AC Milan are European Champions!!

It's just awesome! AC Milan, the team that I have been supporting since my childhood, has won the 2007 European Champions League Cup! To ge there, they beat teams like Celtic, Bayern Munich, Manchester United & finally Liverpool. Congratulations!!


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

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 wi

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

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. ~~~~~ JOB 1: VIC CREW Job Description: Meeting Service Representative The first job i took was with Victoria International, the wing of my university administration that deals directly with International students.
