Yesterday, I had the fun of doing some massive eating. On top of getting up at 8AM in the morning to go out with a friend to eat breakfast because she needed someone to pick up/spend time with her while her car was in for repairs, my aunt/uncle also came to visit a few hours later to do an early celebration for my birthday at our nearby sushi buffet. Let me just say beforehand that it was a very filling day. Because I already knew my aunt/uncle was coming in at around lunch time, I decided to take it easy on breakfast. The breakfast was pretty expensive, $8.50 but it did have a good variety and the presentation was nice. I suppose mid-class places always have these outrageously inflated prices… I had a breakfast, not a steak lunch, lol. Not my type of place, but she chose it, so oh well. Definitely not a place I’d take my BeBe though or any girl on a date for that matter. If I’m paying those kind of prices, the décor better be stunning, like Spice Avenue or Lord Byron’s. Although I had to watch my time and make sure I was home before my family arrived, there was still a good 3 hours for E and I to talk.
My conversations as per usual, go from left, right to centre, wherever the topic ends up going. One of the more interesting and on-topic (for this blog) that came up was the early maturation of girls and the removal of once, innocent little girls. The amount of information in this world available to boys and girls these days severely cripple the innocent childhood that I and many preceding generations had, especially when it comes to topics of sexuality. For those who don’t know me well, I do err on the side of liking younger girls and by younger, I don’t mean underage. However, give me an 18-year-old girl and I’d be all over that, even though I’m effectively 7-years older than her, lol. Beyond the amount of knowledge floating around these days, you have more occurrences of puberty hitting girls at a much younger age defined as precocious puberty when it occurs before 8 years old. The earlier on-set of puberty in girls are definitely scary for the guys, haha. My friends and I have all-too-many-times looked at a girl, thought we’d take a second glance, only to notice that she definitely did not look legal. Having saw a “mature-looking” Asian girl in Kelseys the other day while eating dinner with my friend, I mentioned to him, “Hey, check out that cute girl over there.” Only for him to reply, “Dude, that girl looks like she’s still in high-school.” Ewwww. She had the full package, voice was no longer squeaky little-girl voice, she had the upper-body parts developed and the height, but the conversations they were carrying out were definitely indicative of being high-school girls. This was not the first time or the last something like this will happen.
Now of course to say the only issue of early puberty is because we guys can’t tell the difference would be truly wrong. The severity of earlier on-set of puberty for girls is that it could be indicative of existing health conditions such as tumours, social behaviour issues and effects on psychological development. While menstruation used to begin at the average of 15-years, it has now been reduced to 12.5-years and most notably is the fact that these age averages might be dropping even more as a result of early female maturation. Part of the reason why we’re hearing about so many teenage pregnancies is that this early on-set of puberty has resulted in girls becoming an earlier target of sexual interest. At such young ages, girls don’t have the mature mentality to deal with sexuality in a responsible method, thus, many are falling prey to becoming pregnant as a result of unsafe sex. To downplay the feeling of sexual arousal to boys and girls when puberty occurs would be foolish. Hormones are surging throughout the body and people do uncontrollable things. Many people claim that girls are becoming sluttier and guys look up to being players, but the reality is that during the phases of puberty, the body is extremely horny. Mind you one of the guys I used to hang out with had this really bad reputation of having to spend at least 2-3 hours in his room and it certainly wasn’t for the purpose of studying. Girls are steadily catching up to boys. Where masturbation for girls used to be a frowned-upon activity, it is becoming more prevalent and a talked-about subject between the female populace. For guys, it is almost assumed it is done, so it is even more awkward for a guy to not admit doing it.
I remember how innocent boys and girls used to be, me being one of them. We didn’t need to know those “adult things”, we played in the park, throw rocks in the pond, played “doctor” without sexual implications and knowing any better, got my first kiss in kindergarten and had no sexual urges, had a crush on my elementary school French-teacher, and wondered what cool things the vending machine on the girl’s washroom wall gave out… was it chips, pop, gum (how come they have it, and we don’t? :() The reality is that knowledge of sexuality is becoming more prevalent at younger ages and in the past year, have spent more time doing business of installing parental filtering/monitoring software on computers more than anything. I can’t remember the first time I wanted to see a female body naked, it was really a long time ago, lol. Don’t forget that years ago, such access to material was considerably harder since it was on paper-media (magazines), late night TV (was asleep already) and the internet was text-based.
