Yea and that’s basically it!

Most of the events I took up are sculpting events, such as birthday parties, shopping mall events or Dinner and Dance. Since balloon sculpting is charged at an hourly basis, I usually do not have the time to take photographs (unless there are not much people/kids around or when I decided to bring an assistant to the event).

Haha I still do have some photographs taken during my sculpting events and would probably post them up at my next balloon post.

Till then~ BYE.

H A N O I . DAYS 2 – 6

Hello, so it has been 5 months since I’ve updated because … I was damn lazy lah, cus if i have to update need to continue with the Hanoi Days ma, SO I WAS DREADING THIS (a lot photos need to filter out very mafan zzz).

Okay so now that the trip had ended (for 5 months rofl), i could say that i had really enjoyed the trip and i also enjoyed sleeping alone in that huge room with that huge bed heheh.

Alright so for this post, it would be on the days at our attached kindergarten –

Hoa Thuy Tien Kindergarten

So for the 11 days at Hanoi, we spent a total of 6 full days at the Hoa Thuy Tien Kindergarten (HTT). HTT is a kindergarten which caters to probably children from families with lower socio-economic status. As compared to the 2 other kindergartens which we had been to (on other days), HTT is undeniably the less developed one.

However, spending every day there for 6 days were really an eyeopener for me, i had learnt plenty of stuff AND i really felt loved by the teachers and staff over there. AND DID I MENTION THAT THE FOOD THERE WAS SO AWESOME?! LIKE FREAK MAN I THINK I GAINED LIKE 5KG AFTER THE TRIP CUS I WAS EATING AT LEAST 3 BOWLS OF RICE AT EVERY MEAL I AINT EVEN KIDDIN.

So basically at HTT, we were supposed to assess the learning corners of the classrooms which we were attached to (1 pair per classroom) and ways to improve on them, especially the literacy area. The objective was to improve the English literacy aspects for HTT. Other than this, we also have to conduct a teachers’ workshop for the staff at HTT on literacy.

So ma fan right. i know.

However, all the stress levels and annoyance disappeared IMMEDIATELY when we were welcomed to the school. I had no idea what the hell the staff at HTT were thinking because we were just some kids from NP AND WE CERTAINLY DO NOT DESERVE SUCH GRAND WELCOMING FROM THEM. Almost all of the people, PEOPLE including kids, were in red and white. Why? CUS SINGAPORE FLAG RED AND WHITE. Ohmygod. And the banners and decorations placed around the Kindergarten were just … wow. And the teachers and kids were just so loving and nice.

We were basically superstars.

After all the wowz and boomz moments and photo taking sessions, Megan and I walked up to our classroom, escorted by the kids and teachers hahaha.

Anyway here are the (influx of) photos!

Ok i think that’s it for the days at HTT.

Actually got a lot of stuff which happened but i aint gonna share it wahhahaha.

K bye, gonna upload another post on the rest of the days soon ahhaha.

H A N O I . D A Y 1

Didn’t really sleep much cus i was kinda nervous going to Hanoi (Vietnam) for 11 days.

I guess the reason for being THAT nervous was because … I am the only guy going along with 21 other girls (including lecturers). Yeah so basically I would be without a buddy and a room mate. I was kinda afraid and to be honest, relatively upset because I thought that it was only appropriate for the organisers of this trip to at least bring over 2 guys, or none at all.

Anyway, Dad drove me to the airport and I reached at around 7am (meeting time, i wasn’t late!). Yupppp met up with the rest of the peeps and checked in our baggage lo. Had MacBreakfast before boarding the flight!

Anyway, it had been quite long since i’ve taken SQ. And wooohooooo there was a damn screen in front of me and I watched Divergent during the flight! The food provided wasn’t too bad also, had some chicken thingy with roasted potatoes, a bread roll, a packet of crackers and a chocolate mousse!

IMG_1087

Divergent! 

IMG_1088

Chicken thingy.

IMG_1079

Wasn’t really excited for this trip x:

Finally reached Hanoi and it was FREAKING warm. The tour agent brought us to some dining place for lunch and he said that it was actually opened by a fellow Singaporean. The food wasn’t that nice but it wasn’t that bad either hahaha (best description ever I should totally write food reviews).

