guilt

my aunt told me that my guardian has been keeping fish in the chiller more than a week before cooking them instead of keeping the fish in the freezer.

I got curious. I asked my guardian where she kept her fish in the fridge, since she was serving fish for dinner today.

She went berserk.

she just continuously nagged and nagged and complained and shouted and went bitching around at me....

I wore my headphones and listened to my lossless audio collection on my iPod... 35% volume instead of my usual 20%... [35% is the typical level when i'm on the MRT]

Why would she nag at me and tell me not to eat her fish if there's nothing wrong? obviously, she is guilty.

guilty as charged.

and mom, dad, thanks for the iPod and headphones. It makes me a better conductor and my aunt a more retarded, off-beat and off-pitch singer... either that or i visualise she's justin timberlake singing 'sexyback'... so realistic...

daronfiles' 1st anniversary coming...

2 Aug 07 marks "da ron files on blogger"'s 1st anniversary... so you have been warned...

Let's just hope my blog doesn't die between now & then.... you know what happened to yahoo photos, right???

speaking of "da ron files"... whatever happened to my old blog???

i've set my aim... i'm gonna work for it, now...

i've decided.

I think i have the potential to go further from what or where I am now...

so, i've decided...

I want to go to Victoria Junior College for my Tertiary Education.

I've realised that if I want to go further, there are things I have to change. Enough said. There are just certain things that have to change.

I have not mentioned why. So do not misinterpret me and publicly dec;are my message. What I said, I said. No criticisms.

Just to answer the question...

The questions were...
a) What is MY index number?
b) Who was sharing a seat...
i) during the exam?
ii) during the checking of papers?

The answers.... (no prizes for guessing right)

a)
31... those in 3SA would have a higher chance of knowing a bit more than the others. But if yo have access to a 3SA class list or if you were bo-liao enough to check online learning or ask my classmates, then this question is not too tough.

b)i)
Nobody. Dimwits would have guessed somebody by now...

b)ii)
err... nobody either. We just had one extra seat for someone whose index is between 43 and 31...


k... that was kinda lame...

here's another trivia question.

3) How many periods (.) have I used since I started this blog? Exclude those from deleted posts and drafts. Just archived and current posts only.

The person who guesses this right will get to know the number of dots i've used in my posts... Coz i really dunno....

update from last night:

besides that, I'm at school now... feeling kinda depressed about my results... none of my subjects were 90% or more... and my HCL was a huge flunk (read me post from yesterday)

well, i guess this is part of Sec 3 life, eh?

k.. getting bored now... what shld i do? hmm...

P.s.: i was kinda right abt a MacBook update... no LED screens or Santa Rosa Centrino Pro/Duo thingy... just same price for better goodies and out-of-the-box 802.11n support, i guess... (no need for a stinking enabler @ $3.50. That's retarded microtransactions and a waste of bandwidth...)

UPDATE: my mistake. you still need the 802.11n enabler. not free... and not capable out-of-the-box.

Apple Store down... hmm...


This was what i saw when i tried to get to the Apple Online Store... K, now you know what i do during my spare time...

anyway, im predicting LED backlit screens or MacBooks... MacBook Pros included...

Well, who knows? maybe a design layout update to the store?

Maybe OS X Leopard? Maybe iPhone???

hmm... Still waiting...

apparently, im alkaline...

here's d mid year exam marks which i have so far...

EL: 64.5%
A Math: 88.75% or 71/80
E Math: 88%
Chem: 80% or 68/85
Hist: 60% or 30/50
Bio: 74% (unconfirmed)

HCl: 44.75%

I know that was expected... or surprising... or whatever u thought...

anyway, f*** larh... i failed HCl MYE 2 yrs in a row... that's not very good... and worse still, i have to sit for my 'O's this year... must get A or i have to drop... 怎么办呢?我真的不知所措... seriously.

anyway, i think i'm getting lots of weird patterns from this MYE... allow me to elaborate...

