"Mountain Tortoise"

No, am not referring to the terrapins i saw at the Botanical Gardens.  Was referring to myself.  Sigh… “sua gu” old me has not been to the Botanical Gdns since my first trip in secondary school.  The place is really beautiful now… and i shan’t bother to go into details since i’m probably the only person in Singapore who hasn’t been there in years.

Had coffee & a bit of makan there with NTU dear just now, then took a short walk since the weather was fantastic today.  Took a drive aruond Dempsey area too… love it.  Such an un-Singapore place.  🙂

During our chat just now, NTU dear asked why i said i feel like i’m old.  He says 28 is a perfectly ok age to be single.  So i thought i better qualify my statement here.  I don’t feel old as in “time is running out” old… but i do feel that i’ve played enough, had enough of drama mama times, and it’s time to have some roots in my life.

The rolling stone finally gathers moss?

Birthday Celebrations 2007

Yes!  Once again… *drum roll*… my birthday is coming!  Sigh.  This time, i REALLY feel old.  So i’m gonna be 28, am single, don’t think i’m ever going to settle down, but thank God i’m in my dream job with dream colleagues and dream bosses.  Woohoo!

So… the plan for this year starts.. TODAY!

(And i’m late for my first celebration already).

Meeting NTU dear in 26min for my first birthday makan session today, then i got the next 4 Sunday lunches booked with Chewbacca (yeah… he has owed me birthday lunch, dinner, breakfast, etc since 2002 and only paid back one), then come 15 May i’ll probably be having dinner with Iceman (and the people going for Phantom)…

Hey Iceman – are we celebrating on 15 May or another day?

On my birthday itself, 16 May, sigh.  Original plans were cancelled right?  SO, i asked my Singnet friends aka “The Complain Group” out for dinner.  Heehee… played the sympathy card and this is the fastest i’ve ever seen them respond to a dinner request.

17 May i’ll probably have dinner with my parents, then 18 May there’s a birthday bash with AKKK and friends.

That’s the plan so far…. any other takers?  Hehehe… please book your slots now.  ‘Cos i’ll be going for the Grasshoppers concert on 19 May, and will be in Manila from 21 to 26 May. 

Woohoo!

You Get What You Give

Finally met up with my cousin AKKK last night.  Was supposed to meet him for drinks last week but he got sloshed even before i was ready to step out of my house.  Went to O Bar last night and concluded that we were way too old (pun unintended) to be there.  I didn’t feel half as bad ‘cos i was the second youngest in the group so… heh.  Most of the others were in their mid 30s.

After O Bar, we went to this place called Air Lounge i think.  It’s just down the road from O Bar.  Really nice chill out place… saw quite a few japs there.  This is the pub that’s owned my cousin’s friend… some HK fella.  Think i might want to go back again with other friends.  Really nice.  🙂

I told my cousin about ONSer chatting me up.  My cousin immediately scolded me and told his friend Rubie about it, and Rubie opened his eyes wide and told me to STAY CLEAR of ONSer.  Rubie says ONSer is not like the typical player.  He knows how to bide his time and “tarik”… and strikes only after the gal has let her guard down. 

Wow.  Looks like the president of my fan base has a really bad rep.  Haha.  In the cab on the way home, my cousin made me promise him that i’ll never go out with ONSer.  So… too bad ONSer… i can only talk to u online.  Haha.  I always listen to the instructions of my favourite cousin (i’ve looked up to him since i was a kid ok!).  😛

Last night, the group was also waiting for this woman (anyone older than my cousin is a ‘woman’ vs ‘gal’) to join them.  She’s apparently depressed over marital woes and they were drinking at Boat Quay before they moved on to O Bar.  The woman said she wanted to go home to drop off her bag before meeting them at O Bar.  But she never turned up.  She went to Lido Palace instead.  Yeap.  Lido Palace as in the nightclub.  Don’t ask me what pleasure a woman might get out of a nightclub but yeah…. she was there.

After hearing her story, i was telling my cousin, what’s the point in holding onto something that’s over?  The memories are happy but if the current situation is causing only u pain, then u need to let go.  Happiness is a daily decision.  Oh well, i take it as a lesson/ reminder to open my eyes wide when it comes to dating, marriage, whatever.

Here’s a song i just dug up from my treasury.  Heehee.  Enjoy!

 

 

Wake up kids
we got the dreamers disease
Age 14 they got you down on your knees
Souls polite, we’re busy still saying please
Friendnemies, who, when you’re down ain’t your friend
Every night we smash their Mercedes-Benz
First we run; and then we laugh till we cry
But when the night is falling
and you cannot find the light, light
You feel your dreams are dying
Hold tight

Chorus:
You’ve got the music in you
Don’t let go
You’ve got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don’t give up
You’ve got a reason to live
Can’t forget
We only get what we give

I’m coming home baby
You’re tops, give it to me now
Four a.m. we ran a miracle mile
We’re flat broke but hey we do it in style
The bad rich
God’s flying in for your trial
But when the night is falling
You cannot find a friend, friend
You feel your tree is breaking
Just bend
(chorus)

This whole damn world can fall apart
It’ll be ok, follow your heart
You’re in harm’s way I’m right behind
Now say you’re mine
(chorus)

Don’t let go
I feel the music in you, you, you YOU!
Fly ……. high …….!
What lives ……. can’t die …….!
You only get what you give
You gonna get what you give
Don’t give up
Just don’t be afraid to live …….!

Health insurance rip off lying
FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they’re multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You’re all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around, we’ll kick your ass in!

Don’t let go
One dance left
Don’t give up
Can’t forget
