明天过后

你问我明天过后会如何
世界若毁灭我们又怎么了
我笑了电影情节太唬人
只有单纯的你相信着

你问我明天过后会如何
冰天雪地里我们怎么活着
我笑了笑你太傻又太笨
但自己心中却决定了

我相信抱着 你的手就温暖了
睡着或醒着 我的手为你加温
就算明天崩塌又如何
我们手握着 外面天再冷
全都由我负责

也许我有时太傻太呆又太闷
甜言蜜语不是我的风格
但请相信 真心从来不会少一分
多嘴的人 恋爱从不会认真

这世界再冷 你的心不会冷

Some Entertainment before XMas! Laugh therapy

If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.(Hardly seems worth it.)

If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas isproduced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.(Now that's more like it!)

The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the bodyto squirt blood 30 feet.(O.M.G.!)

A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes.(In my next life, I want to be a pig.)

A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death.(Creepy.)(I'm still not over the pig.)

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories a hour(Don't try this at home, maybe at work)

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.(Honey, I'm home. What the...?!)

The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumpingthe length of a football field.(30 minutes..lucky pig! Can you imagine?)

The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.(What could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?)

Some lions mate over 50 times a day.(I still want to be a pig in my next life...quality over quantity)

Butterflies taste with their feet.(Something I always wanted to know.)

The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue. (Hmmmmmm......)

Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer thanleft-handed people. (If you're ambidextrous, do you split the difference?)

Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump.(Okay, so that would be a good thing)

A cat's urine glows under a black light.(I wonder who was paid to figure that out?)

An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.( I know some people like that.)S

tarfish have no brains(I know some people like that too.)

Polar bears are left-handed.(If they switch, they'll live a lot longer)

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.(What about that pig??)

Shagged

Totally shagged, mentally and physically tired. Last week's been the most hectic week of my working life. With boss not around, it's left with Matthias and me making SSC our 2nd home. Too tired to blog really. See if I'll have the energy to do so soon.

朋友来自何方?

Drove sis to school very early today due to exams. An impeccably dressed lady caught me up at the carpark to ask for directions. On a closer look, she's kinda only in her twenties. Her destination: LT19A. Looking at the way she was dressed, she must be either there for a seminar or the speaker. She confirmed the latter.

Since I was showing her the way, I asked her on the topic she is speaking and it turned out to be National Security. Hm.... She must be at least a middle shot civil servant to be giving such a speech. At that moment I was feeling a little red in the face cos I was not totally looking my best with specs and ruffled hair. This young achiever is from the Prime Minister's Office and possibly someone that I should know. A good thing was that she was in a rush and hence I was spared the embarrasement of having asked how come I aint know her. K This part is my own exaggeration, she may not be a big shot afterall yah. Afterall, mention the name PMO and people start seeing one in another light.

Sprain ankle

In my sleep... How silly is that.
Dun remember engaging in some kung fu fight or stunt actions in my dream leh. In fact, I was crying instead cos I dreamt that my pet was burnt to death and it turned out to be a toy dog. Wah liew....

Medical Fees

Perhaps I'm simply just ignorant thinking that the older folks get very much subsidise for health checkups and regular visits or that my expectation of the fees are super duper low.

Apparently, mom was mentioning how expensive it was for my grandma to be constantly visiting the hospital for following up. All in all, each visit would put her back at least SGD 70 - 100. Given 5 times per month, my grandma would have dutifully surrender at least 400 monthly. If mom had not been accompanying her these days, she wouldnt have known that grandma has been shouldering all these much expenses (which is alot for her). I did not mention the cost of the medications on top of consultation as well. Woo!

How can one be so complacent about our retirement savings and banking on the government subsidy to live life comfortably with that kinda medical expenses and continously increasing quality of life. Man... it's also a wake up call for me to start saving and plan for my retirement.

Virgin Debut

And so I 奉献-ed my voice to radio in the morning's press conference. The conclusion:
  1. Having the mic shoved straight at you can be pretty intimidating
  2. First time jitters are a confirmed
  3. Having to speak technically in mandarin is frightening
  4. I have lotsa postfixed "la"s
  5. Converting some jargons into Mandarin is horrendous
For the last point, the producer and I have to stop the recording just to discuss how certain terms should be translated. With all the above elements, retakes were very much necessary. The frequency of having mental blank out seems unusually higher. For example, just with a single word "application" I stumbled for like 4 takes.

Though all in all, the producer thinks that I'm fine with my language, I still think that I need lotsa brushing up to do.

The more interesting aspect of the entire interview was the post chit chat with the interviewer. He was a 88.3 DJ before and that got me really interested. I wonder if he thinks that I am good enough to try on that aspect. LOL.

The only shush thing is that I FORGOT to ask him when they will be airing it!!!! It would be good to assess how I sound on air right. Then decide if my voice is nice and sweet enough to perhaps carve a new career out of it. hahahaha Yeah Feng, DREAM ON.

Project "Doomed from the Start"

Well... As you see. After getting my eager hands onto those 30 calendars, I set out to kick start my own creative juice (If I even have any to begin with). Without a theme nor idea, I simply took a pencil and started doing patterns. The initial strokes that define the head and mouth was what I thought simple yet nice. As I progressed with more patterns..... everything seemingly started to fall out of place.

