Of course you do. So much easier to not have to use your own brain, so much easier to not have to introspect and examine what you need and have the courage to pursue it. Instead follow the well defined path - Study for a degree your parents choose, then get into a job they find acceptable, then mar...

I really like the Indian way of arrange marriage at a certain age and then having kids at certain, it removes this confusion of whether I am ready to marry or not? Should I marry or not? What if it goes wrong? Then after marriage, oh no, this is not what I expected, should we divorce? Same thing ab...

Pisceangirl actually earlier my wife was looking for a job, but since she came to know my MBA plans, she has obstinately not searched. I had an arranged marriage and she says she doesn't know anyone in India in an arranged marriage who gets a wife as a placeholder in a particular country while he s...

@ Pisceangirl: I don't want to relocate to Pune, I want to continue in Singapore itself, even after this MBA I want a job in Singapore. I'm not mentally ready to be a father yet, I'm not sure I'll ever be ready. I had long discussions with my parents about this, about whether I'll ever want a child...

Re: seeking Legal Advice for SMS Harassment

I am recently harassed by insulting SMSes sent by some I know. Went to file for Magistrate Complaint and there was no settlement. Need to draft the changes if I want to proceed to seek justice. Have all the SMS conversations as evidence. I know he is in Singapore but I do not know the exact place w...

Never happened to me on a busy street/main road in Singapore (yet). While some cars may whizz past when the signal just changes, there is a time lag before the pedestrian sign turns green and I have not experienced drivers in SG speeding past once that happens. For me personally, moving to SG has ma...

the adrenalin does kick in when it should! I think it's only good for another year, though...after 2 years in Singapore, my "natural instincts" waned, and I felt that I need to retrain my "animal features" again...so I set out to travel alone for 10 days in Cambodia at the beginning of 2013...every...

I mean how can you notice anyone around you when your nose is glued to your phone/tablet?) The other day I was going home in the circle line, and I was standing in the middle, "slightly" glued to my phone where I'm practicing through a language app. At one of the stops, the train decelerated quite ...

I think its human nature to want to be around people who are similar. The concept of tribes and communities is centred around similarities and common goals. I've been thinking about what earthfriendly pointed out- "Use it or lose it". Children especially learn by observation and what they grow up wi...

It cost only $90 but the was better than any of the Swiss watches there . H...
