Seclusion

There comes a time in everyone's lives,

When they feel like distancing themselves.

From family, friends, strangers alike.

From technology, from communication, from all modern conveniences we take for granted.



I'm having one of those moments now.

I feel like walking in a field, empty but for wild flowers, grass and the gentle breeze making them nod their little flowery heads.

Or lying on sand, listening to the surf, feeling the sun on my face, the heat of the sand against my back.

Even on a rooftop, staring into the starry night, saying hi to the gibbous moon.

Also under the heavy rain, protected by an umbrella and raincoat, stomping in puddles with Puah Chu Kang boots, watching my paperboat flow down the stream on the road into the drain, then say Hi to Pennywise the Clown.

Random note: Had lunch at an unopened Balinese restaurant. Sister's host while she was in Bali cooked. Spicy, but good. =)

Worst kind of writers block

Is when you want to express so many things that you don't know where to start, and when you picked a starting point, you don't know how to put it into words.

Screenshots Galore


Geehehehehe (no typo there, I sometimes laugh like that). Another SSer spotted.


Needs no explanation.


Ah shucks can't really see it. If you clicky clicky the picky picky you'll see that I was on Chris Pirillo's blog (thanks to twitter) for a moment... really short moment. But can still BIRG~~ *bask bask bask*

Psycho Pirates, Day Two

Woke up, went to the loo, and was greeted by this
Kamikaze insects. And that was a better toilet, others were a lot worse.

Had breakfast,

Goofed off,

Before we went out for more physical activities.

Climbed

Squirmed

Flew

Trapezed

Pulled

Supported.

Camwhored,

Braced,

Swung,

Balanced,

Chilled,

Squealed.

Got dizzy

Looked like a fool,

Impromptu training,

Paddled.

Got hurt.


After all the fun and games, we had more fun. :) Cleaned up, found out who were the winners, packed up, and left.

Some were left behind accidentally to wait for their outside friends.

While the rest of us slept,

closed accounts,


Bullied Kok Wui,

camwhored (some more),

talked,

made calls, when we finally could get strong enough signal.

and we ate.

Whatever won, we shared and ate.




Two days and one night wasn't enough. Enough to give me a bad back for two days, but not enough to bond.

Do you see what I see?


Beauty or junk?


Care or neglect?


Definition or shades of grey?


The road to doom or salvation?


Is it all evil, or is there a ray of goodness in anything?

Psycho Pirates, Day One

ARRRR!

Last weekend I was away for a Psychology Camp, planned by my Human Personality lecturer, Dr Anasu.


We met up on a bright Saturday morning, at the same place where the athletes were waiting to go for their competitions.

Got on the Abang Beb bus (So cute, that name)

And off we went to the middle of nowhere (We drove past Nottingham, just to let you know how jungle-y the place we stayed in were. :P)

Before a pit stop for food, we camwhored..

and I spotted the cleanest rubbish disposal truck I've ever seen in my life.

Ade saw the name, and she burst out laughing. The rest saw, and they burst out laughing. Sigh, Psych students. Lol.

Had very good Siew Pau there, and soon enough
We reached our destination.

We were early
So we had a little gathering to split us up into rooms
and for Dr Anasu to brief us a little.

For none of us non-committee members knew what would be going on.

Unpacked, and met up again to get into our teams.

And our first challenge? Making a team flag, protecting 4 eggs and creating a skit to go with our victory cry.

Hard at work

Getting really messy

But still had fun playing the games. From Bad-divorce Dragon Parents, to Protect the Queen (where most, if not all, group leaders were guys. Heee)

Guess who camwhored while we were busy chasing each other? :P

After a tiring day, we went for dinner
Eating wasn't the only thing we did.

Talked, camwhored, burped. Lol.

Washed up our own plates and all too, using the fresh spring water that was piped up.

Another game was played,

where we had limited use of our senses.

Thank goodness no one died.

After discussing what we felt, learnt and all that

we rested a while

Had supper,

And on to the ghost stories. For the first time in my entire life, I actually got really creaped out, and so did everyone else. Some of us actually squeezed into another's bed, while others like me moved to a less empty corner of the room. Heck, even Dr Anasu felt like bunking with the rest of the girls for a while.




There were more pictures taken in those two days, compared to my 3 day Penang trip. -.-"

Part two coming up!
