Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?
Friday, January 2, 2009
Aye... about time for an update I suppose? Heh... since I'm like covering practically 2 weeks of my travels here, I thought I'd cut it into parts. Easier for you to read, and uh... not "easier" for me to type, but oh well, what the heck.
Alright... so on the 19th I came down to JB following my mom and uncle Ben, who were driving down at the same time. I did have an ulterior motive for coming down so early to Singapore though... clubbing! Gary had told me about Double O quite some time back and said that the alcohol there was bloody cheap. It is! It only costs $12 for a vodka jug. Yeah, JUG! That's freaking cheap! Way more worth it than buying a bottle. With cheap booze, people get high easier, when people get high easier, everything's more fun. Things were a little messy, and in the end only Gary, Darren, his friend (sorry I forgot your name) and I went. It was quite alright, fun even though it's only four guys.
I drank 2 jugs of vodka plus a peach bacardi (damn nice!), plus I drank a few cups from some strangers. I don't know why I did that =/. I was still extremely sober throughout the night, which kinda annoyed me 'cause I thought the 2 jugs shoulda at least got me more intoxicated. Towards the end of the night though, due to the lack of girls, we were all trying to at least get some "female involvement". Only 50% success though, out of the 4 of us. Gary managed to dance with a girl (woots!), and I ended up getting a girl's number, who's name is Prudence. But guess what? She's a science teacher teaching chemistry in a secondary school. Aiks! Geez... I hit on a teacher -.-. Darren, the self proclaimed pro at picking up girl's didn't do anything at all! And his friend was a little too busy taking care of the rest of us when we were dead tired. Aye, it was enjoyable though, at least. But I lost my bracelet in the process. Argh!
Next day I went for service, and I surprised my cellgroup by showing up, heh. It was a candlelight service, a pre-Christmas service so to speak. As always, the candlelight service was extremely beautiful, and deeply majestic. We fellowshipped at Brian's place, which I found out is the usual place for the cellgroup meetings for them now, and after eating and watching some movies, I accompanied Jessica back home. Yeah, it felt weird accompanying her back after such a long time of not doing my "duty", haha. It was a great time catching up with her though, and throughout the bus journey we talked about her relationship stuff, my relationship stuff (as always, a mess), and Twilight. LOL.
I stayed over at Koh Wee's place, since we'd be visiting Yao Qi the next day, because she fractured her toes. Yeah, stop laughing. I don't know how you fracture toes! Toes! Aye, we chatted, watched movies and some episodes of Phua Chua Kang and Police and Thief, and fell asleep later on. Upon waking up, Amanda, his girlfriend, joined us and we went to see Yao Qi, plus Angela and Hui Fen. Had a simple time of just chatting and all, plus an interesting book that was brought along which talked about the different personalities of people. I'm mostly sanguine, and a bit choleric. Hm?
Koh Wee and I went to Junction 8 later on, which for some reason, looks a lot bigger. I know there was construction last time, but I didn't think it would make it to this size! Anyhoo, we looked around for him to buy his present for Amanda, which ended up being a pink laptop. Wowserz -.-. We spent the night doing the same things as the previous day and slept a bit, waking up at like 6am. He needed to book in to his new camp, since he joined the navy. I went to find Nicholas, since most of the Magic gang wasn't free. We played basketball at Republic Poly, after such a long time. Surprisingly, my skills weren't totally gone, and after playing an hour, I got my touch back. Yes man! We got bored of playing though, since there were no strangers to play with, and went back to his home, playing Fatal Frame 3. I loved Fatal Frame 2, but 3 felt a little different. Still fun and creepy though, at least. Later Joel came and we played some Magic, me winning both rounds. Joel looked fatter than before (no offence) and his hair was super long. I swear if you look at him from the back he really looks like a girl! Meh... after playing till evening we explored Causeway Point a bit before I headed home to JB.
Next day I just spent it at home, catching up with my dad, simple stuff. On Christmas Eve though, I went down for service again, and had our Christmas drama. Titled "Operation Save The World", it's about the Christmas story, but through the eyes of the angels instead. They're in charge of setting up the stage for Jesus to be born, in the process, things go wrong and there's all the humour, plus the cute sheep! It was a tad too short, compared to all the previous dramas, and no songs, but it was enjoyable. Kudos especially to the angels that flew down from the sides of the hall. That was really impressive. Pastor Kong then gave a short message about letting Jesus change aspects of ourselves when we invite Him into our lives. We went to Marina Square to eat Mac, of all things, and settled at some corner. We sort of counted down to Christmas, We didn't have the actual time, so we just shouted Merry Christmas when most of our phones showed midnight. Later on, there were like 5 other loud shouts of Merry Christmas from other people all at different times, so honestly, I don't think any of us got our countdown's correct -.-.
As always, beautiful; the candlelight service.
Next morning was Christmas Day itself, and we had the same service in the morning, with the drama and all, except without the candles. Afterward, the half of us who remained went to Changi Airport to eat, and chatted a bit before Hui Zhen, Esther, Jasmine, Karnex and I went to Parkway Parade to just hang around. There's like nothing new there -.-. We bumped into Fu Qi though, and Candice joined us later, then we had a few rounds in the arcade. Candice and Hui Zhen were joining Michelle and the leaders to eat, but Karnex and I, supposedly going off, ended up joining them. A lot was ordered, and I ate the most -.-. Lol. As always. I stayed over at Karnex's place and we just chatted. Next morning I played with Bobo, his dog, who's like freaking CUTE! Also patted Pretty, his other dog, who looks a bit like a hot dog, since she's getting a lot fatter -.-. Not bad, spending Christmas with your cellgroup members. Simple, but very satisfying.
Bobo is like uber cute.
Cute I say.
I think those pictures should wrap up this post nicely?
