So anyway last Friday I skipped school (cos I just added the class and the tutor probably didn't even have my name on the list) and celebrated my Gramma's 80th birthday at Long Beach @ Dempsey! (No photos; I don't really like taking food photos in restaurants cos it's weird. I will only take photos in the most low-class places but I don't eat in hawker centres so I don't think you'll ever see any HAHA) I thought her 80th birthday was last year (cos I skipped it and I had to call her to wish her happy birthday and she was like "WHY AREN'T YOU HERE!!?!?!") but that was her Chinese 80th birthday. Cos the Chinese say that when you're born, you're like a year old already (since you spent 9 months in your mum's tummy). Makes sense huh?
Long Beach @ Dempsey has a way better ambience than the East Coast one. You know we always laugh at the shiny napkin wrappers at the East Coast one cos they're printed with bikini-clad girls. :P Dempsey's sticks to plain silver. And I noticed the Dempsey crowd is full of expats. The table behind us was a group of Japanese (plus a lone ang-moh whose Japanese was really good!) so I eavesdropped on their conversation. Haha!!! The one bad thing about Dempsey is that the staircase leading to the carpark is unlit and horribly dark. Everyone walking down will be clutching the railing and we spent like 5 minutes going down it. -_-U
I'm bored and I have my camera with me, so cue the self-entertainment! (I'm also trying to figure out how to use my cam properly, cos sometimes photos turn out over-exposed and I can't figure out the flash properly tsk.)
It's been a lousy 3rd week back at school... I think my packed schedule is really ruining my health and I feel so guilty about treating my body so badly, I'm very sure that I'm aging faster than a lot of people my age. ;_; That's why I don't know why a lot of people want to become private bankers or stuff like that cos if I'm falling sick so frequently now, I can't imagine what life would be like getting by on just 3 hours of sleep every night. And seriously, I don't want to die early just for the money. It's not like I'm very poor either. I can understand the drive from people who come from poor backgrounds, but they're just misguided if they think money can solve all their problems.
Anyway, I discovered today that I'm not the only one who's been feeling unusually exhausted lately! I suppose it's because we can't really skip any classes this semester. In the past, even if we skipped classes, we could catch up by mugging a single textbook or a stack of given notes, but now we can't (or rather, I can't) because there are multiple texts, and references everywhere. I find it so troublesome to search for the notes!!! I'm like the most disorganised person around. ;_; Oh well. I hope I'll make it through this semester in one piece...
