Ahhh yes yes, i know i have not been blogging for a darn long time since my last post has been what feb?.. ok so theres long lists to update.... well finished my sem as usual then i went on to my 5 week practicum at Outram..
Outram was pretty fun, i had a good bunch of teachers and great CTs to guide me...not to mention the fun i had while teaching my class. My NA and NT classes are especially fun to teach... my NA class was pretty engaged which is good...and my CTs and my Sup was quite happy with my performance so far..so its pretty good that i passed..
After practicum, dearie and I went to Batam to celebrate our anniversary...though we celebrated on the day itself with a cable car ride and dinner... we went to batam on an all expenses paid trip by dearie as a present for me haha... we enjoyed ourselves loads with plenty of down time, relaxing, playing scrabble, swimming and simply walking around. Batam was pretty fun for a short getaway..
Guess wads my present for her...haha we went to a concert by Jeff Chang since dearie quite like his songs and I find him quite good too... His concert at Max Pavilion is great..lots of great fans and nice song numbers... an enjoyable experience!!
After the Batam trip, i simply slacked, played a lil sports with dearie and celebrated Papa's birthday. We had dinner at Ah Yat seafood and we had our favourite bamboo clams and i got to eat suckling pig as well haha...
Lately, i just came back from a 3 day 2 nites live on board diving trip as part of getting my PADI certification... well since we were with some advanced divers...our dives were in interesting parts of the Pulau Aur in Malaysia where currents were stronger and unlike calm waters which we are supposed to do our drills, we actually went to real dive sites to do our training dives... its really beautiful down below where we saw lots of marine life... from stingrays and morey eels to schools of barracuda and even a giant barracuda..nt to mention also all the fishes u can find in finding nemo...minus the shark which we could not get to see...we even saw parrot fish, lion fish and trigger fish...and some mysterious sightings of cuttlefish i think...the dives were great and the water is good.. viz is not too bad except for the last dive at jack rock where viz is about 6-8m i think.. but yeah good dives..compared to normal diving courses where u had to do lotsa stuff at absolutely calm water sheltered bays, these dives were a little more challenging but alot more interesting since my instructor told us if it was the normal kinda training, the dive sites are not beautiful and there would have been little to see.. hahah now i am gg into my new semester again...so ya..hope i blog more this time round yeah!!

yes yes i know..i've taken a break from blogging since the last semester...well for updates, exam results aint too bad this time round, managed to improve on my GPA again, thank God for that.
Lately i've become more of a jetsetter of sorts since i travelled to china, Shanghai during the term break and then went to Genting for a lil birthday getaway with dearie. Well 2010, i have more trips planned since i am going to Bangkok in May and Krabi in June as well as Bryan's bachelor's party in June. its going to be fun fun fun!! i simply can't wait for it to come.
haha the trips i've been on the last year and this jan was really great and had loads of fun. Genting was pretty good since i get to do archery and venture into the casino. i even played a few rounds of roulette which saw me generate 40% returns in my bets lol. That aint too bad for a first time venture, but then just play with discipline and not to get hooked on gambling is definitely a must. Play a little just for fun, play within the means is an important thing and its defintely a sobering thought, especially the way i saw people betting in denominations of $25 and higher while little me just plays with $5 chips..just think of the money they are throwing away.!! give some to me and i can really eat loads of good stuff.. surely we can't get rich on gambling, i have no illusions about that...unless ur the casino owner then you would win big..no matter what.
the semester has now started and i am now glad to be out of the clutches of the biased Sri Lankan Terrorist who single handedly pulled my grades now from an A to a B+. what to say, some of us guys totally hate him. Moi? i just think of him as a biased prick who is definitely not effective in teaching at all.. why did i take his modules? well there is simply no choice since his mods are usually core, ir not, then it is usually the ones that are more straightforward. i mean at least u can count on that prick to be consistent in setting exam questions exactly the same as his tutorial questions, even the requirements are the same, only wording wise is different. Now i can avoid him and go on to take the other two offered electives which makes me absolutely happier that i do not need to face that terrorist anymore.
well the semester is starting again and i do hope i can continue to do well and improve on my GPA while ensuring i do not get any Cs...i survived thus far without getting any Cs and i think i can definitely go on to do well..
