What’s the diff?

You go Geylang find prostitute.
Pay a small sum of money.
Bring her to hotel.
Have sex with her for a few hours.

————-
You go Vietnam Brides Matchmaker find a “wife”.
Pay $10,000.
Bring her home.
Have sex with her till the day you die or she die.

What is the difference?
I can’t see much diff. These vietnam brides matchmakers are getting out of hand. In the past, the guy need to travel to Vietnam, choose the gal, spend 1 day to get to know her and perform the wedding ritual before bringing her home. Now the matchmakers are bringing the vietnam gals to singapore, let them sit in the office and wait for guys to come select them. I don’t know, the whole thing just cheapen the woman and make it look like a season ticket prostitute.

Something need to be done to stop this.

Tell me what’s wrong with society

The Australian government is considering calls from church leaders and some government lawmakers to hold one minute’s silence for Nguyen Tuong Van who will be hung on Friday.

But isn’t he a criminal? Why is he made into a national hero?
This reminds me of the song by Simple Plan call Crazy.

Is everybody going crazy?
Is anybody gonna save me?
Can anybody tell me what’s going on?
Tell me what’s going on?
If you open your eyes
You’ll see that something, something is wrong

Something is seriously wrong here.

My 2 1/2 year and 10 cycle is worth $5000

I always believe that it is the duty of every male Singaporean to enter National Service and serve in the Army for 2 1/2 years (recently reduced to 2 years). After all, this is our land. If we don’t defend it, who will?

And after the 2 1/2 years of full time national service, we will get another 10 cycle of reservist (used to be 13 cycle), where we put down our work and return to army camp and refresh our combat skills. Every male singapore citizen is ready to pick up a M16 or SAR21 and defend singapore whenever there is a need.

But it sadden me to see people faking illness to escape army. I simply look down on these people. Yes, there are some people who cannot serve the army due to some medical conditions, it is still ok. At least they do their part for the country by doing some admin work in the army. But there are some who are physically fit, yet fake medical condition to escape army. These people, to me, are cowards. I’ve always hated these people.

But, recently, I got to read about 1 guy who is much worst than chao keng people. His name is Melvyn Tan. He was a singaporean who went to UK to learn music and refuse to return to serve the army. He stayed in UK for 28 years, playing piano and making a name for himself.

And now, he is coming back to play piano and take care of his aged whom he deserted 28 years ago. He was fined $5000 for defaulting his national service. No jail no nothing. This is just crap.

How many people were thrown into Detention Barrack for AWOL? Yet this guy got away with a $5000 fine. To add to the insult, National Arts Council invited him to be a jury member of a piano competition. And he is going to perform in esplanade. Its as if a hero welcome for a defaulter.

Yes, he is good at piano. So? Big FU*K? He escape from national service. Why should we welcome him back like a hero? Who is he to deserve such welcome? I don’t care if he can play piano with his dick or whatsoever. He AWOL, he should be thrown into jail or made to serve army. And not get away with a $5000 fine. My 2 1/2 yr of blood and sweat is just worth $5k? What about loyalty? Is he loyal to singapore? Or will he be on the 1st flight out of singapore should war break out?

This is our land. Not yours. Crawl back to the country where you have been hidding for the past 28 years. You are not welcome in our land. Don’t call yourself a singaporean, you are a disgrace to all those who served the army before.

I don’t serve my national service to protect this coward.

Am I wrong?

Feeling sick for the whole week. Not those need to see doctor type of sick. I’m sick of some stuff happening recently.

For the whole week, I’ve been accused of starting a quarrel, being over-sensitive, busybody, harrassing somebody, causing a pregnant woman to have contraction, overly-concern and creating unnecessary misunderstanding.

What I merely did was to stand up and defend my friend who was being attacked by words in forums. She claims that she was just replying in context, and not targetting at anyone. But anyone who know what happen behind knew that her fingers are pointing at my friend.

I’m sick and tired of all these. Now I got 2 less friends. The attacker and her husband. And a whole long list of things that I didn’t do.

Which makes me wonder. Am I wrong to step out and defend a friend?

I saw an angel cried last night

I saw an angel cried last night. She was feeling down. Someone must have hurt her too much.

She told me she was in a bad mood the moment we met. I knew something is wrong. We had dinner, we chatted. Everything seems ok. But shortly after dinner, she just broke into tears. I guess it was too much for her to bear.

I saw an angel cried last night. And I almost wanted to cry too. Why would someone want to hurt an angel so much that makes her cry? How could someone bear to hurt her?

I saw an angel cried last night. And I stood there feeling hopeless. I don’t know what I can do to comfort her. I don’t know what I could do to cease her tears. I wanted to hug her while she cried, to lend her a shoulder to dry her tears. But I didn’t as I know it would only add more tears to her eyes.

Instead, I cracked a lame joke.

“I say break up means break up. Stop crying. Crying won’t bring me back to you. It’s over between you and me”

And she laughed. The sight of an angel laughing, with tears of sorrow still in her eyes, is the most beautiful thing on earth.

I wish I was the person who made her cried last night. At least I can stop what I’m doing so that she won’t cry anymore.

It really hurts to see an angel cry. Why would someone make an angel cry? I rather the person hurt me instead.

I saw an angel cried last night. I wish she will never cry again. But if she ever cried again, I wish I’ll be right by her side.
