So this would be my first post about life in MDIS, of course besides my post about the first day of school!
So far so good, I met some people who seem really nice and we all get along well.
I don't know everyone in my class yet, and I doubt I will even by the end of this year because we are all so different and there's 60 people for gods sake!
I can tell that there are people who don't quite like me already, but I don't really care.
I suppose a lot of my classmates think I'm a bimbo (cuz I always have full make up and I'm more dressy compared to most of them, plus I am always joking around and seem aloof / nonchalant / airhead)
Some even told me their first impression of me was that I'm very unfriendly / snobbish / arrogant and that I smoke/drink/club often so I was really pleased when they told me I turned out to be nice afterall! <--------- LAWLZ And they were like, "You don't like club or smoke?! HUH??? But you look like you do!"
And one even commented he thought I was a working adult -_-
....This is why they always say your appearance is very important, because that's what peoples first impressions are based on.
But whatever I am not going to stop wearing fake eyelashes and dress/act otherwise just because others might mistake me as a bimbo or whatever they have in mind right?
I get so tired of introducing or explaining myself to people I've just met or people who don't know me, sometimes I put on a show for them.
They can think what they want of me, it's easier this way than trying to make the world understand..
My lecturer's last name is Hawabi and I can't remember if she's Ms or Mrs, judging by her age she should be Mrs but whatever let's just call her Hawabi only cos it sounds funny.
She's teaching communications and some parts of her lecture are SOSOSOSO B.S!!!!!!!!
Plus she has got that amazing lullaby voice that just makes you wanna zzz...
I am considering not going to school tomorrow. I had an anemia "attack" just now, I haven't felt like I was gonna faint for a really long time now since I took iron pills in the past and got better, but earlier on in the MRT on my way home, I wasn't feeling too good as I was having bad baaaad menstrual cramps..
So I got off the mad-packed train straight away at Dhoby Ghaut and took a cab home instead. Thank goodness there wasn't a lot of people waiting for cabs.
I SWEAR I could have just fainted right there, you should have seen how pale and wobbly I was!!!!
I was soo scared cos I didn't wanna just faint in the middle of Plaza Sing, y'know?!
I hate it when my anemia / migraine / cramps / low blood pressure gets to me, it makes me feel really weak, especially for my case of anemia / blood pressure problem, when I feel like I'm going to faint, I actually feel like I'm going to die.
Like suddenly I have no strength, I'm losing focus of everything and I can't even breathe or walk properly anymore.
Anyway, back to school topic...
Like my chocolate roll with strawberries and cream on top?! ^.^ (pencil box)
Proof that I do pay attention in class... sometimes :P
Close up of my notes:
Me and Natashah!
The rest were smoking / eating during break time...
LOL we set it to self-timer and it turned out like this
Me and Chloe!!
We took group pictures but they're in Gwen's laptop!! Once she sends them to me I'll post them up :)
Ok I am soooooo tired right now.
Honesty is the best policy - why have so many people forgotten that?
We hide the truth from people we care about because we think it would shield them from pain, but more often than not, we inflict greater pain upon them in the end.
I have lied about many things, and I've been lied to about many things as well.
Perhaps it's through so much lying that I've finally started to tell the truth more often.
It's so much easier to tell the truth, because the truth will never change, whereas when you tell one lie, you have to tell another lie to cover up the lie you told before and the vicious cycle never ends.
The saddest thing is when a person lies so much, he just doesn't know what's real or not anymore.
I would rather be told the truth, even though it may not be what I want to hear, but hey - reality is never sugar-coated.
Admitting the truth is part of realizing your mistake.
Mistakes are inevitable, but how many of us actually learn from them? If we never actually suffer the consequences, how would we ever realize what we've done wrong?
Of course, after talking about how people lie too much etc etc, I am not saying that I always tell the truth.
I do lie, sometimes, but I try to avoid it as much as possible.
Everyone is a hypocrite deep down inside - some just don't realize it, and some just don't feel bad about it.
Yesterday was my first day at....
I was about 10 mins late... so much for being good for the first day!
On the way to school with my brother, I couldn't help but feel nervous.
I wondered what it'd be like... I honestly didn't know what to expect.
Not only was I late, I was also LOST. My timetable stated Block E room 128 but when I walked to Block E, I saw 125, 127 and.... 130.
WHERE WAS 128?!?!
Finally after walking around some time, I found the lecture room. I peeped inside and it seemed too... quiet. I hesitated for awhile before entering and when I did, I saw that everyone already had seats and were staring at me like o.o
So I quickly sat down at the nearest seat I could reach in the 1st row...
Pleasantly enough, my lecturer Mr Siew was actually quite funny and entertaining although too cheesy/corny sometimes. We were given a HUGEASS textbook that weighs like 3kg wtf.
And even worse, I thought today was the same lesson so I brought the same textbook but it was a different lecturer and she gave us ANOTHER 3kg book! (kua zhang a bit but really VERY heavy la.)
My bag was so heavy, could die! Poor James had to carry it all around for me :P
I copied down a lot of notes... I don't remember when was the last time I've actually written that much!!
I was quite focused throughout the lecture except I zoned out a few times, expectedly.
The first person I talked to was Natasha, a girl who happened to take the seat beside mine.
I couldn't believe we didn't have any form of introduction... They just distributed the books to us and started the lesson.
The atmosphere was cold and empty, thankfully my teacher broke the ice with some of his (funny and others not-so-funny) jokes.
Today, I made more friends and we had some form of introduction....
Everybody had to sit in groups (we wasted a lot of time getting ourselves sorted out) and choose a topic, then stand in front of the class and talk about it.
That took up the entire day since my class has SIXTY people.
SIXTY FREAKIN' PEOPLE!!!
Huuuuge class... With a lot of different people.
I'm the youngest in my class I think.
If you're wondering how the people there are like, well...
Since we have 60 people, we have all sorts of personalities.
I know MDIS has a lot of china people but we only have 1 china student in our class. Mostly females. We have "rockers" and "bimbos" and "geeks" and "slackers"...
Of course that's all judged based only on superficial outer appearance and behaviour. I wouldn't know eh, it's just the 2nd day today for me.
Anyway it's quite a whirlwind for me, I don't know what else to say...
I guess I'm gonna need some time to get used to the school, and the people, and the subject.
I like how we are treated like young adults in the school and not children.
And I am thirsty now so I am gonna grab a drink.
*is back with pink dolphin*
So Maryann was such a darling, she called me at like 9+am on 20 apr cuz she knew it was my first day of school and wanted to know if I was doing okay!
So sweettt... thanks for remembering dear! That was the best wake up call I've had so far in 2009 :P
I met up with Fidel in school and after school yesterday~~
Then we went to town to eat MOS Burger!
I was sooo craving for it.
My FAV fast food place. Gotta love their thick fries, butterfly prawns, apple soda, strawberry and of course their FISH BURGER!
I took your advice guys! Tonged my hair, tied it up and put it to the side and I applied some kind of cream that I thought would hold the curls but the cream weighed down my curks instead, so it looks quite shitty in this photo. LOL.
I like bouncy curls.
We must go out every Monday after school together!
HAHAHA she is so cute when she does this!!! It's my fav expression of her :D
And after school today I met up with another pretty babe of mine....
Haven't seen you in fucking AGES so finally la!!!!!
We went back to our same old spot at Lucky Plaza, the staff there recognize us now... LOL.
Today we ordered something new!
Nom nom nom... you are so hungry after looking at this juicy flavorful red chicken picture, I know!
Egg prata and mutton curry.
I LOVE HOW THEIR MUTTON CURRY IS ALWAYS DIFFERENT EVERYDAY!
So I can go back to the same place and NOT get bored cos there's variety... yayyyyy.
And the best - BUTTER NAN!!
Ok I need to go to bed now.
I'm having pink dolphin and seaweed for supper.
And I am sleepy.
And there is school tomorrow AGAIN WTF.
