Miles and miles away

A dear friend of mine - Caroline recently reminded me how I'm "miles away from the brown prefect's uniform of St Teresa days". So true indeed -it suddenly just dawned on me that even college
and uni days are now of the past. What more the times when I was Primary 3. Am I old?

I was blessed to be off work today so I can get myself sorted and to have some lots of "me time" to ponder and reflect on the past year - "emoness" alert

Let's see- where shall i begin?

New Year’s Eve 2007 - seafood delight at my favourite Top Spot 'Bukit Mata' back in the comfort of Kuching with my parents.

Still without a camera - only my trustee webcam

Yummy salted prawns

Missing Midin - have eaten enough of broccoli, carrots, celery, lettuce and tomatoes

One year later (New Year's Eve 2008) - alone in the comfort of my Perth home, blogging (unbelievable) and no seafood.

Tonight some friends are going to have dinner before going to watch fireworks display in Burswood but I've decided to start the New Year with some sleep - well at least that's the plan.

Yesterday was intentionally good fun. It was a good change of atmosphere as opposed to serving grumpy depressed customers who did not seem to be happy that it’s almost New Year’s. WHY?! Anyway, I was out for Korean dinner with 7 other girls at To Be Gi before rushing off for a "late night" movie at 9.15pm.

We enjoyed watching Brad Pitt "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" which had a 2 hour 40 minutes running time which very unfortunately took longer due to a faulty projector but it was definitely worth every cent of the $10 I paid although I had to battle against feeling tired and sleepy from the day's work or rather the weather- it’s been warm if not hot of late and it makes me lethargic and gives me a very unnecessary headaches AND makes me want to eat ice cream.

The best part was being able to stretch myself out over 4 seats!

I have found a new interest in Corrinne May's inspirational songs - melodious and so pleasant. Here's one of her songs "Journey"

It's a long long journey
Till I know where I'm supposed to be
It's a long long journey
And I don't know if I can believe
When shadows fall and block my eyes
I am lost and know that I must hide
It's a long long journey
Till I find my way home to you

Many days I've spent
Drifting on through empty shores
Wondering what's my purpose
Wondering how to make me strong

I know I will falter
I know I will cry
I know you'll be standing by my side
It's a long long journey
And I need to be close to you

Sometimes it feels no one understands
I don't even know why
I do the things I do
When pride builds me up till I can't see my soul
Will you break down these walls and pull me through

Cause it's a long long journey
Till I feel that I am worth the price
You paid for me on Calvary
Beneath those stormy skies

When Satan mocks and friends turn to foes
It feels like everything is out to make me lose control
Cause it's a long long journey
Till I find my way home to you
To you
