Rude

Hm... some people just wanna pick up a fight. Our entire family was walking to northpoint this evening when we encounter this middle age malay man. He saw cai from afar le and purposely walked into his path. Bro was holding the leash at that point and we weren't really half expecting cai to do anything silly. We stayed to the side and that man actually tried to squeeze pass cai's side. Given the close proximity, cai was defensive cos that man jerked his legs at him. He started to snarl and bark at him. At that instant, the man started shouting loudly at my bro "U take care of your dog". Despite me and mom apologising, he went on hurling the same thing very loudly and looked like he wanted to start a fight anytime.

Piangz.. Coming to think about it after that, we think he was doing it out of purpose. We had already walked to a side le and he chose to come near the dog.... And dad says he was drunk. Wah liew... I dun understand why some people enjoying starting a fight at all.

Tired...

Very tired... Went to East coast parkway after going to the temple. We end up staying there longer than expected. Cai got all wet when we all ran along the coast line. Think he still has phobia of the sea. We all got pretty red in the sun. Now I'm just so tired... playing chauffeur for family is no joke.

CNY

At Sembawang Park.

Dad takes the leash.

Having stay near this area for so song, this is only the 3rd time I've been here.

With so many shops closed, people are flocking to parks and beaches.

Cai still cant get used to the sand. Keep getting them up this nose.

Now dad knows how hard it is to control this little monster.

CNY

By holiday standards, waking up at 9am is pretty early le. Since I'm the only driver, I will be the family chauffeur for the entire week. Woke up early to drive mom to the cold storage and to get breakfast for the rest. Very jia lat. My parking still sucks! Haiz.. To think that I parked pretty well last year lor. Used to park at one go. Now I have to continue navigating front and back to get it right. Paiseh...

While mom did her shopping, I took cai to the dam again. Though it was around 11am, the sun wasn't as hot as we anticipated and the breeze was real cool! We practically ran from one end to the other.

Chinese New Year Eve

Was our little cousin's birthday as well. Love that mango cake. It was yummy. He's also a young uncle le wo.

See! This is our ke ai de niece. Was a little worried to carry her small little frame. But this little imp can really grasp your finger hard.

Driving Scare

Had a little scare on the road just now. Was driving along Yishun ave 5 when this stupid bicycle dashed out into the mid lane and SLOWED DOWN... Kaoz.. it was so sudden tat I had to jam brake and honk him. Wah piangs... had I hit him and his lady friend, then it will be my fault no matter wat.. Then I realised it was a china guy.. Too used to be riding in china le ma that he took for granted that the situation is similar here? Fancy a small bicycle taking the entire mid lane... Bo zheng hu le..

财回来了

财回来了. 应该玩得太累了, 在车上呼呼大睡. 在它小小的世界里, 应该只有简简单单的爱, 快乐, 无聊和肚子饿吧, 所以看着它也会觉得幸福. 新年快乐...

On Driving

Already feeling a little tired. Woke up darn early to collect the rented Ford. Sad.. its a dark green one (Something light colour will be good) but okay la, mai hiam buai pai. Since its an auto transmission, I was much more relaxed. Mom almost wanted me to drive to Rochor... Luckily the guy she was looking for was not available. Imagine having to drive to the CBD after 1 year of non-driving and plus my lousy sense of direction. STRESSED.

From the car rental place, we drove to Serangoon Gardens to have lunch, followed by a short walk at Upper Pierce Reservoir, to the market then back home. Like dat I'm already feeling tired le. *Salutez* to the cabbies. I wonder how I manage to "tong" the last 2 cny years.

幸福

幸福只在一念之间. 只是看一个人愿不愿去接受. 会有人拒绝的吗?

Forgotten prayers

I realised that I always forget to pray for myself....

Friend: U go pray anot?
Me: As long I'm nearby or some special occasion lor.
Friend: What u pray for?
Me: 爱我, 疼我, 关心我的人开心, 健康和幸福. 我爱和关心的人开心, 健康和幸福.
Friend: Then for yourself?
Me:... (shit.. I always forget)

Maybe that's why 神明 dun particularly 眷顾 me...

Handsfree

I realised that I dun have a handsfree set for my handphone. Will be driving my week away.. Wun be able to pick up calls as I like unless I stop the car at the road side but that's so lame. I dun even know wat the compatible handsfree looks like even. Talk about being resourceful, I'm a total idiot.

