the story of the class ball~! (which should be floating somewhere on singapore river..)

YAY! it's quite amazing our blog is still alive. i know i know. i've said this like.. countless times. nevertheless!! =)))

anyway, it's kinda late and i've slept about.. 5 hours in the past.. don't-know-how-many hours cuz of stayover for movie marathon and various million other stuffs. all i can remember is running from place to place. in any case, presenting our very own 7d-wishball, with our dearest lovely model, jaime, posing with it =)) ain't it cute. got it randomly (don't know who suggested it!) when we were walking towards our normal haunt (kbox!) at suntec during class outing (woohoo~! made possible with many thanks to organiser jinrong. first in a long time and great turn out!). sorta wrote our 'wishes', though it's really more like spamming random crap like 'kaiherng sucks' (oh man so sad. who wrote this!), 'we tio scolded', 'it's a plane. it's a bird. it's a WEEMAN', 'i love chem', *various ppl* love 7d, 'kat sends love from UIUC', 'niklas is a BAD neighbour', 'soonhuat is antisocial', etc.
enjoy the pictures and squinting at them =D

it was quite a fun and hilarious attempt. and yes, we did get scolded by the people there for hogging markers ('not all of you are writing right?'), kicking the balls ('this is not soccer' or something along those lines), choosing the ball we want ('can you take those already over there'), and stuff like that o.O i guess we were rather rowdy and a tad inconsiderate.. but still =(

anyhow, here are 2 clearer pictures (my handphone camera isn't that great)!

Monday, 29 December 2008

firstly i have to apologize for behaving as tho i'm not a part of the class, letting the class down in so many ways, e.g. not really reading the blog, allowing it to die, and i rmb with much guilt how wl almost strangled me at the airport the night i was supposed to fly off and how she texted pple to tell them abt it.

last time i read this blog, it had kinda gone into hibernation so i stopped, and then nik told me today that there were updates on the recent class gathering, and i found out tt avid bloggers were blogging about sch/army life...what made me decide to kick myself into blogging here was cm's post that totally caught me off guard cos it was so unusally sentimental :'( awww

well..i'm not sure where to start about the u of I besides the fact tt it has a long name - uni of Illinois at urbana-champaign. yes it lies on 2 cities, west half is champaign, where my dorm is, and the east half is urbana, where my future apartment is. decided that it's much cheaper to get one on a 12month lease so that we can save alot more money on food, cos it's cheaper to cook on our own, and alot healthier too. every meal is a buffet, and with all the new food there is, who wldn't be tempted to try everything. you have that, and the fact that my school is in the midwest where the weather is crazily cold and i need to kick myself to get out of bed and exercise, and you end up looking more prosperous than usual.

what strikes me the most about school is how independent everyone is, and how much freedom there is to do what you want to do. we have some hours to fulfill for our major, some general education hours, and elective hours. my school is a public school, meaning that they offer a huge variety of majors, and we're allowed to take level 1 classes from almost any major. i've had qte an interesting semester this fall...psych 100 is my only psych class cos it's the prerequisite for everything else. besides that, i took global history, a music class that teaches vocal techniques, a community health class abt drugs and society, and a religious studies class where i learn the bible as a lit text. there are so many opportunities around..many diff performance groups putting up their plays/musicals/concerts/standup comedy performances whatever and the details in chalk on the sidewalk or pasted on the toilet doors, community service stuff, volunteer opportunities for psych studies (almost got into a very good paying one but they rejected me). we're such an agricultural state (main crop being corn) that we have buildings for animal sciences, crop sciences, dairy sciences etc. kinda mindblowing. anw, i've been the slackest in my whole batch, being one of the non-engineering pple and, like how aaron has felt guilty being slack, i've felt guilty the whole semester as well. they get quizzes every week, while i'm practicing singing as homework.

anw, for those who were wondering what it was like during the elections, i wasn't there at chicago, but when the announcements were out, pple on the floor of my dorm were screaming, running around, cheering, crying etc. it was highly emotional and most pple really wanted obama to win. well, i just joined in with the screaming anw. haha. it's really different in other states, like when i went to texas to see my relatives, they all reacted so differently to the elections. well...they're the united states, but the line that divides the democrats and republicans is rather well-defined.

