However, I was an hour late when I reached City Square. I'm normally quite a punctual guy (when I'm not going wedding dinners), and I take pride in my discipline. But that day I had misjudged the time required.
Naturally my travelling companions asked why I was that late, but I didn't felt like explaining. When you try to justify your actions, like the bus was late, the queue were longer than usual etc.... it normally creates negative energy to yourself and no one loves a whiner.
Moreover, I only have myself to blame for not choosing to come out an hour earlier to cater for such possible situations.
So I told them “I give you 2 choices. Either you hear my lame excuses, or I treat you free drinks to make up for it.” And my companions enthusiastically chose the latter. ^_^
I ended up spending more to treat them bak kuh teh (pork rib soup) to atone for my lateness. I say it's money well spent!
And the rest of the day went on really well, eating + shopping + massaging at cheaper prices than Singapore, what’s there not to love?
2011 will be my year.
Don't lay blame, and don't waste time justifying.
Gotta take responsibility, look forward, and never look back (except for those nostalgic happy memories).
Let year 2011 be your year too, my friends!
