You know the 10 second lag when you’re having a conversation with your friend who is holding an iPhone?
You ask, so how was the meeting? And your friend will be staring at his phone like a Time Demon just froze him and there will be an awkward 10-second silence during which you briefly consider picking up your own iPhone and stare at it too until your friends replies, “sorry what was it? Oh meeting. It was okay!”
Every fucking time.
I seriously wonder how many people nowadays can sit through a dinner without touching their phones.
Stupid gadgets are like the ultimate convenient excuse to interrupt/end/get through any social situations.
Bad dinner date. Pretend checking emails.
Finish dinner with group of friends. All chatting with other people on Whatsapp.
Eating #foreveralone. Pretend rush out for a quick bite while doing work on phone.
Run out of topic to talk. Read 9gag.
Watch Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan’s live match. Busy tweetting scores.
I know right. I do it too. Sometimes i realized how fucked up it was, so i wanted a break and stop refreshing my Twitter every 5 seconds. But my friends won’t let me. They will start checking their FB every 5 seconds. Then get possessed by Time Demon for like 20 minutes.
What do i do? Stare at them like a sohai ah?
I START REFRESHING MY TWITTER TIMELINE ALSO LA.
(Then don’t believe there’s no new mentions then will force F5 again. Repeats action until friend puts phone down.)
Worst case scenario?
PHONE BATTERY FLAT.
(Can only stare at your friend giggling at their phones while you do nothing like an idiot wtf)
I hate this whole technology thing.
Fuck you, future.
Then i start to wonder what the world would be like without all these glorious social channels to showcase every individual’s alternate life online. I suspect a huge reason of human’s existence nowadays is merely to show off yourself and seek attention from complete random strangers from god knows where. Human’s life would be a depressing, meaningless passing of time if nobody knows how good you look in your new dress, how fun your party last night was, how expensive your fancy dinner was, how drunk your friends made you, how popular you are among all your pretentious friends.
Well at least i would be.
Imagine there’s no Twitter. No Facebook. No blogs. Ok la i’ll be nice and give you emails and a camera.
Dress to kill. Took pictures but nowhere to upload and show how pretty you look.
Discover a fancy restaurant. No where to check in and announce presence.
Party with 10 friends. No one to tag.
Make a half-ass marginally edible cake. Cannot tweetpic.
WHAT IS THE MEANING OF LIFE ?
Internet down? Worst day ever. BIG FUCKING DEAL.
Try living the life a decade ago.
I cannot remember how i lived the first 15 years of my life, where meeting someone literally means making an appointment to physically meet someone at a mutually agreed location at a mutually agreed time and turn up at said location on said time and looking out for said person you’re suppsed to meet.
If you wait for 15 minutes and the person doesn’t turn up, you are fucked.
1. You will have to find the nearest public phone to call the person’s home to find out if the person is out and if the family member knows where the person is, but at the same time risking missing the person turning up at agreed meeting point, resulting in the person thinking you are gone after waiting for too long. It’s like fateless path-crossing movie cliches.
2. Continue waiting in panic, wondering about all kinds of possibility that might have happened to cause the person not turning up on time.
Now we whatsapp Honey please pass me the salt.
I hate you, technology, but not as much as i desperately need you.
Also, a proper blog post will only look proper without pictures so that it will look as if it’s an intelligence-oriented piece written with well organized thoughts and opinions that will likely resonate among like-minded people who will then produce seemingly witty and lengthy two cents’ worth in response to your seemingly intelligence-oriented piece written with well organized thoughts and opinions.
But i am also an attention whore so i cannot resist it.
Also because nobody reads my blog post when there’s no pictures in it.
So here’s a few pictures of me supposedly having very much fun partying drinking dancing getting high whatever living the life NOW LOOK AT ME AND GIVE ME SOME ATTENTION.
Oh look, a picture!
Oh look, another one!
Oh look i have a life outside my house.
Oh look i actually have friends!!
Oh look i hang out with cool people at cool parties!
If you prefer less words and more pictures, welcome to my Facebook Page.
*resumes bimbo mode
Is that TK in one of your photos?! 😯
i thought i saw TK on the pic too… is he? 🙄
TK!! We gotta know how he’s doing!!
