Am Right Hemisphere Dominant!

Heh, I mean, the brain and not planet Earth... anyway, I find it eeriely accurate, unlike Emode's fun but just for fun tests. Although I think the word 'slightly' for disorganized is a sinful understatement. Any hoo...

============

Auditory : 50%
Visual : 50%
Left : 33%
Right : 66%

Gianne, you are moderately right-hemisphere dominant and have even preferences between auditory and visual processing, traits that might make people perceive you as "slightly off balance."
You are most likely to be slightly disorganized, a "dreamer" and a person who focuses more on the end result than the immediate task at hand. You are creative and spontaneous if somewhat lacking in direction and focus. You are a learner who is generally patient and a person for whom time is an ally, not an enemy.
You are more passionate than most people with regard to life and learning and recognize your own intuitive abilities. You have sufficient goal-direction to satisfy yourself and guarantee success without being or feeling driven. You are willing to be reflective about yourself and others without getting lost in rumination.
The balance of your sensory modes allows for both learning and expressive capabilities achieved by few. You are active and "seeing" while retaining an equally strong propensity for being reflective which slows you down a little but allows for a more comprehensive perception and analysis of situations and problems. You do not spend excessive time analyzing since you mostly trust your perceptions.
In all likelihood, you have a tendency to overcommit and cannot under- stand why others get upset since you operate on a different "time table" than they do. Your organizational abilities are frequently overwhelmed by the stimulation seeking and active nature of your mind as well as by the tendency to create new categories and gloss over details, making categorization and classification almost impossible at times.
To the extent that your career path allows for creativity and abstraction as well as a bit of disorganization, you should find yourself equipped to handle any learning that is required. Your own personal adjustment to your style should come naturally although you are likely to feel frus- trated by your own limited discipline and often wonder "Why?"

Two Weeks in One

Alrite, this was supposed to be posted about a week back, but er..er... i'm such a lazy pig hippo. Well, last week was the school holidays and it's now over *sob!* Actually I planned to study 24/7, but all I managed to achieve was getting myself addicted to the internet. I just can't seem to drag myself away from it, as if a strong magnets of opposite ends. Hmmm, I thinkit was mainly because I'm trying to design a cover for my school magazine, just to try my luck... All seems to turn out crappy. If you want to see AKA ke-po-chi / 5+3, here's the links to a few of the satisfactory ones.

Original | Re-Touched = the HAND! *gasp*
Original | Re-Touched = Crop Circles? *alien shakes head*
[the two above is not done yet...]
Original = did this for fun, not for magazine

I've posted them at this forum where everyone is going, "Oh, it's a good attempt...". OOOHHHH, detest the word attempt now. Yes, do agree design aint professional enough, but no point beating around the bush about how they hate it. However, they are kind enough to give me tips on how professional stuff looks like and me do appreciate it. Am really in the donkey situation now though. Trying to please people everywhere, meaning. Ready to give up liau, as really suck in symbolism, and prefer scenes like the seaside, forest, etc. Furthermore, love colours but am tied down by school's traditional two-colour cover (blue and black, like getting a shiner). LOL, didnt not know that last year and did this. Well, it looked better in my noodles/brain, yet i suppose it's close enough, based on my skills. Am still in high school, forgive me.

