The Definition of Guardian

Draft saved on March 22 2009. Got this thought about doing this 8 months back, and many know from my jersey name that my nickname is Guardian. So why ‘Guardian’? Wierd nickname right? I thought so too, but if you think more about it, it seems to be a nice nickname.

If you type ‘Guardian’ in Google or Yahoo, you will get either the UK Guardian newspaper, or the law definition of guardian, who is supposed to be in charge of a child or something like that. Not the type of guardian you want to be. When I thought of the word ‘guardian’, it seems like a word with very little meaning. Someone who guards. It justs relates back to the word ‘guard’. Nothing much.

So what’s a guardian? Most person would relate a guardian to be ‘someone who guards’. For me, a guardian could be anything I wish for. It could be a defender, a protector, a hero who protects his loved ones with his life. Or maybe you would relate it to a guardian angel. A guardian angel is an angel assigned to protect and guide someone out there. When someone survives a horrid accident, many say that “Hey, he must have a guardian angel protecting him.” If there’s someone I want to be in my next life, that’s being a guardian angel.

Guardian Angels ftw

Now ‘Guardian’ seems like a nice name. I think most of my friends know how I started with this nickname. Started out when I was playing Battleon, and you need to pay money to become a ‘Guardian’. While I was playing maple, I had to think of a name. So, heck it, I chose the name Guardian. After some while, I use this word everywhere, I use it as my jersey name, my dota name, my name for most forums, etc. This ‘trend’ has lasted for around 5 years for me. Till most recently I have been using ‘Taeyeon’ for my dota name. It looks nice anyway, and I think my next nickname would be Taeyeon if I cannot stop my obession with her… Like what Akid says, she’s fucking plastic, but fucking plastic also very pretty. LOL, ok maybe it’s a little turnoff. But no one’s perfect, the TW and Japan girls also put a lot of makeup, and most pictures you see of U.S. models are photoshopped as well.

What am I saying? Off to work. 1 day to HCL, 2 days to Guitar Audition, 3 days to Taiwan. Maybe I can squeeze in another post before leaving to Taiwan. So little time, so much to do. To think that the exams are over?!

Offically addicted to Taeyeon~ weeeee


More tests?


It’s the end of Week 4, so there are roughly 3 more months to the EOYs. And guess what, there are still more tests and things such as BP and ACE, and they expect us to study EOYs when there are so many tests? Do the math, and see now how little time we have for revision. I envy my friends overseas. Although most think that being a Singaporean = being blessed with the best education, I bet Singaporeans do not have the most memorable schooling life. They have proms, end-of-year pranks, less work to handle with, more vibrant school life. Next week, I have BP, ACE position paper, Maths Quiz, Geog CT, Chem Prac Test, not to mention the additional tuition homework, and I can’t find time to even download some 至尊百家樂 videos. And today I would be most probably skipping the usual Mahjong session. Better go back and hit the books.

1 thing I hate about my class is that everytime a test ends, people FAIL to keep their mouth shuts. The test is fucking over, gone, finished, and does it help if you discuss after the test? I hear people cheering after they know they got 1 question right. Woohoo! Gratz, you have secured 1 mark of your test. Or people moaning and saying, “Aiyah I lose 4 marks, can’t get A+ liao” =.=”. After the class receive back the results, people moan over that they didn’t get a A+ or whatever crap. If people have eyes, there are people who failed. I am one of those, and it feels sucky to see people moaning over not getting an A or something. I fail, and do you ever see moan? No. This just shows that you are not putting in enough effort. I have shown my frustration before, and not because I failed, cause some people can’t shut their fucking mouth. (Only Janson knows I think…) One result I am proud of is my Trigo Test, got an A, but do you see me running around the whole class? Nope, I’m satisfied and I keep it to myself. It’s ok to show that you are happy, just remember that you are not alone and be mindful that there are people around you.


Failed Chem, HCL and LA test, worst start to the new term. Can’t wait for the whole thing to end. Getting addicted to Taiwan shows, maybe I should just move there… Shows in Singapore are boring, always the same stuff. Last post for July, bye July 09, hello August 09! Stay happy always.

And another song for today.

