bleeding love - leona lewis

Closed off from love
I didn’t need the pain
Once or twice was enough
And it was all in vain
Time starts to pass
Before you know it you’re frozen

But something happened
For the very first time with you
My heart melts into the ground
Found something true
And everyone’s looking round
Thinking I’m going crazy

But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

Trying hard not to hear
But they talk so loud
Their piercing sounds fill my ears
Try to fill me with doubt
Yet I know that the goal
Is to keep me from falling

But nothing’s greater
Than the rush that comes with your embrace
And in this world of loneliness
I see your face
Yet everyone around me
Thinks that I’m going crazy, maybe, maybe

But I don’t care what they say

I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I....

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

And it’s draining all of me
Oh they find it hard to believe
I’ll be wearing these scars
For everyone to see

I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I....

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I....

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love

Is It You - Cassie

I'm looking for a lover not a friend
Somebody who can be there when I need someone to talk to
I'm looking for someone who won't pretend
Somebody not afraid to say the way they feel about you

And I'm looking for someone who understands how I feel,
Someone who can keep me real and who knows
The way I like to have it my way
And I'm looking for someone who takes me there,
Wants to share, shows he cares
Thinking you're the one that I've been waiting for

Is it you? is it you?
Maybe you're the one I've been waiting for
Could you be the one for me?
Could you be the one I need?

Is it you? is it you?
Maybe you're the one I've been waiting for
Could you be the one for me?
Could you be the one I need?

I'm looking for someone to share my pain
Someone who I can run to, who would stay with me when it rains
Someone who I can cry with through the night
Someone who I can trust whose heart is right
And I'm looking for someone

And I'm looking for someone who understands how I feel,
Someone who can keep me real and who knows

The way I like to have it my way
And I'm looking for someone who takes me there,
Wants to share, shows he cares
Thinking on the one that I've been waiting for

Is it you? is it you?
Maybe you're the one I've been waiting for
Could you be the one for me?
Could you be the one I need?

Is it you? is it you?
Maybe you're the one I've been waiting for
Could you be the one for me?
Could you be this one I need?

Someone who won't take me for granted
How much I care
And appreciates that I'm there
Someone who listens
And someone I can call who isn't afraid of love to share

Is it you? is it you?
Maybe you're the one I've been waiting for
Could you be the one for me?
Could you be the one I need?

Is it you? is it you?
Maybe you're the one I've been waiting for
Could you be the one for me?
Could you be the one I need?

easter holidays

After a month of suffering, the Easter break arrived =) Though this means I'll be break-less for the next 9 weeks. But I'll worry about that later. Finally did something this Easter other than bumming around like last year. Went to Philip Island yesterday to see the penguins! It was a day trip, so we got to visit a wildlife park and feed some very greedy kangaroos and wallabies too!

Trip to Philip Island (see the full album on Facebook)

Me and Luke feeding the joeys

The beach we stopped by
Tasmanian Devil!
Close up of the joeys eating. Note how they grab the bowl so I won't take it away.
Luke, Han and KK
Decided to head down to the city today and make full use of my Sunday Saver. Wanted to go shopping, since I haven't done so since coming back to Melbourne, but EVERYTHING was closed. Bourke Street Mall. QV. Melbourne Central. Even DFO! Argh! Ended up spending my afternoon in Queen Victoria Market, buying fruits and prawns, then walking around the "tourist-y" part of the market and browsing through clothes and soft toys. Kinda like a less noisy and drier version of pasar malam!
Here are some pictures I took of the graffiti found in Union Lane in the city. The whole alley is covered with graffiti, which makes the dowdy alley look so colourful! Still stinks of pee though....





Went for karaoke on Thursday, which was our last day of classes before Good Friday and the holidays started. 4 hours of singing can put you off songs for a while, especially when you have guys like Boom, Gary and Liwen singing along to songs like Baby One More Time and Bohemian Rhapsody. Had to miss Jeremy's housewarming for that, so a big SORRY to Jeremy! And JacKee, who was there waiting for me to accompany her...

More adventures to blog about soon! Might be going on a road trip to Mornington Peninsula!

general update

I have come to realise that I hate uncertainty. A whole lot. That feeling of not knowing where you stand, not knowing whether you can trust a person, that overwhelming feeling that things are out of your control and you can't do anything but watch as things happen to you and those around you and yet do nothing except try to will it to go your way. Which does not work.

On a lighter note, it's 4 days to Easter break. Oh thank whoever decided to come up with a week long break for a holiday we come to identify with rabbits and chocolate. Lots of studies to catch up on! Just an hour ago I had freshers ask me how i managed to cope with studies and everything else i did, and i couldn't think of a reply! i honestly have no idea how i actually managed to do that. must be Mum's good genes! (Dad's DEFINITELY going to call and complain about this now).

Woke up with a sore throat 3 days ago, which lead on to a fever, then a blocked nose and I'm on the road to recovery! Overcome with nothing more than lots of water, a few lozenges and a mind focused on how i don't have time to be ill. Made me realise how much we depend on doctors back at home. Runny nose? To the doctors! Fever? The doctor it is! Although this might have something to do with Mum not wanting me to infect the whole household (I end up doing this each and every time anyway).

