Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to go watch this movie.

Gathering with a few friends??
With your Girlfriend or Boyfriend, holding hands and doing the count down??
Hugging your Husband or Wife, and exchanging presents?
At home, watching tv?

Wherever you are, have fun and be safe.
May you have a Merry Christmas and All The Best in 2012!!

Wondering where i am?

Something to share

My friend on Facebook shared this image and i really like it the moment i saw it. 
Therefore i think it is nice to share with more friends. 


Little Budhha says: "Smile on, it's only illusion, then it's gone .."

"Smile on, it's only illusion, then it's gone .."

Whatever it is, bad things will pass.
Smile and keep moving on.

Weekends without TV.

I was away to my colleague's house in Malaysia on Friday night and was only home on the Saturday afternoon.

While waiting for the lift of my block, Mum, Brother and his girlfriend appeared.
A disaster had been revealed to me, on the spot.

My one and only TV set in the house is down !


Disastrous !

Because Grandma, will be bored. (Watching TV was her best companion and entertainment.)
The family will be much quieter, as we won't get to watch the Taiwan drama, together. (Insert Sad Face.)

Anyway, the new one will be coming in on Monday.

Early Christmas present for the house!!

However, the Samsung S II i am aiming is out of stock! I am still waiting for my Christmas present. =P

The coming two weeks might be super busy at work due to company Year End closing.
Wish me luck !

侯湘婷 Angel Hou

How many of you actually know who is 侯湘婷 ? =)

Many years back, during my army days, i was lucky to win a pair of tickets(went with my girlfriend of that time) to a mini concert of her and 江美琪.

Both sang beautifully that evening.

At least a good 10 years past.

Where has she gone to?
Do you know?? =)




作詞:姚謙 作曲:柯肇雷

她住進了你心裡面 我的愛無家可歸
舊情歌戀戀的餘味 斷續在多夢的夜
就這麼過了好久時間 為什麼還偷偷想念
情書和相片已蒙一層灰 怪我們任性斷了愛的機會

當我又為你流眼淚 若你也為歉意失眠
絕望也許是最美的體會 讓我們記得曾愛過誰

你的選擇也許是對 她才是你的依歸
曾屬於我們的一切 就讓你一筆作廢
就這麼過了好久時間 為什麼還偷偷想念
情書和相片已蒙一層灰 怪我們任性斷了愛的機會

當我又為你流眼淚 若你也為歉意失眠
絕望也許是最美的體會 讓我們記得曾愛過誰

這是我為你流的淚 當我們已漸行漸遠
我知道回憶是一種愚昧 這一生只容我笨一回

My Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2011 (4th Dec 2011)

Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2011, my final 10km run of Year 2011. 

Without much training, i faced the run and was honestly walking towards the last 3km of the run.
The left knee felt pain. (Too much beer and wine. Hee..)

Good job, i still managed to jog through the final 100 metres of the race!


The "Human Jam" started early this year. 


We had to go through this narrow pathway of the steel bridge to get to the starting point. (Time taken : estimated 30mins+)

My run started 8am instead of the scheduled 7:15am. 

By the way usually there are entertainments along the route to motivate runners but this year, be it sexy belly-dancers, cute little girls cheering.. i din really see much of them this year?

Whatever it is, I happened to see this dressed in red "Chun Li" at the start point, whom i greeted : ” 美女,早! “ (In English : Good morning,babe!)


Overall, a good run!
Rewarded myself with this. 


=)

Lastly, do your best, enjoy and dont push yourself too much! The news just now reported of a 21 years old man died after completing the half-marathon.

Be safe, enjoy!

BookFest 2011

After sleeping half an Saturday away, i headed out with my friends, to Suntec City for BookFest 2011
It was an event by Popular, therefore there were books, and also stationary being on sale.
Was there last year, already expected the crowd, but this time was there on a Mission

It was really crowded that baskets for us to put what we wanted to buy were all being used up. (WOW.)


Saw this GIANT eraser, but then later found out it was actually the outer box for the smaller pieces of eraser.
 