After that, we were supposed to check-in to our hotel room first before going to Hoa Thuy Tien(HTT) Kindergarten. However, we were behind time (cus the plane was delayed) and sooooo, we went to the kindergarten first. I was kinda upset because it was really warm and i was sweating a lot AND I WANT TO GO HOTEL CHANGE MY SHIRT. Also I want to see how my room is going to look like (tour agent said that there is going to be a bathtub wtf!). 

Anyway, HTT Kindergarten was kinda cool hahaha. Was feeling kinda upset so i didn’t have the mood to take pictures lol. BUTTT i saw this craftwork WHICH IS SUPER NICE LA.

IMG_1092

IMG_1091

So nice right the hearts!! It’s actually really simple but idk why i was damn OHMYGODITSSUPERNICEICANTEVEN when i saw them. Hahaha.

Had a short briefing (and it was pretty boring so i shall not elaborate on it) and was told again that we were going off to the hotel after HTT Kindergarten. BUT NOOOO, the bus was late because of the jam and in the end we went to have dinner first. I was disappointed because i really wanted to go to the hotel (arghhh!!).

BUT… dinner was… just… absolutely…

AMAZINGGGGGGG.

Ok i’m probably overreacting but i can say that the dishes were all almost PERFECT. Because EVERY SINGLE DISH ARE MY FAVOURITES.

There were EGG OMELETTE (ohmygod), FRIED FISH, SOME SOTONG THING BUT IT WAS DAMN NICE (usually dont eat sotongs), Kangkong (usually dont eat vegetables), Egg tofu, some Jellyfish thingy (i dont actually like this), AND LIKE THIS INCREDIBLE CARROT SOUP.

Ok the soup TO BE HONEST was not THAT nice but it was WAY better than expected so i was damn surprised. It tasted DAMN NICE.

IMG_1205 IMG_1207

I think there were still other dishes which i forgotten but meh im sleepy.

So after dinner, we went to check-in to our hotel (LIKE FINALLY).

AND I WAS DAMN HAPPY WITH THE WAIT.

I WAS SO UPSET

SO DISAPPOINTED

SO MOODY

BECAUSE OUR SCHEDULE CHANGED LIKE 3 TIMES WHEN I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO GOING TO THE HOTEL.

AND FINALLY

IT’S HERE.

OR RATHER,

IM HERE.

Love my hotel room so much.

Short B A L L O O N update

So its the holidays (as mentioned previously)!

And holidays meant money BECAUSE THERE’S NO SCHOOL AND I GET TO GO FOR EVENTS YAY (and money will come in la).

Spent quite a lot last semester due to the course specialisation track i was in zzz. I think i spent more than $200 for the project works lor (luckily can claim most of it BUT HAVEN’T CLAIM YET).

So back to topic, went to quite a few events last few weeks!

Mostly are for Balloon Sculpting (hourly basis) so no time to take photographs ah. Ahahha.

Here’s a Blue and White Balloon Arch for a kid’s birthday party! Did it with help from Timothy.

And was trying out on some superheroes twisting on a random day.

Spiderman, Hulk and a whale (wtf LOL)

Learnt the Superheroes Balloon Twisting from a guy called MrBomas on youtube! I used a 5inch/12inch round for the head though cus i didn’t really like the loop twist for a head.

Whale design was  by Ms Lily Tan (Copied from her instagram photo LOL)

PS: Please ignore all the weird stuff on the floor such as my very wonderful foot, a purple  hairdryer and the random receipt LOL

And here’s a solo shot of me HOLDING ACACIA.

I was … erm kinda frightened to hold Acacia cus i’ve never held a baby before. AND I WAS FREAKING OUT LA. But the feeling was kinda nice. Like a small little warm thingy sleeping on my arms hahaa.

Maybe one day I’ll learn not to be afraid of babies.

FUN FUN FUN FUN LOOKING FORWARD TO THE WEEKEND

Ok I know it’s a stupid title ahahha.

Went for an overnight stay at Coasta Sands Resort @ Sentosa with some of the CCA mates!

-Day1-

Met up with Guoen, Theodora and Sinyin at Vivo first to buy some of the BBQ materials on the second day. Supposedly meet at 1pm but… erm ‘someone’ late for one hour la ah. So I thought they would buy the stuff first and I’ll just help them carry over to Sentosa. In the end they waited for me till 2pm to buy the materials LOL. Guilty much.

