Hi my name is Grace and I like to read, write + fashion/graphic design and I abhor veggies + twitbuggers. I'm from EPPS/SHPS/NYGH/ISB (yes, I know, extensive) and I take Spanish as a third language! I really love Broadway *and* Taylor Swift. And random stuff like the soundtrack of the movie Once.

Poker Face

I have this really weird habit of just randomly waving my cursor around links, because the hover html makes them look so pretty :D

Just read Sher's blog: I REALIZED I FORGOT TO ADD PENN BADGLEY TO MY WISHLIST! *big crime* ALSO I forgot to add that I want to watch Hannah Montana: The Movie. Haha I sound so sixth graderish :D I MUST BE THE ONLY EIGHTH GRADER WHO STILL LIKES HM. ROFL.

Going to see Tata's blog now.

In Las Estrellas Yo Puedo Ver Tus Ojos

The title means: In the stars I can see your eyes

When I asked you how you're doing I meant I missed you more than I've ever missed anyone else before.

Briefly checked out two blogshops -INVOGUE BKK IS DYING! NOOO!- but was disappointed. Hate those blogshops whose collections sound promising but only end up having, like, 3 items, with blurry shots.

Getting Confirmed today! Had a huge bout of low self-esteem yesterday when I tried out my outfit. The dress makes me look really old and frumpy; my mother says it's just the cut (A-line), colour (off-white) and material (Thai silk). Grah! After the Confirmation we're planning to have it altered so I can wear it not just for formal occasions. Currently thinking of making it a sleeveless, high-waist shift. It will still look old, I think, but it's the most we can do without chopping everything up.

Went to MBK yesterday and came back with feet super sore! (They still hurt. LOL.) Let's calculate the expenses:
  1. Blue cardigan, UFO, 345 Baht
  2. Blue dress, Divi Diva, 299 Baht
  3. Brown wedge flip-flops, 199 Baht
  4. White pashmina-scarf, 3 for 500 Baht (so that makes it about 167 Baht)
  5. Off-white skirt, 199 Baht

I *think* that's all I bought... so let's see... 1209 Baht spent. Oops!!!!! (I think the exchange rate is about 23.03, so that's about 52.50 SGD spent. ECK!) Good thing is, I haven't shopped for aeons, so if I don't shop for another weekend or something, maybe the cost will be spread out. If you get my convoluted logic.

Going to edit my Volverte blogskin now to put it here. [For this skin and Volverte, go to TAC.]

Tu Solo En Mi Fotografias Estas

In case you were wondering, the title means 'You're only in my photographs'. It's from my all-new favourite song of all time, Fotografia by Juanes ft. Nelly Furtado. It's in Spanish and you can search for the MV on www.lomastv.com (meaning 'the best TV' in Spanish).

Breaking news:

Sad thing is, contrary to my thinking when I was applying, I can't do both yearbook and journalism. So I chose journalism. I can still apply for yearbook in Grade 10, but of course now I'm still confused as to which one was the better choice.

Going to do a blogskin. Need to (a) study for Spanish and (b) put Big Spender by Adrienne Bailon on my thumbdrive 'cos tomorrow Nimarta and I are going to edit our videos.

Would Be A Lie

I have decided that I cannot be the next Taylor Swift; as much as I'd love to (1) learn the guitar and be a total pro at it and (2) write songs, I can only write the lyrics. I have zero creativity at writing tunes. Anyway, here's a little song I wrote. [No rhythm whatsoever, but who cares, right?]

I’m sitting with you on the porch
You’re telling me about your day
I look at you and think of how
Life would be so perfect, if you only
Saw me in a different way
If I were to write you a love song
I would tell you oh-oh
Your eyes are like the stars in the sky
And your smile is like the sunrise
And to say that you’re not the only thing
I think about each day- it would be a lie
She calls you on your phone
You say, ‘Excuse me, I gotta go’
After you leave I sit and think of how
Life would be so perfect, if you only
Opened your eyes and know...

