You know your part of the story. Now hear the other side.
Cos everyone just want to be heard

"...can't even speak simple English."

The pot calling the kettle black:

Singaporeans bad English

Sometimes, in this part of the world you have to deal with people with a smile on your face and a knife behind your back.

(Un)learning hypocrisy

Don't be a hypocrite.
The smart will avoid you.
The mediocre will hate you.
The stupid will follow you.

Life is a process of learning.
Not just a learning of what to know, but also what to be.
There are many things I learned to be before. I learned to be strong, to be resilient. I learned to be rebellious. I learned to be calculative. I learned to have faith in humanity --and then to have none. I learned to be a leader, I learned to be a follower, I learned to be a spectator.
But the one thing I didn't realize I have to learn, is to be evil.
This is the day. This is the red mark on the calendar that I am learning to be evil.
It is not something I want to do, but something I need to do. Just like any other learning process.
But this one, is a learning that is fueled by hatred towards a hypocrite.

Jedi's birthday gift

Look what I got my bf for his birthday!
Well, I'm kinda broke, so I can't get him fancy gifts and so I've go to get creative.
He absolutely loves Star Wars, so I have my choices narrowed down. Now if only I can think of a theme..
Should I go for Jedi or to the dark side?

I had an empty box put together with some printed materials, rope twine, and ribbons.

Print a card in weird shape. In this case, a lightsaber.

"The highest reward for a man's toil is not what he gets for it,
but what he becomes by it." Somewhat sounds like Yoda.
I bought a "Jedi Path" book for some $20, designed and printed a "Jedi Starter Kit" booklet and, tadaaa.. This is what I get: a box of Jedi Manual, complete with Jedi braid I made from my own hair XD

My bf was absolutely ecstatic when he got the gift. Great gifts don't always mean they're expensive. Like any other great things, it just needs to be something you put your thoughts into.
I've proven it. Now, your turn.

Lessons are everywhere

Sure I learn something from 9GAG. It's not a waste of time.
I'm more sarcastic now, and have better choices of words.

Fix it when it's broken

9Gag can teach you some very good lessons sometimes..

Garfield along the years

Like everyone else, Garfield changes over the years. Here's him on his every birthday.
P.S.: Odie and Jon change too!







Revelation: Hidden Message in The Avengers

Black Widow, Ironman, Thor, Captain America, Hulk.

..take your time, you'll see it
(just like in the movie, Hawkeye is dispensable).

And the answer is...

I know nobody asks, it's because they don't know the question yet.
For those who already realize the problem, good for you.
For those who haven't, I save you the agony of pilgrimage looking for an answer.

It is a question arouse from me trying to be smart and went to read the 1200-odd-page of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. The book is beautiful; a work of art. But that would be a totally different story.
The book holds the philosophy/conviction that Ayn Rand introduced: Objectivism.
For a long time, I tried to understand the essence of that philosophy, but only lately I can grasp the full meaning of it.
Here it is, in Ayn Rand's very own words:

"My philosophy, Objectivism, holds that:

Reality exists as an objective absolute—facts are facts, independent of man’s feelings, wishes, hopes or fears. Reason (the faculty which identifies and integrates the material provided by man’s senses) is man’s only means of perceiving reality, his only source of knowledge, his only guide to action, and his basic means of survival. Man—every man—is an end in himself, not the means to the ends of others. He must exist for his own sake, neither sacrificing himself to others nor sacrificing others to himself. The pursuit of his own rational self-interest and of his own happiness is the highest moral purpose of his life. The ideal political-economic system is laissez-faire capitalism. It is a system where men deal with one another, not as victims and executioners, nor as masters and slaves, but as traders, by free, voluntary exchange to mutual benefit. It is a system where no man may obtain any values from others by resorting to physical force, and no man may initiate the use of physical force against others. The government acts only as a policeman that protects man’s rights; it uses physical force only in retaliation and only against those who initiate its use, such as criminals or foreign invaders. In a system of full capitalism, there should be (but, historically, has not yet been) a complete separation of state and economics, in the same way and for the same reasons as the separation of state and church."

There are some kind of people who don't know the difference between an exclamation mark and a question mark.
She is the kind of person who doesn't know the difference between an exclamation mark and a question mark.

And the boys love it.

There's this girl who has been flirting with my bf. That doesn't even bother me. At first.
But theeeen.. she really likes to teach me how to use English. Correcting my sentences and all. I mean, excuse me ma'am, I'm the one who spent 3 years of formal education of Mass Communication and I'm not the one who speaks the hybrid of Engrin (English-Mandarin).
The funny thing is, THAT makes my bf interested in her. Every time she rephrases my sentence, he'd just jump in and express how correct she is. Even my bestie's bf is always all over her that way.
I feel like.... -- nvm, not even important. I'm just amazed every time --THIS is the kind of girls that guys go for?Dumb and bossy; and 'talkative' is an understatement.
Oh sure, she does it in a cutesy, cutesy way. Battling eyelashes laden with mascara, pouting lips you can't kiss cos of thick lip gloss. But, really guys?


Just realized that in the working world, being bossy means you'll be promoted as manager very soon.

Damn, dad, why did you have to teach me to be obedient whole my life. Now I have difficulty ordering people around. And in my boss' eyes, I'm "not a manager material. I know one when I see one."

So for kids out there, if you want to be manager very fast, (here in Singapore, anyway) please cultivate your bossiness as early in your life as possible.

Expectation vs Reality

A girl who has never eaten a lobster in her life...

Girl: I want to eat lobster :(
Boyfriend: *secretly plan a romantic date by the sea with lobster in the menu, and not forgetting the rose petals shower*

Girl: I want to eat lobster :(
Boyfriend: Yeah, me too.

Moral of the day:
Don't look for a rich boyfriend, but look for a boyfriend who's willing to spend for you.
Don't look for a boyfriend that can play music instrument, but one who would want to play for you.
Don't look for someone who merely loves you, but one who's willing to show it.
And once again, the Bible is right, don't look for someone who is able to, but for one who is willing to do so.


One day, we will all learn to be proud of our achievements, freely.
He who dares not to talk about his achievement, has achieved nothing.