不敢

会不会对于某些事物已经不敢再碰或不敢再因此而快乐起来? 人的思维往往会有些怪异. 对于一些常人会觉得过分的举动, 竟然好不介意. 自己应该是在发疯期.
思绪有点混乱.

爱一直闪亮 - 罗美玲

我一个人的沙发上还有你拥抱的力量
起身才看见孤独的形状在空气里曝光
明明是咖啡不加糖怎么喝还是懒洋洋
你不在的天气装了开关碰到天就黑暗

我以为爱一直闪亮
现在剩一个人坚强
想念在手中张开变翅膀
我还懂不懂飞翔
忘记了我懂飞翔

我看见爱一直在闪亮
想逃的心改变了方向
只因这城市情歌太悲伤
才让一碗热汤红了眼框

电视里爱情播不完
怎么转才能离开现场
如果我承认你让我很难忘
结局能不能换

Mayday Boom

Booming Mayday in office now that there's no one here. Their songs always make one happier. So good to have them. Gonna listen to the entire concert before I leave ba.

Bangz Head

I wonder how long more till I really start banging my head in boss's office. Not that the rest are having it fine either la, but crappy to be given work that you never really got in touch before right. Suddenly, I'm Miss Miscellaneous. Too much things to do means I cant complete them in time. Everytime I try focusing on something, someone or something will come up to disrupt. Phew..
There are students waiting for me to guide, students asking questions that I have no answers to, misc "urgent" tasks (This person and that person all saying that it's urgent), database integration, website content, hardware setup (<--- I'm an idiot at this), animation, model library clean up, program set up for students and a computer threatening to crash anytime. I realised it must be my retribution for being a 可恶的人.

I'm sorry.... U know who you are (If you read me). I owe you more than just this simple apology... Not getting it any better myself.... Haiz..

Amidst the current situation, I supposed the CPU fan's about to turn its back on me too. Like me, it must have been too much for the computer to be out of its comfort zone too. Had to shift it into the lab for a demo for a group of NUS students (Hm.. met someone from the same Junior College as me though I dun rem le). After shifting it back to place, it protested with a message on screen saying that "CPU1 fan failed". Sian... Restarted it again and got this message "Previous fan failure". Being a hardware idiot I was, I had to seek Adrian's help to take a look.
CPU fan's speed = 102RPM....... <----slow
Haiz.. Big hastle to contact our pc suppliers to seek more assistance.
时间将云和水分隔在不同世界
天在
地平线才能与海相连接
缘让多少人擦肩後匆匆道别
眼望不穿阻挡你我之间的一切

这些年有多远走多远不停歇
寻找一线能够连接你我的思念
才发现地平线是地面联着天一同局骗
越走向前就越快回到原点到绝望身边

Sunday, January 22, 2006

世界应该没有人比我更可恶了.
我怎么会是这样.. 我连自己都搞不清楚了.
今天和朋友出门散心, 她哭了, 我安慰.
她: 你很坚强.
我: ......
她: 你没哭
应该是没资格吧.

Hm.. steer clear from me in case u kena my poison..

Ear's been achy for a week le. Though better, still achy. Lets see how it goes.
Seems like a normal day's end at Canteen A's bus stop.
There's a line up of 179s... 原来 the first bus had stalled and was blocking the traffic

Despite attempts to move the first bus, it wouldn't bulge.. So the next thing was really to try and squeeze through yah. The second bus came very very close lor... There were people at every angle trying to give signals... Eh.. Not like it really helped the driver to see so many hands waving him to go on. On a slope somemore...

Finally, it went through! The 3rd bus have to follow the set record le. hiak hiak hiak

我昨眠的梦
小汉的我
熟悉的所在
梦犹原是梦
什么时候
我却这大棕
为什么心内的感觉
鼻头在酸涩
我想说我已经
是漂泊的人
冰箱上有字条
桌上有菜
电锅里面有饭
没有人在
电话里的独白
还在等待
一个人的表情
怎么安排

而我到底是谁
从哪里来又要到哪里去
给我答案
生命啊像灾难
已经习惯
无尽白天夜晚
永不间断
飞过那片茫茫人海
下个路口直走或转弯
长大太慢老得太快
等得太久
结果太难猜
我的故事被风吹散
我的明天我从不期待
所以现在我只想要
寻找一丝最后的温暖
包厢里的狂欢
曲终人散
长夜里的空白
消化不完
灵魂总是要贪
片刻灿烂
那双唇的孤单
变得野蛮
那陌生的阳光
照在床单
昨夜发生的事
不想再猜
而枕边的人啊
一直在换
每一次都以为
到了终站

飞过那片茫茫人海
我的故事被风吹散
最后的温暖
一句话.. 完蛋!
A colleague suddenly popped in to say if demos can be shown locally to visitors that have already arrived! Best le lor.. So last min de. My desk's in a mess, our entire office is full of makans.

