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.

On My Own
this is just one of my favourite songs in the WHOLE of Les Miserables, the musical. (call me mushy but i don't care.) it's a horrible sad case of unrequited love, where idiotic Marius is TOO DARN BLIND to see that Eponine loves him and later, she dies, without Marius ever knowing that she had loved him. the worst part is that he falls in love with another girl (who i think is really shallow AND ugly in this version)without actually knowing her as well as he had known poor forgotten Eponine (love at first sight.. if there's ever such a thing).
oh. and Lea Salonga is really fantastic as Eponine.
(alright. i'm biased. she's the only Asian singer/actress to have REALLY made it on broadway with lead castings in Miss Saigon and Les Miserables. power vocals. oh, and she was also the singing voice of Jasmine in Aladdin. just superb.)
btw, you should be able to see the pictures of Morocco on the previous entry now..
