Chat Radar

I realised when I was away on my business trip in the US, I kinda fell off the chat radar. Either people come on line when I was sleeping (time zone difference) or they come online at a time when I was engaged in meetings (I can't be bothered to switch off my wireless and hence picking up all the free wireless signals).

I supposed the sudden absent puts quite a big dent in the routine pattern of yakking with friends. I do hope that no one mistakes me to be hiding from you.

I'm not. So there.

Anyway, I was catching up with a friend (let's call her Leaky) when I discovered that she thought I "didn't want to be friends with her anymore" and hence the "radio silence".

Silly girl.

You guys never cease to surprise me. That's why I enjoyed talking to all of you so much. :)

And that's brings me to my next point. The fact that Leaky thought that way certainly reaffirms my earlier blog posts (here and here) about online friendship. That they can come in fast and really close to your core centre of friendship while at the same time able to slide away just as fast unless you are able to anchor it somehow.

That's it for today. A short entry with a long ponder.

Get cracking, people!

p.s. I am going to be away again for the next 2 weeks or so from tomorrow. So pardon me if I missed you guys again. Not hiding. Really.

Anyway, yes, Wordpress is still considering your comments as Spam. I've lowered down the Spam level, yet the same problems occur.
I do hope that no one mistakes me to be hiding from you.

Online Rules (by some of my cyber big boys...)
1. Dont do cyber sex
If U give a shit abt someone U like. Dont step into tat zone. Cos after U did tat, U will realised his wit and intelligent level goes downhill:( His vocabs will be limited to a few words like: Horny, wet, hard, DIY, cunt...Gone will be the days where he asked: May I peel U another grapes, madame? In short, he lost respect for U and all he could think abt U is a walkin pussy tat he can screw...

2. Dont fight a looney >>> Dont me on a mission crusade and believe yr power of persuasion will lead to stangers joining hands and agree with U. Diff people have diff POV. There is no 100% right or wrong in every issue. Even the gd stuff, when overdose can be bad. California daddy said: U are not in a mission to save the world and only afew ladies look gd wearin superwoman superbra costume:P Will U agrue with a looney on the street? I say: No way! He added: Then why argue or be angry with a faceless looney in cyber?

3. Time off >>> U can sense tat an online relationship is tippin the scale. Maybe its wise to have time off. Relationship needs space. Maybe its a gd idea to join the hotties on LOST for a month!

4. Quit the fantasy >>> When U are little, U reckon sittin on santa’s lap with a big pressie is cool. When U are older, U fantasized abt sittin on tis faceless dude’s lap. Strange huh? Been there, done tat. We just need to take down our rose-tinted glasses and pull back a little and realised tat its not a gd idea after all....Didnt yr parent told U, never trust a stanger?

5. Come clean >>> For any relationship to be strong. Sincerity counts. Be trueful. Come on, tell me U wear a purple leotard, or disco dancin in spandex sometimes:) Maybe U are secretly lip singin to Justin timberlake all the time at office. Well, I was groovin to NKOTB with Tian ar! while chillin out at dinner afew hrs back...and I sang: I’ll be lovin U forever...

winter: You know me well. No wonder you are my ang pai. :)

hitomi: Love being invisible? I think you drink plain water grow up one.

OLLie: The easiest of all XMM to sian. How to forsake you?

KingMeng: No lah but is it only me who has this problem? Maybe I should get your MSN nick as a backup. I'll get it from OLLie when she wakes up later when the sun is shining brightly on her backside.

Lynne: You haven't been blogging as frequently. So busy har?

KoreanHouseWife: Girl ah. You totally lost me there liao. How is this comment relevant to the topic on hand?
