你好吗

墙上静止的钟是为谁停留
是不是和我一样赖著不走
你说故事已经结束 很久
我忘了 向前走

我努力假装现在过得很好
现在的你看来已不需要我
也许在不同的时空
还牵着 你的手

想知道你真的过得好吗
没有我也许是种解脱
将思念穿梭在宇宙数千光年
悄悄到 你身边

现在我试着习惯一个人过
也许你已经开始新的生活
陪着我的叫做寂寞
陪你的 是谁呢?

想知道你真的过得好吗
没有我也许是种解脱
将思念穿梭在宇宙数千光年
悄悄到 你身边

现在我试着习惯一个人过
也许你已经开始新的生活
陪着我的叫做寂寞
陪你的 是谁呢?

也许在不同的时空
还牵着 你的手

Updates.. and then some

Japan Trip

Went to JTB last Thursday to book for the Tokyo accommodation, so that we can ask them to help us buy the Ghibli Museum tickets.  But you know what?  They are marking up the accommodation prices by almost 50%.  Like, erm, really?  A room for 3 nights – I can get from Japanican.com at SGD800+, but they are charging me SGD1,400+.  Like, wow.  Literally wow.  We decided to not go for it, and give up on the hope of going to Ghibli Museum (this time, we’ll get there eventually!).  So I’ve booked the hotel on Japanican.com and now, waiting for certain dates to tie up the loose ends.

Things left to do:

  • Remind Kyoto hotel to assist with application of visit permit to Kokedera
  • Confirming Shirakawa-go accommodation with the ryokan on 1st October
  • Book Nomi Bus for the Shirakawa-Go trip
  • Change enough YEN for the trip
  • Double confirming the train timings so that we can purchase all the train tickets in advance at Narita Airport

Hope everything will go smoothly as planned. *crosses fingers*

Gaming

After the conclusion of The International 6, Dota 2 community is kinda in a lull right now.  Teams have been disbanded and rosters are in a disarray now.  There’s so many rumours going on that I’m kinda immune to all.  Now we are just waiting for official team line up announcements.

In the meantime, I’m just playing World of Warcraft’s latest expansion: Legion. I’m levelling as a Discipline priest, which is surprisingly doable.  Yeah, granted I can’t heal much, it’s about just enough for solo play.  Most of the time I hardly need to heal myself.  At scenarios against level ?? bosses, the NPCs will help to heal me.  Whenever my HP goes to half, I’ll get healed and I just need to spend my mana on offensive spells.  And being a disc priest, there’s literally only 3 buttons to press for offensive spells: Smite, Purge the Wicked, and Penance.  That’s all, really.  It should be boring, but it isn’t really.  I played WoW for the whole day yesterday, and I didn’t really get any fatigue. I find it refreshing that now, quest rewards can randomly be upgraded.  A green reward item can randomly become a blue, or a blue item could get randomly upgraded to legendary when it dropped into your bag.

Gathering professions in WoW have also been improved.  Nodes are shared (you don’t need to rush to get that herb and worry that it’ll be gone after someone got to it before you), and you can get random profession-related item on top of whatever you are gathering.  Take fishing, for example, I can get random fish which I could throw back to the water to get permanent 5 levels to my fishing skill.  Or I could get baits that could help me fish up even more unique fishes.  I’ve always quite like fishing, so I foresee I’ll be fishing pretty often in Legion.  Heh.

Misc

Jewel Coffee opened up a branch at Millenia Walk!  Yay!  Walking distance from my office to a good cuppa.  Starbucks is actually rubbish, now that more and more decent coffee connoisseur chains popped up. I think I might just stop drinking Starbucks once I’ve redeemed all the free drinks.

I’m going for Frozen Planet in concert this Thursday! I’ve been waiting for it for two years. I’ve managed to procure 2 tickets and I’m gonna drag Bruno to go with me lol.  I think he’ll be napping halfway through though… :x

I’ve pledged for 2 Bobby backpacks via Kickstarter, and have received them!  I think I -might- bring it for the Japan trip – but we’ll see how it goes.

Sigh, now with the haze and dengue issue, we now have to worry about Zika.  And my block is just right outside the Zika cluster border at Bedok North Ave 3.  Insect repellents have sold out everywhere, but I’ve managed to order some online via Giant website, so hopefully I’ll be getting some OFF! insect repellent lotion later.  I’ve also bought an essential oil burner for my mom as she wants one in the living room, and the seller has offered it together with a free essential oil, so I chose Lemongrass (naturally) to repel the insects.  Not sure when I’ll be getting that… hopefully soon!

