bad day - daniel powter

Where is the moment we needed the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue skies fade to grey
They tell me your passion's gone away
And I don't need no carryin' on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You're faking a smile with the coffee to go
You tell me your life's been way off line
You're falling to pieces everytime
And I don't need no carryin' on

Cause you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Well you need a blue sky holiday
The point is they laugh at what you say
And I don't need no carryin' on

You had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day

(Oh.. Holiday..)

Sometimes the system goes on the blink
And the whole thing turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know
That you could be well oh that strong
And I'm not wrong

So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

Cause you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
You've seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Thanks DADDY!

Pre Birthday Dinner!

So happy! Just had a wonderful dinner at Conservatory in Crown Towers, buffet dinner overlooking Yarra River!

Got to see the fire "performance" along Yarra River!

CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ashley and Edmund had a BOWL each, lol!

Most importantly we met up with my aunt's godson KK and his friend Steven, so...

I GOT PRESENTS!

Heee, I love my aunties! Koo Mah, Koo Che, Aunt Selina and Aunt Beng Gnoh! All the way from KL! Oh, and Mom for packing up the stuff I wanted, like my autographs book from last year and my marker pens...

All the stuff I got!

Love Love Love

Sometimes I see couples on the road being so happy and in their own little world, and my heart yearns for that intimacy with someone. The feeling like you could just stay that way together, hands joined, your head on his shoulder, watching the world go by...

Then I think about what it takes to be in a relationship. Not as easy as just loving that person. You have to consider him in so many things that you do. It's not that simple. You can't just tell yourself "I want to spend my life with him" and expect it to happen.

I want to fall in love. But I don't want to.

I'm a sad confused little girl.



I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
But I'm just drunk enough to let go of my pain
To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
From my eyes
Tonight I wanna cry
-Keith Urban-

Emo Songs Are My Favourite

In my xiao ge ge Jeremy's apartment now blogging. Will be posting pictures of Kush's birthday party later. Yes. Later. It's a very subjective word. Have got to do my essay first.

*Xin runs around screaming blody murder while pulling her hair out*

Now, where were we?

Right.

Uropa apartments are so nice. Living room is huge! Or maybe it's just empty. But still, there's actually place for you to move about. Now I know why Kush, Wii, JS and Jeremy were so unimpressed by my room.

If you don't know who they are......wait for the pictures, lol!

Sleeeeeepppyyyyy......

Playing emo songs on xiao ge ge's laptop now. Hehe, we love to emo!

What I've Been Up To

God I miss the Singaporean channels I used to watch back at home. Channel 5, Channel 8! Tay Ping Hui! Qi Yu Wu! Felicia Chin! Jesseca Liu! Elvin Ng! Edmund Chen! Miss them all...

So desperate am I that I actually went to Youtube videos to watch:


Qi Yu Wu!!

Mom's getting the hang of using the internet now, yay! She checks my blog regularly, ONLY my blog, so don't worry people. Plus, she can IM me nowadays without my brothers helping!
Next: making her own blog, lol!
(You have to click on the picture to see the conversation, sorry!)



I miss my Mummy :(

Outside My Door.

Outside my door, I hear noises.

Someone's unhappy with her friends for leaving her behind.

1 guy, 2 girls.

1 girl, 2 guys.

It's never smooth-sailing.

Wonderful Quotes

IH fresher, drunk: Guys, I can't feel my balls, is that normal?

Yet another, also drunk: Can you call me back tomorrow when I'm sober? Bye MOM.


Friend from Pharmacy: There are 3 '-tions' to girls. First is COLLECTION, then SELECTION followed by RECEPTION.

Another from Pharmacy: I'll bring you to Hungry Jacks, 4.95 meal. Has a burger, fries, coke and ice cream, very WHOLESOME. (Spoken like a true university student)

Most common question posed to me at Monash (by the same 4 guys everyday): Where's your girlfriend?


There she is!

