It never occurred to me how big the big shots in my university are. It's only at times when I see how other people treat them do I realise that 'This bloke's famous!'

If newspaper article titles sound too good to be true, then it's usually because they are. I yearn for the day where newspapers report that 'Sammy Vellu to (finally!) do away with tolls', but then in the most obscure part of the two page-long article, it will say '...when he's retired from politics'. It's not going to happen I tell you. In the case of the newly-vorced (as opposed to newly-weds), turns out that what it meant was that the two could possibly appear together in the serial drama Gerak Khas - which is an awfully different thing altogether, isn't it?
What got me to thinking wasn't exactly whether or not the once-Malaysia's-heartthrob-now-turned-baldie would play Cops and Robbers with his ex-wife on the small screen, but rather what would happen between the two when they meet on the set.
Now I know enough about divorces to know that seldom do the couple get along well - sincerely, if I may add - with each other after getting separated. Of course in public, the two will talk courteously and smile politely, but try taking away the public eye and you'll end up with two children who'll squabble about the most trivial things. (Come to think of it, even married couples behave like children who'll squabble about the most trivial things, but that's a different story)
And it doesn't even necessarily have to be people who used to be married and lived together under the same roof. Even for 'puppy love' types, there are those who magically assume the persona of Anne Robinson after breaking up. Funnily enough, they are exactly the same people who you once thought to be extremely demure, pleasant and charming.
Ahh...when love turns sour.
