takes away our fears
Saturday, 31 July 2010

got report slip yesterday, haha l1r5 would have been pretty good if i didn't fail my math this term cause almost all my grades went up,but oh well nvm shall mug even harder for prelims, and hopefully get 9points so that mrF can treat me to lunch :D

haha, and kt's gonna buy me 2 pink lightsticks for lightstick night :D yay pink lightsticks - damn both are spoilt, but oh well i did my part for charity so yeah (:

okayyy, my room's in an absolute mess right now because i cleared out my drawers and so i need to organize everything now before i go to sleep, toooddleess ;D

Day 16- Another picture of yourself
haha omg, was searching for a picture to post and i found this - my council exco shot in 2009 with my oversized white shirt (: 

Day 17- Someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why.
hmmmmm, i don't know. who would i want to switch lives with for one day?? probably a harvard university student, because i want to experience a day in the life of a student there,it's my ultimate dream to be a harvard graduate but it's almost impossible because i'm gonna go to poly after my O's, and i guess i'll be fortunate enough to even be able to get a place in NUS what more Harvard. haha oh well, i guess i can keep my hopes up right, who knows miracles do happen.

Day 18- Plans/dreams/goals you have

hmmm longterm ones.

1. Get l1r4/l1r5 - 5/6 for O's
2. Get into IBZ in NP
3. Maintain 4.0 GPA ( haha this is definitely a dream )
4. Get my GMA
5. Join FCF
6. Get into Harvard Business School
7. Get married and live happily ever after (:

day 13: a letter to someone who has hurt you recently

- well i can't think of anyone who has hurt me mentally/emotionally/spiritually recently

but for physically, yes.

to sharmini: who fell on me during our rugby game last week and made me injure my ankle, haha okay it's not all your fault 'cause it was my fault that you fell in the first place, but at the same time your butt should have looked at where it was falling. (alright joking) to prevent such accidents from happening, time we should just be on the same team next time so that we won't have to tackle each other (:

1. How you love me now - Hey Monday

Tuesday, 27 July 2010

:D I feel awesome right now because both tests for the day are over now. 

Been really busy lately - so much homework, so many tests and such intense mugging going on. Extra lessons are just draining all my energy and brain power so that most of the time when I get home, I'm mentally dead. ah well, but grades are back up this term so all that was pretty much worth it :) haha the feeling that I'm able to go home and read my thriller novels without having to rush through it is amazing ttm. Btw, to all those who like thrillers - read the silence of the lambs by Thomas Harris, it's super good i swear and I want to check out the rest of his books soon :)apparently the book has been made into a movie

oh gosh, I'm such a tumblraddict. Anyways tumblr meetup on 7aug 6pm who wants to go? :D

shall do all the tumblr tags I missed tonight when I have the jpg. of all the questions 

Lots of ♥, Cheryl

Sunday, 25 July 2010

time for a wordyy post - since my blog looks like a mess of photos now

day didn't go as expected, things that were supposed to happen didn't and those that weren't did. but oh well, day's already gone so no point brooding over it anymore. haha and after today, i'm even more determined to work hard and save up so that i won't have to worry about my future, i want my own car by the time i'm like 21 or smth - like one that i bought with my own money, but there's other considerations like university and the future so it's not like i can just throw all my savings into getting a car/whatever nonsense i want. sigh, jw ahborr if you see this you see this, it means we need to start earning monehh soon, blogshop blogshop :D

tweet of the day: upgrading iTunes to 9.2 and touch software to os4.0 has been the worst decision of my life

SCREW MY LIFE. now have to export all my notes through email, copy out all my bookmarks onto my laptop note, export itunes library, downgrade itunes, re-import music, restore itouch os to 3.2, reload sync ipod, rejailbreak, repersonalize, gonna take me the whole damn night. :( argh. stupid decision.

day 12 - how you found out about tumblr and why you decided to make one
because pei shanaynay kept telling me how cool it was and told me that i had to try it and i really love the tumblr community as well as the thought of expressing my thoughts through means other than words there (:

Lots of ♥, Cheryl

separated by our thoughts
Saturday, 24 July 2010

day has been relatively productive. stocked up books from the library so i'm all ready to go for the next few weeks to come :D i'm tired and i want to sleep. bye.

