I'm bored!!!
Really bored.
Can't help to think about beaches, hills, gardens.
Basically, the outdoor!
After my recent trip to Wilson Prom, I can't stop thinking bout going to the beach everyday and just hang out there doing nothing - how nice would it be?
I also can't stop thinking about trying new things, swimming with the dolphins, fishing (really? mmm not sure bout the baits and the dead fishes), even rock climbing looks quite interesting.. :P hahaha
Disappointed that I didn't go to any of the Prom's falls - like the one in the Grampians.
Can't stop thinking bout road trip. Maybe to Adelaide.. or back to my favorite destination, the Great Ocean Road.
Considering to get squash (or perhaps tennis) lesson...
What happened to my dance lesson?
Been learning to ride a bike - OK, only one session - but I've give it a try. :P Will do so again soon.
I want to be on holiday... Can't function properly without one soon!

Holiday... mmmmmmmmmmmmm *dreamy look*

In the episode "Your Money or Your Wife" on the Season 4 DVDs, there's a song at the very end with these lyrics:

I'm shaken to the core
I've picked this scab once more
You want me to know
How happy you've grown to be
I'm not above going down
The rollercoaster, the go-round
Anything but how happy you've grown to be
Happy without me
Without me, without me, without me,
How happy
Without me, without me, without me
How happy

I'm dying to know who sings this and what the name of the song is. If anyone can help me, I would really really appreciate it. Everywhere I've looked so far says it's "Displaced" by Azure Ray, but I already have that song and it's totally different from this one.

De-clutter / Organize My Life

I was browsing my iVillage RSS feeds today and I found these quizzes about life, its chaotic level or its complication level... I thought it might be useful to know where I'm at...

Here's the result that I get when I take the "Is Your Life Too Complicated" quiz by iVillage...

Woman on the Line
Your busy life is threatening to knock you off your shaky balance. While you're doing your best to stay in control, one more to-do on your list (or one more bill, or sleepless night) could send you over the edge.

What can you do to make things easier and feel better about your life? It's simple: try these 15 easy tricks.

And here's the result that I get for the "Is Your Life Too Chaotic" quiz...

Prone to Chaos
You probably find yourself organized at times and lost in chaos at others. One day the beds are made, the bills are paid and you are on time for all of your appointments. Suddenly something happens -- you get stressed out at work, your mother calls to criticize you or your heating bill skyrockets -- and next thing you know, your home is full of clutter, the dishes are piling up and you are waking up every morning exhausted. Does this strike a chord with you? These stressful times in our lives are called "chaos triggers." But there are ways to combat them so that they won't throw you off course in the future.

So, these links below might comes in handy, if you're a bit like me... :)

Wilson's Prom Pictures

Some pics from my visit to Wilson's Prom a few years back...

Normally, I forgot things very easily, but somehow this trip stick with me.. Maybe it's the excellent views, maybe the time I went, maybe it's the people that I went with, I don't know, but it just does... It was a great trip...

This picture below was taken after about an hour long hike up the hill... The view was amazing, and unlike other places I've been, there was no gates or fences around the area... it was stunning!
This was taken around 10 ish I think, we were at the squeaky beach.. the sands were just white... it was warm and really nice... and when you walk on the sand, there is this cute squeaky sound :P

It took me a while before I can take this picture.. Had to wait for the right wave to hit the stone, had to wait for the right time to press the click button.. :P It's definitely worth the wait...

Sugi took this shot... this birdie was just standing still there.. waiting for its picture to be taken.. and Sugi couldn't resist... turns out to be a great pic :P

This is a bit away from Wilson's prom.. I believe this was taken in Phillip Island.. Great sunset... I had to get Sugi to park the car just for me to take this picture... Until then, I didn't realise how quick it is for the sun to set... it was extremely quick, it's like every second counts.. and if you don't take the picture at the right second, it's gone... :P

I can't wait to go again... It's next week... I really hope and wish that it's gonna be great. Actually I know it's going to be great, but oh well... *fingers crossed*

Daily Quote for 18th November 2006

Now is the time

There's no value in resenting what must be completed. Just get it done, and then there will be nothing to resent.

Don't waste your time worrying that something will go wrong. Just get started, and cross each bridge as you come to it.

Stop looking for excuses and reasons to put it off until later. Focus instead on the real value that will flow from making it happen right now.

Instead of seeking to avoid effort, look for how you can put real joy into that effort. Imagine choosing to get it done and really meaning it.

Be delightfully free of the unfinished business that follows you around and holds you back. Get busy and get it done.

Add energy to your moments as you transform your burdens into blessings. Choose right now to get it done.

