the most DIFFICULT book i ever find.. 舞狮技艺
DAMN! been going library for these few days. The idea of having the 1st week free seem impossible. On the 1st day of school, we already got plenty of work to do. We have 2 subjects this semester which are design studio 3a and research methodology. Here's my timetable.

Monday
9-12am Studio
1-5.30pm Research Methodology

Tuesday
9-12am Studio
1-5.30pm Design Studio 3a (K.Lee)

Wednesday
9-12am Studio
1-5.30pm Design Studio 3a (Alex)

Thursday
9-12am Studio
1-5.30pm Design Studio 3a (K.Lee & Suhan)

Friday
9-10.30am Design Thinking
10.30-12.00 Specialise Knowledge
1-5.30pm Studio

Studio is basically a time of our own to do our assignment. The style of learning here is different. We gotta do work in class. That's what the studio time is for. We got our very own table since there are only 16 of us in the class including 3 Malaysian (me, waili & another from New Era College), 2 indonesian, 1 swedish, 1 from China, 1 from Sri Lanka, 1 from Mexico and the other is Singaporean. Alex is a angmo lecturer. We heard that he is a strict lecturer and like Paul Moss (M'sian idol judge), he speaks whatever that comes to his mind. After his lecture on Tuesday, I find it difficult to understand his joke.. He also got the angmo style of praising people before he criticise. K.Lee or Kelly, this lecturer leave a better impression for students. A more fei lecturer. But I quite like the idea that he gave me which will lead to my topic today 'the most DIFFICULT book i ever find.. 舞狮技艺'. Just read on.. Among the 3 of them, Suhan is the "soi"iest lecturer who look down on limkokwing students. She left us with a very bad impression since the orientation. I guess everyone also don't like her. (Shouldnt say I guess, it's a fact!) Our research lecturer, Jacinta, hmm.. still dun really know her except that she is quite long winded.

Ok, back to the topic now. Today is the 2nd time I visit the National Library @ Bugis area. I am doing research on lion dance. It's not that difficult to find information if it's on those history, origin, style of the lion and ceremony. The critical part is what K.Lee asked me to do. I got to do research on the movement, formation and style of lion dancing. Although the idea seems to be quite interesting, but the process of information hunting is torturing. There are none related to that topic at Lasalle library. On net, there is only the name of the style without a clearer picture of what it is like exactly. When I finally found a book name 'The Dance of the Lion' in the database at national library, I went searching for the books and am not able to find it! When i asked the person in charge at the 8th floor (we were at the 8th floor which is a reference area for art n bussiness ), that person told me the book is at the rare book area at 11th floor which is a restricted/protected book and I need to send an email to get the approval to get the book. I decided to email to get the approval at 1st. But luckily, my 6th sense told me that I should go to the 11th floor and ask the person in charge there. And guess what, the person just ask me to fill in a form and write down the name of the book that I want and they will find it for me! Hmm.. excited since I will get to see, not excited since it may not contain the info I am looking at, but still felt lucky as I didnt listen to the 8th floor fellow. Hmm.. My sixth sense is right! It is really not the book i want!! it's a fiction!! really going to faith. Too many obstacle in the way of hunting for those information! Later, I asked the person in charge on the 11th floor regarding the information I need and she is real helpful. She helped me to search for the books regarding lion dance. Together, we search on all the things we can think of. There is some article on Straits Times paper that I could use but not really the thing that I want. We search here and there for quite long, then finally, we found a book in chinese named 舞狮技艺. (search on the database la!) It's on the 9th floor. Ok, here I goes again.. to the 9th floor and hunting for the book. When i finally found the book, I just glance through. Since it's almost 8pm by then. It is a book in traditional chinese wording. Going to loan the book!! Please please please let me to loan it! Not an easy task le.. still gotta translate it.

Wow.. too long winded liao.. Dun hav time to update u guys so often. Can spare some time for this blog now coz 2morrow got no proper class.. what i mean by no proper class is no design or the research class. Will be having ID induction and library research talk 2morrow morning. There will be a workshop induction in the afternoon. okok.. that's all for now.

Singapore River
It's already 23rd of July and our class will be starting tomorrow. Today is the last day for us to play hard.. and i guess later on should concentrate on study. Play hard and study hard. Yeah.. My motto.. haha.. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.. This idiom goes to me too.. hehe..
We went to Singapore River for a visit around 3 o'clock. We visited Raffles, the Merlion, Esplanade, Boat Quay and some places around Singapore River. Of course, we shoot a lot of photos. This time, a lot of imitation.. haha.. The vehicle no '11' is really useful here in Singapore. We walked alot today. Hmm.. not only today. Is EVERYDAY.

