On double standards, And practising what you preach

[QUOTE=old_uncle]"All animals are equal, but some are more equal than the other" :p[/QUOTE]

hahaha. you make me ponder what is "more equal". I know what you mean. But I trying to think if equal can be more equal than equal itself.

Or maybe I should just kill this GP question by saying All animals not equal in the first place. If subject A doesn't stands, and B is built on A, then B falls as well. :D :D :D

That brings me to another question. Is fair equivalent to equal?

Citispa - Spa Deligh & Spa Harmony

I decided to try out spa services by Citispa last Friday.

Branch: Century Square, 5th floor

Item: Spa Delight $38 promotional price
Only for females.

Includes: 1 x Steam Bath
1 x Jacuzzi
1 x Massage

The steam bath machine is really nice. I like it, and if I have money next time, I don't mind installing one in my home. It was set at a comfortable 37 deg. C.

The jacuzzi, though comfortable, felt normal. Just like those swimming pool massagers. Not as special as I thought it was. It was my first time.

The massage was horrible. No effect to soothe my muscles at all. It was done by a Chinese national. More of tui na than body massage. My package only included upper back to head massage. I think True spa full body massage is much much much better.

My significant other tried the following:

Item: Spa Harmony @ $68

Includes: 1 x Steam Bath
1 x massage

Steam bath was done with the same machine.

The massage was painful at many times. Only done on the back to head.

Final Verdict: 0 hearts.
It is not the worth the money at all, even though I thought $38 was cheap enough initially. Don't bother to try.

让爱你的人忍受无止禁的伤痛 - The Suicide Issue

~ Win (by Edmund Chen) in the last episode of Perfect Cut

How much I felt when I heard this words... ...

The pain, the agony, the lost, the refusal to come to terms... ...

I believe suicidal intent is transient. And I also believe that suicide is an unpardonable act of selfishness, based upon those words quoted.

I wonder how many people in this world have lost their people they know to suicide?

I wonder how many of my friends have lost kins to suicide.

It is strange that people never want to talk about this, not even to their closest ones. There is still a stigma in this issue. A sort of sensitivity that no one wishes to say. Is it a lose of face? Is it sadness and pain? I think it's a mixture of both.

~ lyrics from 分手快乐, sung by Fish Leong

In other words, it says that life and fortune is in one's hands, and one's hands alone.

I am sure at some point in time, all of us will talk ourselves into living a life with smiles. A life of happiness. Who doesn't wants to be happy? There are points in time, we promise ourselves to be good, to go on. But it seems, life is fragile.

I cannot confirm that afterlife is beautiful, but I know that life is beautiful. Let's take a step back and breathe in the world, for it is beautiful. Treasure your life.

What a valuable lesson that I have learnt! =)

Presentation and speaking to people is an undeniably important skill no matter where you go.

I am very glad that I made a mistake, but a beautiful mistake in life that allowed me to master presentation to a comfortable level.

Now, I can present smoothly without placards, and only once or twice rehearsal (as long as it's me who has done the slides, so I know the contents well).

I am so proud of myself. As I was a quiet girl who never could speak up in front of people.

These are the moments in life that we should cheer about. Little steps, little improvements, little achievements. It pushes us on!
