I should be sleeping by now..
But since i made the promise (and broken it many times) to revive my blog even with random thoughts so here it goes..
Tomorro is my first day at school!
been here for like 3 weeks already and at last school starts officially for me.. Yay!
i should be glad i am studying again especially since there will only be 3 days of school and my timetable is awfuly empty compared to others. BUT i got this tugging feeling that once uni starts assignments and work will all be pouring..
See how the first day goes then.. :)
Side update on life in Perth.. i've kinda settle well into village even gotten a new nickname that rocks.. My new nickname is TIGER.. not sure how it came about after the night out at the casino club on CNY eve but its cool.. hanging out and eating at the other units and even met the few singaporean (*at last) in the village.
Lots of events coming up, heard there's a beach party coming up this weekend! Cannot wait! will post more pictures soon.. meanwhile check these (photos)

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes: and leap!
It's time to try
I think I'll try
Kiss me goodbye
I am defying gravity
And you wont bring me down!
I'm through accepting limits
''cause someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I'll never know!
Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well, if that's love
It comes at much too high a cost!
I'd sooner buy
Kiss me goodbye
I'm defying gravity
I think I'll try
And you wont bring me down!
glee cast version - defying gravity (from Wicked the Musical)
Its been a few days already since i reach Perth, still a bit daze, a bit missing home and trying to get use to the culture here. Its not as if its the first time i'm flying alone or been in Australia but it is still dawning on me that i'm finally here for my studies.
Even to the last min at the airport i was thinking, maybe i should just turn back now and lead life the same way I'm so darn used too..
My uncle's wedding here in Perth in September, my best friend studying in UK, my ORD from army. Somehow it just dawn on me that
You just have to move on in life!
You have to keep moving on, move out of your comfort zone, accept changes and make the best of these changes in life. No longer are we in the times where we keep waiting for things to happen, we have to want and fight for these things now. And yes, I am Defying Gravity!
On the side note, everything fine for the moment. Thank you everybody who came for my farewell party, my family who also came to the airport to send me off.. Already check into my room and its surrounding quite nice. Bought a bit of stuff, new alarm clock radio with ipod connectivity, lots of groceries.. it doesn't feels like home but it sure have to be for the next 3 years.. I bought pineapple tarts yay!!
i feel happy that i'm reviving this blog too, I've always made myself super busy and here I am slowly relaxing and therefore can type my blog hehe.. kk will update more photos when i have time!

a very belated post.. post is very photo intensive, yup anyway the month of december had been really super fun, all this especially with the company of them..
finally! after months of planing and anticipation, we are on our first holiday together.. in fact the idea had been around for a long time already since we were way back in poly.
so here we go.. leaving singapore for kl on the 19 for the 4 days trip
immediately after checking in, we headed straight to Jalan Bukit Bintan for shopping lol.. the entire place there is almost exactly the same as singapore's orchard road with shopping malls very similar in nature with ours.. Pavillion is to Takashimaya as Time Square is to Queensway/Far East Square.. Prices there are generally the same too although the exchange rates helps alot.. But like all shopping trips.. its the hidden bargains and discounts that gives it all its thrills.. heh..

The "I Am BACK" Post
My Gosh.. I haven been blogging in ages..
Its been so long.. i think that this little corner of the www really had cobwebs lol..
Despite the constant urging of my friends who faithfully (thank ya) reads sobrandom, i just don't have the drive or time to update the blog.
Perhaps its the fact that there was really nothing interesting to blog.
October - As usual, the month went busy awfully slow, tiring and boring. My birthday month was plague with army duties, sweeps and burnt weekends. Work Work Work!
10 Nov - Finally after not meeting up with them for such a long time, the gang met for lunch at Big Splash. Under my suggestion! :D
Cuz of my army details, i travelled by ECP quite often and kept passing by the newly renovated Big Splash. Wanted to explore the place a bit more but it was raining that day.. in the end we decided to just stay in Sushi Tei. So we celebrated our oct&nov babies birthdays all at once heh.. after that we then headed to TCC at suntec to discuss on our KL Trip.
28 Nov - Watched Cape no.7 with Sihui.. Suddenly decided to call her out and lucky she was free to join me for dinner. Movie was also unplanned but since we were at north point we decided to check out what shows were showing. Lucky her.. she watched almost everything available 'cept City of ember and Cape no.7. The movie's actually really good and its themes are really heartwarming. Makes me wanna go to Taiwan for a holiday..5 Dec - Natasha's 21st Birthday was a blast.. It feels good to be around people who simply likes you just the way you are and enjoys being around with you. Anyway.. Nat just came back from melbourne and she invited the few of us over to a very last min 21st party/sleepover at the grandcoptorn hotel.. And as usual the Musical Bunch are a fun bunch of people to hang out with! : )
16 Nov - Avenue Q the Musical!
Finally.. after waiting for so long I got to watch the musical with Jesmine, Mei Fong and My Sis.. haven met Jesmine for sometime so it was nice to be able to catch up with her.. :) The musical was fantastic!! very obscene and yet very relatable as well.
sleepy heads at the sleep over
Happy 21st Nat!!
6 Dec - Yuying Secondary Passione III
The performer inside me has been screaming let me out for a long time and at last i'm back on stage.. Playing for the Yuying Alumni Winds has brighten my day for the past weeks. The band has changed so much over the pass years and i'm happy for them. Come to think of it, it's been almost 10 years since my music journey with YYCB started in 1999.. heck that i was the oldest(strikeout)eldest member playing that night.
me and audrey!
Melissa.. my junior and YAW partner
The adorable Tian Fu(now in japan)

Countdown to KL Trip
