Long time no see

Finally, after an absence of a few days, I'm back with more stuffs for my fans. First question you all may ask is WHERE HAVE I BEEN TO ALL THESE WHILE? Well, I'm still not prepared to tell you all yet, since this would require me to come out with one entire long essay which I'm not prepared to do now. Dun worry though, I'm sure I'll be able to give you a satisfactory answer soon enough... maybe in the next few days.

Meanwhile, it has been a tiring week, handing in essays and doing project. Really got nothing exciting to look forward other than for the reason why I have not been blogging. Of course, another exciting thing is that Jay Chou is coming with his new album, so I'm actually quite happy about that. Here's a snippet of his new song:

一群嗜血的蚂蚁被腐肉所吸引
我面无表情看孤独的风景
失去你爱开始分明
失去你还有什么事好关心
那鸽子不再象征和平
我终于被提醒捆着手我现在是奴隶
我用漂亮的押韵形容被掠夺一空的爱情

Quite a nice song, I am going to try master this song... just wait and see.

Meanwhile, akan datang.

Meaning of Flowers

Flowers are given for all occasions and for many reasons. Basically they are given to convey thoughtfulness and love or to express feelings which words are unable to convey. Individuals have their own special meanings attached to flowers. The following are some suggestions:

Funny

I wanted to end off my day with just one blog post but then I decided to throw in another one, cos I came across this very funny site which 'teaches' people to become the perfect Evil Overlord. Here's the link: http://www.proft.org/tips/evil.html

Read it and have a fun time laughing... that is if you can understand the parady behind the tips.

Face the truth

Just recently, I finally decided to face the truth, the truth that I am trying to deny for quite a long time. I do not know if I should, but I did, and I think by accepting the truth is far more reassuring to me that I am not confused. I think it can be really argued that I am trying to be too rational and logical for my own good and not following the direction which my heart tells me to pursue. No no no, this is not the truth which I decided to face, this is one of the truths that I have learnt to face a long time back, once before our time... if you believe in Plato's theory of Forms. Anyway, what I really think inside my mind is really none of other's business, and I really think that sometimes, people should not come and interrogate me for the way I do things. No again, this is not the one either... you have read too much on John Stuart Mills.

I really dun know how to phrase it in the way that I can safely publish it in this blog post. Maybe not and in the case if by the e…

Aquarius

Ganymede, a human boy,was blessed with such beauty that
even gods could not stop falling in love.
One day he was taken away somewhere by a majestic eagle.
Time passed, and in Heaven,gods were fascinated with
a young man who were serving nectar to them at their party.
Thus, Zeus, the lord of gods,gave him the immortality of god
and he became the stars of a man who is pouring water of rain
toward his home ground.

Well, got this poem from www.kagayastudio.com

Today I'm actually feeling quite high and low. High because my lecturer posted my comments in the forum for everyone to read. Low because... I dun wanna talk about it.

Today my two 'brothers' told me a lot of things, when we were going home from Suntec. One thing they mention is that once you feel that you have a bit of feeling for someone, dun wait till you can confirm that you have feeling for her, cos she might have already be taken. The logic is that even if she doesn't thought of you as a lover, if you could have just …

Fallen but still an Angel

I just changed my template to this newest FFVI Advent Children outlook. Looks quite cool, right? I'm beginning to think that Sephiroth is so damn cool, although I ought to give a try in FFVI so that I can understand and appreciate him better. What intrigue me more is that they call him the 'Fallen Angel'. Well, being the most powerful guy in the 'Planet', what an apt nick. An Angel with only one wing... Sounds like me... am I thinking too much? Cloud is cool but I think Sephiroth is much more cooler...

Today, I came across the artworks of this particular Japanese artist called Kagaya. Instantly, I become a fan of his cos his artworks really attract me a lot. If anyone of you all wanna take a peek, his link is in the 'Planet'. Basically he draws a lot of celestial bodies and I particularly like his colourings. Typical contemporary Japanese style but I just like his style.

People say I'm doing too much things for the people around me, and there are even peo…

Not very well presented today

The afternoon today was very bright,
And the evening is going to become night
It's not me who want to be in this plight.
Just that I don't want to lose the fight.

To my love I want to say you are right
To say that I have never properly see the light.
So shall we start again this time
And make sure this time we make it right.

It's not my intention to make this poem rhyme
But sometimes if I dun do that I'll die.
Sometimes I dun really know why.
Is this what I really what I should write?

Today is a sad day
Because I know there is someone out there who cannot smile.
Why is it that people just refuse to see the beautiful morning sunray
And prefer to look at the night and call me 'siao'.

