While reading The Star newspaper today, stumbled upon an article about Overheard New York.
I got a friend that likes to read other people's sms text written in the bus or train. Sometimes, I do it too! Quite hilarious. Some people bitching about their work, life-partner, lack of life-partner, etc.......Privacy? What privacy??!! Ever been inside Komuter during peak hours? Honey, count urself lucky if you can breathe!
Once, I overheard a lady argued with her bf (I think) while I'm buying LRT ticket. She is so pissed off that her bf said she is domineering and do not respect his freedom. Her answer? Cannot be written here. But she hungs up on him. A real life drama. No need to subscribe to Astro Wah Lai Toi. Save a looooootttt of money too.
So, if you value your privacy and do not like people to OVERHEARD/OVERREAD your 'discussions', better keep mum. Especially whenever the Komuter trains are delayed yet again and people are trying to find brief entertainment.
Reading - none right now. Where the heck is my sister's Stephen Kings Anthology book?
Listening to - Savage Garden - To the Moon and Back.

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.
- T.A. Conrad
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
