random shit

i am so inconsistent on blogging. i dun really remember my blogger password.

anyway i am not working anymore so life is back to boring, but peaceful times.. now that i have seriously spent an extented period of time working. i realise that studying is indeed much better than working!! no doubt you don't get your financial freedom.. but life as a student is more carefree and less complicated..

over the past month - i got to learn about alot of things at the work place and it seems that humans are really complexed creatures.. and trust... how much do u trust your friends and how much do you trust your own judgement?

hmmmm beneath the cheery surface, dark happenings are ongoing.. and the politics makes it very difficult to trust people. HAIZ. sometimes i am not quick enough to catch onto things.. oh well.. i think it's an important lifeskill and i am glad i have a chance to see what happens at work. so i shall concentrate on studying and enter the workforce.. maybe later. HAHAHHA

counting down to exams. in exactly 3 months time - I WILL NO LONGER BE A STUDENT!! final year! final paper on 26th May 2010!! gotta work really hard so that i can a decent hons. jiayou jiayou jiayou!!

72 days to first paper and counting!!

Sometimes i think too much

HA. 6 months since my last entry...
tsk tsk tsk.. i am getting lazier and lazier..

hmmmmm.. just started on my serious revision before the prelims.. and as usual, the winning formula is to strategise the cramming period. let's see... slightly more than 1 month before the end of my prelim papers... presently with 2 modules left totally untouched and the other two modules; just half bucket full. my strategy this year is to... kill 3 birds and let the fourth bird fly away. HAHAHAH. i just realised - i am running short of time. but i have yet to feel the urgency..

anyway - i shall try to commit 8 serious hours of study each day and only 6 hours of sleep each day. the rest of my day - i hope god will bless me with the diligence to imprint more data into grey matter.. am i making sense? i dunno. i should seriously stop making sandwiches and start making sense....

Dear me. whatever happened to my promise to myself. that i'll sign that damn clearence form before the lunar new year? the last time i checked.. i was supposed to sign it before the arrival of 2010. oops.. valentines is already here...


Somehow - thinking too much always makes me wanna smoke.. Maybe soon.. i will be sucking on a cancer stick.

wah~! it's been a super long time since i last came to blog about anything. almost one and half months~!!

let's see what have i been up to since the last entry.

1. finished my last two papers.

damn sian because i screwed up the Financial Intermediation paper. i screwed up because i couldn't recall all the damn facts. the questions were straight forward and i had prepared the relevent notes prior to the examination so you can say the information were at the back of my mind. but somehow i just COULD NOT REMEMBER ANYTHING!! so my script has no names, no important figures and just some vague . sian - it's a can-score paper leh. urgh...

Corporate Finance paper was damn freaky because almost every question has a part related to efficient market theory. and people who studied it should be able to do decently while those who didn't, can just cry their hearts out. lol.

all in all, the general consenses is that all were GL papers except for Macroecons and ME.

2. after exams destress.

exams ended and i felt more lost than relief because i didn't know what i wanted to do now that exams were over. for the past few months, everyone singlemindedly worked towards preparing for exams ad when exams are over, life seems to be missing something... i did manage to catch half a korean drama and a movie. and life became a bit boring after one week. i think it partly has got something to do with me being very broke and everyone else was still having exams.. tsk tsk tsk..

and i needed funds to go travelling overseas. =(

3. getting a job.

actually i emailed alot of companies but there was no response from them but most companies were looking for a perm admin staff while i am only available for 3 months. sigh.. so i decided to move out of my comfort zone and interview for a job as a service crew in the F&B industry. it was one of the jobs that i kinda shunned in the past. and what do you know.. it's been more than a month since i got this job. i have to say this is my most enjoyable job thus far. because in the past - i never had the chance to talk to my collegues and i was almost always the youngest around.

but now i am happyily working.. and i am happy to work 7 days a week. maybe it's because it's fresh for me and time passes by very fast where i work.. the pay is not high but the people there are really fun~! so the decision to work in F&B had been right! and i was spending my leave in bed. just sleeping my day away. tomorrow is another day.. and i like it that my life is packed and with a purpose. hopefully such good things can last as long as possible.

soon soon

YES AH - two papers left.
and 4 days to freefom~! i can't hardly wait!

Quite relieved because most of it is already over~! I think alot of people were really excited over the long questions in the macro paper because among them were some questions from last year's paper. i know i was quite excited - even if it was somewhat muted excitement. lol. The lack of sleep kinda made me emotionally numb. By the end of the paper, my eyes were ready to pop out of my head because I was so freaking tired~! didn't even manage to fall asleep that night~!

apparently, this was the only other paper that was reasonably easy. all other papers this year were KILLERS!! omg - i cannot imagine what CF and FI will be like. maybe calculations will be a bitch. sigh~! maybe i wun be able know what they wanted to ask~! just like PBF. omg - this year's exams are so scary..

anyway just to destress - i rewatched some of those japanese game shows. please note: the last one is quite disturbing. but i watched it anyway because the really funny and super disgusting part was near the back. LOL~!

