I got myself a long sleeve shirt from Juicy Couture for Men yesterday! Juicy Couture recently branched out its brand for Men in 2002! Mum and sis says its uber Ah-Beng. Anyway I don't care. Celebrated Grandma's birthday yesterday and we had international buffet at Sakura. Gave Grandma a $50 from my own personal savings since she said she wanted to get herself a mobile phone. Now, I'm seriously broke. I love Grandma to bits and piece, so I won't mind starving for a few more days.
Oh, I didn't update much about the Greek Masterpieces from the Louvre. It's a wonderful exhibition which you all should go take a look! Below are some photos. I'm lazy to blog much!
Me and my fellow Art Mates - the ones I usually hang out with (Below)
Notice Chervonne - the one clad in red, damn she look like a jellyfish in that costume!
Here's some masterpieces
The Birth of Erichthonius (Below), one of my personal favourites.
Did I mention I'm a student docent to my school mates every tuesday? I've to introduce them to the art works!
Look at the details. Damn, how I wish I can do something like this! This artwork is to give a wet look.
Sorry about not blogging my readers. I know y'all miss me!

First day of Lunar New Year
Thursday, February 07, 2008
First day of Lunar New Year and as usual I'll have to go out to my relatives' place. A happy day whereby one can literally wear new
clothes. Putting on new
clothes and waxing my hair makes me feel new! Gosh, I'm a new
Hon Long today! Hahaha. The hand in back pocket pose made me rather aneroxic and thin - fuck that! (oops, no cursing in the new year, Hon Long!)
Went up to Grandma's place for lunch and took family portraits with the aid of my uncle whose hobby is photography. The nicer photographs are all in my uncle's professional camera. I can only post those that are in mine. Love this photo, think I should blow it up and put at home.
Grandma and her grandchildren. There should be 4 of us (grandchildren) but the youngest one was busy playing with his dad's camera. So, the 3 of us snapped a photo without him. Grandma looked squeezed. But she's still as adorable as ever!
Snapped a photo with Sis and I've no idea why is she holding that "chun lian" thing!
My parents, and that "chun lian". What is with the holding-chun-lian pose?! I think the festive mood is getting the best of them! Dad looks rather angular in this photo. Hahahaha!
Cousins and relatives will all gather at my place tommorrow. Sigh. It'll be a bloody busy day! Think I'd better do some reading of my General Paper content book starting from now. Or I won't be able to find it by Monday!

Finally got myself a pair of decent white jeans suitable for me, my thighs and my waist. Those white jeans in TopMan are all fat unfriendly
. Their jeans are only meant for people with skinny chicken feet! Had a tough time in their fitting room- trying my utmost best to squeeze into the tapered part of the jeans (aka the thigh areas). That particular moment in the fitting room of TopMan was totally emotional. The pain and the agony upon seeing myself in the mirror clad in the skinny jeans that appeared 100 times too tight for me (please bare it in mind, I took a pair that is exactly my waist size! Its just the tapered part, not my waist!). I got to the point of breaking down (Ok, drama was injected into this sentence!), especially so when you were to discover that almost everyone
on the streets are wearing skinny jeans and you can't fucking fit into one. I'm not fat, just slightly bigger in size than those who can perfectly fit into skinny jeans! Those who can slip into a pair of skinny jeans without breaking a sweat ought to be kicked in the face! Who the fuck came out with the skinny jeans? Tell me! TELL ME! I bet the designer of skinny jeans is someone who's like a walking piece of bamboo!
Anyway, I got myself the pair of wonderful white denim from Crocodile. Yes, you heard it right. Crocodile. Initially selling clothings and pants that ranges from my father's age to my grandfather's, Crocodile now ventures into the youngsters' sector! I thought that this pair of jeans would be cheap (given that it is Crocodile) but I got a shock of my life when I saw the price tag which read $99.90. Wow, a $0.10 from a $100! But after waiting for a some time, there happen to be a storewide 20% discount with an additional 10% if customers were to use NETS to pay. Obviously I won't let this opportunity slip by and what's more, I love to NETS my purchases. So, I got this pair of jeans at $71.93
. Compared to those cheap, thin white jeans sold in "Ah Beng" shops in Far East, my Crocodile jeans is like way better. Plus, I got it at a cheaper price than those in Far East selling $75 and above for thin face-tissue-lookalike jeans.
Now now, I'm left with a pair of shoes for Chinese New Year and its merely 3 days away from me. How?! I'm planning to get myself a loafer which won't make me look fucking old.
Ok anyway, back then, my artwork theme was Glorifying Suicide, but my Vice-Principal and Art teacher think its bordering along violence and I was forced to change a new theme. My Vice-Principal, who was an Art Elective Programme teacher, thinks that my work exudes too much negativity which may scare or turn my markers off. But wait a minute, I love dark, moody and sad themes! How positive can I get? My Art teacher thinks that this piece of work (below) is too violent and scary. She fears for my mental status.
How violent is this drawing?! I tried my best to make it look classy! Look, I even glorified the suicide process of this woman who was abused into a stage play! I like this work, except for the fact that the woman's arms are a bit (well, not a bit but quite) muscular! I even portrayed her in a "graceful" hanging way ok! What's so violent?
Sigh, have been getting very little sleep nowadays. Gotta go catch some sleep now. Chinese New Year is nearing people, let's go Mahjong-ing!
