A quick update from Singapore

So how long as it been since my last entry?
I didnt even check...but definitely a long time since my last.
I am finally back home.
The dread of returning to a place I call home but sometimes dont really feel like it is has passed and I have settled down here much better than expected (albeit going to be here for only 2+ weeks).

So what has happened since my return (will avoid the nonsense I was up to back in Brissy for now)?
Makan, Xmas Mass, Makan, Meet old friends, Makan, Got caught in the rain, Makan, Meet new friends, Makan, Lost my Voice, Makan, Went to KTV with no voice.
That kinda sums up everything for now.
And YES, I lost my voice. Can you imagine the agony of not being able to sing at a KTV? Hahaha...but it was great fun just watching the gang sing and having fun.

It's late, I need sleep so that I can continue tomrw.
Will update with more details soon.
And perhaps blog about the Xmas party we had back in Brissy.
Till then...


Team Singapore Out

Team Singapore is out of the Amazing Race.


Driven up the wall

The newest MrBrownShow podcast is driving me nuts.
25 classic TV theme songs and you have to name them.
I confirmed 12 of them only...ARGH
13 more to go...

The Edge of Reason (NOT!)

Just after a chat with Gav about this blog location, that the only thing it doesn't have as compared to wordpress or lah.cc is that it doesnt have a Comments RSS feed.
Then lo and behold, I found it...just needed to know where to look.
Now there truly is no reason for me to shift the location of this blog.


A Truly Amazing Race

I never totally accepted myself for being too big a softie usually but this morning it was kinda evident. Especially after tearing up when I finished watching latest Amazing Race Asia episode and Team Singapore was still in the race cos another team breached a rule and was set back an hour. Just watching the emotion on the screen was enough to make me tear up.
I mean...while most guys would be like "Eh. Watever." I was here tearing up like a girl. Perhaps I am a girl trapped in a guy's body.
I am not ashamed or anything...just very interesting to note.


I am surprised how refreshed I am this morning, especially since the late night I had yesterday becos Joel got himself a Nintendo Wii and we were having a ball of a time testing the console out. It was cool!!! I am sooooo tempted to get myself one already la! :P

But before that, we had a great time at a BBQ organised by Sherry for her friend Christine (I hope I got her name correct :P). And cos I said that I would:

"The Japanese killed my people"

Inside joke...dont bother reading into it...LOL


It was apparent now that unless I say something to somebody, its probably impossible for anyone to know how I am feeling at any particular moment. I know this sounds very DUH but dont you ever wish people just know how you are feeling and would say the right words to you?
Stupid thought I guess.

To sum it up, I kinda identified the source of my depressive state after watching something similar on tele (who says TV rots your mind).
Not going to write it out here (kinda too mushy and stupid) but it didnt make things better. All this time I thought that if I could find the real source of the problem, I can just solve it and perhaps begin to get better. But what if it is something you cant do anything about? What if it is beyond your abilities and you know that it can never be solved.

While chatting with Nadia last night, she brought up something that is similar to my problem. Very similar actually.


Why give somebody a taste of true happiness and then take it away?

Why so indeed?



I have always know MS to be bastards at best when it comes to the license agreements for the use their Operating System but this is ridiculous.

Finally On my Laptop

Finally got it up and running.
Even got the wireless in the living room working.
Now all that's left is to test the connection from the bedrooms.
But till then...YAY!!!

The Christmas Condition

Less than 3 weeks to Christmas, less than 3 weeks before I return home, less than 3 weeks before my holiday starts.
All things I SHOULD be excited about.
I mean...
I get to see my family which I havent seen in almost a year.
I get to spend time with old friends whom I havent even had a chance to have a proper chat with in almost a year.
I get to meet people I have met and chatted with over the past couple of months and have never met before.
I get to return home and see the changes time has brought along with the trip.
I get to do some shopping and actually get bargains (ok...not THAT big a deal on this one)

So why am I not psyched about it???


Even getting my new laptop yesterday wasnt that big a deal. I opened up the package, played with the toy a bit, then left it in a corner while I slept the rest of the day away. WTF is wrong with me? The me I know would be psyched about all these things and be busy packing and planning my 2 weeks back home. He'll also be installing all the software on the laptop and customising it to be the best machine on the block.
So what is wrong?
I wish I know.

I really do.


This is so different from the person I used to know in myself.
That person was the one who directed a Christmas Play back in JC that preached Hope and Optimism.
That person believed that anything is possible, that the possibilities in this world are limitless.
That person loved everyone around him. Nobody was not worth his time and care.
That person smiled everyday. Everything around him amused and cheered him up.
That person never truely felt alone.
Where is he now?


Lord in Heaven
There is no season in the year
that brings hope of renewal and rebirth more than Christmas
I pray for a new start
For myself this year
Let the person who was - be here again
Let him bring smiles to other with his own
And let him be a beacon of light to all around him
Make him an instrument of yours
Allow him to feel Love again
To do your work
To let his Heart & Soul live again
