Surprises From People who Care

Surprise 1:
I was preparing to dash out of school
when i bumped into Saiful and Lao EE on Thursday.

Lao EE said,
"When I saw you from a distance,
i thought you looked familiar.
It took me awhile to realize u're Mint.
So low profile for what?!"

Saiful added something like,
"Yeah man!
It's like you practically camouflaged with the background,
and became part of the school!"

Of course,
our encounter must be captured as a memorance.

See you guys next Wednesday. :)

Surprise 2:
I was working on my new song,
when i received a letter from my secondary school friend,
Jennifer Lim, also my Jie Jie for a good 10years now.

This letter was written from me, to her,
many many years back!
And there was a song attached
which i've written for her back then!

How Wonderful all my songs are coming back to me!
I'm going to sing it!!!

And I love my Jennifer Jie!
*Muacks Muacks Muacks*

Jennifer is someone who really is there for me, genuinely.
She kept her promise to take care of me,
and she has been doing that ever since.

I'd have alot of first encounters with her;

she brought me to pierce my ears as my 16th birthday present.
was there when i wore my 1st spagetti-striped top,
gave me my 1st bible-from precious moments,
my first ang-bao as my 'godmother',
protected me from those 'ah lians' in sec school,
was a friend when i hadn't any friends,
accompany me to city harvest church,
attended my 21st birthday party,
helped me when i'm in serious financial needs
by searching for part time jobs for me-Beds, Jab 1, MLM,
invited me to help her when she opened her first pub-Jens.

She lends a listening ear when i need it,
shower me with care and concern,
and love me for who i am.
She, is always her for me.

She's a real darling.
She simply give and give without asking for anything in return.
I can never thank her enough.

She is,God sent to me.

I'm really ashame of myself for not being there for her at all.
From now on,
I will be.

I will never forsake this friendship for anything in this world.
Sisters for Life!

I love my Jennifer Jie.

Golf- The Beginner

Photos are Overdued.

I think it's taken during my 2nd Official lesson.
I'm at my 4th now.
Can't wait to learn the full swing and watch the balls fly!

I watched Disney's Snow White and the 7 dwarfs,
followed by Little Mermaid, on youtube.
Youtube is awesome.

Charice Pempengco
from The Philippines

16, but already a born singer, for sure.
the amount of hard work she puts into her singing career
is also way more that of her gift...

"A world new world" she sang with Kyu hyun
in Korean had touched my heart...

You Go Girl!

Our Maths Facilitator bought pizza for the class.
The entire pizza was gobbled down within seconds- barbarian-like.

Maths was fun.

The aim was to shift the flag onto the right hand of the smiley face;
and the smiley face has to stand upright,
USING Matrix, degree and radian calculations!

I've never felt the air so fresh,
mind so clear,
heart so light
and the sky so blue,
in a long, long time...

My day begun with me
getting down on the correct side of my bed.

I woke up exceptionally early so that
I get a free ride from Uncle to school.
My fav cousin, Jiaxin,and I went to school together.

I met up with her again,
for early lunch together.
We talked alot about her life.

She's growing up.
All the best to you, babe.

Mint is super productive.
I wish everyday is like Today.

Evan's Toyhouse- Exposed

He used to tell me,
"it's not your voice problem,
it's my mic problem."
i simply thought it's his way of consoling me.
I finally know what he's talking about.

I'm going back to teach!

I've always got two passions since childhood:
Singing and Teaching.

From Dream Jobs to Reality Jobs.
I can work a life time for it!

One of my students from the tuition centre PMed me
the moment i logged onto Msn:

I was flooded on MSN- 7IMs and still increasing!
Work, Music, Personal Problems, Meet Ups.
Although I'm claimed to be busy Kpo-ing, I seriously love it!
This shows my friends and family have thought of me.

*It feels great to know i've been loved*
In regards to my facebook status;
Of course i wish i'm really getting married to someone i love.
But the actual fact is,
I am just 'married' officially to my WORK instead.
I'm skeptical about relationships and love;
I find it difficult to understand men and what they're really thinking about
when it comes to love and relationships.
What do they really want from women?!
For awhile,
they tell you that they like you and want to settle down with you.
then after awhile,
they change their minds.
They'll tell you that they want you to love them whole-heartedly,
but they themselves aren't ready to be that serious.
Then, you think they want you to take things easy,
and they'll tell you that you're not ready for this relationship.
Either way,
they will tell you that they didn't want the r/s anymore.
It's an irony that they want it in the first place.
they're not so L.O.V.E-inclined.
A minor change around them can cause a huge mentality switch;
So for those who really care,
please do not ask me about r/s or about my bf anymore.
I'm sick and tired of it.
But i do believe that one day,
everything will fall into place naturally.
All i need,
are your blessings and well wishes.
For now,
lean back and wait for my 3 upcoming songs!

