Heheh.. Drama is damn fun especially now that all of us are preparing for our external production; I find myself looking forward to rehearsals every time.
And Philostrate is not supposed to be a slave!! He's a frickin' master of revels to Theseus (The Duke Of Athens), which means he holds a high rank in the palace. Roy kept on insisting that Philostrate is supposed to be some sort of a slave- I figured that he's probably just getting on my nerves. But he really knows who the character is right? He can't be that dumb I suppose.
Just slightly barbaric. But not dumb.
A small group of us were sourcing for costume design ideas in Kino. It obviously wasn't very fruitful considering the fact that Sharon hasn't told us much about her plan for the costumes. I seriously hope I don't get a crappy costume; I don't mean this in a bimbotic sense, but you know what I mean: It would damn hell suck to get a costume which is almost as good as a large tablecloth simply draped around you.
I'm a bit puzzled as to what sorts of movements I should engage myself in as I read my lines on stage. You can't possibly be anchored on one single spot while you deliver your lines right?
And uhhh...I just got a really random call from some of my drama friends: A few of them are at some school band concert, and they've got nothing to do since there's an intermission. So they decided to call just to say 'hi'...which is really random now that I think of it. But hey, it's still good company to have.
Found out from MeiQi that our class got dead last in the X-Campus relay, but you gals get a definite 'A' for effort! Good job! We're all proud that you didn't give up.
And just to make things clear before Yang Wei chooses to comment that the guys are completely irresponsible, the 4 of us seriously couldn't make it due to important CCA commitments pertaining to competitions, SYF, external productions and lenten vigil preparations. And Hisham had to leave for his prayers @ e mosque.
So males aren't as untrustworthy as she claims- It's just a hasty generalisation.
And yes, I'll say it now: Shawn is not doing his job as the PE rep and it's getting to me. I'll probably tell him that, should I feel the need to do so next week.
Come to think about it, Yang Wei has been rather PMSy these past few days. Even she herself admitted that she has been feeling easily irratable recently. Ah well, but we all have our off-days so I'll let it pass. But yeah..she HAS been very quiet and slightly cold towards me recently.
Oh the bane of bad moods- It drives everyone nuts.
T1 is in turmoil to honest with you guys... I try my best to unify the class and fufill my duties as a HTC, but some people are just not doing their part. I know I'm not that fantastic of a HTC, but at least I try to be the best I can for T1... it's freaking annoying to see certain people take for granted that everything will be done for them. I'm not your manservant you know? All of us still have a part to play.
The class flag incident was a serious eye-opener for me: Occasionally, a tiny fraction of me wonders if what Cobweb & Artist said is true...
I still strongly dismiss that thought, but sometimes you just wonder...
Oh yeah... Forgot to tell u guys: I had a minor paper-cut my lip yesterday. It doesn't hurt, but now a small section in the middle of my upper lip looks like it went through a miniature dosage of botox- sick. Ala Angelina Jolie (though I don't think she ever went for botox for her lips). Double whammy.
The lenten vigil last night was actually much more fun than I expected. It's probably due to the fact that I was with all my drama friends and the experience was made much more enjoyable.
A toast was made with Ribena instead of wine during the Passover/ Seder Meal.
A toast to deliverance, and another to a good..no wait, great production.
And who knew? The drama skits during the little procession turned out to be pretty cool, actually. Mrs. Leong (one of my geog lectures + tutors) said:
I didn't know you had such a wide range of expressions, Matthew. More than the kinds if expressions I see you give during geog tutorialsOf course this was said in a joking manner la, but I felt rather embarrassed. Coz from what I interpreted, she obviously knew that I wasn't paying attention during some of her tutorials. Key word being 'some', so I'm not a bad egg
I told the class that I was dissapointed about how the whole class flag project went: Some of them didn't even chip in to help one bit at all. At the very least, those who didn't help out in the initial stages took the initiative to do a lil' bit of work here and there after my call of distress. That, I can give credit. Thanks to all those who helped out in one way or another: The bringing of paints, paintbrushes, materials and such as well as the helping out of painting.
The 2nd inatkers (excluding Nisaa) still have quite a long way to go in achieving class unification. Their attitude towards the class flag was clearly obvious: They couldn't be bothered and were chucking all the work to me. Well..maybe not all of the 2nd intakers were like that (some were asking if they could help in any way n stuff like that). Just a few "bad apples" which I will not name.
But all that happened today is over and I should look forward to future class projects with better optimism.

