I've thought of moving to a greener pastures.

No,it's not my job,but of a better place to do blogging.Maybe I'll move to Wordpress,where I can simply do a password protected blogging without people knowing all my personal stuff

This should be it.Will do a move next year.

Sylvy told me yesterday about my lack of blogging nowadays.That was during the time of our ex-TIPSian BBQ session.And yes,we did had a wonderful time catching up with one another updating the current self situations.

It's time for me to get back to my blogging business.

As you have noticed,I have not been blogging for the month of October,reason is because the lack of mood to blog.Facebook may be one thing,but there will be time I will stopped playing because it's getting nowhere.

Facebook may cause a lost of your social life and behavior.Period.

So therefore,in order to cut down on Facebook,it's better to do blogging and meet up with friends for coffee session.

There are quite a number of things I want to blog,that would be:

1. Church Retreat

2. Combined birthday of Elvin and Raymond

3. HGC Special

Maybe I should just tackle the retreat part on one of this week.I'm kinda busy with things this week(Tuesday and Wednesday Rally rehearsal,Thursday prayer meeting,Friday to Sunday Actual Rally).

Does it mean that I have only Monday to catch my breath?!Oh shocks!

For many months,Wei Liang has been away from the World.

Until now,Wei Liang is trying to come back to the World,but he's stuck in his World.

So how do Wei Liang come back from his World?Probably to do some room tidying,housekeeping and spend some time with his family and friends and less time with his bloody Facebook.

Yeah,this should be his way.It's time for him to meet his friends for supper till the midnight!

So Why?

Aren't you blogging?

I must admit,facebook is way too addictive.I must try to restrict myself from playing too much of the games and applications inside this website.

But frankly speaking,facebook instead of becoming a place of community and expending a social circle of friends,it became a place of fun and games whereby you make friends just because you want to expend your mafias,vampire friends or whatsoever.

So what is the real purpose of facebook?What makes it different from friendster we used to have?

Anyway just to keep you people update:

1. I finished my Army half marathon 1 month ago and the feeling is super tiring.I short-circuited my handphone(and it was back again by buying another new set of battery),having some kind of painful abrasion around my you-know-where and my leg is kinda un-walkable the next day.

I didn't managed to take part in the Standard Chartered run this year due to budget constrain,which mean I've only achieve 50% of one of my New Year Resolution.

2. My camera went hay-wired 2 weeks after the Army Half Marathon.When I tried to take a picture,the camera gave a beep sound and the focusing lens is unable to retract back to its original position.After several minutes of troubleshooting,I finally made it retract.

However,this camera is unfit for shooting.Think I have to take this to the service centre before my brother went mad seeing the faulty camera.

3. August is a really bad month for me.Every single misfortune is caused by water.Rainy days to be exact.

4. Indeed God provides.I wanted badly a guitar to practice playing with it(if I have the time)and behold!A guitar rested gently inside my parent's bedroom.I has only 5 strings and it requires a fine tuning.Perhaps William can help me or something.

5. 1 down 11 to go.If you know what I'm saying.

6. Oh when do we get to celebrate Elvin and Raymond's birthday?Waiting for Glenn to come back?

That's all for now.For those who want to get more updates about me,do check out my facebook or twitter.

Have not been doing some online t-shirt shopping recently because either the shirt is expensive or the design is not appealing to me.

It was until I saw this design few weeks ago and I decided to buy this t-shirt.The cute mischievous Mr Fox!

Actually I do love fox,I love all sorts of furry cuddly animal,that will include wombat as well.If I have a chance to go Australia,I would like to hug the wombat.

Let see if I could get the 10th t-shirt before the end of 2009.

August 08, 2009

Sorry people that I neglected my blog once again.It was due to the fact that I'm busy hooking on to my facebook playing Mafia War,Farmville,Pet Society and going for my bridging course and taking my exam.

You know,ever since I'm having bridging lesson,my time duration at home has been shorted.Even if there's no lesson during the weekend,I was tight with all my church activities and other stuff.

Oh yeah,going for the SAFRA run next week.Another weekend gone.

Swimming?That was like 2 months ago.

Oh crap,I miss my breakfast around my area.The Tiong Bahru curry puff,the bee hoon and the fried carrot cake.

I seriously need a break from all these thing.I need a deep sleep from 11pm until 11am.Arrrggggg!!!!!!

Study may cause you to stress and makes you looked old.That is why I need to take care of my health.

