J-Files Case# 543.534d - Profile: Agent NadNut

We have been on Agent-Nadnut's case for quite some time already and she remained as elusive as ever. Looks like it may take more than China Redbull to entice her into joining up with us. While in most cases, we adopt a clear-cut Friend-or-Foe policy i.e. if not for us, then against us, strictly no in-between grey areas. However, given the many invaluable attributes that Agent-Nadnut possesses, we have no choice but to bend our own policy in order to accomodate this prized target. Hence, since J-Files Case# 882.732, we have escalated her case to Elusively Valuable Undermining Reason and Logic (EVURL) level.

Her recent attempt to terminate Agent-J's nuts failed and we almost captured her with a ambush at POD. Agent-Nadnut is a sly one and we failed to tempt her with Booze, Sweets and Hoon Kee. She remained steadfastly defiant against our many attempts of temptation.

It was indeed unfortunate, that she made her escape from POD with the help of her sidekick, which we only came to know of recently. More will be covered on this new character in the "Others" section.

SWOP Analysis

Strength
As mentioned in the earlier case, she has many weapons under her belt. However, we recently uncovered a new weapon during our ambush which partially aided her escape. The hypnotic effect implanted into her voice has caused the various G.I.L.A. agents weak in their respective English Knees, resulting in a severe handicap during pursuit.

We have reports from Agent-66 that on top of the weapon of Hypnotic Voice, she also an expert of in the martial art of clawing. Agent-66 has personally witnessed the demise of an enemy agent shredded to pieces via Agent-Nadnut formidable claws.

Weakness
Agent-Nadnut's ferocious appetite for all things bovine was an eye opener. We were fortunate none of our agents during the ambush, was born in the year of the cow ox or our casualty count would have been disastrous.

Agent-Nadnut's affinity for cow can also be looked upon as her weakness. Perhaps if our labs can produced Redbull Steak, we would have her in our kitty very soon. So far, the closest we have gotten is the Coca-Cola Chicken proudly developed by our own Agent-Meepok. I am sure, getting from there to Redbull Steak would only be a step further.

Others
The mystery sidekick that appeared during the night of the ambush as identified as Agent-Tiger. We have yet to establish a full dossier on this character but our field agents are currently working on it. Full report will be presented as soon as all the vital information have been consolidated.

Perhaps another way of getting to Agent-Nadnut would be via Agent-Tiger? Further investigative probe is required.

Prospect
None at the moment as we have yet to maintain a successful dialogue. However, we have planted Agent-AKK with a box of Malaysian C4 for Agent-Nadnut in our attempts to hook her. Then again, should Agent-AKK consumed all of it before reaching the hands of Agent-Nadnut, then all hopes are lost.

As a precaution, we need to step up on our research on this mystery Agent-Tiger post haste!

Agent-Nadnut has proved to be a tough nut to crack. Let's hope that all the efforts and resources committed thus far will not go to waste. Good luck Gentlemen!

J-Files Case# 543.534c - Profile: Agent-AKK

For those who are new to the J-Files Case Series, please read this first.



Background
Agent-AKK was part of the KuKuehKlan who was originally a neutral organisation, until the recent Secret Agent Meeting (SAM) when she decided to align herself with the agents from Cowboy Bastion Avant de Résistance (Cowboy BAR). However, due to the vast age gap difference in philosophy, the union never came to fruition, which leaves G.I.L.A. the perfect opportunity to swoop in and poach her. Agent-J has been working on her for the past few months already under the guise of Agent-COZ (Chronicles of Z) and we are pleased to announce her pledge of allegiance to G.I.L.A. after SAM II.

However, as per Agent-66 case, the formality of this report still have to proceed, even though it is a done deal as far as recruiting her is concerned..

SWOP Analysis

Strength
Agent-AKK is an expert in the field of inter-molecular biology which would greatly benefit us in our R&D of biological weapons and counter-weapons.

