I know I haven't been updating my blog for a very, very, very long time. Blame the busy schedule. I've been going to bed at two to three in the morning and waking up at six. Six in the morning, mind you. Repeatedly like this for five whole days. Would have been dead by now, if not for my healthy body. *grins* Amazingly, I haven't fallen ill.


Oh, you haven't known? I'm in Singapore!!! Ha, ha. And the five days of 'torture' was actually pretty fun. Freshmen Orientation Camp. The best camp I have ever attended in my entire life. Seriously. So, yes. It's been nine days since I've arrived here and I guess I'm getting used to living alone already. Helps a lot to have lotsa friends here. Of course, living alone, there's the laundry, housekeeping, etc. As most of you should know, I have never been a housekeeping kind of person. My room's currently in a mess. I'm gonna clean it soon.


I wonder when that will be?

It's great they have a laundry room here, with five washing machines to pick from. I throw literally everything in. Jeans, shirts, even my socks and my underwear. Bras included. Lol. Lazy to hand wash mah...

Laptop just crashed. Bought an external hard disk for just SGD (No more RM!!) 109.00. It's been more than 12 hours since I started repairing my lappie and it still isn't done yet. *sigh*

Notice my (somewhat) different blogging style? Don't ask me why. I just placed my hands on the keyboard and Voila! This came out. Maybe the Singaporean culture is getting at me? I don't know...

Btw, I have noticed that I might be beginning to learn to talk the Singaporean way. There is a distinctive difference between Singlish and Manglish. Hope you guys won't mind my slang that much when I return.

New life, new friends, new loves.

I love Singapore. So far, there hasn't been anything going drastically wrong yet. If you don't include the countless walking and constant aches (my arm's hurting from Sunday's badminton game, plus aches at my back, ass, and legs. Currently having mush difficulty sitting down, standing up, and walking up stairs. Had muscle cramps on my left leg this morning, which still hasn't gone away.), uni life is actually pretty fun. you know, new found freedom and all that. Excitement's still getting at me. know it might be a whole different story when the term actually begins, but I'm not too bothered about that yet.

Still enjoying my new found life.

Here are the photos of my Orientation Camp. Click here (day 1), here (day 2), here (day 3), here (day 4), and here (day 5).

Yup, lots of photos. Ignore them if you're lazy, but view them if you want to see me being kissed by a guy with heavy lipstick on. *big grin*

Shall update you guys again soon. Hopefully, I shall be able (if I'm not too lazy) to put up photos of my room.

Brace yourself.

Remember some time ago I joined the Eat A Chip Like Kenny Sia contest?

I didn't win.



Don't believe me?


Am so happy!

Tagged again. My habits.

1.Each player of this game starts off with 15 weird things/habits/little known facts about yourself.
2. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 15 weird things/habits/little known facts as well as state this rule clearly.
3. At the end, you need to choose 10 people to be tagged and list their names.
4. No tag backs!

1. I am smart. Not referring to being academically smart, but being smart emotionally, socially, and psychologically. I am good at psycho games. Do not underestimate me.

2. I can defend myself from being mind read by others.

3. I can read other's minds.

4. I can pretend that i am pretty much dumb, so as to allow my frienemies* to think that I am very easily manipulated.

5. My frienemies usually think they have read my mind, but in actual fact, I have read their mind that they think they've successfully read mine.

6. My frienemies usually use reversed psychology on me. I use reversed reversed psychology on them.

7. I am so certain of my ability that I've no qualms on posting them here. Such is my self-confidence.

8. My favorite anime is Death Note, because its all about psychological battle. 

9. I have no idea what else to write.

10. Facts 1 to 8 have been all about my psychological brilliance, because I am now currently pissed at somebody who underestimated me during our psychological warfare. 

11. But she finally found out I wasn't dumb after all. She made a mistake in judging me. Although the battle was a tie, but I still consider myself the winner because in the end, she realised my true abilities and concluded that I was smart. 

12. Having an opponent recognize and acknowledge your powers is like gaining their respect. Now, that's a real winner.

13. I'm changing the topic now.

14. I love Vampire Knight's art. It's an anime. Go watch. 

15. I'm gonna break rule 4 of this tag because I can't find that many new people to tag.

I tag: 
Ee Ping
Pin Yin
Yeat Hon
Tai Howe
Andrew Kon

*A frienemy is somebody who is your friend on the outside, but is actually your worst enemy. Friennemies are generally more deadly than your usual enemies, but they're also more fun and interesting to talk to. I love psychological battles.

