Capitalism: A Love Story

This is a Micheal Moore movie, America’s most hated film director.  Bought a pair of tickets to watch this movie with Pinky, thinking that it would be a romantic show; so much for the ‘A Love Story’ at the back of title.  Ironically, we missed the word Capitalism (but search my vocabulary, its not even in my dictionary)  So the first 15minutes of the show hypnotised Pinky to her dreams, sleeping comfortably on my shoulder.  Not wanting to spend my money to sleep in a theater, I encouraged myself to stay awake throughout the session and Im so proud of it.

If you’re not a very political or patriotic person, the movie isn’t right for you in the first place.  I don’t even care about the election in my nation, why should I care about the states, moreover it doesn’t really concern us?  But you’re so damn wrong!

The movie gives a good perspective on how Capitalism has affected the US for the past 8 years under the management of ‘you-know-who’, whos been making the Rich people richer and the poor people poorer by taking away everything they have, irregardless of their situation.  That was obviously something that wasnt shown in the media, did it?  And how companies benefited profited from the employees who have died by buying insurance on their behalf and stating themselves as beneficiary.

And oh, this made me recall why people would vote for the President, Mr Barack Obama, one who emphasized on CHANGE during his debates for election.  They have been on the down side for the past 8 years and someone should end the deed, not continuing it.  The election results flashed in the movie was also something that wasnt showed on our screens.  People actually CRIED because of the president they voted for has won!

In Sing ka pore, FAT HOPE.  Why would you cry?  I dont even remembering there was 2 parties fighting for the position?  Even if there was a Good and Bad president to choose from, with the white collars in the cabinet, do you think the so-called bad president can have things done his way?  Unless the white changes to become the black, then that will be a worrying point.

Valentines Day

No doubt, I’ve always used to whine about businesses during this period of time.  Love is like, happening everyday and why must everyone use this special day, only, to express their love to their love ones.  Its a profitable day for businesses and relationships because this is the day many couples get together, but just for the sake of this day and then couldn’t withstand the days after that.  I’ve got everything against this day, believe me.  I hate restaurants for being fully booked with their ‘lame’ pre-defined couple set with dishes that sounds so norm but yet costly; I wish the stocks would jet up as much as the flowers today and there are many, many girls with flowers on their hand walking around proudly.  What about those single souls?

Nevertheless, even with all these whines, I’ve decided to re-bring myself to accept this day that faithfully belongs to all the girls in the world who deserves a day where their special one brings them to a nice restaurant and present them flowers.

Our day wasn’t really splendid, I screwed it up by over-sleeping in my warm bedroom with my girl shouting over at my window shouting me to wake up.  Initially, I thought it was a surprise from her but then, when I saw the clock, OH SHIT.  I was late for a date, ON THIS DAY! damn it.  Not spoiling the day, I hoaxed her with a nicely done 12R (12″ x 18″) photo in a wooden photoframe.  She melted.

So then, we went to Jurong Point after that for a meal at the food court with our favourite dishes, Curry Chicken and Pork Ribs.  I am not a miser, I am just trying to save more so that we can have better food and drinks later at the restaurant in CHIJMES.  I brought her to my school for a short while as I have a dance rehearsal for this coming thursday; yes I will be dancing.  Gees could you just stop laughing! I then passed her the bouquet of 12roses with a silly monkey that is so cute, I bet she can’t resist.  She love soft toys, and I know I’ve given her most of the things she needed, so why not pamper her once again with a soft toy into her collection?

After the rehearsal, I brought her over to Cityhall, CHIJMES and setlled down in the restaurant that I’ve booked last week, Le Baroque.  My friends told me not to go there because of their customer service but still, I took the shot because I know I will like the ambience.  I’ve always looked forward to fine dining in a restaurant with live music.  Although this isn’t posh enough, at least it was in the center of CHIJMES, open aired with couples surronding us and love was really all around.  We ordered a Meat Platter for two (I love meat; Im a carnivore!) and a Long Island Tea for her and a bittersweet cough-syrup-like Screaming Orgasm.  We sat down by the table from 7.30pm and enjoyed our dinner all the way till 10pm (the servings were really BIG!)

Then I brought her into the bar with the live band, something which I have always wanted to do for the past 2years.  I enjoy listening to live bands, they’re cool and worth the money to spend, to watch them perform although they’re not any superstars, but its just nice to listen to live music.

So today, I’ve finally done something which I’ve always wanted to do for the past few years and thus, this day is specially well spent =)

To end this post, I love you baby and I know you feel the same way too!
