'pa, r u free today? can u help me change money?'
'how much do u want?'
'xxx indian rupees, xxx sri lanka rupees, n xxx us dollars.'
'sri lanka? u r going sri lanka?'
'this tues. for a wk.'
'b4 ur expedition?'
so, thats how my parents found out i was going to sri lanka.
never had i so much cash in a white envelope b4.
(2nd sentence censored. serve u right for not reading my blog regularly.)
SIF gave 24k.
we fundraised 7k
we came up w another 9k for accomodation/fd/etc
thats a mindboggling 40k.
all given to our leaders.
w much money comes great responsibility.
some leaders had absconded w it all b4.

chance encounter w my mom at the bank this morn turned into a prolonged lunch appt.
managed to get all my toiletries except for pimple cream
n bcoz i refused to wear paper undies,
i came back with 12 new lycra undies.
(if i pack 30 such undies w me, i dont need to do laundry! luckily i have no qualm w wearing the same shirt n berms for 30 days.)
-stuffs 30 undies, 1 shirt n 1 pair of shorts into backpack.
n bcoz i lent my fave backpack to my fave bro,
i have to borrow the not-my-fave backpack from the not-my-fave bro.

i woke up this morn n out of habit, picked up 'lifestory'.
noted that it was 23rd may n realised that it was my bro's bday.
since the past 945698 yrs, his bday never held any sig importance to me, i didnt even bother sending him a sms.
went abt my day as usual till my dad sent me a msg telling me that it was alvin's 21st bday n that i shld send him a sms.
n not only that, i dont even have alvin's no.
i make an excellent sister.
i have clumsily severed the cable linking the modem to my lappy n my dad refused to fix it for me.
so for now, ive been banished to the first floor.
(its the only unused cable left)
luckily i was able to link my lappy up to the internet if not, ive to use the sick jaundiced comp.
i cant use the net in the comfort of my own room.
no more air con.
no more tv.
no more hi fi.
just pesky mosquitoes accompanying me as i type thruout the night.
n part of the cultural exchange w india, i have to learn )(*&^%$# chi dance. wtf, of all things, come on man, do i look like a dancer? do i do i do i? (we even have that pink feathery fan.)
but who knoes, i might find my true calling.
