thank you

25 wasn't so bad after all. I'll freak out more in five years and by then..... Joash will have to do more than just the moonwalk.

My most favourite people in the whole world... thank you for dinner and Postsecret and the Faery book. :) Thanks for the Gerberas too!

And you...I've always wanted you to sing me a song, but you never would. Well i hope your 'fans' were as entertained as i was. I know you were waiting for an audience. =p

And to you guys, seeing you guys twice a week is what gets me through most days. Thanks for dinner, the pink pretty pashmina and the earrings i've worn twice this week already!

And girls (and weeliem and everyone at Sam's house).... thank you for the endless hugsss~

There's the unspoken rule about age... that when you reach the ripe old age of 21... you just stop counting. Cause well, who remembers anyway... and the only people who REALLY need to know how old you are is your bank, your insurance agent and your doctor.

My parents think i'm 27 and my brother and his friends just wished me for my 35th birthday. So there. insignificant piece of information.

So here's to being 21 and legally an adult.

a little sleep

There are times when you just get plain tired and lazy and all you wanna do is sleep/watch TV (or watch the entire ten seasons of FRIENDS at one go) or just stare into space. I know I do that all the time especially when I've got tons of work to do. And when I was little, i did that too. Just parked myself somewhere where I could just be doing absolutely nothing and then my mom comes along, whips out her bible and says

"6 Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!

7 It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,

8 yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

9 How long will you lie there, you sluggard?
When will you get up from your sleep?

10 A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest-

11 and poverty will come on you like a bandit
and scarcity like an armed man. "

And that would just pick me off my lazy butt and get to doing something productive. But man... I wish moving was a lot easier. I've got 5-7 years of trash treasures waiting to be sorted through.

chasing waterfalls

Sepiso-Piso Waterfalls

Joshua, Christine, Mel, Deric & Nate beneath the falls

There's just something so majestic about waterfalls. It kinda makes you wanna go right up to it and touch it. It's in the midst of that deafening roar you'll sometimes find the space of silence, where you can just be.....

view from the cockpit

My trip to Medan started with my brother calling to tell me that he was gonna be flying our plane, and I could sit up front with him!!!

We've been frequent flyers since we were kids and during take off and landings, to amuse ourselves, we always pretended we were pilots and we flicked imaginary buttons and spoke on our imaginary walkies and we even conjured up emergency scenarios during turbulence. So for me, being up front in the cockpit was like being a kid again!

Well it was really cloudy and visibility was poor so i didn't get good shots, but I did get a video of our landing! =D

Holiday - Day 1

I thought I could sleep in but noooooo, my eyes popped wide open at 8am!!! (WTH!)
and then i figured I could watch some tv and take a loooongg shower after the cirque du soleil on NTV7, but half way through when i went to wash the dishes.... there was NO WATER!!!!

Who the hell cuts off your water supply on the first day of Raya?????? Anyway i made a few calls, and the management said "they're working on it".

SO in the mean time.... i walk down with two pails to fetch water from the pool shower. After lining up for 10 minutes, it was finally my turn, when this puny little kid cuts in front of me!!!! And he and his other tiny brothers come with more and more pails!!!! I was gonna blow my top and then realised there was a whole bunch of people lining up behind me. I would have soooo loved to smack that little twerp!

Anyway... after filling his third pail, i didn't give them a chance to bring out any more. I just pushed his bucket away and started filling mine while kinda 'unintentionally' directing the stream of water right at them. They got wet. haha.

yes it was a cheap shot... but OWHHH the SATISFACTION!!!
