I'll try my best to post the super late photos tomorrow. =)

Wisdom tooth extraction was one of the painful thing I've encountered so far.

I've been wanting to remove it during my NS time,but was told by my mother that since it doesn't bother you so much,and it was grown in a very nice position,then don't do it.

It was until the dentist recommended me for the extraction because it may incur tooth decay,I decided to do it.When I went for the x-ray for my teeth,I was shocked that the lower one actually grew in a very awkward position,which is kinda perpendicular to the tooth next to it.

I've heard different kinds of horrible experience from the people and how the extraction have affected them,I wanted to chicken out.But for the sake of not have anymore tooth decay,I had to do it.

The dentist did gave me some warning about the after effects such as permanent numbness in your cheek(that was like 0.5% chance),I hesitate before I made any agreement to sign the paper.Think the dentist is rather annoyed by my persisting questions(the cost fees,the process,etc...).

Now comes the operation part.My heartbeat goes faster than what I have during the waiting process.The anesthetic was painful,but it helps to numb your cheek so that you won't feel the pain during the removal.

Think the dentist went on drilling off the lower part of the wisom tooth,as it's the hardest to be removed.I afraid they might not be able to do it,but after 10-15 minutes of drilling,the lower and the upper part has been removed.

My swollen right cheek.It took me 3-4 hours for me to recover.

My wisdom tooth.The lower one was drilled into lots of small pieces while the upper one was a completed one.

With all the surgery,I got 5 days of MC.It was a hard earned(and a painful one)I have ever had.

The recent case of contaminated milk in China has caused a crisis around the World.In Singapore,products like rabbit milk candies has been taken off the shelves due to Melamine content.

Because of this,people has lose faith in the dairy product.They may have think twice before buying.They became paranoia when they saw dairy products on the shelves.

But then,this mentality of "all milk is poisonous,I ban myself from drinking" concept doesn't last long.People eventually still needs dairy product.I can't get myself drinking kopi-o everyday or else I grow fear in it.

Don't tell me when rice(in certain country) became contaminated,everyone should ban themselves from eating rice?

Another late post in the making.

My fifth t-shirt online came after my sixth one,probably due to the shipment delay over there.It took me one and a half months just to see this t-shirt arrived at my doorstep.

Anyway,the design is rather simple,artistic in a sense,different from the "detailed" t-shirts that I'd bought previously.

My sixth t-shirt,on the other hand,arrived 1 week after I ordered online.This could be one of the fastest(and cheapest) shipment I've ever have so far.

I loved the fish-eating-the-vehicle design with all the different models of the bicycle join together to form a fish.If you look carefully at the t-shirt,you will see E.T.

As the US currency becomes stronger right now,I had to cease buying t-shirt online.Will wait for the US dollar to drop.

Yesterday's performance from our HGC was good,but not for the singing part.I was getting feedback from alot of people that I lost my form during the harmonizing part!What I could say is,blame it on my bad flu.It was really,really terrible one.

I can't wait for the next performance to come.I just need my sweet comeback.

The skit was much better I would say.Ivan can really act.In fact,all my HGC people can really act.Perhaps this Christmas performance our HGC can take over the whole show?Hohoho.

Today was Zhixiong and Jaslyn's wedding.I was late to hear Zhixiong's touching song for her bride.Arrggggg!!!!!!Did anybody here film down what he performed today?

The food was not bad,except for the garlic scallop(too salty),prawns(not so fresh)and the aloe vera with honey and(a very sweet dessert with very long name).Other than that,the chicken was good,so was the rice.

Anyway,today is mid-autumn night,so I shall share some mooncake celebration photos taken last Friday.

Each of us brought different kinds of mooncakes to share.We didn't managed to finish it,so we decided to give it to someone else.

Belinda with her whistle sparkles.

Andrew plays with the sparkles.

I supposed to take some photos at Chinese Garden,but withdrew due to drizzling.Maybe I'll go there tomorrow.

I had a lunch conversation with my colleagues and one of the colleague came out with an idea:a challenge whereby when everybody laughed at my joke,I had to give them a treat.

What kind of stupid challenge is that?!Either way,I'm still on the losing side.

Another of my colleague found it impossible,as there's one particular person whom will hardly laughed at my joke.

I immediately say out loud to them: "Am chio dio lai sa".I got a fast response from one of them with a laugh.

Then I realized my mistake.I didn't preach the point right.It should be "nai xiong",not "lai xiong".If you were to say it to a girl,I don't think you'll get "lai sa" from from.Instead you'll get "lai xiong" from her beatings.

So I've learnt: 1 word different can mean alot of things.

Last Sunday we finally had our kid's carnival.After 1 year of hiatus,they decided to bring the atmosphere back in church.

When I reached church at around 10.15am,most of the event has already started.The kids were having a game of captain's ball.

