miss lu zhiyin.. now we noe y chan sam neo loves u.. i love this thing u wrote!! its sooo beautiful! :) n i share sentiments wif so many things u said here juz tt my english is way too lousy.. cant put all these down in words..
I Just Cried. I Don't Know Why.
silly as it may sound, i feel beautiful when i cry. one of the few occasions when i can look ugly and feel beautiful at the same time. when i say cry, i do not refer to the tears of rage that flow immediately after quarrels/fights/badbiochemresults. i refer to..erm..well, actually i don't know what i'm referring to. sometimes, you think back on stuff that has happened, and you just cry. remembrance ~ there are centain moments in life that you can replay over and over again and not get sick of, that you can savour over and over again and still crave for more, that you can visualise only as a blur but yet thereafter cry like a child all the same. these are moments that coexist with you in a mysterious fashion even though time has passed them by. these are moments that have left imprints in your atria/ventricles/both. these are moments that make bitches&heartbreakers&meantutors pale in comparison. these are moments to die for. these are moments to live for. the way your hamster with pretty red eyes used to move around noisily in the now-empty cage. the way your grandpa carried you on his shoulders at east coast park. the way your parents hid presents around the house when you still believed in santa clause. sometimes, you watch sad/sweet movies or listen to sad/sweet songs, and you just cry. but you refuse to stop watching/listening because you enjoy crying youself silly over them. because crying makes you feel so alive and so full of emotions. crying transforms you from insensitive to sensitive, from apathetic to empathetic. you realise that you too are capable of being touched. when people tell you that only babies cry, they're lying. shoot them. a truly mature person takes with him all that he has encountered in the different stages of his life as he grows. he is able to step into a new stage without having to cast aside all that he has learnt in earlier stages. he remembers to cry, for that is what he has learnt when he was a baby. hmm so actually, all that im trying to say with this huge chunk of words is that: crying can become an emotionally-satisfying addiction if practised on appropriate occasions. owells. *giggles*on a different note, a random thought:suppose we seek perfection and find perfection and gain perfection(be it in terms of relationship, career or looks),will there eventually come a day when we get too used to perfection and grow sick of it?

anw, the trip was really really good.. although i was complaining a lot haha coz of the cold n the lousy water quality n everything being so ex, the drunk ppl on fri nite who make a lot of trouble n are damn freaky, the inefficiency, the dodginess, but i realise i miss london A LOT.. its a really nice place to be in, great company, beautiful scenary, pace of life is good..not too fast like in sg but not tt slow either.. actually i kinda haf this tiny winy tinge of regret tt i didnt go to uk in sept to start my med course like everybody else n chose to apply to aust to try n save money.. but i guess everywhere will bring me good experiences n aust will be good too!
