“Net”

Sorry for the late blogging, was caught up in a fever / diarrhea / weird illness on last Wednesday night, and then suffered through whole of Thursday moaning and writhing in pain on my bed. Anyway, maybe I’ll write another blog post about this sickness another day since I promised to write about my friend first in my comment, and I’m already late for a couple of days.

So the question is, “why the post title?” Yea, why? Eh…. The first 2 blog posts that I’m being forced requested to write uses something else to describe em, just like how actually 90% of my friends don’t call me by the name. However, this friend of mine is one that belongs to the more “normal” group. In case you guys are going to ask me if I think you all are normal or not, except for this person that I’m writing now… Nope, you all are more on the weird and abnormal side. Hm~ I wanted to type Nette as the title, and then I realize I could have just took out that word and become Net, hahaha. See, I’m so creative when it comes to things that really don’t make any sense at all.

Lemme start this with the usual style of when I got to know her. It was when we were in Secondary school. I remembered this girl who is with this pale white skin. You see, due to our country’s weather, out of the 365 days in a year, there is 365 days that you won’t not see a scorching sun. Even on rainy days, there will definitely also be this sun before or after the rain, so she gave me a pretty deep impression ( I can’t really say deeeeeep ‘cuz I think I was caught by those exceptionally taller ones in the class ). I think I didn’t even had a hard time remembering her name, it pretty much goes well with her look, and since it was a Christian name, it’s much easier. You know how Oi Shan has the Oi-Shan-Face, and Si Hui has the Si-Hui-Face, yup yup, it pretty much worked well on her. However Oi-Shan-Faces and Si-Hui-Faces need a longer time to register. I don’t really remember who did I went recess with at the start of year 1 or how did I even made friends that time. I do remember though, that most of the time she will stand next to the drinking machine, drinking barley. I’m really the kind of person who approach single entities and fly to Mars if I see a group of people, wow, I actually sounds like a pervert here. That’s when I think I started talking to her, don’t remember what we have talked about though (duh).

Anyway, I think that’s how I got to know her, not sure if there were anything before that, guess not. Then, my horrible, terrible nightmare came after that, Chinese Orchestra. By trying to run away from a nightmare, I jumped into this nightmare and got tormented for 4 or less years, which is why I got closer to her who also got stuck in this thingy together, not sure if it was a nightmare for her though.

Sorry for mentioning this again, but I think this is what most of us remembered the most, I think by this time you guys know what I’m talking about. Yup, it’s called <The Incident>, I almost feel like the Pirates of the Carribean theme song is playing behind. Er, anyway. In my first 2 years of prestigious high, our class only had 6 or 7 or 8 boys, and the rest are all girls, which is a pretty good thing. That is why I preferred  the first 2 years of my secondary school life. Er, back to point. Were having a group discussion in god-knows-what-session-is-this session, and this random male monkey came to get paper from our group to fold paper aeroplane, which causes hantu to got distracted ( or I don’t know what ) or what and the most shocking thing happened which is she flew up a temper.

Ah, I forgot to mention her personality. She was an extremely quiet girl, doesn’t have much to say, pretty much easy going (because doesn’t say much), pretty smart, introverted (suspected), hygienic, innocent, pure, very fanatic(idol)  kind of person. The kind that if you went out in a bunch of people, it’s likely that she might be forgotten. “Was” meaning past tense. Yup, she WAS an extremely quiet girl before. Think she started going haywire somewhere in a stage I’m not in her life I suppose, so this has got nothing to do with me, huahuahua. She was crazy about Jay Zhou then, but I think she almost forgotten about him cuz she’s now too overly obsessed with the korean bands. The innocent and pure part remains, people people, look at this, who says that whoever sticks with me get their brain polluted. Tsk tsk tsk, see, I have a living example of a cute, innocent rabbit friend still hoping around me.

Back to the <The Incident>, if you really know a few of this kind of people (quiet, introverted kind), you will know that once they lost their temper, it’s pretty scary. Yup, it stunned the whole class because her shout made the whole class silent. Note, at that point of time, the class was initially very noisy, everybody was in discussions. Imagine tuning a hard metal music from volume about 70, to 0. It’s  that kind of atmosphere. I was shocked too, that was the first time I think I saw her being angry? And it’s definitely the first time I really seen this kind of scene that seems like it came straight out from a drama or movie. I was like *salute* at that point of time.

