hehehehe.shall look forward to my imaginary boyfriend in his army uniform too. muscles and all! HAHA.

no, it’s not social studies or history for that matter. that’s the past (history?). haha.

but yea. been thinking and finally decided to jot this down: we complain way too much. we whine, whimper, complain, sob and mope around too much. i’m not saying we should delight in others misfortunes but sometimes we have to look at them. divert our attention from our ‘problems’ and then we see things in the right perspective. it’s a very simple and obvious train of thought(s) that has been walked through one time too many. but do we actually realise it?

here’s just a few things i remember from a conversation with jie quan.

your mother nags just a tad bit too much. but you have a mother!

you’ve got horrible blisters. but you’ve got shoes!

the aircon is way too cold. but you don’t have to work in the scorching sun!

your school work is too much to bear. you’ve got a school to attend, opportunity to learn etc.!

your roof is leaking. but you’ve got a place to live in!

the food you’re eating is too bland. you’ve got food to fill that stomach of yours with!

you’re running low on cash. at least you have some cash to spend!

you’ve got to go through chemotherapy/radiotherapy/dialysis etc. but you’ve got medical treatment that gives you the chance to live longer!

your light bulb has just blown. you’ve got electricity!

your water heater is’nt working. but you’ve got clean water readily available for you!

the car battery is flat just when you don’t need it. you’ve got a car and AA at your beck and call!

the bus has no air-con. you don’t have to walk for miles!

the interest the bank offers you is way too low. at least you’ve got money to invest!

your room is too small to contain all your stuff. you’ve got more than many other people could even imagine!

the list could go on. but need i say more?

Have you seen the old man
In the closed down market
Kicking up the papers with his worn out shoes
In his eyes you see no pride
Hands held loosely at his side
Yesterday’s paper, telling yesterday’s news
So how can you tell me you’re lonely
And say for you that the sun don’t shine
Let me take you by the hand
And lead you through the streets of London
I’ll show you something
To make you change your mind
Have you seen the old girl
Who walks the streets of London
Dirt in her hair and her clothes in rags
She’s no time for talking
She just keeps right on walking
Carrying her home in two carrier bags
So how can you tell me you’re lonely
And say for you that the sun don’t shine?
In the old night cafe at a quarter past eleven
The same old man sitting there on his own
Looking at the world over the rim of his teacup
Each tea lasts an hour, and he wanders home alone
So how can you tell me that you’re lonely
And say for you that the sun don’t shine?

Have you seen the old man
Outside the seaman’s mission
Memory fading with the minor ribands that he wears
In our city winter the rain cries little pity
For one more forgotten hero
And a world which doesn’t care
So how can you tell me you’re lonely
And say for you that the sun don’t shine?

If one day you discover him
Broken down, he’s lost ev’rything
No cars, no fancy clothes
To make him who he’s not
The woman at his side
Is all that he has got
Why do you ask him move heaven and earth
To prove his love has worth?
Would he walk on water?
Would he run through fire?
Would he stand before you
When it’s down to the wire?
Would he give his life up
To be all he can?
Is that, is that
Is that how you measure a man?
If by chance all he had to give you
Was three words wrapped around your finger
Would that be deep enough
At the end of ev’ry day?
And how will you ever know
If a man is what he says?
Why do you ask him move heaven and earth
To prove his love has worth?
He never gives up
Lets go of his dreams
His world goes around
For his one true belief
Is that how you know?
Is that what it means?

well, yes. how else can someone prove it? i don’t know. i’m not some love/relationship guru. but i do know time means something to me. when you see/talk to someone next to nothing then what happens? does “distance make the heart fonder” still stand? i know i’m blabbering. but i feel like a twit. down right twit. good thing i am single. think i’d suck in a relationship. they just are never secure enough for me.

oh well, on another note, china people are returning tmr. ((: been kinda quiet without the lot. house work has kept me busy. guess i shall try to juggle that and routines at gym? swimming with becca and david is funkaye!!! what with noodles, frissbee and ball. jaha! we dont really swim. more like splash about.

hohum.prep for lunch now.((:

i think i’m really gonna fail ter. meaning im really gonna do badly at my driving test. ))):

had my lesson today. almost 1 month after my last lesson. was bad. ok, so that’s an understatement. but you get the picture right? yup. good thing i was with seah as my instructor. as usual he was really good. must relax a tad bit more.

oh well. attachments are coming to an end. will be out with the girls (smss) tomorrow after work to catch a movie and catch up! haha. miss them like mad. wish i could just go back to the old days. MUMMY!!! IT’S OVERRRRR. )):

shall end here and go get ready for work.

He should have a good and well controlled temper. Does not vent his frustrations on others. Does not blame others for his incompetency. Knows when to joke and when to be absolutely serious. Tries to be patient in all situations. Knows when to encourage and when to reprimand. Can hold a conversation without the presence of words. Knows what’s going through my mind just by noting my actions and facial expression but still asks to express concern. Knows when silence and noise is most apt. Tries to be full of truth and grace. Strong enough to support me or just be prepared to do so. Can assure me with just one look. Can take potentially horrible work hours and still arrange wonderful dates. Whose hand is firm enough for security but gentle enough for comfort. Who dances in perfect rhythm with me even without music. He must love big long hugs.

Most of all we must have the same best friend. ((: It’s the only way the relationship would work. Each of us holding Jesus’ hand in the long walk ahead.

Bonus: Can literally sweep me off my feet. Has a fantastic smile and humour. Is taller than me and loves sports.

Why am I such a dusty window
For your light to shine through?
Why am I just a tiny star
In a sky already blue?
Why do I offer everything
With my heart closed like a fist?
Why do I live like I’m in chains
When You have set me free?
And why do I have to break Your heart
Before I fall to my knees?
I know it’s time to pray for change
Give all I have to give
I want to love You better than this

oh well, some friends are leaving to china for a couple of weeks. makes me long for my trip to the UK in sept. lots of walks in the open, good food, games, photographs and of course, time spent with my family (or part of it anyway). will be travelling there on my own and coming back with mummy and daddy. quite exciting eh?! haha.

attachments have been good so far but im just so tried. i think it’s due to a few factors. gotta get back to taking my iron tablets again. ho hum. trying to get all my skills signed in one way or another. doubt it’s possible but hey, it’s worth the shot right? haha.

not really in the mood for blogging now so i shall just end it here.
