DND 12′: Fear, A Contestant’s Experience

Written by Zachary Low

Edited by Celine Yeap

The room is cold: the air-conditioning is at full blast. Yasmin, Ashley and Jen are curled up in decidedly unglamorous foetal positions on the floor, seeking whatever warmth they can find in layers of fabric. Alex and Wesley, with makeup already on, are reading their lecture notes. Jack is wearing a singlet, sleeping in a chair, oblivious to the cold. Isaac entertains the rest of the world. While Mel and Celine are having their makeup done, I mentally slap myself for not bringing anything to do.

Pageant girls (spot Yasmin and Ashley behind the chairs) and me, foaming hard.

Two hours later and I am regretting my decision to let everyone else get their makeup done first – I suffer the ignominy of having nine other people laughing at my pained expression as my face becomes the slightly unwilling canvas of the makeup artist. But a miracle happens and in ten minutes I am the gleeful owner of rust-orange eyebrows and blue eyeshadow. We move backstage and await the beginning of the pageant themed catwalk segment of the evening’s entertainment.

The powers of make up

This is it: DND at last! No more late night dance practices, later night photoshoots, strange games, costume fitting, catwalk training, et cetera. On the 25th of March, as KEVIIans gathered for the annual dinner and dance, I stood backstage, relieved that the entire pageant process would be ending soon.

Life is tough when you’re backstage. You can’t eat the food, for one. When finally released into the main hall, I descended upon the food, inhaling whatever was on my plate. I must admit that the excellent fare was a welcome change from the daily diet that we all enjoy.

No magic show to watch – from backstage you can hear the oohs and aahs of the crowd.

One must wonder what Mitchell is smiling about.

Also, you can’t see Shaam and Ryan strut their stuff as the emcees for the day. Life is tough.

I did, however, enjoy myself immensely in being allowed to prance around like the Mad Hatter.

But DND isn’t just about the show. It’s also about the people in hall. An occasion to dress up and where everyone is licenced to break normal social etiquette: where else can you see Andy Sim wearing pseudo-diapers? At this point one must stop to ponder what walking back to hall in that outfit must have felt like. Other than the slightly disturbing (in addition to the abovementioned example, please also refer yourself to pictures of the winner of the ‘most sexily dressed female’), there was a huge variety of other costumes on display, from chained-up ghosts, MIB agents wielding Nerf guns and Super Soakers, and even a gang of Al-Ameen delivery bikers. I suspect that the rampant photo-taking that was going on had something to do with all this dressing up.

Al-Ameen delivery bikers – did they bring the naan?

Please explain the physics behind your… weapons?

This night of debauchery fun was punctuated by the MAB awards ceremony, which saw Lok Liangxun and Jen Yeh taking home the Freshman and Freshgirl/Freshlady/Freshwoman/Fresh-I-don’t-know-if-there’s-a-specific-term of the Year awards respectively, and Eddie Tan receiving the Outstanding KEVIIan Award, among others. The night’s activities ended with the crowning of our very own Hall King and Queen: Isaac Chay and Ashley Tong of CD Block.

Liangxun - our freshman of the year!

Jen - our freshman (female) of the year!

Ashley and Isaac - Hall Queen and King

As DND concludes and people move out of the ballroom to begin a new round of photo-taking, it becomes a hugely communal activity, a celebration of the friendships forged over the year. Group photos for the different blocks spark off new cries for various CCAs to gather to take more group photos. The lobby of the Kent Ridge Guild House becomes a space in which KEVIIans affirm and immortalize their friendships through the vehicle of a digital camera. A very noisy space, no doubt, but  a space in which a warm, fuzzy feeling manifests itself. Perhaps this is why people indicate their ‘home’ on their Facebook profiles as 1A Kent Ridge Road.

Even amidst the rush and preparation for the proverbial crunch that is the Finals (with a capital F, mind you), I find myself looking forward to going to DND – just another reminder on why hall life is such an enriching experience.

Speaking of enriching, the acquisition of the ‘Mr Sexy’ title also came with a voucher from New Urban Male. One must wonder how these two equate. The prim and proper Zachary Low, confronted with the prospect of entering a NUM store, is at a loss of what to do. Maybe you can help.

DND ’12: Interview with Isaac and Ashley, Block CD

Interviewed by Zachary Low

Edited by Celine Yeap

Today, we find ourselves talking to Isaac Chay and Ashley Tong, CD Block’s very own pageant contestants. Join us as we find out more about what they think of each other, and give us some insights on life in school!

