Christmas eve

2nd day of Christmas carol in Brother Ho Kong Phin's house. We have a wonderful meal and a great night, thank you Lord. Hehe... hope those non-believers are willing to open their hearts and receive the salvation that God has prepared for us, after hearing the message my bro shared during the carol.

Hmm still, I find inserting pictures into blogs are a hard thing to do... haha... even using the new Blogger, still hard... sometime it even hangs... haha... so best thing I think is to use photobucket... upload the photo then copy the link and link to there... haha...

Well, I try... haha.... here is a photo of we 3 brothers at home, preparing to go church for some practice before going for real. Hehe...
Preparing huh? Ya, right...
At church...
Is everyone ready for practice?me waiting for everyone to gather up, hehe...

This is the christmas carol group! Hehe...

End of first day Christmas carol

明天还有两家。今天我们诗班团5点集合在圣所,练习我们那些要在罗家(诗韵家)唱的。我们练到7点半了,才开始出发。哈哈,到了那里就一切交托在主的手中,为主的福音而唱。我也在其中分享了主的福音,非常的紧张,第一次在大众分享主的福音,心里又怕未信主的朋友听不明白。结果我说得结结巴巴,感谢主赐给我他的话,非常喜乐。呵呵。我好像啰嗦了点。哈哈。

好,现在就看我弟弟预备明天的吧!哈哈,哦,我好像还有一次,哈哈,明天。所以我得rearrange我的程序。哈哈。相信主有办法把我口吃的病治好。哈哈。

Three days before release of result

哇,时间过得好快,转眼间就快要圣诞节了,26日就是知晓成绩,27至28日就开始选科目了,实在是好快。今天和明天,我们教会诗班团将会去三或四家唱诗班,我弟弟和我将会做个短短的分享,希望藉着这些能够使未信主的朋友们能认识自己的罪,我们的主耶稣基督以及神为我们预备的救恩。唯有相信主耶稣是神儿子,被神差遣来到世上,为我们的罪被钉在十字架上,死后第三天复活,喻表胜过阴间的掌权者,到神那里去。

耶稣说他到天堂为我们预备房间,也会回来接一切相信他的到天家那里去。

人人都以为圣诞节是基督徒的圣日,但是圣诞节也只不过是个公共假期。圣经里没有记载这圣诞节。一个基督徒不应该只在这天纪念主耶稣的降生,而应该每时每刻都要记得,不要做个一曝十寒或不冷不热的基督徒!那世人如何定这圣诞节的日期呢?某一位弟兄告诉我拿25/12是人纪念god of sun的日子。

这道理跟受难节,复活节都一样,那些日子其实是人类拜祭god of fertility,偶像!一个人以白兔的模样可成的。在那天,我们看到有easter bunny,有easter egg,这些都没有记载在圣经了,都是人编出来,还brainwash世人,降低神的标准!真是岂有此理!人有了罪,就不断地敌对神。神把这地球给人管理,人却把这地球管得像垃圾堆!不是吗?你看看环境,pollution,greenhouse effect,break of ozone layer。简直像个垃圾堆了。

罪,你可能说“我没杀人放火,我没犯罪啊。”人都以为只要不做律法所不允许的,那才是罪。对,那些是罪,但是不止。罪就是违背神的话,没达到神给人的尊严,目标。不相信神所赐下的救恩就已经是犯罪了。

我下次再继续share吧。

Correcting my previous post

终于表演完了,我也轻松多了,想着后天就可回家就是太棒了。哇,赶紧看看我的那本有关于java gui swing的书,好像没时间做里面的练习了。哈哈。我还有个分享要想,需要在23rd那天说出来。我相信主必带领我,只要我信靠他。

我又从新读过我刚才所写的post,觉得因为我对那演出有点紧张,也有点不耐烦,因为我本来打算下午到敦廉那里打电动,哈哈,但是因为这演出需要在下午练习,害我没得去玩。哈哈。现在是很轻松。哈哈,我要提醒我自己不要埋怨,要凡事谢恩。哈哈,愿各位弟兄姐妹别像我,哈哈,大家都要努力奔跑那主为我们预备的道路!YEAH!

