Happy 2013! (TT #97)

Hello guys!!

Long time no post, I know. First of all, I’d like to wish you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas as well. Mine was.. interesting.., not in a good way though. We’ll get to that part in a bit.

Let’s see what I have in my basket for this very first TT of the year!

A different style from Blink 182!

VE continued pursuing their change in sound as well, from alternative rock to power pop!

Uh oh, 1D’s new video! It looks silly at first, but later on I started to understand that that’s the theme itself lol.

New indie emerging band that I just came across. Reminds me of Matt and Kim :) I even think this band has a higher degree of originality! Love it!

What do you think of the playlist?

So, let’s have a quick recap of my Christmas and New Year.

I had been sick since a week before Christmas and when I thought I was getting better, the otherwise occurred.

My parents came to visit me and my brother in Singapore. I had a lot of plans in my mind and at the end I just stayed in the hotel for the whole time. I started vomiting, though I made it to Christmas Eve mass.


My face was bloated, I guess due to medicine’s complications. I basically took too much medications and every time I took them I just threw everything up. After getting back from church, my parents took me to the hospital. I was hospitalized.

And that’s where I spent my Christmas Eve at.

In the morning I pretty much begged the doctor to let me go home, since I had a flight waiting for me in the afternoon.


Didn’t take any pics at the hospital except this quick shot of my bro holding my present at my ward hehe.

I was thinking, “great, nothing goes right for this Christmas, every plan is ruined”, but as soon as I reached home and saw our little Christmas tree, I felt there’s still a tiny bit of Christmas spirit in my heart. My parents and I exchanged our gifts before the clock passed 12 midnight.


In the morning of  New Year’s Eve, my best friends came over for a late Christmas gift exchange. I will do a haul for my Christmas presents on the next post :)


I spent the New Years with a couple of my aunts at home. But I got sleepy after dinner, so I took a nap and woke up at 11:55 PM. Haha! The noise of fireworks was my alarm and I made it for the countdown. On the New Year’s day I only had lunch with the fam, together with my other aunts and grandmom.

So that was my out-of-plan-yet-memorable year-end holiday.

How was yours?

This holiday I’ve learned that the more I want something to be perfect, the easier it will get to be ruined. I thought too much about getting the right presents and doing the “fun” stuff that made me ill at the end. Nonetheless, although my holiday was far from perfect, at least I learned something from it.

I’m still in my hometown since I needed to go back and forth to the hospital for a check-up. I wasted my flight last Sunday and I realized that I have wasted A LOT of my dad’s money as well :(

I don’t make any resolutions for this year. I did  accomplish some of the last year’s, but I’ve failed many of them too. So if I were to make a resolution, I guess it would be to take care of my health better than before. Without health, everything will be useless. I don’t want to pressurize myself as well and definitely don’t want to make myself disappointed. So I guess I’m just gonna let everything flow by itself. Who knows that I might accomplish something unplanned, right?

Have a wonderful year, everyone!
