My Laws of Attraction
AshleyJo - 22 hours ago
Contrary to the assumptions of even those close to me, physical attributes are not part of my laws of attraction. I'm not as shallow as i'm being thought of and despite being a higly visual person, what's beneath the surface are truly the things that attract and endear me to someone.
A person with Positive Vibes is a big winner in getting (and retaining) my attention. She would be one who is able to see beauty & goodness in ppl and situations, with the ability to motivate the ppl with whom she interacts. It's hard not to be attracted to someone who is a Motivator because of her positive outlook. I like someone who has as much faith as me in the humankind.
Being Compassionate aligns the person with me on one of my highly-regarded values. Being loved by someone with compassion endears my heart to her and makees me want to love her without restraint because her big heart of kindness so deserves it. I find it very enticing to date someone like that, someone who can feel for strangers because of their plight, be it sickness or poverty.
Sensitivity is a virtue which i find alluring because someone who has an acute sense of emotive awareness for others makes me feel pampered and taken care of. It gives my heart a tenderness that would only serve to do away caution and enable me to trust her with my feelings.
I have low tolerance for insincere ppl. Which conversely makes Sincerity in a person highly appealing to me.
The last Law may seem surprising considering its apparent insignificance to most ppl. Politeness. I really appreciate someone who is polite because rude ppl are my No.1 turn-off. A polite person by nature is also someone who will respect her partner and show appreciation more likely than not.
That much said, Laws are not cast in stone. Life is a mystery. So is Love.

Why do I like you
oudtshoorn - 1 day ago
Why do I like you? I don't have an answer for that, but I guess it's just the vibes you gave me, the smiles you put on my face, the laughs I get from talking to you, and just the fact that you can make me think of you even if we are not talking at that moment. I honestly cannot say that there's an answer for that, but I will say that you are the only reason that I am happy each and every day.
A short story - Part V

What happened to a friend.
Roku - 1 day ago
181214 - the flyoff.
This morning, this idiot woke up at 6.30am and dashed off to the airport. He reaches the airport at an hour later but still cannot find Minmin anyway. He sat down and waited till 10plus before going to order the food for X'mas. He had a good laugh on himself while relating to the dramas he watched.
He is glad that until now Minmin is texting him to chat about HK and share some toy finds.
171214 - Dim Sum dollies, oh no....
He texted to call off Dim Sum Dollies, I had a good day finishing up chores and preparing for next year's work.
Asked him whether I can join him for breakfast before he fly off but he reminded me that we are no longer a couple.
Well... my love for you is real. That is enough. So long, you don't shut me down.
161214 My virgin cookoff - Penguin bento
Had a late lunch that day when my inner voice decide to have a cook off. I was unsure at first because I am not sure whether Minmin is coming for pump that night. I follow my heart anyway.
While waiting for the rice to cool off, as I was displaying Chunli (nanoblock) into my chiller, her foot fell into the crevices. To my horror, it has worms, eggs, spiders and flying insects. On top of the creepy crawlies, it is feeled with some rotten crust of food. I managed to overcome my fear and clean it off.
Rushed off to finish the penguin look and glad I did.
After pump, we chatted and teased about the bonus and HK trip. He gave everyone muffins, generous as usual, and I wasn't expecting one as he wasn't passing it to me to choose, when I walked him, he gave me one and I asked for another one knowing that I can save 2 days of breakfast since my bonus took some time.
Before I alight, I passed him the bento set I made and told him it was my first time. Yes I made it with love. I didn't expect him to try it but he told me he did, even though he didn't finish everything. I even have to use the seaweed he bought from his BKK trip for the bento. It is just an ordinary lunch box with 2 lumps of rice made to look like penguin. But it has all my love and effort in it.
He thinks they looked like penguins and I think my job's done. Thank you for trying.
151214 The Exodus and iPhone 6.
We went AMK Hub yesterday and what luck, 128GB iPhone 6 in Gold. That's what Minmin likes (actually we both liked black but after awhile he decided to take Gold). However, it is closing hours for Singtel. So, I asked him whether I can keep him company while queuing for the iPhone 6 tomorrow. He agreed.
So as usual, he grumbled abit when I was on my way because of the queue. We sat relaxingly playing tsum tsum at a nearby coffeeshop watching the queue number's increment. I enjoyed watching him. He is so cute when he is playing game. I forgotten that.
We managed to get Minmin's account switched as main from his mom. Of course, he got the phone.
