    Sexual release helps creativity?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 29 Sep '15, 3pm

    I (used to) have a friend who writes text books for a living. It has been difficult for me to start writing as much as I did before so I shared with him on a text message that I have been feeling anxious about some (temporary) things that are happening in my life and asked him how he ...

    A guy should always foot the bill?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 23 Sep '15, 3am

    I heard from my friend that her married male friend complained that his wife makes him pay for everything, including their food and taxi. She's a stay-at-home mom and she wants to find a part-time job. This guy and his other guy friend think she is very wrong for not splitting the exp...

    Travelling is a lazy way of trying to sound more interesting

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 22 Sep '15, 8am

    No idea how to spend the long week? Take a vacation overseas and instantly become a more interesting person! Have you ever met anyone who is well-traveled ? I'm sure you have. He has been there, seen and experienced those amazing things, wow right? When I was on Tinder for several wee...

  • Cincinnati: 27-31 January 2015

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 15 Mar '15, 8am

    I'd only been to the US once. It was 8 years ago. I recall the long flight, hardly being able to sleep on the plane despite flying on business class and jet lag. So when I heard that I had to make a trip to the US to a quiet city again, I was not delighted. However, I'm the "when life...

    No sushi, no sex!

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 26 Feb '15, 11am

    A friend told me that he corresponded via email with a woman who asked him whether he likes sushi. When he replied that he didn't fancy it, he received an angry email from her stating that she didn't want to continue corresponding reason being "You saying that you don't like sushi is ...

    "If you want to f*** let's get it on" and rude things guys say

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 25 Feb '15, 10am

    That was a rude message that I've received in my inbox from some random guy. That line won't work on any woman at all so why do guys bother to write such messages? Another rude message that I received was from a guy whom I got to know at a special interest forum unrelated to sex and r...

    Am I jetlagged if I'm waking up at 5am?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 18 Feb '15, 10pm

    Have you noticed that I've been posting blogs early in the morning? I was jetlagged upon returning from Los Angeles (16 hours behind Singapore). It's not only my sleep that was disrupted but also my bodily functions. I would wake up at 3am feeling hungry and be unable to get back to s...

    What it's like dating a fat guy

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 16 Feb '15, 11pm

    First of all, why would I date a fat guy? By fat, I don't mean obese. He could be someone with a some extra flab. Perhaps he's going through a difficult time in this life, e.g. stress at work causes people to eat more or have less time to exercise. Everyone goes through difficult peri...

    "I didn't get you a gift because I hardly know you"

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 15 Feb '15, 11pm

    In my good old school days, boys who wanted to get to know a girl better, get her attention or confess his secret admiration for her would take the opportunity to give her a gift on Valentine's day. This was the norm. When the boys have all grown up (hopefully), they should continue t...

    Do cocky guys have big cocks?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 15 Feb '15, 4pm

    Cock size plays a part in a man's confidence level. One guy told me that his cock is so big that he's confident enough to strip and exhibit his erection for all to see. Very cocky! I know this guy in person. He is confident and speaks in a cocky manner. Some gals go crazy over verball...

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 14 Feb '15, 10am

    You could ever go wrong with Godiva chocolates! I would totally apply to be their spokeswoman if the position was open - but it's unlikely they would need one! I received just this one box of Godiva chocolates for V day from a friend. Such a cute box! The other 2 were for a previous o...

    Do you believe in Like at first sight?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 12 Feb '15, 9pm

    Although I believe love at first sight is a fairy tale , I believe like at first sight is real. If you've read Malcolm Gladwell's book Blink : The Power of Thinking Without Thinking perhaps you'll be convinced. However, it wasn't the book that convinced me. The book only reinforced wh...

    Aim for the moon!

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 19 Jan '15, 10am

    I went ice skating today. I'm planning to learn skiing at the end of this month after my business trip. I think I would be able to learn faster if I'm comfortable on ice. I've not stepped into the rink for 20 years! I wasn't much good at it back but much better than I am today. My fri...

    Would you claim $5 for your phone bill if you earned $20k a month?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 06 Jun '14, 1pm

    "If I earned $20,000 a month, I wouldn't claim $5 for my phone bill," said my friend when he accidentally found out that his colleague (whom he guessed earns a higher salary than him) submitted a claim for that amount. He thinks it costs way more than $5 in effort to process the claim...