This leads me to the point where I truly miss the innocence in girls. Poh Ching claims to be innocent, but I know better 😛 Tsk tsk. Is it better for our current generation to know more and be aware or is it better to know less and not as aware? Not knowing will definitely allow for a longer period of innocence within our younger generations, however, may have a “shock” value when they find out about adult-related subjects. On the other hand, knowing more and being aware has brought along the side-effects of curiosity. Sometimes the more humans know, the worse off they are, especially those of inquisitive nature. Luckily for me, all the girls I’ve dated with the exception of one have all been the innocent type… or at least I perceive them to be innocent, lol. I prefer my girls not to know too much and still have the innocent angel within them. I’m not sure whether I’d want my girls to actually understand a dirty joke if I made one, haha… I’d be slightly scared if she did, especially particularly bad ones. See how annoying humanity is – we always want the best of both worlds – innocent and not innocent, hah.
Then it makes you think does a point of innocence when you reach into your twenties that it is still “cute”? I made that point to P.C, asking her where you cross the line of being innocent to the point when you just seem retarded, lol. One of my best friends’ cousin really stirs our thoughts when it comes to innocence. They used to live together and I’d hang out at their house all the time and my friend (henceforth denoted as M and her cousin, B) and seriously B is like the pinnacle of innocence. Every time M and I would make dirty jokes or references, B would ask, “What does that mean?” For a while, M and I thought that B was just trying to act innocent and pretend she doesn’t know what we’re talking about – but that’s not the case – she was truly clueless. Even today being in her 3rd year of university, she is still awkwardly innocent, I wonder how she survives. Given how her boyfriend is constantly waiting to pounce on her (sexually), it makes me feel bad for the poor guy having such a ditzy girlfriend, LOL. Don’t think I have a problem with B though, she’s a very gentle, kind, outgoing and pretty girl – I just think that when you’re too innocent, sometimes you just become a bit socially awkward. Just these two are totally opposites of each other… the guy can’t wait to rip her clothes off and the girl is totally clueless that he’s thinking about these things (while all the other 9 people in the room can clearly see it). Not sure who I feel more sorry for 😀 There are more stories about her, but I’ll leave it for another time.
I actually had more to write about this, but I swear I’m getting old and senile (and will be even OLDER in 11 days, ewwwww). Once I slept on this information last night, by the time I woke up this morning, I had totally forgot all about the important content I wanted to include. Therefore, this entry will have to abruptly end since I don’t have an “end point” for this topic. Perhaps I will think of it and continue to update this entry if it hasn’t been pushed off the first page or simply continue on a new once. Sheesh, age hurts! Given how fast girls are reaching puberty and thus starting their periods, perhaps I should start investing money into feminine hygiene stocks as hopefully women will have more menstruating years before menopause! Let’s see how much money I have in the bank account and start looking into it, haha.
For those who regularly keep up with my blog will know I always attempt to present accurate information to all readers. With this said, I am always open to recommendations or suggestions from my readers, especially when it pertains to the accuracy of the said information. On this note, I recently had an ex-ex girlfriend of mine (and you know who you are, THANK YOU :)) proofread my information, especially ones relating to health/medical references (due to her expertise/studies :P). She has recommended me make some modifications to my previous post to ensure I clearly articulate my words for my male and female readers . As such, I have revised my prior post with these changes.
I would like to highlight the important changes and additions with respects to the following. Please note under her recommendation that I should bring to light that women should not arbitrarily decide that symptoms experienced are automatically of a vaginal yeast infection, especially for those who have not experienced one before… therefore such addition has been made:
With these symptoms said, it is with due caution when you decide to make a self-diagnosis of a regular vaginal yeast infection based on these potential symptoms. For women who have never encountered a yeast infection beforehand, it is best to refer to a medical professional. In the event that the symptoms experienced is in fact NOT as a result of a yeast infection, improper use of OTC treatments may further aggravate an existing condition.
…and furthermore please take note that vaginitis is not ONLY caused by a yeast infection, but of many other causes. Please feel free to refer to a wiki entry about vaginitis. I have made an addition in my statement to reflect that a yeast infection is the more common cause of vaginitis rather than it being the “only” cause of it:
The more common cause of vaginitis is the inflammation of the vagina and this infection occurs when new yeast is introduced into the vaginal area, or when there is a more-than-normal amount of yeast present in the vagina.
