Plastic?!

So after 3 months (more or less) of holidays, I finally set foot in Taylor's University Lakeside Campus for the first time this year.

As usual, only lectures this week, which means that I only have classes this Monday and Friday. Was almost late for the second lecture because we were at the wrong classroom, lol.

Funniest thing that happened today (besides rushing 2 floors to get to the correct lecture venue) was when Rhea, Ruth and I were walking towards Old Town to yumcha and get a bite to eat. We saw Mr Winston walking towards us, so we waved and said hi. First thing he asked me was "Did you go for plastic surgery?"

LOL

So I told him I was insulted by that, even though I know he meant it as a compliment (sorta). XD

On a completely unrelated note, I finally managed to pick up my Sushi Tei card in Tropicana City Mall just now, and signed up for the Borders card as well.

Looks like it'll be me, my bed and the first Assassin's Creed novel tonight. Since I can't play the actual game itself, I can pretty darn well read the story!

伯牙绝弦

Reminds me of my high school Chinese textbook. O_O Reminds me how much I disliked Chinese literature.
楚国有个著名的音乐家,叫做俞伯牙,他的琴弹得虽然好,但是能听懂的人却不多。
有一天,伯牙乘船游江的时候,来到了一座高山前,突然下起了倾盆大雨,伯牙琴兴大发,弹到兴起的时候,突然听到岸上有人感叹到"多么巍峨的高山哪",伯牙又弹奏一曲,那人说道‘"多么浩荡的江水啊"。
于是伯牙走出船舱,发现,在岸边听琴的人,竟是一个砍柴的樵夫。他叫做钟子期,伯牙又佩服又激动地跟子期说"这世上惟有你,才能真正听懂我的心声,你真是我的知音"。于是,两个人结拜为生死之交。
后来子期不幸,染了重病过世。伯牙闻此噩讯,赶到子期的墓前,为他弹奏一曲,弹完之后,他就将自己最珍贵的琴,毁于子期的墓前,从此之后,伯牙就与琴绝缘,再也没有弹过琴。

KC Annual CNY Lunch

Last Saturday we had our annual KC Chinese New Year gathering, which was held at Rakuzen G-Tower this year.


Which of course, means having our "Yee Sang" tradition! 

Our Japanese yee sang.
Lou ah!!

My set lunch. I was super hungry la 'kay? I burnt my mouth on the claypot udon, but it was so darn good I don't really mind. (My meals for 2 days after that were agonizing though. >_<)

Claypot udon and sashimi rice.
 A lot of them couldn't make it because of classes or balik kampung or prior appointments, so this is all of us there that day. =)

Everybody look here and look pretty! XD

Even though we couldn't get as many ex-classmates to attend as we had hoped, we still had a good time catching up with each other. ♥  Thanks to Yng for organizing the whole thing! ^^

I'm looking forward to next year's gathering. Hopefully more people can join in, then it'll be a proper reunion!
