变形金刚金刚

这象什么呢?


是我在看Transformers的时候吃的爆米花 (popcorn).
哈哈!看起来象怪物吧?

Transformers真的很精彩。虽然小时候就有这部卡通片,但是好像男生比较喜欢,所以我对它的故事不是很了解。看了电影才知道原来机械人是有感情的。其中老大Optimus Prime最有性格。

看完电影之后,在路上开车时,开始幻想,如果我前面的垃圾车,突然变身成为金刚,那多酷啊!

思潮起伏很


很喜欢最近的天气,不会太热,也不会太湿,让我很想捧着一本书,还有我最喜欢的咖啡,躲在一角,让人找不到。多自由!不过现在喝着自己泡的咖啡,和大家分享心声也是很大的享受。因为你们愿意听,所以我愿意写。真的很珍惜你们对我的关心和爱护。读到你们在tagboard留的话,真的让我很感动。可能因为成长的环境吧,我很少听到周围长辈对我说这样的话。久而久之就不再有期待,因为没有期待就不会失望嘛。不过如果让我意想不到,那就是bonus 啦!所以你们是我的惊喜,我的bonus! 谢谢,真的很爱你们!

我想唯一能报答你们的就是努力把工作做好,把自己最好的一面呈现给大家。你们为我加油,我也会发愤图强,不辜负大家!

有人问我除了咖啡还喜欢和什么饮料。我好像都喜欢刺激性的饮料,好像Teh-Si(奶茶),酸梅汁。偶尔也喜欢凉茶,果汁之类的饮料。不过我们公司餐厅的果汁档发明了果汁加Yakult,还真的蛮好喝的。其实在外面我很少叫饮料,可能拍戏累,喜欢喝自然水,滋润全身,也不会因为某种饮料遗留后的口感感到不舒服。况且,你们这么多人常嘱咐我多喝水,我怎么可以当耳边风呢?

好啦,咖啡喝完了,我也得去忙些别的,下次再聊吧!
希望大家有个美好的星期天。

韩国拉面

看了是不是会流口水?我现在自己看了都很想再吃。从来没有吃过又便宜又好吃的韩国拉面。就在Central Mall 的食阁。很多地方的Kimchi Ramen 看起来很辣,不过都淡淡没有味。不过这个真的不一样,可以算辣,不过我最爱吃辣辣的东西,所以还可以应付。而且很喜欢吃快熟面,你们说象不象呢?

L.O.V.E


Finally get down to watching this movie. I used to adore Jude Law, but that was when he acted with Nicole Kidman in Blue Mountain. In Alfie, he seemed like he’s playing himself, the playboy. His brownie points has just effectively dropped to zero.

In the final scene, he said he has everything, but no peace of mind. And when you don’t have that, you don’t have anything.

Hmm…interesting.

Well, the story goes he just can’t stick to one woman, call it commitment phobia, call it fleeting desires, the point is, the women give their all to him but gets nothing back, and he doesn’t feel bad about dumping them, or being dumped for that matter, until the end, when it bites back at him. Ah, that’s when he left the audience with that quote to think about.

Which reminded me of this article I read in a recent fashion magazine. There was a paragraph that mentioned how there are young successful divorcés who would date around post divorce. If they married young, they are doing so to make up for lost time; If they were dumped by their wives, they are doing so to boost their own ego. But after playing musical chairs, most of them would want to settle down, because nothing beats having someone to look after them, cook for them and be there for them at the end of the day.

Hmm, I guess that’s what Alfie is about too.

Some women think that’s so chauvinistic. In this egalitarian society, I guess, women are more empowered, and no longer need to take things lying down. But my stand is still quite traditional. I seriously don’t mind cooking and looking after the family while the man brings the bacon home, because that’s what I think a woman should and is capable of doing.

