Yeap…i said it – work kills. Work kills your time, drains your energy, saps every ounce of brain juice from you. Previously when I was soooo tired, I even managed to coin and tell my colleague a phrase that i was “drain bead” : go figure.

Anyway work’s a little…erm… how should I put it, sucky. But that’s life sometimes right? For many nights since I got back from my 2 weeks of leave (heaven~~~) I’ve been working pretty late. I hope I can get off work by 7.30 tomorrow cos I’ve a date……with my cousins 🙂 I can’t wait! TGIF indeed!

Hmmm one more thing…my brother said that he needed a “gullible adult” so that he could bet with him/her that if he could poke a hole through a potato with a straw, he would get $5.
I thought about it – how do you actually do it???
Man…this is not a matter of whether I’m naive, but whether I’m dumb?? 😛 Oh dear… is it some sciency fact? argh this is kill my sleep tonight.

bah!

crazy young boy? October 5, 2008

Filed under: Renzi-Ramblings — renzi @ 8:39 pm

whaooooo…. one of my cell mates sent me this link and it’s amazing how the kid could have killed almost AUD5,000 worth of animals in Australia to feed a crocodile physically, and feed his probable inquisitive self. I do agree that someone had to take responsibility and if anything at all, the parents should take responsibility. In most cases, if a kid gets into trouble, the parents should take (at least) major responsiblity. There’s no way they should even blame any other party. If the kid does something wrong, you can’t possibly blame the school, society or whatever because everything, I believe, begins at home.

Think in Singapore especially, parents always think that kids should be taught certain values in school but certain things like courtesy, manners should start from home. Oh well…just something i thought. Oh well…

 

randomness September 14, 2008

the above were random photos taken from my friendster account… hahaha. today will prob be the last time i’ll be on friendster. I’m and have always been lazy to update it. I tink facebook will face (no pun in intended) the same fate…oh well, we’ll see.

If I could choose a middle name without any fear of judgement from anyone, it would be random. I’ve always been random. For those who know me they would know that pretty well. I remember just on Saturday when I had a meeting with Ms Lai and Mr Loy, they were extremely amused at what I could do with merely a sweet. Hur hur… I’d better just spare you the details

Anyway Im playing LOVE SONG by Sara Bareilles and I’m so totally into the song!!! 🙂 It’s really catchy…another tune to look out for is…Bleeding Love? Yeah, that’s quite a good one too. Two of these songs are good for running.

Speaking of running, i need to run. I mean, I REALLY NEED TO RUN!!! I’ve a 10km run which I definitely need to complete, because…erm…er… I’ve been procrastinating. I signed up for at least 4 runs, and I didn’t turn up for any. *embarrassed* oh well… time to get cracking…. since I signed up for another year of membership with my usual gym, sigh….it’s a sign…

Sigh….another sign…. time’s passing by so quickly! In like 1 weeks time I’m going to have my extraction of two of my wisdom teeth, i’m scared to my wits. I’m a wuss I tell you. After extracting like 4 for my braces, I swore then that I wouldn’t extract any more. Guess I just have to grit my teeth and get it over and done with…wait, I can’t do that…argh!

Enough randomness for the day I reckon. Just thought of this song…I sang this when I was in Secondary School. I never knew it would come to my head today. It’s a pretty simple sweet song. It’s a reminder for me to lean on God at all times. I encourage you to look through the lyrics, better still, try to find out the tune for this…it’ll get stuck in your head. And I pray it will tho, as it is a gentle reminder that someone’s out there, looking out for you 🙂

Are you tired of chasing pretty rainbows?
Are you tired of spinning round and round?
Wrap up all those shattered dreams of your life
And at the feet of Jesus, lay them down.

Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus
Shattered dreams, wounded hearts, and broken toys.
Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus
And He will turn your sorrows into joy.

He never said you only see sunshine,
He never said there would be no rain.
He only promised a heart full of singing
About the very thing that once brought pain.

Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus
Shattered dreams, wounded hearts, and broken toys.
Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus
And He will turn your sorrows into joy.

