Hang on, Little Tomato

Hang on Little Tomato

Considering my current predicament, I remember a charming song from Pink Martini‘s second album, Hang On Little Tomato. The song title is used as the title of the album as well, which basically tells the message that we have to hang on in the darkest night for something to come through at the end. I love Pink Martini’s music – it has the feel of a bygone era, when life was supposedly charming and pastel-coloured. Haha.

I am a bit more positive today even though still feeling pretty numb about things – I suppose it’s all for the best, considering that if I start a new job in the coming weeks, I will need to ask for an annual leave or at least some unpaid leave in January already for my parents’ Golden Wedding anniversary. Perhaps this long holiday is also God’s funny way to make me lose my weight – I weighed myself before I took my shower, and I’m already 3kgs lighter than my record heaviest. I’m now at 85.1kg – still some way to go before I reach my ideal weight, but hey, it’s a start! Haha. This weight loss has not been gained through exercise or healthy eating, unfortunately – it’s achieved through meal-skipping and haphazard meal time. I guess with so many things to handle and to consider, I haven’t have a lot of appetite. I’m back to my childhood habit of “I’ll eat when I’m hungry”. I certainly wouldn’t mind if I can lose extra kgs so my old clothes can fit me again! Haha. Well, you have to maintain a healthy sense of humour in every situation, even if it’s at your own expense. 😀

I’m about to head to the city in a short while to do some shopping for tomorrow’s Kris Kringle at the youth cellgroup meeting. I suppose going to the city will also help to cheer me up some more, I hope! I don’t feel like running into my old colleagues for the natural reason – I don’t feel like being asked what I am doing now, and any other related questions. Apart from a little shopping, I also hope to buy a new filter material for my aquarium, as it’s due to be replaced this weekend.




Hang on Little Tomato

The sun has left and forgotten me
It’s dark, I cannot see
Why does this rain pour down
I’m gonna drown
In a sea
Of deep confusion

Somebody told me, I don’t know who
Whenever you are sad and blue
And you’re feelin’ all alone and left behind
Just take a look inside and you’ll find

You gotta hold on, hold on through the night
Hang on, things will be all right
Even when it’s dark
And not a bit of spark
Sing-song sunshine from above
Spreading rays of sunny love

Just hang on, hang on to the vine
Stay on, soon you’ll be divine
If you start to cry, look up to the sky
Something’s coming up ahead
To turn your tears to dew instead

And so I hold on to his advice
When change is hard and not so nice
You listen to your heart the whole night through
Your sunny someday will come one day soon to you

I've finally relented to the lures of blogging - and for those who care, well, I'm a self-confessed geek who's a wanderer at heart, who thinks and analyses too much, and who's trying hard to hold on to his 7-year old inner persona.
