Losers Will Always Pick Losers
It's amazing that such a scandal tainted person can still walk among his "supporters" and garner votes to become the next President in the party. Totally no shame, no integrity, no self realisation.

What's even more surprising is that people actually voted for this guy. Goes to show the type of people in that party, doesn't it? All suck-ups, apple polishers with no back bones.

In other countries, you get caught with your pants down, you step down and walk out that door permanently. But in this country, you can still hold on to a high post, talk cock sing song and expect everyone to accept your behaviour. Only in Malaysia.

Beh Paiseh (not shy)
Case #1 - Invitation
The invite clearly says only you are invited. And the host has graciously explained to you the reason why he is unable to accommodate your partner. And yet you RSVP-ed yourself and your partner (because your partner was your ride - pun not intended). The host had to personally explain to you again why he cannot accommodate your partner. You eventually decided not to attend the event. Because your partner wasn't allowed to attend it.

Case #2 - Sandwich
A "Buy 1 Free 1" sandwich coupon means you actually split the cost for the sandwich. It doesn't mean you TAKE THE FREE sandwich and let the other person foot the entire bill. And to add insult to injury, you had to lie about paying the other person back when you were questioned about it. You eventually paid your share the following day, but I guess it's because you heard us talking about it LOL!

Case #3 - Hogging
It's selfish to hog up the whole court just for your kids to play, and deprive the others who had paid to go into the courts to play. The courts were booked for serious sports, not for little children to jump about and have family outings. If you and your kids really want to utilise the courts, maybe you should just pay for the full membership.

For crying out loud, have some common sense and manners wei. You can't blame people for talking about you, when you react in such a crude manner.

Of Chinese Wedding Dinners And The Boringness
*this post is merely the blogger's own opinion and if you don't like, then your problem lor :P

Hubby and I attended a wedding dinner last night, and as usual dinner started over an hour late. Seriously, why can't people just be on time? If the card says dinner starts at 7pm, get your fucking asses into the car and reach the venue by 7pm lah.

I think it's preposterous for people to arrive at the venue late, and simply assume that all dinners would start late. I think that it's a very very very bad habit that has been cultivated over the many many many years of such auspicious events. And people just don't bother to change their habits. After all, as the saying goes, old habits die hard. Especially more so for typical Chinese wedding dinners. Us Chinese folks have a fucking lot to learn.

I've always made it a point to reach early to a wedding dinner, Chinese or otherwise. It's called having manners and respect. For those of you that think it's ok to arrive late and assume that all wedding dinners start late anyway, well fuck you and your selfish manners :P

In a typical Chinese wedding dinner, there will always be the first dish march-in. You know, a line of servers holding up the first dish of the night (usually the Hot & Cold combination), parading it around, and then bowing their heads to the people seated at the bridal table, and then only serving the other tables. Let's not forget the music that accompanies the first dish.

I've lost count of the number of times restaurants play "Final Countdown" and Kitaro already :PpPpP Seriously, time to get updated with the gig, people. It's B-O-R-I-N-G to see such presentation these days. People are already starving their balls off, and yet have to endure the wait even longer just to see the food zipping by you. Like skip the music and parading and just serve the freaking food LOL!!!

Chinese wedding dinners should really be updated. The present style is so dull and predictable. Sien lan dou ah~

Of Mobile Phones And Being On The Road
I bet you, 95% of the population is guilty of this. Driving while talking on the mobile phone. Be it on the hands-free or not, 95% of the population will do this.

We've heard time and again, how dangerous it is to drive and talk on the mobile phone at the same time. The device creates a distraction, when the drive should really be concentrating on the road. Ok, so you say you use the hands-free or you're on the loudspeaker. It still doesn't change the fact that you're on the mobile and driving at the same time. The worser ones even SMSes while driving. How do they do that, I really salute them. And I also what to say what morons they are...!

