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

Pretty ain't she?
She's my girlfriend... June.
Heh... funny thing how we met. I was at a friend's chalet recently, and I got to meet her. I didn't know anyone there, so I was kinda just standing there at times, not doing anything. Eventually, June spoke to me, asking why I was so quiet, so I just replied and we had a good conversation going on from there. So anyway, after drinking some vodka, I got to talk to June and some others, knowing them better. I was very attracted to her, and she's just so un-Asian it was quite a big break, that I met someone who's got wits and is funny.
So while the others were playing games outside, we just chatted and chatted, and even when all the others went to sleep we still chatted on the bed. Afterward, when we were both kinda tired, we decided to sleep. Since there were so many people and only two beds (four, if you count the pull-out mattresses) I had no pillow of my own, so I just shared the pillow with June, even though we were on different mattresses. We then faced each other and whispered a bit before drifting off to sleep. I was dead tired, but after a few minutes I decided to open my eyes and look at her before I really went to sleep (sorry, couldn't help myself). I opened my eyes and she was looking at me too! Woots anyone?! I really felt close to her that moment. So we just stayed like that for a while, looking at each other with no words. It was so dramatic and romantic at the same time. Freaking sweet. After a while of silence, we whispered a bit more, due to the awkwardness and sweetness of the moment. After a while we decided to really sleep and I didn't open my eyes this time. Heh.
So I got her number and email, then asked her to be my girlfriend on the phone. She accepted. Then a few weeks later I found out she's got a boyfriend from England. -.-.
Belated April Fool's! I actually wanted to type that on April Fool's itself but I kinda got lazy. Wanted to see genuine reactions before I let the truth out... but oh well, yeah. At least you see what I wanted to prank on people =x.
Anyway... you have no idea how nice it is to sleep after a lack of it for 42 hours.
Gabriel had a helpers meeting at the Riverwalk on Tuesday so since my cellgroup helpers decided to eat at Funan, I went to City Hall, then I found out they changed it to BK Eating House. Zzz. Since I was free with half an hour, I went inside St Andrews Cathedral to pray a while. There was only one person aside from me, and for a while later I was the only person inside the nave. Freaking grand, to pray alone in pure silence and solace in such a beautiful atmosphere. I found out that St Andrews was demolished twice, before the current one was erected. And that the design before this one was extremely detailed and grand, which the current one pales in comparison to. I'm already impressed with the architecture now, so to imagine something even more beautiful than this, it must have been quite a sight. Aye...
Had a great time praying there, but I had to leave early to meet up the rest at BK Eating House. So I walked from St Andrews to Riverwalk and joined the others before we went to the Riverwalk. Had a very short message and ministering with slaying in the spirit, but it was a tremendous blessing nonetheless. Really puts a lot of perspective on our roles and responsibility. After that I was very bored and the rest of my cellgroup wanted to go to Aljunied to eat... not my fave place, so I called up Adriel to meet up since he asked me to join him when I'm free. Went to Orchard, and ended up at a place called Chips. It's near Hard Rock Cafe, and Tuesday is beer night! $10 for a jug. Yeah, JUG. Freaking steal. It's kinda small, but the atmosphere is quite cozy. And you know what? I fit right in. No kidding. If I dressed like the people in GT Zone, I'd so look out of place, but my dress style is like totally in tandem with everyone else inside. Haha!
Everyone's very open minded too. You can take a seat beside anyone and start a conversation, and you'll have extremely stimulating topics. You really learn a lot about other's views and perspectives, and its just great to speak to so many open-minded people about anything. I made a new friend, who just so happens to be a tattoo artist who has learnt scarification. Apparently he'll give me a discount if I go get one (tattoo, not scars!) and he specializes in dark and abstract art. Could this day get any better? Sort of. There was a fight upstairs so Adriel, Joshua and Mervyn told me to go out to avoid the trouble since police were coming -.-. So while sitting outside, I met Paul Twohill, of Singapore Idol fame, and turns out he's a regular and knows everyone there (everyone knows one another there). Got to say hi and shake hands before knowing some more people who frequented Chips. Aye. After a while, a girl called Ping joined us. Adriel, Joshua, Ping and I went to Mac to eat before accompanying her home. No NR services, so we walked from Orchard all the way to Bukit Timah. LOL. Nuts! But fun. We chatted at some shelter nearby her place till it was 6am and walked her back before taking our own buses. Took 961 with Joshua back to Woodlands and reached my place at 7:30am. Yeah, I'm insane.
And I couldn't even sleep! Ashley called me up asking me to go swim with my cellgroup Joshua and kept disturbing me for one hour before I finally got to hang up and sleep. Sheesh. I had to wake up after barely any sleep though, to meet up to Jonathan and Daniel for lunch at Tampines. After our lunch, went to Aljunied to slack as Hui Zhen and Isabel gave Bible study. After that went to Riverwalk with Hui Zhen to attend our own Bible studies. Aye, I've got Kenneth, Zi Yun and Soo Jia in my class. Jessica too, though she wasn't free that day. Authority for Victory!
Went home with Eleanore and caught up on a lot of stuff. Aye, when I went home I dropped to bed and slept almost immediately. And you know what? No nightmares! Seems that being freaking tired prevents nightmares =/.
Anyhoo, today I was supposed to go out with Tiffany, but I overslept. Zzz. Nevermind, postpone our "date" to another time. LOL.
Okay, I hope people don't get a misunderstanding here. Geez. Please read in context! And get my jokes! And DANG, I never knew I had so many blog readers. Scary.
