Really last one before I leave

Wow, listening to this song recently from the Jacky Cheung double CD which cost me only 8.50……. 我真的受伤了 张学友   窗外阴天了音乐低声了    我的心开始想你了   灯光也暗了音乐低声了    口中的棉花糖也融化了    窗外阴天了人是无聊了    我的心开始想你了    电话响起了你要说话了    还以为你心里对我又想念了 怎么你声音变得冷淡了    是你变了是你变了    灯光熄灭了音乐静止了    滴下的眼泪已停不住了    天下起雨了人是不快乐 我的心真的受伤了    The melody……………my goodness. It makes my heart cringe. You can imagine how nice it sounds, though the lyrics tend towards the sorrowful side. Ok la, quite sad, about this girl, ok maybe guy but in my view a girl, whose “companion” is turning cold towards her. So everything around her: the sky, the music, the light and all, naturally turned sorrowful. Such a time is really a bad time. Ok, not too much elaboration on this song. Wanna try singing it out on KTV tho. *************************** I am leaving in like, 15 hours time. I just told minghui that I’m excited till as if my heart’s gonna jump out from my mouth. I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!! *************************** Chanced upon this blog (ok la, not chanced upon but it was one of those Blog of note) everydaysketch. The URL is http://everydaysketch.blogspot.com Yup, I cant be bothered to change it into a name kinda html. Anyway, it always say my code got error. Maybe blogger despises me, bcos I write too lousily. I was polite and asked whether I can post some of his picts on my blog cos I was really quite fascinated by them. I am some artist who likes art but who cant draw. But this guy didn’t reply me. So anyhow, here’s them…. These are all pencil sketches. I wonder how people do that. How do they grasp the shadow? How do they determine? I wanna learn! =P dun tell me u dunno who’s he. He’s white boy lor. How come I feel a bit political. this is sketch in ink acrylic on board His sketch book cover! haha....if only I can do this too. Then I can decorate each and every of my quiet time book. *********************************** Yup, since I will be lost from the cyber world for 2 weeks (only), I thought I might just post more picts for anyone who visit this page’s pleasure. Probably you will be more entertained (in a way. No, the picts are not funny) when you do know these people. Picts from retreat 2004 December Thru this retreat, I realized many of our YAers adore newspapers haha, actually I find this foto quite funny. Ok la, I am easily amused. HOW COME THEY LIKE SO MUCH TO READ NEWSPAPER!??? Anyway, I thought the way jacob (the one I circled in red) reads his newspaper is amusing. Where got people raise their hands till like that de? Melvin (green) is too tired. Nobody realise him sleeping bcos they are all too engrossed in their newspaper reading. The sweetest reading poise (blue) as demonstrated by roger and louis (see next pict). Guoliang (purple) looked abit like some kpo uncle peeping at shao's papers. I find this quite amusing also. Aaron (yellow) is staring into blank space. Haha, I always find it very funny for people, even for myself to sit down and do nothing. I guess he's just too tired. Or maybe he's sleeping too, but with eyes opened. left: louis right: roger wah! is this like ultimate or wat??? All are reading! There's a shao (red) caught offguard on the right. He's always like that de leh!!! more to come below. more more more, reading newspaper! and more! last reading newspaper pict that I can find. And second one of shao being caught offguard. ya, this pict should look quite nice, if not for... The focus is not on roger who is trying the size of tees. Look at guoliang who looks so shocked. What is he so shocked with!??? And shao , ok, I know again, looking so puzzled. Dunno puzzled about what.... Ok, the picts to come, actually I added some dialogue in cos I feel as if they are talking to one another. Eh, dun be offended if you are the one in the pict. Yup, yup, just kidding ok? =) Start by reading chee seng's (right). And go on to shao's left balloon and then the right. this one is conventional. just go from left to right. actually still got lots more picts I can play around with. But no time le. I am supposed to do last round of packing now. Yup...... see ya guys 2 weeks later! God bless you and me! =)
erm...haha.....so much for editing my photos so that I can blog. Too tired to continue to edit le la. well, but had quite a bit of fun on my side laughing at stupid conversations I made up myself. ya hohoho, if I can finish editing them by tmr morning, den I will post it (ah den? if not wat? so redundant). Going to pack my bag now lo.....still haven't prepared worship =))