Overhead dialogue between 2 professors:

Prof 1: I was just asking this xx company the other day. When you shoot your satellite up in space, do you have any form of collision prevention with the rest of the objects in space? They say "Well, Potluck! " Isn't it amazing?

Prof 2: With almost 30k space rubbish out there, it seems like earth's safer now.

Prof 1: lol. Amazing these people.The lifespan of the satellite could be simply 3 years and after that, they do nothing to it. The whole space is just getting over populated.
真的很不能够理解. 终于看到了人与人之间的明争暗斗, 所谓的大鱼吃小鱼.
虽说不是完全的争权夺利, 但也是差不多这个样. 由于是工作性质, 也不方便透露太多. 以一个旁观者的角度来看, 我只能说自己对一些人的作风有点反感.
Everything seems to be going wrong.. Ah Heck! Yesterday's class seemed to be a test for me. A test of my endurance towards horrid flamings. Sorry to say tat though lao shi was harsh, he din get to taste the sweetness of seeing me crumble. Was initially feeling gek and all that, but soon after I became super undaunted. Flame me all you want la, it didnt bother me that much le. U want to test my ability to receive ur hurls then I'm more than gamed to take you on. BLEH! At the same time, I've already channelled my grievences else where le! Muahahahaha

The entire family was watching tv one evening when we decided that we would all play with cai. At the count of 3, we 配合 and clapped simultaneously. That got that little imp real excited and started hopping from one to another. He enjoys having such grand audiences and attention.

Cai cai's really a joy when you need him to be. Was trying to cheoreograph a dance for my lesson and he had to play a part in joining in. He will hop around me in circles as I was trying out some moves. So cute but very distracting. I end up playing with him instead.

Was feeling sian and off these days ma. This little boy sure knows how to make my day. At times like this, he will have sudden outbursts of affection. He will suddenly get very joyful and excitedly leap and bound onto me, giving full smacks on the cheeks (reminding me that there's still him around). U cant not smile at that little antic of his.

If not for the fact that we have important visitors this week, I would have gladly taken some off... Not that I'm feeling lazy or that I yearn for more holidays la.... Aiz.. Mentally exhausted.
How far would you go for your dog?

A very classic example of total devotion...
Ms Nelly Yeo, 40.
Taken from news:

She started doing this six months ago. She has given up sleeping in her comfy three-room HDB flat in Boon Lay to spend her nights in a partially-used building just so that she can keep her dog company.

She says it's a small sacrifice to pay for the love she has for her pet, which she refers to as her 'son' - a 7-year-old mongrel called Star.

She has no choice, really. Ms Yeo, who is single, was fined $50 for keeping an unauthorised breed in an HDB flat at the end of 2004.

Ms Yeo, who bought her flat in September 2000, has been living on her own for almost 20 years and is not close to her family.

In 2001, she was told by the authorities that her neighbours had complained about her dog.

She then put Star in a Pasir Ris pet farm and visited him every day.

Eventually, she decided to give up her security-guard job, which had paid her $1,000 a month, to work at the farm.

'I wanted to stay overnight but only staff members could do that, so I decided to work there. I got free board for Star, and I was paid $650 a month at first. But later I only got $5 a day for meals because business was affected by the Sars outbreak,' said Ms Yeo.

She put up with the low pay to be with Star, but had to stop work after injuring her back in a fall in 2003.

Ms Yeo volunteered to work in two animal welfare shelters in exchange for Star's accommodation, but after a few months, her back hurt too much and she had to stay home to rest.

She took Star back to her Boon Lay flat at the end of 2004.

That was when she was fined and warned by AVA officials to keep Star elsewhere, otherwise he would be confiscated and sent to the pound.

Desperate, she said she borrowed $1,000 from a loan shark to help pay the rent for a private apartment in Kovan.

For about six months, Ms Yeo lived there with Star but when her money ran out, she and her dog were evicted.

The pair took to the streets and started sleeping at MRT stations and public parks since the middle of last year.

Ms Yeo said she was chased away from these places by the authorities. She eventually found shelter in the staircase landing of a Boon Lay building.

