I really don't know what we were doing today during practical today in the anaylsis lab..
It suddenly seemed so alien to me... LC-MS... cheemonology is u ask me...
perhaps.. maybe the unofficial topic of the day was... where to go for class outing on Friday?
Oh, another of our classmate withdrew from the course today... its so sad that, even though we are already in the second semster... there are still 'casualties' around..
Anyway... the practical ended so late... by the time i reached home.. already 10.15pm... another tiring day at school....

That's the power of the media for you!
It's amazing how our media like to feature some stories, remember, the last time someone committed sucide by jumping onto the MRT tracks, donations started flowing in... so this time round, I wonder if its another publicity scam by that China scholar!!
Can you imagine a China scholar doing that?
Another powerful aspect of the media:
The price of flour rising... when I was at Maxwell Road market earlier today to buy some buns from Bread Pitt... the price of the bread had gone up.. from $2 for 3 pieces to $3 for 4 pieces! Though, it might seem neglible.. but I find it strange that the standard of living or rather prices of goods defy the law of gravity: What goes up... never comes down...

Took a train to visit JAM to collect my stuff...
It's really nice.. their craftmanship is really good!!!
I took a picture of Chinatown from their shop... really like the nightlife shot of it.. it's quite relaxing when you just sit and look all the crowd passing by on a Sunday evening!!!
We headed down to Maxwell Road market to eat.. I tried this Curry Chicken noodle.. absolutely yummy!
What a sinful treat for a Sunday night!

.. its rather small.. their entire shop front is located at Block 352 Clementi Ave 2. It occupies 3 units.. 2 joint and the other one stand alone.. I was disappointed by the lack of variety of goods on display..
Think it would have to work much harder to be able to be on par with the other big players in Clementi..

this is real touching…
"Hey, wake up! wake up!"
A dog was knocked down by a car and died on the middle of the road. Later, another dog is
seen beside the corpse of the dog, he tried to wake his friend up using his leg.
"Let's move to the safer side of the road...i will move you to the safer side!"
When his attempts to wake his friend failed, he tried to push his friend to the side of the
road. But the weight of his friend was proven too heavy for him.
"Anyone help, tell me what to do."
Though the traffic is busy and dangerous, he just will not go away from his friend. Just stand beside his friend howling and crying.
A lot of people saw this incident and feel very touched. Even a dog can show his loyalty and love to his friend.
Should there be a limit to how much you should do to help your friend? To an extent when your friend does not even know how far the distance you have gone for him? Loyalty? Friendship? Is it supposed to be mutual.. or a mere one way traffic?

scary thoughts eh??? Why don't you try it too?
How evil are you?
Anyway... had the ISO 9000 open book test today... seems pretty easy... hopefully I can score on it and did not choose the wrong clause....
Good bye ISO 9000 Clauses... :P

Singapore Airlines - A great way to fly.....
Singapore Bus Service - A great way to die????
I was walking to Clementi Central from home in the evening.
And when i was at a traffic light near the interchange, I noticed that this SBS bus driver had stopped his bus in the middle of the road and was arguing with a van driver, exchanging a myriad of hand gestures to each other. Utterly rude, I must say that Singaporean drivers are extremely discourtoues.
To make things worse, when I was crossing the zebra crossing.. that bus driver failed to stop at the zebra crossing to give way to pedestrians!!!!
He nearly knocked me... thank god i noted his license number SBS Bus Service 7, Registration plate SBS 641B. Time occured at 1942 hrs today!!!
I think I am going to lodge a complaint for such an errant bus driver!!!

Till I met John and Mike, owner of JAM Creations . They have used their imagination and breathed in lots of live into new and creative designs.
They wire wrapped this nummite stone for me into something interesting : a pendant... guess the style brought out the beauty of the stone.. with its natural gold tones.
Do check out their main official site: BEAD WORKSHOP
Special thanks to Mike for completing it in such a short time.. all done within a day!
Zipped off to town in the afternoon to meet a client and to discuss the various sensory attributes and applications of my products.
Must say that it was quite a successful trip.
Hurried back to Woodlands later... and then back to school in the evening.. another day spent zipping from place to place!

The story line is very simple... but yet at the same time... it tells a story, which is often true that we take our loved ones around us for granted and only regret when its too late.
Even though, its suppposed to be advertisement for some Thai insurance company, but I still find it touching...

Was out having lunch at a nearby coffeeshop near my workplace and while I stood waiting upon ordering my mee hoon kuay, I saw flies dancing around the bowls that were placed on the store front! Some flies even landed into the open container of ikan bilis... how gross.. imagining having some added 'black beans' with your ikan bilis... simply turn off of the day!!!! Also, I realised that the side kitchen area of another store faces the entrance of a toilet!!!! argh... i wont be eating from these stores for some time!!
Going back home, I discovered that the Town Council was fumigating the rubbish chutes!!! Columns and columns of smoke rose... It was as though there was a forest fire nearby... and when I was going to school in the evening... there was a huge army of cockroaches... struggling.. some dead... some half alive.. some still crawling all over the floor... it was really a disgusting sight. I really cant understand why the Town Council does not arrange for a clean up session immediately after each fumigation.
All the dead roaches lying around only could bring about secondary hygiene problems.

Strange thing is that the micro organism that we were growing in the bio reactor took a super long time to grow. At the end of 100 over minutes, there was still little turbidity in the reactor, which indicated a low growth rate of the organisms...
If the micro organisms had Monday blues and were laggy in growth, what more could a Monday mean to us humans?

Setting - At a factory selling cakes
Scenario: Tour buses parks outside factory, auntie rushes into the shop and tells the owner that she has 3 buses coming and she is the leader of the tour. Before owner can say anything, she goes on to list what cakes she wants... blah blah...
I was like hello auntie... can you wake up your idea.. a box of cakes costs only $3.50.. but I think your integrity and character is worth far lesser...
Turn off of the day #2:
Setting- At a retail outlet
Scenario: Unfamilliar number flashes on my handphone when it rings.. I picked the call up and was greeted by some unfamilliar voice! Caller claimed to be looking for dynamic, people with vision to start some online business... and the best thing, he was recommended by a classmate of mine from basic diploma!
Hello, my number is a private thing!! Can you not go around spreading it.. its not 1900-call-ivan! Next time, must charge them rates like $1.00 / min block!!!

Actually, i cant really remember him.... he's actually the gynaecologist that helped to deliver me!!!
He actually remembers me... oh well.. not really me... but maybe my mum... it's nearly a quarter a century!!!!
ISO 9000 lesson today in school today was really such a chore.. I really had a hard time trying to keep myself awake during the lesson.. so much with all the clauses 6 - 7 in the ISO 9000 standards...
It's only the 3rd week of school... many more weeks to go!!! Must hang on in there...

I have been seeing weird and strange people recently..
Don't ask me why... But earlier today at work.. this Thai Chinese (as he told me) approached me outside my work place.. and started to talk to me.. about how poor thing he is.. whether it is true.. i wont know.. but he certainly spoke with a lot of hand gestures... of which i was taking strong precaution against.. I was reading some articles that there were some swindler out there, that are able to hypnotise one with a lot of hand gestures...
At lunch, I saw this weird old lady with sat at the coffee shop... she was drinking water out from her own bottles (2 of it) and was looking pretty fidgety...
Today's lab session was horrible!!! Sample preparation took so long.. and the worse thing was that setting for the gas chromatography was kinda wrong and we had to reinject the samples of blended vegetables to check for pesticide!!! argh!!! utter waste of time!

Me: "Not our fault... your lecture very dry mar..."
But I can't help it... its really really dry and boring.. especially after a hard and long day or work...
