she learned romance as she grew older;


That colour in the background always reminds me of Anne Elliot. It's like a sort of dull and melancholic yet rich and elegant red, full of suppressed passion, waiting to be polished into a bright, flamboyant red. Just like Anne. (:

I got that Snoopy figurine from some store in Wheelock Place which sell ultra-adorable collectibles. (: How could I pass up on a Snoopy collectible? xP That red leather diary book at the back was bought from Kinokuniya. The entire book is so... so...Literature-ish. (Tell me a better word to use. )

And a photo I captured at Orchard Road:

Lots and lots of random photos!
I guess I kind of missed summer (er yeah it's summer all year round in Singapore huh) so I played around with my camera, yukata and windmill. xD Ididn'twear the obi so it's all loose! xP The railing photo was taken at Vivocity. I think the outside is my favourite of every place at Vivocity な~ And the origami dragon I made is really disgraceful can !! But I still like that photo anyway.

ふふふ~ I miss using my camera... 早くよ、I want that photo outing with Loulou and Esther... Maybe along the way we can go to Fort Canning Park or something (the one near Liang Court) and catch an old ah peh sleeping there Or Bukit Timah, or wherever with pretty things to take photos of!

I miss fish roe sushi at Meidiya... 食べたい!!

Ooh time for dinner.

the kingdom called Canteen.


we owned the canteen
yeaaaaa. xP

So while there was Queen Lear, there were Queen Canteen 1 and Queen Canteen 2 too. Spastic photo and line but never ind. We were the only ones in the canteen so we started photowhoring. x) And we silently waited for invaders to move out, by doing what Guido from Life is Beautiful did. (In case you do not know, it means trying to magically wave your hands and fingers and chant out a wish to make it happen xD)

Damn funny LOL.

And I'm glad I said a sorry. (: I guess I realised it was the whole incident that I was angry/frustrated over, and not that particular person. Yeah. And thanks for accepting the apology. :))

I ADORE EVERYTHING ABOUT MRS GAN! Down to her toenails. (:

maybe she's just pieces of me you didn't see;


-photo by sylvia.

Went to Spotlight today and got these. Pretty, pretty buttons, lace and a fabric marker. Apparently I haven't studied, because I was too excited over wrapping gifts for my clique.

My dad called me a 笨蛋 when I walked into Sembawang and couldn't spot him, HURRRRR. But we're two 大笨蛋s anyway, so it's even. Papa bought Josh Groban's album for me ! "Hey~ Josh Groban-" "Buy."

Then we went to Spotlight and got pretty pretty buttons :D ...which he couldn't see the beauty in them. >=|

At Daiso, we kept grabbing stuff off the shelves. Actually, I merely touched any single item and you'll know he'd say, "BUY." I think he uses that word as his full-stop or something. But of course I didn't get everything x) Papa was super funny though. He was yawning but when he came by some straw hats he put one on and TRIED to act cool So funny, there were lots of people around! Then he started playng with kiddy sunglasses... This guy is amazing xD

I want to go back there and get some figurines and pretty display items so that when I clear my shelves of study materials I can place them there :D

I want more 两个笨蛋 outings ! (Actually dad calls our family 放屁家族 -farting family- )

The first photo is a photo of cranes made by Yana,
and the second is the くす玉折り紙 that I did.

It seems like the only thing I can do correctly and accurately, is Origami. なんで? I take things too personally, but whenever you make a comment, I feel like I did something wrong and I am responsible for it. 疲れたな…

goodbye to toDAY;


-photos by sylvia. (nightshot function :D)

The curtains were half drawn; the floor was swept
And strewn with rushes; rosemary and may
Lay thick upon the bed on which I lay,
Where, through the lattice, ivy-shadows crept.
He leaned above me, thinking that I slept
And could not hear him; but I heard him say,
"Poor child, poor child"; and as he turned away
Came a deep silence, and I knew he wept.
He did not touch the shroud, or raise the fold
That hid my face, or take my hand in his,
Or ruffle the smooth pillows for my head.
He did not love me living; but once dead
He pitied me; and very sweet it is
To know he still is warm though I am cold.

