Over

Finally, some quiet and peaceful time of my own. Every major thing is over for me and I'm really, really, really glad. I need a break eventhough school just started like three weeks ago.

Three weeks zoomed pass so fast, it gets harder and harder to catch up. But, Hall Play, softball, swimming and Convening Committee duties are over for me! :) I've been waiting for this day to come for such a long time.

Hall Play was awesome! I really enjoyed myself while watching the play. The cast did a great job and I'm proud to be a part of Hall Play. The sets turned out really pretty! :D I was in Set Decor so of course the sets deserve some credits! :P

My duties for IHG are over! As a result, I'm burnt. But, my friends say that I have a nice tan, wonder if I should take that as a compliment or not? Hahaha. :)

On a less brighter note, Suyi, one of my dearest friends are leaving. I've been sulking for the past few days because of this. The thought of not having her around is really saddening. She has always been the jolly and noisy one in our group and without her, things will be a whole lot quieter.

I never thought that I would feel this way if she leaves. I mean, I never thought it would pose such an impact on me. Guess, I was wrong. Over the past six months, I think all of us grew a lot closer. It's sad to know that she has to leave us although I don't want her to leave.

However, I am also happy that she finally gets to pursue what she really wants eventhough not-wanting-her-to-leave overpowers this happiness. But, I can't be selfish because this is her life and I will support her no matter what she does. Everyone knows that this incredible girl wanted to pursue Medicine all along. She missed out so many golden opportunities and this recent opportunity, shouldn't be let go.

I'm sure a lot of people will miss her. SIGH, all these sadness are going to make me cry. Suyi is a bright girl. I know she is strong and I believe she will be alright in Aussie despite her past traumatic experience. I have faith in her.

I can go on and on you know but I don't want to, because there are some things that can't be penned down easily.

I really wonder how will school and hall life be without her. I'm sure Cui Shan feels the same way as I do or maybe, even worse.

Siow Suyi, I wish you all the best there! :) Don't forget us yah and you MUST visit us whenever you return. We will gladly make time for you! Keep in touch!

P/S: Hall life really does make bonds grow stronger.

Hey Batter, Better Swing!

Hello there! :)

Week 2 just started today and I hope it's not gonna be as crazy as Week 1! I had quite an eventful week last week, I must say. :) It all started with fundraising for OCIP Cambodia trip! We are going to Cambodia in May for some voluntary work! :D We're gonna teach the kids over there English, educate them about hygiene, build a well (that was the main purpose of fundraising, building a well costs USD 500!) etc. Oh, we're not providing manual labour to build a well of course (although it might be fun)! We're getting the appropriate people to do it! :)

This was all very last minute because we weren't aware that KE Bazaar was gonna start on that week and we had like a few days to prepare! Thank God for some lovely seniors such as Dang Ni (whose Mom is a sweet supplier) and Shireen for helping out. Suyi, Cui Shan and the both of them bought a lot of sweets from the supplier in Woodlands (Dang Ni's mom's friend). :) So we sold sweets and also some stuff from Cambodia! :) The event went on for three days! I had to pull out from the cheerleading performance on the last day because I had sports trainings and other commitments. Besides, it seems almost impossible for me to memorize the dance steps in a few days with such limited time and at the same time go for cheer practices.

Anyway, we went all out while fundraising, trying to convince people and getting them to buy sweets from us! It worked most of the time! :D


Pearly, Siew Wai and I.


Siew Wai, Suyi, Cui Shan and I. :D We're the fundraising girls except Siew Wai. She's the photographer.


After fundraising event was Inter-Hall Games (IHG) for me! I participated in softball and swimming. In addition to fundraising during the day, I had trainings at night. At the same time, I had Hall Play Set Decor work to do as well. Can you imagine the horror? O_O I couldn't wait till the week was over.

Our competition was last Saturday and sadly, we lost. :( It was a good experience for me though since I was never really into sports and also, most of my team mates were freshies. It was our first time for most of us.



My first softball jersey! :D


Batter, better swing! Heard this so many times from the opponent. -___-" They were just trying to taunt us. Pfft, like I was affected. It's all about being strong mentally yo! ;)


There was one time when I was batting and I had two strikes, another one and I'm out, the opponent team kept saying "Two down, batter, you better swing!". Hell yeah I swung but unfortunately, they caught the ball too fast and threw it to the first base catcher as I was running towards it. OH WELL!


I was the catcher throughout the two matches against two different halls. There was one time I had to catch a ball because a runner was running towards me (which was home) to score a point and the ball was thrown by an IVP team mate of mine. So it was a very strong and fast ball. I caught the ball! BUT.. the impact was too hard and my glove came off together with the ball and fell on the ground. DAMN! But, some of them who were watching said that they thought the runner hit me or something. I can't remember what happened. :/


So happy, don't know why, hahaha.


KEVII SE7ENS!


The next day (Sunday), since I'm a part of IHG's Convening Committee, I had to be in charge of Touch Rugby. I was up very early in the morning, busy getting players to register and making sure everything goes smoothly. Luckily, I had a bunch of people who helped me. :) Towards the end of the game, I had to walk to the swimming pool because I was gonna swim for the Novelty event. This event is a special one. Why? Because it's actually not a competition! Points would not be counted for this event. So it doesn't matter if you swim first or last, makes no difference. Hahaha.

I swam as fast as I could (not very fast though) anyway because the adrenaline was too high! I was too pumped up to swim, hahaha. It was a 10 x 50m relay and I was the only girl in my team who did freestyle. The rest did breast stroke cause they were more comfortable with that. After finishing the race, I felt so relieved and happy that everything was over! :)


KEVII's swimmers!

I didn't eat the whole day and I thought I could finally have my dinner after swimming but I was wrong, I had F Block Comm meeting, oh gosh. I thought we were gonna have a normal general meeting but it was all about cleaning up the lounge! We shifted furniture, vacuumed, swept and mopped the floor. Then I had Hall Play curtain call practice. OMAIGOD, at that point of time, I was telling to myself, "Kill me already!".

Thankfully, I survived the famine! :)


My hall has new candy machines that look like this! :D :D :D SO HAPPY!! Seeing them colourful candies, I WANNA HAVE THEM ALL!


That wraps up my post for this time. I don't know when the will the next post be. Till then, adios amigos!

Hocus Pocus

Google


Word of the year 2010 - FOCUS.
I will and I must. :)

---

Less than a week more till I leave for Singapore again! Bleh. There are certain things that I look forward to and there are things that I dread about. Oh well, the perks of life right?

Got my Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B vaccinations today! Had to take these injections for my Cambodia trip in May. I would have to take another two doses of these injections again in February and May respectively and I have another two types of injections to take - typhoid and tetanus.

Wow. Luckily, I'm not afraid of needles. ;)

I wonder what's in store for me for my second semester in NUS. Thinking about it makes me feel tingly all over.

Anyway, I started packing already and needless to say, my luggage is almost full! I have not fully packed yet and there are still a lot of things I wanna stuff in my luggage. Gah.

No worries, mom will help me or at least, find a way to stuff everything inside! :D

Alrighty, shower time for me, then it's Desperate Housewives! :)

Whaaaat? I won't be getting my daily doses of tv series anymore when I start uni! :(