Lots of ♥, Cheryl

Friday, 23 July 2010

RHD photos will be up tmr, sorry peeps but i'm just too tired tonight and totally not in the mood.

day 9: something you're proud of in the past few days

proud of ASC (: can't believe that 4 years have passed and i've already stepped down from being a council senior, handing over the council as the 9th EXCO to the 10th. seems like just yesterday where i had my council interview with msS where i thought i totally screwed myself over, then joining council and being a part of this amazing family in fusion and moving on into sprint ( thanks sooo much weijun, that was the best valentines day present in 2008 ever ), undertaking 2008 investiture - in the eighties, choreographing dances, doing videography and all that, making invest the most successful one that i've ever seen in my years at anderson. superheroes teachers day 2008 another success and i ended up being a giant kiwi, becoming secretary general of ASC in 2009 as part of the 9th EXCO. i love you all my dear council juniors and we seniors will behind you all of the way, don't let anything taint your years and council, <3

day 10: songs you listen to when you're happy, sad, bored, hyped and mad

happy: california girls, blah blah blah, adored, boys and girls, alltimelow songs
sad: mainly christian songs or secondhand serenade + what if
bored: i put my itunes/itouch on shuffle and just listen to whatever song comes up
hyped: those danceable songs (: personal favs: your love is my drug, church, circus, boom boom pow
mad: i don't think i listen to music when i'm angry.

Lots of ♥, Cheryl

lonely streets
Wednesday, 21 July 2010

the retarded internet is killing me - i can't even upload a 50kb photo in like 10mins, and youtube doesn't work too, argh it's so irritating.

celebrated RHD in school today, last RHD for all the sec4's in anderson and probably the last RHD for me in my entire life - it just brings back feelings of nostalgia. well with that being said, day was pretty hectic. went to school early for chem test at 7.25, then had bio test at 9.30 and NSW english competition which i think none of us took it seriously, at least not for the entire thing, because it's simply impossible to finish it within 1hr what more 50+mins. sadd about my geog marks though. i missed the a1 grade by 0.6, pathetic ttm. hopefully the teachers are nice enough to round up my grades

had a nice three hour nap, so i'm pretty much gonna be awake the entire night now, so i'm gonna tidy my room and studdyyyyy!! okay it's getting pretty hot so i think i should on the aircon - but i'm getting a flu (i think) from walking in the rain yesterday with the clique. argh,

Day 8 - short term goals for this month and why

1. Revise at least 3/4 of O level syllabus once - because Prelims and O's are approaching

2. Get at least 5 hours of sleep everyday - because I made some promises that I have to keep and I need to learn to take care of myself more

3. Save more money into my bank acc and stop spending it - because bank acc's depleting really fast and I need to reach my $1000 goal by the end of the year

4. Eat more and get fat - because I'm getting way too skinny and it's starting to scare me

5. Organize room - room's in an utter mess right now but I'm too lazy to do anything about it haha so yeah time to do pack up everything

6. Exercise!  Keep up workout schedule and have early morning runs on saturday :D - cause I want to get fat but not flabby

7. Watch pretty little liars every week - my newest fav show till gossip girl season 4 returns

Lots of ♥, Cheryl

day 7 - a picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you


day has been utterly crazy, especially the rugby session during pe today, i swear it was the most violent game of my entire life. injuries were all more severe this week and i injured my ankle thank god it wasn't a sprain or anything though, it still hurts a little but yeah i think it'll be okay soon (: haha but momo was super cool during rugby today, :D

okay, i need to go and study for my double science tests tmr, hahah toodles

Lots of ♥, Cheryl

a twist in our story
Monday, 19 July 2010

day 6 - favorite superhero and why.

fictional superheroes are only around when crisis arises or when someone's in need of help, you don't know who they are, you don't know when and where they'll appear, you don't know what's the rationale behind all the things they do  . but God isn't like that, He's the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, He's here for you through the tears and the joy, He knows who you are and you know who He is. He performs miracles way beyond what those fictional superheroes can do and He loves us so much that He who knew no sin took up sin on our behalf.
which other superhero is comparable? to me, no one.

today was a bad day, but tomorrow will be better yeah?

