Couldn't resist!

One of my favourite songs of Damien rice...
such a great and sad song...

And another version of it...

Lisa Hannigan is awesome!! so sad that she's no longer singing with Damien...

here's the lyrics:


Don't hold yourself like that
cause You'll hurt your knees
well I kissed your mouth, and back
But that's all I need
Don't build your world around
Volcanoes melt you down

And What I am to you is not real
What I am to you, you do not need
What I am to you is not what you mean to me
You give me miles and miles of mountains
And I'll ask for the sea

Don't throw yourself like that
In front of me
I kissed your mouth, your back
Is that all you need?
Don't drag my love around
Volcanoes melt me down

What I am to you is not real
What I am to you, you do not need
What I am to you is not what you mean to me
You give me miles and miles of mountains
And I'll ask
What I give to you is just what I'm going through
This is nothing new, no, no just another phase of finding
what I really need is what makes me bleed
But like a new disease, Lord, she's still too young to treat
Volcanoes melt you down
She's still too young +what iam to you+you do not need+is not real
I kissed your mouth
You do not need me

Rose Festival 2007 Autumn

went to Kanoya Rose Festival today.

It will be exactly 1 year ago on Monday when we had Global Festa... God, that was such a crazy time...

Anyways, so went to Rose Garden in hope of taking some nice photos of the roses. Thought might even submit my photography to the Rose/Sea Photo Contest in Kanoya.

It turns out that they are not even in full bloom yet! >_< Well, about 50% in bloom, so not as pretty as it should be. It's been really hot and I think the heat kinda burnt some of the flowers. However, still got some nice shots.

This is one of the few photos that I think might be good enough for submission...

rose in a cup

got a bouquet of roses for my birthday and one flower fell off when the bouguet was waved around violently..(by me). Mayumi san told me to put it in water and watch it bloom...and man, it's pretty...

the above one was taken on the balcony with light around late afternoon. I initially put the flower in a glass. It looks really pretty and clear. (taken with my sony super steadyshot W80)

Then, I put it in a shochu cup which is long with a wide mouth. The rose blooms too widely so half of it is soaked in water... but still looks nice!! (taken with Canon Kiss digital X)

Yabusame in Koyama

well, actually.. Kimotsuki town, since it merged with uchinoura..

anyhoo... went to the Yabusame matsuri where a boy in Junior High 2nd year will ride a horse and shoot on target in the traditional Japanese bow and arrows. If the boy misses the target, then the town will have bad luck in the next year... such a big responsibility on a boy! of course he gets 3 tries, but..what if??!!

I tried to take some nice pics but then it all went by so fast... and I think I concentrate on taking photos and actually didn't see the shooting and riding horse part directly. oh well :p

here's a collage with the photos I took.