Those patterns simply look odd. I think it would be good to start preparing papers to wrap over those marker drawns should they turn out untastefully done... Wah piangz eh...

Animal Lovers League Calendars

Anyone interested?? I can help order on behalf. Have already made an order for 30 of them myself and will be collecting them from John this evening. Can't wait to lay my hands on them and start my own diy. *wink



  1. Its body made with biodegradable material to remind you to be environment conscious.
  2. The material is made with paper carton material to remind all of us how stray kittens and puppies are often staying in such shelters in the streets, braving the harsh conditions as a stray. (Pls see Cathy Strong's msg on the first card inside)
  3. Each individual month of the card has a reverse side of a postcard, so you can still use it as a postcard after the month is over.
  4. The frame of the calendar can be used as a photo frame for your dogs or cats after its eventual lifespan in 2008. You do not throw away old and expired calendars anymore, cos there is use for it after 2007.
  5. The calendar comes in versatile and interchangeable head and tails for you, be it a dog lover or a cat lover. or months when you feel like a cat or a dog.
  6. The calendar is wrapped up nicely and neatly with thick brown paper and an ALL sticker seal, perfect gift for any birthdays for dog/cat lovers, even more meaningful as a Christmas present at end of the year.
  7. The ALL 2007 calendar is selling for a mere 10 bucks only.
  8. The calendar is fun, has an element of surprise and encourages creativity. You self-construct your own calendar upon unwrapping it, making it all your own creation at the end of the construction.
  9. Your calendar would stick out like a sore thumb at home or in the office and the beautiful part about it is it can immediately declare yourself as an animal lover with its unique shape.
  10. You've helped sustained a shelter for 500 over stray and abandoned cats and nearly 200 similar plight dogs at Animal Lovers League. Good karma would follow you and your dog after this generous offer to help other less fortunate cats and dogs.

Some creative individuals who have gotten their calendars turned them into:







I love this!

Marley and Me

Finally took some time to finish off those last few chaps. I rate it 5/5!
For someone emotional like me, be prepared with lotsa tissues. I was crying till my nose started to run. A really touching real life story and definitely worth a read.

Can't help but gave cai many hugs after completing it. Marley is simply cai-ish. All his actions and tricks just make me wonder if they are the same dog.

SOS

It's really stupid to be racking my brains just to resolve my windows auto restarting problem that started like a week ago. I'm just wasting precious time that could be utilized to finish up the AR stuff.

For the entire afternoon, I was trying to pinpoint if the auto restarting is caused by
  1. XP patches not updated?
  2. Malicious spyware
  3. Creative webcam???? (The program I run requires that)
  4. ARToolKit
  5. Drivers
  6. Overheated hardware
After ever restart, I get prompted by windows that the system has just recovered from a serious error. Yes SERIOUS ERROR. I was definitely worried for the first 2 times I got that. Now after getting so much of it, I'm already used to it.

You can imagine me burrowing my head reading all possible causes and trying to patch the machine. Not to mention the amount of time used to try to remove old and possible malicious drivers installed.

After all I think I had done. I need SOS still!!!! Man... Shall fight that machine till the end tomorrow.

In search of Da Babe



This voice sounds vaguely familiar. Do remember a lecturer sharing similar comments before during lecture.
Could it be someone from SCE?
Lets see:
1) LT 23
2) Probably Indian Lecturer from his accent
3) Someone with moustache and bald head

Potential Candidates and those whom have taught my batch:
1) Sabu Emmanuel
2) Amitabha Das
3) Benjamin Premkumar

My best bet would be our dear Mr. Sabu Emmanuel. Voice fits, baldness fits, moustache fits. I'm reserving my comments regarding the sexy part ya.

What's so convenient about it

When the physical object is only taking its place in your bag yet not at your beck and call unless you have done enough in other people's opinion.

Where's that logic?

You are in the wrong when:
You keep having to change plans to send people to and fro the hospital without complains.
For always hogging the car when its not for your own purpose.
For using the car when you finally could squeeze time for yourself after fulfilling your responsibilities.

When it is your duty to ferry your elders, you don't complain about the petrol using up like as though it is dirt. Nevermind the fact that you are already taken to be the chauffeur naturally and giving up your own time. Who the hell in this world wouldn't get pissed hearing someone say that they dun see the need to pay when they dun have the so called "right" to the car after using it for their OWN purpose. That's just so convenient. I wish I could use that cos at least half of the petrol used is NOT for myself if you really want to be calculative.

Given 2 choices:
1) Having the car most of the time cos you need to ferry people around.
2) Paying to drive only when the car's available.
Which category would you prefer?

If you can fulfill the car owner's request of going to places at the expense of your own leisure time. Spend the entire saturday away not doing your own stuff. Taking time off to make sure the car gets serviced and be constantly alert to do so since the rest don't care (Nevermind the fact that you get blamed for not updating them). Paying for all the petrol expenses of ferrying. Yes. By all means, relinguish me of those duties so that I can have more time for myself and only paying when I need to. I thank you.

Curls

Hair's not very healthy but good enough for me.
Shot taken at the courtesy of chao's new canon camera.

Been a hectic week with work and shuttling to and fro the hospital. Terribly in need of rest.

