I disagree, child abuse doesn't recognize a degree or a paycheck. You think she's more likely to abuse a child because she is poor and uneducated? No way... So you would never take your child to the doctor, dentist, allow him/her to go to school or be admitted to hospital. What a cruel person you m...

Men are so simple... because he would say exactly what flight he was on and the date, describe himself and the connection he felt (which of course she talked about to her colleagues...

I think you are interpreting the word like too narrowly. It can also be used to assign your prediction for who might win in a race. At the Kentucky Derby, one might say, 'I like The Bees Knees in the 5th'.

Not my point really :roll: Even if you were in the room, the Doctor could inject them with a lethal dose of a medication, (like Dennis Quaid's twins). As SMS said, its all about choices, we can't spend 24 hours a day with our children, we have to entrust them to someone's care eventually. We have a ...

Honestly ksl, I don't see the point you are trying to make either. Condemning the parents for leaving the child with a maid, just because you chose not to? Very judgmental if you ask me.

Why don't you take out a full page ad in the Straits Times for Valentine's Day? Singapore is a small place, someone she knows is bound to see it and everyone would know you're the most romantic guy in the whole, wide world. :love: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Oh yes somebody she knows will see it ...
