yesterday was the last day of official school...

a very bittersweet moment... the last service was also my first... i realised this yesterday that at all the other services i was at the viewing gallery waiting to play for the reception... it was emotion-filled... there were like thousands of cameras... there must have been like a few thousand watts of flashes that have gone off in a short span of a couple of hours... there was the teachers singing for us, the student leaders, the prayers, basically the whole experience...

ha, another thought just came into my mind. probably the next official time that i'll be sitting in the hall is on the day of the release of the A level results!!!

oh, after the service, we watched an arts video which was very sweet... every photo was part of our time here.. every one with a story to tell, every one with a wealth of memories behind it...

then came more photo-taking which, believe it or not, lasted for about an hour and a half where everyone was trying to take a pic with everyone that they have crossed paths with over a short span of two years.. actually, some may span longer then that...

our class finally proceeded to Brekos at Holland V... a very tone-down cafe with nice subs... then we headed to Alex's house which was again a bomb... this was my second time there and the house seems to have gotten bigger! not that it wasn't already HUGE before... we explored the house/estate/(or as prashant puts it) palace... we chatted, play pool, com, chess, watched tv.... had a great pool-side dinner...

after dinner, alex's dad gave us a mini-speech about where we stand now... which was filled with wise words from a man who has travelled the world (well, he sounded like he had that experience)... he said many things aout friendship and life after school...

it didn't really hit me till i was walking home alone.. all the emotions came up... i realised that i've made more meaningful relationships in two years then in the past 16 years, strengthen past relationships to greater bonds too...

i think ihave classified the people i will miss into three categories.. the first are my friends that i have made, classmates that i have shared these two intense years with... then there are those who i knew but didn't get to know better... and last but not least, all the other people in my cohort that i didn't know and didn't get to know...

the contents of the countless lessons in AC might not be remembered much, but i will always remember the times spent in school, with all the great beautiful people that i'm so fortunate to have crossed paths with..

and thus now at the final home-stretch towards the A's and towards that crossroads after where we all must invariably part, i cannot help but stand in awe of these two great memorable years that have past. however, i too cannot wait for wat new paths i will take, wat new friends i will make along the way and to wat greater heights these friendships can be taken to...

more then friends, more then words can express
i will always love you...

have you ever considered life and death? wat's life? wat's death? why is everything so transient, temporary, temporal, ephemeral?

i can't express much... just a numb feeling in my chest... sometimes even choking... i'm not asking for help.. i don't know if i can be helped... i just don't know... all my thoughts are scrambled these days... doesn't help that the exams are so close... but then again, what are exams for anyway?

drifting

away...

ha

finally remembered that i still have a blog... a lot of things have happened... developments, more stress and a new chapter of life...

the a's are a less then a month away... and i don't know wat to do with my life after the a's and ns... i want to make violins, if not go into psychology... so many aspirations, so little goals...

two words sum up wat i have been feeling lately.. numb and dumb.. i'm feeling so numb... and too tired to talk....

oh, i would love to go onto the Amazing Race show.. would so love going aroung the world experiencing the various cultures in such a short span... i certainly won't mind the bitching and back stabbing...

i just want to run away... far far away... far far from here... far far......

survived thru the massive 6 hours mega writing showdown... total burnout... i think i'll pass but won't do well for both the physical geog paper and the e4 paper.... ha, at least the lit teachers were sweet enough to give us m&ms...

3 more days before the econs paper... but then mrs c had a talk to us about how we have to remain in study mode all the way to the final a level paper... sigh.. hopefully i can last till then...

lots have happened... like lots... but then mostly on the inside.. well... was a himbo yesterday and went for a tan... slept at the pool side for like 40 mins.... feeling hot today... maybe cos also feeling very tired... ha...

i thot of becoming a violin maker... still considering... sigh...

it's like cloudy days....

sometimes, the sun is shining warmly but at a moment's notice... there would come a cloud that would cover the sun entirely...

i don't know.... thanks to all those who reached out to help me... i want to assure you ppl that... i'm much better now, sometimes still stumbling along but getting up most of the time.. thanks colin you were there almost every morning, though didn't say much but still lent your silent strength for me to hold onto... almost feel like a bro to me... calvin, thanks for always being there for me, replying my msgs when i need them most, support me thru thick and thin and ever ready to encourage me... naga, my closest bitch buddy... though i think u'll never see this but thanks for always bitching with me in school... even when i'm down i can't help but start to smile around u... thanks brian for the chats on msn... helped me lots... and to all you other great friends... i can't help but smile whenever i think of all of u guys... you are the best friends anyone could ever have.... ha...

i'm almost over the incident... not ready to love but maybe i'll give eros another chance... ha.. who knows... maybe thru these prelims, i'll get a new start after everything is over...

oh, on a lighter note... i realise that i do like rain more then sun... though sun gives u a great tan, i always find that rain is somehow much more comforting... be it inside with a mug of hot chocolate watching the rain thru the window, or outside, feeling the droplets fall upon my face... ha, i also found out that the park near my place has a swing!.. was taking a stroll last night and found it accidentally... swinged for about half an hour... it was nice...

ha... a big THANK YOU to all u friends again...an ode to u... sorry if i spread the blues around or seemed ever down.. as the song goes...

lean on me
when you're not strong and i'll be your friend
i'll help you carry on
for it won't be long
till i'm gonna need
somebody to lean on

Just call on me brother when you need a hand
we all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
we all need somebody to lean on

lean on me

it's a cool day...

got over my worries.. thought that i was really over it... but then i found out that i was just actually suppressing it... just now after this friend left the bus, the now familiar feeling came back to haunt me... all the way when i was buying dinner and walking home... was actually singing before but now... ha...

well, i'll try to get over this phrase quickly... sigh...

-- Con te partirò.

Sarah:
Quando sono sola
sogno all'orizzonte
e mancan le parole,
si lo so che non c'è luce
in una stanza quando manca il sole,
se non ci sei tu con me, con me.
Su le finestre
mostra a tutti il mio cuore
che hai accesso,
chiudi dentro me
la luce che
hai incontrato per strada.



Time to say goodbye.
Paesi che non ho mai
veduto e vissuto con te,
adesso sì li vivrò.
Con te partirò
su navi per mari
che, io lo so,
no, no, non esistono più,
it's time to say goodbye. -- con te io li vivrò.



Andrea:
Quando sei lontana
sogno all'orizzonte
e mancan le parole,
e io si lo so
che sei con me, con me,
tu mia luna tu sei qui con me,
mio sole tu sei qui con me,
con me, con me, con me.



Time to say goodbye. -- Con te partirò.
Paesi che non ho mai
veduto e vissuto con te,
adesso sì li vivrò.
Con te partirò
su navi per mari
che, io lo so,
no, no, non esistono più,



Both:
con te io li rivivrò.
Con te partirò
su navi per mari
che, io lo so,
no, no, non esistono più,
con te io li rivivrò.
Con te partirò



Io con te.
