        hey girls, second night in London!

        i will try to post pictures when i take some. it's been a whirlwind of activity and i'm constantly out the whole day running about and trying to settle stuff. there're so many silly little things that i need to buy, like baskets for my toiletries and laundry, floor mats, face towels, hand soap... things that i take for granted in singapore but can't seem to find here! when i do find them, they're exhorbitantly expensive. eventually, i'll have to stop converting and take the plunge.

        feeling really down now, since i don't quite like the place and i haven't quite settled in yet. missing my bf lots mainly, because i haven't managed to have our daily hour long phonecalls. somehow, without that, i can't seem to cope too well. so i'm basically counting down until he arrives and living in limbo.

        have to get used to being with my mom 24-7 too since i'm so used to being indepedent. how ironic huh?

        i'm trying to work up enough excitment now to head downstairs to the bar and socialise with a bunch of people getting drunk, getting to know each other, and then forgetting names immediately. yay.



        sorry girls, in a really blue mood now. hopefully, it'll improve in a while.

          hi dear,

          glad to know you've arrived safely and that you're slowly adapting to your new environment. everything sounds very exciting.

          well, one good thing about having a small space is that it can get really cosy. and everything is within reach.

          how's the weather there? and when is school starting?

          do keep in touch more often. as mentioned, i'm crossing my fingers that i'll be able to go over in nov. by then, you'll be well aquainted with the shopping areas.

          take care now.

            Xue, don't worry. It's always hard the first couple of weeks, but you'll settle in very soon.

            Hang in there I will see you on the 6th of Dec if you're still up for a meet!

                            hey girls!

                            it's wed morning my side and i'm getting ready for school. after i slept off my jet-lag and persuaded my mom to take it a little easier, it's got better. i'm feeling lots happier now, especially since my flatmates are lovely.

                            we went clubbing at the Student's Union yesterday, where we met a million random people and promptly forgot their names. the place was a mad crush of people! thankfully, people here are v friendly. you can just walk up to a group of people and introduce yourself. i guess it's because everyone's new and all of us just want to meet more people. it's really lovely how everyone here is so friendly and warm.

                            unfortunately, NO ONE can pronounce my name. URGH. they all think i'm shirley! no offence to any 'shirley's here, but i really don't like that name when i'm called it. it's just so not me! but i'd have to give up soon and concede defeat by giving myself an english name. it's better than waiting for them to give me one! any suggestions?




                            thanks for being so supportive girls. your little posts have really helped brighten up my mood and reminded me that there're still people who care for me even if i'm all alone in London.

                            you girls take care too and keep on meeting up k? and if you're coming to london, call me!!!

                              Xue, nice to hear to you are slowing settling in and liking your environment What about just using your present nick in CC? Unique enough I guess, and you must have liked it that was why you chose it....

                                sounds like the problems i had back in nus!!! got called everything except my actual name.

                                why don't you shorten your name to either 'Xue' or 'Lin'?

                                'xue' is short and sweet. although you might end up getting called 'sure' instead.....
                                'lin' is easy enough even for english tongues

                                or try this page for ideas.


                                as an aside, an aunt of mine simply could NOT pronounce my english name, and even now, still calls me 'xue ling'
