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

Where do I even begin?
So much has happened in the last few weeks.
I'm probably never going to update what I said I would update, so I might as well give a brief summary of what I typed in last time... let's see... on September 29 I wrote "Singapore, Festival of the Tritone, Tyranny of the Eight, Miki, broken hard disk, James' birthday, Khar Loo, Essenism, tarot cards, Kai Yih, Caffeines, work."
Singapore... I went to Singapore for the first time in 2011. Had a great time catching up with the Magic Gang, Debbie, E458 and E507, and a lot of other church members. Koh Wee booked a chalet that's only reserved for army personnel, so we had a huge chalet, huge LCD TV (and he brought his PS3), and couches that were unbelievably comfortable. Magic Gang came over and it was like we were all back in secondary school again, just older, and with smokers in the mix now. Lol. There's a lot I can't remember... don't know why.
Festival of the Tritone. Number 2. Justin organized it, and we had 4 bands. Justin's band, Sacwrath, my band Forsake Me Not, Asri's band Kolbenfaust and lastly, the invited band Unexpected Mercy. Unexpected Mercy was the biggest out of all of us, but let's just say they weren't professional in timing. It was great fun though, and I enjoyed it tremendously. I was the one who designed the poster/flyer too.
Tyranny of the Eight. Maosun, Masayo's band, and Kolbenfaust are both signed to TFHM Records. They organized a gig and we went to support. The place was a gorgeous place perfectly suited for metal gigs, and it was great to see plenty of local bands.
Miki. She called me at 4am one night and I was wondering what the hell was going on. She ran off from home due to some issue I shall not disclose here. Let's just say I am pissed off with her dad. I drove over to her place, brought her back to mine, talked a bit and stuff, and slept and went to work like a zombie the next day. I realize my home is like a refugee house. Ran away from home? Can't stand your parents? Need a place to stay? Want a place to drink with no consequences? Come to my house! LOL. Anyway, she was well taken cared by my mom, and Miki's mom was tearfully grateful to me. No worries.
Broken hard disk. While Redzuan was transferring stuff to me, he accidentally dropped my hard disk from table-height. Needless to say my hard disk DIED and everything inside was lost. Thankfully most of the stuff was already in my laptop, but some pictures were gone forever, such as the Penang trip photos, and several others. Games and movies I didn't keep on my laptop could be downloaded and taken from others at any time, so it didn't concern me too much. Took the stupid company a month and a half to give me my warranty-guaranteed free replacement though. Zzz.
James' birthday. We celebrated! With alcohol. He puked, and made noodles with his puke. I'm not kidding. It looked like a local dish called Wat Tan Hor (I don't know the spelling). Yuck. But job well done.
Khar Loo. No drama here. Just reminded myself and shared the story with a few others. We still haven't spoken since the final email.
Essenism. We finally caught up after so long! We spent more or less the entire day chilling out, watching a movie, playing in the arcade and stuff from early afternoon all the way to night. Great, great time spent with them, especially after so long.
Tarot cards. Justin and I know a person who went to a Taoist tarot card reader who seems to be full of crap, but otherwise convinced this person we know that he had true powers/skills/charlatanism. We went to disprove and expose this guy, but we couldn't, because we hadn't made an appointment, and he had a full schedule. LOL. Craps. Was hoping to be James Randi during that time. Zzz.
Kai Yih. I caught up with her after a long time. She was expelled from Nottingham University due to failing a resit paper so I had to help out with her appeals and admissions to other universities. We're just friends, as it has always been.
Caffeinees. Been going there a lot more than usual in the last few weeks. They'ved moved, and the place is still as awesome (and expensive) as ever. However I love the atmosphere and the food, and with Symposium there its the icing on the cake.