I can’t use horoscope to compare, I think I only have this Libra friend, or perhaps I forgot who else is there haha, so no comparisons chart.

Okay, since all of the above is past tense. Let me think a little about present tense. After graduation from secondary school, though our meetups were occasional, but is also considered few. You see, personality analysis can only occur to those that meet up frequently, especially on a daily basis, so when you see the other’s face and you just get flared up for no apparent reason, that is the time you grasp the person’s personality (saying it as a LOL, sometimes true for me though). So I’ll briefly write about it.

The biggest difference of her is that I think she’s not that quiet, not introverted, not as hygienic ( I don’t mean dirty ) anymore. She speaks up more and we had a fun time ganging up to bully our beloved hantu, we fooled around talking craps ( which I think she will insist what she say are not craps even though it really is ), and one thing is she actually took up dancing! Perhaps she forgotten about the time in secondary school where we were bring pulled to go for some (*I#_(*$_!@$ *)@)$@(*$@(*#_@!)#( dance course, and I nearly got sabotaged by that stupid hantu to PK her in front of whole class and luckily I did know how to look confident so in the end she chose Net instead. Then, she still wanna to go dancing class, haha. Then the most important part about the hygiene thing. You know how some of the people don’t really like sharing food, drinks and stuffs. I’ve asked water from her before, just like I did from a few of other friends, which is a pretty common thing, but she don’t like sharing saliva with people, which is yeah, I understand, especially since Imma person who can accept a lot of differences in people~ But actually, I think this was changed many years ago, though I don’t remember when haha. This actually made a big difference, it’s like finally being accepted as a friend kind of feeling, which is why I remembered this.

Those that didn’t change is definitely her fanatic (idol wise), which jumps from the overly love for Jay that spreads to a lot of other boy bands. I’m not really sure if the innocence and pure-ness is still around though, since hantu might have polluted her behind my back (*whistle*).

That’s so much, if I can think of anything else, I ‘ll open a topic again, my brain not really functioning well already. Night people.

Hantu for a Friend

What’s this, what’s this people. I wonder since when I have become a consumer service centre which answer queries, requests and demands of customers tch tch tch. I finally managed to break off the constant daily blogging by not blogging yesterday after the 3 eggs. Anyway, this is the same as the previous post, which is also only catered for 1 person, tsk, what the hell man, can somebody please give me some award for being so responsive to people’s requests, if only I was so hardworking at studying like I am at handling customer service man ahaha.

Back to the point. I don’t mean a literal hantu, not that I don’t believe in one, but I have never seen one (and am super thankful for that, my guts is as small as the size of my nose shit man), so this hantu I’m referring here is still a living person, as to why she referred herself as hantu… I think I never knew the origin of the name, it’s not the heavy dot anyway.

I knew this hantu here since we are in secondary school. We were from the same secondary school and the same class ever since Sec 1, and all the way same class till we are in Sec 4. Truth is, I think I really only started knowing here late in Sec 1? Or in Sec 2, I don’t really remember. She was one of the tallest girls in my first 2 years class (which is the same class, we only changed class in Sec 3). At that time, this hantu here has a very weird hairstyle, so with the combination of her “mushroom” hair and glasses, I didn’t really approach her (or did I?). Actually I don’t even remember how I approached anybody when I was in Secondary school haha, my memory can only record newer events and thingies, I don’t remember things that happened so long ago.

I didn’t had a good impression of her (didn’t had a bad one either), but it’s just first impression was I didn’t really wanna to approach her (yeah, I’m such a shallow person, stone me to death people! But use candies instead of stones, I’ll feel happier). I remembered I approached other taller girl, and I remembered the face she gave to the hantu, so I thought this other taller girl is a very proud and arrogant person. However, when I talked to her, she seems a very friendly and funny person, so I didn’t quite understand why she treated hantu that way, so I was kinda a bit wary? curious? of hantu haha.

The start of really hanging out together as a clique was when I think, my another friend brought her into the clique? Actually.. What I remembered was did I have a fight with the other person first? Or I didn’t hang out with her? Or whatever happened, in the end, we just started hanging out together (I think secondary school was really like a drama to me in my whole life, it’s actually the most tiring period in these 20 years I have lived). Anyway, this post is not about my that other friend, which I think I really owe her one too, but since she don’t really come to my blog, let’s just act innocent hahaha.

