Happy Birthday To Lester & Leroy

Today spend a 无所事事 day to celebrate Lester and Leroy’s birthday.

Start off the day with a damn fulling lunch at Outback. Still, we never manage to finish that blooming onion dish. Roam around Marina Square before we go to the Tiger Live “museum” thingy at St James Power Station.

The Tiger Live event is a guided tour, adult fee is $18 but we got the tickets free from Lester’mum. We are early for the show. Therefore, we went to take neoprints at Tiger Den, with stimulated background. There is this 3D animated show which shows how the process of Tiger is made. Cool~


Lastly,we are lead to the bar, Tiger Cool. Tiger beer is best cool between -2°C to 2°C. And we are taught how to tap beer into the glass. It tastes very different when we drink there. Partly because it is chilled at the controlled temperature, partly because the beer there are 3 days old. Those we bought on the shelves are at least 1 week old. See the difference?

Anyway, have been strolling at harbourfront and vivo city before we catch TMNT. It has been a long day, but i hope these 2 birthday boys enjoyed.

Happy birthday to both of you, and treasure your love ones (blink blink).

Graffire 2007

Left to right: Illustrated copy for entry submission, actual canvas painting

Had this canvas painting competition in ADM on Wednesday. We are one of the top 5 finalists who have submitted their entries.

“We saw the word ‘Graffire’ as a fusion between two words, ‘Graf’ and ‘Fire’. The term gave us a general feel of danger and rebel. We also agreed that Fire symbolizes power. Then we thought in context. We wanted our image to be personalized, we wanted it to be dangerous and powerful. Our image is an image of a puppet being manipulated by many powerful strings; the puppet being the artist (which represents us) and the strings representing the many restrictions and influences that artists are facing these days. Restrictions like licensing, etc. and influences from the media are stifling our creativity. However, despite all these, we want to show that our image, our voice, is the most powerful.”

Indeed my very first hand experience with spray paint. At first, i still feel very insecure with it because you cant control them as you would like with a paint brush. But nevertheless, we “nearly finished” the whole composition. Yar… Din manage to put in the lines that holds the puppet which are the main point of the whole canvas.

Din win lar… Lose to Bernard’s group who did the below. But still, we can share their prize with the class, $170 worth of Shaw movie passes. Heez~

Falling Asleep

Did something real stewpig today. Reach school early at 8.30am and settle down in the library. Due to the comfortable sofa by the magazine rack and burning midnight oil for the past 2 days, i fell asleep in the library.

Consequence haf to bear: 30 minutes late for lesson. Most frustrating, the classroom is jus outside the library. Arghh…















刚开始对莫莫一些人改变看法,看来还是狗改不了吃屎,又再 take advantage of their situation 把你深深活埋了。觉得他们非常可恶~

我要飞到无人岛~除了我肥肥的 Lester Chan 以外,其他人都不想见了!!!

Sweetest You

My darling promises to bring me to Night Safari and Jurong Bird Park during holiday. Just the thought is enough for me to sleep tight tonight. (n.n)

Music and Lyrics

Can’t help falling in love with Hugh Grant again. I know, an old man already. But just his smile and his overall charisma is enough to make me crazy. Wish to meet him once in my lifetime. Hahaha~

But i’m suppose to promote Music and Lyrics. Very nice show with simple plot. Music just tie 2 strangers together and make love blossoms. The OST is incredibly 80’s. That’s not a bad comment, very soothing for people of my age.


Way Back Into Love
I’ve been living with a shadow overhead
I’ve been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
I’ve been lonely for so long
Trapped in the past, I just can’t seem to move on

I’ve been hiding all my hopes and dreams away
Just in case I ever need em again someday
I’ve been setting aside time
To clear a little space in the corners of my mind
All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can’t make it through without a way back into love
Oh oh oh

I’ve been watching but the stars refuse to shine
I’ve been searching but I just don’t see the signs
I know that it’s out there
There’s got to be something for my soul somewhere
I’ve been looking for someone to shed some light
Not just somebody just to get me throught the night
I could use some direction
And I’m open to your suggestions

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can’t make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart again
I guess I’m hoping you’ll be there for me in the end
There are moments when I don’t know if it’s real
Or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration Not just another negotiation

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can’t make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart to you
I’m hoping you’ll show me what to do
And if you help me to start again
You know that I’ll be there for you in the end


Finally it’s weekend, I can gather my thoughts and prepare for the next week. This week is taxing due to my inefficiency, most of the homeworks are not completed. Endless nights of last minute production has almost burnt my Tuesday, Wednesday. Things get worst when i have an extra long day on the first 2 days of the week.

I’m promoting to year 2 in the coming August. Time really flies… ADM has been my home for 1 year. Had a Show-and-Tell session with all different departments in school. Yes, it’s time to choose my major. I am pretty firm that Visual Communication will be the one i am falling back on. If given a chance, i would like to venture into Product Design because i wanna do Lifestyle Design, but i dun dare to forgo what i have already know.

Presentation by the Visual Comm department is utterly disappointing. It shatters a lot of my classmates’ dreams and visions about this major. Firstly, the professor show a series of images that can be easily taken from magazine (rather commercialize stuff you can find in the market), we don’t see our senior work. Secondly, the modules outline is so vague that “Graphics Design 01” and “Typography 01” doesn’t give you much direction what these are actually doing. My classmate asks the professor in the refreshment, why there is no showcase of the 2nd year students’ work? The reply is pretty much unexpected – because they are unfinished. Probably, we are looking at the process and what the rest did at our level instead of the blink blink completed design. We simply dun care. We want works that are collated during this process of learning. Therefore, the flop of this presentation has shaken many of them to go into other majors like Animations or Interactive Design.

We are definitely very new (only consisting of year 1 & 2 students), modules and course outline are always in the process of adjustment. There is no standard of teaching, coz they take a very different approach in that. For example what we are going through now, GDIT alike module, Prof A will deliver the principles of design through various use of paint and paper media but Prof B goes into textile to deliver the same principles. So your skills and knowledge is influenced and built up by the style of your professor, not a program designed what are supposed to be done. Then it comes down to Heng-Suay, whether the prof’s teaching style suits and inspires you.

Our future lies in these very “promising” prof’s hands. Isn’t it very risky also? I can only say the system here sucks.
