Rhythm of the song is great..soothing..the lyrics are meaningful..about how we won't appreciate the good things in life w/o experiencing the bad stuff..Life comes full circle..strongly believe in that!
Just wanna share the lyrics with you guys..Singingfish is no longer in existence..So i dunno how the heck i can get more mp3 files to be on my playlist..Will update the list once i find out how!

It takes a crane to build a crane
It takes two floors to make a story
It takes an egg to make a hen
It takes a hen to make an egg
There is no end to what I'm saying
It takes a thought to make a word
And it takes a word to make an action
It takes some work to make it work

It takes some good to make it hurt
It takes some bad for satisfaction
La la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life is full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Al la la la la

It takes a night to make it dawn
And it takes a day to you yawn brother
It takes some old to make you young
It takes some cold to know the sun
It takes the one to have the other
It takes no time to fall in love
But it takes you years to know what love is

It takes some tears to make you trust
It takes some years to make it rust
It takes some dust to make it polished
Ha la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life is full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is so full of
Ah la la la la la la life is so rough
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life is full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is our love
Ah la la la la la

It takes some silence to make sound
It takes a loss before you found it
It takes a road to go nowhere
It takes a toll to know you care
It takes a hole to make a mountain

Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life is full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is oh love
Ah la la la la la la love is all sorts of
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life is full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is holla holla
Ah la la la la la la next up bushwalla-walla
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la

So a good friend intro-ed me to K-dramas..Little did I know what the heck i was getting myself into..

I was looking at 2 5-plus all nighters and 3 am nights..Didn't know it'll get me all addicted to it..

Anyhow, the shows are real funny and cute la..how not to laugh and resist the charms of the actors?! The 3 shows I've watched so far are..My lovely Samsoon, Princess Hours and My Girl..

Princess hours got me all irritated cuz the guy is so wishy washy..unlike my Dao Ming Si in Meteor Garden. Also the Korean guys ego super big..wah lau..arrogant semacam! But yeah, they make me melt!

For those who intend to watch, here are my recommendations..all 3 that I've watched are great..
The music is also great..Will try to find them and add them to my blog playlist..=)

No surprise tmr am making the trip down to the DVD shop with this same friend to get my new stock of addictions..haha..

Gonna be sharing something personal here:

So I just woke up.Note the timing of the post. It's 3 am now. Anyway I dreamt i was engaged to a public figure in Singapore.

I didn't see my fiance until the day of engagement. So throughout the whole thing i was thinking, this is so wrong, so wrong..but i couldnt get out of it. And ridiculously the guy was 17! not yet earning..not good looking..my worst nightmare! So the whole ceremony went on without them hearing my silent screams..

So it was a very traidtional engagement. Curtains drawn to prevent my fiance from seeing me, i had to eat a little of the rice to signify some acceptance or watever the hell it meant..Ok people please do not laugh. I woke up freaking breathless after all this.

This is not the end of it..So throughout the whole ceremony there were pple with computers and headphones stuck to their ears..Then I was at this table receiving flowers from guests and relatives of my fiance..Apparently some of my relatives caused a commotion and left..Then i was writing on this card, my worst nightmare..Then i realised that i had woken up in the dream, and figuring it out that its all real..not a nightmare! So then i got a call from my friend, congratulating me. I asked her how she knew. She said so her bf's friend was going through the whole friendster list and i was on it and apparently there was a live casting of my whole engagement ceremony on NIE portal! Ridiculous! Haha..I know some of u may be rolling on the floor with this..I know..I'm cringing myself!

Next, I felt darn pressured, people were staring at me, my actions..and I wanted out bad..Was wondering how the rest of my life would be. Then couldnt even click with my fiance...i felt a little like japanese royalty..i dunno why..everyone has to be perfectly made up..pretty all the time..etc..

So i called a friend and she said, well give it a shot, at least she did give it 3 dates before wanting out from this other guy she as out with. And even then there was no public pressure to 'perform'..no puns intended..=)

The whole story ends with me waking up thoroughly disturbed, questioning if i was engaged, and breathless..

Smsed a friend and she comforted me and ends with....to update her if there are any continual episodes...Some friend!

That's positively my worst nightmare! Gotta wash my legs now...Feeling ZZzzz...Night all..may nightmares not haunt me this time round...

Caught the play Fundamentally Happy at the Singapore Museum just now. I seem to be visiting museums a lot in a span of a week. Haha..

Before anything, here are some pics..

