Perfection….

Standard

I have decided that dating a really hot chick is not for me…. And its not because I can’t date one but because of my theory about hot women.

All hot women come in a package:

1. Fake looks: they are naturally good looking yet spend endless hours trying to look artificially hot. A hot girl is always accompanied by lots of make-up, short skirts or shorts and high heels.

2. Zero personality: Being hot gives you the advantage of getting what to want even without opening your mouth. Guys are simple creatures if you know which buttons to push…. showing a bit of skin and having a stunning face can make any guy do anything you want… anything…. Therefore, hot women never had to work their way to get something they want. Hence, majority of them lack character and personality.

3. Never skin deep: A women who spends hours on trying to look good on the outside always thinks that is what is most important even when it comes to selecting someone from the opposite gender. Hot women will date only: a) hot guys or b) rich guys or c) hot /rich guys.

Flying away

Standard

Sometimes life just seems so difficult… meaningless…. doing the same-old-same-old thing over and over again. We like to think what we are doing is interesting, fun or exciting and this is what we want to do. But how sure are we… are we just saying these words to make us feel better so we dn’t have to think on how boring and monotonous our lives are ?

The weekend was just soooo boring…. weekends have always been boring… even hanging out with my friends, partying late into the night or just chilling under the stars is just plain boring now…… Maybe, I am growing up or maybe I just need a change

The idealist fool

Standard

We are all idealist fool when it comes to life… This mentality has been embedded by our parents and friends … all those comforting thoughts: ‘you deserve the best’ or ‘why settle for anything less’. These statements have blinded most of us in this endless search.

I am a cynic…. fortunately one thing that life has thought me that every single person in this world is selfish. However, I was not always a cynic… once not so long ago I too was a idealist fool. I believed that my parents loved me unconditionally and would want nothing but extraordinary things for me. I believed that my friends can be trusted, confided in when all seems lost. I believed that she could be trusted more than myself, to depend on when everyone doesn’t see things ur way and to stand by you even when everyone (even myself) would have given up.

Fortunately (or unfortunately), it didnt take too long to release how wrong I was about people. All people are driven by pure self interest and no matter how ignorant or in denial you are about it doesn’t make the truth go away. Now, I have heard of people who say that not all the people in the world fall into this category and there are exceptions. However, I am yet to meet an exception and I given my prior experience with people I am not gonna try to either.

Like the Amercian Stand up Comedian George Carlin once said ‘Inside every cynical person, there is a disappointed idealist’. In case, maybe that’s just me.

Bleeding love

Standard

I know this song is quite old but I came through when I was wasting my time on youtube (instead of doing research for my mentor) and I loved it so much … Officially, I have heard this song over 50 times ….. found the lyrics on the net and I feel like Leona Lewis wrote this song just for me 🙂

“Bleeding Love”

Closed off from love
I didn’t need the pain
Once or twice was enough
And it was all in vain
Time starts to pass
Before you know it you’re frozen

But something happened
For the very first time with you
My heart melts into the ground
Found something true
And everyone’s looking round
Thinking I’m going crazy

But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

Trying hard not to hear
But they talk so loud
Their piercing sounds fill my ears
Try to fill me with doubt
Yet I know that the goal
Is to keep me from falling

But nothing’s greater than the risk that comes with your embrace
And in this world of loneliness
I see your face
Yet everyone around me
Thinks that I’m going crazy, maybe, maybe

But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

And it’s draining all of me
Oh they find it hard to believe
I’ll be wearing these scars
For everyone to see

I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love

Thanks Leona I love this song and it just made my day 🙂

The Craving

Standard

I have a craving… its not for chocolate or anything money can buy…. its something I haven’t had in a reaaallly long time (Well, it is actually about a month but still it feels like forever). The worst thing is that I know I can’t have it anymore… its gone… Yet I can remember as it was yesterday –

To close your eyes

To feel nothing but the moment eternal – just that and no more-

To feel a wild dissolving bliss

To feel nothing at the same time feel everything you ever desire

Without uttering a single word that moment speaks to my soul

To remind me to treasure every single memory

All the sorrows of life

All those tears we shed

All those heartaches

Every single fond memory

Incomparable to this single eternal moment

The feeling is like no other… an experience worth living… an experience worth dying for…. an experience worth waiting for….. I crave for it so badly… I have fallen to its temptation so many times. Now, I must resist this temptation….

