I'm bored, but im pretty happy. Yay ^^v Had the mood to dress up nicely today even though im not going out in the evening coz im having bible study bAH... I'm in the lovely pink top i got over the last weekend, and also completely with new matching stones and beads earrings plus new sandals!
Reached office at about 11, went to ask my sup my plan for the day. Ended up with she asking me " Huh, u haven't run the gels ar?" So im like.. "Oh i didn't" since she didn't tell me to. Luckily i didn't, if not i'd have to come back on sat. Hiakhiakhiak. So she mentioned tt if i were to run them today, i'd have to come back on saturday to do stuff.. So im like "HAR" Then she asked me if i can make it or not, and i said i can't. So i asked her if i can run the gels on monday, then today and tml i can do my final report (as if!) ROFL. Wahahah` And she gave in and told me to go do my report.. So i'll be a slave next week, working very hard.. But slacking today and tml!
Phwah i'm such a genius. =) I really didn't wanna do anything today, coz tt'll mean i can't go for long lunch with simon and melinda today, somemore to ngee ann.. hmmm` So yep. haha` I got it my way ^^
Went for lunch at about 11.15, took bus down to NP, had lunch at the Mega Bites, i ordered carborana!!! Maybe tt explains why im damn high now coz whenever i get my dosage of pasta, i'll go bonkeeees.. Met marcus sk and yi wei at megabites. haha` And SK was feeling so nostalgic abt it all he began doing the nice buddy handshake with me. rofl and even asked for a hug. =)
So yep. Met alot of other ppl, same lecture, not same lecture, wadeva. Went and explore the lab area n also the office of the lecturers. Too bad can't reach Huang Yan coz we wanted to get the final report samples from her. In the end, we went to atrium to jalan jalan, and then back to 83 coz huang yan called us.
After collecting the report samples from her, we took a cab back to workplace at 2 coz we were super lazy and too tired to walk ^^ And here i am, slacking, using com, surfing net, jamming mp3s. Think i'll go at 4.30 or wad.
I miss my luv. Finally can see him tml. I'm so happy!!! Wahahah` And he's like quite ecstatic to see me after a wk of interesting and new stuff happening. I hope he's getting along fine at his camp huh. haha`

Watched vcds from 10+ am when i woke up till 2+, then had lunch at home and went out with my mum to chinatown. We took the bus CT8 from the bus stop near my place and it's super fast coz it runs on the expressway. So yep. We reached there in about 20 minutes.
Shopped around, finally gotten myself a pair of lovely sandals ^^ hehe` I'm so happy!! Also bought a choker and 2 pairs of earrings made of small coloured stones. We then went for high tea at Ma Lan La Mian coz it's having a 50% discount from 3-5 pm. And i wanted so much for mom to try their mango and prawn fritter coz it's soooooo nice hehe` In the end, we ate mango Muah Chee, pork rib la mian, mango and prawn fritters and xiao long bao for only 8+ bucks!! It's even much cheaper than my earrings and choker.. Wahaha`
I paid for all the expenses today, so it's like 50 bucks *poof* just in the 3 hrs. haha` But im really happy coz my mum is =)

Sudden Insomnia =(
Feeling no good at all. haha` Especially when u're like super tired and u can't sleep at all. Turned in at 11.30pm last night.. And woke up at 2+am to go to the loo coz drank too much water before sleep to cure my sore throat. Took 2 panadol extra pills before going back to sleep. Woke up at 3+ again and couldn't go back to sleep. So might as well entertain myself by watching teevee and dolphin bay vcd. Didn't catch a wink till now. And here i am, surfing net.
I'm sick, down with fever and sore throat. Thanks to the nice guy simon, he's so sweet, left his whole box of strepsils and a note on the workstation, telling me to get well soon before he left for home after work. Took today off, told my supervisor le. Think im gonna go shopping with my mum today. haha` Since im feeling much better now. =) But before that, i think i need to catch some sleep first.
Smsed hammie just now. Was telling him that "If i own a car, i'd drive down with a big breakfast to his place to greet him in the morning. " And he was telling me to take good care of myself, if not he'll "heart pain pain".. Hee` Was contemplating about the ironic thing in hammie and my life now.
He's like travelling to and fro lakeside station to yishun station everyday whereas im like travelling to and fro yio chu kang station to bouna vista everyday.. It's like entirely different route. And he replied that maybe it's fate trying to play ppl out. Haha` Anyhow, we've met each other anyway. ^^
Good morning =) but it's back to slumberland for me *Grinz*

