Stuck at home for these few days...
Expecting lots of work to do come next Monday...
Exam is oh-so-near...
Damn. Life gets so uninspiring sometimes.
I remember way back when I was a kid,
You treated me just like how my parents did.
The care and concern that you showered on me,
Even a blind man would be able to see.
I remember once when my leg felt pain,
And my slippers had gotten some stains.
Without saying a word you carried me on your back,
That feeling I can't describe and I can't forget.
It was just a few months ago that you felt ill,
The cancer that ate into your life against your own will.
It reminded me of grandma and how she lost the fight,
Everyday I wish you could get out of this plight.
But you didn't and now you are gone,
I guess it's because grandma didn't want to be alone.
I know she is waiting to take your hand,
And bring you to a more peaceful land.
小叔, please rest in peace. And bless your wife and children with good health and luck.
Life will never be the same without you. It never will be.
There are some things in life that you can get too much of.
And then, there are those other things which you can never get enough of.
But most times, it is just that one thing which you can never get.
So tired of hearing excuses. So tired of listening to complaints. So tired of understanding reasons.
Had a wonderful, splendid, memorable, eventful, fantastic....and the list just goes on and on...
Outing with the NHSS peeps (and Sean) last Saturday.
It was simply fun! And definitely the most successful gathering we had for a long, long time. Slightly more than 20 people turned up in total, and it was really a waste for those who couldn't make it.
My lord, it has been 10 years since everyone enrolled into NHSS. And damn, it's not even known as NHSS anymore!
How old have we gotten, eh?
At the end of every gathering like this, it just leaves me eagerly anticipating for the next.
And we are going to Kukop for a chalet in September! Looking forward to it!
You guys simply remain the best! *sMiLeZ*
As you have guessed it, yes, I am in Brisbane now!
So far, so good. I am not freezing to death as of yet. Haha!!
The weather's kinda strange, according to the people here. It's supposed to be winter, and very cold. But somehow, it gets a little warm in the morning.
Been stuck around Brisbane city most of the time, but there's actually pretty much to see.
Went to Movie World today! And yes, it's not exactly cheap at 69 Aussie dollars per entry. But lots of pictures taken though!
It's a little tough coming to terms with the 2-hour difference. Seems like after 4 days, I'm still a little stuck in the Singapore time.
The 1 shitty thing is that I'm getting fat. Damnit. Yeah, the food here isn't exactly cheap, but they come in pretty huge servings. I've been eating fries (or chips, that's what they call it here) for like 4 meals out of 5. Looks like I'm gonna stay off fries for quite some time when I'm back.
Yup, I'm loving it here in Brisbane. Life is much slower, the weather is much cooler. People are friendly, and the food...well, it gets a little boring sometimes but it's still quite manageable. I'm just a little surprised that I'm surviving without any rice for so long.
Alrighty, will post again something later this week if I get the chance to. Bert's graduation is tomorrow afternoon, going to the Australia Zoo (yup, the Steve Irwin one) on Thursday, and Lone Pines, which is a koala sanctuary on Friday.
I wanna hug a koala!!
But yeah, there are still some things that I miss in Singapore... =)
And Brisbane is about 48 hours away.
I don't know why, but this feeling apprehension always fills me before I go overseas.
But it's gonna be fun. And most definitely burn a hole in the pocket.
How do you know, without asking...
How important you are, to someone...
Who is important to you?
Welcome to Cheng-xun's Blog. Call me CX if you want. I think that saves loads of trouble for people. Graduated with a Diploma in Media & Communication from SP, currently serving (quite reluctantly) the nation and hoping to go to Australia for further studies one day.
I love music and I love food. I love writing but I'm not that good. Soccer is my first love for a long time, but it can't take me through the rest of my life. Would you? *winkz*
Save the hate you have for this world, and you'll probably find it a much better place to live in.
