I went for the Singapore Experiential Tour, 1 of the 3 things I have to complete in order to become a Singapore citizen. I took Bus 16 from TJC to SMU, saw daddy waiting there.

We walked to National Museum of Singapore. We were given lanyards to put on so we could be identified easily. We went through this Singapore Historical Gallery. It was boring. I was also a little annoyed by the tour guide Irene's lisp and because I knew most of the things alrdy.

We took a coach to Urban Redevlopment Authority. Daddy was given 2 free admission tickets to the museum. Students have free admission so I was given any. We were guided by an older facilitator Marcia Ho. The tour there was also not very interesting. We had our tea break. I think that Singapore treats new citizens well, but is this where the tax goes?

We took the coach to Parliament House. It was damn cool. The facil was damn funny too. Quotes from her include "If you walk from here to there, you can see that LKY grows younger, has more hair and less wrinkles." when we were looking at the corridor with the pictures of the Parliament,"If an MP comes early, he can't put tissue paper on the seat beside Lee Hsien Loong, he has to follow the seating arrangement." and "There's no 933, there's only one channel which is the Parliament House." I also learned of the existence of the Speaker. The 1st and 2nd Speaker were Caucasians, 3rd and 4th were Indians, 5th and 6th were Chinese and now he's a Malay, but all males :( The facil also said,"The Speaker has to be a Singapore citizen. Now that you have become a Singapore citizen, you are one step closer to becoming Speaker. And if you do become a Speaker, do not forget me." Haha. The old Speaker's chair brought from the old Parliament House was made in 1955(?) was made by Robinsons and it's still in good shape. THE SPEAKER IS SO COOL. :D If we go for sittings, we need to bow to the Speaker before we sit down and before we go for toilet breaks.

Whoever reads this, don't judge. Because I'm just writing this while being emo. But nobody visits my blog anyway. That's why there's no need to privatise this blog.

I discovered 2 tubs of Häagen-Dazs in the freezer today. I couldn't believe how such an expensive brand of ice cream appeared in my house. I was shocked. I felt so touched, and I actually couldn't bear to even start eating it, which never happens for regular ice cream like Walls.


And just now, Mum just came home, and I asked her when she bought it. She went, "Oh, right. I bought that for daddy because he's too skinny." I felt damn disappointed, you can't even imagine how someone would feel over merely ice cream. I asked her why she didn't buy Häagen-Dazs for me. Then she said something like: Buy for you? It's Mothers' Day, and you didn't even buy for me. I felt damn wronged I started crying. I know I cry over little things. SO WHAT. I usually just eat cheap ice cream, and I could even feel touched over seeing Häagen-Dazs in my house. I was never willing to splurge over my favourite dessert, and I always just buy cheap alternatives. I had to go…

WHY DOES IT ALWAYS HAPPEN?! WHY CAN'T I CONTROL MYSELF BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE? I'm so sorry mummy. You're always so hardworking to raise me, but I never studied hard. Now my lab report is going to be late. Why do I always regret only when it's too late, but I repeat it again and again every time even though I know the consequences? I really hope this is the last time. Do not repeat your mistakes please Huai Tian. I feel so exhausted at my own behaviour and how I always give in to watching shows until I'm right before the deadline. Why am I like that? I even went to visit the counsellor. Why can't I change? I feel so bad for my mum... that she only has one daughter but I turned out like this. Please. I want to pull back my grades back up. PLEASE

A post I posted in SSS1207 Natural Heritage of Singapore IVLE Forum

Donald Trump is seeking quick ways of withdrawing from a global agreement to limit climate change, a source on his transition team said, defying widening international backing for the plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
Trump, who has called global warming a hoax and has promised to quit the Paris Agreement, was considering ways to bypass a theoretical four-year procedure for leaving the accord, according to the source, who works on Trump’s transition team for international energy and climate policy.

So what's the Paris agreement?
The Paris Agreement’s central aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Additionally, the agreement aim…
