Graduation 2 and Merry Christmas!
Thursday, December 25, 2008
It's Christmas people!
Anyway, I've just receive e-mails from Facebook telling me that Joanna has tagged some photos of me online. So I went onto Facebook and discovered some graduation photos which she failed to send me. And those were crazy incidents that happened before the graduation ceremony start.
With the art people around, not even a single minute would be sane.
This is evidence 1.
We were reading this 'Urban' newspaper which comes together with the Straits Times while waiting for the graduation ceremony to start. Out of a sudden, the cover page design kinda like spark my inspiration of having a high fashion funeral photo (when I pass on). Then suddenly we started discussing about how funny it'll look like if we pose as though the cover page model was uh-hem ("sell salted duck eggs"). And we tried to pose for a serious photo holding the photo of the cover page model.
But we thought the photo ain't very nice 'cause we were secretly smiling (aka 'am chio') [Below]
So, we decided to try another photo. But the thought of the photoshoot was utterly funny and Breda and I burst into laughter before the photographer (I think it's either Prunella or Meng Hang) snapped our photo. As you can see in this photo (Below), Joanna was the last one standing, trying her utmost best to hold back her laughter while Breda and I gave in.
We laughed so loudly till the librarian (Old Bitch) 'shh-ed' us. We went crazy in the library I tell you. People were staring at us as we posed for the photo.
Finally, on our 3rd attempt (Below) we succeed in coming out with a 'more-like-it' photo. But still, Joanna is still 'am chio'-ing. We 3 decided that a sepia photo would enhance the ambience of the photo.
And then Chervonne came along and saw what we did and it got her inspired too. But Chervonne cannot pose as well as I do (Obviously! I'm the Singapore's Next Top Model) and she look highly spastic in each of the photos. For instance, the one below clearly shows how she look like when she's all serious.
Yes, I bet all your expressions will look like Joanna's in this photo when you see Chervonne's serious face!
And then comes this wtf photo (Below). Look at Chervonne's face and expression! HAHHAHA, classic un-glamourous face. As for Breda and Joanna, they both looked sad. Especially Joanna. It seems as though both of them are orphans that are about to be sold off by the unglam Mamasan, Chervonne!
Chervonne tries to act cute. I tried to look haunting while Joanna looked as though she's some talk show host trying to give the "its so cool" hand signal.
Since Joanna complained on my tagboard that she ain't in most of the photos 'cause she was busy fighting with people over the Buffet provided by our school, I'll do some good deed since its christmas and she has been nice (except for the fact that she's super mean to Super Zhao).
In the photo below, Breda tries very hard to look like a top student but I assure you, she failed terribly. She thinks that donning herself with a Yishun Junior College tie, which only top students wear, will make her look 'fly'. Breda, I'm the real deal ok!
Now, we have a Joanna who tried to join in the fun by using Alvin's tie. Tsk tsk tsk. Cheap thrill!
Oh, I like this photo below. I'm the only male in the THORNS.
Look at Chervonne's contorted legs. Must she always photograph herself in such unflattering angles and ways? Sigh.
Another example of Chervonne going crazy and unglamourous. Sigh, this girl needs help. HAHAHAHAHAHA. I
n this photo you see Breda, Crazy Cranky Chervonne (Hey it's CCC - like Cotton Candy Club), Meng Hang and Azfaris.
Ok, more updates coming up!
Ok I'll end this entry with my version of Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You"
*Clears throat and sings*"I don't want a lot for Christmas, there is just one thing I need"
"I don't care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree"
"I just want you for my own. More than you could ever know"
"Make my wish come true"
"Baby, all I want for Christmas is... ..................................LV!!!!"

Yes, I have not blogged for like the past century. There's so many stuff to blog about since like Term 3 block test. Now, I shall start with graduation. I cut a very weird and unconventional hair style just for graduation. I have straight bangs (fringe) now. They're not really straight but curved straight. Its the last official schooling day (though I disappeared like nobody's business from school due to coursework), so a little rebellion won't do much harm right? So, why not?
I've a very 'cute
' school. On the day of graduation we had like half a day of lessons. Goodness gracious me. The day started with Geography lecture whereby the teachers did some revision for the 'A' Levels, before we're all out of the school. After the lecture, the Geography teachers gave us individually a note and a pen(I fathomed the pen was meant for us to write faster during the Human and Physical Geography paper - a device will send electric currents and shock you if you don't write on time)
Group photo with our Physical Geography teacher, Miss Yeo, who claims that we're her favourite class. Meng Hang was missing, I think he went to Egypt again. So, that's like a small portion of our class (Above
). Fook Kian just love to let sway his hands around. He just blocked Meng Chuan's face.
Group photo with Mdm Selvi, our Human Geography teacher. (Above
) I still feel that she look like an Indian Paris Hilton. If she went to bleach her skin and go blonde, I think she'd give Paris Hilton a run for her money. Like hello, you look like a Paris Hilton!!
) Initially Miss Yeo wanted to take a photo with me. Then she saw Meng Hang behind me, so she called Meng Hang along. Then came Joanna. Miss Yeo thus gave Joanna the camera and call her to help us take a photo. Then Joanna went (in her low voice), "Huh? I thought I was going to be in the picture with you all."
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA poor Joanna experienced rejection. So eventually she was included in the photo (not via photoshop) HAHAHA.
And then, the real graduation started. Well air-conditioned and the ambience was right. Ya, right.. for sleeping. I was practically dozing off on my seat. Azfaris kept turning over to gossip with me which was the only thing that kept me awake. The principal played the song "Theme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To?)" by Diana Ross to somewhat inspire us. Well, personally I prefer the cover version by Mariah Carey 'cause Diana Ross' voice was too sharp in her version. So if she were to play the one by Mariah Carey I would've left the hall totally inspired instead of dozing off.
Not bad, at least I sang along with the Diana Ross' version. Wanted to go up the stage and snatch the microphone over just so I can flaunt my talent. Well the ambience felt right and was like American Idol.
After the entire ceremony, all the students went crazy with a camera in their hands. Flash lights go on and off blinding almost everyone. I got flashed in my face by this crazy woman who nearly made me take out my camera and blind her with the flash light. I thought the ambience was so right with the air-conditioned on and you can go around snapping photos but NO. The school had to switch off the air-conditioner on time and we were all sweating like pigs doing workout. By the end of everything we were like just finished with swimming!
) A photo with 2 of the smallest things in my class. Jackie (left), Me and Irene (right). Irene is my go-home-buddy whenever we knock off from lessons together. She's called "Wei He" (as in Why in Mandarin) or Pi Pi. And her tag line is something no one understands, Donkey Monkey Saturated (like wtf too much Geography? No, it means that her brain has reached its capacity in memorising something)
Don't ask me when I'm staring at. You know, so many people wants to take photos and they're all standing at different places. One thing about them, they don't say "1, 2, 3, Smile" just so people know which camera to turn to. And this photo is the classic result of such incidents. I'm so gonna slap the person whom I called to take a photo for us. Below
is a photo with Jessie (Choong/Hilton) and Allison. We have got an uglier photo but I think we shouldn't put it up just so it doesn't tarnish our reputation.
Saw Miss Yeo and as said, she wanted to take an individual photo with me. Just so, we saw Haziyah and asked her to aid us in taking the photo. Wtf, Haziyah turned everything to Sepia and snapped this. Just so you know, the photo turned out to be sepia but when I tried to adjust it back to normal mode, I found out that its all along in normal mode. Strange, just like the photographer.
Pardon my ugly stance.
Took photos with Pei En and Jaime (Below
Photograph of me, Reuben (Soh), Laura and Rui Shan. (Below) My closest buddies in Yishun Junior College. Friends since day 1 when we step in into Yishun Junior College. Retained together too but we're gonna pass our 'A' Levels with flying colours too!!
After snapping the photo above, the others wanted to join in too. And we've got Benjamin, Keith and Pei Ru too. All are retainees except for Benjamin and Keith.
After the group shot, Joshua wanted another photo too. So now, in this photo below, we've got Laura, Rui Shan, Pei Ru, Joshua and yours truly.
INSANITY STARTS HERE WITH THE ART MATES
We've Chervonne here talking on the phone and posing with us (Hazura and I). We're in such awkward positions and how very strange but still I like the photo.
