Mistakes.. [Feb. 6th, 2005|02:14 pm]
[Current Mood |okayokay]

I have no idea how many single people in Singapore can actually openly accept one night stands/sex partners but I was shocked by the amount of damage that it does to one's reputation. There are some who go round telling people who they had sex with, not to mention that we're living on an island which is only a dot on the map. How big can the world be? Imagine it was during a guys talk that you realised one of your bud had a fling with your wife years back. Horrible.

On a side note, the worst thing that can happen when you paid for an online service is not getting the service that you paid for. Apparently I've made payment to dh (whose service has always been perfect), emailed them three times and there was not a single response. So, now may12.net is temporarily dead for few weeks and on second thoughts, I shall request a refund (that is if they're still contactable) and stick to livejournal from now onwards. </p> Seems like the society has shaped people to become more judgmental and unforgiving. Can we still afford to make mistakes?

Long Weekend [Jan. 23rd, 2005|12:34 pm]
[Current Mood |crazycrazy]

It was a great week, however be prepared for very random thoughts.

Andy and I decided to meet up last week and we decided to settle at his club to dine for nostalgia. Situated along the sea, we drank for four hours and talked about everything - our love, family, army, friends, studies, future. It's always times like this that makes me pour all my problems. I'm apparently very unhappy with army life and I'm not very sure how much longer I can hold on. But it also serves as a reminder that it's just a small milestone in my life and there are bigger and important matters ahead of me. It's time like this that makes me want to stab my brain, not because I want to die but I wish I can get rid of the brain cells that makes me start thinking very negatively.

And speaking of that, I should really get that book that teaches me to deal with difficult people.

I met Phyllis for dinner too. It's only a few months since we met but I feel that she've bloomed from a sweet girl to a pretty young lady. Also met up with Alvin, Shirley, Bao and Erin on Hari Raya's eve. I'm all excited for Shirley's new business plan and frankly speaking, I'll be very interested to be her media and communication consultant heh. My new queen-size bed has finally come and I felt the bed's a little too big without baby beside me. Anyway, I've decided to hold on to my uni's application for the time being due to unforeseen circumstances.

Hari Raya was wonderful because Baby and I (the self-proclaimed team of professional hotel reviewers) went to check the Scarlet Hotel out. Personally, I think it's even better than Hotel 1929. Shall not included any spoilers, experience for yourself.

And oh, did I mention that I'm craving for more dosage of J Lo?

Baby come on, let's dance!

Superficiality [Jan. 13th, 2005|12:29 pm]
[Current Mood |angryangry]

Events that happened have multiple causes. Simplistic and one dimensional thinking often fails to let one think with integrity. As the word interger simply means wholeness or completion, I'm afraid many does not perceive in multi-demensional ways to see the whole picture.

I feel sorry for baby, who knowingly became a victim of ridiculous assumptions, stereotyping and labelling. Many make up their minds on the basis of very limited information, which usually comes from naive and one dimensional thinking. To start a relationship is as similiar as an emotional investment which involves risks. Perhaps what went wrong is more important than who was wrong, no?

Angry remarks and bad choice of words are really uncalled for. Everyone have moved on with their lives in a very short period of time and I guess that tells alot about everything. I refrain to judge this time but I have to admit that after all that had happened, it tells alot about the superficiality of many.

Need A Break! [Jan. 3rd, 2005|12:27 pm]
[Current Mood |tiredtired]

It's a very short weekend because I only manage to breathe unconfined air for approximately 24 hours. Quite a couple of things happened last week and frankly speaking it was quite a bad week for me.

It feels really nice to be doing something for baby's parents. Though nothing great, but extremely satisfying. Baby says I'm very grumpy and short tempered this week. I realised that myself too so this week, I must watch out and not let it happen again.

Anyway, I lost my visi mini debit card last night. And that's the price for making things smaller. I'm really looking forward to Chinese New Year. Need a break badly from some of the sickening faces that I'm seeing five days a week.

My new addiction.

Resolutions [Jan. 3rd, 2005|12:25 pm]
[Current Mood |contentcontent]

As tsunamis were merely a topic in geography textbooks, I did not expect an earthquake will literally change Asia on the map. If only 60p can buy 100 water purification tablets, which will provide a family with 100 litres of drinkable water, even children can help by donating a small share of their allowance.