Photobucket Image Hosting
Everybody wants to take a photo with the purple monster.

Photobucket Image Hosting
The youths with Fe...I mean Barnie.

One of the main highlight of kid's carnival will be the dunking machine,as in who will be the chosen one to be dunked?

Photobucket Image Hosting
Here we have Junwei getting ready to be the youths!

Photobucket Image Hosting
The reaction when the youths "betrayed" him.

No,Junwei,they're not betraying you.It's their form of showing their love,care and concern towards you.Get it?Haha.

Everybody tried in vain to get Junwei down the water but failed eventually.

After several tries from the youth,it was Ian who managed to dunk Junwei into the water.Impressive indeed!

Photobucket Image Hosting
Next up,we have Pastor Chee Khim.

Pastor Chee Khim seems to draw even more crowds than Junwei.Wah,all of you really love your pastor so much until you all spent $5 for 3 tries ah.

So who dunked the pastor?It was one of the visitors that someone brought.

Ian is super sharpshooter loh!He dunked every single person sitting on the hot seat except for his dad(Pastor Chee Khim).This shows that blood is still thicker than water.

Minesweeper game.Lonely,very lonely.

Photobucket Image Hosting
At least James came here to support the game.

Photobucket Image Hosting
Another lonely hit the can game.It was played,but it's free.

Photobucket Image Hosting
Shoot the burning candle game.

Photobucket Image Hosting
2 years ago,we have the shootout.This year the game is back!

Photobucket Image Hosting
Obstacles are much tougher than last time.More complex,more attraction.

Photobucket Image Hosting
Taking his aim.

Photobucket Image Hosting
Waterbomb.Seriously I don't know what's the aim of this game.

Photobucket Image Hosting
Console games are forever the oh-so-popular spot in the kid's carnival.Here they are,playing with Nintendo Wii.

Photobucket Image Hosting
They have games like Mario Kart and Mario vs Sonic Olympic Games.

Aiyoh!So cute!

So what is kid's carnival without the food?Of course we do serve lots of yummy food.The popular hotdog bun sold out super fast when I came to the store at around 11am.

Photobucket Image Hosting
Bee Hoon store.

Photobucket Image Hosting
Fried rice store.

Photobucket Image Hosting
This is our store.We are selling bee hoon too.

Photobucket Image Hosting
Mouth-watering chicken wings and bee hoon.

Actually hor,there are 2 stores selling bee hoon,1 store selling fried rice and 3 stores selling chicken wings!So where are all the wide varieties of food?

Photobucket Image Hosting
Store selling muah chee and otah.Kinda weird combination I would say.

Photobucket Image Hosting
This store deserves a thumbs up!First of all,this is the most important store ever - the drink store.Secondly,they took a big effort to actually decorate the store banner.It's very attractive.

There was a captain's ball competition going on at the carpark.

Our Queenstown HGC got knockout during the first round.It was a close fight with Punggol HGC.If only they didn't sub Pastor Chee Khim inside their team we could have won.

Well,even with James we couldn't win the game.This shows that captain's ball is not about one strong men in the team,but it's about teamwork.Our HGC lack of the teamwork,and our group consist of 3 girls and 2 guys.Where's Ivan and Alvin when we needed them?I could have let Felicia be the ball catcher while me and James handle the match.

Arrggggg!!!!So many thing just ponder on my mind.Anyway,it was a good game.With more practice,we shall take the challenge again.

At first the game was played with balance of guys and girls,until at the 3 team round robin match it was mainly a guys' game.

So who won the captain's ball?

Photobucket Image Hosting
It was the TUF.Ehhh...Eugene consider TUF ah?

I did not came home empty handed.I was in my impulsive shopping spree and bought something in church and Vivocity.

Photobucket Image Hosting
From top: A handmade turtle($8),a polar bear($2!) and a box of mooncake($26).

I like the polar bear because:

1. It got a sleepy eyes.

2. It's white in color and I like white animals.

3. It's fat,cuddly and cute.

I had to put Polar(the white beast)and Java(the handmade reptile)in a safe zone so that my nephew won't take them home.

The carnival is not as happening as last time.Mainly because of:

1. Some unoccupied space for inspirational store.I personally think scope the goldfish was good,but the goldfish eventally died after the whole event.Maybe should provide some oxygen tank for the fishes?

2.There are some not so fun store which was left abandoned.Should not have put in the mindsweeper which becomes a place for gathering and chit chat.

3.Unoriginal food store.As I said earlier,so many store selling the same stuff!We should add in ice-creams and brownies and maybe exotic food store.

Anyway,good job to the organizer and well done!I believed everybody enjoyed themselves getting good deals and dunking your best friend/pastor in.I hope to see more happening stuff in the kid's carnival next time.
