It's all about 278 and 250!Last Saturday, at my sis' place:
[Stared at the laptop screen blankly]
Okay..start the Appendix NOW! But how to sort them out?
Three main projects in one report... imagine the attachments
Oww ... and add the survey as well k!
Aha *fingers snapped*...
[Asked Nophie to pass me her pen and paper]
Jotted down some notes, categorized the attachments *headache headache*
Went to bed at around 3amSunday, at *bucks Wisma Atria, 2pm:
[All gathered and sat at one small table with a laptop and notes all over]
Let's edit the report. Grammar, language, style, format, category and arrangement....
Owh..so many things to edit.
Cut out the redundancy, destroyed the crap, revised the references, checked the grammar, made it easier to read and understand, starved till death but still needed to hang on ...
Proposed the appendix arrangement and they agreed.. *yeay*
Pronounced brain-dead at 5plus, so we decided to do it on our own by 6pm. Called it off and brought back the work babes! Let's meet again on Monday yar...
Went to the food court below Lee Meridien for a dinner with Nophie n her friends :)
It's great to have her back in my life...well, I mean physically here lar.
Returned to sis place at around 9pm, and started doing the project from 10pm onwards.
Went to dreamland at around 3am again!Monday, at *bucks City Hall, 10am:
It was raining outside and I had to force myself to wake up at 8.30am.
Oh no, I was late for my visa application. Sigh~
hope I could still make it in time
Rushed out and walked under the rain at 9.15am. Took the train to Raffles Place.
Called the Embassy of Ukraine:"Hi, can I check on what are the documents needed to apply for a visa?""I am sorry, our consular is not here yet. Maybe in 10-15 minutes time.""Owh, but can you tell me what I need to bring over?""No, you need to check with the consular!"-___-''
So I arrived 10 minutes before 10am (I took the risk of being sligthly late than having to plan for another trip). Standing there, the staff greeted me by telling me the consular was not in yet. Please wait for 10-15 minutes, he should be here by then. SHOULD BE~
Ouch..and I had my meeting at 10am. He told me to go for my meeting instead ^^''
Arrived at *bucks at 10am sharp and I was the earliest. Quickly hogged a table at the corner with a power point for our laptops. The ladies started to arrive a few minutes later.
Major editing was done again, changed the format and structure. Paraphrased the sentences to save space. Waks..and my part needed major 'reconstruction' for sure... it's just too many things happened and it kinda repetitive then.
Stayed till 14.30 before we decided to do it at home. Apparently our 'battery' can only last around 3 hours.
At 6pm, I was sitting in front of my computer, trying hard to add some necessary details into the report while re-arrange some sections. CUT CUT CUT!! And I almost fell asleep while doing it.
Took a short nap to recharge myself, but I overslept till 11pm when someone knocked on the door and Lele was about to sleep. So, there it went... stayed till 4am to do the Appendix.Tuesday, woke up at 9am:
My second trip to the Embassy of Ukraine. And sadly, my invitation letter was not comprehensive enough."It seems to me you're going there for relaxation."Heh? (mind-boggling here..so what if I spend money in your country? no tourist allowed?)I'm going to teach English and do some cultural sharing."It's not clear here. I can't accept this."Rawrrr....
Frustrated me returned to NTU and attended my Japanese class *good news, I didn't feel sleepy that day*
Unfortunately the game was ON. And my whole Appendix was destroyed. It went corrupted. ARGHHHH *pulled my hair out...
shiett...the whole 190 over pages were gone..gone..gone..
Oops..I did it (the appendix) again then!
ZZZ at 3am plus when I finished another draft of the Appendix.Wednesday, meeting in SCI benches at 12noon:
Tiredly woke up at 10.30am.
Let's check my Appendix, see if there were any errors.WAKS......ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
It happened AGAIN. My Appendix files (note here 'FILES') all went corrupted. Big shiet!!
I was not sure whether to laugh at myself or to cry. SMS-ed my friends to tell them the news AGAIN. No choice but to do it AGAIN.
Afraid of the viruses in my pc, I went to school and did my Appendix there. Thanks that I have saved another Appendix file, although it's incomplete. At least I did not have to start from scratch AGAIN. Spent the whole afternoon in school, and proudly finished it by 6pm. Sent a copy to each of my teammates.