ROFLMFAO!

Operator, The Line Is Dead

Operator, The Line Is Dead by Jason Lo (Malaysian!)

I guess I never wanted this
Another 'ever after' kiss
Operator, the line is dead
Oh no, it's only me and all the walls inside my head

And for the record, I was lost
With only one road I could not cross
And that's the road that takes me here
Oh no, not again
This is where it started

I need you, I'm for you
You threw me, I caught you
Don't leave me and say that you want
to find a way back
Believe me, I followed all you said
Operator, the line is dead

How come you never look away?
Everybody bought but I paid
You're not the one who left me here
Oh no, that was me and all the things I wanted

But now I find you different
You broke up all the walls in my head
Please don't go, let me

Need you, I want you
You know that I found you
Don't leave me and say that you want to find a way back
Believe me, I followed all you said
Operator, the line is dead

Beach FUN!

Went to the beach to distress today, Victoria, Krista, Boom, Han, Ian, KK, Wen Ting and me, hee! Pictures will be up soon!

2 essays due early May, gonna be stressed again. Plus have got training for waiting for Cafe night! Will be a proper waitress at the end of this event, hopefully!

All work and no play makes Jack Jeremy a dull sleepy boy!


Rock-a-bye baby, on the tree top


When the wind blows, the cradle will rock


When the bough breaks the cradle will fall


And down will come baby, cradle and all.


OMG, this nursery rhyme is so sadistic! Falling babies and all...

Answers to the Test

Posting up the answers so everyone can see what's wrong and what's right... *muacks* to everyone who got above 50! Jeremy's score of 100 doesn't count, coz it was a retest, AND he did it with JinSern who also completed it once before already!

Question #1
I have an irrational fear of....
Clowns
Heights
Flying cockroaches
All of the above Correct!
XinYu answered D, the correct answer was D

Erm, most people should be able to get this right, although quite a lot put Heights... Yes, I have many many fears... Apart from this, I have a fear of speaking in front of a crowd, fear of the dark, fear of being lonely...

Question #2
My name in Chinese means
New Fish
Kind, Precious Jade Correct!
Meteor Rain
Heart Rain
XinYu answered B, the correct answer was B

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Okay, the non-Chinese educated ones might not know this... LUKE LIM MING YUAN!!! You know Chinese and you got it wrong! What parents will name their daughter 'New Fish'????? Yes, I have the same surname as Jay Chou. Have a cousin called Jay too!


Question #3
Select the INCORRECT statement
I eat vegetables that don't look like vegetables
I cry in my sleep
I find it hard to fall asleep when on long distance journeys Correct!
I named myself Nicole after my favourite actress Nicole Kidman
XinYu answered C, the correct answer was C

Yes, I only eat non-leafy veggies, such as eggplant, okra, cucumber and long beans. I do cry in my sleep, non often though, but don't remember why. I fall asleep VERY EASILY, suprisingly MY BROTHER doesn't get it right. And I did name myself after Nicole Kidman, mom preferred Natalie after Natalie Portman, if I remember correctly!

Question #4
My favourite swear word/phrase (at myself)
Oh my bloody fucking God! Correct!
Fuck!
Oh my God!
Shit!
XinYu answered A, the correct answer was A

Okay, most people put 'Fuck!' as they hear me use it most often, but that's coz there's no time to say the whole phrase, and it's my FAVOURITE phrase, not what I use most often, hehe

Question #5
These are my darkest secrets except...
I would actually prefer to just get married and not work. Really.
I love sappy stories, the sadder the better.
I\'ve always wanted to be a celebrity. Maybe for writing a book. Correct!
I love eating Milo. Yes, eat, not drink. Lots of Milo + a bit of water
XinYu answered C, the correct answer was C

Yup, I really would prefer not working, but like Mom says "Why are we paying so much for your education then?!"
Sappy stories, especially on love, I love! I am a romantic!
Stage fright = hating being in unfamiliar crowds = not wanting to be famous
Eating Milo is wonderful!!! Try it! Mom can attest to this weird habit of mine, she was always screaming at me coz it's really hard to wash the cup after that, hehe.... Ven got it wrong also, wth? You were the one always making my Milo in the morning last year so I wouldn't be eating it!

