Hospital Visit Wednesday, 15 March 2006

Here I am sitting outside a café in a hospital. Needed a cuppa after sitting around at the ICU where a friend is after crashing right into a car.

The visitors’ room was full of people chatting and laughing. The weirdest thing was witnessing the happy faces and hearing their laughter while their friend/relative lie in ICU terribly sick. Have we become so desensitized to pain and suffering or have learnt to cope with them? While I do not wish that their love one succumb to their critical ailment but I can’t help and wonder if their tears would fall like water from an opened tap even when they laughed just minutes ago.

On a separate issue, I think a change is needed to my blog. Can’t wait till my exams are over… would love to run, gym and enjoy life again.

I think I finally know what I want in life. Not so much of the material aspects but in terms of relationships. Although I have been exhorting the values of a monogamous relationship, I did have my urges to have fun. But today, I think I finally realise that “the fun” didn’t matter much to me anymore. I guess I ought to find excitement and happiness where it really is.

Coming of Age of a Society Makes for Desperate Times? Wednesday, 8 March 2006

GB thinks so in his comments to my blog on Desperate Times. I think it isn’t so much of a society coming of age but rather that times are different and that morals are changing. Perhaps it is even perceived that law enforcement is not as strict as before? Maybe the newspapers are picking up on these sensational news in Singapore more than before? It’ll be sad if a society matures and evolves to a state where societal ills and vices are more rampant. If anything, I think it opens our eyes to the fact that there are a darker side to everything. It’s all around us really. It’s a matter of when and where things happen. And no, I never thought Britain was really unsafe, GB. If I may say so, I felt safer in the UK and parts of Germany than when I was in Paris.
