disclaimer: blogged aeons ago, as is my style. wanted to just delete this draft but figured it would be a waste. so here it is.
surprise! i am not dead. :)
(although i did catch a fever. my throat is killing me right now.)
so... where should i start?
today... no wait, today isn't january. but i couldn't care less. about 30 mins ago, this nigerian fella asked me whether i was from mainland china. WTF. but it is sorta understandable since the whole time he was talking to me i just kept nodding and smiling at intervals. still. mainland china. go ahead, laugh all you want.
and how about my latest bout of bad luck? let's see...
- top top top of the list is the whole credit hour ordeal.
(you can skip this, it's really boring... just me ranting.)
first they asked us to take around 25 credit hours (are they trying to murder us?) including all the rubbish university subs like entrepreneurship, information skills, islamic civilisation (god i can't wait!) and two english subs. yes, two. 3 credit hours each which makes 6 hours a week of english thank you very much. wth.
then the department finally gets the drift about the uni restricting their students to a max of 21 credit hours (wow, it must be a super obscure rule that no one discovered until they assigned us with all those subs) so then nobody could register their courses online properly. the brilliant people of the department then said 'hey, just drop APK + TITAS!'. which means, the 6 hours of english is way way more important than learning how to be an entrepreneur slash expert on islamic civilisations.
there's only a 26 student lecture for one of them. the one my friends and i decided to take... so then we have to fight to be the quickest to register for that english online. of course, being the procrastinator extraordinaire, i was too late. which also means the rest of my friends are all in that class (1104 presentation) and i had to take another (1103 professional writing). it sucked being left out... but the lecturer was awesome. she was young, pretty and loved lingerie (as told by her... see how cool she is?). anyway, from what i gather at the one lecture i attended, she's the kind of person that doesn't just teach what she's meant to teach but kinda changes your whole insight on life... that sort of thing. the one saving grace of this situation.
but the story doesn't end there, (woah, this could be a whole blog post on its own at the rate i'm going.) turns out 2 out of 3 english subs available for our choice clash in their exam date and time. and 1103 is one of them. so i had to drop it and readd APK to my list. fantastic! the thing is, there are so many public hols on the APK day and the whole sorting out thing took so darn long that i am now having my midsems and i haven't attended a single class. -_-" what's more, zy who's also taking APK says there are only 2 or 3 classes left to attend. SWT.
- i kept losing at mah jong during CNY! super duper suay ok. every time i play, someone keeps bao-ing. once, plh even bao tin wu... which means she got 4 fei at the beginning of the game!!! what are the chances?!!?!?!?!
my angpow money~
- our room became the showroom for open floor day. madness ensued.
- i keep having recurrent pimples at the corners of my mouth so i have to be super careful when i eat. *scowls*
- i got voted to act in a sketch for our department's family day... as a mother. wth. i managed. and i was good...or so they tell me. lmao.
- i was randomly picked to attend this assertiveness workshop thing. out of the 66 people in my class... i got picked! what is this crap?!?! so what if there are 13 others joining me?? 4-7pm tuesday a.k.a. the fullest day ever. we finish lab at around 3 damn it.
moving on to cheerier things in life,
smorgasbord of pictures from january!!!

OPEN FLOOR DAY

and this is what our room looked like after they were done with it.
they had people dress up as the characters and someone played that snow white song on the harmonica. they were all very gung-ho about it. can't say that much about the 3 people who actually lives in the room.

ah, such is the fate of the slit eyes.
the other day, i was talking to this 5 y/o while lying down and he suddenly asked me ' why are your eyes like this?' whereby he squinted his eyes until he could hardly see.
he also said, ' i like to eat my bei si '... so i think his words can be dismissed.
ju and han.
if you'll notice, we were given 3 drinks each; red wine, chinese tea and punch.
it was a little confusing, deciding when to drink which.
