So today..I woke up late..I had brunch with my daddy (Who just came home from Thailand) and then we came home and I spent the rest of the day watching tv, doing work, watching videos on YouTube and reading before I went for cheer..
But okay if I'm completely honest, I was thiiiiis close to going out of my mind coz I had nothing to do..Haha! Yes la..I'm contradicting myself..Dont judge me! When I'm busy..I complain..When I'm not busy..I ALSO complain! I need to find the perfect balance lah okay!
Cheer practice today was super fun..We did a 2 1/2 high and I took turns being second layer and top layer..It's actually pretty easy..Lol..Not as difficult as it looks..Andddd..My liberty extensions are getting betterr!! For those of you who've seen me fly..Liberties are probably my weakest stunt (My strongest is probably my basket toss) coz I don't lock fast enough..To quote Li Yen "It takes you so long to lock! You look like a flag pole!" BUT! I always stick it!! :D Hahahaha! I'm so happy..It took me awhile to get the hang of things again coz of my ankle and all the lack of practice..But everything is pretty much back to normal so I'm happyy!
Oh and I don't know why in my last post the spacing of my words was retarded..I don't know about you but it was driving me freaking crazy coz I'm super obssessive! I kept trying to fix it but it would't fix so after awhile I was like "Aaaargh!! FINE!!"
No pictures/videos this time coz I'm lazy..Haha! :P

Check out the Freeze For World Earth Day video! You can see my daddy. Bryan and I from 0.34-0.39..The camera missed my mum though..She was standing next to Bryan so the guy in front of her was blocking..I wanna take part in another one!! Lol..
Anyways! I shouldn't be here because I have so much work to do and I want my weekend to be free so I'm trying to finish all my work by tonight.. :D If I am able to do this, it would be a near miracle because I am the world's No1 Procrastinator and I am a huge believer in leaving things to do the last minute! (Like finishing my homework 5 minutes before class!)
College is a real bitch..But alot of people say that uni is MUCH easier and much more fun..Yet another reason for me to eagerly anticipate the end of IB (DON'T DO IB!! IT RUINS LIVES!!) And no, I'm not joking about the whole IB thing..It really does ruin lives..
Oh and the Singapore trip is off coz of reasons I will not bother to explain.. :( Was looking so forward to it! But on the bright side, I won't be missing cheer! :D
Okay! Work to be done! Brain cells to be killed! :)

Anyways! My funny story! It's actually not very funny and I can't decide whether or not I should blog about it but since I said I would, I'm will lah!
Yesterday, we (My family, Aaron and Uncle Richard) went out for dinner with these Japanese people who are..I actually don't know who they are..But I kinda got the impression that they're important people in racing in Japan..And I just spoke to Bryan..Apparently they can decide the future of a racing driver because they decide who gets into this Toyota driver program or something..ANYWAYS! They're here because Bryan will be going to Japan to race in May (Which means I won't be here for my 18th birthday! :() so they were talking to him about Japan and all and how it's going to be really good competition blah blah blah..Then they asked if I would be going to Japan and my dad said yes..And then the two of them start looking at me and talking in Japanese and then one of them says "Oh, this is very bad..She looks like a Japanese actress and now all the boys won't be able to focus!" And ohmygod I was a little embarrassed I didn't know how to react (In front of my dad!!) And then Uncle Richard and my dad was like "Oh, when we were in Dubai, the Japanese boys kept coming to her and taking pictures with her and every time they passed me (my dad) they would bow!" And then they asked me the name of the guy who kept coming to take pictures with me and in a tiny voice I was like "Takamoto" (Who is actually quite cute!) which is the guy they were all talking about earlier coz he's Japan's top driver at the moment and he won the championship and something something la..And everyone laughs and the Japanese guy is like "Oh no, now Takamoto won't be able to focus on the race" and I'm like ohhhhmyyygodddd..
See..Told you it wasn't funny..It was funnier yesterday..But that was probably coz I was a lil embarrassed..And you know..Things are always funny when it's embarassing..And also coz it was a "had to be there moment" lah!
When we got into the car after dinner, my dad was like "Looks like you'll be getting even more attention in Japan than you did in Dubai" I was like "mmmm" Lol!
But I won't lie! I felt very flattered when they said those things..It's a compliment yeah? Who wouldn't feel good about receiving a compliment right? :)
But I can't wait to go to Japan (NOT because of the boys! Although I hear some of them are quite cute! Lol! But coz of the SHOPPING!! HAHAHAHAHAHA! :D)
And oh! I'm in a bit of a dilemma..You see..There's going to be this trip for all Sri KDU performers to Singapore this weekend to watch We Will Rock You, The Musical and I'm supposed to go..But if I go, it means I'll be missing TWO cheer practices (CHARM)..So should I go or should I not go? What say you?
Anyways! I need to go shower! It's 10 already and I still haven't showered! :p OR done any homework!!
If you would meet me half way,
It could be the same for you.