NUSHO Music camp 2006

今天我好傻,虽然不愿意却答应了,为何我不敢说“不”?看来若我可以拿出我的胆量,一定是超小的。唉,只能怪我自己苯。我很想摆脱一切有关到NUS CFA的。虽然我知道我是NUSHO的member,NUSHO是CFA的,但是我是想越少关系越好。

终于口琴营会告一段落了。大家在五天的辛苦里想必已经累了,我才来两天就觉得一些累意了(可能是昨天给雨淋到我这“容易生病的男人”哈哈!),何况是那些都有出席的会友们,哈哈。好开心看到刚加入的学生都能学concert pieces挺快的,看来后浪推前浪了。哈哈。不知不觉就过了两天,昨天晚上还在AR过夜。我到了那里,只玩玩下钢琴(我其实很喜欢钢琴,也想学,所以只有每次到钢琴前,不是看人家玩,就是自己试著玩。还是不能用双手弹琴,头脑转不来,看来得要从小学习,或者靠主的恩赐。)然后就bok的一声倒在地下,准备睡觉了。哈哈。

好吧,我要去冲凉换衣了,不然就会被人催了。我也不知为何我如此想念回家的感觉。

Last day of church camp

真可惜我不能看到我的silver组的表演,哈哈。11th-13th的营会,我觉得挺好玩的,而且我也面对了一个考验,那就是教导我的hope组。我那hope组有信主的和不信主的,所以我必须要平衡我所说的,这样两方面都能得益处。这也让我学习如何传福音,盼望那些未信主的都能够看到自己的罪,心肯悔改,愿意接受主耶稣为他们个人救主。唯有如此,才能够上天堂。

他们exposed到很多世界上的事情,比如da vinci code,roman catholic等等。在这营会我也认识到未信主对基督教的疑点以及为何迟迟不愿意接受主耶稣。但是我很高兴的是他们(我的hope组)都肯承认自己是个罪人。可是重要的是他们是否愿意悔改,若只是敷衍了事,那就不是诚心诚意地悔改了,这样的悔改主是不会接受的。我也很高兴他们愿意提出他们对基督教的疑问,我也希望我能一一解答,但是我也是怕我的一些大案乃是我的猜测罢了,怕不符合圣经的教导,所以我只能说我不知道。哇,这营会的游戏,我最喜欢的是那传水吹乒乓球,哈哈,只可惜我到后来才抓到技巧,只要少量的水就把那乒乓球吹出来了。哈哈。花了我不少气啊。哈哈。最痛苦的游戏就是那用手melt一个大冰块!天啊,谁竟然想出如此游戏?哈哈,真是疼死我的手了。看来我们营会的游戏有臭的,有靠幸运的,有靠技巧的,有痛的,也有湿的!哈哈。幸亏我的那silver组还可拿到亚军。哈哈,不错了。哈哈。

营会应该结束在三点多,那时大家都要分工合作打扫圣所。可是我和我弟弟得在吃完午餐就收拾走人了,要和我家长一起去bandar。我和我弟弟需要搭晚上八点的飞机出来新加坡,因为还有个营会在这里,然后准备在17th与我两个弟弟回汶莱。哇,有个人高兴极了。哈哈。

感谢赞美我主我的神,保守我们的心灵,带领一切,使我们终于度过这营会!希望这营会做了撒种子的工作,一切就靠圣灵在他们身上做工,使他们看到唯有承认自己的罪,悔改,信靠耶稣才能够使灵魂得救。

Finish MAXE for this sem!

终于等到了!可以光明正大的玩了,看漫画了!哈哈。但是到了假期,我就想到一些我需要作的事情了。第一,我有一个营会在汶莱KB小镇。第二,我希望能够在这假期学一点GUI(用那Java String)及J3EE。第三,为我下个sem预备好要拿什么module。哈哈,看看我在假期会否做到我要做的。哈哈,第一和第三是必定的,无可逃避。哈哈。

今天早上得CS3212,果然不出所料的难!大部分的是硬着头皮写下去的,盼望老师会给一些可怜分。可是考试出来是挺高兴的只因为考完了!哈哈。今天晚餐是丰富的火锅,steamboat,然后就去附近的shopping,看看有什么可以买回家的。哈哈。

哇,现在只有等待,看漫画或者玩游戏在线?或者可以去找J3EE的资料?呵呵,好多东西可以做了,但是不知从何下手,哈哈。现在去厕所签合约了,拜拜!

