    • Sharon Pow Liyi‎@laea: a Dior lipstick $42

      7 hours ago

Seriously, I really dont think requesting for a paper bag for a Dior Lipstick retailing at S$42 is overboard. While the gift-wrapping can be slightly over the line, and “throwing the thing on the table” is being insolent, it’s sad that a simple gesture such as:

1) explaining politely that such services are not provided

2) gift-wrapping a mere little lipstick

can be soOOoo difficult for someone who is obviously not very refined and gracious herself.

*shakes head*

And I suppose she thinks she is civilized as well as very well-educated in a job which asks for Min’ N level huh? Lol. What a joke.

It’s not difficult to guess how her attitude must be like. If you’re giving an attitude to people then naturally people will give attitude back to you.

And she even dares to complain publicly on her facebook and showcase to everyone how she thinks customers who bought a DIOR lipstick from her and requested for a paper bag is cheapskate? OMG…LVMH…please choose your employees carefully leh!

Imagine my horror when I see some of her friends agreeing with her. No wonder they say birds of a feather flock together. Only Laea, who has the brains of asking what type of lipstick first before commenting with assumption.

Some people always complain about how difficult their customers are.

But they never realised they behaved exactly like how their customers behaved when they are the customers to other sales people.

So, think for others in their shoes.

Oh well. Sometimes I feel I’m an alien. Because…well…these people made me feel so.

Haiz…Singapore customer service..is truly pathetic with such people around.

I really admire the Japanese…most of them are just so refined and gracious. Not just the people in service line, is like, everyone is so nice. You nice to me, I nice to you. You dont steal my things, I dont steal your things. That is like the perfect place. Unlike Singaporeans, when someone sees another person left behind an iphone, they’ll be gleaming silently and waiting to pounce on it, instead of having the integrity to call out to the person that he/she has forgotten his/her phone, or returning it at all.

Now, this is call cheapskate okie.

You can google more about how the Japanese handle the earthquake crisis. They’re all very considerate, queue in order, no pushing, calm and collected. Just imagine an earthquake in Singapore? There will be chaos……maybe that’s why Singapore has no natural disasters. (=.=)”’

Body found in rooftop water tank – Singapore Woodlands

Body found in rooftop water tank
By Seet Sok Hwee / Hetty Musfirah Abdul Khamid | Posted: 16 May 2011 1722 hrs

SINGAPORE: A 30-year-old Indonesian woman was found dead in a water tank on the rooftop of Blk 686B Woodlands Drive 73. Police has classified the case as murder.

Police were alerted to the to the body of the woman in the water tank, said to be about 1.5 metres wide, at about 10am.

It is understood that blood stains were found in the water tank.

Water supplies for those living at Block 686B came to a halt at about 11am.

Notices were put up by the town council, informing residents about the disruption.

Residents of the 15-storey block had to lug buckets of water from the washing area at the void deck.

PUB said it received a report of the incident at Blk 686B, which is under the purview of Sembawang Town Council, at 3.30pm on Monday.

PUB said the Sembawang town council immediately isolated all the tanks serving the block once it was informed of the incident. There are eight water tanks servicing the block.

Washing, flushing and sterilising works of tanks and distribution pipes began immediately.

PUB said officers were also on site to assist the town council, and also provided water bags and a water tanker.

The national water agency, PUB, said water supply is expected to be restored by midnight.

A resident said she felt like vomiting after she got word of the murder. She said she will take precautions for fear that the water had been contaminated.

“This morning, I used the water for cooking, But now I have to go home and throw it all away. I asked if we could bathe, the people in charge said better not. When I found out, I thought it was horrific.”

Another resident was resigned to what has happened. She said: “I’m not scared, I already cooked with it, I’m not scared.”

The deceased had long hair and was found in a T-shirt and bermudas. She was pronounced dead at 1pm.

It is believed that she works with a family living in the block where she was found.

One of the lifts at the block was also out of order, with some residents saying that they saw blood stains in the lift.

A 27-year-old Bangladeshi has been arrested in connection to the case.

A resident living in the opposite block said he saw the suspect being arrested at about the same time.

He said: “I saw an Indian man, wearing light green colour shirt caught by the police officers. Don’t know what happened, did not hear any kind of loud noise or anything like this.”

Some residents living on the highest floor said they heard loud voices of people quarrelling early in the morning.

