The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

People run away from the things their afraid of. After expressing my thoughts to some 'acquaintances' I got the feeling that I hit a nerve with my comments. This somebody started behaving quieter than usual. My theory? When somebody knows you're right, their too caught up in denial to admit their mistake. Hence, they began acting out on you because they were too immature to face the truth and you just shoved it in their face. If you've got the balls to say or do something, then have the guts to man up to it and face the facts. Twisting your words may suppress your guilt but it won't remove it. Why make some trivial practical joke bigger than it should be!

I've come to experience many people in my years and I've seen 'The Good', 'The Bad', and 'The Ugly'.

The GOOD are ones with proper etiquette and social responsibility. They basically have morals and live by a code of conduct. They don't hold grudges and are not very petty.

The BAD are ones who know what they want and go for it whether it means hurting somebody in the process as long as it makes them look good. However, they do it openly and not in a way that stabs you in the back, i.e. they will tell you off if they have to.

The UGLY to summarize in one word are, 'hypocrites'. They are two faced and will not admit to their mistakes. Their a loaded gun, appearing to be your friend but what their really doing is collecting Intel/ ammunition and will use it to their advantage if the time ever comes for it.

It's not that difficult to begin with the truth. Maybe something you said or did could have just been a practical joke and twisting your story or pointing to others will just end you up shooting yourself in the aftermath. Honesty is the foundation of any kind of relationship or friendship.

Shifting Gears

Things change and people change. Relationships can shift gears as quick as lightning. And the craziest thing comes from cracking your head trying to figure out that moment where it all changed. What was the one word, one thing, one variable that could have made a great enough impact that stirred a roller coaster of emotions.

You are in the driver's seat so take the wheel and don't let go. Life is so indefinite. Feelings like people, come and go. As much as you'd love to take control and have everyone see your way, we've gotta take reality more seriously. At some point you start to wonder if it was all worth it. What were you really doing it for and if your actions even mattered. The only constant is you.

The stars above give some hope. No matter what happens, the world continues spinning and life will be better off with or without you. There's too much crazy in the world to take things too seriously. Kickback and sip your tea. The world's not going anywhere, just you. Swing from tree to tree. Bust out of that shoe box and catch some waves.

My Muse I Just Can't Refuse

She's so foreign it's somewhat bohemian
Her words speak a different language but her eyes beg to differ
Can I go on breathing life with crazy shenanigans?
Or is this playing with fire and leaving a trail of litter...

Living high living with pride
I sometimes get tangled in a web of lies
This is crazy my mind's a little hazy
You're my muse I just can't refuse

I get addicted at every word and thought about her
Put a crush o' meter and it would smoke through the roof
Most nights I crash in with her
She keeps me with her... people now think I'm aloof

Relationships Are Like A Test

When things seem broken
Misunderstandings emerge from the horizon
Torn apart by hate
Darkness gloom ever near the gate

The air that gives me life
The wheels that drive me to strife
The wind that pushes me as a guide
I can't help but see you as my wife

Relationships are like a test
It grows and starts a pounding in your chest
You study and try your best
Then you reap the rewards and be blessed

We're all still young
Let's live and have fun
Let our hair down
And soak up the sun

Innocence is insanely overrated
Don't take away our fun and have it terminated
Brothers and sisters starting a fire
Keep this up there's no way we can go higher

Just gimme more
I wanna live forever
Photos will be our memories true
Can hardly wait 'till next year

This Shit Is Fucking Bananas!

What goes up, must come down
It's such a strain to toy with so much waste
Neither here nor there
Tell me am I far or am I near?

You think I'm strong, but I'm weak
You think I love, but I hate
You think I'm right, but I'm wrong

Violence is never the answer
Neither is giving me the cold shoulder
There's so much struggle
Why am I so fickle?

Gerri: 'My mom walked from Vivo to Imbiah'

Bob: 'Huh how did she walk all the way to India?'

Me: 'Imbiah the station in Sentosa, doofus!' Haha

Bob: 'Oh no wonder. I thought she wants to go there to be like Gandhi and spread open the sea!'

Me: 'Hmm, that wasn't Gandhi... it was Moses!'

Save Yourself Before You Can Save The World!

'Don't wanna be this other person who let's everything get him down
Don't wanna look back and regret things with a frown
The hurt can be so bad all you can think about is the eagerness to drown
Love and hate can come and go but look for what's real or it will all be blown.'

