Last Weekend of 2008

Nope, I did not fall sick (thank goodness!). The weekend went well, I had some fun.

So this is it, the end of the last weekend of 2008. The next weekend, it'll be a brand new year with brand new hopes and opportunities.

I'll leave the new year speech till the actual end of the year lah hehehe... I just felt like posting something in conjunction with the last weekend of 2008. Somehow it feels special to me.

Half-sick

They say mild sickness is a blessing (小病是福). I say it depends on how mild. I now have weak muscles, slight headache, and I am feeling slightly cold. Feels like an onset of a fever, yet it's too mild to go to a doctor. Alas, it's Friday afternoon and if it were to develop into a full-fledged fever, there goes my weekend. Noooooo!!!

I shall practice the Law of Attraction and think healthy!

If you're wondering what the Law of Attraction is, try reading or watching The Secret.

P/s: I remember falling sick during Christmas last year too. What is this? Literally Christmas fever?

Merry Christmas 2008!

Friends and family, where ever you are, whatever you're doing, remember to think of your loved ones this holiday season!

Have a pleasant Christmas this year, everyone.


"All I Want for Christmas is You"
by Mariah Carey

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There's just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is...
You

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There's just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won't make me happy
With a toy on Christmas day
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you
You baby

I won't ask for much this Christmas
I don't even wish for snow
I'm just gonna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe
I won't make a list and send it
To the North Pole for Saint Nick
I won't even stay awake to
Hear those magic reindeers click
'Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do
Baby all I want for Christmas is you
Ooh baby
All the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of children's
Laughter fills the air
And everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa won't you bring me the one I really need
Won't you please bring my baby to me...

Oh I don't want a lot for Christmas
This is all I'm asking for
I just want to see my baby
Standing right outside my door
Oh I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Baby all I want for Christmas is...
You

All I want for Christmas is you... baby (repeat and fade)

Something Really Did Happen

Remember two entries ago, I said "...it's still some time to go before the holidays. Maybe it won't be so bad after all?"?

Something really did happened. I rediscovered the joy of giving and in return I received something totally out of expectations. It's been eons since I felt that touched, especially in Singapore, that I suddenly felt the urge to cry (I didn't, I don't cry THAT easily). I guess it's true when they say if you open up to people, people will open up to you too.

It's not gonna be such a bad Christmas after all...even if I was going to go through it alone.

Something's Amiss this Year

Usually around this time of the year, I'm all hyped over the Christmas and New Year holidays. But this year, I just don't feel all that joyful. I keep listening to Christmas songs over and over again. Alas, the nearer it is to the holidays, the gloomier I feel.

What is it about this year that makes it so different? Maybe it's the consternation that I might be going through Christmas and New Year's Day alone this year. That's right, my first Christmas and New Year alone. Where are my friends? They are either across the seas or across the straits.

What about my local friends? Sometimes I wonder if I really have any. Let's just say I don't think spending the holidays with them will necessarily be better than doing it alone.

But then again, it's still some time to go before the holidays. Maybe it won't be so bad after all?
