Confession - I am realli sorry that i have not been reading yr blog.. but i really dun know why and wat comes over me.. prob bcos i dun usually go to multiply site.. but tonight, i juz went into it and was checkin out yr page.. then realised that u do write in yr blog.. so i was reading through all the posts that u had been posting.. and when i came to the one when u wrote for the CNY... i really cried... cos i am really touched and i felt so bad, guilty and honestly.. i remembered that day when we msned and u wrote tat u miss me.. i was already crying in front of my laptop while continue chattin wif u.. bcos tat was the st time u said tat to me... ;)
And of cos i can still remembered when i called home on the CNY when i was @ london, i was crying too, while standing @ the entrance of the church tat i went with Ruth's parents.. of cos i managed to sound happy and excited talkin to all of u via the hp..
I still think tat i have made the right decision.. cos if not, u, me and kaifang might not realise how much we will miss one another.. how strong we can be and we can grow.. its after coming over here, then i realised how blessed and fortunate we are in singapore.. and spoilt..
Oh well, i always put myself in this kind of tough and hard situations, forcing myself to grow.. i juz wanna experience life as much as possible, as full as i can make it be.. because i dont know how much time i had left..
Who knows? I dont realli care abt that though.. ;p
PS. i miss u too, a lot a lot a lot a lot....
You are The Empress
Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.
The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.
The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

We only got to see this map of the mountains after 'climbing' it on the day before... it was then i realised that it was really a long 'walk' we had.. unbelievable..
We were supposed to go to the Lugnaquilla Mountain, which is the highest mountain in Leinster and the 13th highest peak in ireland.. Ross and I didnt manage to reach the top as the mist was coming in and covering the top of it.. the pic is in one of the slideshows earlier.. wel, we're not too sure if we had reached Clohernagh / Corrigasleggaun.. but i believed that we could have only reached Corrigasleggaun.. although we do seemed to be not too far from the 'Lug'.. but i had learnt that things that seems near, it doesnt really means its tat near... hahhahahah.. especially in the mountains...! anyway, if its not because of the mist, Ross would have pushed me furthermore to reach to the 'Lug'.
Through this mountain hiking / climbing, or watever u call it.. i've come to realise tat this type of mountain climbing is not my stuff! Considering that we are both not properly equipped, not properly dressed as a hiker.. i really hate it when i am not fully prepared for this!!!! I hate it when my feet went down into the pool of mud, it was totally disgusting when u can feel the cold and mud in yr feet.. stepping into the mud feels like stepping into a big pool of shit! and when u can see the shit of the sheeps everywher in the mountain.. and prob cows' dung too.. i realli dun like to let my imagination run too wild!!
But thankfully and honestly, the air @ the mountains is surprisingly clean and fresh! I cant smell anything of the animal wastes, as i've real sensitive nose.
A real unforgettable experience.. i have never been so easily giving up on anything before.. except for this.. i wanted to give up continuing the climb a few times.. but Ross is the one who is very encouraging and kept pushing me to keep on going.. jesus.. he is real determined.. and he has been very patient with me along the way while i was cursing and swearing.. not really cursing and swearing in tat sense.. but stil, i felt really bad about it.. I am realli not prepared for that kind of hiking.. i felt so unsafe.. i knew something is not quite right when the owner of the B&B that we're staying, Sean, was asking us if we have the map and compass.. obviously, we 2 ignorant new timer hikers with nothing in hand.. he seemed a little worried and kept reminding us to come back dwn if we see the mist. So, frm that moment on.. i was not really that happy about the hike.. But stil we did went up quite high up til we see the mist.. and while we're on our way back dwn, we met some hikers, and they told us that we're actualy quite near to the 'Lug',, which is kinda comforting (for me)..
Going up the mountain is whole lot easier than going dwn.. as the path is much more muddy, slipperay and steeper.. of cos, we still made it back. ;) Dinner @ the B&B was totally fabulous and delicious!! Was really tired from the mountain climbing that i fell asleep @ 11pm, with a little red wine @ dinner.
On the next day, while we have almost the whole day free til we can take the bus back to dublin, we went to the visitor center of Glendalough and did a little tour of the glendalough.. hence the 2nd album from this trip.. ;)
And again, almost a whole day of walking/trekking.. seeing a whole new perspective of the beautiful nature in glendalough on a more structured pathway. And this time i am the one who is not tired and not requiring rest.. lol
Although my thighs are aching, and even my tummy muscles.. i just like to keep on walking and dont seems to be able to stop. ;)
Even when we got back to dublin after abt an hour bus ride.. i still go to the salsa club and danced til abt 2am..! kekkekeke.. i felt great!
i really love this feeling when my muscles are aching, with the exercise i do.. obviously the mountain hiking does contribute to my aches.. and that is why i think i would still do this again! but the next time round, i will get a pair of wellies and a raincoat @ least. ;)

