As I said

'On the eve of an important exam, will you cater to your best friend's need, provided that he/she is desperately in need of someone to help, or will you heck care and study for your exam?'

I mentioned this in my last post. A dilemma which I got from one of my friends' online journal. Basically test our so-called '义气' or loyalty. What will you do? I think there is nothing more important than friend. What's exam when your best best friend is in trouble. Exam will only get you a piece of paper, what friends bring to our life is something much more. My friend chose studying but my choice is pretty clear at the moment.

I came across an interesting article today while I'm looking through all the blogs that I can find. The article can be found here What the article is basically talking about is badmouthing people in blog can land you in trouble. Basically, what I feel is ... who cares? Teachers ought to understand that when they enter the industry, their behavio…

Somewhere out there

Somewhere out there beneath the pale moonlight
Someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight
Somewhere out there someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another in that dream somewhere out there

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishin' on the same bright star
And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through (love can see us through)
Then we'll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true
- Linda Ronstadt

This is one nice song which suddenly caught me while I was listening to my music just now. Quietly, listening to this music, dun you also wish that somewhere out there, someone is thinking and loving you? Hmm....

Then another one played, a Japanese number:

Kimi no te de kirisaite Tooi hi no kioku wo
Kanashimi no iki no ne wo tometekure yo
Saa Ai ni kogareta mune wo tsuranuke
(Cleave apart the mem…

Laugh it off

Sometimes, I do think that unfound rumours and talks can really kill someone, or at least destroy them. As the saying goes: Food can anyhow eat, things cannot anyhow say, translated literally into Singlish from its chinese counterpart so that you all cannot accuse me of using broken English. I am once someone who go around spreading unfounded rumours... but ever since, I have been the victim of such cases. For the fun.... but sometimes things can really get out of control. Some friend asked me a question on Monday's lecture. I will not reveal the question since I know this implicates a lot of people and since I got my own blog fans (yeah, I'm thick skinned), it's more appropriate to hold off some info. Anyway, off sprouting from this question is another question, or rather, should I say another issue.

Imagine you hang out very frequently and very close with another person of the opposite gender. Nothing out of the ordinary, just plain hang out. Then this goes on for a whil…

A late afternoon thought

Let me tell you the reason why divorce rate in Singapore is so high nowadays: The stone just keeps getting smaller and smaller and smaller, till you realise the previous ones are the biggest and the nicest.

Confused? I first thought that it means the diamond in the ring gets smaller and smaller.... then I realised that there's a hidden meaning behind it. An analogy to explain the whole thing. You are walking by the beach, and you find this very big and pretty stone. You like it a lot, but then you thought that there will be better one along the way, so you decided to give up the stone and hope to find a better one as you walk on. Of course, you will find similar stones but they somehow get smaller and smaller... then finally you decide on one, but you find out that the first one or the previous ones are better. Too late, the better ones have already been picked up by others.

Get the meaning? Sometimes do we really have to pick and choose, pick and choose until like that meh? Of cou…

I think you thought

Hmmmm..... I never used to think that the people around are so interested in my life, though I know that there are people like that, the ones I know so far have not been able to understand my life. Being interested in one thing but to understand it is another. I used to have a friend, or I thought he's a friend, like that. It is the lack of understanding of each other's life, I think, that eventually can break up a friendship. I dun mind people getting interested in my life, but I think there is a thin line between interested and understanding. If you are interested, it's okay, but if you think after knowing my life means understanding it, it's a long way to go. Sentiments can be understood but not life. No one can fully comprehend and understand another person's life. I think you thought who can confirm?

Today a friend asked me a very funny, or not very funny question: is there any girl who have caught my heart in NUS so far? The answer is of course 'no', …

A late night supper

Just returned from a late night supper with two good friends. Discussed quite a lot of things, and eventually I dun know how and I i dun why our discussion began to touch on relationships. Maybe it's just the natural development, given that we are all around 'that age'. Then, I thought of one statement which I made to my friend previously:

'Love is the cause, effect and cure of lovesickness'

Wah, pro sia. This is just a by-the-way statement What really impressed me quite a lot in the conversation is that any guy will make any sacrifice for the one he loves. This I think is true, based on a perspective of a guy who tried to love but never actually really loved and still wants to pretend that he has loved. Come to think of it, it's really damn true. I remember one of my friends told me that being an 'aquarius', I'm a person who treasures my freedom and not wished to be tied down. But then, I did get myself tied down by 'her' and that 'entang…

What FF7: Advent Children Character Are You?


Hosted by theOtaku.com: Anime. Done right.


Well, happen to come across this another interesting test. Try it. Anyway, I do think that the personality test earlier is a fairly accurate one.

Personality test

Your Personality Profile
You are funky, outdoorsy, and down to earth.
While you may not be a total hippie...
You're definitely one of the most free spirited people around.

You are very impulsive - every day is a new adventure.
However, you do put some thought behind all your actions.
Still, you do tend to shock and offend people from time to time!The World's Shortest Personality Test

This is a test I accidentally found in my friend's blog. For my fans, try it out lah.

