Just a little more hope to last that much longer...
Song of the moment: McFly - I've Got You
'cause i've got you to make me feel stronger
when the days are rough and an hour feels much longer
yeah when i got you
oh to make me feel better
when the nights are long they'll be easier together
I've Got You by McFly
Came back from Seletar just a couple of hours ago. Last night's duty was more or less as per usual. Zhaoyang, Poh, Beh, Ruan, BK and myself being the duty personnel. Around 8pm, BK and myself went to the Tech Mess to chill and get some sleep as we were on the 3 and 5 prowl timings. Not unexpectedly, we were woken up around 12MN by the sounds of Ruan playing Winning Eleven on the XBOX. At least I got some decent sleep before prowling...
Sandar 'dragged' MK, Zhiliang and myself along to go last minute shopping for Gabrielle's present (well, I was probably the most willing of all the above mentioned parties but that's beside the point). We settled for a nice pink/brown Puma handbag from Royal Sporting House (I think...). Rushed back to Church to present the gift and sing a quick B-Day song before the Music team's Jamming Session.
As some of you might know, I recently acquired a Nintendo DS lite for $309 with casing and 1 original game (There goes this month's pay...T_T), together with Zhixue and Han Ping. Thus, from now on, there is a DS 'gang' which consists of The above mentioned people and Ying Xiang who introduced us to the joys of DS. Should anyone of you be posted to Seletar Camp and have a DS, you are more than welcome to join the DS gang! LOL!
Just when it seems that there is no hope, a glimmer of it comes along. How long can I survive like that, not knowing the story's end?

Beginning of something new...
Song of the moment: Zac Efron and Venessa Anne Hudgens - Breaking Free (High School Musical OST)
But your faith it gives me strength
Strength to believe
We’re breakin’ free
There’s not a star in heaven
That we can’t reach
If we’re trying
Yeah, we’re breaking free
Oh, we’re breakin’ free
Breaking Free by Zac Efron and Venessa Anne Hudgens
New Year...new hopes, new fears, new wishes, new dreams and new beginnings. Let's hope that this New Year will not only be better than the last but also hold new learning experiences for us all.
Spent New Year's Eve on duty in camp. I am not realy one who actually bothers with the countdown etc and the fact that I was on prowling duty on 3 and 5am led me and Ying Xiang to go to sleep early...only to be woken up at 12 midnight by BK, Ho et al. Not that it was unexpected but being woken up again 15 minutes later by Ho irritated me a little.
Went to watch Death Note 2: The Last Name with BK and Desmond. According to Desmond, he's really leading a tough life in APC with the seniors playing the 'old bird, new bird' game very seriously. A contrast to the life me and BK are leading back in Seletar camp... ^_^ Anyways, the movie was pretty good and did a good job closing up all the loose ends in the movie storyline. What bugged me however, was the technical difficulties they had when the movie started playing. No movie trailers were shown (boo!) which at first lead me to believe we were in the wrong theatre. Then when the movie finally started, it skipped passed the first few minutes and had no sound at all. When they stopped and restarted the movie again, we watched a minute or so worth of the movie in 'half-screen' (as in they only showed the bottom half of the scene...boo!!). Although GV compensated by giving all the patrons in that theatre a complimentary movie pass, it cost me to miss the last bus home and I had to take a taxi back, which negated the price of the complimentary movie pass. (Bleah!)
2007, a time for new starts and new beginnings...hopefully...