And then we've the Mighty Morphing Power Painters - Hafiszah, Me and Grace - ("It's Morphing Time!"). We, the painters, have braved through all the Turpentine, acrylic paints, oil paints and even Prisca together! We survived the "Have You Finish Your Work? Move On Move On!" and emerged as pure survivors! We have gossiped together like there was no tommorrow even when Mr Lak and Miss Gao were floating around the art room. We have even gossiped so loud till Miss Gao claimed that it sounded like having 9 people in the art room when there was only us 3.*Hits chest like taking an oath*
PAINTERS, YOU ROCK!
Oh did I mention, Azfaris gave us a very weird graduation gift which was memorable. He made top few gifts. Noraashikin, Grace and I were top 3 presents of his list.
He gave his classmate, Nadiah, a toilet detergent and another a magnifying glass 'cause she complained about the small words in lecture.
As for the art people, he gave Hazura medicated plasters for she always complain about headache. Noraashikin got a pump (the one whereby you pump water out from the fish tank) 'cause she has got asthma and Azfaris claim she use it in times of emergency. Grace and I both got a clock. (Though its inauspicious in Chinese culture, its still super funny) The reason why Grace got a clock was because she was always late for art coursework sessions 'cause she overslept all the time. As for me, it's because of the long travelling time from Boon Lay and I'm also late for school most of the time!
Azfaris is crazy I tell you (Below
By the way, I would love to thank everyone for their presents. Jerene, Prunella, Chervonne, Noraashikin, Breda, Azfaris and Grace.
Took photos with the other 2 art boys. I tell you, I'm super pissed with them. Just take a look at photos below. When I posed so nicely with the bright smile, they give me that kinda look. Look at Azfaris, he look constipated and at the same time trying to seek enlightenment! As for Meng Hang, he trying to look fierce like some top model. EH EXCUSE ME, ITS SUPPOSE TO BE A NICE PHOTO OK! WASTE MY TIME TO SMILE.
Now look at this photo. When I'm pissed, they start smiling. Wtf. That Azfaris still look constipated. I think I need to get him some Broccoli to give him some fibre. As for Meng Hang, he now tries to act cute with the 'W' smile. WTF.
Ok, I shall end the entry with this photo of Joanna and I. I think we look super funny in this photo. So distorted. Look at Joanna, her face is so comical! She look like she's a cast from "Honey I Strunk the Kids" (a 1989 film) and my hair make me look like a kid too. These kind of views always make people look like kids with big heads and small body!
Stay tuned for the next entry about neoprints and my United Kingdom & Paris trip!!

I just realised some photos from my previous entry couldn't be enlarged thanks to Blogspot. How are my viewers going to see the speech bubbles? Tell me.
Anyway, I re-uploaded some of the photos which previously couldn't be enlarged.
As told by Y!P
DISCLAIMER: IMAGES ARE EDITED AND MAY NOT NECESSARILY DEPICT REAL LIFE EVENTS.
The Art students met up yesterday to study for the Studies of Visual Arts paper which is on next Tuesday. The initial activity was perfectly sane, trust me. We were quietly studying our individual notes, memorizing what ever we can. We, too, made ourselves very comfortable in the Library, sitting at one corner beside "Seed" with our slippers off. For non-Art students, "Seed" is a sculpture made by Singaporean Sculptor, Han Sai Por. The commissioned work is located at the 2nd level of the Woodlands Regional Library.
Everything was relatively sane until SOMEONE took out her camera phones and started snapping. The insanity started right at the moment the first photo was snapped. I've no idea which is the first photo, but in this blog entry, I'm going to show you some of the photos. The photos are topped with my editing.
THE INSANITY STARTS HERE:
Photo 1 shows Hafiszah and Grace having a heart to heart chat in a... Tropical Paradise? (Below) Yes, they found themselves a tropical wonderland at the corner of where we sitted - in the library. They were enjoying the shade provided by the leaves of the vegetation around them. Take a look at the speech bubbles I created.
