Mozzie Alert

I received an SMS from an old friend yesterday..

"Been admitted to hospital for Dengue fever"

It was Jijay, my secondary school friend,

my goodness... the thing is, he isnt the first case I've heard about recently, one of my school mates kena last week. One my my sister's friend also got it.

This evening, on the way to Tan Tock Seng Hospital to visit Jijay I met another secondary school friend, Weiliang..
"I'm going to visit Ah Neh.. he got dengue la"

Then he told me his Neighbour is down with the disease too.. KNN What the hell is going on man, Singapore is being over run by Mozzies.. Dengue must be in fashion...but.. I dunno, it's definately a trend I don't want to follow.

Apart from being thrown into a ward with five other old geezers, Jijay is recovering and seemed to be in high spirits... get well soon man,

Gerard's birthday is coming.. 30 pints of beer coming up...

Happy Birthday Gigi

Monday night,
I joined GIGI the Bongo player (back in high school) and her pals (less the rest of the block72 pple who weren't able to make it) for a coffee session to celebrate her Birthday which falls Today.. 28th June, she turns 18 this year.

We hung out at Mr Bean at Princep Street, drank overpriced coffee/tea and talked about work, school, aspirations (did we?), childhood memories, i.e Constable Ah Cai, BookWorm club and entering the CTE tunnel for the first time.

Also, What happens when u have a girl who has both
1) a camera and
2) a blog?

you get
1) someone like Diana and
2) someone to take my pictures (finally I am infront of the lens.. hahaha)

Here are some of the photos from Diana's camera...

Derrick and me

Kah boon, Gigi, Diana, me, Derrick

Cheerleading Photos, 2005

This January I took my Olympus to NTU's Cheer Leading competition, I just wanted the experience of shooting at an event, since a competition like this is visually rich and stimulating.. photographer's field day.

I didn't shoot for any clubs or halls, so the photos just ended up being archived in my collection.

I did however send those I took of Hall15(my ex-hall) to their website and they said wow, very nice, thank u.. we will put them up.. blah blah, but until now, nothing - Knnbccb

Some of you may have seen these but I have decided to "reprise" some of them to showcase my work and here are (to me) the best 10 photos of that spectacular evening :)

A common theme...

Lets air those armpits!!

The Long Story Short

I read in the papers yesterday about Monkey bars posing a risk to shorter children. Logic is; being shorter children, they would fall for a longer distance before they hit the ground.

This article struck a cord close to my heart, not because I had a bad fall from a the Monkey bars but because I am a short person and being born in the year of the Monkey, I love the Monkey bars.

I say, the environment is not going to adjust to you. Children have to learn to break their falls properly should they fall and not use being short as an excuse to skip the monkey bars. Singaporeans are fucking pampered, just look at comments some people made about the Tree Top Walk some weeks ago, they wanted more paved walk ways in the jungle track.. etc. They might as well make a travellator like those u find in Changi Airport.

I couldn't do a single chin-up when I was in Sec 1. So at recess time every day, I went a swinging under the hot sun at the Monkey bars. Part of my secret training included doing pushups against the toilet sink (luckily it didn't give way).

Come the NAPFA test date, I pulled a grand total of THREE chin ups, more than necessary to pass. And when Army started, I cleared all the 11 obstacles in the SOC (Standard Obstacle Courses) with ease (like a monkey) and no I didn't use a shorter wall or had the ropes lowered for me. I did the same thing my six footed friends did and I could clear them faster than many of my friends.

Look at the play grounds of today, foam padded flooring have replaced the sand pits we played in. No more huge and crude concrete structures to run around in, instead we have metal structures, and bars much smaller in size and height. Also, we have mental games like tic-tac-toe. wtf..

