Cheyne Settles in a New Home

Cheyne, my 8 year old Golden Retriever, found himself temporarily without a home recently. Due to some unfortunate events that happened in the house he resided at (not where I stay), he had to be sent to a boarding house. He’s very sad to leave his home… it had been the same in the past when no one was home…

Free Gift, But so Reluctant to Give

Two nights ago, I visited Yoshinoya at Great World City. As part of their 10th anniversary celebrations promotion, I was given two of those peel-n-win lucky draw stickers with the meals I purchased. I sat down at my table, peeled the sticker and found myself the lucky winner of a… free cold tofu dish. Okay, I don’t know what the…

Cupcakes Made in Fairyland

[images missing] Aren’t these cupcakes so lovely you’d think they were imported from Fairyland? These cupcakes were for my niece’s full month celebration (she’s the baby, not that she had a baby… haha I’m not so old lah…).

Supicious Item Spotted at Airport

Spotted this unusual looking item at Changi Airport. The first thing that came to my mind was its resemblance to a bomb. You know how it is, so much public education being drummed into everyone to report every suspicious item (or persons). Had it not been on a trolley, accompanied by a pail and a mop, this would certainly have…

Wow! Is that a Mainframe Computer?

A computer science student saw this, and asked if it was a mainframe computer. I was almost going to burst out laughing, but managed to hold myself together. I’m sure most of you know it is not a computer at all. This 1.7m high contraption is an isolation transformer. At least you should be able to tell it is some…

Bricking of iPhones

Apple has certainly earned a lot of publicity on their iPhone. There was the legal wrangling with Cisco over the iPhone name at the start, activation woes from early users, unlocking of the iPhone software, and now, the fiasco over the bricking of hacked iPhones. Apple is usually known to have a wonderful marketing and PR engine. It seems like…