I’ve been repeating this song on youtube/iTunes for quite a bit.  The lyrics are so sad… it tugs my heart strings everytime he sang “你退半步的动作认真的吗? 小小的动作伤害还那么大”. T_T

绅士
作词:薛之谦
作曲:薛之谦
编曲:郑伟、张宝宇

好久没见了什么角色呢
细心装扮着
白色衬衫的袖扣是你送的
尽量表现着像不在意的
频繁暴露了自欺欺人者
越掩饰越深刻
你说我说听说
忍着言不由衷的段落
我反正决定自己难过
我想摸你的头发
只是简单的试探啊
我想给你个拥抱
像以前一样可以吗
你退半步的动作认真的吗
小小的动作伤害还那么大
我只能扮演个绅士
才能和你说说话
我能送你回家吗
可能外面要下雨啦
我能给你个拥抱
像朋友一样可以吗
我忍不住从背后抱了一下
尺度掌握在不能说想你啊
你就当刚认识的绅士
闹了个笑话吧
尽量表现着善解人意的
频繁暴露了不欲人知的
越掩饰越深刻
想说听说别说
忍着言不由衷的段落
我反正注定留在角落
我想摸你的头发
只是简单的试探啊
我想给你个拥抱
像以前一样可以吗
你退半步的动作认真的吗
小小的动作伤害还那么大
我只能扮演个绅士
才能和你说说话
我能送你回家吗
可能外面要下雨啦
我能给你个拥抱
像朋友一样可以吗
我忍不住从背后抱了一下
尺度掌握在不能说想你啊
你就当刚认识的绅士
闹了个笑话吧
你能给我只左手
牵你到马路那头吗
我会像以前一样
看着来往的车子啊
我们的距离在眉间皱了下
迅速还原成路人的样子啊
越有礼貌我越害怕
绅士要放得下

我不愿 让你一个人

五月天

我不愿 让你一个人
作词:阿信
作曲:阿信+冠佑
编曲:五月天+周恒毅

你说呢 明知你不在 还是会问
空气 却不能代替你 出声
习惯 像永不愈合 的固执伤痕
一思念就撕裂灵魂

把相片 让你能保存 多洗一本
毛衣 也为你准备多 一层
但是 你孤单时刻 安慰的体温
怎么为你多留一份

我不愿让你一个人 一个人在人海浮沉
我不愿你独自走过 风雨的 时分
我不愿让你一个人 承受这世界的残忍
我不愿眼泪陪你到 永恒

你走后 爱情的遗迹 像是空城
遗落你杯子手套和 笑声
最后 你只带走你 脆弱和单纯
和我最放不下的人
也许未来 你会找到 懂你疼你 更好的人
下段旅程 你一定要 更幸福丰盛

我不愿让你一个人 一个人在人海浮沉
我不愿你独自走过 风雨的 时分
我不愿让你一个人 承受这世界的残忍
我不愿眼泪陪你到 永恒

你说呢 明知你不在 还是会问
只因 习惯你满足的 眼神
只是 我最后一个 奢求的可能
只求你有快乐人生

只求命运 带你去一段 全新的旅程
往幸福的天涯飞奔
别回头就往前飞奔
请忘了我还 一个人

VG.R Mikasa Tribute

 

So. Much. Feels. BibleThump.

Age is but a number.  I certainly hope these awesome players (Mikasa, Fear, etc) will continue playing on.

PS:  The background music was so haunting till I went through the YouTube comments to find out what song it is and who sang it.  And… I’ve been repeating it on YouTube since then.  <3

Oh yeah, and congrats on VG.R for winning the Starladder Invitationals!  Thanks for making my wish come true, Fy and Mikasa!  <3

Quick update

Yes I’m still alive!

Just a quick update:-

  1. I jerked too much on my W4 cable, and the right connection broke off internally I think.  No choice but to buy a new pair of IEMs – and I went for W30.  It’s odd but even though it’s a downgrade in specs (W4 has four way drivers while W30 only has three way drivers), it actually sounds better than my W4.  Weird.
  2. I finally signed up for Friends of the Garden membership – that will allow me unlimited entries to Flower Dome and Cloud Forest at Gardens by the Bay!  And immediately upon collecting my member card, I went to the Tulipmania exhibition!  Very nice exhibition this year, way better than last year’s! Got a couple of photos posted up on Facebook, but I’ll post more here when I have the time.
  3. Na’Vi is back!  China doto is back! Too bad I can’t catch tonight’s SLI GF as it’ll be way too late when it starts and I have to work tomorrow.  But I’m still hoping for a Chinese team to win it.  Asian pride, kappa!  :3
  4. Caught a couple of movies this year already – didn’t really have the chance to list them all down.  Caught The Jungle Book yesterday (not too shabby, but the child actor was pretty bad – not much facial expressions at all actually). Maybe I’ll do it in my next post or something… but gotta go soon, meeting up with Bruno to catch Huntsman: Winter’s War.

But yeah that’s about it!