Went to have dessert and helped him unwrapped his iPhone 6, put on tempered glass and lend him my silicon cover. Oh boy, he is a happy man now.
I thought that's the end of the meet up. Surprisingly, he agreed to go for a movie. So we watched Exodus. Quite an impressive show about inner voices and science. Less of the Almighty God magic and miracles. We thought that Ed will join us but he didn't so I got ourselves couple seats - ting ting ting... yes couple seats. I pretended to be holding his hands throughout the show. Yes, I'm a dreamer.
We walked around Orchard until around 7pm where he left for RPM. I continued to look for his shoes. Then I went home. I texted him about the Fujikoh's robot featuring Doraemon. Hopefully, one day I can help to assemble the robot.
Finally completed the assembly part of his birthday present. That means I can trim my nails. I continued to finish Chunli, the nanoblock he bought for me.
141214 The voice
The little voice spoke again and this time I heard him. Quickly I texted Minmin saying that I'm joining RPM class. I quickly prepared. Don't ask me why. I'm glad I did. Minmin was alone in class that day. I was there almost late. He was already cycling and warming up his body. I wanted to take the bike beside his but was told by him that it is spoilt, so I took the one behind him. Was kinda lost on setting up and lucky the kind angel (I know it is part of his job) , CH, came to the rescue. Talked about a cardio rush. I enjoyed it very much if not for the fact that I'm reserving energy for pump later.
Ate Red Mango, sat with him, joked with the company. Had an enjoyable pump with his exchanging glances with Ian and me (mine was secretive glances until he decides to show off his weights). Asked him his plans after pump and this time round he said, "oh I am having dinner with Ian and bf, you can join us if you want to." I was happy, it was the first time after what happened, I am included.
Poor Ian drove a long way to Orchard then to Macpherson and then back to Chinatown again. He is so in love with his man. Envy. Ended up, Ian, Minmin and I ate dinner together. Ian's bf have a X'mas style family gathering thus the driving spin. As suggested by Ian, we went ahead to one of the PRC restaurant serving super spicy numbing fish. We challenged the 'medium hot' and conquered it. Pricey. $33 each. I admit I went toilet to puke because I really ate too much. We had dessert. I thought Minmin won't be keen to meet up with Ed after that, even to Ian's amazement (who happens to be Minmin's knight throughout our incident), he did.
We parted ways with Ian (although I would like him to come and see our house especially with Minmin around). Went to Tiong Bahru and waited for Ed to pick us up. We went for a drink at AMK hub before going home. Really thankful towards Ed. I'm so glad to have him as my noisy brother.
131214 The family gathering
Had the family gathering on that day. Was basically lazing around and preparing for the gathering but learning to listen to my heart. I'm so fortunate and I always didn't realise that until my sisters know about my depression and came over to show support. It was the best dinner I ever had beside the reunion dinner. Why? Because there's love all around. My 2nd sis came with her husband, her husband liked my house very much, he even gave me tips on how to maintain my carpentry. I'm really thankful.
I was about to cry when I saw him getting too tired and had a fit. Saw my sister hugging him and coaxing with gentle words. That's the thick and thin together, and perhaps the "together till us part". My bro-in-law was very snobbish last time, but he has changed. I saw their love, and while typing this out, my tears are flowing. ever since then, I added on a prayer to GuanYin Ma that I hope they will overcome this together.
My nephew explored the house like a new playground for him. My 3rd sis and husband was really supportive and they ordered the food for all of us. We ended glued to the super large tv (thanks to Minmin) watching Cafe.Waiting.Love Almost cried seeing the cafe scene and the wilful girl. Felt connected to the scene. Although Dad wasn't with us but Mom came and was really supportive. Dad even bought jackfruit (yes, I only eat the jackfruit Dad chose for me, because he always know how to pick the nice ones for me). I am so blessed. Now I realised it all.
I had health, but because of stress and negativity, I piled up blood pressure and heart issue. I had love, I pushed away the love of my life. I had company, I chose to shut one by one down when they weren't given me any attention or time. I didn't realise I was so blessed until I lose it all. Now I know how blessed I am.
121214 A magical afternoon.
I began with my chores in the morning as usual. Just after I decided to finally have lunch, which means I have to get out of my comfort zone, I received a message at about 1pm plus.
