Alvin and the Chipmunks. "Bad day"

Friday, June 30, 2006


I got a question to ask all readers out there. Its about movies. How would you define a "good movie" or a "bad movie"?

What constitute to a good movie? The comedy? The action? The storyline? Or the hidden meanings? Or perhaps, the actors and the actress?

Just watched a movie VCD. This movie got me thinking about some stuffs.

This movie is about a girl, she had a foster father and 3 uncles who are in the traids. The father and the 3 uncles are very close together, are buddies and brothers. Then suddenly, the father dies (murdered) and the 3 uncles started fighting among themselves. The murderer is one of the uncle, and the other uncle finds out. He got murdered too, by you know who.

The girl wants the uncles to disband, cause she did not like to see them fighting among themselves, and in a bid to stop their fighting, she make the ultimate sacrifice, her life. It was after her death that the surviving uncles and the traids disband and the murderer live the rest of his life as a monk.

The movie got me thinking. Brothers or buddies are not supposed to fight among themselves. Especially for power and prestiage and money. What's the meaning of "Got wealth we enjoy together, got misfortune, we face it together" Chinese translation from " you fu tong xiang, you nan tong dang"? What's the thing about power and ego that is more important than brotherhood? Don't they think about the past, how happy they were when they are out enjoying together?

Number 2. Why must someone make the ultimate scarific before all the others see the light?

You may think, its just an movie. But look around you, look at the past archieves of the newspapers. How many lawsuits you saw that the siblings suing each other to grab hold of the wealth of the parents? Or worse, resort to killing each other just for the family fortune? The black politics of companies or even goverments?

Talking about friends, lets move on to another path. This just came into my mind. Take a moment, stop and think. How many "good friends and buddies" you had in the past that you had lost contact? Do you still remember them? Can you still recognise them when you happened to pass by on the street? (I prob disappoint my English teacher again, for being out of point.)

Treasure your friends, and with buddies, the same principle applies in a relationship. "GIVE AND TAKE".

Back to the movie. What i like at the end were 4 sentences. (At the last part of the movie).

The world did not change because of her.
Yet, she tried her very best,
To change the people around her.
There is good in us, Still........................

Coming to the 4 sentences, can you remember anyone in history that changes the world in terms of moral awakening? Can you imagine the efforts they put in to change the world? Can you imagine the difficulties they face?

Last but not least, the only heartaching (nothing to do with moral this time) part of the movie, is the crashing of multiple cars during the duel. No, they are not Ferrari, nor Rolls Royces, just a normal saloon car, but the sheer multiples of it, i feel heartache. Hey, Mr Director, if you are seeing this, pls spare one car for me please?

Okie, now then i shall answer the most important question that you all have in your mind. Title of the movie is, "Mob Sister".

Heat of the World cup fever rose again

This is crazy. Its pure madness. The World cup craze fever has just rose a few degrees, and there are some individuals getting their brains fried over the world cup.

Below is an article i had just happened to come across.

Man pulls TV from house fire to watch match

Thu, Jun 29, 2:00 PM
BEIJING (Reuters) - A Beijing football fan refused to let the small matter of his house burning down disturb his enjoyment of Tuesday's World Cup match between France and Spain.

A fire broke out in a hutong in the centre of the Chinese capital at 3am local time on Wednesday -- kickoff time in Hanover -- and gutted the traditional courtyard dwelling, the Beijing Daily Messenger reported.

"When the neighbours shouted 'fire!', I took my little baby and ran out in my nightclothes," the man's wife told the paper.

"My husband paid no attention to the danger, just grabbed the television and put it under his arm.

"After getting out of the house, he then set about finding an electric socket to plug in and continue watching his game."

The anti-social timing of the matches broadcast from Germany, which is six hours behind China, has forced some Chinese fans to go to great lengths to follow the action.

One man quit his job in Beijing to return to his hometown Chongqing so he could watch the whole tournament uninterrupted.