Disturbed

By the sight of a stray dog lying in the middle of a fast moving traffic. The good thing is that all vehicles stopped to avoid it. Bad thing is that I couldn't stop in time in the next lane and was sending my sis to school. Dunno why but felt so bothered after that cos in my mind, that dog could still be alive. If no one bothers to carry it to the roadside, it may die if negligent car drivers just drive over it again.

That idiot that ran over it. Should at least stopped and remove it from the road right. Was still disturbed when we reach NTU. Decided that I should turn tail to check if it's still there. Was hoping that some kind samaritan had already reached it and moved it to the roadside or sent it to the hospital. Was wondering what I should do if I managed to get back and it is still there. All the what ifs started to cross my mind. What if it's still alive? Am I able to handle and carry it? Which vet opens this early in the morning? What if it's dead? Will I have the guts to carry it? Should I just leave it by the roadside or take him to the hospital to be cremated?

By the time I exited the expressway, I have already made up my mind that if it's still there, I will simply bring it to the nearest vet be it dead or alive though I was feeling really scared myself. But thankfully, someone had already either shifted it or taken it for help when I went to the exact spot to scrutinize. There was no body on neither the road nor side. Some kind soul must have brought it to the hospital.

Though it feels really silly and stupid to be turning back to check on a possibly dead animal, but guess I just had to to put my heart at ease. Knew that something like this would happen at the mandai stretch. Had spotted many strays in that area and many a times I had to slow down my car on the rightmost lane to honk when they tried to step out. Haiz...

Think I had fever yesterday night, all from the tightening of my braces.
Couldn't sleep well at all cos I kept waking up and feeling the pain.

Anyway, took cai to bishan park this morning for his sunday walk and there was some spca event as well. Saw Dr. Cheryl Tay giving a talk on pet care. Much prettier in real person than on tv. A pity I had no camera with me.... Think I spotted this other model turned tv actor as well that got much coverage recently.

Met cherrie in the late afternoon to pray and to get our hair done. Finally got my curls which I tot will make me look old. Maybe I looked abit more mature but am overall happy with the effect. Hairstylist's effort.

PAIN

Current PSI standing is 143. Great... The car has just been washed, waxed and polished. The haze isn't helping.

Just had my cheeky tooth braced up. Just one word - PAIN.
The rest of my teeth has been subjected to numerous tightening and shifting so they dun hurt as much as the first few times. But this is my cheeky tooth's virgin bracing and it sure reminds me of my first bracing experience. Having a migraine coming and yet I dun wanna depend on painkillers.
Sometimes physical pain doesn't hurt as much as the other kind. Blah.

Will be heading out with cherrie to treat our hair. If the weather is better and I can bother to wake up, shall take cai to the parks for a long deserved walk.

Lacking Energy To

Short Term Goals:
  1. Wash the car
  2. Wax and polish the car
  3. Clean up my room
  4. Exercise
  5. Shop
  6. Go Guan Yin temple
Long Term Goals:
  1. Setting up own biz
  2. Seeking own dream
I'm but a lost soul in some sense. Not lifeless yet limp. Wanting to do something with life and yet lazy. Finding that drive and zest for life again is seemingly difficult.
Making content with what I have now seems like a easy option. lol

1pm @ home on a lazy Saturday

Cai's looking outdoors in a daze. He must be wondering why the night is falling so soon.
It feels amazingly serene all of a sudden right infront of the comp typing this entry. The entire sky is gonna give way to a huge rain storm I presummed. The darkness that encompasses my usually bright living room is pretty welcoming. Soon, me and cai will step into this storm due east. Will it be as dark over there as well?

I wondered how you are getting at work. I supposed there isn't a cause to worry. I'm sure you will get by fine in this aspect. Haven't forgotten you in my prayers.

时间

有些人在生命中是很难要忘就忘的. 所流下的痕迹, 美好的记忆应该也很难抹去. 时间若是证明爱的指标, 我会给自己那个时间. 就算最终自己爱的人已经放弃, 已经找到幸福. 虽晚了, 至少我知道心里面的答案.

远方

Favourite song of the week.
Sad songs like these just gets to you huh. =P

在冷的时候我们都彷徨
取暖的人怕他出门游荡
也是守着爱守在某个地方
多难都不走管它黑夜漫漫

也许反方向
也许隔了好几道墙
等默契用心培养
无论在哪个角落
感情线更坚强

爱人在远方
眼神却热切的眺望
沿着天传递温暖的想象
感动发烫

直到白发苍苍
岁月给了好梦一场
我的世界你不退让不绝望
不再流浪

也许有泪光
也许思念让人发狂
爱越累越该珍藏
无论在任何季节
都不乱也不忘

我的世界你不退让
也不再绝望

等待已代替了感伤
每一刻都想回到你身旁
热泪盈眶

我们的手谁都不放
你的世界有我保护
有我能体谅

你的世界有我保护有我扛
有我能体谅啊

Advices

A conversation with a net friend M of many years:

M: how many years did u receive education
M: from 7 till 21 right ?
Me: Around there
M: how many years did you train yourself on love matters
Me: in jc, there were crushes
Me: first relationship during uni
M: nah thats puppy
M: i know of many ppl who got married and unhappy of that but they have to live with it
M: maybe you dunno what you want tat's why you are unstable
Me: how do you know what you want?