Minmin texted me asking me to go cafe as a friend. I was beyond estacy. He asked me to go to this Fabulous Baker Boys, meeting up at Kinokuniya at about 3.30pm. I went out early but not so early because he mentioned he wanted to run some errands. I don't want him to feel my excitement. He also said he wanted to go Mapletree Biz City for gym. I didn't know who is the GX instructor but I asked to follow anyway.
We meet up at Kino as stated. There he was, cladded in Le Petite Prince (a very nice t-shirt but too costly for me to buy then, plus we agreed that it was a nice design) with his black Agnes b. cap. He looked so cute in them. I don't know he purposely dressed up for the occasion or the errands before, I am thankful that he dressed up and meet up with me.
We shopped around at Kino on our own pace for awhile before going to Fabulous. Fabulous beside, being fabulous, was abit loud and noisy due to a party. The guys were all very friendly but I was quite defensive because I was admiring the cakes and was suddenly asked whether he can help us. Some of us like to take our time to read the little cards written there and of course, for Minmin, taking pictures.
We realised we were actually the lucky ones to have not been rejected for seating. They were about to close to rest for an hour at 5pm. I explained to Minmin that I didn't buy anything (that's from yesterday SMS because I kinda missed him after not seeing him for awhile and knowing that he is going to HK soon), gave him the selfie stick hoping that it will be useful in HK and an adaptor that turns any micro usb into a 16-pin lightning plug. Minmin, I lied about the lightning plug, if you ever read this. It was bought for you, it wasn't free.
We walked along Fort Canning Hill, going to Funan Centre. I'm glad I suggested that, because he managed to buy a box of nano danbos. I liked Danbo because it represent first love and innocence. I gave the original one to him during one of the X'mas (I think). I'm glad it stayed as something he likes.
Then we went to buy something for Gage. Then, I realised who is the GX instructor for today. He showed me where he bought the reindeer cookies from (sorry dear, I bought the iPhone 6 and barely can feed off that time, much less to buy one of my own, although I would love the gingerbread you've been buying for the last 2 years) and we bought a X'mas fruit cake for Gage, all beautifully wrapped.
We were still early for the class so we decided to roam around Vivocity. He was so eagered to go to the Superdry store but was disappointed with the designs. I liked the design he chose but thinking that it is just a copycat version of what our few friends had, I hoped he think twice (and actually, bought one very nice one for him for his 30th birthday). He's been talking about bags for sometime. I hope he can find one that he likes since he is in HK while I am typing this.
We went to Toy R Us and with his luck, I got a gachapon I liked. We headed off to Mapletree.
Inside the changing room, we saw Gage, so I passed the gift to him straightaway. He was delighted. Minmin and Gage was chatting while I was changing on the other side (the usual place, yes, I have usual corners to go based on different gyms). The only thing I noticed was Minmin looking at me while Gage teased him and Gage mentioned why Minmin was looking at me. We had a nice pump where I witness his vast improvement especially on his lower limbs.
Minmin wanted to get JY and Ed out, so I texted Ed during class. Ed was excited that it was Minmin's idea to meet up and go to To-gather cafe. However, JY couldn't join us and so I suggested to Gage we should all go together instead.
It was fun connecting to Gage and of him. I remembered I was a bit put off by Gage when he hugged Minmin. But after losing Minmin, I realised that it doesn't matter so long Minmin didn't reciprocate. I think he was put off too looking as him touching and brushing off his shoulder.
We sent Gage off before we went out for a drink. Although the conversation was badly steered, I'm glad it happened. Cos I realised I changed. We had a lot of eye contacts while in the conversation because we know each other too well. I'm so happy to see him. I'm thankful that Gage insist on sitting on the front seat leaving the 2 of us at the back seat and I can see him falling asleep comfortably and safely.

If I could have just one wish,
Santa Claus is coming to town.
lostknight - 1 day ago
Parents tell their children that lying is bad. But are compulsive liars themselves.
Is Santa Claus real? No.
Then why is it acceptable to instill false beliefs in order to get the behaviour you desire?
As long it's for the better, and not worse, it's ok to make people believe in things that aren't real?
Does that mean if someone asked for my opinion if she is fat, but isn't, i should say yes? Because that may lead to healthier eating habits and lifetstyle that may prolong her life?
At the end of the day, regardless of Santa is real or not, children will still get presents anyway. So false beliefs about Santa are pointless.
There are all sorts of things we are told are bad and we shouldn't do. However, it becomes acceptable when the masses are doing it too.
