An hour late for class!

Today was rather annoying, at least the morning was. I waited 30 minutes for a bus! I mean, 30 mins waiting for a bus is highly unacceptable, even during non-peak hours. This was during the morning rush, imagine the amount of people wanting to take the bus - and the bus was a popular service serving Ang Mo Kio, Hougang and Tampines (Svc. No. 72, AMK to Tampines).

There were about 20 people waiting to take the bus, some of them waiting as long as me. I can only imagine their annoyance when they couldn't get on the bus because it was full (I managed to get on).

A few minutes later, I found out why the bus was so damned slow - The exit door of the bus couldn't close! Each stop we waited like what, 5 minutes while the driver tried to close the door? Then eventually restarting the engine of the bus solved the problem (at least for that particular stop).

The result? A 30min journey from my place to Tampines interchange turned into a 90 minute one, including the 30 minutes that I waited for the bus. I was late for class (duh!). Ah well, at least the lecturer wasn't really that annoyed.

There were several of my classmates who came later than me, which I suppose were watching the Champions Leauge Finals early morning. Don't really care about it, though, haha.

Fucking school computers. Was updating my blog when it restarted with no warning. Damn, I'm pissed. Also pissed at a classmate. We did research work today for a small project, and two girls came late and had no choice but to join our group. Now, I'm not exactly 'chummy' with these two girls, particulary Joanne.

She and Bernice came late to class, but didn't put their names down on the board, where 12 other people were late and in all honesty, wrote their names down. So back to the research. When the lecturer singled her out to present, guess what she said?

"Teacher, no fair! Li Rong research so why should I present?"

Well, I'll tell you why. Because 1) You came late, updating your blog, and basically not pulling your weight, and 2) Do you expect people to do your work for you? Wake up, for Pete's sake. No one is going to help you in the 'real world'. It's the survival of the fittest.


Anyway, lots of movies seem interesting. Like Final Destination III, I'm sincerly hoping that it does not have a M-18 rating, which means I can't watch it (darn operators won't let me in before my birthday. Legally I'm still 17. Damnit.) The third installment to the Final Destination series, this movie continues the story of "Death will always win" or something like that. "There is no escape from death".... FDII ended on a somewhat grim note, where a boy got killed in an explosion, and his severed arm landing on the table where they were having a picnic, right in front of his horrified mother. Needless to say she screamed, then... ROLL CREDITS!

Another interesting movie is the 134-minute, 8 Oscar nomination Brokeback Mountain. Based on a 55-page story written in 1997, Brokeback Mountain follows the 'adventures' of two cowbows who fall in love with each other. But as 'same sex relationships' were frowned (and still is ) upon, they comformed to society's 'norms' and married a girl. Cannot remember any more of what the review said, but this sure looks okay. Dubbed a "Gay movie for straights" by reviewers and coloumnists.. *lol* Too bad it's R21.

X3 is also coming soon! I'm gonna go broke if I watch all the movies that are interesting. *watches money flying away*

Back again.

La la la la la la la la la la la.......

Okay, so I haven't exactly been updating my blog of much. Falling into my old habit I am, LOL. I cannot think of anything to write about now, maybe when inspiration strikes I'll write something.

*Inspiration strikes!*

Yesterday (Saturday, 4th Feb'06), I had a blast with my friends at one of our yearly traditions - a Chinese New Year celebration. As with previous years, we started in the morning at Jurong Point McDonalds, for breakfast (although I didn't eat anything). At around 11am, we proceeded to take a bus to Parc Vista condominium, where the event was to be held at. We waited quite a while for the bus, 10-minutes would be an educated guess.

We alighted a stop before the condo itself, and we had to walk about 5 minutes to the main gates of the condo. We then went to the video screening room, where we watched DUNE, a flim adaptation of the book by Frank Herbert. It was okay, I guess. A little longish (3 hours, I believe), and the room was freezing (as usual). For lunch I had a bloody chicken rice, man, I hate it when there's blood in the chicken. Such a turnoff! Continued watching Dune until about 4pm, when the show finished.

We watched a bit of 13th Floor, an interesting show about altenate relaties (it's the best I can describe it..)

After that, I had a wonderful dinner. We tossed the yu-sheng (raw fish salad), but this version was vegetarian, so no fish. Someone's pair of chopsticks ended up in the mix, but no one claimed it, *lol*. I ended having to wash my hands as they got sticky with the plum sauce. Then starting dinner proper, there was sushi, curry puffs, fried rice, fish ball, behoon, spring rolls.... I only ate the roasted chicken, curry puff and 2 pieces of sushi, but was filled.

