Stressed from school

I'm up to my neck in homework..
the work load is piling up..
and it doesnt help that there are people who are constantly in MIA mode from school..
and to make things worse.. my pratical group has had the highest dropout rate!!!!

Had a bad day...

Today just isnt really my day..

Got onto the bus on the way to school.. and I was standing near the defunct ticketing machines are.. the bus was already moving.. and i was carrying too much things.. and the bloody old uncle actually yelled at me to move back to the bus...

So damn rude!!!

Its very ironic that SBS transit starting a campagin that tells people that their bus drivers, or to put it nicely, bus captains have the right to work in a safe environment like everyone else... but then they do not realise how rude their bus captains are in the first place!!!

BOO BOO for SBS lar!

Singapore Bus Sucks!

Downtown...

I am just feeling a little sad today..

over the things that happened today..

somehow today seemed to have been a very bad day for me..

sigh...



When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go - downtown
When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I
know - downtown
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles,
forget all your cares
So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown - no finer place, for sure
Downtown - everything's waiting for
you

Don't hang around and let your problems surround you
There are
movie shows - downtown
Maybe you know some little places to go to
Where
they never close - downtown
Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova
You'll be dancing with him too before the night is over
Happy again

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles,
forget all your cares
So go downtown, where all the lights are bright
Downtown - waiting for you tonight
Downtown - you're gonna be all right
now

And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to
Guide them along

So maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget
all our cares
So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown -
don't wait a minute more
Downtown - everything's waiting for you

Downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown ...

Sigh.. I need my retail therapy...

The tooth saga in Singapore!

Trust the chinese to have a saying that " Ivory will never grow from a dog's mouth"



How apt especially when it comes to the recent saga that the so called scared Buddha tooth relic in Singapore might not even belong to that of a human!



While it is true that its the sincerity that matters when it comes to religion and worshipping.. but has religion, these days been given such an extreme make over, that it is barely recognisable to the founder?



Just imagine, churches made of pure titanium facades structures, church pastors with singer wives that fly overseas to give birth to their kid..



Mankind, i feel, is rapidly changing religion to fit into their empty souls.. and not let their empty souls fit into the religion itself... more and more people are into religion, not cause of faith, but rather, its cool to be in this religion... There are many pretty girls in this group.. my friend is in this group, so i must be there...



Does praying to a relic housed in some 420kg of gold boosts one esteem?



Seriously, I really think that buddhism is a way of life... why should fellowers be so indulgent into gold and the intricate, elaborate architecture and interior?

Uniquely Singapore really has uniquely strange versions of religions...

This Rabbit aint innocent enough

Welcome the innocent looking white rabbit candy into the world of China food scares after some reports on it containing levels of formaldehyde was found in it..


Just in case you din know what formaldehyde is...

Here's some info from wikipedia:

Formaldehyde is an intermediate in the oxidation (or combustion) of methane as
well as other carbon compounds. It can be found in the smoke from forest fires,
in automobile exhaust, and in tobacco smoke. In the atmosphere, formaldehyde is
produced by the action of sunlight and oxygen on atmospheric methane and other
hydrocarbons. It thus becomes part of smog pollution. Small amounts of
formaldehyde are produced as a metabolic byproduct in most organisms, including
humans.


Despite AVA issued a media release that checks on it has showed that the levels in it are still safe for human consumption as per WHO standards, what is formaldehyde doing in a confectionary producy when it has not even undergone smoking? Really curious

Dengue Alert!!!

With the recent dengue high alert in Singapore, I really wonder why not much emphasis is placed on clearing such pools of water... maybe the authorities like to push the ball from one agency to the other??




Just take a look at this pool of water, that i took a pic of today while on the way to school, that formed.. its been at the bus stop for days.. can even see water movement like there are organisms inside moving...

PERFECT breeding ground for mossies!!!

Finders = Keepers?

Was taking the bus back today when I spotted something wedged in between Bus Service 184 no. plate TIBS 854

anyone lost a nokia handphone? I cant really tell what model number it is cos I am not a fan of Nokia... oopz.. If its HP or Vertu, I would certainly be able to tell.. and of course the above equation for today's title would definitely hold true!! :p

Anyway... anyone that lost a Nokia phone on that bus service.. please contact TIBS bus service.. as its already with the Bus Captain (doesnt that sound more high class compared to Bus Driver?)

China Free Food, anyone???

Seems that there is a huge hooha going on in US regarding health products coming from China ..


Plans call for a "China-Free" sticker on products such as Food for Health's "9 a
Day-Plus" capsules, "Active Adults" whole food shakes and "Healthy Dog"
supplements. The company also will use "China-Free" in advertisements and
promotions.

The day you went away...

Phoenix.. the little bird that i saved some weeks back... flew away today.. back to the arms of mother nature where he came from...

I felt sad initially.. but ultimately... this was its decision.. between a good life with no worries of food and freedom, he chose the later... going back to nature proved that it had grew well from a little bird under my care for the past 2 weeks.. from a weak little baby to a bird capable of flying back to wild again..

somehow or rather, its the same in relationships, you cant expect someone to be with you forever, just because you like him.. it wouldnt be a relationship.. it would be ownership...

So i dedicate this song, The day you went away by M2M, to my little bird friend phoenix.. will miss him though..

Ooh ooh... uuhm...

Well I wonder,
could it be
When I was dreaming 'bout you baby
you were dreaming of me

Call me crazy,
call me blind
To still be suffering is stupid
after all of this time

Did I lose my love to someone better
And does she love you like I do
I do
you know I really really do

Well, hey, so much I need to say
Been lonely since the day
The day you went away

So sad, but true
For me there's only you
Been crying since the day
The day you went away

Oh whoa .... yeah... oh...ooh...

I remember date and time
September twenty-second,
Sunday twenty-five after nine
In the doorway
with your case

No longer shouting at each other
There were tears on our faces

And we were letting go of something special
Something we'll never have again
I know
I guess I really really know

But, hey so much I need to say
Been lonely since the day
The day you went away

So sad but true
For me there's only you
Been crying since the day
The day you went away

The day you went away
The day you went away

Oh whoa .... yeah oh

Did I lose my love to someone better
And does she love you like I do
I do
you know I really really do

Well, hey, so much I need to say
Been lonely since the day
The day you went away
So sad but true
For me there's only you

Been crying since the day
The day you went away

Why do we never know what we've got till it's gone
How could I carry on?
The day you went away

Cause I've been missing you so much I had to say
Been crying since the day
The day you went away
The day you went away
The day you went away
oh whoa .. yeah oh

Right here waiting...



I heard this song on the radio before going to work.. strangely... it reminded me of someone.. I dont really know how I should respond... to treasure.. or give up...
somehow or rather, I have tried really hard to forget... but the feeling keeps coming back...

I think all that I can do know is similar to the part of the lyrics in the song:

Wherever you go, whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes, or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you
I took for granted all the time that I throught would last somehow
I hear the laughter, I taste the tears, but I can't get near you now

Weird Street Names...

1st July..

1st July always seems to have some historical moment for us to remember?

10 years ago on this very day.. Hongkong was officially handed over back to China ruling.

And today... our GST has increased to 7%...

which explains why when I was in town earlier... there were more people window shopping then buying stuff.. which was significantly different from what was happening weeks before.. that's not forgetting that the GSS is still on!!!

Really wonder how much inflation has taken place already.. been seeing prices shoot by more then 2% over the last couple of weeks of items like cooked food, car park.. etc..

Will we hit 15% in 2015?
