Lee Kuan Yew on Deng Xiao Ping

" I met this small man when he came to Singapore in November 1978. This small four-foot-eleven man, but a giant of a leader. He gave me a long spiel—the Russian bear, Vietnam was his Cuba in the Far East, danger for you. I had provided him with a Ming vase spittoon, and I put an ashtray in front of him. He neither smoked nor used the spittoon. The same arrangements at dinner. He did not use either. At dinner he said, "I must congratulate you, you've done a good job in Singapore." I said, "Oh, how's that?" He says, "I came to Singapore on my way to Marseilles in 1920. It was a lousy place. You have made it a different place." I said, "Thank you. Whatever we can do, you can do better. We are the descendants of the landless peasants of south China. You have the mandarins, the writers, the thinkers and all the bright people. You can do better." He looked at me, but said nothing. In November 1992, during his famous tour of the southern provinces, he said, "Learn from Singapore," and "Do better than them." I thought, oh, he never forgot what I said to him. "

Christmas this year had warmth. Cousins and friends came over. Even unexpected visitors arrived!


Tomorrow is Boxing Day, that equates to shopping and Narnia!

Because the pagans and Christ intolerant individuals play a major part in secular society, they have devised a way to amputate the 'CHRIST' from Christmas and in place affixed a letter 'X' to denounce Christ.

X-mas, is derogatory. I do see the convenience but i always do tell myself to scrawl the extra 5 letters in honour of that name.

I bear the the capacity to detain my proclivity in composing this entry. To repress would do the initial iniquity further injustice.

Thank You and goodbye. Shall be beguiled aside tangible and intangible traces of Melbourne. Sorry and all the sentiments reminiscent of parting. Please think of me as i would you.

Forget me not.

Tonight was crazy. I was speeding happily home thinking of the noodles i could eat when a police car appeared out of the blue and pulled me over. My heart shattered...

I remembered the last time this happened, i was fined $300 and i lost almost all my points. I was devastated... Anyhow i do not know why i kept laughing and smiling when the police came to my car window. I handed him my license and he went back to the police vehicle behind me. The most annoying thing was the high beam that shone straight into my rear view mirror. Tsk!

Anyway after a span of time that seemed like forever, they droved right up to my window, handed me my license, smiled and said "Have a Merry Christmas and tell your friends about how ace the police are."

Haha and for some unexplainable reason, i did the Thai bow to them. Huh? What was i doing? But i knew i was grinning and giggling from ear to ear.

It is the final night of my sojourn here and already i can feel the antipation of the emotional detachment looming tomorow evening.

You forge these companionships, bond over the days and weeks and then go home denied the knowledge of when you would ever cross paths again. More often than not, never.

I still recall my other two vacations this year. There are all these wonderful people you meet. And then you vacate their residence slowly. Packing your belongings. Watching them recede into the distance as you ride away in the hotel shuttle or glimpse at their silhouette dissipate from behind the departure gates.

December has always been the wistful catalyst for transition.

Tomorrow on my immediate arrival in Melbourne airport, i will be sending off yet another close friend of mine. I wonder what the remainder of my vacation holds for me.

Slacking Off

Hmm... It is the holidays. The conclusion of university means the mental lapse of my brain. Hence, i will slacken on my awe inspiring blogging. Rather, i will blog with photographs.

Havent we all heard the age old cliche pictures are worth a thousands words? I guess i will benefit from this alibi for the present time.

Okay, the past couple of days were pretty... fun in a way, but concluded in a utterly traumatic experience. Since i was flying off on the 6th, i wanted to look impeccable. Fortunately i played safe and had a hair cut today which is like 2 weeks before the 6th. God oh god! I can not even start to describe how horrid the result of my hair visit was. Having a not bad, but extremely bad hair cut is so traumatic and sad. Call me vain but to tell you folks the truth, i want to have a good and stylish mane.

I bet there are some malicious people out there snickering at the thought of my having a hair snag.

It was a usual hair visit. Told him to cut my hair as usual then buried my face into the magazines. Minutes later i looked up and literal shouted: "OH MY GOD!!!" I think i startled people around me. He totally shaved my head like a.... Pinepapple! Just visualise my side scalp like the pineapple fruit with the top of my head like the thorny leaves. I went beserk!

Sigh i do not even want to recall today's episode. Horrific... just horrific... I can not possibly wear a cap everywhere during my trip! What more to say when i go clubbing. Shiet!

Anyway we started looking frantically through the hair magazines to try fix the mess. I could not even think straight... So we tried improvising with the SHIT we had on his hands. Tried this and that but to no avail. SO, he had to cut this *bleep bleep*.

I do not want to be excessive with my complaining. Will leave it here.

For your information, the perpetrator of this crime is Laly Kwok, working at Q&A on Russell St. next to China Bar. Sigh... I think my Von Dutch cap will be my faithful companion for the next few weeks.

Shoot Laly!

Ok, but prior to this nightmare, i made dinner for a few friends at their apartment. I made Nasi Lemak...

Following are photos in sequential order whilst preparing the sambal belachan and beef rendang (Borneon indigenous style).

What a shame in all the hustle and bustle, i forgot to put roasted peanuts. Dang! Oh and by the way, everything was made from scratch. Ehehe.

But it was all good. A couple of guys brought cab sav and fruity wine. Good accompaniments.

An excellent weekend to conclude the end of exams.

Hope this remains a consistent pattern for the rest of the holidays haha.

You know that feeling? The feeling preceding being emotionally transgressed. The spine tingling reverberations thoughout your body just before the nauseating sensation. Then it hits. You reach an antecedent of a downward spiral. Then we close our eyes and lean over resting our heads on folded arms on the table.

Somehow, a kind of peace is found... akin to nihility, that nothing really matter, that we could retire here forever.

People dress to identify with demographical, geographical or style elements. Japanese, Hong Kongers, European, Punk, Street and whatsoever.

But for some, they elect not to be assimilated with any groups in any way. Not Street, European nor Australian.

Hence, attention drawn is not to an aspired genre of style, but a style custom made with a dash of improvisation.
There exist not one world, but six billion realms.

Ambassadors of Love

Few as they are, they reveal to us yet another leverage at an elevation above our own. When we surmised our concept of the word was sufficient in order to execute OUR own legacy of love, we are interrupted by people whose definitions far eclipse our own... Far more superior, far more hollistic, diminishing the rest.

To do something stupid.

To feel alive.

And to know that i have made you happy,

then i have done my job.

People take advantage,

people laugh,

but if no one believes in love,

then what would others have?

I know that in this lifetime no one is going to be able to show the perfect romance.

If i can give it to someone and make their life special,

just seeing it in their eyes,

and feeling it in their kiss.

It is enough.

You are at this point of the year where the transition has begun to roll. Images of the current year flashing back and forth in your mind and at the same time anticipating the new year and what it will unfold.

For me, i am excited. Ecstatic. Anticipating the new opportunities and life that will be in store for me.

I cannot wait!

Mellow My Mind

Been bogged down of late. The prologue of the final and conclusive impediment shall be superseded abruptly with the epilogue of a period of this life. Things will slip with a blur from then on. The annums speeding through to an ambivalent, unthreaded way of existence. Like a tree branch, a sprout so out of place, so unbelonging.

This part of it, a diminutive scrawl in the continuity of our allowances on earth. It proved a soul-searching experience. A stanza definitive of the rest of the one identity beholded.

The stage concluding... The curtains drawing back. We have reached the final leaves of the pages. Never to unfold again.

Here from the top of the mountain, i see you there... In the cool night air... Someday in my life, someday in my life...