😯 Hi cheesy…this is the first time i really read your blog.You give me a shock.seriously,last time i just browse through you blog and have a look on your pics because u are pretty and japanese style.haha…i was shock when i really go thu your today’s post word bu word.Is diff than what i tot.Diff impression^^keep it up.i love your style that are straightforward.will visit you more often
I AM NOT ALONE IN MY 9GAG ADDICTION THANK GOODNESS. 😯
Not forever alone.
true. i’m sick of those people who couldn’t stop typing on the phone when you are having a meal with them. i also hate those who spend the entire time in the car (WITH YOU SITTING on their sides) yapping away with a bluetooth cock fucking their ears, completely ignoring your existence.
I also hate those who wouldn’t stop telling everyone on twitter how much fun they are having or how much alcohol they are consuming at the club *NOW*.
Really? do we need to share it all? do we need to share every fucking minute of our lives? why don’t everyone start tweeting “Now, my bf is taking off his clothes” “Now, I’m taking off my clothes. He’s struggling with my bra! oh gosh!” “Now i’m very close to coming” “I just got my orgasm! yay!”
yeah, why don’t everyone do that? I think everyone would love to read that.
no hope. no hope for the future at all. at this rate everyone will become more narcissistic, egomania and just plain ol’- stupid.
i actually like to read more than see pics. 😉
honestly, i just skip the pics unless i see something that interests me. LOL
Yes! I cannot agree enough with you. There’s been so many times where I’ve met a friend I’ve not seen for a long time and all they can do is fiddle with their phone. And the 10-second delay thing is ridiculous. Can’t they answer WHILE typing? Or reply THEN continue typing at LEAST? I do update twitter and facebook on my phone too, but not when there’s company cause I think that is plain rude. Especially when they’re trying to hold an actual conversation with you. :@ Mobile social networking is a good thing, unless it comes between you and REAL socialising. -.- Ridiculous.
Ur blog is 0ne of my addiction !!! Love ya <3
couldn’t agree more with u. social networking on mobile is making people anti-social instead 🙁
i think i have no life since my friends is busy by their own life and when ever i tried to call them out and everything they avoid me… #foreveralone
i might end up nobody knows i rotten in my room if i’m gonna die today. 😥
Ugh I completely agree. Technology is making us all #sociallyawkward
Lols i miss this side of you ^^ yeah, i don’t wanna be too dependant. Sure I have an addiction but its not a problem because I can pause ans look at the sky with my real eyes and not through a filtered lens. I think you need a respite. A tranquil holiday with nothing eventful…if you feel forever alone well I think i need one too ^^
P/S m a reader^^ and I still have my lil miniature kawaii phonebook with all my friends house phone number. In fact I still remember some by heart till now! <3 better memories then #pun
love this post~!!! 😈
oh well, u’r getting enuf attention edi.. nonit 2 ask 4 it..
*p/s: did any1 tell u that there’s a split second of ur appearance on an Astro ad, neh, that mv with Danny One?
On a side note: http://www.thedoghousediaries.com/?p=2999
Disconnect to connect, no phones allowed at dinner.
nawh, if this didnt have pictures then it would have been ~proper and mature~ hahahha. good post 🙂
Oh you’re so right my husband is like that, ok it’s for work, but wtf at least try to turn off the iphone when we’re eating togheter. Sometimes I miss the old times when u had to call your friend with a regular phone or ring at their door… but that’s the progress oh wait i have to refresh my twitter timelist nOW sorry I gotta go ;P
Nice post girl!
I read the whole thing, now what did I win?
When my BF first got his iphone we were always arguing because he was constantly on it. Once I was talking to him and I was not finished talking but I see him just going to grab his iphone. Almost broke up because of stupid iphone. O_O
This advert almost made me cry also. Made from Thai phone company I think.
Telling people to disconnect once in a while. *tears*
omg spot on about the 10 min lag!! Damn annoying and you’re right, the person not staring at the iPhone will look like a sohai. What’s worse is I don’t have an iPhone and I’m not the kind of person who puts their mobiles on the dinner table, so what do I do? Start drinking my drink like its the yummiest drink on earth la!
10sec lag u mean … If 10min lag .”. I think u shuld get new frens oredi . :dunno:
😯 Eh y not Malaysian flag wan ? Lol ! 😆 I is happy
LOL haha yes, typo sowee
Omg, 😈 SO TRUEEEE!
People are constantly hogging their iPhones and Android phones even when they are out with friends. I admit I do that too, but only when I’m too bored or when I have nothing to say. OR when my friends are doing the same thing too. Techonology nowadays, don’t even know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. 😳
We ban all PCs, Smartphones, and Tablets at the dinner table and in the bedroom!
my!!!!! real Alphabets!!!!!
i’m smurfed!!!!! (showing a also have a life? use the latest terms) while i sit here looking at other ppl having a life through this window? faint!!!!
ahhhh love love love love the pics the most!!!!!!
looking super duper extremely hot!!!!
