內省不疚

Just now was at Orchard Road. This little girl came across us and suddenly halted me. So pleaded and begged me to buy her roses which costs $10. A bit the ex huh, but since it's festive season and for charity......... So be it lor.

I wasn't in the mood to buy her roses then, so I told her that I'll be back later to buy. And I TOOK LIKE 10 MINS TO CONVINCE HER. Oh well. So she said okay, she'll be there at about 6.30pm.

I went to Kino and bought a book. I actually kept my promise and went to the place at 6.30pm. Then I sat down a read my book with tea beside me. Then the sky turned dark. It was 7 already. I decided to return to camp.

Oops. No flowers after all.


Moral of the story: Too bad if you can't believe me, I always keep to my promises.

Just spent my Christmas in Pulau Batam with family. It's an awesome thing because I needed to relax and chill and also I've never been to Batam before. I've been to Bintan though and maybe next time I will share about my tragic Bintan experience one day before my A Maths Prelim Papers, heh.

Just don't understand how people can grab small mistakes people make into a big woohah. Making a mountain out of a molehill or something? Talking about racist remarks when the "culprit" was actually being partially correct? He may not have told the total truth but definitely he didn't lie. So what's wrong with that...?!



无暝无日思念会惊 心情无地藏
妈呀,他浓郁的嗓子,真的是用生命唱出来的 :D

A year ago, I resumed my journey to achieving Sergeanthood. It was a time of uncertainty. I didn't know whether I could still pull through. But looking back from now, certainly, I did.

Back were the days, where those new cadets were wondering what a LAOJIAO Corporal was doing here with a Green Beret. And those were the days, where I shared stories of the jungles and hills with my course-mates. And indeed those were the days, where we quell the fear of making our faces look like watermelons and do presentations amidst time constraints and deep intense pressure. 事实证明了,一切的得来不易,只会让对它更加珍惜。


我坐在床前 望著窗外 回憶滿天
生命是華麗錯覺 時間是賊 偷走一切
七歲的那一年 抓住那隻蟬 以為能抓住夏天
十七歲的那年 吻過他的臉 就以為和他能永遠

有沒有那麼一種永遠 永遠不改變 擁抱過的美麗都 再也不破碎
讓險峻歲月不能在臉上撒野 讓生離和死別都遙遠
有誰能聽見

我坐在床前 轉過頭看 誰在沉睡 那一張蒼老的臉 好像是我 緊閉雙眼
曾經是愛我的 和我深愛的 都圍繞在我身邊
帶不走的那些 遺憾和眷戀 都化成最後一滴淚

有沒有那麼一滴眼淚 能洗掉後悔  化成大雨降落在 回不去的街
再給我一次機會 將故事改寫 
或欠了他一生的 一句抱歉

有沒有那麼一個世界 永遠不天黑
星星太陽萬物都 聽我的指揮
月亮不忙著圓缺 春天不走遠 
樹梢緊緊擁抱著樹葉 有誰能聽見

耳際 眼前 此生重演 是我來自漆黑 而又回歸漆黑 
人間 瞬間 天地之間 下次我 又是誰

有沒有那麼一朵玫瑰 永遠不凋謝  永遠驕傲和完美 永…

Malinger!

Malingering is a medical term that refers to fabricating or exaggerating the symptoms of various disorders for a variety of motives, including financial compensation; avoiding work or military service; obtaining drugs; or simply to attract attention or sympathy.

Sometimes I'm really glad and thankful that I'm so cheena. At least I can share the virtues of 岳飞 文天祥 and 于謙. I know my purpose. Of course my garang-ness have eroded through time, and with our Service Motto of SLEEP THROUGH SKILLS, obviously the watermelon-faced will evolve into the 朝九晚五-type office worker.

If being in the Force have been so miserable and since it has all along been an obligation, why not just migrate and leave this place for good? No one owes you a living anyway, you might just be happier. As far as I know, I eat sleep shit here, and this is where I belong. I've been grateful for what my family and I have acquired, in comparison to our past.

It'll be a matter of time for you understand the tru…

Everyone knows, that I kept a kitten. But the kitten passed away on Saturday. It died so cold and stiff.

I tried hard to raise it. I disciplined myself to wake up at odd hours just to feed it and change it's hot water bottle, which I used as a substitute to its mama's warmth.

Definitely something went wrong somewhere, but I don't know where and I don't know how.
And keeping an abandoned newborn kitten in Camp, is just something not anyone will do.




Good bye, and see you next life.

菩提本无树,
明镜亦非台。
本来无一物,
何处惹尘埃。
我不信佛,但是如果把世界当作空的,世间万物就是一个空字。心若本来就是空的话,就无所谓抗拒外面的诱惑,任何事物从心而过,不留痕迹。一切的妄想执著,其实都是梦幻泡影。

很显然,我对精神层面的重视绝对超越对于物质的追求。正如我在前文所言道, 心灵空虚者,即便家财万贯又有何用呢。

This song is called Chu Chu by moumoon, and it's damn cute. Just look at her luscious lips!





