Guess what: Today is Engineer’s Day in Singapore. Yes, there is such a thing, and it’s a worldwide thing, except in Indonesia.
I cared because my older brother is one, my boyfriend is one, my best friend is one, and I find myself attracted to the engineering type the whole time I was consciously single. While I’ve welcomed other types and learned to tolerate many things, I still come back to the ones in engineering. You know – the ones who stays in the lab till 6 in the morning, doesn’t shower, and heads off to a morning class immediately.
Besides how obviously intelligent they are, I didn’t really understand why I’m so inclined to these guys until I give myself time to ponder upon it now.
Just woman to woman, here’s why you’re far better off with that bespectacled guy than with Mr. Abercrombie & Fitch:
I don’t know why the media always portrays engineers as unattractive. You see, nerds and geeks are very different (think Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield) – geeks tend to be more socially aware than nerds are. The engineering guys I’ve met are all but hermits – it’s how I met them in the first place. Believe me all you want, but they all happen to be cute. Best of all, they don’t even know it.
Tell me this isn’t just me: Most men think women want humongous muscles and protruding veins. Tell you what – it’s creepy. Women love a good mix of openness and mysteriousness, and a pair of warm eyes hidden beneath those thick, big glasses do just that. It makes us curious, it makes us want to get to know you more, and it makes us wonder what you’re like without them on. It’s like bra for men.
I must admit: I haven’t watched MTV in over a decade. I’m serious. I used to be the kid who keeps up with the charts when I was young1, all the way through the time I was studying in Singapore (circa 1994 to 2004). I felt that music has gone stale since the turn of the millennium, and I’m […]
I don’t consider myself a geeky girl, but my boyfriend is a geek. In fact, I’m more of a nerd, which is way less cooler than a geek. Merriam-Webster defines geeks as those who “is very interested in and knows a lot about a particular field or activity”. I think the geeky girl is just that – […]
Note: This is one of those spontaneous posts I mentioned about on my blogging resolutions post. I just got to let the word out now.

This is coming from a non-comic-book-reading fangirl’s standpoint: Spider-Man was and still is my favorite superhero for all that he is (a good boy) and for the things that he’s not (the usual mega-wealthy, sturdy built, god-like superhero archetype).
I want to do this for no other reason than sharing my love of Peter Parker and his story. I hope it can help you see that everything that was thrown at him in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would eventually mold him into the great character that we all know and love.
By now I’m sure most of you already know what’s going to happen. Regardless, you can rest assured there are no spoilers beyond this point.
