I first heard the Rascal Flatts when Danny Gokey sang What Hurts The Most on American Idol. I fell in love with the song, Youtubed it and came across another song of theirs.
I was nice enough to put the video of the song here so that all you have to do is click the little play sign, wait for it to load and listen to the song.
It's called Here Comes Goodbye.
Before you listen to it though, I'm going to warn you that it is a REALLY sad song. You've gotta really listen to the lyrics and watch the video. The first time I heard the song, I teared a little bit. When I watched the video, tears rolled down my cheeks even though I tried my hardest not to be a sissy girl. Lol.
But even without all the emo-ness, it's still a good song, so listen to it anyway! :p
For those of you who didn't get it, this song is sang by the dead father of the girl in the video. He's kinda watching this whole scene from heaven and he's telling the story from her point of view. I think lah. I'm actually just guessing but it makes sense right?
I can listen to this song non-stop. I really like this song! Although, I have to really detach myself from the song coz otherwise, I get really sad. Lol.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! :)
Btw, is it disturbing that I ENJOY listening to a song like this? : /
I'm not psycho, I promise. Lol. I realize how I'm contradicting myself. Song makes me sad. I like song. I like to be sad. Lol. But I dunno. I can't explain it. I just like the song, EVEN THOUGH it makes me sad! YEAH! THAT'S IT! :D

The weather in Malaysia has been so ridiculously hot, I don't wanna do anything except stay in my house with all the air-cons on at full blast. Even walking the 50m from the Admin office in my school to my car is torture!
Funny thing is that the only thing that is keeping me sane (the air-con) is also contributing towards global warming which is making the earth even hotter. Lol.
Anyway, here are some random pictures that I've grabbed from FB coz I don't like it when my blog has no pictures!
With Sharon and Syat at the BOH Cameronian Arts Awards, Heinken sponsored, after party. I didn't stay for long though coz mummy was with me.
Picture is a little dark coz it was taken with Syat's Blackberry.
With everyone who performed at East Coast Mall, Kuantan.
With Ian, the guy from The Star who organizes all these events, the emcee and someone from The Star, Kuantan.
East Coast Mall, Kuantan.
Shoulder stand on Chiaki.
Cheng Choo, Marcus and I basing for Priscilla's basket toss at an all-boys school in Penang.
On a completely unrelated topic, Bryan's been in Japan for 10 days now. It's the longest that I've been away from him and I miss him! It's weird being alone at home and not having anyone to go to the gym/for lunch with. I remember when I used to wish that I was an only child coz Bryan would piss me off like CRAZY sometimes (it's not so bad now coz we've both grown up. Lol!) But really, I would HATE being an only child! I'd be so bored! Lol. He comes back home on Monday night so another 6 days!
And btw, it really drives me crazy having to talk to him online. -_- He is super unresponsive. You ask him two questions, he answers one question and his answers are always monosyllabic. Extracting information from him is like removing a tooth from an angry crocodile. DAMN FRUSTRATING SOMETIMES! Some more he is super slow at typing!
On ANOTHER random note, lol, I slept in Bryan's room yesterday coz he got a new bed and the bed is seriously SUPER SUPER comfortable! It's like sleeping on a cloud, no joke. I'm willing to let Bryan stay in Japan for another 2 weeks just so I can sleep on his bed. Lol!
Kay, anyway! Time to go for gym! Bye ya'llz! :D

Hello world! Been awhile since I last blogged. Heh. Sorry? So much has been happening! Last week was a bit of a blur for me coz so many things were happening at once. I'm actually sitting here, trying to remember what I did all of last week.
As you all already know, last Monday, Marcus Lim, Chee Wei, Cheng Choo, Priscilla and I went to Penang to visit some high schools to talk to them about cheer (what cheerleading is all about, how to start a team etc etc) and give them a small stunt/cheer demonstration. We visited 8 schools and talked/did the same thing at ALL these schools! By the 5th school, I was already feeling really tired and it was getting a TAD boring. :p It was also a bit difficult for me because we visited some chinese schools and I was the only one who didn't speak Mandarin. So everyone had to keep translating for me. Lol. Overall, I think it was a very productive day and I'm glad we got the chance to go and speak to all these schools. Many of them expressed an interest in starting a cheerleading team! So excited! Cheerleading is really growing in Malaysia!