Get what I mean when I say they were enjoying themselves? The library, for once, turned into a beach. The trees provided the duo with a shelter as they enjoy the cooling sea breeze and warmth from the sun. Whoah, you can see seagulls and an umbrella too! (Below)
This was not the only crazy thing that happened. During our study session, I was so stressed that I slapped myself. My alter ego overtook and started abusing me! Initially, it was an enjoyable moment. But as my alter ego overtook, I suffered! (As shown below). I was whacked in the lips by Hon Long II. This..resulted in a swollen lip!!! *Cries pitifully as Hon Long recounts the incident* The pain, the agony!
I would say that the studying session can be rather inspiring for some - for instance Meng Hang. He was so into what he was studying that he entered the world of Visual Arts and evolved into a Ron Mueck artwork. For non-Art students, Ron Mueck is an Australian sculptor who creates works that are highly realistic (i.e. look exactly like real human beings) but at the same time, greater than human size.
Meng Hang became greater than life size during the study session! He just grew and grew and grew to such an extent that he became 16 times our height! And *poof* he became an artwork! (Below)
Apart from all those wtf incidents that happened, we experienced another wtf moment. Prunella's inner bitch appeared. Just look at the photo below, I think it explains everything! Poor "Seed" was so frightened!
Next moment, we have a Joanna while couldn't get over her "America's Next Top Model" dream. She still insist that she could pose as well as Tyra Banks. So, she hugged onto the "Seed" and tried her utmost best to strike a high fashion pose. Well, Tyra left her a note (as seen below). You readers shall judge who's better in posing. I've no comments!
Then suddenly we spotted a relative of Ken, the Pot Kia. It's the potted plant situated right behind him!!!!
In case viewers don't understand why we call him Pot Kia, it is because his A Level Art coursework involves pottery.
The self-slapping moment isn't all that happened to me. To relax my senses, I turned to yoga. I always believe I'm some yoga guru and today I could finally showcase my capabilities! (Below) I can do so much better compared to that lady in the photo! See, see! I think I should teach yoga after my A Levels. I've the potential, can you?
After spending so much time with "Seed", we've decided to test its authenticity. Below shows the painstaking process that we went through to test whether it is the real deal!
While testing its authenticity, greater than life size Meng Hang decide to snap a photo of me testing it without me knowing! See, I told you he was inspired by the studying session. He even adopted Cindy Sherman's interest in "voyeurism"! Joanna and I became his artwork!
Anyway, I find the photo very amusing. It resembles the drama series of Channel 8 back in the 90s! It was called Golden Pillow (金枕头). The most memorable part of the drama series is when this golden pillow (gold rock actually) , past down by the lead character's dad, can communicate with the lead actor and the actresses.
That's classic! The 3 of them gathering together listening to the rock! And the lead actor would ask the actresses whether they can hear it. And surprisingly, the 2 actresses replied, claiming that they can hear it too while sobbing happy tears. You can see that in the mini photo below! HAHAHAHAHA!
There were also moments where "Seed" spoke too! Take a look at the photo below. Meng Hang and Joanna decided to lean against the "Seed" while looking all Korean-drama-ey. They posed like those typical couple poses you can find in those korean soap opera.
Then suddenly, Meng Hang & Joanna thought they heard the "Seed" curse & swear! They pissed the "Seed" off.
Tsk tsk tsk.
Did I mentioned that Hafiszah went to one corner to get all emotional? I think maybe 'cause Grace didn't want to share the shade anymore. HAHAHA. She ran to this awful corner. We, the art students, couldn't help but claim that the photo look extremely Edward Hopper-ish. The photo exudes the isolation of human kind in an urbanised area.
In the crazy-ing process, I found my long lost sister, Joanna. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA
I've no idea who snapped this photo (below). This photo shows the timeline of Meng Hang. His appearance as he age. Wow, Meng Hang, this is so Duane Hanson's "Man on a Bench". A documentation of the ageing Meng Hang! Wonderful, Splendid!
Our insanity ended in quite a mess. Take a look at the area which we studied at.
Alright, after leaving the library, we went for dinner. The after-food chat was crazy! We joked and laughed like nobody's business. The most significant one is about Jerene and her senior.
