Funny Business Memo

Thanks to Grace for sending me this funny Fwd: email. Hehehhe...Thanks!


In order to assure the highest levels of quality work and productivity from employees, it will be our policy to keep all employees well trained through our program of Special High Intensity Training (S.H.I.T). We are trying to give employees more S.H.I.T than anyone else.

If you feel that you do not receive your share of S.H.I.T on the job, please see your Manager. You will be immediately placed at the top of the S.H.I.T list, and your Manager shall be responsible for seeing that you get all the S.H.I.T you can handle.

Employees who don't take their S.H.I.T will be placed in Departmental Employee Evaluation Programs (D.E.E.P S.H.I.T). Those who fail to take D.E.E.P S.H.I.T seriously, will have to go to Employee Attitude Training (E.A.T S.H.I.T). Since our Managers took S.H.I.T before they were promoted, they don't have to do S.H.I.T anymore, and are all full of S.H.I.T already.

If you are full of S.H.I.T, you may be interested in a job, training others. We can add your name to our Basic Understanding Lecture List (B.U.L.L S.H.I.T). Those who are full of B.U.L.L S.H.I.T will get the S.H.I.T jobs, and can apply for promotion to Director of Intensity Programming, (D.I.P S.H.I.T).

If you have further questions, please direct them to our Head Of Training, Special High Intensity Training (H.O.T S.H.I.T).

Emotionally disturbed

Shim says: "Lots of sarcasm along the way. Content unappropriate to minors who can't tell the difference between sarcastic and realistic comments."

! Starts here !

Of course everyone feels that, especially when there's school tomorrow. Oh joy! I can barely contain my "excitement". Wheee! See how "excited" I am? I can't resist being enthusiastic about it. (>.>)

Yea, I have to follow the normal routine again. No more sleeping at 11 p.m. after playing the Movies. Homework...check check done. Wake up early at 5.55 a.m. and groan and moan for 10 minutes before waking up. Then, I'll drag myself to the bathroom and do the magic. After that, head down the stairs and eat a crummy but presentable breakfast. So "delicious" man!

Then it's time for me to head to school. My mom drops me off the highway, and I dash across it to St. Andrew's School. It's better than riding a roller coaster ride, I tell you. It's more exhilirating! Of course, after climbing countless flight of stairs, I finally reach THE CLASS, my eye somehows exaggerates the words F4S2. As I enter the class feeling very weary and before I get the chance to slump down at my seat, here's the common scenario. I call it "Post Holidays and Pre-7.15 a.m. Situation"

Date: Monday, 27 March 2006 (Yes, I have psychic powers and I can see ahead of the future)
Time: Roughly about 6.55 a.m. to 7.00 a.m.

Entah siapa: "Shim! Lend me your Physics homework!"

And suddenly, I will have been surrounded by my frenzied entourage, who keep yelling my name as if I'm the star. I should be beaming with pride, you say. Not! I tell you, it's like as if the people suddenly go dumb and they keep running to me asking for my homework, not autograph. I really really dislike that and it can ruin my already bad hair day.

And mind you, I have to endure this for I don't know how many freaking years. And because I am such a "goodie-goodie", I couldn't say no. That's just rude, you know. Because whenever I need help, I will surely be turned down if I do so. Just because "you don't lend me your homework in the first day of second term yadda yadda yadda". Bah! Humans! That's their nature (myself not excluded, I have to say this honestly).

Hey, just leave me alone in peace okay? That's your problem if you don't do your homework. And copying is just a temporary solution, it's only going to hurt you in the long run. And stop taking advantage of me, I'm so sick of these, and besides, there are "other sources" like ahem! and ahem! who would be MORE THAN willing to help you out. Just stop depending on me as your answer source. Yea, I know it's superbly easy to copy work, but it's not easy doing it by yourself.

"You don't pay school fees just to be a photocopying machine," quoted from Miss Ong.

