Yoyoyo. hahahas. How lame. x) Most of the time when I see people, I say "yo". Know why? Cos yo is more...casual and it sounds more like a joke, so when you're meeting someone you dont know very well, you could try to say "yo" to lighten up the atmosphere. You know, not so awkward like when you say "Hello, my name is blah blah, whats yours?". It sounds proper, but its pretty weird..to me la anyway.
I heard that when us Msians speak to each other, foreigners dont know what language we're speaking. Its true, because, manglish has really taken over Msians. Phrases like "Ya la!", "Eh, I chao yeah.", "Off it la!" and all that. I guess living in a multilingual country does has its ups and downs.
Speaking of that, what is happening to Msia?! Crazy psycho politicians who care about nothing but themselves. == Msia is losing all her pride. And not only Msia, the world is.. pretty chaotic, I have to say. Economic problems and all that. I dont know much about that but I think the world is really going through a rough patch. Inflations, high costs of petrol and food, people going on strike, protesting, Iraq not getting any better, global warming and so on.
Sigh. Sometimes I wonder whether we should try to modernise ourselves or not. All this technology, new creations, gadgets...what good are they now? They made mankind cruel, power-hungry, evil, and just plain sick-minded. All the bombings, pollution.... Maybe if we just had a laid-back lifestyle, no technology, just mother nature and animals for company, the world would be a better place?
But you also ponder about life without technology. Could we or would we survive? Sure, you say, human beings who lived a million years ago definitely survived without iPods but people didnt have a long lifespan back then because once they fell ill, they didnt have simple medication to cure their sickness.
So maybe the world should be advanced in all those medical fields but not in technological fields? Doesnt sound right, does it?
And if we are so advanced in technology, why cant we work towards making the world a better place to live in? Stop global warming and all that pollution, save the North and South Pole! And so on la. I'm not an enviromentalist but I do love mother nature.
Hmm. Sometimes I really wonder what would happen in the future. Scientists have said that we need to find a new planet for the future generations to live on, because the sun would eventually die. USA are currently experimenting on some soil that they managed to get from Mars. Thats just....wierd. Can you imagine living on another planet? I believe that there are many other galaxies out there, not only the ones we have learned in science, but you would be thinking, who am I to know, right? Lols. But if there is, what kind of living species would be there? I think Aliens are completely overrated. Based on fiction, the whole UFO thing. Ok, maybe people have seen flying saucers and all that but, I dont know, its still pretty weird to me.
Okaaaaaay. I think this has been a pretty weird post. Just rantings la. Random thoughts, seeing as I havent been blogging for a long time.
