Random thoughts: 35 years has passed...

Just celebrated my birthday yesterday. Yup, it is on the same date as Pusa. Gave me plenty of time to meet up with friends.

When I am at the KTV, my friend asked us:" Do you still remembered what I said was my dream when I am in secondary school?" I remembered doing the same email exercise when I am in university, one of the those silly email survey. It asked me to visualize my life when I am 60 and old...

My friend's answer: to be the best available bachelor, driving a car, enjoying life. He then laments about family life.

My email answer: A lonely single old man, without a loved one, most probable having company with a pet dog.

Both of our realities are different now. Although I might still be lonely come 60, but it is not like I could not find a wife. Yeah, I was so clueless or luckless with relationships that I thought I will never make it...

Another secondary mate wished me 35th birthday through whatspp. I replied: Thanks, how time flies. He agreed, and said its scary.

Looking backwards, many of our "visions" did not pend out, isn't it?

When I am in university, I write poems, talk about philosophy. I thought maybe that will be how I hitch my girlfriend. In reality? LOL...

How about making a projection of amount of money you will have when you are 55? How about a growth compounding rate of 6-12%, whichever you fancy. Its great to envision, but live your present to the fullest now. You might not give a hoot about money when you reached 60...

  2. Hi Richard.

    I like to think of myself as young too... In all three domains. Young physically, young mentally, young social and emotionally.

  9. Hi Mike,

    Aiyoh, 35 is scary? I am going to be 43 soon. I should be scared stiff! In fact, I am a little bit so. Sigh.

    Can feel the body not as agile (or strong). Can feel the brain not as fast (or clear). -.-"

    Anyway, throw these depressing thoughts out the window, down the chute, into the bin and whatever way you feel happier with!

    Celebrate for you have gained in wisdom. Gong xi! Gong xi! ;)
