Saint Valentine

So, its the time of the year again where we see couples doing lovey-dovey things. Some spend a bomb and some spend $0. Well, I had no date for today (Wow, big surprise there!). And I don't give a fuck except that its the only day of the year that reminds me that I'm single.

Right, so, anyways, I did a few love/relationship tests at

And these are the results. This has to be the most redundant and self-centred post yet. Wahaha.

Who's the Man of Your Dreams?
A Secret Agent is the man of your dreams

Mystery and intrigue — it's not just for action-adventure movies. It's what you are looking for in life and love. From spontaneous weekend getaways to notes stuck in your jean pockets, you love being surprised and appreciate the extra thought and effort that goes into making it happen.

That's why a secret agent could steal your heart — he's got what it takes to change the world, but he's not about to go around shouting about it. But don't worry, your secret's safe with us. Shhhh.

Who Catches Your Eye?
Your crush is the Class President

Hello, First Lady. A smart and motivated gal like you should set your sights high when it comes to your crush. Forget the slackers or burnouts. You should go for a guy who's got brains, ambition, and people skills (good looks wouldn't hurt either). Only an achiever and well-liked beau will be able to keep up with a first-class lass like you.

A guy who's heading up the student council, spearheading a car-wash fundraiser, and winning everyone over with his charisma and charm is the right candidate for you. He's the responsible type who'll make Mom and Dad proud. And you'll feel proud when your next stop is the campaign trail or The White House!

What's Your Sense of Humour?
Your sense of humour is Sarcasm

Oh yeah, you're really funny. (Actually you are, but you're so sarcastic that it's hard to tell when you're joking.) You mean what you say, but almost never say exactly what you mean. In fact you usually say the exact opposite. For instance, if your friend is wearing an ugly watch, you might tell them, "I wanted a watch like that once, but I got the wrong Happy Meal." Yep, there's a slight edge to your humor, but all you are really doing is telling it like it is, only like it's not.

Whether you're roasting a friend or playing social critic, your deadpan delivery and dry cynicism go a long way to expressing your true feelings...and making people laugh along the way.

What's Your Relationship Destiny?
Your relationship destiny is to Find a Fairy Tale Ending

Cinderella, Snow White — those ladies knew what they were doing. And like these fairy tale heroines, you're a princess at heart who believes that love really does make the world go round. Of course, you're not waiting to be swept off on someone's white horse — you're a modern gal who's not afraid to do a little rescuing yourself.

Independent and confident, you're not about to rely on fate to give you what you want. You've got the drive and spirit to pursue your dreams and find your own destiny. And you're sure to bump into Prince Charming along the way. That's a happy ending!

Why Are You Still Single? (Ohh, the big one!)
You're single because you don't want to slow down

Whether you're working all hours, busy with school, or planning a cross-country move, it sounds like you just don't have time for anyone else in your life...right now, that is. Your timing may be off in other aspects, too. Chances are, you've met that perfect person who just so happens to be married or planning their own cross-country move. So take a step back for a moment. Is there something underlying this? Could it be you're afraid to get involved for some reason or another, and are therefore attracted to people who are simply unavailable?

Whether you're secretly sabotaging yourself or not, try a little exercise. Open your mind to those who are around you (and available!) right now. Then let up on your schedule to let that someone in. That is, unless you want to get married to your goals, and not Mr. or Mrs. Right.

Who's Your Type?
Your type is the Brain

Let's put it this way — you would never date the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz. A guy without a brain is not the guy for you! Your Mr. Right is well-read, extremely knowledgeable, and can beat anyone at Trivial Pursuit. He can hold his own in any intellectual conversation, and he's got an insatiable desire to learn. You prefer a strong mind over strong muscles and have no patience for someone who considers TV mentally stimulating.Whether it's because he can take apart a computer and rebuild it at the speed of light or the way he can recite the price of any stock on the market, his brainpower impresses you. You love to learn, and there's no better knowledge than the kind you get from someone you love!

What Are You Looking for in a Relationship?
You're looking for a Best Friend

There are many different ways to look at relationships, but for you, finding a best friend, the one person you share everything with, is the most important. Some people focus more on the romantic image of a soul mate to last the span of time, but you probably prefer the reality of making the most of every moment of every day. And who better to live those moments with than someone who's true blue through and through?

