I won't be blogging as much... I intend to engage in a grand-scaled scandalous affair with my FYP for the next 2 months, and we know that everyone keeps mum about scandalous affairs, don't we? =P

It's about time we go out in a glorious bang, I say.

V-day Flowers

Buying Valentine's Flowers? I got good deal.

But website not up yet. Also not ready to take pre-order. And prices still subject to changes.

Settlers of Catan

My siblings, and, of late, my motley gang of JC friends, have gathered interest in spending quality time rattling 2 dice and breaking up in vile curses over the improbabilities of their outcomes ("That's impossible! How come you throw a 12 again! --censored-- "), all in the good name of wholesome family entertainment.

We are playing Settlers of Catan, a game where you gather resources via dice throws to build roads, settlements, and cities to win the game (when you will be 'hailed by all as the Lord of Catan' - but we never do carry out the pompous [and ridiculous] ceremony of obeisance though it's part of the rules.)

My brother has the basic set and we've gotten the expansion set, so we're good for 3-6 people without the need of going to the expensive Settlers' Cafe. Do tell me if you're interested in playing the game - we can take some time off our busy schedule to whoop your sorry ass.

But if you're good, you can whoop mine. =)

DXO is going down

Friday night. 10+pm. There were more staff in DXO than customers - the ratio was such that personal concierge service was possible, and irritating waiters keep coming to your table to ask if you need anything else. And yes, they swoosh away your glass less than 5 seconds after you are done with it.

Oh boy, they are going down.

I pity the DJ who spins for an empty dance floor.

I found a letter in my father's drawer - looks like a suicide note (if my chinese does not fail me in comprehending it) by someone else.

Makes me wonder what actual story lies beneath it.


燕! 曾经爱过我也给我爱过的人,
丧钟在我的耳际敲响了, 人生竟是那么苦闷乏味的一回事.
我想了又想,终于决定了: 我要自刎, 一了百了, 回去那无忧无虑的老家!

生不带来美满的愿望, 死又何必带去半点的悲哀?
我于是选择了大海, 让那浪花泡沫来洗尽尘世间所染上的污秽.
我的倔强,我的好胜, 可以鼓舞起我的勇气往下一跃, 了结我的余生, 乘着今天早涨的湖水.

你收到这封信候, 我更没有理由恨你.
总之来生有绿, 我再不会为金钱而葬送我的一生.

Tea Leaves

It never fails to astound me, how tea leaves have such an aggressive expansionistic nature when brewed. One moment they occupy less than 0.563% of my nalgene bottle, the next moment they have taken over the entire kingdom.

2) Losing my memory
3) Finding that there is no one for me to live for.
4) Finding that there is no one living for me.

6) Final Year Project. This is the scariest of the lot.
7) Public speaking.

6) Playing minesweeper

What's up these few days::

Dinner with Beatrice and Jiahui! Weird combi, indeed. =)
Frank, Jiahui, Beatrice
Wallace and Gromit with Tjio. Did I say that it is a great movie? =D

Was down at the wholesalers' on friday checking out prices and placing tentative orders for the upcoming event in February. It's about time, yes.

Spent the rest of the day at Thomson Plaza reading a book, with a large sunflower for companion - because HY called up and didn't want me to visit (probably mesmerised with her k-dramassss...)


You never know when someone will suggest going to Attica, which will end you up in a pathetic (and unsuccessful) attempt to mingle past the Attica bouncers, leaving you with no other choice but to join other friends for a glorious time at Chijmes dancing outrageously silly dances.

Lack.of.sleep. zzz...
Went to town for a chat with old friends.