What is true friendship?
Who would u consider as a true Friend?
What is Honesty?
How many people are honest with their feelings, with their thinking, with their family and friends?
How many can handle the truth when it is presented to their face?
How many really want to hear, to know the truth?
The world now is so full of deception, that its so hard to differentiate the truth and lies anymore.
Or probably, everybody know how to play the game in the world now, that there's no need to talk abt it or think abt it. It has become a nature.
Coming from one who was a straight-forward, outspoken person, who has learned so much along her way, bumping, hitting on the sore spots of people.. she has learned how to handle and present the truth to people ard her, to the people she cares, to the friends that she holds dearly to her heart.
But seriously pondering abt what the future world will become.. it just dont seems too promising. Looking @ the kids, the environment, the world nowadays.. its does seems a little scary and intimidating. A world full of lies, people full of masks, layers of masks..
Of cos. it might not b as bad as tat.. hopefully. ;)
Many have warned me abt this when i came over to dublin, on my own, and i had already anticipated it when i have make up my mind to set off alone.
Honestly, ther r few times when i do felt lonely, but tat onli last abt a few minutes and i get over it. cos i know my family and friends back in singapore, they are missing me too, prob not as much as i miss them, but hell, all i need to know is that im not being forgotten! Realli thankful for the advanced technology these days, cos its through the internet, msn, tat im still keepin in touch with them.
Everytime when someone ask me abt when am i coming back to singapore for a holiday, and each time i cant give them an answer, i feel so bad abt it too. Truly i want to go back to visit too, but the air tickets are so expensive nad the duration of the flight home.. i seriously think i shld reserve tat for a purposeful reason to get myself on the plane to singapore. ;)

and finally get my lazy bum out in the morning to go for a run, and for the 1st time for the last 2yrs, i ran without my knee guards. wel, its mainly bcos i couldnt find them.. cant remember wher i kept them, was searchin for it yest and juz couldnt find them.. wil get new ones @ the end of the mth, when i get my pay. ;)
so much has been happening around me, for me.. that i dun realli know wher to begin.. my head now is juz kinda messed up now.. right now, i juz wanna soak myself in the warmth of the sun!! ;D
trying to change the layout of my blog.. stil cant get the perfect one.. wil keep on trying..
Thursday, July 12, 2007
but i guess it must be that i have thinking about it so much nowadays that now im even dreaming abt it now..
Dreamt that i am back in singapore, my family and all my close friends are all in it.. it felt so real.. gosh.. the urge of going back is so strong that i am really surprised with myself too.. ..
Guess the fact that my sister's wedding s drawing near each day is not really helping much too.. cos that makes me wanna go back earlier and to know that i cant do that.. and worse.. the weather here is becoming so erratic and unbearable.. rain rain rain. cold cold cold.. wat a Summer dublin is experiencing now..
everytime i walk pass the shopping areas with a big sign of summer sale.. i always secretly cursing and swearing abt it.. wat a joke abt this whole summer sale stuffs..
but wel, i wont let this wet, disappointing, depressing summer get me down for too long..
i wil get over it real soon.. cos ther's absolutely nothing i can do to change the weather anyway..
and pple might juz tel me that i shld hav get used to this kind of crap weather... i hav been here for freaking 9mths.. unbelievable...
|Your Element Is Air|
You dislike conflict, and you've been able to rise above the angst of the world.
And when things don't go your way, you know they'll blow over quickly.
Easygoing, you tend to find joy from the simple things in life.
You roll with the punches, and as a result, your life is light and cheerful.
You find it easy to adapt to most situations, and you're an open person.
With you, what you see is what you get... and people love that!
|You Follow Your Heart|
You're romantic, sentimental, and emotional.
You tend to fall in (and out of) love very quickly.
Some may call you fickle, but you can't help where your emotions take you.
You've definitely broken a few hearts, but you're not a heartbreaker by nature.
Your intentions are always good, even if they change with the wind
|You Are Somewhat Machiavellian|
You're not going to mow over everyone to get ahead...
But you're also powerful enough to make things happen for yourself.
You understand how the world works, even when it's an ugly place.
You just don't get ugly yourself - unless you have to!
|You are Totally Realistic|
"Romance" means you're about to roll your eyes
Seriously, you can do without the sap or drama
Save it for someone who has nothing really going on in their relationship
For you, love is real - and easily integrated into your life
You don't need candles, flowers, or chocolates to know he's the one
Just some stimulating conversation... and maybe a great smile.

Watched this show twice, i had never mind to watch a blockbuster movie twice, especially when there's a super hot, handsome, cute hunk in the movie. ;) Needless to say, the onli guy who bared his upper body in the show is the onli hot hunk tat i hav my eyes glued on. kekekkekekek As always, Jessica alba is hot babe as well, but i personally feel that her tan is a bit too much for her though.
Shrek 3rd, the show that i would not miss! Considering that Justin timberlake is in the movie as well, being Arthie (arthur) and of cos for the whole animated movie as well. Have always been a fan for animation movies.. wel, except for simpsons.. and scooby doo..
As for the Pirates, who would miss this blockbuster movie, starring one of the world's cutest man, Orlando Bloom?
Ocean's 13.. Brad Pitt, George Clooney & Matt Damon, of cos, im in! smart scheming movie, i like the plot of the movie. ;)
last but not least, the two french movies that i watched..
I love La Vie en Rose, a very touching, sad & impressive story for this artiste.. hard childhood, glamorous career, but hard life. proving that its not a easy life at all being an artiste, esp in older times.. or when the only thing u know, do best is singing / acting/ or watever.. havin onli skills in yr life do have a disadvantage.. its always good to be an all rounder or flexible. ;)