============

Ah, back to social life, lol. Last week,on Tuesday, I went with my happy 'family' to Sunway Pyramids.... Happy 'family' meaning my schoolmates ; Mun Ling ('Supreme Nanny'), Sze Jun (my 'niece'), May Hwa (also my 'niece') and Puvi ('Nanny'). Am Aunty G! LOL. Anyway, they are all from the same class and a lot of peeps from their class were there too, methinks it's their class gathering. Oh what the heck, was not the only alien there, lol. So first thing we did was MAKAN! Ate at McD's and had the Finding Nemo ValueMeal [however, now wished I had ordered a Happy Meal, 'cause there would be Finding Nemo talking toysin it, EEE!]. We went ice-skating next, and it was hilarious. [But, Puvi didnt skate] I mean, yes, have gone a couple of times, so knew how to do so, but it's my friends' first time on it. They fell a couple of times, which is typical, but they deserve a cheer for braving the ice! Hip hip HURRAH! For first timers, they're pretty good. Compared to my first trip to ice-skating rink anyway... one step, PLOP!, one step, PLOP! Other than that, the boys were extremely funny. Not trying to put them down or anything, but they are really sticking to the sides. One time, my friend and i were skating towards this friend of ours, KW, who was standing still and not moving, and when he saw us he said," ...Don't touch me...". We almost pissed ourselves laughing and almost fell. Hah, balasan... Finally after two hours of skating, we decided to stop. Our feets hurt like crap, because for two hours, we've been wearing ill-fitting skates that are two sizes smaller than the size of our feet. It was really tight (doh.) We didnt feel it while skating though, and walking and massaging feet cures the aches. After we were all out from the rink, we headed for the sticker booth and had humongous fun doing poses and changing the background curtains etc. The result? Well, here's our favourite, the DOKI-DOKI! (anyone who knows the meaning,please tell me, lol)

from left: may hwa, me, mun ling and sze jun

haha, a quote from mun ling about this, "overgrown babies learning to walk on ice."

The next day, on Wednesday, went out with PY and 4 of her friends, which includes Amelia. They had looked extremely familiar, and I wondered why. Turns out, had met them before, in form 3, when I hung out with PY at this Hari Kantin in VI. Then we watched FINDING NEMO! Truth to be told, when I first heard of this movie, I didn't pay attention to it... what's so fun about some stupid fish that got separated from his overprotective father? But rave reviews made me rethink. And now I am in LOVE with that movie, and it's more than a stupid fish, but contains strong msgs. Here you laugh and cry and be awed by the amazing graphics. I daren't tell my fave parts, cuz some who would view this blog might not have seen it. dont wanna spoil it, lol. My fave character is Dory though, and i bought some cereal just because they had a Dory toy that can swim, LOL. HappyMeals, coming next! Their Dory toy speaks whale-language!!! My friend has the HappyMeals's Dory toy and one day at 3am, she was half-asleep when suddenly the toy started whale-talking. Scared the shit out of her, lol. Anyway, those who hadn't seen the movie, GO SEE IT.

One more thing, why does Disney always kill one parent or both off? Hmmm...

After the show, PY and I went jalan-jalan in KLCC and her friends went the other way. We walked and talked and window-shopped. Then we took a rest by ordering drinks and resting tired feet. PY order some drink starting with the letter 'C' and it was damn SOUR. it's like *sip* =screw up face= *gulp*=screw up face and bang fist on table=. It would prolly be nice for pregnant ladies then...

Ah, that's my week for you. In school, nothing much has happened, other than getting back our exam papers. I think I've done pretty well... unfortunately, teachers thought I cheated(HARUMPH!). Pretty funny actually... i mean, when i get low marks, i get glares for not scoring in their exams, but when i scored, they said i cheated. Yet i could not blame them, because firstly, i never studied for exams, but this one was an exception. Secondly, schools around KL got the same paper set by some Jabatan and they're really stupid in the sense that the timetable for the exams are different for each school. So those school who had done certain papers first, would hand the questions to those who hadn't sit for the exam yet. Tada, memorize and basically just xerox.

Besides that, myclass must be really terrible to our maths teacher, because she brought in someone to shake some sense into us. And of all people she had to complain to, she chose our principal, who is famous for her long and repeated (same points over and over again) speeches. Actually it's about the homework, we dont hand it up on time... So those who did their homework had to suffer too. Hmmm... now Maths teacher has new ammunition : "Keep quiet or else!" And knowing what the "else" would be, and not wanting to sacrifice another recess for the "else's" cheong-hei-ness, we just do as she says. Used to like that teacher; shy and teaches. But she was front-stabbing us, and the whole scene is pretty corny and as if out from the book. Part of me says "she has a reason to do so! how a teacher suffers!" and another "yet as a human, she should try talking to the class first and most prolly we would understand what she is going through". Some of the students who did the h/w felt hurt and pissed of course. She ought to pull the wrong-doers aside and tell them off instead of what she did.
Ai, in the middle, as a human and a student, two diff opinions.

current obsession: design...school...mag....design...school...mag....

