oops! i haven't updated the blog for some time already. anywayz, i have been reading peoples' blogs quite a bit these days. looks like everyone is busy with their lives and stuff, including me. yeah, for now, i'm having my holidays which will come to an end in 4 days time. how did i spend it?
well, with fun, fun and more fun!! haha...yup, that's what i've been trying to do. though initially i thought that i would get down to do some revision, but when i got into the relaxing mode, it just seem impossible to start. =) hopefully, i won't regret it. this holiday, my friends went back to where they used to belong. leaving me here all by myself... sigh!
haha...but no worries! i'm enjoying myself even without them. hehe... i went to sydney for a couple of days with my sis, slacked everyday. surf the internet, watched loads of movies and drama serials, swam almost everyday, shopped, played golf, etc etc. yup my days are filled with activities.
unfortunately, i have to say, these fun moments never last for long. and, i never figured out why. sigh!... but its ok, as long as i'm satisfied with every day of my life. =) and i hope everyone else is too...

the pictures are up finally! haha...go have a look if you're curious. i had to spend some time reducing the file size of each pic and most importantly, select them. they are mostly taken during my b'day and the hols. plus you get to see the people i usually hang out with. oh, turn up the volume of your speakers too! i changed the bkground music as well! enjoy! =)
if you want to know...the pple in my clique are sherlyn, rachel, kelvin, emmanuel and zhaokai. 3 girls 3 guys...=)
we went to a couple of places during the hols. like, port melb, sth melb beach and st kilda beach which are next to each other. we played golf at albert park, played tennis, cooked a number of our meals, went shopping at bridge road(richmond), chadstone and smith street. we went for a run at the botanical gardens too and explored the shrine of remembrance that was built to commemorate the soldiers who died during the wars and the gardens near my place too. yup, out holiday was fully packed with activities. but i somehow feel guilty for not doing any work. hehe..=P
actually, i used to hang out with sherlyn and rachel initially. then, after the camp and some classes, the 3 guys invaded our privacy...then poof!...our grp of 6 was formed. haha =D... that's the story behind this clique. want to know more? ok. rachel, me and emmanuel are s'poreans and are 17 this yr while the rest are m'sians and are 18 this yr. cool yeah? haha =) we meet for lunch everyday, go for support lects together, occasionally have dinners together, go for lects together if possible and most importantly, we are working towards goals which are quite similar. its scary to say that 3 of us want to get into medicine and the rest of us are aiming for an average of above 90%. haha...=)...
oh celine, after you have seen the pics, tell me if there's any shuai ge ok? haha...the three guys claim they are...so yah...what's your opinion? haha...=) ok got to do my work now...hope that i can update my blog soon! =)

hey guys! wow man...its been more than a month since i last updated my blog!!! haha =)...well, sorry for keeping all of you waiting but not to worry, i have been reading all your blogs and roughly know what you pple have been going through.
yup, i've been busy too. with schl, working hard and of course playing hard as well. yes, i have been occupied with numerous parties and outings during my 2 weeks easter break in april. my friends and i explored new places, eat, watch lots of movies(rented) and played games; tennis, who's the richest...basically, we spent lots of money. haha... B4 that, we had a week of exams. My results were not very good actually though i scored way high for literature. do you guys remember i used to fail lit terribly last few yrs? guess what? i scored 4.75/5 for my poetry here!!! i was super shocked actually. It was unexpected.
anyway, its term 2 for me here. like you guys, i have essays to write and lots of tutorials to catch up with. but of course, there's some play for my in between. just this thursday, it was my friend's birthday and we prepared a video for days b4 that as a surprise gift. he's parents invited us for dinner that night and again tonight. and tomorrow, another friend's parents are inviting us for dinner as well. haha...yup, so all my dinners have been settled for me. =)
i'll be posting some pictures of my group of friends in 'my life'. have a look if you're interested.=)

