Seventeen. 12 September.
Food. Music. Places. Books. Dreams.
And a tinge of pink.

I came across this and after watching it, I found myself tearing up…
When Soldier Lee Yong Hyuk enlisted, he found out that his mother has breast cancer and might not live long. Seeing that Superstar K4 came to his military training base to hold auditions, he decided to join and sing - as a final gift for his mother.
The song is called 엄마 (Mother) by Ra.D [original song | lyrics], and it is about appreciating everything that a mother has done. Now, I may not know Korean, but from the way he sings, it was enough to make me feel touched and get all teary-eyed just like PSY, Son Dam Bi and the soldiers present there.
I thought I’d just share this with everyone because sometimes we need a little reminder to realise that we shouldn’t take our mothers for granted and that we should always be thankful for everything they have done for us :’)
I’ve clocked about 75 hours as of yesterday and I’m feeling really really really happy right now because I’ve FINALLY completed the entire math revision package - YESSSS! Shall be starting on chem revision package soon and I guess it won’t be as bad.
Anyway, was talking to shiying yesterday/the day before about.. stuff, and we were discussing about how ‘noob’ we are since we’re already 17 but still haven’t gotten into a relationship before. So I said, “It’s okay luh, good things come to those who wait.” And she was like, “But I’ve already waited for 5 years.” HAHAHA! Totally burst out laughing luh, it’s quite funny actually (if you get what she means) xD Yeah but really, don’t worry friend! All these while you’ve had our whole squad’s support! *wink* LOL jkjk!
After our study session yesterday, shiying and I went JP’s Starbucks since they’re having their 1-for-1 promotion woohoo~! Queued for about half an hour (or slightly more than that) but it was worth it la! ^^ Got Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha (again) because I really like the drink and I doubt the tofflenut or peppermint would taste better xD
TADA~ Shiying was totally judging when I took this photo but hey, this is the tough life of a blogger okayyy LOL!
At night, I met my mom and sis for dinner at causeway point and after that, we went to do our annual shopping @ POPULAR to buy all the stationary needed for next year! It’s quite amazing how we spent about $220 in just 30 mins heh but since we also bought the expensive ink cartridges.. Aiya 一年一次, 一年一次! :P
Then when we reached home, my productivity level dropped to zero (as usual) and I just nua on the bed while watching Running Man. The latest episode is quite good I feel! The ending was unexpected too haha! People who’ve watched will understand.. 14357! LOL this number has been firmly stuck in my head ever since yesterday..
Oh anyway! My mom bought this tub (?) of Hershey’s chocolate ice cream which is incredibly tasty and I strongly recommend it although it costs $9.90 lol!
Woke up at 11.30pm feeling like an overcharged phone and it took me quite a long while before getting out of bed heh. Too bad the fact that today is my ‘off day’ doesn’t quite register into my mom’s head and she got me to run some errands. First, I went back to my primary school to help my sis collect her next year’s textbooks! Didn’t expect myself to be all nostalgic about it but it really felt good to be back again!
Looking at these familiar places, memories of me playing catching during recess with my primary school friends, eating at the canteen, doing prefect duties, studying in class and sincerely enjoying learning all came back to me. 没想到一转眼，五年就这样过去了… Hai I miss those days so much! And I miss my colourful primary school too haha!
Of course, it’s the people I miss the most. I had a dream of a person recently and it was such a vivid one. I guess no matter how long you haven’t been meeting someone, as long as they mean something to you, the connection will always be there..? Haha!
Oh well, perhaps that’s why 孙燕姿’s 天黑黑 will always remain as my favourite song of all times, because its meaningful lyrics never fail to remind me to look back at my past, don’t be too caught up with what I’m doing in the present, don’t fall in love blindly with someone, stay strong in this harsh and cruel world, learn from my mistakes and move on with life again (:
苏盈之 - <过得去>
This song is for you (:
