My Blues

Oh sweet lord, is making me sick your way getting me in the mood for Christmas? Cause it ain't working, first food poisoning, then the world's worst head-splitting-feel-like-10 10 ton-elephants-sitting-on-my-head hangover headache I never thought was possible. Now a freaking viral infection. Gosh a sore throat, I can't even speak. Yeah huh, Me not being able to speak, I guess this is what it will be like when hell freezes over. =)

Man..being sick sure makes me moody and depressed. Its the middle of December now, holidays are gonna end soon and again I have that familiar I haven't accomplish anything feeling once more. I guess we all feel our life is gonna start or flourish at some point but we have to step out of our shells and our own restraints and insecurities in order to make that happen. Things don't just fall into place in life. If you feel something is meant to be, then you gotta fight for it and never an opportunity pass you by for some of them only come about once in a lifetime. I know this and I know the truth in this. But yet I still don't have the courage to take my first step. I know the time is now. The moment is now.

Sleep my little babby-oh
Sleep until you waken
When you wake you'll see the world
If I'm not mistaken
Kiss a lover
Dance a measure
Find your name
And buried treasure
Face your life
Its pain, its pleasure
Leave no path untaken.
There is no secret to life. There is only one way. Live it. I know something is lacking and to find it, probably would be find what I've always been looking for.

My Cup of Coffee

Ben's lessons in life...
  • Nobody wants to go into an elevator and be the one who sets of the beeper. You know, the one that tells you the elevator is too heavy or you're too fat. Either way. Because you see when you step into the elevator and the beeper goes off, there is somehow an added stillness and silence to the elevator. An awkward one. And for once, everybody in a place regardless of race, religion, belief or culture are thinking of the same thing and probably in unison too. They may be innocently staring at the elevator floor but you know they're thinking "Get out fat ass!". That why everytime i enter a crowded elevator, I pray.
  • When you have food poisoning, never buy hot coffee from a vending machine because god knows how long that stuff has been in there.
  • When you buy hot coffee, do keep in mind that the cup might actually be hot so you won't look like a fool in front of the people waiting in front of the elevator.
  • When you get back in the elevator, remember that in hospitals there are two sets of buttons, one which is lower for people in wheelchairs so you would not have to bend down to look at the number on the buttons and then realise 10 seconds later that you look like a fool in front of the same people who were waiting in front of the elevator.
  • Remember that you can't always look like an idiot, your life is not a comedy and you can't always be the punchline.

All that from getting a cup of coffee with cream. Amazing isn't it?

DB: With cream? Didn't you have a dream involving whipped cream last night? *chuckles* Haha it was..

Ben : Shaaad up!!

On a much lighter note, Whose Line Is It Anyway? is an awesome show. Its amazing the type impromptu crap they can come up with. Never seen a bad episode. Heres one I remember from the show.

"Going through puberty was a very difficult time for me, Cause it seems like everything around me excited me; So listen to me now cause this is not one of my rants, when you go through puberty do not wear sweat pants!" - Colin Mochrie

Guys will understand. =)

I also watched "Wanted". Awesome show. Ridiculous. But still awesome. How is it possible for you to bend a bullet! Woa..reminds me of my stupid nickname..Bend-your-dict=.= . Anyhuu, I wish I was meant for something bigger like in the movie, fulfill a destiny or what not. Life is so mundane, so uninteresting, so monotonous...damn!


In an old chinese temple in a land far far away...

Sifu: Are you ready young master Ben? Ready to fulfill the prophecy written in stone?

Ben : Yes master, I have never been more ready.

Sifu: Ready to fulfill your destiny as the world's biggest idiot?

Ben: What??!!

*Tyre screeches*

Hmmm...something went wrong in that fantasy.

Starts fantasizing again...

In a room full of immortals dressed smartly in tuxes...

Sifu: My son, are you the one?

Ben (excited): I could be the one.

Sifu: Yes you are. You are the most the insignificant a$$hole of the 21st century.

*Tyres screech again*

Damn... that line was from "Wanted".. aw man....

My Ice Cream Day

AB : Oh look who decided to blog again..
DB : After months of abandoning us...
AB : For god knows what reason...
DB : And now he shows up..
AB : Gay too! Just listen to the song he is listening to.

*Doktor Kosmos sings : Holiday! Holiday! Its the best day! An ice cream day! I am only happy when I have!

Ben : Oh sure this is gay! Not as gay as finishing each other's sentences..
AB & DB : What the hell! Whatever man.
Ben : Not as gay as saying the same thing together too for that matter!
AB & DB : What the..oh just shut up and blog!

Ah sweet sweet december! Ok that was a tad gay-ish sounding..*makes a mental note: damn it man..stop grappling with own sexuality =.=* Ah holidays away from the stress of school, its kinda nice to just stay at home and not worry about a single thing. Peachy actually!

DB : Peachy? Really dude? You have "peachy" sitting on the tip of your tongue?

Ok, fine, sweet.

AB : Oh sweet to replace peachy. Yeah thats much better.

Alright alright! It has been nice. Lets see highlights of this holidays.