On the chemistry front, she has in-depth knowledge on the usage of two very effective poisons recently identified as Vanadium Oxide Di-Ketonic Acid (VODKA) and Lithium Iodide Mono-Ethanol (LIME). More about this in the "Others" section.

Weakness
With every agent, come his/her own personal traits or signature mode of operation. Her favourite weapons of choice are the CJD (Choujidan) and SMF (Sheltered Middle Finger).

CJD can hardly be classified as a weapon for it has no power of devastation. It is however, a useful tool for escape, possibly containing Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas), temporary distracting the laughing enemy while she makes her exit.

We also question the effectiveness of SMF for while it can cause temporary blindness, it is non-lethal and can only be applied to one eye at a time. Highly inefficient in our opinion.

Others
As mentioned earlier on the poisons of  VODKA and LIME, it is unfortunate that we do not have enough of them for Agent-AKK to continue her research experiments. As such, it is recommended to G.I.L.A. POD to step up the supply of them for Agent-AKK to bring their applications to the next higher level.

Our analysis recommends that Agent-AKK should retire her CJD and perhaps introduce her to alternatives like Flying Umbrellas Can Kill U (Acronym not available at time of report).

Prospect
We have Lady Luck to thank for such a prized catch and will assign Agent-AKK under the care of Agent-COA (Chronicles of A). Obviously not a natural choice for field work, Agent-AKK is more suited in our backroom, playing a support role. With the two agents forming a partnership, we expect great achievements from them and we shall expect them to make recruit more agents of similar calibre in the very near future.

J-Files Case# 543.534b - Profile: Agent-66

For those who are new to the J-Files Case Series, please read this first.



Background
Agent-66 attended the Secret Agent Meeting (SAM) when I first met her. She was collaborating with Agent Nadnut in their attempt to terminate Agent-J's nuts. Fortunately, their plan was foiled when they were ambushed at POD and Agent-66 lost all her balls.

Despite her defeat, her good showing was nonetheless held in high regards for after all, she was up against Agent-J, who is a very accomplished agent with few equals in his field. From that encounter, Agent-J was able to convert Agent-66 allegiance to G.I.L.A.. However, as per proper protocol, she must still be subjected to the required process of candidate screening. Hence the formality of this report.

SWOP Analysis

Strength
Agent-66's physical attributes in itself is a lethal weapon. The endless legs proved to be an effective weapon terminating enemy agents' nuts from an extended distance. She would have succeeded in her last attempt on Agent-J had the latter not had lightning-quick reflexes to dodge the attack.

Our labs also managed to obtain her vocal sample and it proved she is quite versatile with her ability to change her persona via her voice alone. A vocal chameleon if you would call it. While her vocal sample portrayed her as one persona, here is the transcript of her other persona with a simple manipulation of her voice.

Agent-66 has also shown her tenacity as far as the tolerance for alcohol is concerned and is able to drink her opponents under the table. However this aspect also proved to be her weakness which will be covered in the next section.

Weakness
Agent-66 strength in the alcohol department also proved to be her weakness as she is prone to be overwhelmed, should the intensity of it go beyond her control. Even more so if green apples and/or chocolate are involved.

Speaking of chocolate, Agent-66 was successfully converted to G.I.L.A. with the help of Agent-Teuscher. The Swiss was too much of a temptation that Agent-66 crumbled without even a struggle. We will have to work on this when she reports for duty on Day 00.

Others
Agent-66's secret weapon of assassination, the Tequila Chocolate Ball (TCB-12) backfired on her during the last assassination attempt resulting in the loss of all her balls.

Our labs experts reviewed that as a case-study and derived the following formula that summarises the case effectively:

Alcohol + Chocolate + Agent-66 = Gone

Prospect
By far, a formidable chiobu of model-ish attributes. Agent-66 will blend well into embassies, consulates and other environments of high society. However given her apparently weakness in alcohol and chocolate, much field training is needed. Perhaps, we may have to include Poser Training Modules (PTM) for her at Thumper Academy and School of Balaclava.