Fack Everything Else!

Retired from the room at 6.30am
Filled with mixed feelings
Stepped into my car and 'Luxurious' plays

As I drive out it begins to rain
The sky is simply breath-taking
I wind-down the window
This nonchalant feeling is undeniably awesome
It shouts 'Fuck everything else!'
I just wanna let go and not wait anymore

What It's Like To Be An Entrepreneur!

You may not always be successful at times
But that don't mean you fall and let it slide
It's not always about the money
But the priceless lessons and satisfaction

-don't want your charity, don't try to cheat me-

Indie, Indian or Just Way Too Blonde?

Welcome to breakfast with Addison and Cor and I @ the Garden Slug!

Me: 'Looks like many 'atas' people come to this cafe.'
Addison: 'Yes and the indie ones too.'
Me: 'I think I fall under the indie category.'
Cor: 'Nonsense uh you! Then why doesn't your Facebook location say come from India?'
Me: 'How is indie and india related?'
Cor: 'Huh? Don't they mean the same thing?'
Me and Addison: -____- HAHAHA!

Don't Fight This Feeling

Upbeat and ain't grumpy, that's how life should be
Wondering what's next comes with such a high expense
So don't wake me up 'cause I'm feeling kinda funky

There's something about you that's got me so high
Got a strange feeling whenever you're by my side
I wanna explode and run my hands up your thigh
Don't fight this feeling and we can get lucky tonight

Some optimism is crucial right about now
What do you say if I take you round town
I'm never leaving home without my lucky charm

Soak Myself In Bourbon

Neither here nor there
Can't blame you you misconceive me
Hardly even know enough to share
Been here been there tried and tried so see

Soak myself in bourbon
Think I'm gonna gonna drown
Get me a glass and another gallon
I never learn from my mistakes whenever I fall down

Just let go and let me be
Don't hold back no more frowning
Throw yourself in the air
And you will see how the world is free

Running Free With No Place To Be

My brain is too active, a little to repetitive

Too many dreams, too many thoughts

Running free with no place to be

Likely to pay the high price of deranged custody

There's no guarantee as to whatever may be

Living life to the extremes, I'm prone to insanity

Grinding Lindsay Lohan

I wanna be a blonde haired guy so freakin' bad

Do all the stupid things I always do

I wanna be on the cover of People magazine

Grinding next to Paris & Lindsay

Every time I find a guy

I slip and land right on my ass

A different party every night oh

I swear the world better prepare

For when I'm a blonde bimbo

Just For Leisure!

Vitamin C - Graduation (Friends Forever) comes on the radio.

Corey: 'This is S Club 7 right?
Me: 'No! It's Vitamin C!
Corey: 'Oh, sorry... I don't listen to all this rubbish!'
Me: 'Then why are you dancing to the song?'
Corey: 'I'm singing another song in my head!'
Me: 'Oh, okay.'

10 seconds later... Corey starts SINGING OUT LOUD.

♫ As we go on
we remember
all the times we
had together

Me: 'Didn't you say that this song was rubbish!
Corey: 'I'm singing another song!'
Me: -_-

@ Cassie's CNY party
@Dom's CNY party
This Chinese New Year week was a good break from all the stress and studies.

I think I may be busier than most Chinese people on their own holiday! Haha!

Played a lot of poker and black jack. Did good on some nights and not so well on some.

Need more luck and some help to kick this addiction.

When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going

A few weeks ago Nikki passed me Seasons 1-3 of 90210. I began watching it and thought the show was terrible but nonetheless still continued on - Because I like drama and they do have some good writing in the series. However, they need better actors.

The characters in the series are out of control and have no freakin' sense of loyalty. The worst character is Dickson. If you've watched the show you would know how incredibly pretentious he is. He is the epitome of the kind of friend, brother and son you wouldn't want to have.

Although some can't act they make up for it with their good looks and very seductive personality i.e. Adrianna. She's the prettiest one in the show and her character has that typical Hollywood cycle - Drugs, rehab, pregnancy, cheating, etc. Not a good role model but a sight for sore eyes nonetheless.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going
It really bothers me that each friend is always abandoned when they've hit rock bottom. Their compadres rather have nothing to do with them than to be there and go through the rough patches in life with their friend. Isn't that the process of growing and building the friendship/ relationship?