On to the games. First game was a sort of a 'bingo' game where one had to match the three attributes of the CCG card we were given. I didn't win, but the winner recieved a novel. The second game was the same, but this time, in the end if someone didn't have all the attributes called out, then they won. The winner recieved a book too. The third round was the hardest, which was to match the three attributes, but they had to be from the same affliation/species as the card that I held. Boy, this was hard. The winner also recieved a book.

The last game was a trivia game. We had to draw out little pieces of paper with topics written on it, and the audience had to quiz the person 'in the limelight' on that particular topic. The topics I chose were:

First draw: Kirk. Since I hated that guy, I opted to discard the piece for my second and last try.
Second draw: The Federation. This was an 'oh no' topic for me, as I didn't know much (at least I don't have a knack for remembering stuff.) I scroed a total of 7 points, which placed me in a tie with Sam at third place.

I went up a second time to try my luck, I got the topic as "The Borg". At least there were limited questions to be asked about the borg, but deLancie stumped me with the question : "Which actress played the Borg Queen". As I don't usually take note of who plays what on TV/ movies, I promptly passed. For the record, the answer was "Alica Kirge". I think that's how you spell the name..

deLancie won the top prize of a autographed picture of Admiral Forrester! Wow, how I wish I hd it. LOL. I did go away with a prize, that is, a keychain...

On the way back, I was wondering if I should take the train all thw way east and transfer to a bus, but risk missing the last buss from the interchange, so I decided to drop off at Outram Park interchange and transfer to the North-East line. I hate changing trains, but I hate that station even more. That particular station is pretty big, and the platforms to board the trains are far apart. I walked as fast as I could and missed the train =.=

I got off at Hougang, and decided to see if I could catch the last bus to my home (1 stop away), but as luck would have it, I rode the escalator to the ground floor, and I see the bus pulling away from the berth. There goes my ride! So I had to walk the way home. Eventually reached home at about 11.45pm - 12mn, and on the way, I realized I had forgotten my keys. Thankfully my mum was still awake... else I had to bang on the door to get her to open the door, lol.

In other news, my Motorola phone FREAKING DIE ON ME. I left it to charge overnight, and when I woke up, the phone refused to be switched on. When my spare's battery dies on me, I can say bye-bye to keeping connected with my peers and friends.

I guess that's all for now.. until next time! (whenever next time is..)

Bleh, I'm falling into my old habit of not updating posts again.

Exam is just 2 days away.

Oh no, I haven't gotten down to studying yet? This is just me, I guess. Better study tomorrow (or later, rather), else I fail my exam.

On a different note, I've become more concious of how I look. For those who know me, I'm thinner than a rake, and would like to bulk up and gain some weight, because, frankly, being skinny isn't pleasent at all. GAH. I'll have to read up more on the topic, and perhaps hit the gym, which I've never done before, after my exam.

It's close to 1 am now. Guess I better go to sleep, and imagine myself being heavier. LOL.

Till next time :)

Garden City.

Cosmopolitan city.

But are we really that advanced? I began to question myself, a proud Singaporean and always will be one. In the uber crowded Orchard Road area, it's well, crowded.

Not that crowded until there isn't room to walk, but some people piss me off. Purposely blocking your way, INSISTING that you move, now that's rude.

Well, the service sector also leave much to be desired. Me and my family were shopping earlier today, and my mum saw pillows on sale for $30 for 2. When the cashier rang up the items, it came up as $35. My mum questioned the price, and in a huff, she consulted a collegue, and came back, her face looking thunderous. If the signs says it's $30 for 2, then it should be sold at $30 for 2, right?

There is a clause in most sales, that states:

"XXX Company reserves the right to amend the prices stated in this
brochure/flyer without prior notice."

If so, then why don't they change the GIANT (Pun unintended) sized sign that says "XXX PILLOW 2 FOR $30"? Isn't that tantamount to false advertising? Prices at the register and what it says on the tag should tally, if they want to make people happy. People happy = They come back = More money for the company = improved services = people happy.

Unfortunately, it isn't often that way.

In our day and age, public transport is something we cannot do without. It's an intergral part of our scoiety, yet some buses run by SBS Transit is sub-par. I boarded a bus at the bus interchange once, to be 'hit' with the 'scent' of chemicals, not unlike what a fumigation chemical mix smells like. I had to endure 45 minutes of the smell, and the outside air, polluted with car fumes and whatnot was a glorious relief, especially since I was feeling light-headed.

Anyway, this ends my rants for now. Although I know posting here has no chance of reaching the abovementioned companies, I hope they do improve their services.
