the minnow & the trout – a fine frenzy
it’s 10am, pouring and im not in bed. its totally weird for me. i’d be very much happier in slumber dreaming of cloudless skies and daisies. unfortunately i have to wake up extra early to get my video review for Media in America done. i was too pissed off and confused last night to do anything. oh well. i’m quite awake and can’t fall back to sleep cuz class is in an hour! argh.
sunday was pretty nice. it was one of those sundays that u wished never ended. first up was zouk flea with carina, joy and dawn. sunday brunch at toast was lovely! i don’t think i’ll ever get sick of the sandwiches and salads there.
zouk flea was packed as hell as usual. somehow everyone seemed to be there. and the crowd’s changed quite a bit. it was much better in the past, without all the online shops selling replicas from bangkok at astounding prices. there are so many nicer clothes from bangkok, i don’t get why every other shop here sells the same pieces from there. its as if they all go to platinum mall and just mass order without looking. its quite a pity. and these often caters to a different crowd which explains the change. it used to be classy, quirky vintage finds, now it sees a tad bit tacky. nonetheless, the ground level had some of the better stuff. oh yes, i hate how rude some people are. is it that difficult to just say “excuse me?”. Singapore really could do with the revitalizing of its courtesy campaign. so much for a gracious society.
it was pretty fun digging through the piles of vintage finds. i managed to get a white maxi dress, and a handmade notebook with brown paper! im a sucker for brown papers! oh well, i was quite sad i found out the dress had a stain. i knew it was weird it being so cheap! im still trying to get it out.
happy happy happy after all the shopping!
it was off to ann siang for a bit then to the airport to get some studying done before sending jon off. i finally made it to T3! but i didnt get to see much of it. damn. just the basement levels. its exciting checking out a new place. all the anticipation! alright im pretty much easily amused.
much later after we hung out at a special spot at east coast. i think it was the jetty or some sort. i loved it. just standing there facing the sea, wind in the face and no one else near by. i could stand there alone forever. i’ve always had a thing with the sea and beaches. it totally calms me down and it feels completely liberating. its pretty much unexplainable.
shining waters and silent waves
serenity, seclusion, liberation
i could stand alone all night
let the current wash everything away
for once it felt free
somehow everything including you just faded away
it was just the stars, the wind, the sea and i
just letting everything else pass me by
