Short Post

"When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished by how much he'd learned in seven years." - Mark Twain

Hey, Mr Twain? I think for me it happened the other way 'round. :p

= = = = =

came across this quote recently, thought I'd share, since it resonated, despite having the wrong parent and totally off ages... but the idea is still there... *grin!*

'laters!

  2. Neome> hey you comment on the "wrong" post? heeehehehee! Anyways - yeah, kinda scary that people don't immediately know about Bok House / Le Coq D'Or... but that's typical Asian/Malaysian for ya - not so appreciative about the past... even I'm like that, maaaah,,, but still, this building has been in the middle of town since 1929!! :-( We'll see lah what sort of horror gets built on that piece of land, that will contribute to even worse traffic in the area....

Dear legitimate commenters: all comments are welcome! My sincere apologies for making you go through the word verification hurdle, tho.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?

Thanks!