M is 38 and a divorcee. He has met and experienced more than me. Though he gave much practical advices, matters of the heart is always complicated when you are in it.

M: trust me, I have been through all that you have. It's always devastating when you have to hurt someone whom you have loved and loved you.
Me: I must be mentally weak.
M: i dun think u are weak
M: on the contrary, i thot u are strong in mind
M: just diff to decide
M: maybe weak in heart

Be neutral was the conclusion he offered. Cos that's when I will really know what I want. Time will take away the pain that I was fighting to remove. Weak in mind or heart? Perhaps he's right.

Hand Foot Mouth

Back home from aunt's house cos ah ma's currently resting there after her discharge. Ting was just recovering from fever as well. Aunt must be pretty tired taking care of the both of them.

Was having dinner together when I noticed a slight rash on Ting's hands. I must really belong to the group of paranoids cos I started to look at her feet as well. Goodness... there were rashes there as well. Warned aunt the possibility of Hand Foot Mouth cos Ting has ulcers in her mouth too.

While we rested when gram, aunt hurriedly took Ting to see a doc. It turn out that our worries were right. Doc also suspected HFM and Ting is now put on antibiotics.

Had to take a thorough shower upon reaching home. Already am feeling unwell when I went over. The whole day long, I was feeling feverish. My voice is losing and the phelgm's building up. I guess my immunity system is weak right now. If HFM were to find its way near me, I will be so darn weak and ill.

Keeping my fingers cross...

菊花台

你的泪光 柔弱中带伤
惨白的月儿弯弯 固住过往
夜太漫长 凝结成了霜
是谁在阁楼上冰冷地绝望

雨轻轻叹 朱红色的窗
我依身在纸上 被风吹乱
梦在远方 化成一缕香
随风飘散你的模样

菊花灿烂地烧
你的笑容已泛黄
花落人断肠 我心事静静躺
被风乱也微摇
你的影子剪不断
独留我孤单在湖面神伤

花已伤完 飘落了灿烂
凋谢的市道上 冥冥不堪
手摸独樵 愁心拆两半
他已上不了爱一辈子摇晃

谁的江山 马蹄声慌乱
我一身的戎装 呼啸沧桑
天微微亮 你轻声的叹
一夜惆怅如此委婉

菊花灿烂地烧
你的笑容已泛黄
花落人断肠 我心事静静躺
被风乱也微摇
你的影子剪不断
独留我孤单在湖面神伤

Please hold on for me can?

Sometimes when things starts to come to you suddenly, you run. This time, I'm just choosing to face it. If there's anything to prioritise at this time, I must say its my grandparents. As much as I hate to think of it this way, there's a chance that my beloved grandma will leave me soon. The only thing I could do now is to be by her side as much as I can.

Suddenly, you see yourself doing what may deem silly in the past. Chionging down to the temple and selfishly request that the goddess will do anything in her means to retain her on this earthly tour even if it means to shorten my own lifespan. Willing myself to believe that things will go all well and soon she'll be up. Holding her still very warm hands by the bed watching with trepidation each time her heart beat goes beyond 150 and then instantly fluactuates back to 100 then 80. Heart skipping everytime the alarm by her bed beeps. People sure learn to treasure when they are about to lose huh. I'm so fan jian.

Seeing her starting to state her will, asking A to do this, B to do that and C to help safekeep her heirlooms to be passed down upon her death just makes me wanna cry. Despite the fact that she tells me she wishes to see me get married, she has already prepared all her granddaughters' 嫁妆 just in case.

Grandpa's been crying secretly. I see the frail him and wondered how much have he understood her condition. He's also going blind in one eyes himself and supposed to be getting treatment for it. No doubt he is seriously a nag really and I understand why grandma can get so pissed when he does that. To others, he may seem to be one that cannot be relied on, I see him as a doting husband that never fails to be there for his wife in her woes though she may not appreciate it.

Ah ma... I also wish you can see me get married ah... Please hold on for me can...

感伤

真的真的不想让你陪我一起伤心.
这样自己只会更难过吧.
看你忍着哭泣, 心也开始随你泪流.
事情怎么会如此转变呢.

Half Time

2 weeks have passed. Time seem to pass really slow and draggy.
I wonder by the dateline, would things turn for the better or worse. Suddenly the voidness that came seems soothing cos you are devoid of all emotions and one becomes more relaxed.

Ganbatte everyone.

Nice yet sad..

你的泪水蜿蜒的流,没有一丝挣扎,也不做任何反没。
是我猜中你的心思,说中你的心事,就可难舍。
事到如今,谁爱谁多,不用分说。

全怪我自己太洒脱,以为还能够填补你心中的伤口。
当我给的越来越多,你却显得退缩,仓惶失措,
才发现你的泪全不是为我。
但付出的是,感情怎能回首,爱都爱了又当如何。
怎么能让心不痛,面对着你,依然苦我,爱与不爱的失落放在胸口。

但感情的事,怎能权衡轻重,错都错了又当如何。
爱个人爱到忘我,咎由自取,深陷其中,但仍然也会软弱,只是不说。

阴影

当一个人的过去一直无法抹去, 是不是代表还是走不出阴影?
为以前的一切困扰又如何解释?
是不是自己还无法放下, 还是依旧有眷恋?
当自己不确定时, 是不是该放掉一切先?
真的不想害人害己...

