Alcoholism et I

While packing my bags, I discovered alcohol in 3 of my bags - the duffel carry onto plane bag, the gym bag and a handbag. Little bottle of Vodka in 2, and a tiny Alcohol holder (the silver kind) in another.

Then I was like thinking, wooah I'm like how steady man. Everywhere I go also bring them along.

Siao one.

The sea is dangerous and its storms terrible, but these obstacles have never been sufficient reason to remain ashore ... unlike the mediocre, intrepid spirits seek victory over those things that seem impossible ... it is with an iron will that they embark on the most daring of all endeavors ... to meet the shadowy future without fear and conquer the unknown.

Please let me inspire some.

You know hor, London is very cold leh

London hasn't been this cold for AGES. It's -3 now. Unbelievable.

Not that I can tell or feel it really. I've been in my PJs the whole day. Never go out at all. No incentive to brave the elements lah. I'm falling right back into the lam nuah mode.

Then now jetlagged leh, cannot sleep, what to do.

I almost forgot I'm only leaving on Thursday. Told the whole world to say goodbye to me on Tues. So dumb dumb right?

(Isn't my writing very Singaporean now? Happy? I can write like Singaporean hor)

I'm back. I've conquered 3 of the London airports already, just need 1 more and I have all the stamps on my passport. Machiam like hobby lidat.

Anyways, I think I have just encountered the thing that people will talk about happening 'in dreams' - meeting a footballer on the plane to London.

So I was sleeping like a pig, then woke up and was walking to the toilet (heng my hair not in a mess) then I see this group of 4 boys talking and being annoying. But I didn't really bother about them cos all I wanted was to pee right. Then later when I walk back to my seat this boy keep walking up and down the aisle. Then he came and talk to me.

Well he's not Premiership team one lah, but isn't it so cool? I was grinning like a xiao charboh inside, but of course, doing the very act cool stunt outside.

And after 6 weeks of North American accent, the 'You Alright?' instead of 'How's it going?' is quite refreshing. I still think English accent rocks. He's how cute can.

But lidat loh, end of story liao. Good enough for me lah.

And you know what the funny thing is?

I am living on the 77th Street at the moment.

Funny right? It's the posh Upper East side that the SATC girls live in. Yipeee!

Anyways, Phantom of the Opera, here I come! For USD65 (Hurrah to half price tix) I am sitting in the center row F (6th from the front!)

Now now, Chandelier will fall above me. WOOHOO.

You should totally see the dress I'm going to wear there. I just wonder if I will die of cold anot. It's -2 tomorrow.

Someone asked me if I can live in New York. If I'm going to be intimidated.

I wanted to laugh out damn loud and say, wah piang, please lah, I was born in Singapore leh. It's how big a city can? Manhattan population is 1 million (Okay lah, NYC is HUGE, but Manhattan is small ma!). Intimidated? By what? The subway? Hello? Have you seen the London Underground? That one then call CONFUSING okay?

But instead, I politely commented on how extremely expensive it is to live in the city, that if my pay isn't twice of what I earn in London, I will die.

hello 2007

A lot of people like to write a whole new set of resolutions. I never ever did that before. I've never really reflected on the previous years and think back on what I did right or wrong.

Perhaps it's because nothing really significant have happened that were worthy of such reflection. Or perhaps I did do some reflection, only to have forgotten all about it.

But right now, at this moment, I am looking back at my previous year and realised - what a journey of trial and error. All the things I did, I wish I did, I wish I did not do -

And 2007 is going to be a year where I am given a second chance to make it better. I get to first explore some bits of the states, then go back to Singapore where my friends have been waiting for me. There is sort of less unknown now that I know my job is waiting for me in London for the summer where I can relive the whole experience and do it more right. More right seems to be a wrong thing to say, as it wasn't very wrong. At least I know some things I will try to avoid, some I'd do more.

And now, with my ready made friends who will be back with me working, and one more crazy pig coming along to London, encouraged by my experience, we are so going to paint the whole of Europe RED.

Happy 2007 everyone. Cheers.
