Non-SYC related updates =P

So yes. Wow! I'm actually updating twice in one day. To all my friends who have grown bored with all my SYC stufs, sorry! Haha. Come on. It's the 3rd year already =D Should have gotten used to me doing SYC related gushing at this time of the year. haha. Ok, on to the non-SYC stuffs.

I am currently cringing a lot less when I hear my FOC main comm-ers making plans coz we have money in our treasury! Woots!! Not a lot but should be enough to tide us over for the next few canvassing events which needs start-up costs and whatever other plans we have. So, yay! Jiayou main comm-ers. We can earn more =P

Outing with the IJC gang on 22nd at the Mind Cafe.
This is our bored funny poses picture. Haha. Man, I haven't seen you guys (Except for Wani and Faiz) since our last outing? In July if I'm not wrong. Right before my FOC. That's a loooooong time! As usual, it's fun with you guys! haha. Hanging out at Starbucks after dinner and Fie and Fai left was fun too. haha. Playing lame-ass camp games and things like fuzzie wuzzie and around the world in eighty days and black magic. haha. Funs =D =D

The family went bowling on the 23rd. By the family I'm referring to the family of the aunt I'm staying with, my mummy and my sis and the other aunt and her family. Ok. For those friends of mine who remembered me as someone who was able to pretty easily hit 70s and 80s and even 100+ once in bowling, please banish that image RIGHT NOW! As of now, at 19 years, 2 months and 30 days of age, I currently really suck at bowling. Like bad. I was barely able to hit 20+ can? Ridiculous man. But oh well, it was followed by a scrumptious dinner at West Coast thanks to my sister. So it was fine. haha. I promise sister once I'm in the working world (currently not really looking forward to that) I'll pay for half of everything ok? And going overseas sounds good too. haha.

Finally, the outing that was supposed to be for me, nurul, bibi and firah. Final attendance: me and nurul. Thanks ah you two. Haha. No lah. I'm just kidding. It's not like you purposely don't want to come.

This is us on the train back from harbourfront with my new W910i!!! So, since it was just the 2 of us, we decided not to go bowling but meet later and headed off to Vivo for dinner (and unplanned shopping). Nurul!! Thanks ah. Was it revenge for bringing you into Pull and Bear where you bought your two green things?? hahaha. I didn't even want to go to Zara in the first place but since you wanted to I thought ok. Cheh, totally didn't expect to end up shopping there. Yes, people. I went shopping. At Zara no less. Bought a brown jacket (which i LOVE) and a turquoise blue long sleeve top (which I also love). There was a sale going on ok? I wouldn't have bought it if not for the sale. hahaha. But seriously, thanks for dinner. I should have like snatched the receipt out of you and insisted on paying.
People!! Fig and Olive food is good!! Slighly higher priced then say Secret Recipe but good food =D sighs. Truly good food. Go there if you have the money =P
Sooo, looking forward to my next gathering that is tomorrow, New Year's Eve with the SYC05 gang. Any SYC05-er who sees this entry and doesn't know about tomorrow but can join us for dinner sms me for details ok?

Picture entry!!

Haha. Yay! Thought it's time for another picture entry =D But there's still a couple more pics that I'm still waiting for from people though (IJ gang outing, cable-car, 4D-magix, my Indo people). But there's still a bunch of photos just waiting to be posted. I'll do SYC07 first!

I shall start like marya did with a picture of the 05's! Woots!

Yay to my dear SYC 05 Singaporean participants! Like i said in the previous entry, we were the stubborn bunch who insisted on squeezing like 15 people (count them!!) on one ten person, at most twelve person table! hahaha. But then, where's the fun if we are all divided and eating at different tables <3<3>

So hanloong, this is for you!! A picture with you in it! Taken Wednesday night when he came to stay over =D This was before we went out to supper at Newton! Yay to darren being able to drive. hahaha.

And here's a picture with Khairi in it!! My roomie Steph and our three temporary roomies on the final night. Marya was too busy sleeping in the next room. cheh. haha. Oh and I realised that we didn't take a roomies picture again this year. Anyway, yup. Temporary roomies coz the guys who decided to stay over (khairi, kelvin, zz) all ended up sleeping in our room except for tristan who took over darren as johnathan's roomie. haha. And sorry if I look super duper damn sleepy lah. It was taken after like 1/2 hour of sleep on my part ok? Oh and this particular shot took 8 tries to achieve. Yes, 8. haha.

Senior ACEs on Wednesday, the first (and only) day where we are all on the bus together!! Like finally! haha. Monday I didn't go for OBS and Tuesday marya, steph, anting, gen all had things to do. Thursday darren didn't go to sentosa and there was no bus trips anywhere on friday. So yes, Wednesday was the only day we were together on the bus. Excuse us looking so tired. We slept at like 3++ the night (or is it morning?) before. Oh and this is the first of our camwhore shots of the day? Woots to Darren. He's a camwhore expert. He got a lot of shots right the first time. No need for retakes.

Yay!! A photo with the Korean chaperone, Ko! He was soooo surprised when I said I wanted to take a picture :D

So, still waiting for more SYC pics =D Will post whenever I get them. I shall end this now and do another post on non-SYC stuff. haha. if not it'll be a tad too long. Cya'll in the next entry!

My SYC07 experience

Subtitle: So we are indulgent in our own fun?

OK. Don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to make fun of anybody. The person who said that is actually somebody that I like as a person. But we really had no intention of saying anything like that yet that's what you got out of what we said? But meh... Whatever, SYC is all about fun anyway =D =D
And yes, I had oodles of fun this SYC even though its my 3rd time back, 2nd as an ACE (the fancy name for facilitator basically). Every year, the experience is different such that even the 3rd time back is not boring. Well, the programme gets boring but the experience itself doesn't!!

Let's see, first of all, a shout out to my Indonesians!! Yes people, I'm in-charge of Indo this year. And if you read last yr's entry I might sound like I'm repeating myself, but they really are a great bunch of kids. It was just really fun interacting and talking with them. Special mention to my 3 Singaporean attached: Salih, Nicole, Mark. Try to find a free day so that i can treat you guys to dinner or something. Just a way to say thanks for helping me take care of the Indons. And a mention to Vremita too. You were a great partner ACE to have along =D
Hmmm, do give me a call if you guys decided to come back to Singapore. I'll be more than happy to play tour guide! Love all!!

A great big hi to the chaperones!! Haha. This year's chaperones are way cool =D They all very buddy buddy with each other. Putting them all in one bus really is a great idea and I enjoyed my time in the chaperone bus as well. Brilliant!! hahaha.

Hugs and kisses to the senior ACEs!!! (ok fine, I know we don't really want the whole senior/junior thingy but I need to differentiate you guys right??) Basically anting, darren, gen, marya and steph. Thanks for the late night chats, supper and just for all the entertaining times we spent together. Haha. There is no way the SYC 07 experience would be complete if you guys weren't there to discuss things with. haha. It kinda felt weird after camp to enter my room and not have everybody gather round getting ready for a midnight chat. Oh wells. I miss you guys!! And this goes out to johnathan and victoria too! Hmmm... Johnathan, sorry if our late night chats actually caused you to be sooo tired you overslept. haha.

One final shout-out to everybody else!! The rest of the ACEs, hope you guys enjoyed your stint as an ACE. To all the 05s who came back: Yay!!! I didn't realise exactly how much I miss everybody until we were all gathered round the same table (damn stubborn lah we, table not enough to squeeze us but we insist) talking, laughing, reliving memories! SYC05 so rocks lah. haha.
