‘The stories are taken from those told by grannies to grandchildren in many countries and in many languages – French, Italian, Spanish, Catalan, Gaelic, Icelandic, Cherokee, African, Indian, Australian, Slavonic, Eskimo.’ In his preface to the final title in our Rainbow Fairy Book series, Andrew Lang describes the diverse origins of these tales. They vary from ‘The Ugly Duckling’ by Hans Christian Andersen to ‘The White Slipper’ – a reversal of the Cinderella story, in which the king loses his precious white slipper and offers his daughter’s hand to whoever finds it.
The introduction to this edition is by award-winning writer Sara Maitland, whose most recent book, Gossip from the Forest, explores the provenance of fairy tales. Tomislav Tomić is a Croatian artist and children’s author, whose detailed and lively artwork includes a decorated title page, illustrated endpapers and numerous black-and-white drawings. Like all the Rainbow Fairy Books, this volume is beautifully produced, with coloured top-page edges, and luxurious Caxton Wove paper.
Baked some iPhone cookies to trick cops into pulling me over, then I just take a bite and ask if cookies are against the law.
Was feeling pretty angsty with all the crap strewn around my bedroom. Moving back in CAPT means everything is displaced!! Spent the day cleaning out and arranging things. Quite an emotional process really I got rid of a lot of old childhood items. I also found hidden money HAHAH hilarious. There was this container with a lock- and when I opened it I found a gold ingot. For a while I thought it was real. THEN LOL I HELD IT AND IT’S LIKE LIGHT. LOL IT’S PLASTIC.
Omg why am I so troll I don’t even. LOL
Cleared out my bookshelf- I’m surprised I own so many books! Gave them to my sister- she can sell or give them away, I don’t really care haha. Don’t like old book smells or even book smells (yeah yeah judge me)- as in I don’t really LOVE and try to inhale the smell- this stuff is reserved for
- BREAD!! Bakeries.
- SHIN RAMYUN and spicy lamian
- air con when it just starts up.
- paper bags.
- paper bags with seaweed shaker fries or in other words, more MSG.
So anyway I’m busy entertaining thoughts of travelling for a month and more after graduation next year! Not so much of a grad trip but more like cause I can crash my friends while they are studying overseas. This trip will mostly be in Asia! So far I really want to visit my friends in Korea and Shanghai.
Went to join a bunch of contests online HAHAHA well.. give me points for trying :)
This holiday I won’t be spending much- I guess I already spent a bomb on my birthday party so being thrifty should be easy.
Will try to sell more things, give and throw things away- and NOT BUY ANYTHING. The most heartbreaking thing so far is me not allowing myself to buy G2 black refills :’( Fkng sad haha but I will use up those ballpoint pens at home. Also found a lot of half-used notebooks today so that’s great :)
Sorry but I won’t be going to the cinema for a long, long time. Time to save~~! Hopefully eating less would also mean a slimmer me. Errrp think I thickened during the exam period oops :(
Will also try to find more money earning ventures! Gonna work hard.
your love is so clear to me
Holidays! Moved out of CAPT in a midst of frenzy… lots of activities + musical + birthdays in the past week!
Got to hang out with the hulkies- I love them very much. Tulpar came under attack and it really upset me and a lot of other people. :/
Am doing some musical things now, am sometimes quite alarmed by how big this can be and all the untapped potential in this. As the publicity head I have learnt so damn much in these few months. Have networked. Have emailed ‘official’ adult-ish people and organisations. Have learnt how to lead a team and have learnt so many things on the way- I think we are all growing together!
Am still helluva scared but scared is good because scared means that I’m not in my comfort zone and I am feeling challenged. Which means I’m not very bored and I will indeed try my best.
It is very very important to have emotional pillars of support in trying times like this- jeezus haha lost count of days where I have felt so frustrated or lost.
Really hope we can pull through this and make this production a success! May not mean much to people not involved now but it really involves so much blood, sweat and tears for us.

In the self portraits above, JeeYoung Lee spends weeks and sometimes months creating elaborate scenes in her tiny 11.8 x 13.4 x 7.8-foot studio.
just a round-up of my modules this semester!
- SC3101: Social Thought and Social Theory
Lecturers: Prof Vineeta + Dr Kim
I was initially very apprehensive of this course. Thought it would be extremely dry and horrible, but boy was I wrong. Am very pleased to learn a lot, and my interest in Marx has… maxed. Hahaha.
- SC3221: Qualitative
Prof Gana: Haha. I… don’t know what I was doing in this module but Prof Gana is a fun and inspiring guy who shares his experiences in qualitative work. Unfortunately his teaching style isn’t very compatible for me haha D:
- LAT1201: Thai 1
This was fun! But I would recommend the european languages if you’re looking for something easier. The thai script is absolutely beautiful, the aacaans friendly and helpful- but hell if the tones give me a headache. Plus you can’t google and it’s difficult to learn imo. FRENCH FRENCH SPANISH (NEXT SEM)
- JS2216: Post- war Japan Anime & Film
Really liked the film part by Dr Lim, not so much the anime part but it was still fun watching artsy fartsy style animations (Atama Yama) and strange avant garde stuff and of course Kaiba. But I would say JS2213 Jp Popular Culture is more fun! Because we went into manga and Nana. :) Not a stranger to film studies so… being introduced to Ozu is really nice. I like his works.
- Community Leadership (CAPT) GEM2903
Very enlightening- learnt a lot of things. Best parts of class were the experiences with the MPs, Pulau Semakau trips, learning from Dr Tan and Dr(?) Leong Ching, and actually taking classes with my CAPT friends.
Next semester: Gonna hit up 2 sociology modules, probably Religion and Social Transformations in China.. sadly both exams fall on the same day, and it ends really late too (8 May). But oh well. Interest > shortcuts.
Hopefully Spanish, Reading Visual Images & CAPSTONE.