also, my school has the biggest greek system in the country, meaning we have countless buildings for frats and sororities with different permutations and combinations of 3 greek letters. who wld know what they mean man..i cld prob come up with a random combination and there's a high chance that it exists. anw, there'd be a few weekends when pple wld go "rushing" from frat to frat, get to meet the frat brothers, see if they like u, and if they do, u're in. unlike what i first believed, there's not much initiation - at least tt's what a friend tells me. there are professional frats for those in the same major, and there are social ones for all the partying and drinking. partying starts on friday, and the dorm wld be super empty except for mugger singaporeans like me and my best friend cum roomie, but we've learnt to go out, have fun and have stuff like 2am suppers at the international house of pancakes. back to the greek system, it's amazing how they're so developed tt they have greek merchandise in the bookstores..sweatpants with the letters plastered all across the butt area, shot glasses, wine glasses, notepads, shirts etc in hot pink and other girly colours.

for the rest of the stuff, pls refer to my fb pics or my blog. haha.

back to being sentimental, i just kinda miss the familiarity of the routine lives we led for 2 years, seeing the same faces every morning, sharing our lives and forging those friendships even for those brief 2 years. the opportunity to create those bonds just seem to get shorter, don't they? u'd think that jc was short enough, but it's worse in the army, even for that brief 6 months i was there. 3 months with girls, and then 3 months with guys..and it's repeating itself here in uni too. 6 months of a fixed set of classes with random pple that just happened to select that same slot at the same location, listening to the prof speak, submitting assignments and all...after those 6 months, the class is over. the prof gives his final lecture, and the students file out, nv to meet again. if u're lucky, u prob made friends with the pple u sit with during lecture. otherwise, it's a brand new start once again next semester. new classes, new profs, new classmates...for a while i just wished some things were constant. but we're just individual faces that make up the crowd of 12,000 pple. whew.

if working pple say that life was much better in uni, i wonder how we shld view the future. haha.

whatever it is, it's interesting looking at what we've become after a year. i've no doubt that many of us will achieve great heights in our respective fields...but i just hope even more that we'll all be doing what we really want to do, myself included :) maybe one day, when we re-write that list, there'd be a journalist/pastry chef/whatever among them. haha

A HUGE thank you to you all who posted, it was just so lovely catching up and feeling like, in some way, I was really sharing part of your lives. Coming back to this class blog after the longest time, expecting dust and cobwebs, and somehow seeing this place so lively is..honestly..the best post-exams present ever (:

It's strange that old feelings of sentimentality can remain so dormant, and be stirred up again by mere words on a computer screen. But then again, words penned by you all are just..different. A lot of it has to do with..thinking back to the first few moments and first impressions. And then reliving everything we suffered together (some lessons filled with tyranny and fear (or maybe just for some of us who didnt do work and/or fell asleep in class)) and riffling through snapshots of the class (honestly it appears in my mind like black and white photos (but i can also choose to play it in video form lah) - am i just abnormal?) - our addiction to captains' ball. going DAMN EARLY to bio lecture to read notes (yes we are true blue nerds). our hotdog tuesdays. somehow knowing our class would destroy the way the results bar chart looks (but then again, it became normal once our 3 titans left for intl competition HAHAHA). early mornings at the class bench. the warm and homely feeling being with you all. our ever-enthuness for school events.

You know...reading the class blog in the past was like...entertainment (but then again I found a lot of things entertaining right ha ha ha). Reading it now though is altogether different experience, like snatching a peek into the way our lives have all diverged. And it's so amazing right, how many of us would have thought this far ahead or, even if we did, the intensity and the reality of this change? It's like we all get swept up in the speed with which new things, new people come at us...

For me, SMU law has been...intense. Wish i could say im loving every moment of it but the MUGGING REALLY SUCKS SOMETIMES (right,jane?and all the other uni ppl?and army guys hang in there it'll be over soon(: ) still i DO love it mostly and im so so glad that i chose the right school and the right course and i know this is what i really want to do...(: (though sometimes still a bit sad about not being able to go overseas lah. But. The grass is always greener over there)

Made many many new friends..that's the gift of moving on right? Somehow, though, 06s7d is really special to me (honestly..e.g..i would never say the same thing for my NY classes) for reasons I don't know, or don't feel able to articulate right now..but I'm sure..most if not all of us share this something that belongs so exclusively to us. It doesn't have to be verbalised. It just..exists (and I'm glad it does)

Miss you all so much (contrary to what I stupidly mentioned at the class chalet bbq last time and which i NOW FORMALLY RETRACT) and do take bestest care k meet up soon! (:

P.S. ANYWAY in case anyone was wondering, yes my laughter is still as uncontrollable and famous in uni! (omg i think it got worse actually!!) the law kids have 100000 names for it (kind of reminds me of you all! haha) and most of it involves insanity provisions in the penal code, etc. sad.