Our CD pageant contestants, Ashley and Isaac

Z: As always, the first question is going to be… tell me about yourselves.

Isaac: I’m in softball, handball, tennis, and also the assistant producer for Hallplay.

Ashley: Marketing, OCIP Laos, and I’m also in NUS Climb (rock climbing).

Previously, Ashley was also overheard saying ‘I rate myself an 11 out of 10.’ That’s some serious belief in your own mojo there. Good stuff!

Z: Very nice. Now, legend has it that Isaac is the object of desire for the girls in this year’s Medicine Year Ones. Ashley, aren’t you worried when you hear knocks on your door at night? Ever received any death threats from jealous doctors-to-be?

Ashley: Oh, I’m not worried at all. Isaac doesn’t want to date M1s: he has a rule on intra-faculty dating.

Isaac nods sagely.

Z: And you know this because?

Ashley: Because I know all of Chay’s deepest, darkest secrets.

Z: And Chay, what do you have to say about this?

Isaac: I’m not the object of desire.

O RLY?!

Ashley: It’s the eyebrows. That’s the real object of desire.

That’s what she said…

Z: So Ash, what’s it like being an Arts student in KE? Ever felt like you were discriminated as part of the minority?

Ashley: People in the science canteen always look at me as if I’m not supposed to be there.

Isaac: She’s the object of desire in Science. Guys look at her like ‘damn, she fly!’

While Ashley is the object of desire for all guys in Science, Chay's eyebrows are THE object of desire (albeit not for his fellow female classmates).

Z: Thanks for clearing things up. So, Chay, are you looking forward to dancing in front of everyone? Going to show the world how you twist?

Isaac: No, no, I can’t do that. I don’t have the moves. But I’ll try.

Ashley (indignantly): Do or do not, there is no try!

The Star Wars fan in me approves.

Z: What’s your greatest source of East Wing pride?

Isaac: Ashley. She motivates me to practice for pageant.

Awww.

Ashley: The people… every night I can knock on someone’s door, knowing that someone will be there for me.

Z: And for our last question: imagine you are a character in a movie and you are facing off with your archenemy. It’s a no-win situation for you, and your enemy is about to make you shuffle off this mortal coil, as Shakespeare so eloquently puts it. What’s the last thing you’re going to say to the camera?

Ashley: Hasta la vista, baby!

Isaac: Mooooooommmmmmy! It’s ooooverrrrrrrr!

And that concludes the second part of our pageant participant interview series. Look out for the next instalment as we begin our journey to the West.

DND ’12: Interview with Jack and Jen, Block AB

Interviewed by Zachary Low

In the first of the pageant contestant interview series, we sit down for a short chat with Jack Neo and Jen Yeh from AB, to find out what makes them tick. Please forgive any interjections by members of the public while the two of them are providing thoughtful answers to the questions posed.

Our AB pageant contestants: Jack Neo and Jen Yeh

Z: So, tell me about youselves.

Jack (lying on the floor): I’m in softball, marketing, hallplay marketing, and a part-time vegetarian.

Note: Jack is also Mr. Science and Mr. Personality!

Jen: I make pancakes.

Jen is also in touch rugby, choir, KE media, hallplay set design…

Celine: She does everything.

Z: So of all the time spent in hall so far, what has been your defining experience?

Jack: When I first moved into hall. It was good. Especially the first night – it was a bit rough, but I liked it.

Jen: That’s hard… (this provokes lots of eyebrow raises from other people). But I’d say Rag. Rag was awesome.

Z: Very nice. And now because I like food, I’m going to ask about it. Jen, what’s your favourite Singaporean food, and why?

Jen: Singaporean food is actually pretty good. (Nods of approval from assembled pageant contestants). But I like nasi lemak…

Z: Why? Because it’s fattening?

Jen: Because the lady who serves it is really nice.

Z: Jack, what do you have to say about Jen’s choice of food?

At this point, we must note that Jack is speechless and unable to provide a coherent answer in response to Jen’s answer on why nasi lemak tastes good. Jen responds indignantly by questioning Jack’s vegetarian orientation, and the ensuing argument breaks into a discussion of their daily diet and monthly expenses.

One must wonder whether there are any trust issues between the two.

Jen and Jack, apparently suffering from some minor trust issues.

