Time waster

You will be hooked.

Do not say that I didn't warn you.
Come back when you've got time to kill.


What? O__o

You're still here??


I stumbled onto this interesting article of the world's 20 Most Amazing Coincidences ( link )
Here's an interesting one.

Henry Ziegland thought he had dodged fate.
In 1883, he broke off a relationship with his girlfriend who, out of distress, committed suicide.
The girl's brother was so enraged that he hunted down Ziegland and shot him. The brother, believing he had killed Ziegland, then turned his gun on himself and took his own life.
But Ziegland had not been killed!!!
The bullet, in fact, had only grazed his face and then lodged in a tree. Ziegland surely thought himself a lucky man.
Some years later, however, Ziegland decided to cut down the large tree, which still had the bullet in it. The task seemed so formidable that he decided to blow it up with a few sticks of dynamite. The explosion propelled the bullet into Ziegland's head, killing him.
(Source: Ripley's Believe It or Not!)

Yes, I can imagine the look on your face.
While you're at it, read the following one, it's creepy.

In the 19th century, the famous horror writer, Egdar Allan Poe, wrote a book called 'The narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym'.
It was about four survivors of a shipwreck who were in an open boat for many days before they decided to kill and eat the cabin boy whose name was Richard Parker.
Some years later, in 1884, the yawl, Mignonette, foundered, with only four survivors, who were in an open boat for many days. Eventully the three senior members of the crew, killed and ate the cabin boy. The name of the cabin boy was Richard Parker.

Heck, are you hooked??

Earlier, Soo Hui and I planned to go out and have dinner.

As we were walking along Hindley Street, we saw a bride, a groom and a group of people walking towards us and thought there was a wedding or something . . . that is, till we noticed the blood stains all over their clothes!! O__O Nyahhh~~

Fortunately for us, they decided to cross the street so we didn't have to walk past them :D
Unfortunately for us, as we walked along, there were an even larger group of zombies!
We didn't want to cross the street with them. I mean, what if they started to attack us?!


But we followed them anyway. we had no choice.
Then we walked past them when they stopped to look at something.

My heart was beating really fast.
I hate zombies okay. stupid Resident Evil.

Luckily for us, they were probably full so they didn't decide to eat our brains.

^ Proof of zombies' existence.
Don't argue with me! >=(

If you can see a lady with a veil in front, she's a bloodied bride =O

*shakes in mah furry pink boots*


I should be studying.

My first paper's Molecular Pathogenesis and it's on the 19th June...
which is like less than a month away!! *wails*



I know. I'll find any reason to procrastinate.

Look at Heechul dance!! xD

For those of you who don't know Heechul. It's a he.
Yes, I am aware he is prettier than 80% of the female population.

Me thinks Cheryl will be happy to see me blogging about Heechul.
Good Luck in your exams Cheryleepoo <3>

Lost and Found

I was strolling home a couple days ago when I came across what seemed like a piece of navy blue cloth . . but upon closer inspection it was . . . le gasp!!

I wanted to take a picture of it then but there were little school boys walking around.
I don't want to be associated with it or look like I'm some perv or something (.__.)

I'm pretty sure Soo Hui has seen it too. I shall ask her when I see her later.

Lost underwear anyone?

Picture of it on a rainy day.
How sad!! Out in the rain... soaked and cold. Probably hungry too :(

Picture of it on a sunny day
which I took this morning

No, I don't know how it got there. Or why for that matter. And I don't want to know >__<
No, I don't know whether it's been used or not. It's not as if new underwears have tags, do they? No right? Men's undies comes in boxes, no?

. . . . . Oh, I don't know! >__>

PS: Please!! It's not mine!! It's obviously guys' undies . . . *sweatdrop* If I were a guy, I'd think I'd have better taste in undies, you know!! LOL!

Guess what's in my pants

Omo~!! I laughed so hard at this! xD

It's about this dude from some TV show who went around asking ladies to guess what was in his pants. If they were able to, they'd win $500.

feed me

I've been slacking off so much lately.


And there's only a month left before my exams!
*runs around in panic before sitting down to watch Bleach*


I have been checking out a lot of food blogs lately.

Check out this one!!
Too bad she's on hiatus now. Ah well.

Just look at her collection of dessert photos!
I tried studying while the pictures scrolled by as a slideshow. Uber duber distracting dude.

Here's another food blogger. Robyn Lee... the girl who ate everything.
I love her sense of humour. =D

Try resisting. I dare you.

Last Friday (Yes, I know it's like a week ago), we had a pub crawl which went pretty well.
Over a hundred students turned up and parteeeeeeehhhhhh-ied the night away! =D

I shall get some pictures from Priya and post them up in another entry another day.
Let's just say that a lot of people can surprise you with their 'not-so-secret-anymore' wild side. *Raises eyebrow*

Someone passed out in the girls' toilet too. I don't know who it was but it wasn't a student. At least she had friends who were trying to get her up but all she did was flap her arms about with a half smile on her face.