My personals?? Gosh, what a title.

It has been awhile since my last post. Blame my laziness. Haha.

Not that my life has been mundane and that I've nothing to blog about. On the contrary. I've been pretty busy these few days. 

My church held a Spiritual Meeting. Was really beneficial. Despite the awfully, awfully cold air conditioning that almost froze me to death, I was happy I attended it. Helped me draw closer to God and taught me what really matters in life. 

I also learnt that:

Nescafe + Milo + Nestum + very little water = thick, delicious, strong and sweet smelling cup of "OOMPH"!

After listening to 50-minute long sermons, I have learnt to appreciate the 10 minute intervals. A quick visit to the bathroom, and then some "oopmh" (with extra-strong coffee) to get myself awake again. 


Now Rachel, the newbie cook, shall teach you how to brew a cup of her homemade secret special drink.

Rachel's Personal Home-Brewed Drink.

Ingredients: Chocolate powder (in this case, I use Milo powder), coffee powder (I would suggest using Nescafe, my personal favourite), oats (use Nestum!), some breakfast cereal (optional) and of course, some hot water.

1. Take a cup or mug and scoop THREE HUGE TABLESPOONS (add four or five if you want) of chocolate powder into it.
2. Add two tablespoons (or more, if you really love oats) into the mug.
3. Add a little bit of coffee powder. Some people would opt not to add coffee though; it's really up to your preference. As for me, I'd prefer to put in just a teeny, weeny bit 'cause I don't want the coffee flavor to overpower the chocolaty taste. Yes, I'm a chocolate person.
4. Add very little water (about half or less of the amount of contents in your mug); you'd want your drink to be really thick and rich!!

Voila! You're done!

Optional step: It's also a good idea to add some breakfast cereal; personally, I prefer having my drink with cereals 'cause it tastes better. Any kind will do. Traditional cornflakes is a good choice. My personal favorite is KokoCrunch because it has a "great chocolaty taste!". You can never get enough of chocolate flavour in any drink, candy, or ice-cream. When it comes to chocolate, more is always better. I don't recommend Honey Stars. They're too sweet. Plain sweet, with no chocolate or any other flavor whatsoever. Eww.

Disclaimer: This recipe is genuinely, originally, and truly my idea, and mine alone. I DID NOT copy, revise, or edit it from anyone or anywhere. Any familiarity or similarity of any sort you find in this recipe is purely coincidental.


I visited Nanyang University yesterday. The place was huge!! Posh buildings, great accommodations, and lots of facilities. In short, I LOVE THE PLACE!!!

I can't wait to get in there.

I got a new Singapore phone number, too!! The number's a real beauty. 


Cool right?? Your number got so many zero's or not?? Four zero's leh!! Very easy to remember!! Lol.

As for the xxx's, send me a personal message if you want to know. *smiles*

Just got back from SIngapore last night.


I cut my hair today. I love my new hairstyle!!! Too lazy to upload my picture here...

Bought a pair of polaroid sunglasses. It cost me RM 190. (That's my shopaholic side springing up again, after being idle for some time)

I know it's a lot of money lah, but can block UV light mah. Good for eyes. Hehe.


Leaving for Singapore in 5 more days.

I am soooo not ready to leave home.

I bought 4 new PSP games today: Mario SNES emulator (since it's an emulator, it's a lil technical; more like MS-DOS or Linux, where it isn't really user friendly and you have to go through all those grown-uppish procedures before you can actually start the game), Crash Tag Team Racing, Crash of the Titans (yes, I'm a HUGE fan of Crash Bandicoot), and Breath of Fire. 

Mario brings back fond memories. 

I miss the times when Play Station was oh-so-foreign, video games came in cassettes instead of CD's, the graphics were shitty as hell, and when my brother and I were still playing with the old Nintendo console, which looks something like my grandmother's videotape player:

Ahh. The good old times...

Breath of Fire is supposedly a pretty good game, but I shall not comment on it yet. I've just begun playing. The beginning seems a little boring, though. I hope it gets better.

I also bought a new PSP casing:

Ain't it pretty!!

Tonight shall be dedicated to PSP-ing.

I found this cute lil "smiley" on somebody's MSN display name: 


And so, here is my latest MSN display name: 

Rae~ ٩(●̮̮̃•̃)۶

Don't think I'll be changing it for awhile.

