such an endearing song.



“In life, you will realise there is a role for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you, some will love you, and some will teach you. But the ones who are truly important are the ones who bring out the best in you. They are the rare and amazing people who remind you why it’s worth it”


One of my favourite quotes.


I was browsing through my photos on facebook the other day and I realised one thing, 

I am so awkward in photos, mostly the non-candid ones (weird I know)
and even as the picture is taken, I know that I am going to look awkward
It feels as if all the micromuscles throughout my whole body perk up, get pumped and just fizzle out very unglamorously during the whole picture taking process
heh, first world problems much?

I’ve got myself some new juice for the pod
One of them is this one:

how bizarre is the music video eh?but I think they’re oh-so-swell!
here’s another one:



When I was younger, I had a checklist of what I think the ideal the guy would be for me
1. Play the guitar (why? well so he can play mushy songs to me and for me)
2. Romantic (duh)
3. Caring
4. Charming
5. It would be much easier if I just tell you I wanted Disney princes’ characteristics (yes, eye candy is included fo sho’)
Of course, this checklist was also influenced by the oh-so-cheesy-corny teenage chick flicks of that century where the common storyline was :

Once upon a time, there was a girl, who always had geeky/nerdy characteristics, usually smart and pretty (but usually protrayed as ugly). This girl has an annoying sibling, can be older or younger but usually of the opposite sex. She is unpopular due to her geekiness and she usually has her posse of unpopular kids. And there will always be a group of mean girls and of course, the oh-so-gorgeous loverboy. Splash a bit of drama over here, a bit of a broken heart over there and congratulations, you can write your very own teenage chick flick.
hello hollywood!

10 years older (and if I may say so, wiser), I realised that we are all not living in Hollywood nor Disneyland (no shit) and these stories only happen on screen (or 99.99% of the time)
Two people can be the most beautiful people in the world who are the most compatible but if there is no chemistry, it won’t last
What is chemistry?
simply said : mutual attraction.
looks fade, but if it’s real, it’s a ’till death do us apart’ kinda deal
and true feelings will never fade

so cop, what’s the point of this post?
I guess what I’m trying to say is that checklists change/evolve, and having ticks on a checklist is just the very fine tip of the iceberg

there’s so much more to it.
so much more complicated, can’t-be-explained-simply kinda things.
you know how they say you should follow your heart?
I say yes, follow your heart, but you really ought to lead it with your head
and hey, include that gut too
it sure has helped me many times before.