-Christina Rossetti; "After Death".

a moment of narcissism;


I have fat legs. LOL but it's okay, I had fun relieving stress. Now I have to make up for the studying. One day when my hair isn't in such bad condition anymore, maybe I'd dare to venture wearing my hair like that when I go out. I am such a narcissist ! xD Every day I'm starting to look at myself more and more in the mirror. But really, it's not only because I'm getting more and more vain, but it's because I want to assure myself that no one will look at me oddly when I go out.

My first time using the tripod stand for photography. x) And I never knew the kitchen was so fun for taking photos. And one of my regrets was that I didn't think of shifting the plant into the photo because then it wouldn't look as plain. >_< I realised plants with colours of green, red and yellow light up and GREATLY enhance photo of that lighting. The things smaller objects can do. Sigh.

Field of daisies in my mind.


Dads are one of the most random people in the world. They come home with daisies on random days. What more could you ask of a dad? (:

Snapshots : trackback(0) : comment(2)

you raise me up;


Some people just can't grow up. :P

The biggest lie he told me was...

"Papa is the tallest man on Earth!"

...which I found out was entire untrue when an European walked past him in a departmental store. But it is the cutest lie I have ever heard. (: Thank you for always taking my tantrums and giving me so much that it is impossible to measure a return.

I am blessed to have the greatest dad on Earth one could ever have. He is always there for me even when he doesn't understand or know what has happened. He comes home and brings me a daisy on random days, and lets me throw all my childish pranks on him. He is the most childish daddy you will ever see, but who cares? We make a great team.

Thank you for buying everything I've ever wished for, and these random things mean more to me than possessions, they are a mark of your intense love for us, and I really appreciate that. I love your spontaneous reactions, and your silly actions (which are paralleled by yours truly :P).

I've called you a thousand nicknames and you'd laugh them off.

Above all, thank you for being my father. My dearest daddy in the whole world whom I'd stick to like irritating bubblegum (as quoted from dearest mama).

What if it all ended on the note
of the blooming of a single white rose?
Pure, innocent.
When we demand no more topping of it
With flamboyant red and blue colours.

White roses are a joy to unwrap. (: スカーイちゃん、本当にありがとう。楽しいです! 久しぶりね! The rain's been pouring down real heavy today, and at 1pm it looked like 7pm instead. 恐いよ!! I'm starting to miss school real badly. :(

All the teachers whom I love, Happy Teachers' Day, thanks for all your guidance, love and care, shown in so many different ways. I apologise for the trouble I've ever caused. Oh, and especially to Mrs Gan, who has influenced a huge part of our (or at least mine) JC lives. (: Your love and care is truly appreciated, and I'll remember the hugs greedy little me got from you ! :P

Ah, it's time to go copy notes into my literature notebook. (I need another one, which I forgot to get today.) Still craving for fish rolls sushi (or whatever it's called), and INARI. HOW LONG HAVE I SURVIVED WITHOU EATING INARI?!! VKちゃん、一行よ~ 食べたい!寿司、すし、スシ!…同じの言葉。ハハ!

nonsensical summer.


Like fools chase after
one another in summer
Under that polka-dotted umbrella.

-photos by sylvia.

To walk past the restricted artistic area after school every day has become somewhat a special part of my daily walk home from school. Things might never be the same again, but it is only then that I see you, always sure to sit on the stool with your back against us, intently finishing the art piece you were blackmailed to finish. Which is a very pretty artwork, by the way. So I slow down my pace and watch you a little longer, being sure you would never turn around and see me.

It is only then that I can genuinely look at you and see that you're still alive, and smile like I want to without any restraints. (:

all the white horses have gone ahead.