Question #6
Which soccer team do I support?
Arsenal
Chelsea Correct!
Manchester United
Liverpool
XinYu answered B, the correct answer was B

Yup, Chelsea fan here! Chelsea, then Liverpool, then Arsenal. After that "every other team except Man U" like Luke said. Sorry Ven.

Question #7
I have had ____ crushes (2003 - 2006) BF\'s not included
4
5 Correct!
6
7
XinYu answered B, the correct answer was B

Ehem, not going to name them, so just trust me on this. Almost all my BFFs got this right, yay!

Question #8
My favourite science subject
Chemistry Correct!
Biology
Physics
None! Bleh, who likes science?
XinYu answered A, the correct answer was A

It's odd I know, but I love Chemistry. No, this does not necessarily mean I'm good at it though. Don't mind Biology, but can't stand Physics, just never really got the hang of it...

Question #9
It\'s a rainy day, my favourite activity will be ...
to be playing board games with my brothers
Singing in the rain
to curl up on my bed with a hot cup of Milo and reading a book Correct!
Sleeping
XinYu answered C, the correct answer was C

Playing board games with brothers = Kit making a big fuss when he loses.
Singing in the rain. Would love it, but Mom will kill me.
Sleeping. True, but favourite is still reading on my bed with my lovely Milo...

Question #10
Piss me off and the best thing to do is...
Commit suicide
Pray for divine intervention
Buy me everything I want
Keep away until I cool down, then apologising Correct!
XinYu answered D, the correct answer was D

First 2 were just for fun, and I don't expect people to try and appease me by buying me stuff, so the last one is correct. Everyone got this right, yay! I calm down pretty quickly, so not to worry!

There we go. Wasn't that hard was it? Vong says "You have to know, the world doesn't revolve around you"

IN THIS TEST IT DOES!

Almost Over You by Sheena Easton (from Meteor Garden!)
I saw an old friend of ours today
She asked about you, I didn't quite know what to say
Heard you've been making your rounds 'round here
While I've been trying to make tears disappear

Now I'm almost over you, I've almost shook these blues
So when you come back around after painting the town
You'll see I'm almost over you

You're such a sly one with your cold, cold heart
Maybe leavin' came easy, but it tore me apart
Time heals all wounds they say and I should know
'Cause it seems like forever, but I'm lettin' you go

Now I'm almost over you, I've almost shook these blues
So when you come back around after painting the town
You'll see I'm almost over you

I can forgive you and soon I'll forget all my shattered dreams
Although you left me with nothing to show, full of misery

Now I'm almost over you, I've almost shook these blues
So when you come back around after painting the town
You'll see I'm almost over you

When you come back around after painting the town
You'll see I'm almost over you

Class Class Class

Back to class today. Lectures were boring as usual, but made more bearable because I made lots of friends today! Okay, so I already knew them, but today I got to talk to them more (during class, but that's not the point) and know them just a bit better... Poor me don't have many friends in Monash (due to spending too much time on activities in IH and choosing IH orientation over Monash) so today was a good day for me, hehe!

One week passed so quickly! NOOOOOOOO!!! Must have been shortchanged somewhere, maybe someone's been making the clock go faster! Back to class = waking up early + falling asleep in lectures + studying for tests + doing assignments + double practicals on Wednesday + Self help resumes!!!!

Sigh.

Physiology test on Friday, at 8.30 am. Yikes. Have IH Fall Ball on Thursday. Double yikes. Assignment due Friday. Triple yikes!!!