I've noticed that Chriz's MSN display name has been remaining the same for a very, very long time:

Chrizzy: (̅_̅_̅_̅(̲̲̲̲̲̅̅̅̅̅̅(̅_̅_̲̅м̲̅a̲̅я̲̅l̲̅b̲̅o̲̅r̲̅o̲̅̅_̅_̅_̅()ڪ

It's been like that for more than a year already, I think. He copied it from my old, long gone, long forgotten, long lost MSN display name.

Outdated copycat. 


No offense, Chriz. Here's a smiley to make your day.  ٩(●̮̮̃•̃)۶

my very own ATM card

Dad brought me to OCBC Bank today to apply for the tuition fee loan.

Then, we created a joint account.

My very own bank account, with my very first ATM card!!!

I'm a proud owner of my very own ATM card!!!! YAY!!!

What... People first time own an ATM card mah... Of course more excited right?

Farewell party

Although not many people responded to my invitation, quite a number actually turned up for last night's event.

I must say, I had lots of fun.

Cindy and Yeat Hon were my first guests. They turned up at around 2.30 p.m.. We chatted a little. Then, at 3, Henry arrived. With a bouquet of beautiful roses.

Six pink pretty roses.

THANKS, HENRY! You made my day!

Can't blame me. This is the first time I've ever received flowers from a guy. Touched!

Watched House Of Wax. Disgusting show.

Later, Jia, Suzanna, Phaik Yean, and Mei Hwa came. So did the other guys, XYZ, Yong Hong, and Juon. The guys entertained themselves with the Play Station 2 while the girls lazed around in my oh-so-comfortable room.


I split myself into two and entertained both groups.


Later in the evening, everyone else began showing up and everyone got hyped up. Ate. Laughed. Gossiped. Yelled. Screamed.

20 girls. Food. Laughter. Fun.

You get the idea.

After the meal, all of us (yes all 20 of us) crammed ourselves in my dimly lit (they didn't want to turn on the lights; don't ask me why) room. The guys remained outside, still playing video games.

We relived the old times. Did crazy stuff you'll never see in public. Talked dirty (ha, ha). For a moment, it seemed like I was back in school, when all of us were still childish and innocent.

My only regret is that I totally forgot to snap any pictures with the guys...

Pauline with her food and TV.

Jia yawning? Lol.

Them. Food. Sorry about the blur.

Left to right: Mei Hwa, Phaik Yean, Jia.

Left to right: Suzanna, Yi Hui, Pin Yin.

Me, with the flowers. Happy!!

Yeat Hon got bored and resorted to arranging my stuffed animals. The white, smiling "ball of something" is a present from Henry and Yong Hong. Thanks, guys! Yeat Hon fell in love with the white chicken and was sodomizing it during the entire party. Eww.

Asleep in my comfy bed.

Group photo. Everyone crammed in my room.

Printed on Sing Rou's shirt.

Get off my bed already!


Cindy and Suzanna.

Suzanna and I.

Nope, I'm not in the pic.

Pauline, still eating. Lol.

In the end, we had too much food and there were lots of leftovers.

I love the mornings after a party. 

There's always lots for breakfast.

The Fall

Yesterday, my cousin went for her school's Cross Country Race.

Someone form the back shoved. Everyone fell.

Sort of like how you play dominoes. When one falls, the others follow suit.


It's a wonder how the fall of one can bring upon the fall of many others.

I blame me


Am happy for you. 



So far, not many people has responded to my farewell party invitation. 

Sad case.


I trusted the wrong person. I made wrong judgements. I was stupid and naive.

I thought I was smart. I planned my moves. I thought I could manipulate people. I thought I was in control. But somehow, I made a mistake and now there's no turning back.

I slipped.

I have to bear the consequences.

People hate me. I've lost my dignity. I've lost a best friend. 

I cried. 

Yes, I cried. Over the best friend that I loved so much, I cried. I really hoped we could be friends forever. It's painful to lose someone you love. Hearing those hurtful words with my own ears, my heart broke in two. 

"I'm sorry, but I don't think I can be your friend anymore."

After all the happy times we had together, this is how it has to end.

It hurt. A lot.

The person whom I trusted broke his promise, betrayed me, aroused tension within my family, ruined my dignity, and made my best friend hate me. 

I blame my own carelessness. 

However, this isn't the end. In fact, it has just begun to get interesting. I'm gonna make him pay. For my sufferings that he has caused and for making me lose my best friend, he will pay. 

The future sure is interesting.

In psychological and interpersonal relationship wars, I win.

I always win.
