Driving Test and Mid-Autumn Festival
Friday, October 9, 2009
Gah...I nearly got into trouble yesterday. How scatter brain can I get? This is because the assignment that was to be submitted last week was due ystd; but alas poor me did not bring the edited version to school...and nope it isn’t in my email inbox either. So I was really panicking by then, cos though its worth only 10%; every grade count as I’m really working towards a Distinction for this particular module.[Don’t laugh la!] Luckily; as I was contemplating if I should rush home after school to bring my assignment; I spied it somewhere in my notebook[that’s the beauty of not throwing assignments away] and quickly went to the library to edit it.[Phew]
After school; we had our group meeting that stretches until 4pm. Well done guys! And I was practically brain-dead after school.
Mid-Autumn festival was pretty fun. On 2nd of Oct; I had a super late dinner with my friends @ a steamboat restaurant in bugis. On the 3rd of Oct; I followed my parents to a family frien’s house for dinner and get to play with a baby. Babies! They are so cute, but I’m not ready to have one myself yet though a lot of people my age/younger than me already have one or two children. After that; I return home while my parents went for further mid-autumn celebration. Did you know that they were invited to three places?! Anyways I was a little miffed that I did not join them at the 3rd house as 1] the kids there are adorable. What’s not adorable about them was when one of the son ask me how come I’m so short? And how he terrorize my soft toys whenever he come into my room. GrrH. 2] They are having home-made shark fin soup. Yup you hear that right. And my dad have the cheek not to ask me to join them! And they were raving about the soup when they were back home. Really cannot stand them...
And finally...I BOOKED for my driving TEST! It’s on Nov 26[crossing fingers that I’d pass my test so that I’d be able to enjoy myself in MedaN]. Yup; I’m pretty confident of my skills therefore I booked the test. And it doesn’t help that my dad is bugging me to take the test....Find that the parents love to contradict themselves. Haix. Anyway here’s a recap of my last few driving lessons:
Parallel parking was a torture. Not really since the S course and the C course is the worst of all. In my first lesson of parallel parking, the idiotic instructor ask me if I prefer to speak Chinese instead. Like hello! My Chinese is worse than my English. And aren’t you too impatient for me to produce results? Those driving instructors that I work with before know that I cannot absorb instructions in one step cos it need to be break into chunks. And one demonstration is freaking no use. Anyway I’m glad that I managed to clear parallel parking within 2 lessons. I’ve a good time doing my vertical parking though. The instructor was amazed when I managed to do a perfect one in 20min and commented that my computer was working that day. So I joked to him that he better hope that my computer won’t hang on the day of the test. However, one good thing about being me is that I’m confident....Over-confident in fact. So I’d prove everybody wrong and pass the Driving Test within 1 Attempt!


Driving & Musings
Friday, October 2, 2009
Aloha! It's been 2 weeks since the last post. Think I'm on my way to becoming a social blogger.
Anyway, the biggest news currently is...Earthquake! Thank goodness that there is no earthquake in Singapore; though I feel slight tremors in my room. Can't imagine how scary it is for the people actually experiencing the earthquakes and other natural disasters. Besides feeling my chair shaking, the water in the aquarium is also shaking and I felt the aftershock[or is it another earthquake?] the very next day.
Earthquake not withstanding; my life has been pretty mundane lately. Have slightly more time to rest and to catch up with friends because assignments are pretty manageable.
On the 25th of September,I had lunch and dinner outside. Lunch was at Plaza Sing with an old schoolmate. We didn't see each other since our Os and she took the initiative to invite me out for lunch because of our aborted JB trip. Hope we can do more lunches in the future even though we might need to work around our timing! In the evening, I went out with my gang for dinner. I hated squeezing in the train though because it was the night of the F1 race. Upon reaching Hanis cafe at Bugis however, I enjoyed the night save for the vroomin of the F1 race and a major headache that lasted for about 3hrs. Urgh!!
As for my driving; I'm proud to say that I've cleared my crank course& S course. It took me a grand total of 6 lessoNs to clear the lesson. Oh well what can I say? Therefore I'm quite disappointed with my directional change as I did not clear it within 3 lessons. Looking back, though it is definitely easier than the S coruse and C course; I only manage to do it twice perfectly. Hope I don't mess up today's lesson so I can start on my parallel parking by today; if not the latest on my next lesson.=D
Footnote: Going back to my studies! Though I might be able to create excuses for myself for not doing well[who am I trying to kid?] I'm thankful that my mom have instilled in me discipline and methods of coping with time management. I remember that when I was young, my mom used to seat with us as we complete our homework and would only allow us to play/watch tv when we finish our task. Therefore I find it strange when one of my friends ask me if it's hard to complete my homework or to manage my time well due to my condition. However; I have to admit that even though I plan out my daily/weekly schedule sometimes, I would more often than not do whatever I feel like doing instead of sticking to it. Therefore, I would like to leave with this question: Should I use this blog to document, advocate and share with the world my trials& tribulations; triumphs and joy? Or should I open another blog to deal with this current obstacles? Or should I keep it under lock& key or better still, password protected? In any case; I'd wait for the RESULTS to come up before making my decisions.
CiaO!


