    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...

    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?

    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...

    Today's the 5th anniversary of my blog! I don't write as often as before and I certainly have fewer readers than before (it's totally my fault, of course). Some of you may think it's because I'm having "writer's block" while others may think that like all things, some blogs die a natu...

    - 25 is the age to get married. - 30 is the age to have children because after that you'll start to have fertility problems. - If you are over 30, unmarried and have no children, you'd better hurry because the doctors advise you to hurry up if you ever want to have kids and 35 is the ...
