Moving out is women's biz heh

Yippie kayee...

I'm at my sis' place now. Just moved some of my stuffs here and now her room is kinda full *hoho

The funny thing is, the three of us: Sis, Lele and I, carried more things than the mover guy. He kept asking if I need him to carry stuffs via SMS and when he came *he was late!* ... he lazily helped us out. much for paying your labour. To make things worse, it rained!

Incident A: He smoked after he parked his car while I was waiting for him to come and help out. He definitely saw me, and I had to carried all the way to his van before he walked over

Incident B: He purposely did not want to lend his hands although he saw the girls were carrying boxes and bags. He walked pass us and pretend to carry other things

Incident C: Guess who walk the trolley?

Incident D: During unloading, he was waiting for me to carry out some boxes. I put the PC monitor and CPU on the trolley. He asked, "You wanna wait here -the van-? I wait here lar -so I would be the one carrying the monitor and CPU and the boxes to the second level-"

I said, " carry the monitor first lar, very heavy ler. I wait here lor." *grinned*

So he had to push the trolley to the stairs and carried the monitor upstairs.

But well, I carried out all the boxes and bags to the seats next to the stairs owkay... and I could see him half-heartedly carried the stuffs, one by one, small one first.

Once I finished with the van, I carried as many things as possible to the second level *hoping he would feel abit ashamed come girls are more powerful -__-'

No choice for him, he had to follow and carry too *I laughed inside haha...evil laughter..muahaha

Still, in the end, we carry more than him although he perspired too *wakaka

So, how much? "$35," he replied.

I gave him $40 and he smiled brightly. So much for a guy...

Girls are superwoman, man!
We even had to carry to the 2nd storey, to my sis room by ourselves k.

Anyway...we made it through, at least we trained some muscles, did some exercise... and now I am sitting here, munching some snacks


Heard this at 98.7fm, right after John Mayer's song...

Neighbours said that they can hear the excitement from John and Jessica's bedroom. .... ....

VJ: It isn't sexual activities, but because Jessica managed to finish the jigsaw puzzle that she just bought in TWO days. She was overjoyed as it's stated 'FOR 2-3 YEARS' and she did it in TWO days.

If you get what I mean... wakakaka

1st exam for 2007

My first exam of the semester.

The one with the least preparation at all (you may ask: In NTU? No preparation? Kidding me rite? No, I AM NOT KIDDING YOU HERE).

Coz I / we / whole class sorta dunno what to study.

It was Event Management class.

But let's called it Exam Management assessment.

It's a social class, what should I say.

No right, no wrong, nothing to blame.

Just whether she likes it...... or not!


Geez... seriously yesterday's paper was the one with the least preparation. Spend my time watching movie, blogging and surfing the net, reading magazines and books, packing and chatting.

I even went to town in the morning before the exam. Collected some documents, signed some documents, went to the temple at Bugis and had lunch with my dearie sis before I returned to NTU and took the paper.

Simple... just like dat. Don't ask me how's it... I dunno, molla!


Why you wear so nice?

D: See, today everyone's wearing so nice. Must be party time after this (red: exam).

Glad I went out from the 'mighty jungle' and spent some quality time (I insist it IS) with Cit2 and Alf and dear sis. Dinner at Cafe Cartel that made me feel bloated *wah man... can't take it anymore haha* followed by my fave gelato at Paragon. Fat come fat go! shoo...

I like it. Managed to catch up again after our deadly FYPs. Just love it!

Thanks for the time, friends!

free hugs for everyone

Have you heard about the Free Hugs campaign?

If not, click here>>
Sick Puppies must have lotsa big fans out there now *It's a nice song though

Brother Jing sent me the link last year and my eyes went blurry after watching it. It's so sweet. If only everyone makes that little bit of share of compassion to make this world a better place to live in.

It reaches Asia, thanks to the Internet, modernization and technological advancement.

Now, the Free Hugs campaign travels...

