what goes around...

aha so i won something from calling power98 this afternoon on my way home from school. a cd hamper, not bad!!! but i think the deejay was rather irritated with me though, haha. he wanted me to tell him my "top three songs" so i started off with fuel's shimmer (an old favourite of mine) before he said "is that a new song? gotta be new songs!" i haven't been listening to local radio at all, so thinking fast, i coughed up beyonce's irreplacable, justin timberlake's what goes around and christina aguilera's ain't no other man. i don't even think he was satisfied then, because ain't no other man isn't exactly a new song. after getting home, i decided to check what his program was all about.

FRIDAY HITS SURVEY - Nothing but the hottest hits of today! You call in and predict what’s gonna be number 1 on POWER’s weekend charts with prizes galore! This is your chance to take your 15-seconds of fame as well. Start practicing your DJing skills now before I ask you to go on-air with me!

ohhhhh. no wonder he wasn't satisfied with with my song choices. i don't really know what's popular now. he should have said "tell me three songs that teenagers like right now!" instead of... "tell me your top three songs!" i would then have been able to make a more intelligent guess - the pussycat dolls?

well i also got to say on air that i thought prof ling was cool, though the deejay was rattling off something about how the students must all have crushes on him. gee.

my power over you grows stronger yet.

the phantom of the opera at the esplanade yesterday with ryan, xuamy, xiz, huilin, li and brenda. (whom we met there!) we had such fun! the singing was beautiful, the sets breathtaking. was really blown away by the phantom, brian little, so much so i felt heartbroken for him at the end. and christine's performance of wishing you were somehow here again made me melt.

michael crawford and sarah brightman, the original phantom and christine.

and sarah brightman singing wishing you were somehow here again. i'm not sure why there's an mtv for this.

another musical that i would really love to watch is evita.

I don't expect my love affairs to last for long
Never fool myself that my dreams will come true
Being used to trouble I anticipate it
But all the same I hate it -- wouldn't you?

So what happens now?
Another suitcase in another hall
So what happens now?
Take your picture off another wall
Where am I going to?
You'll get by, you always have before
Where am I going to?

awwww alright. :) time to get back to studying for finals!

the love bug.

read about herbie on someone else's blog... i have a soft spot for this adorable volkswagen beetle. herbie: fully loaded was the first movie i watched with TK back in 2005. it's been almost 2 years since we first met... and then there's june, which i am hopeful about.

sigh, time to study harder.

something for my soul somewhere.

dessert-time at menotti's with rose, huilin, li, joachim, marcus and joel! photos conveniently stolen from the blogs of huilin and joachim. :)

at kevin moe's NUS piano ensemble concert with joel and joshua ong. will admit i felt sleepy at some points, but i didn't actually fall asleep (hmmm). liked the gershwin and the rachmaninov... and really enjoyed one of the pieces that kevin played, aaron copland's hoe-down. :)

pop! goes my heart.

alison's 21st school of rock party, with the sngs girls. zhi en's party was on the same night, but i don't have photos of that now.

I've been watching but the stars refuse to shine
I've been searching but I just don't see the signs
I know that it's out there
There's got to be something for my soul somewhere

I've been looking for someone to shed some light
Not just somebody just to get me throught the night
I could use some direction
And I'm open to your suggestions

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart again
I guess I'm hoping you'll be there for me in the end

was happy watching music and lyrics, even though the story wasn't very strong. :) pretty songs! and a good-looking cast that included the ever-charming hugh grant and sweet drew barrymore. all girls need romantic comedies and good old-fashioned love songs, sometime.