Baked muffins yesterday! Tested out the oven here by making chocolate chip and banana muffins, recipe courtesy of Celine and Kak Yati. It turned out well! A little on the dry side, but it received several thumbs up! YAY! I'll post pictures when I upload them from my camera.

Weather here is getting close to being unbearable, with hot wind-less days with maximum temperatures of 39 degrees. Really can't stand slathering on sunscreen everytime I'm headed out. Where's autumn?!

an update before i'm too busy to do so

I now realise signing up for all those things back in Semester 2 last year wasn't the smartest thing I've done.
At this present moment I am:

a. preparing for GM as secretary of Student Club (I'm using recycled paper!)

b. handling Front of House duties for National Night (which is the day before GM)

c. managing ticketing for Fall Ball (which is still a distance away, thank god)

d. doing Level 1 self-help in the kitchen on Saturday
e. into my 3rd week of uni, which means practicals and tutorials have started, as well as assignments and tests. Grrrrr.


Yeah, I wasn't thinking straight back then. It doesn't help that I'm addicted to the board game Catan. Because I'm much too busy to explain it, you're just going to have to Wiki it. Went for Moomba festival on Saturday and Sunday. Once to watch the fireworks, and another time in the sweltering heat to watch the Bingle Birdman Rally, where people in atrocious costumes and "flying contraptions" launch themselves into the water (Yarra River in this case). Met up with Celine and Bako (affectionally called Baks from now on) on both occasions, and brought them for Greek food! Yum..... Despite all the work I'm feeling pretty happy today, coz I managed to answer all my tutorial questions correctly, and teach my friends. Plus I went window shopping (without the window) in Kmart for an hour to enjoy the air-con. =)

krista's birthday + commencement dinner

Krista's Birthday - La Porchetta

First visit to La Porchetta after hearing so much about it from my aunt and my two pasta-loving cousins. Finally got to try cannelloni filled with ricotta and spinach, which I have been craving for since watching Jamie Oliver prepare it on Astro back in Malaysia, when i was binging on the food channel about 13 hours a day.

Birthday Girl Krista and her boy Boom
Luke, KK, Su, Vic and Brit. On the way to Lygon for gelati.
Forming my name!

Commencement Dinner

My 2nd Commencement Dinner in IH! Came back from practical in uni around 3.00 pm, thought I was going to take a nice long bath and have plenty of time to get ready for dinner. Decided to help Mikhaila out since she was folding napkins all alone. Ended up helping to set up the dining hall for dinner for the next 3 hours, leaving me with 15 minutes to get ready for dinner. Oh well, less one self help for this semester I guess.

Me and Su
The Pharmacy gang of IH!

happily never after - nicole scherzinger

"I don't think I want this anymore,"
As she drops the ring to the floor.
She says to herself, "You've left before,"
"This time you will stay gone, that's for sure."

And he shattered something else
To drag her suitcase down the path,
To the driveway.
She had never gone that far.

Normally this would be
the time that she
would let him talk her out of leaving,
But this time, without crying,
as she got into her car, she said,


"No
'Happily Never After'
That just ain't for me.
Because finally,
I know
I deserve better, after all
I'll never let another teardrop fall."

As she drove away she starts to smile,
Realized she hadn't for a while.
No destination, she drove for miles
Wondering why she stayed in such denial.

She was laughing about the way he shattered something else
To drag her suitcase down the path,
to the driveway
she had never gone that far
Normally this would be, the time that she
would let him talk her out of leaving, but this time, without crying,
as she got into her car, she said,


"No
'Happily Never After'
That just ain't for me
Because finally,
I know I deserve better
After all
I'll never let another teardrop fall."

I'm done, I'm done, said I'm so done
I'm free, I'm free, so free
Free to feel the way I feel, yeah.

She inhales a breath she'd never breathed before
Don't want no drama no more.

'Cause she says
"No
'Happily Never After'
That just ain't for me"


"I know
I deserve, better after all
I know I'll never let another teardrop fall"

"No
'Happily Never After'
That just ain't for me
because finally,
I know I deserve better, after all
I'll never let another teardrop fall"


Said I'm done, I'm done, I'm done

lips of an angel - hinder

Honey why you calling me so late?
It's kinda hard to talk right now.
Honey why are you crying? Is everything okay?
I gotta whisper 'cause I can't be too loud

Well, my girl's in the next room
Sometimes I wish she was you
I guess we never really moved on
It's really good to hear your voice say my name
It sounds so sweet
Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak

And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

It's funny that you're calling me tonight
And, yes, I've dreamt of you too
And does he know you're talking to me
Will it start a fight
No I don't think she has a clue

Well my girl's in the next room
Sometimes I wish she was you
I guess we never really moved on
It's really good to hear your voice say my name
It sounds so sweet
Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak

And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

It's really good to hear your voice say my name
It sounds so sweet
Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak

And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

Honey why you calling me so late?
