only 9+ hours left of 2011, doesn’t feel like the year is coming to an end. i had the worst migraine ever along with an annoying backache yesterday and some time before 9pm i felt like throwing up so i got up from my bed and walked slowly to the bathroom and threw up seven times into the sink (which thankfully didn’t choke) one of the lousiest moments in 2011 – and on the second last day of the year no less. but now i’m feeling completely fine TG

decided to sum up quickly the best moments (even the tiny special ones but significant nonetheless) of 2011:
(in no order)
1. orientation 2011 – 30 special individuals i will never ever forget
2. food hunts with b during march/april
3. following rui to look for cards in ion
4. getting top in class, meeting my own expectations
5. sharing rooms with wei, asking her to sit in the bathroom and play my DS while i showered because i was scared
6. whatsapping rui 24/7 when i was away from school
7. TAYLOR SWIFT’S SPEAK NOW WORLD TOUR with charlotte!!
8. catching the last HP movie even though it was disappointing but i remember the excitement b and i had while trying to book tickets online
9. my 18th birthday; cupcake overload from rui&christina and twink, flik flak watch, surprise birthday cake from the girls, pigging out at seoul garden – i don’t know if my other birthdays will ever be as special as my 18th
10. spending time with you
11. ikea who-can-eat-more fest with charlotte (i won, current score 1-0 heheh)
12. watching HIMYM with char, now watching HIMYM will never be the same when i’m watching it alone
13. post prom with the girls

13 things on the list, my favourite number (think i can add 11 to one of my favourite numbers too) purely coincidental

happy new year everybody

just finished reading through all the entries in my planner, found myself smiling at some entries – movie dates with people that i love, pastamania or aston receipts that i had stapled to a certain date to remind myself of what i did on that particular date with a particular person.. january, april, first half of may, june and august were without a doubt the best months of 2011. today is the second last saturday of 2011. the last saturday will mark new year’s eve and i don’t know how it makes me feel. i feel so uncertain about next year, feel like i have accomplished so much this year and yet there are definitely many regrets that i have. my planner is mostly filled – the entries stop after my birthday month and the whole of september and november is left blank. i decided to start writing in my planner for this month, felt like i did not want to forget things that have happened in this last month of 2011.

still there is an entire week of december left blank – 92% sure i wasted that week just watching how i met your mother and TBBT. and now there is a week left for december. right now i can’t decide if 2010 or 2011 was a better year for me, i think the last half of 2010 and the first half of 2011 combined together would equate to an extremely wonderful year for me.. but i guess 2011 has been good regardless of how it will/is going to end in a week’s time

this week was eventful. on tuesday i dropped by char’s place to visit her after her op (hi char i know you’re reading this! silentstalker1993) and we spent 2 and a half hours just watching how i met your mother, lying supine on her bed, afterwards she walked me all the way to her lrt, miss her so so so so so much. wednesday i think i finished season three of himym and at night i saw hae’s tweet about whether anyone would like to have dinner with her at nex. most impromptu dinner date that i have ever done but it was nice, just talking and eating and walking and talking.

on thursday i went out with rach and we claimed our groupon vouchers to get both a classic mani and pedi at a real steal of 22$ (or was it 24$), went to ion (i will forever love the smell of ion) and had japanese curry rice, walked to daiso to grab some drinks and then we walked all the way to scape to check if there was a flea, she bought a three china glaze nail polishes for only 20$ hmmmm maybe i’ll go back to get some one day.

and for yesterday, i met up with an old friend for dim sum brunch and we both ordered duck noodles with soup, steamer baskets filled with ha gao, siew mai, xiao long bao, beef, plates of egg tarts, steamed malay cake, sautéed mushrooms,… there was a family seated at the table next to us and when they left, we were still taking our time to finish all our food, just catching up on all that happened so far in 2011. it was nice.

then i left for home but it was raining, while waiting for the rain to stop i decided to go into the library – been so long since i stepped foot into the library, just for the sole purpose of wanting to read a book. alone, with my earphones plugged in ‘sweet disposition by the temper trap’ was playing and i borrowed the first book that caught my eye.