I know this is lame,
But sometimes I just want my blog to be like that
Since this is slowly becoming my aim
And I know that this is just all an act.

Talk cock one lah. Sometimes it's quite fun doing that. But today doesn't seem to have too much reason to cheer for. Even so, I try to cheer. Got…

Refraction... or reflection

I just recently got back my term papers, and I found out that I'm not getting the grades my efforts entail. What went wrong? And why? Am I working too hard? Am I working too stupid for a start? What is lacking in me that is causing all these problems? Is it because I'm not working smart enough? Is it because after two and a half years of vacation, I'm losing touch in doing academic work, though I think it's all BS? Well, time to change my approach towards my studies now.

The experience from these past few days dawned upon me that the four letters L.O.V.E can be far more complicated than I thought it is. I have always understood that L.O.V.E is complicated and have always convinced that it's not as simple as the four letters. In fact, these four letters may be the most mathematically complicated permutation of the English alphabet ever known to man. In Chinese terms, the word ‘爱’ is the most difficult character which Chinese themselves never seem to be able to define…

A fairytale

Long ago, there is this little boy... let's call him 'B'. He was unhappy, or at least he was unhappy with his family. He had a stepmother, a younger stepbrother, born to his father and stepmother. His mother committed suicide by consuming poison and died a few years back. As a result, he hated his family, hated his father, hated his stepmother, except for his brother, who was very close to him. To express his hatred, he often ran away from home, although his father will always find him in the old house they used to live in and also played a lot of pranks with the stepmother.

Ah Boy studied in the elementary school, which his father was the coach of the school basketball team. He had a teacher whom he was very fond of, called ‘C’ but she’s in a love triangle with the VP of his school. He also had a very good friend who was always criticized and alienated by his fellow basketball teammates, named ‘D’. Life went on as much as any other days, until it was time to celebrate his…

I know I know

I know four consecutive posts in one day is something a bit too much but I just feel like posting these few days, for those who just can't get enough of me. lolx. Anyway, I'm posting this because I found a quote from my brother which totally strucked a chord in me. Here goes:

sometimes i just wondered why people want to put religion in between of relationships. like someone go ahead lah! talk about religion for what f*** sia~ say what, "God has prepared one for me", "it's a sin", blah blah blah. Let me tell you the real sin: to like someone but not going for her because of your religion or whatever reasons. to love someone but your religion says it's a sin coz she is a non-believer. that's the real sin. and you know what, you already said God has prepared one. how you know the one is a believer? you mean God only favours the believers lah? Pui~ All are equal, at least that's what i believe, when God created mankind. and you know what? because…

History

As everyone knows, I'm a year 1 FASS student in NUS, going to major in History, the most wonderful subject in the world. Some people say that it's boring. I will argue till the cows come home that it's not. Now, I finally found a piece of article which is going to help me along with it.

Source: This is the article

Just to quote from this piece of article:

History should be one of the most interesting subjects to learn since it chronicles the affairs of human beings - leaders and crooks - and recounts the things they did, or did not do, that changed lives and altered the fates of nations.


Although it is not exactly why I think history is interesting, it entails the feelings of all history lovers. Well....you must admit that there is very interesting lecturers in the history dept of NUS, compared to school teachers. At least we got 'ang moh' lecturers who can speak singlish.

Some more theories

Sometimes, life around me has been somewhat frustrating that I start thinking of theories to explain why they are so. To start off, let's talk about peak hour travelling. How many of you often felt so elusive when it comes to taking public bus transport during peak hours, when buses refused to stop because they are 'full'.

Here's my theory of peak hour bus travelling:

Every bus that refuses to stop at bus stop X for the reason that it is fully occupied by passengers is not fully occupied and has enough space to accomodate the passengers at X.

End of the story? Standing Singaporean bus passengers are selfish and insensitive and refused to move in when there is an influx of passengers waiting to board the bus. As a result, when a 'full' bus moves off, you can always see empty space at the back and you begin wondering 'hey, I can still board the bus!!!' You feel cheated and you feel frustrated at the bus drivers that you wanna complain to SMRT or SBS. You w…

Another personality test for me

I found this personality test in one of my friendster bulletin, tried it and found that it's quite accurate compared to the ones I tried earlier.

Your view on yourself:

You are intelligent, honest and sweet. You are friendly to everybody and don't like conflict. Because you're so cheerful and fun people are naturally attracted to you and like to talk to you.


The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:

You are a true romantic. When you are in love, you will do anything and everything to keep your love true.


Your readiness to commit to a relationship:

You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.


The seriousness of your love:

You are very serious about relationships and aren't interested in wasting time with people you don't really like. If you meet the right person, you will fall deeply and beautifully in love.