Tonight – FM Static
I remember the times we spent together
on those drives
We had a million questions
all about our lives
and when we got to New York
everything felt right
I wish you were here with me

I remember the days we spent together
were not enough
and it used to feel like dreamin’
except we always woke up
Never thought not having you
here now would hurt so much

Tonight I’ve fallen and I can’t get up
I need your loving hands to come and pick me up
And every night I miss you
I can just look up
and know the stars are
holdin’ you, holdin’ you, holdin’ you tonight

I remember the time you told me about when you were eight
And all those things you said that night that just couldn’t wait
I remember the car you were last seen in
and the games we would play
All the times we spilled our coffees
and stayed out way too late
I remember the time you SAT AND told me about your Jesus
and how not to look back even if no one believes us
When it hurt so bad sometimes
not having you here…

I sing,
“Tonight I’ve fallen and I can’t get up
I need your loving hands to come and pick me up
And every night I miss you
I can just look up
and know the stars are
holdin’ you, holdin’ you, holdin’ you tonight”

I sing,
“Tonight I’ve fallen and I can’t get up
I need your loving hands to come and pick me up
And every night I miss you
I can just look up
and know the stars are
holdin’ you, holdin’ you, holdin’ you tonight”

Who’s That Girl? Part 1 of 2

So, many people have asked me, “Who is that girl in your DP?” And so today the answer will still not be revealed, but if you have Cable TV and have the Taiwan shows, you should know who she is. Will be posting some of these pictures to class blog as well during Thursday (not Friday the 13th, unlucky day =.=”), and decided to post 1 more actress, also from Taiwan, but should have seen before, got host 我猜我猜我猜猜猜 before, will post in Part 2, and I would be posting less pictures at class blog as I scared tio flamed like poor Leon by *ahem*. Let this be my Valentine’s Gift to all the guys of 4F (especially the socialiser Dillon Fool) =D


I’ve been liking to post Part 1 or I, makes it feel more interesting =D

If you could live your life one more time


If you could turn back time, live your life again. What would you do?

During December last year at Taiwan, me and my dad met this 30+ guy who was working as a cameraman, and had 1 year left from graduating from medical school and getting a degree. He seemed like a great guy, had a kid and a wife already. When my dad was having a chat with him, he asked if he could redo college, would he take another subject.

With no hesitation, he said, “Of Course!”. My dad asked what course would he take, he promptly replied, “To tell you the truth, I would take a medical course.”

His wife said, “When you were 21, why did you give up being a doctor?”

He replied, “At that time, I wasn’t sure if I could finish. The lessons were so long and boring, and a waste of money. I was just thinking of graduating early, start to look for a job, and have a happy family.”

He then carried on with his ending, “My wife asked me that now I have a job, earning moneyand savings, have already a child and a marriage, why not trying to be a doctor? At that point of time, I was speechless, I just wanted to accomplish my childhood dream, at the end I decided to finish studying my course. Now I have 1 year left in my course, my results are good, and I have nothing to worry about the fees, best of all, I have my wife’s support. My life now never felt any better more!”

If you believe you can do it… most likely you can.
If you believe you can’t do it… you can never do it.

Working at Sony must be fun


have nothing interesting in school to post, so decided to write about my dad working with Sony.

Working for a big company and being able to travel around the whole world while taking pictures and videos must be really fun. I envy my dad. Had a chance to ‘explore’ his computer, the pictures inside were awesome, ranging from Spain to the US, he is a lucky bastard. Also managed to find some chiobu picture during his trip to Taiwan. He managed to work with some celebrity in a photo shoot (oh so lucky) and now he puts some unguessable password to make sure I can’t go in. By the way, my father is not a photographer -__-”

A rough week has ended. HOLIDAYS 2 DAYS! But should be studying at least half of the time and the rest collecting my hongbao $.$ Now my legs are burnnning due to basketball, damn I wasn’t in form at all, hitting around 15% 3 point and defending badly, got burnt soooooo many times by girls. Many tell me to stop shooting 3 pointers and some call it a waste of time. BRICK WALLS ARE THERE FOR A REASON. Maybe will work on mid-range, can’t get used to such a low post. Two of my favourites shooters in the NBA are Ray Allen and Michael Redd.