To Korea. From Insadong to Myong Dong. Click here>>, here>> and here>>.

To Japan. From Shibuya to Shinjuku. Click here>> and here>>.

To China. From Beijing to Shanghai. Click here>>.

To Australia, Peru, Hollywood, Italy, Vancouver, Amsterdam, Chicago, Venezuela, Tel Aviv, Mexico, France, Israel, and am sure many more.

The love spreads! and it makes someone's day, even if just a single one.

So, shall we have this in Singapore? Shall we start it? even some people from a more 'conservative' country do it, why not the Uniquely Singapore, a mixed of tradition and modernity. Although the latter surely holds a bigger portion. SHALL WE, FRIENDS?

Some observations:
1. It's not easy to start, to get people warming up to the idea of hugging a total stranger, especially in Asian countries. The chances of people looking at you, running away or snapping pictures are much higher -__-''
I like the effect where the clips start with b/w and they change to coloured when the people hugged the very first person.

2. A group work may help boosting up your comfy level and confidence, but unsure if it's the best way to start.
So, if a group of 3 people start it.... means everyone must hug at least 3 times right? cool...yeah

3. I admit they're fashionable (Korea, Japan and China). Layers of clothings, nicely styled hair... haha

4. I saw my 'Reds Go Together' shirt that I got from my @Korea friend, Andrew on a Korean kid. Miss em all. Awwhh...

5. Westerners? *if I shall use this word* are more open towards this hugging culture and campaign. So true in real life. Thanks to AIESEC for opening up my mind on this sure I won't miss all those hugs that I received thus far.

So, shall we?

Btw, have you hugged someone today? moi haven't.... ^^'

Now you must be convinced that I am bored, have plenty of 'free' time, and I don't study MUCH *sigh..

I am HOT...

or so I think!



Emo Kid


















What Highschool Clique Do You Belong To?

So, I'm a mixed of a HOT and EMO personality. What is EMO?

COOL EMO KID (COOL...only for the COOL ones):

Doesnt care what ppl think, likes a good band whether they are on mtv or not, and won't stop listening to some band just cuz everyone suddenly 'discovered' them (I like good songs, period. Slow, jazz, hip hop, RnB, Pop, etc as long as they're good, I don't mind listening. You don't have to be on MTV -they're not dat good anymore I think hoho-).

They do nothing to make ppl feel bad for them, and want no ones sympathy (shall let you guys decide...dun think this is close to 100% truth haha). They give everything a chance before deeming it cool or uncool (, I want a tattoo now? I'll let you know if it's cool or not once Ihave it k). And if they want to kill themselves, they do it (Boy..scary heh).

They dont shop regularly at hot topic, but dont' completely disregard it (It's OK, I do gossip haha). If there's something they want to buy, they go for it, and dont deny they bought it there (I don't buy branded items -This sounds so wrong coz all items come with a 'brand' now. Okay, I mean luxurious items. NO LV, NO WATEVER PRADA, GUCCI, etc. I don't mind receiving gifts though wahahaha).

Most of what they wear is from hand me downs, a garbage, a thrift shop, or was found (Hm...checkin my closet..). They dress how they want, and never deliberately try to piss ppl off or 'rebel' (Sporty one day, feminine the next day, gangster style the day after...). If they do something rebellious, it is not just to be rebellious, it is because they want to/believe in doing it (Let me think. Smoking, drugs, physical bullying - never. Ow..maybe like nose piercing?).

They respect people who dont want to put drugs in their body, but some COOL EMO KIDS do drugs because they feel like it (Okay..I shall admit, I AM NOT a cool emo kid. This is so way outta me...haha a screwed quiz).

Just for fun anywae.

ps: Just received a call, I got my flight on 27th. Trying to get 28th *sigh..

A day like today..