P.P.S Btw I'm somehow damn slow at math and science now looks like STP didnt get to reap its fruits of labour after all haha :X

november 23rd!

okay that title was no big deal because I couldn't think of a nice title. But anw it's 4am and there's no better time to sleep because my exam starts on monday post on the class blog!

well well well, to all other singaporean guys not in med, here's a glimpse of uni life from the perspective of a 19-year-old singaporean guy who's not expected to be in uni just yet.

So... I don't usually hide my age, but i think there's still a handful of people around me who think i'm 21, which is kinda fun. Not that i like to act old but well it's just fun (you see why i'm in fos not fass cos if i write essays with arguments like that i'm not gonna do well). but anw, a typical conversation with someone (let's say a year 1 guy) i've just met goes like this:
him: "hi"
me: "hi"
...some random what's-ur-names and how-is-lifes and which-fac-you-froms and OH let's talk about the which-fac-you-froms...
him: "which fac you from?"
me: "sci"
him: "oh. which major?"
me: "life sci"
him: "oh. do you know -insert name 1-"
me: 'no' (typing single-inverted commas is easier)
him: '-insert name 2-?'
me: 'no'
him: '-insert names 3,4,5 and 6-????'
me: 'erm no. no. no. don't think so.'
-silent pause- (maybe he's thinking 'ok this guy's a loner') then
me: 'life sci is huge. like A LOT OF PPLE. yeah.'
-moving on-
him: 'so which sch u from?'
me: 'hc'
him: 'OH so you must know -insert name of famous councillor/joker/randomnotoriousperson from hc two years our senior-'
me: 'no'
him: 'NO?!'
me: 'errr actually i'm 89 batch'
him: 'oh. med?'
me: 'no.'
him: 'm'sian?'
me: 'no.'
him: 'foreigner from some other country?'
me: 'no.'


sch's pretty okay so far. fun at times, sian at times, busy at times. normal stuff. fun cos i just smashed a piece of cake right in the middle of someone's face for the first time in my life, sian cos my lessons start at 8 all the time, busy cos there's alws some usp writing stuff to do (jaime can testify to that).

i shall let pictures do the talking too:

NUS condo and my room: the place i've been staying in most of the time (except during the weekends) for the past erm 4 months or so. what pgp really lacks is a swimming pool, then it'll really be like a condo. ha.

typical life sci lecture. well. actually i've only got 1 life sci module this sem.

somehow i spent quite a lot of time behind booths. selling stuff/giving out stuff/asking pple to fill in survey. but the selling of food is really quite fun. it's for my yep (ocip). going to vietnam this december for 3 weeks! there goes my holiday... but oh well i'm not regretting.

this photo was taken during the last chem lab session. chem prac really isn't what it used to be. no rudylee to tell u what to/demonstrate stuff =( it's go online, download the prac, watch videos online on how to do all the new stuff u've never done before, scribble those steps on the inadequately-described practical handout, go to the lab, start doing ur stuff, and when u're done hand in ur work (usually a sealed packet of whatever sample you've purified) and then leave. at least that's how my org chem prac went. but i've got great bench mates so it's not that stressful.


well i saw this hanging in a car. if you manage to read what it says, it's this guy declaring his love for his manliness in the I <3 NY style. hint: it says "I <3 MY P...."

HA! bet the last time you went for an excursion to the zoo with ur cher and ur classmates was like long long ago. I went last week for the biodiversity module. it was raining too. and it was one day after the white tiger incident.

and finally.....

