Walking On A Dream

"We are always running for the thrill of it thrill of it

Always pushing up the hill searching for the thrill of it

On and on and on we are calling out and out again

Never looking down I'm just in awe of what's in front of me"

Kites

my wings are like this
all my words on his lips


and my brain is on edge
i'm next to the bed
where i saw you


my weight is like his
we both lost what we kissed


and my hate burns like this
in my hands in his fist


and my love is so quick
like the legs of my kids


all the worlds i could lift
only fit
where i saw you


pile lover upon lover
'til we're covered with skin


there's nothing to discover
from the thunder and lightning


there's no way to recover
this is love not loving


but now we are all each other
i was a brother when i saw you

Speed and Ice

Hello!~

Soooooo ~ I finally tried the Segway and Luge at Sentosa!!! Being a Singaporean, it seems a little weird not to have tried the Luge. But I always thought it would be mega scary so I never really had the guts to try it hahaha. I had imagined a super steep slope and having to ride a vehicle that would be going as fast as speed racers. Yes, my fertile imagination -.-"' Anyway, the Luge ended up being extremely enjoyable, although I got a teensy weensy scared near the sharp curves (Mainly because every time I play driving games in arcades, I crash my vehicle while doing those turns). But it was a great experience!  


Took the Skyline up to board the Luge.


The Segway turned out to be a 'scarier' experience than the Luge. Basically it's a vehicle that looks like this:


To operate the vehicle, you have to lean forward. And that was one part I took a little time to overcome. How could I lean forward when I felt jittery just standing atop the segway and imagine my impending fall haha. But!!! Bolstering some courage, I finally leaned forward and completed one round along the Segway course. I would say it's definitely something not everyone gets to try everyday, and it was fun while it lasted!

Moving on, I'm sure most of you would have heard about the 2Degree Ice Exhibition and Ice Bar in Singapore right now. I first got wind of it, I think, around December? Being pretty fond of novelty in small sunny Singapore, I was really excited to visit it. 

Many of my friends have visited the place, and most seemed to give pretty good reviews. So my expectations were rather high. Personally, I found the area too small. I had expected a larger space and more ice sculptures. It definitely looked bigger in pictures. The sculptures were definitely amazing, since ice carving and sculpting has never been an easy art. 

I guess the highlight of the entire exhibition would be the slides. There was one big slide, and two smaller side slides. For the big slide, they supplied two inflatable floats for you to sit on. I went on a Monday, so naturally there were much less people there than if I were to go on a weekend. I dread to imagine the long queue for the slides there must be on the weekends. 


One attractive aspect of the overall 2Degree ice experience would probably be the ice bar. I've seen multiple videos of people smashing their ice mugs (Yes, the mug is made out of ice) into the wall. So I was looking forward to being able to vent my frustrations on the ice mug muahaha. The interior of the ice bar was divided into two rooms. One room looked like a normal bar, while the other was entirely made of ice (Even the tables). It was really really small though, especially since I had expected the area to be connected with the exhibition. Anyway, it was freezing cold inside (-15 celsius) and my toes were starting to feel painful and numb so I quickly finished my beer and hurried to the mug smashing corner and threw my mug so hard it shattered into smithereens heh heh. I fully expected my mug to slip out of my gloved hand and remain intact, but I actually managed to shatter it!!! Felt super accomplished after that hahaha.

When I Write


As a kid growing up by modern standards, it seems pretty apparent that moderation is the key to well, almost everything. Extremes are never favored. Commonplace are the stories of people dying from extreme sports, essentially killing themselves by edging over to the end of the bar. Albeit being a rather rigid follower of probably most of today's ideals, I sometimes find myself drifting over to the fringe when I deal with certain issues, particularly those involving emotions. With particular concerns, it's either black or white for me, never grey.

When you eat an apple a day, it's healthy. When you eat ten in a day, suddenly it's called binge eating. I'm not calling that bad. In fact, it is true that overeating is bad for your body. But for me, extremes are simply how I deal with the creeping emotions whirling within. Love someone, love with everything that you've got. Hate someone, relinquish those last bits of adulation you still retain. Enjoy consuming, say, jelly? I gorge on them until my stomach cringes at the mere sight of jelly. And suddenly one day a switch is flicked, and I start craving jelly. And the cycle restarts. 

There's thin line between anger and relief. A thin line between love and hate. A thin line between happiness and sadness. Pushing myself over the threshold brings me intensity and eventually purges my soul of heart-rending inclinations. 

So I write. 

I write to rid myself of the despair that has been churning inside. Every single word encapsulates the inch that I have been angling towards. I write to ease myself and my soul.

Ergo, here's to regeneration of the spirits.

Gardener

I will plant my garden of romance and reverie 
Fill it with intricacies; decorate it with subtlety 
Shut the door on encroaching schmaltz 
Lose myself, in entirety   
I will plant my garden.

La Vie En Rose



Hold me close and hold me fast 
The magic spell you cast 
This is la vie en rose 

When you kiss me heaven sighs 
And tho I close my eyes 
I see la vie en rose 

When you press me to your heart 
I'm in a world apart 
A world where roses bloom 

And when you speak...angels sing from above 
Everyday words seem...to turn into love songs 

Give your heart and soul to me 
And life will always be 
La vie en rose

Masochist

Wind cackling, forlorn
Empty brain rewind
Rhythmic thumping as
Waves of images surging 
Like an ill-fitting shirt,
Pounding against skin,
Stretching and burning 

Straighten it, I desire 
Shirt weaved from unwilling 
Threads, billowing with
Breeze rushing against
Time.

Miracle Mile

















Wednesday, February 5, 2014

For someone whose strength never fails to amaze me

You died little remnants when she passed
Claws digging into soft flesh
Forlorn bird, reprieve you seek

Coffin driven into hard ground
Nerves stiffen, muscles tense
Tears beckon with intense gripe
Pummel with acute pang

Hard to fathom yes
Astounding clout possess 
Your floundering heart, dimming but
Burning with a fire intense

You are light
You dim not.

The Touch

"Then all this became history.
Your hand found mine. 
Life rushed to my fingers like a blood clot. 
Oh, my carpenter, 
the fingers are rebuilt. 
They dance with yours."
