Cover of Sore Ga Ai Deshou (original by Mikuni Shimokawa)



One of my favourite songs, from one of my most favourite anime ever! Full Metal Panic Fumoffu!

Lyrics are from http://www.animelyrics.com/anime/fullmetalpanic/soregaaideshou.htm

Original / Romaji LyricsEnglish Translation
Tatoeba ne   namida ga koboreru hi ni ha
Sono senaka wo   hitorijime shitai kedo
Even if there are days when the tears roll down my cheeks
I want to have your back all for myself, but
Yasashisa ha tokidoki   zankoku dakara
Motomeru hodo   kotae wo miushinau
because kindness is also cruel sometimes
I lose sight of the answer the more I search for it
Ameagari no machi   niji ga mieru nara
Ima   arukidasou   nani ka ga hajimaru
If you can see the rainbow in the town after the rain
let's start walking now, something is about to begin
Kimi ga iru kara   asu ga aru kara
Hitorikiri ja ikite yukenai kara
Konna ni chikaku ni kanjiru   sore ga, ai deshou
Namida no kazu no itami wo   kimi ha shitteru kara
Sukitooru sono me no naka ni   tashika na imi wo sagashite
Egao mitsuketai
Because I have you, because I have tomorrow
because I can't live on all alone
I feel you so close by me, I guess that's love
Because you know how much pain tears can bring
I want to find a smile in your transparent eyes
as I search for a definite meaning in them
Nani mo iwanai de mo   konna kimochi ga
Kimi no mune ni tsutawareba ii no ni
Although it'd be good if these feelings found their way into your heart 
without me needing to speak a word, 
Sukoshizutsu machi ha iro wo kaeru kedo
Hora omoide ga mata hitotsu fueta
The colour of the town changes little by little but
see, our memories have again increased by one
Kimi no kotoba no hitotsu hitotsu wo
Ima ha dakishimerareru kara kitto
Futari de kasaneatte iku   sore ga, ai deshou
Dare mo shiranai   ashita ga matte iru to shite mo
Daijoubu   mou nakanai de
Kimi to te to te wo tsunaide
Aruiteku zutto
Because now I can embrace every word that you said
I'm sure that we'll come closer to each other 
I guess that's love
Even if a tomorrow that nobody knows is waiting for us
it's all right, don't cry anymore
we'll join hands
and keep walking on forever
Futo shita shunkan   tsunoru kimochi ja naku
Sukoshizutsu   sodatete iku mono da ne
Aisuru kimochi ha
It isn't something that builds up in an instant
but a feeling that grows a little at a time,
the feeling called love
Kimi ga iru kara   asu ga aru kara
Hitorikiri ja ikite yukenai kara
Konna ni chikaku ni kanjiru   sore ga, ai deshou
Namida no kazu no itami wo   kimi ha shitteru kara
Sukitooru sono me no naka ni
Tashika na imi wo sagashite   egao mitsuketai
Because I have you, because I have tomorrow
because I can't live on all alone
I feel you so close by me, I guess that's love
Because you know how much pain tears can bring
I want to find a smile in your transparent eyes
as I search for a definite meaning in them

So fast...

The semester is coming to a close and there are so many deadlines to meet. I'm not usually one to procrastinate, but sometimes I just can't take it anymore. For the first half this semester, I tried to revise everyday and finish assignments as they came out. Now I'm just floating around~

Well, at least there are no more 6 hour practicals on Thursday.

Maybe I'm just not cut out for university life.

But I don't think working life will be any better.

I need to live in the moment.

I'm not mature enough...

Lord, when will I be mature enough?
Sometimes I think I'm too friendly, and it gives people the wrong idea. But I like the way I am.

When will I be mature enough to know that I can't please everyone?
Everyone is different, and some people just don't like the way you are. I have to stop taking things personally.

I like having friends, but that doesn't mean I should try to be friends with everyone. When will I know that enough is enough?
I have a habit of intruding into other people's personal space easily, and I should know that some people don't like that.

When will I know that some people don't think the win-win way?
I should be mature enough to know that some people don't care about win-wining. Which brings us to:

How can I more effectively say things to encourage win-win?
I like to argue with people. Sometimes I come across as arrogant, when I actually respect the other person's opinion. I just want people to consider my suggestion. I don't care if they don't like my opinion, I just want them to listen. I want to inspire others, just as I want others to inspire me. How can I encourage that? A healthy exchange of ideas, if you must.

Lord, will I ever be mature enough?

