Series One: Let's start with...

December 1. World AIDS Day. Okay, there's the awareness created. There's no such thing as Safe Sex. It's just Safer Sex. Be clever about it. Now, on with the show.
I've recently been re-introduced to the joys of the uber-diva singers of our musical history: Sarah, Ella, Billie, Betty, Dinah. the list goes one which leads me to the album I'm listening to at this very moment, Harry Connick, Jr.'s 25 album. No, he ain't a diva but he falls in that category of amazing musicianship.
I listen to a lot of music. I will end each blog entry with the Diva Series Album of the Day. If you'd like to sample it, pop into Victoria Music Centre and have a taste. Yes, still the best place to get your music fix. I don't do Towers. I'll leave the populist culture to the populists.
I love our world. This asian side that is. While the rest of the world is going through a Post-materialistic phase, we in Asia have decided that flash bling-bling is it. A lot of selfish people out there on the streets today. But that's just the way it is. A society, like an individual, has to go through the learning process. Hopefully, we'll come out the better. And that's why I love it so. Just to sit down with some caffeine and watch the daily goings-on of people. I'm prey to it to. I want everything! I don't need it, just wanting makes me feel better about myself. And then when i finally lay my hands on it... You understand, yes?
Tomorrow I do charity work, which balances out this selfishness of mine.
Oh, very important! Please smile whenever you pass someone and see them eye to eye. Don't just walk past. Staring is rude. Just smile. I smiled at someone today. He looked at me and thought I was mad. Well, like that lah.

Thank you Edwin for inviting me to your blog. I must say I echo some of your thoughts about children and about people losing the ability to communicate except via SMS. Tis a bizarre world we live in now.

Take care and keep on blogging

Jacq
