While we're on the topic of Chinese New Year and his Angpows, I've got $58 this year, which has got to be one of the most I've got. Yeah. Even my neighbour whose parents don't earn as much as mine has $200 only from his father. Yeah. If I had that much I'll be a thousandaire by now. Unfortunately I'm still only a hundredaire, which is the result of saving money and those hungry days at my Junior College...no, actually their food sucked. So much so as to make me feel nauseous. I'm really a guy who saves money as much as possible. Money is the root of all EViL, but a money plant ain't got EViL roots anyways. I'll tell you what is the root of all EViL. People. Humans. Homo Sapiens. Fleshy four-limbed beige-coloured lumps with a hard extra object attached to it which contains THE root of ALL EViL...and it ain't got any roots at all.
Returning to my original subject, the first thing we went to was...my JC. Fortunately we didn't stop and we went to Jalan Kayu to get some prata. After that we went north, past Tampines Expressway (TPE), and into Picadilly Circuis!?
Well, that's supposed to be in England. Actually, it's near Seletar Airport... you go in there and see. All the street names there are named after England street names. Even the surroundings, roads, houses and lamp posts looked like as if they were from England. You certainly wouldn't believe that was Singapore. We speculated for quite a while, visited the Seletar Airport...which contained old planes. How did I know? They were planes which used propellers. Yeah. Those with two or four propellers on the wings. AND they aren't private planes. They looked as if they could carry 200 people, which reminded me about Transport Tycoon. Never mind if you don't know.
Then we carried on to Punggol and its really wowwing MRT station. It was big, majestic, high-tech looking, and...empty. I decided to visit its temporary bus interchange for service guides (heh heh) and I had to use an underpass which looked like it was built for display. You imagine...I was walking through it and my legs caught on spiderwebs!...However, the automatic doors were nice, folding inwards when you approached them. By the way, the station IS in operation.
Then we went more eastward, and northward to Changi Village. There was a bus terminal there, but no service guides... :( Perhaps it's because the supposed control room looked like a portable toilet. We had a walk there, looked around the strait between Singapore and Malaysia (or is it Pulau Ubin) and did some exercise after sitting around for too long. Exercise also included moving the mouth to munch on some ice-cream. Yeah, munch.
After all that uninteresting Northeast exploration, we returned to the vehicle exploration. We went even more Eastward and Northward (don't worry, we haven't reached the sea yet), so much so that we were even more Eastward and Northward than Changi Airport. Yeah, I did mention that we travelled to both airports today...although we didn't really go in. There was this really really long main road to the east of Changi Airport. It was straight, too, and if you looked down the road from the beginning it would look like a tunnel as trees covered the top from both sides. It's a really nice avenue. For some reason they named the road Changi Coast Road. If I'd seen any coast Changi Airport would be underwater.
So yay, we all returned home via East Coast Parkway (ECP) and that was somewhere uninteresting as I have travelled along it numerous times, so I fell asleep. Hooray. So I've learnt something about Singapore. You should too. Yeah, I had another dream last night.
Just joking. Good dreams are rare. Good Evening for now.

