day 867 – spams

image

there’s been one conversation that’s taken over my whatsapp lately. i understand the importance of communication and whatsapp is a great way of communication, but it’s overdoing it and totally redundant if i have to receive the same message in four different means. i am not sure how keen i am waking up every morning to see repeated posts not just once, but four times. seeing twenty odd links by noon is unreal and totally ruins my whole whatsapp experience

day 807 – recipe

image

rather than asking me how i am doing in her absence, the first message mom sent me since leaving town was because she wanted this recipe to be sent to her in a hurry. but in case she’s interested in knowing, i am doing just fine and racing through my hectic schedule, which is nothing new. i guess she’s had enough of eating out everyday and must really want to cook in hong kong

monday night is date night

quality bonding time after being apart three years and only maintained through long distance messaging. fooling around at mcdonalds and our ability to be ourselves everywhere anywhere. time really does fly and before we know it, our friendship has been over a decade long and only continues to grow. you know our friendship is strong when our friendship remains so close even though we are separated by many seas and mountains. and no matter what situation arises, we will always know that the other will be right there when we need them most. looking to the day we can be reunited and not thirteen time zones apart

day 723 – why won’t you stop

image

is nineteen images in one day really necessary? why must you spam me with all these images that i am not keen on reading, for the third time. would much rather be spending my time doing many other things than reading the same old things over and over again, all of the same content but from different sources. my whatsapp is not meant for this, nor is my email for this matter

day 623 – weird friend

image

sometimes the random ideas that goes through a person’s mind can be really absurd. in this case, i am certain he was completely sober when we were having this discussion that associated the benefits of chocolate intake and possible kidnapping scenario. i can confirms some of my friends can be on a different wavelength from the rest, but i guess that’s how i can tell them apart and that’s what makes them special

day 490 – quote of the day

image

a little humour never hurts, especially to get through a not so spectacular week. its been that kind of week where lots of things are happening but just can’t seem to have them go my way. here’s a little inspiration from a friend that made my day. it may not sound grammatically correct, but it gets the point across and serves its purpose. the quote can’t be more suitable for my situation and all the things i have to deal with

twenties series: [five] technology

image

some arguments were made that technology is altering people interaction and that we are losing the ability to communicate with face to face conversations. that may be true on some level, but can’t argue that technology is a powerful tool that has also brought us many conveniences like never before. sure, the increased gaming opportunities isn’t a good reflection but a little wouldn’t hurt. no one can argue being able to send a short message or quickly snap and send a picture through our mobile phones applications in a matter of seconds is not convenient, the simplicity to check in or tag your friends in photos to share, or the ability to retrieve an email the second it arrives is not efficient. let’s be realistic, who doesn’t own a computer or cellphone these days and who still uses land line as home phone?? the technological world is advancing so quickly, the fastest and most efficient way is to constantly be checking all sorts of platforms. i must admit i am a culprit of relying on technology everyday, every waking hour. i don’t see how that can be a bad thing because just by checking up on social media, it allows me to catch up on some friend news, gossip new and world news even if it means reading them off my facebook wall. i admit i am the person who would be swiping on my phone at the dinner table; but in my defense, being a busy person makes it is not all unncessary activity, but i am working on minimizing that. bottom line is i feel so lost and naked without my phone, i simply cannot live without technology and i don’t think its a bad thing
