Quarter 2 !

People, buck up !

We are already entering quarter 2 of 2008 !

So, how many of you kept up to your new years resolution ?

I am pretty sure most single guys/girls would have this in their top 10 list...


And for those who are slightly "horizontally challenged" (like me ! )

It would be...


But anyway, we are passing through another year of our life. When i was in uni, i never realize how fast time flies. It never really mattered as everything was about going to class and back, going for mamak sessions, hang out at malls and just bumming around the whole day !

I am going to reach my 1 year anniversary of working next month ( officially 28th of May ) and i am already feeling the pressure of working. When Uncle Ben said it to Peter Parker , it sounded like a really cool phrase but when you are actually going through it, it sucks ! Now that i am having more to handle, the pressure mounts up like a pile of unwashed clothes. It just keeps coming. Although i like working under pressure and i like the challenge, I hope i will not be in this position for a long time. I want to do something different.

Most of us would work to pay the mortgages, just like how Katie Holmes would say it to Aaron Eckhart in the movie " Thank You for Smoking". Thats definitely the case for me and i guess for most people. There would be a bunch who would work because its their passion. But most just do it for the money.

I wouldn't say i dont enjoy my job. The environment is good, the people are fun and the road i take to work is not jam ! But there is something in me that says that there is something else i should be doing....

I shall believe

Come to me now
And lay your hands over me
Even if it's a lie
Say it will be alright
And I shall believe

I'm broken in two
And I know you're on to me
That I only come home
When I'm so all alone
But I do believe

That not everything is gonna be the way
You think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try to make it right
It all comes down on me
Please say honestly you won't give up on me
And I shall believe
And I shall believe

Open the door
And show me your face tonight
I know it's true
No one heals me like you
And you hold the key

Never again
would I turn away from you
I'm so heavy tonight
But your love is alright
And I do believe

That not everything is gonna be the way
You think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try to make it right
It all comes down on me
Please say honestly
You won't give up on me
And I shall believe
I shall believe

Couples of months back i joined this competition and won a Sheryl Crow CD. It ended up collecting dust in my car. Then suddenly on Thursday, i just felt listening to her and i took the CD out and fitted it into the CD player. Viola, next thing you know, one of my old favorite song came back to me. . I guess this song is basically about clinging onto someone you love so much and hoping that the person don't give up on you. Aaahhhh, isn't love wonderful ! hahahaha

If you read back my back few post, I have been going through a pretty rough time. Thank you to all those people who did ask about my well being. I really appreciate your concern. Thank you for being such great friends.

1 of my colleague down at my work place, pulled me to the coffee corner and started chatting with me about relationship. She asked me " Duncan, hows your search going !"
I started to laugh and tell her about my condition. If you didn't know, i choose to diverge into a different road *P/S : MY DIFFERENT ROAD DOESN'T MEAN GOING DOWN THE QUEER MAN ROAD! "

I am currently enjoying being single. I would not have to worry about a person whinnying to you why you never spend time with her, your bank account would definitely be able to sustain and never reach the Rm10.00 minimum , you can enjoy endless outing with friends without feeling guilty and the list would go on !

However, i do agree that at certain point of your life when your friends are all busy or you have nothing on, the feeling of loneliness do come creeping in. I do go through that too once in a while. Hahaha !

I also realize that if you have been single/alone for quite sometime, you can be quite selfish and self centered where you would put yourself at a higher priority than others. Why can't some people be more caring about those who are around them and especially those who means something to you. I hope i don't turn out to be like that.

Back to the story , then my colleague asked " You want to stay single now eh, but then what if you suddenly fall for someone ? "

When she asked me that question, I was stunned for a minute. I never really thought about that before. What if i did ?

If i could choose...

I would date Ellen Page

This 21 year old actress has produced one of the most brilliant acting i have ever seen in a long time. Her performance in "Hard Candy" and "Juno" was awesome ! If you haven't watch it yet, you are definitely missing hell of a good movie !

Gone baby gone

This is definately 1 of the few best movies i have seen in a while. Directed by Ben Affleck and starring his brother Casey Affleck, it was done pretty well for a first time director.

My fav part from the movie :

Patrick Kenzie: Cheese, if you ever disrespect her again like that, I'm gonna pull your fuckin' card, okay? So you're saying you didn't do it, fine. We'll take your money, and we'll be on our way. When it turns out you're lying, I'm gonna spend every nickel of that money to fuck you up. I'm gonna bribe cops to go after you, I'm gonna pay guys to go after your weak fuckin' crew, and I'm gonna tell all the guys I know that you're a C.I. and a rat, and I know a lot of people. And after that, you're gonna wish you listened to me, 'cause your shitty pool hall crime syndicate headquarters is gonna get raided, and your doped-up bitches are gonna get sent back to Laos, and this fuckin' retard right here is gonna be testifying against you for a reduced sentence, while you're gettin' cornholed in your cell by a gang of crackers. 'Cause from what I've heard, the guys that get sent up Concord for killing kids, life's a motherfucker.

And if you are planning to catch a more light hearted movie, you might wanna consider watching "Be Kind Rewind"

Jerry is a junkyard worker who attempts to sabotage a power plant he suspects of causing his headaches. But he inadvertently causes his brain to become magnetized, leading to the unintentional destruction of all the movies in his friend's store. In order to keep the store's one loyal customer, an elderly lady with a tenuous grasp on reality, the pair re-create a long line of films including The Lion King, Rush Hour, Ghostbusters, When We Were Kings, Driving Miss Daisy, and Robocop, putting themselves and their townspeople into it. They become the biggest stars in their neighborhood. - source imdb.com

Work week 14 and work week 15 has so far been the worst for 2008. I have been thrown crap at the whole week. Some comes in the form of work, which i don't mind but the worst are the craps that are thrown to you that is meant to break you emotionally. I can handle if i have to work for long hours or even work stress. What could really break me is those emotional news and the feeling uncertainty of so many things in life. This kind of news or events are things you can never solve or know what to do next. Its like waking up one day and your dad says " Your cat is dying ". The feeling of helpless-ness creeps inside your body and tends to take over you, physically and mentally. You will start feeling fatigued and the loss of mood to work the rest of the day.

Although i don't really know what my purpose in life is yet, but the big Guy above likes challenging me not physically, but mentally and emotionally. I won't back down. That i can assure you !

I guess right now i have to dust myself up and continue pushing on. Thats the only thing rational enough to be done now. . . . .
