Don’t Let Go – Bryan Adams (with Sarah McLachlan)

I can’t believe this moment’s come
It’s so incredible that we’re alone
There’s so much to be said and done
It’s impossible not to be overcome
Will you forgive me if I feel this way
Cuz we’ve just met – tell me that’s OK
So take this feeling’n make it grow
Never let it – never let it go
(Dont let go of the things you believe in)
You give me something that I can believe in
(Dont’ let go of this moment in time)
Go of this moment in time
(Don’t let go of things that you’re feeling)
I can’t explain the things that I’m feeling
(Dont’ let go)
No, I won’t let go

Now would you mind if I bared my soul
If I came right out and said your’e beautiful
Cuz there’s something here I can’t explain
I feel I’m diving into driving rain
You get my senses running wild
I can’t resist your sweet, sweet smile
So take this feeling’n make it grow
Never let it – never let it go

Chorus:
I’ve been waiting all my life
To make this moment feel so right
The feel of you just fills the night
So c’mon – just hold on tight

You with the sad eyes
Don’t be discouraged
Oh I realize
It’s hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness there inside you
Makes you feel so small

But I see your true colours
Shining through
I see your true colours
That’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colours
True colours are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

Show me a smile then,
And don’t be unhappy, can’t remember when
I last saw you laughing
If this world makes you crazy
And you’ve taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I’ll be there

And I see your true colours
Shining through
I see your true colours
That’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colours
True colours are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

Ohhhh
I can’t remember
When I last saw you laugh
If this world makes you crazy
And you’ve taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I’ll be there

And I see your true colours
Shining through
See your true colours
That’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colours, true colours
Are beautiful like a rainbow

I see your True colours shining through
See your true colours
That’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colours
Your true colours are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

I have spent 5 full days at the clinic this week and will do the busiest day tomorrow. It has been great fun running around enjoying myself. Everyone is so good to me that I am sure to leave that clinic twice the size I am! I try not to eat so much since I am not exercising that much, but they keep feeding me – or trying to at least. I see so many people come in whether it be for a regular check-up or for surgery. And yes, of course there are guys. The hot ones? either too old or too young. The latest one is 15 years old. The age where going to a clinic isn’t a dream come true. Name? You’ll be smitten. Aubrey Edward Blackshaw. I don’t know if writing his full name here is a good move but who cares. It was quite funny. He had come in the day before (I think) as he had an infection in both eyes making them bloodshot (like many other patients!). He’s from ACS International. Nah, I wasn’t as bold as to ask him for all his particulars. I stalked him! haha. That sounds weird. No la, just checked him up. Not out. On friendster. How useful. But it really gave me a shock. As in his profile. Shall not elaborate. Anyway, as I was saying, he is one hot guy. Half chinese and half American I guess. The thing that struck me was that he did not smile. At least I didn’t see him smile. But I did catch a smile from him today when I was checking his vision. I must have said something to him cos the corners of his mouth turned up ever so slightly. But the thing that mattered was that he actually could smile! HAHAHA. I am really mean in this aspect.

Okay, to more substantial matters, I have learnt to use quite a few of the machines. And I get to practise my chinese alot. And I mean really alot. And I am picking up some dialect. Just don’t ask me which one. I can’t tell the difference!! We get about an hours lunch break. In that time most of the staff find a quiet room to put up their feet and rest. I, on the other hand, find a room to go through the old magazines and cut out all the pictures for my new scrap book. I know I started a scrap book on food wrappers, but now I am also starting one on fashion pictures. It’s gonna be beautiful! Must show someone who appreciates it when I am done.

Anyway, nothing else to say.

Love to one and all,

It has been a fantastic week. Spent 5 days in ward 74 of SGH helping nurses care for the patients. Real eye-opener. Not every girl’s dream to bathe patients who can’t stand or walk, change their diapers and wait on them hand and foot! But to me: SATISFYING and REWARDING. But is it tiring especially trying to juggle things and ensuring the timing is just right. A fine example is taking patients to the shower and making sure their bed sheets are changed before they come back. Learning how hospital beds are made and learning to speak a second language again is exciting. I might take up Malay. As in seriously and not just learn phrases such as….

