If I Ain't Got You - Alicia Keys

***Love the song.. song the lyrics.. kind of grows on me actually.

If I Ain't Got You - Alicia Keys

Some people live for the fortune
Some people live just for the fame
Some people live for the power, yeah
Some people live just to play the game
Some people think that the physical things define what’s within
And I been there before but that’s life’s a bore, so full of the superficial

Some people want it all, but I don’t want nothing at all
If it aint you baby, if I aint got you baby
Some people want diamond rings, some just want everything
But everything means nothing if I aint got you, yeah

Some people search for a fountain
The promise is forever young
Some people need 3 dozen roses
And that’s the only way to prove you love them
Hand me the world on a silver platter
And what good would it be?
With no one to share with no one who truly cares for me

Some people want it all, but I don’t want nothing at all
If it aint you baby, if I aint got you baby
Some people want diamond rings, some just want everything
But everything means nothing if I aint got you, you, you

Some people want it all, but I don’t want nothing at all
If it aint you baby, if I aint got you baby
Some people want diamond rings, some just want everything
But everything means nothing if I aint got you, yeah

If aint got you with me baby, ohh, ooo
Say nothing in this whole wide world don’t mean a thing
If I aint got you with me baby.

Goodbye procasty hello panic

I am experiencing studying obsessiveness recently, which is good because I my prelims are in 13 days time..and counting.

The feeling is so intense that I will keep late hours, forgo sleep and start having an intense and concentrated feeling that I actually like studying and am interested in the things before me.

Anything that came between me and my books will be well received with a biting snarl and a piercing look that promise a thousand curses and hexes if they stay any longer.

All these are results from the impeding exams that are rushing in day by day at lightning speed!

Before this frantic hair raising fear there's the "avoidance activity" that happens everytime I'm supposed to do something I don't want to do. All of the sudden, I will suddenly feel this zealousness to clean my room, the whole house, reorganise my wardrobe.. basically everything I was supposed to do but I didn't because I procastinated. When the time comes to be really studying, I am suddenly interested to do all that instead!

I'm also a person that is based on inertia. Its very difficult for me to start working on something I don't like. If I really have to yet don't wish to and I know I can get away with half hearted attempts till the last minutes I'll just basically try to brainwash myself the whole year telling myself actually this is an actitivity that I enjoy doing.. basically anything to get my cocktail sipping lazy boy chair sitting brain to work. The progress is goddamm slow but eventually my mind will suddenly be in the state of work consciousness and the ball will finally start rolling like now.

Once the ball starts rolling, I'll suddenly be interested in nothing but studying! ...but hopefully my short attention span will not shortchange this miraculous change I've finally brainwash myself to .

Let me digress a little by saluting my teacher and mentor that have stand by me for my past 21 years:Procastination.

Oh, procastination, I always like to think of myself as a student in study of your wonderous wisdom. My favourite phrase of all time is "I'll do it tomorrow." As a student of your learnings, I'm definitely a procasdent, the word formed by merging the word with student. What's the difference between a procastinator and a procasdent you may ask. Well, a procastinator may just use the action of procastination to get away with something, using it as an excuse, as a procasdent, we have the highest profound respect and admiration for such an art and we acknowledge and recognised the great influence and benefits it have bought into our dull meaningless lives. We have numerous devotees and always wanted to start the club officially to dig out the closet procatys (that's what we call people who did not know they are actually procasdents yet but are practicising the art already) but procastinated in doing so!!

Ahh.. you have no idea what joys and fond memories I will not experienced if I have follow Procastination's hatred siblings determination, steadfastness, and resilience.I still fondly reminscised all those times of diligent learning... like those numerous times when I rather go clubbing on a wednesday night then not turning up for school on thursday.. or the time when I gaily capitalised on the phrase monday blues to skip school as well even though I don't have anything against mondays at all. There's so many other incidents I would like to share my dear readers.. but I'll do that tomorrow.

Are we? Are we not?

My friend have this problem.

She has been seeing this guy for a few months already and have already did whatever couples would do.

First base, second base,home run.

Been there done that.

But when I ask her are you two together as a couple, she doesn't know. He never asked her she said. Plus, she'll be free to date other guys still.

"Let nature take its course? If we like each other enough in the long run, we'll commit then."

Well, you would think that with sex already happening betwen them, they must be a couple as well right? COz at my parents' generation, if they are holding hands they already are a couple.

