Hi guys!!! It has been a LONG LONG time since I lasted blogged... Haha, really very busy nowadays and now that my prelims are kind of over.. I can spend some time doing stuff and enjoy life.. :)Anyways there is still A levels for me which begins on 8 Nov and ends on 29 Nov 2010. It's really near but I believe that I will do well in the exam and I really love my approach towards education now. It's more of understanding the concepts in my subjects rather than just cramping information in my brain. This approach towards studying really makes me a more knowledgable person and I can feel more secured as a person in my thoughts. Hmm, life is really UNEXPECTED!!! Guess what... one month ago, I injuried my leg when I was playing volleyball in school. It still hasn't healed and I still have difficulty trying to walk properly.. sobz.. but I feel that it's because of this incident that really changed my personality... I am really optimistic now and I am even more determined to succeed in life and as a guy, I have to aim to be emotionally and financially stable throughout my entire life. This mishap is something that either breaks me as a person or make me a stronger person. I chose to persevere even if it hurts to walk on and go on in life. I really RESPECT all those disabled people in society because I was once a disabled person, not able to walk on both feet. On that day that my leg got injuried, I was sent to the hospital due to my inability to walk normally. My right leg was as good as useless and it couldn't support my body weight. I had to limp on one foot to move around. At the hospital, I sat on a wheel-chair. It was REALLY demoralising as it was my first time. It really feels damn saddening that you feel that you cannot walk normally as a person and that you have to rely on your friends to push you around... :( I felt really terrible inside-out. Luckily, the doctor said it was only a minor tear and strain in my thigh muscle. So it kind of healed and now I can walk on 2 legs:) But still have difficulty to walk fast or run. Can you imagine a day that you see people playing or running in the field and you know you just can't join them and have fun cause your legs don't allow you to? It's really so haiz... oh well...It's due to that incident that I have grown to be a matured person in my thoughts and now I feel there's a new sense and purpose in life. The incident made me a stronger person and also a more emotionally -stable guy. I really love my family, friends and everyone around me. I feel loved and I want to share and spread my love to others. I am really enjoying everyday in my life as I believe that everyday is special and we MUST treasure everyday and also not take things for granted. Our limps are utmost importance and don't ever neglect them. These hands and legs are really important for the enjoyment of life and I am glad that I haven't lose a leg... THANK GOD!!! Haha, now I am just focusing on my studies and I am aiming to enter NUS so that I can graduate with a degree. With this degree, I will be able to find a stable job so as to be financially stable and to also support my family and my future family:) YAY!!! I am doing something about my future as I believe that I will have a happy family in the future.... I believe I will be a really responsible and loving guy towards my girl and also understand her situations and to also help her if I can. I am ready for any challenges and I will remain strong and determined in life. Anyways, I am really proud of Singapore! The entire YOG thingy was AWESOME!!!! 100% RESPECT!! Personally, I saw one olympic event and the closing ceremony held at the GORGEOUS Marina Bay area! I saw the atheletics event held at the Bishan stadium and what really triggered and inspired me to believe in the true olympic spirit was a girl running her 2000m run. It wasn't just an ordinary girl. On her 2nd lap, she fell down and hurt her legs. I guessed it was really bad and her legs were bleeding quite badly. However, she stood up and continued to run her last 4 rounds!!! It was truly respectable and I could see how determined she was to complete her race. At last, she finished the race about 1 min behind the 2nd last runner and I saw her collapsed after that. She couldn't walk and I could see her tears in her eyes... It was so touching and she really command my respect. :) This is called the can-do-it attitude and despite life's mishaps, never give up and persevere on. I really loved the youth olympic flame as it really symbolises my heart within me. The constant burning of the spiral flame really is really inspiring and I am glad I managed to catch it 'live'. It is truly an honour to have seen the closing ceremony of this inaugural yog event and I believe that as Singaporeans, we will never forget that our country has hosted such a reputable international event. Anyways, today is my dad's bday and my family celebrated his bday yesterday at Swensons!!! I really love my family's warmth and support and I will treasure these moments forever. Till then, take cares everyone and ya... I really hope that special someone meant for me is doing well and I wish her all the best in her life!!! Really hope you are ok and do take care of yourself k?
YOU CAN DO IT!!! Hahaz... You will always have never-ending support from me!!! Jiayou and take care!!!Leaving all of you guys out there a quote, 'The way to love anything is to realise that it might be lost anytime in life.'hahaz... Love, Aldy :)

