A quick glance at my past

When I was 9 months old, trip cost me 4 painful stitches and a vertical scar down my left eyebrow. That is when I learnt that one mistake is enough to scar you for a lifetime.
When I was 1, I suffered an allergic reaction from eating prawn, bad enough that I almost cant breath. That is when I learnt that expensive stuff is not necessary superior.
When I was 3, I attended my first funeral. It was my grandfather on my mother’s side. That was when I learnt how life is fragile and how we should cherish it.
When I was 6, I attended my second funeral. It was my grandmother on my father’s side. That was when I learnt that death is an integral part of life. Delay it, you can, but escape it you can’t.
When I was 12, I went through a time when I attended religious events, both Buddhist and Christian. That was when I decided that religions are more or less the same.
When I was 15, I stopped being scared of tall girls in my class, because I outgrew them. That was when I learnt that guys and girls are really biologically different.
When I was 17, I started my A-levels education in Singapore. That was when I learnt that families doesn’t have to be blood related.
When I was 18, I met a girl with chocolate allergy. That was when I learnt that there are sweeter things in life than chocolate and candies.
When I was 20, I worked in the hospital and seen a 6-digit hospital bill. That was when I learnt that sometimes, money just cant buy you everything.
When I was 21, I discovered that I’m allergic to beer. That was when I learnt that clubs and loud music isn’t for me.
When I was 22, I developed lactose intolerance, hence have to forgo dairy products that I loved so much. That was when I learnt that sometimes, giving up something is a way to make space for new and better things in life.
So, what shapes you?

You're pretty funny. I'm writing a something--can't call it a book or novel because I suck at it--tentatively called "Nine Lives", literally.

This is a funny entry but somewhat eye opener. The way that you see life is just, well, an inspiration. I can't imagine not eating dairy products! That must be pretty awful but you saw it in a positive way. Good for you. And yeah, why are you so allergic with a lot of things? But anyway, enjoy life! God bless! Cheers!

Monster Beats in 2011 does regarding the earphone profession cannot be ordinary one year Monster Headphones , how many years depend upon the first to accumulate the domestic some earphone manufacturer technology tends even more is maturely intense with the traditional international big plant between competition, then actually does have which manufacturers in 2011 year to be able to break through a tight encirclement stands in belongs to under victor's spotlight Monster Beats ?

Let us wait. Large US and Kuwait issued G909, let us see those who is one section shakes these international electricity to compete sufficiently the famous factory product. In the electricity competes in the market G909 by its superelevation performance-to-price ratio, the fine outward appearance design, lets us see the domestically produced brand has broken the foreign brand ridge power failure to compete the earphone market tight encirclement hope Monster Beats Studio .

Perhaps 4000 Yuan prices let the common consumer accept with difficulty, but because Tesla technology's application this section does obeisance Asian power Monster Headphone to be able to let you and thoroughly that wrap Diamond Headphones tedious and expensive table model system, brings simple enjoyment the graceful acoustic fidelity which to T70P, such looked words 4000 also expensive?

"lets music, described this section of cutting edge flagship portable earphone Beats By Dr Dre on the road" with these words again appropriate. The exquisite sounds of people annotation, the correct sound field performance as well as the clear accurate sense of depth, will be a that kind of tin will let you have the startled colorful feeling product, what certainly will be most essential will be you only needs a personal stereo to be able to obtain these to enjoy. Believed that everybody has a not too good impression regarding the domestic manufacturer, that is "lacks the innovative ideology Beats Solo Hd Frequency Response ".
