Here's an advertisement brought to you by Mad Inc.:
"Yes! For folks who find themselves rolling in bed night after night, being unable to transport themselves in the world of dreams, have I got a place for you. Sign up as a NSF technician and you'll have a 3-month holiday at a beautiful resort hotel called OETI. What's so special about this place? Oh, you'll definitely thank it's existence. Other than the wonderful staff that entertains you, it has a special magical air about it. It's mystical powers to quickly induce anyone to sleep in mere minutes has been a world record that's both astounding and unbelievable. Tourists who keep coming back have proven time and time again that this magical aura is here to stay. So what are you waiting for?! Book a spot in this wonderful resort now!!!"
Ok, please do not take it so seriously, but yeah, you can guess what I'm talking about. Today's my first day in Ayer Rajah Camp, OETI, in months. I just LOVE that place!! Argh, if only I could be posted there!! Ok, fact from fiction: THERE'S NO MAGICAL AURA! BUT! That place drives me to sleep no matter where I am. Haha. It's amazing. I thought I'd get used to it, but generations of NSF there have testified, it is one helluva sleepyville. Not that it's stale and boring. It's just the way it is. (If it's ever torn down, I'm gonna establish an insomnia clinic there. I'd make millions!)
And by the "wonderful staff", I do mean it. The people there are just amazing and friendly. They've got years of experience and stories to amuse you, and are at any time, FRIENDLY. Mr Prem, one of my intructors back then, still remembers me. He's a crazy nut, cracking jokes with ease anytime. There's still more, but it's no use making this journal entry like the credits to a blockbuster movie. It's good to be back. It sure is. =)
I was just looking around in room today, and I realise how I've got quite a number of soft toys given to me by friends throughout the years. It's just amazing they're all still here. (I'm the God Of Losing Things.) Take a look.
Starting from left, a teddy bear I won as a prize in a lucky draw at ZHSS, some TY toy my sis bought, a gift from a fren, another one my sis bought for me, a TY from dunno who, another TY from anoynymous. Had no more space in my room, so I placed them on top of my cupboard. Haha. Quite old.
This is my current fave. Another gift from a special friend. Every time I look at it, it just looks so freaking cute la. Haha. Bought it for me cos said it look like me. Haha. Where got?! *bish* I dunno deny the cute part though. Y(^^,)>
This is one of my faves too. So called, my mascot! Haha. Well, I used to have a nickname U-Gui. (It means turtle in chinese.) Won't tell you the reason behind that nick.
Last but not least, cute no?! Haha. I love this one. Brings back lotsa memories. (^^,) I'll just leave it at that.
Quite a zoo eh? Haha. Thanks to the friends who gave things to remember. I always treasure everything you've given me. (PS: Daena, yes, that rock you gave me is still here. Oh, even the grass u took from ZHSS compound is still quite green. Haha. It's all here. Thanks for the most unique presents ever! I award you the trophy of Best And Fastest Birthday Presents ever!)
Ok, enough blogging. Time to get back to reality. Bye folks, and Selamat Hari Raya Haji. To the chinese folks out there, it's your time to enjoy. Hohoho.