But then,I got people telling me that I looked young.This means that I actually preserve my beautylooks.

Perhaps,all the ex-TIPSian looks young.That will include Junwei

More photos coming soon!

July 26, 2009


Last Saturday a we had our own stay-cation at the Hangout hotel.This is the first time a group of us stay in a hotel which is within the area in Singapore.

I was actually very tired after all the point to point trip on that day.First of all,I didn't really had a good rest on Friday(after my ICT).Secondly,I need to go for my PA duty on Saturday.

To make things short,here's my situation:

1. Went for my PA duty from 11am till 12.30pm

2. Rush down to Douby Ghaut to meet Ming Keat and William

3. Check in at the hotel under my name,then rush back to church for choir audition.

4. Was late for my audition(3.30pm),proceed to do my PA duty.

At this point of time,my energy level is slashed by 75%.

To replenish my energy,we had a dinner at one of the restaurant around Little India.

Recommended by Ming Keat and Kelvin,it must be something good.

For starter,we had Tandoori chicken.The meat is well marinated,just that it's kinda salty.

Then we had fish head curry.Very spicy.

Last,we had chicken masala and shell-less crab.The crab meat is very addictive,just because it's nicely shredded.

Their famous filter coffee.I did have my intake of coffee in the morning.But since Ming Keat recommended this drink,I must try it.

They have a special way to process this coffee.FYou need to pour the coffee into the saucer,then back to the cup.Repeat that for 3 to 4 times.

The coffee is very sweet and creamy.I love creamy coffee,but I prefer it to be less in sugar.Anyway,it's a good drink.

Overall,I love their food,especially their special rice.It's very soft and easily digestible.

Going back to the hotel,we have Kelvin and Yan Liang to fill up their name at the counter.

The light goes out and I can't be saved.Tides I tried to swim against.

Activities on display.

Hello?Anybody here?

The room is very simple and clean looking.No TV,no fridge.Who needs them anyway.

Toilet.Alright,nothing special.

Cheers for our brotherhood!

We had a sharing session with one another.We shared our personal stuff and we actually heard quite alot from William and Ming Keat.

I shared with them my personal problem and was touched that they're willing to help me overcome this problem.Many times I shared with my friends and what I get from them is just acknowledgment.

The next day:

We went to the top floor for photo taking.The place is just full of plant.

Our group photo.It's been a long time we took a photo as a group.Ming Keat do looks different with his funny face.

Hangout Hotel is a very nice place for accommodation and chills.We booked the room at about $178 per night for 5,which is relatively cheap for a stay in Singapore.Maybe I'll recommend this place for a group gathering.

July 22, 2009

The difference between they and us.Why must it always rain on my work day?

July 18, 2009

Came back from my high key reservist training and was so tired after that.It was not due to training,but of a long waiting time during out process period.

Anyway,thank God that He had pull me through the tough training and combat shoot.If not,I won't be here typing my post.

Some of the thing I would like to share during my 2 weeks of training:

1. Tackling study and training at the same time

Going for bridging course and training simultaneously is tough.Firstly,the insufficient time to study for my exam.Secondly,the tedious cycle to get myself out of the camp(need to talk to OC,CSM and PS).But thank God I managed to study for my Principles of Accounting during my combat shoot and outfield training during my little free time that I had.

POA paper was kinda okay,it's just the balancing that gives me one hell of a headache.Anyway,it's over.Just cross my fingers and wait for the result to release.Hopefully I can get a Credit or maybe a Distinction.

2. God actually provides

I got 2 souvenirs for my in-camp training.One was a shoe bag and the other was a toiletry pouch.I didn't actually think of how should I use both of it until I realize it when I took a shower the next day.

I desperately need a toiletry pouch because the one that I currently used was in a bad condition.I searched high and low for a suitable pouch but there was none available.The one closest to it was in the form of a medic pouch.

As for the shoe bag,I always wanted a bag to contain my shoes without the use of a plastic bag.I was withdrawn from buying the shoe bag from World of Sports due to no particular reason and was surprised when they actually gave me this as a souvenir.

God,indeed works in a mysterious way.

3. Combat shoot and Instinctive Drill

Combat shoot was very scary.First of all,it's been 4 years since I've fired live rounds and my skill might be getting rusty.Secondly,the commanders are not really well trained for SAR21.

But still,the combat shoot ran rather smoothly.No people was injured during the shoot but there are people who misplaced their bayonets.Till now,I don't know who's the joker who claimed for the lost bayonet which was found by the officer.