What do you think? :D

I think I just spent an hour or something checking e-mail, getting irritated and Googling a red striped dress instead of doing my Spanish crossword like I promised. (Didn't help that I had 11 emails in my inbox.)

Was very irritated just now. Simmering down.

Okay. Need to go do crossword now. Vocab's getting harder and harder; impossible to believe I used to have a 97 in Spanish.


How could I forget????

Raise Your Hopeful Voice

Continuing where I left off...

...Revised for ch 11 test and Humanities, then went home, turned on AC and watched Princess of Thieves starring a 15 y/o Keira Knightley who was as pretty as ever, and a totally hot Froderick. Irritating thing was, she abandoned Froderick -this cowardly guy whom she's been friends with for 8 years- for this stupid smug I'm-so-brave prince Phillip. Darn. But wanting to do icons for them anyway.

Did Humanities quiz, don't think K has uploaded scores yet but pretty sure I did ok. Probably failed the bonus ? though. Had no idea what 1/2 the flags were.
Did ch 11 test, got 97%. Did science presentation and TOTALLY FAILED. Everyone was on me for the you-didn't-explain-this-?-enough thing. Finally decided that the quiz wouldn't go up on powerschool so everyone was happy.
Me: You owe me 180 Baht.
Noah: I do not! I gave you ten baht.
Me: Look, Noah, THERE, you signed. 180 Baht.
Noah: Give me an A+ first! Then I'll pay you.
Me: It's not going on Powerschool.
Noah: Give me an A+!
Noah: Oh. Right. *walks away*


In PD 3 Yearbook Ms Ulster said aren't we supposed to go HS elections? ('we' being jacob, andrew, michael perry and I). the guys didn't know and I thought it was pd4, so we completed pd3 and I went off happily to pd4 GLOBAL STUDIES, where naturally nobody was there and mrs. pine-petthong was like, it's supposed to start at 1:40, don't worry! then I said I should check it out, so I ran out, met michael (who'd went to MPB and stumbled upon choir people who asked him what the hell he was doing there) and the both of us ran to the chevron, where we entered quietly from the back (his idea) and found jacob and andrew hiding at the back too. so the four of us sat there throughout the second half of sophie's (YAY SOPHIE) speech. then when it ended we all crept downstairs.

turns out we missed 98% of the whole thing anyway, including this andy guy who was supposedly very amusing. so I ended up voting for all the girls on the list since I had no idea who they were anyway. AND SOPHIE :D :D :D

weird conversation during YB:
[me looking on facebook at dance pics from tata, jacob walking in]
me: duh that was me. sandwich, remember? [inside joke.]
jacob (backing away) that was a GOOD holy crap. a GOOD holy crap.
me: oh. just like the good 'you're so short', then?
jacob: OH SHUT UP. (turns away.)
HAHAHAHA *cough*guys*cough* *shakes head*

still feeling a little woozy and headachey. need to go to people's fbs and tell them to bring hoops for hearts money tomorrow, it's the last day for collection!!!

How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You





Lots of updates!!

First off, I had an inspiration for this awesome blogskin, but problem was it came during school time so naturally by the time I got home I forgot what it was.

Dance. Was. Kind of. Not worth 700 Baht.

Don't get me wrong, it was fun, but only for the first half. Then after a while I got depressed and bored. And listened to sad songs like When She Loved Me all the way home.

Plus points:
+ NINO ASKED JOYCE TO SLOW DANCE. They look really cute together (:

Minus points:
- Not saying.

Went to 9.45 mass, where we ran a little late but it was OK (the homily was soooo long! I kind of lost the point. oops). Then went to Shangri La Shang Palace with Joseph Teo for lunch. Sadly, he didn't really like the private room we were given and bawled most of the time.

Dropped mum off for her dental (HAHAHAHAHARETAINERSHAHAHAHAHA), then went to sway-chick's house and gobbled up my latest TEEN VOGUE (SELENA GOMEZ ROCKS :D) and sway-sim's People. (kristen stewart's bf is cute.)

oops, SHE is here. more later.

