I'm back!!!

Hi ppl!!! Sooo SORRY!!! My internet was down for a month ma. What to do? Plus i was super buzy dono doing what. Oh, btw, big news!!! I'm not in Nottingham anymore!!! I'm in IMU!!! But still doing Pharmacy and still going to UK. Now i'll twin to Strathclyde in Scotland. Brr!!! Will be freezing there!!! Cuz IMU cheaper ma, and UK system is student-centered, as in we have to do more self-study. Whereas in Nottingham its more teacher-centered. So its good that i come here and get used to it 1st before i go there and make a mess of my studies since i'm so utterly lazy and find it very hard to pick up a textbook. I better start training from now. Of cuz there;s the addded bonus of my sweetheart being here as well!!! My orientation was o...k... Had a lot of dress ups. My orientation group was called Shh...SECRET!!! Yes, that's the name, not me wanting to keep it a secret. It's group 9 btw. The 1st nite was Heroes Vs Villians. I was part of the Matrix Duo. 2nd nite was Mtv Remix Nite. We had to do a dance using the

"We can do it, we can do it, we can help our Cindereli, we can make her dress so pretty, there's nothing to it really. We'll tie a bow around her, and put some ribbons to it. She'll be dancing at the ball and be more beautiful than all with the dress we make for Cinderelli. Hurry hurry hurry hurry make the dress for Cindereli. Cut it with this scissors. And I'll do the sewing. Leave the sewing to the women, you go get the ___! And we'll make a lovely dress for Cindereli. Ho!!! Make a lovely dress for Cindereli... Follow me gus gus. We go get beady beady. Hohohohoho!!! Cindereli be surprised!!! Surprise surprise for Cindereli."

or something close to that song and Kelly Rowlands Like This. So we did a short play with the Cinderella song and a dance for the other song. Me and Melissa kind of cheographed the dance. With the help of the other group members and our (orientation officers)OOs too of cuz!!! Hehe!!! I was the Stepmother. Yes, we had to dress up as characters from Cinderella too.

The 3rd nite was Mix and Match i think. I was Cruella De Vil with my cotton-wool-pasted-on-paper-then-stapled-onto-lab-coat fur coat. Hehe!!! The 4th nite was Project Runway Malaysia. We had to create 2 oufits from rags for a guy and a girl to model. I modeled together with our group leader, Whelan. Oh, and we had a play about the dress after that. This time, I surprised myself. Never in my life have i ever thought that i would actually agree to act like a monkey (yes yes, u can laugh as loud as u want wilson, shamus, bob and all those ppl who alwiz call me gorilla)on stage. Haha. I did!!! I swear!!! It was so hilarious to me. The story goes like this...

One day, deep in the jungle, a monkey (which was Whelan) found a wishing well. He had no coins to throw in so he used a plastic bottle (recycle!!!). He wished for a wive. 5 days later, he was tryin to get a banana from a banana tree(duh!!! from mango tree meh?) but he couldn't get it. (This is where i come in) A female monkey approached and watched him for awhile. Then she when to the tree and jumped and snatched the banana of the tree and then went off to eat it. The monkey was impressed and liked her. He copied her actions and got the other banana and offered it to her. At 1st she didn't seem interested but when she saw him offering the banana she quickly grabbed it and ate it. Then he tried to flirt with her. She didn't respond for awhile, only interested in her banana. But after awhile she flirted back and they decided to get married. So they went to find the jungle's tailors, the Snake(Sin Wei) and the Lion(Atun), to ask them to make their wedding clothes. And so they did. On their wedding day, a gorilla priest was there to witness it and the tailors came to gown them in their wedding clothes. All of a sudden, they transformed into humans. The gorrilla priest was confused. They marveled at their new bodies and stared at each other. Then they decided to go and get married properly. The End.

Ok,ok i agree that the story is funny and a little weird. But overall i think the judges liked it cuz it was so amusing. The rest of the group members were the singers and sang "In the jungle, the mighty jungle, a lion sleep tonite..." We acted as monkeys with a cardboard monkey face on our foreheads and i wore a jacket over my 'wedding dress' and he wore the pants without the vest which is his 'wedding clothes'. So when they gowned us they just actually took off my jacket and put on his vest.

The 5th nite was Egyptian nite and i was cleopatra. I LOVE this costume. Hehe. Ok, mayb minus the puffy mahjong paper skirt.

Devi(MC for the orientation and now my mentor) : Why this country no money a? Use paper to make skirt.
Me : Cuz here very hot ma, so must use paper. Cooler!!!
Devi : O!!! Very smart a this country's ppl. Wah!!! This cleopatra got a lot of bling-bling(my belly dancin belt has lots of gold coins ma) a!!
Me : Of cuz la!! Queen ma.
Devi : Eh, since u'r the queen of this country can u show us your country's dance a?
Me : Can!! *panics a little cuz i forgot wat dance they hv then rmbs the snake dancers* *proceeds to do her best at belly dancing and the snake thing(u know, turn 1 side and make an s shape with ur hands and shake shake then turn to the other side and do the same thing)*

Haha. Then before going off stage the judges asked me...

Judge : Eh, cleopatra, since u got no king(we didn't have someone dressed as king tut) means u'r single la rite?
Me : Who say i got no king?
Judge : He's not here oso.
Me : He's at home ma. U think running the country very free wan meh?
Judge : Ow.... 1-0!!!(which means I win!! Hurray!!!)

Haha!!! Funny rite? Oh, on the 1st nite we had treasure hunt. We got there 1st!!! BUT we did not get the treasure... Oh well... There was Detective Game on the 3rd nite and Telematch on the 5th nite but i didn't go. There was also signature hunt through out the whole orientation. We had to get signatures from seniors, grandseniors, ppl from other courses, lecturers, staff... The seniors would give us tasks to do and only if we finish them will they sign for us. And they don't only give 1, they gives tons!!! Ok, well some of them. There was a lot of cross dressing through out the whole orientation. Well, the orientation president(Ray-he's from Taylor's and was the LEO president there so I knew him cuz i was the temp treasurer) and the other MC(Jeffrey-he reli looked lk a hot chick when he cross dressed i tell u) crossed dress themselves, so what do u expect?

Kla, i have to go to class ad. Hehe!!! My baby dear is beside me. So nice!!! Continue my story later la!!! Ciao!!!