Back to the combat shoot,I was hoping to get the marksman for the shoot because it was an easy money(of $200!).I realized that our detail have 2 Bobo shooters who brings down the overall score with more than 5 ammo left untouched.OH MY GOODNESS!

For me,I did alright for my day shoot and was shocked by my night shoot.I scored 15 and 18 for my day and night shoot respectively.I didn't expect to have scored 18 for my night shoot with 2 ammo left untouched.

We had "Iron Lady" for the last day of ICT.This is the first time I did this and the feeling was quite fun,but combat shoot was better.I did okay for the shoot(6 out of 8).Looks like I'm not really that good at doing day shoot.

4. Rambutan and Durian Session

Not really a fruit session,I get to eat the rambutans during our outfield exercise.Most of them were sour and the meat sticks onto the seed.If you want to know which rambutan is sweet,look out for the ants.

I missed the durian session because of my POA exam.Damn!I have to wait for the next year of ICT.

That's all for my ICT.No information was given for the next ICT.I really hope it won't falls on my exam period.

July 07, 2009

Came back from a nights out granted by the officer.May be going through this daily book-in/book-out everyday except for next Tuesday due to some exercise.

My third cycle is kinda boring this time.Not much of interaction between the old commanders and new troopers,perhaps no refresher training = no communication?

Anyway,I'll be going outfield next week with the old troopers next week.Hopefully,we'll be able to gain some bonding out of it.Sounds gay,but I love listening to stories from each one of them.

But then,will the OC let me go for time-off from outfield exercise to take my exam?It'll be rather tedious I would say.

July 05, 2009


Yeah sorry for the lack of updates recently.It was due to the fact that my processor fan actually spoils instead of my power supply.Really felt my heart broked when I wasted $59 for that power supply.

Alright,let's just say it's an investment to make my computer performs better okay?That old power supply is kinda...up lorry pretty soon.

I'll be going back for reservist tomorrow.This will be my third cycle and it's gonna be a 2 weeks of stay in camp.Really hope that they will release us everyday just like the previous 2 cycles.

After my reservist,I'll be going for a stay-cation with Ming Keat and the rest at Mount Emily.It was recommended by Ming Keat but I actually knew this place from Glenn.It was said to be a cozy and rather quiet area and judging from the website it looks good.

That's about all.June indeed is a boring month for me.

June 22, 2009

My power supply in my desktop started to malfunction.

When I switch on the computer,it will actually shut off during certain timing,say one and a half hour time.This is rather frustrating when you're actually trying to type some documents and print out.

Is this the end of my power supply?

Yes,I'll have to change it to a new one,unless I received a sponsor from someone else(to give his old supply to me).Think I need a higher power supply so that it won't get spoiled easily.

June 15, 2009

I don't know if it's my camera or is it just me,but I find my camera phone did a better job when comes to macro function.

How I wish I had a Canon G10 or EOS1000D.But then,I've to settle for my study first.Maybe when I graduated,Canon released G12 or EOS2000D.

Dancing Man

Yesterday Kelvin Lee,James and I happened to see an Indian guy outside our church after service.He was like holding a mini radio and danced around on a pavement.He got horned by the incoming vehicles for 3-4 times but he's still dancing all the way.

Kelvin Lee tried to entertain him by doing his own move.I told him not to do it and I actually looked away in disgust.

Actually hor,that Indian guy danced pretty well.No pun intended,he should have join the Bollywood dancer.

Or did we actually caught by the "Just For Laugh:Gag"?

We had western meal at a coffee shop where they serve nice XO fish Bee Hoon.It was recommended by Kelvin Lee who told me that their food is very nice.If Kelvin says it's nice,it must be very nice!

I ordered fish and chips.The fish,together with the fries,is smoking hot!I actually scalded my tongue while trying to eat the whole fries.I had to eat it bit by bit.

The service is excellent too.After the meal,they asked us for some feedback and they shared with us how they prepared the dish.It's rare to find this kind of service in a normal kopitiam nowadays.

The price is rather steep,it's $8.90 for my food.But it's worth the price.Next time,I'll try the chicken leg which Ming Keat ordered.

June 11, 2009

1 paper down,5 more lessons to go.Maybe after learning about some basic laws,I have a clear understanding on how the law can be applied.

Anyway,my next lesson will be principle of Management.Should be something easy to understand bah.When will my principle of Accounting and Quantitative Method start?