State news agency Xinhua reported that the 23-year-old's boss at the IT company had offered him a pay rise, but he turned it down flat, saying the World Cup was more important than his job.

The Guangzhou Daily reported that local police were forced to release a thief arrested for stealing a mobile phone when the victim refused to press charges because he did not want to miss the start of a match.

Although there are also many female World Cup fans in China, one man in the southeastern city had to sign a contract with his wife agreeing to do all the housework during the month of the finals so he could watch the matches at night.

Another from Putian, Fujian province, took a less diplomatic approach, Xinhua reported.
When his cheers during the Argentina-Ivory Coast match woke his wife and she switched off the television, he locked her in their bedroom and settled back down to watch the game ignoring her loud protests.

What has this world gone to?? How come there are some sane people who turn insane once in 4 years?

Soccer Fans out there, please forgive me in saying this, but i feel that World Cup is not the greatest sporting event in the world. Olympics is. Olympics involved all kinds of sports, from shooting, to swimming, to track and fields etc etc. It involves indoor to outdoor. Soccer is only about 20 men running after a ball, 2 man posed to catch the ball, 3 fellows running around, but cannot touch the ball.

True, soccer is exciting, but so is basketball, volleyball, and other ball games, (but not golf, a game which i never understand).

Talking about ball games, i got a little joke to share with you all.

Imagine a manufacturing company.
The employees (production operators) will prob play soccer during their spare time.
The Supervisors, Managers will prob play tennis during their spare time.
The Directors will prob spend time in a game of golf during their spare time.

What's the moral of this joke?
- The higher you climb up the ladder of a career, your balls get smaller.

Hmmm.... What about me? Most ball games i play are pool (consist of 16 balls) and bowling (a heavy ball).

IPPT Results

Its a great day today. A great day for disappointments. A great evening more like it.

I know RTs are not meant for you to train till you pass IPPT, the period alone is also not enough to train up ppl who has been slacking for years to pass IPPT, unless you want those ppl to drop dead first, but at the very least, RT can help to improve your physical fitness, right?

Don't nod your head too fast. Its been proven wrong. After going for 1 and 1/2 months RT, today's IPPT results are envidence that more RT does not mean better results. I did not expect to pass this IPPT, but at least to see an improvement to my results. And to add salt to the wound, a couple of things happen that make me more disappointed.

My chin-up station. 2 times no count. Sian 1/2 when i heard the words "No count" that i lost momentatum. Could not pull up further. Thanks to that PTI, who is quite unpopular with all ppl.

My Sit-up. I did 40, but the results slip show 30.

Did not have the heart to go for my 2.4 run, but i told myself. Go all out for 1 round, and compare the timing compared to last time. I want to see an improvement in my timing, at least i know the time spent in RT is not in vain.

Wrong, WRONG, WRONG! Dammit. I tried, but my timing is worst than my last IPPT! WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH ME? My pace was fast in the beginning, but my stamina gave up before i could reach my target. What's the heck is wrong?

Has all the 14 sessions of RT been in vain? Has all those hours wasted? You are supposed to improve, not the other way round!!! What's the heck wrong with me?

All those RT lesson, all about the total body fitness, shoulder, arm, trunk, legs, heart and lung... Training technique as advised by the encik, which i tried during my running, and the result is this. Utter disappointment. After i made an effort to prepare myself for the IPPT.

Okie, let's analyse this. My timing is worst. Issit the weather? Issit the enviroment? Issit my body at that point of time? Anything is possible, but should not affect my performance so much. So, What is it? Can anyone enlighten me?

Okie, not all are bad. My shuttle run improved quite a lot, and my standing board jump improved too. At least not so bad.

Another IPPT in 2 weeks time. Lets see what i can come out with.

Phone calls

Something strange happened in office today.

Usually, during the launch period of a new product, the phones will be very busy, ringing non-stop from reporters (for the A&P side), distributers, retail chain outlets, enquiries and as well as goverment authority. (This is just an example).

