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 →
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 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 →
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.

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.
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.
"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 →
