And three months has passed. What lies ahead?
I was re-reading the book Thick Face Black Heart by Chin-Ning Chu when I came across this (unintentionally) funny sentence: These simply rules of discrimination are common among the world's businessmen and political leaders, as well as among Chinese dogs. Apparently the author doesn't think very much of businessmen and political leaders!
there couldn't be a sadder day than the one that i am in today; the life that i once knew is gone; and all that i have left is this song. i couldn't believe my eyes when i saw you with another guy; i thought i was mistaken but it seems your heart was taken... Continue Reading →
One of the most important things I've ever learned about life is that we should look for faults within ourselves. I mean really look for faults. In that way, we will know what we can improve on; what to change. If we find that we procrastinate too much, we should learn to be more action-oriented.... Continue Reading →
My wisdom's tooth almost healed already. Although it still gives me a little discomfort, I'm pretty sure that within the next three days, especially after the stitches are removed, I shall be able to do almost everything that I have done before. Including eating sushi. And kissing.

She looked at me, curious, and asked, "what?" knowing that I had just thought a thought that she probably would like... Continue Reading →
I Love You
Saying "I love you" to someone still alive, other than a romantic partner, is difficult.

However, if I do imagine any one of them... Continue Reading →
The End of a Journey at Hypovereins Bank
Tomorrow (or technically today) marks the end of two and a half-months of my working at HypoVereins Bank (HVB). Much as I have been looking forward to this day, as it shall give me some mental and perhaps physical respite, I shall leave with a very heavy heart. I have enjoyed thoroughly almost every day...
