Aiya just let me post something. This is a nice poem that me and a friend composed. It is not irrevelant ok!

Title: Singapore, this is my choice!
Singapore,
Our home and nation,
With love and patience,
Lies in between
indonesia and malaysia.

Singapore,
A beautiful place,
Full
of wonders and pretty face,
What a way to spend my
days!

Singapore,
Full of comfort,
A place for dimsum and
everything else,
The one that's sastify every single
one

Singapore,
A luxurous garden city,
With a peaceful
aura,
And great minds that's witty.

Singapore,
A fantastic
city,
No reason that I should leave,
Many reasons i should stay.

Oh Singapore, just watch me grow and play!

Suddenly realised that I very pro... cause we finished this in 5 minutes.. very nice right! About immigrants and Singapore, for history. I bet I got A for History because of this. All hail me.

Oh Singapore, just watch me grow and play!

/ 9:09 PM
DONT BOTHER TO READ. I COPIED ENTIRE THING FROM MY OWN BLOG. PASTE HERE ONLY TO COVER XINGZHONG'S POSTS. HAHAHAHAHA. LONG RIGHT. LONGEST CHINA POST. WHO WANT TO FIGHT WITH ME? HAHA.

DHSCO ROCKED CHINA DOWN.

The first day was a boring day.. all we did was to sit there was to WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT. Some people took some photos blah blah and then we continued waiting. And we continued being HIGH and continued getting scolded for being too noisy. When we were checking in, the biased AUNTY at the counter didn't give anyone of us sweets except for JY and Weicheng. Must be they too kiddy. (Self consolation in process, do not disturb.)

Watched a pervetic-but-I-like movie called "Date Movie". Not bad not bad. Pervetic enough haha. Heard that Mingquan and Cally were flirting with each other on the plane trip. Haha.

Nothing much happened when we reached Beijing. Ya. The mystical Yang Qiao Hotel was ok lar.. the walls were not sound proof so we could hear every word of Amelia and Zhiying talking in the room next door. Heh. The bathtub was good. HEH HEH.

On the 2nd day, we went to climb the Great Wall of China. Slacked alot.. especially in one of the so called towers.

Geneve: Let's pretend that we want to commit suicide.
Geneve: Let's let our hair downs and pretend to be Rapunzel! *squeals in delight*

Such a childish kid. tsk. Zichun and Kelvin Ho were one of the first to reach the top I think. Whoo~ landui!

We didn't climb to the top but we enjoyed the process.. the stairs there were damn steep can. And someone gave Kuei Fu a 'Niang niang' hat/hairband thing which he loved alot. It was abit gay but nevertheless, fun.

During one of the bus rides, Vincent, Lydia, JY, Cally and I were rather bored and due to a good idea of Vincent, we decided to wave to all the people in the passing cars. There was this particularly interesting guy that I must mention.

Cally, Jy, Me: *waves*
Guy: *no reaction*
Vincent: *waves*
Guy: *gestures for Vincent to come down excitedly*

The our bus overtook his and we didn't see him until his car came beside us after a while.

Guy: *stares at vincent and waves madly*

Then our bus and his car went in opposite directions.

Guy: *sticks head out of car window and waves frantically to vincent*

OMG that guy is so interesting haha. We kept laughing and laughing and laughing.

We took the night train to Shenyang in the night. Slept at the top bunk and kept konking my head against the ceiling. So fun! Haha. The cabin was made up of two triple decker beds and it was so damn cool! Woke up quite late :P

I saw alot of farming and agricultural stuff. Miss Ng must be very happy. Heh.

Shenyang is a very nice place, its tls's hometown. Quite clean and the air is also quite fresh. The hotel rocks. It's the best hotel in the whole trip xD

The performance at Shenyang wasn't too good. The paiwei wasn't perfect either. And the audiences were totally HORRIBLE. The only times they made some noise was when the MC misprounounced something. YUCKS.

