    There, Mr. Cheng
    Ugh...I'd better personally do this.

    I feel lovely whenever the thought of going back to Home Sweet Home comes into my mind. On the other hand, I feel dreadful and uneasy whenever I think about going to my aunty's house. Due to her dodgy habits, I feel restricted.

    That's as much as I could fix it without completely re-engineering the sentence.

    My idea was to exclude myself at the beginning and more emphasis that kind of feeling due to such event.

    How would you do re-engineer it? Please feel free to do so, if you would to let me see the differences.


    Thanks, Mr Cheng

    Well, first, we need to do this one:
    My idea was to exclude myself at the beginning and more emphasis that kind of feeling due to such event.
    This one should read, "At the beginning, my idea was to direct the focus away from me and place greater emphasis on the feelings that I experience during such visits."

    Logically, of course, "you" and "your feelings" are not of great difference. It might be a case of splitting hairs.

    Here's a complete re-engineering that preserves the essential message, but not the wording:

    "The idea of returning home is intensely appealing. Conversely, the idea of visiting my aunt's house fills me with dread and anxiety because her dodgy habits cause me to feel restricted."

    I suppose that's why we Americans think of the French as snobby and aloof.

    Both hotels are located near the same train stations, but you would need the help of someone who is familiar with the ground to confirm which more convenient. I don't use the train much and I seldom go to the KL city centre, but you can try asking Ian Liew. He might be more familiar.

    Thanks, Huang Yushi. Trip to KL possibly cancelled. Thanks once again.

    Metropolis, a 1927 German Expressionism film and it was torturous to watch. That's two hours of my life I'll never get back. : /

    Did Nik Tesla really said this or it's made up by New Ager

    "My brain is just a receiver. In outer space there is some kernel, from which we get knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the mysteries of this kernel, but I know that it exists" ~ Nikola Tesla

    Do you guys know of an English language music site that plays Asian music online? I know of last.fm but that's more like a Pandora. I want something more like playlist.com where I can make my own playlist rather than having the site play similar style of song or artist. This may not make sense so sorry in advance for any confusion.

    That's how I felt about M (another film by Fritz Lang). Zzzzzz

    On the other hand, I thought Metropolis was impressively made for its time.

    Trying to work out a flowchart to approach current problem pertaining to job.... to decide whether is it worth to stay on. In a nutshell, Boss is a major ***** and very difficult to approach her to talk things out. And a badmouther.
