Spouting my random thoughts..

Do you have that voice in your head that is constantly there no matter where you are or what you are doing? I do. And as much as it can be entertaining to let my thoughts run wild, it can sometimes be really annoying.

That voice narrates my life, debates with me, creates scenarios for me to play out in my head... But I know once I write about them, they disappear! So here goes...

1) Do u have a will? Obviously I don't. Don't have enough asses to qualify for one maybe but I always wondered how I would divide up the little I have...
First I'd set aside a nice comfy sum for Kaze, the flute ensemble. So it could hold a small concert and perhaps sustain itself with more music and who knows, instruments!
Then of course to my boyfriend, who could probably do something useful with it.
But the majority would go to my parents cos I think not only would they know what to do with it (charity, etc) they probably would need it more than anyone else.

2) Marriage. This is something that has been only mind quite a lot - seeing how there are so many weddings to attend this year.
Saying I don't want to get married would be one huge fat lie. But saying it's a necessity would be pushing it. Because seriously, do I need that assurance of that certificate?

Honestly, no.

I'm in such a happy and, dare I say, fairly contented time of my life that it would truly be a bonus if it happens but if not, I do not see any loss. If my bf wanted to be with me, I should not need a certificate to make him stay. Besides we are already staying together and taking on our responsibilities to one another.

But of course it's more than that isn't it?

From the proposal, the excitement, the telling friends and family and ultimately, the ceremony and honeymoon.... I think that is what all girls want to experience. At least that's what I think. And I still have time in my life to dream of it.

As long as people stop bugging me about it. It's not the girl's choice if she wants to "settle down"... Go ask the guy! I mean, don't pls, else it'll be another bf scared away. Haha...

3) Along the same line of marriage, I was listening (and at the table) to 2 girls talking about expectations on engagement rings.

It is not the first time I heard of talk on diamond rings but I'm sorry, I just simply CANNOT agree with what girls sometimes expect.

I am assuming this applies only to the ladies working in the banking industry for I have not had this discussion with anyone outside of it.

3 times the salary of the guy is the EXPECTED MINIMUM price for an engagement ring to a girl. What the hell?!?!?! What a bloody waste of money lah! Do you know what I can do with 3 times my salary?! Buy biz class tix to Europe ah!!!

I can't even tell the difference between a crystal, fake diamond and a real one. It's nice to have of course but isn't it the surprise of it all that is supposed to take the girl's breath away? Wouldn't you marry him anyway just because you want to spend the rest of your life with this person?

Strange people in banking sometimes. I don't subscribe to it one bit. Some of them are so jaded by the high salaries, branded shoes and bags, far away holidays... Don't they realize how luxurious these pleasures are? I'm glad I wasn't always in banking - cos I understood what it meant to bring home less than $2k a month and yet be happy with the things I had.

There. That's just a whole loa of stuff I was randomly thinking about today. I'll write about other stuff when it hits my brain.

Oh. There is one more thing I could write about. I had an article in my head just the other day on taxis in Singapore. Next blog post I guess. Muahaha!!!

For the time being, it's one week to my birthday....... :)
