Chinese philosophy...

Ah... this is really so true...

Came across upon in a forum.. quite true to a certain extent...

The irony of life~

As what my friend, ET2 would say... Confusion said:

沒 錢的時候,養豬;
有 錢的時候,養狗。
When without money, keep pigs;
When have money, keep dogs.

沒 錢的時候,在家裡吃野菜;
有 錢的時候,在酒店吃野菜。
When without money, eat wild vege at home ;
When have money, eat same wild vege in fine restaurant.

沒 錢的時候,在馬路上騎自行車;
有 錢的時候,在客廳裡騎自行車。
When without money, ride bicycle;
When have money, ride exercise machine.

沒 錢的時候,想 結婚;
有 錢的時候,想 離婚。
When without money, wish to get married;
When have money, wish to get divorced.

沒 錢的時候,老 婆兼秘書;
有 錢的時候,秘 書兼老婆。
When without money, wife cums secretary;
When have money, secretary cums wife.

沒 錢的時候,假 裝有錢;
有 錢的時候,假 裝沒錢。
When without money, act like rich man;
When with money, act like poor man.

人 啊, 都不講實話:
Man, O Man, never tells the truth:

說 股票是毒品,都在玩;
說 金錢是罪惡,都在撈;
Says share market is bad but keeps speculating;
Says money is evil but keeps accumulating.

說 美女是禍水,都想要;
說 高處不勝寒,都在爬;
Says women are trouble-makers but keeps desiring them;
Says high positions are lonely but keeps wanting them.

說 煙酒傷身體,就不戒;
說 天堂最美好,都不去!!!
Says smoking & drinking is bad but keeps partaking;
Says heaven is good but refused to go.

鄉 下早晨雞叫人,
城 裡晚 上人叫雞;
In the rural area, chicken calls man awake;
In the cities, man calls for chickens.

舊 社會戲子賣藝不賣身,
新 社會演員賣身不賣藝。
In the past, famous actresses will not sell their bodies;
Now, actresses will sell their bodies to become famous

人 生是什麼?
What is life about?

What a MAD day...

Truly a mad day for me...

Been seeing all kinds of weirdo today...

Early in the morning on the way to work, some weirdo driving a black Audi road hogging in front of me, and showing people all sorts of obscene gestures to road users... and this guy actually drove and parked into a reserved lot into Givaduan Singapore. Probably some top notch key personnel there to be able to drive an Audi... Is the work load at Givaduan Singapore so stressful that he has gotten a little cranky?

Secondly.. on the way home... in my neighbourhood area.. there was this lady that was quite nicely dressed... screaming and shouting at nothing.... which was so weird... one moment she was screaming.. the other moment she was laughing.. seemed like a scene from the Exorcist~

Thirdly, during dinner time at a coffee shop, I saw this weird looking lady... sitting down at a table during the peak dinner time, not ordering anything.... not even drinks.. and she was mumbling and smiling to dunno what....

Yikes.. all these strange people....

Anyway.. I had a close shave today... Being in a hurry, I did not realise that I left my car keys in a taxi. So when I called up Comfort Delgro.. they actually put me thru the lost and found department. As I did not take a copy of the receipt from the taxi driver before alighting, there was no way I could remember the license plate. But thank god for modern technology like GPS, the operator was able to trace who the driver was by just getting details from me like pick up point and alight point as well as cab fare amount. Needless to say, I managed to recover the key.


Modern technology.. Truly impressive.... especially when you really need it!

Let's just hope tomorrow will not be such a 'spectacular' day!

Poof... let the dust shake off...

Gosh... after a long hiatus from my blog...

Here I am finally having the time to blog......

Start off by sharing a song that I heard over the radio today... which reminded me of my JC schooling days...

Enjoy the great video...

Bear with me..

The updates and pictures of what happened during my hiatus will be here~

Am I getting lucky?

A beautiful view this morning....

Blooming airplants..

Not one...

But 6 different plants!

Enjoy little pleasures while running errands

Was in town today to run some errands.

Had to wait 2 hours for an express service for some printing service... and I chanced across this Lerk Thai bistro outlet located at POMO...

It has been some time since I had Thai food... so decided to go for it... Their special promotion of $1.90 for a set top up of tom yam soup and white rice to any main course was pretty attractive. I had their signature green curry chicken rice:

.. and of course to sweeten the meal up... the Thai Chendol dessert!
Finally went back to the shop to collect my items....

Quite a scene at the shop when I was back... The shop owner scolding the shop assistant, a mute lady probably in her 40s/40s. Right to the verge that the shop assistant was bursting in tears, over what to me just a little small defect on my item.

Well, I would really have kicked up a big fuss over that.. but the sight of the wailing shop assistant just tugged at my heart strings... and I decided to let the matter rest~