Zichun said that the police officers there will shoot the audience if they don't clap. Dots but yah, if that was true, the whole theatre of people will be dead. The photo taking was rather hilarious. The DJY people kept teasing Zaihong about *ahem* and Wesley kept wanting to drag him to *ahem* until TWC stopped him halfway. Heh heh.

The 12 course supper was rather hilarious though. Nobody really ate something. The main focus was the SILKWORMS. I think its silkworms.. according to TWC. I ate one on a dare with Cally. Yucks. Damn disgusting. Tastes like the head of the prawn. Liqin and Yilin and Cally ate FIVE and thinks that its nice. Vincent ate SEVEN. And he was looking rather sick and the end of the whole thing and claims that he has some caught in his teeth. Haha. It's sick. If you caught some diseases after eating them, remember, Wei Cheng's medical box only has panadols. Haha.

The next interesting thing is the 怪坡. Pronounce Guai perrr. The tour guide rocks. The most interesting tour guide in the whole trip. Guai perr is a gentle slope stretching around 3m or so. When you cycle/drive down you'll be pulled up.. When you u-turn and go back up, you dont have to exert any force and you'll automatically move upwards. Cool?

Lan Dui was the first bus to reach there and the driver stopped moving when we reached the guai perr. The bus moved by itself!

Guanyang: The bus driver must be cheating us.
Me: The bus driver fake one lar.

Just then, Huang Dui's bus came on the slope opposite us after we U-turned.

Weicheng: I saw the uncle change gear!

LMAO haha. But it's quite true, the guai perr thing. We wrote bicycles down it and it was damn shiok. 6 degree weather, slight rain, me wearing tee shirt and jeans. SHIOK!

The walls between the toilet cubicles were damn low and I saw Yilin's butt haha. Ok actually I didn't but never mind :) Make Cally jealous :)

We went to Dalian the next day. That place rocks! Clean and fresh, located beside the sea. We went to the beach there and it was a rather lively and fun place.

Went to take the viking with some DYB people. Sat in the last second row with Geneve and JY and Lydia. Xingzhong, Joey, Amelia and someone sat in the last row.

Halfway through, Xingzhong and Joey were screaming their lovers and something like I don't want to die. Suddenly...

Xingzhong: MAYPING! MY BUBBLE GUM DROP ON YOUR HAIR!

Stupid doo doo. It was a pink piece.. found it on my jeans later on. YUCKS. Dumb Xingzhong.

Then Lydia told us to scream 'We love Vincent'. I think he was disgusted and ran off. Heh.

We took a ferry to Yan Tai the next day. I realised that I have motion sickness. NOOOOOO!

I was lying on the seat handle and people keep asking me if I'm alright and most importantly 'SIT UP STRAIGHT'. I feel like vomitting when I sit up straight and I definitely feel better leaning on the handle thing so why must I sit up straight? :( Yucks. Stupid doo doo.

And we took a bus to Peng Lai. And had an educational trip. I shall not blog about educational trips because erm you have to see it for yourself. BAI WEN BU RU YI JIAN. (:

Travelled to Long Kou by bus. Reached there late in the night. Pretty cool place. We staryed in the hostel of LONG KOU SHI DONG HAI WAI GUO YU XUE XIAO. The rooms are quite nice but the food is like doo doo. Only the milk is nice. tsk.

Next thing in the morning we took a few seconds bus to the school's auditorium which was like only how many metres away. I rather walk there although I'm holding my cello. HAHA IM SO STRONG THANKYOUTHANKYOU.

So we had a run through and the first concert in Long Kou began. The audience was like Primary School and some Lower Secondary School kids. Oogles, people.

TIAN SHAN SHENG HUI ROCKS x)

Lol so random. Never mind. After the concert(or before I forgot), went to find Esther and Shuting to gossip. We ended up singing a kiddy song, oh what a failure. HEH.

The 2nd concert was rocking good. The seniors said that it was truely one of the best concerts we ever performed or something like that. AND IT TRUELY TOUCHED THEIR HEARTS.

I love TIAN SHAN! LOL.

At the end of the whole concert, Eugene and some er hu guy was starting up some cheers and yup it was fun.

GIVE ME A D!
D!
GIVE ME A H!
H!

GIVE ME A S!
S!

GIVE ME A C!
C!

GIVE ME A O!
O!


and vincent was like..

GIVE ME A D!
RE~

*glass shatters*

As in Do RE Mi Fa the RE cause RE is D in theory in case you don't know x)

Next thing in the morning we had some eeky stuff for breakfast then we left for Wei Fang, where we went to a kite museum and to some memorial place of Pu Song Ling.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Then to Qu Fu, had a tour of Confucius Town and went to Tai An.

AND WE CLIMBED TAI SHAN!

HAHA! I can tell our beloved old bu pro calligraphy teacher MASTER KANG that I went to Tai Shan.

This is due to his famous quote: "稳如泰山"

YES! And I made an YING ZHANG there. So he must be a very happy calligraphy teacher now.

Took a cable car up to TAI SHAN to a certain height and then climbed all the way up. YAY! The wind up there rocks. REFRESHING!

Climbed up with Geneve. Climbed so fast that we caught up with Zichun and Kelvin Ho. HAHAHA. How it started:

Me: Heh heh let's go!
*climbs and climbs for a while*
Me: OMG Zichun and Kelvin Ho still here. Let's climb faster than them.
*climbs halfway up a steep block of stairs*
*zichun and kelvinho speeds up*
Me: *turns behind* HEY ESTHER IS BEHIND!!! HAHA! TUANZHANG ALSO BEHIND!
Geneve: -.-

Anyway after that block of stairs, I was busy putting on Lip Balm when zichun suddenly appeared behind us so in the end we climbed some way behind them and met Yilin and Liqin. The rubbish bin there is damn cute, yes it is.

Okay so TAI SHAN rocks. I must tell that to Master Kang.

Then nothing much happened just that curfew was cancelled on the last day YAY. Ended up watching whatever World Cup. Germany and some Cola country. Everybody supported Germany then I found Cola so poor thing so I supported Cola.

Then went back to a room to gossip with YILIN then Geneve came and YILIN SNORES. Haha.

Played UNO for awhile with Liqin and Cally then decided to sleep for one hour before waking up again. zzzz

BORING AIRPLANE RIDE.

Then HOME!

then zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Goodnight.

I FINALLY finished this. GOSH I ROCK.

And a little add on:

The sectwo lan dui-ians try to make it a point to sit together during mealtime so we can see Cally finish the entire plate of veggies and JY the smally smelly indian finish all the soup.

Imagine- future fenzus with a vegetarian and a smelly brown girl. GOODNESS. (:

HIGHLIGHTS ON GOSSIPS:

YILIN AND WATER CLOSET.
CALLY AND MINGQUAN.
DANIEL AND PRIDA.
DANIEL THONG. (Inside joke)

and many many more.

HAHA I LOVE LAN DUI! (:

Reflection on China Trip '06 (31st May to 10th June)
/ 2:49 PM
One of the many highlights of the China trip this year was the opportunity to play my favourite song: Qu Yuan Fu - Ju Song. It is my favourite song not only because its melody is very moving, but also because behind the wonderful song, is the great man, Qu Yuan, whom I really admire.

Qu Yuan was a great politician and poet in the Warring States Period (476 BC - 221 BC) in the state of Chu. During that time, because the State of Qin was becoming strong and dangerous, Qu Yuan tried to form alliances with the neighbouring states so that they might have a chance against the mighty and evil Qin. However, because there were some bad eggs who corrupted the Chu king, Qu Yuan was instead exiled.

During his exile, he travelled and wrote a lot of poems and songs that expressed how much he loved his country, and how sad he was that his country was going to get invaded by foreigners. While in exile, he did not resort to doing something silly like trying to muster popular support for better foreign affairs administration in the capital so as to pressure the king to make more astute political decisions. Instead, he did the right thing of falling into depression and writing touching poems that did not point out the flaws in the current administration.

