today was another rough day.. it all started at chinese period, followed by a mass number of boring periods. even doing theory hw during free geog was more fun. anyways, today came back and napped (again) and went for music class... got back theory grade 6 results.. got 82!! which is a 2 mark scrape into a merit. honestly was hoping for at least a near miss of a distinction but nvm i passed, can move on.
jus now was toking wif my mom.. i realli dunno if i shud pursue music as a career... its realli a veri veri tough decision. right now my guitar aint progressing much.. cos got so little time. wonder if i shud do it for leisure instead... and now i also want to go and relearn piano... throughout the 10 years the piano existed in my hse i dint realise its impt until the 5 months it dint exist. well my mom says tt getting the piano aint a prob.. its a matter if i will practice again. will i? i mean.. the piano was sitting there for so long waiting to be practised on... wad abt now..... need to think this over. Lord pls guide me.

ergh. today i jus dun feel right.. i think its prob cos i too tired. almost puked over brendan during chapel :P i jus feel.. so sian about sch.
sch finishes at 2:40. reach home 3:15. lunch till 3:30 and nap till 5:30. tuition from 7 - 8. then left wad.. 2h to do work and relax. well i guess tts life.
i decided my guitar life needed a bit of spice.. cos everything is getting too boring. its jus the same boring classical songs.. guitar playing needs one veri nice piece that motivates u to prac more.. so today i decided to start learning Asturias!! i think some of u all cud have heard it b4.. jus dunno wad its called. b4 asturias there was.. Sevilla.. really magical piece... but it was so difficult that the magic could not be brought out by me haha.. so those type of pieces i jus shove aside for now.
yeah.. i guess tts all.. another mass toking cock session from me.. iso and a maths awaits.. cant wait for wkend (or even 1 solid hour of rest). cyaz.

i currently in writing mood now.. jus wrote 500 words on competition in singapore schools... making me depressed... and at the same time listening to ryan cabrera.. enhances the melancholy haha.
i think i jus want to write out the camp programme wif my additional thots, jus like how i shared wif my church frens at chalet ytd (it rawked!!)
anyway here goes.
its pissing lah.. right from the first activity. pitch until nice nice.. then amir comes along and tells us tt 'ur tents are nt near enuf to each other' and indicates somewhere in his message tt he wants us to repitch them closer. forgot sunblock for first activity.. so by then my neck was chao tah. but wad can we learn.. 1 person definitely cannot pitch the tent rite... needs teamwork :P
'No talking, no torchlights'. at first a bit scary lah. then i thought of 1 of teh verses of psalm 23.. 'yea tho i walk thru the valley of the shadow of death, i fear no evil, for Thou art wif me..' aft tt nt so bad liaoz.. then i thought abt the song this is my Father's world.
This is my Father's world
and to my listening ears
all nature sings and round me rings
the music of the spheres.
and also the part in the rustling grass i hear Him pass.. this made me realised that God is everywhere in our lives... even right now when u sit in front of the com and read my blog.
Going up is easy man. coming down for tall pple is.. siao. i slipped abt 5 times (haha sorry qiang.. scared u so much) and twisted my arm twice to prevent myself falling. but fotunately we all escaped wif brown shorts and few scratches, as well as hamstring and thigh crams. poor david and lui. this activity is also abt teamwork... need to support each other as we go up mountain.
how fun is this man... i'm actually driving my own boat!!!! woohoo!!!! the wind is nice. and the water is... more or less cleaner than the sewage. apart from few minor scratches.. was so fun. i was leader for 2nd half.. was quite okay.. made up some crap story for our SOS preparations. then the anthony actually believed melolz. anyway, i think this activity is one of the few times i helped brendan more than he helped me... he couldnt turn the boat for nuts (actually at first was both of us cock lah..) so i helped him after i learned.. supposed to paddle on the opposite side and jam on the side u wan to turn. haha.. its okie brendan.
well well well. this has got to be one of the most joker activities ever lah. our grp wanted to try new stuff and make a funny shaped raft. i mean.. even i looked at our raft and thought that T shape was the perfect design according to physics. go in only muthu sit on top and it crumbles. HAHAHA. and we push it right across teh brown water wif sludgey muddy riverbed. after that splash arnd and kena lectured by see teck hock abt my puny cut on my toe.. then take the seriously needed bath. oh yeah.. and the pond water screwy one lor.. my upper body can be warm while my lower is cold... rumoured: warm areas got more bacterial activity.
everything went siao lor i think hahaha. but at least our class managed to put up an item even tho it was so diu lian. hope its the start of a synergised year.
1) toilets. no comment.
2) sleeping in tents. needs serious tolerance man. even i was getting pissed by the last nite.
3) food. okay lah. after 3 days of nasi briyani, zinger meal rox.
4) mosquito bites. the last of my concerns.
5) Zane. hes so nice guy. i think hes wad i will remember most abt the camp. hes some psychologist expert.. and consellor at his church. within 3 days, can learn enuf abt u to freak u out by telling u abt ur character (and even the reasons for ur frenships :P) and the thing i remember him telling us that u cant get a taste of heaven wifout going thru hell on earth first. so wadeva u do mus have fun.
wah write for veri long liao.. erm... anyways, i think this camp has changed me, for better or for worst. i can tell that i have definitely become lamer. other than tt.. leave ya all to find out for urselves. back to LA. cya pple.

