guo wan zheng ge xia tian
After the whole summer,
you shang bing mei you hao yi dian
my sadness still did not improve.
kai che xing chi zai gong lu wu ji wu bian
Driving my car on the vast, boundless roads,
you li kai zi ji de gan jue
I feel that I'm getting out of touch with myself.
chang bu wan yi shou ge
The song that I could not finish singing,
pi juan hai sheng xia hei yan quan
Left me so tired that there are rings around my eyes.
gan qing de shi jie shang hai zai suo nan mian
It is inevitable to get hurt in the realm of love,
huang hun zai mei zhong yao hei ye
No matter how beautiful the dusk is, the dark night must follow.
yi ran ji de cong ni kou zhong shuo chu zai jian jian jue ru tie
I recall that you said, "Goodbye" with a tone of steel,
hun an zhong you zhong lie ri zhuo shen de cuo gan
I had a delusion of being burnt by the sun in the darkening dusk.
huang hun de di ping xian
The horizon at dusk,
hua chu yi ju gao bie
Drew out your line of, "Farewell."
ai qing jing ru yong ye
Love plunges into eternal night.
yi ran ji de cong ni yan zhong hua luo de lei shang xin yu jue
I still remember the tears falling from your desolated eyes.
hun luan zhong you zhong re lei shao shang de cuo gan
In the confusion, there is an illusion of being burnt by the hot tears.
huang hun de di ping xian
The horizon at dusk,
ge duan xing fu xi yue
Severed happiness and joy.
xiang ai yi jing hui mie
Love has already been destroyed.

2004: Buy her roses at her school gathering. Did not have the guts to hand it to her personally. Must try harder next time. Smiled at her when we met. She was in her green uniform that time. We were barely together for 3 weeks. That time it was ICQ if I’m not mistaken.
2005: Gave her chocolates. Had a good time out at some shopping mall in Penang. You were driving cause I did not have my driver's license yet. Must do something more next year. I still remember how you always wanted me to hold your hands. I'm sorry it took so long.
2006: First valentines without you. Found myself driving along an endless road into Mara Banting, taking a friend to see her boyfriend... All I could do was send a text message and give her a short call. Looking into the mirror of my car, I see a place so unfamiliar. I still have a picture of my lonely reflection. So far away, 500km of road to get to you.
2007: Celebrated valentines with Fidaus’s Birthday. There was a huge board at Sunway College where lovers posted up dedications on a big heart. I guess interstate distance is not such a problem anymore. I remember sending a card or a wish or something to you. Must be in my diary or in the pile of letters I keep behind my bed.
2008: First valentines in England… Where the hell am I? Continents and Oceans between us… very few familiar faces. What to do? Drown in solace and send a card along with an e mail. The page with February 14th is left with no signs of love.. no signs of you. Wonder how I got so caught up in my other things…
2009: 2nd Valentines in England… On my bed, typing this post. You are in Genting Highlands enjoying yourself. No flowers… no chocolates… no hugs… no kisses…not even a little respite for that thing beating in my chest. Ah well, I hope she does receive my letter in due time.
See? So, to all you single people out there, rejoice, life is not so bad… Peace be with you..
Excerpts from our creative MSN conversation:
#stands up and holds out the flowers and the chocolates, staring into your pretty eyes laced with the mascara you just bought#

ok. *lifts u up and gives u a peck on the cheek, pulls ur ear and says "u dare not to make me ur valentine and SEE"*

Sangria means "bloody" in Spanish and Portuguese and it is a drink commonly served in countries with Spanish and Portuguese influence. It’s actually a concoction of meant to tingle the senses, a fruit cocktail mixed with red wine and soda. Alternatively, “sangria Blanca” is its name when white wine is used. I find white wine tastier than red wine, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.
Here’s some simple steps to make a glorious jug of sangria:
Mixed Fruits (your choice and your budget!)
>A serving jug
>Soda (for the fizzy refreshment)
>White/ Red wine (for the slow kick after the fizz)
>Fruit juice (Orange, Apple etc)
>Ice cubes (or chill your white wine and fruits, red wine usually goes better at room temp)
1. Chop up some of your favourite fruits into small pieces or get cocktail mixes in cans from the shop. Oranges, apples, grapes, peaches, apricots, berries, pineapples mangoes, kiwi are some of the fruits I’ve tried and they all go well.
2. Get a serving jug and fill it halfway with the mixed fruits.
3. Pour in 2 parts wine, 1 part soda and 1 part fruit juice
4. Stir well with a lil ice and enjoy!
2. Yusheng , yee sang or yuu sahng (simplified Chinese: 鱼生; pinyin: yúshēng) is a Chaozhou-style raw fish salad. It usually consists of strips of raw fish (most commonly salmon), mixed with shredded vegetables and a variety of sauces and condiments, among other ingredients. Yusheng literally means "raw fish" but since "fish (鱼)" is commonly conflated with its homophone "abundance (余)", Yúshēng (鱼生) is interpreted as a homophone for Yúshēng (余升) meaning an increase in abundance. Therefore, yusheng is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor.
You will need:
For the main dish:
Raw fish (smoked salmon trimmings)
Capsicums (3 different colours of pepper)
Peanuts (crushed and browned on a dry pan)
For the plum sauce:
Plum sauce (available in stores)
Sesame seeds(browned on a dry pan)
1. Grate all the vegetables in to separate piles.
2. Place the salmon trimmings and arrange as creatively as possible on a large platter and sprinkle generously the peanuts.
3. For the sauce, in a bowl, mix well half a cup of plum sauce with 1 table spoon of honey. Squeeze in some lemon juice to taste and add a table spoon of sesame seeds.
4. Usually we have five spice powder in red packets.
To serve, pour the sauce on the yee sang and stir!

All the while, there were various performances ongoing to entertain like the traditional dances, sword fighting, thai kick boxing, modern dances and musical plays. Interwoven into the night was a virtual tour of modern day Siam, from north to south, east to west, the beaches on Phuket to the vibrance of Bangkok, the land of the free, (thai means free) was promoted by the thai tourism ministry. It was amozing how much the thai government and organisations supported the event through various donations to make the night a success.
However, the most impressive part of the night was about the King of thailand, his highness, Bhumibol Adulyadej. At the beginning of the event, guests stood up to pay respect to his highness and for a good reason. It turns out the king was indeed the poeple's hero. He was a composer, a photographer, took part in sports, writer, samaritan, rainmaker etc.. He was the kind of King who did many things in his past times and many things for the people. For example, project royal rain was a cloud seeding proejct overlooked by his majesty.
I was seated with my Chem Eng Friends that night, most of them from China, including Derek, Cherri, Hung, Elaine, Ruien, Ren Zhe, Felicia, Pong(sathorn, Toey- the guy who sold me the ticket, i hope i spell your name right!) and Narisa. Had a good night and after that, we made our way home! so Siam Ar...
