Next Extinction: Blogs

[Quote of the post] Heard of the Golden Rule? The people with the gold make the rules.
[Song of the post] I Can Show You the World - Aladdin

The Age of the Blog has come and gone. A new type of public broadcasting has evolved: The Online Radio... or whatever it's called.

Take a look around. ZQ has killed his blog. Shaun and Cyberworm haven't posted in months. Neither has Bryan. Ellius hasn't blogged since last year. Jun Yi not in three weeks at least. All blogs. Killed by the tyranny of ignorance.

OK, I have no idea what I just said.

My blog doesn't seem to be dying. I have, like 238 visitors. Cool.

Ooh... just watched Aladdin two day ago. You just can't beat the classics. Ribon Williams makes the perfect genie, and the songs are brilliant. Anyone got Disney Soundtrack to lend me? No? Any magic lamps then? None too? Oh well...

Today's Honours Day was a waste of three hours. And I got fed up with the year director for getting all worked up with a little noise. I had been running up and down the school looking for the key, and what does he do?
"Class Chairmen have to stand if their CTs or PCTs are not here yet."

There was some guy who won seven awards. SEVEN! I bet he's going to take over the world or something when he grows up.

Sigh... tomorrow is another (boring) day. Founder's Day for ACS(I). Four hours in the Indoor Stadium listening to some old guys reminiscing about their childhood. Whoopee. And I have to be there earlier too, since I'm chairman...

Oh well... At least there's GEP Camp to look forward to in a week's time. We're going on a cruise, we're going on a cruise... I'm bunking with Kev Wong this time. I don't care.

Lalala... my birthday's in two weeks time! I can hardly wait. But yet, I feel a deep hole inside, when I think of the STUPID NPCC HIKE ON THE EXACT SAME DAY!!! Still, it's only in the morning. Luckily. And there's Math Enrichment Workshop after that too. Yippee!

OK... going to write TNN now... check it out on the forums!

Here comes the POSTman...

Because of the increasing barrage of complaints on my tagboard, I will post. Happy now?

Well, here's the week in brief (not underwear: it's brief not briefs).

I WON A GOLD AND SILVER MEDAL FOR SWIMMING! It's not me, so much as it is... ME! MUHAHAHA!!! I got gold for 100m Backstroke and silver for House Medley Relay. I'M A MEDAL WINNER! Oh yeah, go UE, it's your birthday, uh-huh...

I had my first NPCC Training on friday (missed the rest). I had a lot to catch up on, especially badges, promotions, drills... It was pretty slack, though. Hope it's like that the rest of the year...

Hsieh Wen lent me Generals and I have to say IT ROCKS! compared to Red Alert 2 (which is the only other RTS game I have). HW says that it's slow on his computer, but I have a 1 GB RAM! YEAH!

Two history assignments in a term... what is the world coming to... Mdm June Ng's work could be fun to do, if they were more interesting and creative... *hint hint*

Am starting on a new story called The New Naphtalians on the forums. Basically about all my classmates with superpowers fighting the evils of homework, donation drives and UYOs. I think I have started a trend, because I have at least 5 people who want to draw the character designs, 3 who want to draw a comic, and 3 who want to write a story based on the same characters and title but with different storyline. This never worked with Uncle Edna...

I looks like with the beginning of the forum, blogs have become yesterday's news... but I will continue to type until my last breath... or at least until I get REALLY bored and stop. But that's a different story.

I've got exams next week so I don't think I'll be posting much. And a GEP camp in 3 weeks time, so that's a blank post too. Have a nice For the Love of Mike Day!

Your Brain is 53.33% Female, 46.67% Male

Your brain is a healthy mix of male and female
You are both sensitive and savvy
Rational and reasonable, you tend to keep level headed
But you also tend to wear your heart on your sleeve

Oh my... at least I'm not as bad as Michael and Jun Yi... Haha, their brains are almost four-fifths female! Hahaha... But I think the questions are biased: the goody-goody answers would be put as female. That really bites.

Happy Chinese New Year! (Belated)

[Quote of the post] This year of the chicken, have something to crow about.
[Song of the post] Accidentally in Love - Counting Crows

Hi! I haven't posted in about 5 days, and since I don't like changint the dates on my posts, I have to say everything here.

I love Chinese New Year! It's not so much about the Hongbaos or the money, it more about the FOOD! OH YEAH! Prawn crackers, Love Letters, Pai Bang Kek, Sweets, more sweets, more love letters, I don't really like pineapple tarts so..., almond cookies, and much MUCH more! Yum yum.

Speaking about Hongbaos, I got quite a haul this year. Maybe it's just because I have more married cousins now, or maybe the bank kindly "lent" me a whole lot of cash... Just kidding.

OM today was a complete fiasco. I went late because I overslept. Wow. There's a first time for everything. Anyway, Isaac wasn't there, and Mr. Quek and DT was there, and luckily noone scolded me.

Oh yeah, watched Constantine yesterday. It was a cool show, with great effects, and the suspense was all placed in the right places... with a bus suddenly driving by gives excellent shock. I was sitting next to Kev Wong and he was cowering in his seat half the time... OK, maybe I'm exaggerating... (Sorry Kev!)

Oh man, still spending too much time on the forums... oh well...

Until Next Time!

Happy Chinese New Year! Almost.

Sorry I haven't been posting too often. I've been cooped up with the new GEPers forum (of which I'm going to add the link). I'm a moderator there. Whoopee!

I'm starting a new story based on my class. Check out the forums to find out more!

Yong Jun, Malaysian scholar, has been reported to be having measles and has gone back home for Chinese New Year. How sad.

I watched Mary Poppins two nights ago on the Disney Channel. Yes, Disney Channel. (Connecting with my inner youth.) Anyway, it was a terrific show; it's so good I have nothing to say. So, whenever you have nothing to say, there is a word to say, which goes...
What fun!

I mean, musical movies were a hit of an era past, but this is the kind of movie that move people. It has a moral, good song and dance, and none of the American new-age man-and-woman sex, gunfights, huge explosions, blah blah blah.

Ah well... see ya next time...
