If there’s one thing I always want to teach and hope every other man get it easily is the importance of wearing the right shoes.

I can’t say enough how much I hate a man who wears his running shoes with jeans, berms, pants, kakis and any other bottom wear with the ONE same pair of shoes.  Shoes, wear the right shoes and they make you look awesome. Exhibit A:

 To make things a little simpler, cutting and color aside I will just go with the type of pants and the type of shoes because that is really one of my main concerns when it comes to matching shoes.

Running Shorts – Running Shoes (There is a whole level of science behind getting the right running shoes)

Jeans – Sneakers, Dress Shoes. (STRICTLY NO SLIPPERS)

Pants – Dress Shoes and Leather Shoes.

The above are just some very basic tips and of course it’s never a definite solution but the above should be able to help me get the basics right.

Here’s one if you need visual aid:

It’s really not hard to get the right shoes and match it nicely. Simply look at how people pull it off and do some shopping online!

If you are a typical guy who doesn’t like to shop, online shopping is one of easiest solution.  Check out Zalora and they have everything lined up for you from types to brand and the interface makes everything so easy!

I think I’ve given you enough tips for now because I am gonna go shop myself! BYE!

I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. 

I am Groot. 
I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot.

I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. 

I am Groot. 

This is one of those blog post that I might write happily now only to regret in the future.

1. My future son or daughter might read this and tell me "dad, seriously... That's bull shit."


2. A lot of random people who just read the header without reading the post and might just go around congratulating me that I'm going to be a dad all out of a sudden. LIKE HOW?

Self Doubt 

I am a very confident man and self doubt is probably one of those things I do least in my life. I believe I'm awesome and nothing is too much for me to handle but when it comes to being a dad, that's when self doubt comes in.

For those who knows me well enough will know that one of my biggest rant is about how much an as*hole my dad was or has been. He's never the kinda father figure person where you look upon and tell yourself "I want to grow up to be like my dad." instead you ask yourself, "What IF I grow up to become like my dad. As much as I knowI wouldn't want to be like him but what if?"

And to make things a little even harder, I enjoy my parties, I enjoy the events, whacking myself up at the gym and I even enjoy working which means there's a high chance I wouldn't spend that much time with my kid(s)?

Can I even enjoy my weekend bringing them around for lessons, going to their kids' parties, meeting other boring parents talking about which milk powder is better?

And imagine my pay going all onto my kid(s) instead of buying the things I like and eating the food I want?

Imagine your kid growing up into someone you least expect?

Oh... And when they get old enough to use search engines and read all my "work" online...

Part Time Dad 

I was pretty happy I was given the chance last weekend to help my Sister-in-law with the kids while she was busy. I mean of course my duty for that few hours is nothing close to what she has been doing for the kids. Signing them up for the lessons they like, sacrificing all her time on them, making sure they become the type of person she wants them to be.

I once asked my late brother, how do you know how to be a father? How to be a good father? How do you know what is best for the kid? It's not like someone can teach us what to do and the worst part is that the person who eventually gonna suffer from your "mistakes" is still your kids. His answer was, you just have to do it and you will know what to do. I guess it's pretty much like how I always tell others that the only way to learn how to swim is by getting wet.

Little Abby was like "Aiyo, I am so tiny!"
So I woke up early, I bought little Abby to lesson and in between lessons I had time to steal a breakfast, read some news off my mobile and also buy some more food home for the folks.

Rewarding myself for waking up early on a Saturday morning.

Buying breakfast back home for the folks was something my brother enjoyed doing. He would come knocking at our doors with truck load of breakfast. His bee hoon buying style will always leave an impression on the auntie because each bag of bee hoon looks more like a pillow at the end of it. Although my brother spent a lot of time away from us since he joined the air force and then got married and moved out, we always enjoy his ad-hoc company. He would always try his best to spend time with us whenever possible. And also to celebrate every possible "festival" at home. Birthdays are a big thing in the family.

And when I was done with Abby, it was Natacia's turn. Had to ensure she was on time, she brought her stuff, she has done her assignment. Although she's a very responsible girl, it's just natural of me to ask her all the questions to ensure she was ready.

We ended up late for her lesson because of bad traffic but we did have time for a #Selfie ! 
Although I didn't physically do a lot of work but I was like "woah, I'm kinda sleepy now after a morning and afternoon of running around..." Can you imagine how much my sister-in-law, my brother or even my mum has done at her time when she had to do all these to ensure we grow up alright?" I guess that's why it makes parents really angry when we are naughty.

Love is...

