EXAMS JUST ENDED!!HAHAH!! didnt think I did that well in extention maths though..sigh! Went out with Shirley and Yvonne and Kelley today. Felt kind of weird with Kelley there since she insisted on coming( and i felt like i was back in a girls school) but it turned out better than i expected:)

Grandma taught me a lot of lessons in life yesterday. I guess thats why she was the greatest teacher in her suburb back in China..haha! I guess life is just a path that everyone takes and it really depends on the person whether the path taken is satisfying or not. I have seriously finally realised the real meaning of the importance of studying(though it is a little late..haha but its either now or never)just hope that this feeling of wanting to do well lasts for the whole year because i really do not want to waste another year repeating again.It's demoralizing..sigh! Just went around randomly hopping from one blog to another and I realised how much people have moved on with their lives. I think that the past is really gone now and what lies ahead is a different sort of future. If you ask me to revert back to the old life, I think it would be pretty hard. I guess I had spent the whole of the 1st month and more in Australia still thinking that I was back in Singapore, but now I'm sort of awake and real. Not sure how to describe this feeling, but its a mixture of sadness, regret, and anticipation(in a good way). I used to wake up in the middle of the night missing my bed back in singapore and it would get me thinking of my family, friends, experiences and even the food( you cant find anything sporean in australia..not even durians!) and thus I would tear a little and there goes my beauty sleep. but now, its better:) maybe its called natutal adaptation:) haha! but i'm really starting to enjoy life here and the people around me even though i still really miss everyone back in singapore.it just doesnt seem do hurting inside anymore:)

SO!!! I shall end this little sad thing now!haha! cant wait for tomorrow! going to UNSW to see if my results can be accepted in commerce(pray!) and then it would Cass's party at night( PLEASW NO DANCING!me and Ang would just drown ourselves in soda!) grandma just mentioned that that is gonna be the last night party I'm going until after HSC CRY!!!!! (thanks andrew for my early birthday dress!!even though you will never see this!HAHA!)

*me having fun @7:45 PM*


Her hair was up in a pony tail,
her favorite dress tied with a bow.
Today was "Daddy's Day" at school,
and she couldn't wait to go.

But her mommy tried to tell her,
that she probably should stay home.
Why the kids might not understand,
if she went to school alone.

But she was not afraid;
she knew just what to say.
What to tell her classmates
of why he wasn't there today.

But still her mother worried,
for her to face this day alone.
And that was why once again,
she tried to keep her daughter home.

But the little girl went to school
eager to tell them all.
Of a dad who's never there
a dad who never calls.

There were daddies along the wall in back,
for everyone to meet.
Children squirming impatiently,
anxious in their seats.

One by one the teacher called
a student from the class.
To introduce their daddy,
as seconds slowly passed.

At last the teacher called her name,
every child turned to stare.
each of them was searching,
for a man who wasn't there.

"Where's her daddy at?!"
she heard a boy call out.
"She probably doesn't have one,"
another student dared to shout.

And from somewhere near the back,
She heard another father say,
"Looks like another deadbeat dad,
too busy to waste his day."

The words did not offend her,
as she smiled up at her Mom,
and looked back at her teacher,
who told her to go on.

And with hands behind her back,
Slowly she began to speak
And out from the mouth of a child,
came words incredibly unique.

"My Daddy couldn't be here,
because he lives so far away.
But I know he wishes he could be,
Since this is such a special day.

And though you cannot meet him,
I wanted you to know.
All about my daddy
and how much he loves me so.

He loved to tell me stories
he taught me to ride my bike.
He surprised me with pink roses,
and taught me to fly a kite.

We used to share fudge sundaes,
and ice cream in a cone.
And though you cannot see him.
I'm not standing here alone."

"Cause my daddy's always with me,
even though we are apart
I know because he told me,
he'll forever be in my heart"

With that, her little hand reached up,
and lay across her chest.
Feeling her own heartbeat,
beneath her favorite dress.

And from somewhere in the crowd of dads,
her mother stood in tears.
Proudly watching her daughter,
who was wise beyond her years.

And when she dropped her hand back down,
staring straight into the crowd.
She finished with a voice so soft,
but its message clear and loud.

"I love my daddy very much,
he's my shining star.
And if he could, he'd be here,
but heaven's just too far "

"You see he was a fireman
and died just this past year
When airplanes hit the towers
and taught Americans to fear.

But sometimes when I close my eyes,
it's like he never went away."
And then she closed her eyes,
and saw him there that day.

And to her mother's amazement,
she witnessed with surprise.
A room full of daddies and children,
all starting to close their eyes.

Who knows what they saw before them,
Who knows what they felt inside
Perhaps for merely a second,
they saw him at her side.

"I know you're with me Daddy,"
to the silence she called out.
And what happened next made believers,
of those once filled with doubt.

Not one in that room could explain it,
for each of their eyes had been closed..
But there on the desk beside her,
was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose.
