Blabbering of a Fool
早稲田渋谷シンガポール校 (Waseda Shibuya Senior High School) – 星蘭祭 (Seiransai) 2008
I’ll leave the writing for later…and the photos first. 🙂
In queue for my first time at a haunted hospital set-up in a classroom.
This friendly person was informing us of a 2-minute stall-up
(probably someone got punched inside…haha)
Random shot by me of the booklet handed out to every guest present
(Booklet leh!! We only have a piece of paper for local school events!!)
马面: ‘Oh, you looking for 牛头 huh? He on leave today.’
The crowd already forming up at around 0930 hours
Boy A: “Will you go out on a date with me?”
Boy B: “I’ll think about it.”
Boy C: *stares with vengeance at A*
2 of the cutest girls there (typical guy I am, I know)
The right on the left looks Caucasian to me, but her name is Aya,
and she’s ‘bloody’ fluent in Japanese
Blackboards! Now how long has it been since I last saw one up-close?
And seriously, you gotta admire the way they decorate it!!
The star attraction of ‘Okumuland’: Pizza Catcher
Dunno how many Pizza Hut pamphlets they used for the pizza discs
Again, a very cute girl manning the redemption counter
With the courage I could muster…
…I could only take a photo of the sweets on her table
She must be thinking, “What is this guy’s problem?”
The mega-size banner for the school festival
For your info, the entire banner was done by sticking
countless small pieces of paper on the cloth itself (Bravo!)
The ‘centre stage’ where the students go onto to
promote their various attractions by their class
(I only took downwards, never upwards, okay?)
The various traditional Japanese toys on display…
…but their main attraction is allowing guests to try out their uniforms
Didn’t do so, so I could only take a photo of the backdrop 🙂
You can just see how much effort they had put into *claps*
In case you are curious, ‘ねずみ’ (mouse) is written on the horse head,
since he’s promoting his class attraction, ネズミーランド (Mouse Land)
Ok, that’s a seriously scary stare you have there, Mr Mouse-Horse
The hardworking ‘terrors’ of the haunted hospital finally get to come out into the light!
Yup, if you’re wondering, that’s a guy in the middle 🙂
I dun need to repeat myself, do I?
Managed to snag a shot on the girl with the Cola can (cute face there)
And no, the girl standing behind wasn’t doing anything crazy,
just changing the soundtrack to…what else? One Love by 嵐
An interesting game where you have to hook small toys in the midst of the water balloons
with a hook attached to tissue paper (!?)
The walkway between the classroom block, sports facilities, and the dormitories
A newly constructed tennis court, as informed by our school tour guide
Erm…probably the founder of the school (Sorry, Mr Tour Guide,
but I seriously couldn’t hear what you were saying with that voice of yours)
The teaching creed…something close
A summer ‘beach’ cafe, ‘The House of the Sea’…
…but everything was sold out by the time we got there, so I had to take this photo at least
(2 levels…steady lah…)
Countless reading reports on display
(Got a headache trying to read them with my standard)
Calligraphy works (Nice)
T-shirts dyed by the students themselves…and every piece is a Giordano shirt
(talk about being loaded)
Artworks by the students
Art pieces by the students (door-signs in this case)
More artwork by the students (I like skulls, but dun ask me why…)
Took this while waiting for the movie produced by the students to start
(And it wasn’t hard to guess that it’s adapted from the dorama, ROOKIES)
It’s obvious girls are crazy over guys who dress up as girls
*cries in a corner*
A final shot of the school before we left
Miraculously, I woke up myself on time this morning, and managed to reach on time at 0900 at Clementi MRT station. Met with Ping Ting and her friend (name adding later…so sorry) and made our way to Waseda Shibuya Senior High School. Had no idea how to, but followed the flow (that early too!) and reached our destination. As for our time there, see above.
Just one thing I must ramble about.
A group of local youngsters (‘beng’s & ‘lian’s) had disgraced us Singaporeans.
Why? They celebrated the birthday of one of their kind, right there, on the premises of Waseda. They even tried to ‘quarantine’ the area using their bodies.
I didn’t see what happened next, ’cause we left the scene before I reached my limit, and go give them a piece of my mind.
C’mon, the school is not public place like a park, get it?
