800 morons

The police and civil defence received about 800 calls today with regards to the trembling.

For F**K you call the police and civil defence? Did anyone commit a crime? Is anyone injured or sick? Do you need an ambulance or fire engine? Is your building going to collapse soon?

Is there anything that the police or civil defence can do to stop the tremble?

Wake up your bloody idea lah. What is the purpose of calling the police or civil defence? What if someone got a real emergency and couldn’t get thru the line?


Interesting earthquake experience

The earthquake was actually quite a funny experience.

A colleague who owns a car wanted to go to the carpark at the basement to drive his car out of the building asap, in case the building collapse. We were at the top floor. Told him that if the building really collapse, the top floor will be saved first, while the basement most likely last.

The first thing the admin clerk do is to call the building management. She wanted to report to them that they felt the building shaking. But the line was engaged.

I wanted to tell her that even if they were sleeping, they would had also felt the tremble.

Bump into a director from another dept while waiting for the lift. She jokingly told me that she need to rush down to her dept urgently to get her staff to evacuate if necessary.

I wanted to tell her that most likely her staff already got out of the building since their office is at the ground floor.

On our way to lunch, we jokingly said that must find a open air place for lunch. Ya, right.

Heard that some of the building at Raffles Place and Shenton Way evacuated the whole building. If you see the news, you would see videos of people at the ground floor of the building.

If the building is going to collapse, being at your office is much safer than being at the ground floor.

Our building management made the following announcement over the PA system shortly after the 2nd tremble.

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, further trembles has been felt in the building. Please remain calm.

Ya, we all felt the trembling, unless you are in the toilet. So what is the purpose of the announcement?

Few hours later, another announcement was made

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, no further trembles were felt for the past few hours. Please continue your normal operation

You mean got people stop work because of the trembling?u

Was watching Channel News Asia’s website. Some viewers submitted video and CNA uploaded it to their webpage.

Wah paing!!!

Video of lights swaying, necklace swinging and water in fish tank moving also can submit to them and upload to their website.

Told my dad to shake his fish tank or the light so that I can take video of them shaking. Maybe can submit also.

The news reported that some schools send their students home after the 2nd tremble. Maybe they were afraid the building might collapse.

But hor, if the earthquake is strong enough to make the school building collapse, would the student’s home collapse too?

Both Police and The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) issued separate statement saying that there is no need to panic because our building can withstand trembles.

If you ask me, I only listen to the BCA for the obvious reason.


Did you see or hear any interesting earthquake experience? Come share share.

Shaking event

Felt my office shaking just before lunchtime. It was quite scary. Felt a bit giddy. Not sure what happen. At first I thought I’m going to faint, maybe because not enough sleep or something. Then I notice my colleagues also felt the trembling.

Next question on our mind was…. what happened? First thing that come to my mind and some of my colleague’s mind was the building construction just across the road. Did the building collapse or something? Someone looked out and from his body language, we could tell that the construction next door is alright.

Could it be the construction affecting our building’s foundation? Could our building be another Hotel New World? Everyone was wondering what happen and what to do next.

I was having a discussion with my colleague at his desk. I left my handphone at my desk. After the tremble, the first thing that came to my mind is get my handphone and put inside my pocket. Just in case if the building really collapse and I survive, I can still call for help. Or at least play mp3 or games while waiting for help. Ok, I think too much already.

Everyone in office is wondering what to do next. The directors were deciding whether to evacuate everyone or not. As it is near lunch time, most people started leaving their desk for early lunch.

While waiting for the lift, we overheard someone saying our colleagues at HQ in CBD also felt the tremble. So it has nothing to do with the construction next door or our building’s foundation.

Then the next question. Is it an earthquake in Indonesia? I don’t know why, but somehow my creative thinking mind was wondering if it an earthquake or nuclear bomb explosion. Haha…. I was thinking, maybe one of the nuclear power launched a nuclear attack or test that causes huge trembling. Or worst, some terrorist got their hand on a nuclear bomb and set it off somewhere nearby.

OK, I think too much. It is really an earthquake in Indonesia. First time felt an earthquake. Quite scary…..

Our office tremble again after lunch. It was the aftershock. But this time I was in the toilet and didn’t felt it. The rest of my colleagues all felt the shaking.

Conclusion: The building foundation at our toilet is the strongest. hahahaha….

Calvin Klein underwear

If you guys notice, I’ve been putting Calvin Klein underwear in my X-mas wishlist. But nobody gave me that for X-mas leh.

Anyway, I got 1 lately. My first branded underwear.


At first I thought these branded underwear are just good to see only. But I didn’t expect it to be so comfortable. Can really feel the difference from my usual 3 underwear in a box.

Not only is it comfortable, it also sort of push my backside up. Suddenly I feel so sexy. As though everyone is looking at my butt. It also gave my tool good support.

Loved the new underwear. I think I’ll buy more in the future. They are expensive, but worth the money.

But hor, their size is slightly different. Damn those bloody ang moh. I’m supposed to be ‘L’ size, but end up wearing your ‘M’ size. KNN…. *&#%$@

Windows fails second virus test

I’m not surprised when I saw this article.

Microsoft’s Live OneCare security software has failed tests which check how well it spots and stops malicious programs designed to attack Windows.
OneCare was the only failure among 17 anti-virus programs tested by the AV Comparatives organisation.

Microsoft’s software only spotted 82.4% of the 500,000 viruses that the independent group subjected it to.

The test is the second in less than a month that Microsoft’s anti-virus software has failed.

Now… no wonder the Mac people are laughing.

But then, this is no laughing matter. There is another report that says that Mac users ‘still lax on security’

Apple makes great play of the fact that its OSX operating has yet to be attacked by a virus while Windows XP machines are plagued with problems.

Which is quite scary actually. I keep telling everyone that all it takes is for someone to find out how to write virus for MacOS and almost all Mac will be doomed. In the past, it seems to be meaningless writing virus for Mac as there are not many users. But as Mac get more and more popular, I won’t be surprised that hackers are already writing virus for Mac already.

Its just a matter of time…..