1. I don’t know

2. too much to bear

3. thank you

4. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10

But I love it ad everyone so far has been really nice and taught me valuable lessons. Going to do one more week and then I’ll see how my next job in an eye clinic goes before I commit myself to SGH again.

Another highlight this week was Fusion. Very different from the things we are used to. But mighty refreshing and a wonderful time spent with church members. People that spoke were Rev Malcom Tan, Pastor Benny Ho and the Trac President. Anyway, I can’t wait for church tomorrow and Discipleship training and stuff.(((:

Gotta get to bed and have my quiet time. Love to one and all!!

Imagine if the guy who you’re with, or who just likes you, makes something. He creates some picture or model thing and it’s all about you. It reflects you. It has pictures of you and him all over it and he actually means what he’s done. I think that’s just so cool. Sorry, I know this is mighty random. But I saw it and it was so sweet. So meaningful and tangible. And this guy said “girls cheat cos they don’t feel loved enough”. Didn’t hear the part about guys but yea. I don’t know how true that is. Guess I’ve never tried! haha. This is just weird.

ARCHITECTURE! argh.

well,well. Yesterday was a mighty long and tiring day. Started off at home and then went back to school for a visit. Boy, it was good to be back. Must stay longer the next time we go. Had lunch there again and then left for MI. The campus is huge!! I mean really huge and I have never seen so many different colours and school uniforms in one campus before! haha. Spent a while there and started fretting about not making it to SP at all let alone on time. We did in the end and spent an hour there although it was supposed to end at 5p.m we left around 5.30p.m. I didn’t realise how gigantic the place actually was until I came home and looked at the map and the places we had gone to. Everyone had their free ice cream. ‘cept me, of course! After they all got their courses, I formed a list of what I wanted to look at and hollered for Fred to make his appearance and help me out. All in all I got infor on Architecture, Aeronautical Engineering and Marine Engineering. All in all it was fun.

For making yester day sooo much fun and sooo tiring and wet, I need to thank…..

mel, faiz, bekah, fred, eunice, germs and linda!

It’s the first day of school. Not for me, that is, but for everyone else still wearing uniforms. I feel weird about it. Really. I want to go back to school. Just once more, I want to put on that famous polka-dotted uniform and slip on those sloppy white shoes with funny school socks. It’s the only skirt I wear!! (I mean ‘wore’) I want to walk down the road and cross the bridge to take the bus 165 or get into the car and drive past ACSI first before going onto St. Marg’s. I want to run around and act insane and stupid with my friends and eat the familiar food, learn new things, do loads of maths and just be around girls!!! I want to do my bio-metrics and run up all those stairs to visit everyone on every floor of the school or just up to St. John’s Chapel to see old friends. I want to go for flag raising, devotions, assembly, chapel and all the other things. I want to go for PE and CF. I DON’T EVER EVER WANT TO LEAVE SCHOOL!!!!!

But then again, that’s all just a dream, a wish, a want. I can’t have it. Yes, so poly is going to be fun. But not in the same way. Goodness sake! We will have to be with boys!!!!! And don’t you dare, in your time, call me immature or childish. I just…. Oh, I just want to be with the familiar. JUST GIRLS.

One thing I can look forward to today is going shopping. But there’s this horrible feeling of emptiness in my stomach. Maybe it’ll go away and leave me high. Or maybe not. Here’s what I want…

It is a brand new year. Now I am really stating the obvious huh? It has been a splendid year with much mugging and gazillion exams past. I cannot say the past year was especially tiring with the Big, Fat ‘O’ levels but you know what? I am glad it is over. haven’t got much to say today. I am stuck at home with nothing to do but slack and read and play games. Wanted to go out and get my track shoes and tennis racket and even thought of hitting some balls. But I just can’t face it. Not today anyway. I will go out tomorrow with the others. no idea what we’ll do. One thing I do want to do is watch Happy Feet (if it’s still out) and Charlotte’s Web. Oh well, I shall stop blabbing now. Toodles!
