Another Year... Gone.

It's freaky how fast time flew by this year... I barely feel like I've attended college, went through a series of unfortunate events in the process, auditioned for AYO and YST, took my A Levels exams, played in 4 MPYO camps, got accepted into YST, finished 2 mind-boggling projects...

Where did my 365 days go??

My mom asked me just now: hey, you're gonna leave soon, you know? Shouldn't you start packing?

Honestly, the 1 month I had back in Malaysia hardly felt like 1 week. All the outings, the camp, the trips, the tour-guiding... I look back and think: time really waits for no man...

I wish I could turn back time, go back and right a few wrongs...

January, where disaster struck, maybe I should've handled it a little better. February, I should've been better prepared for the AYO audition. March, I could've started studying for A Levels. April, getting accepted into YST and having to turn down Leeds... (maybe I could've found a way around it?) May, wishing I'd studied harder prior to A Levels trials and NOT skipped Econs classes just to avoid that bastard. June, A Levels exams... July, heading to Singapore, getting settled in YST (should've taken better care of myself - fell sick on the first week of the semester). August, the start of the semester and MPYO camp (I should've practiced more? =P). September, first group project... O_o October, went back to M'sia during the "reading week" (maybe I should've stayed in Singapore). November, 2nd group project (I think I was a bitch at one point...). December, heading back to Malaysia with Raymond, who was joined by a few other Singaporeans 3 days later (I could've done a better job as the hostess?).

And that's just outlining the big picture. So many things have happened in between, some of them I can't even remember anymore, others which details have faded greatly, some I don't even WANT to remember but are permanently stuck in my memories...

Just this year alone, I've lost a supposed "friend" for good, made a few dozen new ones, realising that my family will be there for me no matter what sh*t happens, discovered who my true friends are, realised how difficult it is to do the whole "let's-just-be-friends" thing, (finally) found someone (two people, actually) whom I can trust whole-heartedly, learnt that first impressions can really, be EXTREMELY deceiving... and a host of other things.

But I guess it could've been worse. Okay, there are wounds that will never heal, scars that will be there to remind me of things and events that I don't want remembered, people I've fallen out with, dreams that I had to wave goodbye to... but hey, life's unfair. =)

So I'm just gonna have to learn to take the rough with the smooth.

On a random note,

I heard this song on the radio once and have been trying to find it for ages, and I finally managed to, just 2 hours ago...





"I Stay in Love"
-Mariah Carey-

It's now officially the 1st of January 2010! 

Here's to a brand new year, a fresh start, and may it bring to everyone happiness, success, laughter and love.

I know it will be a very happy and exciting year for me. *beams*

6 Deysch and Counting!

Went to watch yet another movie today. O_O

I dunno what's up with us this week. Gone on a movie craze, I reckon. We watched a movie when we were in Genting, watched a movie again after coming back to KL, watched another movie today, AND we're gonna watch either Cirque Du Freak or Sherlock Holmes tomorrow. -_-;

Not, that I'm complaining.

Helps pass the time faster, in any case. =D

Had lunch with the siblings in Pizza Hut this afternoon. Stuffed crust and lots and LOTS-a mozzarella cheese... *yummm* SO sinful, but what the heck? We only live once. *wink*

Watched "Alvin and the Chipmunks 2" earlier. I REALLY wanted to catch Cirque Du Freak, which just came out today, but NO... The one at 2pm was sold out, and the showtimes after that would've been too late. (mom wanted to avoid the jam) O_o

Oh, the concert last night was good. But it was a little heavy on the ears (for my mom and I, at least) cause 3 out of 4 groups were doing REALLY mainstream stuff, which is nice, but I can't listen to it for long. Makes my mind go a little wonky. Had to resort to thinking about my plans for the next day to distract myself from the vast amount of jamming they were doing. &@#$%^!!

*pause*

Alex just came over with some souvenirs he bought from Bangkok. Haha! Got me a bookmark ('since you read so much,' says he) and a nice, check-patterned hairband. The dude can be a real pain sometimes but... he's got good taste (occasionally). =P

Right. Bugging e-mail time. Heehee~

I've gotta practice!!!


You know you've got it bad, when you're missing the warmth......

7 more daysch!