"Tomorrow is the day." Imagine the havoc we had. From cutting the pages to 59 from 74, aligning it to APA Style *which we realized was a concern at 10pm*,
rechecked and revised the format and structure... I ended up staying till almost 5am in the morning before I gave up.Thursday, the day, 10.30am:
Sat in front of the computer and continued where I finished this morning. The format was terrible with all the images jumbled up here and there. Geezz~
Met up with the team at school to print out everything and do last-minute checking.
wrong alignment - check
incorrect punctuation - check
report format - check
wordy sentence - check
At 2pm, we decided to split and print the Appendices. In need of a colour printer, we decided to try the General Office printer. We succeeded, except the fact that it's expensive. In our school, each student received so-called '$50 virtual cash' for printing. So, everytime you print, they will deduct your account. Cherie's account was busted and we did not have enough money in our accounts.
The printing went chaotic as we need to separate between b/w and colour printing to save money (note: printing at General Office cost you a fortune as it's based on colour printing charges). Imagine printing three copies of the reports, split between b/w and colours and added with some weird alignments by the computer that ended up with useless copies. It was horrible!
In the end, after a countless trips from CATIlab to General Office, ran here and there, clicked here and there, sorted this and that, noted this and that, asked people to donate their accounts (for printing) ... we finished them at 6pm. Phew~
Oww..apparently, the technician said we are NOT allowed to print colour in school (what? you're kidding right? we pay for this too ok!), telling that it is only for special projects. Heh? So our final year project is not special, and we have to spend hundreds just to print this?
who cares...we just continued haha
But seriously, I think those who don't know, they might spends ALOT just to print three copies of the report.
Looking back....here are the outcomes:
- 278 pages of report
(times three for 3 copies, added with error printing. Count how many trees have we killed today! and we're not the ONLY group.)
- over $250 for printing and binding
(although around $225 is merely 'virtual cash'...imagine how many accounts we stole from)
- tons of stressed and surprises
(ups down ups down ups down)
- the twinkles on our eyes after we submitted the report
(yeay...we made it gals!)
- it's just a month from now...HANG ON
Our presentation is on 16th April. Need to work hard for this too. Pray hard that we scored for our FYP ya. Pray really hard, I beg you.
Exams are on 20th and 25th April.
ASEAN Ministerial Meeting on Youth is on 26th and 27th April.
I'm flying off on 28th, if I got my visa *pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee*
Gosh....need to do my Japanese homework now before I took my beauty sleep
ps: If you looked into a mirror and found a 'panda' there...worry not, you're not alone!

Let's meet Water Wally
Slept at 2am...
Woke up at 7am...
Rushed to shower and then ZOOM....to Suntec Olio Dome *my first time there
Well, 22nd of March was World Water Day. So, in conjunction with that, PUB *it's not Public Utility Board k, remember WATER*
launches PURE, a street-magazine. My Event Managemen class had the chance to conceptualize and organize the event with PUB.
24 Communication Studies students were divided into 4 teams -Programme, Public Relations/On-ground Branding, Media and Evaluation. Well....'luckily', we were the Media Team. The most 'diligent' or most 'work' team :( From writing media invite, media release, contacting the youth media (thanks to PUB for taking over the mainstream media), follow-up, brief the media on the event day, and again...follow-up after the event. Gosh, and all these within 2 weeks time.
It was another great experience to work with a government body and moreover to learn on how to handle a 'launch event'. Can't imagine I briefed the reporters and photographers *yippee..haha*,
talked to Dr Amy Khor, hugged Water Wally *haha*,
in the same room as Adrian Pang and Michelle Chia *well, we did take a pic*,
and had great lunch *slurpee*
We were initially allocated ONLY 2 tables of 8 seats for the media, but we needed over 3 tables to cater to them all *smug face*.
Owh..and I appeared on TV too *haha although I didn't watch myself on TV*.
Suddenly I received SMSes asking if I were the one on CNA and Channel 5 *haha*.
