Flouting The Dress Code

July 30th, 2004 Comments(10)

What I wore to school today:

What the tutor said:
"Excuse me, what manner of dress is that? Has anyone confiscated your matric card yet?"

I always dress like that. He never seemed to notice. People are acting weird today. Like the pair of airheaded girls who seemed to think they can squeeze into one seat on the bus. Or perhaps they think that I'm so XXS, I wouldn't mind sharing half my seat with them.

They sure got a earful.

[edit] Oh, I'm wearing contacts again. Happy. :)

Yeah, I'm 18

Happy 18th birthday to me. Happy 17th birthday to Nalani. :)

I can't seem to find the materials I'm supposed to study. So I guess I shall hit the sheets soon. *Yawns*

Siao Lecturers Part 2

July 27th, 2004 Comments(4)

Marketing lecturers sure have a sense of humour. Extracts from a past year Consumer Behaviour test paper:

Question 1
Mr Pok Ee Mon has been recently appointed as the Marketing Manager of Sure-Cold Aircon. He is thinking of engaging Phua Chu Kang (Gurmit Singh) to star in a new Sure-Cold advertisement.

Question 2
Mr Chim Pan Zee is shopping for an air-conditioner. He believes that Sure-Cold is cheaper than either Carrier or Sanyo, with Carrier being the most expensive.

WTF is that? Pok Ee Mon?! Pokemon?!!! Chimpanzee?!!! And what's with that idiotic picture of Gurmit Singh? I swear I'm just going to sit in the exam hall and laugh all day.

Turning 18

I'm turning 18 this Friday. Not that it would make much of a difference. I can drink and smoke. :P But I don't smoke, and I already drink. So there. And I have exams next week. :(

Anyway, I shall post my wishlists for the heck of it. Not that anyone will care. :P

(Clickety, Clickety)

I desperately want the WTF shirt. ;)

Eye Talk

I want theatrical lenses! I don't even have lenses now. :( Sighy.

Excuse my little anime talk, but I saw on a particular forum that someone got lenses made to look like this:

Beyond cool. And good for scaring people with.

(That's the Sharingan of Sasuke from Naruto, if you didn't know. :P)

During My Absence...

July 21st, 2004 Comments(5)

A conversation between Yume and I yesterday:

(reverie) While you were gone, I got tanned, my contact lens tore, and I got corneal abrasion.
(Yume) How the hell did you manage a corneal abrasion?
(reverie) THE FUCKING CONTACT LENS!
(reverie) It hurt like a motherfucker. And I was seeing double for 2 days.
(Yume) Ouch.
(reverie) Oh... I also have flu, I think. Stuffy nose and loads of phlegm. And a headache everyday.
(Yume) See? Things go all to hell without me around.

Pretty much sums up all the things that happened to me while I wasn't blogging.

I hate my glasses. *Cries* And my friends think I'm trying to act demure by wearing glasses to school.

Coming From An Agnostic

I know the bible better than some Christians do, I discovered. Tsk. That is so bloody weird.

An Interesting Advert

July 17th, 2004 Comments(4)

Some flyer I got in my mailbox:

Worry no $ own self or children? Worry no roofing in the future? Nobody to talk to? No way to go? Thinking of commit suicide? Don't worry!

是否烦没钱?没钱给下一代更好的生活?担心没房子住?没人可以谈?走投无路?想自杀?别灰心,让我们向你一一解答!

We have more than 300 customers who worked in SGH, HP, SPH, Nestle, Mustafa, CISCO, SIA, LTA, PSA, SBS, etc.

That cracked me up. Make a wild wild guess what sort of business is marketing itself in this manner. :P

About To Implode

July 14th, 2004 Comments(2)

Many, many, many deadlines coming up. I don't have time to watch all those anime I bought/got hold of. I don't have time to talk on the phone either. *Screams*

Why do I still do the things I don't have time for?

And my Financial Aspects of Marketing tutor seems to think that I'm good with numbers. He's positively delusional. The only time I'm good with numbers is when they have a dollar sign in front.

My Weekend In A Nutshell

July 11th, 2004 Comments(11)

Saturday: Went to this place called Plush (or something) over at Boat Quay for a birthday party. Some birthday party. Everyone was in a right state before midnight. Had a couple of drinks and hightailed out of there before someone puked on me, which was extremely likely seeing as everyone was already vomiting their guts out before I left.

狼狈 is the only term I can think of that describes the state they were in. :P

Sunday: Shopping! Here's my haul.


White flare skirt. $18.30. I like it very muchly.


Floral bikini. $27.50. Isn't that like... dirt cheap? Gift from Quan, in any case. :P


Cellphone pouch. $4.90. My previous one was fraying.

I'm happy I finally got some shopping done. Whee!