Exploding toads!

just read this news on the Chinese newspaper about thousands of toads exploding at Germany, "hanbao" (I dunno what isit called in English). The river, lake or whatever in concern is at the "ah er ter na" region. They basically "pumped" themselves up, abit like this: and according to the papers, they expand till nearly 3.5 times their actual size. And in the end exploded, and their organs and I supposed blood too (toad's blood, how does it look? not red right?) spurt and shoot in all directions, reaching as far as 1km away. pretty sci fi, they added. Do u noe that this SURELY is an indication of something going wrong on the earth. Yep, and a pretty accurate indication too. I once read that roses became blue in this certain area bcos of the presence of copper ore. And that began the mining of copper in that area..... So plants and animals....are best indications of things growing abnormal on Mother Earth. What then is going to happen this time round?

Saw the packs of stuffs in church that ppl contributed to Philippines and felt a bit overwhelmed. Good thing Pastor Jerry helped us approach Jacob to drive the church van to send the stuffs to my place. So good that xiao mi, tianmin and minghui came and help. Thank God for the sisters who even stayed behind and prayed for me. It was great that I spent half a day walking around at bugis area purposefully as I bought my videocam. It came (with money of cos) a bag, 10 dv tapes, one filter, one extra batt and one heavy duty (as claimed) tripod. A good deal I hope. Actually I kept praying to God that I will not get cheated. Today was a great day also bcos mama, gou ge, gou mei and I spent some time packing up the toys. It's like mama is interested in what I am doing and in a sense, I feel, gives me her support. Great great great. I'm leaving in 2 more days. Great. I am feeling quite excited actually. Oh great day also bcos I have a very sweet Adrian who sent me a sweet msg (haha.....nothing fishy la. not VERY sweet la. but quite) to ask me to not be too blur when I go for the trip. ya, I always forget things, I have no idea why. Thanks Adrian! You are very sweet~ =) ok, ya, but xiao hei still the sweetest among the guys. But recently he's too busy to be sweet. Alright, alright..what's with this sweet thing. Yeah great day. I enjoyed eating zhai mi fen which mama bought for me (for breakfast) at the open space at bras basah. Thinking of mama as I eat. The love that comes with the mi fen. Great day also bcos I walked around feeling I am very li hai haha.......ok la.....sometimes you will just feel this way. GUUUUUUUUUUUD! Great days should end with God! =) And bad days too.

Rude Blogger

I have been wanting to write this for long. I felt pretty put off after reading one of the entries of this blogger. Well, she is quite a famous one and many many people visit her site daily. I am one of those too. But I think with time, she began to be too full of herself. And I think she has totally no idea of how to handle human relations. I seriously feel free speech is crap. If we can speak anything and everything we like at the expense of insulting or even degrading another, then why the need for censorship laws? If we can just vomit out what that is in our mind anyhow, then why is there ever this word "self-control". Especially when she has so many people visiting her site everyday. Extreme stupidity, childish and ignorant. I start to not understand why do many people take her stand as well. In her comments link are many people who will say kudos to her suggestive and rude entry. Are these people simply trying to follow what she says to be seen as "in the smart (alec)" side (as she is a popular blogger) or is it the fact that our society (world) has become a world that takes on views like these? I dunno..... I dunno la....religion, politics and sex are taboo topics which ought to be dealt with carefully. I dun understand what is she trying to achieve by saying things which she do not understand. Anyhow, from experience, it is normally such people who are super against Christianity, who become Christians themselves in the end. So, yup, I'll pray for you, miss XX. "We all make many mistakes, but those who control their tongues can also control themselves in every other way. We can make a large horse turn around and go wherever we want by means of a small bit in its mouth. And a tiny rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot wants it to go, even though the winds are strong. So also, the tongue is a small thing, but what enormous damage it can do. A tiny spark can set a great forest on fire. And the tongue is a flame of fire. It is full of wickedness that can ruin your whole life. It can turn the entire course of your life into a blazing flame of destruction, for it is set on fire by hell itself. People can tame all kinds of animals and birds and reptiles and fish, but no one can tame the tongue. It is an uncontrollable evil, full of deadly poison. Sometimes it praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it breaks out into curses against those who have been made in the image of God. And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth. Surely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right! Does a spring of water bubble out with both fresh water and bitter water? Can you pick olives from a fig tree or figs from a grapevine? No, and you can't draw fresh water from a salty pool." James 3:2-12

