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 [...]

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 [...]
