24seven Year Eng Blogger Hat-py Party on 30 Dec 2009

I am very honored and happy for being invited to 24seven Year Eng Blogger Hat-py Party event!

I was all prepared to knock off at 5.30pm straight, to enjoy the party, but last minute things happened ! I was caught up at work till 6pm.(Event started at 7pm) So i had to take a cab to Singapore Art Museum.
The meter 'beeped' twice on the way there.Not enough cash, so had to pay with nets..
Want to guess the damage?



But anyway, this is not important. Haha!
I was still on time for the party, Yeah!

They had this band called: Black Diamond Ninjas who performed, and so coincidently, of of them was my reservist mate.Haha!
Here's a clip of them performing last night.



Personally i love such live performance !
If you like them too, join them at their Facebook, ok? =)

I met friends whom i talked to online, i met new friends, i had good food, i enjoyed their performance and activities.. It was nice!

Some photos to share..




From my iphone

Happy Birthday, En Qi ~ =)

My presents for her.

My formal celebration for Christmas 2009.

It started with a movie with my friend.
Alvin and The Chipmunks The Squeakquel we watched. I did not watch the first movie, but this second one made me want to go get that. 
It was funny, and cute, especially Theodore! =)



Go watch it!

It was dinner at Jurong Point, Bakerzin, woooo~ the cheesecake!

After this we headed over to Safra K-box, for singing.
Wonder if you know, singing can relieve stress off a person ? Check this article out! =)

We exchanged our presents in the room.

Cheers, my dear friends!
Merry Christmas and Happy 2010! =D

Merry Christmas !

It's Christmas today! Merry Christmas everyone! =)
Did not party this year, as worked late on Christmas Eve, and got home 10pm, with a tired body.

So sorry to my friends, i did not make it to the party. =(

* * * * * * * *
Rested at home, the whole day.

It was not easy to have all the family members together at home nowadays, with everyone working, and busy with their own things.
A lucky thing today: Parents, Grandma, Brother and me, were all at home! Since it's Christmas, we decided to have a special dinner.

We ordered Pizza! =)


















Delicious looking and, ya.. Yummy!  =)

A music list my friend, Aldrina, did.
Very Christmas feeling! =)


 

Merry Christmas, everyone! =)

Poll Result : Music or not on Blogs ?

After a week, 3 people voted. Haha! Better than none. =)
Results as shown. =)



















It seems people still like music to be played on Blogs.
But 1 of them did voted a 'No'.
Some of the reasons i gathered are that the reader is actually already blasting or listening to music on their computer and when they visited blogs, the blog's music was more to a nuisance than music to them.

Personally, i took them off mine and blog seems to load faster. =)
I also shifted and kinda 'renovated' it, will still be fine-tuning it. (Not an expert, am still learning..)

This week is a long week, with me being involved in organizing the company's Christmas buffet lunch and dinner, predicted i have to work till late(I predict 9pm or later..) on 24th, which is Christmas Eve! While some companies are having half day or off day, I have to work. Zzzz..
Might have to forgo the Christmas party my friends invited me to.. got to see the situation on Thursday.

So is your company having half day or off day on Christmas Eve and last day of the year?
Just for info, I have to work full day. =[

In case i be too busy to post this week, hereby wishing my readers, my friends, and all those who knows me a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! =)

My first Christmas Gift from friend for 2009

Another Christmas gift from my friend, last night.
It was chocolates in 'Seashell' Shapes.
Such a sweet girl ! =)











Have you receive yours ? =)

* * * * * * * *

Recently i feel work had been hectic and really had totally drained me out.
Been working here for five years, but things changed a lot this year.
People volunteering to leave the company, people resigning, management style changing...

I can't seem to find the motivation i got previously..

I seem to be dragging myself to work everyday. 
The little voice that tells me : '' Hong Wei, its a good day, today!"
Where did you go to ?


Please come back soon!

