here's a tribute to the grey furball we've grown to love for the past two and a half years.

will miss you so so very much :(

+Wipe the dust from your sweet smile, and breathe in life+

what a happening week!! so many happening things erm, happening in a span of four days is kinda incredible :) haha!

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL :)))))) gringringringringrin!! no need to guess which team i was supporting already :) ha! i stayed up to watch the match only to stupidly sleep at half-time cos Liverpool was 3-0 down and i kinda gave up already, but who could've guessed that they came back with full force to win the match!! haha. thank goodness i recorded the repeat on espn so now i can happily rewind and replay the magnificent goals, the exciting penalty shoot-out, and the triumphant smile on Gerrard's face when he lifted the Cup (ohmygoodness the one defining moment in history haha) again and again and again :D hah.

american idol finals!! though Mr Harold Bice (haha!) didn't win, it was a fantastic finale :) it was pretty touching when Carrie took to the stage to sing Inside Your Heaven amidst her tears of joy! and my all-time favourite JPL was among the audience!!! he's still as cute as ever. hahaha. and the corny video about Simon's apparent Dark Secret was really hilarious! haha the ami crew took a dig at the recent Corney(?) Clark-Paula Abdul tell-all show, which i thought was pretty smart of them. haha.

and oh yes, i'm harbouring quite a crush on the Gerrard look-alike in my office :) he just has to walk pass my table and that's sufficient to make me happy the whole day. heh!

i just realised sth!! at this very moment on Friday next week, i'll be out celebrating my last day of work!! hee so exciting man :) though i'd probably miss those lovable peeps at work and my Gerrard look-alike of course. ha.

tomorrow's gonna be shopping shopping shopping :) can't wait!

Lucie Silvas' Breathe In (didn't realise what a meaningful song this was, till i read the lyrics!)

I feel like I'm dragging you down a one way street
I don't know which way's up
All I ask of you is to stay on your feet
That should be enough
If we stand around it could pass us by
We could give up now, and never even try

To breathe in life and breathe out
Like tomorrow is today
Breathe in life and breathe out
It's not so long to wait
Breathe in life and breathe out
Wipe the dust from your sweet smile
And breathe in life

I just want something real I can hold onto
I believe its near
Life's too short to know the truth
Maybe it's already here
We could throw ourselves into the fire
We could give up now and never even try

To breathe in life and breathe out
Like tommorrow is today
Breathe in life and breathe out
It's not so long to wait
Breathe in life and breathe out
Wipe the dust from your sweet smile
And breathe in life

We're chasing something we've dreamed of
is not always out of reach
It's never far away from us
'cause I believe that

To breathe in life and breathe out
Like tomorrow is today
Breathe in life and breathe out
It's not so long to wait
Breathe in life and breathe out
Wipe the dust from your sweet smile
And breathe in life
Breathe in life and breathe out
Ooh, ooh, no, yeah, yeah yeah
Breathe in life and breathe out
And it's not so long to wait
Breathe in life and breathe out
Wipe the dust from your sweet smile
An breathe in life
Ooh, ohh, no, oh, ooh ohh
And breathe in life
Ooh, oh
And breathe in life...

When you're only 5 yrs old, I said 'I Love You'. You asked me: "What is it?"
When you're 15 yrs old, I said 'I Love You'. You blushed, you looked down and smile.
When you're 20 yrs old, I said 'I Love You'. You put your head on my shoulder and hold my hand, afraid that i might disappear.
When you're 25 yrs old, I said 'I Love You'. You prepare breakfast and serve it in front of me, and kiss my forehead and said "You better be quick, it's gonna be late."
When you're 30 yrs old, I said 'I Love You'. You said: "If you really love me, please come back early after work."
When you're 40 yrs old, I said 'I Love You'. You are cleaning the dining table and you said: "OK dear, but it's time for you to help our child with his/her revision".
When you're 50 yrs old, I said 'I Love You'. You're knitting and you laugh at me.
When you're 60 yrs old, I said 'I Love You'. You smile at me.
When you're 70 yrs old, I said 'I Love You'. We sit on the rocking chair with our fingers crossed.

awwww! :)

+Star Wars Ep III: Revenge of the Sith+





:) corny dialogue aside, i was totally overwhelmed by the story, the lightsabre duels, the cast, the special effects, and Yoda :D haha! although i felt that Anakin's transformation to the evil Darth Vader was kinda abrupt, it was so saddening to see a good guy succumbing to the dark side that there were tears in my eyes by the time Obi-wan cried "You were the Chosen One!" to Anakin.. ha. yikes i'm such a Star Wars geek! hah.

