Singapore Idol

Heard 2 newscasters, not 1, on 938 LIVE

who read Mirza as Mizra. Look very similar, don't they?

can sing better than Jonathan,

even if it's just marginally. Just as Taufik

sang better than Sylvester.

If this is not dé‧jà vu, then what is?

Can't Give Lift To People To Bus-Stop

We now have bus-lane


watching over the bus-lanes during their operational hours to catch unauthorised vehicles.

We can't give people a lift to bus-stops when the bus-lanes are in operation. Or else we'd be shot. These wardens are armed with a digital camera cum a tripod. Not to mention the usual notebook and pen, for taking down the butt numbers of vehicles that eat into the bus-lane after passing the warden.

The fine is a hefty $130.

I kena before.

My appeal against the fine was unsuccessful. The only good thing that came out from my appeal was they changed the fat, solid yellow line

into a dotted one.

This helps vehicles filtering to the left lane to turn left.

Car Security System

Cars nowadays come equipped with car alarm cum security systems

that are getting more advanced. So advanced an "armed" car can talk to you in an "intimidating" tone if you were so much as to go or just pass by "near" it, let alone touch it. The car would tell you something like "KEEP CLEAR! YOU ARE TOO CLOSE TO THIS VEHICLE!"

Wouldn't it be nice if a vehicle as such can be armed with a flame thrower

to deter the would-be-assailants of its passenger(s)?

There are amored BMW

cars that come equipped with flame-throwers. Having 70-75mm bullet-resistant glass is not enough. If someone dares go near a vehicle as such, he would be literally torched.

Then there's the pesky parking attendant

that comes issuing you a summon when you either don't or least expect one.

How would you like to have your car equipped with a laser-emitting device

to zap these buggers?

6 Random Facts About Myself

I got tagged by See Fei to reveal 6 random facts about myself. So here goes:

1. I love to watch movies like Star Wars,

Star Trek, Matrix, etc.

2. I don’t dislike animals. I'm just not crazy about them. I don’t even mind stroking furry animals like cats, dogs, hamsters. But usually I don’t as I find it a hassle having to wash my hands afterwards. It's a great pity that Steve Irwin, aka Crocodile Hunter,

died after getting stung by a stingray. He's only 44. He's one of my favorite TV personalities. His sudden death which shocks and saddens the whole world, is a stark reminder that although we may be able to tame certain wild animals, we certainly have no dominion over them. In fact, we have lost dominion for a very, very long time since the fall of man.

3. I like to listen to all kinds of music as long as it’s not too heavy and noisy. (Anyhow, one man's music is another man's noise.) Songs from the 80s, classical music, English pop, Mandarin pop, Cantonese pop, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Bach, Strauss, etc.

4. I love cars but can’t afford playing with them at all. Every month broke because of car. Only cars I can afford to play with are toy cars. One of the main differences between a boy and a man is the price of their toys.

5. I like to read. I used to read a lot when I was studying in Ngee Ann Poly from 1989 to 1993. Always used the journey on the MRT to read one novel after another. Now I hardly have time to read. Even have difficulties scanning thru TODAY newspaper from cover to cover, let alone reading all the articles.

6. I like peace and quiet. That proves I not very old yet. Old folks are known to be afraid of peace and quiet. They prefer noise and sounds to silence. I guess that’s why all the new HDB 2-room studio apartments meant primarily for senior citizens are located next to busy, noisy roads.

A Car With No Strings Attached

I want a car.
But I don’t want to pay for it.
I don’t want to pay for its downpayment.
I don’t want to pay for its instalment payments.
I don’t want to pay for its road tax.
I don’t want to pay for its motor insurance.
I don’t want to pay for its petrol.
I don’t want to pay for its season parking.
I don’t want to pay for its coupon parking.
I don’t want to pay for the parking fines and summons issued to it.

The Chery QQ (Made in China)

looks suspiciously like the Chevrolet Spark (Made in Korea),

which evolved from Daewoo D'Arts.

Chery QQ has overtaken Chevrolet Spark to launch in Singapore.

Why do people still want to get caught up in traffic jams

driving to work every morning when it’s faster to take the MRT?
