Slow and Steady
Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy.
They see you as very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder.
It'd really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively or on the spur of the moment.
They expect you to examine everything carefully from every angle and then usually decide against it.

Really meh?! Hmmm, not that bad lah, right?

The True You

You want your girlfriend or boyfriend to be more relaxed, calm, and composed.
With respect to money, you spend whatever you have.
You think good luck doesn't exist - reality is built on practicalities.
The hidden side of your personality tends to be satisfied to care for things with a minimal amount of effort.
You have a tendency to overdo things, but basically you value your friendships highly.
When it comes to finding a romantic partner, you base your search on information from your friends.
Hmm, actually it's quite true, 'cept that I prefer my bf to be fun and funny. And no, I dun spend all my money. I know I like to spend - a lot. But I keep some ($2 is still some, right?).

Hurrah For The New National Library!!

I know I'm always a bit outdated, but yea, I just saw the A-Z guide to the new National Library and boy oh boy, am I excited! The new NL is just so fantastic, with all those high-tech features, lush green gardens, amazing collection of books, which includes those really rare ones, and The Pod (too bad entry's only by invitation) and The Plaza which is cool enough even for jaded teens to hang out at. And the more wonderful thing is, the new NL will be within walking distance from my new campus (I think..), so I can hang out there while doing some research for projects. How cool is that?!

I know I don't really need all this added features to attract me to the library cuz anyway, I'm quite a bookworm, tho' I don't wear big, thick glasses and spend hours and hours in the library.

I love reading (tho I read mostly fiction books and preferably easy-reading). And coming from Indonesia where a public library with a good collection of books is as rare as a treat from the EvilMan, I treasure the opportunity to read as many books as I like for a minimal fee. In fact, I know of only one public library in Jakarta, but I've never been there as it looks uninviting, and entry is age-limited, if I'm not mistaken.

It is my hope and dream to built numerous libraries in Indo, which would be accessible to people from all walks of life so that even the poor can be learned too. Honest...

So yeah, tho' the Gahmen can be a pain in the arse with their law, I applaud them for their effort to make sure their people is well-read and even make their libraries happening. Can't wait for the new NL to open on July 22!

Episode VIII: The Final Episode!

In the land far far away, there's a girl who has to make one of the most difficult decisions in her life, that is, which college and what course to choose...

Aw crap! Whatever. Anyways, this will be the final episode (hopefully), is it again? yeah, I know, it's been a long story ya, but hey if u can wait for 3 decades for the star wars to conclude, surely you can bear with me... Of course, mine's a tad more boring, and there's no special effects, no heart-thumping soundtract, and definitely no cute actors. But hey, me no Steven Spielberg ya.

I digress, so anyways, I'm now officially a SMU student. Accepted the offer on 20th June and matriculated yesterday, 1st July. Haiz....Dunno whether to feel happy or sad. Oh well, since I'm gonna be stuck there for at least 3 years long, might as well make the best of it.

Wish me all the best!
