In brief...

I'm a Nature-lover, aspiring conservationist, and wannabe traveller in search of outdoor adventure.
My interests vary from conservation to education to heritage to Nature (biodiversity & wildlife) to outdoor activities to life in general.
They occupy most of my waking moment.

i think my life in a sch week is getting pretty boring, but weekends are okay. hardly go back to sch on weekends, i guess i'm shifting away from a largely sch-based life. unlike the past two years.

woke up bright and early (like 5 plus am!) both ytd and today. ytd cycled to pasir ris park with dad and jon, to catch low tide! and today, went with team seagrass to chek jawa(: before rushing to church which was at 1030 (but was still late anw)

saw lots of common sea stars and peacock anemones (:

pasir ris
idiot got his foot stuck in the mud
common sea star. plenty of those (:peacock anemone, if i'm not wrong (:not good at bird ID, but i reckon.. this is either an egret or a heron, haha tell me if i'm wrong


chek jawa!
sun rise!
sea hare






btw, failed grade 8 for the third time running. i conclude that i am not fated to get grade 8 for piano. on the bright side, i dont ever have to take another piano exam again! :D sth i've been looking forward to since i was like, in kindergarten.



been going to church a fair bit these few days. and it just re-affirms my beliefs and gives me the strength/courage to continue. to try and be Christ-like and be nice to everyone. even though it's tough and i lapse at times. but at least i try. whatever ppl say -.-




i dislike hypocrisy.


back to sch. i shall practice selective listening.





why do we make life so complicated for ourselves sometimes.

Thursday, March 26, 2009

i'm in an emo (which means contemplative/reflective, in my dictionary) mood today. but op smile was good and made me high(:



what IS the point in life? to have fun, be a good kid, get a good education, work hard, marry a good person, have a family, contribute to society, and then die, a happy person?

suddenly feel like going overseas, running away from current, leaving worries and thoughts and problems, just being happy and free and at peace, enjoying nature. somehow i picture myself on a nice grassy hill, clear blue sky and fluffy pretty clouds. trees in the distance, the weather not too hot, and i can just run around freely on the grass, lie down and have a nice nap, breathing the fresh air. and when the sun sets, i'll be able to see a beautiful, astounding sunset. and i'll just live happily in bliss like that.


but is it possible? life's too complex for that. there are my goals and visions that i'm working towards, some still rather vague but at least a rough idea of what i want to do, maybe what i have to do, or what i could do. and life cant be without unhappiness, for then how would you know happiness?


i really wonder, which friendships are the ones that i'll keep and constantly invest in, all the way through adulthood. cos friendship is a two-way thing, after all. there has to be some sort of mutual reciprocity
i guess it's possible to put up a facade, of keeping a relation for not wanting to i dno, hurt that person, but in the long run, it wont be sustainable.
i sometimes think we should make clear the terms/conditions of friendships, but doing that would take away the aura? the sanctity? of friendships. there wont be faith, in the person and the friendship. it wont be faith but knowledge.



i think, i've lost my passion/purpose/zeal for going to school. somehow, it just seems like something that i just have to do, and there's no longer a real want to come to school. to come to school, just to attend lectures/tutorials, compare notes on who has gone the furthest in various tutorials not yet covered, etc all just seem so... superficial? just like, sth that's there as an incentive to something more, but there's just nothing else after that.



and i wish that people with nothing better to say, would just not say anything. cos maybe you say what you say for fun/entertainment, but to me, it's not funny at all, and perhaps just insulting.

pe was horrendous today. thank goodness she was just doing relief (: i really think i'm gonna get more unfit over the two years. no training + can eat anywhere.

