The One with My Pain...

How can I tell you that it begins and ends with you?

How do I even begin saying?

You knew then. You should know this will never end.

My love, I can hide.
My pain, I can endure.
But you, I cannot pretend I don't care.

How can I stop when the smile is still eluding your face.
How do I stop, after it is found.

The One with You in mind...

Who hurt you? What troubles you?
I want to know, I need to know.
Your pain is not yours alone; it's mine to pursue.
I cannot just let it go.

How can I make it go away,
So that it is a smile that greet your every day.
I want to know, I need to know.
Even if it kills me, I won't go.

The One with the Deal!

Woah... it's been almost a month since my last post! I was THAT busy!

Anyway, this I've gotta share. Cos I think this is PROOF that I'm in Lady Luck's good books.

So we were waiting for our Dear Coordinator to finish typing his emails (which is a lifetime in itself...) so that we can go for lunch. Meanwhile, Da Jie and Wong started playing with the "Deal or No Deal" game online.

Sadly, they didn't fare too well. Da Jie ended up with $100, while Wong took back $750.

Then of course I had to give it a shot. So I picked Suitcare 17, since it was my birthday (17th June) yesterday. And so I played...

And the result is as shown...

See? WINNER!!!

Maybe I should go and join the game show for real and win that $$$$!

The One with My Bro's Wedding

Dear Brother Daniel,

Since secondary school, we have always known that you will be the first one to settle down, despite your denial. But last night as we bore witness to you entering a new phase in life, it is clear that this is what you have been wanting, and we shared your joy of finding true bliss.

Marriage is a wonderful journey which brings life its meaning and significance, but only to those who believe and are willing to work to protect it. There is no doubt in my mind that with your commitment to each other, you and Olivia will traverse this journey filled with gratitude, memories, and love.

To the best in life and everything you hold dear.

Sincerely yours,

The One with Anything and Whatever

So there is this new drink concept in Singapore market recently, this "Anything" and "Whatever". Now, it's good for a joke, but to put it into a real tangible product and sell it as such, this takes lots of balls, moolah, and blinding stupidity.

Yup, many of us do casually reply "anything" or "whatever" when it comes to buying food or drinks. But to take it literally and have a drink called "Anything" and "Whatever"... that's just... cheap gimmicky.

Now imagine you are at a kopitiam and you are ordering drinks.

You: "Uncle, 1 anything."

Uncle: "Simi anything?"

You (frustrated at Uncle's ignorance): "Neh, the drink lah. Anything."

Uncle (slightly buay song): "I know you want drink lah. What drink lah?!"

You (agitated): "Anything lor!"

Uncle (with dulan face, and super buay song): "(*%()*#&$*_@#_%!! Siao Lian eh, trying to be funny is it? What ANYTHING? I got Coke, Pepsi, Green Tea, Ice Lemon Tea. You tell me what THING you want! NOT ANYTHING!"

You (resigned look): "Okay, Uncle, ok... ok... I don't want Anything liao"

Uncle (in a ready to send you to hospital mood): "EH SIAO LIAN EH?!? WASTING MY TIME AH!??!?!?!?!?"

Is there a need for all these, just to order a drink?

Well here's the trouble with this product. It is Anything, and it tries to be anything, but not Something or One Unique Thing. And marketing wisdom tells us that at the end of the day, it's just Nothing.

Well... Whatever. Ha ha.

The One with the Virgin

I don't get the fuss about the virginity issue in a local mag. Just because a local celebrity paraded the fact that she is a virgin and intends to stay that way until marriage, and some amongst us start chipping into this age-old moral debate again.

What gives??? Seriously, the debate that we should have is how to have more sex, and not staying away from it. Sex makes babies, and Singapore needs more of these cuddlies.

Someone says sex is sacred and should be done with the special someone else. And only upon marriage at that. This is serious BULLSHIT. The association of sex to marriage is a totally bogus one. Our caveman ancestors didn't have a ring-exchanging ceremony just so that they can get on with the action.

Having sex after marriage doesn't make one a better or a more moral person; it just make you have sex at a later age, that's all. Virginity is simply a physical state of being.

Some people obviously got this virgin-till-marriage notion from their parents. Well, sadly, these parents never mentioned anything about this little bugger: Divorce. Then the poor girl has to find ANOTHER SPECIAL SOMEONE to get marry and repeat the whole routine again.
