And you thought only the Chinese did it… ================================ SYDNEY – Eight years after it hosted an Olympics that were famously hailed as the "best games ever," Sydney has had to confess that it faked one of the key musical performances at the opening ceremony in 2000. The revelation came after it emerged that nine-year-old […]

Had a lovely weekend at Bintan.  We saw lots of wild life at the resort… shall let the photos do the talking…   We had a comfy room on the 3rd floor.           View from our hotel room.           There’re 101 things to do at Nirwana Gardens. […]

Feng Tianwei Jia You!!!!!!

I’m really really impressed with the latest addition to our table-tennis team, Feng Tianwei!  Though she’s a "lowly" world #9, the tenacity she has against players who are ranked higher than her is amazing.  I’ve been dutifully watching the "Today in Beijing" every night at 11pm just to catch the table-tennis team’s performance and I […]

The Lovelies – July to Aug 2008

Finally got down to sorting out the photos in my desktop computer – putting them into folders, etc, and backing up on my portable hdd.  Decided to post these lovely photos of the bunnies from July to Aug 2008 online.  I have many many photos of all the bunnies that have ever lived in my […]

Half Solved…

After the upgrade to 2.6.1, they still didn’t work.  HOWEVER, […]

If I could take a pic…

Double Happiness

Our women’s table-tennis team just gave Singapore its first Olympic (silver) medal in 48 years.  48 years – that’s a wait that started even before Singapore gained independence.  Kind of put things into perspective doesn’t it?  Our girls fought hard.  They clawed tooth and nail for every point in the semi-final against Korea to earn […]

WE BEAT THE KOREANS!

SINGAPORE BEAT SOUTH KOREA IN THE BEIJING OLYMPICS TABLE-TENNIS WOMEN’S SEMI-FINALS TO ADVANCE INTO FINALS ON SUNDAY!  WOOHOO! Would it be too much to ask for a gold now?  😛
