Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Sunday morning I had to wake up early for the soccer competition "The Dream Move". A few weeks ago Karnex asked me to join the soccer team knowing full well I'm a basketballer and I haven't played sports in months. Oh well, I joined for fun.
So anyway, my team was made up of 10 people, Karnex and Jonathan Fong among them. Our team name was Brethren United FC, which I came up with. While I'm the only basketballer, turns out the rest were soccer fanatics and pros, which kinda made me feel like the lousiest player on the team (and possibly all the competitors). Details of the matches aside, we reached the quarter finals where we lost 1-0. And the worst part is, I was wasn't playing during that match! I was subbed out on that match and watching them lose is freaking heart wrenching, because you can't do anything. Zzz. So close to reaching the finals...
Oh well, at least I had one thing to be proud of, and which everyone in Brethren United acknowledges. Our team never lost in any match I played. HA.
We received a free goodie bag, which had magazines and stuff. And 'cause we were youths, they didn't give us FHM. LOL!
Went back to Malaysia where I met up with Jun Wei to get my tattoo at long last. I called my mom to tell her that I was going to get one. She wasn't happy but said okay. So yippee! Jun Wei and I went to meet his friend where I looked through the tons of books and pictures of the tattoo designs. As I usually do, I didn't pick out the default designs, even though some were really beautiful... so I decided to try something else. I took two separate designs and took out the parts I didn't want, leaving the remainder, which would be merged. Result? A gothic cross fitchy with a fully blood red tribal designed dragon on it. Woots!
Hmmm... the process isn't as bad as I thought. Its a lot less painful than I imagined, and the outlining is more painful than the colouring and shading. It took some time for him to sterilize the needles and prepare the colours, and I had all my tattoo questions answered. Amazing, really, the reasons behind some tattoos... geez. Anyway, the whole process took about an hour, where I was casually talking to Jun Wei most of the time, and after the pain and stings... at last! My tattoo was finished. I needed to take a shower to clean the blood and I couldn't go swimming for 4 days (as if I do). He pasted some stuff over it so that the bleeding wouldn't be too bad on the way home. Well it was bleeding... so much it made the sticky thing not sticky (sounds so noob) and while going back home, there was a big red puddle spreading on my white shirt, which I only found out after I took off my shirt. Geez.
And just to top it off.. yesterday going to work, I saw a Skyline while crossing over to the Malaysian Checkpoint! AHHH! Skyline! Then going to work, at Aljunied MRT's overheard bridge, some person hung underwear over the railings. Female underwear. I think you get my drift...? Then going back, some moron kept brushing my head with his newspaper, even though there was so much room and he coulda put it somewhere else other than on my head. Freak.
