Doodle!
Sunday. 12.21.14 8:05 pm
For my Xmas gathering with my girlfriends, I was extremely late to meet them at the restaurant. I took for granted that my place is near to the venue that I tried booking a taxi 10 minutes before the meeting time. And I could not get a taxi!

What worse is I have not wrapped one of the presents! I don't have nice wrappers, which is just magazine, but I am already very late that I don't have time to wrap!! What to do??!! I ended up grabbing a red pen on my table and started drawing flowers and birds on the gift box.

And tada! Creativity saved the day! Phew. Luckily I think fast!

Singletini
Tuesday. 12.9.14 9:31 pm
I often read chicklit whenever I am stress or just wanting to air my mind. Yup. Chicklit genre does a good job for me because they make me laugh. Singletini is one of the most enjoyable chicklit books I have ever read.

But I won't spend money on buying them because I prefer brain-teasing stories like detective. My source for such genre is drying up because the library is not stocking up any more story books but textbooks. Sigh. Where should I get them now??

Anyways... I should write my own version too!

Sweat bug
Sunday, December 7, 2014
Today is a productive day for me.

I spring clean my room. Darn right. I spring clean my room for 2015. Let see how long the neatness last.

I threw away a lot of catalogue that I kept for the past 10 years that give me art inspiration but they are a little old and... I can see the internet now for reference. Bye bye papers. I took out three big bags of papers... And I am giving away some good non-fiction books that are hard to get in bookstores. Hope my campus library know how to appreciate them.

And then... when I took shower, my arms were itchy. I have used exfoliate to rub but no success. Luckily, my Chinese medicine doctor taught me how to attend to such problem.

I used sea salt to rub over my arms and ta-da the bugs were dead. Ugh.. I hate it when my arms or face get itchy from invisible bugs.

Forgotten generation
Saturday. 11.29.14 10:24 am
I like Morning Musume but only the older generations and felt sad that the older generations were still best. I think that's because the agency was smart in having several segments to feature the members own personality.



In this video, I find it sad.. or actually.. feeling don't members feel embarrass to keep singing those songs after their graduation for like over 10 years ago? And the way they dressed... wow... don't really reflect their age... it's like depicting a bunch of ladies that cannot forget their golden moments...

And then seeing the present generations... they are actually quite good with their energetic dance. The standard for this group has indeed gone up. And the director of morning musume did mention before that their strategy is to brand the group with their dance.

I watched other videos of the younger generations. They all can sing...

That's great news. I shall watch them closely. =)

Academia nuts
Sunday. 11.23.14 8:48 am
Right, someone must have eaten lots macadamia nuts.

I wrote a research proposal after graduated 10 years ago. And.. I approached an associate professor about the proposal after he suggested me to look into the Social Exchange Theory.

I read it and I found 'what the hell' that someone could come up with such theory. It was interesting yet confusing to comprehend fully in-depth and to apply.

So anyways, I wrote it and sent to two lecturers. One of them is the associate professor. He asked for a meet up and I appeared.

He has a lot of feedback but throughout he kept on apologising if he was too blunt. The feedback was not really blunt but luckily it was constructive. And he said... oh well let me summarise:

Your proposal is laughable so please don't share it with others.

Ok. I cried for a few seconds. And then I went to another lecturer who I wished she would supervise me but she has resigned. What a pity. I went over to her office and sought solace in the hot choc and cake. And she came up with a framework for me to consider.

And she said it was not that bad. I have written a framework of my idea and so it just needed some tweaking. It didn't deserve his comment. And the proposal has to be one page not some 3000 words he kept repeating that I didn't do so.

And he wished me luck in getting it right in one month.

Err...

And then he commented that I am bringing an industrial problem to the academic world hence it's a no-no. I got to speak the 'academic' language so bringing an earthly problem is a no-no. And then he said he was from the commercial world and now speaking the language.

If that's the case, why do people go to university for study when it is not applicable in the real world when the real world does not speak the academic language?

Right, he must have eaten too much of macadamia nuts. Or I not enough to reach his standard.

Manga ended
Saturday. 11.15.14 6:45 am
OMG.

Naruto has ended after more than years. I finished reading it today. And I didn't cry... but I feel the few chapters before chapter 700 were done in a rushed. The sequence of actions were not clear and leave a lot to the readers imagination to comprehend. I am very happy with the pairing though I don't vote for anyone to be with anyone in particular but it was truly happy ending. There will be a sequel to fill in the gap of the millions of readers. Neji died. I am sad for him.

The next manga I decided to complete is Gakuen Alice. My other favourite which was equivalently exciting. For this, I CRIED. Sad and not very happy ending but good. And I hope there's a sequel because it looks in that direction...

What's next?
