Hair for hope

What will you do for charity?
Some people donate money. Some volunteer at old folks home.

But would you shave your head for charity?

609 people will be doing just that for charity. And amoung the 609 people, 99 of them are ladies!!

Salute to all of you for your courage.

Degree in a box

Went to collect my course material for the coming semster. Instead of giving us all the books in a plastic bag like they usually do, they place it inside a nice box with handle this time.

Its like those boxes that they use to put new laptop.

How I wish getting a degree is like buying a laptop. Go to shop, choose model and walk out with a brand new laptop in your hand.

The broken chin up bar

Haven’t been doing much chin up ever since the chin up bar gave up on me. Keep asking dad to bring the electric drill from his office so that I could secure the screw on to the wall. But he keep forgetting and I keep forgetting to remind him.

As my ICT is coming, I decided that it is time to swing back to action again. So I finally remembered to remind dad to bring the electric drill back. Tried to drill the screw and nut back to the door frame. But it didn’t secure properly. Decide to use a hammer to hit the screw in….. BAD MOVE.

The plastic nut broke into 2 pieces.

I wonder if they sell just the plastic nut and screw alone. Else I’ll have to buy a new chin up bar. Argh…..

For the mean time, I have no choice but to use the public chin up bar at the parks.

Managed to find this isolated chin up bar at the Jurong Lake Park. It better to use a chin up bar where nobody can see. Don’t wanna make a fool out of myself infront of so many people.

The feeling is just not the same. Its better to have a chin up bar at home, on the door frame of your room. Oh well… better than nothing right?

Jurong Lake Park


Dark and quiet place to jog.
But floor abit wet. Need better drainage.

Lack of crowd control

Wouldn’t expect Mediacorp to have such horrible crowd control. Or rather, wouldn’t expect Mediacorp to have no crowd control for an event like this.

The whole place is in a mess. No proper queue. No staff to organise the crowd. Everyone crowding around the entrance with no proper ventilation for at least 15 minutes. Luckily, the crowd consist of mostly young people. Would be a disaster if someone faint while waiting to enter the theater.

Its a messy day….