Z: Rumour has it that AB block houses many party animals. Is this true?

Jen: No… it’s all in CD. Not AB!

Jack (nodding sagely in agreement): Yup. All the havoc is in CD.

The two of them proceed to elaborate on this. It’s good to see them united on at least one issue.

Z: Jen, what’s your favourite fictional character?

Jen: Peter Pan.

Wesley: Not Jack Sparrow?

Jen: No! Well, Peter Pan can fly and he never grows old.

Alex: Peter Pan never reached puberty.

I encourage you, dear reader, to use your imagination to decipher Jen’s reaction to Wesley and Alex. After all, that’s what Peter Pan would have wanted you to do.

Z: Alright Jack, tell me why any girl should date you. Is it because you’re a physicist with a working knowledge of everything in the universe?

Jack: Because any girl who meets me will be attracted to me, like the Earth is attracted to the Sun – with a large force inversely proportional to the distance squared.

Z: Very good, Jack. I hope you put your working knowledge to good use. And finally, can the two of you tell us whether you can be like Jack and Jill and have adventures on the hill?

Jack: Ask Jen.

Jen: Jack can have adventures by himself.

Our interview with the couple from AB ends with Team Jen beating Team Jack 1-0, courtesy of a last minute verbal burn.

And that concludes our chat with Jack and Jen. Look out for the next in our ‘interview-with-the-pageant-contestant’ series, also known as ‘Zach-will-never-interview-himself’.

interview with the hall queen – lisa!

Writer: Avik & Adriel Leong
Editor: Ong Qing Liang

lisa!

Congrats!”How does this word make you feel when you hear it over and over again, now that you are KE royalty?

Elated :) It feels surreal, somehow. But it definitely feels gooooood haha

 “The Title of King Edward VII hall Queen, 2010 goes to……Lisa!!!!” (screams event emcee) Immediate reaction?

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

On stage were you confident or just a bundle of nerves?

A bundle of nerves, definitely. Songkai said he could feel my hands shaking.

Attention here Attention there, Oh why do people stare…How do you handle post-DnD attention?

Haha I get a little bit shy when people keep referring to me as “Queen” :)

Tell us, how is your pre DnD hall life different from the post DnD one?

Not much different, really.

Has members of the opposite sex showed you more attention post D&D?

Uh, NO.

Why do you think you won?

I honestly can’t think of a reason why. I think I was lucky that night :D

Who were your biggest competitors (Time to say something nice about all the other contestants)

SONGKAI HAHAHAHAHAHA! His “boob-squeeze” gets full marks; he was sexier than all the girls!

Haha okay I thought all of them were incredible. We were all chosen to take part in the pageant for a reason (mine being because Deborah dropped out :p), and this proves that we all had equal potential of winning the title! I think given the amount of effort we all put in (and the time we sacrificed to stay up till the wee hours of the morning just for the dance!), each and every one of us are winners. :)

Biggest Takeaway from D&D?

The friendships made with all the other pageant contestants. If it weren’t for D&D I would have never gotten to know these people and realize how awesome they are.

Most Enjoyable part of D&D?

The dancing! Oh and the preparations, it was so nice to be pampered for a change. :)

How will your reign be? (Post D&D activities/plans)

HAHA THIS SOUNDS LIKE I WON MISS UNIVERSE. Okay I plan to fight for world peace, battle global warming, eradicate poverty….. :P

Who would you like to thank?

BEN AND MAMA ESTHER AND DESMOND AND JERWIN AND SONGKAI AND DESHAWN AND ADRIEL AND ANDY AND SHEREEN AND JOBINA AND SHARLYN AND JERUSHA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD FOR MAKING THIS AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE

Anything you would like to say for yourself or about someone else, DnD related of course…

Thank you Song Kai for being the best partner anyone could ever ask for. Songkai, you squeeze your boobs like no other, and I am eternally grateful that you agreed to do it. AND JERWIN IS GAY. FOR REALZ.

interview with the hall king – jerwin!

Writer: Avik & Adriel Leong
Editor: Ong Qing Liang

jerwin!

Congrats!”How does this word make you feel when you hear it over and over again, now that you are KE royalty?

Some are funny, some get a bit annoying. I just don’t let it get to me.

“The Title of King Edward VII hall King, 2010 goes to……Jerwin!!!” (screams event emcee), Immediate reaction?