X That Out

OK, this time, you've gone too far. You may think you mean well and don't want to insult anyone, but watch your words. You may say that you're not like other people. You may not like what I do in my free time, but YOU DON'T HAVE TO SAY IT. You don't have to say how lame and boring what I do is. Because you know what? By insulting what I do, you insult me. And that proves that you don't really know what you're doing. Did you know that?

I'm so sorry. I HAD to write it. I'm just very angry right now. And that's not very good because we're leaving soon for dinner at uncle luke's place and I don't want to arrive there looking like someone on fire.

I'll come running,

Should've Thought Twice Before Letting It All Go

Currently addicted to Should've Said No. Downloading it now.


Okay. Next.

TOMORROW'S THE DANCE! lalalala. haven't even decided on accessories- something which is totally unlike me. {I mean, I don't think anyone else plans their outfits for NORMAL SCHOOL DAYS on the previous nights. Right?}


Okay, I now know someone who is more excited/anxious about it than I am.

Am officially in love with this skin. Most of the time my skins are cliched and not that good, but occasionally I do actually get inspiration and even more rarely do I love the resultant skin. This is one of them.

I Don't Know You But I Want To

Am addicted to Kris Allen's Falling Slowly.It's currently playing on repeat and pretty soon, it'll probably #1 on my Top 27 or whatever.

This afternoon, walking to the school bus, I suddenly realized how I must look like to a stranger: a pink fanatic. That's right, me, one of those girls where everything has to be pink. You see, my backpack is pink, and so's my water bottle, which sticks out of the side pocket; my pencil case is purple and my sneakers are purple and pink. Wow. Pink isn't my favourite colour; it isn't even my second! (That's white and blue respectively. Followed by red, if you're interested.)


Found out my Anna poem is circulating round. My mum nagged me to send it to all my uncles, my godmother and my parents, then today she showed it to Auntie Jess and she's going to show it to Sway Sim soon. Oh no. I was telling her, soon you'll be emailing Penguin and Random House demanding for it to be published! Wow, I'll be in Guiness Book of Records under Author of Thinnest Book Ever. Or Biggest Scam: 999-Page Book With 1 Page Of Text!!

Want to do a simple skin to put here. I'm beginning to find the word-cramming here a bit headache-causing. {Wait, I WANT a headache, like Tata, so I can lie in the Nurse office all PE resting, instead of planning volleyball coach sessions that don't work out anyway because our team has zero team spirit.}

Bad Girl

Today was actually a horrible day, but miraculously after re-reading Bazaar, a snippet of Psalm's and taking a nice calming bath the day got better. Then my mum agreed to take me to see Joseph, which of course was a kind of calming process in itself. He is SO CUTE! (Though his poop is not. I don't see how mums can like, wipe poop off babies' butts without flinching, when it is all icky. I am not going to say anything else, TMI! :X)

I actually have only 11-5 to do for tomorrow! Isn't that so awesome??

AND tomorrow we have no PE. Though on Thurs we do. I have to convince myself to give my best and smile even when I miss and some people laugh. Even when I make a complete fool of myself in front of everyone. *prods self* Okay, I need to cheer up.


(Napoleon from Animal Farm is not counted. JK.)

My Top 10 Hottest Male Characters in Books
Names in italics are the characters' names, following which comes the author's name and, maybe, a little comment.

  2. Gilbert Blythe, L.M. Montgomery {eeee!!!}
  3. Romain Verney, Eva Ibbotson {too old, though}
  4. Quinton Somerville, Eva Ibbotson {ditto}
  5. Luke Brandon, Sophie Kinsella {though he was cuter in the movie than in the books}
  6. Edward Cullen, Stephenie Meyer {you knew he was going to come up!!}
  7. Charlie, Plum Sykes {I'm so sorry, his surname is never really mentioned much}
  8. Zach, Meg Cabot {just 'met' him today! eep!}
  9. Jesse de Silva, Meg Cabot {EEEEEEP!}
  10. Cooper Cartwright, Meg Cabot {the not-so-real Orlando Bloom, if I'm making any sense}

EEP. So everyone except Cooper and Edward were chosen for their sweetness. Yep. PLEASE DO THIS TOO SO I CAN COMPARE :D:D:D:D haha.

