Apart from the horrible rash and excruciating butt-aches, today was great (: really cherishing the time spent with J cause we have so little time in between us to start with.
Oh and my brain is really rotting- I can actually feel myself getting stupider and having less stamina! Jap class was fun, finally learning something I’m actually interested in instead of conforming to school syllabus and all that. A rather refreshing experience so far (:
Eh and I really cannot think anymore. Long blogpost next time.
So, it finally happened. All I can say is, I’m really glad that it did, and for it to turn out the way it did, I really can’t ask for more (:
On a lighter note ( though I doubt how much lighter it can get), I might be starting on a job soon! Which, coincidentally, means that I can shop/eat/play more. That, coupled with the fact that my Jap classes are starting tomorrow.. Pure bliss. A timely preamble to my next phase in life i.e. NS, but that is a story for a later time. Oh and to whomever it may concern, all the best uh, serving the nation and.. protecting my family. I’ll be joining you in 3 months!
Chinese New Year… just isn’t what it used to be. There just wasn’t any atmosphere whatsoever, just going through the mundane formalities that comes along with the festival. That’s not to say that I condone them, nor that I dislike them- something is just lacking. Maybe it’s the lack of school, with the lousy celebrations that actually drive home the message; maybe it’s the lack of a proper reunion dinner with the extended family- something that once was, but not anymore. I really can’t tell for sure.
So just that day we went to Chinatown on the pretext of inhaling the festive spirit. It didn’t work. Instead of the bustling New Year atmosphere one would expect to find, what we got was just.. a tourist hotspot, where hawkers tried to rip off those unsuspecting tourists. That, and the fact that there just wasn’t anything much to do/eat made us travel down to Haji lane (which was, really, just as boring). But not that I’m complaining though, company was awesome (yes, Awesome with a capital ‘A’) (: So yes, it made that day very bearable indeed (:
Happy Chinese New Year! *cues lousy music*
It’s so blatantly obvious I can’t even. And I’m really just bursting at the seams. It’s that kind of, suppressed-energy-and-about-to-explode feeling. Gahhhh
