Guess where did I go during the weekend?? To watch Mamma Mia in Singapore!! It is on show until 3rd Dec at the Esplanade. (You know, the building that look like a fly's eye).

I just have to go for it, even though it is so far because I missed it when I was in Melbourne, London and New York. Apparently tickets at these places were fully booked months ahead.

The play is just great, with all the famous ABBA songs being sung. This cast is originally from Australia. It is not any ordinary broadway play like boring phantom of the opera or classic oklahoma, Mamma Mia story line is fully of fun and jokes, colorful dancing.

I really had fun being in this broadway play.

Psychology Test

There is this test I read on a magazine very long ago that I can't forget.

I assume most of you know who is doraemon. He is a robotic cat from the future, send back to aid this poor soul called Nobita, by Nobita's decendant from the future. Doraemon is deemed to be the super robot that have all kinds of gadgets in this infinity pounch at his tummy. All these gadgets comes in handy when Nobita lands into trouble, e.g. never finish homework in time, being left out intentional by friends when going outings.

So, assuming you are Nobita, and one day you found that you can have Doraemon to help you anymore. You are given a chance to give doraemon to someone else, who would you most likely to hand away Doraemon?

Think. Issit the orphans? Your Parents? A long lost good friend? Someone u met on the street perhaps?

The psychology behind is rather interesting. The person that you will give away doraemon to, signifying that he/she is the one you deemed most vulnerable, perhaps even inferior in your eyes. Take doraemon as something very precious to you, if you would give away it to someone else, that person in your eyes must be incapable of owning the same thing.

Make sense?

Reason to get married

While waiting for a friend to go to the bank after lunch, I popped a questiong to my ex-colleague, Grace " Why do people want to get married? Especially seeing the amount of preparations, and heartache, disagreement that two person must go through before finally getting together."

She think think, and replied:

Well, when two person date each other long enough, they became bored and there is nothing else to talk about. So, they get marry and go through all the preparations such as buying house together, marriage registration, etc. This is so as they have common topics to chat on and the relationship can be carried on.

After they get married, the relationship cool down little by little. This time, the couple will think about having children. Children will keep their time fully occupied, and let this couple have more things to talk about. Because of the children, they might decide to take a day out to the zoo, even though dating no longer excites them.

So I carefully lingered on the answer she said, and thought:

What happens then when children eventually grown up and leave?

In my opinion, the couple would go through marriage because splitting obviously is not desired after investing so much time and emotion on this relationship. Unless something unexpected came up, such as discovering he or she has changed, he or she wanting something else in life other than marriage.

Along the way, they have children, they change jobs, maybe their parents/friends pass away, move away. But throughout this life, they discover it is not such a bad idea having a partner supporting each other all along. Even though they do fight and tried to conquer each other, and when they grow old, become weary and wrinkled all over, but who cares, it is this ugly, or once arrogant partner that walk this lifepath together with you all this while.

Look for Waja When Accident Happens To You?

The thing is that, this guy is great with his thoughts. He has a dream or something like that. He thinks, since that the waja is designed with a safe crumple zone, we should bang onto one on the road if so unfortunately an accident happens. Hmm! What is the logic?
