It's not a wedding dinner....

I still have no idea... why people are always late for their dinner appointments..

It's not like that they do not know the VIP will be coming in at a fixed time slot and that it will be pretty rude to come in later then the VIP....

More so when our table is nearer in front to the stage....

I Knew it....

I just knew it had to be a scam when I got this SMS today....

Sounds too good to be true.....

How can the 3 rival telcos in Singapore ever have a joint promotion?

Had it replaced by the store.. but my appetite was ruined...

Peranakan Inspirations!

I felt like a tourist today...

Just brings back the good old memories of excursions during Primary school days...

Explored the Pernakan Museum at Armenian Street today... and I was really wowed by the culture and heritage of the Pernakan community!

Beautiful poreclain to intricate jewellery.. It was really a sight to behold as you can see from the numerous photographs here...

Nice 'kamcheng's (porcelain containers to hold spices and water)with interesting motiffs that is unique to the Peranakan culture:

Even the teapots are nice:
Even more porcelain containers, check them out:

Next, headed to Lau Pa Sat for satay.. and even more Peranakan stuff.. a road show for the Singapore Food Festival with Peranakan culture as its theme this year... with host Violet Oon!

Harry Potter heal my Porter..

It happened again....

Not the first time the zip of my Porter bag broke!
And when I called the outlet again, they gave me excuses like person in charge not around, zip maybe faulty, bag overload, etc etc...

It just makes me wonder why this is the only bag that gives me so many problems!

I wonder if they do any quality control on the zip heads! The metal alloy used seems to be so brittle and hollow.

Oh Harry Potter, I need a spell to do up my Porter International bag!

Can anyone please help Roger Foo?

Someone... please teach this SMRT staff how to draw a line..

Straits Time July 17, 2009

THE crime? Eating a sweet on board an MRT train.

The punishment? A $30 fine.

The offender 48-year-old housewife, Mdm Bibi Zaina Binti Mohamed attempts to justify her actions.

She said, 'I know it is not OK but I take it sometimes because I am giddy.'

Enforcement officer Roger Foo did not buy her explanation. 'If everyone were to say they have to take sweets because they are thirsty or giddy, where are we going to draw a line?' he rebukes.

I think that while getting enforcement officers to patrol the SMRT trains and its premises quite a good idea in nabbing offenders. There should obviously have been some form of guidelines for this officers!

I wonder in such a scenario where people with Diabetes mellitus, commonly referred to as diabetes, need to take a sweet to regulate their blood sugar levels (when they have low sugar levels) should not be considered an offence. Bear in mind that low sugar levels will not only cause giddiness, it can also lead to dizziness or light-headedness,sleepiness,confusion, difficulty in speaking, anxiety and even weakness.

Obviously SMRT has not thought about the consequences about such enforcement. Sad to say, it is almost discriminatory to diabetic patients under such scenarios!

Entrecard bought over..

I got an email from Entrecard that they have been bought over by another company called Ziprunner!

Find it strange that this company that bought them over does not yield any results when I do a search on Google or Yahoo!Also I have heard from many other Entrecard users that they have had their Entrecard credits suspended or missing applications!

Well... What will be the fate of Entrecard, I wonder if people will stray from it..

Twitter False Alarm

I got an email this morning telling me that my Twitter account has been suspended due to violation of terms and conditions...
But strange thing is that, I am still able to access and post updates on it...

Whatever the case, I am not complaining... Twitter is indeed getting a little addictive..

Get in The Rooms with Facebook!

Remember some time back I was talking about In The Rooms ?

Okay, just a little quick recap, just in case, you have forgotten already!

In the Rooms is one of the top recovery sites on the web, which got its pretty catchy name because most of their addiction groups are anonymous. However, if you ran into a person you saw at group in public, you won't say "hey I saw you at our AA meeting". Instead, you would say you know them from "In The Rooms". Sounds cool, isn't it?

Well... there is even more good news now!

For web savvy people who are actively participating in social networking sites, like the highly popular Facebook, you can now add the “In The Rooms” Facebook App to your Facebook profile and then invite all your friends in recovery to share their time within your community. After you add your time, you can then proceed to add a box on your Facebook profile that shows how much time you have in recovery. The In The Rooms Facebook App will also allow you to add your time to the community, without publicly displaying a box on your profile, for those interested in protecting their anonymity, which is of course, in line with their objective!

Food Glorious Food...

It really has been some time since I last had so much fun.....

Great food:
sweet temptations....

.. and great shopping!!!!

Template Answers?

It took the National Environmental Agency, NEA, more then a month to get back to me after I sent them a complain after getting spoilt durian crepes from a manufacturer! And that was only after I sent an email to them asking if the matter has been resolved!

As usual, what seems to be a template answer was sent out... and the best thing is that they failed to answer my query if it was a contravene of the Sale of Food Act...

I really wonder why do we actually have Food Legislature in Singapore when its not even being adhered too!

Adam and Eve sighted in Bukit Timah!

Singaporeans getting more liberal and open minded?
Judging from the photos that appeared on STOMP about this couple making out in Bukit Timah:

I certainly think so...
Looks like we are having more 'Adam and Eve's here in Singapore.. just look at the number of past cases... Couple caught naked at Holland Village, Guys doing stuffs at HDB corridors...The list just goes on..
Sometimes, it just doesnt help when the new media is around to quickly aid in spreading the flames of seduction and lust...

Cheaper Cherries?

Just a couple of days back.. there was a newspaper article on how Singaporeans are taking fancy to exotic fruits and how these fruits have been much cheapers then before..

Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the prices of these Rainier cherries were slashed so much that they cost less then half of what they used to cost!

Not that I am complaining.. looking forward to more juicy deals!
