Talk about childhood friends and reunions. today I finally hung out with mr ng himself, David! it's been a good 8 years since we last met at abn amro bank's family days.Does time fly or what? life really is full of surprises...how someone from your past can just pop up into your life again like that. I've always remembered him as an outgoing super-friendly cute n fun fella. ok here's what else i remember :
1. He crooned "everything i do i do it for you" on a karaoke system at the zoo during one of the family days.
2. At a mahjong session our mums went to at some club, we went to the adjacent disco pub and he boogied away like a seasoned tea-partier (those were in then right?) with all these hand moves while a very stiff me was throughly amazed. i reckon we were only round 12 then!
yes e above is absolutely true despite any protests from david haha. anyway, we had dinna and i got to ride on his bike. whheeeeeee! had a very close shave when i went home to change... my parents forbid me to ride bikes but i think she knows now anyway. went to changi village for the first time, had a drink n interesting chat at charlie's corner. david then took me to see e famous transvettites.. one was pretty hot actually! next it was to potblack for pool. there we met his friends chris, jevon, and donna, who also happen to be tomo's friends. small world...well its singapore wadya expect. chris is a professional salsa dancer who takes part in competitions n stuff pretty cool huh.
HAPPY 39TH BIRTHDAY SINGAPORE! ! ! yes i guess i do luv u, despite your size, weather,strait laced mindset, exorbithant car prices and all.Mum threw one of her usual family gatherings at our place. Loved ones, good food, mahjong, plus some wicked funny singapore idol on tv, it all made for a nice national day. Next year i wanna go for the ndp. what a rush it must be to be there right beneath e fireworks!
Joined jamie, eric, michael, samuel, esther and others at kbox after that. we spent a gd last part of our time there bouncing to ole skool cantopop techno type music from e likes of leon lai n i can't rem who else haha.
Sunday 08 August watched "house of flying daggers" with parents n sis...e plot may be abit flat, its just a love story...but oh what beautiful cinematography!! takeshi n zhang ziyi r both so hot we had dinna at lemon grass after.
later in the night i headed to zouk..[-localized nite-] music was excellent. it was eric's last night before he flew back to perth! he got too wasted n left early w/o tellin us! I guess the only downer was seeing tomo n having to act like we don't know each other.. but besides that i had a great time.
Dickson invited me to wala wala's for the live band session.. it was sooo packed! met lotsa peeps who i hadn't seen in a while like xiaoqiang, wang, and jeff. had a nice n chill evening. ok n here's a lil psychological test we learnt too.. a girl sees this guy at her dad's funeral n she's crazy over him. soon after she kills her sista. now why on earth would she do that?? come up with afew reasons...... aight here's the catch. there's no right or wrong answer but if u said "to see the guy again at her sista's funeral"...........
congrats you're a CERTIFIED PSYCHO please see a shrink immediately
after i got home, i was beckoned to zouk (AGAIN) by more calls from friends. i also finally met up with mich n jeremy, e sweet couple i played matchmaker to *kinda*. they're so domesticated now, n jer is a shadow of his former LETS GO PARTEEE self that i thought i'd only next see em at their wedding. anyhow it was a blast as e pix show.
jus talked to my ex koalabear...we're really over over over..to e point he says he can't even bear to see me anymore. sad yet liberated..weird.
Thursday 5th August
Pug jelly's live performance at this bar at boat quay. we later went down to umm Club X for a drink n dance or two hahaa. it was empty and playing annoying eurotrash. e state of boat quay these days...certainly brings back memories though! outside clubX we came across this dude facing the wall n his shadow, dancing like a monkey on ecstasy. it was an extremely bizarre sight, to e point we thought it wasn't ecstasy but insanity. the waiter confirmed our suspicions, but there's a tragic twist...after all his family died in some accident afew years ago he started coming here nearly every night and danced away like that. poooorrrrr thing right! i was overcome with sadness n a strange curiousity.. plus he had e typical skinny geek w thick glasses look....can u imagine?! my heart went out to him. sigh.
my first night out clubbin back in singapore...back at zouk on a wednesday!! i thought i'd feel this big rush or...at least something..after 3.5 months away from e place. it is almost like a 2nd home after all. but NOTHING. after all that mambo n hiphop, it was off to newton with my cancan's darlin rus and his friends. he's a cool guy. i wish him n my best friend all e blessings in e world!
aight...back in singapore..at last? my room feels so familiar yet so strange at the same time. and it is incredibly messy. my head spins just thinking about having to tidying up tomorrow. i miss shanghai already. i thought i'd be happy to be home again but i'm not. i really was kinda looking forward to returning but everything got so good in shanghai making it hard to leave. i started to truly appreciate everything..the energy and vibrancy of the city, the amazing n fun people from all over the world, the wonderful crazy friends i made there, how there's always something new to do or some place new to check out. oh n how could i forget 24hr cashbox KTV? especially the last few days, were abit unexpected but so happy n memorable... did it take just one person to make me miss shanghai so much more?
too bad my nifty lil camera was pickpocketed at xiangyang market so i didn't have a cam for most of my stay there, not until towards the end. btw, u can add 2 phones and a wallet to my list of stolen items in shanghai.
