Closer As It Is

This is probably my last post for the year. I just want to wish you readers a happy new year. I don’t really have a resolution – yet. I might take down my last year’s resolution and copy it on a new piece of paper and paste it back. At least it looks new. I still have a lot to do before the year ends, actually. This holiday is too short, don’t you think?

I’m now juggling between cleaning my room and enjoying what’s left of the holiday. I might not have time to do either but I’ll try. Damn this stupid procrastination.

Well, when the year comes to an end, you look forward to the year that’s arriving. And with that comes a new semester, for me. But that’s just one semester and I’m not quite enthusiastic about it because the courses aren’t interesting. I only have four math courses so I have a feeling I’ll have time to spare. Well, we’ll see about that.

Happy New Year 2009!

Warmest regards,

Hold The Clock

I really can’t believe it’s already near the end of the month. Where did time go? It’s just not enough for me. Well, even though I bore myself lazing around but I like the fact that I don’t have to think. I don’t have to know what day it is today or what the date is. Everyday is pretty much the same. Well, now that I think about it, it’s pretty sad isn’t it? Being busy with work is probably a better way to live.

Shely has a clock that has no where to hang. Usually she just placed the clock on top of the drawer, making it lean on the wall. But I repositioned it so that it’s higher up for clearer view. And this is how it looks like.

I made a clock holder out of the old teddy bear. Too bad the bear’s face is hidden. But it’s a perfect fit!

And today is Dong Zhi Jie, a Chinese festival. Here’s Stephen making tang yuan or glutinous rice balls.

Rob Attempt

I’m actually quite busy these days helping my mum around the house – actually more like around her business. The worker left so there’s not enough hand to do the job. So here I am and I can’t find a decent excuse to escape. What should I say? “I can’t, I’m busy taking a nap.” Lame. It definitely won’t work.

I did have a little spare time in my hands to go online once in a while and pick up the guitar now and then. And today I managed to sketch something. I’ve been wanting to sketch a portrait of Robert Pattinson (guy from Twilight) for a while now so I did and just finished minutes ago. BUT, I don’t know who the heck I just drew here. He looks so different. I guess I picked the wrong picture to sketch.

Rob Pattinson (apparently)

Here's What Happened

How’s the holiday so far? Paying off? I actually have not much to say because all I did was watch movies. Like day and night non-stop hours and hours of movies – series rather. I’m sure most of you are experiencing the same if you enjoy sticking to the TV. For the record, now it’s Monk, next week – Supernatural and the week after – CSI. They are already waiting in line for me.

Oh don’t think it’s just the movies. I’ve been reading too. Well, I try. I started Ed McBain’s The Pusher a couple of pages. Then I put it aside and forgot about it. When I came back days later, it was a different novel, New Moon, and I stopped after two chapters again. I’ll try again when I really feel like reading. Maybe after the holiday.

Out and About

My exam is finally over! I need TV, novel, internet and a guitar now. I just want to waste my time and laze around the house for the rest of the holiday. I really hope I don’t have any supplements coz I’m so not in the mood to study during the holiday.

Nina and I went out right after the exam and we bloated ourselves at Pizza Hut. It feels good to get out after the exam. We went around searching for gift bags after Nina bought a couple of gifts. And at this store this woman was so rude. Oh well, I’m not gonna talk about it coz I don’t want to ruin a good day =) But then at another store, the shop assistants were so friendly. They helped Nina decorate her gifts. Such friendly people are hard to come by. Oh, and I finally got myself the Twilight novel. Really makes me look forward to the holiday.

Nina munching on a pizza

I like this drink…float…whatever

What's left of the food. sorry you have to see this =D

Chaotic Paper

I watched the sky twice on Sunday and on Monday during the sunset. Apparently, a triangle of Jupiter, Venus and the moon could be seen during sunset. It’s called a planetary conjunction. It was quite spectacular because the stars were so bright. On the first night, the moon was further away from both stars and on the second it was closer. Well, if you missed it, don’t worry, you can still catch it in 2013. Lol.

Today I had my toughest paper yet. The only question I can solve was question one part one. For the rest of the paper, I just wasted my time scribbling God knows what. I was having a panic attack by the second hour. I couldn't do anything. I kept rereading the questions hoping the answers will jump out of the paper. There's a high chance I'm not gonna pass it. Sigh.
