we'll sublime

以前曾经很好很好的朋友,现在却好像人间蒸发这样。

会不会觉得很惋惜呢?

如果时间就好像拍电影,我倒希望这个part直接按►►,把它forward跳过呢。

Tikus!

Found loads of treasures in Jurong Library yesterday. Like 1980 Singapore Street Directory and tons of Chinese books that's printed in 1960s. Those page yellow yellow one lah, brown spots here and there. 真是捡到宝了!

Screw you ants for eating my Subway lunch now I must go buy another one. GRRR.

Buku-buku

如果在冬夜,对着一本好书,加上壁炉边那昏黄的火光,纸页翻来窸窣作响,谁还要那焐不暖、冷冰冰的塑料硬壳和蓝光荧幕呢?

Do you really believe that people will spend more time reading because nowadays texts can be read off a screen?

2GB memory. Storing 2000 books. 书店倒闭的日子,恐怕快了吧。

“书本”从此没有了纸张的粗礪、油墨的气味、字体的凹凸、手指的温度,跟即用即丢的厕纸又有什么不同呢。

Went to Bukit Brown Cemetery today. Shall sort out the pictures soon. It's a pity that we always discover new things when we are actually about to lose them.

Sometimes people look at me with envy, "WTF, you living GPS ah? How come you know so many places one….?"

Actually there are many things that we can discover in Singapore, it’s just a pity that we do not have the time and energy for it. Which makes us look like a 文化沙漠 as compared to Taiwan Malaysia or even Hong Kong, which started out with similar history like us. One reason I wanna take up Architecture is to keep Cultural Conservation strong among us, so that in the future I can show my kids what our land has to offer them, and not just by tearing down old buildings because they are old.

Sometimes it's good that we look back.

Went jogging today, decided to run around Bedok area.

Bedok, is where my third Primary School was--the Red Swastika Sch. Last time the old people always pronounced it as SWA-TE-KAH.








I think one of these days I am gonna compile all my "Neighborhood Pictures" into various 地方册s and start researching on them. Should be pretty unseful huh, compiling culture and architecture together.

Talking about culture.... Bt Brown. I'm going there tomorrow. Conserve.
:D

I'm definitely having my fair share of lazing and working.
And I'm going out everyday like no one's business.

And guess what, i opened a new Maybank Account.
Time to start saving money before I go jobless after ORD.







Food can be a pretty good catalyst for making things happen.

When I look at you, I don't just see one person.
I see men behind you.
And everyone of these men has somebody waiting for them to come home.

Ultimately, I am responsible not only to you, but to those at home waiting for their sons, brothers and loved ones to come home.

My results are not measured by your individualistic successes today, but by the success of your actions to those under your command tomorrow.




Becoming like a history buff now, because I've got history buffs in my office.
History is like so fun lah, can.

Which comes to a point, why the hell did I take Science in NJ!
GRRRRRRR, to the max.

Tepi Sungai

I think the worst thing humans have invented is the handphone. With communications getting so easily available, it's no wonder information is passed down so quickly, and so are orders and demands and whatever crap there is.

And worst still, you lose your privacy. It's like, people can call you at any time they want and more foten then not, you'll just pick up the call and go &!@(>?@#$! ten minutes later.

Finished reading my book, called Malaysia Negara Kita (hahaha damn stupid name right). Not bad lah, with chapters like Penguasaan Ingerris Di Perak and Salasilah Pemerintahan Negeri Selangor, obviously it kills my time in the office right.

That said, my computer account is pink in color. YES, PINK FROM MICROSOFT WORD TO DESKTOP TO EMAILS TO ICONS.

Keeps the day alive, doesn't it?

It's a blessing I should say, to have a supposedly beautiful weekend getting myself stuck in camp doing nothing but reading/Facebooking/sleeping/eating/playing and waiting for things to happen, which most of the time (touch wood) won't.

Finally I have found myself time to start clearing junk on my table, in my bags, and inside my webpages. Which of course will include Facebook.

I have been using Facebook for like, 4 years already? Since Sec 4, as I remember. Back then Facebook was thought to be a copy of Friendster. Then things started to change. I remember J1 I started to play some Facebook games like some Pokemon stuff... Then J2 I started mass camwhoring and people started playing with Mousehunt (which I think is freaking stupid, clicking a bell every 15min?)... From Army times it started to include adverts and other annoying stuff, and this year they actually started with things that show your past status updates and pictures at the right bar, which I think is quite annoyi…

Do not look at the world through your head, look at it through your heart. --that's what Ketut told Liz (Julia Roberts)

Misconceptions about the world, it must be.
Toronto trip made me wiser;
That there is no absolute truth,
while Reality is always changing due to emotions and perceptions.


I'm sure I'm young boy no more.

Recently happened to listen to a lot of Japanese artists. Like GIRL NEXT DOOR and moumoon. Swee lah.





Recently very busy at work, so busy that I don't have enough time to sleep, moreover blogging.
But I do enjoy the nights-outs that I have. Hehe.
Eat drink make merry. That's the life man.


Don't feel like going to Uni, AT ALL.