Thank you for taking the time to read this update and I hope to continue to provide all my readers with the most accurate information that I am aware of!

I love how Poh Ching always manages to merge multiple topics in a single post… heck, I’m even starting to do that because of her! 😕
Ohai. Here I am. Before I go M.I.A again, let me just crap a bit more here.
This post will be on the PG-13 side so kids, if you are reading this – go no further. Like those kids will listen.
Please click on this link to help you understand the following opinion.
The statistic is sad. SAD SAD SAD. Where’d all the good guys go? Are the male population going in the reverse direction of the evolutionary line? We are supposed to get more civilized, not give in to animalistic instincts like sex. Sexing-up random people isn’t going to sow anything. Men would say that their instinct to keep sexing multiple females is in the genes. It’s biological. It’s in men to pro-create lots of babies. So what? Do we have need for one man making lots of babies now? Do we have need to build armies? The world population is getting out of hand – less space for us to live, rising prices of land.
BUT we can’t control it – when the urge comes you gotta do something about it? Instead of banging some girl (or guy, if that’s to your liking) whom you do not know how clean she really is (click link here for more info =P), or how many disco sticks she’s danced with (EewwWw yuck! Sticking your personal lil brother where another person’s brother has been? EEEEWWWWW!!!), why not stick to one privy chamber which you know is clean, and yours only, yours truly? Or if you don’t have one, per T-700 (a.k.a The Terminator a.k.a the role Arnold Schwarzenegger played la lol):
“Talk to the hand”. (p.s. One step leads to another, needless to describe la kay don’t pretend donno!)
OK, another analogy: Do you prefer to take a crap in public toilets or at home? It’s troublesome to crap in public toilets because:
1. Some idiot peed all over the toilet seat.
2. Some idiot left his/her shoeprints on the seat.
3. Some idiot forgot to flush.
4. It freaking stinks to the high heavens.
5. How clean is “clean”?
6. You do not know about the previous user – did he have a contagious disease?
7. Is that a disgusting bug crawling stealthily under the seat?
8. OMG. Is that ……………… hair? Is that – OMG OMG…….. pubic hair?!?!!! What the HELL! GAWD *stunned speechless nothing to say and move out as quickly as possible without doing what you initially intended to do in the loo*
So, that’s my view on visiting prostitutes. Dirty lah. Sorry, no offence intended to anyone. Maybe some are quite hygienic, I don’t know. Come on la, at least make it “long term”. Look at my idol, Madonna and her model toy-boy boyfriend. She can afford a troop of toy-boys but she prefers to keep just one, young, handsome boyfriend. Clean mar. You know he isn’t sticking it in any other privy chamber rented out belonging to someone else.
I totally LOL’ed at some of the post tags I had to put in this…
I dunno P.C…. you are the one who “left something red” on the counter for your brother to find, lol… not sure who’s the one dirty wor XD

Hi everyone! I need your help! The video below is something my classmates and I did for a class project. We need all the view counts we can get, so help us spread the video to all your friends, friend’s friends, family, family’s friends, extended families… you get the drift.
I’ll be eternally grateful! You can also watch it every day hahaha. xD
It’s our very first time doing a video like this so please support and be nice kay? It’ll only take less than 2 minutes of your time!
Again, a million thanks if you would spread the video to everyone you know!
For Amy and interested readers…. here’s the Always Infinity Heavy Flow Pads released August of last year in Canada.
This is the box I got with S for the first time… actually, this one is the 32 edition, we only got the (smaller) 18 box since we didn’t know how good it’d be.
The thinness of the pad is quite shocking…. like seriously, even I was impressed and that doesn’t happen easily, LOL!
One thing different about this particular pad is that there is a definitive difference of “front” and “back” – therefore, it is necessary to have the direction you should place the pad down on your panties on the sticker, otherwise the features of the pad might not be utilized properly.
