I gave Money a +5 rating in my first review of the year & you can read all about why I love it there. So, why do I hate it? I hate it when people use money as a weapon. Yes, a weapon. That's when it destructs and destroys everything good that is associated with it. People do it unconsciously, I've seen it happen many times. Between husband and wife, parents & child, friends, associates, colleagues at work. It happen in areas whereby there's a conflict of interest mostly. I repeat, I hate it when it's being used as a weapon!

I wrote another review on Love and as with money, it was a +5 rating. Love gets into trouble when people uses love as a means to an end. It's like if you love me, you have to do this. You know what I mean.

I have had a distinct encounter with jealousy when I first joined VirtualTourist.com. Both from others and both within myself. I've seen what others do and it was evil. It was to the extent some people were crucified for it. And I mean it for real. I've also seen it in myself but how I eventually overcome it. Overcoming jealousy, well, when you've done it, then you really know what it means to love it. That's self-defeating, in a good way. And that's when you know you can be proud of yourself.

A little greed is good. It is what makes this whole world propels to new levels in terms of technology, creativity and development. It's like I'm greedy, I want to see at least a hundred countries before my life ends. I know, I know, that's greed. You do agree it's not something that's harmful to the society at large, don't you? I like to think of myself as a major contributor to world economy, hehe... I spent whatever I can in those countries, not to mention it keeps many people in their jobs! If more of us do so, the world would be a better place. We learn about others' cultures & in understanding, we have less to fight about! I can never understand why people fights about religions, I mean, look, I was born in a Muslim country, brought up by Buddhist family (my grandparents were but my parents aren't religious) and educated by Catholic schools. All these can coexist as far as I'm concerned. Perhaps Greed has something to do with all the fightings? Not religion per se!

For one, I love "Ladies first". For another, I hate it when the westerners get first class treatment on Singapore Airlines! It's a case of (in terms of priorities): 1. westerner men 2. western women 3. asian men 4. asian women! That sucks! And they call themselves an Asian airline? That's why SIA didn't get to the top of the list as far as I'm concerned! They are not too subtle about this. Otherwise I'd say it's a great airline.

I love work only in areas that interest me. I've been lucky in that except for one fact, going to work early in the morning, by that I mean 9 am official time, is a drag! I am a night person, not an early morning person. My brain doesn't function until the afternoon at the earliest. It's no wonder I don't do so well in day jobs! I need to find work that starts in the evening instead. Perhaps time to work offshore markets instead! Work is something I love to do though (as long as I've control over its hours of operation, hehe...). It's not only fulfilling, it pays for all I've ever wanted and more. Trust me, you will love work when you go without it for a few weeks or months. I've a friend who used to complain about work but as soon as she had chance to rest for weeks, she's looking forwards to work! It's a case of can't live with it, can't go without it ;-)
God forgives me for saying this & my parents will probably disown me for it. Well, you know it, you've been through it, if not once, at least twice in your life. If you haven't, you are of a different breed, I reckon. My parents love us and we love them... just, well, they haven't got a clue how to love us. I don't really blame them as they are from a different generation, however, it's tough to live with them. At times, they drive me crazy, especially when under the same roof. Otherwise, I've no complain against them, lol...
