Posted Apr 16, 2014 // 0 comments (+)Sup guys! The new semester is starting soon in less than a week, which implies that I am turning into a Year 2 student soon. Wow, that thought is just awfully scary. Why scary? Haha, because I can foresee all of the projects taking up my time, leaving no leisure time behind for me. Booohooo. I feel so old and lifeless, all of a sudden. Well, I hope all will be well. Shall have my fingers crossed.
Anyway, I am gonna do another set of tag questions today. I realised I haven't exactly been 'opening up' to just anyone and I happened to see these questions on Tumblr, so.... Here goes!
'Get to Know Me' Tag
1. Are you named after anyone?
I strongly doubt so. Well, I mean, 'Yock Yen' is definitely an uncommon name; you don't see anyone having this name except for yours truly. Muahaha, what a unique name I have got there. ;)
2. When was the last time you cried?
This shall remain confidential. It's for you to find out, hopefully not though, don't really want anyone to know my vulnerability. Bleh! :P
3. Do you have kids?
No. Haha, I like such no brainer questions. LOL.
4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
Yeah, why not? Here's a fun fact: I'd actually make sure that I talk to 'myself' a few hours after 'I' wake up. Else, 'I' would be cranky and not be in the mood to talk to me. HAHA, do you geddit?
5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Uh, not exactly. I do use quite a lot of sarcasm (I guess..? Well, it's a matter of perspective.) if I am with people that I feel comfortable with.
6. Will you ever bungee-jump?
I am on the fence about it. I will though, I guess! But at the same time, I can think of hell lots of things that will make me feel alive and get my adrenaline going without having to throw myself off a bridge or fly up to the sky. HAHAHA.
7. What’s your favorite cereal?
8. What’s the first thing you notice about people?
I tend to look at the person as a whole – features, built, hair, behaviour. But I guess what really attracts my attention first is their built. Haha.
9. What is your eye colour?
Black? Or is it brown....
10. Scary movie or happy endings?
No doubts that my answer will be happy endings. I can't stand horror movies, oppsy.
Here's another fun fact: I will seriously overthink after catching a horror film. LOL.
11. Favorite smells?
FOOD (!!!), Victoria Secret's Bombshell, Miss Dior's Blooming Bouquet, as well as some random The Body Shop's perfumes.
12. Summer or winter?
Summer! Although I am raised in a country that only has summer all year long, I'll still prefer summer to winter.
13. Computer or television?
I enjoy using the computer and television as much. Hahaha. I can watch TV on the computer, I can also surf the net using the TV, vice versa.
14. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
Australia? Japan? In all honesty, I have no idea which country is further away from Singapore. Sorry guys, my Geography sucks.
15. Do you have any special talents?
Not that I know of. LOL.
16. Where were you born?
17. What are your hobbies?
Learning anything new, watching the television, reading novels, compulsively shopping, relaxing at home with my family. I think that's pretty much about it.
18. Do you have any pets?
Nope, not at the moment. I used to have a terrapin though when I was 7? I set it free when I turned 12 or 13, can't really recall.
19. Favorite movies?
The list is sooo long that I can't make up my mind, omg. I AM SO EXCITED TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION. LOL. I am totally a huge fan of movies!! Hmm. 'The Hunger Games', 'Mission Impossible 4', 'Step Up', 'Coach Carter', 'The Princess Dairies', 'The Avengers', 'About Time', 'Sherlock Holmes', 'Pitch Perfect', 'The Lucky One', 'You Again', 'Crazy, Stupid, Love', 'Divergent', 'Johnny English' and alot more!!
20. Do you have any siblings?
Yeap, I have 2 elder brothers!
My teeth is aching damn badly right now. Yeap, I have it tightened last night and I have all the urge to rip the braces off right now because it hurts like a bitch. :))) Hahaha, I should prolly hit the sack now!! Oh and I think I will most likely come up with a blog entry solely on my teeth in a few months' time (or a year, perhaps) after I remove my braces!!! HAHAHA.
Anyway, I guess I'll skip updating my space with the happenings between end of March to the start of April. Well, because I do not wish to bore you guys out with my mundane lifestyle. Goodnight, till we meet again! X

Posted Apr 10, 2014 // 0 comments (+)17 March 2014: Operation C ♡
The girls, Jia Hui and Jing Yi, and I racked our brains for quite some time to come up with an almost flawless 19th birthday celebration for our dearest mother-like girlfriend, Cecilia. Just like all of the other birthday celebrations, we dined together (obviously). But guess what, our form of dining that day was picnic!! Hehehe.
Hold on, allow me to share the background information with you guys first: The girls and I told Cecilia a white lie - We acted as if we could not care less for her birthday celebration and made really hasty decisions on the meet up venue and etc. However, on the day of meet up, we met the supporting crew (the rest, HAHAHA) an hour earlier to purchase the food for picnic when we were supposed to set up for our picnic. TSK, HAHAHA. Jing Yi and I, then, quickly made our way to the MRT station to lead both Jia Hui and Cecilia to the 'restaurant' that we were supposed to have our lunch at. AHAHAHA. Cecilia was shock (I guess), in the most pleasant way of course, when she was greeted by a bunch of familiar faces. Hehehe.
Photography by Jia Hui.
Our initial plan was to have activities such as Running Man. However, the weather didn't allow us to carry out such activities. So as to spice things up a little, we included a variation of dares for Cecilia to complete as one of the activities. Not only was Cecilia as spontaneous as ever because finished doing all of 18 dares, she has also made the entire session entertaining and hyped up the atmosphere then. The session was filled with pure laughter and happiness. *A round of applause for her*
Here are some of the dares:
This dare was meant for Cecilia only, but we got dragged in ultimately. BOO. HAHAHA.
Yes, I blurred the video on purpose.
P/S: I won't be uploading some of the images and videoes for the featured dares.
Next, we shared the first impressions that we have of every single one who were present at that moment. I am really appreciative of such activities because it allows me to know how people think of me as a friend, or even as a person in general.
Despite the encounters we had with inevitable circumstances such as downpours, I am delighted that the celebration is smooth-going. On a happier note, Operation C is considered a success. Yippeee!!
Did anyone realised both Jia Hui and I are dressed in the same colour top and bottom? LOL. I swear that it was pure coincidence. HAHAHA.
DBKF04 (14/20) - Including Hui Min's little bro and Gabriel!
Here's a fun fact: Gabriel is a former student of DBKF04, but the system reallocated him to DBKF08.
I have come to the end of this particular blog entry, but before I bid goodbye to you guys, I have another video to share with y'all!! Hehehe.
"Ahhh, REFRESHING. Green tea! ~"
Yes, it's another video of Cecilia since this blog entry is about her birthday celebration. :P
HI CECILIA, MY FAVOURITE 'OLD' WOMAN!! Happy (belated) 19th birthday! I hope you've enjoyed yourself thoroughly at Vivo City with us as well as on your special day. I am really thankful to have known you, and you've definitely liven up my life in all possible ways. It's funny how the both of us had the exact sentiments that we'd not be as close as we are right now in the first semester. LOL. However, I am really pleased that we're close to each other because you're an amazingly caring, loving, understanding friend. Thank you for trusting me and being a good listener. HAHAHA. I love you so much!! ♡♡♡ xoxo
