Task #004

06 August 06

Your Ian Update: He says that he's still suffering but hanging on, that he has to go outfield for three days starting Wednesday, his sleeping quarters match those of the POWs (ahem, SPOILT!), and that he's counting down the days till he comes home. Long way more to go.

I figured that if I were to talk about the whole surprise party now it'd be really anti-climatic, so I won't. Maybe another time. I can't update this so often because I have exams in less than two, yes, I actually have to study. But meanwhile, hold on to your panties (underwear, whatever), Project6Wings will be back in full force soon.

3 hours...

ok so i went out for the movie with char (excellent movie btw... Adamn Sandler's Click)... then headed back home for dinner with char. at the elevator, i heard this maniacal scream of terror from some lady and i turned around to see wynne and a can of pepsi in my face... then came the eggs from melissa and aaron... then the flour from joe and i dunno who else... my mom cooked A LOT of food for everyone, which included Pastor Alvin and his family, Yun Ling, Mike, Goldie, Shing, Miss Tok, Aaron, Char, Phen, Melissa, Wynne and Joe. I was really surprised and i didnt see it coming at all... and it was a pleasant surprise.

Now everyone's gone home and i have to face thailand in a few hours. The whole last minute party just reminded me of how much my friends and family love me... truly i'm blessed and touched, not to mention it makes going to thailand sadder, but at the same time i know i've found the pple who i can depend on and trust, and i'll carry that with me as i go up.

To all the people in my life now, mostly from Third Place, thank you for accepting me for who i am and being my friends... words cant explain how much you all mean to me and how much i love all you guys.

12 hours...

this feeling of dread... i really hate it. it sucks to feel this way. somehow my mind has already registered that it's only gonna be for 4 weeks. i'll be back soon. that it's not gonna be that bad. then on the other part of me, it really aches and hurts to leave my friends and family. why i'm stuck in this state of emotional breakdown, i have no clue. somethings that the mind can comprehend, the heart cannot bear to face.

gonna meet char now for a movie. i hope that really cheers me up...

stop the pain. i just wanna be numb and let it fade away.

52 Hours....

....before i leave for Thailand. sigh. the weekend was good, though i fell sick just before we reached walas. the store duty and guard duty last thurs and fri really did me in. i didnt let that stop me though. my last weekend shouldnt just disappear just cos i'm a tad under the weather. I enjoyed myself a lot, esp on sat night with Phen, Char, Jae and Wynne and the flaming lamborghini... an experience i dont think i'll forget. Oh yes, UnXpected too...

Sunday was fun though i was a tad disappointed cos several pple couldnt turn up in the end. not to mention, it should've been more happening rather than just sitting around, eating and talking.

Monday really sucked having to go back to camp... furthermore i was on store duty. had only 5hrs of sleep that night after all the crap. on tues i had to go home and pack all my stuff to load in for thailand. so i expected to only return to camp at 6pm... i tried to get some sleep at noon but i got several calls and eventually they wanted me to be back by 2pm. i was already pretty pissed, but i took a cab down, only to reach camp and find out all the pple who called me were out of camp and there was nothing to do. wasted my time and rest. even more pissed... then they tell me that i need to come back on National Day to help pack. i couldnt take it anymore and i wasnt feeling well so i got a MC. Hence i spent the whole day at home today. was nice to just chill and relax... sleep in and not think so much.

Tomorrow's the last day of work and friday should be off before the flight on sat morning 2am. i cant imagine having to go into camp on fri morning again. i hope they're not mad enough to do that. then again they've done crazier things. stupid disorganised regular monkeys in the army.

This may or may not be my last post before i leave and the photos arent uploading for some weird reason. in the meantime, char will guestblog here and there i think, =p.

i dont wanna go away, dont wanna leave... all those who mean so much to me.

Wala & Gardens on Saturday

Right now I'm not only the guest blogger, I'm also the picture provider. Nice one, Ian! So I took the liberty of adding contrast to the picture I took with him because I look very white and bloodshot and scarier than usual, so yes, if you must see the original ugly one it's on my blog. But anyway.

Wala was pretty fun. Ian didn't do his 21 shots as his pre-birthday...thing, which sucked, but he did have a flaming lamborghini, and I swear, it didn't do anything for him at all. He was just stoned for awhile. And Jaesson! Hahaha, the entertainer of the night - I salute you.

So two jugs of beer, one plate of chicken wings, one plate of fries, yelling Mr. Big and Bon Jovi, one cab ride, two ATM withdrawals, two egg pratas, one Zapple and one...(I forgot what Ian had, teh ping? milo ping?), one stolen PSP, one freaked out Ian and two evil laughing friends later...Saturday night (well, Sunday morning) ended on a high note.

Then the party on Sunday consisted of two separate sets of friends, polaroids, dunking, and smashing the pie on The Cousin instead of The Birthday Boy. A lot of laughs there, I must say. Project6Wings will post pictures when they're uploaded, for tonight though, he's stuck in camp but will be back tomorrow morning. Go bug him for them!

For me, it's a shower and studying and then the Desperate Housewives finale.

That is all. I'm out.

XXXX, Charissa