A boring day...

好闷的一天啊!知道明天是最后一张,非常兴奋,但是却兴奋不起来因为明天的卷纸可不是小儿科。我看了历年考题,T_T,简直是shiok!了一跳,第一题都没办法呕东西了。幸亏有几题是应付的来。我看了一个早上的历年考卷,还try了一些题目,练习那些较容易拿分的题目,是志在必得的分数!看久了就生起了厌倦之心,去我弟弟说说话,幸亏这次他没赶我走。哈哈。我自己也怕捣乱了他,哈哈。

我拿衣服去洗衣机,后来换去dryer,然后拿上来放进衣橱了。我还去visit别人的blog,读读他们写了些什么东东。有时不想做时,就去玩游戏在线(http://www.mofunzone.com)。看完后继续做历年考题,看了看,一些真的是没有头绪。哈哈。看来我没有尽力去想吧,可能是因为许多人都考完了,没有考试的心情了。但是心里还是知道还没考完,所以近来心情不是很好,非常的烦躁,非常的不耐烦,实在是快要把我炸死了。闲,哈哈。考试考试,真讨厌。哈哈,还好是open book,不如就像星期一的一样惨。哈哈,但是星期六的事open book却比星期一的死得更惨,惨不忍睹!哈哈,头发拔光了也没用。哈哈!

好吧,时间到了,在继续拼吧。该害怕的其实是我自己的懒惰,该对付的是我那气馁的心,所以我要激励我自己,克服我那懒惰的心,但是谈何容易?哈哈,唯有靠我主我们的神。哈哈,依然开心。

Don't looks like an easy paper...

虽然我昨天下定决心今天不可看漫画的,但是很失望的,我忍不住去开了网页,告诉自己只能看五期。今天早上我却不止看五期,看到感动部分(邀月宫主终于说出秘密,小鱼儿诈死,与无缺相认弟兄,两人是孪生兄弟,跟我和我弟弟一样,哈哈。)就放不下手了,一直看到午餐。午餐过后又再看。终于把那整套漫画看完了!爽,漫画比电视或小说精彩多了,哈哈!可以专心读书了。哈哈。

说说今天的午餐,虽然简简单单几道菜,但是已经可以让我肚子赞不绝口了。我知道预备这餐的不简单,但是却是好吃极了。哈哈,菜还可再进步下会更加棒。(那师傅若读了这句,会不会骂我:“有东西吃就得了,还呱呱叫什么?!”哈哈!

刚刚读完全部lecture notes,也看了几下past year papers,一些问题是可以回答的,但大多数的需要练习,看来明天就得好好努力努力了,哈哈,为最后一张奋斗吧,不断结论是什么,我只知道我要回家了,回汶莱!(狂笑着)哈哈!快要一年没回了。好了,我要去休息休息,补充体力(今天打篮球,射得比昨天要好了,开始适应了,但是手脚都非常的酸)。哈哈!一切交托我们在天上的主。相信主必带领一切信他(找不到那神之旁的他)的。

Last paper on Thursday!

又过了一张纸,感觉真是太好了。星期一考的CS3103,蛮难的。但是因为是close book式,所以不会就不会了,想不到就想不到了,除非拼命的呕一些出来,自己觉得满意就行了。哈哈。就这样我做完后,会写得都写了,能呕的我也呕出来了,仿佛在我头脑里的路线绕了几圈,还剩15到16分钟,就睡觉到老师说put down your pen。哈哈。

一回到家,吃完午餐后,就赶快看漫画在线,看来我已病入膏肓了,哈哈。看着看着,我电脑不知为何慢下了,load那个page的也超慢,spoilt我的兴趣了。只好作罢,在我电脑启发scan disk以及defragmentation。在那电脑检查的时候,我只好乖乖地拿lecture notes出来读,为我那星期四的考试作初步的温习。

等了将近两个小时半,终于一切检查完成了,就可以再次地看漫画,但是不久敦廉就到了pgp,与我和我弟弟打球。真的是好久没打了,终于可以在射球了,哈哈,只好慢慢地适应那粒新球了。

