Went to Wala Wala last night with Hairol with the intention of getting shitfaced after I got my exam results but instead, we got stuff to the max with pizzas…
Ahhh… Finally a DBS credit card that is not useless. Apparently, DBS and/or AMEX has a promotion with some bars (Wala included) for 1-for-1 on beers, housepours (including soda mixers), pizzas and pastas. Schweet!
So we ordered a Seafood Mariana pizza and a Garlic Chicken pizza. and instead of getting high on alcohol, we almost got sick from all those pizzas.

And did I mentioned that The Unxpected were playing yesterday?
They started off with Keane’s “Everybody’s Changing” and they were awesom, right from the begining. They played a couple of covers and also some of their own songs. And all I could say is that they sound great live. On the second set, they got a birthday boy up to the stage and attempted to get him drunk and recite the “She sells seashells…” tonguetwister. They also introduced a permutation of the tonguetwiste: “She sells cheese pies at the cheese store”. What tonguetwister will you get? Its up to your own imagination.

News

Good news and bad news…

First the good news.
Whew… After worrying for a quite a while and craming like crazy for my exams, I managed to clear my current semester.

Bad news?
My CAP has dropped to quite low, thanks to Maths and Electrical Engineering… Not rock bottom yet, but at 3.06, I can’t even fit into a honours classification…

Anyway… A friend of mine whose in the same course as me is trying to find out if we can transfer to a three-year course… And judging by how things are going… Hopefully we can…

Its been 2 weeks since I’ve re-enlisted and I haven’t blog about it yet, so here goes…

As what Guo Wei had said, I was posted to S2 branch and was quite surprised to see a familiar face there, 1SG Yeap. Dunno why everyone don’t quite like him but to me, he’s quite a nice guy. Just yesterday, he treated us to KFC, w00t

In terms of office space and manpower, the S2 branch is quite small. Two officers, a couple of Int Specs and an Int Clerk (excluding me… I’m just an extra there). Quite a nice place to be at, the people are great and the workload ain’t too much (well… at least for me =P). The only bad thing to be posted to S2 branch was that they’ve been assigned to plan a NDP event, the Dynamic Defense Display, for the Army side. So with my diploma and undergrad studies in a computing related field, I’ve been assigned to do some map drawing on the laptop in the branch. Sometimes I do feel I’m back in Support Coy… With all the cancelled and recalled night’s out due to the NDP event.

Went to the NDP site twice during the past weeks and all I can say is that the seating area is really small… And its kind of weird with all the constructions going on at the background of the floating platform. Think I’m gonna go back there again on the coming Wednesday for the rehearsal. So close to civilisation and yet so far…

If Singapore was still a crown colony, it would be On Her Majesty’s Service, which sounds nicer… But I digress…

Anyway, gotta re-enlist tomorrow… Going back to 3 SIR (Silent and Effective!) to serve out the remaining of my NS liability. Heard from Guo Wei that it’ll be stay-in and that I’ll be posted to S2 branch. To do what you ask. I’m thinking I’ll be there pushing papers, but then again, I might be wrong and they might get me to go chiong sua… To milk me for all I’m worth… (In the sense of paying me combat allowance…)

And because over a year ago, some idiots posted some videos and pictures of army camps taken from their cameraphones on the internet. The SAF, or more specifically, the MSD (I think), decided to come down hard on cameraphones… And I, on the hand, have hunt for a non-camera phone to book-in into camp… Bummer… Bought a Motorola W220 today, after searching high and low to borrow from friends and relatives…

Quite a nice phone, simple and no frills. Very loud, and I do mean very, ringtone also. Still can’t quite get used to the small screen though… Since all my previous phones have quite a big screen… Well… High resolution to be precise.

Exam’s Over!

Finally, the exams are over. My first year in NUS has come to an end. Quite a busy semester, as compared to the last sem… With all the lab and assignment I had in this semester and also I’ve taken mainly core modules this sem… Well… I forsee that I’ll be getting busier as I take higher level modules…

Anyway, its the holidays! A whole three months of it! But it’ll be like a week or so of holiday for me… Since I have resume my NS obligation… Stinking NS…
