Dear Blogger,

Worked slightly over 11 hours today because of the Boat Asia event. It was my first time in Sentosa Cove, and I must say that I was a little disappointed with the piece of land. It's actually being developed into "one of the world's most exclusive marina integrated residence". If you own a unit of one of it's luxurious homes, you are supposed to be able to wake up to your own private powerboat parked right outside your door.

But all I saw was undeveloped land and pieces of architecture in the middle of nowhere. It immediately reminded me of Johor for its unfinished development projects across vast lands. The saving grace were the boats and yachts docked at the marina. Not as fantastic as those as Raffles Marina, but since that was the first time I've ever been to a marina, it was quite a sight to behold.

Sam Henley. He was a guest at the event. I remembered his name because he was the cutest expat in the event today. He looked rich and eligible. Alas, I could only see, but not touch. There were other good-looking guys too but they all looked too out of reach for me. Am I turning into an SPG? I do sound like one don't I?

Yesterday, I spent downloading music the whole day. I came across this gem of a classic. It was Soft Cell's "Say Hello Wave Goodbye". It's a typical 80's song but the operatic emotions that Marc Almond portrayed in it made it the perfect breakup song.

Standing in the door of the Pink Flamingo
Crying in the rain
It was a kind of so so love
And I'm going to make sure it never
Happens again

You and I
It had to be
The standing joke of the year
You were a sleep around
A lost and found
And not for me I fear

I tried to make it work
You in a cocktail skirt
And me in a suit
(Well it just wasn't me)

You're used to wearing less
And now you're life's a mess
So insecure you see
I put up with all the scenes
And this is one scene
That's going to be played my way

Take your hands off me
I don't belong to you, you see
Take a look at my face
For the last time
I never knew you
You never knew me
Say hello
Say hello wave goodbye

Under the deep red light
I can see the makeup sliding down
Hey little girl you will always make up
So take off that unbecoming frown

What about me?
Well I'll find someone
That's not going cheap in the sales
A nice little housewife
Who'll give me a steady life
And won't keep going off the rails

We've been involved
For quite a while now
And to keep you secret has been hell
We're strangers meeting for the first time O.K.?
Just smile and say hello
Say hello then wave goodbye
