IF A MAN WANTS YOU
If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away.
If he doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay.
Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior.
Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.
Stop trying to change yourselves for a relationship that's not meant to be.
Slower is better.
Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy.
If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve, then heck no, you can't "be friends." A friend wouldn't mistreat a friend.
Don't settle. If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is.
Don't stay because you think "it will get better." You'll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better.
The only person you can control in a relationship is you.
Avoid men who've got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women. He didn't marry them when he got them pregnant, why would he treat you any differently?
Always have your own set of friends separate from his.
Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you.
If something bothers you, speak up.
Never let a man know everything. He will use it against you later.
You cannot change a man's behavior. Change comes from within.
Don't EVER make him feel he is more important than you are...even if he has more education or in a better job. Do not make him into aquasi-god.
He is a man, nothing more nothing less.
Never let a man define who you are.
Never borrow someone else's man.
Oh Lord! If he cheated with you, he'll cheat on you.
A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you.
All men are NOT dogs.
You should not be the one doing all the bending...compromise is a two-way street.
You need time to heal between relationships...there is nothing cute about baggage... deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship.
You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you...a relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals...look for someone complimentary...not supplementary.
Dating is fun...even if he doesn't turn out to be Mr. Right.
Make him miss you sometimes...when a man always know where you are,and your always readily available to him- he takes it for granted.
Don't fully commit to a man who doesn't give you everything that you need.
Keep him in your radar but get to know others.
Share this with other ladies..... You'll make someone SMILE, another RETHINK her choices, and another woman PREPARE.
They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them and an entire lifetime to forget them.

Everytime I watched S&C, I learnt new words / phrases / terms. :) I still remember this jing1 dian3 one "absofuckinglutely". Ha!
Some quotes of the 6th season S&C (till episode #12 only).
...which proves my theory that the only thing a girl needs to get a date is...ANOTHER DATE! (Carrie got another guy asking for a date at the same time when she has just started the first date with Berger).
The sooner the better, may be the later the better, or better yet, the never the better! (Carrie wished not to talk about THEIR ex-thingy so soon in the beginning of their relationship)
He has a past, I have a past, do our past need to have a present?! (this was when Carrie finally got to discuss the ex-thingy with Berger)
"There's a type of date that you can't wait to keep, and a type of date you both know you will never keep!" Carrie met his ex, Aidan. Aidan said" we should get a coffee sometime for catch up!"
Alright I'm not going to sugar-coat it for you, but he's just not that into you. (Berger enlightened Miranda on her date!)
Carrie was angry at herself for picking on things with Berger that ended up spoilt the whole thing. Miranda said,"All of us pick on it! It's in our DNA. It's our way of showing we care!"
The best statement in episode 9 ("The post it always sticks twice")
Carrie said," Berger broke up with me on a post it!" It was written as "I'm sorry. I can't. Don't hate me." Samantha and Miranda said they had too with sort of similar experience aka breakup through a phone call, or by one's doorman.
Later on Carrie met Berger's friends in a pub and started talking about her breakup with Berger that ended with a post-it.
One of the guys said," All we're saying is there's no good way to breakup with someone."
Carrie couldn't help but provoked," Well, you can have guts and courtesy to tell a woman through her face that you no longer want to see her. Call me crazy or what, but I think that you can make a point of ending an relationshop in a manner that doesn't include an email, a doorman, or a missing person! I think you could all get over the fear of looking like a bad guy and actually have the uncomfortable breakup conversation because....avoiding that is what makes it a bad guy! and here's what you should know, Allen...ah ha, Andrew..most women aren't angry irrational psychos, we just want ending to our relationship that is thoughtful, decent and honours what we had together. Now, my point, Billy, is this, there's a good way to breakup with someone and it doesn't include a POST-IT!"p/s: I believe only those who have had such kind of experience appreciated this scene!

We got to wake up early in order to catch a high speed train (搭乘高铁)back to Taipei.
At the station. I was still half-lembik.....no energy to walk around lah. The tour members were all very juak sim, soooooo kam tong. :)
At 忠烈祠 ....neh, the one famous for its soldiers standing like robot. :)
See or not? still 'pua peh' look.... Not yet got the chance to buy extra shoes lah due to Feng Jia 2nd visit was screwed up, so I was actually from day 3 onwards wearing slipper nia. :)
The stamp collection I bought from 故宫博物馆. The group pic we took by a pro photographer at Zhong Zheng Ji Nian Tang.
At Taoyuan (桃园) 住都hotel.
My sao wok of the day.... at 士林夜市 (ShiLin night market) . Finally managed to get the shoes during the very last night. :)
Day 7 (Taiwan -> Penang) at TaoYuan airport.

美浓客家村 (Meinong Hakka Village) . This one was sooooo damn commercialized leh, yeeeeee.......
Proceeded to KaoShiung (高雄).
This night was a free & easy night. The tour guide told us some places of interest and we were by our own to explore.
We went to Xin Jue Jiang night market (新崛江夜市) for shopping, then walked a rather long and 冤枉 journey to explore another makan night market at the 六合路(?!), then proceeded to Love River ( 爱河) for a boat ride. It was about ~RM5 for a ~20min ride.
My 'sao wok' of the day. Frankly speaking, XinJueJiang night market was just so-so, undeniably couldn't fight with FengJia at all!
Day 5 (tainan)
Tainan Anping Street (台南安平老街)...that's where the origin of lao sai started. You can go here Taiwan Food Part III to find out more.
We reached the farm and I drank another glass of fresh milk + milk pudding.....
This was the pre-lao sai pic...did not see any symptom yet...:)
That's where my lao sai began .... at this restaurant at Taichung which I've heard of its story long enough before coming to taiwan. It ended up I ran at least 5x toilets. Lembik ever since.....
This was the night that we were back to FengJia night market again (per the whole tour group's request), but I was so sick that I had to take a cab back to hotel early with some other kaki. I lao sai (at least 3x) + vomitted (2x) at FengJia. This of course meant that I spent none loh, definitely not my wish....:(
Hotel - same as Day 2.
JianFuShan (剑湖山世界主题乐园) .......
See this? OH YAH....this was the first one I sat! The most chi kek one! nearly 90- degree fall! Heart-drop fall!