June 06, 2009

Today was my first day of bridging courses.One word to describe everything: Tired.

I didn't expect going for lecture for 8 hours is a tiring thing to do.1st of all,you got to have the stamina to sustain long hours of lesson,break,lesson,lunch,lesson,break and finally lesson.Perhaps I'll be doing this for another 2 more years or so.

Gladly speaking,the lectures is awesome.The lecturer is humorous,explains everything in details so that people won't get lost.Surprisingly,I didn't fall asleep throughout the lecture.

Didn't get to know the people around me.Blame it on my shyness,or should I say,I'm a hard-to-get?Hehehe.

I'll be going for another 8 hours lecture tomorrow,will be having an exam on Wednesday.Do pray for me that I'll be able to get back my study momentum and also to understand the lecture well.

Remote Carrier loves eating honeydew.

He likes his honeydew to be sweet.It makes him want to fall in love with another person.

He bought honeydew to eat everyday.There may be days it taste sweet,and there will be days it taste bitter.When it taste bitter,he had a hard time working.

Sometimes he wonders if romance do taste sweeter than a honeydew?

1. I registered for Accounting and Finance in SMa,University of Murdoch.If nothing screws up,I'll be studying SMa for 2 years.

Right now the 2 worries I've have in my mind was financial support and trying to pick up studying after 6 years of study hiatus.

Anyway,I'll do my best for the bachelor course.

2. I borrowed a GPS from my colleague to track on my running distance.It turns out that I only managed to run 5.7km in about 37 minutes!Looks like I have to explore new routes to cover more distance and change my New Balance shoes.

3. Enjoyed the bowling session yesterday.I didn't know that there are other HGC coming for the bowl too.The game was fun,except that we lack of the cohesion session.Hope that we'll do it better for the next HGC outing.

2 weeks ago,we celebrated Kelvin Lee's belated birthday.We were supposed to go JB for some fun and feasting,but the birthday boy choose to be in Singapore rather than over there.So we respect his decision.


We went to Aston Specialty for our lunch.I heard many reviews about this restaurant,both good and bad.It's better to try out their food before making any judgment.

Kelvin Lee the Yandao!

I ordered grilled fish because I'm kinda craving for fish on that day.The fish is not bad and the mashed potato...just need more gravy to it.

I saw many people ordering root beer with their meals,so I followed them.

Kelvin ordered Rib eye steak.

William ordered chicken bolognese.

The bill for my meal turns out to be $10!This is really very reasonable,compared to Botak Jones.But then,Botak Jones has a bigger serving than Aston.Anyway,they didn't include service charge to the meal and GST is already included inside the menu.

Will definitely going back there next time,but will need to make a reservation because the queue during evening time is damn long.

How I wish I can do something to decorate my room.

Maybe beautify this room by buying a stack of mahjong paper,colored markers and start drawing some pictures,probably bit by bit everyday,until you filled the mahjong paper with colorful pictures.

If possible,I may want to involve my friends to draw along too.I kinda visualized how the whole pictures may turn out.You can even play a game of "I Spy" with it.

This should be it.I shall get mahjong paper and start painting.

May 24, 2009

The last day of our HGC retreat.Nothing much we can do,except to play a game of teamwork and revealing our guardian angel.

Right after our breakfast,we had a team building game which was played by the other HGC.I supposed all the HGC had to go through these game.

We appointed Gary as our leader while the other team appointed Pastor Geoffrey.

Most dramatic scissors,paper,stone I've ever seen.


It's a draw!


Pastor Geoffrey won.They let us play the game first.

What did we actually go through?

First stage,the ball passing game.5 representatives have to pass the ball simultaneously to the person next to him/her 5 times(used to be 7 times).Another word,to throw 2 balls(in your hands)at the same time.

This is one of the most pek-cek stage we had to go through.We actually dropped the ball for 4th-5th try and managed to make it for the 6th try.At that point of time I was about to give up.Fortunately we don't have to do it 7 times.

Second stage,skipping rope game.5 representative have to jump over the rope for 5 times(again,used to be 7 times).

We have no problem with the jump and we make it on our second try.For the other team,they had to do it a lot of times.

Last stage,through the hoola hoop.Easy one,just that the hoop is kinda small for us.

We won the game using 2 minutes 35 seconds of our time.We're the fastest among the rest of the HGC,just because we don't have to pass the balls 7 times and jump the rope 7 times.

