went to see the producers on friday with hannah and her friends and steve. was funfun.

yesterday i went to richmond new year's festival. that was nice. i think the whole point of it was to eat. and eat i did XD
although i have to admit, the music was horrendous and way too loud :P

hmmm, what else... ok, quizzes... :P

it seems that i'm more of an unbeliever than i love food:

2:23 am - funfunfun
went into the city on wed with phengers, thanny, and anika. mae wasn't able to come even though she was the one who organised it ^_^;

went to max brenner's, then took some photos in the city... man, they sure squashed us together...
take a look at one of the photos here:

Don't we look good?Collapse )

the scan's not very good coz
a) we chose matte instead of glossy
b) the pictures are kinda small
c) my scanner's really really old

walked around a bit then went to exhibition and took more photos ^_^. this time with phengers' camera... now if she'd get around to emailing them to me...

was a fun day.... even though it was originally planned to be a st.kilda/beach day. XD

hello everyone!!!

hmm yes, i had a busybusy week last week. (yes, i know it's a bit late to do a summary of last week).
- mon - well... bummed around

- tues - went marching with han and han (ehehe). was really fun. got to talk to princes hill teachers again, which was nice. got to talk to teish for about half a min before... things... happened. (i am so vague).

- wed - went shopping with cousins (hannah, annie) (i know! shopping!). bought a sleeveless top and they bought me two pairs of earrings as late bday pressies. saw a gorgeous 4-leaf clover pendant (real clover covered in glass with a silver frame) at morning glory (which, btw, is having a closing down sale), but was $25 so didn't buy it :(. syndicate is closing down! *cries* (27th nov is the last day in the city). so we had to go in and try stuff on XD. tried on a shortish powder blue dress that i've been oggling for ages (classic upper body, black waist ribbon, black frills underneath the dress... i kinda think it's like slightly gothic with pop undertones?). guess what? it doesn't stay up very well because it has no strings!!! so 1. you'd need an ample chest, 2. you'd need to choose a size that fits really tight, and 3. you'd look like a skank. so yes, such a pity *sigh*. yeah... we wandered around the city, talked, all good.

- thurs - went to yum cha with mum, aunt, and hannah's family (minus the two rugrats). yumyumyumyum. ended up buying said pendant after han's mum haggled it down to $20 :P.

- fri - sleep, net, and lots of gazing at new trinkets.

that's it!

P.S - did you know that cheez tv doesn't exist any more? they have something called get toasted or something with these two presenters (girl/guy) that look like hi-five for tweens.

current mood: loved

hello pplz!!! lolz.

had two exams on mon and am having another one tomorrow. think i managed to pass my business exam which seemed like a feat on mon (my friends can attest to the hysterical state i was in). um.... not much else in my life except that i am soooo looking forward to the 7th. um... what else? i've accepted/embraced the fact that i'm a complete net junkie? XD.

anyhoo, the song i loove atm is "Poupée de Cire, Poupée de Son". anyone else heard it? ahh, french pop.

pretty much that's all the news i can think of right now :P. I've translated about half of the lyrics but some parts are shocking. anyone know enough french to help? lolz.

2:26 am - Fun Facts about Tram's family
"It is a sighting of one of the rarest creatures on this planet... Engineering Nerd Tram Nguyen!"

um, yes...

spent last week doing my 2000-word business report... which meant 3 nights of 2 hours sleep. stephen was right though, it felt SO much better after i handed it in. by that point didn't really care about what mark i got coz i was exhausted to the point that anything anyone said to me went in one ear and out the other.

went to the show on sat with uni friends. was ok, but i keep forgetting *why* i hate spinny-twirly-upsidedown rides... until i go on them again. *sigh* i'll never go on "the rock" again. bought willy-wonka showbag and betsy gave me an m&m one :). was so painful to buy anything there coz it was so costly... spent $60 that day.

2 Fun Facts i recently found out:

1. was not my mum's pregnancy. apparently she had miscarriage a few days after she heard my grandpa get sick. it was about 2 months old which means that fingers and toes would have started to appear. she buried it under one of the fruit trees in the garden (back when we had a massive plot... a few acres i think). oh, and think small, people, thumbsized foetus. never told my grandparents coz they (parents) were worried about grandpa's health. odd, to think i might have had an older brother or sister. i'd like to have an older brother. sometimes. :D.

2. back in the ancient days, my dad's side had the family name of tran. apparently there were quite a few high-ranking officials in the family line during the time of the Tran Dynasty. they lived near the capital which back then was Hue. when the nguyen came into power they fled to the north and changed their name to nguyen to escape prosecution.

so, there you are. felt like something i could post about.

149: Dragonite - An extremely rarely seen marine
Pokemon. Its intelligence is said to match that
of humans.

