Haven’t updated for ages… been back in Singapore for 3 weeks, school started, work piled up and life returns to normal… or as normal as it can get anyway :p

P flew back with me and we went out for the number of times I could squeeze in between my nie schedule considering that we didn’t want to go out during the weekends and he quite refused to visit me in nie after the first two times, citing that the bus ride was way too long (And he was wondering why I was complaining about the bus ride when I first entered nie!) We watched 4 movies, 1 play and went to the gym during the weekends. Else we simply stayed at home and watched 天龙八部. Haha… sounds quite decadent, P kept asking me why I wasn’t doing any work?

We watched Wi!d Rice’s Aladdin, quite a wild interpretation of the old tale, Karen Tan was unbelievable as the bad wizard Alabanana (or sth similar). It’s the play’s last day and at that note, she did an hilarious pantomime of fainting from exhaustion :p The movies we caught was pretty mediocre, the Korean Love so Divine being the run-of-the-mill love story, National Treasure having the traits of Da Vinci but not as fascinating, Aviator didn’t quite meet up to expectations, but was still quite a movie. The one I enjoyed most was Phantom of the Opera, the music was amazing, the way it all meshed together to form the story, but P was quite obviously bored halfway into the movie. The ones he enjoyed most was probably the vcds we watched on the last day, 突然发财 and a Chinese mahjong movie starring Andy Lau, both comedies that made him laugh. Poor P, always getting dragged to watch movies with me :p But our weekly exercise regime (gym or badminton) is a good balance, I’m going to keep it up and get the best out from my new running shoes!

That silly git is currently stuck in Detroit as Logan is closed due to the snowstorm. Ha.. gave me quite a shock when he called at 2am with the news, but being groggy with sleep, I simply took down the instructions to email his prof. with the news in the morning before rolling back to bed. This morning, emailing plus the 10 extra mins I took due to a bad stomachache in the toilet cost me the first 10 mins of my presentation despite all the running between the bus stops and the last minute dash to the tutorial room. I was so embarrassed to keep my entire class waiting, and when I was frantically searching for my presentation notes during the 2 mins intro before I have to present, P called! And naturally, with all the rush, I forgot to off my handphone. Imagine, your own handphone ringing during your presentation! The horror! The embarrassment! And in the end, I naturally couldn’t find my notes and simply did my presentation the way it was, thank goodness I did it once before in front of my group and it turned out ok and I didn’t miss anything.

Haha… welcome home… back to the same sunset view out the balcony…
