"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music."
- Aldous Huxley (1894 - 1963)

*Wanna share a song with you. It's actually a Stevie Wonder song, but the cover version by a Korean singer, Sung Si Kyung, is much better. The name of the song? Lately.

"Lately, I have had the strangest feeling
With no vivid reason here to find
Yet the thought of losing you's been hanging
'round my mind

Far more frequently you're wearing perfume
With you say no special place to go
But when I ask will you be coming back soon
You don't know, never know

Well, I'm a man of many wishes
Hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel my eyes won't let me hide
Cause they always start to cry
Cause this time could mean goodbye

Lately I've been staring in the mirror
Very slowly picking me apart
Trying to tell myself I have no reason
with your heart

Just the other night while you were sleeping
I vaguely heard you whisper someone's name
But when I ask you of the thoughts your keeping
You just say nothing's changed

Well, I'm a man of many wishes
I hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel my eyes won't let me hide
Cause they always start to cry
Cause this time could mean goodbye, goodbye

Oh, I'm a man of many wishes
I hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel my eyes won't let me hide
Cause they always start to cry
Cause this time could mean goodbye"

"Try as hard as we may for perfection, the net result of our labors is an amazing variety of imperfectness. We are surprised at our own versatility in being able to fail in so many different ways."
- Samuel McChord Crothers

*You can plan your life all you want, but there will always be certain things that shape your life one way or another. I guess that is prety much happening to me now. I've always known I dun fit into the typical Singaporean lifestyle; watch movies during weekends, pose as some Beach Boy at Sunset Bay, go to Zouk Out, and wot not. Never in my widest dream have I realised how much my life has changed...and is still changing.

Life's good, though. I have no complaints. I just wish I had been a better son to my parents. That's a huge regret. They have been there for me whenever and wherever, and I've been letting them down time and again. Hopefully, things change for the better. I will be my own man soon. Time to repay my debts.

In the meantime, kimchee, anyone? Heh..

"There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness."
- Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900), "On Reading and Writing"

*I have not blogged for a long time. I've just attended my first lecture of my final semester. I just arrived back from a trip to Sydney and Melbourne last night. I'm in love.

Yeah. I have a special someone in my life. Met her in Sydney, and things just picked up from there. Think we are just right for each other. I have no qualms with that. In fact, I'm absolutely fine with that. Will be travelling down to Sydney to visit her, and will be waiting for her to come back to Brissie to stay for a while. Making plans together to work in her country. That's right. She's not a MerLion. She's a Korean.

Shan't reveal too much about our times together. Let's just say that we are as fine as we can possibly be. This will be the most memorable, and most enjoyable semester ever. Let the good times roll.

"Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are."
- Bertolt Brecht (1898 - 1956)

*Back. So I took longer than expected. I have no regrets wotsoever. It's been one helluva trip, and it's been extremely rewarding for me. I shan't dwell too much into details at the moment. I can tell you this: Snowboarding rocks!

How have you been? Good, I hope. Anyway, we went to Mt. Buller to snowboard. Had a tough time with the lessons on the first couple of hours. Once I found my feet, however, it was smooth sailing. Think I'm pretty much hooked unto this extreme sport. Think I will be spending some moolah to equip myself. Haha. Will be posting some pix soon. Check it out.

Time to unpack and wash some dirty linen. Heh. Did I tell you I will be going to Sydney often this semester? Haha. There can only be one reason..