excuse my procrastination

Before I begin, I would like to extend my apologies to visitors to my blog. *AHEM*

Firstly, you have experienced the famous habit of moi. Procastination. Speaking of which, once my mom got so pissed off at this inborn talent of mine, and sentenced me to write the word(sorry for the bad pun) 'procastination' around 1000-10,000 times. That was three years back, and I never got to even getting out a paper. The irony of the whole thing! -lol-
Secondly, for the fruity appearance of blog... resembles a watermelon, doesn't it? I pointed it out to my dad, and he was embarassed. Yousee, my brother and I has uncovered the greatest archeology find ever in the Yap household... parents' old photographs! There's this one where he was decked out in a red shirt and green bell-bottomed pants. And I'm talking NEON BRIGHT! Haha, come to think of it, the inability to match colours has been passed down (or up,we're never sure)! Ah, I wonder if MY next kin will hoot and laugh like little hyena brats once they see my teen fashion. Oh my god, dont even let me get started on how stupid I look sometimes. Not that I know it at that time,because it can be so fun dressing up and experimenting. Sometimes I look back in pictures and I think, that's ME. Pure me. This is what I had liked before. Though I laugh and blush, I love these memories. Wish I could visit my 15 year old self, show her the picture, laugh hysterically, then come back to this year. What shall I do if I see another me? I think I might beat the hell out of erm,me. Er. Drop this. I'm getting confused... if I cant understand what the hell I'm talking, neither could you. Anyway,had the hippie phase (beads, head band, hemp stuff, name it), 'sexy' phase and currently crazy and colourful phase.

Erm. Done with apologies. LOL.

Back to current life, it's holidays now, and had received one leaked exam score [LKJ]by a friend ofmine. Don't worry, I will not disclose your name, right, Lean Chiew? Mwahhaahha.
I didn't know that last year was such a fun year for me. Maybe it's due to the fact that it's 'honeymoon' year, fun classmates, getting to know big ears and so on. Haha, hobbit sent me our past chat transcript, and there were some forgotten F4 experiences:

There was this lil Girl Guide who followed me around the school compound for a hour after school and I didnt even know, until she came up and asked for my signature to confirm my... activities. Included in the list, a damn long list at that too, because I was restless that day and because someone let my airplane go (er, cantonese term 'fong ngo ge fei kei'). Anyway, you should see the list, which includes: "Jalan sana sini. Berfikir. Duduk di koridor. Minum air water-cooler. Menari. Menyanyi. Melompat-lompat." Hilarious I tell you.Then as I signed to confirm it (it's some initiation to join girl guide:follow someone), I told her, "You know, I walked a lot..." and she replied with a straight face, "I know."

And loads more. Or the time, after waiting for four hours for my dad to come home for dinner, my mom got fed up for reminding him (he goes "will be back in a hour." and "coming coming" and still not sight of him for hours.and the food my mom cooked was getting all cold and we have to wait for him to eat together), and told me to call and scold him instead (all of us at home were very p/o). Moreover, he refused to answer all calls from home. So I marched over to the phone, pressed the redial button and the moment the person on the next line answered(ahah! he answered!), I unleased the pissed-offness. "DAD! We've been waiting for you for FOUR hours, and the food is all cold. If you cant come home on time, then dont keep us waiting! It was 4 when we called you, and you said you're near the house! Now it's 8pm, and there is no sight of you! We're all sitting around the table like dungus, watching the food, not eating, waiting for ur arrival!" And on and on I went. Finally I stopped. Then a scared reply came: "Uh.What dinner? What home?" Anyway, turns out that my bro had called his friend after my mom called my dad. I turned white and slammed down the phone and went, "Oh. SHIT." Well, the good thing that came out of this was that when my mom and bro heard what happened, the whole moody and angry mood vanished and soon we were all rolling on the floor laughing. Then my bro's friend sms-ed him. My bro explained, with me saying sorry, sorry in the background and still laughing. And a direct quote from his friend, "Hak gao sei ngo..." (Scared the shit outta me). Anyway, it's a blessing in disguise, because if it was really my dad, he would had whalloped me once he got home. Horrible tempers should be controlled.

Ah. BTW, tried painting the other day. This is the result.
