went to grams place yday for dinner. She was complaining to me that her left hand is aching and is very painful for the past few days. I volunteer to rub some ointment for her and she agreed. After I'm done with her hand, she asked me to bring her into the room to rest. I noticed that her legs are a bit swollen. Asked her whether she wants me to massage her legs, she agreed. As I was rubbing, she fell asleep like a baby...

Recieved a bad piece of news Ah Boey's grandma was warded on Saturday. Apparently her condition was quite bad. She vomitted blood and the doctor told the family to prepare for the worse. Though I never seen her grams before, but from ah boey's description, she seems like jovial and healthy. I called boey a while ago, her grams refuse to do any scope and said that she wants to go home.

Whenever I hear any of my friends' families sick or warded, I always feel the pinch in the heart....

I pray that her grams will recover fast....

The advancement of technology

I'm sure all of us have called up helpdesk before. Before you can actually speak to the Customer Service Officer, they will make you press the number pad to acess to different section of the menu. Sometimes its very irritating, especially when its a pre-recorded voice machine answering to your enquery rather than human voice.

However, I've got a surprise when I called up Great Eastern Insurance a while ago. Instead of pressing onto the number pad to access the menu, they made you say the word out. For example, if you need to speak to the customer service officer, you just need to blurt the word "customer service" and they "lady" would put you through the customer service officer.

Although I felt its quite awkward at first, but it did save me going through the agony of listening to the list of menu and then pressing the number to make my selection. There's human touch to the whole enquiry process. It made me felt that I'm "talking" to the other party. Theres how IT has benifited human in our life....

Singapore Beat China in Badminton!!!

Good News from the Athens!!!

Singapore's Ronaldo Susilo beat China Lin Dan, World No. 1, in Men's Single Badminton Round 1/32 Preliminaries. Susilo took Set 1 15-12 and Set 2 15-10. There was a live telecast of the match on TV this morning at 12:20am. Watched the first set. Must admit that Susilo's performance was great. He didn't have much facial expression, just played the match in a lighthearted manner. Seems like he didn't feel much stress facing the World No. 1. Dozed off during the commercial break after Set 1 so didn't manage to catch the Set 2. But it was indeed a great job done. The Ladies from the Table Tennis squad also had great news. With great news from Badminton and Table Tennis, I���m sure it will boost the morale of the Singapore Squad!!!

Went to Rochor for Tau Huay last night after the Firework festival. The group was chatting away when the uncle came over and chases us away. Apparently, we should leave once we finished our Tau Huay as other customers need to get seats. The strange thing is all of us guai guai listen to him and get out butt moving. None of us told him off which is quite an unusual sight���. Its my first time been chase out of the shop. So embarrassing���.

The firework display last night was very beautiful. The Hokkies definitely beat the Singapore Team! Currently my Yahoo! Photos have exceeded the file size, therefore I'm unable to upload the pix for your viewing pleasure! So guys pleas wait patiently��� will do some thing to it asap���

Got a surprise sms from Gerri Jie Jie in Germany. Finally settle down in her new apartment. She finally get connected to the cyber world, all of us have been waiting patiently fro her blogger entry. I guess she is busying unpacking coz this morning when I logged on to her blog, again no entry��� sad sad���

Jie dun worry, we will wait patiently��� oh ya I've recovered liaoz, although still having a slight running nose, my cough is much better now���

The New Chapter of Singapore

12th August 2004, 7:50pm marks a historic moment of Singapore. This is the day where our PM Goh step down and pass the baton to BG Lee who will take over as Singaproe Third Prime Minister since Singapore's independences in 1965.

Mr. Goh will succed Senior Minister Lee Kuan Yew's post and the latter's title will be Minister Mentor.

Dr. Tony Tan will remain as Deputy Prime Minister, who will retire in June 2005. Dr. Jayakuma has also been promoted as Deputy Prime Minister. He will take over the full swing after Dr. Tony Tan's retrement.

This day is also the Oath Taking Ceremony of other minister. In the new cabinet, there are two lady. It is a clear sign that Women has an equal stand in the politics. The whole ceremony was a short but solemn. Lead by Chief Justice Yong Pang How, the new cabinet took their oath.

Mr. Goh has been a great PM especially over the few years where Singapore is being hit badly by numerous globally event like the ecnomy downturn, the 911, the terrorism shadow, the SARS outbreak. He really did a great job.

As for our new PM, I do hope that he can do a better job, outshine his dad and Mr. Goh and lead Singapore to greater heights!!!

