At last!

Some good news just dropped in my Inbox today. Here’s a clue: Where I’ll work in the very near future. After almost 5 months of interviewing, taking tests, negotiating and waiting, waiting and more waiting (up to the point of hair-pulling frustration)… the contract’s finally been drafted and all I have to do is sign […]

Taiwan funnies

This is so funny. Outside the LiuZhangLi station is this poster inviting young men to enlist in the army: First thought that popped to mind was: “Omigosh, that just looks sooooooo gay.” Imagine, surrounding the poster are men standing in attention under the blazing sun, guys in army gear and punishing themselves on the obstacles, […]

“How do you know someone, or something is worth fighting for?”

Reeyuh has asked the question, “How do you know someone, or something is worth fighting for?” That actually made me think… And think… And think some more. Yes, how do I know? Now the answer I may give right now may sound very simplistic to you. Maybe it’s because I’m not completely in love right […]

It’s raining men! Hallelujah!!!

I really can’t figure it out. You guys know that I’ve always been busy, and in the past few months, have been bummed out about my dire romantic prospects. I’ve cried over my ex, mulled over dateless evenings (although I’ve always kept myself occupied with other activities, never a boring day for me) and was […]

Near-death rock climbing weekend

I’ve come to realize just how dangerous rock climbing can actually be. Although it’s totally fun and addictive, there’s still NO guarantees that it’s 100% safe, and despite what manufacturers say, sh*t does happen — and people do die. Behold, our busted carabiner: All throughout Saturday, we kept on repeating, “I’ve always heard of people […]

RR: The Diner

Time runs fast and it’s time for another restaurant review (RR). This time, my review ain’t about upscale, classy restaurants. Instead, it’s for people seeking for a cozy, comfortable place to have brunch or dinner either with their significant others or families. So if you’re tired of Carnegies, Dan Ryan’s or Grandma Nittis, here’s another […]

Who pays?

My friends and I are having this active debate right now. The topic was: “On a date, who usually pays?” This question was derived from my conversation with CL the other night. We were talking about mundane things, when the topic veered towards dating. “When I’m on a date, the girl and I usually go […]

Why do men treat women like crap?

My answer: “Because we let them.“ I have a theory. My theory is, “Guys only mistreat women because we let them.“ How many times does it happen when women call their girlfriends bawling, complaining that their significant other is a total *sshole? And they meet for a b*tch session, and enumerate all the reasons why […]

An Ode to my Guy Best Friend

It’s always nice to have girl best friends… When girl best friends get together, we like to b*tch about life (e.g., “So how’s your love life?”), make excuses for our men (e.g., “Maybe he’s just busy?“) or curse them for shattering our hearts to itsy-bitsy pieces (e.g., “He’s an asshole and is totally not worth […]
