The Darker side of us...

Secrets.. we are always surrounded by lies, deceit or mysteries, we cannot all be always angelic munchkins because... we're human. We make all kinds of mistakes, this is our way of learning and growing. However though, no matter how many lies we've woven around ourselves and others, they will eventually be exposed.

Example from a Personal Experience:
- A stranger from California called my house phone today, asking whether we were going to pay for an item that a certain person had bid on ebay. Problem: That person only happens to be 13 years old...
- When asked about ebay, the person vehemently denied any interaction with the bidding site maintaining his innocence
- Despite his plea of innocence, I called the seller back and found out that the seller has all of our personal information, home phone, house address etc... This made me realise that, it must be a miraculous coincidence or that someone has been 'vehemently LYING'
- Eventually all was exposed, in actual fact he does have connection with the ebay site AND that he has been doing 'dirty work.' Now that person has to face retribution
- As we reflect back on the day's events, we realise that every action has a meaning behind it... and the meaning of this person's actions have finally come to light.. (e.g. opening a package, that did NOT belong to him, when we had told him that he was not allowed to do that)
- Lesson to be learned: We all have to lie at times, but we have to remember that, our lies will eventually be exposed for retribution.

This will be an experience for the person that I know, and I do hope that he has learned his lesson well. As for me, I know that I have my deep and dark secrets as well, and I know that someday I will face my own consequences.

So for any readers (which I do doubt that there are any lols..) there are good lies and bad lies, good truths and bad truths... but remember that with every action there's a consequence.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to ALL THE MUMS in the world!
Hope we little kiddies pampered our mothers today because they deserve it
Without them we would not be here reading/blogging this post.

HAPPY SUMMER HOLIDAYS!!!

HAVE A WONDERFUL, HAPPY AND SAFE SUMMER HOLIDAY EVERYONE!!!

ENJOY THESE MOMENTS WHILE THEY LAST

AND OF COURSE... DON'T FORGET TO FLASH THOSE CAMERAS... BECAUSE WHO KNOWS WHAT YOU WILL CAPTURE...

TAKE CARE, BE READY TO TELL MANY STORIES WHEN WE COME BACK!!!

Note: Remember to wear your hat, sunglasses and sunscreen whilst outdoors (especially after noon)... High UV rays during these times so you'd better take care of your skin!!! And the sunnies to prevent cataracts

Take care of yourself, and your body will take care of you!

REMEMBER: SLIP, SLOP & SLAP (though I think this is getting old now...)

Making a Comeback...

Wow... tis been awhile since I've last posted something here, but the good news is... EXAMS ARE FINALLY OVER so everyone gets to sit back, relax and enjoy the heatwave that summer brings!!! yippie!

Phew.. a fair few things has happened between those exam days and now.. Most of the days were filled with action packed library sessions, though you get distracted half the time with all the food that is layed out before you..

Here are a few priceless memorabilia with my mates... all were DILIGENTLY procrastinating... *giggles*

WOWing

















Watching IRON MAN










ME (not shown) --> Eating

Hehe.. you can see our beloved 'Wendy's' there (which is officially my "exam" lunchstop).. twas a very delicious meal indeed (I remember having salad that day.. ahh.. I've digressed)

Back on track.. We've gone swimming a couple of times again.. and our swimming buddy has finally learned how to stay afloat for a few more seconds!!! Woohooo!! A HUMUNGO congratulations for his achievements.. But no matter what, you still look like a goofball hahah..

Hrmm.. today was a nice sunny hot day.. however..

Moment of the day: Having a major brawl with the manager of Tofu Restaurant since they complained that we didn't tip them (I accidentally forgot)... They literally followed us to the car and demanded us!!! Sure I felt bad for not tipping them properly.. but the way they spoke to us and dealt with the issue was unbelievably RUDE and UNCOUTH that in the end they didn't get a tip and lost a few regular customers... >_<

I feel as if I’m having a tough week this week with all these issues happening… BUT behind every grey cloud there's a silver lining!!! (laughs at oneself.. gosh I can be soo dorky at times..) so I'll just stick my head up high and face the challenges ahead... BRING IT ON!

Anyways.. WELL DONE (again) to ALL EXAMINEES who have finally FINISHED their FINALS!!! The toils of our efforts (if we did put in any) will NOT go to waste!!! Good luck with your results and run around naked to celebrate the day!!! See you again next semester!

p.s. Don't forget your mother's day prezzies for THIS SUNDAY!!

The FINAL count down...


Today marked the end of one more exam, leaving with only 2 more!!! The count down is finally coming to a close.. (sigh of relief). Then of course, when it's all over, there's the prospect of results.. But that, at the moment, is too far down the track.. lets just stick to the present.. bleh~

Moment of the day: Swimming and trying to teach a certain someone to float.. Quite hilarious when he slowly started to sink like the Titanic.. *giggles* hahaha.. BUT as clich├ęd as it sounds.. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!!! (for now however, let us enjoy the adorable priceless moments of his efforts!!! ^_^)

Hoping that all examinees are feeling less pressured now due to the closing of the examination period... We can all have a breather and yell out HIP HIP HOORAY!!!

Breakie Time!


Another action packed, fun filled day at the library again!! The thrill of flipping pages, the screams of keyboards clicking away under fast and furious fingers. Brains moan as they try to digest the endless array of information.. Be careful not to lose that information on the way down to the examination room! It was literally a roller coaster ride into 'nerdsville'

Ahh.. what a day.. We shall do it again tomorrow!!!

Moment of the day: When a particular someone tried to do a martial arts 'kick' resulting in a strain of the leg and the cracking of stiff joints. Classification... PRICELESS
