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.

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!
