To a very, very dear friend. I’m extremely sorry to hear about your loss. From what I’ve heard, you are amazingly strong. *hug* We’re all always here for you. I love you. Words can reach no depth.

An MSN conversation with a good girlfriend from NUS, who’s currently single, while discussing life and marriage.

Me: Are you waiting to fall in love?
Friend: You could say that.
Me: That’s a sweet thought.

Enveloped. Breathless.

Ever had the feeling of being wound up too tight?
Like a gust of air around you
Rapidly morphing into tight binded rope
That winds round, and round your entire being
Your heart is stiff
Your soul still
Your mind battling- raging against thoughts and thoughts and thoughts
That invisible rope, burning and stinging
With your every move of resistance
Every breath of dissent
Every gesture of heat
It hurts.
It envelopes.
It suffocates.

Updates #01 to #04

#01- The mouth is healing at its own pace. I still can’t talk and laugh as per normal. I can’t open my jaw, it hurts at deep crevices in my mouth I never knew existed. I’m bruising slightly where my upper and lower lip meet at the right, the skin is also healing a little, and browning. All I can do is to smear Passionfruit Lip Butter around my lips. Talking about Lip Butter, I must run along to my next point- Body Shop.

#02- The Body Shop has an evil plot to reduce whatever little dollars and cents I have to a heap of products. Well, not that they aren’t depleting at a fairly hasty rate, but my financial resources are also depleting at an alarming rate. I spent a little today because firstly, I have a 20% birthday month off, and secondly there were a few things I needed urgently. One was the Bath Brush and the other was the Vitamin E body lotion because of my tattoo. *gasp* Next bullet- my tattoo.

#03- Quite a few folks know about this I believe, from well-meaning friends’ blogs, but well, this is what the whole hoopla has been about on my blog regarding the protected entries. I still can’t give away the passwords, so I will start on my tattoo now. The Highpriestess is officially inked! It happened last week. I have a grand fairy sitting at the bottom of my spine, with brilliant red wings, seated on a red rose plant, and breathing in the perfumes of another rose bud. It is a little bigger than I expected, but apart from some facial features I’m not 100% pleased about, I am very happy with how it turned out. Gorgeous. Graceful. Strong. Indepedent. Fragile. Beautiful. Emotional. Brilliant. I love her. I’m thinking of a name for her, but I haven’t decided as yet. So, the thing is, I have to keep moisturising the tattoo so that it doesn’t dry up. The antiseptic cream which I have to apply twice a day is not really enough, and during the day I have to smother it with Vitamin E lotion- which realllllly speeds up the healing process. I wish I had done it earlier. About 1% of the outline is coming off a little, but I suppose that is what the touching up is for 2 weeks from now. So yup, had to load up on Vit E!

#04- Well! That’s about it. I’m gonna go watch TV and slurp (without chewing) instant noodles that SH has lovingly whipped up. Toodles for now.

Awake too early! So instead of doing proper things like cleaning up my room and etc, this is what I choose to do. Enjoy. Wait for the videos to dl  and it will be worth it.

Hahahahaha

Little Children and Card Games

The day was pretty good. Spent at Vivocity.
Watched Little Children with Drink Boy, who got me a very pretty red and white skirt for my birthday. And still owes me one more. cough.
Then we got the book Little Children to read and compare with the movie.
See what intellectual people we are?

Back to the movie. I liked the movie. A big plus was that it had an omniscient, 3rd person narrator.
It made the movie feel like I was reading a book and seeing on big screen what I was visualising in my mind. It was interesting the way the parallels were drawn with the theme Little Children. *spoilers ahead*

We have the Paedophile who literally is after little children. But even Ronnie, the said paedophile, is a child himself, going to the extremes in the end just to be a good boy. The amorous cheating couple, little children themselves, seeking selfish pleasures, putting all at risk. The movie was good, hit some raw nerves, reminded us that it was fiction, yet it was something about the narrator’s role that made it seem he was narrating a real life incident that happened right next door to all of us, or perhaps even to us. I just have to read the book. Thus, the impulse purchase.

Well, moving on, after the movie, met up with three of my terribly wonderful people.
We first had dinner- which would include me sipping my fish soup at a snail’s pace and gulping down Chrysanthemum tea.
And then ended up at the Sky Roof  playing Tai Ti and eating Chocolate Muffin (mashed for me) and drinking Strawberry Milk.
I finally learned how to play Tai Ti. For nearly 8 years, various people have struggled to teach me Tai Ti. Even Shan. But with coherence and patience, Lav and CH explained the game to me, and I actually won one round! Whee.
Unfortunately, no photos.
But I had tons of fun. It’s just these little simple joys that make life that much more worth living.
I love them all so much.
I don’t think they have any idea how much, but well. :)

I realise that some of my friends who have yet to meet up with me are asking what I want for my birthday. I have only 2 things on my wishlist now. One is a little hard on the pocket. And the other is well, a little reasonable. ;)

1- The ENTIRE collection of Lemony Snickett’s A Series of Unforgettable Events packaged oh so prettily.
2- A pair of sunglasses.

So much for my wishlist.
I could throw in a few more. Jewellery! A Fairy necklace, or a necklace with the writing of my name in plate. Fragrance! Any JPG or BabyDoll by YSL. Of course, this is now my girly greediness talking so I shall go sleep. Eyes are heavvvyyyyy.
