2007 was great, and it certainly ended off with a bang.

I can't wait for 2008. Basically for me to take in all the lessons, triumph and disappointments in, and use them to be a better person, working on my past mistakes. Somehow, I don't find any feelings of dismay, or rather, any urge whatsoever to waver towards the dark grasp of emoness- like ' oh, i regret not...' or 'If only I....'

For myself, I just see whatever mishaps that have happened this year, and turn them into good next year. Or take whatever good things and blessings that I've received this year, and turn them into something great (or greater). Either way, I thank God for the opportunity of 2008 to improve on every aspect of my life (hopefully).

You can very well tell that I'm far from being emo now, I suppose. Heheh

And...2008 would be good because it marks the beginning of the 3rd year in which the Local Laundromat is in operation. Yeah. It's gonna be fun I'm sure.
More Fun. Crazier. Trashier (or maybe not)

2008. I even just love the way it sounds- Twenty-O-Eight..

It's the Eve of New Years Eve!!
Or for those still in the festive spirit- The Sixth day of Christmas!

The current situation for my Geography holiday homework isn't looking good. I have yet to start studying for the "quiz", let alone scribble a single shit on the mind map of rock joints. Rock joints??? I mean, how obscure... Selection of the titles of the sub categories itself would be such a pain. And yeah, I should probably stop here before I get into rambling mode.

Start freaking revising your work, Matt.
We're not talking about conversion to a nerd with his 1000 degree glasses glued onto his face, buried/plastered/smashed/whatever in books and piles of notes.

Just please please stick to the plan of light, regular revision.
And the plan of starting to work out and exercise next year.
And being a better member of the family
And making a conscious effort to learn more about your career
And a conscious effort to think before I speak... and ... and...

Oh I suppose I've run out of resolutions for now. Ah well.

In between my incessant urges to lose my excess fat and replace it with muscle, I remind myself that I don't exactly hate myself. I just need alot of work.

Physically, I'm a pathetic chicken wing with a face that's relatively easy on the eyes- and that's it. A heavy reliance on my face as you can already tell. Which is the reason why I'm a total vain pot. I spend lots of money on skin care products and I suppose I don't have any qualms letting people know that. You gotta work what your mama gave you.

And yes, I better start attempting to be physically fit coz putting all your eggs in the basket puts you in a rather vulnerable position. What if I put on more weight and my face looks like absolute crap?? Then what am I gonna do?? Rely on my flabby, untoned, unsexy bod?? Yeah right.

However, despite my current situation of not havin g a fit bod, I suppose I'm recieving ample compensation from my face. But complacency shouldn't be in play, I have to start working out or whatever for 2008.

AH-HA!! There you go! One new years' resolution! And mind you, when I set my sights on something, I freaking hell make sure I get it Heheh

ps: this is not supposed to be emo

6:45 PM

It was once again another satisfied customer at the Hairdressers' in Far East. They never fail to impress. Or least do a decent job.
I wasn't the customer, but Mr. Silly Cowboy was glad.

Right.. And I was strolling about Wisma and found out that Topman is having a sale!!
Damn!! I've got to go there again before the year ends to spend my moolah--
In The Name of Vanity and Style
Which reminds me- I've yet to collect the good progress award bursary money from school. And my O level certificate, long overdue since March. Heh

And I've learnt several things today:

'The Ketchup Song' is actually satanic, which I find completely hard to believe. How could such a song be satanic?? Maybe the person who told me this was high on crack or something, hahah

I keep forgetting that the Wisma Atria underpass is closed

And Mister Cowboy's backpack is so cool! I wanna loan it for next year! Please??

A big hello to everyone!!
I know I haven't been updating very much recently, especially during this second half of December, but I assure you folks that I'll be back with more trashy entertainment. And here I am indeed!

I really really hope that 2008 turns out to be a great year. Or a relatively pleasant one at least. It's just so strange to look back and remember that gawky, wide eyed, uncontrolled crazy boy walk through the gates of CJC in the beginning of the year for the very first time. My life's never been the same ever since. Hahah.

Yeah yeah... I know this is all starting to turn a tad too cheesy and cherry pie with a ton of whipped cream on top.

Arghh!! Crap.. I have yet to get started on my geog revision for that "quiz" we're having. It's funny how they give you a quiz to make it sound less intimidating and more anti 'holiday aftershock', but at the end of the day, all of us know that this is just another one of those 'bash your head against the wall for forgetting all the stuff youve studied last year for promos' moment.