AND I'm in a state of Nevilinity. (for the meaning of Nevilinity, check previous posts, it's got to be somewhere here) It's Chinese new year...yeah. AND I get little money...oh well don't discuss it. It's because my relatives are all not in Singapore. They're in Hong Kong, Australia, United States...but not in Singapore. BUT that does not matter. So long as I am in Singapore, I'll be willing to stay here. In Dairy Farm Estate. Ha.
It's a break for me...and my battered body. I have, uh, gone through the thick and thin of my propagandic school, and their batch of crazy tutors. I believe, with whatever result I will get for my 'O' Levels, I'm not going back there. Serious.
Talking about 'O' Levels, the release of the results are only about 2 weeks away. I start to worry now, but for what anyways. So I say yeah to myself, forget it, continue playing Legend of the Green Dragon, and surf SgForums even though you may say I'm stupid. I don't mind. Really. What I mind more is trying to get all those bus service guides available. I've almost covered the whole of the West Singapore's bus terminals and interchanges. That includes Woodlands, Bukit Panjang, Bukit Batok, Choa Chu Kang, Jurong East, Boon Lay, Clementi...and Sembawang and Yishun from the East. What irritates me most was service 77 from Bukit Batok to Marina Centre. You don't expect me to go to Marina Centre to get a bus guide unless I'm doing shopping which is really very rare unless I go to Kinokuniya and go search for new pens but that's not the point. I went to Bukit Batok Interchange twice in 2 days and still no 77 service guides!! I asked the guy from SgForums, he said there were sv. 77 guides there. So the first time I went there, I searched but didn't find any sv. 77 guides. I only found sv. 177, 173, etc...I went home and said it wasn't there. He said, it was hidden between the other guides, and he was 100% sure it was. I cursed to myself, why didn't I search more thoroughly? So the next day I went there, preparing to search every single service guide rack...and I found them ALL empty! ALL empty! I mean, there were 4 full stacks the previous day, and now they're all empty! So I asked the office and they said they didn't have any...oh well. I have to wait for more news. I'll tell you if I get it. Sometimes, it's really disgusting.
What? Do I hear you asking what I'm doing this for? OK, I do this for fun...collection. It's a challenge. Although they're free, you need to go all over Singapore Island to get them. AND when you get them and keep them, they're worth some ehhherm...cash in the future. You know, I've seen pictures of service guides 10 years ago and my fingers start getting itchy, and itchy refers to touching the service guides, not anything else you may had intentions of thinking. I only I collected those guides then...OK, stop thinking about it.
BUT it's quite weird. It's a weird cycle. AND I know many people can't spell weird, but that's out of point. You imagine, I didn't want to go to this school, I didn't need to, but I went, and I still don't want to, but if it wasn't for it I wouldn't have gone to Woodlands Regional Interchange every day and find a whole big stack of service guides as Woodlands has one of the most bus services in its Interchange, and if it weren't for that I wouldn't go all over Singapore (or rather, the west of Singapore) to look of those danged bus guides.
It's a personal interest, and yay, you get to know more about me. And oh yeah, I had a dream last night.
I was trying to drive a car. What the hell. Ok, this car really sucked in handling and I was hitting the walls everywhere but that didn't mind. Then I drove up this bridge like Benjamin Sheares Bridge (Benjamin Sheares Bridge is in Singapore, for your info, but I was definitely wasn't in Singapore), and erm, there was this blank space that I forgot what happened. Then I got off the car and saw erm, Yongwen driving a car too. There was this whole lot of people learning how to drive cars and Yongwen was sort of, abusing his advantage to drive. One of the mothers of another learner who was fat (the mother was fat) scolded at Yongwen dunno for what. Yongwen threw something at her (looked like my tissue paper used to contain my mucus) and they started fighting. Then he got away and ran because everybody was hunting for him. They ran through this, erm, corridor with a high ceiling and wide path. I was told to stop him by running to a switch and pulling down a gate so he couldn't get through and I went there but then I felt I was betraying people from my own school then I woke up.
~-End of Dream-~
Haha. Weird. So stay here and visit every half month and you shall see...my erm turbulent life...in the state of Nevilinity...

