SMRT may face LTA sanctions for allowing ACS(I) to charter trains - Really?


Yesterday I read this news online where this is this claim that LTA will be taking "appropriate action" against SMRT. The whole thing is with regards to SMRT not having the permission from LTA to allow ACSI to charter the train. There was this whole lot of debate about traffic and cost efficiency and reduction of carbon footprints. 

To me, honestly, I feel all this could have been avoided if the boys had been asked to walk to the National Stadium instead of taking the bus OR the train. In that way, they can really help to reduce carbon footprints, help to reduce the traffic congestion, and it would really have been more budget efficient than to charter 5 trains or 80 buses. D-oh! Plus, the boys get to train themselves in long walks-- good training for route march, if they ever get enlisted for National Service.

Then LTA will not need to wayang and take "appropriate action" against the SMRT and the space used to report on their so-called "appropriate action" could have been better utilized on something else which could have been more newsworthy.

Living in Moderation?


And so the BF and I watched this Chinese New Year ad that was produced by Petronas last year...

BF: The last lady, she really brought up her son well.

Adi: I think her son is the most successful, possibly the richest.

BF: I don't think he is the richest lah.

Adi: He is. You think so cheap meh to own a car and support a wife and his kids, and still have time to pick up the mother go Cameron all.

BF: It's about living life in moderation.

Adi: That is the mentality of rich kids. Rich kids always talk about living life in moderation. How to live in moderation when you barely have enough to even live a basic life? If I am rich, i can afford to not work and enjoy life to the fullest. Don't work and spend all my time with my parents. If i am a struggling low income person, of course i have to work OT and spend all my life working to support my mother's medical bills and kids and car.

So... moral of the story is, work your ass off now, and become rich. So that your kids don't need to work and can spend all their time with you.

On a side note, sometimes I draw inspiration from these videos to write my script. Maybe you guys can too....

I'm Prince Charles Theory

Mum: (with a soft tone) You don’t want to get married?

A: Nope

Mum: You should get married? You must extend the family lines, have children.


p.s: I wonder if this is what Queen Elizabeth said to Prince Charles when he married Princess Diana. I feel like I’m in the shoes of Prince Charles now…

The West Gate Mall Fiasco

video

I am sure many Singaporeans have read about the disaster that happened at West Gate Mall. A glass door has collapsed on a 4 year old boy, hurting him in the process. Now look carefully at the CCTV footage that has been released by West gate officials. It was clear that the boy was playing with the door, incessantly pushing the door beyond its limits.

I don't know about you guys, but as I was watching this, only one thing comes to mind: Parents! Where are the freaking parents to this kid?!!!

Red

Red is the colour
Of blood
Of love
Of prosperity
Of anger.
Red can symbolise
Brotherhood
Independence
A new lipstick
A saucy woman.

Red is the colour of my hair.

The Dusts that come...

And so the nightmare begins
The need to do more
The need to get more
The need to achieve more!

We never knew when to stop
cos we've been brainwashed
to think.... no... not to think
Cos we never get to think
We were just told
More is more
and more is better.

And so we keep going around
searching for more
till there is no more
but just dusts
Massive amount of dusts!

The Many Possibilities

Here I am awake
Staring at the screen
As my mind begins to wonder
Of the so many possibilities.

That is the magic in life
there can never be one answer or one outcome
Yet I don't know why
Some individual can be so adamant
on sticking to just one
Really?
Are you really that boring and predictable?

Even my grandmother is more interesting.....