I was furious… Lisa? How could Shereen not have won it? :P

On stage were you confident or just a bundle of nerves?

We were very nervous, but we were definitely having fun out there.

Attention here Attention there, Oh why do people stare…How do you handle post-DnD attention?

Honestly speaking, my ego is sky high right now. About time for some much-needed damage control…

Tell us, how is your pre DnD hall life different from the post DnD one?

I definitely got to know a lot more wonderful KE people during DnD so now I wouldn’t have to worry about going up to the dining hall and eating dinner alone anymore.

Has members of the opposite sex showed you more attention post D&D?

Nah… KE girls are all so prim and proper.

Why did you think you won?

I went to church the week before and prayed really really hard for it.

Who were your biggest competitors (Time to say something nice about all the other contestants)

Haha everyone of course, Songkai, Andy, Deshawn and Adriel. They are all crazy and awesome people and they all deserve the hall king title.

Biggest Takeaway from D&D?

Far too many to mention… The whole experience was just simply amazing.

Most Enjoyable part of D&D?

Dance practices with the pageant people were legendary…

How will your reign be? (Post D&D activities/plans)

Ask our queen for that. I’m under her.

Who would you like to thank?

The whole DnD committee, Ben, Esther, Desmond and the gang, for organizing the event

All the other contestants for making the experience so fun and unforgettable

And everyone who has come down for DnD, they made the event a success

Tell us the most attractive + unattractive portion of yourselves? (can be personality, looks anything!)

I really don’t know how to answer this. But I think most people should have seen me by now so I’ll leave this for them to judge…

Anything you would like to say for yourself or about someone else, DnD related of course…

No more QnA’s please. Please please please…

DnD pageant contestants (V) – Adriel and Sharlyn from E block

Writers: Adriel Leong & Avik Sarkar

SHARLYN SAYS:

Studying?
Nursing!

Why that course?
It’s a long story that started out with a visit to the hospital to see my ailing grandmother. I got inspiration from there and with the support of my family and my worst admission interview ever, here I am!

Pre-University Life?
Was spent with wonderful friends and slogging through the A-levels at St Andrew’s Junior College.

She cannot live without!
My trusty iPod and some good earphones.

You can find her at!
My room at E Block! J

Why she thinks she should be in this contest…
because… the committee picked me!

What she likes most about being in this contest…
the countless dance practices and trying on clothes and photo taking. REALLY. I love every bit of it!

Her wildest and naughtiest trip down the memory lane is…
a thing of the past that haunts the present.

About the model in her…
it’s something that I have yet to discover for myself.

How she handles male attention…
just be friends!

Campus life…
is a lot more convenient when the need to travel to and fro is eliminated with a room in hall!

Her body…
I got it from my mama!

Her wildest dream…
saw me in a jungle wearing leopard preens and hanging out with the coolest zebras and giraffes.

If she was magically transported to the 70’s, she would…
be a crazy fan girl and chase down Creedence Clearwater Revival.

If she had the choice of magically transporting someone from the 70’s, it would be…
Stevie Nicks! And she would sing to me, Just like the white-winged dove, sings the song sounds like she’s singing, ooh baby, ooh baby, ooh…

ADRIEL SAYS:

Studying?
Medicine

Why that course?
I like to interact with people on a daily basis, and not be confined to an office, desk-bound job. Furthermore, I feel that studying medicine affords one the greatest to help another human being in need, across all different cultures and situations. Lastly, it made my beloved late grandmother who was suffering from a really bad stroke, really proud to know that I had been pursuing something really meaningful as medicine.

Pre-University Life?
In secondary school! I was the most serious person that anyone could ever imagine! (hard to believe now I know), often frowning at the practical jokes and bullshit that was going on around me.

All that changed in JC. When I decided I had enough of being a very guai boy, and decided that in life, you should just have fun and learn to laugh at your self, before your teenager years slip past and you have to be serious as an adult! Hence, it led me to embrace my FULL-OF-SHIT ways (which everyone I suppose is rather well acquainted with!)

Right now! I am trying to balance both these aspects of my personality! But not making much progress though, if I may add!

He cannot live without!
Friends and Family! Everyone knows I go crazy if I have no one to talk nonsense/shit with!

You can find him at!
The science library, Level 6. Near the isolation cubicles (or sometimes at the table with the fire extinguisher). The librarians smile at me and wave goodbye when I leave the library! Talk about establishing an awesome STREET-CRED!