I didn't go for my morning ball game, I didn't go for a run/cycle or neither did I sleep in like I would love to on a week end but I was happy. I was happy to see the kids happy because they spent time with me, because they get to attend the lessons they enjoyed and also they felt love because they know we love them too. Is this what love is about? About sacrificing what you thought you love for someone else and in return seeing them happy and making you happy too?

I guess my brother was right... The human instinct in us did prepared us to be a parent, to learn and to sacrifice when the time comes for those who deserves it...

I guess TV shows do teaches us a lot isn't it? For a real player to really settle down... That was Legen..... DARY.

Rumour has it that all romance and sex will die after marriage which sounded really sad for anyone who is single but what is the problem behind this?

Image from: http://www.hotglitters.net/
Not too sure what is the real problem for sure but I do know some of the excuses no thanks to this angry husband who created an excel spreadsheet with regards to his almost non-existence sex life.

Of course, anything that has to do with sex will go viral eventually and this spread sheet "spread" all over the place and many ladies shared this on their Facebook pages with some comments and I thought I would love to comment on their comments.

"You mean the wife doesn't have her period?" 
I believe this question is with reference to the fact that she didn't say "Sorry, not the right time of the month." I would say it's either because she find it too common an excuse or the fact is that "HELLO! YOU CAN STILL HAVE SEX DURING YOUR PERIOD!" I know it might look like a crime scene but the truth is that you CAN still have sex. In fact I've read article that period sex is even more pleasurable. 

"Sex should be impromptu. What do you mean you ask for sex?" 
Let's be realistic. If a man don't ask, it can be disrespectful sometimes. And in the article it also didn't specifically said that the guy "ask" as in he send in his application form. So for all we know he did try "impromptu" but still got rejected? And woman is really tough isn't it? If we ask, they comment that man are not romantic and if we don't ask it's disrespectful. We just can't win.

He wants to have sex everyday?? Weekdays are so tiring!"
I'm not even surprised by this remark base on our birth rate. So we can't have sex on a weekday nights because we are going to do you for 6 hours shift? Comon, let's be cool about this, this will take no more than 15-30mins for some couples, so how hard (pun intended) is it on weekdays? That aside, if you can't have sex on Monday - Friday, that leaves us with Saturday and Sunday and how "romantic" and "impromptu" is that when you know your man is only "allowed" to be "impromptu" on Saturday and Sunday? #DoubleStandardMuch

What? He asked like everyday?
If base on the percentage of his success rate, can you imagine him not asking everyday? That amount of rejection spread across 3 months? A single fat boy might be having more sex than you by then.

"Don't be so petty and revengeful, you guys reject things too like washing the dishes, bringing the kids to school or going to brunch with me. I ain't going to make a spreadsheet about you too right?" 
Sure, this is one of my best reply. We reject some of these things but the fact is that I CAN get you a maid to do all the above or you can just leave it there where I will do it later but CAN you accept that I get a replacement and do the person things you do not want to do. If this is the comparison, sure. Let's make a fair trade. I'll get a maid too.

I am not saying that as a wife you owe it to your man that you HAVE to give them sex every damn time they demand it but I am saying that yes, we understand where you are coming from (or not coming at all) but the main thing is sex is something very intimate. With it, couples can get so much closer. Without it, man being rejected from it, it can be very depressing and it makes a man feel unwanted, shitty and even angry. Yes, to some it is a need like hunger. Like I always say "when you are hungry you eat and when you are horny you fuck" but the sad truth is that we can't do that. It's really not easy for man to be all faithful if all he do is bumping into dead-end over and over again when there's a buffet out there.

Let me explain myself again, I am not saying that a successful marriage means the wife has to use sex to keep their husband but we can't deny the fact that most relationship break down starts from bad sex life.

Breaking down the pros and cons, why can't woman "give-in" (like literally) to a man for that few minutes? Or if you are lucky (or unlucky) all you need is few seconds of your life.

I know the whole "woman is an animal about feelings" thing and "really not in the mood" so are you saying that those feelings you had years ago before marriage is all gone the moment he puts a ring on you? If that's the case, how can we blame the fact that man doesn't want to put a ring on you and wants to be a player? Is it a case of being complacent once you are marriage?

I am not saying I am absolutely right, you can call me a MCP or anything but I state my point clear, if it's a few minutes of your time and effort and save a life time of misery and enjoys a happy love and wedding life, what is stopping you? I hope I don't offend any woman with this but man HAS emotions too. Like it or not, offended or not, this is what I'm writing on the man's point of view.

