大学のテストを勉強します

Image
Behold, it's 5.30am.
I just finished writing my script for my Japanese Oral Test happening later today.
These are the tell-tale signs of the approaching period of sleepless nights & strenious readings.
After this, 2 small tests, 2 big tests, 1 small assignment & 2 big assignments to finish!
(Comparatives used to emphasise the grade weightage the assessment carries.)

End of trimester assessments are like a thief in the night who comes to steal your sleep & your peace of mind.
Lest he robs you blind of everything that you hold dear, be prepared for his coming & you will overpower him & emerge victorious as the clouds of debris settle.

Assessments are approaching!
But I will not let them sneak up on me!
I will be prepared!
No matter how small or how big they are!
頑張りますよ!

Vision 2007

Image
I decided a few years ago that at every 31 Dec, I would ponder upon my previous year & form an evaluation for a new year vision.
In this way, I hope to improve my skills, experience, knowledge & etc every year!

It's half way through the year now & i realise that if i do not plan for my year soon...
I may live to regret it.

So here is my reflection...

The year 2006 was an awesome year!
I just arrived at a new country speaking a familiar yet different language. It was a challenging experience and a time where i grew as a person tremendously.

My highlights were my travels to the South Island of NZ & my West Australia trip to the 3 major cities in Aussie (Brisbane, Sydney & Melbourne).
As well as finding a great church, Arise Church, to grow in & contribute to.
I also met some really outstanding & inspiring people where... Ester Yap is number 1!

My weaknesses in NZ 2006:
- lack of foresight; didn't think about what I wanted to do with my time in NZ
- socia…

Happy Birthday, Kaine!

11 May 2007 is the 20th birthday of Kaine Alexander Bradshaw, our housemate.
10 May 2007 was a wonderful evening in the Westpac St James Theatre, enjoying the beautiful theatre production, which features song, dance and stunning aerial displays, Maui: One Man Against The Gods.
After the show we decided to grab a good bottle of champagne & a cake to surprise Kaine
He was asleep...


After singing him a birthday song, we made him blow out his birthday candle...
Watch as he fails for the second time!
=D
When that was done, Nesa poped the bottle of champagne open and we made a toast to his new year!
We sat around & chat while nibbling on this yummy cake


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KAINE!!!
may you grow in wisdom as well as in helping around in the house!
=D

Jobs of koko'

Image
I returned from Australia with many new experiences, unique souvenirs as well as a significantly reduced bank balance...
If my plans to travel in the next holidays are to materialise...
I need money... LOTS OF MONEY!!!

So I decided to take up one-off jobs to widen my pool of experience, besides my regular work in the evenings at Satay Kampong, and by the way...
they pay much better than regular work!
=D

p/s: I lost my regular work with Unistop & Illot cafe due to a lack of time for the employer.
