Singapore - Follow The Law? Errrr Perhaps Not!!

Follow The Law Singapore Signs.. It says, No Parking Of Bicycles..
On The Contrary..

I saw this uncompromising situation recently one evening when I went out to get my favourite Beancurd dessert. I just couldn't help but take a picture of this signage and all the bicycles parked just below the signage. Just when Singaporeans are just so 'well-known' for following orders set by the higher authorities, this scene is just too contradicting. Perhaps they don't belong to the local people? Maybe the bike owners can't read English?

Oh, and for those who have NEVER seen an EXTRA LONG bus before, the second picture shows just it. I know some of my friends who have seen or sat on the double decker bus but not the extra long bus before. This bus has been around for perhaps a decade. Kinda like two bus cabins joint together like the short LRT. It does get abit of bumpy if you sat at the second / back part of the bus, but thank God for it's absorber suspension...LOL


Been Ages, eh?

Wow, it's been ages since I last updated anything here... Well I felt like writing today since I'm off tomorrow. Work has been pretty crazy. We have our busy as hell days and we have some quiet days. We are understaffed - there's only two of us to handle EVERYTHING there is to do..

Anyone went to queue up when Shell offered petrol at $1 per litre a week ago? I didn't but I got to watch the situation. From 10am till almost 4pm the car queues were crazy. Honks didn't stop and the buses didn't get to ply their routes on time. Bus lanes were just useless. See the picture? This is the situation that happened outside my workplace, till 6pm. Crazy. A man with a large advertisement board on a stick walked up and down, counting down the hours. 4 hours, 3 hours, 2 hours... bla bla bla. I didn't queue though I had a quick thought. My petrol was about half full and by the time I reach the petrol station, I might have wasted the other half tank away...

It's only two weeks left before the school holidays comes in. I hope my girls won't be too bored. Intially our plan was to go back Penang for the long holidays but then, now that we have a business to run, it will be difficult. So I really have to find some activity for the girls.

I also think that I need some time to 'plump' up before I see Mom. I've lost weight tremendously and I don't want her to be too shocked. Moms will always be mom, she might start thinking unnecessary stuff. Work keeps me on my toes and many things on my mind gives me some stress. My body handles stress this way - lose weight. Forget all those 'kiam pui' centres, stress tops them all. I don't eat and sleep as well but at least the consolation is, I am able to put back on my old clothes which I thought I'd never get to. LOL

Forgive me if I had not been bloghopping too. I do want to but most of the time, I either have small pockets of time to either check some mail, fb mail and do some time on BBlitz. I don't even have time for my FarmTown, my crops have all died and withered.

I will survive.
