Zhang Sau Han (Angela Zhang) Concert @ NTU

Another week is coming to an end. Usually, my 'working' week ends on Thursday, as I do not have any classes on friday. However, for this week, it's an exception.. I've skipped lectures on wednesday (to collect angela zhang's concert tickets) and on Thursday (thanks to hon yoong's influence); Therefore, this week's Friday has 2 additional lectures that i have to attend as a make up.. But come to think of it, it might be a good thing after all. Cause my normal Fridays', I'll wake up at 12.30, have lunch.., and it's either i'll continue sleeping or i'll just watch a movie on my comp. haha.. (I'm such a slacker)

I wasn't very productive today though. I have this throbbing pain on my head.. and i'm blaming it on my pimple on my forehead.. haha.. but it could be due to lack of sleep.. lol.. So, didn't really get to study much or whatsoever that concerns studying.

Anyway, the main event for today is Angela Zhang's Concert. In case you don't know who she is, she's a taiwanese singer as well as an actress.. The concert's supposed to start at 7pm with a scheduled admission at 630pm.. And guess what? People started to line up at 430!! (right after my 2nd lecture in MLT).. The kiasuness of ppl.. haha.. I went back hall with hon yoong and CK though.. checked my ECA Record (I have 107.3 points.. whahaha) and took a short rest, hoping that my headache will subside.. Reached Canteen B at 6pm for dinner, but ying sin they all have already taken their dinner and were already lining up for the concert... =/ The three of us rushed through our meal, and ended up in a queue where we were given numbers; I'm number 408, Yingsin they all were 356.. And there were 2 queues, each on one side of the entrance into MLT.

The concert was quite satisfactory, she's really undoubtfully good.. Got a powerful voice, although she's quite petite. Apparently, she's only 155cm and weighs 38 kg. Her look's not too bad... haha.. Oh, then laifai they all got interviewed by Malaysia's 98.8FM. All of us took a pic with the VJ by the end of the day. Not too bad eh? Later after that, all of us went to hall 3 to have our 'feast'; food from Ipoh, brought back by eng sue. There's sak keh mah, heong peng, kacang tumbuk, dodoi, chicken biscuits, etc. Then, hon yoong supplied us with 100 plus.. I ate quite a lot of it, hopefully my body won't get too heaty from it.. hehe... And what's worse, Buddhist Society is having this Exam Supper in Canteen A where they're serving Sushis! Ying sin and I went there.. Haha.. The sushi's seriously not too bad at all.. It's all "home-cooked" and it's quite delicious.. (Probably due to the fact that i like seaweed) Bumped into my sis there, whose having her group discussion. After my 2nd supper, I was quite 'dead' already... Next thing on my mind was a hot shower, and a good night's sleep...

Internal scars..

Was just talking to a friend just now... and so happened that the topic of a scarred/cracked heart came up... A heart that was once broken.. and however it is being 'repaired', there'll still be a trace (either big or small) of a broken-hearted it once was...
Well, and i was pondering.. what good implications are there for a scarred heart? Most of us know that when a heart was once broken, that person may not be able to learn to open up their heart again.. giving up on love.. or on milder cases, they might just hide it away, assuming that it was never there.. (but mind you, it can't be ignored)..
So, what good is there? Perhaps, if it's managed properly.. a person might grow stronger.. learns from the past; Never repeat the same mistaken again.. and not to just fall in love easily.. But i guess it's not as simple as it sounds.. There could be some 'hybrids'.. appearing to have a heart of stone (strong outside)... but deep down inside, it's just another fragile heart, waiting to love and be loved in return..
Haha.. ironically, maybe i could learn something myself from here... Which path a person would choose? It depends...

4 in 1 Birthday Celebration

It's not everyday you get to see 4 people blowing candles on a birthday cake at the same time.. haha.. And today, it's a brithday celebration for Ronie and Chee Kheng, Ying sin and Hui Chian! "rented" the bbq pit in my hall; that's our agenda for the evening.. "BBQ!" The stuffs that we have bought from yesterday, the chicken wings that were marinated the night before.. will end up in our stomachs.. haha.. It started around 7 plus.. with a bit of technical problem.. cause the pad lock on the bbq pit was rusted and could not be opened... even the key broke into 2.. ended up using brutal force to break the lock... haha..
But anyway, the bbq was fun.. There was quite alot of food.. They 'bought' bihun from Hall 16, got potatoes, sausages, fish balls, nuggets, luncheon meat and of course, chicken wings.. Think there were around 20-30 ppl there.. Didn't manage to call EVERYBODY, otherwise, it'll be overcrowded..

Everything turned out well, with some 'scandals' going round... like hon yoong and eng sue both dissapeared for hours making 'red bean soup' and chiew hsiung caught them red handedd by taking a pic with both of them sleeping on the bed... haha..

Lasted till around 1230.. Still have classes tmr.. though it seemed like it's the weekends already.. haha

Today is a Gift!

Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day.

What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course!

Each of us has such a bank. Its name is TIME. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day.

If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours. There is no going back. There is no drawing against the "tomorrow". You must live in the present on today's deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success! The clock is running. Make the most of today.


To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade.

To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who gave birth to a pre-mature baby.

To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of ONE DAY, ask a daily wage laborer with kids to feed.

To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who missed the train.

To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who just avoided an accident.

To realize the value of ONE MILLI-SECOND, ask the person who won a silver medal in the Olympics.

Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time.

And remember that time waits for no one. Yesterday is history.

Tomorrow a mystery.

Today is a gift ... That's why it's called the present!

Mahjong...

Here comes the weekend again... It has already been one week since the 7-day break.. With a busy night-life the week b4, this time.. there wasn't much.. Though, there's still like one or two.. Like the night b4, where we went night jogging... Started from Hall13/3, to hall 4 and to SRC where we exercised and chatted there. And tonight, they planned to go Burger King in IMM for dinner as they had some discount coupons... DInner was great, travelled all the way there just for dinner.. (luckily there was free shuttle from Boon Lay to IMM). Then, came back to JP where most of them wanted to watch Final Destination 3. Me, May Yann, Wei teng and Chi Ing didn't go though, as we thought that $9 is abit too much to watch a movie.. haha. so we (excluding Chi Ing) decided to play mahjong in May Yann's room. So, we borrowed a deck of cards, (Yes, believe it or not, it's a deck of mahjong cards) and we managed to play from 10++ till 2++am.. haha.. imagine.. Guess i don't really have luck in gambling. I lost to may yann $10.20 and to wei teng $2.60.. May yann's luck was seriously unbelievably good. Haha.. like some kind of mahjong queen... THen, i also like kind of give up playing.. haha.. after having such a 'low stock market'... Oh well, it's just a game anyway.. haha... After the game, May yann cooked mee for supper.. (not a bad host eh?).. Waited for tht wai teng to finished his super long bathe... but managed to call it a night at 4am..
And tmr, there's a GL/AGL meeting at 1pm, and MSA meeting at 7pm.. never study at all today.. haha...