And also this robot (Sorry i dont know what is this...), it was being displayed at the area selling some robot toys..

And after an almost 3 hours walking around the halls.. and 1 hour queuing to do the payment... these was what i bought. 





To reward ourself, we had 擂茶 for dinner !!



And, what was the Mission i was talking about ?

It was this !


To grab a copy of 那些年,我們一起追的女孩 (You Are the Apple of My Eye) !!
It was a great deal, going at SGD 5.90 ! (",)v

And while queuing to do the payment, i did catch a glimpse of the author : Giddens, 九把刀 who was there on stage.. =)

If you are interested, BookFest is from 18 to 27 Nov 2011.
At Suntec convention hall 601 - 603 !

戴佩妮 - 光著我的腳ㄚ子

It's been a busy week, feel so sleepy and tired, i slept half the Saturday away! =P

Penny Dai, one of my favourite singer and songwriter, has a new song !

Named, 光著我的腳ㄚ子, it also can be translated into "Baring My Feet". How comfortable it is to bear your feet and walk on the grass ? Come to think of it, nowadays do out kids or even ourself have more interaction with the nature?
Everyday, what we see are, concrete walls. =)

I feel her songs and her singing are really comfortable to listen to and you can just keep repeating it.

光著我的腳ㄚ子
詞曲:戴佩妮
導演:陳映之

我不煩 就算多了個牽絆
因為你給得很坦然
從不擔心 我要了怎麼還

我早已不管 就算別人喜歡看
因為我過得很自然
從不懷疑我要的很簡單

簡單就是覺得冷的時候求個溫暖
簡單就是寂寞孤單時候有人陪的晚餐
然後兩個人緩緩的掂起腳尖

我要光著我的腳丫子在街上漫舞
數著戀愛的樣子 一步又一步
左三圈的思路是右三圈的幸福
突然間我像小孩很容易滿足

我要踩著你的腳丫子盡情的跳舞
被你疼愛的樣子一幕又一幕
進一步是征服退一步是守護
你讓我看清楚 這旅途由你帶路

我早已不管 就算別人喜歡看
因為我過得很自然
從不懷疑我要的很簡單

簡單就是覺得冷的時候求個溫暖
簡單就是寂寞孤單時候有人陪的晚餐
然後兩個人緩緩的掂起腳尖

我要光著我的腳丫子在街上漫舞
數著戀愛的樣子 一步又一步
左三圈的思路是右三圈的幸福
突然間我像小孩很容易滿足

我要踩著你的腳丫子盡情的跳舞
被你疼愛的樣子一幕又一幕
進一步是征服退一步是守護
你讓我看清楚 這旅途~

我要光著我的腳丫子
我要光著我的腳丫子
我要光著我的腳丫子



Enjoy !

Taiwan Pineapple Shortcake in Singapore

Have you even eaten 鳳梨酥 or Pineapple Shortcakes from Taiwan?

They are nicely packed, a great gift for friends and relatives.
I also bought some while i visited Taiwan in July this year..

Today, while surfing around on Youtube, i came across this video.



It seems like Taiwan Pineapple Shortcakes are available in Singapore's Raffles Hotel !

My first thought : having a store at this place, the rental must be expensive and therefore the price of the items too.
Anyway, hope to see more Taiwan food here!

=)

那些年,我们一起追的女孩 after movie review.

After the post in September, i finally watched this movie today !


Reminded me of the school days..
Reminded us not to miss out the chance to confess to someone you like..

If time can go back in the movie, im hope the male character will confess to the female character, openly.. 

My favourite line :
我一直以為我自己是個超有自信的人,但那時我才發現,原來在喜歡的女孩面前,我是個膽小鬼。。。
(In English) "I always thought I was a super-confident person, but then I found, in front of the girl i like, I am a coward. . . "


Some other lines from the movie can be found HERE



A great movie.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.

What a nice date to remember... i guess alot of people are getting married today ?? =)

Where i learnt that from?

From : 周杰倫 - 水手怕水 !