Hi guys, I dont know if it's totally weird or not but I am actually gonna blog about something today...
It has really been a while since the last time I blogged in my very own blog! But yea, I feel happy to be in ACJC and really, I made lots of new friends and had many countless experiences in the school.
I really enjoyed the recent band concert at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music (NUS) and it was the first MUSE concert of the year. It was really the first time that I actually had tears forming in my eyes during the 3rd mvt of the Third Symphony by James Barnes. The horn solo was damn emo and my friend really played it well. It really touched my inner-most feeling within and I truly enjoyed the performance. I really love making music and to express my music to others but when I sit down and truly ask myself....'Do I really have a strong passion in music? Do I mind playing the piano for abt 2-3 hours everyday? Am I really happy to commit myself to music? ' All these questions are really hard to answer and I dont really have the motivation and passion to practice piano everyday from 2-3 hours. I just love to make music but i admit I am lazy.
Until today, I still dont know my passion in life. I always wondered what will I be like in 10 years time, or after NS. What will I do? Will I pursue a music degree? University? Piano teacher? Haiz, I am just really confused with myself and I really dont know what to do in life. I am struggling in JC and my grades are quite bad. I really wanna do something about it but I am quite lazy and it really alarming that I am not doing anything about it. I try to study and do my homework but somehow, everything that I remember now will be forgotten in 2-3 days time. I really have poor memory. I am just emoing everyday....
And to add to my emoness, I have a crush on a girl in my school. She's really cute and amicable. She's really active and a happy joyful girl. I cant' really fully describe her but I feel that she stands out from the other girls I know in AC. Somehow, when i talk to her, I feel a sense of happiness and that nice feeling in me. But somehow, I noticed her for about 2 months already but I still hesitate to make the first move. I just feel that I'm not the one for her. Like there's a part of me that constantly tells me that I shouldn't go for that girl cause I just don't wanna harm her and to add stress to her life. It's just me. I am really an emotional guy and I do care for my friends. I really try my best to help and to the special girl like her.... The more I won't wanna harm her....
Haiz, life is weird. I really can sum my personalities.... I am caring, understanding, cheerful, loving and really, I wish that she will find the right guy in her life and will bring joy to her and her family....
Take cares everyone...:)

HAHA... Today is our 1st anniversary spent in our new house... 1 year have past... yea.. we stayed here since 1 june 2008...
Anyways, I will be going for ACJC choir concert later.. Guess what.. I almost FORGOT... damn blur nowadays... HMM, I wanna recommend something to you guys...
I watched this korean drama... Beethoven Virus... DAMN nice and meaningful... HAHA.. The show is about this girl, wanting to create an orchestra with her 300M won. But sadly, her money got swindled and she lost all her money. So she went around asking members of the public to join her orchestra. However, these members will not be paid, and they have to come for practices and to perform in the end. Many didn't bother to join. Du Ru Mi, the girl's name, found a trumpeter near her home, and decided to approach him. It wasn't easy to persuade him to join the orchestra. But in the end, he did.
During the course, he liked Du-Ru-Mi (Principal Violinist). What really hit me is that Du-Ru-Mi looks like someone in the band... Soon, Du-Ru-Mi began to like the conductor. But the conductor was heartless and didn't accept her love, instead, he treated Du-Ru-Mi badly. Du-Ru-Mi continued to chase after her love, while the trumpeter's heart was badly hurt inside.
Haha, but yea, it freed my mind from someone....after watching this show... Personally, I rate this show 9/10. One of the best dramas I ever watch...:):):)
Anyways, I will be camping in school for the next 3 days!! 3-5 June. :) Oh yar....People, pls come and support the AC band and the National MEP orchestra... Our concerts will be at...
ACJC band - 20 June 2009, 7.30pm, Victoria Concert Hall. Tickets priced at $12, $15.
National MEP orchestra - 23 July 2009, 7.30pm, Esplanade Concert Hall. No info yet for the tickets $...
To end off, I wanna say that ACJC choir ROCK man!! You guys pitched the chords really well.. E.g D flat major chord....HA... I give it a 9/10. You guys really make the college proud. :)
Really stressed nowadays... but I have to fight on..

