three wishes - the pierces

We'd be so less fragile
If we're made from metal
And our hearts from iron
And our minds from steel
And if we built an army
Full of tender bodies
Could we love each other
Would we stop to feel

And you only want three wishes:
One to fly the heavens
One to swim like fishes
And then one you're saving for a rainy day
If your lover ever takes her love away

You say you want to know her like a lover
And undo her damage, she'll be new again
Soon you'll find that if you try to save her
It will lose her anger
You will never win

And you only want three wishes:
You want never bitter
And all delicious
And then one you're saving for a rainy day
If your lover ever takes her love away

You only want three wishes:
One to fly the heavens
One to swim like fishes
You want never bitter
And all delicious
And a clean conscience
And all it's blisses
You want one true lover with a thousand kisses
You want soft and gentle and never vicious
And then one you're saving for a rainy day
If your lover ever takes her love away

what is the world coming to?

It scares me that people are willing to do just about anything to get money nowadays. Anything for a lump of cold hard cash.

*shudders*

What happened to lemonade stands, car washes (even that is pushing it, in my opinion) and honest WORK?!

Selling your used underwear, and charging extra for EXTRA SERVICES? That's just disturbing. See link.

And what about the case where the 18-year old auctioned off her VIRGINITY? See link.

WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO?!

If me not getting this way of earning money means I'm old-fashioned or plain conservative I'm fine with that.

More than fine with that.

mollycoddle.

carrie underwood - ever ever after

Storybook endings, fairy tales coming true
Deep down inside we want to believe they still do
And a secret is taught, it's our favourite part of the story
Let's just admit we all want to make it too

Ever ever after
If we just don't get it our own way
Ever ever after
It may only be a wish away

Starting your fashion, wear your heart on your sleeve
Sometimes you reach what's real just by making believe
Unafraid, unashamed
There is joy to be claimed in this world
You even might wind up being glad to be you

Ever ever after
Though the world will tell you it's not smart
Ever ever after

The world can be yours if you let your heart
Believe in ever after

No wonder your heart feels it's flying
Your head feels it's spinning
Each happy ending's a brand new beginning
Let yourself be enchanted, you just might break through

To ever ever after
Forever could even start today
Ever ever after
Maybe it's just one wish away
Your ever ever after
Ever ever ever after


Oh, for ever ever after

holidays

Okay. So that's why my tagboard has been dead, but I honestly didn't realise it has been more than a week since I last blogged!

Got my new adaptor Monday morning even before I got up, thanks to the Dell people who came to my house bright and early to ensure my suffering did not go on for another day. But now my speakers aren't working, oh no! Looks like I'll have to give them another call... No, it's not because I accidentally hit MUTE (No thanks to Chin Yu for even suggesting that) because it works when I plug my earphones in. Currently enjoying my Christmas songs by plugging my earphones in and increasing the volume to its maximum. A temporary solution, but still a solution to last me for the weekend since it is now past 5 on a Friday...
Went to work for 2 days and quit, with permission from my parents. Work was as a promoter for Action City in City Square. I actually enjoyed it, especially the part where I get to play with the interesting items I sell and play with little kids who are easily amused with a mini fan blowing in their faces. Alas, the hours were too long for me to handle, being from 10 am to 10 pm with half an hour for lunch and dinner. By the 2nd day I could no longer stand on the heel of my feet or stand up straight. No kidding. Mum gave permission to quit after she came to fetch me on my first night and was suprised I had to stand the whole time. What kind of job she envisioned me having I have no idea....

It's been a productive 2 days following my resignation from my short-lived job, got to spend half a day with Celine before she left for South Africa and played 2 hours of Wii with Fangi (we completed every dance in the game "Dancing With The Stars"!) AND got 2 books as Xmas presents from my two darlings, although Celine insisted on wrapping the present and only giving it to me on Xmas day itself. That's already 3 books I'm definitely getting (and enjoying) for Christmas, the other being from Weiyi (who has also insisted on wrapping it).

Today was spent comparing prices for hard drives and webcams in a PC fair in Persada convention centre (the existence of which I only knew about today) with Colin and Nick. Walked over to CS for lunch with Fangi and Weiyi, at yet another HongKong style restaurant! Lunch was filled with much stories and jokes about man boobs, as well as camera dropping stunts and picture taking... Split up after lunch, when we 3 girls went shopping and Nick left for (yet another) cruise and Colin went to catch a movie.
*random story today at PC fair* Colin and I are checking out scanners. Nick is off talking to an ex-classmate. Promoter: How about this Canon 4-in-1? It comes with a free cinema card so if as a couple, the 2 of you can get discounts when watching movies. Colin: *turns to me* Eh not bad ah? Go together! Me: *shoves hand in front of her* Go with Nick! Stay away from me! Stay at least 3 feet away from me!!!! Promoter: *realises we aren't a couple and shies away*

Yes Colin, I am still traumatised by it.

