all i want for christmas is you - olivia olson

I don't want a lot for Christmas
there is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
underneath the Christmas tree

I just want you for my own
more than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
all I want for Christmas is you

I don't want a lot for Christmas
there is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
underneath the Christmas tree

I don't need to hang my stocking
there upon the fireplace
Santa Claus wont make me happy
with a toy on Christmas day

I just want you for my own
more than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
all I want for Christmas is you

I won't ask for much this Christmas
I wont even wish for snow
I'mjust gonna keep on waiting
underneath the mistletoe

I wont make a list and send it
to the North Pole for Saint Nick
I wont even stay awake
to hear those magic reindeer click

I just want you for my own
more than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
all I want for Christmas is you
You, baby

Oh, all the lights are shining
so brightly everywhere
And the sound of childrens'
laughter fills the air

Everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa wont you bring me
the one I really need
wont you please bring my baby to me

I don't want a lot for Christmas
this is all I'm asking for
I just wanna see my baby
standing right outside my door

Cause I just want you for my own
more than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
all I want for Christmas is you
and you and you and you and you

All I want for Christmas






You're 20 minutes away......and still I can't see you. This Christmas sucks.

check yes juliet - we the kings

Check yes Juliet
Are you with me?
Rain is falling down on the sidewalk
I won't go until you come outside.

Check yes Juliet
Kill the limbo
I'll keep tossing rocks at your window
There's no turning back for us tonight.

Lace up your shoes
Eh Oh Eh Ohhh
Here's how we do:

Run, baby, run
Don't ever look back.
They'll tear us apart
If you give them the chance.
Don't sell your heart.
Don't say we are not meant to be.
Run, baby, run.
Forever we'll be
You and me.

Check yes Juliet
I'll be waiting
Wishing, wanting
Yours for the taking.
Just sneak out
And don't tell a soul goodbye.
Check yes Juliet
Here's the countdown
3... 2... 1... now fall in my arms now
They can change the locks
Don't let them change your mind

Lace up your shoes
Eh Oh Eh Ohhh
Here's how we do

Run, baby, run
Don't ever look back
They'll tear us apart
If you give them the chance
Don't sell your heart
Don't say we are not meant to be
Run baby run
Forever we'll be
You and me

We're flying through the night
We're flying through the night
Way up high,
The view from here is getting better with
You by my side

Run baby run
Don't ever look back
They'll tear us apart
If you give them the chance
Don't sell your heart
Don't say we are not meant to be
Run baby run
Forever we'll be...

Run baby run
Don't ever look back
They'll tear us apart
If you give them the chance
Don't sell your heart
Don't say we are not meant to be
Run baby run
Forever we'll be
You and me
You and me
You and me

baaaaccckkkkk!!

That was the exact message I sent 4 people last night the minute we got back on the bus after going through CIQ, the new Malaysian customs at the Causeway. Finally I can walk around without having 4 layers on *big grin*

pictures will be up soon, as soon as I get them uploaded from my camera and edit them in Picasa. Seeing as I took 638 pictures, it should be a while. Like a month. Was pretty trigger-happy, but not many pictures actually have my family in them seeing as they're all camera-shy or reckon themselves too old to pose in front of a camera anymore. Well, except for my mum posing in front of the coffee shop featured in Coffee Prince.

Missed me anyone?

Nice to see I still only have 2 followers, one of whom is myself. LOL! I love you Sarah Jane.

awesome video!

chuck.bass.



i want to watch today's gossip girl episode. all about chuck bass.


where supposedly ed westwick delivers a performance which will make me bawl like a baby.

where supposedly blair might say the three words everyone has been waiting to hear.

where chuck looks like edward, which makes him all the more perfect.

still awake now at 2.47 am deciding whether i should stream the episode now and watch it. which would mean me sleeping at 5 or 6 am.

i NEED to watch it.

chuck bass is my kind of drug.

thigns to do

suggestions anyone? am so bored for the holidays that i'm coming up with a list of hobbies/ things to try out these holidays in case i can't get the job i want (pharmacy job). so far on my list:
a. finish cross-stitching xinwei's replacement pillowcase since mum finds his old one to be too....well, old.
b. finish watching FULL HOUSE, though this has proven to be difficult since the DVD mum bought (original, mind you) only comes with chinese subtitles. i read them so slowly i have to pause at each frame so i understand what is going on when they're arguing. only up to episode 2 and a half.
c. complete christmas shopping. so far i have gotten presents for noone. this has to be done before i leave for korea, since i would only have 3 days after coming back. not to mention i have to hand cel her present before i leave since i won't be seeing her till after christmas.

I Think I - Byul




I Think I (English Version) from http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/b/byul/i_think_i_english_version.html

I refused to believe that it could be so,
There's no way that I'm in love with you,
I lied to myself that it's just a petty jealousy,
That I must be feeling lonely, but I cannot hide it anymore.

I think I love you
But it must be so, cause I miss you
Without you,
I cannot do anything,
And you are always on my mind,
So seeing this, it must be,
I was unaware,
But now I can see that
Your presence have delved deeply into my heart.

We are not meant for each other, and being friends is the best thing for us,
There isn't a single thing we have in common,
So I claimed there's no way we can be lovers,
But I don't want to make excuses anymore.

I think I love you
But it must be so, cause I miss you
Without you,
I cannot do anything,
And you are always on my mind,
So seeing this, it must be,
I was unaware,
But now I can see that
Your presence have delved deeply into my heart.