The ideal match for you is probably someone who can anticipate the next word out of your mouth and who laughs at the punch line before you even tell it. Chances are it's important to you that they'd expand your circle of friends, introduce you to new places, faces, and experiences, too. Whether this relationship is here for the short- or the long- term, you're a take-it-as-it-comes kind of person, with few expectations or fairytales to live up to. You'd take your constant companion and trusted secret-keeper over a fairy princess or Prince Charming, any day. Whether you realize it or not, there's someone out there who feels the same way about you. Like you, that someone is looking for the one person to be their best friend — both in the bedroom and out.

What's Your Best Quality?

Your top quality is Independence. Combined with your second- and third-ranked qualities, Intelligence and Determination, you have a very unique set of characteristics you can use to your advantage.

Being highly independent means liking to do things on one's own and being naturally self-sufficient. Independent people are as a whole more determined than most and tend to have higher intelligence. However, it is also true that one can be independent without having high determination or intelligence and vice-versa. Another thing most highly independent people have in common is that they can possess a greater sense of integrity than many people around them do.

People scoring high in intelligence are more likely to be unique. Higher intelligence offers greater possibilities in terms of how someone is likely to interpret the world. In addition, intelligent people are typically more able to articulate themselves well and to have high integrity.

Scoring highly on this quality indicates a strong ambition in life — the kind of drive that makes a person determined to reach the goals they set for themselves. People high in determination are more likely to make decisions easily and to have a strong sense of themselves. These types are normally slightly independent. They also often look past the superficial side of life, making them more down to earth than many people.

Hmm, any wonder why I'm still single?

World Politics

Singapore's population is projected to be at 6.5 million within the next decades or so. Crap. I'm worried. We're already so dense at 4.5 million right now. How the hell are we going to cope with this influx of people living here in the future?

HDB is also exploring the concept of "Housing in a Park" to complement Singapore's vision of a "City in a Garden."
Okay, yes. We have the similar sentiments on this. But I just can't digest the fact that we're going to be more populated.

Queue lines will be more longer than it already is, we'll have to wait longer for things, the buses and MRT will be more crowded, I will bump into more people on the streets and yadda yadda.

I should seriously be thinking of moving out. I need space. I don't think I'm suited for city-stress living for my entire life. Or maybe I am. Time will tell.

On a sidenote, I feel that Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton are really interesting candidates for the US Presidency. (Yeah you maybe thinking heck, anyone is better than Bush) They brought up some pressing and important issues and promised to tackle them. But hey, actions speak louder than words. Eventhough I'm not an American, the war in Iraq was a tragic mistake indeed. Infact, it was a fucking stupid mistake.

Meanwhile, global warming, is serious shit. It has been landing us in hot soup. It has resulted floods in Indonesia and Malaysia as well as freak weather conditions in some other countries. The Ice caps melting, sea levels are rising and the Maldives is being projected to sink etc. I never thought about it really affecting us. Its like all these while in geography lesson few years back, all I heard was that we should play our part, because of the effects it has on the earth and it ended there. The El-Nino effect, the Greenhouse effect. Heck, they were just words and theories back then. But now, its freaking reality. This is scary.

Sometimes, I think about my future, and I don't even know what to think of. The future is a scary place to be thinking of when the present is already as screwed up as it is.

Sometimes, I find myself writing poems at un-earthly hours (i.e.: the graveyard shift) and sometimes I feel that I scrutinise myself a little way too much.

I suppose most of us have expectations imposed on us in some way or another. Either by external parties or expectations that we place upon ourselves. As for me, I've stopped having expectations. I just want to do the best that I can at whatever task I undertake and that's it. That way, I won't feel so disappointed and I wouldn't feel like I've let myself down.
Because its the feeling of being let down that is the worst feeling for me. I despise the way I feel weak and hopeless after the inertia of disappointment sinks in. Its the worst feeling,ever. It ranks second to the feeling that you get when a loved one passes away.

Any hoots, its been almost a year plus since I last broke down. I'm pretty damn well proud of myself. Its been months since I last cried. I honestly think that I've lost my ablity to cry. Does such a thing exist? Perhaps its because I've cried way too much for half of my life (10 years) or maybe I'm just a much more stronger person now. Wahaha. Don't mess with me, ya'll!