Snow can wait, I forgot my mittens
Wipe my nose, get my new boots on
I get a little warm in my heart when I think of winter
I put my hand in my fathers glove

I run off where the drifts get deeper
Sleeping beauty trips me with a frown
I hear a voice you must learn to stand up for yourself
Cause I cant always be around

He says when you gonna make up your mind
When you gonna love you as much as I do
When you gonna make up your mind
Cause things are gonna change so fast
All the white horses are still in bed
I tell you that I'll always want you near
You say that things change my dear

Boys get discovered as winter melts
Flowers competing for the sun
Years go by and Im here still waiting
Withering where some snowman was

Mirror mirror wheres the crystal palace
But I only can see myself
Skating around the truth who I am
But I know, dad, the ice is getting thin

When you gonna make up your mind
When you gonna love you as much as I do
When you gonna make up your mind
Cause things are gonna change so fast
All the white horses are still in bed
I tell you that I'll always want you near
You say that things change my dear

Hair is grey and the fires are burning
So many dreams on the shelf
You say I wanted you to be proud
I always wanted that myself

When you gonna make up your mind
When you gonna love you as much as I do
When you gonna make up your mind
Cause things are gona change so fast
All the white horses have gone ahead

I tell you that I'll always want you near
You say that things change my dear

Never change

All the white horses

the alone time (again).

Am sick today, so shall cut down on the ambiguous lines. Random photos I took when I was alone.

This was somewhat hidden behind the kitchen window. Stretched out my camera and found this. (:

Totally unedited photo. My first unedited photo x) On the same day, I watched the windchime at the kitchen after my mum went to work.

On the way home alone from the study time with Faith. Very shaky because whenever I use the "Program" function to adjust the lighting, I can't hold my camera steady for 3 seconds. Shadows on the ground. (:

The tealight lamp I got from Ikea. I changed its position to the LOTR "table" between the computer room and the master bedroom. It's really beautiful during the 5.30pm - 7.30pm time of the day because it's the point where it is not yet entirely dark but not bright either.

So this is the top of the LOTR "table" now. (:

my summer alone.


You could be happy and I won't know
But you weren't happy the day I watched you go
And all the things that I wished I had not said
Are played on lips 'till it's madness in my head
Is it too late to remind you how we were
But not our last days of silence, screaming, blur
Most of what I remember makes me sure
I should have stopped you from walking out the door
You could be happy, I hope you are
You made me happier than I'd been by far
Somehow everything I own smells of you
And for the tiniest moment it's all not true
Do the things that you always wanted to
Without me there to hold you back, don't think, just do
More than anything I want to see you go
Take a glorious bite out of the whole world

summer is here.


9 seconds clip of the windmill spinning. xD

Got it at Meidi-ya's mini Natsu Matsuri. :D I wanted to get them last year, but when I decided to get one, they were already gone by that time. キレイでしょう?? Me and Vanessa spent some hours at Liang Court doing our usual stuff, and we realised we haven't been there for very long, because... MacDonalds' totally became a CAFE ! No actually it's still Macs', but they renovated the whole restaurant. Actually... It looks classy and comfortable but it removed the old feeling of studying there.

We found lots of Japanese sale postcards for 50cents each at Kinokuniya. Whoo! (Siti's habit is getting to me.) I got stationery. Two more volumes of 「NANA」, CHEESE STICKS <3 and that windmill of course. :D

racial harmony day 2006

This is absolutely the best (although the shortest) Racial Harmony Day I've ever had. Finally we wore costumes. (: Vanessa and I got to wear 浴衣!! In a funny way, for once, I felt like we were a class.

i hope you frown (but i know you won't)


I don't think staying far from school is a fantastic excuse to shirk off responsibility to go to school. If so, you might as well not go to school every day. And among everyone whom I asked whether they were going to school on Sports Day or not, the line, "I live so far from school, YOU live so near to school." came out so often at me that I got very very very very very pissed off. But of course no one could tell on MSN. No doubt it is a fact, but for the past year and half this excuse has always been shot at me, so often that I wish wish wish I chose some faraway JC like CJC.

You tell me, "I really want to catch up on my sleep." But I don't think that people who live nearer to school DESERVE to wake up earlier, have less sleep and leisure time just to watch people run on the track and reach home with migraine. And if you tell me I can wake up later, you're wrong. I don't get to wake up at 7am. Wy should I deserve less rest and get doubly dark eyebags than the rest of you?

