what's your mode of transport?
mine is the sun.
when it rises dripping from
the sea when it falls like honey on
the trees when it swallows up
clouds my soul moves with it.
mine is you.
i like fridays, rainy days, proud cats, black & white photographs, children's books, short stories and movies that most people would never see. Music serves me justice on sad days (Adele, The Kooks, Mumford & Sons are gems) and genuine smiles are a must-have.
if great times could last forever.

my left collar feels empty now whenever i reach up to touch it. i'ld usually expect to find the Council badge there but instead, there's just this empty space with holes, marking where the badge used to be. gosh. who ever knew that such a small piece of metal could ever make such a difference?
like what Sweez said the other day, our badges, our responsibility, probably seemed so light because there were so many other councillors who helped to shoulder the burden. and he's right. he's just so right.
to the 28th,
thank you so much for your support, especially during Council Camp. i think both CZ and me really appreciated the fact that you guys were behind us throughout the whole time and gave us really constructive comments that helped us to improve the way we do things. also, thanks so much for the memories. all the events that we went through actually showed me what the terms 'organizing' and 'teamwork' was really all about. thanks for the fun moments (orientation! cross country!!), the sad moments (today. sigh.), going through disappointments, anger, tears and even achievements together. i think without council, my life in nanyang would have been so empty. if not for council, i would not have the chance of meeting the most enthu, craziest and the most willing to sacrifice-personal-stuff-for-the-sake-of-the-students in Nanyang. you people have made my college years so much more colourful and allowing me to get to know you so much better. THANK YOU!! ;)
to the 28th Aesthec,
you guys ROCK!
the BEST and FUNKIEST COMM EVER!! WHOO!
Canz: (i know i see you everyday in class but what the heck.. hahahh) aesthec head!! whoohoo! really, without you and your AEP skills, the comm would have painted really really REALLY ugly banners.. ahahh.. thanks so much for being so approachable and uplifty and cheery and just plain crazie!! really wouldn't know what we'ld do without you! thankies!!

nadz: NADZIRAH BAHAROM. hahah. i'll never get tired of saying ur full name out loud. and as Aesthec Treasurer, u certainly did a great job of playing the loan shark role and forcing us into guilt in order to make us fork out money.. heh. and even though u always bug us for money, we love u all the same. thanks for always speaking ur mind abt everything and being so brutally honest. oh and thanks for all the mugging sessions we used to do while waiting for council meeting to start. i hope we'll have more mugging sessions. ahahh. thanks for everything!

zhiming: could always count on u to give super long sms-es of encouragement.. ahahh.. and for being the loudest councillor during cheering sessions.. though u were stressed out over ur studies, i really hope that u had a fulfilling time in council and i'm sure that u've learnt a lot of lessons along the way, especially when u were the Logis Comm head for O2 adhoc. u're a really great guy and i hope that u'll continue to improve urself even when council term ends. Jia you! and dun get too stressed.. not too good for ur poor brain cells. hehehh. gonna miss seeing ya around especially since u're in the science fac.. all the best man :)

to the 29th,
savour the journey of being a councillor. because no other experience would be able to replace it. and treasure and appreciate the moments that u have with ur fellow councillors. all too soon, it might be ur turn to step down. so grab every opportunity that u get. all the best dears and i've told u guys before in council camp and i'll tell u this again: remember that u guys have the potential to do so many great things, not only for urselves but also for ur council and and the students whom u're ultimately working for. i wish u a great and fruitful term ahead. :)
to the council teachers:
thank you thank you thank you for all ur support and encouragement and daring to believe in us. love you all. ;)

up to the sky we believe in each other
gone were the times we called ourselves strangers
we made a difference, now more than ever
we are the 28th
