american gods

i haven't stayed up to finish a book in a loong time, but american gods was awesome!

however, i'm the type of person who doesn't sleep well if i'm excited before bedtime, so it took a lot of self-restraint not to call anybody as i laid on my bed with ghostly images in my head

no nightmares =)

weather is freaking hot these days. i have to shower 3 times a day and switch on the air conditioner-- i don't even do that during the summer-summer months!

eunice will be going on holiday with grandma and uncle boon to cambodia soon. i want to take advantage of parents' odd guilt that i wasn't invited [for no other reason than because my surname is not tan] and ask them to let me go to japan.

is $5k inclusive of airfare, insurance, accomodation, food and whatnot expensive?

i swear, the tan family is super happening lately-- cambodia in november, hong kong in december

i wanna go hong kong badly, badly but not with my relatives [not that i was invited]. i can't seem to find anybody i'd like to go on holiday with.

dad has that mix of fierce pride and.. i don't know, a sort of sad love? that parents exhibit when their kids are excluded from something. parents kept asking me if i want to join them, dad even went, 'chin up, you're a lim! your dad will sponsor you!'

so of course i grabbed the moment to ask, 'since you're already planning to spend money on me, can i go to usa instead?'

the answer was the usual, 'noo you're too young, bla bla bla..'

what lah =.=''
