A Cappella Realizations

I wanted to rush into everything. I wanted to get the internship deal before ausaca so I could use the volunteer hours as internship hours. I wanted to find people to form a small acappella group with but I didn't know how or where to find them. I thought I wouldn't be able to just because i'm not local and things won't go the way I plan for them to. But after today, I HAVE NEW HOPE. I don't have to rush into the internship. Why do I want to complete my hours if I plan/hope to stay in the company for a long while before I go back to SG? I'll get to network while i'm there too; probably will meet people and be able to form a little acappella. Otherwise, at least I got to know people and maybe if i'm ambitious enough, I can do something similar in Singapore. I thought Australia's acappella community was way bigger than the one in Singapore, but maybe I just wasn't looking hard enough for it in Singapore. Maybe I was just really lucky that the two groups I joined here decided to compete for AUSACA. NP Voices never joined a national competition or any competition for that matter. Maybe that's why we didn't get to meet other acappella people. We only ever did gigs or performances. If I can't form my own little acappella, at least if I get the internship, I'd see how the industry works. I can't wait!!! 

P/S. Day I met Johanna Vinson and had a conversation with her
PP/S. Day I found a new level of love for acappella
PPP/S. Day I heard Suade perform (with their new lived-in-SG-Malaysian member) 
PPPP/S. Day I met past Home Free member Matthew Tuey 
PPPPP/S. Day I tried out some funky hairstyle after deciding to DIY dye my hair in 30 minutes before going for a competition

Job Trial Again

So I went for yet another job trial at a burger place. I was told to wear a black top so I wore my locfilm shirt (movie quotes at the back). And it so happens that the boss studied Film and Digital Media so he kept bringing up film in conversation and he was reading off the back of my shirt and guessing the movies the quotes came from. I want this job (this boss).

Trust Issues

I'm in a phase in my life where everyone is disappointing me. I can't trust anyone to do anything. I just have to do everything by myself. And for some things, one person will tell me that my attitude towards the certain thing is wrong, but when I ask someone else, they say there's nothing wrong with my attitude. Is it the different cultures or different people? All I'm doing is the same thing I did in poly which worked because everyone was on the same page, but here, i'm always on a different page as everyone else. That guy has been complaining about having a huge workload since the start of the semester but guess what dude? Everyone has their own workload; you picked those classes so quit complaining unless there's something we can do about it. It's like people are defending the guy who's in the wrong because I sound too harsh. Is it wrong to be straight forward if the guy has let me down over and over? If I have to sugar coat it every time, he's not going to take it seriously. That's why he hasn't learnt yet. That's why he's still being this irresponsible. IT'S NOT THE FIRST TIME. I'VE LET IT GO S O M A N Y T I M E S ALREADY. HELP 

If I lose myself I lose it all

Update on Job Situation

I'm the dishwasher now. I'm the $11/h girl. 

Everyone in the kitchen is generally nice and friendly so my colleagues are good. But every shift I work it's 50% kill me now and 50% I can make the best out of a bad situation. Some days it goes to 100% kill me now. 

I'm still doing it because it's a job nonetheless. Until I find a better one, i'll be stuck with this one. 

Also I don't just wash dishes. I empty the garbage downstairs at the recycling bins, sweep and mop the floors, wash and dry the dish/dirt towels. 

This is just a phase of my life. It'll pass. IT WILL PASS.

Job Trials

Remember that job trial I had for the backpackers where I spent the whole hour toasting bread and washing dishes? And I thought I was being used...

Well today I spent hours 0900-1600 at an Italian bar on a job trial; after the breakfast rush, since it was a slow day, the chef made me clean out a really neglected bottom shelf with spilt flour and rat poop and dust, the top of the huge pizza + everything else oven, the bottom of the oven where all the dirty oven racks and more dusty appliances were, and the entire fridge. All from scrubbing with the metal sponge, then washing with the normal sponge sponge and drying with a wet towel. I don't know if i'm pampered when I say this, but cleaning the first bottom shelf actually made me gag because the smell was so bad, the sponges were so dirty and the water I had to dip the sponges and my hands in was filthy by the second dip. The top of the oven was not just dirty/dusty, it had grime and sludge and I was just using the same sponge the whole time. You know how filthy it already is when you wash your most difficult pan/pot after dinner? The top of the oven looked like toxic waste. It made me feel like I was Wart in Sword in the Stone cleaning the kitchen alone before the magic happened. I was contemplating life while cleaning the bottom of the oven. 