I photocopied my fone. -.-
hey! but it looks so artistic can? i shldn't have folded the paper. but it nonetheless remains nice enough for me to want to pin it up on my noticeboard.

wishing everyone a great 23rd of november and to all those taking exams/CAs soon, best of luck too!
nehnannypoopoo my exams end on 26thnov nehnannypoopoo

(hm u know like. less than 3? like <3)

omg it's 5am OKBYE!

from me

It's great to see this place so alive. I think we're getting more and more used to the fact that our lives have moved on, and this blog has become a place through which we can only hope to stay in touch.

I don't really like talking about army life. But anyway, for the sake of updating you guys, no, I'm not a third sergeant in BMT like Yongzi's list suggested. Somehow I'm in the most chiong-sua wing of the army, the Infantry, and I'm a section commander here. Now's lull period while we wait for the enlistees to come in December and take them through the life cycle of a rifleman; next year will be a hell of a year which will culminate in Brunei and the much-awaited, much-anticipated ORD. Don't really want to say which unit I'm in; you can ask me personally if you want, I just don't want random people from my unit searching and somehow stumbling onto this blog and consequently, my blog. I really prefer keeping my army and civilian (okay, I don't like the word civilian too, because it's just such an army word. ie. when you're a civilian walking the streets, you don't think you're a civilian at all. You just are one.) worlds apart.

About why I don't like talking about army life. I think I've gone through the entire cycle of emotions you can experience when it comes to the military. I've been excited about the army, sian about it, hated it to the core, been really disappointed in it, angry with it and scared of it. I've experienced incredible joy and fun here; I've also gone through despair and desolateness, all in the army. Somehow ever since I got my third sergeant rank three months ago I've just felt strangely detached from everything. Feelings and emotions become easier to suppress, hide. I don't really get excited or happy about anything in army anymore; neither do I get terribly sad or sian - I just feel a void within me where those emotions should have been. Sometimes it feels like I'm already above it all, in a kind of tranquility, unaffected by all the things going on in the army. But of course occasionally I do get worked up too. Yeah, so if you ask me 'how's life in army?' or questions as such, it's a bit hard for me to reply. It's not shiong, it's not fun, it's not sian, it's not terrible. I just don't really feel anything anymore.

It's a very stark contrast to my life on the Outside. When I come out of camp, I begin reclaiming back those emotions that used to be a very important part of me. I think I'm learning more and discovering more about myself each day I'm outside of camp. The thing about booking-out is that it's so short, it makes you ponder what you really enjoy most in life, and consequently what you should do during this time. Some time ago I realised that, and stopped packing my weekends full with all sorts of gatherings, movie sessions and dinner outings. I still enjoy them, but I realise after a weekend packed full of such stuff, I don't feel wholesome, I don't feel super recharged, I don't feel a huge sense of fulfillment. Sure, it's fun, but after that? I'm getting in touch with my introverted side as well, and finding pleasure doing other kinds of stuff.

Dreaming up lots of plans for post-ORD. I kind of want to be a lazy bum, and not go to work at all. I'm seriously considering backpacking for an extended period of time, say six months. With friends for part of the way and alone for part of the way. Maybe through seeing more of the world, I can see more into myself at the same time. I don't see any other time period in the forseeable future when I'd be able to take so much time off and just do what I want with my life, the way I want it. So post-ORD's definitely going to be a big thing for me. Get in touch with me if you have similarly idealistic thoughts. Haha.

contrary to 'popular' belief, i'm not very free. but ok, shall save the blog left stranded and abandoned on this lonely monday night.

hmm. school's pretty much routinised and we all complain about being like living machines. you know, go there at this fixed, programmed time on particular days, do what you're supposed to do, process it, apply it, go home, repeat process. but it's pretty much about that huh? (of course, there's always the random stuff sprinkled here and there..) whether it's at the workplace, at school, in the army, 'people' (and we practically don't know who these legendary 'people' are) always have plans for us. so we just carry them out. a very surreal experience. it's as if you're there, and then again, you aren't really. you're just living out something else.

i think everyone in class is doing pretty well all around the world, a little less than half in army, a little more than half studying our asses off.. or maybe not =)

let's make a list of who's where as of now.. let me try to remember the class list..

ok i can't remember. i shall use the photo up there.

