Left waiting outside your door.
I was sure.
You'd give me more."

And we're taking, taking, taking it off.

Aww, Sophie. That's so sweet of you, regarding the post on your Tumblr. I'm sure all those fallen eyelashes of mine were from you, weren't it? And you can be sure that your eyelashes fall because i miss you alot too.

Just as you made my day, i'm here to make your day with pictures of Roman Ivancic at his hottest.

I know you like your boys topless with a hint of kinkiness. I hope those set your panties on fire.

So creamy, creamy.

Here's something to get you guys through mundane monday. One solid dose of Alex Dunstan!

Ph: Kai Z Feng

Anyway, i think i should stop snacking on junk food and start stocking up tubes of yoghurt in preparation of looking good for December.

"Let it rolls of your tongue.
I'm gonna have me some fun.
Don't stand there looking all dumb.
Like you've been hit with a stun gun."

Peaches, I Feel Cream

Reason Why.

Fallen Eyelashes

The sun stepped in
before we fell too deep.
Because our love
is way too steep.
I'm pacing back and forth
unwilling to move to the north.

If silence is golden,
you've crowned yourself the King.
And my wound's still open,
unsure of what tunes to sing.
If its not accident,
what's the reason behind all this?

A reason.
Yes, one is enough.
As long as it comes out
from your mouth.
Then, preparation of reunion
is on the way.
And Faith that pounds in my chest,
can't help but wails,
"Come what may!"

Pause The Tragic Ending

I can't believe on what i saw on my screen when i woke up this noon. Top model Daul Kim who's known for her quirky personality was dead. Dead. Dead. Dead.

She committed suicide though the official cause is not disclosed yet. It's apparent from her blog posts that she was battling depression a few months ago.

I wonder if too much knowledge caused her demise (She's an avid reader of philosophical books). Is 20 years enough for her to experience everything there is to this life?

Daul Kim

Usually i don't give a hoot about others, but she's different. She's the same age as me. Lived in Singapore before during her teenage years. And i frequent her blog often. I can relate with her. It's just a pity that a young life like hers have to go so early.

Just like how we do not have the choice of the time, day or place we wanted to be born, i believe we can't choose the same for our death as well.

Bye Daul.

Like, "Here comes the sun"

I wonder if anyone is thinking of going for camping these days. Well, i certainly do after seeing this editorial from Hercules Magazine. Who knew that dressing up for a camp trip can be so fun?

Ph: Bella Howard

I still remember back in secondary school days where i'm used (or forced) to go for camping every year and there is this over enthusiastic teacher of mine was shouting and commanding us everywhere with his boring shirt with motivational slogan and ugly shorts.

And the worst part of all? I'm required to buy that shirt as well.

Get too close to the flame.

Where's the crumbs?

This is the kind of story that i'd love to be dreaming on a cold rainy night, rolling up into a ball under my blanket.

And with Lady Gaga as the witch? How uncanny right?

"One for you and one for me
Then they let us go to hunt us down again.
and still you refused to see.
Why everything has to stay ugly."

Look at it, i know it's true.

I've not been getting enough sleep lately due to school works but when i do, i hope my sleep would not be dreamless. Hopefully, i'll getting lots of lucid dreams where i can do whatever i want.

Ph: Greg Harris

The weirder it is the better so that when i woke up, i wouldn't have to crack my brain trying to remember what i've dreamt about.

use them as a seed.
Grow up a big tree
on the balcony."

Look what i've found! Joan Pedrola and Patrick Kafka in an editorial spread. Two obsessions in a single editorial. Just pure 'obsessionism'! I hope there will be great casting for magazine spread like this in time to come.

And, i've forgotten to add this into my October Obsession. New face, Frey Mudd. Doesn't he just look extraordinary? He could walked into a fine dining restaurant with only ripped t-shirt and jeans claiming he's the son of (insert a famous rocker's name here) and the host would still totally buy it.

Don't Take Me Back To The Start.

I have never been this hardworking in my whole life, not even for my 'O' level. Even when i told myself i wanted to go into one of the best Junior College in Singapore. So i guess my resolve is not that strong at that point of time.

But this is so different. Ever since i got into Lasalle, i felt like i'm in this mix of summer and military camp. I had such a great time with all of my classmates (Well, the 'all' part is a tad exaggerated) and then came all of this crazy, extremely packed deadlines that i barely manage to breath.

Sometimes, i just sat there staring at my lecturers when they gave (yet another) projects at us. I just zonked out. I just want to laugh and pissed my lecturers for pissing me as well.

However, i find myself kind of enjoying all these works. Partly because i never knew i could go this far and partly also because i love what i'm doing now albeit not all.

Stress? Yes i am. But i don't want to run away again. I'm tired of it. I don't want to repeat what i'm doing two years ago when all those anxieties mounted up to my head. At least i want to run with purpose in mind, not like some headless chickens getting nowhere at it.

I'm not calling those who run away are weak. I think everyone just needs to get their priorities right.

And, i'm slowly picking myself up from all those 'bruises' few months ago. Still building that shell bits by bits, though it may not as strong as before, i just don't want to be a crab without a shell.