Did I mention that the angmohs all looked real happy cause their jobs were like barista, waitress, chef... and there was this china girl at the back doing dishwashing. I had to pass her all the dirty oven racks because those actually looked like the easiest to clean already and Mario the Italian chef (ikr) told me that was her job instead. 

Also eavesdropped and learned that the other chef's name is Luigi. What are the oddS?

So I didn't check my phone and I didn't have any breaks. At the end of the most gruesome unpaid shift of my life, I was rewarded with spaghetti bolognese. The employees at the front with the coffee-making and cake-cutting were all nice and happy and their jobs looked like bliss. I wonder how much they get paid. I asked the china girl how much she was getting paid and she said $11/h. She did look older than me, so that's being severely underpaid. 

I didn't ask for details about the job like the shift hours or the pay because the person I was contacting didn't seem to answer any of my more general questions like what do I wear for the job trial or if I need to bring anything else. I'm just really desperate to get any chance I can at being employed. But I almost chopped my own finger off 3 times (cause I wanted to be efficient and i'm not good with kitchen skills), scalded myself twice trying to take bread out of the oven, got small cuts from scrubbing stuff (hopefully no infections) and my back and feet hurt i'm getting old....... My pants and shoes are filthy I walked out of the bar feeling like a rat. I went home feeling like the rats on my floor were cleaner than me. 

And now i'm wondering if I got exploited for the past 7 hours. I also heard that two other people did the job trial yesterday. The lady who replied my text also took 11 days to reply. What if this bar just calls people in for job trials every day to get free labor? And if they do call me to say I got the job, do I take it? I really feel like shit.

Timetable / CCA / Job

So firstly school is obviously my priority. I can't confirm my timetable until 8 July cause that's when we can pick the timings. I actually planned it in advance (they show the options before the picking) without knowing the specific studios yet so I can have the time to go for choir and acappella and have 3 days of school. But the studio timings just came out and i'm stuck between sample packs and learning the zither. I'm always interested in learning new instruments but that's one weird ass instrument (imo) and not a really practical option. It's also on Friday which means i'll have 4 days of school and it's not a morning class so that's either half a day of work (if i can get a job) or no day of work. The sample packs would be a harder studio for me but I do want to learn the practical stuff. Unfortunately it clashes with choir, like I completely can't attend any part of it, and it's 3 hours instead of 2 for the zither. And choir was one of the things I enjoyed most last semester because school was kinda shit. However it will give me the same amount of days to work as I planned so now the main question is: 

Choir or Work? 

And what if I still continue applying and there's nobody that's willing to hire me? WHAT DO I DO?!?!?

Dear Hayes, 

You are amazing. Don't know why your previous owner abandoned you on Franklin Street but i'm so glad I adopted you. You make me feel so warm all the time, and you know how to turn it a knob down when it's too hot. You take the initiative to start back up again when it's getting chilly. How would I survive winter without you? 

Love, Amanda

A Semester In Melbourne

So i'm done with my first semester in Melbourne. Living conditions wise, i'm good. There's been a rat in my apartment but that just made me learnt how to be ok living with a rat. I've learnt to cook so many things (and chop so many things) and how much of a certain grocery to buy to use before it expires.. and where to go for the cheapest stuff like an auntie would. Here's a list of things I didn't know how to but now do: 
  1. cut mangoes (didn't know it hAD A SEED and i have to cut around)
  2. chop onions (now can dice like a beast - still using the wrong method to hold it)
  3. dice garlic (to chop off the ends and squish)
  4. prepare anything that involved onions and garlic 
  5. defrost meat before cooking
  6. separate meat chunks before freezing
Dishes i've attempted (and ratings of my attempts): 
  1. guacamole ☺☺☺☺ 
  2. ratatouille ☺☺☺ (not a fan of so much veg) 
  3. shephard's pie ☺☺☺☺☺ 
  4. potato chips ☺☺☺(oily af but tastes so good) 
  5. mango sago ☺☺☺ (2 tries, too much coconut milk for the first, milk went bad for the second) 
  6. burrito ☺☺☺☺ 
  7. roasted drumsticks ☺☺☺☺☺ 
  8. swedish meatball pasta ☺☺☺☺☺ 
  9. vegetarian curry ☺☺ (i don't like curry) 
  10. pork dumplings ☺☺☺
Dishes i've made over and over because of convenience:
  1. chicken drumstick soup 
  2. mixed spinach+carrot+mushrooms
  3. banana oats
  4. toasted ham+cheese+spinach sandwiches
  5. scrambled omelettes (cause i fail the proper omelette)
  6. salads (for friday classes) 
I've made friends from orientation, school, choir, a cappella, the city baths and my apartment, and they're mostly asian/international students. I have so much trouble making local friends cause the only time I get the chance to spend time with locals is in school, and we don't really talk much in class either. It's not just me though, and I've come to the conclusion that it's not a racist thing because when we do talk, they're pretty friendly; they just mostly live in the suburbs so it's not convenient to hang out together, and also the culture of making the new kid feel welcome isn't very prominent, unlike in Singapore where orientation is such a huge thing and we're literally forced to make friends (e.g.: round of introductions then double whacko straight away). Or maybe it is a racist thing and i'm just not feeling it. 