Finally updated~

Haven’t been updating for awhile as I have been very busy with many things esp the mission trip preparation. I have to also do 400 pages of Chinese worksheets for my work (though I am paid) which is driving me a lil bonkas. And school, yes graduation project. I am supposed to shoot a short 10min documentary. I have no time to think about it. But I should think about it soon. Have to spend near three thousand to buy a mini dv cam even. Haiz…. The model I am looking at is Sony DCR HC1000 and it basically looks like that. Went over to Harvey Norman yesterday with PF (after our Chinese teacher training at Republic Plaza) yesterday to see. The dv cam feels quite good on the hand and I can just buy a 28 bucks tripod instead of 300+ Sony professional tripod Albert was talking about. Well, I will still need around 3000 though. Going to borrow from papa first and pay back in installments. Money money…..such a pain. I must work hard to earn money. Really don’t feel good that I am still a miserable student striving to earn money and juggle school work at the same time; yet my income is so little, at the age of 23. ************************ Never Judge A Book By It's Cover Story 1: A young man was getting ready to graduate from college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted. As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his graduation, his father called him into his private study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box. Curious, but somewhat disappointed, the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible, with the young man's name embossed in gold. Angrily, he raised his voice to his father and said "With all your money you give me a Bible?" and stormed out of the house, leaving the Bible. Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business. He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. He had not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He needed to come home immediately and take care of things. When he arrived at his father's house, sudden sadness and regret filled his heart. He began to search through his father's important papers and saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. His father had carefully underlined a verse, Matt 7:11: "And if ye, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Heavenly father which is in heaven, give to those who ask Him?" As he read those words, a car key dropped from the back of the Bible. It had a tag with the dealer's name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words... PAID IN FULL. (((How many times do we miss God's blessings because they are not packaged as we expected? ))) True (Claimed to be) Story 2: A lady in a faded gingham dress and her husband, dressed in a homespun, threadbare suit, stepped of the train in Boston, and walked timidly without an appointment into the Harvard University President's outer office. The Secretary could tell in a moment that such backwoods; country hicks had no business at Harvard and probably didn't even deserve to be in Cambridge. She frowned as the man said softly "we want to see the President." "He'll be busy all day," the Secretary snapped. "We'll wait," the lady replied. For hours, the Secretary ignored them, hoping that the couple would finally become discouraged and go away. They didn't; and the Secretary grew frustrated and finally decided to disturb the President, even though it was a chore she always regretted. "Maybe if they just see you for a few minutes, they'll leave," she told him. He sighed in exasperation and nodded. Someone of his importance obviously didn't have the time to spend with them, but he detested gingham dresses and homespun suits cluttering up his outer office. The President, stern-faced with dignity, strutted toward the couple. The lady told him, "We had a son who attended Harvard for one year. He loved Harvard. He was happy here. But about a year ago, he was accidentally killed. And my husband and I would like to erect a memorial to him, somewhere on campus." The President wasn't touched, he was shocked, "Madam," he said gruffly. "We can't put up a statue for every person who attended Harvard and died. If we did, this place would look like a cemetery". "Oh, no," the lady explained quickly. "We don't want to erect a statue. We thought we would like to give a building to Harvard." The president rolled his eyes. He glanced at the gingham dress and homespun suit, then exclaimed "A building, do you have any earthly idea how much a building costs? We have over seven and a half million dollars in the physical plant at Harvard." For a moment the lady was silent. The president was pleased. He could get rid of them now. And the lady turned to her husband and said quietly, "Is that all it costs to start a University? Why don't we just start our own?" Her husband nodded. The President's face wilted in confusion and bewilderment. And Mr. and Mrs. Leland Stanford walked away; traveling to Palo Alto, California, where they established the university that bears their name, a memorial to a son that Harvard no longer cared about.” You can easily judge the character of others by how they treat those who can do nothing for them or to them." -- Malcolm Forbes Alright, alright, what I have to write has NOTHING to do with the stories above. Just that when I typed “Never judge a book by its cover” at yahoo just now, it returned these results. Ya la, actually wanna write about my colleague PF. Spent quite some time talking to her yesterday and she came across as a surprise, wasn’t quite who I