In response to your second post, well, I'm sure it would've been interesting if I'd read but frankly from someone who's "on the top", I'd suggest you don't try to show off your writing skills to even the shoddiest of english teachers, rules or nor rules, there'd be corporal punishment for you dude.
I'm not trying to be harsh here, but you're setting yourself up on a really high pedestal, people are going to want to throw stones at you.

actually i dont mind if u clap hand or throw stones..lolzz..u can scold me or shake me or whatever... i just feel like gathering soem ideas/feedback..just to jog along soem other kind of inspiration..yeah. something like that.
its just that whenever i try to take stock of life and where i am heading..then unconsciously all the past events will coem and haunt me and then i suffer from a bought of depressed boredom...haiz sianz.
yup..i have a bit of a mentality attitude problem...possibly ingrained or what i dunno...but then its just a passing thing lor..osmething like mood swings that can make u climb up 25 storeys and yell out loud to the empty sky then u will feel betetr after that..haiz sianz..
but nvm lah..maybe im expectign too much or maybe i simply watch too much reality tv already or simply trying to do too many thigns at the same time...hmm yeah. wil change my style abit to c how
but then, ranting here is better than spensing $ to rant @ the doctor =)

You are confusing me. Are you at the top and have no where to go as per your first post, or are you a complete failure in life intermittently wracked by brain numbing bouts of clinical depression?

you need a friend to sort out your thoughts with you, someone who knows you and your past, not in an open forum like this.
there really is alot more to life, then what you have listed.
life is not about having a list of dos and don'ts, with little ticks in the boxes.
geez.....sounds like life will become more exciting for you as you begin discovering and living it out for real.
welcome to the real world.

Clive, are u sure you are at the top?

26th May 2004, 08:24 AM
You at the top liao? Post some of your pictures here le to let us see you are 'top' liao or not le.

ANSWER ME YOU BLOODY COWARD!

Your initial post has to be the most self-centred, arrogant, shallow and depressing story/post that I have ever read. Depressing only in the sense that a human being who has achieved so much can write something so tasteless.
I see no evidence of you ever helping anybody but yourself and this is indicative of the world in which we live in. I feel very sorry for you. Your ego has controlled your life. How you can state to be at the 'top' - surely we can only have others make that judgement for us. You are not at the top, you are merely bored with your life.
Do you love anyone other than yourself?
I suggest you read the Dalai Lama's "The Art of Happiness", take a long hard look at yourself, at the real you, not that superficial description that you posted.
I think you have crossed the fine line between confidence and arrogance.

actually, frankly, for the past 25 yrs i really dunno what i want 2do wif life..just sort of try this try that..play, work, sweat a bit here n there..live a bit, die again, get up and be another joker again..thats about it. help myself..yup, a lot..(thnx zek for the g2..lolz)..help others..so so, feel like it can lend one piece of L lens for months, dont feel like it just do nothing. so all this bits n pieces..actually amounts to nothing much , after readign what u said.
actually this is not the first time a major mood swing has crashed in...there were other explosions in the past...but this time round its kinda like a bit too major already..lolz..coz its like, im gonna start work as a working adult already, all this stuff about ORD-ing, then all my lost/MIA friends and all, and the haunting past with all the unfufilled dreams, and all the stuff i tried, all this swimming, junking film and going digital..yesterday went to seriously inspect a potential new road bike and aerobars..then the upcoming jp dream trip..then my sister getting married..and my finally coming to terms with $..a bit stress hehe..yeah..really fuddles up my self-identity(who am i? everything? nothin? something?)...too much too many happening at the same tiem i guess. probably i not that good with multi-change-management mmm.
ok i wil go keep myself occupied wif soemthing..maybe squeeze out more shots from zek's g2..keke..so that all this moodswings dont coem crashing again. helping others..i will try get used to it.
and all this frank chat n open ranting..sorry..probably wasting all ur time..but hey u also get a chance to rant a bit also right? =) like xxxboy...sometimes i really prefer pple to whack me up a bit ..a bit of a psychotic leftover from the bad childhood days? hehe =) hey Mr xxxboy, how's it feel to beat up a joker like me? good? ;-) actually its all rite..after all this is just a tok-kok session..hehe..after releasign all this pent-up uncertainties with life, i feel better now..really..lighter already. nvm..u can take me as a temporary punching bag...just imagine u r bruce lee, give me ur best bashing..beat the crap out of me..take ur leica and hammer me up.. oomph! u will feel good, i will feel relieved. dont worry, i am used to pain. in fact at times, i thrive on pain..what with swimming and cycling and running km after km...hehe..lactic acid is sometimes my best buddy during those long, lonely miles. and this probably helps u de-stress from working as well =)
swimcraze: yes, i have soem old friends from RI as well..that joker is equally psychotic...in fact last tiem during the days of the Royal Empire where every Royal Son tries to outwit, outplay, and outlast one another, he was a Public Enemy..lolz..but nonethe less i looked far ahead enuff and signed a Peace Treaty wif him took him as an Ally ;-) now he is one of my best buddies and my financial adviser as well..for good. we always go for tokkok session..sometimes his problems are even worse than my mood swings..keke =)
thnx all for sharing in this crazy tokkok session

i dunno..as in like, given a scene rite, i can roughly imagine how the pic turns out in a say 5R print. the colours, exposure, sharpness..thsoe details. its kinda liek a "feel" thing =) thats why i like t cover events..coz all that lighting, atmosphere, mood, action..its alot of thigns to imagine