Happy Mother's Day

Dearest mama,

When I was four, I remember sitting in the car, waiting for you so we could leave for a visit to a relative’s house. After a while, daddy asked me to check on you.
I hopped off and entered your room to find you putting on lipstick in front of the mirror. Wanting to be like you, I mimicked the way you puckered yours lips and said I wanted to try it too.
You laughed but held my chin gingerly as you applied it on me. I ran eagerly outside to show dad.
The look on his face was priceless.

When I was six, I remember pointing at a very kick-a** ‘Hello Kitty’ hair pin in a glass display and asked if I could have it.
You said no.
I asked why.
You said that I would lose it, just like every hair accessory I owned.
I said that I would keep it well and would still have it with me till I was old.
You gave in and bought it for me.
And I lost it.

Whenever I was frustrated or mad, I would hide under my bed. I would bring my blanket, pillows and a large bottle of water (for survival) with me. I’d imagine myself hiding there forever without your knowledge, occasionally coming out in search of food.
Surprisingly, you would always find me.

When I was eight, we moved houses. I remember you cooing and cuddling the baby girl next door because she was ‘oh so cute’. I thought you didn’t love me anymore because she was cuter. I was so jealous of her at the time. Looking back, I realized how silly I was.

There were times when I disappointed you.
There were times when I made you cry.
I’m truly sorry for them.
But as a mother, you’d never hold them against me.

I remember holding your hands and looking at them in wonder.
These hands cradled me. They nourished me. They cared for me.
What beautiful hands they are.

Thank you for always being there for me.

Happy Mother's Day.

Mad Lab

Lydia brought her camera to lab today.

She just wanted to take some pics of the plates that she's done for her project.

That is, until I went, "Hey take a pic of me!!"

Then suddenly a pic of me became a pic of everyone . . . =___=

^ Wei Xiang, Shirley, Lydia and your future leader

^Yes everyone, I'm not sitting on a tall stool. I have grown taller. Honest.

It became a camwhoring session.

I don't think Locky has ever seen anything like this.
There are plenty more pics where they came from but heh . . .

wouldn't want you to think I'm some sort of camwhore or anything . . .

Well, we had our presentation. The one which was 30% of our final marks.
We each could have five minutes max!
5 minutes!! 30%!!

Locky was nervous.
He brought a piece of paper along but said that he was going to keep it in his pocket and hopefully won't use it as he memorized his lines.
But half way through, he stopped then reached into his back pocket to get it.

Poor dude!!

We were the first group to go and he was the first one to start the presentation. He got a little nervous after that but after a while, he was the calm, cool and collected Locky.

I stuffed up myself.
When it was my turn, I said, "8 out of 10 bacterial strains were inhibited.. no wait, they weren't... no.. uh... oh crap."

Actually I said 'oh sh!t'
Yes, I know, not very ladylike . . . =__=

I turned to Zenah who went, "Yes, inhibited."
Thank God for Zenah!!

I could feel my face burning!!

But the lecturer, Dr. Helena was smiled and said, "Just start over."

So I did and it went pretty well until . . .
as I made eye contact with my audience, I saw this coursemate of mine (he's in a different stream though) frowning deeply at me.

I was caught off guard and fumbled a bit but then retracked so it was alright. I avoided looking at him throughout my presentation after that.

After we finished, Dr. Helena said to us, "You guys were more nervous this time."

well . . duh!! 30%!!
Nyaaah. . . >___>

Friends forever

So our new bin has finally arrived!!


And her name is Sulo.

Everyone.. meet Sulo.

For a while, we were garbage bin-less . . .
but a neighbour of ours was kind enough to lend us their extra bin.

And yes, it has a name too.


Ahh.. Zulu has been a wonderful and patient substitute. She has never ever once complained. Not even after we left her in the rain for a couple of days.

Now that Solu has arrived, Zulu will no longer feel lonely :')

We had a long lab practical session yesterday which required a lot.. a lot... and a lot of waiting.

We waited for an hour for the first section of the prac to be complete before we could proceed.
There were five minutes left before our membranes were completely soaked with anitbodies so like kids in a candy store, we eagerly started preparing for the second part... when the lab technician Daniel stormed in and in a loud booming voice, "Alright everyone. Take all your personal belongings, leave the lab and make your way out and down the fire exit, towards the car park outside. We are evacuating the building."

Everyone: O_o

But we didn't even hear a fire alarm.

Nonetheless the firemen sure came fast.
Yum, firemen :)

We didn't see the building go up in flames though. No signs of fire or a cat stuck in a tree.

It took a while but we could return soon after.
While we continued with our work, Daniel suddenly burst in to ask, "Did anyone leave their personal belongings behind?"

Everyone: . . .

Seeing the looks on our faces, he went on, "Someone did on the level above and their stuff were stolen."

Everyone: *jaw drop*

Turns out that there were 2 boys, aged 12-13 who had broke into the building and set off the fire alarm (which we did not hear -__- . . .) and stole a couple of things.
But they were caught and police were involved.
Woo.. freaky.
And it all happened in the floor above ours.
