A store that sells new husbands has just opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:
"You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!"
So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads: Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs.
The second floor sign reads: Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids
The third floor sign reads: Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.
"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going. She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:
Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.
"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!" Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads:
Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.
She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the Sign reads:
Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.
To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opens a New Wives store just across the street.
The first floor has wives that love sex.
The second floor has wives that love sex and have money.
The third through sixth floors have never been visited.
Hey yo everybody.... i'm back again to talk about mandopop. there is this massive shift of power going on in the mandopop scene. the hong kong fellas... jialat already. most of them nowadays like stuck in hong kong already. their chinese albums are not selling... now the power is in taiwan....
the 4 heavenly king... aaron kwok andy lau leon lai and jacky cheung i think nowadays abit waning in popularity. in my very own opinion, the 4 that deserves that acolade now is jay chou, david tao, wang lee hom and our very own lin jun jie. because this 4 of them write their own songs... and i personally feel that it's very important for you to write your own song.
just think about it. somebody else writes the songs for you. you just go on stage and sing it and u put it in the cd... sing song alot of other people also can mar. put me on stage i also can man... sing nice nice for you to listen. but write song very different. somemore they can write and sing themselves. and they do it all with their own style. once u hear it, you can recognise that it's their flavour, it's their song.
but now, i'm quite happy that there are a couple more of these kind of singer song writer up and coming...
i recommend you to listen to their songs.. Tank have been hailed as the new David Tao. While 曹格 is heavily influenced by the western soul and R&B style. (think R. Kelly)
If you're not really into R&B, there's another alternative.
There're a band from Macau. Started out in Hong Kong and now they're trying to come into the mandopop scene. Very different from the current assortments of chinese bands. I would describe them to be a fusion between maroon5 and matchbox20.
i'm not trying to be funny finding 2 bands which starts with the letter 'M' and end with a number. but that's wat i really think. and if you like them you can also try listening to 石康军.
He's all the way from..... our very own singapore! also a very alternative style with a touch of british rock.
If you happen to know me well enough, you'll know that I'm in love with Elva and Twins (especially Gillian)
But they are very very pretty faces. haha... there are less famous but power packed female singers as well.... and you know what's the best thing? they are also singer song writers! hurray!
莫艳琳 (mo yan ling) and 蔡诗芸(cai shi yun). 蔡诗芸 is the shi mei (junior) or Jay Chou. They are from the same company. She has a very powerful voice but it is very crisp. Trained in classical music but now also very well versed in R&B and rock. Very versatile girl. And she's only 20. 莫艳琳 has been in the scene for quite some time. she used to just write songs. SHE wanted to use one of her songs but she rejected them after deciding to cut an album of her own.
Although her vocals are not as strong, she displays alot of maturity in her songs and the style is also very different from what we usually get in this world of mandopop. reminds me of a young Sheryl Crow.
i was surfing, and i came across a couple of interesting newspaper articles...... which i think you have to see it to believe it.....
imagine how disgusted the hippo must have felt.... imagine yourself just feeling sleepy and you start yawning.. suddenly a lizard jumps into your mouth.... OMG.... those people applaud wildly somemore. haha
yes, and finally all i can say is... ''it was an unfortunate accident''
esther ahh.... The NewPaper gotta buck up man.... hahahaha but your NTU article was interesting.. it had the ''make people want to turn to that page'' factor!!
Uni student leader in trouble for peeping
CCTV camera captures him on video fleeing women's bathroom in NTU hostel
HE was caught by the university's closed-circuit television camera lurking inside a women's toilet in his hostel block.
By Esther Huang
29 March 2006
HE was caught by the university's closed-circuit television camera lurking inside a women's toilet in his hostel block.
And was accused of peeping at a woman undergraduate in one of the bathrooms.
But the 23-year-old undergrad, a student leader from the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), mantained his innocence.
He claimed he is 'clean', and said: 'People are not interested in the truth anymore but rather in rumours.'
He added that the police have not finished their investigations.
