Old Uncle´s Nags

lim peh ka li kong

I will be 43 come tomorrow. A middle-aged man. An old uncle.

Why am I still writing nonsensical articles in this stupid blog of mine?

Why do I bother to write the self-proclaimed funny jokes?

On the eve of my birthday, I have doubts in blogging anymore.

lim peh kong wan liao

    Hi Old Beng,

    Hi OB, =p

    I have been through this a couple of times, and almost stopped blogging once.

    However, fact of the matter is, I am still here, although significantly less active than before.

    Hope that you will continue blogging. =)

    Dear Uncle Beng,

    happy birthday. but i must say that your maths is entirely incorrect.

    we all know 1 + 1 = 2 right?

    but for age, this is how you add up.

    Current Age = (Current Year - Year Born - 21)/2 + 21.

    so therefore you are only 32 y/o. too young ah!

    blogging is for the same reason - perhaps sometimes, we feel a bit lonely, or just (in my case definately) need an outlet for anger, stress, sorrow and perhaps, just a cyber punching bag.

    it is when you get those little comments, its like that, sometimes, we dont feel some much like living on an island (excluding Singapore hehe), also to swap some doraemon collectable, but mainly for the above paragraph.

  • At Sunday, December 09, 2007 1:08:00 PM , Blogger imnothere said...

    joking aside, i seriously, provide using common sense and moderation, that blogging is bad or complete waste of time. when is the last time that you sat down, write an essay/letter and contemplate what you did and what you should have done? since high school, we only wrote just enough to get the grades from the teacher or for work. therefore blogging, in a sense, is a kind of self-moderating/improving of own's character and behavior. although sadly that many people just don't write (in diary) and type rubbish on blog.

    i guess i better finish while i can. i am getting long winded year-by-year!

    happy belated bird-day!!!

    DON'T ever stop blogging! juz discovered your blog not long ago... n managed to intro some more frens. haven't claim advertising fee fr u... so dun run away yet! haha.

    anyway, seriously, the final decision is yours alone. whatever u decided at the end, i'm sure all your devoted readers will respect it. :)


  • At Tuesday, December 11, 2007 11:00:00 PM , Blogger Whiskoffee said...

    Haha! This is a blog lifecycle thingy.

    Blogs frequently survive for 2 years (or it may be longer) and at the end of this tenure, the blogger tends to either decide to stop blogging altogether or start a new blog elsewhere while leaving the old one intact or deleted.

    Bloggers start to wonder if the blogs they like so much are really serving whatever conscious or subconscious purposes which they are intended to serve.

    The responses from others (bloggers and non bloggers alike) can influence his mindset as well. I for one blog lesser now than before about people around me for obvious reasons.

    I have survived a couple of end-the-blog crises. Hope to see you pull thru too. =)

    Kam siah you. Remember to share your new url should you start blogging again.

  • At Thursday, January 03, 2008 12:46:00 AM , Blogger Ang Ku Kueh said...


    I have doubts about blogging all the time! and i dun even write as much as you! think about blogging like blood's voluntary, you dun have to do it, sometimes you dun even know if the blood u give will help or will get thrown away after expiry, but hey, when you finally drag yourself through all the trouble and pain, it feels all right. and the puncture scar reminds you that you are dedicated at least to the endeavor, however lax a donor you are.

    Oh yes, I need to make this point: you really never know if you gave someone comfort or help. I myself cheer up immensely with your entries. even my cheena improved abit from reading you.

    analogy aside, it's good to read back what you wrote sometimes. its amazing how much you'll learn abt yourself over time.

  • At Thursday, March 06, 2008 12:11:00 PM , Blogger Old Beng said...

    Thanks for your encouragement and yes you are right. Everytime lim peh read back my old entries, they really keep me thinking and pondering.

    Hi Beng, this is the first time I read your blog and really enjoy it. It is very resourceful and I can find my childhood feeling here, like fighting spider, catching longkang fish etc..more than 40 liao but these scence still in my mind. Thankyou Beng to bring them back to me again....

    Hello. Thanks for dropping by and read my posts.
