Block test is over! well, almost anyway. i'm left with 1 bio spa paper on monday and after that i'm done! i know, those who dun take bio are thanking those who do for that extra day of break rite? haha luckily bio spa doesn't need much studying since its skill c and d so i'm not mugging through my long weekend. anyway, now that block test is almost over, i feel like i've suddenly got a lot of time on my hands and i dunno wat to do with it. i feel like doing something, but i also feel like doing nothing, either. so confusing rite? haha and to prepare myself for the end of block rest, i went to the library to borrow some books, but i dun feel like reading them... and there's nothing on tv! actually. i'm too lazy to on it and check la, and i also dun feel like watching anyway. so i'm basically drifting around and doing nothing. besides coming online, that is. but there's nothing to do online too. so i'm juz playing games like minesweeper and spider solitaire over and over again. anyway, i have to go eat le so.... gotta go! and are we going out on monday?

Yo, we had quite a good turnout for the auditions for the ppl we were looking for. The results will be out next week and to those who made, Welcome to SAJCband and to those who did'nt, life goes on...
Anyways, i was scaning thru some pics we took and realized that we've not had a batch pic in J1 which included everyone. I've the one after SAJS performance but that one does'nt have Ying Hui and Stuart. So Mel, or any Adobe acrobat pro, wanna edit the pic and add their faces???

hi, i've been a naughty boy skipping tests,sch like loads last term. I'll officially strive to not skip sch this term and start working more concistently. now that the exam week is coming to an end Im so much more in the mood to blog and all. Speaking about exams, i barely took any papers, some sibling of mine passed me a fever,flu,cough etc on fri last week. thanks to her, i could barely do any studying and stuff.
Took the Gp paper, skipped the maths, took chem. I'll be having Physics and Chem sPa but i won't be taking both tmr( still sick ) . Went studying at tampines Macs in da morning with my eastern study pals Jason and Ada, barely managed to do anything cos i was feeling giddy and all. Then at 3, we met up with Shaun and Jasmine to go forPhysics tuition. I left halfway during tuition cos i died of giddiness. yup. ( Doc says its the haze too ). Went home and Dad came back from some job thingy from batam and brought back good food. Had my fill and rested after which i surfed a whole lot online and downloaded a whole lot of Jc/sec syf03 recordings. Watched American Idol and gotta admit that every single contestant is fantastic. after that, i decided to kill time by reading tons of blogs.read deons blog and felt nostalgic. don't worry, the last few months will be a truly memorable one.
im really looking forward to tmr's auditions and hope that we'll get whoever we're looking for. not looking forward to the possibily of being caught for not taking exams even though i've an mc. Really looking forward to this sats band prac. glosz will be coming down and stuff. and in the afternoon he wants us to go to the conference hall and role play as adjudicators ( write out comments,t stuff like that) for his Sec sch bands and those affiliated. about 8-9 schs will be performing their 2 pieces, choice and set, as if its the real syf.
2nd intake is coming and i can't wait for the new batch of ppl to come in. new faces,ppl etc. Really looking forward to this year's jcSyf and giving an immaculate performance of Merry widow. and if we do get gold with honours, it'll make the trip even more meaningful and an oppurtunity to show the world what we can do in July at the durian, when the band is at tis peak. Gosh i miss being in top 5, the sec 2 days, the sense of satisfaction,pride, knowing that our hard work was culminated into something fantastic.
..next week sounds like a whole load of fun esp with the Samba thingy cummin up and the j1 orientation and all.
basically this new term, new challenges are gonna come come by and its how smart and hard we work which will determine how well we'll do.
Can't Hardly Wait!

blogging in hk. cool weather here. but i was so sick yesterday that i really wanted to die. if u all want to know the details of my sickness, go read my bloggie. :) anyway, didnt do much this time round. just travelling here and there almost everyday. i've come to a point to realised no matter wat type of novels the bookshop has, i need to choose the thickest of all. coz most of my time in hk is spent on travelling. it's really impossible for me, yingwen, to really do nothing but stare at the driver hoping he'll get my hint to drive faster.
deon toh, i miss u. MUACKS!!!
after this, i must type kokhoe i miss u. coz he'll say not fair.
after that, i will say addi i miss u. coz i will think not fair to him too.
den i will think of many pple like kumz, ah min, aloo, enru, joey fung, yaoyao, melmel... ... ... ...etc.
so many pple. i bet they miss me too. my crazyness in band. ahahahaha!!!!
whoa... so many jc1s have their own bloggies. not bad. haha. anyway, lazy pple like kokhoe, pls update ur bloggies can??? and those without, pls go set up one. anyway, friendsters offer blogs services now. if i am not wrong huh?
and after not blogging here for so long, kinda miss my batch pple. pple like layney, tau, cia, jadey, angel, ash, jianzong, ziyen, peg, jas... ... so many of them. maybe because i am in hk tat's why. but well, doesnt matter. let's all go out when i come back okie? muacks!
and specially for huimin, what hp straps u want? mmm... long or short? wat brand? wat pattern? or rather wat cartoon-nies u want?? ahahahaha... must tell me okie?