Everything You Need

I am betting that I will have read more books than Sher! :D haha but I cheat since I already did this twice. THIS TIME I PROMISE NOT TO BOLD THOSE THAT I HAVE NOT REALLY READ. (inc. watching Disney adaptions/reading simplified versions.) then I can see how much I have REALLY read.

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.

I Didn't Say Half The Things I Wanted To

E.G. what the heck was Hayden thinking???? Normally I'd cut the actors/actresses a little more slack for their fashion faux pas-es, but this time I fully agree with GFY. Either don't wear that dress, dear H.P., or don't wear the pants underneath 'em!!!! ): It was a total waste of that gorgeous summery dress.

Going to work on my Hey Stephen navigational blogskin now, then do some Harry Potter icons from the site I stumbled upon: http://www.celebuzz.com/harry-potter-half-blood-prince-s103651. (I also freely admit to sneaking a peek at the behind-the-scenes pics. ;D)

Little Did I Know

FB is deliberately lagging on me.

I've calmed down. Too lazy to type what happened here. Am wearing tailored dress for dance. Will try to alter it. Not too happy considering there's the perfect dress waiting in Robinson's, but better than nothing. Will go do... something. BS if inspiration; if not, icons.

When the world is falling
And grief reigns
Is it okay to laugh
And smile?

When the clouds open
And the storm starts
Is it okay to laugh
And smile?

When grief comes
And knocks on your door
Must I be swallowed
by darkness?

God, open up my mind
Help me see the light
When a death is announced
Is it okay to try and live?

I pray that she finds her way
To Your garden, God
That we may join her some day
In Your paradise

But for now we must remain
So in our hearts she'll stay
Please, God, show me the way
Through the storm to the rainbow

When we are here
And she is there-
Is it okay to laugh
And smile?

My brain's not working, but I do hope that somewhere, God hears my poem. My baby cousin Anna Sim died this morning when I was on the school bus. She had an extra chromosome. (If I'm not wrong, it's #13- very rare.) Most babies with her condition don't last 2.5 days, but with God's grace she lived to see about 6.5 days. Thank you, God.

Please pray for Anna. I didn't get the chance to see her when she was a baby, let alone watch her grow up like I saw my other cousins do. I just wish that I could have been there. I know she was a brilliant and strong girl to have made it through so long.

And now I'm confused... When something so hard as death hits you, all the books and movies can tell you that the expected thing to do is cry and be sad. But is that the right thing? Is it a crime if somebody says something funny and you laugh?

I'll come running,

All This Time I Was Wasting Hoping You Would Come Around

Everybody knows what you want
They've been watching you since the first day
And now everybody knows you can't have it
You can just hear what they're gonna say, hey hey hey

Just a random poem-song thing I wrote. Can you imagine how it feels, for everybody to know what you've been thirsting for- only for something bad to happen, and suddenly everybody also knows that you can't have it?

And you got to share some secrets, and I'm tired of being last to know, oh

GTG. Tuition.

Place your iTunes on shuffle and take the first 25 songs you get. Post a lyric from each of the songs and get your friends to guess the song and artist/e. No cheating with lyric searches.
Then tag others.

Ching Ying: IT'S 25, DUFUS, NOT 20! ;D lazybones.
Anyway, I'll do 20 too. COS I DON'T HAVE TIME. My mum just yelled to remind me so.