Why didn't I know that it was you,
Why couldn't I see it when it was right in front of me,
It was beside me all along,
But only now can I see love.

I think I love you
But it must be so, cause I miss you
Without you,
I cannot do anything,
And you are always on my mind,
So seeing this, it must be,
I was unaware,
But now I can see that
Your presence have delved deeply into my heart.

you know...

you know you've been eating too much when your brother who's barely a year younger than you are and 15 cm taller is lighter than you are.

no more late night suppers for yours truly.

feeling of the day

feeling..............self conscious today. stalking people on facebook and blogs isnt generally healthy, especially when you go through photo albums of people you used to know a long long long time ago and find that they've changed so much while you feel like the same girl you were in school.

seeing my old classmates/ schoolmates always makes me go back to how i felt back in school. nerdy. unapproachable. trying too hard to be popular.

ugh.

not to mention while going through their g.l.a.m.o.r.o.u.s. pictures i was doing nerdy things like playing geo challenge and biggest brain thingy on facebook. and youtube-ing videos of armadillo run. while watching star wars with my brother.

oh.my.god.

will i never be cool???!

Taken off Sarah Jane's blog since I was blog surfing.

1. Do you have secrets?
Can anyone honestly say they don't have any?!

2. Would you fall in love with a boy/girl younger than you?
I don't think we get to decide who we fall in love with. Having a brother a year younger tends to kill all possibility since even meeting a person younger than I am reminds me of my brother. Hmmm.

3. What would you do with a billion dollar?
Give half to my mother for safekeeping, donate some to charity, give my brothers a big allowance and buy lots of stuff for myself of course :)

4. Do you enjoy going to college?
Most of the time, except when it's a 8.30 class.

5. Will you fall in love with your best friend?
I don't get to decide that now do I? I don't mind though. (watch out cel and fang!)

Definitely the latter.

Cry. Emo. Cry. Pray he gets unattached. Cry. Bitch about his gf to my friends. Cry.

9. List 5 favourite TV shows...
♥ gossip girl
♥ house
♥ CSI
♥ the tudors
mythbusters

10. Do you have any regrets?
Some. A good amount for my age I think.

Married with 2 kids who aren't annoying and a husband I am still in love with, yet remaining independent.

My mother. Hands down.

13. What kind of person do you think the person that tagged you is?
An awesome person who is always cheerful and makes the best birthday cards ever!

15. What is your favourite color?
Currently I would say red.

16. Would you give all in a relationship?
I think so.

the switch

I've been back in JB for a happy 5 days now, and i'm pleased to announce I have not gotten annoyed at my mum yet. YAY!! Would love to include Kit on the list but he got on my nerves about 12 hours into me coming home. As usual.

The title refers to my feelings about being home... Seems like once the plane reached Singaporean soil this switch in my mind and heart just went off, turning off all my feelings for my home and life in Melbourne, immediately switching me back to the small-town girl I am whenever I'm surrounded by family. I always anticipate being home in JB, hoping to dazzle my family with my extremely interesting life in Melbourne, especially my two brothers, who have yet to travel overseas for their studies. Yet, upon reaching home and seeing my family for the first time in 10 months, I revert to the girl I was 3 years ago, as if I've never left... I assimilate back just like I've never been away, as if all this while my life consisted of me sleeping in, enjoying lunch with my mum and joking away with her, then heading out with Fangi and Celine to do aimless shopping in PP or CS. Things feel different...and yet the same. Does this happen to everyone I wonder...

Xinwei, my genius of a brother, has been offered 2 interviews for his application for medicine in UK, by UCL and King's, so this is the 2nd time that I won't be spending CNY in KL out of 19 years. Of course, I'm immensely proud of my brother, but it does leave me slightly sad and melancholic thinking about how I probably won't be seeing him for the next 4 years, with me only returning at the end of the year for summer and him being home in the middle of the year... Which is why I'm determined to make the most of my summer this year with my family and enjoy our family trip, since it might be the last for a while. 1.5 million to study medicine in UK after all!

This trip back has certainly left me thinking and wondering about a lot of things. Seeing my mum after 10 months, it shocked me how much she's aged, which left me really sad thinking about how I used to argue with her and make her worry about me, and even now in Melbourne how I sometimes become all monotonous answering her questions when she calls me up to talk to me just because I feel like she's calling at the wrong time and disturbing me, in a sense. Seeing my brothers all grown up... I can't believe how much has changed in such a short period of time! Wei is still having the same group of friends, but he is so much more sociable now, and much more generous with his words, making jokes and being all witty and sarcastic, and making me laugh till I cried impersonating Russell Peters!! Kit's different too, not just with him hitting puberty and going through all the changes a boy does, but he has friends too, and juniors looking up to him. Have yet to see my dad, chances are I'll have the same sort of epiphany upon seeing him. Thinking about all this now while I'm typing this post makes me want to cry. WOW. Hormone overload.

I'm really going to miss this part of my life, as I know things would definitely be wayy different the next time I come back.

Going to stop now, am getting wayyy too sappy. Hope Dad's too busy preparing to come back to read this. Actually, I hope everyone got too bored and stopped reading. So embarassing.

fouteen? fourteen?

Anyone who has realised that I've been pronouncing 14 as FOU-teen all this time..... I have realised how I came to pronouncing it that way.

My mother.
