Back to School
Sorry for the recent MIA.. It's all due to the Infrared device which refused to work for the past week. Now I've got it sorted out, I can post pictures taken with my phone camera. So yeah, school reopened last Monday n I start my cross-island journey to school everyday again. Boring......
This semester will be better though, cos I'm taking some modules with friends, unlike last sem which I was all alone. Database Systems, Networking, Computer Graphics, Linear Algebra n Game Design. These are the modules titles i'm taking this sem. Sounds interesting? Haha, it's tough like shit i tell u. The only interesting one is Game Design, which i spent a whopping 1250 bid points to get it. At first i thought it'll be a male dominated module, cos it's mostly to do with gaming. But to my horror, the class consists of 75% females. Dead. I dread doing projects with females, n to think i have to do TWO for this module. Argh...
Let's juz hope this semester will pass by fast(13weeks) n smoothly. Then I would have completed my 2nd year in NUS. So looking forward to the 3months break after this study year. Oops, it's only the 2nd week out of 13 weeks of school term n I'm already thinking of holidays!
Heavy rain during the first day of school
Carpark outside Business school
The packed shuttle bus
Linear Algebra lecture
NUS has uniform for their students? No way.. These are JC students in my Linear Algebra module. They're so called the "H3" students. Oh well, they're mostly from the "elite" Raffles JC who has nothing better to do n deemed dat A level Maths is chicken feet to them. Thus they wanna have a shot at university modules. Crazy people
2nd day of school
U see this guy? I think he's a gay who's stalking me. Why? Cos I've met him 4 times. The first time was during last year end holidays when me n MQ saw him on the train. MQ said he's very handsome n looks like Orlando Bloom! Well, i agree with her.
Then to my astonishment, I saw him at MQ's apartment block a few weeks ago! Gosh, what are the chances of seeing a stranger on the MRT train n he lives juz right in your block??!!
The third time I saw him was during the 1st day of school! I think he's a NUS student. He was at Business canteen eating with his friend
The last time was the 2nd day of school on the MRT train in the above picture. I mean, what the fuck? The train has 6 cabins, n each cabin has 4 rows of seats. Why muz he sit right in front of me, facing me?? From then, i conclude he's gay. I took a few peeks at him n actually saw him looking at me. This Singapore Orlando Bloom is gay
ok enuff of him. This is the Chinese New Year decorations at Tampines Mall. The lantern is HUGE.....
Yesterday, Monday 21st January
For the first time in my life had I encountered a MRT train service disruption. Well, it wasn't the first time in Singapore history, but it was the first time I was affected. There was no train service from Pasir Ris to Tanah Merah for the damn morning from 5.30am-12.45pm can u believe it? It totally sucks, especially when I had to go to school early in the morning. A short journey on the train takes roughly 3-8minutes for me to get to Tanah Merah station. Ystd took me a long 45minutes. The road was jam packed with cars n makeshift shuttle buses to ferry the people to Tanah Merah station. What rubbish service is this? I bet many people were late for school/work ystd, me included.
"On 21 January 2008, there were no westbound and eastbound train services between Pasir Ris and Tanah Merah MRT stations from the start of train service at 5.28am till 12.45pm.
"The disruption was caused by the breakdown of a maintenance works train which was carrying out works between Tampines and Simei (westbound) MRT stations. There were some damages to the maintenance works train and we are investigating the cause.
"During the delay period, eastbound trains were turned around at Tanah Merah MRT Station. Bus bridging services were activated to ferry passengers between Pasir Ris and Tanah Merah MRT stations.
"The first bus arrived at Pasir Ris MRT Station at 5.38am, and the first bus arrived at Tanah Merah MRT Station at 5.48am. In total, 40 SMRT buses and 30 SBST buses were deployed during the disruption to ferry passengers between Pasir Ris, Tampines, Simei and Tanah Merah MRT stations. "
So after school, I cycled to Pasir Ris n saw the yellow coloured maintenance train parked there. How ironic eh? The maintenance train is supposed to tow the train, but it ended up the other way round.
