A little conversation with the taxi uncle
levonlau
 Because the taxi uncle last minute say NETS cannot use, I had to call my dad to bring down the money to help me pay (coz i'm a poor kid who can't afford taxi fare from office to home)

To eliminate the silence (or maybe some other reasons) the taxi uncle came up with a conversation. But most of the time I kept the convo going. It's in mandarin though.

Uncle: You got smoke?
Me: Nope.
Uncle: Good good, don't smoke.

*pause*

Me: But most of my friends smoke though.

Uncle. Oh. Then you never smoke?
Me: No lah. I see them smoke only.
Uncle: Good. good.

*pause*

Me: the reason is because it's too expensive.
Uncle: Oh.

*pause*

Uncle: I go outside smoke awhile.
Me: orh okay.
Uncle: Wanna smoke?
Me: No. -_-

lmao. He says it's good that I'm not smoking but he asked me if I want one. lame.

Crying out loud
levonlau
 When you were a toddler, you cry to your parents when you tripped over an obstacle.

When you were a teenager, you cry to your friends when you faced an obstacle.

When you are an adult, you cry to your husband when you are overwhelmed by an obstacle.

But what if you are the husband?

Too bad, you have to overcome it.

lmao, so bored that I'm doing this

and someone strongly recommends that I update this 99% dead blog. I shall share with every lucky one of you what I have browsed over the net!

This is teh legendary assumption song.

Actually, this song has no meaning, unless your mind watches this and run all over the place. It makes you ASSUME what has happened! I think an alternative title for this would the "The Test of Purity"!

Well, I expect nothing less from you guys too. Don't say something like "What's up with the shaking fist?" or "What's wrong with rubbing eyes and sucking candies which is so tasty?"

lol. and btw, it suitable for everyone. (expect the vulgarity from the loading screen which is "FUCK" "YOU" & "BITCH")

Animals and Humans
levonlau
I was stoning and I suddenly thought about animals, about how they feel to certain things that we do.

First thing that I wondered was about Boredom. Do animals get bored? I mean, esspecially pets that we own, we're definitely not spending 24 hours a day with them, how they are feeling and thinking when we are not with them? I've friends who keep dogs as pets, and they really do seem excited when they see guests into their house, and will certainly play with us (provided if they are not angry dogs). But what happens when their owners are out, and no one is at home? They would just stay in their cage, stoning like we teenagers always do, for hours. How are they feeling? Bored? Maybe sad and craves for freedom? Why not put ourselves in their shoes? It would feel like a prison, just with a kind warden(if you are a kind owner), and sometime visitors comes and play with you.

Hamsters too, although they are a little more fortunate by having a wheel to run around. They eat, then sleep, then maybe run on the wheel for a round or 2, then goes back to sleep. Doesn't these everyday routines bores them? I know we humans might be doing the same thing everyday, but what they are doing, isn't just having a treadmill in a prison?

Fishes are worst, they are just swimming around in a mini tank, circling around for 24 hours a day, I really wonder how are they feeling too. Most fishes are even kept alone, like fighting fishes. Are fighting fishes really that anti-social?

There are also pets without owners. Animals in zoo might have been better, but I have seen endangered animals become exhibited in shopping centres. I remembered that there were iguanas, snakes, and white porcupines. Iguana and snakes are cold-blooded creatures, and they really do not show their expression, so I don't know what they are thinking or feeling. But this poor little porcupine is being harassed and you can't help but feel sorry for him. This little porcupine was totally shocked from the new surroundings, being in an urban environment and have you bodies touched and played by things(humans) you've never seen before. Like "WTF where am I, whats was this cold environment(aircon), and who are these monsters around me poking me!?" It was trembling with fear and squeaking when someone carried it. But they just laughed and continued playing with it. Yes they are not harming the poor porcupine physically, but I'm not so sure if he is harmed mentally.

