Car Racing. Indoors. Without Engines. Yes, it's possible!



This weekend, expect one of the most unusual races you'll ever come across. I mean, you've heard of F1, bike racing, etc, but I daresay an INDOOR gravity-powered race is virtually unheard of.  Cars, painstakingly built from scratch (chassis, with no engine, of course) and then decorated by participants will be pushed from an 8m high ramp.
 
Of course, not everyone can be fearless speed demons, so if you're not a racer, don't worry, you're not forgotten! Like the looks of these?
Mini Sasuke challenge,
Giant inflatables,
Trampoline bungee,
Mini soap box race
Racing simulator

By the way, for the lazy asses, an undecorated chassis looks like this:

Ever since I got hooked to watching Sasuke Challenge, I have been fantasising about conquering this, even when some really Macho man couldn't. And then I can join Ninja warrior and I'll be the first female winner. And then I can make an impression on the WORLD and stop being so invisible hahahah. 
 
A video speaks a trillion zillion words so you'll see why I'm so obsessed over this wall by watching the video here:
 

Here's the program outline!
BTW  His Royal Hotness, Dai Yangtian is gonna be there on Saturday, HAHA. from 2pm to 4pm!

The Day I Fell In Love for Real


I attended a photography workshop today... and fell in love. The most beautiful camera, ever. And it could have been mine but I ws to timid to fight for it, haha. So much for falling in love with it. Just LOOK at that shade of pink!! And the functions, grip, buttons, screen, EVERYTHING.  Just the way I like them!

Learnt a lot, hopefully I'll remember everything, and this puts something new on my plate :P

And... the shutter speeds so fast, unlike my rickety old one which is no good at all for my shaky hands. Uber non-grainy as well, unlike my budget one where I can play Count The Dots when I'm bored lolololol.

It's a bummer that I didn't win this! Would be nice to have a semi-pro camera for this blog and my interests.. and videography (it's FULL HD!!).. and also... you're gonna roll your eyes but.... I'd like to have something nice that Little Miss Perfect doesn't just for a change!

I KNEW that this was up for winning, but then... I just won an iPhone 4s (LIKE OMGOMGOMG), and I felt bad about praying and wishing super hard for this, because that'd be really greedy, and now everybone of my body feels like they're being tattoo-ed with the words 'REGRET'!!

Oh please, please, please, please let me have a semi-pro camera soon.

I LOVE MY NEW NOSE!!! (And very cute pics hahaha)

Hi!! I love my new nose!! It's so much smaller and sharper, don't you think? OMGOMGOMG I LOVE IT SO MUCH I COULD CRY!!!!!
 
Oh HELLO you TROLL. That caught your attention, didn't it! Shut up with the 'you look so different' already. My nose looks smaller because of makeup (and I also caught the right angle)! Though I wouldn't mind going for cosmetic surgery hahahaha. And if I did I'd be really proud of it and show it off!!

If you've got got nose like mine, you'll be super depressed for at least one minute everyday!
Anyway, surgery or not, Photoshop or not, it's nobody's business but the person herself/himself.
 
 
RANDOM STUFF
I don't know about you, but I tend not to buy food sold at clearance sales.


And these are so adorable I wanna eat them up!! Of course I didn't buy them $17 and $13 respectively, rather cheap for original Sanrio merchandise, but too expensive for me. I'm so thrifty, I will be a very good wife!!! :D:D
 
 
Oh and I need to trim my brows soon! I miss the days I had two eyebrows, so here's a pic for me to remember better.
 
Okay Bye!!

6 years, we're still not tired of doing this

Uploading this photo first just because it's my fave and I want it to appear as this post's thumbnail. Haha.

Met up with dear Dia and Ning some time ago!! It;s been 6 years, and we still take hundreds of photos when we go out together. Hahaha. Stupid pose also nvm. 多难看的都看过了。
 


 We went to eat and hahaha my solo pic was horrible!
 
 
 
 Testing the camera. haha. 


We found this superrrr deserted area and did SOME MORE camwhoring!

 
Maybe not so deserted! In this pic I was running back to my friends because a large group of army dudes were walking in my direction.  Should have smiled widely and posed a bit more!

