The muse

It's surprising how certain people can just click and talk about stuff as if they've known each other their whole lives. The new muse makes me feel sesquipedalian, I dare say for the better.

Maybe Cheanea was right, I just needed some air. I'm looking forward to ... hanging with Sha, copious amounts of alcohol, dinner with the classmates and coffee with the intern.

As emailed: Correspondances to the "yardstick"

(On people who are not being able to be friends after breaking up)

Personally I think its one of those dysfunctional human behaviours.

From here on, it can go 3 ways.

It can be either due to immaturity, the i-don't-friend-you type, OR suggest that it was a very physical relationship where you don't even bother to be friends when the relationship ends, it was just sex right? OR the saddest one, because he/she can't let go.

The 3rd one only applies to the most helpless romantics, at this day and age are a rare find. Of course and does not apply if they're shagging other people, then they go into the 1st category, see i-don't-friend-you.

Then there is another abnormaly which constitutes of abused victims. Abuse does not necessarily translate to physical violence, can be emotional abuse as well. This warrants enough reason not to maintain contact what so ever with the ex.

Do remember though, you don't want to come across as Prince Charming all the time, if you watched Shrek, you'll remember that the princess chose the green ogre in the end. Well, 2 cents from me.


I'm also wrecking my brains for a provocative feature profile piece for school.
Was thinking of interviewing Sha, the principal, in the style of Playboy.
The attached picture would totally give everyone a nosebleed.
If I was ever good enough for Playboy, I would have totally nailed it.

*shuffles feet* to do or not to do .... that is the question

As seen on Asiaone

Someone just hit the jackpot.

"And there, in a nutshell, is the main reason guys here aren't considered hot: They need to be naughtier, more rebellious, and less goody-two-shoes. I certainly don't think it's a physical thing. Fashion sense can be acquired - just read enough magazines - and teeth can be straightened and polished. A good body is only a gym membership away.

But mental attitude is honed over a lifetime, and it's in this area in which I think young men and women have had the most divergent upbringing.

There are far too many men who are, at heart, little boys who always listen to their parents. Even if there's a small streak of rebelliousness in a boy here, there's nothing like a stint in the army to iron it out. Trouble is, women like spontaneity, and even something of the gruff miscreant in a guy, and are actually turned on by danger.

Singapore guys, however, are largely characterised by pragmatism, industriousness and reliability.

In short, Singaporean men are the type your mother would approve of. Most women, however, are drawn to the very sort that would give mother a mild stroke."

No shit Sherlock.

Kicking it old skool

Where were you ...
When A&W Singapore was having Coney Dog Days?


Literary Plug:

Chronicle of Death Foretold by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

First published in 1982, his ideas were way of its time back then, the closest thing I could relate to his style of writing would be like watching CSI, in book form.

If that even makes any sense.

Beautifully written and timeless.

Pretence and how somethings never change

Everybody needs a little false hope sometimes that pushes us to be more than what we are set out to be.

I had a little blast from the past with YS and Weilin, I think I would have sunk to a new low the day I need help from him. Sigh. Not really that desperate yet.

YS: y too early to say? he's totally perfect & match ur st(an)d(ards)! haha.. & stop studying so much books, heard from weilin u r still studying. y study when life is abt enjoy it to the max? haha..

Me: I must study so that I can get a good job and earn lots of money because I'm not as chio as ivy, or big boobied as sha or lucky as cheanea. If all else fails, I must be self dependant maybe buy myself a midget or sex slave or both. LOL


I'd like to see how he calls me on that one.
YS the quondam rebel, we all go thru that teenage angsty phase. And I suspect he's trying to get back at me for all the days in secondary school where I drew turtles on the back of his hands/arms in black marker while he slept in class.
He never really got mad at me. I think he secretly loved the temporary turtle tattoos, worst still pent up opression waiting for the day to launch a vengeful suprise all out assault on me.

Fast forward 10 years on to 2008, I'm still vandalising other people's hands.
PS I only drew the dinasaur with deformed legs.
PSS Maybe it had leprosy.

As emailed

Other than consumed by melancholy of working a Saturday, I was overwhelmed by an extreme feeling of blah-ness. You could call it a kick in the behind by reality.

Today love and friendship seem like 2 words conjured up to make sense of something that doesn’t make actual sense at all. Like Smorgolfinkletinkk.

I smorgolfinkletinkk you.

Of living life as if it was 2004

"You like badboys," the bestie decided.
"No I don't," I replied in my defence.

I hate being (the) cherry popper.
Its always bad the first time.
You get excited, he gets excited and kaput.
All that excitement over nothing.

Coolest quote

via wikipedia: I did this interview where I just mentioned that I read Foucault. Who doesn't in university, right? I was in this strip club giving this guy a lap dance and all he wanted to do was to discuss Foucault with me. Well, I can stand naked and do my little dance, or I can discuss Foucault, but not at the same time; too much information.
—Annabel Chong 1999 Interview with Mark Penny

Of exasperation and exhaustion

In conversation:

Remember you told me about the first time you had butt sex and you made the girl cry. Doing this report seems pretty close to what she was feeling I think.

If you had 2 hours of your life to waste

Worst book ever.
I'd rather have bad sex than read this book.
I'd rather sit through a lecture than read this book.
I would rather watch re runs of days of our lives than read this book again.
And the list goes on.

Today's anodyne of choice:

And cigarettes.
*inhales deeply and collapses into emoism*

Distracted - mind trippin'

I liked ....

The part where our fingers would intertwine, when he'd hold me when he didn't have to.
It was a nice touch.

His smell of colonge and cigarettes. Mmmmmm.

When I could feel the warmth of his body. I think the warmth itself would drown the snoring akin to turkey mating calls and muffled symphony of farts in the sheets.

Priviledged information.

They said WHAT?

As seen on Asiaone

Singles have also said they are at a loss on how to socialise to find partners. They also complained that private matchmaking agencies are too profit-oriented.
'We will look at how SDU can develop and complement the private sector,' said Mrs Yu-Foo, referring to the Social Development Unit, the government matchmaking agency.

*Face palm*
Seriously? Who are they? I want to know in order to stay far far away from them.


Overheard - A ditsy moment.

What do they speak in Indonesia?
(self answering) Oh yeah Indonesian.
(to himself aloud) What a dumb question.

More school stuff

While looking thru for quotes to begin my report, I thought this one was funny;

Christopher Bigsby and Malcolm Bradbury:
You know what they say: if God had been a Liberal, we wouldn't have had the ten commandments. We'd have had the ten suggestions.

I'm having a love hate relationship with school right now.
Countin' down.

On giving up on Kermit - its heart wrenching but I have to do what I have to do, even if it means setting a dream on fire, kicking its charred remains, screaming DIE BEEEEEEEEEEETCH! I think i feel better.

Movie marathon

Finally finished Made of honor and 27 dresses.

Quote of the day would probably be, "I feel like I just found out my favorite love song was written about a sandwich. "

Loves it.

Research essay

I swear I am using these readings for purely academic purposes.
Nobody said I can't have fun or pick up something interesting while doing my work right?
But one very interesting thing to note; its offensive to objectify women.
Say I put the exact same body parts of a woman, posture etc, that'd be damn vulgar lah.
But with covers like these aren't we objectifying men?
Any thoughts?

To do list?

Soppy will ...
1. Read the Tench and Yeoman's textbook
2. Stop getting distracted by too much information
3. Remain cool
4. Focus, fokussssssssssssss
5. Start on her individual essay
6. Not overthink problems, work/school/lack of social life/degenerating overworked brain

I wonder what it'll take to get this dark cloud that's looming above me. Wish you were here.