The wings are interesting with the appearance of “2 flaps per wing” … the adhesives are extremely sticky, so you don’t want to make a mistake when placing it. Also, try not to get anything else stuck to the wings (owie?) or any sticky area of the pad unless you enjoy pain. The pad design is interesting, not like the usual symmetrical designs of other pads. The wetness is well distributed throughout the pad as you flow onto it. It does absorb quite fast, although if you have a sudden gush (like most pad failures), it tends to “pool at the top” giving a very gross feeling for a moment, but thereafter it goes back to being dry again (I know, wow eh). The amount of flow Infinity pads are able to absorb is deceiving by the thinness, lightness (feels like feathers… seriously) and the appearance that it won’t absorb much. The only gripe I have about the pad is probably the unusual smell of it, probably the infinicel technology (proprietary Always tech that makes it “Infinity”) they use. Also, once the pad has been saturated, the feeling of it changes to be a very “spongey and bouncy” feeling. I remember Poh Ching warned about using pads with gel in them (which absorbing gels were made by Always a while ago but quickly disappeared off the market… I guess now I know why) as they caused health issues. Nevertheless, although it feels like gel, apparently that it is not. The fast-acting properties of the infinicel is amazing such that when you look through the bottom of the pad after saturation, you can clearly see the saturation and how much it really absorbs while keeping the top layer against the skin dry.
Thought I’d also write something about vaginal yeast infections because apparently one of my readers think that might be the case for her 😛 Eep! I’ll simplify it for the guys anyways, so it doesn’t overload their brains (or grossness factor) of it!
Yeast is a fungus scientifically referred to as Candida. Yeast is generally present on normal human skin and in areas of moisture, such as the mouth and vagina. Between 20%-50% of healthy women normally carry yeast in the vaginal area. Vaginal yeast infections, the most common form of vaginitis, is medically referred to as Vaginal Candidiasis. Vaginitis is inflammation of the vagina and this infection occurs when new yeast is introduced into the vaginal area, or when there is a more-than-normal amount of yeast present in the vagina. A woman’s immunity level plays a large role in whether she is more resistant or susceptible to vaginal yeast infections. If a woman’s health is already in a compromised state or she is taking specific medication, it might kill off protective bacteria, thus allowing yeast to multiply and spread until vaginal tissue and lining are inflammed. As a note to the guys, although vaginal yeast infections are not considered a form of STD, if you engage in penile intercourse with an infected woman, it is possible you will encounter symptoms of skin irritation.
Since I’m not a doctor, I’m just going to quote some symptoms of vaginal yeast infections:
- vaginal itching
- vaginal burning
- vaginal irritation
- painful urination
- painful sexual intercourse
- odorless vaginal discharge (may be thick whitish-gray and cottage-cheese-like or may be watery in consistency)
As gross or as funny as some of those symptoms may sound, they are not as funny as one would imagine as it can cause mental distress, physical discomfort and possibly health complications if left untreated.
Always wear white cotton panties; avoid nylon and lycra as much as possible; never wear panty hose without wearing cotton panties underneath.
Post menopausal women and women who use oral contraceptives may find using a vaginal lubricant during sexual intercourse helpful in preventing vaginal discomfort and irritation.
Yeast is a normal inhabitant of the intestinal tract; always wipe from front to back after a bowel movement to prevent transferring yeast to the vaginal area; care must be taken during sexual intercourse to prevent vaginal infections from occurring due to contamination with organisms from the bowel or rectum.
Some women find eating one cup of yogurt a day when taking antibiotics is helpful to prevent the yeast infections that often follow antibiotic treatment; however yogurt alone will not cure vaginal yeast infections.
Avoid perfumed bath additives, as well as powders in the vaginal area. Douching is never a good idea since it washes away the natural protective mucous of the vagina and leaves women susceptible to vaginal infections.
Suffice to say a lot of variations in a woman’s life or changes in regular practices may make her susceptible to a yeast infection. However, these can easily be cured using over-the-counter medications or through the referral of a medical practitioner. It is quite common for a woman to have a vaginal yeast infection at least once in her life, so it is nothing to be ashamed of and most pharmacies, drug stores or even supermarkets will have products such as Monistat or Vagistat which can help reduce/remove the effects of a vaginal yeast infection. For the guys, think of a really bad jock-itch but for the girls and you will understand. Be a great boyfriend, husband or even just a great friend and help her pick-up a yeast infection curing kit – she will love you for it!
Since I doubt I can really write much on this topic myself, I will post up material related to this special day! Although it is a week long commemoration, today is the “official” day!
Cheers to all the strong women in the world! Happy IWD, please take the time to let the women around you, especially ones you love know how much you value and cherish them!
March 8, 2010
Strong Women. Strong Canada. Strong World.
