Someone told me the story of Rain, “He was entering contest or something and the judge told him, “You are very ugly. Go for surgery first, then come back and try.” But now he’s so hot.”
“Did he go for the surgery?” I asked my friend. I guessed not. I mean, Rain’s cute – if you like tiny, slit eyes and flat nose.
“No lah! I wonder how the judge feel now? Rain is so rich, famous and successful now. He worked very hard.”
“Do you know why he always poses with shades?”
“Coz his eyes are sepet ma.”
A lot of people (and media) had been claiming Rain’s the most famous Asian artist now. Hype? I don’t know. I didn’t watch Full House. A Love to Kill (showing right now on tv) is dead boring but maybe it was because I didn’t catch the 1st few episodes. I had downloaded some of his albums but only liked Sad Tango.

He has a great body though. And not shy shy in showing off his abs.

Suddenly, another friend asked if I wanted to go to his concert. Got free ticket.
But it was friends’ belated birthday party, so I didn’t go.
“Why didn’t you go to the concert first, then come here?” Another friend was shocked I didn’t take the free ticket.
“Nevermind la, I’m not his fan anyway.”
Rain looks like Ralph, 1 of my ex-colleague in the apparel company. I know Rain did nothing to me but somehow everytime I look at Rain, I think of Ralph.
What’s this called in psychology?
It’s like someone who look alike another person and how much you like/dislike this someone is actually a carry-forward feeling on how you perceive the ‘another’ person. Much like Britney dating a Kevin F look-alike now.

Or the song by Usher:
Usher – You Remind Me
You remind me of a girl, that I once knew.
See her face whenever I, I look at you.
You won’t believe all of the things she put me through.
This is why I just can’t get with you.