And the class scurries in absolute panic as we figure a way to complete the class flag by the end of tomorrow. Well, we're not exactly in a state of panic, per say... It's obvious that some of the classmates couldn't give a hoot should we not complete it and prevent Mr. Tay from decapitating our very selves. It's rather annoying actually, constantly trying to grab the class' attention with regards to the class flag when some just chatter away nonchalantly. Very very annoying indeed. But I wasn't really too bugged about it- T1 still rocks.
Cobweb and the artist seemed to think that T1 was seriously ununified and that they were making use of me. Quite a scandalous thought, actually. Imagine if it's true; I'd be seriously heartbroken and freaking pissed. But no la, I dismissed that hypothesis immediately upon hearing it, defending T1 by saying that we're actually real united- Just that we still haven't exactly broken free from the 'clash of the cliques' just yet. But things are looking optimistic. I do believe that all the 2nd intakers will eventually gel into the T1 spirit.. Or is there any to begin with? Lol.
It's gonna be yet another long day for me tmr: Not only do I have my cca, but I still need to stay back till 10 for the Lenten Vigil. And I'll be helping out with the skits too. Busy busy busy...I sense my eyes desperately craving for sleep by the end of tmr , and at this very moment, it is.
So yeah. This post ends here.

Okay, in case any of you guys are wondering, the production is being pushed one week later to 2 June 07. So once the publicty sub comm finishes e new production promo, I'll replace the current one here.
Anyway, I've just finished doing my 'late night maths tutorial' on functions- Stupid me for even staying up to complete my assignments; Your eyes are screaming for sleep. You should be sleeping instead of blogging..But it's all for the fans- The avid readers of the Local Laundromat: The ones who put up with my random writting/complaints/theories/experiences/nagging.
Oh! Just remembered abt mass pe: It was a bitch. Essentially so. However, it wasn't THAT bad to the extent that I could purposely vomit all over myself. Now, that would most certainly be gross. It (mass pe) was still quite tolerable. However, I couldn't stand the annoying guy who was constantly "encouraging the group" shouting stuff like 'more pushups' and 'no sweat'. I have no idea what that guy's name is, but if you had given me a shotgun at that very moment when I was in agonizing pain, I would have jolly well shot him in the head without any remorse.
Similarly, the feeling of maintaining the push-up position after 70+++ push-ups was like sticking your arms into a industrial shredding machine. Okay...that's perhaps too much of an exaggeration, but you get my drift: Mainting push up position after doing 'blankety-blank' pushups sucks to the core. No doubt about that.
But let's not brood about the less than pleasant things in life. There's always T1 to talk about!! Yeah! T1 rocks!! Yep...Shu Xian's once unanimously agreed gorgeous tan is peeling off, making her look much rather like an escapee from the Communicable Diseases Centre (joking la). Yes, even she herself admitted that it looked like leprosy. I don't think so though... It's just a temporary dispigmentation of the skin which will eventually go away. So we hope you get your normal looking skin back again soon, Shoes! As in, seriously..I'm not being sarcastic or anything.
And as usual, during recess some the girls were being their usual lusty self, but they were better behaved as compared to yesterday (Yesterday was just terrible). We somehow ended up gossiping- I know! I know! It's very wrong for me to do that, but I just can't help it ok? The girls we throwing in such juicy topics, I just had to comment on some of them. It was found out that _____ hates______, and thinks she's a bitch; that came as a surprise.
More talk was said about Natasha from T4- You know, that girl who spent most of her life in Canada, and speaks with a foreign-I'm-so-much-better-than-you-so-why-don't-you-just-fuck-off kind of accent. Yeah, that one. The overly tanned one. Yes, the one who wears makeup to school, even to training. *Exasperated sigh* Yes, the one who most of my classmates said looked plain, and that she only looks hot because of her tan (natural or not, i couldn't care less).
But I have to agree with them, she does look rather plain..and snobbish at that. But first impressions don't really count i guess...She may turn out to be a nice person after all...Well, maybe not. She's racist against her own race and has no Asian pride. She doesn't even like to hang out with people of her own ethnicity- The irony of it all. I think that if I continue, I'll start a verbal diarrhoea... Besides, I could get in trouble for all this. She might get her white friends to come and beat me up.
So I suppose I shall shut my mouth now for verbal diarrhoea has dire consequences.
Point to note: All that was said abt Natasha frm T4 was a recollection of what I heard about her. I am not by any means reproducing any of these facts from my own accord or from the figment of my vivid imagination.
It's already 12.13 a.m now, so Good Night one and all.
You may see with large eye bags tomorrow.

