The Sunday Currently Vol. 10

Sunday Currently not on a Sunday because I did not feel like writing then.

R e a d i n g
Shape magazine. Free subscription so why not, am I right?

L i s t e n i n g
命运 by 家家 and 手掌心 by 丁当, interchangeably. More of the former, though. It’s written by one of the guys from Mayday. Have I mentioned that they are from the Prince of Lan Ling’s OST? I am listening to 愛你 by 陈芳语 too.

T h i n k i n g
I always have thoughts throughout the week and I make a mental to note include it here but those thoughts never stick around. I finally remember some stuff. I was browsing blogs and I happened to stumble onto X’s blog and her partner, Y’s blog. Y’s posts are all about X. It revolves around her and how he feels. X’s posts are more general; mostly about her life and friends. I can see that Y still keeps giving and giving despite the disparity. Unconditional love, maybe? Well, I shouldn’t be quick to judge because maybe X could be the really clingy type and get mad if Y posts about something else. You know how sensitive some girls are.

I watched a play at Nanyang Girls Secondary School once. There was one about this guy constantly chasing this girl until she accepted him. His world revolves around her but she was more of a bird. She constantly takes him for granted but he is fine with it and he just kept giving. Some people think it’s stupid but I find it admirable.

To people to love unconditionally, I strive to be someone like you.

W i s h i n g
That I didn’t fill this week up to the brim. Still, it’s nice to know I’m making full use of my time.

H o p i n g
That I make these two weeks the best two weeks.

L o v i n g
My nail care products. Like, my giant nail clippers, nail block, cuticle oil, cuticle cream, cuticle pusher and nail moisturizer. I should do a post on all my nail care items one day. Have I mentioned I love my dry shampoo from Dove.

W a n t i n g
760D’s body please.

N e e d i n g
To like, remind myself that it’s okay that I wash my hair on alternate days but I should make an effort to wash my fringe everyday.

F e e l i n g
Appreciative. I know who I want.

C l i c k i n g
Town of Salem. I play it at work, I play it a few games before I sleep. I got three of the Milkcow girls interested in it.

Watching
Still prince of Lan Ling at the moment. However, I have actually put it on hold for awhile because I realized I have reached 30 episodes and it felt so suffocating that I stuck to a drama for 30 episodes when it’s usually 16 to 20. Furthermore,

SPOILERS

Gao Wei freaking killed his father, the emperor when he felt that his position as the crown prince was threatened by Chang Gong. Actually, the emperor just wanted to use Chang Gong to get the crown prince to work harder and he wanted to make him the next emperor. BECAUSE OF JEALOUSY HE KILLED HIS OWN FATHER. Well, maybe it’s karma because his father actually assassinated the previous king so he could become the next one. Now it’s going to be more of handing the politics in the palace instead of the  love between Chang Gong and Xue Wu. Their love captured my heart. So yeah, I’m scared of the politics because Gao Wei is the emperor now and the stupid Zheng Er just wants the both of them dead.

Missing
Salads. I have this craving for Swiss Bake’s salmon salads at the moment.

Guilt

I wanted to write something but I cannot do it in a calm and rational manner like I want to because I made a mistake and I am filled with so much guilt. I know it sounds like I did something huge but it’s really tiny. The guilt isn’t as small, though.

So I decided that I like this group of girls even more because they forgave me for it.

The past week was lovely because everything went as planned. Next week seems like a disaster because dinner plans are all over the place. The pen I used to write in my planner ran out so I’ll have to get a new one tomorrow. My substitute pen makes my handwriting not as perfect. Yes, different pens results in different handwriting for me; the pen controls me. Everything seems really tight so I hope it all works out.

The day ended well. I’m planning to start my monthly facial ritual tomorrow. It’s time to take care of those stubborn blackheads that can only be removed by force.

The Sunday Currently Vol. 9

Deer Lake. I didn’t get to see any deers, though.

R e a d i n g
Catching up on my 8 Days. I am probably about a month late so that’s 4 magazines.

L i s t e n i n g
我们的故事 by Tension. The voices, the melody, the lyrics. It’s been on repeat for a week.

T h i n k i n g
About the birthday surprise. I’m so lazy that I should just give the present away but I want to make it really special. Hmm.

W i s h i n g
That my father will be back with food soon. I’ve been snacking on dim sum and it doesn’t fill up the tummy.

