Thanks to Iwabuchi and his whole lot of NOSTALGIA, I find myself dwelling deep within as well...

Well I haven't been "alone" in awhile
(locking self up in hall room watching dramas dont count okay)
So today was my last chance to settle all school admin stuff - pay hostel fees, print and submit forms and help people pay their fines...

Took the shuttle bus (alone, like alone in the bus) from hall to central library, and thats where all the nostalgia began...
Walking into the empty central forum. No fancy details in the middle of it whatsoever. Feel random people loitering at the sides. My mind flashed back to the day where I took 96 for the first time, alighted at central forum hoping not to get lost, walking in to find the people that I was supposed to report to for the first ever camp of my university life. Radio pulze camp I still fondly remember, introduced by Claire the NTU student-to-be.

All the running around school, what treasure hunt campus tour was like SCARY.
Its like being lost in concrete jungle. Its amusing how universities have so many paths and passageway and staircases and shortcuts, here leading to there there and there. Ah the excitement of actually finding a place within the shortest amount of time taken without being lost and having to detour, or worse still bow your heads in bloody embarrassment as you approach a "condescending" looking senior for directions. LOL those just had to be the freshie days. Hell yea we're undergrads, a term which was amazingly far-fetched in your entire education life which suddenly drops on you like an atomic bomb.

So yeah, I was walking along "popular" places such as central forum/library, as1, deck, as7... Well as I was walking this whole nostalgia just kept sending chillds down my spine. Erm, rather heartwarming chills though, forgive my horrible irony.
its been 2 and a half years. NO SHIT!
The lift at central forum was like God-like during camps. It really is the stuffiest lift on earth -.-
The as1 walkway is actually very narrow and squeezy but when you're a freshie, it feels like its damn far
An empty deck reminds me of the fond orientation week times where we will weave in and out of the tables to get to LT8 which (at that time) was like mother far and out of the way. Eventually we found our comfortable spot at the middle deck and the lower deck became like some foreign land to us which until this day, I still don't like to eat there. I'd rather my favourite 6 seater tables beside burger king staircase :D
Finally I had to make a trip to the dean's office at as7.
A not so fond memory of as7 - my admission to FASS interview (which I disgustingly failed, lets not even talk about it)
So i got the letter from NUS FASS which asked me to go to Shaw Foundation building for an interview.
Noob me thought to myself "Wah Shaw! Cool, in town"
HAHA funny -.- turned out to be as7..

Walking back to hall, a strong gush of wind came which made many small orange leaves fall. And that just made me smile :)

Aight aight that pretty much sums up my day till now.
With rehearsals, trainings and having to pack coming up, I suppose that nostalgia bug will slowly fade away, for now hahaha
Its always nice to look back and smile...Good times baby, good times

This has to come sooner or later. LOL

Right now I'm madly in love with her!!!

(click image to get to her drama wiki profile page!)

Ito Misaki.
WAHLAU CHIO (i just had to blog about her)

I don't know man she's just so nice to look at hahahaha
and it all started with this:

Densha Otoko. This drama was introduced by my Japanese Mass Media lecturer.
I can't even remember why this was used as an example but yeah lol
apparently it was like a mega huge hit in Japan at that time
and so prof showed us the first episode in lecture...
well idle me decided to watch on and bloody hell got hooked :P

and i guess it became sort of a habit to wiki drama almost every show/actor these days...
so I checked out her other shows...

This show was about some irritating kid that kept asking questions LOL
something different from sappy love stories...

Ito Misaki + Kamenashi Kazuya = Perfect couple combo wooh!!!
And well, it gave a meaningful insight to the advertising industry (well in Japan at least)

At this point of time I took a break from Japanese dramas and finish Glee (LOL)
but I came back quickly hurhur

Started out boring but eventually sucked me into the story
Its about Rakugo (aka traditional Japanese story telling), enriching eh enriching..

and theres alot of talk and scenes about boobs.
I would totally recommend this!!!

I liked this show, though its kinda old
okay, it is actually really old 2002 wahlau thats like 8 years ago?

Right. Its 4.30am and I'm doing this stupid "reviews" about those dramas
aye what to do, I got so used to watching Ito Misaki on screen
Now that I've more or less completed all her main lead dramas, its time to look for a new eyecandy boohoo D:

Goodness, I really did spend a semester watching her :D

okay shit, I know how lesbian all this sounds :S

update update!

Here's what I caught today :D

(ps: awesome me went through a little bit of dreamweaver so click image to go to wild rice's webpage hehe)

Right. The show was awesome; I guess cast is really important. Gurmit was so funny and his improv is win. I realise I've been watching/going to watch a lot of Neo Swee Lin and Lim Kay Siu. Back to the show, it was really funny and entertaining, well my kinda humour if I had to put it. No deep dark humour, pure slapstick upfront and bloody obvious double entendres. Yes yes, watching it just made me feel doing theatre is all worth it. Watching their curtain call just brought back memories. Now now, I won't go wishy washy with the memories thingy. Haha, I've stored it at a safe place somewhere in my heart. You need to take a Harry Potter-like lift (that goes up down left right) in order to find it :D hurhur

Righto. On the topic of theatre, I've made up my mind.
I'm not gonna do one more year. I shall face reality, graduate at the end of next semester and get a freaking job. I'll start from scratch, I'll find a theatre company that is willing to hire me. I'll do saikang and complain as minimum as possible. I'll put my heart and soul into it and really figure if thats I wanna do for the rest of my life. I'll jump at any chance. And last but never near the least, I'll earn my own money, and buy my own car and make myself proud :D

Aspirations aspirations, God please give me the strength to stick to my words :S


So here's my new ink!

It says "Credo in Deum" which means "I believe in God" in Latin.

A few feedback I've received was:
"Hey looks good what does it mean?"
"I believe in God"


First and foremost, this ink is dedicated to the MAJOR accident I had in US in July earlier in the year. I mean I could have died right, but HE decided it wasn't our time yet. And through the whole process, I was just amazed at how much trust I had in him. So this ink, for the crash, for me and for him :)

I don't think staunch catholic is what you should call me. I mean ya I admit there are times that I totally feel lazy and like a horrible catholic.
But then again, growing up in a family like mine made me realise religion is actually important. I wouldn't say I'm all holy and stuff too, but I could definitely say that I BELIEVE, and I believe those two words are the simplest yet the most important in any religion.

Well on a fun note, my cross was hand-drawn by buddy (though not tattooed by him)
Thinking about it, its kinda sweet considering he's one important man in my life, despite all the stupid disagreements and quarrels we have and how he always like to "threaten" our friendship all. I suppose theres a million things I want to say but never would. If you are ever reading this, I hope all goes well for you in the foreign land you're heading to. I will think of you everytime I see the cross on top of my pulsating wrist <3

Now who said platonic relationship between opposite gender is impossible!

The final one dedicated to Volcanic Disco for now :D

I think you need to like our page before you watch all the videos of the show!

until then, praying really hard season two comes by...
