Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

So yes, part 2 of my events... continued! Quite long, so Debbie, go skip paragraphs. LOL.
Sometime in the last few weeks I got to catch up with Debbie. Normally I'd say read so-and-so's blog and you'll know what happened, but except for herself, no one who regularly reads my blog knows who she is to begin with -.-. Only Gary knows she admires his photography skills, and hell if you count that as knowing someone. Anyhoo, she's my secondary school classmate. We were in the same school during lower secondary but after failing math, we ended up in the same class, and from there we got to be better friends. Graduating kinda put a damper on how often we met so it was quite a good thing to actually meet up with her, after planning for so long.
After work I rushed down to Marsiling MRT, and since it rained earlier, we couldn't go to the playground we planned earlier, so we just went to KFC to eat and chat to catch up. Let's just say, few things are greater than meeting a really good friend (whom you haven't seen in ages) and just opening up to talk about everything. Topics aside, it was a very pleasant evening, where I planned to chill for only an hour but we ended up going to nearly 3 hours. Hey can't help it right? There was just so much to share and talk about, and when you just open up like that, almost nothing equals the trust and fellowship you have with each other. Chatting later on Windows Live, let's just say I made my priorities known. Friends are more important than videos, and besides God and family, anything else to me. So in return to her post, Debbie, I love you too. In the same way as you! Heh!
Contrasting with that happy event, I had to work at Comex 2007 at Suntec. Freak, 11am-9pm for all 4 days of it. My company is Pluto Technology, and they deal in PCs, but for some reason, they decided to sell Mac products too at Comex, and lucky me, I ended up serving at Apple booth. So did Shawn. They showed us the power of the Mac OS and I was really impressed. I'm more into graphics and Mac delivers, while Windows XP looks like those toddler toy colours. Zzz. Vista looks nice but the price is also "nice" for a computer that supports the graphics and functions of Vista. Pfft. That's why I changed the skin and added a dock and changed the outlook of my Windows XP so now it looks better than all of yours =x! I really don't know how Microsoft actually accepted the blue, orange and green. Yucks! Mac is like so graphics interfaced, and games and software aside, I support Mac! Buy a MacBook, install Windows and get the best of both worlds. Yes!
Anyway, the fair itself was okay. Quite dull because everyone wanted Windows and PCs, so they weren't too interested in Macs. They were impressed by the design and graphics, but because the OS is so different from Windows, they preferred to stick to Windows, instead of learning about Mac. I only sold 2GB RAM to someone and that's all I sold. My booth only sold like two products for each day? Crappy. Oh well, my booth was beside a BenQ booth selling projectors so I had free movies to watch! King Kong, Men In Black II, Taxi, and best of all, Linkin Park's Live in Texas DVD. Who thought movies and MV's were such good time killers. Also slacked by playing games on the Macs when there were no customers. My chess skills are good. Anyone dare to challenge me? I've only lost to two people since moving here! I suppose that's 'cause few people here play chess to begin with. Zzz. On the plus side, my booth was only a few metres away from Intel's booth, which had like 7 models promoting their PCs? So there was plenty of eye candy while I was bored! Plenty of perverts hanging around too! Old geezers. Also bumped into a lot of friends I knew, some working there, some checking out the booths. Kudos to you all~~~
Speaking of love, I went back on Teacher's Day! Okay, I can't say I love Ms Koeh, but like I said before... I'm only obsessed about two girls, Jolin and Ms Koeh! In the same way I "love" Jolin I "love" Ms Koeh too. Though if you think I'm obsessed instead of "loving" them, I suppose you aren't really wrong. Nor right. Ahem! I stayed over at Koh Wee's place the previous night and that's where (for all those wondering) I used nail polish to paint my nails black for the next day. I was tired and kinda rushing it, so I didn't really make it look smooth and nice, like how all those girls do it. Geez, I don't know how they do it so nicely. Spent the night watching movies, TV shows (he has MOBTV), watching MV's and playing poker! On the MV side, I saw a freaking handsome guy. Uruha is part of a band called The Gazette, and if I was gay, I think I'd fall in love with him. Yes he's that handsome. Dang, I wonder how he can look so good. Zzz. I suppose he drives girls nuts then? Lol... on the poker side, as usual, I'm the king of gambling. LOL! Koh Wee taught me how to play poker a few months ago and I beat him all the way. He taught me mahjong and I ended up winning him too. I'm not as interested in mahjong so poker's still my favorite. Anyhoo, I trashed him again... heh! I'm chess king and poker king. Woots!
