High up, Down under

[Sydney Downtown, 43rd floor, Meriton Tower]

Another city. Another lifestyle. Another experience. Another day has passed. Another amazing sunset. Another chance to say "this is the life". Yes, I would always say Singapore is the best place to bring up kids, but Sydney is definitely the best place to live.

i am inspired to take salsa/rhumba lessons. Haha, what's new Jared, jack of all trades and master of none? Then again tonight the elusive happiness returns. Maybe it will help if i stop being such a recluse

The Name's Jude

Today's one of those days. the sun refuses to shine, people are critical, the lifts are full and unboardable, tutorial's a pain, and this melancholic ditty sticks in my mind 24/7, reminding me of your absence. sa, kimi... yondekurete... kashi ga kantan nanoni, imi fukai darou...koishii na


心が今とても 穏やかなのは この日を迎えられた意味を
特別な事など何もない ただ いつもより少し
シャンとした服を着てるだけ 君はとても綺麗だよ

何かといつも忙しく まだまだ想い出は多くないけど
始まりの鐘が 今 この街に響き渡る

共に歩き 共に探し 共に笑い 共に誓い
共に感じ 共に選び 共に泣き 共に背負い
共に抱き 共に迷い 共に築き 共に願い

"take a sad song, and make it better..."

Nonetheless, the joy is in the little things: savoring a bowl of kookee yongtaufoo, rooting on as the elderly couple ran and caught the bus,

"Then you can start to make it better...."

knowing that perhaps this would not last forever adds solace into the potpurri of gamut-emotion.

"And any time you feel the pain, hey, Jude, refrain, don't carry the world upon your shoulders...."

and so i shall wait

"Remember to let her into your heart, then you can start to make it better... na na na na na na na.... hey jude"
