Friday: Beer with Sam, good old Heineken never fails me

Saturday: Zouk with Ade & Andrew – which translates to vodka redbull jugs and apple shooters, two gin tonics as well

Sunday: Drinks at Robertson Walk then clubbing at Play, involving more gin tonic & vodka redbull

Monday: I had some wine at home – Moscato, mmmm good stuff. 

Tuesday: a 12 hour drinking marathon with Ade, omg I had so much champagne! and then so much whisky! I was in heaven. Then when i came home I had a 12 hour sleeping marathon.  Damn shiok. 

I need to detox. Anyway, here’s something nice for you to look at (:


Mmmm good stuff.

sometimes i ache.
ache for those i love.
ache for those i hold dear.
when the shit starts to slide like an avalanche down onto their noses,
engulfing them in layers of nonsense,
of mindless fucked up nonsense,
i ache for them to know that they are not alone.
that no matter how fucked up the shit is,
they’ll get through.
that the little light they do not see yet is there,
and that light is not going anywhere. 

Not that I am a self righteous prick who believes that I can pull them out of their misery
because misery is a dish for one.
best enjoyed alone.
no, my job is just to linger.
i’ll be that shadow, the one that gets longer as you walk closer to it,
the one who will be there when you reach out.
when you are ready to face the light again,
to be the person i once knew,
i’ll hold your hand. cause that what friends do. 

i hope you find this.

And when you scan the radio 
I hope this song will guide you home

I chanced upon this blog some time ago, and I love its emo-ness. It contains the kind of post break up sadness that you can relate to. When I read some of the posts it seriously struck a chord deep in the emo recesses of my heart, so rare and so beautiful. 

“I honestly couldn’t care less if you like the same bands or you’ve read the same books. Tell me one original thing, tell me one true, real thing that brings me to my fucking knees that I’ve never heard before and I’m yours.”

“I’m not the person you left behind anymore. There’s no one here to miss.”

“You want me to be made of the same thin paper as you. But it’d feel like I was kissing cardboard.”

“Making love was never about you and me in a bed. We made love whenever we held hands.”

“Do you remember when we were vampires? Do you remember when we ran through the streets at night, our heads back, laughing and screaming, so alive it felt like we owned the world? Do you remember? 
Do you remember me?”

Amazing stuff.

I’m finally having holidays and all I can think about is how I should have worked for another month. Look at me, I’m not even in the corporate world and I’m already choosing to WORK over staying at home and not doing anything. I’m so going to be sucked into making moneyzzz next year. I’m determined to take some time off and relax a little now. 

So here’s what I’ve been up to:

Music – Downloaded some pretty good new stuff (: as well as some old stuff that I lost when my baby crashed 


Its amazing how happy music makes me. 

Movies – re-watched some old favs (: and caught two new ones (on tv of course)


Seriously, the kind of trash they are throwing out these days, Save the last dance 2 was SO BLOODY BAD. I really wanted to change the channel 29389283 times but the lead actress is very pretty, so I continued watching – there wasn’t anything else to watch on tv anyways. She acted in Coyote Ugly, as one of the hot hot coyotes – I love that movie btw.

Mr. Magorium’s wonder emporium is a little less demented version of Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, I prefer Charlie though, its like 10000 times better. I need to watch some good movies. 

Other things (:

I got myself a Holga! After wanting a film camera for a really really long time, I wrote it down in my diary like 3 years ago, I finally put my money on one, it should be arriving soon! 

Actually I have nothing else to blog about, my life is boring. I’m going to have dinner and rot in front of the tv for the next two hours. So glad the weekend is almost here, not that I have many plans, just means that I have the opportunity to make some! Btw, my holiday is going to last till the 3rd of Feb. What am I supposed to do with myself?

I went to Zouk with these sweet hos on Friday (: We spent too much money on alcohol and my hooker heels made me very tall. It was fun.

P: Yea I have some friends who are really into photography. 
Other person: Oh, how about you?
P: Nah, no real interest, I just like being photographed.

I know you like it too, I just said it out loud. I really love dreamy photographs, they’re really peaceful.