Slacker Jess is not used to it la... Slacker Jess is used to waking up at 4pm everyday and doing nothing and anything she likes anytime anywhere.
THANK GOD NO SCHOOL ON FRIDAYS!!!!!! THANK YOU AH,
I feel like sleeping the day away tomorrow cos I don't like to be so busy and I am so sleepy la I tell youuuuuuuu.
I am happy because
1) School went relatively well today and yesterday, made new friends
2) I met up with Fidelis and my BF yesterday and met up with Maryann and my BF today and had our fav indian food! Super delicious.
3) After indian food just now, me and baby went to watch TAKEN which was an awesome, exciting and funny show
4) There was no moth attacking me when I came home just now (there was a HUGE colorful one last night.... gross)
5) James has been nice enough to me for the past few days and I've been eating a lot of greaaat delish food that I've been craving for
6) ...How many reasons does a girl need to be happy?!?!
Well just 5 for me!!!
Watch this space, will replace it with a new post soon.
It's only the 2nd day of school but I feel busy like a buzzzinggg beeeee.... Soooooo tired.
I NEED MORE HOURS IN A DAY TO SLEEP!
School starts tomorrow!!!! :o
And how did I get myself ready for a brand new term of school?
I let myself be pampered, of course!
I went to SABAI JAI, by Milly's, for a full body massage!
I was greeted by friendly and experienced Thai masseurs, and to my delight there was nobody else at the SABAI JAI!
I thought I had the whole place to myself... But by an hour later, the place was COMPLETELY packed. Madness. It's that popular?!
I like how traditional the whole place looks...
I think massage parlours are very hypnotizing places cuz of the dim lighting and soothing music, and of course, with the right decorations!
Stepping into SABAI JAI reminded me of the time my mum used to own a private spa.
I used to go down to her spa every other day to get facials and massages and be pampered in all sorts of ways but I haven't had such treatment in awhile cos I'm lazy to travel all the way to one place just to get a facial done.
Needless to say I was very pleased when Milly introduced SABAI JAI to me, because SABAI JAI is by Milly's, which is a beauty parlour that specializes in hair and eyelash extensions! Also located ar Far East Plaza, just 2 storeys above.
Milly sure knows how to make a girl happy!
Upon entering SABAI JAI, we were given comfortable clothing to change into...
I brought Peggy dear along with me! We look like we're in matching PJs :P
When we were all ready in comfortable clothing, they told us to go lie on twin beds and I thought it was a great idea to have 2 beds side by side cuz then you could have private couple massages with your boyfriend / girlfriend!
My mum's massage parlour had separate beds in the past so I couldn't talk to my boyfriend/friend a few metres away from me...
But just now I had Peggy lying right beside me and most of the time we were chatting and giggling away~
Then our massage began...
It was very relaxing, although some parts it was a little painful but a little pain during a massage is always good!
I realized that the way they massaged was different from the ones I've experienced before, thai massage includes a lot more "pressing", rather than the "rubbing" method malay and chinese masseurs have used on me.
I think I like the Thai "pressing" method more since they don't need to use smelly massage oil the "rubbing" method requires!!
The last thing I want is to walk around Far East Plaza looking and feeling greasy.
It wasn't long before me and Peggy found ourselves in all sorts of interesting positions... LOL.
The Flying Kick Position
The Let's Pretend Backbones Don't Break Position
It was a very thorough massage!
From my toes to my butt to my back to my arms to my head. LOL.
I enjoyed it a lot, even the pain at some points, cos they really know how to pull and stretch your muscles in a way that you feel like you've done yoga by just lying there :P
Peg obviously enjoyed herself a lot too!
My masseur is a woman but she had such strength!
I asked them what SABAI JAI meant, and they said it's Thai language for "relaxed and happy".. That's such a cute and appropriate name, because we left SABAI JAI feeling relaxed and with a smile on our faces!
The experience overall was great, and I'd definitely go back again for another massage. Hope Milly won't mind me popping by too often ;)
James has also been dying to try out their massage and was so jealous when I told him I was gonna bring Peggy first, ahaha!
