another pasture

if you haven't already figured, i've moved. hopped onto the tumblr bandwagon.

don't you know i would move heaven and earth

and all he could think about was,

"if we last a year, we'll have to celebrate twice in one week."

yes he's alive. good. end of story.

to arrive at nearly 500 words for ps2249, my bed and study table has been strewn with notes. i feel like a tree murderer.

i'm reminded of the "my name is gaia"/"you promised never to use a plastic bottle" vday video. never knew singaporeans were environmentally friendly enough to do a vday stunt on that. the black dress girl only knows how to say "i don't understand what's doing on" in horrible singlish.

awesome vday date last night, content too explicit to be videoed(;D) and i'm lazy to write about it now, so wait for insom online. but mom saw the present and was like, "why do you have steel wool on your table?"

do it anyway.

just a small town girl
living in a lonely world
she took the midnight train going anywhere

just a city boy
born and raised in south detroit
he took the midnight train going anywhere

a singer in a smoky room
a smell of wine and cheap perfume
for a smile they can share the night
it goes on and on and on and on

strangers waiting
up and down the boulevard
their shadows searching in the night
streetlight people
living just to find emotion
hiding somewhere in the night

working hard to get my fill
everybody wants a thrill
paying anything to roll the dice just one more time

some will win, some will lose
some were born to sing the blues
oh, the movie never ends
it goes on and on and on and on

strangers waiting
up and down the boulevard
their shadows searching in the night
streetlight people
living just to find emotion
hiding somewhere in the night

don't stop believing
hold on to that feeling
streetlight people

don't stop.

-cain, jonathan; perry, steve; schon, neal.

this sucks.

have been really busy these weeks, but today i stopped myself for ten seconds to think about what i've achieved.

the next week.

week 2 just flew past.

it was really insoMANIAC this time round, never expected us to reach this stage at all. i still can't get my editorial right.

bq posters screwed but many thanks to ocomm's support. love how they responded really fast and even called me to make sure i was feeling okay.

cath kidston pencilcase with liangs! pretty london prints. the empire state building is not in london.

stayed over yet again and made mummy worried. but luckily i didn't try to be clever and go home in the middle of the night because the latches were still on when i returned at 5.30am. i hereby pronounce that i've been running more this sem than last sem. because i've already chased miq around school (as fb reports) in week two. night runs are actually pretty cool.

sheares chicken rocks. and keeping to the no-fried-food diet is kinda making me crazy. where there's a will (and constant hilarious reminders from fassclubbers), there's a way. personal note: no fries, no chips, no sunny side ups. no tau poks. sausages can. sausages with french toast cannot. but curry is okay. and ignore the fact that tempeh's fried before cooking with chili.

i've completed my german homework. people stare at me in the train as i read politics and governance of singapore. i'm kinda finding soci more interesting. and contemplating actually staying longer in nus so i can do a double maj plus languages.

sunset grill level 30 with pet and boytoy this afternoon. finding the place was like solving an a math question. a bitch, but when it's done it feels awesome. level 30's manageable within 15 minutes of consumption. then everything kicks in (literally) and you'll find yourself indulging in a week's (or more) worth of calcium. and maybe having to repeat a meal because everything comes out. don't laugh at numbnuts. their emotions are kinda true. but finally having your names on the wall of fame rocks. and guys, i really love you. you deserve to wear red underwear outside of your pants.

3 cups of yami yoghurt at tcm later and i've got a filled card wheeeee! fruity pebbles lol. and exorcism. next time i'll try asking for nuttylicious without peanuts. walnuts and cashew nuts ftw.

i hope week3steph will be a lessbitchysteph. and tomorrowepicmeetingsteph will not be emosteph.

oreo cheesecake tutorial!

these are the steps to make 3 portions (i.e. 3 blocks of cheese) of oreo cheesecake. recipe adapted from kraft's recipe picked off the supermarket shelves many years back. served around 25 people on 11 jan 2011.

step 1: pound 12 packets of oreo into very fine bits. this goes to make the base. no you don't have to remove the cream. just crush everything. meanwhile go melt 100g of butter and prepare gelatin solution with 2 teaspoons of gelatin.
12 packets later, that's around how much oreo you get crushed. using a pestle and mortar helps burn calories while making this sinful thing.
step 2: crush 4 packets of oreo into small but not powdered pieces. a rough guide is to get 5 small biscuit pieces from each black biscuit. this goes into the cheese part at the end.
step 3: to make the cheesecake base, combine melted butter and extremely crushed oreo. i was tip-toe-ing while taking this photo.
and stir.
step 4: spread the oreo+butter mixture as evenly as you can in a lined baking tray of the shape you want your cheesecake to be. a square one allows cut slices to be equally sized so that bike quest doesn't fight with insom doesn't fight with mc over who has bigger sizes.
step 5: pop it into the fridge. you can sign your name on the base too, if you want. but i don't like the idea of people eating my signature so you can write your enemy's name there. chill him/her to death then get people to eat him/her up.
step 6: cut 3 boxes of cream cheese into little cubes. this is an optional step if you have a powerful mixer.
step 7: add 250g sugar.
step 8: blend till creamy. takes a while if you skipped the prev step.

