Interesting Letter to the Press

http://comment.straitstimes.com/showthread.php?t=13401 Check out the above link. I am pretty amazed at how united Singaporeans are about how they feel about the letter writer. I’m really quite surprised they feel so strongly. I’m really a little frightened about the strong reaction. I didn’t go through all the response pages, but up to page 3 or 4 [...]

Melbourne Cup Losses

Today is Melbourne Cup day.  The Melbourne Cup is reputed to be the race that stops a nation.  Well there’s a lot of truth in that.  At least, it stops a State if not a nation; it’s a public holiday in Victoria today. We aren’t normally into races, or sports betting.  The only time I [...]

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

I’ve finally finished reading the last book in J K Rowling’s hugely successful series. Don’t worry, no spoilers in this post.

Tuen the Plumber

The dripping faucet in our bedroom got worse today, and even with the tap fully closed, the faucet was dripping pretty badly. I decided I had to fix it today. I had already bought the jumper valve about a week ago, but didn’t get around to fixing it. The problem was, I wasn’t quite sure [...]

Baby Croozer

Back in Singapore, when we had our first batch of kids, once in a while I would see a caucasian riding a bicycle and pulling one of these cool baby trolleys behind. I was into mountain biking those days (still am, but more lethargic nowadays) and had always wanted one of those baby carriers. But [...]
