Saturday Night Out with the HH Babes

On the most recent Saturday, I met up with some fellow hh babes. We spent the bulk of our night queueing outside New York New York. Inititally I thought it was a meet up for the usual 4 of us. However, a few other babes joined us and it was a great time catching up with one another.

I was already like 45minutes late (due to work!) but when I reached, they were like at the end of the queue. Apparently alot of people behind them kept walking away. We were so bored that we spent our time asking qian4 bian3 wen4 da2 ti2. It turned out that em and me are the LAMEST LAMERS around. No wonder we worked so well together as a team last time.

em and wy thinking of the soultion to which question was it?


After more than an hours's wait, we got ourselves great seats. Luckily our number was not any bigger or we would have to wait even longer for a huge table. The table was just right, cosy enough. No photos of food as we shared all the dishes. Because our table was so small, our food came in ala carte buffet style. Hehe... We practically dig in, finish up the dish and wait for the next dish to be served.

We have 3 August babies in this group: wy, py & hs!

It was great meeting with you gals. Although I was quite sleepy and not in my usual siao mode but I felt I was more opened, relaxed and siao with you gals as compared to my colleagues in my current co. Not that they aren't nice, they are. Just that I haven't revealed my true colours yet. Hehe...

Oh and ts, I know you don't read my blog but welcome to the Alumni club in a few weeks time. ;P

Somewhere Only We Know
By Keane

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

Oh simple thing where have you gone
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing where have you gone
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go
Somewhere only we know?

[break]

This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go
So why don't we go

This could be the end of everything

Somewhere only we know?



I liked this song when I heard it on radio 1 or 2 years back and soon forgot about it. When they played it as the trailer song for The Lake House, I fell in love with it. I watched the show, expecting the song to be played any minute. I sat till the end credits, thinking they would play it. But no. I didn't know what's the title nor who sang it. I asked my 2nd sis but she hasn't been watching movie for long and did not catch the trailer. However, once I hummed it, she walked to her PC, opened her music folder and played it.

I was ecstatic.

It was soon after that I realised scores of people have been searching for "that song on The Lake House trailer".

I hope to find a place like that too; somewhere only we know. =)
