A million things on my to-do list, yet here I am…
Justification: MUST do this before September ends else the months will soon snowball into years.
01 The Move
Activated my whole family for help, lol. We had lunch at canteen two before heading back home for a movie marathon.
02 Lexin Baby Shower
04 Melanie Lunch // Troopers Dinner
It was Melanie’s last week at IMCB, so we decided to eat the A*STAR banmian for one last time. A year later and the auntie still remembers me! Well, maybe it’s not that hard to forget someone who buys the same thing from you every single day for a period of six months. Nevertheless, I was still pretty touched. It’s amazing how much comfort the littlest things such as this can give – an assurance that your past wasn’t just a dream or a figment of your imagination. Anyway, it was a nice nostalgic lunch with Melanie :)
Met up with Troopers for dinner that night at Minds’ Cafe – our last outing before school starts!
05 Dental // Freshmen Welcome
I made a card for the dentist and bought him chocolates because I thought it was really the last time I’ll be seeing him EVER. That’s what happened last year except I forgot to pass it to him.
Me: I actually wanted to give them to you last year but forgot to bring!
Dentist: WHAT?! So you are giving me expired chocolates now??!
Me: Noooooo! I bought new ones!
Then he gave me another appointment for next year. So I’ll still be seeing him again, lol.
Visited the Shrine of Emmarlene that night for some fortune-telling. It was unfortunate that we had to witness the mistreat of Mingrui’s dog by Songyu. The night’s events were disrupted by a creepy dude. Ugh.
06 ADM Day Camp
Finally met our classmates! G5 seems like a cute bunch – we can’t draw for nuts (as you can probably tell from our banner). The day ended late and I had to cancel dinner plans with Jillyn :( Ended up dining with Troopers at JP.
The queue at the customs was crazy so we postponed our JB trip and went to Upper Thomson for dimsum instead!
08 Min Lunch // Researchers Dinner
Lunch was arranged specially so that min could pass me a whole bunch of stuff, it’s almost as if Christmas came early. Where else can you find such a good friend?!!
Missing: Daiqian, Melvin, Thamil, Victor, Wenjin
09 National Day
Featuring Golden Jubilee Baby Lexin at EGG’s
10 JB Day Trip
A mini retreat before school starts for real, whoop! Feeling thankful towards ahyi and yizhang for driving me back to hall that night and for piling me with heaps of food and stuff, hahaha.
First week of school = no tutorial = lunch with socks = yay
Many thanks to Gretel and Wenjin for coming all the way to Pulau NTU and for sending me home!
12 CCA Fair
No hesitation – harmonica it is.
13 Art Shopping
My god was it tiring!!! But we met Dee’s girlfriend, Jasmine, that day and she’s so nice and friendly! Then Nicolas, Reynard, Zhixin and I almost lost our marbles on the train back to boonlay.
14 Harmonica Welcome Tea
WHY MUST NANYANG HOUSE BE UP ON A BLOODY HILL?
16 Artfriend with Zhixin
That place used to bring me joy. Now all I feel is pockets getting lighter, lol.
17 Troopers Dinner, Pioneer Canteen
19 Clay Modelling with Zhixin and Shuainan
22 4D Photoshoot with Min
Min is hands down the BESTEST friend one could ever ask for. I AM BEYOND GRATEFUL TvT
23 Printing is expensive
Was supposed to help Orion with his 4D shoot but (-_-“) I don’t even know what to say lol.
24 THE MYSTERIOUS ROOMIE IS FINALLY HERE!
Had dinner with Shinyin that night, she introduced me to the stir-fried yong tau foo at Quad.
26 4D Assignment One Submission
27 Troopers Pizza Party
Zhixin and I planted our butts in ADM and drew non-stop from 2pm to 11pm. There was some event going on and we managed to kope some beehoon from the buffet line, hehe. Made small talk with countless people throughout our camp there and I’ve come to the conclusion that ADM people are really super friendly and easy to talk to! Pizza party turned into Macs party and I still had to continue shading cubes and spheres there, but it was nice meeting up with the first bunch of friends I’ve made in school :)
30 Family Buffet
August’s been pretty eventful.
ADM’s just so different but at least for now, I’m happy where I am and that’s what matters :)
