Do You Have Friends Who Are… Lesbians? July 19, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Emotions & Feelings, Food and Drinks, Random Thoughts, Relationships.
During lunch, the topic of lesbian came up when my colleague asked if I have such friends. No. Not that I know of, anyway. Her housemate had asked her the question because she felt she was being wooed by one of her colleagues. She asked my colleague to touch her. Her hand, I mean. She obliged. Her housemate said, she didn’t feel strange but when her colleague touched her, she felt tingly all over.
So, the questions started coming, how would she know that her colleague was one? Did she display anything that would be evidience to her sexuality? No. Her housemate had asked the colleague directly. Vehement denial. In this society, who would want to be ostracized?
This is a sensitive topic. While lesbians were not discussed recently, not that I have read recently, homsexuality was debated. An MP was asked to reflect on people’s views instead of being myopic. Although he wasn’t accused of being myopic directly.
This doctor pointed out her concerns of gay and homsexsual books that were easily available in North America next to the children’s section. At the same time voiced her reasons for educating her children in Singapore.
I wonder what will happen in future.
I Feel Unhealthy July 15, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Food and Drinks, General Sports, Health and Fitness, Random Thoughts.
We all need food. We have been told of the various types of information on fats, transfat, unsaturated, saturated, and lord knows what other terms. It seems an endless list of finding the best and healthiest food in the world.
We have the food pyramid and other diagrams to help us eat healthily but have we taken heed? There are so many junk foods like potato chips, yam chips, French Fries, etc. Often, the sinful foods beckon to us in a hypnotic way. We savour the taste of golden brown hash browns, toasted bread and many others. They taste so good, right? Except, it’s not healthy. Darn it, I like my bread toasted just slightly brown.
I’m getting fatter in the middle at this rate. Speaking of which, it’s been quite some time since I last exercise besides climbing the stairs.
Sleepy Weekend July 14, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Food and Drinks, Just For Fun, Random Thoughts, Relationships, Romance/ Love.

Spent my weekend with DD. Took MC for Friday not because it was Friday the 13th but because I was just too tired from the lack of sleep by the nightly coughing. Thankfully, most of the tasks have been completed, I hope. I tried to make some pancakes from the pancake mix and it was terrible. The pancakes were out of shape. The 1st was out of shape and charred. 😥 I had tried at home and it was round. Maybe I’m not used to the pan. I made a few more and none of them turned out decent! Although, one looked heart-shaped. However, DD happily tore it into half.
No point taking photos of my mesh up pancakes. So sad. I didn’t know how to use a pan. I used a wok the last time. The pancakes turned out fine. I need more practice. DD made me some spaghettis, way better than the 1st time with them not so well cooked. Yummy. No photos either. I think Keropokman would have taken way much yummier photos of the meal than I would have.
Are SG Girls Materialistic? July 3, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Career, Family, Food and Drinks, Friendship, Random Thoughts, Relationships, Romance/ Love.
A comment here states that Singaporean women are materialistic. I wonder if the progress of this country has made the women materialistic. It has often been in discussion that men and women are equal of some sorts. Women should be able to work and still clean the house after a hard day’s work while the men should be able to enjoy the warm home-cooked meal after a hard day’s work. Now that women are able to study, women should be doing what men does, here, men complete NS and so must the women too. Then they will not complain about sissy men and all.
Just last week, a colleague was stating the cost of his wedding, estimated to be 25k for the dinner itself. The cost of the flat and renovation have not been factored in yet. Why such a high cost? Parents prefer 9 course dinner. Hotels and restaurants charge peak rates for dinners held during the weekends. That’s where they rake in the money.
Although being a filthy rich guy may make you “hotter” than those handsome but poor guys, it doesn’t make sure the girl stays with you if you ain’t got the character. Mindsets here have not changed by leaps and bounds. Guys still have to pay for the majority of the wedding, it’s no wonder the marrying age is getting older and why girls are dating those old men with cash to spare. They don’t get married too old. That’s for some girls.
A materialistic girl is someone who will stay with that guy only when he can lavish gifts and expensive holiday trips on her. Once, he hits a low, expect her to disappear. This post, however, degrades the guy’s perspective.
The Water Tastes Awful July 3, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Food and Drinks, Health and Fitness, Random Thoughts.

