What Makes Men Fall in Love →
I feel rather uneasy when I read stuff that are right about where my buttons are. I feel like I can be manipulated.
On the fear of growing old
I know people who are absolutely terrified of growing old that they act like they’re in their teens despite their age. We will all age. You can’t stop that. Instead of living in denial, why not spend the energy figuring how you want to age?
La Joie de Vivre: why do we go to parties? Why... →
why do we go to parties? Why does our generation, and every one before us, go out and dance with and kiss people, being temporarily so close when it actually means nothing? Maybe it does mean something. Maybe it’s wanting to be close to someone but being too scared to make it something real, or…
Some men are born great, others have greatness thrust upon them.

I think religion serves a purpose in society. But I think no person should be so religious as to lose their ability for rational thought - to reason without mentioning “God”.

I like most of em. But I wont practice some of them just because ladies these days don’t appreciate it anymore. Edit: I made the above statement and realised how it generalised women. I suppose the one who does appreciate such fine things would be…well…special. *must not be cynical* ;p
I take my command of English for granted sometimes. I forget that being unable to express oneself clearly and accurately can be huge sources of frustration. It seems it’s more frustrating for the speaker than the listener. ( I’m sitting through a meeting with a Chinese delegation and watching how various english-speaking companies deal with the language barrier )
Want to find a good place to trek. Suggestions?
Planning for a trek with Keng Rui for when he comes back in the second half of the year. It should be hard to do(so that the sense of satisfaction is greater). Maybe in Malaysia/Indonesia. Anyone has good suggestions for where?
On Serving My Country
Like most guys in my country, I bitch about having to serve National Service. Not only did it take up 2.5 years of my youth, it continues to demand much from me for the 10 years following that. Thats 12.5 years of my life having to dedicate time and energy to fulfilling my uniformed responsibilities. Yet I have a love for it. Each time I don the uniform, I am reminded of the days when I was...
Everyone is on a quest.
“Everyone is on a quest. Whether we admit it or not, like it or not, want it or not, …we are on a quest to live out our lives and create some kind of meaning from it. For me, I’d like to be able to control my life. To be able to do what I want to, anytime I want to. Some people say that we are all masters of our lives but they are deceiving themselves(and the people who believe...
Wealth, Happiness and Expectations
Had dinner with Corrine the other day and she asked if I would rather be poor and happy or rich an unhappy. Insitinctively, I wanted to answer the former but I hesitated before answering and i’ve been wondering why ever since. Is it because I was afraid of answering ‘wrongly’? That I was really trying to size up her priorities instead. Or is it that my priorities have somewhat...
Posting this from the new BlackBerry Tumblr app. It’s really nice.
There are times when i stop to catch a breath and realise i have no idea who i am or what i’m becoming.

but some women(and the numbers are on the rise i think) have impossible standards. Ladies, when all the 20 guys you get into a relationship with cheat on you or decide to leave you for some seemingly lesser creature, stop for a moment and consider the possibility that the problem may not be the men. It might just be…you.

So cradle your head in your hands And breathe… just breathe,
Living on the edge in my line of work is when you have a deadline 5 hours away and you decide that the only way to fix a problem is to totally undo everything that you’ve done in the past week and start all over again. And hope that the experience gained in those past 5 days will enable you to get the job done in that remaining 5 hours.
I just caught Eternal Sunshine of A Spotless Mind. Beautiful.