anw, lessons have been pretty uneventful. different from lessons in rg, but somehow i cant pinpoint exactly what is different (no it's not the presence of guys).
and i really wonder what my teachers think of me... (in fact i pretty much wonder what everyone else thinks of me)


am reading George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, and it reminds me of this other book that juan lent me the other time. about a whole new society that's totalitarian? and the whole social system is re-constructed, everyone wears the same clothes, have certain jobs allocated to them, everyone's controlled by this 'Big Brother' (it's called sth else in juan's book) and stuff like. and people dont know about 'life outside', cos they're not allowed to know. really fascinating, but i'm not a very critical reader, and i cant really succinctly talk about books like this (haha i'll never do a book review/do critiques)

but it reminds me of the Pol Pot regime in Cambodia, a lot. how everything is regulated, and you're not allowed to do stuff that the Party doesnt condone, or you'll be executed. and in Nineteen Eighty Four, it goes even further, they re-write past records to make sure it is in congruence with the present. such that you dont know what are truths and what are lies. dont know what really happened and what was fabricated. scary, i think.




anw, went back to rg today to collect HCL results, with sihui, liang si and yun xi. talked to mr tee, ms siow and ms chun (who's baby's due in june!). haha really, i think i sorta miss mr tee's not-bio lessons. all the talks on how to live life and what life is really about etc, and discussions. i think i miss having discussions the most. cos no philo either. i miss debating about certain points of views and discussing about various topics :( that actually interest me.




there are just a lot of grey areas and unspoken things in jc. assumptions about certain things that are not said. and yet if you say certain things, they get misinterpreted. somehow, i can foresee misunderstandings happening in jc.


and in jc, you can really see the diverging and converging paths that we are taking. like a prelude to life in the future.




and life now is really boring. i shall just hope that it gets more exciting over the two years. else i'll really regret the choices i made. which i currently dont.

yay 5th for boulderactive '09. which isnt bad considering i hardly trained for it (it was supposed to be for fun) and we were one of the youngest in the novice women cat. many people were around on fri afternoon, but this morning werent many.
sighs, i really wish rj would allow us to set up a climbing club, cos there's so much potential. see, cos rgs/rjc/acjc/hcjc all not breaking into the climbing scene, then other schs take advantage of this (cos well in most other sports, these are the dominating schs) and so there are many good climbers from other schs now.

anw, looking back on this past week, i think i've really enjoyed my holidays. used this week break to refresh, recharge, do the things i want to do and i feel somewhat prepared to face another 10 weeks of sch now (:
and i really think i'm quite glad i didnt join a sports cca, still. cos it'll have sapped a lot of my time. now that season is nearing. i managed to cycle, climb, do osl stuff, study, catch up with soff/nair/shaina. which makes me happy (:



people that make me smile everytime i see them :D

and a quote that i feel will always remain relevant and central to me, no matter what:

To laugh often and much;

To win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children;

To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;

To leave the world a bit better, whether by
a healthy child, a garden patch
or a redeemed social condition;

To know even one life has breathed
easier because you have lived;

This is to have succeeded.

my very very very last camp at rgs. osl selection camp 09.

you realise that now, as a J1, you look at things differently. you see more, and you understand more.
nonetheless, i enjoyed myself very much. really felt at home in rg, roaming about the place, watching the juniors run around settling stuff. a feeling that i'm kind of missing now.

like esther was saying, maybe it was cos in rg, we felt uh, important? like we were the oldest, we planned the camps for you, we know better than you. you feel sort of assured, haha maybe with a bit of arrogance. but i miss the busy feeling, running around, panicking, frantically calling this person or that to settle this thing or that.


anyways, enjoyed myself in rg, at night, for a last time. didnt sleep much, but it's somewhat worth it. to see my juniors again, and watch how they've grown up.



intended to go straight to Velocity, but decided to come home to crash for a bit, refresh myself before going for Boulderactive.
waited for super long. and being people from our school, promptly started doing hw.


was really unprepared, but still did quite well. but now, i cant join novice again, and i have to go back on sunday :/ i really didnt want to, i'm not that kind of person. but well, whatever.








never feel like you're worth nothing, i think that's the worst feeling you can ever get. cos really, everyone of us makes a difference to someone or something. the impact we leave behind, is probably something that you dont realise, until you look back years later, or when someone tells it to you.
and if you think about it, just be LIVING on this earth, you're leaving a carbon footprint. and the people you interact with, you'll leave an impact on one of them at least. and there'll always be one person who'll always be there for you(:
we're all important, in our own ways!(:

spent my morning at NIE, had some character development conference. lots of ppl/project were there, and osl was under the youth voice service learning part.

