Diploma Show

For those who still read my blog, the graduation show is

1st & 2nd of March, at the Temasek Convention Center located in the outskirts of Temasek Poly far away from every convenience. From 10am-5pm. Come to see me perform acrobatic tricks for peanuts!

As much as i want to be jumping up and down and screaming with JOY about my upcoming graduation, i find myself being strangely ambivalent about the whole matter. Could be because the stress about my Diploma Show and the money i've wasted on it. I shudder to think about how much i've spent so far - not including cab fees. Could be because i have absolutely no idea what the heck to do after graduation. Could be because i wish, that for just a little more, i could still be a student - not necessarily at Temasek Polytechnic. Anywhere is fine. I don't want to grow up yet.

The road ahead me is blank. like xerox paper white. not even a spot of dust on it. I'd always thought it should be diamond dust coated, reflecting the bright future ahead of me. It should be glimmering, sparkly white, but for now it's just plain, stark white.

a disappointment, i'm sure.

hello world.

mere words cannot describe HOW HOW HOW GOOOD i feel right now. no fyp, no fyp, NO FYP!


and even more so the new year ang paos. I've collected my first ones today. BAHAHAHAHA. even though it will ultimately go to my Dip show funds. and of course repaying my $250 debt to chunz.


movie marathon with my cousin and bro(sucker only watched one movie) last night...today..? and returned home at 2.30am with china girl taking space in the living room refusing to open the fucking door. my poor maid, awoken from her beauty sleep.


anyways. i digress.

Protege is a stupid movie, artsy fartsy wannabe and failing miserably. It is OVERUSED and CLICHED. China girl says her friends say it's a good movie. i say they have completely no taste whatsoever, pretentious little uppity shitheads. China girl recommended Hellrider if i was adverse to shows like Protege. Pisser. I'll piss all over you.

JUST FOLLOW LAW is a fucking brilliant movie. every singaporean with half a brain should catch it. Fann Wong was hilarious in this show and yeah, of course. Any show with JackNeo is bound to have overtly political tones. But I LOVE IT!

Epic Movie... is exactly what you'd expect it to be. Stupid, brainless, switch off your brains and watch it. Guaranteed laughs if you catch the parodies. But most should, it's too obvious not to.
WhiteBitch was funny too. Went like... (when reading an IM message) "The.....kids....have....es..kay..puu..der..... The kids...have...eskaypuuder.... The kids have eskayypuuudderr... THE KIDS HAVE ESCAPED!" and the shortie sidekick(literally) rolled his eyes. HILARIOUS!

I only woke up to what a MacHead i am when the WhiteBitch threw her apple powerbook at her shortie sidekick and only my (extremely loud) gasp was heard in the theatre. like *HERRRRRRRHHHHHHH!!!!!!*

and now to lament how apple powerbooks are popping up everywhere. Epic Movie...Just Follow Law.. IT'S FUCKING EVERYWHERE. *cries*

apple not cool anymore. there. i've just said it.

*ducks miscellaneous flying objects hurled at great speed*


don't you just love reading my blog? :P

i sometimes wonder if there is a person sitting up there, laughing at all our stupidity and misfortunes. or one who tolerates all that wreckage that humanity causes before striking out in retaliation. beware the fury of the patient man. how else would you explain the crappy weather these days, fucking hot sun in the day and cold wind at night. the world is doomed. everything is spinning off course. and we have no cause for complaint because we are the reason for it.

a quick sketch for a design schoolmate who needed to know how to sew drawstring pouches. i strangely like the line quality of the drawing here together with the text. and it is of no relevance at all to this post. i just wanted to put this up.


this is 2:28am in the morning and i am unable to sleep for the fact that i have yet again. no motivation to do my FYP while unable to go into dreamland. it is at times like these i curse the wretchedness of my existence and curse all of TDS curriculum in general.

that said. i just have to say how much i absolutely ADORE the weather these days. so cool i don't even have to switch on the fan. so cool i can wrap myself up in the blanket and read Stardust by Neil Gaiman and not feel warm at all.

awesome. and i should really be doing the bloody FYP right now. i just cannot seem to summon the strength to do so. not when snuggling in bed with a good book is so marvelously tempting.

what would be even more perfect is if i had hot chocolate or chai tea (a newfound love of mine) and a craneberry muffins. i love craneberries. love them to death.

i can't decide if i should be disgusted at my laziness or be happy that i'm enjoying the breeze coming through my window right now.

yeah. enjoy it. i should. :D

Okay. and since i cannot sleep, and stardust isn't holding very much apeal because i've read it twice already, i'll write about something i've always wanted to address, but couldn't really be bothered simply because it doesn't really matter - i hardly have enough blog readers for me to warrant justification. Just in the interest of clearing space out in my brain i'll engage in this verbal diarrhoea to clear out my brain because i feel there are too many things in it and i fear it might spontaneously explode someday soon.

The reason why i have chosen to keep my life(blog) and art(blog) separate plagues me every now and then. I do know of many illustrators/artists, etc keep a journal about their life and their illustrations and somehow in every post one finds that art/illustration is intertwined with their daily life. the decision for me to keep separate blogs wasn't a conscious one, for the only thing that i wanted to do at the time was to have 2 blog addresses. i know, lame. :P whatever! this blog is mainly for me to vent my frustrations, express my opinions and (very) occasionally a wittily insightful post or two, and the other blog for me to share my art and get critiques for it. but more and more it seems ridiculous to have two blogs when i am one and the same person with the same brain and the same hands.

yet i find myself reluctant to switch to a single blog because i've established two identities within the two blogs. with this blog, i can be more relaxed, the silly, the stupid, the whiner, the one with strong opinions part of me comes out and the way i interact with the readers of this blog too reflects this part of me. you are on a more intimate basis with the person that i am and i find myself feeling closer to you than the readers of the other blog. on phreaque-art i'm mostly a neutral person, like a blank canvas without personality and naturally, people respond to only my art (and not me as a person).

as of now i'm quite perplexed as to how to merge the two together.