昨天因为有人终于考完了,所以我们来个简单的庆祝法---那就是玩bridge!哈哈,但是看来那位小姐每次跟我partner输得离谱。哈哈,真倒霉。哈哈!后来玩锄大地,那个不用说啦,我根本不在行,只有其他人胜罢了,看来倒霉的人是我,哈哈,样样都输,只是bridge还可以赢几场。哈哈,玩到半晚就各自回房睡觉去了。明天要用功读书,不要看漫画。哈哈。一切都感谢我的主的带领。

Closed book exam

哇!好久没考过这种考试了。我们SOC大部分是OPEN-BOOK的,这次真的是特别的。再MID-TERM考试,老师也说是CLOSE-BOOK,但是那时还不知道那“杀伤力”多厉害,还不知道原来我越来越不适应背书如我靠O水准和A水准了。我考到21/50,显然是不及格。但是那天靠完后,我总是以为可以起码拿个25。哈哈,竟然是fail了。哈哈。终于大考来了,再次地面对这“谁背书背得比较熟就赢”了的考试,看来我危机丛丛了。

在考完星期六那天的考试,本应该开始练习,我却给漫画在线像吸铁石一样缠着,不断地看,至到晚上去吃晚餐才肯罢休。看来这漫画在线害人不浅,不可小看它的吸引力和魅力哦!后悔后悔,但是后悔莫及,在那时候,但我拿起lecture notes时,发现时间太短。那就快点拼了。在读书当中,我去瞧了past year paper一眼,哇,它的那些问题对我那还没看完lecture note的小子简直好恐怖(但是比那天星期六考的比起,也没什么了)!

星期日从教会回到家,就开始勤奋地读。终于读完了,做起那past year paper比较好多了,没那么恐怖了,会做一些题目。但是还是有很多问题不会回答,只好明天与我弟弟一起策划策划,看看这场战是否凶多吉少。哈哈。好,大家,我再自己多看看场地,然后就回营安睡去了。弟兄姐妹,把这一切完全交托在我们主的手中,愿主带领我使我们对考试不恐惧,愿主把敌人交在我们手中,学习依靠我们的主我们的神吧!

2 more papers to go!

YES!!! 太棒了,剩下两张纸,在星期一及星期四将把它们解决了,实在太高兴了。然后星期五就bye-bye,回汶莱去了!

今天的考试就简直太难了,跟我考CS2106的感觉似乎一样,真的是那种看着无法答题的。愣着愣着也不是办法,只好想什么写什么,但是写下之后,看了看真的马嘴不对象牙。管它的,豁出去了,最多重拿这科。时间毫无停留地过去了,我却仍然未碰纸末(我看遍了整张纸,翻到最后一题我也不会做啦!)哈哈。就这样很伤心气愤地交上卷纸,但是后来听到很多同学都说超难,我心里好过一点。哈哈,我不是在诅咒他们,而是若大家都不会做,那么bell-curve就会被拉底,本来拿F的会有机会拿至少一个D吧。

刚才一回到家就开网页看漫画,要酬劳酬劳自己一下。看到六点半多,就觉得看够了,乖乖惯了网页,去冲个凉,现在有精神写这个BLOG。哈哈。

Suddenly my chinese typer go crazy... dun know why... anyway... that's all haha... 2 more papers to go and I will be free from this sem, yeah! Next sem... hopefully be a better one... hehe, I thank God for helping me to get through today's paper. Hehe... May I continue to remember His word and have to remind myself to be patient and not be demotivated when I see others start their holiday earlier than mine... hav to control myself, this "old body".

Post CS2261 submission...

Yesterday night was indeed an exciting night... rushing projects conitnuously for... more than 1 week... coz my BMP wasn't able to work... thus I spent 2 days (including nights) to 3 days, typing the entire BMP (coz I copy and paste at first go)... so... but glad that God provide me with a conducive room (an aircon room), nice nice... finally yesterday manage to deploy... but after I post it up and exit deploy tool, the ear file I was working on... disappear that really frightens me... oh man... sweat sweat... so... now I can only put my faith on God about this submission then... haha...

Feel great after completing my CS3212 assignment, the last one, YEAH! Happy happy... hmm but.... it is because of these assignments that drill the stuff into my brain... if without assignments... though I won't be so stressed, not sure if the CS3212 stuff will sink in my brain or not... nvm think too much haha... jsut let it be... now... looking at the webcast from rePL, imPL to oPL haha... the one that I missed as I was rushing the CS2261 project... haha...

