Food for Thought...

So many things on my mind..


Nothing is on my mind?.....

Wedding prep. guest list. the details. the cakes. the ang pows. the songs. the photos. the attires. Though staying at my old place till the new house is ready. never-ending spring cleaning (clearing 28yrs of stuff mind you. or perhaps even longer considering some of the stuff were things kept by my mum and dad for the longest time). the painting. the buying of furniture (thank goodness done). but still have to shift and throw some furniture away to make way for the new and also buy mattresses. Work wise. Recruiting, Selling, Training.

Well, luckily work wise can tone down as the date draws nearer.. that's the beauty of the industry isn't it...

Saw this when I'm clearing my stuff recently..
Great Memories..
My 18th Birthday gift from my JC mates..
10 years ago..
Yes.. it has been a decade!!!

Did Tyler actually write on it as well??

All the jokes about getting married and all seemed such a distant future then..
And 10yrs on.. I AM getting married haha..

Looking at these messages..
Reminded me of the time when I was carefree..
Always the joker...
Perhaps with time.. Have been taking things seriously.. Too seriously some say..

Maybe time to loosen up haha...

Are You Being Served?

Clicked from Google Ad..
Think you should be able to see the ad around this post..

You should click it to take a look..
Government initiative in a new media platform!
Under the GEMS UP.. some improving service standards in S'pore movement (I think...)

They have some mystery shopper thingy..
By categories etc...

I remember reading one about the mystery shopper's experience with an Auntie..
Sometimes I do think Aunties though their English may not be as fantastic (but hey.. still lots better than some foreign staff).. they do their jobs with genuine care and concern..
what I'd call motherly love haha..

I'm impressed with the blog actually..
Non-of those force-it-down-your-throat kind of propaganda...

And you can complain about your bad experience too =)

Halloween Horrors!

As mentioned in the previous entry, Mich got some free tickets to Night Safari..
Frankly was only half looking forward to it.. (the half only because it's free!)
Thought it will be another night of looking at animals at a ulu place with not many people..
And wondering how good a standard can people who look after animals put up to scare people..

How wrong was I..

Look at the crowd!

Luckily we didn't have to queue for the tickets..

And the staff were really really good..
So into their characters.. They did not pull back even with kids who were there...

Yes Mistress..

One of the best...

Wait.. I know First Aid!

Two parts to the night..
There's the trail.. as well as tram ride...
$22 for admission only...
$35 for admission + Train of terror..
Check out the official website here..
If you are going.. definitely take the Train of terror as well.. That's where the fun is..



For someone who doesn't like to spend much..
I do think $35 is worth it...

Not like they forced me to say it...
*Ok I will say it's worth it.. Just don't kill me...*

but coz I'm part of them.....

Me the Specky...

Was in JB when I came across this...

Initially.. tried it for a laugh.. but after a while.. "eh.. like ok leh...".. haha..
Of course the price helped..
It's RM$87 with lenses.. that's like SGD$36!

Other than price.. the other very practical reason...

<<<<<<< the rubber thingy that's on most specs.. Always found it quite gross when algae forms (though i know it can be changed)..
With this specs.. I shouldn't be facing that problem anymore..

A even better reason?!...
I don't even have to style my hair before I leave..
Goes soooooo well with the cock image...

More pics with me the specky...
(nicer looking ones... I think..)

I Love Ginseng Tea!

 Finally.. a post that has something to do with the blog tittle..

When I got back to office today..
The sight that greeted me...

Another surprise from my wifey..

Specially delivered Ginseng Tea.. from the not so mysterious and subtle..

I . A . Y . W
I Am Your Wife

Simple sentence "Drink it up baby!"
But the message of LOVE was delivered more than the instruction!..

Been busy clearing and packing my stuff to make space for Mich when she moves in..
As we are clearing.. It's amazing how much rubbish I've accumulated over the years...
At the same time.. It does bring back lots of memories...

Came across this article that I kept for more than a decade!
One of my favorite band back in the days of my guitar strumming days..
listening to the music what most would categorize as.. kao peh kao bu...


I can never get sick of their debut album.. frog storm..
even after all these years....

--Ginseng Tonic Maker-- That explains why my hearing isn't soooo good haha...
