I'm only 21... not 41!!

Discovered alcohol when I was 17
We went on our first holiday alone when we were 20


Started clubbing when we were 18

I club an average 2 a year only

Last year, around this time, I was a bad girl. I repented and stayed good for almost one whole year but somehow, people do not appreciate me. I really need to get away from my life. I’m sick of being responsible, boring, good, studious Michelle.

I’m still too young to be a responsible person. I’ve been too busy with my business, work, etc that I rarely find time to be my age. While everyone else goes clubbing, hanging out with their friends, misbehaving, making mistakes, I’m baking, doing chores, gardening, doing other people’s assignment.

Somehow, I’m sick and tired of all these. I’m tired of being me and I just want to make my mistakes and learn from it. I want spontaneity in my life. I want to be able to just be happy. I may seem happy but I’m not. Why does everyone think I have the perfect life? Good job, good university, good prospects but I just want to be able to enjoy my life!!

I’m so frustrated that ever since young, I was the responsible one. I handle and run everything. I never really did have a life all my friends had. I’m not saying that I want to be a wild party animal but at least let me act my age.

Like what Shi Nee said, “I’m glad we didn’t grow up so fast, There’s like certain things that you discover only at certain ages” in this context, she meant that we are supposed to experience different things at different age. For example, we only started drinking when we were 17, clubbing when we were 18, smoked when we were 19 and went on a holiday alone when we were 20.

On average, I only club 2 a year and I turn down an average of 50 clubbing invites a year!! This is true. The most I do is to grab some beers with Shi Nee and attend friend’s birthday parties and that’s about it. I’m just counting down the days till I can run away or go on a holiday to Penang. I don’t want to face the world and its expectations.

Besides that, guys have always been my lowest priority and now all the guys are driving me crazy!! I don’t get them anymore, they confuse me and I just don’t want to face them right now. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not PMS-ing, I’m just so damn frustrated that I NEED to get away from everyone. I just want them to leave me alone and let me be alone for awhile.

At this point in time, everyone seems to annoy me and I’m trying EXTREMELY HARD to be nice. If I don’t leave, I’m so going to have a mental break down. I’ll be normal when I get back and I can’t wait to go to Aussie next year to explore a new place all on my own.

How to Keep A Guy for More Than 10 Days

I know that some of you might think that “Who the hell is Michelle to write about this? She’s a single girl and kinda screwed up in the relationship dept!!” I know I’m better qualified to write about policy and the current Hamas/Gaza situation but I prefer helping others through my experiences. One of my notable experiences is being a cool girlfriend!! (Sometimes I’m too cool, they think I don’t care!)

I discovered that I enjoy helping other since I joined http://www.scribd.com/ since then; I’ve been actively contributing to their database of intellectual articles. One of my previous assignments on globalization was a firm favorite and has the record view of 400 over.

My previous article was to help guys to get a girlfriend and this is for girls on how to keep their boyfriends/ keep guys coming back for more. (Not sexually! That is The Mink’s area of expertise... not mine!)

Well, the first thing to be a cool gf is to be a gf. Meaning, you have to know your role in your bf’s life. That means, it’s not your job to nag him or scold him or humiliate him. You are his gf NOT his MOTHER!! So, ACT like one!

Secondly, be supportive. So what if he doesn’t feel like going for his exams, your job is to tell him the consequences and be supportive. NO MATTER WHAT! Well, you have to be reasonable. Obviously, you do not support him if he wants to arson someone house or steal something!!

Thirdly, do not take advantage of him. He’s your boyfriend, not your ATM, driver, office boy or kuli!! Have some dignity and give him some credit. I mean, if he’s helping you to run some errands, that’s ok. You do not make use of him. There’s a limit.

Fourthly, you need to give him some space. DO NOT INTERROGATE that poor fellow just because he was 5 minutes late or if he cancelled on you. I’m sure you have friends or other things to do. Guys need their space and you just have to respect that.

Fifth, guys watch porn. It’s normal and if you get angry when you find out, you’re just an unreasonable bitch! If you forbid your guy to watch porn, then they have every right to forbid you from talking on your phone or shopping.

Sixth, if your guy smokes or drinks, just be thankful that he’s not a robber or a murderer. Unless he’s your husband, then by all means, go ahead and make him quit.

Seventh, it’s ok that he checks other girls out. Just as long as you don’t catch him doing it! Like the porn issue, it’s embedded in their DNA to look at beautiful girls, but that doesn’t mean that he wants to be with them. How many times we admire shoes or clothes that we don not buy? If you can’t handle it, you’re just insecure.

Eighth, let him make his own choice. If he doesn’t want to hang out with your girlfriends, don’t force him. Would you rather him be happy or hang out with your friends and he secretly resents you?

Ninth, trust his decisions and him. If you don’t then just break up because you need to be able to trust a person that you’re with. By trusting him, you’ll be able to trust his decisions and you won’t argue so much.

Tenth, be understanding. Don’t be a jealous, insecure and clingy girlfriend. NO ONE likes people like that!!

Phuket, Thailand 2008

Patong in the day where it's a road.

Patong at night where they close off the road EVERY NIGHT!! See all the discotheque and bars line the road.

I decided to soothe my scorched body with some parasailing!! Refreshing to say the least!


I've always been a fan of the Thai culture and I especially love speaking in their language!! They often mistake me for a Thai khun!!


I love this elephant!! it's so sweet!!! But i do not condone the use of animals for profit!! A 30 mins ride on Jumbo here will cost you 800baht!! Petting him is sufficient!