And secondly, as you all know, I didn't manage to take pictures during open day coz I was so busy..HOWEVER!! Leenna took some awesome pictures! So if you're interested in seeing them, go to her blog.. :) Thank you so so so much Leenna for taking pictures of my last open day!!
Anyways! Back to more recent news, I took part in the Freeze for World Earth Day which was held in Sunway Pyramid yesterday and it was an awesome experience..I don't even know how to describe it! I promise you that I'm trying REALLY hard to think of words that can describe how it felt but I'm drawing a blank..I just have to say that I really hope they have another one coz I would take part again without a moment's hesitation!
Not many pictures coz I was frozen (Lol!) but I did manage 3 pictures! (One of which I didn't take) There are many videos though! Go to YouTube and type in "Freeze for World Earth Day" and you can see what went down..
For those of you who are wondering, I froze in a walking positiong..Like mid-walk..My brother and mum took part too..My mum froze while putting on lip gloss and Bryan froze while taking a picture with his phone..There were so many people who came up with some REALLY good poses so go and check out the videos on YouTube! I'm in some of them too! I was wearing a black oversized t-shirt and blue trackies coz I went for the Freeze right after my CHARM practice..
Didn't manage to get a good picture of this but the first sign from the left says "President Bush, ratify the Kyoto Protocol NOW!" the second one says "Save our reefs! Be a responsible snorkeller! Ask me how!" the third one says "Plant more flowers & trees" and the the fourth one says "No shark's fin on dinner table!"
A truly amazing freeze! Don't know how he managed to stay like that for 4 minutes!! (I'm talking about the guy in orange of course!) I didn't take this picture btw..I stole it from the Facebook page! :p
Everyone after the freeze..When the four minutes was up, everyone just burst our cheering! Such an amazing atmosphere!
I have an amusing story to tell but it's late and I'm kinda tired so I'll blog tomorrow.. :)

