end of it all-

i am so glad it is all over. one year’s worth of work, over today.
NJ072, we did our very best for PW OP already so be happy (and… i think our group score should be quite satisfactory.)
I did not exactly enjoy the sessions of rehearsals we had leading up to OP but i think it is during this time that we really got to know each other better and critic each other (and not all the time negatively too! :)) I am happy to say that our group has gotten closer to each other through this (tedious and long) process, and i am sure you will all agree with me. 🙂 Every time i think about the Raintree now, i am reminded of our group and that OP!
haha. it has been fun (especially since we have such an excellent groundbreaker, Walt Disney!).
The relief after everything is indescribable.
 
we had lunch after our audience duties (btw… the second group which we sat in for was amazingly good, i am so glad we were done before them!) to kinda celebrate the end. wanted to eat at curry wok but it was closed on tues when we went there. and so i suggested cosy corner. we went there and guess what? it was closed too! so we gave up and started walking to serene to eat macdonalds. who knew on the way there… hui huan suddenly stopped and that’s when we realised that she left her laptop in school!!! well, now i know why everywhere we went to was closed! we were meant to realise….
so we went back to get it and headed for KAP to eat instead. finally… food. haha. i think we were so relaxed after everything and the case of the left-behind-laptop just made us laugh and forget about PW. :))
a nice lunch to end Project Work.

end to a school year

A good academic school year hinges on a good start and a good end. A good start, this year definitely had.
 
Yesterday was the last day of school. Spent the day thinking,.. this is my last maths lesson, this is my last bio tutorial, etc. it has been quite a fast year if I look back, yet… activities like orientation, aep London/Paris trip seem eons ago. Enjoyed my last lessons and had the usual principal’s talk at the end of the day. Ailin, Daphne, Shen Chen and I went to the hall one hour early. It was empty, big, and air-conditioned. I did not know that the hall could be such a nice place for resting and just being there. I also got my progess report, all I can say is that the good is very good while the bad… can be improved. I m contented nevertheless.
 
Aep lesson was spent vanishing our UOB paintings. And getting back our SOVA scripts. I went to get back my InR and met Judy on the way so I decided to sit in for their OP rehearsal. I can see everyone is working so hard to make OP work! So ‘Good Luck Everyone!’ yes… for the coming A’level Chinese too. then, we headed for dinner and sound art show “Tom Waits For Nobody”. Dinner was good and the show?
 
Well…it was a very different form of art media. I was intrigued. The sounds made were so different, resembling folk music. The good use of resonance also made the sounds work their impact on the audience. I felt that the intertwining different sounds were able to paint the contrasting scenes of serenity and chaos so well! The use of ordinary instruments was also different and unique. I especially loved the effect of the gong-like sound and the bow hitting on the guitar to give a hollow or solid footsteps effect. Interesting. The chaos was a bit too much for my heart to take though… the whole room felt like it was trembling with sound and my heart too. Haha. It was probably the effect the experimental musicians, Zai Kuning, Leslie Low and Yuen Chee Wai were trying to create anyway. I felt that the voicing part could have been better done but then again, the rough quality of the voicing could have been the desired effect. All in all, it was definitely an eye-opener. No wait. Make that an ear-opener.
 
I spent the whole day recalling about the fun and joy we had during the year. And it has indeed been a good school year…. With a great end.

someone should honour the creator/inventor of Lego as their groundbreaker.
just sitting at the oasis today waiting for our turns to check our final year results, we ended up playing with the legos from zhiying.
it is so amazing to find out that almost everyone around the table (sheryl, teck ian, pris, jade, ling chung….) had pleasant memories of playing with lego blocks and forming all sorts of weird things!
Lego made us all pretty much artistic in our own ways and there are so many sets which we can mix and match…
ok, i m going way off,
back to my class…we went on to chat about all the childhood memories of lego building (the strange lego figure with a square body and a head which could turn round?! building of buses, houses, towers) We ended up toying with the funny and unusual lego pieces zhiying brought, with teck ian ultimately forming a strange (but still extremely cute) animal… which looked like… Hey, isn’t that a camel? cute. and i must say… amazing.
plus it is not a gender based kind of toy like hotwheel cars or barbie dolls.
everyone enjoys lego, don’t you?

who knew paper could be so interesting?
i m indeed intrigued to see and learn more.
 
I was at kino today and i found that the display of ‘Caik’ journals by professionals in the art industry was a good marketing strategy. haha, sounds profound. It is the "Caik’s Asian show" or something to that effect. it was a bit like our travel journals being displayed at njc. What i found interesting was how creative people in different industries ( the cake designs, fashion, product, film, textiles, graphic design, etc.) expressed themselves differently. it really reflected their individual industries! 🙂 plus they get exposure, while the company sponsoring their show (caik journals) get advertising for their products. what a win-win situation. 🙂

lost phone.

let this be a warning to all… do not ever lose your phone.

i just lost my phone and of course all the contacts that was in it. re-entering everyone’s number back into my phone has been tiring and i hope no one else have to go through the same tedious process like me.

Dang-squared

I hear : "people so many people"
I smell: gummybears
I see: the beautiful photography
I feel: my hair standing up as many eyes stare at me
 
Dang Dang, the NJC J2s aep coursework exhibition, was surely a taste for all your senses. All the works were amazing and this gives all of us a lot of pressure as we have a lot to live up to next year. their works were all of monumental sizes which served to impress and wow. and despite the not-so-new gallery space, it was definitely transformed last night. as always, the pictures tell a thousand (or thousands) of words. enough said.

so much has happened since sunday…
i spent my sunday afternoon making ondeh-ondeh with my mother, it was yes…idiot proof.
thank goodness too. so my ondeh ondeh turned out ok and actually quite nice. i m still feeling proud of myself. 🙂
we made a 2 batches and split it into 4 parts for the different groups.
but of course after all the testing… i got pretty much very sick of them.
anyway, i made them specially for my gluttons (guides.) potluck on monday which i rushed to after my aep-cinema 4d-ing.
we met at queenstown mrt station and i could recognise suat lay from the back! she hasn’t changed one bit. then claire, anna, adeline, rachel, regina, litang and edna came and we headed for adeline’s house. yibing was waiting for us there and lynn, euods, charis and meijiao came later. i cant quite explain the amount of food we got laid out on the floor but the pictures should speak for themselves. 🙂
we were meant to discuss ms ong’s present… but… due to us being us, we spent the entire night watching television programmes, from the 7pm hongkong drama (arguing which brother should with miki, how stubborn the father is…) to the the dumb variety programme (scrutinising the so-called ‘good looking people’) and of course not forgetting the last episode of po jian er chu (metamorphosis. we discussed over who should live, who should be forgiven, chen hanwei’s intense acting and twitching eyebag, terrence cao’s constipated look which appears in ALL of his shows…) it was hilarious. i had a ball of a time. thank you.
then, we discussed the present in between commercials and well… came up with really funky ideas of presents. which ended up with a strange call from a DJ and a lot of laughs. well, that’s all i can say for now. 😛
