oh yeah, it's graduation time. 8:09 am
It's been a hectic last few days - grad night on Friday, our Commencement ceremony followed by the YMCA Groov-Y Salsa Night event that we were performing for on Saturday, and Ming's birthday brunch today @ Relish. This means that I'm totally sleep-deprived and worked to the bone, really.
On the other hand, it also means that I'm officially graduated! Eeks.
Friday: Memoires - Grad Night 2009
It was like prom night all over again. I honestly was quite surprised to see everybody that dressed up - in gowns, full suits and all. On hindsight, I suppose that was quite expected since it was afterall held in the Fullerton ballroom. A great improvement in location compared to the RJC '04 prom, really! (It was held at - get this - the Suntec ballrooms. Sad right?) The night was filled with loads of phototaking and minimal eating...but the food was seriously pretty good.
My chosen dress for the night - something I bought so long ago I forgot all about it and hence never got to wear it. Finally, a chance to!
I went there thinking I would end up vaguely overdressed, but hey, I wasn't even close! Everybody looked so nice all dressed to kill, it made me happy just looking around the ballroom. :)
Saturday: Graduation Day
After four years of tears, blood and toil, we, the graduating batch of 2009 have made it through and Saturday was the mark of our triumph! SMU Commencement 2009 (translation: graduation) was held at Suntec City - 3 hours' worth of dreadfully boring ceremony thingamajigs to wade through just so that we could go up on stage for our 10 seconds of fame and glory and receive our certificates from the Deans. Very pointless really when I think about it, but I guess it's more for our parents than anything else, and besides, all the photowhoring and fun we had in the graduation gown after that made it all worth it. :P
Crystal, Miche and I headed back to school for a brief photowhoring session (full of jumps and giggles) and it was superrrrrr fun and funny! Haha.
And just for laughs, as well as to show you how much we'd desecrated the sanctity of stiff-upper-lip-kind-of-formal-graduation-stuff, here goes.
