the childlike empress.



i love this movie so, so much. i should run out and buy the dvd soon.

rich has just informed me that... it's a boy!

yes, the new pubco chairperson, also known as my new grand junior, is male. wenxi, i wish you all the best. now i can look forward to my junior-treat-grand-senior dinner. :)

and i'm leaving indochine club street soon. finally, more personal time than i will ever need.

what do you know.

i've been preoccupied with my blissful, happy camper state of mind for too long. it just seems that even when the little things hit, they hit harder now.

or do they? today is just one day out of all days.

this will sound stupid and bimbotic, but i miss having a crush on someone. i miss that sudden rush of emotions, that undeniable high. i miss that feeling.

(i might delete this entry when i'm feeling slightly more sane, thank you.)

my silly old winnie the pooh.

Gotta get up, I gotta get goin'
I'm gonna see a friend of mine
He's round and he's fuzzy
I love him because
He's just Pooh Bear, Winnie the Pooh Bear

Lookin' for fun, chasin' some honey bees
Pooh Bear I know he's out there
Rumbly tumbly, climbin' a honey tree
Fun never ends for us, we're so adventurous
Least every now and again

And when we're alone and there's nobody home
It's nice to be able to count on a friend
Like Pooh Bear, Winnie the Pooh Bear
Wherever you go, oh won't you take me please
Pooh Bear, I gotta be there

It's me and it's you
My silly old Winnie the Pooh...


awwww! couldn't resist posting this though i haven't much to report today. it brings back fond memories of watching the cartoon as a child. the NUS med essay test went okay, i suppose. since forty-five minutes wasn't enough time to write a decent, well-structured essay, i just wrote whatever came to me. well well we'll see how it goes.

lonelily.

I gave me away
I could have knocked off the evening
But I was lonelily looking for someone to hold
In a way, I lost all I believed in
And I never found myself so low
And you let me down
You could've called if you'd needed
But you lonelily got yourself locked in instead
And you let me down
It's one thing being cheated
But you took him all the way through your bed


i don't like damien rice all that much. he sold himself out in the radio edit of cannonball, too poppish if you know what i mean. but the song above, lonelily, is worth a second (and third) listen. enjoy. :)

the remedy.

I saw fireworks from the freeway
And behind closed eyes I cannot make them go away
Cause you were born on the fourth of July, freedom ring
Now something on the surface it stings
That something on the surface
Well it kind of makes me nervous
Who says that you deserve this
And what kind of god would serve this?
We will cure this dirty old disease

If you've got the poison I've got the remedy


natalie brought cel, xuamy and i around the NUS medicine faculty today. (thanks nat!) we visited the anatomy museum to look at body parts of people who donated their bodies to science. it seems like there are alot of names to memorise in a very short time... at the end of our tour, we ended up in the med society room talking about our upcoming interviews, life in sngs and other what-nots. being with the sngs folks always feels like home.

after that, shopping! and we had delicious xiao long baos oozing with juicy goodness for dinner. yum. :) happy day.

how sweet it is.

You and me, we lay awake in lust and rust in the rain
And pour over everything we say we trust
Well it happened again
I listened in through hallways and thin doors
Where the rivers unwind and the rust and the rain endure
The rust and the rain endure, I'm sure.


yes, how sweet it is! i've finally settled the two recommendation letters i need. :D all is well! now i just need to finish my personal statement and cv and i'll be able to submit my portfolio.



p.s. here are some really cute wallpapers from south park, the funniest tv programme never to come to singapore.

and, one of the most interesting group blogs i've read in a while.

time to buy and time to lose yourself.

i'm fifteen for a moment,
caught in between ten and twenty
and i'm just dreaming,
counting the ways to where you are


yesterday night was a flurry of activity. first, the eleco campfire at six. i suppose it was just like yesteryear's, with silly games, singing, dancing and what-nots. the juniors are stepping down soon, and then the whole cycle of erm, council regeneration will start again. i wish them all the best. :)

left early because mari could give me a lift to the house of many ducks, also known as jonathan's place. he has duck-everything, from the cushions to the paper towels. we did all the things we did the last time, and more. watched cellular, which started out like another stupid action flick but somewhat picked up speed at the end. i still don't like action flicks. the rest of the night consisted of activities like playing halo 3 on jon's x-box and pigging out on junk food. i'm sure i've mentioned this before- being with 03s75 really makes me happy.

oh, and happy birthday to my dear jac! you are all of beautiful, special and a delight to have as a friend. i hope you liked the fcuk slippers!

please note, i want to post a photo weave but i don't have good photo-editing software right now... soon.

geekhood.

back in sngs, i always enjoyed putting in just that bit of effort to do well enough to please myself. nothing more. i guess i was an arrogant little twit. only when i came to hwa chong did i realise that i wasn't smart at all, and that i had to work my shits off to stay afloat. the last six months of life in hwa chong was all about overworking and stressing yourself to the point that it became hard to think about anything else than studying. it seemed to me like there was an imperative need to know more, learn more and understand more. then suddenly, after stuffing my short-term memory full with strange facts and figures, it was all over.

one of the main reasons why i chose to go to hwa chong (my parents wanted me to go to anderson jc because it's near my place) was because i wanted to be a geek. seriously. i wanted to be around like-minded people so that i would study my ass off. looking back, i guess my plan worked. somewhat.

choosing medicine would be signing on to a lifetime of geekhood. but yours truly is a geek at heart after all.

because this doesn't happen just everyday.

