Got my contact lenses yesterday at Bangkok!
They're dark brown, so they're not really, like, obvious. You have to focus on my eyes to see them.
Now for a tan...send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org

**PLAYING IN THE RAIN...**
...is so fun!
I forgot how it felt like to *frolic* in the rain, wrestle with friends, and sprawl out on the puddles until last night. It's been so many years since I've done all that.
I didn't think of getting wet in the storm (there were lightning and thunder) after the Student Music Recital. So, we were stranded in church. Tibe-tibe je
, Shimona ran into the rain with her arms spread out. I took off my shirt (eh
, I got singlet underneath, okay?) and joined her. Then, Abednego came with us. We ca
catwalk under the rain. So funny one.
Later on, Robert (a Theo student) and Aaron arrived with plastic bags. Like, we expected *umbrellas*. We sloshed water at them until it became a war of puddle water. Then, I wrestled Robert, WWF style. Being stronger than I am (but I bet I'm more flexible than he is), Robert managed to tackle me down and forced me into the *ankle deep* puddle. Tibe-tibe je
, he cried, "I now baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son, and of the Holy Ghost!" My undies were soaked through!
All the wrestling and splashing was fun, but tiring too. We're not as young as we used to be. Oh my. I just made it sound like we're so old already. I'm not even in the twenties yet :( So anyways, Aaron and I just sprawled out on the ground like it was our dorm room. It was so cool to feel the raindrops on my body. But got one thing stupii la
: the rain also went up my nose. That was so uncool.
It was (according to Vivian) rejuvenating. I felt so good after that. Well, emotionally at least, because I did come down with a lightheaded sensation. But I'm not sick today! Sort of. I'm just sneezing more than usual. I don't have the flu, though. More like there's something bothering my nose.send comments to email@example.com

**Change of Colour**
Please be patient for the words, okay? I know you like them, but it's not easy to compile a without leaving some of the good words out.
Anyway, I got my hair dyed really light brown yesterday. A little light to my liking. Like, when I got out of the shower after rinsing my hair, I saw myself in the mirror and I was like *WOAH!!!* I don't know whether it's because of the hair, but today Ms Tanya said that I could pass as an Italian :) Do you really think I could, Ms Tanya? It's kinda cool to think that I could!
Or, it could be the tan. I have just developed this obsession for suntanning. (An Asian? Suntanning? Hahahaha!) I've been doing it everytime I go swimming, like every Sunday. I know it's really bad, like it can cause skin cancer, but I think bronzed skin is so...full of life. I don't really like to be told that I'm fair. Once, one of my friends called my pale. Can you believe it??? Pale??? Not her fault. Maybe I was really pale. Anyway, there's a major difference of skin colour along my tan line (around my waist, the area covered by my undie and above it). And I mean major. I got the tan yesterday, but it didn't really show until today. I was mostly red yesterday.
I'm gonna get coloured contact lenses next. Just for fun. Hehehe. Change the colour of my eyes.
Like, my parents are so gonna freak out when they see my new "colour scheme." Heck, they might not even recognize me!!! Hahaha!
Can't wait to see the look on their faces...send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org

**A Few Words **
Below are some of the many words (and phrases) invented here in MC.1. YAYS
a corrupted version of "Yes." Pronounced with constricted throat muscles to achieve a "squeezed" effect. Can mean (other than "yes" alone) "whatever," "I'm fine" (in response to "How are you?"), or simply to express inexpressible annoyance. Highly overused.2. STUPII/PII
"pii" pronounced "pweek" with a soft "k", it is a corruption of "stupid." Most usually followed by a nasalized and emphatic "ugh." "STUPII" is sometimes accompanied with "UNGH" (refer to word #7). Can also be used to express annoyance.3. NOY
recently coined term meaning "No." Believed to have Japanese origins. Rarely used.4. JE-GAK/JE-GLAK
signifies the embarassing event of falling down, esp. where one falls flat to on ground like a ragdoll. Indonesian origins. Seldom used.5. JE-PLAK
with a guttural stress on the second syllable, it is used to describe a flat surface or something resembling a flat surface. Commonly used to describe the back of the head. Believed to have Malaysian origins. Occasionally used.6. HEH
pronouced by expelling a lot of air on both the H's and in a high, child-like tone. Its English equivalent would be "Hey." Frequently used before a person's name; it is also accompanied with a "YAYS" (refer to word #1).7. UNGH
a profanity, this word is commonly used to insinuate sexual arousal. It is pronounced with a rising tone. Sometimes preceded by "STUPII" (refer to word #2). Only used by the shameless.8. YO/SHO
most commonly used by the Chinese, and the Chinese wannabes (Iban and Mexican), this expression is a derogative of the original "Aiyoh." It is more frequently used to express annoyance than anything else. It has two tones: 1. a rising tone; 2. a falling tone; 3. a rising-falling-rising tone. Tone #3 is used to express extreme annoyance.9. MUCHO SI
coined by an ignorant Malaysian, this superlatively grammatically-incorrect Spanish phrase literally translates as "Very yes." It is used, with conviction, to reinforce the truth. Once disapproved, this phrase is now widely accepted and even used by one Mexican.10. FISH/FISHCAKE
only used by Vivian, this word is the more acceptable way of saying "F*ck." Its use is also similar to the F-word. Frequency of use is dependent on the mood of the user (Vivian). Copyrighted.
We at MC are very proud to be multilingual. More words coming up!send comments to email@example.com

