Honey!!

The day is getting shorter... it's getting darker earlier.....and... it's getting colder.... brrrr

And I am going to hate Wednesdays because my class will start at 4pm. It will be like going to night school..

I've been busy with school work! I've never been so serious with school work before! I've been revising! I never revise my work when i was in NUS.. well only during the exams! I'm now struggling with JAVA. BUT, i'm not gonna let it kill me! NEVERRRR!!


And i made a damn silly mistake! I think my engrish is not that powderful anymore! Well, it's not that powderful to begin with but.. how could I misread my essay question?! How could I! I can't believe it!! WHY did i misread it? EEEEEEK I must never do it again!!! argh! So annoyed with myself! Heng ah, luckilyy i haven't started on it yet. I only realised it after i was talking to my friends about it!

Speaking of friends, i don't have much local friends here. Well actually, my only local friends will be Mr Fat Fingers and his family. My local classmates are not interested in talking to me or the other international students, i think.. Yeah, there are 2 distinct groups in my class. The Brits and The International Students.

I'm glad there are so many international students in my class... and they are all so fun to hang out with. I now have friends from Greece, Argentina, Portugal, Slovenia, India, Poland, Ireland.

Yeah and they think i'm funny cos i drink Honey!
Why?? (Oh, i always bring a flask of hot honey to class everyday! :D )

The Greek boy was like " We don't DRINK honey. We EAT honey! You know?! With bread! No Drinking honey!" So we went round asking if anyone drinks honey at all... and only i and the indian boy drink honey!

Why? Europeans don't drink honey one meh? But Mr Fat Fingers drink honey leh! Actually i've never had honey with bread before... i shall try it..but.. so difficult to buy bread in the UK leh! One loaf is too big for me! And..they expire like within 3 to 4 days! How? And i don't like the idea of freezing my bread.. hmmm... maybe i shall try it next week....

Oh and then that very night...one of my classmates txted me on the the phone "You know what, you don't need to drink honey at all... cos you are oh so sweeeet! haha! Goodnight honey!"

I shuddered ... and pressed the delete button....

EEEEK!!

Heh, so fun having your story happened over there! Yeah, I think you should try to freeze your bread in fridge so that it can last longer. I did it here too as I can;t finish the whole load of bread in 4 days time. So, go for the fridge! Take more warm clothes as it is getting colder now!

Oh no! You got a secret admirer! Think you have to wear a banner on your head saying 'I'm getting married'. Hahah

Ah... the local - international divide... i think the int are more willing to compromise and change their lifestyles to suit one another... you'd have to change lifestyle dramatically to mix ard with most of the locals.... there's always the minority (which i find to be the nicer bunch anyway).

Don't freeze your bread! I tried it before and even tried to toast it but it turned out...weird, to say the least. Haha. The loaf of bread in USA is not small either so I go to Japanese supermarket to buy bread.

And I love drinking honey! My ang moh friends thought it was some kind of urine..-.-" bloody mental..
