The Friday I Discovered The Sex Scandal

3,253 views

09.30 am – Woke up. Showered. Breakfasted.

10.30 am – Surfed around.

11.00 am – Updated “Best of July” in Facebook and Friendster.

11.30 am – The internet connection slowed down. MCB. Can’t even check mails nor go into famouschris.com

12.00 pm – Updated famouschris.

12.15 pm – zzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz

01.30 pm – Lunched.

02.30 pm – Updated famouschris.

03.30 pm – Surfed around.

04.00 pm – Self improvement time!

    I learned that in a relationship, when a woman is upset, she not only uses generalities, but is also looking for support.

    When a woman says :

  1. “No one listens to me anymore”

    A man hears it as –

    “I give you my attention but you don’t listen to me. You used to. You have become a very boring person to be with. I want something exciting and interesting and you are definitely not that person. You are disappointing, selfish and uncaring.”

    How true.

    But what she actually means is –

    “I am afraid I am boring to you. I am afraid you are no longer interested in me. I seem to be very sensitive today. Would you give me some special attention? I would love it. I’ve had a hard day and feel as though no one wants to hear what I have to say.”

    Men tend to be more factual and will take words literally. A typical response would be –

    “That’s not true. I am listening to you what.”

    So before a man can learn women language, he has to be aware that there is such a language.

  2. Next.

  3. When a man faces a problem or becomes stressed out he will become silent. And he expects to be left alone to deal with it. Women’s golden rules is to never abandon a friend when she is upset. But it does not apply to men. It’s different. Men and women speak different languages.

    What he is actually saying when he is silent is :

    “I don’t know what to say yet, I am thinking about it. Just let me be. I can resolve this within myself if you don’t interrupt my process by asking more questions or offering suggestions.”

    NOT

    “I am not responding to you because I do not care about you and I am ignoring you. What you have said is not important therefore I am not responding.”

    Many women, including those in my past relationships imagined silence as the worst. This is due to the face that women are silent only for 2 reasons.

    Either what’s about to come out of the mouth is gonna hurt or
    she doesn’t wants to have nothing to do with that person.

    The above are excerpts of Chapter 5 of John Gray’s Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus.

08.30 am – Woke up.

09.00 am – After John showered and we walked down to Mandarin Cafe for breakfast.

I made a mistake by ordering 2 LARGE plates.

Akibatnya.

09.30 am – Grocerying in Tesco.

Sesame oil for oil pulling, peanut butter for breakfast and strawberries… hmm… strawberries are a first.

I have tried almost every type of shampoo before, from Clear to Pantene to Sunsilk but none seemed to work as well as Sebamed’s anti dandruff. Although Nizoral’s the best, it’s pretty small in quantity and pricey. So, Sebamed it is.

10.30 am – Went for a haircut.

11.00 am – Showered.

11.30 am – Checked mails. Read RPK’s That Reminds Me, TheStar.

Spain kicked Germany’s ass to win Euro 2008.

08.00 pm – Gurney Plaza’s food court.

Ordered from our usual favourite stall.

The 3 of us had the same ..

.. nasi padprik ayam.

09.00 pm – Visited my cousin’s gym. Enquired about the fees and stuff like that. Although the gym that I have been going to for the past 2 years is conveniently located near my place, they have no proper instructors to guide you. All this while, I have been working out based on the videos and articles I see on the internet. It’s actually kinda hard when you have questions and don’t know how to get them answered.

And during Chinese New Year, my cousin, Shane did mention to me about the full time instructors and the products of his gym which includes Mr Penang, Mr Penang Junior, Celebrity Fitness instructors, etc. So I thought, why not give it a try. It should be better as the instructors are there in person to help you out if you have any questions. Moreover, it’s cheap at RM50 monthly and a lifetime membership of RM60, which is awesome as you can stop and come back years later.

09.30 pm – Showered. Rested.

Plastered 3 of these onto

the sink,

the wall near the floor and

the kitchen.

12.00 am – Did another site for bro’s friends.
