[Edit: Ok awkward insertion here but hayyyyy gaiiiiizz, I just added a new “Wishlist” page (points above) and it’s the page where I unabashedly ask for things I would like to have HAHA. At the moment it also serves as a reminder to myself that I need to read more fiction instead of non-fiction all the time. So yeah I really will love you if you get me one of those books — mainly because I’m too lazy/busy to search for them myself — and I might be updating the list occasionally with more stuff that catch my eye hehehe ok end of shamelessness bye]
Nothing much has been going on in hall. Mostly because I’ve been trying my best not to stay in my new room as much as possible due to my positively strange roomie and her oddball of a friend who is squatting in the room as well. Ughhh, I don’t know anyone who is more of a slob than these two. Dropped hair gathering in curly clumps, gigantic dust bunnies rolling around — could they be intending to keep these dust bunnies as pets lolwut — and a super messy wardrobe are just a few traits that make my hair stand (here I am talking about hair ON MY BODY, NOT ALL OVER ON THE FLOOR because guess what, NOT CLEANING UP IS GROSS)
Apart from the apparent sloppiness they both share, my roomie and her friend like to change in the room (not that I’m very against this but they didn’t even ask if I’m all right with it) and proceed to hold their very own fashion shows (think diva-like strutting around in the tiny space between the beds) while I am still in the room so that they can figure out which outfits to wear the next day.
There are various other sides to them that I’d much rather not see, and I’d spare you guys even more cringeworthy moments by having to read about them. In short: I have pretty weird roomies right now and I can only cross my fingers and hope with all my heart that things get better (e.g. the squatter friend moves out ASAP so the room is less crammed; or I get a totally new roomie; or I… somehow get used to this oddity).
… Ok. I really miss my previous roomie in Hall 9.
On a much less disgusting and hairy note, the rest of the week had been pretty ~normal~, unless you count visiting all the booths at the CCA Fair multiple times to the point of weird and loser-ish something noteworthy. Hahaha. But I did sign up for quite a few CCAs. Auditions for them are this coming week! Hope I get in!! Will update again on the exact CCAs I’m joining after the results are out. :)
In the meantime, take a look at this pretty and yummy thing I had for breakfast this morning:
It’s a superrr fluffy Hokkaido Cake with strawberry filling! ^_^ Those who know me well will know that I don’t fancy sweet stuff much, but the strawberry cream here wasn’t too sweet at all and I LURRRVVV ITTTT~ ~ *Does a little dance*

Week 2 of school passed by relatively quietly because of the greatly reduced number of through-the-night suppers / HTHTs, but I still managed to meet up with Boogaloo people quite a fair bit. The group photo above was taken at Qiuyan’s surprise (belated) birthday dinner at Pitchstop— the deception at the start was so damn well-executed by Eunice and I man. Hahahaha!
But yep it was a good dinner. Good ambience, good food, good company. Could have had good music too if the place wasn’t having a private event that night, I think!
One of the 3 big 12″ pizzas we ordered for all of us big eaters (hahajk, just me and the guys) during the birthday dinner. Pitchstop‘s pizzas are pretty awesome (and affordable!!!), with many seniors recommending them to me before I visited the place. :)
RARGH!!! EAT ALL THE PIZZAS!!!!
Didn’t get to try the potato wedges (who finished them?!?! :( :( ) but they seemed to be ~not bad~, considering how quickly they were gone. Oh well…
Fried chicken wings
The wings were also pretty bangin’ hehe I had 4 or so.
Thumbs up! NTU freshies, if any of you are reading this, remember to drop by the cafe soon if you want reasonably priced good food. It’s located at Innovation Centre! (This feels like an advertorial hahaha) They serve cake and beer and pastas too. :)
Spent the Monday holiday catching up with 09S69 classmates and, whoa, the turnout was the best I’ve seen in all our class gatherings!!

Tea/dinner at Saizeriya which sells super affordable Italian fare which was honestly pretty decent. Will be checking out their other branches next time. :)
Anyway, 3 weeks ago, I had a good catch-up session with Amirah and Isadora (^^~~Apache~~) at the Handburger in 313@Somerset but forgot to post these photos up so here you go:
I wouldn’t say their food is amazing or totally worth the slightly higher price, but the items are still pretty good and the portions are filling! Plus service was good (although there was one overzealous waiter whom I assume to be new… his enthusiasm was very amusing lol).
This burger is named “The Works” and is our go-to order at the Handburger: Grilled beef, onion rings, crispy bacon strips, egg sunny side up, sauteed basil pesto mushroom, sweet onion jam, cheddar cheese, BBQ and aioli sauce, lettuce and tomato, on a toasted caramelised onion bun.
Max yummy man! :D Sinful indulgence whoooo *smacks lips*
Ok abrupt end byebye gotta study
