Reflections: This Acts as A Closure July 24, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Emotions & Feelings, Random Thoughts.
Time to move on. I have read it but no comments will be there. I hope that this post will serve as a closure for what happened. First off, I will no longer be that active in there. Second, it doesn’t mean that I won’t be commenting. Third, once things have changed, it can be difficult to go back to the way things were but I’ll deal with it.
What I have learnt from this incident is that while I have tried my best to be calm and fair, I shouldn’t be hurting the ones dearest to me. My method of trying not to hurt anyone is not a good method. Or I wasn’t thinking rationally, logically or whatever you call it. The dust has settled down now and I have thought about it for quite some time.
It’s a time for me to do some reflections and self-improvement. I’m always trying learn things as I go along although there are things I may disagree with. Entitlement to own opinions is something to be respected. Forcing one’s opinion down another’s throat is not what I want to do but if you agree, then it’s fine by me.
Insults shall not be tolerated, even in this blog or any of my blogs. Comments can be left but no flaming. I will stop the comments section from being opened if such abuse is found.
Where was I? Oh. My lessons learnt. I hope that I will bear these lessons in mind that I won’t be accused of sitting on the fence or siding with others when I’m supposed to give my opinions. With this, I hope to close this issue and move on.
He Should Be Castrated! July 23, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Emotions & Feelings, Random Thoughts, Relationships.
I believe this guy needs a huge beating in the head and castrated. He got off scot-free after the case was dismissed because no one understood his language. What in the world is the judge doing? Perhaps the girl will grow up and take her revenge but she ends up in jail because she may kill him in future? Does such drastic measures have to be taken so that something will be done?
She is scared for life because of his hideous act. She won’t be able to maintain any proper relationships because of him. She may be harbouring suicide thoughts because of it. She will fear all males because of him. She will resent the law because no one helped her. He is free to terrorise some other young girls because of it. Can someone post a photo of him so that everyone will keep a look out for this terror?
Update: Found the news that has a photo of this guy. The young girl is a relative. He must not get away scot-free. I think he could be faking his weak understanding of English.
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.
It Should Have Stopped but It Didn’t July 19, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Emotions & Feelings, Friendship, Random Thoughts, Relationships, Romance/ Love.
That was uncalled for. I feel that I’m the one in the wrong when all I wanted to was to avoid blowing things out of proportion. It seems that I was doing it wrong. I have no mood to work and now I feel like curling up at home and crying my heart out.
I felt that the post was totally written out of pure hatred and emotional. There was no need to call anyone names but the label was too strong. The reaction was too strong and profanities were used. That was uncalled for. Even a ban was called for. That was insulting.
Even assumptions were drawn concluding that a “15-year-old” was sprouting it. Now, if that assumption was drawn, why did you continue to fuel yourself? Then wouldn’t you be the one who is immature?
I’m trying to cool things down but maybe I have done it wrong. However, it was not understood. Perhaps, I should stay away from that place from now on. Yes. I should.
Breakfast does not entice me right now.
Inconsiderate Man Taking Up Space in MRT July 6, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Emotions & Feelings, Random Thoughts, Transport, Travel.
I’m not one who would take photos of anyone on the whim of my fancy. In fact, this guy managed to make me fume with anger to take photos of him. I was on my way home and as usual, the train was packed and when the doors opened, I saw him sitting at the side without a care in the world. Since I didn’t want to crush any bones of mine during the movement or stopping or sudden stops, I went to the available space that was just next to him.
The train started moving. During a stop, there was someone who was moving past me to alight and I accidentally stepped on the guy-who-was-on-the-floor with his hand as support. When you are sitting down, unless the train jerks to a stop, you don’t need your hand as support, right? He needed it all the time and use the dirty hand that had touched the god knows how many germs had been collected all day floor and tapped on my foot to make me look at him. He was indignant that I apologised to him for stepping on his hand.

I didn’t care as I was busy nursing my cough. Be thankful that I didn’t make your hands bleed profusely. If you don’t want your precious hand to be stepped on, don’t put it there and don’t sit down in a crowded train just because you are tired la! Use your brains lor! You got one, right? There were so many people in the train and you want a seat all the way to your stop by blocking the rest who are also trying to get home as fast as possible too. So, be considerate can or not?

Ironically, I managed to take a sit so that I could capture his actions. This is another addition to my pet peeves on people who don’t even know how to take a simple train ride besides preventing you from boarding it.