  1. One more day all on my own/One more day with him not caring
  2. I took a chance/I took a shot
  3. Sometimes you reach what's realest by making believe
  4. 'Cos it's too late to escape/Might as well face it
  5. Chasing love when nothing's there/Here I go just making the same mistake
  6. Won't you share a part of a weary heart that has lived a million lives?
  7. Don't say you dream of my face/You don't like me, you just like the chase
  8. You're here in my heart [DEAD GIVEAWAY!! YOU KNOW THIS!!]
  9. Can't somebody take me home, hahaheeheehahaho
  10. Nobody ever made me feel this way
  11. If you're lost, you can look and you will find me
  12. Ignorant fool! this brave young suitor, sharing in my triumph! [Tata...]
  13. Through the summer and the fall/We had each other, that was all
  14. And I can't feel anything anymore/I need your touch to remind me I'm still real
  15. Want to see you move your body
  16. Boy I like having fun
  17. All your life you'll dream of this lovely, lovely night
  18. And I said, Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
  19. And must I face the truth alone?/Is this the end of all I've known?
  20. Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime [Tata...]

There. GTG!!!!

I’ve had all that I can take
I'm not about to break

Are you happy now?

Loving that song! Except there's almost no official version for it, excluding live versions (which I hate because of the applause and everything, and rude people talking near the camera) and the music video (which has this funny beginning). Hoping I can find an OK version to download.

Want to create a new blogskin for this blog but it rained heavily last night and just now so my mother says I'd better bathe before the electricity goes off again, just like it sometimes does with heavy rain.


Went to CentralWorld, arrived at 11. Nimarta and Nimanee arrived at 11.15 and Tata at 11.30. Mita'd decided she didn't want to come after all, which was a major disappoitment. Went to Info to ask about studios but apparently there ARE NO STUDIOS at CentralWorld, except for this family thing where you have to dress like Japanese and we didn't really want to do that.
So we ate fries at McD (lol cute abbrieviation, huh? ;D), walked around and ate lunch at this really cool place called Pizza Pizza on lvl 6. I've never been there before but the pizza was quite good! Really large, though. Felt sooo full after that.
Then walked around some more. Managed to find Ten & Co. by some miracle (because CW is so big and Ten & Co. is tucked away in a teeeny corner on lvl 2) and by another miracle it was having a SALE! So Nimarta, Tata and I bought stuff. Me*: a blue peasant top, a neon pink thin belt and a black tee for Mother's Day. Nimarta: a pink peasant top, matching mine. Tata: a polo tee? I think so.
Then we walked around some more, stumbled into -speak of the devil!- F at Forever 21, where F was looking at 1000-baht dresses and telling us that they were not bad and we should try them (*cough* yes, on a nearly-300-baht budget, tell me how?), quickly escaped to ZARA where sadly it was very depressing because even the tank tops were expensive.
Then we ate ice cream at DQ. Then went home.
Well, not really home...
*Nimarta, I'm so sorry, but after we'd all left my dad decided he wanted to get a stamp on my receipt for a discount on the parking price, so he let me go back to Ten & Co. and I decided to buy that pink top after all. Same as you. Hope we don't wear it on the same Alternate Dress Day!! Also bought gorgeous pink-red skinny jeans.

The retreat for CCD.
REALLY INSPIRATIONAL QUOTE, Matthew 4: 13-16. Recommended it to Thomas for catechism but he says they use it all the time for rite of something- the one after confirmation (oops, I forgot XD). It says something about all of us being the salt of the earth and the light of the world and that we shouldn't hide that light, we should SHINE :D just like Stephen in Hey Stephen (oh, whatEVS).

got kind of grumpy after that, though, because (a) I really wanted to go Platinum for some destressing but my dad wouldn't let me, and (b) some people had been really infuriating at the retreat even though, *reminds myself* I AM TRYING TO BE A MORE GRACEFUL PERSON WHO DOESN'T GOSSIP AND TALK BAD BEHIND PEOPLE'S BACKS EVEN IF THEY'RE NOT VERY NICE. Ahem. So I shall start. (That was my penance yesterday, and I already broke it when I left. I MUST TRY HARDER!!!!) (Even my thoughts kind of violate that.)

so went emporium, cos we needed to buy those anti-fungi thing for my boots, as well as some more socks. the special kind that look like they're made of pantyhose material or whatever, except they're shaped like ballet shoes or something, and you just slip them on. they're much thinner (and much more break-able D: ) than real socks, but they're the only ones that fit with my sneakers and *boots* :D.

