Packing

Its funny how when you leave for a place foreign, every item you fill your luggage seems to bring hefty nostalgia and unfound reminiscence as these thoughts weigh you down.


And when you bid goodbye and once again, attempting the same cycle, every item seems to weigh a little too prodigious in your grasp now; the simple mechanical movement of the arm seems dilatory with the rumination of memories.

This infallibly would be my last blog post in MC and I am uncertain whether I would be coming back in the near future. The friendships forged were undeniably unique from the ones back home, the process of breaking down the barrier of different nationalities with distinct cultural differences became made it special at heart. Not many would actually be able to live and interact with a plethora of nationalities (norweigians, germans, koreans, japanese and thai) at any the same given time.

Thank god for the invention of e-mail, the world definitely seems smaller with it.

It's time to start this all over again =)

Tian Jin


So last sunday I went Tian Jin with 5 Koreans, 2 Japanese, 2 Thais and 1 Australian/Singapore (chloe is kinda of lost as to which nationality she is).

We sat on some gorgeous train which cost us 10sgd to go there; the seats damn business-class man.

So without further-a-do here are the pictures!



Niang (thai) going crazy with cam-whoring.












Chloe (pink) and Yumi (blue) totally chilaxing


I forgot their names but they are koreans LOL. They arent in my class lar!










Mini (korean) sitting next to the window. I joke with her saying I am a large. No sexual connotations PLEASE.



Yumi and Yun Mei (korean) with hairband.










Hideous CCTV tower on the right



















































Chloe going mad with her winnie balloon.



Manami (jap) with her Lays apple chips.






























Posing with the 3SGD wind mill thing crap that yun mee bought for herself.













Lee mei li (korean) and chloe posing at a lavish restaurant at tianjin selling 狗不理包子。 which tasted like normal buns and we were ripped off - damn exhorbitant.