imagined her to be. I thought she is that kinda happily in love lady who leads quite a normal life (like mine, ok la, normal in that sense). But she proved to be somebody very into “the wild side”, she cohabits with her boyfriend because she said she cannot bear to “leave” her boyfriend. So she just moved in with him. She has no past times or hobbies or anything like that. The thing she always does is to play mahjong with her boyfriend and his family members. She seldom goes out and Bras Basah building sounded foreign to her. When she is free, she will just stay at home and watch tv or sleep. Hmmm….. She is not as “gentle” as she looked. She in fact is a feisty lady and told me that she slapped (kept slapping that is) and humtum her boyfriend real hard when his ex-gf called him. Hmmm… And quite contrary to her build, she is quite a lady who is very sticky and dependent on her boyfriend. Upon seeing him, she will go manja him and tell him, she had a tough time working and all that stuffs, and wants some coaxing from her boyfriend. She said she will hold a wedding dinner soon with her boyfriend and not invite any relatives because the both of them are in bad terms with their relatives. Not quite in my realm. Imagine most of my friends are still studying, and most unattached. Let alone wedding, we seem to still be “kids in our own world”. Not that getting attached is not a pressure, just that the right one hasn’t pass us by. Oh, anyway, I am still quite fascinated and shocked by PF’s “real identity”. Guess when you first know someone, you will imagine that person to be like this and this person. Most often than not, the person does not turn out to match your imagination. *********************** I watched many crappy shows these days as suddenly many pirated vcds appeared in my home. I do not support privacy by not buying them, but I will watch them if they are in my house out from nowhere. After watching so many crappy shows, I start to realize how bored I really am (in that sense). In the end I can’t even bear to continue to watch Jackie Chan’s most crappy “xing jing cha gu shi”. Well, yet there appear to be a rose among these so many thorns. What’s that, Madam? It’s a raintree! Yes and this rose (surprisingly) is our very own local production, I do I do! Maybe because I am Singaporean, which is why I feel closer when I finally watch a local show. But there is also this factor that the show is really fairly well produced. I guess it caters to the Singaporean taste. Though the constant shot of the very ugly office building during transition of scenes puts me off and makes a movie like a sitcom. Well, still it’s a good show to watch. Please go watch it if you are feeling bored. *********************************** tata! Pavement project wave 1 mission team! I am in pink =) From left: Henry (our team leader), Teik Jin (Malaysian who cant speak Mandarin but Cantonese), Joanne (funky Mass comm grad from NP), Lydia (assistant team leader), ME!, Jasmine (contagious laughter), Joanna (Miss Hua Mulan), Baby Michelle, Wei Lim (michlle's husband, good at "catching thieves" [team's private joke]), Humble Stephen! Had a great retreat with these guys last weds-fri and I learnt many precious lessons too. Alright, to end off, the reason (other than being bored) why I wrote such a long entry is because I dun suppose I will be blogging till like two weeks later. Reason being that I will be leaving for mission trip to Philippines on Weds and back only two weeks later and also that I do not have time to blog in the day (as I will be working) and I cant blog at night also (cos I have a bro who wakes up at the sound of keyboard). Talking about keyboard, PF and I went to Challenger to browse computer gadgets yesterday. And I saw this very cute and compact (and pink!) yashica digital camera that costs 400. Well, not my priority, but certainly worth a buy (perhaps) in the future. I am going to buy a new Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse, a canon scanner cum printer and reformat my comp (change it into xp, yes I am still using ME) before the new sem starts which actually is not that soon (like August?) so that I can be all geared up to start school. Anyway this computer is falling apart also. I have to basically hit hard on my space bar in order to see a space and move my mouse to and fro several times before a motion can be seen. That means then, that I have to really scrimp and save, considering the 3000 bucks I have to return my father too. May God help me to manage my finance. And discipline me. Ok, some picts of the place I am going to…. That is payatas, one of the places that we will be going to, to bring in toys, bags, stationeries etc for the children and to put up programs for them. You can actually see from the pict how high the garbage mountain is. They actually collapsed before and killed some people. Kids like them pick things from the trash to recycle, eat etc everyday. The place that they stay in looks something like that. As there is no sewage system, all the waste just flows on the ground. I am going to another 2 homes as well, but no picts to show. And we will also go out to the streets one of the nights to see how the workers minister to street children. Sounds exciting! I hope this trip can really be an enriching experience to even change my point of view about life. These kids live in trauma day by day as many of them have been sexually abused before and live under such conditions. Yet we, in Singapore, have so many things to complain each day. Well, hope we will wake up. =))