15 seconds of fame which cost me to lose a chance to take pics with Michelle Chia and Adrian Pang -___-''
Let me say it again: " MICHELLE CHIA IS HOT HOT HOT." She is not skinny or worse anorexic, she is FIT and HEALTHY and SEXY. Gosh... some of us will kill to get that bod. But she is not just about bod and beauty, she is smart and articulate. wow...
When Water Wally meets his soulmate.... introducing: Water Sally *hahaha..my Media teammates start calling me this. They said I look like Water Wally ^^''
For more info of the event, click here.
I know this is an unorganized post..haha no choice, I need to do my report again and other things to settle.
Counting down....1 month 3 days.

In between those piles of notes and papers...
In between those thousands of words on my Words document...
In between those Windows opened in search for references *haha*....
I took a break...
and did this -__-''
*************************************************************************You Are a Chocolate Chip Cookie(I like cookie... and I like choco too, so a great combo for me)
Traditional and conservative, most people find you comforting.(I think I am conservative...true!)
You're friendly and easy to get to know.(People say I look fierce when I don't smile ^6 but well, it's for you to find out then)
This makes you very popular - without even trying!(Waaawww... arigatou gozaimasu...xie xie..kamsa hamida...gracias...spasibo...thanks...kamsia...)You Are 20% Normal(I did this to seriously test how normal I am...haha)
You sure do march to your own beat...But you're so weird, people wonder if it's a beat at all.
You think on a totally different wavelength, And it's often a chore to get people to understand you.(eh...now I don't get this. Beat? what beat? wavelength? ah ok, I am only 20% normal..and it takes heaps of effort to understand me... work hard ya!)You Have Low Self Esteem 28% of the Time (means 72% of confidence?)
Generally, you feel pretty darn great about who you are, even when you mess up or fail.(owh ya, of course. If I do my very best and stay away from shoo-pid things haha)
Occasionally, a huge setback will make you question yourself, but you pick yourself up quickly.(hm...reflecting mode... Dont think it's as easy as how they put it here. Just keep on striving then *sigh)You Are Banana Pocky(shit is banana....ah ya na ya na ya na. If A = B, and B=A. So, Banana = shit, and shit = banana?)
Your attitude: fun and lighthearted.(great....my head is getting bigger now)
Unique and unforgettable.(hm...please remember the good sides of me..okie okie okie?)
You are cutie everyone falls for.(sheepish...)
And out of curiousity, I tried the 5 characters of love or suuuuummthing like dat ^^Propensity for Monogamy:
Your propensity for monogamy is high.
You find it easy to be devoted and loyal to one person.
And in return, you expect the same from who you love.
Any sign of straying, and you'll end things *wave my hand gracefully...byeeeExperience Level:
Your experience level is high.
You've loved, lost, and loved again.
You have had a wide range of love experiences *waks...where is this claim from? -__-''
And when the real thing comes along, you know it!Dominance:
Your dominance is low.
This doesn't mean you're a doormat, just balanced.
You know a relationship is not about getting your way.
And you love to give your sweetie a lot of freedom *and expect the same in return...and thus the independence level belowCynicism:
Your cynicism is medium.
You'd like to believe in true and everlasting love...
But you've definitely been burned enough to know better.
You're still an optimist, but you also are a realist *welcome to real world peeps...welcome to my life
Your independence is high.
You don't need to be in love, and sometimes you don't even want love.
Having your own life is very important for you...
Even more important than having a relationship *hee...ok, now no one is gonna apply ady haha jk. Life is tough heh!OK, time for my beauty sleep and get ready for the PUB event

1.5 month is short
Things to do in less than 1.5 month:
- Final Year Report due next Thursday *shiet..need to redo my whole Appendix, can't open it*
- Event Management Project this Thursday *let's meet Dr Amy Khor, Adrian Pang, Michelle Chia and Water Wally haha*
- Japanese oral test *taihen desu ne*
- Final exam *gotta start gotta start...but when?*
Quickly finish this and move on... Say bye say bye :)
- LC Transition Booklet, by 5th April
- LC Transition ppt *oh..long flight..please save me*
- Update AIESEC SOGA file
- Finish LC NTU Balance Score Card & CSFs
- AGM on Saturday, 24th March
- Corporate Breakfast, 28th March
- Finance workshop, 31st March
- LC Executive Board Bonding session, 31st March
Not being able to do proper transition with the new EB team, to support the members for the upcoming 'are you afrAIDS' event, to miss the Asia Pacific MC Transition Camp in Malaysia, to leave before the official ending of the term, .... I feel horrible. Blue oh so blue... Preparation to Ukraine:
- Booking of ticket - done
- Insurance letter - emailed Mr Lai alrd
- Health check-up
- Visa application
- Learn some basic language
- Prepare Spore presentation
- Learn how to cook Asian food *er...haha
- Go down to STB and get some materials *be generous please..hiks hiks
Super-excited to be able to move on to another stage of my AIESEC XP. To really experience myself what it is like to go for an overseas internship, to proudly share about your country/culture/people, to make direct impacts on those people you meet in your journey,...
