A Way Back Into Love

Hey folks,

I'm listening to the Music and Lyrics soundtrack now and ooooo Hugh and Drew can sing!!! ahhaha. Very sweet movie which was showing on HBO recently. Apparently because of the screening of the movie on Astro, the soundtrack was sold out in many places here in KL! Hahaha.

I am now in the midst of earful pleasures and preparing for English lessons tonight. Coughing up a lesson plan now and some diagonistic 'test'. Ahhhh. How evil! Going to teach grammar simultaneously with pratical Oral and Written Skills.

Also need to quickly read the book "Holes" as that's the novel my tuition girl, Su-Li is studying for her SPM. Her chosen play, "An Inspector Calls" was my Literature text in Secondary One. Hahaha. How coincidental :) She's coming again on Sunday for tuition. I admire this girl's mother. A single mum, she strives to give her daughter ample opportunities in life and she strongly encouraged Su-Li to sign up for SPM Literature, even though she is not taking that in her school. And the best is Su-Li shows great aptitude towards the subject and complained about her other tutor who does not accept answers which are not 'model answers'. God, how teachers stifle the creativity of children without knowing! I vow not to fall into that pit. (",)v

Yesterday was spent at the stove. In the morning, fluffy pancakes sufficed as breakfast until around 1+pm when I made my specialty Thai Beef Tunghoon salad for a light lunch. We wanted to hit some balls at the golf club but predictabily, dark clouds started gathering and roars of thunder could be heard almost immediately after I put on my new Ashworth golf attire. So, for the upteenth time, we put off going to the country club and headed to Mid Valley Mega Mall.

I had to exchange some books I had purchased wrongly and we headed to MPH after purchasing movie tickets for RM20 each. The Gardens cinema boasted new seats and screens and apparently all the seats came in couple-pairs. The seats could also "recline", we were told but we were disappointed when we found out later we could not put our legs up. The seats were cushy and alittle bouncy, but that was it. But the good thing was, because of the price, there was no snaking queue at the ticketing counter. :D The Gardens shall be our latest favourite haunt.

We bought the Music and Lyrics CD and a DVD to watch at home before heading to MPH. The customer service people were very, very helpful and allowed me to exchange my books for vouchers! *touched* Apparently, not all service sucks in this country :)

We rushed back to watch our movie and were tickled by the 27 Dresses.

Dinner was at "Gurney Drive" in the Gardens. I don't know what it is with our faces or luck but our orders were taken and then forgotten. It was not until I pushed the waiter (after noticing that a hundred guests were served before us) again did our food arrive. The Penang Laksa and Pork Rib Beehoon soup and minute pohpiah left much to be desired by our palates but the fried cockles with sambal belachan made up for half our disappointment.

Then it was Home to watch The Hitcher, which turned out to be a stupid flick and we gave up on Casino Royale cementing my conviction that Pierce Brosnan makes the sexist Bond ever. *slurps*

A Way Back into Love
I've been living with the shadow over head
I've been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
I've been lonely for so long
Trapped in the past, I just can't seem to move on
I've been hiding all my hopes and dreams away
Just in case I ever need them again some day
I've been setting aside time
To clear a little space in the corners of my mind
All I wanna do is find a Way back into Love
I can't make it through without a Way back into Love
I've been watching but the stars refuse to shine
I've been searching but I just don't see the signs
I know that it's out there
There's gotta be something for my soul somewhere
I've been looking for someone to shed some light
not somebody just to get me through the night
I could use some direction
and I'm open to your suggestions
All I wanna do is find a Way back into Love
I can't make it through without a Way back into Love
and if I open my heart again
I guess i'm hoping you'll be there for me in the end
There are moments when I don't know if it's real
Or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration
Not just another negotiation
All I wanna do is find a way back into Love
I can't make it through without a way back into Love
And if I open my heart to you
I'm hoping you'll show me what to do
And if you help me to soar again
You'll know that I'll be there for you in the end
