Four Hundred & Ninety Eight. -updates about my recent weeks

October 11, 2012 / , , ,

Just heard one of my all-time favourite songs 
as I walked past Shop & Save after my night run.
So why does my blog says "Stones taught me to fly"?
It came from this song, Cannonball by Damien Rice :)

There's still a little bit of your taste in my mouth
Still a little bit of you laced with my doubt
It's still a little harder to say what's going on

There's still a little bit of your ghost, your witness
Still a little bit of your face I haven't kissed
You step a little closer each day
That I can?t say what's going on

Stones taught me to fly
Love, it taught me to lie
Life, it taught me to die
So it's not hard to fall
When you float like a cannonball

There's still a little bit of your song in my ear
There's still a little bit of your words I long to hear
You step a little closer to me
So close that I can't see what's going on

And stones taught me to fly
Love, it taught me to lie
Life, taught me to die
So it's not hard to fall
When you float like a cannon

Stones taught me to fly
Love, it taught me to cry
So come on courage
Teach me to be shy
'Cause it's not hard to fall

And I don't wanna scare her
It's not hard to fall
And I don't wanna lose
It's not hard to grow
When you know that you're just don't know

This song has accompanied me through a few different stages of my life.
& at each stage, I had a different feel to the song.
This time, when I heard it,
It felt.. Really nostalgic.
This is prolly my first time mentioning it here,
but yup, I've been single for quite some time.
Not gna explain why & how it happened.
No worries, I've been good for the past few months!
But yea, this song did make me feel kinda emotional for awhile.

But anyways, that aside,
here are some additional photos from William from the Red Bull Stratos event at iFLY :)

yes, suit up!!!!!

I did 666 jumps before I finally had this shot.
Okay not so exaggerating. 6 jumps at least though.

Okay next, I'm gna blog really randomly.
Trying to put what happened in the recent weeks into one post,
so I'm gna do the lazy way of blogging:
Photos from Instagram :D
(not really in chronological order)

Just met my special friend, Melissa, for lunch this afternoon.
We laughed so badly over our nonsensical & embarrassing moments,
at a location where most people are either serious-looking or stressed from work.
Two siaocharbors, you can say.
I cherish how we update each other with our lives,
 how we can pour out our real emotions/thoughts,
& how we have our telepathic moments.
We may not be best friends,
but we certainly share a special connection.
That's why, we address each other as special friend. 
Love her so! :)

I also met up with my good khaki, J on saturday.

She mentioned something on her instagram today,
which really made me smile to myself.. :')

xiaomei, you have not been forgotten! :) :)

A date with Ade :)

Had my first try at this black squid ink pasta.
The one I had was from Empire State.
The taste was acceptable (no weird taste, no worries)
but we felt that it was too dry (prolly just oily).
Any good place to recommend to try some awesome squid ink pasta??

Did a shoot for Norwegian Seafood at a revolving restaurant,
Tóng Lè Private Dining at OUE Tower.
I knew there's one in Singapore,
but never had a chance to visit it (too atas yo).
But this time, I was lucky to be there for the shoot. :)

Best part of the shoot?
THIS!! whole plate to myself.
way too awesome!!!!!!!

Shoot for ChrisKyla
Check out the video here

Support them on Facebook to find out what is ChrisKyla about :)
It's NOT a blogshop.

Met up with my dearie, & her bestie (finally!!)

Brought them to try Ah Loy Thai Food 
Shaw Towers
100 Beach Road  
Singapore 189702
Tom Yum Soup, Fried Butter Calamari, Mango Chicken.
The food are still pretty awesome to me,
but slightly overpriced for some of the items,
like the noodles/phad thai/fried rice. $7 or $8 I think.

Mid-autumn festival celebration,
back to childhood days! :)

I love this shot a lot
'Cause baby you're a firework. 
Come on, show 'em what you're worth. 
Make 'em go, oh~ As you shoot across the sky~~

Ahmei's 21st bday celebration.
With my favourite girls aka the Exclusives & bday girl's dad :) :)
These girls, I treasure.

“Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. 
It's not something you learn in school. 
But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, 
you really haven't learned anything.”

Back to shoots, after quite some time

Ohyes, I finally went on a shopping trip recently.
Guess what, for $67, 
I got myself 4 tops, one pair of shorts, one tube skirt, one jumper suit.

The top & shorts were part of my awesome grabs :D

my buddy brought me to try some green beer recently,
@ Reddot Brewery.
It looked weird & I doubted the taste of it honestly,
but yea it was good in fact.
*Throws in a cliche statement*
Never judge a book by its cover.
I mean, never judge a beer by its colour!

We also went to try the breakfast sets at Club Street Social recently

Club Street Social
5 gemmill lane,
Singapore (069261)
I would say the food was pretty okay,
not awesomely awesome, but not bad either.
I love the ambiance though!
Didnt manage to take photos of the place but koped one from its facebook page

You can give it a try if you are seeking for new places to hangout in the day :)

& of course,
my lil' sunshine. :D

& the love of my life! :)

Last but not least, 
did dubbing for 对对碰 (It Takes Two)