As opposed to Sicarii’s hypothesis that only “popular” bloggers are being read, I shall post some links here that I read because of the catchy title and the partial text that is available.
- Do you have Transformers toys? Those that transform into jets, cars, beasts, and other things? Nike has them transform into Nike shoes and when they transform, they are still wearing Nike shoes!
- Have you said something nice today? It’s always heart warming to hear someone say, “Hey, forget that you said the wrong thing. Your presentation slides were well thought out.”
- I haven’t been reading for quite some time, these books that transform into mirrors may just be it but they are expensive though.
- Seems like there are new ways to cheat in exams. No wonder the exam rooms are no longer in lecture halls.
- If you don’t have a letter opener, this bunny will help you.
- I didn’t know that the use of a handkerchief and tissue can start a debate. Old post but interesting thoughts on it.

A Step Towards My Interest July 1, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Career, Emotions & Feelings, Random Thoughts.

Being a Scientific Technical Writer is interesting. The pay is $18 per hour in USD. How cool is that for a part time position? I know, I know, the grass always looks greener on the other side but then again, I’m considering a change in my current path although not in the bio area. I’m not even qualified for it!
My friend recently suggested a few options since my current workplace has so many departments and a few are relevant to my interest. I told her why I would never be able to fit in. However, I was thinking about it in the showers and thinking along another way instead of being stuck in my mentality. At that moment, I decided that I wanted to talk to my manager about my interest. Now, with just one more day to Monday, I’m suddenly wary.
I must be strong. In order to fight for my happiness. To achieve my dream. My friend is right, since I have the opportunities here with options in front of me and the manager is approachable, I should grasp hold of the situation now instead of wallowing in crankiness that lasted for a day.

Random reads for today.
- This girl is a spoilt brat. Her mother gave her a Lexus a day before her actual birthday party for crying out loud.
- For the dads, they may want to use the GPS to track where their daughters are despite saying they trust them. Thankfully, I don’t have a car.
- Some odd information about the human world. I didn’t know that “The magic word “Abracadabra” was originally intended for the specific purpose of curing hay fever.”
- Our mailboxes definitely can’t be compared to these.
- We can actually do these 22 things for free.
- There are 46 Laws of Anime. Gee, now that you mentioned it:
6. Law of Temporal Variability
Time is not a constant. Time stops for the hero whenever he does something ‘cool’ or ‘impressive’. Time slows down when friends and lovers are being killed and speeds up whenever there is a fight.
- Always wanted to find that sound you wanted to hear? This may be the solution for you.
- For those who have writer’s block, these prompts may just be the cure to unblock it.
Paris Hilton, The Heiress June 28, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Dramas, Emotions & Feelings, Random Thoughts, Television.
Paris Hilton, Paris Hilton. I
hear see online every time. All the blogs are awashed with her name. Is there no getting away with her? No. She is the heiress to the Hilton hotels and any man who can actually manage to tame her shall be allowed a piece of her inheritance. Assuming he can even capture her heart and he is actually allowed to own part of it.
She seems to like lapping all the attention on her, both positive and negative. Seriously, what was she thinking when she said “I hope to be an example to the kids.” when she was going to be jailed or released from jail? I can’t a link to a report, now where did I read it from? Anyway, her stint in The Simple Life lead me to further conclude that she is just someone who has rich parents and doesn’t know how to appreciate the meaning of being poor.
Even her initial scandalous sex romps failed to dampen her high-spirited ways. She broke the law by driving drunk. The suspended license didn’t deter her. Her jail term from the trial to the jail-time to her release were sensational. OMG. How can she generate so much publicity and still manage to charm others, I don’t know.
There’s a parody on her hamburger commercial. Not sure how long ago but the guy in the parody was real funny and vomit-worthy at the same time.
It’s Natural to Step Back June 28, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Emotions & Feelings, Random Thoughts.
Going to work early everyday can be taxing but I still have work because it’s the only way to gain some fixed income every month instead of waiting for blogging income. I don’t get any here. I can if I want to but I prefer the pressure to come from work rather than blogging, so it’s best to stay this way.
I was buying some bread when some lady was trying to get to the tray at the cashier, so she tried to cut through me. If I could shrink myself, I would. I was queueing to pay for my bread and had to step back. The aunty behind frowned and tsked at me loudly when I stepped accidentally on her toes. I apologised. Frankly speaking, I was already moving back and you should have moved more towards the right than blocking the entrance on the left so that everyone else could move, right?
I don’t understand why the lady had cut from right to left either. My natural reaction is to move back if someone in front moves back so that my precious toes won’t get stepped on. High heels can do their worst. I don’t want to risk losing my toe nail again.
Today, I needed a laugh. This provided it. As stated, parents, grandparents, whoever, please note that it is totally wrong for kids to do it. And, the owner, please change the spacing or your advertiser. They can’t even do it right.
Forget the unpleasant incident, it’s going to be Friday soon and weekends are meant to be enjoyed. Er, provided you work 5-weekday week.
