What the Stars Say for 31 Oct 2008

The stars say, "Tell someone what you really want out of them -- you two have the right connection".

Qiaojing, I really want you to give me your atm card and pin number. Can you feel the connection, baby?

Avenue Q-uiddity


Avenue Q is hilarious. And it tells the truth, such as the internet is for porn and Bush is only for the time being.

Q is Quintessence of Quirkiness, Queerness, Quip and Quick-wit. Even for the most Querulous audience.

Quid pro quo for your dollar!!

Now, excuse me while I use the internet for more purposeful activities, if you know what I mean.

Fed Up Fed

Fed up with the sliding economy, the Fed cut interest rate half-point to 1%. Now, the US dollar is falling. Smartest thing they've done since forever!

With the US dollar below 1.47 now, who cares about Kanye already. Slide, dollar, slide!

Kanye is The King

Kanye proved he's the King of Edgy Hip Hop last night and keep us entertained for closed to two hours! I had thought he'll be in and out of the place in under an hour, but he delivers. He sang all the four songs I know, to boot. I'm happy.

Except when he tried to blind me with flashing lights. I have this feeling he wanted his concert to be the last I'm able to see. He must know about Rihanna and Kylie's tickets...

Less than two hours to Kanye's concert. Can't wait!!! I have got super duper good seats, to boot. It's going to be a blast!

Kan-yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah~

Just Like Match-making

Joey just left my place. Hmm.. that sounded wrong.

Anyway, we spend a good few hours screening profiles of people whose places Jac and I could crash during our trip in Dec. It's almost like my recruitment work; only this time round, instead of looking at number of years of working experience, we're looking at number of futons.

Must-have list for our hosts:
1. Beds or futons or air mattress or sort
2. Central location
3. Love to party
4. Non-smokers

Now, it's time for the hosts to screen Jac and I.

It's almost like match-making, only less stressful. And oh ya, no pre-nup involved.

Shock Value

I was shocked to see the bottle swing across the head. But not half as shocked as I was to realise the bottle isn't empty!!

What a good waste of whisky...

Almost Lover by A Fine Frenzy

Your fingertips across my skin,
the palm trees swaying in the wind
images
You sang me spanish lullabies,
the sweetest sadness in your eyes
clever trick

I'd never want to see you unhappy,
I thought you'd want the same for me

Chorus:
Goodbye my almost lover
Goodbye my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
I should have known you'd bring me heartache,
almost lovers always do

We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me
images
And when you left you kissed my lips
you told me you would never
ever forget these images, no

I'd never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

Chorus

I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot drive the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning
without you on my mind
So you're gone and i'm haunted
and i'll bet you are just fine,
Did i make it that easy
to walk right in and out
of my life?

Chorus

*If only you're not a ciggie fan, my almost lover. Guess things never turned out how you ever
wanted them to be. If you think this is about you, get over yourself already, unless you speak
French or Spanish.

HSM 3

Watching High School Musical 3 on its opening day certainly wasn't my idea of a Friday night out but given the options I had, it seemed the best. At least I was entertained for almost two hours.

RusSIAN Ballet

The RusSIAN ballet performance was soooo uninspiring.

Joey and I nearly fell asleep. This is unbelievable! Russian ballet is one of the highlights of my year and yet, I'm sorely disappointed.

You cannot expect us to be trilled at a repeat performance of last year's. Did the choreographer quit on the group and no replacement found?

Wisdom Tooth: The Sequel

During a survey of how stupid each of us is, the following conversation (which I think will be used as evidence in the court for a particular murder case) took place.

Jessica: I don't have any (widsom teeth).
Wii-nii: They are not out yet or you removed them all?
Jessica: They are not out yet.
Weihao: Oh, you have no wisdom to begin with!

I'm sure Jessica would very much love to hurt Weihao in ways he never thought possible.

Red Alert

There is a bug flying around the living room and Ah Boy's tail is on red alert!

*swish swosh swish swosh swish swosh swish swosh swish swosh swish swosh swish swosh swish swosh swish swosh swish swosh swish swosh swish swosh swish swosh swish swosh swish swosh *

I'm a Natural

I have this nagging feeling that I have overspent these two months. This nagging feeling tells me too that I have an assignment due soon and I have not started on it. Given my superior ability to ignore such feelings, I continued to stay glued to the tube. I'm a natural, I tell you.

Jess and Ying's Big Night






Jessica and Ying's double birthday celebration and we pulled out all stops. 


Johnnie didn't stand a chance. He was emptied in an hour. That explained why Jessica, Vernon and I were in pleasant disbelief.

Flamenco Sara Baras

It's da:ns festival again! Been looking forward to it. The festival opens with flamenco dance by Sara Baras. I wasn't expecting much from it but I was entralled! The flamenco dance is soooooo good. My heart rate goes up just by watching them swirl.

This year's is so much better than last year's. Loving every minute of it!

Loving:
The purple full circle dress
The fringes
The leather. A nice un-traditional touch

Not Loving:
The polka dot scarf
The turquiose blue and purple combo

Strangely, I feel inspired to run after watching the performance. However, my calves ache from just watching the tapping. I think the running can wait.

One Step At a Time

Today, Chewy is one step closer to fulfilling her dreams. She passed her driving test and got her driving license. She can officially embark on her F1 quest. If all else fails, she can always be a cabbie. I'll be her most loyal customer.
