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

On the final weekend before I left Singapore, I went to catch up with the Magic gang, and the Laoshu gang to watch 17 Again. Well, forgive us for not entertaining you =p. The movie is very good, very funny and quite a lot of interesting lessons about being a parent. As you might guess, a down on his luck guy ends up being 17 again, and gets to change and relive his life again, in the present age.
Heh... I stayed over at Koh Wee's place at the next day we went to eat at Founder Bak Kut Teh, which is a very famous place to eat bak tuk teh. When we went inside, all the walls were covered with pictures of the owner and the various celebrities who've went there before. You've got practically the whole Mediacorp stars, Sun Ho, Jay Chou, Energy, Evonne Hsu, and that's just the people I know! There were tons of other stars. Obviously, no Muslim celebrities =p.
Here's a road sign I saw while going there.
Yeaps. No kidding.
I went off later to attend service, which was the final part of a relationship series Pastor Kong had started. Guess what the topic was about this time? Sex and desires. Lmao, lucky me? It was probably the most explicit service I've ever attended, with the drama talking about a lot of inneudo and all.
Okay, that was written back in the last week of April. Yeah, APRIL! I had gotten too lazy to post it after a while, and I let it slip. Anyway, I did say that I would blog the stuff I didn't blog about right? And I've got a HELL lot of free time now. Why not do it now?
Okay, so let's backtrack to APRIL (this is so Wai Kwannish) and take a look.
I took this snapshot before I went back to KL. It's my collection of Jolin CDs. Yeah. She's the only singer I support by buying real CDs and merchandise. Lmao.
A family of cats also moved in to the shoe cupboard outside the house. These kittens were born very recently. But since, I'm typing this in August, I guess it's not so recent anymore -.-.
Pretty blurry, but the kittens are really cute!
I used my handphone camera to take the pictures. That's why it's in such bad quality.
Here's the road where I nearly got robbed, twice. They're building a rich-man's housing estate here, so it'll be lit up soon, and perhaps safer than before. No more dark short cut for me anymore.
After service, a bunch of us went out for drinks at Clarke Quay. Even though it was night, it was freaking HOT! We kept sweating, and the alcoholic drinks didn't help one bit. And that sachet you see hanging there? It's actually a drink. Yeah, where the needle supposedly is, it's a straw instead, and you drink through that. Pretty cool. The chairs are like hospital beds too. Only thing is, it's outdoor, so there was no aircon. And guess what's the name of the bar? Clinic. Yeah -.-.
Some of us left, and some of us went to Rebel, a new club I've been hearing about. Well, no bottles were sold that night, for some reason I forgot, so we had to stick with cups. The only available table was right beside the speakers so we could barely (actually, we couldn't) hear each other. So we'd type what we wanted to say in our phones and show it to the other person. Lmao!
It was also another sober night for me, 'cause I had 2 free drinks, but it wasn't enough. So the girls (two of them) donated a drink each to me. And Karnex didn't want any drinks, so I had his 2 drinks too. So I had 6 freaking drinks, which I took at one shot, and even a while later, I was still so clear-headed! Oh man! My alcohol tolerance is TOO high! Geez! The dancing was a bit awkward, since I was clear-headed, and it was like 5 guys and 2 girls (in a circle, mind you). Overall though, it was alright.
When we came out, I saw Gary smoking for the first time (lol), and some stranger that was beaten into a bloody pulp, talking with police officers. I stayed overnight in Jonathan's place that night. Yups, Jonathan Lim. Finally saw him after so long. Well, we shared a lot of things that night. Very enriching.
I went to Saint Andrew's Cathedral the next day. I hadn't prayed in that church since I moved to Kuala Lumpur, so although I have City Harvest Church Singapore and KL, I still like the feeling Saint Andrew's gives. I prayed there for around 4 hours straight, and took some pictures (for the people who've never seen the interior). Then I went back home, and went back to KL the next day.
Some eagle statue. On it's back (and wings) lies a hymn book.
The main altar of the church. Very beautiful.
This is the view of the nave, from the point of the altar.
And from the back, the nave again.
This is the cover of the baptism water. The church is Anglican, but it's very Catholic-ish. I don't know if they'd call his holy water.
One of the windows higher up on top.
One of those tall windows. Stretches from the bottom to top, around that, anyway.
This window actually had 4 very cool symbols on them. But due to the sunlight shining through it, and the use of a camera phone, it looks real bad. It looked really nice in real life though.
Another view of the nave, from a side angle. Those black things are LCDs. Yeah, I've never seen a traditional church with LCDs before, seriously. A touch of old and modern!
They've got hymn books and Bibles for anyone to read there. I liked this hymn the best.
