How not to lose a friend


  • Dun bicker with him over $1. The price of friendship is worth much more, you idiot! Juz pay up, eat the chai tow kway, and be thankful for the ultra-cheap food. Because there'll be no "next time".

  • Dun itchy backside and put up a post on "Reasons why I dun wanna fren u oredi". You make people around you suspicious and wondering if you're talking about them. If you had done it, take it down. If you have not, dun start.

  • Dragons and monkeys are extremely vain creatures. NEVER EVER mess with their faces Avatar, dammit, especially so when you lack the balls to put up an Avatar of your own. And stop boasting that you have balls the size of coconut, becos you obviously do not.

  • You win some; you lose some. Let him win sometimes, but stand firm 95% of the time.

  • Dun ever accuse him of skiving. High achievers in the office DO NOT SKIVE, okay? They are smart, and they work smart, too.

  • If you dun appreciate his jokes, be frank about it and tell him to his face. Dun nudge him or leave comments in his blog suggesting that you're unhappy. How is he to know that you're goofing off or being serious?

  • Lastly, recognise that we are all built differently - some with dimples and others with pimples. 人有长短,也有大小。Mutual respect and honesty are keys to a friendship that will stand the test of time.

I was wondering what happened to that post,‘I dun want to fren you'. Oh, somebody forced you to take it down. Wow! Someone who is much more influential than me? hehe....

Nobody can hold any influence over me. This is my blog, I blog what I want. But in the process, if my frens feel that my writing has not been fair and they feel hurt, I take the post down. It's called social responsibility. I juz wish all other bloggers are responsible enough to do the same.

Can't say that I agree 100% with what you've stated here. At the most, I agree only with 73% of it, hence you still pass Band II lah. Not so bad. So do you think you will take down this post as well? Jisuz.

The "I dun wanna fren u oredi" post was more generic and I am sure there were several targets in it. Hmm... I don't know about this one though.

By taking down that post, you removed my funny comments as well. Tsk, tsk, tsk. What a total waste of my effort.

>stop boasting that you have balls the size of coconut

There you go again digging up old jokes that have long past their expiry dates. "The coconut milk has already turned sour. However, the size of the coconuts remain the same."

Please, how many times do I have to say this - bloggers have a right to put up their photos or remain faceless. Putting up your photo doesn't mean you have more guts.