It's the same issue as one of my guyfriends. When I asked him where was his girlfriend, his reply was,

"What girlfriend?"

"That girl that was hanging your arm for months..? isn't she your girlfriend?"

*hem and haw* "No lah Sam, that was just a friend.."



"I don't know, well, she doesn't seem to mind plus I do not want to get into a commitment yet... blah blah blah.. (etcetera) "

Let me first make my stand here. I neither approve nor disapprove of this kind of relationship, well as long both parties are fully aware of the situation and not one party leading another on.

BUt you have to wonder, since when has relationships be treated as thus?
Could it be that in our current lives we are so pampered and so highly entertained that we couldn't stand the idea of commiting to something or someone without the assurance of its value to us in certainly?

Last time people have plenty of time for romance and get to know you sessions. Look at all those indian movies where the leads have time chasing each other from mountains to valleys to fields of flowers and get a group of people to dance in sync with them just to sing a love song with each other.

Boy, with the rehearsals, they must have a lot of time to spare.

How about the chinese in pre-modern Singapore then?

After a long day's of work as a coolie,the lads and ladies have nothing better to do than go to the night bazzar or to supper, to sing and dance a little and to throw shy blushing glances at each other.

"Ah niu ge..."
"Ah hua mei.."

Then they will get through the long process of .. using the lyrics of a song in the movie "The king and I"..

"Getting to know you, getting to know about you.."
"Getting to like you , getting to hope you like me..."

Look at the examples through the old chinese movies like the chiong yao drama serials. The lovers at the most only gave each other a chaste kiss that's all!

Now, what happened to all that?

Today, with everyone's bz bz lifestyle, no one has the time nor patience to get to know the other party slowly as a person anymore. Instead of getting to know you, they would rather concentrate on judging as fast as possible whether the party fits them in all aspects instead... based on the person's lifestyle and what they have and their status on a large part and what kind of person they are on a more minor extent.

Perhaps I shouldn't use the word they, coz personally I am guilty of that as well as demostrated in my previous article, but I have to say, I think character is v.important as well!!!

A few arguements I've heard supporting the point above:

" Aiya Sam, character can slowly try to change over time what, status and possessions are harder to get leh!"
" Even if I get a guy with the best character in the world and he have nothing at all, well, things will definitely not work out as well, so might as well be more practical and chose the guy that have it and for character wise, let's see how we can work it out then. It's easier that way."

Life nowadays is too fast to take anything in slow leisure anymore, this kind of courtship where you take the cake and eat it but is still free to refund have its pros and cons. It's up to one whether they can take this kind of dating style.

To end things let me show off my newest casual "trying to act cool while looking totally grubby" photo.


Chances are - Johnny Mathis

Chances Are
Performed by Johnny Mathis

Chances are 'cause I wear a silly grin
The moment you come into view
Chances are you think that I'm in love with you
Just because my composure sort of slips
The moment that your lips meet mine
Chances are you think my heart's your Valentine

In the magic of moonlight when I sigh, "Hold me close, dear"
Chances are you believe the stars that fill the skies are in my eyes

Guess you feel you'll always be the one and only one for me
And if you think you could
Well, chances are your chances are awfully good

Chances are you believe the stars that fill the skies are in my eyes
Guess you feel you'll always be the one and only one for me
And if you think you could
Well, chances are your chances are awfully good

The chances are your chances are awfully good

You love the way you shop girlfriend

The way you love can be reflected through the way you shop. From evidence from that small pool of girlfriends that I observed their shopping habits, this hypothesis can be 75% true.

Girlfriend no.1 likes to shop impulsively. Go into the shop and grab whatever catches her fancy without thinking whether it really suits her or not. In the end ends up with a lot of unsuitable clothes, shoes, and starts to moan and whine endlessly about her wastage.

Likewise, her boyfriends are gotten and dumped impulsively as well. Up till now, I could never remember a guy whom she dates and really get to know without rushing into being in a relationship with him.

Girlfriend no.2 likes to take her time in buying things. Too much time in fact. Everytime she goes shopping, she would drag along a trolley of friends to ask for opinions each and everytime she wants to purchase anything. Ifhe doesn't, as long as a majority of friends says affirmative to buying it, she will because well, if most of them says its good , it must be good right? Maybe she just haven't seen it as her friends did yet.

Verdict, she gets monopolized by her boyfirends all the absolutely no opinion of her own everytime when it comes to decide where to go and what to do. its a " Whatever you suggest dear." senario.

