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

My first day in, and I already met up with the Magic Gang. Woots.
Usually when I came down I would take a bus in the afternoon or evening, and arrive extremely late in Singapore, go to whichever friend's house I was staying in, and just casually catch up and chill, rest and go out the next day. Rarely have I ever had an actual event on the day I came down itself. I remember the last time this happened was clubbing with Gary and Darren and Double O, After arriving from KL, I dropped my stuff at Koh Wee's place, and went off clubbing. On the same day. Needless to say I was exhausted, and with the amount I drank that night, for the first time I actually lost my memory and woke up on the MRT with no idea how I got there. This kind of alcoholic memory loss would occur in the future, but at that time it was the first time, and I was freaked by how I couldn't recall ANYTHING. I've wondered at times how it felt to lose your memory, and I experienced it firsthand. Yeah. Yu En, ever the doctor, later explained it was due to the alcohol affecting thalamine, something involved in the storage of memories. Gee whiz.
Anyway, some of them weren't free Sunday, when I came down. Seong Voon and Joel weren't able to make it, but thankfully, the rest were available. The moment I reached Woodlands, I went straight to Koh Wee's place, changed (travelling 5 hours works up a sweat) and off we went to Causeway Point! And well... it didn't look like Causeway Point anymore, lol. It looked so different, so much more modern, and a lot more aesthetically pleasing. the outside hasn't changed at all, but the interiors all looked really Orchard-ish. There's still plenty of construction, and like 75% of all the shops have moved locations. Several stores I'd been seeing for the last 10 years have gone. Everything was so different. And the Magic Gang that showed up was also different. Heh, for one thing, Nicholas and Wei Yu now smoke! Lmao. The first smokers of the Magic Gang, Nicholas also had a shaved head. Zameer's in army, Wei Yu's working in Yahoo! and Wilson and Koh Wee have more or less remained the same. We ate in Hot Tomato catching up on many things, and later walked around while chatting and crapping around. It was a great time to catch up, and Koh Wee's opened a chalet for the weekend, so I hope that'll lead to some fun as well later on during the week.
Anyhoo, meeting up my dad in JB. He's moved from the old place in Bukit Mewah, to somewhere I don't know... so let's see where my new address is in JB. Great. Now my 12th address of my life, in a sense.