WOOOOHOOOO!

i love you world!

on health, in sickness.

Tell me did you sail across the sun
Did you make it to the milky way to see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated

Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were looking at yourself out there


i detest this stupid nasal congestion and itchy throat syndrome that has been plaguing me for the past few days. it's burning up the few days i'm free to go out this week. there are so many things i want to do, spend my 50 bucks isetan voucher, eat at spizza's, bring my parents to indochine waterfront, try this new pizza buffet...

i would sulk, but this weekend promises wonderous things! eleco camp, woohoo! and 03s75 is having a gathering on the same night, so i'll try to pop by for that too.

germs and viruses, i spurn thee like a cur out of my way! please let me be well enough to taste the good old ke pa ji (scary chicken) that we're going to have on satuday...

class of 03s75, hwa chong junior college.

celebrating the past, the present and the future. love you guys!

opportunity cost.

i sometimes ask myself, how much would i give?

truth is, nothing much at all.

i suppose i just like the way my life is going now. if you're happy, wouldn't you want it to stay that way? wouldn't you guard the gate to your heart fiercely, just because people didn't always cherish its entry?

okaaay. enough of speaking crytically and sounding disgustingly self-absorbed! i really hope NUS contacts me soon.

with all its sham, drugery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. be cheerful. strive to be happy.

the tea leaf.


a hot cup of tea @ flickr.
waiye sent me this photo. you can actually see smoke wafting from the teacup. adorable, yes?

and, something simple but beautiful to ponder on.

i feel the stillness of the sun and i feel fine.

Sunset sailing on april skies
Bloodshot fireclouds in her eyes
I can't say what I might believe
But if God made you
He's in love with me


that is just pretty, isn't it. :)

presenting the new indochine winebar & restaurant receptionist! i'm now the person saying "indochine, good morning. how may i assist you?" on the phone.

some days just feel nice. you wake up with the feeling of pure, simple contentment running through every inch of your being. some days are just perfect in that they go by without a hitch. some days, like today, are just happy days.

eleco camp soon! can't wait to see the 30th councillors again, and to try the haho circuit!

the future in plain sight.

if you're willing to take the chance, the view from the other side is spectacular.

today, i will tell my dear girl weifang that i'm very proud of her. congratulations on receiving the national healthcare group scholarship! i believe that she has made an excellent choice, and that she will excel greatly in her chosen field-- physiotherapy.

i envy her. now she knows exactly what her future holds. yours truly, on the other hand, is waiting, hanging on a thread.

may all tidings be as good as today's.

it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

pope john paul II, 1920 - 2005.

whatever your religion, whatever your belief, you must surely have the time to remember a great individual who has since passed from our midst.

walk me down your broken line.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

i'm in love with three absolutely gorgeous voices. and though john mayer is the only one who looks remotely decent and joseph arthur looks like he's doing a bad john lennon impersonation, my heart will not waver. you see, true love is blind.

sample these:

  • john mayer -- victoria, daughters, your body is a wonderland.
  • joseph arthur -- in the sun, honey and the moon, you're so true, i would rather hide, a smile that explodes, can't exist.
  • joshua radin -- closer, today, the one you knew.

    pure bliss.

    dramatically different.

    photographs and brightly colored paper
    are your mask you wear in this caper
    that is our life
    we walk right into the strife
    and a tear from your eye brings me home

    the clouds in your eyes
    down your face they pour
    won't you be the new one burn to shine
    i take the blue ones every time
    walk me down your broken line
    all you have to do is cry


    i just spent the last half hour looking up a woman's cervix. she has cervical cancer so the radiologist was inserting some equipment to give her radiotherapy. it wasn't really disgusting until she started bleeding.

    too much information? anyway since today is my last day at NCC, i've decided to use the doctor's computer to blog. i feel that i've learnt so much in the course of these two weeks. perhaps not the medical aspect (i don't understand most of the terms they use), but the compassion and dedication that the oncologists show. cancer is a disease that requires a good, hard fight, and the oncologists here at NCC are amazing.

    oh i finally took a walk in the underground from SGH back to NCC. all alone, too! for the uninitiated, the underground is this network of passages that connects all the buildings of SGH. it's also where they wheel dead bodies to the mortuary.

    all right time to go home now. i don't think i'll miss waking up at 5.30am everyday to be at the hospital at 7.00am... though it has been quite an experience. it's back to good old indochine on monday, they kept my job for me! :)
