The One With Whitney Houston

Frankly, I am sick and tired of all these celebrities found dead under the influence of drugs and alcohol and bla la bla…

Social convention dictates that we should be sad and sympathetic  when someone die. But for Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston, I really want to be MAD instead of SAD!

They have all the money in the World to enjoy, and to cure themselves out of all these shit.

They have all the support of their friends and families (even the President and PM) to make sure they can go through their “worst” days..

They have the whole World of fans to cheer them where ever they go and should not have many lonely nights.

AND YET, they chose to fuck themselves up with alcohol and drugs .

Some say, it’s the loneliness of being rich and famous.

Some say, Whitney’s husband is at fault.

Excuse me… Look at Joan Collins. She’s rich and famous. She has husband problem (4 divorces!).

And after their death, friends and fans claimed that they are the best singer on the planet!
Hello???!!!! Why don’t we put more support on those who are really good and still around? Mariah Carey perhaps? ;) And Linsay Lohan.. not because she’s talented, but I think she won’t last long living this way ;)))

Anyway, my point is if they have to “go” because of illness (like Anita Mui or Roman Tam) then I am sincerely sad both on their demise and their talents. But if they CHOSE a destiny which statistics have repeatedly show THEY WILL DIE, then die they will, eventually…

The One With CNY 2012

I know... It takes longer than expected to post these pictures. But as Alex said, as we grew older getting over jet lag is even more difficult :))))

And of course, I've to travel to this...

 "Man Lin Kar Yau!" (in Cantonese:) -  Even MU knows it's CNY 2012...

After 4 x 5 = 20 rounds of 4 mins elevator lectures/pitches ;)

Alrite, back to the Dragon year. We started our long delayed journey back home and literally, it took me 23 hours door to door before I manage to smell my bed. But at least this small fellar is not too troublesome on board...

Oh boy...

At least for me, for the first time I was told that the "animal" for the lunar year doesn't necessarily starts on the first day of the Lunar New Year. It starts on a day we call "lap chuon" :) And it's on the 4th Feb 2012 this year!

Anyway, met up with more wonderful relatives and greatest friends during my visit. And if it's not my Powershot G9 giving up on me, I am sure there will be more great pictures!!

And if I am not too late to wish you all again a very wonderful and prosperous Dragon year in 2012!!! ;)
