Went for my 3rd driving lesson today. It rained again. Well guess that the rainy season are approaching especially when it comes to November. Well today lesson kinda fun, I am not as nervous as last time when comes to changing gear. Today did more advanced stuff on top of driving around the circuit. I think as times goes by I should be able to get the hang of it. Aiming to take the Traffic Police test at the end of December.
Java is really driving me crazy. Took me 1 hour trying to figure out how to use the Date Object with FormatDate Object just to achieve a drop down menu style date. Completed my Item’s Category management and my adding of Items. Next stop is editing and deleting the items. So far the progress is good and on the other hand my FYP and GAME progress is bad.
Had breakfast at The Nudle Bar at Hereen yesterday. Went to buy another fourskin shirt. It is an old design, thus it has a 20% discount. I did ask alot of times for different designs, but all of them my size is out of stock. So end up buying one only. My brother wanted to buy also, but alot of them the sizes are out of stock.
Bought 100 pieces Imation brand CDRs from PK Computer. The funny thing about PK Computer is that they don’t sell SmartBuy normal CDRs, so no choice had to try out other brands.
Had laksa at Depot Road for my breakfast before going to school to attend ELIT lecture. I think today ELIT lecturer is the most interesting one. The lecturer talk about RIAA, piracy, canning, gang members. I think he is one of the most interesting part-time lecturer in the whole of SP even better than some full-time lecturer. Without failed, his jokes will make the whole lecture hall laugh even though it is a lame one.
Went to celebrate Serene’s birthday after the lecturer. First stop is lunch at Ponderosa in Marina Square. Had black pepper steak. I just love their steaks there. I think I prefer Ponderosa than Jack’s Place. Ate 3 pieces of chicken from my friends as they cannot finish it and I am so bloated. Spent around 3 hours there chatting and playing games.
Stayed back in school after my JSPG practical lesson to help Serene with her fyp regarding php. Don’t know why the more the code/logic cannot work, the more I want to solve it. Been a long time since I touched php with ereg/eregi. But nevertheless, I managed to solve it after hours of debugging and thinking. Feel a sense of satisfaction.
Went to Orchard with Jacky after that to buy my fourskin shirt and on the way buy birthday present. Bought 2 new fourskin t-shirts.
Had breakfast at Ikea. The special meal for the day is vegetarian bee hoon. Not that bad and it is cheap, $1.50 only.
Had my 2nd driving practical lesson. Mine is a fixed group. There are 2 instructors, Mr Tang and Mr Lee. My first lesson was Mr Lee, today was Mr Tang. It was raining very heavy today, but not that bad, still can drive per normal. Almost forget all the things that I learned from the first lesson. After a few rounds of warm up, things start coming back to me. It was fun nevertheless. My next lesson will be on Monday and is Mr Lee.
Had my usual lessons on a normal Wednesday. Went for 2 briefings about ITP(Industrial Attachment). One for overseas attachment, one for local attachment.
For the overseas attachment, we were brief on 2 universities, University Of Melbourne(Australia) and Middlesex University(UK). Well, for overseas attachment it is going to be very expensive. For Middlesex University, the school fees for a year cost 8000 pounds, which is around 24K Sin dollars, the good thing about it is that we only need 1 year to get our degree, whereas for the University Of Melbourne, even though it is cheaper, it will take us 2 years to get a degree.
Didn’t go for school yesterday as I went to help out my mom at the Expo. Thought last day the food expo will not be that crowded, but it is almost the same as Sunday. And surprising the sales of the last day beat all the previous days. Woot. Luckily my brother and I went down to help, else I think really short of man-power in the afternoon.
Had my usual GAME practical lesson today, started work on my pacman maze. Hope it will not be that difficult. I really very afraid of GAME assignment. It is quite tough compared to JSPG. Total left 3 assignments, GAME, JSPG and FYP. Wonder can I finish all these assignments on time. Sighz.
Woke up at 7.15am today. Went for hiking at Bukit Timah Hill with Serene, Suqin and Lay Hiang. Jacky and Laily cannot make it because they want to sleep. Talking about sisters and brothers. LOL
We took a shorter path to the summit because of time constraint. I think most of the path are man-made. Saw many interesting insects on our way up especially the huge ant carrying an ant egg I presumed. Half-way through saw a stream of following water. Although it is man-made, it is very nice the water is clear and I tasted it a little. No funny taste. =D
Been very very busy for the past 2 days at the expo and that explains why I didn’t update this blog.
First off some sad news, there is an explosion at one of my house downstairs coffeeshop, block 112. A gas tank exploded at the western food stall. 1 person was injured, not sure whether is the uncle looking after the stall or my friend looking after the stall. Whoever he is, I wish him a speedy recovery. That explains why when I came home on Friday, I saw fire engines and police car. The first thought that came to my mind is people commit suicide. After asking my dad’s friend, then I know what happens.
Woke up at quite late today, 2pm. LOL. Want to correct some mistakes that I have made in the last post. Is is Singapore Food Expo and NOT Singapore Food Festival. It will be on from 18th September 200) to Monday(22nd September 2003) and NOT till Sunday.
Back to the topic. Went to help my mom at 4.30pm. Helped to arrange the goods, stock goods and to collect money. Business was not too bad considered it is a weekday and the first day of the food expo. This year, they open the whole hall 5, last year was only 1/2 if I am not wrong. Thus, it is very spacious and the lanes are very wide. No more squeezing and extreme slow walking.
