This performance, for a lack of a better word, was interesting. It wasn't my favorite performance but it was still pretty good. Would I recommend it? Well that's a hard question to answer. You see, some of the acts simply bored me to tears. However, some simply took my breath away. \
The show was spoken entirely in French (I think). Despite having learned French for more than half a year now, I still didn't understand half of what they were saying. After I watched the show, I went to the Wikipedia page of the show and it explained what the show meant. I guess it has a lot of meaning behind the costumes and everything. After reading the page, I somehow understood the show at a deeper level. I understood why certain characters acted as they did. I want to keep this spoiler-free, so I'll just leave it here.
Nothing much has been happening in my life recently. Of course, as I mentioned in my earlier post, things are getting harder due to increased workload etc. But what's really getting harder is coping. You see, when I was in primary school, I could watch hours of television on end and still manage to finish my homework on time. Now, with other commitments such as my French lessons, debate training and other stuff, every minute of my day has to be maximized or I would have to sleep at midnight every day. I am a self-admitted procrastinator and I know that I should probably pick up that pen and start doing my worksheets but I can't. I tell myself that I just need 1 more minute to do my work. Just 1 more minute... Which then turns into 1hour, 2 hours and then, as the clock strikes 9, I realise that I've shot myself in the foot.
Sad face, Nicole

Time really flies. It's August, and I've survived 6 months in NYGH. I've made some friends, my dear Ee Ning, Yalin, Wing En, Lydia. Not forgetting those who followed me here from NYPS. My beloved Xuan Yi struggles in debate with me while Min remains the top of the class.
I've decided to inject new life into this blog. After all, it has been with me since P5.
This blog hasn't changed much but I certainly hope I have. :) Gosh I realise how irritating I must have been back then. Bleurgh.
Wing Wing is now in the computer lab with me right now. She apparently has a blog so maybe I'll stalk her as well. I might decide to choose to change my blogskin but due to my noobness, I still haven't learned how to do it yet. Maybe tomorrow.
I realise that I'm a big procrastinator. Tomorrow seems to be the busiest day of the week for me now. Maybe it's because I'm hooked on YouTube. And Ugly Betty. And Pet Society (again). Neopets. Poptropica. I'm going back to P5 again. *shudders*
Some advice: Secondary school can be fun but you have to remember to balance CCA and schoolwork. I'm not doing it perfectly and I'm still not sure how French fits in. So.
Watch this space! (Why have I resorted to cliches -__-)

Hey Chicas, Sorry I have not been posting for so long.....It is because I think we are having a little too much fun in Spain.I come home everyday after walking from 7am to 7pm every single day and I am dead beat.So I collapse in bed.Anyways,I have so far gone to Seville and now is in Granada.Let me tell you about Seville first...
Seville: We arrived after a 7 hour plus trip in the bus.Bumpy argh and we were so sleepy because we woke uop at 6 plus in the morning to get ready for a early bus trip.In Seville we stayed in this hotel which was our most expensive hotel as it was owned by a company so yeah.In Seville we did practically NOTHING but that was where I got my notebook.Linkie to see it:http://www.paperblanks.com/us/en/collections/1/filtered?collection_id=258
Granada: Ok we arrived in Granada after a 3 hour long trip that left me real dizzy.We then had lunch at the bus station which was recommended by our guidebook Rick Steves Spain 2010.Then we went to our hotel in the Albazyin which is v. dangerous after dark.Next day which is today we went to the Alahambra which was the place to go there.Then we went to their local market near El Corte Ingles their 'Cold Storage' and the local market was so cheap but was closing when we reached so we didn't get to explore much.Then we ate at this place where a stupid bird shit green shit on my hair after I fed it!Damned thing!!!!Then we went El Corte Ingles and this woman at the fruits and potatoes counter saw Grandpa taking 2 potatoes and snatched it away and said no touch.But that was not the end of it.She even weighed it and expected us to buy!We dumped potatoes in the wine section.Tee hee.Stupid woman.Grr.Bully my family and YOU DIE!!!So we went back and cooked dinner and we had this marinated overnight homecooked pork chop...Mmm....
PS:D,is the christmas party gonna be at what date?

So,we went La Abadia to eat dinner and we ordere patridge,suckling pig which my grandpa thought was more like 4 month old pig.I told him that the menue just said that it was 21 days of sucking mother´s milk not 21 days old probably.There was this wine that was 13.5% alchohol content and I sipped it and it BURNED my lips staining my teeth and my lips BLACK!!!As you know I only drink a bit(wink,wink)so I was saved from drunkness,unlike some other people in the resturant....
You´re in and you´re out,you´re up and you´re down...... From Katy Perry´s Hot N Cold
Toledo´s roads are roads that are like a ROLLERCOASTER!!!I bet I´m gonna lose weight after this!The roads are terrible.....Its either steep up or steep down.Anyways apparently this place,back in the swashbuckling days,was famous for their swords.So now there are still many sword shops around.Shopping isn´t like it is in Madrid cos got very little shops of H&M or whatever.As a reply for D´s comment,Desigual is still SUPER expensive here even in the outlets.One dress that I liked was abt 100 SIN dollars!Anyway tonight we are going to a locals fav. bar called La Abadia.
More soon, Nicole