Taylor Swift- Love Story

Songwriters: Swift, Taylor Alison;

Taylor Swift-Love Story with Lyrics (Super HQ Video/Audio) - For more amazing video clips, click here

We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes
And the flashback starts
I'm standing there
On a balcony in summer air

See the lights
See the party, the ball gowns
I see you make your way through the crowd
And say hello, little did I know

That you were Romeo,
you were throwing pebbles
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
And I was crying on the staircase
Begging you please don't go, and I said

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say yes

So I sneak out to the garden to see you
We keep quiet 'cause we're dead if they knew
So close your eyes
Escape this town for a little while'

Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
But you were everything to me
I was begging you please don't go and I said

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say yes

Romeo save me, they try to tell me how to feel
This love is difficult, but it's real
Don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess
It's a love story baby just say yes
Oh oh

I got tired of waiting
Wondering if you were ever coming around
My faith in you is fading
When I met you on the outskirts of town, and I said

Romeo save me I've been feeling so alone
I keep waiting for you but you never come
Is this in my head?
I don't know what to think

He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring
And said, marry me Juliet
You'll never have to be alone
I love you and that's all I really know
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress
It's a love story baby just say yes

Oh, oh, oh, oh'
Cause we were both young when I first saw you

Temple; Not Temper.

Temper is the human reaction you show when you're angry.
Temple is the place the chinese worship and pray to their gods.

The previous post has got a typo error,
and i've tried to edit 'temper' into 'temple' 3times.
And typo error is still THERE.

It's fated,
so I'm going to leave it.
And my readers are going online commenting how 'power' my english is.


THANK YOU for all your compliments!
just laugh all you want. :)

i talked too much.

All i remembered yesterday night-
tipsy, puke, Pig Organ Soup and that i talked too much.

*Slap my Mouth*

I could vague recall i was yaking away,
but about what i seriously cannot remember.
After keeping myself for so long,
i'm beginning to miss alot of past activities and friends.

  • Meet up with Wei Da and Ie Liang for L4D,
  • Go up to Andrew house for guitar hero game,
  • Meet up with Shi Hui and Mei Bao for KTV,
  • Chill out with Sim Bin Bin and Chin Kai le.
  • Go over to Johnson's temper to pray and catch up with my temper friends.
  • Visit Ivv's new house together with Yuan Feng.
  • Meet Daiyu to sit his new bike!!!

This blog is gradually filling up with colours.

And I want my everyday to be like that.

I am very blessed with so many wonderful friends around me,

and people who care!!!

Recording @ Flutter Music

I finally satisfied 3 long weeks of craving over @ Flutter Music;
i realize i cannot live without making music anymore.
This is a New CCA, like those activites u participate during your secondary school days.

working doubly hard to write my chords for my new songs.

Probably one of the best pianist around.
my new friend found;
but i keep forgetting his name!

Desmond- the magic man who can figure out my chords in a jiffy.
And my songs will come alive! :)

Our Rewards for our day of hardwork.
Although it seems a little too much food for 3,
we managed to clear majority of these.
I must learn how to figure chords.
I think i cannot be fully dependent on my friends all the time.
They have their own work and committments too.

The dice represents resorts, chalets and mountains;
The coaster represents the island.
The white survey represents the tides.
Find me a better way to describe monsoon?

Stairs To Heaven

Body Worlds is here @ in our very own Singapore Science Centre.
For a moment,
i envy those households with a science centre member card.
With that card, it only cost $14 per adult to go in.

Sadly, i've to pay $21.
But i know it'll be all worthwhile.

I can't wait to see all the human specimens although they make my hair stands.
Some even had real tattoos on them.
They're real heroes to donate their bodies as specimens
for living humans to understand about ourselves better.

but better late than never.
I reached school at almost 12 noon;
the lesson's about PHP codings.
Found a new friend; Samantha Aka Jia Qi.
She's cute and always smiling.
Luck is on my side.
because i caught sight of the poster below just as I was about to go out of school;
Chinese Song Writing Competition!
I seriously think the shooting stars are helping me;
i saw two and made two wishes the other day.
One is coming true...

I was in town first before Evan,
so i walked to Sim Lim Tower to meet him.
We had Korean Food for dinner;
prepared by real koreans!