We joked that we'll appear at place which they would go. If they go to fast food restuarants, she'll see us at the counter, mopping the floor, serving them their food and clearing their food. HAHAHA. If they go to the library, she'll see us pushing trolleys of books, some staking the books and some at the information counter. If they take a train, the guys will be patrolling while the girls would be in-charge of terminating trains and blowing the whistle. HAHAHAHAHAHA!
I think the one in the cinema is funny. She'll see us in commercials. Joanna will be in the Lux advertisement while I'll be in the kung-fu flicks. The one in the taxi is also classic. If Jerene & her senior board the taxi, the taxi driver will be me. HAHAHAHAHAHA! We'll stalk Jerene. She can run but she can't hide.
OK. That's about all. It is 3.40am and I'm super tired. Watching the diving Olympics now.
Anyway, in case some readers don't get it, SOME OF THE CONTENTS IN THIS ENTRY ARE HIGHLY FICTIONAL (for example, the growth of Meng Hang to 16 times our height). The sentences in orange and bolded are definitions of some art contents which some non-art students may not know.

ATTACK OF AFRO & REBONDED WIG
Sunday, August 17, 2008
DISCLAIMER: THIS ENTRY CONTAINS HIGHLY 'EDITED' IMAGES. THE MODEL IN THESE PHOTOS IS NOT THE REAL HON LONG (READ: NOT THE REAL HON LONG)
I KNOW Y'ALL MISSED ME. YOU READERS CAN'T DO WITHOUT ME RIGHT? SO I'M BACK, THIS TIME BACK WITH AN AFRO!
HELLO SEXY (I was refering to myself, sorry to let y'all readers think I called y'all).
DON'T CHA WISH YOUR AFRO WAS HOT LIKE MINE? DON'T CHA.
Noraashikin brought these props over for her coursework consultation and she wanted to go home (quite long ago). I saw those wigs and I jumped upon the chance to wear them. The afro caught my eye first and I couldn't resist but have it placed over my head. I swear it was just for experience.
BUT, it wasn't long before my enthusiasm went slightly over the limit (well, not really slightly but it skyrocketed) and I tried looking sexy with it. I bet its the afro's fault - it controlled me -, I swear it isn't the Hon Long who wanted to do this! I'm innocent!
The feeling was great. I was literally indulged in my own afro world I was so... sooo (I can't find the word to describe the moment). I got high on afro! Just look at that face (below)! I was twirling the curls. The feeling was orgasmic!
Can't you feel the heat? Can't you feel my sexiness raging through the curls of the afro? Don't you wanna try an afro too? I know you want to!
And then, Noraashikin, the instigator, took out a long rebonded wig. That's when the insanity rose to a higher level.
I put on the wig and evolved into a "Christina Ugliera Umbrella
". I became even sexier than the afro! I posed like the SUPER (FUGLY)
TOP MODEL. I felt like a pop star and for one moment in time, I could reach the notes like the real Christina Aguilera. I nearly sang "Beautiful". Tears nearly flow out of my eyes, it was emotional! I felt b-be--eautiful and words couldn't bring me down!I AM BEAUTIFUL, NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY. WORDS CAN'T BRING ME DOWN!
After I took off the wig which was the source of the madness, I couldn't help but think that it bears some resemblance to our body hair. So, image if you've got rebounded and long armpit hair, what will it look like? The answer is right here, Professor Yip has answered all your queries! (LOOK BELOW)
REBONDED STRAIGHT ARMPIT HAIR
Crazy moments always have end quite quickly. The instigator had to return the props and I reluctantly have to return them to her! But before returning to her, we snapped a photo together. Me with the afro while Noraashikin with the rebounded hair.OOPS, I'M NOT SURE IF NORAASHIKIN KNOWS THAT I PLACED THE WIG NEAR MY UNDERARMS! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
I think she look better with longer hair, but nevertheless, less sexier than my afro! HAHAHHAHAHA. After this session, I've decided to perm my hair after my A Levels and I'd look like a Super Zhao! Just that my curls are sexier than Super Zhao!FIERCE SHOT WITH WIGS
(MODELS: HON LONG & NORAASHIKIN)
Conclusion: I LOVE AFRO WIGS AND WIGS CAN CONTROL ONE'S SANITY.ITS THE ATTACK OF THE AFRO & REBOUNDED WIG!