Lots of ♥, Cheryl

french film noir
Sunday, 18 July 2010

attended the big walk 2010 today, had to wake up at 5+ and slept at like nearly 2am so ended up lugging my pillow and blanket the the car and sleeping on the way there, haha seems like it's been such a long time since i attended this with my parents, it used to be such a routine thing back when i was younger. my whole family would attend it all together even when i'm a little toddler and sat in my pram while my parents pushed me around. it was good though, enjoyed the scenery at marina area which i've never really explored.

day 5 - picture of a place that you've been to

ellis island - new york :D

Saturday, 17 July 2010

day 4 - a habit that you wish you didn't have
the habit of checking the fb pages of certain people,  it sucks because sometimes you end up learning about something that you didn't want to know, and i wish i didn't have this habit because maybe i would be happier that way.

really enjoyed my saturday today though fire starting got canceled in the morn (: last rangers session before i officially begin my exam break, hmm it's scary, the thought of having to make major decisions when i go back to rr again at the end of the year after my O's. i'm really dreading it but not thinking about it doesn't mean that the problem just cease to exist.

on a brighter note, dinner and night out with the guys was funn :D though we wasted a lot of time travelling and doing nothing, feels like it's been such a long time since we did something like this. hehe and leon's double rainbow OMG is getting to me. ( go look at his msn dp, haha damn cute - we're gonna have dp gif war soon )

p/s i can't tell you my problems if i can't talk to you about them.

Lots of ♥, Cheryl

yes all i want to do now is sleep :( because i have to wake up extra early tomorrow for more council stuff. i really thank God that tomorrow's friday because we end school early and i can catch up on my sleep as well as chiong my homework so that weekends are free for rangers and cellies. :D

give me strength to be the best that I can be for your glory and power.

Something from my tumblr.
day 1 - photo of yourself + 15 interesting facts about yourself

1.  I can injure myself with inanimate objects that people never thought would be able to cause any harm

4. I love Starbucks ttm

5. I absolutely and positively hate LIZARDS - to hell with all of them

9. I like the bands all time low, starfield, we the kings and the singers ke$ha, katy perry and pixie lott

10. I love stargazing though there aren't many stars here in Singapore. night sky in Bintan back in 2008 was amazing

Tuesday, 13 July 2010

she's so cute, haha makes me think of my gkids kiddos, samuel, daniel and hannah i miss you guys alot :( hopefully i've got time to rush down to davids after service to see you all this sunday.

should have totally stayed home today, only had 3 hours of lessons out of the 8 that i was supposed to have. thought it would be a pretty laxed day though, but ended up having to do 2 math revision worksheets, geog homework, integration worksheets and studying for chem and bio tests tmr.

p/s i miss you.

updating itouch's software now after having daryn bark at me about it for a few weeks now. hopefully it makes my itouch even better than it already is (:

Monday, 12 July 2010

today has been a really really long day, chinese for first period and i miraculously did pretty well for the essay that i wrote a few weeks back though i have a lot of 错别字, hehe and ivan looks like he's in desperate need of sleep, quite funny though, thanks for lending me your chem tys anyways (: rugby during pe was super fun, though tiring and painful. i think all of us got a couple on injuries here and there, i've got this bump on my arm now from banging into daryn and momo and it still hurts when i touch it but yeah other than that the game was awesome, people are different when playing rugby, sweehwa really scared all of us when she tackled jiaqin today. geog lesson just made me want to watch despicable me even more because stupid kt keeps reminding me of the scenes from the movie,  hmm maybe on sat with wbf :D and bio spa trial and geog test was hell.

but forever 21 jewelery came in the mail today ^^ so i'm still a happy girl
okay this sucks, it's only 10.36 and i feel sleepy already :(

Lots of ♥, Cheryl

you're the lover of my heart
Sunday, 11 July 2010

this is what my future boyfriend has to say to me - i honestly think this is the sweetest sentence ever
being able to accept all my physical and emotional scars,
that is love.

sunday service today (: well sermon was really good, pastor dishan's really an amazing speaker. and he really opened my eyes to see that so many other individuals out there are living on the edge for God. did you know that pastors in sri lanka face persecution and death yet choose to continue serving God and spreading His word even when they know that at any time they could be shot to death? for one it makes me feel so privileged to be here in Singapore where we're allowed to worship God freely and carry out His will without any persecution. what really stirred my heart was how these pastors loved God so much that they offered their lives as the ultimate sacrifice for the work of His kingdom. it makes me ashamed of myself for complaining so much about what i'm going through as when it's compared to what they had to do, it's really not comparable.

