Viva La Resolutions

I've said earlier that I'm not making any resolutions for this year. But after a while, I decided to make one because I simply need it.

And my 2009 resolution is:

To wake up earlier everyday so I could reach the office on time.

So far I've failed numerous times. LOL. I'm not a morning person. But this morning I managed to do it and came to the office at 9 a.m. (I know that's late for most people but trust me, that's considered early in my place, because most of the times we came at 10 or even later).

Well, the main reason of my 'success' was because I had to finish some work and send it this morning. But hey, turns out I can do it. Hahah.

And over the last week, I've been looking at my friends' albums of Coldplay's Viva La Vida tour in Singapore recently, feeling so jealous and full of regrets of missing yet another opportunity of seeing them performing live.

Yes, another good opportunity -wasted, again. I was offered a free ticket during the X&Y concert a few years back by someone, which I had to refuse because I was so broke I couldn't even afford the plane ticket. This year I thought that I shouldn't go because, well, SGD is so high lately so it's better not to get myself broke afterwards.

BIG mistake.

To top up my jealousy, turned out there was Christian Lacroix 'The Costumier' exhibition at National Museum of Singapore around the same time. Argghhhh! Please, just kill me! Kill meee!!

Okay. So, I've made another resolution:

The next time Coldplay's coming down again for another concert in Singapore (most probably for their latest album), JUST STAB ME (or slap me or wank me -whatever!) if I don't hop into a plane A.S.A.P. to see them!!

And may this resolution be fulfilled.

Defining "Normal"

So I'm finally single again. Officially. After months of ambiguous status.

There isn't a real feeling of loss. Not anymore. I probably have gone through that feeling even before we agreed on saying, "It's over." Not much tears too, since I've used up most of it on the last few months.

Before, I looked single and felt single but I was still attached. Now I look single and feel single, and is really single.

Not much of a difference, eh?

I told one of my best friend today that I'm finally the new single in town. He congratulated me and I bet he was relieved to finally hear that. He told me that for once, he'd like to see me with a normal guy. Hopefully one who's going to be around when I need him.

I laughed it off and said, "Define 'normal'. That's rather relative, right? Just like 'nice' is relative."

"Yes. True. But just look around -that's what I would call normal. Heheheh."

Apparently he thought my exes are (mostly) abnormal. Then he carried on defining what would be 'normal' for me.

"One that's quite well accomplished, but still has the time to see his girlfriend."

"One that's quite well to do, so he could support his girlfriend's needs of certain liquid substances, and her urge to eat garnish at fancy restaurants."

"One that's fun and trusting, so he wouldn't try to keep his girlfriend away from her friends and of course from a certain charming chubby guy with a cap on." (that would be him -the chubby guy).

"One that's smart enough, but not cocky and condescending or acting like he's some sort of a superior breed like the Aryans and see others as the Dravidans of the society."

"Isn't that normal?"

I cracked out loud after what he said. The guy sure understands me a lot. Thank gawd for a buddy like him.

So any of you guys know any 'normal' guy around? Do give me a buzz or drop me a message. Meanwhile, I'll be mingling, flirting, and enjoying my singlehood until it's time to let it go again.

Cheers to that! And may the power of lychee martini be with me -as always.