After our game,it's time to reveal the angel.

We have James to start the drum rolling.

Belinda is forever so drama-mama.

As for me,my guardian angel is Ye-ye(knew it all along during day 1)and Ye-ye's angel,coincidentally,is me.

That's all for the angels and mortals.It's a wonderful game indeed to get ourselves working instead of just slacking inside our hotel room doing nothing.

Taking a group photo with Pamela,Yanyi and Kelvin Lee.

Kelvin's expression when Pamela pressed his head close to the camera.

That's about all for the retreat.There will be more retreat to come during November/December period.

May 17, 2009

Sorry for delaying the post due to the fact that I'm still overcoming my personal issues.Anyway,after praying to God,I feel much better now.

2nd day of the retreat is what I'm looking forward for.That's because we're going to Pulau Ubin Chek Jawa!I heard some nice stories about Chek Jawa and we can see beautiful coral when the tide is low.I got to see it to believe it.

Had breakfast inside the hotel before moving off.The bacon is very salty.

We are having a scavenger hunt in Pulau Ubin.The rule of this game is simple: Find the things listed in the paper and shoot it(with your camera).

It's Labor Day,this explain the disgusting crowd of people going to Pulau Ubin.

The ferry terminal changed tremendously since the last time I went Ubin,which was like...8 years ago?

And off we go!

The former Clementi-Redhill gang HGC.

Me,James,Pamela and Kelvin(kenna stepped).

The boats that were behind us.

We are reaching soon!

This place is so crowded that the mini van had a hard time driving us to Chek Jawa.

Yeah,we took the mini van aka the taxi to our destination.Cost us around $2 per person.However,if you wanna go for the bike,it would be about $6 per hour,plus a hard time trying to navigate to this place.

There's even a desinated parking space for the bicycle at Chek Jawa!

What will we find there?

Can you spot the big spider?

The whole journey is a long and tiring.Tiring thanks to the super hot weather that cause my whole body to perspire like mad.Good thing I've put sunblock to protect my skin,or else I'll be having a major sunburn.

No space for us to take a shelter!

On our way,we saw some fiddler crabs.

The atap-chee.Yummy!

2 aliens on the spacecraft waving at me.

View from the top of the tower.

Anybody guess where's this place is?

After exploring Chek Jawa,it's time for our lunch.It kinda disappointed that I'm unable to find beautiful corals during the low tide.Anyway,that's the end of our trip.

We had some problem with the van that took us there.First of all,we didn't buy the tickets to go back,until at the point of time his friend helped us to contact him.It took us 30 minutes of our waiting time for the van to arrive.It's our fault for not buying the tickets back.

As for the another batch of group that was led by the female driver,they were less fortunate than us.It took them 1 hour for the female driver to take them back,resulted in late lunch consumption.

The Quarry on our way back.The water there is beautiful.

Time for our lunch!The store aunty showed a black face when we reached.That's because we are late for our lunch.

First stop restaurant.If I remember correctly,is where we had our dinner with Richard and the rest 9 years ago.

9 years ago......*sigh* I'm getting older.

Pastor Geoffrey with Weiling's baby.

The ornament outside the restaurant.

Here comes the dish!

Sweet pork chop.It had a strange taste.Nevertheless,it's great.

Sambal Sotong.Very fresh,very juicy.

Sambal Tofu.Nothing special.

Crunchy vegetable which I didn't take.

Sweet and sour fried chicken chop.One of my favorite dishes.

Fried prawn.Usually I don't take prawns with head because I'm lazy to peel it.But for this,the head and the body of the prawn is very easy to peel.No hands are required to peel it.

I don't know why,but we're eating very fast.

An excellent lunch indeed.Simply loved the freshness of each and every of our dishes.

After lunch,it's time for a walk(and a cycle)to digest our food.

A parrot at one of the stores.

Poor doggy.It must have bitten one of the tourists,or else its mouth wouldn't be covered up.

Another wonderful scenery.

Felicia,Yanyi and Pamela.

Wonderful quote with a redundant last sentence.

Time to made our way back!If I'm not wrong,I drank alot of water without going to the toilet in Ubin.

We were all very tired from the trip,but still we're energetic to take more photos on our way back.

Errrmmm......pastor,I can explain.He was trying to clear my choke.Yeah,choke.


Dinner was nothing special.We had dinner at Thaipan but the food that was served is not even Thai style.

That's all for Day 2.
