Quietdrive - Time After Time

This song has been playing in radio quite often lately. It is Quietdrive's cover of Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time". Originate from Minneapolis, Quietdrive is a band which genres are mainly pop punk and alternative rock (my fav!)

The album - When All That's Left Is You


The story behind the MV is pretty simple and ordinary- about a song which makes a guy think of the sweet old days with his ex-girlfriend. (I suppose the girl who's sleeping in his bed is his current gf.)

It proceeds with the guy walking on the street alone, listening to the iPod and singing the song as the song goes along. I personally think that the guy isn't that attractive but he certainly has a scent of British style which I quite like about.

Looking back at the sweet old days.. (the Asian gf is cute!)

See! Don't you think so? ;p

They even played piano together! Awh how sweet. (Imagine if I played piano - must be clumsy than ever (lol) cos it's been years since I last played piano lol)

Doing things that 2 person used to do together.. A way of reminiscing eh.

The lyrics of their cover are a bit different from the Cyndi Lauper's version. Just a short line though. Anyway, here's the original version of Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper, from her album "Twelve Deadly Cyns...and Then Some".

p/s: It's 3am in the morning and I'm sitting here studying for final exams while taking care of my grandpa(I'm gonna stay awake till 5am at least because that's the time my maid wakes up.)He hardly eat anything now so I have to give him some warm milo and fruit juices in between. It's not easy to see your loved ones to be suffered like this. I just hope that he won't be tortured anymore. :/

A big big wish!

A Big Big wish to....

*drum rolls*

Jasmyin!! My dearie housie!! ;))

Happy 21st birthday~!! Wish you will be pretty and happy and cheering and bubbling always!!

Current playlist

Current mood: Unstated.

This song has been repeating over and over again in my playlist. The rhythms and lyrics keep lingering and twirling with my mind as the time passing by.


I was all right for a while
I could smile for a while
But when I saw you last night
You held my hand so tight
When you stopped to say hello
And though you wished me well
You couldn't tell
That I'd been crying over you, crying over you
Then you said so long
and left me standing all alone
Alone and crying, crying, crying, crying
It's hard to understand
That the touch of your hand
Can start me crying

I thought that I was over you
But it's true, so true
I love you even more than I did before
But darling, what can I do?
You don't love me
And I'll always be crying over you, crying over you
Yes, now you're gone
And from this moment on
I'll be crying, crying, crying, crying
I'm crying, crying over you

A heart-warming song from Don McLean - Cryin'

Of daydreaming and rambling about anything

If you had seen the real Emily Lin, the words that you could probably think of for describing her would be - anything but ordinary, oh-it's-just-so-normal, or maybe geez-please-get-her-a-change. Well, if only I could think of any suitable word to describe it - I think I've got one now. Which is a BIG capital "D" or "B".


I know, I have always been showing up with a t-shirt and a jeans with a pair of sandal (or you might be seeing me substituting the jeans with a folded-jeans shorts pairing with a pair of flip-flops). Okay, I will dress up occasionally (which is really rare), putting up some feminine-like top (with a softer and lighter texture which is no good for me at all, cos I've put some weight on), but dressing in such a way just making me feeling duller than ever. Be it the casual look or the latter look.

So now I've started to daydreaming again - daydreaming about what should I be wearing on the next hour, going out for some drinks with couple of friends in a well-decorated and warmed ambiance bar.

Should I stop telling you that I should be studying now already? *final exam is just one week away!! Grrr..*
Just a short rambling about what is in my mind now.

I'm gonna say it's all about Topshop. Not that I'm a Topshop fanatic or because of London (please don't ask me why I like it, it's reasonless), but I was just browsing through their collection and found out that some interesting outfits that I'd LOVE to have.

First of all, I'd like to take off my red-framed glasses which I've been wearing for years and replace it with dark-browned contact lens instead. Despite having the same bob hair-cut, it would be interesting if I had a bangs to cover my forehead up.

And so the transformation has begun!

Firstly, I'd rather not being too dramatic so I would just replace my top with a designer t-shirt by Ann Sofie Back (featured under "The Boutique" of Topshop). What has drawn my eyes on it is the belt - it's being tied and sticked on the shirt and I think it has made the shirt more unique to a certain extent.


Then, I'd paired it with a double pocket bubble hem skirt (£28.00), also from Topshop. I personally think that the wool texture and a bit of fluffy cutting would cover up my growing hip quite well (or non?). What's your idea then?

Here comes the high square toed shoes. And I think it's KEWL alrite!


And a bag would finally finish the look. A cool vintage large stitch satchel which I have always been dreaming of.


Or this. A small cross body bag with buckle detail, 100% Polyurethane.


You might be saying and being sarcastic," Oh Em, this is so-not-you!"

Now, it might be the money matters for holding me up, and probably the opinions of what the people around think about me. Ya, I hate to say this, but sometimes it's something that I would mind about.

But of course, I will wear what I want to wear in future if only I could have the enough $$ to spend on.

