Singles Singled Out?

I heard a radio commercial this morning on my way to work. It's on mattresses (can't say which brand).


Maybe.... just maybe... this mattress company signed a $200 dollar deal with the Ministry of Pathetic Birth Rate. You see, these mattresses are probably incorporated with Micro Particle Aphrodisiac Emitting Chips... you know where I'm going with this heh heh.

Maybe not. Maybe got free Tongkat Ali sachets.

Please Get Well

Award-winning director Yasmin Ahmad suffered a stroke and is recuperating after a neurosurgical procedure.

I've never met her, but I've cried and laughed at every one of her TV ads and films which always revolves around family ties, values, real world and truth about life.

This ad, about a single father and her daughter, moved me to tears before I could say the word Daddy.

There are also funny ones like this one. Genuine, unpretentious and innocent.

And this one.

She's just brilliant. Our country needs more smart folks like her.

And I have this little secret. I dream to be in her films one day. NO... no... I dream to BE her one day.
But I'm stuck in a science lab, washing test tubes. Tiu.

Go Go

When I tell D I need to go poo, he becomes serious and says," OK, GO GO QUICK"

A couple of cases. Old folks say that a child's fever indicates growth spurt and brain development.

After Daniel had high fever, he could write his name ... just like that! About 3 guided helpings, off he went! D-a-n-i-e-l C-h-o-n-g! Ya ya maybe he should already be writing an essay by now but my little boy can write his name!! (will insert glorious exhibit soon)

Speaking of education, I fall into the percentage of parent who work in Singapore and reside in JB. Your life changing question is, where do you send your kids to for a good education. 99% says Singapore school. This will probably be the hardest decision we have to make. Will he be stressed out? Will he be able to get up at 4am? Will he sleep in the bus like the rest? Will he be able to cope with this semi-hectic life at a young age? Are children tougher than we think they are? ARE BABIES BORN FOR LABOUR?!

Honestly, I think our education system is alright. It's enough, it's not Cambridge, but it's ok. What we're lacking are good teachers. Good wholesome ol' fashioned role models who teach us about books and life. Maybe there are still some good teachers left, but there ain't enough. And most importantly, good MALE teachers. The ones who will influence many lives of young males, who will lead our nation in one way of another. Attitude,baby, gotta have the right attitude.

Another coincidence case, which I notice. I don't know how long has it been going on, but my nose will bleed a little before an impending menstruation. Apparently some women experience this. How bizarre!

Mad World

Adam Lambert's rendition of Mad World.

Never heard of this song, but I'm hooked on it now.

We do live in a mad world.

Officially An Addict

THIS is my favourite now!

I also (finally) completed these as a wedding gift. My new obsession with free-motion stitching!

Other stuff I made in the name of obsession.

Watched Transformers too. It's entertaining wat, why is it getting bad reviews, and Shia is in there (hot), Megan Fox also (HOT HOT) and Josh Duhamel (HOT HOT TO THE MAX). D sat through the movie and watched intently. So I'd give it a thumbs up!

Wow, I'm amazed how my weekends are packed.