Picture time!

Dell charger, anyone?

V. v. annoyed with my laptop right now. Or my charger to be exact, which has decided to not charge. Which results in me not being able to use my laptop since NOONE else in the house has a DELL laptop. Nope. 3 IBMs and 1 Dell, and the Dell charger decides to break down. Hence yours truly was deprived of her laptop for 2 days. 2 DAYS!! Cold turkey much? Finally got it charged today, thank goodness. Still looking for the warranty to get my charger fixed though =(

One good thing from not using my laptop: I'm doing very well on my cross stitch! Stop snickering, people. I actually do girly stuff! Like drooling over hot guys and swooning in cinemas and loving Taiwanese dramas. So yeah, more than halfway done, so I might actually finish this one =)

Still not working yet, since the boss has yet to inform me when I'm to go and start work... Hmmmm.....

It's raining............

A very happy birthday to Wei Yang, I'm a day late but I'm blaming it on my charger, heh. Here's a nice video of the birthday boy being patriotic, enjoy =p

So in love in this song now

You’re in my arms
And all the world is calm
The music playing on for only two
So close together
And when I’m with you
So close to feeling alive

A life goes by
Romantic dreams will stop
So I bid mine goodbye and never knew
So close was waiting, waiting here with you
And now forever I know
All that I wanted to hold you
So close

So close to reaching that famous happy end
Almost believing this was not pretend
And now you’re beside me and look how far we’ve come
So far we are so close

How could I face the faceless days
If I should lose you now?
We’re so close
To reaching that famous happy end
And almost believing this was not pretend
Let’s go on dreaming for we know we are
So close
So close
And still so far

when i need you - air supply

When I need you
Just close my eyes and I'm with you
And all that I so want to give you
It's only a heart beat away

When I need love
I hold out my hands and I touch love
I never knew there was so much love
Keeping me warm night and day

Miles and miles of empty space in between us
A telephone can't take the place of your smile
But you know I wont be traveling for ever
It's cold out, but hold out and do like I do

When I need you
Just close my eyes and I'm with you
And all that I so want to give you babe
It's only a heartbeat away

It's not easy when the road is your driver
Honey, that's a heavy load that we bear
But you know I won't be traveling a lifetime
It's cold out but hold out and do like I do
Oh I need you

When I need you
I hold out my hands and I touch love
I never knew there was so much love
Keeping me warm night and day

When I need you
Just close my eyes and I'm with you
And all that I so want to give you
It's only a heart beat away

holidays!

Finally been doing something with my holidays! Got my results yesterday, which means this is now officially my holidays! And that I'll be a 2nd year come Feb!

Got a job yesterday, have yet to start work though. Working as a sales girl in City Square, hope it goes well, since I have almost no working experience.

First visit to Danga Bay since it was completed way back in Form 4! Thanks to Nick for bring me and Yuan Xiang there... Much much bigger than I thought, and pretty interesting too! Had satay, yum.....

Went out for a movie today with Celine, decided only at 1.45 pm and immediately went to get ready for the 2.30 pm showing of "Enchanted", luckily we both get ready real fast... Movie was awesome, from Giselle's singing to the cute little girl Morgan to "I get blown away by romance" Nancy. Not forgetting the amazing Patrick Dempsey. 2 hours well spent, and was frequently punctuated with much swooning and "OMG, he's so cute/hot/handsome!!" I liked how smooth the transition was from animation to real life, especially the apples part. Great movie, 5 stars from me! (One whole star was for Patrick Dempsey). After that it was to my second home a.k.a. Cel's humble abode. Banana and chocolate chip muffin *drools* and Son Mee for dinner, looks like I'm going to be gaining weight this holidays! At least we did spend some time "exercising" using the Wii.

Tired now, so here's where it ends. But before I leave, here are some videos of the advertisements in the theater today!

Actually didn't want to put this here, but it was too funny not to! Hiro lookalike alert!


Celine and I agreed we would be doing the exact same thing all day if we had this SLR too.


GTA + Coke = an amazing advertisement!



Plus! Some quotes from the movie "Enchanted"

Giselle: Nobody has been very nice to me.
Robert: Yeah, well, welcome to New York.
Giselle: Thank you.

Prince Edward: I seek a beautiful girl.
Sewer Crew Guy: I-I'd like to find one of them too, you know?

Morgan Philip: You know they always say guys only have one thing on their mind.
Giselle: And what’s that?
Morgan Philip: I don't know. No one will tell me.
