The Way We Are;


I'm backseat to your freeway
This could never be safe
Cause, I might get lost in you
I'm just a little bit defeated
I've got my reasons
One being you're just passing through

You know I love you but I'm
Feeling afraid, you never say
One thing to keep me holding on
You push me away

Why do you lie beside me?
When you never have time
And you're fine without me?

And I, think it's pretty unlikely,
That the words on your mind
Could ever inspire me
To stay and love the way we are


Every time you are lonely
Why am I the only one
You come running to
Got me saying that "I love you"
When I know that the truth is
You could trade me for something new

You keep me hanging like you're
So unaware, you're never there
you should know better but you don't
And it's never fair


Somebody wake
Somebody shake me from
The hold she has on me
I'm so afraid
I wanna be saved but what
if she let's go of me

Still in love with this song after replaying it since it was released on Youtube months ago. 


School started on the 2nd Jan, and some of us MJ kids sacrificed our holidays for 3 days to go to the 2 new primary schools in Punggol to be OGLs YAYYYYYY! The kids there were so cute la omg. Reached at 7+ to help the kids go up the hall without their parents. Then we practically had NOTHING TO DO until their recess, and WanTing and I were freezing in the library (without books haha). 

It was really an eye opener for me, these kids weren't like us when we were 7. They were more judgemental, violent, tech savvy. I guess all these were brought about by the influence of mass media. But I'm still hoping that they will grow up to be successful people, decent and all. 

This is what happens when you can't decide which picture to post 

Gave up arranging the photos in order :/ Gonna miss SiRui Cheyenne YiAn Felicia JingTing Jamie YingJie Jake and Noel so much. Noel was so cute, he gave Danica his father's email and mother's number so we could contact him. But I was such a pro stalker and I found his sister's Facebook HAHHA. 

1 Diamond's teacher taught them a thankyou song in the tune of Happy Birthday and they sang it for us. So touched (': 

Found a job as ShangriLa Lift Lobby Assistant, gonna earn $7/hr from Wednesday onwards (which is tomorrow!) and all I have to do is to talk to the guests while they wait for the lift, and open the lift doors for them (: Don't like the taste of the working life already. Trying to get a job is so damn hard without experience. I'm so glad for this job opportunity at ShangriLa. It's like, who will employ someone with ZERO experience in hospitality and no degree or diploma in this area. Even F&B be waitress also need experience leh. It's really such a great opportunity and I'm happy with the pay even though I expected at least $7.50/hr. The only sad thing is that ShangriLa is REALLY REALLY REALLY FAR. Really hope I gain alot out of this and work my way into the hotel industry in the future (: 

Used the new eyeshadow Joy bought for me!

#ootd and for many weeks to come

Hello 2013;


Spent the first day of 2013 with my family, but the morning was wasted because we were all still sleeping. Dad drove to Liang Court for lunch at Saizeriya (Italian restaurant). Food there is considered cheap, but the service was not so good, and the food was just acceptable.

There was this set thingy: A small salad and free flow of drinks for $3.90 nett. And this is why I said service was bad. Wanted to asked if the free flow of drinks included both hot and cold drinks, and what type of salad they served. Called for the waitress, she looked at us, and just walked away. And when another waitress came to serve us, the conversation between them went like this: 

Mum: Which salad is served for the set? 
Waitress: Yes
Mum: Yea... Which salad? (flips to the page with the variety of salads)
Waitress: (Flips back to the other page) The small one

WHUTTTTTTTTT? Obviously we know it's the small one right?? As if we cannot read hurhurhur. Anyway, it turned out to be the garden salad which tasted not bad. They have their own salad dress, don't know what it's called, but a little too salty. 

Free flow of drinks included the standard soft drinks, orange juice (mostly syrup), plain water, and the different types of coffee (and milo). & they have bendy straws yayyyyy!!! ^.^ 

Ordered escargots because we felt that it would be such a waste if we don't try it. But you just see the difference between the photo in the menu, and the actual thing. 

But it's only $5.90 so can't complain la hor. It kinda tasted like mushrooms with all the garlic etcetc. I ordered something called Paella (seafood baked rice on hotplate) for $6.90, sissy ordered Squid Ink Spaghetti for $5.90, Mum ordered sirloin steak for $11.90 and Daddy got Black Pepper Chicken (I think) at $8.90. 


Sirloin Steak

Black pepper chicken

Squid Ink Spaghetti 

The Spaghetti was quite good, sissy managed to finish the whole plate so I guess the taste wasn't so overwhelming that will make people sick. The ink made her whole mouth BLACK. Hahahaha she's such a joke. 

No squid ink vs squid ink. She was so trying to hide the blackness LOLOLOLOL
Ordered a pineapple/bacon pizza to share. It's like Hawaiian, but there's bacon. And bacon makes everything taste better (: The pizza was served uncut, so they gave us this pizza cutter thing and we can cut the pizza into as many pieces as we wanted whooo~ 

For dessert, sissy ordered chocolate truffle and daddy ordered pudding. According to sissy, the chocolate truffle tastes as good as Awfully Chocolate's but I don't think so la. The pudding was sweet and niceeeee. Pudding's always niceeeee ;P

Chocolate Truffle.

Went around to shop shop, and bought chocolates from United Chocolate. It's a small kiosk [?] on its on near 7-11. It's $6.50/50g and we spent 53 bucks there which is about 400g worth of chocolates. Bought the heart chocolate, almond coated chocolate and whiskey chocolates. Bought all dark chocolates because it's good for health. Now my sister's in love with whiskey oh no. 

The photo really don't do the chocolates justice. 

Went shopping at the supermarket there and bought stuff for dinner. There super high class, even vegetable also super expensive gosh. 

Sashimi crabsticks! ^^ 


Got Tony Romas ribs too, and all we needed to do was to just heat it up for about 15 minutes. There were instructions on the different methods to heat it up. Super nice, and according to Mummy, except the fact that the sauce was a little too salty, it tasted like the restaurants' one!


COOKED. & it was still sizzling hawt. 

Made Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie for family, abit fail because it was kinda watery, but after added more yoghurt, then it was alright. Used plain yoghurt, milk, honey, peanut butter and BANANA and just BLEND ^^ 

This photo sucks
