Singapore teletubbies

Posted in Uncategorized on May 23, 2012 by crystalake

Due to all the studying and thus less time on sports, many teenage boys’ growth (height) seems to be stunted.

When the China lady told the media that Singapore men are short, she is not joking. It is the hard truth. In fact, in China, men less than 1.7m are called can2 fei4. Then, the male readers accused her of being too aloof, and arrogant. Then, they started to justify that since she is 1.7m, of course men appear short to her. But… why fault her over just talking about the truth? Even if we don’t talk about it, we can see it for ourselves in mrts, malls, schools etc. The local men are very short… most of them are the same height as their gf or just a bit taller, sometimes shorter… sigh

I am only 1.7m tall too, and sometimes, I thought I am in Lilliput, esp when I wear heels.

By right, the younger generation should be taller than the older one due to better nutrition etc, but in Singapore, it seems the opposite. Thus, to add more height, have you people notice that these boys start having weird antennas on their heads to add height? By antennas, I mean hairstyle on the top moulded till it looks like a pyramid or antenna?

This is so funny… reminds me of teletubbies… Maybe can add at most 5cm? plus tall shoes, another maybe 5cm?

My aunt always complain that her son is always late for school, as he spends a long time in the bathroom trying to make his hair stand. No wonder Gatsby and hex are flying off the shelves as they are needed to make hair stand. Another trend is to perm the hair up there till it is tall and fluffy like a pom.

You know, height does not matter at all, it is the character, kindness, empathy, nice. So… pls don’t have a “cone” on top of the head anymore….

综合讯,消息来源指出,震惊各界的新加坡法拉利车祸的幸存者吴薇薇,并非如一些报章报道的是夜总会红牌酒女,而是一名就读某私立学校的学生。
一些消息来源指出,目前在陈笃生医院就医的吴薇薇,当天凌晨和朋友一起在克拉码头一家酒廊喝酒聊天。消息来源称,星期六凌晨三点半,看到吴薇薇和朋友在酒廊聚会。
一位消息来源说,吴薇薇应该是在结束聚会后,并未参与聚会的男友马驰驾车前来接送吴薇薇回家。根据时间分析,车祸应该发生在马驰驾车从克拉码头沿着维多利亚街将吴薇薇送回位于小印度地区城市广场附近的居所的途中,在梧槽路口出事。因此,马驰凌晨应该没有喝酒。
一名消息来源说,即将毕业的吴薇薇和马驰有半年的密切交往,关系匪浅。而吴薇薇的一些同学和朋友也都知道吴薇薇有一位驾法拉利的朋友。
车祸发生在星期六凌晨4点多。法拉利撞向一辆出租汽车,导致出租车司机和乘客死亡。驾车者马驰当场身亡。
和马驰一同乘车的吴薇薇逃过死劫,目前在陈笃生医院治疗,并动了手术。
据海峡时报网站报道,吴薇薇来自中国武汉。

请你停下飞速的脚步,等等你的灵魂—源自一场车祸的沉思

Posted in Uncategorized on May 17, 2012 by crystalake

其实关于这则车祸的新闻,几天前就见诸SG的各大媒体,当时给我的感觉只是为当事人感到惋惜,想象他们亲人获悉后的痛心,但是随着背景事件的报道后,才引起了我的沉思······
Ferrari(法拉利)限量版跑车,31岁ZG富少,3人死亡,这些都是新闻的明显字眼,也让我感觉出或许这又是一起ZG人在SG的“杰作”吧!许久以来关于ZG人的事件就一直不曾间断过,我都产生了一种思维的定式了,以致但凡有报道负面新闻时,我都会首先想到:ZG人又闯祸了吧!就像一个顽童的父亲接到学校老师电话的第一反应一样···
报道称,12日凌晨4时,一辆红色法拉利跑车在SG市区一交叉路口超速闯红灯,与一辆出租车相撞,除法拉利车主当场死亡外,52岁的SG籍出租车司机和出租车内的一名JP乘客也在送医后不治身亡。SG《联合晚报》报道称,死者是31岁的ZG人,2008年到SG从事金融和投资活动,目前正在申请永久居留权。《海峡时报》称,肇事者驾驶的限量版法拉利价格在140万美元以上。
这就是最原始的报道,随后关于这位肇事的ZG富少有了更多的新闻:其妻子是国内SC省电视台前主播,已有一个4岁的女儿,现怀有第二胎,肇事的车内还有一20岁左右的年轻女子,据后来分析富少和年轻女子深夜在PUB狂欢后醉酒驾驶,当时的闯灯的车速在100KM/H···看完这些我想这个富少不仅是一个夺取他人生命的杀人凶手,还是个沾花惹草的十足淫棍,给他死是正确的,不然以后不知还要做多少孽,唯一不幸的是那两位冤死的德士司机和日本乘客···
后续的报道又开始针对ZG人了,很多的SG人在网上打出了”将ZG人赶出SG”的口号,还有了攻击政府的移民政策使得ZG人越来越多。其实在我看来大部分的ZG人在这还是比较好的,他们勤劳,努力工作留学,为自己的美好未来奋斗着,但这并不能掩盖一些素质低下的国民。
人都是有了对比之后才能区分好与坏,或许你置身生活在那样的一种环境中不曾感觉的到,换一种环境你将体会的淋漓尽致。说心里话SG并不一定是最文明的国家,但她的民众文明程度还是高过ZG的,这并不是说我是怎样的崇洋媚外,我们的老祖宗就告诉过我们要去正视自己的缺点,不要避讳。在SG生活过的人都知道,在这不论做巴士、MRT还是买东西,大家都会自觉的排队;汽车都是让人的,当你过斑马线时,他会远远的停下让人先过,甚至我有次看到一辆车为了让一只鸟过马路,停下来等了10S;在外逛街,你听到最多的会是Sorry和Excuse me,别人从你身边路过打个喷嚏都要说声对不起;在这你最不用担心的就是食品安全问题,SG的人几乎都是吃外面的,很少在家做饭,楼下的食阁应有尽有,很是方便,如果大家都吃着地沟油做的饭,我估计他早就灭国了;也不必担心孩子的奶粉,牛奶问题,因为SG是个岛国,根本没有资源,一切的一切都要依靠进口,在这你可以吃到世界各国的食物,所以食物的安检是绝对安全的;还有最主要的就是公共安全了,我印象中SG的法律应该是号称全球最严格的,特别是鞭刑,甚至连学校里都有,小孩子犯了严重的错误也是要受鞭刑的,所以在这你几乎看不到斗殴,抢劫等严重的暴力行为,我觉得SG人是“挺好事儿”的,他们最爱报警而不是围观,在路上只要看到有纠纷他们就打999······当然并不完全都好,我个人理解其实SG人最大的不足归结于自私,一切为自己,特别是对于金钱问题上,其实这就是资本主义国家的金钱至上原则,因为在这样的一个国家你没有钱就等同于没有一切。
其实SG好与不好,她终究不是我的家乡,真正令我担心的是ZG。这些年我们确实很速度,一切都要求速度,但是我们思想上的速度没有赶上经济上的速度,所以就会有了那一幕幕的黑暗,大家为了鼓起的腰包,失去了最纯真的人性,光鲜的外表并不能遮掩丑陋的灵魂,人们的冷漠才有了一个个“小悦悦”,我们不在以礼仪之邦自豪,却有着世界第二大经济体的骄傲。一切的这些使得我们的国民在外饱受排斥,made in China更是垃圾品的标签,为什么现在很多的事情都是针对ZG人,我觉得我们得从自我的反省开始······
或许这就是社会发展的必由之路,或许我们期待的文明会在经济发达后出现,但是现在请正视我们当下太多太多的问题,所以请停下疾驰的脚步等等我们的灵魂,否则我们又将立足于何处呢???

I wish I could grow things here, besides weeds. The whole garden is so messy, and I am too lazy to tidy it up.

Chilli : friends said I should plant these near the gate to keep pests away, I dunno…

Mango tree : prob alot easier to plant in this tropical weather

Aloe Vera plants : multi uses, and looks cute too

Fragipanni tree : I heard it is a haunted tree? is this the “ji dan hua” tree?

前门下巴士扣车资

Posted in Uncategorized on May 17, 2012 by crystalake

搭巴士从前门下车,男主管被车长告知会多扣一次车资,查询后赫然发现每月已多付约20元车资。

冯先生(56岁、物流主管)向《联合晚报》投诉,本月4日早上,他和妻子搭巴士出外,因为从前门下车,被扣除多一次车资。

“当时巴士上很多人,我无法走到后门,于是从前门下车,谁知道阅卡后,车长告诉我,这样做会被扣两次车钱,因为阅卡器会把我当成是再上车,再扣另一轮车资。”

他说,他和妻子不相信车长的话,于是到附近地铁站查卡,果然被扣除多一次车资。可要求退款。

Passenger MUST inform the DRIVER change it to EXIT, then you can get off infront EXIT. 搭客应該通知司机換阅卡器換成EXIT,才下車

搭客须确定阅卡器显示“上车/下车”状态,这样才不会被多扣钱

Whether you are driving, riding, cycling or just a pedestrian, following traffic rules are no longer safe now because there are bad people who do not follow rules