J-Files Case# 543.534a - Profile: Agent-BB210

For those who are new to the J-Files Case Series, please read this first.



Background
I chance about this candidate in the western part of SGP. She is currently working undercover as a Human Resource Executive. My field agent's findings revealed that she is currently tracking down a criminal (Codename: Finance Queen) currently under the Witness Protection Program of the Judiciary Department. In other words, there is no access to this person via the legal channels as FQ is currently under the protection of the Gahmen.

Agent-BB210's strategy is impressive. By day, Agent-BB210 is a HR executive but by night, she has full access to all personnel files of the enemy organisation in order to uncover the true identity of FQ. After which, FQ shall be terminated.

SWOP Analysis

Strength
We have subjected her to the Hogwarts House Test and her results showed that she is Brave, Loyal, Smart, Honest and True. Just the ideal traits that we look for in an agent.

We have also come to know that she has psychic powers to summon the people around to do her bidding. Certainly an asset when it comes to mind-control and brain-washing of the enemy.

Weakness
Agent-BB210 has an adverse reaction to rain that would render her totally powerless. Her immune system seemed quite sensitive to the change in climatic temperature which is an indication that she is ill-suited for  traveling assignments in the temperate countries.

Her inability to master the heels also meant that she will not be able to harness the potential of using heels as a lethal weapon that has proved to be very effective against the enemy for all our female agents.

OthersAgent-BB210 passed me a coding device presumably belonging to the enemy which may contain vital information beneficial to our Intelligence department. Perhaps it was my vast experience during my day in Counter-Intelligence that I was able to successfully unlock the device. Click picture* to see the documented archive of the unlocking process.

Prospect
Obviously a very intelligent person but perhaps not ready for field assignments yet. Will be an asset in the Intelligence Department and also recommend Agent-Hitomi to personally train her in the handling of the Heels, which is a pre-requisite for all female agents to pass the BHHP (Basic Heels Handling Proficiency) test.

Voice Blog - Talking About Potato


Another Jay-Cast in Ch1na on the Eve of Christmas' Eve. All on account of my deep friendship with Pam that I had to miss Christmas back in Singapore again. Still, I think it was worth the little sacrifice just to be able to be at the wedding reception in person. Instead, I wish to offer my apologies for not being to spend more time with you while we were both in Singapore. A big regret for me for not allocating enough time to be in Singapore. I hope you would be kind and understanding to forgive me for that.

Anyway, long audio blog this time with lotsa stuff, including a very lame but cute joke told to me by Daphne from Wala Wala circa 1995.

Enjoy.

Senses Meme (Part 5) - Smell

The title of this blog entry reminded me of one of my favourite movies - "Scent Of A Woman", starring Al Pacino. The sense of smell is perhaps the strongest of my 5 senses as I have a very sensitive nose. I can detect and differentiate a lot of different smells both pleasant and unfortunately unpleasant as well. Did you know that if you lose the ability to smell, you will also lose the ability to taste?

Anyway, coming back to the "scent of a woman". Yup, I want to talk about fragrances i.e. Parfum, Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette, Eau de Cologne and Splash Cologne.

I remember being 15 when I put on my first fragrance. Nothing fanciful. Just a modest Eau de Toilette by Gatsby and I remembered buying it from Oriental Emporium on the second floor of Holland Shopping Centre (Holland Village), where House of Lim handicrafts is occupying now.

Then, I graduated to my first "non-supermarket" fragrance. It was an Aramis and I was in JC1. Cost me a bomb back then as it was pretty expensive by student standards. Fortunately, a bottle was able to last me about a year and so it really ain't that bad if you amortised it over 12 months.

I also remembered my first "fragrance disaster". It was a Thursday morning after swimming PE class in ACS Barker Road. We were in ACJC then and so after swimming and the subsequent shower, we changed back into our school uniforms and I accidentally over-dosed on the Aramis. I forgot I sprayed already and I applied it a second time. As the chartered bus is packed, my overpowering Aramis must have gagged the back half of the bus all the way back to Dover Close East. Big mistake and an important lesson learnt that day.