Now, THIS is what you call advertisement whoring: Placing the Production promo at the head of every single blog post. And if that doesn't catch your attention, I don't know what will.
This blogskin absolutely reminds me of the cityscape in Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World"
But anyway, I'm still having trouble with the html coding and stuff like that. Part of me wishes to highlight random words in these posts from now onwards with colour for your visual orgasm, in hopes that you guys won't get overly bored with a sea of white fonts. But anyway, it's really far too troublesome to do so.
Someone just help me with the html coding. A little elementary tuition please?
So back to the rationality of my life:
Got back from Drama Camp a couple of days ago- It was duper fun!! (Duper in short for 'super duper') The 'spooky' scavenger hunt-esque night game, the crazy water games, the fun improv drama games and the drama workshop we had from Sharon- All of it rocked my socks.
During the workshop, we basically had to split into groups and do loads of self composed skits. Loads of acting done, as the name of the workshop suggests, but it was fun nonetheless.
And I got casted an acting role in CJC's A Midsummer Nights Dream!! (Casted as Philostrate)
Yeah!! I'm gonna put up the e-poster on my blog pretty soon to help promote the production. The EXCO was tellin' us that TJ and the Singapore Repertory Theatre are putting up the exact same production this year as well, so we gotta work doubly hard to outdo them- And I know we CAN, coz CJ people are all cool...Okay, that didn't link to the statement, but nvm.
Rumor has it tt VJ's gonna do the same thing as well..So that makes 3 opponents. Yikes...
But Sharon's got a GREAT plan for our version of A Midsummer Night's Dream, and let me tell you, I have a feeling that it's gonna turn out fantastically magnificently fantabulous.
So watch out for it.

I'm rather appalled by the inexperience of some of the 2nd intakers during the H2 Literature lecture we had earlier today. My word... especially that small group of guys in 1T02. It's either absolute daftness on their end, or they're just fooling around. Either way, they were darn annoying and I sincerely thank whoever it was from 1T03/4 that asked them to shut up.
They took so long to copy the slides, and they basically copied every single damn thing word for word even if it's mere slides of Aldous Huxley's biography. Really dumb, i think. Very dumb indeed.
Anyway, one of our H2 Lit lecturer pretty much threw down the gauntlet to the rest of us Lit students by mentioning CJ's stellar record in literature. 75% distinction in one of the lit papers?! Thank you very much for the excessive pressure. I certainly feel very stressed. But I guess it's just a way to push us to strive for excellence.

