hey ho, let's go

Its been a while since my last entry...yeah i'm a lazy bum...(whatever)
Thankfully, its the weekend yet again and i get to see more of my bed...actually its not really the truth. I find that i tend to spend even lesser time on my bed on weekends than on weekdays, cos i wanna make sure i really spend my every waking minute doing things i couldn't do on a weekday. I'm a walking contradiction i guess. More time to rest means more time to use up for activities, which makes me more tired and in need of, what else, more rest.

But, you may ask(yes, all 5 of u), why do i loathe thee weekday? Well, actually, loathe will be too strong a word. My to-and-fro work travelling does have some nice "perspective" to it. i'm an frickin' optimist:total travelling time takes up 3hour plus. I tend to observe human quirks a little more each passing day.

Everyday i take the public bus to my workplace...and without fail i end up near the rear of the queue each time, sometimes even further back if i deem too lazy to set off earlier from home. Well, theres nothing surprising about q-ing for buses, even ants do it(i seriously have no idea where that phrase came from). But each day, i notice this other queue ending up not far from mine. I can never see the start of the queue, and i can't figure out where it leads to judging from the people's attire (you know how it means white-collar jobs from those in shirts/ties/suit and blue-collar means tees/dirty-loose-jeans showing off bum-crack). SO the investigator(read:busybody) in me decides to take a little detour one day,and walked past the start of the queue... and when i saw what i saw(sorry for bad english), i was lost for words for a minute and then i smiled. Seriously, it would've raised a tattoed eye-brow or two overseas, but its the norm in Singapore: those people were queueing for free newspapers, dutifully handed out by this old man(one per person mind you, any more and you have to queue again)

Thanks for reading my idle banter thus far...anyways, queues aren't really that bad, trouble only starts when there aren't any, like when kids start queueing for kicks and u have to rope in bouncers, and u still get a riot...sheesh

chocolates melt in pockets
Did i mention i take the train besides the public bus to work? Yeah my daily travels should be named Planes,Trains and Automobiles....
Funny thing happened yesterday as i was taking the train back home. I was listening to the radio on my handphone, blasting techno dance music to keep myself from dozing off(thank u WKR91.3FM) and this teenage kid takes the seat beside me. As i gaze upon my opposite neighbour trying not to show too much interest lest he thinks i'm gay (what else can one do except gawk?), i noticed at the corner of my eye the kid trying to get comfy and bring out his phone from his front pant pocket. He succeeded after a while(it was tight jeans), but he immediately froze and stared at his phone...i wondered why: dead batt? porno message from a guy? wrong phone? tic-tac dispenser? i turned my head....stuck upon the display window of his Nokia was a glob of chocolatey mess. I stifled a chuckle and looked away as the kid looked around to make sure no one saw it. He instinctively stuck his hand back into the pocket. His delayed reaction in bringing it back out confirms the location of the culprit. Out came a wrapper and card-holder with a similar chocolate signature. By now, i was refraining myself from saying "oh man" and laughing out loud, but theres more. Little-Lost-kid proceeds to do what every kid will do....he smelt the chocolate. Damn, what was he thinking? CSI? trying to find out who/what/when did the chocolate happen onto the scene of the crime?
And what happened after? after looking around for some tissues which he doesn't have, he decides to get off the train and "take care" of the situation. Me? i just pretended not to notice and enjoy my techno, with a packet full of tissue in my bag..Hey , he didn't ask me!

Speaking of sweets...was pretty bored the other day (seems like i'm bored every other day) took a sequence of my little "fall guy" or girl...wateva
