Good intentions

People have to be careful when they try to help someone. Even though they believe that they are giving someone support and trying to be their friend, sometimes it is better to leave them alone. Let the family and doctors deal with the problem.

Not everyone can be fixed when they are broken. Leave things to the professionals. One may unintentionally do more harm than good. Don't do anything that you really are not qualified to do.

People who can't dress

I have to say that despite all of the shopping and fashionistas around, I have seen tons of really bad dressers. I think it's because people only buy what they like or is trendy and not what looks good on them. They should know their bodies and what looks good on them.

I feel like going up to some people and telling them, "That doesn't suit you at all. Try blah blah blah instead!"

Also, I hate those flip flops. I don't care if they are comfortable or what, they don't look good. Unless you are going to the beach, don't wear them. They don't look good!

Also, if you aren't in shape, then you should avoid certain items of clothing like tight t-shirts or short skirts.

Would like to give some of my friends wardrobe makeovers! Some of my male friends wear plaid shirts all the time which look awful. Hope they don't read this....actually, maybe they should.

Travel Agents

I hate dealing with booking flights and travel agents. It's so confusing. Maybe there's a communication gap. Just found out that I am waitlisted for a return flight that I thought was confirmed. But I am confirmed for return flight on Jan. 2. Oh well, means I have to stay longer over there. Better warn my friend because I am staying with her. Opps....hope she doesn't mind.

Jap Guys

Have been showing some Japanese friends who are visiting Singapore around. They are from Tokyo. A few observations or comparisons with local men here.

They are more polite. (always saying thank you or sorry etc)
They are better groomed. (they are more pulled together and tidier - no run down clothes or slippers)
They are less emotional. (they don't just blurt things out without thinking first)

We are off to Sentosa today. Apparently, one of the things on their Must Do list is see the Merlion. I kept tellng them it's a tacky and embarassing Singaporean icon. Oh well....

Christmas lights

The Christmas decorations have been up on Orchard Rd since October! Let the excessive spending begin. I heard Christmas music everywhere the other day. So early!

Glad my family is not big on buying gifts.

Men are weird. Especially the ones in their twenties though my friend said it doesn't matter. They just aren't very mature or sophisticated. If you like someone,they should make an effort. Otherwise, don't bother.

They also give up too easily. They don't know how to "chase" or "court" someone. My friends said that it's because they start dating someone right away. There is no real courting or romancing someone or anything exciting like that. How boring!

A colleague told me to never get married. It was kind of funny advice because she just got married for the second time like three months ago. She was like twenty when she got married the first time. Too young.

She's in her early fifies now. Actually, she is pretty happy. They were together for like 7 years before they got married. It was easier for them to work here together if they got hitched.

She said I should never get married. It may be good advice.