1. Still haven't gotten my letter from the Embassy of Ukraine (from Ukraine) to apply for my visa. Just received an email from the @er there that the Embassy apparently never really stated when they can collect the letter. So, she has been going down to the Embassy a couple of times to no avail. Moreover, the Embassy is only open on Monday and Friday.
** Gosh, so my chance is only this Friday and latest by next Monday or else... I don't even wanna think about it.

2. Went down to the travel agency today to get my itinerary (need it for my Turkey visa application). Give me a shock when the airline cancelled my flight yesterday, and she has not able to get back my seat for 28th -____-' *huhuhuhu* So, she called someone from the airline and checked on the possibility. "Quite tough," she said, adding that it's been over-booked. In the end, she suggested me to travel on 27th instead. I had no choice but to agree, but still I prefer to travel on 28th okay. 27th is very rush for me. She'll contact me back on this.

However, I need to issue the ticket soon too. And how am I gonna do this without knowing my visa status now? Geez... worse still, I will have to pay extra fee should I wanna change the schedule after issuing the ticket. Confused.... Rawrs....

3. Should I pack now? aihh....

Anyway, I rushed from the travel agency to the Turkish Embassy today. The consular opens only till 12noon. So, I took a $4 cab there, not too costly I think. Considering I don't have to walk back to Bugis MRT station, and walk to the Embassy from Raffles Place MRT Station and risk of getting lost among the skycrapers.

I asked if it's gonna take long to reach the Embassy.

'Nothing is long in Singapore,' he replied.

Adding, "... except Lee H**** L***'s pay." --> refering to Spore's latest talk in the country hoo....

Woopppzzz, I just smiled while he continued his 'talk'.

"If the economic is booming, then it's fine. But now, alot of people do not have job. Foreigners are taking away our jobs *forehead wrinkled, brows raised*. He still wants a pay rise when he has already received over 1 million. We only received 1000, you know. And he has received alot of free things. ...

"I just took a foreigner working in Singapore -before I hailed his cab-. He -the passenger- said that everything in Singapore is expensive. He only earns $800/mth, needs to pay his rental, food, and left with $100 to save. But this $100 also goes to transportation. So what for?

The uncle told him to rob a bank *wakaka*. If possible, without being caught ^^'. Oww.. and he added, "I asked him not to tell my name if he got caught."

Then the topic changed to the foreign workers in Singapore. He pitied those blue-collar workers. They paid alot just to get to Singapore, and they ended up being 'cheated' by the agencies. Some need to work for 9 months before they can pay their so-called loan. This reminded me of a friend in Fish n Co who had to pay over $5000 just to come and work in Singapore (FYI, they definitely come from developing country, meaning: $5000 means a fortune to them). She told me that she has a contract of 5 years before she can leave. Imagine that!

Such a fruitful conversation for a $4 cab fare.

When I arrived at SGX Centre level 10, there was a short queue at the one and only counter. No problemo! I just wanna try my luck and see if they'd accept all the documents. No ticket (just itinerary), no accommodation (wait for visa approval before I book), no sponsor's ID (which they said no need..then watever lar).

Met some Australians who are going to Europe for an educational project. Unfortunately, one of the students, a Pinoy, can't enter France without visa. They did not know this as the travel agency back in Perth did not mention anything at all (Australians do not need a visa to enter though). So, she was stranded at the airport the day before *poor girl :( . The France embassy refused to assist and they had to call for help from their Australia's Ministry * cool.*

It must be a stressful incident for the girl. She was quiet, but I could sense the fear from her body language. What if she could not get the visa and being left behind? The rest of the team has flown to France the day before, and so she was there with another two Australians. These two Australians are leaving soon too, if I'm not wrong... Saturday, I heard the lady told the Embassy staff. Thanks God that the Turkish Embassy is much nicer than some of the Embassies. They will process her application within today. She can collect it today and hopefully she can fly to Istanbul with the other two and wait for the rest of the team there. As of her France trip..."It's being processed by the Ministry, see what they can do," I was told.