Weekends

Hi all! How's your weekends? =) I went to the BookFest at Suntec City on Saturday. And i did not know Landy Wen, 溫嵐 was there for an autograph session too! I saw her live some year back in HMV, Orchard. That time she was nicely tanned, and giving out a very healthy sporty girl look. Yesterday, she had this super red short hair.. In case you don't know who she is.. However, personally i like her red short hair, and her singing. =) After this, i went to have a lonely walk around Suntec.. The area around Carrefour was having a Wii event. It can measure the BMI of you, got some Yoga steps to learn, got cycling game, got basketball game, the list goes on... So do you own a Wii ? =) * * * * * * * * I did some changes to my blog arrangement, will still be improving it. Did a poll at the side. It will be there for a week starting today. Topic being : "Do you like music to be played on Blogs ?" I would like to know from my readers. Let me know, ok ? Thank you! =)

Exams are over! Got money to buy iphone, but queues are everywhere..

I took my last exams for the course, which took me 1.5 years. However i still don't think i can make it for this paper, but what's done already is over, shall not think of it. The results will only be known in February 2010. And till then, i need to find things to keep myself occupied. Good luck! Hong Wei~ * * * * * * * * Regards to previous post , i went to M1 shop, Westmall just now, at about 7.45pm. When i reached, i see the whole shop full of people, went forward, wanting to tell them i reserved an iphone. And to my horror, the queue was actually out of the shop, stretching the whole covered linkway of the mall... about 30 people and still queuing.. "But i reserved already.." i told the M1 staff... "Sorry, you still have to queue..." was the answer.. What for i reserve for one in the first place? -__-" Luckily, they are not the only one selling iphone now. Bleh! =P * * * * * * * * I will post the ''post-exams dinner'' tomorrow. Stay tuned! =)

iPhone available to StarHub, M1 customers from Wednesday

The news is out, after looking at friends owning them and me playing and using it. =) A lot of you may already been using it.. but still its a new toy for me! SINGAPORE: StarHub will make available the iPhone to its subscribers from Wednesday. It will also offer a range of new 3G mobile plans to meet the different needs of iPhone customers for voice, SMS and data usage. iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G models will be available for free on the 3G SmartSurf Unlimited plan with a two-year contract. Altogether, four new 3G SmartSurf price plans will be introduced. Local data usage charges are capped at S$48 monthly. Customers who have pre-registered for the iPhone will be given priority. Hours after StarHub revealed plans to rollout its iPhones, M1 announced it will do the same this Wednesday.There will be four new iPhone plans offered by M1. M1 said its iPhone customers will also enjoy call benefits of unlimited free calls to three M1 numbers, per second billing and discounts of up to 35 per cent on subscription fees with the multi-line saver programme. Local data usage charges are capped at S$36.38, slightly below StarHub's rates. In July, SingTel was the first operator to launch the new iPhone 3GS. - CNA/yb * * * * * * * * And an article from Hardwarezone, rounding up of all the plans.. And it has been set in stone. All three telcos have showed their hands for the iPhone price plans. For the moment, M1 is leading the pack, with the following advantages: 1. 10GB of data usage 2. Data cap of up to $36.38 3. Lowest price plan for iPhones at $36 (Compared to Starhub's $38 and SingTel's $39 based on the lowest-end plan) For now, here's a quick round-up of the price plans. Update: We just received a statement from a SingTel spokesperson that they will announce new revised iFlexi plans within the next few days, which will be extended to new and existing iFlexi customers. Update: StarHub has just revised their price plans, bundling 12GB of data on the first three price plans instead of the original 1GB.

Shall share this happy occasions with you all like how he shared with us... =) Best wishes to Jimmy & Relus, and big Hello to Yen Jing! And good job Simon! =) Can you feel the sweetness and happiness after watching it? =) * * * * * * * * I should really give myself a big pat, for walking 10km (with heavy load) last Friday, but it was body aches that became my rewards. Haha!! It was super intense studying over the weekends. Why? To clear out the memories of last paper, and to "upload" the information needed for the Thursday paper. Well, this cheered me up.. Back to my notes...

Cleared a paper today!

