Oh mann. I just spent 3 hours looking at how to curl hair.
Haha. Am I damn lame or what.
Nope, actually I think the correct word is: V-A-I-N.
Yarrr. Sigh. What a vain-pot am I
Tomorrow I am going to try to curl my hair with the Lucidol pre-curl water and romantic hair styling wax that I bought. Hope it will look nice.
Just now, I was reading some of my old friends' blogs. And I realised that I really miss them, their personality, the funny jokes and real talks that we had last time. Those were truly friends I could connect with.
And then, I'm wondering - what kind of people do you meet in life?
There are some, true friends that will stay in your life for a long time (not possibly forever, I am old enough to know that friendship isn't 'forever', family is).
And yet, there are some friends who will enter your life, and simply walk out a while later.
This period can last for a few years or even as short as a few months.
Sigh. The friends that I had back in SCGS were really my closest and bestest friends that I've ever met since.
I could talk about anything with them, my deepest thoughts and fears, and not worry about them divulging it out to anyone. We would have a laugh about anything together, and could really connect.
After I've entered JC, I've realised the friends I've met in here are more like friends whom you can go out and enjoy time with, and have fun together. Which is good, in a way.
Perhaps the time length of 2 years is too short to connect with anyone or to be close to anyone, irregardless.
And perhaps the student population here is so big that you find yourself mixing with anyone and everyone, from your class to CCA, to your friend's friends, instead of a few individually.
JC is really a fun time, but to me, it is only a fun time.
I really miss the feeling of being able to truly connect with and understand someone on a deeper level.
Which is what I really do to my friends.
Haha. I realise that Jasmine and Samantha think the same as me too. Do you?
Perhaps, birds of a feather really flock together.

Haha, I can't believe I'm so bored that I'm actually looking at JOKES!
Sorry, but I don't have the habit of looking at jokes and I don't laugh at jokes since most of them are just lame and not funny.
I remember, last time my ex boyfriend and I were browsing Youtube together, and we decided to type in the keyword, "funny" and see what would come out.
I know. We were damn lame.
Then we looked at various joke videos and showed them to each other.
He commented, 'LOL' and showed me the link to a video.
It was one where a toddler picked up a vibrating toy and just looked at it curiously. Then he started playing with it.
I was like, "Huh? Haha? What's so funny about that?"
He gave me a shocked look and said, "You don't know what's that?"
I was like, "What?"
He said, "Okay, tell me what is that."
"Erm... isn't it a BULLET?"
He was like, "HUH?!?" and started laughing his head off.
Cos I actually thought it was a bullet that was going to explode. Lol.
But actually, it's not.
You know what it is?
It's a vibrator!
OMG. Silly me didn't know what was a vibrator then and I actually thought it was some grenade or something, hahaha.
By the way, do GRENADES vibrate???
Anyway, as I was saying I searched for some jokes and found a list. But some here are just lame and plain crude.

Sometimes, the person whom you
Place your trust in
Listen to in times of need
Willingly offer help and advice to
And stand up for, all in the name of friendship
Can just turn around and stab you in the back.
Ah wells. What can I say?
Sorry, I'll never believe you again.

Okay, this one is really funny.
The little boy in this video comes running to his dad and pointing to his baby brother, saying that he has 'blood' on his chin. Except that the way he pronounces the word 'blood' is really different, like 'blud-uh'.
This makes the Dad crack up.
The boy keeps getting exasperated that his Daddy doesn't get what he's saying and gets really pissed.
At the last part he shouts, "NOT FUNNY!!!"
3. Baby laughing at the Wii
He cracks up watching his Dad play golf on the Wii.

