Being silent
Can it be right?
I wondered
He wondered
They wondered
Who else didn’t?
What’s wrong?

Man! I was late for camp today man! I overslept. The timer in my handphone rang at 0545, and I tuned it off, expecting my younger brother to get washed up and done with the toilet. However, I slept again! Till the sun rose up, I’m still sleeping. It was 0730, half an hour to my book in time; I’m still in the bed. SHIT! I wondered. Like the Nippon Bullet Train, I immediately sped up and rushed to the toilet, washed up, changed to my Number 4, wore my boots, open the door, closed it and ran from fourth level to the ground level for SMRT 171. To my most unlucky situation, the bus had just left! And I had no other choice to call for a cab, and I didn’t know Comfort Taxi charges 4 bucks for booking! Damn, I spent 12 bucks to go to my camp, and I was late for 10 minutes or so. I am very pissed at the price of booking a cab. I had to pay for calling them by my mobile phone operator and I have to pay Comfort for booking a cab for me.

Cliques are starting to form in the office, I guess. One group by one group. This phenomenon is called Office Politics. Personally, I will go for the group/clique, where I don’t have to worry about offending people, and thinking what the heck are other people talking about in their conversation. People are intelligent; however, it’s their personality, attitude, behaviour and feelings which control the ways they think, feel, and converse. I’m sure some people can really understand what am I trying to say, and who’s not. One will talk badly about others in one moment; eventually, someone will talk badly about him too. This is a vicious cycle. It’s bound to like this. Who can change it? Who can stop all this commotion and live harmoniously? No one could, because of different personality, attitude, behaviour and feelings. Seriously, I had enough of all these crappy stuff that is going on in the office.

I met Yong Qiang yesterday, together with the 38PHA guys and Pradip. We had a great time hanging out with this guy, who went to Thailand for few months. I’m replacing him when his term ends over there. He said it was fun and exciting. Practically watching pornography and playing PlayStation and watching TV. Oh yah, and his main scope is to fog the whole camp twice every week. Isn’t that relaxing? Phew, I’ve always thought that the attachment is very tough. Luckily, I’m going to enjoy my life over there.

Why that?
Can’t we live with something else?
Why that?
Can we stay cool and simple with something else?