-- Ralph Marston

Making the BIG decision

I've been feeling a little lost for couple days now.
I'm not sure if I want to go somewhere, and if I do, where to from here?
I feel like I've been in the same boat for quite some time and it's starting to become a tad boring.

It doesn't help that somehow it feels like the environment surrounding me is dropping hints that adds to my 'lost' feeling.
The magazines that I read, all of sudden, talked about this big question that I have all over the pages.
The series that I watched, now mainly shows the scene that somehow linked to the big question.

Perhaps, only perhaps, I'm the one who's linking everything to the question...
Perhaps, I need to step back a little and free my mind from this question...
Perhaps, someone could help me in finding the answer...

I'm sure I'm not the only on who came across this BIG question.
In fact, I know some people who have come across the same question.

What do you want to do in your life?
How do you know that you won't regret how you're spending time now?
Should you stick around or should you move on? Why?

My imaginary shopping trip

Gosh! I think I'm in need of professional help. I can't stop thinking bout shopping. Seriously. I just can't. Somehow I managed to come up with all these excuses to go shopping. Buying stuffs that I know doesn't mean much. They will definitely excite me temporarily, but in terms of usefulness, I really doubt it. Since it is extremely difficult for me to curb my desire to go shopping, I thought instead of actually doing the shopping, I could pretend to be shopping. I'll window-shop online, looking through websites and list them here, just to make me feel as if I own the item already. (Kinda pathetic yeah?)

First of all, we definitely have to visit my favorite shop, i.e. Cue.

Secondly, Beauty Heaven...
Which girl can pass through make-up counter without at least eye-ing their stuffs, especially if it comes in pretty packaging like these stores...

Then, Borders, for sure! By the way, I signed up for the newsletter, and guess what did I get? A 20% discount voucher for a full-price item!!! How nice!

Next stop, kikki-k is definitely worth checking out. They change the world of stationeries around. They somehow manage to make them colourful and FUN! Definitely will re-vamp your work desk.

Last but not least, we shall visit peter-alexander. They've got the nicest PJs ever. They create this world full of bed time accessories, and let me tell you, they've got the cutest stuffs ever! When you're on their site, look out for the christmas catalogue. Definitely worth skimming through.

Hmm... bed time... zzzzZZZZzzzzz g nite!

Felicity (the tv series) - my lesson

Past couple days, ok.. maybe at least two weeks now, have been 'Felicity' time for me. Felicity is this really really great TV series that was popular back in the year 2000 or maybe even before that. There is this really great site that covers everything bout this series, felicity page. I've been watching it for a while now. Lia recommended this series to me a while back, and I've been watching its four season bit by bit, which is good cause it allows the character to grow on me.

Since I've spent so much time on it (four season of ~22 one-hour-episodes, i.e. freaking 88 hours!!!) - I'm determined to get something out of it. You know how they say watching TV series is such a total waste of time. OK, not they, I'm one of the people who say so, but then hey, I think you could actually learn from it.
For example, after finish watching One Litre of Tears, I definitely appreciate what I have, my health, my body, more. Albeit it might not last long, but there is an effect, and of course I don't want to see someone suffer to learn that lesson. On top of appreciating what I have, I also learn and realise how painful it is for Aya (the girl who suffered the spinocerebellar atrophy disease). It really makes me feel like I should volunteer and help, whenever I can. I really should and I would. I really want to do something bout it.

Now, Felicity... I've learnt so much from her, her relationship with Ben and Noel, Elena, Elena and Tracy, Javier, and basically the whole crew(even Meghan and Sean). Nearly every episode inspires me. I could really relate to how she feels, cause I've been there, and there are times where I feel like I'm still there, even though I shouldn't still feel that lost.

The one thing that I really admire though, is the way she react to things/events. She's very calm. She's a total opposite of me, even if I'd like to say the other way around, but she is. No matter how big a thing happens to her, she could somehow remain calm and think before she says something. I'm such an idiot sometimes. A very impatient idiot. I tend to express what I feel. I tend to say what I think. I can't even count how many times this behaviour of mine cause me problems.

When I look at her, I feel embarrassed by how immature I am. I feel like I should learn to be a bit more patient, and thoughtful. Yes, thoughtful.

I used to think I'm a thoughtful friend. Until one time, where I've made this HUGE mistake of betraying my friend. A very valuable friend too. Since then, I think less of myself. Seriously. Much less. That was the one quality that I feel that I can rely on. But after that, I'm not so sure anymore of myself. Since then though, I've learnt to live with it. I mean, there's nothing that I could do to take that back, and not that I wouldn't if there is, or maybe I wouldn't. I don't know. I'm lucky though to have people around me, who loves me no matter what, and have been really kind to me, whom have made me realise that I can only learn from my mistake. And believe me, I have. I have learnt the lesson, and to say the least, I think the mistake has made me who I am now. So I guess, everything does happens for a reason.

