Dons was telling us sometimes it is difficult tell whether his colleague is borrowing his iphone cable. The truth is that iphone cable only comes in one color and it is difficult to identify which is your cable unless you made a special marking. Back in primary school, I remembered many of my classmates having the same stationeries as me. Whenever I lost one of the stationeries, I would become a bit suspicious that my classmates took mine. To be honest, I did take my classmates’ stationeries to replace my missing items. These guys would come to me and say ,” Hey you took my stuff !” I would ask them why they would think the item I was using belong to them. They would then describe things like, “You know the pencil you are holding has a crack at that end” or “I always bite the tip of my pen so there is a teeth mark there”. Upon realizing that I cannot argue my case, I would apologize and tell that it is my fault and return them their items.

This plump girl in front wears a lululemon. I remembered there was an article describing the ladies complain that the yoga pants were so thin that they had holes in the pants after washing. I am in the " TRX suspension" class and everytime she stretches her leg backward with her butt in front of me, the pants stretch so thin that I can even see she is a wearing white cotton panty with some cute motif on it. Unfortunately or should I say fortunately, I am unable to see what the motifs are really about.

I wonder why she wears cotton panty cos it is going to soak up all her sweat.

What is their relationship ? You see the woman pushing the baby stroller and the baby inside. You can tell she is the mother. You see the boy hugging the girl and kiss her gently and you can tell they are a couple. On the way home, I saw a very young pretty girl dressed with make-up and in short shorts walking side by with a skinny rather simple looking middle aged man wearing Bermudas. I wonder how they are related. I remembered entering the restaurant with Tan and Tian. Sitting near us, was a young boy, say early 20s and a 40 over woman. They were having cakes. I thought they might be mother and son but Tan and Tian thought otherwise. On another occasion, as Melvin's car was turning round the corner, we saw a middle aged man with a pretty woman in nice dress. They were trying to cross the road outside the KTV pub. Alex exclaimed "Wow the escort is so pretty". So how did he tell the woman is an escort ?

When we were in primary school, my sis's classmate once exclaimed, "Your grandfather is here to pick you". That wasnt our grandfather. My dad just has lots of white hair, that is all.

About Parallel Universe and Alternate Realms. I always remember the last scene in Bruce Willis' "Sixth Sense" in which he realized that he has been dead and living in an alternate reality. I, too sometimes worry that I might have died without knowing. Or something like, I entered a separate reality without realizing it. There was once when I boarded an empty train during the peak hour and question myself whether I have entered to a parallel universe. Or is it there is something about the train that is why it is empty, which I do not know.

Going back to self help books. Self help books always tells people to change their perception and themselves rather their reality. I am a firm believer that the change in oneself can open a new universe. Well, one way to find out is to try dropping by the Chanel store in your most sloppy outfit on one day and wearing a nicer outfit on the other, the staffs will probably treat you differently. Of course, only try this when the store when there are less customers. The staffs probably don't care how well you dress on the day when the store is flooded with brand hungry customers from mainland China.

I remembered my primary school teachers always warned us not to end our composition, " I woke up and found that it was just a dream".

That aside, Transformers 4 has one of the worse story plot. The new characters appear from nowhere with no character development and background of the characters. From nowhere, Lock-hide appeared and disappeared into hyperspace and then returned to Hongkong to challenge the Autobot. I dont even know what is Lock-hide's purpose in life. Seeking revenge on Optimus Prime? Why? Grimlock and his dinosaur team mates just appeared from nowhere but we heard nothing from them in the beginning of the film. It was like as if the director just decided to add them at the end of the movie.The movie was packed with great action and computer graphics but it got no thrill and excitement. My colleague, Marcus, gave a loud yawn during one of the movie's scene. I was a bit shy when that happened.

I once attended a Chinese Composition writing class. The teacher taught us how to write interesting composition. One lesson was about writing autobiography. Autobiography is like imagining you are a pen, a bag or a fish. According to the teacher, one mistake, most students make is failing to put themselves in the position of the character they are writing about. We were asked to write about being a fish trapped in the toilet bowl. If you are the fish trapped in the toilet bowl, your point of view should be from the toilet bowl, so what you should know is just from what you can hear, smell or feel from the toilet bowl. Many students made the mistake of writing about things that happened in the living room or kitchen which the fish in the toilet bowl has no way to find out.

We were talking about writing a birthday card for our 46 years old manager. I asked my colleague,"Have you thought about where you will be at age of 46 years old. He replied, "I dont know". Very often, one of the questions which pop up in interview books goes something like this "What would you want to achieve in 5 years time ?" I asked Yean, my law tutor in NUS how he would answer this question and he replied, " I would answer like ,' Time is changing, so I will not know exactly what I will be doing in 5 years time'".

I read on one those websites that interviewers from companies are now trying to post out-of- the box questions to how see the interviewee would respond to uncertainty. An interview, sure reminds of English oral test. My cousin used to make me memorize answers to potential questions by hard so that I vomit out a whole of information without stammering or hesitating. He would make me repeat the answers so many times that it is almost printed into my memory.

I think there was a book with a title that goes like "How to negotiate like a child ?". After observing how my sister handles her children, I realized that one way to make a child do your wishes is to offer something in exchange. There are a million things to motivate a child to your request. This may not be something so good as your child make things difficult for you so that you can offer him his wish.

I remember that my parents would not hear my demands at all. There was no room for negotiation cos my parents saw that I was not in a position to negotiate with them. Instead of incentives, they offered me disincentives for not following their wishes. If I throw a tantrum, I would be dragged to the toilet and beaten badly. If you see a kid screaming while being dragged to the toilet, that would be me.

Work your mails
kenties
I hate to receive work mails on Friday evening. I have received work mails of good and bad news, as well as request for more work to be done on Friday evenings, just few hours before knocking off. My European colleague likes to request for assistance on Friday evening, this is probably of the 12 hours difference. Murata told me that he saves his mail as drafts over the weekends and presses the "send" button on Monday. When he was narrating this to me, I imagine a army general pressing the "Launch" button multiple times, to throw the missiles over to the other side.

I often go to the gym for classes. The thing I am impressed about many of the instructors are able to continue to give concise instructions while doing what everyone else is doing. For cardio workouts, when many of the participants are already out of breath, the instructor still cheers everyone on.