What an experience! It was a nice conversation with the three of them. I told them to go to Esplanade while waiting for her visa. They can even eat at Lau Pa Sat which is just across the street and try Singapore's local delight. I wished them the very best and waved them goodbye under the rain.

And there I was, stranded under the rain without an umbrella. Nowhere to go and it was lunch time. I could see all the working professionals around the area in their formal wear. Restaurants and cafe were full with long queues still. I ended up waiting at MPH bookstore, browsing through the Korean Dictionary *wahaha*.

Well... whether or not I am flying next week, I still need to move out of this room. So...let's pack beibs!

S.O.S 1: Anyone free this Friday, 3-4pm? I have my paper on and my Turkey visa is ready for collection.
S.O.S 2: Anyone free this Sunday evening? I need some muscles to help me here..
S.O.S 3: I still don't mind having kind souls lending me your book collections *hee..

Give me my letter soonest please....hiks hiks

the FIVE people I will meet in heaven

I wonder who are the FIVE people I will meet in heaven.

I am glad I finally managed to get the book at quite a low $10 price although it is a second hand book. I also bought Freakonomics at the same price from the same guy. He will return to his home country soon and can't afford to bring all his books back.

So, I spent last week reading this book instead of studying for my papers *hah? what paper you say? yah I also think I don't have any papers -___-''
The story was written in an easily digestible style, and each chapter comes with a lesson. The same reason why I like JDorama. Some lessons are so taken for granted that we do not realize the values, and yet Mitch Albom managed to provoke me with this.

Do not continue reading if you have yet to read the book and plan to read it some time in the near future.

This is a spoiler k.
Obviously, you don't mind me spoiling some parts of the story.

Eddie is the main character and this book tells his journey in heaven, with a great capture of his past life and how the five characters he met might not necessarily someone he knows. This is the story... on how our lives entangled with others.

Lesson ONE from the Blue Man:

"My funeral," the Blue Man said. "Look at the mourners. Some did not even know me well, yet they came. Why? Did you ever wonder? Why people gather when others die? Why people feel they should?

"It is because the human spirit knows, deep down, that all lives intersect. That death doesn't just take someone, it misses someone else, and in the small distance being taken and being missed, lives are changed. ...

One withers, another grows. Birth and death are part of a whole.

"It is why we are drawn to babies..." And to funerals."

--And this Blue Man and Eddie do not know each other. Eddie was eight when the Blue Man died in a car accident.

"Strangers," the Blue Man said, " are just family you have yet to come to know."

Lesson TWO from the Captain:

"SACRIFICE," the Captain said. "You made one. I made one. We all make them. But you were angry over yours. You kept thinking about what you lost.

"You didn't get it. Sacrifice is part of life. It is supposed to be. It's not something to regret. It's something to aspire to.


"Sometimes when you sacrifice somehting precious, you're not really losing it. You're just passing it on to someone else."

Lesson THREE from the Pier's wife, Ruby:

"Learn this from me. Holding anger is a poison. It eats you from inside. We think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. But hatred is a curved blade. And the harm we do, we do to ourselves.

"Forgive, Edward. Forgive. ...

Lesson FOUR from the wife, Marguerite:

"Lost love is still love, Eddie. It takes different form, that's all. You can't see their smile or bring them food or tousle their hair or move them around a dance floor. But when thsoe senses weaken, anotehr heightens. Memory. Memory becomes your partner. You nurture it. you hold it. You dance with it.

"Life has to end," she said. "Love doesn't."

Lesson FIVE from the little girl, Amy:

"I was sad because I didn't do anything with my life. I was nothing. I accomplished nothing. I was lost. I felt like I wasn't supposed to be there. "

"Supposed to be there," she said.

"Where? At Ruby Pier?"

She nodded.

"Fixing rides? That was my existence?," He blew a deep breathe. "Why?"

She tilted her head, as if it was obivious.

"Children," she said. "You keep them safe, you make good for me."

"Is where you supposed to be," she said, and then she touched his shirt patch with a a small laugh and added two words, "Eddie Main-ten-ance."


