silver-tipped hair, (purple/gold) glitter spray, spammmm glowsticks, face paint, glowing earrings, eye masks– we’re gonna ownnnn


PB Formal Farewell :’)

I seem to be saying farewell to so many things (way more than I’m prepared for!)– be it through a grand ceremony, or silently in my heart– our principal, my school, my juniors in Prefectorial Board… Mmm not sure what to feel, just know a myriad of feelings

And here’s my tribute to PB, in the only way I know how– in simple, sincere, warm words (language is beautiful!) and in maybe in a poem or two.

PB has been an amazing journey for me– shaping defining me and hahaha I saw Gen’s video, boy have I changed over the years!! I used to be this derpy person haha I’ve grown so much, been an awestruck junior, a maturing year 3, shy new house captain emceeing impromptu gatherings, a leader, a pioneer of a project now!! Never thought I would be able to claim this but :’)

TBC! Gtg sleep now :)

BUT I guess a wonder of life is that i seem to be greeting equally many things! Be it the seniors I missed, my new school and campus, new subjects, the prospect of new friends, new CCAs, new environment… Whole New Beginnings!

“A new day is a fresh start, make the most of it!” “一年之计在于春,一日之计在于晨。” — I’m not too sure if they’re synonyms but haha whatever la!!

Kecil tapak tangan, nyiru saya tadahkan. So many people to thank!! :)

happy days and free days :)

haha i felt like it’s been an AGE since I’ve last posted, time has an odd odd way of toying with your mind haha :)

these past few days have been nothing short of absolutely beautiful– :’)

the musical dream<3 everything’s going so brilliantly so far! almost everyone has finished our exams and we’re working hard on this and brimming with hope :) our outing’s coming up soon, and we already have TWO scheduled appearances! we’re heading down to  meet one of the organisations to discuss and finalise our plans with them next week, even so they’ve already confirmed and allocated a day for us, somehow their confidence and resolve is that unshakable, and i really hope we’ll deliver nothing but the best! and my friend heard about us, and requested we perform at the new year’s eve party she organised for the children at KK hospital. our musical directors are kicking into action, and we’re gonna meet as a band to practice in the very near future! :D

music :) haha dang i seem to be taking guitar and violin O levels rather than chinese and malay! yes i really am practicing them every single day :D i’m getting better at fingerstyle playing for my guitar, and by extension my premium brand, my ukulele –heehee pokemon reference for the confused–; and improving rapidly for my violin. i’m so thankful for the opportunity to learn both of them! and i really like my teachers, they really love music and their instrument for its beauty– no pretenses, no getting overwhelmed by money, or little problems in life. music seems to gently carry them away to a different dimension, a whole new world, and its fascinating to watch.

my guitar teacher, mr clinton: i’ve been playing since i was 9, and my guitar’s like my xbox, playstation, what’s that you have? ah yes, ds! all combined. i’d study, then play guitar, then study, then play. i think its lovely, it’s everything combined, and everything i needed to relieve stress… even now when i go on holiday, i keep looking for a place to jam! *laughs*. my violin teacher is pretty young, and super sensitive too haha. once after a particularly long continuous bit of playing, “pass me your violin?” he asks. “are you tired? you looked really tense while playing, (and you didn’t seem like you’re enjoying it). rest for a bit, we’ll continue in a while alright?” completely unexpected coming from a guy, but then again i guess music sensitises one to many many things.

music aside, they inspire me on a whole different level. they show me, they are living proofs, that there are amazing guys on this planet, i just have to be a little patient. :) my future partner better not be music illiterate! or at least, willing to learn and love music… because now that i’ve discovered it, i’m not gonna let music fade away from my life. :) a duet would be beautiful. and on that note…

friends! :) really getting to know all of them better, making new friends (yes, still!!1!). we were singing in class today, harmonizing together to the guitar. :D  teaching some of my schoolmates how to play the guitar now!! (most of us already can though yay), i can’t wait for when we can play together!

friends do drift apart. although i usually advocate patching up our friendship (in literature people don’t give up old for new!) but… i don’t think this is accidental, and i genuinely believe that it’ll be for the better if i selectively allow some of them to… fade. i’m surprisingly sharp despite my lack of experience but i just pray that God guides me while we choose my path together.

reading ^^ haven’t read a book for almost a month, and went out with my friends so much, i felt like the overflowing spring of knowledge deep inside me was drying up x) reading the hobbit now, and ‘the optimism bias’! I have goodreads now so add add meeee~ both are really good books and i have so much to say about the optimism bias ahhh okay look out for another post!

results :) a fantastic bonus i didn’t dare to hope for. my results are surprisingly excellent!! :D so happy yay yay yayy now it’s just O levels to work towards! michelle, you must promise to consistently revise malay and chinese everyday okay!! but i’m not too worried… yet hahaha.

meaning in life :) – TMD, TSP, something :)

definitely caught my eye!! i wanna go but…


i have TMD now<3 our dream haha must nurture this baby– we’re doing so incredibly well, ideas bubbling, excitement building, this will go somewhere!!

and i got into The Singlish Project! haha remember the post i made a long long while back :) wow.

and i wanna sign up for Meet-the-People Sessions! the recent national conversation with MP Mdm Halimah was really interesting, and much like pb (okay my late-night analogies are not very known for saneness but–) i think being a government is difficult. so many different groups to consider, our state, and of course the greater good. :)

should i? :O swinging a little between both binaries but must follow my heart. while we’re still young!!

goodnight, world :)

4,765km away? No problem!! ;D

hahaha the night’s silence broken by my peals of laughter as I talk to my friend in Bhutan. Ironically, not the friend I met, but her 24 year old sister! ;) They stay in a farm!!! A REAL HUGE FARM and their cash crop is potato~ *reminds me of the despicable me song na na na na banana. potato naaa!” i’ve always wanted to go!

yay :D i don’t know how my question about our geog case study on bhutan’s ecotourism and gross national happiness came to this but it’s so exciting! 2 friendly spirits combined :) can’t wait till my jordan friend replies! i’m like grand central station trololol ;)

to an amazing bunch :)

take 5 <3 i love us :) — what with our random-emceeing, late night snacks, three-sherbet rule, epic morning meetings, sleepover choingsters ttm :) hahaha how to condense so much into words! sleepy brain’s incapable of it as of now but captaincy is so much more than a title with people around. the brevity of human lives are secondary to the experiences we have, past… or present, or future. :)

house practice was incredible today! refreshing and refilled our ‘happy jars’. :) and i guess i learnt that it’s okay to just go out there and be yourselves, coz people love you so much more for your lack of facade. today we had mass dance prac and our hadlians weren’t too enthu at first, but prancing around on the stage really helped, i think. :) y’know the power-responsibility graph pb, house and well, everyone, always shows me? the one where more power means more responsibility means less freedom because of more expectations? well, more power may mean less freedom, but it doesn’t lead to less genuine self-expression, i’m sure of it!

our mass dance song~

the new songs on my playlist are so nice ahh okay they’ve officially sneaked their way into my blog. XD

`two kids, no consequences;
we were destined to explode~
