03 National Gallery
We saw art history come alive, up-close and personal, that day 🙂
Incidentally, I chanced upon the above still-life by Georgette Chen. Did I single it out because it was a remarkable painting? Or was it because Huimin and I had spent countless hours recreating this piece with acrylic during our lower secondary IAP art days?
04 Dinner with Olivia & Madeline
05 Harmonica Outing // SCO Concert
Ended up missing both because it rained that day and I was lazy ._.”
07 FOC Interview
10 Lebin turns Three
Week 01: 我不要姑姑去学校！姑姑不要走！
Week 02: 姑姑，你走吧！你去学校吧！
Week 03: BYE-BYE!
Wow is this boy is growing up fast 😥
Had curry with Huizhong for dinner at Canteen 16 before meeting the small group for practice. Poor Darrell got all the tough parts, hahaha! But that’s what you get when you are good. I’ll never have that problem. At least not anytime soon ._.”
12 Family BBQ
17 Errands Day
Met mum and EGG for lunch at valley point to pass him the concert tickets. It was such a pity our mini performance coincides with the concert day, I was really looking forward to hearing Mr Tang and other professionals play (T-T) Headed to sunshine plaza to print some stuff before hitting the library (^-^) It’s been a really long time!!! Met up with Huizhong and Xintian back in school before harmonica practice that night. It was a day well spent.
19 Performance Day
20 Churros & Ceramics
I swear, part of my un-girlishness lies in not having a sweet tooth. I couldn’t even finish one single churro. But it was great seeing Zhixin again. And as usual, the two of us almost got lost on our way to the ceramics exhibition at the Teochew House. Waipo made tangyuan that night 🙂
Something funny happened!!! As I was waiting at the reception after polishing, something big and brown zoomed by and landed on the sofa beside me.
!!!!!!!!!! IT WAS A FRIGGING HUGE ASS FLYING COCKROACH !!!!!!!!!!
The guy on my right jumped from his seat like he just received 50000 volts through his butt, and proceeded to arm himself with a roll of magazine. I think I did a good job remaining relatively calm even though I was sort of freaking out inside, hahaha.
22 Softball // FOC Meeting
Watched two of my friends play, albeit in opposing teams. It felt good to be under the sun again after what’s probably forever. Lunched with Ryan and Nicolas before meeting our FOC team for the first time! I’m so super excited hehehehehe.
23 SP Reunion Day
A day of nostalgia – lunch with kow and jolene, dinner with the researchers. Mr. Lui was still the same, though I should probably switch to addressing him as Dr. Lui now. Conversations with every person I met that day reminded me of the reason(s) I left the science field. It is complicated business, alright. But I’m really glad to have turned up for I wouldn’t have realised how sorely I needed that reminder. Besides, charades with the researchers was fun 🙂
As with any other day, my family had dinner together 🙂
27 4310 BBQ
Because I’m too sentimental for my own good, that’s why.
28 Dinner with Sok & Weilin
Isn’t it amazing how some people can just click? It’s odd in a nice way that the three of us could have nurtured such a strong bond in just two weeks. This bond is incomparable to even those forged over a much longer period of time, say, four years? Mind-blowing indeed.
29 FOC Meeting
Still damn psyched up. That’s good, right?
31 Troopers Countdown
Really enjoyed Mingrui’s game of jenga. It was a superb idea, and definitely A+ for her effort!!!
So not looking forward to the last week of holidays. Confronting the wheel after four months.