Sometimes, I do wish that I could go back to the good old days, when little was expected of you. Maybe I just need to take things less seriously. I'm mainly happy-go-lucky, but I do take things too personally sometimes. You know, being an adult ain't that bad... But I'm still not one yet. And I know I will never be.

I will always be stuck in that crevice between childhood and adulthood. That thin, fine crevice... Oh poor child, you longed to be an adult, and now that you're almost one, you long to be a child...

My first FB-jack!

Woohoo! After seeing so much Facebook jacking going around, I decided to follow the crowd and do it! It wasn't as fun as I hoped, but it was still fun! I feel a bit bad doing it though. This proves I can't really do practical jokes. I have to be less sensitive! Poor KX. Hahahaha

The robot has come

 Take heed, all iPhones!

Be like water

"Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the Earth."

What is true strength?

Too many people are trying too hard to be strong, and that, my friend, will just backfire in the end. Many people's notion of strength is the ability to tolerate, to resist, to be cool. There's a limit to what a person can tolerate. We're just humans after all. Eventually, we'll just break down no matter how "strong" we are.

Bruce Lee once said, "be like water". Water can be strong, or weak. You normally take it for granted, but it can dissolve rock and tear down houses. Water can flow through tiny cracks, or fit into any container of any shape. Water can take all sorts of nonsense, but it can also dish it out. Water can be cold or hot, ice or steam. But in the end, water never loses itself. And that's what we all should aim to be.

Empty your mind, because flowing water is fresh and stagnant water is stale. How can you enlighten yourself until you remove all those "lan ideas" from your head?! (Yes that means you should disregard this blog post too, haha!) Smell the roses, feel the earth... Life's too short to be living it like a dream.

The meek are strong, because they have humility. They're strong, because they're in touch with reality. They're secure, because they don't need to be vindicated. They're at ease, because they don't have delusions of grandeur.

Water is meek. Or is it not?

Be like water.

So, what do you think true strength is?

19 October

Yesterday was such a long day! I went out at 6.30 am and got home at 11.45am!

I decided to pon my database lecture and went to eat pancakes with ***** ******. It was such a nice place! The pancakes are good! I really underestimated them though. I couldn't finish it and in fact I skipped dinner! So it's like a luner!

Then I went to sell my DVD burner to an UK guy. He's here because he met his Singaporean sweetheart in University of London and got married! How sweet! Sometimes I wonder if any Asian guys marry Caucasian girls. You see a lot of Asian girls with Caucasian guys, but what about the other way around? So far I have not witnessed anything like that...

Finally, I walked around Clementi and stoned at McDonalds until En En ended work. The shops there really remind me of Ang Mo Kio.

I had a great time singing! En En and Yangjie sing really well! As usual, I screwed up some songs. Hope their ears are still okay HAHA

After all that, I took 165 and had a really long journey home. Granted it was quite fast since there weren't many people boarding the bus, but it's still damn far. I'm pretty much used to it, but sometimes it's still quite annoying. Wo lao le.

PRATA

I LOVE PRATA!!!!!!

Ok I just had prata this morning at the Engineering Canteen. It's 50-cents a piece for goodness sake! That's so 10 years ago!

And while eating my prata happily, I heard an all too familiar voice calling my full name, and it was Liau Wansu!!! Good to see you babe! Too bad you were in a rush for your meeting!

For lunch, I had Ginseng Chicken as usual. OMG two of my favourite foods in a day. I'm in heaven. OH WAIT I HAD AVOCADO MILKSHAKE TOO!!! Oh but it wasn't up to standard today. It was bland, to say the least.

Foood foood foood I love foooood

I'll Stand By You (Cover)

I was feeling a bit sentimental so I did a cover... My pace is kinda off, LOL

I tear too easily...

Yesterday, while watching an emotional scene in Glee I teared up... On the bus... It always happens when I watch emotional scenes. Fortunately no one was looking, lol. For some reason I felt quite bad after that... So I totally plonked on my bed the moment I got home and I slept for a straight 4 hours...

I think travelling took its toll on me. I decided to be gung ho(brave) and try out some new bus routes... In the morning I took a bus to Bishan, 156 all the way to Clementi, 96 to school and then 95 to Science, lol. It took about 2 hours and I was late for class. Argh.

Then when I was going home, I did something stupid again. After buying soya bean ice cream (<3) from NUH, I took a bus to Vivo then changed to some bus which goes to Eunos. I happily stopped halfway in Whampoa and changed to 147, only to realise that I went in the wrong direction... Ending up in Little India. Seriously, I'm not racist or anything, but I felt a bit uneasy.