Gotten my dress for ball already, hee! Mom got Uncle Howe Run (aka Daddy's boss in Singapore) to bring it over, had to collect it from Crown Promenade Hotel, so I didn't have to waste money buying another dress. Money was then used to go shopping with Jac Kee, yay! 100 bucks on a pair of Hugo Boss sunnies, another 100 spent on clothes and accesories... No more shopping anytime soon for me now...

QUOTE OF THE DAY!
Me: You know Zhou Yu from The Romance of Three Kingdoms? My name is like his, but I've 'san' in the middle, that means kind.
Person who shall remain anonymous: OMG! You're, like, having a guy's name! But you're kind in the middle!

What?????

You Don't Love Me Anymore - Weird Al Yankovic

We've been together for so very long
But now things are changing, oh I wonder what's wrong?
Seems you don't want me around
The passion is gone and the flame's died down

I guess I lost a little bit of self-esteem
That time that you made it with the whole hockey team
You used to think I was nice
Now you tell all your friends that I'm the Antichrist

Oh, why did you disconnect the brakes on my car?
That kind of thing is hard to ignore
Got a funny feeling you don't love me anymore

I knew that we were having problems when
You put those piranhas in my bathtub again
You're still the light of my life
Oh darling, I'm beggin', won't you put down that knife?

You know I, even think it's kinda cute the way
You poison my coffee just a little each day
I still remember the way that you laughed
When you pushed me down the elevator shaft

Oh, if you don't mind me asking, what's this poisonous cobra
Doing in my underwear drawer?
Sometime I get to thinking you don't love me anymore

You slammed my face down on the barbecue grill
Now my scars are all healing, but my heart never will
You set my house on fire
You pulled out my chest hairs with an old pair of pliers

Oh, you think I'm ugly and you say I'm cheap
You shaved off my eyebrows while I was asleep
You drilled a hole in my head
Then you dumped me in a drainage ditch and left me for dead

Oh, you know this really isn't like you at all
You never acted this way before
Honey, something tells me you don't love me anymore, oh no no
Got a funny feeling you don't love me anymore

So Far So Good

Okay, yours truly has come to realize that she hasn't been posting much about her life, so here's something for you while I attempt to procrastinate doing my assignment...

Easter break for now. No fantastic activities for me, but thanks to all my friends here in IH who didn't go anywhere, every single day of this well-deserved break has been eventful and interesting... This is how life should be, good friends, good times, good food (Krispy Kreme anyone?) I'm not the kind who needs much excitement in my life, just a good movie and a filling dinner with friends is enough to make me feel content for the day... Fun in a mundane sort of way I guess... Friends are definitely the most important in making my days fun, I don't mind staying in the whole day just to chat with a few good friends, sharing experiences, making jokes, teasing each other, even talking nonsense... So far some of the things we've done: Watched Hot Fuzz and 300, went bowling, had KK's turning legal party, played Dynasty Warriors on PS 2 (thanks tutor Kenneth!) and gone out for meals countless times... And tons of chatting, even through the night, at least until I conk out.

Wish everything could just stay this way....

P.S. Mom has requested pictures of my friends so she actually knows who I'm talking about when I'm on the phone with her every Saturday... Geez mom, after 2 months, NOW you ask... (just kidding!!) Will be posting pictures soon!


My Bloody Valentine by Good Charlotte
(thanks Ian for getting it stuck in my head)

Oh, my love, please don't cry
I'll wash my bloody hands and we'll start a new life

I ripped out his throat
And called you on the telephone
To take off my disguise

Just in time to hear you cry

When you mourn the death of your bloody valentine
The night he died
You mourned the death of your bloody valentine
One last time

Singing...

Oh my love please don't cry
I'll wash my bloody hands

And we'll start a new life
I don't know much at all,
I don't know wrong from right

All I know is that I love you tonight

There was...
Police and flashing lights
The rain came down so hard that night and the
Headlines read a lover died
No tell-tale heart was left to find

When you mourn the death of your bloody valentine
The night he died
You mourned the death of your bloody valentine
One last time

Singing...