GONE TO THE DOG

A passer-by, Ms Maggie Tan, called The New Paper hotline after seeing her asleep there.

'She's there almost the whole day except when she buys food for the dog. She seems to have given up her life for her dog.

'She goes home to shower and keeps her things in the flat, but spends nights outside. It's quite sad and I do worry for her well-being,' said Ms Tan, 48.

But Ms Yeo, now jobless, is not daunted by the hardship of her life outdoors.

'Once there were some foreign workers who kept looking at me and Star. I was so scared I couldn't sleep, although Star made sure they didn't come near me,' she recalled.

She doesn't face such problems now as she sleeps in the day and walks Star at night.

Ms Yeo now survives on the $500 monthly rent from tenants in her three-room flat.

When The New Paper on Sunday visited her in the Boon Lay building earlier this week, we found it clean and tidy. There was a mat, a windbreaker, some food and water for Star, and some mosquito coils.

Ms Yeo said she got Star as a puppy in 1999. His mother was a stray which gave birth to six puppies in a Paya Lebar canal. She abandoned them there.

'When the tide came in, four of them drowned leaving just Star and another puppy,' said Ms Yeo.

The white-and-brown ball of fur reminded Ms Yeo of her first dog, which died suddenly from an illness.

'His eyes weren't even open yet. I bottle-fed him for seven days before they opened,' said Ms Yeo.

Although her family has kept a dozen other dogs and Ms Yeo keeps other pets like fish and tortoises, Star is special to her.

He's the first dog that she brought up from young. Like a proud 'mother', she has an entire album with photographs of her beloved pet.

Every year in August, she buys him a cake with candles to celebrate his birthday.


Although money is tight, Ms Yeo spends about $250, which is half of her rent money, on branded dog food and special treats for Star.

To bathe him weekly, she buys cleansing gel from Nu Skin, a US cosmetics brand that's usually used by people, not dogs. A small 400 ml bottle costs $17, said Ms Yeo.

She said she started bathing Star with the Nu Skin gel because he seemed to have an allergic reaction to a previous dog shampoo.

'He liked it very much. After that, I couldn't switch back because he growled when I tried to use other shampoos,' said Ms Yeo.

She spends less than $100 on herself, sometimes only eating one meal a day.

'When I eat chicken, I will only chew the bone and take the fat and skin, I will give Star the meat,' she said.

What is it like to be sleeping in the streets?

Her answer wasn't about herself, but about her dog, which she says was not used to the stress of outdoor living at first.

'He had high fever for three days. My vet friend told me to try giving him a quarter of a Panadol. I did that and he got well,' she recalled.

There was another time when Star's face swelled for a week. Ms Yeo borrowed money from her dad to take Star to a vet.

Ms Yeo said her father and siblings want her to give up Star.

'They don't see the need to help me. They think I can get another smaller dog. But I just can't. He depends on me. He will not eat food given by other people.'

She said: 'People think I'm mad, but what can I do? I did try to re-home him when he was growing up because I could see he was too big to be kept in a flat. But no-one wants mongrels. Now I'm too attached to him to let go.'

Ms Yeo's friend, a housing agent, is trying to find alternative accommodation for her and her dog so that she can look for a job.

'But she can't find work because of her bad back,' he said.

She added: 'I also don't want to be operated on because if something happens to me, who will take care of Star?'

What have I done for cai? Nothing very great if I were to compare to Ms Yeo maybe except for that one time?
Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation
Darkness wakes and stirs imagination
Silently the senses, abandon their defences

Slowly, gently night unfurls its splendour
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light
and listen to the music of the night

Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams
Purge your thoughts of the life you knew before
Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar
and you'll live, as you've never lived before

Softly, Deftly, Music shall surround you
Feel it, Hear it, Closing in around you
Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind,
In this darkness that you know you cannot fight
The darkness of the music of the night

If only somethings are just that easy..

Potty Training - Feng's Approach

First and most important element: Owner's patience <--------- Very very very impt.
Time needed: Depend on individual doggie. Each have their own habbit and learning ability.

