In outerspace, Nabby‘s a ADHD starfish, Erfen’s a pure geek robot and I’m a failed colour-ninja.
Ah, Listerine days, you were fun.

In 2009, there was 1. In 2010, there were 3. How I wish there was a 300% increase every year! So that I could look seriously into organising an elves union and rearing reindeers. Kind of thrilling, all those pointy hats and countless hot-chocolate mugs one can demand.
We had it at Bho & Melly ‘s, thus the title*. Their place is always lovely to visit and is always spotless. My mother would like them very, very much.

Secret santa was Nabs which meant: HAPPY TIMES! Everything she got for me was freakily spot-on. Like she rented a room inside my mind where my wants reside too. Stay there as long as you want, Nabs.

Keith Douglas’s poem strangely makes me wonder about eulogies. And whether being able to sum up somebody’s life in several sentences is a good or bad thing. Does it mean they were consistent in their values/the way they led their lives, or were they too boring?
The thought of distilling anybody’s life down to a paragraph breaks me out in cold sweat. I was always quite terrible at the 100-word summary in secondary school comprehensions anyway. Hmm. I suppose I shouldn’t prepare my own eulogy in that case. My (currently non-existent, and possibly improbable) grandchildren might never finish reading it out. It’d be the mid-21st century version of “The Never-Ending Story“.
(I wonder if they’d be interested in the fact I reaaaallllly liked bagels+cream cheese for breakfast. And brunch. And tea.)
(Sadly but mostly likely, no huh?)
Okay. Reason #329981 on the WHY YOU NEED GOOD FAMILY + FRIENDS list : To write a meaningful, honest, funny, refreshing, but short eulogy on the (ave.) 80 years that you lived.
Ahhhh, no pressure at all.
As for the photos, Squid, Nabs and I found a lonely bench at ACM after we went to the loo, and we decided to cheer it up. So we cheered the bench, and the bench cheered us.

The troops rallied on 6th June, and it was a good, fine day at the esplanade doing KYTV:P.O.P nonsense. Our singing more or less sucked, our dancing – some, at least – drew inspiration from the Great Singapore Workout (so you can imagine how that went), but the making of it was INCREDIBLY fun.
It was a ball of a time prancing around in weird-ass costumes and lip-syncing to the recording. I laughed so hard during the whole process I think I developed abs.
How it worked:
- Choose your POPstar name
- Pick the original song for your solo/duet/group: Angry Song, Love Duet, Obscure Song, Happy Song…
- Learn your song via the separate tellies & headphones set up for each song (we never really made it..heh)
- Record your song in the studio.
- Head over to the makeup/dress up station to muck around with the nice people
- Wait for your turn to shoot your MTV against a green screen
- Say “thank you”!
- Sober up over the next few days and cringe over your video when it appears
So thanks to shal, nab, erfen, jonny, chris g, juliane, su & jie for coming down.. not to mention the bishy-bashy and bowling session that happened later. Oh yes, and the NOBODY by wonder girls impromptu cover we did.
(L-R) erfen, me, shal, jonny, nab, juliane