also grudgingly bought magenta-plum-y tights. which are so awesome. and when I got home and tried them on it it cheered me right up because I looked so much like an elf in them. (New elf outfit: yellow Zara top, purple tights, brown fringe boots, crazy expression.) Got my dad to take a picture of me posing on the bench near the door, will post it to FB as my display pic once I actually download it :D

last CCD class! boohoo*cough*

got really mad here too because I hate it when people take one look at Asians, and they think, English is not their first language and they can't understand us, hahahaha. It's really sad because hello? We can so read better than many of you. Take that. I'm sorry. I'M VIOLATING MY PROMISE AGAIN!!!!! I am such a bad person, really.

went to emporium to buy bread, girlfriend (purely unintentional but it looked really promising and it is NOT a fluffy magazine, seriously, it actually has cool articles about stuff like The Edward Effect, which I am clearly suffering from), roses for mum (haha sneaky sneaky- she was so surprised when my dad turned up with them) and takeaway lunch for mum and dad (I had kfc leftovers!! :D).

then went home to eat, slack, do a bit of homework and 4 GG icons. following which we went to bumrungrad hospital (which I cheerily dub the bum hospital, pardon my French ;D). GOT MY RETAINERS!! NO MORE BRACES!! I SOUND LIKE A BANANA!! THEY FEEL FUNNY!! I half wish I had my braces back because they're so much more comfortable, but it's worth it to actually see my teeth again after more than a year of separation (;

Then went to the eye specialist to check about my sty (it's a thing in the eye, by the way, not the thing pigs muck around in, thank you very much). He said that if I chose to go for an operation, it would be around 10 minutes and there's a 2% chance of it ever coming back. AKA, the operation would be 98%-likely to be permanent, no scars. awesome. we're planning to have it done over the summer. nervous!! but also happy knowing it won't be back. (besides, then when I go back to NY mrs. wong won't keep asking me why my left eye still looks funny. I remember getting a little tired of telling her I can't help it.)

now blogging cos I've finished all homework due mon & tues. still got 11-2 and lab report for wednesday. uh oh ): kind of looking forward to lab report though, strange as it sounds. it's kind of fun ;D if confusing at times.

I know I am being contradictory!!! anyway off to do icons then bathe. quick icons. quick.

I'll come running,

You Used To Call Me Baby

Baby- Ally Heman

your glare feels like the heat of the arizona sun
it makes me want to get up, turn my back, and run
my skin just crawls, when i am anywhere near you
i guess i'm just confused.. i'm thinking lies are truths
when i know you better
i should know better
better than the broken heart love letter
i feel like i don't know you
let alone myself

i don't know who i am anymore
since you walked out on me
i forgot about the person that
i'm supposed to be
i hate the feel of remembering the feel
of when you called me baby
i know this can't be
this could not possibly be real
you used to call me baby

i still remember how you pushed your lips to mine
i can't forget it you drove me out of my mind
you made me feel, like i was flying like a bird
i really trusted you.. i believed your every word
but i was better
i loved you better
better than the way you used to let her
it's like i never knew you
cuz i don't know myself

i don't know who i am anymore
since you walked out on me
i forgot about the person that
i'm supposed to be
i hate the feel of remembering the feel
of when you called me baby
i know this can't be
this could not possibly be real
you used to call me baby

this is the sound of my heart breaking
with every note you hum

you used to call me baby

truly heartbreaking, tearjerking and inspirational.

I just suddenly realized I don't know much about you. Okay, maybe I've known that for so very long but I've been trying to dodge that truth. Facebook just helped me by smacking the truth in my face.

wanted to update but it's nearly 9.30 and I should've turned this off like half an hour ago. truthfully I only switched it on to listen to ally heman. check her songs out, she's a great songwriter/singer!!

Drive-Through Romance

113 posts to go and 11-2-Armageddon is no more! Dead!