After that... will try CS3212 challenge H... then also CS3220 assignment 2... haiz... next week is demo week.... almost study week le... so that also means almost exam week... haha... then a busy holiday...

Saturday, October 21, 2006

Sometime I just regret what I said...

Haiz... been rushing this CS2261 project the whole morning, accompanied by my "real-time" nose that knows how to schedule which hole to run and which hole to be blocked... gosh, my nose bcum a real time operating system... haha...

With a bit of "tangling in the air" feeling, I just wondering if I am right to take this CS2261 or not (well this is the only optional module I am taking this sem). Haha.. though I know it will have a project... but seems like I take it at the wrong sem, mayb. Haha... coz 3rd yr contains some tough modules, that require deep understandings but I haven't touch them at all.

I remember I said "I like programming", but ... in the end, this programming language module CS3212 (my elective) brings the weekly disaster and have taken most of my sleeping time... then I thod I can do this CS2261 project nicely, but in the end... need to rush and do all the copy and paste job... haha... haiz... sometime I just regret what I said...

I have tried to participate in the forum that is fun... and never get to do that during my 2nd yr while I was holding a post in the committee of HO. Haha... (coz I wasn't able to read all the posts in the forum at that time)... this yr, having fun reading the forum and help if I can... and post questions if I dun know... really fun having smart ppl who are willing to answer queries in the forum... and thanks to those person, I manage to rush off my programming assignments b4 their deadline. Haha... so I encourage everyone to participate in the forum...

However, too bad, can't participate much in some of the modules I really have no idea... such as CS3220... though not many posts there... (mayb others all also as blur as me? or they have no doubts in understanding?) haha... if u ask me why I not posting questions there if I dun understand... well... the answer is simple... I dun even know what to ask... CS2271 and CS3220... having a hard time in answering their tutorial qns... think i will start on those after finish this CS2261...

This is the only word I said I not regretting: though programming is fun, but when the due date is near, it is no longer fun, but rush... haha...

Haha... but I glad that I got the concept of the stuff to do this project... haha... spent a long time in understanding (that's why I lost in other modules)... haha... I know that I not those smart type... thus need to be hardworking... but sometime I just so lazy to do anything... (will doze off v soon if I read any textbk that is not interesting to me)... well... some subject grabs my interest and thus can leads to do hardwork on it... but those others that dun... I need to push myself to stick with those stuff... till the sem ends. Haha... I can't escape those anyway... those are my core... haha...

Haze has been a major polluted elements over the past one month and it is significantly deteriorate our health... what has human done to the Earth, God's creation? God let human to represent Him to take charge of all organisms in Earth, but after sin has come into the world, human destroys God's creation... and... sadly, human still think they are doing the right thing... haiz... sad to say... and sad to hear....

I thank God for choosing me to be one of His children. I remember all the time that God is with me, and when I thod of this, I feel the sense of happiness in my heart that yes, He is by my side and I have nothing to worry abt, including this project... just do my best... hehe...

May the person who took away the small plank that WAS hanging on my door knob (outside) will treasure that plank (written on the plank was the verse John 3:16) haha... and bcum a child of God too... hope he/she didn't throw it away... or break it...(if it is like that, wah... offensed xia? or that verse reminds him of his sin when he sees it...), haha... k... hungry le.. going down for lunch then off to rehearsal... Harmonica Impressions 2006! jia you bah Isabel and Han Quan... a good learning ground for you 2, before you face the major one in March next yr...

Busy sem...

Have not blog since 14 august... the last time I blogged is before my 3rd yr 1st sem has started... now... we have reached almost the end of the sem... with all the deadlines and all the heavy stuff that I haven't had the time to go revise...

At first few weeks ago, wanting to implement 早睡早起, looks like I really "早睡" and can't "早起". My "早睡" here.... means very early in the day... haha... for example 16/10, 2am. Haha... very early hor... and so... the next morning cannot "早起". Well the initial meaning wasn't mean that way.... suppose to sleep 15/10, 10pm or 11pm... then wake up at 16/10 5am or 6am... but can't do that coz can't cope with my body... the nature that wants to sleep more ... haha... just for a saturday coz only that day I can tell myself (and not to be guilty) to sleep till 8 or 9am.

