Forgetting Sarah Marshall

My initial intepretetion of the show was….hmm…who doesn’t when ya GF is hot.
Then again…HOT so what…nothing beats meeting someone who your heart can throb for..Its heart not DICK!

Nana interpretation of the show was…..Man sleeps around after the break up. Muahaha..I laugh at that statement!

Okie…this sleeps around thing lead me to another conversation I had with Nana over the national day rally. We were like DUHZ is Singaporean man so helpless an clueless about dating and getting a women!  So my comment was, Singapore should be happy that there are man like me and B. Nana then commented, women would be happy if there are more man like me than B! Muahha….I’m flattered!

okie I know…self praise is no praise. Anyway..Both Me and B are good men, liek the song goes “I can’t give u anything….but my my love” hmm..or was it “I can give you everything..but my love” *wink*

Sun Tzi Art of Treachery

Pertaining to my previous post on the local public transport situation.

I set me thinking along the Sun Tzi Art of War.
Imagine you a fighting a war and wants to lead your enemy to a terrain of your favor.
You will set up obstacles to cause them to may a make diversion. Where you will then ambush and attack them take advantage of what you have create.

Lets take a look at the scenario

ERPs & COEs are like obstacles to channel some drivers into public commuters.
Public Transport thus having enough commuters to maintain their revenues.

However one knowing that it is a trap, we walk in voluntarily.
The grass is not even Greener, No promise to increase the efficiency or frequency or fares of the transport?
In fact I observe the followings.

Train
Air-con dripping
Air-con not cooling
Stuffiness
Buses
EZlink card reader not working
No mobile TV?
Double decker seats indicator not working
Bus driver alight commuters far away from bus stop.

All I can say is…Sun Tzi Art of War Treachery really works!

An unusual conversation.

I was on the train this morning and with no surprise every was cramp like sardines in a can. LUCKY me I had some luxury of space to read my papers. When i flip to the forum section and begin reading, a unfamiliar voice was heard, I turned my head and saw a man in his early 40s. He was ranting to me on a article published in the papers.

It was how the LTA are attracting enticing drivers to scrap their cars at better deals. Thus channeling such segment of drivers to take public transport. He highlighted that the train was already badly pack at peak hours and he has to squeeze trough the crowd to get to a comfortable position to stand. He can’t imagine how it would become if there is such influx of new public transport user.

This complain wasn’t new to me. But someone whom I do not know, complaining to me at that situation was indeed a rare sight. I understand his frustration and wanting to voice it out to me.  I share his his view which I had already foresee sometime back. But not wanting to make his day worst, before I alight, I turn around and greeting him good bye and wishing him a good day ahead. I hope this will make his day, at least his voice was heard 🙂

I’ll begin my after thoughts on this issue in my next post.

Preparation for WAR

Weather was pretty nasty during the 2weeks of my military service. It was either raining heavily or the sun is scorching our skins off. Of coz we were wearing long sleeves…but its still pretty bad.

Well..what I wanted to highlight wasn’t how harsh the climate or the terrain was nor even the training. I wanted to talk about the mentality of my fellow camp mates. Few tried to “snake” their way through finding excuse to skip train when some have the “NI” attitude “not interested” attitude.

I was at the low side of my morale…come on, they will be the one who will be fighting side by side with me in times of war. But not knowing their drills will put our fellow mates life at stake. We are dealing with bullets and explosives..its not a joking matter!

Even the commanders ain’t sure of the drill.. ..and this reminds me of a question my dad once pose to me. What would I do if my commander made us attempt a mission knowing that it will definitely FAIL! I reply was…follow his order and save your life. A solider was train to follow orders and protect his own life!

His reply. Shoot the commander and took over the troops. Look for better opportunity to do the mission! Whaa…. sounds like treason! but I kind of like the idea now 🙂

Suggestion to Police

Haha…here is a joke (LAME)

Send that runner featured in their TV advertisement to catch him..He sure can run.

We can then have Singapore version of “Catch me if you can”