Oh my freaking god..this is grosssss~~

I watched a Japanese horror before which had the same horrible happenings: little girl drowned in water tank(subsequently became ghost). Except that this time it’s murder, not a little girl and definitely not just a plot in a movie! So damn scary. But, I thought the door to the rooftop is always being locked? I knew that because I stayed at the highest storey before. Okie..maybe the Bangladeshi cut the bolt or something.

Seriously, lately is one bad news after another. Other than natural disasters which are happening outside Singapore, I’m bothered by the increasing cases of murder in Singapore. It wasnt like this before. Yes, although it was announced that crime rates has decreased over the past 5 years but those statistics simply combine theft, vandalism and other peasy crimes together. Murder stats have definitely increased, but I cant find them on the web. Naturally, they wont be published too. And have you noticed, most of them were associated with foreigners(no matter the victims or the murderers)
:
:
List of Major Crimes in Singapore (updated till year 2000 only) from Wiki
Majority were foreigners, I just dont understand why. Among them, the more “happening” ones was Huang Na’s kidnap and murder, and of course, the infamous Liu Hong Mei who was chopped into pieces and thrown into Kallang river. Both are obviously, from China.

Now we have The Romanian Embassy who hit-and-run twice resulting in 1 death and 2 injuries. Year 2009. Escaped from Singapore.

The Korean Embassy car who fled after the alleged collision in Geylang in 2010.

Enraged step-father who strangled her step-daughter which her China wife had with previous China hubby in 2011.

And I just cant help wondering. Somehow, murder allegations associated with big shots like the foreign embassies often went 不了了之(no status updates). Whereas small peasy minor crimes like Michael Fay’s(an American) vandalism cases created such a big hoohaa over Singapore’s firm and righteous stand on his 6 strokes caning, jail and fine. It was reduced to 4 strokes anyway, on Bill Clinton’s appeal.

I feel sorry for Huang Na who was just an innocent girl abducted by purportedly a psycho, but not for Liu Hong Mei(You can google for her whole story if you want).

You can say that I’m racist or whatever, but I firmly believed, other than hit-and-run cases, elaborate and deliberate murders are definitely not executed without a reason. When I first heard about gruesome murder, my first thought was, “Wah, what the hell did she do to incite so much hatred, and cruelty being done to her?” Certainly it takes MORE than common BGR relationship problems to drive a man(not insane but obviously driven to insanity) to chop her up!

Generally I feel Singaporeans were being educated in such a way that most of them are more concerned with their own survival, maintaining the upkeep of their homes and cars, and for the poorer, their precious rice bowl and 3 meals a day. Sigh…also dont know this is good or not. Thus they hardly have the time or effort to really come up with something evil up their sleeves, which is precisly what the government hopes to achieve by tying all Singaporeans up with loans loans loans. Study loans, home loan, car loan. It might not be a bad thing actually lah…on the whole, at least it keeps the less educated and very low income earners from creating chaos, riots or strikes.

Anyway, I dont wish to debate with anyone over this issue.

And the point I’m trying to make is, majority of Singaporeans abide by all these chinese proverbs;

“安分守己,奉公守法, 明哲保身,多一事不如少一事, 以不变,应万变。”

Most would like to remain status-quo and not question anything, even if it’s unsettling.

Therefore, I would say, unless you’re so unlucky to bump into a psycho among the millions, it’s highly unlikely you’ll get gruesomely murdered or cut up into a dozen pieces for a small grudge.

China women
Vice and heartbreak
Seductive, money-minded ones are turning lives upside down, but blame also lies with naive Singaporean males.

By Seah Chiang Nee. Jul 2, 2006

A SERIES of high-profile passion killings in recent months involving fiercely materialistic women from China and local married men has highlighted a growing social problem in Singapore.

Cases of businessmen keeping them as mistresses and retirees being fleeced of their retirement money by younger foreign women, mostly from the China mainland, are on the rise.

Singapore’s “open door” immigration policies have resulted in a steady influx of Chinese mainlanders as well as other nationals, which has contributed to economic growth.

But it also has a negative social impact. Among the inflow are thousands of poor China women who come just to make a quick fortune by exploiting simple-minded males with more money than sense.

Other nationals, too, work in Singapore’s sex trade, but few are as aggressive, wily or family-destructive as their sisters from China.

I must hasten to say that the majority of China women here are simply earning an honest living and are not cheats or prostitutes.

