Knowing is Half the Battle

Knowing is Half the Battle

Caught GI Joe on the eve of National Day with a few friends from army days, and the turnout was quite big – 12 of us occupied one entire row in the movie theatre at Marina Square. The plot was OK, though some of the scientific stuff seems a bit stretched too far, but hey, it’s a movie. Sienna Miller and Rachel Nichols were hot. Action was good, but not to the point of saturation. Overall a 7 or 8…

End of First Reservist Training – Many More Years To Go

End of First Reservist Training – Many More Years To Go

It’s been a real fun two weeks under reservist training – no need to think too much, just do our best and suffer together under the hot sun. Thankfully, we had an off day on Thursday due to the military burning one Sunday during the two weeks (the military is pretty smart, by giving us a day off in lieu of a burnt weekend, there is no need to pay us extra allowance), and a few of my platoonmates and…

Friday 13th in Sembawang

Friday 13th in Sembawang

My last day of work was on Friday, and I treated my close colleagues to lunch @ Sun Plaza Delifrance. Bad experience with the food there because they did not deliver the correct food for a vegetarian colleague. I left my workplace slightly earlier before knock-off time to go to my company HQ in Alexandra. When I reached there at 5:15pm, sadly, office was closed, so have to go on Monday. So much for “Human Resources”. Will miss my colleagues…

Food & Macintosh Cravings

Food & Macintosh Cravings

  Finally after a year’s worth of deliberation, I have started to work on the Macs at my workplace – firstly I needed to find the best Macs, which are the Power Mac G5s, and did a full clean install on the Mac, followed by the software updates and whatever the school can get for free and has already purchased. The initial plunge was a little bit difficult, but I eased into the Mac’s interface by using the help system…

Addicted to Alpen

Addicted to Alpen

Bought a 6-pack box of Alpen energy bar for $7 yesterday, and realized that chocolate is the “in” thing now for this type of bars. Basically this should serve me for the rest of my RT phase 2 days (at roughly $1 a bar, you could potentially save $4 per RT day after transport), and probably for my evenings at SIM as well. Only caveat is to drink water and probably eat something small and light (like a croissant or…

Have You Met The Legendary Rare Character, Lui?

Have You Met The Legendary Rare Character, Lui?

Guess who I saw on the bus today? The one, the only, Legendary Rare Character, Lui JY! Seriously though, it was really good to see him, since the last time I saw him was like, around a year ago? We chatted awhile on the bus while I was on the way back from SIM tonight. Looks like he’s doing fine with his architectural work, and with the currently hot real estate industry, I expect him to be very busy recently….

More than Meets the Eye

More than Meets the Eye

Yup, caught Transformers at Yishun. The reason why me and my friends watched it at Yishun is because one of my friends woke up late today, so the only place with good seats were at heartland cinemas today. Anyway, it really is “more than meets the eye”, contrary to what the newspaper reviews say. Overall it was a really good action-packed movie to watch, as expected from Michael Bay. After the movie, we went off to Chong Pang Nasi Lemak…