that aside, Howie Day's Stop all the World Now is not on sale in any cd shops anymore!! sad.. :( i'm so gonna order it. ha! it better be worth it :)

+No one really knows what they're searchin for, this world is cryin for so much more+

it's the start of a wondrous long weekend!!! wheeee! it's gonna be meeting up with peeps i love, STAR WARS :), shopping, and the long-overdue jog at ecp (though i'm sure it'll be pigging out like crazy after that. again. HA!). i spent the whole day today exclaiming "IT'S FRIDAY!!!" to everyone who walked by my table. haha! to those people i know la duh. can you imagine if my Gerrard-lookalike walked by and i shout "IT'S FRIDAY!!" in his face? hahaha that'll be hilarious man. heh.

work's kinda alright after all :) haha. kinda got to know my new colleagues better, but i find myself making excuses to go down to the 9th floor all the time just simply so that i can talk to the people there. ha. today was the last day for two of the temp guys in my new dept. it's both yay and sigh for me. ha! more to the Yay side la. heh. anws my new supervisor's really nice, actually. today right smack in the middle of the afternoon she was like "annabel! i need you to accompany me!" then i was like "oh okie.." then when we went into the lift i was about to press 9th floor (cos i thought she wanted me to get files or whatever from the 9th floor with her), instead she pressed 1st floor, and guess what she said. "I'M HUNGRY!" piang eh. haha super funny. so in the end we went down to buy Polar chicken pies and peach tarts up and the whole dept ended up eating and slacking until it was time to go home. ha.

suddenly thought of something. you know the cliche sentence "When you really love someone, you'd want him/her to be happy even though that means you can't have him/her"? i think it's bullshit. hahaha. cmon la, you'd really be happy to see him/her with someone else?

ooooh yes i'm supporting Bo Bice for the ami finale!! GO BO!! :D

Good Charlotte's We Believe (read the lyrics!)

There's a woman crying out tonight
Her world has changed
She asks God why
Her only son has died
And now her daughter cries
She can't sleep at night

Downtown another day for all the suits and ties
Another war to fight
There's no regard for life
How do they sleep at night
How can we make things right
Just wanna make this right

We believe(x6)
In this love

We are all the same
Human in all our ways and all our pain
(So let it be)
There's a love that could fall down like rain
(Let us see)
Let forgiveness wash away the pain
(What we need)
And no one really knows what they are searching for
(We believe)
This world is crying for so much more

We believe(x6)
In this love

We believe(x5)
In this love

So this world is too much for you to take
Just lay it down and follow me
I'll be everything you need
In every way

We believe(x6)
In this love

+I'd like to have the time i lost and give it back to you+

sigh i was feeling really bad last night.. see, my brother called me while i was out with the colleagues to kindly remind me to get home early cos no one'll be fetching me home from Kembangan mrt and i've to walk the long dark stretch of road home by myself, and guess what, i snapped at him. BLAH. ok maybe not snap, but i said sth like "ya la i know la not as if i never walk back home at night before yadda yadda", if you know what i mean. really don't know what the heck got into me. there he was being nice, and i just had to be that stupid i-don't-give-a-damn shitty little sister i was. sian.

work is slowly taking its toll on me.. my new dept is okkaaayyy, not fantastically nice as i thought it'd be. yes the people there're young and fun-loving, but they aren't as great as those i've made friends with when i was at the 9th floor. sigh. maybe i haven't really got to know my new dept well yet, but still. sigh. and there's these four temp guys working with me, ya they're sweet and all, but we super don't click la. and i still have to bear with this rather annoying guy (ohm, your fave attitude problem RJ guy. EURGH!!) who's really getting on my nerves day by day. and what's more, i'm now on the 11th floor, which means i'm unable to see and talk to my favourite colleagues as often as i want to. double sigh.

what keeps me going is the looking forward to lunch everyday (and thinking of new places to eat, haha) and my two eye-candies!!
the first eye-candy is this Malay policeman standing outside the door to my office. his job is super sian cos he just has to stand there and "guard" the counter where our customers submit their applications and money and all that. and all the time he's just doing nothing/talking to people walking by/chatting on his hp. he's super-duper incredibly cute la (note to kl: uniformed hotties! your fave! heh) and he never fails to smile to me whenever i walk pass him -faints!!- which is a lot of times cos i have to pass him to go to the toilet and you know, i've got this bladder problem, you see. hah.
the second one is this Eurasian guy who looks like an older version of Steven Gerrard, but cuter. hee. whenever i stand up from my table, i can see his table and his sideview. haha! super-duper incredibly cute too, this one is :) heh. talking like Yoda, i am! which reminds me, five more days to Star Wars! wheee!

