confused fish


I’ve been feeling kinda confused today. I was taking a shower in the ubiquitous hotel toilet and I suddenly couldn’t remember where I was.
I travel a fair amount, and when I’m sleepy, I tend to be very  blur.
I was like… am I in Philippines? (which I’ve never been to) Indonesia? Malaysia???  -pause to think- oh I’m in Thailand.
Given the price of air tickets, and the mobility of the population now, everywhere feels like everywhere. Architecture only varies so much.
Had a ton of food today, I’m gonna return to Singapore on Wednesday a certified baby elephant. But food here is so goot. (just like frootdealer’s froot)

How do you make someone confess. This is something I have been pondering over the course of the day.
Sometimes, a person can be so deluded, can have convinced him/herself so totally, that they see their lies as the truth.
I’d like to bash a few people in the face with lists and paragraphs detailing why they’re wrong, but I know I’ll just see defiance and that closed off expression, with shutters across their eyes.
I’m good at giving my mum advice, but like her, I’m bad at taking my own/good advice.
Sometimes, you just have to let people make their own mistakes. Cos, it’s their life. I know that it’s only possible if you don’t give a damn about the person, or if you don’t give a damn about the subject matter.
But it isn’t right to feel guilty for not being able to steer someone off the wrong track.