PS: Hate the horrible hot weather lately omg. I’m perspiring as I type this… even though there’s a fan right behind me.  -_-

 

我想我不会爱你 (I Think I Won’t Love You)

I’m bored on a Sunday afternoon.  And this song’s chorus has been churning in my head since this morning, and I have no idea why. Hence I decided to just turn to Youtube and listen / learn this song.  After 30minutes, this is the result, lol.  Pretty bad I must say, coz I sounded just so damn pitchy.  But this song is pretty out of the norm too, with so many flats/sharps in the composition. Guess I should grade myself like B- for the effort!

 

你的呼吸 穿过身体 (Your breathing passed through me)
我来不及反应 (I can’t react in time)
你的声音 躲在耳里 让我生病 (Your voice hid in my ears, made me fell sick)
谢谢 你给的让我沉迷 (Thank you for mesmerizing me)
让我丢掉了姓名 (Made me threw away my name)
在好奇的时候 拉不住眼睛 (And can’t close my eyes when I’m curious)

我想我不会爱你 这样下去 (I think I won’t love you, if this goes on)
渺小的自尊都快要抛弃 (I’m almost throwing away what’s left of my self-respect)
我想我不会爱你 只是也许 (I think I won’t love you.  Just maybe.)

你的叹息 散落一地 (Your sigh, is all over the ground)
让我歇斯底里 (Making me go into hysterics)
靠得太近 一不小心 弄伤自己 (Went a little closer, and I hurt myself when I’m just a little careless)
谢谢 你给的让我沉迷 (Thank you for mesmerizing me)
让我困住了自己 (Made me trapped myself)
在迷路的时候 舍不得离去 (Can’t bear to leave after when I’m lost)

我想我不会爱你 这样下去 (I think I won’t love you, if this goes on)
渺小的自尊都快要抛弃 (I’m almost throwing away what’s left of my self-respect)
我想我不会恨你 伤的痕迹 (I think I won’t hate you, even when there’s scars)
住在我心底 变成了秘密 (Living inside my heart, becoming a secret)
我想我不会爱你 害怕失去 (I think I won’t love you, I’m afraid of losing you)
所以逞强的 远远看着你 (So I’m pretending to be strong, looking at you from afar)
我想我不会恨你 只是也许 (I think I won’t hate you.  Just maybe.)

退后
作词:宋健彰
作曲:周杰伦

天空灰得像哭过
离开你以后 并没有 更自由
酸酸的空气 嗅出我们的距离
一幕锥心的结局 像呼吸般无法停息

抽屉泛黄的日记 榨干了回忆
那笑容 是夏季 妳我的过去被顺时针的忘记
缺氧过后的爱情 粗心的眼泪是多余

我知道妳我都没有错 只是忘了怎么退后
信誓旦旦给了承诺 却被时间扑了空

我知道我们都没有错 只是放手会比较好过
最美的爱情 回忆里待续

天空灰得像哭过
离开你以后 并没有 更自由
酸酸的空气 嗅出我们的距离
一幕锥心的结局 像呼吸般无法停息

抽屉泛黄的日记 榨干了回忆
那笑容 是夏季 妳我的过去被顺时针的忘记
缺氧过后的爱情 粗心的眼泪是多余

我知道妳我都没有错 只是忘了怎么退后
信誓旦旦给了承诺 却被时间扑了空

我知道我们都没有错 只是放手会比较好过
最美的爱情 回忆里待续

我知道妳我都没有错 只是忘了怎么退后
信誓旦旦给了承诺 却被时间扑了空

我知道我们都没有错 只是放手会比较好过
最美的爱情 回忆里待续

突然好想你

最怕空气突然安静 最怕朋友突然的关心
最怕回忆 突然翻滚绞痛著不平息 最怕突然 听到你的消息
想念如果会有声音 不愿那是悲伤的哭泣
事到如今 终于让自己属于我自己 只剩眼泪 还骗不过自己

突然好想你 你会在哪里 过得快乐或委屈
突然好想你 突然锋利的回忆 突然模糊的眼睛

我们像一首最美丽的歌曲 变成两部悲伤的电影
为什么你 带我走过最难忘的旅行 然后留下 最痛的纪念品

我们 那么甜那么美那么相信 那么疯那么热烈的曾经
为何我们还是要奔向各自的幸福和遗憾中老去

突然好想你 你会在哪里 过得快乐或委屈
突然好想你 突然锋利的回忆 突然模糊的眼睛

最怕空气突然安静 最怕朋友突然的关心
最怕回忆 突然翻滚绞痛著不平息 最怕突然 听到你的消息

最怕此生 已经决心自己过没有你 却又突然 听到你的消息

一向来都不是五月天迷,但无可否认的,阿信写的歌的确能触碰到人心。

就好比这首《忽然好想你》。看着歌词,听着歌,忽然心好酸,忽然好想哭。

Sometimes I really hate being too empathetic.

你呢?你会突然想到谁呢?