It is the end of the orientation already. you guys must have been wondering why my orientation is taking so long while all of you are busy preparing for tests and rushing to do your tutorials. Haha..=) no worries, my turn for mugging will come.
Speaking about the camp which I just had. Well, it was good, enjoyable, in fact its one of the best camps I ever been to, besides the OBS one. I had good accommodation and good food for all three days. We had 6 meals a day. Can you believe it? There’s breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and supper. And you know what, for dinner, we have 3 courses, the appetizer, main course and dessert. So most of the time we were eating. =)
But besides eating, we had outdoor activities as well. However, every group had a different itinerary and each group had something less compared to another group. Like for my group, we did not have the rope course. =( but guess what? I managed to do the rope course activities during my free time. ;) Haha…=) though I was shaking like mad while walking on just a rope in the air. Well, the experience of everything was worth it. =) I did abseiling on a real rock wall too. The view we got from the top was just fantastic. And with the birds flying in a formation in the air, it was a panoramic view!!! =)
Another thing. Have you ever wondered why you can talk so much to friends you have just made? And do you know card games can actually bring so much fun and laughter? Well, I found the answers to them during the camp. We had lots of free time during the camp by the way where we had a choice of activities. For one of the evenings, I chose to play cards and I taught a table of new friends the name game we used to play in schl. but of course, we used our real names as a way of introducing ourselves. We all came from different countries and at times we had problems communicating. =) Haha…so it was quite a funny experience. =)
Now, I figure why my school fees are very expensive. The camp is one of the reasons. Check out the new pics i added! =)

i'm just so bored...why must there be a 3 hr break between lectures?? i wanted to go home but the journey to and fro is already an hour. isn't it a waste of time spending an hr for travelling?? just like yesterday, i'm spending the break in the library. its called the leeper library and i think its the nicest library in the whole university compound. its also well equiped with imac computers which we can use for as long as we want to. =) it has a pleasant atmosphere as well...and the pple who come in here are really considerate. they keep really quiet just that off and on..you'll hear pple 'banging' their fingers on the keyboard. and that's exactly what i'm doing now... =P i'm surely coming here to study when school starts proper.
oh yes, i added more pics to the blog...you can go have a look.

you know what? i think the orientation is taking a bit too long...haha=) i thought, maybe more time of play would be good but i think i'm getting a little bored. so i decided to do some studying while the orientation continues. =P you can say i'm kiasu but if you're in my position especially with my sister who is constantly studying most of the time now...you can't help it but to study as well.
as maths is my favourite subject. i started revising my maths yesterday and to my horror...i actually forgot a whole lot of stuff. and my brain does not work as fast as it was last yr. well, i guess my brain just needs some warm up and some stimulation in order to work efficiently again. =)
anyway, these two days have been moving very slowly and there isn't much to say. yesterday was subject selection and today i just had a literature lecture. the literature lecture was fun. the lecturer had his own way of introducing this subject to draw us into it...that we suddenly had an interest in literature when we initially did not. =) he's really funny and he can speak CHINESE!! by the way, he's australian and he speaks very good chinese. his pronounciation's not bad too. =) unfortunately, this month we are starting with poetry which i'm really bad at analysing. anyway, i'll just have to see how it goes...
i'll be leaving for camp soon too. and did i ever mention that i'll be going to the furthest camp? it seems that the camp i'm going to is the largest and the most fun. but today i realise that there seem to be a lot more guys going for this camp compared to the number of girls.... so wish me luck. =)

hmm..yesterday was a day of introductory lectures where we find out what the different subjects are like and hopefully they will help us to choose the subjects we wanna take. all of us have to take at least 3 electives + english and history of ideas which are both compulsory. as for me, i've decided to take chem and 2 maths, maths 1A and maths 2. i'm taking subjects which will allow me to get into the course i want and hopefully allow me to score in. the courses which i can do with these subjects are physiotherapy, optometry, science, medicine, biomed sci and dental science. quite a number of options yeah? but it actually depends on my total percentage which will detemine the course i'm eligible for. so yeah, its not as easy as it sounds.
anyway, i'm ready to prepare myself for a battle with my brain cells which are currently not active at all. they are crippled it seems. haha =)... at the mean time, i'm making friends, more friends and more friends. haha=)... its very fun to make friends. i kind of got the momentum already. haha =). just yesterday, i made my first indonesian friend, jennifer, and somemore malaysian friends. i'm kind of a link between pple and i mix them around as well so they make more friends too. =) cool yeah? i'm the middle man. =)
this coming monday will be the subject selection day and i think i'll meet more pple there too. =) there's just to many trinity pple around that i always see new faces everywhere everytime. sigh! looks like i won't be able to recognise a trinity student among the uni students. i used to be able to differentiate an ij girl with other schl pple but here...its a definite can't. cos, some of the trinity students look so mature and grown up that you know...yah you know what i'm trying to say..haha=)