I cried my head off just now, like nobody's business, so I am pretty much tired now........wahhhhhh, I havent cry for very long le. Ok, I dun feel like blogging. bye.

Wednesday, April 13, 2005

Do you get disturbed when someone close to you appears to be (and in fact is) overly complacent? I dunno about you, but I do get very disturbed. Especially when that person is one of your loved ones, and he (or she) is complacent at the expense of others, thinking too lowly of another. You probably also didn't really expect that person to be like so, and thus, you kinda lose your respect and the image that the person has in you is ..... tarnished..... at least a lil.... ********************* I wonder at how stressed up I get when I am in the presence of certain people, especially those who like to deliberately create trouble for me. This happened yesterday and I had a headache practically from morning till night! My longest record of headache! Wah.....was working too so no time to buy panadol. So whenever that person comes into my presence, I just on my speakers and stick the headphones to my ears......wooooo, music that perks me up...... To the person who's giving me trouble: Haiz......stop your nonsense can? ********************* Ya, I finished work for papa le....so have a lil bit more of free time then I come back to post.....gotta hurry lo...... =) one more ready pict that I can just anyhow post xiao mi =))

Madness

I am definitely not someone who needs no sleep. Like today that I slept at close to 1am and wake up at 530, I felt a bit in the dreamy state even till now that it is close 6.15. Have got things to do up for papa and ya, really gotta be motivated to help him for all that he's done for the family. Ya la, though I make it out to sound as if I'm very "filial", there are many times that I do snap and throw my temper as well. Not good. I know la, nobody's interested in my life to check back and find me writing such stuffs. But I cant help it lei...I really am very tired and no time. Even if I have time, the first thing I wanna do is not really to blog. Got time then rest and do other thgs le.... Anyway, I will be off to a three days retreat at Changi Aloha (never been there before..wonder how it's like) with my mission trip team members. Hope it will be good time though I reckon I probably wun get TOO much sleep too, unlike those that we have in Malaysia (church retreat) where time is really easy (other than seminars etc) and very relaxing. So kinda really looking forward to the church retreat on 6 June.... =)) I am siao also that I planned things back to back. My mission trip is from the 27th April to the 11th May. And on 12th May, I actually am going for personal retreat with ah min. hmmm...haha...I couldnt be bothered to change the date really... Then after the church retreat on the 9th June, I am going to Korea with my family on the 10th..errrr.....haha ya la.... Ok, I went to my previous photo host to see if got any "already uploaded" photos that I can post. Well, have though they are not sharpened, but ya....I dun care la haha... Anyway this was taken last year when Roger's sis, Sandra was holding this acapella concert with this Harvard group Din & Tonics (such a cute pack of guys....yummy....cute and intellectual too...delicious....haha). They sang really well, I regret not buying their cd, but also bcos I was broke that time....sigh....maybe can buy online. Alright, I probably will upload another day, photos of those guys, but as for now, I have some picts of Minghui and I, which were taken after the concert where we and the guys (our frens, not the harvard guys) went to burger king to grab a bite. ya la, these were pretty stupid shots that Roger kept snapping when we asked him to take photos for us.... anyway, Minghui appears "ever ready". These people just make me look even "stupider"...arghhh....haha ugly uglier...... siao gia leh~ ok la, finally something decent but very blur. oh, I was holding this apple coated in chocolate thing which Minghui generously shared with me. haha....actually still got one more louis.......we caught u! side note: I re-read my post and even I myself find it hard to digest what I am writing...haha.... So incoherent! Sorry ah....I have no time to edit le. Bear with the lousy English and the incoherent thoughts. Yeah, and I know the link is not working. I SERIOUSLY DUNNO WHY! =))