attended mr segarra's presentation on peer-mentoring, he and this other person, Dr Lai from HK, presented on peer-mentoring and character development or sth like that.

was really interesting, provided much food for thought. and i guess that's why i love osl so much, cos it has impacted me in more ways than just "oh i appreciate my life in singapore so much more, with our running electricity and fresh water". it led me to think more, reflect more, question more. and i really think without osl, my life would really be different. it's not just the experience that i'll be lacking, but as a person, i would be rather different too.

i remember in s3, in cambodia, i was sharing sth about how what i learnt from the trip was not the tangible stuff like "cooperation" and "teamwork" but more intangible things, that i cannot tell what, or sth like that..

but it's only a while after the trip happens, that you realise how much you've actually gained out of it. at least i did, and i think most of the mentors too.



-about overseas service learning in general-

there are actually two learning parts in SL. though ppl somehow usually just think of the second. and this was brought to my attention by mr segarra, i never thought about it this way either. that the first level is actually the learning to carry out your service. in my case, it was learning of Khmer language, cooking, IT etc. on the second level, then comes the learning from carrying out the service, all the "i realise how passionate they are about their studies and learning" and learning more about your self and personal growth.


in some ways, because of progress, or so called progress, we have become desensitized, less personal/human touch? like sort of no more kampong feeling, you hardly even know the neighbours who live next to you. though of course this is a generalisation, i'm sure there are people who still keep up with their neighbours..

you may think that you are one of the few people who go overseas to do service, but there are so many other overseas service learning trips, from pri sch all the way till adults. and i realised essentially what people say after they get back is about the same. no matter what the service is, where they went to.
that those people (their target group) live simple lives, but are happy. and when the students go there and play their simple games and stuff, the students feel happy too, dont need computer games and internet and stuff like. and even though materiallistically speaking, they're not as well off as we are, you cant exactly say they're deprived cos they live life happily. or at least you'd like to think they live life happily.
and that when you live life simply, you have more time to reflect, and you feel happy (i guess removed from all the stresses and stuff, who wouldnt be?)
and you realise that even though there's all that cultural barrier, you can still make friends and you treat everyone equally, whatever disabilities they may have or differences. and you start to appreciate their culture.
and somehow, after you're overseas, you learn communication skills and how to work in a team and work outside your comfort levels and stuff.

but maybe it's cos you know that after that two weeks, or 7 weeks, you'll be going back home, to your comforts?
and really, we'd like to think that we helped the poor in a third world country by a lot, and made a significant impact on them. but how do you really know that we're not doing more damage than help? (which is sth we were asked in s3, and we asked in s4)
i mean, stuff like building houses etc? if locals can do it better than you can (obv right, unless you're trained in construction) then they're probably just letting you do it so you can gain invaluable experiences out of it. so you can live out of your comfort zone.

and i guess the question that most people ask themselves after the trip (or we were asked), is that why do we have to go overseas to serve, why cant we just do it in singapore? there's a lot to be done, helping with the elderly and the less abled etc. is it just to be in a different environment, out of comfort zone?

but this is not to say that osl (or whatever other name you call it, isle, isl or whatever) has no benefits.. though honestly i think service learning is a very selfish thing (ultimately there's a lot of learning done. and i'm not talking about building up portfolios here, to do osl for that reason is extremely -.-) but then again, everything we do is for selfish reasons. for our own good, no matter how selfless it seems? like a feel-good factor, that hey look, i helped someone today! kind of feeling. though would it be doing it for the wrong reasons then?





and i really think the greatest takeaway from osl for me, is the reflection process. that now i think/reflect/question more. and really, you dont have to live a simple life to reflect. just take a few quiet moments to think. and no it's not emoing. places close to nature, are really awesome places to reflect. it's just you, mostly. and there'll be pretty scenaries and cool creatures and a very calm and relaxing ambience.
and that mostly arose cos of the chance to be a mentor.
because of mentoring, you start to ask questions. you learn more about yourself. like mr segarra said, it's to share your experiences with the "new-comers". and i think i really enjoyed mentoring. sort of gives me purpose.




