bye bye normal teeth
Pardon me for the images that you are about to see. These are the last few moments of my normal teeth-life and smiling without feeling weird and eating with no worries.
I AM GOING TO PUT ON BRACES TMR!!!!
TOTALLY FREAKING OUT!!!!
I guess i don't want to put on braces, since i don't see any major problems with my teeth. But since it has already started, i might as well correct my not-so-pretty teeth. I can just imagine the pain and discomfort and disgust i might experience. Liquid diet is the last on my list. Hate the taste of metal and the protrusion they are gonna make. I'll look funny!YIKES!!! I really hope this dentist from Jurong Medical Centre does a good job with a clear conscience and don't overcharge me, because i have a low threshold for pain.
I AM GOING TO LOOK SO STRANGE!!!
Being so used to the way i look, i guess it takes a whole lot of time for myself to get accustomed to those silvery and shiny objects that are going to be stuck on my pearlies for a loooonnnnngggg time.
And this is how i look, fretting over my braces, eating woes and a possible jaw surgery.
Then i decided to smile for the camera so i can remember how i look.
JUST LIKE ANY NORMAL KID U SEE ON THE STREET RIGHT?!?!
With braces on, i don't think i can eat such cupcakes for the first week, since i took like 4 days to get used to my separators (and they are JUST separators!). Sigh. How to survive braces?
OK i may sound a little dramatic. You know what some people call braces? "Railroad tracks".
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Thanks lor.
In any case, i know how weird i am going to look, especially with the protrusion and the discomfort too. How am i going to teach in school? Can i even manage a smile? I don't know man, although everyone says braces are really no big deal. But this is just me, fretting over every single thing. I do hope the pain goes away real fast.
And i wanna eat normally. I realised that lots of places do not sell foods that are really soft or requires minimal chewing. So far i have generated a list of foods that i can eat without chewing so much.
I am so gonna need one of these. They are called the "USB Stress Panic Button".It is a system that works via USB and when you press the button there is a count down clock and a screensaver that takes over your monitor. Only USD16.
OK. GONNA GO TO SLEEP EARLY AND REVEL IN THESE HOURS BEFORE I MAKE THAT DAMN TRIP TO JMC. ALL THE BEST SHULI. YOU CAN DO IT ONE. OR TWO. OR THREE.

clubbing at dbl o on thu!
went clubbing at dbl 0 at mohammad sultan road on the eve of Good Friday. It was immensely fun and i danced ok! At least my moves are still acceptable. Saw many hot-blooded males trying to corner us but oh well, thank god for responsible and sweet guy friends!
Dbl O is quite a nice place, just that there were way too little seats. So we stood on our own two feet the whole night. Danced in front of the speakers too- that kind of left an impact on our poor ear drums. Then had a couple of drinks and ogled at men. Haha. The bartenders didn't look bad! They look uber sexy, just being at work.
Anyway, check out the pictures we tried to take in the super dark club with dazzling lights that threatened to blind all of us.
candice and me

Pre a-level jitters...
A level results will be out tmr, and well there are a thousand emotions going through me right now. I don't want to be flustered and so panicky, after listening to Yvonne last night. She was giving me her point of view about my situation that made me feel different.
She was telling me how i should not be feeling so gloomy and in such a low life condition because i am so worried about how i would do for my A levels. In fact, i should take on a more proactive role and be more positive about it. I should not let this affect me so much. It is ok to feel a little scared and worried, but i am trying to not let it eat me up.
People around me are saying many things, how they are feeling and what are their expectations. For me, i am just contented to get into NUS. Maybe i am not as ambitious? But having goals and dreams is not really being ambitious. Or perhaps i am just the type of person who goes with the flow and just hopes to keep my head above the water.
Guess i shall try to go into NJC campus tmr with a big heart, for the results have already been decided and printed on paper. There really is nothing much i can do except to go to school tmr and receive my results. Of course it will be easy to say that i should be relaxed and carefree about it, but then again i may behave differently when i am in school tmr. I am not calm at all, because i am really worried about my performance. It is a crucial turning point and stage in my life! Then i thought of how it is so taxing to moan and whine... there are others around me who are so good in their studies but i'm just like... normal.
Wonder if i should go get myself a bottle of Jim Bean today. Maybe it will come in handy on tmr night. And i should lock up all the windows and keep away all sharp objects.
OK I am freaking out for a moment.
Haiya. There is no point worrying so much now too. As F puts it, there will always be a way out. I shall see where my results will take me to. And i hope for the very best and the strength to take it all.
YOU CAN DO IT SHULI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

leap the year
Feb 29 has passed, and it was supposed to be the day where girls can propose to their boyfriends. For me, it was just any other day.
Feb 29 was the day where some parents welcomed their child into this world, sealing their fates with a very special birthday. Others chose to induce labour so that their child can have a normal birthday just like everyone else.
I wonder what is the significance of a leap year? The true and un-commercialised kind of meaning that our predecessors have created. It is said that a leap year is only a leap year when it can be divided by 100 and 400 years.
There is this whole romantic feeling this week, maybe due to the movie The Leap Years. I really wanted to catch it, but so far i have not. It seems like the conventional tear-jerker genre yet with a beautiful and melancholic storyline. Waiting to see if your heart was right for 24 years? I don't know if i am like Li-Ann, the protagonist of the movie. It all seems so sweet and lovely. Something out of the pages of a dreamy love story, which was written by Catherine Lim. Hmm... sounds good.
Anyway, i have been feeling melancholic too. Something is pulling me down and i try to raise myself up again. Added responsibilities and workload makes me a little breathless, and i shudder at the thought of having to deal with so many things. I am just glad that next week will be the school March holidays, so i can recuperate and perhaps sit in solitude and think things through.
No wonder so many urbanites crave to get out if Singapore and chose to reside overseas instead. Read the papers this morning and realised that many Singaporeans who chose to live overseas mostly have the same rationale: our society is too intolerant of mistakes and moves too fast. You never get spared from a typo error. You never get forgiven if you blundered. On the surface, everything seems peachy and rosy. But we are all too sure about how we will end up if we fall short of expectations. That is indeed a scary thought.
If i ever have a chance to venture abroad, i would choose Australia. Perhaps the US too. To live a life way different from the model life that we have all been living since the day we arrived in this world. It is a nice dream to have, but it wil definitely take a lot to realise it.
Before i get carried away, i guess it is ok to live within our means. To eat what we can, say what we can and live the way we can.