jinrong - nus med
bensing - nus med
adrian - nus med
liangen - nus med
alvin - nus fos
shirli - camb econs
jaime - nus fos
chiaming - smu law-biz
jane - nus law
katrina - uoi
wailumn - upenn biz
chernwei - lse econs

is it? if anything's wrong, feel free to change it or add stuff (like modules or courses or scholarships or double degree or majors or minors or miscellaneous programmes or ccas or exchange or what not) =) and apologies if i got it wrong! the army people can put in whatever posting, rank, etc. haha.

since i don't really have much to say about myself, shall just let the pictures do the talking..

my campus at night.. taken by a rather shaky tired hand. it's a pretty campus.. isolate from the rest of nus at krc (kent ridge campus) and quiet. nice to walk around when it's raining. then the blinds will come down automatically. it's quite funny cuz people sit at those ledges (the semicircles) and when the blinds come down when it's raining, they have to get down fast or be trapped outside with the 'cats and dogs' (read: 'raining cats and dogs'). which i find amusing. especially when they lay out so many papers and such. and i saunter pass.. apathetically. oops. haha. anyone who wants to come over just let me know =) wow. sounds like such an advertisement.

well, a lot of swearing? from coursemates and lecturers, etc. like during seminar, we were 'introduced' to this term, lppl. and apparently, the army guys are supposed to know, but we all looked so lost. google it if you have any interest. and stuff like SFW and BFD.. *to try not be influenced* i can understand if people want to swear for some valid reason, but it gets annoying when some people think they're still in army and attach profanities to every single sentence. so what if you were a commander or you were from army? every one else has toned it down or at least realised that, well, you're not in the army anymore. so get over it. wake up. show some respect.

graffiti at vivo. vw roadshow. saw my ex-colleagues from the last roadshow and they could recognise me =)) that aside, it didn't occur to me that vw and graffiti could go together. but it's really quite a cool concept. wonder how much the setup cost this time..

i always thought that the font was deliberately made small so that the books can be in a reasonable size and of a reasonable weight. the picture shows that 7 lines of the criminal law textbook can fit into the first 'joint' (*gets hammered by med people*) of my little finger. my boss used to tell me that her degrees shot up during her pupilage. never doubted that. will never doubt that. but will try to take good care of my eyesight as of now.

another page of the textbook. i won't be so naive as to think that anyone would seriously want to read it. but in any case, the point was to show that law is not that detached from science, math and equations.

ok. gotta do my tutorial now. all the best to the uni people in the mid-years (and finals for some modules)! looking forward to seeing the overseas people returning and to the short holidays too =)) as for the rest, enjoy ns! =D lol.

Hai :]

I have the honour of adding spam to the board, which is in a state sorrier by the day. But still quite ok I guess, considering I'm actually posting and I believe some people still check it :]

Unit life as a man is beautiful (uh what is responsibility, chiongsua and extra?) The environment is nice but sometimes prickly, as someone demonstrated how to make 100 enemies in 1 night.
I used to feel guilty doing nothing when people were doing things. But after a while I realised they were doing things only to cover up for having nothing to do. Anyway next week will have plenty of things to do. 2nd outfield since bmt. Bad things always happen during outfield. The last time we went out, the stock market crashed. Maybe thats why the regulars all so emo during recovery. Whats next? Palin for president?

note to jane: you also seem very free eh...

Harlo =]

I shall have the honour of providing follow up treatment for the blog, which is in such a not so sad state! But still quite ok i guess, considering we occasionally tag, and i believe most ppl still check it :)
Seletar camp is beautiful (Nice sea view, alot of assorted fruit trees and exotic varieties of birds). It is actually quite an idyllic location, you could just sit there and enjoy the sea breeze and listen to the birds sing. Quite sad that they made it into an army camp. Should have become a resort or something. I finally passed my SOC; when I couldn't pass it i dreaded staying back on Saturdays for remedial training. Seletar camp food is rather good, but it's still no substitute for food outside of the army. Unit life is rather regular and less hectic than a trainee life. As a sergeant I can visit the mess, play free pool, watch television and surf the net. Little mercies that keep you going in the army.

note to Shirli: Probably coming next year or next next year. Anyone else studying at Christ's college currently?

note to others: blog about unit/ whatever!=]

Saturday, 25 October 2008

Hi :)

I now have the role of continued survival of the blog, which is in a sorry state! But still quite ok i guess, considering people occasionally post and i believe some people still read it =)

