Entertaining yourself

When your friends are not free, your family members are all out and no strangers even take a look at you, you know you have come to a day of self-entertainment. It is said that women, generally, are more sociable than men. So it is no surprise that I was faced with many hours of frustration during the days when I had no friend after I initially reached Australia. So here are some tips to entertain yourself:

- Exploring the internet
The wild wild web is an excellent place to find weird information. Google is one of my favourite sites. I just search any word that comes to mind. Gives you endless hours of fun! You link from one site to another and almost invariably end up at some porn site! Beginning to sound fun eh?

- Discovering places
This is learnt from my housemate who went to campus on her first day and took any path she saw without consulting the map. In Singapore, we can also do this! It would be really fun to try it out at the new Marina Square and don’t peek at the directory! Not even when you are dying from hunger and really need to find the foodcourt fast! Alternatively, you can flag down any bus and just see where it goes. As with most exploration expedition, make sure you have enough money to take a cab home when you end up at Ong Lai Rd.

- Finding a stuffed toy, giving it a kickass name and telling it your deep dark secrets like how Butters told Awesom-o his
Meet Lion.

He’s my newest bed buddy (a poor substitute for Ah Pan. Look at his puny size!). Chatting with inanimate objects does wonders for your soul! Just look at Anita Yuen in “He’s a woman, she’s a man”. I just hope if I chat long enough with Lion, I’ll be come as pretty. Muhahahahaha…

- Buying a broccoli flower for yourself
Who cares about receiving roses or lilies? So boring! Take your pick from some broccoli! They are damn big and way more unique than boring bouquets. And relatively cheap too! Only one color? You are dead wrong!