This hantu here is of the same horoscope sign as me. Yup, that’s right, we’re both Leos. Actually, horoscope signs are just something to just keep a reference to, or just something to occasionally look at it for fun, but one thing that’s very accurate is that I really cannot co-exist with another person of the same horoscope sign as me. Sorry to say this, but hantu is the first Leo friend I had which made me realize this side in me (that I cannot go along with Leos), and then of course as I grew to know another Leo in poly, this proves that this is really true. I recently knew another Leo, which I thought is the only one that goes against the theory, but in the end, it’s just making me super confirm now that I really cannot co-exist with Leo on a daily basis. Leo and Leo can meet occasionally for a period of times and random occasions, but if were to meet everyday, sooner or later, fights will break out, am speaking this from experience.

I’m not saying that hantu is not a good friend, by the way. It’s just most of the Leos behave the same way, if there’s ever another of me that came out, I will pick up a knife and go after her (just kidding).

I keep going out of point. Tsk. Your fault, oi oi. Hantu is a pretty good friend to have, at least her good points make up for the bad points she have (wahaha). She’s the kind that will tolerate whatever bullshits you throw at her, so it’s actually a pretty good thrashbag to have. She seldom lose her temper, so meaning you can bully her in any way you want, it’s really very hard to find such a friend like this.

Hantu is actually one of the most optimistic friend I have, being a super pessimistic person I am, I need to have a few positive friends around to pull me up from Hell. Imagine if me, a super pessimistic person, when met up with any problems and I met another pessimistic person, I think both of us will end up doing stupid things (maybe not, just giving a bad example hehe). Weirdly optimistic sometimes, which might be a good thing anyway, or is it because she’s around with a pessimistic person, that’s why she’s optimistic? Haha, same pole repels that’s why.

Hmm… Ah, hantu is the kind of friend that make you feel loved, why? Once you know her, you will know why, whenever you say bye to her on MSN, she will give you big huggies and kisses. And she’s the kind that really wun hold back on saying she love you etc. That’s the biggest difference between fire sign and water signs, it will be hard to feel like this from friends of water horoscope signs haha. So, when you suddenly wanna to go out and needa find somebody to go out / chill out with, she’s the best choice ( oh gosh, I feel like I’m selling some product over here).

Though I have fought with her, and got angry with her a lot of times before. Still, I think having her as a friend is quite a happy thing too, that’s about it, I don’t know what else to say now, unless I can think of part 2 to write about haha.

Unagi of a Friend

This is the third egg I’m producing three days in a row, so people, if I ain’t gonna blog for a few days, it would be perfectly understandable, pardonable and excusable. Actually this post is going to be catered for only one person because it’s another post that is about a friend of mine, the unagi. Since I’m a salty fish, it’s a common thing that I have another fish as my friend.

The thing about asking other people for idea of blogging is bad, because most of the time, the other person will tell you to blog about him / her. I admit, if any of you guys ask me for topic, I would also ask the person to blog about me HAHAHA! (which I have ask Oi Oi before). Okay, this person I’m going to talk about, I have blogged about her once before, but I think I already deleted that post already, so which makes the whole point invalid (according to her), so here I am, under her forceful demand special request, I have decided to blog this as the third egg in a row.

Actually, I have come to know of her existence ever since we were in Primary School, you know the time I was still busy hiding myself in a corner of the room, trying very hard to distance myself away from everybody and not wasting my energy to socialize around. Kids like these are pretty observant of the people around them though, especially when it’s the people from the same level of them, even if you do not pay special attention to any one in particular, as time goes, you will just get to remember them.

I’ve seen her a couple of times before in school, I didn’t pay much attention anyway, leading my own away-from-the-world life until our school moved to a new campus, and the disastrous merging of our school with another neighborhood school, erm, I don’t remember the name though. Then I was in primary 5 and got to know this perverted person who changed me a little (ayz). Okay, stop with the reminiscing.

And then I got into Secondary school, I saw a few times when I was walking from the MRT station back to my house after school. I recognized her as in the same school as me, so I merely take a few more looks, and continued my way back home. At this point of time, our lives are still 2 straight lines on a graph, I bet she didn’t even noticed me, cuz when I saw her, it’s more like I saw her from the side view, so she is not aware of a stalker person looking at her. Days gone by~ And then I finally ended up in Nanyang Poly.