But a large minority is fiercely ambitious, seductive and prepared to use any means to get rich, including seducing men into an affair or marriage, then cheating them and returning home or moving to another man.

Swindle cases are on the rise although some men are too embarrassed to go to the police. The victims range from retirees to middle-aged married men with grown-up children.

This easy use of sex has revealed just how vulnerable Singapore’s older men are despite – maybe because of – their conservative upbringing in which sex was regarded a taboo subject.

After decades of “pent-up” frustration or deprivation, some are becoming easy prey to younger, prettier women intent on seduction.

It also brings into question the sex health of some older Singaporeans. Other men are just lonely souls living drab lives.

A letter from “Elisabeth” says: “I feel worried for the ‘old uncles’ in Singapore. These elders are really simple-minded, blinded by temporary pleasures.

“They thought these Chinese girls really liked them and even gave them their savings. Pity the family.”

It has aroused resentment here, especially among housewives who have repeatedly called for action to keep them out.

“We accept that most mainlanders here are decent folks, but I don’t see why the authorities should allow dubious women to come here and break up families,” one lady blogged.

But others say it is not fair to blame it all on others and feel “lustful” Singaporeans should bear a greater share. The rationale should be: “If you arrest the prostitute, arrest the customer, too.”

Several severe cases have resulted in murder. In a recent botched relationship, a China woman, aged 29, was strangled and stabbed to death in a massage parlour. Her accused killer was charged in hospital after sustaining knife wounds. The case is pending.

Last year a Singaporean executive, a married man, was stabbed to death in front of a Desaru hotel as he was about to check in with a China lady undergraduate.

Jealousy is, of course, a universal troublemaker, but when it involves a senior citizen losing “face” and his retirement money, the combination could be explosive.

In one of Singapore’s most gruesome murders, factory supervisor Leong Siew Chor, 51, was convicted of killing Chinese national Liu Hong Mei, 22, when their relationship soured.

He strangled her with a towel last year, chopped up her body, packed the parts in plastic bags and cardboard boxes, and dumped them into the Kallang and Singapore rivers.

Shocked family members and friends said he was a responsible, caring person. He was sentenced to death.

Since the government began loosening up on prostitution in recent years, more “loose” foreign women have flocked here.

Few, however, can match the enterprising mainland ladies, who have long moved into Singapore’s residential heartland. Some start their own business or become a kept mistress of rich businessmen.

Sex workers come from three general categories of China arrivals:
* Girls on student pass,
* About 4,500 “study mamas” accompanying their children to study here, and
* Tourists on visa-free visits for 30 days.

They work in various ways, plying the street for customers or working in one of these places – nightclubs, karaoke joints, massage parlours (“health centres”) or foot reflexology shops which offer various forms of sex services.

The murder of a China woman (a study mama with a teenage son) in a heartland massage outlet has exposed how deep vice has penetrated into the housing estates.

Hundreds of these unlicensed outlets have sprung up, run by China women who offer foot reflexology or Chinese “traditional” massage, but are really a cover for sex.

Furore over these outlets has resulted in many closures and a tightening of rules governing licensed centres. People, however, are betting they will return, given the strong public demand.

Actually the study mamas (many hailing from China’s poorer regions) are allowed to work but not as a masseuse unless they’re permanent residents.

Most, however, manage to get around the law by registering under a front man.

One such local, for example, is former civil servant Toh Ah Fong, 63, who has lent his name to at least 50 such establishments since 2004, most of them in the HDB heartland.

For every Singaporean who resents them, there are several who admire their gall, hard work and initiatives against whom Singaporeans are ill-matched to compare.

Lately, the China masseuse has come up with a new trick to provide sex in the home: she comes knocking on doors as a karang guni collector of old newspapers.

This was published in The Sunday Star today.”

I really hope awareness be raised that the large influx of foreigners not only creates social problems(Ya nobody cares if poor Singaporean wives get ditched by heartless husbands), MORE IMPORTANTLY, it also hints on a subtly increasing murder rates in Singapore. If anyone has any foresight, they would know another 900,000 influx of foreign workers is going to worsen the situation.

The key now is, not that they cant/shouldnt come, it’s simply TOO MANY okie! TOO MANY!
:
:
I do understand everything’s a number game, the more people we have, regardless of other nationality etc, naturally, crimes associated will be increased. But, if murder crimes by Singaporeans has always been low before all these FT came into the picture, then it’s certainly something to be worth analyzing about.

