Baby Angel 

Guppies waiting to be fed…

Gorging on frozen bloodworms!

Three of my favourite fishes: The Albino Corydora, Platy and Swordtail.

Neons galore!  There’s about 300 of them in there but most of them can’t be seen.

Bottom of the tank…

A bit of sacarsm, straight to the point and a tinge of humor.


a trip to the past

Posted on

Yesterday morning, I went to Bukit Timah Market for breakfast with my Mum, Brother and sis-in-law. After that, we went to Bukit Timah Shopping Centre to look around. It’s been years since we last visited and I’m elated to know that the Nonya stall selling the bestest Mee Siam in the whole of Singapore is still there!

The Mee Siam is really different from those found outside and has a Peranakan taste to it!

In the earlier days, there was a YaohanSupermarket located right inside Bukit Timah Shopping Centre and there was also a Waffletown restaurant that serves very nice waffles and fried chicken!

Bukit Timah Shopping Centre was alot busier in the olden days and it was almost like the Orchard Road of the West!

It’s hard to explain but Bukit Timah Shopping Centre was really special to me. There is an affinity between us maybe because we are of the same age!

Urgh! The atrocities of men!

This MTV cracks me up! Hahaha!

interview at jurong island

Posted on

Went for an interview at Jurong Island this morning for an Administrative job.

One thing about companies located inside Jurong Island is that they pay rather well because not many people are willing to travel all the way in.  This is because Jurong Island has lots of oil refinery companies and we have to exchange our IC for a pass and go through security check by the police before we could step foot onto the Island.

I actually don’t mind the hassle since transport is provided and the pick up point is near my place. However, the bad thing is that working hours sucks. Monday to Thursday is from 8AM 6PM while Friday is 8AM 5PM.

Considering that entry into Jurong Island is subjected to security checks, it means that I have to wake up real early to clear the ‘custom’. If I missed the transport, I’ll have to make my own way in by cab.

Furthermore, transport is only available from 7AM to 9AM and from 4PM to 7PM. This means that there will be no transport in between from 9AM to 4PM. If I need to move around the island, cab is the only way…

It’s a male working environment as I will be working on-site. This means, I’ll be working inside a air-conditioned container at the construction site with LOTS ans LOTS of bangalas. In other words, when I’m going home, I’ll also be squeezing the bus with LOTS ans LOTS of bangalas. Not discrimination against bangalas but just to describe the situation that I’ll be facing IF I take this offer.

Should I?

Are you worse off than her but half as strong?

This is the story of a woman who was born without arms yet she never concede defeat to her fate.?Instead, she faced everyday challenges with much gutso just like any other able-bodied person.?Not only could she catch crabs, farm, open locks, cook and sew, she could even write with her feet!

Is there anything that she can’t do?

Not only did she managed to take care of herself, she could even take care of her family’s daily needs!?And some of the stuffs she did even excel what others could do!


Yet, how many of us could be like her??Faced with just a little setback and it’s the end of the world!?I really need to learn the spirit of never say die from her!

Our greatest enemy is ourselves.?No one could stop us from being successful except us.

Oh, China! you’re such a… joke?

There’s a new theme park in China!  By right, it should have been exciting news except that…

Doraemon looked like a freaking nose-bleeding ninja with FAT fingers while Kitty-Chan looked like a ghost with burnt whiskers! And the poor Seven Dwarves!!  As if suffering from cleft lips are not enough, they looked hypnotised with their bulging eyes! 

It’s perfectly fine if China wanted to have a theme park like their HongKong neighbor but can’t they at least find someone with better workmanship to manufacture their puppets?  It’s bad enough that their puppets are so damn fugly but to see their heads literally dropping off is really a pain to look at!

This is sooo embarrasing… When will China ever stop making a laughing stock of herself?