Heh, I told you it's going to be a short rambling. :D *runs away*

Throw It All Away

Just finished watching Charlotte's Web. It's a nice movie with a cute, humble little pig in it, who named Wilbur. If you were wondering what friendship is all about, go watch this movie. =)

Well, the effect of the overdose chocolate is still on. It ain't feel good. :(

Been traveling everyday from home to campus all the way because I need to spend more time at home. Things haven't been easy but life still carries on. After staying upfor the whole night (I've been staying up throughout the night for like, few days already?), I finally done with the assignment, together with another group mate. It was tiring. But what to do? I've got no choice. And now, I need to re-do it because the tutor asked us so. Need to support our findings with more journal. Argh. What's with the Organizational Behavior. Did I pissed you off? So now you're taking the revenge on me, by throwing me more tasks to be done? No, obviously.

Bah. *humming Throw It All Away*

There's other stuff been happening lately. I sincerely hope my dear rommies will get over the problem she's facing now. And so does Jasmyin, my dear housemate. Get well soon~! :))

While I was doing some blog-hopping, I found Nicole Chocoa Heaven. Now I am all inspired by her guts for traveling over the globe, mostly by herself. Imagine that! I have always thinking about traveling to everywhere, enjoying the life at different places, and discovering new things. Oh well. I just need to do this! I need to do this. Em just gotta do thissss!!

Just grab your bag and off we go!! lol.

Wait. Of course not that easy anyway, money comes first *wink*. And whole lost of guts.

So, I've been busy doing some part-time jobs during the weekend - if I happened to get one. Been working as some Extra in some commercial shooting. You get quick money, but I warn you, it's not an easy job for sitting there the whole day, doing nothing but just wait and wait for the standby. Here's what I did while waiting for the shooting:
- sitting there and waiting for like few hours.
- listening to my iPod
- sleeping
- eating (the foods weren't that good. but I've got no choice lol.)
- sitting and waiting, still
- chatting with friends (thank God they were together with me!)
- looking at people (there's some hot chicks and hunks here and there lol.)
- and still - sleeping >.<

Well, IF I were fairer, prettier, hotter, slimmer and taller, I would have worked as a "Show Girl" in some roadshows or product-promoting events, wearing some tube top and mini skirts LOL.

Oh well. Too bad I don't!!! :((

*God knows why- simply because I don't own any of that characteristics lol*

If not, I would have had stacks of money in my pocket now, and off we go to travel around the world! Lalala.

Can't imagine I just wrote all these. Enough of the ranting. Going to bed now. Patient needs to get some rest. :D

Happy birthday to me.

I'm officially 21 years old now. *older*

Happy birthday, Em.

It's the worst birthday I've ever had. You see. Now it's 3.42 in the morning, and I'm still sitting here doing the f*ucking assignment, trying hard to open my half-dead eyes. This is so not cool. Not only that, I'm now feeling sick because of the excessive 'dose' of chocolate I ate just now. I am such a chocolate freak. Eh. As a result of that, of course I'm having sore throat now. Duh. I shouldn't have been eating so much chocolate. But what to do, it makes me feel SO good.

Oh well.

Missing in action and pondering over the truth of life.

Why can't anyone against the rules of nature? I just so HATE it now - for being helpless.

I wish my life can be shorten for 10 years or even more to keep my loved ones healthy always, not watching him in suffer for anything.

I'll be away from everything. Just for a while. Or even longer.

It's September! Woot.

Do I sound excited enough? Yea. I do. Not because of anything good has happened. It's because I am getting nervous and nervous. Tons of assignments and presentations need to be done. I feel like screwing up. Grandpa is feeling better now but he needs to do chemo after being observed for sometime. Hopefully everything goes well.

Anyway, we went to Pizza Hut to celebrate Kar Ling's 21st birthday on Wednesday. After bloating ourself with pizzas and stuff, they took out the cakes. Only then I knew it's not only for Kar Ling's celebration, but it's including Ivan and me! Oh well. Surprise surprise. :)) Thanks Teresa, Billy, Jasmyin, Lit Shiuan, Kar Ling, Laura and Ivan. =) Hmm. I wonder what will I do and where I will be on my 21st birthday? Okay, enough of rambling already.

Time to wish other September babies. *I have a memory of goldfish, so do remind me if I drop out you. :)*
Happy birthday in-advance to: Sabrina, My Dad, Yily, Ivan, Jasmyin, and PK!! =)

Pictures time.

-->> Laura, Lit Shiuan, me, Kar Ling, Ivan, Jasmyin, Teresa

Here's chocolate banana, blueberry cheese, high-fibre cheese, white choc, and marble cheese. =) The joy of sharing! [actually we couldn't finish up the whole cake so we decided to buy different flavor of them. We're smart, aren't we? :P]

Time to blow the candles! *Kar Ling, blow harder!! :D

Woot. Happy Kar Ling. With the bracelet given by us on her hand. =)