H o p i n g
To fall asleep when the huge thunderstorm hits my area.

L o v i n g
Siew mai and har gao because I just had some and the taste is still lingering.

W a n t i n g
To lock my blog. Just a thought, nothing is concrete.

N e e d i n g
People to stop asking me questions because I had enough.

F e e l i n g
Happy that I didn’t put any work today so I can have an entire day of rest.

C l i c k i n g
Town of Salem. It’s the freaking bomb. It’s like Murderer, this huge ass popular game that was part of my childhood and that I sucked at because I cannot wink at people. I can’t wink, alright. So your role depends on luck and sometimes you are good, sometimes you are bad. You will almost never know who is telling the truth (I was an arsonist and I managed to get the town folks to believe the arsonist was someone else and they voted to execute him). It’s thrilling and like what I said, it’s murderer just on a way larger scale with more roles like witches and werewolves. Vampires are coming out. Kangling, you might like it.

Watching
I added two new currents since I took some away. I have just started on Prince of Lan Ling because it’s Ariel Lin’s last drama and I am craving for a really good traditional chinese drama just because. I am also watching Modern Family because it is a riot. It’s probably the show I laughed the most at (yes, not even HIMYM and BBT made me laugh that much)

Missing
The siew mai and har gao I devoured.

I’m betting on you

My mom got us tickets to USS. After being there so many times, this was the best. Most of the photos weren’t in focus that night but I still like it.

I went for most of the roller coasters with dread but left feeling really accomplished. Of course I didn’t take BSG. My poor heart cannot take it. We had dinner at Goldilocks and I totally forgot I had staff discount so we paid full price. Well, not exactly because the tickets came with $20 food vouchers. I took Revenge of the Mummy several times and my picture is always the same. I made Gladys work that night so I could see her but because she was stuck in controls, we didn’t get to meet at all.

Thank you, Kangling. You kept quiet when everyone else was talking too much.

While you are still here

You told me I was pretty, and I asked if it was because of my new hair. You said my hair had nothing to do with it.

You said we should try to get student meals. I was worried because only I have the student card. So I asked and both of us got student meals without showing any cards.

I suggested we watch a midnight movie and you said you wanted to watch Pixels. The movie was great but hearing your laughter was even better.

You didn’t want to wear proper shorts so you made me change into my FBTs. Your mom made you change into something better because she felt that it was unsightly. I stuck with my FBTs.

You introduced Town of Salem to me while I told you about Agar.io and Modern Family. We had a Modern Family marathon until 5am because you found out you loved it.

And that made me love it more.

If something is worth it, you don’t give it up

I find myself constantly going back to X for advice. X is the only person who will draw out all my flaws, lay it on a table and speak to me about every one of them. I’m never one to accept criticism, constructive or not, which is why our relationship is weirdly grey. I shut out X’s words just because they make me unhappy. We have vastly different beliefs and values. We don’t see eye to eye very much.

X told me so many things. Things that I pushed aside because I was too egoistic to admit that I was doing things wrongly. Soon, I realized those are the words I needed to hear. I didn’t want to hear words that protected me anymore.

X helped me with a major decision. X taught me what love is. X showed me that love is possible and it wins. X showed me that you don’t give up when you know what you want is worth it.

X will always be a friend I will want to keep close. Want to but I can’t. We are so incompatible.

But tonight, I thank you for being you. I thank you for listening. I’m sorry I couldn’t treat you better because what we had was made of glass (which I knew from the start) and I am a really careless person. I wish you all the happiness in the world.

I felt that I was more patriotic last year. This year, not so much. I wasn’t into the fireworks, the discounts, the red and white and the 9am siren which I just slept through. Went out for a little while before the barbecue because it was a day when the public transports were free. Took random shots which is something I am not comfortable with. I like having control over what I am shooting. Caught NDP’s live telecast with the family. I’m touched they kept a seat for Mr Lee Kuan Yew. Spent the rest of the night making my prawn skewers because prawns are my life. I had steamed, barbecued and stir fried prawns that night. I had stingray and thought of Chomp Chomp. I miss eating there.

Singapore’s 50th birthday came and went. It was a nice short holiday for all of us. They made so many things free that I’m glad I stayed in Singapore. Hope you have a great day at school and work.
