I've got a pet hamster! Well, a virtual one that is.

There he is, just at the side, roaming back and forth. He's quite a cute fellow. Go ahead and click on him. For some reason, he sniffs non stop and keeps looking at your mouse pointer wherever it goes. He can even rotate his head 360 degrees when you move move it around his head! Hahaha.

Actually, he's named after a real hamster that I once had when I was around primary 2 or 3. Yep, the same orange color too. He was my first pet and when he died, I was so sad that I didn't go to school for 2 days because I was crying all the time. We even buried him in front of a tree near my old house.

The last time I went back, the tree was gone but of course I'll never forget my very first pet. =)

I'm half asleep as I'm typing this entry. I don't know what to write, but sometimes that's the best time to blog. Pardon me if I sound a bit incoherent.

On Sunday at East Coast our church had a gathering to celebrate our anniversary. While some of us were nearby playing football, my auntie somehow tore her achillies tendon. She said that someone kicked her as she was running but I think the "kick" that she felt was merely the impact of her tendon snapping.

Tendons are the parts that connect the bone to the muscle. So if your tendon snaps, you won't be able to move that particular part of your body. I remember reading The Return Of The Condor Heroes and there's one character who gets paralysed because she had her tendons cut. The thought of my auntie becoming lame did enter my mind for a while but considering how advanced medical treatment has gone today, I'm sure she'll be alright.

Oh well, I'm feeling thirsty and I have to go take a dump. After that, I'll watch Bleach Episode 26. =)

I Actually Can Turn Invisible

I just got back from work, dead beat. Today somehow, I was somehow made to work until 12am when I was only supposed to work until 8pm.

Right now I don't really mind because I've already got the money, but during the last few hours I was just dying to go home. I started working from 10am, that's why. Whenever I work as a banquet waiter the part of my body that kills me the most are my feet. When they ache, you can't do anything about it, unless you sit down (which is rare), and even if you stand it still doesn't go away. It's during times like that when you start to say to yourself, "Think about the money, think about the money". It's a good thing I found some new hiding places to rest the last time. Haha.

I don't really watch Channel U's Project Superstar but I have caught a few moments of it when I'm channel surfing. There's one thing about the fans watching in the studio that I don't get.

Why do they cover their faces with the banners that they wave?

If you truly support someone, you shouldn't be afraid to show your support for them even in front of other people. Don't tell me you're a fan but you only show your support when no one's watching. I might as well say, "I actually can turn invisible... but only when no one's watching."

Bah. It's all just another plot by Mediacorp to get you to part with your money. For me, I'd rather go to sleep.

Conversation Of The Day #2

Banquet Captain: "Eh boy, you got smoke or not?"

Me: "No, I don't smoke."

Banquet Captain: "Ah.. Okay. Good, good.. Eh, you got lighter?"

I've been kind of busy this week, hence the lack of posts. I'm going to watch Dim Sum Dollies later on with my super lovable girlfriend, since we heard that it's pretty good.

Alright then, I'll watch the latest episode of Gundam Seed Destiny now. Later.

Quote Of The Day

We're all scared. You hid in that ditch because you think there's still hope. But Blithe, the only hope you have is to accept the fact that you're already dead. And the sooner you accept that, the sooner you'll be able to function as a soldier is supposed to function. Without mercy. Without compassion. Without remorse. All war depends on it." - Lt. Ronald Spiers


I was watching Band of Brothers when I heard this quote. The Lieutenant was talking to a Private who was so scared to the point that he would occaisionally go blind because of his fear.

But what he said is so true. During times when you fear losing your life the most, the only way to lose that fear and continue functioning is to accept that you're dead to begin with. It also makes it easier to accept death when you're dying. When I watch all those war movies, the soldiers I pity the most are those who die before they even know it and the ones who die without being able to fight back.

There was a scene were 2 soldiers were crawling side by side under fire and when one of them start to speak, his sentence was cut off by a bullet in his head. The other soldier said, "Shit" and continued crawling.

And there was another scene in the movie where some of the planes got shot down before the soldiers managed to jump off.

I just think it would really suck to die like that.

But coming back to what the Lieutenant said, it's really sad, when you have no choice but to live your life like that. Still, after watching all these movies, I feel becoming a soldier. Maybe I should go join the US Army since I'm eligible. Haha.

On A Sleepy Monday Afternoon

Is it just me, or was it really hot last night?

