My boss is visiting a client in China so we’ve been thinking about what sort of gift they might like. A colleague said one of the clients asked for Tiger balm before. My boss has also bought bak kwa on another occasion. Following brain storming session, we came up with panda cake, pineapple tarts, kaya […]

“By Return”

It kind of bugs me when I see people write “please reply by return” in e-mails.  Do people actually think about whether what they write makes sense?  Or do they just write things which they think are official sounding? I suspect many use this phrase because they may have seen similar language on business letters […]

It’s really damn frustrating how Facebook keeps changing their privacy settings.  In the past, I disabled the option of letting friends check me into places/ locations.  But the farked up FB now allows it automatically & I cannot remove this option.  What’s the point of allowing me to set a certain privacy setting only to […]

Happy 33rd Birthday to me.

Mr Gentleman, Where Art Thou?

A friend remarked this morning that the men in Singapore are so ungracious (and ungentlemanly, if i may add). While i haven’t travelled enough to fairly comment if this is a global phenomenon, i have noted that men are generally not very gentlemanly in Singapore. Disagree? Let’s see… When entering a lift, how many men […]

I Hate Dishonest Merchants!

Really damn angry during dinner just now. Had yong tau fu at the NTUC operated, Foodfare food court at Simei. I wasn’t hungry so i took the minimum 6 pieces of yong tau fu. The PRC staff shortchanged me and had the audacity to insist i took 7 pieces. My mental sums is very poor […]


Not sure if there’s any girl who will reject TLC, especially when sick. Just that I’m not used to asking for it. 我是死都会撑下去的那种。
