- make laughing a daily affair, even at work, despite or rather in spite of the menopausal characters there that make it a strong contender for Satan's favourite summer home
- stop being a hypochondriac suspecting every sneeze to be an air-borne infectious disease
- stop turning into a Victorian boarding school matron and relax a little. (Drugs anyone?)
- unplug the umbilical cord that is my internet connection and enjoy the sunshine
- have the courage to switch off my phone with full confidence that it will not herald the 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse and the world would still revolve as it should
- to respond rather than react. Main advantage being that my voice would not hike up several decibels and vex the dogs.

I am suspending scepticism for a while.
But that would mean that I must not read the news. Bad news make great headlines. Inequitable policies and greedy politicians make for great conversations. Especially when its easier to talk against the government than for the Opposition.
Until we have a true statesman, and no, I do not think that we have one on either side of the fence, voting - at least for me, will be a matter of who I distrust the least.
Truth of the matter is, nation building still hinges on whats-in-it-for-me multiply 27 million people.
Skepticism is easy. Too easy. Its easier to avoid heartbreak if I let go my ideals of a utopia, and as it is, only a fool would pursue Xanadu. (cue music). And leaving the country seems like an easy way out.
when the non-locals in my workplace bitterly complain about this country of ours, there has been times when I am ready to not so subtly tell them to go back where they came from.
Hm, not unfamiliar rhetoric. Disturbing too. Moral high ground just got steamrollered.
How can I decrying a Singaporean bashing my country, when I do the same. Do I only rely on my IC as proof of my locus standi over his?
Is my cynicism justifying the criticism.
Someone Twittered that citizenship is a responsibility.
Perhaps that is not just a pretty phrase.

So less traumatic lodgings was finally found in the form of Danny and Co’s welcoming home. They have been well loved judging from how they have grown from the size of wee baby booties to now resembling fluffy bedroom slippers.
I am babysitting the furry rodents for the week until Danny returns from vacation. Man, I forgot how much they poop.

Random old skool MTVs are depressing. Being grown up is boring especially when I catch myself wondering why other people can't be more responsible. Hah! I missed all the warning signs.
An even thinking of perming my hair. That is just friggin wierd. Where did this aunty come from. Do you even know me?

Yes, beyond noticing my knack for stating the obvious, the more astute of you would also realise that I am writing again ..um obviously.
Explaining my disappearance would not only dissipate the air of mystery that I have carefully architectured but it would also take too much effort. Especially on my part.
Suffice to say that new leaves have been turned, fresh chapters begun and life is being lived as it should, as oppose to wringing my hands complaining that its driving past too fast and at my displeasure.
Its good to be back. Expect more changes...
