I'm wearing a sweater as it's quite cold where I am.
Tucked in this comfortable single sofa at a corner of this room, I feel quite relaxed.
Just had a steak dinner in the adjoining room. Very nice.
Got myself a mug of hot chocolate on the coffee table next to me now.
There are others in this room. All strangers - a Chinese couple with their two kids; a young Caucasian guy whom I believe is an American; three Chinese friends, two of whom I believe are actually lovers and a group of seven Chinese and Indian guys and girls, probably some college students from rich families.
Okay, I am actually in the coffee house of this small hotel where I am staying.
Everyone were having their drinks. It's all very cosy.
The Caucasian guy is sitting in the other single sofa reading a book while having a beer. He is probably waiting for his partner whom I noticed was with him when I checked in earlier.
The Chinese couple were having some hot drinks and pastries with their kids.
The three friends were having some sorts of martini or something. The two guys were talking while the girl who was sitting next to one of them seems contented to listen to them. I noticed from where I'm sitting that she got one of her legs pressed against the guy's leg next to her. The guy doesn't seems to mind that. Lucky guy.
The college kids were having beer and a bottle of Jack Daniel. They were talking animatedly about something in English. I don't think the two Indians among them were Hindus as they wouldn't be here if they are as today is Deepavali. If they are Hindus they should be with their family, I think.
Whenever I'm alone like this, I enjoy making such observations.
I'm always interested in understanding people and their motivations.
I among others always wonder what motivates people like DS Anwar Ibrahim.
I mean the guy is already 66 or 67 years old.
How much more time does he has? Did he ever thinks of that?
Is wanting to be prime minister such a powerful motivation?
Honestly, sometimes I feel that it's all so silly.
Life is too short to be spent on such things, I think.
I don't think I want to continue jumping around like him when I am already at that age.
Let other younger people have their chance la.
But then again, I'm just a simple person.
As far as I can remember, I have never been motivated by power or money.
I'm not claiming myself to be noble, just that I was not really interested in those things.
I sought money actually just for my sustenance and nothing else. Well, except maybe when I need to make someone I love or care about happy.
As for power, I don't think I ever really have it. If there is any little bit, it's more for me to protect myself and my love ones. I'm basically harmless except when people disturb me or my love ones.
Okay, maybe I'm more motivated whenever I have the ability to do some good.
Not that I am saying I'm a good person, but being able to do good for others did make me feel satisfied.
Yup, I'm a bit of the Spiderman type.
Nonetheless, as at this moment, I rather stay still and enjoy this peaceful moment.
I am going up to my room in a short while. Feel like sleeping early. It's the cold weather, I guess.
By the way, the Caucasian guy's partner just arrived. Very pretty lady.