As there are so many difference fragrance out there in the market, I made it a point to try a different one every time though I have an affinity towards the fruity and the flora. From the first Aramis to Tuscany to Armani to Boss to Obsession to Egosite and countless more. Last check? Bvlgari Aqva. The only time when I stuck to one fragrance repeatedly is when it was the then-girlfriend's favourite and so for those who have been long time friends of mine, you would have guessed that it's Christian Dior Fahrenheit and Davidoff Cool Water. Separate times of my life, of course.

Enough about me and let's move on the scent of the woman. Like Achilles' heel or Kryptonite on Superman, the sense of smell can also be my greatest weakness. I am not talking about just taking and spraying any perfume off the shelf to get me hooked. I am talking about that intoxicating and totally mesmerising scent arising from the perfect mix of a woman and her perfume in the perfect dosage.

Take me! Enslave me!

Different perfume reacts differently with different people. That's why, you can have a scent that smell so good on a woman, and absolutely horrid on another. Some can have the scent linger throughout the day, while other last as short as 30 minutes using the same bottle.

Then there is the art of figuring out the perfect dosage. There is breath-taking and there is breath-taking. The difference? One takes your breath away while the other simply asphyxiates you.

The rule of thumb is that if you have people coming up to you and ask what fragrance you are using, you have used too much. The fragrance of a woman can be used as a tool of seduction. It draws the guy closer to the woman in order for him to continue to soak in her little piece of olfactory heaven. However, the natural scent of the woman should be the main ingredient of this nasal drug for after all, the perfume smells the same everywhere on its own. It is the woman's body bouquet that elevates her above the rest.

Never overdo the fragrance. After all, the guy want to smell you and not Jean Paul Gautier.

So. To the good people out there, what is your scent?

Vanna: But sometimes you happened to be out for an extended period of time are concern about the scent (or rather the lack of) towards the end of the day.
In that situation, perhaps it would be wiser to carry the bottle along and have a refresher spritz somewhere in the middle of the day.

nadnut: ckOne is nice but when it first launched, I refused to buy it coz the whole Orchard Road was smelling like ckOne due to an overly aggressive marketing efforts by all the shopping malls.

yah.. I also like Ckone and Estee Lauder's Pleasure. But both were too 'popular' when they were first launched. Other favs include Issey Miyaki, Davidoff Cool Water and Polo Raphl. Currently... Friend's nose allergy to perfumes made me forgo them all. haaa!! The bottles are languishing in my cabinet... sigh...
I really dislike people who do excessive spraying. It clogs up my nostrils and I will start gagging...

Actually the thing about BO is that if it is mild, they can be resolved with the application of anti-perspirant. For more serious case, a trip to the doctor is definitely a good idea.

Senses Meme (Part 4) - Taste

As I have mentioned that good food is nothing without good company. As such, I shall, in this particular blog entry, assume that good company is a already a given.

I love food.

When it comes to enjoying a good meal, I let my tongue have the final say rather than follow our cultural norms. You know the saying that goes

"Red meat with red wine, white meat with white wine"?

I say screw that lah. If I enjoy my pittsburgh-rare steak with a bottle of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc, who is going to stop me?

And that brings me to a story of a meal with an acquaintance here in Ch1na. He was a retired local official and I brought him to a nice steak house nearby for some excellent New York cut. So there we were chatting while waiting for the main course to arrive. In the interim, we had our apperitifs, soup and salad. Then came a basket of garlic bread and he asked for jam (as in strawberry/raspberry/grape/etc conserve) to go with the garlic bread. This was quite a shock to everyone, myself included and what followed was a slew of apologies from the waitresses that they do not have jams for the garlic bread.