kay again, lots of questions. no definite answers i guess, these things are pretty subjective. but i really miss all those sessions when we discussed this and tried to get answers from our teachers. but anyway, ultimately, i think i really learnt lots from osl. and i hope everyone else did too. though somehow, it's only now, that i'm starting to realise how much i've learnt from it.

i realise facebook is for seriously nothing-better-to-do people. okay maybe not, i guess some people like facebook very much and spend lots and lots of time on it cos they think it's worth the time and effort.

but well. like what a newspaper article said, it's like, i dno, just a status symbol or sth. like see how many million friends you can get. and status updates are okay fine, updating people on what's going on in your life, but some of them are really -.- like you just want to have something to write to post. ah wells (:

dont really like facebook that much so shall post this here. haha super amusing.

Your view on yourself:

You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties. [i agree]

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:

You like serious, smart and determined people. You don't judge a book by its cover, so good-looking people aren't necessarily your style. This makes you an attractive person in many people's eyes. [haha uhh can the person be somewhat humorous too. else i'll die of boredom.]

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:

You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person. [okayy if you say so.]

The seriousness of your love:

You like to flirt and behave seductively. The opposite sex finds this very attractive, and that's why you'll always have admirers hanging off your arms. But how serious are you about choosing someone to be in a relationship with? [wthhh?!??!?!?!?! okay fine, i shall be dao and reclusive and hide in my own little emo corner. aw man, this is ridiculous. do tell me if i behave that way, i want to change.]

Your views on education

Education is very important in life. You want to study hard and learn as much as you can. [duh. i need to work hard for class mugger status xD haha :P]

The right job for you:

You're a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income. Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you'll be set for life. [noo, i dont want a regular job. i'm a practical person yes, and i want a job with a steady income. doing what i like. but i dont like doing regular things. i like to do things that other people dont really do xD]

How do you view success:

You are afraid of failure and scared to have a go at the career you would like to have in case you don't succeed. Don't give up when you haven't yet even started! Be courageous. [actually i agree more with Ralph Waldo Emerson's quote on success. though okay yeah, i guess i'm afraid of failure.]

What are you most afraid of:

You are afraid of having no one to rely on in times of trouble. You don't ever want to be unable to take care of yourself. Independence is important to you. [hmmmm.. ah wells, at least i know i have friends i can count on :D]

Who is your true self:

You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice. People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues. Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve.
[hmmm i hope so :D haha though i usually use logic over feelings.]



and i realise the answers are pretty much the same. as in, they dont generate new stuff, the answers are a set few.





from the sermon on saturday:
not all anger is bad. righteous anger is acceptable, if it leads to betterment of oneself, improvements. and you are judged by what makes you angry. never thought about it this way. in some ways, you are charactised by what angers you.. say the millions of poor, hungry children in Africa. or the elderly getting cheated of their hard-earned money. or the pollution of the environment. etc
and i like going to olps (our lady of perpetual succour) for mass. really enlightens me somewhat, and fills me with zest to want to do something. to inquire more about my faith, to try to be a better Christian.

and i decided that i shall not regret the decisions i made anymore. i shall live my life happily and with fulfilment. just do my best, and leave everything else to God. He will decide what's best for me. and prayer is good cos even if no one else listens to you, you know He will. cos He loves us all, sinners though we are (:


and i suddenly feel like doing something andrenaline-pumping and exciting. something where i'm constantly on the move and doing something i love doing. something where i'll have lots of fun and thoroughly enjoy myself. any ideas, anyone?

tired! gonna ache tmr :/

ntu bike rally today was D:??!! slept 5 hours, then went to ECP Big Splash for registration. met up with juan and zong yi and after much ado, started off. on the longest cycling trail i (and the others) have ever gone for..

started off slightly past 7, and first stop was at Labrador Park. second stop NTU. third stop Kranji reservoir. fourth stop Serangoon stadium. next stop Changi Beach. back to ECP.


it was a reallly long ride. half the time we were wondering why the hell we ever signed up for it. or maybe it was just me.. the route was loong and boring. cycling on roads is exceedingly boring. mountain biking is much more exciting. a long and boring road (pretty much depicted my life, i thought hahah) and conversation a bit hard to carry out, so yeaps.

