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

I hope you like this new blogskin? I got bored of my old vampire one, so I was thinking of what to put as my new one. Ruz gave the idea of Fatal Frame. Although I finished Fatal Frame II around 2 years ago, I still love the game. I searched to find a few more pictures, and I found out that Fatal Frame 4 is out! To my dismay, only in Japan. Apparently they didn't think an international audience would like it. Zzz. Took a few hours to add in the crimson butterflies with one of the official wallpapers. The ghost in the middle is the Box Woman. A freaking scary mini-boss in the game. I like the lit candles! But I'm not sure if first-timers will know those are the navigations =/.
Anyhoo, on Thursday I hung out with Lucas, Ruz, Henry and Kok Kin in Pyramid for quite a few hours. Henry and Lucas, both Para Para Paradise pros, versused each other and Henry won by a mere 500 points! Damn close. We wanted some girls to come, because at least it would make it look normal. Having 5 guys around a Para Para machine is freaking gay! Eventually, a girl did come. But she was an extreme tomboy! That did NOT help at all =/. In fact, it might have made it worse! We crapped around in Mac later on for a few more hours, just talking about so many things and joking around.
And when I was heading to the washroom, I ended bumping into Lip Hai! I don't think any of my current readers will know who he is. He's from Riverside Secondary in Singapore, and one of the JB gang (aka the KS gang) that studied in Singapore, along with Adrian and the rest of the usuals. Lip Hai was probably the most civilized and the best one to hold a really good conversation with, lmao. We caught up and just stood near the elevators talking and updating each other on what's up. On my side, my sister has left the house most of the time, and my parents divorced. On his side, he goes back to JB fort-weekly, and his dad passed away, which I had found out when I last went back to Johor/Singapore. My deepest condolences.
Cellgroup later on that night was actually on chairs. It was my first "chair cellgroup" 'cause we didn't sit on the floor this time. Interesting.
The weekend was also good. On Saturday we had service and Keith preached. His message wasn't really a super-spiritual kinda thing. Instead, it was more like a reflective reminder of our goals in the start of the year. Also, he touched on being balanced in going for your achievements and studies, and still having a good network of friends to balance it out. We shouldn't be so emotional with our friends to the extent we forget about all we want to do. But at the same time we shouldn't be so caught up with work or studies that we don't even bother to stay connected with our friends. Those that support and encourage us.
Frankly, I know some people who should've listened to this sermon. Very enjoyable, and quite a departure from his usual style, which is usually more on practical life steps. At the end, we also took a quiz that measured how we were with our self, work/studies and social life. The details shall be my next blog post.
Most of the members didn't join for fellowship that night, so it was only Dennis, Kean Hoong, Joshua, Issey, Rebecca, Ai Lee and Sze Ying. We ate at Old Town White Coffee, which still doesn't impress me, and later went to eat at a durian buffet. RM 10 per person. And its pretty good!
Then some of them decided on going for karaoke at Neway. Take note my MSN friends! When I type "neway" it means "anyway"... because "n" and "e" plus "way" make the same sounds. Same goes for "nething" which Soo Wen thinks it means "nothing". However, in my proper-spelling blog, Neway simply is... well, Neway -.-.
As usual, since I've slacked off for singing for over 2 years, my voice sucked. Ai Lee sang very well, and was probably the best in the whole room. The food was nice, and I tried some alcoholic drink called Kampai. Very nice! Very sweet, and the alcohol enhances the flavour. Yum~. We sang from around midnight to 4am. Yawnz. 4 hours of hurting the others ears with my voice.
And also, it was a very comfortable night. Yeah. Very.
