Spending a hot hot afternoon in Sentosa

23 September 2008

I parted the curtains to look
upon your retreating figure through the carpark
and saw you beat a straight path
right into a kerb
I shouted your name and you turned back
(in the middle of a text message)
laughing and said
"Did you see that?"
and my shout of "take care!"
rang hollow around the neighbourhood.

Right now there's nothing I want to do more
than to sit on a rooftop and gaze at
nothing but other grey rooftops and
crumbling brick walls
in absolute silence
but the truth is that there's no such sight
to be found in Singapore
and then I wonder why I'd always gone on
and kill myself yearning for random intangible things
like an atmosphere
or human actions which would strike one as
poetry in motion
or sighs that encapsulate all the bewildering loss
one can feel
and for that moment upon hearing The Sigh
where you ache so bad to hug the person
emitting it but refrain because

I really actually want to hug your soul.

(Love the first song but wait for the second one too, it's a beauty.)

There's a house across the river, but alas, I cannot swim
And a garden of such beauty that the flowers seem to grin
There's a house across the river, but alas, I cannot swim
I'll live my life regretting that I never jumped in.

There's a boy across the river with short black curly hair,
He wants to be my lover and I want to be his peer,
There's a boy across the river but alas, I cannot swim,
And I never will get to put my arms around him.

There's a life across the river that was meant for me,
Instead I live my life in constant misery.
There's a life across the river but I do not see
Why I should please those that will never be pleased.

There is gold across the river but I don't want none

Gold is fleeting, gold is fickle, gold is fun

There is gold across the river but I don't want none
I would rather be dry than held up by a golden gun

Saying 'work more and more' / live more, have more fun

- Alas, I Cannot Swim
Laura Marling

At the top of the flight of stairs in the middle of the school canteen, if you pause and look across the masses of heads bent over plates and bowls, you can see a strip of sea in the distance. Cobalt blue and glittering.
I have always felt like diving in.

我要的生活只有那麼一種 卻無法一個人點滴的過
直到今天還不能放開昨天的手 誰來救我

Our saturday soiree in Botanic Gardens

Munching on tuna wraps, grapes and plums

Vanessa was resident DJ

Zee's refrain of the night was: "I'm so full."

Two stars on my face for our devendra/gypsy child theme

Sunset brought out the muaves and pinks

Tealights are a certified fire hazard

The brownie cheesecake was finger-lickin' good

And with nightfall, out came the vices

Lately, I've been rather fixated on this urban outfitters model, who is pretty much the epitome of beauty to me.

If anyone knows what's her name or other info about her, please email and let me know!

about me

I lean my head slowly to the side, reflect on the camellia on the moss of the temple, reflect on a cup of tea, while outside the wind is rustling the foliage, the forward rush of life is crystallised in a brilliant jewel of a moment that knows neither plans nor future, human destiny is rescued from the pale succession of days, glows with light at last and, surpassing time, warms my tranquil heart.
