Absolutely zero 




Hey what's that you say?
You're not blaming me for anything
Well that's great
But I don't break that easy
Does it fade away?

So that's why I'm apologizing now for telling you
I thought that we could make it
I just don't get enough to believe that we've both changed

So who am I to say this situation isn't great?
It's my time to make the most of it
Of course I didn't know that this would happen to me
Not that easy, no, no, no, no

All along the fault is up for grabs
Why can't you have it
If it's for sale, what is your offer?
I'll sell it for no less than what I bought it for
Pay no more than absolutely zero

Well neither one of us deserves the blame
Because opportunities moved us away
And it's not an easy thing to learn to play a game
That's made for two, that's you and me
The rules remain a mystery

My favourite John Mayer song. 


I can't remember 
What went wrong last September
Though I'm sure you'd remind me
If you had to

Our love was 
Comfortable 
And so broken in

You wrestle with your own thoughts, your logic at battle with your emotions. When words fail you and you listen to a dozen different songs that seem to articulate the story of your life with such wretched honesty. I just miss you, that's all.

the answer isn't for us 


This time I am truly rendered speechless. 


We don't need to say goodbye
We don't need to fight and cry
Oh we, we could hold each other tight
Tonight

We're so helpless
We're slaves to our own forces
We're afraid of our emotions
No one, knows where the shore is

We're divided by the ocean
And the only thing I know is
The answer isn't for us
No, the answer isn't for us

- "So Sorry" by Feist

24 hours in Singapore 


Taken in Armadale, Melbourne

The last 2 weeks have been a whirlwind of frantic packing and teary farewells, of last-minute shopping (I went to as many op shops as I could to procure myself some "one-off" Melbournian clothes) and ethnic cuisines (Ethiopian twice a week, Carribean, Szechuan... Singapore cannot eat one!), of hitting the road and being shutter-happy.


The day before I was flying home, my laptop died on me. It just fizzled and sizzled and all the magic spells in the world couldn't bring it back to life. After a bit of a drama, I had E drive me to the nearest computer shop and bought myself a new Lenovo laptop for under $500. I felt like my entire life was in that laptop, and I swear I would have a complete breakdown if I didn't get a new one immediately. And we managed to buy a portable hard disk case, pry open the old laptop and transfer the data onto the new one, 2 hours before I was to get on my plane, thank God! 

It's been over 24 hours since I've landed home, and everything smells like it does in the tropics. It's the awkward familiar humidity which I promised myself not to complain about. All over town malls are exploding and I am completely disoriented and have had to depend on Mellie (who has only moved here for 3 months) to tell me where's where. I looked so lost at the train station that the uncle gave me an MRT map of the new system. A stranger in my native land, making a quiet re-entry into my hometown.

Everything in my life, inside and outside has changed and I am fighting every bone in my body not to be emotional about it.  I miss you more than words can say, but I have to learn to live in the now, be grateful for what I have, appreciate the people around.
