436: You’re a Firework

There’s just so many things I wanna say

This is bad bad bad. I’ve spent my salary on cookbooks again! Last month, I bought a baking recipe book and a chinese home cooking book. And just today, I bought two more recipe books! Couldn’t resist because the pictures all looked so lovely and these series of recipe books (by this Taiwanese baker) are highly raved by many food bloggers online as well. Haha I don’t know if I’ve got the time to bake but I just love flipping through the pages, looking at the pictures and taking my time to decide when and which to attempt to bake. Somehow I love collecting recipe books! Building up my collections! For now, I’m a proud owner of an ice-cream recipe book, my Okashi by Keiko Ishida recipe book, a book by the Domestic Goddess Nigella Lawson, a book about Home Cooking by this local Singapore Chef and now, two new baking books by the ‘famed’ 孟老师! Yays! They make me happy 🙂 Crazy right?

Had another regular meet-up with the friends again today. It was great chilling out at a friend’s place in front of the TV, then going out for a good meal before ending it off with the GLEE 3D Concert Movie! It was our little adventure into the East of Singapore since most of us are “Western-ers”. Am totally lost in the East so we just tagged along the “Eastern-er”. Had early dinner at the famous Ponggol Nasi Lemak and we were the first in the queue. Even before the stall started up, there was already a queue of about 30 people. And many of whom are purchasing like 20 packets of Nasi Lemak at one go! It’s crazy! It’s been a while since I’ve eaten Nasi Lemak and it was not too bad. Love the coconut rice and the really good chilli! (:

And we chanced upon this very old school bakery called Jie Traditional Bread Cafe and they were selling those very traditional breads! Those soft cottony plain breads which you can ask them to spread kaya, butter or even peanut butter on! The shop was also very quaint and old school and vintage. Haha I love everything vintage and old school! Plus I miss those traditional breads! It’s been a while since I’ve had them! I remember that back when I was in childcare and when my grandparents were still taking care of us, I remember my Ah Ma buying such breads for us! They remind me of the good old childhood days!

Oh watched the GLEE 3D concert movie after that! It was good! Love GLEE and all the songs! We’ve so much to learn from GLEE as well. It’s about accepting that we are all different and embracing all our differences. It’s about acceptance.

Firework


Do you ever feel like a plastic bag,
drifting through the wind
wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
like a house of cards,
one blow from caving in?

Do you ever feel already buried deep?
6 feet under screams but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there’s still a chance for you
‘Cause there’s a spark in you

You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh”
You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe, awe, awe

You don’t have to feel like a waste of space
You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe your reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow
And when it’s time, you’ll know

You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make ’em go “Oh, Oh, Oh”
You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe, awe, awe

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It’s always been inside of you, you, you
And now it’s time to let it through-ough-ough

‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go “Oh, Oh, Oh”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make ’em go “Oh, Oh, Oh”
You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe, awe, awe

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
