Morrie revisited

There's quite a few points which I find very apt in the recent times that I found in Tuesdays with Morrie.

"Mitch, I don't allow myself any more self-pity than that. A little each morning, a few tears, and that's all."

Sometimes, the problem is living in your own little world. Everything revolves around me me me. Me life, me time, me sob sob, me poor thing. Surely life sux, but there are people out there who are worse off. People who sees that their life sux and learn and grow from it recovers. And people who merely live their worse off lives continue to have worse off lives.

And it never matters if you have set yourself to do the very best in everything you do, get the As, love the family, love the dog, love the man. Sometimes, things just don't work out. And when that happens, you ask yourself, what then?

So you go to your friends and ask them, what then? You ask:

"Shouldn't the world stop? Don't they know what has happened to me?"

Unfortunately, the world don't. The world changes. People changes. People never remain the same for you.

It's not easy to get out of the little world and realise that you're not alone in this. In your little world, you are the only person who suffers so bad so bad. But the harsh truth is in many cases,

Who cares?

But I do. Otherwise I wouldn't have bothered with this post.

I'm sick and tired of blowing my hair to no avail to make it look straight enough for THAT look. And it must be killing them softly.

So, hold your breathe for this man..

I'm going to rebond the hair. Don't know where, don't know when.

Let's just hope I wun live a life of regret if my hair turns out so flat and so stuck onto my head that my ears sticks out.

Saturday Wednesday Night Fever

It's been donkey elephant giraffe years since we did the boogie boogie. After listening to all the retro mp3s in the office, I decided:

Let's go MAMBO!

Who wants to join (or watch and laugh at) me on the platform doing all the stupid moves in my polka dots skirt and thick hair band?

P.S. It's ladies night lah! Free leh!

It suddenly dawn on me that despite the woes of the Third World, of famine and over population and pollution, the world is indeed a very beautiful place, because we exist simultaneously in different time zones, right now, and such happens not just across different countries, but across different provinces.

Take India, or Thailand. Look at their pseuydo-Silicon Valley high techology vs. the villages. Or just cities and villages. It's so beautiful. No time travel machine is required. An hour bus ride from Bangkok to Ayuthaya and you have travelled 20 years into the past, where children did not bother about PS2, women are not anorexic, and you farm to earn a living.

And honestly, who can decide, who leads a better life? Do we feel sorry for the people we claim backdated? Because of their lack of technological advancements which, while makes our lives better, sometimes argubly necessary evil (as per General Paper in A levels).
