Mr Chu

Chuuuuu Chuuuuu train!

“Wgehhhh”, “class ah class”, Mr Chu, sigh, we are REALLY gonna miss you.

I can still remember my first Physics class, I was giggling throughout the whole class because of the word “eight”. HAHAHA. You can’t blame me, I was a naughty girl sitting in the back row then, constantly stuffing food into my mouth. (Not like I’ve changed a lot since then. :P) Just ask Wenfei or Andrew, hahaha, I’m always giggling during Physics. (:

Just look at how naughty we were then!

Mr Chu was our first Physics teacher and the ONLY Physics teacher we had. We were really lucky to have him.

Mighty Minds 09

He even accompanied us when we went for the Mighty Minds Competition a year ago. Before the competition, we had “practices”, solving various questions and completing different tasks and challeges, Mr Chu did his best to prepare us for the competion. One of the challenges we did, we made a portable lamp where I covered it in orange paper and foil, it looked like an alien lamp alright!

This year, Mr Chu was 5 Mozart’s assistant home room teacher. We were lucky enough to have him to teach us Physics again this year too.

My first day in school this year, I had lost all my stuff in my locker. I was so devastated because I thought I’ve lost ALL my books. So I went over to Mr Chu and asked him to help me. Although I didn’t get everything back but I got most of the important stuff and Mr Chu really tried his best to get everything back for me.

You might see Mr Chu as a quiet teacher, but deep down inside, he is really one of the most dedicated teachers I know. He would explain a certain subtopic over and over again, no matter how many times we ask him, so that we would understand. He would fill up the whiteboard with notes every single time we have Physics. (that’s a lot of ink!) He would show us his very cool magic tricks which obviously are just scientific experiments lah! He would tell us stories of him being recognized as a young boy with a babyface and get us laughing at his jokes. Oh, Mr Chu.

Just last week, we got to know that Mr Chu would be leaving school at the end of this semester. Everyone was like “Whaaaaaat? Whyyyyyy?”, the next question that popped into our minds was “Who is going to be our new Physics teacher then?”. You know, no matter who is it going to be, we are still gonna miss Mr Chu, very much.

I would have to say Physics is indeed my weakest subject, not because I do not like it or Mr Chu has not taught me well, I just find it hard to understand. I’m sorry if I’ve disappointed you, Mr Chu, because I don’t score very high in Physics all the time and my marks were never really that promising. But you know what? I will get that A for Physics in my upcoming SPM, for you Mr Chu. (:

Seeing you sitting in the Physics Lab in the dark all alone when we were about to go and take that alien lamp, I just really don’t know what to tell you what we were there for. Exiting that room and hesitating whether or not to go back in and get it, I just couldn’t do it. Sorry Mr Chu, but I know you didn’t tell us earlier about it too because you didn’t wanna see us sad and distract us with all that with exams coming up soon. We understand. (:

After lunch today, that was our LAST Physics class with Mr Chu. We all know there’s nothing we could do to make him stay and all we could do was to just treasure our last class with him. After that, we proceeded to the hall for a BM seminar and when we came back, Mr Chu left us a note. We teared. It was the sweetest message a teacher has ever written to us.

Mr Chu, we love you too. Take care.

I’m an ice cream junkie!

I’ve been going crazy over CoolhausIce cream sandwiches.

Mmmmm. I would choose this over Tutti Frutti, anytime. (: Someone please bring it over here? Or I shall start my own chain then.

Look, I even designed my own Coolhaus truck, with a touch of the colour purple, of course. (:

Ooohhh, this is so much fun! 😀 I shall make my very own ice cream sandwich this week, hmm what do you say, since i’m gonna free this week you know. (: hehe.

Something similar to this by 17andbaking ? or this one in heart shapes? but i’m tempted to do this one too using espresso!

Hmm, if you’re a ice cream junkie like me, and tempted to try making ice cream sandwiches, try them and let me know how your experience went okay!

READ THIS TOO. NYC’s Top 10 Ice Cream Sandwiches! Someone please bring me to New York now. (:

And how come we don’t have Ciao Bella Gelato here? 😦 😦

Lookie! We even have Starbucks ice cream now! (:

Sorry, had to crop my face out cos I look so blehhh. -___-

Don’t we all love Haagen Dazz? (:

B&J ❤ Hehehe, my favourite flavour – Coffee Heath Bar Crunch! I have not eaten this in a long time. The last time I ate it was 2 years ago in Florida! SO LONG AGO. -.- Oh, and do you know that Haagen Dazz is actually cheapter than Ben & Jerry’s in the states? Yeaahhhh, you can find them as low as 2 dollars during a special deal. That’s how much I pay for a single scoop ice cream on a cone. I think. What a rip off!

Okay, hahaha, I’m done ranting about my ice cream craze. Hehehe.

More to come! (:

Alice in Wonderland

Last Saturday , I watched Alice in Wonderland! (: Hahah, to my surprise, Nadia wasn’t the FFK queen, Victor was. Hahaha. & Thanks a lot for your little surprise, Nadi, too bad I found it out myself the day before. L! 😀

I’ve heard that watching Alice in Wonderland in 3D wasn’t worth it and it was just a gimmick so I decided we should just watch it in 2D, besides I never like watching movies in 3D and I wasn’t going to just waste my money on a 3D movie anyway.

Ever since I watched the trailer on YouTube last year, I marked the date Alice in Wonderland was going to be released and have been dying to watch it!

I LOVED ALICE IN WONDERLAND.

Known for his dark, gothic and quirky vision in films such as Sweeney Todd, Batman and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Tim Burton definitely made his own spin on a classic tale like Alice in Wonderland.

With Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter, omg I’m so inspired to start making my own hats! Hahaha. & the Futterwacken danceee! 😀

And Mia Wasikowska as Alice,

The Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter), oh, I loved her big head. Hehehe.

Anne Hathaway as the White Queen? Plain freaky. :/

Tweedledee and Tweedledum! So cute! Hahaha, they crack me up.

and how can you forget the Chesire Cat!

Tho it was different from the purple one in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, still loved it, the eyes and the tail, pretty mischievious, hmm it got me so mesmerized alright. (:

too cute!

White Rabbit!

and of course Absalom the caterpillar.

There were a Malay couple sitting next to me and the guy said “Tengok tu, Shisha! Hahaha” LOL. Malaysians are so jakun. Haha, we too, we were like look! Malaysia’s on the map! You really have to watch it to know what I’m talking about. (:

Wouldn’t you want to live in the Underland too? (:

I would say Alice in Wonderland was great but the storyline was a bit slow and the characters didn’t really made an impression to remember. Somehow, the only interesting about the movie was probably the artsy side of it. The costumes and the make up is probably the only thing I was interested in.

Costume designer Colleen Atwood and makeup departmen head Valli O’ Reilly did a good job. (: The red court dress that Alice wore as “Um” was so beautiful!

Makeup artist Patty York that did Johnny Depp’s makeup? It got me staring at him the whole time the movie was playing.

The Mad Hatter had mercury poisoning, so this influenced his whole look. One eye is lavenders and purples, and on the other is turquoise, light and dark blue with green, with white eyeliner and white eyelashes.

The special effects were really good too, the Underland just seemed so real and believable. The detail work on the background! (:


And Tim Burton did shoot the movie in 2D before converting to 3D. Well, I did not watch it in 3D so I wouldn’t know if it’s better in 2D or 3D.

Overall, I would say watch it if you’re interested to see the artsy side of the movie because I loved it!

Now, wouldn’t it be interesting if Pishsolver and Upelkuchen actually exists? (:
