Can't Sleep In Peace

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
This past weekend, was not able to take afternoon nap because of the fighter jets’ flyby.

Paya Lebar Airbase had an open house.

The F-5E and F-16 fighters made hell lot of noise.

It’s a hell of a thing to make tons of money by being a fighter pilot and being a pain in the ass of a lot of people. Okay, maybe not ass but ears.

That's probably one of the cons of living in an island state. Ear plugs must be selling well. ;p

To HS: Having to put up with noise generated by fighter jets almost everyday is definitely one of the cons of living in a place like Singapore. But we only use ear-plugs in noisy places like factories and firing range.

So far, i've not heard of people using ear plugs to drown out the sounds of fighter jets :p

prolonged exposure to loud noise can lead to hearing loss. Its a pity. the living space here is so tiny. Now there is also this grand prix thing that would go vroom vroom in our ears!

To LM: I don't mind the grand prix thing. I think the thrunderous roar of the F1 car engines sounds melodious ;) Anyway, F1 racing only happens on a few nights in a year. Whearas fighter planes fly over our heads all year long :p
