Sounds, or silence.

Now is the time for studying, and when one is studying, the last thing one needs is noise going on in the background.
Recently, some neighbours had to choose this time to do their renovation works.
So early in the morning also they want to start la.
Just like one radio station's slogan is " All hits, All day", these people seem to subscribe to the notion, " all hit all day".

But sounds sometimes just puzzle me.
Water droplets and streams are suposed to be relaxing.
But when you are trying to hold your piss, you get anxious, especially since water streaming is supposed to make you want to pee.
And when you are trying to sleep, hearing water droplets is irritating man.
And hearing crickets constantly chirping is the last thing you need to hear when you are trying t do some revision.

And regarding sound, one of teh best sound effects can be seen in star wars.
But sorry to say, its all bullshit.
How can there be sound in space?
Every one knows that sound cannot travel in a vacuum, and space is one huge vacuum.
If sound cannot travel,how can we hear those laser beams, or the light sabers?

The Sale Worth Waiting For

Well the Great Singapore Sale(GSS) is supposed to be ongoing.
Supposedly the "Sale worth waiting for" .
Apparently, there are discounts here and there, at astronomical rates.

However, whats the point of having a big sale if i can't enjoy it?
Its no use if xbox/ PC games are on sale now, because i dont have the time to play them.
the fact that i cannot really afford the originals is besides the point.
I have exams soon, so how am i to enjoy a new game?

In fact, the things which matter to me, which i want there to have discounts, aren't on sale.

  1. Food - No discount
  2. Utilities- No discount
  3. Bus/ MRT fare- No discount
  4. Stationary/ notes from school- No discount
  5. My dad's petrol- No discount (the given 5 % does not count)

Tell me, what great Singapore sale?
Sale, well maybe.
But great?