There was a pier filled with thousands of people, man and women, fathers and mothers and children - so many children- children from the past and the present, children who have not yet been born, side by side, hand in hand, in caps, in short pants, filling the boardwalk and the rides and the wooden platforms, sitting on each other's shoulders, sitting in each other's laps. They were there, or would be there, because of the simple mundane things Eddie had done in his life, the accidents he has prevented, the rides he had kept safe, the unnoticed turns he had affected every day. ...


Mitch Albom wrote this book in dedication to his beloved uncle, Edward Beitchman, whogave him the first concept of heaven. Every Thanksgiving, he always spoke of a night in the hospital when he awoke to see the souls of his departed loved ones sitting on the edge of the bed, waiting for him.

Seriously a great book to read. Makes me appreciate what I have even more. And surely, things happen for a reason.

So on my waitlist:
- Freakonomics
- Chicken Soup - 2 books *haven't finished ler..
- The boy called It *it's been so long since I try to borrow the book. Anyone?
- Tuesdays with Morrie *another book by Mitch Albom, who wrote about his Professor. Do you guys have this?
- Ukraine - the Bradt Guide *Thanks Lele for the book :)
- any good recommendation...??


Have yet to receive my letter till today. Afraid I may have to wait till Friday coz apparently the Embassy was closed for 4 days due to Easter.

Called the travel agent again, and the airline cancelled my flight for the third times *hahaha*. OK, final deadline is Friday, 12 noon to issue the ticket.

Hm...have filled in my Turkey and Czech visa application form. But the problem: Do I have time to apply for this? Turkey takes 3 days, Czech takes 5 days. Even if I pay more and go the 'Express' way for Ukraine... I don't have time to apply all three. How?


Oww yah, my super duper sincere gratitude to Lele, Won Jang *this time I got it right ^^, and my AIESEC in NTU members. You guys are amazingly sweet heh.

Lele... Y'know I'm gonna need the guide so much for my trip, and a cozy soft pillow to snuggle with. Accompanies by a sweet card *not shown in the pic*. To ce lei wor wahaha am blessed to have you as my roomie too.

A 'Thanks' card with messages from some of my members. Thanks much journey won't be complete without your presence too. It's indeed great to be an LCP.

And not to be missed *although I have yet to take a pic with me wearing it*, THANKS MUCH Won for the @jacket. So sweet and thoughtful of you *yes, Ukraine is defintiely cooler than Singapore* to bring it over to India from Korea. Thanks Shub for bringing it back from India too.
Will post the pic as promised k.

Kanpai for the three of us

We smiled as we left the PPC Lab. I think we did great for the Final Year Presentation. Not much questions were asked, but advices were given to improve the report.

Our supervisor was happy with us and the project. She mentioned how we work well as a team and no major issues happened in the process. Ow, she added that we did more than what we presented today *of course...15 mins can only say so much*. Thanks sup! Moderator A said he will definitely give a high grade for our project in terms of practicatility and how the events met our objectives. But he left the academic part out for the Moderator B and our supervisor to comment. It was pretty funny looking at them, especially when Moderator A was telling us on 'Creative Strategy vs Tactics' and how the other two gave a 'huh...shsstt don't listen' kinda face *wakaka. Ok, I didn't know whether I have to smile or pretend that I was seriously listening to him. Moderator B gave her sharing on the project, how we managed to pull out a good event, consistent designs and creative. Cool.... Thanks Cherie for all the creatives! Thanks Alison for all the reminder and details!

It was not as 'formal, scary, serious, intense, etc' as what people said, or what some of us predicted. It was....normal heh! Blah..anyhow...I am happy and I hope we score high mark for our FYP. Kanpai!'s time to relax after so much hardwork put in *heh...are you kidding me? hardwork?* ...haha.... it's Drama time. Catch up later ^^


Thanks Sharon for sending me my fave song from the show :)

All I ask of you - Phantom of the Opera
(Andrew Lloyd Weber)

No more talk of darkness,
Forget these wide-eyed fears.
I'm here, nothing can harm you
-my words will warm and calm you.

