After I paid for Bren's Hi-Card, I can now easily contact him. He's got 24 more weeks before his final year exams, and it'd be a rocky acclivity ahead. Funny thing was, I had some difficulty remembering how to solve those quadratic equations and factorisation. Remember how to find X and Y by using either Elimination or Substitution method?

And then there's mesuration. I accidently mistook it for menstruation, much to our embarassment! Notwithstanding, the science syllabus covers topics like puberty and even had a well-illustrated segment on how to use a condom and how it looks like. I'm impressed!

I would never want Brenden to experience what both Angela and myself have gone through; yet the irony of life and evolution is such that those that are able to withstand the toughest conditions usually triumph. He needs love. I do not know how to give love, not having being the recipient of it itself. It is an experience being a father and a brother.

Last evening, after Chocolate Bar, Cindy and myself spent a couple of hours at the Esplanade Waterfront. We gazed across the river at the beautiful array of lights from the skyscrapers and Fullerton Hotel. I spoke of "Drifting", the first poem I ever wrote. She talked about her past. I was surprised how little I knew of her. We are similar in many ways. We are strong fighters. We feel inept very often; we feel a need to prove ourselves. And we don't believe in Heaven.

It's scary how history can shape the future in ways that we never knew.
It's scary how we tend to overcompensate.
But it's a marvel how evolution works: those the survives the toughest conditions never die, and appreciate the simpler things of life, while the pampered and sheltered, if left unawakened, festers and expires.

Hey channel 8's showing Nang-Nak!

You're a ..... man.

Will Will,

you amazed me with this postings. You are a good brother and man, that I can tell you.

About you and your friend not believing in heaven... Though I am not a man to force my view on others, still I have to say this; How do we get through our suffering on earth, if we are not able to dream of heaven?

So I guess you found yourself another "heaven"... whatever it maybe that gets you through.

"It's scary how history can shape the future in ways that we never knew."

it's even scarier how the ambiguity of future, or the fear of it, shapes our present.

"those the survives the toughest conditions never die"

are you talking about 'survival of the fittest'? sometimes i wonder whether one survives an tough pedicament because he's fit, or gets tougher after he survives it.

I think it's the best.
Those that fail to face up to the challenge, stray upon the first step.

Sometimes it's scary to know you have to constantly stay fit to put yourself on the competitive edge.
No matter how much you've done, it never seems enough. You just keeps on going and going, pushing and pushing.

need help


i just started my LJ, but i dont know how to use the codes to modify my LJ. I am wondering if you can help me. All i wanted to learn is how to modify the comments links to a style that i want (ie. like yours is <1paths|walk your path>). I want to change the default to something else of my liking. And lastly the background drop for the LJ.

Could you help me, please?

You could read up the FAQ, to your left hand side.
or "Have a question?"

Pretty helpful.
