Love & Lust

When asked, I suspect most people would describe being love as feeling strong attracted to someone else, as considering another person to be overwhelmingly desirable. When people are in love, we imagined they're constantly preoccupied with thoughts of their beloved, and that they want nothing more than to be with that person.

Actually, however, these feelings don't describe love at all. They describe lust- an initial physical attraction to another. It's overwhelmingly powerful and it's driven by pheromones, although we're not generally aware of that.

When we're madly attracted to someone else, it's because we sense (unconsciously) that they'd make an excellent genetic match, someone who would allow us to produce the strongest and healthiest offspring. Lust is all about survival of our DNA. It's not about long-term compatibility, about "happily ever after"

Love on the other hand, isn't an immediate feeling. It grows over time. Love is more akin to a friendship than coupling. Love is the desire to extend yourself-at whatever personal cost - for the purpose of nurturing the growth and furthering the dreams of another individual.

Love is effortful; it involves personal sacrifice, and it grows slowly. Love is not about "me" - what can I have? It's about "you" - what can I do to make your life richer? When we separate "lust" from "love" in this way, it's distressing to note than one in five people desire someone other than their partner.

They're simply confusing between LUST and LOVE.

The Opposite of Luxury

Some people think that luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not, it is the opposite of vulgarity.

Get Over With It

It will never and won't want to make it, so just get over with it. The only way to get over with it is by replacement. And seal it away with the most powerful spell right down to the bottom of the heart as

Supercars Student

His burnt 458 Italia.
We could spend hours on how jealous we are about this 21-year-old, just god damn 21! or how spoiled he is and how he’ll never know what it’s like to have a tough life. But we just have to respect his pure taste in supercars and the fact that he actually pursued an education rather than sitting back, driving his fine collection of cars and living off his (clearly affluent) businessman father.Student Dhiaa Al-Essa has 30 ultra luxury, fast motors in his garage including five Ferraris (F430, F430 Novitec Rosso, F458 Italia, California, 599 GTB), five Porsches (997 Turbo, 997 GT3 RS, 997 Turbo Spyder, Cayenne Turbo, Panamera Turbo), a Bentley Continental GT, five Mercedes (McLaren SLR, S65 AMG, G55AMG, E63 AMG, CL65 AMG), four BMWs (M5, X6M, X5M, 760Li), two Audis (R8, A8), a Lexus 460 and a Maybach 62 all equates to a total of £4.5 million- a total of nearly RM100million if they were owned in Malaysia. (Why 100mil? Malaysia's high taxes).The supercars you see above are just a handful of exotics owned by just a 21-years old student.

"The Mercedes McLaren SLR is my favourite. I love the way it looks and drives and it's also been reliable for a car out in the 50 degree temperature. With a top speed of 205mph, it's also very fast", says Dhiaa. The international playboy, whose father's business empire spans everything from property stock markets, is currently studying for a degree in engineering in Riyadh, his home city. He is one of many rich youngsters from the Middle East who descend on Europe and America every summer to escape the scorching desert temperatures. His summer tour this year includes jaunts to the upmarkets of London, Montreal, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New York . The playboys have infuriated residents in Knightsbridge by turning the posh area into a multi-million pound race track.

The poshy and undoubtly fast Mercedes SLR McLaren.

Not enough? Of course not! He's reportedly making orders for the Koenigsegg Agera (a Swedish hypercar looking to topple the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport’s 267mph world record top speed), a Ferrari GTO Roadster and a Buggati Veyron. The £1.6 million is a gift from his father for completing his engineering degree and 22nd birthday gift All his cars have a personalised number plate featuring the figures 070, which sets him back around £100,000 every time he buys a new car. His upcoming Agera will feature diamond-laced leather interior with his signature stitched on the seats and a special key made out of gold. CRAZY !! Isn't it?

The Veyron's top speed breaker, Koenigsegg Agera..

Reportedly speaking from his mansion in New York, he said "I love speed, but th limit in Saudi Arabia is 75mph so I'm pretty limited. So, when the Bugatti arrives, I hope to take it to Germany where you can drive as fast as you can on parts of autobahn". This chap must be feeling poor, his Ferrari 458 Italia has recently just burned to cinders during the massive fire in Heathrow Airport's warehouse. The car cost him £300,000 and is decked out with a £50,000 Dolce&Gabbana interior. But, Dhiaa's torment will be short-lived as he is replacing the 458 with the production number 70 of 70 Ferrari 599 GTO Roadster.

A 21 year old having all these? How lucky is that. Envy is a cruel mistress. And we shall not succumb to her petty, poisonous advances.

Olivia Ong
Such beautiful figure and voice she had.

She has the most sensual, soulful, innocent vocals I've ever heard in my life. One of the new wave of Singapore talent being exported internationally and has an incredible talent in singing. Though some of her songs isn't written by her, she's able to turn songs in to exceptionally soothing tune. My favourites were her Sometimes When We Touch, Close To You and I Believe. You should go check it out :)