Day 1

Starting on a journey of innerself seeking. Woke up this morning free of dreams which is a good sign. Wondered how GF is doing cos afterall, it's gonna be a tough ride for him too. But I'm resoluted to seek the old me. The old me that's bubbly and alive. Not this one here that's hovering around. First thing first, I need to clear all the thoughts that's bothering me. I'm ganbatteing.

Against Breeding

Was out with mom one weekend afternoon and met an old couple sharing our table. They were very nice and started to engage small talks with us when we all found out that we are dog lovers. Then mom brought in the topic of castration. The pair was appalled at the mentioned and told us that they prefer their 2 dogs (a male and female) to be natural cos its against god's will to castrate them.

Yah. I understand that some religions don't encourage going against nature. But my stand is, I'm totally against indiscriminate breeding. Better to be safe than not, what more with a pair of them that could easily produce offsprings. Though they assure that it was not their intention to breed, I explained that accidents do happen. What if their female dog gets pregnant? What if the female bitch dies during childbirth? Are they ready to rehome those pups? Are they gonna sell them for money? I was explaining so much of the cons of breeding and how many abandon dogs there were already outside. I know I came across as being pretty direct in my stand. Yes, it's nice to know that they are the kinda dog lovers that will not just sell the pups for money, but why a male and female in the first place?

What really pissed me off at one point was that they mentioned their dogs were pedigree so naturally people will wanna adopt them easily. They have already had got bookings just in case the accidents do happen. Well..... I did all I could to deter them and hopefully some precaution they would take.

Haiz... Some people dunno how tiring a rehoming process can be.

National Dog Walk 2006

Had a real great time with the gals and the furkids. Its been so long since the same group of us had an outing together. Those little imps simply enjoyed their day dashing around freely inside the enclosed dog run. Surprisingly, notti cai always kept himself close to us. Was half expecting him to dash off and get lost in that vast sea of people. Recall does work it seems.

Just stepped out of the car. Cai's already getting excited.

Registration is simply a hassle cos of the crowd.

This cute Chiwawa prays to us as we walk by.

Bro with a new hairstyle plus a cute dog. Wat a combi yah.

Me and cai.

A group take! Smilez.. There's (from leftmost furkid) Magic, Cai, Xiao Hei, Wang Wang and Mun Mun.

More fats

I need to gain those few pounds of fats on my face. Used to look so much chubbier than now lor. So much nicer than the skinny being now. No wonder people always sigh and say "Those were the good old days"

Back with a vengence

Yah la... Steered cleared of blogging here for a while le. Perhaps its time to 重出江湖.
Shall still stick to not revealing everything yet but in time to come, I hope whatever I blog here will be the exact tots of mine. =)
Re-sorting out my thoughts now and am thinking that I have been overly self indulged in my own problems that I forgot that there are still so many things that I have to see to. I'm slowly finding my old self back and I'm excited about it!
So people watch out, I was just down and out. Now, I will be claiming back those promised lunches and owed drink sessions.

Who dares incur our wrath? Muahahaha

~~ROAR~~ !
Some idiot scratched the car bonnet!!!! That's after like a new paint job on it lor....
#$%$^%#$@#$@#

Obviously the scratch mark is done with a coin and a real long one that person did his/her artwork lor. Really wonder who could be so itchy to take the car as his/her canvas?? We are trying not to jump into conclusions yet cos the immediate few people we tot could do it included "enemies". I imagine her sitting in her cool living room laughing her guts out. When I meant enemies, I actually meant these 2 women that lived somewhere near us. Haiz.. A long story to relate and I dun think its even worth my effort mentioning them and the past deeds they did to us. As a 晚辈, I actually feel sorry for them. Well, it may not be them anyway. Let that the person who scratched the car not be caught by us. If not, he or she will really experience how it is like to be skinned alive.

Bleh... Actually, I only know how to talk big. Muahahahah...

50+ and Counting

Calculated like almost 50+ entries that I have saved as drafts and not published. Afterall, no one will really show the real side of himself/herself, not at least to the public. Still blogging under my anonymous blog which I find more gratifying in some sense cos no one knows you to judge you or comment too much about the post unless something contraversial comes up along the way.

Towards Nation Building

Yeah! Forward Singapura forge a future bright.

Just got my dreaded Income Tax notice of assessment. Though a meer $200+ which is totally insignificant to some, it's a whole big deal to me lor! That can get me at least 3 full tanks of 95 octane petrol. Boo Hoo~~~~

Well, I shouldn't be complaining when the dad is using installments to pay his tax instead. I want money!

Feeling Lame =P

Has been away from blogging for quite sometime. Seem like my thoughts have been void for long cos cant seem to have anything to blog about these days.

Well, coming to the topic on love. Cherrie was just asking me over the phone if love is selfless or selfish. In my opinion, I have always thought of real love to be selfless. But it seems like many people think it's otherwise. Then she popped another question.
Who would you hurt? (1) Someone who loves you alot (2) Someone you love.
Wah Cherrie... You always throw tough questions leh. Can't answer that neh. Cos both also equally hurting on yourself.

You tell me lor.

Can grow up?

