The year was 2001

When the world was crazy about Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears...

I found this dude =)
...via Duke of Mount Deer 2000 (小宝与康熙) which remained one of my favourite HK dramas.

And these songs of his were my absolute favourite.

Still like 'em, actually...

I now realise what a strange little person I was, resisting conformity and day-dreaming half the day away.

I had a bad day

Woke up with an excruciating pain in my abdomen which lasted for the whole morning... cold sweats, nausea, dizziness, shivering, black-outs, the works...leaving me begging God for mercy and dangerously close intentions of calling 911 to give me a jab of pure, unadulterated morphine. Dysmenorrhoea's a b*tch.

Waited for a parcel that never came.

Waited for an electrician/plumber to fix the showers (that spews either freezing cold water or scalding hot water) and my broken ceiling lamp (getting too comfortable studying in the dark), only to find he'll be showing up tomorrow instead.

Way behind on my studies and pretty sure I'm gonna fail this term without God's graces.

Feel so exhausted today for no apparent reason (...may be due to writhing in agony half the day).

Then came a phone call which brought up every other crappy emotions: distrust, embarrassment, anger, sorrow, doubt, envy, neglect, worthlessness...

Damn the evil concoction of hormones that creates a soupy mess of chemical imbalance within my delicate circulations...every 28 freakin' days!

And hey, it's only 5.45pm. Let's see what else is there to come.

It's all about receiving!

Year 2010 has been pretty eventful, I must say, and *cue sentimental music* I...I don't think...I don't think I'm ready for a new year yet. It's just...It's just too soon. It's only been a week since I said goodbye to 2010. I'm not ready to commit to another year.

Ah...2010, you brought me much joy. Especially after a rather difficult relationship with the previous helped me give life a chance again. I shall never forget the moments we have together, my darling.

Anyway, enough moaning. I shall now brag about the presents I got 'last' year. Whoever said giving is better than receiving is clearly a person who has never received presents, the hypocrite.

On my '18th' birthday (Well, you see, the candles marked 22 is clearly a mistake)

  • Lovely pair of earrings from Eric
  • Exciting Grow-your-own-peanuts box from Cyn
  • A beautiful chocolate cake...
  • ...and GAP hat-glove-scarf set from XiaoLi, MengNi and Claire

Moving on to Christmas...
Sing along with know the song...

"2 Christmases ago, I gave you my heart...
but after a few weeks, you gave it away.
This year, to save me from tears,
I had my mother interrogate you before I started dating again."

Now let's talk about the stuff I got! Because we all know that's why you're still reading this.

  • Fluffy, red ladybug slippers and...
  • ...Cosy Vero moda knit sweater from Eric
  • Cute earrings from Cyn
  • Adorable Cupcake mug from Jen
But the most amazing Christmas present I got this year is to have everybody I love crammed in a tiny 2 accessible bedroom for 3 weeks with enough food to feed an army.

'Mom and Dad on top of Primrose Hill'

'New Year's Eve dinner with the family'

Now everybody's gone back to where they need to be, I feel so...alone. And exams are coming up, and I've got homework I haven't finished...and terms starting in a couple of days. Damn you 2011. It's only been a week and you've already started scroowing with me.
