"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”"

On feminism:

Female friend: uhh...ask them to go to other countries where women are truly oppressed to go rant and rave lah

Gay friend: [feminists]'re all screwed in the head, rather than their CB

if you ignore the annoyance it causes it's really about trying not to give cliches their due
but they just don't have the grace to stop being annoying

it's really a matter of graciousness, rather than a right-or-wrong thing

Someone: most of them are just ugly hypocrites

look at andrea dworkin

can anyone really put their hand on their heart and say that they think dworkin would be such a hardcore feminist if she looked like paris hilton?

Someone else: Meh the problem with most modern feminist is that they strive for empowerment instead of equality

equality reaches a balance which must then be maintained
empowerment merely seeks more power

Until they themselves yearn to become the oppressors, demanding it in the name of equality

Someone: feminist... what kind?

the equality kind?
or the bra-burning RGS girl kind?

MFS: the weirdest class i've taken in my life
combining law, public policy, philosophy,
economic analysis and some history all into one

its called "Environemntal PolicY'
the professor has a Ph.D in Economics from MIT
fucking scary

he specializes in Ecological Economics
and Environmental Economics

basically the whole class has taught me that everything I learnt in the last few semesters is wrong wrong wrong

and i'm in this other econ class with regards to asymetric infomation in economics
and basically its telling me everything i've learnt so far is also wrong

Me: haha naturally

MFS: the other professor has the Ph.D in Economics from harvard... and he says

"everything in your textbook is BS"
"your textbook has not been revised in 150 years, frankly its all BS"

it was hilarious

Me: you didn't know meh

no it has been revised
to add maths

MFS: mathematics

the new era in political science
with be the formalization of it using mathematics

that's the so called very hot area now
using mathematics to predict politics

you know
as much as i'd like to say it isn't
everyday i seem to get compellingly more disillusioned with
the whole foundation of economic theory

my friend's dad teaches econ at NTU
and he proclaimed to me like in 2001
that everything we are learning in econ is bullshit

the folk in SMU are having a damn good time man!
just party party party only

Me: haha they claim not

MFS: all their fb pictures is taken at parties

i'm adding all the jokers
i knew from singapore onto facebook now
and pretty much all the I LUV SMOO kids
are zouk's biggest bottom line contributers

...

in my civil rights class - i learnt that the first migrants to america in the 1860s.. these chinese would often marry black women

and they'd also end up being doubly discriminated against

pretty interesting

Me: oh good
no one likes chinese men
no one likes black women

tada

...

MFS: american girls are more forgiving

i've had more luck with american girls
thn singaporean girls who are not even half as hot

singaporean girls want money
security
a good life
but give little in return


Someone: *sends me the Nodame Cantabile version of the first movement of Beethoven's 7th*
a friend who has piano grade 8 claimed not to have heard e song b4

Me: singaporeans are very... task oriented
they only do what they need to do
like they only read textbooks

Someone: more of result oriented

i guess
tt's y life is a bore here

i wondered how on earth my friend managed to get piano grade 8

Me: same way how people can get A1 in AO level chinese
but be unable to speak it


MFTTW: extremely intelligent men go completely irrational when faced with a target of choice.

especiaelly the testosterone-bearing kinds

see if nothing else at least women you can COUNT on them to be irrational
for men... geez, only when the penis comes into play
and how do you know WHEN that is

hahahahahahahaha


Someone: it sorta reminds me of this christian junior of mine... we went to some soka concert... she was quite disturbed with all the prayer/chanting prior to beginning of the concert

Me: wow
so now she knows what it feels like on the other side of the fence
