Which Sesame Street Character Are You?

You are part Oscar the Grouch. You can be gruff and often have a chip on your shoulder. Despite your intelligence, manners (and cleanliness) are of little importance to you. At the same time, you have a few very close friends who you allow to see a softer, kinder side of you.
You are part Elmo. You are lovable and ticklish, and always inquisitive. Sometimes, though, your excitement about the world can make you seem childish, naive, and occasionally irritating to others.

A man rushed up looking lost, he asked us if we sees anyone with a blue tee running away with a bag.

Left his car keys in the bag,and head back to see one guy picking up and when he shouted, the guy ran away with his bag.He's very worried, there's everything inside the bag,his ID card,wallet,car keys,house keys,and he's wife is currently overseas.

What happen if the guy heads to his home when his wife reaches home?
Now he need someone to fetch him to his mother-in-law's house to get the spare keys.

The police are now doing their patrol within the area,searching for the guy in blue that matches his description.
This gentlemen in his late 40s to 50s, approaching you telling the story.
You rejected his request for a hitch, but you can drop him at the nearest police station.But he seems lost,and ask if you can lend him 20bucks for cab fare.
And he promised to return you when everything is settled.

Now,picture the above again.
How true is it?

Well, sounds so true.I gave him 20bucks for a cab later.

Another man(a delivery man) approaches me and stopped him,explained to me he gave Mr 'lost' 20 bucks earlier on.
And it's more than sufficient to reach his destination.

Hmmmm...something fishy, when obviously "west coast" & "chai chee" is two separate location apart.Mr 'Lost' replied it's not enough,not enough...

Now,i gave a look without kindness & words. He returned us the cash.
Not that the cash bothers me that much,it's the breach of trust we gave to him.

Just wondering if i did gave him a hitch, does he goes to another location to get 'robbed' again?

It's sad to encounter but looking on the brighter side, i've learnt something i can't pick up on the pages as much as i wanted to.
Both me and the man who gave him our "Trust".

I did not see him again,upon return to the location 5 mins later.
Trust...What a wonderful world for someone doing the 'subject' to be ripped of.

Reminds me of some great memories,
and the airport was my second home back then

Trust.Years back I've lots.
I broke her heart, i chose career.
She's happier now with another,and I'm glad.

My philosophy is simple,

Slot the box

Attended some function,nothing much interest me particularly except for the gathering & the food on the table.Did some planning earlier on, and rather than leaving it as a soft copy version,I've it written on the board.
Basically planned out my entire schedule for the month December, fully occupied which is good.
Little time for leisure,negative...

So the horoscope prediction are for someone else instead.
"It's here nor there..."

Try breaking up the white-board into many little boxes,with each indicating a day for the entire month and watch your empty slots getting lesser and lesser.

So finally the time has come to slot all my commitments into my second board, to create more time for others.

A woman who has just separated with her husband spends her first day packing her belongings into boxes, crates and suitcases.

On the second day, she had the movers come and collect her things.

On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room table by candlelight, put on some soft background music, and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar and a bottle of Chardonnay.

When she had finished, she went into each and every room and deposited a few half-eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar, into the hollow of the curtain rods.

She then cleaned up the kitchen and left.

When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the first few days. Then slowly, the house began to smell.

They tried everything, cleaning, mopping, and airing the place out.

Vents were checked for dead rodents, and carpets were steam cleaned.

Air fresheners were hung everywhere.

Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters, during which they had to move out for a few days, and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting.

Nothing worked!!!

People stopped coming over to visit, repairmen refused to work in the house & their own maid quit eventually

Finally sick of the stench, they decided to move. A month later, even though they had cut their price in half, they could not find a buyer for their stinky house.

Word got out, and eventually, even the local realtors refused to return their calls.

Finally, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place.

The ex-wife called the man, and asked how things were going.

He told her the saga of the rotting house.

She listened politely, and said that she missed her old home terribly, and would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for getting the house back.

Knowing his ex-wife had no idea how bad the smell was, he agreed on price that was about 1/10th of what the house had been worth, but only if she were to sign the papers that very day.

She agreed, and within the hour his lawyers delivered the paperwork.

A week later the man and his girlfriend stood smiling as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home, including the curtain rods.

