24 Weird JayWalk Things - Part 2

... continuing from the last blog entry.

13. Speaking of NS, everyone thought I was a weirdo in the sense that I was the only one who kept volunteering for duties on Sundays and public holidays while everyone else was avoiding it like the plague. The fact of the matter was that we would get a day off-in-lieu with every Sunday/Holiday duty performed and I had been patiently amassing them to an extent where I spent my last day in camp 60 days ahead of my peers.

14. Speaking of last days in camp. I went to do my very first pair of contact lens during that time. Unfortunately, the RGP lens lasted only 2 hours when the left-side lens fell out at the Far East Plaza taxi stand. No thanks to my itchy hands for rubbing my eye due to initial discomfort. I ended up having to top up an extra $120 to replace the left side. Damn.

15. Speaking of losing contact lens, it happened again when I was playing badminton at the NTU SRC. The shuttlecock was smashed right into my eye causing the lens to shatter into several pieces. Getting my eyeball forcefully squashed into an alternate shape was excruciatingly painful as I found myself collapsed onto the floor, dazed. I managed to remove the final fragment at around 10.30 pm, 5 hours later. Yup. It was the left-side again.

16. Speaking of left-side lens, I lost it at Ridley’s (again!). In my state of drunken buzz, I must have accidentally rubbed my eye again (RGP lens takes about 6 weeks to get used to it). I knew the lens was gone right away on two counts. 1) My left side vision was instantly blurred and 2) I felt something snapped under my Doctor Martens.

17. Speaking of Doctor Martens, it was perhaps my favourite pair of shoes of all time. It was a suede nubuck shoe and it must have been my good fortune to pick light brown. Puke goes well with light brown.

18. Speaking of puke, I got so drunk one time that I had to open the car door (while it was parked), bend over while seated in the car and puked my guts out. I subsequently tumbled out of the car into the pool of my own fresh barf. Brilliant.

19. Speaking of tumbling out, I woke up the next morning with 4 stabbing pains on my chest. When I opened my eyes, I realised that the dog was standing on my chest, wagging its tail happily.
20. Speaking of pets, I had a cat by the name of Whiskey when I was bunking in NTU Hall 4. We both liked Johnny Walker Black Label.

21. Speaking of Johnny Walker Black Label, I had an optic-measure (see picture right) in my hostel room when I was staying in Hall 1. I had since passed it on to Amy when I got evicted and barred from the hostel.

22. Speaking of Amy, I knew her a week before her Freshmen Orientation Camp, of which she was an applicant that I was going to reject due to overwhelming response. As I was talking to her on the phone in my attempt to inform her of her unsuccessful application, we clicked. It was 1994 and the World Cup was ongoing. Bonus points for she was a hardcore football fan. Long story short, she got a place in the camp after that at the expense of some unfortunate applicant whose application was previously accepted. iKelong.

23. Speaking of Freshmen Orientation Camp, Amy showed up the night before the camp to join the rest of the seniors in a TOGO session. She was probably the only freshman to stumble into the Camp check-in registration the next morning, severely hung-over while the rest of her counterparts were all dressed to impress.

24. Speaking of TOGO sessions, our favourite game was Indian Poker. Will explain the rules of the game if there is enough interest to warrant a blog about it.

Ok, that's it. Phew!

Now comes the fun part. Who do I tag? Let's see...

KoreanHouseWife: Excellent. You're the first one to check in!

Anna: I've considered that option last year but the thought of having only 7 years of good eyesight before 老花眼 sets in (usually from 40 years old) and screwing it all up again, I decided against it. Not worth the money for something that would cost me $7k at Dr Jerry Tan.
Perhaps later when Lasik can resolve 老花眼 as well.

Akk: Take care ok? I will give you my number when I see you online.

Babe: Heh heh... thanks for giving face hor!

Jaslyn: Last time complain I neber tag you. Now tag you, you complain! Wah raoz!!!

KoreanHouseWife: Thank you Ms Black Monday!

Derrick: Yup. Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) lens are hard plastic lens in contrast to the soft and/or Toric lens. Hence the brittle shattering as the impact of the smash was that great.
We were playing doubles and my side adopted the front-back formation. My stupid partner lob the shot a bit too short resulting in a smash at close range. I was literally blown away.