Throughout the morning, the phone is quiet. Too quiet. I was really enjoying the peace (once in a blue moon), while working.

Then it happened. My boss stepped into the office, and the phone started ringing. Even nonsensical calls, like telemarketeers. (asking for the person in charge of the company Dinner and Dance, trying to sell products etc etc.)

This left me to ponder today. Is my boss attracting phone calls?

Starbucks again and again and again

Nothing much this weekend. Most of the time is spend sleeping, catching up my overdue rest.

Went Starbucks at BPP on friday with Aaron and his gf. Nothing much, just chilling out, idle chatter, enjoying my ice-blended mango flap. Brought my notebook there, hoping to do the presentation powerpoint for the meeting the next day, but there's no internet connection out there.

Went back and sleep, till sat afternoon. Rushed down for the meeting. After meeting, its dinner time. Went for steamboat. Its been ages since i had my meal there. And after dinner, its starbucks time again. Same old ice-blended mango flap.

Sunday morning, its RT again. Almost cannot wake up. It was raining, and the RT training was very sing lang. Well, its a sunday after all mah, a day where almost everyone rested. After RT, went back home and fell asleep. (I do really know how to sleep huh??) Woke up at night, and went to starbucks at BPP again, with aaron, his gf and Lina. 3 starbucks in 3 days. And yes, its the same old ice-blended mango flap again.

Starbucks management staff who happened to see this, i got a suggestion for you. Please provide memberships for regular ppl like me, and have great discounts on purchases, and make it a lifetime.

Something interesting to think about.

Okie, time to share a little secret of mine. I've got an account with, (wlny) and i always post in the forums, joking around, chatting (just like MSN) and sometimes, shooting people off.

There's a post in wlny quite sometime back, at that time, when i read it, it was interesting. But as time passes, i forgot about it, till recently, i came across it again, and hence, decided to share will all readers out there.

A University professor at a well-known institution of higher learning challenged his students with this question.

"Did God create everything that exists?"

A student bravely replied, "Yes he did!"

"God created everything?" The professor asked.

"Yes sir, he certainly did," the student replied.

The professor answered, "If God created everything; then God created evil. And, since evil exists, and according to the principal that our works define who we are, then we can assume God is evil."

The student became quiet and did not respond to the professor's hypothetical definition. The professor, quite pleased with himself, boasted to the students that he had proven once more that the Christian faith was a myth.

Another student raised his hand and said, "May I ask you a question, professor?"

"Of course", replied the professor.

The student stood up and asked, "Professor, does cold exist?"

"What kind of question is this? Of course it exists. Have you never been cold?"

The other students snickered at the young man's question. The young man replied, "In fact sir, cold does not exist. According to the laws of physics, what we consider cold is in reality the absence of heat. Everybody or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-460 F) is the total absence of heat; and all matter becomes inert and incapable of reaction at that temperature. Cold does not exist. We have created this word to describe how we feel if we have no heat."

The student continued, "Professor, does darkness exist?"The professor responded, "Of course it does." The student replied, "Once again you are wrong sir, darkness does not exist either. Darkness is in reality the absence of light. Light we can study, but not darkness. In fact, we can use Newton's prism to break white light into many colours and study the various wavelengths of each colour. You cannot measure darkness. A simple ray of light can break into a world of darkness and illuminate it. How can you know how dark a certain space is? You measure the amount of light present. Isn't this correct? Darkness is a term used by man to describe what happens when there is no light present."

Finally the young man asked the professor, "Sir, does evil exist?"

Now uncertain, the professor responded, "Of course, as I have already said. We see it everyday. It is in the daily examples of man's inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil.

To this the student replied, "Evil does not exist, sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart. It's like the cold that comes when there is no heat, or the darkness that comes when there is no light."

The professor sat down.

The young man's name: Albert Einstein


I dunno if this is a true story or not, but if it is, Albert Einstein is really a genius. He is able to rebute the professor till the professor is speechless. That's what i called "A man with guts and brains" I mean, how many of you out there has rebute your teachers, lecturers with logic till they are speechless?

