Christmas in Singapore

It's Christmas' season already in Singapore! I love Christmas, it's one of the holidays I love the most. No, wait, it's the only holiday I love.
Anyway, the Christmas ambiance is felt strongly here in Singapore. Most of the shops already have they're Christmas tree installed, and the Christmas decoration can be seen everywhere.

The magnificent thing of all is, you can see all the way from Tanglin road, to Orchard to Dobby Ghout (maybe even further, but I'm not sure), the highways, streets and trees are decorated with lightings and purple snowflakes. Oh, my favorites! Snowflakes and the color purple!
Also, the theme of this Christmas is 'A Fairytale Christmas'; How unique!
I heard Singapore government spent a huge sum of money for the lights: S$80 million, wow!
And, to add the attraction, there is -as usual- end of year sale everywhere :p So, if you live everywhere else, you really should visit Singapore this times of the year.
Click here to read more about Christmas in Singapore, and here about the Christmas lights (alright now, let me make this clear, I'm not the spokesperson of Singapore Tourism Board *lol*).

However, despite of the blings and glitz of it, let's not forget the true meaning of CHRISTmas: it's the birthday of our Lord! Have you prepared a present for Him?

Want =/= Deserve

Just because you want something doesn't mean you deserve to get it.

So remember that when you walk past something that you want but can't really afford to buy.

Impulse buying might feed your needs for a minute or two, but the long-lasting financial sting is not worth the temporary joy. Think long-term about your money now.
There are many important investment opportunities coming up, and you need to have capital at hand in order to make the most of them.
I miss my -sweet- lovely durian.
Do you still remember who you are?

I do - :)

Sekarang aku tahu apa yang aku takutkan. Bukan mimpi yang terlalu indah yang takkan menjadi kenyataan, tapi mimpi yang menjadi kenyataan tapi ternyata tak seindah yang aku bayangkan.

Jared speaks Russian in Lord of War


And here he is saying random Russian sentence: 

Translation: Why the fuck does an ass need an accordeon? Why are you standing like an oak?


Two days here, and I already want to go away. Don't get me wrong, it's not that something become more unpleasant. Everything is just like always.

Precisely because it's just like always.

Sol Goode - Jared Leto

I bet many people haven't seen this one. Yes, it's Jared Leto on 0:21, as a rockstar wannabe. He's so freaking funny. He's still cute even as a dork. Oh.. don't we just love his acting?

What it means to love someone~

When you love someone...
...you want him to be happy, whatever it means.
...you want to be a better person because of and for him.

Xiaoyu'er, Murong Xian
Guess what, he dropped by and viewed my Friendster page! One thing I never imagine he would do -not after what have happened between us. But he did! I was so pleasantly surprised, I took a screenshot of my Friendster's Who Viewed Me page :p
I never admit it to anyone, but I do miss him - as a FRIEND. We used to hang out together, and I miss those times. Maybe he misses them too? Maybe -I almost dare not to think about it- he misses me??

Like the song says:
Have you ever stayed up waiting for a telephone call, just to hear her say hello cause you miss each other's soul?
But I'm not sure about the 'each other' part, maybe it's just me missing him.

Yes, I miss his "soul". How he never failed to give me a sense of security whenever I'm with him. But, I barely knew this, he always feel insecure whenever he's with me. How sad, and how pathetic I am. I push away the only guy I want to be close to. And he never realize how much he means to me, how he's so great in my eyes.
And now that I really think about it, he WAS and IS the best guy I've ever known :'( I miss him.
I always praise parents because of their child,
and not the child because of their parents.
The dark cloud places a piece of shadow in our hearts
I listen respectfully to my mood,
which has already been quiet for a long time
Clear and transparent
Just like the beautiful scenery
It's always only clear when seeing it in my memory
Can the heart, that has been thoroughly hurt, still continue to love me?
I make an effort to pull up the pair of hands that have no warmth
The tenderness in the past has already been locked by time
Only leaving sadness that doesn't go away
The maple leaves slowly falling down are like thoughts
I light a candle to warm up the end of autumn
The northern lights plunder the edge of the sky
The northern wind brushes past the expressions of missing you
I take love and burn it into fallen leaves
Yet I can't get back that familiar face
The maple leaves slowly falling down are like thoughts
Why must retrieving be hurried before winter comes?
Loving you passing through time
Two rows of tears from the end of autumn
Let love permeate through the ground
All I want is you to be by my side
The graceful red rain in between the mountainside
Withering with the north wind
I lightly swing the wind chimesI want
To awaken the love that has been deserted
Snowflakes are already spread all over the ground
Deeply scared that the maple leaves outside the window have already become frozen

song by Jay Chou

30STM- "Edge of The Earth" on The Late Late Show

So we all know that 30 Seconds to Mars always did a marvelous live shows. But this one is one of my favourites:  Edge of the Earth @The Late Late Show!