"Dead? As in?"

"Dead dead. As in, really dead."

To quote Size Doesn't Matter, however rephrased it might be.

Oh, and to quote Gossip Girl (♥!!)...

"Hi! Dan! Jenny! .... TREE!"

LOL sorry that was so random.

Went to Platinum today (got up at 8.45, left house at 9.30) and only stayed for an hour! The miraculous thing was, I only got 2 items and both were on my wishlist. Wow, self control much? ;D haha. My April savings are all gone and so is (probably) most of my May savings. *cough* I bought... *drumroll, pleeaz!*

  • the gorgeous fringed boots!! I wanted the grey/black (my choices 2 and 3 out of 4 colours), but ironically they didn't have size 40 in those, they only had 40 in cream (choice 1) and dark brown (choice 4). you'd think I'd have bought the cream (it looked so beyewtiful!) but sensibility got the better of me and I bought the dark brown. so gorgeous anyway! dad bargained the price down by more than a hundred baht, I think. thank goodness. but it's still very ex. which explains why I promised to forgo the rest of my april savings for them.
  • a gorgeous black mostly-matte vest!! sorry to use 'gorgeous' again, but there's no other word to describe it. the girl at the shop helped me adjust it and it fits so well now! :D yesss! using may savings to pay for it.

  • lalalalaala!

    mum's coming back today from singapore. dad says I should wear my boots and surprise her :D (cos she didn't want to buy them for me. *cough* *looks away*)

    and and and! you know that butterfly necklace I posted here once? (the one chingying wanted? *cough*) I told you guys it broke, right? (the chain just snapped at school. pfft.) I came up with a brill plan! since it was so beautiful (silver fluidy chains and brown shiny butterfly charms), I used pliers and took out all the butterflies and made 3 pairs of earrings! one for my mum and two for myself. the last one is really pretty: I used two different-length silver chains as well as rainbow glass beads for a super-long dangling design :D it's almost like the rain in the sun one from TGB (but less pretty XD cos I'm no expert).


    will post pics here once I make up my mind to get off my butt and get the camera. haha. first up: jt's moses pictures!!

    [/edit] I'm so dumb, I posted this to Art Collab.

    The Weekend's Gone Past Its Speed Limit

    sweetpurity cancelled her account & justine's quit blogging.

    oh, 'tis a depressing day indeed.

    the weekend's gone by so fast! before I know it, gossip girl disc 4 is finished and disc 5 has been passed over; mita has gone and bought her dress for the dance despite telling us she was going to shop for it with us; saturday's dinner with sher & family is already over; and TOMORROW'S MONDAYBLUESDAY. darn it.

    good thing is, the day AFTER bluesday is tuesday the holiday, and my dad has promised that if I wake up early he'll bring me to platinum. yesss!

    since my mum's in singapore and will be returning tuesday, my original plan for this weekend was to go platinum and get those fringed boots I've been drooling over. however, while I remembered that my dad in a good mood will sponsor most of the random stuff I feel like buying, I overlooked the fact that that's mostly in spacious, A/C-filled areas like Emporium, not packed-like-sardines-but-still-A/C-ed drool-till-you-drop places like Platinum.

    so yesterday we went Emporium and bought a pink cosmetics case for sway-sim and a matching one for mum, as well as a photo frame for the picture of joseph & I that sway-chick just developed. dinner was spent with chips, pizza, kfc, football and gossip girl. mmm!

    today, we went to church- 2nd last CCD class! this saturday's our retreat. grrrr. plus confession. "my last confession was... some time ago." I don't even remember. eek! after church we went to emporium, where we got joseph this adorable shirt that says Don't Bug Me! as well as the cutest monkey plush toy you ever saw. I named it Moses the Monkey, because Moses sounds like Mosef which sounds like Joseph. right??

    hung out with joseph for about one-two hours eating ummm! milk ice cream and just hugging him, until his good mood expired and he decided he didn't want to sleep. however, before the crying bout, sway chick managed to take a cute pic of him cuddling moses, and I'm going to post it next.

    then went back home where I touched up my nails and nearly fell asleep on the bed. put on a hydrating mask thing, which was so cold it woke me right up. turned on A/C and internet, and here I am now! needing to compose my To-Do list cos I forgot all about h/w. thank goodness I don't have much to do- I think.