I will leave you with this quote from a very smart man...
Enjoy the little things in life. But I hope it's not THAT little in your case.
P.S. Man, don't you just hate it that your wife you objectify you like a baby making machine and only ask you to have sex because the doctor say tonight is a good night to make a baby? What? You think we are just a baby making machine to you? Where did all the impromptu and romance go now hur hur hur??

So I was previously talking about this show call Obsessed. In short it's about a forbidden love story and falling in love with someone that you shouldn't.

One of my favourite scene - i mean beside the sex scene.
On top of watching the show we actually also get to meet Mr.Song in person. I hear a lot of water sound the moment he opened his mouth and said hi in korean. If you get what I mean.

About The Show

To be honest, the show is very slow pace and I believe that is because they want you to feel the emotions but if you had a long day at work, this might not be the show you wish to watch.

The show is set in 1969 during the Vietnam war and as someone from the modern day, one might find it a little hard to digest some of their action. Like why is it "Illegal to be dancing" or even wearing a bare back dress.

But I guess the strong message in this show is about the love.

Forbidden Love

How much are you willing to sacrifice for love? How pain is forbidden love? It might not be as painful in current times because people cheat, people divorce and people have multiple lovers. I'm not saying it's a good practice but with the option being so easily available to chase the "real love", will we ever know what/who is your real love? People had to "make do" with who they had in olden days because divorce is a taboo and it makes fighting for real love so much more romantic isn't it?

What if you are married to your "perfect" wife/husband but years down the road and you bump into a "more perfect" lady/man? People grow, people change and same goes to relationship and feelings but how many times can such scenario happen and how many "more perfect" can we meet?

She was my THE one in 2006 wearing her Prada.

And she came along in 2011 with Jars of Heart.

She came into my life in 2012 with Spiderman

My 90s Ex love from F.R.I.E.N.D.S come back even hotter...
Her attitude beats all these other woman.

Would you leave or would you stay?

How would you know which battle is worth fighting for?

What if your ex become hotter and the one you left with got fat?

I guess you do not know until you find out...

The Sex Scenes 

What can I say? There were 3 sex scenes in total and one hotter than the other. Both the main leads' body were amazing. I wish I could tell you in detail or even show you but I guess you need to have that build up. Go watch the show! I mean if you can't wait there's always google.

I mean I've watched porn, the usual making out scene but r21 still has it magic on me. When both actor and actresses are naked, I assume they are not really having sex so where does the guy hide his hard on? And when those scene where he's suppose to be banging the lady.. Where is he rubbing it?

So of course I asked Google and I get to Reddit. For your extra reading - Do actors really have sex in sex scenes?

Final Verdict

Go watch it if you are intrigued by the storyline and enjoy a melodrama kinda movie. If it's just the sex scene you are looking forward to, you might find the long wait not worth it.

P.S. Funny enough, I didn't recognised Song Seung Heon until.. 

SO IT'S HIM!! Told you I'm not into K Drama liao but this was one of the 1st I kinda saw a little.

If you are unaware, Sun Yanzi is "back", doing her tour and also had a new album - Kepler.

Sun Yanzi Kepler Singapore Opening Act: Image Credit: TODAY Online.
Kepler is actually the last name of a German mathematician, astronomer, and astrologer. Not too sure if it's the real story behind it but this album's of her has some link with stars and what not too. I guess that's the theme? Not one of those guys who follows all the back stories. 

Anyway, within this new album, this is my favourite song: 尚好的青春


作詞:潘協慶 (潘美辰's Brother)

尚好的青春都是你 再遙遠都跟隨你
若滂沱大雨 不曾見證 海角相偎依

尚好的青春都是你 沒有片刻不想你
就算能真在對的時間 遇見對的你

風再疾再狂我也不放棄 願為你

不去想不去計量你的心 有多明白

就算給你的愛 石沉大海
青春飛逝就再 找不回來

尚好的青春都是你 沒有片刻不想你

風再疾再狂我也不放棄 願為你
就算你不會懂 也不會可惜


就算給你的愛 石沉大海
青春飛逝就再 找不回來

I guess I really love this song because of the lyrics. Typical emo Chinese love song. How much one is willing to sacrifice to love and wait for someone even if there is no return, even if the other party is unaware. And my favourite line has to be, 

在對的時間 遇見對的你

Timing can be a bitch. Meeting the wrong version of you at the wrong timing can mean a whole new different story for anyone.

Do you like Magic? (If you do, stay tuned as I am giving some tickets to a really awesome magic show.)

You might not know but my bro - Barney Stinson is actually a magician.
When we talk about Magic we will talk about David Blaine right?

