Ghost Rider

Ghost Rider!!... watched it. Although, like my friend said, it feels like two stories and two plots mashed together....

Thursday, February 15, 2007


Its been sometime since I blogged as I haven't switched on my computer for about a week or so. Many things have happened.... New friends were made, but sadly, some were lost.... Well, back to the blog topic....


A friend was telling me about a long word in a dictionary. Well, what can I say. Long words are intriguing.... we just cant get enough of it.

Remember Mary Poppins? There was a song with the word: “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”. The word is obviously not a real English word. However, there are real English words which are just as long. One example would be “Antidisestablishmentarianism”

There is even an hypothetical disease of the lungs, caused by inhaling mineral or metallic dust. The name of the disease is: “pneumonoultramicrosopicsilicovolcanoconiosis”

For the uninitiated, according to Wikipedia, hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia is the fear of long words...

The word itself is an irony.. as a person who has sesquippedaliophobia, would fear the word itself.

So after this post, I hope no one gets hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia!!

There are always somethings which is just paradoxical

Like the sentence on Wikipedia: “This sentence is false” (The liar paradox).

A paradox is an apparently true statement or group of statements that leads to a contradiction or a situation which defies intuition. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paradox)

There are many experiences that results in a paradoxical situation that one may not be able to describe or put in words. It just seems so awkward and sometimes confusing.

Another example would be: “If truth does not exist, the statement ‘truth does not exist’ is a truth, thereby proving itself incorrect.” (Nihilist paradox taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_paradoxes)

Sidetracking.. ok.. actually still on topic....recent events followed by a reflection lead to me to conclude with this quote....

“We have to (learn how to) Let Go in order to Hold On (to something)....” (GenSephyr)

Paradoxical? Ironical? But quite true if you think about it... Many of these quotes depends on how you see it, or from what “angle” you look at it.

(N.B. and disclaimer: If you find any quote here in this post anywhere else (which is recognized to have been said by any person long time ago) but not cited properly, ... inform me so I can do the relevant citation or changes to include proper citation to the correct person... but for now, I take credit for the last quote about Letting Go... )

Life's Like That

Yeah... Life's Just Like That.. the monotony of life is sometimes unbearable... Its school, work, pdp, work, and the cycle goes on. And in school we have to learn things like the Kreb Cycle, Calvin Cycle, not to mention Economic cycle (Circular Flow of Income) and trends...

Everything seems to be going in cycles or circles...

Nothings fair so far. Things aren't going right for the time being.. I really wonder if days are becoming shorter than the length of an ant. Its back from school and then a few hours and its 12am. Morning signals lack of sleep. 4-5 hours is hardly what is optimum recommended my professional psychiatrists and sleep analysts. I think if going by those sleep studies, I would have destroyed who knows how many brain cells already....

Running toward road run

My legs are aching like crazy again.... Ran 3.6km on Monday, Tuesday about 2.4km, Wednesday Bowling Training (footwork again), Thursday (today) 3.6km again... Tomorrow, well.. Bowling Training again...

3.6km is actually not that bad... other than the fact that it was an uphill run for a section.. took 22 minutes and 16 seconds today... Thats slow... I admit I walked abit, but that time still slow.. must improve although my legs were aching today even before I ran... the area behind my ankle is just screaming pain.

According to Mr Goh (a.k.a The person who calls us "army boy"...), he said that I was putting too much strain on the back of leg as its too tense when I run.... no wonder its driving me up the wall with the pain.

The 'O's and 'A's

'O' Level results according to Natalie, would be out next week... Anyway, good luck to all who are receiving their results.

(N.B: hey Nat.. You will do alright.. don't worry... =)

O.o... The post haven't end yet.. although "N.B." should come last in a letter.. but this is a blog... haha...

However, following that would be the 'A's and that'll be my turn and my classmates and the JC2s to start sweating in worry... Chinese and Project Work Results... Oh no... Hope there will be good news...

Just a quote

Guess like the quote of the week announced by Mr Liu (hey.. I pay attention during assembly you know...):

"The pessimist sees challenges in every opportunity, but the optimist sees opportunities in every challenge."
