So I had to rush all the way to get it, and when I passed it to the person, he did not even ask how much is it?
Looks like people are thinking that with their high up status, people , like me, would have to be at their beck and call.
Mr Koh, from AVA, came to class today to share his interesting perspectives with us, for once, it made this module come alive..... :p

Actually, thanks to Johnannes for passing me the discount card that entitles me for 15% discount at TCC. Surprisingly, the food served was pretty good, was told that it was a new menu, just recently planned. I had this beautifully roasted chicken with pasta served. The mild hints of olive oil complimented the dish very well!
Another thing that impressed me was the Ti-Rum-misu... utterly sinful... and also very creative in terms on visual display and design.
Ok, back to the point on my encounter with the taxi service in Singapore. Was fast approaching 10 oclock, so i decided to flag a cab back home. However, there was not a single available cab to be seen in sight, most had red 'on call' status.
Walked from Sunshine Plaza up to Selegie area.. then to Dhobby Ghaut and finally to Park Mall where I finally got through the taxi booking hotline and had to wait for some 7 minutes before my cab arrived!!!
Good or bad... I should have just called a cab at Sunshine Plaza instead... :(

Quite expensive for a 250ml, nearly $2.. but it claims that is is extremely pure and naturally rich in oxygen.
So having remembered what a friend once did for me when I was sick, buying a bottle of high end mineral water cos I deserved the best.... I decided to do the same for myself and bought it....
It tasted pretty nice and pure.. a quick check on the nutritional information panel revealed 0 nutrition: no calories, no mineral enrichment of any kind.
Actually, the process actually reminds me of distilled water or reversed osmosis water....
Then again, am i paying too much for something that seems over hyped? Arent all waters naturally oxygen rich to support life?

Is it due to the fact that many people use Nokia handphones????
or its due to higher frequencies of defective phones from Nokia?

Pretty interesting lecture today.. who talked about genetically modified food and animals... imagine... glow in the dark green mice...
If they can make humans with such glow in the dark functions... of course.. must include a vector switch so that we can switch on and off at our own will... no need for light sticks during army any more.. :p

Had dinner at this Food Street near Meridien Hotel... it's more an over hyped hawker centre that puts real true local food fare to shame..
Just look at this chicken chop and you will know why...
Anyway.. the theme for Christmas this year in Orchard Road seems to be blue fairy lights hanging down from trees and all.. just walking along the road fills me with all the festive cheer... I cant wait for Christmas to come!

When I saw this large Christmas tree at Causeway Point today during lunch, it brought some festive cheer to an otherwise routine and mundane day.
Really looking forward to making a Christmas wish list soon..
Anyway... it had been a long time since I had my fave Chicken Katsu Curry... looking at it in front of me just brought back memories...
The outlet manager gave me a call today and informed me that she will look into the matter... and she knows who I am..
Judging from the persistent 'weird orders' I given her... like fries without salt... iced milo without ice... it makes me wonder if that's the reason why she remember me....
haha.. anyway, she said that she apologized and will look into the matter....

I would like to bring to your kind attention an incident that happened to me on 15th November 2007 1825 hrs at X Singapore Polytechnic outlet.
I was in queue at your outlet behind a customer looking at the menu, while your staff was serving the current customer. A bunch of people came after that and also got in line, the line was not really straight, and as a result, I was not really in line with the crowd that came later.
The manager, who was dressed in a blue shirt, came up to me, and asked me if I was waiting for something or queuing for my order to be taken. When I told her that I was queuing for my order to be taken, she did not even bother to ask if I was in the queue earlier and told me to join the back of the queue.
After reading your companys profile about making your customers happy, I really wonder if there is the culture at Macdonald’s where the staff do not bother to observe and pay attention to the crowd that they are serving. I really wonder why there is only 1 counter open to handle such a crowd. There should be proper crowd control measures taken to handle such a crowd.
This unhappy experience has certainly changed my impression of X’s and I would think twice before I patronize X again.

I cant activate it to run at all to auto protect my system.. even when trying to update the virus definitions and patches...
I even tried to contact the help desk.. but have not gotten a reply since i emailed them some time back.. talk about good customer service!

I donated like some 1590 grains of rice!
Seriously speaking.. its kinda addictive!
The new store lacked the human traffic flow... but it had interesting things on its menu like soya curd tarts, soya pineapple tarts.... really wonder who will emerge as the winner..

'Private Number' flashed across my HP screen..
when i picked it up.. this familliar China Chinese accent.. saying something that I won something...
Pretending not to understand Chinese.. I queried her in an equally 'Angmoh' tone... and she immediately changed to this robotic sounding English tone... 'do you speak english"
Irritating China Scammers...
I just hung up after that..

Really wonder in future, will people still have confidence in our charitable organisations, especially after so many charity sagas...
All this incidents.. only going to make the true needy suffer...

Are they afraid that there's no space for them??
Was at Causwaypoint today for dinner.. and was taking the lift down to B3 carpark level. The lift stopped at level 1 and this whole bunch of people just came in. Thought that they were also going down.. but i was wrong, this bunch of people remained in the lift when I got off at B3.
This makes Singaporeans so ugly and ungracious.. depriving people who really need to go down to B3.... they should all go down to B18!

Cameras installed in the KPE tunnel have captured 3,378 vehicles travelling above the speed limit of 70 kilometres per hour since it was opened a week ago.
Now, Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) has barely been open for long.. and we are seeing fast returns...
A fine of $150 x 3400 in just 6 days... that would add up to 510 k.
Think uniquely Singapore.. welcome to Singapore's expressway!
First, had dinner with 2 of my classmates at 211 cafe! I really love the night ambience of the place. Ordered Fishermen Platter!!! The portion was pretty big... and the seafood was, most importantly, fresh!
We met the rest of the clique at Eski Bar!!! It was a literal chill out.. as the drinks were served in nearly an Artic setup! But the nice drinks they had really warmed one up... This Greygoose orange vodka with sprite was simply refreshing with its subtle citrus notes!
We chatted at Eski Bar till 11+ before heading to NYDC for deserts! Yea.. imagine eating a mudpie at like near mid night... the ultimate sin!!!!
Looks like my AFT classmates are pretty happening!!!! Cant wait for more gatherings!

amazing reply from SBS...
Please refer to your feedback received on 24 October 2007.
2 Our investigation revealed that between 1930hrs to 1952hrs, Service 7 SBS641B was berthed at the Clementi Interchange's parking bay. However, in your feedback, you indicated the incident time at 1942hrs. In view of this discrepancy, we are unable to proceed with our investigation.
3 However, if you have new information to provide us, we will be able to reinvestigate into the incident.
I am so flattered by this reply really...
