Happy Birthday to Khai Fei!
The braids on my hair are falling off. I had to visit the salon again for the lady to fix it back for me. She retied 3 of my plaits for free. According to her, my plaits fell off probably because my hair is too short. If the problem still persists, I would have to remove my braids. Grr
I was just been informed about Ginny’s father demise. Ginny is a friend of mine and another fellow blogger from Brazil.
Her father passed away on the 14th Of November 2002 (May he rest in peace). People please visit Ginny’s website to cheer her up!
I did some gardening today. I cut out some of the branching plants into the pathway and swept all the autumn leaves. Damn, I hate autumn. It’s cold, it rains everyday and leaves fall everywhere. Anyway, I found 2 coins buried in some cracks. I thought it was some ancient coin (mind you, my house is more than 120 years old). However, it turned out to be a piece of 10 pence and 1 penny, minted in 1992.
I finally met up with my faculty’s Dean after weeks of searching for him. As I walk in, he greeted me with ‘hello’ and a smile. His smile on his wrinkled face and patches of white hair covering his baldness reminds me of an old gentleman. He was expecting me (I mailed him last week) and asked me couple of questions.
“Where are you from?”
“aahh, so I guess it will be very useful for you there”
He looked on my application form and said, “so you’re in your third year and you want to take a first year subject. Have you ever studied Japanese before?”
I replied “No sir”
“Very well, I’ll sign it for you then, have you been going for the classes? How do you find it?”
“Yeah, almost every classes. I like the subject.”
“Okay there you go”
“Thank you sir!”
woopeeeeee! I’m officially taking Japanese language this semester!
Muay Thai training was pretty shitty today. The class was small (hence we made less money this week) and I had to partner a girl. However, I underestimated her. Her kicks were amazingly strong. We were doing a push kick into the stomach. I was wearing a belly protector but her kicks were powerful.
– 11:50PMYesterday’s blog
I cooked for the first time even since I got back to Sheffield. Charles, Wen Dee, Shane, Siew Lee and I went to Castle market to get some groceries (it’s dirt cheap over there). I bought all the ingredients for Carbonara (Italian pasta) and cooked it within a short period of time (it’s my third attempt cooking Carbonara). It worked this time! Everyone loved it! It wasn’t too cheesy or too salty like the previous time I cooked it. However, everyone could barely finish it because it was amazingly filling.
MASSOC held a meet and greet session for the upcoming committee with the members. People running for a post must give a short speech about themselves and questions will be asked after they finish their speeches. We have plenty of people running for committee this year compared to the one last year. Some of them were crap but few of them were not bad.
Jun Meng, a veteran in our MASSOC society, who apparently also bombarded the people running for committee last year, repeated it again this year. He always use power words to question people till the extent nobody really understands him. He’ll ask anyone who seems weak or very influential. There was this guy who speaks weak English and had problem constructing sentences. He was running for treasurer and had no past experience except that the fact that he helped his dad to do some shares transferring. Jun Meng, without hesitation, indirectly insulted him by saying what does shares transferring got to do with a post of a treasurer. The guy couldn’t answer the question and had to retired back to his seat.
Jason caught us by surprise by running for president. He doesn’t look like a person that would be involved in clubs and societies. His speech is great and he seems to be doing well. As predicted, Jun Meng bombarded him with a tough question that involves social integrity with other societies and making sure that the identity of MASSOC would not be affected by it. Jason gave a good answer. He said that, the identity would not be lost but rather be known to other societies. However, as he was about to finish his sentence, someone interrupted him. The guy asked Jason whether would he allow other members from other societies running for MASSOC President. Jason replied ‘no’. The sentence “So doesn’t that make you a racist?” suddenly pops out from the guy. Jason was shocked but as soon as he wanted to say something, Hiskandar (our president) interrupted it by saying that there is an understanding between societies. Jon (our vice president) assisted Hiskandar but that guy shouted “racist!” No one knows what was his problem and it’s well known that that guy doesn’t know Jason at all. He’s like the Asian psycho who started shooting his classmates in Monash Uni. It was a moment of tense. Hiskandar had to quell the tense off. Jason finished his speech by saying “I feel so resented by the fact that I’m being called a racist”
There were many types of approaches made by the candidates in their speeches. Some preferred to brag about their abilities and past achievements. Some on the other hand gave unprecedented methods. One gal wore the shirt “Trust me, I’m a bimbo”. Another guy spoke about his obsession with football (he was running for Sport secretary) but spoke nothing about his role as a Sport secretary if he was elected. He even spoke like a nigga, with all the hand language and foul language. Jun Meng took the opportunity to bombard him. He asked whether is he a friend of Ali G. However, the guy had no idea who Ali G was.
The night ended in a hurry. There wasn’t enough time to conduct the question and answer session with the candidates. We ended the night by having a drink at Interval Bar.
I’m home alone. Most of my friends went Paint Balling this morning.
It’s the last criminal lecture. I guess it’s the last time I’ll see Michael Jefferson (yes, he wrote a criminal law text book) teaching me criminal law. As soon as he finishes his last sentence of the lecture, all of us clapped. awww, it seems so poignant
It is also the last meeting for our web page team this year. Almost everything is done, the website might be launched next Monday!
The weather was so cold that it almost freezed my balls off. *brrr*
I just came back from Cream @ Nation at Liverpool. It took us 2 hours to reach back to Sheffield. The whole event was great. It wasn’t not packed and the music was great.
Nation is made out of 3 rooms, the main room, the annex and the courtyard. DJ Sasha was at the Courtyard and DJ Tiesto was in the main room. They started playing at 2am. We had to line up for an hour to get into the courtyard when Sasha was playing, sheshh.
Dj Tiesto was fabulous! The last song he played was PPK – Resurrection, it was damn good and his finishing was magnificent!
The security in Nation is extremely tight. We had to put our belonging into a plastic bag that was given by the staff when we were lining up to get into the club. A body search was performed on us from the body and they even checked our shoes and stocking. However, one of my friends could still manage to sneak a popper in by hiding it between his toes, clever huh. hehe. Surprisingly, you could still get ecstasy pills here even though the security is super tight. The pills there cost about £5 each.
We have couple of new faces that turned for the event that was organized by our Clubbing Society. There’s this couple named Jim and Jane who disappeared to nowhere suddenly once we get into the club. Then there’s this 2 Malaysian girls who were once from Taylor’s College, Malaysia. There are about 15 of us. Carl came all the way from Nottingham to join us. Luckily there’s an extra seat for him. We reached Liverpool at 9:30PM and went home about 4AM.