The victim is a slender foreign exchange student with long-hair.
The hostelite was in the shower in a common women's bathroom on the second-floor toilet when she realised somebody was watching her.
She raised the alarm and he ran out of the bathroom.
But a 24-hour closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera on the corridor caught him on tape.
The woman alerted her hall's authorities and the matter was referred to campus security, who identified the peeping Tom and helped her lodge a police report.
Police spokesman Siow Cheng Cheng confirmed that a police report was lodged on 16 Mar.
A 23-year-old suspect was arrested and released on bail the same day.
The police are investigating the case as a potential outrage of modesty, which carries a maximum punishment of a year's jail or a $10,000 fine or both.
The student leader has been booted from his hostel, Hall 8.
He has also been asked to step down from his post and was urged to undergo counselling.
A spokesman for the Student Affairs Office (SAO) confirmed the incident.
It said security is tight on the campus, where some 6,000 students live in the university's 15 halls of residence. Of these, about 2,000 are women.
Security measures include round-the-clock patrols by campus wardens on cars, scooters, bicycles and foot.
Surveillance systems such as CCTV cameras and an electronic access control system are also used.
The New Paper understands that Hall 8 itself has 40 closed-circuit TV cameras worth $50,000.
The campus also has a 24-hour security hotline for security matters and services.
In a 2002 Straits Times article, NTU's vice-president of student affairs then, Mr Chong Peng Jek, was quoted as saying that since October 2001, the hall has been fitted with 40 cameras on the walls and ceilings.
He said the cameras cost $50,000.
They were part of the university's efforts to beef up security after a spate of underwear thefts and peeping Tom incidents in the previous two years.
Earlier this month, another male student was caught peeping in a woman's toilet in another of NTU's on-campus hostels.

A father passing by his son's bedroom, was astonished to see the bed was nicely made, and everything was picked up. Then, he saw an envelope propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed, "Dad." With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter, with trembling hands.
"Dear Dad, It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend, because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you. I've been finding real passion with Stacy, and she is so nice, but I knew you would not approve of her, because of all her piercing, tattoos, her tight motorcycle clothes, and because she is so much older than I am. But it's not only the passion... Dad she's pregnant. Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods, and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter.
We share a dream of having many more children. Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone. We'll be growing it for ourselves, and trading it with the other people in the commune, for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS, so Stacy can get better. She sure deserves it!! Don't worry Dad, I'm 15, and I know how to take care of myself. Someday, I'm sure we'll be back to visit, so you can get to know your grandchildren Love, your son, John.
P. S. Dad, None of the above is true. I'm over at Tommy's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the report card that's in my center desk drawer. I love you! call when it is safe for me to come home."

Spent my sunday watching meteor garden, both the new japanese version, and the old taiwan version part 1. watched only 2 episodes of the jap version so far. it's far less draggy compared to the taiwan version. and it's much more quirky. i aint gonna say much here to spoil things in case i might be lending u the dvd. but lps choped it already. so everyone else would have to wait. below is the cast of the jap version.
from left to right : san cai (obviously as she's the only ger), dao ming si, hua ze lei, si men, and finally mei zhuo.
so as u can see, compared to the original taiwanese F4, the jap guys would take abit of getting used to. they are not as dashing and might not be the tallest guys walking around japan. but at least they are very natural acting as compared to the taiwanese. and the japanese san cai is super CUTE. she might just edge barbie hsu over for the best san cai award.
the taiwanese cast
for all of u weirdoes out there who haven watched this show, it's a must watch, especially for those of us aged between 18 - 25. this is a show made and tailored for those in our age group. the interwining relationship problems. the way girlfriends treat boyfriends. why people shout at each other. why must there be some losers out there who always can't get what they want. well, the storyline might be exaggerated in a few ways but take it lightheartedly and you might actually see the similarities between them, and yourself. but there might be a small problem. it's almost impossible to get this show (taiwan version part 1) off the shelves now, but the jap version might be easier although last i heard it was out of stocks at toa payoh.