Cannot believe I'm still functioning after only sleeping 4-5 hours last night. The movie ended at 3.45am, and by the time I got to bed, it was already 4.30am. Woke up at 10am because my mom wanted to have lunch with the grandmother in PJ, spent a few hours there, and now I'm back home, wishing I could just crawl onto my bed and sleep, but can't because I need to get in some practice before heading out to KLCC for the jazz concert.

I-hate-my-life.

Okay, no I don't. But still... I look and feel like a zombie. O_O

The movie was good, though I was a little too tired to really appreciate it. Maybe we should go again at a more earthly time? Haha! The dad actually fell asleep during the less-exciting parts cause he's been up to his neck with work the past 3-4 weeks...

On a random note...
 
People do stupid things all the time, and sometimes these stupid things let our parents down and they get err... well, pissed and/or disappointed. But hey, everyone makes mistakes, and most of the time, these mistakes are due to lack of thinking on our part. As long as you realise it and apologize, I don't see why your parents won't understand that it was mere recklessness on your part and forgive you.

Cause hey, we all learn from our mistakes, no?

Right, I'm off to send someone an e-mail now so... Will update again about the concert tonight, sometime tomorrow. =)


Did I ever mention how much I dislike the whole CORS bidding thing? -_-;


Melody and Harmony in love~

Boy, I LOVE that song. =D

Can't believe I'm leaving so soon...

8 days =)

Feeling very happy with myself today (apart from knowing for a fact that I've gained 3kgs in the last 6 months, but that's a different story altogether O_O). Changed my strings, practiced for more than 3 hours, my shoulder didn't bother me at all the whole day, the concerto's starting to sound a lot better, did some good shopping, and I'm catching a movie with the family tonight at Mid Valley! =)

Bought a BRAND NEW pair of sports shoes (for badminton, cause my Sketchers are pretty worn out already) from Adidas, as well as a nice hoodie from ELLE. =D

Whee~

Can't believe I'm going to watch Avatar 3D at 12.45am later. O_o 

It's gonna end past 3am, and I have to wake up by 11am tomorrow if I wanna practice, go do some shopping in KLCC with mommy, and catch the jazz concert David and a few others are playing in at 8.30pm, after I meet up (hopefully) with Alex and Choon Hui for dinner. 

Am I screwed or what?

Grr... so much for staying home and chillin' for the rest of my holidays huh?

Oh well, mom starts work this Saturday, so she wants to go out as much as possible I suppose... Plus, going out shopping with mommy means I don't have to spend my own money! Heehee~

Okay, I'm gonna go practice a lil' more before we head out again, so yeah...

Toodles!




Can't wait? I know I can't. =P

9 Dayzz~

Just my luck ey? Got the freakin' period last night after going back to the hotel. O_o

*lets out a string of swear words*

On a brighter note, I did some quality practice today after coming back from Genting. My shoulder was aching like crap after that, but I felt good. =D

Right. I'm supposed to be sleeping now so... Toodles!



just 9 more days...

10 days~

Watched Avatar this evening with the aunt, uncle, bro and sis.

I LOVED it! Gonna watch it again when I get back to Singapore! =P

Did a bit of shopping after lunch at Coffee Terrace (man, I ate A-LOT!) today. Bought a nice, casual (black) top from Giordano, and I'm now thinking of whether I should get this other top I tried on from B.U.M. =) It's a 2-piece top, and it's 20% off! Grr... So tempting!

Okay, something tells me I'm gonna go back there and get it tomorrow morning. O_o

Had a nice dinner to make up for the crappy one yesterday... and my siblings, aunt, uncle and I had fun telling the rest of the family about how much we enjoyed ourselves (watching Avatar) even though we were seated on the 2nd row. Yeah, I had to tilt my head up to look at the screen most of the time. And the movie ain't very short. It was close to 2 and a half hours long! O_o Explains why my neck felt terribly sore after the movie ended. But hey, it was worth it!

Just had an ice cream sundae and 3 pieces of nuggets. =P Boy, am I full! 

Seriously, judging by the way I've been eating... 

*pause*

Put it this way, by the time I get back to Singapore, I won't believe anyone who tells me I haven't put on weight. =D

Tralala~

Sorry, momentary black out there... 

Hey, it's 12.30am right now so my brain's starting to malfunction. I-need-sleep!

Zzzzz~



It happens everytime,
oh it's magic when we meet,
Down on DreamStreet...

