School Isn't Just About Studying

It's not everyday that your school staff takes students to a pub at night... Haha don't get the wrong idea, nothing illegal was involved. It was an awesome night, me and friends from the debating team (Shakira, Nate and Alex) and their parents participated in a quiz night held at the Celsius Bar in Botany Junction. I didn't really help though, only answered 2 questions (based on maths). Our team (The Avengers) got 9th out of 15 teams. Note: we we're the youngest group there. We ended up getting owned by grandmas and grandpas.

Forgot to take a camera with me last night... but there was a picture online, I think it's really nice. I promise if I visit again I'll take some nice pictures.

The outdoor bit... it was to cold last night to sit outside.

Today, Happy ANZAC Day.

Even though it's suppose to be a holiday (no school) I still turned up at school at 10 in the morning. It was worth it though, because it was the guys first official Basketball match this year. After watching them I can't wait for the under 17's girls season to start. Today I went to help do the timing and the score keeping, this is when my pro mathematics skills came in handy I guess.


  50   ~    87     loss for us =.="

Apparently those guys were year 13's, so I guess it was pretty good since most of the guys in our team were year 11's.

I found it funny how all the guys in our team were Asians (mostly Chinese) and only one guy on their team was Asian and he was quite pro though.

It was a good chance for the guys to test out their formations.

Don in "HI" formation

Jackie's layup... (I think this one didn't make it in though.)

Felix was super cool! Many shots and good defense. Found a pretty funny picture. Hope he doesn't see this.

It's amazing how high he jumps O.O

Xiao Fan was the tall one on the team, but the guys on the other team were even taller. Still he manage to get many rebounds and awesome defense.

These guys got really bored in the last quarter, didn't get to go on.

David tired to avoid the camera haha to late.

Brendan was super serious, his shots were amazing, but not as accurate as usual, I guess the pressures got him there.

Felix SHOTS!

And he scores

Layup or Hook ....

can't tell


In my head: miss miss miss miss miss miss miss miss

Reality: gets in....

The other teams did a lot of fast breaks in the first quarter, which really used up their energy by the time it was around the third and fourth quarter. 
Great Jobs Guys! 4, 15mins rounds was a long game (total 1 hr). There was a moment in the last quarter when you guys did an amazing shoot! To bad I didn't record it. It was so awesome, you could see how the ball just flew from one to another (super swift), that definitely caught the other team off guard.

Anyways hope to watch more of you games. And yeah I kept my promise to post more often, but this post seems to long again... Basketball is just to awesome ^ ^

Growing Up SUCKS!

 The first term holiday is almost over, which mean time for school!! I haven't been posting lately (not a good habit), even though no one reads them, but I still need to get into the habit to.

This holiday was mainly catching up on sleep, having many basketball trainings (honesty my legs are almost dead), also watching anime and browsing though the net (especially youtube)

Here are some photos from my iPad... (some taken during the first term)

Taking care of my skin at this age is really important. During the holidays, I have been spending a lot of time looking after my skin.

I use clean and clear, even though I should also experience with other brands, but so far my favourites are...

Morning burst: It's not strong, so it's suitable for when I just woke up and just need a gentle wash.

Toner: I just like it....

Moisturizer: It's light and lasts the whole day and there's a new one which has sp15 in it, so I am hoping to try that out after this one.

Also the Deep Cleanser in shower facial wash (didn't take a picture): I use it almost every night, especially when I just got home from training. It uses the steam from the shower, to make the cleaning super effective and I leave it on for a minute while I am in the shower and when I rinse it of my skin feels super soft.

I have been using different types of cotton facial masks (didn't take picture): moisturizing, whitening and cleaning out dirt and oil and yeah stuff like that. They are really nice and effective. Thank you Aunty!

Pork and Cabbage filled Dumplings


These were pre-made, but I can make them.....
when I am bothered too.
 Easter Eggs ! They were really nice. Thanks Zaiyou!

I just had to receive them when I promised to go on a diet.

Note to self: never go on diet near holidays (eg Chinese New Year, New Year, Easter, Christmas, etc)
Anh and Seryna are making printed T-Shirts for Business Studies at school (I'm in Economics....) so I joined in and made a Hello Kitty T-Shirt for myself.

It looks pretty professional.
 Finally no basketball training! Can rest for a few days.... hehehehe paint nails

People love leaving surpriseson my iPad....

Most of them are Seryna and Anh.

I just thought this one was a nice one (not using any photo booth effects)

Someone in showing me how to use a Graphics Calculator in Yr 12 Calculus.

If you can't see it says STUPID

My dad took me to one of his business dinners.

Ordered a glass of fresh watermelon juice.


At the entrance of the restaurant, saw a tank with the biggest goldfish I have ever seen in my life O.o

Apparently the waiter told me it was pregnant.

Studying for Calculus internals in the first term.

Another surprise I found.

Mr Johnson, my awesome English teacher, because of his classes I don't hate English as much now.

A piece that I took almost 2 months to finish in art class.

* it looks better than in the picture

In Economics classes preparing for Spirit Day


Initiation i was using the camera as a mirror to tie my hair, but people came along and took pictures. I guess this is a nice one.

Well that was a lot to catch up on.... To avoid these huge posts, I will post more often to make it quick and sweet.
