Plain White T’s Hey There Delilah

Hey there Delilah
What’s it like in New York City?
I’m a thousand miles away
But girl, tonight you look so pretty
Yes you do
Times Square can’t shine as bright as you
I swear it’s true

Hey there Delilah
Don’t you worry about the distance
I’m right there if you get lonely
Give this song another listen
Close your eyes
Listen to my voice, it’s my disguise
I’m by your side

Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
What you do to me

Hey there Delilah
I know times are getting hard
But just believe me, girl
Someday I’ll pay the bills with this guitar
We’ll have it good
We’ll have the life we knew we would
My word is good

Hey there Delilah
I’ve got so much left to say
If every simple song I wrote to you
Would take your breath away
I’d write it all
Even more in love with me you’d fall
We’d have it all

Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me

A thousand miles seems pretty far
But they’ve got planes and trains and cars
I’d walk to you if I had no other way
Our friends would all make fun of us
and we’ll just laugh along because we know
That none of them have felt this way
Delilah I can promise you
That by the time we get through
The world will never ever be the same
And you’re to blame

Hey there Delilah
You be good and don’t you miss me
Two more years and you’ll be done with school
And I’ll be making history like I do
You’ll know it’s all because of you
We can do whatever we want to
Hey there Delilah here’s to you
This one’s for you

Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
What you do to me.

Not that I wanna complain

I’m sick of organising gatherings. Sending emails like 1 week in advance, no one responded with venue suggestions.

So, of course, the organiser had to make the decision right? Since the gathering is fixed on a friday, reservations had to be done early.

All set on Monday. Sms-ed those who didn’t confirm attendance via email. All ok.

And the organiser is feeling happy.

The night before, when all had been set & confirmed, a sudden suggestion to change location -_-

I dunno.. I felt a pain at the heart. Just like someone took a knife and stabbed on me. Not from the back but from the front. The heart felt heavy.

It’s like.. as the organiser, when still in the planning stage, tried asking for suggestions. When all’s confirmed, then someone suggest change in venue. Somehow it felt like someone threw my work back at me and say “redo”. When I know I tried my best to accomodate everyone.

And the msn conversation went out of control.

I wanted to object the change in location, and knowing me, I usually don’t say “no” outfront. I’m more like a weakling. I know I’ll end up following people’s instructions if I don’t say it out. And I did just that. I violent object the change in location. And somehow, the conversation got a bit embarassing in the sense that we’re all good friends. I don’t feel good.

Though the location is changed back to the originally-planned one, I don’t feel comfortable. Like the mood is gone.

But then, from another point of view, this could be a way of telling me that we really are good friends. ‘Coz when you’re close enough, you’ll be treating everyone like family that you don’t care if they violent object or not. You just want to say your piece, even if it’s at the last minute. ‘Coz you’re comfortable with them.

But probably, there could be a better way of putting things across.

Oh well. Hope things don’t turn out to be very akward tomorrow at the dinner.

It’s tiring

Minimal updates, gone missing, lack of response on MSN. But there’s still constant update on Plurk that you can see on the right bar.

What have I been up to?


And more work.

Actually it’s just 1.

But it’s enough to take away my time.

Ansley was back few weeks ago, managed to catch up with him for a short dinner, before he had to rush off to babysit his nieces -.- I think I miss the frequent updates on the 3 gals 😀

I’m hoping meet-ups with my gfs can get more frequent. Guess that’s the only way I can get away from work. Bored with my life.

I need more activities in my life. Like visiting the HortPark, or going prawning. Or more movies perhaps.

On a sidenote, congratulations to Shufen on her official graduation from NUS!

My aunts were at my place yesterday. No idea why they were suddenly so adventurous, knowing that Jiawen is coming back on Sat night, they suggested going to the airport to receive her. o.O Jiawen you must be touched eh! Left the airport only at 11pm after a half hour wait for the bus.

Woke up today at noon with a headache, so irritating that I nearly vomit whatever I ate. Forced myself to sleep and felt so much better after waking up at 6.30pm 😀

Still feeling tired. There’s still a slight heacache, hoping it’ll get better tomorrow morning.

the week

Finally had a chance to blog, even for a short one.

