I dunno why but I found this pic kinda Matrix-like~!
And Aidan looks like a baby-Neo hehe...

Yeah, Little Gym again today..did the same exercises cept that this time round, I had hubby with me so he was the one who got to carry the not-that-light li' one about. Hubby actually said that he was aching 'cause Aidan seemed to be getting heavier n heavier and by the end of the session, he was exhausted (my hubby, not Aidan)..And I had all the time to relax and take numerous pics of the wee one.. We should do this more often :)


Why is it that driving brings out the worst in people? Hubby is one of the most laidback, easy going fella I've ever known..Between both of us, I'm the one who's more impulsive and tend to lose my temper more easily though my anger does blow over pretty quickly too. We really don't quarrel/disagree much for a married couple 'coz we are pretty nonchalent abt stuff and let one other have our way most of the time..

But when he's driving, he's a completely different person..He' s so darn aggressive and yaya-papaya on the road!! If someone cuts into his lane (even if they indicate), that fella's in the wrong..if he tries to cut into someone's lane and the other car refuses to budge, the latter is also in the wrong..hmmm.. He always tells me that it's safer to be an aggressive than careful [translate :cowardly] driver coz it prevents accidents more ..somehow, he has managed to get a clean record [no speeding tickets] for the longest time..though how he did it, I really don't know.

When I told him how I felt abt his driving, he claims that it's a well-known theory that people are generally bastards when they are driving..even a cartoon character..and cited the example of Goofy [friend of Mickey Mouse]..He said he saw this on cartoon network before. In that cartoon, Goofy was one heck of a nice guy who wouldn't even step on an ant..but when he is on the road, his personality changes and will start cussing n swearin at drivers/jay walkers who gets in his way..*sigh* I can't believe he is using Goofy as a reason to justify his actions on the wheel~

Hi Angie, finally got to meet you, Clare & Lily irl. Was quite pleasantly surprised though not totally as Jean did infm me that you will be coming for the class after Ashley's & Ally's.

As for driving, yes it does seem to bring out the worst in people. My hubby's pretty much like yours, in fact I'm very sure he shares the same belief as your hubby - they can do no wrong, when driving on the road. Best part is, he doesn't even bother to indicate when he wants to cut lane! Actually, I'm exactly an angel when I drive too, especially when I'm rushed for time. I'll not hesitate to honk and curse if there' a slow car blocking my way.

Btw, I like the special fx on the photos. May sharing how you did that?

Heh..I like pics on LJ. I recognised Jean immediately when she was walkin out of Forum..And same for you when i saw you in LG. And Ashley looks exactly like her pictures!! And as usual i was late or else I could have spoke to u guys more..I gotta learn to be more punctual :P..

Hmm..honking & cussin if justified I think it's okay..In fact, sometimes, I do help hubby to cuss at an inept driver (eg,a lazy driver who just drives straight when it's a curved road grr)..And usually, it's either a mercs or bmw..(i really have no idea why!)

Okay..for the fx..heh, i did it tru shutterfly.com coz they have a function to 'blur' the edges of the pic. I think there should be someway to do it at photoshop but i have no idea how to..

We've had tons of discussion with regards to this "road rage" behaviour in ALL drivers :p

The light side to it is that ... it brings out the dark side in us! The serious side is that, a car which is a powerful machine. You control it and there is real danger involve if it is not handled well. Thus the sub-conscious would have some amount of fear, which amounts to the heighten pressure in making sure all goes well and no bloody idiots pissed you off! *LOL*

Oh and so far, i have not seen a "peaceful" driver yet :D Coz they all crack sooner or later!!! Bwahahaha!

Does my theory sounds logical to you?
Aug. 2nd, 2003 10:24 am (UTC)
so therefore, the bigger/more powerful the car, the more of an asshole one will be, which explains why most of the horrible drivers are drivin mercs/bms and huge lorries hehe..

heh..peaceful driver ah? I do know of some drivers who doesn't get that aggravated while drivin tho..

Aug. 2nd, 2003 10:26 am (UTC)
Erm, these days it's not enough to be a safe driver. You might be a safe driver, but many other drivers around you just aren't. So I adopt a kinda aggressive-defensive driving posture ... not gonna give way to every tom, dick and harry who feels like cutting into my lane without bothering to signal ... or tolerate ridiculous road hogs who drive way WAY below speed limits ... or drivers who take forever to change lanes... Grrrr! Heheh, I've got a clean record too. :)

As for Goofy analogy ... erm, art imitates life? Or izzit the other way round. LOL!

oh my..u sound just like my hubby *shakehead*..do u drive as fast as he does too? I thought Singapore's road is generally okay..i mean compared to places like Indonesia or even malaysia..which is horrid..I guess I shouldnt talk so much since I don't drive :P..
As for the analogy..wat do u think *grin*...

ehh the driving part, i can sympathise. i normally drive at least at or above the speed limits, and generally, i'm about as aggressive as the other drivers on the road. methinks its better to be defensive-aggressive than to be kayu and lembu lar...most especially when you have other hesitant and inexperienced drivers on the road (like those who just passed, or who sit really near the wheel!)

i've been told to practice the 20 second rule, and it really works. you just look far enough down the road to sort of predict what's gonna happen in the next 20 seconds so that its early enough to take preventive action if necessary..
Aug. 2nd, 2003 08:21 pm (UTC)
err..he doesnt drive 'at least the speed limit'..he drives way over the speed limit!

I acknowledge that it mus be really stressful while drivin on the road but sometimes, i really marvel at how high-strung he can be while doin so..Seems like everyone is alike ..dun tell me there are no 'good natured' drivers ard?

Great to finally meet you, Angie! :) I recognised you immediately also as well as Clare and Lily but didn't get to talk to them.
Aug. 2nd, 2003 08:18 pm (UTC)
Yeah..I was in a rush coz I was late for class and we were stuck in the car-q at the carpark entrance coz the carpark was full..bleah. Hubby told me to go first or else we would be ultra late by the time he finds parking.. Forum on a Saturday is like a massive playground for kids!

Aly looks as pretty irl..but I just realised somethin..she's like Aidan..in that they usually have that dao and somewhat sulky/pouty look. I seldom see her smiley mug hee~!

Please ask your dh to shake hands with mine. He turns road rage and everyone on the road is an idiot.... haha
Aug. 2nd, 2003 08:14 pm (UTC)
yeah boy..are all hubbys the same?
Does he drive as fast with the kids in the car? Sometimes, while in the back seat of the car, I get so dizzy with the 'g-force' ..and he refuses to have the baby-in-car 'sticker' coz he says it lower his value hehe..
Do u drive like that too ah?

My hubby is a monster when he's behind the wheel. On the road, everyone's at fault except himself. I said he's reckless but he said he's fast and steady ??? Really 'buay tahan'. So, I was actually quite glad when we sold off the car cos we have one thing less to quarrel abt.
Aug. 2nd, 2003 08:47 pm (UTC)
yeah yeah..its the same..hubby always say at least he's very zai..hee, yeah sell off car less chance of gettin heart attack too!
Actually, that's what I told hubby yesterday..said I'm okay if we have no cars so I won't need to be that bothered abt his driving..:P
