Do you remember when we fell in love

i saw them in october and i knew it was love. for $159.41, i guess love doesn't come cheap.

in a few minutes it'll be 2010. somehow it feels more significant since we're going into the 10s. and it'll be JC next year too. another big step. i'll be 17 in june too; the world would have gone on for a year without him.

usually people tell you to look forward, to not let the past hold you down. but right now, i just don't want to let go. i guess some of us hated it, because seeing the same people almost everyday for 4 years can't be healthy. we start to see their bad points and then they start to rub us the wrong way; reminds me of family actually.

there was never much opportunity to be someone new; everyone knew you and they expected you to be... you. but that's not to say we never changed. the changes were often small, a gradual sort of thing, but when i look back it's just so amazing how we're so different.

and of course, there is always something special about a familiar environment. you're just more comfortable with everyone, like wearing a broken-in shoe, and you can make this random remark and everyone will know that you were referring to that event such many years ago. people have expectations of you, but you can also expect them to know what you like and dislike, what you want, what you'd enjoy.

even though school has ended for what seems like infinity already, it suddenly dawned on me that my 4 years of nanyang life are over. next year there'll be another bunch of 16 year old girls, all thinking about their life and their friends, their dreams and their fears. and even though we all went through the same education, moving along the same tunnel in life, somehow at the end of the tunnel, we'll branch out into our separate paths. i guess xeo was the first to start off, and it struck me then how brave she was to do something different. you go girl ;D

in two years it'll be the same thing again. with more of us going overseas, and sending a friend off at the airport will be a common occurence. there will always be ups and downs; bumps will come along and rock the boat. but i guess there's something we all have that no one else will. 4 years as thirteeners; it sounds so long yet it felt so short.

so it's hc next year. time to move on. i feel as if im letting go of the rope and letting myself fall into a chasm of unpenetrable darkness. i can only hope i'll learn to fly.


When you start on your journey to Ithaka,
then pray that the road is long,
full of adventure, full of knowledge.
Do not fear the Lestrygonians
and the Cyclopes and the angry Poseidon.
You will never meet such as these on your path,
if your thoughts remain lofty, if a fine emotion
touches your body and your spirit.
You will never meet the Lestrygonians,
the Cyclopes and the fierce Poseidon,
if you do not carry them within your soul,
if your soul does not raise them up before you.

Then pray that the road is long.
That the summer mornings are many,
that you will enter ports seen for the first time
with such pleasure, with such joy!
Stop at Phoenician markets,
and purchase fine merchandise,
mother-of-pearl and corals, amber and ebony,
and pleasurable perfumes of all kinds,
buy as many pleasurable perfumes as you can;
visit hosts of Egyptian cities,
to learn and learn from those who have knowledge.

Always keep Ithaka fixed in your mind.
to arrive there is your ultimate goal.
But do not hurry the voyage at all.
It is better to let it last for long years;
and even to anchor at the isle when you are old,
rich with all that you have gained on the way,
not expecting that Ithaka will offer you riches.

Ithaka has given you the beautiful voyage.
Without her you would never have taken the road.
But she has nothing more to give you.

And if you find her poor, Ithaka has not defrauded you.
With the great wisdom you have gained, with so much experience,
you must surely have understood by then what Ithaka means.

-- Constantine Cavafy

Happy New Year.

this is why i'm so obsessed:
Today I realized something. Once the last Harry Potter movie comes on DVD, that's the end of Harry Potter. If they follow their schedule's correctly, this should happen around 2012. The end of Harry Potter means the end of the world. MLIA


i dont know... but this is fun. and at the rate i'm going i shall end up like joey and post lots and lots and lots :D

though i suspect joey's posts are probably more meaningful than mine :/

nevermind. here's a mlia:
Today, i was doing a career and life management homework survey. One of the questions was "I am an indecisive person: agree, disagree or not sure" I circled "not sure". MLIA
that sounds a lot like me and zinc. which is why the two of us don't make very good presents-shoppers. especially not together alone.

ooo an oxymoron.

and your two thousand and nine singapore idol...

is a guy again -.-


i completely forgot about it until i saw this:
The other day I walked into my gym's pool early in the morning, hoping I would be the only person in the pool. As I rounded the corner of the locker room, I saw the lifeguard riding the squeegy like a broom and shouting Harry Potter spells. He indeed thought he was alone until I came walking in. I think I've found my new best friend. MLIA
and yes, we had wizard duels with sparklers. i still think me and pling won :D

gaga, ohh lala

class party was awesome. fluffy's alive! i hate musical chairs. spent lots of money yesterday. bought new sneakers. got lots of presents for friends. went to so many places with zinc. sales all around! stupid forever21. stupid korean shoe site which won't ship overseas. mean friend-of-sis who won't help me bring the shoes back. my elbow feels dislocated. scratch on my face is itching. i have no internet in my room. i like giving presents. hopefully the spirit of christmas will stay with me. cynicism scares me. i'm fine with being shallow. i'm feeling too lazy to write a proper full length post. that about sums it up. goodnight.