Haiz... haze pollutes SE Asia and I can sense myself... getting sick again... (have bcam sick ard mid-sept once before)... looks like the virus found me again...

All this while from the time I last blogged till now... good home-cooked food with my bros and Li Che (paiseh... they everytime do the cooking and clearing up, while I just play my ps2 and... well, did help in clearing up -> dump the dustbin), bad pgp canteen experience (as always), project due date, hard tutorials, termpaper which i chin chai do, blurblur labs, haha... 应有尽有, 多姿多彩... can't wait for the holiday... haha... also... too many photos... haha dun know which one to share... but all put in my external drive le, lazy to bring it on... haha... next time bah... hehe...

凡事谢恩,不住祷告,常常喜乐. Forgot to add: Precious lessons from God. If you are suffering, take it as a test from God. Don't take it that you must have sinned that causes God inflict punishment on you. Hehe... learn from Job, and be careful of not falling into the same conclusions as Job's 3 "friends", who accused Job. Also... for all the sufferings that happen to us, God's permission is seeked. A great comfort because those happens around us is what God allows, and He knows we can get over with those sufferings by depending on Him. Just look at how Devil ask God's permission to inflict disaster on Job. God has faith in Job that he will not turn back on Him, thus allows Devil to inflict disaster, but not taking away his life.

Do not question why God do this or do that... He is our creator and He has all the power. Be submissive to Him. Obey all His words. See Joshua 1:8.

Harmonica Melodies concert on 10 Aug

The day that we, the working committee, been waiting for... Harmonica Melodies From Italian Master, Willi Burger, (read as Buu-ger) and his pianist Marcello Parolini. We thought it will be the last busy day with these Italians, but you will found out soon that it wasn't over yet for Ferry, Diep and me on the next day (bringing Burger couples and Parolini to the zoo wasn't that busy after all, casual and fun... like those Italians, ;D)

The concert was great but give Han Quan and I a great fright because we thought he skipping the intermission and we 2 have no way of telling them to come back... we realised that they know what they doing during the intermission. Haha...

Mr Burder and Parolini on stage during concert
After the concert, we have a post concert reception, got signature signing by Mr Willi Burger, Mr Willi Burger's 2 latest album on sale and some photo taking. Haha...

Post concert casual activities
Oh yeah, we represent plaques to Mr Willi Burger during the concert and gifts for Mr Parolini and Mr Antonio (their manager cum medical doctor) after the concert.

Toekn of apprecation to the Italians
Then here are the other photos we have taken... for fun. Haha...

Photo taking session...

A church outing on 9 Aug

On the Singapore National Day, I went to MacRitchie Reservoir for a tree top walk with my bible study group from the church. It was wet walk in the beginning but thank God that the rain was gone and the sun was out when we nearly reach the tree-top trail. Before we walked onto the trail, we saw quite a number of signboards telling us "Don't look back". Hmm why? Well, it is for me to find out... and yikes! It is so tall above... the bridge could give a bit of swing when walking on it... and the chains holding it, don't seems to give me the courage and confidence to walk on it slowly... haha... I suppose they forgot to add the word "Don't look down" too for those who scare of heights. Haha...

That's me at the front there, walking very fast and careful...
While I was moving off swiftly, but carefully, along the trail, others are having fun.

While others enjoying the trail...
After the trail, we look for our way out.

Trying to find the way out of this park...
After we went out of the park, we went to East Coast Park for a cycle while some skateblading. After we finish cycled, we went home by bus and gosh, we are so tired...

So tired... hey, someone missing here...
Well, basically that's all for the outing haha... it is a tired one but fun haha... though I still think the tree-top trail is scary... haha... lol...

Day 1 of Japan Tour

Let me see what photo I can put for this Day 1 in Japan... by the way this Day 1 refers to 14 May, the day which we arrived at Japan. We reached Japan around 1pm (Singapore time) so it is 2pm (Japan time). Mr. Watani met us in the airport and boy, am I so glad to see his excited face. Haha... he then brought us to take train to the hotel. (Roll your mouse over the pictures)

Hello mum and dad, we arrived safely at Japan...