E Math: i had 44 for section A and 45 for section B... but there was an addition mistake on the teacher's part, so it became from 44+45=89 to 44+44=88...

read the numbers... 44...44...88... means anything? and how did i get d same marks for 2 papers? that's quite rare...

then there's EL...

i had this combo for paper 1: 20/30 for Section A, 22/30 for Section B... similar to Reuben (index 30, sitting next to me.)
for paper 2, i had: 14/25 for Section A, 15.5 for section B... same as Jasper Yee (index 43, sitting on my left)

my overall for el in % was 64.5%... the same as John Sng... sitting somewhere in my row (dun really know his index)

now, if this was a maths olympiad Q... and the tables were arranged such that there were 6 in a row arranged according to index no. in a zigzag pattern... and Jasper is sitting on the seat of index 42...

a) What is MY index number?
b) Who was sharing a seat...
i) during the exam?
ii) during the checking of papers?

The answers will come eventually as an omen...

o, btw, Jasper Yee got d same History marks as me... what abt. Art???

Embassy staffs are b****y, c*cky, rude, and ignorant f**ls

SPOILER: this is a RANT. rating: PG.

I've had it.

Those fu**ing embassy people think they can ridicule us people into thinking we are idiots...

well, screw.

last week, i tried to go to the Italian Embassy in Singapore to submit my applications for a Visa. Guess what? before I can even get to the consular counter, I was rudely slapped (verbally) by a lady who thinks I'm a baby. your stinking criterias for minors applying a visa never stupid-simply mention "Parents must be with the child at time of application". No. Instead, we, the humans of this dying EARTH, must waste money on one stupid embassy just to go back and forth to find out that you forgot something... So much for saving the Earth... Fuc* the whole Al Gore "Global Warming" thing. Nobody cares, apparently. Especially not the Embassies. Waste of paper, fossil fuel, and energy.

Energy effeciency = -290%

Not only that larh...

Back in Indonesia, my parents tried to get the Italian Embassy there to get the blockheads to make a letter of approval to "approve their PMS-ed son to get to Italy. Erm... no. the fuc*ed-up security guard told them "Closed. Closed F***ING CLOSED!". heh... no, screw you, security. you uneducated, illiterate person... btw, he's probably from the Indonesian Police Force...

After that, my parents got in to see the consular. they checked the things my dad had... short of one document: the Wedding cert...

whoa fuc*... my bro already checked with the Embassy Consular staff that you need certain specific documents. Was "Weding cert" on the list? err.... NO... is the embassy asking for the document? err... YA!


This is a common cry from me to all the embassies out there.

STOP MAKING FUCKED-UP CONFUSIONS ON NON-POLITICS CIVILIANS! YOU EXPECT US TO READ YOUR MIND? S.O.P.S ARE S.O.P.S. STOP CHANGING! OPERATE BY YOUR STANDARD PROCEDURE. STANDARD. YOU KNOW WHAT THE HELL IS STANDARD? it's something you guys don't have. Let's ask Google what it is...

Standard: "established or widely recognized as a model of authority or excellence"

and by the way, IF YOU'RE SO CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY'S ECONOMY, AND THE WORLD'S GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSION, DO SOMETHING. STOP WATING THE WORLD'S RESOURCES. YOU ARE SCREWING THE WORLD INTO A DARKER FUTURE THANKS TO YOUR RETARDATION ACTIONS (yes, the world is retarding coz of u)

and please larh, minor? under 21? we're more abled than you are. We know more than you. it's proven that adults (especially non-teachers) tend to forget all that they learnt in school. Bet you can't remember the valency of Magnesium, or the parts of an iPod (inside and outside, not just the UI features like the click wheel).

geek bitching here

err, bensee, thanks for insipring me to be so vulgar. really helps in calming the mind...

and Blogger, thanks for making blogging free. and thanks for hosing my blog even after this post.

Tim O'Reilly's Blogging Code ot Ethics???

http://blogging.wikia.com/index.php?title=Blogger%27s_Code_of_Conduct&oldid=2670

The code of conduct... as according to ORLY... as paraphrased by me for a more youthful generation to understand...

1. we wrote what we post... we may restrict comments on our blog.

2. We say anything online, only the things we dare to say in person.

3. If there's disagreements, we discuss privately before we respond publicly.

4. If someone is bullying someone, we will call d authorities...

5. comments are allowed if we can know ur email add... n ur privacy to others can be kept... but the blog owner will still know who u r... and that's all that matters.

6. we ignore the badly behaved "criminals of this domain".

7. We encourage blog hosts to enforce more vigorously their terms of service. <--too political to paraphrase anyway...

happy reading!