i sat down on one of the chairs (the library was the emptiest i had seen before, usually it’s impossible to even get a seat, but there were empty seats everywhere) and i read the first chapter slowly. i don’t think i’ve read at all this year, and i miss reading. the first chapter was about how as a child, david would have a routine of doing things (etc. the number of times he brushed his teeth, the number of items he had to carry) in even numbers because odd numbers were supposed to be unlucky. and as i read that chapter i realized i was – ok i am – very much like the child in the story.

not that i am superstitious or honestly believe in these things. but somehow in texts i will never put 6 exclamation marks – this stems from my belief as a kid that 6 is the devil’s number – so all my contacts in my phone if they are assigned any emoji, there will never be a case where there is 6 emoji ever. i don’t like sending texts where they are !!!! four exclamation marks – it’s either 3 or 5. never 4 or 6. as a child my mom would tell me that the number 4 is ominous because in chinese, 4 can be thought of as 死, and that means death.

i am rambling

so i borrowed the book and before i left to go home i walked into FOX kids. i think as we get older we want to retain some of childlikeness in ourselves. i like looking at the accessories in fox kids and apparently yesterday they had a 40% sale so i got lucky

in the end i bought (on impulse) a pink fluffy poodle thing that i think is supposedly a phone pouch but i use an iPhone so it could never fit inside the pouch. instead i stuffed my ez link inside for safekeeping. then i bought a rubber band which is very cute lolol

it is now less than 50 words away to my thousandth word in this post. next year this time, everything will hopefully be a lot more clearer and easier. this time next year i would have printed out a lot more photos and filled up all the white spaces on my wall. feel like this is a post summing up the year, doesn’t feel like the year is finally coming to an end. the other day when i went out with rach we both agreed that after o levels, time seemed to pass by extremely quickly. maybe it’s because secondary school was 4 years while jc is only 2 years.. next year i will be nineteen. i think 17 and 19 is an extremely awkward age to be in. my 16th and 18th birthday was really special..

i think i would really want to stay eighteen forever

i have hit one thousand, one hundred and eleven words – (goodbye)

too awake to fall back asleep. today is a monday, which means that the last seven days can be termed ‘last week’ already. last week felt like a long thousand years, usually the days (especially when you’re on a school holiday) pass by extremely quickly. on monday i spent the entire morning and afternoon cleaning the house and watching how i met your mother and big bang theory. at night i went for prom at sheraton towers. feels like everything just whooshed -literally- by and i didn’t have enough time to let the thought ‘oh i’m at prom’ sink in fully. and then some time at 11pm we found out we missed the bus that was supposed to take us to phuture so we took multiple cabs there. fast forward >>> monday already sounds so long ago ((and boring) although it’s just my unenthusiastic way of typing) far too lazy to go into details.. tuesday brunch with mah girlssssssss. immortals on wednesday. thursday i did a one-time part time job and had dinner after that and finally on friday i finally caught you are the apple of my eye, which lived up to my expectations although i really wished there was a happy ending, even if happy endings are cliched. in all, it was a great week, just summarized in a very deadpan way. maybe it’s because it’s 5am in the morning

i am lying down as i type this, if I tilt my head to the right i can see the moon from my window, it is a full moon to me ((i am half blind).. again) the moon is bright and i always find it comforting that you could be somewhere far away, i could be (i am/will be) missing you but we are both looking at the exact same moon and i know then that you’re not that far away after all

been doing absolutely nothing ever since school ended – with the exception of studying for the last three days – i spent days watching gossip girl, big bang theory and in between the (many) breaks i took while studying i downloaded old disney movies off youtube. started off with watching little mermaid, then sleeping beauty, little mermaid 2 and the last movie i watched was 101 dalmations. it has been raining every single day, the rain comes, it goes, and then it comes back again. my feet are always cold nowadays but there’s something about just watching old disney movies over and over again that makes everything seem a little warmer, a little less lonely

googled some images of my favorite disney couples (whether human couples or not!!) didn’t include lady and the tramp because i haven’t watched that yet… all these old disney movies really really played a big part in my childhood, i think maybe someday i just might decide to have a daughter and i’d want her to watch all these old disney movies and not the current rubbish cartoons that have now taken over disney channel
