And suppose I never met you
Suppose we never fell in love
Suppose I never ever let you kiss me so sweet and so soft
Suppose I never ever saw you
Suppose we never ever called
Suppose I kept on singing love songs just to break my own fall
Just to break my fall
Just to break my fall
Break my fall
Break my fall

All my friends say that of course its gonna get better
Gonna get better
Better better better better
Better better better

love love love this song qing shared in her car the other day. so quirky and sweet 🙂 Anw, i won a grand total of 50 cents over the 4hr mahjong session on saturday, but it was a smashing good time spending time with them. and tmr i’ll be heading to the office after a 7 days hiatus, and i’ll probably weep at the state of my laptop.

for the past five days:

my office laptop died on me with a blue screen. i couldn’t work for the following two days. i had bubbly and sparkling wine topped with a stuffed turkey and jelly beans. i had canele chicken stew that tasted like next door neighbour soup spoon (with a fraction of the price). i went a little cranky smiling for more pictures and shopping. i took out the old fujitsu laptop that served me well for the past 4 years and realised the last time i logged in was jan 19 2008, which was the day m departed. i clicked on old folders and files, and flipped through the many photographs we had taken, which coincidentally was the day of our breakup. i was informed that my hard disk had crashed and thereby needs 2 working days for it to be decrypted (or whatever that language was). i realized that i can’t work next monday and tuesday (no thanks to the blue screen and the possibility that my data are all gone).

but. i realised it’s like a wake-up call. like i’ve never expected myself to stumble and flip through all the pictures with the old laptop (serving well minus the weird starting up noises). I can’t guarantee that 2009 will be a smashing year, but at least 2008 is hello and goodbye. i’m off to more rounds of mahjong and hopefully i’ll have better luck there, not that i’m addicted to it.

But I don’t know I keep it to myself

Swimming sessions in the morning and the pool’s all yours. Dinner @ crystaljade with qing & jas, Absolutevodka dressed in xmas deco which was a xmas house party gift. 5 days to xmas with love from starbucks (edit its 2 more days)

watched yes man yesterday and it was hilarious, but kind of dumb. jim carrey has the most rubberized face i’ve ever seen on a human being, and the lead actress zooey looks so much like chloe in acrosstheuniverse movie. The next couple of days will see me pigging out on xmas lunches and dinners, and thereby i think i need to exercise a little more. And, after a 2mth hiatus, i’m back on fb. Ironic isn’t it?

 know that it might sound strange
But you made my seasons start to change
It happened so suddenly
Like heaven has waited up for me

I’ve just been looking so long
Kept meeting my Mr.wrong
In every model and every size
Now my fantasy
Is staring at your eyes

Sometimes you think I’m beautiful
But I don’t know
I’ll keep it to myself
You say it. It feels wonderful
My smile can show
I’m lost in paradise

there was a pair of free tickets to watch e nutcracker at esplanade, but it started at 8pm and we couldn’t make it in time. I had a marvellous dinner at mezza9 with sw, one of the good guy friends and i’ve known him for 7 years (that sounds a little scary). I’m proud of him, because he’s been really successful in knowing what he wants in life and life’s too short for any regrets. Walked over to goodwood for the craving of durian log cake but it was closed, hence the obligatory tourist shot in front of the xmas tree. he drove his new car (which by the way is probably 3 x more than my dad’s trusty honda accord) and went into sentosacove to see the new house his parents bought.

in fact, i’m appalled by how rich some people get, and yet sometimes pleasantly surprised by how down to earth some rich ones are. the new house was amazing with a waterfront view, but somehow it reminded me too much of wysteria lane. we headed back to the main island, and to boiler room (for erhhh..some retro night songs). I’m not much a person to drink on a weekday night, but I think i had quite a bit of fair share yesternight.

And i knocked out at 2.30 in bed. BUT, i woke up early this morning for a run since the sun was doing all of us a favor! My mom’s bringing out the bedsheets to dry and i love the sun-dried smell 🙂

*i think i made my part to pen an email, but whether a reply is reciprocated back or not, it’s not up to me to decide.

maybe baby

i was trying to be curt, and so i ignored her presence.

Now, I realised, it’s hard for me to lose this friendship. So I penned an email to her at 5.30pm and hopefully, we’ll start all over again.

But then, deep down, I’ve got this nagging feeling. Like this friendship probably wasn’t meant to be?

My Favorite Wife

“A sizzling Shanghai tale of sex, romantic struggles and second wives from the bestselling author of Man and Boy Hot shot young lawyer Bill Holden and his wife Becca move with their four-year-old daughter to the booming, gold-rush city of Shanghai. It is a place of opportunity and temptation, where fortunes are made and foreign marriages come apart in spectacular fashion. Bill’s law firm houses the Holden family in Paradise Mansions — a luxury apartment block full of ‘second wives’: beautiful young women like JinJin Li, ex-school teacher, crossword addict, dedicated roller skater and the Holdens’ neighbour. After Becca witnesses a near-tragedy, she returns temporarily to London with Holly — and Bill and JinJin are thrown together. Bill wants to be a better man than the millionaire who keeps JinJin Li as a second wife. Better than any man who cheats. Beccas is his best friend. But in the end, can he give JinJin anything different — can he give her the love she deserves? And can he love his wife too?”

i just bought the book, on 20% discount from MPH (and it’s S$13!) I’ve just read four chapters on my way to work whilst waiting for the orthodonist, and I think this book is going to be a worthy read. Kind of reminiscence of the previous year when I was slogging in SH for intern_ship.