Pek Chek. Dunno how the hell this person got my msn email addr and added me. Tot it could be my cousin cos of the year and surname indicated on the other party's email. Only did he intro did I realise it wasn't so. Sorry if I generalise here. Just cant help but think that many guys dun seem to act their age... This guy on msn tried so many times to hit on me even though I expressed non interest in continuing the conversation and told him I'm an old auntie liao. Kept asking where I live, what's my age etc... Being polite initially, I mentioned that I was busy and he continues to send many nudges.

HELL!!! You understand it when someone says she's busy not! 21 years old k. He could jolly well fit into age 15 category. Incessant questioning, self-introductions only rendered a more irritated avril. Well you can guess, within the next few seconds, he is off my list. Damn! Act 21 la!

Breed-specific legislation - PUNSH THE DEED NOT THE BREED

Sometimes as humans, we think too highly of ourselves.

We try to play God.

"Breed-specific legislation (BSL) is spreading like a cancer from one community to the next in some parts of the world. Denver, Miami and the Canadian province of Ontario are forcing residents to hand over their beloved and innocent family members for unjustified euthanasia, else they must move from their homes...or stay to become criminals to protect the ones they love. Oklahoma, California, and other locales are currently considering similar breed specific bans and/or discrimination. In response, guardians of Pit Bulls, American Staffordshire Terriers, Bull Terriers, Rottweilers, Dobermans, Chows, and more, have posted their feelings to the website, www.sorryagain.com, in protest of the slaughter of innocent dogs and the unconstitutional laws destroying their families."

This law, authored by Senator Jackie Speier and Noreen Evans, allows counties to target dogs based, not on their actions, but their breed.

You don't even need to guess. I got super sad upon reading this. I never once find any of these furballs ugly. So what if they are anyway! No one has the right to take lives except god himself. And if you think you are any better than these dogs, think twice. It's always unfair that the uglier breeds gets discriminated. That doesn't mean that they are in any sense less abled to love than others. The video clips below arose from protests all over regarding this new legislation to cull pittbulls especially... Yes they do have a reputation for being a ferocious breed. It's a totally wrong impression. Pitbulls can be as docile and as loving as any other breeds. Who is to cause that monsterous behaviour in them? Very simple, their owners - irresponsible and cruel humans who ill treats them. Any dog has a chance to become ferocious if they feel very threatened. Even cai starts to get defensive and growls when he feels that way. Some people just ought to be ashamed of themselves for that kinda discrimination! Humpf! Angry!!!!!

Breedism!!!! It's tantamount to killing an entire race cos of a few black sheeps...










I like this quote by Mahatma Gandhi

"A greatness of a nation and it's moral progres can be judged by the way it's animals are treated"

So how do you judge yourself?

I knew it...

See la.. I knew having a car will start to pose problems de lor... Should have totally condemned the idea of getting one when mom proposed to. The high cost of maintenance will soon take away my social life, drain up my financial asset & increase arguments on how the car is to be used. Afterall, only me and bro are licensed.

Talking about the cost of maintenance can kill already. Firstly, the immediate effect would be the seasonal carparking fees not only at our HDB carpark but possibly NTU as well!!!!!! NTU is gonna implement the stupid electronic charge system to all open carparks! Hell!!!!!! They used to be FREE lor! Checking the website for seasonal parking in closed carparks is like 90/mth lor!!! Imagine that to apply to open carparks soon -.-" And what's more the price is applicable to NTU staff... I'm not considered their staff so do I pay even more??? Man... What a headache. In that case, wouldn't I have to handle both parkings??? Wah liew.... As if I earn millions like dat. I dun even wanna think about the petrol cost, annual insurance and road tax.... Too sian to even try to calculate.

Just feeling peeved that we have to land ourselves in more debt when we did not even ask for a car in the first place. Man... Life's just gonna be hell soon.

Life's the double edge sword

Talked to GF online not long ago. Was discussing BM's latest post and the topic digressed into that of how people will be happier if they are contented with their lives and not expect too much. Like how women nowadays tend to expect so much more. If I were to be a lowly educated and paid girl working in factory, then perhaps I wouldn't think too much except how I could get hitched and marry and give birth.

GF mentioned "life is full of hope n challenges, not everyone wans to live a simple n meaningless life, but as long u dun 对不起 yourself it's ok" But how do one draw the line if you are doing something that you think is 对得起 for yourself? Everyone is suppose to determine his or herself their own level. Somehow I thought I lacked it.

To GF, he thinks most people just avoids it. Cause u set it, u should have a strong duty and responsiblity to live by it. Which perhaps is too tough for some people to cope and thus causing them to break down. To him it's simply means the commitment everyone sets to oneself. Perhaps I'm still shallow cos I still cannot really comprehend totally as yet or I have never really determine what are the things I should do to 对得起自己.

I questioned him to ask if a person's commitment to himself is to stay happy but yet at the same time, it will cause unhappines to others, will that 对得起自己. This is the analogy he gave: everything in life, there's pros n cons

u take something, u give something
if u take a seat on a bus, u deprive others a seat
u breathe in oxygen, u reduce oxgyen for others
everything in life is an double edge sword
hence u got to make the necessary moderation

Okay... Quite a handful to digest. I shall mull over that! =P

So smart~

Just saw a newspaper article of a doggie saving her master from a seizure by dialing 911. She can even detect her owner's blood pressure and give warnings. How smart is that! Think she is dued to receive some award for her act. Man... Animals can be so amazing at times. =)
Of cos, cai's amazing as well! =P

That lack of energy

Already feeling a little low. Dun have the energy to go cheer another up. Think it's time to take time out and fade into a recluse for a while at least. Homeward bound that's where I shall head.

