A little too busy these days. Too busy. Loads of stuffs to do, less scrapping and blogging. More on studying. However, I can't neglect my friend's Birthday, Yi Wei! Sweet 16th! Well, give him a "fountain" pen. Hope he would cherish it.

Another one is for my 'daughter', Ailsa. She has done loads of stuff for me and made me presents for my birthday as well as father's day.

I figured out that it would be impossible for me to work out a present for her right before my 'o' level's examinations. So, i planned real early to give her this present tommorow. A big thank you. I bought it to school today, hoping to give her after finish my long note to her. I didn't manage to finish due to my many tests today.

I even make a tag for her to use as a bookmark. Hope she'll like it. I even asked it she's okay with coffee/chocolate colour. Many people saw this today and was really envious (right word for it?) by the book a made for her. It seems that Ms Mak wants me to make a card for her CCA coach who's leaving, and she gonna pay me! Thanks for your aprecciation in my passion for crafting and scrapbooking/cardmaking! I'll answer the questions i normally face as 'why a guy like me scrap?' in my upcoming later posts!

Oeuvre III

Sigh... Not being able to go to this school concert. With luck, I handed Amelene Issabell Clarissa Choo (Opps, her full name) my camera, crossing my finger I was hoping the camera would return in one piece and in the same condition. Nevertheless, photos have been taken by her (just like this two) However, due to same personal circumstances, I am not able to put up the pictures, but you can try e-mailing her about it, for those familar with her of course.

Another week... with many tests going on and homework to do, i am still able to blog and make a special book for Ailsa (in the later post) while procastinating my work or burning the mid-night oil to complete. I have been having bad uclers later... Really bad. I can't chew like I like to... probably too much durians. I am tired, off to work. Two tests tommorrow. Posted by Picasa Pin It

Allonfocus & me published!

Great and late news! Firstly, My blog has been publicised! Thanks to Anam Stubbington who mentioned about my blog at first, and later, gave a short but entire post as a scrapping guy. Thank you for the people who commented on my blog. I would put links to my blog and view them just with a clcik from my blog. That easy and lazy, probably i am, and also allow other to view them as well! Would any scrapping folks wanna drop me a line at my comments or tagbox? I wouldn't mind making friends from half across the world and link hem in my blog too!

Second Late Late news: For those who were unware of, my pictures in art club had been put up on the BPsians' Handbook, whereby I am 2 of the 4 pictueres in the back cover of the book, thanks for put me on it!

Thanks everyone for your support in me and my blog. (sorry for the bad photos here.)

Thoughts: "Yi wei's birthday is tommorow! Happy sweet 16th! I thought of his present already. Not bought yet. Hope that Ben Gwee buys a cake!" Posted by Picasa Pin It

Self-Portrait Challenge

My 3rd Try on
self portrait challenge. Not putting on high hopes though I love this picture. I have never done it before, have a dark outline of myself. I was hoping for a better editing software, i am using picasa 2, not bad really, but i need a better software to remove blemishes... there's more to update. So many things to tell you people. Kinda worried if i post too much... Hoping to see my no-of-visitors increase with more people saying hi in my shoutbox(at the sidebar) or in my posts comments.

Bits of upcoming posts: More photos, includes a day at science centre, my amazing pictures of my cousins, me being publicized. (any guess, anyone?)

Great thanks to people who has found my programme list interesting, Miss Lim commented on the creative look! Sigh, so busy these days, today i've got five tests in school... almost killed myself. I need time for a nap.

I love the black tape! nice man.... although people say that this is small, but I love it!~ Three words I can describe, "7G rocks me!"

Anyway, Not a lot of people sign on it wad... so why need such a big guest book....make it cute and classy more impt.

Here's the Programme list hand out i posted for dudes who helped. Haha, bet their glad that i design it well, thanks to scrapping folks for creating examples to generate the idea for me!!! I Love the stamps.... I used all my brand of stamps! Great!

The council room... Before >>> Then >>> Now.

The renovations and intensive clear up, the room was like this. Very bad, out of state condition. Many cleaner complained about the strench to the teachers. Most of them don't care. i suspected the room is smelled of a decomposed food, in the cupboard, the cleaning up was horrible and the strench made people want to vormit. Huge Red Ants were found in the built in cupboard in a cardboard box. Really smelly. Thanks to those Secondary 2 and 3s who suffered as much as I did. A huge major crack was on the wall.