Why he thinks he should be in this contest…
My life revolves around going to the library daily till closing time, even on Saturdays! (and listening to the victory song), this certainly would add some variety to it! I had something to boast, when I do tell other people that I TRY MY BEST to get a life!

What he likes most about being in this contest…
Getting to know the other contestants and having old friends tell me that I actually look pretty decent! (contrary to what they tell me everyday in School. Compliants mostly revolve around my hairstyle, as usual!)

His wildest and naughtiest trip down the memory lane is…
As a primary 1 boy, while waiting for the school bus! I was feeling bored, and shoved a banana that I found on the ground into a car exhaust pipe! The dude’s engine that stalled and starting steaming when he started the car and cranked his engine! He then asked me if i knew who shoved a banana into his car exhaust! I just smiled and said I didn’t know anything, and I was going to be late for school!

About the model in him…
Hardly! My grades aren’t fantastic, and Mae Yue really praises me when I go for lectures! I am however, trying my best to change that around!

How he handles female attention…
What female attention???

Campus life…
Campus life certainly offers much freedom! For one, you can decide if you would like to miss lectures or sleep at 4.50 in the morning. Of course with great freedom comes great responsibility too! And I’m certainly learning how to cope with the responsibility bit. Additionally, the people I’ve met and befriended through hall and the countless memories I have had are certainly those I will cherish for life!

His body…
Skinny waist (which often makes my pants look extremely baggy) and my long hair, which I happen to have a bitter-sweet relationship with!

His wildest dream…
After watching zombieland! I dreamt my close guy friends and I were the only ones left, and we hunted down zombies L4D-style! Everything was going good, until we made a last stand in my friend’s bedroom! Then my memory got fuzzy. I think I woke up at that instant

If he was magically transported to the 70’s, he would…
Check out how hip my MAMA and PAPA were, and how they would hit the disco and what not! Most importantly, how they lived life and had fun as a teenager/young adult. Great excuse to go out late, knowing that they had their fair share of fun in their hey day. Also, would be fun to find out their embarrassing moments and tease them about it, so my parents don’t keep teasing me about joining the pageant all day, and nag about my hair length!

If he had the choice of magically transporting someone from the 70’s, it would be…
My PAPA and MAMA when they were young adults! It would be really cool to get to know them as pals! And see what kind of mischief we get up to!

Studying?

Furthermore, I feel that studying medicine affords one the greatest to help another human being in need, across all different cultures and situations.

DnD pageant contestants (III) – Deshawn and Jobina from AB!

Writer: Avik Sarkar

And now it’s time for Deshawn to spill his secrets! :P

Studying?
Medicine

Why that course?
My dream since secondary school was to be a doctor, inspired by my mother who is a paediatrics nurse and I wanted to do something useful and meaningful to society.

Pre-University Life?
JC you mean? Awesome. Got to know some really wonderful friends, some of whom continued on to medical school with me. Army? Looking back I really missed the times when we looked out for each other and the camaraderie within my platoon in Delta OCS was just exceptional.

He cannot live without!
Food! And water! And oxygen! And friends and family!

You can find him at!
B104

Why he thinks he should be in this contest…
I have the support from my block!

What he likes most about being in this contest…
Getting to know more people around hall, especially the contestants and the committee people.

His wildest and naughtiest trip down the memory lane is…
Being part of a bunch tossing eggs out of a driving vehicle, but I only threw one. Hmph. Otherwise I’m quite a ‘guai’ boy :D

About the model in him…
Contrary to the belief of some, I don’t pose very well for photos.

How he handles female attention…
I am a pretty shy person, so I don’t associate myself closely with many girls. To those I am usually around, they are either extroverted themselves, fun to talk with, group mates in school, or I am probably interested in haha. You decide the difference.

Campus life…
I enjoy the independence I picked up from hall life, and the new friends I have made in hall. There have been new experiences in hall which I would never have had in my normal daily life, including late-night suppers and birthday bashes (literally). I try to balance studying and hall life as much as I can.

His body…
Short, not so dark, not that handsome. (As contrary to the common criteria of tall, dark, handsome)

His wildest dream…
Test drive a Bugatti Veyron on the test track facility in Ehra-Lessien.

If he was magically transported to the 70’s, he would…
Magically transport back. I prefer to live in the now.

If he had the choice of magically transporting someone from the 70’s, it would be…
George Best. Then ManUtd will be god-like.

