Invisible

Invisible

What you doin’ tonight
I wish I could be a fly on your wall
Are you really alone
Who’s stealin’ your dreams
Why can’t I bring you into my life
What would it take to make you see that I’m alive

[Chorus]

If I was invisible
Then I could just watch you in your room
If I was invincible
I’d make you mine tonight
If hearts were unbreakable
Then I could just tell you where I stand
I would be the smartest man
If I was invisible
(Wait..I already am)

Saw your face in the crowd
I call out your name
You don’t hear a sound
I keep tracing your steps
Each move that you make
Wish I could read what goes through your mind
Wish you could touch me with the colors of your life

[Chorus]

If I was invisible
Then I could just watch you in your room
If I was invincible
I’d make you mine tonight
If hearts were unbreakable
Then I can just tell you where I stand
I would be the smartest man
If I was invisible
(Wait..I already am)

I reach out
But you don’t even see me
Even when I’m scream out
Baby, you don’t hear me
I am nothing without you
Just a shadow passing through…

[Repeat Chorus]

If I was invisible…
If I was invisible…
If I was invisible…
If I was invisible…
If I was invisible…
If I was invisible…

MIA

Posted in It's my life, Life's simple pleasures on October 3, 2008 by shiying86

MIA=missing n action

Something I’ve been practicing diligently, if I would shamefully proclaim. Why? Cos I happen to both be lazy and busy, if those two ever happen to coexist, it’ll be with me. To better illustrate this, I will confess that I only check out facebook once in 2 weeks. Yes, I don’t have a social life and No, I am not suffering from depression. So bugger off now.

Thus, in an attempt to revive the blog and my life, I will blog again in an upside down manner, from most recent to future. Which brings me to this:

Distortion of scale:Valley or puddles of water?

Image taken at Maroubra, with Cheng Hiang’s super-uber cool macro lense.

And, no, I will not get one cos I’m too poor and too lazy to carry it around.

Which brings me to say that, I have not been taking photos myself, the baby(my trusty Canon D500) is old and dusty. I’m poor cos I’m a student and I currently using my very expensive recent purchase as large as my bed. Does this mean I have to take another photo to illustrate this?

Oh well, I’ll divert it to pretty images taken off the coastal walk along Maroubra Beach and half-way attempt to Magic Point:

“I beg you please, let me move in with you!”

“Yea..whatever..”

And that was how it happened, in a short version of my story. Voila! May I introdue to you my new housemate-Khai Yi:

One Happy Family, oh wait, where’s Rosie?

P/S:It’s amazingly fast to upload photos and actually update my blog now! I love my new.. oh wait, that deserves another post eh?

Life’s good

Love lounging on the Physics lawn doing nothing-bludger that’s me.

O-week coming right up!

New Vocab

Posted in Life's simple pleasures, nonsense on March 3, 2008 by shiying86

Welcome to Jo-Din-Ying Dictionary. We speak a slightly different language which still consist of English words. Why? I don’t know, maybe we are freaks, or maybe we just don’t want people to break our threesome-codes.

But then again, I have just decided to reveal them…sorry folks!

The most recent addition:

1.  Lunner(pronounced as La-nne in an indian accent):

A meal taken between lunch and dinner time. Word coming from Lunch + Dinner. Similar to Brunch. There is no intention of it sounding very much like a certain punjabi word. Any similiarities was only, well, coincidental. 😉

Having Lunner at Barker Unit 6 with Unit 9 household. Photographer: Dominic

From left, Maya, Dinesh, me, Tom, Jo, Diana Missing:Dominic

2.  Ibis and Crow:

Ibis

Crow

Major, major crisis. Origin of word-what would happen if an Ibis cross bred with a crow? *shock* disastrous crisis. Precisely my point.

More to come in the future.

3A residence

I went from mingling with brothers, back my bunch of sistas in my Sydney residence. 

From left(clockwise): me, Susan, Rosie and Linus in Sunnataram 2007

Sadly, Susan is now in Melbourne working, I’m wishing her all the best here and that I miss her.

So, it’s back to gossipy nights and Gal’s PJs. Or just me, bugging everyone, like good old days.

10 years of friendship

Posted in It's my life, Life's simple pleasures on February 11, 2008 by shiying86

I never imagine that it would happen, especially only at the age of 21. But it did. and I’m glad.

 

Birthday gift: Crumpler laptop cover and my birthday card

Best friends always remember so well

all the things they did together

all the mostakes they made

all the fun they had.

Best Friends always remeber

how their friendship

was such a stabalizing force

during confusing times in their lives

Best friends may have different lifestyles

live in different places

and interact with different people

but no matter jow much their lives change

their freidnship remains the same

I know tha throughout my life

wherever I am

I will always remember so well

and cherish our friendship

as one of the best

I have ever known.

-Susan Polis Schutz-

That’s what the card says, and I must say the same to you as well.

Thank you, Ee Ling…for everything.