step 9: stop the machine. add gelatin solution (below), 1 teaspoon vanilla essence and 3 cans of cream (photos of those onwards accidentally deleted) and continue mixing.
step 10: when it looks creamy and nice, beat in the roughly crushed oreo pieces.

step 11: pour the cheese mixture onto the base. spreading it around is optional because it kinda flows to fill up the space.

step 12: put it back into the fridge and keep the greedy people away before it sets. usually takes around 2 hours.

step 13: cut up the cheesecake into desired sizes and serve chilled. unless you're noming off from one whole cheesecake. unless you like warm cheesecake.

i think "manifest" is a weird word to use in a speech for sec 1s.

larva lava.

tik tok clock that goes anti-clockwise.

all for one that i never got into my head.

where got people go for camp then run away and go study and sleep somewhere else one.

p tried to do magic trick during closing.

week 1 has been filled with cheesecake and javachip ice cream and stickers and shamelessness.

yes i walk got wind. you jealous?

wind when you walk: available for perfection at 150cm.

crazy week 1!

which is coming to an end soon.

but then again, my schedule's kinda crazy till sun, so i'm only halfway there.


i'm still sane, or so i think. have had much laughs with arts club people these days, and i'm really glad i've got stuff like that to keep my mind off...things.

mom doesn't like me ungodly sleep hours. but i'm not at home tonight:D

didn't get fire poi guy's name. regretsteph.

my ohvola dress should have arrived. mr postman!!!

countdown from 5...

i finally went running. just so i can tell myself i did some exercise during the hols.

insom jan issue's still buzzing thru printers, and so far the experience has been cool.

fasstival for bq's making me crazy though.

in three days, i travelled from west to east and back twice. now i understand what the people who stay in the east feel when they go to school.

reese's peanut butter cups were kinda disappointing. i expected the chocolate to be richer.

i hope i can see my mom today. haven't seen her since sun afternoon though we've been staying under the same ceiling.

Saturday, January 01, 2011


we were all so sleepy after yep that we only spent like half an hour at macs before Z sent me home.

but we ended up standing at my void deck talking for two hours. every topic from yec to school to relationships to work.

Z said K saw my blog and told him i sound like a christian. so K, if you're reading this, hi. and i'm not christian.

miq shared with us today that before exams, he and his friends dressed up as hp characters and used "stupidify!" on other students. hahahahah awesome guy.

the article's gonna be super interesting. i hope the rest of fass will be interested in the legend that'll last the entire sem.

we went exploring ard nus this afternoon. u-turned at a mossy and mosquito-infected place. Y wanted to meet us, but we couldn't describe to her directions to the place we were.

nach photoshoot we went for lunch at biz canteen. found authentic german sausages! but cream pasta not that awesome. still like pm's mushroom pasta.

the np alumni brought me ard their school and conveniently updated the ancient graduate P. they've got pretty awesome teachers/lecturers/facis/tutors.

do you know that in the yuan ching area, all the roads are named something-ching? there's hu ching road, ho ching road, ta ching road etc. random observation from my long bus ride.

coffeebean's pure double chocolate ice blended's awesome. wish the whipped cream could be easily mixed in though.

the success.

insomniac has successfully made the team insomniacs. we hold sms and email discussions in the middle of the night.

Saturday, December 11, 2010

my december thus far.

i think i've been the bravest this december. admitted my singlehood, joined insom as an editor and took up publicity for bikequest.

on the culinary side i've been quite successful too, as you will see. my agar agar retained shape! (somehow the gelatin didn't work the last time i made it)
and i made my first oreo cheesecake!

and the corrected yog cert (with the right signatures) came by registered mail yeseterday afternoon. in an e4-sized envelope lined with bubble wrap, containing just two pieces of paper.

might want to change my blogskin. kinda got hooked on doing the bikequest one(:

Saturday, December 04, 2010

i've changed, but not too much.

according to personal dna, i'm still an encouraging director. but the degree of my traits have changed slightly. check out the attention to style(black). must be fass. and i've become less feminine. (yellow) and i'm getting bossier. authoritarianism, purple.

sometime in jc:

just now:

i don't need a parachute

year one sem one officially ended at 1900h last night. after the southeast asian studies paper.

i would say my four papers this sem were manageable, but only if i studied more. (damn, that's something i think after every round of exam.)

busying myself this hols with yec and stan chart and rondom outings/chalet! whoo so exciting!

first mega-event of my holidays: night cycling tomorrow. 30km, from cc to ecp.

then guess what, 1130h on sat, ms tiong's wedding. i hope i make it without jelly legs.

oh yeah, self-reminder to declare major. dec 1 to 7.

i want to drink koi! oolong milk tea half sugar less pearls!:D

facing the problem directly.

we're most likely not gonna work out another time. but why take escape as a solution? we could sit down, talk, understand, and whatever the ending is, we've been through it together.

highlights of year 1 sem 1:D

in chronological order, definitely not in order of funnyness. check out photos three and four.

love these people. why are we so awesome? :D

Sunday, November 14, 2010

done with them.

lectures, i mean. just viewed the flash version of my ps revision lecture, which means it's high time to start studying.

downloaded a few past year papers, i'd be lying if i said i'm prepared for any. omg so screwed.

but at least now i have an outline of stuff to study for, so i won't be flying around like a headless housefly. (direct translation from chinese ftw.)

oh yeah my brother shared about his friend who thought ftw was the opposite of wtf, like "fuck the what". hahahaha 13 year-old boys.

