Tuesday, May 29, 2012HELLO GUYS, ITS MAGIC MONDAY AGAIN!
Today I woke up with 恋爱-ing playing in my head...at 3pm.
I had had the most awesome dream, though I cannot recall much of it any more. I do remember waking, and then going back to sleep twice in order to extend the it though. In one part of the adventure, I had felt like a prostitute of some sort, although I hadn't been selling sex. I was with a bunch of whore-looking females, and we were busy putting masking tape on ourselves to make a dress. The objective was to create a most tight-fitting garment.Well apparently it's illegal, cos when the police arrived, my dream self hid in the toilet and tried to pass off as an athlete (I had had a change of clothes). After this part of the dream, I went on into an unrelated one about passing checkpoints and stuff. Sort of like Running man/amazing race, but not really that either. I kept going back to dreamland because I had wanted to know what the subsequent checkpoints were. Anyway, the most memorable scene is the tape dress one because I don't understand what had prompted such a strange alter-reality in my head.
Upon waking up, I got dressed and went off to EXPO to meet Pearlyn and Wei An. It had taken me 45minutes to leave the house because I rarely get to wear non-work clothes, and I had had trouble deciding what to wear to make the most of this off-day opportunity. I think I'm different around my school friends now because I'm always in more hurry to talk and to play. It's what happens when one tries to condense a large part of life into a few hours here and there. I don't have the luxury of time to "chill-out with friends" because chilling out is too slow and I feel like a dying man - I have to rush. I have to tell them about my life quickly, I have to speed through updates about theirs, and I also have to reminisce the old days hurriedly to affirm the past, before it's back to work and routine again. I think if I were to know that I only have an x number of weeks to live, those x weeks would be rather meaningless and pitiful. At the eulogy, people would say "Ah, the poor girl - represents Man's frail attempts to capture Life before it's gone, y'know? She never did succeed, did she?", then they'd put on a grim look and carefully shake their head in my direction.
Well, the day had been nothing short of fabulous though! Pearl, Weian and I started off at the John Little sales. We didn't buy much, but we had had a good time meeting Pearl's mum. Then we went off to the Food Fair and I ate really good Penang Laksa! The white coffee samples were good too. I haven't had coffee for so long. Time passed quickly while we chatted over Thai pineapple rice (we shared a packet so it was $0.66 per person), and I must say, it's a good bargain for $2. The best pineapple rice I've had is the one that Esther cooks though! I love her cooking...and her mum HAHA. I tend to like my close friend's parents a lot. I like Esther's, Hanxi's, Jennifer's, Pearlyn's(although I'm not as close to Pearlyn's compared to the abovementioned 3), Jovina's, Chua's, and WanYing's! My favourite joke is the one that Wan's Dad had made about '不要紧', complete with the 'slaughter gesture' at the neck. It just tickles me so!
I parted from pearl and weian and about 8pm for a movie. Ah, I'd love to meet them again soon. Thanks Weian, for the photo frame and postcard from hongkong!
I caught Men in Black 3 with my Dad and Bro. It was a really enjoyable outing! I think the movie's better than the Avengers. It's got great and thankfully non-overt comedy lines, and also a little bit of sentiment towards the end. The characters are awesome too...Griffin is a definite fav, although his head is an uncomfortable sight haha. The day ends well. I'm thankful for a life like this.
Now, it's time to decide how to enjoy tomorrow. I must make the best of it. I think I'll start with a coffee, and then a book and a smoothie, or perhaps watch something on the lappie...with the smoothie. Then I'll plan my life or do something romantic, like painting.
I'd probably just end up sleeping until 3pm again though.
Okay, time to watch online shows!
(4K and 5C45, I've missed you guys!)

Kimi ni todoke's Kazehaya Shota
Definitely Mr. Cute-Smile!
I like Yoshida-san's character too.
Here's more Kazehaya:
(and a bit of Sawako above)
(plus one Yoshida)
The plot of the live action drama is nothing much to speak of. The anime seems to have more comedic elements, but too bad Miura Haruma's dashing face is a cartoon. Kazehaya is really refreshing to watch though!
