Almost the whole day was out with my parents. Woke up at 10am and went to Marina Square foodcourt. My parents wanted to try out the minced pork noodle. Mom applied the UOB Metro Visa Credit Card as the first 3 years is free. Went over to Suntec City to collect a free organizer from Bree. It stated it worth $180 on the voucher, but when we got it, I doubt it is even worth more than $20. Finally found those fake mountain climbing hooks from a shop close to the Duck Tours Counter in Suntec’s City. Been looking high and low for it.
Went to Bras Basah’s Popular to buy my brother textbooks. Surprising after the 5% discount, it is even cheaper than buying from bookshop and you can even pay by credit card. On the way bought a SAT book, need to study for it as I hope to take the test somewhere in April 2004.
Had my 22nd driving lesson today. After my 20th lesson, I kinda got alot of confidence when it comes to driving, need lesser time to warm up each time. But parking is still my killer. Today both of my fixed instructor didn’t come, so a stand-in instructor taught me. At first he talk to me in English, and it was kinda fluent, don’t know why suddenly he talked to me in Mandarin, and give me all those driving terms in Mandarin. Really had to think for a second what does it mean. Especially turn left and right in Mandarin. I know my Mandarin sucks.
Went for lunch with my mom before returning home. Wanted to take a short nap but end up tidying my computer table. Now it is really spacious and neat.
Check my results for this semester. All of us thought it will be out on 29th November 2003 at 8.30am, but the actual fact is on 28th November 2003 at 8.30am, which means since this morning it has been already out and I never checked it.
Anyway, I think this semester I did the best. As what XiuYu say, it is a happy ending because this is our last study semester. =D
Met Geargina for lunch at Burger King in Tiong Bahru Plaza. The student price for the set meals is cheap. A Mushroom Swiss Meal cost $4.50 while the usual price is around $6.
Went straight to Sitex 2003 after lunch for the 2nd time. Walked around and this time we talk to SuQin longer. Feel like a VIP when you walk through those lanes where on each side there are so many people giving out flyers. Those companies selling camera stuffs always hire model or chio bu to distribute those flyers. No wonder they always say “sex sells”. I doubt many people will buy computer systems from there. Most just go there, take a look, and keep themselves updated, while some may buy some accessories like printers, monitors, cameras, speakers etc.
Yesterday went for my 21st driving lesson. Finally learned parallel parking, it wasn’t that difficult because there are guide poles. Imagine when you just passed your driving, the killing subject will be parking, be it vertical or parallel.
Met up with Geargina later to watch Warriors Of Heaven And Earth at Jurong Point. The show lasted slightly more than 2 hours. Storyline was not that bad but then the movie is kinda boring because it lacks action.
Yesterday went to Funan to buy my mouse with Geargina. Bought the Logitech MX 500 Optical Mouse from PK Computer. Had minced pork noodle from Marina Square for our lunch. The queue was shorter than that day, so took me about 20 minutes or so.
Walked round Suntec’s City and Marina Square. Saw Lynn working at the Singapore Visitor Center. Those round stalls there is near Esprit. As we suppose to meet Elaine and Benjamin at 5.45pm and we were still very early, we took a walk round Raffles City. The computer shop, Planet E+G is now gone. Below at the atrium they are having some sort of Disney fair. Lots of Disney’s stuffs including the latest cartoon, Brother Bear.
Had a meeting with my client yesterday to discuss about the final changes that need to be made to The Quiet Room and CBT before we upload it to the live server.
As the meeting was quite short, came home after that to take a nap before meeting my secondary school friends at Tiong Bahru Plaza. Long time didn’t been to Tiong Bahru Plaza even though I stayed so near. So many new shops especially the basement 1 and they opened a new branch of Long John Silvers there.
Stayed up till 4am today, and the bloody GV site still doesn’t allow me to book for the LOTR Marathon. The tickets at Cinelesiure seems to be sold out when I went in at around 1am.
Went to bed, set my alarm clock to 9am to wake up and book, who knows when I woke up at 9am, left the 2nd row from the front. I was like “what the fuck?”. 5 hours and almost sold out thanks to the tiny theater that GV assigned the marathon too. They should have it at Great World City Theater 6, where it is one of the biggest theater in Singapore. And special thanks to the fucked up webmaster who didn’t update the bloody database even at 4am where it suppose to go live at 12.01am.
Yesterday went to Sim Lim Square to buy my new computer. Bought it from Fuwell. I don’t know why, but I just kinda like the shop there, my brother computer and some other of my hardwares are also bought from there. My old computer(2.0Ghz) will be selling to my mom office for about $1.5k, and my new computer cost $2.6k exactly, so paid extra $1.1k.
