At Home

you know, i really love those cookies/biscuit-things from Marks and Sparks - the Jam Sandwiches that have lovely cookies sandwiching cream and some jam with sugar on top. i could eat a whole packet at one sitting, so it's probably a good thing we don't have them in the house very often.

speaking of being in the house, today's the first day in a while that i've spent a considerable amount of time in the house by myself, and it's been quite quite fun. i've been inordinately tired lately, so it was good to spend most of the afternoon goofing off and sleeping. alex came over and we hung out all afternoon here, which was good, and after he left and my parents took off for a dinner-thing at their friend's place (they're still not back) i was left to my own devices. so i -watched some formula one (yeah Schumi! i knew you could do it. pole position yet again!), dozing off periodically (though i did wake up to watch Schumi's qualifying round and did he set a blistering pace or what!), and then retiring to my airconditioned room to watch Gosford Park for the third time on my iBook. i love that movie, and i picked up the DVD cheap on wednesday so i could watch it again with subtitles (the subtitling was definitely below par on this one).

so whew. some recharging time, always a good thing. though i think i shall be spending a lot of next week 'recharging' - falling asleep - during our Seminar at NUS. ah well. the price you pay and all that.

oh! and yesterday - nic's play -the ACJC play- took first in this year's SYF Finals, ying arrived home safely from NYC, and i tried the famous tau huay at Geylang Lorong 9 for the first time, appropriately enough with a bunch of my friends and ying's family around me. (ten of us squeezed into one bigass SUV, along with ying's luggage and all our assorted crap from work/shopping) 'twas great fun. but oh, yesterday was a long day. i really appreciated waking up late and staying in bed after i woke up this morning. monday is going to be a real bitch.

expect either tres light posting, or posting overload next week, depending on how demanding the seminar is, and whether i have internet access!

the seminar is 'Developments in Public Policy Seminar', part of the PSC midcourse programme, and it will probably make my brain explode. but what can i do. =)

D, i don't know what i can do about meeting up, but i shall msg you on your cellie. i assume the number is the same as last time -grin- i'll msg you when i get my schedule proper tomorrow (the one we have is sort of sketchy AND doesn't have times printed on it!)?