Young and pretty lady wishes to marry a rich guy

Fantastic reply from a financial person...
A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:

Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?

I'm going to be honest of what I' m going to say here. I' m 25 this year. I'm very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above. You might say that I 'm greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York . My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married? I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you? Among those I've dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit. If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden ( ? ) , $250k annual income is not enough.

I'm here humbly to ask a few questions:
1)Where do most rich bachelors hang out?
(Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)

2)Which age group should I target?

3)Why most wives of the riches is only average-looking? I 've met a few girls who doesn 't have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys

4)How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend?
(my target now is to get married)

Ms. Pretty

Here's a reply from a Wall Street Financial guy:

Dear Ms. Pretty,
I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyze your situation as a professional investor. My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I'm not wasting time here.
From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain. Put the details aside, what you're trying to do is an exchange of "beauty" and "money" Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square. However, there's a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can't be prettier year after year. Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It's not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worried 10 years later
By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a " trading position" . If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term ... same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or " lease" . Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income. This has better chance than finding a rich fool.
Hope this reply helps. If you are interested in "leasing" services, do contact me

Beautiful Monday, the Best.

Finished much of my allocated tasking, and completed even more than targeted.
Finally out for a break tonight with the bachelors except a few.In fact i just got home from the gathering,a great location, nice food and beers. Argh....Great. =)

your friend is the bartender, he brings you around,up and down. He gives you an introduction to all the little pieces of decoration, it just brought more enlightenment to my memory bank. Halo...

Never forget the conversation with Martin,Ronald,Keano,Daniel & Mabel.Great fun after a tiring day.I'm living finally after a while.You're right, if i don't work harder...i will not enjoy my laughter fully, which I'm glad i did tonight.

Thinking back....(bubbles floating in mid air)

This evening,while on the way home accompanied by some light music, a truck ahead gives a hazard signals on a one-way traffic, indication of cyclists cycling on the road under very dim condition,salutes you for that... We need more of you.Another was while waiting for the train to pass the track,and the barrier to lift once again.Observing 2 foreign workers sitting behind a truck, observing them right from behind, well nothing else catches my attention anyway.

Seems so tired after a day of hard work,i shall call them Mr Left & Right instead of A/B.After some minutes of silence between the two, obviously sitting right beside one-another yet looking at different direction, with nothing interesting in sight.
Mr Right took a peek at Mr Left, and therefore handed over a biscuit, insisting Mr Left to accept the offer. And well Mr Left did, they started talking and certainly created so much of a difference in a otherwise zero conversation during that period,
just imagine if Mr Right didn't start making the first move(biscuit giving), Mr Left won't.Simple as that and all these happening in the first place just doesn't exist.

Just watch the transition, sit beside me and you be amazed at the before & after picture.
How the body language tells most, if not all of the story.

At times, it just takes a little more extension to make people feel better.
What you did today Mr strangers, you've made my day as well without knowing.

My Monday, the Best Monday.


Taurus Capricorn Compatibility(

Taurus as well as Capricorn believes in a practical approach towards life. Both of them see the life as it is and live in the real world. As far as the philosophical and spiritual aspects of life are concerned, they show great compatibility. Since they are so seriously focused towards all the aspects of life, they may fail to enjoy everyday as it comes. The love match between these two zodiac signs will be based on mutual reliability, trust and consistency. On the monetary front also, there will be no incongruity as neither of the two is prone to extravagance.

The firmness, ambitions and calmness of the Goat will attract the Bull, who will attract the former with his strong determination, dependability and strong family ties. Taurus will always support a Capricorn in realizing his dreams and will always be there to pat him on the back, when he attains them. The bull will never ever feel insecure in the company of the Goat and same holds true for the latter. However, both of them have to learn the technique of enjoying themselves or monotony may creep up in this, otherwise perfect, zodiac match.

Taurus Man and Capricorn Woman---Taurus woman can find the perfect soul mate in the Capricorn man. They share most of the personality traits and those that are inconsistent are not at all important. Her love, trust and loyalty will make him relax a bit and show his real self. At the same time, she knows how to tickle those hidden funny bones of his. In return, he will make her feel as the most important part of his life. She will never ever feel lonely with him, as his shoulder will always be there to lean upon. Apart from some minor differences, this love match is just the best!