*winks*

So I'll meet you down on dream street. =D

on a random note...

took this pic this morning RIGHT after I woke up. =P

11 days...

Blergh... I canNOT believe I'm in Genting. AGAIN!! It's the flaming 3RD time I'm here in 3 WEEKS! And quite frankly speaking, I'm sick of it. Like, seriously, in a "I-never-wanna-come-here-again" kinda sick.

Oh well, at least there's WiFi at Starbucks, or I really wouldn't know what to do with my time here apart from sleeping like a pig, which is what I have been doing ever since I came back from camp. O_o Mum reckons that all the family's seen of me this holidays is an energy-drained zombie who sleeps more than 12 hours a day, and still wakes up looking half dead.

My trip here to Genting hasn't been all that nice though. Dinner was crap, we had TWELVE people at the dinner table, but the servings they gave were only enough for 3 poeple max. The FISH, oh my goodness, the FISH, was no bigger than my palm! The funniest part was, when my aunt asked the "manager": is THIS it? For TWELVE people?

The woman had the cheek to reply: well, you only ordered ONE fish.

My dad was like: okay, next time, we'll order TWELVE fishes. (we burst out laughing at that one)

NOT, that there will be a NEXT time, of course.

I actually am quite tempted to post up some of the pictures we took during dinner, but the connection over here (Starbucks) is pretty wonky, so if you're feeling abominably bored, check out the album on Facebook here.

Thing about the family is, whether or not we're having a lousy dinner in some crappy road-side stall or a scrumptious meal in a fancy hotel restaurant, we still have fun talking and cracking jokes. =) It's moments like these that I miss most when I'm in Singapore. 

*sighs*

And to think I'm going back so soon... 

Oh well, I can always stalk my sister's blog for whatever's going on in the family. The girl posts almost every detail on her blog. O_o 

ANYWAYS, I'm just gonna stop here. The sis wants to use my laptop, so I'll update when err...

whenever I feel like it la. =)

So the Cat is Out of the Bag...

It's such a relief to not have to conceal anything anymore. I didn't think it would be difficult, but it hurt having to actually ignore what I really wanted to say/do. It hurt doubly more having to pretend not to know somebody. O_o

I'm glad that there's nothing left to hide.

Don't think we haven't noticed people talking about it behind our backs. I'm a bad actor, yes, but I'm not an idiot.

So, camp's over. Boy, I hardly felt like we actually went through it. Concert was just last night, but it already feels like it was a few days back. I don't feel like I've played in 2 concerts, hung out with friends for 10 days, gone to mamak twice... Time just flies by when you're having fun.

I was (again) room mates with Lu Ee, both in KL and Singapore. It's hard to believe that I've been in so many camps, and have been room mates with her since my first camp in PERMATA. Mosquito-infested PERMATA, which will be our next camping venue. O_o

I'm gonna miss Darby Park. 

*yawns*

I just woke up from a highly regenerating 4-hour nap. =D Hardly slept last night, *coughs* so yeah... Played Mafia till about 4am this morning.

Okay. Christmas dinner at my aunt's place now!!!


PRESENTS!!!!!!



14 days...

wuv you <3

Love You Like Crazy

Concert's in about 7 hours time. Practiced a little this morning...

Sleepy...


Could hardly fall asleep last night cause dear old dad *glares* was watching football with the volume level turned up. (My room's right behind the TV area) O_o I was tossing and turning till I couldn't stand it, decided to poke my head out of my room and tell him to turn it down.

 -_-;

Woke up at 8 to follow my mom and aunt to the marketplace. Had half-boiled eggs for breakfast!! And "Teh Si". Yumm...

Doing some Christmas shopping in KLCC later before rehearsals start. Alone. *sniff*

Nah, I told mom I wanted to get some things for the grandparents, aunt and uncle so... Yeah. Dunno if my siblings wanna come along... But that would mean them having to hang around KLCC with nothing to do whilst I'm in rehearsals, cause there's no way my parents are gonna come all the way to fetch them again.

See how... See how... =)

Right. I'm gonna go wash my hair...

Whee~


I can't tell you how else it would've turned out, cause I can't imagine what it'd be like for me without... yeah. I'm sorry if I led you on or anything. I really didn't mean to. Sorry...

How Do I Say...



