A friend who seems to know me quite well

Over a Saturday lunch at Curve, I managed to fetch these comments from a friend:
  • PY, you have commitment phobia don't you but yet you are so terrified of loneliness
  • PY, you look quite mature don't you but yet in your inner self you are quite a kid
  • PY, you won't stop thinking about the various options you have in life don't you but yet you are quite lost and have not figure out what you want in life

I have to admit, though he is not a very close or old friend of mine, but the things he said about me were slightly true.

Moving On

That night she came home and took a look at the calendar; 6th of January 2009. She paused for a second thinking what was the event that she had missed. Then the bells rang in her mind and she recalled what she had almost forgotten; 3rd of January 2009. This date marked the 2nd year from the day they allow tears to roll down their cheeks.

It's almost unbelievable how things have now turned. When she wanted to move on so badly, he seems to have hung on to her mind like a leech but without herself realising, she somehow moved on and her mind felt happiness long after her heart felt it.

Her hatred for their past no longer occupied a space in her heart nor her mind. What is left now are just some memories of how comfortable they once used to be when they were together. To be honest with herself, she was glad that chapter of her life has ended. Though it did not ended in a gentle way but it certainly ended with a good purpose. Just like a splash of cold water in one's face early in the morning. Freezing but does a lot to wake one up from the sleepiness.

As her body felt the fatigue from the long hard day, she began to find her way to her bed. Laying on the bed, she realised she found peace as she found forgiveness in her heart. Closing her eyes and resting her mind, she dozed off moving on to a bright new day.

My New Year Eve: Ministry of Sound

I love my new year eve party at Ministry of Sound. It was as though every piece to make a great party got themselves right in place last night :)

The place: Fabulous and posh interior with amazing lightnings and sound system. We love the dance floor. It was simply a bizarre. It was as though the wave of the sound was directed to the dance floor. As we were grooving to the music on the dance floor, we can feel the music in our head and not just hitting to our skin. Can't visualise it? Try thinking the difference of listening to music with a headphone as compared to some normal small PC speakers ;)

The music: I don't need to further elaborate on that as we will never doubt the quality of the music played by the DJs at MOS. The mix were fantastic :)

The crowd: As they managed their headcounts strictly, if I'm not mistaken 2000 only for that night, they had just the right amount of clubbers to make the party alive and yet bearable that we don't spend most of our time trying to squeeze around or queuing up for the washroom ;)

Our table: Initially, there were some complications. Our own headcount grew bigger than we have expected and we could no longer fit ourselves to the couch booked, which were way too small for us. N resolved it and managed to move us to another bigger couch. Apologies N, that we spoilt the party a lil' bit. So... Thanks a bunch N! Way to go N! Two thumbs up N! :)

Our drinks: We had 12 bottles of whiskey with us, which alas, we couldn't finish... Well, I just want to enjoy myself with the right amount of alcohol. Misbehaving was a big NO NO for me that night. I don't want to wake up with a horrible headache. Definitely not a good way to start off my 2009 ;)

Our people: Yes, people. Being the soul of a great party. I had some very good and fun friends who managed to make it there for the party. In fact it was not some, but a lot of my good old friends were there with me last night. There were more than 20 of us there :)

If you are a clubber, you would wish you were there too. But if you are not one, you may tell me, "Get a life, PY. What else do you do other than club on each and every one of these festive days." Yeah, I'm a hardcore clubber and I'm not ashamed of it. I love it ... ;)
