Well, it's not really because I'm too lazy to write anything, but it's more like because I have nothing much to write about these days. I am still on a long holiday, waiting for college which starts in August. The camps and such are in July though. I went for the university health examination, and the results are fine so far. Deep down I kinda knew it was going to be alright like almost everyone else, but I am such a silly hypochondriac at times . It got me really anxious the days before the examination.
With that being said, I am both looking forward to, and NOT looking forward to college life. I mean, I am excited about studying in dentistry school. Making new friends, learning about new interesting stuff, doing lab and practical work, putting myself in a dentist's shoes, etc . But at the same time, it means that I will have to let go of this carefree, relaxed life. I keep waking up so lately almost everyday, spending most of it watching TV, surfing the net and such. Once or twice a week I also went out with friends and had LOTS of fun. I also went back to my highschool to tutor 1-2 juniors privately.
Well obviously I have to let go of it eventually . Going to school is much much more important to secure a better future. So I guess I will just learn to treasure every moment I have left in taking a rest. Because I know dentistry school is going to be really stressful and hectic. But then again, I'm sure it will be worth it!
Now for less serious talk...
A couple of friends and I went out the whole day yesterday. We visited the Harry Potter exhibition which is currently open here. It was such a great event! Movie props, costumes, interactive stuff. Not to mention the AMAZING souvenir shop at the end . I bought Bertie Bott's every flavour beans, a Ravenclaw shirt and Ravenclaw tie! It was quite worth it, really. The tie looks passable for formal events, and the shirt looks like an ordinary casual t-shirt with the harry potter touch. But the beans... well... okay some flavors were fine. But the vomit flavor literally tastes like vomit, and it made me threw it out immediately .
Anyway, the exhibition was held in Singapore's ArtScience Museum. It's this amazing flower shaped building. It's so bizarre but cool looking that I find it hard to believe it's a stable structure!

Notice the beautiful helix bridge next to it ? There are small lights on the floor representing the DNA bases. Though one or two of the nitrogenous base pairings are wrong . This is what you get from being a biology student lol. Of course I'm not seriously criticising it though. As for that amazing museum, they often had lots of exhibition. I went to the Titanic exhibition at the same place a few months ago. It was great too.
We also spent the day walking around the spectacular city area, with such a great view of the skyscrapers and the marina bay sands.

We ended up on top of the sky terrace of Esplanade after a wonderful Thai dinner. Esplanade is this cool looking performing arts center that looks like two durian fruits:

The view was amazing! We were just in time for the laser show which could be seen quite clearly from the rooftop. Oh and we had ice creams for desserts!
But today, I ended up having a slight upset stomach and diarrhea , probably due to the spicy Thai food I had yesterday. My stomach seems to be really sensitive when it comes to spicy food... Though the Thai green curry fried rice was really good!
I think that's all I want to say for now. I may have forgotten some things here and there. But meh.0 Thanks, 0 Likes