My Camera didn't manage to capture the appetizing side of the food
because i was only using a camera phone.
But believe me,
it really was tasty.
I'll be back.

Evan said this is like a stair to heaven.
I think hard;
if this really is,
i'm going to hell instead.
I have a fear of heights.
And standing on the 7th storey near the glass panels,
it's already freaking me out!

indulgence in Chigago Chessecake and Pure Choc @ Coffeebean-Paragon.
Sinful yet makes me utterly contented.
Evan didn't believe i could finish a WHOLE CAKE by myself.

Ie Liang is a real friend.
I adore him to bits.
I must meet him up soon!
I can't meet Daiyu and Sebes although i want to.
I feel bad about it.
But i promise i'll meet them up next week!
And i dun care Lao EE has to give me a rounding!
although i duno he really 'eh sai' or not. =p
talking about missing people,
i miss Sim Bin Bin,
Chin KaiLe,
Lydia Huang,
Ngo Shi Hui,
Jesedy Puay,
Tan Ieliang,
tan weiDa,
Jennifer Jie,
Low kee Choun,
Cindy Jie,
and Christine Wong.

My New Inspiration Room.

My new inspiration room for song composition;
I'm totally isolated.

Maths just totally murdered me in school today.
I'm utterly brain dead.

I practically dragged my feet home,
dropped by the Tao Huay Shop to get a treat for myself.
I passed by the Al-Ameen and
who would I see but my last year's classmates and LIM DAIYU.
I thought i'm the only one being left abandoned in the school.
My face lifted the moment i get to slap Mr Daiyu!
It's been almost a year i've joined them for meals?!
Come on, so long meh....

This is my Lim Daiyu, aka Lao EE.
Chatting with him makes me feel light-hearted again-
camps, outings, craps, jokes, games, fun...

He's riding a bike now;
even so i'm glad he hasn't forgotten me though he has his new bike and friends.
True friends are meant to keep in the pockets and never let go;
unlike Chris Liu Jun Lin.
So much so for 'TWINS FOR LIFE'.

my 'campmate' and student leader partners.
We join school camps and activities together- Fun guy.

Arini is beside him.
the ever sweet loving, soft spoken, nice hair lady.

I don't know whether Sebestian knows i'm snapping him.
But this facial expression really cracks me up.
Sebestian's my ex-classmate.
Too Bad Sean have to leave early.
Otherwise i would've snapped him too!
He's too pretty and fair to be a guy;
I crown him "Mr Pageant"
Hey guys,
thank you for brightening up my routined life.
With such friends around,
who'll feel upset at all?

Aunt's Birthday

Happy Birthday to my best Aunt ever!

My 3 cousins, my sister and I 'cup' money to buy this bag for her;
which she claims it to be fake.
It's authentic okay;
that is, according to the person whom we bought it from....

The zoo is such a place i'll never grow tired of going;
it's no longer a disconsolate place for me.

I love this sign.
This sign was found at the rain forest walk where the false ghisals were.
I think before anyone can throw in the life buoy,
the victim would've been eaten up by the animal!
What an irony!
I was standing at the Elephants of Asia Section when i notice this tower opposite.
That's where my GOLF RANGE IS!

I love the Singapore Zoo and every animals found there;
except the wolves- because they are really damn smelly!

Mint in School.

I went to work at Beds without being notified that i don't need to work-
OUR MR PATRICK SOH didn't put my schedule in.


But then again,
i was okay with that.
I ended up staying to drink with my Da ge,
whom i've not seen for ages,
as well as Ryan, Gary and friends!

And of course,
I get to see my love love- Crystal. :)

I think Fish is a wonderful girl.
She's all bubbly and sweet.
Fish is in black, on the left of the picture below.

My DA GE whom i've not met for almost a year now!
his name is Ray,
and he's a capricornian just like me.
Our birthdays are one day in difference;
his on the 2nd Jan,
and mine 3rd.
However, he's exactly 12years older than me.
In chinese we termed it as 一轮。
And he keep repeating that we have same thinkings;
because our birthdays are of one day difference...
plus "一轮".
He joked that he has upgraded himself to 歌佛,
and i'm still a 歌仙。
and his friend is ‘割皮’。
:) I love his lame jokes.

The person in red is Ryan.
And i finally get to take a picture with him. :)

Yes u heard it,
i'm in school today- my new committment.
I'm having Marketing Module.
and the photos below are an overview of how my classroom looks like,
and how we study...

I won't let you down.