The power of love
The show is a testimony that relationships never last. Love, loyalty and lust (go figure) doesn't mean a thing. What happened to being there for each other through thick and thin? Words are meaningless and temporary is the conclusion one can make. They do talk about being open and trusting each other but when it all boils down to that moment to prove that they do indeed TRUST one another, they hide and they take shelter to save face. Seriously, I know it can be hard but at least try!

Everybody deserves a second chance
The show does emphasize here and there about how you can make amends and prove your loyalty to the one you love and be part of them. I'm such a sucker for second chances and as much as I hate to admit it, I've got a soft heart that just melts when I see that. You can't stay mad at someone you've been so close to before. Time heals everything.

White Winged Messengers

Not too young, not too old. What is the right age to start thinking about marriage. They say girls think about it from when they were already very little. However, it never crosses the mind's of men until their mature or old enough and tired of playing the field. Like Chandler Bing from FRIENDS, marriage acts as a repellent and gives rise to opportunity to get out of the relationship

But anyways, this weekend we got a chance to catch up with an old childhood friend who just got married. Michael is the second from our childhood clan to get 'hitched'. Actually, they got married exactly 5 years ago by ROM but now they've decided to have a big celebration with family and friends since they didn't have an elaborate one yet to mark the occasion.

The wedding or renewal of vows was held at Crowne Plaza hotel. Congratulations to Mike and Mitz!

'White winged messengers,
set free today,
are sent with love and blessings
that will never fade away.'

Own Time, Own Target!

Who says there's nothing to do on this island? In fact, in my opinion, there's so many ways one can enjoy and easily entertain themselves or visitors. But anyway, I bring this up because last week we celebrated Deb's 21st birthday with a round of Laser Tag. It is without a doubt, strenuous but so bloody enjoyable.

With all the targeting and live range experience in the army, it must have really paid off. We did have a round of paint ball in BMT back in December which did not quite go so well. I got hit twice, one on the neck and another on the butt. Trust me it is not very nice. Laser Tag on the other hand only involves a shock/ vibration when you are hit by the 'enemy'. Overall, I ranked 3rd among the whole party of 30! Yes, I'm so modest I know. Haha!

Happy 21st, Debs! Glad you had a rockin' good time!

Camaraderie Of Soldiers

An overwhelming feeling of nostalgia hit me just when I threw my jockey cap in the air. That moment every recruit awaits while going through their Basic Military Training (BMT) as it signifies the completion of our BMT and on to the next phase of our training. My batch fortunately was lucky enough to have our Graduation Parade at Marina Bay on the floating platform after a very demanding 24Km route march. Come to think of it, it was more of a sight-seeing experience marching by the airport, east coast park and marina bay. I will never forget the people and friends I've made this last 9 weeks of enduring pain and going through the struggles of the military life together.

Some things I'll never forget;
  1. Digging a shell-scrape for the first time at field camp
  2. Turnout at 4 in the morning for our rifle collection
  3. Making a bon fire and sitting under the gotex jacket to block the rain and keep warm with my section
  4. Entrusted as Platoon i/c for a week
  5. Directing the National Education day showcase for our company
There's definitely more that just these 5 but for now that's all I'm gonna list down.

See No Evil, Speak No Evil, Hear No Evil.

Deception, the ultimate evil.

We need to have more saintly people around us, strictly speaking just plain honesty would be great. What can we do if we see that something is not right. If people we are surrounded by are so fucked up and deceptive. Should we close one eye and pretend everything is fine. But when you ignore a problem, the problem is only going to get bigger.

Help me to understand how someone can be so twisted, shallow and unappreciative. Somebody who claims to care so much and wants to avoid hurting another party BUT goes ahead and does it anyway.

I've concluded that people today are missing what they call good old SINCERITY and APPRECIATION.

PS: I'm not claiming to be a Saint if anybody gets that idea.

It's A Wonderful Life!

'I thought of you again today.
Reminded me how with time I've changed.
If you only knew what you gave to me...

Our time meant so much to me, now you can't be found.
You were the first I trusted.
I learned what love is, when we were just kids.

Thank you for those special moments.
You'll always be here in mind.
Did you know you changed my life.
I'm thankful for those times. Thankful for those times.
It's a wonderful life.'