 

the good ol’ days? September 3, 2008

Filed under: Friends,Renzi-Ramblings — renzi @ 1:29 pm

I just met up with a really old friend from my primary school. We were reminiscing about everything – from my copying of her spelling words to my classmates etc. I told her that I never liked my Primary School and I really thank God that I didn’t end up going to the secondary school that had a love bridge connected to another notorious school. The school was filled with bitchiness and I just probably hated every bit of it. Those 6 years there were probably my most miserable.

I was telling her that she was the only primary school friend whom I keep in touch with and it’s no surprise as well, I just wasn’t able to communicate on the same level with the rest of my friends. They wanted to take off their belts and rebel, swear… I on the other hand, was just too lazy to bother about being cool and bitchy Hahaha… maybe i was too soft-spoken, maybe i was even introverted (hur hur, much to many people’s disbelief, it’s true lah!)

Anyway this friend of mine is married already! I’m so happy for her! 🙂 Yet another friend who’s married already but yeah, I’m really happy for her. It was a good time of catching up and it kinda dawned on us that we were friends for almost 2 decades! How scary is that! She kept saying that we were not getting any younger and when was my turn… hahaha… oh well, we’ll just have to wait and see after Oct08 – the make or break talk.

I’m right now just very thankful to God for my friends from secondary school alllllll the way to uni days, esp those close ones who have seen me through my ups and downs. 🙂

 

Love Song September 2, 2008

Filed under: Lyrics,Renzi-Ramblings — renzi @ 2:01 pm

Head under water
And they tell me to breathe easy for a while
Breathing gets harder, even I know that
Made room for me it’s too soon to see
If I’m happy in your hands
I’m unusually hard to hold on to

Blank stares at blank pages
No easy way to say this
You mean well, but you make this hard on me

I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you asked for it
‘Cause you need one, you see
I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you tell me it’s
Make or breaking this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving I’m gonna need a better
Reason to write you a love song today, today yeah

I learned the hard way
That they all say things you wanna hear
And my heavy heart sinks deep down under you and
Your twisted words,
Your help just hurts
You are not what I thought you were
Hello to high and dry

Convinced me to please you
Made me think that I need this too
I’m trying to let you hear me as I am

I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you asked for it
‘Cause you need one, you see
I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you tell me it’s
Make or breaking this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving I’m gonna need a better
Reason to write you a love song today

Promise me that you’ll leave the light on
To help me see, with daylight my guide gone
Cause I belive there’s a way
You can love me because I said
I won’t write you a love song
‘Cause you asked for it
‘Cause you need one, you see

I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you tell me it’s make or breaking this

Is that why you wanted a love song
‘Cause you asked for it
‘Cause you need one, you see
I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you tell me it’s make or breaking this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If your heart is nowhere in it
I don’t want it for a minute
Babe, I’ll walk the seven seas when I believe that
There’s a reason to
Write you a love song today todayyy yeah yeah yeah

 

An eventful 1.5 weeks. December 1, 2007

Filed under: Myself,Photos,Renzi-Ramblings — renzi @ 11:26 am

I’m soooooooo tired. In fact I think I’m more tired than when I first started off with my leave. But of course I won’t complain any further for the fear of being stoned. hahahaha

breathtaking After my yummy dinner w Avril and a few others and my first ENCHANTED movie the night before, I woke up bright and early to make my first trip to PULAU UBIN! It was my first time and yes…i’m a suaku no more! Well this lake took my breath away. The lake was CLEAR and well, I don’t suppose you’ll see this anywhere else in Singapore, no? Isn’t it beautiful?

Everyday is a winding road Yeah, I was trying to catch up with EuLee more often than not, especially when we were going up slopes.

Watching the roadTechniques of cycling Renzi’s techniques for cycling. First, try not to fall down…Second, if you do fall, do it with grace 😛

Ginseng?? It was a good time, especially when we dropped by this shop. This uncle was explaining to a few of us the medicinal values of certain roots, plants (like the roots in the pictures, apparantly they have qualities of cleansing the blood). VERY VERY INTERSTING. Sadly I reckon most of this people who lead really simple lives have so much knowledge but very few will be passed down to the next generation – most of it will remain with them in their grave. Well after that Eu Lee and I just went for lunch, not too bad. … very home-style kind…yummm hmm for more photos, click here.

