Standing Ovation!

Watched the Oscars? NO?! should have. it was one of THE MOST brilliant planning of an event i've ever seen! The stage, bringing back the past winners to introduce the nominees and announcing the winner, the performances, the band, and not forgetting the HOST! it was WELL DONE indeed.

I'm ever so proud that Slumdog Millionaire won 8 out of the 10 Oscars! BRILLIANT! not to say that i did not expect it, but they were up against very good movies. Even the performance that A R Rahman did alongside John Legendmerged very well together. ALSO, the perfomance by Hugh Jackman, Beyonce, Amanda Seyfried, Dominic Cooper, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens was SO ENTERTAINING! doing their rendition of the musicals of the past and present. Hugh can really sing!!! WOOOT :P

A Little Change

haha! i say Little because the only thing i changed is what u see above :) my cousin came over last weekend and he had his camera with him. bored out the brains that he was, he made me be his muse. he JUST bought the camera and wanted to try it out on me. i said, what do i get in return? and he said.. i can drive his Subaru around my neighbourhood! i said, HELL YEAH! but, the catch was..the NEXT time he comes by, i'm allowed to drive his car. since i obtained my licence a month ago.

but it was fun! guess how many photos he snapped?? 606 pictures!!! HAHA! random snapping. out of the random, only 9 photos was what he kept in his camera. the supposed "good ones". BUT, i must say. it was LOTSA FUN =)

The Dream Interpreter

This is unbelievable! yesterday, i had a dream that my mom, bro, sister and i were walking in a mall. suddenly my teeth started falling out. not all, just one by one it started falling out. i collected all those that fell out and told my mom that i wanted to see my dentist aunty to fix it back again. i woke up soon after. i just mentioned my dream to my other aunt, Aunty Mai. she insisted that it meant something. so i went to this book that my uncle lent to me, The Dream Interpreter by Tony Crisp and checked out what Falling Teeth meant.



If you dream of your teeth falling out, the cause may be sense of losing someone you love of who is close that has gone away. this leaces a gap in your life such as you feel when a teeth comes out.

when i read that, i could not help but be startled! my aunt was like, it makes sense since Shobz just left. thats why u feel that god! crazy isnt it how dreams have a hidden meaning. if you really pay attention to it, it tells you things that u cant describe sometimes. haha! =)

Its Hard to Say Goodbye My Love

This post is written to and for all the friends of mine who have left, leaving or about to leave. Particularly for Shobini Balraj, Radin Faizal Arif, Thayasheri Subramaniam and Suvanya Sukumaran.

i think all this while, i've been postponing the fact that the people i care about, as mentioned above are leaving. in my head..i keep thinking. another week. another week. but HECK, now its today, this week, next week, and next month. time seems to flyby way to fast nowadays. WAY to fast. but i'm glad to say that i've remembered and always will remember the times we all have shared.

my darling cousin,

Suvanya Sukumaran, my dear darling cousin. we have gone through our whole lives together. our WHOLE LIVES. we've grown up together since you were 2 and i was 1. we have always confided in each other and learned so many life lessons together. i have always turned to you in times of need and so have you. i learned to take risks when i'm with you. risks in other ways. haha. i've opened my way of thinking when u confronted me about certain things. and through all that, i still LOVE YOU. although u and i have VAST difference in music, we still hear each other our whenever we have new songs in mind. times have never always been so easy for you and thats why i'm here. growing up without a proper support from both parents has always been difficult. i understand that. but dont you worry about a thing. i am always here for you and so is the aunts for your mother. Preet is under good hands with me and i will promise to take care of her. she's still a young girl and has alot to learn, but she's matured so much. learning from you, me and chechi. i'll be coming over there next year. i will NOT change my mind. i'm gonna work my hardest and come see you in Uni of Queensland. we will stay together, study together and have fun together. you have always been my second big sister. i love you very much, huney. see you soon. =P

my dear friends,

Radin Faizal Arif, i dont really know if u will read this or not..but i just wanna say, i wish ALL THE GUYS OUT THERE ARE LIKE YOU! i have never met a true gentleman until i met YOU. u are truly one of a kind. i'm happy to have worked with you last year. we have gone through alot last year. haha. ALOT. you have shared your stories with me and so have i. anytime u needed someone to talk to, i was here and so were you for mine. anytime either one of us gets upset, the other will be there to calm the other one down. u were my anger management and i was yours. haha. yet, through all that u still tease me EVERYTIME. thank you SO MUCH for everything u have done. i am truly gonna miss you. hope to see u there someday. *cut the nuts!*

Thayasheri Subramaniam, hard to imagine another one of us girls is leaving soon. i have known you since primary school yet we have never been close. since the gang came about and we all have been spending so much time together, i'm glad i've got to know you better. you are always there when i need a second opinion about my actions. everytime i've had my doubts. you will always be my drinking partner and my dirty jokes understand-er! haha. somehow, everyone else tends to get it a lil slower. ahakz! thank you so much love for all the times we've had. you have always been so confident and i admire that about you. Love ;)

Shobini Balraj, my lord woman. how much have we gone through? this year it'll be our 5 years of knowing each other. 5 years of enduring each other's pain. 5 years of going through all our problems and solving it. 5 years of loving the fact of having each other when we need each other. 5 years of being my best friend. 5 years of being, my sister. i love you so much hun. SO MUCH. thank you SO much for being there for me when i always needed you the most. when times were hard or even when they were happy. thank you for just being you and teaching me to be strong. i love you dearly and hope to see you next year =)

Hard To Say Goodbye Lyrics

We didn't make forever.
We each got to go our seperate way,
And now we're standing here, helpless,
Looking for something to say.
We've been together a long time.
We never thought it would end.
We were always so close to each other;
You were always my friend.

And it's hard to say good-bye, my love.
Hard to see you cry, my love.
Hard to open up that door.
You're not sure what you're going for.

I didn't want this to happen,
But we shouldn't feel sad.
We had a good life together.
Just remember, remember, all the times we had.
You know I've always loved you
You know I always wil
But no matter how far I may go
In my heart
You'll always be there
And it's hard to say good-bye, my love.
Hard to see you cry, my love.
Hard to open up that door.
You're not sure what you're going for.

You'll know I'll always love you.
You'll know I'll always care.
And no matter how far I may go,
In my thoughts,
You'll always be there.

(It's so hard) hard to say good-bye, my love.
(Baby, it's hard) hard to see you cry, my love.
(It's hard) hard to open up that door,
When you're not sure what you're going for.

(It's so hard.)
Good-bye my love.
(Baby, it's so hard.)
We didn't make forever.
It's so hard.
I can feel there's something more.
(When you're not sure what you're going for.)
We've got to work it,
We've got to try,
Though it's hard, so hard
We have to say good-bye
Though it's hard, so hard
We have to say
We didn't make forever.
How could we loose tomorrow?
We didn't make forever.
How could we loose tomorrow?

love you all, take care and strive to achieve your dreams.

these past few nights i've been having the weirdest dreams. god only knows what they mean but hey.. THEY'RE DREAMS, DO THEY EVER MAKE SENSE? like srsly, do they? =S

two nights ago i dreamt that my close girlfriends and some of my Ausmates attended a wedding. it wasnt just any wedding but like some BIG celebrity's wedding. no idea who's one it was though. but it was a red carpet event. so my girlfriends and i wore over-the-top embroided sarees. it was BEAUTIFUL! the next day (in my dream) i read the newspaper and we were on the main events column!

this whole thing must be a result of me preparing for my sister's engagement/wedding and watching the red carpet events on E! News.

last night i had another dream. this was rather disturbing. it started with me and a few of my friends at a hotel near a beach. we were walking around the hotel(which was sort of like a mall on the inside) and i saw DJ there with his bunch of Coursemates. the ones he always hangs out with. he suddenly walks up to me and says all of these things that wanted me to be with him. he even mentioned "i love you" which is WAY to strong a word a person would use. in the dream i accepted him back (which would be something i'd slap myself now if it happened). then a whole group of my friends joined us and went to the beach. we set up this lot just for us and dugged the sand to hide our treasure. (yes i know, weird!) we had gold and ancient artifacts and what nots. we had to hide it away from Anil Kapoor cuz he was the villain! haha! the story went on..cant remember it now, but it ended with me being chased around by this maniac who wanted me to give him a kiss on the cheek to let me go.

This weird dream could be a result of me wanting to go for a holiday by the beach. =) DJ. god only knows why he's in it. could be cuz of his status change on FB that would have resulted in me having him there. which i dont really care about. i honestly dont. the treasure? haha! that must have been cuz i watched National Treasure: Book of Secrets a few days back. Anil Kapoor? Slumdog Millionaire! watched it twice now, must be stuck in my head. but the last part, the maniac chasing after me. i have got NO idea where that came from. =S

there's just too many things going through my head. haha! sometimes the dreams i have are rather funny, sometimes they arent.

somehow, i cant wait to find out what i'll dream of tonight =)
