regina has mad skillz.

have a happy new year and all the best for 2008.

come join me in my tent as i reminisce on the year 2007.



2007 was a good year, one of the most memorable too.

first of all, i had the best birthday gifts from my parents and friends.
uk was definitely a trip to remember.

secondly, singfest was a blast.
it's one of those things taht i can never get over with so deal with it.

thirdly, the new friends and blah blah blah, you probably read this on someone else's blog already so i am going to spare you the drama.

i think i've changed the most during this year, in terms of my maturity.
i deserve a gold star.

oh and i spent my last day of 2007 at nasri's house playing taboo and twister with everyone.
there was a lot of screaming and the scene did not look pretty.
mama did an impersonation of a transformer robot and ariq, who starts primary school today, taught me how to kill Zamorofin soldiers in Runescape in order to steal the their kingdom flags on time.
what a way to end it.

and ho ho ho what a day to begin the year!
my other cousins and i played paintball at a place called bottle tree at sembawang.
it was super fun, my team won 5 out of 6 games and i became a sacrficial bunny in the end but we still won so hooray for me.

but last night a piece of shit got embeded in my eye so it's irritating the fuck out of me. i couldnt sleep and thus i'm trying to conserve energy by just working my fingers on the keyboard and doing nothing else.
went to an A&E but that blind bitchdoctor said tehre was nothing.
she put anaesthesia in my eye so i was reading books like how papa does when he doesn't have his galsses.
like i was holding the book 1 metre away from my face and squinting like a mad santi.

i know my blogging skillz have been quite pathetic because everything so sporadic right now, my brain's spazzing out from all the fun i had in the holidays and i have lost all (any?) ability to think rationally.

yippee hooray

ps i wonder what the lab technician does when no one's looking.
haha i'm looking at him now.

citizens of tomorrow, be forewarned.

man, if i had a dollar for every robots-will-takeover-the-future song i listen to, i'd be able to buy a Toyota trumpet-playing robot myself.



the future really freaks me out.

Arthur Harkins, a futurist, made very accurate predictions in the past.
he said the computer would become an essential personal element of life, and he also said the worldwideweb would be exposed to more and more people at a really fast rate.
he said the rate of dynamic changes in technology would double up as it progresses.
which means gadgets beyond your imagination would appear sooner than you think they would.

he also wants to live to see these dynamic changes occur.
he said that he wanted to live forever.
seriously.
to quote,"i don't see why anyone would want to die"
he even hired the services of a "longevity expert", a doctor who specialises in keeping people alive by telling them what to eat, in Harkins' case, "8 cups of green tea, 250 supplements and alkali water- everyday. and injections every week" (discovery channel 2007)
lenubis has taught me well~.

Harkins is 58 this year.
his ancestors barely made it to his age.
and he is expected to live another 15 years.

my question to Harkins is "why would anyone want to live any longer than he should?"
the world's getting crazier, not any more sane.
why would you want to tolerate the nonsense in the future just to witness some changes that may even be the cause of all the madness?

idk, that's my opinion.
i dont want to live forever.
i dont want to take 250 supplements,
or drink alkali water every day.
i think green tea is O.K.

Harkins can go and die~

i think this has been the most enriching rant i've ever made in a while.

watch hui ping's short film on her blog.
it depicts how felt cloth creatures experience mutual love despite extreme differences.
and it's set to bjork music.
near-perfect timing.

i'm drawing the storyboard for mine.
i hope we can get compile all our shorts for a dvd, then sell.
all profits will go to Singapore's Association for Next Time's Intellects.

wow.
doug covers are awesome.
i really like his rendition of The Kids Are All Fucked Up.
it'd really make a sweet song for some sappy rom-com~~~
his cover of Slow Down is quite gloomy though :/

almost every song is unrecognisable, with an entirely different mood.
he even managed to make fall out boy $€xy?

why the fuck are things going missing at this fucking point in time.

that's better.

now.
time to clean up this mess.
D :

regina has always asked me this: "why are your parents so strict?"
and ive never really answered the question everytime she asked me that.
i've no idea really.
but i can't complain because there's no point in doing so.

and as long as i'm okie with them, there won't be any awkward situations like the house being quiet becuase of cold war or anything.
yes call it "sucking up" but it does come with priviledges sometimes.

this whole over-protected environment isn't bad because i think i'd do worse without it.

but the one thing i'm worried about-
what happens when i have to be on my own?
what happens when there aren't any rules?

I'M NOT STREET SMART.

i hate the fact that i try to prove myself as being independent and shit by straying away from the mainstream when i'm actually not.
at least that's how i think i am.

i don't know.

in the words of Derek Zoolander, "Who am I?"

this is so haha-wow-but-please-enough-with-the-comments.

mcr fans ah, a bit sore loser ah.
A BIT AH.

8:31 a.m.

this website makes me feel like a superhero.

not the superman sort.

more along the lines of a league of extraordinary gentlemen (and lady).
and maybe the umbrella academy.

at this time of the year, when the weather really seems almost too predictable, i just feel like staying home all day long~

but no.
there's some unfinished business to attend to.

i never knew i had this "€" key until now.

hey.

starbucks was giving out free drinks from 5-7pm today.
being the predictable singaporean that i was, i decided to get soemthing to drink.

i thought i was smart in deciding to go to the one at Tan Tock Seng Hospital since it's practically deserted there most of the time.

however, i was wrong.
the line was quite long and they even had to make 2 queues.
so, being the impatient person i sometimes am, i bought a cup of green tea frappe and skipped the line.

happiness in a cup.

anyway, amirah, mama and i went to novena after that and we browsed around.

whilst doing so, we saw this guy rehearsing on this temporary ice-skating rink.
here are some photos of Bill's ice-skating body double.





bill much?

that's why i stayed until teh actual performance.
ice-skating really is ghey.
he fell at one point when he was doing this fliperoo move thing.

i clapped until amirah's ears hurt.

back from 2 and 3/5 days of exile.

i started a joke
which started the whole world crying.
but i didn't see that the joke was on me.

i started to cry
which started the whole world laughing.
if i'd only seen that the joke was on me.

i looked at the skies
running my hands over my eyes
and i fell out of bed
hurting my heads from things that i said.

till i finally died
which started the whole world living.
if i'd only seen that the joke was on me.

Santi!