Okay? Got that clear? Good! (As if)

Sigh~ It seems like this is the inevitable. I am there for this very purpose. Your last-minute answer source before 7.15 a.m. Like I can do much about it. People keep throwing at me their tantrums, ultimatums, threats, bribes etc. Yea, like I'm a sponge. Soaking it all. And helping you with a favour. And I can't say no. I'm such a scadery-cat, go me! Tell me an emotional story and make me go boo-hoo-hoo and it's all yours. So sad, so sad, woe is me!

! Ends here !

So please, those who are able to go online and read this, I really hope you don't ask me to you-know-what and I know who you people are. I wasn't born yesterday to let this happen without me aware of it you know, but I'm kind of dumb too, lending you all this and getting the copee and the copier into trouble (once or twice already).

I might need to attend classes on "How to say No! : The Technique, Style and Proper Way of doing it" and probably be part of Homeworks Being Copied Anonymous Society...

The fine print: I don't make this post to upset my fellow friends. I really would like to help you guys (maybe once or twice to save your skins) by doing this taboo activity, but then, it really gets on my nerves at times as my hard work gets copied off just like that and its frowned upon by the school and the teachers (and me). Honestly, I do copy from others at times, I'm no angel too, you know ;). Just that I'm expressing my displeasure (sort of) to all.

In order words, do your homework at home, not at school. While it might be too late to say that. Because there's tons of homework given for holidays, and it will take you over the span of at least a few days to finish (in a relaxed pace).

Holidays about to end soon. The end is near! And I haven't do some of my homework yet. Bummer! So damn short man, and time passing so fast isn't helping either. Anyway, I have not came online recently because I was so engrossed into playing my games, i.e. The Movies, Crash Tag Team Racing and Sims 2. They're pretty cool games, I recommend them to everyone =P. If you want more information about these games you can go here and look up for them.

I want to share with everyone this funny Fwd: mail from Wan Ying (thanks =P):

28 + 4 ways to know if you're Chinese

1. You unwrap gifts very carefully, so you can save and reuse the wrapping (and especially those ribbons).

2. When there is a sale on toilet paper, you buy 100 rolls and store them in your closet or in the bedroom of an adult child who has move out.

3. You keep a Thermos of hot water available at all times.

4. You save grocery bags, tin foil, and tin containers. You use the grocery bags to hold garbage.

5. You hate to waste food

a ) Even if you're totally full, if someone says they're going to throw away the leftovers on the table, you'll finish them. (Your mom will give a lecture about starving kids in Africa)

b ) You have Tupperware in your fridge with three bites of rice or one leftover chicken wing.

6. You don't own any real Tupperware-only a cupboard full of used but carefully rinsed margarine tubs, take out containers, and jam jars.

7. You have a collection of minature shampoo bottles that you take every time you stay in a hotel.

8. You wipe your plate and utensils or wash them in a small basin of hot water before you eat every time you go to a restaurant.

9. You own a rice cooker and a slow cooker.

10. You wash your rice at least 2-3 times before cooking it.

11. You fight (literally) over who pays the dinner bill.

12. You have a teacup with a cover on it.

13. If you're under age 20, you own a really expensive walkman if you're over 20, you own a really expensive camera.

14. You're a wok user.

15. You only make long distance calls after 7pm.

16. You prefer your shrimp with the heads and legs still attached-it means they're fresh.

17. You never call your parents just to say hi.

18. If you don't live at home, when your parents call, they'll ask if you've eaten, even if it's midnight.

19. Your parents tell you to boil herbs and stay inside when you get sick. They also tell you not to eat fried foods or baked goods because they're heaty (yeet hay in Cantonese).

20. You e-mail your Chinese friends at work, even though you only sit 10 feet apart.

21. You always cook too much.

22. You eat every last grain of rice in your bowl, but don't eat the last piece of food on the table.

23. You starve yourself before going to all you can eat buffet.

24. You know someone who can get you a good deal on jewelry or electronics, computers.

25. You own your own meat cleaver and sharpen it.

26. Your toothpaste tubes are all squeezed paper-thin.

27. You know why this list consists of only "28"reasons.

28. You take this message and forward it to all your Chinese friends.


There are four more indications that you need to add 8-)

*29 You wrap with napkins all the knives, spoons andforks of the airline that you fly on and put in your travelbag as souvenirs

*30 You never forget to take with you all the unused bath and facial tissues when you check out from the hotel because you beieve that you have paid its all.