And yeah…continue to hide….

“Straits Times now omits mentioning PR status of foreigners committing crimes in Singapore
September 25th, 2010 | Author: Your Correspondent

“Afraid of revealing unwittingly to Singaporeans of some unworthy foreigners who are being given PR and citizenship by the PAP regime, the Straits Times now omits mentioning the PR status of foreigners commmitting crimes in Singapore altogether.

In the past, the paper will usually mention the status of foreigners convicted of committing crimes which brought to light many cleaners, construction workers, bus drivers, masseurs, nursery teachers, chambermaids and even freelance prostitutes being given Singapore PR and citizenship, unheard of anywhere else in the world.

Now, only the nationality of the criminal is published.

For example, in April 2010, the Straits Times reported a Singapore PR from Malaysia Tan Eng Heong being sentenced to six months jail for road rage. (read here)

Upon appeal, he has his sentence reduced to only one month. However, the subsequent report did not mention that he is a Singapore PR (read here)

It is not known if Mr Tan’s PR will now be revoked by the PAP regime.

The number of foreigners, PRs and new citizens who are convicted of criminal offences each year in Singapore remains a mystery to this very day.

Due to the PAP’s pro-foreigner and ultra-liberal immigration policies, foreigners (excluding PRs) now make up 36 percent of Singapore’s population, up from 14 percent in 1990. Of the remaining 64 percent who are citizens, an increasing number are born overseas.

If the Straits Times continue to censor the PR/citizenship status of foreigners committing crimes in Singapore, we can safely assume that they are either Singapore PR or new citizen.”

Fast & Furious 5 (2011)

Movie: Fast & Furious 5 (2011)
Ratings: 4.99999/5

Comments:
This has got to be the greatest movie of the year! I’ve probably watch 1 or 2 of it’s sequels before but seriously dont have an impression. Just the title bores me, as I thought it will be another stupid show about racing and nothing else.

I was so wrong. Thanks to the 4.5 star ratings at gv.com.sg, they certainly encouraged dearie and me to catch it. I’ve always find them pretty zun, as to my taste buds. What can I say? For 90% of the show, my fingers were in my mouth(please dont think in the obscene direction) so you can just imagine how thrilling and engaging the show is. Not only that, it’s also freaking funny and full of surprises. I’ll say the script writer, the director(Justin Lin, an asian!!) as well as the stunts coordinator were almost a match made in heaven.

Would vastly prefer Bruce Willis to star as Dominic, but still, this is a must-watch! It’s more than just mere racing and explosions. =)

Movie: The Lost Bladesman
Ratings: 2/5
Comments: Hmm I’ve watched this movie? Oh yes, I think I did. Somehow left no impression. It might be because I’m sick of Donnie’s fighting scenes, might be. Particularly those at the stairs. The lighting sucks lah! Anyway I thought the plot is simply boring and doesnt link very well. The 曹操 is unimpressive too. I think the 曹操(starring 刘丹) in HK TVB series of 洛神 wins hands down. 洛神 is a great show, do catch it. Not to mention, the abrupt ending by simply announcing the death of Donnie doesnt suit me very much. Hello, the whole movie is titled 關雲長, I think a proper beginning and ending is essential.

History has been always painting 曹操 as the bad guy, but this movie is trying to depict otherwise. Highly debatable. I might read up on 曹操 if I have the time.

《宫锁心玉》

最近,刚看完《宫锁心玉》。原名《宫》,据介绍,《宫》是中国第一部清朝穿越

入宫成为宫女,并与四阿哥,雍正(何晟铭饰)以及八阿哥(冯绍峰饰)相识,卷
入清代著名的九子夺嫡之争的故事。剧情涉及了爱情、友谊、阴谋等多重元素,相
当曲折。

主演:杨幂/冯绍峰/何晟铭/佟丽娅/汤镇业/郭羡妮/刘雪华。

香港也尝试过此类剧,比如《寻秦记》。相比之下,《宫》少了很多穿越时代的趣事,
勾心斗角的构思也不如。主角杨幂的演技也差强人意。还好杨幂长得甜美可爱,要
不然,老实说是看不下去的。但就何晟铭,冯绍峰和佟丽娅的感情戏而言,是十分
让人感动的。四阿哥,雍正,这个经典人物绝对是非常难诠释的角色。内敛,城府
深,有谋略, 野心, 和心机,雍正不如深情款款的八阿哥来的讨喜。但不知怎么,我的视线
就是离不开四阿哥。=P 他的眼神,好深情,也好忧郁。所以,一直悄悄希望四阿哥和
晴川能在一起。=)

剧长35集,我居然看完了! 很难的哟! 结局蛮好的。值得一看! 听说有Part 2。原班人马。

The Blue Hole – William Trubridge and the French Spiderman – Alain Robert

Dearie just showed me a video which was just, oh so amazing!

