Lean on Me

"Lean On Me"

[Bono] Oooooohhh

This is for that little child with no father
For that man that doesn't have a place to stay
For that little boy living with AIDS
[R. Kelly] Can I tell you a story, tell you a story
[Kirk] You can lean on me

[R. Kelly]
There's a man (oh yes)
Standing on the corner
He has no home
He has no food
And his blue skies are gone (yes it is)
Can't you hear him cryin' out

[Crystal Lewis]
And there's a girl
Searching for a father and a friend
Praying that the storm someday will end
But instead of walking away
Open up your heart and say

I am here
You don't have to worry
I can see...
[Kirk] I can see your tears
....your tears
I'll be there in a hurry when you call
[Kirk] Yes I will
[Choir] Friends are there to catch you when you fall
[Kirk] Here's my shoulder
[Choir] Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me

[Kirk] halleluia
[Mary J. Blige] Ooooohhhhh
[Kirk] Listen

[Mary J. Blige]
Oh, there's a child
Who is sick and begging to be free
But there is no cure for his disease
He looks up to his mother and

[Choir] As she hold (holds), his hand (hand)
[Bono] Prayin' that someday
The sun will shine again
[Kirk] And the pain?
[Choir] And the pain will end
[Kirk] Pain will end....Come on

[Choir] I am here
[Mary J. Blige] I am here
[Choir] You don't have to worry
[Mary J. Blige] You don't have to worry
[Choir] I can see...
[Mary J. Blige] I see...
[Choir] ....your tears
[Mary J. Blige] ....your tears, yeah
[Choir] I'll be there in a hurry when you call
[Mary J. Blige] I'll be there in a hurry when you call
[Choir] Friends are there to catch you when you fall
[Mary J. Blige] I'm your friend and I'll catch you when, when, when you fall
[Choir] Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
[Mary J. Blige] Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me

[R. Kelly]
Tell me, how can I, how can I love Jesus
When I've never seen His face
[Bono] Yeah, I see you dying
[Crystal Lewis] And I turn and walk away

[Crystal] So hold my hand
[Mary J. Blige] Oooooohhhhh
[Bono] Let me take you to a friend of mine
[R. Kelly] He's waiting just to ease your troubled mind
[Kirk] Yeah, yeah, He loves you more than you'll ever know
[Bono] 'Stead of walking away
[Kirk] Open up
[Crystal Lewis] Open up your heart and say
[Kirk] Come on

[Choir] I am here
[R. Kelly] I am here
You don't have to worry
I can see your tears
I'll be there in a hurry when you call
[Kirk] Alleluia
[Choir] Aaaaaaah
[Tamila Mann - Family] When you call, friends will be there to catch you when, catch you when you fall
[Choir] Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
[Dalon Collins - Family] Thank you Jesus, yeah
[R. Kelly] OhYeah, oh yeah

Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
[Bono] You can lean on me
[R. Kelly] Lean on me, yeah, yeah

.....Is sometimes like a tree in winter.....
Bare and all, it's still beautiful.

St Kilda
Sometimes life is seen to be like an old picture...
When the actual fact is that it is new....
Life is never as it seems.

Melbourne Museum (July 1st)

One of the best memories I had in Melbourne with my dear was the day we went to visit the Melbourne Museum to visit the Titanic Artifact exhibition. One beautiful day and also a day with many memories.

Melbourne Museum.

It was a beautiful morning with so many people visiting the artifact exhibition.  Waited in line and by the time we got the tickets, we had to wait 2 hours before our turn to enter the Titanic exhibition. Thank goodness the museum was huge and packed with things to see.  Trust me, Melbourne Museum is so so so much better than the National Museum in K.L.

First thing you see when you enter the museum.  The first model of the airplane.

Rainforest exhibit. Boy do I miss the tropics.

Giant dead turtle.


Paul's relative.

Thing that eats Paul's kind.

There is a dinosaur exhibition in there too but didn't manage to take pics of it because it was dark and the bones were HUGE!
But I did manage to take pictures of a baby one.
Fun fact: Did you know that Australia is one of those continents where you can find dinosaur bones?
Yep, you can.

Animal exhibits.

Deep sea fish...

But the most important part of the visit were not all these exhibits but the Titanic ones. Too bad we weren't allowed to take any pictures inside. However, there are some memorabilia which you can buy from the exhibit.  Before entering the Titanic exhibits, we were given "Passenger passports".  It was for us to keep till the end of the tour of the exhibit and on the wall, we shall try and see if we "died" or "lived".  So here are the keepsakes.  Sorry if its too sweet.