The long weekend!
Friday, September 18, 2009
Nearly 2 weeks since the last time I blogged. Am I going to be one of those bloggers who update once in a blue moon? Hmm...Anyway please forgive me as I’d be busy[super busy!]
Well firstly I wonder what’s wrong with me as I seem to: forget my homework during Mag Journalism class. Must really be discipline and make sure I finish my work & submit it to class on time... But other than that most of the other class are fun! Anyway my first major assignment is due on Tuesday. Can we say no to the dateline cos its HariRaya on mon? I believe a quarter of the population do not have the heart to complete their assignment due to their celebration over the weekend....
As for my driving I’m currently stuck at stage 3.2. Just thinking of the S & C course make my blood boil.... Ever wonder how is it that in M’sia one can take the driving test within 8 lessons and we have to suffer through some 30-60 lessons and yet have a 50-50 chance of passing the test. Surface to say, the pre-arrange traps by the driving schools is solid enough to make sure a certain percentage of students do not make it through the test. However I will not be cowed by the news. Instead I will work harder at eliminating my weak points and pass the driving test at the 1st attempt! For if I can take the FTT within the 1st attempt, why can’t I pass the driving test with a little bit more effort?
So I’m going to beat the S& C course once and for all so that I’d be able to proceed to the next stage.... But not at the expense of my assignments! Let’s see what we have to complete[or almost complete] before I can go to JB.....
Media Interview[ due 22/9]
Opinion Piece[due 23/9. Damn I need my inspiration]
Public affair questions to research[ Nearly forget about it as didn’t add it to my to-do list, due on 23/9 as well]
Lastly, the proposal for the feature assignment that’s worth a freaking 45% of the Overall MagazinE Journalism grade[ ok, just let me hyperventilate a little here while I try to regroup my bearings].
So here’s to the weekend....let’s burn the midnight oil 2gether I say if I really wanna enjoy my Mon.


1st wk of school
Saturday, September 5, 2009
The 1st week of school is officially over. Though I appreciate my new timetable[no tutorial breaks except for the 1st wk of school], the timing was a little horrendous. This is because its hard to schedule lunch breaks with friends from other classes and outside school...We need to adopt a give and take attitude as our timings normally clash with one another. Other than that, I enjoy the 1st week of school and I believe that it’s gonna be one of my most fantastic trimester ever. The modules I’m taking this tri is as follow:-
Media interviewing with a weird timing from 3.45-5.45. Other than that, this class rocks as we’d be learning all about interviewing and polishing up our communication skills. Plus, the lecturer’s family members[his children especially is oh so cute!]. This is because we manage to sneak a look when his computer remains ‘idle’ for too long.
Public affair& strategies—A mostly project group work module that promise to be a highly intensive and interesting course that apply theories to practical problems. We’d see how it’d goes as there’s quite a number of assignments involve which may or may not affect my holiday plans to Medan. While my mom had already book my air ticket and accommodation so crossing fingers that nothing goes wrong with this plan[if my trimester results don’t kill me 1st...Anyway I always hope for the BEST!!!]
Magazine Journalism- Finally some real writing![ As oppose to essay writings] And lots of assignment. Will do up my assignment schedule soon... modules of this degree program except for its timing—lesson from 11am-1pm. Unless I attend the earlier lesson....
What about my driving? Its progressing quite smoothly though some adjustments might have to be made as I’m now juggling between lessons, driving and other commitments. Finally manage to pass my Final Theory Test at the 1st attempt after attempting the Evaluation test 4times be4 passing it. I also manage to pass stage 2.09 after 3 lessons. And 2day is the 1st time I’ve come across an instructor who nag/talk alot. But he also provide some useful pointers and I manage to break the car smoothly and the engine stall less often.
Speaking of which, hope that there’s a slot at 9.50 on 06/09...If not my next lesson will be on 07/09.


Night time Shenanigan & the JB triP!
Saturday, August 29, 2009
It’s 3 am in the morning....What makes me unable to sleep? Ans. Caffeine. Too me, my body doesn’t seem too care if it’s coffee or if its used as an ingredient in food... It makes my body system go haywire if I take coffee after certain hours. So 2day, I had coffee waffle & Java coffee pretzel[at night]. And this, I suspect is the culprit to my night time alertness.
Had an exciting day 2day. Met my friend at Kranji station at 11am be4 heading to city square. Lunch was a bittersweet affair because though their food was quite ok, I couldn’t stand their gravy. After lunch, we watched Murderer at 2pm before completing our trip with some shopping. And oh we had Kenny Rogers for dinner. Was craving for it during my last trip there but their baked potato was out of stock. So what’s the total damage done 2day?
Bubble gum= RM 15
CD- RM18
Lunch=RM17
Dinner=RM 23
Misc= RM44
Movie=RM12
Total Damage was roughly RM130== $54. Not bad huh, for a girl who seldom shop in Sg.
As for my driving, I’m slowly completing stage 2... Really taking the time and effort to practice and do well because the expectations are higher. Currently, I’ve completed the session on right turn—It’s a tricky manoeuvre. Trust me, left turn is so, so much easier. However, I’d be starting on U-turn later on...Hope I’m able to complete it in one lesson!=D
And oh, school’s starting next week. So will not devote as much time to driving after next week since I’d be busy juggling school work and other commitments... However, it is my utmost desire to complete the driving test before Chinese New year so I can go zipping down the North-South Highway.


Relevation about lifE
Monday, August 24, 2009
In half an hour’s time, it’d be the start of the new week. And September is just around the corner. Can’t believe time fly so fast! Anyway lotsa things happen this week and this weekend really strengthen me becos of the preaching... Can’t believe how relevant it is in my life!
On sat, I was reminded about our Goliath and how it can be defeated. Today, I was encouraged and strengthen during cg when God used Z to speak into my life and I tear becos of it. Though I’m facing one of the darkest moment in my life the cg message is truly relevant and it remind me of God’s goodness in my life even though its true that fear do sometimes run our life.. but with faith we can overcome all obstacles. Therefore I’m determine to change my mindset from 2day onwards and cont’d trusting in the Lord... because we can do all things through Christ who strengthen us. And he will not give us more than we could bear...For in every temptation he had an escape plan for each and everyone of us.=D.
