Hey guys! So here's an update on school life so far! The funnest part of J1 (orientation) is currently over alr:(
But I've had some awesome memories and made lotsa new friends:) Definitely enjoyed myself during orientation!
Here's a full OG Shot :) OG means orientation group btw!
Me and seah super got yuan fen (affinity) LOL, 4 years same class not enough, same OG grp somemore! XD but im glad she was in the same grp as me cos i was kinda awkward at first, so many new ppl :O
& becos we are the awesome OG5 (aka 69!), we did facepalms, get it?? facepalm=5
haha only szechuan and marcus pangseh us, nv do facepalm!!
hehe we love fooling around during some of the boring talks slot between orientation games!
Say hi to sylvia the vietnamese
Chloe and cheekuen, some of my fav new friends:)
omg hahaha i got pororo-ed by cheekuen!
Stayed till late at night in school to bond as an OG:) Played games and my OG leader told us ghost stories about hwachong! I was seriously scared k>_<
K so thats for OG:)
Another part of orientation is to bond with our new classes, classes are allocated acc to our subject combinations. I'm taking BCME- Bio chem math econs!
Class list, released online. Everyone was super nervous, some were hopeful, like me. I really did wish to be in the same class as seah but sadly it didnt happen>< I shall be honest here, i was kind of disappointed at my class allocation during the first 2-3 days. But now a few months have passed already and i am more or less integrated into my class:) Some people couldnt stand it and changed class within a few days, even making a big fuss. I'm glad i persevered, now im pretty alright with my new class:)
Class photo during CNY:) My faculty is ARES btw, god of war! There is still Athena(green), Artemis(blue) and Apollo(yellow)! My bro is in apollo cos he's in the humanities prog. But... no doubt, ARES is the best ;) More about ares in another post!
Hwachong has a tradition of banner painting, so here's my first banner painting experience in hc, for CNY:)) Nice anot! Can yall see the numbers 1374 in yellow?:) 13S74 is my class!
Celebrations in HC have always been a big thing, the decorations and stuff are no joke! For cny its already quite nice, but for mid autumn festival its gonna be da bomb :) Btw all decos are done up by our school Councillors! They are all super pro can! They constructed the giant lantern there by themselves! And they can construct working fountains from tables and some other stuff O_O amazing or what!
All our class banners!
So so pretty :')
i spent a large part of cny celebrations with LFC:) this is seah photobombing my pics again!!
Besties for life
My dear 4/7ers whom i miss so so much >< I rly miss my sec 4 class to be honest:(
Btw the freaking pretty backdrop with the flowers and chinese words is painted by the councillors again lol, and they had to climb these metal bars to put up this giant backdrop, PRO.
Went back to NY after HC's celebrations! I love my goofball friends :') Pingz and I are in the same class btw!
My fellow tham ;)
And for CNY celebration we had a concert, which is a yearly affair! Choir is of cos, perfoming cny songs hahaha.
Sopranos!<3 with my batchmates and seniors:)
Choir Lou Hei! Started off nice and gentle, cos the teachers are very wen rou ma.
The girls' turn! Still fairly neat!
Guys' turn, totally messy liao hahaha.
Moving on to campfire night which marks the end of orientation! It was raining for like 2 hours so we had to move to the hall but of cos the atmosphere there is just not there, you know? So when it finally stopped raining we moved out immediately to the central plaza! Thats when everyone got damn high singing hc songs, dancing out batch dance and shouting hc cheers:) AKA SODACHE( SOng, DAnce, CHEer)
It was the first time i was so high, really! Sing damn loud, shout damn loud also haha. Really felt the hc spirit, its something that i cannot describe/do justice to! You'll have to experience it for yourself to know how awesome it is to be part of the hc family, minus the academic stress ;)
Our orientation theme this year is OHANA, which means family:) Check out this awesome OHANA fireball!! Made by the awesome councillors once again, really, nothing they can't do!
Everyone was super high that night! Twas' a night i'll never forget :')
So thats that for campfire night:) Now me and seah aren't in the same class anymore boohoo! But at least we're in the same tuition class! Both of us are taking GP cos we're super noob lol. So here's us enjoying dinner after one of the tuition sessions:) Yoshinoya was yums<3
& then seah went shopping so i accompanied her! Lol and i realise we look like zombies, messy hair and tired looking faces!
& not to forget here's the monthly dose of bellabox:)
Wasn't say v impressed with this month's items! Like v little leh :/
So anyways here's what inside!
Sasatinnie Pomegranate Hand Mask
MeMeMe Pencil Liner
Marry Me! By Lanvin (Parfum)
Nuxe Rose Cleanser
Adonis Detox Gel
The Lanvin scent is really nice! Not too overpowering, subtly lingering there, just how i like it;) I tried the Nuxe Face Wash too, the scent is pretty ok, but it doesn't really lather much which i don't really like. I like it more foamy so that it feels more clean. The MeMeMe liner was okay as well! Glides on quite smoothly with quite an intense shade, haven't tested its staying power though!
& i got this free facial card as well, not sure if i'm gonna use it though! super afraid that once you go the salesppl there will keep niao-ing you to sign package. #firstworldproblems
& anyways here's a random otd! Wore it to OG outing i think, can't really rmb :x
Aforarcade Lace Blouse in Blue
AA Skater Skirt in Heather Grey, S
Review(Aforarcade): Bought this at $24 which i thought was reasonably priced. Main reason i bought this was cos of the colour:) The shade of blue is a light pastel one, very sweet! Didn't disappoint me in this aspect:) The lace was also quite pretty, with scallop hems at the cuffs. Quite delicate though! There is inner lining for this piece so its non scratchy~ However I think this piece may be prone to furring/unravelling cos the lace is reaaally delicate! Other than that no complains for this reasonable price!
Review(AA): Bought this at $24 as well haha, decided to buy this cos i don't have any grey skirts up to date! This one is made of medium-thick cotton, comfy to touch. The cutting is really quite good, flared in a nice and flattering way if you get what i mean:) Oh yes its stretchable at the waist area but there's no visible ugly waistband which is a plus point! However cutting is quite small for this skirt :x I bought size S and it fits me snugly, im a normal uk4/small6 for highwaist bottoms so you can gauge from there! Overall an okay buy, hope it doesn't fur though!
