Tonight we had a wonderful dinner in Cynthia’s aunt’s place. A lot of tasty food and got a chance to meet up with her relatives. It has been quite a while since I have experienced any family event like this.
Father’s day. Started off pretty good. We went “dim sum” together. Only that my sister was late for half an hour. Mum was late for one hour. Dad wasn’t very happy. But that is just Dad, he is never happy.
True enough, we had a big argument over one small thing. Dad was trying to install something into the computer that in the end, messed up the Internet connection. My intention was to let sister to “get her hands dirty” and learn how to remedy the case. Hence I just walked away and he was so so angry.
Watched “Con Air” with my sister.
Black Friday and therefore, I stayed at home the whole day. Thanks to Lora’s Internet account, I spent a few hours surfing the net. Interesting enough, I got into the Singapore government website. Found most I need from HDB and ROC. Feel really happy. Oh so happy.
Still fighting hard to stay away from nicotine. Kind of hard this time. It gets harder and harder each time. God, I know a much stronger will.
Tomorrow lunch, I shall be meeting with a large group of Oxford HK Gang. (Joked with Annie that I have been expelled from Oxford Sing Gang.) Maybe I shall feel a lot better after I break the news to the whole world.
Now, I don’t really miss her that much. I hate her for bringing me so many problems. But on the other hands, as my Mum said, it is better to get a house of my own. Things can get really complicated on ownership alone. Parents always right.
Had “Dim Sum” with Aunt Annie and Aunt Chan, and their respective daughters as well. Kitty is not as stunning as last time I met her (one and a half years ago). Wonder why.
Finished reading “Romeo and Juliet”, will read it once again.
What else have I achieved today? Well, my Dad bought me a game (Command and Conquer). What a lovely daddy he is! And I practiced the “Beautiful Blue Danube”.
Met up with Alex for a drink in Wanchai and he also bets that I will see JP before I get married. Anyway, his point is that I shall “let it be”.
I think I should. Just too much for me to cope with already.
Today I was totally immersed in boredom. Think of what to do was really a pain. Therefore I decided to write the weekly status report instead. Really couldn’t spend the whole day doing it and hence, spent the rest of the day reading the VTF menu volume one. Kind of a daft thing to do but hey, what the hack!
First thing in the morning, I called up Ginger. Thought I have given her enough nightmare. Just an apology. This whole thing is a total bad experience. Guess one has to go through some tough time (and decision) from time to time.
Received an email from my sister this morning. A bit worry about whether George and her will work out. I mean, I don’t really know that guy that well. And he doesn’t like taking photo with my sister. As said by her, probably only less than 10 photos. Kind of sad. I think I should write her a nice email explaining some sense into her mind.
From next week onwards, I will be working like a refugee (hey, today was spring cleaning). As there will be a new guy coming in especially for the MUE project, I will lose my crappy working place. And I have to work in another office. Pretty sad again.
I knocked off at 5:45 and Claude took me for a nice walk showing me all the nice places. Somehow I started off the topic about girlfriend and he told me that he has lost his girlfriend after his Sydney trip. Pretty sad (again), isn’t it? I understand that he has been with this girl for 1 year and she told him that she is not good enough for him and so on. And she has been avoiding him lately. Very similar story. How come when it comes to the breakup, the girl is always the gentle one?
As for Laurent, few days ago, he told me that he was married. He looked kind of young and I was in shock. He then told me that his marriage has only lasted for a few months and he wife has left France. What is love? Kind of fragile, isn’t it? (As quoted from my sister) But now, Laurent is with another girl.
These strike me really hard. Is it really so hard to maintain a relationship, I am asking myself. Does it mean that love never conquer distance? I always think that love should be strong enough to withstand just anything.
As for Aurore, she once had a boyfriend but he lived very far away from her. In the end, after influenced by the people in the office, she has broken off from her lover.
Back to what I have done tonight. I went out with some of the BNP team and had dinner near the Sacred Heart Church. Very impressed by the way I talk. I mean I could never make any decent long conversation before. Munchie (nake name) told me that I am very different from HK guy and Singapore guy. In the end, he told me it is the value that is different.
Went to Champs-Elysees, Virgin Mega Store and bought the new Depeche Mode CD.