How's that girl lookin'
pretty cool huh? I Think She's fine
너무 설레여 떨리는 내두손
가득히 맺히는 땀망울
마주보기 조차 힘든 나의사랑
그대 너무나도 사랑스런 모습

[혜성](Yeah~~ No no~ No baby~
Oh~~ Baby Oh Yeah~)
[신화]How Do I say I Like You
How do I say I love You

[민우]어색한 듯 침묵은 흐르지만
맘은 달라 가슴은 더 뛰고
터질듯 한 내 맘은 널 원하는데 Yeah
하지만 내 입술은 부끄러워

[동완]말 한마디 건네보지 못한 채
너의 눈만 빤히 바라보다
[혜성]떨리는 내 맘 너에게 들킬까봐
고만하며 고개 숙인 채 난

[신화]How do I say I like you Baby
[혜성]어떻게 이런 내 맘 전할까요?
[신화]How do I say I love you Baby,
[민우]I just want to love you Baby

[동완]그런채로 시간은 더 흘러가고
가슴속은 더 타들어 가고
어떤 애기든 너에게 해야만 해
이대로 너 일어설지도 몰라

[민우]말 한마디 건네보지 못한 채
너의 눈만 빤히 바라보다
[혜성]떨리는 내 맘 너에게 들킬까봐
고만하며 고개 숙인 채 난

[신화]How do I say I like you Baby
[혜성]어떻게 이런 내 맘 전할까요?
[신화]How do I say I love you Baby,
[동완]I just want to love you Baby

[전진](하~~ 어떻게 말을하지?
왜 이렇게 말이 않나오는 거야?)
이대로 시간이 멈췄으면
내가 좀더 멋진말을 떠올릴 수 있게
너를 향한 내속의 사랑
I Need You (어!) I Want Your Love

[에릭]잠깐 내말을 들어줘
조금만 있음 생각 날 듯도 한데
앞이 캄캄 이거 나 원참 (Slow Down)
무슨말을 할까? 가슴에다 묻어둔 말
I'm in love with You
목안에 맴도는 말은 아마도 It's you,
전할 수 없음에 그말 입안에 머물다
또 가슴안에 삼켜

[혜성]Baby!~ 사실은 너무 행복해
너와 마주 앉은 지금
Stay Stay 조금만 기다려줘
이젠 내 입술을 바라봐

[신화]How do I say 난 널 사랑해
[혜성]오랫동안 너만을 바래왔어
[신화]How do I say 난 너를 원해
[혜성]오직 내안엔 너 뿐인 걸
[신화]How do I say 난 널 사랑해
[혜성]오랫동안 너만을 바래왔어
[신화]How do I say 난 너를 원해
[혜성]이잰 니 맘은 말해줄래
나를 니안에 받아줄개

Translation:

Right there...

How's that girl lookin'? pretty cool huh? I think she's fine 

With a handful of sweat in my shaking hands 
It is heavenly to face each other, my love you are such a lovely sight


The silence passes by uncomfortably and my mind is unsettled, my heart is beating 
My mind is full to bursting and I want you, yeah, but my lips are shy


Without having to say anything to you, just watching your eyes 
until you notice my nervous heartbeat, I can only keep my head drooped 

How do I say I like you baby, how do I say what’s on my mind? 
How do I say I love you baby, just I want to love you baby


The time ticks by and my mind grows more crowded 
I have to tell you what’s on my mind, 

Without having to say anything to you, just watching your eyes 

until you notice my nervous heartbeat, I can only keep my head drooped

How do I say I like you baby, how do I say what’s on my mind? 
How do I say I love you baby, just I want to love you baby

(Ha~ How do I say this? Why won’t the words come out?) 

I want to stop time so I can make this sound better 
The love for you that’s in me, I need you (uh!) I want your love


Listen to me for a moment, if you just stay for a second, it’ll come to me 
My vision has become blurry (Slow down) 
What should I say? The words that are branded on my heart, I’m in love with you 
The words that are caught in my throat- It's you 
I can’t let out what I’ve been holding in my mouth and leave it in my heart 

Truthfully, I’m in utter bliss when I feel your warmth 
Stay, stay, wait just a while for me, read my lips

 
How do I say I love you, I searched for you for a long time 
How do I say I want you, you’re the only one for me 
How do I say I love you, I searched for you for a long time 
How do I say I want you, now will you tell me what's on your mind? 
Will you accept me?


