After much preparation, the young self-proclaimed Emperor of The Han Dynastory is now serving a full-time mission to the UK with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

He will return in 2014.


Welcome to the Han Dynastory!

As I am now serving a full-time mission with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I have left this blog under the stewardship of a family member, who may post updates on how I'm doing as he/she sees fit.

Enjoy your stay!

I admit that I am amused by almost anything, from lame jokes to the five-coloured highlighters frequently given away as freebies, but I still feel like sharing the two articles below.;_ylt=Alqa0VgcbfX0y6dajASV_6b9xg8F;_ylu=X3oDMTE2cDJuZXQ2BHBvcwM1BHNlYwN5bl9mZWF0dXJlZARzbGsDbG92ZWR1cmluZ3Ro,8599,1606692-2,00.html

I am not amused, however, by random people on Facebook adding me just because we have friends in common. Especially if we only have 4 friends in common, of whom none of them have ever had more than a minute's conversation with me.

I managed to clock in at 10min 20sec for my 2.4km NAFA run today! It's the first A for 2.4 I've gotten since coming to Singapore. Now if I could just do 8 chin-ups (which is like twice my current average) I will get a Gold for NAFA (assuming I do just as well in all the other four stations as I normally do), with which I can do... wait for it... nothing! I'm not even obliged to go for National Service in Singapore. At most, I can run around with an inflated ego proclaiming to the world that I rock. Yeah.

Incidentally, I calculated that the barest minimum to get a Gold for NAFA is 3 Cs and 3 Bs. Yes, it is possible to get a Gold for NAFA without a single A. Good luck everyone!

Rare Respite

I just realized that right after posting this, if I go to sleep straight away, it will be the first time I'm able to sleep before midnight this whole week.

I watched an old Studio Ghibli Production called Kiki's Delivery Service while completing my Geography essay earlier. The beautifully done background scenery in the cartoon brought fond memories of my highway trips between Singapore and KL. Sitting next to a window on a bus with the curtain open, gazing across the open space where the sky cleanly meets the horizon, it is always a perfect moment to take a deep breath, put my troubles at the back of my head, and anticipate the opportunity to meet Simba once more.

And then doze off. Perfect time to catch up on sleep too.

Simba Dearest

I did the following as a Chinese homework assignment, but since it's about dear Simba I thought I'd put it up here for future reference =) Simba will be turning twelve this year, and is still as active as ever. I can't wait to see him in June! He probably won't be looking forward to the obligatory bath he'll be getting from me when I'm back in KL heheh.

There Is No Justice In This World

Especially when you're feeling hardworking and decide to tackle that bit of homework.

Then end up staring at a few horizontal lines that begin to mock you with the fact that there's nothing between them but the whiteness of manuscript paper.

And so, a mindless improvisation of illogical motifs ensues on a tortured Baby Grand.

Speaking of tortured, I nearly forgot to remove the chopsticks from the piano after experimenting for Techniques class ideas XD

I haven't been on Blogger for so long that I was momentarily stunned by the new buttons that appeared on my dashboard.

I've been wanting to post something of significant social meaning that is dear to my heart recently. Perhaps it is a spillover effect from GP lessons, but I keep finding other things to do on Sundays. Like paying off my sleep debts. I am still so fascinated by the fact that you can go for a GP class, have a magnificent discussion with the class that leads to practically nowhere, and still come out feeling pleased like you've learnt something significant.

Speaking of GP classes, I accidentally wrote a 70 word sentence in an essay. I apologized to my teacher haha.

"Let me introduce you to something very useful called the full stop."

Sleep is as hard to catch as a car flung from the edge of a cliff.