When I finally got home, I was drained...

This is your LIFE>>>


Wow that is just amazing. Special thanks to Master Kang for sending it to me!

Life is not a dream; Don't pass it by not knowing what has happened.

Amazing art…

Just came across this deviant, and I’m just speechless… It’s beautiful!

ZzzZzz

Ate @ Breeks with Star, Jupiter and Luna yesterday. Apparently the ice cream was spiked, because we were too groggy to study after that. Even the Gong Cha didn't help. Zzzz.


In fact, the effect seems to be persistent. I experienced a sudden bout of drowsiness at English class this morning. I couldn't concentrate on the class at all. It happened for the lectures as well. So I decided to skip my 3pm lecture. Went home, plonked on the bed and ZZzzed away for 4 hours. Woah, feels good.

On hindsight, it might be because of the anti-histamine that I took. Hmm.

Happy birthday to my...

...beloved sista!

And now it's time to catch up with my webcasts. And Glee.

You can't fight it...

Wahahaha. So much for not buying a new phone. Sometimes, you just want things even though you don't need them. And being a gadget freak, this is one of them. (Ok, I'm not exactly a gadget freak, I can withstand the urge to buy gadgets most of the time. I just appreciate them a lot. Haha!) I asked my mum about this and she agreed to pay for it, so what the hell...

I was eyeing the Milestone or the Milestone XT720. In fact, I already set my eyes on a second-hand Milestone. But the buyer flied kite(i.e. no deal) on me. Oh well. So in the end I bought the XT720 at Whymobile in Far East Plaza. It lives up to its reputation. Fast, cheap and no gimmicks. It's much cheaper than contracting a plan with Starhub, even with the handset discount and all.

But you know what? The next day, I received an email replying to my WTB ad. He was willing to sell his 3 weeks old XT720 for $70 cheaper than what I bought mine for(although mine is a brand new one). FML!!!!!

Hopefully I'm able to sell my beloved Motorola Q9H. And my music player too. Or should I sell my music player? This phone can do anything man.

Stuck in my mind

OMG Better in Time is now stuck in my mind...


And btw, Leona Lewis is reallly prettyyyyyy


Omg do I sound like a fanboi?

The reason why Singapore doesn’t ban smoking outright

The reason is money. They get so much money from the taxes that it makes no financial sense to ban smoking. I know that’s not the only reason. But it’s definitely an important reason. Another reason is that they can’t just ban smoking so suddenly since so many idiots are hopelessly addicted to smoking.

I can understand the addiction and how hard it is to get rid of one. But I believe that this is one of the most harmful addictions ever. In some addictions, you mainly harm yourself(sure, you may harm others indirectly in psychological ways but I’m just focusing on the physical ways). I mean, how the hell do you avoid smoke? It’s everywhere. It’s not fair that I have to make some stupid detour or wear some stupid mask just to protect myself from smoke.

Seriously, it’s like the number of smokers have increased everywhere I go. I had to deal with smoke in the army, and now I have to deal with it outside as well? What the hell man, what the hell.

To buy a new handphone or not…

iPhones are all the rage these days. I’ve been eyeing some touchscreen phones… I browse and browse and it gets my heart so excited… There were many times when I almost gave in. But in the end, I ask myself, do I really need a new phone?

I’m using the Motorola Q9H and I really like it. My only gripe is the lack of Wi-Fi and the not too impressive battery life. That is all. It would definitely be nice to get a new phone, something like the Sony Xperia X10 Mini Pro. But do I really need it?

1st complaint – lack of Wi-Fi. It’s convenient to have, but it’s not like there’s Wi-Fi hotspots everywhere(except when in school, but then I have my laptop anyway). And if the situation really calls for it, I can always surf using 3G. Conclusion: moot.

2nd complaint – battery life. Touchscreen phones don’t have much better battery life anyway(e.g. Android phones). At least the Motorola Q lasts a day. I guess I just have to remember to charge it everyday.

So, I finally took the plunge and upgraded the OS(operating system) from Windows Mobile 6.0 to 6.1. It’s an unofficial upgrade(Motorola has kind of abandoned Singapore, so sad), and it was the Europe version, so I didn’t dare to upgrade. Now, curiosity has got the better of me. It’s like upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7!

The interface is still clunky in some places, but there are many great things about Windows Mobile. I love the multi-tasking and I love how customisable it is. There are millions of things that one can change. For example, I just removed the camera shutter sound!

I guess I’ll stick with the Q for now… I might just win some super nice phone in a lucky draw or something. Better yet, may it drop from the sky!
