done with his NAFA retake. He didn’t manage to get a silver and Mia said he looked sad and defeated when she met him at the bookshop. I am also reminded a little too late that I was supposed to get blades for the penknife.

1743hr GMT+8
Was finishing Tutorial 2 when Mia snapped at picture of the current war zone of a table we are studying in.

1923hr GMT+8
I’m done with Tutorial 2. Where did the time go? On the bright side, I think my fever broke.

1931hr GMT+8
I start on Tutorial 3. Surely 9 questions wouldn’t be too hard.

2008hr GMT+8
I’m being chased out my the librarian. I’m still at question 8 of Tutorial 3. I guess I’ll pack up and finish up the last of it tomorrow.

Friday, 22 August 2014
0800hr GMT+8
I get up and for the first time this week I don’t feel sore or fatigued. In fact, I’m in a glorious mood and my hair looks fierce.

0815hr GMT+8
To wake myself up more, I download an app called Timberman from the app store and play it long enough to beat a highscore a friend posted on Facebook the day before.
I can safely say I’m pretty addicted to it right now.

0835hr GMT+8
I settle down for breakfast. Am famished. Glad my appetite is back.
Roomie also packs Banana-Nutella bread for me to bring to school because she noticed that I was looking sad and pathetic the last few days.

0905hr GMT+8
I arrive downstairs just as the bus arrives. Today seems like a good day.

0945hr GMT+8
I reach school and as I adjust my backpack, a strap gives way and I drop my bag (essentially my laptop) on the ground. I know I should have screamed but instead I’m trying to keep myself from laughing.

0955hr GMT+8
Sudden realization that my laptop is already in itself, dying, and that it may not turn on later on.

1000hr GMT+8
I find out, to my relief, that it still works.

1015hr GMT+8
I finish the 4 slices of banana-nutella sandwiches in my bag and realize to my horror that I’d just eaten 7 slices of bread within a span of 2hours.

1024hr GMT+8
I get started on the remaining questions of Tutorial 3.

1146hr GMT+8
I realize that I just spent an hour attempting to figure out how to solve a calculation question.

1222hr GMT+8
I keep hearing vibrations from my table. I’m not sure if someone is pulling some kinky prank on me or if I’m finally going insane.

1235hr GMT+8
I’m can’t seem to do an advanced question from Tutorial 3 so I’m skipping it and moving on to Tutorial 4. Mental note to ask Mia if she knows how to do it or if we can text someone for visual answers.

1344hr GMT+8
Study buddies arrive. I’m half way through Tutorial 4.

1434hr GMT+8
I finish Tutorial 4 and am moving on to Tutorial 5. Meanwhile, Mia points out the damage on my laptop.

1502hr GMT+8
We go for lunch. I have cup noodles and Yuzu juice.

1535hr GMT+8
I’m not sure if I’m still hungry so I go back to Cheers to see if I want anything.

1612hr GMT+8
Instead I smuggle stuff up to the library for Mia.

1614hr GMT+8
I get back to work on Tutorial 5.

1655hr GMT+8
Mia attempts to flip me off my chair and I choke on a chocolate pretzel.

1805hr GMT+8
I finally finish Tutorial 5.

1902hr GMT+8
Finished MCQs for one past year paper. Am taking a short break before I move on to theory and calculation questions. But first, lemme take a selfie.

1908hr GMT+8
We start theory questions.

2010hr GMT+8
Mia is still here with me but her mother is coming to pick her up. I guess I’ll leave when she does.

2025hr GMT+8
Mia’s mom is here so I guess I’m going.

Saturday, 23 August 2014 (SUMMARY)
One of the days that I allow myself to sleep in. I wake at 12pm and play afew rounds with the PSO team but I start lagging and retire to my quarters (give up), which is where I find a bunch of random things in the middle of my room.

Procrastinating my studies, I attempt to teach a friend Chinese from scratch (not that I’m that good, it’s just that I know so little, there’s so little to teach), much to my delight and amusement. He still can’t say ‘fish’ in chinese, Yu-er.

Finally, I start studying/ doing past year papers at 3pm till 6.30pm, where Roomie suggests we go down for dinner.
I only get back home at 8pm, where Roomie goes and watch a couple of movies in my sister’s room while I proceed to strum a few songs on my guitar and scare myself shitless with Pewdiepie videos (DreadOut got me).

I was half way through watching the Silent Hill PS4 Playable Trailer when my internet disconnected me from the internet, which was a good thing because I was already so spooked and had to look at pictures of puppies on Tumblr to get to sleep.

Sunday, 24 August 2014 (SUMMARY)
I wake up at 12pm thanks to my brother-in-law harassing me and only manage to have lunch at 1pm because I lazed around in bed. I go back online to PSO to play with the team but my lag is still there (probably because I dropped my laptop a few days ago) so I stay at the lobby to chat with other players till I get bored.

A while later, my friend starts playing Resident Evil 4 on share screen and I decide to start doing past year papers because he kept shooting the zombies in the crotch and dying after because he ran out of ammo.

At 6.30pm, I leave the house to meet the Mother and only get home at roughly 8pm to wash up and get back online.

It seems that my lag is here to stay because I managed to lag in the lobby of PSO (normally I do not) as well. I complain to the team and they start recommending laptops for me to change to. Suddenly motivated to research, I start looking at laptops online (mainly Acer, because their new laptops looks really good).

I am also reminded that I have to get my Freddy Krueger top within this week or I won’t make it for STGCC and I start stressing out at 11.00pm over it till I finally find it on Carousell.

Monday, 25 August 2014
0815hr GMT+8
I wake up with the song ‘Anaconda’ by Nikki Minaj stuck in my head and decide it is a good day.

0835hr GMT+8
I have breakfast, Mr Bean pancakes, and forget the flavours I bought the day before. Roomie informs me that Dad is ordering KFC tonight for dinner. I guess I know what I’m having for breakfast tomorrow.

0955hr GMT+8
I reach school while study buddy is on her way. She’s having a sore throat so she’ll have to watch what she’s having for lunch today.

1030hr GMT+8
I set up and start looking at definitions to memorize for tomorrow.

1130hr GMT+8
I start grilling Mia.

1300hr GMT+8
We go for lunch and I have instant noodles with instant egg again. Afterwards we buy chocolate (I think my period is coming again. TMI but I don’t care.) for mugging and head up.

1335hr GMT+8
Mia successfully remembers Kyoto Protocol.

1541hr GMT+8
We just get to Topic 3 revision.

1728hr GMT+8
We are half way through Topic 4!

1829hr GMT+8
We are done Topic 5 revision and decide to head back home early.

All the best to us!


Friday is Forever

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.
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.

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.
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.
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.


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.
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.
Good as new and ready to wreck havoc.

Or just, you know, pay attention in class.


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

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.
Do you think I suit Gryffindor? I always thought I’d be a Ravenclaw. Where’s a sorting hat when you need one???
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.


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

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,