I’m sick. Urgh! Been drinking water since this morning. How I wished that I can stay at home and sleep the illness away. Unfortunately, I’ve limited MCs due to the contract. Thankfully, it isn’t that cold here or I really would need the doctor’s help.
Now my throat is dry and hurts when I swallow. The medicine for the cough helped a bit. I wonder how to stay awake when all I want to do now is sleep.
Now that I’ve drunk quite a lot of water, it tastes awful. Argh.

Some reads to feast on and enjoy.
- For the surfers, can you beat the rats? The rats are way too cool.
- Now, to earn some spare cash, perhaps Blogitive could be another option to try out. It says that you can earn at least $1500 per month. In USD?
- Chinese shares seems to be falling. I wonder if the Olympics would actually help fuel the shares. Oh and I love the mascots. Pandas are cute.
- Wondering if you are unimportant? Everyone will ignore you.
- There’s a new food, not available here, definitely. It’s dick. And it’s yummy.
- I’ve always loved animated gif.
- I wonder if a map can be as colourful as Bruceville. Bruce reminds me of Bruce Lee.
- Children learn from adults. They do what they see despite us telling them the opposite. Sad to see that negative things are being taught nowadays.
No Outside Food Allowed June 20, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Career, Food and Drinks, Random Thoughts.

Aunty from coffeeshop: No outside food allowed here. (pointed to the A4 sized paper on the pillar)
Me: Uh. (nodded head and continued my eating lunch)
The point was that I didn’t have anything to eat there. My colleagues were sick of the other coffeeshop that sold fried kway tiao and laksa. Only these two were decent enough to them. I had to buy something I could eat from the coffeeshop and lunched with them. It was either lunch alone or with them. I picked the latter.
Frankly speaking, I wouldn’t go to that coffeeshop but majority wins. I don’t mind buying packaged food but most places do not allow outside food. As if I would understand outside food in the first place. Is that even the correct term for it?
Can anyone suggest a better way to disallow food not sold by the vendors in the premise?

Worthy reads for today.
- Translated station names for Stockholm Metro. My picks are Pigeon Nest, Headtown, Clog Mountain, Raspberry Mountain, Parch Ant, Exhale, Fathertown and Sharp Nude.
- Typical way of pushing the trolley home and leaving it on the pavement. So, how “world-class” citizens are we again?
- Apparently, the IT support here allows spam. Gee, MSN, Youtube and other time-wasting sites are banned but spams are welcome?
- Did I mention that squirrels are way too cute?
- Now, if only I can get Latte to snorgle.
- I love ice-cream but this is too expensive and really, why does it need diamonds?
- Erm, anyone up for tattoos? They sure are geeky.
- Sometimes, we may be judgemental but no matter what others say about your blog, we will not bow to them. Trolls will always be there but we stand strong.
- Aye, a bison scare. I wonder if I would be able to see a real one though.
- I wonder if more solar-celled phones will be out in future.
Them Pesk Ants! ARGH! June 18, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Animals, Food and Drinks, Random Thoughts.
Ants are pesky. Some ants bite. There are many types of ants. I keep seeing them in my cubicle. Since the 1st day I started work. I didn’t bring in anything yet. However, since this is inherited cubicle, I can’t complain. There are others who don’t have their own desks and still have to work.
Today is the last straw. I shall have to use something that will repel the ants. The list here has a few things that are affordable and hopefully will reduce/eliminate this little crawlies sharing my desk.
Shall start with the baby powder first.
Next, have to find a way to repel mosquitoes.
