“When naked, everybody’s just the same.”~ Raven when working out in the Alexander gym last night So to people who think they’re better than others just because they have more money, you’re wrong. You also have the same flabs / defects / stretch marks / fat just like anybody else.
Today, I’ve been accused of being one of the many girls in Taiwan on a boyfriend hunt. I can’t help but smile, but inside I was dying laughing. Okay, sure I am at current, still single. For some reason as well, most of my friends are unfortunately men, so on almost every social occasion, people […]
If you were to write a personal ad, how would yours read? Mine would be: Seeking a “nice” normal man who has confidence and substance. This attractive, 168 cm, Chinese native English speaker in her mid-20s is fit (yes, I’ve been called sexy), emotionally healthy, mentally capable, and has a great smile. Apart from reading, […]
My job requires me to be on the phone the whole day. From morning to evening, my phone constantly rings and I get to talk to drivers, travel agents, CFOs, directors, spokesmen, their secretaries and sometimes, even company presidents. However, as I sit on the research department, the room’s more like a library with a […]
Don’t you think that life sometimes feel like a speeding bullet train that can’t stop even if you wanted to? These past couple of weeks, I’ve felt as if I haven’t had time for myself, much alone to breathe. My life has become a cycle of routines and I feel like a hamster running around […]
Sometimes, I wonder, am I too impractical for my own good? It still never fails to surprise me when people here tell me that their choices in life are based on practicality. For example, they study a course because it makes more money instead of pursuing a dream that’s likely to leave them starving and […]
Sometimes, we look at a guy and his woman and immediately, a thought pops into your mind — What the heck are you thinking? It’s not that she’s butt ugly (’cause that’s another story), but frankly speaking, there’s nothing in the upper regions ‘cept for blue skies and butterflies. In other words, nice face/body… But […]

According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, pride is: 1 : the quality or state of being proud: as a : inordinate self-esteem : conceit b : a reasonable or justifiable self-respect c : delight or elation arising from some act, possession, or relationship pride 2 : […]
Raven’s been really baaaaaad… It all started innocently enough: a few thousand NTDs in cash, some Sogo gift vouchers and by the end of the day, I was again penniless and poor. Thank god BK treated me to a nice pai-ku (pork chop) dinner otherwise I’d be starving! Haha, I feel more like a Taiwanese […]
… And am still in the office! Wow, my friend was right — my company changed my life — literally! Now, I have no life. 🙁 What’s worse, am working on a project that doesn’t really make us the extremely big $$$, and I know it. But that’s how work ethics are: The moment you […]
…He opens a window. Last night, I had a slated date with my friend CW, who unfortunately forgot his standing appointment. After emailing him asking about it, he wrote back: “SHIT. Arrrrgh, sorry! I completely forgot. There was a note on my desk that said “T Thur” and I couldn’t figure it out … I […]
People usually think that we’re biased against handicapped, homosexual or untaboo groups of people. If you think about it, we’re really not. Case in point, in a recent diversity training, the speaker encourages increasing diversity in the workplace. This means that they want to have more of a mix of various racial groups, people with […]