Many would have heard of “The Black Hole” but have you heard of “The Blue Hole“?


The Great Blue Hole, located near Ambergris Caye, Belize

I think all the divers will probably know. =) Of course not me lah, the aquaphobic freak.

A blue hole is a submarine cave (inland) or underwater sinkhole. They are also called vertical caves. There are many different blue holes located around the world, typically in low-lying coastal regions. The best known examples can be found in Belize, the Bahamas, Guam, Australia (in the Great Barrier Reef), and the Red Sea. The deepest blue hole in the world—at 202 metres (663 ft)—is Dean’s Blue Hole, located in a bay west of Clarence Town on Long Island, Bahamas. Other blue holes are about half that depth at around 100–120 metres (330–390 ft). The diameter of the top entrance ranges typically from 25–35 metres (82–115 ft) (Dean’s Blue Hole) to 300 metres (980 ft) (Great Blue Hole in Belize).

Can you imagine? A freaking cave in the freaking ocean! Just the thought of it send fears through me. And it’s not a horizontal cave okie~ It’s a vertical cave! So it gets deeper and deeper….

你怕黑吗?

你怕水吗?

我怕!!!!!!

But this man, or rather, fish…………………………

William Trubridge freedives THE ARCH at Blue Hole, Dahab

No suit, no tank, no fins!! With only the skin on his back and just one breath…….

I’m sure even for no swimming/diving experts like me, you’ll know how amazing that is. He can hold his breath for at least 2.5minutes…and I think my max is only 30seconds. =/ What is even more admirable is how well and calm he took the whole dive, it is a pressure as well as mental challenge. Not to mention the courage to dive further and further and the acute, precise estimation of the distance taken. Hell, you still have to dive back to the top! I simply cant imagine if breath was out half-way through….*shivers*

Currently he sets the world’s free-diving record(Constant Weight Apnea Without Fins, CNF) at 100m…..

There are many forms of free-diving, you can read here.

Here’s another breath-stopping video. It shows a much clearer view of “The Blue Hole”.


Guillaume Nery base jumping at Dean’s Blue Hole, filmed on breath hold by Julie Gautier

It’s a fiction video…hmm…nevertheless, still a tranquil and heart throbbing one.

Along the youtube page of his videos…you’ll see other videos like….”Last dive of so-and-so”….”38metre dive goes wrong”…..”The death of…”…..and it really deeply saddens me. And I have no courage to watch them….

Another legendary figure would be Alain Robert, known as “the French Spider-Man”. He’s famous for scaling skyscrapers with nothing except his bare hands, climbing shoes, and occasionally, a bag of chalk powder. His current most prestigious record is Taipei 101 building at 508 metres in Taiwan. Here’s one video of him scaling an 150 meter building in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. It’s probably peanuts to him. =P

I had the privilege of hearing him speak at one MDRT experience(been to many, dont remember which one) and I vaguely remembered the words he said ever so offhandedly, “I wont allow myself to fall…because I know I cant afford to fall!”. It was indeed such drive and determination that propelled him to scale greater heights even after massive operations. And did I even mentioned he has Vertigo?

What can I say? These people risk their lives just to fulfill their dreams! Mountain climbing? You can still stop when you choose to do so, you can choose to quit, you can save yourselves.

People like Alaine Robert….they dont allow themselves to fail because they know they cant fail! They know they must succeed or else death will be the outcome.

Dont give yourself another easy way out or you’ll tend to take it unknowingly.

Give yourself NO WAY OUT.

Remember “I MUST”, “I WILL” and dump words like “Probably”, “Maybe”, “Perhaps”.

And WE will succeed!! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!

The thing with photoshop and rising bloggers

I dont have an issue with massive photoshopping pictures especially when I understand where popular bloggers are coming from; that everything must be nice nice, sui sui on their blogs.

