A new beginning

I checked my phone and got a miss call and voicemail from Gem. So I checked the voicemail...

Seems that her boyfriend broke up with her via sms. Shit... that's the worst way to do it. How can someone treat a relationship so lightly to actually break up via sms?

I called her and consoled her. The usual friend thingy...

Sad to say that's all I can do. When it comes to relationships, all friends can do is just to listen to what that person has to say and when they need advise, we give our two cents. After all, we are only bystanders. Nothing more than someone who lends the shoulder to cry on when something happens.

The next day FunFun called and broke the news that she got hitched the guy she's crushing on for a month or so. She was so excited to let the rest know so we planned for another yamcha session later that night at Central Perk.

As expected, when she broke the news everyone was excited and wanted to know the details. To make a long story short (or maybe I'll blog about this later) it's a sweet one with a happy ending...

Well, I guess that's just life... How something ends and something else begins. Whatever it is, at the end of the day love will still prevail and make someone else happy.

Like Ashley Simpson sings 'Love makes the world go round'. (OKOK, Powerpuff Girls sang that one too =.=)

Here's to the L-word.... Cheers!

Blowing the candles yet again

Listening to: Guang Liang - If you still love me
Feeling: PMS-ed

Ekk.. In approximately 12 days it'll be my blog's second birthday! Can't believe that I could actually keep up with blogging for such a long time...

It's safe to say that we've came a long way, pinkyinthesky and me...

And in 9 days I'll turn 24. It's scary how time flies.

When I was in high school, I had always wanted to grow up as fast as I could and work, get money the works... now, I just want to fast forward to retirement (or alternatively rewind to 1982). I know I shouldn't be bitching about this but I am just feeling so darn tired of everything that is happening...

Flashback to me in bright blue (ugly) uniform, I've always thought that I'll be happily married by the time I turn 24. Ekk.. how not true. I am married to my job, that's true. Apart from that, nothing true..

Anyhows, I'll just hang on in there and I am sure that I'll move along, day by day... Oh well...

Happy effing 24th birthday to you too Gem...

We're old

Loneliness in a song

I love this video.

Fort Minor feat. Holly Brooks - Where'd you go

Sing along if you wanna ...

Where'd you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone.

She said "Some days I feel like shit,
Some days I wanna quit, and just be normal for a bit,"
I don't understand why you have to always be gone,
I get along but the trips always feel so long,
And, I find myself try and stay by the phone,
'Cause your voice always helps me when I feel so alone,
But I feel like an idiot, workin' my day around the call,
But when I pick up I don't have much to say,
So, I want you to know it's a little fucked up,
That I'm stuck here waitin', at times debatin',
Tellin' you that I've had it with you and your career,
Me and the rest of the family here singing "Where'd you go?"

I miss you so,
Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone.
Where'd you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone,
Please come back home...

You know the place where you used to live,
Used to barbeque up burgers and ribs,
Used to have a little party every Hallowe'en with candy by the pile,
But now, you only stop by every once in a while,
Shit, I find myself just fillin' my time,
Anything to keep the thought of you from my mind,
I'm doin' fine, I plan to keep it that way,
You can call me if you find you have somethin' to say,
And I'll tell you, I want you to know it's a little fucked up,
That I'm stuck here waitin', at times debatin',
Tellin' you that I've had it with you and your career,
Me and the rest of the family here singing "Where'd you go?"

I miss you so,
Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone.
Where'd you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone,
Please come back home...

I want you to know it's a little fucked up,
That I'm stuck here waitin', no longer debatin',
Tired of sittin' and hatin' and makin' these excuses,
For while you're not around, and feeling so useless,
It seems one thing has been true all along,
You don't really know what you got 'til it's gone,
I guess I've had it with you and your career,
When you come back I won't be here and you'll can sing it...

Where'd you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone.
Where'd you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone,
Please come back home...
Please come back home...
Please come back home...
Please come back home...
Please come back home...

A feel good thing

Listening to: Kelly Clarkson - Beautiful disaster
Feeling: Restless

Thursday was one of those glorious days when time just flies and everything goes right. First, faxed and emailed a ton of people regarding loans I have to do tomorrow and got all of them to come in for my spread. *relieved smile* Then realized that I had featured 4 mom blogs in my May issue so decided to check them out to see if they saw the feature (ok, correction. It was just a review =.= but I fought for it when Boss kinda rejected the idea)

Turns out that 3 of the sites got wind of the feature and bought the magazine and 2 of them seemed pretty happy with it. Only problem with the third mommy was that I absentmindedly *read: idiotically, never check... stupid* put her occupation as a 'full time housewife' when in actual fact she's a full time working mom. Dude... I would have been pissed as well if someone got the facts wrong for a review. For that I apologize again. =.= Gomen!

