terrible weekend, it was.
1stly, we'll start off wif friday. well actually, i cant remember much of friday. i think i spent the afternoon reading harry potter which my neighbour jing yin so kindly lent me, then napped, then went off to tuition n slept summore, then after tuition went out for dinner wif parents, then at nite i prepared for the sat physics competition by chatting on9 n reading harry potter...
picked up shin jeh the LongMan n went to usm for the physics competition. as usual...u guessed it. messed up. the hall was damn cold, every1 complained bout it. for a cold-phobic person like me, it was hell in antartica. towards the end of d 2 1/2-hr competition my fingers were so numb i crossed out one line at least 3 times b4 managing 2 write it properly. the questions themselves were a lot easier than i had anticipated, which is not to say i managed 2 do them all cuz i din study...din wan 2 waste time on a 'lost cause', u see.....tho i suppose if i studied n refreshed my memory on the formulae things wud hv been much easier lah. as things were, i langsung din touch one of the four questions cuz i had to derive almost every equation from scratch, having forgotten all the formulae. felt relly shitty after the test cuz almost every1 finished all 4 questions except for me n i prob cud hv if i had only tried harder.
neway, after the test i spent the rest of d morning driving aimlessly around wif shin jeh n ariel (who had unexpectedly turned up for the competition) looking for a place 2 hv breakfast, then went 2 buy bus tickets for my sis...by the time i got home it was past lunchtime n after the meal i proceeded to waste the afternoon spending an inordinate amount of time typing a few questions for my mom n napping the rest of the time away.
around 6.30 wei liang arrived at my hse n we left for choh khai's where we met up wif d rest of 'team A' - fatty, ck n rentai. went for western food at pulau tikus, then headed for gurney....walked round d place a bit, visited xinch at tower records, n had a field time pestering william (the current head prefect) wif misscalls while eating cake at secret recipe. felt kinda guilty bout it later tho....anyway, after dat we went 2 take a few pics at gurney drive, i got up on the ledge n held a side kick but fatty goay messed up d pic (glares). after dat everyone went home n i once again turned 2 harry potter b4 sleep....
(btw, gurney is such a depressing place. u see all the happy couples walking around together n u'r alone. ok, not u, ME. )
morning passed uneventfully...went out wif family for dim sum breakfast then read harry potter again - i was trying 2 finish it within the weekend - then after lunch went to hv a haircut. well, all i can say is dat it was a haircut of haircuts....i'm now known by such names as 'monk', 'heng ee boy', 'commando', etc....plus the idiot barber made me wait for almost (or more than) an hr! @#&$^%&@#$
later when i went home, it was harry potter again (thankfully, the end wasnt too far off d), then nap, then ej came 2 pick me up for tennis. spent bout 45 minutes trying 2 locate caryn's hse, then picked HER up n went straight 2 psc. xinch was late. xinch missed a lot of balls. i hit out a lot of balls. ej killed a lot of balls. (in case anyone's wondering, those were tennis balls. dun think too much.) at 7 we stopped n went 2 d pool for a swim then showered then all went out in ej's car for dinner....
then it happened when we were parking outside subaidah's. ej was reversing into the parking space n he inched out again to adjust...then suddenly a fucker on steroids drove by at mebbe 60 kph. IN A CARPARK. his side n ej's front connected n he dragged ej's front bumper clean off (almost) b4 he stopped. d fucker got out n started blabbering n at 1st we were all too shocked n tot it was our fault. later we worked out the details n discovered dat HE shudnt hv been driving dat fast in d 1st place. plus it was likely dat his car's side swerved into us as we were inching forwards, so it was HIS fault.
but anyway, we juz stood our ground n waited for ej's parents 2 arrive. THEY started calling in 'reinforcements'....u noe..those thuglike biker-types who claim to be foremen but were probably their relatives or sumting. same bad seed, i say. so i called ghee. if it came 2 a brawl at least we got 2 fighting men. meanwhile the OTHER fuckers who had their car parked next to ej's, started ranting about their car being scratched. for gods sake d scratch was so small it was almost invisible! n they were talking bout wanting the whole fucking car resprayed cuz it cudnt b polished. bullshit, may they die early. trying to profit from other ppl's troubles....in particular i remember this crossed-eyed bitch (ok, not relly crossed eyed, i juz needed something 2 describe her) who alternated between 'its your fault, YOUR FAULT, N I DUN CARE N U MUST PAY ME' n 'hey i'm talking nicely to u, dun shout at me pls'....man, if i had a stick, i wud ram it up her (.....)
anyway when ej's parents arrived they settled the bitch quickly (tho she profitted by 50 bucks, which imho she shudnt hv deserved. she cant even get dat amount if she sold herself) then concerning the 'main' accident, they decided to let d police settle, which was a wise choice cuz the fucker prob wud go ahead n report to police behind our backs even if we agreed 2 settle it in private. the cheek, claiming we were at fault. hope next time he speeds n hits a parking car, it wud b a 20-ton lorry. (humourless laugh)
anyway after ej's parents went off to the police station, the wind startd acting up...sand flying everywhere n we startd worrying bout dat holy man or watever's vision. so ghee dropped me n caryn back home. end of story. one wasted weekend n one busted car.
