The Young Upstarts

13th October 2005, Thursday

Caught episode 6 of "Densha Otoko" last evening and what a roller coaster ride it as for our resident otaku-hero, Tsuyoshi as his relationship with his beloved "Hermes" (Saori) was about to enter another stage when Saori admited finding him attractive and even offered to walk hand-in-hand with him which is a clear indication of her affection towards our male lead as this brought much joy within the BBS community yet they felt sad that "Densha" might leave them once he managed to woo his "Hermes"...

However on the eve of his confession of his feelings for Saori, he went to a quiessential comic festival with his usual otaku kahkis only to be spotted by Saori who was sunk into extreme disappointment about the fact that Tusyoshi had lied to her repeatedly as her previous flame had done so as well, hurting her badly emotionally....

Well as typical Japanese dorama, the 1st few episodes had the viewers been shown the struggle of a budding relationship and when all seems well (usually between episode 6 or 7), some factors would be introduced to wreck the entire, only to put our hero/heroine into a difficult situation to recoup back what he/she had lost at the same time building up into the climax...

Anyway episode 7 is now sitting nicely in my hard disk, and I was compelled to watch it immediately....

By today we had that pair of polytechnic attachment students with us for a week & a half...
They had been attached to the girls with the project, and despite at times they proved to be a liability instead of an asset; their presence sure spice up our working environment a little...

Alisha - The 2nd year Singapore Poly student as quoted by my supervisor been "very matured for her age". Indeed at the tender age of 19, she has already envisioned a long road of research for herself. A health conscious girl, she chooses her meals meticulously. She is very serious with her work as well, despite only attaching with us for 4 weeks only, she had been religiously jotting down whatever she had learnt and interested in every single equipment and procedure we had within our lab.

Lance - The final year Ngee Ann Poly student doing her 3 months final year project/ attachment is your typical slacker, always adopting that "take-it-easy" mentality. His interest in console games and anime made it very accessible to just chat with him. He also enjoys what typical street-smart guys of his age would do like pubbing and very advanced and developed in his thinking as well.

With this pair around, for us who either in out mid or late 20s, we would be exposed to what young people are thinking about nowadays and despite not been too excellent in their studies, they had everything well thought of for their futures and pretty matured when handling situations...

Of course, we can always chat up anything under the sun such as horrific sexual fetishes, voyuerism or criticising famous people and people working in our company as we usually do so anyway...and now we even thought of a new nickname for JxMMy...known as the "Helmet" (or Lego-style hair) as his hairdo had been for the last quarter of the century (with an old class photograph BY had would verified so)...

Well the fun would actually be lasting if tomorrow isn't BY's final day in our company....
Japanese word of the day: 若い~wa-ka-i~ (Young) The younger generations are not as horrendous as we thought they would be
