High School Musical - When There Was Me and You

Artist: High School Musical Cast lyrics
Album: High School Musical
Year: 2006Title: When There Was Me And You

It's funny when you find yourself
Looking from the outside
I'm standing here but all
I wantIs to be over there
Why did I let myself believe
Miracles could happen
Cause now I have to pretend
That I don't really care

I thought you were my fairytale
A dream when I'm not sleeping
A wish upon a star
That's coming true
But everybody else could tell
That I confused my feelings with the truth
When there was me and you

I swore I knew the melody
That I heard you singing
And when you smiled
You made me feel
Like I could sing along
But then you went and changed the words

Now my heart is empty
I'm only left with used-to-be's
And once upon a song
Now I know you're not a fairytale
And dreams were meant for sleeping
And wishes on a star
Just don't come true
Cause now even I can tell
That I confused my feelings with the truth
Because I liked the view
When there was me and you

I can't believe thatI could be so blind
It's like you were floating
While I was falling
And I didn't mind

Cause I liked the view
Thought you felt it too
When there was me and you

The magical thing about cakes

You noe tt cakes are different, since your age of 3 perhaps? Cake hypes up the bdae celebrations that we have with our frens. Without cakes, bdaes seems to be less significant? haha.. of cos, i'm talking abt cakes, not candles la...

For me, cake makes a world of difference.. besides the high carbo, i definitely enjoy the sweetness of it all.. especially cheesecakes. hmm, I think I need to just imagine the wonders of eating it instead of just really eating them.. cos it does not help me on my dieting...

enjoy the "cakes"!

Finally married!

Ok. They are finally married... Ms Nicole and Mr Wilfred Leung are now Mr and Mrs Wilfred Leung. haha...

I'm just so glad for them... and it was really a day of fun and excitement.. every moment is just so exciting. hee.. So what to do? I am just so blessed this couple, so much so that I slept at 1.30am and I woke up at 7.30am, and my first sentence to my mummy beside my bed is this, "Mummy, Jeslyn is married and I'm so happy for her that I can't sleep any longer. " haha...

I think Nicole and Wilfred are just so blessed to have each other. I am glad that I have at least done something good.. at least I know that Nicole is now well-taken care by her "dear" and her in-laws. Gd to see that the in-laws really dote on Nicole so much. Every single tea that the family members drank ended with a hug and a photography session. I can see that there is so much gd values inculcated in the family. Nicole, you are surely blessed and favored by the Lord! :)

Anyway here's one that i took with Nic. :p The rest will be uploaded soon hopefully.

Praise and Worship pract for Nic & Wilfy's Wedding

Ok.. here comes some of the pics that we took last Sunday, for the P&W pract for N&W's wedding. Ok, I admit that I'm really nervous and stressed up. What to do.. got to lead for 400 over guests. I just simply gotta depend on God isn't it? haha.. Ok here comes the pics... :)

Veron our keyboardist...

Joseph, our vocalist

I thot this pic actually quite amusing... I think he's gonna strangle me for this.. haha...

Me and shuping... Shuzhen's meimei FYI

Serious looks... haha...

Seng and band.. look at their serious faces... I don't dare to play and talk crap... muahaha... oh, can you see Kuan Loong?? he's on the right..

Esmond, our multi-talented guy too. :p

Gwen and me.. talk abt being in the same ministry... simply miss this sista...

and she's moi vocalist for that day too.. :p



I was reading a book tt my shepherd passed to me and the chapter that I was reading was taking about Christ's love for me. It said something that struck me deeply, something that I knew but never understood. It says, "Jesus loves you not for who you are. He simply does!" wow.. what an amazing statement.

So J.L.Y.A.S.D.I. has lingered on my msn nick for some time. Some of my friends actually guessed it correctly. The acronym stands for "Jesus Loves You And So Do I". This made me realised how much God's love is unconditiona and embracing. He knows and cares for me even when I am the most sinful and rebellious at times. How great is the love of our Father!

As I reflect and remembered the love of God in my life, it pushes me to think how much love have I shown to the people in my life. Mind you, I have so many friends in my life that it is still counting... However, i am determined to show love to pple not by the words that I say but also the things that I do. When it feels that nobody loves you, it is even more important that you ought to love others through actions. This is simply because, "Love replicates Love"!

Ok. So what about now? It is time to replicate love.

Btw, anyone wanna show love to moi? haha... You can replicate love for me too...

Updates abt my new job!

Ok. I've been sharing with many friends about my new job, and now, I should write it down as a tribute to God. :)

I've started my new job last month, on the 13th. It was just a short 3 days break from my previous and I barely had any rest. My first day to work was a long long journey. I left home at 7.15am, only to reach office at about 8.40am. haha.. yesh, u r right... from Yishun to West Coast is a good 1 hour 30 minutes everyday.