Some actions that humans does to these poor animal makes me think about their feelings too. Humans definitely feel fun playing with them, but are you sure you are not forcing them to play? I saw a tradition from another country over the news, where they trap horses in a stadium, and people has to catch them and cut their hair(or fur) off their back or tails for protection against evil of some sort. The newcaster said that "the horses are not harmed in any way and released after the event". Are they really not harmed? Yes I know they are not harmed physically, but how about mentality? I see those horses panicked and running away from the human equipped with sharp objects. They were definitely scared. Imagine having yourself kidnapped by aliens and they shave the hell outta you. You were not harmed, but will you like that? I definitely do not think so. What do you think might have happened the horses are being released, they might collapse from the shock of being kidnapped, or being mock by other horses. "HAHAHA, you botak now. Ugly shit-horse." Maybe later they emo and kill themselves(lol sorry abit out of point).

Killing and eating chickens might not be serious(thats ecosystem of eating and being eaten), but harming them mentality should be a no-no too. This makes me wonder about sharks. I'm sure you know how they kill sharks. Fish them up, cut away their fins, and throw them back to the sea. How cruel is that, having their only have of transport cut away, thrown back and wait for miracle to happen. How about thinking having your limbs chopped off, and then leave you on the streets. You might survive while not having limbs, but I might think it would be better off for me to die.

Very belated Father's Day. lol.
levonlau
Today I woke up at 12pm. I was told and wanted to go Ming's house for a Wii party, but I haven't bathe, and they are meeting at 12.30pm at Yishun MRT station. So, I've decided not to go. It's a little sad, Mario Kart and DDR sounds fun =S. Damn, should have made an alarm.

Anyway, it was quite fortunate that I didn't go, as my family had a very belated Father Day's celebration. Yes I know we are 2 weeks late lol. The celebration was quite simple, we went to Pizza Hut at Tampines Mall.

Upon reaching Pizza Hut, I swear that Pizza Hut is one of the noisiest restaurant in Singapore. Kids screaming, crying, people chatting loudly. Even the staffs were shouting at each other(to communicate in the midst of chaos). Oh my god it's like a war in a restaurant. We proceed to order our food. First food that came was the 2 bowls of soup. The soup is like, half of the bowl? Now I get it why they stopped allowing self-service for soup. Next was the salad. NOW I really get it why they stopped allowing self-service for both salad and soup. What the heck my dad can get triple the size of the salad they served. There's no thousand island dressing that my dad craves too. The spagetti came next and it also looked "downsized". What happened to the quantity of Pizza Hut? I don't sense the upgrade of quality, all I sensed is the downsize of quantity and the upsize of the prices. They even forgot our Hut's Platter(an appitiser) and served it last.

Maybe I should think twice about going to Pizza Hut for dinner next time.

Me, myself, Ghimsiang(Kimsiang) and Huifen
levonlau
I know we have alot of connections in our lives, but can something be this coincident? (Okay, maybe not so coincident, but quite funny lol.)

When I was Secondary Three, I know this friend, whose name is Ghimsiang, and we were good friends ever since. Ghimsiang, together with Kahray, introduced me to the game World of Warcraft and we were playing happily ever since. I created a Undead Warlock named Valisathas(male), Kahray created a Troll Warrior(shemale), and Ghimsiang created a Blood Elf Priest named Huifen(female). Huifen is a cute little Blood Elf who has made almost everyone in the guild believed that the real player behind Huifen is a cute looking girl, which isn't.

So how did this name "Huifen" came to Ghimsiang mind? One day, Ghimsiang was approached by a girl (whom he said wasn't chio) who was doing some charity for the needy people. Ghimsiang saw her name-tag, which was "Huifen" and he decided to use it for his cute little Blood Elf character in World of Warcraft. Althought it's a bit random, but that's how that name came about.

There was a time, Kahray and I went to have dinner at KFC, and we went to order some food. As usual, I order Zinger student meal. Kahray, on the other hand, didn't order anything, because he saw the name-tag of the girl at the counter - "Huifen". He laughed and walk away before he ordered anything. It must have been weird for Huifen in KFC. Imagine you're a person working in KFC and serve other people when...

