Wishes on The Wall.
Monday, January 3, 2011

Apparently. I don't understand which wall to embed... LOL.
So. I'll embed. Both.

And I was dumb. That. I didn't read the instructions. And I put in the stuff in my WALLWISHER.

So. I'll copy and paste from what I post-its-it in my WALLWISHER.

1. What is some useful features of wall wisher?

Wall wisher is like Twitter, just the interface is different. And the services they provide with you are also different
Haha. I could easily ''double-click'' and write a note, add an image, audio or video link
I can also move my ''wall-wish'' to any where on the page, until the whole page gets cramped!
Well then, you can also shift posts to.. ANYWHERE in the page.
Post-its, post-its, EVERYWHERE! Its ''electronic post-its'', lets save the Earth..!
Wait, we're still wasting electricity. LOL

Yippe :) I can build AS MANY WALLS as I want! I just need some more concrete... :P
Others can also post on your wall! (According to your wall settings)

2. What are some limitations of wall wisher?

There are only a certain amount of themes. And I. Don't. Like. That. No. Creativity. To. Make. New. Ones.
And, security settings (like who can view your wall) are limited to. EVERYONE. Or ONLY ME. Yeah.
You can't set it like, block somebody or something.
Can we ''follow'' other people? No. Sorry. LoL.

3. In what way you think this could be used in your learning activity or CCA? Give an example.


I'll go for CCA. A wall can be made for a specific CCA, and members of the CCA can post stickies, to announce for like : THERE'S FLOORBALL PRACTICE (Thats the CCA I wanna go to) Or... THERE'S NO PRACTICE THIS WEEK! :):)


Digital. Collage.

(Please note : The orange with a b thingy is Plurk. The W is Wordpress. The blue and green people is MSN. And don't care about etc. I mean etc is as in there are more, but I forgot... LOL)

Maps. Where I've been to this Holidays. (Pt2)
Sunday, January 2, 2011

Note : These are just a few of the places I've been to in Japan.. :)

View Places I've been to in a larger map

Short and Sweet description.

(PS: They are not in order... Just random)
1. Universal Studios and Disney Land.
I had my first ever roller coaster ride in Disneyland. It's called Space Mountain. Super dark inside! It was so cold at Disney Land! The wind was ripping our faces apart. Luckily, it was sunny, so at least we had some ''heat''.
Crazy outdoor ride at Universal Studios...! I had my worst minute on a roller coaster (LOL), it was even colder than Disney Land!!! D:
Yep, my family and I also ate alot of things (ice-cream, hot dog, popcorn...) there, took a many other couple of rides (some were boring), i had a fun day photo taking too!.
Overall, I lurveee both parks! And we spent one whole day per park. :)

2. Mount Fuji.
Well, since my family and I were on a group tour, the whole group rode on a bus as the driver brought us to the FIFTH STATION! The tour guide was practically rambling on, until he saw many of us dozing off, and he keep his mouth shut... (lol)
All of us were VERY LUCKY, and FORTUNATE, because, it is rare to be able to be on the fifth station of Mount Fuji. (About... 2000+ metres?)Especially if the weather was bad, we wouldn't even have got onto the 3rd station... On the very special day, it was really VERY. CLOUDLESS. (Actually most of the days were, except for the last two days of the tour.)
What we did mostly there was to take photos and (thank GOD we could go up there) and. MUM. thought that the ice was snow. -.-""

3. Kinkakuji (Golden Pavilion)
Photo taking, of course. That photo was by my brother. There were many visitors there too. And I didn't like the walking path. Too much ''shells...?" (What do you call the, what?)
There were some people throwing coins for luck or something like that at designated places, and I saw two 'charm stuff' shops. When we ended the walk, I went to the toilet (And I was disgusted.) Haha.

(Above these stuff are like brief reviews too lorhs.)

Google Maps gives us the travel time, concise addresses, and stops, etc. , in a very systematic form, and is easy to understand. There are a few suggested routes, the map itself shows the path from home to school.
You can also choose different routes like by car, walking or by public transport, and usually, by car, we'll get a expressway route.
For walking short distances (for other people who live nearby their schools), Google Maps also give you instructions to walk where ever on Earth you are going. ;)

(No way I'm gonna walk to Clementi Ave 6)

Google Maps is useful, but, it is not accurate, because of longer waiting time for buses, jams.
Picking walking may be a bit dangerous, if you try it, because there might be missing pathways.
Driving by car, there might be ERP.. LOL ($$$)

By anyways, Google Map rocks. :):):)

(Now try China as the starting location and put Japan as the destination. Click Walking directions. Look for No. 249. Ok.... And just scroll down at a medium speed.
I guess Google Maps IS a bit too.... forgetful about immigration?)


Not my First time
Saturday, January 1, 2011

Since I've created blogs and posted many times before, creating another one was an easy task for me.
However, I was trying to find a blog-skin to ''decorate'' my blog, and I couldn't find the perfect one. But in the end, I chose this skin.... (Temporary. I might totally edit one whole skin when I find one layout that is super nice)
Before I even knew how to blog, I wrote diaries, (And I mean. Pen. And. Paper. No electricity.)
Blogging is a way to communicate with others through your posts, and blog posts can be in your perspective, or in others. (In short : Blogging can help others understand you better.)
We can blog about school matters (to raise awareness or whatever.), or at home matters, anything.
Its up to you ;)
I love blogging because I can easily access my past memories with just a few clicks. But. Sometimes, I just don't have the mood to blog (like now).

I chose this picture because I was originally sad and disappointed that I got a Waiting List, but when I received the Pink S1 Option Form on 25th November 2010, and upon reading that particular sentence: Congratulations. We are pleased to inform you that your application to be admitted under Direct School Admission (DSA) to Secondary One in 2011 has been successful. You are admitted to School Of Science and Technology, Singapore
And so it was :

Disclaimer : This picture may have another meaning. It may mean me (or the other successful applicants), feeling so happy, but to the many other 1500+ hopeful applicants, they were not accepted/rejected. :(