For me, I can shop with a casual eye but whenever I spot something that have the potential to prompt me to part with the precious colourful notes in my lovely wallet I would contemplate a lot on whether I should make it mine or not. Questions like "Does it suit my lifestyle? Clothes? Does it really suit me? Would I get sick of it in the long run?" Its only when I am really certain that I love it and it fits all the criterias I have then do I buy something.

Likewise in love, I tend to brush off guys that I deem I do not like that much or think will not last long in my life. You can say I am picky but whenever I go shopping and manages to find something I love and buy it, I would really treasure it, and the sense of delight is great!But if its just a trivial I-do-not-know-why-I-bought-it thing, most probably it would be left to dust until I gave it to a friend or throw it away.

There are times when I will fool myself into thinking "why not just take a chance" especially in times when I starts to feel deprived,haha.. but sadly, the emotional attachment will be zilch. Thus, I can never commit myself into a relationship unless entirely sure.

So what kind of shopper are you?

Moonlight - Sting

Moonlight - Sting

In the moonlight
When the shadows play
When the thought of what could happen
Takes your breath away
Sighs and whispers
Quiet laughter in the air
Unspoken invitations everywhere

In the moonlight
All the words you say
Make it relatively easy
To be swept away
In the half-light
Can we trust the way we feel
Can we be sure that anything is real

Stars keep secrets as they wander indiscretely
While the echoes of a song go drifting by
We must be careful not to lose our way completely
Or the magic that we seek here
We can't be sure will be here

In the morning
With the moon away
And if in each other's arms
Is where we're meant to stay

In the love light
When our eyes have grown accustomed to the daylight
We'll see what waits for us to share
For all the things we've dreamed of in the moonlight
Will be there

Repeat after me : Sam is so nice

I have to say first, a BIG THANK YOU to my friends for celebrating my 21st birthday with me on saturday. I really want to say thanks to all those that turned up even though it was an extremely last minute thing.

A BIG KISS to all those that helped my buy my the bbq food for me while I rushed home to get the other food stuff and da cake.


AND special appreciation to Mariam and Helaine for going home with me to lug the the goddamn heavy stuff to the chalet with me.. plus helping me clear up the moring after as well. Love you guys. :)

Sorry about the long absence since my last entry. Have been soooo tired and busy with things.

Plus, my wit is as dry as a passive's crack without the ky jelly.

But finally today is the day where INSPIRATION strikes!

I've decided to write about Me.

Dear loveable adorable Me.


For starters, have I told you how nice I am feeling today?

I'm so nice that I have a halo hovering over my head and have the nickname "Angelic Sam".

I don't feel pissed nor bitchy ..just nice.

Which most probably is because I am now simply too tired to feel anything else... but still! I am feeling sooo nice today.

So nice that I decide to reward YOU my dear faithful readers a photo of me and my niceness. (plus the halo hovering over my head)

NOt only does this photo portrayed accurately my wonderful radiance of innocence, it also show my glow of youthfulness and the spark of intelligence in my eyes.


These two photos on the otherhand reveals the comic talent me Helaine and Aliah have. Not only that, it depicts the flower of naiveness and blush of wacky earnestness in us.

Ahh.. the beauty of youth .

Its not SO easy being so nice and yet stay modest and humble knowing the fact that I am such a nice and wonderful human being.

In fact its pretty darn hard.

I had to make my rounds everyday to my friends telling them not to keep telling people that I'm nice. They tell me all the time that they don't and they won't, and even got to the extend of not picking up my calls or even make a u - turn when they see me on the streets.

One even rushed headlong into a busy road at Orchard Road during peak hour at the mere glimpse of me the other day.

But I know the truth, they do that so they will not be coerced by me not to say I'm nice to other people anymore.

Come on, I know you love me guys, but just let me be the anonymous nice person and stop spreading me around.

I'm exclusive and am a extremely shy and quiet person who likes my privacy and anomity.

Thank you v.much.

Before I end this entry to go polish my halo so it'll be extra bright and shiny to the extend that people have to shield their eyes from its brillance, let me just say this last thing.

Don't say I'm nice anymore. I'll be terribly upset if you do. I do not need people to know of my greatness. I really don't.

* the person writing this article enjoys reading human psychology as bedside light reading. She particulary enjoys practicing the theories she learnt and finds reverse psychology highly entertaining.

