New Keyboard, New Mouse

August 31, 2007 0

Yesterday I bought a set of wireless keyboard and mouse. Miss those days when I could type by placing my keyboard on my lap. Used to have this Philips-brand infra-red keyboard that was so fun to use. But it died on me 2 years later…

I was shown this clip of a 6-year-old British girl, Connie Talbot, singing “Ben” for the reality contest, Britain’s Got Talent. Absolutely beautifully expressive voice you would never expect from a person her age. No one can resist the charming girl, who one of the…

Today I received 3 calls from 3 separate car sales agents. First from Toyota, which I test-drove on 9 Aug. Second from Suzuki, which I test-drove last week. Third from Chevrolet, which I already booked. Coincidence? Well, it’s 3 days till the end of the…

Why Spam

August 28, 2007 0

Sometimes I just don’t understand why most of the spam email messages have to do with the bedroom activities. I think the spam industry is getting it all wrong. I would think they would have better chances of success if the spam messages are related…

My First Car

August 26, 2007 3

Our search ends here. This morning I signed for the purchase of my very first car, the Chevrolet Optra Magnum. The least-expected decision is a result of a latest market situation of a COE price drop, as I had been inclining to get the Nissan…

Mayenne has breathed 3 full months of Earth’s air. Today we brought her to the PD for more injections. We found that she is slightly heavier for her age (6.3kg, 75th percentile) while height is within the 50th percentile (60cm). It seems we have been…

I was shooting for a wedding solemnisation 2 weeks back, and at the event, there were 2 other family guests carrying the new Nikon DSLR models, D40 and D80. Not to mention a dozen other guests whipping their own compact cameras to steal some memorable…

Honda again created an award-winning advertising campaign, this time dishing out all the vintage models from motobikes to cars to racers to speedboats – and an air balloon. The full 2-min commercial: Here’s the 9-minute making of the commercial. It really achieves its objective of…

Consume and be consumed

I was driving my parent’s car this weekend to my wife’s friend’s baby’s first month party. Looking at all the vehicles on the expressway made me wonder how much petrol was used to run each and every of these machines. Every single vehicle that runs…

Nowadays when friends meet, they asked about things that you don’t recall telling them. Then you realise that those things they mentioned can be found in your blog. Then sometimes when you talk to friends, you tend to miss out things that you wrote in…

Ode to Dee-Seventy

August 19, 2007 2

Some things grow with you. Some things grow in you. The Nikon D70 is my first digital SLR after I gave up SLR photography for a good 6 years. It helped me re-establish my interest in capturing images. The biggest difference, in my opinion, between…

Joie de Vivre

My dearest wife has finally started her very own blog. She did mention that she wanted to keep her blog private, but, well, it’s too good to hide it from the world. Besides, it’s not as if my blog has lots of readership. Anyway, it’ll…

Nationalistic

August 10, 2007 0

Mayenne is looking more and more like a boy. Some relative told us that if the first baby girl looks like a boy, then the second one will most likely to be one. We celebrated National Day yesterday my Mum’s brother (Uncle Robert) house. Everyone…

More Test Drive

August 9, 2007 0

Today is Singapore’s 42nd National Day, a public holiday, so I went for a few test drives at Ubi. My parents came over to my house at about 9am. We instructed Mum a few things before we left her alone with Mayenne and the rest…

My Life Stood Still

August 5, 2007 6

… for Princess Mayenne. She got cranky again. Now she cannot sleep unless being carried. And even after we put her on the bed, she would get upset. Even the feeds are hit-and-miss: she would cry for milk but when we gave her, she would…

Not only is she talented in playing the organ, she plays it with style! I like the way she performs as if she is dancing on the organ. I wonder if Mayenne can be half as talented when she turns 4. Applause!!!
