|First entry for year 2007! Started year 2007 in a busy mode. Busy but I still think I am able to enjoy. There are projects coming in, just completed a website for Kah Wei's cousin's company. Put in a lot of effort for this site, will update in portfolio section soon.
Back to 2006, managed to get 2.5 weeks of continuous leave towards the end of December 2006. I did a lot of things during this period, went for a swim (long awaited one, haha), painted my own room (light blue colour!) and other parts of the house too, meet up with primary school friends, etc. I still do not have enough spare time to go back to Nanyang Polytechnic to look for my ex-lecturers as I planned to. Also wanted to go for cycling during this period but the everyday rain prevented me from doing so. However, I was lucky enough to be able to go to Sentosa on 1 fine Friday afternoon. Went there with Kah Wei and Chin How. A afternoon out in the sun, finally had the chance to swim in the 'sea' which I had wanted to for quite some time.
1st day of 2006, had dinner with primary school friends - Yew Hong and wife and daughter, Ribin, Khing Tat and Sherene. We had a superb dinner at Canton Wok at Joo Chiat! Definitely will return for more, fantastic food there! After that we went to Hougang K-Box (which my gf joins us too), then to Geylang for supper. Great night out. Following that is Ningzi's birthday on 7th, and dear's birthday on the 9th. Busy busy!
Another major event which started in 2007 is my studies. I've finally made up my mind not to further my studies in NTU despite getting myself a place there. Decided to take the shorter route and get my degree earlier by doing part-time at a private university. I've considered these 2 options for a really, really long period of time before coming to this decision. Those who want to know why I choose not to go to NTU may want to drop me an email and I will tell you the long story. Anyway, I've enrolled in University of Newcastle's Bachelor in Information Technology, offered by PSB Academy. It's a 20 months part-time programme starting on 8th January 2007. I asked dear if she wants to study together and we actually enrolled together in December 2006.
There are further news, for every intake (cohort), PSB Academy will award a $2000 scholarship to 1 applicant with the best results (base on previous academic results). I am the lucky recipient who got it! Yes! $2000 slashed off my next semester's school fees. Anyway, the total fees for this programme is cheaper than going to NTU full-time for 3.5 years! So why not!? heh heh
Weekends are meant to be enjoyed, so I seldom make myself work on weekends. Normally I sleep 3 hours everyday on weekdays and more on weekends. On some Sundays, I can sleep for the whole day! Hopefully that can make up for my loss of sleep on weekdays. Another interesting thing to write, I started to explore clubbing..! hahaha! Last time those who asked me to go clubbing will be turned down straightaway, no questions asked. Reason being I think it's too noisy there, want to drink, I can always go kopitiam to drink. haha but I also do not know why I started going to Zouk, MoMo, St James Power Station to 'chiong'. haha! Anyway I guess I just went there to see what it's like, so far I had not been to the same club for more than once. Anyway, I do not dance, just drink.
I would still prefer to drink at kopitiam should I need to drink. It's the lack of kakis that I am unable to do so. Haha! Nonetheless, I managed to meet up with Michelle at Blk 85, Bedok North for beer 2 nights ago. I brought Ribin along too. 3 of drank 6 bottles, shiok! It's hard to find kakis to drink beer with me.. haha last time still can ask Yulun, now he's out! haha
Just before I end, I think I shall write about my dinner last night. It sucked! Went to 'Crab Shack' at Upper Thomson Road. Maybe some people might have receive an email regarding this eatery some 6 months ago. They offered fresh flower crabs and soft shell crabs. So we decided to go there to try last night, dear's treat! :p Ordered a sampler (mixture of a few dishes they had), a crab baked rice and spaghetti. Nothing much to comment on the sampler, it's normal. As for the spaghetti, yucks. As for the crab baked rice, it's crap indeed. It stinks! There's this 'chao cho' smell. Pui, I ate a few mouthful and stopped - cannot take it. Normally for food which does not taste well, I will still try my best to finish as much as I can so as not to waste food. But for this crab or crap baked rice, no way I can take it! Sucks! I wonder why are there still people commenting in forums and blogs that Crab Shack offers food. I wonder what did these people order when they were there! The best one I had last night is just average...
Ok, I shall end here for now.