Now before all the ladies turn against me, this is purely the way I was brought up to think. So don’t hold it against me. Some values cannot change after so long. Still, I don’t particularly advocate being a housewife too, because homemakers also need to have their own hobbies, passion, or work, to keep them motivated, energised and youthful.

So how different are the wants of men and women?

I was having dinner with a girlfriend and she told me how she is facing quarter-life crisis. I don’t know what that really means (I guess it’s not something everyone goes through and even if we do, it turns out differently). Hers is an empty sort of feeling, of not knowing what you are really pursuing that will complete your life.

I suggested that she probably needs a man. She denies.
Then maybe it’s romantic love she wants. She denies.

Gee, women are always in self-denial. Haha, it’s true! I admit to that sometimes. Hee hee…

She says she doesn’t want to have a serious relationship.
She says it’s tiring to get to know someone all over again.

True, but isn’t the lack of stability that’s really tiring? I mean, when you date around as opposed to having a serious relationship. And you keep having to introduce yourself to many people instead of spending time getting to know someone better. At the end of the name game, you realise you don’t really know anyone well, and they don’t really know you. Sort of like Alfie, who is rich on the outside but poor emotionally.

You see, I figure the entire universe consists of relationships so how can we human beings not need relationships? Sure, we have friendship and family companionship, who needs love? I beg to differ. I think different forms of relationships satisfy different aspects of our lives. And romantic love is one big concept that plays a huge part in our lives.

Otherwise, why would people like me be so hooked on to melodramatic Korean love stories? Why would people commit crimes and do silly things when love goes wrong? Why is BGR such a big issue in schools and at home?

Because when you love and be loved, nothing else matters.

Sleepless

My third coffee of the day. Now I’m Sleepless in Singapore…

平时咖啡对我没什么困扰,晚上喝了还是能够入睡。不过这是我今天的第三杯,所以现在清醒的很。糟了!

新达城变了

天啊,我真的太久没有踏进新达城(Suntec City)竟然有那么多改变。我太孤陋寡闻了!刚才和朋友吃完饭后,决定去走一走,消化晚餐,没想到,我们两就好像旅客一样,对整个环境有点陌生。有扩大商店的范围是好事,因为目的是要让购物者有更多选择。新达城的某个角落也增设了一个室内音乐水池,和灯光的配合下,还蛮有外国情调的。当时正播着 ”What A Wonderful World”,真的好象在另一个世界闲逛。虽然店都关了,但是清静也是一种享受。

鱼儿也要看电视的。。。

真的好新颖,又可以赏鱼,又可以看最新电影的预告片。

Cars and Such

I think this car is cute! I’d probably want to drive it for fun, but I doubt it’s practical for me because I have far too many things to store. But then again, the advice I got the last time I bought my current car was that a small car may have less space, but that will prevent me from over-cluttering it.

True true.

I used to like driving performance cars because I actually enjoy driving and with a good car, you really appreciate what it can do. Couple of years back, I went for a BMW advanced driving course, that taught things like proper driving posture, defensive driving, over-steering, under-steering etc etc. It was only at the race course in Malaysia, that I could ram the accelerator of the BMW 330i without worrying about crashing or getting caught. The 330i is a very stable car and the way it hugs the road when you corner makes it all the more exciting to go fast. Ok, I admit, speeding is thrilling and I love it! Moreover, that sense of thrill can’t be replicated anywhere else. Hmm, then again, I take it back. Maybe on deathly roller coasters too, because I remembered that feeling the last time I went to Cape Town and attempted “suicide”. But that’s another story for another time.

The thing is, sitting on a roller coaster, you’re not in control, unlike driving. That’s why it’s adrenalin rush from fear versus adrenalin rush from excitement. I’d choose the latter. Let me reaffirm my stand, I enjoy the drive very much, but I do not advocating speeding.

Now for me, practicality overrides desire, that’s why I sold my dear Alfie and switched to something more economical. I still want to test performance cars if I’m privileged enough to be invited, but in the meantime, I’m perfectly happy with what I have.
