I am tempted

28 02 2009

juskawaime was tempted to tag friends to each profile characters in the photo below…. but in deep down, perhaps, I dun have so many different personalities of friends that fit all these characters…

Or I was afraid that I may get bashed or scorned by them for tagging them into those bewildered characters… hahaaa

Let me ponder more and scan through my facebook friends to identify who is who…

juskawaime may fall under these categories:

  • The one who always swears .. Yeah #$%^&*(*@#$%^ Oppps =p
  • The Grumphy one *Hmmpphhh*
  • The one with bad memory… yes.. STM (Short Term Memory or Selective-Term Memory)
  • The Drama Queen >.<
  • The Funny guy *Hoohhoooo*

How abt you??

Chasing Pavement

27 02 2009

Nothing in particular.. just thought wanna share this post when I read from his blog…

Should i give up, Or should i just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere, Or would it be a waste?
Even If i knew my place should i leave it there?

Should i give up,
Or should i just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere

JLPT3 result!

26 02 2009

Yo Yo …. I knew I will get my JLPT3 result this week.. based on experience of receiving my JLPT4 result last year around this time too.. last week of Feb

Prayed before opening the envelope sent by JCS and YES……..

juskawaime PAASSSSEEDDDD!!! WoooHHHoooooo

————– Results ————-

Writing.Vocabulary もじ。ごい 文字。語彙: 64/100

Listening ちょう かい 聴解: 83 / 100

Reading.Grammar とっかいぶんぽう 読解。文法: 155 / 200

Total: 302 / 400  (75.5%)

————————————-

Overall a de-provement (opposite of improvement! is there such a word? =p) of result from last year, my JLPT4 results, where I scored 78% .. but who cares!! ;p

I passed my JLPT3!!! And that is all that matters… =) Yes, I am glad I am in the 77% of candidates that passed!

Coz I cannot bear the thought of re-taking my JLPT3.. *Arrrghhh* What I heard from the some of the candidates last year is the JLPT3 of 2008 was easier compared to past years papers! I felt it was not that difficult too.. Not very easy.. but at least it was not very tough!! Thanx God!! So most prob this year 2009 will be a difficult paper for JLPT3? One year easy, one year difficult???

Thank you Lord for your grace & mercy!

juskawaime is just very very happy!! WeeeEEEeeee!!

Hope those who took JLPT papers last year also have flying colours =)

Oh some statistic on the JLPT to share, extracted from JCS: 

One note that scare me is the no. of candidates who failed their JLPT1 and JLPT2… More than 50% failed! Gosh… I think I should just stop at JLPT3.. =p

Asian Civilization Museum Visit

24 02 2009

My fren, Jo, has a goal for Yr 2009.. so she wrote this email invitation to us..

Hello all,
I’m planning a series of outings to visit different parts of Singapore in upcoming weeks. I hope these upcoming outings/ trips/ visits will help us to get to know more about Singapore, to enjoy Singapore and to explore places that we may never been before. This is my first trial, I hope to stay regular on this.

and so we are there in Asian Civilization Museum (ACM) for a visit (though not full force) on 15th Feb 2009.

On this day, we also attended the special programme held in ACM – Konnichiwa Sunday! Japanese Music, Crafts and Storytelling. Jo was very happy with the トトロ / Totoro (theme) songs played in the Special Programme – Konichiwa Sunday.. We enjoyed the plays by Ueno Koshuzan, Shakuhachi Master.

We also learnt how to play the Shakuhachi.. but I could not blow a tune.. Only Jo can!! Clever her!!

And there was also Origami! by JAS Origami Group, so juskawaime took the chance and took photos with them and a handsome boy…

Though ACM is not purely abt Singapore (it is abt the whole Asia – culture, history, religions), we did enjoy some of the video clips and the story behind certain practices, and was amazed at some knowledge sharing. A good 2hrs ++ spent! =)

Have you visited ACM before? It is just 5mins walk from Raffles Place MRT.
