PALS Forum

Ok let’s see…yesterday we had……Phychem practical…Wah lao Josephine and Jun Cheng came to school so late..Practical was already over by 10am. We almost handed in our report late. Jun Cheng came about 10 minutes before the time limit, 11 am. When Elicia called Jun Cheng and heard that he didn’t finish the report, she was quite upset. But actually it was a misunderstanding. The part that he didn’t finish was already finished by Elicia. Miscommunication. So we compiled the report and handed it in. We got a C for this report. 3 weeks worth of marks. Bleah. I better start studying for physical chemistry if not i’m going to bloody fail….and for the other modules too for that matter. Bah, I looked at the past year papers for IMB. Madness. No wonder the guy they call ‘The Bastard’ failed it last semester. Then again maybe he didn’t study. Ah, I don’t know. I don’t know him at all so maybe I shouldn’t judge.

Yesterday we had the NYP-PALS annual forum. Basically they had a very long trip to all the schools in the whole polytechnic. It was really an eye-opener looking at the midwifery lab in the Nursing school. You should see those models of the female posterior with plastic baby and placenta in fake womb. Then there were the ECG machines, defibrillator machines (Did I spell that right?) and the ICU machines. The operating theater looks very cool. I could consider Medicine, but they probably wouldn’t let me in with a diploma. NUS loves A level students, not us poly people. Things could change in the near future though, thanks to government. YEah right….. Ah, the design school’s projects are very cool.. Very inspiring and eyecatching. Even the engineering side has a lot of impressive projects. What the hell does my school have? Light field microscopes. Never mind, I’ll create some impressive projects next time. *Evil Laugh*

So we had free dinner, which was quite decent. Watched some Korean internet rubbish, music videos..yeah.. Then they had some games. The very familiar game of throwing the egg down, wrapped up in your parachute what not. Another one was bursting balloons. Nothing much lar…

I have maths test later and I’m well prepared. In my dreams. Sleep…. Good….

Chicken Pox

Bloody *high pitch censoring beep sounds* hell……I finally finishing intergrating the important stuff…You like the layout??? Hmm…..Ok..

This damn chicken pox is getting lost soon…but still annoying. Haven’t done much work for the past few days. Absolutely no mood at all. And I have *high pitch censoring beep sounds* maths test on Thursday. Yay, maths is fun. We love maths don’t we?

Bah, I gave feast day a miss again this year. Damn chicken pox. Wonder if it was fun this year. I’ll ask my brother later.

It’s kind of strange that I’m blogging only now, considering that I had a lot of time during the past few days. I dunno, must be the ennui.

chick·en·pox or chicken pox (chkn-pks) (noun)
1) An acute contagious disease, primarily of children, that is caused by the varicella-zoster virus and characterized by skin eruptions, slight fever, and malaise. Also called varicella.


You people better vaccinate your kids from chicken pox next time, if not you’ll have a great time putting calamine lotion on their asses. I think I’m really blessed. My parents actually bother to take care of me. Mother went to buy anti-itching soap and father applying the lotion on my body. And no, there aren’t any blisters on my ass. Not so suay. Heh. Thank God for parents.

Chicken Pox cometh

Damn, I’ve the bloody chicken pox. I thought my immune system was damn powerful. Lol, I’m weak. The most funny thing is my brother got well yesterday while I’m getting sick today. Crap, how am I supposed to present my Commskills on Friday…..I was actually looking forward to presenting… And feast day on Saturday! Shit! $25 gone for nothing!! I was looking forward to that too. Damn it!! Argh…Ok, so I finished my Inorganic Chem practical report. I’ll hand it in and then go to the doctor’s.

ICC 2004

Saturday, woke up at 6.45 am. Went to school for the international coastal cleanup organised by NYP Geo Council. It was more interesting and fun than I had expected. They had organised it with Yio Chu Kang CC Youth Group and Andersen Primary School. So in my group, there were these 3 primary school boys who called their group Alien versus Predator…Heh, kids… So we had to analyse what rubbish we picked up. They’ll collate all the data and send it to the UN. Whoa, UN sia!! Yah, they want to see if the world’s oceans are getting cleaner or dirtier…I think it’s the latter.. There’s a bloody lot of styrofoam bits and for some reason, lollypop sticks. Damn littering punks. So my group picked up 9 kg of litter. We had food after cleaning up. Went back to school for music theory lessons. Then I went home to sleep. Woke up at night? =P At least I finished my damn comm skills case study. Hmm. Marvellous.

I was reflecting, what the hell are we doing to our oceans?! We are supposed to be stewards of this God’s earth. He is going to destroy us all if we don’t do something…. God have mercy… And then this guy from my group asked me. Which is better? A peaceful world or a clean world? Think about it…

Today went for CL at 8 am. It was Ignatius’s birthday. Damn, I didn’t know at all. Maybe I should get him something..thank him for helping me with maths…Lol I know i’ll still fail, but at least he managed to answer the tutorials I didn’t know. Yah… Then I finally finished my damn Microbiology A e-practical about half and hour ago? Yes. Now I can go and bloody sleep. Good night.

