Wonderful Tonight


It's late in the evening
She's wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make up
And brushes her long blonde hair
And then she asks me
Do I look alright
And I say yes, you look wonderful tonight

We go to a party
And everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady
That's walking around with me
And then she asks me
Do you feel alright
And I say yes, I feel wonderful tonight

I feel wonderful
Because I see the love light in your eyes
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don't realize
How much I love you

It's time to go home now
And I've got an aching head
So I give her the car keys
She helps me to bed
And then I tell her
As I turn out the light
I say my darling, you were wonderful tonight
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight

Invinsible - Muse

Follow through
Make your dreams come true
Don't give up the fight
You will be all right
Cause there's no one like you
In the universe

Don't be afraid
What your mind conceives
You should make a stand
Stand up for what you believe
And tonight we can truly say
Together we're invincible

And during the struggle
They will pull us down
But please, please let's use this chance to
Turn things around
And tonight we can truly say
Together we're invincible

Do it on your own
Makes no difference to me
What you leave behind
What you choose to be
and whatever they say
Your soul's unbreakable

And during the struggle
They will pull us down
But please, please let's use this chance to
Turn things around
And tonight we can truly say
Together we're invincible
Together we're invincible

And during the struggle
They will pull us down
Please, please let's use this chance to
Turn things around
And tonight we can truly say
Together we're invincible

Lost In You

Lying wide awake under strange skies

Wanting to call you, but it is late at night

And you're far away, but you are always on my mind

I feel like I'm on fire, nothing I can do

I'm troubled with doubt, though it know its not true

And it's times like these when I am dying to speak to you

Dying to get through, I'm dying to speak to you

Dying to get through, I'm dying to speak to you.

Staring at the wall, I sink inside

I think about it all, I get caught up in my life

I can't think straight, because it's tearing up my mind

I feel like I'm on fire, nothing I can do

I'm troubled with doubt, though I know it is not true

And it's times like these when I am dying to speak to you

Dying to get through, dying to get through

The more that I think how I need you

The more that I think, the more it seems true

And now it means more that I ever meant it to

Ever meant it to

Lying wide awake under strange skies

Wanting to call you, but it is late at night

And you're far away, but you are always on my mind

You are always on my mind

You are always on my mind

You are always on my mind

You are always on my mind

You are always on my mind

You are always on my mind.

So its been one and a half weeks into my formal employment as an Insurance Executive at XinJiaBo Airlines (pardon the translation, i dont wanna be traced. Google is powerful these days). This certainly marks the start of a (hopefully) rewarding career. I cant ask for more, for this appointment has provided me the ideal platform to realise my dreams.

I have always wanted to work in an office, dealing with issues that will have a substantial impact on the company.
I've always wanted my presence and input in a workplace to be of relevance and importance.
I've always wanted my talents to be harnessed and even exploited for the right cause.
I've always wanted to be part of a dynamic environment, working together with fellow colleagues to churn profits.
I've always wanted to eventually be a manager, providing directions and guidance to a group of fellow co-workers.
I've always wanted to be part of an established and huge firm, thereby providing some sort of assurance for a sustained career track. (at the very least, it makes ur CV look good)

First day at work, and I was introduced to my colleagues, who turn out to be a great bunch of people whom I subsequently had lunch with everyday. I was brought to my desk, which is huge and lodged in the middle of an even bigger cubicle...makes me feel damn important la. I was introduced to my assistants, who are like the nicest and most experienced staff around. I was introduced to the huge staff canteen where I can get really good food that's even cheaper than prices at arts canteen in nus.

So seriously, what more can I ask for?

Well of course, not everything is as rosy as it sounds. But for now, I shall just appreciate all good things that come.

On a side note, I must thank the gf for her support throughout this period. The past month was just wonderful. Words cant describe.
Once again I cant ask for more.
thank u!

End of the journey

So this is it..my educational journey has ended.

While waiting for the invigilators to collect my final exam script from us, I sat at the table, and somehow, everything just came gushing back.
From the very first day my mum held my hands and walked me to Yamaha Nursery (I vaguely remember that)....to