My camera doesn't have a wide angle to capture the beauty of the beach. Evn if you had one, it'll be impossible!! Evn my eyes can't take in enough!!


This is one hot place!! The have to be one of the best advertisers!!

While I thought Bangkok was nice, Phuket was “cielo” which means heaven in Spanish!! The water was aquamarine as it washed and crashed into the beautiful white sand. Even a wide camera lenses will not be able to capture the beautiful hilltop surroundings, the simple jetty and the boats like little dots on the horizon.

Patong is a paradise. If you’re a sinner like me you’ll enjoy the alcohol, trannies (transvestites), sex and cigarettes. The motto of Patong is “EVERYTHING GOES!!” and that includes the ice cream. Men walk Patong in their skimpy underwears, flaunting their beer bellies while women dressed in their bikinis or some beautiful smocked dresses!

Patong may be dodgy with their sex, drugs and alcohol; it’s also a crazy place!! You can dance in your under wear on the streets and they salute you or you can just do any stupid, crazy, out of this world things and you’re normal!! It may take a few hours to adjust to the many ‘farangs’ (Westerners) dragging local dead fishes (they looked as if they got gang banged by 10 men!) around. It’s a place where sex and money rules!

Patong is also a little bit of NY where there are so many shops catering to tourists from Germany, France, America, Australia, Norway and Sweden. Little ‘taverns’ that specializes in many international dishes such as bratwurst, snitzel, fajita and etc.

Shi Nee and The Mink may argue that the place is crowded with my type of meat; old, white meat and even though I receive compliments, words come cheap and I’m more than just some cheap Patong girl!!

The nights on the other hand are filled with bar top dancing, poll dancing and tiger shows! And on some special days, you can even catch a real live boxing match!! Advertising are out of this world with live boxing match ON TOP of a little truck across town with loud blaring music. Club advertisements are slightly subtle with loud window shattering (literally!) music being blasted all across town at any time of the day!!

As a policy student, Patong has seriously lost its culture. This is the effects of globalization and the only things they have left are their language. They were too busy adapting the foreigner’s culture that they have seriously forgotten their own!

As I’m writing this, I’m seated between a Greek and a British contemplating whether I should go parasailing. I see people lugging around stuff to sell, little Patong clothed dogs playing by the sea as the soothing sea breeze washed over me. The sun is too hot as I’m already scorched. That parasailing activity sound real good!! Like the tee shirt one tourist was wearing; Good guys go to heaven, bad guys go to Patong!!

How to Get a Girl in 10 Days

This post is dedicated to my NOOB brother: Darrell Ken!

I have not watched nor read Twilight, I think Edward Cullen is over-rated and I don’t get why all the girls are gushing about Bella’s and Edward’s love. To me, Twilight is so juvenile and would probably appeal to teenage girls.

However, there is one thing which I really admire is the gentleness of Edward despite being a vampire. This posts is a well meaning piece for guys on “How to Get a Girl in 10 Days!” and my next piece will be for the girls on “How to Make a Guy stay for more than 10 Days!!”

Yes, back in the days I’ve lost my heart to some scruffy bad boys such as Cole (played by Julian McMahon in Charmed) and now Chuck Bass (played by Ed Westwick in Gossip Girl) but I’m more attracted to guys that are chivalrous and really knows how to treat a woman.

“To really love a woman
to understand her
you’ve got to know whats deep inside
hear every thought see every dream
and give her wings when she wants to fly
and when you find yourself lying helpless in her arms
You know you really love a woman
you’ve gotta breath her
and really taste her
until you can feel her in your blood” - Bryan Adams (Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman)

Call me old fashion but a girl just can’t resist old fashioned chivalry. A guy who says that girls are complicated clearly wasn’t raised well. Those guys make up 90% of our community nowadays. They can be found in colleges, malls and anywhere else you can think of.

It’s not the parent’s fault by as my friend MA once said, “It’s the Westernized ideology that objectifies women” Women are to be loved and appreciated and I never forget what he said until today.

Doing little things such as sms-ing or calling her when she’s down, opening doors for her and bringing lunch for her when you know she’s busy. I know that feminist might argue that its discrimination but come on, get a life!! Sometimes, these feminist have no idea what they even want.

They fight for equality and yet expect a guy to pay for dates and all and when a guy does the little things like opening doors; they say that the guy wants to be “in control”. I’m not a fan of feminist when it comes to etiquette. The most I support feminist would be in equality in the workplace.

When a guy opens the door, it’s not that he wants to be in control, he just wants to be seem chivalrous and considerate. Another thing that guys fail to do is to remember what girls say!! It’s frustrating and to a girl, you just seem ignorant and you don’t care!!

This is simple, if a girl mentions to you a few weeks back that she’ll be having an exam in 2 weeks; wish her good luck in the morning!! It’s a simple gesture and it goes a long waaaay!!

Another thing is, if you’re interested in a girl, you DO NOT treat her like a friend, use every opportunity to treat her better than a friend. For example, if she’s busy, you can always bring some sandwiches to her.

In the end of the day, it’s pretty simple to get a girl. Oh the most important thing is to TELL HER!!! Girls are still humans and they’re not mind readers. You don’t expect a girl to know how you feel if you don’t tell her!! Besides, you’re a psychotic if you started treating her as your girlfriend when you NEVER told her how you felt!!

As my closing, I’m going to quote John Mayer, “It’s better to say too much, than never to say what you need to say again, say what you need to say”