Let me be your freedom,
let daylight dry -your tears.

I'm here, with you, beside you,
to guard you and to guide you . . .

Say you love me every waking moment,
turn my head with talk of summertime . . .
Say you need me with you,now and always . . .
promise me that all you say is true
-that's all I ask of you . . .

Let me be your shelter,
let me be your light.
You're safe: No-one will find you
your fears are far behind you . . .

All I want is freedom, a world with no more night . . .
and you always beside me to hold me and to hide me . . .

Then say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime . . .
Let me lead you from your solitude . . .
Say you need me with you here, beside you . . .
anywhere you go, let me go too
-Christine,that's all I askof you . . .

Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime . . .
say the word and I will follow you . . .

Share each day with me, each night, each morning . . .

Say you love me . . .

You know I do . . .

Love me -that's all I askof you . . .
Anywhere you go let me go too . . .
Love me -that's all I ask of you . .

14 days...a yes or no?

Supposedly 14 days from now...I'll be on my way.

Yet, I'm still waiting for the letter. Hoping I'd get it latest by Monday.

I have relented to go for the 'express' way in getting my visa once I received the letter. That means forking out more money.

After which I shall issue my flight ticket, for fear that they will cancel it for the third times.

Start preparing the documents to apply for Turkey's transit visa. I can stopover there and spend 3 days before returning to the red dot.

And maybe..If I'm lucky enough, I will be given a chance to pay Czech Republic a visit.

Let's hope for this dream to come true.

Ah, meanwhile.... All the very best for your exams, be it the final one, or just your initial testing ground.

indulgence is a sin :)

It was a day of indulgence!

The AIESEC NTU Marketing workshop Organizing Committee went for a lunch with Prof Hooi and Prof Wan. He told me that we would go out of NTU for a lunch, but did not specify where and what to eat. Since we all are omnivore, we can take anything I assume.

So, this afternoon, ten of us, two cars, two allies went for a yummy treat at Singapore Yacht Club (or something like dat hehe). Cool place where we can see all the yachts on their polls and Indonesia at the end of the sea.

Since we arrived later (Prof Wan finished his class at 12.30), they had already ordered some finger food *hahaha what a right timing for us*. So, what I had today for lunch?

It was a nice lunch at a nice place with a bunch of great people. Unfortunately, careless me forgot to bring my purse and cards, so I had to return to my room and get them before I can proceed to town for my FYP meeting.

The meeting was supposed to start at 3pm at National Youth Centre, but I arrived in NTU Biz Skul at 2.50pm *hee...* So, after rushing back to my room, I decided to take a cab there and there goes my $16 *bye bye bye...

And so what is this a day of indulgence about? Only lunch right?


Since I was in town, too bad lar if I don't go, hang around, see see shop shop. But well, nothing to buy and I started to feel like munching something. There I walked into Delifrance Bistro. A 10-inch Vienna Chicken Sausage pizza and a chocolate cake with vanilla ice-cream as my dessert. Totally ruin my 'waist-loss' or 'fat-burner' programme.

I ate half of the pizza *means 4 slices* and packed the rest. I passed it to Zami for his supper on my way back to my room. Btw, thanks for helping me to reformat my pc ^.*

ps: I seriously dislike all the visa application procedures. Wanna go Romania, so difficult to apply. Wanna go Rusia, even worse. Wanna go Belarus or Moldova, not easy either. Wanna go Czech Republic, needs a lot of documents. Wanna stopover at Turkey, more things to prepare. Geez... Why?

The Phantom of the Opera

My first time inside the Esplanade Theatre...

The set design and props were awesome. Can't believe how they changed the whole setting in a few seconds. The costumes were marvellous too...haha too bad we (Sharon, Phoebe and Imran) sat high up there, or else...I can see how good-looking Raoul and Phantom are *hahaha

Sorry for being super duper late yar....