Got a bit pissed with my P.E teacher today.
The class was being told that we needed to send 4 people for the inter-class X-Campus relay race, in which each person has to run 1.8 km each.
The class was generally unenthusiastic about the event (I mean, you can't blame them coz such sporting events are generally perceived by most of us as a waste of our time). Anyway, the ODAC girls, Yang Wei & Shu Xian signed themselves up. And then we needed preferably 2 more guys, since the rest of the girls didn't wanna sign themselves up at all.
So that was when Justin and I volunteered ourselves out of the 4 of us guys in the class. The other 2 were not that interested either.
So when I began to write my name down, Mr. Ho had to come along and totally doubt my physical capabilities by saying stuff like " Matthew you can run meh? Your timing only 12 minutes for 2.4(km) you sure or not??"
And I can bet my money that he wasn't saying this in a joking way...If he did so, I wouldn't have taken this so sensitively. He was even so persistent in flipping through his clipboard finding my 2.4km timing "track record" to prove that I can't fast.
Wth la... You should be at least appreciative that I volunteered myself even though I didn't have any intention of doing so initially. And the icing on the cake came when he passed a comment that I'm "undernourished" so I can't run well for the class. That was very very unnecessary in my opinion. Extremely uncalled for.
I know I'm not one of those macho, alpha-male guys in our cohort, but I'm certainly not unhealthy or undernourished..for goodness sake!! What is his problem?!
Oh!!I'm SO SO sorry that God created me with a less muscular physique. And I'm deeply repentant that I'm an absolute shame to the entire male species......My arse.
What the sh!t, this is complete crap. And I know all this pushing is for the NS, that is a given. But it wasn't very ncie of him to do what he did...and it WASN'T the first time.. You can't blame me for being a late bloomer you know. Seriously.
The NS is complete shit too. After my compulsory 2 years, I'll just get the hell outta here la..
The country doesn't owe me anything, neither do I owe it anything likewise.

The past hour has been strangely worrisome for me. Don't ask me why, but it's just those sort of unexplainable feelings you get: In this case, I was just suddenly overwhelmed by this heavy feeling of resignation and worry.
Perhaps it's because I've got loads of stuff on my mind.
Firstly, I was flipping through my school diary calender and found out that the PTM is in 2 weeks time. I unconsciously exclaimed the f-word loudly and only realised it about 2-3 seconds later.
And the Student Council Nominations are arriving soon, not to mention the Leadership training Camp.
And I've got Drama Camp end of this week.
I've been seriously pondering if I should try for Student council or not...
The problem is that I'm unsure if it will clash with Drama.
Furthermore, I'm not even sure if I'll get enough votes to enter! I heard that many people will be signing up for council... the limited places in SC will certainly be hotly contested, meaning that only the nominees with the top votes can get in.
And as u all know, no matter what everyone says, getting into student council is still a popularity contest at the end of the day.
AND for whatever crappy reason nominees give for joining council, the reason that is shared in common will surely be for popularity. duh, hello? Please la, a fraction of the reason why anyone with a right mind would wanna join SC is beacuse of the popularity one would get.
Complete pride-soaked, self centered popularity.
Yes, it is these motives that drive the human being to achive greatness.

The group of us hung out at Vivo yesterday since it was Martin's B-day.
Can you believe it? It was actually my first time there- I'm a total country pumpkin. But yeah.. Vivo's not as big as I imagined it to be...Or maybe that's because I didn't make the effort to walk around the entire shopping mall. I mean, where's the fun in that?? Unless you're looking for an absolute cardio workout. And in this case, exercise was the last thing on my mind.
But you know what? I think I was fascinated by the sparkly flooring throughout the mall. That certainly caught my attention, like some juvenile five year old. Yes, you could say that in certain ways I behave like a kid.
Spent about $30 in PageOne buying books and magazines when I could've spent it on clothes/computer games or something like that. I'm such a nerd, I know.
The store's bookshelves were darn interesting; so topsy turvy/tilting left and right. I suppose I got quite a headache looking at them. And they're so curvy whirvy as well. Navigating my waythrough the different literary sections was like some stroll in a Garden Hedge. I mean this in a positive way though.
A definite artsy bookstore I must say.
Lol, and just when you thought that Barbie would always remain in manufacturing dolls and never have the chance of makin' it life-size, check this out (Look left)
It came quite as a surprise to me: I wouldn't have expected Mattel to expand Barbie into the cometics industry. But in a way, it's good I guess.. So many people grew up with Barbie, including me ;) but NOT by playing with the dolls- Sheesh; what were you guys thinking??
Instead, when I was a young lad, I used to strip my older sister's barbie dolls and "learn about the female anatomy" and find it so funny. Okay...Now that I think about it, I just potrayed myself as a pervertic young boy. But it's seriously normal right? Weren't we all gigglish and ticklish about sex n private parts when we used to be young children? For example, the word "kiss" would summon a chorus of "Eeeeee" from a group of kindergarten kids.
But anyway, the whole Barbie set at Vivo was pretty cool: There was this very simple two-storey dollhouse structure. And the group of us actually wanted to stick around in the event there was some sort of a fashion showcase. Now, that would be very nice eye candy indeed :P