I'll bring my baby there next week for a treat.
My massage lasted for an hour and the usual price is $48. They also have 40 mins full body massage, foot massages etc...
Definitely your place to visit after some hardcore, strenuous shopping in FEP!
Some other information taken from Milly:
What is Thai Massage?
Thai massage is an alternative massage therapy, also known as Thai Yoga, Thai Yoga Massage, Thai Classical Massage, or Thai bodywork. Thai massage is getting popular because it is both relaxing and energizing.
Thai massage therapist uses hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. Through deep muscle stretching, joint release and emphasis breathing, Thai massage offers many of the same benefits as yoga - You can get flexibility, inner organ massage, oxygenation of the blood and quieting of the mind from Thai massage.
Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work (You remain passive while the Thai massage therapist does the movements to you). You can be amazed by how much more you are able to move and stretch when the Thai massage therapist does the movements to you.
Why Do People Get Thai Massage?
Thai massage can help many people to relax and reduce stress.
SABAI JAI is owned by Milly, who also operates

Milly's is currently having a promotion,

Why hesitate? Every girl deserves to be pampered like a princess!
After our massage, me and Peggy headed to my fav. indian food place at Lucky Plaza, a.k.a foreign workers hang out, and that's not one of my fav places to go cos I get stared at like I'M the weird-looking one.. Seriously.
Anyway I really have to thank Maryann for introducing this place to me cos the food is good and so bladdy cheap and its value for money and MARYANN THIS IS WHAT YOU GET FOR NOT MEETING ME RECENTLY:
The best prata I've had in a long time!!!
My all time FAV dish - mutton curry!!! Plus butter chicken.
I remember a few nights ago during the nuffnang dinner all the other bloggers were taking pictures of the food before they ate even though I suspect they were hungry and I was like,
"walao, food is for eating, not for taking pictures of!!" and I greedily ate my food while they were taking pictures... LOL.
Then Ming said, "then you're not a true blogger!"
...Well guess what Ming, I'm a true indian-food blogger cos I ALWAYS take pics of my mutton curries even though they all pretty much look like the same brownish mashed up mess so there, hah!
After stuffing ourselves silly, we went back to my place and.....
I love camwhoring with my lappy's inbuilt cam cos it's so low-res, there's no need for any editing xD
And they upload sooo fast...
Us after changing into our bikinis!!!!
I looooove my flower bikini..
Peg's one is cute as well, pink with black polkadots!
During the past 2 weeks, I've went swimming like 6 times...
I've been swimming a lot recently, since I want to become healthier by exercising but I don't wanna feel hot and sweaty!
Swimming is fun and a good exercise too.. But I would NEVER go to a public pool because they're all so filthy!!! Omg.
I remember swimming in a swimming complex in Hougang many years back and I saw dead bees floating everywhere... And brown stuff on the floor that looked like poop.
So yes, I'm very thankful I live in Savannah because it is so beautiful here!
Except the crazy amount of bugs and moths that have been attacking my home recently. I HATE YOU.
5 days ago, I was eating Mango Sticky Rice while watching Harper's Island on TV when an effing moth came out of nowhere and flew right into my face, causing me to fling Mango Sticky Rice everywhere and scream so loud that James covered his ears. And I ran all the way to my room and refused to come out. I HATE MOTHS.
2 days ago, I was having supper and enjoying my McSpicy when out of nowhere, this moth fluttered around my head, causing me to ditch my delicious McSpicy and made me wake my mother up by my scream and I ran all the way back to my room and only came out to finish my burger before taking refuge in my room again. I HATE MOTHS.
5 hours ago, I was enjoying my very cold shower and minding my own business when this moth came out of nowhere, and when I say nowhere I MEAN NOWHERE cos I checked the bathroom thoroughly before bathing, causing me to run out of the bathroom naked.
And that's ONLY for the past 5 days.
I FUCKING HATE MOTHS AND BUTTERFLIES!!!!!!
Abrupt end with 2 photos of 2 girls in 2 bikinis.
