music: Love Is- Vanessa Williams & Brian Mcknight
Staring at the comp screen for too long isnt good for the eyes...no duh...been doing my genetics report, and started on my english...am quite happy with how the two assignments are getting along...the genetics one is abt three quarters done, and my english is abt half done...my brain is now a puddle of grey matter...ask me a question now and i can guarantee i will give an answer that borders on the insane...or inane hehehe... went out last night with my cuz...we were just jalan2-ing in Gadong...and we ended the night with a drink at CB...the night before i went with my babe Rach to the movies...but first we had to satisfy that undying desire for....waffles and ice cream...(all together now...mmmmmmm...)
LOL...i dunno what it is abt the waffles and ice cream at Tau but it's just...gooooooood....hehehe...then we caught a flick at Empire...The Italian Job...we went away feeling very very satisfied with the movie...money well spent, i say. Charlize Theron is like, a major babe and one of my faves...and the minis in the movie...awwww....oh oh..and Seth Green cracked me up (he of Buffy and Rat Race fame)...we were actually joined at Tau and the movies by a 'mysterious' person ;) no prizes for guessing..but yeah...it was a good night out...alrighty then, i'm off to rest my poor peepers...ta y'all! ;)

A DAY OF REST...AND A WHOLE WEEK TOO!! ;)
music: Destiny-Jordan Hill, Jim Brickman
holidays are finally here! looking forward to just sleeping in and being a bum...but not too much of a bum as i still have work to do! Got back some papers yesterday...and got As and a B (The B was sooooo unexpected..i expected a C or D) hehehe...hopefully these grades will take away the horror that is my phys chem test...it was terrible...horrible...vegetable...
for the first time in my life....i just blanked out...i remembered NOTHING...i'll be lucky if i even get 5 marks out of 100...most of my paper was blank...and what i knew didnt come out...and everything i didnt know or remember came out...i was very close to screaming...phys chem was never one of my strengths anyway...but this was BAD!! i have to make up for it in the second test...and like...get a 100...:( darrrnnnn...today is kinda slow-moving...might be because i woke up not too long ago...enjoy ni my holiday ;)...
was supposed to be at this volleyball game last night...well i think i was anyway...but i didnt know abt it til too late...and then i dreamt of volleyball...aiyaaaaahhh! so stupid my dream...hehehe...anyway, im gonna go off and prepare for this afternoon...laters!

THE LAZIEST OF DAYS...
been a bum today...have a phys chem test tomorrow but i cant seem to get anything into my head...i feel so languid and lazy...sometimes i wish my brain was like a sponge you know...soak up all the information and knowledge. Tsk...and then being the lazy person that i am, i took a nap...it was only supposed to be a half-hour "power nap" which resulted in me waking up half an hour later and then dragging myself up the stairs into my room and unto my bed...snooze-ville... eeesshhh...why why why?!*pulls hair and wails in despair* so melodramatic huh? :) teehee...im looking forward to tomorrow being the last day of the mid semester...maybe thats why im a lazy bum bum...looking forward to the break...but in reality, i doubt it will be one as i still have truckloads of work to finish up...YUCK! and they say we dont know how its like in the REAL world and working...PAHHH!!! as for rachy and stephen...guys...i have no idea wats going on..i do know that steve keeps popping up in places that rachy is as well...but rach honey, you have to know his hauntings are pretty much very predictable...he's either there or there...if you get my drift...;) he's just harmless anyway ;) teeheehee you guys made me laugh anyway...thanks...luv ya loads...ok gtg get some din-din *mmwah* all!

