I have been having difficulties getting to sleep at night. This has been ongoing for a while. What appears to be a symptom related to study stress has stretched far beyond that. I find that I fall asleep easier during exam period. However, given that the exam is over for some time, this situation is of worry. Am I turning into a bat? The thing is, I don't take afternoon naps anymore. So, what keeps me awake? I refrain from consuming caffeinated drinks at night. I even cut down caffeine consumption during the day.

Last night, I hardly slept again. Currently, while writing this entry, I feel dizzy and nauseous. If this condition persists, I might wear out before my time is out. I need to get some sleep. Where are the sheep when you need them?

To Do List

There is so much that needs to be done and I have yet to get started. I am embarking a new chapter in life. No more fooling around. For starters, my wardrobe needs to be overhaul. Need to get new clothes for the new chapter of my life. The usual dress code is no longer suitable.Getting new clothes is such a grueling task. It is not that I dislike shopping but the fact of hunting for something I like and fits me like a sock is just arduous. Not to mention formal clothes comes with a hefty price tag.

Apart from that, it seems impossible to find a suitable bag.It is either too big, too small, or just simply ugly. Why is it that the purchasers can't bring in proper, or should I put it as fashionable yet functional bags? These people surely have bad taste. I feel that there need to be amendments to the requirements for hiring purchasers. One should have fashion sense to be a purchaser. Don't just bring in rubbish and place a hefty price tag on it to claim it is worthy of purchase. The product should have value to the customer and not value to the company. Simple common sense will go a long way.

There is also the shoe problem. Comfortable shoes are ugly. Fashionable shoes are only good to look at. Even the most expensive shoes fail to perform. Wearing the wrong shoe will lead to a bad day because when the feet hurts, your mood, emotion and all will be affected. The issue faced is even money can't buy Cinderella a glass slipper. There simply is no suitable shoe available. All that are available are eyesores and a pain in the foot.

Next on the list is an essential tool. Although there are other gadgets that can tell time (such as looking at the sun, the handphone, the laptop, etc), nothing beats the watch. The watch serves as the time teller as well as an accessory. Finding the perfect match is another issue.

Being an "artist" is part of growing up. Nowadays, one needs to be skilled at "facial art". Whether or not you make the cut is dependent on the first impression. If you show up looking like a Chinese opera singer, you will be sure to be told to audition with the opera. Make-up skill is of vital importance. But I have not had any lessons on it. Note to education providers: Make make-up a subject. Worse still, I don't even own make-up.

And then there is the long overdue item to get....the wallet. Velcro ones are no longer feasible (stopped using them since leaving high school). The current one should have retired long ago. However, since failing to get a substitute, the ailing fellow is still servicing me.

There is also the absolute essential. The necessity for mobility. The glorious creation of human kind. The car. It is about time I have one to call my own.

My list is endless. Looking for sponsors. Both cash and cheque is acceptable.

Little Wonders

Little Wonders
By Rob Thomas

Soundtrack: Meet The Robinsons
Title: Little Wonders (Rob Thomas)

let it go,
let it roll right off your shoulder
don't you know
the hardest part is over
let it in,
let your clarity define you
in the end
we will only just remember how it feels

our lives are made
in these small hours
these little wonders,
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away,
but these small hours,
these small hours still remain

let it slide,
let your troubles fall behind you
let it shine
until you feel it all around you
and i don't mind
if it's me you need to turn to
we?ll get by,
it's the heart that really matters in the end

our lives are made
in these small hours
these little wonders,
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away,
but these small hours,
these small hours still remain

all of my regret
will wash away some how
but i can not forget
the way i feel right now

in these small hours
these little wonders
these twists & turns of fate
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away but these small hours
these small hours, still remain,
still remain
these little wonders
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away
but these small hours
these little wonders still remain

Why Do Men Have Nipples?

A blogger post this question "Why Do Men Have Nipples?" and received numerous replies. There is one particular reply that I liked most.

Once upon a time, God created men who have big boobs. Thinking that men are lonely without their counterparts, they will be lonely. Thus, women were created for the men, but this time, the women had no boobs yet. Unfortunately, the women were ignored as the men like boobs, big boobs to be exact. The men played each other's boobs everyday without fail and let the ladies off neglected since they have no boobs.

Furious, God decided that the men were outrageous to neglect HIS godly creation of female. Thus, he sentenced that all males will have their boobs removed and had their nipples remain to remind of their stupidity. And all the females had the boobs from God.

Since then, women have boobs and most unevolved men are still chasing after boobs even after all these evolving years. :P

(Extremely creative answer. If it were an answer for exam, this person would get a distinction for it. Well done.)

The wonders of China. The land of the innovative, creative, imaginative and intelligent.


Oh I really love this. The puma with spikey mane.Very creative indeed.


Chima. What a name. Wonder why it's wearing a skirt though.


Combination of Puma and Jansport I think. Love the sleeping animal.


Very smart to package their shampoo identical to P&G's Rejoice.


Swoosh with another hook. Salute those who can't tell the difference.


There is one "imitation" outlet named KLG with a hen for the logo instead of Colonel Sanders. Too bad I didn't take a picture of it.




Mother: Go get me a packet of TIDS (TITS).


OLAY is a lotion. Don't know how it became shampoo. Maybe their shampoo is multipurpose .
