artwork
i'm probably the worst photoshopper in the world, but here are some wallpapers i made. i'm not going to identify all the quotes, just google them, they're all from recent pop songs.


(roger federer, dubai 2007 celebrating a record 161 consecutive weeks as #1)
this one has nice colours. nothing else is particularly good here.


(eponine from the musical les miserables, the rue plumet scene where she takes marius to see cosette)
sorry i don't know who the actress is. quotes are from another musical "wicked", i think that song describes eponine's situation really well.


(maria sharapova, australian open 2008)
this took 5 minutes! one of my favourite ones ever cos the colour scheme is so pretty.


(justine henin, from her retirement press conference in may 2008)
this one sort of sucks. but i wanted to say something about the courage involved in making a decision like that.

there's a whole lot more but i can't find them on my comp right now so i guess i'll edit tomorrow.

Writer's Block: Grimm Question
What was your favorite fairy tale as a child?


The Ash Girl - Timberlake Wertenbaker's retelling of Cinderella.

Oh wow, thank you LJ! More specifically, thanks to those of you who named more obscure stories, I'm really enjoying reading them all. My favourite as a child would have to be The Snow Queen, but in my early teens I came across The Ash Girl and I loved it so much I had to buy a copy. I have a teen-dance-movie-style retelling of it all plotted out - I went a bit crazy and made a male protagonist, and an institution for a prince - and I'm working on something similar (but darker) for the Snow Queen at the moment.

But I think my favourite fairytale, in a few years' time, will be the one I'm in at the moment :)

Writer's Block: Strange Conversations
What's the best conversation you've ever had with a stranger—on a bus, in an elevator, at a cafe, etc.?


I guess it had to be in Christmas 2003 while in the queue for Andy Serkis's autograph... or maybe (though it wasn't a real conversation) the voicemail message I got that said she's had an accident and her brother didn't survive... I didn't recognise the voice so I ignored it and heard no more, but I always thought it'd make a great start to a novel, this traumatised girl phoning a stranger whom she thought was a long-lost friend and spilling her heart out...

In fact, I love the idea of chance meetings. Hence I'm refreshing the answer-page like mad, trying to get ideas for plotlines. Thanks so much LJ for asking this question.

Writer's Block: Seven Days
Which day of the week do you least look forward to? And which one do you most anticipate?


this reminds me, i always used to love thursday! remember senior choir? (and biology in the afternoon, or 4 hours with the 107 crew... good times!)

lately i just look forward to whichever day i have designated as my going-out day. so like the weekend of a 6-day week.

Writer's Block: No Foolin'
What's the best April Fool's joke you've seen today?


I always look forward to "creative news story day", but nothing's made me laugh so far :( maybe now that the Americans are up, someone will write a good hoax article...

Unexpectedly
For people in the know, this is related to the last post (made official today), but exaggerated and romanticised as usual. Probably not as good as my usual ones cos it's been a looooong time since I last wrote and I'm really out of practice.

All my life I've been chasing stars
Going after dreams that cannot be
It hurts so much when you try so hard
Can't help crying every time I don't succeed
Got used to hearing no after no
Was convinced nobody wanted me
Is this how my life's gonna go
Then came a day I thought I never would see

Suddenly I don't have to run no more
Out of the blue, you open the door
You take my hand and say, let's get out of this place
I can't move cos I'm in awe

I have never ever felt so happy
Till you caught me unexpectedly
Now my life's turning one-eighty
And I finally see what you mean to me
You set me free

Like a lake in the desert sand
Every day with you was so unreal
Had to blink, had to pinch my hand
I was stunned and afraid of how I feel
Such a contrast from all I've known
These light shoulders alien to me
Been so long since my sun last shone
But magically you gave it all back to me

Now I can forget what I'm looking for
Out of the blue, you open the door
You tell me with a sigh, it's time to dry your eyes
Drop your burden to the floor

I have never ever felt so happy
Till you caught me unexpectedly
Now my life's turning one-eighty
And I finally see what you mean to me
You set me free

How is this not a fantasy
How could this be really happening to me
I'm just an ordinary girl
Why would anyone give me their world

I have never ever felt so happy
Till you caught me unexpectedly
Now my life's turning one-eighty
And I finally see
You set me free

Writer's Block: Caution, Meet Wind
When was the last time you threw caution to the winds? And what were the consequences?