Very seldom i can appreciate 周杰倫 songs (His fans must be cursing me.. =x) however i like this song leh ! HAHA !

Lyrics
大海真可怕 叫我水手 Oh oh come on come on baby
美人魚勾引我這招 卑鄙
Oh喊我 水手 Oh oh come on come on honey
我喜歡你勝過Money

船艙它是我的家 大海是我噓噓的地方
我對海鮮會過敏 吃素已很久
想當那歌手 結果變成水手
Oh oh~ 怎麼有點東北腔No no~ 去到太遠的地方
人家Popeye最愛吃菠菜 我卻愛清粥小菜再來點海帶

鈴不鈴不鈴 鈴不鈴不鈴 鈴不鈴不鈴 鈴不鈴不鈴
我的鬧鐘怎麼叫不醒我
喝不喝不喝 喝不喝不喝 喝不喝不喝 喝不喝不喝
林老師在喝牛奶

叫我 水手 Oh oh come on come on baby
美人魚勾引我這招 卑鄙
Oh喊我 水手 Oh oh come on come on honey
我喜歡你勝過Money

這些海鮮捕吃可吃
知不可吃 捕吃可吃 知不可吃可
不吃不吃不吃克制不吃土司 跟我學一遍來
[B Box]

我去海產店買魚蝦來放生 去水族館把魚通通撈走
只有一種魚撈不走 姓大名叫白鯊 大白鯊
船長說為了節能減碳盡量用手劃 有空就去甲板吸收太陽能
抹抹防曬 等著美人魚上鉤 Go

鈴不鈴不鈴 鈴不鈴不鈴 鈴不鈴不鈴 鈴不鈴不鈴
我的鬧鐘怎麼叫不醒我
喝不喝不喝 喝不喝不喝 喝不喝不喝 喝不喝不喝
林老師在喝牛奶

叫我 水手 Oh oh come on come on baby
美人魚勾引我這招 卑鄙
Oh喊我 水手 Oh oh come on come on honey
我喜歡你勝過Money

噓 叫我 水手 Oh oh come on come on baby
美人魚勾引我這招 卑鄙
Oh喊我 水手 Oh oh come on come on honey
我喜歡你勝過Money

叫我 水手 Oh oh come on come on baby
美人魚勾引我這招 卑鄙 大白鯊 Oh 喊我水手
Oh oh come on come on honey
我喜歡你勝過Money



Cute or not? =P

It is that time again..

It is that time again..

What time, you might be wondering??

Christmas, of course!!! =D




Christmas was made all the more special by the mysterious visit of this big friendly old man in red who would leave a sack full of presents.

But then, Mr Santa Claus, Singapore got no chimmy for you to climb into, would you mind using the rubbish chute Main Door ? =P

If you are reading my blog, can i request for present?

2) Samsung Galaxy Nexus



Anyway, usually i would buy myself a Christmas present for myself, almost every year..
Two years ago, i got myself an iphone 3Gs, but it broke down after a year plus, due to me, partially. (Post Here)

Since my mobile contract expires December 2011, time to get myself a new phone.

What should i get?

Today Grandma reminded ....

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?

The brave little Charmaine.

Feisty Char needs bullets to fight!

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.

I not sure if it works.. Since it was not expensive, ($2 from Daiso) so i bought it.

I dont know what to say..

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.

Johnny Ang Mo, Reborn and Teppanyaki..

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.

However!


I took one, with the chef "performing" in front of us. 
HEE..

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 ?

R.I.P. Steve Jobs

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.


From Apple website, you can share your thoughts, memories, and condolences,by emailing to : rememberingsteve@apple.com



Steven Paul "Steve" Jobs (February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011)

Someone said iPhone 4S, also meant "iPhone for Steve".. ?

R.I.P. and Thank You, Steve Jobs.



The survey..

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 (and me teasing him), i realized the survey had to be done 6 months, and on monthly basis.

-_____-"

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.

Curiosity paid off..