CommunicAsia 2006

Another round of Exhibition at the Singapore Expo. Introducing CommunicAsia2006 where global players congregate. Though my company is exhibiting a small demo there, it seems to be quite a major event with over 1400 companies hailing from 50 countries and taking up 6 exhibition halls. Time to pack!

So You Think You Can Dance?

They surely can. Love this pair at it.

I can but not like Ashle and Blake... Sadly 10 years of dance will not bring me into such a competition. Lol~~!

~Enjoy~

All that Samba!


I love waltz....

Dream Dream Go Away

Dream Dream go away
Come again another day
Dream Dream go away
Little Avril wanna SLEEP~~!

Aiyo.. Another round of weird dreams plaguing the night. Cant recall them again but I woke up feeling a slight startle. Wonder what's with my mind these few nights. Purging out useless thoughts?

~Come back my dreamless nights~

Dreamz

Been having weird dreams consecutively for the last 3 days. I thought taking regular medication will aid in better night rest. They are weird as in the least expected people turn up in it and weird scenarios happen. Thankfully, I do not wake up feeling drained like before. Guess medication still works.

Sianz... I forgot to bring medicine to work today!

Situational Moods

As expected, cai's reaction to strangers and outsiders is a simple yet loud bark down. So unless you are brave and strong hearted, you can forget about visiting our house. Anyway, cai uses this method to test newcomers to see if they are afraid of him. Once he establishes that the outsider is not afraid he will start to warm up to him/her. On the contrary if one shows signs of fear, he/she will get bullied by him cos that's where he will continually try to jump on him/her.

Bro's friends came over this afternoon to play majong. Wasn't home but guessed cai must have given them a huge "reception". He sure is one funny dog la. According to bro, each guest were given some treats and were taught to make cai do tricks with them. Being too treat-oriented, cai displayed his best behaviour and did all that was told very obediently. But once treat time was over, he went back to his notti self. Anyone that stood up or moved his/her chair a little will receive barks from him. He's like the commanding officer telling them to sit in place and not try to be funny. Man...

Anyway, guessed cai does bring some luck afterall yah. Was also playing majong yesterday and I won for the first time after I made cai sit with me. It was a 自摸 somemore with cai accidentally shifting one of the winning tile pattern that I was to pick. And bro did his "career" best when he made a 9 台 (tai) with cai on his lap today.

Operation Hong Kong 26-29 May

Finally... A real chore to upload these HK trip picts (not the full set still).
Well.. A picture paints a thousand words so I shall add more picts and text less. In fact, I'm just plain lazy la k. =P

Day 1
Our first stop is none other than the Hong Kong International Airport. Not as impressive as Changi Airport, but structurally pleasant.

One drawback though. The ceiling seems to be made up of part glass part opaque material. Nice it may be for the design but sunlight does get in lor...!

Anyway, we were stalled at the airport for almost more than an hour waiting for the transfer by the tour agency to our hotel (Dorsett Seaview Hotel located at the Kowloon Peninsula). Man... First trip to HK and definitely I was getting that impatient bug. *Embarrased* was feeling alittle irritable though ya... On the way to our hotel, I took chance to take some shots of cos. Fine weather! A great start yah. Before long, my frustrations subside and I was able to start enjoying!

Streets of Hong Kong

Upon unpacking the luggage, we were near dinner time. So the four musketeers took to the streets and admire the night life in HK. Our first stop was Mong Kok (旺角). Look at all these above head signboards. So darn retro yet cool. A pity that we dun get such sights in SG. Correct me if I'm wrong. =P
Well, GF was wondering what I was giggling at when I pointed out the streets' names. Interesting Street Names after vegetables and food stuff. Wah... Increase my hunger pang only.

If I did not remember wrongly, we had our dinner somewhere nearby before we headed towards Tsim Sha Tsui. Dinner was a simple fare (had Wanton Noodles) cos being not very canto oriented, we were a little awkward initially. Anyway, our agenda was really to walk and look around first.

Day 2
The tour agency provided us with a half-day tour. So breakfast in the morning was Dim Sum! Yeah! Finally some authentic HK Dim Sum!!! Or so I thought. We were taken to a restaurant called 海天 (Sea Heaven) at Hong Kong Island.

Eh... I dunno what this is called but I have had similar ones in SG before.

Up next were a few trays of Cha siew buns, Corn cakes, Har Gao (prawn dumplings).

Then the usual Siew mais, Pork dish (排骨肉)
Overall, I would have rated breakfast as normal. Maybe my expectations were too high yah. I have had better ones in SG before. Nevertheless still good enough.

Say cheese Amy and Donny!

Me and GF cant wait to leave our mark at the restaurant as well.

Next up on the iternary was towards the Taiping Mountain. I should say the weather din make things easier for us . Anyway, we had to stop at the midway point cos getting to the top would take like 3 hrs... From the bus's window, you see raindrops obscuring our views...

By the time we stepped out, it was starting to rain like anything. Well, a test of photography skills ya. Thankfully, we still had some nice shots.