Okay okay, enough gloating about the fact that I trash people in poker =x. Back to Teacher's Day! Koh Wee and I woke up in the morning to get ready to go back to our secondary school, meeting Wilson along the way. I dressed up gothic style, 'cause I haven't played that image since Emerge. Kinda missing it, so I put on my eyeliner for the first time in ages and wore all my chains, nicknamed the Chains of Destruction (long story behind how I got to like that name). So back in Marsiling Secondary, the first thing I did was find Ms Koeh! Yes, no kidding! Ms Koeh! She cut her hair... so she didn't look as pretty, plus she took part in this Big Walk thing, so she was dressed in very plain clothing. Well, who cares! She still looked super pretty bregardless, and I went back to gaga mode after the initial shock of her haircut. Talked as usual, with me stealing all the talk time, whereas Wei Zhan kept cutting in. CHEAPO! She's MINE! MINE! MINE! Uh, technically she's Lawrence Wong's, but after Ms Koeh told me how he proposed to her (I feel like kicking him for how he proposed) I don't recognize her marriage to him. LOL! I needed to rush off to make it to Comex on time, so I quickly took pictures with her, me taking the most shots and time (sorry). I also caught up with a bunch of teachers I haven't seen in ages. Ms Woo went off to some country for a degree while Ms Mosbergen went to Japan to work. Freak! My Mos Burger went to Japan! Three pretty teachers have left the school already. Ms Koh, Mosbergen (Burger) and Ms Jane. I just hope Ms Koeh doesn't leave anytime soon. Unfortunately, I had to leave soon so I quickly chatted with all the people I passed by, including the canteen stall people, and rushed off to Suntec! I'll post up the pics soon. Someone's been complaining I don't put enough pictures on my blog posts... so I think that'll make her happy.
Now why I've been super tired last week is 'cause I had a 5 day chalet which would be the multiplication ceremony of our cellgroup. Bad thing is, it coincided with Comex. Which means I had to work during the whole day, then go to the chalet and play all night. 5 days/4 nights of chalet and 4 days of Comex. Freaking tiring. Every night I'd come back to the chalet around 10-11pm and enjoy the night out till 4am or so playing basketball (I haven't lost my touch, surprisingly) or something else. And nearly every night, we played Fatal Frame II. While I had either 2 or 4 cellgroups watching, I was the one stuck to play the game. DANG. Everyone watches and screams while I'm the one who has to experience it. Zzz. On the final night of the chalet I really wanted to finish the game, so Jessica, Isabel, Hui Zhen, Joshua, Juswin and I stayed up really late to continue playing Fatal Frame. I was really tired already, so good thing I had my "support" team... heh! I had Isabel help find secret items, Juswin to run from Sae and solve puzzles, and Joshua to find that Bell girl (no, not Isabel, even though she is a bell... get it? LOL) and put pieces together while I continued to play the majority of the game and kill the ghosts. Anyway, inspired by the ghosts who tried to kill me in the game (they seem to pop up more often when I'm playing, not when the rest play, freak) Joshua and I made a little song for them. Tune goes along with "Bananas in Pajamas" theme song.
Your mother, and your father Are floating down the stairs Your mother, and your father Are freaking ugly pairs!
And I forgot the rest -.-. That's 'cause these two little ghost kids will try and play tag with you, killing you in the process, and when you kill them, their mother pops out accusing you of killing them, once you kill her you face the kids grandmother saying you killed her family. Freakos. After that you face another two women who accuse you of killing their children, blah blah blah. So its like I killed their greatgrandmother and all those ancestors in the end or something? Then there was the suicide girl, named in the game as Fallen Woman. You're just happily walking somewhere and you'll hear a scream when a ghost commits suicide and falls in front of you, trying to kill you by grabbing you. After failing, she'll fade away and then drop down somewhere again (screaming along the way), nearer to you. That scared everyone! You can't imagine the screams girls are capable of! Then although we haven't faced her yet, we've seen a video of this girl who climbs out of a box like Sadako from The Ring, and will try to kill you too. Lovely game! And we still have two more chapters to go, with more freaking scary ghosts. Zzz. I had to leave in the morning with Michelle for work, so I couldn't continue playing, although they made it to chapter 8, which is the second last. And on the MRT ride to our workplaces, Michelle and I had a good talk, which is what "walking away" is about. And I'm finally walking away for good.
