(My ex-Temasek Poly Design Course Mates – since 1997!)
I was browsing Joanne’s Picassa this morning and I saw the photos of the Mega VC Gathering. "VC" stands for Visual Communication – a course where I met many of my buddies. It is so heart-warming browsing these photos online. I love what Joanne wrote in her captions.
Can see a couple familiar faces – people who I always want to meet and say "hi" – There are Zen, Bread, Joey, Dominic (my BMT friend), Sabrina, Vivian, Kailing and Sherry. Of course, the usual gang – Ernest, Randy, Boy, Christina, Diane and Martin! (My lovely boy from Tokyo!)
I was so moved by the smiles and joys in all these snapshots. It was such a great and meaningful reunion!
I should take that extra effort (plus the cost) to come back for this reunion. At least I can fill in more SPACE for Class VC1A. (where is the others like Fartly, Ash, Lynette, Dione, Juliana etc?)
Thanks Joanne for uploading these photos on your Picassa. Thanks Randy for calling me to invite me too! And Diane for emailing me reminders on this event too! Any chance I get to have the MSN contacts of those I marked orange here?

Okay, I say it is okay to share a pool of content. But entries? That is disgusting! That is low class!
And we are talking about being original here. I can’t believe FHM (a big international magazine) would be so less creative and careless about their content. Come on, dun you know we have both FHM UK and FHM Singapore selling in the same shop? You cannot get away with such low-class "cheats" by changing photographer’s name and address! That is stupid. And plain lazy!
Last of all, you are creating a real "contest" for your readers to take part with the promise of a REAL prize. And you used the same photos, changed the particulars and rewarded the same prize to the same batch of people! Now, which are the real entries? The Singapore Version or UK? I thought such act is illegal and against any code of conduct.
I will send this blog to FHM and MICA Singapore. I want my refunds! I want to hear their reasons.
And perhaps, my entry to FHM will be their "SNAP of the Month"!

Finally, after 4 weeks in Shanghai, Elkan and Feli left for Singapore once more (2nd time this year). It wasn’t as bad as the last one. At least this time, little Elkan has 2 uncles to play with. Yogi and Desmond coincidently were in town this week and 4 of them happened to be on the same flight back. Elkan didn’t even shed a tear this time. His parting words were "Daddy, go shopping ah, Elkan go. I love you. See you. Bye". With that, he paced in with the ice cream cup I bought for him.
(Yo Desmond, thanks for baby-sitting that litte terror on board. Haaaa…Good Luck!) ~ The house is so quiet and empty once more.
The Shanghai Science Centre is REALLY HUGE! Not only it is huge, they built a real tropical forest right inside the building! I was totally amazed by the way they showcases their stuffs. It was modern, interactive and very well-thought. We climbed and explored this indoor tropical forest. We saw people playing archery against a robot which never miss the bull-eye. And we visited many experiential zones of insects, fishes and dinosaurs. There was even a spherical dome where you get to watch a 4D-movie!
It is indeed a great place for kids and families. Even the adults are excited about it!
Found this on our way to the Shanghai Science Centre – the rumour of a new Xiang Yang Market is true! Fully aircon, (a little too clean and orderly), full of "fight-the-piracy-and-support-the-fakes" Ang Mohs and located just right beside the subway station! Haaa… this is where the fakes went – they went UNDERGROUND! Haaa…what a lucky day (07.07.07) for shoppers like me!
It was quite a big and unique tour group. 2 Shanghainese, 7 Singaporeans and 2 Hongkies. We had a hot and sweaty time at beautiful Hangzhou last weekend (30 Jun – 1st July). And my little monster is REALLY a BIG TERROR. (He terrorised all the uncles and aunties on this trip). Imagine carrying a sandbag (weigh 14kg), walking under the hot summer sun – 38 degree all day long! It is an interesting and back-breaking trip for me.
We crossed suspending trip at Dragon Well Hill, watched sunset at West Lake, spat at General Yue’s temple, last-minute bikinis and trunks shopping (for night swimming), eating famous rice dumplings at Jia Xing, shopping at Hangzhou’s fashion wholesale center and riding sedan the Chinese Way.
