他要結婚了,我該去嗎?

他要結婚了。女孩不是第一個知道的。好險,也不是最後一個。
她才不想知道呢!
男孩沒有訊息告知、沒有來電。只是簡單透過一則臉書貼文靜靜地、殘忍地把幸福散播出去。 

『我該去嗎?』『不該去嗎?』『穿什麼好呢?』女孩站在鏡子面前磨蹭了一下…思考著穿
得失不失禮、好看與否,都不重要了吧!

愣了兩秒,潸然淚下…想起那個初識他的日子…

壞男人活的是那分真情實意

或許,這篇文章對那些自詡為「好男人」的人不是那麼公平,但千古名言「男人不壞,女人不愛」始終在男女交流圈中代代相傳,在我們總被社會規範要求做一個溫良恭儉讓五德具備的男人,同時,也眼睜睜看著心儀的女孩一次又一次的被那些擺明跟她玩玩的「壞男人」弄得傷神。問題出在哪?壞男人真的比較神?

5 Things You Need to Discuss Before Moving in Together

It is spring, the flowers are blooming and you feel a giddy sense of exhilaration. Being in love has changed your life. You are now happy, optimistic and the world can do no wrong. You are raring to go and where better to go than to a place where both of you can stare lovingly into each other’s eyes all 24 hours of each day? A Home. All together now, aww. Excuse me while I indulge my gag reflex and remind you that those rose-coloured lenses will do you no good when you’re screaming at each other at 3am in the morning. Before you jump into the deep end of the pool, here are 5 things you need to discuss for that next step in your blossoming relationship.

  1. How long does it take you to get ready to go out?

From time immemorial, men and women have fought over the toilet. Learn from your ancestors. Most women take too long. This is a scientific fact. If you are dating the rare female who doesn’t, good for you. If it takes you two hours just to set your toupee straight, you’d better be moving into a house with 2 toilets.

  1. How much alone time do you need?

Everyone needs alone time. Sometimes it’s for you, sometimes it’s for everyone else. Tell each other about this alone time. Don’t wait till you’re grouchy, eating all the ice cream in the freezer and flinching when she steps into the house. If you have to hide in the toilet fixing your toupee for 2 hours to get alone time, that does not count.

  1. What do you need when you’re sick / tired / stressed out?

There is a misconception that all women love to nurture sick people with chicken soup and tender loving care. Let me repeat – this is a misconception. Some women just want to be far, far away from all the germs you’re emitting. If you’re such a man in love with such a woman, it might be wiser to talk about a contingency plan. She could send you to a nice hotel or even your mother’s house. Whatever you need, baby.

  1. How clean do you need your space to be?

Some people shower three times a day when they’re busy. These people usually have superpowers that allow them to detect dust you cannot see and sense dirty dishes the moment the last morsel of food leaves the plate. Others are more in tune with nature. They clean when the dishes in the sink begin to block their view of the moon outside the window. Somewhere in between these two groups is where most people lie. An open discussion about germs and bacteria has never hurt a relationship.

  1. How will you divide household responsibilities?

What? There’s something other than cleaning?! I know right? Bet you’re really starting to have second thoughts about moving in together. Gee, your parents took care of everything, didn’t they? Wait a minute, maybe they could move in too and take care of the cleaning, the cooking, the dog, the bills, the DVR and mummy could bring you that chicken soup when you’re sick.

The Importance of Deodorant in a Kopitiam Love Story

It is a hot day. I was buying lunch at the kopitiam. It usually takes 20 minutes. Today it is looking more like 30 minutes because two construction guys looking hot, I mean fit, were buying 300 packets of rice, presumably for the whole construction crew. But I cannot fault them. These guys work hard building our HDB flats and a man’s gotta eat when a man’s gotta eat. Usually on a 20-minute walk, I do not sweat, I mean glow. But 30 minutes is really pushing it.

Love Story
http://giphy.com/gifs/funny-hot-bored-V6KKY4tN5g3x6

 

My deep thoughts on personal hygiene were suddenly interrupted by an explosive cackle. I looked up. The lady manning the stall was laughing coquettishly at the Fit Man. Their eyes were locked across the trays of sambal kang kong and soya sauce chicken. He smiled, a little shyly, probably unused to being hit on by unabashed stall vendors. She continued her advance, vivaciously scooping extra curry into his rice till he held up his hand authoritatively – enough. It was fascinating. A Kopitiam Love Story. It made a lot of sense. There were only so many places you can meet someone. And there were only so many places you can eat at so you end up eating regularly at many of these. You meet the same vendors, you meet the same customers. It was awfully convenient.

Love Story

He moved to the cashier to pay. She nudged the cashier gently out of her territory. No one was getting in the way of True Love. Within the cacophony of life around them, she whispered the total amount. He dug around in his wallet for notes, coins and moved to hand over his money. For a brief infinite moment, their hands touched. Then it was over. He gave her one last smile. She reminded him to come back tomorrow, and watched, a little wistfully as he hurried off after his friend. Then the magic was over. Brusquely, Stall Lady turned to the next customer.

