1. There was NO CARPARK today.
All the freaking way down the hill.
There was a record number of people parking on double yellow lines.
I risked it and parked in a red lot. If I’d gotten clamped I would have definitely given the clamper an earful about bad season parking management!

2. I HATE 9.30pm DAYS!!!

I love this song. The song of farewell. Sadly the only violin versions I can find are from some anime. How annoying! I refuse to post those up!

the wee hours of morning.

For a precious few seconds, my car was the only one cruising along the ECP. Jordan Hill’s Remember Me This Way played on the radio, and the dusty streetlight filtered through the trees lining the expressway. It was a strange sort of serenity, a dynamic serenity, with time and scenery flashing past, a fragile serenity you knew could not last, a moving sort of serenity that was so sweet precisely because it could be broken at the very next second. I slowed down, just to savour the moment.

If you lose your way
Think back on yesterday
Remember me this way

horny = bad!

My dog is sick. He has a fever and intestinal trouble and shitting problems.

Why? Because he got all horny chasing my cousin’s schnauzer at my family gathering a week or so ago. As a result, his prostate swelled so much that it blocked his intestines, and his dick swelled to five times it’s normal size. The intestinal blockage in turn led to the defecation problems, which in turn led to infection, which led to fever.

Now, boys and girls, let me remind you that all this started because he was: HORNY.
You know now what NOT to do yes?

i want to complain.


Watched A Frozen Flower with Caitlin and Jolin after LGDA last Friday and it was a WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!

Ok, maybe not a total waste. The good points about the show were that the costumes, screenplay, and actors generally were excellent. Basically everything was excellent (and Jolin agrees with me) but the PLOT. And for me, if the PLOT fails, the MOVIE fails. Spoilers ahead, so if you intend to watch the movie please don’t read beyond this sentence.

I could not understand one simple thing in the movie.¬†How can you fall in love with someone simply by having sex and NOT communicating with that person?That was (as I read it) how the King’s lover fell in love with the Queen. The implication seems to be that love can only be between a man and a woman and not between men. If I were gay (and I am not), I would find that extremely insulting. The King’s lover was his partner for 10 years and suddenly upon having sex with ONE woman – the one whom he slept with because of his love for the King no less – the King is suddenly ousted?! Surely that cannot be.

The movie, I found, is insulting also to women – the Queen had every reason to hate the King’s lover, as she herself said. Why would she, simply because the King’s lover was good in bed, fall in love with him? The whole movie turns love and lust on their heads, and I agreed wholeheartedly with the King when he told his lover, “You’ve gone mad with lust!”. Perhaps that was the whole point of the movie, to show how lust could be stronger than love. But at the same time remains the question of whether it was lust on the part of the King or love. It’s an interesting movie because it challenges the notions of love and lust, but it’s an irritating movie because I don’t like it when people masquerade lust as love, or love as lust. I quote Janine from He’s Not That Into You – “Why pretend to be wood when you’re not wood?” :p

Not to mention that all three of us felt damn DEPRESSED after the movie. Hahahaha. We should have watched Bruno or Up instead. Grins.

de-ageing plastic.

I’m not so much a fan of Baptiste Giabiconi, but this photo is OMGAWESOME. Props to Karl Lagerfeld.

He smiled and smiled, but never once did he laugh whilst she was alive. Now all he felt was pity. There was no love, no sorrow, no hate, no remorse. There he stood, watching attentively, as the remains of her soul fluttered away in the breeze.

A lot has happened in my 3 week hiatus. I went to France, came back from France, and have not blogged about France. You will hear about France soon. Probably after mini-hellweeks 1, 2 and 3 are over.

The furniture for my living and bedroom arrived a day after I got back from France, and there was total pandemonium as we attempted to dismantle our old cabinet, arrange the new sofa, coffee table, TV console and other nitty gritties into some semblance of order. Why the hurry? We had a family gathering the next day. Which also meant marinating chicken, fishing leaves out of the gravel, giving my bonsai tree a haircut and pruning the unruly bamboo. Said bamboo looked worse than me on a bad hair day. We also went to Katong Flower Shop to buy 2 new plants. I have yet to name the big one. Heehee.

Anyway, today is the FIRST day of the NEW semester, the SECOND LAST semester of law school. I cannot help feeling melancholy. I don’t really want this to end. Law school was a dream I thought I’d never achieve, and even though there were major nightmares involved, I don’t want to give it up yet. :( At least there’s still one last year to savour (and bitch about).

I think I must have been insane to opt for double intensives and 9.30pm days Mon to Fri. What was I thinking?! I’m already quite exhausted from my first day. I cannot imagine, and do not want to imagine, how many facials I will need at the end of these 3 mini-hellweeks. I say mini because I can probably choose to ignore the readings and smoke in class if I want to. But I do not want to do that! Rachel is going to be a hardworking girl this semester! She is however going to swim with Jolin on Thursday. WOOHOO. I cannot wait.

Randomly, I cannot understand why WordPress insists on changing its layout every 3 months. I blog about 6 times, and hey presto there’s a newfangled new interface to squint at! Change for the sake of change is really not necessarily a good thing. ;p