  • Went canoeing last week. It was kinda fun. Fun until an idiot..ok hold up lets take a second to define idiot shall we? Idiot : An individual who takes a single canoe even when he doesn't know how to paddle and paddles real quick to the middle of the sea to capsize or an individual who is terrified of ghost and decides to watch Mirrors. Alone. =.=. Anyhuu, I had to wait a full 5 minutes or so before someone saw me. And Lay Qi who saw me was nice enough to paddle up to me to "save" me by bumping her canoe against my bobbling head in the middle of the sea. Don't worry people! Ben will live! I am invincible and nothing can scare me..*cockroach runs past..Ben yelps and hops onto his chair*.
  • Watched dvd at certain FT's house yesterday with Kok Oon and my sister, Alissa Lee Zheng Ying. XD. Disturbia was awesome and suspense-filled. And why oh why can't I ever get a hot neighbour. WHY???? Life is not fair. I wanna be Shia La-whatever, his last name is too complicated..guess if I had to go by pronounciation I would say Shia LaBoof. I mean come on, Megan Fox *takes a moment to daydream..weee...* and now this girl in Disturbia. Life is not fair!!

Anyway its the 3rd week now, gosh time flies!! I really wanna enjoy this holiday you know, make it memorable and worthwhile. But I just don't know how to get there.

My Reason To Cling

" Tree Hill is just a place somewhere in the world. Maybe it's a lot like your world, maybe it's nothing like it. But if you look closer, you might see someone like you. Someone trying to find their way. Someone trying to find their place. Someone trying to find their self. Sometimes it seems like you are the only one in the world who's struggling, who's frustrated, or unsatisfied, or barely getting by. But that feeling's a lie. And if you just hold on, just find the courage to face it all for another day, someone or something will find you and make it all okay. Because we all need a little help sometimes. Someone to help us hear the music in the world, to remind us that it won't always be this way. That someone is out there. And that someone will find you." - Lucas Eugene Scott

My Silent Corridor ( A post for me)

(Warning : This is a long boring post I wrote for me. No lame jokes this time. So if you got other things to do right now, I suggest you skip this.)

Since I started this blog, it has always been my happy place. The place I came to dump all my crap, sarcastic quotes and ideas. I have always tried to keep it that way, I have never tried chronicled any of my feelings and thoughts because like I said, this was my happy place and my place of Zen. But lately things have gotten so crappy and so out of hand, something more than an 18 year old should deal with. I'm justly plainly overwhelmed to the point of suffocation. So I figured maybe chronicling my thoughts would somehow help release the stress that is fast turning unbearable.

It was after table tennis. I just snucked out of the hall and to the corridor of a form 3 class nearby and sat there. It was nice, overlooking the plants, the sun beating down on it and the bell erected there in the middle. I was alone and totally alone, which was nice as it allowed me to be alone with my thoughts and just try to make plain sense of what I have been going through. A nice quiet mental monologue.

I began to think how I got to where I am today, how things were so different during the more carefree days. Things used to be simple back then, come to school and just plainly enjoy talking and laughing with my friends. And it was nice because it was easy. I never knew that it was noticeable and visible until a friend asked me why am I so moody lately? School used to my place to escape everything, it was like going to sleep at night and for awhile, your dreams feel real and there are no worries or troubles that plague you. Just your dreams. That was what it was like spending time with my friends but I can't even do that lately. Sure, I put on a charade and that big 100 watt smile but inside I don't feel anything anymore...somehow. Joking was my thing and I'd tell my friends stupid stuff, things I have heard and when they laughed, it made me happy too. But now whenever I tell a joke or try to, I get this strange, hollow feeling on the inside that I can't even begin to fathom. Even when people are laughing because of it. Laughing along used to be fun, now its just so I don't feel weird .Laughter is nothing more than a hollow bray. Even the comedies, my stress killer, that which makes me happy for a short while don't seem to have any bearings anymore. And if I lose school and my comedies, I honestly don't know what I have left.

Sometimes when I talk to my good friends, especially the dong from australia, I feel like the old me again. Suddenly a wave of quiet confidence and reassurance comes across me. But these moments are fleeting. And then they are just gone. You know something is screwed up when you are stuck to trying to find who you were and just try to be that person again. When I say I need a vacation, I mean it. Away from everything, just me in a place where nobody knows me and maybe somehow that person might come back again. All happy, nice, sarcastic and maybe funny.

Somewhere along the line, something went wrong. I just don't know what. Something triggered all the things that bother me that I have been trying to hide. I tell myself I have to be strong for the sake of those closest to me, but theres comes a point where a man, actually a boy can't take it anymore. The burden becomes overwhelming and he breaks down and nothing else matters anymore. I can only do this much to handle it before it all comes crashing down.

I guess I just gotta figure stuff out. This corridor monologue was nice. It allowed me to just think and try to talk some sense into myself. It was nice. Peaceful and serene. For awhile. I need to find a place in school where I can just escape and be alone. The stairs of the second floor that I go to during free periods obviously don't work. I sat at the corridor for almost half an hour I guess before the sounds of the scraping and folding tables reminded me that I had to get back to the hall. Well, I guess right now, I just gotta find one thing. The one thing I have lost while getting caught up in all this. The one that is the most important to me. Who was I before all this? How was I like before all this? I just don't wanna lose my friends because of the person I'm becoming as I know, just as much as I feel like I'm falling apart this time, I can't keep up the everyday happy facade up for long. Pretty soon I might be loner. Or maybe I'm already becoming one what with my escapes.