I get annoyed when hubby uses his mobile while driving. Really annoyed :P One hand on the wheel, the other holding the mobile phone (loudspeaker function on). I really don't like it at all when he does that. I care for his safety. And when you're driving, you really need to concentrate sometimes, as you might already know, there are plenty of morons on the road.

I sometimes nag him (sorry dear!) about this, he knows that I'm only concern about this safety. And so I try to discourage him to answer phone calls when he's driving. It will take some perseverance on his end, and I hope he does persevere to resist picking up the phone whenever it rings. Just let the caller wait a while, chillax~

And if I get really REALLY annoyed I might just pick up the phone and tell the caller off. I don't fucking care how important your project is, my man is driving and his safety supersedes everything else. You want to talk to him, you talk to me first.

And some of the worse offenders... are iPhone users.

Confucius The Movie

Image taken from here.

I'm not one to study history, let alone ancient Chinese history. China's history is sooooo complex, and just too long for someone like me to read! :P Coupled the fact that I'm English educated, just reading the pinyin leaves me bewildered! I'll leave the history to the experts, although I do occasionally like to read about a little bit more about history, just to get a better idea of the events which have unfolded.

The movie Confucius (孔子) stars Chow Yun-Fatt as the lead role. Confucius existed about 3 centuries before Shih Huang Ti, the 1st emperor of China. So you can imagine the state of chaos Confucius was living in. War fare was common, poverty was a norm, and power struggle was the usual past time amongst the many lords.

Confucius was a teacher, a philosopher, a thinker. As Wikipedia puts it,
His philosophy emphasized personal and governmental morality, correctness of social relationships, justice and sincerity.
If one has good morals, good relationships and good virtue, one can lead by example and not rely on lineage nor connections. One would not need power no authority to live in this world. OK, I've never studied about Confucianism so I don't really know much about his teachings (so sue me, blek!). But what I do understand from his teachings are the very basic values of being a good human being.

And just like most teachers, you have your loyal disciples and your critics. Goes to show even in the olden days, you can't please everyone.

Chow Yun-Fatt portrayed the lead character very very well. Such a noble character~ Good to have you back, Fat-Korr! Regain your reputation as an actor! A GOOD ACTOR! Don't go back to Hollywood anymore! Hollywood just wants to sucker you into their web of deception! They've been giving you B-grade movies man!!! Come back to Hong Kong/China and make your movies here!

The movie left me feeling a little bad about myself. How sometimes I lose my temper so quickly and say harsh things. How sometimes my actions and thoughts may not be so commendable. I think as a human being, we're all guilty one way or another.

A Prayer Of Strength
Life is like a box of chocolate... You never know whatcha gonna get~
Forrest Gump

I've recently come to know a couple of rather disheartening news in regards to two friends of mine. Both of which saddens me and also brought upon hurt and sadness to my friends.

The first one, after almost a decade long relationship, the guy decided to call it quits. What saddens my friend more was that the guy, didn't know how to be a man at all. The many lame excuses that were given by him over the bad breakup was atrocious. To cut a long story short, he wanted a woman who would serve him, just like how his mother would. My friend was hurt of course, but it's also a blessing in disguise. This pussy of a man didn't deserve her at all. He's better off marrying a maid, or his mother.

Another friend of mine had just lost something very precious to her. And it pains me to hear that she has had to go the shit I've had to go through (twice) two years ago. I'm very sorry to hear the news, sweetie. If you need a shoulder to cry on, just call on me. You're not alone, your family and friends will always be by your side. Please take care of yourself, promise me that you would look after your health. Nothing is more important that your health, because without it, you cannot proceed to do other things.

My prayers to both my friends, is that you find the strength among your family and friends, and within yourselves, to stand up again and look forward. I hope that your scars would heal in time, and that you can continue to find love and come to realise our lives consist of different chapters, some pleasant, some not so pleasant. I hope that you do not get hung up on that one form of pain that has struck you, and neglect the many other beautiful things around that also makes life.

Namo Amithaba.