This week was HORRIBLE!!! Guess what man... MY GRAPHIC CALCULATOR IS SPOILT!!!! OMG!!!!
Acjc had their cross country last wednesday, 25 feb 2009. We had to report to Bishan Park for the 3.3km mass run... I didnt bother to participate in the competitive run cause AC have many good runners!! Damn hard to get top 100 de... so yea, after sch, we had to go there... I went with my OG and yea, took us more than an hour to reach... we were all lost man... LOL!!! We practically walked half of bishan park just to get to the reporting place... Siao la... abt 2km walk sia... HAHA, still we manage to get there... but we freaking late! Oh well, attendance not taken for me... sadly...
Hmm, so I left my bag and my file under the tent...with the rest... Soon, the mass run began...I ran with my OG... haha, so funny la... It became more like a mass WALK... LOL. People were all walking... LALALA... DOTS.. We walked for abt 5mins.. then it started to drizzle.. Quickly, we seeked shelter... but yea, the AC ppl say we cannot rest there, must continue... oK lor...
Then after walking for another 5 mins, rain came POURING down!!! and guess what... it was DAMN FREAKING COLD!!! I was shivering ...BADLY?? So i thought of 'fire' in front of me... so I will feel a little better... yea, all of us. AC CRUSANDERS (ARchilles) got together and we stomped through the rain... cool exp leh.. but yea, I was wet from head to toe... my shoes were also SOAKed!
There was lightning ... One of those, almost struck me sia... SO close! I saw a quick flash! The thunder was DEAFENING! but something really surprised me... is that even through it was pouring ... an AC teacher still took a pic of our OG in the shelter... her camera died later... Damn touched by her...
So yea, all of us all waited for the STUPID rain to stop... I was thinking... OMGOMGOMG!!! My bag!!! My wallet, handphone GC!!! SHIT! DIE!!! I knew that my gc is dead... but yea, I couldnt wait for the rain to stop, so yea, ran back to the reporting place and somehow, our bags were transferred to the HDB blocks across the road... There, THERE WAS CHAOS! Everyone was frantically searching for their bags.. me too... ! MY BAG!!!! i searched round and round... then I found my bag!!! Thank god! But where's my file? Hmm, took me a while longer just to find my file back....
I searched my bag for my wallet and phone.... They were safe.... and then ... It was my GC... I opened it... and guess what... IT HANGed... F***! Seriously... WT*. OMG! I took out the batteries and yea, it was BLANK! I pressed the ON key many many times.. It didnt respond.. DAMN IT! It's spoilt! **** LA. Must go buy another one sia... $176 leh! Maybe it may cost $190! And guess what... my notes!!! They became WET and with mud... CRAP LA!
But my friend, she lost her skirt. Inside it included her wallet and her phone... gosh, it was missing... I really hope she will find back her wallet and her hp. So yea, MY GC IS DEAD. My h2 math gonna be screwed!

In my life, there is a girl out there that will be waiting for me... someday she will appear before my very eyes... and now, all I can do is to study hard to enter NUS... What's meant to be yours, will be yours. :)

Hmm, I went to school today! My first day at Ac as an official student there... I was so blur can...dunno where to go sia... then I waited outside the hall till I met one of my band friend. Wor seh... you know how they sing national anthem? With the help of the Acjc choir sia!!! GOSH!!! Their choir sound damn awesome sia.. I love the national anthem more...:)

Cannot express properly... and the test.. forgot to hear and revise... LOL.. I scored 10/20 for the test.. CRAP... Haiz.. it's over... Maybe cant take h2 music le.. So poor... and the teacher dont really like me at all... She finds me a little irritating at times...cause I am so eager to take music.. then she like cannot stand it...
So yea.. My desired subject combination...
1st choice) H1 Geography
H2 Economics, Mathematics and Music
2nd choice) H1 Geography
H2 Economics, Mathematics and Chemistry