Our passport.

Upon entry, the background was actually just a green screen, the background was chosen by us.

For those who watched Titanic, this was the replica of the grand-staircase which Rose came down from.  I know we don't look glam enough.  But trust me, the ship's interiors were so amazing (for the century that is).

So if you are wondering if we "lived" or "died"
We both died and drowned.

By the time we finished walking and looking at the exhibits, it was sunset (which is at 5 pm in Melbourne during winter) so we headed outside to look at the sunset.  When people tell you winter is depressing, I say: "Yes, it is. But not always."

The sunset scene outside the museum.

Examination hall.. Beautiful but scary when you have to enter it for exams.

Sunset in winter. Absolutely beautiful.

But its even beautiful with being able to spend it with the one you love.

Walking home, we side-tracked to Brunetti at Lygon Street for a late tea. Had cakes and hot coffee. 


Sadly, holidays are over.... Uni is starting and its the final semester. Sigh.... But it was a great winter (first winter) break. Well, time to start the final semester with a BANG! Can't wait it to end too. God help me.... 

To my 2 wombat heavy dear... I miss you... Hope to see you at the end of the semester.....

Life is never about just a cup of coffee.... Its all about the many cups of coffee which is to come in the future...

Then again... Coffee can be bad for you...

Melbourne Zoo...8/7

These posts in Melbourne would NOT be in sequence because well, I am just too lazy to do so. LOL... But no worries, I did record the date each place I visited in Melbourne.  First off, the zoo is not my "ideal" place to visit but after visiting the Melbourne's Zoo at Parkville, I beg to differ. It was a cold-sunny-winter morning and I promised my dear I will bring her to see Koalas and Kangaroos and the closest sanctuary for these critters is at the city zoo.  We made our way there with my bag filled with cookies (tim-tams) and home-made beef steak sandwiches and when you think not many people will visit the zoo on a weekday, well, you will be dead wrong. It was packed with screaming and excited children and some loud animals (literally. Not referring to any humans.) Thanks to Eddie, I managed to get 2 tickets for the price of one. Seriously, it was a beautiful morning.

The first animal we visited was the Gorilla and his family. And let me tell you, this is the first time I seen animals in zoos so HEALTHY! You can compare this post with the one I did on the Malaysian Zoo (Zoo Negara). My favourite animal of the trip was this guy..


Know why?
Because he is so poised and according to his chart, very GENTLEMAN..

Pygmy Hippo
The smallest Hippo I ever seen.  Surprisingly, there weren't any big ones.

I am king
Baboon.. or a.k.a. Mandrill... The Dominant male has a very colourful ass (literally) but I didn't manage to get a picture of it.

Red panda
And the cutest of them all. The Red Panda.

It was too busy eating to be bothered.

Double trouble Otters

Was suppose to get a picture of the famous new baby aussie elephant, but it was too shy so I only managed to take pictures of only one big elephant.  Well, its not like I never seen an elephant before.

This little critter was so cute.  It was walking back and forth like a supermodel on a runway sniffing who  knows what but thankfully, managed to get a nice shot of this spiky Echidna (Thanks Benny).

Sleepy Koalsa
And of all the animals, the star symbol of the land down under decided to nap that day.  But it still looks cute, none-the-less.

Sleepy Lion
Bah... The lions were sleeping too. Must be the cold weather.... Grrr... Dang you winter.

Follow Mummy pig
And this picture made me miss home. Imagine barbecuing one of these. MMmmmm~ Roasted wild boar...

Dragons of the present
Dragons of the present
Lizards and reptiles anyone?

What you looking at?

Cute little seal... Awwww....

Mosaic Butterfly
Laying eggs
Orange and yellow
Butterflies... I love and hate the space for the butterflies. Why? Because they turned the temperature up to the high 30's and I was wearing long sleeve and a thick jacket. I miss heat, but not that high please.

Oh yea... Can you guess?
Is this animal real or fake?  Try to guess...

Thats all the pictures I have. There are many more at Melbourne zoo. Its just that some pictures didn't turn out nicely.  But trust me, its worth the trip to the zoo.  You will be amazed how pampered these animals are and how well they are being taken of.  

Time to continue with my holidays... SLEEP!