After we finished going to all 8 schools, they took us for some AMAZING Penang food to make up for the shitty lunch that we had. Chee Cheong Fun, Asam Laksa, Curry Laksa, YUMMMM! :D
On Tuesday, as tired as I was, I dragged my ass out of bed and went for class. But maybe I shouldn't have because when I came home, my maid had run away and stolen my laptop and money. *sigh* The money isn't too big a deal but I was absolutely DEVASTATED about my laptop! All my pictures, videos and work was in there and NO, I DID NOT HAVE A BACK UP!
So that should excuse me from not blogging for a week because I have no laptop. I'm currently on the desktop which I absolutely hate to use. I should be getting my new laptop by next week though, so fingers crossed! Getting another VAIO btw.
My maid running away is actually a very long, very complicated story which I really can't be bothered to go into here. Maybe I'll save the story for another day. At the moment, I'm not completely over her running away and stealing my laptop yet. Lol.
On Wednesday, I just stayed home and read and watched DVDs coz I was so upset! Ling and Sam were real sweethearts and came over to surprise me to check up on me and cheer me up. :) Thank you my babies, I love you both! Was supposed to go out with them but I had to wait for my mum to come home and then we had to go for dinner coz it was my grandpa's birthday. Mmmmm. Japanese!
Went for class on Thursday and then met up with Zam, Ling, Sam and Gan afterwards for lunch at The Curve. I haven't seen Gan since Ling's birthday so it was good to catch up over lunch! He's still as funny as ever and whenever we all get together, it's like we never left high school! After lunch, Sam and I, shopaholics that we are, lined up for 45 minutes to get into the Zara/Massimo Dutti/Pull and Bear warehouse sale. The both of us managed to snag some real bargains. Zara turtleneck for 20 bucks! Whoooo! Had to rush home because I had to be in OU by 5.30pm to practice for the MODA show. Was a bit late. Heh. :p Sorry Kheen Ho! But it didn't matter in the end coz the MODA show started SUPER LATE anyway! We were SUPPOSED to start at 7pm, we ended up performing at 9pm. Malaysian timing sucks! I am never doing another MODA show ever again! On top of starting late, they also MAJOR MESSED UP our music! So annoyed! Mummy and daddy came to watch the performance though! :) Makes me happy when they're there. :)
Video of the performance below!
Friday was another early day because we were driving up to Frasers Hill in the M3. It was the most lovely drive ever! Although really, I think convertibles are SO overrated! They mess up your hair! And the sound of the wind blowing in your ears is terrible! We stopped at Bentong for some fabulous beef ball noodles before going up Frasers Hill. Driving up Frasers Hill was a real thrill because the M3 is really powerful and daddy was driving really fast. I absolutely loved it! Had lunch at the Smokehouse something. I can't remember the name of the place but it was so English! I loved it! And the Irish chicken I had for lunch was super yums too! Drove back down after lunch and had a quiet dinner at home.
Went shopping with mummy on Saturday for some mother daughter quality time. :) We haven't done that in quite awhile because I've been busy every weekend so I'm glad I had this weekend free.
Yesterday, gymnastics in the afternoon and then the BOH Cameronian Arts Awards at night. For those of you who didn't know, the T4YP group were nominated for Best Group Performance. We didn't win though. But who cares?!? Being nominated was honour enough! 5 nominees out of 38 plays! I'd say that was a achievement in itself. :) I thought the BCAA was very well organized and I'm so glad I managed to go! Pictures when I grab them from FB. :p Had tons of fun and it was good to catch up with all the T4YP-ers! Congratulations to all the winners! I think that Air Con should have won more awards! :p
Anyway! I'm off. Got some errands to run!
Btw, got my credit card last week! :D :D
And also, I bough diamantes at The Curve last week and I bling-ed my Nintendo DS Lite! :D I'll post pictures soon!