Of the Original 150, Which Pokemon Are You?
brought to you by Quizilla

ahahahaha! beat that you magikarp/gyarados! i shall destroy you! mwahahahahahaha! *coughs* *looks cute*

don't have much else to say...

~*~Result nr 3~*~

Your power is: The ability to fly

Explanation: This powers speaks pretty
much for itself. Though you don't need wings
for this power,you can fly anyway. Some people
may consider it as telekinesis since they can
also fly, but you can't make material things
move like they can. This ability could be a
relaxing activity when you want to get away
from everyday troubles. Also it is good when
sneaking upon an enemy since it makes no sound.
When going over to the "dark side"
the power could be used to harrass and break
into building through windows etc.
You are quite similar to this power since you
like to have your head in the clouds.
Supernatural things amuse while ordinary life
does not. If your daydreaming has gotten a
little too far you might be zooned out all the
time, even when you are having a conversation.
Your desires and/or goals tend to be
unrealistic even if you know those would
probably never happen. Travelling is something
you would be interested in doing since seeing
exotic scenery fits with your fantasies of
escaping your plain life. You can also have
some creative ability (writer, playing an
instrumen etc) that interests you.
Negative aspects: The whole reason you
may be escaping life could be fear of being let
down by it. So if that would come to happen,
and an important dream had been crushed you
could get depressed.

i had a very weird/scary experience today. on the train home this weird guy is making donald duck noises behind me, i turn around to look (stupid thing to do, in hindsight). he jumps over to the seat next to me and introduces himself as justin. i go 'hi, i'm tram'. he leans over and gives me a hug and i'm like wtf?! um... er... *panics*. he's sitting there chatting to me, drapes his arm over me... and i'm like um... err... shit...

you know, i can't seem to lie in these situations. it would really help me if i could. he asks if i have a bf and i should have said, "yes! now leave me alone and stop hugging me!" but noooo, i had to say nooo...

so the conversation's going on and he starts saying how cute he thinks i am... *panic meter rises*. the guy doesn't take the hints i'm dropping for him to stop touching... and then he starts talking about his sex life with his ex gf! wtf?!!!!!! and then i find out he lives in reservoir!!! *cries*.

we're off at reservoir and i finally have a good idea in my head to say that i'm getting picked up from the station. i pull out my phone and sit at the station until he disappears from view. so yes. *sighs*

on another note, i did a quiz!

12:24 am - woo hoo! and she posts another one!
hello everybody! (hello tram nguyen!)

my god, my posts are few and far between...

i spent 2 days, make that 3, *3 days* doing a lit review that was meant to take me 2 weeks. my laziness knows no bounds i must admit. handed it in and went *yay!*

um... oh! for those who don't know (er... tom?)... i have a new computer! hooray!
pentium 4, 200gb hard drive, 1gb ram, dual-layer dvd burner, new speakers and a subwoofer... ooh, am also saving up to get a 19-inch lcd monitor... :P

found a new anime i looooove. it's called naruto. it's about a kid named naruto who has a fox demon sealed inside him, and is aspiring to become top ninja of his hidden village. i can watch divx files now! it's sooooo wonderful! although not good for study purposes... my cousin annie is dl seasons 1 and 2 of sailor moon for me and i am anxiously waiting for them. :D

i suck at programming, but have no direction in life whatsoever so shall stick with it...
hannah, you said you'd email me with details about sat night....

3:19 pm - A month! A whole month!
i'm going to vietnam! i'm going to vietnam! i'm going to vietnam! *ahem*

yes, it is now official. i will be boarding a plane for vietnam on the 24th dec, and shall not return until the 22nd jan. :D. am deliriously happy with this news, as han is also going with me. i can taste the coconut juice and see the crystal blue waters already XD.

musn't forget to bring the camera or the cable... um... stephen, what's the site that you use to put your pics up? i might try it... or should i use yahoo? um... hmm, it seems i'm lost for words atm. XD.

erm... last friday met up with khy at school to go to the city, but was ambushed by ms. forster and ended up talking to yr 10s about vce. realised that i'd forgotten a lot of things about vce. also just remembered this morning that we get our results on monday. monday! don't know if i can be stuffed going back to school to swap yr books, since my one doesn't have a colour page :'(. team america was hilarious... but disgusting, yes, that it was. we had kfc which was yummyyummy. all in all it was a great day catching up with khy.

saturday went to han's bday sleepover thingie. stephen did not come *looks at steve* but we had fun. pizza and disney movies :P. i still remember most of the songs. gave her the calendar and she was over the moon about it. although i still question her friends' decision to buy her a hp figurine -_-;. we had fun... and her friends are nice, not as crazy as her XP.

hopefully i can go shopping with annie tomorrow, so she can give me manga and anime :D. yay! i'm so glad she has fast internet.

um... that's all for today.

bye everyone!

ps. don't you think this is a *little* over the top?:
