August 15, 2005sick child
woe is me! where has my voice gone to? a sexy army general from antartica (as liz says) has taken over my body, and although i don't have an adam's apple, i pretty much sound like a man right now.
anyway, i survived my first day of school aaaand survived the torment of trying to get my brain working again. i think i had to re-read the same page of my literature book about 5 times. but hey! i never usually did my reading assignments so go me! i just need to try and fit a study hall into my packed schedule somehow....
August 14, 2005pin your wings
i probably won't get to see them but vote for them anyway! :D
i found the awesomest interior design/architecture/graphics book store at bras basah today and it was... awesome! ruth, isaku and i spent ages there, and i'm predicting i'm gonna be spending more "ages" (and maybe money) there.
interesting. relient k might be performing on TRL this tuesday. that's pretty weird cuz TRL seems so ghetto and stuff. well, cool!
August 13, 2005time really flies
oh my gosh! tomorrow's the last day of the summer!
and i just had to fall sick because of the generosity i expressed by sharing my bowl of baked beans with my sick brother. well come to think of it, it's more like "the stupidity i expressed," cuz i should've known. ooooooh well...
i made a trip to POPULAR today and got some school supplies. very essential. i was a little bit bummed that they didn't have black 0.38 uniball signo pens so i had to get 0.28 ones instead. they will do.
so, i'm pretty excited about school! are you? hahaha probably not.
i smell cookies baking in the kitchen so see ya!
August 11, 2005i love shoes
hey! talking to sarah on skype now! :D she's baking a chocolate cake, and i'm eating a late lunch/early dinner i wish i could have a piece of her cake! oh well. i stayed home today to refurnish my room, and it looks really nice now. cosier than before. I AM LOVIN IT. oh ho ho ho ho.
dang it, skype's messing up on me! i can't hear sarah anymore.... ah, i guess we'll just have to stick with msn messenger.
hahahaha i can't believe this, sarah ruined her cake and she was using a betty crocker cake mix! this is sad! oh well, josh thought cookie mixes were meant to be dumped straight into the oven so....heheheh speaking of josh, i hear he's doing well in case any of you were wondering... except his school sounds pretty messed up with all the weed and stuff. *sigh*
anyway... seems like lots of people are back from overseas :D stephen's back with my COPELAND CD!!!! yes!!!! timothy, anna, liz and val are back as well...yay!
wow, need to go to popular soon before school starts.
August 10, 2005smoooooosh
wow, today was an incredibly looong day.
my day started at 7 am; it was a miracle i was able to wake up that early! its been ages. anyway, i had to get to the beach (east coast) by around 8 am for joy's birthday party. ruth and i had to chaperone while the kiddies rode on their bikes. i rollerbladed :D so, that was fun. we saw two old men fish a pufferfish at the jetty and be cruel to it so my mom ended up throwing it back to the big green ocean to save its life! very cute pufferfish. i couldn't take any pictures cuz i left my camera in my bag, and i didn't bring my bag along with me... dang it! oooooh well. 'tis no biggie.
after that, ruth and i headed on out to town to meet timothy and a bunch of other people at dan ryan's for timothy's birthday lunch (HAPPY BIRTHDAY TIMOTHY! tis the big one seven!) i wasn't so hungry cuz of gross mcdonaaaard's breakfast so i shared chicken and shrimps with ruth... and took pictures!
and theeeen, after hanging out for a bit, i had to go meet my momsies and my brother at ikea to help out with choosing stuff- always a lot of fun! furnitures are fun. after walking down a ton of aisles, we found ourselves purchasing about $500+ worth of household items... hahahaha yikes! but yay! we became a "friend" of ikea anyway so free coffee/tea/soft drinks for our family! whoooo!
ummm, i got myself a new quilt cover, pillow cases, two mugs (very cool ones. they are shaped like glass cups except they are in clay form... get it?), round cork coaster thingies to use as a make shift bulletin board cuz i'm sick of using my bulletin board as a bulletin board...and the rest of the stuff for isaku's room makeover. the whole makeover thing's pretty fun but now that isaku has to sleep in my room, my stuffed animal has turned into a weapon used to whack isaku's face whenever he starts snoring. my gosh! he snores so loudly!
anyway, back to the shopping spree. after buying all that, we drove all the way to west coast hoping to find a cheap good european sized queen-sized mattress+devan (not sure about the spelling haha) set, but couldn't, soooo we drove aaaalll the way back to anchorpoint, which is opposite ikea, to get the mattress+devan set. by then, i was starving so i literally jogged up to the restaurant in ikea and got the "today's special" for dinner. yumzors!!!
i'm so tired right now and i wish i didn't have to work tomorrow. but such is life!
August 09, 2005goodbye blue wall. you were very... blue.
hello there, i am meg and i am isaku's personal interior designer. i decided to paint isaku's room wall WHITE! yes yes. this is because i am wanting to experiment the lovely minimalistic look on his room...
hehe! that's my name!
this is ah goon, my very own wall-painter. behind him, is his mother.
when we move furnitures around, we always find dead things. above is a squished house lizard. ewwwwwwwwwww.
i'll just start with an update on my weekend.
friday: i went to see the guys (jon, irvine, and ivan) and their family off at the airport. they were all flying back to syracuse, new york. twas a little sad. no more crappy movie marathons!
saturday: went for worship rehearsal as usual; and then ruth, isaku, and i went to FESTIVAL OF PRAISE! it was the second night of it but the crowd was still MASSIVE. we ended up bumping into people from school (lauren, ino, hannah, sarah, tim, and ansell), so of course, we said hi, then played some uno, then went back to our own line. we got jeanne and her friend to get in line for us early. thanks jeanne!
sunday: we went for festival of praise again. hahaha crowd was still equally massive. 11000++ people! this time, we got julian and nick's friends to get in line for us sooo we got really good seats :D yeah anyway, worship was really really awesooooome. i don't really know how to describe. the preaching was on apostolic faith. twas good. we prayed for the nations too, and for our own nation...
hmm speaking of nations, its singapore's national day today. 40 years! so um yay! go singapore!
monday: ended up missing work cuz i seriously could not wake up. hahahaha shame on me. but later on, ruth and i went out to look for a school bag for me. there were really nice fossil ones but they were crazily expensive so bleaugjkhsd. went upstairs of heeren where all the cheap stuff are and finally found a nice plain brown one for 28 bucks so yay! said goodbye to ruth cuz she had to go and continued shopping with my mom who became my new shopping buddy. ended up buying a pretty expensive nike sweater (shall not state the price here). i couldn't resist. it was reeaally nice! but of course, i will pay my mom back 70% of the price once i get my pay. yes yes i will.
pictures from the airport.
isaku doing his blue steel look.
