Ah Lun renounced his bachelorhood – preface

The brothers!!

During Eddy’s wedding, we came up with a betting table about who would be the next one to get married.

Betting table: who would be the next one to get married (version 2006)

Just as anticipated, Ah Lun is the subsequent person to get spliced!

After a lapse of 1 year, there’s a need to revise the table a bit…

Tune in again in a day or two for the upcoming post about Lun’s wedding.


A disgrace to the athletes

I went play golf on Deepavali, and ended up with body
ache which lasted for few days…

The driving range is kinda special: it faces the lake!

Weekends-Part 2

20 Oct: The Buddha-jumping-over-the-wall hoax


My friend told me she had 3 complimentary tickets to a feast. I agreed to keep her in company because I was told that Buddha-jumping-over-the-wall dish would be served.


That evening, the 2 of us purposely starved ourselves before the dinner to free up some space in our stomachs for better absorption of delicacies.


But to our greatest disappointment, we saw this when we finally reached the hall….


NO dining tables loh!!!!!


Nevertheless, we still very much enjoyed the show after sneaking out to the nearest mamak and took our dinner.



The performers. Most of the time, the dancers managed to steal the limelight from the singers.


Weekends-Part 1

Nowadays I can only access the internet during lunch time, and I’ve got a backlog of blogs to be written about!



28 Oct: I’m supremely overweight


A friend/future colleague of mine is 1 of the finalists of 8tv’s “I Wanna be a Model 2” contest. Joseph, Fan and I were invited to attend the live grand finale.


Grand finale LIVE! 


The so-called supporters…


The catwalk.


BIG thighs! 


I was actually snorting at the big thighs of one of the female finalists, before I flipped to this page of the complimentary magazine:-



Even though she’s with her big thighs, BUT with the height of 170 cm, she weighs only 52.5 kg for god’s sake!!!!!


Siao! I’m 7 cm shorter, BUT I’m 2.5 kg heavier!!!!  I’m so desperate to lose weight now!


Balderdash of the day:

I think the most effective method to damp down the infatuation you have towards your crush would be befriending him! Most often than not, you will find he’s not that likeable after all. What say you?

I spot you, creativity!

Inside the glass bottle…

“I want to walk tall, believe in myself, have the courage to ask for what I want and need, and live a life that mattered. I want to wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and know that I am loved and that I belonged. I am desperate to feel worthy and I am hungry for the opportunity to live my fullest potential.” - modified from "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers" - Debbie Ford

Under the apple tree…

"If you are not spending all of your waking life in discontent, worry, anxiety, depression, despair, or consumed by other negative states; if you are able to enjoy simple things like listening to the sound of the rain or the wind; if you can see the beauty of clouds moving across the sky or be alone at times without feeling lonely or needing the mental stimulus of entertainment; if you find yourself treating a complete stranger with heartfelt kindness without wanting anything from him or her... it means that a space has opened up, no matter how briefly, in the otherwise incessant stream of thinking that is the human mind." - A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle

Inspiring quotes!

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? (God in "Evan Almighthy")
“To love another person is to see the face of God.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
Aggie: "But what about the people who hurt you? Don't you ever want to make them suffer?" Norman Babcock: "Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there's bad people that there's no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there's always someone out there for you. Somewhere." - Paranorman
“You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” by Walter Hagen
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, body totally worn out and screaming "WOOOHOOOO what a ride!" - by anonymous
When you travel, it’s not like you take a part of each place away with you; rather, it’s as if you leave a part of yourself there, like a part of you forever belongs to that place – the time, the people, and the things you saw; and over time, it gets burned deeper into your soul - by anonymous