Oh my love please don't cry
I'll wash my bloody hands

And we'll start a new life
I don't know much at all,
I don't know wrong from right

All I know is that I love you tonight

Tonight...

He dropped you off I followed him home
Then I stood outside his bedroom window
Standing over him he begged me not to do
What I knew I had to do cause I'm so in love with you

Oh my love please don't cry
I'll wash my bloody hands

And we'll start a new life
I don't know much at all,
I don't know wrong from right

All I know is that I love you tonight

Tonight...

Romantic in an extremely twisted sense. Guys, don't try this.

Let this be my present to you...

8th April.

EXACTLY one month before my birthday.

This boy turned 18.



Looking at the 2 of us, people find it hard to believe we only got to know each other this year. 17th of February to be exact, on the day I moved into International House. The process of us being such close friends was probably greatly accelerated by the fact that we were both from Taylors (as with Luke and a whole big bunch, but it's not their story), we both knew Nicholas (Nicky Boi!!!) and because he stole my vegetables 5 hours into knowing me.

Room 001. Where I hung out most of the time, watching Bleach anime or eating his food, or simply confiding in him. Ext. 301. Definitely the number I call most frequently, when I'm lonely and just need someone to talk to. Which is quite often, I'm a very confused girl.

Friend. Confidante. Many thanks for all the times you had to listen to me rant or complain or when I was simply feeling down and needed to tell someone what was on my mind. Don't think many people would have readily sacrificed so much of their time listening to me when I was depressed, especially with a test the very next day. And even less would have paid attention for the girl sitting in a corner when they can be having fun at the party going on. Their own birthday party. But you did, even if you couldn't walk in a straight line. Thank you. I hope I have been as good a friend to you as you have been to me.

Happy birthday Kok Keong. May all your wishes come true, and have a great year ahead.

Sad but Happy (I'm contradictory, sue me)

All my bookmarks got deleted *sobs* What the hell, now I have to find all the bookmarks again...

Holidays coming in 6 hours, heeeeee.... Do have work during the holidays, but at least no waking up at unearthly hours just to go to class and fall asleep as the lecturer drones on about muscles or membranes or biochemistry, since it's always Physiology that's forcing me out of bed...

5th week of self help done! 4 more weeks to go, more than halfway there! 5 weeks * 3 hours * 14 bucks = 210 dollars! 210 * 2.7 = 567 Ringgit, woohoo! Not like I'll wait till I go back in December to spend it though, 60 dollars is going to me IH Ball ticket (raffle tickets anyone?) and some money's going into shopping, which I DEFINITELY plan to do during the holidays, gotta buy a dress for ball ;)

Got my presentation over and done with yesterday... 4.25 over 5, not too bad for a person with extreme stage fright! Many thanks to Ian for editing my speech for me, Vong and KK for listening to me grumble and whine about the speech, Edwin for letting me practise in front of him (actually he forced me to present it in front of him, but nevermind) and everyone else who gave me their 'good lucks'. Hopefully no more presentations till next year...

Physiology quiz today, 20 minute test, 25 MCQ questions on Membranes, gotta go study now!

By the way,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CELINE! *muacks*

My lovely angel's 19 today, and growing lovelier everyday! Have a great day, babe!

Tuesday, April 03, 2007

Sometimes I feel so lost.

There are people who would want to help.

But I just can't open myself to them.

Because it'll mean showing them I'm weak.

I just can't stand it tonight.

Help me.

I'm waiting for the knock on my door.

Welcome to my world.

I know it's chaotic.

But I'll bring you around, show you the sights.

I'm used to it.

Monday, April 02, 2007

It's not that I have nothing to say.

So many things to say, but I can't.

So many things to explain, but I don't know how to.

So many questions to ask, but I don't have the courage to.

So many things running in my head.

And noone shall ever know...

Sunday, April 01, 2007

There's no way anyone can really know me.

Because I don't even know myself.
