PASSION...
where the line between motion and emotion crosses each other;
when the rains blur the distinction between earth and sky.

Burning rubber, rapid rain
the field will soon go missing...

politicians - Tuesday, May 3, 2011 @ 11:22 PM
  • don't wow me with your dramatics,
    your speech,
    your statistics,
    your excuses;
    you want my loyalty, my vote of confidence?
    show me your commitment to promises made;
    your follow-up actions;
    your willingness to treasure relationships above the busyness;
    else we might as well be some flash-bang politicians
    blowing their trumpets
    only to echo their shallow

biology - @ 5:51 AM
Biology determines much of the way we live.
From the moment we were born, we know how to breathe and eat.
As we grow older, new instincts kick in.
We become territorial.
We learn to compete.
We seek shelter.
Most important of all, we reproduce.
Sometimes biology can turn on us though.
Biology sucks sometimes.

Biology says we are who we are from birth
that our DNA is sentenced to unchangeable.
Our DNA doesn't account for all of us.
We're human.
Life changes us.
We develop new traits,
become less territorial.
We learn from our mistakes.
We face our greatest fears.
For better or worse, we find ways
to become more than our biology.
The risk, of course, is that we can't change too much
to the point we don't recognise ourselves.
Finding our way back can be difficult.
There is no compass, no map.
We just have to close our eyes,
take a step,
and hope to God we'll get there.
Grey's Anatomy
Season 7, Episode 4

so dead - Monday, May 2, 2011 @ 12:26 PM


So Osama is dead, says Obama (making sure I don't get the names wrong);
& some of us will be so TOO
if we don't meet our marking deadlines
or mug for coming exams
or discern the speeches at the rallies wisely
or pause and enjoy this holiday

or we could ust ignore all else and dance to bootilicious Beyonce's "Survivor"

change #1 - @ 7:30 AM
Did I wake up so early in the morning just to review speeches made during the rallies which I cannot attend?

NO. You think I'm mad ah.

Did the PAP with the existing coalition (note co-drivers!) of MPs do and is still doing a good job steering our nation to its successes today?

YES. I civil servant la, must give some face to the higher powers ma.

Are they getting too arrogant? Or at least some indivs appear to be of late?

DUH.

Are tigers to be kept as pets like the that expressed by some MP's wife?

NO, and I'm glad WP's Pritam Singh had slained her fictitious hallucinatory myths and brought her down to the reality of change.

So what did i take away from my research so far?

Change is inevitable - the only constant, the only wind that blows from the east to the west (da fond chui? blow what?). Old guards make good wise advisors. Old guards who fail to heed to pleas of certain groups in society and only roar to keep those beneath the hierachy of things in place (trust me, I've met so many at work in the past), or worse still, choose to live in the high society of their dens (which had prob undergone annual makeovers with more ponds lined with gold trimmings, more than who's that NKF individual because their annual GDP-feeds collected from their minions are obscene enough to feed an entire Amazon??) and then discriminate others by re-peeing territorial boundaries, to that I will borrow Pritam's funny-line, "Eh! Bodah!"

While we have checks in place in the system, recent developments have shown that we need to reinforce them with more passionate individuals to redefine what QUALITY OF LIVING in Singapore for ALL SINGAPOREANS truly should be.

change - @ 5:08 AM


was listening to this on the drive home and it just struck me...

Waiting On The World To Change

me and all my friends
we're all misunderstood
they say we stand for nothing and
there's no way we ever could
now we see everything that's going wrong
with the world and those who lead it
we just feel like we don't have the means
to rise above and beat it

so we keep waiting
waiting on the world to change
we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

it's hard to beat the system
when we're standing at a distance
so we keep waiting
waiting on the world to change
now if we had the power
to bring our neighbors home from war
they would have never missed a Christmas
no more ribbons on their door
and when you trust your television
what you get is what you got
cause when they own the information, oh
they can bend it all they want

that's why we're waiting
waiting on the world to change
we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

it's not that we don't care,
we just know that the fight ain't fair
so we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

and we're still waiting
waiting on the world to change
we keep on waiting waiting on the world to change
one day our generation
is gonna rule the population
so we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

I WILL EFFECT MY CHANGE WITH MY VOTE!!!

You cannot change the game until you are on the field.
~ Jason Mraz
