18

That's the legal age to drive in Singapore, and also my score for my second driving test yesterday.. I PASSED!!!!! Yay! :)

So happy! At first I thought I had failed cos the tester sent me back to the test centre without testing u-turn.. Heard from Sito later that some test routes had no u-turn. Oooh..

So, I passed. Now, will you let me drive your car? *wink*

PS: Na, think you're the only brave soul to let me drive yours- with you inside!

Thought (as a verb)

Had an interesting lunch with the ladies. How different life here would be without them, no matter how much I like my portfolio..

Work per se vs. people you work with - which is more important to you?

The most interesting work can cause much anguish and misery at times, but the pain is minimised when there are comrades to 苦中作乐 with =)

Am I pretty?

=)

It has been a terrible month so far, with work and mouth ulcers.. Hope I don't look worse at the end of it..

Weird

Woke early, arrived at work early but was locked out cos the security system broke down!

So I read the newspapers instead and came across these two reports on the same page in my paper:

1) Man jailed for seven years and caned six times for (a) making $3,000 worth of 1900-XXXXXXX calls, (b) seven counts of burglary and attempted theft amounting to $9,500, and (c) three counts of holding porn VCD.

2) The guy who pushed his gf into the MRT tracks had been charged with attempted manslaughter - she didn't die. The law states that a person convicted of attempted manslaughter can be jailed for up to three years or fined or both; if the victim is hurt, the convicted can be jailed for up to seven years or fined or both.

Does anyone else think that the sentences don’t seem to commensurate with the acts - money vs. bodily hurt??

New name

The names of my department and two of its three units have Chinese tranlation; my own unit has none after we changed its name some time ago..

Yesterday, during a huddle near my cubicle, we had an idea:

包山包海署 =)

Hence I'm buried in work..

拜拜,拜拜!

Went back last night after some shopping with CY at Ikea. Found that Mother has "sent the gods away" that day..



So the altar no longer had the tablets.. Very soon, the altar itself will go too, making the living room more spacious! :) Not to mention no more incense, no more tears :)

Hope to update soon on all the upgrading stuff - the house actually looks prettier now.. Not bad for a 30-year-old!