When you read the article, the reasoning seems so simple that it might be staring at you right infront of your face, but you keep turning your head right, left, up, down and behind, you miss the obvious, and miss the simple reasoning.

To be like Einstein, you brain needs to "switch" very fast, and come out with the best possible solution to the problem. This is the same as First Aid. You encounter an Casualty, you need to observe the problem, and come out with an effective solution in order to accomplish your "mission". Meanwhile, you have to forsee any contingenies, and counter them befrore they happen.

That's the moral of the story.

No one's stupid.

Blog, blogger, bloggest!!!

I have a new hobby recently. I like reading. Some of you may groan at the thought of it. Those close to me will think its nothing new, but its totally new to me, as a hobby.

I like to read blogs. No, i am not your local coffeeshop auntie who likes to hear gossips, and spread them around like some wild fire running amok in the face of the wind. I just like to read what other people wrote, and to see the humor side of it, to grin foolishly at the screen, just like the patients from the mental insitute.

Different people have different writing styles, and from those styles, one can deduce the day's event, how the blogger feels, any funny incident, or incidents with a pinch of salt taken (why salt? why not sugar?) From blogs, i know what are happening around me, updating myself with all the foolish acts done... etc etc.

Surprisingly, you can gain knowlege from blogs. Some blogs will gave you something to reflect on, just like you deduce the storyline from a movie, to learn the moral of the story, and blogs can let you have a sleepless night, just on reflection alone. Some people wrote about quarrels with their loved one, some just wrote about world cup, some wrote about their daily movements, and some wrote about what they think.

Me? my purpose of blogging? I just wanna share with all with regards to interesting happenings around me, and hope someone, somewhere will grin foolishly at my post, reflect on my post, commenting on my poor pathetic spewling, grammer... etc etc... (As per normal, i let my English teacher down...)

So, what exactly is a blog?

From the website, the definations are as follows:

Blog = an online diary; a personal chronological log of thoughts published on a Web page; also called Weblog, Web log

Blogger = a person who keeps a Web log (blog) or publish an online diary

Bloggest = No entry found for bloggest

RTA Again (part 2, the pictures)

The interior of the van. Look over to the vehicle comdr side. ITs the dashboard that pinned the casualty's leg. See how tight is the space? The Windscreen is shattered too.

Damaged picture of the van after the casualty has been evacuated. SCDF officers are still around.

Rescue in process. SCDF personnal using mechanical tools to release the casualty. The others are stablisating the casualty.

This is taken minutes before the casualty is being freed. I was stepping on the front of the van and the railings when accessing the casualty's condition, just like what the SCDF ppl are doing and when i helped the AO (ambulance Officer) to put the oxygen mask on the casualty's face.

I was feeling so helpless before the SCDF people come. All i could do was to keep calming and reassuring the casualty, and the dressing to his cuts on the head. I cannot freed him, i could not evacuate him. What happen IF the casualty has no pulse and no breathing? How am i suppose to give CPR to him when he is trapped?

Heard from one of my friends at RT that there's another RTA at bukit timah, and there's a P0 case (P zero). I dunno if that's true or not, but its sad when you see another life being wasted due to one's careless or reckless error.

RTA again

Yes, the cooling system works perfectly. Its a success!

Its the end of a tiring shift for me, but its not over. Encountered a RTA at AYE, just outside NUH, after the flyover. Slowed down to see if there's any casualties. Saw 2 men crowding around the vehicle commander side. That's when i saw the casualty.

My first response is, "Damm, another RTA." Nope of the professional help had arrived yet. Stopped my van along the bus stop, and took out my first aid kit.

Surprisingly, i walked to the accident scene. I did not run at all. I used the time i walked to observe the surrounds. I sniffed at the air. There's no smell of POL. Good. No danger. The casualty keeps trying to move, and the 2 men is trying to help him out. That's when i knew the driver was pinned down.

