First day of IBSS (Implementing Business Solution School), very disappointed with the course. Basically, 2 days on test condition (which is very dry) and another 2 days on Visual Basic. Just 4 ½ days, not enough to get to know anybody in depth. But that is the way things go, not like Accent on C/S.
In US, they really discriminate against the smokers. Heard from one guy that US government may ban cigarette in 5 to 10 years’ time. Possibly Singapore will do it before US. Maybe it is a good idea, why not?
Left at five thirty, had a quick and crap dinner. Headed for Walmart at half six. Bought 4 CDs (and Colin bought only one) and walked into a book store. Not really time to do any decent shopping. Colin discovered some study notes for literature. Hence I bought one for “Romeo and Juliet” and one for “Emma”. Hope I will understand the literature better that way.
The last bus was full, so one of the guy called for a taxi. Had one pizza and 2 bottles of beer at the Social Centre. Really felt very tired and tonight we planned to sleep early.
Got to say one lady from IBSS is quite pretty. Slim and attractive. Hmm.
Talked about JP with Colin and before he dozed off, he suggested that we (me and JP) should sit down and talk things over. But what is it to talk because she is very likely with another guy knowing that she can’t live without love.
And Mohamed was wrong, there is a step up transformer (the one which convert 110V to 220V) but it is too expensive and just not worth it.
Actually it is pretty sad to remain single. Those lies about being free and single and is able to do whatever one wants. Easy said than done. Don’t think I will ever have the courage to come up to a girl and you know … All in all, it is just loneliness. One’s life will not be completed without someone one loves. The world is so big, full of emptiness and void. Then again, it’s life and it may as well turn good later one. Who knows?
Saturday, woke up early in order to pack up for my US trip. Stepped out of the hotel after midday and took a taxi to CDG airport. And there I go, I have to fly again. Called up my family at the business lounge. Always nice to talk to family.
The flight was about eight hours. I still think that Singapore Airline is the best so far. As for the Air France business class, it was not at all that fantastic. Kind of a bit disappointed.
Today was pretty cloudy in US. So not a very nice day indeed. It was just as depressing as Europe. The funny thing is that I don’t really feel that much as compare to what I have imagined. This really puzzled me. Guess when one travel too frequent, everywhere is just the same.
Colin left me a message and when I knocked onto his room, he was not in. Kind of disappointed and as I have missed the dinner hour, I have to go to the Social Centre and had my pizza. By the way, the American beer – Honey Brown – is pretty good.
Left a message in Colin’s room and we met at the Social Centre. Throughout the night, he was very tired and we didn’t get to talk much.
Feeling kind of lonely. I miss JP again.
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?