Hi all, i took my first paper today! It was alright, but brain was blank towards the end of the paper. What's done, can't be undone, just hope for the best! One more paper next week, on the 10th. Go Hong Wei ! =) * * * * * * * * Some updates from last week. 28 Nov 2009. A happy occasion. My dear friend, and great pal, Kenneth, who served the Army with me got married! It was a great gathering for the Army pal group. It was fun, fun and more fun! =) * * * * * * * * Remember the Nepalese orphans (Link at the side of my blog) ? My friend already flew over and they managed pay off the school fees and even got a bank account in Nepal for the children as reserve! I am so happy to hear this..! And best of all, she mailed me a photo of the kids, and they even wrote 'Thank You' at the back of it. So touched! Shall be taking note of their status, and will continue to help if they need it. Kindness, like a boomerang, always returns. ~Author Unknown Nice weekends to all! =)

At least the weekend was not much wasted. * * * * * * * * And Dear Arsenal team, What happened?! You lost 1 : 0 to Sunderland last night...

Thought of the day: Life is short, enjoy everyday.

Hi all! Hows the weekends going ? =) Was still on medications, so my body was still on the sleepy side. I slept from 8pm all the way till today 8am. 12 hours sleep! Weee! *mouth opened* =D And so i woke up, 8am, washed up, and did some studying (sure anot?), as i was rewriting my notes, and revising, i heard drums and trumpets playing. It was a funeral of a neighbour, a lady. (which i think i met before.. but sorry i can't remember her..) From what i heard from mum, she was a divorcee, who stays with three other ladies who she rented her rooms to. What happened to her was that she fell in bathroom, knock onto something and thinking she was alright, she went to bed and sleep, and never wakes up! Sad !! It was so emotional hearing the drums and trumpets and the songs they were playing made me even more sad. Therefore i decided to stop for a while and many thoughts start coming into my head. We work hard for the money, we study hard to get that qualifications, and then suddenly we just passed away like that? Shouldn't we slow down our pace to look at things and people around us? Life is too short not to make the best and the most of everything that comes your way everyday. (Sasha Azevedo) Maybe this songs can make me and all of us feel better.

欢喜就好

MC today

Its a cold night.. *ar choo* on Twitpic The doctor declared me as having high fever, with 38.4 degrees. (Come to think of it, i can still work the day and see the doctor after i knock off..) With the blocked nose, i sounded like Barry White ! And so i am at home today, resting, and do a bit of revision for the upcoming exams. The rest of the time, shall be rest. * * * * * * * * Thank you to Belinda, i get to know this World Food Programme. We got food to eat, we got clothes to wear. How about people from other countries like Africa? We are lucky that we do not have major disasters in Singapore. Remember earthquake in Indonesia? The typhoons that devastated the Philippines? The most basic thing for them is Food. When was the last time you went hungry? Can you recall the feeling of the stomach shouting"please feed me~" ? I donated a small sum, but with the amount i donated, i hope it can help as many people as possible. Do help, by donating or please help to spread the words. Fight world hunger

Sat outing with mum

Sat was spend going out with mum. I accompanied her to visit her God Ma, who had been taking care of her when she was young. Some tears would automatically flow everytime i visit her. There she was lying in bed, so thin(as she only survive on milk), and what she could do was only stare at us. Mum keep talking to her, all she could do was stare at us. I can still remember she was such a nice lady when we visit her family at my younger days. She makes milo, brings out all the biscuits for us... just so nice! And after a fall, she can only stare at us. Something grateful : she still can recognize us. I spotted some tears at the side of her eyes. Honestly i hope she can get well again, but... chances are so slim. Life is just so fragile. Do remember to treasure everyone around you. * * * * * * * * I am looking for khakis to watch '2012' next week. Anyday other than Wed. Anyone interested?

Shark's Fins

Shark's Fins. We all know this. A very normal dish you are being served, and craving for them to be served during a wedding dinner, or company dinner and dance. Honestly i am guilty of eating them too ! Know how they get shark fins? They cut down the fins and throw the poor sharks back into the water. How cruel ?!?? Take a look at this video. I hope the ban on shark finning in UK waters is getting effective... Still eat shark fin soup ? Up to you.