Recently, I have been collecting SMRT guides everywhere...trying to get every one. Unfortunately one of the services, 175, was removed, so its guides were also removed. I had to go to MRT stations I've never been before...like Yishun and Sembawang...I don't take the MRT often you know...those unintelligent MRT designers had to build a North-South line, a East-West line, and a North-East Line...that covered almost every part of urban Singapore...except Bukit Timah of course. They realized their problem, and built a LRT system in Bukit Panjang....I might as well take a bus anywhere else. BUT they plan to build a Bukit Timah MRT Line that passes by my house...really near...Fantastic isn't it? Yeah. I'll have to wait for 10, yes TEN years for the construction of that. By then my house might be too old to stand. I like my are of Singapore though. Quite central, and because of the MRT unavailability, lots of buses pass by my house...hehe...Did I mention what was the nearest MRT station? It's Bukit Gombak. Really near, unless if you count that Lake and Park of course. AND the Ministry of Defence. Unless you can go right through their..um...defences. AND only for a MRT station?? Oh well.
Ok, I won't be so bad. I was bullshytting up there, because my house is practically in the middle of almost nowhere in the middle of Singapore, if you know what I mean. It's sensible for them to cater to the New Towns and not houses stuck next to the Bukit Timah Hill. BUT Dairy Farm is the best. Dairy Farm is the most spacious condominium you can ever compare with new comdominiums...(FYI Dairy Farm [Estate] is a condominium, not a Dairy Farm.) I'm not bragging, I'm just lonely...so next time you go hiking you can come visit me. Before you hike though. That's because after you climb the hill you'd probably feel so hot and humid (if it's a hot day) and you would like to jump into the quarry and swim but you can't because you can't swim or it is dangerous so you think of me and my bragging of my house and you want to come here to take a shower or bath or a swim in my swimming pool and waste my water bills so that next time I don't have enough money to stay in Dairy Farm Estate the very spacious condominium and I would have to move to a New Town which is near a MRT station and you know how I hate MRT stations because wherever I go I'll use MRTs and nobody will use buses anymore and if that happens there will be less buses and less people will support the buses and if that happens the SMRT people will think that they would rather concentrate on their trains and won't print bus guides and if THAT happens, I'll have no bus guides to collect and because of that I'll be bored having nothing to collect so I will try a new hobby called skydiving so I will climb up to the top of my HDB block and do the cheapest skydive without any expensive equipment at all. Phew. AND you know what will happen don't you. It will be my first and last skydiving experience. AND you'll be responsible for it. See how you shouldn't come and visit me actually, so why am I bragging (whatever)? It's to make you collect service guides too! (Actually it's just to post an impressive long post here. If it's lame, please thank me. I have succeeded then.)
Oh yeah, I also succeed if you read down to here. Now onto more 'formal' stuff.
I was sorry I could not post the last time, my times on the computer are so restrained. No fear though, I can use the coms in the school...on SgForums, mostly. In the last 3 months of 2005, I only made about 200 posts, 100 of those posts in December. Imagine...I posted 70+ messages in only 3 days...it really shows the activity. People are kind of sick of reading those lous messages...many are critisizing the forum...you can do your part though...share your thoughts...but you must be patient if you get 'assaulted'...erm if that's the right word to use.
It was formal, wasn't it?
Now I have got to have my dinner. I have succeeded in this task...it's actually quite simple to go on once you're onto a subject that you can expand, expand....expand...oh well. So...prepare for a long wait before you expect too see another post as long as this.
P.S. If you have guides of 61, 77, 180, 950, 965, NR6, NR7, and especially 175, you can e-mail me, PM me on SgForums, call me, knock on my door...oh no don't do that...whatever else other than coming to my house (especially after you climb Bukit Timah Hill) and give them to me. If you can get 2 of each it's better...and don't expect any 'tips', or basic payment more than 2X5 cents. :EViL LaUGh:

I've been recently trying to create a forum...similar to SgForums...but not really successful. Although I usually have lots of patience, I can't seem to use all my precious time on the computer looking for specific alterations that perhaps can't even be done. See, now I have to go and have my dinner...I think I'll be back later.
It's a timeless world...

Give me ideas too...

Of course I've got something to say...
There's a lot to say, but due to Brain failure and insufficient memory space to hold up to 5 days, I can't say all here. Yeah, and the weather has been bad lately. Horrible migraine on the last day...
The leaders were inexperienced, i think...the orientation was quite messy, lots of blank spaces...but their enthusiasm made up for it...this is only IJC's second year...I heard from seniors that last year the teachers organized the orientation, and expected, it was really boring...
I'm serious that the leaders were energetic and active...it really made up for the bad organization.
This is a erm...summary. Yeah. There was also this dream that Cloud from Legend of the Green Dragon turned EViL and we all ganged up on him...but that las a few weeks ago too...Can't remember.
Let's hope I'll feel internally happy soon...Until then, you'll see the power of DiViNE EViL.
Because, what's before that won't let you truly see the brightness of the dark.

New things will happen, new developments....but a same blog...for you all to see if you want...
Yes, you should. It could bring good health to you.
Good luck to you all. This post is necessary, but I don't have the mood to type now.
It's the mood to celebrate...a rare occasion...for a new beginning.
DiViNE EViL. Let it Begin.