You really can't expect much to happen in my life especially during the holidays we're currently having. I hardly lead the life of a social butterfly which is why I dwell in darkness; awaiting for the next sunrise... Right...Maybe that's taking it a lil' too extreme. But you get my point: I'm lazy. I don't hang out much because I don't want to.
I haven't been having any inspiration to sketch, blog or even do some reading for that matter.
The only interesting stuff that's been happening in my life these past few days was Sam's and Martin's visit and the Drama auditions.
Sam n Martin dropped by on tuesday, I think. We pretty much hogged the tv playing gamecube. And more gamecube. After which, Sam was suggesting to us that we watch the 'Divas Live' DVD which he brought.
For a split second, I seriously could've sworn that I thought it was some transvestite beauty pageant. So u can simply imagine the momentary look on my face when Sam suggested that- A look of absolute confusion and possible horror.
Sam: Hey do u all want to watch 'Divas Live' DVD?
Got into drama!
Drama auditions went great; better than I expected.
I had to recite this completely emo monologue which was about love and betrayal- something which I was completely uncomfortable with coz I'm almost too new in the game of love. So everything lovey dovey/mushy would be rather awkward for me.
But you know what? That's the thing about drama- being someone completely different on stage and in character. It's basically a masquerade of invisible masks which we put on.
And yeah... Real glad that the seniors were "quite impressed". I was even asked if I had any professional training- Oh the glory of saying 'No'; in assumption that I'm an absolute undiscovered talent like a diamond in the rough. *Cue spotlight* Yes thank you, Thank you one and all!! Lol
Of course I didn't display my happiness towards anyone la... Just darn proud of myself inside. Like I've proven my worth- Hoo hah! Ka-pow!
We haven't been told of which sector we belong to, but I really hope that I get an acting role- Especially for the upcoming production: Shakespear's "A Midsummer Night's Dream"
And once again, I find my fingers getting absolutely tired and sianzified.
I'll post the monologue which I chose to recite during e auditions in the next post or so.
Around 1 month ago, some nun, who was also a close family friend, approached me to help her design this invitational card for the 200th anniversary of the establishment of the 'Order of St. Magdalene'- Some group of nuns I think.
I said 'yes' to the design job then, and I'm beginning to regret so now... Apart from the unimportant fact that I'm not being paid, I'm being faced with alot of design restrictions because this invitational card is going out to all those of religious order (Nuns, priests, religious). Therefore, the design has to remain relatively mild and lukewarm.
Not very happy about that.
Gotta get it done by the end of this week (drawn, coloured and everything)..

A limited, almost non-existent budget makes Matt a sad boy.
A limitless, properous budget makes Matt a reckless boy.
But nonetheless, I'm wishing that I had more money to spend- Oh the bane of all that nickleless nonsense!!
Ah well.. Might as well blog about my new class.
The original 10 T1ers have remained, but we were joined by 7 2nd intakers- 2 of which are in the process of appealing out...Which then makes me the only guy again. Sigh... 'Oh Joy', as Yang Wei would say.
But being in a class full of girls aint such a bad thing, coz then you'll be the most good looking guy in the class :P...But then you're the only male there to begin with, which makes it all a complete paradox.
And of course, one of the perks being in an almost all girl class is the freaking juicy gossip sessions!! Muahahahaha!!!
Gossip always gets ruthless which is why I kinda take joy in it. Evil Matt.
But you know what? Gossip aint for girls and fags only, as what the typical person might think. Guys gossip too- Look at me! A shameless confrontational gossiper (but I'm a nice guy too). And yet I manage it all without a broken wrist. Gossip takes guts- To be vocal about your opinions.
So boys and girls, generate some conflict and do your th'ang!!

Right.. When I'm blogging this often, it could only mean one thing:
Yes; I think I like the smell of fresh magazines- The smell of paper in general. I'm so weird.