**Sometimes, Double is Bad**
My quest for a sculpted jawline is complete. Well, almost. Plus, my double chin is "single-ing" out too:) Believe me, skinny people get double chins too, okay? Sure, it's not as bad as the obese people's, but it's there. Gravity can be such a bitch sometimes. (Just imagine if gravity pushed instead of pulled, we'd have double foreheads. Eew. All of a sudden a double chin isn't as bad anymore.) BTW, I'm not that skinny, but somewhere between "very skinny" and "just nice."
I'm trying to eat less fattening foods, which is quite difficult here, considering the amount of oil they use, and practising some neck exercises (as ridiculous as it sounds, they do exist). I believe (power) yoga is helping too, and with the unanticipated comeback of the freakin' hot weather, I sweat SO MUCH more than ever. It feels like losing two cups (that's like 500ml) of water in just one session. So there, for those who do not believe that yoga actually causes sweating, because it does. My yoga mat, some sort of a breathable, synthetic rubber, always gets soaked through now. It's supposed to be waterproof, so either I'm sweating too much or it's not doing it's job.
Holding my head up seems to help too. I'm so much more aware of my posture now that I'm walking straighter. Sitting down is still a problem though. Argh. I'm digressing. Keeping the head up keeps the fat spread out. Just think of how it all gets compressed when looking down. Think of how disgusting it is, squeezing the fat together into a great, hideous mass that is the double chin. So, why not keep the head up? Extend that neck, smooth out the area under the chin.
There is a reason why God gave us only one chin. He knew that we'd look really ugly with two. It's kinda like having another pair of unkissable lips right below the normal lips. So gravity, why are you giving us another one? It's bad enough we gotta haul ourselves up the seemingly unending flight of stairs to church or class.send comments to email@example.com

**The Phone Call**
I got the weirdest phone call yesterday afternoon.
Some unknown girl called me up. Asked for my name, my nationality, and my major. Naturally, being the paranoi -- er -- cautious
person I am, I avoided the questions and turned them back on her...
...until the point where she got kind of pissed.
I also told her that I didn't want any trouble from her or from her friends, straight out. Perhaps that's why she got pissed. Guess I'll never know now, huh?
She asked me to hang up. I told her to do it first. And she did, before saying goodbye and all that shit.
I'mentitled to my privacy, right? My life is my own (well, actually it's God's). I don't just go ahead and tell some horny and desperate chic, who randomly dials my room number, everything she wants to know about me. That's what the girl did. Well, that's what she said: "I just simply pressed the numbers...." Yeah right. I bet my mental picture in her head was "spontaneous" too.
Hmmm. All this time, I thought the people here thinks I'm gay. FYI, I have no problems now of being wrongly perceived as gay. At least the freaks*
I'm just waiting for a GUY
to call me. Now that would be weird. Hehehe.

I have three tests today: one I forgot about, another I am confident about, and the third one I absolutely don't care about.
The one I forgot about is over. Lucky for me, it was English. No one studies for English writing. The only problem I had was writing a bibliography in the test. I hope I got it right. Argh
I am confident about my note-check which is roughly in 45min's time. MC Choir memorizes songs. Blah
. Two songs to do today. One Spanish one (ooh, I love this one), and one really shitty one. I haven't quite memorized the shitty one. I think the others haven't too. Except Dinah. She's so admirable. Sigh.
The test in the afternoon is really one I couldn't care less about. Thai Language and Culture class. What a waste of time. What a waste of money. But I need the credits! So I'm stuck in the boring class with a less-than-a-man lecturer. Chai mai?
At least today's Friday. That means resting for me. Well, sort of. That also means handing in last-minute reports and assignments for Marriage and Family class. General Education courses. Hhmph
. And I'm not done with all of them yet. I still have one more reading report, an interview, a babysitting report,...
Ah yes. College is fun, is it not?send comments to email@example.com
