My MotoBabe ticked me off the other day. She said I'm very naughty for not updating my blog. BLEARGH. So here I am. Hahaha. Actually it's time for an update too, I have loads of photos!

I fell really ill last week, but thankfully nothing as bad as last year's little episode. This time I got a fever that Would Not Go Away. I ended up sleeping away my Friday afternoon, after sitting in the office for the longest time, sniffling away and finally giving up and going to see the doctor. I also missed out on the fun ExcelFest and a chance to see my Math CT. )= I rested all day at home on Saturday, and my mother scolded me for not seeing a doctor the first chance I could. So I've decided to take things easy and not put too much stress on myself. Now I know why teachers get all kinds of funny stress-related illnesses... It's all psychological! On Monday, I was sitting at my desk thinking of how overwhelming my marking was, and I felt a familiar panic rising and giving me a headache. So I decided to relax... and that's how I have five piles of marking waiting for me. d=

1/ NIE Convocation

I absolutely swear that this is the last convocation I'm ever going to go for. I hate convocations, there is nothing fun about them at all.

Pic 453: Strawberry Girl and me! I really like this picture, maybe because it's one of the few pictures in which I don't look like I'm going to drop dead at any second.

Pic 454: My beloved babes, the ones I hung out with most often in NIE.

Pic 455: Part of my Math class in NIE!

2/ Racial Harmony Day

We commemorated RHD on Friday, and I wore a pretty purple punjabi suit! I bought it the day before, so Saizou, I ended up not wearing yours. d= A picture speaks a thousand words, so here goes:

Pic 456: The Monstress and me. Her last day in the school, cos she's done with her ESE and off to the life of an NIE student. Lucky her! (Slight edit: the second pic is from her camera, and I'm putting it up cos it shows off the actual colour of my suit. Nice, right?!)

Pic 457: MotoBabe and me!! I like this picture! Please ignore my pink slippers. I wear them around the staffroom... and sometimes around school after school hours. Hehe.

Pic 458: Mei Nǚ and Sareeeee. That stupid babe not looking at the camera, so dao!

Pic 459: Haha that's much better.

Pic 460: MotoBabe scolded me for not acting hiao. But I can't act hiao! I am absolutely not hiao at all. I am so young and innocent.

Pic 461: Sari does not appreciate MotoBabe's affections.

Actually there's a picture that is really great to caption, but unfortunately it is not work safe, so I'm not going to post it up. Too bad!!!

3/ Invisible City

I watched an indie arty film on Friday. It is Invisible City by Tan Pin Pin, director of Singapore GaGa. I got nice posters to put up on my cubicle (if I can find the wall space for it)! It is really nice, and if you have the time, please do go watch it. I really enjoyed it!

And it's a wrap!

convocations and mutiliated pooh bears

Hehe, I keep thinking of my colleague's description of her kids and I keep smirking to myself. Anyway, today she brought back a little 'souvenir' from her class. She said, "EH, show you all ah!" Me and Sari were like, "What's that????" The siao zha bor said, "It's a mutiliated pooh bear." SICK SHIT CAN. But I laughed cos the way she said it deadpan was very funny.

Pic 437: Basically her kids ripped off the head of the pooh bear, then stuffed a broken pen through the center of the stuffed toy's body. The kids are damn sick.

Pic 438: Sari and MotoBabe with the mutiliated pooh bear. They stuck it up on their divider, but it kept dropping down, so they threw it away. )=

Pic 439: MotoBabe's desk. Messy, hor.

Pic 440: Sari pretending to be busy at her desk. She so cute larh, I was taking the picture and the silly babe kept moving her head from left to right to left to right, acting busy.

Pic 441: My fellow co-teacher for one of my Math classes, also pretending to be busy.

Pic 442: This one didn't even know I was taking a picture of him.

I forgot to take a picture of my desk!!! But it has so many books on it, it's scary. Chris walked over, saw my table, asked me which stack I've finished marking, and I said, "I haven't marked any of them. The one stack I've marked is already outside." I can't find things on my desk most of the time. I can't find my DESK most of the time. Haha.

Attended two convocations! I was there cos I could make the timing (in the afternoon), and also because I know it's damn shitty to be all alone while everyone else around you is taking pictures like crazy.

Pic 443: First, there was my Meimei! SMSed her to tell her I was on my way down, and she replied that she was still inside the auditorium, and "scared cos of all the balloons". Haha it amused me greatly until I got to NUS and got un-amused cos I parked very far away, and had to walk a great distance to UCC. >:(

Pic 444: Then I found a momok! The momok forgot to charge her camera batt properly the night before, so I ended up being her 'official photographer' for the rest of the afternoon.

Pic 445: Found an old classmate! She sat next to me all through sec 3 and sec 4, I think.

Pic 446: Then we were graced by the presence of a monkey and an Ah Loy, back from the cold harsh climate of Russia.

Pic 447: And I took my favouritest picture of the day. I Was Here!

Then yesterday, I went for the Chen Zhao's convocation. Almost couldn't make it down, cos I had so much work piled on me, I wanted to die. (I say that a million times a day, and I'm still not dead yet.)

Pic 448: Only when I was searching for the Zhao did I remember that 6/6 Vision's commencement was on the same day too! Luckily he was standing near where Zhao was, together with his zha bor.

Pic 449: I always think it's damn weird when Kendo and the other parts of my life collide. I can never get used to the fact that kendo and non-kendo people know each other.

Pic 450: TimToh trying to make Zhao feel better.

Pic 451: Boon and Wen not trying to make Zhao feel better. I'm sorry, but Wen really looks like a strung out junkie.

Pic 452: A nice one with the guys being nice to Zhao.

I found another friend, and old secondary school classmate whom I used to affectionately call Piglette cos she could snort like Drew Barrymore in the credits of the first Charlie's Angels movie. But because I look like shit in the photos (only had 4 hours of sleep the night before, and 5 hours the night before that), I'm not going to destroy the aesthetics of my blog by putting up nightmarish crap.

More pics soon, cos I'm graduating again tmr. Lonely convocation x 2!!!
