Someday We'll Know

This is the version by New Radicals - I liked this edited version 'cause I love the lyrics, and when you read the lyrics they strike you more. Mandy Moore and Jon Foreman also sang this song, it was the soundtrack to the movie A Walk to Remember. I prefer this version, I really like New Radicals. They've disbanded though. :(

But yes. Back to the song...beautiful isn't it. Causes me to feel contrary to my post before - about making a decision and then sticking to it. Slightly. What I mean by that is, if we make a decision, and somehow due to things not working out (even if you tried your best) - would you then regret, and realise that the last person you were with was actually 'The One'?

But then again, with my chosen belief - everything happens for a reason. Perhaps if you never left the person/if the person never left you, you'd never realise that they were the one. Just another way to think about it I suppose. Possibly it'd be too late to turn back time then, but I guess one would just have to move forward and try to make the best of things isn't it.

Yes. It'd be better to know that you loved, and lost it, than staying in a relationship and never realising that the person you are with is the one for you. That will eventually lead to an imbalanced relationship where one or both parties would suffer anyways. Slightly 'sour grapes' way to think about it, but its either that or you can choose to think that way, or just spend the rest of your life regretting things.

Anyone been in this situation before? Heh. How'd it turn out?

Snow Patrol - Set Fire to the Third Bar

Really cool song. Haunting tune to top off rather pensive / brooding / wistful lyrics. Just makes you stare out into space whilst having a cup of coffee go from hot to warm in your hands...[Yes, since Singfest I've been on a bandbinge. Just surfing the net for some good songs that we don't often hear on radio. Will compile a list one day of my all-time favourite songs.]

So yes. I'm flying off to Manila today. Will be there over the weekend, to judge a dog show (no worries, pictures will be taken. ;)). Am trying *not* to do too much shopping whilst I'm there, I managed to rack up quite a bill thus far. *heh*

This song really makes me think - how relationships work. [Lol yes here we go again].

Do we really decide when and where we fall in love? Can we force situations in times like this? 'Cause often we hear that a 'budding' relationship didn't work out due to the fact that one party 'wasn't in a place in life where he/she wanted to have a relationship'. Is that the case or is it merely an excuse?

Two people may be together for years, and love one another, and yet that love may not match the intensity [or even emotional depth] of a couple that had met for a few weeks and know *immediately* that there was something special there. What can be used as a barometer for falling in love with someone? [Apologies as these are mere meanderings of my train of thought on this subject]. Without the benefit of hindsight, what can we do in this lifetime to ensure that we live a life without regrets?

My answer [the only one that I may humbly put forth with regards to this], is that we make choices, and we stick with it. And try our bloody best to make the best of it. Its wavering and looking back that make things seem uncertain, or that we could've done 'something else that would've been better'. Not true. My dear friend Eugenie profoundly told me once: "We don't make mistakes, dear. We make choices that we genuinely feel at the time - and thus there is no right or wrong."

How we react to things is what makes our choices right or wrong. Not the choice itself.

[Wah sorry if this particular post makes no sense to some. Just my little head thinking in caffiene overdrive.]

It was two beautiful days of sunshine, live music, and lots of fun. It was actually a *little* to hot for my liking, but that didn't stop the 10,000 strong crowd from rampaging in through the doors! Thanks goes to All the Worlds and Midas Productions for putting together what a fantastic event.

Okay so to most of y'all who attended, Singfest 08 may have looked like this to you...
(this photo courtesy of a photographer/blogger who took a pic of me, I steal back can ah? Since its a pic of me can right? ;))

But really, Singfest started out like this for me.............

....Don't ask. Lol.

How much beer at Singfest? Fourthousand Fivehundred Litres. (only?)

But then things got a little more interesting....

Interviewing guys from Simple Plan

Guitarist David and Drummer Chuck

Interviewing the Lost Prophets

One Republic

And the highlight of my stint, speaking with Mr. Mraz himself.

Really humble guy, everything about him just ooozed real-ness and super-niceness. ;)

So yes... I didn't really get to watch alot of the performances, was busy working 'cause Singfest was recorded into a programme to be aired soon. Will definitely let you guys know where and when that happens.

Hope you've enjoyed the pictures! :)
