Caught the movie yesterday with an ex-student and it was… bittersweet. I thought it would be one of those teenage love story shit, but it turned out… not quite that.

Two drifters, off to see the world
There’s such a lot of world to see
We’re after that same rainbow’s end, waitin’ ’round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me

– Audrey Hepburn, Moon River

Every night, his daddy sings him this song to lull him to sleep, and together with other songs such as “Blue Moon” he forms the “moon medley”.


In One Of Those Melancholic Moods

Went for a course today and met with a lot of old friends, many of whom I’ve not seen since we parted ways about 3 years ago.

And there was, you.

An unexpected sight, honestly.

You, looked the same.

We, didn’t talk at all. Except “hi”.

No goodbyes.

I guess that can only be good.

On a very random note, I’m suddenly feeling anxious about meeting a student’s father discussing his daughter’s grades (which are honestly, not that bad, but can be better of course). I wonder why the sudden anxiety pangs.

Hubs surprised me by bringing to catch The Lion King at Marina Bay Sands!

Well, we all know the plot and the songs and stuff , but I wasn’t too particularly overwhelmed by the singing though – somehow the actors’ singing were a little off that night. Nonetheless, I was really touched when the animals appeared – the costumes were so intricate and every detail was taken into consideration. The stage seemed a little too small though – when all the animals were up there it looked a little too cramped. There are many good reviews on the musical, and I think it’s worthwhile to catch it. 🙂

On 1 December 2010, we made our way to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, the icon of New York City. It was POURING cats and dogs when we set off, but we were determined to visit Liberty Island.

A gloomy day to visit Liberty

Listening to 987fm in the staff room while marking test papers was quite shiok. I feel like a teenager all over again.

When the lights go out
We’ll be safe and sound
We’ll take control of the world
Like it’s all we have to hold on to
And we’ll be a dream