Sunday evenings can be real boring sometimes. I've been asked to head to town by Colin and Martin to check out the free performances in the 'Mosaic Arts Festival'...But as usual, the lil' ol' country mouse inside me is violently protesting:
*in an dreamy-imaginary squeaky mouse voice*
"No No!! The noisy hum-drum form all that monstrous traffic!! The glaring city lights!! The swarming crowds of people!! People!!- People who look and dress better than you!! Go eat shit and die!! Gyyaaahhh!!! Rawrrrr..."
Well, that was random.
Anyway, point is: I'm such a slob as of now. Listening to music and checkin' out...
GOOGLE EARTH!! Huzzah!!
The tiny blue marble we live in is indeed such a beautiful place.
I managed to locate our beautiful island---
Behold Singapore!! In all it's glory- A cacophony of pixelated mess.
And also check this out:
It's CJC!! Our big blue family!
And in the process of meticulous observation and a good sense of direction, I loacted my house- Whoop-dee-doo!
Yeah...and after fiddling about with Google Earth, I'm back to being bored. Once again.
Perhaps during tomorrow, I'll slop on tanning oil and spend the day sun tanning at the porch? It's actually quite a good preposition if you think about it.

Decided to switch over from Fencing to Drama during the so called CCA exhibition we had.
Fencing was fun while it lasted, but I seriously felt that I could put God's gifts to better use by joining a performing arts CCA. I will never be those tall, tan, buff sports dudes so I should just stop trying to be someone who I'm not. If God loves me for who I am, why can't I? It would be best to just embrace my talents and strive for excellence with them.
Besides, I've been rather enthu during sec school whenever we had drama projects or inter-class competitions. Furthermore, I think drama boosts one's social confidence, and I feel that I could improve in that sector- I'm quite the livewire, but my shyness has always hindered it. Darn that thing!! Lol.
And all the many confrontations I had with those fill-in-the-blanks back in sec school?? If you don't consider that drama, I'd stick my head in boiling mud! Ahh...Those were truly the days; where I snapped and stomped in fury. It's kinda embarrassing especially whenever I look back at all the times I exploded in absolute rage resulting in massive verbal diarrhoea with a capital 'D'.
I'm a peace-lovin' dude, but yeah...if you think of crossing me, you really messed with the wrong guy.
I just found out from spoilers round the net that Loyang lost to Hwa Chong in the semi finals, in 'The Arena' 89-11. Damn pissed about it. Freaking hwa chong pompus pricks.. So disgusting.
I'm not gonna watch that stupid show anymore.

I'm really just too exhausted to blog in such an extravagant fashion after house night at CJ- The energy was explosive, but not as great as 01 where the actual "pure blood" started from. Had a ka-pow time nonetheless (meaning I had a good time).
I don't really worry not being in the same class as my previous classmates during the first 2 months coz the odds are really in favour of us. There's probably more than a 50% chance that T1 will remain as what it was. Either that or we'll be peppered with a couple of "mudbloods", or 2nd intakers if u insist that I refer to them as otherwise. Or... We might just see T1 and T2 merging- you never know.
But you know what? The 2nd intakers are actually nice people. Apart from the few wayward shitty pai kias, the rest are good to get along with, so I have no qualms mingling with them.
My eyelids are weighing a ton as I continue this blog post.
So I shall end of with random facts about me:
I like the colour green and I have a severe tendency to commit the deadly sin of envy.