**If you have caught the drift of the article and hint above, you can stop here. If not proceed to footnote below.

*** If above article and hint above is too vague for some readers to understand and really will not upset writer by spreading her greatness around... Let it be known that the writer do like people knowing how nice she is.

... quick, call all your friends to tell them now!

*"Repeat after me : Sam is soooooo nice...."*

Dreams are my reality

Dreams Are My Reality -- Richard Sanderson

Met you by surprise,
I didn't realize
that my life would change forever
Saw you standing there,
I didn't know I cared
there was something special in the air

Dreams are my reality,
the only kind of real fantasy
Illusions are a common thing
I try to live in dreams
It seems as if it's meant to be

Dreams are my reality,
a different kind of reality
I dream of loving in the night
And loving seems alright
Although it's only fantasy

If you do exist,
honey don't resist
show me a new way of loving
Tell me that it's true,
show me what to do
I feel something special about you

Dreams are my reality,
the only kind of reality
may be my foolishness has past
And may be now at last
I'll see how a real thing can be

Dreams are my reality,
a wonderous world where I like to be
I dream of holding you all night
and holding you seems right
perhaps that's my reality

Met you by surprise,
I didn't realize
that my life would change forever
Tell me that it's true,
feelings that are cue
I feel something special about you

Dreams are my reality,
a wonderous world where I like to be
Illusions are a common thing
I try to live in dreams
although it's only fantasy

Dreams are my reality,
I like to dream of you close to me
I dream of loving in the night
and loving you seems right
Perhaps that's my reality

oohhhh I lurvve french

Bonjour.. madam..monsieur....

That is the only french I know.. but don't you think french is just ooohh sooo sexy to say? The way it just rolllllllls off your tongue... the way it sounds...oh GOD.. especially the way it sounds..


Went to check on the internet about the language and discovered there are a great many english french dictionaries online where you can just type in an english word to check what is the french word for it.

Naturally I was extremely excited.

I think even if a man was reciting "Hansel and Gretel" to me in french, I'll swoon right away...

..come on..!! Not that I can understand what he is talking about anyway!

This is how gaga I am about that language.

I found this website for romantic phrases in other languages online, and these are ze ones moi lurrrve ze most :

When You Want To Start a ConversationSay you're in a bar in Milan. You see someone attractive across the room. Start with one of these. Of course, when they start speaking to you fluently in Italian, you're on your own.
Hello, beautiful (or handsome). Can I buy you a drink?
French: Bonjour, ma belle (mon beau). Pourrais-je vous offrir a boire?
Spanish: Hola, guapo/bonito (guapa/ bonita). Puedo comprarle una bebida?
Italian: Ciao, bella (bello). Posso offrirti qualcosa da bere?
Hungarian: Szia jokepu. Fizethetek Neked egy piat?

Would you like to dance with me?
French: Voulez-vous danser avec moi?
Spanish: Te gustaria bailar conmigo?
Italian: Balliamo?
Hungarian: Akarsz velem tancolni?

When You Want To Express Your AffectionThese sweet nothings are definitely not first-date material. When you're a little further along in your relationship, however, you may use them with abandon to make your partner swoon.

I love you.
French: Je t'aime.
Spanish: Te amo.
Italian: Ti amo.
Hungarian: Szeretlek.

You're my soulmate.
French: Vous êtes mon soulmate.
Spanish: Tu es mi compañero del alma.
Italian: Sei la mia anima gemella.
Hungarian: Ugy erzem, hogy a lelki testverem vagy.

I want to spend the rest of my life with you.
French: Je veux passer la reste de ma vie avec vous.
Spanish: Quiero compartir el resto de mi vida contigo.
Italian: Voglio passare il resto della mia vita con te.
Hungarian: En Veled szeretnem leelni az eletem hatralevo reszet.

Do you know what a pre-nuptial agreement is?
French: Connais-tu les contrats de mariage?
Spanish: Sabes que es un acuerdo prenupcial?
Italian: Sai cos'e un accordo prematrimoniale?
Hungarian: Akarsz csinalni hazassag elotti szerzodest?

If you have tried pronoucing the phrases by saying ti out loud, you will concur with moi that those in french sound ze mossst sexy or excitant.

