    hmm... then I think its miscommunication. She don't understand you fully, correctly. Could it be the way you phrase it? Hmm.. try letting her know what happened, and in the process hope that you can understand each other better...

    Yes, John Gray did. He will be coming to Singapore together with Bill Clinton and some other writers. The ticket price for the Platinum package is ... ehem... only S$9,951. Yes, you read correctly... S$9951.

    Yeppie, hope you find your answer soon. Someone once wrote that in order to live happier, try reduce the "SHOULD" or "SHOULDN'T" from our vocabulary.

    Bill Clinton ain't no writer.

    Anyway, I suppose the ticket price is to help pay his $50 million salary...

    He isn't but I guess his presence would throw some extra weight to the Platinum Package. It's for the Creme de la Creme of the Singapore society to rub shoulders with each other.

    The Photographers Guide to Women

    For reasons that ellude me, guys and particular male photographers find women hard to understand. In order to lessen the learning curve I have great pleasure in presenting for your reading pleasure a brief overview of women that any photog can understand and appreciate.

    Firstly we need to evaluate the different types of women out there in the wild. Women broadly speaking fall in to one of the following types.

    The Minolta model
    A really flashy job, lots of bells and whistles, but pretty poorly built, lightweight and suits guys with limited financial resources. Sort of the Ah beng version of nirvana and tends to have a fairly short life before being traded in on the newest model in the lineup.

    The Pentax model
    The most casual of all current models available, tends to be taken out for weekends and special events. Low maintaince and low keeping cost. Very economical and suited for non serious use.

    The Canon model
    A trendy type, usually in quite garish dress, racy, sleek lines and tends to be quite a good performer but has many frivilous features intended to lure the unsuspecting technophile. Markets itself to the gadget mad types and has a serious side to it. Still quite a lightweight in overall system features though does have some excellent points.

    The Nikon model
    Currently the flagship of the crop. Classic beauty and with a solid background, refined ergonomics make this model both easy on the eye and great to hold. The massive system range means there's a model and option to suit even the most demanding photographer. The main drawback is the high cost of owning such a high class model and upkeep and servicing costs are high.

    The Leica model
    By far the most expensive model to own. is reputed to be a better model than the Nikon but frankly the cost of the Leica model is beyond most mortals. Tends to use outdated technologies and is quite conservative in nature and has massive snob appeal to the social climber. Highly favoured by the artsy fartsy set. Operational maintaince costs are extremely high and this model requires lots of maintainance to not only run well but also to look good.

    The Contax model
    Highly rated model, in common with the other so called German models it's overpriced and has big snob value. Likes to promote itself as a cheaper alternative to Leica. Like the dinosaur it is quite cumbersome, slow moving and develops slowly. A great model for the guy who is trying to tell the world he's arriving as a photographer.

    Of course there are many other types of women such as economy P&S models etc.



    Note: the above post is not intended to be taken seriously. If you are stupid enough to believe this is the authors real views then you should seek medical assistance as you're off your trolley

    Dear Yeppie,

    How much do you love her? How much do you fear losing her? If your love for her and your fear of losing her is less than your pride, I suggest you break up. Otherwise, get off that butt of yours and do the right thing. You know what to do.

    Best wishes.

    Actually my problem now is not really the fact that I'm in the army and she's studying. I do have quite a bit more free time than many others but definitely not the amount of free time school-life has to offer.

    I think I can summarise our problems in one sentence. The problem is a misunderstanding of each other's intentions and actions. I feel that I do a certain thing or feel a certain way because I want things to improve between us but it ends up that she misunderstands it into something bad that I'm doing.

    Argh, my life is written in this thread and I don't know what to do.

    I meeting up, you have created a chance for the problem to be discussed and to be resolved.

    By not discussing because of "fear" of bringing it up, you have actually make the problem worse........just call her and discuss the whole thing. I promise you it will be the best move ever and there can only be 2 conculsions:

    Better understanding of each other and an improved relationship

    or

    Understanding that some differences cannot be accepted and the end of the relationship....and this is better than to discover it much later because it will surface sonner or later.

    Ok, Ok, just for you ...

    The Olympus model
    Out of production and well past its use-by date the Olympus gal is a compact some what shabby model in comparison to the other models on offer. However, Olympus has recently been concentrating it's efforts in the hitech compact range of consumer oriented gals with nice lines and some good features. Temperamental though from what's been see but with good style and sleek lines.

    Yeppie,
    Just call her and say, "Can we talk?"
    Then meet in some quiet place and really talk.
    Find out wat u mean by "don understand".
    Uni exams jus ended right?

    Anyway, also understand that there are lots of eligible guys at the uni. Be prepared, just in case. Just give all the time no matter how little it is if you value her love. Don give expecting some return, then won't be disappointed.

    Cheer up and good luck!

    "Help Yourself"
    by Tom Jones

    Love is like candy on a shelf
    You want to taste and help yourself
    The sweetest things are there for you
    Help yourself, take a few
    That's what I want you to do.

    We're always told repeatedly
    The very best in life is free
    And if you want to prove it's true
    Baby I'm telling you
    This is what you should do
    Just help yourself to my lips
    To my arms just say the word, and they are yours
    Just help yourself to the love,
    In my heart your smile has opened up the door
    The greatest wealth that exists in the world,
    Could never buy what I can give
    Just help yourself to my lips
    To my arms, and then lets really start to live

    Allllllllll right. Yeah

    My heart has love enough for two
    More than enough for me and you
    I'm rich with love, a millionaire
    I've so much, it's unfair
    Why don't you take a share
    Just help yourself to my lips
    To my arms just say the word, and they are yours
    Just help yourself to the love,
    In my heart your smile has opened up the door
    The greatest wealth that exists in the world
    Could never buy what I can give
    So help yourself to my lips, to my arms
    And then lets really start to live
    Just help yourself to my lips
    To my arms just say the word, and they are yours
    Just help yourself to the love

    In my heart your smile............[fade]