Today they had campfire.. at 6pm to 10.30pm. My orientation group leader asked me to come.. I didnt wanna go cause apparently during the campfire, we must dance with a partner and also mass dancing... Dey, I dont even know any dance moves and I was freaking tired.. Somemore, tmr have whole day of band prac.. Haiz. never meet new friends... Dont even know who is in my group sia... Damn anti-social...
Whatever la... I seriously damn sad already.... Although I entered Ac but I dont think I can take my desired subject combi... Still, I will work hard in whatever subject I take...Show them what a 18 pointer can do. :)

Hmm, There are many things that I wanna say here...
Today..I was so anxious waiting for Acjc to call me...I waited and waited...Nothing... No calls.. so ya..I practice my whole Dipabrsm piano recital today...abt 1h30mins...then practice band piece, Harrison's Dream for 45 mins....
After spending time with the piano....yawn, still no calls.. Went to play computer games le... But well, just damn freaking bored at home...How I wish I was at Acjc orientation... So I left house at 5 plus to go for band prac...
As I entered acjc school gate, I saw all those new Jc1s...they were having so much fun...and I was just feeling leftout... lalala.. walking to the band room... Then I heard someone from band already receive phonecall from acjc... and yea, they say that if I person receive..all should receive le...
I knew it was bad news... cause I didnt receive anything...oh well, yeah..I knew that they wouldnt accept me...haiz, L1R5-18 leh... so damn freaking lousy... moreover, I dont think I can even take h2 music if I enter acjc... Defeats my purpose of entering acjc.
But really...many ppl will think that I am just wasting time at acjc... in the end, also cannot enter... But really, after attending so many acjc band practices, I really improved a lot... I know how to play mallets correctly... but oh well...
Anyways..probably going to SP le...! Banking & Financial Services man!!! WOHOO!!! My 1st poly choice...I know that if I enter poly/jc, I must aim to enter the local unis... Seriously... many ppl will advise me to go poly cause my english sucks... GP sure suffer de..
True la... when the ac band teacher said to me... How can you convince me that you will work hard if you enter Acjc?? I knew I cant really say much... next, explain your lousy O level results. I was speechless...
Hmm, still dont underestimate 18 pointer... I will work hard in poly, make it to local uni and get a degree. This is my AIM. and no one will stop me. :)
Dreams...that will never come true... Believing in myself and yea, strong motivation to study...:)
Before I end off, just wanna say something... For those who are in JCs... Have fun in your JC orientation days!!!

But in the story..I saw many things that touches my heart...and yea, reminds me of someone special to me... They had many experiences together and found out many aspects of their partner...I didnt have that chance but well, I almost cried at times cause I felt happy for them.. So yea, was emo-ing in the cinema... Overall, rather boring...so I rate it only 6/10. Changeling is the best movie man!!! Seriously... I rate it 9/10. You ppl should really watch Changeling if you haven!!! :) Great, great movie...

