Take Me To Your Heart

"Hiding from the rain and snowTrying to forget but I won't let goLooking at a crowded streetListening to my own heart beat
So many people all around the worldTell me where do I find someone like you girl
Take me to your heart, take me to your soulGive me your hand before I'm oldShow me what love is, haven't got a clueShow me that wonders can be true
They say nothing lasts foreverWe're only here todayLove is now or neverBring me far away
Take me to your heart, take me to your soulGive me your hand and hold meShow me what love is, be my guiding starIt's easy, take me to your heart
Standing on a mountain highLooking at the moon through a clear blue skyI should go and see some friendsBut they don't really comprehend

Don't need too much talking without saying anythingAll I need is someone who makes me wanna sing
Take me to your heart, take me to your soulGive me your hand before I'm oldShow me what love is, haven't got a clueShow me that wonders can be true"

~ Lyrics of my favourite radio DJ's mum's favourite song.

Free Accommodation

Yes, I'm fully aware that you're trying to touch base with me once again now. Why? Because you need free accommodation in my country now. Where were you when you had free accommodation elsewhere while on holiday in my country over the past decade? Not even a phone call.

You and your extended family of more than fifteen people had stayed over at my place whenever all of you visited my country over the much earlier years. The stays can be added up to a month of free lodging over the years. We stayed over at your home for only two nights on two different vacations. The treatment received was so starkly different from those shared by me.

Should I be bothered at all now?

Grace Loo and Eliza Chang

They had been separated at birth, with one baby remaining in Malaysia while the other baby was moved to Singapore.
Yesterday, the bond was obvious from the moment the identical twins reunited in Raub, a sleepy Malaysian town in Pahang.
Smiles and hugs exchanged, the duo started chatting easily about the scorching weather and their plans for the day -- it was almost as if they had never been apart.
But Miss Grace Loo, a 24-year-old Singaporean, did not even know of the existence of her twin until her dad spilled the beans three years ago.
She searched for her sister since then and managed last month to track Miss Eliza Chang down through Facebook.

Lips locked at all times - including for bathroom breaks and meals - is the less than romantic challenge facing Thai couples trying for the kiss to blow away all kisses at a Valentine's Day marathon.

The marathon kicked off yesterday and will go through Valentine's Day, with prizes and glory for the pair that manages to hold out longer than 46 hours, 24 minutes and nine seconds.

That record was set in 2011 by Lakkana Tiranarat, 31, and her husband, both back this year for another go.

Nuclear Test in North Korea

North Korea confirmed on Tuesday it has successfully conducted a third nuclear test, saying it used a miniaturized device that had a greater explosive force than previous tests, the North's KCNA official news agency said.

It said a miniaturised and lighter nuclear device was used. Regional seismic monitoring agencies detected a seismic event, of a magnitude between 4.9 and 5.1, at 11.57am (0257 GMT) with the epicentre in the same location as the North's Punggye-ri nuclear test site.

Kong Hee

Nine executive members of City Harvest Church have been asked to voluntarily extend their suspensions over a multimillion-dollar corruption case or risk being removed from their posts.
The Sunday Times understands that they have each received a letter from the Commissioner of Charities requesting that they remain away from their posts for longer than a year - which is the maximum that it can impose by law.
This is because their suspensions are due to be lifted this June, before the trial ends.
Kong Hee, Tan Ye Peng, Sharon Tan, Chew Eng Han, Serina Wee and John Lam Leng Hung are alleged to have put $24 million into sham bond investments in order to conceal funds channelled to further the music career of Kong's pop singer-wife Ho Yeow Sun.
Another $26.6 million of church money was then said to have been misappropriated to cover up the initial sum.
The six were suspended on the day of their arrest, along with Ms Ho, Mr Kelvin Teo Meng How and Ms Jacqueline Tan Su Pheng.