Bring back those days of rough and tumble for our younger generation, a little bruise and a scratch is going to benefit more than it hurts in the long run.

it's good to see you here

If I was the DJ, I would play you this song

Hope you have a nice friday at the office and an enjoyable weekend,

Good Riddance (Time of your life)
-Green Day

Another turning point
A fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist
Directs you where to go
So make the best of this test
And don't ask why
It's not a question
But a lesson learned in time
It's something unpredictable
But in the end is right
I hope you had the time of your life

So take the photographs
And still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf of
Good health and good time
Tattoos of memories
And dead skin on trial
For what it's worth
It was worth all the while
It's something unpredictable
But in the end is right
I hope you had the time of your life

PS. the definition of cute given by Merriam-Webster Online reads:

1 a : clever or shrewd often in an underhanded manner
b : IMPERTINENT, SMART-ALECKY (don't get cute with me)
2 : attractive or pretty especially in a dainty or delicate way
3 : obviously straining for effect-
- cute·ly adverb
- cute·ness noun

Old Soldier

so tired tired tired....

I just returned to camp this week to resume my national service after 3 years of studying.. and suay suay this whole week the boys are going to the school of Cockmandos at Changi for High Confidence Course training..

so I have to follow lor...

climb here and there, jump here jump there... luckily I didnt have to demo much due to my lack of currency, spent today dispatching people off the flying fox

In fact so many things have changed during these three years, here are a few

1) The lunch packets used to tabao food rations have changed from styrofoam boxes to thin biodegradeable card board boxes (2 thumbs up!!)

2) The faces have changed..all the NSFs are younger than me... I looked at one guy's camp pass and he was born in '86.. oh my goodness... im such an old soldier

3) The tonner has gotten bigger, formerly called 3 tonners (those big army trucks),they are now called 5 tonners. These beasts are huge and can carry a third or even double the number of troops the 3 tonners used to carry. In fact I had the chance to sit in one today.

Now equipped with air conditioned cabins, the seats tower above all the other vehicles, three side view mirrors on the passenger side. The driver pumped in his Jay Chou music as we steamed down the expressway. I could feel the power of the engine as it accelerated, only to be restricted and restrained by the imposed speed limit. It felt like I was riding a tamed beast. A wild animal on a leash.

4) my mind is fried now.. cannot think of anything else.. haha

Meanwhile u can try this "Quiz".. :-)

Congratulations SIYANG, you are...

mr brown of

Like that ad for Toys 'R Us, you are that kid who doesn't want to grow up. Except you do. And now you're just a big overgrown kid who doesn't want grow up. You have a warped yet addictive sense of humour. It takes skills to poke fun at serious things and you have no problems doing that. Your peers look up to you and yet you're humble about everything. You are an infantile.

Drilling My Brain

It's been 2 days and the drilling has not stopped. I want to take the drill and drive it into his balls....

Sounds like, someone in the opposite block has decided to redo his whole flooring and is giving his flat an extreme makeover... and it's not even going be Chinese new year yet. I guess he is trying to get it done before the 7th month Hungry Ghost festival

what's wrong with the floor? Bloodstains? Murder just took place in your home?

my goodness... Singaporeans are spoilt man..



Yesterday, LOST premiered on Channel 5. I didn't intend to catch it at first thinking that it would be a dumb-survivor-like average drama. Basically it's about a group of 40 odd plane crash survivors trapped on a strange island.

Sounds boring rite?

NO... the first episode already poses a whole list of questions for us to think about and showcases a myriad of interesting characters.

1) What's the strange thing/beast that's roaming the jungles, scaring the shit out of the people, the thing that grabbed the pilot from the cockpit and left him all bloodied in the tree?

2) A polar bear in the middle of the jungle?!?!

3) The ex-Iraqi Republican Guard soldier "Syed"? He has shown to be useful to the team being the communications expert, how will he fit in? Is his friendliness a front? Is his background a cause for suspicion?

4) The female lead, "Kate" who was a prisoner on the plane. She escaped the clutches of her minder (the injured US marshall) in the first episode. The others do not know her past and her status as a prisoner. Her ability to lead and mix with the others has lowered their guard against her and gain sympathy from the audience. But the marshall has come round and is looking for her. What secrets does she hold? Is she a dangerous person?

5) The Korean couple who can't speak English. Will their language barrier be a liability to the team? Do they have any special skills?

6) The drug addict rocker "Charlie", no drugs on this island for you man.. cold turkey anyone?