We only bought drinks, cup noodles and some BBQ stuff like tongs and aluminium foil (lol so little) cus they said that the fridge could not fit the BBQ food haha (and 4 people cannot so many things ah somemore we have charcoal also). So we leftttttt and off we went to Sentosa!

We walked to Sentosa cus of the freaking expensive train ticket (wtf $4 just to enter go die pls) and took the train from inside Sentosa which would just cost us $1. *Only needa pay $1 for entering Sentosa, taking train from inside FREE ONE 😉 *

We actually took about 1.5 hours to reach the resort cus it was soooooo far inside and it was damn secluded.

Yup so we unpacked everything and started to play games LOL. Played mini mahjong and dice while waiting for Sihui, Huierm and Jiarong to come (with our dinner)!

So finally they came (at like 9pm ohgod) and we ate la duh.

Then we played mahjong and dice again AND i guess we were making a lot of noise until the guard came knocking on our door.

So this is the part WHY COASTA SANDS RESORT AT SENTOSA SUCKS.

Apparently the walls are not soundproof. What the fuck! People go there and have fun one your walls not soundproof. Imagine some couples book your room and have sex or sth and their neighbours can hear them clearly. What shit man. Oh and also one room only can have maximum 4 people staying overnight. The rest are considered ‘guests’ and must leave the premises by 11pm. What the fuck man so when the guard came knocking we asked those unregistered ones to hide in the toilet lo. LOL like some illegal immigrant. Ya so basically we were all damn upset about this cus i dont think there were such rules over at Downtown East.

So we had to play quietly for the rest of the night hahahah.

IMG_0668 IMG_0667

Sinyin, ME, Daryl, Guoen, Theodora WHILE PLAYING DICE

-Day2-

So after playing for the whole night, we went to Mac and had breakfast!

Ya then went back, slack for awhile and went to Vivo to buy the BBQ food!

This time we smart already, we took the free shuttle service from Coasta Sands to Vivo and the same way back.

IMG_0663

Bus ride selfie w/ Sihui and Theodora!

Prepare prepare mahjong mahjong and before we knew it, it’s time to BBQ~

Oh and it’s the first time I BBQ as in, do the charcoal fire stuff and cooking the thingy (usually is people serve me one ah LOL). And well i learnt a lot of stuff from Huierm HAHA.

THE IMPORTANT THING IS THE CHARCOAL, CANNOT TOO SMALL, CANNOT BE SHATTERED INTO TINY PIECES, MUST BE BIGBIG SO CAN BURN SLOWLY.

And our charcoal kinda suck. They were all broken into small pieces so our fire keep running out. Luckily the people using the pit beside us finished BBQing already and we asked them for their charcoal LOL.


IMG_0665 IMG_0664

Ok i think i look terrible (jk i look awesome as always).

So yaaaaaaaaaaa i went home after the BBQ after slacking around which was around 2am while the rest went to watch a movie or something. Too tired to join ah and i kinda miss my bed (and donkey).

ok it’s 3:47am now and i have to get up early for some CCA stuff so BYE.

Snapchat fun // Unglam moments

Yeah so this post is all about Snapchat and unglam moments (Obviously the title says it all)

Yah so now im gonna paotoh all my screenshots from snapchats.

DIE PEOPLE DIE oh and got me also so should be okay right.

By the way,

I’m not strange… or creepy… or weird… ok.

So first up we have GUURPREET!

Knew her since year1 practicum (although different class for first and second year), i thought she was quite sane but i was wrong.

AHHAHAHAHAHHAHA (please don’t kill me)

IMG_0519 IMG_0518 IMG_0517

(oops please ignore that instagram notification LOL)IMG_0507 IMG_0459 IMG_0452 IMG_0388 IMG_0387 IMG_0431 IMG_0320 IMG_0352 IMG_0520

So from these pictures, i guess it’s safe that Guurpreet is….

an owl-like Shrek with purple hair. She sleeps at 2am that’s why she puke and vomits blood a lot. She is also a judgemental bear who likes to watch movie and eats cheesecake. Oh and she has a friend called Pig.

*talented story writer*

Ok i think i have SSed a lot of Guurpreet’s one because hers is really funny LOL, that’s why got a lot.

SO here are all the other random ones, featuring Ashely, Rachel, Amalina and Insyirah 😡
