Woke up really late. In fact if “room service” never called me this afternoon, I would have slept a little bit longer. As usual, had my “standard” lunch which is cheese and bread, fruit salad, a cup of tea and this time, a glass of Martini as well. What a wonderful life.
Spent the whole day writing up a document on MUE for William. Took me several hours to do it. But after all, I don’t have anything better to do anyway. Called up Grace and had a dinner with her. We went to a very nice restaurant and really wanted to try the Steak Tartar but had rump steak in pepper source instead.
Woke up at ten. First time in history because Cecile invited me for a lunch at her place. I mean Cecile is quite a woman. French woman and truly feminine. I have never seem someone as feminine as her. Wow! She is slim with 2 kids (and not married!). Her boyfriend come home once in a week (I guess) and she has to take care of 2 kids of theirs. Quite incredible. And she reads a lot of books as well and she knows quite a number of poems.
That makes me wonder who shall be my partner of life. She would be ideally:
- Love children
- Have strong opinion of her own (and clever)
- Like to read and appreciate literature (hopefully be artistic)
- Give me security and love me
- Get along well with my family
- Love nature
Cecile’s friend is a civil engineer and he has got a wife and a kid as well. Hence throughout the whole Saturday afternoon, I was with three kids. Do I like kids at all? Maybe I do love to have my own kids.
And in the evening, I met up with Alvin and Pui (from HK). I seriously think there is something going on between those two. I hate to go out in threesome. I swear I shall try to avoid this in the future. We had Mexican food before the movie (Dante’s Peak). I kind of like the visual effect but I don’t think they appreciated it at all. Too picky.
I suggested to take a walk to the Eiffel Tower but it was not lit up at all. We wanted to have a drink but there wasn’t any at that area. We then went to Rue Montmartre (near their hotel) and had a drink. It was a Karaoke Bar and I had a beer.
Too much alcohol nowadays and I do have craving for alcohol. Kind of scary, isn’t it?
Thunder rolls and the sky cracks opened. Dark dense clouds circulates above the ocean. A beam of light shines onto the sea. Bubbles release from the surface. Small bubbles. Big bubbles. Signify the rise of a monument that shall stand to the end of time.
Thunder roars and the lightning strikes. Chase away the vicious darkness. The earth shakes with the boom of the blast. Creature gathers together. Small creatures. Big creatures. Witness the rise of a monument that shall stand to the end of time.
A heart made of steel. No rust shall ever corrupt this beautiful statue. Steel came from the purifying furnace, no scar shall penetrate deeper than just the surface. Seven angels sing, accomplish by the harmony coming from seven beautiful instruments.
Celebrate this moment of time. Enormous as it shall be, it stands proudly above the water. Colored fume whirls and wraps around this statue. Slowly, the statue takes its form.
A different time, a different form. Does that matter? And the obelisk of time, life and joy is once again reconstructed.
This afternoon I called up Benny and found that he has not read my email that was sent to him more than 2 weeks ago. And he told me that all the family members were in the dark not knowing what was happened between me and her sister. Too me, it is really over. I shall not approach her again and beg for her love. Maybe if she does it, I may have a second thought.
This evening, I met up with the BNP team. Had a very long dinner and had a drink. I nearly missed my last train (4 min). Lucky me. Otherwise, I wouldn’t want to walk.
And this morning, this French Lady called me and asked if I am free tomorrow for a lunch. Why not? She has 2 kids and a boyfriend. I hope it would be interesting. For that, I will miss the BNP team in La Defense.
Today was the big day for me because it was the first time I gave training. I have always wanted to give lecture and so on. And finally it came true. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Funny thing was at some point in time, some of my clients actually feeling very tired but I hoped I have made it interesting enough to keep them awake. It was after all, a very good experience.
And I have bought the Bee Gee’s new album. I love the song “Alone”. Kind of suit my lifestyle right now.
Claude took me to a restaurant and told me that it would be good. It was Fauchon. There was one in Singapore (Christmas diner, remember?) The atmosphere was very good. Very yellow and light colored. Candles and large plants. And it was very expensive too.
Suddenly feel very tired and feel like falling sick again. Oh, no.