However, the distance did not deter me from continuing on in this job. Distance is a side factor. The main factors were all blessed by God greatly. I have a great boss, who actually visited Hope before. She is a Christian and she loves God very dearly. However, she is now attending any church with another friend. Hope that she will continue to grow in the Lord. :)

Great colleagues is another factor. Not that my previous colleagues are worse, but this bunch of colleagues are really very guai. So far, I have not really seen anyone taking smoking breaks here. Haha... the most is tea breaks lor... :p

Environment is quiet and peaceful. I am sitting right outside my CEO's room. Haha, how coincidental isn't it... But then, sitting outside his room can be quite stressful at times. haha.. cos u dunnoe when is he going to ask u in for kopi...

Industry... hmm, quite a dry industry... but then it can be interesting at times. It is a company doing IT Business Solutions for manufacturing and semiconductor industry. Very niche and super technical. I am still trying to understand the business..somehow got a bit here and there. Still must 'study' more into it.

guess that this job is really a God-given one. My third day into the job, my boss told me that she wants to groom me to be a manager in the near future. She finds that I have potential. haa... I was like, jaws drop... and it was during lunchtime when she said that. We work very well together as the whole team only comprises of just the 2 of us. But then, we have many common principles and ground rules.. and that make things easier to work abt. And the best thing is, she told me that she only interviewed me, the only candidate, she went home, pray abt it and God confirmed it. Isn't it a God-given blessing?

And I know that God is going to great things here. Not because it is a new job, but it is going to be a brand new experience for me. :)

Dream House

Recently I have this crave to hunt for online pictures on nice houses... haha.. perhaps it is that instinct that I really feel like having my own home. That is why I just want to look at houses... So I realised that that many times, I will be so much attracted to houses that are by the river, sea or overlook some vast skies or land. Cool!

I thought that I would never be a person that likes quiet pastures... but nevertheless, I think I really love a life of slowing down than that of a city life.

Looking at the picture above simply gives me joy... hoho... trees, rivers.. wow... nature-lover like me will not have complaints... but then hopefully that I will not be chased by bees or mosquitoes... haha...

I like this one... cos I can see mountains and sunsets... nice! cool and quiet...

and here comes my dream house!!

I think I will not stay in Singapore for my entire life. I hope not... :p

A long long way....

Yes... I can't believe it!! My first shepherd is getting married next week. This is so so amazing. If you don't know us well, you might thought that we are just good friends or sisters, but then we have shared a long long history through youth till now, adulthood. I simply cannot comprehend how much good and bad times that we have went through together.

Since my conversion (genuine) in Hope, I have reckoned that Nicole aka Jeslyn aka Peiqin, is one of those that have impacted me greatly. Her sweet spirit of servanthood, positive mindset and never-say-die motto inspires me on greatly.

Many knew her as one that is gentle and timid. But I know her as a woman full of courage and wisdom. She has taught me a great deal of things since my new believer days till now. I've also witnessed her growth in strength, day by day, month by month and year by year. I am so glad that we did not just remain the status of shepherd and sheep, but as friends beyond words. I would say that without her perseverance and patience with me, I don't think I will be able to survive my new believer's stage. Thanks Nicole!

Since 1996 till today, we have built 12 years of friendship and we are still building. Looking forward to another new chapter of our growth in the Lord.

Blessings be with you, Nicole! And remember, must build a strong and biblical family ar!!!

Random Thots

Looking through my previous company’s website and saw a video that they did up for PSA (Project Super Achievers). My gosh!! I saw myself in the video lor… ~faintz~ That was when I was only 1 month old with the company… and there I was, facilitating the students in the games… haha… I really quite miss the time that I was coaching the students. It was a mountain-full of experiences, a very steep learning curve indeed.

As I looked back to my coaching job, my FP job and my current job, I can’t help but to give thanks to God for the process. The coaching job gave me a very fulfilling time, a time that not only I have learnt to coach others, I was also being coached as well. I looked back in my life and I saw many times of insecurity and reflection of my childhood days. The background of my family, how I have been brought up etc, gave me a true rewind of what life was meant to be in me. However, if not for God, I don’t think I am able to overcome all my negative self-portrayals a step at a time. I have learnt to forgive my family and love my parents. If not for Jesus, I think I would still be suffering in silence, and might even have committed suicides some years back. Some people asked me, “Why are you always so happy? Jovial? Worry-free?” I can only say that I am such a jovial person because I have found Christ. Perhaps I am noisy to a certain extent and people can’t tolerate that kind of noise level, but still, I can only say that my “noise” came from my real self, not my made-up being. I enjoy being myself. However, if you really find that I am too noisy, just let me know bah… btw, I have toned down quite a fair bit, I wonder if you have realized it. It is kinda unfair to me, just to say that I am noisy when you have not even know me to a deeper level.

Anyway, back to my coaching job… to my amazement, within a short 8 months of training with the students last year, I have managed to conquer 9,000 over students. How amazing, isn’t it?
