Through My Window

I fell in love with the song from TMNET’s Everyone Connects CF.

It was a mystery song for me for quite some time because I had trouble finding it on the internet. I finally got my hands on it last night and was pleasantly surprise to discover that the song was sang by our very own local band – Bunkface!

Through My Window
Don’t want much, I just want everything
Thought that I could, do almost anything
One step in front of the other
Thought that I could do it alone

In the blink of an eye, it’s just another day
Telling me why, I’ll find another way
Got this feeling, got me reeling
I can almost start believing

Now there’s me and you
And we are not alone
You and me
We are together now
Through my window, I can see there’s
More than you and more than me
Me and you
And we are not alone
Different view
We are together now
Through my window, I can see
Our wildest dreams could be so real

I see a spark, it starts a fire
Is this the one worth waiting for?
Thought that I could do it without you
Can’t exist like this anymore

Now there’s me and you
And we are not alone
You and me
We are together now
Through my window, I can see there’s
More than you and more than me

Now there’s me and you, you and me
We are not alone and we are together
Through my window I can see
Our wildest dreams could be so real.

Some of you might recognize this song. It got some heavy airtime in local radios.

Skin Deep

A girl in my choir class loved my skin. She said something about wanting her baby to have a beautiful white skin like mine. It was very noisy in our class. I thought she said “Hopefully your baby will have nice skin like yours”. I was like Oh My Effing God! She thought I was pregnant! I got so very upset and the moment the class ended I told my friend about this “Ling Ling, that girl in our class thought I was Pregnant! Huhuhuhuhuhu”

And Ling-ling, who actually heard what the girl said to me said “No lah, she said she wants her baby to have a skin like like yours lah… you heard her wrong”

Apparently I am very self-conscious about my ‘lunoks’. No more fast food for me.

Well, maybe after I finished collecting of of McD’s Coke Contour Glass…

I Don’t Remind Me of Myself.

I looked in a mirror one day and realized that I no longer remind me of myself. You probably think it bothers me. But it doesn’t. We discard pieces of ourselves all the time. It’s how we grow and move forward.

Sometimes we lose a little too much of ourselves and we turn into someone we could hardly recognize. How amazing would it be if we could jump back to the past and get back all the pieces that we had lost, or maybe pick the ones that we actually like and put them in a jar somewhere. So that we could come back to it from time to time, to remind ourselves of how we used to be and how much we have lost to get to where we are. How humbling it would be to be able to recognize of our past. How inspiring.

And in the stillest winter it would keep us company. How soothing it would be to have that familiar presence. How comfortable, to be able sleep beside those warm fragments of colorful childhood and reckless youth.

I am an Antisocial.

Reading is a solitary hobby. People read in solitary when they crave for an alone time with themselves. Avid readers are by nature solitary people. They crave for too much time alone.

Reading can be a lonely hobby. When someone starts reading a little too much, it could be a sign that they are feeling a little bit lonely or they are craving for a quiet time for themselves.

When someone becomes engrossed with a book at the presence of others, it could indicate that he / she hated the company and would rather have the time alone to read. This is how reading could make you an antisocial asshole. When you’re in a bus station waiting to for the bus to arrive or in a busy restaurant waiting for your order to be delivered and you have someone you know sitting right next to you – it is considered very rude to read. Do not read when you are with a companion. It indicates self-centered personality and anti-social tendencies. If your companion is also reading, it indicates both of you hate each other company. This is just common sense, when you have someone with you, you are obligated to talk to that person not deliberately ignore them.

You might think it’s cool to be caught reading a New york Times bestseller in public but only do it when you’re alone. Reading is a solitary hobby. Do it in your own solitary time. Do not read when you are having dinner with your friends and family. You have all the time in the world for books. A time with your family is a time with your family. Spend it wisely. Life is so short. You don’t know how much time you have left to live.
