heart.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

home, after the experience of a lifetime. singapore is too warm, the people on its streets too impersonal.

will write more on the trip soon, after i acquire all my photos from caleb's computer. right now, i'm just happy to be home. it's new year's eve already. :)

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me save that Thou art
Thou my best thought, by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light

Be Thou my wisdom and Thou my true word
I ever with Thee and Thou with me Lord
Thou my great Father and I Thy true son
Thou in me dwelling and I with Thee one

woaaaah, for the longest time.

I'm that voice you're hearing in the hall
And the greatest miracle of all
Is how I need you, and how you needed me too
That hasn't happened in the longest time

thank you em for the beautiful, cheery song!

and today, i disappear to the depths of rural china for two weeks.

happy christmas! love, peace and joy to the world. :) take care, ya' all. will miss you.

I don't care what consequence it brings
I have been a fool for lesser things
I want you so bad, I think you ought to know that
I intend to hold you for the longest time

brick.

'tis late, my girls madd and jiahui have just left my house after a great evening of relaxing and talking over good food.

suddenly the prospect of leaving singapore and being somewhat incommunicado for two weeks is rather... daunting.

i am still not properly packed. i haven't bought postcards for the children in china, i haven't decided what clothes to take out of my luggage so that everything will fit, my phone just died so i'm trying to get used to my mom's, i haven't found a toiletries bag, i don't have enough woollen socks, i forgot to stock up on emergency food, i want to finish making some christmas cards if i can, my room is in a mess and i want to clean it up before i leave...

ack! alot of things to settle tomorrow. i'm terribly last minute!

and i'm going to miss all of you, especially you, alot.

She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly
Off the coast and I'm headed nowhere

here are some 'giant' cornflake boxes. haha. i don't think they look so big actually.

3stani withdrawal symptoms now. boo. and i'll be missing the annual council chrisco party too! well i'll see everyone in three weeks, after i'm back from the depths of rural china. :)

Let's go, drive till the morning comes
And watch the sunrise and fill our souls up
We’ll drink some wine till we get drunk, yes

It's crazy, I’m thinking, just knowing that the world is round
And here I’m dancing on the ground
Am I right side up or upside down
And is this real, oh Lord, or am I dreaming?

yet another day of mad fun with the 3stanis! watching horror movies in a beeeg hall, sitting by the edge of the pool, munching on deliciously healthy and unhealthy food, posing for various amusing shots, chocolate fondue at midnight, watching hon get uzapped, just talking the night away... thank you ian for opening his home to us. :) everyone was sunburnt from the sports morning at alvin's condo except for lazy me and not-so-lazy aileen.
