Just when you thought that this place is dead, here I am with a post!
I got surprised with a mystery gift and here it is!
Thank you Nat for this surprise and eh, middle-of-nowhere present! *grin*
So this adds to my "collection" of cufflinks, if you call 4 sets a collection.
I just realised that all of them are silver. Perhaps it's time for me to get a new coloured set. Now, if only the devils are metallic red...
Nevertheless I still like it VERY MUCH. Can't wear for a chance to wear them! Thanks Goat!
Hopefully Manchester United will win Liverpool tonight and make this gift even sweeter!
Just for some entertainment, this is the new Anderson song for those who haven't hear it before:
I got myself a new computer over the last IT show! Finally I can watch HD movies in the comfort of my room. Shiok lah! It was kinda fun researching the parts and finally fixing it together. As the goat will say: "Geek."
My church is organising an Alpha course for anyone who is interested. It's free and you can come and make new friends if you like.
Wait, are you reading correctly? LY the God-basher goes to church???
Yup, you got it correct. It's a very long story and let's just say I've found a totally new life in which I feel a lot happier.
If you feel that you can relate to the video or you would just like to learn more, let me know ya? No obligations at all! You can just come for the first session and if you like it, don't carry on loh.
The location is at Telok Blangah, starting on 4th April at 7.30pm. Dinner is provided.
Hope to see some of you there!

I finally went to watch a show in the Gold Class movie theatre, fittingly the Golden Compass. I couldn't get seats to the regular theatre so I decided to try out the Gold Class.
Well, the seats are really nice and comfy. I like the fact that there is a blanket provided for every seat which makes the experience cosier. There was this call button where you can order food in the middle of the show, not bad!
And check out the packaging of everything! The tickets are enclosed in a nice classy folder (top) with the location of your seats. I was a bit surprised that they put my credit card and bill inside another folder (right) after I ordered beer and snacks inside the theatre. Even the wet tissue (left) was done with the Gold Class logo!
I seriously wonder how much of the ticket price actually went into the packaging.
Verdict: It's seriously like taking business class on an airplane while watching a full length movie. I would probably go again if there is a long movie. If the price is slightly lower at the range of $15-$20, I might actually be a regular there!

Oh man, I'm really amused by this! Beethoven 7 in the background seems to make it cheesier thought, haha!

25 Year Old Beauty Seeks Rich Banker
05/10/2007 following exchange took place on Craigslist - don’t miss investment banker's response
'What am I doing wrong?’
Okay, I’m tired of beating around the bush. I’m a beautiful (spectacularly beautiful) 25 year old girl. I’m articulate and classy. I’m not from . I’m looking to get married to a guy who makes at least half a million a year. I know how that sounds, but keep in mind that a million a year is middle class in New York City, so I don’t think I’m overreaching at all.
Are there any guys who make 500K or more on this board ? Any wives ? Could you send me some tips ? I dated a business man who made an average of around 200 - 250K. But that’s where I seem to hit a roadblock. $250,000 won’t get me to Central Park West. I know a woman in my yoga class who was married to an investment banker, and lives in Tribeca. She’s not as pretty as I am, nor is she a great genius. So what is she doing right ? How do I get to her level ?
Here are my questions specifically:
- Where do you single rich men hang out ? Give me specifics - bars, restaurants, gyms
- What are you looking for in a mate? Be honest guys, you won’t hurt my feelings
- Is there an age range I should be targeting ?
- Why are some of the women living lavish lifestyles on the so plain? I’ve seen really ‘Plain Jane’ boring types, who have nothing to offer incredibly wealthy guys. Then I’ve seen drop dead gorgeous girls in singles bars in the . What’s the story there ?
- Lawyers, investment bankers, doctors. How much do those guys really make ? And where do the hedge fund guys hang out ?
- How do you rich guys decide on marriage vs. just a girlfriend ? I am looking for MARRIAGE ONLY.
Please hold your insults - I’m putting myself out there in an honest way. Most beautiful women are superficial - at least I’m being up front about it. I wouldn’t be searching for these kind of guys if I wasn’t able to match them - in looks, culture, sophistication, and keeping a nice hearth and home'.
An Investment Banker's Response:
'I read your posting with great interest and have thought meaningfully about your dilemma. I offer the following analysis of your predicament.
Firstly, I’m not wasting your time. I qualify as a guy who fits your bill - that is, I make more than $500K per year. That said, here’s how I see it:
Your offer, from the prospective of a guy like me, is a plain and simple crappy business deal. Here’s why. Cutting through all the B.S., what you suggest is a simple trade: you bring your looks to the party and I bring my money. Fine, simple. But here’s the rub, your looks will fade and my money will likely continue into perpetuity - in fact, it is very likely that my income will increase, but it is an absolute certainty that you won’t be getting any more beautiful!
So, in economic terms, you are a depreciating asset. Not only are you a depreciating asset, however, your depreciation accelerates! Let me explain - you’re 25 now and will likely remain pretty hot for the next 5 years, but less so each year. Then the fade begins in earnest. By 35 - stick a fork in you!
So, in Wall Street terms, we'd call you a trading position - not a buy and hold…hence the rub…marriage. It doesn’t make good business sense to 'buy you' (which is what you’re asking) - so I’d rather lease. In case you think I’m being cruel, I would say the following: if my money were to go away, so would you - so when your beauty fades I need an out too. It’s as simple as that. So the deal that makes sense for me is dating, not marriage.
Separately, I was taught early in my career about efficient markets. So, I wonder why a girl as 'articulate, classy and spectacularly beautiful' as you has been unable to find your sugar daddy. I find it hard to believe that, if you are as gorgeous as you say you are, your $500K man hasn’t found you - if only for a tryout.
By the way, you could always find a way to make your own money - and then we wouldn’t need to have this difficult conversation.
With all that said, I must say you’re going about it the right way. Classic 'pump and dump'. I hope this is helpful, and if you want to enter into some sort of lease, please let me know'.

The last week was great, good enough to inspire me to blog about it!
I actually found a lot of time to practice, and practices were fruitful. For the first time in a while, I had an enjoyable lesson which was actually going somewhere.
I found some lost stamina which helped a lot!
Talking about finding stuffs, I ran into a friend at the most random of all places – Sim Lim Square. We had coffee and a long chat. It was as though I last saw her a few days ago than a few years! We reminisced about the good days in school, laughed over a few funny memories and shared some troubles.
She told me about life as a SIA stewardess, flying all over the world. I wish I could do the same – so far my job has only got me to 2 foreign cities. Not that I’m looking forever to more. All I get is military tattoo after military tattoo. Sigh.
Today, 3 months after booking it, I had my first driving lesson. It went well – I didn't crash the car.
