Yesterday went to celebrate Li Xiang birthday. It was a belated celebration because her actual birthday was on Wednesday (12th November) and the actual day itself, lots of people is working, thus we postpone the celebration to Saturday.
We met up at 4.30pm at Marina Square. Marina Square is really happening, it was very crowded and I do not know the reason behind it. We went for Kenny Rogers for dinner, they complained that the food there sucks, which I do not really agree with. If you get sick of it if you eat too much, but the food ain’t that bad.
Yesterday went for a lunch steak meal at Sizzler with Geargina. The price is almost the same as Ponderosa. But the salad bar of Ponderosa has more variety than that of Sizzler. Regarding the choices of steak, Sizzler has more unique choices. But overall, I still prefer Ponderosa. Didn’t know that my Popular card can get a 10% discount there, I practically thought that the Popular Card is useless besides being able to use it at Popular Bookstore.
Walked round Suntec, before having dinner at the Marina Square open air foodcourt. Of course, the only motive when going to the food court there is to eat the minced pork noodle! The queue was kinda long, but when you want to eat good food, you have to be patient!
Yesterday went back to school to help my FYP supervisor install our FYP project onto his laptop because he need to show it to the school committee on the following day for marks moderation. Hope can get an A for FYP.
Met up with my group members at Marina Bay MRT to go Long Beach Marina for dinner. It is my treat because I am the leader and the fyp is a successful one, so must enjoy ourselves by eating seafood!
Went for my ITP(Industrial Training Program) Interview at The Alpha, Science Park II. The company is Pi Eta Consulting Company. This company deals with financial risk analysis. 7 of us went for the interview, 4 from our course and 3 from DIT if I am not wrong. Out of 7 they will choose around 4-5 people. The job will be converting the current software which is written in VB6 on Windows Platform to web-based. The web programming language used is ASP and database is Microsoft SQL Server.
I kinda like the working environment, it is at Science Park II, my old workplace is just 2 buildings away which my uncle is working in and my mom’s office is also nearby. So when going to working can go with my mom and after work can come back with my mom. So can save on transportation fees. There is a small canteen in The Alpha and there is a shuttle bus provided by Science Park to Clementi during lunch break.
Met up with Jacky, Serene, Laily, Johnson and Li Xiang At Suntec’s Carrefour to buy food for Li Xiang birthday steamboat dinner at my place.
Saw the new Nokia 6600 dummy model, not much luck of seeing the actual one, took the brochure. The features are good and the price is kinda reasonably but it is quite fat and bulky. I think the new Sony Ericsson P900 will be better.
Went to Tiong Bahru Plaza for lunch With Jacky, Serene and Li Xiang and on the way to collect the tickets for Saturday’s Matrix Marathon. Li Xiang went back to SP to return books and the rest of us then went to Jurong Point to look-see look-see. Jean saw us at Jurong Point, and she hit my arm so hard that I got a shock. She went there to get her hair cut, and just nice Serene wanted to trim her hair, so end up both of them went for a hair cut at Storm while Jacky and I went to Mos Burger. Left for home around 6pm.
Today, went for my 15th driving lesson, it was the other instructor who took me, and I got “suan” so many times. The best part of it is that I cannot “suan” him back because I still want to pass my driving! So no choice but to keep quiet and keep nodding my head.
Don’t worry, this post will not contain any spoiler if you DON’T click on the read more link below.
Went to Sim Lim Square with Suqin in the afternoon to get the price-lists of some shops. Will be getting a new computer plus an 17 inch LCD screen because my mom office will be buying my current computer. I am thinking of Intel Pentium 4 3.2C GHz, 1GB PC3200 RAM, GeForce FX 5800 128mb and Sound Blaster Audigy. I really like Sony LCD screen design, but it cost $899 and in terms of performance and value for money Samsung 173T win Sony but its design not really that attractive, but still is cheaper so most probably getting that.
Had my 14th driving lesson today, learned how to parked vertically and negotiate slopes on public roads. With the guidance of poles, parking seems to be very easy. While on the other hand slopes is difficult, I think that is my weakest point.
Played abit of Counter-Strike 1.6, don’t know why, ever since CS became version 1, I don’t really like it. Is like any-o-how spray then it will be any-o-how headshot. Whereas last time is really depends on your skills. Well guess that my skills sucks so play for fun!
On Sunday, went with my parents to Orchard Cineplex for breakfast at the food court there. I didn’t know that after 14th November 2003, the food court there will be gone because the lease has expired. Not too sure whether they will be another food court or they will be using the place for something else.
Met up with Geargina at Orchard and went to study for ELIT in a Vietnamese cafe at UE Square. The banana milk shake and the spicy Vietnamese noodle is nice (even though it is not really that spicy). Walked around clark Quey before going to Liang Court for dinner. Ate the Japanese Potato (don’t really know how to spell it) Curry Rice from some stall outside the supermarket.
How time flies, another 61 days we will be in year 2004. Now I have been used to updating this blog 2 days once. Have not really been studying for ELIT for the past 2 days because I am on holiday mode now. Read through my stack of thick notes twice, then tomorrow will be memorizing the main points.
These few days have been sleeping very late, as late as 4.30am, then today woke up at 3.30pm. Half the day gone. LOL.