go catch this show, it's not one of those typical boring love series i promise you.
somehow like quite true... especially the mood swing part. make me sound like a girl. but true. i realised tat i tend to have plenty of mood swings. i can be happy one moment but once something small happens just a couple of seconds later my mood will completely change. it's scary. there've been alot of issues that i wanted to cover but i had neither the time nor the mood to blog. which hence explains my absence from here for so long.
i watched eternal sunshine of the spotless mind on cable a couple of nights ago. the movie literally gave me a headache. my head was spinning just before it ended and i headed for the bed as soon as it ended. the idea of the movie was good. however the ending was too abstract. coupled with the headache i couldn't continue on thinking of why whatever happened. but it was a good movie.. it's something a little like being john malkovich except that john malko dint give me a headache. both being brilliant shows exploring fantastic ideas that one can only thing of but the shows goes deeper in to show us how it will work and both the pros and cons of ideas we can only fantasize about.
the movie was about a troubled couple hating each other and they cannot stand having each other in their memories as it brings back much sadness and hatred. hence the girl decided to erase the guy from her memories. well, think about it. is there anyone that you would want to erase from your memory? is it ethnically and morally a right thing to do?
what if you find out that someone erased you off their memory. how would you feel?
Countdown to World Cup 06 - 80 days
Countdown to ORD - 85 days
the light at the end of the tunnel has appeared.............
The mega ulcer coupled with this cough of mine was too much for me. And my body was emitting heat that even fireman would not hav been able to withstand. So i decided to make a trip down to see the doctor. Went down to Tan Tock Seng Hospital's Clinic. 3 more months before i ORD. hence i gotta really make full use of the benefits that NSFs gets. One of which is free consultation of government doctors.
Reached the Clinic at 8.20am. It opened at 8.00am. and I'm number 6. Had to reach early. There was once i waited and waited and just decided to leave. I was number 475639 and it was still number 10 or 12 at that time. That was a bad experience.
There was 1 fella seeing doctor inside. 4 of us were outside. 2 of them were also NSFs. One was wearing the army shirt and the other was wearing the police polo tee. They looked damn damn sick. One was half slumped on the chair coughing his head off. The other looked like he haven slept for one week. Whole face was green colour.
I was thinking i don't look even half as sick as them.... how like that? later i cannot get the mc how? They are so sick. Set the standard so high. Wahhh.. Soon it was my turn. So i went in and came out with a day mc. Good. So i can really sleep at home and hope everything is better after taking the medicine and all.
So i waited for my prescription before heading down to the pharmacy to collect my medicine. When i reached the pharmacy. There was no sign of those 2 NSFs. hmmm. i was thinking maybe they left after collecting their medicine. hmmmmm.. but there are 2 other people still waiting for their medicine there who saw the doctor before them!! they just came to get the mc? and did not even want their medicine? wat the fiak!! its people like them that really spoil the market.
They are the cocks that make people think that NSFs take mc means is fake one. And they were looking so sick. Professional sick lookers man they all. Even i was convinced. hell man. Cheats!! Cheaters.... arrrgghhh.
The wait for the med was long. Around 20mins. longer then waiting to see doctor. Went home took the medicine and slept for very long..
I woke up to the noise of soccer playing kids and their coach downstairs. They were having a competitive match. I could see them from my house as the field is just downstairs. Those primary school kids were not very good. There were glimpse of kampung soccer as hordes of them ran towards the ball at the same time. But there was a couple of times that caught my attention.
The boy was thru on goal one on one with the goalkeeper. The goalkeeper rushed out to kick the ball away. WITHOUT touching the attacker. but he FELL flat onto the ground grapping his knee in agony. WAT???????? So nowadays even primary school kids are diving?? wat are their coaches teaching them? this is a very very wrong thing for such a young kid to do. It's bad enough to see professionals do it but now these young kids who are gonna be the future of the game? Rubbish man. They are totally spoiling the beautiful game. Sigh.