Hi ppl...anyways, today I went to school...queensway sec ... haha..
I arrived at sch at abt 11am...then walked around aimlessly...waiting for the Chinese New Year concert to start... So yea, I went to band room and saw Ms Lee... She asked me where I was heading after sec sch.. I said maybe acjc or sp.. Yea, band has taught me many values in life...
Anyways, I went to watch the concert and guess what... In the history of Queensway sec, it was the first time that a student conductor is conducting the concert band...haha, yea, the band sounded better than i thought... so yea, not bad ...
Hmm, after that, we went to hawker to eat lunch, daud and ching keat went too... We plan to play pool after that... lalala...
The pool games was like LOL...I was like missing so many balls...GOSH... Played like shit... everything miss... white ball keep entering... LOL... I wasnt playing properly though...cause I was feeling down today...damn dissappointed and annoyed... Girls are complicated, i guess... Sometimes being so understanding, ppl may call you irritating...haiz, whatever...cant do anything..
So we went to Plaza Sing to eat dinner... Daud went to play his jukebox, and guess what.. I really love his 1st song of the game... I really want the song sia.. Hmm, we ate a BK...yea, I have to agree that BK burgers ROCKS... seriously, they melt in your mouth...It just taste better!!! HAHA!!!
It was getting late, so we headed back home... Yawn, another day has past...Life goes on...
Let's think it this way... Everyone is different and we must learn to forgive and to forget...
Wednesday, January 21 . 11:52 AM
Anyways, yesterday I had a great time with my friends...We went to watch Changeling and played arcade at Plaza Singapura.
So we meet at 2.30pm, everyone came...hahaz, justina asked alvan to come also...So there were Divaagar, Daud, Alvan, Justina, dayana and me... We booked the tickets for Changeling (3.30pm) show.
We went to play arcade...haiz sianz, I lost to Alvan in mario cart Twice!!! So sad can... So close...anyways, it was fun... We then continued to play other games... Oh yar, daud, I really love your touch-touch game...your 1st song!!! so nice...
It was abt 3.30pm, so we went to watch the movie...wah, I tell you ar,,,the movie is damn nice...There is a twist to the plot...gosh, cool man...Personally I really pity mrs collins...the main actress...At times, I almost cried for her... saddening. I didnt know it was that difficult just to find her son back... sad case....really pityful.
I rate Changeling 9/10. It is worth your time...seriously. :) Do watch it !!!
Justina, dayana and alvan had to go home after the show.. so left only me, daud and diva...we went back to arcade...and saw a pro guy playing bubbles...ok la, I admit he is pro..He completed level 20, while I died at level 14. yea, he comfirm play many times de. cause he knows some tricks...I dont even know at all.
Daud went to play touch touch...his first game I was like...wor seh...cool man... But he got a B. sad I never seen him getting an A. But anyways, we went to kopitiam to eat. I ordered my favourite. Sliced fish noodles... and yea, daud ordered black carrot cake....quite spicy and kind of sucky.. weird la, the dish..divaagar ordered fried fish with rice...i think so...anyways, divaagar damn lucky. He picked up a free pizza voucher at Swensons at Jurong east mrt station...so cool la...So we went to Swensons to redeem the free pizza...got a seafood pizza...yea, it was nice, but pizza hut pizzas are nicer!
Then, they ordered ice cream. I was full le..So I didnt want to get ice cream. Diva gave me a scoop of coffee ice cream...yea, it was nice... :) The bill came...and guess what... Total amount. $0.00. OMG! I was like.. WHAT???? $o.oo??? Siao le.. then that person said...it was because we were dining with the free vouchers thing... but diva and daud knew they had to pay for the ice creams...it wasnt free la... Buy 1 get 1 free... meaning the bill should be $6.80. Aiya, the bill zero, then we all just byebye..leave the restaurant... haha, I also never buy any ice cream.. so technically, diva and daud benefitted. nice one la. free pizza and ice creams at Swensons...LOL!
Seriously...it was my first time seeing a bill with $0.00. HAHA :)
Anyways, it was 9 pm liao. We all took the mrt home...Upon leaving, I started at the place near Yamaha music school....it brings back memories... nvm, I wont elaborate.. I will hurt me. I have to be strong and to study hard in the future... :)
Haha, I gtg for band prac at acjc later...Got some professional percussionist coaching us later, teaching us rudiments... wor, damn scary...:(
Hmm, that's all for today...cya soon!!! And remember, do take cares and all the best! :)
Sunday, January 18 . 10:39 AM
Hi people...Anyways, after much thought, I feel that there is no point regretting...
I have made up my mind...To continue working hard to achieve my dream. I will not be a loser, and I am determined to get better results next time... So what if my results now suck, it still doesnt determine my future man...Let's start working hard now, there is still time...
There will be many routes to choose in life, if I choose the hard way, then I must work hard... ok, enough of talking....I should reflect and think through carefully my past actions...and to improve....not making the same mistakes again...:)
Anyways, I am fine le, do take cares ppl... This route will be a very tough one for me...but so what, I will do it!!! :)
I will always remember something... If you believe that you will make it, then you will... When there's a will, there's a way... It applies to everything in life... :)
