So it appears that Girls Out Loud may have some redeeming qualities within it. I was converted to that stance after a youtube clip which was bitchy and witty enough to be rather entertaining. I love verbal sparring, no matter what package it comes in. It was an episode about Xiaxue’s Cyber Enemies, with the Eyebrow Plucking Man (usually located in orchard) thrown in for good measure.

 Singapore wins against Thailand! And Malaysia! Tis not simply sports, it’s a political match! Heh, and we win both!

 It is the last semester of the last year in NUS Bukit Timah Campus. Law students are perking up, taking fun seriously, making a conscious effort to have fun, if you will. It’s as if we know time is running out, for leisure or for life as it is used to be. You win some, you lose some. The winning part is the money earned, the losing part is the passing of time. Well, there is an opportunity cost to everything I suppose. In the world according to Garp, we are all terminal cases.

Just finished that book– the world according to Garp by John Irving. I preferred his other novel – A Prayer for Owen Meany. He deals with more themes in the latter, particularly that of religious angst. But Garp’s world ain’t too bad too. A little sorrowful though. There is an epilogue where he tells you exactly how all of the characters live out their lives. At the end of it, one feels like one has aged significantly and seen many lives.

The Painted Veil is good too. Finally caught that movie starring Edward Norton. I’ve loved him ever since Fight Club. It’s his intense eyes and that slightly sad air about the characters he play. He romanticises sorrow. Lol. Oh and it wasn’t a happy ending, contrary to what I told Izzy and Addy. Nonetheless, I like the tension played out between the characters. It’s interesting to see the the main characters who are caucasians, in this setting / sea of Chinese people.

Final thought:

It is not wealth one asks for, but just enough to preserve one’s dignity, to work unhampered, to be generous, frank and independent. (Somerset W. Maugham)