Yes, technology has made people so addicted to their phones! Before smartphones came out, only can use computer to fb & twitter. Now we can update what we are doing & where we are at anytime & anywhere.
It’s good cos everyone can stay connected but no good cos even when with friends, still seeing phone & keep seeing the bright screen may harm the eyesight?!
cheesieeee!!! sou omou desu!!! i totally agree with you! ahahaha but why did the entry end so abruptly? i was agreeing to every sentence then suddenly bam! no more. lol. i also remember those times where we had to call a friend’s house to find out where said friend was..hahaha and if noone picks up the phone, its like dengdengdeng continue waiting for another hour or so. damn sad cannot even go toilet.haha. but i liked it a lot better then because no friends would be late without the convenience of just texting to say tt they will be late!
Yeah man! I remember this antisocial craze started with the iPhone, not so much during the Symbian days.
There is a way for it to coexist – I have a friend, when we meet and talk about stuff, we Google it (coincidentally on a Galaxy Tab) to reinforce or rebutt the statements. Wikipedia leads the conversation somewhere else! I quite like these… Google-assisted conversations. It also helps for people you haven’t met for so long (primary school mates?) that you might as well have fresh new topics. In essence, a first date with a dose of “hey I knew you before from a past life right?”
Just don’t let it deride to cooperatively bitching about someone and stalking their Facebook. It does happen. 😀
That was a good post R
I keep my crackberry turned off most of the time
I can no longer be f***ing arsed plus it is incredibly rude to email/text when with others
I always tell people to turn the thing off or Im leaving
BTW you seem to know a lot of very ugly men (;
What I don’t understand is, if I am so graciously turning my phone on vibrate, turning off the music and telling the person I’m texting “wait, I’m talking to someone”, people think that’s their cue to resume fb’ing, posting pictures etc etc.
NO. THAT’S NOT COOL.
And then I just sorta get annoyed and put earphones in (that have no music playing) and pretend like I can’t hear them.
Okay. That’s all. I like wordy posts with pictures ^^
But if people weren’t so addicted to technology, social media wouldn’t be such a massive force, and bloggers wouldn’t be so popular?
haihh.. I think with the latest technology my friends are becoming lazier to tell me in person.. but stalking friends in fb, twitter, blog..
Three cheers for you speaking out over rude mobile phone manners.
My wife and I will not answer phones when we are out for an evening.
For new couples dating, spending time talking to other friends when one is into a new relationship IMHO is very disrespectful. Who is the date interested in, the new partner or old friends. Spend some time talking with the person you are with. Face to face and one on one is so much more fun and useful than endless, and often inane chatter on social media.
Nor should you answer a phone when out on a date unless its an emergency
Remember that Paris Hilton video?
She is is giving a BJ and answers her phone
Obviously a deeply moving moment for both of them
What a great post ! 😈
anyway , i know i’ll look stupid to ask this but .. i still dying to know :dunno:

best blog post ever.
I get very insecure if I don’t have my phone with me. I always get told off for playing with my phone too much when I am with friends though.. Trying not to do it so much these days.
…heheheh.. I just ~knew~ you had it in you to talk/feel/think like this! 🙂 it’s another one of your more insightful observational life experience type posts… and I love it.
When the Zombie apocalypse comes, I want to be with you or at best a reliable friend. 🙂
I think that society has gone so far that it can´t live without this. One reason is what you mentioned- that everyone is a bit of an attention whore and a stalker( you always want to read about someone who has ab awesome life). Plus we´ve got used to this comfortable way of living.
Ten years ago no one needed this because it simply didn´t exist- you can´t miss what you don´t know, but when you gain the opportunity to use a new convenient thing you can´t imagine your life without it.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA loved your humor in this post! 😈
nice post :DDDD 😈 😉
I like your mouth

Jeesh you are a potty mouth
You need to live in europe and meet men who dont look like monkeys

Agreed. Nothing else to say, you said it all! Hate the technology as much as i need it. =/
Well, couldn’t agree more with you!! You hit it on the spot so perfectly! But we are too deeply poisoned with all these technology and online things which is hard to cure! T.T
OMG THUMBS UP! 😈 😈 😈
This is so damn true. It’s so annoying to see your friends hogging onto their phones ALL THE TIME. It’s sad to see what humans have become.
idk why but I LOVED THIS POST!!! 😈 x 1000000000