14 more working days to my last day at work...

Bless the Broken Road -sang this on ami 2 weeks ago, Carrie did :) nice nice!!

I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you
Every long lost dream lead me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

I think about the years I spent just passing through
I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You've been there you understand
It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true

Every long lost dream lead me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

pretty fun, talking like Yoda is! hmmmmm... yes, yesss. watch tv now, i will!

haha stop annoying everybody now, i shall :)

+"Between one person and another there is only light."+

ohmygiddygosh Kingdom of Heaven rocked my socks and shoes off! haha. everyone just has to watch it to see for themselves how good it is. it was definitely worth the frickin $9.50, i must say!! ohm and i were speechless after the show and both of us had these silly grins on our faces when we emerged from the cinema! haha damn funny. we just couldn't stop smiling after the show. ha.

"You are not what you were born, but what you have it in yourself to be."

all hail Sir Orlando Bloom the Knight in his first lead role :D he was rather impressive!

"Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright that God may love thee. Speak the truth even if it leads to your death. Safeguard the helpless. That is your oath... Rise a knight!" :)


oh yes anws i've finally decided go for Life Science at NUS :) it's like this huge weight off my chest, now that i've decided. hee.

+One final glance, One final step, One final dance+

what a week! :) apart from being able to sleep till noon everyday during my one week break from work, i managed to spend more time with the family; pig out despite having to chew with only the right side of my mouth; have wonderful get-togethers with friends i love :) ; read the Da Vinci Code illustrated edition; get to know a certain boy better; and in addition to all that, find out that a certain long-time crush (heh) still cared after all :)

a pretty exciting week, i must say! haha.

oh yes and i saw this fiery thing in the sky last night! it was a little bigger than a star, and it was moving at random! as in not in straight lines like a shooting star or sth. it was like this teenyweeny ball of fire, which eventually disappeared into the dark sky. we suspected it to be one of those lanterns people light and let go to make a wish (you know those kong3 ming2 deng1 or whatever deng1 la haha). but still, maybe it's a UFO! or maybe a shooting star that went haywire! or maybe it was a comet about to strike earth! haha kinda exciting huh.

and now it's back to work. gonna change depts on thursday, so it was my last day in Logistics today (cos i'm going to the dentist to remove the fricking stitches tmr). kinda sad.. sigh.

i hate the smell of the dental clinic, the stupid chair i have to climb on, the way the dentist pokes his scary-looking equipment in my poor mouth, and how the nurse places the tube used to suck the saliva (and blood) anywhere she likes in my mouth. urgh.

in short, i simply HATE going to the dentist.. :S

anws jamie yeo and carrie chong just said on p10 that they're supporting Liverpool for the Champion's League semi-final tonight. HUMPH! Chelsea all the way!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Luther Vandross' Dance With my Father (so sweet and sad..)

Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then
Spin me around 'til I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure I was loved
If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end

How I'd love, love, love
To dance with my father again
When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way, I would run from her to him
He'd make me laugh just to comfort me
Then finally make me do just what my mama said
Later that night when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me
If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end

'Cause I'd love, love, love
To dance with my father again
Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
And I'd hear how my mother cried for him
I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me
I know I'm praying for much too much
But could you send back the only man she loved
I know you don't do it usually
But dear Lord she's dying
To dance with my father again
Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream

+But without you all i'm going to be is incomplete+

omg haha i think i'm the happiest girl in the world right now :D gringringringringringrin!

hahaha how silly :)

oh happy labour day everyone!!

bsb's Incomplete

Empty spaces fill me up with holes
Distant faces with no place left to go
Without you within me I can't find no rest
Where I'm going is anybody's guess

I've tried to go on like I never knew you
I'm awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
But without you all I'm going to be is incomplete

Voices tell me I should carry on
But I am swimming in an ocean all alone
Baby, my baby
It's written on your face
You still wonder if we made a big mistake

I've tried to go on like I never knew you
I'm awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
But without you all I'm going to be is incomplete

I don't mean to drag it on, but I can't seem to let you go
I don't wanna make you face this world alone
I wanna let you go (alone)

I've tried to go on like I never knew you
I'm awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
But without you all I'm going to be is incomplete


not exactly what i'm feeling now, but still, it's a nice song! haha.. ok i'm so not making sense here. but oh well, it doesn't really matter. ha..
