[ 13092004 12.53am | ughz. ]

pet peeve 1 : it super pisses me off when people who take the elevator up take the elevator going down because there are tons of ppl who are waiting to go up. for example, in cineleisure. now that the foodcourt is open, the lift serving all floors goes down to the basement. as you all should know, level 1, groundfloor, is always mama crowded. hence, the toots just chiong into a lift thats goes down so that when it goes back up to lvl 1 from basement, no one can get on anymore. that pisses me off immensely. especially since i get food from the foodcourt and have to go back up to my shop on level 3 asap. the lift comes down chock full of ppl who arent getting out. RAWR.

pet peeve 2 : why is singapore so concerned with race, religion and watnots when wanting to apply for jobs, or actually, almost anything else? its such futile categorization. if singapore prides herself to be a multiracial, multireligious kinda community, why do they have to make one fill out a lengthy form on who they are, when they cant even explain why they are who they are? isnt it more applicable to ask what languages one speaks etc. i mean, would you REALLY not hire someone because he/she is a certain skin colour or has certain religious beliefs? i'm talking about a normal run of the mill job, not one with religious or racial overtones... like well... uh... being a pastor.

pet peeve 3 : i'm sick of people who dont signal and think they own the whole road, who have big cars and think they can straddle 4 lanes. RAWR. to quote my dad " why buy an expensive car with a signal, and then dont use it?"
another of my favourites " signalling is free, its doesnt hurt to use it freely. (but not abusively.)"


anyway, ran into quite a few people over the weekend, sue and her bunch being some of them. hehheh... wish i marshalled for wcg, even though it was (i heard) a pretty big flop, at least they got tons of freebies. =p...

angel's over from indonesia! and i didnt find out til today. roar. and shes been here since thursday. double roar. oh well, gonna try to send her off tml, but i have lect, and a match in the evening. so... gotta sleep on it.
todae was pretty fun, one of the rare sundays where my mum lets me out. had lunch (i watched them have lunch rather, cos my family fasts on sundays til dinner) with team bandung, it was nice to gather again... and watch nick be a kok. haha...

nick:"you know ah, you cant break an egg by squeezing it"
(gives precious, expensive egg that everyone was drooling over at the prospect of eating it... a really hard squeeze)
the rest of us (7 in all):"there goes an egg...and we only have 2..."

an amusing outing i must say.

[ 01092004 1.23am | angry ]

in case you were wondering about the last post (which i deleted) that was blank, i actually typed a long long thing about housing conditions. but somehow i clicked this and that and it disappeared, leaving me with an empty post. anyway, i shall write about it when inspiration hits me again. in the meantime, i'm really angry with the kok up deleting thing.


for now, let me rant about the SAF. (yes joel and alwyn, i'm finally seeing things that i REALLY dont like about it)
there was a function today, some dunno wat thing at a hotel. and there was TOPLESS dancing. (ok... i'm wondering how many people are gonna surf to my site cos of those 2 words. ie. "topless dancing")
thats really distasteful. topless, meaning, really all totally topless.
what are the people up there trying to do? promote porn and geylang? our cohabitation rate, premarital sex rate are all going up. think about purity. to be untainted. think about this from both angles, the boys and the performing females.
call me a frog in the well, call me a traditionalist, but i believe in the purity and sanctity of marriage, only within which you can expose yourself, and be exposed to your partner. i believe in this, and i will not budge from it.
such ludicrous "functions", no matter how rampant, and how much of a "normal occurrence" it becomes, will ever make me change my mind on this matter. the day things like this dont affect me is the day i am no more myself and have sunken into the pit where all the rest of these people are. apathetic fools.
to be so unexcited that sanctity of sex has to be invaded, used as a tool.
we are indeed in the last days of this sinful world. i am so angry i want to rush about the house breaking down the walls.
i'm furious.