Everythig comes with a price to pay.... but guess it all worths it.Life:
- Pack and move out *I hate packing and worse for unpacking
- Job search?
- Social life... *exploit my sis haha
The thought of packing my 'assets' after staying in NTU for almost 4 years is scary. I have no idea how long I will take, how many bags and boxes for all, how to move them all, and how to 'leave behind' things that may not be that useful anymore in the future... In less than 1.5month, I am leaving to Ukraine and will stay there for almost 3 months.
Thanks much roomie for all the things you've done. We are both busy people. A year spent in the same room, but many times it's not occupied by both of us. From Poland-Msia-Indo trips. But I am very grateful that I had the chance to stay with you and spend those times together. Keep striving!Friends... gambarimasyou!
In 1.5month, I will fly my way to a new land alone. I may be the one to represent Singapore, to represent Indonesia or even Malaysia... or maybe I will be the one to represent Asia. Wish I could do the very best.
I am leaving for that period, but rest-assured... I will COME BACK! and I hope...you guys are stronger and better than ever by then.

laptop is in the house...
I'll be able to get my new laptop... after I demanded for compensation if they couldn't give it to me by today.
Yosh NTU peeps, you can get compensation if you couldn't get your order in 2 weeks time from '8'FlaGz. And this surely works...
Sorry, we haven't gotten your order here.So, when can I get it? It's been two weeks since I placed my order.
Maybe next week.When?
I dunno.then her colleague took over...
Sorry but we do not have your laptop here yet.So, next week by when can I get it?
I dunno. See *now she showed me a stack of order forms from the students*,
actually there are alot more who ordered before you...Yes I understand, but that is NOT my issue.I read in your website that your company will compensate if you couldn't deliver your order in 2 weeks time.Her friend kept nodding to approve my claim...
Please wait..I check with Amy *her supervisor*
Then Amy came:
Hi Diana, let me check the status for youYes please
After several minutes, she came back and...
Hi, we will give you other people's laptop first *raised my eyebrows*
In fact some people have not collected their laptops after a week's notification... *aiya...watever lar*Okay then, I'll come back tomorrow with my order slip
Yes, and we only receive cheque or cashWill do. But I'll definitely get my specifications and my additional RAM right?
Don't worry, we have it.

Branding, Innovation and Social Responsibility workhop
Did I mention about my AIESEC NTU workshop before?
The one where we got both cash sponsorhip as well as venue sponsorship?
And not to forget, 3 prominent speakers from its field?
Not to be missed: A famous strong lady to chair our panel session?
Well, it finally happened last Saturday - 3 March 2007.
AIESEC in NTU is proud to present a workshop on ‘Branding, Innovation and Social Responsibility’ that features prominent speakers of Mr. Hermawan Kartajaya, the president of the World Marketing Association, Assoc Prof Hooi Den Huan, Associate Dean [Corporate Services] from Nanyang Business School and Assoc Prof Wan Chew Yoong, Acting Head, Marketing and International Business, Nanyang Business School.
We are honoured to have Ms. Claire Chiang, Ms Claire Chiang , the Senior Vice President of Retail Operations, Banyan Tree Holdings Pte Ltd and the president of Singapore Compact for Corporate Social Responsibility to chair the Q&A session.
The audience..okay, this is incomplete ^.*
I'd like to thank our sponsors for enabling us to make this event happened too: CPA Australia and Singapore Compact.
