Dearest FedEx, UPS and Speedpost,

I doubt you are the same company here in little sunny Singapore yet you make the exact same mistake. You have made me doubt Amazon a few times because of your mistakes. I'll assume the mistakes were made by you because my Amazon packages all have the right addresses. You always claim to have the wrong address and therefore cannot carry out the delivery. If it was a one-off event, I wouldn't be typing this. All three companies have taken down my address wrongly on your systems. Why is that 5 so difficult to input? It's only ONE number yet you always mess up. 

You then mention that Amazon provided the wrong address. Am I seeing things with my package? I seem to see an imaginary 5 there that shipping companies can't see. This little mistake has cost me a lot of grief. If you can't see the address ON the box and always refer to your little electronic devices to get the address, what is the point of having the address on the box? Furthermore, my phone number is listed but no, you decide not to call and just list the item as undelivered at best. 

Another point, UPS customer service. I'm really sorry for myself that I didn't get your name. I called yesterday 3 August 2012 at 9.2x p.m. I asked where the delivery man was. You mentioned my address and I told you that the unit number was wrong.

CSO: Can we arrange for delivery tomorrow?
Me: It's been out for delivery the whole day!
CSO: Okay, he will come before 10 p.m.
Me: But he has the wrong address...?
CSO: Ya......

What do you mean 'Ya'???

And she said she'd call me back. Guess what? No, it's not even worth guessing because the answer's plain obvious. 

So I called back at 9.45 p.m.

How long does it take to make a call back to the customer?
You tell me, I can't fathom the amount of effort it takes to pick up the phone and dial my number.

P.S: Only once was the address wrongly written BUT my phone number was there. Come on.

I was collecting my play tickets at Somerset yesterday.

Customer Service Officer: So you are collecting tickets for two plays?
Me: Yes.
CSO: For the plays, Potted Potter and Gad... The event on Saturday?
Me: Um... Yeah?

LOL ( ̄▽ ̄)

The play title became the event on Saturday. I'm sure it was supposed to be the GOD of Carnage though. She had that accent that pronounced God (as in pod) as Gad.

Me: I'm buying the tickets as long as the play's on a Saturday okay?
Sis: Yup.

A few days later...

Sis: Hey, did you know Adrian Pang's acting in a play?
Me: Uh...
Sis: It's called 'God of Carnage'.
Me: ...
Sis: You wanna go?
Me: I already bought the tickets. Remember I told you I'd be buying the tickets?

( T_T)\(^-^ )

Well, results are out. I got what I'd expected myself to get. Troilus did stay true. I guess I'm a good Cressida. Now, the hunt starts.

Poyo poyo and Chibi Tamagotchis.

Poyo poyo coming soon. (=^ェ^=)
The only game I've completed is the tamagotchi music game which went for 200yen.
Trying to play Kingdom Hearts in order now. (⌒-⌒; )

Yes! It's here!

But I can't charge it. (⌒-⌒; )

Now to wait for the charger.

This endless waiting, anticipation and hope...

Come to me charger!

I was looking forward to the 3ds coming today only to find out in the morning that it had a clearance delay. I sulked the whole day. I then received a call from FedEx asking me for the title of the game I had bought. Here's to hoping they didn't open my package. It's cleared now so I should be getting it tomorrow! Yes, just one more day!


What's funny now is that I have Theatrhythm now but no console. ( ;´Д`)

Oh well, just a few more hours!

Note: An image does not have meaning until someone puts a caption on it. Even with a caption, people might interpret differently because of their different experiences in life. You should not force your opinions on others and expect them to understand how you think when they are not you, and can never be you. What might be an apple tree to you might be a pear tree to another person. There's no true answer. I don't see why then you should think that you are always right, that your opinions matter, that other people should think your opinions matter. There is no truth in this world since different truths exist for different people.

On another note, I watched Twelfth Night with my sister last night. We got there real early but we didn't queue till there was someone else sitting in front of us. It was a couple. They kindly offered us their mat since I refused to sit down and there was still an hour to go before the gates were opened.

They were extremely nice. I've never met such nice people since the start of the year! All I got were disappointments piling up one after another. It was a fresh feeling. We set our tiny mat next to theirs and they even offered us grapes! They refused to let us refuse. All I can say is, Thank You very much. You make me think that there are still people out there who are willing to help others with a smile. 

Maybe they thought we were kids? Still, thank you.

The play as a whole was very entertaining. All the actors were very natural especially Feste. I still can't get why my secondary school literature teacher pronounces Feste as Festee. There is one 'e' for a reason right? I liked how they incorporated some Singaporean flavor to the play with the 'karang guni' and even the Japanese 'so desu ne'. Cesario putting on sunbathing lotion on Orsino and touching stuff was epic! Also, the best part for me has to be the echo of 'ignorance'. 

I enjoyed it very much even with the heat and the rain. Think positive!

I guess these past 3 years as a literary student has paid off. Understanding the language of Shakespeare really made the whole experience much more enjoyable. Go to!

My Santagotchi finally knitted his Santa hat and made his clothes. He's 111 years old and 117 grams. Two more days before the child grows old! I call this an achievement.

You shouldn't buy the NA Dream Drop Distance because you have the JP one coming.


Also, you don't have the game alone but a Kingdom Hearts 3DS console! Why do you need the NA DDD when you don't even have an NA console? 


No think about this seriously, you aren't working till your results are out so where are you going to get the money for the game?

But... It is a collector's edition and it has all those stuff that the JP edition does not have! You know, like the picture cards and the ar cards... 

You have the ar cards from your bundle don't you?

Yeah, but what about the picture cards? The case? The ones that are going for $399 on the JP version?

Are you willing to pay that $75? It's up to you.

That's why we're having this conversation. I want an opinion.

I gave you my opinion but you seem bent on following your own!

Well, maybe it's because yours doesn't really help much.

Oh, now we're coming to that?

To what?

That! You know that thing you do where you spend all your money against your better judgement and my better judgement.

But your judgement is my judgement.

According to?

Us? You are me and I am you. So my judgement is your judgement, isn't it?

Oh, you're right about that, at least.

So should I still buy the collector's edition?

I. Must. Not. Buy. The. Mark. Of. Mastery. Kingdom. Hearts. Collector's. Edition.

I. Must. Not. I already bought the kingdom hearts 3ds. I. Must. Not.

My 3ds is finally on its way. Who knew shipping from Hokkaido to Tokyo would take a whole week? Here's to hoping that the customs don't hold my 3ds hostage. ( ;´Д`)

There is a limit to the number of times you should use the word "and" in a piece of narrative. And you know, people might not get irritated. And furthermore, there are other ways to connect sentences and not use the word "and".

And seriously and I mean it. Don't use so many "and"s! And do you get what I mean?

It irritated me enough to stop reading your book when I once loved your series so much. I even bought the book when it first came out in stores. (♯`∧´)

I'm now going to read the 1st three books before I go 'and'-sing on the last. 
(*`へ´*) This just means I'm not giving up on you, yet.

Sometimes I wish I could be the ideal reader.

I got a 'You've read for two hours!' badge from Kobo.
That's the amount of time I took to read Thomas Kyd's The Spanish Tragedy.
Well, for one, it was interesting. 
Two, it was a last minute thing.

I'm feeling accomplished now. 

And did I ever mention how adorable Yamapi is on Route 66? 
I watched the video diaries from my super awesome director's cut dvd box set and just wished he could be that carefree always.

Now is the winter of my discontent. I bought it from Amazon because they had the cheapest price to find that First Press on CdJapan has an external bonus of a B5-sized cear file. (´ε` )

But that would have been an extra 3000 yen.
