i'm flying off to bangkok in abt 10 hrs time. Happy new year to everybody! 2006 has been rather kind to me. In chronological order:
2. NZ trip with team NZ. lots of memories!
3. law camp, where i meet the bunch of crazy pple in OG7.. incidentally we swept all awards, including mr NUS and erm.. drag queen... haha
4. start of law sch. honestly uni life is really fun and drudgery in equal measures. we kinda like law sch life outside sch, but within it we just groan and moan and bitch..
5. exam results.. i tink i did rather well.. and brudder relax i'm NOT going to appeal my results :)
and of corz, i met u.
something random and unrelated, but i just tot of memorable movie quotes frm 2006:
1. Casino Royale: "Do i look like i give a damn?" (when bond was asked how he liked his martini prepared)
2. 黄金甲：“天下万物，朕给你，才是你的。朕不给，你不能抢”（by chow yuen fatt)
3. Nite at the musuem: "Dum Dum, I want gum gum." (by the easter island statue, to ben stiller)
oh well short term memory.. i can only remember these few lines.. or maybe i havent been watching enough movies..

"Indeed, an even cursory perusal of the formulation with respect to the "two-stage process" set out in the quotation in the preceding paragraph – together with a comparison with the "two stage test" (set out at  above) – will confirm that the tests are, in substance and effect, the same. If so, then, in the famous words of William Shakespeare in Romeo and Juliet (Act 2, Scene 2) (also quoted in the Singapore High Court decision of Chua Kwee Chen, Lim Kah Nee and Lim Chah In (as Westlake Eating House) v Koh Choon Chin  3 SLR 469 at ): What's in a name? That which we call a rose / By any other name would smell as sweet."
What's in a name? That which we call a rose / By any other name would smell as sweet."Random trivia.. i didnt noe they quote shakespeare in judgments too. and they even pinpoint the scene!

Northies go to supper
Today marks the inaugural "Northies go to supper" event. Ask Andre why he likes to divide pple up according to where they live though.
Supper with JQ and Fats is interesting, to say in the least. Andre too, when he's actually physically with us (half the time he was talking on the phone with "Winnie"). JQ sort of made a resolution (or rather i made it for him) to quit his obsession with anything starting with a C, like Cussing, Clubbing, Cabbing, Ch**yls.. Fats as usual, was the subject of our jacking. Me? i was just thinking how funny it would be if we replay this, plus all the usual stuff we do in my car in law camp next year.

this is the first christmas eve in a while that i've spent at home instead of meeting frens or going to town, but then i dun feel alone at all :)
christmas eve's eve dinner last nite was a hoot. there were a total of 7 pple, 6 guys and a gal, and they bought 2 roast chickens, 1 turkey, 1 5kg log of ham, lotsa lettuce, and a log cake. its small wonder that we couldnt finish the food at all! and we made a mess of the kitchen. what started as trying to heat up the turkey in the oven ended in dislodging the door of the oven. luckily the kitchen had other apparatus to heat up the food. we felt mightily guilty abt "destroying" the oven, until the host assured us that his sis and her frens managed to destroy the entire cooking hood many years ago!
its funny how we finally managed to have regular gatherings 5 years after we graduated frm DHS. our unlikely combination of a class, with subject combinations as diverse as history e-lit and bio c-lit, worked out pretty well in the end. thats y christmas makes u happy, to be able to meet up with old frens and tok cok and play mahjong into the nite. of corz, my brudders r going to say again that playing mahjong is damn ah pek behaviour, but well, its the conversations between games that count. i've finally managed to unravel the "mystery" behind my fren's relationship, 2 years after she got together with her other half. and its pretty surreal too, to listen to my female frens' woes abt leaving university in half a year's time and working when i've only started 1 sem of law sch.
bangkok is in a week's time!

This has been a holiday of extremes.. great first sem in more ways than 1, a record high mj win, followed straight by a record high mj loss.. if the first sem is an accurate indication of what law sch is like, then really, law sch is equal parts of pure terror (when burton asks qns in tutorials), fun (all the mj and Kboxing sessions, not to mention shopping with my bimbotic brudder and you), and decadence (corduroy and finch! and not to mention the party at jo-joy's bali-sque house)..
and of corz, i'm getting light headed recently, so pls bear with me =)