I wanted to write something, had some thoughts just now. But at the thought of being so busy at work, I succumbed to the temptation of reading blogs that I checked out pretty often.

And after reading those blogs, I lost my thoughts.

I’m feeling tired, mentally. Ha.. To say that I love my job. I still do, but in the midst of rushing project, my brain had been at work everyday, weekends inclusive. Despite being on the badminton court, reading novel or playing MapleStory, the brain was still thinking of work. How and where should the logic go. =|

I’m deprived of brain-freedom now. Totally. Even mapling doesn’t help these days.

Gfs are busy with their work, while a good-cum-close gf starting to plan for her wedding next year.


I need to catch up at work. Super steep learning curve I had, and still having. Learning and getting the project to work at the same time. 2 weeks behind schedule, how great.

Work life, I guess, is still under check, just need to buck up. Personal life wise, is in a real mess. Pressure from everywhere. Sigh.

Ahhh I hate it when the many thoughts can’t be brought out of the mind. Makes one feel terrible.

No idea why I keep losing my thoughts 🙁

Time for a break

You know it’s time for a break..

.. when you get nose bleed

.. when you have a running nose that sometimes is a blocked nose

.. when you get an occasional cough ‘coz it’s itchy

.. when you have your eyes half closed while at work

.. when you have an aching body

.. when all the above symtoms all happen at the same time

走火入魔 by Ding Dang & Ah Xin

There’s only one version available. Will post the original version when it’s posted keke

After listening a few times, looking at the lyrics.. I like the lyrics =)


詞曲 阿信

合唱 丁噹+阿信



對不起 剛才我 是不是聽錯

還是我 想太多 想到了昏頭

天氣 不錯 開了窗 吹走臉紅

進一步 退一步 都害怕打破

更不想 在原地 永遠作朋友

給你 線索 也給我 勇敢藉口

下定決心 沈默 就讓沈默 為我們追究

你和我 這一刻 無聲的 耳語交流 卻突然震耳欲聾

一字一句一瞬間 走了火 一天一點一轉眼 入了魔



一步一步 走火入魔

一字一句一瞬間 走了火 一天一點一轉眼 入了魔



放肆一次 走火入魔


一直猜 一直想 一直的揣摩

一直到 你變成 甜蜜的心痛

如果 可以 把如果 變成結果

下定決心 執著 就讓執著 為我們突破

我和你 的小說 這時候 出現煙火 讓情節充滿感動

Down with a cold

Thanks to the Popeyes Chicken on Sat, my throat acted strangely on Sunday night.

Too busy on Monday to visit the doctor.

Finally I couldn’t stand the pain on Tues. Doctor didn’t want to give me MC despite giving me medicine that cause drowsiness?! I still requested for it anyway. Clever me popped by office to take the power adapter, ended up sitting at my workdesk working for almost 2 hours, until the medicine conked me out. I had no choice but to leave.

And clever me went to setup an appointment with SF. Hahahha. Waited an hr plus for her, another hour at the bank before our Sakae lunch at 3pm.

You got it. I was accused of chao-keng. Thanks Reenz.. lol

I reached home only at 6pm, feeling drained. Took medicine and plonked onto my bed, waking up only 13 hours later.

Darn, how come I felt worse than the day before?!

Another visit to the doc, another clinic this time. I must have an affinity with Dr Lim(s) this week, both my doctors have the same surname. Today’s doctor, Dr Lim CW is good. He was the doctor who attended to my wart request few months back, and he bothered to ask me today how was the wart. 😀

And yes, he forced me to rest by giving me MC. After explaining what I was down with. Common Cold. Which anti-biotics won’t help in curing it. (That explains why I didn’t get any antibiotics the day before too). Common Cold is a virus. Unfortunately, there isn’t any antiviral medicine around. So the best way to cure it, is to have enough rest. Let your body rest, and your body will fight against the virus.

Wow. Those were his exact words.

Thankfully, I slept through the whole afternoon, 5 hours of sleep after lunch. Feeling much better.

Just took another dosage of medicine (that’s like an hour ago, hoping it won’t act up before the show ends at 11), I can now feel the drowsiness coming.

I think as long as my brain has got something to do, I won’t feel drowsy easily. Maybe that’s why it took the medicine 1 hour this time round.