Plot wise, I'd suggest 1 Litre of Tears or Zettai Zareshi over this. Zettai Zareshi's male leads aren't as cute but the drama definitely has more depth and insights to the human condition. Same to 1 Litre of Tears. Both are tearjerkers but they have many funny moments too. Besides, I'd rather Zettai Zareshi than Jue Dui Nan You (Jap vs Taiwan's version of Absolute Boyfriend).
after watching this and also having sped through A Frozen Flower (which stars Song Ji Hyo!), I'm going back to Running Man. I'd have to finish these dramas as well as others that Han had suggested before University commences, because then I'm gna have to be focused.
I WOKE AT 249PM TODAY AND DRESSED NICELY TO THE LIBRARY TO BORROW SOME BOOKS, THEN READ A BIT AT MACS WITH SOME AWESOME FRIES WITH CURRY AND SWEET&SOUR SAUCE, HAD JAP DINNER WITH MY FOREVER-FAMILY, CAME HOME TO THESE ONLINE SHOWS. THE DAY IS AWESOME. I END THE NIGHT BY SENDING FLYING KISSES TO JOVINA SINCE SHE'S BACK BESIDE MY BLOCK HAHA, AND ALSO BY WATCHING THE RUNNING MAN THAT SHE INTRODUCED TO ME SOME SATURDAYS AGO.
LIFE IS WONDERFUL ON MONDAYS WHEN MY MONDAY IS YOUR SATURDAY.
I LOVE LIFE LIKE THIS.
Saturday, May 19, 2012I'm in the best mood ever now!
I'm really thankful for having amazing friends and family^^
Today my cherished Esther and her cute mum gave me support in such an unexpected way - it touches me immensely!
Then I ended the day lepaking with my dearest Wan, and I'm ever-grateful that she's by my side.
The both of them cheer me up so much. I feel damn blessed.
I sincerely hope Wan won't feel sorry or bad, cos she's been nothing but a lifesaver and a gift from God. According to the fengshui thing about the career of the rooster zodiac, we will have a hard time at work but gui4 ren2(benefactors) would be there to help us pull through. Yep, definitely GUI ren haha!
Besides, the thought of Jovina having an awesome time with her family also puts me in a good mood. It's a great feeling to have friends whom you feel happy for and happy about!
Add to the fact that Han said we should hang out soon, and that I saw her with her mum and her mum's endearing friend on thursday, I must say, I have nothing to complain about in my life (except maybe that I haven't had enough time to spend with my family).
Wei An, thank you for texting me man. You are yi4 ji2 bang4!Wen Zhong too, thanks!
I came home to a funny note from my mum: (translated)
finish 2&3, leave a slice of durian cake. You could finish the durian cake too actually...I'm worried that it may spoil over the night.
If it spoils, then let Papa have it;-)
Hahaha. I've been sobbing every now and then when I'm in my room, in the bus, or at the park...perhaps its hormonal sot-ness, but I can't help thinking about how much regret I'd have for not spending enough quality time with them, and how much I've been being unfair and unkind to them over my teen years. I read about things like "When we're busy growing up, don't forget that our parents are growing old.", and I think about how much my parents must miss my grandparents, and I feel sorry that I'm not the best source of joy, even at best.
Despite having such sentiments, I have still kept my behaviour and actions unchanged though. It's really just too strange to suddenly love my parents openly. The essence of traditionally stoic Asian members still lives in me.
So, besides that, I've been spending my time on Running Man.
I need to start research on halls to decide which hall to apply to..
I cooked sauteed foie gras for Mother's day. The celebration was poorly orchestrated because the boys in my family and I were scheduled for a movie in the night, and I had started cooking late. Plus, although I had revised the recipe a zillion times already, when it finally came down to cooking, I was pretty nervous and silly haha. Then I was grouchy at the movie because my brother kept shaking his leg and was leaning into my seat. Sigh. Talk about being a 'joy' to hang out with. In my head and heart, I say "Family time, thank you for this, God." but on my face, it read "TAMADE STOP ANNOYING ME".
I googled "how to be a better family member" but the results were not very good responses to my predicament.
well anyway, it has been a lovely day finding out that I have so many people to be thankful for, and I'm off to finish 2&3, as well as to have another bit of cake.
signing off, sunny side up,
Thursday, May 17, 2012Family is my priority.
Wednesday, May 9, 2012I don't know why, but I suddenly experience such fatigue that I don't feel I can manage to go through another day in life, let alone university. Why have I not recharged from this supposed break after a levels. Signing off before work, A million sighs.
get one from cbox!
