[About this blog] Inspired by local soccer player Mike Lim during my rookie reporter days at Singapore Polytechnic, I set up this blog in August 2002. I feel that blogging is a novel platform to document interesting facets of my life and my thoughts on certain issues. [Email blogger] ephraim@singnet.com.sg

[what good is a heart]
I told you how I felt
I told you what it meant
But I still haven't changed your mind

I know that you're afraid,
You're frightened of the pain
But you can let down your guard

Cause when we run, we hide
We deny what's inside

Chorus
What good is a heart, if you're not gonna use it?
What good is your love, if you're too scared to choose it?
If your heart is beating, then it's for a reason
If you're not even willing to start, what good is a heart?

Don't make the same mistake that people often make
And miss out on a chance for love

You've got to make your move, you've got to make it soon
Cuz you're dying inside

Cuz I'm a man, but I cry
I have fears, I won't lie

Chorus

Come on baby, you know it
Girl anyone who looks can see that I'm right

There's a chance, we should take it
Or regret it for the rest of our lives

Chorus

This is what he came up with...... "1 day I go 2 climb up a 3 outside a house to peep. After I saw couple, couple saw me, so I panic and 4 down. The man rush out and wanted to 5 with me but I run until I 6 and throw up. I chabot into 7-eleven to hide and grab some 8 to throw at him. Then I get 9 and try to stab him. And 10 hor ... 10 hor ... he die lor.

have been spending the past few days rehearsing for a skit for some smoke-free day campaign.... it's supposed to deter people from smoking but it's kindof comical too...

here's a brief outline of what took place the past few days...

tuesday - read the script and rehearsed the lines and tried on clothes..

wednesday - ran through entire script with actions... added in some details and ideas... also did a full dress rehearsal...

thursday - finalised some additional scenes... filmed the whole skit...

[friends]
Friends are people in your life
You can never run from and hide
For they hear you speak every night
And they listen to your plight
Any problems you can share
For they will always care and be there
Cheer you up when you are sad
Calm you down when you turn mad
They give you many good suggestions
Provide you with lots of love and attention
Help you solve your problems
Spur you on with their encouragement
Never will they leave you aside
For in their hearts they have you inside
They'll be by your side when you need them
You can count on them till the very end
Having them is a pleasure
So keep them close, just like treasure!

This poem was written to commemorate my friendship with someone special... Sounds nice huh?

[funny sia]
here's an email from aaron... it's so funny man!

Woman who goes to man's apartment for snack, gets titbit.
Man who lay woman on ground, get peace on earth.
Man who gets kicked in testicles, left holding the bag.
Man who kisses girl's behind, gets crack in face.
Passionate kiss like spider web-lead to undoing of fly.
Man with holes in pocket, feels cocky all day.
Man who fight with wife all day, get no piece at night.
Virginity like balloon-one prick, all gone.
Girl who rides bicycle, peddles ass all over town.
He who farts in church, sits in own pew.
Baseball all wrong-man with four balls can't walk.
Man who live in glass house, dress in basement.
Kotex not best thing on earth, but next to best thing.
Man who walk through airport door sideways is going to Bangkok.
Man who drop watch in toilet, bound to have shitty time.
Man who take lady on camping trip, have one intent.
Man who go to bed with sex on mind wake up with solution in hand.
Man with one chopstick go hungry.
Crowded elevator smell different to midget.
Man at closing time know that beauty is only a light switch away.
Last man and Last woman on earth can do it in public.
Man who drive like hell, bound to get there.
A bird in hand makes hard to blow nose.
He who eats too many prunes, sits on toilet many moons.
Ok for shit to happen . . . will decompose.
Don't drink and park, accidents cause people.
Never raise hands to angry child, it leave groin exposed.
Man who keep feet firmly on ground have trouble putting on pants!
Man who marries a girl with no bust has right to feel low down.
Man and mouse alike, both end up in pussy.
Man who have hand in pocket not just jingling change.
Man who have hand in pockets, not crazy, just feeling nuts.
Man who go to bed with itchy bum wake up with smelly finger.

*winks*

[way too cool]
got bowled over last night at bugis... caught x-men 2... the show was great and i was literally transported into the world of mutants.... loved the special effects, the characters and the story... i'd say bring on x-men 3 anytime!


just look at iceman and that's a gauge on how cool this installment of x-men is....


storm, wolverine, mystique, cyclops, jean grey, magneto, rogue and other mutants join in the show...
