I know some people who think that if you turn on your tap by a small amount so that the water comes out drop by drop, the meter measuring your water usage will not run. That seemed pretty reasonable to me when I was younger because I figured that the meter must be using the force of moving water to turn some kind of wheel or gear in order to work, therefore if the water moves very slowly, then the meter would not notice any water moving.
Tell me, pls, that one such person who thinks that way are my parents... worse, OUR parents..w
dun think my parents think tat way... no matter how hard i try to avoid bathing more than once a day to save water... they always nag until i bath the second time on some days *roll eyes*
my parents do let the water drip when they are filling the pail when cleaning the house. i think they just dun wanna let it fill up too fast.
my parents let it drip, but cos it takes hella long time to fill up the pail, everyone simply forgets abt it, and no one can hear it overflowing... call that conserving water...(-_-lll)

I've got two great plans right now that will hopefully improve my NS life. The first is getting a Weiqi set so I can learn and play Weiqi in camp. The other plan is a little more fun. I am considering bringing my electronic keyboard into camp so I can play it in the evenings. My friend Shuquan claims to have some nice music scores and we are gonna try playing some duets if we do get the keyboard in camp. Hopefully his voltage transformer works because my keyboard adapter is designed for Canada's power supply of 110V and not Singapore's 240V.
the Singapore Weiqi Association conducts lessons for weiqi of all lvls (i never go b4 tho). they also sell weiqi set i remember.

A while ago, two bondbreakers came forward and told their side of the story. There was an ex-PSC guy and an ex-A*star guy. Basically, they made the respective organizations look like insensitive assholes. Unfortunately, I only had the opportunity to read A*star's response in the Newpaper and not PSC's. I also noticed that quite a lot of people were quite pissed off with scholarship organizations from the opinions on the internet.
Privilege and Entitlment...not that again...(T_T)
ya.. no offs for NDP cos schedule was very packed... and they kinda forgotten it? (maybe was given to us but not a lot. the most 1,2 days i remember)

Serving NS is really inconvenient. I kinda missed my days in Toronto when I can just go watch any concerts or performances whenever I want. Last year, I missed the Tchaikovsky Festival due to an army exercise in Thailand. And now I will miss Lea Salonga's performance at the Esplanade because of another army thing. I'm hoping to catch Swan Lake by the Royal Ballet from UK but wait...that's in June, which means there's a very very high chance I'll be in Thailand again for another army exercise. So you people out there better be real grateful I'm missing all these great shows so that you won't get hit by a bomb falling from the sky when strolling along Orchard Road!
erm... the most is we get arty shells landing on Esplanade due to poor comm....(hope you dont do it on purpose, unintentional is ok)

I went to the Doll Me Up! Bridal Fashion in Miniature exhibition at the Singapore History Museum on Friday evening and I must say they have quite an impressive range of works. Some of the designs are simple and elegant, others are elaborate and fancy. Barbie dolls never looked so good! Go check it out yourself at the Singapore History Museum, #30-09/17 Riverside Point, Merchant Road. The exhibition is on till 8 May. If you are a cheapskate like me, admission is free after 7.00pm on Friday (closing time is 9.00pm). If you are both cheapskate and lazy, here's a website with small but sufficiently sharp pictures of the dressed up dolls:

I probably read more books in the month of March than in any other month this decade. Of course, this would not have been possible if I wasn't stoning in some Indian desert, so I'd like to thank SAF for providing such a golden opportunity.

I have just returned from a really long overseas army exercise. Here, I would like to share a true story about my platoon-mate who was G6PD deficient and ate about 10 Malaria pills in 10 days. Fortunately, he ate both Maloprim and Doxycycline. If he ate only Maloprim, he would have already been dead. Instead, he only turned very very yellow. He became anaemic and we had to give him some packets of blood. Don't ask me how anyone can be so blur. I don't understand either. But looking on the bright side, he inspired me to write a limerick. Here it is:
