Welcome to the new year and our Faculty!
Here's something to ponder upon...

Imagine you are tasked to think of COOL and ATTRACTIVE slogans about ARTEMIS, what could you think of?

Here's my take on this problem: *TING*

go to 'www.sloganizer.net', a one stop solution for SLOGANS! All you need to do is just to type in what you want to sloganize and 'click', you get your cool slogan!

At first, I was progressing well, confident of finding a good slogan...
«artemis - One name. One legend.»
«artemis wanted.»
«You can't beat artemis.»
«There is no life without artemis.»

Then after several more tries...!@#$%
«artemis, to hell with the rest.»
«The president buys artemis.»
«The artemis man.»
«artemis, you'll love it!»

Some slogans better left for other names:
«artemis on the outside, tasty on the inside.»--------KFC chicken
«Swing your artemis.»--------Wii.
«artemis after a long day.»------OSIM i.massage
«artemis extra dry.»--------Tutorials. nah, just jokin'
«artemis for president.»------Sarah Palin for 2013

After even more clicks...!@#@$!#$!@#!!****&****
«Ooh la la, artemis.»
«Halleluja, it's an artemis.»

After even more clicks...!@#@$!#$!@#!!****&**** x 10^1000
«artemis is better than chocolate.»
«Do it with artemis.»
«I lost weight with artemis.»

At the end of the day, I guess it would still a better choice to think of a slogan ourselves.

Dramafeste '09

Hey Artemis :D

It's that time of year again when your dear A/ICs make our passionate pitch to you to participate in the eagerly anticipated Dramafeste! Remember last year when Dennis was engulfed by the seven sins?

This year it'll be a whole new experience with amazing twists in plot and the theme, hello goodbye (:

It'll be held on the 5th and 6th of March (One week before blocks), thursday and friday.

Due to the late intake of J1s, we'll be recruiting j2s for backstage/props/costumes&makeup roles! AIN'T THIS EXCITINGGGGG. It'll be your last chance to relive your orientation days before the horror of As strike us. Do contact Sabrina (91151279) or Huijuan (91709385) if you're interested!

Or if you think they look too scary or intimidating you can just tell your CT reps and they'll pass the message along :D But rest assured that they're very nice, erm, DOCILE, and friendly people:D

Join in the fun,

Be the ONE.
(backstage in this case heh)

<3 Your lovely AICS(:

Well, I hope all of you (that is, those of you that chose to be good, upright Hwachong students and not pon school) had a terrific time soaking yourselves in today’s festivities and taking in the celebratory mood (and scrumptious food)! On behalf of the Artemis Fac Comm, here’s the customary – though nonetheless heartfelt – THANK YOU to all those wonderful people who poured out their energy, time as well as blood, tears and sweat (in addition to other bodily fluids) to make the street market a success! And for those who bothered to spend the precious last dollar of your hard-earned pocket money on the mediocre cup of ice cream or semi-liquefied jelly or garish faux hair dye, albeit out of the urgency of hunger or in the name of pure fun, THANK YOU for contributing your little but meaningful part in stimulating our dire economy.

So, cheers to a Happy New Year! Remember to spend your time wisely; here’s a recommended list of things to do:

1. Travel to as many friends’ houses as possible to demand cash in return for oranges (which used to be a great deal in the past). Ensure that your balance of payment isn’t in a deficit by checking that your inflow of hongbao money exceeds the outflow of the cost of oranges (plus transportation surcharges, GST and VAT). In the event that you make the horrifying discovery that your hongbao contains an unjustly small sum of money, compensate for this shortfall by eating more of your hosts’ CNY cookies and leaving their place with a flash of your most discontented pout.

2. Sleep. Yes, getting sufficient slumber is the formula to leading a wholesome, healthy and balanced life. But because of the new-and-improved discipline system evilly lovingly conceived by the dearly beloved discipline committee, we are liable to harsher punishment for unbecoming behaviour, like giving our eyes a well-deserved break during lectures. Since blatantly dozing off in the middle of an enthralling physics narrative of the core principles and applications of superposition is by no means a sensible option for the cultivated Hwachong learner, make the best use of your CNY holiday to SLEEP! A lot.

3. Do your HOMEWORK. This final point is put last on this short list, possibly because it is the least anticipated aspect we wish to address while basking in our ethereal world of festive fantasies (like the impossible hope of actually seeing a growth in hongbao revenue). But at the back of our mind, there is always the nagging feeling of something left undone. Take, for instance, Issues and Ideas. Or the Math holiday package. Or the Economics tutorial. How then, can you banish these perpetual, pestering promptings pulsating persistently throughout a supposedly relaxing and enjoyable break? (Note the use of the word “supposedly”.) The key: finish your work, or at least, do the necessary portions that give the illusion that you’ve done your due share.

That's all I have to say. Wishing you all the best the new year! May it be filled with more optimism than your J1 promo grades.

Love and happiness,
(The tyrannical Supreme Dictator of 6K)

Hey there! =)

If you're still wide awake, it can only mean 5 things...

1) You're SO excited about school that you can't sleep :D

2) You're SOO in love with your holiday homework that you can't (or rather, MUSN'T) sleep :D:D

3) You're SOOO into the latest hand-eye-brain (mouse/on-screen character/tactics to win) co-ordination training kit (maybe a Wii?) that you can't sleep :D:D:D

4) You're SOOOO looking forward to a fantastic new year with your beloved class mates, REALLY excited about welcoming your juniors, not forgetting attending Fac Outing 1 with them, that you can't sleep :D:D:D:D

5) You're SOOOOO happy that you can't sleep.

Yeah, happy.

HAPPY just feeling that warmth in your tummy, knowing that the past year has been spent really quickly......but really meaningfully. Recognise that feeling. And trust that we will be spending more happy times together as one faculty in 2009 :)

Here's Wishing Everyone in Artemis a(nother) Really Great Year Ahead!

Mug Hard. Play Hard.
