Its close to the end of my OITP and im so looking forward to going back. I'd miss a little more things here that i initially said i would miss though.
The Shopping, i love the variety, The food/healthy breakfast, I like how without fail, i would eat eggs and watermelon everyday. Especially watermellon, i have it almost every meal. The Ice cream from the cafeteria. I love the fact that it is free flow.
The good, non humid conditions, I hadnt had a flu since getting off the plane.
I'd miss all of that.
But nonetheless, these are not everything.. I cant wait to get back to my loved ones. I cant wait to see the familiar faces again.
Well, i know i havnt been blogging much, Its because im too busy shopping, or too busy resting. Its mind boggling to write a blog when youre knackered from a whole day in school then lots of shopping, its just nicer to sit infront of the computer, and absorb information rather than tell it.
But the days are ending soon and i only have so little time to shop, so i guess, ill have to go on shopping marathons already.. god, i hate staying so far from the city..

Nonetheless, it was a more interesting day at school than usual. I dont know why but i was completely knocked out during the morning class, like, sometimes, i would forget to reopen my eyes after blinking.
The first hour was okay, i dont know why but i was quite in a good studying mood, then after that i kinda became really flaccid..
Lunch came as a gift.. I didnt want the teacher to spot me being all floppy the whole day, and i was glad that lunch time came. I slept a bit more while the class slowly emptied the classroom and made their way to the cafeteria some 10 mins away.
Then, having heavy feet, i dragged my way there by myself. Listened to "Rage against the music" and put the song "sleep now in the fire" on loop.
Food was semi good today, as it was a public holiday and no one was using the cafeteria but our group, so they cooked french fries and meat, more "children friendly" foods.
Went back, and it was practical time. The teacher brought us to the workshop to point out the components that we have learnt in the classes..
but because its a big group, only a small amount of people were able to fit in the confined spaces under the aircraft engine, so not everybody understood what was going on..
I tried to get as close as possible to listen however, sometimes the other people are talking too loud and sometimes the teacher shifts position and im unable to see what he is referring to..
So i always had to go back and ask my friends, which are usually as confused as me. oh wells.. time to study the manual then..
The fun part came when some people wanted to dismantel one of the engine fan blades.. And he let us do it.. then he also assigned groups to dismantel simple things.
Another group got to dismantle another engine, which had much larger blades.. and our group got to dismantle the engines rear bearing case..
So we got our wrenches and started un screwing. Heh, and when the cover to the bearings finally opened. Gosh, the smell. 1 words keeps coming to my mind. "chao chee bye".
I dont think it smells anything like smelly body parts though, more of.. other stuff.
I dont know, but it smells godly funky, like lots of dead fish or squid, with a coppery smell. with lots of other funky undescribable smell..
JQ says it smells like someone rubbed his shit with salted vegetable and left it in the bearing case for a while to decompose.
Anyway, it was all fun, the oil looked like squids ink, with a tinge of navy blue in it. But i suspect its not the real engine oil, but just some oil used to preserve the parts when its stationary.
So that was fun, and since its a friday, 2 groups decided to go out to play soccer..
It was really fun, and i had never ran so much recently. The weather really helps keep us comfortable, and i think the other guys played the full 90 mins.
Scored 2 goals, :) happy that my skills are still there, just dont have confidence on the ball and also making silly mistakes.
So im back home now, with no pictures in hand after a fun day. heh. srry.. i got lazy with the camera.
Ill bring my camera along the next time round, i promise. :)
It'll be another 2 weeks more before i get home.. and i cant wait.
Sharlene would be going to HK for 1 week, so thats good too since she hates staying at home.. at least it would keep her mind occupied while im away so she wont think about being lonely..
Yay. im in quite high spirits, probably cuz of soccer today too ba.. mmmm

Today was a good day, though it didnt start out as what i would have liked.
I woke up at 7am, and thought, ahh, wth, ill go back and sleep.. Since i have always waked up at 7.40am, i still have another 40 mins of sleep..
Apparently JQ woke me up again at 7.40, telling me that he was going out already, so usually, ill get up then and start preparing for school, however, this time, i dont exactly remember why i decided to sleep more.
So the next time i woke up was when my group leader and JQ burst into my room telling me to wake up. I thought it was a joke. Hahaha
I was still in a daze, and part of my mind was still trying to look for sharlenes skirt, cuz i dreamt that i was in her room. Lol
I got out in like 2 mins. It was a record. But i never been this late before, and when i finally got up on the bus at 8.22 (the bus should leave at 8.15), everyone in the bus clapped for me.
Gosh how embarrassing
Nonetheless, school was tiring as usual, but i was really fresh cuz i found out that i could bring tea to the classroom, so i brought some down from the canteen..
JQ was shocked at the amount of coffee-mate i put in my tea.. (i was trying to make milk tea using coffe-mate).. haha \
Anyway, it kept me awake even though everyone was falling asleep around me.
I had plans for this night, and it was to go out and shop by my self since i hated being in groups. That plan was foiled when the teacher assigned us by groups. So i was stuck to the group for a long time and couldnt go around by myself.
So i basically brought them to where i shopped earlier on, then we broke up into smaller groups and me and another guy went shopping. We walked really quick since he was looking for specific things and we skipped a few floors. Saw a lot of things that sharlene would like, or i'd like sharlene to have.. haha tempted to buy a lot of unnecessary stuff..
Then after that it was back to the hotel, but not before having my dinner, eating a 60Cents stick of lamb that is so damn nice, that i'd consider going back there just to buy it again.
No pictures, unfortunately, cuz i intend to go out alone initially and didnt want to get mugged.
