Dr. Chan Khye Meng


Not seen him in decades. Dr. Chan Khye Meng was our doctor when we were kids. So were most of my classmates. In those days most of us were living in the same neighbourhood.

Absurdly Priced Chives from the Wet Market


Each miserly bunch of these chives is $1.80 We paid $9 for these. Totally absurd.

Normally each bunch is bigger and also cheaper at $1.50

This is the last time we buy this if they don't improve from here.

Mother's Day: Unhappy Mothers

Several moms I sent Mother's Day greeting too uncharacteristically did not respond. I think they have stopped being happy about motherhood. They were happier when the kids were younger. Now that they are practically grown up, they saw a side of the kids they are not pleased with.

If only they were willing to wear each other shoes, but I oversimplify the issue. Indeed many times that is not possible.

Last Car Service



Not happening. Collecting new car next week. Why bother to send this one to be serviced? But also lost one service in the package I got from them last year too.

The Notre Dame fire and human nature


Plain old fashioned human nature. We hate un-glamorous work. Safety and fire prevention are such. Any job that don't help someone look good, is not given enough attention. Fighting fire is so much more heroic but I don't think firemen want to do that if they can help it.

Thin Skin Shanmugam

It was a frivolous response to a non threat. Is the honorable minister more fragile than eggs that he could be felled by one egg?

It was joke was entirely right. Now it has also made the minister a laughing stock among many of us.

Broken bowl on CNY's eve


I broke a rice bowl whilst washing the dishes after dinner. Not an auspicious sign right? But since we do not have faith in such nonsense, it has no impact on us. The daughter immediately found another bowl to replace this one.