Okay. This post isn't about a girl with cute pink lips.
It's about taking trains.

I always liked buses and trains since young. I can always remember which bus goes where and recall all the stations along a train line etc. Just a living street directory and bus guide.

But I've never had a serious trip on the train proper, like 火车 instead of 地铁 or 捷運. I did travel from Xi'an to Beijing when I was 6. Or was it Guangzhou instead? See, I can't even remember.


So I was in Taipei, and decided to go Tainan with my travel-pal Pak Chuen.
First, you need to take the MRT to Taipei Main Station 台北車站.

台北車站 is unique because it is a three-in-one station: the High Speed Railway 高鐵, the MRT 捷運, and the Taiwan Railway 台鐵.











So we moved on to the High Speed Railway (HSR) platform.
The advertisements are all very cute! 




The HSR Stations are all very high-tech... They all come with Wi-fi and …

人間の心の中に闇があります。 人間の正体と真意は不明です。 人間は闇を恐れます、だから、炎で隅を燃やします。

If you keep thinking about unhappy things, you'll always be unhappy.
Give optimism a try, you might like it and be addicted to it!

昨天,一位许久不见的同班同学突然打电话来。
一阵寒暄问暖后,他问晚上有没有空一起吃饭。
他说现在有做些生意,很久没有跟老朋友联络,很是挂念。
自己已经听出了一点端倪,但是还是给了他那个Benefit of Doubt

茶余饭后,他就开始推销自己的事业了。
我有一点expected,所以也就听进去了,反正自己到最后一定不会买账。
我,毕竟,是有原则的。
或者也可以归类为stubborn啦。

他就说道:“小时候很多人都梦想有大房子,很有势咧!”“很多人都梦想有辆跑车,很有势咧!”“大家梦寐以求的工作,就是翘脚慢活却又能赚大钱!”“你要用一辆mercedes追美眉,还是用一辆哦普普通通的Nissan Sunny?”
幹,我从小就知道勤俭是种美德(虽然存了20年也没有多少,哈哈哈)。
我也真的没有这种爱慕虚荣的心态。Being Attention-seeking is one thing, Vanity is another.

[29/12/11: Oh, now got this new concept... The boss will personally come down to "guide" and "nurture" 10~30 new talents but this is only limited period of time... It's a great opportunity not to be missed! 老板亲自指导喔……!

I don't really care if your boss 指导 or not. In fact he should, since all you guys are rolling money in for him. He is the greatest 金主, who doesn't need to do much and wait for money to be generated based on commissions...]


没有钱,我的确无法过活。
但是,用金钱爱好相比,我宁可选择爱好
当然啦,它的前提context是我得有一点点钱。But then again, Architect哪里会赚不到钱的……?
更何况,在参观过台北设计大…

I have cui English, and I often break English words into components like the way Chinese words break up into characters. :D


Hasn't been able to catch up with blogging lately. Too busy in the barracks I guess. In case you guys don't know yet I've FORMALLY extended my service for my nation (at the request of my boss, of course) so very soon I'll be a THIRD YEARSOLDIER hohohoho. The pay is still the meagre sum, I'm doing this solely for my boss because he has been nice to me so far. Of course I could have F-ed off and just leave the force, but not a very nice thing to do lah huh. I've always tried to be nice even though I behave otherwise. Hahaha.

So yesterday actually I went to watch 那些年 again with Weesiang. Poor fella no one to watch with ah? Okay lah this movie is better watched with people with the same gender. And same maturity as well. 有些许黄色镜头哦,呵呵呵。

Watching a movie twice is no big deal, I've watched 海角七号 seven times and I'm still proud of it. 电影就跟故事…

Went to watch 那些年 with Dian Feng and Zhihao. 电影在台湾放映的时候就已经听说它有多么多么好看,没想到在这里想找几个人来看还这么难。中文片有那么难看吗,还是因为看不懂……?

Anyway电影人物的诠释挺好的,个个都很生动,配角跟主角的互动关系很生动,真得很像我们以前在学校里读书那样。哈哈 只是以前我们可不敢这么顽皮哦。

看完电影,心情总是还会沉浸在那个电影的”氛围“里面。话说这位柯先生追女生追了那么旧,最后就这么放弃了,真的是令人扼腕,惋惜啊。最傻的是他,最有勇气的,其实也是

其实,不管结局如何,有尝试过,就是有guts的表现。
只是,像他能够大大方方的接受结局(的残酷),有点不可能吧……?




回到现实生活中,我能不能像他一样,脸皮那么厚的面对一切呢?
就让二十年后的自己回头看好了。