I'm Water!
Water is often described as dull and flavorless, and you might be, too. Your ideal night out is a night a in, and it should stay that way because you might not be able to handle yourself around a crowd of people having fun. Not that the library isn't fun. If you drink at all, you probably spend most nights as the designated driver, and most mornings cleaning the puke out of your passenger seat. However, you do have your life together, and a great career ahead of you. Wuss...

"You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it"---J M Barrie

"I'm "Micah Sanders"!The purest character, you would do more to help the world if you weren't so darn tiny. Some see the glass half empty you're so positive, you see a river overflowing. You have a wonderful family life (at least half the time), and probably took this test without even turning the computer on."

"Tarot(The Devil)---The Devil represents wild behaviour and reckless abandon. This is a card synonymous with temptation and addiction. At its worst, this card embodies evil, but at its best represents ambition, impulsiveness and pure devotion. You should be acutely aware of the destructive influences in your life and gather the strength to overcome them. "

"You might resist change, are overly materialistic, selfish, or fail to recognize your own self-imposed limitations, addictions, or hang-ups. There are hidden things about you that you may not be acknowledging, or you may believe that if you deny, escape, laugh them off, or cover them up, they don't exist. They are there, however, with you always, and won't go away until you resolve to free yourself from unhealthy, restrictive, dysfunctional, excessive, or obsessive desires, secrets, or situations. You are the only one with the power to overcome, make the choice, accept responsibility, or see the light, but you just don't get it yet, and may blame others for your lack of control. You know you shouldn't, but you do. You need a reality check before the chains tighten and it is too late."

"The animal symbol applied to Capricorn is the goat. Unlike the dependent, creative and countrified Goat in the Chinese horoscope, the Capricornian mountain goat is a striver and a loner, an ambitious, deliberate achiever and an adorable person to know. It's true that Capricorns can be bossy and self-confident in the extreme. But probe a stiff-upper-lipped Capricorn and you'll find there lives under all that tension and apparent angularity a sentimental and warm-hearted darling.The way to handle Capricorns is to show them from the beginning that you are as strong and self-willed as they are. And should you not feel sufficiently strong and self-willed, you'd better pick on someone your own size. Capricorns prefer competition. The Capricorn subject is always either on top of the heap or moving-slowly but certainly-toward the summit of his field. Like tall evergreens, they withstand the snows and heat, the wind and rain. Capricorns are winter people. They can hold their heads higher longer than all the others and somehow never appear to be pushing.In general the Capricorn subject is as rigid in his body as in his high-minded principles. He may be good at games that demand corporal discipline, but in areas that call for supple smooth body movement, Capricorns are challenged. Capricorn children fall a lot. Capricorn adults are clumsy. You want to warn them, "Be careful. Watch where you're going. Take smaller steps. Slow down. Relax." It is of course impossible for Capricorn to relax. He is always on the qui vive, responsive to each new invitation to achieve.The Capricorn loves to entertain and adores food. He receives guests with a spirit of generosity in both the welcome he offers and the fare he prepares. Often, Capricorns make fantastic chefs and know how to cook the most complicated foods. Partly, this devotion to fine cuisine comes from the Capricorn's desire to please. But mostly the attention to food native to every Capricorn soul arises from pure joy in eating. Capricorn babies rarely have feeding problems. They chow down with gusto just about anything put within their reach.Success often comes to Capricorn because he was paying attention while everyone else was goofing off. But if, God forbid, he misses the boat -was not even goofing off and still fails-then the ordinarily well-arranged marbles inside the pretty Capricorn head begin to shift dangerously, and melancholy sets in. Capricorns hate failure.Capricorns are very conscious of the impression they make on others. They are allergic to vulgarity and bad manners. Society judges. Others of us may say, "What do I care for society? I am a free agent." Not your social-conscious Capricorn. If only for the sake of the gallery's approbation, Capricorn will conform.You can always count on Capricorns to come through in times of trouble or need. They are charitable to others and eager to assist those in difficulty or illness. Sometimes they are hard to reach emotionally and seem rather "pent-up" and stiff inside. But if you can break the hermetic barrier, you will be pleasantly surprised. Physical contact can be a bit on the bony side at first but the Capricorn's enthusiasm soon takes the edge off."

"Having a Life Path Number of 5 makes you a keen traveler with a love for freedom. Change is good in your life and is something you strive for. Your heightened curiosity, and love of life, keeps you on the move. Although, you are sometimes perceived as lacking discipline."

"Metal Mon-Persuasive and passionate, this Monkey is a warm person. He is successful due to his innate determination and ambitious nature. He works hard to climb the ladder of success and prefers to work alone. They are loyal employees, always prepared and tactful with answers and upper management. In love these Monkeys are just as loyal as well as loving and affectionate."

"In order to cope best with the difficulties of the year, adopt an attitude in accordance with the position of the star Thanh Long. This star will find himself this year in the sectors related to culture and thought. This will help you to grasp the sense of what you live, to understand thoroughly why you meet with a small failure from time to time and therefore to make a new start on a good basis."

"This year could not be dull if you indulge in work with energy and decisiveness. Tell yourself that the time of muddling through is now definitely over. The planetary ambience will be favorable to well-thought action, and you should certainly draw benefits from the ardor that you'll show in accomplishing your tasks. Strictly follow your work plan, without continually jumping from one thing to another like a kangaroo!"

"Monkeys, of all the other signs, are the most promiscuous. They are flirtatious and like to seek the attention of others to get what they want. They are easily bored and must be stimulated intellectually as well as physically in order to stay around for extended periods of time. The Monkey can be clever, mischievous and manipulative when pursuing a love interest."

"Fourth Trimester Nov 10 2007 to Feb 8 2008---The stars Luu Ha and Dia Vong will settle down in the sector of couple life. If you're already living in couple, your relationships with your mate will be very satisfactory, marked with sensuality and intellectual complicity. If you're living alone, an important encounter may take place. Open your eyes wide, for if you fall in love there'll be every chance that this will become a durable story."

"The MonkeyAt Work---A Monkey's good memory and his ability to adapt are two of his most prized possessions. He is intelligent and stoic, able to pick new trades up quickly and easily. Monkeys are also able to do all the work in half the time it takes someone else, but will charge you double what someone else would charge. As such, Monkeys generally take occupations in the world of finance, such as banking, stock exchange or accounting."

"Well Suited Monkey Occupations---Scientists, Engineers, Bankers, Accountants, Sales representatives, Market traders, Jewelers, Air traffic controllers, Couriers, Film directors, Critics, Buyers, Dealers"

"Monkeys are just as good as spending money as they are at making it. They can't really save it because it burns a hole in their pockets. Occasionally though, Monkeys should put a little away today for an emergency tomorrow."

"People are your priority. You know that the key to happiness is in the people around you and your relationships with them. You may be spiritual, and you will find that investing your time and energy into friends and family will bring you happiness in life. "

Being Born Again

"Too many think that you can go out and live the way you like: go to church on Sunday or perhaps go to some religious ritual that your church demands, and everything will be all right. But it won't. It's wonderful to be a member of the church; it's great to be baptized; it's great to be confirmed; but that alone is not enough. Jesus said, "You must be born of the spirit." You must be born again."

Bent--Matchbox twenty

If I fall along the way
Pick me up and dust me off
And if I get too tired to make it
Be my breath so I can walk
If I need some other love
Give me more than I can stand
And when my smile gets old and faded
Wait around I'll smile again
Should'nt be so complicated
Just hold me and then
Just hold me again

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together
You're breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent
If I couldnt sleep could you sleep
Could you paint me better off
Could you sympathize with my needs
I know you think I need a lot
I started out clean but Im jaded
Just phoning it in
Just breaking the skin
Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together
You're breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent
Start bending me
It's never enough
I feel all your pieces
Start bending me
Keep bending me until I'm completely broken in
Should'nt be so complicated
Just touch me and then
Just touch me again
Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together
You're breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent
Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together
You're breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent

The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
Theres no room
No space to rent in this town
You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck and
you're not moving anywhere
You thought you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace

Its a beautiful day
Sky falls you feel like
Its a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
You're on the road
But you've got no destination
You're in the mud
In the maze of her imagination
You love this town
Even if that does'nt ring true
You've been all over
And its been all over you
Its a beautiful day
Dont let it get away
Its a beautiful day
Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case
See the world in green and blue
See china right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out
It was a beautiful day
Dont let it get away
Beautiful day
Touch me
Take me to that other place
Reach meI know Im not a hopeless case
What you don't have you dont need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow
What you don't have you dont need it now
Don't need it now

