OK, I know this CP Shrimp Wonton has been out in the market for very long. But the mountain tortise me only tried it for the first time last sunday. I was hungry in the afternoon and was hunting for food in my fridge when I saw this in the freezer. Perfect food for a cold rainy afternoon.
I knew cooking this wonton is easy, but I didn’t expect it to be THIS easy. Just boil water, pour the powder for soup base, put the Wonton in, wait 3 minutes and you have a bowl of hot wonton.
It is that simple. There is another version which is like cup noodles. All you need is to pour hot water into the bowl of wonton. Imagine, no pot and bowl to wash after eating. Perfect for a cold lazy afternoon.
I sleep at around 2:30 to 3am everyday. Not that I don’t want to sleep earlier, but I don’t feel sleepy at night. And since I’m sleeping late, I usually wake up late for work too. I need to wake up at around 7am each day. But I end up waking up at as late as 8:30am. (I start work at 8:30am) That explains that big stack of taxi receipt in my drawer. And no, I can’t claim taxi fare for being late in the morning.
The thing is, I’m usually sleepy in the morning and early afternoon. But I become awake in the late afternoon and night time. You must be wondering how did I survive with 4 hours of sleep each day. Well, I slept for 8 to 10 hours during weekends. Which I think make up for the lost sleep during the weekdays.
I keep waking up late lately. It is so bad that I have to set 2 alarm clock, 1 handphone and 1 radio to wake me up today. And it almost didn’t work until Class 95 decided to play a song by Spice Gals. Yes, their horrible music woke me up today. I doubt they will be playing Spice Gals again tomorrow morning. What am I going to do?
Well, looks like they got 1 more line to add to their complain song. This is indeed uniquely Singapore. Perhaps that is why the arts scene never really took off even when we got a nice looking durian building.
I don’t want to go into debating what is right and what is wrong. But I just want to point out something which the police and government still doesn’t understand. You can stop them from performing in public, but you can’t stop the sound from spreading in the internet.
For those who missed the performance, here is the youtube video. Enjoy.
The Complaints Choir Singapore
We get fined for almost anything Drivers won’t give chance when you want to change lane The indoors are cold, the outdoors are hot; And the humid air, it wrecks my hair Those answering machines always make you hold Only to hang up on you
When a pregnant lady gets on the train Everyone pretends to be asleep I’m stuck with my parents till I’m 35 Cause I can’t apply for HDB We don’t recycle any plastic bags But we purify our pee
*chorus: What’s wrong with Singapore? Losing always makes me feel so sore Cause if you’re not the best Then you’re just one of the rest
My oh my Singapore What exactly are we voting for? What’s not expressly permitted is prohibited
When I’m hungry at the food court, I see People chope seats with their tissue paper To the auntie staying upstairs: Your laundry’s dripping on my bed sheets Please don’t squat on the toilet seats And don’t clip your nails on MRT
Stray cats get into noisy affairs At night my neighbor makes weird animal sounds People put on fake accents to sound posh And queue up 3 hours for donuts Will I ever live till eighty five to collect CPF?
Singaporeans too kiasu! (so scared to lose) Singaporeans too kiasi! (so scared to die) Singaporeans too kiabor! (scared of their wives) Maybe we’re just too stressed out! (even the kids)
Old National Library was replaced by an ugly tunnel Singaporean men can’t take independent women People blow their nose into the swimming pool (and pee too) And fall asleep on my shoulder in the train
Singapore’s national bird is the crane (the one with yellow steel girders) Real estate agents’ leaflets clogging up my mailbox (en bloc, en bloc, en bloc, en bloc) Why can’t we be buried when we die? No one wants to climb Bukit Timah with me
There are not enough public holidays My neighbor sings KTV all night Wedding dinners never start on time My hair is always cut shorter than I want Channel 5 commercials are way too long Why do men turn bald?
At first it was to speak more mandarin Then it was to speak proper English What’s wrong with my powderful Singlish?
People sit down during rock concerts We have to pay for tap water at restaurants ERP gantries are everywhere But I can still see traffic jams on the road All the bus stops have tilted benches Cannot access playboy.com
The itchy hand me went to upgrade my iPod touch firmware to 1.1.3.
Yeap, that 1.1.3. You can tell the difference from the dock. At first I thought it would be easy to roll back to 1.1.1 and re-jail break my iPod touch. I was so so so wrong. The 1.1.2 way of downgrading to 1.1.1 doesn’t work anymore for 1.1.3. You need another method. After trying out several times, I finally found a very easy method here.