Feeling Bad
Wrote this in an hour one night while working on coursework. It seemed to fit Sunday's RG final, the way I knew that, no matter what I tried, I couldn't finish it. Let me stress again that it was written two months ago, so any resemblance to the final is coincedental.

Haven't cried like this for a long, long time
Haven't felt so bad in years
My nose is red, my eyes are stinging
From the constant drying of my tears
Wish I could go back to how it used to be
I had troubles then, but now they look so easy
Nothing I couldn't sort out in a day
Not like now, about to spend another night awake
I says I'll think of something tomorrow
But all my ideas have failed, turned out hollow
I keep thinking something's there, but when I look closer
It's just a dead end, over and over
And what progress I made falls apart
Every step is useless, takes me back to the start
I don't know how to carry on anymore
Can't bear the thought of another day like the one before
This problem that I can't fix, it's all over me,
I stare at it, forget to eat, it's driving me crazy
Someone tell me what I gotta do
Somebody save me cos I don't think I ever will
And then it'll be the end of me
Is that the way it's meant to be
I'm trapped in a dark deep well
Sitting, waiting for the knell
Remembering the happy days I had
When I didn't know the meaning of feeling bad

What happened
Started in late April 06, finished in Jan 07. A mixture of many different ideas, as usual

I used to be so strong
When I broke up with a boy, I'd move on
Forgot about him the next day
But with you I just don't feel that way
I try to drive you out my mind
Or think about how we fight all the time
But I can't get myself to hate you
You pull me back with every little thing you do

What happened to me
I'm not who I used to be
I barely recognise the girl I see in the mirror
What happened to me
I'm stuck in this same sad story
So desperate to end it differently
Where is the girl I used to know
I need her now to show me where to go

I only cared for myself
I learnt you can't give way to everyone else
No more missy super nice girl
Cos I gotta be ruthless with the world
Now all those walls have come loose
You're making me suddenly all confused
Why is my mind lost in so much doubt
Never before have all these tears been pouring out

What happened to me
I'm not who I used to be
I barely recognise the girl I see in the mirror
What happened to me
I'm stuck in this same sad story
So desperate to end it differently
Where is the girl I used to know
I need her now to show me where to go

What is it about you
You could do what none of them guys could do
Are we destined to be
The more I think the more I need next to me

What happened to me
I'm not who I used to be
I barely recognise the girl I see in the mirror
What happened to me
I'm stuck in this same sad story
So desperate to end it differently
Where is the girl I used to know
I need her now to show me where to go

Destiny
This is probably the worst song on the album (or lyrics collection, since I don't write music). Also the first one I wrote on this album, roundabout beginning of March 06.

Since I set my heart on this goal
Since I stepped out the door on that first day
From the moment I saw the road
I know it could happen no other way

As if someone wrote our story
And we're walking blindly through the parts
We're trapped in his slow motion movie
That's how it seems to my heart

Do you feel the power of destiny
Can you hear the voice calling you and me
I am drawn to you, no matter what I do
Baby I believe this is meant to be

Like comets on a collision course
We are hurtling towards the unstoppable
Like bullet trains on tracks that cross
Each moment brings us closer to the inevitable

As if someone wrote our story
Not a thing we do can change the end
We're trapped in his slow motion movie
The only question is when

Do you feel the power of destiny
Can you hear the voice calling you and me
I am drawn to you, no matter what I do
Baby I believe this is meant to be

I'm telling you
It's scripted in the stars
Set in stone since the start of the age
Though our meeting might seem far
Our paths are marked and cannot be changed
Do you feel the power of destiny
Can you hear the voice calling you and me
I am drawn to you, no matter what I do
Baby I believe this is meant to be
Baby I believe this is meant to be