Update~

I have updated (as if anyone is interested) that entry of my JC gathering. Added in words and stuffs. So scroll down if u wanna read more (if ever there's anyone, that is)

Is my new background color too sweet?

I got sick of the dark red and decided to change to purple but seems like no tone of purple looks pleasing to the eyes on screen or maybe I did not try hard enough. So in the end I tried to find some tone of pink which supposedly is something more warm. But as I look at it, I find it very sweet... I probably will change it again
I just got to know that my friend's friend got raped and thus injured in JB. Haiz....what has become of the world It seems like so many people are dying. A blogger's friend died at the age of 20 from a bike accident. My friend's girlfriend committed suicide. Another friend's uncle collapsed suddenly when he was jogging one day. And on and on....

Light savings

haha, I am so stupid and I just got to know from my dear shao that there's this Light Savings scheme up in US. Therefore the difference of timing of theirs to ours is 3hrs instead of the last time 4. tiantian The shoes and the lace (www.stirring.blogspot.c... says: how isit back there le tiantian The shoes and the lace (www.stirring.blogspot.c... says: wat time ah tiantian The shoes and the lace (www.stirring.blogspot.c... says: ok let me guess tiantian The shoes and the lace (www.stirring.blogspot.c... says: 7 + at nite Shaohong: i'm the barber says: no 8 plus Shaohong: i'm the barber says: its no longer 4 hours, its 3 hours cos of the light-savings policy Shaohong: i'm the barber says: they shift the timings by one hour as the day enjoys more sunlight Shaohong: i'm the barber says: in order to save power every year they will add an hour during spring n summer haha...interesting. I post this entry so as to remind myself to read more online someday. Anyway, I seriously think my old companion, my comp is dying. I am trying to watch a vcd now and the cd drive when I pressed "open" only comes out 3cm and I have to pull it out and then push it back again. Should I change a whole comp altogether or just change parts.. Oh, my room is messy.....and I have piano lessons tonight. So gotta pack it up. haha.....MDIS is so efficient suudenly. I sent in an email 2 mins ago and immediately got a reply. *satisfied customer*

No mood

I wanted to update last night and do some sequencing and story-ing to my picts but stupid blogger was down and I have no other more advanced technology to post an entry otherwise. Anyway, no mood now and I dunno when the mood will come. My freedom to use the comp (and type) after 12 has been cruelly taken away from me because there is someone at home who wakes up at 5am in the morning to work and complains that my typing on the keyboard disturbs him. *arghh* So, whatever...

