Mit Mir… August 24, 2007

wir, die hier bleiben, taumeln und wanken
was können wir noch sehen?
lass keine Sekunde ohne dich vergehen…
ich halte sie fest, atme sie ein
als könnten wir zurück
vergessen kein Stück…

ich nehm’ es mit mir
ganz egal, wohin ich gehe…
trag’ es in mir
jeder neue Tag tut weh…
ich nehm’ es mit mir
alles, was noch vor mir lag…
trag’ es in mir
jede Stunde, jeder Tag…

ich lass mich verschlingen, will mich nicht wehren
und langsam drängt es ein
wird bange Gewissheit, all dieses Hoffen verneint
ich will sie nicht sehen, all diese Zeit
die ich noch haben kann
wenn nicht für dich, wofür dann?

Ich nehme es mit mir, ganz egal, wohin ich gehe. Du bist ganz dabei, obwohl weit entfernt. Was willst du von mir? Was will ich von dir? Was wird aus uns?

I’m not attached to her or whoever. I’m attached to an organisation…namely, MOE. Or, more specifically, MOELC. And the workload is pretty insane! Moms is right when she says that i’ll be a workaholic in the future…which i seriously do not want to be…considering that a huge fear of mine is forgetting my dream to get a PhD and teach at a university.

However, the people are nice and kind, and i found many familiar faces…like schraudolph, annie, yadda, so i guess there’s a bright side to it after all. The Germans seem to be pretty okay folk as well, i figure. But working til 8pm? Reminds me of uni in Trier. I guess the worst part of it is dragging your tired ass home to God-knows-what, having a lot to tell but no one to tell it to (or perhaps i simply don’t want to tell it…why am i like that?)

Maybe i want to tell it to just a particular someone. And you check your e-mail several times a day, and you go on studivz for no good reason, and you know that more often than not, nothing which interests you is going to be there. The day wears on, without the Ermunterungsstoff which awakens, refreshes and rejuvenates. And when you don’t get the quiet which everyone needs sometimes, when all you do is run here and there, up and down, losing yourself in the troubles of others, and when right at the end, you get that peace and quiet which you need – and there is nothing but emptiness, because you’re just too tired, too drained.

I seem to have misplaced your smile, your voice and your face. Dashboard Confessional featuring Juli is on infinite replay.

Ich vermisse dich.

Home is Where the Heart Belongs..? August 3, 2007

How does it feel to be home? Where is home? Home is where the heart belongs. So is here home or is there home? Is a house a home? A town? A country? A world?

I want to go home, wherever that is…

I am Singaporean XXXI – Lazarus’ Singapore August 1, 2007

Look at what i found on the YoungPAP blog! Apparently Nicholas Lazarus (some dude i don’t even know) is going around spreading anti-gay hate mail. Talk about diversity…i wonder if this is the supposed ‘dynamism’ Singapore is supposed to have, ever since The Old Man acknowledged that the gay community would have to be accepted.

First and foremost, when he says pondering, he means ‘going down the slippery slope of no return, Singapore will oh-my-god sink back into the South China Sea and Malaysia will defeat us because our soldiers are too busy having sex with each other.’ So let’s imagine Lazarus’ Singapore (if gay acts get legalised and if Lazarus becomes by a twist of fate PM):

Imagine men walking hand in hand with other men down Orchard Road, kissing, fondling and making out.

Unimaginable! If this was Lazarus’ Singapore, instead of men walking hand in hand down Orchard Road, there’d be groups of policemen walking down Orchard Road with a MP5 slung around their shoulders à la Changi Airport. They’d probably apprehend a man holding the hand of a 8-year-old boy and accuse him of gay paedophilia (gasp!) when they are actually father and son. After all, it’s happened before what, this phenomenon of the Non-Thinking Public Servant…remember the bomb scare at the airport not so long ago?

For that matter, imagine all that taking place on the MRT.

Wow. That is grand. As if there aren’t enough teenagers making out in school uniform on the MRT already. Complete with tongue action, fondling and groping, batteries and action figures sold seperately. If this was Lazarus’ Singapore…aren’t there already those infoscreens installed in the trains? Anyone read Orwell’s 1984? Big Brother is watching….and then you can solve the unemployment problem by hiring loads of retrenched angry people, to drag these gays out at the next station where they get lynched. Nothing like a mass avenue for anger management, innit?

Instead of teachers dealing with boy-girl relationships, teachers would have to deal with boy-boy relationships.

There were already gays during my time in TCHS. And the only different aspect in dealing with boy-boy relationships is the social aspect, the perceived potential stigma the boy in the relationship is going to receive. So, where’s the difference in boy-girl and boy-boy relationships? At the most, schools should get a school shrink. In Lazarus’ Singapore…how about making these kids disappear and then sending them to a ‘re-education camp’ in Pasir Laba training area, just like what the Viet Cong did?

Then, you might have the homosexuals all over Asia descending upon Singapore to flaunt what they cannot in their own countries.

Isn’t that good? That’s in keeping with Singapore’s aim to be a Universal Hub of Everything – cultural hub, educational hub, technology hub, yadda, yadda. At the most, the island will not be able to support the mass of gays and it will start sinking slowly back into the sea. Yeah, it’s tough. But with the exodus of local Singaporeans anyway, it keeps things in equilibrium. In Lazarus’ Singapore, new foreign talent would need to be mindread in order to discover if they have gay tendencies. If they do, then they’ll be treated like illegal immigrants, locked up and given 8 strokes of the cane before being repatriated.

And Lazarus’ defence:

They cannot procreate and thus cannot produce offspring for our nation.

For a lawyer, this guy is pretty retarded. Cannot procreate and thus cannot produce offspring for our nation…and THAT is why gays should be banned? If i’m not wrong, this view has a religious background…i will have to check up on that though. It’s like saying that incest is bad because it imbalances the amount of love in the family. Like that, single high-flyers would have to be shut out of Singapore also…because they cannot procreate! Perhaps a good way out would be for there to be single high-flyers who are foreigners, whereas all the dumbed-down Singaporeans just stay home, get married, have children, get retrenched, and then carry on slogging to their deaths.

Seriously, however, this goes to show once again how dangerous it is for us Singaporeans to place ALL our trust in the PAP. Can you imagine having a minister like this person? Can you imagine this person on the forefront of Singaporean politics? Think about it. (The Net response however is pretty heartening i must say)
