Earworm: It Ends Tonight~~All American Rejects
Happy 21st my darling!
Since he doesn't have a blog to describe what his fabulous girlfriend planned for him, I shall do the shameless pimping of my own hard work =p
Went to Bugis to shop for stuff. I already made a list. For once, Im organised! Managed to get him a brown long sleeved collared shirt with stripes, a wallet from the Wallet Shop and 2 pairs of boxers from Deadfish. (translation needed lol) It's so bloody hard to find nice guys accessories and flip flops in Bugis that aren't overpriced!!! gah
And also I can't help trying on clothes myself too... haha.. there's just something about buying stuff for other ppl that makes you want to buy for yourself too. sigh.. the selfish me talking. I left hall at 3pm, stupid bus journey took one hour!!! and planned to come back by 6pm but somehow dragged til 8pm when i left Bugis... Kino's out of Frank Herbert's Dune. Ah well, he doesn't read much non-academic or computer-related stuff anyway.
NUS open house and rockfest.. whoo! Danced the zombie dance again to nobody in particular, then had Subway with rather awkward company, luckily Yen came to the rescue. and we headed to UCC for Rockfest. Terribly HOT weather these days! My period doesn't help with the excessive sweating. Grrr.. sweat glands are rather useless, especially those at the armpits.
Came just as Temasek finished. Heard their drummer pulled out last minute.diao. no backup meh? Then it was KEVII which was surprisingly good actually. They had a lot of rocker energy with synchronised jumping *which i found amusing after a while* and camaderie with bandmates and interaction with the audience although response was rather lukewarm. Cmon ppl, rockfest and everyone was sitting down on stone steps! And there was also this lead singer who can hold his breath while singing smooth criminal with falsetto and all. wow.
Sheares paled in comparison imho. They have vocals (though sometimes limited) and instrumental skills but the energy just wasnt there. Who sings 'Call Me When You're Sober' while standing still?? And who would talk cock about not being able to come up with a better name than the oh so original Sheares Band??
Eusoff was a refreshing change from the normal with remixes of Yellow and Chasing Cars. Also, Zombie alternating with Bring Me to Life. Last but not least, a new arrangement of Wherever You Will Go with fast and slow transition.
KRockers was a major letdown definitely. In fact, i'd go so much to say the first female singer sucked! Omg, how did she manage to get into band and not SF? Yen was commenting she was concentrating to hard on looking sexy and not singing. WTH. The male that took over was so-so.
Dinner was at PGP cafe with much gossiping hahaha
Had to rush around buying groceries and remaining gifts with nobody to help me carry coz everyone was busy with Open House. Wendy and LH came to clementi to have lunch but I asked them to go off first while i shopped. Didn't feel nice dragging Wendy around while I hunted for things. haha.
Lalala so I got three bags of groceries. Bandung, yoghurt drink and Baccardi don't come light! And a bag of flip flops and Watsons tissue. How to carry cake I tell you..arms going to break! Called terence for help but he was at SP rehearsal, but offered me a ride there later.
Actually saw Suyuen and her friend (jenna?) at the bus stop! At least someone to help me carry back Sheares... if i had known...
at 5pm went off to clementi again on Terence's bike. First time riding a motorbike-- like scary fun! Fun coz of the wind and speed, scary... well you know me, all the morbid thoughts in my head and imagining car banging us down, turning corners at too sharp an angle, falling off the bike and getting run over... lol. My perched limbs were stiffened with all these thoughts.
Thankfully, after getting a coffee cake from Bengawan Solo, the bus gods were pleased with me and blessed me with a 183 back hall!
Back hall though, there was not much time to do things other than putting stuff into the fridge coz I had Sheares Production to attend at 730pm. Rushed thru dinner and bathing (snatched Pit wei's cubicle away from her- sorry!) and we didn't manage to get on the early bus. Just nearly made it at UCC> ushers strict about closing door on time la.. The play was superrrr long (sounds so singlish haha) I didn't have such high expectations actually so definitely exceeded.. and this is not a backhanded compliment. I was quite impressed. I didn't like the starting fake french accents.. and i guess the actors had to put on some form of accent instead of the normal voice while playing their roles but it's odd when you hear the accents slip off to normal voices with a slight hint of singaporean accent. Christine or Don was the best in speaking though. It was like a dram-edy, drawing many laughs from audience but having its moments of suspense too. Like a hand jerking from underneath the couch! The play got draggy though, expected it to end by 10pm but instead it finished at 11pm! How to plan his bday??? Luckily I worked on some clues during the intermission.
We caught the last bus back to Sheares, and I was suffering from a headache and exhaustion at this point. Thanks Yen for helping me distribute the presents!