We made it very clear to people for the clean up of the room. It was them, people who cared for the board did it. Some of the people without anknowledgements went putting up the wall putty, despite Estelle and theresa is supposed to do it.
The painting, were Daren was in charge of, came out good. (He was a pure leader.) The painting has been done. He's the 3rd one to clean intensively after the painting job. Well Done! The room no longer reeks of a pee smell. However, the cracks of the walls became a 3D landscrape. Badly Done.
Sharmaine and Sopheary went IKEA to buy the curtains, good one. Tommy went to find drills and put on the curtains. The room was clean enough to say, "home, sweet home."
I shan't say much, see for yourselves, just after a few days... This was in the proccess of getting back to square. You juniors do not aprecciate the room well, after what all the senios have put hard work. Sigh.... how to handle the keys to you?

Dudes who HELP.

Yup, this post is decdicated to the guys who help this afternoon, Gerald, Zul, Darren and Markus (left to right) and not forgetting sharmaine (not shown in picture) who left, but helped in a big way too...

We ought to thank these people for contributing so many time to the board in packing those Programme list. It takes 6 people, 300 paper, 400 printed pages, 200 times of stamping, 2 glues, A few hundred yards of golden string to complete in a whole afternoon (that's more than 5 hours)

Not to mention, they did a wonderful job even though they were as tired as me.

I took this picture to mark their recognition into spending their time in helping, while some wanted to go in groups to shopping for clothes, going to homes for fun.

I represent the Council to thank you for the hard work.

Power Struggle

Sorry, about the photo, just this photo for the sake of posting...

Here's an e-mail I recieved regarding sylvia.

From: "Yiwei Lim"
Subject: Its U
Date: Sat, 08 Jul 2006 17:05:34

If u think that Sylvia is ever going to apologise just because u. want her to, forget it. I bet if she asked u to apologise u wouldn't. do that as well. So WAKE UP. I'm toking to u as a friend here, a friend who wishes to help u, in life no ones succeeds by forcing other people to do things your way. I've read your blog, im totally disappointed, the fact is, what I said was, "U are not a board." R u a board?! Or else y put words into my mouth? Is that being respectful?? If that is so u want me to give u respect because of that? What the hell r u?? A king? In life, it’s not every time that person will apologise to u abt what he/she said, u've got to understand that. Sylvia is one such person. Imagine I’m ur boss, I jus scolded u for not handing a layout on time, my company is the only one willing to hire u as a scrapbooker. Will u quit if I didn't sae sry???? If so then fine...

Note this: He points out incorrectly that i am totally wrong in the situation, and i have no right to ask for an aploygy even when the other party is wrong... Here's my reply letter.

Dear Friend,

In the first place, was I wrong? I was calling for a price for our room paint while writing notices for the board. I don't need her or anyone to apologise. I just need to feel fair. She was contributing most to the already noisy room, and did you put a stop to her nonsense? NO. I calling someone to get a price for paint while writing something on the board, shouldn't I have some right to quiet her down? But what in the hell of the response she is giving me? A FUCK sign was that rude and insulting/ Would it be front to do it to your seniors? Why don't experiment and show it to your mum while she asks you not to play maple? (she right) and I am not wrong, to this very point. And still, did you put a stop to me and her conversation? NO. You didn't. In fact, you acted as you were translucent. As a friend, would you allow something like this to happen? would you?

Are you saying that is my fault that I have caused a conflict between me and her? Why, should I be the one to apologise? Let me tell you this: I am AWAKE, and still very AWAKE.

Also, did I ask someone to do it my way? I just ask for a simple respect, self-discipline and co-operation. But, NO. I didn't. You said I wasn't a board member, that's a fact but I won't deny it. I didn't put words in your mouth, I quote them. And that was already a very respect part. Don't forget, you said it in a very rude manner. And didn't you think that I was very hurt? For your info, I did help the council board and I did contribute. I put my heart and my soul to get things done right, and it wasn't MY way, I accept various opinions and suggestions from everyone, I need is co-operation not be my slave. But wait, what do I get in return? I get rude, insulting comments and reactions, less to say, a little pat in the back or recognition.

And yes, I do want your respect and everyone else, but in the first place, you didn't. Just a reminder, I do all this with my best ability and I did work very hard. I don't have post recognition; respect is a part of teamwork, co-operation and friendship. Not a respect like a king, just respect, but I seem to have none from you or her. In the right mind, You think I deserve all this?

It is my fault that she shouted rudely? And you think she should apologise? Doesn't mean you're one such person who does apologise, it means you're right. That plain stubborn. You in fact thinks that I’m in the wrong. if I can tell you, I stand of my side.

Student Council's work has been pouring over me lately. working on deadlines and pushing people to work for me is really hard. what temporarily power you say? (quoted from my blog) I don't have people work hard. no initiative, no respect, no co-operation. All works been on me... would I care of what she thinks when she's wrong? Is it nice to shout? I didn't even shout when she was on the phone, I wait for her to finish her conversation on the phone before I confronted her, and mind you, I have respect for other, I myself deserve some respect.