I walked over to the casualty, and took a good look at the dashboard, and noticed that his left leg was pinned down badly. Its a crush injury. The 2 men are still trying to get the casualty out, by trying to push the van out(the left side was crushed against the railing). Stopped them immediately. I knew what they have good intentions, but it will futher worsen the injury. The casualty was shouting in pain at that time.

First thing i ask them:" Ambulance and fire engine called?". They had called. Then when i started asking the casulty questions. He replied, and i concluded that he is fully conscious. Next, i took his pulse. Rapid and weak. Things are not looking good. He might be going into a state of shock. He keep saying his left leg very pain. His head was bleeding. Had to climb up the front of the van to reassure him and to give treatment.

Covered his wound, but apart from calming him down and reassure him and monitoring his condition, there's nothing else i can do. He keeps screaming in pain very now and then. Have to wait for the fire engine to come.

Ambulance came. Informed the condition to the paramedic, and she access the situation, and besides oxygen, there's nothing else the paramedic can do also.

Fire Engine and Red Rhino finally came. They swung into action. Getting very dramatic. This is the first time i seen SCDF officers cutting up a vehicle to release a trapped person. They (SCDF Officers) are good, and efficient. They rush into action. Took about 30 minutes to release him.

Help the SCDF ppl to get the trolley cot ready, and that's when i overheard the paramedic commenting that the casualty has sustained fracture on his left left leg. Thank god i stopped those men from moving him and the van too much.

Police came the last, as per normal. They are even later than the EMAS recovery lorry.

After the accident, realised that i got blood stains on my arms and T shirt. Not much though. In the end, everyone, including paramedic, SCDF, police, even the 2 men who had pushed the van thanked me. Well, what i did was nothing. I am sure there are ppl who are first-aid trained will do the same thing. LEARN FIRST AID, IT MAY SAVE A LIVE!

Spoke to some ppl who witnessed the accident. THere's one malay rider who is damm lucky. The van missed him by inches when it swerved after colliding with the bus and swerved. The driver of the van looked very guilt sicken, and is full of remose. I sympathise with him. No one wants to be in his shoes at that moment. I can guess the driver's thoughts. What if... What if... If i can turn back the clock.... etc etc...

Once again to all drivers, riders and predestians out there, BE CAREFUL, DO NOT TAKE RISK, COZ THEY ARE NOT WORTH IT!!!!

Work and work and work

The night is still young, the machine is running, my stomach is groaning and i am starting to feel sleepy. I cannot go home, i miss my bed, my TV, my DVD...

I am still working now. Its is now 2300 hours, and there's about 8 more hours to go till i can finally leave this place. I had already worked for 14 hours straight, and there's about 8 more hours. Nope, i am not an workaholic, nor a crazy guy.

Testing of new cooling system for the vacuum dryer in process. In the past, once the water gets heated up, we have to change the whole tank of water, and when the full production gets underway, we have to work 3 shifts. To me, this is a total waste of water and manhours. My long ago proposal to my boss is finally fullfilled. We are using chilled (5 degree C) water to cool down the water tank, using heat exchanger cooling coil method. I dreamt of this system, i advised contractors of my system which i had envisionised, it's my baby. That's why its me staying over the night to monitor the testing process, instead of my colleagues. I want to know first hand if it work, after spending so much time to design and to persuade my boss.

It is working beautifully. The water in the tank does not remain at room temperature. The temperature dropped! No more water wastage, no more night shifts for my colleagues! It worked!! It actually worked! 8 more hours to go before declaring the test a success, and to declare the cooling system operational.

Finally, the sweet taste of a small success began to appear. It's not the first time that my proposals to make the production more streamlined work, (some projects failed before), but still the taste of success is goddamm sweet! (pardon my language). It's going to be a success unless something cock-up with the chiller or the pipe cracked.

Nope, its not over yet. This project stills need some modifications. I can forsee some problems and works still need to be done.

