*Severe self-psycho-ing in process..

My favourite Chinese New Year is coming yet I don't seem to have the time to welcome it properly. Reason being.. I can't seem to find a day within these two weeks to have a day of spring cleaning and I'm afraid I would only be able to do it only on 5th Feb 07, which seems like a little too late. But I guess if there's really no choice.. 27th Jan, 5th Feb or 6th Feb would be the only few days to choose from or I'll just spread out my spring cleaning across these three days.

I am currently broke. and I never felt so broke before. Had no choice but to turn to giving tuition. Started last week. Took up two Primary 4 kids. The boy is beginning to get naughty and the girl is still alright.
With the bank job every Sat and my two tuition kids, the only entire free days I have left currently are Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday. zzz.

Things I need to do:
1. Retail therapy and shopping for some clothes/accessories for CNY at BUGIS. It's been ages since I stepped into Bugis and it's SERIOUSLY time I do so..
2. Spring cleaning.
3. Settle my parts of the project asap.
4. Study!!
5. Find a day to fulfil all our common wish of going KBox/PartyWorld.

I vividly remember that day in my second year of JC when I was suffering from the great pain of the eruption of my first wisdom tooth at the bottom left corner. We had GP and Economics lessons that day and throughout at least that two hours of lessons, I was literally a water bucket who kept drinking water non-stop in hope of reducing the pain. I ended up having to go to the washroom every half an hour, at the same time, to refill my water bottle at the water cooler. That "first time" was simply memorable. I'm sure Julia remembers it well too. haha. and I had that first wisdom tooth extracted out eventually.

Just one week ago, my second wisdom tooth began erupting at the bottom right corner. However, it wasn't as painful as the first time round. With the timely dental checkup yesterday, the dentist said she should be able to get it out and hence I decided to be a brave girl

and so that second wisdom tooth was successfully extracted.
Actually, my main intention of extracting it out yesterday was so that I could be relieved from the occasional pain this second wisdom tooth was giving me. In this way, I will be able to eat my Chinese New Year goodies happily when February arrives. HAHA.

With the anaesthetic in effect, I did not feel the pain only after about 2+ hours. Why is the first day of tooth extraction so unbearable! :( With blood bleeding in your mouth and the pain strikingly hitting you despite the little help given by the biting down on a gauze at the injury site, it was not easy to have a good night's sleep. Thank god the pain subsided substantially today morning. At least I was able to talk without much pain when I was working. not sure if it's due to the effect of the Panadol I took this morning just before going to work. In any case, Panadol Extra is quite a must-have after tooth extraction! >.<

School's starting on Monday. Mixed feelings. I guess, with school starting, I will be able to stop feeling so bored since I turned into a couch potato whenever I'm at home and I will be able to learn new things as this semester's modules seem interesting and could be useful to my life. To join any CCA? Maybe!

However, with individual and group assignments, class tests and exams which will load up gradually, that time of the semester will come again when we will start screaming for time to pass more slowly.

Before I leave to continue watching My Lucky Star (Fang Yang De Xing Xing), I have finally understood and learnt to play the addictive game called Mahjong just a few days before 2007 ended! And now I understand why people can get so addicted to that game. xD

Alright then, till next time.

P.S. Time for a change of blogskin.

Happy New Year!!

My apologies for being a little late. I just hope that this would be a great year ahead for each and everyone of us.. Year 2007 had been a better year than 2006 for me and I do hope that 2008 would be better than 2007!

2007 had past in a blink of an eye and I must say it had been a year with many moments worth remembering.

To my family: Thank you, especially to my mum and two sisters, for being there and being supportive during that difficult few months of the year.

To my dearest friends: Thank you all in every way, be it to my new friends whom I made in SIM or friends whom I have already known for as long as from my secondary school days till today.

Lastly, 2007 has also been the year where I finally managed to put away that painful matter and proudly tell myself to move on for it would be a better year ahead. My blessings to you and your family..
With that said,
Year 2008 would be a wonderful year ahead!!
