wtf...im still here...haha

from the pen of a bored foreign student in japan...

lets see. the last post was 11 november, over a month ago. since then, exams hv came n went, n life has become a boring, meaningless mess. now im juz counting the days till i go home. sure, its been 2 weeks since exams ended, but sumhow the days juz slipped by without me doing a single thing that has any significance. im talking major frustration here. actually, i dun even noe wat im crapping about. except dat im damn bored, most of my frens hv either gone home or going out wif other ppl, n the guy i called to play warcraft 3 wif is talking on the phone wif his family. sucks....

anyway, a few updates on my life. the day immediately after exams, i went to Tama Zoo wif the ppl frm biology class...even tho im a physics student here. kinda reminiscent of the f6 days when me n seng chee wud get out of class to attend bio lectures...hehe. got a few pics from that trip. the focus of the zoo trip was sum sort of chimpanzee observation, due to the bio sensei happening to know a keeper at the chimps' compound.

some time after that there was a trip to ueno, a part of the central, 'real' (read: busy, crowded, stuffy even in winter) tokyo. at 1st wasnt planning 2 go, but sumhow got myself dragged along...n was glad i did, cuz at least we did sumting worthwhile, visiting an art museum (has anyone heard of Pira b4? sum french or italian guy, i forgot...wif a seriously deranged mind dat is reflected in the slightly disturbing pandemonia of his drawings) plus the Ueno National Science Museum, an extremely interesting place wif 6 floors full of skeletons, presesrved animals, videos, hands-on tech gadgets, u name it...all for juz 500 yen entrance fee! anyway, i'll put up d pics i took there, sumtime...next week. hehe.

speaking of pics, im proud 2 announce dat i got myself a new camera! a Canon IXY 900 IS to be exact, arguably canon's most advanced ultracompact digicam at the moment. bought it from the same online shop from which i got my slightly disappointing Logitech VX Revolution mouse. this time they were extremely prompt in service..i ordered n paid on tuesday n received it on thursday, incidentally the day exams 'ended'. tho at dat time i was kinda pissed off at myself for messing up my maths paper, so i received my camera wif slightly mixed feelings. its hard not too feel kinda empty when u get urself a 'reward' for sumting u din do well...

anyway, the camera turned out excellent in most cases since i started to use it...n unlike my computer n mouse, both china-made, this camera is 100% 日本製! so i can probably expect more reliability n durability from it in the future...hehe. as ive sed earlier, i'll post the pics sometime later when im feeling like it...nothing turns u off blogging more than the thought of uploading photos, anyway....

so anyway, this week was kinda bz cuz of discussion sessions wif the teachers to determine which university we can apply to...plus doing the actual applications n stuff, which actually doesnt take much time by itself; but ppl like me hv a habit of putting off important jobs until the last moment, then getting pek chek...for those who wan 2 noe, i applied for university of tokyo wif sum misgivings, n put university of osaka as my second choice...tho i probably stand a better chance of getting osaka cuz theres this damn vietnamese who's trying to get into tokyo uni too, n u noe how crazy vietnamese r when it comes to studying...

this week, too, a bunch of us went to a nearby park for a picnic n 'maple viewing', but unfortunately most of the maple leaves had already dropped off so we din get to see the lush red carpets on the trees that we've been expecting. oh well, there's still next year. i must say tho, autumn is probably the best time of the year n it sucked that we were all bz preparing for exams n din get to explore around a bit more...

this morning slept at 4am, woke at 5am to send a fren off, then slept again frm 7.30 to 2pm. so now im feeling really weird. add dat to a neck ache i got frm overexercising at the gym yesterday n u've got a seriously messed up guy that is me. n i hv 2 do sumting bout the stockpile of food in my fridge which i hv 2 clear out b4 i go home...plus buy souvenirs n stuff...haih...looks like life isnt that empty after all, but its still shitty....

ah, last but not least, yesterday there was a party n i got myself drunk on 2 glasses of beer plus 3 of wine...hehe...then tried to do sum breakdancing too...chin siao...but good thing was i got to show off my piano playing, plus there was a ton of food im usually too kiamsiap to eat, AND there was a ton of gals frm other programmes....tho i din get 2 talk to any...:)

anyway, enuf for now. time to kick my fren's ass in wc3
