Movie Ticket Petition

Do you know now you have to pay S$9.50 for a movie show during the weekend?

“In view of the price hike by 3 companies (Shaw Organisation, Eng Wah Organisation and Golden Village) from 16 May 2005 onwards, singaporeans should not stand down towards the three companies which comprise the Cinematograph Film Exhibitors Association (CFEA).

This 3 companies have gone ahead of the Jan 2006 ‘price-fixing’ law which forbids companies from directly or indirectly fixes purchases or selling prices. It also prohibits the abuse of market power by a dominant player (or a group of them) to drive out competitiors, which clearly is shown in this example of raising of Movie Ticket’s prices.

In this case, since the law is not underway yet and the companies have jump ahead to raise the price before the law gets to them. There is nothing that can be done EXCEPT for us consumers to unite and go against these 3 companies.”

Do something. Be heard.

OMG! So cute!!!

The Best PC-Illusion

This is without a doubt one of the coolest PC illusion I have seen so far. Follow the instructions:

1) Relax and concentrate on the 4 small dots in the middle of the picture for about 30-40 seconds
2) Then, take a look at a wall near you (any smooth, single coloured surface)
3) You’ll see a circle of light developing
4) Start blinking your eyes a couple of times and you will see a figure emerging
5) What do you see? Moreover, who do you see?

Motion-Induced Blindness

Today I shared this interesting website to my fellow colleagues via our office “ICQ”

R: check this out!

J: that’s just freaky…

(few seconds later)

J: hey next time you don’t see me at my desk, it’s just your eyes playing tricks on you… I’m really always sitting there ;p

Nice try, chap. You still haven’t pass your probation. LOL.

An Evening With Taufik

The night was a showcase of suaveness, talent, and chaos.

Yes, chaos.

It started with a frantic phone call from Kak Leza about Taufik’s jacket. Since I was around at the Kallang Theatre, I went backstage (obtained a crew pass from Sony BMG on the way *grinz*), met Taufik in his dressing room and got his 2-inches-too-large blazer.

Then I rushed down to Zara at Ngee Ann City with Shafik to exchange the blazer.

And then Lina send me a frantic SMS: “Not enough white paper!”.

Luckily I got Shafik with me. My cab turn round and round Ngee Ann (and the taxi meter keep ticking up and up) while he run up to somewhere to get 4 large rolls of mahjong paper.

Rushing back to Kallang Theatre, I met the whole gang of people – BMG staff, Taufik, his Bonafide gang and the rest. Luckily his blazer fits!

With a heave of relief, I headed back to the foyer for another two hours of frantic placard-making and fans-autographing before the final showcase.

Taufik did an awesome job. A review of the performance will be more suited for his official site, but sufficient to say they are plenty of good reasons why he is the man to be, choosen by millions of Singaporeans.

I cheered, whooped, clapped and screamed with the rest. Hey, glammed up as I was, I still want to have fun with my gang, ok!

After the showcase, I was ushered into the VIP reception *smug-face* where I get to meet Taufik’s extended family. Now I know where he got his long eye-lashes from!

The long queue of fans who won the meet-and-greet passes was formidable, and it was not until half pass ten when I finally get my turn with Taufik.

I gave him the 13 huge placards bearing his names and autographs from fans. Took a shot with him (he signaled my blazer was cool earlier on, hehe), and then I took off my blazer and asked him to wear it! A tad too big, but Taufik, the Idol as he is, is just a guy next door who has fame in his hand right now.

Thanks lots, man. And if you are reading this, read my lips: “YOU ROCK!

My Most Romantic Date


My Most Romantic Date

The sea breeze was blowing. Waves gently lapping at the shore. Rumba music playing loudly in the distance. Ships were sailing, their horn buzzing loudly. A lone sea gull flew across the sky.

But you and I are in our own world.

After 6 years, you would have thought it will be awkward. But it seems like only yesterday when we pick up from where we left.

As I lay in your lap and watch the stars and palms frame your face against the night sky, I feel blessed to have found you, again.

And this time I hope, for good.

Wine Appreciation Night

The event ended with a literal bang.

I mean, I have all the reasons to be jubilant about stuff. After all the problems that I encountered with the venue, everything ended up pretty fine. Three top reasons to be happy:

#1 : No la mei for the night
#2 : The bosses are happy
#3 : I had a blast acting classy in a suit

Okay, I know reason #3 is a bit lame, but hey whatever rocks my boat, man!

It was lots of detailed planning work, and not only on the event itself but the job board that I have to implement for their website. All in all, it was a relief that these collaborations had tied over.

After all the guests have left, Jude, Julie, Kelvin, Valerie and I had another round before happily headed home. It was yet another Friday night of drinks (the previous ones being this and this).

That’s how I ended up with this pic (more in the gallery). It was a night of laughter, tears, milk shakes, eye lashes, mascara, size 11.5 shoes, posters, showcase…

I thought of writing the funniest shit happened at Hereen’s Billy Bomber where we had dinner, but I’ll pass. Just that… next time, remember the milk shakes are NOT server in their blender cup!

Thanks Kak Leza, Taufik, Kak Sal and all for making it a wonderful night to remember!

Farewell to Felicia

Today’s Felicia’s last day in office. She has been temping for my good company for sometime, and now it’s time for her to move on to Poly.

My group of guys then bought a surprise card for her. And as we said in the card, Felicia, you are really one sweet girl. As sweet as the chocolate cake you bought for all us.

Keep in touch girl!

Moo-Moo Incident

Mutated cows had been sighted around Singapore recently.

The cows, believed to be unleashed by the equally multi-colored cab company, Comfort Delgro, were seen “mating” at open grass areas around the republic.

Fellow bloggers captured the indecent on camera.