The gals Jinx is back from oz! 🙂 Hahaha and for good! Anyway Let me try to recall what else happened before I talk about Sunday…Last thursday after cycling at Ubin, I went to watch Enchanted AGAIN with Eu Lee before meeting Karen for dinner. And on Friday, after packing my room, I also can’t remember what I did. Some holiday eh? ULGH…hate it when I’ve a mental block.

My Pseudo Well I could remember after church and all, I had dinner w the guys…Pseudo, Keith and Sara… 🙂

Monday I went out with Mrs Chng at Parkway. It was really a good time chatting and catching up after not seeing her for a few years. She was updating me about the new Secondary school etc… 🙂 After meeting her, I went to meet Honfei in Orchard (Yes I flew down to Orchard in a cab). Caught up with him before I flew down to East Coast to have coffee with EuLee since we couldn’t find any decent place to canoe.

Charms and I On Tuesday, I went out with Charms for tea after having lunch at Jean’s place. For both of these gals, I had a great time just chatting and reliving the good times. I was just telling Charms that this is really the life, just chilling and living some tai-tai life. Hur hur…

Yummyyy After meeting her, I met Roy for dinner at Tiong Bahru. Pity some shops were closed but somehow I chose somehting so simple and well, safe. It’s nice nonetheless! We proceeded to walk to Chinatown for some snack before walking from Chinatown to City Hall, to Bugis, To Lavender and finally to Geylang where I threw in the towel and took a *surpirse surpirse* cab back home.

Wednesday, I went out with the brother (after lunch with Jean again) at Tampines. Afterwhich, I went night cycling with EuLee. It was raining and it was a great feeling to cycle in the rain 🙂 (although I am falling a little sick right now)

Thursday, I helped EuLee out with his shoot in the morning before I went shopping at Vivo with Daniel. Daniel and I ended up at Plaza Singapura before walking to Old School and then to Little India before taking a cab to shop in Tanglin and our last stop – Tau Hui at Rochor 🙂 Mannn…I must remember to get photos from him 🙂

Friday, I had breakfast with EuLee, yeah, he’s the only one who’s free all the time man. Every freaking one else was working or had to study. hahahah…. After breakfast at Katong, I met Ken for a while before meeting for tea with EuLee AGAIN.

bestiesFinally ended my day at Raffles Hotel for the Blancpain launch. We then headed to Portsdown for supper before I met Danny, Sara and Keith for a drink at the former Ken’s 🙂

Eventful week and a half I must say… right now I’m really drained. TGIS! And Monday’s back to work…Guess although I couldn’t go ANYWHERE this time round, it was good catching up with some people who’ve been missign in my life for a few months/years. And I reckon I wasted so much money on cabs, enough to suffice as a holiday 😛 AHAHAHAHAHA

Back to work on monday 😦

 

Some people are just beyond me. June 23, 2007

Filed under: ACJC,Life's like this, eh?,Renzi-Ramblings — renzi @ 12:25 am

Really…today I was this close to swearing. Maybe I had quite a long day at work, or maybe I was already slightly irritated by certain antics of someone at work but man, someone almost made me swear a string of I would say, not-so-nice-words. As many would know, especially Mr Loy (because he tried SOOOOO hard to make me swear), I haven’t really been swearing. So this person really almost pushed me to…well…yeah…Keith…if u wanna make me swear, learn from this person. 🙂

One saving grace of today…well 2 actually… I met up with two of my boys, wait… I met up with Dom first. And I actually saw TWO of my loves on the streets (my cousin and Pseudo). I really had a good time with Dom, catching up with him and of course, getting a present for a dear friend of mine. I also met up with Ken. 🙂

Another thing tat made my day is…I’m officially unemployed! I’m officially a Zuo Bo-er…….for 2 days! hahahaha Hopefully the future would be better and yeah..too lazy to type anymore. zzz

Good night world.