Japanese marshmallow game

tug of war

Don't hit me in the balls

japanese game show (censored - but can still be quite disturbing):

it is finally here!!

it's been ages since i last blogged. anyway the day of our exams has finally arrived... so now i can start counting down to the end of exams!! woohoo 12 days to freedom whee~!!!

the next biggest headache is marketing and macroecons because they are both on the same day. so i am thinking of missing out on the marketing paper since my hand definitely can't handle another 3 hours of furious writing after macro... i don't wanna waste one mod when you can easily get a pretty high score. sigh. but i did study for a couple of chapters already. *moans*

wah - macroecons die die must pass this time round because syllbus will be changed next term to become 21 chapters worth of things to study.

one paper down and four more to go. i shall not keep my hopes high just because being able to do the question doesn't means you are going to get it correct. but i think it's more managable than last year's paper. or maybe i was just too unprepared last year. hahahah this year's exams seems to be on a good start. anyway i think i will cry if i still don't pass POA. not that i am aiming to pass but as you know - the higher your hopes, then the harder you fall.

actually it seems that there is a shift in the university's approach to exams because they are including more short questions to test your knowledge on a wide range of topics rather than depth. maybe they figured out students don't really study and 'cheat' by studying pet topics. now you can't choose things to study - you just study EVERYTHING.

oh man - you know UOL is damn sneaky because i think alot of people where banking on cashflow statements in the POA exams and it didn't come out as a long question!! aiyo!! NPV and the P/L are quite standard so you should already secure 40% of the score. and unexpectedly, financial ratios were the focus this year!! and the cash budget question looked like it was phrased in greek! or maybe i didn't have enough time to read between the lines.

very long never blog arh - sudden;y there is so much that i wanna say. OH YESTERDAY I HAD THE MOST EXCITING BUSRIDE EVER!! i was on 190 from bukit panjang to town area. so it hits the highway and the bloody driver was half asleep. the bus was like snake on the lane. sometimes, the driver would unconciously exceed the borders of the lane, or miss going the wrong way my miliseconds. i was so freaking scared there would be an accident. so irresponsible!! hmppf.

My dream house

Oh man - i just watched 'Departures' - no wonder the film won an Oscar. nice nice!! combine it with beautiful music and you get a perfect match! I am glad i decided to watch it and i think today was that last day of screening. hmmm. lucky me.

nearer the climax at the end - i was crying so damn hard to suppress my sobs.. the theater was puny so if i burst out crying everyone will know!! and the worst thing that could happen was that i forgot to bring me tissue paper so i had to use my jacket sleeve to wipe away the tears and bits of mucus. lol! disgusting - i know. i might have i cried too much because i am having a headache. oops.


This is a random post but my blog is growing weeds and cobwebs. i suddenly had this urge to look at real estate and San Francisco seems like a nice place to start. lol. wah fantastic view man..
I am quite stupid to think that TWIN PEAKS, having an excellent paranoma view of the golden bridge etc, wouldn't have people living on it. naive me - that place is packed with villa, terraces and bungalos. some of these houses are so nice!! OMG!! but it's not like i will ever get to live in one. Fucking expensive. Do you have any idea how much one costs? the ones that i really, really liked costs about USD2.5-3.5 mil lah. thats like double the amount if you convert to sing dollars. ($_$)

Happy Birthday.


I shall stop moaning because of my reluctancy to accept that i am growing oldie moldie. *think happy thoughts* Now I blow the 23 candles and may all my wishes come true!!

#1. I wanna visit Japan's Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium (沖縄美ら海水族館, Okinawa Churaumi Suizokukan) with Mommy!!

#2. I wanna conquer Japan!! visit their osen! Eat their wonderful food! See beautiful people!! Wear winter wear!

#3. I wanna travel the world and eat glorious food.

#4. I wanna buy my own semi-detach and deco it anyway i want!

#5. Actually - I want to own many houses and deco them anyway I want and still be able to rent them out.

#6. I wish I were an investment whizkid make my money work for me!

#7. I wanna do community work.

#8. I want an enjoyable job that pays like super duper well. Be my own boss maybe?

#9. I want be like my brother - eat loads of good food and still not get fat.

#10. I wanna to start driving again.

#11-23: The usual goood health. good results. Happiness to friends and family. peace and harmony. be a better person.. find the love of my life... yada.. yada...
Okay - I know I have alot of wants that aren't feasible at the moment but I mean alot of them's possible if I had TONNES OF MONEY. The power of money.. wah... It's not possible for money to fall from the sky. So let me win all the top 3 prizes for TOTO, 4D and BIG SWEEP for the entire year!! muahahaha

I bet that's what everyone else wants. bleah.

