long time no see :)
i guess that’s an understatement right haha.
i admit i haven’t been following the blog, so today, about 3 hours before i leave for iceland for what will probably be the best 6 days of my life, i’m going to do a post to you all ….
…but looking at all the posts, it’s truly astonishing how much you’ve grown. i don’t have to be there to literally see it, i can already read from your writings that you’ve all gained a better perspective of life, on seeing the larger the picture of faith, and giving thanks to God in all trials and tribulations. ok maybe except for naomi who posts the retarded pictures.
joking la. (is singlish allowed here?)
i smile at rachel’s wit about man’s ability to understand and conceive great ideas, it’s not bad, even if it’s waffling haha. i laugh at how jan and nat quibble about hating long posts, when they are the main contributors to them. i cheer at naomi’s abiility to find the RANDOMEST stuff to post here. and how she reposts stuff from mel’s blog. hahaha. i like Hill’s sharing about her life (man your mum is hilarious)….i dun really like how i have to turn my computer sideways to read what claire is posting, but i like the words.
little fragments of your lives, and as i read them, i feel like i’m picking them up one by one…metaphorically anyway.
WHERE’S YAN YAN?!
but anyway, i just want to tell you girls that i’m more than good, i’ve learnt and lived through so much in this past three months…past half a year, if you include new york, that i don’t know how to share it without me jumping and tripping over myself like an angry bird clattering into a bunch of those pigs.
maybe some pictures will help. just to let you know what i’ve been up to for the past couple of months..
the horizon from Cork, Ireland…
another one from bristol harbour, england….
…flocking around the pissing boy in brussels, belgium. it’s just a statue of a boy peeing, but they make a big deal about their city icons, which are essentially 3 statues - a pissing boy, a pissing girl, and a pissing dog. well it’s not like we have our own city icon - the peeing lion at esplanade.
….cycling through the night lights of amsterdam. man, amsterdam is crazily eye-opening.
…here’s a side of paris people won’t show you often. i thought abt putting up a picture of the eiffel but i bet you weren’t expecting this. haha. they are real by the way. the skulls and bones. it made me think: in the end, we all look the same leh, famous or unknown, rich or poor, saint or tyrant.
this is like 3 months in a VERY VERY small nutshell.
i’m off to iceland tomorrow, for one last hurrah! it’s going to be CRAZY. my original plan with my friend was to rent a car and a tent and sleep outside, and just drive to some random God-knows-where on the map, but looking at the temperatures in iceland - minus 9 to minus 11 types… i don’t know if i’ll freeze to death there. and now there’s this icelander who’s having this winter party there and we’re all going… it’s just crazy. who knows what will happen when we’re there. excited just thinking about it. woo!
i think i’m going to hate packing up for singapore.
but, whenever i read your posts, i think of the cell i’ve called family in the last 4 years back in church…..i can’t help but look forward to it :)