Just a little something I haven't listened to for awhile. I may be majoring in (predominantly) Classical music, so sue me if I still swoon over nice, romantic Korean songs. =)

보고 싶어...

And the fun continues tomorrow~!!!

Back

In Singapore O_o

Okay so technically I'm supposed to be practicing right now, but I gave up after what... 25 minutes-ish?

*I can hear my mom screaming at me now* =P

I'm tired, alright? It's camp now, so I haven't been getting much sleep the entire week, which explains why I've got these huge-ass bags under my eyes right now, and I'm also conserving energy for the MPYO performance that's due to start in 2 hours.

Okay, maybe the "conserving energy" part is bullshit but

*rudely interrupted by James' call announcing the arrival of fellow MPYO members*

yeah, I'm tired.

Have to do a lil' socialising in about 20 minutes so I'm gonna stop here. To be frank, the only reason I decided to blog was because I had nothing else to do to kill time.

=D

This blog is SO dying...

The Epitome of Stupidity and Random-ness

It's a Sunday afternoon and I feel like posting up something superbly (stupid and) random =)


ayemischyew


I reckon I must have slept too much last night. Explains why I'm not functioning this afternoon. O_o My coordination's all effed-up. Was "trying" to practice earlier, but for some weird and unexplainable reason, my arms and fingers just wouldn't coordinate... I shall give it another shot later. 

Camp's tomorrow!!!

=D 

Oh what the fudge*%?!!&*@$?!!!!! I haven't packed yet!


*whistles*

Must-prac-tice....

Saturday, 12 December 2009

Exhausted



I'm tired...

Really tired...

Now I'm REALLY wondering if I should've just...




You know what?

Nevermind.


Gonna go for camp on Monday...

We'll see how things go from there

Tuesday, 8 December 2009

Time...


I'm counting the minutes...

=D

Singaporeans will be leaving tonight. The Genting trip was fun... Went on rides I'd never get to go on if I went with my bro/sis. Finally, I'll be relieved of my tour guide duties...

And I can PRACTICE!!

I'll miss them though.

Ok, Guan Yu's the one who asked me to say that. =P

Oh dang, I should take a look at the MPYO parts later. =) Knowing me, with my abominably horrific sight-reading skills, I'd screw up ONE way or another if I don't prepare well. O_o

Driving to KLCC!!!


On a random note:

"Crash and Burn"
Savage Garden

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please to tame your wild wild heart
I know you feel like the walls are closing in on you
It's hard to find relief and people can be so cold
When darkness is upon your door and you feel like you can't take anymore

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

When you feel all alone
And a loyal friend is hard to find
You're caught in a one way street
With the monsters in your head
When hopes and dreams are far away and
You feel like you can't face the day

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

'Cause there has always been heartache and pain
And when it's over you'll breathe again
You'll breath again

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please
To tame your wild wild heart

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone



LOOOOOOVE this song. =D

It Feels Good

To be home...

Got back a few days ago, actually. But I've been too occupied with showing Raymond and the Singaporeans around that I haven't even had much of a chance to breathe. =)



I realise that forever is in your eyes...


46 hours

*winks*

Watching Jian Wang in concert tomorrow at DFP...

Then it's Genting again the day after!!!! Awesome-ness ay? I'm gonna drop dead when we get back. =)

I'm going to get some rest now...

Toodles, people!

I MIGHT get a haircut tomorrow as well... 

we'll see, we'll see...

Sometimes

...stuff that you never thought would happen, happens.

...you hear things you never thought you'd hear.

...you're left wondering whether you said the right things, chose the right words, made the right decision etc...

...it's better to just "go with the flow", and see where life takes us.

I just HOPE it's not a roller coaster ride. =)

In the next two weeks, I have to:

-Bring Raymond around KL.
-Be a tour guide for 4 Singaporeans.
-Get enough practice before I play for Liu Jian.
-Run through MPYO parts.
-Try not to kill myself. =P

Ah, but no matter. I can deal with all that, cause...



I'm going home tomorrow~

Though I'll kinda miss...

Ah nevermind.

Wheeee~

=P

Misunderstood?

Why are people forming conclusions just based on what they see/hear? 

Why do they go around telling other people about it when they're not even sure themselves?

Does it make them happy when other people gasp in shock as the (false) "news" is announced?

Can't you keep your tongues in check when it comes to these matters? 

Don't these people realise what damage these rumours can bring upon friendship?