Beatles-When i'm sixty-four

When i get older losing my hair,Many years from now.
Will you still be sending me a valentine
Birthday greetings bottle of wine.If i'd been out till quarter to three
Would you lock the door,Will you still need me, will you still feed me,When i'm sixty-four.
You'll be older too,And it you say the word,I could stay with you.
I could be handy, mendin a fuse
When your lights have gone.You can knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday mornings go for a ride,Doing the garden, digging the weeds,Who could ask for more.
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,When i'm sixty-four.
Every summer we can rent a cottage,In the isle of wight, if it's not too dear
We shall scrimp and save
Grandchildren on your kneeVera chuck & dave
Send me a postcard, drop me a line,Stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
Yours sincerely, wasting away
Give me your answer, fill in a form
Mine for evermore

Will you still need me, will you still feed me,When i'm sixty-four.

Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are
I had to find you, tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart
Tell me your secrets, and ask me your questions
Oh lets go back to the start
Running in circles, coming up tails
Heads on a silence apart
Nobody said it was easy
Oh its such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said that it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start
I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling your puzzles apart
Questions of science, science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart
Tell me you love me, come back and haunt me
Oh and I rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing our tails
Coming back as we are

Nobody said it was easy

Oh its such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I'm going back to the start

My value system

Taking more than i can handle recently, things are looking's either success or failure, nothing difficult to measure.Just some choices to be made here & there.

I've some friends who are really into deep thoughts recently,are there plenty of people out there with negative inputs on their way of living in this world?Yes there is we're sure, but there are more to celebrate about,than that in fact.

Talking about negative thoughts,my darkest moment in life.Just miss her so much,my granny.

My support, and when she turns to ash, that's where my world came crumbling down.My saddest moment in life, not the studies.Of course, it hurts not completing my studies just because of the month itself, and by achieving great results for projects isn't just enough when the last assignment is to be submitted, her condition got worsen, i left Singapore for a while.I had to be away from my final semester upon completion, that's when everything went rock bottom, for me at that moment.She got diagnosed with stroke, so basically one that can't talk isn't a great feeling especially you'll have difficulties moving your muscles let alone moving around,will never forget how she replied to me when i asked her if you wants any coffee,that's always my first morning greetings.

A decision I'm glad I've made & a choice i will not regret for the rest of my lifetime.
That's about a month for the funeral alone, .
When i reaches she was already lying on the bed, with her makeup on.My tears came rolling down my cheek within...5 secs? It's a lesson, and a painful one.

How fragile life is...i told myself, to be given a choice in all aspect, the happiest moment in life.I've my dark moment, to keep as experiences.Why leave memories to haunt us anyway, when you've experienced it and that's just enough to learn from it.Keep the good ones and move on

I've a mate, she's diagnosed with cancer, and perhaps in her late stages.
She's the only child,not married and has no children, adopted one cute baby instead.She lives her life in a very much fulfilling way,so much better than us. with her parents and daughter far away from here,where only Internet connection can link us together,(talk about the advancement on the satellite communication(Was that Geo orbit anyway).

She doing so much better than anyone I've encountered along the path, she sees matters in life in the most simplest way with that beautiful eyes of hers, and the basic approach to it.She blames no one, not even God on the trial she was put in.

"There are no difficult matters in life, only matters made difficult" she said.

Why should we complicate things in the first place, maybe we should learn to cherish people around more. Maybe we should, well why maybe??

There is no master switch, in which we can control with a red button or a stick, it's more of a form of duplex- communication.Just pictured how water molecules going through the membrane, while the rest are filtered out in the process? Isn't that very similar??

Now,convert that to thoughts and imagine you are the membrane, there's no way to get past unless we ourselves takes the first move to open the door.

And it all started from friendsters then msn plus fb.

