Went to Momo on Thursday. Was quite cool cos the entry age is normally 23 for guys, 21 for girls... Clubbing is one big fat waste of time and money... It seems cool at first to tell everyone ur going clubbing, so that you seem like one of the "cool" people who chiong... But chionging is actually bad for you.
1. You get smoked out during clubbing... Increased risk of pulmonary diseases
2. It costs a LOT. Thanks Gerald! for buying 2 jugs of Bourbon Coke, which 4 of us proceeded to drink Haha! Will miss u lots when u go Canadian! But it cost like $35.
3. Unless you're Aston, no one really gets laid after clubbing... Especially if you look like me. Haha!

Saw some of the UK bound ppl there (duh it's called UK Bound) like muscular Colin and Agnes Lim (btw the last guy was Yu Wei)... LSE Terence had flown off to have his long holiday... My Edinburgh ppl all pang seh me hahaha... Cos the medicine girls don't club, and the guys wouldn't be clubbing without the girls right? So it's just me going cos Ling Ching invited me... haha Thanks=)!

MoMo would be nicer if the dark dance room was more filled with people. As it was, only a small square near the bar was filled with people, mostly those going to the UK either for first years or second... But there's a second compartment that Agnes didn't see (haha!) that has a live band inside... It's equally smoky and unhealthy, but the interesting thing is that there's a live band... Gerald requested for "Superman" by Three Doors Down (i think), to which the stupid singer was like... erm we'll play ur song later... stupid guy he just didn't know how to play it... But have to give him credit for his showmanship...

After that, went to some place off Clarke Quay to chill until 6 when the mrts and buses restart... cos i was quite broke and Teng Soon also haha... I'll really miss the times when we'd just sit at some scenic place and chill... Teng Soon dude i hope u'll realise money isn't everything... I know if u read my blog u'll probably come and flame me or something... But i hope 10 years down the road when I come back for a visit we can still meet up with Yu Wei and Weili and whoever else and sit along the Singapore River and throw stones into it to see who can throw the furthest... which is what we did that night... Enjoyed talking cok to them also...Talking about life, school, the future, etc... it's these outings that I'll cherish the longest. Along with eating Bak Chor Mee.

Sunday I went for the last part of this talk by this guy that Teng Soon brought me to.. He's supposed to be some network marketing genius... But all i saw was like a guy who knows how to use his "reputation" to make people idolise him... a roaring ah beng who can't speak for nuts... People just cling to his every word... I admit I too was sort of lured into it... But i realised that he's just selling hope that somehow, by attending his superlong talk, the people listening will become rich. DREAM ON. I had hoped to go to East Coast with my friends, but this stupid guy took so long just to get his basic points across that it was 7 plus when i told Teng Soon i wanted to leave... he's seemingly drawn into this whole thing as well... The guy was darn irritating lah... he's some crass rude idiot... and he scolds people for no reason, but for some reason the whole audience just laughs... and people stand on their seats and sing along as he wastes their time singing stupid karaoke songs... not as if u sing along so enthusiastically money will just drop from the sky for u... Teng Soon said u won't be able to sleep during his lectures... I nearly did, barring the fact that Teng Soon was nice enough to translate some of the stuff he said for me. I appreaciate your getting the ticket for me for free=) and inviting me and translating for me... But i guess i just think this guy's not worth listening to.

My dad told me don't waste my time going to these talks... If they really knew how to invest in stocks and shares they wouldn't be talking to you... Which is true. Teng Soon said it's cos this guy loves to educate people to make money. Of course u'll love educating people if all u do is shout at them and they obediently reply "shi4" or "dong3" at every stupid thing u say... like his stock tips were like pulled from the sky and the audience just ate it up like mindless NSFs... maybe army should try doing this system... reward $1 per obedient answer... He's just seeking to feel important, and he gets it from these seminars... What he has to say I didn't think was very new... My dad's very wise sometimes, I realise. He said might as well read from the book by Peter Lynch, who made all his money in stocks, than listen to a network marketer boast about his stocks... The guy never said how much he earned from them anyway... And people of his character as far as i can see, shouldn't really be playing stocks...

Teng Soon, I know you're trying to intro me to a whole new world, and I know you're a real true-as-steel friend who wants to help... But I don't think this "new world" is something I want to get into if the members of it are like the guy speaking. I hope you understand that as your friend, I'm advocating extreme caution here.

The Bible's teaching is really true. It is impossible to serve both God and money. You cannot serve two masters... I'm not advocating foolishly spending, cos that's misusing the funds that God has entrusted to your stewardship. I'm just saying that if you idolise money so much, like what the speaker was suggesting the people do, then it's the saddest thing because you leave no room for God to work, which is the most important thing EVER.

"What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, but lose his soul?"

Now that my air tickets have been settled, I'm looking forward to the 23rd of September with a mix of apprehension and excitement... Going to fly through Frankfurt... On the one hand, it means i ORD LOH!!! practically cos when i come back it's OFF CLEARING time... but it means i start my overseas stint... I have to step out of my comfort zone and plunge into the sea... It's just 3 weeks more... Sigh.

I'll miss everyone!!

But not those who're trying to screw up my ORD plans.
