All That He Doesn’t Do.


It’s easy to judge a man by the things that he does.


Does he buy you flowers and remember important dates?

Is he punctual, does he value your time or does he keep you waiting?

Does he pull out, chairs or otherwise?

Is he addicted to your laughter and deeply regrets your tears?


It’s easy to judge a man by what he does, but we should never forget about the things that he doesn’t do.


For politely turning down that overenthusiastic colleague for the hundredth time.

For not replying that drunk text from your ex at two in the morning.

For all the times that you said No when you could have said Yes.


Being faithful isn’t about being in the absence of temptation.

It is acknowledging that the good Lord has blessed some girls with tits that won’t quit, or legs much longer than mine would ever be and still choosing to come home to me.

It’s knowing that there are people out there who are funnier, wittier, smarter and better at sports or tracing but also knowing that life isn’t about finding the elusive best or the proverbial soul mate but rather, it’s making the best out of what you have.


Being faithful, very much like being in love; is a verb, not a noun.

It’s the conscious effort in choosing the same person everyday.



I want to thank you for all the things that you have done for me, and also for all that you didn’t do.

Thank you for choosing me everyday.

    Munyee, you are incredibly gifted. I write too -well I try to- but I’m nowhere as good as you. Please don’t ever stop writing.

      You are too kind. Thank you for your words.

      And I hope that you keep doing what you do, there are no good or bad writers, only those who stop trying.

      Good luck :)

    Hi Mun Yee! Came across your LinkedIn profile and this blog while I was LinkedIn-ing. Actually I have a question. I would like to be a freelance writer, one of my dreams, but I don’t know where or how to start. Hope you can share some advice and experiences to me *pretty please* !!