We got slightly wet while trying to take this picture. Notice the theme of the day was pink? lolz.

As our bus took us downhill, our tour guide Mr Peter Lee pointed out to us to look at a interesting hill sight. This hill is special cos it resembles a sleeping dragon. Circled in the picture is its eyes and nostrils.

And according to him, 2 houses on the hill belongs to Jackie Chan (top circled) and Tony Leung and his girlfriend (lower circled). Jackie's house supposedly was one of the best positions in Feng Shui methodology cos it's situated directly at the dragon's head. And HK's top few tycoons supposedly have their houses build there as well.

Off to a temple nearer to the lower hillside.

Huge statue of Goddess of Mercy.

Time to leave our marks and strike poses again.

Along our way towards Aberdeen, I spotted the Singapore International School. You can imagine how excited I got. According to the tour guide, it's considered one of the prestige schools and one definitely has to pay alot to study there.

Aberdeen we went to explore the earlier origins of HK or residents living on water (水上人家 or 原族民).

Patiently awaiting our turn.

Old bum boats.

Residents preparing for the Dragon Boat Festival.

Cool restaurant above waters. Heard its darn expensive though.


Enjoying the breeze!

And it was lunch after that. Our final complementary tour stop.

Given no time to lose, we headed towards the Tsim Sha Tsui area wanting to visit the Hong Kong Space Museum, Arena of Stars and the Clock Tower. Cant help but wanna take some shots of Victoria Bay first.



The famous clock tower. Erm... Am not sure of its origin nor its significance though Bleh!

GF challenges the clock tower to a height contest.

As photography wasn't allowed in the Space museum, I regret to not being able to post pictures inside. Was fun though learning new facts about space. In fact, I had wanted to be an astronomer before when I was younger cos I am always so fascinated by stars and planets. Well well.. Lol. They had a simulated space walk which I was alittle embarrased to try.

Back at Victoria Bay heading to the Arena of stars. One can't help but take a few more pictures yah. The tallest building looks like a shaver.


Night Scene at Victoria Bay Arena of Stars.

New director on board.

The main focus of this picture was really that oversized statue of Bruce Lee.

Day3
Simple yet cool breakfast of hot bean curd, soy bean milk, dough sticks and porridge.

And off to Ngong Ping, Lantau Island to visit the world's tallest outdoor seated bronze Tian Tan Buddha. I must say that the MTR system in Hong Kong is really fast. It got us to our destination MTR stop really fast. Well, from there, we experienced one of our worst bus rides (approx 45 mins) from the station to our destination. One round of bridge and we conceded defeat from nauseous.

One of the main attractions of this Buddha relic is the climb up 268 steps and circling the platform (the lotus) where the Buddha sits. Much to our disappointment, thick fog came in (I guesed it must be the clouds) and masked our view....

Alas! I cant see the Buddha!!!! Kaoz.... Really would love to 一睹他的风采.

This is how the buddha should look in a fine day!

As it was raining pretty heavily, we were forced to purchase ponchos. I swear I was to the point of shivering.

Seeking warmth from engines in the back engine room! lol~~

With HK$60, we get to visit relics residing inside the buddha and a vegetarian meal included at the Po Lin Monastry. Erm... was initially anticipating looking at the Sharira of buddha but what we got to see was some urn holding it... Anyway, the vegetarian meal provided was really good but a tad too much.

The fog cleared quite alot while we were at Po Lin monastry. That lifted my spirits and I thought we could go back and take a better shot of the Buddha.

But as we were leaving... The fog came in again!!!!


K lor... Reduced to taking pictures near the gigantic urn.

A test to see how foggy it was. Believe me, we probably get lost if we had stuck to the original idea of walking the wisdom path.

Off to the famous Huang Da Xian temple. Was getting really late by the time we got there so we didn't get to see the so called famous fortune tellers.

This must be the wishing section. Was unsure what to do when we overheard a tour guide telling her group to walk 3 rounds clockwise and 3 rounds anticlockwise to ride ill luck. For the chinese who believe in Tai Sui (太岁) and those whose years happen to clash with it (犯太岁) doing the walk around will alleviate the matter.
My first ever pigeon tasted for dinner that night at Kowloon City. Quite costly cos we opted for a restaurant.

Was getting really late and tired when we decided we should try taking the small mini buses since we had tried practically most of HK's public transport. Interesting experience cos you can simply just flag them down from anywhere at a flat rate of HK$6.

Look at their assortment of finger food at the roadside stalls! Yumz!

Smelly beancurd at Sai Yeong Chai Street1
As expected, we were all dead beat by the time we got back to our hotel after another round of shopping at Mong Kok.

Day 4
Another round of authentic HK dim sum. Not bad at all and most importantly, the price was reasonable for a restaurant.


We splitted ways after breakfast cos was really running out of time for last min shopping. Well, before that, Gf and I had to really stop to try out at HK's famous desert stall.

After a heavy round of shopping, me and Gf lunched at one of the famous roadstalls to try out 车仔面 or Yong Dao Hu Hong Kong Style.
Darn yummy k!!!!!!! Though it was like around SGD10 per bowl but darn value for money ok. The ingredients were fantastic! I shall let the pictures explain themselves.

There! Remember to visit this place if you ever go to Mong Kok yah. Highly recommended.