Not as fast as what I thought it would be though. Haha... Here are some great views outside the window.




Look at who is making the silly face... (unexpected, right?)

Kahying's true colour!
After we checked into the hotel, Eiji-san (Akiko's friend) brought us to another shopping town, Akihabara. We have Japanese Fast Food (those sold in Japanese cuisine here in Singapore).

Mmm... nothing better than a hot soba in such a cold weather!
Giving our stomach a treat!
Then we took photo in front of the fast food restaurant we have our dinner.

Missed out Diep, WenShan and Hayin
All 5 males
By the way the 2nd photo shows all the male (excluding chee yong and nam leng's husband). Hehe... Wenshan was not with us, as she was with her god-sister (the 2nd female from the left), our en ren. Hehe...

From left: Wenshan, her god-sister, her friend and Chee Yong
They went to see Tokyo tower, (which the others did not).

Coming back to the others, after dinner, we go to have some viewing and taking photos. Hehe...

We walk around the area before we return to the hotel. "People, people, those who want to eat breakfast tomolo morning, we meet at 6am Japan time." The next morning, YungHua, TungNgie, ChangKiat, Ferry, Diep, LiChe, KahYing and me went to Yoshinoya to have our breakfast... receive discount vouchers somemore... who want? I got bring them back... haha... for souvenir? LOL! The others havent wake up. To my surprise, the sky at 5.30am (Singapore time) in Japan is the same like Singapore's 8.30am (Singapore time)... wow... sunny bright liao... hahaha... at first I thought Ferry's watch and the clock from my handphone was broken... hahaha...

Last pic: Plastic display of food, very popular way of displaying the dishes available by any Japanese restaurant...

The real food is better than the display... totally opposite in Singapore!

Japan Tour 2006

Our concert tour to Japan from 14 May 0600++ till 21 May 0100++ is a very enjoying and fun one, hehe... we should have 2 days of performance but one of them has been cancelled.

After we checked into the hotel, we went out shopping and had a dinner in Akihabara, with Akiko's friend, Eiji-san, being our good lead. He can speak English very well, thus becoming our translator while we are in Japan.

Can guess which one is Eiji-san?
We performed on the Day 2: 2 primary schools and 1 cultural exchange with Waseda University's Harmonica Society. Great fun... we toured both primary schoolds and found great differences between Singapore and Japan schools... haha... we try to learn Japanese language, while they try to learn English. Haha... cool!

After our cultural exchange with the Waseda Harmonica Society, we went to a pizza restaurant, called "Shakey's". We have a great dinner as all of us communicate with one another... erm... mixture of English and Japanese... we try to learn Japanese from them. Get their contacts and fill our stomach to the fullest... onaka ipai...

In Kyoto, we were very glad to have a good tour guide that brought us around. He's a Malaysian too, old buddy of Winson.

Kim Siang - Malaysian who receives scholarship to study in Japan! Wow!
Look how smart is he. Hehe... he brought us to have a sushi lunch... though not my choices (I don't eat raw food), with the help of Hwa Chin, Li Che and Ferry, I was able to fill my stomach with cooked food. Thanks to three of them (four of us having one table).

Ferry is the one taking photo
LiChe is the one taking photo
We came across a temple - Golden temple, which really makes of gold. It has been burnt before, but it is rebuilt and refurnish with gold at later date. Kim Siang (sorry if I have spelt his name wrongly) told us that the island surrounding the temple has water hose that will shoot out water on the temple if the temple is on fire... and the only one using the temple is monks... erm... who set the fire?

Jin Ge Shi - Golden temple
Another unforgettable scene is the Water Symphony that we "accidentally" seen on the day we returned to Tokyo from Kyoto. It is really cool. Some of us take a short clip of it... but since it drained a lot of memory space... dunno whether they still keeping it or not... haha... I manage to get some pictures of it.

Water symphony fountain - One of the songs
Next is the Disney Land. I love the rides and the parades... but we missed the fieworks because of the bad weather. We have seen 2 parades, one in the noon and one in the night. The night one is Electra Parade.





We spent one whole day in Disney Land and it is super fun. Haha... we visited the flee market the next day (which is the last day).


Then we went to a small restaurtant to have our last meal in Japan, the food is great, feel like in a Japanese home.
