I visited a friend today at hospital. His sister has been hospitalised for about two months now after an accident. I don't know how I may help, but pray for her. And I hope you, too, can pray for her and her family. May she make a speedy and full recovery soon. And may her... Continue Reading →
Distractions of the Doctor
You might have noticed that I've changed the look of the site. Early on in the day, I had to decide between changing to to a Drupal installation or upgrading my old WordPress installation. I decided on the former, but after some unsuccessful attempts at exporting the data, decided to settle on the latest WordPress... Continue Reading →
Living with Her
"Living together is not easy," he told me, while he nibbled away at the chicken in front of him. Zixuan and I were at a KFC outlet at Hougang Point, with he having his post-IPPT dinner, with me as accompaniment. We were, as usual, discussing girlfriends. "I once had a friend," he continued, "who lived... Continue Reading →
The Second Guess
There are days where I second-guess this romance. And ask, "is this true love, or just my imagination?" Then thinking about my thinking I stop mid-thought, and Berate myself for this blasphemous contemplation. But do not fault me for thinking twice about us. Because when it comes to you, believe me, I am serious. More... Continue Reading →
Beauty World (and Thanks)
I've just returned from a company-sponsored dinner and musical (Beauty World). Beauty World's a local musical, and though I wasn't expecting much from it, I thoroughly enjoyed it. This was the first time I attended a musical in ages, and the first one I've watched at the Esplanade. Though I wouldn't be able to justify... Continue Reading →
Older and Wiser
"I'm old enough to know if what they're doing is right," she tells me, as she looks away as if that was that; the argument was ended; that she was right and I was wrong. We were talking politics, and though I did not disagree with what she had said (and indeed would have taken... Continue Reading →
Love at a Hundredth Sight
I believed that there was someone "out there" who was "meant for me", someone divined by the stars to be by my side through this life. I had very strong preconceived notions on what this person would be like, and I was certain that there would be no one else but this person with whom... Continue Reading →
I was at many times in this trip tempted to drive recklessly, almost to tell her "f*** you". But I didn't. What I feel like doing, what I think of doing, and what I do, are three separate things. I normally do the right thing.
The Life Worth Living
There is no right way to live. There is no good or bad. Whether we save a millions lives or conduct mass genocide, neither can be said to be better than another. It's just what happens.
Going Too Smoothly?
"Do you think things have been going too smoothly?" I asked her. "Heh, it's the honeymoon period, these first three months." I just lay there, thinking. I didn't like the way we had progressed. I felt that we needed to quarrel over something. I don't know why, but when things go as frictionless as it... Continue Reading →