I've mentioned this in a post WAY back, but I'm gonna say the same things again.

Just because 2 people eat together, it doesn't mean they're an item.
Just because 2 people hang out together, it doesn't mean they're an item.
Just because 2 people are seen together more than once, it doesn't mean they're an item.

Just because you lot don't have anything more interesting to gossip about, doesn't mean you can stitch a story up and tell people that 2 people are together.

I'm with Guan Yu most of our free time, does that make me a lesbian?

Sorry if I sound rude in the following sentences but...

Can people EVER stop making assumptions??? If you're itching to find out, just open your God-given organ (mouth) and ASK instead of talking about it behind our backs, and telling people things which are NOT true!

Again, something I've mentioned before, and I stress it again.

STOP making assumptions, cause it only makes U look like an ASS to ME.

Get a life, and leave others alone.

Ah, But The Truth Is Meant To Hurt

If you ever need a example of someone who has made a fool out of herself twice in a row, *points to self* Exhibit A.

I'm not even joking.


Jesse McCartney was in this group before he went solo. I just like the chorus. =)

Yes, boybands are SO last century, but I still like em'. So sue me.

*sticks out tongue*

Sorry, I haven't been sleeping much so I've been more cranky than usual. Not that it's possible, (to be crankier than usual) but yeah, I've been functioning less efficiently than usual. O_o

I shall go practice now...



It happens everytime,
When I see you,
It happens everytime,
When I think of you,
It happens everytime,
Oh, it's magic when we meet...

Down on Dream Street.

BEDLAM jokes =)

JOKE 1

The Geography of a Woman

Between 18 and 22, a woman is like Africa - half discovered, half wild, fertile and naturally beautiful!

Between 23 and 30, a woman is like Europe - well-developed and open to trade, especially for something of real value.

Between 31 and 35, a woman is like Spain - very hot, relaxed, and convinced of her own beauty.

Between 36 and 40, a woman is like Greece - gently aging, but still a warm and desirable place to visit.

Between 41 and 50, a woman is like Great Britain, with a glorious and all-conquering past.

Between 51 and 60, a woman is like Israel - has been through war, doesn't make the same mistakes twice, and takes care of business.

Between 61 and 70, a woman is like Canada - cool, self-preserving, but open to meeting new people.

After 70, she becomes Tibet - wildly beautiful, with a mysterious past and the wisdom of the ages.... an adventurous spirit and a thirst for spiritual knowledge.

The Geography of a Man

Between 1 and 80, a man is like Iran - ruled by nuts.


JOKE 2

Little Tommy rushed into the farmhouse and said, 'Mummy, mummy, come look. The bull is f *** ing one of the cows'

His mother's jaw dropped, 'Tommy,' she scolded. 'You must never say that word again. You should say, the bull is surprising one of the cows. "

A week later, Tommy runs into the farmhouse once more. 'Mummy, mummy,' he said excitedly 'The bull is Surprising ALL of the cows. "

His mother shook her head. 'Now Tommy, do not be silly. The bull can not surprise ALL the cows. "

Tommy nodded vigorously. 'Yes it can ....'

'No it can not, Tommy. "

'Yes it can .... It's f **** ing the horse. "


JOKE 3

Haha. Get more laughs HERE!

Last Thing On My Mind




I LOVE this song =D



And this.

Just had a Major Lesson with Mr Souptel. He wants me to get the score for Mozart 6th. O_o Orchestra performance this Saturday and we still suck (no surprises there). Makes me miss MPYO all the more cause at least WE care about what we're playing.

Staying at Darby Park again! Wheee~

=P

Nothing much to blog about actually... I posted an album on Facebook 2 days back (I think). I am NOT gonna post any of them on Facebook cause it takes such a BLEEDING long time to upload, so go check them out HERE.

Right. Going for an "in-conservatory" concert tonight. A few of our friends are playing so we're going to give our err... moral support? =)

I've been sleeping for no more than 4 1/2 hours per night for the past 2 weeks. O_o

Oh, and there's a limit to how much teasing a girl can take. You're stepping dangerously on my already-frayed nerves. I don't mind being teased, people do that all the time, but it's not funny anymore when the teasing amounts to insults. Teasing, I can take; even SEVERE teasing. But don't insult my intelligence by linking me to the likes of Ris Low. I'm no genius, but I definitely know I'm not an effing bimbo.