But hor, can have a consistent standard in the photoshopping or not? As in, photoshop to the “same pretty face” lah. Some pictures looked as different as day as night! Despite as ravishing as they can be, they totally looked like different people. It calls to mind that even photoshopping can have a professional standard. Hmmm………. XX’s photoshopping skills is pretty good, for 90% of her photoshopped pictures looked pretty much the same. At least people who dont know about her(photoshopping) or people who havent seen her before might be conned into believing she really looks like that.

I cant say the same for her. And it boggles me how some bloggers, after risen to fame,  can totally change 360degrees. While I perfectly understand the view from her angle, I think it’s unnecessary to spew vulagarities at people like nobody’s business. To which, if she saw this comment, will probably reply, “It’s NONE of your BUSINESS and f*** Y**!” Lol.

You see, no matter whether you’re in the right or wrong, the moment you start cursing and swearing, it just doesnt reflect well on your upbringing and it evidently showed that you’re at a loss of words to defend yourself. Which in turn hints, that you’re guilty at whatever others might be claiming.

Can almost hear her swearing “F*** Y**” at me from a distance like an echo…..”F*** Y**…..F*** Y**….F*** Y**”. Lol. =.=”””””””’

It’s a thin line between being blunt, straight-forward, true-to-yourself, or 真, between downright insolent, haughty, rude and behaving like a total shrew. While the words I used may not be friendly, at least I dont sound like a whore who only got that 2 words in my dictionary.

As much as some bloggers, after risen to fame are trying hard to establish a famous(or infamous) identity and showing people, “I got ATTITUDE OK”, there’s still a tact to go about it. You can be mean, haughty and anything, but if possible, try to veer yourself towards the direction of a classy b*t** than a cheapkate wh***.

There’s a difference. =)

“Most men don’t find the Singapore woman perfect”

Most men don’t find the Singapore woman perfect

A whopping 73.29 per cent disagreed with a report that claimed local women possessed the ‘most ideal’ qualities. — ST FILE PHOTO

NO, THE Singaporean woman is not the ideal marriage partner. That was the response straitstimes.com received from its readers through a poll tagged to the article titled ‘Singaporean women: the perfect partner?’.

A whopping 73.29 per cent disagreed with a report released by an unnamed international dating agency that claimed local women possessed the ‘most ideal’ qualities namely beauty, loyalty, adherence to tradition, initiative and fluency in English, hence the label of ‘perfect partner’.

A number of readers were quite critical of Singaporean women. Wen Wei wrote on Facebook: ‘The report should be written as: Are Singaporean women the most pampered?’ Nine others decided to ‘like’ his statement on Facebook. Echoing Wen Wei’s sentiments, Massi Rites wrote: ‘Materialistic I must say. Majority of Singapore women seek men with cars. Public transport is a no-no.’

Only 25.55 per cent voted ‘Yes’. Eu Jin Gabriel Tan sportingly wrote: ‘ I support local produce.’ Kelvin Lee wrote: ‘Heck, I ain’t complaining. I married one!’

Ph Koh wrote: ‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. There is no such thing as a perfect partner. Gotta work work work on it – takes mutual effort.’

The remaining 1.48 per cent decided to sit on the fence. Steve Boyce, who married a Singapore Eurasian, wrote: ‘She certainly is not pampered. I didn’t specifically seek a Singaporean wife though. It’s just how things happened.’ Taking a more holistic approach, Xavier Tan wrote: ‘It depends on how they’re brought up.’ John Tang wrote: ‘Perfect but many stay single.’



:
:
Yet another article to attack Singaporean ladies are less than perfect. This is not the first time I’m reading such content and I’m growing excessively annoyed by such articles. Rather than continuously preaching on how imperfect Singaporean Ladies are, why not reflect on how whiny and empty the journalists are – complain and complain over and over again over the same thing.

And what a stupid piece of article.

Hello~ Nobody is perfect okie.

And please dont stereotype. It all depends on how one is brought up and mutual effort between the 2 parties. Who dare to say they’re the ideal partners? There is always room for improvement. We have never said that we’re the ideal partners. And in my humble opinion, there are never ideal partners, only ideal relationships.

I dont believe in anyone being perfect. Only people who love one another perfectly.

(P/S Why I cant find the name of the journalist who wrote the article? He/she must be clueless of what to write and thus come up with a highly controversial but bland article.)
