Yes Yes, I know it's been...erm...26 days since I last posted. What to do? I have been trying to wait for pictures to put up but hell, I could never get that done now could I? Why is that? Because I am a BUM.

Main Entry: 4bum
Function: noun
Etymology: probably short for bummer
a : one who sponges off others and avoids work
b : one who performs a function poorly
c : one who devotes his time to a recreational activity
2 : VAGRANT, TRAMP- on the bum : with no settled residence or means of support

Sad. However, the solution is on its way. Well, mostly when I...

1. Fix my health ~ my right hand's been afflicted with Radial Palsy, and I am down with a nasty bout of typical.
2. When I do find a way to upload pictures from my new phone (well, not so new now), the Nokia 7610:

Yes, I have it in this exact colour apparently not found in Singaporean distribution. :D

3. When I find a way to organize thoughts and events that have passed (like how I went for vacation, and how I got into the NTU Debate IVPs, ya know, things like that!)

But for now, I will say two things about my weekend:

The Bourne Supremacy

Rocked! :)

bro's b'day today and i had way too much cake again :(
don't know why but was in the mood to share lyrics to this song.
Lucky - Radiohead
I'm on a roll,
I'm on a roll this time
I feel my luck could change.
Kill me Sarah,
kill me again with love,
it's gonna be a glorious day.
Pull me out of the aircrash,
Pull me out of the lake,
I'm your superhero,
we are standing on the edge.
The head of state has called for me by name
but I don't have time for him.
It's gonna be a glorious day!
I feel my luck could change.
Pull me out of the aircrash,
Pull me out of the lake,
I'm your superhero,
we are standing on the edge.
We are standing on the edge.
Must be because of the String Tribute to this song that I am listening to, which makes it sound extra emotional. *sigh*

{Monday, August 02, 2004 . }

second week of school and i am facing the ghosts of summer:
- the jigsaw puzzle laying very very broken and ill-treated on my room floor
- the promise of dedication towards academia, and sorting out campus accomodation
- the books, the pile that i have to abandon for other things
- the partying, for now and mayber it will remain that way (yes, nerdification has occured here)

life has basically consisted of hanging with family now that we are all together for two weeks here in singapore. we have had countless dinners together so far, strange pointless conversations, fights over bathrooms in the morning, the infringing of my personal space in my room and on the pc by my brother and mother, hanging in school as it is the only sanctuary. the cherry on the icing will be the family trip to desaru this national day weekend. it will all pass, most things do, good or bad.

on other news, i got a job! yay! we'll see how it goes, starts tmrw. have to quit the one in school, yet i am still unable to draft that resignation email (smth tells me, i should hold on to it). oh, and i am broke again and i have two birthdays this week to buy presents for, tmrw being my sister-in-law's anniversary of her day of existence, followed by her husband's on thursday. not to mention, my second brother's on the 14th. all very assholic to have been born in the same month i tell you. must end all this angst.


always feels good to do that.

i am looking forward to:
the village by m. night shyamalan
trying to get new contact lenses
getting paid on the 15th by parents
getting back money from friend when he gets back on the 10th from europe, very late for school
eventually practicing my bass guitar
meeting some people
shaking off this strange mood i am in right now.

hmmmmm...will ponder meaning of life as i end this entry, or stick to the very well known:

"Life's a bitch....fuck it!"

and for the ones very optimistic with things

"Life is weird, maybe even beautiful"

spare me, that was an original.
