the past week

The retreat with the girls (plus ben n eve) was great. Few days of catching up, lazing around, just enjoying my sisters' company...one of the biggest highlights of my trip back so far. Bowling was fun despite me losing badly.. :p *shrugs* nevermind, next time perhaps.

Five hrs KTV session on wednesday afternoon. Singing my lungs out. Trying to reach those high notes and those low notes.. I am definitely rusty in singing. Some songs that I attempted includes : "Somewhere out there, Constant Craving (yes, vel..found the k.d lang version in ktv rm), Huan zhu ge ge drama series' songs, put your head on my shoulders, if only she knew, Ai Ne (S.H.E), Too much heaven, whole again...blah blah blah. and the list continues.

It is funny how some songs remain the top of our list..whereas other choices of songs changes as we grow older. In sec sch, our song choices r pretty much inline with the trend during those times. Nowadays, we r singing more old songs (and plus that ktv didnt update their english songs). I hv since acquired a taste of other genre of music compaired to just westlife, backstreet boys and britney spears.

During the past 4 days, i was on a quest to explore Singapore. Visited Wan Qin Yuan, Sentosa, Chimjes, St Andrews Catherdral, Esplanade, Suntec, Raffles Hotel.... Yes.Tour guide for Armand. Singapore isnt that small afterall huh?

Daphne makes a fantastic tour guide. You can start charging other people now. :) We also visited a few more places which "normal" tour guides wouldn't know - the shops where you can find cheap things (toa payoh?), daphne's countless former tuition teacher's house, the west side of Singapore (sightseeing on the MRT), Funan IT Mall, citylink, and a few more shopping complexes.

Not to forget Sentosa is actually much larger than I thought -- wish we had more time. Also met up with R, P and V. I'm glad that I could actually have a decent conversation with R! I tried to find 'Choir Boys' but was unsuccessful. Will keep trying. Didn't get to talk to P much, but I will make amends next time I visit.

Daphne, for all you have done, thank you so much. To R, P and V, I enjoyed your company, and am looking forward to meeting V in April and R around July.

p/s Singapore Airlines won me over - the entertainment system beats the crap out of any other airline I have been on.

I originally thought going out with 3 girls, 2 of them I haven't met prior to that day would be a boring affair for me, but I was wrong.

I can't even remember how our conversation started being too 'techy' that it put daf and peggy off. Especially talking about 'waste' which would really confuse people :)

ok i better stop taking over daf's blog now...