.. these are just some of the sayings I found on ze website. There are other examples which can be used in other situations which you can view at this website:

Oh but BEFORE you visit that website first, I must first state that I found the website under yahoo and purely went to that website due to the fact that it have french phrases... of coz I did browse around a little and found this article highly entertainly.. hehe.. guys, its not a bad idea to get my bday gift from here..hehe..

ok adieu ~

SOmewhere out there

Somewhere Out There --- America Tail

Watched on Disney's Channel the cartoon movie America Tail just now. Nice. Was particulary touched when the mouse sang this song.

Funny, I was never like this song that much before watching the movie, but you know, some songs only became special through association, like through visual or somehow the lyrics struck a chord in you.

Still, nice song. :)

Somewhere out there,
Beneath the pale moonlight,
Someone's thinking of me,
And loving me tonight.
Somewhere out there,
Someone's saying a prayer,
That we'll find one another,
In that big somewhere out there.
And even though I know how very far apart we are,
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star,
And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby,
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky!
Somewhere out there,
If love can see us through,
Then we'll be together,
Somewhere out there,
Out where dreams
Come true...

I HaTe SiCk DespEraTe FuCkS!!!! (parT 2!!!!)



YOU ARE SO WRONG!!!!!!!!!!



Ok, I'm slightly calmer now.



I would reccomend you this :

or this :

or even as a last resort, this :

BUt then again I'm pretty sure you have tried each and every single method there is already right?

ANd the point is NOTHING WORKS.

Give up, you are doom to be small FOREVER!


I don't care.

The baby don't care.

This aging singer don't care.


I'm pretty sure by now you guys are wondering which stupid up his arse prick got me so pissed right?

Some stupid fuck msg me say hi, this is your favourite indian lover. then pretended to be my friend then say:
"do you miss my...? ;) "
the rest of the message I can't be bothered to type.

If you dare say that in FRONT of me you diseased prick and you will be rewarded with a swift kick in ze balls.

I was not in a gd mood at all coz this is the 2ND time this morning some sick guy msg me hinting sex that never happened.

Why does despos always strike on a Sunday morning?

Evaluation: They tried to get laid all weekend being the sleazeballs that they are at clubs. Getting laid is like their life ambition see. And by Sunday morning when they realised they have FAILED again to even get any drunken girl to get in the sack with them again for the 2443,543,655 time, they panicked coz SUNDAY night is GAY night for most clubs and thus have no choice but msg at random any telephone number in the hope of some last min miracle .

And you know what, most probably they spend their nights curling up to inflatable dolls with models ' faces pasted on the face cut out for magazines.

Ahh.... feels so good after ranting.

*sips liang cha*

oh.. you know that detox article where I was talking about clearing my phone list?

Someone up there has a sense of humour.

After I had detox my phone list, suddenly those people with the detoxed numbers starts calling or msging me. It was awkard going through the "oh, I lost your number..".. especially for one who message me after reading that article to see whether he has been detoxed.

Not a idea to detox after all.

The Lessons Of MLM and outdoor sales

If you are one of the rare few who haven't heard of MLM, (which is like 1 in 1000,000 people age over 12..) it stands for Multi Level Marketing.

Which for your benefit I will now explain what is it about you SUA KU!

In case you guys forgot how a tree diagram looks like this is a sample!

Let's just say that your friend persuade you to join the company and you become your friend's downline. You manage to get some friends to join as well and they became your downline. Whatever they sell, you will get a certain percentage. Likewise, whatever you sell, your upline will get a certain percentage. And whatever downline's downlines sell, no matter how extended it is, as long as it links up to you, you will get a cut as well.

Oh and have I mentioned the car incentive where if you attained this certain number of points through your sales, you will get this lump sum of money to buy a car where most of those.. or rather the few that succeeded buy a SLK convertible?!?!?!

Sounds good right? Like a man being sensitive and caring and perfect and in love with us totally ..a hunk to boot and not being gay.. it is too good to be true..

That is why most people are either trying to succeed in the business or dabble in it before, dreaming then that it was really that easy.

Of course if it was really that easy you would see a lot of millionaires by now.

Let me now talk about the wonderful lessons I've learnt from MLM which can be applicable and highly usable in our everyday.. or not so everyday lives.

First, you want to psycho a friend to join an organisation (or a cult..) and you know that if you tell your friend the truth beforehand,he or she will definitely refuse to join. Just say that you just want to meet them to la kopi and "talk".

Preferably at a kopitiam near the designated place where you and the rest of the "members" hang out and can sufficiently persuade him or her to join through group pressure and the overwhelming pressure.

