"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

"Like so many Americans, she was trying to construct a life that made sense from things she found in gift shops." - Kurt Vonnegut

Someone: Where did you go for exchange?

Me: I went to the land of Pot, Hookers and Euthanasia.

Someone: Canada?


Someone else: the parallels between your relationship to truth and other people's to god are fascinating


Someone: i treat all boys the same way =p
it's the girls that i'm always more wary about

i interact very well with guys, in sense i'm more comfortable talking with them

well on one hands girls are bitchy, on another they're unpredictable, have fragile egos

it's difficult talking frankly to them
for example, i wouldn't talk to them the way i do to you

be cordial
everything has a standard answer
am i fat? no
does he like me? of course
what if he doesn't? oh it'll come

Me: what will come?

Someone: love. or whatever she's expecting
'it' is a good word for the ambiguity


Someone else: ad hominem is Singaporeans' defence of choice, because they've never learnt to debate from young
so when losing, just say "AIYAH YOU SUCK LAH"


Someone: hey, do girls usually discuss whether or not another girl is pretty?

because i was forced to overhear an appalling bit of conversation in the bathroom today, and i'm wondering if it'snormal

girl 1: do you know "So-and-so"? She is so pretty!
girl 2: yeah! she really is damn pretty, and you know who else is really pretty? "So and so 2"!
girl1: yeah!! I can't believe it! You know, the other day I saw the two of them walking in the forum together! She's a lot prettier than "some other person"

there was more, but i was reeling and didn't register anymore.
it's abysmally ridiculous.

Me: of course.
well better than bitching about another girl right

Someone: bitching is more normal though
less worrisome.

i don't know! just less... bizarre!
bitching i can understand, compliments too, but about... looks?! O_O

if the other parties are involved, it makes sense. to talk about looks
but to talk about looks at all when the people concerned are not within earshot is just damn weird!

someone: there is this shop in cambridge which is run by devout muslims. it sells 'asian and continental foods'

they do not stock anything with pork or alcohol. but despite that i walk up the hill to go to this shop once in a while

becoz they sell really high quality food. like crusty bread. wide selection of breadsticks. wide selection of spices. wide selection of italian antipasti and pasta sauce which u cannot get anywhere else

which is a v nice counterpoint to this malaysia halal-low quality shit.

the pointbeing that in sgp. when they go halal the quality goes down
but it doesnt hv to be so. here, this halal shop represents high quality
u just work with foods that are naturally halal
