Won’t post my entry on Laksa until I get a picture of the famous Laksa stall in NUS’s The Deck 🙂
Today was unbelievably normal, started off with the usual Ateneo hell week ritual of sleeping at 5AM and waking up at 8:30AM. NM3215 Midterm Exam ensues, can’t believe I finished reading 247 pages or so from my ridiculously expensive textbook. Kailangan sulitin :)) Exam time note: their test papers are like entrance exam answer sheets, you answer by shading dots 🙂 It was quite cold inside LT8, but I wore my beloved Ateneo jacket for warmth and luck ❤
Shared lunch with Choupi and walked to the library, we parted ways, so I went back to the dorm and had a nice nap before my class at 4:00PM. After that class, had dinner with Avis at the dorm cafeteria and dropped by her room to get some plastic wrap for my poor, uncovered textbook.
Spent some time talking about random things like hairstyles and weight and academics and whatnot, then proceeded to talk about a perennial dorm issue: room status. Seeing how spotless Avis' and Moe's rooms were, (Avis is nitpicky about cleaning-up) I decided to let Avis visit my room for a check-up.
See, I'm not a very particular person when it comes to room cleanliness. Before I cleaned my room tonight, it looked like a pig sty. Books on the bed, towels on the chair, paper everywhere, dust bunnies accumulating in the corners, bed severely unmade. Avis literally feel silent for a few seconds after seeing the mess that was my room. Maybe it was that bad. But I had to study for the past few days, so I kind of have a legitimate excuse (yes, I know it is not a legit excuse, kunwari nalang 🙂 )
So here are pictures of my room 🙂 And while I'm at it, I'll do a room tour, after a month or so of life here in Singapore. Here it is fresh from minor cleaning:
The things in my bedside, wallet, cellphones, my alarm clock, pictures, miscellaneous toiletries, some light reading, brushes and all that random jazz. I don’t want to post the insides of my wallet for security reasons, but I’m so proud to have an adult wallet-content wise 8D Back home, I don’t really bother much with wallets since I only put small amounts of cash in them. Now my wallet is my life, it has my credit card, a debit card, my Singapore Student Pass (for identification, instead of lugging around the passport), my NUS Matriculation Card, my EZ Link Card, a NETS Cash Card I use for printing, ICAAA Alumnae Card, Ateneo ID, receipts and SGD$10 🙂 Too many cards all of a sudden :))
Pen holder, notice that my pencil case is Rilakkuma <3! my 2010 planner (I chose a small one instead of the big ones I always use years back). I recycle Cafe Mocha cups that I get from the vendo machine and put stuff in them after washing. I don't like throwing things away 🙂 Especially if they're in nice packaging.
My Queen Latifah-esque bathrobe. Pink in all its splendour. My constant companion to the bathroom and back 🙂 Bought it at Cotton On Wisma Atria. Fun fact: I called up my mom asking her if I could buy this 8D Why? Because it was freaking expensive even on sale: SGD$29 :’
My basket of bath items. Not that it’s interesting 8D OHOHOH. I’m no skin care expert, but I swear Biore Facial Wash in Cool is like the best facial wash ever! Leaves your skin squeaky clean, but you know, undry? And I swear, it dries up zits too (I think?). It’s that small mint green/white bottle to the left 🙂
This is a lucky plant Moe, Avis and I got at Chinatown 🙂 It’s actually a bag of soil shaped into a mouse. I had to soak it in water for an hour for the first wash and 5 minutes every 2 days. Quite proud of how long the plant’s growing 🙂
Books: Most of them I borrow from the library 🙂 Art history and Neoclassicism books for my art history class. PR, Social Entrepreneurship ones for my publication references, my huge-ass Ad and Promotions textbook for advertising class, various design books for me to look at when I’m bored 🙂
My pillow, iPod and headphones 🙂 I love my headphones. Strangely enough, I swear pink is not my favorite color. I only tend to buy pink stuff for reasons unknown to me (EH KASI PRETTY!) Mish, if you want, there’s a teal green version of this available 🙂 I can get one for you! 🙂 Note: Bad Boy (my hedgehog) is hanging out in a solitary corner ❤
So that's it 🙂 Give my room a week and I can be sure that it'll be pretty messy again :8D
Oh before I end:
Tonight, there was a fire drill for the residents in my dorm 🙂 They had a fire extinguishing trial afterwards, this is me extinguishing a fire 🙂
