[The Five Days...]  
I'm back!

The thing about KL is that I felt like I was in China. Half the people looked Chinese, most of them spoke Chinese or Cantonese, and the prices were low and pirated stuff was everywhere.



The First Day of KL:

I made friends from Malaysia knowing that I would lose touch with them, and that I would hurt on the day I had to leave.


The Second Day of KL:

I won a game that lasted four hours with my group, and found that Malaysian boys were really much nicer than Singapore ones.

I heard confessions of improbable dreams like mine, and for a moment believed they were possible.


The Third Day of KL:

I saw grown boys cry, and I almost cried with them for I understood why and wished that I could experience their memories for myself.

I orchestrated a dance performance to Livin’ Da Vida Loca, and almost dropped of exhaustion in trying to ready it in four hours.

I hurt, because it was the day I had to leave my newly made friends.


The Fourth Day of KL:

I found long-searched-for anime – FMA, Peacemaker Kurogane, Tactics – and decided that Singapore not only had a very limited selection, but that the prices were also utter, total rip-offs.

I saw a crippled man, a deformed man, begging on the streets, and something inside me ached when he smiled a twisted smile at me for dropping a few coins into his basket.

I smiled because my friends contacted me on their bus trip back to their Malaysian homes and invited met to a gathering, albeit one in the depths of Malaysia.

I found GW anime, and hopped around screaming because of the fact that it was entirely dubbed in Cantonese.


The Fifth Day of KL:

I bought Chinese books I’ll probably never read, and a couple of them are romance novels at that though I didn’t realize it at the time.

I found GW anime in Japanese, and squealed like a deflated balloon when I did.

I saw a man on crutches with one leg gone and the other bent, standing in the middle of cars in a traffic jam, silently holding out tissues to sell and I hurt for him.

I recalled the warmth of the first three days surrounded by friends, and didn’t feel so much of the exhaustion that the last two days with my parents had wrought.

I bought new sports shoes, and hated myself for a moment for it because I remembered what I’d just seen.



And my headache is better, which is why I could finally get onto the com without getting dizzy. Must have been the nosebleed. Funny, though, because throughout the three day course they kept blasting really loud music through really big speakers and I went half deaf and half dizzy.

kizha, veggieincoma, kagen and assorted others - seems like I missed lots of stuff when I was in KL. ;_; Can we get together again to watch trashy stuff? Yes Hana Dori something is trashy. And we can rewatch PoT - last few epis! And after the mindwashing of kagen and veggieincoma - let's go watch GoF again, too. The whole gay bunch. XD

Hi, dearie. You make even a simple trip sound really evocative. *hugs*

Here are the Fuji Syuusuke songs, of which I only have a few because I am a sad soul. I will get you the Atobe songs soon, only they're taking a bit longer to load because for that one, I have the complete album. (It's titled Hametsu e no Rondo. Gee, I wonder why.)

*hugs* I find that despite knowing how safe S'pore is and how lucky we are to live here, it's always a shock to see other countries where there are horror tales about stealing children to make them beggars or kidnapping women to rape them. it's sad. ;_;

fuji songs! *beams* thank you! *glomps* I love fuji's and ryoma's voices the best - maybe because of my OTP... :p

OH ABOUT ATOBE AND THE RONDO THING did you finish watching PoT? That last Atobe/Sanada match - SO GAY I tell you. gaygaygay. the two of them make a great pair. ^____^v

And yes. SanaAto. Is love. *snigger* Hametsu e no Tango? I can just see it already. *smirk* I have Renewed Urge to Write Fic.
Ashenashenskies on December 12th, 2005 02:07 pm (UTC)
thanks! *glomps*

SanaAto is right. ^____^ I burst out laughing at the tango thing... and the music they played in the background! *snerks* the plotbunnies just popped into existence by the hundreds. also when Tez and Ryoma held their match... and Tez and Fuji... and Momo and Ryoma... *_*

write fic! write fic! *prods*

Hiya! I've jumped here after reading your info. on ff.net; I'm a fan of your "Music of Destiny"! (^_^)

Nice "meeting" you!! And I hope you don't mind, but I've friended you since I find your LJ very interesting! (^_~)

I'm a huge H/D fan & also I LOVE anime!! My favorite is CLAMP. Do you know them?
Ashenashenskies on December 13th, 2005 04:50 am (UTC)
Hello! *beams* nice to meet you too. Glad to know you enjoyed my story - and that you find my LJ interesting, which is interesting all in itself because I find it whiny. o.O; And it's always good to have more friends, so you're more than welcome here. Friended you back, by the way. ^_^

H/D and anime! *squeals* Another kindred spirit. I know CLAMP - I love their artwork, though Tsubasa gets on my nerves. I prefer X/1999. any other animes you watch?

[edit] Just got back from your info page - I LOVE your colourbars. stealing a few for myself, hope you don't mind (the H/D ones are pure genius)... and hey, you support Aragolas too! ^_^v

Aaaah! Sorry, sorry, sorry!! I didn't get your message till now!! LJ messed it up with the notification thingy. T_T

Anyway, I hope you had a great Christmas & Happy New Year!!!

CLAMP is THE best!! I like it better when Mokona was drawing. Nekoi's art (Tsubasa) kind of gets on my nerves 'cause it's so...weird? X/1999 is my absolute fav, along with RG Veda, but sadly, the end has yet to be published. My favorite has got to be Seishiro/Subaru!! What about you?

I watch & read LOTS of anime & manga!! Fushigi Yuugi, Saint Seiya, Cluster, White Waltz I, Magnolia Waltz II, etc. are all some of my favs!! Anyone of these titles you like?

Feel free to steal the colorbars, no problemo!!

Nice "meeting" you!!!
Ashenashenskies on January 23rd, 2006 09:17 am (UTC)
sorry I took so long to reply, too. (: busy busy...

I can't really tell between the different CLAMP styles, because I'm not a huge follower of CLAMP, and I just read a bit of theirs. I don't like tsubasa. >_< partly because there's Seishirou and Subaru in there together. *_* hate is a strong word, so I intensely dislike seishirou. I like subaru/kamui. XD

Fushigi Yuugi! I like. ^__^v the rest I haven't read, and some I haven't even heard of. you don't know Gundam Wing, do you?
or weiss, or prince of tennis.

veggieincomaveggieincoma on December 19th, 2005 09:36 am (UTC)
Yeah, right, woman. All those people on my list you see that are not from Singapore, I added them.

Just who do you know on my list that added me because that person is my fan?
