dont miss you at all [20 Jul 2010|11:36pm]
sometimes you dont understand why things happen the way they do and feelings of sorrow and regret seem to reside only because you choose to remain in the happier times of yesteryears. so its times like these that you grab hold of yourself and remember that the only way to keep living is to move on. because life goes on. whether you will to or not. and whatever happened is the only thing that could have; but when its over, its over.



and then this quote comes to mind on a moonless starless night as such.
"i keep thinking about this river somewhere, with the water moving really fast. and these two people in the water, trying to hold on to each other, holding on as hard as they can, but in the end it’s just too much. they’ve got to let go, drift apart. that’s how it is with us. it’s a shame, kath, because we’ve loved each other all our lives. but in the end, we can’t stay together forever." - kazuo ishiguro, never let me go.

i see the moon playing his tune [01 Feb 2010|12:49am]
2009 was wonderful to say the least with so many pleasant surprises at every unexpected turn. extremely blessed and favoured, to say the least. yet crossing over to 2010 has been such a conundrum with tough decisions to be made and consequences that only time, in the long run, will tell. good or bad; i'm just going to have faith that The One above has got me covered either way.

new york in 5 days. with no plan except a ticket in my hand. kinda scarily exciting.

i think, i need some of will's lullaby too. and i really do hope that everything'll be alright.

there's something about the Grey's [29 Sep 2009|12:35am]
and so, season six of grey's is here. my source of relief from a hard day's work and subconscious rewiring of life perspectives from the characters point of view shall continue to endure, i guess. most of all, i'm amazed at how it never cease to be thus quotable.

comic strips by pon and zi


stumbled upon this clip sometime ago and i thought it was really cute. would have placed the original music clip with joshua radin harmonising with priscilla ahn instead except that i'm in the mood for something cute tonight. and one of the highlight this week was catching a long awaited movie.

CRYSTAL MESH from autokolor on Vimeo.



iluma is one of the two main projects i've been assigned to work on the past three months in my internship. really happy for my architects when i saw this video. love the way the static, frozen 'crystals' suddenly transform into a dynamic form of art within seconds, heralding a fundamental change of architecture. i've also come to appreciate its striking visual appearance as refreshing despite the numerous bipolar reviews.. as well as a renewed admiration for the architects behind the design, having learnt about their design intention, concepts and developments till today.

this happened much too soon [13 Jul 2009|12:06am]


one of the best cover of Billie Jean, ever. by the one and only Jazon Mraz and Dutch Idol, Nikki Kerkhoff. and it was cool that my office held a party last friday themed Michael Jackson, with a screening of his concert no less!

somebody's broken heart, and a washed-out dream [03 Jul 2009|01:42pm]


its been a week but in my own world, i'm still in disbelief that MJ has passed on. his songs and lyrics were really a huge influence during my growing up years. especially man in the mirror. crazy antics aside, i think this man was revolutionary.

that i may dwell in Your house forevermore [14 May 2009|01:16pm]


we saw beautiful sunrises and sunsets everyday in sydney and melbourne. and they just left us speechless, in awe of its beauty every single time. it puts you in a very reflective mood too. looking back at my life thus far, counting all the blessings received in good times and bad, i guess what else can i say of the Lord except that He has made me glad (: thank You for everything!

as i'm reaching for You [14 May 2009|12:48pm]


I stand here before You
In wide opened wonder
Amazed at the glory of You
The power of heaven
Revealing Your purpose in me
As I'm reaching for You

there are no seasons, only climate here... [22 Apr 2009|02:14am]


possibly one of the best local chinese production this era. stellar cast - i was particularly amazed by the versatility and convincing acting of joanna dong and george chan, great music and touching lyrics by liang wern fook. really liked how they incorporated dashes of quotes from Cummings into the musical too; hearing the actors switch between fluent mandarin and english provided pleasant twists to the narrative. the themes brought up also reminded me strongly of this quote by Vincent Van Gogh: "What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?" and so, can Love and Dreams really co-exist? nonetheless, it definitely more than made up for missing coldplay, rachel yamagata, psapp, mocca, vertical horizon and the importance of being earnest this season. thank you for watching with me yennie! (:

hear those trumpets blow again [08 Apr 2009|12:23am]


dear design,

i gave up watching jack and algernon for you today. hope you will be worth it. we'll know in 6 days. meanwhile we could learn a little from the locomotion: "lets do it nice and easy now don't lose control with a little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul"
