It’s late but I had to blog to get this off my chest.  My Twitter friend from China shared that he was a victim of extortion today.  He took bus to school (not sure which uni… is there more than 1 in Guangdong?) as per normal.  When getting off the bus, 2 migrant workers accused […]

Natural Disasters

Received an e-mail from our global CEO stating that our New Zealand Christchurch office has sustained some internal damage following the 6.3 magnitude earthquake that hit NZ on Mon, thankfully our colleagues are safe, and that the senior management in NZ have mobilised staff to work from another nearby office. I tried to imagine what […]

Horlicks (2005 ~ 15 Feb 2011)

Horlicks left us today.  My dad called at 8:22am this morning to say that Horlicks looked weak and she refused to eat.  I rushed over to the house.  Saw that her breathing was laboured and she had period spasms.  Over the next 2 hours, her breathing became more and more laboured, accompanied by coughs & […]

Men & Women

Singapore Drivers

I think drivers in Singapore are car snobs.  Whenever I drive the Kia Rio, I get harassed, tailgated, etc.  When I drive my dad’s Passat R36, however, no one bothers me.  If I signal to change lanes, I don’t get cars speeding up to block me.  What’s with that man!  I’m still me you know?  […]

Autumn Concerto

The latest drama I’ve been following is 下一站,幸福. Got to say that my opinion of Vanness Wu really changed. Haha. Never knew he can actually act. Found him a lot less irritating than ha was in Meteor Garden. Actually, I didn’t find him irritating at all! Anyway, I’m half way through the drama. Been fast […]
