i never did like crowds, thats 1 of the reasons why i was looking forward to australia. back in sg, i wouldnt think twice to make a big circle and taking more time in the process to get to my destination if it means i could avoid the interchange [my home estate's interchange is like mini orchard road, i tell you].
i would rather walk than take the service bus [saving money and at the same time avoiding the bus crowds]
i'm not the sort to go party or "chiong" at clubs, only to return stinking as if you hadn't bathe in 10 days or smelling like stale cigarettes.
the college graduation night is approaching in another 2 months, everyone in school is hyped up. "what you wearing for prom ah?" or "which table you sitting at?" or "die lah, haven't get gown. no time! no time!"
i seriously dont get the hype and excitment over that event. whats the big deal? Most of them tell me stuff like "you pay $70 for the prom already, you know?" and "you can't graduate if you don't go, you know?"
what rubbish indeed, i haven't been to my primary, secondary and poly graduation nights and i've still graduated. Also, by "trying" to save that $70 for the prom, one has to spend a hundred AUD or so in preparation for the event. Now, you tell me if you have ended up saving or spending more $$$ ? I feel that it's penny wise, pound foolish.
Bottom line is: I feel necessary to give attention to friends if i'm going out with them, 'cause otherwise i find it pretty rude to ignore them. Respect is important. But at the same time, i find it tiring to always entertain. Hence, i think i'm better off alone.
why you enevr visit my blog one. =PPPPPP
But yes, sometimes I feel better off alone. Sometimes.
loyal friendship is never based on something as superficial is a prom night. crowds sometimes have this effect of drowning the intimacy for meaningful conversation.

don't know how the tradition for prom started... Gave the students a chance to dress up, an alternative to the usual jeans and t-shirt etc combi. :-)
You don't have to dress up or anything. Just go lor since you paid liao, with soemthing presentable of course. :-)
Actually.. wanted to type more but i kip losing my train of thots... Same thing happens in school also. Sigh.
meow: eh..black tie event leh. have to wear evening gown. haha another reason not to go for it. over in this country, formal is formal. unlike sg. keke