So, when the capital of Chu was finally captured by the Qin army in 278 BC, he couldn't take the grief and committed suicide by jumping into the Miluo River.

Qu Yuan was a good minister who carried out effective political reforms, and he was also an accomplished poet whose poems still make people today feel extremely patriotic and sad when they read them. Nobody really seem to take note of that, but, in my opinion, his greatest accomplishment and what everyone should remember most about him is still his committing of suicide.

If us normal people, especially Singaporeans, committed suicide, we'd probably get hand-cuffed and all that because suicide is still murder according to the British Law, and then maybe our suicide will turn up in the media, but it's a very extremely small chance and only if our suicide was part of a disturbing social trend that was worth highlighting for the sake of social awareness for the general public. Nobody would even know our names because our identity has to be protected and all that.

However, when Qu Yuan jumped into the river, he managed to mobilize the whole neighbourhood to look for his body in the river, and then when they couldn't find it, they made and threw perfectly good rice dumplings that could have been used to feed poor and starving peasants into the river to prevent the fishes from eating his body. And then 2000 years later, we celebrate his suicide by eating rice dumplings and racing in dragon boats every duan wu jie (5th day of 5th month of lunar calendar).

So the lesson that I have learnt from Qu Yuan's story is that when we suffer setbacks in life, we should wallow in self-pity and depression and give up altogether. We should not try to help ourselves, nor accept any form of help to recover from the setback, but we should keep telling other people how depressed and upset we are in our poetry. So that when we do commit suicide, people may start to notice our works of art and might even create a holiday or two to celebrate our suicides!

shoe game:
ok... so you everyone take off their shoe, then they leave it in a heap. Then you blind fold a person. The person will have to pick a shoe. then do something with the owner of the shoe as a forfeit. like... erm... shake hands? chicken dance?

wooden spoon game:
it doesn have to be a wooden spoon. just a spoon, a stick will be fine. a few people stand in a row. Then you blindfold a person. the person have to take the spoon and use it to try and guess who is the person in front of her by running the spoon on the face. The one who got guessed by the blindfolded person will be the next blindfolded person.

AMBUSH! [fun game!]
Split your group into two teams which we will call A and B. Group A leaves 5 to 10 minutes before group B and must leave clues behind (footprints, marks, arrows, codes, pieces of paper, etc.). They must then camouflage and set up an ambush for group B. Group B leaves and follows the footprints and clues left by group A and tries to discover the ambush site. During the ambush the groups face each other in mock combat and attempt to steal each other scarves/sticks from back pockets. The meeting of the two groups could also result in the yelling of "AMBUSH" and a race back to home base again.Get the flag5/6 person per team. Put a around 20 flag/stick on your base, then you run to the other person's base and grab their flag and put it on your base. just keep grabbing and putting. No defending of base. Then at the end of 3 mins, count the number of sticks you have.

Baby if you love me won't you please smile? [dammit... it's a fun game]
Everyone sits in a circle. Placement doesn't matter. A player is chosen to go first. The player goes to another player in the circle that they think will laugh easily. Then they sit in front of them and say "Baby if you love me, won't you please smile?" Make faces or anything to make the person smile or laugh. No touching. After the person says "Baby if you love me won't you please smile?" the player being targeted on must say "Baby I love ya but I just can't smile" without laughing or even cracking a smile. If they don't smile and say the phrase without a hitch, the person can move on to get another target. If the person being targeted on laugh, it's their turn to be the person in the middle. FUN RIGHT?

A contagious laughing game
This is a contagious laughing game. Player #1 lies on their back and places their head on the belly of player #2 . Player #2 then places Their head on the belly of player #3, and so on. Players should end up lying in a zig zag formation. Now the first person shouts "ha!" and the next person answers with "ha ha!" and so on. Each player adds one more "ha". Soon everyone loses control and starts laughing hysterically.