Jobina’s turn! Read on to find out about the thoughts in her mind!

Studying?
Medicine

Why that course?
Healthy= happy! I think being a doctor gives you the ability to make a difference in someone’s life in a unique way that other professions might not be able to offer!

Pre-University Life?
Mugging with the same group of friends for 6 years!

She cannot live without!
My family definitely!

You can find her at!
If I’m not in my room, I’m most probably in Huishan’s room (:

Why she thinks she should be in this contest…
Erm, it’s not up to me to choose? Haha, maximizing my hall life to the fullest I guess!

What she likes most about being in this contest…
The company! The shopping and midnight dancing(despite all the whining) and rolling on the floor laughing until tears roll down our cheeks. Lol.

Her wildest and naughtiest trip down the memory lane is…
Urm, pranking my dearest neighbour?

About the model in her…
Can never pull off sexy shots.

How she handles male attention…
Just be yourself?

Campus life…
Enriching! Dibbled in a bit of this and that and made lots of  wonderful friends!

Her body…
Tends to have a screwed up biological clock sometimes.

Her wildest dream…
Travel around the world in 80 days? Hahaha. OH and build a 4 -storey bungalow for my parents, my siblings and me! (:

If she was magically transported to the 70’s, she would…
Enjoy the slow pace of life there, and the retro fashion sense!

If she had the choice of magically transporting someone from the 70’s, it would be…
ABBA! (: Mamma mia!

DnD pageant contestants (I) – Jerwin & Shereen from CD!

Writer: Avik Sarkar

We managed to catch the pageant contestants from CD and made them answer some questions so that the rest of us KEVIIans can get to know them better! :D

And off we go, starting with Jerwin!

Studying?
Chemical Engineering

Why that course?
Same as why I’m in pageant I guess. I have a tendency of getting myself into things I end up regretting … hahaha

Pre-University Life?
I did my tutorials like a good RJ student. Played some volleyball and basketball here and there.

He cannot live without!
Family and friends of course.

You can find him at!
Central Library at day. Study Room at night ^O-O^

Why he thinks he should be in this contest
Strikingly handsome – check
Oozing with charisma – check
Great character – check
Highly delusional – check

What he likes most about being in this contest…

Definitely not answering QnA’s like this. Sorry(hehehe) ;P

His wildest and naughtiest trip down the memory lane is…
KE beating EH in this year’s IHG volleyball game? I guess that game was pretty wild…

About the model in him…
Wrong question. I think the question should be who’s the model I’m in! Haha can’t believe I actually said that :p

How he handles female attention..
I try to pretend I haven’t looked at her first.

Campus life…
Non-existent

His body…
Is God’s masterpiece….
Nah kidding, I’m healthy and I’m thankful for that :)

His wildest dream…
Seriously, what’s with you people and the idea of wild? I am a well-mannered person with real aspirations of making the world a better place.

If he was magically transported to the 70’s, he would…
Get a room in KE7.

If he had the choice of magically transporting someone from the 70’s, it would be…
The same me who was “magically” transported to the 70’s in the previous question I guess…

Now, for some time with Shereen!


Studying?

Medicine

Why that course?
Wants to spread the joy of laughter esp to those who are down :)

Pre-University Life?
Typical life of a nerd in KL schools ;)

She cannot live without!
Earrings!!

You can find her at!
The tennis court

Why she thinks she should be in this contest…
Forced by HUI MIN!!! Haha… And I wanted to try out something different that I would remember in 20 years time (when I’m old and flabby) and let my grand kids laugh at me :)

What she likes most about being in this contest..
Never thought dancing could be sooo much fun!!

Her wildest and naughtiest trip down the memory lane is…
I would never do anything naughty!! I’m sugar and spice and everything nice *winks*

About the model in her…
Will be unleashed during Dinner and Dance :P

How she handles male attention…
I’m a shy girl ;).. generally quite quiet to the guy I like and vice versa.

Campus life…
I’ve never had so much fun despite having mountains of work to do. I attempt to try different things before time runs out.

Her body…
Needs LOADS of SLEEP. Even the old folk during the Hallplay outing told me not to sleep soo much..zzz

Her wildest dream…
I wanted to be Britney Spears Jhahaha.. omg!!  What was I thinking!!

If she was magically transported to the 70’s, she would…
Panic!!! … and try to return to the 21st century ASAP!!  No doubt about that.. I worry too much…