People, deons here...
Im taking a break now from exams and since i had nothing to do i decided to read the blog from the very 1st entry. It brought back many memories and suddenly i feel damn sad. Jc2s, our time is gone. Many good memories suddenly appeared once again... damn sad la...
Remember the time when we were doing our promos? It was damn troublesome and we were struggling and all and waiting for time to pass and for promos just to be over... I can still remember the joy of finishing the last paper! It was like a huge orgasm haha. And also getting more than i expected for promos was the icing on the cake. Suddenly i had confidence in my studies again.
Remember the time that we were preparing for open house and spring cleaning. It was the best time i had in band, everyone was having fun bonding and going crazy while painting doing the files and prezzies and spring cleaning was damn good also. Remember the time andre and addi had to transfer along with kumz and they were going thru a very rough patch. Remember the times we quarrelled and also the times we had fun. Remember when kumz went for his operation and everyone (almost) was there at his house that very day to visit him. It was realli heart warming.
Remember the time where the girls went to sentosa and got themselves burnt? And the past jc2s struggling with their a levels and in a blink it was gone? Open house night where we stayed over and did the whole sch upside down? And the very next day it was more like BAND OPEN HOUSE? hahah. it was freaking good! When Mr COCKROACH invaded the band room with his accomplices? aha The times when we went to town to enjoy ourselves. ok the many times! The time when half the band was down with flu Talking about open house, the times when we art attacked jie and the yellow room of kok! The times when i KENA THE ART ATTACK.The time we had WHATSOEVER THINGS. The couples getting together the concerts we did. the Chalets that we had. Everything was just so fun.
Anyway, time passes really fast and somehow i just feel sad. After so time we have to say goodbye to our brothers and sisters. And reality is some of us may never see each other after we leave jc ever again. Lets realli cherish our brothers and sisters and never let go of each other. When u meet trouble in sch, its only us for ourselves. who else will help you!? haha. Anyway u people are great and i love u all big and small. ROCK ON!

hEey ppl my com is fixed!! :)
ooh my first entry ever since my com was back in my room sweet room ha...i came across this Carrot, Egg and Coffee Bean article today, don't know if any of you have already read abt this but to those who have not...here goes...
A daughter complained to her father about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as 1 problem was solved a new one arose. Her father a chef, took her to the kitchen. he filled 3 pots with water and place each on a high fire, soon the pots came to a boil. In one he placed carrots, in the second he placed eggs and the last he placed ground coffee beans. He let them sit and boil, without saying a word.
The daughter sucked her teeth and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing. In about 20min, he turned off the burners. He fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then he ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl.
Turning to her he asked."darling, what do you see."
Carrots, eggs and coffe,"she replied.
he brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. he then asked her to take an egg and break it. after pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg.
Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. she smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. She humbly asked."what does it mean father?"
He explained tt each of them had faced the same adversity, boiling water, but each reacted differently. the carrot went in strong, hard, and relenting. But after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. the egg had been fragile. its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior. But after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened.
The ground coffee beans were unique however. after they were in the boiling water, they changed the water.
"which are you,"he asked his daughter.
"when adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?"
Back to reality...haha its to whoever is reading it right now...
How bout you? are you the carrot tt seems hard but with pain and adversity do you wilt and become soft and lose your strength?
are you the egg, which starts off with a malleable heart? were you a fluid spirit but after a death a breakup a divorce or a layoff have you become hardened and stiff. your shell looks the same but are you bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and heart?
or are you the coffee bean? the bean changes the hot water, the thing that is bringing the pain, to its peak flavor reaches 212 degrees fahrenheit. when the water gets the hottest, it jus tastes better.
If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and make things better around you.how do u handle adversity? are you a carrot and egg or a coffee bean? ")

Its 1045pm on a sat night like 2 days before block test. WTH am i doing online rite. OK honestly im here to blog! haha ya rite. Im here to listen to some music btw. Anyway i dun have a blog so i like to crap here. But. If you people noticed the blog originally wasnt for annoucements and stuff, it was for the guys (and girls) to write their feelings and thoughts here! Yeah and it was also created during our promos study period to help relieve stress. so here i go...
Kinda worried for block test cause the words just dont seem to get in my head. anyway im done with 1st round revision which is usually very brief and helps me get the main picture 1st. Guess wad, SAJC notes and humans teachers suck (wads new huh). Other schools have fantastic notes like ACJC RJC and CJC. They are getting damn good results too, the teachers spoon feed them with notes. Like in the context of A levels. WHY NOT!? lets worry about getting into uni before worrying whether we can cope in UNI. Anyway after block test im trying to get all the notes from those schools and start studying like on a more consistent basis. other schools had their block test before hols and look which idiotic sch is having theirs after. Seriously i screwed my prac crit for lit already so dun be surprised if i get a triple F or something like tt. just hope i can really get down to it and do it rite. was kinda lucky for promos and i duno if the luck can last. It really sucks sometimes when u know you have to study but your body's going "your arse is too heavy u cant move" and your minds going "ooohhh the computer/tv/sofa/drums/piano/guitar/magazine/ball/*blank*". ok im just too darn LAZY. no wonder im a , quote from ms * "your a waste of space!" Yeah i can feel the pressure but somehow im already numb towards it and the feelings freaking sick. im just waitin for the darn exams to end then i can LET GO and RELAX for a moment and get my mind back into place. its an overworked machine in life. I just had the engine running since my performances. Its been like performance performance performance block test, for me. Anyway enough about block test. i just waitin for the block test to consume me then shit me out so i will be free again. and suddenly. IM SICK OF SAJC, it was too much of an illusion. I think i would have enjoyed ACJC. but oh well. too late. haha. just me bitching if u dont mind.
suddenly sajc is dead.
no life, the teachers are rigid and cant teach or use their heads.
the sch activities suck big time
how can i not whine
and the sch is too damn strict
and the cafe is filled with shit
expensive food the facilities are dying
the j1s are getting boring
the counsellors are not fantastic
honestly even the morning assemblies are getting boring and slapstick
my friends kinda agreed that the sch is going down and we were kinda decieved by the 1st 3 months outlook. i mean the teachers dont even treat us like adults and only insult and live day by day. wtf?
Anyway wanna party after block test peeps? guess we will.
Btw we are doing a samba item for the j 1 orientation and need about almost the whole batch to perform.
anyway the time now is 11pm and im off. wanna see more ppl blog man. its getting kinda dry.