i havent been updating since end of exams.. hmm let me see if i can recall wat happened in the space of a week..
ok fri was quite a killer. the contract paper was not too easy, not too hard, but i got a feeling that its pretty screwed up. but aniwae, u worry abt it only when its 26th dec, and not earlier..
the law pple went to timbre after that for a nite of erdinger and music.. and JQ just proved that he can really enter next year's muscle wars, when he cracked my pint of beer by merely TOASTING IT.. i will upload the pix later as proof..
after a late nite supper geylang, we had to drag ourselves up to go to sch for the christmas charity briefing, which actually turned out to be a time for sai gang.. went to vivocity later and was amazed again by how big the place is, and how expensive GAP turned out to be.. haha
Mahjong at nite was damn fun, when i conducted my own "massacre at woodlands".. tats the first time i won so much in a session, only to be upended by auntie Ng's 3 "xiao xiang gong" in the same session..
had 2 birthday parties in a nite... first off was the one for cheryl, where the food was good and the cake was superb. was quite sian to find out that pple have been working for 2 weeks already when i just barely ended exams.. and of corz, zhiming's reaction when i asked him a qn was priceless..
If there's a word to sum up the 2nd party, it had to be "decadent". i tot i had arrived at bali when i reached jo joy's place, and the champagne and roast beef was good too (or at least i heard they were good, for i nv actually drank/ate them).. the roast chicken was good though, i tried it on my way out.. and if it was good cold, it gotta be good when its piping hot! throwing pple in the pool became a new pasttime for law students, while it was hilarious to see zhengxi's "trying not to show disappointment" reaction when sam gave him pens instead of his oakleys. we shuld haf bought the disney sunglasses we saw tat day at vivocity and put it in the pouch. that will really make him damn sian diao..
Mon was christmas charity day, where everybody brought kids to the zoo while having only 4 hrs of sleep last nite.. the kids in our grp were adorable, and i tink pak weng and dennis would really haf fond memories of tippi.. haha.. the 3 guys under our care were really cute, and Fats was quite sad when the youngest one said he didnt like her.. hahaha
Sand art later back at sch was quite funny.. my kid insisted on filling santa's beard with pink sand, and santa's hat with purple.. i tink his secret favourite colours were pink and purple.. everybody ard us gave incredulous looks when zhengxi and i praised him and said the sand art was very pretty.. haha
Dinner later was good.. esp JQ's recommendation, some green spinach thingy that looks like baby shit but turns out good.. and i finally got tempted and went to book my air tix, so i'm flying off to bangkok with them on the 31st! haha luckily there were still air tix out..
This is where my memory starts to get a bit fuzzy.. i tink i basically slacked at home on tues.. oh and my digital set top box spoiled, which is a very very big blow to a tv addict like me.. JQ even suggested that i enroll into "TVB annoymous" or something..
i went out to watch happy feet, and the ending is just incredulous.. i mean, saving the earth from global warming just by dancing?? it will really be good if the solution was so simple. but aniwae, its a great movie, and little mumble is especially cute..
The scv repairman finally came and my tv's back in working order.. watched casino royale at nite with a fren, who made me feel damn underdressed (what with her wearing a dress when i was only in jeans and t shirt).. casino was real good, although i still dun really noe wat M's real name is.. and EVA GREEN IS HOT.. but james bond here seemed really noob, being so brash and all.. and if this is supposed to be starting pt for james bond, then y the hell are the dates in the movie "2006"? u mean he started in 2006 and travelled back in time or something?
Supper late at geylang was good, though i bet the old uncles had a feast for their eyes when my fren walked past.. and best of all, she's oblivious to it..
I think thats abt as much as i can remember.. pix will be up soon if i can just organise them..

I went out to Chinatown with my family for dinner yesterday.. funny how they treat it like i'm on hol already when i still have contract hell...
And surprise! see wat i saw on my way the restaurant.. for the uninitiated, "精武" (jing wu) martial arts hall was the name of the sch that 霍元甲 (huo yuan jia) founded way back in China (go watch the movie to find out!).. perhaps he started a branch here in Singapore? that would mean like he's one of the first few to embrace globalisation before schs like HC or Raffles international actually did so!
The dinner was some scrumptious meal at some shanghainese restaurant.. and the highlight of the meal was 大闸蟹 or hairy crab! the roe is seriously creamy and nice.. haha and once again its all thanks to my sis who treated the whole family.. so nice to have a lawyer in the family who has no time to spend her salary eh? the family gets the benefit in the end..

torts is finally over. funny how all ur self prep notes seem wasteful when u consider that its only going to be used for 1 sem. pple r just scaring themselves silly by doing post-mortem. like wat rachel said, there's abt 101 ways to argue every single issue. thats wat lawyers r for isnt it? if there's only 1 set ans, then there's really no pt putting us through LAWR hell.. and in any case, post mortem is just an exercise of "i think, u tort, who confirm?" (haha i just cant resist putting this in..)

just a random thought.. if i see someone putting a disclaimer in the car, i wouldnt even dare to sit in the car in the first place.. how good would the driver be if he required a disclaimer in the first place? i tink the driver can plead a defence of stupidity and lack of common sense.. haha torts crazy..