Vanity

Standard

Right after work, one of girls at the firm took random photographs of us at work. The interns consist of 5 girls and moi, so I took most of the photographs because I felt awkward to be in a photograph surrounded by girls (yeah I know it sounds lame). However, she managed to take a shot of me when I was not looking and it came out… well… not bad. So, I posed for the next shot and when I saw the photo afterwards I just released how GOOD LOOKING i am.

Honestly, I know vanity is not a good thing for people to have but seriously have any of u guys seen me… no wonder women give me THE LOOK all the time… I thought it was cos I was brown or skinny or some other lame excuse…. But today I was enlightened … My friends should have told me about this before… seriously… I know I have a big ego and this would be adding fuel to the fire but hiding the truth from me is absolutely unforgivable…..

However, I am a down-to-earth guy and I know I could never be a professional model given my current physical shape. Hence, I have come up with a plan:

1. I will go to the gym everyday after work for the next….. as long as it takes to get the perfect body to go with this perfect face.

2. Take some sort of supplement cos I wanna start on my modeling career as soon as possible.

3. See a doctor….people who know me know how much I eat … there is definitely a malfunction in my body, which I have narrowed down to be caused either by a ‘worm’ or ‘tumor’ (Thanks to Wikia and House MD) so I need a doctor to find out which of the two options it is.

If all goes well…. I might just end up being the next super model… Already, I got the looks, height and the skeleton framework 🙂 …. all i need is to put some muscle on it… I can smell perfection around the corner….

‘Family Law’ Lawyers

Standard

I was down at the subordinate courts yesterday handling a case for one of my partners when I discovered that the majority of the lawyers in the Family court are women. Apparently, women do enjoy doing family law. However, I am trying to rationale why women would choose such a non-lucrative field of the law which

1. Forces you to handle clients who are emotional messed up – I have only just handled one case so far and even that the client started crying during court session and I had no freaking idea what to do (So i did what any guy would do…. tapped on her shoulder and said its ‘ok’). Then she leaned over and cried on my shoulder.

2. On top of the money being not as good as the other areas, sometimes you dn’t get paid. Example: The wife hires you to handle divorce proceedings and she does whatever it takes to win custody of her children and any items in the house, which has sentimental significance to her (we billed a client over 35 hours excluding court hours in trying to win her a bunch of plates, which was gift to her on her marriage). After all this is over, she might not get enough money from her husband to pay us and the firm would get the money only over several months or even years.

3. Fixing the never ending problem, if you are a commercial lawyer, you can always work towards creating a better precedent on commercial transactions. The same applies for criminal law as well. However, family law is only cases where things have just gone really really wrong, the parents are fighting for their children or just fighting the end their marriage. This never ends and you know there is nothing we as lawyers can do about it. It is something we can’t fix and that trouble as a lawyer.

Yet, women lawyers still remain in this field. I think there is a reasonable explanation for this.

1. Given that Singapore has close to a 50% divorce rate, most women know their marriage is gonna end up in a divorce. Therefore, they believe in the concept of karma where if they help out other women going through a divorce maybe they themselves will not have to go through that horrible and dreadful experience.

2. Women fallacious delusion that they can fix everything. Like I said before, family lawyers come in when all has failed, there is no going back and all the lawyers can do is to finish these proceedings as quickly as possible.

Whatever their reasons to enter this area of the law, all I have to say is that a few years being a family law would just teach you how the little things that we take for granted after we get married can snowball into something which is gonna make us HATE this treasured institution of marriage.