You're the boss, you're scolding me in the right way, because I didn't finish my layout, you have the right to scold me. Just like the right I scolded? Did she recognize it was her mistake, or did you too? Let me tell you this, since I don't have the respect, initiative and co-operation, why should I work? Anyway, I won't benefit from anyone or anything. Why should I work when its soooo difficult? You are right, my friend, you are right. You're most fit for the job. You should do it.

Your friend (if you still consider as),

I almost broke my key board when i was typing this, reducing to tears eventually. I am darn sad... here's another reply to my letter. (i just recieve this.)

Dear Terence,

I'm glad you read my comments. Thanks for that. Well lets see, you said that she shouted at you. Hmm have u ever wondered? If i was to talk like u in the room, sylvia wouldnt dare scold me. why? is it because im the president? If i was that useless i bet she'd kill me. But she wont, u wanna noe y? Try being friends with the others, show them that you are eager. Life's not all about work. If thats life to u, neither would i mind as long u r happy. But before i continue, let me share smth with u. This was what eoin had said to me unconciously while he left the library: " Lead With Your Heart". And this had made a huge impression on me. Even he doesn't noe it. Well u r the first to noe. To different people, different forms of leading are present. I dunno why, but recently i've become more of a laserflair leader than the previous democratic leader i used to be. Seriously... But to think about it, erm... the part about me saying ur are not part of the board, i'll say it one last time... Here's what i said. if ur ears had heard wrongly or if u think i maliagned u in any way here's my apology: i'm Sorry. but heres what i said.. "u r not a board" (thats all...) yea...

"I don't have people work hard. no initiative, no respect, no co-operation. All works been on me..." heres what i quote from ur email... Erm... is it fair for u to make such a judgement? In my perception i don't realli think its fair. if u do, go ahead. To be honest, its these comments that people like sylvia have problems against u.. I dont have them, maybe because im less sensitive. In any case, just prepare whatever that comes out. I'm trying to do that too, cos im think i have the opening-the-mouth-without-thinking syndrome. Tell me whenever that happens. (=

U r a friend to me. Ur last sentence states im rite... I doubt it, im mostly wrong... even in the face of teachers, but i make it sound as if im right. (one of eoin's tricks) haha.. no hard feelings.. well if u r still unhappy abt me in any way just blurt it out in a less disgracing way ( dun use the word useless... use others lyk _________ i dunno la... jus try) thx.. you are not the one doing all the work.. others do to. i just got informed that im the emcee for ourve III. i would be gald if i could trade places with u.. (=

how bout it? lol

if u are willing tell me, i get abraham to arrange. thx. besides the crap, thx for telling me im still ur friend. u still are! so lets dun get to flustered about the sc thing. 4 years of slogging.. mae be just 3 years... k thx i g2g alrdy cya tmr in skool

your friend always,
Yiwei.. (=

notes this: I am defintely not a people person or a person that is good tempered, I would never ever put personal matters into my 'work' life. Life's like that, friends still get along with each other, but sometimes its hard to let go of certain things, you know what i mean?

Okay, latter post gotta be kinda happy, i will note that.

Negative Thoughts.

Haha... really tired and angry today... maybe today isn't my day.
well, i won't feed you with the boring details but, here's the summary.

Morning: Meeting didn't goes as planned.. came late to school despite the rush. (juniors talked in groups too)
Before Dismissal: Lost my wallet. Found by a nice sec2 malay boy.
Directly After Dismissal: Borrowed a white board marker from Miss Teo, forget to return her.
Shortly After Dismissal: Loads of shouting in council room... very noisy...while i am having a call. Quarrelled with Sylvia. (she's very rude and disrespectful) I left the room with a louder noise, a big loud bang with the councillor room door.
Outside school: Let my poor friends wait. Scolded Joon Kit. (he's very insulting!)
Out: Went out to eat with friends and intended to follow them for a relaxing swim. I even prepared my swimming stuffs, but I backed out at the last decision. (because of english tuition)
At home: Couldn't get sleep... had to rush my homework for english tution but didn't hand up (cos she didn't ask, and no one did.)
Now at home: Super hungry, although i ate a filling early dinner in the car. (Yoshinoya Take-away!)

I am going to stop all my councillor works until something is done that i feel is fair for me. Don't apreciate me? Do it yourself. I am not a push-over, i don't tie your loose strings while you try not to do anything. I am serious.

On a happier Note: More scrapping, I want to give people presents for my birthday...
