Inbreeding

Added a disclaimer…

————————————

A good friend of mine & i talked about the issue of inbreeding before. We were referring to the syndrome of church people dating one another, breaking up, and getting attached to another…

We didn’t mean it in any cynical sense… just that if u mix around with the same group of people a lot, given a no. of years of socializing, that is almost bound to happen. It happened in her church… and it happened in mine… er, i mean, to me.

And when “old acquaintances” are brought up unknowningly, i do feel al ittle strange… esp. in situations like… i’m having lunch with my ex, and his ex… or so & so are getting married… and i’ll be thinking… yeah, she was the 3rd party. Do i congratulate her, and what do i congratulate her for? Her wedding or her successful deceit? (Disclaimer: Miss 3rd Party wasn’t originally from my church. She joined when she was after my ex-bf… and by the grace of God, she became a believer – i think.) Till this day, Miss 3rd Party doesn’t dare look me in the eye… and once, when i was standing just across her on the MRT (we flanked the entrance of the train), she pretended she didn’t know me at all even though i was staring at her.

Anyhow, inbreeding is not good!! But well, that’s just my gripe.

New song!!

Ah… the very first English song on my blog! This is a now not so new song by Daniel Bedingfield (i’m not sure if he ever released another album after his 1st) but i like the tune a lot. Heh. Enjoy…

The title is If You’re Not the One.

Oh wait… i just googled… he’s still in the market… www.danielbedingfield.com (what a name!)

Anyway, it’s been an exciting day today… (or rather yesterday)… we closed a penthouse, i served a 93.3 DJ (and he was really really funny & friendly! I hope he buys the unit! 😛 I’m a new fan!), and i can expect a law suit coming up? Sigh…

Power of the video recording hp…

There’s been this furore in Hongkong recently, sparked off by a video clip taken using a hp on a public bus. Apparently, this middle-aged man was talking very loudly on his hp while on the bus. A young man seated behind the middle-aged man then pat his shoulder and asked him to lower his voice. This pissed the middle-aged man off and he then scolded the young man for a good 6 minutes…

After the clip got circulated on the Internet, some remixes of the clip, with hip songs and all started getting passed round like crazy. Heh. The videos are pretty vulgar (‘cos the middle-aged man kept swearing)… but funny too.

I thought the young man was a little cowardly. If someone kept swearing that he was going to f*ck my mother, i would’ve either scolded him till he shut his trap up, or i would’ve just called the police and make a report that the guy was threatening me. (The middle-aged man was really aggressive. I’m surprised the bus driver didn’t intervene.) I mean, i would never pick on something and not follow through with it!!
