GLOCCOVNAA is an abbreviation for 'Great Life of Conflict, Climax or Virtually Nothing At All'. That was the long and ridiculous name I came out for my blog when I was 18 years old. Do click on the colourful icons on the right to check out different types of posts in this blog.

Somebody tagged me...

I was taking a short break from my intensive studying this afternoon for my weekly blog hopping and saw that CheungHoe tagged me, so since I'm taking another long break, why not have some fun here?

Seven (7) Random Facts About Me!!!!!

1. I enjoy making videos with a *cheap* movie making software.
Windows Movie Maker 2.1

So far all videos I've made are products of WMM2.1, not because I don't have other more powerful professional-level softwares like Adobe Premiere Pro, but because I find that most functions in the user friendly WMM2.1 are more than sufficient for my usage. So for those who have been asking me what software I used for the Charity Visit video, all P110 Orientation videos and MHCV music videos, here is your answer.

2. I have Deuteranopia (green-red colour-blindness)
Have you ever been humiliated in art lessons when you were a child? There was one day when I was in standard 2, my art teacher asked every student to draw fruit trees with colour pencils on an art paper. After tracing the outlines of a mango tree, I took out my colour pencil case and started colouring my mango tree. But when the teacher was walking pass my seat, she asked me why my tree had dried brown leaves. My classmates all came to take a look at my dead mango tree drawing and laughed at me : ( But being colourblind didn't hurt very much except during pH testing and driving test.

3. I have Alliumphobia
Onion is one of the yuckiest thing on this planet. The weird part of me is that I enjoy dishes cooked with onion but I just don't eat onions *unless it was accidental or I was forced to*. The worst onion related problem I've faced in my life was when my mom cooked ONION SOUP for dinner as the only dish!!!

4. I have craze for 3 movie franchises, Star Trek, Star Wars and James Bond.
Star Trek was introduced by my father since I was a child when we watch ST:TNG, ST:DS9 and ST:Enterprise weekly and incorporated elements of the show in our daily conversation. I'm not like those fanatics who learn Klingon, but I know a decent amount to be part of The Big Bang Theory... lol
Was a Star Wars geek since I was form 3, just months before Revenge of the Sith was released. As a proof of my craze, I can say that I've watched episodes 1-6 over 10 times each! The weird part is that normal Star Trek and Star Wars fans don't like each other while I like both...
Had this craze since the start of form 4 before Casino Royale was released. The interesting part of this craze is that it was the reason I started making videos *my first youtube video is a tribute to 007*. I know enough to name every movie title and names of villains in every movie. Did you know the first on-screen James Bond was an American in 1954?

I'm a Buddhist
It is my birth religion and will remain the same till the day I die. I'm not currently active as an exco of IMU BS anymore, but I shall try my best to participate in their activities and propagation work.

6. My best non-human friend is 周公!

I can sleep all the time and almost everywhere you can think of. The only condition where I won't sleep comfortably is when I'm in a new place. But whenever I've got used to the place, I will not wake up....zzz

7. I have a short attention span
Picture speaks a thousand
So, I hope this allows you to delve into my somewhat messed by psyche a little further and I hope to be hearing from these people:

May Hwa, Amylene Yap, Shaun Chia, Jo Lene, Mun Yee, .

You've been officially TAGGED!

Uni-4-disaster week 11, 12 & 13 report

Oh crap! I delayed my blog posting!!! Oooooppppsss!!!

Lectures of week 11 and 12 are special because they totally fit the description of BPharm students who have been dreaming of time tables having big boxes with the term "PS" for private study. Week 11 has 3 days of lecture while week 12 has ONLY 2 DAYS OF LECTURE!!! There can only be two *silly* reasons for this:

  1. IMU has confidence that we are smart enough to study all those !@#$ing hard subjects on our own.
  2. IMU took our money and gave us this bull$h1+...
I'd rather stick with reason 1. lol

When I was in the Ehipassiko Camp, my mom SMS-ed me that she bought new watch to replace my previous cacat-ed watch. *I have only one BM word to say, Terharu* Then when I came home from the camp, my mom showed it to me and the first thing I said was "that looks really like the one my father has". My mom didn't take it the nice way until I continued to say "the one that I've always admired...". After that, continued having our dinner as usual.

The rest of week 11 and 12 are purely devoted to HP essay, with slight deviation to non-educational related activities (which will not be mentioned here). However week 13 has a new addition of lectures by a very nice and interesting lecturer Prof. Furman. To my surprise, his lectures are not lullaby-ish like other lecturers, with only very few exceptions. His lectures actually made my perception of Drugs & Disease DD change from Demoralising Details to Delicious Delicacies, but only during his lectures. Unfortunately we cannot escape the fact that DD is a difficult subject.

Current Status: Waiting for DD class test to meet me next Tuesday. Eye of the Tiger needed badly for this fight...

To Be Continued... duh!
