It’s the coke withdrawal.

Still waiting for my stuff to arrive so that I can start talking about happy stuff in my blog lol.

Significant happenings in my life:

I topped up for an iphone4s!

I figured it’s about time since the 3gs is getting very wonky. It keeps turning the volume up and down for no apparent reason, which scared me because I thought my headphones/sound system in the car had problems. And then there’s the huge lag + multiple crashes generally. My friends and I have been playing with Siri just for the novelty of it, and I guess Siri doesn’t understand Singaporean English lol. It understands us better if set to US English compared to UK English, but still not good enough. There have been a few amusing answers to our queries, but I think the funniest parts were all the mistranslations of our words.

I’m trying to cut down on my coke intake.

Gasp.

J-Rock Disney and other random updates

One of the more exciting news shared by my friend Ivory.

Visual kei bands to take on Disney songs for ‘V-ROCK Disney’!

Essentially, songs from Disney films will be covered by J-rock/Visual Kei bands. And while I’m usually not very excited by the idea of “remixes”, I’m actually looking forward to this album coming out on September 7. I admit, I’m bias towards Nightmare, but at the same time, I do believe the bands can do a decent job of covering the songs without killing the inner Disney kid in us.

My guess is that A Friend Like Me is gonna sound like Nightmare’s the LAST SHOW

The Doll Affair 2011 and Horse riding lessons!

I promise to update more regularly D< What has happened significantly to me: 1. I just cut my hair again and I'm glad it's growing out of its current stye because I am not used to the blunt straight fringe. Also I get to make more waves with my grown out hair. Am amazed that I don't need to touch up my colour yet. Am half tempted to take this opportunity to try out extensions if I want to leave my hair long again... 2. I attended The Doll Affair 2011 at the Singapore Conference last Saturday and had fun =) While it's a lot more spacious, it felt less exciting than the previous times (probably because I'm no longer a helper and am now just a attendee wandering until my friends wrap up their booth to get back?) But things are always a lot more fun when you have spending monies, so I indulged a bit and bought some random stuff here and there! I think it's so funny that I tried to look for someone without knowing how she looks like. At the same time, my friend reported that said person saw me during the event, but argh I don't know how she looks like! D8 Coordinate on that day =D [caption id="attachment_60" align="aligncenter" width="200" caption="I love my military motif jacket."]I love my military motif jacket.[/caption]

Skirt: Atelier Pierrot (borrowed from Jasmine)
Everything else: Off brand (Thanks Steph for lending me her hat at the last minute!)

3. I’ve been trying to study hard and I think it’s finally paying off for this semester. Almost near the end of the first half of the semester before I switch to the next modules, so don’t give up, self! I’ll have to slap myself to remind myself that it’s it’s only 2 modules atm so it’s a lot more manageable.. that and the fact there were no huuuge assignments and regular homework (except for a grand total of 2 essays).

Oh and that the exams are easier (for me). Less memorising, more application. (I’ll cry if I have to memorise all these stupid itty bitty little words..)

4. I just finished my first horse riding lesson! It’s super fun! The instructor’s going at a super fast speed, but I’m sure he will slow down at the 2nd lesson. No way am I prepared for a trot just after one class. No Way. I’ll be smashing into fences and trees before I even complain about my ass hurting from all the trotting.

The first time I got on the horse (called Bob), I gave a tiny squeal at the height (and how I’m generally not having my feet on the ground at all). The instructor commented that I shouldn’t do that unless I want Bob to think that he has a savage wild beast sitting on him LOL orz. And when the instructor left me to tend to my friend who’s also taking classes with me, Bob kept fidgeting and tried desperately with his head and one leg to scratch himself. And I just.. desperately clung on D8 Well I didn’t dare to cling cling for fear of Bob moving backwards (he will if you pull on the reins too much), so I was more of… swaying along with him as if I’m on a boat.

And he kept on biting his damn bit it was unnerving me! D8 Was I doing something wrong?! My friend’s didn’t seem to be doing it!

My fear for future lessons would be that I keep repeating the same mistakes until the instructor gets impatient. And then I’ll fumble even more. I just know it will happen. I can imagine it. He’ll skin me for my steering and all that.. up down up down shit.

And yey, due to some miscommunication, I got both of us a $50 discount each off our lessons hohoho! /SHOT

I should buy a pair of pants for this..
