Attachments

Early this morning, I was chatting with a friend, and we arrived at this point:

(I’m in green)
:

teen angst...
fortunately, never had those moments
hmm... what about [name omitted]....
although some would argue one is misisng out on part of life
well, that was closer to infatuation. not a deep rooted 'thing'
i see... so you doing any girl hunting these days?
no, not that preoccupied
its not very wise too. if an attachment may be formed, it will eb messy, since i'm leaving [Melbourne] end of this year
most probably
very sensible indeed... attachments are indeed problematic
anyway... i got to get dinner done now
i'll ttu some other time
yea, i'm off to bed
ttyl


That pretty much sums up my approach to certain aspects of life. Please note the escape word “certain”. Hence, please do not come to me and ask, “Why are you mourning the loss of a manual gearbox? I thought you had no attachments?” Which at that point I might either slap you or challenge you to a double-clutch heel-and-toe down-shift exercise (what a lot of hyphens!).

Some people have the opinion this is simply a fear of commitment. Others might infer it as fear of taking risks. A few might deduce that I’m a hermit (they might be right to a certain extent).

Whatever.

It’s also possible to arrive at the conclusion that I’m quite partial to some of the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama.

On another note, notice that I’ve taken the trouble to use different words for similar applications in the above sentences: opine, infer, deduce, and conclude.

Hi Wei,

Thnx for the post card as well. Do read your blog though do not comment as much. The chocolate thing at the restaurant sounds very interesting. Have you tried it before? We can copy and sell the idea back in KL.:) hehe

DC (not David Couthard),

I've resolved to send a card every week, and so far i've been sort of keeping up.

The chocolate at the cafe should be good, but the one i made was definitely not worth the effort.

We could do it in Bukit Bintang. Being the 'cool' place, you can probably pull anything off as long as its marketed as 'cool'. Hot yit hei stuff in the afternoon will be the next cool. Just wait and see :)