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! =)

那些年,我們一起追的女孩。



This looks like a very nice movie, and from Taiwan!! =)
It reminded me of the secondary schooling time.

那些年,我們一起追的女孩。

I want to watch, leh..

我很醜可是我很溫柔 (I am ugly, but I am very gentle.)

You all still remember Shrek?



Remember how he saved Princess Fiona, and then them being together?



I came across this article on STOMP

This couple was being discussed on the internet.

"In a Chinese online forum, netizens slammed the girl for going out with the guy, calling them 'Beauty and the Beast'. They wonder why such a beautiful girl would go out with a guy who is below average looking.
"It's funny how we are so obsessed with looks, especially when it comes to dating -- that beautiful people should only go out with people who are aesthetically compatible with them."

"And in this guy's case, netizens also wonder if he's rich.
"Of course, she can't possibly be interested in him because he is simply a nice guy, can she?




Yes, i admit, the guy was not THAT handsome. However, from what i see, the couple was happy together. Although people will always associate the 帅哥配美女 (Handsome guy & Pretty girl) idea in them.. there are still people who are not so particular with the outlook of a person. 

Being a couple, they should be happy together, as the two of them might be there with each other as partner for the rest of their life!

Come on, people!
Stop gauging people, or couple by their outlooks.
Look at their characters, behaviours, and inner beauty.

Being ugly, or not that handsome is not end of the world.

Just be YOURSELF!

May this song motivate you, like how it did to me.

Dr Ong Chit Chung

This afternoon, television, Channel 8 showed a documentary showing Dr Ong Chit Chung, and his family.



In case you don't know about him, Dr Ong was a Member of Parliament for Jurong GRC, which is the place im staying. 

Quoted from an article from ST:
* * * * * * * *
Dr Ong, a five-term MP, was very diligent about his Meet-The-People sessions, said Mr Chan Wee Lee, a Jurong town council manager in charge of Bukit Batok since 2001. 

'He'd make sure he saw all the residents personally. He'd come around 8pm and go home around midnight,' said Mr Chan, 41.

Like the other grassroots leaders, he ticked off a list of projects Dr Ong had implemented for his constituents.

In 2001, he introduced free daily dinners for about 100 needy people.

He started a bursary scheme for about 200 to 300 students from lower-income families who did not qualify for Edusave bursaries. which give $150 to $400 to students with good grades from lower-income homes.

Last year, he had 10 plasma TV sets, each 43-inch wide, installed at senior citizen's corners.

* * * * * * * *

However he passed away peacefully at home on July 14, 2008.
He was 59 years old.
He contributed a lot in making Bukit Batok, the place i am staying now, so well maintained.
And came up with the idea of having a large screen projector whereby residents of this area can enjoy a movie night together, under the moonlight.

According to mum, during a house visiting session, he actually came into our house and talked to us, i had not much memories of this, but seeing him at a few events within the neighbourhood.. to me, he was a humble and helpful man.

This was further confirmed from the aunties and uncles whom Dr Ong helped when he was the MP. 

One mentioned he was very friendly.
The other said he was so helpful, and very "people-oriented"

Great man. 

And it has been 3 years, since you left this world. 

This is just a post to remind ourself :
Life is short, and unpredictable. Live everyday happily. 
=)

Finding Princess Froggy..

As we advance or get commercialized , many things and buildings changes. The environment changes too.
During our parent's generation, they can run around in farms, and going all around to catch fishes, spiders.Their hands and feet touches the nature almost everyday.

All they see are things of nature : the trees, the green grass, the nice blue skies.

Nowadays, it is tough to find place that can bring us nearer to nature.

Let me introduce you an interesting place.

It is called the Jurong Frog Farm. (Website)

Located at Lim Chu Kang area, it is the only frog breeder in Singapore and a member of the Kranji Countryside Association.It is an eye opener to those who have never seen thousands of frogs croaking and feeding at the same time.

They have guided tours which are filled with fun facts about the frog's characteristics, habitat, mating habits and conservation. The hands-on-the-frog session is literal- here is where you’ll get to touch the skin of the frog and wonder at its softness.

