cool. according to the isp, i was ranked 92 in the cohort by getting a B for GP during last year's block tests. but that was msyang. ever since we got auggie as our GP teacher this year, my ranking dropped to 800 plus (i forgot the exact ranking) by getting an S for GP in this year's block tests! i think our clss made a clean sweep of the bottom few positions in GP, thanks to our dearest auggie and wilks :) oh wow. tell me, who on earth can score below 20 out of 50 for both compre and compo?! we can! cos we have cool teachers who enjoy failing sudents :)
used to be that passing GP (that means 50/100) is like: OMG..E..so lousy =X but nowadays passing his GP is like: OMGOMGOMG u get E leh! ur english must be damn zai! come to think of it, i haven passed a single GP paper this year!
omg everybody pls go and read daoteng's entry about our dearest gp teacher and our gp marks. since when has his english standard escalated to such height?! amazing! otherwise known as awe-inspiring, impressive, august (u see, he's called auggie for a reason)..
lep orientation turned out better than i expected. lucky hany went with me..if not i think i would have died of boredom..imagine going to esplanade for the third time in five amazing races..
there was this prc junior in our group called "sun lin feng"! omg exactly the 林 and the 峰 can! den throughout the amazing race he was lagging behind his grp..and being the group leaders, hany and i were like "林峰，林峰，快点！" and whenever we lost him we were like "eh 林峰leh?" omg super weird -.-
ytd morning was also the nus chinese research presentation. pheww..didnt screw up. and damn it! i dunno why my stupid memory card got formatted and i lost all the pics we took in the morning! including the few pics with 403ers! ugh pissed me like mad.
ok, allow me a moment of highness by posting these pics up to beuatify my blog a little..i couldn't resist.
the gentlemanly smile (: (i realise he looks best at this angle!)
after serving for 1 whole year, i've finally stepped down from the asean comm.
when i received the token of appreciation frm miss lim last Sunday, there was this stream of emptiness that surged through the inside of me. esp after arthya came over and we talked, and he told me how he's starting to miss us only after the last meeting.
i know i can finally stop going for meeting on a terribly lethargic sunday afternoon at an unholy time of 2pm in an extremely unconducive environment. but i also know i wont be seeing these ppl anymore, these fellow asean scholars, these "buaya"s and "buayi"s (ok inside joke). yes, i dread all the meetings, having to make our way down to esplanade, to acjc, to rjc, to grand copthorne... but these are also things that i would never ever have believed i could accomplish, and will never forget.
even though there were slacking members, delays in information flowdown etc etc, there's something very important that i got out of this whole thing: the fruit of success will only taste sweet when u have contributed with all ur heart. looking back, i think i did. seeing the success of asean night fever, asean dance.. at least i can proudly declare: i've given my best.
there's also something that hits me deeply: our previous lack of interaction with other scholars (and i mean other than the pee are sees of course). it only occurred to me that it's important for us (the school-based scholars) to venture out of our social circle and really make ourselves part of this Asean family after i became part of it. we are no PRCs, no hongkongers. we are the Asean-ners of a unique quality that is not found in others: endless enthusiasm running in our blood! more commonly known as rahrah-ness by the indons lol.
thanks to funny ppl like johnathan! adrian! ryan! (who claims that i CRUSH him -.- yeayeayea) junhow! singwei! irma etc..who have made my term there much more enjoyable! i think i wouldnt have survived meetings without these ppl. somehow the guys are easier to talk to/work with among this bunch of ppl.
ohohoh! i found scandals in the group! only like after a year!? laggggg. but im secretly hoping it works out..it's kinda fun seeing ppl u know tgt. cos it's like u sort of witness and participate in the whole process of them getting to know each other to being closer and eventually being in a relationship? ok i have a weird liking. wow digress.
