American idol 8

watched American Idol last night.
I think this season is probably the only season that i am actually watching from the very beginning (except maybe season 3… i dun quite remember…) mostly due to the Very very good season 7. which saw a great winner, David Cook.
i am quite surprised actually that the top 36 being supposedly very good to be where they are now, were actually not that fantastic. maybe it is like this every season just that i never watch from the beginning?
I still like Danny Gokey and his "Woooooah~". but i don’t think i have seen a very original contestant like David Cook yet.
oh wait, maybe Norman Gentle (aka alter ego of Nick Mitchell) is very original. but not in the right way.
but entertaining? yes.

helper in-training

had another round of art in transit tour today. but this time i am ‘in-training’ to be a helper on the team. 🙂
yays. it was fun as always and got to meet a new volunteer! 🙂
anyways, took 174 in the morning and the bus passed by NYGH and NJ and i was thinking all about school again.
How i would wake up early for school, take the bus in the ‘sleepy-mode’, meet someone i know on the bus, feel cold due to the freezing air-con. then reach school to be either at an OAC early meeting or in the canteen facing three handworking classmates (who would be hard at work)… 🙂  and today is thursday, which means late day! and we will walk into school seeing all the sports CCAs having their morning trainings.
i reached plaza sing early so got a drink at Macs and sat there to sketch my drink on the receipt:
haha. then met Yoshie for the tour. the people at the control stations today were really friendly so that’s a good thing!

Despite the spinkle of rain/drizzle, we still went to the kampong trail. mostly because i wanted my photos and partly because we needed our excecise.
i uploaded the photos so do take a look.
it really reminds me of how some fantasy, back-in-time story starts…
They were on a trail in the forest, somehow their surroundings did not look familiar anymore…. the dirt road suddenly opened to a well-paved road and they spotted a flight of steps in the distance… "This must have led to a house!" A worn-out pot together with a basket was the next sign of civilisation, or should i say PAST civilisation? " ‘XCUSE ME!" went a foreign voice as what looked like a trishaw whizzed past them. The bustling of the village started getting louder and then in front of them appeared a busy market place. One look at their new surroundings and they realised what happened- they had travelled back in time.

oh and i am still attempting to learn Japanese. Jane said she will lend me anime… 🙂
(suddenly the trips to the supermarket is more interesting… "Hey! i know that hiragana character" oh but my poor head after that!)

Ugly Betty

just finshed watching the entire first season of Ugly Betty yesterday.
(after getting all excited about it on the plane)
I know i am probably slow but this was a really good show so whoever that hasn’t seen the series (if there is anyone like that out there…) go see it!
I was quite surprised that it wasn’t just another one of those shows which is all click-flick like. it actually contains quite a few twists and i was glued to the screen! ahaha.
my favourite character? Marc, personal assistant of the Creative Director of Mode Magazine.
Yes, he is that gay guy but he is actually very interesting to watch! entertaining.
found this funny video on youtube. it is the promo video for sesaon 2 (which i would like to watch…)
and it is to the tune of Mika. He rewrote some of the lyrics for this video and it is quite cute!
Ugly Betty Official Promo – "Hey Betty…

i m still panting from the excitement.

opening my email today was interesting…. my badges will soon be sold at Doinky Doodles (a shop in Bali Lane) and i am considering setting up a stall at Robertson Walk in March. It is another Flea market!

(my badges packed in their new packaging!)

anyway, took a walk int he morning with my parents at bukit timah nature reserve today. has anyone heard of this trail called the ‘Kampong Trail’? anyway, it is very interesting. it is really like any abandoned kampong place with old ‘toilet ruins’ in the middle of nowhere. like our very own Roman Forum! i could almost picture the people living there together in their little kampong world with young kids running around, trishaws on the roads, neighbours sharing home-cook recipes, etc.!

coincidental reunion.

yesterday, went for the MOE scholarship networking session…

i was so surprised to find Zou Zhao at Clementi station (ok…maybe not SO surprised) and we met Mao Yu (at the MRT) and later Yang Ge (while walking to MOE building)!
how interesting. just when i thought that is probably all the surprises i will be getting that night…
we walked to our table and saw… Mr. Lim! He was the serving teacher scholar at our table!
that was some networking session… more like a reunion kinda thing. fun. fun. fun. 🙂

we met Shu Wen and Mich (from NYGH AEP) at the session too, only they were not sitting at our table.

Another funny thing… there was this girl from SA, Jia En, at our table, when i heard her name i just started thinking of Jia En from guides.
and guess who joined our table after networking session 1? En Qi from my sec 4 class. and yes, she is the sister of Jia En from guides!

i think i had more fun meeting up with old friends and exchanging our ‘life stories’ from the past two years than the actual programme itself!