You: Hi, welcome to KFC. May I have your order please?
Customer: *Looks at you*
Customer: *Laughs and walks away*

I suppose you'll be having tonnes of question marks on the top of your head and be wondering "Is there something on my face, or what?"

Today, I had my french tutorial. I have a classmate named Kimsiang - different person, different name, but with the same pronounciation. And this Kimsiang is sitting beside me too. I have another classmate named Huifen - different person, same name, same spelling, same pronouciation. And I partnered with her today for some oral practises. Oral practises I mean practising speaking french, mind you.

Now I have know 3 Huifens, 2 Ghimsiangs(Kim), 1 Kahray.

So, I have classmates named Kimsiang and Huifen. I also know another Ghimsiang who has been posing as Huifen for a year now. But this Kimsiang and Ghimsiang has no connections with each other, and this Huifen and that Huifen has no connections too. However, this Ghimsiang has connection with this Huifen but not that Huifen. And Kimsiang has connection with agljnvdalakmvavmad...?

I'm confused.

Results of the Audition
levonlau

Looks like TP Band doesn't want me, my name wasn't listed in the results.

I suppose this is both a good news and bad news for me, at least I don't have to go home late after every Band practices and I'll have plenty of time for myself. Bad news is that I won't be able to continue learning music for free, and my idea of going to practise on their drums for my drumming lessons is not going to come true.

Now they are making me wonder why I wasn't chosen. Was it because I am unable to attend practicses on Fridays, or my skills suck that they doesn't want me anymore? )=

But luckily, all of the people that I know wasn't chosen by the TP Band. This seems to be good news that I didn't got it, or it would have been suck to attend practices alone.

3 cheers for optimism!


Audition for TP's Band
levonlau

School has started since last week. All was fine and normal, but I've decided to do something a little different, that is to join Band for CCA.

Two days ago (which is monday) , Baochuan, Devon and I went for the trial for the Band. It seems like the Band I was in Punggol Secondary, where we warm up, sectionals, then combine. Well I suppose there's no other way of having band practices lol. There was but one little different: TP band is bigger than Punggol Band (obviously) , and Trombone is a little far from the conductor, thus I can't really hear what he is talking. The conductor of TP Band(Mr Tan) was the teacher of my Punggol band conductor(Miss Ten) lol, but I still prefer Miss Ten. Maybe it's because I'm used to the way Miss Ten conducts, but the way Mr Tan conducts is... a little hard to understand. I'm having hard time reading scores too! Damn, I guess this is what happens when I didn't play my instrument for too long. Luckily I was able to get the feel of playing high notes lol.

Today was the audition, but it was quite messed up. Sections by sections have to get in for interview (chit chat with them) and audition (play for them to listen). Here's what fucked up: We had to wait and wait and wait and wait and wait for our turn to come. The audition was suppose to start at 6.30pm, but I went at 7pm, and I was glad I did, because I had to wait until 9pm before it was my turn for the interview and audition. Wow, I can't believe I had 2 hours of warm-up for the auditions.

Interview - 

They just go through my particulars and asked me some questions. Like how I felt about TP Band, how I felt about the seniors in my section, how was my previous school band, what I did as a Drum Major in my previous band, blah blah blah... Although the interview was fine, but I somehow hope the interview would be in chinese instead of english. 

Audition - 

Here comes the best part, the audition to play in front of the Band president, Sectional Leader, and the Conductor. We started with Eb Major, then Bb, then F, and Eb May(again), but with triplets! I know I could play it, but I was too nervous. Although the quality of my sound is good, my tongueing was unclear. My sight-reading sucks too, even though it was an easy one. Damn, I should have control to calm myself more.

FInally it was all over. My sectional leader told me there are 3 vacancies for trombone, but 4 turned up for the audition. This means that 3 out of 4 ppl will get in, which is 75%. But since I hope to get in with Devon together, it seems that the chance is quite slim lol.

But I thought it was fortunate as a trombonist, 'coz there are 7 trumpeters and 11 french horn player of only 3 vacancies each. They are having even slimmer chance lol.

I hope all goes well for us.