Unmotivated at home and sick.She was listening to a song "Don't speak",i thought she's feeling depressed.That was 15 Sep.
18th Sep if i've fb, and we added.roses and he likes you a lot but u hate commitments
Lahu tribe costume i dared you
20th got your number & we got married because i sent u fishes
21st you're les,one min i love you, another min i fight with u cuz you're a nerd
(complicated love-hate relationship, darlin)alpha female dealing with life, work, studies, some sorta self-actualization

I've lost a friend i treasured a lot recently.chum...a mate because i deleted my previous posts

Yes, I'm stubborn, but she won.Someone very similar in terms of personalities,how we perceive things.More than that in fact,thinking,thought process and all the funny moments like the freaking Merlion at Sentosa,the time clock,nicknames,wrong page on the map,chocolate,Mac-Donald meals,book+card+music therapy,auntie session,class 95,music taste,heard your voice,heard you cried..etc.
We control our thoughts, or subconsciously.
what you said out today, you had it inside you all along.Don't you agree?
It's just some form of moment you are sharing with the viewers unconsciously.
There are more important things in life to place our concentration on, than to ponder at times.
It's good, not always.Just hope those around can live their life to the fullest, filled with happiness, joy and laughter.It doesn't hurt being childlike for a while, you can even be rustic.

Stop these sophisticated coaching.We don't stay in a nutshell for long, you've to come out sooner or later just like shellfish.

Swear if you want to and roll in the mud.You don't have to be sophisticated every now & then
Be a child.We cannot have a choice what comes our way, but we've a choice to be happy or sad.
You make your choice.
Choose one darling.

"One will never know one despite years of friendship together until one opens up.It happens to all people."

(Text carries the highest percentage of misinterpretation, follow by voice then face-to-face communication).i don't care for now.No sweet talks, just being myself, being straightforward in the softest tone for your understanding and to understand u.

i miss you chum

Tug O' War

Hug O' War
I will not play at tug o' war.

I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.

-- Shel Silverstein

With or without a choice.
Are there anything worth looking at through our naked eyes in our world?
Eye drops please...

Today, someone displayed to me.
The higher the ladder,the less secure you feel.
Don't you feel lonesome not being yourself during most of the hrs spent per day?
No things are complex enough, only via us, humans in silly formats.
Thank you for the conversation.

True Friend lyrics[VERSE 1]
We sign our cards and letters BFF
You've got a million ways to make me laugh
You're lookin' out for me; you've got my back
It's so good to have you around
You know the secrets I could never tell
And when I'm quiet you break through my shell
Don't feel the need to do a rebel yell
Cause you keep my feet on the ground

[CHORUS 1]You're a true friend
You're here till the end
You pull me aside
When something ain't right
Talk with me now and into the night'Til it's alright again
You're a true friend

[VERSE 2]You don't get angry when I change the plans
Somehow you're never out of second chances
Won't say "I told you" when I'm wrong again
I'm so lucky that I've found

[CHORUS 2]A true friend
You're here till the end
You pull me aside
When something ain't right
Talk with me now and into the night'Til it's alright again

[BRIDGE]True friends will go to the ends of the earth
Till they find the thing you need
Friends hang on through the ups and the downs
Cause they've got someone to believe in

[CHORUS 3]A true friend
You're here till the end
You pull me aside
When something ain't right
Talk with me now and into the night
No need to pretend
You're a true friend
You're here till the end
Pull me aside
When something ain't right
Talk with me now and into the night'Til it's alright again

You're a true friend [3x]

Pure sweat Tues

Pure exhaustion for the morning,spent 2 hrs doing more strength training than usual.
15 rounds on the track, that's equivalent to 6km in total.
Not much of a distance today, it's the amount of rounds around the track plus all the static exercises. Drops of sweat dripping down, that just sparkles like diamond under the sun.
How rich...

Time is getting real quick, 17 more days to come and it's not some walk in the park.
Na it's the same...Everyone owns the same time,just how much are you stretching yourself on all matters.
I saw the little dots, the loops,u-turns,uphill and down slopes with the whole stretch of route beyond line of sight on foot.
I've it pictured in my mind months back, it's getting exciting.Okay, who am i kidding...

One thing for sure...hunger after 8km.
This time round,my power gels are ready, I'd need 4 or maybe 5 & shopping time soon, oh yeah and the goodies collection coming round the corners.
Time to make adjustments to my eating and sleeping habits.17 more days...
More than 2, or rather less than 3 weeks.

i need motivation...

Heck that,songs will do.