Initially, I rolled my eyes and started running condescending thoughts in my head about my guest. However, after replaying the scene in my head over and over again, I started to question myself who I am to judge how garlic bread should be eaten? I mean who died and made me the next Julia Child? Eventually, I let the whole matter rest but I was still upset with my guest about that incident on another matter. There he was letting go a tirade about how lousy the restaurant was on the grounds that they do not have the simplest of jam. Then he proceeded to give me a lecture of how widely traveled he was and he would like to "teach me" about garlic bread with jam. What insolence!

To sum everything up, the food was good but I had a lousy evening coz the company was crap. I haven't contacted him since.

Coming back to the main topic, I for one, am never a person to be swayed easily by the price tag. Just because a bottle is high up in the menu, doesn't mean that it is the ideal bottle for me. However, it must also be said that probability-wise, the chances of getting the lousy wine is lower when the price is higher. Well, most of the time lah.

We have our expensive champagne under the labels of Louis Roederer Cristal, Dom Perignon, Krug etc. but somehow my all time favourite is the little-known Bruno Paillard, one of the youngest independent (read: not commercialised... yet) Champagne Houses. Very yummy bubbly but without the over-the-top price tag, signifying that I am paying mostly for what's inside the bottle and not what's outside. Purists may be appalled by my selection for this is one Champagne House that has to buy grapes from other vineyards instead of growing the grapes on their own. Like most other mainstreamed labels, Bruno Paillard, is also a blended champagne using Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. As such, with that and without the "pedigree status" of the having their own grapes, the Bruno Paillard, takes quite a beating and is placed quite low in the pecking order.

However, as long as I like it. It is all that matters to me.

p.s. I first got to know Bruno Paillard, in a restaurant in Pasir Panjang Village called The Wharf more than 10 years ago before the restaurant closed its doors a few years later. However, I was presently surprised to see the reapperance of this bubbly at Les Amis outlets e.g. The Canteen and Sebastien's Bistrot. While the restaurants offers the champagne on their menu, I was delighted to discover that the wine shop attached to Sebastien's Bistrot (Greenleaf Road), sells them by the bottle. Check it out if you have the chance!

Senses Meme (Part 3) - Touch

I have always love the cold. It just the sudden drop in temperature (like getting out of a warm car into the cold night) that I hate.

I remember how during the school holidays when we were kids, how we used to stick ourselves inside the hot sauna, getting ourselves all heated up and then dashed out, plunging head first into the swimming pool. The gush of chilly refreshness engulfing your entire body in that split second is beyond words. Ahh... the good old days. Ahh.... choo!

Now what's that about hating to adjust to sudden drop in temperatures? Well, swimming pool water in Singapore is 24 degrees Celsius at best and so I won't count running from sauna to pool exactly drastic change in temperature, now would we? I mean it's not like I run out and start rolling in the snow, right? Just normal Singapore outdoor swimming pool water lah. Piece of cake!

After being away from Singapore for quite a number of years already, I am having a hard time getting used to the barmy weather back home that leaves you hot and sticky. On the other hand, I don't envy the weather over at Vandice's, Lynne's or Heatherina's respective places where it is probably sub-zero temperature at this time of the year.

Even Pam's, Vysia's or Faythxz's warmer weather (10 degrees Celsius) is a pain in the ass as that would mean that I have to switch to long sleeves. Damn leceh. If it is slightly about 10 degrees, still ok. I can tahan wearing a vest on top of my short sleeved polo t-shirt. So perhaps now peeps like AKK and Sheena would understand why I didn't feel cold the last time when we were inside Eski-Bar. It's just a pub with a strong aircon lah.

Weather at my place is like Hong Kong due to our proximity and it currently averages around 15 to 20 degrees. Just nice! A good indicator of the chilling weather is that you gradually find yourself getting harder and harder to wake up each morning. You are just so comfortable under the warm blankets!