We ate an ice cream along the way. Yum yum.. mint flovor ice cream taste extremely delicious in such a hot weather. We ate our lunch at the food court outside our hostel before we push off to Singapore River. Or should said tea break. haha.. Slept till quite today. 11am.. I think the most geng person in sleeping is our Mongolian room mates, she slept earlier than us yesterday and today, when i woke up, she is still in bed.. really pei fu her.. As for our late dinner (or should call it supper?), we ate tuna sandwiches.

Oh, and this morning, I've been exploring the blog skin things.. Actually I've got a new blog skin already.. But then it's still under construction. So, I still didn't change my template. These CSS, HTML stuff really not my field.. Have been exploring for quite some times. It takes quite a while to understand and uses a lot of eyes power.. Maybe will need a spectacles soon if I keep on doing such things. Or contact lens perhaps.. hahaha.. Cant imagine myself wearing spectacles.. Hmm.. The only spec i wear is sunglasses!

A visit to East Coast Park
I've stayed in the hostel from yesterday (whole day) till today afternoon. We wanna go out but cant think of anywhere 2 go. We planned to go to JB today at 1st. In fact, we dun really hav anything 2 do there. So till the end, we decided not to go. We decided to go to East Coast Park instead. We got no idea how 2 get there, but it seems like not far away from the hostel. CK from the management office told us we could either take a bus no 197 or take a walk there. It will only takes 15 to 20 minutes.. n so, we walked there. Not far away, really.. at least better than the walk to Lasalle. haha.. It's a nice park with plenty of activities for all. Roller skating, cycling, bbq, swimming, jogging... n it is also a heaven for couples! Mostly youngster there. Either with friends or family. The park stretches along the coastline. We didn't get to c the whole park as our stomach din feel well n it's quite a big place. Not easy to find a washroom there! We gotta walked for so long before we finally see the washroom. N it's such a small one! We waited patiently 4 our turn.. Such a big park with such a small washroom! Maybe there is still some other washroom there but we dunno. Ai, my stomach still not feeling very good.. dunno wat makes our stomach felt this way! I still able to enjoy the breezy wind at tat sandy beach though. Can visit it more often when we are free as it is quite near. The water is not advisable to swim as there are quite alot of rubbish there :P Who say singapore is clean??

Orientation
This is the 1st time i participate in orientation. Nothing special about it. It started with a video presentation on the new campus. Following that is speech and briefing. We have a break around 11am where we looked around the college and fill in the 'get to know the campus contest'. While we were at the canteen to eat our lunch (drink the lemon tea n eat the chipmore they provide), there is the group stomp performance by the Faculty of Performing Arts.

Went back 2 ICA at 2 o'clock.. according to the fellow earlier, she asked us to wait for our no to be called.. we waited waited n waited.. n i asked another staff there.. she said will start calling us around half n hour.. their half n hour is extremely long.. after watching the Mr. Bean there.. i beh tahan liao.. went washroom.. n went back 2 c the no.. still not moving.. n then i went downstair.. look at their cafeteria n went to the ica gallery.. just glance through.. in no mood 2 study in detail.. then later went back 2 my seat n wait... still not my no.. after wat it seems like ages later.. i memang cannot tahan seating there liao.. so i ask the fellow at the counter.. the same fellow who did my thing earlier.. n this time.. she asked me 2 go back 2 my seat n will call me shortly.. ok.. n when my no is called... she told me tat we shouldnt wait for the no.. should go directly to the counter n ask whether our student pass is done.. weird! this is not wat she said earlier.. really frustrated.. after YEARS of waiting only told me this.. went out real fast after settle our student pass.. dun ever want to go to tat place again.. if can avoid it.. tat's y i said s'pore gov not efficient at all!!

when we reach there, there is a really really long queue there.. so we oso line up n wait for our turn.. it seems to me like ages later, we only manage to get into the auditorium.. n it's still not our turn yet.. just imagine standing outside for so long.. n it is so hot n stuffy out there.. wat they do is provide us with the mineral water only.. after tat only manage to go inside n still waiting.. but this time seating there.. waiting till my name is call. surrounded by sri lanka ppl at the place where i sit.. sri lanka girl bside me, sri lanka guy behind me, n in front a sri lanka guy also. then another side is a guy from nepal. then bside him is another guy from sri lanka.. it just took less than 1 minute to settle my thing.. they only photostate my passport!! waiting for so long just for tat.. n now.. gotta queue again at the next station, to get a signature to proof tat u pay!! real stupid.. after this, go n queue up again for photo taking session. photo for the student card.. after waiting waiting n still waiting, i m bore 2 dead n already in no mood for the photo.. so the end result for my student card's photo is ugly lo.. not satisfy.. they already shoot 2 times.. n still... after tat, went to get my in principle approval letter n proceed to the next station to get my student card.. then last stop to fill in the survey form. oh ya.. we oso go a place call DAA to collect the schedule for our course.. 5 days a week.. dunno wat the studio means oso.. got research methology, design n design thinking.. 5 days oso got class..
