A bit 4 d earth..

Oh wow!! Everyone really did do their part for Earth Day! Was a bit surprised that about 90% of the condos around us had their lights turned off. The picture above was taken from the balcony of my condo. And the line of light u see there in the middle, is the corridor lights which the condo management probably needed to keep open.

We stayed a while inside, then decided to take a stroll outside, to enjoy the scenery at night and to kill some time before the hour was over. Well, I guess its nice to know that people still stick together when the need arises and we do care about our good earth...

I guess the thing about friends is that we know distance or time is never of importance. That we will still be as close as the last time we met, even after years of not seeing each other. That we know that life may not permit the company, but we will always have them at heart.

If u haven't seen or heard from a friend for ages, but when u do, u feel as though that person had never been away, then u'd have a true friend which will outlast even the ages. - Exerpt from the preachings of Phenom

What we were told not to do as kids...

Went for grocery shopping while getting breakfast this morning. Receipt came up to about $60+ and almost half the amount was spent on assortments of snacks and junk food! Haha.. Think I really need to grow up and stop with d junk food.


Saw a couple of Kon plushes...

Wonder if they made any for Ririn, Cloud and Nova..

Point to ponder..

Happiness is as a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

Short story... totally 100% fictional..

Disclaimer: This article is strictly fictional and written with no inference to anyone or anything alive. If it resembles you, its definitely a coincidence.

In jungle x, there lived an elephant. This elephant, unlike others, really had an editic memory. He loved bambis and never forgot a thing. After being in the jungle for a while, he became the elephant king.

One fine day, some monkeys enter the elephant's jungle. Being monkeys, they inherently exhibited monkey characteristics. One monkey moved from branch to branch. One monkey swing too hard and hurt his back. One monkey, the coolest one, went to the stream often, to feed on coffee beans. There were tons of other monkeys, like the incredible bungalow throwing monkey, the cheapo twistie loving monkey, the big shot stopping monkey, the watery eyed monkey etc. All in all, they had a good time in the jungle, not knowing that the jungle belonged to the elephant king.

In no time, the elephant king notices the monkeys. He didn't have an inherent liking of this species, as his jungle consisted of elite crocodiles, hyenas and hippos. Seeing that the monkeys portrayed a fun bunch to the rest of the jungle, the elephant king decided that some monkeys should be rewarded to show his graciousness. However, it was difficult to reward them substantially, as those within his circle of power might rebel. So, the elephant king decreed that a few monkeys should be given a gift, one that is hidden inside a banana peel.

The monkeys heard of the generosity of the elephant king and rejoiced silently. "Well this jungle isn't all too bad... don't u think?" said one monkey. "Maybe there are other jungles?" said the other. A third monkey appeared and said, "This jungle sucks. Some snake just coiled around my tree".

After a while, some gorillas appeared and carried two monkeys to the castle. In the castle, the monkeys were each given a banana peel with something inside. The first one said, "I think its a gold bar". The second one said,"It's light. Maybe its a diamond jewel". And they were piqued with curiosity. The elephant king appeared and was really happy that he had given them gifts. He hurriedly requested that the monkeys open the gifts. Slowly, the two monkeys opened their gift. The crowd of monkeys jumped around and tried to catch a glimpse of whats inside. "Is it a diamond? a gold bar? US dollars?" The crowd gasped as the gift was opened. One kid from the crowd shouted,
"OMG!! It's a !!!"

Detective Galileo..

Spent the whole day watching this.. already at episode 5/10..

Point to ponder..

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. - Henri Nouwen

Born loser..again

I was going down to B1 from level 4 using the office lift.

I got in, pressed B1 and waited for the lift door to close. It closed, then opened again, and I was still at level 4.

I pressed the close door button once more. Again, it closed, then opened, and I was still at level 4.

I pressed the close door button again. And again, it closed, then opened, and I was still at level 4.

I got out of the lift and cursed $^%^$#%$^&%$.

It closed. And went straight down to B1.


Parked the car. Then detoured to get an umbrella as it was starting to rain. Went to the back of a black car and tried to open the boot, but could not find a keyhole at the usual place of the car boot. Looked again, and realised that I was standing behind a BMW...last time I remember, I drove a Vios, not a BM!...

Another Afternoon..

Had to get back home in the afternoon, cos the building maintenance was coming over to fix a wall crack and a waterless tap. So, after having hotdogs and icecream at Ikea, we headed home to watch "Don't mess with the Zohan" courtesy of a friend from the office. After that, it became pretty bored, and I ended up logging on to yahoo answers to see if I can get to level 2. No its not a facebook application. You just help others answer questions that they enquire.

It's surprising what people ask, and the genre I chose on a weekend was of course (NOOO not engineering or construction or safety) .....anime. Some questions are rather amusing and you'd be surprised what people ask on the net.

Some questions were like:
1. How did Sasuke Uchiha get so fast?
During the Chunin exam, Sasuke got fast enough to match Lee's speed without weights. How is this possible during one month, considering Sharingan cannot copy speed, as it's different than jutsus or taijutsu -- you can't COPY speed.
2. Which episode did kakashi try to teach naruto chidori?
3. Teen titans has been canceled for like ever but i don't get the last episode when Beast Boy tries to make Terra remember him what happens after that i don't get it also i know they might make an un animated movie of it but will the actual show ever return thanks.
4. Where's Sasuke Uchiha actually??? Can anyone tell me...

Best part was that I could answer them. Man, I have to start getting a life!!!

A minute away..

I got into the lift after work. Was feeling a little tired and lethargic. This guy with a green shirt and an extremely bubbly look came into the lift and saw a solemn face in the lift. The lift moved down and I pressed the wrong floor. I had to walk up to the next level. It took me another 1 minute or so to get to B1. I entered the car and drove out of the carpark. Just as I exit the carpark, I saw a blue car at 90 degrees blocking the whole road. Another car with the front busted, was still at the small storage lane. Ironically, as I looked on, I saw the same green shirt guy I met at the lift standing at the blue car holding his handphone. This time, he looked rather worried. Wasn't really in the mood to help, so I moved on to the next lane and drove off. Guess I should count my blessings. If I had not been tired and lethargic, I might've been involved in the accident!! Ironic isn't it?

Waaa piang!!

Was driving along Rochor Rd in the morning when I saw this. I thought "phew, lucky I'm not driving behind that thing"...The 1m by 1m concrete blocks are just sitting on top of that thing with 0 restraints. If it falls, there goes your car! (or if you're unlucky, there goes u!!!)
And guess what.... In the evening, I end up behind the same idiotic truck with even more concrete blocks!!

Annual Natas Visit..

This year, we didn't even have to queue to get in... things are really slowing down i guess..
