my spoils of the day: Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh, Samurai Champloo and Demon Diary. Three random pairs of earrings and ACJC choir concert notes.
So I sort of abandoned math remedial to hang out with Faza. In which we went to Cineleisure to watch Star Trek but epicly failed by not checking the time slots beforehand. There was only one time slot and we missed it by half an hour or so. And Lido's only screening time was at 9pm. D: (but there's aways torrents to rely on.)
Ended up having lunch at Pastamania and later went onto Suntec to some book fair thing in which there was a lack of good books (and an abundance of chinese books) so I ended up buying manga which were cheaper than normal, though there were a lot of sucky titles around as well. (I want to rewatch Samurai Champloo!)
After a few rounds of aimless wondering, we ended up going shopping instead, in which I saw quite a number of stuff that I wanted to buy, mainly shoes, except that I can't walk in heels and expect myself to not trip unglamorously.
Faza left at about 7pm, leaving me behind as I went on to watch ACJC's choir concert at the Esplanade. (and also the reason why I chose to go to the Suntec book fair instead of some Da Vinci exhibition at the science center, heh.) It's quite strange going to a concert alone and sitting beside random strangers, but I find that I don't mind, and it's like pretty cool in that sense? Haha, anyway, I'll be alone for the Moscow Chamber Choir thing as well.
The concert ended at about 9 plus, and I then spent about an hour hanging around HMV. At first, I was just going in to check out whether they had Patrick Wolf's new album, in which they did, at freaking $28. (I am highly in doubt of their prices after charging me $28.50 for AFI's Decemberunderground where I found it at $20 somewhere else.) But I ended up hanging around more because I suddenly saw that they were airing Laraku's newest live concert dvd! Although I was listening to Damaris, I suddenly recognized Hyde's voice from the speakers and I was like :DDDD and I immediately turned my attention to the tv sets and watched for quite some time. Haha. It wasn't until the fact that I was afraid there weren't any trains left that made me leave.
So yeah, quite a fun day out, but NO STAR TREK! ):
(ended up spending $12 on food; $7 on coffee; $5 on earrings; $10 on manga; $9 on book; $2 on file: a total of $45?! OMFG)