I miss you.
Just changed my song to lin jun jie's i miss you (wu jin de si nian) I really love this song. Hammie would always sing to me whenever we're in our own world. And he's a great fan of JJ, mastering his every song. If he's gonna sing to me this particular song,i'll really melt.. SHHH dun tell him!
Hammie's transferred to nee soon camp, which is like only 10 minutes away from my place. haha` Hoped tt he's gonna stay long term at my place so tt he won't have to travel from boon lay to here and back everyday. Once again, i must say that he's the greatest person who's ever stepped into my life, apart from my family.
Didn't manage to treat my family to dinner at some Indonesian restaurant tonight coz mum went out since morning and was too tired.. She went out with her pal today and bought me a very lovely seashells windchime!!
Met up with chris at J8 at about 5+ and did some shopping. I bought a pair of Berms from Fox for darling, hope he'll like it hee`
Afterwhich we went to pack KFC and some other stuff home for dinner. I'm happy!! hee` And im so looking forward to starting school and meeting new frens and also already quite familiar ppl like melinda whom i've gotten crazeeee with during attachment.

Stomach's soooo full now.. Just finished a 1 litre Pear and Passionfruit Yoghurt packed drink.... Gosh, bought it yesterday, but didn't realised tt the expiry date reads today -.- So much for gulping down. Anyhow, i feel so sleepy and tired now.
Just came back from amk central with my mum. Had dinner there as well, and did some shopping. Still didn't get manage to get heels/slippers. But i got a really lovely top ^^ hehe`
Spent the day at home yesterday with mum and hammie. Afterwhich hammie and i went to Toa Payoh for dinner and also did some shopping. Dined at the jap corner we really like alot in the food court. Haven't eaten there for a long time, but the standard is still as marvellous as ever! Muahah, especially the unagi maki. WAHAHA`
We went to Yishun to catch the 9.40 pm Ghost train show... Quite a sad and thought provoking show. Had a great time with hammie and nowadays he suddenly picked up the habit of carrying me on the escalator -.- Waited for the last bus home at 11.40, and then gotten supper for the whole family ^^
Slept at 2+ after watching teevee and a nice chat up session with hammie. I really love him alot. And it's been cool to know that i haven't lost my passion at all for him after so many yrs =)
Took some pics in my room before we went out yesterday evening.
Hammie looked quite funny in the above pic.. haha` it seemed as though he wanted to smile yet frowned at the silliness of it all. ^^
Recently read some novels of different authors whom i've never read before. Found their writing styles really good. So yep, gonna have more choices next time!! ^^v Gonna be a sluggish couch potato with a nice book before going to slumberland.
Thanks to daryl. Who said i'll be in for a surprise, just waiting for Chris to open the letter box. Wondering wad early bday gift im gonna get from him.. thanks bud.
Wheeeee it's family day tml!!! Erm.. Or rather.. Family night!!!!! =)

Wahaha. It's great being at home. Went to work early today to view the immunohistochemistry slides i have.. Learnt to use the fluorescent microscope to view my DAPI stains. Spent about 9 hours today viewing slides, plus another few doing western blot. Anyhow, i stayed till 8+ coz have to finish viewing the slides asap for fear of the bleaching effect of the DAPI stain. No choice.
Was feeling quite terrible having to know that i have to stay late for work. But i'd rather stay late today than having to come back tml. Called my mum to tell her, and she was asking me if i was crying coz my voice seems a lil cracky... And i said no, just that im feeling super cold in my office.. Then she went on to tell me get a cup of hot drink and all. So i was really touched and suddenly missed her so much, then i ended up tearing after i hung up. The feeling just overwhelmed me and totally took over me. I love her so much, yet it touches me even more with the little gestures she showed. And hammie told me tt im like a gem in her eyes. Yep. True.
Got over it as soon as it came. Got down to work while the others went home =( Felt quite lonely. But the sense of achievement after taking pictures of all my slides was even greater. Finished at about 8+, then my sup said she wanna carry on doing my western blot coz we didn't get it right, so she'll have to finish at about 9+. I'm fine with her le. My tolerance goes a long way ^^ And it's only that day she stepped over the line, but i didn't talk back either.
Anyhow, im happy today ^^ Even though im not able to go out today with frens. This whole weekend is fully dedicated to hammie before he reports to CMPB hehe` But he's also gonna be quite slack due to his medical ondition and i can get to see him whenever i want to, so wad's the deal? hee` I feel like going KTv, long time didn't go le. =( My hands are itching to get money off my wallet. heheh`
Yixian came over to my place last night. She brought her CPU over to be hospitalised in my hse. hehe` Had a great time chatting and watching teevee together. Chris and my mum even extended the invitation for her to stay at our place for free coz it's convenient for her to go to NYP.. haha` Anyhow, she stayed at my place for a little whole and had dinner before she went home at 10+...
My birthday's coming soon ^^v Guess it's like last yr, 9th with pals and 10th with hammie lovely + family =)
Muahaha` I'm so mean!!! See my evil and cheesy grin ^^ Jas' beautiful curly locks are gone. hehe`
And now, i'm torn between shopping in SG coz have GSS or shopping in Bangkok. ^^ I'm afraid that when i get everything i want here b4 i go to bangkok, then i'll have nth to shop for there. hehe` Well, we'll see.. I'm so excited for tml to come!!!!! I miss my Honey Baked Ham Muahaha`
We suspect that Beethoven is suffering from breast cancer, coz one of her breasts is swollen and would have blood and milk coming out from it. She's really having difficulty even to get up now, and would whine now and then. Sigh..
Here are some shots taken of me and beet. (Was so afraid tt she'd pass away so soon) Therefore if u see the pics of me which seems like im nt wearing clothes, im actully wrapped in a towel after bathing in the morning, rushed to take pics with beet before i go to work.
Oh, and this lovely dog has cataract. =( I love her so much i believe tt if lord were to take her away from me, it feels like a kin is lost.

