A bouquet of surprise from S after his final paper 


Summer 2 starts next week.

I'm not ready to get out of bed at 7 in the morning. Neither am I prepared for the 5-hour break between lessons every Monday and Thursday.

My math module annoys me most of the time. I have disrespectful classmates who honestly think they are freaking hilarious, and take advantage of the incompetence of my lecturer who lets it happen. Sometimes I feel really bad for him.

I will be taking a level 4 psych module, just to clear my credits. Let's see how it goes.

My favourite dish of the night (besides the duck, of course). Egg whites with crab meat!

Both of us couldn't finish the food because we ordered too much again, unknowingly. But it was such a satiating dinner! Courtesy of his mum. ^_^

Today I came across a blog. It is en français.

The author was told by the doctors that he had only 30 days left to live. He counts down by writing a post every day.

To date he has only 9 days left. The blog is updated 11 hours ago.

Each post is potentially his last.


I carry a heavy heart.

What would you do if your days are numbered?

Oh here's a perfect egg that I made by chance earlier this week! Yolk is neither dry nor runny.

Anyway I can't look at another egg now because I just had 2 hard boiled ones...

the difference between you and him

IMG_4729

we went back for my favourite truffle fries
and some beer

will you still love me if i'm fat?
i asked you (again)

i will still love you
i will grow fat with you
and when we are tired
of being fat
we will lose it together
you always say

(i remember
just last year
being the backdrop
being the black and white
that make the neons pop
i tried to glow
i wanted so much
to drip in gold

but i was only grey
at most

i wanted to be all the hues
he couldn't keep his eyes off
but no matter how hard
i tried
i knew
i was only the black and
the white
he couldn't keep his eyes on)



to the boys who
make these girls feel
like achromatic colours
make these girls fight
and crave for the attention
you have somewhere else

don't you know

that black is the absorption
of all colour pigments
that white is the light
that contains all the wavelengths
of the visible spectrum

and one day someone else

will know how
to be the prism that refracts this light
into a rainbow
that you failed to see

with those eyes of yours
that were always
so busy

BEERFEST!

IMG_4647
IMG_4651
First round of beer. We had a nice table at the side because we were 5 minutes early for the event, therefore one of the first to enter.

IMG_4648
Shiraz was the sole food vendor. We had SO many chicken wings (nothing beats Nana's by the way) and so much cheese fries. Other than that, the food was generally trashy, and overpriced. Drinking gives me the munchies all the freakin time... I just kept stuffing myself with food even though I was already full.

We bought a few Taiwan fruit beers to try. I think many girls love them simply because they don't taste like beer at all. They are not bad, but nothing worth raving about. They just taste like any other normal sweetened drinks, except with a little alcohol (3.5%). I prefer Früli strawberry beer!

I have never liked beers (maybe with the exception of Blanc) until I tried Coedo at Beerfest. Honestly I can't remember how it tastes like anymore, but I was sold. We went back round after round.

All Mok wanted besides beer, was this elephant hat which we finally got our hands on after agreeing to buy a bucket of beer from some vendor.

Chicken wing again. We were really not hungry at all. It was the munchies. :(