The Organizing Committee deserves a round of applause and a real pat on the shoulder for doing such an amazing work. They must have learned alot during the process: taking into account my 'nagging', meetings with Prof Hooi, the team and the Preparation Seminar team coz it's a dual event, my constant emails asking for information and updates, the strict visual guidelines of AIESEC and the sponsors, the endless emails with the speakers and sponsors and many more. I am really really proud of you guys....such an independent committee that I can rely too. Thanks for making my stay in @NTU worthwhile. Lucia, Anubhav, Grace, Wira, Chewy, Lita, Hazel, Jun Ming, Haoyang, Boon Ming, Alvin, Pang...you guys are our real assets. Keep the great work k!
The great OC team and the speakers.. *woo hoo
Time for some actions baybeh!
Great thanks and congratulations to the Preparation Seminar OC team too. The emcees, Celine and Aaron for accommodating our requests. The AIESEC members, the Member Committee of AIESEC in Singapore, the Student Nominees, the NTU students and members of public....thanks for making this happened.
The event was a full house, that we even prayed that some people who have bought the tickets would not turn up. The place was nice with Singapore River and Esplanade as its view. We had the Sky Garden at the side too *haha and we made full use of this place to take crazy pics for sure.
The girls' power! *Chewy...we can edit you in ^^
The speakers were very happy to be part of our event. Everything went smoothly, no major incident or error happened. They were impressed by our professionalism. The audience found the workshop as insightful, some even said that 'It probes me to contemplate'. Amazing!! And yeah..I couldn't stop smiling whole day because of that.
I am really really lost beyond words to explain how proud I am with my members. They have grown alot during this 3 months preparation period. From knowing nothing about organizing an event, they learnt all the small nitty gritty details. Well...I was a biatch too when it comes to some incidents where we had to accommodate last minutes changes and requests. Sorry ar, but I won't let my team being 'bullied' too *huh...
Here is the team, minus Chewy, Alvin, Haoyang, Boon Ming and Pang.
Seriously....This makes my journey as Local Committee President [LCP] of AIESEC NTU more colourful. Too bad if you missed it... AIESEC can only do so much in providing you with all the platforms and opportunities, whether you take it or not... It's up to you!
So, yeah..it's great, we know. What else can I ask, you guess?
My freakin precious pic ^^
A reply on my mailbox:
"You are great organiser.
I also saw your leadership.
I am proud of you Diana.
Keep in touch."
Sent from my BlackBerry® wireless device from XL GPRS network
ps: In case you have no idea who is HK.... He is Pak Hermawan Kartajaya... *awgghhhhhhh can't stop smiling, smug face now.
GUYS, it's GREAT to be an LCP!

Sentosa...here we go!
My first Sentosa trip for the year 2007.
If you'd let me to give you some advice, do go to Sentosa on weekday and NOT weekend. It's less crowded and thus hopefully higher level of enjoyment. Ow..and now they have a 'train' from Vivocity to Sentosa, and that's cool. No need to queue for buses or ticket and you save time. Not to mention that it comes with air-conditioner.
How lucky we were that Sentosa was having a flower exhibition. It's much prettier and colourful than usual. At least I know what to show inside Sentosa than just its beaches or expensive attractions.
So, here we go....
It's Humpty Dumpty falling onto the ground. Poor you!
It's not fun without pics, so I took Itsumi's pic while she's adjusting the timer ^^
Bla bla white sheep...
Even on the tram, there's this sign. What a FINE city :)
Sit down Itsumi, no standing. Shhsstt...hide your doggie, and throw away those ciggies!
This was my first time at Palawan Beach and it's so much better than Siloso. Less people, great scenery, and yeah...cool bridge!
See this? trust me now?...
Owh..this one was taken at Chinatown. Itsumi just had her temporary-sprayed-Henna-tattoo on. Makes me wanna get a real one too haha..
Well, my camera was playing a prank at me. The battery went dry at this crucial moment. Limited pics saved on it. Geez...
Cya again in Nagoya....

Chingay oh Chingay
I've spent three Februaries *if there's such word* in Singapore, and thus far I never miss the Chingay Parade albeit the complaints that came out from my lips.
