Eventful & introspective weekend

Roundup for the weekend: Difficult smses :: Beauty & the Beast :: Lipstick Jungle eps. 1. 2. 3 :: Pondering over long Annual Review w Head :: Langurous Sunday :: Fairmont Singapore Mooncakes :: ABBA Mania!!! (Thanks Keppel Nights!) :: Pondok Jawa Timur :: Tricked into eating Marriott's DURIAN mooncake.. Argh! :: A&W Sparkling Vanilla Cream Soda :: The Salty Caramel debate. :: Cheering Spore on for the Olympics ::

Yes yes, am into my Disney phase these days. BFF C and myself are appalled at how things we do and talk about get picked up by the local papers, today's article on salty caramel (see yest's blog post on Canele's Cafe Caramel) and the countless Urban food recommendations. Grrrr. Anyways, ABBA mania - I'm finally going!! And also Avenue Q in Oct, think I'm a happy gal. :) Gotta brush up on my ABBA songs!

Was inspired to post a song today after reading S's blog. Decided on this one from the ending of the first episode of Lipstick Jungle, think the lyrics are pretty meaningful, and I think this will help me to move along when the going gets tougher in the near future. I totally need strength for what's to come. Was moved to tears when I heard this and thought about what the Head told me during my annual review on Fri.




Always On Your Side - Sheryl Crow

My yesterdays are all boxed up and neatly put away
But every now and then you come to mind
Cause you were always waiting to be picked to play the game
But when your name was called, you found a place to hide
When you knew that I was always on your side

Well everything was easy then, so sweet and innocent
But your demons and your angels reappeared
Leavin' all the traces of the man you thought you'd be
Leavin' me with no place left to go from here
Leavin' me so many questions all these years

But is there someplace far away, someplace where all is clear
Easy to start over with the ones you hold so dear
Or are you left to wonder, all alone, eternally
This isn't how it's really meant to be
No it isn't how it's really meant to be

Well they say that love is in the air, but never is it clear,
How to pull it close and make it stay
Butterflies are free to fly, and so they fly away
And I'm left to carry on and wonder why
Even through it all, I'm always on your side

But is there someplace far away, someplace where all is clear
Easy to start over with the ones you hold so dear
Or are we left to wonder, all alone, eternally
But is this how it's really meant to be
No is it how it's really meant to be

Well if they say that love is in the air, never is it clear
How to pull it close and make it stay
If butterflies are free to fly, why do they fly away
Leavin' me to carry on and wonder why
Was it you that kept me wondering through this life
When you know that I was always on your side
