Ok, as all of you can see, I've added a brand new banner into the site. I don't really see any fault in trying, and I don't really expect to earn like a lot of money. But if you guys can find the time to support me by all means please do, after all, a click isn't that difficult a thing to do...

Dance tech class yesterday was tough. I've never had my whole body been so worked up before, not even in AJ PE... The conditioning was really tough for me considering I seriously lacked exercise... but it's a good thing I guess, since now I can actually do something physical. I'll try to keep up with the routine, it has some good rewards in the end.

What else? Ah, I'll be coming back to Malaysia for a few days, probably the 4th till the 8th Dec. I'll be flying to Melbourne on the 8th, meaning I won't be spending all that much time in Malaysia. I'll head back to Malaysia on the 19th, and come back down to Singapore probably on the 23rd. For the first time I will spend Christmas in Singapore, it's supposed to be REALLY interesting. I think I'll find out for myself.

Ok, I don't really have all that much to update now. Muscles are still acheing... maybe I should lie down a bit... I still plan on going to the gym tomorrow...

Oh yea, and DO support me... ^^ *Points up*

Another day... with another test... *sigh*

Past few days I've been studying a lot... so much that I surprise even myself. I covered quite a lot I think, but I just pray that I remember and can recall all that I've read.

I think I really like Blogger(TM). They have a good integrated marketing strategy with Google(TM). I just signed up for Google Ad-Sense. It's an advertising program which COULD generate revenue if people actually visit my site and check out their ads or use the search box. I'm looking for support from everyone here since I realise a lot more people than the measely 3-4 I expected actually visit my blog. But I also realise they don't do it that often. So I now encourage all of you to do it. It might help me generate some income. ^_^

Life is pretty much on the uphill. Studying is the word to describe the scene in hall and uni now. With exams looming, it's no wonder everyone is preparing for that. I guess all of us need to catch up on work.

Last night was Legacies, a formal dinner for Alumnis. As quoted from Master, "The Hall's most informal formal dinner." The alumnis came down and we all sort of had some chats with them. And PRAISE THE LORD, His favour must have been upon me that night. As band MM, the current state of equipment leaves much to be desired. I put this forth to Justice Tan and viola, the alumni agreed to financiall support an overhaul. I'm looking at four brand new guitars, a new amp, and drum skins. Total cost about S$3400!!! Talk about walking in God's favour. ^_^

Ok, I shoudln't write quite so much now... got an exam in 3 hours... >.<

Oh, on a side note, we finally managed to finished WINTERMAUL! *phew* ^_^

That's all for now. I think I'll head back to Malaysia for 2-3 days before I go off to Australia. Till next post!

I think I'm a little lost. I don't really see all that much to look forward to anymore. I suppose I always get a surge when I do something new. Mundane stuff DO suit me since I can be quite repetitive, but new things give you the urge to strive and improve at a much faster rate... no matter what it is.

I've done my term paper, but I intend to redo it since it's not exactly a good one IMHO. By suggestion from my tutor, I've decided to do one on concert itself. So my term paper would be a critique on the plot for "Poppy". That should be interesting and easy since I know the story well and it's very close to my heart... at least closer than Sherlock Holmes. ^_^

I can't really write all that much. Band is progressing well, but I have a few deadlines such as JAM-X to meet. Today is band's first performance. I hope that everyone does well. God help me meet all that I need to accomplish so that I can continue to be a good example for you.

I don't really have all that much to write. If I did, it should be on my term paper. ^_^ So that's all for now.

Concert is over! Personally think it was a GREAT one. I definitely felt that everyone, and I mean EVERYONE put in their best and the result was good. Everyone was happy and I'm proud to say that even I am, albeit tired. I can't wait to get my hands on the CD. Poppy, I'll definitely miss you!

My mother came down for the show. I didn't have a lot of time to spend with her while she was down though; there were practices and I had to be there to prepare for the actual performance. Nontheless, I spent the whold of Sunday with her. I really do appreciate her.

Back to work. I have a lab today due Sunday. Serpentine (or rather snake to those Nokia™ users). Hopefully it isn't too taxing. Also, I have a CS1231X test this Saturday. Additionally, recording for Poppy Soundtrack starts this week, Band meeting this Thursday (I can't find my book with my notes! Need it for meeting!), Concert debrief tonight, Mid Autumn Festivel tomorrow night, PLUS all my tutorials... And I thought I could get at least a week's rest. >.<

First things first, I should get my tutorials done. Hoping to get Quy to teach me CS1231X this week. I'll search for my book tonight at debrief. Hopefully band matters can be settled by Thursday. God give me strength!

The comments on this post I'd like to reserve for concert. Feedback or anything about Poppy can be placed here. To all who watched the show, I hope you liked it as much as we did putting it up for you. Cheers!

It's been a pretty hectic week. After the full comm hall run on Thursday, we were all on a high. The run was good. It was the best performance we've had. We all felt it. That was really good. However, things weren't as good on Friday. I think we all felt it. Why can't we maintain the high? I guess that's something we all have to work on.

Went to Little India today, and had nothern indian food. It was pretty good actually. I think the company was good too. All seniors... except Moritz. In any case, I think the food was worth the price! I might just go there again. It's not expensive, only about S$7 or so for a pretty decent meal.

Over the past few days, I've been doing a lot of concert related stuff. I guess that's really the highlight these few days. Luckily I still keep up with all tutorials. Tests aren't all that bad either.

The scholarship I received (read previous post) requires me to share the 'joy and pride of receiving it' to my school. I personally wouldn't mind, but the empty spaces are so ambiguous that I do not know for sure how to fill it in. It's really irritating because I'm not sure whether or not I'll fill it according to what is required.

There isn't really anything else going on that is all that interesting, except maybe that my lecturer is interested in coming for concert. I'll probably reserve two seats for him, but he has yet to get back to me on whether or not he'll need them. Really exciting week ahead! God give me strength!
