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

Aye... suppose I should make an update now. I purposely didn't update my blog so that whoever chanced upon my blog would see my post on open-mindedness. Yeah... I've been thinking of writing that post for quite a while, 'cause I recently read about a few differences between Singaporeans and Malaysians attitudes. While Singaporeans generally are more quick to criticize, Malaysians tend to be more accepting, but when they criticize, its harsher than Singaporeans. Yeah, I'm a foreigner alright? So I'm neutral! Anyhoo, it reminded me of a few incidents back in the past where random Singaporeans would spout criticisms at me for dressing the way I did. That, plus a recent incident involving a person I call Mr Jealousy inspired me to finally get on with it. There's more I wanted to add, but I think this should suffice for now.
Anyhoo, as you saw in the Ducky pictures, I stayed over in Henry's place last week with the people in the picture. There was Ruz, Kok Kin, Licia, Henry (his house of course) plus me. Mostly playing games and having pillowfights, plus me hugging Ducky! Heh! Oh, we played a drinking game too, I Have Never. It was quite a bore compared to the last time I played it though, because for one thing, almost no one drank except me! Ruz can't since he's Muslim. Henry chooses not to drink. Kok Kin too. Licia is allergic but she drank more than all of them, though she took it easy of course. Plus the truths they revealed were mostly dull... especially Kok Kin's. Geez! Why would I need to know you have a laptop?! Or that you know Lih Ting's full name?! Freak.
This week was the final stuff of quite a few subjects. So naturally it was tiring and very taxing. On Saturday, I was anticipating the holidays so much I didn't paint that well in class. Can't blame me! Anyhoo, although the usual Essence group was supposed to eat together, a few things cropped up. Ruz needed go off for something involving his sister, then Kok Kin wanted to meet his friend, and Wai Kwan and Leonard were off hanky-pankying in J4 (I assume). That left me and Miki to hang out together. Haha, reminded me of Monday, where I spent the entire day with her. Anyhoo, after eating we went to check out Euphoria (KL's Ministry of Sound branch) 'cause she wanted to request car stickers. In the end, one of the staff was friendly enough to give us a small tour of The Deq, but we couldn't check out the main dance arena, 'cause it hadn't opened yet. It's very classy and sophisticated, and very cozy too. We'll definitely check it out soon.
I went for church later and although it was just the usual service, the presence of God during worship was just so great. During "Here In My Life" I just wept. It's been a while that I've had such a tangible presence. Just wonderful. Hmmm... the title for the sermon was Deriving True Satisfaction, and it was quite fitting, considering the tremendous presence that day. Afterward, we went for fellowship with W32 and the conversations were hilarious and fun. Greatly enjoyed my time, plus I made it known I had a tattoo and showed it. Guess there's nothing left for me to hide from the cellgroup anyway?
And today! I just slacked at home all day! Damn nice! But as usual, I was woken up by a nightmare. Pfft. I didn't die this time round though, which is rare... instead I dreamed about something really weird happening in church, and someone else dying. Then I woke up and realized I'm freaking hungry. In fact, these last few days I've been very hungry. Friday night even after I ate outside I was still hungry upon going home and had 4 bowls of rice! I emptied the rice cooker! Then on Saturday even though I ate a nice meal during fellowship, it wasn't very filling. I went home (this was half an hour later mind you) and ate a large bowl of instant noodles. That wasn't enough, and I still proceeded to eat another bowl. Then this morning I had 3 bowls of instant noodles, which wasn't filling. My mom later bought some other kind of noodles and I finished it along with 4 donuts, and I was still hungry.