but it was uh, pretty fun? NTU to Kranji was just like avventura, the part from mandai to yishun. super long road with lots of ups and downs that i had lots of fun with, though i think the other two didnt really like it xD
halfway from kranji to serangoon it started raining. we were somewhere in lim/choa chu kang. but continued cycling. until it got seriously heavy, and so loads of us squashed into two miserable bus stops. and waited. and waited. cos the rain never ceased. then a lorry came to pick our bikes up, and a bus picked us up, and we got a ride to Serangoon Stadium :P where we stoned (and shivered) for about an hour. and we met dr loo, hahaha. before we got onto another bus to Changi. original route was serangoon then punggol? before changi then ecp. but it was getting late (about 4)

slept on the bus there. then we got off at changi beach and continued to ecp (: and yay we arrived at the finish line at 6pm on the dot! :D


so that concluded my highly uneventful sunday. and almost the whole time, i was just thinking of the opportunity cost of the bike rally :P


and the best part of it was, while the other two had their dad pick them home, my dad asked me to cycle home. wow whee(: but well, least my total distance travelled today totals slightly more than 100km :D



and now, i'm going to have serious muscle aches tomorrow. on the bright side, i dont have to run 6 km tmr heh :P

Saturday, March 14, 2009

come to a point where i'm even calculating the opportunity cost of blogging. should i blog or continue doing my tutorials?

since i have no other major commitments, getting good grades seem to be one of my major goals in jc. or maybe it's cos getting good grades is one of my major goals, i seem to shy away from major commitments. and sometimes i wonder if it's worth it.


and somehow, all that i talk about appears to be the same. the same topic revolving round and round. the same things to talk about to the same few friends. i sometimes wonder if they get bored. cos all we talk about is the same things. maybe once in a while new perspectives.



and somehow, in jc, i seem to mood swing more than ever. kay maybe not mood swing, but think radically different thoughts in a short span of time. maybe at one point in time, think that life is actually pretty okay, i could survive two years of this. and a while later, think that life sucks and that oh man, how to survive two years of mundaneness or whatever.




i mean, really, the thought of just studying everyday after school half appeals to the mugger side of me, but the other half (that craves busy-ness and excitement) dreads the thought. and it's making me feel like school is super sian.





went back to rg ytd for osl stuffs, and i really really miss rg. it gives me a sense of comfort and home that rj doesnt give me. looking at all them having fun, running around trying to do stuff, doing whatever they want without any restraints or worries about how others will judge them based on it, i feel rather envious. somehow, jc life feels rather unnatural to me. cant really be who you really are. and, whether you really want to or not, you're worried about your social image. whether you're perceived as cool or not. or stuff like. or maybe it's just me.




haha though to be the ultimate mugger, i've got a team raffles windbreaker from rsbs :P ah wells, muggers ftw (: closet or not haha.



and i guess there's really nothing much that i can do. just accept things to be the way they are, try to improve if possible, and just move on. meanwhile, tutorials and CTs await. and even though they're still pretty far away, and apparently so i heard, not counted, i'm really worried for it :/

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

not being in sth busy = having lots of time to think.


and so i've been thinking.



even though i'm not running for council, life's still pretty awesome. (that gives the assumption that council makes life awesome. which is not true.)
at least the friends i have are not dao-ing me, but are still nice and easy to talk to.
the friends you have really make the difference in your life.



and one can never be content. somehow, people always want more, and more. more "name", more reputation, more things to do, more hectic but "fulfilling" life, more anything and everything. when will we ever know what's enough? how are we to decide that? for even when we burn out and get tired of everything, at the end of the day, we look back and say "it's worth it:D" no matter.




and while in jc, people (or at least some people) seem to want to get busier and more involved and more known in sch, i seem to be doing the opposite. which is not all that bad i suppose, at least i manage to complete my work way before it's due.. unless it's sth i cant do.




bottomline, be happy and content with who you are and what you have. no point comparing, really. there's no end to it. and you'll never be happy.