What do you look for in a relationship?

In quest to answer this question, my MSN friends were questioned:
What do you look for in a relationship?
Hope it helps to find the answer that lies deep within.

A relationship that can help me to understand my own self better
- **T**, female

I look for security and commitment...long term vision i must say.
A relationship that makes me 'livelier'... from both negative and positive emotions
if i look back...i know dat it has made my life a lil more complete...something that.. if it didn't happened, the 'value' of life is lesser.
Eventho it's jealously or quarrel moments.. it's miss-able.

- *O**T*, female

Comfort, support and security... secure in trust and commitment to each other i guess... regardless of time or distance.. but in the times tat do matter...
- **A*O*, female

Emphatic listening.
... and only when you are sincere, open and genuine then u can talk and share.

- **O**E, female

A companion of a life time... someone who accepts my good and my bad sides and helps me be the best person i can be...
- *I**A, female

I'm lookin for someone to complement me in life...
The literal soulmate i guess

- **R***E, male

Warmth, affection, mutual respect, reciprocality... all that stuff. Lots of hugs and intellectual conversations.
- *A***O*, male

I guess doing things together.
availability , love and to be loved to some extend.
- *D*, male

So, what does this show?

It's hard to get male respondents *haha*
I can't just simply ask any guys in my list, I have to screen them first though mah *kidding

Let's summarize:

Females look for a relationship that helps them to understand themselves and be a better person. A relationship that gives them the sense of security *not financially* and comfort. We need commitment, emphatic listening and strong support to make it work and we assume that being in a relationship means that we do care and 'love' each other. We are looking for something intangible, very abstract and emotional. Are we asking for too much?

Males, on the other hand, look for something more physical? Oopz..hope I don't spread any wrong perceptions here. Well, I am sure females also long for affection, warmth, togetherness and so on... but interestingly, we don't state this in the answer. We go beyond that. More intrinsic I think, something that may be too ideal at times, but doesn't stop us from dreaming and hoping. Dreams are great. Hopes are great. They keep us alive (Count how many fairytale stories and dramas we have ^^).

At the beginning, we want them to stay true, care and love us always. Someone who needs to understand us and make us feel like we're the One. Someone to share our happiness and sadness, someone who will keep assuring you on your beautiful life. Someone who laugh and cry with you. Someone who look at you and you'll feel thousand times better just coz he/she feels with you. But, do we even give the same amount of what we ask for? Or do we only 'take' and never 'give' in return? It's tiring if it's so...

I remembered our AIESEC NTU BBQ Outing, we had a sharing on this issue. People say they look for a caring partner, someone they can rely to, someone who is indepent and understanding. A committed relationship. If I could, I would love to have all these traits and characteristics. How ideal huh? But perfection is not what I am looking for, I want someone that I can hold on to, someone that I can relate and not too high-up-there that I find it hard to even talk to. Someone who is ordinary is best.

Caring - check
Understanding - check
Honest - check
Kind - check
Loyal - check
Committed - check
and the list goes on and on and on.... (are we even that great to ask for so many things?)

At times, do we ask for too much from our counterpart, but we ourselves fail to give what they need? Do we even deserve to ask for so many things in a relationship?

What I want... If I could use one word, I want security. I want to be able to trust him in everything he did, does and will do. I want to commit in whatever I say and promise. I want to support him all the way. I want someone who can protect me and be there when I need him the most. I want to be able to understand him. I want someone whom I can talk to and be myself. And I want him to feel the same way too. Therefore, the security can come in peacefully.

Nah, a friend always refers this security to financial matters. It's not a must, it's an added-value dear ^.*

For me, security sums it all. Are we asking too much?