Piping hot food also gets to me as I am always the last guy to finish a bowl of soup noodles. I remembered during my NS BMT days where I always asked for half a cup of milo instead of a full cup, so that I could run over to the tap and fill up the rest with tap water in order to cool it down. That way, I would be able to gulp down my breakfast in under 5 minutes as required by the bladdy chao Corporal.

Now thinking back, is my intolerance to high temperature an indicator of my low threshold for pain?

I wonder.

Talking about pain, there is the BIG pain and there is the SMALL pain. Big pain would be stuff like injuries, wounds, needles, etc. Small pain would be like ant bite, bee sting, poke eye, scraped knee (ang moh ones) etc. I realised that I can be quite the warrior when it comes to big pain but ironically a real puss when it comes to the small ones.

What is brown and 360 degrees?

It's a stupid game that we played when we were back in ACJC. Someone would go to an unsuspecting victim and asked the above question. The question would be answered when the prankster reached for the victim's nipple and twist it a full 360. While doing it, he has to say "Whistle and I will let go."

The first time I kena, I failed miserably with the whistling part (I can't whistle with a twisted nipple!) which led me to the next question:

What is brown on one side and purple the other?

Ouch.

Senses Meme (Part 2) - Hearing

Music has been a big part of my life when I grow up learning to play the organ (The instrument lah! Oh wait, the MUSICAL instrument lah!). Granted that I have all but forgotten how to play, the ability to read music and the dexterity which attributed to my "magic fingers" fortunately remained.

I learned to play the clarinet in secondary school which I then graduated to the saxophone when I was Sec 4 (all because of the saxophone solo in Careless Whisper). The transition was easy as clarinet and saxophone are very similar instruments, right down to the fingering. Perhaps, it was these 6 years of playing the clarinet and the sax that I am able to flip my thumb to the back of my hand unaided but I digress.

Anyway, because of my early exposure to music, I listened to a wide range of stuff although I have yet to full appreciate grunge, heavy metal and rap. Still, I get by with the rest of the genres out there.

Speaking of listening to music, my walkman would be with me everywhere I go. From the days of the cassette tape walkman to the current crop of portable CDs and MP3s players, my ears are plugged in all the time. Strangely, I never did like MD players. Hmm....

I remembered driving my mom's car when I just gotten my driver's license. Now my mom is your classic technophobe to the extend that she refuses to install a proper FM tuner/cassette deck in the Honda Accord. Instead, she reluctantly agreed to have the bladdy AM radio that came free with the car if not for the fact that it would have left a gaping hole in the car console. Problem is that there isn't any decent stations on AM frequencies and the closest I got was RTM Radio 4. Even with that, I got deafening blank sounds of static when the station shuts down at midnight. Grrr.....

And so I took it upon myself to buy two mini battery-operated speakers (anybody remembers Cost-Plus at Scotts Shopping Centre?) and lotsa blue-tack. Finally, with a bit of wiring and my walkman, I finally have music in the car! However, my mom was totally flabbergasted with my flash of ingenuity as the dashboard became a mesh of wires running all over the place. Apparently my "a bit" of wiring turned to be "a bit too much" instead. Well, I never said that I was an accomplished Ah Beng Car Stereo Zhng Specialist, did I? Well, after getting my head chewed off for my little pet project, I was forced to removed everything after a week of bliss in the car.

Sigh, the days of being a teenager.

Speaking of being a teenager, everybody wanted to be a DJ at that age and so I signed up with an events company as a part-time roadie. Granted that I won't have to opportunity to get on stage under the spotlights, I was contended to just be there and soaking up the atmosphere. Then on those "less important" gigs, we would occasionally get the chance to get behind the turntables and spin a couple of vinyls.

"Raise your hands in the air and wave them like you don't care!"

I am no stranger to loud music being a roadie and all. Probably that's why my sense of hearing is on and off these days.

Senses Meme (Part 1) - Sight

To think I would still have perfect eyesight today had it not been for the "A"-Levels.

