Confidence of Love

As a Chinese saying, It's better to choose someone who has the almost same background to marry you. For most of time, I believe it entirely. Especially when I am in Chinese society. This society is comprised by units of families, and the social hierachical system distinguish each other. And our parents are just too anxious about their children's future, So they want to arrange everything for them. When encountering some big events, for instance, marriage, parents always want to be the wise decision makers. This idealism passed down to their children, they became the new "picky eaters".
Many times, I want to know is our partner must be the one who has almost the same background? Can I just simply choose somebody I loved? I can't get the answer.

What is the problem with this society?

I had heard many news about divorce. Many couples are  married less than 5 years, some of them are just married in 2 years. I wonder what happened to them? For me, I am still single, but has a desire to marry in these two years.

Yeah, I admitted that  there are more choice and more lure than 10 years,20 years ago. But what is the mean of promise before a couple married?  Is this phenomenon a indication of new pop culture?  Who can we trust for a whole life?

It's a sad day for me

Today is the due date for releasing IELTS results. Though I know that I may fail on speaking module, but still hope that I can just pass score 6. I check it online, as expected, I got a high score on listening and reading, a fair score on writing, but failed on speaking. I felt so sad that I have spent so much time and money on it, then, in return, failed again. I am perplexed for my endeavours. I don't know whether I should attend the test again.

Parking system in SG

Unlike most of western countries, people may just park their cars in personal garages in suburban area. In Singapore, there is no way to do it like that because of high density of car population . According to a report, there is 750,000 cars in this tiny island country. so most of new parking system has change from surface car park to multistorey car park.

Here are some photos taken from a suburban area called Pasir Ris town.

This photo shows a surface car park which was managed by Housing & Development Board.

This photo shows a multistorey car park in the precinct of residential blocks.
       Elevation of MSCP.

Run way of MSCP.

HDB car parking system usually can be described three types. Red, Half Red and White. To register a car park lot, you need to check availabilty and paid SGD 60 for surface car park  and SGD 90 for MSCP per month. If you car has been registerd in this car park, you can park any car park. If not, you are not allow to park in red marking car park. Car park with white marking means you can park here at a rate of 50 cents per half hour by using coupon.
 While this half red car park means you can only park here from 7am to 7pm at a rate of 50 cents per half hour by using coupon.

A trip to Resort World Genting

 It has been a long time for me planing a trip. At first, I have planned to go to Phuket, Thailand. But due to lack of  Annual leave, This 3D2N trip become impossible for me currently. So I determine to change my journey to Genting Hightland.  Because it only take 2D1N and I just want some fresh air.

At first, my friend want to travel to there as a backpacker by coach. I understand that will give us more freedom, but the total cost will be much higher than travel by package which provided by travel agent, the reason for travel agent can provide a cheaper journey is that the Genting corp give subsidy to these agents, and There is a casino on the mountain Genting which is the main revenue source. and more important, we only have two days, so even we can accept the expenditure, time is a problem too. After compare with other tour packages, we choose the one of midium price.

And the trip start from here:

Marry or be married.

It may be a very old topic. but it's realistic. In western culture, Marriage is the couple's matter. but in Chinese culture, Marriage is two family's consideration. In accient times, because of more children in one family, so usually a girl will marry and live into a boy's family. and surely the child will follow father's surname.

but in nowdays, due to one child policy which started in 80's. when a new couple married, because each family want to pass down their surname to their offspring, so they often quarrel about whose surname the child should follow. For a educated boy, they may more open for most of other things except this one. why? Because Chinese culture is compriced by clan culture. If you were married and lived into a girl's family, you would be treated a guest in your original clan. and you will not be treated a member of the new clan too. For many place, girls are not allow to visit accestor tombs even on a Tomb Sweep Day since they never be consider as a clan heritor.

And "thanks to" high house price, many boys can't afford to buy a apartment unit, so those girls don't want to marry with the poor too. But life is still going on, so many youngsters just keep dating instead of marriage. Simply because dating is personal matter.

So more and more quarrel are going on, and nobody knows how to solve this conundrum.
