Today, like a regular event, brother's girlfriend came over the house for lunch..
As i was rushing out to meet my friends, i went out straight after lunch.
While i was wearing my shoes, Grandma, sitting at her favourite spot of the sofa..
Suddenly said : "Ah Wei ah... Time to go find a girlfriend already..."
I was shocked, as this was first time she said this to me, so i only smiled back saying : "Yes, am trying hard.."
And, rushed out of the house.
She was not the only one in the family "hinting" me.. anyway.. (Mum, Uncles, Aunties..)
With another wedding dinner of a classmate on coming Monday, what Grandma said to me keep repeating in my mind.
Not that i din work hard, alright...
Many years back, i did bring a girlfriend home.. but broke up with her.
During Army days, there was another girlfriend, which she broke up with me..
Both relationship was less than a year.
Anyway, the both ex-girlfriends are doing good and got married, in which i am happy for them too. =)
And Fate stopped there. (Since year 2000? Lost count too...)
Let nature take its course, Hong Wei.
Some things, cannot rush one... Right?

Back in 2009, newspaper reported of a little girl, Charmaine, who has been diagnosed with neuroblastoma, being in the 4th stage and fighting hard.
There was some group and organizations, working hard to do fundraising for the little Charmaine and the mother, Cynthia.
Her medical expense, family expense..
I did donated some, too.
2 years battling with Cancer..
However it seems her condition got worse recently..
And on 21 Oct 2011, her blog came out a posting,
With the subject : Char is flying free...
14 July 2005 - 21 Oct 2011
She is pain free and she gave us her parting smile.
You fought well, little Charmaine.
Be strong, Mother Cynthia.

On the packaging, it wrote : It can work on areas with poor blood circulation, to relieve shoulder discomfort, fatigue and stress, etc..
I not sure if it works.. Since it was not expensive, ($2 from Daiso) so i bought it.
I heard of this before, but was not really convinced by it.. =x
Anyway decided to give it a try.
If it's good, i shall buy for mum, who always complain of the knees, and legs aching..
My dear readers, have you tried such Titanium Bracelets before?
Do share with me.. ok? =)

Today i knock off on time. However i took 1.5 hours to reach home, instead of the usual 45mins...
When i open the door..
Mama : Worked overtime today ah?
Me : Nope, i could not squeeze out of the MRT when the station reached.. so i send my colleagues home, took the train back from Marsiling..
Mama : Why din you say excuse me ?
Me: We were so packed in the train, Mama..
Mama : Wah, now train so packed meh??
Me : It is, Mama..
I think she forgot i showed her this, last night.
You don't need to squeeze, people push you into the train.
20 years ago, it was not like that one..

I finally watch the movie : Johnny English, Reborn, last evening.
I started laughing the moment i see Rowan Atkinson, i started laughing. HAHA!
Please go watch it, as it really very funny. =)
And owing Ms Sheila, a super belated birthday of more than a year, i decided to buy her dinner.
She suggested eating Sakae Teppanyaki, i was for it too, as i had not eaten it before. HAHA!
We were so hungry, and engrossed in catching up and forgot to take photos of the food.
I took one, with the chef "performing" in front of us.
It was my first time eating Teppanyaki, having the chef cooking in front of us, and it was like a magician performing magic.. I enjoy it, and the food. =)
Have you tried Teppanyaki before ?

Today, my Facebook and Twitter feeds are full of the news of Steve Job, passing away.
A day after the announcement of the iPhone 4S.
A sad news.

Someone said iPhone 4S, also meant "iPhone for Steve".. ?
R.I.P. and Thank You, Steve Jobs.
Last month, brother told me someone from Ministry of Manpower Singapore (MOM) called, about a survey.
Might be a one time survey, i am thinking.... (so be it.)
Yet, i am wrong!
Today someone called again, and the anxious parents, knowing it was a call from Government sector, panicked. With their limited English words, they asked the person to call later, when i get home from work.
Indeed, a guy called. At 9:30pm.
First thing i asked him : "So late you all still working ah??"
Anyway from the about 15 minutes phone conversation
To minimize the parents from being panicked, i requested the next month to call to my mobile phone.
Every month same questions.
Why made my parents panick.

Was at Jurong Point Shopping centre on Sunday afternoon with my friend.
We walked past NTUC fairprice, and saw a long queue.
Being the typical Kaypo Singaporean, we joined in the queue(Without knowing what it is for.)
A sweet young girl, passed us a piece of note, asking us to fill in our particulars and some wishes to our Team Singapore, for the 26th SEA Games live in Indonesia!
That's all we need to do!!
You get a chance to spin the wheel and win some souvenirs!!
This was what i wrote.
And what did i get for the wheel?
I got a scarf !!! And the paper fan was given to me by my friend. HAHA!!
Support Team Singapore !
Send your well wishes to them HERE, and stand a chance to win their "I Love Team Singapore" travel package for two to catch the 26th SEA Games live in Indonesia!
Good luck! =)