We only learn about frogs, of how they grow from a tadpole, to a frog. Now, at Jurong Frog Farm, you can actually get to touch them!! Hands on, hor!! =)

They are located at: 51 (PLOT56) Lim Chu Kang Lane 6 S(718864)

How to get there (By public transport)

If you are looking for places to visit over the weekends, or during school holidays, this can be a nice place!
Teachers, you can bring your kids here too!

I will be there again, soon to find my Princess Froggy by kissing one of the the many thousands of frogs in the farm. 

HAHA!

The sweet girl from Thailand..

My new colleagues are a group of people, who can talk about almost everything under the sun. At a lunch one day, they started telling me to get a Thailand girlfriend, since i am handling the Thailand account of the company..

And coincidently, while surfing Youtube, i came across this video, with a very sweet girl in the video..



I could not understand what she was singing... luckily some kind person actually translated it to chinese!

Lyrics
อยากจะถามสักคำ ถามจริงๆ ถามเธอคิดยังไงกับฉัน
想要問一個答案 認真的問 問你對我的想法
แค่เป็นเพื่อนคุยกัน หรือมีความพิเศษซ่อนไว้
只是當聊天的朋友 或是有藏著其它特別的
อยากจะรู้จริงๆ รู้ใจเธอ ขอ..ขอฉันรู้ได้ไหม
真的想知道 知道你心裡 請...請讓我知道可以嗎
สิ่งที่คิดในใจ คล้าย หรือ ต่างกับฉัน
心裡所想的事情 跟我想的接近或相反
ก็อยากจะถามเธอก่อน ไม่อยากให้ช้าไป
就想先問你 不想要讓它拖延更多
วอนช่วยตอบ เร็วๆได้ไหม
請快點回答可以嗎
คือ..ความรัก หรือว่าอะไร บอกได้ไหม..คนดี
是...愛情還是其它 好心人可以告訴我嗎
แค่อยากจะถามเธอก่อน ก่อนถลำใจ
只想在錯過之前問你
ก็เพราะไม่รู้ทำไม ใจฉันตอนนี้
都是因為不知道為什麼 我的心變這樣
เริ่มร้อนๆ หนาวๆทุกที เวลาที่เจอหน้าเธอ
開始忽熱忽冷 每當我遇見你的時候更多
‎****間奏****
แดดทอฝนก็จาง เมฆลอยมา ฟ้าก็พลันสดใส
陽光照 雨退去 雲飄過 天空就馬上晴朗
แต่ใจฉันทำไม ยังคงกระวนกระวายอย่างนี้
但為什麼我的心 還這樣的焦慮
หากเธอคิดตรงกัน รู้ใจกัน ฉันคงไม่รู้สึกแบบนี้
如果你跟我有相同的感覺 我就不會這樣焦慮
โลกคงสวยทันที เหมือนอย่างที่ใจต้องการ
這個世界馬上變的美麗 像我的心情一樣
ก็อยากจะถามเธอก่อน ไม่อยากให้ช้าไป
就想先問你 不想要讓它拖延
วอนช่วยตอบ เร็วๆได้ไหม
請快點回答可以嗎

The poor maid..

Last night, i was having dinner with my friends..
Suddenly we notice a girl standing beside the table of the table behind us.

It was the maid of a family.


She (The Arrowed) was standing beside the table, while the employer (The Circled) was sitting down and eating.

"How can they do that!!" Our whole table screamed.. and started commenting on it, while i took this picture..

And with all this talking, the guy did not ask the poor girl to sit, and eat together with the family.. he even asked her to clean up the table.. (By the way, we are at Sakae Sushi restaurant.) She was there, standing, and looking at the guy, eating..

Either he "act blur" and did not hear our loud comments, or he could not understand English. *winks*

I feel angry and sad seeing this situation. 


I don't have maid at home, and if i have, i will treat her like a human too.
We employ her to help out in the domestic chores, not as slaves!

And if i become maid someday, i don't want to be treated like this too.. can i?
=)
