Bad bad day…

Kicking up the leaves…I was reminded of a very nice song I hear a while back while drivnig alone late night. It’s "Bad Day by Daniel Powter"
 
Where is the moment when you need it the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is gone
they tell me your blue skys fade to grey
they tell me your passions gone away
and I don’t need no carryin’ on
 
stand in the line just ahead of the law
youre faking a smile with the coffee you go
you tell me your lifes been way offline
youre falling to pieces everytime
and I don’t need no carryin’ on.
 
Cause you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don’t lie
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day
well you need a blue sky holiday
the point is they laugh at what you say
and I don’t need no carryin’ on
 
cause you had a bad day
you’re taking one down
you sing a sad song just to turn it around
you say you don’t know
you tell me dont lie
you work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don’t lie
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day

Sometimes the system goes on the blink
And the whole thing it turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know
That you could be well oh that strong
Well I’m not wrong

So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

Cause you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
You’ve seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day
You had a bad day
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

 
A really nice song, a pity I couldn’t find it on the internet…they don’t sell it online?

Thumbs up for the hospitality in Taipei

It’s so good to be back home after a one week stint in Taipei. A new system (very very new to me though) to test out and it’s giving quite a bit of problem. I am not quite sure where I did wrong, but at least I managed to achieve what basic it requires. I made some new friends from Taipei, and what a roudy bunch we can become! I got to test out some new commands I had never tried before, and got lots of help from them AnDeSen’s peeps. James is my tour guide and very good pal during my stay in Taiwan. Brought me to many interesting places and see so many different sides of the culture that is rumoured to be of a messy repute. I enjoyed his company, and his friendliness; He and Eric are both very funny people, and to think I have difficulties communicating with them sometimes, it always end up in laughters. Mr. Zhu is a very devoted man to the world of power system! He’s not good in english, and so sometimes we can end up not quite understanding what each other meant, but he’s very funny when it comes to speaking in their first language. I enjoyed listening to them conversing with each other in their language, but I was at first quite puzzled at why James doesn’t really speak the tongue (he’s Hakkah, which later I found out). Life’s there pretty nice and cosy. The people there generally are very courteous, and friendly, a far cry from the typically Singaporean Goofiness (I can practically scream for help in Singapore and passerby only thinks I’m crazy). James brought me out to play around some interesting couple hotspots (he claimed), and it was fun! we played a lucky pulley thingy contraption, and I got a cute a little lollipop. It became a very useful tool to me later on my flight home, for a baby sitting beside me keeps brawling, and his parents can’t seem to calm him. so I dig for that little candy and gave it to him, that kept him quiet for sometime. So I can thank Mr. James for that sweet little thought. It’s been useful.
A little delay in flight due to strong winds and heavy air traffic had the plane to home flying zig-zag in M’siabefore landing, I find it fasinating as I watched the camera view on the bottom of the plane. Somewhere half way through the flight, someone got really sick and the ladies of the plane rushes to the sick and asking for help from passengers. One kind nurse offered her help (yahoo! well-done!) and I feel so proud to be Singaporean all over again.
Anyhow, I think my rant is getting a little too long to be enjoyed, so I’ll stop here. I will not forget this interesting trip to Taipei.

Doomsday has arrived

I am so seeing my doomsdays coming nearer and nearer; in fact, so near it is practically stranggling my neck as I typed this rant. I also found out that (gasp!!!!)…..no..I’m not pregnent…hahahaha…I’m broke!! well..let’s just put it nicely, me and Panda scraped and saved, and we managed to come up with 6K buckeroos to remit back to his parents. The exchange rate was very good so we made haste to come up with something to send so that the amount would be good to look at. And then I distributed my $$ all over..So I can collect back whenever I need it. It’s a good way to save too and I would be able to look after what I buy with proper care..
But the rant goes on a little more…I’m so booked up to go Taiwan now after so much hestitation from me boss. It’s scheduled on the 16th May and hopefully I can return by the 23rd May…that’s what the ticket shows anyway. Ha! So I promised so many people I’d look around Taiwan and see what knick knacks I can get there..and I’d promised Kwong he will get his Abby Kurent. Panda is not happy I’m going off at such short notice, but I pampered him by letting him know I’ll get him something nice there to fill his stomach! haha…Least he won’t be grumpy bear…
There! till another rant.