The play was OK. It had a realist theme and was a little confusing. The play focuses on 2 characters mainly, 2 old neighbours, more like mother and son. So Son comes back to visit 'Mother' after 20 years and it was revealed that 'father' had raped Son. The play deals with phedophilea, ironic human emotions. It was later realised that Son had actually wanted to be 'raped' because he lacked the human touch in his own home.
It sorta opened my eyes to the fact that the society is quick to blame the predator, but never thought about how the prey had actually liked being 'raped'. I'm not saying that we sympathise with the predator, but it has casted light on how the prey could have felt. Though we should not assume once again that all prey liked being 'raped'.
The Mother was a Madrasah teacher who taught Happiness to her students yet ironically her husband is the cause of much unhappiness.
The play got confusing when Mother tried to get Son to think that he was imagining things and was actually having a memory selection. But Son was convinced he was raped.
So the predator of this play was never shown throughout the whole thing. Apparently it is to bring focus to other themes of the play other than phedophilea. It is also to have the audience have their own visualisations or thinking towards the predator, the director didn't intend to sway the audience.
All in all the play was okay..Still waiting for a production to wow me...=)

Was happily having lunch with a friend and a bombshell was dropped on me..

So it struck me to write this post..With no names attached watsoever..with no specific examples to protect the identity of the witnesses of this case..I hereby begin this post..Hee...

I believe that before u can love others, love yourself first. Before you want to make others happy, u make urself happy first. Because people sense unhappiness in you, and it affects them..

I also believe in making a conscious effort in choosing who you keep close to your heart and those whom u feel is best to avoid. A lot of factors contribute to this choice. One of them would be how they contribute to make u better. How they are a positive energy in your life. It can be viewed as being selfish but let's face it..In the long run, you're in this life faced with your own issues, own goals..Choosing wisely is the only wise thing to do.

Life is complicated when it's made complicated. Look at the bigger picture. Think of your future of the non-existence of it when u choose to keep this person close to you. How will it affect you? Your family? Your friends? Are you prepared to face society's stereotype or pressure? Are you settled in your life and where it is heading to take this on?

My advice to my friend is this.. Dun shut your eyes to the reality, though the reality hurts. Think more deeply about the issue. Do not be selfish to others that you love. Why shoot youself in the foot? You mean more to them than u actually know. ..

In my own blunt words: Ciao before it gets deeper.

A man forced against his will, will be of the same opinion still..~ Khidir's philosophy lecture

Found this song so fitting with what I'm feeling now..=)

Born To Try

Doing everything that I believe in
Going by the rules that I've been taught
More understanding of what's around me
And protected from the walls of love

All that you see is me
And all I truly believe

That I was born to try
I've learned to love
Be understanding
And believe in life
But you've got to make choices
Be wrong or right
Sometimes you've got to sacrifice the things you like
But I was born to try

No point in talking what you should have been
And regretting the things that went on
Life's full of mistakes, destinies and fate
Remove the clouds look at the bigger picture
And all that you see is me
And all I truly believe

That I was born to try
I've learned to love
Be understanding
And believe in life
But you've got to make choices
Be wrong or right
Sometimes you've got to sacrifice the things you like

But I was born to try
All that you see is me
All I truly believe
All that you see is me
And all I truly believe

That I was born to try

Ended school early on Thurs, headed to Sim Lim with Katy and Lina..hee..took less than half an hour from NIE..too late we discovered this too late..NIE ending liao..So after that we went to makan Naan with nihari..at Lil India..the Thaipusam procession was going on..somehow so happy I was there..I swear I must've been an Indian in my past life..Haaha..So happy everytime I'm there..dunno y..Also went to Mustafa to get my lotion..Oh yeah before that Lina was worried abt parallel parking..haha..all female drivers' nightmare..so we found ard 3 slots consecutively that only required her to drive into the slots..lucky her..last time I was there and had to parallel park, I had 2 nice 'aka's to help direct me into the slot..haha..funny..So we headed back home after that..my afternoon out at Lil India..=)

Had school and headed to Changi chalet for the Green Club BBQ on Friday. Was fun..Jabbar always manages to make things funny and lively..the girls are also super warm and friendly..always feeding us the bbq food which was so sweet of them! Haliah's bf also sent us to and back home which was again super nice..Haliah! Do not let him go! =) His car is sooo cool! Hee..Managed to sit down by the Changi Beach Club jetty with the girls and we started chatting like old friends..=) Amazing how girls can connect automatically after talking abt their past loves and etc..The power of girl talk!

Went to ACM with Rai, after Mendaki just now..Was good..a total of 8 galleries I went. Took some pics which will be uploaded soon. Initially wanted to catch Gamelan Rhythms, a team practising. That was great as well..Went through the West Asia/Islamic gallery..Also the India:south east asia gallery..They have very interactive booths also corners to practise speaking the different Indian 'dialects', play Indian games and etc..Everyone should go to the ACM! Enjoyed myself most in the India gallery..See I told u I must've been an Indian in the past..Oh yar i also tried playing the Turkish drum. Was fun..Learnt about the travels of Ibn Batutta..Interesting stuff..but super tiring!
