I saw a woman yawn outside the bus as I looked out. I thought to myself, "hmm, she must be really tired" and caught myself yawning the next second as well. I didn't realise yawning was THIS contagious. isn't it really quite amazing how our behaviour is so easily influenced by our environment?

reading Life of Pi by Yann Martel..

at first was wondering why the picture on the cover and the blurb was bout this shipwrecked boy and a tiger.. cos the story was this guy telling his life story at first in a really light hearted tone, bout his views on religion and his childhood.. only when i read until him losing his whole family when the ship they were emigrating on sank, and he was stuck on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger from his dad's zoo then i realised what the book was really about. its bout his survival on his own with the tiger in the same boat for 227 days. still reading it, kinda gruesome when he describes his survival killing tactics.

i can't do nothing on bus/MRT journeys. i think that's how i end up looking like an owl with thick specs. dunno read how many books and magazines on buses and trains le. and it doesn't help tht i read at 1500 wpm; i need at least a thick book or 2 magazines else i'll go crazy with boredom. think thats y i can't sleep well at nite cos my mind is so super active all the time. if i had a dreamless nite, i would actually wake up feeling that something's amiss. i'm abnormal..