I am not a nice person, really.

So, not even deep down inside but right outside,
I wish you all would get punished.
But I know you never would.
And I'll just continue to sulk.

I WISH WISH WISH WISH no one knew I lived so close in proximity to the school.

On a happier note, look at my new stickers.

Feeling very 不甘心 about the CCA relay results as well. Track should've come in first but due to a last blunder they got disqualified and Esther injured herself. grr. ahbu heartpain also.

...Actually it's just a compilation of the photos I've taken, mostly of the clouds inside. Playing with Windows Movie Maker again.

manfa, uploaded for you. :) My first 中島美嘉 song ! [CLICK HERE]

Finished 「NANA ③」! When I saw the movie I really hated Shouji because he appeared to be such a jerk, but the manga brought out the fact that it wasn't entirely his fault, and he was actually a 優しい person. Besides, he looks much better in the manga (as do all 漫画の男 do).

見て !


Yesterday's clouds. And I wasn't productive again. I finally got The Rainbow Star single! I like the first two tracks, 「The Rainbow Star」 and 「いきてゆくことが」, but the last track wasn't my taste. It's summer time and he sings "Merry Christmas" But for 「いきてゆくことが」, when I plugged in my ipod and closed my eyes to listen to it, I got goosebumps because I felt like someone was creeping up behind me.

I am sick today ! Was so determined to get up and study hard today but all my determination's gone.

Who can think of a worse name than 「kitty GYM」?! So... so... *speechless*

The photo above is exactly what I saw when Esther messaged me to look at the sky yesterday Below are edited photos. (:

I was looking for some waste paper and grabbed my old 8DAYS magazine and tore the last page out. I found the All-Purpose Pow-Ka-Leow Grade Correction Request Form. OMG I love the last pages of 8DAYS forever. Click on the 'read more' link below to read it. Amusing x) Education and Singaporeans. wahha.

Was out with Skyちゃん yesterday. ひさしぶりね! Bought the second volume of 「NANA」. We went to the Japanese restaurant at Meidi-ya to eat. (: The cakes there are すごく美味しい!! Especially the Scoop Short Cake. (: (Why is it called short cake anyway?) You can find the photos in my tuna.be folder. (*refer to side bar.) There was a very beautiful sunset when we walked home. (:

Exams were horrible. Ah. Someone buy me a lollipop. :(

the rainbow star

Snapshots : trackback(0) : comment(0)

this is my tribute to...

To the clouds who watch over me
And let me go on adventures on their fluffy tops

Who remind me of my buddy Esther
I wonder if she's staring at the same sky as I am
Or while I am daydreaming
Is everyone else studying?

All I ever wanted to do
Was to sail on a cloud
Shaped like a walnut
Pure and free of all that mud.

It's unrealistic, yes
But that's what daydreams are here for. (:

I wake up to a full day of lecture notes after lecture notes
Makes it sound like they chase after each other
And Mr. Wonka next door, like a yellow daisy, goes,
"Good morning starshine, THE EARTH SAYS HELLO!"

We all need so much more colour in our lives
Won't you paint that rainbow with me?

ねぇ くるみ (hey walnut)
あれからは一度も涙は流してないよ (ever since then i haven't shed tears even once)
でも 本気で笑う事も少ない (but I've genuinely laughed many times)
(* This is from 'Kurumi' by Mr.CHILDREN.)

This is my tribute.
Tribute to the things that make life so happy
And problems seems so much simpler.

little red polka-dots !


Vanessa posted a picture of a girl in a red dress with white polka dots, which reminded me of my childhood photo. And when I took it out, I kept whining to my dad, "Why did I grow so big?! I still want to wear that dress!" And my dad laughed at me. For growing bigger. Even when I'm no taller than 151cm.

"he is here."


The dark clouds come
And hovers over us all
The white city turns to grey
But after all the earth still moves
And as we turn
The storm clouds move in the other direction.
Hello to the sun. (:

Boo. I feel tired. I'm having a sudden craving for apple juice, natural or artificial. Someone send me a carton of fruit juice please!

I'm not sure where this path is leading to.