Growing in numbers
Growing in speed
Can't fight the future
Can't fight what I see

People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars

Efforts of lovers
Left in my mind
I sing in the reaches
We'll see what we find
People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars
People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars

Slow slow slow, come come
Someone come come come
Even love is goin' 'round
You can't ignore what is goin' 'round

Slowly rebuilding I feel it in me
Growing in numbers
Growing in peace

People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars

People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars

People they come together(People they come together)
People they fall apart(People they fall apart)
No one can stop us now (No one can stop us now)
'Cause we are all made of stars(We are all made of stars)

We are all made of stars
People they come together
We are all made of stars(People they fall apart)
We are all made of stars(No one can stop us now)
'Cause we are all made of stars(We are all made of stars)

Mustafa trip on Bachelor evening(1111)

"A hungry man is a very angry one", don't you agree?

Well you see,it proves that shopping on an empty stomach does affects your judgement while browsing for items, & you may grab the wrong groceries you don't really need instead.
So watch it, fill your stomach before you empty your wallet in double-quick time.Hmm...need confirmation from the ladies.

Met up my old school mate,Mr Frank for some late night supper before the Mustafa visit
You're gaining weight Frankie!!

Great bowl of Yong Tau Fu(stuffed bean-curd), cost me 8 bucks.i don't know why,but just great.
I'm a happy man.Yummy.Not sure about the place, but will be back soon.

Time flies,brought plenty of stuff,CD-R(100),socks,bulb, ti-bits(cheezels,muruku,chips & snack-noodles) in great volume, yeah real great.
Finally paused for a sec before leaving the building,i forgot something for daddy.
Brought him a turbo.

Yeah, turbo...
Not the Porsche Frank is mentioning(Renting a Porsche in Germany since there's no speed limit on the Highway,& pls you need 2 credit cards beforehand, depending on your credit limits), never tried before,never will(on 'G' note), last was a very fair black lady from Steven.

It's a handy turbo I'm talking,the only turbo i can afford at this moment

"The Best a Man Can Get".
This slogan sounds just too familiar?The power of advertising. =)

Na, lets stay simple.

For you Dad.
Love you always,

Song for a Sunday Morning

Let's walk along
the street that is with u and Him
forget about the rest of the world watching

I'm with my bouquet & petals are dropping
my collars are wet, it's finally raining for a minute
Thanks God, it's a Blessing
take... take... take it Mr Bin
Thank you for accepting it silently
Plastics flowers just for you like daddy's courtship
i watered it silly me & you know it
Mummy kept it through the 70s,80s,90s.

I'm here after the game with broken bones surgeon
needs me badly and I'm leaving shortly, my luggage are ready the cab is waiting
sing some for me or once maybe
any songs just sing a song for me please
let me see you cry my friend
let me hear your voice
Just don't call me when you are smiling

New XxAxX...
A Cold XxAxX.

not not, some Morse code thing
Synchronising every bits.
dots and dashes are long gone,not not,
a Morse code for the past

Something going on,simply great if you believe in Him.
On-board Puffing Billy
Stretch your legs enjoying the mountain scenery
change the frequencies to the happy tunes
Forget 1980s it's history
Forgive the 90s they're nothing
Retro is okay, the dressing not the thinking
Not forgetting but not always remembering

Everything is going fine now on
Something is going on my friend,simply great if you believe in Him on a Sunday morning

My luggage are ready the cab is waiting
I'm leaving be strong baby
Let's walk along and leave a footprint
the street that is with u and Him
forgetting the rest of the world watching

East Coast Park 16km

Did a great 16 km jog with Brian, nice enough for some conversation along the way.
It's great having a company, you need one in fact.
As usual, I felt the need for food at about 8km...Even a small kit-Kat should do fine.
Thinking back about the little girl who gave me one, i took during SCM last year.

Thank you so much, you saved my life.

Especially when you're running past restaurant & food centres, with all the delicacies on display, it's a torture for me.Talking about endurance...

I was telling Brian about the needs & wants in life, and you only get to know your needs at your lowest point.Philosophy... =)

Frankly speaking, i don't really fancy putting on that pair of running shoes.
Just that it feels real great completing something you hate most, and nothing in life is impossible to achieve when you've the worst over. Plus it helps to maintain my fitness, if not improve.

More to come.

