I love to look at the ads during Christmas season. Christmas is the time when the ads companies gets creative and come out with lots of interesting ads to wish customer a merry christmas. The beer companies are well known in doing this. It’s nice to take a break at the end of the year and let the creative juice flow.

But the best season greetings ads this year isn’t from the beer companies. Instead, it is from RSAF. I saw this at a bus stop a few days ago.

Fighter Jets escorting Santa? Haha. Good one guys.

Merry Christmas everyone.

2 more days to christmas, I’m glad that I won’t be having a blue Christmas.

Elvis Presley – Blue Christmas

I’ll have a blue christmas without you
I’ll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green christmas tree
Wont be the same dear, if you’re not here with me

And when those blue snowflakes start falling
That’s when those blue memories start calling
You’ll be doin all right, with your christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue blue blue christmas

Youll be doin all right, with your christmas of white,
But I’ll have a blue, blue christmas

Let’s play photo hunt with the picture below. Can you spot the difference?

OK, I guess it’s obvious that the wire is missing on the right. I just got the wireless mighty mouse today. Paid $8 for it because I use my Citibank credit card reward points to redeem a $100 discount voucher. Cool. Thank you Citibank.

Anyone interested in buying a secondhand wired mighty mouse? Used for 3 weeks only.

Look ma! No wires. 😀

I’ve always wonder how would it be like to have a white christmas here in Singapore. All we get here is rain, rain and more rain.

Love this oldie by Bing Crosby. Hope you like it too.

Bing Crosby – White Christmas

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten,
and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

The cab was normal. Just that the cab meter is making me uncomfortable.

Taking cab from home to office use to be around $17 during the morning peak hours. Now its $21. That’s a 24% increase. Bloody daylight robbery. And we are talking about smooth traffic. I don’t dare to think how high the fare will go if I’m stuck in the peak hour jam. The 35% peak hour surcharge is too much already.

I think I’ll either have to wake up early or find a new job that is near my house. Taking cab is too painful for the wallet.

The strangest thing is that the media said that the Taxi drivers were the ones who asked for the fare hike. I haven’t seen taxi drivers who wanted the hike actually. Look, increasing the fare will only make less people taking cab. End of the day, you still take home roughly the same amount of money.

Watched midnight movie with gf after the ping.sg gathering. Since it’s pass midnight, we have no choice but to take cab home. But the good thing is, all the cabs are queuing up and you get to select your preferred brand.

Uncomfortable cab and shitty cab were the first to have the fare hike. Ass n smarty cab just started the fare hike recently. So we decided to take other brand of cab.

Silvercab is nice. For now….
