alrighty. recital exam is done for this sem. was abit disappointing. but o well. theres only me and myself to blame. next time round, im not gonna go up there feeling so damn unprepared. for now, lets chiong our ports tog man. i cant wait for 3rd oct. its gonna be freedom for a mth! hoho. im excited. (:
was tenking abt sth while walking home yest. about how sometimes i end up getting hurt cos i allow myself to fall in way too deep in everything i do. a friend once told me not to care too much for stuff. thats the only way u could possibly protect urself. so i did that. and it kinda worked. but then again, how does one carrying on living like this?
living is all about giving all of your best into everything you do, isnt it. its about laughing too much. loving every moment too hard. doing what you like and being ard the people u likee. and even if you try to fly and end up falling down, its about how u get up again. and if you fall in too deep, i say, enjoy that moment. and if you get terribly hurt its alright too. cherish the fact that there're ppl around to give u a hug and make things better for you. i'd rather be someone who has the ability to laugh to love to cry to get angry and to get hurt. thats better than being someone whos does not feel at all. without any scrap of real emotion. u mite just end up being a self centered being whose life is just empty and void. don live in moderation ppl. live happeningly. live dangerously. and its all about embracing the weird and unique in eveyrone. be yourself! (:
illusions. sometimes, you hope that you can just remain in that web of illusion that perhaps was spun by yourself. cos in that web, thats where you can continue cheating yourself happily. living your fantasy. and be sort of happy. in a way. but underneath all that, theres an underlying current of fateful knowledge that one day you gotta wake up from all these and face the sad reality. and you know, you should pull urself out before you fall in too deep. before you can save yourself. cos youre the only one who can do that. but u know, i don even know whether its an illusion. and o yes, i so want it not to be. can it not be one?
candace left last night. as in mon. gosh. and i just realized yest that the last time all the bears were able to meet up together and spend some quality time was over, on htat thurs we had dinner. its gonna be weird not having her ard anymore. im already missing you babe. pls do take great care. and do fly back soon. cos i wanna talk to you again. and do nonsense. but yes, i want you to become a great lawyer. (: go go go girl. jiayou! i have faith in you and so you have lots in urself too and do us proud! n enjoy lots over dere. i love ya!
and so it happens again, here i am blogging at 3 plus am in the morning. how perfect this kinda life it is.
and ever since this sem started its been just weird. ive never felt this weird before. i don feel productive at all anymore. even tho i do my research and stuff. in my piano and my work. for all these mths, ive just felt suspended in space. and lost. and the best part, semester is coming to an end. in a few more wks. its a hooray cos holis will be here. but then again, i wonder to myself. just what the blardy hell have i been doing man. and yet when i really tenk abt it, its been a sem that ive done quite alot. actually, really quite alot. but just why, why don i feel any sense of accomplishment? ah mannn...how nonsense huh.
all i know now, i just wanna get some real sleep. that would be heavenly, yes.
was on the bus recently when this old hobbling woman got on. for heaven's sake. hello she had to take so long just to get on, and this still was not enough for any single soul sitting down to offer her a seat. was the walking stick she used invisible huh?? or did time fly by real fast for you guys when she slowly climbed her way up the 3 steps of the bus! and the best part? one woman could help stop her from falling face down when the bus stopped abruptly, and then continue sitting dere as if that was helpful enough alr for a day. charity for the day done. gosh lahh i couldnt believe it. i was so tempted to ask them to give up for her. knw what. i will do that the next time it happens. its so ridiculously ridiculous. GOSH.
doing work at night always makes me tenk of food especially more. for some reason. i cant help but blog abt food now. dammit. im like a perpetual pig. Gosh. nvm, just lemme satisfy my cravings by blogging. hey, thats quite safe huh. i wont grow fat by doing this!
i. the oh-so-heavenly xiao long baos at crystal jade filled with that gorgeous soup that spills out when u bite into the tender skin. coupled with the ginger, its perfecto. a perfect reason so not to diet. and their la mian. and my all time fave dessert, gao lu dou sha (however u say it in eng??) its oozing with red bean paste and banana and its covered with icing sugar and it just melts in your mouth. and ur heart melts along too.
ii. the super wonderful juicy har gao at victor's kitchen. the skin is like, fwahhh. and their carrot cake? its simply the most unique carrot cake in sg man. pls do eat it. u'll nv regret.
iii. the egg yolk custard bun there. u know, i wont mind eating that for breakfast daily. i'll die happy. and aiya, everything here is nice. including the uncle. hes my bestest smiliest friend in sunshine. (: makes my day everyday.
iv. the 3 amigos baked pasta at nydc. hoho. so outta blue huh. but yes i love it. but pls, just go the one at wheelock. cos the one at heerens, i cant stand them. they give diluted sauces!!! gosh. and they tell you its supp to be like that. wth. do we look like we come from the land of dilutes! oh and the mudpies dere and at bigO. :)
v. hmm. n yes, indulgz. my grown-in-the-garden portobello mushrooms! and sinful tiramisu. and crispy pasta. gosh so creative lahh! mindboggling food! yes. i have cravings for mushrooms galore. meaning, i like mushroom pot too. whoopeeods.
vi. i love the cheesecakes at coffee bean. actually, all the cakes dere. I LOVE CAKES! hahaha. (: esp the ones from here. i just love it love it to the ultra max. enuff said.
vii. and i adore naan. and prata. and all the many thousand indian curries and chappati and etc. but gone are the days that i really enjoy mine anymore. thanks to that cheapo extortion place next to nafa. dannngs. i rmb i used to fly to canteen with jeanette, just for prata. nowadays i don crave it anymore. OH MAn. thats sad rite!
ix. the olive sandwich thingie at fig and olive! omg. this is like hugest biggest most generous serving of sandwich i ever got at a restaurant kinda place. and its warm. and i love olives. yumm. and its got LotsA sauce! hoorays. and i must inform you abt subway too. it rocks. and do attempt getting ALL THE SAUCES. courtesy of smint k. that is, if those blur ppl dere do follow your instructions and not attempt to tell you its gonna taste yucky. the customer is always right u noe
x. lastly. what else. my darling mum's cooking. altho we eat vegetarian at home. its always so amazingly delicious. kudos to her. so inventive and happening man. and its healthy! hehe. so heres to our home made 'many treasure rice' my all time fave, pineapple rice, potato cheese patties, pizzas, her thousands of soups, porridges, pastas, and whatevers. made with love. (:
aiyo. okay. thats all i wanna say today. so terrifying rite. pls enjoy eating. pls do live to eat. u find that it makes everything so much more fun. and of course, try to eat healthy! (: hehhee.
did i mention, i found t.h.e bag. after months of searching! this elusive bag finally materialized that glorious day! and oooh. im quite satisfied now. its just so beautiful. perfect in every way other than its heavy straps. and every time i use it, i cant believe i actually found it.