*31 You will laugh at yourself when you read all of them

*32 And you will always proud because you're Chinese

Yea! Rock on! Wow! I can't believe most of them are true! Hahahaha, yet funny as well =).

Holidays Already?!

Man, time flies by so fast! I can't believe the hectic weeks are already over, and the holidays are calling my name! Wow! Wow! Wow!!! Kekke, I didn't do well for 1st Assessment Test though, in fact, I think it was done quite badly la. Did not study. Hai~~ But I deserve the "sort-of-crappy-marks" la. But, I still have another try at MYE =).

What should I do during the holidays? It's going to be boring again. The next thing I know, the holidays are already over and its always at that time I formed a plan to do something. This time, I'm determined to stick a time-table made by me, for myself =P.

Play all day.
Sleep all night.

So easy to follow! Anyone can do it! Enjoy your holidays, people! =D (coz it lasts for only 10 days! Bwahahaa)

BGIC IV (Continuation)

Day 3
General Assembly was held. The ceromony began with some orangutan presentation. It was okay. Then the real thing began. 6 resolutions (I think) were discussed that whole day. It was quite interesting. I managed to give an against speech, but it was really terrible. I did better during the committee meeting leh. So damn nervous. I can feel that my whole body is trembling. And the POIs. My gawd, that was really bad, and I think I gave really lame answers -.-.

I spent mostly sitting down in the Costa Rican delegates table, trying to write down POIs and against speech so that I can recite it, but to no avail. There's "too little time" and POIs are restricted to a certain amount. Oh well. All but one resolution are interesting and pretty cool. Except for the nuke program in Iran. I don't really understand what is the fuss about it. And I don't really know what is going on. Cheryl did gave a good against speech about it though. She said something about "nuclear toys"! Hahaha, so funny!

Anyway, the major highlights of the whole thing are the rights to statement. So many so dirty! Like...Cuban "cigars" in comparison to the Americans, different "Brazilian nuts" available. And someone even mentioned about eating chocolates can cause an "orgasm" or something. MY GOODNESS!!!!! Then there's another about LEGO's and Barbie dolls, saying the dolls are racist and sexist! Hahahhahha!!! Although she don't mean it, it was pretty funny too!

The day ended with a farewell dinner at RBRC. The food was great, but it wasn't very interesting. There were also talks about giving honourable and disrespectful titles to certain delegates though. Haha. The dinner wasn't very exciting though. Spent most of my time wandering around and trying to strike up conversations with the SAS people. The last couple minutes were sad though. I had to say goodbye to some of the really nice BGIC friends that I made. The sadness that I feel, its undescribable, it's like trying to carry a heavy heart. Is this how it feels when I leave SAS? =(

Thus, ends BGIC IV, a memorable and definitely good experience I have gone through.


Back to today, 7 March 2006. Sat for tests. Biology got 58.5. I could have gotten 61.5 if it wasn't for the statement-type question that I missed. So sayang =(...I even know the answers. That question was bloody easy! And Nathaniel got 71.5! Wahhh!My goodness. A Maths was terrible la. Cry also cannot. Marah also cannot. Hai~~~ I hope I don't FAILLL.

Now, I have to study Physics and Computer. I guess I need to place emphasis on Physics, everyone said that they could not finish on time. Oh well. Lots of luck to me. I probably post more after the tests. Bye!

02 March 2006

As you all know, I am one of the participants in this year's BGIC IV, which is held on 1-3 March. I had a lot of fun, and I feel that tomorrow, it will be an even more exciting day. I am a delegate representing Costa Rica in the environment committee.

