Chanced upon this beautiful melancholic song by Ling off mb’s blog.

Lyrics:
God he turned and walked away
I couldn’t think of what to say when plane engines fall through your roof and
I broke my knee while walking down the street that I live in
While no one was passing by

Chorus:
Life moves along and it trickles down the cheeks of every beautiful boy
Time comes along and it breaks every bone in your spine
Into the flight of night
Insomnia strikes and hopes alight
We set ourselves up to fall
So we stargaze and we write down all the things that we’ll do
Fall into the river our pockets full of stones
Full of stones..

A Woman’s Right to Shoes
Carrie : It’s really hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes — that’s why you sometimes need really special shoes!

When it comes to shoes, the feet know it best. Like how mine practically delved into this pair of running shoes, which had me jumping up and down in them gleefully when I tried them on. Happy feet.

And another incident quite some time ago, where I passed by a Birkenstocks store and dropped in to slip one of the sandals on. My feet practically sighed for joy. The sis eventually ordered 2 pairs online, but sadly mine was a size too big, and not too comfy either. I guess that only comes after you’ve worn them long enough?

I acknowledge that I haven’t been too kind to my feet. There are the many pairs of cheap pretty shoes that give abrasions and/or blisters which I sometimes wear. A few pairs of expensive pretty shoes, which look gorgeous, but again, seldom worn.

And my once-pretty but trusty slippers that practically go everywhere with me, which my french teacher calls the thong de luxe or, luxurious slipper cos of the colourful stones on them. I was rather amused by that.

So what’s it with women and shoes? Enough is never enough, and we fall in love with different pair after different pair, to match non-existent outifts we may have. While comfort is usually a priority, every now and then I get seduced by something totally impractical. Just ask ms dusty green espadrilles lying under my keyboard. Those were bought about 2 years back, and nope, haven’t worn them.

Shoes are so important to women, cos it is our feet that carry us through life’s journeys. Be it that sparkly pair of heels for prom, those serious black pumps for the office, or the quirky ones for casual hang-outs with friends, or the tatty ones worn everywhere. No outfit is really complete unless one has the right shoes to match, which is why women can never have enough shoes!

Is being busy the new free?

Aye pardon the lack of grammatical sense, but I’m back to kick ass!!! The past post-exam weeks have been a whir of absolutely lovely, horrible, boring, infruriating momments rolled up into a sushi. (Did I just say sushi?) Maybe cos I’m craving for some. The rain spoilt most of the plans though, but there were a few major highlights: a pretty damsel-ish cream and pastel blue butterfly sleeves top from far east, board gaming at minds cafe, lamb chop @ botak jones (which was so lip-smackingly delicious I’ve now declared myself a huge fan) and the mad rush of shopping to prep the bf for his euro backpacking trip.

Just sent him off at the airport today, I’m so gonna miss the boy loads!!! I’m partly envious (I wish I cld be packed into his backpack) and partly happy for him too cos I believe that everyone deserves to go on an adventure of their lifetime some time some day. Mine will come soon too, I’m sure of that. =)

Anyway, to make it snappy, I’ve discovered, to my utmost horror, ALL my friends are working this winter break. Even though it is at most a puny 4 wks long. WHY? Well this is not counting those who’re off overseas on their holidays, which makes me ponder, and fret a little about how should I maximize my days such that time will not wisp through my fingers! I want to meet up with everyone I havent seen in ages, exercise loads and get back into shape, but its not fun doing such stuff on your own!

2 weeks till the family trip to yunnan. 2 weeks to recharge, rejuvenate, catch up with the loved ones and rethink about my place in life.