N.B.: Check out Jared's guitar --it's the Pythagoras!

"There's nothing better than a good lie.."

Mood: Angry
Soundtrack: Evanescene, "Everybody's Fool"

There are more lies than broken promises.

There are more lies around you than you realize.
The promises of love, of parent's love, of best friends',
the promises of shoulder you can cry on, of helping hands, of anything on earth.
It's all lies.
Where are they when your world's falling apart?
Where are they when you're trying so hard picking up your shattered dream?
When you bleed by crystallized tears?
Keeping their own world and dreams safe. Away from you.

They break your heart with their lies,
stomp on it with their indifference,
throw it away and laugh away.
Then they're condemn you for not having a heart?!

Another story of love

Well, I stumbled onto this video of Lindsay Lohan's 'Over', and I almost cry when I watch it. Nope, not exactly because of the touching story the video clip tells, but because of how resemble it is to the story I have in my head for so many years! -- I even already have the name and the background for each character! *shudder with excitement*

Yeah, it is my bad that I've never wrote the story down. Well, not yet. I currently have two other stories I need to write down. Grrr, I have so many stories in my head that I just couldn't write onto words.

30 Seconds to Mars on Boogie TV (part 1)

When the whole world around you is drowned, I will be here. Maybe I will not be strong enough to protect you or to save you. But I will be here. With you. Never will let you feeling alone.

When the whole world around me is drowned, I don't want you to be here. I want you to be in somewhere safe. Knowing that you are safe is enough to giving me strength, to survive or to face death.

"Never judge a book by its cover"

"Never judge a book by its cover", how many times have we heard this saying? But how many times have we failed to do it? Or instead should I say: how many times have we succeeded to do it?
It is alway easier to point your finger at everyone else, than to point it towards yourself, isn't it?
Hrrgh..whatever. I'm just having a super bad day today. And I think I'm going crazy. All I think of is just him. Can't concentrate myself to other things. And what does he have to do with judging a book by its cover? Well, people judge him because of who he is. Fact is, those people don't know him. And those people judge me because I love him for who he is. Shallow people. They're so lost.

Alexander the Great

I currently am so crazy in love with Alexander the Great *lol*. Well, I've liked him since long ago, but recently I read a book about him, and I like him even more!

"Sex and sleep alone make me conscious that I am mortal."
"I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well."
"I send you a kaffis of mustard seed, that you may taste and acknowledge the bitterness of my victory."
"How great are the dangers I face to win a good name in Athens."
"I would rather live a short life of glory than a long one of obscurity."
"Its better to burn out than fade away."
"Persian women are painful to my eyes."
"I am paying my mother extraordinarily high rent for nine months of dwelling" - when he was bombarded by complaints and accusations about Antipater and his associates in Pella. Perhaps, he should have listened more carefully after all....
-Quotes by Alexander the Great

Here is the movie trailer of 'Alexander' starring Collin Farrel, Angelina Jolie, and Anthony Hopkins. Not a good movie in Hollywood standard, but okay for the effort.

My alter ego

Valinka Halliwel Slytherin
Valinka Halliwel who was born on 4 December 1987, is a mixed blood. Well, not quite actually, her mother, Valescha Kwan comes from a pureblood family, while her father Christian Halliwell is a mixed blood.. She is also a mixed blood in another way. Her mother is a Chinese. That makes her has long dark-brown [almost black] hair with big light-brown eyes.

wizard cardValinka's surname which originally 'Halliwell' is intentionally spelled 'Halliwel', to differentiate her due to her Whitelighter hybrids. As she is half Whitelighter, she has the ability to orb (including telekinetic-orbing, which is the ability to call for an object and orb it to somewhere else) and to 'heal'.

Lately, I LOVE making avatars -or whatever you might call them. Especially Harry Potter-related ones. I guess it's because I joined these two websites which gets me in the "Harry Potter mood".
1. I'm so excited with this one! Maybe because it's represent the things I've never had: all dress up to a prom with my dream guy *lol*. By the way, the "dream guy" in the picture is Harry Potter's character.. Guess who..!

2. These are the avatars I made for my "school". The first one is kinda silly, well, it was my first attempt to make small avatar. The second and third are the same but in different houses, because in Hexrpg I'm a Slytherin, while in HOL I'm a Gryffindor.

Those are all...for now. I know there are more to come.
I'm in a high spirit to make avatars!
