Much ado about nothing

Posted: March 17, 2010 by fievel in Labels: ,

Came home from work today late at night feeling extra-epiphany-ish..Went to the kopitiam opposite my place for a cheap $5 Tiger beer by myself...with my ipod for accompaniment, which doesn't necessarily lose to human company sometimes.

The wife called me earlier, told me we just got balloted a 1400+ number in our queue for a public housing flat, for which there are only 400+ units available. It's not exactly unexpected and it's not exactly something that can dampen our Singapore not-exactly-a-dream dream any further anyway.

I don't know how all my random thoughts link up but sometimes they just come in waves, so much so I lose precious sleep over them. If I could record my thoughts graphically it'll probably strike an imaginary audience to resemble an episode of The Late Night Show with David Letterman, with a twist.

Before I took the first sip of my beer I was thinking, rather cleverly, that maybe I'll try something new tonight; rather than to analyse the same old questions about the decisions I have been struggling to make, maybe I'll analyse me, myself, as if I were outside of my own skin tonight. But of course that was just ambitious thinking. The beer straightened that weird notion out in no time.

Anyway, one thing I like about blogging is that it lets me record my thoughts down for future reference. But then more often than not, by the time I get down to it, what were earlier crystal-clear insights-of-the-century somehow just slip through my web of neurons or synapses or whatever they are called. Maybe it's finally time I go figure out twitter.


  1. *comfort* I hope things work out for you. My wife-to-be called to say she is unlikely to be able to find a new job in Singapore. So much for the increase in job supply ...

    This is gonna cause her and myself quite a bit of grief in the short to mid-term.

    Im sure things will sort itself out in time for u guys..

  1. On an orthogonal note, do you know if the performers of the song have commented on this work before? I am fairly certain they are aware of the similarity between those three mandarin words and our (in)famous local slang-phrase, given the rather bizarre nature of the scenes portrayed in the music video.

    Whoever put up the video on youtube most certainly did, given the freudian slip in the hanyu spelling :).

    Anyway, while I am certain a good number of people would find it hilarious if you dedicated the song to MBT, I am also certain the authorities would not appreciate it (given how they reacted to the mere existence of white elephant posters a long time ago).

    Hang in there, buddy.
