You take me as I am
Into your new scarred hands
and when I run so far away
you always call me back again
into your open arms
not matter what ive done
amazing grace has found me here
because of what you've done, for me

Contact Lenses.
Monday, January 30, 2006

Should I get contact lenses or not? I'm deliberating on this issue now and I'm really unsure.

Barlow Girl - Never Alone
Sunday, January 29, 2006

I said I was going to post one song for Brooke Fraser but then I came across this song from my WOW albums. It's a beautiful song, and the lyrics speak volumes if you know what I mean.

Barlow Girl - Never Alone

I waited for you today
But you didn't show
No no no
I needed You today
So where did You go?
You told me to call
Said You'd be there
And though I haven't seen You
Are You still there?

I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel You by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I"m never alone

And though I cannot see You
And I can't explain why
Such a deep, deep reassurance
You've placed in my life

We cannot separate
'Cause You're part of me
And though You're invisible
I'll trust the unseen

The Juliana Theory
Friday, January 27, 2006

The Juliana Theory is nice. Thanks to Mervin for playing on his iBook. hehee. Speaking of iBooks, I read the review for MacBookPro, apparently it's not as good as the PowerBooks. I want a PowerBook, a U2 iPod and a new handphone. Hur.

I'm supposed to get started on my working drawings, but Sheena ain't here yet. And class is at 3pm. I think Rosli is going to murder me. Yikes. I haven't done his work for like ages and I skipped his Exhibition Design class on Tuesday. I don't want to attend Construction today but then if I miss today's class, I'm debarred.

Oh, Bowling for Soup is nice as well. Mervin, can I take your iBook home? Please? hehee. There's a song by Brooke Fraser that I think is nice, I'll post the lyrics when I'm home.

I'm not SIP-less anymore. Thank God. And the company's in my hometown. Okay, hometown is quite redundant a word, Singapore's a little too small. It's back to Katong, place where I grew up. Hee. Hopefully, I won't screw up or anything during the attachment.

Is It Worth It?
Saturday, January 21, 2006

Is it really worth it to be nice to people who in the end don't care about you? Maybe they do just that they don't show it, is that what you are trying to say? I have my doubts and I should listen more to the people around me who care. And start listening to my gut feeling.

I will not put my faith in people that don't matter, in the end, they don't really care about you, just what they can get from you.

I will instead put my faith in the One that holds my hands and leads me on the right path.

There's only one word to be used in situations like this. Or rather to describe the person. Pardon my lack of better vocabulary. Pathetic really. Rubbish as well. Work is not done, research isn't all about copying and pasting one chunk of notes you got from the web. Where's your understanding? Oh pardon me, I realise you don't understand a single thing. Or rather, you don't try. It's people like you who give students from your country a bad name. Talking about us, Singaporeans not trying to fit you in? More or less you stick to your ownselves and not try to speak English unless you have no choice.

Pathetic really.

Post note: Please try and understand where I'm coming from. With a group member like that, people are expected to do twice the amount of work and they get the same grade. I shall not rant on more lest I get into trouble with the law. It's seriously rubbish that you get persecuted because you air your feelings. What is this world coming to?

I never enjoyed running. It was a chore in secondary school, with weekly rounds of 2.4km around the school. Never could run in time, that's why I detested it. Well perhaps I was wrong about running. Running in a group is good, it gives you motivation to continue running even when you're really tired because you have your mates there encouraging you on. Hopefully, and I pray that I don't need to run for design.

I need a bath. Badly.

Love Languages.
Wednesday, January 04, 2006

Apparently I was wrong. It's not affirmation first, but Quality Time and Gifts, secondary being Words of Affirmation.

Hmm, doesn't feel right, but somehow, when I think back, it is right. Now I know.

When You Get Hurt, Don't Nurse It, Don't Curse It, Don't Rehearse It. Release It And Let God Disperse It.


He who covers over an offense promotes love, but whoever repeats the matter seperates close friends. [Proverbs 17:9]

Double Amen! I need to learn that.

I seem to have an affinity with Nike. I went out with my folks and my brother today. Dad and Elisha wanted to do some shopping so we headed down to Suntec. Went into Nike to check out their shirts. And I realised that I can fit into the Boys sizes. Ha! Dad bought me one light blue boys shirt with a picture of a sneaker on it. And Elisha had to buy an identical one. He wants me to wear it the same time he wears it. Sheesh. Then onto RSH to see somemore. Managed to find the Nike Golf Polo shirt I wanted, they had it in the Nike shop, but no more sizes. And then bought another golf shirt by Wilson Staff. Just when we paid up (Dad actually, he bought 4 Nike Golf Polos!), Mum saw this green Nike Polo, in which we ended up buying. Thank God there wasn't any nice Nike shoes (fine, there was, but no more size) and I ended up buying Vans instead. Thanks Dad, know it's quite a bit you've spent on me the past year with bowling and all, but I appreciate it.

Words of Affirmation and secondary language is Gifts. Should be right, if it isn't I'll adjust it accordingly later. Go try and figure. Hee.