I'm doing alright in school, pretty average like i've always been. Sometimes I try pulling an asian and i'm left with no work to do for a long time, and I begin binge watching TV shows (I got through the entire series of Zoey 101, Mom and now i'm on to re-watching Malcolm in the Middle). The thing that annoys me is the group projects; the locals have a very different working style. They're super chill and they wait until the last minute to start on things. I like to work with people that chiong - like Jacqueline - because why not get things done earlier right? So one of my group projects was incomplete on the day of the deadline. I tried asking for an extension for my group - which I have not done before in my life UNTIL NOW - but it wasn't granted. It's taking me a long time but i'm slowly coming to terms with my incomplete group work. The problem was communication. There was hardly discussion in class and when I asked to meet outside of class, they weren't keen; and it took them really long to reply to the group chat too (which was on an app called slack). But all that's done for now, i'm done with the semester. 

The only thing I got a HD for was participation for my core, and I felt like I wasn't even actually participating. I'm really happy about the D for my cinema studies presentation because (for those of you who know me) I am horrible at presentations and this group work wasn't exactly going well until the last few days of rushed work. But I managed to wing it for a couple of points which were (according to the tutor) spot on as mentioned in the feedback :) The presentation was also the last thing I had for the semester and we got our mark on the spot, so that was a great end for me. 

I've been swimming every weekday since mid-April when I joined city baths, and I've been seeing a bunch of regulars there as well, this middle-aged guy who always looks like a lobster and hogs the strongest jet in the jacuzzi (somehow always there at the same time as me); this old hong-kong guy who's like an olden asian dude who lives on the top of a mountain in isolation for 40 years and has a lot of wisdom (not really) to impart on the younger generation; this 20+ french guy (not really a regular) who talked to me in the jacuzzi who was only there for his passes in april; Farouk lol; indian lady with her husband who swims in the leisure lane all the time; smiley old asian man who also swims in the leisure lane... I like being a regular somewhere. The old hong-kong guy is the only other one who actually talks to me, and he recognizes me by my swimsuit.

So it's just about time for holidays (everyone else is still in the middle of exams) and I have about a month and a half of it to spend. Ysabel and Yunfann will be in Melbourne for a week or so each, and I have plans to go skiing at Mount Buller next week, and Sydney in July (meeting reddit Nicholas)! Apart from that, I plan to either spend the rest of my time working - or continue looking for a job first (if the cafe attendant person doesn't get back to me) - and keeping up my fitness, maybe improve on my basic strokes and learn new ones. 

Other stuff to do during the hols:
  1. Dye hair DIY
  2. Attempt new dishes
  3. Yoga photoshoot with krussica
  4. Winter Night Market 
  5. Read the library books I borrowed for my essay
  6. Covers
  7. Learn Ableton 
  8. Think of a 21st birthday present for Yunfann cause hers to me was brilliant 
  10. Leisure skate at the park / learn slalom

RMIT Connect

Dickson, Erika, Xander and I were studying at RMIT connect at 11PM (it's 24/7) and then they suddenly asked to check our IDs. I didn't bring my wallet and Xander doesn't study here. I asked if I could log in to myRMIT as proof, and then I did, but the lady said it wasn't enough proof. She had to see my CoE before she let me stay here. Damn, security's tight.