Here are just a couple of quizzes I took to burn time.
Sunday, March 04, 2007
Hey y'all dudes and dudettes!
Welcome back to the Local Laundromat! We don't do your laundry, but we certainly give you a heck load full of meaningless entertainment!
Now, on to today's blog post, shall we??
The weekend was completely boring. I really miss all my pals @ 1T01 + friends at CJ. I'll wake up in the morning wishing that I had school that day (sick right?) Well, maybe so, but I'm sure there are several twisted T1'ers out there who wished they could go to school more often...coz at CJ, the fun never stops! Okay fine- I sound damn cheesy, but CJ's a great place. A far cry from those nerds/freaks/ego bastards/perverts/wackos/pricks/f***wits whom I encountered in my previous class in Cat High.
Soooo....To the beloved 4-9 of 2006, YOU SUCK!!!! (not all of you; just the majority)
Nuff said about the trashy secondary school life I had.
On to other more important stuff..
Note: The pictures above this post will aid in your visual enticement. Please look at them. Thank you.
1.My younger sis was making some origami and she gave me this string of amputated kitty heads stuck onto a piece of rectangular paper.
I certainly found it absurd that the kitty heads were detached from their bodies. They're smiling away so happily when they should be shrieking in absolute pain *Meeeeoooww!!! Rawwwr!!!* But anyway, let's not get too morbid in our thoughts.
I found the middle kitty (as seen in the picture) particularly disturbing because it's eyes are positioned in such a way that it looks like it's either being suffocated or drowning. I'm imagining a kitty being abused by those psycho cat killers in Singapore. Very traumatizing indeed.
And look at the kitty's nose: It looks infected.
However, amidst all these kitty imperfections, I still hung that origami craft work done by my sister inside my room. So whenever I look at it, I think about prevention of cruelty towards animals.
2. I did a lil D.I.Y home improvement, or room improvement rather. Created a small workspace in the corner of my bedroom for all my sewing stuff- I engage myself in occasional projects, so I figured that I might as well create a proper area.
3. Yeah..and after setting up that sewing workplace, I decided to do some repairs to my clothes with holes- T-shirts, socks and...underwear Lol. Also did some minor alteration to a few pieces of my old clothes. You see, as a poor fella like me, I hardly have money to go shopping so I'm stuck with the same old assortment of clothings.
Buuut. Whoever said that you couldn't take this problem in your own hands, and revamp some of your old clothings??
It's really as easy as pie: If you're not confident in your alteration/sewing skills, start out with an old piece of clothing, such as your everyday old polo tee (as seen from picture).
4. And with some very basic fashion knowledge (unless you're a hermit), just do whatever you think needs some sprucing up or whichever. What I did so far with the polo tee was to create the layering effect by simple punctuation of the sleeves.
We all know how how hot, humid Singaporean weather occasionally makes us decide not want to layer our clothes for that extra pizzaz in our outfits. So let "artificial layering" take over this disadvantage and take matters into your own hands. Mother Nature disagrees with layering in Singaporean fashion by tormenting us with freaking disgusting weather, so let's show that cranky bitch who's boss!
The next thing I'll do with the polo tee is to alter the collar area and add further distinction with white.
5. I'll talk about the 'Bitch Day' badge some other time.. My hands are starting to get damn tired from all the typing.
6. Bought new sports shoes for school usage! (Ignore the stacks of newspaper in the foreground- I know it's unglam but they're for the rag-and-bone man)
I just had to get those shoes. The metallic outlines (silver+copper from the nike logo) is freaking 'in' la. Metallics rule this season.
Colin seems to think that they're very ugly and plain. But anything that's not outrageously gay is plain to him so I guess one man's trash is another man's treasure. Besides, I refuse to wear shoes that make me look like a freaking madi gras exhibitionist.
So you think the shoes look boring? I don't think so.

Not really in the mood to blog so pardon me if this post lacks in substance:
The final days with Amadea in 1T01 before she switches over to the science faculty- We'll all miss you Dea!
Anyway, things have really changed this year: The winds in which I used to sail are no longer favoured by me (This line is never really meant for you guys to decipher. Go figure it out if you bother to)
Went K-boxing with Amadea, Yi Ting, Cheryl, Jamie + Joel. Didn't expect Joel to be tagging along, but okay la... I'm glad that we at least socialised a bit... That is if your idea of socializing is laughing at that person's jokes and that's it.
Took some random photos (from top):
1. Yang Wei taught me how to make a hand elephant with the aid of a ball point pen/marker. It is observed that certain adjustments of the thumb can make the "elephant" more like an anteater as seen from the photo.
2. In K Box: Songstresses Cheryl and Amadea coo on as camera-shy Yi Ting and Jamie hide their faces in possible shame?? *mock sqealing* "Eeeyerr.. No photos pls! I look so damn unglam"
3. Amadea and Yi Ting (Behind Dea) playing Zuma on their handphones, paying completely no attention during chinese lesson. But who can blame them? Chinese lessons bore me to tears too.
