October 2006


Propensity for Monogamy:

Your propensity for monogamy is high.
You find it easy to be devoted and loyal to one person.
And in return, you expect the same from who you love.
Any sign of straying, and you’ll end things.

Experience Level:

Your experience level is high.
You’ve loved, lost, and loved again.
You have had a wide range of love experiences.
And when the real thing comes along, you know it!


Your dominance is low.
This doesn’t mean you’re a doormat, just balanced.
You know a relationship is not about getting your way.
And you love to give your sweetie a lot of freedom.


Your cynicism is medium.
You’d like to believe in true and everlasting love…
But you’ve definitely been burned enough to know better.
You’re still an optimist, but you also are a realist.


Your independence is high.
You don’t need to be in love, and sometimes you don’t even want love.
Having your own life is very important for you…
Even more important than having a relationship.

(PS: Hehe. Once I start, I can’t stop. The quizzes are so fun to try. =P)

Love Swans

Ja.NICE, You fall in love quickly and easily. And very often.

You give and take equally in relationships.

You need your space and privacy. You don’t like to be smothered.

You’re secretly hoping your partner will change for you.

You stay in love for a long time, even if you aren’t loved back. When you fall, you fall hard.

Keys of My Heart 

Ja.NICE, You are attracted to those who have a split personality – cold as ice on the outside but hot as fire in the heart. In love, you feel the most alive when your partner is patient and never willing to give up on you.

You’d like your lover to think you are optimistic and happy.

You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and difficult to please.

Your ideal relationship is lasting. You want a relationship that looks to the future… one you can grow with.

Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.

You think of marriage something you’ve always wanted… though you haven’t really thought about it.

In this moment, you think of love as something you don’t need. You just feel like flirting around and playing right now.

(PS: Wow, this is pretty accurate although I am not sure about the part that I like men with a split personality. Hahaha.)

Real Friends 

I thought of a guy friend today. We used to be good friends, or so I thought we were. We had a lot of fun working together and hanging out after work with other friends. He always seemed like a nice person, very cool and calm, sensible and responsible. I adored him.  

Like all good things must end, our friendship came to a sudden halt when he saw the unlovable side of me. I was embroiled in a fight with someone else and anger made me bitter and revengeful. Instead of pointing out my mistakes, he chose to abandon me and walk away from me. Maybe he was too shocked to find out I wasn’t the sweet person he thought I was. 

I didn’t get any clue from him that I was no longer his friend. After the saga, I tried keeping in touch with him and couldn’t fathom why he completely ignored me. It was much later on that I realized he only wanted the lovable side of me as a friend, not the unlovable side of me as a total package for our friendship. 

Among the group of friends whom I hung out with, the girls stayed with me. They embraced me as their friend despite seeing the ugly and unlovable me. It didn’t matter to them that I was bitter and revengeful and illogical in my fit of anger. They remembered the lovable me and allowed the ugly, unlovable me to surface and still accepted me as their friend.

Ironically another guy friend who was the least unexpected to stay with me continued to keep in touch. It was not until that moment when he told me the truth and pointed out my mistake that I realized he was actually my real friend, not the other guy. 

I found myself silly to think that people we had fun together with were our good friends. They were good only when we were having fun together but that was it. They were not there to give us their unconditional love and friendship. Lets put it this way:  for someone who doesn’t understand the true meaning of friendship, he or she would never be anyone’s real friend.

“All marriages are happy. It’s the living together afterward that causes all the trouble.” -Raymond Hull


“Marriage: A legal or religious ceremony by which two persons of the opposite sex solemnly agree to harass and spy on each other for ninety-nine years, or until death do them join.” -Elbert Hubbard

“I love being married. It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.” – Rita Rudner  


“I never married because I have three pets at home that answer the same purpose as a husband. I have a dog that growls every morning, a parrot that swears all afternoon and a cat that comes home late at night.” -Marie Corelli


“I think men who have a pierced ear are better prepared for marriage. They’ve experienced pain and bought jewelry.” – Rita Rudner

Help Me 


Someone once asked me if I have been married before and upon hearing my reply commented that it must have been hard on me to still be single and unattached at this age. My jaw almost dropped. For a would-be-divorcee to tell me that was unexpected and unbecoming. What makes someone think that being married and divorced has better social standing than us singles?


Another married friend who after lamenting to me about her stale marriage advised me to find a husband while I still have the youthful looks that men desire in a woman. I felt like I am a soon-to-be-expired mechandise waiting for a buyer. How about auctioning myself off on eBay since online auction is now making a wave? Not a bad idea. I might receive attractive offshore biddings like the integrated resorts development project and make my family proud.


I also have a guy friend who is so depressed about his single status that he keeps wallowing in endless self-pity. It is as if he has been a laughing stock among his group of friends and he can’t take the mockery any longer. I asked him why he has to put such immense pressure on himself to get hitched and warned him about the consequences of a rush marriage but his revelation was rather shocking. He told me being a divorcee would still be far better than being a single because it means he has been wanted before but a single person is deemed “unwanted”, very much like a piece of rejected goods lying in the warehouse collecting dust. Thus, being a single is more depressing.


I could think of a thousand reasons to start a debate with him but I did not have the heart to argue with someone who apparently has driven himself crazy by his own silly thoughts. I let him go on this one.  


After chatting up with these few friends, I can’t help thinking social stigma is so deviously powerful and damaging to the mental well-being of us singles. Perhaps we all should get married tomorrow (never mind about the divorce later) before we commit mass suicide.

Female fans  Indian supporters  Queueing for autograph  Signing autograph Russell Peters

Russell Peters, the funny guy, came to town!

For days I was obviously elated that I would be finally seeing Russell Peters in person. Every thought of that funny man was enough to send me roll on the floor and laugh.

I wonder how his girlfriend copes. She must be laughing all the time on every date with him, and then for the next few days groaning in pain because she has laughed so hard that her tummy hurts. Ugh. Awful. I decided to strike Russell Peters’ name off the “to date” list.

Anyway I went ahead to meet Russell Peters at the SCO Hall to watch him make fun of the audiences and have a good laugh at the expense of the ‘victims’.

Russell’s shows were a complete sold-out. He has overwhelming support from the local indian community.  Apparently our indian friends are extremely proud of this funny guy.
