2008 and recent happenings

Dear Chibi,

Well 2008 is here! Happy New Year to everyone! I’ve been rather occupied since NYE so I haven’t gotten around to write a post till now.

First of all, I spent New Years Eve with COFA friends at Blue Point with a spectacular view of the 9 and 12 o’clock fireworks =) It was a good thing I was able to leave work earlier that day to meet up with everyone around 3-4pm where we had a picnic. We played some games, took silly photos (fascinated by Jacky’s smile-shutter-thing) and munched on food. I love junk food, especially the seaweed paper, lol. The place end up getting really packed which is expected.. and so the queues for the portable bathrooms (especially the female ones) were extremely long… oh boy. I don’t understand why it takes sooo long sometimes… there’s 4 cubicles in a portable.. all 4 were occupied and no one came out for about 7 minutes.. and there’s continuously about 20 people waiting in the line. Then you look at the line for the guys and become.. speechless.. lol. Anyway, Ray brought along sparklers and glow sticks which we played with during the night before the 12 o’clock fireworks. The 9 o’clock ones turned out better than expected but the 12 one is always the best! I was in awe ^_^

Afterwards we went to crash at MZ’s place which was rather amusing..lol.. I got home at 9am the next day and just slept till about 3pm when I was woken up by some family friends who came over for a bit. Later that evening Jacky came over to have dinner with us and since then… I’ve been doing graphic design work everyday. Next Friday the Monastery Tuition classes commence for 2008 which means I’ll be getting a new bunch of Year 11 Economic students! Let’s see how that goes..

Around Xmas last year I’ve started re-watching Sailor Moon’s 4th Season- SuperS. In the Sailor Moon community, it is a generally agreed that SuperS is possibly the worst season of the Sailor Moon anime. I admit, I previously thought it was a lot more inferior to the much more amazing seasons like R, Super and Stars. However, my mind has changed watching the season today as oppose to when I did back in High School. I really enjoyed it. It’s still not as great compared to the other seasons, but it’s far from horrible or boring. There’s some really deep episodes and the characterization of the villains is incredibly well done. After I finish off the SuperS season, I’m going to rewatch the R season in Japanese. Looking forward to it- in my opinion, it is still one of the best anime series =)

Recently I’ve started a few challenges (refer to previous post)- and I must say the ‘study anatomy‘ one kinda flopped! I didn’t expect to be working this many days suddenly, and as a result- work has left me feeling tired during the few hours I do have left in the evening before sleeping early again for the next day :S I’m still rethinking about how to fit into my schedule..

The drinking water one is working HALF well. lol Ok, so I’m actually getting into the habit of drinking more water and no longer get this ‘sick’ feeling after drinking it. All seems well, right? Well.. there’s “side effects” to this… I’ve been needing to go to the bathroom almost every 10-15minutes! That’s a bit too much which gets annoying, and looks awfully weird at work! What would you think if your work colleague keeps going to the bathroom every 15 minutes? o.o I’m not sure what I can do about this… these days drinking water, I’ve been feeling extra hungry too! I eat a lot more than I use to, and thus..gaining a bit of weight XD Why is there so many costs to drinking more water, which is supposedly healthy? Again, I’m still revising what I should do.
Let’s see… a new year comes with new resolutions, right? I haven’t thought much about it yet, but here are some possibilities of what I might get myself into:

– Creating my own webmanga for fun. This will require a lot of learning, planning and work, but I think it could be fun.

– Working on a flash game in collaboration with my Bro- he’ll do the programming and I’ll be doing all the visuals.
Again, no promises, they’ve just been flying around my head lately.. I have not put much thought into it yet XD

I just got a call from Helen this morning while tutoring about hanging at her place this arvo, so I guess I’m off! Talk to you soon =)