 
Then we suddenly had the idea of...... posing and focusing on our shoulders. HAHAHA. MANY failed shots but I shall torture you with these few for now.

 
 
 
 Take 987654321. There are really hilarious ones but I don't know if Dia and Ning are gonna be ok with you all looking!
 
Ok I'll stop posting those!! But seriously, there's something about just a litttttleeee big of shoulder baring! :P



Look at the pic above! My photography skills are the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
 Oh and there was this music event that day, and this really cute boy came up and told us that we couldn't use flash photography there. Super polite. Made us paiseh about taking so many photos. Hahaha. So cute eh. If I ever have a kid I'd wnat my kid to be just like him lololol.


Went to Starbucks for superlicious drinks, and played UNO. Check out the state of her cards!!


Okay bye!! I don't know wtf is with my expression but that's the only pic I've got hahahaha

And I need to rant! why I'm at home when I'm supposed to be in school!! For the first time in my 1.5 years in school. You know we have e-learning based classes right? Not totally e-learning, but 1/2 tutor taught and 1/2 e-learning. I don't know if I'm right, but tutors are actually supposed to TEACH in class.

Maybe it's because all the other tutors I've met did that. But this one... she says our sessions are not supposed to be about teaching, just supposed to be for asking questions!!! And classes always end like, in an hour!

Once, I even had to travel 3 hours travelling to and from school for a stupid session I didn't even learn anything from! And one student was late for 40 minutes. But the time he arrived.... the very useless class ended already!!

OMG pleaseeee don't let me get her next semester!

Photo of the Week - Flying into the Sunset


Pretty sunset outside my house. So pretty even my cheapo camera can do it justice. Hahaha.
I don't know why people only notyice beautiful sunsets when they're overseas, and take like a trillion photos. Sunsets here seem just fine. Perhaps even nicer!!

Though it's not like I have the patience to sit on the beach and stare at the sunrise/sunset.

The day my $10 almost floated away together with Karma the Bitch

Today, I was heading out for lunch when I saw a belt wriggling in the water, looking very much like a snake. I whipped out my phone to take a pic because I thought it was hilariously silly that someone actually managed to drop her belt in the water. Little did I know that What Goes Around really does Come Around, because just then, my $10 note slipped out and  fluttered, landing lightly, slowly, but surely, into the depths of doom water. FML.


A bit long for an FML (check out fmylife.com) story, but still worth your time, hahaha :P
Everything happened in slowwwwwww moooooooootion. Fortunately, I managed to reach into the water to rescue my $10 in the nick of time! :D The $10 was the plastic-ky kind. Heng arrrrrr. If it's the $50 paper one I confirm heart pain. Heart pain + Tak Glam because I had to lean over the ledge in my skirt.

10 hours later, I'm still in shock. Because... I managed to (magically) squeeze through this teeny weeny gap to retrieve my 血汗钱!!! AND before the current washed it to the centre of the... pond! Now I know how The Moment of Triumph felt for the Olympic gold medalists!


And if you can't see exactly how teeenyyyyyy it is, here's a rough guage. This is my handphone pouch. Which is about.. erm... 14cm. And yes, you're spot on. I'm feeling pretty smug about it :P


Here's another pic of the 'snake'. And it really did look like a water snake, swimming swimming along. haha.


Today, I learnt a lesson, and I will never poke fun at others again. Ever!! Ok bye I've got school tomorrow and no, Miss Bitch, this photo ain't photoshopped. You really should learn The Art of Angling. But then again, you're so one-dimensional, there's a sky-high chance it won't work for you!

Photo of the Week - Flowers and Dreams

And FYI, this flower only blooms at certain times of the day.

And I'd really, really like to have a new camera. Those I can camwhore shamelessly with. Hahaha.
These days, I have so many dreams, enough time, and yet so little willpower. But then again, this blog's growing, and everyday when I get home, I get so very excited to check my email. Small steps, yeah, but at least I don't feel so invisible anymore. I asked for this, I got it, and I need to prove I'm worth it! :)

And my to-do list....... Well maybe next time!
