Before my vocal teacher could inform me on the next activity organized by the school, my reaction was jumpy and repeating saying NO. Oh well, my reaction was totally not exaggerating at all because there's going to be a singing competition. And I strongly believed she was inviting me to join but she didn't try to persuade me to join after looking at my reaction.
Shortly after that, we started my singing practise on My Immortal by Evanescence. This is a song I don't really like because I can't sing this song well... Mostly because I suck at the time but there is improvement because I managed to sing this song at a slow tempo. But that's not the main attraction of this post. While singing this song, my mind trailed off to the competition. I was imagining my singing of this song in the competition. And somehow I giggled during the practise and missed out a few sentences. HAHA. I shared this imagination with the teacher. She commented I might be the next 'William Hung' with that song!! But I thought I would just end up terrorizing the audience with my singing!! So somehow I managed to persuade her to not invite me to join any competition or activities because my voice is totally not ready. And somehow I also managed to make her think that her reputation is at risk too for a student like me to go on stage. HEHE. A win win situation in conclusion.
But anyway we end up agreeing to settle on Tearsdrop on My Guitar by Taylor Swift. We both got hook on that song because the lyric is just plain sad and it's applicable to anyone, both male and female. After singing the song, we commented the song in unison with one sentence "That's just so sad."
Have you guys heard of this song before? If no, I hope you enjoy this country song.
What are you?

I somehow feel fortunate to have bought a very beautiful and lovely set of tarot cards in 2006. That is because I can't find back that range of tarot cards in Malaysia bookstore at the moment. I feel blessed. I have another deck which is traditional and I seriously got no idea how to play with it, as I'm just too lazy to remember the position of the cards and interpreting it. HAHA.
So what Tarot Card are you?
Talk! Woman, talk!

Weird commentary came from my mother over dinner. I just got out from the shower and the television was airing Oprah Winfrey talkshow. I leaned over the sofa to check the Astro guidebook, hoping there would be some interesting program to watch. Spotting none, I asked out loud if my mother and sister were watching Oprah. They replied a big no.
Suddenly my mother chirped "I hate watching this kind of talk show because the guest talks too much."
HAHA. My sister and I replied in unison "THEY ARE PAID TO TALK. THEY ARE THERE TO TALK."
I had a good stomach exercise before having dinner.

I thought of a way to put my ultimate concern in a question.
There was a Chinese headline on the newspaper stating "Economic Explosion" due to the global recession. There will always be a time for the economic bubble to burst and it usually happens once every 10 years. No? The last time it happened in the Asia was 1997, known as Asian Financial Crisis. And it happens again in mid 2008 onwards. So it's quite true right? Still not convince? Ok. Let's look any economic graph. You could see the ups and downs right? So the theory is quite true right? [I won't use 'fact' because I have forgotten most of my economic terms]
So if you were to agree with me that there's a peak where the economy bubble would burst at a time, could I substitute the economy with natural resources? Could you now imagine the state of the world's natural resources on the economic graph except the dotted lines don't go up and down but only down and down and further down? In the least, the economy on the graph could bounce back but natural resources could never bounce back; its graph would never have lines going up. If yes, it would be miracle. Please don't ask me or even tell me that natural resources could recover back to its original state [I'm saying this because I know there would be people telling me this line] or even my claims are too serious because environment could recover on its own. Yes, the environment can recover on its own course WITHOUT humans. But humans cannot live without environment. We still can't create anything out of nothing. And please don't challenge me saying we would be able to create anything out of nothing in the future like an author wrote in his book that there would be sexual pill, which is viagra. But when will we have that techology? If humans really had that technology, you and I won't be able to feel and taste that technology because we might not even have enough of resources to survive by then! If we could imagine the deprivation and suffering of not having enough money to buy food, then is it possible to imagine the same emotion when you can't meet your basic needs like to drinking clean water and eating food? Just because the environment is so bare and polluted? I'm talking rubbish? Ok... An example would be during war... I'm sure you have heard people digging ground in search for sweet potatoes or eating insects... And sometimes people don't even have sweet potatoes to eat because there were none. People... kids... youth were forced to starve...
I can't blame people for not being able to picturise what I just said because we are so fortunate to be surrounded by food supply. Right, left, center are restaurants and food outlets.
Speaking of which, I have a half loaf of unfinished bread on my kitchen table...

I had a fulfilling dinner tonight at a very unknown restaurant 10 minutes away from my home. The menu was very simple and I was actually not impressed. I thought the menu could have more varities, but I was starving so I just picked their today special: Tuna Meltz. The description of it was very simple but it was neatly done, I must say, when it was served. I first thought it as quite pricy but I was so full after cleaning up the plate. I changed my mind again.
As I was eating, it suddenly struck to me why no restauranteur tries to specialise in serving soup? Yes, just mainly soup served with garlic bread. How's that?? Of course, can serve with something else la but along that idea.

I have been busy reading Tony Buzan's The Power of Social Intelligence recently. Correction: rereading since I lost track where I have stopped. Buzan listed top 10 listening habits that would damage your listening skill and weaken your Social Intelligence. I would only highlight no 2: Trying to do other things while listening. Good that Buzan highlights this. Because I would able to whack my friend the next time he tries to read newspaper just because our conversation suddenly decides to "take a break". I wanted to talk continue talking about a certain topic but he suddenly takes out a paper like a magician fetching a white rabbit off a hat. He never even bothers to engage me in the news he is reading... Just laughing to himself while reading. It happened twice. Thank god. I decided not to have tea or coffee with him anymore because I don't want to be neglected during our conversation...
P.S: Thank you all for keep coming back! Internet was too slow for the past few days for me to update the blog!
