the new Songs of the Sea was great :) really worth the 6 buckeroos. very very pretty :) although it rained damn heavily while we were waiting for the show to start, which dampened our spirits quite a bit. and hmmm why do they always have to have cheesy plots about some guy saving some beautiful creature from the sea, in addition to all those mythical animals like Kiki the monkey and Oscar the whatever-fish? yeah they're cute, but i'd rather watch a beautiful musical fountain (ala Bellagio) that lasts 30 minutes without any storyline whatsoever. haha.
haha i love acting touristy :D i'm gonna miss whole days spent in each other's company like this when school starts :(
urghhh i hate bidding!!! if i manage to get all my modules i'm gonna have a 4-day week and only one 8am day! woot my fingers are crossed. no i REFUSE to add in labs yet into my beautiful (for now) timetable. hurhur.
and as promised, i hereby present 'A
Day Night in the Life of Three Mad People'.
(click images for larger view.)
Three people are talking online about things sane people normally talk about, until they start becoming violent.
sabrina and ts start getting hysterical, while (>.<) watches in amazement and wonders about the strange beings that are women. they continue their childish banter (in need of better things to do)...
and then sabrina has an idea! (WOW!) see who draws the nicest ostrich!
the self-proclaimed winner is (but of course!) ts.
ts finally snaps out of it and realises the insanity of the whole situation. she decides to go to sleep. (>.<) is pissed off with the madness of it all and exits the conversation, leaving sabrina laughing like a maniac the whole night through.
(ok i made the last part up.)

"You came here because you needed to. You needed to hear the truth before you could save the world."
"Will I save the world?"
"You've had the power all along, Peter. You just needed to learn how to use it."
"Because there has to be one that's good. There always has. And your heart has the ability to love unconditionally...
Like I told you, in the end all that really matters... is love."
- conversation between Charles Deveaux and Peter Petrelli. Heroes, Chapter 23.
all that 'love-will-overcome-anything-bad' cliché stuff, but i still love it :) hee.
watch this vid. embedding's disabled so i can't paste it here. (Avril Lavigne's When You're Gone) beautiful song! i cry everytime i watch the video :( this is very bad.

it's about two weeks to start of school. why am i so dreading it i wonder. grrr module planning is SUCH a chore.
and i cut my hair. it's not really short short but it's damn short to me. lol. ok i'm not typing coherently. i hope my hair grows fast.
ooh and i realise i haven't talked about Harry Potter 7 yet. whee! i think it's the best of all the 7 books. one part was pretty touching (no i'm not talking about *****'s d**** haha, but the part where ***** walks into the ff to meet his/her impending blahblah). ok i can't be more vague than this so i shall not attempt anymore. and except the one part (yes that part) which i thought was horribly cheesy, the whole book was one helluva ride :)) loved it!
and now there's nothing to look forward to in this whole potter phenomenon except the 2 remaining movies. sighhh. and i hear they are opening a Harry Potter theme park in Orlando if i'm not wrong, which i think is really mad, but i'll go if i have the chance all the same :p hehheh.
do The Impossible Quiz! as recommended by sab (whom i think has done till question 100 or more by now), who says you need a screwed-up mind to do it. wahaha. the bf and i did until question 26 and gave up. lol!
hungry! am waiting for my Ikea chicken wings specially delivered! :D hehehe.
//edit: bb and i did till question 60-sth of the quiz! wahaha. and we're not giving up. lol. i think the rahhh-lamer-and-cold-jokes-teller in him has finally been put to good use. HAHA. please don't kill me!! :p

st nicks. 11 years, more than half of my life spent there. still as grand, as beautiful, as warm as it has always been. i practically grew up wearing the blue pinafore. memories, bittersweet. loose belts, unbuttoned collars. all the silly things we used to do. trainings, and running away from them. all that immaturity. just how much we've grown since then.
once an IJ girl, always an IJ girl. and proud of it :)
tell me, how do i get back the things i love? how do i get back the things that i regret not keeping close to heart?
how do i get back what's lost?