In 1977, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution calling on member states to proclaim a day for women’s rights and international peace. Following the United Nations’ lead, Canada chose March 8 as International Women’s Day.Each year at this time, Canadians celebrate progress toward equality for women and their full participation, reflect on the challenges and barriers that remain, and consider future steps to achieving equality for all women, in all aspects of their lives.Over time, International Women’s Day has grown into a week-long series of commemorative events and activities across the country. International Women’s Week 2010 begins on Sunday, March 7 and wraps up on Saturday, March 13.
We encourage all Canadians – women and men, girls and boys – to promote International Women’s Day / International Women’s Week. Better yet, why not organize your own IWD/IWW event in your community, organization, workplace or school?
March 8 is International Women’s Day (IWD), the highlight of International Women’s Week (IWW). Each year at this time, Canadians celebrate progress toward equality for women and their full participation, reflect on current challenges and consider future steps in achieving equality for all women, in all aspects of their lives.
International Women’s Week 2010 begins on Sunday, March 7, and wraps up on Saturday, March 13. The Government of Canada’s theme for 2010 is Strong Women. Strong Canada. Strong World.
This theme reflects the government’s action to encourage more women and girls to participate in leadership roles, thereby helping them thrive, reach their full potential, fulfill their dreams and build a more prosperous Canada.
For Canadians, equality means women and men sharing in the responsibilities and obligations, as well as in the opportunities and rewards, of life and work. In Canada, leadership is key across society – from the private sector to governments to the general public. Leadership is important, so that people of all origins, generations and backgrounds can participate fully in our country’s economic, social and democratic life, and ultimately, in improving the state of the world.
- In 1977, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution calling on member states to proclaim a day for women’s rights and international peace. Following the United Nations’ lead, Canada chose March 8 as International Women’s Day.
- International Women’s Week 2010 takes place from Sunday, March 7, through to Saturday, March 13.
- This year, the theme is Strong Women. Strong Canada. Strong World., reflecting the Government’s firm belief that increasing women’s participation, and access to leadership roles and opportunities will help women and girls reach their full potential and help build a more prosperous Canada.
- Canadian women have made enormous strides. The current Government has the highest percentage of women in Cabinet in Canadian history. The House of Commons currently has 67 women.
- Women are also increasing their participation in other aspects of Canadian life. Currently, women make up the majority of full-time students in most university faculties.
- The labour force participation rate for working-age women (15-64 years) has risen from 68.2 per cent to 74.3 per cent over the past decade (1997-2008). In 2007, women made up 35 per cent of all self-employed individuals.
- There has also been a long-term increase in the share of women who are working in managerial positions. In 2007, 35% of those employed in managerial positions were women.

With the theme of this blog in mind, I found a non-political theme created in the Late Soviet times, highlighting March 8th as a day of celebration of beauty and motherhood of women.
Together, men and women will bring the Earth together in harmony!
Whatever you give a woman, she will make it greater. Give her sperm, she will give you a baby. Give her a house, she will give you a home. Give her groceries, she will give you a meal. Give her a smile and she will give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what she is given. So if you give her crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit…
Yes, she’s quite little…. got a Lenovo S10e Ideapad to play with (I didn’t pick it because of its name :?). This is not meant to replace my desktop or regular-sized laptop by any means, but it does add convenience to having something small to port around! It was given to me for free, so I’m not going to complain even if there are some faults. I should bug my boss to get me the 12.1″ version instead, lol. I heard they made the keyboard a lot better as well in the x10-series! I’ll try to “trade it in” if we suddenly decided to buy into it, haha.
I didn’t have time to rip out the digital camera, so I have some really crappy pictures of it. I took it with my iPhone, which also meant there were no light adjustments or flash (and even if it did, was not very good). Today was the first day I actually put it to “real use”, taking it to my friends house while hanging out and being able to use a computer. It was lightweight and portable beyond belief, weighing a mere 2 1/2 lbs. Given the processor is only 1.6 Ghz, I feared performance issues but ran into none at all even while using MSN Messenger, Skype, 2 browsers and PPLive all at the same time. I’m not going to write a review about it… or even if I am, not right now since I’m tired. However, here’s some preliminary pictures because I love it so much 😀
These pictures are not meant to be “professional pictures”…. they were taken with a phone-camera in poor lighting conditions as well – thus some of the awkward colours.
Well time to sleep now… that is… AFTER I finish watching some Chinese TVB Dramas on my netbook first, weehhh!