aft tt was more fun.. went to plaza sing to buy an inflatable pillow for malaysia trip nxt wk (btw, i will be gone on 17 - 20... some camp in the jungles of Kluang). first tried carrefour on advice of my fren.. turns out he was referring to the suntec one.. so i look arnd. luckily theres a sports connection there.. the guy there hu served me was veri funny.. at first he looked veri calm.. getting change and all.. then all of a sudden he starts to explain the inflatable pillow concept to me.. abt how u shud hold the nozzle while u blow, and how pple have burst pillows and gone back to him to fix (it costs $4). lolol. was laffing after tt.
i dint noe my moms trolley luggage bag was so small.. i mean.. i only want to pack in:
1 sleeping bag
all encased in plastic bags
and one bag wif 2 shirts and 2 pants tt i dun intend to wear unless the tent gets flooded so badly tt i have no dry clothes.
at this point, the bag is already full
i still intend to squeeze in toiletries and my shoes. how man. lol.

everything is happening so fast... ytd i had private guit and chinese tuition aft sch, then in evening went to make my new specs and 'fix' my current one that is still veri screwed up.
in my opinion, the 5 day wk is realli making everybody cranky. even the bus drivers... today i experienced 2 terrible double-decker bus drivers... the 74 bus driver jammed the break 3m from the traffic light... i almost fell down lol. the 165 bus i took jus now back from holland v oso liddat... uneven acceleration.. pple walk can fall down one noe... shud write in to SBS. oh and the 165 i took.. i noticed it was a heart bus.. then i looked at the donors... henry park?!? my primary school?!? lololol.
even more out of point stuff happens man.. when i was at HV looking for mark's photo frame, i saw lydia yap. *whut?!? lolz. weird things.
tml is party for mark.. jus hope he does well in australia... haha. i think hes definitely learnt a lot from us acs pple. gd luck to mark, altho he'll probably nvr come to this blog.

woke up at 10:40. lol. vast difference from the usual 6am. today was quite fun lah.. jus stay home and did wad i usually did during hols. tv, guitar (altho my fingers were still crammed up from past 2 days 4h of practice) and com. jus now went clementi to eat dinner and get my watch fixed. haha i dint noe it wud take so long... was also hoping to check my eyesight, buy t-shirts... and take so much money too. battery $6 okay lah can last for 1 year. strap... city chain sells for $18. i thot too ex so went to one of those smaller ulu shops. the guy there tells me $8. so i say okay. when its done he collects the money, and says its $18 dollars. lol. i onli heard the ba of the shiba quai. so i change it to a cheaper (uglier) $12 one.. so paiseh rite. but still so ex. the $14 i spent can buy a pirated pasar malam watch.
also found out today that the song True by Ryan Cabrera cannot be played by 1 solo guitarist wif all those string mutes. i tried it on my guitar... it takes a lot of force to make the sound of the string slaps. tt means got 2 guitars playing. so disappointing. its a nice song. but unfortunately my voice is also not made for pop music.. register too low. hai.. wish i cud sing higher lol.
yea.. tts abt it.. jus finished a terrible attempt on myself in chinese. tts abt all the hw i have.. so tml is free. cya pple.

it's the 3rd day and i starting to feel sad liao. it was all after 5:30 when moley (no offence) called me and told me tt i was supposed to show up at mep class today. b4 tt shau ching told me mep for us was going to be on friday for us, followed by guitar at 5 - 7 aft that. i was delighted lah cos mep clashes wif UYO, and all the stuff is all on 1 day. but now mep class is supposedly on weds, so.... friday mus go St john's!??! tts the last thing i want. its like some goof ball wif no post going for training to listen to ur own peers command u arnd.
trials dark on every hand
and we cannot understand
all the ways that God will lead us
to that blessed promised land.
But He'll guide us with his eye
and we follow till we die
we will understand it better by and by.
yeah...tts basically my inspiration, just try to live life day by day. tml. tml theres normal lessons, guitar prac 3 - 6, no serious hw due yet, and maybe even performance for sec 1 oreintation. its a gd day isnt it? so i shall enjoy it.
