New Year Resolutions

2006 December 31, 12:47 am

I’ve been rather cranky lately due to the gradual flare-up of eczema. Well, it is said that during adversity, people show their true colours. Hence, my first resolution as follows:


1. Be at peace within, and think pragmatically, at all times. Especially during adversity.

2. Devote snippets of time for insight-meditation.

3. Learn Spanish and Esperanto. Yeah! I want to be Zorro. *laughs*

4. Write freelance at least once for a magazine (preferably literary/reader’s digest).

5. Devote time to seek ultimate reality, just as the Buddha had done. Thus explains why I’m going to further studies on Physics and Chemistry.

6. Write a short-story/novel. Despite having the whole plot in my head, I’m procrastinating!

7. Sleep at a beach under the stars, hopefully with some friends, for security reasons… *winks*

8. Lose weight and gain a hot butt. And be a little narcissistic? *grins*

9. Find out how I can realise the plans to build custom furniture by myself, for my room. Thereafter, build it.

10. Recycle and reuse whatever I can.

11. Be more social with people I don’t know at a social event.

12. Disallow society to dictate my actions.

13. Learn to juggle. I was inspired by Joan Of Arcadia for this one.

14. Create awareness on environmental degradation and human-rights horrors!

15. Be less primitive with my eating behaviour.

The below are things I have little influence on but I hope will change for the better…

1. My parents health

2. Reduce eczema flare-ups and cure/treat my dry scalp.

3. Rid of pimples and some scars.

4. Hope I don’t have loose skin after butt-loss. Oh god, it mustn’t happen!

5. Fart lesser *LOL*

My Funeral Rites Will

Funeral Meme

I am finally going to complete this meme entry; I will give allowance for my creativity and imagination. The meme is as follows:

Firstly, let me just say, family and friends, these are just guidelines. Within the boundaries of those present at the funeral, do whatever that pleases you. After all, as at then, I am dead. Hence, argue not over my last rites; I get really cranky when disturbed in the middle of a deep sleep…


Burn my body


Let fire consume my body, and allow the wind to scatter the ashes into the ocean. As such, remember the analogy on fire not being able to extinguish fire when the flames consume me; when my ashes scatter, keep in mind the interconnectedness of our world: fire -pyre, earth -ashes, air -wind, water -ocean, and most importantly, whatever it is, the mind prevails them all.

Plant a tree


For the sake of grief, grow trees in my memory. They aid in the reduction of greenhouse gases and serve as wonderful shade from the sun. Trees reduce the temperature in an area of land by at least one degree Celsius. If anything, it will help with the grieving process.

Remember my maniacal laughter and laugh


[That’s Hot! 🙂 ]

It is pointless to remain sad. Death is inevitable in all things that arise. That said, gather everyone and start laughing. You will find that it will be difficult to stop thereafter, as you’ll be laughing at yourselves for laughing at nothing.

Epitaph -not important

The choice of having an epitaph or not, lies with my family. On the other hand, wouldn’t a plaque by the newly planted tree be better?


The above rites are just prescribed for the living who grieve and closure for them. Whether it is done or not does not matter for I am dead at then; I’d prefer to be burnt and have my ashes scattered though.

Funeral Meme

Funeral Meme
[Save the image in your own server and link me]

I have contemplated on this topic since the age of thirteen. I remember telling, at that time my best friend, Mandy, if I ever died, she was ‘invited’ to my funeral. It wasn’t because I was being weird; I genuinely felt death was a universal thing, not to be deemed unlucky but to be respected as a natural part of life. Hence, my last wishes.

Then again, of course, my thirteen-year-old mind had not thought specifically about the above meme. Three years later, having settled down with my beliefs, I am ready to embark on this topic, unlike before.


What Meme?

2006 August 24, 8:39 pm

A meme is an idea, question or statement that is meant for a person to blog in response to. I am sure many of you have come across a list of questions and answers in bulletin boards, forums or blogs. Very much like the following…

Have you ever committed a crime? [Yes]

Smoked? [Never have]

Betrayed someone’s trust? [Yes]

So, I have decided to create a list of memes to be updated, as and when I like. This is mainly a reminder for myself to blog about certain topics. If you can respond to the meme in your blog, why not?

Just remember to link and then ping me, so that I can put the link to the particular topic’s entry, here. Your entry will be accepted, so long as it complies with my terms.
