over friendly guy: "hello Miss, can spare me just a few mins to do this survey for me??" (bad english)
depending on my mood and how the person trys to get my attention, this is how i usually react
-totally ignore and walk on
-use my hands to stop him
Why this entry today? HUH!!! coz this is a record high.. i got stopped 5 times in a matter of few hours. I know this is their rice bowl..but really, how many insurance policies or invesment plans can one get?!
While waiting for my bus at the bus stop outside Emerald Somerset... 3 different women approached me. I have my earphones ..blasting my mp3s. Shook my head at the first lady, and later got pissed when the 2nd one approached me ..so just simply treated her as transparent and least to say the 3rd one got similar cold treatment.
4th and 5th time were at Toa Payoh... *roll eyes*
Okay, even if i were to filled in the 'survey form', it is affirmative that I will be filling in a fake name and an even fake-ier phone no.
I know they have this 'never say die' 'postive' attidude. Therefore..if you are really not interested in listening to them sharing about the policies, the drawing of the time line, the telling you what will happen if u are jobless when u are 50 kinda stories.. you have to be firm when being approach. Wishy washy and hahahaha.. good luck.... you will end up having a 'nice chat' with them
Okay..enough..let's not get started on those time sharing 'surveys

Venue-Singapore Arts Museum *Glass Hall*
We were in the glass hall practicing and of coz there were vistors to the museum. Quite a lot of them were drawn to the glass hall by our playing. I felt like a fish coz they were all peering in thru the glass.. :P
*practicing during the day*
*start of the wayang!!* It was quite crowded intially. Hardly any room for me to stretch my legs hahaha. Most audience wouldn't stay for the whole performance and this one is no different. Nearly half of those people u see seated at the back left after act one. Kids of all ages *big kids too* were captivated by the colorful puppets and fighting scenes.
*Can you spot me??*
Concentrating on my playing :P *front of the screen*
*group photo* The puppet master is the one in the center--Mr Purbo Asmoro who's quite renowned in Java and msuican Pak Wakidi Relaxing after the performance :)

*rAnT oF dE wEeK*
There is a disturbing trend among the kids and young people these days. (before i go on..i have to stress, i am young , but these young people in question are younger than me hahahah ) What I am referring to is the way some of these kids type. dO U rEali LikE tO rEaD pAsSaGes tYpEd In tIs mAnnEr? I get a major headache the min. i see such typing style. Some of them even used such short forms when writing school essays. *roll eyes* Another thing I noticed these days. Adding of 'de' (的) and 'le' at the end of the sentences. Of coz such sentences are used in the casual context. But I personally find it quite irritating. For eg ---> No, I am tired, not gonna join u guys le. Or -- I am going to bed le. Argh..first there is singlish..and now this? chinglish? (*___________*)'''''