Enuff of all the political stuff, tomorrow morning at 1:45am, we will withness the live telecast of the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics Games. I'm totally excited!!! So for the next 16 days, I will probably rush back home after work to catch the updates of the game... Can't wait to see my favourite sports like, Swimming, Diving, Gymnastics, Archery, Vollyball, and many more....

House of the Flying Dagger

I went ot watched the House of the Flying Dagger. Starring Takeshi Kaneshiro, Andy lau and Zhang Ziyi. Its a crap show! It s like an ancient time Infernal Affairs. No originality. I concluded that the moral of the story is Never Say Die!
The final fight out - Zhang Ziyi got stab is the chest, she said her "last words" the drop "dead" on the floor. Takeshi came back look for her and found her lying "dead" on the floor. She opened her eyes and said "Look back" There, stand Andy Lau waiting to kill Takeshi. After a damn long fighting ordeal, Andy decided to pluck out the dagger that was stuck behind his back, and use it to kill Takeshi. Suddenly, we see Zhang Ziyi standing up. She too wants to use the dagger that was stuck inside her chest to kill Andy Lau. She did pulled it out but didn't use that to kill Andy. She lost a lot of blood and drop "dead" on the floor. Takeshi was devasted and ran towards her and hugged her. Again, she open her eyes and talked to Takeshi.
Therefore, I concluded that no matter how many times u drop dead on the floor, you will always stay alive until you finish you last words with the male lead. Its a stupid lame movie! But, I must say the scenery is good. Friends, out there please only buy the pirated DVD or VCD. Its not worth spending 2 1/2 hrs in the cinema watching this movie!!!

Absent from work for 5 days is never good. Theres so much work to do, so much things to follow up.

My cough isn't getting any better, my lungs are almost coughed out. I can sense that everyone is the office don't dare to walk past my workstation. My workstation is one place you will walk past when you goes out of the office, go to the pantry, go the the meeting room or to the copier machine. Today, everyone is detouring.

at 5:00 plus, I decided that I should visit the doctor to get some cough syrup and lozengers. If not, I don'y think I can get any sleep tonight.

Happy Birthday Singapore

Happy 39th Birthday Singapore!!! This year National Day Parade will see Mr. Goh as Prime Minister for the last time. On the 12th August, he will step down and take over the post Senior Minister. Taking over his place is Mr. Lee Hsien Loon.

For the past 2 days, I've been playing mahjong. Saturday from 7:00pm till 3:00am and Sunday from 12:00am till 6:00am. So today I decided to stay at home and rest. I went to grams place for dinner.

The gang went to watch the first Singaproe Fireworks Festival at the Esplanade. The event is suppose to start at 8:30pm. In order to get good sits, we were there as early as 4:00pm. Well, we definetly got good sits cause all the fireworks were station right in front of us, so you can expect how spectacular the whole event was. The strench of Esplanade, S. Benjamin Bridge and the bridge towards Fullerton Hotel was packed with people. We are going this Sunday again.

This year National Day is quite different from the past year. There are a lot of celebration events going on. Over at the Marina, we have outdoor concert. Most of the boyband from Taiwan like 5566, R&B, Toro, Yan XingShu etc were here to perform. I guess because Mr. Lee hsien Loon is taking over the PM position so that might be the reason.

Nevertheless, I really enjoyed the National Day parade. I always love the march past and firework.

Happy Birthday Singapore!!!

The Charming Grin

This is the pix I'm talking about. When I called him, he turn back, smiled and waved at me

The burning sensation

I finally took the courage to rub salt on the damn ulcer.
Ouch! Words can't describe... Anyway it really helps, after like 5 mins of endurance, the ulcer close up but my lips were swelling. For a moment, I think I look like the sausager-mouth Tony Leung in the movie - The Eagle Shooting Heroes. After a while, the swell subside.
Unfortnately, my excitement didn't last very long. This morning whe I woke up to wash up, I realize that the stupid ulcer is back to attack! I couldnt believe it. This sickening ulcer is haunting me!!!
After consulting all my dear friends, they said that I should rub the salt for a few times. Its not a miracal healing method that after 1 time the ulcer would disappear... Ok I'll take their advice and try a few more times. This ulcer is making me very sick. I can't talk properly, eat properly and is sufering from pain... I might sound like a spoilt brat who keeps bitching about it. But the thing is I seldom has ulcer in my life, so I guess the attack is a one time hit...
signing off....clariss aka suffering the devil work of a damn ulcer