First year, I still don’t know her yet. There was like 6? Or 8? I think 6 classes for our courses, even if there were combination of classes for lab lessons, is class 1 and 2, 3and 4, 5 and 6, I was in 4, dun remember her class, but we didn’t merge before. It’s even stranger to mingle around with people from other classes when in lecture, Imma introverted person ye know.

What started our 孽缘 good friendship was when we went to year 2. A person from our clique went up to her clique and started mingling around, though I didn’t quite like the idea of making new friends unnecessarily(I would really prefer staying clammed up in my own shell), luckily it was because of her that I’ve made myself a few more friends, and especially this unagi.

Okay, after such a long long long and totally no point introduction, I’m finally going to talk about the heavy dot. Hehe, I’m such a pro crapper (eh, I will let the God of bullshitting set to Oi Oi, I’m really not interested in vying for this LOL).

This unagi here, is quite a smart fish, I’m also a smart fish though (have to compliment myself while compliment others HAHA). She’s the kind that can play games with you, talk crap with you, and then when it comes to codes presentation days, you will see her work is O_O. But when you recalled on the days you “salted” with her, you will have totally no idea when she done her work, tsk tsk, such a cunning little fish over here, serves her right to be served on a dish!!! (kidding~).

She’s a quiet person, but when you really get to know her, you will that it completely false “true”. Even if you randomly crapped to her that the weather is good, she can also crap back with you whether the weather is really good or not, and whether it will rain later in the day (just an example). You know, I have a lot of friends that are pretty introverted when you first know them, but once you know them in reality, you would have wish that they were really quiet all the way they could be their natural self from the start. Cuz you see, I was innocent and friendly when you guys know me, and I’m still innocent and friendly after you really know me. Wakaka.

She’s the only Gemini friend I have, the other Gemini I know is my brother, and because when I look at my brother, I kinda start to think if she is another kind of character at her home. Geminis are commonly known to have split personalities (just don’t know how split they really are, are they as splitted as my hair ends?), look at this Gemini in my house, he’s such an ass at home, but when he’s out, his characters changed 100 degrees(not 180 degrees because he’s still a bit of an ass outside). Hm, at least it’s kinda true that Geminis are pretty intelligent things.

Oh, a very big good attribute of this unagi friend of mine is her helpfulness. You know, since I am conscious of the people around me ever since in Secondary school, I noticed that people don’t really like helping people around them, especially concerning academically-wise. People have the usual thought of “if I teach this person what I knew, what if in the end he / she get a better result than I did?”, at least there is a person who honestly told my friend this straight in her face. Actually, even if he didn’t say this out loud, I also know that people are like this, because truthfully speaking, I’m also like this, that’s why I said I’m evil right? Haha, sometimes it’s because I find it troublesome to teach too, and especially when what the other party wants is for you to settle their problem, and not understand what the logic is. However, if you ask this unagi, she will do all that she can to help you, and using her utmost effort (she’s super resourceful, I tell you. LOL). Truthfully speaking, it’s also an attribute that I felt worried for her because there are people who would make use of this kind of attribute especially when she’s now in University and there are full of cunning and selfish people (I tend to think that smart == selfish, because I have seen a lot of smart people being super selfish, of course there are a few otherwise).

She lives just a couple blocks down my house, I asked her to deliver Kois to me (I don’t mean the fish, I mean the bubble tea), but she refused. Oh wells. This is just a random statement.

Anyway, one thing she really touches me is that when I was stuck up in that ulu pandan place of my internship where I had completely no access to MSN and anything at all, she was the only one who actually kept me company by going to that forum (initially) and chatted over there. At least, what I felt is that not many people would have go this far to this kind of trouble for their friends, I’m not sure if I would do that same if I’m her. We did evolved from the forum to skype though, and she was online most of the time to crap to me. Once again, I had to thank the person from my clique that brought our 2 cliques together haha.

Okay, aren’t you touched that I actually blogged more than 1000 words to describe you. And I actually sincerely blogged about this, I really owed LOSErs a blog post too. Haha. Okay, Oi, Lynnette, I will blog a post about you soon, as for that Rosabella, it’ll depends HAHA.

Don’t be too touched unagi, I owed you a thanks for the period in that internship period and the rest of the time after that and the help you have given me for so long xDDDDD. I’m signing off now, going to make my 寿包 to eat. And yup, this post is almost 1500 words LOL!
