the minli face?

over the years i’ve been getting alot of feedback about this face i do when i observe something silly or lame or kinda funny or childish or ridiculous.

i never really paid attention to it till i realised the sheer number of reviews ive been getting about it. cos all along, i thought i was subtle 😦 kinda, sorta. i dunno.

i guess not. if my friends are able to list down my various expressions.


anyway, here’re some pretty peekchas taken a while back.

MM Lee and SM Goh leaving the cabinet

“MM Lee’s email came hours after he and Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong issued a surprise 168-word statement on Saturday evening announcing that both senior politicians were leaving the Cabinet.

In a joint-email statement to the media, the two leaders and former Prime Minister said they have considered the “new political situation” and it’s time for a new generation to take the country forward.”–sm-goh-to-quit-cabinet.html
How I feel about MM Lee and SM Goh leaving the parliament:

MM Lee’s already 87 and it pains me to see him work so hard. All I want for him is to go home relac and sip liang cha. But im just worried about what will happen without his wisdom. I admire him so much and find him absolutely invaluable to singapore but i guess at the same time, i really just want him to go home and sip liang cha.

And as for SM Goh, its strange that just 2 months back i was at his dialogue session listening to him jovially talking breifly bout the elections, what PAP’s plans for Singapore were. and i was thinking wow this guy’s really tall and oddly tanned for a chinese dude. and suddenly now he’s resigning from the cabinet. maybe he feels a little discouraged at his recent shallow win  of 56.5%at marine parade GRC. its not his fault, its that jumpy little girl he had the misfortune of having on his team.

mother’s day 2011?

[does someone have new pretty blogskin?]

my paternal grandmother passed away 10 may 10 years ago. and my family always commemorated her death anniversary on mother’s day. i was never really close to my grandmother ( i thought she was a guy cos she din have hair. hey i was really young and stupid) but i looked forward to every mother’s day cos the family gets together and for the last 2 years, there was channie:)))

but for some strange reason it wasnt commemorated this year and i dont know why.

and so happen i had to write a short journal for my psych class the past week.

Is it appropriate to cry when loved ones die?

My first memory of a funeral was my paternal grandmother’s. I was 9 then. And as much as it pains me to say it, I had a lot of fun. It was probably one of my best childhood memories. The adults were chatting at the void deck, eating peanuts and my cousins and I ran around the neighborhood making bottle tanks, forming a music band and playing simon says. There wasn’t a tinge of sadness in the air, until the time came to cremate my grandmother’s body. Suddenly things got serious quick, and my relatives started weeping and crying out for their was only then that I started mirroring my relatives and teared a little.

There are several social decorums for everyday life. When someone loses their job, you comfort them. when someone gets promoted/ married/ becomes a parent, you congratulate them. but when someone loses their loved one, you drop everything and you go to their side. We can’t measure an appropriate response to grief, an emotion so poignant, it causes people to act out in different ways. Some people do things life affirming, some people do something impulsive. Some people wear their emotions on their sleeves, others choose to be more stoic. Some choose to laugh and chat with family and friends about good memories, others choose to cry. Andwe should let them do whatever they want to.

but anyway, it was mother’s day last sunday. and all i did was send a text to my mum. i was sick and kinda busy at the time. thinking bout it now, i wasnt even sure if the text went through. i didn’t even check with her or anything. if it didn’t she would have been so upset thinking i didnt care at all. why am i such an ass. why is it that as kids we’re able to block out the feelings of guilt we should be having for the way we treat our mothers?

i guess i’ll get my punishment when my kids treat me like crap. unless i force them to sing and dance for me every mother’s day. nono thats ridiculous. who would become a parent that does that.