Anyways! Here's the million and one things thats going on in my life right now..
Exams are over and our World Literature Essay 1 has been turned in so that's a huge load of our shoulders..But we've got out World Literature Essay 2 coming up next..Lol..Yes! It's a never-ending stream of work! Right now..I'm working on my Chem, Business, Math and Theatre IA on top of my regular assignments..IB is crazy..It really is..But I've come so far it would be stupid to give up now..So I figured I might as well give it my all coz I really and truly believe that I can do it..
Besides all this IB stuff I have to deal with, I'm performing for open day at school this Saturday..I'm performing for Stunners C3, CHARM, Cats, Black or White, IB Theatre and Red/Yellow/Blue/Green house cheer..Lol! I don't know lah how I'm going to do it but I've done it before (But it was only 3 last time! This time it's 6!!) So I (hope!) I can do it again! Lol..It's going to be madness! To whoever is interested in coming, the performances start at 11 and will go on until like 3 or 4..Open day at Sri KDU is always TONS of fun so you definitely won't regret coming! :)
And then this Sunday..I'm going to KLPac coz I've volunteered to help them out with this writing/directing workshop they're having..And I'm pretty sure I'll get Creative or Service hours for that.So it's killing two birds with one stone!
So yes..My weekend is JAM PACKED and my whole week has been CRAZY CRAZY with all the practices and rehearsals and assignments and honestly...I really don't know how I'm doing it..Lol!
Oh! And the Paramount modern dance competition was today and I have to say that all the practices were worth it..We totally killed it!! So we're all pretty happy now even though we're (Ying, Mei, Rah and I) walking around school looking like quadruplets..Lol..But now we have a new goal to work towards to! MID YEAR EXAMS!! If we don't do well for our MYE's..We don't get to compete for finals (If we get in the finals lah!)
So anyways! Here are some random pictures that I've taken during the past 2 weeks..I'm putting them up coz I don't want my blog to be boring coz it's all words words words..But what do you expect? I'm an IB student..An average essay is AT LEAST 1300 words!!
Ying took this for me coz she says I'm so pink!!
This was the day our World Literature Essay 1 was due so this is us making last minute changes..
Splits during Stunners All-girls team practice..
Shanni and I..
Haha! I don't know WHAT was going on here but it's a funny picture!!
Oh, and you know..I'm in school now and I can't log in to Facebook OR MSN but all the others can!! SO ANNOYING!!

I promise a proper post when I next have the time to breathe..
Oh, to be young and carefree again when all I had to worry about was whether I should eat the vanilla Cornetto or the chocolate Cornetto..
Growing up is so overrated!!
I miss watching tv/movies.. :(
Monday, April 7, 2008
I just want to say that I feel so overwhelmed at the moment and I just want to curl up in bed and sleep for the rest of the week..Month..Year..
IB is sucking the life out of me..
I feel so unsure..

And for those of you who are wondering, Bryan finished 7th but he was running consistently in 5th throughout the whole weekend but had a bad start in the finals..
Anyways! I'm not here to blog about all the minor details, if I was, I would've waited until tomorrow..I'm blogging now coz I'm angry..
I'm angry that my brother didn't get a fair chance this weekend..I'm angry that someone whom I thought loved my brother betrayed him..I'm angry that greed and success has compromised the morals of so many people..I'm angry that people have forgotten that it's not always about winning, but also what you learn from it..
I won't mention names and I won't make accusations coz I don't know who reads my blog but sometimes, I wonder what will happen to the world if everyone in the world was like some of the people whom we know at the go-kart track..The kind of people who would resort to ANYTHING just to win..
I wish that these people realised that cheating is not the answer and that cheating doesn't make you a better driver..If you win coz you cheat, then you don't really win..It's so difficult for me to watch my brother finish 7th when I know that he's good enough to finish 1st..It makes me so so angry and I wish I could do something about it..But the sad thing is, I can't..I can't change the way these people think..Coz to them, winning is everything..But what they don't realise is that in the long run, cheating will get you nowhere because you can't cheat for the rest of your life..And then, not only will you be losers, but you won't have your dignity either..It doesn't matter if you lose, but lose with dignity..
I'm so angry now that all the things I want to say won't come out right and there's so much bottled inside me and I cant get it out..It's just..You have no idea how difficult it is for me to watch Bryan finish badly..
Bryan..I know you probably won't read this but I want you and everyone else to know how proud I am of you and how everyone knows and acknowledges that you are a good driver..Whenever you lose, it feels like I have lost too which is why I get so angry whenever you don't win and why I'm so protective of you when you drive and why I shout at people when they don't know the meaning of a blue flag..But I have faith in the fact that you will make it in racing and you will make it without cheating..You will make it on hard work and talent..Coz if you made it any other way, I would not be proud of you the way I am now..
Love you baby bro!!
Promise to do a proper post about the race tomorrow with the rest of the pictures and everything.. :)
