Rules are real simple:

1. Put your music player on shuffle.
2. Press forward for each question.
3. Use the song title as the answer to the question even if it doesn't make sense. NO CHEATING!

On homework-less Sunday nights

I love homework-less Sunday nights.

Why is that, Az?

Because, I get to kick (or shoot) Chimeran ass with my Danish Azri. Maybe he rocks because of the second part of his name.

So, what's a Chimera, you ask? Why, it's something that looks like this.

Resistance: Fall of Man

On a Playstation 3.



Too bad Mondays are school days. Stupid Mondays.

Nah, no postly thingy in this post.

Harry Potter and the Deadly Halos

Harry Potter has made his final stand in bookstores everywhere.

And Master Chief shall finish the fight this coming September.

Take your stand.

Augmented soldiers who have humanity's fate resting upon their shoulders have a tendency of totally owning wand-waving overaged wizards hands down.

The girl who fills my mind with serotonin

This post is about a girl. To me she means the world. And she makes my mind whirl.

Hey, that rhymed!

Now to leave all of you with a cliffhanger end-of-the-post, here's this post's...

Postly riddle/quickie/fun fact/quest

Serotonin in the brain has similar chemical patterns (or properties, I'm not too sure) to something else that causes Obsessive-Compulsive-Disorder. And that basically hints that serotonin might be the chemical that causes you to always have a picture of the guy/girl you like in your head.

So the statement "You flood my mind with serotonin." just means "I can't stop thinking about you."

Just a pick-up line for you nerds.

And you're not gonna get any information of my love life here.

And POP goes the weasel

No, this post has nothing to do with weasels exploding (although that would be cool).

This is about something bigger. And better. It's about the most anticipated event for the Part C's of the TK Sea unit - PASSING OUT PARADE.

I know it sounds like it, but it has nothing to do with fainting, or lightheadedness stated in the post below. It's about the Part D's stepping down after serving four years in the Corps and passing down their responsibilities to us for our exploitation until our POP.

Enough about that. More onto the recipients of the posts.

Company Sergeant Major: Radyamansyah
Assistant Sergeant Major: Justin
Head Of Training: Joshua
Head of Admin: Kai Wei
Part A Platoon Sergeants: Jasper, Daniel, Timothy
Part B Platoon Sergeants: Wafiy, Clayton, Imran
Part A `08 Platoon Sergeants: Elyasa', Khairul, Azri, Brandon Ng
Part A Physical Training Instructors: Khairul, Azri
Part B Physical Training Instructors: Brandon Ng, Rashid

As for the assistant admins and quartermaster(s), forgot who got them.

So, yeah. I'm the PS for the sec ones next year and the PTI for the sec ones this year. And to think I hate kids.

As I get to rest easily while typing this post out, my platoonmates are busy slogging themselves away under the hot sun of Changi Beach. Thank God I'm not kayaking.

Postly riddle/quickie/fun fact/quest

I bet you didn't know that people who have just fallen in love have a higher level of a protein molecule known as the nerve growth factor (NGF) than singles or people engaged in long-term relationships.

Thanks, Wikipedia!

It's weird how new teachers can already know so much about their students' love lives (like who's chasing who, which school XXXX's girl/boyfriend is in).

Our day to shine...or faint

Yesterday was the much anticipated NCC Day Parade.

Picture taken by Aman and his phone. Model is me.

It was pretty awesome. One thing I got to experience that day was the feeling of almost fainting. I suddenly felt short of breath at first, then I started to see purple dots in my vision. After that, I experienced tunnel vision. Then my vision went all black/purple and I had to squat down. I actually didn't mind fainting but if I did, the bayonet would stab me smack on my stomach, so I had to squat down. Luckily it was just the rehearsal, not the actual parade.

That's why one should NEVER skip breakfast and stand for an hour under the sun with a cap that's so tight in cuts into your skull.

And then it was lunchtime. Lunch wasn't so good (it's NCC after all) but Khairul, Wafiy and I saw something really cool. Won't elaborate here.

Then we slacked in the bunk for a looooong time before the next rehearsal started.

This time I wore my peak cap really loosely, so no fainting here. Then it was teabreak, which was followed by another looooong break before dinner. The dinner was western, so needless to say, I finished mine (except for the onions). Then we had to suit up for the parade.

And I got a super-shiny golden badge. Man, AKE badge rocks asses.

And then it was time for the parade. We were all taking photos with friends and our respective teacher officers. The sun was setting, and that's when the awesome picture above was taken. I have another version, of Aman and Kai Wei, but I shan't take my glory away by putting them up here.

At the parade, I saw my parents. They were waving at me (maybe they didn't know I couldn't adjust?). And then in the middle of the parade, my head started to ache again and I started to regret telling myself to wear my cap tightly and nicely for the actual parade, but I held on, and I survived, without getting any shortness of breath or blur vision.

And as soon as it all began, it ended.

Sadly, we had to depart with our No. 1 uniforms after the parade. A moment of silence for that, dear readers.


And then took train home with the fellow Guards of Honour, Flag-bearers, members of the Supporting Contingent, Suhaila (Aman was there) and my arch enemy who's also my best friend, Amir (or Amigatron or Anything...long story).

And then I was asleep on my bed.

I didn't want anything to mess up this post, so no Postly riddle/quickie/fun fact/quest for this post.

Celebrating the youth while it lasts

What's up y'all?

This weekend has been a pretty awesome one, first reason being that there was Youth Day on Monday, meaning another free day. Second reason being the fact that there was ABSOLUTELY NO HOMEWORK for that weekend.

Which, obviously, rocked.

My Friday started off with me being the slow, slooooow flag raiser for the school flag. But it was still cool because I wasn't the only flag raiser who screwed up that day.

The piano lesson for that day was better than usual mainly because I got to learn the first 'full' part of Think of Me from Phantom of the Opera (yes, Amirul, POTO). And, well, it's a nice and easy-enough-to-play song.

After that I got to watch Transformers with the family. Effects were awesome, the cars were sexy, the female protagonist was sexy and the fact that there were robots fighting each other was awesome (some boy instincts never die).

My Saturday was fully spent with GOH (that's Guard of Honour) training and after that I got to go to the match thingaling in the National Stadium and then sorta tailed a certain someone with a certain girl. Wish I could elaborate on that but I can't. My lips are sealed. Reached home at 12 and got to have a nice sleep before...

...the next morning, which I spent in religious class. After that I just rot at home before going to a weekly neighbourly/family-ey/religious-ey gathering, which was fun, because I got to play Resistance: Fall of Man on my neighbour's PS3 (yes, I live 20 seconds away from a PS3).

Then the next morning was pretty boring but the lunch was awesome. $20 (I think) for a buffet. I don't think they would've suspected a person like me to come along. I got ONE black pepper crab, TWO bowls of sharksfin soup, many glasses of iced lemon tea, two lil' cheesecake cubes and (check this out) FOUR black pepper steaks. Yes, four. 4.

Then watched Surf's Up with two of the sisters and well, it was kinda nice. Jokes were funny and they way they made the whole thing look like a documentary was pretty cool. But, like most 3D movies, it was cheesey, which is an okay thing. I wouldn't wanna watch a bunch of penguins doing stuff that I won't understand now, would I?

Yeah, that's all I could remember.

So, time for...

Postly riddle/quickie/fun fact/quest

Both movies that I watched in the past few days starred Shia LeBouf. Betcha didn't know that.