that's how life is huh. all of us yearning and trying our best to reach out for our own idea of 'Perfect'. what's the whole deal anw? there's something about how society defines our perceptions of 'Perfect'.. i think we've been brainwashed about the ideas of perfection from the day we were born. oh, i must work hard to get that perfect job. oh gosh i hafta lose weight to get that perfect body. ooh i've to marry that man cos he has a bright and perfect future. all that pressure to be perfect. we're all too caught up with our endless pursuit of perfection that we don't see the beauty of the things that are right in front of you, regardless of how imperfect they are. no one is truly perfect.. quite some time ago, someone whom i felt was the epitome of perfection (perfect life, perfect love, perfect...everything; at least in my eyes) told me about the problems she's facing in life and her bouts of depression, all for the sake of keeping up in this whole chase for what's perfect. no matter how much we dislike the thought of conforming to what society deems as perfect, we can't help but do exactly that, because it's simply difficult not to. at least that's how i feel. sucks la. one fine day we should all embrace our imperfections and stop pursuing things far beyond our reach and just live. happily ever after. see, what a perfect world it'll be :p
the pic's from sgsecrets btw!
perfection/imperfection aside, Potter-mania is here! wooooot. i can't wait! watched the making of the movie last week and it was damn cool. they actually have this i-forgot-how-many-but-it's-alot-of-acres of land devoted solely to the Harry Potter movies. it's called the Leavesden(?) Studios and it's in the outskirts of London. the Great Hall, the Gryffindor common room, the Ministry of Magic, the Weasleys' Burrow etc etc... all permanent structures that will not be torn down after all the movies are made. so i foresee that they'll probably open them for mad fanatic tourists (like me) to see in the future :D wahaha. and i love Emma Watson cos she's so pretty i can't stand it. and i'm waiting (with bated breath, no less) for 3 working days after 21st July cos HP and the Deathly Hallows will be arriving at my doorstep. yayness! and i swear i'll KILL if anyone reveals anything about the book before i finish reading it!! ok la maybe not, but i begggg you, please don't!
and the bf will finally be internship-less starting next week. now that's Perfect :D
and i've said this 10000 times, but i love my girlfriends :))
favourite (sweet) song of the week! loves it! Plain White T's Hey There Delilah :)
|A thousand miles seems pretty far
But they've got planes and trains and cars
I'd walk to you if I had no other way
Our friends would all make fun of us
and we'll just laugh along because we know
That none of them have felt this way|

am currently living in extreme denial that school is actually starting. i don't even wanna think of anything school-related. somehow it's different from how i was feeling this time last year. a sense of dread and, as how shan always puts it, impending doom. wahaha. i guess it's the thought that more than half of my uni life is gone. in a flash. i don't know where all the time went. Year 3 seems so foreign it's scary!
John Mayer said,
High school is like a spork. It's a crappy spoon and a crappy fork, so in the end it's just plain useless.
on a lighter note, happiness is
pretty fire crackers in bloom,
and a box full of honey stars :))
oh btw, wear green during the weekend in support of LiveEarth! :)

went to the National Stadium's closing ceremony yesterday! :) my first time watching a live soccer match :)) the closest to EPL i can get so far (i still wanna go Anfield and watch Liverpool play you know :p), since the Australian team has a handful of EPL players! was damn excited :D the Singapore-Malaysia ex-internationals match before that was totally sleep-inducing though.
us before going into the stadium :) Mr. Optimus Prime, sab and i unknowingly came in Australian jersey colours, leaving mike as (supposedly) the only Singapore supporter HAHA.
random pictures under the blazing sun. it was frickin hottt.
the Australian team warming up!
sunset :) the ones taken during NDP last year were much nicer cos we were higher up!
the cauldron and the flags.
hehh. the bf dared me to post these pictures (with labels), so i post lor :p
the Singapore team after the match, some in oversized Australian jerseys. despite letting in 3 goals, i think Lionel Lewis is a damn good goalkeeper (in Asian soccer terms)!
and then it was the official closing ceremony with Brian and Mark Richmond relieving the stadium's past glories, a huge contingent of past and present sportsmen, Kit Chan singing some victory song, and a disappointing display of fireworks.
and so the Grand Old Lady's finally giving way to a new sportshub. memories of countless NDPs and inter-school games i attended there will always be remembered :))
and i think i'm starting to have a bit of sore throat. must be the damn heat!