Remember, just give whatever excuse you can to get your friends out.

Lie, lie, lie.

As long as your objective is achieved. Just lie.

How about setting up a business then?

First, get a product that is of aceptable quality and marketbility. Persuade a group of friends to be really damm enthusiatic about it. Go spread the love and convince others of your absolute faith, belief and undying devotion and amazement of such a FANTASTIC product.

It's the sheep's theory. As long a group of people says something is good it must be good.

They will cave in and go with the flow before they know what hit them.

How about outdoor sales then?

Oh its just carrying bags of overpriced small products around singapore and persuading people to buy them.

I had the fun experince of it whenI was 16. It was a school holiday job.

You travel around and just ask people to buy them. Hawkers, stores, office buildings. As long there's people no place is too ulu for us to whack.

Oh yea, objective: lie.

Here's the speech: "Hi mdm, sorry to bother your time, I'm just here doing a promotion for Takashimaya/Popular...*insert any recognisable name*. We are doing a test market right now. Only have 100 piece to sell! It'll be launched next month at $69.90 but now for the test market, we are only selling it for $10! REally $10! How many sets do you want? 1 set? 2? Thank you!"

Sooooo fake right? hahaha.. and the presumptuous "thank you" at the end.. but that is what they teach at the training.

Oh another motivating phrase, "Every no brings you closer to a yes." Its to motivate the promoters not to give up..see.

Its not a job that I would ever go back into, but I don't regret trying coz it has been fun. :) sneaking into office buildings using the carpark lifts.. talking to all kinds of people ..had my first encounter of night life, beers and karaoke through afterwork activities with colleagues...

Ok, lessons learnt: ALways maintain a smile and act that your day has been great after going back to the office at the end of the day... even if you had sold zilch. Its like bloody cadecott hill there.

YOu will have more effective communication if you replicate that's fellow's way of talking. Not only will it make the fellow feel more at ease with you, he most probably can understand you better.

eg. of a wrong example: speaking posh english to a ah pek drinking tiger at a kopitiam.

eg. of a right example: "Halo Unnn ge! Ni hao ma!"

......TO be honest I start off with a lot more ideas than this.. but after that hour just now of finding a photo off the net and painstakingly decorate it so beautifully I'm dead beat now plus my mind is starting to go "uhhhh..."*visualise brain drooling for visual effects*

..I know I said I was tired.. but i couldn't resist.

I need sleep now..

I know you believe me.

I know you do.

You do right?

Tell me you do.


You do right?

I'm in a lame mood arn't I.

Why are you reading this then?

Is it that you find this ..captivating?

Sexy? Seductive? Irrrrrrisistable?

Ah shit, what is the topic of this blog again?

*scrolls up to see*

Oh yes.. er.. I think I got it covered before this digression already right?

Good night..

*knock out*


Hi baby, want a ... curry?

School was celebrating national day early so we were allowed to wear traditional ethnic costumes.

I wore a red indian sari courtesy from jay.



Was at Jay's house the previous night practicing how tie a sari a whole night through.

Do you know that the whole thing is actually one very lonng piece of cloth where you just fold and tuck into this inner lining skirt?

No zips no buttons. Zitch.

But I have to admit, with the proper technique pass down from Jay's pretty mum, I felt totally secure that it was not going to collapse down on moi.

Too bad I only have a camera phone.. so the pictures will only feature mostly moi~

For group photos's refer to Helaine or Aliah's future postings!


Went out with Mariam after that to buy Guoqiang's bday prezzie~

Yup, that's Mariam beside moi

Noth of us were exhausted from walking, my poor feet were in agony wearing uncomfortable but oh so pretty high heels. Needless to say, Mariam had to be the receiver of all my pathetic whining.

Oh,, wana see a 70s Charlie's Angels photo imitation? You know, the one with sunlight streaming in your hair?

Reminder : Time to detox darlings!

I was flipping through the phone list in my handphone just now.


*flip flip*

*flip flip flip*

Gosh there are many numbers there!

On closer inspection , I reckon there are about one quarter of them which I have not dialed nor stayed in contact with their owners.
..and I doubt I have any intentions of doing so in the near future.

NOt because of bad feelings , but they have became people I once know in my life, acquaintances that drift into the story of my life saying "hi there" and drifted serenely by and out.

I do appreciated them stopping by and playing a part in whatever lovely.. or not so lovely memory that I randomly reminiscsed about once in a while.