Lots of ♥, Cheryl

an exquisite extreme
Saturday, 10 July 2010

had 2 tests, english speech test and chinese comprehension test, lunch @ astons with jiaqin before mugging and heading down to the AVT for the crimson tide movie screening and fetching dilys from the airport at night.

cathigh homecoming and rangers. hehe so proud of myself, randomly took buses and it amazingly connected all the way so that i could reach victory christian centre for rangers (: and honestly, saturdays really aren't the same w/o rangers, don't know how i'm going to survive the rest of my exam break or whatever more's about to come. and the joke of the day? SHAWNIE-WANIE FLUNG HIS ARM TOWARDS MY FACE BY ACCIDENT AND HIT MY NOSE. YES IT HURT LIKE CRAP, BUT I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER AFTER SEEING HOW GUILTY IT WAS ABOUT IT. HEHE IF YOU READ THIS, YOU CAN STOP APOLOGIZING TO ME ALREADY. :D and my nuffnang check arrived today :D hehe so now i'm like $50 richer, this feeling is sooo awesome. continue clicking on my ads (if there's any) tyvm.
this is crazy, i feel even more tired after drinking my caramel frappe. i really have serious issues.

Lots of ♥, Cheryl

Tuesday, 6 July 2010

Monday, 5 July 2010

sitting at starbucks mugging with jw with my signature iced choc by my side -- happy final youth day all sec 4 poly go-ers, savor these last few moments and enjoy every second of it

Looking through np ib course again and it's crazy how much time I will have  to spend away from my family and friends in Singapore if I get in. First year, a week. Second year, a month. Final year, six months. Well it's a change I guess and as much as I say that i'll be able to survive it, who really knows? Dubai sounds like an interesting location to spend 6 months all though I really want to spend that time in ny :D 

Haha with all that being said, it all still boils back down to how I fare in my o's, no grades - no talk.

Argh, the brutal truth of life, alrightly I'm off to mug and (hopefully) get 5 points for my l1r2b2 for polyy

112 days to o's

Lots of ♥, Cheryl

savior king
Sunday, 4 July 2010

Let now the weak say I have strength
By the spirit of power that raised Christ from the dead
Let now the poor stand and confess
That my portion is Him and I'm more than blessed

Let now our hearts burn with a flame
A fire consuming all for your Son's holy name
And with the heavens we declare
You are our king

We love you Lord, we worship you
You are our God, you alone are good

Let now your church shine as the bride
That you saw in your heart as you offered up your life
Let now the lost be welcomed home
By the saved and redeemed those adopted as your own

Let now our hearts burn with a flame
A fire consuming all for your Son's holy name
And with the heavens we declare
You are our king

We love you Lord, we worship you
You are our God, you alone are good
You asked your Son to carry this
The heavy cross our weight of sin

I love you Lord, I worship you
Hope which was lost, now stands renewed
I give my life to honor this
The love of Christ, the savior king

Lots of ♥, Cheryl

great in all the earth
Friday, 2 July 2010


4 lessons before we ended school though we had math test and NSW english writing competition, but the day still went by pretty fast, changed out and headed down to AMKhub to get tickets for eclipse, it's super amazing how my own classmates and friends don't even recognize me when out of school attire and into going out clothes. you should totally see their faces when i say hi to them. haha i feel like i have a secret identity or smth :D
well, studied @ macs while waiting for huixiang to end her math olympiad training, before catching eclipse, movie was good, but think the book is better, but still not a bad movie at all.

so sad, cause other than today, my life is an utter bore.
tmr, studying @ starbucks
sunday, studying @ lnc (location not confirmed)
monday (youth day), studying @ starbacks (again.)
tuesday - friday, tests tests tests and more studying
then the cycle repeats itself.

nvm 115 more days to go.

Lots of ♥, Cheryl