I don’t know when it all started
When my head became dizzy with thoughts of you
These thoughts would often pop up in my mind
I feel anxious as my heart expands towards you

It’s nothing.. it’s just a little thing
Your words are awkward to me

Is it love? If you feel the same way, is it a beginning?
My heart keeps saying it loves you
It screams out for the whole world to hear
Why has it taken so long for me to hear it~?
We’ve finally met.. finally found love

If I wanted to show you how I feel
The only way would be for you to become me

I’m already inside of you
Just like you’re inside of me

To each other [to each other]
We may already be too accustomed

Is it love? If you feel the same way, is it a beginning?
My heart keeps saying it loves you
It screams out for the whole world to hear
Why has it taken so long for me to hear it~?
We’ve finally met.. finally found love

When I think about it [when I think about it]
I realize how many moments there were when my heart trembled
I’ll try as harder as I was late in realizing my feelings
I’ll be with you, I’ll only give you fond memories
Please don’t ever leave me again
Even the shortest moments without you make me uneasy
Please stay by me~

I already love you so much [you’re the only one]

loneliness kills

Dear diary,

It feels weird that I have no single idea on why I feel the way the I feel. I think I am confused over so many things and I don't know what to do. I don't like uncertainties, especially when I am expecting things to happen...or least in the future.

A friend told me about the political situation in Ukraine. There's a tension among the president and the PM parties, both are Viktor :) Hm.. more than 30,000 gathered at Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. Hopefully it's a peaceful act for all. I want to go!

I am still waiting for the letter from the Ukraine. I think I troubled the people there to get me a new official authorised letter. This may take up to two weeks. Please give it to me in time and I hope that's enough for me to get my visa. I really want to go! Ah..I need to do a health check-up :(

Well, whether I will go or not, I am left with many things to do here. I have to start (really really start) packing my 4-yrs accumulated assets in Singapore and move them to my sis' place. Temporary storage place haha. Can anyone 'donate' more boxes to me please? I have no idea how to start packing my things, too many of them and I may use them within these few weeks time too. It's not that easy to pack and leave too yah *sigh...

Yesterday was also my 1st official meeting with my mentees. Three of them, and all girls. So, we're a 4-member family. Han Ling, Lucia and Lan, added up with Diana. So, it's HL2D or DHL2 or H2LD or watever. We talked about the ups and downs on my term, how we can survive and come out stronger than ever, our future dreams, ..., ... and @conferences. We reminisced on our NLDS which-was-successful-in-breaking-the-reservoir-of-tears (Thanks for making my last NLDS a memorable one friends) to my IC in Poland. It reminded me of my study trip to Gdanks, the friends that I met, the sweet things that happened, the ups and downs in a conference, the food, the crying scene (I didn't bring this up, but I remembered clearly about our last day, especially the Closing Ceremony) and many more.

I think I am very lucky to be able to experience IC inPoland in my life. To meet new friends that became a close friends in just a few days time. A friend who looked at you and knew that you're having a hard time, and just by looking at them you know that they do care. A friend who went to you and asked 'Are you ok? You looked sad today'. A friend who went the extra mile to 'make' a cup for you so that you can drink water (and not alcohol ^^). A friend whom you didn't need to talk alot when you're together but you treasure it even more. A friend that greeted you every morning and made sure you got what you need. A friend who was also your secret angel, looking from afar, protecting you. Sorry if I wasn't a good friend at all.

Hm.. I think my mellow mood is playing its game again. Maybe coz I finished Princess Hour (24 episodes) in 3 days, and I like it so much that it takes over more emotions that what is needed. It's sweet, funny, mellow movie that fortunately didn't take much of my tears haha the movie does show that sweet little things matter more.

Realized that my life is too plain after watching this movie. Emotional roller coaster. I like Chaegyung for being the 'sunshine' for everyone, and yet she noticed the loneliness in Shin's eyes. I like Shin for his warm heart and the small little things he did. Geez... Doing many things but having no one to share them, just add another pile of 'burden' inside. I miss sharing them.

I miss the hands that will hold mine.

ps: Sweet dream Diary. Promise you'll be there to share k.
