Yet another weekend goes by

Saturday U know u're seriously getting older when 1) u start using the phrases "good old days" and "想当年". 2) u start receiving wedding and baby shower invitations from friends of about the same age. 3) u get the feeling no new song / tv show / movie compares to those that u grew up with.

met up with a group of friends at a pretty cool chill-out place called liquid kitchen (along thomson road, just beside long house and a petrol station). heard from an old sec sch good friend about how some other gals from our batch are doing. some are married, some even have kids...and some others have become doctors, reporters, career women, some moved overseas to pursue their dreams...and i just thought to myself "My, my...how things have changed..." we used to all be school girls in the same school uniform attending the same classes, and now, our lives are so different. hearing about them somehow brought back memories of those carefree days when life was much simpler and being happy was so much easier...ah...the good old days...there! evidence of ageing.

Sunday snow wolf lake didn't live up to my expectations. honestly. not that it sucked...in fact everything was fantastic...the songs, the music, the live band, the stage, lighting, special effects, and of course the entire cast and their singing (love evonne hsu's voice...and jacky cheung was, as usual, heavenly)...but the one thing that held everything together was an utter disappointment: the story. come on...i'm sure the professionals who conceptualized the musical can do better than that? if the problem was just some technical fault or perhaps a lacklustre performance from a cast member, it would've been easier to ignore and forgive, but the story! sigh. i just felt kinda sad at the end...not just for the audience who paid for a supposedly critically acclaimed and much anticipated musical, but also for the entire cast and crew who've put in so much effort for the show but failed to convince and connect, simply bcoz of a weak plot. and reallie, i'm quite surprised that no one bothered to improve on it all these years...

Monday yeah. that's today. i'm supposed to be tidying up my room. almost done (i wish). it's now in a mess so i better get back to it...

I watched Saturday's performance. I think our Indoor Stadium's sound system may have problems. I have to agree that Jacky & Evonne gave great performances.

hey pf! saw your blog on the newpaper today so decided to take a look.

reading your entry on the good old days certainly bring up sweet memories of the times in sch. come to think of it, it's been 6 yrs since we left sch, and it is indeed quite amazing to see how the lives of our friends have taken on such diverse paths (who would imagine you being a DJ when we were in jc? heh) anyway, all the best in all that you do, n i'll be checking this blog regularly! =)
