The Way

Basically, this

Apart from the uncertain future I've now jump-start into, ervtyhing else has been going pretty great so far. I've never loved and appreciated my life any more than ever.

Of course, it's no denying that it's a little worrying that I'm neither left nor right at the moment, but I'll be sure to get to somewhere, I just need a little more time.

Always looking ahead, two steps at a time!

Relief

Basically, this

Sometimes, I'm just glad for the thing I did not do.

Nobody predicts the future, but everybody can control their present.

Basically, this

Here's for last year, and today. I figured, at least for that one time in the year, I should treat myself right at least.

Happy Birthday

And I unblocked the low-life, not sure if that's the right thing but...I don't think I want to let the rest of my life be controlled by my past.

Shambles

2011/04/27(Wed) 20:51
Basically, this

My dad probably has the foulest of mouths out there with a strange twist. Just yesterday and this morning, he had been badgering me to use the new umbrella he bought for me. I refused, declined and firmly rejected. In the end, it rained down on me hard this evening. And I was just shooting my mouth yesterday on the odds of rain, and besides even if it did, I usually don't have that kind of luck to leave the office early. And by the time I do leave, the rain would have halted.

Everything went the reverse, perfectly - of course.

Another thing that has been raining down hard would be the nation's general election. Even though it happens once every five years, the sheer amount of publicity put into GE would probably put publicity for the recent Justin Bieber's concert in Singapore to shame.

Someone in my office was just commenting about how the representatives would hardly ever show their faces during their "off" election periods. But to garner votes, they would do...seemingly anything and everything for it. Politics, are an area someone my age would hardly consider neither stepping nor dwelling into.

Not that I don't give a hoot's worth about but it's probably because I hardly understand what's going on about and around it. Singapore is just a democratic country, and that seems all I need to know.

All those messages linked with national service, on what you can do for your country and vice versa, sound almost incomparable with the government's business. While we have the right to vote for what and who we believe in, it is obviously beyond our control what the people in that upper level can do for us. Of course, extending school and working hours to 12 hours a day to increase productivity is never going to happen (thankfully), but reconsidering the needs and wants of every citizens, it's not easy to fulfill everybody's demands.

Couple A, a newlywed, would be worried about getting a HDB flat of their own, given today's astronomical cost in almost everything, housing is just one of the money barriers alongside the other necessities of standard living in Singapore these days. Person B, a single working individual, and let's up the bar by saying he's an orphan but thankfully he still holds a decent job with regular income. But by any means, he also wishes to purchase a flat of his own instead of constantly having to live in a rented one.

Who can make both of their wishes come true? These are just reasonable demands, housing. But sadly, above anything else, there's just costs and competition to not will such a fair ending from happening. In fact, unless Person B is a highflyer, Couple A is more likely to get their housing wish first, and if lucky, give or take, few years down the road.

In the end, it's all about good governance, publicity and promises don't usually go hand in hand all the time. And even at the age of 30 and beyond, competition still rears the ugly head of envy and greed among the different opposition.

Tell me why, other than the future outcome affecting you, why would almost anyone be too overly concerned with the general election. I'm 21, full fledged with rights to vote, but I'm probably gonna withhold myself of that right, and simply sit and stare...for now.

Sludge

2011/04/26(Tue) 00:15
Basically, this

My mom first alerted me about the weird smell in my bag when she took a sniff in it one day. I wasn't that alarmed as I'm thinking she's up to her usual ramblings on "my smell". Her degree of "smelly" was never the case to me.

And then just this morning, I accidentally took a whiff and I had to wrinkle my nose. There was this powerful sour odour that came bursting within the bag. Clearly, it wasn't my smell but I thought nothing of it, intending to letting it wash tonight.

And just a few minutes ago, while emptying the contents of my bag, I finally traced the source of the smell.

I dug out a flattened but heavy orange plastic bag, it had been hidden among the piles of my other empty plastic bags which I used to hold clothes and stuff for my gym outings. I opened up the bag only to see another clear plastic bag, but the contents were just like a scene out of fear factor.

I stared blankly at it for what seem like ages, trying to remember anything about it. Whatever it was, it probably has been sitting in the bowels of my bag for at least close to a few weeks, give or take. I saw a piece of paper among the sludge and then it just hit me what this is.

It was, a pork bun.

I took it to my parents' bedroom and showed them excitedly what I found and what caused my bag to stank so much. Needless to say, they didn't share my enthusiasm. After a few immediate feedback of my stupidity, how rancid the smell was and the incessant mass spraying of air freshener, I was ejected from the room.

Parents just don't share the strange happenings their children exposes to them sometimes.

And as for my bag and my other contents, thankfully by a stroke of luck, the sludge had never spilled out of the plastic bag at all. But the bag had to be put into an emergency wash and my stuff has to be aired out.