8 more hours. I can almost see my boss smiling. He was quite fed up with the frequent change of water and the wastage of manpower for night shift.

8 more hours. To change the factory operations from now on.

8 more hours. To give everyone more rest, and a break from the graveyard shift.

8 more hours. To give me and my colleague back the 5 day office hour work schedule.

Just 8 more hours.

Father's day

Welcome to RT Phase 2!!!

Yep, went for the first Phase 2 training. Surprised that i can wake up in time for it. Slept very late. But somehow when my alarm clock rang, i sprang up from bed. If only i can do the same for work.

After some rest, i guess my body has recovered. I can do my chin up effortlessly (up to my IPPT passing standards), but i guess, in doing that, i had exerted too much strain on my muscles, and they are aching right now as i am typing, but the ache is not as much as i had felt last week.

Come into running. Phase 2 is running a new route different from phase one, and there is a upward slope for around 150 meters. Sian 1/2 when i see the slope. Started running quite fast at the beginning, but upon seeing the slope, my paced slowed, and later, could not recover my pace. I must get used to it liao.

Overall, enjoyed my RT today, and guess, i was the joker today... PTI wanted to dismiss us early coz its father's day, and i replied, "yes father" back to the PTI, and the whole phase 2 cohort laughed, including the PTI. Haiz~

Talking about father's day, i would like to wish my dad a happy father's day! You are the one who provided for the whole family. Work is never simple and easy, and yet, you managed to provide for us. Thank you dad.

At the same time, i would like to wish all daddy a happy daddy's day!!!

World Cup and Driving

Dear readers, friends, once again, its the world cup fever, and yes, i do mean world cup fever.

Take a good look around you at work or at school or any public transport during the normal peak hours. This morning, i was amazed by the amount of avaliable parking lots in my office building carpark. Nope, i did not arrived early. I arrived at the time when usually the lots are full, and have to drive around looking for a lot.

I wonder how many people are infected with the world cup fever, and i can imagine the cash registers ringing non stop at clinics world-wide, and the doctors rubbing their hands in glee at the thought of the extra bounus in this period. And i can swear that some doctors are thinking of writing a petition to the FIFA to hold the world cup every year.

World cup fever is back, and it strike with more intensity than H5N1 virus. A total pandamic, and total anarchy, total chaos. World econmony is held at stake as more people call in sick, sleepness set in while at work, rioting by the soccer fans in the streets, and much more which one cannot imagine. The only good business is your local kopitiam, betting centers, pharmacticual, soccer jersey shops and maybe, starhub.

Everyone's talking about world cup. I can hear it in the coffeeshop, as i sit, slurping my ice milo. People in RT are talking about it, as they are warming up for IPPT, i can hear it in the streets, as groups of men, women, boys and girls are discussing the aftermath of the finished match and the tactics of the teams in the coming match, how fat a certain player has become, and individual making calls to their bookers to place bets.

Talking about betting on world cup, one will wonder how much money transactions occured during this fever period. How many will lost their processions, and maybe, the collaspe of their families, How many will make a windfall and sqander it away. Prob billions.

Ah Yes, a side effect of the World cup fever. RTAs (Road Traffic Accident). I encountered 3 RTAs on sunday and 2 on Tuesday. (I did not went to work on Monday, as i am not feeling well, and i swear that it was not due to the pandamic World Cup Fever). I would like to know the relationship between World cup period and the rate of RTA. Could the traffic police release the figures? I am sure ppl would like to know.

All drivers, riders and perdestians out there, PLEASE, be careful of any sleepy driver appearing out of nowhere anywhere beside you. All drivers, please be careful when you are driving, and if you are not in a condition to drive, please be considerate.

Take care peeps, and all the best to all the players in the world cup. FAIR PLAY!

Finally!!! A new post...

Hi Peeps! Miss my Blog? I know its been sometime since i update, but i was so busy with work, SJAB and RT.

