For many of you 31st Aug 1992 is just another day in the last century. Not for me, it was my first day in hostel. Yes it that long time ago. Those who are mathematically challenged it’s more than 23 and half years.
It must have been too much for any 9 year old. (Yes, yours truly was only 9 years old when I went to hostel). There was precedent already set with my elder sister and brother both going to hostel at a very young age before me. So I was mentally ready. But what about my parents? Were they ready? If they have sent two of their kids to hostel they must be ready to send the youngest one too. I digress.
Let me explain. Assume you have 3 fruits (or any item you love to eat. It doesn’t matter).
Scenario 1 -> If you to give one of the fruit (or the item of your choice) to some one else. You may be reluctant but you may share.
Scenario 2 -> What if someone extort two of the fruits(again assume the item) from you. You will be heart broken but have to part with 2 of the items. Because you are still left one of the fruits(just assume your favorite item, don’t make me repeat)
Scenario 3 -> But if you have to give up all three of fruits because they will become better fruits in foreseeable future. Will be ready to give away all the fruits (still? Even after missing last one). Remember these are your favourite and you would like to keep at least one of them with you.
Now replace fruits with your own kids and think of the scenario 3. Yeah the same feeling. For any parent having an empty house is the last thing they will want. And mine had the same for last 23 and half years. An empty house..
For those who are thinking why am I writing this, is because I am leaving my wife and 7days baby (yeah 1week old) with my parents and going back to Hong Kong. This really breaks my heart and I can’t do anything. Now that I know what is the pain of being separated from your kid, I can only assume how much pain my parents have felt.
Its been exactly one year and I have not updated this page. The last time it was to wish you guys a new year. Looks like this time it’s for the same reason.
Wishing you all readers a happy new year 2013. Seems like the mayan calendar had a bug and no one bothered to fix it. Jokes apart, the reason for this post is my friends. I saw my blog open on one of friend’s computer screen, and I asked why is this open? His answer I love this site, why don’t you write more? So this post goes to you.
Speaking of friends, there are different type of friends, some are casual, some fast, so best and some no string attached ( if you know what it means *wink* *wink*). I have my share of friends and its the friends which makes a person. I was blessed with friends with who I learnt some valuable lesson of life, about girl, about birds and bees ( and world thinks its the parents who have a give a talk about this)
Birds and bees remind me of two thing courtship and marriage. A quick poll how many of you hated it when your roommate, colleague, flatmate keeps of yakking all night of phone and all you can do is watch. I had my fair share of the same. sometimes it was me who hated my friends on the phone and sometimes the roles reversed.
There are different roles one plays in their life, from a supporter to an arch rival, from a lover to a enemy, from a friend to a foe, from a shoulder to cry on to a elbow jab which make you cry. But one role is played by all of us and that is of a peer.
Peers lead to something called peer pressure. For those who don’t know what this thing is let me given you some hint. It is because of this you bought that new phone/iPod/ Car/ Home or you went to that play/ outing/ joint/ disco/ bar because all your friends are doing and you don’t want to stay behind in the rat race.
I am running a rat race of my self, in fact there are two of them. One is to earn more, and other is get my brother married so that I can also get married because all the cool guys are doing it. 🙂
First of all happy new year to all of you. I know I am late but what can you expect from a person who had written just 5 post in the last year.
Now coming back to the topic at hand it had got a single question but it can be used whenever you are bout to take an action. Let’s assume it’s calling ur girl friend everyday. Which reminds me I am still looking for one. And one day u two have fight. Now u are faced with the immortal question should I shouldn’t I? The above situation is purely hypothetical but there are many real life scenario where you should always ask your self should I shouldn’t I?
The said phrase is for those think twice before taking action. The kind who want to play it safe. Now for those who like to live on the edge here is new mantra for you I could and I would.
Here are the advantage of the above theory. Assuming you love someone and don’t have the courage then if you use the first theory you may have see her date and later marry someone else. But if you there are chances that you will be turned and humiliated so bad that you may not face your self.
So when it come to uncertain times first ask should I or shouldn’t I if you don’t get a answer go and ask some one else.
New year has come and gone and its the month of Feb. The month of wishes. Its to wish the two people in life whom i wish “Happy Birthday” again. I am not sure if i can continue this tradition but i will try. But its time to wish “Happy Birthday Dear.”
Another News to add is that i just met with an accident. it was on the main road at 5 in the morning with the motor bike that my friend was driving. As it turns out there was no vehicle coming from behind else you wont be seeing this post but our obituary in the paper.