YEs nO

  1. My disco/edm reading is about how people keep coming up with new names for subgenres because the old ones became mainstream and they need to be hipsters.
  2. I love it when my reading has 4.5 pages of end notes and bibliography : )
  3. Should I be trying to learn more stuff (take classes I have no background and am interested in) or should I try to score well (take the cinema classes that are almost the same as FSV except for the different screenings)? I want to learn but I know halfway through the semester (like now) i'll just want to get it over and done with and I won't be learning like I would if I did it on my own. Asian Cinema and Popular Cinema are the equiv to Adrian's Asian Cinema and the Hollywood Module....... I feel so well taught. 
  4. Another issue is buying a textbook for a cinema module, which wouldn't seem worth it. I was lucky enough my first cinema module used the only film text book I have.

Zoey 101

Just saw the Zoey 101 episode where Zoey was in the wrestling team and all the guys forfeited so she got into the finals where the coach substituted her so his best wrestler could have a go. And then when Zoey got beaten, Logan went to the parking lot and told Javers off because he shouldn't be so rough on a girl.

The progress for everything in my studio class is so slow. It's week 5 and we were told to start contact venues in week 1. The venue didn't reply and for 4 weeks we were just stagnant. They're finally planning on going down to the bar to ask in person this week, and they didn't even set a date to go down until I prompted, so if I didn't prompt, we'd still be at the same spot next week. I'm the only one living in the city and actually super near the bar so it'd be super convenient for me to go down anytime I want. I do want to go down to the bar myself right now and ask, but I'm not the one friends with the owner. I really wanna do so many things by myself for this class but everything is based on connections and I have none.

Week 4 Vlog / Uni Y2S1W02


Trammed back from Cheerleading with a negative balance in my myki and I freaked out because it was 17 stops away from town and I didn't wanna pay the fine for not touching on but I kinda had no other option because the stop I got on from didn't have a top-up booth. I would've been stranded. It helped that I made friends on the tram because it took my mind off my panic. The 2 HK girls taught me how to actually say 'thank you' and 'you are funny' and 'i love you' in Cantonese, not the dirty words Andre taught me. Geez man you're 26 c'mon.


Went for Josh's textural crossings screening of Romeo + Juilet. Parted ways when the class ended then I decided to go to Aldi to buy groceries. Suddenly heard a "eh, you're here to buy groceries also ah?" It was Josh. 


More free beer/cider/pizza from Outdoors' Club. 


Level 2 screening of Pitch Perfect with special appearances of crème brûlée and cookies.


Outlet shopping and I've spent more money on clothing this month compared to the whole of last year... probably. I forgot how it feels like to buy clothes from an actual store : ) 

P/S. Room 7 guy threw out a non-expired tupperware of chinese goodies so I picked it up from the trash since it was an air tight container. 

PP/S. I'm really glad for Josh here. He can just come up to me randomly and be like "eh Lun and Rachel getting married ah?" and even though no, they're not getting married -he just saw the picture on FB and said 'aiya every photo they take looks like they're getting married'- it just makes me feel more at home or like i'm still in Singapore where people can talk about mutual friends out of this only group of people I hang out with here. It reminds me that it's okay to only have this group of friends because i'm just starting out here, albeit a little slow, and I have a life back in Singapore that's waiting for me and him and all of us.

Week 3 Vlog / Uni Y2S1W01

Aussie short forms / slang i've heard this week:
- Soprani (soprano)
- Alti (alto)
- Tutes (tutorials)
- Divi (divide)
- Choci bickkie (chocolate biscuit)

On Friday, I had 5 straight hours of classes. I woke up early to collect my 2 parcels that I missed because I don't usually wake up in the mornings, and rushed to school. For the third hour of class, we were in block 10 which is one of the blocks under construction, and it felt really unsafe to be in there cause there were large objects being dropped on the floors above us which made the whole room shake, and the lights would flicker momentarily and go off. I don't know if it's energy saving lights that are activated by movement or what.. but even the Catherine, the lecturer, wasn't sure why the place was moving so much.

The plagiarism software for this school is TurnItIn, and I like that I can submit my assignment as many times as I want before the due date just to check on the plagiarism score. 

Watched Fight Club and half of Zoolander for movie night on level 2.