-the throes of first day jitteries in Primary 1...
-the countless spelling, Ting Xie, mental sums, CA, Exams....
-Primary 3 streaming that more or less determines your future...
-COUNTLESS tuition, music lessons, art classes...
-Awarded "Most Courteous Boy" award for 3 years running and having to wear that fugly singa lion collar pin everyday (ok, back then i thought it was cool)...
-PSLE that brought so much joy to my parents coz I managed to squeeze my ass into Special Stream...
-Wide-eyed idiot in Sec 1 idolizing every damn senior who are actually idiots as well...
-Taking up Taekwondo as CCA that changed alot of my perspectives and honed all that leadership skills...
-Struggling with fucking Higher Chinese...
-Taking up weirdass courses in school like Mathematics Olympiad enrichment course, German Enrichment course, Chinese Caligraphy...
-Constantly getting nipples pinched in the morning assembly by a 55yr old form teacher for talking...
-Acing my O levels with 7 distinctions and made my parents damn proud that their son is actually not some dumb twit and can actually get a place in NJC...
-Dashing all their hopes by screwing A levels up and having to settle for a spot in FASS (which til this day, i have not regretted a single bit. The opportunities, friendship, perspectives, ideologies, skills gained is priceless. period.)...
-Taking up Choir in JC, realising my dreams of making music, collectively...
-Met the girl of my dreams.. finally understood what a crush means, while deluding myself all the while that I was actually falling in love. gah...
-Met a bunch of cocker classmates that I will always remember....for they shaped my life quite drastically...
-Realising that studying ain't a walk in the park...
-Stepping in NUS as a cynical bastard thinking I've seen the world because of 2 puny years in NS...
-Facing lots of new challenges (read: studies, girls & friendship)
-getting a place in KR...
-completing the 4 year cycle of essays-midterms-exams
-feeling more and more accomplished by writing 5000-7000 worded essays and actually getting As for them
-getting frantic in job searching and hunting
-Finally appreciating what political science means....and that its not just a major, its the perspectives, the thoughts, the ideologies, the skills, the people, the lecturers, and most importantly, the friends.

Of course, the invigilator has collected my script long before i racked up all that thoughts....but its nostalgic nonetheless. I guess everyone has to go through a phase like that in their lifes, and then having to decide what paths to take next. We are no longer part of the programme...the ill-fated programme that kicks in the moment we register for Primary 1...the programme that determines our very next step without us actually making any sort of significant decisions.

I guess right now, I can only savour the moment....this very precious post-education, pre-working period....where i can have the liberty to slack, eat, club, drink, merry-make all i want....

And i just did that actually...went for a nice swim.



Ok...i know this looks abit gay.....
but FUCK IT COZ I'VE GRADUATED BAYBEHH!!!

On exams, career, and beejay

In the midst of exams, we tend to do utterly stupid things. We do jackshit on facebook, youtube, and msn....anything but studying.

And so the honours room has been filled with the familiar tunes of Benny Lava the last few days. Its haunting tunes and lyrics will stay in our heart and soul for days and weeks to come...possibly years. For the uninformed, please do check out this video :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZA1NoOOoaNw

Its the legendary Buffalax at work. His talents are amazing. period.
I've since been kind enough to do some research on my part, and here's the full set of lyrics:

Have you been high today?
I see the nuns are gay!
My brother yelled to me…I love you inside Ed!
My loony bun is fine Benny Lava!
Minor bun engine made Benny Lava!
I told a high school girl…I love you inside me!
I’d love to see you pee on us tonight!
You feel me up with doom.
Quit looking up at me!
You got a minute girl?
The puppy had a fee!
Don’t think I do love herWe’re looking in a pill!
All of them like the bun!
Now poop on them Oliver!
You know the hole to put it!
Your pundit got armor!
Who put the goat in there?
The yellow goat I ate!
(I like to swim in it)
(I like to swim in his)
(BEEJAYYYY)
A nerd to punk a nerd.
I’m bleeding Fucking A!
That stuff is pink colored!
Some day I sell DNA!
This boar ain’t very cool.
You need a Hindi yew!
Got into Seattle.
I’ll lay a friend of yours!
I fought a barber man!
We know what’s in butter rum!
A jet pack… operation…Send him the crazy Hindu!
Whatever! My Sadist!All baked and cooked alive!
I lick you… Belinda…The ninja made a movement.
Tell Donna… No collar…I’ll do what body loves!
I put papaya there.
You love me inside there!
Have you been high today?
I love you inside me!

Now, someone pass that dude a Grammy.

On a more serious note, studying in the hons room has never been more exciting.
This semester's studying season kicked off with an episode of cheese.
I shall not elaborate the significance of cheese, for it is exclusive to the pact made by the cheeseboys which include me, sean, kel fu and jit. However, on the insistence of some other curious members, we have since inducted them into the gang through a series of vigorous initiation process. Those who have been "baptised" recently includes Hock, Damien and Lincoln.
The bottomline is, Cheese has made a tremendous impact on our lives more than we can ever imagine. Its fresh and it crumbles in your mouth.
For a free sample, pls drop any of our members a line.