My very 1st impression of David Blaine would be his floating trick as well as how everyone was trying to crack his "trick".

The impressive part of magic and/or trick to me is that breaking it is no big deal because that is simply reversing engineering of a well plot plan but what about you coming out with a good plan and at the same time executing it and impressing everyone?

It takes hours, days, weeks and even months of practice!

So what if you know the trick? Can you do the same thing or can you even see what happened there?

If you can't see it clearly what about seeing it live in Singapore?


And you can see him in person! For more information check out

To be honest I am not the biggest fan of anything Korean, I mean besides these 3 things,

Especially this rice cake thing. Image from:http://aeriskitchen.com/
Running Man
My fav is Gary! Image from: http://zilpasilas.com/
And of course, last but not least - Her!
I can look at this gif 10,000 times and still feel so happy.

To be honest I was quite excited when I got an invite to catch the show 'Obsessed" (despite the fact that I've mentioned how I am not the biggest fan of anything Korean) by Song Seung Heon 宋承宪, best known for his TV dramas such as AUTUMN IN MY HEART, MY PRINCESS and DR. JIN which I obviously do not know but I copied and paste from the release. 

So why am I blogging about this? 

I actually read the story and it is an r(a) show it's about this forbidden love affair. Yes! I love all these love story movies. (Yeah, big man, beer and tattoo but I'm actually a little woman inside. )

Have you ever fall in love with anyone that you know you can't, you shouldn't but you still did?

Yes, timing is a bitch.
If you haven't felt that before, congratulations because that is not a good feeling and we all know the ending is always the same, people getting hurt.

Anyway, here's the trailer:

Can't wait to see how this unfold and if you are interested as I am, don't forget to watch the show this coming 31st and also stay tuned to my blog as I will be doing a review after I watched it on 25th July.

Song Seung Heong in Singapore

And for those of you who are a fan of KDrama and Mr. Song, don't forget to catch him this coming 25th July!

Mr.Smith, I know you all love me many many also but sorry I'm married... 

Thursday, July 17, 2014

Growing up in neighbourhood left me with a mouth full of bad taste when it komes to experience with anyone from the other race. I kan't say it's because they are rowdy or was it because of difference in culture but I guess I have to kredit it to our kommunication or the lack of it in fact.

I wasn't the most well spoken kid in school when it komes to English speaking and from my memory I was pretty sure they can't speak much mandarin either and I guess that's where miscommunication and unhappiness were developed.

I hardly have any Malay friends even until today but I was very lucky that I found my favourite Malay Kakak at the most unexpected place - work.

To be honest I do love some things about our Malay friends, their food and of kourse all the minahs minahs. (malay chicks in my understanding)

I've no klue who are they. Picture from Google Search - Minahs. But pretty hot right? Regret, never had a malay minah girl friend.
Bazaar at Geylang Serai

So when my ex-colleagues told me they were going to Geylang Serai Bazaar I was pretty excited cause I was pretty sure I kan have some Malay food and also fest my eyes with some minahs. Of course also have a good time gathering with my ex-colleagues.

#TeamMinah with Mel, Squid and my favourite Wad Da Fad~  A bit different from the minahs above but still can. :p

One thing we have to know about the Geylang Serai Bazaar is that it is the mother of all bazaar. You kan find anything you kan imagine and you kan't imagine. You will also see people selling funny things like toilet bowls and also kar. Other than that it would be the more normal stuff like food, karpet, kurtains and lights! 

Seriously, who needs Zouk when you have lights like this in Geylang?

So besides the lightings and all I guess the highlight has to be these Malay Kuay Kuay. It feels like Chinese New Year but only better because their Kuay Kuays are really sweet and the Makcik (Malay Aunties) are really very warm. I mean as long as you can speak or understand Malay. That's one thing that turns me off sometimes. Some of these aunties kouldn't speak English which is why we need Minah friends! YAY!

Because we can!
Just sample only. Free lah sia! 
Kookies that looks like donut! Pretty much. 
And you know how we chinese gives these red packet thing for kids during CNY? They have something similar too but look at those designs! POWER!

"Malay Red Packet" - Cantik!
Pretty Lighting is Pretty~ 
The reason why it is the mother of all bazaar is because it's really huge, it's so huge it is like few bus stop worth of shops and I heard each of these stall can Kost you up to $10,000 SGD a month. W-O-A-H! 

Being mother of all bazaars, they have seats by the road side that you can sit around and lepak. Or if it ain't really your style you can always check out koffee shop around the area!