FOUR MORE DAYS AND COUNTING
Four more days til the mid-sem break..woohooo!!! anyway, been so busy lately...so its time for another recap...
i cant really remember what happened during the days before i went to Bintulu...hmm...anyway we left for Bintulu on Friday...we went by car to Miri and then flew by MAS to Bintulu...We used the new bridge to Miri...it looked kinda weird as it was at a funny angle...we were hyper all the way-we being the four girls-Janet, Jerica, Rebecca R and me. We were just being giggly and all girly...our flights were at different times, the rest of them flew off earlier and Auntie Jane, me and Evelyn (a leader from Miri) flew off an hour later. The retreat was at the Similajau National Park and it took AGES to get there! The others who flew earlier were actually waiting at the airport for us. I was told that they played kiddie games like pepsi-cola and cara kaki and what not...and running amok around the Bintulu airport...good thing i wasnt there...memalukan eh! hehehe the retreat was fun...tiring as well...we took lots of pictures...oh oh and the park is like right next to the beach...so it was beautiful...God really moved in the retreat...and it was spiritually refreshing...although physically we were tired, i believe our spirits were energized. God spoke to a lot of us and healed many wounds...spiritual and physical...so it was amazing to see what God was doing. :) We (the original students from the YLS) had to plan games and there was this one game where they had to run as a group with a bamboo pole btwn their legs...so hilarious! hehehe...and then we played this water game where they had to pass water in cups held in their mouths, and no hands...lots of ppl got wet noses or wet faces...teehee...
Got back on Sunday, really tired...even went to school late teeheehee...:) oooopppsss...it was just English i missed anyway....and then been busy with assignments...today was particularly stressful..handed in one report, had a test, and later i have to finish up a chem assignment due tomorrow!! ahhh!!!
well chien...there's stuff for you to read now :) thanks for reading anyway :) okie take care all! *mmwah*

BINTULU, HERE I COME!
mood:tired but happy
music: Bootyman-Craig David
First a re-cap....
lizard dissection- disgusting, smelly and quite fun watching the girls scream hehe (i wasn't one of them ok...) ;)
genetics practical- finger still hurts from the lancelet that was used to poke me to get my blood...the things we do in the name of science..aiyaaahhh...bangkak laaa
got back my inorg chem test paper...got a 72%..which isnt that bad although i still kick myself for a calculation i did wrong...8-6 is 4?!!? waaat!?!? hehe and i got a 100 for the short phys chem test...sorrylah if cam kambang...very rarely i get good marks...and also very rare for me to understand phys chem hahaha!
i'll be leaving for Bintulu for a retreat...its the ADYC (Anglican Diocese Youth Council) Youth Leaders' School retreat...i attended the first ever ADYC YLS in December and we are "graduating" this week haha..what an honour it is to be the first to attend this "school"...we were taught many things abt leadership and our roles in our parish...even our Bishop conducted a class...wow! :) i'm actually trying to complete whatever is necessary before i go...i think i deserve a break from this hectic schedule...but i dread to think of the workpile i'll be coming home to (three prac reports, a chem assignment, two tests to study for)...ahhhh...so i'm trying to complete whatever i can before i go...so i can enjoy the retreat without worrying abt work back home. Pls pray for me and the rest of the group as we head down to miri and fly from there to Bintulu..for God's protection and journey mercies...i'm kinda scared of flying now...*sigh* okie guys...take care...see ya monday! (that is, if you're in my uni!) haha!

music: Where is the Love -BEP feat Justin TImberlake
been a pretty hectic week...and its already thursday...where has the time gone?! :p still have more assignments to hand in but im glad the greater bulk of it is over and done with. i got back my organic test paper today. Was pleased to see that i got an A yay!:) i really thought i messed it up. however i got a 3 over 5 for my english...which was probably well-deserved since i didnt put in much effort into it. I still think it's a waste of time to have english *sigh* no interest whatsoever for me. Had a good lunch at Tau today...saw my neighbour rach and sheena as well...and i had waffles and ice cream for dessert..mmmm yummy in my tummy! :) im glad tomorrow is a friday...although i have yet to start on my phys chem assignment and study for my inorg chem test ahhhhh...so much to do!!! i'm still glad my bio tutorial is over...oh oh...i actually caught 3 lizards yesterday (the lizards in the house have been running away from me hahah!!)
and gave it to the lab technician today...and the lady told me that next week, for dissection, i'll get a big one since i caught three, and my lecturer said i would...hehehehehe :) yay! it IS gross...but at least a bigger lizard would make dissecting easier...