going church soon, have been wanting to blog. But picts for now and I will add on later! =)) ************************ I decided to post some picts which I have in my comp cos I feel my blog lacks photos...so here they are....I still have a whole lot of different occassions.... This was before Shao went over to Seattle, a kinda sendoff thing cum JC gathering. It was during December, I think. This whole pack of us who joined ODAC (Outdoor Adventure Club) back then in SRJC used to be very close, but ah well, all is still good when we meet up though we do not keep in touch everyday. Took lotsa bo liao photos which kinda symolizes us. Image Hosted by The Image Hosting haha....this ended up to be the nicest group photo (in my point of view). Nicest yet I look hideous. Dunno WHAT EXACTLY IS SO FUNNY THAT I LAUGHED UNTIL LIKE THAT! By the way, character intro..from left to right top row: Weixiang (Xiang xiang), Chen Yu, Weizhi, the dunno-what-is so funny me, ROger bottom row: Yongtang, Evelyn, Shao, Yuyan Missing: Minghui (think either she's in toilet or she's the one who took this photo) Most of the photos we took later contained flaws. I dunno why, man... Image Hosted by The Image Hosting This is the classic of all, I feel. Just why is xiang xiang's face so big like it's smacked right onto the screen? And then Evelyn, what are you trying to do? Hey Roger....wake up. And chen yu, chen yu, like me, u oso feel taking photos is a delightful thing thats why u look super happy? Weizhi finally. erm...just what kinda silly face is that? Image Hosted by The Image Hosting I'm sorry. Roger is too tired. The following are more forgiveable ones. Image Hosted by The Image Hosting What was I distracted by? The newest and most "in" pose for taking photos (demonstrated by SHao): grabbing 2 cups in ur hands. Cool~ Image Hosted by The Image Hosting this picture of chen yu seemingly having her finger inside roger's nostrils just doesnt seem too right, and not too hygienic too Image Hosted by The Image Hosting This photo is so well taken. The angle and lighting, and the ability to capture everyone's most natural expression. The photographer must be a genius. But the photo still looks lacking in some sense, like somebody who is very contributing is missing. Eh? WHere am I? Oh i was taking the photo for them. The following are not exactly very ugly photos anymore....well... Image Hosted by The Image Hosting and Image Hosted by The Image Hosting Alright, I know, one photo is so much sharper than the other. But really I cant be bothered to do anything to let the photos look more consistent. It's a hassle to find the photo on my hard disk drive and then use photoshopto sharpen it and then upload again and then change etc etc. very ma fan la... Oh, what I wanna comment on these 2 photos is, how come i look so different in the two. The top one looks so demure (as I say it) and the bottom one...hmm... Image Hosted by The Image Hosting and Image Hosted by The Image Hosting I think I am quite good at acting demure. Anyway, that's beside the point. The effect of lighting. The bottom one looks so much pro, in my point of view. The dark top one made Weizhi look like some uncle who's sneaking in to take photo with us. Ya, and Yongtang doesnt smile. He say he doesnt know how to smile. ok, these 2 photos were the last photos we took at fish and co, glass house Image Hosted by The Image Hosting Shao and Roger demonstrating a failed attempt of a pout. Image Hosted by The Image Hosting Why does Chen Yu look shocked when she doesnt close her eyes? Oh, anyway, I find this shot of Chen Yu and myself quite nice. Image Hosted by The Image Hosting This was a randomly taken pict. As according to Minghui, it looked quite artistic Image Hosted by The Image Hosting *********************** I am quite sure it was the Christmas period when we went out as I can remember taking picts wth the Baby Jesus' birth set ups and people parading at Orchard, hymn singing etc. Image Hosted by The Image Hosting do you see this guy around at orchard? I am pretty impressed by him actually. The first time I saw him was at the underpass of Shaw house connecting to Borders. He was painted in silver and stood motionless on a stand, similar to the top one. He wrote something about "the value of art" etc. He won a great crowd of audience who were like me, fascinated by this new scene that we were seeing. But how many were willing to support him in his "art career" as he seeks to promote art in this busy world of ours. I can imagine people leaving when he starts to go around to ask for funds contribution. I cannot remember what was my reaction then, I think I left before he asked for money support. Later, I see him around often at different parts of Orchard. An interesting figure indeed. It brings a kind of "life" to orchard. I feel Orchard Road should have more of such people around to make Orchard a more cultured, artsy place. They can set up stalls to sell crafts etc, lining the street. Some can be doing things like that too. The photo on top says "Thank you, love is the answer." True, love is the answer. ******************************** alright! laters...I'm not in a particularly good mood now....trying to "ren"!!!! think go church le will be better......