Well,we had some great food after that,while I'm concentrating on my food with all my heart & soul, Brian must be drooling over the ladies sharing our table.Okay...we shared theirs.
Great day spent, tomorrow will be even better. =)
I know.

Row Row Row the boat,
Hey you shouldn't stop,
He or She
Me and you
Row Row Row...
Me and Her
He or you
Coach says row...Wayne
Row Roll Row.

Did not sat a day on a Saturday.

Just got back from Deepavali celebration at Anand's house, more of a gathering for us. =)
Didn't stay long, guess the rashes are from the spicy prawns. It's a waste not to eat more, though i hate spicy stuff.

Brian must still be cycling away while i'm typing right now.
Gonna link up with him at East Coast Park shortly for a long run...

Deepavali Giving

That was on Deepavali Eve, my second pack of blood for this year.Everything went fine until the verification part, i couldn't produce my identification card, and that's the correct procedure though. Took some 20 minutes to get another photocopied.Long story, but i got the privilege to go first looking at the queue, as I'm indeed rushing for time.
It's my giving for this Deepavali, I'll continue so if I'm still able for a long time to come...many packs. =)
Let's talk about Deepavali
also known as "The Festival of Lights"(Diwali).
Celebration the victory of light over darkness & good over evil.The preparation itself can be very tedious indeed, but an effort worth after all indeed.Yes...(nod head)
Spring cleaning start weeks beforehand like how most celebrates yeah.
With cakes, little tidbits,and i was told there's murukku..that's the one on the hot list.
And favourite foods with new clothes of the departed are placed on top of banana leaves,as Hindus believe departed souls will return.
There's also the traditional oil bath, which the lady of the house will light a lamp with a Morning Prayer observed,followed by dotting the foreheads of the family members with holy ash that signifies life is not permanent, the ladies will wear the red pottu or bindi on their foreheads.Younger members of the family are then presented with gold or silver coins on a betel leaf as part of the blessings.
Pretty ladies will then decorate the entrance of the house with decorative designs made with coloured rice flour, called Kolam.
Oh yeah, temple visit comes next.
Of course, there's more than that in fact.Pretty interesting, kinda still remember the days in my college, where i did a presentation on Hinduism and Japanese tea ceremony to the class as a project we chose from the given list.
Just so lovely. Simple days...hanging out at Kinokuniya or NLB after skool.
The day where most celebrates, i chunk the flowers and the seeds.
Didn't purchase any books either after a long day.
I spent the special day drafting.
That's my celebration perhaps. =)
Sure did.
Let it develop
Let it flourish
Let it bloom by itself
Sure did.

Interesting magazine that caught my attention, while waiting for ginger-bread to quench her thirst for petrol, certainly worth a read.

Friendship you & me

Life is full of lots of up and downs,
And the distance feels further when you're headed for the ground,
And there is nothing more painful than to let you're feelings take you down,
It's so hard to know the way you feel inside,
When there's many thoughts and feelings that you hide,
But you might feel better if you let me walk with you
by your side,
And when you need a shoulder to cry on,
When you need a friend to rely on,
When the whole world is gone,
You won't be alone,
cause I'll be there,
I'll be your shoulder to cry on,
I'll be there,
I'll be a friend to rely on,
When the whole world is gone,
you won't be alone,
cause I'll be there.
All of the times when everything is wrong
And you're feeling like
There's no use going on
You can't give it up
I hope you work it out and carry on
Side by side,
With you till the end
I'll always be the one to firmly hold your hand
no matter what is said or done
our love will always continue on
Everyone needs a shoulder to cry on
everyone needs a friend to rely on
When the whole world is gone
you won't be alone cause I'll be there
I'll be your shoulder to cry on
I'll be there
I'll be the one you rely on
when the whole world's gone
you won't be alone
cause I'll be there
And when the whole world is gone

You'll always have my shoulder to cry on....-by Tommy Page

My first proper English song as a kid, attracted by the rhythm, my musical gateway other than do-re-mi, it's a cassette tape in blue i found in the workplace and playing since then.

I didn't know what it mean, now i do. For you chum.

On my own horizon

A revamp in progress, more for myself than anyone else.

I've returned to my former self with nil complication,

fell from grace

For double quick steps forward right after, it's essential.

to raise once again

Only in black, will the white seems bright.
