Ah Fry Singapore Association Of Low Traffic Bloggers

Here's the thing, ever since I returned to Singapore 2 years ago, I kinda lost my blogging mojo.

I thought coming back to QQLand, I would be able to get back some of that momentum but somehow the workload does seem to allow me to do so.

I am a professional blogger in the sense that I blog only during office hours. wakakakaakak

Come home liao, I ish a nuah slug with 1,001 distractions to do anything but blog.

As a result, it is no surprise to see my visitor hits taking a beating and sliding down steadily.

Well, not that I really cared anyway.

So, I have decided.

I am going to join Ah Fry Singapore Association Of Low Traffic Bloggers! *Throw confetti and steal badge to paste on my right widget column*

Speaking of Blogger Association, I am suddenly reminded of something else. Show of hands who still remember the Association of Bloggers (Singapore)?

Here's a few links to jog your memory. Enjoy.

p.s. Eh. Why I not on Ah Fry's Poison List ah? iHurted.

Rain Cuffed


Singapore was hit by another flood again and it is starting to get embarrassing for the Gahmen who has earlier dismissed it as a freak accident of nature that occur once every 50 years.

So what is the score since Nov 2009? 5?

Last weekend, we were hit with another bloody downpour (We are going to have a Waste Water Campaign real soon) and a certain Mr Shafie Goh from Lianhe Wanbao was on assignment to cover the event.

He was at Bukit Timah where the flooding occur and, by looking at the pictures, he appeared to be at Maplewoods (just further up from Tan Chong Motors) where he was detained and cuffed by a policeman.

According to Shafie, he was there minding his own business and taking photos before a policeman who was earlier sitting in the police car came out to stop him from taking photos. When he refused to comply, he was cuffed and taken away to the side before being released an hour later.

According to the police, Shafie was taken away as they felt that he was endangering himself during the process of taking pictures and/or perhaps obstructing police work and/or traffic.

It was a case of his word against the police.

I find it hard to figure out on a few points.
  1. There was not much traffic given that there was a heavy flood going on.
  2. I don't think Shafie was endangering himself in anyway. It was just a flood. Floods at Bukit Timah are nothing new and has been like that for decades, I remembered walking in almost waist deep water from Sixth Avenue to Barker Road during my student days to go to school. I, for one can attest, that there is nothing dangerous about it lest you are stupid enough to be right at the big canal running alongside between Dunearn Road and Bukit Timah Road.
  3. Obstructing police work? Er... I think he was nowhere near the police and that the nearest one was sitting inside the police car before he came out and cuffed him. So what? Obstructing his view har?
  4. Taking pictures of sensitive nature? I think the nearest sensitive sites would have been some Ministers' home and the Rifle Range on the other side of the canal, neither which is near Maplewoods where Shafie was doing his own stuff.

That said, why the gangster tactics?

The way the police handled the situation cannot be explained and I for one am keen to find out how the police is going to recover from this PR booboo.

I wait with baited breath.

LongKang


We have had a streak of nasty storms in Singapore recently that our Gahmen unapologetically claimed that this type of freak storms only happens once every 50 years.

Within a few months and a mega foot in the mouth, we were hit big time again and they blamed it on vegetation in the drains resulting in poor drainage.

Now our PM say to give up all hope of no flooding evar.

Enough of making excuses already.

I found this longkang sibeh tok kong. The above video clip had to be shot with high-speed film as a result of the speed of drainage.

Yes, it is THAT fast!

Our dear Yacob-boy need to take a lesson and watch this.

Sleeping Under The Stars


I stay quite high up in a condo apartment which gives me a great view of the outside, albeit mostly old dirty sooty factories.

So there I was this morning, brushing my teeth and looking out the window and I spotted this couple sleeping on the rooftop barely clothed.

As you can see, it's really hard to tell but when I zoomed in using my Lumix's 3X optical zoom, it turned out to be just a couple of half naked guys sharing a straw mat. *sian half*

The weather recently has really been crazy with temperatures breaching 37 degree Celsius just the other day.

So while I can understand these guys sleeping on the rooftop but er... the rooftop a bit DIRTY right???!!

Floating Bottle


See the bottle floating in mid-air? Spotted this while having dinner in Bangkok.

Make a guess then go to the comments section to see what that is all about.

What it is actually, is that there is an invisible string (think thin fishing line) tied to the bottle and suspending it in mid-air.

What it does is that the bottle, filled with water, acts as a counter-weight to keep the door closed at all times as that door leads to the kitchen.

It is an ingenious and cost effective solution to that of the auto-closing mechanism.

Smart!