and talking with shaina and liang si about anything and everything about jc life, it makes me wonder. what do people think of me, exactly? please do tell me(:

Sunday, March 08, 2009

term one's nearly over. first term in a jc. first term in being in a mixed environment, after 4 years of rg. first term of i dno, all things new. first time in a long time that i was actually pretty free at the start of the year. first time i actually started STUDYING way before exams. just to read up before lectures.


and i dno, somehow i still have a bit of this holiday mood. i keep having the feeling that this is temporary, like some exchange programme, and soon i'll be able to go back to rg or sth. somewhere more comfortable. it's really hard to imagine how i'm going to survive two years of this. though i suppose it's possible. it has to be.





anw a passage from the bible to share.
Jesus said to his disciples, "You have heard that it was said: Love your neighbour and do not do good to your enemy. But this I tell you: Love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be children of your Father in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on both the wicked and the good, and he gives rain to both the just and the unjust. If you love those who love you, what is special about that? Do not even tax collectors do as much? And if you are friendly only to your friends, what is so exceptional about that? Do not even pagans do as much? For your part you shall be righteous and perfect in the way your heavenly Father is righteous and perfect." - Gospel of Matthew 5:43-48





have a great week ahead(:

Friday, March 06, 2009

today was a pretty traumatizing day. pw was scary. reaally scary. imagine going up to present a topic (which you just read up on the night before) and then getting questioned in a really scary way to no end. and you just stand there, not knowing what to say. and econs lecture after that was slightly alarming too.

but on the other hand, bio prac was hilariously, painfully funny. got on a high (read hyperventilation and not thinking right) twice during the double block. the practical itself was a bit :/ and i never want to do it again. but haha, the conversations...




spent the afternoon doing up the df programme booklets. and "ushered" for df. but the plays were really quite good(: yay HH! it was rather emotional, i think. i was nearly in tears after that, haha. BB's was .. i didnt quite get it. BW's was pretty cool, heh the calefares xD MT's was funny! and MR's was spooky..













and i keep wondering, if i made the right choice. shouldnt bother, i know, cos there's nothing i can do about it. but still, i cant help but wonder, what if i didnt choose not to run for council.



walking around rj, i realise how big it is. and it just fills you with this sense of emptiness.

there's just this really queer feeling, when you see your friends having fun, but you're not.
or when you see other people making it, but you're not. dont really mind that much, after all it's a choice i made. but some times really cant be helped i guess. as much as you try, if others dont want to, then there's really no forcing it.




you just feel like you're slowly being left behind. or perhaps to be exact, it's more of a going different paths kind of feeling.

Thursday, March 05, 2009

finally, no more piano exams. kay so today's was pretty screwed up, played really badly and all, prob will fail (again, for the third time) but well, i'm done with abrsm. and now i can properly enjoy playing the piano, without the pain of taking exams(:



and i've finally decided. i'm not going to go for council. and this time it's really final. no more chance anymore. so if i regret the decision, there's nothing else i can do, except to live with my regret.
just gonna give this a shot. having done similar work for 2 years in rg, think i shall just try being a bit more slack and studies-focused these 2 years. or at least i try. well, for those who are going for it, all the best(:



and a little story told to us by our chinese teacher (translated in english and slightly abridged):
a $2 note may be crushed and crumpled. but at the end of it, it's still a $2 note.





just hope in the future.



Stay the Same - Joey Mcintyre
Chorus
Don't you ever wish you were someone else,
You were meant to be the way you are exactly.
Don't you ever say you don't like the way you are.When you learn to love yourself, you�re better off by far.
And I hope you always stay the same,cuz there�s nothin' 'bout you I would change.

Verse
I think that you could be whatever you wanted to be
If you could realize, all the dreams you have inside.
Don't be afraid if you've got something to say,
Just open up your heart and let it show you the way.

Chorus

Bridge
Believe in yourself.
Reach down inside.
The love you find will set you free.
Believe in yourself, you will come alive.
Have faith in what you do.
You'll make it through.

Chorus


when you think about it, life's really too short to worry so much. do what you want, try everything out. and live/leave with no regrets.
