Friends

lim peh ka li kong

In our hectic and fast moving society today, true friends have never been easy to find; Having a true friend may, due to our daily chores and working lives, then drift apart and gradually become not as close as we used to be.

When we were in our schooldays, we had some very close-friends and we may even have vowed to be friends forever.

I can proudly say, "Yeah, I still have 2 very close friends (we have known one another since our day one in our primary one class - a long 33 years till today) whereby we will meet once in every few months.

In my mind, I always think that friends are easy to make but true friends are hard to come by.

Then, by accident I stumbled into Yahoo Message Boards without the slightest idea what YMB is all about.

Reading the threads; Seeing the angry arguments; Shake my head with a saddened heart - Singaporeans!?!

After a short period of less than 2 months, through the communication via YMB, I made many friends, although in this cyberspace, all are faceless : Gender? Age? Size? Race? Nationalilty? Professional? But I know I have made many friends though they, like old beng, have no idea who I am in actual life but cyberly speaking, we are friends and that brings out a smile from my heart.

    Mr Lim, it's ok.You don't have to tone down. I like it this way.But I do wish if you could translate chinese characters to english ones if it's not too much of a hassle for you. Thank you.

    Those Chinese Characters were some poems and issues which I wrote and were published in newspaper and
    magazines some 15 years ago.

    ha ha you are absolutely right on my old age. Like the Chinese say:
    "Man at 40 is like a dragon"

    Woei! handsome old uncle beng and qin die emperor,
    la kopi is a trademark and intellectual property of 666. Patented and all right reserved.
    Your usage of la kopi is a violation under IP act section 17 para 4.1.1
    See u in court!

    la kopi

    btw we can settle out of court.

    lau qin

    after we let her go the last time without suing her, she is now intending to sue us back, me very scared so I intend to settle with her outside the court.

    Oei Angeling7030

    I very scared when I read your comment but yes I will be more than happy to settle out of court with a kopi-O and maybe a prata.

    If you still not happy, we will see you in the court, er...I mean badminton court or tennis court or any Courts (within the premise of Spore but no we will not be buying any furniture).

    Angel mei mei,

    Sue me for violating IP act section 17 para 4.1.1? Let me engage the long nick first.

    Why are you cursing me? I will counter-sue you for violating Mischievous act section 69 para 6.6.6.

    Or do you want to settle out of court? I don't like Badminton court, me Bed-Me-Turn.

    Beng/Qin, I tried to warn you guys about this ChioBoo, La Kopi-O, Laksa Mei (have to use variation of her patented trademark to avoid being sued)
    Before I became her ex, she was sueing me left & rite, back & front and she didn't stop suiting even after my pants dropped.