It is Asia's grandest floating parade or that's how they boast themselves. Well, the whole Orchard Road was blocked for at least two days just for Chingay to take place *so yah..it's huge event*.
My first Chingay was when I sat on the roadside and saw Jackie Chan in his white suit flashing his smiles. It was cool as everyone can join in the parade for free. Just grab any space and enjoy!
So, for my second Chingay, I had the same expectation. Just go early and get a great place to view it. But I was wrong. That time round, they baricade the roadside and only those with tickets could go in, although you could still watch it from the roadside and smell the one next to you at the same time. It was free entertainment, who doesn't want to miss free stuff in Singapore? Too bad, I was surrounded by many ang-mohs and I could barely see the parade and performances under the 'crying sky'.
Thanks gosh, I got free tickets from AIESEC for my third Chingay. Without a doubt, I took the chance to invite my sis, Nophie, my Japanese friend/sister, Itsumi and Oscar along. Well, I was left with six extra tickets on my hands as they had things going on and had to give it a miss.
So, there we were...sitting on the half-wet-half-dry floor in front of a group-of-super-loud-young-teens-who-kept-moving-forward and behind a couple-who-was-very-annoyed-and-freaking-pissed *hahaha*. Nice combo!
We waited for more than 1.5 hours before the parade really began. Geez..it was quite dry initially 'coz they stopped performing when they arrived at our area *we were sitting quite a distance from those VIPs seats* and as we all could notice, no one really responded to the performers too. No claps, no screams, no crazy stunts from the audience... Poor guys!
As the night walked away, we slowly found it more appealing when we started running to the front row and took pictures with the performers. Who cares about the crowd controller? It's hell no FUN sitting there watching them 'dancing and entertaining' us. It was a warm night and Itsumi could not really take it I suppose. But she did have lotsa fun too. Look at her stunts below!
The colourful parade! *yee haa..
From gymnasts, dancers, soldiers, robots to silver men...
And you think carrying this is easy? Think again..
It was scary *haha..my first time trying it*
Itsumi was scared to death when the guy just grabbed her and asked her to do it..
and later pushed her to run away from us!
Yup *nod nod* being there for your friends!
Where shall we go? Japan? Vietnam? Rusia? Turkey?
Owh...we're still in Singapore *sigh
Naruto was so shocked when the three of them *means NOT me* shouted their lungs out for 'Naruto' at the post-parade party. Wakaka...should see his face lar!
When the fun starts, we won't let you kiss him Itsumi! *haha

I am bored..again! I gotta admit that I am easily bored.
I dislike writing report...again! And again, I dislike writing report, especially when there are so many things to put down that I have no idea how to put and organize the points nicely and make it readers-friendly.
So now I am bored and I dislike writing report. Therefore, I decided to update the blog to avoid writing report and make me feel less bored??
Well, my Japanese friends just paid me a visit a few days back. I was busy being a tour guide and did not have time to do my things [especially when you do not have a laptop to carry around]. We travelled to numerous places in Singapore, managed to find some cool places that I never knew existed before *haha*
and yeah..I had lotsa fun albeit the burning hole on my purse. I will update again on this with her pics ^^ coz now I have to go back to report. Sigh~
Owh...If you think our daily products are genderless, think again!FREEZER BAGS:
They are male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.PHOTOCOPIERS:
These are female, because once turned off; it takes a while to warm them up again. They are an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can also wreak havoc if you push the wrong buttons.TIRES:
Tires are male, because they go bald easily and are often over inflated.HOT AIR BALLOONS:
Also a male object, because to get them to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under their butt.SPONGES:
These are female, because they are soft, squeezable and retain water.WEB PAGES:
Female, because they're constantly being looked at and frequently getting hit on.TRAINS:
Definitely male, because they always use the same old lines for picking up people.EGG TIMERS:
Egg timers are female because, over time, all the weight shifts to the bottom.HAMMERS:
Male, because in the last 5000 years, they've hardly changed at all, and are occasionally handy to have around.THE REMOTE CONTROL:
Female. Ha! You probably thought it would be male, but consider this: It easily gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know which buttons to push, he just keeps trying.
