my new favourite song that i have to listen to every night before i sleep :) it pretty much soothes my soul. HAHA. it reminds me not to worry about all the little things and to leave bad memories behind and not to cling on to things that are not worth clinging on to, and yes, everything will be fine in the end :) ok that was a long sentence lol.

Jason Mraz ft. James Morrison's Details in the Fabric

Calm down
Deep breaths
And get yourself dressed instead
Of running around
And pulling all your threads and
Breaking yourself up

If it's a broken part, replace it
But, if it's a broken arm then brace it
If it's a broken heart then face it

And hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way
Hold your own
Know your own name
And go your own way

And everything will be fine

Hang on
Help is on the way
Stay strong
I'm doing everything

Hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way
Hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way

And everything, everything will be fine

Are the details in the fabric
Are the things that make you panic
Are your thoughts results of static cling?

Are the things that make you blow
Hell, no reason, go on and scream
If you're shocked it's just the fault
Of faulty manufacturing.

Everything will be fine
Everything in no time at all

Hold your own
Know your name
Go your own way

Are the details in the fabric (Hold your own)
Are the things that make you panic (Know your name)
Are your thoughts results of static cling? (Go your own way)

Are the details in the fabric (Hold your own)
Are the things that make you panic (Know your name)
Is it Mother Nature's sewing machine? (Go your own way)

Are the things that make you blow (Hold your own)
Hell no reason go on and scream (Know your name)
If you’re shocked it's just the fault (Go your own way)
Of faulty manufacturing

Everything will be fine
Everything in no time at all
Hearts will hold

Jason Mraz is a genius. tell me again why aren't i going to his concert? :'((

i'm not gonna start off my entry with "happy cny!!" cos it isn't a very happy one for me :S am sickkkkk. like totally. i'm coughing and wheezing like no one's business, and plus i just recovered from fever that was on-off starting from CNY eve. and to top it all off, some idiot added ethanol into the tray meant for water in our lab's incubator resulting in ALL our cells dying. like every single frickin cell in every single frickin flask in the incubator is dead. gone. zilch. and i'm the hardest hit of all in my lab cos my project's totally dependent on my cells (other peeps have animal work and stuff), so... what a great start to the new year.

who in the right mind will put ethanol into the water??? walaoehhhhh. luckily i still have samples that i froze for Western Blot! zzz. or else i won't have any experiments to do. and i have to grow my cells all over again. i'm frickin irritated, as you can prolly tell.

and i'm coughing like an old hag as i type this.

MAYBE cos of all these bad luck, my luck will turn and i'll win big bucks during ban lak over the coming weekend. HA.

anws i've came up with my top 5 favourite CNY goodies:

5. bakkwa
4. kueh bulu
3. kueh bangkit
2. keropok (prawn)
1. keropok (the bitter kind)

i'm drooling all over the laptop amidst all the coughing as i type this.

ok i should hibernate so i can get well enough for a bbq on Friday (i highly doubt i'll be well by then, but a girl can hope can't she) and a girls' day out in on Saturday :)) OH! and ban lak with the family :D and i wanna go see the boys play LAN tomorrow :(( sigh. there's some ghost game i wanna see!

(i dunno if it's still on, but i secretly wish the bf will say that he's not going tmr and is gonna pei me at home instead. haha.)

to think i was sooo close to getting to hear this amazing guy LIVE :((


I'm Yours

"i know i close my eyes sometimes when i sing, it doesn't mean i'm shutting you guys out. it just means i'm going to some place in my imagination for a little while. as soon as we can get some technology to broadcast what that image is in my head, we will, don't worry. we're working on that." (haha)

and my fave Mraz song :))

(ya i know i posted this before but i'm still lovin' it. alot.)

oh well, shall patiently wait for him to come over to Singapore again in a few years time :( lol.


and randomly, here's a damn adorable video! must watch!

The Declaration of Independence states that 'All men are created equal'. No matter how hard you try, you can never erase those words.

It takes no compromising to give people their rights. It takes no money to respect the individual. It takes no survey to remove repressions.

If I turned around every time somebody called me a f*ggot, I'd be walking backward - and I don't want to walk backward.

I know that you cannot live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living.

George Michael's Praying for Time

/It's hard to love
There's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above
Say it's much too late
Well maybe we should all be
Praying for time
Do you think we have time
Do you think we have time
Please give us time.../

you know you've made it big time when you're able to make people cry while listening to you perform. haha.


and you know you're gonna make it big some day (if not already) when you make people get goosebumps while listening to you sing acapella :))

school is starting in 4 days. my last semester as an NUS undergrad. it's scary how time flies, and it's pretty scary when you go out with a bunch of people and 3 quarts of the group is already working.

and i'm still nowhere near finding out what i want to do after i graduate. i really ought to start sourcing overseas unis, but something keeps telling me not to and to just focus on what's right infront of me now (read: FYP and last semester) and just see where life takes me. like i don't have enough worries already.

lab meeting was a damn scary affair. the presentation itself was fine, it was the Q&A after that which was totally nerve-wrecking. it's a good thing to have lab meetings actually, cos it's really a good prep for the real thing in April (or is it end of March?? OMG). and i'm really thankful for helpful seniors :) anw Bian has never had an Honours student who had less than a B+ for his/her FYP :( stress lor!! i don't want to be the first :(( summore i'm not exactly under him! zzz.

but all things aside, the inertia to start my thesis proper (lit review omggg siannnn) is the HUGEST i've ever encountered in the 22 years of my life.

so many nice movies coming up, so little time!

this seems like a pretty depressing post! lol. i've already told myself that this is the last week of my rather non-existent holidays so i better enjoy it to the max. and i did, so far :) amidst western blots and all. haha. and i'm so gonna enjoy fri sat and sun toooo!! although sunday is spring cleaning day as announced by my mum lol!

modules for the final semester:
LSM4221 Drug discovery and clinical trials
LSM4224 Free radicals and antioxidant biology

min bid was 2000 points for free rad! craziness!!

i'm kinda hooked on Okto :) do check out the 10pm slots especially. interesting documentaries! and i miss Heroes :(( february can't come fast enough! (but then again, i don't want feb to come so soon cos it means thesis submission and poster presentation's looming ahead :S)

and Gerrard :(( old news already, but i haven't blogged about it so i just have to! he's still my biggest hero no matter what :)) woooooot. really hope he'll be clear of all charges! but hard to say :( boooo.

anws ManU vs Chelsea on sunday! woooot. they better draw! i don't want Chelsea to win cos they're vying for top of the table with Liverpool, but at the same time i don't want ManU to win JUST BECAUSE. hahaha. so they better draw. hehh.

ok sleep time :) early day tomorrow! i have loads of hamster videos to share but i'm lazy to upload! another day another day :))

happy new year everyone!

here's wishing that 2009 will be a better year for all of us :)

it'll be a pretty significant year when i look back 10 years down the road, cos 2009 will be a year of uncertainty, decisions to be made, dreams (or not) to be fulfilled, and the very beginning of the future that is to come.

come what may, i hope it'll be a great year ahead.


livin' life