Your views on education:

Education is very important in life…

A strange theory: My own meditation

Somehow or rather, the idea of religion(s) has been appearing in my mind since school starts. Maybe because I have a group of friends who are ever so eager to share their religion with their other friends. But by so, it has appeared to me that every single religion in this world appear so unique and distinct from the other. Each has their own points and would be eager to prove that their religion is the one. So how? There is theories that all these religions actually worship the same God but it's just the way of worship that is different. But if so, then how come things appear ever so differently for each single religion.

Take for example, an experience from my Taoist-Buddhist family (our worship is a hybrid between Buddhism and Taoism athough we are officially buddhists). My family just recently relocated my grandfather's remains back to China. When the remains were relocated, my mother made a dream on my grandfather being happy that his remain is being relocated (his origina…

I'm back with...some philosophical jokes... haha

Joke No 1:

The First Law of Philosophy
For every philosopher, there exists an equal and opposite philosopher.
The Second Law of Philosophy
They're both wrong.

Joke No 2: Descartes is sitting in a bar, having a drink. The bartender asks him if he would like another. "I think not," he says and vanishes in a puff of logic.

Joke No 3: Why God Never Received Tenure at a University

Because he had only one major publication.
And it was in Hebrew.
And it had no cited references.
And it wasn't published in a refereed journal or even submitted for peer review.
And some even doubt he wrote it himself.
It may be true that he created the world but what has he done since?
The scientific community has had a very rough time trying to replicate his results.
He rarely came to class, just told students to read the book.
He expelled his first two students for learning.
Although there were only ten requirements, most students failed his tests.
His office hours were infrequent and usually held on a mountai…

Second analysis of myself with horoscopic perspective

Now, I'll begin my second instalment of the analysis. This will probably be the second and the last one I'll do. I have purposely left out the rest cos the rests are not within my capability currently to evaluate, especially the matching horoscope part.

水瓶座男孩喜欢的女孩类型


有智慧有个性的女孩,因为是知性的星座,所以水瓶座男孩的爱是明确而健康的。由於不讨好女孩子,所以那种讲究气氛,追求浪漫的女孩子会觉得他是个不解风情的男人。而他不欣赏那种喜欢幻想织梦的女孩。对於缺乏自主性,人云亦云的人更觉反感。 (I have to admit that there is an element of truth in this statement, that I, as an aquarius, do get attracted to intelligent women with characters of their own and tend to dislike girls who lacked their own opinions on things. But pls do not mistake that there are girls around me who are not intelligent... I will probably get killed if I say that...)

  他最喜欢有个性有见解,能表现自己意见的自慧型的女孩。

  在妆扮方面,他从不考虑是否合适自己,只是对於那些一味追求流行的人不屑一顾。他喜欢那种穿着得体,脸上泛发出健康美的女孩,而性格开朗,头脑灵活乐观健谈,且能赞同他看法的女孩,最能吸引他。又因为他很重友,所以关心朋友的女孩,和能将自己理念清楚说出来的女孩,及喜欢穷根究理的女孩,都是他欣赏的对象。(I have to super agree with this paragraph of analysis. Two hands up. It is very true…

First analysis of myself with horoscopic perspective

Now, let's start my own analysis of myself. I will begin with the character analysis and see how true it is when it applies to me.

性格分析


优点是求知欲强 (true, I know I want to know and I have this burning desire to know more about things)、独立 (true, I tend to be independent as far as I can)、博爱 (hmmmm)、友善 (friendly... okay, I can be very friendly and if no one is hostile to me, I won't be hostile to people)、忠实 (loyalty wise, I tend to be loyal to my friends but as I said, it depends on how my friends treat me as well)、可靠 (reliability depends on my friends' assessment of me)、有创意 (creativity, it comes sometimes)、有远见 (far-sightedness depends on situation)、有智慧 (well, I'm an intelligent animal, right?)、思想新颖 (novel thoughts... sorta overlaps with creativity)、头脑敏锐 (sharp mind? hmmmmm)、善于观察 (observant... I tend to be quite observant of my surrounding.... due to my kayponess)、富有改革精神 (rebellious? okay... my ideas tend to be a bit rebellious and not conformed to standards at time)


缺点个性怪异 (ok…

What people say of my own horoscope - Aquarius

性格分析


优点是求知欲强、独立、博爱、友善、忠实、可靠、有创意、有远见、有智慧、思想新颖、头脑敏锐、善于观察、富有改革精神。

缺点个性怪异、过份执著、标新立异、易夸大问题、固执、墨守成规、不知变通、过于理想主义、倔强、偏激、叛逆、不合群。

性格因为天王星守护的缘故,水瓶座的人非常需要朋友的陪伴,感觉身旁的人都是朋友,甚至结婚也不会减轻其对友谊的重视程度,一旦被水瓶座人当成朋友,那么就会得到他们坚定不移的忠诚。