Watching Felicity has made me realise so many things too. We, human beings, all go through phases. There are times when we are down, there are times when we are up. As long as we have the people who we care about and care about us, we'll be fine. Because when we are down, they'll be there for us, and vice versa, when we are up, we'll be there for them. It's just great. There are many different ways of being there for someone too. I used to think the only way to be there for a friend is to talk and talk and talk, but guess what, I've learnt that simply saying that "I'm here if you want to talk" and giving them their space means a hell lot more than the gibberish that you just blabbered out without thinking.

Another thing that I've learn, is that it is great to have someone who believes in you, who believes in what you do. It makes a difference. It really does. Confidence really makes someone able to do the best they could. At the times where we lost our self confidence, having someone who believes in us, helps bring back our own confidence. Having someone to look our for us also means a lot. Basically, I guess what I'm trying to say is, we're social being. Human, simply suffered, without another human being.

There are so many other things that I've learn while watching Felicity... I can't put them in words. I suppose I'll just have to make sure that I've learnt my lesson and do whatever I can to improve myself. I'm grateful. Really am. For my loving family. For my dearest boyfriend. For my extraordinary best friends. For all the kind people I've met in my life. I might not have been the best I could to some people whom I've acquinted with, but I'm never gonna stop trying. Because once I stop trying, I will stop improving.

All in all, Felicity is a great TV series... I'm still up to 9th episode of Senior Year, but I seriously HIGHLY recommend it to everyone out there. Definitely worth watching. Especially when you're feeling lost, when you feel like you're uncertain with your steps in life...

Felicity - extract

Senior Year - episode 5
Ben tells the AA group that "maybe it's not about who's the best student, maybe, maybe it's about who cares the most."

I reckon he's right. Extremely right.

Senior Year - episode 4
I'm shaken to the core,
I've kept this ??? once more
You want me to know how happy you've grown to be
I'm not above going down
The roller coaster that goes around

Anything but how happy you've grown to be
Happy without me
Without me, without me, without me, how happy
Without me, without me, without me, how happy

The above is the lyrics of the song that was playing in the scene with Meghan and Sean at the Loft's living room. It's a really really nice song.

So, I was trying to find the song's title - Google-d hard, and look what I found..

please help :) [09 Apr 2005|11:24am] thisbeautifulme
[ music | Felicity Senior Year soundtrack ]

Hi everyone!! I am hoping someone here can be my saving grace. I, like all of you here, am a Felicity addict, and am finally re-watching my boxed set of Senior Year.

I am looking for a song though, and all the websites that list Felicity episode songs are wrong on this one, so beware. I am looking for the song that they play at the end of "Your Money or Your Wife", and part of the lyrics are as follows... "anything but how happy you've grown to be, happy without me."

It is NOT "Displaced" by Azure Ray as many of the sites seem to claim, and I am in LOVE with this song, it's gorgeous.

I would appreciate any help you could give in this arena!!

Thanks guys!

Someone was looking for the same song! Aha! *LOL* I find it's really funny. But she/he hasn't received any reply for the post... I hope one day I'll find the song though. Just like when I was looking for Afhgan Whigs - 66 (OST She's All That). I looked for the song for more than a year. Now I hardly listen to it, but the feeling when I found the song, was magical WOW!. And I will NEVER be able to forget the song. Because I fought hard to find it.
Hmm I guess it's true, we all appreciate something more if we had to fight hard for it.

Well, anyway... if someone knows the song title, please do let me know.

Thanks in advance!!!

Great inspirational quote
Life is like a puzzle. I truly agree with the content of this post.

Mo-vember - to sponsor mo-ing males
Men's Health is promoting this event where people can sponsor males who grow their mo-s during the month of November.
"At the start of Movember guys register with a clean shaven face. The Movember participants known as Mo Bros then have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their moustache and along the way raise as much money and awareness about male health issues as possible." - extracted from the Movember site.
The fund raised will be contributed to the cause of males health, mainly Prostate Cancer, Male Depression and Testicular Cancer. I know this from some of my work colleagues. =))) Go Victor, Mark and Dave!!!

A great site with interviews of a bunch of high-profile career women. It's very inspiring to see how far they've come and to find out their recipe of success. Coincidentally, when I checked, it was featuring Cecilia Ahern. She's the author of my favorite book (P.S. I love you)!