Thus with great nostalgia, I lovingly look at each name and indulge in the sensations each name brings me..

It's great! I feel shivers down my back at the recollection of a horrible event while looking at one and blushing at the sudden rememberance of a sweet memory by the next.

It's like an all-in-one movie experience where you are taken through this whirlwind of emotions and feelings from one extreme to another at the drop of a hat!

..or at the flip to the next name!

I simply love being over dramatic - don't I ? *wry smile*

Anyway, back to those lovely lovely names and numbers.

As I was saying, I was flipping through my phone list and discovered the amount of dusty names in it is increasing.

What do you think I did?

Deleted them of course!

*delete? Yes.*

*delete? Yes.*

*delete? Yes.*

After all they are taking up precious space where I can put in more numbers in my phone list again and new memories to create and to keep.

Guilty as charge

Yesterday night had a midnight conversation 3 way with Fabian and Veron. I was complaining about how bleak my love life was and how the right guy never comes along and even if he does something will definitely happen to fuck it up.

And there I was bitching and moaning about my pathetic love life and why things never work out with the guys that I like and how come I always attract the guys that I don't like when Fabian suddenly interrupted me and say,

"Sam, you are as bad as the men that rejected you what, you treat men like objects."

And it hit me, he is right.

Not that I really treat every guy as an object, just the guys that I date. After the first date, as long as I feel that there is no chemisty for me, I'll give the guy the brush off,meaning never to go out with him ever again even if they are really nice to me because I will feel like I will be wasting his time and mine.

Vice versa, when a guy that I do like does that to me I'll be most miserable and think he is a scumbag.

Ahh.. the vicious cycle of dating.

So what are the proper social etiquettes of first time dating then?

Agreeing to go on a second date just for the sake of it even if you are not interested just for propriety's sake or taking another shot at it?

Personally- nah.

Then can we ensure that with every date there will be a close 100% guarantee of success then?

Mars and Venus baby

Do people normally do things that are against their gender better nowadays? So if they do, do men and women really need each other? what is the general stereotype of female and male characteristics then?

In the past, Man are suppose to be hunters. We hunt you cook.*grunt grunt* ..kind of species. We don't like to comb over hair, move to a corner when we fart, extremely proud of overselves when we win the loudest belching contest. Clothes? Who cares if they have holes? As long as I'm comfortable in it who cares if I'll get a few shillings in my coffee cup if I just so happen to bend down to tie my shoelace and get misapprehension of being a beggar. Change our undies? Of course we do! Once a month!! Please! What do you think we are?

Nowadays things change, hair oil was invented and replaced using one's spit to style one's hair. The word metrosexual is spawn which give birth to straight gay men, who are so slick and stylish like gays but actually are straight. Don't underestimate them. They know the right kind of toner to use for each skin type, the best place for pedicures and manicures, the right colours to wear.

One of my guy friend use toner every night because he says he have oily complexion... I don't even do that!!!

The best hairstylists are all men. The best cooks are all men. The best dancers are all gays.. but still men.

..and one would have thought a woman would have done those things better.

In the past men are always the provider of women, but now?

Women don't need men to feed them, clothe them, anymore. Gone are the days where women sacrifice their own personal lives or even career to slave for their man and family after marriage. A lot of women are taking charge of their lives and being devoted in their career and think of it as more important then starting a family and having babies. Even for those with families wear the pants in the family or even shares the burden equally with their husbands. A lot of women can be or even more aggressive than men in the business field and according to one of my male friend who is working in a competitive marketing field.. scary competitors.

Women don't even need men for sex anymore. The best thing to rock a woman off and get her into a triple orgasm is a vibrator...not a man...of coz minus the physical intimacy.

Eventually men may realise they don't need women for the physical act of intimacy anymore as well. They have men! :)

Ok let me digress a bit here, if you are a man, before you grimace, maybe being gay is not your thing, it's not mine as well but what's so wrong being crooked in the first place? It's the norm that society place us that define what is the right sexual orientation for people.

Please don't even start protesting that men and women are the right combination coz the way we are built and blah blah blah....

Its the double X and Y chromosomes honey. HOw would you like it if you are a girl trap in a guy's body or vice versa?

Ultimately, as long there are what is considered straight people around man and women do still need each other.. a life without men... being a straight single gal who enjoys dating.. that will be a horror story!