I remember when we were walking home one night, Hafiz asked Erika and I "does this still feel like a holiday?" Erika shook her head, but I think I said it does still feel like a holiday because I'm hanging out with friends out of school almost every night and we're still visiting mildly touristy things like QVM. It hasn't come to the point where we're all too busy to meet up with each other. I'm still trying new things because my routine isn't set in stone. 

That's all this week!

In case you were wondering, my vlogs run from the previous Sunday to the current Saturday so I can edit them on Sunday.

cotton on return

Bought some stuff on cotton on online and i bought enough to get free shipping, which would initially cost 10AUD. So the item came and it's a size too small for me, and the return policy says they don't do exchanges via post, only in store. So I went to the store but they don't have it in stores. Emailed customer service and they said I can return it and get a refund, then order another one. 

1. I wouldn't get free shipping for the new one
2. Getting the refund label costs 10AUD

So that means i'd have to pay an extra 20AUD just to exchange it. WHAT THE 

I think i'll just starve myself until I fit in them (don't worry I don't mean it). Or wait until I get back to SG to sell them on Carousell. Pity because I really like the design.

001: First Week In Melbourne (15/2 - 20/2)

I think it's quite evident that i've gotten lazy to write paragraphs about stuff that happens on a day-to-day basis. As much as I love keeping an archive of my thoughts of my life here, I will probably stop posting monthly calendar updates because i'm also doing weekly vlog-ish videos on my YouTube channel. 

I did quite a lazy one last week. Minimal editing and no background soundtrack because I was thinking of making my own background music to use so there's no copyright infringement but I also only have a guitar with me since I emigrated to Australia. I'll see. 

I will however, still blog about my thoughts at any point in time where I feel like blogging about something. So basically just rants or indirect confrontations because who in this century reads blogs anymore!??! (Apart from my dear Jacqueline I appreciate your comments on my posts)

Thank you to you if you're still regularly checking for updates on this blog.

On a different note, here are some things about my first week in Melbourne that I didn't mention in the vlog because I can't talk in front of the camera for shit.

  1. I love the sidewalks, it's like a dream walking on beautiful streets in the cool weather. Sometimes it's hot though, but I appreciate the heat the sun gives so it's not too cold from just the wind. 
  2. All the taxi drivers mom and I met were african american. Is this coincidence or just common?? 
  3. I wanted to buy 1 set of utensils but it was only sold in minimum 4 sets everywhere, so mom suggested we take a set from her hotel. Genius.
  4. During the enrollment briefing they told me phones were the most stolen item and people can just grab it out of your hands while you're texting on the streets so for a good few days I was just grabbing onto my phone really tightly like a lifeline. 
  5. I'm surprised that none of my advisors knew if I was going straight into second year or which modules I was supposed to be exempted from, like which electives I can take or if the pre-requisites mattered for me. 
  6. The classroom for my course briefing was double booked so there was an angry lecturer with a class of 30 chasing us out during the briefing.
  7. During the contextual studies electives talk, the literature elective rep spoke about her elective for so long that every speaker after that was subtly taking jabs at her long-windedness. 
  8. There is a section of the kitchen where they put the previous tenants' stuff so it's free for all for us now, and i've taken a fan (the most useful cause I gotta dry my hair), couple of plates and bowls and a tiny egg pan. 
  9. I forgot to bring the cable but I brought my rice cooker so that was useless until I found an extra rice cooker in the previous tenants' cupboard. 
  10. It's harder for me to do the yoga challenges because of the timezones. While i'm about to sleep for the day, the people in america are just waking up. 
  11. I feel like i'm fortunate enough to be able to personalize my room with nice bedsheets and things and sometimes I fear other tenants robbing me. Now not so much, but that was the first few days.
  12. I was one of the kiasu people up at 8AM exactly, to pick the timetables. I'm not sure if that's the culture here but a lot of people haven't even enrolled into their classes yet so maybe it's just the kiasu asians. I got the timetable I wanted (we get to personalize our whole schedule right down to the tutorials and lectures) but then I had to add a compulsory elective that was full before I enrolled because i'm international, so that messed up my timetable a little bit. I had a nice 3 morning start days, but now I have 3 afternoon start days. That's still alright I guess. 
  13. The time tabling system crashed twice in the minute I was trying to pick my classes.
  14. When mom left in the cab, I had to walk back by myself and I didn't want to cry on the way home carrying so many things cause that'd just look weird and sad. So I went into this Asian supermart and I had no idea what groceries I would need so I just bought onions and garlic.