If you haven't got anything nice to say in future, just shut up and leave me alone...

I'm sick of it.

ALL of it.

Exasperated

You OBVIOUSLY don't care, so, I'm not gonna bother from now on.

I feel like a wreck. My fingers were freezing up in the practice room earlier so I had to stop for awhile. Dunno why, but YST felt colder than usual tonight.

Waited for Guan Yu to get back before heading out for my very late dinner with her and James. Were supposed to join Jason and the rest, but I didn't feel like drinking tonight so we just ate on our own and headed back to PGP.

I finally decided to spill the beans, but only 2 people in the whole wide world knows (you know who you are) and I intend to keep it that way. =D

Gonna wake up to practice in the morning tomorrow... MIGHT (it's highly unlikely, but...) go look-see-look-see Halloween Celebration in NAFA. That's IF I'm satisfied enough with my practice. O_o

There's not much to update about. There's some Symposium thing going on right now, so a few of our classes has been cancelled. I am (finally) reasonably satisfied with my variation, and will have to get started on the remainder of my assignments/projects, soon.

Honestly, someone PLEASE slap me.

We Could Be In Love...

by Lea Salonga and Brad Kane

I haven't heard this song in awhile... And I realise that, I still love it. =D

Be still my heart

Lately its mind is on it's own
It would go far and wide
Just to be near you

Even the stars
Shine a bit bright I've noticed
When you're close to me
Still it remains a mystery

Anyone who's seen us
Knows what's going on between us
It doesn't take a genius
To read between the lines
And it's not just wishful thinking
Or only me who's dreaming
I know what these are symptoms of
We could be in love

I ask myself why
I sleep like a baby through the night
Maybe it helps to know
You'll be there tomorrow

Don't open my eyes
I'll wake from the spell I'm under
Makes me wonder how tell me how
I could live without you now

And what about the laughter
The happy ever after
Like voices of sweet angels
Calling out our names
And it's not just wishful thinking
Or only me who's dreaming
I know what these are symptoms of
We could be in love

All my life I have dreamed of this
But i could not see your face
Don't ask why two such distant stars
Can fall right into place

Anyone who's seen us
Knows what's going on between us
It doesn't take a genius
To read between the lines
And it's not just wishful thinking
Or only me who's dreaming
I know what these are symptoms of
We could be in love

Thoughts

Can anything ever feel as right as it feels wrong?

My guess is: yes, it's possible.

But being possible doesn't make it any easier. Just complicates things. Especially if one doesn't quite know what to make of the situation. Which kinda sucks.

Okay, not "kinda" sucks. It sucks BIG time.

In any case, THIS is just for laughs.

And so is THIS.

Enjoy, people =D

You BOTH don't mind being butts of jokes right? 

*smirks*

Oh Dear...

I thank goodness that I'm not (I hope) plagued with this. =)

This is for you babe.

It is hard dealing with someone who you really like, but that person doesn't like you back. You try everything in your power to get them to notice you, but it doesn't work out. Don't be discouraged when it doesn't work. That just means he is not the right one for you.

Here's the thing:

1- When you find out that someone who you have a crush on doesn't like you back, don't cry over him because most likely he is not thinking about you.
  1. 2- If you feel depressed, go and hang out with friends to take your mind away from the situation.

    3- Go home and either watch movies, read a book, or play table games.

    4- Talk to someone about the situation to get it out of your system. Don't try to bottle it inside. It's not healthy

    If that still doesn't work, gimme a call, give me his number and I'll scream at him for you.

HAHA!
LOVE the colour
Some Thai fellows posing for the camera. =)

La la la~

It's almost 2am and I can't fall asleep, so I figured I might as well blog to tire myself out. O_o

I hope it works. I hate it when I'm bodily and mentally tired but...

I

Just

Can't

EFFIN'

FALL ASLEEP!!!


*growls*

Had class as usual today, then went out for a bit with Tarrant (he was my senior back in MCKL). Took him around YST, and apparently, he was really satisfied cause he managed to get some really nice shots with his fancy-pansy camera. ;)

I think there are a couple of ugly ones with me in it though... I shall post them on Facebook (and here, if I find the time) once he's done "processing" them.