水瓶座的人可能会经历各种不同的感受,但他们绝不会有寂寞的感觉。但水瓶人需注意,为朋友所做适度的牺牲叫义气,过度了,就叫傻气。

水瓶人总是让人觉得仁慈、友善,给人的第一个印象是富有同情心和善解人意,但他们善于和别人保持距离,并且有些难以捉摸,一方面乐于助人,另一方面却又保持旁观者的超然,别人很难和他建立亲密的关系。

在十二星座中,水瓶座可说是最理智的一个,对事物的观察可随时变更角度,把复杂的问题加以巧妙分析,并准确地预测可能的结果。

水瓶座潜存的顽固性,平时不易表露出来,给人的一般印象是柔和、舒畅的冷静及客观的观察力,积极而强烈的求知心,坚定的意志力和公正的判断力,然由于其刚正不阿的个性,极为厌恶逢迎巴结的小人姿态,具有公正无私的一面。这种硬梆梆的态度,容易被误解为薄情寡义,在不违原则的情况下,倒是不妨通融一下。因为过分的冷静和理智,就缺乏人情味,这对人际关系来说,影响颇大。



与异性的缘份


与白羊座-你们常会吵架

与金牛座-他谨慎认真,是可靠的人!

与双子座-你们是很适合的一对

与巨蟹座-他喜欢照顾别人,你们有缘份,不过常会发生变化

与狮子座-你们会是好朋友

与处女座-他会敏锐的分析和观察力,你们有缘份

与天秤座-你们很有缘份

与天蝎座-他很固执,你们很难合得来

与射手座-你们一碰面就喜欢抬贡

与摩羯座-他很唠叼,只要你不介意,可长久交往

与水瓶座-你们都很任性,无缘却似有缘

与双鱼座-他对你很亲切,你们的交往会圆满






水瓶座男子情归何处


与白羊座的女性-合适度70%

  中上程度的合适度。白羊座的女性把水瓶座的男性当作自已的兄长来仰慕,而 水瓶座的男性也能给予白羊座最亲切的照顾,不知不觉中就孕育出爱的幼苗了。

与金牛座的女性-合适度10%

  不太点适的一对,你们之间总是有一道墙,似乎都无法去突破,彼此间由於 有心结而又不去沟通,日子一久,也就互不信赖,各走各的。

与双子座的女性-合适度90%

  两人的心中都…

Flying to the moon?

Poets often use many words
to say a simple thing
But it takes thought and time and rhyme
to make a poem sing

With music and words
I've been playin'
For you I have written a song
To be sure that you'll know what
I'm sayin' I'll translate as I go along

(yeah uh yeah)

Fly me to the moon
and let me play among the stars
Won't you let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars

In other words
hold my hand
In other words
darling kiss me

Fill my heart with song
and let me sing forever more
'cause you are all I long for
All I worship and adore

In other words
please be true
In other words
I love you

In other words
please be true(please be true, I just want you to be true)
In other words
I love you(I love you, I love you)

(to the moon)

Just take me to the moon and far
yeah

This is one of my favourite English songs. It has a lot of versions but the best is still the one sung by my favourite female singer of all times, Utada Hikaru. It's quite a 'simple and clean' so…

Too much for everything?

Sometimes, a relationship can be so unpredictable. On the outside, it seems so perfect. Then, the next thing you realise is that you start to see the rot within and sometimes you just can't help it but to take things step by step. Sometimes, things can't be forced upon and sometimes, you have to let time do the solution. Sometimes, things just refuse to turn out how you want. Sometimes, it can't be helped.

What would you do if you got friends who have problems but you just can't seem to help them at all? Relationship problems? I'm no expert in love affairs and I constantly fall victim to my own traps. Study problems? Something I can help but what I can achieve is only what the other party wants to achieve. Sometimes, pessimistic sentiment is enough to kill off a person, and while I'm talking, someone's pessimistic feeling may just finish me off in one single knock out blow.

Then, if you can't help it, does it mean that you leave it alone? Being a caring …

Hi, I'm back after a long time... I think blogger has a problem with its code, the option icons got all jumbled up at the posting page. It's definitely not my problem, cos every computer I try gives me the same problem. Anyway, in case my fans are all interested about my private life in school, here's some photos from 16 Oct, during my mid-autumn festival celebration with some of my school friends.