Resummex was terrible (torrential rain, heavy loads and brown mud). The weather was hot and wet; when my handfan broke down i dreaded trying to fall asleep cos it was boiling. And when i forgot to apply insect repellant my skin would become red and even start to itch and swell!!
I used to feel guilty slacking because everyone was suffering. But yesterday i had nothing for dinner (Sentry duty!!). Tried eating last summex.. and i think the stuff in cookhouse near my bunk is much better! Sighhh. Instructors are pesky and evil. A lot of preparations needed too. And it's also quite fun to worry about how u are going to get hold of the generator which you (and 1 other) need to carry 5 stories before you can do anything. Sobsob.

note to shirli: Your college sounds very very much like paradise, heaven, and many other nirvanas!! Enjoy. Though i dun imagine you will appreciate much. Your college is also humane.. and don't worry about 5-6 redeployments!!! OR Wednesday midnight turnouts!!! When will i leave?

Note to others: blog about army/ whatever!=)

Pre-MAF Outing

Alvin and I have decided to watch Wall-E before MAF. Who else wants to join in and any other ideas what to do?

Wednesday, 20 August 2008



ok the blog is still somewhat alive.

But a class gathering is somewhat overdue!

And no event is more appropriate for that than....

When: 6th September 2008 Saturday
Where: HC duh
Time: Evening, around 6:30pm (there's this sporting event called past vs present in the day which you can go too if you're interested. click here.)

We can eat, look at moon, look at light-ups, dance, sing, go crazy and see one another again!

And here are some photos to evoke some nostalgia:

click play if you want some nice sad music to go along with the viewing of the photos









ok maybe i should've just posted the original photos because it feels as if we're 50 years old now.

and the music probably hasn't finished loading after the page has been scrolled down and the pictures viewed.

ah well you get the point.

cheers and best wishes!

Basic Changes
  1. New template (as can be clearly seen)
  2. Neglected to update list of links, so go update if necessary.
  3. Tagboards seem to be squeezing out of their columns. Lazy to adjust.
Basically, I'm a lazy person when it comes to the finer details.

  1. Underlined links look horrible: CHANGED.
  2. Jaime's face covered by an s: CHANGED.
  3. Pixelated photo: UNCHANGED. Request for someone with photoshop to do a better job for the photo montage.
Future Work
  1. Change the text-based link list into a photo link list. BUT ALL YOU MONKEYS SEND PHOTOS GRARGH. This is the 13894730891790837th call for it.
  2. Add more cool effects to the blog which, if explained in words, cannot be understood by the general non-computer-inclined population. So whatever. You know like the expanding comments list in the previous template?

Tuesday, 29 April 2008

haha! i didn't know you updated cuz it read exactly the same thing as me... till i saw the title. then i thought you edited my post. till i scrolled down and saw another duplicate then i realized you posted a new one. lol!

ok the point is can just edit post next time la. no need post new posts =)

i'm bored so i updated =)

proposal : lunch + movie [suggestions: iron man, ..]

20th April 2008

hey ppl!

keep 20th free! cuz we shall have a class outing then. below are a list of what has been suggested!

for K-ing, we managed to find a place that's kinda cheap and not bad too.

aye previous sentence looks kinda.. wrong o.O ok go figure lol.

for cycling, i suggest we go at night cuz we don't wanna get knocked down.

or we can go jb (lol! no prizes for guessing who suggested it), though uhm we must try not to get robbed.

or.. we can go kl. but it's so far we'll get motion sickness. or maybe just me.

or... sentosa..

or.. ahhh i'm getting lazy. and hungry!

so i shall leave you all to try to come up with some stuff too! =D and spam the chatbox thingee on the right. cuz i think the comments thing doesnt show up (or is it just me again?! >.<) wahhhh..



-add: we can go someone's house to rot! like on the mv channel.. lol. or..

Tuesday, 25 March 2008


HOHO i just want to say niklas looks really funny here :) this is Manhattan fish market btw, for those who can't identify it.