    My self-designed standing desk

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 02 Jun '14, 10am

    I'd been checking out desks for standing but none of them were good enough. Inspired by some articles on the internet, I decided to put together my own standing desk. It took me only 5 mins because I had the necessary "equipment" already: my printer/scanner and an adjustable laptop st...

  • Hi, I'm alive! Are you still there?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 01 Jun '14, 3pm

    1. Work has been hectic. My team members have been on leave so I have to take over their duties. Working vs blogging: whichever makes me more money wins. 2. I've been addicted to reading. I've read 32 books this year. Murder mysteries are my favourite genre for now. Award-winning lite...

    Shenzhen: 15-16 January 2014

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 09 Feb '14, 6am

    I had a last-minute requirement to go to Shenzhen, China. I knew about it and made the arrangements for it only 1 day before flying. There weren't many choices of flights. There were only flights that were "business" timings, i.e. early morning flights out and the evening flights back...

  • People who dislike shopping are anti-social

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 04 Feb '14, 1pm

    I enjoy meeting my gal friend for dinner or tea but I dislike the part when she suggests that we "walk around", i.e. go shopping. Having no real need to expand my wardrobe, especially not with expensive clothes in Singapore, going shopping here seems to be a waste of time for me. Once...

    Is there any point with keeping in contact as "friends only" with an ex-lover?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 02 Feb '14, 6am

    I'm not referring to the friends-with-benefits type of friend. Is it possible for anyone to be "just friends" with an ex-lover? (Excluding ex's whom you have children with because couples may remain friends for the sake of their children). I was in contact with a few (either I contact...

    The most meaningful birthday wishes are found in prayers

    When my family gathered around the table for my sister's birthday dinner, my mum asked my dad to say a prayer before the meal. My dad said the usual "thank you, God, for the food and bless us all who are gathered here". We were hungry and couldn't wait to start eating. When he said "A...

    What's the use of reading?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 20 Jan '14, 1pm

    Some people say that reading is a form of escaping one's life. I hardly see it that way because I love my life. But what's the use of all that knowledge obtained from books if it does not lead to any sort of action? I constantly struggle to find a good reason to "allow" myself to read...

    You can retire when you have a fully-paid house and 25x your annual spend in savings

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 19 Jan '14, 1pm

    I read an article about a man who retired when he was 30 years old. His wife also retired with him and they have a son. He claims that the one secret to their success is their low expenses of US$25,000 a year for a family of 3. [How to retire early — 35 years early ] He said that he a...

    What NOT to write in your online profile

    January is the boom month for online dating, according to an article by BBC news magazine . Perhaps people broke up during the stressful year-end celebrations or they are looking for someone to spend Valentine's day with. The Asians who celebrate the lunar new year are probably in a h...

    A large portion of the Bukit Brown Cemetery is going to disappear to make way for a new road. After seeing the pictures and reading about the people who were buried there (http://bukitbrown.com ), I was interested to take a first and last look at this graveyard. It was easy getting th...

    Over 30 and still living with parents?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 10 Jan '14, 1pm

    What do you think of people who are over 30 years old and still live with their parents? I think they are big babies. They must be very dependent on their parents and/or cannot afford to move out. (Housing is expensive in Singapore so it's understandable why adults live with their par...

    Would you believe anything a prostitute says?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 06 Jan '14, 2pm

    Although it seems like a rhetorical question, many guys do believe the sweet words through a prostitute's lips. A friend of mine happened to be at Geylang (a red light district in Singapore). The streetwalkers called out to him, saying how handsome he was. "It would be her gain," my m...

    Would you introduce a prostitute to your friend as a potential life partner?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 05 Jan '14, 1pm

    Many years ago, a friend Mr X introduced me to his single friend Mr Y. X said that Y spent too much time at work and wasn't going out enough. Mr Y was gentlemanly but no sparks flew between us. Later on, Mr X told me that Mr Y uses the services of prostitutes. I was shocked! Not shock...

    What's the most pathetic thing to do after getting rejected?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 04 Jan '14, 2pm

    An acquaintance of mine was looking for an extramarital affair. I knew it because he tried to start one with me. When that failed, he tried asking me (by SMS) whether my friend (whom he had never met nor seen her photo) would be interested. "No, she won't be interested," I wrote. "Did...

    How to find the right path?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 29 Dec '13, 6am

    In success stories, once piece of "advice" I often hear is to do things which we feel passionate about. While it may work for people who have the right combination of passion and luck, for the everyone else it's just highly impractical advice. 4 years ago, I wrote in my blog that I qu...
