Wishful Thinking

Being both a full-time copywriter and media/communications uni student I need to write lotsa crap. Essays, articles, advertisements, presentations, letters etc.

Lately, my train of thoughts keeps getting distracted. Sometimes, there’s no thoughts at all.

I need to get back to my zen moment…but i can’t find the zen anymore! Argh.

Perhaps i should gear up all my writing paraphernalia and hide out at the beach for a day.

Hrm, that’s a thought.

I Feed You, You Must Feed Me Too!

Another ‘in the bus’ story.

Was coming home from work in a sardined bus this afternoon…and this Chinese lady being typical Chinese was telling her 20+ year old son…

Lady: We spend so much for you, when you grow up…you must take care of dad and I you know? Don’t be like your brother…
Son: …

*translated from Cantonese*

And she kept nagging on and on.

Eh. Come on lah lady.

You and your significant other chooses to have a child unless it was an accident but your poor child DID NOT choose to have you.

Bringing a child up is your own responsibility and your own decision.

Whether or not your child(ren) treats you back the way you treated them is of course, respect…but certainly NOT a duty.

If you want your child to care for you in the future, all you have to do is make sure of their upbringing and GAIN the respect from them. Afterall, you are what moulds your child.

Spread the love, yo!

Reformatting

My parents got me my current laptop in June last year (on the 9th to be specific – that’s the beauty of having a blog) and I’ve not done anything to it since then.

I figured it was time to reformat it because it was becoming awfully laggy and besides, it’s a good time to check out Windows Vista!

Had to transfer all my pictures, songs, documents and what not out. And as I’m typing now, it’s currently in the process of reformatting.

So depressing la.

Even though I’ve got all my stuff but it’s like…. moving house you know?

You move all your stuff with you, but there’s some unwanted rubbish you leave behind in the old house. And there’s the memories too..like how ‘settled’ you were in the old house.

Aiyayayayaiiii.

Hands In The House

This post is again VERY outdated. I’ve got like 6 pre-typed posts all waiting to be published from like…weeks ago. Haha!

Sometimes it’s handy having guys as housemates.

They change the blown light globes.

They check the fuse box when there’s a black out.

They fix the heater and everything else spoilt.

They wash the dishes (because they can’t don’t cook)

They insist on carrying all the heavy grocery bags to show their macho-ness (even if it’s a bottle of milk)

And yes…

They also check for momoks when there’s noises outside :mrgreen:

And oh, with currently 4 guys as housemates and 3 of them has cars…I have long came to a conclusion that…

The only chores that they do without being asked to is…

….

Cleaning/waxing/polishing their cars.

🙄

You see them buying all those wax for their cars. Two of them has white cars. And one of them a red car. So all 3 of it has to be sparkly clean so that it looks nice.

Then they have like… play dates where another friend drives over one sunny afternoon and they polish their car together.

-_-”

DOH!

Do you see a guy go buy detergent to mop the floor? (willingly)

A Dream

I woke up this morning from a dream. A dream so surreal yet ridiculous.

I couldn’t remember how it started but I remembered the end.

It was my graduation day.

What’s so ridiculous you may ask.

It wasn’t at Murdoch, neither was it for a Bachelor of Mass Communications.

It was at…..

UWA…

In my dream, I was throwing my mortar hat together with a group of friends(I recognised them in the dream, but i can’t remember who they are)

And….I was carrying my viola. Together with my viola teacher.

Meaning…I graduated from UWA with a degree in music.

-_-”

Dream interpreter anyone?