*Imagines myself moping over the pathetic U grade I might get if I don't start reading up on my freaking notes!*

Har har har... Enough with the cyncial visions, Matt
I will not get a U. I will not get a U ...

I will continue to be a hardworking actor and entertainer and friend and student for 2008.
And be hotter and more crazy and fun.
The thought of all these makes me high with excitement. Whee

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

I'm excited for 2008, but somehow excitement spurs feelings of anxiety and uncertainty.
Hmm... Only time will tell

2007 has been a great year.
And it just got better.

Santa did drop by with an early Christmas present ;)

Denis channelling 1920's glamour with that feather thingy

Uhm... World Peace

Denis claims that this is a 'Street Fighter' look. I honestly don't know what kind of drugs she's been doing..

Styling by Gabby. She taught me how to tie a skinny scarf. Can't find the handkerchief ones though.

Masticated crackers

Nice hat, Gabby

It's Beverley- going out in her CJ T-shirt. Genius.

You see that cherry lollipop in my hand. Yeah, I love cherry lollipops

Snow White's one of my favourite Disney films. But this is just farcical...

11:08 PM

I was supposed to head to Starbucks this evening for a simple get together with friends, but was held back because of some family dinner and mainly thinking that my mom and I would head to the Concourse for some Christmas deco shopping.

Just don't ask me why- putting up the Christmas tree is not an entirely joyful thing. It's more like a design project, where the theme has to be planned and executed well; with the consideration of the types of ornaments used, even the types of material used. Needless to say, it gets pretty annoying at times. Fun but somewhat annoying.

So... In the end, for some weird reason or another, the trip to Concourse just didn't happen. And that pissed me off. As in, it really did. Not because I'm some Christmas tree decorating enthusiast, but because of the wasted chance to hang out.

I must go out tomorrow. Or it'll be like some sick farcical joke, with me as the laughing stock.

You Are the Ace of Clubs

You go at everything in your life full force. You are a natural gambler.

Your life definitely has some extreme highs and lows, but you know how to ride out the low times.
A total adventure seeker, you are never satisfied by what's normal or ordinary.You like to push limits and shock people. You're dramatic, but a drama queen.
Your life has been a wild ride so far. You have stories that people can barely believe.And you're probably still young... with a lot of wild rides in front of you.

A gamble you should take: High stakes roulette
Your friends would describe you as: Crazy
Your enemies would describe you as: Demented
If you lived in Vegas, you would be: A high roller

What Playing Card Are You?

It's Drama King, not Queen. Sheesh.

I got an electric shock from one of the faulty string of christmas tree lightings. It was slightly painful, but pretty cool nonetheless. For all you know, I might just develop electrical superpowers after that incident. Heh heh... I'll zap the brains out of people whom I have extreme difficulty getting along with (which is just about almost none I presume?) AND... I'll feed their carcass(es) to my hounds... muahahaha...

Sorry. A little bit of Demetrius flashback going on there.
The line before Sondra gets to slap me.

I don't really go to the Bugis Street Markets often, but I seriously think that it's da bomb. Good stuff.

Yeah, and I'll be heading out tomorrow for more chilltime.

It's so funny how I've grown completely numb to scoldings from my mom, since we make it an effort to have rather conflictive arguments at least once a week. (Yeah, it doesn't take much to figure the sarcasm in that)

Although we've had a horrible track record involving bouts of shouting at each other, I think I'm quite unaffected by all of it. I just let her yap on while I stand there blurting an occasional 'Yes', 'Yeah', 'Okay', 'I agree' or 'You're right', with much sarcasm dripping from them. It drives her absolutely nuts when I do that, but you could say that it's somewhat entertaining.

Almost like a dark comedy you could say.
Ala Samuel Beckett.

Anyhow, I'm collecting the money for the class chalet that my T1 mates and I enjoyed earlier in November. So, please reply to the messages I sent to the bunch of you. I'll arrange a day where we could meet up.

Heh. My mom says she's very hesistant to leave me alone while the rest of them go on the "family" trip to Malaysia. Boy am I not surprised. Yeah, she thinks that I'll set the house on fire or something. Get Drunk. Kill someone. I don't know.

More errand running tomorrow. And not forgetting, another trip to Bugis Street Markets for more shopping (Thursday perhaps?).

