I Thank My God (Every Time I Remember You) [Original]

Been a long time since I posted, thought boxing day would be a good day... XD

Anyways, just went to a Christmas party on Christmas day, met a few new friends along with getting to know my not-so-new-but-still-quite-new friends better...

This song is dedicated to you all.. to Spruce, Gen, Brian, Aaron, Chewie, Jasmine, Jenny, Serina, JJ (both of you, i know 2 JJs) and all the others I hung out with but forgot your names... pardon my voice, there's a reason why i only sing backup vocals.. XD

Have a great boxing day, and a happy new year! :D



It's a rainy boxing day after Christmas.
The tree stands unadorned; the festive cheer is gone.
But the friends I've made this Christmas day,
I'll cherish with all my heart,
As the new year beckons on this boxing day.

Love one another as the Lord has loved us all.
Pray for each other, as through trials we must go.
Never give up meeting together, encourage one another.
And I thank my God every time I remember you

After Reservist....

Just finished my first low key ICT, quite tired... hahaz... posted back to Signals platoon, basically everyone's damn f***ed up.. at least the officers in the platoon were dignified.

Anyway, we had quite alot of free time in camp, so i did a little bit of songwriting... loosely speaking, this is my first original full song, with lyrics, and yes, i'm singing (quite badly) in here.. I'm dedicating this song to someone who means alot to me, who's always willing to listen to me rant over the phone.. It's kinda both a "thank you" and "this is how it is" song, so hope u won't feel offended, k?

Just a Friend


Another cloud here drifts across the summer sky
Another day has passed me by
Another moment spent in wistful dreaming
Of your hand in mine

Words flowed easily between us
You shared your woes, your dreams, your trust
You made me wanna be a better person; slowly I
Began to fall for you

The day I planned to tell how I truely felt for you
You asked to share a secret that then nobody knew
My heart then sank as you, not knowing how I felt
Told me you had a crush - on someone else

Oh, the pain of watching someone else take you for granted
Pales in the knowledge that I'm in a different world from you
But I'd rather stay the friend than risk the love and spoil the chance of knowing you
I'll be the friend.

As a friend i'm bound to sit beside and listen
As one who loves you, I didn't want to share
But as one who's been with you I know i'm way out of your league
I know my place, I will not stray

Meanwhile, I just finished watching the table tennis prize presentation ceremony where Singapore got world champion (WOOT!!!). I was a little disappointed at the playing of Singapore's national anthem though, I personally felt they should have played the one we all hear on National Day, the grander, fuller, and more awe-inspiring version.

Anyway, this is my guitar version of it, I hope i'm not breaking any rules here, I've read them... XD I think i'm the first one here who uploaded an acoustic version of the Singapore National Anthem, was wondering whether I really beat the rest to it, or there's some rule against it,....

Majulah Singapura (Singapore National Anthem)

Mari kita rakyat Singapura
Sama-sama menuju bahagia
Cita-cita kita yang mulia
Berjaya Singapura
Marilah kita bersatu
Dengan semangat yang baru
Semua kita berseru
Majulah Singapura
Majulah Singapura
Marilah kita bersatu
Dengan semangat yang baru
Semua kita berseru
Majulah Singapura
Majulah Singapura

How to train your Dragon - Soundtracks

Watched the movie, loved every moment of it XD Meanwhile, here's my interpretation of 2 of the pieces - Test Drive (where Hiccup test drives the dragon) and Romantic Fight (Flight)

Romantic Fight

There is a higher throne
Than all this world has known,
Where faithful ones from ev'ry tongue
Will one day come.
Before the Son we'll stand,
Made faultless through the Lamb;
Believing hearts find promised grace—
Salvation comes.

Hear heaven's voices sing;
Their thund'rous anthem rings
Through em'rald courts and sapphire skies.
Their praises rise.
All glory, wisdom, pow'r,
Strength, thanks, and honor are
To God our King, who reigns on high

And there we'll find our home,
Our life before the throne;
We'll honor Him in perfect song
Where we belong.
He'll wipe each tear-stained eye
As thirst and hunger die.
The Lamb becomes our Shepherd King;
We'll reign with Him.

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Somehow, I had thought shedding away all the things that I was clinging on to (but was clearly poisoning my life) would be painful, and drawn-out.

Surprisingly, everything turned out quite well. Even though I have far lesser "friends" now, I dare say I wholeheartedly trust the people I still mingle with.

It still gets lonely sometimes...... :(

Sometimes I wonder why people talk to me. I'm not good-looking, self-absorbed, cannot take jokes, easily provoked... sometimes I don't even feel like talking. Spare these good people from wasting their time on me...

Maybe someday I'll find a rainbow. Maybe.
