Signs that elections are coming


Sign #1: Buangkok MRT station will be opened by mid January.

Transport Minister Mr Yeo Cheow Tong says it is not an election sweetener as they have been looking into this issue for quite some time.

Yeah, right. We believe you Sir.

Me: Anything, I go GV website book the ticket.
Me: Hey, go look at the GV webpage. Some jokers book the seats until there is a cross now.

**Well done guys**

The Exorcism of Emily Rose

**Contains Spoilers**

Went to watch The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Not a bad movie. Finally a horror movie with somewhat better story line. But they sure need to work on the scare portion. Those sudden loud noise type of scare are just too lame. Perhaps the Americans can learn something from the Japanese or the Thais.

But the movie was far from the real story. Emily Rose’s real name was Anneliese Michel. She was a German, not American. She was believed to be “possessed by demons” for several years and Bi-Weekly exorcisms was conducted over several months before she died. While the movie says that only the priest was charged in court, in real life, both the priest and her parents were charged and sentenced to 6 months jail.

Nowhere was there any mention that the defence lawyer and the priest was also being attacked by the devil. No mention of a doctor who was present during the exorcisms. They are just there to spice up the story.

So much for a “Based on a true story” movie. Perhaps they should say “Inspired by a true story” instead. My take is, watch the movie, enjoy the story and forget the “Based on a true story” tag. Maybe the upcoming Movie Requiem by German director Hans-Christian Schmid would tell a better true story.

Singapore welcomes A380


Welcome to singapore.

It must be quite an amazing sight to drive on the road when the A380 is crossing above you. Cool.

Clowning me

Those who knows me knows that I like to joke around, crack stupid jokes etc etc. I just enjoy making people around laugh.

But perhaps I’ve overdone it. Someone told me to grow up today. It’s like a knife stabbing into your heart. Does joking means that someone is still immature and needs to grow up? Does it mean I have to be serious all the time and stop joking?

Perhaps I should stop. You keep joking until people think you haven’t grown up.
And to make things worst, when I say something serious, people still think I’m joking.

Perhaps I should cut the jokes. Stop being a clown myself.
