didnt really think much of Tizzy Bac at first because of their cartoon-ish album cover, but after listening to the songs, I find the band really talented, and their lyrics sometimes have a deeper meaning. Their MVs are also quite amusing! i like these 2 MVs.
The MV of the song <铁之贝克> is super cute :D Haven't seen such a cute MV for a long time!
This is the MV of their 同名主打, <如果看见地狱, 我就不怕魔鬼>, which is also my favourite song of the album (:
如果看见地狱，我就不怕魔鬼 - Tizzy Bac
夜 深沉浓郁那么黑 我不敢闭上眼入睡 我的寂寞变成魔鬼 在床边 Then 我只好假装看不见 我只好假装有人陪 恐惧气味太明显 (太明显)
我不该有惧怕 这世界好大... 还有恒星仰望 宇宙可以信仰... 我在夜里破碎 天亮时憔悴 重复诅咒忧伤 "I don't love you, not even miss you, not anymore."
我不该穷紧张 这世界好大... 还有恒星仰望 宇宙可以信仰... 我不想又在夜里破碎 天亮时憔悴 就得重复这咒语 "I don't love you, not even miss you, not anymore."

heroes finale (:
stayed up to watch finale of heroes yesterday, and it turned out to be not as exciting as i expected, as there was a lack of action scenes, but at least it tied up several loose ends. i was quite neutral regarding the season 1 character they killed, but am quite sad that my favourite character, hiro, didnt get cured. that means he will be carrying the illness with him on to volume 5. seems like they are putting to a stop to all the time manipulation thing. i think the writers did mention before that time travel does mess up things quite alot, but i hope at least they will allow freezing of time.
generally, i was pleased with the finale, and they even set up the story nicely for volume 5, so im looking forward to an even more awesome season this coming september! but that's in 4 months' time... i think ill be suffering from heroes withdrawal symptoms pretty soon ):
on a side note, i realise the weeks have been whizzing by quite quickly. in a flash, my relief teaching stint in RJ is almost over... i really dread the day when i have to say goodbye to my classes ): how i wish i had hiro's power and can slow down time HAHA

seed of chucky!
just watched chucky 5 on channel 5. i followed the chucky series from 1-4, but missed the seed of chucky when it came out in the movies, and ive always wanted to watch it. turned out to be quite a lousy show, as compared to the previous instalments. the plot involving the new child was quite irrelevant, and the deaths were less gruesome (ok, i sound sadistic saying that, but that's the point of watching chucky shows right), so i was quite disappointed.
haha and since i resolved to finish marking my scripts before the day ended, i was multitasking and marking during the commercial breaks, and i finished marking the first tutorial tests which i administered :D i noticed, to my surprise, that the top scorers of all my 5 classes are all girls. which makes me wonder why there is only 1 j1 girl in the maths society. just a random thought haha.

ive just conducted my first ever tutorial test this week, and im in the process of marking the scripts! i think i have slightly over a hundred scripts to mark, but its really quite fun marking. in less than a day since i started, im now 90% done with my marking! so i should be able to finish really soon. i think what drives me to continue is to see some of the amusing answers which students write (sometimes due to stressful exam conditions). below is an excerpt of an answer which at least 3 different students produced:
ok i personally thought that was quite creative.
anyway, i managed to successfully stay up last night to watch survivor, and im so glad i did! it was probably the most awesome episode of this season of survivor! as much as i find tyson an interesting character, i think he was overly mean towards sierra, and he deserved to be blindsided last night. and the look on coach's face is priceless!
finally, we see some much awaited payback for the cockiness of the warrior alliance. all this while, ive been feeling that things have been quite unfair for sierra. right from day 1 she got ostracized, and was never really able to get into a strong alliance. and when she finally did, her only ally got voted off. and she didnt give up immediately when brendan left, which was quite admirable. she continued to fight to make a comeback, yet people around camp were just so mean to her and made snide comments. im just so happy that sierra was saved, and i really hope she goes against all odds and make it to the final 2 or 3 (:

council camp 09
went for council camp yesterday! its the last council camp ill get to visit in a few years, so i surely could not miss it. at first, there were only us 25ths around, but gradually, the 26ths and 27ths started streaming in. we were still commenting how we were the oldest around when the 24ths all dropped by together! it was nice catching up with my fellow councillors.
the council teachers have changed alot... only ms eva hor and ms kristine ong are left amongst our batch of council teachers. but ms hor is on sabbatical, so that leaves ms ong as the most senior council teacher around. she told us that our old council room is gone, and so were the furniture which we purchased. the new council room is in the estate room, and it is smaller than before, but still as messy. at least theres air con too, but doesnt seem as cosy as last time.
new council room!
darren and i went to look around our old council room, and noticed that the cubby holes are still around HAHA. we commented how amazing it was that those cubby holes are now empty, when it used to be an impossible feat to clear them. couldn't find any jives around though. wanted to look back at what kind of nonsense we used to write during our term haha...
we also looked at the programme for council camp, and commented how much slacker it is now than before. but then every batch of councillors would tell their juniors the same thing. and it is indeed true. the activities now are really much less physically demanding than before. and several highlights are gone, which is quite sad... they do not get to enjoy sunrise at the rooftop, nor do they get to do dragon boating anymore. i felt that those were 2 of the nicest highlights of council camp.
after that, the councillors all went off for buddy lunch. sadly, my 24th buddy is in australia, and one of my 26th buddy is busy while i was unable to contact the other. darren had somewhat the same situation as me, so in the end we crashed lizhan's buddy lunch. oh and i found my 28th, and gave her my no, but forgot to ask her to give me a miss call, so i didnt get to see my 29th after that when they met up.
after lunch, a few of us 25ths went for our karaoke session. charles was driving as usual, but he was fetching a few others home too, so we squeezed 5 people in the back seat. after dropping his buddies off, we headed for karaoke at charles' super zai clubhouse. we call it super zai because the cost is lower than kbox, yet the song list is more extensive than kbox!
as usual, wes would select all the li sheng jie songs, which are a real challenge to sing. i tried singing some new songs, but i think i failed horribly at zui xing fu de shi! i guess liang wen yin is just too good for me to sing her songs well. we also sang xia yi ge tian liang, and amelia and i agreed how well the little boy sang that song on campus superstar finals. so touching, almost comparable to guo jing's rendition!
one song which i liked alot was mayday's ru yan, which i posted in my previous entry. i realised there are no repetitions in the entire lyrics, and when u actually sing that song, you have a 感触良多 kind of feeling! i still like the rose part of the lyrics the best...
有没有那么一朵玫瑰 永远不凋谢 永远骄傲和完美 永远不妥协
oh and we sang the 12 minute leo ku song too! haha. i was so out of breath at the end of the 12 min, but it was fun! luckily this week there's tutorial test - thats one lesson down, so i wont have to speak that much. otherwise, i think my voice will surely be gone by the end of the week :D
on a side note, ive just heard gigi's new album, and i really like it!
its probably my 2nd most favourite album of the year (so far), after cheer's tai yang album.
recommended songs: ai de qi, cuo guo, li wu, abcdefGG

nice lyrics, but i didnt like the tune the first few times i heard it last year.
anyway, i went for a freshers mingle today for the cambridge freshers. got to meet a lot of my future college mates, and theres already one whos going to my same college and studying the same course as me. which is actually quite rare haha. also met a few of my juniors who are now my seniors haha. and they shared lots of interesting information about cambridge, so i cant wait for my term to begin :D

theres a number of new songs that are released recently! after the release of jolin's album, zhang zhi chen, xie an qi, charlene, dong li huo che and by2 have also released their new albums, and there are a couple of nice songs in their albums (: angela also has a new song for a chocolate ice cream ad (i think), and next week, we can expect soda green and vanness' new songs :D really looking forward to all these new songs! but for now, i am addicted to 2 new songs, which are vastly different in genre.
firstly, there's BY2's DNA! they have certainly improved in terms of dancing and singing techniques this time round. their vocals are still fairly average, but at least they are trying out new styles, and can at least do some rapping. and i dont really bother much about vocals for a dance song, so overall, im pleasantly surprised by BY2's first hit, DNA!
DNA - BY2
眼 还在偷瞄些什么 口在碎碎念什么 不能说的秘密还哽咽在喉咙 你的戏演的好弱 你的招术又好旧 So tell me baby what’re you waiting for? 早就该自首 早就应该知道情网恢恢疏而不漏的 强词了太多 没有用
the next song im going to recommend is xie an qi's huan song hui, which is a nice ballad. it was originally a cantonese song, but due to its high popularity, xie an qi decided to sing a mandarin version for her latest album! the lyrics are nice, and xie an qi's voice is very sincere, so i got addicted to this song the first time i heard it (:
haha... somehow i get addicted to songs which benita sing for her contest. thought she did fairly well on monday, but unfortunately, there were others who performed better, and so she did not succeed in getting herself revived. nevertheless, im very happy that jocelin is back! love her powerful rocker voice, and hope she will do well in the finals! anyway, happy april fools everyone! :D had a (thankfully) peaceful april fools day today :D
