what ive been up to

been quite a while since my last post eh? but i always say that. blogs r like girls, burdensome yet indispensable. haha, juz kiddin....

anyway, the 1st exam came n went last week....there was only 1 subject (japanese language) tho, n i got 98.5% for it....in fact i din actually study apart from a bit of last minute look-thru....im not a genius tho, its juz dat knowing chinese helps tremendously wif learning japanese...esp since the teaching speed isnt very fast anyway....

to take sum of the free time off my hands, i joined the sch karate club n a classical guitar class....the karate club is juz as its name suggests, a club....there's usually no instructor so the senpai (seniors) teach newbies like me...n man its hard 2 adapt 2 karate after two years in taekwondo...hv 2 relearn the stances, movement n everything from ground up.....

lately my ability to write chinese characters hv degraded to a horrifying extent....some of the words ive forgotten r so simple dat it seems impossible i cud hv forgotten them...haih, i suppose dat comes of not writing them for the past 2+ years....luckily i can still recognise the words so i hv an edge in learning japanese kanji.....

speaking of memories, lately iv been having 'lapses' into the past, especially when im in class. sumtimes i'd settle down into my seat n sort of think dat im back in my old classroom back home, then i'd juz look up from my book n wonder how in the world m i in a country thousands of miles away, in the same class as ppl from all over the world. theres sum sort of 'shock' involved, u noe. but dun worry, its not homesickness, more of 'surprise' or sumting nia....

last but not least, visited fuchu city planatarium the sunday b4 last, n university of tokyo last sunday. visit yst's blog for details..hehe...

ah well, did my duty to the blog...will b going on a trip 2 mt fuji tml....hope its gonna b fun!

ja mata guys!

not daydreaming...its a feeling dat i get...like i suddenly feel like its my old classroom wif my old classmates n stuff...then when i look up the feeling juz 'drops' out from under me....
