I spy with my little eye

I arrived back in Singapore on Sunday night after a 6-hour journey. It was an hour longer than usual as there highway authorities closed 2 out of the three lanes available, thus creating a massive jam right after the Seremban exit.

In the MRT, I caught sight of two guys standing about 15 feet away. One was caressing the other’s hair. He was doing it for quite some time, about two minutes.

Suddenly he stopped and he cusped the other person’s face.

Awww, how sweet. And was that a ring I saw on each of their right hands?

The MRT was not that empty, there were about a dozen or so other people in the car.

A while later, the same guy was back to stroking the other’s hair. I could only see the back of the person doing the stroking, whereas I have a sideways view of the strokee.

All the while that I was snooping watching, oftentimes their faces were so close to each other that I thought they were kissing!

The whole time it happened'

- No one was giving them strange looks or dagger stares.

- No one shouted profanities at them, like "You deserve to go to hell, faggots!"

- No one screamed while digging their eye balls out.

- No marriage was broken as a result of affection between two people of the same sex, who are unrelated to married couples.

- The train didn’t blow up because of short circuit caused by lightning.

Now, if only CF will lose a bit of his inhibitions about PDA without getting intoxicated …..

Very sweet! I guess Singaporeans are either more cosmopolitan than Malaysians, or simply too self-obsessed to care about anyone else.

Back when NM and I started dating, we used to hold hands all the time. Apart from one incident (when a bunch of teenage boys were a bit... rude) we were generally ignored.

After two and a half years we don't bother holding hands anymore, so it's not really an issue!

defiant85: Who wouldn't? Who wouldn't?


prince of darkness: Actually, I think we can hold hands anywhere. Just whether we would risk that or not. Holding hands is not illegal, anal sex is. ;P


kyle: Yeah ....


jay: No holding hands anymore after 2.5 years? How ... straight LOL


mrbunnyban: I'm sure it's only temporary. ;P


famezgay: Hang in there, man.

You can see that too once a while here in the LRT but of course with the rest of the passengers giving strange looks. Takes lots of courage to ignore them though.

It's so cool that you caught that. I wish I saw it more often, it makes the day better. One time, I was walking with Jesse in Marina Square, and I said to him:"You know what would make this moment perfect? If you took my hand and walked down the hall with me." He did, and it was one of the happiest moments in my life.

No one was giving them strange looks? What about YOU?! Hehe.

So romantic-lah. They were obviously very much in love. I wish people would see that, though. Not at their gender but at how it is LOVE that brought them together. *sigh*