    Grace's Sunday Rush To-Do List:
    1. Finish 'Pobre Ana' by Monday; be ready for quiz. (YESSS! NO MORE ANA!)
    2. Work on G.S. Reflection- this is optional though, because we'll have class time to work on it on Monday. I need to check how much I've done exactly.
    3. Spoke Diagram for Humanities, due Wednesday.
    4. Check 11-7 if I'm feeling hardworking. I'm 99% sure I got the last two questions wrong because I had no idea what the hell they were talking about.
    5. Do background research for Dreamers of the Day and post to M.A.


    Now I need to GETTOWORK!

    I'll come running,

    'Cos You're Hot, Then You're Cold

    Blades. has left a very confusing comment on my latest skin.

    Some girl called Sarah B. tagged on my ex-blog saying "I think you're really pweety" or something. Interesting!

    Just watched 1.5 episodes of Gossip Girl.

    Going to make a simple skin inspired by doughnutcrazy's awesome skin. maybe more colourful, with a celeb icon(s) so I can submit for sweetpurity's celeb competition (which has slipped away from the recent forums section! eck!).

    Which celeb, though?

    Maybe I'll do some Leighton Meesters.

    That's What They Want, Want

    Loving Katharine McPhee's I Know What Boys Like.

    Dad's friend is currently over for dinner, so I ate super fast and escaped. Today was so fun! Last rocket launch D: wish we did this every day.

    This guy who left ISB in like 4th grade or smth came over to visit, and while he was talking to Noah, Joseph and Robbie Tata was like, "HE LOOKS LIKE MIRANDA COSGROVE!" and we were all rofling so hard because it was absoluteeely true. Seriously.

    Then, something totally embarrassing happened. We were all sitting in a row on the field waiting for the rocket to launch, holding our inclinometers. I was with Tata, Noah and Robbie were on our right and Nimarta and Mindy on our left. So N's team was on and I didn't know. N is, in case you didn't know, THE popular girl in school. She was wearing her softball or whatever jacket, while I was sweating like CRAZY. So I went, "Who's that girl? Oh, Neomi... she's wearing a jacket! ISN'T SHE HOT?" And all of a sudden I realized Noah was laughing at me, and that I'd said it pretty damn loud. Then suddenly EVERYONE was laughing and staring at me, and I realized the stupid implications of what I'd said. So I spent the whole lesson hyperventilating about that stupid sentence. And Nimarta lectured me on saying feeling before the adjective.


    Haha I'm still embarrassed. I told my dad and he was laughing at me. Then I had a lengthy monologue about anthropology in our school. Anthro. is actually quite a cool subject. I might take it up.

    Nothing else happened that was that exciting. Except for Joseph and his (1) stupid staring-to-see-if-your-poker-face-is-truthful and (2) "Whatevs!"


    in GS we learned how to do myisb, and then we worked on our reflection. E was there. I mentioned him before; Tata might know who he is! clue? mascara.

    so, anyway, Mrs. Pine-Petthong was asking, "But what do the poor lack access to?"

    If you know E, he speaks really slowly and really enunciates the Ss. He also accompanies every sentence with a I'm-a-friendly-guy-who's-going-to-murder-your-mother smile. So he was like,

    E: sssssity. *big grin*
    Mrs P-P: yes! so if the poor need to move near the city, where does the govt. need to place them?
    E: countrysssside.
    Me: What.

    *koff* anyway!

    [To E, if you're reading this, I don't know why I didn't get sick of the way you talk earlier. YOU SMILE TOO MUCH!]

    want to make a simple non-navi blogskin for this place. then again maybe I'll do a navi one. cos if not my fat wishlist will screw up the whole width thing.

    I'll come running,