I was grew up under very strict upbringing where freedom as a kid was almost non-existent. (Maybe that's why I am so warped now. :P ) My life as a kid revolved around a timetable that detailed exactly what I should be doing at what time. Very regimental. Even when it's the school holidays, it's also the same. The dreaded timetable telling me when is play time, when to studying, when is art class etc.

Anyway, a glaring big part of the timetable that is missing from it is that there is no TV on school days. Quite sad lor when you are back in school the next day and you are clueless to your friends' discussion about the TV shows that they watched the day before.

Well, it's been like that since K1 to JC2 and I have had perfect eyesight all the way. It was nearing to the A-Level exams when my studying started to stretch past midnight. According to my timetable, I was supposed to be studying from 8pm to 12am. However, I would usually extend it on my own to 2am.

The stroke of midnight is routinely the time I would stop and take a break from the books and there was this one night I decided to switch on the TV, albeit secretly, just to see what's available at the hour.

God bless RTM2 where all the comedies were showing on weekday nights. Shows like Four On The Floor (Tue), The Dom Deluise Show (Wed), The Gary Shandling Show (Thu), The Benny Hill Show (Sat - TV3). These are not the mainstreamed comedy sitcoms that we usually see during prime time on SBC. These are the really good stuff. They are all half-hour sketches much like today's Saturday Night Live or MadTV.

My personal all-time favourite was  The Gary Shandling Show where even the live audience were sometimes involved in the sketch.

In a word, I was hooked.

And thus started my illicit relationship with my TV everyday at the stroke of midnight. I can't turn on the living room lights coz that would wake everybody up and I also had to turn the volume down so low that I was practically sitting right in front of the TV in order to hear anything.

It wasn't before long that it was time to sit for my A-Level preliminaries. So there I was in the middle of the exam hall and I realised something strange. The big clock that the school placed in the middle of the stage was a blur. I couldn't tell the time from where I was sitting. Yes...

... My eyes spoil liao.

I guessed I never realised the extend of my loss until I was offered the RSAF Pilot's scholarship. It was to be a 6-year contract with an 8-year bond. Like every hot-blooded male, I dreamed of being a commercial airliner pilot at the end of that. Oh yah, the movie Top Gun was all the rage back then too. :P

However, it was not to be as I failed my eyesight test during my medical examination and hence POOF! goes my scholarship. I do have to give thanks to the nice people at the medical centre for not giving up on me so easily. I was in and out of that eye-examination room at least 6 times, before we mutually agreed to throw in the towel. I was offered the Air Defense Artillery Officer scholarship as an alternative but nah.....  the idea of getting paid to 打飞机 was just not my cup of tea.

Then it was NS but I didn't bother about wearing glasses during my 2½ year stint. Nothing worthwhile to see anyway. Then it was contact lenses when I got to NTU coz by then, there were A LOT to see. hur hur hur.

I remembered my first pair of contact lens being RGP lens and lasted all of 45 minutes before it fell out in the middle of a taxi queue at Far East Plaza. Curse my rubbing hands!!

The replacement pair lasted 9 years though.

Q: Why do women rub their eyes when they wake up?
A: Coz they have no balls to scratch.

Homecoming (16 to 21 Dec 2005)

The time is nigh as I shall be making the trip home to catch up with family and friends.

As usual, my time sheet will be put up again but let me apologise in advance for the scarcity of available slots due to

a) the shortness of this particular trip and
b) I got a lot of "Pre-bookings" since my last trip in September. (I very Ang Pai, can?)

Anyway, for those whom I may miss this trip, fret not. I am coming back for Chinese New Year this coming January/February as I am canceling my Las Vegas trip to come home. Besides, the next Las Vegas trip is in July.

So without further ado, I declare my time sheet opened. Same password as per last September.

If you have forgotten the password or if you are new to this, drop me an email or IM and I will send to you.

I want to see if you're a looker but I don't want you to get too depressed after seeing me. So how?!
Well, I'm just kidding. Hahaha! I'd like to see you in person, but I think I'm too shy for that. Aww. I'm a hermit.