Monday, November 01, 2010


i actually don't mind them much. if i've got the drive to do it.

like how in a 10k run, the endorphine/adrenaline rush kicks in at the 7-8km.

but can it not apply that last minute in essay assignments please? it's nearing tuesday, my page is still blank and it's due on thursday.

awesome playlist

sometimes shuffle's psychic.

white horse
bad romance
i'll be there for you

almost cried in the train.

Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now (wish right now, wish right now)

I could use a dream or a genie or a wish
To go back to a place much simpler than this
Cause after all the partyin' and smashin' and crashin'
And all the glitz and the glam and the fashion
And all the pandemonium and all the madness
There comes a time where you fade to the blackness
And when you're staring at that phone in your lap
And you hoping but them people never call you back
But that's just how the story unfolds
You get another hand soon after you fold
And when your plans unravel
And they sayin' what would you wish for
If you had one chance
So airplane airplane sorry I'm late
I'm on my way so don't close that gate
If I don't make that then I'll switch my flight
And I'll be right back at it by the end of the night

Somebody take me back to the days
Before this was a job, before I got paid
Before it ever mattered what I had in my bank
Yeah back when I was tryin' to get into the subway
And back when I was rappin' for the hell of it
But now a days we rappin' to stay relevant
I'm guessin that if we can make some wishes outta airplanes
Then maybe yo maybe I'll go back to the days
Before the politics that we call the rap game
And back when ain't nobody listened to my mix tape
And back before I tried to cover up my slang
But this is for the Cada, what's up Bobby Ray
So can I get a wish to end the politics
And get back to the music that started this sh-t
So here I stand and then again I say
I'm hopin' we can make some wishes outta airplanes

Say you're sorry, that face of an angel
Comes out just when you need it to
As I paced back and forth all this time
Cause I honestly believed in you

Holding on, the days drag on
Stupid girl, I should have known
I should have known

I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairy tale
I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet
Lead her up the stairwell

This ain't Hollywood, this is a small town
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
Now it's too late for you and your white horse, to come around

Baby I was naive, got lost in your eyes
And never really had a chance
I had so many dreams about you and me
Happy endings, now I know

I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairy tale
I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet
Lead her up the stairwell

This ain't Hollywood, this is a small town
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
Now it's too late for you and your white horse, to come around

And there you are on your knees
Begging for forgiveness, begging for me
Just like I always wanted but I'm so sorry

Cause I'm not your princess, this ain't a fairytale
I'm gonna find someone someday who might actually treat me well
This is a big world, that was a small town
There in my rearview mirror disappearing now

And its too late for you and your white horse
Now its too late for you and your white horse, to catch me now

Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa
Try and catch me now
Oh, it's too late to catch me now

You know that I want you
And you know that I need you
I want a bad,your bad romance

I want your loving
And I want your revenge
You and me could write a bad romance
I want your loving
All your love is revenge
You and me could write a bad romance

I want your love
And I want your revenge
I want your love
I don’t wanna be friends

So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job's a joke, you're broke, your love life's D.O.A.
It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even
your year, but

I'll be there for you
When the rain starts to pour
I'll be there for you
Like I've been there before
I'll be there for you
'Cause you're there for me too

You're still in bed at ten and work began at eight
You've burned your breakfast so far, things are going great
Your mama warned you there'd be days like these
But she didn't tell you when the world has brought you down to your knees, and

No one could ever know me
No one could ever see me
Since you're the only one who knows what it's like to be me
Someone to face the day with
Make it through all the best with
Someone who always laughs at
Even when I'm at my worst, I'm best with you

I'll be there for you
I'll be there for you
I'll be there for you
'Cause you're there for me too

the world's coolest intern...

...will be diyana!


1) like her blogpost application
2) follow her blog (scroll right to the end, the right hand column)

here here!

i recommend one okay! won't go wrong one. this girl practically lives in tweetsville and facebook.

and is very nice.

and bubbly.

and committed.

and cute.

and loving.
and funny.

and pretty.

and famous. (esp after the organism/orgasm saga HAHAHA)

and will be even more famous and $30k richer!

(of which i will deduct 10% informant fee, but don't tell her yet. i don't think her secretary visits this blog.)

never included so many hyperlinks in a blogpost before. only four don't lead to diyana's blogpost application. go figure.

busy busy busy bee

collected my se reflection paper from the benches outside the grad room yesterday evening. an a+ has less impact when it's written in pencil and left there among a pile of other papers for you to dig out yourself.

now i can properly focus on the se project. this is a very different essay, but it kinda makes me feel at peace writing it. maybe buddha's really watching over me.

the topic's buddhism in thailand by the way. not that i've converted.
