20 March 2008 Updates

OK, I just updated like 5 hours ago? Met my family members for dinner just now. OK this is a short entry 'cause I wrote one previously (as seen below). Bought myself a white linen shorts from Giordano for casual leisure wear. Don't feel like wearing jeans when its uber hot. Cost me a $29.40 after 40% discount. Sigh, I need to stop spending on items to pamper myself. Had lunch at PastaMania with my classmates and I spent like $16.10 on it. Yes, just a lunch. After that I went for my appointment with the Dermatologist and it cost a $25.90. At this rate of spending my "dough" (a metaphor for money) I'll soon be broke.
Currently down with a terrible cold. Whenever I'm having any exams I'll sure be down with cold. How very lucky! (Sings Britney Spears' "Lucky" - Ai Ai Ar Ar Eye Ya) I'm currently typing this entry and there's a mountain high of tissue paper filled with mucus right in front of me. Ha, sexy.
Oh, the Samsung Giorgio Armani phone is out and it cost $1388 without contract. How can I live when I keep wanting to get these designer phones (as shown below). As most of you know, I'm a sucker for mobile phones. Now, designers are collaborating with mobile phones manufacturers. HOW CAN I RESIST THE TEMPTATION? Sigh, I need money. I need infinite amount of it.
Should start being frugal. At this rate, I won't be able to save up enough for me to go overseas, let alone study at overseas Universities.

Hasn't been updating much. It's the Block Test week! Finished my General Paper, Economics and Maths paper. Economics was a major flop. Lost more half the marks for both Paper 1 and 2 I guess. I just don't understand why am I doing Economics when I can't seem to score for it. Gosh. Should've just dropped it from the start and do another subject. Perhaps like English Literature, Chinese Literature, China Studies in English, H2 Mathematics or even Chemistry (yes you heard that right, Chemistry.) My hatred for Economics was so strong at one moment in time that I wanted to drop it and switch Economics with Chemistry. I hated Chemistry since the secondary school days but at junior college level, I hate Economics even more! Sadly I didn't change it and look at me today! I'm still getting U-grades for Economics. Damn, I should buck up 'cause the A Levels are just round the corner. I'm going to be the triple A student from the Arts stream when I get my results next year!
The grades that I'm aiming for would be an A for H2 Art
(not literally A for Art as in the spelling, duh!) , A for H2 Geography
and perhaps a B for H2 Economics
. As for my H1 Mathematics
, I aim for an A
and a B for General Paper
. I'm in need for a scholarship serious. I need to go overseas to study Fine Arts. The only University which provide Art studies would be Art, Design and Media in Nanyang Technological University. But I'm not a fan of Media Art. I can't do digital art for goodness sake. I need to go overseas to study! Dad was looking through the news paper and he came across an advertisement by Sotheby's Institute of Art. They're providing a scholarship. However that is for Masters of Arts. Like hello, I barely have a degree. I'm so tempted to do well in my studies. I need that!
Anyway, back then I bought an pants with the suspenders from Esprit. However I think the stupid suspenders are a bit too small for me. Shit, Did I get the wrong size or did someone swap it. Fuck. Its a bit small! It was alright when I tried it on, was it 'cause I took the faulty pair!? Shit. Don't wish to talk much about it. Sigh! Below are the photos of the pants.
"HELLO MICKEY". It's not like my name is Mickey. I'm refering to my t-shirt which I wore with my pants.
I love the back of the suspenders. But, I need to figure out a way to tuck my shirt. Any suggestions?
More updates coming soon. Need to meet my mum for dinner!

Recently got myself a new pair of spectacles. My old pair snapped into 2. Went down with mum and I initially wanted to get a branded pair of spectacles with fanciful design. However after considering the fact that I'll be going army soon, I decided to stick to a pair of black, plastic and thick framed one. After narrowing down the scope of designs, I was contemplating over Donna Karan
) or agnès
b.. So, eventually I got the DKNY
one cause I ain't really a fan of the lizard logo of agnès
b. and no typical "un
-brand-savvy" will know what on earth that lizard meant.
I realized that as your brand logo gets bigger and bigger, the more expensive your spectacles would be. This applies to the branded spectacles I mean. I actually wanted a Burberry but the store doesn't carry the brand and even if they do, the one that caught my eye when I skimmed through their website would cost me 5 A Level Geography textbooks. This DKNY pair cost me a $245 (inclusive of the lens) after my mum tried her utmost best to get the best bargain out of the salesgirl. The new spectacles is making me rather dizzy. Guess I ain't used to it. Overall, the outlook of this pair of spectacles is simple and normal. Not over the top 'cause its fully black for god sake! I'm just paying for the brand. However, if I compare this to a normal pair of gloss finished plastic frames, this spectacles exudes a edgey and stylish feel.
The brand of my spectacles is at the sides. "Donna Karan" is written on the sides (as shown below). The salesgirl was like saying, all I need to do is to use black tape to tape the logo up when I need to use it for army. Black and plastic frames are essential for army and it must be fully black. So guess I'd have to do so when I go army.
Gotten comments from friends saying that I look nerdy in this pair of spectacles. While others claim its nice on me. So, its for you all to think. Do tag what you all feel.
Had my usual Saturday Art lesson and to my horror, the current batch of J1 students are actually going Germany in June. What the hell, I've been a J1 Art student for 2 fucking years and bloody hell I ain't got no chance to fly out of Singapore! My Art teacher say she's planning to bring next year's J1 batch to London. That doesn't impress me much 'cause my relatives are staying in UK, hence I can travel to London anytime I want after army or straight after my A Levels. Its Germany that I'm interested in - somewhere I've no relatives at so its a must-go.NOW, ALL J2 ART STUDENTS THAT ARE READING MY BLOG, PLEASE SAVE UP. WE'RE GOING PARIS STRAIGHT AFTER OUR LAST PAPER!