Day 1
Lobbying was carried out in ISB yesterday. I showed some of the environment committee members my resolution on the burning of Kalimantan's rainforests. It was rather hard at first, I was really scared and nervous because I dont' know them and they don't know me. Everything's so...hard, at first. I have to thank Angelyn and Diana who helped to reassure me that everything's going to be fine =D. And I was pleasantly surprised that I received a lot of support from them =D. I made a couple of contacts as well. At the end of the day, I handed over my resolution to the vetting committee, and I passed! Yay me! After that, we had some dinner. I couldn't eat much, as I have to go for a farewell dinner for my brother =(.

Day 2

The day started with an opening ceremony at ICC. It was really nice, and I like the talk and presentation given by a marine biologist. It was about the importance of coral reefs and marine life. Some of the movie clips were funny (like the music and the effects), but one shocked me the most. They actually show someone slaughtering a turtle! Its so "er sing". The man was cutting the shell and "peeled" it off the turtle's back. Its so cruel and inhumane, I can actually see the bloody flesh of the turtle! Illl... And there was one part where they showed shark fins in cans, LOL! It also shows how the fins of the shark were chopped off from them! Humans kill shark for the fins, YET I learnt that shark fins has no nutritional value, is made up of the same materials as our hair and nails, and shark fin soup is actually chicken soup with shark fins put on it as texture! My goodness, I can't believe that man. All those years of drinking the soup, I was cheated =(.

After that, we went to our respective committee rooms. Everyone settled into their seats and the roll call begins. It is then followed by opening speeches of everyone. Damn, I was so nervous man, I was actually aware that my arms and my legs are shaking violently =S. Then came to the recital and discussion of resolutions, beginning with mine!

I was so freaked out, I think my face turned pale. Anyway, I cautiously walked to the podium, and greeted everyone, and started giving my speech to persuade people to support my resolution. When I have finished giving the speech, imagine the SHOCK of my life when a lot of people raised their placards, requesting for points of information. I was like ummming and ahhhhing around. =S. Fortunately, there was a limit due to "interest of time". Lol. I remember a guy who kept requesting for POIs and follow-ups. I was so annoyed with him, but I have no choice but to answer him "somehow". So I went back and sat down, breathing a huge sigh of relief.

After that, came the supportive and against speeches by other delegates, like Angelyn, Diana, delegate of Argentina and a few others that I can't recall. Unfortunately, majority voted against my resolution, and I was feeling kind of sad. But nevertheless, it is my first time and I am surprised that my resolution alone can be discussed for quite a long time ^.^. Yay! Maybe I can do better the next time =).

Following that, we had a break and returned back to discuss another resolution, from a guy that likes to POI. So, I decided to take revenge and started coming up with an against speech. Yes, I know I'm being mean and unfair, but I can't help it hehe. But his resolution passed anyway, congratulations =D! I believe that he and other co-submitters had done a really great job on writing his resolution and that they deserve it.

The debate took on a funnier side as time goes by. I can see that the situation is a bit relaxed after the third resolution. It was really funny when it came to the fourth resolution, the only one that was talking about typhoons, hurricanes and tropical storms. It was very funny as more and more people kept adding themselves to the co-sponsors list. It was obvious that the resolution has already passed, but for the sake of "debating", a for speaker came up and gave supportive points to the resolution. Anyway, it was pretty cool. I didn't pay much attention as there was nothing much to be POI-ed about anyway =P.

After that comes the fifth resolution, and thus ends our committee meeting. Results: 3/5 of the resolutions passed. Congratulations to everyone! Then there were also rights to statements in between discussions, where anyone can give any information related to their country. It was hilarious! Hahaha...I remembered someone had mentioned that we should use pens and not pencils or erasers as it is very wasteful of forest products. So stupid man hahaha!

And thus ends the second day of BGIC IV. The final day is tomorrow at ICC as well, and this time, every delegates will convene at the General Assembly. Where all resolutions come together and everyone can...ummm...POI?! Lol! Tomorrow promises to be enlightening, entertaining and full of promises!

Now will you excuse me, I have to study for piano theory exam O.O! >.<

P.S. Thanks Esther for helping to unblur me =D