Suggestions:

Always praise the little furballs when they get it right. U can enforce training by giving them treats whenever they do it right immediately. Never scold them when the deed's done long ago. If really need to, bring them to the scene of "crime" to reprimand then ignore him/her for at least 5 mins. The tone of ur voice also allows them to differentiate between anger and joy. A low tone should be used to reprimand and command. A higher pitch tone normally equates to joy.
  1. Use a pee spray. Available off shelves at any pet stores. U just needa spray a little amount on their newspapers and hopefully they will get it in time.
  2. Dab a little of their pee on the paper so that they recognise the smell.
  3. Fence furball in a smaller area first. Cover most ground with newspapers. Determine favourite spot they do their pee pee. Then slowly remove paper bit by bit.
When your mood sux, your entire body launches into a sickly composure too. Headache la, tummyache la, ear ache la, u name it. Slept earlier ending up feeling more sleepy. I'm wondering if we must sleep in blocks of 4 hrs since that's one sleep cycle.

Recently uncle johnny also decided to colour up my dream life. Keep plaguing me with weird unexplainable scenarios. People inside start acting weird or is that just my mind's own make up.

Ah! Time to go RT. Demos to be ready soon.

As much as I hate it, Jie Jie insisted that I must get my nails trimmed. How irritating since I tried to behave when she cleaned my ears... Though at times I tried to run away. Actually I dun feel safe letting her trim my nails cos she seems unsure too and there are times when they will bleed. Pain... But look at how she grabbed me. I was so tired trying to run away that I surrendered in the end. Luckily this time round she did a great job.

Jiu ming ah.... Gor gor came out of the room and laugh. Telling jie jie that I looked like I was doing what mapicur? banicu?

Hiak hiak... I actually fell asleep.. Jie jie thighs nice to lie on.
Recipe for the day!

Ingredients:
  • Seedless Guava
  • Chili slices
  • Orange peel
  • Lemon slices
Method:

Wash and slice guava into very small slices. Simply mix everything well with a little fine sugar. Wala! Ready to be served. Superfabulicious oh... We all couldn't stop eating..

Baby Ting is already entering K1 this year. Tot she would have fitted in fine since she attended pre-school there le. Was at ah ma's house today and she came too. Was abit surprised cos she lost alot of weight. Seems pretty drastic cos the last time I've seen her was in Gentings. Then she was still a plump baby. Aunt told me that she hasn't been eating well, crying everyday and finding excuses not to go school.

Ting: Mummy if I potty from school start to school finish how ah?

Seems like depression. Aunt had no choice but to get me to talk to her. Have to start the question elimination process to find the exact cause. Asked her things like:

  1. U like school?
  2. Do you have friends in school?
  3. Do you like them?
  4. Is your teacher nice?
  5. Study in school very difficult ah? <------- Bingo
Had to cajole, explain and getting her to express more. Aiyo.. that poor baby.. Had to hug hug her and talk. Finally managed to cajole her to eat dinner with me. Then had to 勾勾手 and make her promise to guai guai go school the coming monday. Know what she will tell her mama?
I want to go NTU like jie jie. LOL~~!
Erm... according to the Chinese lunar calendar, there's gonna be an extra 7th month. Does that mean the Hungry Ghost Festival has also presumably extended?

Almost cried while scaring myself to death. Was so so so darn worried just now la! Cai swallowed a part of a chicken wing... My fault too lor... for trying to take it from him making him swallow to prevent so. Was worrying if it was digestible or that could it lodge somewhere inside him. I shuddered as I keep thinking of the various scenarios. 越想越害怕, 越怕越是想哭, 自己吓自己. Cant help it cos he's such a precious darling. But thankfully, feeling more assured le. He seems alright for now. Shall continue to monitor him.
Introducing the IJ bear. Had it for some time le, just never really took a pict of it. See that badge! I love it so much hahaha... Its the one with the blue house colour de (Coincedentally my house colour too).

Mom pre-rent a car for the new year season.. How I wished bro had passed his driving exams so tat he can share the load. 1 whole week wor. Can imagine how tiring I would get at the end of it. Driving a manual one somemore. lolz.
隐形的翅膀

每一次 都在徘徊孤单中坚强
每一次 就算很受伤也不闪泪光
我知道 我一直有双隐形的翅膀
带我飞 飞过绝望

不去想 他们拥有美丽的太阳
我看见 每天的夕阳也会有变化
我知道 我一直有双隐形的翅膀
带我飞 给我希望

我终于 看到 所有梦想都开花
追逐的年轻歌声多嘹亮
我终于 翱翔 用心凝望不害怕
哪里会有风就飞多远吧

隐形的翅膀 让梦恒久比天长
留一个 愿望 让自己想象

MSN really got prob ma? How come pple see me as offline?? Jo also experienced that many times le.
Almost died again. The pedestrian lights were in my favour and I was walking casually across the road. Suddenly this car that was trying to make a right turn into my lane sped up so fast that I had only time to notice it very near. The driver din even noticed me (forget to turn on visibility mode ma?) till the very last moment. Think his car was like <1m away from me. I was super cool though (perhaps no time to react) cos I gave him a expressionless face while he looked on in shock. For a moment, I tot he would really hit me le. While other drivers on the road started making signs at him, I casually walked off with a sigh. Dunno why I was even feeling shocked or afraid.

