This will be one post which there wun be any photos, ok maybe one at the end of it. Nothing much really, juz wanna talk cock on my blog n write down my thoughts.
I was on bus 95 to school ystd noon when I overheard a conversation between a guy n a girl, possibly NUS students too. I was at the back row with myself n they were directly diagonally in front of me. Here goes the conversation...
Male: Eh, go grow urself long hair n be a real woman!!
Female: Wad's wrong with my hair length?!! (she's having close to shoulder length kinda hair)
Male: A real woman shd haf long hair ma!! Short hair is like ugh....
Female: Ya la ya la.. U only like those long hair, pretty pretty one.. Den next time ur wife is those kind stay at home, wash ur clothes, cook for u, iron ur clothes, make u sandwiches rite?!!
Male: No lor!! It's so disgusting la!! I might as well get myself a maid rite!! I dun like dumb women lor!! I like those intelligent kinds!
Female: More intelligent than u can??
Male: No no no, cannot..
Female: Eh, more intelligent than u ones are easier to find, the dumber than u ones are damn hard to find.. (I ALMOST BURST OUT LAUGHING AT THIS PART!!)
Aww man, I love that girl!! Hahaha... I would like to "eavesdrop" their conversation more but then I had to alight at Science faculty. Stupid guy really, sounds very much like a MCP. Girls with short hair are not real women? Den I guess he better be a REAL MAN when some things happen. N the part abt intelligence was really LAUGH MY ASS OFF!!
Seriously, I find nothing wrong if a woman is more intelligent than me, but of cos she muz at least not insult me, not damage my pride n gotta treat me wif dignity. It's alright if my wife earns more than me, but I cannot be a slouch either. If men can't get out of this mindset, den i guess alot of them will grow old lonely cos females nowadays are mostly highly educated.
Always remember, no matter how strong, well paid, intelligent, high flying a woman is, at the end of the day she's still a woman. She still needs someone to care, pamper n love her. No woman is diesel powered; totally hardy n not needing any maintenance n tender care. If the local men carry on like this, den dun rant(kpkb) when the angmo guys get the fuck(s).
Ok, enuff abt women. Now I wanna talk abt my frens. Juz found out recently dat 2 of my guy frens are puffing away when previously they weren't. Not stereotyping here, but they're both actually very good persons whom I thought will not succumb to the lure of the smoke.
Both are schooling, n cited reasons are the same. Stress n unhappiness. I agree dat life ain't a bed of roses, it's a bitch n it sucks. But I dun agree with getting rid of all these rubbish by adding more rubbish. Using another poison to curb a poison is not the ideal way if there exist non-poisons to curb it in the first place. My own father is a smoker, n he states the exact same reason to puff; stress. N i owas hate it when he says dat ever since i was young.
I hate his stinky cigg smoke, I hate it when he blatantly smokes in front of me since i was a kid, i hate it when his cigg ash falls onto the kiddy me n sometimes burnt little holes into my clothes, i hate it when i rush over to hold his hands only to be burnt by a burning cigg between his fingers, i hate it when he owas needs to smoke after a meal, i hate it when he likes to smoke before/while driving n stink up the whole car, i hate it when he doesn't discourage me from smoking n in turn say dat i will grow up to become a smoker like him whenever i scolded him for it.
Maybe dat is good, cos i promise myself i will nv grow up to be a smoker like my father. N juz in case u wonder, he had a cardiac arrest a decade ago in his early 40s but survived w/o any implications after angioplasty surgery. Cause of the attack is smoking, enuff said.
Stress, all of us will have it. No doubt I have it too. But I guess it's how u handle it dat's crucial. For me, i'll do some things to help reduce it
1. Go jogging. My healthiest n bestest option. Makes me feel free when the wind blows onto my skin. Sweating it out n venting out all my frustrations. It always feels damn good after a run.
2. Go eating. Get some nice sinful food to reward myself. Nothing beats good food landing on my tastebuds n satisfying my stomach
3. Go shopping. Not really recommended but if u can afford it, try it. If i'm feeling down, i'll head down to sim lim n walk for hours. Looking at computers parts soothes my mood, call me weirdo geek if u want, but it works for me. N if i find something i can afford, i'll buy it n bring home to play.
4. Friends. I'm blessed with some really great frens, n sometimes a good chat is all u need to get rid of those unhappiness n stress.
5. Play game. I'm not really a gamer though, but playing computer games do help. I like racing n RPG games. The sense of victory within the game provides the ecstasy dat will make me happy.
6. Go cycling. Long distance cycling takes my mind off the troubles. I get to see nice scenery along the way n I can do wad i like best, which is taking nice photos.
7. Watch videos. I'm a couch potato to some extent n i luv watching videos, be it dramas or movies. Having a great Audio/Visual system helps alot cos the loud explosive/action scenes have the effect of blowing my troubles away.
8. Cook. Trying out new recipes n seeing my effort ending up with some really nice tasting food makes me happy. Cooking takes my mind away from the troubles.
9. Go rounding. For me, driving is a passion rather than a chore. When i feel down, i'll take the 4-wheeler out for a spin. No, no crazy speeding n drifting stunts, leave those on the track, keep it off the streets. Wind down the window n feel the wind in my hair, coupled with some favourite songs playing on the stereo, it makes me feel good. Or switch off the stereo n listen to the engine "sing" to me at every gear change although Sunny ain't exactly a gd singer. Stop over at some place n ponder through things. Fav locations include Yishun dam, Mt. Faber, Changi Coast Road, ECP, Pasir Ris/Changi beach, Kallng Basin, Marina Barrage n Labrador Park.
There are 101 ways to curb stress. Smoking is not the only option. It's detrimental to ur health(plus ppl around u) n it's damn fucking expensive. Get rid of this habit starting today. To sign off this post, i'll post up a picture.