I resorted to wearing just my swimming trunks (the shorts kind of course) and still I was sweating. I thought of sleeping in the buff, but then I wouldn't want anybody coming in my room early in the morning and seeing something they don't want to see.

Well, I'm stuck at home now, waiting for my friends to wake up and then come up with something to do. Yes, they're only just waking up around this time. I guess maybe we go for a game of pool, watch a movie or something like that.

Oh well, I'll go and do something else while I wait. I'll go and check out what's happening in the Cowboy Bar.

In the meantime... ever wonder how the professional photographers manage to take all those great pictures? Simple. It's all about getting the right position.

Just like that

Living With Others

I think I have a love hate relationship with my uncle and auntie. Sometimes I think they like me, other times I think they find me a bother staying in this place.

We don't have any bad blood between us but there is one issue that's a problem. It's on the issue of curfew. It was something that my parents asked them to do before they left. So officially, my curfew time is 12 midnight. Sometimes however, I come late and that's what causing this small tension between us.

Actually this curfew was already being implemented during the time my parents were already here. They had as much trouble as my uncle and auntie now. I'm a bit of rebel I have to admit, but the main reason I don't follow this curfew strictly is because I think it's stupid. I don't care. If it's stupid, I'm not going to follow it.

For every rule set in place, there's a reason behind it. It's important to understand to the reason behind the rule so that we won't be following it like an idiot and more importantly, we'll know when certain rules are right or wrong. So then, why do parents impose curfews? Here are the reasons I came up with.

Curfews are implemented because:

1) To make sure that you're safe because it's dangerous at night.

2) To make sure that you're at home so that you won't mix with bad company.

3) To make sure that you won't stay out late and be home in time to prepare for school/work the next day. (This includes studying, homework, etc)

4) To spend time with the rest of the family when everybody's home.

Any other reasons? I can't think of anymore. The reasons are quite reasonable I suppose... that is, if you're still a child! Come on, I'm already 20 years old! Like my friend Donavon said, "Wah, so old already still got curfew meh?"

Exactly! I'm already old enough to protect myself and I have enough sense to tell the difference between good and bad company. I'm not schooling any more either. What about spending time with the rest of the family? Well, the truth is, I'm not close to my uncle and auntie at all.

To tell you the truth, I don't like coming home. As I've come to realise, there's really nothing for me here. Whenever I'm here, I just feel so bored. That's why I'm come home so late. I'd rather be out spending time with my super lovable girlfriend or my friends.

Their family is different from mine, which is expected of course, but it's exactly that which makes it hard to me to get to know them better. First off, I'm not the kind of person who will easily get to know you or the kind that's very approachable and easy to get close to. My sister's that kind of person and she shares lots of things, so lots of my relatives like her. I'm not the super friendly kind like my sister and I'm a much more guarded person so I don't share much. So in my case, it's something like you have to take the first step before I start getting to know you. I think my uncle and auntie are pretty shy too, and we both don't talk that much. When we do talk however, it's the usual, polite small talk. They hardly watch TV too! When they're free at home, I don't know what they do, but whatever it is, it isn't watching TV. There are times when I watch channel 51, the Chinese MTV, before leaving the house and when I get back home at night and switch on the cable TV, it's still on Channel 51!

Another thing is that they sleep really early. Well, at least to me. By 10pm, they're already in their room getting ready for bed. So most of the time, when I come home they're already asleep and when I wake up they're gone for work. That's how we don't see each other for many days. Relating back to the curfew issue, during the times when I come home on time, I don't even know whether they realise that I was on time or not. Occasionally either my uncle or auntie stays late and I think it's just plain bad luck that sometimes I come home late during the times they are awake.

Maybe that gives them the impression that I'm out late most of the time. I don't know, but one thing I do know is that this curfew is stupid.

Bah. Maybe they'll stop bothering me once I get a job.

Young Boys And A Man

Is it only me or does this headline on Soccernet look wrong to you?

The words "Young Boys", "WANKdorf" and "erection just don't go together. Well, maybe if you're reading an article on Michael Jackson it won't be surprising, but not on Soccernet. Not only that, if you think of it, the order of those words are sequential as well.

Reminds of of this stupid dude on Sandralious's latest entry. (Warning: Not Safe For Work - which means erm... make sure no one's around when you view this.)

I don't know who that guy is, but man, he is so BUSTED. What a dumbass.
