Shopping Day

Well, how's everyone been. It seems my blog is turning into my daily diary lol but I think everyone maybe find that more interesting than my daily rambles :P

Anyway, today was a rare day off for me and I spent it productively... sort of productively... Had morning tea (dim sum or 早茶) with a friend. Food was not extremely outstanding but the waitresses were bwhahaha!

After that, I decide to go shopping. I had absolutely no money so it was kind of a day wasted (too much drugs for me lol j/k). But as I sat on one of the benches waiting for the bus, I saw this couple. One was a sort of chubby girl and the other, a sort of tall Indonesian dude. As I sat there, I observed one interesting thing. Everytime a pretty girl came by, his eyes would wander and linger on the girl. The girl of course, noticed nothing and continued to display her affections for him.

I sat there laughing to myself... I then began to think... "Buddy, if you are not satisfied with what you have got, then why continue... It's going to end up with disappointment for the girl so why don't you stop before it's too late".

It's better to really start a relationship when both are fully satisfied with each other's physical appearance first isn't it? That way, any break ups that may occur is a result of intrinsic incompatibility rather than these ahhh trivial things... (well, sort of trivial if you consider the bigger picture). Ok, enough about this stuff.

University will be starting again in roughly one week so I think I will begin to blog less. I'll keep everyone informed of any major changes in my life (not that there is or will be in the near future lol unless you consider paintballing and diving exciting changes)... So please excuse my absence in anytime soon.

I'll still be reading all your blogs so keep up the hard work everyone!!

Regards and best wishes!


P.S. I read an interesting post today at Monday Morning Power. He is on my recommended list. The article is about the power of positive thinking. Interesting, go have a look!

that is funny, I see guys doing that all the time. But I also see women doing it. Physical attraction is important. I also find that after knowing someone longer, I find them more attractive physically when I am more attracted to them emotionally.

Zhu said...

University is starting already ? Wow... I'm always lost with southern hemisphere schedule I guess !

I haven't had dim sum in a while. I miss it. That and coconut bread are my favorite southern Chinese snacks :$

Physical attraction is important... there're always gonna stuffs you like less in your partner, but that's life ! The overall peronality and looks is like a package.

Amel's Realm said...

Yikes!!! Why you Indo guy!!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

I agree with Stepping Over the Junk...the more attached you are emotionally to someone, the more you find that person appealing. ;-D When I first saw my hubby's pic, I didn't think he was THAT sexy and all that. But now...*drool* LOL!!!

GOOD LUCK with uni!!! How much longer do you have to study at uni before you get a degree? Two or three years?

Jeff said...

I think people will always look. Some people will never be satisfied with the looks of their significant other no matter how great looking they are. Why? Because it is a re-run.

Max said...

Hey Shan!

lol ahaaaa....looking at the waitresses, huh?! Anyway, I like your rambling *poutting*! But I guess that this way, people can get to know you a little more :)!
Poor chubby girl: you're right, he should leave her! But you know, girls in that situation they pretend that they don't see their boyfriends looking at others...but they do notice and they feel hurt inside *nodding*!
I am not sure if physical appearance is that important for everybody, cause I see beautiful girls, over here in Portugal, with fat dudes (for real)!!! And vice-versa! And they seem happy to me...
I confess, that for me image matters: I don't feel attracted by bulging guys! But that's me...!

You are quite excused *bowing*! Just let us know when you really start :)! I want to wish you a nice "Rentrée" :)!


Shan said...

Stepping over the junk: Hmm, I think I might have to start noticing the girls too... But you are absolutely right, physical attraction must exist doesn't it? And yes, once you fall for someone, I guess physical attraction is kind of thrown out of the window, it's their soul that you want after isn't it? A dilemma indeed... Wouldn't it be better if we just kind of avoided people and stop us from falling for people... Less pain that way...

Zhu: Yeah, it starts in about 8 days for me... It should be an easy semester for me... Only 3 units with 2 that has exams, I'm going to use it well to life up my average. As yeah, my favorite is the chicken feet :P and again, yep, you gotta have the package haha

Amel: lol, calm, calm, I think he was Indo, not too sure :P And I have roughly 1 more year to go before I enter the depressing realm of job hunting and career building... *sigh* I don't think I can handle the depression, I might go do my masters lol!

Jeff: Mmmm, interesting... re-run... You would need a partner to really find true satisfaction wouldn't you... I feel if we can find that one, we can really find satisfication... spiritual enlightenment haha

Max: lol, yep, some pretty waitresses around indeed, but as for their brains, I am not quite sure :P

But I am glad people can still find happiness even though physical attraction is not as strong... that is probably better than the reverse..

And thanks for your warm wishes! I'll keep them to heart :D

Thanks for the comments everyone! I appreciate them very much!

Hey im new to this blogging and im looking to find an auidience maybe one of my blogs pertains to your every day interest:

princess said...

I heard someone whisper your name, but when I turned around to see who it was, I was alone. Then I realised it was my heart telling me that I miss you.

Shan said...

Princess: I have pretty much said everything I can say to you. The only thing I can say to you now is that everything is in your hands. You made a decision. It's up to you to stick to it or change it. But please, do one or the other because doing both is no good.

Choose two words: Ice cream or time. Think well...

Deadpoolite said...

I don't see why being with someone has to make you blind to the beauty surrounding you. You just have to be smart about it and do it in a way that you dont make your date feel shit really:)

Way to go Indonesian guy, keep the male flag up (until your girlfriend cuts your bal... off anyway, but till then you'll be good,lol)

Have a good start to your upcoming University year Shan!

Amel's Realm said...

Masters' degree, eh? Why not if you really want it?

Only one year left? GOOD, GOOD!!! ;-D GOOD LUCK then!

Amel's Realm said...


I've just tagged you with Blogging Tips meme.

Follow this link:

Shan said...

DP: I will keep that in mind. But as for the guy, I think it was a Indo guy :P
And thanks, I will certainly try my best for rest of this year!

Amel: Yeah, it'll be only two years and I'll only be 22-23 when I graduate. I guess plenty of time... I think... And thanks for the Blogging Meme, I'll check it out :D

Amel's Realm said...

Getting a Master's Degree at the age of 23? That's FAST!!!

Most Indo graduate from uni (only gaining a bachelor degree) when they are 22 he he he...

But isn't it better to get some working experiences first someplace else before pursuing the Master's Degree? At least some of my friends worked first for 2 years and then continued their ed to get their Master's Degree end when they come back to the working industry, they get such a HIGH salary due to the working experiences PLUS the Master's Degree.

However, dunno how it works in Oz though he he he...

Amel's Realm said...

Btw, I like this new layout!!! ;-D

princess said...

you made your own decision

Deadpoolite said...

I like the new layout! Much more easy going and soothing to the eye:)

Just one little thing I wanted to ask you to do if it is OK of course:

In your links list could you change "The Merc with a mouth is back" with "Deadpool's Laughing Den". No biggie really!

Shan said...

Amel: Thanks for the compliment! You are absolutely right, it would certainly be better that way...

And yeah, the new layout is or at least seems easier to read haha

DP: No problem, done!
