I read the Digital Life provided by Selena today n I'm damn tempted to get myself a new 19inch LCD screen. With prices as low as S$399 for a 19" 8ms response time screen, this has got to be deals not to be missed this coming PC Show which starts on Thursday. Other than the LCDs, I had set my eyes on a pretty affordable laptop from HP. It runs on the new AMD Turion64 micro-processor n has great features such as Win XP Professional edition, DVD-/+RW optical drive n a biometric fingerprint sensor, all for just S$1899. I choose AMD over Pentium Centrino cos it's such a power saver n runs at a lower optimum temperature. Hmm... Even my desktop is powered by the AMD Athlon XP 2500+ Barton processor chip. Haha.. It seems that I'm anti-Intel huh?
It was super busy at work today, so much so that all of us almost went bonkers packing the huge order of medicine. I was running up n down, clearing the buffers as well as looking for medicine. I had to leave work a little bit later than my scheduled time because of that. Heck.. Me n
Mum finally finished making the rice dumplings today! I got home n saw a bunch of freshly made dumpling. I couldn't wait n grabbed one to eat even before dinner. Yummy delicious! Mum makes the best dumplings! My 4th aunt n cousin came over for dinner, taking some dumplings with them when they leave. Come to think of it, this cousin of mine actually looks a little bit like Fann Wong. Haha.. We're not very close though, seeing each other only during CNY every year. Just when I dreamt of Fann Wong last night, she came to my house today. Such coincidence.
Wednesday tomorrow. It'll be
Here are some extra pics i got from Selena on the BBQ @ Granduer8

This is one of Singapore's oldest hawker centre
Had some desserts
N lastly, Rojak
What a Joke
Heh, good morning. I just woke up from my sleep n i actually remembered my dream. Most of the time i wake up trying to recall what happened but to no avail, unless the person I dream is a special someone in my life.
Ok, I dreamt that I had a girlfriend, n she's Fann Wong. Haha, go laugh all u want, cos i was laughing at myself too when I opened my eyes just now. What the heck in my brain thinking??? Perhaps i watch too much TV cos she's appearing on a Channel8 drama series every weekday 9pm. None of my friends look like her anyway.
Haha, ok, gotta go bathe n head for work soon. It's Tuesday, n the sky looks dark now. Rainy day? Anyway, it's Digital Life Day!! Heh, PC Show is starting this Thursday, time to look for good deals..

Monday, I woke up early today to get ready for work, but something very stupid happened. I actually forgot where I had placed my glasses the night before n was searching for it frantically just before I was about to leave the house. The search caused me to be late for work. I really felt like a cock. Dad was back from
My Sunday was spent "overseas" Haha, not exactly out of country, but to a
Off we went on the slow bump boat onto the island, the last place in
Suddenly the sky started to darken n we could hear thunder. My worst fear had been confirmed. The rain is coming. We stopped by the street near the jetty n had our lunch while avoiding the rain. The rain didn’t fall heavily, instead, it drizzled. The heavy drizzle lasted for about 3hours! MQ n I almost fell asleep in the Ubin Heritage Centre waiting for the rain to stop. When the rain finally stopped at 3pm, we were only left with 2 hours before we had to return the bikes. So off we went into the trail again. This time, we ventured into the rocky n muddy dirt track of the forest.
The route instantly reminded me of the days in Tekong when I had to march ten over kilometres on the muddy n uneven route, giving myself numerous blisters on my feet. MQ struggled through some part of the rocky surfaces, but came through unscathed, I'm duly impressed. An unseasoned rider like her can actually follow me through the pretty tough route, which is something quite incredible.
We ended up on the other side of the island after losing our way on the route to a quarry. I have to say the map of the island suck, I should have brought a compass with me instead. The trip wasn't wasted though. We had a very nice view of
It was fun, except that the rain shortened the time we had to explore the island. Another time perhaps? Haha.. MQ ended up with wobbly legs on our way back. Lucky that she could still get on n off the boat on her own, albeit with a helping hand from me. We grabbed a bite in
First pic of the day. Just when i was setting off, i saw this BMW 318i opp my Sunny. Heh, some rich guy in my block has bought a 2nd hand BMW.
Wait for MQ under the block.

Finally, the rain stopped n we continued riding. Went past this tree with fruits growing out of its trunk
One of the many quarries on the island

We went into this resort called Marina Country Resort. I never knew there's such a place on the island
There's even a rock wall in the resort

I'm puzzled. Does this block of residents near MQ's dislike air-con? I could only find one unit with the equipment in this pic.