Sometimes

Sometimes, I think I'm just so damn bored that I can log on into my blog and just write nonsense which people want to think about.... Maybe today I shall attempt to try and discuss about the way and the philosophy of nonsense, something which I dun think people would engage themselves in anyway.

Beginning of the argument: This is the beginning of an agrument about the way of nonsense, ie bullshiting.

Ending: This is the end.

Well, I figure out that in order to argue about bullshiting and nonsense, you cannot use normal way to argue or discuss it out. So what am I doing here? I'm just out to create a meaningless moment for my fans. In other words, I'm just out to kill boredom. Bullshiting in its every essence.

Forget

Treasure each other.
Forget the existence of time,
Forget life and death.
Even if the next second is the end of the world,
As long as this second has not arrived,
It's still not reality yet.

This is a saying I pirated from a HK drama series called 'A Date with a Vampire Part 3'. In case you all don't know the story, go and watch the show, it's now being broadcasted over the national tv on Sunday evenings. I know the whole story cos I have watched the drama somewhere long before its time at Mediacorp TV. I must admit that I don't take too much notice of this quote when I saw it a few months ago. It only caught my attention recently and 'captivated my heart'. Maybe after what has happened over the past 8 weeks or so, my feelings undergoes a subtle change. Maybe it's the toil of studies, a feeling I have long for since that fateful 11/12/2003. Maybe it's a transmutation of a special feeling after 16/07/2005.

Heck, if it's the latter, it would be dis…

Picture of you

Picture of you

Didn't they say that I would make a mistake
Didn't they say you were gonna be trouble
People told me you were too much to take
I couldn't see it, I didn't want to know
I let you in, and you let me down
You messed me up and you turned my life around
Left me feeling I had nowhere to go
I was alone how was I to know that
You would be there when I needed somebody
You would be there the only one could help me
I had a picture of you in my mind
Never knew it could be so wrong
Why'd it take me so long just to find
The friend that was there all along
Who'd believe that after all we've been through
I'd be able to put my trust in you
Goes to show you can forgive and forget
Looking back I have no regrets cos
You would be there when I needed somebody
You would be there the only one could help me
I had a picture of you in my mind
Never knew it could be so wrong
Why'd it take me so long just to find
The friend that was there all along
You would be there when I needed somebo…

Long long time ago

It's the start of a so-called 'term break' and the start of a gruelling research on the Battle of Britain. Didn't do much for that topic yet. My mind has been boggering with other stuffs, or other distractions. Then I see one of my friends' blog post. She said, 'I'm not the person worth waiting for' or something along that line. Then I asked myself why is it that people just have so low confidence on themselves or keep claiming something that they thought it's just them, not the others.

That claim of my friend, the claim that she is not worth waiting for, is a claim made based on her own valuation of herself and her value to the other people. But, then the saying goes, 'there is no unworthy girl in this world, there is only guys who dun know how to appreciate.' To turn the argument around, all the girls in this world are worthy of love because each one of them has their own merits waiting for people to appreciate. The implication behind this…

One More Chance

'The court gave me ten years, you all gave me the death sentence.'

A very inspiring movie from Jack Neo again. This one is called 'One More Chance', about the struggle of three ex-convicts. It truly reflects the difficulty of turning over a new leaf after a stint in prison- a stigma which these poor guys have to suffer, assuming they really want to change their way of life, although the most funny part is the political joke about this guy who takes nude pictures of his maid, only to have his wife report him to the police because she's jealous of the maid's figure. Pretty clear who is that person in this political parody.

But one thing strucked me is that why is it that these people find so hard to look for this 'one more chance'? Actually it doesn't apply to these people also. Think about it, it does apply to all of us. When we betray other people, will they give us that one more chance, we wanna turn over a new leaf? Does that 'one more chance&…

Just testing the blogger's capability to add pictures....




For my readers who have never seen me before, this is me standing there, posing a very cool pose.




Isn't it stunnung to see like another guy here? This is me too, a 'glamour' shot from a previous camp event. Satisfied? But I think I'll seldom post pictures like that, unless it's really meaningful for me to do so. This post is just a prank by someone who can't sleep at night and decided that his blog must have some unconstructive moments too. Basking in the limelight is the mission of this post.

Note: the first picture however will be a permanent feature in this blog. Confused? Look to your left.

Treasure

They'll try to hold you back
They will say your wrong
But they will never understand
The journey that your on

They'll try to change your mind
They'll try to change your heart
But they will never understand
Who you are
And you'll still believe
And you know, you must go

Where the dream takes you
Where your dream takes your heart
Where your heart longs to be
Your dream will lead your on
When you finally find that place
You'll find all you need
Where the dream takes you

There's something in your soul
That won't be denied
It's the faith to dream that keeps
The dream alive
So you'll still believe
And you know, you must go

Where the dream takes you
Where your dream takes your heart
Where your heart longs to be
Your dream will lead you on
When you finally find that place
You'll find all you need

Where the dream takes you…

Go where your heart is meant to be
And you may find somebody there
So won't you share your dream?

Where your dream takes your heart
Your dream will lead you on
When…
