Cool shot of the trebuchet against the evening sky on one of the test-firing days
After giving the briefings, I had to go and help prepare the trebuchet for firing. I even brought a little burgee to indicate wind direction and so to adjust firing angle of the trebuchet. The first group of students were fine, they were eager to try out the trebuchet and willing to listen and learn more about ballistics and stuff. HOWEVER, the second batch of students were a pain in the ass. If I had my bokken, I’d have snapped their spines. They think violating safety measures is a joke. One of them almost pulled the firing pin as i removed the safety rope. Yikes, if that happened, the member would have tore a piece of my face off. They still laugh at me, for being me, liek WTF??? They find the pictures of me in the step by step safety briefing HIGHLY amusing…Mocking the team when the trebuchet malfunctioned, complained that the simulator is lousy, complain about "non-ideal factors" like wind, blaming the team for such non-ideal factors and such. But the worse was calling me TOMMY. Hey you little bastards, if you want to talk behind my back about my face, nails, or how guys with long nails are supposed to be like is fine. But you scums have no respect for someone 4-5 years older than you. Proper name is fine, but no nicknames, only sailors and relatives can call me that, simply because they are same age or older but you little *ucktards can go bug off. And a small piece of advice on me, stop hitting on girls 4-5 years older than you too. Grow some balls and some brains. I pity Pris lol, she was in such an awkward position. The other groups from that batch were better although their lack of enthusiasm was HIGHLY noticable. I wonder why they’re here though. Prolly forced into coming. Some have absolutely no interest in what’s going on. I shall not point fingers at what schools though.
Haiz, it was tiring day after everything. After packing up and complimenting each other for a job well done, at least we hoped so, we went to join the other 06v13-majority bio group who was making poison in the form of bread balls. After taking pictures and stuff, the main group went for dinner and Wong, YamJJ, Keith and I headed home. I was grounded so cannot go for dinner. My grades were CSSSD. Liek WTF, epic FAIL!!! Haiz, must buck up… Anyway, it was an eventful day, I’ve learnt much and gained much, especially the comfy east-zone science fair cotton t-shirt! 🙂
Fang Xiao as Amidala, Peng Rui as Darth Maul and Chris (lolwut) in a mega failed Droideka suit

Service Learning Venture
The first game Captuure the Flag turned out to be a crazy mad dash
Hui Wen and I demonstrating how to play the relay race
Best costume award!!! Btw, I helped design the pharoah…lol
Anyway, it is time for our interschools yet again. This time we couldn’t bring down ACS(I). We’ve tried our best but it wasn’t enough. The wind wasn’t favourable for us. But I shall not blame the wind. Haiz…looks like our 8 year kill streak has ended. I feel sad that it has to end on my batch. I’ve been in VJ for 3 years and we have to lose it this year. Well, defeat is hard to swallow but we’ve learnt our lessons and it’s time to move on and kick our opponent’s asses next year. I guarantee that.
Well, the girls got their 1st with ease. And guys got 2nd. But it was the day of defeat for all of us.
Anyway, some photos of Interschools
Julian and I with Gabriel in the background, all ready to sail…
All the guys in the sailing team, 420s in front, Lazers at the back.
The whole sailing team, where would i be without them…
Ok, I guess that’s about all for the brief recap but there’s so much more that happened, just that I can’t remember. Haiz, getting late, nid to sleep. Tmr got 3 periods of chem tutorials…zzzZZZ JC life is getting VERY mundane…so i’m finding every way and means to entertain myself…