last christmas i gave you my heart

so my posts always seem to be a little late, but MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! and i'm supposed to be sleeping but since i woke up at 2pm today, my body clock is all messed up. and yeah i slept till 2 on christmas day, no worms for the bad bad late birdy.

anyway, considering i was at my grandma's house till midnight++ on christmas eve, sleeping in is justified even though all i did was play monopoly and write letters with sparklers. and my parents lost money in mahjong again. tsk tsk.

oh and of course, pardon the totally uglayy shots but hey, i'm still new to the whole camwhoring thing :D (heh my sis broke her horns, leaving me the only horn-y one -.-)

oooo and HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUNTIE SUSAN! (how cool it must be to have your birthday on christmas day!)

(and prince is really starting to look like a panda. he was sleeping under the christmas tree today; so cute!)

too tired to do anything

i've been meaning to post about my korea + shanghai trip, but somehow too many emotional ups and downs have left me drained and typing out a long post with pictures just seems impossible right now.

livejournal is bloody screwing with me. need to fix the odd posts damnit.

avatar's a good movie. best enjoyed with a packet of fruit loops.

i must not lust over shoes. that is a shallow thing to do. i shall lust over hot guys with long hair instead.

why am i going to the blogskins outing? someone might eat me.

and this post finally got posted at 12.06am cause odd's still screwing and i'm taking a break.

i'll post about korea tomorrow. or rather today, if ying doesn't run me to the ground. and i mean that literally.

i need more chocolate so that i can drown my woes in artery-clotting goodness.

have i mentioned how much...

wouldn't want to be in your shoes

i'm feeling kind of happy hormonal now from reading the book/ebook. i'm absolutely fangirling eric, who is this sexy viking vampire from the sookie stackhouse series, which is basically the book i've been reading with the booby girl.

anyway, i think my legs have been lagging cause now they ache from yesterday. me and ying sort of went to do field work for ODD at ion (read: window shopping :D) then went to run errands and get stuff for ODD. we bought 2meters of bubble wrap which is mighty awesome. i think i might buy some for popping fun next time i feel rich, which won't be too soon since i just blew 47bucks on a pair of shoes. and i wonder if i'll actually wear them since ying and i so stupidly wore heels (bah) yesterday and hence the aching feet.

my sis has recently been complaining about how i exclusively listen to mj songs only cause now i've got them stuck in her head too. but i cant help it, and i've been using his songs to sort of tackle my insomnia too. like i used to feel sleepy at 1am only, then i'd go to bed and toss and turn till around 3am before i finally fall asleep. and it didn't help that i was shit tired and had eyebags you could drown in. actually, i've always had the eyebags so nevermind. but listening to mj songs kinda lull me to sleep some time within the 1 hour i set on my ipod's sleep timer so it's better than tossing for 2hours.

and we saw a big pine at popular yesterday. so cute :D

"well after loving me, she said she couldn't love another"

oh double fucking damn

it just goes to show
how quickly things change

it's only once every blue moon that i actually visit facebook and somehow i came across these. laughed like mad, laughed some more, and boredom finally took over.
though i wonder why i always seem to be the one getting owned :[

fingers crossed

went to watch Christmas Carol today with ying, zinc, sming and addie and the movie did absolutely nothing for me. since i haven't actually seen/read any other version (except for a warped one which involved a vampire so that doesn't count), i was kinda hoping for it to be more... impactful. but the whole mood(?) of the thing was mostly ---------- in other words, completely monotonous.

before it started zinc said some reviews mentioned it was scary so i was all hyped up for some good horror. but apart from a few very small parts, it wasn't. how absolutely disappointing. and i think some parts that were meant to be scary were actually quite rediculously funny. like the laughing skull. honestly that just reminded me of some MJ video with a moonwalking skeleton to the point where i burst out laughing. and speaking of the spirits, i couldn't stand the way the first one talked so... draggy and echoe-y? it was like he thought we were idiots and he had to speak slowly for us -.- and then the second one just kept laughing and that was irritating. he also had a lot of chest hair, which is a big no-no. and since he was wearing a bath robe thing, i almost thought he was going to flash when he whipped it open :/ and having Ignorance and Want (yeah with the capital I and W; talk about corny) hiding at his feet was just disturbing since i think he was wearing a dress/skirt or something. i just had too many images of them crawling under to take a peak at the big guy.

i guess this is why ying thinks i'm vulgar. and at this rate i think i'm going to hell :/

anyway, ohdoubledamn seems to coming along alright, though it's quite slow but hey, we have our first sold out item already :D and since it's always better to end on a positive note, i'll stop here and continue reading my book. apparently my sis is reading another vampire series. i wonder if hers has booby girls too :/