But you know what? Seeing their reactions towards the article made me feel so god damned proud of what I do. It's one of those things... like suddenly, I feel that all the late nights and hard work carrying bags and bags of clothes turn into a working pleasure. Is that what Seems call 'taking pride in your work? It's just little things like that that would make your day whole. :) And it did, I feel so cheap sometimes. LOL. Thanks for the support, moms *if you're reading this*

Check them out ...

Ashley's mom
Mama to 2 Beas *kawaii!*
Baby Smooches and baby Brendan
All about Zara *When I first logged in I thought it was the fashion brand. That's how I found this blog* P/S: Congrats to Zara's momma!! She's going pregs again!

Post thought: Looking at these blogs made me wanna have babies!!!

Left the office at 6.50 sharp *it's a miracle!!!* and drove like a mad woman to One Utama for a movie. It was pretty good. Better than what I've expected though I still cannot register the fact that Calista Flockhart is no longer a wacky lawyer. If you're bored and have nothing else to watch, this is a good choice. Really can't wait till DaVinci Code opens, that's like the highlight of the summer blockbusters. *really wanna watch Heaven's Bookshop as well.. It's japanese and sappy and it seems like a nice one to watch. Any takers?*

Should try sleeping now. Meeting's at 9am tomorrow and then a full day of loaning for me. Who needs the gym when you're working in a magazine?

An open letter...

Listening to: Damian Rice - Blower's Daughter
Feeling: Agitated... But must chill! Hrmmmmm

I guess what I am going to say is the same thing I've been saying for the longest time. If any of you feel it's too harsh, I think it's because it strikes a cord with you.

So me and my clique, we hang out nearly everyday. It had been so since, like 4 years? It's sort of like this understanding that we call each other out for drinks at Central Perk. It used to be me calling since only me and Nini had cars then and we will pick the rest up.

Fast forward 3 years, and G came back from Down Under and we started working, Sarah S started driving and my job requires me to work late so what we would do is meet up at Central Perk at a certain time to have drinks and dinner. That sounds a lot like a typical episode of Friends right?

Of recent, actually ever since I started working in Her World, I had never really been able (sometimes, be bothered) to call everyone out as Sarah S and Kst got together. I would usually get G to come out for a short smoke (because she stays nearest to me) or if I'm working late, I'll call Sarah S and the rest to come out for a short drink. And I have to admit, I am the most scatterbrained person you can ever find... I forget. So there are some people that I might leave out for drinks.

My gripe is this, if a friend wants to come out for drinks all this friend needs to do is give me a call... I have never said no unless I am in the middle of something or if I am working. I have taken this shit for the longest time, friends saying we don't call. Have these people ever thought that they could have called too?

Take this for example, group goes out for drinks and suddenly someone realized, 'Eh, why so and so not here ar?' and we'll be like, uhoh! Shit happens. There is no reason why we don't call people out.

And I cannot take the fact that people take it for granted that everything that I do I have to get them to come together with me. I wonder how long can I hold their hands? There are times when I just want to have a one-on-one with just one of my friends. So am I obliged to call everyone out? There are times when I want to just be alone... Is there also an obligation that I call everyone out?

Always... it is always this problem. I am just so sick and tired of this.

Gem, if you're reading this, yes I am referring to the post that you wrote about us forgetting you. Please remember of the times when we asked you out all the time and you kept saying no. We had never held anything against you and instead respected your decision to stay home. We kept asking you out then, kept asking you what's wrong and what's up only to be met with silence and denial.

Now that you're with him, you tell us that you do not spend enough time with him. So we let you be... hence not asking you out. If you're free and want to go for drinks or dinner, all you have to do is to just call us. But if I say I am not free, I am sorry because I am really not free. You have been there for me all the time and I will try to do the same for you. But if I cannot fulfill this, it is because of work.

Do not expect me to put friends in front of work, because I'm at the point where I really need try my hardest to make it in my chosen career path. But just to let you know that I will drop anything I have in my hands if you have an emergency to be beside you. That's what friends are for. And all I ask from your part is just to be a little more understanding and pro-active. You want us to hear you out but if you don't take what we have to say to you what's the point of us advising you anyway?

And in times like that I feel that you don't need us to be there to give you advice but you just want us to hear you talk. I have been frustrated at this for the longest time, I think you should know from the reaction I gave you the last time.

Reading your post made me see streaks of selfishness and words without thought, if you want to put it into that way let me remind you of the time you holed yourself up. We did not even once think you have abandoned us, so just because we didn't call you out for drinks once or twice you think we had abandoned you? Think about it...
