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

Aye... back to update.
Saturday was freaking eventful, no kidding.
Saturday at noon I was at Expo for a little updating on feedback and such, I attended service. 'Cause I went for the Jurong one previously, it actually was my first time for the Expo service. The drama was brilliant! No offence to the Jurong drama, but I enjoyed the Expo one much more. Since Easter's over, thought I might as well give spoilers. It's about a person who creates a device that has the ability to download your thoughts and replay them digitally. The moral implications of the device are shown and the creator struggles with his past, where his wife cheated on him. Eventually, working on version 2, he goes back in the time of Jesus and sees Jesus' miracles, compassion and eventually, His crucifixion. He also saw Peter denying Jesus, and Jesus forgiving Peter, which eventually taught the creator, Leonard, to forgive his wife for her mistakes. Happy endings in the end.
After that I went down for the second service, for support. Enjoyed the drama again, and seeing it the second time, somehow made me think more on the messages to be learned through the drama since I knew what to expect. Second chances. Forgiveness. One thing I always wonder, how long shall we wait? Also, the best line in my opinion "I underestimated the power of memories". No kidding.
After that I went down to Changi Airport T3 to meet with the rest of the cellgroup and eat Mac! Had a good time knowing the new friends, and also learning some disturbing history from others -.-. I went off after that to go to DXO, partly because I was asked to, and because Audictive was performing. Hey, gotta support my classmate right?
Well, TOO BAD! I didn't get to see their performances. When Gary and I arrived, we noticed a lot of the students hanging outside the club, not going in. Then later I saw Min Kuan and Jackie (Audictive, if you don't know) walking out. I was like "Eh? Performance finished already?" And they told me something I only thought could happen in Channel 8's 7pm and 9pm shows. Turns out that some guy ticked off someone, and that someone had a parang. He chased the guy, who eventually ran across the streets. The guy being chased was lucky, he managed to escape. Parang-wielder however, wasn't so fortunate. He got hit by a car (The Newpaper reported he got hit by 2 cars, in succession... ouch!) and with all the ensuing chaos and police, the whole event was cancelled and only normal DJing was provided, with no guests or special performances. All those under 18 were forced to leave too. With refunds. Oh, and those above 18 were allowed to go in for free.
SERIOUSLY, I never expected that to happen. Freaking exaggerated if you ask me. I mean this stuff only happens in movies and dramas! But when Gary and I saw the blood on the road, and with the surrounding police and ambulance, it just hit the reality of it stronger. Geez. So we separated from Lynette and her friends to chill at The Coffee Club at Clarke Quay (yes we like walking). Drank something I didn't like. Zzz. So much for "recommended". Had a great time chatting about (in someone's words) every blinking thing under the sun. Also learned more about each other's cellgroups. After the long talks, we went to his place to hang around and watch movies and videos. Saw 4. Pure genius, that movie. Loved it, even though it was super gory and I was eating while watching. Heck!
Half past 6, I took 913 to Causeway Point and went back home to sleep for an hour, before waking up for service again. Went to Boon Lay and man, bus rides are super comfy when you're dead tired. Met up with Jessica and her friend Hong Yi? We went for service and sat only a few rows behind the pastors. Gotta love the atmosphere there! It's been so long since I attended a service there (not counting the Good Friday service) and having almost front row seats is a good bonus. I stayed awake for the whole service and enjoyed myself again. No technical mess ups this time, and I realized that Melvin's cast as Judas again!
Jessica met up with Candice to help out in Dialect Church and Hong Yi and I met up with some N337 members to eat at Mos Burger and later on, go home.
I reached back at 5pm and dropped to bed straight away, jeans, chains and all. I just woke up at 2am. Now blogging. Aye! Happy Easter everyone!
