And here we go…

August 28th, 2003 by MrLuxuryFashionGuru

I’ve said my goodbyes, I’ve wrapped up countless odds and ends, and I’ve packed my bags, sort of (don’t ask).  In less than 48 hours I will be in the air, jetting towards my future – a future I’ve waited and worked so long and hard for, a future so undeserved and unreal, a future I longed for, once upon a time.

I’m bringing too much stuff, I know it, but I’m not leaving without a containerful of the nonya cookies (kueh bankit) I baked today, that tinful of mooncakes and a hefty packet of bak kwa.  Yet I worry about storage for my shoes, shirts and bags in my reportedly “crowded” suite.  More immediate, I worry about lugging my bags (3 suitcases + weekender duffel bag + backpack + violin and counting) across four airports (Changi, JFK, La Guardia and Boston Logan), between two halls (Weld, then Thayer), and across campus.

I’ll miss you all – you know who you are, army pals, debaters, family, fellow Rafflesians, french classmates, friends.  Don’t forget me too fast…  So bookmark this blog!  Now!  🙂

  26. Josh Says:

    I wonder what it was like to live 20,000 years ago ? Working from dawn to dusk and making sure you gathered enough food to survive the winter. Times of plenty and times of hardship. How many of the people today, could survive back then ?

    Roofs are made from different materials. Wood, straw, slate, stone, metal, plastic and anything else that can be used. Mostly depends on where you are in the world and how much you can buy, as to what type of roof you will have.

    Die Dächer sind aus unterschiedlichen Materialien hergestellt. Holz, Stroh, Schiefer, Stein, Metall, Kunststoff und alles andere, die verwendet werden können. Meistens hängt, wo Sie sind in der Welt und wie viel Sie kaufen können, um welche Art von Dach haben Sie.

    Where are we now on the evolution path ? Are we becoming civilized or still going down the path of increasing destructive powers ? Our medical knowledge increases with leaps and bounds of each war, but not as greatly as our destructive weapons.

Bizim tibbi biliklərin hər bir müharibə leaps və həddi artır, lakin kimi çox kimi dağıdıcı hücum silahları. Bizim tibbi biliklərin bizim silah kimi sürətli kimi artmışdır, biz iki və ya daha çox əsrlər boyu canlı edə bilərsiniz.

  33. Kenny Says:

    Warum machen die Leute verhungern in einer Welt, die mehr Nahrung als es braucht? Auf einer Webseite es sagte, es sei aufgrund der Logistik bewegt die Nahrung. Ich sage, es ist mehr mit Profit als einen Mangel an der Fähigkeit, die Nahrung zu, wo sie benötigt bewegen. Auch einige Länder der Dritten Welt exportieren Lebensmittel, die sie brauchen, damit sie Geld für andere Dinge zu bekommen. Wenn wir alle noch auf halbem Weg zu dem, was wir Menschheit nennen, würde niemand verhungern. Aber wir sind Menschen und nicht, bis unsere guten Ideale zu leben.

    Terfysgoedd unwaith eto rhwygo trwy nifer o ddinasoedd Lloegr. Bydd llawer o bobl yn troi i fyny ar gyfer eu man gwaith heddiw i ddod o hyd iddo ddrylliwyd neu’n waeth, dinistrio. Faint mwy o yn mynd i golli eu swyddi fel eu man gwaith gael ei ddinistrio? Dod yn y fyddin ac yn cael dim dal wahardd wrth ddelio â’r terfysgwyr. Maent eisiau brifo eraill trwy frics taflu a phethau eraill, felly dylai fod yr un fath drais yn ôl ar eu cyfer.

  43. Isaac Says:

    There is a dangerous virus being passed around electronically, orally, and by hand. This virus is called Worm-Overload-Recreational-Killer (WORK). If you receive WORK from any of your colleagues, your boss, or anyone else via any means DO NOT TOUCH IT. This virus will wipe out your private life completely.
    If you should come into contact with WORK, put your jacket on and take two good friends to the nearest grocery store. Purchase the antidote known as Work-Isolating-Neutralizer-Extract (WINE) or Bothersome-Employer-Elimination-Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.
    You should forward this warning to five friends. If you do not have five friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life.

    During a recent PASSWORD AUDIT by my bank, they found that I was using the following password:


    When they asked me why I had such a long password

    be at least 8 characters long and include one capital”