..and one that I hope will never happen for me.. hehe ;)

So are men getting more feminine or are women getting more manly? Other than our physical self how can we differantiate a man and a woman in the long run?

I find that most interesting to view in the future. :)

I HaTe SiCk DespEraTe FuCkS!!!!

It amazes me sometimes how bad a person's conversation skills could be. Just let me demostrate by retyping from a saved file a conversation with this guy that messaged me from msm this afternoon:

me: hi there, sorri was away just now

him:its ok...working today? or at home?

me:nope, at home slacking

him:jus wanna get to know u better...R u on MC now...?what happen to you?

me:yea..have a bad case of sore eyes but getting better now, couldn't open my eyes the day b4.. have 1week's worth of mc.

him:good, so can rest lah...
him:I m actually on leave from 2molo til wed.

me:really how come? what are you working as?

him:T***** *****

me:i'm still studying

him:You look like a net fren i use to have, but she's a two timer....

me:huh?ahh.. really? hmm.. you mean she told you?

him:i mean 3timer altogether...
him:No, i found out.
him:one of them is my fren.

me:you mean she two time you and your fren and someone else?

him:Very shocked to find out.
him:Singapore is so small. Found out myself in orchard..
She skipped my appointment to say that she has a modelling assignment to do n guess what i saw her shopping wif a guy in Takashimaya..

me:woooahh.. haha.. must be a difficult experience to forget

him:she is a bit slimmer on the face... u look jus like her in this pic.

me:ermm.. ok

him:Of course, u dun look exactly like her...jus have a slight resemblance...

me:sorri gtg!

him:I logging out now...sms when u are free at this no. 9*******. cheers!

him:If u are really bored during ur MC day...can go out have coffee together...

*I logged out*


Of coz this isn't the worst.

What do you expect me to do?!?!! Go all awwww... you baby.. oh your ex girlfriend who LOOKED and SMILED like me THREE timed YOU??!!? Let me prove it to you that we women are not that bad by comforting you day and night and try to nurse your broken little heart back by giving you all the TLC that you need..

Please don't say I'm a hard hearted bitch.. but please... if you seriously think the best way to know a girl is by opening the conversation by telling her about your traumatic past relationship you are seriously W.R.O.N.G . Gone are the days where women fall foolishly to comfort their new found new male friend who happens to be all heart broken .. grow up! We have bad relationships before as well!

ANd goodness.. what's with wanting my full size photo as well???

I felt like I was in a arranged marriage session where my fate of ever getting married is the approval of that creep that I hardly know.


Plus for all those guys who likes to go online in search for sex,
"hi there, wan to have sex?"
"Can I suck your breast?"
"anyone wants to suck my cock?
"I like to lick pussy"
etc etc etc...

Have you ever wonder why you have to go online to have sex is because you are so disgusting that no one will EVER want to have sex with you??!

Think about that, I'm sure you have tried to go to nightclubs and leer at girls thinking that it was such a sexy expression and that some dingbat who had too much to drink would be magnetised by your electric charms and have sex with you.

If you are fat and have large man breasts as well... why don't you SUCK them for a change.. of course you would if your triple chin can allow your pouting lips to reach them you sick fuck!!!

About sucking your cock.. I'm sure you have a cock the size it was on the day you was born and underneath the folds of fats it will be like looking for a needle in a haystack.. this rate, the highest probability of it being sucked in anyway is you attaining the highest level of yoga thus even you are as round as a ping pong ball you may be flexible enough to suck your own balls.

.. or use a vaccum cleaner if you are really that desperate.

About licking a pussy, well, I do not have a cat but my friend does, and I'm sure if you do you have one clean tabby cat.

I know I digress a bit, well, back to that guy who is so baaaad in makinng small talk.

Come on, it isn't that difficult actually, just talk as if you are talking to any other friend of yours. Just go with the mentality of you have already get to know the person, the ice have been broken and then just be yourself.

Of course with some limitations of coz, if you normally have the habit of spewing vulgarities all the time with your mates.. I do suggest hold that part first.

Day By Day

purple love

Day By Day - Astrud Gilberto

Day by Day
Im falling more in love with you
And day by day
My love seems to grow
There isn't any end to my devotion
It's deeper, dear, by far
Than any ocean
I find that day by day
You're making all my dreams come true
So come what may
I want you to know
I'm yours alone
And I'm in love to this day
As we go through the years
Day by day
Im yours alone
And Im in love to this day
As we go through the years
Day by Day
