TOILET-the best place for me to ponder...

I don't where's the best place for you to contemplate about things and happenings but for me, I must admit that the place for me to properly think is the TOILET. It's amazing I know the toilet are you kidding me you must be thinking but yes, here I am dripping wet after shower and typing away coz I think that I should write my thoughts down before I start clicking into facebook and diving into the deep www which will then deviate  and distract me.

I haven't mentioned that I actually did not have an internet connection when I stayed at the Ballegio for a year. Yes me no kid. You might be wondering how the hell can I still be so active in facebook and blog so often as if I'm always glued in front of my computer screen but the fact is that I only get to go online in Uni throughout this whole year. Came to think about it's really crazy, I mean how did I manage to survive without internet at home?! But astonishing enough I actually pulled through a year without internet at home due to the never-ever-stop-coming-assignments and a part-time job at Uni Square which keeps me occupied the whole day until I'm back for rest and sleep.

Oh shoot I forgot whats the point of this post already mee la disturb me :P

OKAY! errr...yea about:
Stop living for Other people's Life and Start living for your Own.

Nothing much actually just the point about how people these days tend to go for the expected, study study study and go into the profession that they are studying and work work work. I reckon it's about how human are afraid of the challenge and to save all the trouble, might as well take the familiar path that everyone else has taken.

Yes I studied architecture and being an architect is what I'm supposed to be. It might be it that I don't thoroughly understand how an architect's life is yet but what's for sure for now is I would want to take this opportunity to actually explore my inner self and attempt various possibilities in life to earn a decent living rather than going for the norm. I don't know what to expect in the year 2010 and I might regret at some point and think that why did I not just get done with whatever Masters program and start AutoCADding and meeting clients oh wait that's till I AM the boss, before that it is merely AutoCADding your boss's design from 9am-5pm until my true inner talent slowly fades by day OMG I DONT WANT THAT LIFE CAN I PLEASE NOT?!

It's rather daunting to just think about it, all my youth and imagination spent on other people's life yes I'm selfish like that!


I still remember how inspired I was after reading those self-motivation books such as "rich dad poor dad"- Robert Kiyosaki and watching "the Secret" and Zaolon kept saying that he hated the Secret and we actually had the conversation about it being too mysterious for his liking and how it's similar with other motivation programs which at some point actually beat my believe in it, moreover the cancellation of the job offer for next year at the time. But now a silver lining in every cloud, I came out with another option to kick-start the year 2010 with strings of plans lining up and with that, I prefer to keep "the Secret" as a mysterious motivation obsession. :)

Might take a day off to date myself hahahha siao but yes, I will be dating myself and watch Avatar 3D alone and it might sound as pathetic as it seems but I reckon this outing will be the perfect time for self comprehension.

Wish me all the best and may all of us have a great 2010 ahead!! :)


  1. Liyinnnn dearr :)

    (its been a while since i left a comment on your blog!)

    Back when i was still in college, i took French! and in our final class project we had to stage a short skit in French; and this line was in it - inspiration don la toilette

    So YES! i agree, toilets can be thought provoking! :)

    Cheer up okay! =) Think through, but don't dwell. It'll all come to you, in due time! and in times like this, dating yourself is a brilliant idea! ;) spend time with yourself!

    Much love,