Come to think about it.. Aiyo.. I haven make a will lor. LOL Like I have alot to go around indeed!
Can someone tell me if it was BM on that Hotel81 advertisement?
I wonder if this song's up in kbox le not. Nice. 越听越好听. kekeke.

隐形人

无论你肯或不肯
我都选择等
等到你结束好久
探险的旅程
要是没有寂寞陪衬
没有途中的灰尘
你怎会向往家门

你越是想要诚恳
其实越残忍
伪装不了你对我
漠视的眼神
你不许我听信永恒
不许我迷信我们
不许我奋不顾身

*
多想化成隐形的人
掩饰我伤痕
给你我的体温
好帮你驱走寒冷
看不见也能感受心疼

我想化成隐形的人
隐藏我的泪在翻滚
我在你凌乱世界
留下的指纹
对你是没心跳的一个吻
*

朋友都于心不忍
责备我愚蠢
但他们都回避我
执着的眼神
可知我对爱的虔诚
可知我迷信我们
可知我难得放任


* chorus
Boss: Feng.. Do you have some time?
Me: Sure. LOL
Boss: I'm sure its no fun
Me: Yeah. Fun!

After short meeting...

Boss: Many thanks
Me: Yeah Fun!

Colleague: Why you so happy? U stressed ah?
Me: LOL Yah lor! 自然反应.

苦中做乐 you know. Hm.. Since when I'm so Ah Q? Think its more likely that I'm going mad that's why. 看我会死得早. LOL
Yeah! Boss's gonna treat New Year Lunch... Saw the menu le... Slurpz!! 9 course neh.. Wahahahhaa
Was into this topic of grades and paper qualifications versus job employability. Seriously, I do wonder if this is very much the case right now. I tot it more in the past leh. I used to get very idignant when people start comparing grades to getting a good job.

I remembered heading for an interview once. The interviewer was sort of pretty happy with my grades. Of cos I was glad since it meant a closer step to getting the job. Then of all things he has to venture into how terrible some other interviewee grades were. Wah piang... Hit a raw nerve with me lor. I started to rebutt! Was pretty polite at first in reminding him that grades doesn't equate to good working attitudes, good work performance. Afterall, grades just meant that this person is very much exam oriented. Ended up with me raising my voice to the point of frustration trying to put across that exams are just written and unpractical stuff. Though grades may be a first guideline, everyone has the potential to be great employees! Aiyo.. I dunno wat went wrong with me that time la. Machiam felt injusticed for those who happen not to do well during exams to get condemned like dat. Of cos I din get the job.. lol Well, I dun think I would like to work with someone that exam result oriented anyway ba. A good employer is someone who knows his employees abilities and make full uses of his/her potential to bring out individual's best. Know how to work your employees. That's what I call an 英明的老板.

Then coming to the point of me being rude to that interviewer. I should have not let my indignance get the better of me la. Lousy EQ. Sometimes we have to learn to practise some form of 容忍. Though it may look like you are the weakling and everything, but you end up winning. I've read this example somewhere regarding the grass and the big oak tree (dunno if i have already mentioned before). It may look like the grass is nothing compared to the big oak tree, but in times of strong winds, the grass learns to bend with it while the big oak tree gets uprooted for remaining firm in its stand.

which then re-births from its ashes again
Yeah right! wish I was that legendary. hahahaha

单枪匹马作战
一个人的能耐有多大
从容能帮到多少
往肚里塞的苦水
累积了几斤重
终究解铃人还需系铃人

Crap 完了
Tada! Cheryl sent me this picture. Was doubting her words when she said she has a doggie at home. But then again, the background is definitely her hall lor! Its a pomeranian! So cute neh... A friend of her sis wants to sell it off >_<. Why would someone wanna sell this darling? See he's even smiling lor.

Dunno if cherrie's family will decide to keep it in the end. They worry about the responsibilities that will come. This is very true la. Its not easy to keep a dog. Apart from maintenance, you have to give it sufficient attention like you will with ur companion rather than treat it as a play toy as and when you need it.