Had dinner at Munchie Monkey's, where I bumped into Sabina, Budi, Jonathan an Raymond. He (Tarrant) bought me dinner (THANK YOU!) because (according to him) I'd been a good tour guide *chokes* and provided him with "satisfactory" shooting err... subjects, if that's how you term it. O_o

I'm sorry. I'm actually typing this with my eyes half open and my brain working it's minimum, which is VERY close to... well, not working at all really. I'm just typing things off the top of my head, which I seldom do, cause I usually think them through beforehand.

Unfortunately, I'm not in the right frame of mind to do that now.

You know, I MIGHT just be able to fall asleep now.

Toodles!

Has Never Felt So Satisfied

I've fallen in love with Beethoven's Symphony No 7 all over again...

Yes, the concert rocked. Like, almost everyone from YST, as well as quite a number in the audience, stood up to cheer and clap when they finished. Awesome stuff. The experience was... just so darn refreshing. And it makes me feel good, like I made the right choice, studying music. =)

Oooh, not to mention we managed to take photos as well!

Well, we only took pics with one of the orchestra members (Matthew Muckey, trumpet) but we only managed to see him, so...

That's Erik with Matt

Matt and I


Guan Yu and Matt

And it's sleep time people! 

Nights!

LOVES

A good orchestra. =D

Went for the New York Phil Concert last night. They played the Brahms Violin Concerto with Frank Peter Zimmermann and Mahler's Symphony No 1.

Wynne, Guan Yu and I were left in awe after it ended. The fourth movement of the symphony, in particular, left us breathless. I couldn't think straight for a few solid minutes, just kept on clapping as hard as I could. Haha. Oh, and we've sorta developed this crush on one of the members in the orchestra.

*gasps*

Haha. He's cute, and plays well too so...

Violinist was fantastic. I don't fancy the concerto much, but the third movement was insane. The orchestra colaborated so well with the soloist AND the conductor.

I wish I could say the same for our Masterclass earlier that day (Beethoven 7th)... A lot of us weren't taking it seriously, some even coming in 2 minutes before the masterclass was due to start. And all he did was try to get us to play in tempo and in rhythm. Like, what a waste right? And I felt so embarrassed whenever he repeated himself (which he did, quite often). I'm surprised that we got as far as half the first movement. Luckily we weren't doing the 3rd movement with him, or we'd just be repeating the first 2 bars again and again and again... O_o

But still, I learnt a lot. Like how dangerous rests can be cause you can't hear if they're not together. Like, of course we knew that, but I bet no one's ever thought of them (rests) that way before. And I heard a complete difference from our usual rehearsal when he ran through a part of the 1st movement with us for the FIRST time.

Anyhoo, gonna watch them again tonight! This time we're gonna see if it's possible to get some pictures!!! *beams*

Toodles!

It's an all-Beethoven affair tonight! *squeals*

It's Not So Bad After All

I had fun these 3 days. Went for a "reading session" with the OMM today. Did Mahler, Bernstein and Star Wars. Heehee.

The Mahler was okay, I liked the melody and chord progressions he used in certain parts of the first and the last movements. Bernstein was...

Phenomenal.

Well, for me, anyways. Because I love the piece to bits and it's the first time I've played it with an orchestra, so I literally had goosebumps when it came to my favourite parts. It's very different from listening to a recording and playing it yourself. And I was playing the first violin part, so I got to play my number 1 favourite section (cha-cha andantino). Can't describe it in words, but the experience of playing it was just...

Lets just say it felt real good =)

I reckon I'm gonna come back here early next year so I can play in this concert. I mean, we'll be playing it in the MPYO soon (I hope), but I'm not in the first violins so this is like... Golden opportunity? Lol.

Geez, I'm crapping again. Well, in my defence, I haven't been sleeping early, which I should, before my bodily functions go haywire and sleeping late becomes a permanent setting or something. O_o

Ooohh. I had a VERY nice dinner earlier. James and I (we were the only ones who went for OMM cause Raymond and Linh decided to give it a pass) had dinner near the rehearsal place cause we didn't wanna have to eat in NUS. A little more expensive than what I usually have, but since I haven't been having breakfast, I'm not really going over my budget. We haven't even been going out, so...

Which reminds me, I HAVE to get the rest of my contact lens package tomorrow! I was supposed to get it yesterday, but I was too exhausted.


Things could be worse...
I'm just glad I've got nothing to lose...
We'll see...

I'm in a better position than I thought. Heehee