Just finished a camp with a corp. Very tiring, but it was interesting. I learnt something new from the camp. Well, no matter how old or experienced you are, you are always learning something too!

These few days encounter quite a number of RTAs. Especially today. I guess its the combination of raining weather, poor visibility, and world cup that causes all these RTAs. Drivers and Riders out there, please be careful, and if you are not in the condition to drive, please do not drive.

Encountered a total of 5 RTAs since i last blog. Am i that heng or suay?

A Taxi mounted the curb as well as the railings. Thank god it did not flip. Is the driver trying to do a stunt? No Casualty.

RTA on Expressway. This is a multiple vehicle crash. Have to drive around the crashed vehicles. Could not see any casualty around.

Same accident as in the above picture. Different car blocking lane 2. Have to drive around this vehicle

In this RTA, the bike (upright) was stopped in the MIDDLE of the JUNCTION, and the rider is speaking to the car in white, also stopped in the MIDDEL of the JUNCTION, while the red car on the right keeps on horning non-stop, for what, only god knows.

The pictues are some of the RTA that managed to capture on phone.

Next Tue will be my IPPT Test. My results are known even before i go for the test. My legs and arms are aching. Can say i am weaker than a gal now.

Very tired. Been sleeping for a total of about 10 - 12 hours for the past 4 days and 3 nights. But those past days are very interesting. Thu - RT, Fri - Camp, Sat - Camp (hike, walked distance around 10km), Sun - RT. That was fun.

Okie, i need to catch some sleep. Cannot keep my eyes open liao. Must admit that i am not getting young liao.

Routine life.

I am living in a boring life. Nothing interesting enough to pen down in this blog, except for a fast response re-enforcement (10 minute noticed given) to NYP for a Charlie. (Anyway, we were a bit too late, as the Charlie has been evacuated to a Hotel by an Alpha.)

My life these few weeks revolves around Work, SJAB, RT, Pool and Supper. Super duper boring right? Looking forward to this week, as production shut down for upgrading and maintainance works. Ain't going to be siong. Needed time to catch up on my paperwork and my next production plan.

This coming weekend got a camp coming up. Going to be a holiday rest for me from work. Getting stressed up at work, with the new product production, applying for a license with the HSA to do certain things, and the writing of the SOPs.

Went to surf the SPCA website today. There are so many dogs for adoption, and sadly, most of them are not approved for HDB flats. They are not "toy breeds" of dogs. How are those dogs going to find a home with a nice family to live in? It was posted on the website that there are dogs with the SPCA for over 6 months! Well, on the other note, i supposed that SPCA is after all a heaven as compare to them roaming around after being abandoned by their heartless owners.

Hmmm... Its time once again to hit the bed, jam a bit on my guitar, read a book or do a self reflection on today events.

Take care folks.

Aaron's Cast.

These 2 days nothing much interesting going on. I am living in a boring and a routine life. Same old routine... Go work, Play pool, visit aaron... etc etc.

Henry and Caining came visit Aaron today also. Guess what? We all signed on his cast.

A well wisher who wrote her wishes...

Another well wisher who is just a little bit shy...

While this Well-wisher is so bua hao bye.......

Nice Drawing? its done by Aaron himself

The final (unfinished) masterpiece.

Aaron's fracture is more complicated than all of us thought. And everytime Aaron went down for an medical appointment, it seems the doctors say different things everytime, and each time is worst than the last time. Doctor had commented that its a serious fracture.


Don't know why, but i am feeling weak these few days. Tire easily too. Is it because of the RT? Is it because of the work stress? Is it because of too much pool? Maybe its a combination of all factors. I need a break, which is next week.

Death toll of the Indonesia had raised to 6,234, and counting. Shortage of food and medical aid. We Singaporeans should count ourselves lucky that we don't have to go through all these natural disasters, but please do not forget our neighbours who are not that fortunate.

A human can be like a tennis ball. The higher it goes, the harder it falls, but the re-bounce of the ball will also be higher.