Anyway I popped this question to my parents..

Seriously. I bet you never really gave it much thought. I was thinking for a few nights and I couldn't come up with an answer. To take or not to take....

Reason 1:- Ransom money. A few million dollars that a family begged and borrowed to their kin and you took it. kidnapped person ends up dead. It's bad for Karma
Reason 2:- Drug trafficker's cash. you steal from us - we kill you.
Reason 3:- Drug trafficker's cash. The police might think you were one of them and arrest you. Then beat you into submission and give you the death penalty. What a way to die..
Reason 4:- You just ain't that lucky. What are the chances that God's being so nice to drop cash at your feet? You will probably have more luck trying to get knocked down by a car.

Reason 1:- Finders, Keepers. Whoever comes after you might take it and enjoy his newfound pot of gold.
Reason 2:- Greed's my middle name. I just can't bear the thought of leaving a pile of cash on the floor.
Reason 3:- Your parents are getting old. They could do with early retirement.
Reason 4:- Just think about the power of money. You can fulfil most of your birthday wishes this year.

So what is my final verdict. My mind tells me it is better not to take. But my heart wouldn't bear for me to part with the money. Maybe when that day comes when such a situation presents itself - I might be so filthy rich that that kinda money will be peanuts to me. So why would I wanna pick up peanuts off the streets? muahahaha

interesting book

ooo. i chanced upon this article on the net and i think that i just might go buy this guy's book. lol. this book's called "Act like a lady, Think like a man" by Steve Harvey.

it's a book about adting advice for women but i think that it's quite an interesting read! this is my favourite part.. =)

Gone Fishin'
Steve says men are like fishermen — but women are actually the ones looking for a good catch. You won't be able to find one, though, until you up your standards. "You've got sports fishermen, and you've got guys out there fishing to eat. You've got guys that are fishing to keep the fish, and you've got guys that are fishing to catch them, unhook them and throw them back," Steve says. "You've got to determine along the way which one of the fish you're going to be."

Without ironclad standards, Steve says you'll always end up back in the dating pool. "You've got to quit lowering your standards," he says. "Set your requirements up front so when a guy hooks you, he has to know this is business."

And don't let the man set the pace of the relationship — Steve says it's always the woman who has total control. "With all that power, why do you suddenly relinquish this power just because you want a guy to accept you? That's stupid," he says. "Say: 'Look, if you want to be with me, this is what you got to do. This is what it takes to get to me.'"

Macau 2009 Day Three

A good journey must start with a good meal. Our 1st breakfast was okay, abit boring. so our journey that day was also abit boring too. Hahaha this looks like a scene from old Chow Yun Fat movies - sitting puny chairs at road side stalls eating local breakfast. But they still serve wonderful Pork Chop Buns.

We crossed the border into Zhuhai (Pearl River) - that's part of China. I am not very brave so I we didn't eat food from the little shophouses. went to look at their wet markets though. and i have never seen so much vegetable and pork in my life.

But these are really the fresh food people. Even i being a nood at marketing can tell it's very fresh. But if you are looking for dried goods like dried scallop etc, it is still better to buy it Macau or HongKong. My dad was conned. HAHAHAHAH.

bird nest egg tarts, pastry, zhu chang fen fried in XO saucecream buns, har kwau, siew mai, porriage - hmmmm my favourite kind of breakfast. *big grin*

Sight seeing - for 30 cents i got to see this OLD, OLD, OLD temple. I love the architecture. I think China's littered with old temples. But it feels great stepping into one.

Plus, you get to see real monks there. not like the ones in singapore who carry iPhones and drive Merchedes.. Whatever happened to those humble Buddhist teachings to be frugal and have no desires?

Then for S$2, I got to see this White Elephant in some random part of Zhuhai after a 90 min bus ride. Developed claustropohia because I couldn't really move much in my cramped seat and my ass nearly glued itself to the chair.

but I got to saw a real life bottle-tree!! So cute!!

The white elephant mentioned above was an amusement park + spa and that was just one small part it. It's even bigger than our National Stadium multiplied by two!!!

oh i nearly forgot to add. If you intend to buy fake branded bags and pouch - Zhuhai is the place to go. just don't get caught on the way into Macau.

Dinner was back at that same resturant because we had no idea whereelse to eat. I know breakfast was not bad but dinner was super oishii leh!! Plus it's so darn cheap!!

Oh~! You have no idea how fast I inhaled the food!! It's almost disgusting!! hahahhaha. but what to do? Food must be eaten when it's hot. I am a masochist - I love to eat food that's pipping hot. And for two people so ALMOST finish so much food. it's quite an achievement. Ha!
