朋友、同事与我都有着多多少少的距离,不论是与自己的性格如何相同,总是有一点点抗拒感,或许这就是所谓的 “距离是美” 吧。



也许是我一直喜欢 “君子之交淡如水” 的感觉吧,可能就因此而难寻一知己。但人与人之间的距离是必须的,至少我认为如此。

Argument Over A Small Matter

lim peh ka li kong

Last night, my 2 buddy Ah Huat and Ah Seng came to my place and chit chat and suddenly Ah Huat popped a question to us and we had a good time arguing discussing over it.

How can we differentiate people? Don´t play play hor, this topic very difficult one you know, U grads also cannot answer properly one.

After much argument discussion with vulgar wisdom words flying around, we still did not have the answer. Since we Lau Ah Bengs cannot have a satisfactory answer, any smart alec guy / gal out there boleh (can) contribute?

Ah Huat : Easy la, people can be categorised as Man and Woman with obvious reason of course.

Ah Seng : Also can divide by Old and Young.

Old Beng : Also can Fat and Thin.

Ah Huat : Tall and Short boleh also.

Ah Seng : Good looking and Ugly.

Old Beng : Dogs lovers and Cats lovers.

Ah Huat : Rich and Poor.

Ah Seng : Staying in HDB and Landed.

Old Beng : Married and Single.

Ah Huat : Got Car or No Car.

Ah Seng : You gila or what! I got 2 kar also can count or not (pointing to his 2 legs).

Ah Huat : You not gila meh? HDB or Landed!

Ah Seng : Yeah what. How can differentiate by got Car or not? Those got motorbike or van or bicycle one, where to put them? Seow!!!

Ah Huat : Then your one very good meh? HDB or Landed? Those no own a house one how? Rental only leh? Condo leh? Seow-Ding-Tong.

Old Beng : Oei, don´t quarrel la children...

Ah Seng : What!! You think you got write blog very smart is it? Your toopid Dogs and Cats lovers way? More seow only!!! How about those not love Dogs nor Cats, love birdie can not can? Love tortoise can not can?

Ah Huat : Yeah lor, some more think of Fat and Thin. Those not Fat not Thin one how? Really bo-liao la you.

Old Beng : You leh? Very smart is it? Tall and Short? Those not Tall also not Short one how? Ah Seng, you don´t laugh ok, your idea of Old and Young also ka-na-sia one, those not old not young one how?

Ah Seng : You leh Lao Ah Beng, your Married and Single not ka-na-sia la. Those married already divorced one how? Those not married but stay together one how?

Ah Huat : Hello you Lau Ah Seng, your Good looking and Ulgy also sibeh jia-lat ok. Those average looking one how?

Old Beng : Oei, your Rich and Poor also soo-ku one la, those not rich not poor one how?

Ah Seng : Yeah lor, your Man and Woman also rubbish one la, those not Man not Woman how?

And our heated argument discussion went on and on until finally we heard a ROAR and all 3 of us kept our mouths shut immediately.

Me think if without that "ROAR" we 3 goondoos would have argued until the cows go home also won´t stop.

我一直都认为个人的身体语言 (Body Language )是很重要的。老人家一直强调人要 “坐有坐相、吃有吃相”。

一个人一天大概会吃早、午、晚三餐吧。当然有些人会如我一般吃上四五餐,这不是贪吃,而是 “能吃就是福”。


另外有些人吃东西总会张开狮口大嘴,狼吞虎咽,仿佛吃慢一点便会输给人似的。我最怕和那些吃东西时,嘴里传来 “嗒嗒”的恐怖声的人同桌吃饭。






那小姐反应出奇的快,只见她举起另一只白嫩的手,以手背往下巴一抹,马上污迹消失,比 Dynamo “特力沫”还快!

10 Signs The Driver Is Probably Not A Man

lim peh ka li kong

Before going into the 10 signs, please ask yourself this question: Have you ever met with a lousy driver and automatically in you mind came this assumption, "Must be a cha-bo (female) driver".

To be frank, although will 得罪女人, offend the ladies, many times when me met with a lousy driver, me will immediately, inevitably assumed that the driver is definitely a female and Bingo, 9 out of 10 times I am correct.

Not only male drivers like me assume so, some stylo-milo female drivers will also assume so if they meet with such lousy female drivers.

Me do not deny that there are some good, gooder and goodest female drivers around, maybe 1 out of 10, majorities are in fact quite kayu one la. (My cha-bo-lang also agrees that many female drivers really cannot make it one.)

My cha-bo-lang´s driving skill?

No horse run!!

I can only tell you that she thinks that her Proton is a Porsche and drives like one, fast bo? She is one hell driver - fast, faster, fastest. (Understand Monkichi is also a very fast and darling... eh I mean daring driver but only hearsay, have not any chance to be driven by her yet.)

So my point is, there are many female drivers out there driving along with us and the followings are facts so welcome to agree or argue and leave your comments.

Here we go:

10 signs you know the driver is probably not a man.

1) The car goes in and out, in and out, in and out of the parking lot, trying very hard to get a proper parking. (Be it a reverse or parellel parking).

2) Standing beside the car with a flat tyre waiting for some nice guy to help to change the tyre.

3) 5 seconds after the traffic light turns "green" and still in stationary position and only engages driving gear after the cars behind sound their honks.

4) Drving at 70 km/h or less while travelling at extreme right lane on Express Way.

5) Extremely slow cautious driver, whether driving on a straight road or a bend.

6) Driving out from a small lane into the major lane will take ages and ages and good luck if you are behind the car.

7) Dont know how to pump petrol at petrol koisks, must need the kiosk uncles to help.

8) There are many many many cutie soft toys in the car as decoration.

9) The driver is wearing a long sleeve shirt (but worn the other way round to cover the exposed area of the arms from the hot sun) and a pair of gloves.

10) While stationary at the traffic light, the distance from the car in front is as far as a car´s length or even more.

Oosh, before anyone starts throwing rotten eggs at old beng, me just stating some observed facts only.

踏入社会工作,才明白赚钱的困难,每天得七早八早起身,然后把整个人整副心投入工作。如此这般 “卖身” 卖了三十天,才得到那一点点的薪水。


现在到处都是卡的世界:信用卡和 “NETS” 卡,MRT 卡等等。看来不久后,钱将肯定会被卡取代。







WHAT TO DO?这个社会就是这么现实!

¼ 世纪的我


一个人能有多少个25 年?数来数去,最多也只是三个半。


只一瞬间,便已达 ¼ 世纪的年龄,快的令人来不及去迎接它的降临。岁月的流逝对每个人都是公平的,不管你愿意与否,都无法抗拒它。




快乐无忧的童年已逝,织梦的年龄也早已过,事业上的冲刺已逐渐被磨谈了;踏入25 岁的我已不再奢求什么。该有的都已拥有过,不该有的又何必去追求呢?






第一个 ¼ 世纪的我做不到与世无争,也许必须等到第二个 ¼ 世纪才能真正凡事都放得开,如果活了半个世纪还是和现在一样,那真是彻底的失败。

活了这些年,回头一看才发现根本没真正拥有过什么。25 年只换来一些微不足道的人生经验,代价太贵,但又能怎样?经验根本不是能用钱财买的,只能以时间去换取。

25 岁的我到底是年青还是年老?我不晓得。

25 岁肯定不再属于年轻的岁月,但也还没步入年老阶段。

25 岁只是很普通的 ¼ 世纪。





2006 后语 :

我想每个人都会经历过这样的阶段 :


重读 25 岁写的这篇文章,才知晓自己当时真的“为赋新词强说愁”。。。
