Human Nature

Why is it that we are always in awe for things that we dont have? A very difficult question isnt it. I used to think I wasnt going to be too excited if I come face to face with a celebrity, after all they were just doing their job arent they! But then when I did have a chance, I acted like a 5 year old kid! All excited, heart racing, feeling so ecstatic. The celebrity was just a TV actor but yet somehow I was drawn into the glamour of it.

Come to think of it now, I laugh at myself for acting so stupid. When I met this person at the airport, he probably was on a holiday and going back home. He was with his family and in fact he was in a argument with his wife. But I didnt see all that, I just saw him. All eyes, all heart!! I knew it was his private time but still I went up to him and spoke to him. He was kind enough to oblige but I guess I was wrong to do that. Hysteria!

Actually it took me a while to settle down and come back to normal. I feel funny abt this whole incident. Its like I didnt know I could do this. Anyways it was defintely an experience to remember.

New Year, New Beginnings

First, A very happy new year to all of you out there! I hope this new year ushers in lot of good things and happy occasions to remember for all of us.

Recently I have realized I can put on weight too... till now I had the good luck of maintaining a standard weight whatever food I eat. And also I was not used to fast food - burgers, fries, etc till I came to Singapore. Its a new experience for me to realize my clothes dont fit anymore, just 2-3 months after buying them. Initially I felt good about gaining a little weight cos I have been thin all my life, but now its getting out of hand. I really need to start watching my diet and also try and exercise. Ppl in S'pore are quiet health conscious and there's a lot you can do if you want to. But unfortunately, I neither have the drive nor the time. I feel bad but that's how I am. Am not too good at following diets, as I eat out a lot. Got to do something but dont know what.

Let me ponder over this one, will be back later.