I hate lim chern wei btw. congrats to all the guys who got where they wanted to, be it command school or another unit :) happy confinement!

i miss going out with 06s7d a lot. i just really wanna thank everybody for everything. Seriously, i feel very blessed to be in this class. everyone is kinda peaceful (haha @ chia ming) and there arent any big fallouts or bitchiness or what not, for which i am really grateful. seriously, for a class where pple are so smart/accomplished in their own ways, you'd expect a lot of big egos pushing around and hence a lot of fights/skirmishes/coldwars/backstabbing/competition. but no, it didn't happen, which i think is absolutely pretty amazing!

im not saying we're a perfect class, because occasionally we do have our own set of problems (like perma zibei on the side of some of us) but still, we're the best that we can be. i'd like everybody to know how much i appreciate them, that it is so rare, for something like this to fall nicely into place, for us to sort of unanimously agree that 06S7D is a class to cherish. i don't know how often that has happened in your life: that you have such a large group of pple, not chosen by your hand, that can, by chance (sort of?), end up in such a fantabulous situation.

if it has been often, then you're really lucky. if it hasn't, then i think you know what i'm talking about.

much love, 06S7D. i hope we keep in contact, since two short years have flown by in the blink of an eye. an overused cliche, but it sure feels like it. all right then, true to the spirit of STP, two short years have flown by in the span of time taken to replicate an E.coli genome! i don't care what other idiots say and badmouth abt STP, as far as im concerned, we're the best bloody class there is.

it'd be a pity if we don't see each other again. if we don't, remember what once was. if we do, then let's make new memories :)

lots of love!
this are our class photos people! haha
here are the people who watched midnight movie. step up2. e gal qte hot la for one scene only. other than tt, she looks v guai1. but nice cleavage, for those interested =) for a non horny person like me, i nvr notice 1 actually. but lumn was beside me n she keep telling me abt it. pollute my innocent mind =)

this is wailumn trying to whisper to the statue. but e statue is kinda expressionless n just stunned. i _stand how he feels. tis was how i felt too when in orientation, the first time i met wailumn in e hall, wailumn jus ask "u o6s7d too?", "where r u from", "how r u", "wah it is great to b classmates as u", "wats ur name. oh my name is wailumn n i am from dunman high." i was stunned hahahahahah.

Class Outing

I suggest we have a class outing next week (17 March to 21 March) since the guys would be graduating from BMT this week. What do you all think?

Thursday, 28 February 2008

Grad Night!

Hope everyone's doing fine! Here's us going up the stage shaking rudylee's hand. Enjoy!

Saturday, 9 February 2008


Haha since I'm the one who brought the camera I shall blog about the class outing as well!

It was great catching up with everyone; with the guys, we blabbered endlessly about SOC, IPPT, army songs, field camp and which company is the most slack. Haha I'm sure the girls are getting tired of hearing about NS already. Forgive us - our lives are like CONSUMED by national service at this point in time and frankly/sadly, we have very little other stuff to talk about.

Anyway for the benefit of those who didn't go, we had lunch at Fish n Co where we just simply talked and talked and talked. And then we walked to cine, checked out the disgustingly exorbitant pool prices, and decided to adjourn to this crepes place at the basement for more food, and yes, you guessed it, more talk.

Talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk. (ok seriously there isn't much to blog about for this class outing. 2 words kinda sum it up: eat and talk)

Following which we went up to level 1 and tried to decide where to go next. After more catching up with each other and a typical-7D discussion which produced no real results, many of us left because we had other stuff on. Nik, Jane, Jinrong and I went to Nik's house for some mahjong and more talk. Haha. =)

It was great catching up with everyone. And just as JR was remarking, our class guys are pretty lucky because none of us got into the notoriously shiong companies. It seems that everyone is coping well, be it with work or NS. Like any other bookout, this one has passed especially quickly. So to the guys, time to get back to our chiong sua life. And to the girls, hope you ppl enjoy the rest of your working stint and get into great universities. Till we next meet =)


快 乐 年!

this from a chain sms I received. Wishing everyone a fulfilling year ahead! And it's not only about fa cai or hao yun. It's about going about our own daily lives, forging avenues for ourselves, and at the same time, not forgetting the people around us.

The next time you are free, go look through the archives of this blog. And though I have not been one of the more avid contributers to this blog, it's the memories that amaze me. Go read them! ^^

One for the class blog.
I promise a new blog skin within the next two weeks (aka by 23 feb, or by 2 bookouts). This skin is getting boring.