2004 had came and gone just like that. People have wrote and asked about my new year's resolutions. As I was thinking if it's important to make any new year resolutions, I realised my resolutions have became increasingly difficult and important every year. Last year, I mentioned that I want to have better health, more money and start to lead a more enriching life. Only recently, I managed to stop touching those sticks, start to save and of course my life has became more meaningful upon baby's entrance in my life. Besides bringing 2004's resolutions forward this year, I'll like to add a new resolution which is to manage my studies well during national slavery. I cross my fingers and hope I can handle it well. With that, I'm sure 2005 will be a tougher year.

Till then, have a great year ahead and hope you'll like this layout.

Come, 2005! [Jan. 1st, 2005|12:22 pm]
I'm feeling kinda groggy as I had less than 3 hours of sleep. New year didn't start off too well. Had a few ridiculously nonsensical quarrels with baby and was in an extremely foul mood earlier on. I'm glad that it's all over. Temper seems to be getting worse too and I wonder if army life has largely contributed to it.

New year's countdown with the gang was great though. To digress a bit, most people seems to like reminiscing things in the past. Everyone has their 'good old days' and seeing Andy last night made me realise there were actually alot of 'good old days' that we missed. Looking back, that was quite nostalgic.

Last but not least, with reference to an old entry I wrote, I'd admit what bao said may have made some sense. More often than not, all may not have much constructive things to do during gatherings. But at the end of the day it managed to serve a very important purpose, that is to know that everyone is doing well and fine."

Well, at least I read that on everyone's face last night. If only those smiles were captured, especially bao's.

Christmas Eve [Dec. 26th, 2004|11:55 am]
First off, merry Christmas! Things look really positive just few days before christmas. I've finally met the important people in baby's life and with that, we've overcame one of our major obstacles. That was considered swift and good for a start!

The Christmas season brings good tidings to all, and the food and beverage scene seems to be streaming with many activites. I was lucky enough to made a last minute reservation at Indochine last night. Not only it was a splendid combination of good food and ambience, the bars and pubs opposite the river added some excitement to the atmosphere when the clock strucked twelve. In parties, I always thought at the point when the clock strucked twelve, that feeling is incredibly orgasmic though it usually does not last for more than a second.

We left Indochine and it was interesting to see people having alot of fun on the streets, which reminds me of myself spraying at strangers on the streets years back. With many people having their love ones around, The Fullerton Hotel seems exceptionally romantic last night. To end it all, the trishaw ride was awesome! It was a little nice experience cuddling with your love one while the wind blew at your face. Without that piece of glass, the night seems colder and somewhat nicer. It just sets alot of eyes looking and beaming with envy heh.

Men are from Mars, Women are From Venus [Dec. 20th, 2004|12:37 pm]
There was a major fight between my folks last night. As she wept, she rambled about her lonely future years ahead and how cold the the house is when everyone's not at home. I wish I could replay that feeling when words like I've tolerated you long enough came out from their mouth. It was frightening of course, that these words came from a happy married couple for more than two decades.

Somehow it reminds me that as a son, I have not been contributing emotionally much to the family. And there was an awkward silence when we were having breakfast this morning.

Maybe all women needs more attention and men just do not have enough to give. That's how the phrase, "Men are from Mars, Women are From Venus" came about, isn't it?

Tribute To My Lecturers [Dec. 19th, 2004|12:38 pm]
I'm glad that Sharlin's willing to share some of her valuable experiences with me when both times I needed help. I appreciate the things that she shared with me, and also her sincerity which was never found in most lecturers. I am grateful to Janny too, for being such a supportive and caring lecturer all these while.

In fact, one of my life's greatest regret is that I was never a good student. In the eyes of these lecturers, I was probably a naughty student who always has problems with punctuality and attitude. But boy it really feels good when I know that they still remember me and willing to go all the way to lend me a helping hand. Maybe I can never understand that sense of satisfaction that teachers gained from the course of teaching.

More or less, I've settled my queries on my studies. Hopefully before the year ends, I have enrolled for my new degree. On a side note, advance merry Christmas to everyone and if you have not realised, it has been snowing here since Friday. And also, I hope those painful corns beneath my foot will all be removed before the new year comes!
