We arrived at the competition place very early, 8.30 am and lazed on the cushions at the planetarium's lobby for half an hour. Twenty five secondary schools were taking part and they promised us that this year's competition will be much faster than last year's because two launchers were being used instead of one.
Lately I had been following the news at 8.00 pm because there was nothing else to do when typing my work in the living hall. From the hour long broadcast (including various advertisements) I can assume an average of 20 minutes of news about politics and bad stuffs were shown to the public. Dirty politics, lawsuits, crimes, natural disasters etc.
All these negative vibes tarnishes the soul.
When I was in Borneo, I never watched the news for 3 years, and I was a happier person. Really. You can call me an ignorant person, but I believe as the good wizard Ridcully of Discworld; if they stopped yelling at you after two minutes, it means there is nothing worth knowing about.
I will try to ignore the news this evening, and tomorrow, and the day after. Ignorance is indeed bliss, maybe because we don't have to carry those bad ideas in our heads.
Tell me if I am wrong.
Nothing much worth mentioning, mainly because the things I'd like to mention are too graphic, horrible, thought provoking or somewhat silly.
At work, many colleagues considered me as odd. Students are baffled with the double personalities. Close friends saw the dark abyss within, and tiptoe carefully around it. Casual encounters would leave people the impression of myself being shallow, arrogant and even hostile.
Love is a battlefield. People get hurt loving. Yet we go through the stages of difficulties, hoping to get to the final bliss, the nirvana, of true love.
Anyway I am going to celebrate my 100th entry by going out and get myself a large cup of ice blended. Maybe with a crony or two. Maybe doing some fun things. Illegal things. Ha ha ha ha.
May the Force be With You Guys.
Return back from school and stopped by the handphone shop near my house. I decided to try wireless internet connection because.... oh there are a few reasons, and I do not need to bother your pretty heads with them.
I told them I want wireless internet connection. They said can, but the simcards will only be available tomorrow. I said I don't have time to wait and I will bring my business elsewhere. They said, wait, wait up, we shall see what we can do. I said, ok, do your best, because I hate waiting long. They said give them half an hour.
I went back home, had a shower and was about to lol myself to sleep when the telco shop called; we are ready. Pull myself out off bed and drove.
Where is it? Here. I want another colour (modem). Black is so dull (which was untrue, I like black, but the black wireless modem is ugly). Oh ok, how about this white one (taking a new box from under the counter) which is more expensive but I can see you know what you want so we will give you the same price (I just love being pampered while shopping). Oh ok. When can I use this thing?
Music to my ears. :)