Still waiting, I returned to my musings about personal hygiene. I sniffed delicately. Okay, I smell like prata and char kway tiao. It could have been worse. I checked out the tall, smartly-dressed man at the next table devouring his fishball noodles with vigour. He’s sort of cute, in the you-have-to-lower-your-standards-when-you’re-men-shopping-in-a-kopitiam way. But he’s always eating fishball noodles. Hmm. Boring. Still, I had better use deodorant the next time I go out to buy lunch. You never know whom you’ll meet. “Next!” Stall Lady glared at me and I humbly but quickly ordered my food.

This Is Why I’m Single.

View the original post here.
Hello guys!
So, you guys remember Smith right? This is Smith.

No, not the one on the left. That’s me. I’m referring to the one on the right of course. Smith Leong.

He’s my friend who helps me navigate through the online maze that is known as Tao Bao to help me buy anything from wigs to sports bras. He sometimes bitches that I’m throwing Tao Bao off target when it comes to his customer profile. But, Tao Bao is messy and I have yet to get an account. So meanwhile, Smith has kindly offered to help me make all my purchases.

Anyway, Smith posted this well, I wouldn’t call it an article, just a link to someone’s not very coherrent thoughts on why she is single.

Based on the comments that came with the link, I guess wasn’t the only one who thought that her thoughts were all over the place. But since we’re on the topic, I would like to highlight that I actually I have a lot of thoughts on this being single thing and I am quite sure I have organised them rather logically. (Although whether each point is logical is a whole different story). So, in accordance to Smith’s suggestion here:
I am going to blog about why I am single. Smith, just for you okay. Because I realise I always procrastinate and possibly never blog about all the things you ask me to blog about. Sorry. HAHA.

#1 I have many guy friends.

Now, allow me to clarify that I am not the sort who feels that my boyfriend would be threatened by my many guy friends ok. But you know, sometimes you get your friends to QC the guy you are seeing. You think it’s tough when girls shoot down the guy that you’re considering?

(Via Buzzfeed).

Wait until you see what guys have to say about your hypothetical potentials…

That being said, I love my guy friends. They are awesome.

#2 I am a very awkward person.

Nobody believes me when I say this. But I am truly so very awkward. So sometimes people find it a pain to watch television shows on a laptop with me, because I’d make weird squealing noises and hide my face when I know something awkward is about to happen. Like so.

(Via wikia).

Trust me. You do not want to watch shows with a person who is constantly hiding her face behind the pillow during How I Met Your Mother, which in my opinion, is one of the most awkward shows in history thanks to Ted Mosby.

(Via MRWGIFS).

Omg I can’t. I also tend to fall asleep when I watch shows lying down. So I assume that most guys will find it irritating to constantly fill me in on what I just missed – either because I’m cowering behind the blanket, or because they’ve discovered that I’ve fallen asleep.

How annoying of me. And that’s also why I’m single I’m assuming.

#3 I have a blog.

Okay. I don’t mean to be very diva about it, but did you know that having a blog actually impedes guys from holding a normal conversation with you? Let me just show you some extracts of a 2 day conversation which quickly died because I refused to reply.

So this guy, he kept referencing my blog. He told me exactly what he had read, and what I had written in that post. And how he appreciated that I put this picture, with this caption, in this post. Like when I said I couldn’t check my POSB account balance because I was in the MRT?

Because you know, my post on MRT Selfies. He would insert blog references at every single opportunity. IT WAS INFURIATING. My blog is not a textbook to my heart and soul. It is the outlet where I unleash my sarcasm and bitchiness so that I can muster the self-control to not hadoken a ball of fiery rage onto people I actually see in real life.
Also, he felt the constant need to update me each time he had completed reading a new post on my blog. Dude. Do you feel the need to tell newspaper editors each time you complete reading an article in their paper? No right? Then why do you have this burning need to inform me unless you have something to contribute to it?

Seriously, I don’t need to be constantly updated on what you’re reading and what you think of my blog. I mean it’s nice to know what you guys think of my writing. Really, I appreciate all the emails I get, and I really try to answer each one of them. BUT DUDE. Showing my blog to your parents? SERIOUSLY?!

I guess the main issue I have is this –

#4 I’m very bitchy.

Yes I know. I’m very bitchy. I like to identify the difficult parts of my life and pinpoint the various stupid people who have made it that way. During the process, I like to give my uncensored opinion on what these people can do to improve my quality of living. And I like to give my opinion in the form of snarky comments which I take great pride in constructing.

(Via someecards).

One of my best ones for this year was…okay. Remember the obnoxious guy who helped me break my new year resolution #10? The guy who has an ego bigger than Jupiter and a brain smaller than a quail egg? Well, I was complaining to my friend about him, and was described as “poetic” for my efforts.