Wow! I passed Nihongo……amazing…….D only lah…like my jap is damn good like that….Hmm. Maths not out yet. Sianz, dunno how ah….Ah well…Today there was feast day novena mass at St Vincent’s at 8 pm..I thought it was at 6.30 PM. But they were having CL then going for mass at 8pm. Lol I reached church at 7pm. Damn, catching bus 70 from 5.30 pm onwards is terrible.. service frequency is terrible. Didn’t eat dinner. Came home and ate cup noodles after a nice shower. Yay. This weekend i;ve got to do my lab reports….and the comm skills project. Bought a pair of formal pants on Thursday. Will need it for my presentation and for feast day. Hmm…


I have been sleeping quite late these past few days. Yesterday I was quite restless. Ask my classmates then you’ll know. On Monday or Sunday I had a strange dream. I dreamt that there were people queuing up for confession, with the bus interchange rails. So I went to join the queue. This priest raised the Sacred Host in front of me. So, I went to another priest. Before he gave the absolution, I disappeared into thin air. I was in this desert. And I was trapped in this woman’s body. She was wearing a white dress I think. I asked her what she wanted. She said she was here to torment me. I asked her to stop, but she kept taunting me. Taunting me about what? I cannot remember. Oh, there was a song about kites in my dream. It is similar to some campfire song, but I can’t remember which one, nor the lyrics of the song in my dream.

Hmm yesterday was funny. Clement, Camilius, Elicia and I went to film our video for the presentation. It’s damn funny. Camilius is acting as a rapist and Elicia as the victim. Clement is the cameraman. I’m supposed to be some forensics guy. We’ll probably continue filming this afternoon.

Tuesday…I went to play pool with Arden, Clement and Josephine aka K-Box at AMK. Arden is damn good. I have to learn from him, or my skill will suck forever. Tuesday night had band, tried to learn some xylophone, played some triangle. Sigh..nothing much really.. Now I have to learn the scales.. Oh boy. Monday night had sectionals. This 58 year old Polish immigrant ex-SSO percussionist came to tutor us. He lives in AMK with his wife and he’s got a 6-month old child. His session was super draggy, and we almost got locked in the sports complex. Bah. I should go sleep now.

Ikutsumono tane wo ano oka e ukabete
Kireina hana wo shikitsumete ageru
Hayaku Mitsukete Mitsukete
Koko ni iru kara
Okosareru no wo matteru noni
Itsudemo kimi no egao ni yurete
Taiyou no you ni tsuyoku saiteitai
Mune ga Itakute Itakute Kowaresou dakara
Kanawanu omoi nara Semete karetai!

Scattering many seeds upon that hill
I will spread beautiful flowers all over for you
Quickly Find me Find me
Because I am here
Although I’m waiting to be woken up
I am always waving in your smile
I want to bloom vigorously like the sun
Because my heart hurts and hurts and is about to break
If it is a wish that will not come true Then wither!

Maths and Japanese

Let’s see…Just now was Maths and Japanese. Maths sure fail one, cause never do finish. Japanese might fail, because I can’t read the Katakana at all. Lol. Went to city hall to meet Kellina for the camp meeting. Then went to eat with Joshua at Millenia Walk. Went to AMK to see The Terminal after that. It’s a good show. You ought to see it.

Chicken Pox & Koch Postulates

This week is test week. Physical Chemistry sure fail one, because never study properly. IMB hopefully can get distinction, because the lecturer was lenient enough to post most of the questions on the course management system. Just now’s paper, Inorganic Chemistry, hopefully can do well. Studied like mad on Tuesday. Went to Joshua’s house just now. Asked him to solve some maths for me. Hmm. Not much help. Ate dinner there. Stayed there and talked cock until 2230. His dad sent me home after picking up his sister from the driving school. Bah, Microbiology A test is later. Hope I can do well. Shit, I hope I’m not catching the chicken pox from my brother. I don’t want to miss any papers. Damn. It’s starting to get itchy…Nah, maybe it’s all in the mind…

Varicella is the causative agent of Chicken Pox, which can be proven by Koch Postulates. Varicella is a virus that causes Chicken Pox. What are Koch Postulates? It is a series of steps formulated by the German microbiologist Robert Koch. It proves that a certain microorganism causes a specific disease, and there are no exceptions. So if you take chicken pox virus from guy A, culture it in the laboratory, inject it into guy B, he should get chicken pox. If you take guy B’s blood and test it, the chicken pox virus should be the same as the one found in guy A. Unless mutate or what lah. Haha.

Haven’t studied my Japanese yet…I’m going to die…

Sleep now. Oyasumi Nasai…


Sleep………….Must sleep…..
Today woke up at 6.30 to go play golf with family. Played 18 holes. Not too bad, but very rusty. Lost a lot of balls today. Almost lost a putter at the 5th hole, Dad had to go back and look for it. Rats. Went to meet Selene. Received a belated birthday present from her. It’s kind of girly, but it’s the thought that counts right? Went to school to renew my book. Supposed to study, but I ran into my classmates. Angeline’s friend Amanda came to visit us. Came home at 7pm. Common test is next week. Dunno if can or not….haiz..
