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

Mustafa Centre and My Chocolates.
Saturday, April 29, 2006

I'd like to make a trip down to Mustafa Centre once more. Especially the chocolate section. They've got Twix (which is my absolutest favourite chocolate in the world) and a 1.5kg tin can of Cadbury's Heroes or something like that, that I'm going to get. Soon enough. They even stock Lindt Excellence 70% and 85% cocoa bars that are a little bit hard to find nowadays at the local grocers.

It's like food heaven there. So many crisps I want to acquire like Kettle's Unsalted and Honey Dijon crisps, the local delicacy like Muruku (heh, Siyuan and me were just pigging out) and yes, let me divert from junk food, MUSHROOMS. Try this, sautee them with garlic and olive oil, and maybe a little dried chili and man, you get the most sweetest tasting mushrooms ever. Lao Da taught me how to cook Aglio Olio a long time back and I just didn't add the pasta, but you can do that if you want.

I'm wanting to go on a food festival, especially one that requires me to cook.

It Ain't For Myself.
Thursday, April 27, 2006

Many times I wish it was the end of something that you believe was wonderful. I wish that you could just let go of everything, the past the present and what is to be. But as normal, most of the time is easier said than done. I believe all of your friends just want you to be happy, with yourself and with life. You're not a failure. And never was. God made no mistakes when he made you.

All that the people on the sidelines do is just to advise you and pray that the decisions that you make will be the ones that enable you to trully be happy. However, whatever decisions that you do make in the end, we respect it and hope (with prayer again) that it'll be a good one. And come what may, you still have us for better or for worse.

Move forward, for life was never meant to be lived in the past. Live a life that's worth living. For the breath of life breathe into you was never (and has never been) a mistake.

Learning. You Never Do Stop.
Tuesday, April 25, 2006

I don't know what I was doing at that point of time. In regards to that issue, I say one thing and yet do another. I'm not afraid to admit it. For awhile I was super emo, and Michelle knew. Just that I didn't say the reason. But there's this bunch of mates that put a smile on my face and laughter into my system that invaribly makes me forget what I was dwelling on. Now that I'm a little rested and thinking straight, it was a silly thing to do. Which was to dwell. They made me laugh so hard, with 101 things to do with your microwave to Rainer building me a shire. Because I'm a hobbit. I always end up walking away from them with a smile on my face. And seriously, I don't think they know how much they've changed my life or my situation at that point of time. A good bunch and I love them.

Justin and Abel are being a little crazy. Techno Geeks. Went onto Alienware and started choosing what they wanted in their CPUs. In which, the price ended up being $14,000. And let me emphasize that it was in US$. They were mentioning that they'll only do that when they've got $20000 to blow. Highly doubt that will be anytime soon though.

CCA booth was closed a tad early today, started raining again and it was coming in so we closed. And now in the 3D animation lab, bidding my time away.

I sort of want to walk in the rain now. Don't know why, guess I'm a bit emo now. heh.

Thinking of what to say.
Tuesday, April 18, 2006

I'd like to have a button making machine. Buttons as in badges. The kind that design school is famous for having and giving out. heh. I managed to get one badge, Zippo.

For the second time in my life, someone has commented that I've got a motherly air about me. It's strange actually. Let me digress for a bit, my favourite word the past few days have been "strange".

Ok, I don't know what else to type. I've seem to have writer's block for the moment. Argh.

Too Much Time.
Sunday, April 16, 2006

I know I have too much time on my hands when I start "shopping" on the net. Looking at apparel that I saw in the stores yesterday at Marina Square. The sort of things I like are kind of not befitting a girl my age, in fact, it has no relevance to me whatsoever. Apart from that I like it, and I think it's nice. I reckon, I'm the only girl my age who prefers to wear golf apparel rather than clothes from TopShop, Zara, Mango and all those high end shops. The only problem is golf apparel is EXPENSIVE. Well, if you do have extra dough (no pun intended for those who know I bake) and don't know what to spend on, you could get the following from the Nike Golf shop at Marina Square for me.

1. Nike Womens Golf UV skort in Navy - $75
2. Nike Womens Golf Short Short - $75
3. Nike Womens Golf ClimaFit Hooded Jacket - I think it was over $100.

I guess I'll get them with my next paycheck. Heh. I hope my Birkies arrive soon. Daryl, they ain't fake.

All I Want.

It's strange how certain things turn out. Things have changed and honestly, for the first time I've accepted it. I still watch out for you, I don't know why but I do. Maybe it's one part of me that I can't let go, but then again I highly doubt so. I watch out for you on account of our friendship and all I can do is pray that in everything you do, you'll give it your best shot.

All I want for you is to be happy. Sometimes I get the feeling you're aren't. That's all I want for you. And I'll silently watch over you as long as I'm able to. As your friend.

Get Up.

Daryl, get your butt off your chair, and go with me to the book fair.

And I'm not a geek.

I'll buy you lunch? heh.

In You I've Found
Sunday, April 09, 2006

As I feel your presence once again
I drop to my knees in awe of you
Beads of tears stream down my face
For there are no words to say thank you

In You I've found love
That no mortal could give me
In You I've found peace
That this turbulent world could not offer
And in You, I've found salvation
By the blood of the lamb
