1. All good men are --> MARRIED
2. All good men are --> TAKEN
3. All good men are --> GAY
Well, hmmm.. I would say because most men are quite, quite NOT the gentlemen they are supposed to be anymore. No more chivalry, no more saving the damsel in distress, no more throwing of coats on puddles for the damsel to walk over... Nope. Things like that will only happen in, let's see.. MOVIES!
If you happen to chance upon guys like that, they most probably are in the above 3 categories OR are not and near extinction in numbers *grin*
It doesn't mean that just because women today are more independent financially and well, on the whole, men should just treat them like --> men because we are NOT men. We want to be treated equally ( etc, no more feet-binding, polygamy, no rights to vote, second-class to men, sex-slaves and what not ) but equality doesn't mean omitting chivalry, right?
Take for example, my female colleague tried to climb on the table to remove some hanging decorations in the presence of 2 (very) MALE colleagues and guess what? They just sat there. Being the independent woman I normally am, I would have climbed up and helped her but I decided to goad the guys into helping.
" Hey, why aren't you guys helping?"
Guy A kept quiet.
Guy B, " Ai-yah, she can do it without us."
"If you are a man, you would help her and not let her climb up there"
Guy A got up from his seat to help, still keeping quiet.
'' Wah, good for you. See (guy B's name), at least one of you are man enough."
Guy B got up from his seat, albeit reluctantly, to help.
Guy B," you come down lah..hold the chair for me. I will remove the decoration."
Why are a lot of smart, pretty, independent women single? Could be due to the simple fact that men are not men, anymore. Literally. A little chivalry and romance won't hurt. We, female, are more of the emotional kind anyway.
Hallo, we are not weak, okay. Chivalry just shouldn't be dead because we can handle so many things (yeah, superwoman). God made us your helpers. Helping you along in your life. Don't you decipher it anyway you like and make it like we have to do everything now, yo.
But that's another 'debate' for another day :P

No, not the staying at home kind.. I do love staying at home *shrugs* I don't know why but I just love to stay at home. Sometimes I spend the time crafting, sometimes just lazing around watching the idiot box. I guess I have to 'credit' this to my upbringing. Mum & Dad usually stays at home. We seldom go out much and Sundays are days where I bury myself reading the newspaper. Cos that's what they do to. And that's where I get most of my 'useless' knowledge :P
Aahh, but I digress. My latest obsession is --> House, MD. I think I'm a freak for all kinds of shows that involves suspense, flashy medical terms and sarcasm..haha. I learn a lot from shows like these too (CSI, Damages, NCIS to name a few). I love shows I need to use my brain *grins*
Gregory House, the sarcastic but brilliant doctor in House, MD. Well, the eye candy helps..hehe.. Dr. Cameron and Dr. Chase are quite, quite pleasing to the eyes. House isn't half-bad. I think he grows on you.
Quit staring at me....haha
My love for the sarcastic, crippled Dr has not waned *chuckles* Trying to get my hands on Season 1. I only have season 2 & 3. Can't wait for the next season!!
*be still my beating heart :) *

* I need to check my pulse. Nope. It didn't race. Rats. I don't feel that way for him..hmmmm..Gimme Johnny Depp anyday, baby..hehe *
Anyhow, he's landing on Malaysian soil for a concert in Stadium Merdeka this coming weekend. Tickets are sold out like hot-cakes. Last I heard, the only tics left are the RM 398 ones. The priciest of the lot.
No, the sister ain't going cos she did not land herself a free tix. HAHA.

Spring cleaning before the Chinese New Year, that's what I'm talking about. Washing and cleaning, vacumming all nooks and crany, more cleaning and washing and baking and cooking and well, you get what I mean.
It just dawned on to me this morning as I am mopping the floor. This spring cleaning business. Hmmmm, I have a very strong gut feeling now that it must have been a devious plan concocted by our ancestors, somewhere in ancient China, to have the children help with cleaning the whole house without them refusing and throwing a fit.
That's it! This must be it *insert evil laughter*
Parents of old must have gotten tired of asking their children to help with housework that they all gather and came out with this "idea" to make the children clean the house thoroughly at least once a year...HAHA.
Aren't parents smart?
I told my mum what I thought and her reply was a simple, '' Ya-lah*, you mean it took you so long to realize this? "
Have a great reunion dinner everyone :D
footnote = * lah is a Malaysian slang