Today was my dad's birthday.
I made an Oreo Cheesecake for him. Haha. It's super delicious. My bro said that it tasted better than the previous time. I think it's because I changed the brand of cheese. Lol.
I will post the pictures up next time when I'm free.
My mom bought him a shirt and a pair of pants. She actually bought HIPSTER pants. Haha, Jasmine I bet you are laughing at this now. My dad tried it on and my bro and I were immediately like, "Nooo... Daddy! You can't wear that!"
Haha. My mom is gonna change the pants.
At night, we went to eat steamboat at Marina.
I haven't eaten steamboat for so long.
My bro recommended the place cos he went there with his church group to eat the other time. It's actually a steamboat and BBQ, 2-in-1 sorta thing. I thought it was pretty nice.
There was an area where we could go and take fresh food to cook. Correction. The food didn't really look very fresh.
My mom taught me the other time how to look out for fresh food.
For prawns, the head musn't be loose and hanging out from it's body, plus it must have some orange fluid in its head.
I think the orange fluid is kinda gross. It's like some sort of mushed up brain matter. If I eat prawns, I always request for the head to be detached first.
My mom and I went to go and take food while bro and Dad slacked at the table.
We came back with HORDES of food. For those of you who know, my family eats a lot.
We also tried BBQ-ing food and the oil kept splattering on us! I liked the BBQ-ed prawns and black pepper chicken.
Anyway, the food there was so-so but I've tried better at Koka steamboat, which I absolutely love. If you're looking for something cheap, you can visit there though.
After we finished the steamboat, we drove past Marina area and I saw this empty field.
I remember when I was young, my parents used to bring me there to fly kites. I was really small then and didn't know how to control the kite and stuff, and I remember watching my Dad steering the kite and being really amazed at how a small colourful flag could soar so high up into the sky.
Sigh. Wonderful childhood memories.
On our way home, my bro and I started singing songs in the car. We sang all the way home.
I had a wonderful day. Tired now. Gonna sleep!

Why must I do something that I do not like to do. Why am I forcing myself to do it even though I know it is beneficial on the outside but inside it does not really matter.
Why do I have to be so concerned over such little things that might not mean anything to anyone;
But means a lot to me.
Escaping from something that I'm afraid of.
Or rather face it. Grin and bear.
Many times I tell myself to just go.
And when I finish each day, I give myself a pat on the back and congratulate myself, for doing something which is incorrect and yet theoretically correct.
Is that the way of life?
@ 2:08 AM
Why is it so.

I woke up today with a horrible pang in my stomach.
It's one of those sharp, quick sudden ones that hit you in the middle of nowhere.
Since it was 5 am, I took some pills and went back to catch some shut eye since band starts at 9am.
Afterwards, I woke up again (while having this NICE NICE dream) due to the pain.
Nah, it ain't cramps. Just think I got diarrhoea.
Went to toilet. Came back and lie down for a while.
Then go toilet. Then came back again and sat down.
THEN WENT TOILET AGAIN!!!
Omg. I think it's the most number of times I went on a repetive toilet escapade before.
Suddenly I thought I would collapse or something. So I just went back to sleep.
Even if I fainted, maybe I would faint in my sleep? Lol.
Okay, that doesn't make sense anyway.

From stickgal's blog:
How Dating Slowly Evolves
Haha. Damn cute, FUNNY but true!
Now before guys everywhere start protesting against these pictures, saying that "Aiyah, not true lah. Not all Singapore guys are like that!"
Redemption: At least Stick Boy still gave Stick Girl some cash in the end to buy donuts.
I really like the last part when she asked him for donuts, and he gave her money with that kinda BIG SHEEPISH GRIN. Then she had that -.-" look like that.
Harharhar. So amusing!
And the Indian selling donuts scene at Carrefour is so classic.

Hi SYF 09.

I will remember you.
I remember listening to this song the night that my Grandpa passed away.
Perhaps some of you are not very close to your grandparents, or perhaps they may even have left the world before you were born, but my Yeye held a very important and special place in my heart.
He was one of the people that I loved most in this world.
I put this song on replay, and just spent the whole night listening to its meaningful lyrics and crying to sleep.
It's a beautiful song.
1 week before he died, I promised him that I would take him to eat his favourite food, laksa.
He hadn't eaten laksa for a long time because of his weak health condition, it was best that he stayed away from oily and spicy foods.
When he died, I was extremely devasted.
Why didn't he wait? I thought. Why couldn't he just wait a little while more.
I remember being the first at the hospital to break down when the doctor mentioned the word, "comatose". At first, I was just listening silently to his diagnosis. Tears began building up in my eyes, but I tried to control it. However, the more I listened, the more I couldn't hold it in anymore.
And the tears just went down my face, like there was no tomorrow.
My whole family stared at me in astonishment.
But they could not do much to comfort me because they felt really sad themselves.
My grandpa died when a blood vessel ruptured inside his brain, causing internal bleeding and the permanent disability of his bodily functions.
I felt his pain.
That night, I listened to this song countless times.
Even though he did not understand English, I believed that perhaps far away, really high up in the heavens, he was watching over me sleep and listening to every single lyric of this song.
Don't cry, he said. Don't cry. I will always remember you.
And so I dedicate this to him, because his 1st death anniversary is coming up soon.
I love you Grandpa, and won't ever forget you.