7) The menacing ah beng fella, everyone thinks he's an asshole but is tolerant of his ways, barely. In the first episode, he shot the charging polar bear dead. Will he help save the day again?

8) The male lead "Jack" a doctor who is trying to keep all this shit together, what problems will he face?

9) The botak old man who seems to be very knowledgeable but is just taking it easy while the others scurry around. I got a feeling he will rise to the occasion when the time comes, or will he?

10) Lastly, the strangest and most disturbing development: the survivors have picked up a looping distress signal being broadcast from the island itself. Yes, someone else seemed to be asking for help. It was an eerie message in French of the voice of a woman calling for help, the message also said that the rest have been killed. Spine chilling news to the survivors.

Also, the message has been playing continuously for 16 years.. yes.. that long. How can it transmit for so long? They had to have a sustainable power supply. This is no ordinary island. Are we looking at some other dimension? Will they meet the same fate as the other party calling for help?

Will they ever be found?

Question: What is this Uncle Doing?

Hawker Politics

Six of us old friends met up for dinner on Saturday night. Instead of the usual SUNTEC or orchard road dinner, we decided to eat at Newton Hawker centre where we could order a spread of dishes and share them among ourselves.

It's not my first time there, nice place.. open air at some sections, complete with a hearty selection of local hawker fare. Such places are increasingly being replaced by sanitized-airconditioned foodcourts. My other favourite places are Chomp Chomp (at Serangoon Gardens - forever cannot find seat one) and the food centre at East Coast Park (recently renovated - I however prefer it's old spacious look).

Land of touts (photo taken from

So we were standing around looking for a seat, but it was still early and many tables were empty. One friendly uncle approached us and offered us a table (he was the owner of a seafood stall) but we hesitated, knowing that if we sat there, we would be obliged to buy from him. In fact he made this quite clear;

"how many of you? - five? six? here, just nice.. you can sit here, this table is big enough, if you have more people coming you can... take the long table over there, but..... you should give me priority la"

"er no thanks, we will.. walk around first"

"walk... around... ah?" gives me the if-i-let-them-go-they're-not-going-to-come-back look

We stand aside to discuss and also wait for our sixth friend to arrive. This time, we are IN BETWEEN two rows of shops that are facing each other. The uncle's shop on one side and another shop opposite.

We were in no man's land.

Suddenly this old auntie with a terrible hairdo closes in on us... getting pissed off already... more and more people corner us.. "Boss, we have tiger prawns, blah blah.. stingray.. lobster" Can't you see we DON'T WANT YOUR FUCKING SEAFOOD

I decided enough was enough and went to get a seat on my own, so I walked towards a round table for SIX. The auntie (this time a fat one), followed us and wanted to direct us to a table for FIVE which was nearer to her shop and she said... "I can get another chair for you" But i ignored her and headed for the table for SIX (which was supposedly in shop 1's territory), she said..

"no-no that one is different"
Different? of course it's different, it has enough seats!!!

I ignored her, there's a damn table here for SIX, why do I have to squeeze at "your" small table for FIVE? As we began sitting down, shop keepers from both stalls converged at our table.

We were in the middle of a confrontation that was happening over our heads.

Fat auntie started by accusing the uncle for being "guo fen" (going overboard) for stealing her customers, Uncle then said that we approached him first.. I just sat there and watched in a mixture of anger and disbelief as they were arguing in hokkien. It was an ugly scene which drew stares from other tables and turned heads. It was starting to make me sick and spoil the fucking mood.

The uncle lost the argument and backed off, I guess he was being a gentleman. Anyway how can anyone beat an angry fat auntie in an argument? Impossible. "Hell hath no fury like a woman's scorn"

Auntie left a menu on the table. So, just to please them, we ordered their sting ray for a lousy ten bucks and nothing else. haha

I've heard that touting was bad at Newton, but I've never been in the middle of it. Ironically, this place is one of the popular attractions for tourists. Where better to showcase our ugliness(competitive edge)?

Yet again, another display of all things Uniquely Singapore!..