It was a random meet up indeed but it sure was fun. It's always fun with these friends. Why? Is it because we kommunicated better as kompared to how I did when I was a kid or is it because we are way more open minded than everyone else? I wouldn't say we are geniuses but I would say we take life easier. We do not go all sensitive and on and on about how you are insulting my race or aku religion like people online. We laugh at each other's kulture and at the same time learn from it. I am glad I have Fadilah as a friend, I've learn many malay words and also about their kulture while we laughed at it. hahaha.

Like Rachie's best joke - "You know why the Malay guys go to Mosques on Fridays? Because Thanks God It's Friday." You have to admit this is pretty funny.

kan't wait for our next adventure together!

I am Abang Smith, people on the internet, take a chill pill lah siol...

Where is the love? That's what I am asking. Considering the fact that I am a heavy user of the internet, this thing is seriously getting into me and I'm really feeling a little painful to be online reading articles or just surfing through Facebook or Twitter.

I mean like we all agree that everything has pros and cons just like ying and yang but is our balance a little bit lope sided these days? As technology zoom pass us, it is pretty much a gift. We shrink the world, information get sent across the world so much easier and faster. Talents like Justin Bieber get to fame so much more easier. People gotten a voice, people no longer need main stream media to speak for themselves, everyone can speak for themselves and everyone can defend themselves.

I always say,
"everyone has a voice but the problem is not everyone has a brain." 

We must understand a fact that everybody has their own ideas and thoughts for everything. I can call myself an idealist and so do you but our ideal situation might not be the same. The truth about differences is that everybody is different, we do not need to make everyone think like you. 

This is one thing that people fail to understand thus having so many pointless online arguments.

You can fight for your right and I can fight for mine but I do not see the need to change another person or even trying to prove the other party wrong.

I am pro LGBT... you are not. done. We do not need to go on to insult people who pro LGBT are blah blah blah and people who are against LGBT are blah blah blah. As much as we point fingers and say that people who are against something are narrow minded, the fact is that so are we when we are doing that. If we are really open minded, we will understand the fact that why some people cannot accept certain thing. It just happens. This is how the world works.

I am feeling too much negativity on the social web especially locally these days. We complain about CPF, we complains about SMRT, STB, HDB, ERP, COE and to join the rank and in fact I must say this is one of the longest running rage online ever - NLB.

This is so painful that I do not even wish to weight in my thoughts because it has been overly discussed over the last weeks and I really tired and whatever I want to talk about should probably be written by others already.

Yes, I would say some "good" did come along with such happenings because some people get more informed and the situation has created more awareness. Some people made some good points and some didn't. But the thing is did they achieve what they want? In fact more and more books are getting pulled out isn't it? The fact is that it's not just about a book or two, it's about the principle of it. Yes I hear this loud and learn.

I feel like very often people are abusing the fact that they have "a voice" and they are fighting for the sake for the fighting. They are fighting for things that has been there for the longest time but they just wish to be heard and they feel the need to satisfy that need of theirs.

Racist, Gender, Animal Abuse, Money, Gahment and everything else. It's just too much..

Ya ya, let's fight for every smallest thing. 
Is it really necessary?

I like this article I saw on Facebook. Full of satire and yeah.. just read it.  By Joshua Chiang: (I think, I saw it on his FB which is shared by a friend)

It's time we colour-blind people stand up against the outright discrimination against us by almost all nations of the world. That's right, we're talking about how we have been unable to drive due to traffic lights having colours many of us can't tell apart!

We are thus organising a Green Dot event to protest this social injustice. We have chosen green as our official colour because red-green colour deficiency is the most common among all colour deficiencies, and green is also the colour that says 'go' in most traffic systems.

There will be speeches and color-guessing games based on the Ishihara charts and then we will form a giant GREEN DOT in the centre of the venue. Please come dressed in GREEN; if you don't know what green looks like, see the logo attached.

But because of things like these, more and more issues are surfacing isn't it? I guess sometimes the best control is no control. There are things in life that we really need things to move along as it should be.

Or maybe it's just me. Like I'm the typical type of fans if I support a band I will probably listen to your songs and maybe buy your albums but if you ask me about joining fan club, making banner, waiting for you at the airport or even tail gating you when you are in town, nah. But that doesn't means I do not support you, I do, I do it with action and action I think it's enough.

I am not saying that all of you should be like me - a silent supporter but I am saying that if you are one of those with a course, go ahead and do it. I am not stopping you, I do not need you to stop, I do not need you to agree with me but I am just saying I am so tired of your online action.

Despite of all the angry read online, I found this very interesting article:

My son wears dress but that's okay with me.

Whatever the case is, I wish you guys happy!