The title explains my emotions for the past few days - Spent. My emotions been very rapidly showcased, at least to myself.
This lovely dog has been with me for a whole of 14 years since i was 5 back in 1991. Shall publish some shots of her sometime later coz im at my workstation now. When i think of her, my heart will ache. This morning, i saw her lying on the floor, couldn't get up at all. I wiped off her hardened eye shit and lay her head on my lap to rest, patting her for a long time which i dun even care if im late for work.
She used to be a tiny black and white furball (small size) when my brother picked her up frm the streets back in 1991. Till now, she's grown so tall and big that it's a vast difference from when she was young. She's been very sick lately, having diarrhoea, throwing up and can't even walk properly. She's really old, 98 yrs old in dog's age.
This morning, i was telling my mum that we'd cremate her when her time's up, even though i know it's extremely unbearable for us. I was even asking my mum if we could put her urn in our hse.. But she flatly refused to, saying tt the columbarium would be good enough. Haiz... I feel terrible and sad. It seems to tug at my heart every second today, wanting me to remember this sad matter.
I just hope tt if the Lord wants to take her, please let her leave peacefully instead of having to make her suffer for a long time and wanting us to take the euthanasia approach. I don't wanna have to take away her life, yet i dun her to suffer too.
I'd go home everyday for the past 1 yr of my life, hugging her and calling her AH-MA
coz to me, she's like my grandma, being loyal to me for a very long time.
Quite pissed with my supervisor at work lately. She doesn't even have the decency to ask me if i have anything on when she makes me stay late to do work for her. She doesn't even help me and just sits at her workstation doing her own stuff.
Was terribly angry with her on Tuesday coz she didn't even demo to me the right things to do, i dun even have a protocol to follow. And when i do the correct things but in the more xin ku way, she kept saying that i dun have common sense, and it's not once or twice, it's like alot of times. It 's super unbearable, but still, i can't do anything but to tolerate.
So now. i dun wanna go find her and ask if she has stuff for me to do. Kindness is not appreciated at all. I'll just stay at my workstation, minding my own business, surfing net and reading novel, spending leisurely time during my attachment.
I'm even coming in at 11 everyday, slacking, going shopping during lunch hour and then going off early. I dun care anymore. I'm just pissed with her.
It's like 2.22pm now. Gonna continue with my post... Was interrupted just now coz my supervisor came and told me to do work. Like Finally. Anyhow, she asked me if i could stay late today to view the slides.. I said no coz im having bible study session. I was super shocked. She actually told me that the project is mine, and not hers. She's only here to supervise me. DOTS. -.- So i challenged her, saying tt this is not my 3rd yr project, and that we're not supposed to be given projects in the first place. So anyhow, she's gonna stay late today but definitely not me.
Like WTF lor. She was like saying tt im not like Simon and Melinda, only do certain experiments over and over again. She wants me to learn a variety of things, which i'd gladly say i'd rather not. FUCK. *Growl* I'm super pissed. I feel like strangling her and telling her to get a life. Hey dudette, im here to ASSIST u. Not to have my own bloody project which i ain't interested in doing in the first place. Anyhow, i just finished the sandwich my lovely frens bought for me. Due to heavy workload, i hafta stay here.
CRAP. Total crap. 3 more wks and im outta here. Outta ur life. Cool. Just gotta bear with it for the time being. Stupid china ppl.
Went out with hammie yesterday after work. He was faithfully listening to me ranting abt my sup. Met up with him at 5.30 at Bouna Vista Station. Went to citylink and suntec to shop. Got cheese and unagi sushi home. Had a great time with hammie, especially visiting all those interesting shops. Eyeing tt nice glass chess set for him ^^
Met qisheng, my pri sch classmate in suntec which jalan-ing... Said hi and bye only coz he was on the fone. He's still as petite as ever. hahah` ^^ Alright. I'm bored at work. Grrr. I loath work now. Am gonna try to make myself as sick as possible and get leave. =) Deal.