Your Passion is Yellow
You're a total sexual shape shifter.You possess a complex sex drive and are very adaptable.Of all the colors, you are the most likely to be bisexual.While you are the most passionate, you are very open minded.

Oh yeah, bring it on

11:33 PM

Yi Ting is living in 1993, and eats barbequed pork for Christmas instead of Chinese New Year. I know you wanna put an Asian spin to a well known holiday season, but seriously- Barbequed Pork?! Lol. Yeah yeah.. I know, I'm just kidding about the BBQ pork thingy.

Oh and she doesn't know what fishing is.
Gee, I made her sound like a bimbo. Haha

I almost lost my temper assembling the 7ft christmas tree, but I finally did it. Hurray.. ...

And I need to go out again.
Bored as hell

7:50 PM

Saturday, December 08, 2007

Well.. It was a typical mundane Saturday afternoon, partially due to me being kinda broke. Which reminds me- I gotta start making those Christmas cards. Oh let the inspiration be with me.

Anyhow, I decided to have a little fun with photography today.

Photographer: Matt J Fam

Model: Serafina Fam

Clothes: Top from 'Girls'
Shorts from 'GAP'

Accessories: Watch from 'Flik Flak'
Shades (model's own)

YES! We've finally selected a coach to work with the drama society..
So let's get this show on the road.

Yeah, it's true that we've had our fair share of conflicts, disputes and disagreements... We're not perfect, but so long as we put our differences away and do the best that we can, I'm sure we'll kick ass ;)

I just really want us to forget whatever negative energy that any of us, as a society have been harbouring so far, and just put on a great show.

And as the legendary Freddie Mercury from Queen once said (or sung, rather)

9:44 PM

The sky put on its cloak of grey. And wept.

A great day to spend playing board games indoors with friends and stuff. Unfortunately, none of that happened. Just idling about. And wishful thinking (once again)

I feel this incessant urge to hang out with friends and socialise.

6:09 PM

It's back to the milk and ginger snaps

And the guilt that trails..

1:25 AM

Tuesday, December 04, 2007

Oh. I just got my allowance, so that means I wanna go shopping for stuff soon. Well, I don't don't know what kinds of stuff exactly...

I'd probably get myself a book to read.
Cheap boatman slip on shoes from Bugis Street? Oh then I would have to get some knee length trousers to go along with that.
A new lip balm to fight those occasional chapped lips?
Maybe a pair of skinny jeans from Peninsular..
Uhm.. Perhaps scarves? Those square-shaped ones--

I read from a magazine regarding an interview with Pierre-Alexis Dumas, artistic director of Hermes International and also the sixth generation Hermes family member (talk about keeping the bloodline pure).
This was what he said:

"Men should wear scarves, inside the collar of an open shirt, a bit of colour,
roll it very tightly, make a knot- not loosely like a woman, looking like a
flower- the ends inside the shirt."

Something like what King Thesues wore in CJC's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Not exactly so, but yeah.. along that line I suppose.

I don't know.. I feel like getting Christmas presents.. So I'll need to plan out my budget. For myself, there are just many things to be thankful for- especially this year. And yeah. I've grown in many ways and I just feel like giving back.

I sit in front of the computer screen eating ginger snaps with milk.
And for some reason, I find it so melancholy.

Like I'm so naiive and stupid to not choose another form of late night snack to indulge in.
Or so hopeful that I'd have the most satisfaction eating such a choice of food.

What makes me think that this is the best late night snack that I could have?

Oh just ignore all that. I'm just ranting randomly.

I get such random wants these past few days.

Somebody shoot me for being so hopeful.

As the great Gabster says on her msn nick--- BE CONTENT

I can't explain why, but I tend to get this heightened feeling of anxiey and a sense of minor panic whenever I don't interact with people other than my family. Like there was this one time during the day, where almost nobody was online, particularly the friends whom I'm close to. And that for some reason, freaked me out quite a bit.

Then I called Sam and asked him if everything was out of the ordinary that day.
Hah. He must've thought I was losing it. He did actually. Well, sort of; I just got laughed at.

Oh and I bought this oval mirror from Ikea yesterday for my room.
kinda looks like the Evil Queen's mirror from Snow White, which is precisely why I bought it.

It would look much sexier after my room gets a major paintjob, but that comes later I suppose. Along with a change of cupboards and things like that.