Yes, I know I could be more constructive by letting these insufferable twerps know what they are doing wrong, and how they could work on improving the lives of those around them. But you know, tact is not a character trait which comes easily to me. Especially when I have absolutely no interest in behaving civilly when all I want to do is stab the person in the eyes with my hypothetical adamantium claws.


Anyway. Bitchy – not a good girlfriend quality and therefore I am still single.

#5 I forget to reply people.

It is my understanding that when people send you texts or WhatsApps, it’s only polite that you reply. Sadly, I like to do this thing where construct the reply in my head, and then forget to send it to the person. So while I believe that I have already replied to so-and-so, so-and-so is just wondering why I didn’t bother to respond to his texts.
Which probably explains why I am single. Guys think I am ignoring them when actually, I just suffer from an overly active and overly vivid imagination. Like how I’m telling Mr Dinosaur over here.

#6 I am not always supportive.

So guys usually watch soccer and have a team that they support. I don’t. I find soccer just mildly amusing and I can get quite grumpy when I watch a game. To illustrate my point, here’s a picture of me and Smith at the Singapore vs Juventus game.
No, we don’t look very happy at all. Because you know, I’d much rather be watching something like Bones or Big Bang Theory.
But because I am a somewhat supportive girlfriend, I have always watched whatever sporting event that my previous boyfriends wanted to watch. I am really quite supportive ok. I even booked fucking Wimbledon tickets once (not that I minded, but, long story). Anyway, this is me and Wimbledon.
And me being the supportive girlfriend and taking good photos of cool people. Like Rafael Nadal.
REALLY QUITE GOOD RIGHT?! I was very proud of myself. Anyway, back to soccer. One of my ex-boyfriends used to watch soccer. He supported Liverpool. Did I support Liverpool? Of course not. Who did I support? Manchester United. Why? Because my friend said so. My friend was not my boyfriend. Anyway, friend is the best. He never fails to give me updates on my favourite team, aka Manchester United. Like yesterday.
So, I had to watch the World Cup. And this is how I decided on who to suport.
The ex, who supported Brazil, was not very pleased. But EH. I woke up at 3 am to watch the World Cup. Good enough okay.
But yes. You can see how this can be annoying this can be for boyfriends. Must be one of the reasons why they are all gone.

#7 I have selective OCD.

I really am. So this is the inside of my wardrobe.
I know! It’s extremely neat and you wish that your wardrobe was as well organised as mine. But now, just take a look at how messy I can be.
Apparently it is very hard for guys to keep track of what I’m OCD about. But a safe rule to follow is, if it’s in my wardrobe, my phone, or my laptop, I care a lot. Otherwise, I can’t be bothered.
Okay and now I am getting very sleepy and I would like to sleep. But actually these are just 7 of the maybe 20 million reasons explaiing why this Jac is single because you know, there’s also reasons like, I’m mad, irrational, and also because some people are just too daft for me. But this will do for now I guess.
And now I will leave you with this good song.
Okay sleep!
❤ Jac.

8 Differences Between Men And Women

Though we may be of the same species, there are just some things that differentiate the men from the ladies. The saying ‘Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus’ does come into play, indicating how we think, speak and act differently to quite an extent. From soccer nights to shopping trips, men and women find comfort in different ways. We carry themselves differently, focusing on the traits that seeks to define who we are individually.

But genders aside, are we really that different? Is it a classic case of Superman vs. Wonder Woman? (Yes, they’re worlds apart. Literally.)

Well, these famous individuals seem to think so! What do you think?

1. “Women always worry about the things that Men forget; Men always worry about the things Women remember.” - Albert Einstein

d2163cd8e606c510e2d0e1b9939d30fb

2. “A man’s face is his autobiography. A woman’s face is her work of fiction.” – Oscar Wilde

3. “Men learn to love the woman they are attracted to. Women learn to become attracted to the man they fall in love with.” – Woody Allen

 

4. “The cocks may crow, but it’s the hen that lays the egg.” – Margaret Thatcher

If not men, how you think you think you get your protein?

5. “Men are always looking for someone to boast to; women are always looking for a shoulder to put her head on.” – Henry Louis Mencken

giphygiphy

6.  “Men mourn for what they have lost; women for what they ain’t got” – Josh Billings

7.  “A good cigar is as great a comfort to a man as a good cry is to a woman” – Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

giphy

8. “There is a fundamental difference between men and women – women need romance, men need intrigue.” – Sherry Argov

 

Even though we may be somewhat different, we are definitely made for each other. Complementing each other’s strengths and weaknesses, supporting one another through thick and thin. It’s like that typical Singaporean saying that most of you must have heard, “AIYAH, same-same but different lah!”

I guess you can say that at the end of the day, opposites do attract after all.
