Overheard on the intercom on a stucked train...

"Sorry for the inconvenience caused (awkward pause) this train a lot of problems."

Plough On

A note of encouragement found on the 136 steep steps I take daily to work.

Lion Muzzled

Spotted this at the train station I commute to for work.

The Courtesy Lion also seems to be ready with a hug. I would think twice about hugging this one though.

Just a Jog

Today I went for a jog.

I loathe to jog. Took up the regime 2 years ago but only stuck to it religiously for a year. Nowadays I jog to accompany Kennth Coles or to blow off steam. Today, it was for the latter reason.

I was in love with a festival for 4 years. 10 to be exact. 6 years as an audience member and then the last 4 years as a punter. I traveled with it to Sri Lanka to see how beautiful it was 2 weeks before the tsunami; to South Korea to have live octopus; to Australia to taste Barossa Valley wines but I never have to travel beyond Singapore to see what the festival represents and the joy it brings to people.

No matter how we parted ways, it was still the best career high for me for 4 years running. The people who slogged behind-the-scenes with me to stage it were some of the most fiercely loyal friends I will ever meet. Today, I heard it being dissed and I didn’t have enough balls to stand up to defend my ex-love. So I can only jog.

New Toy

This is my new toy - a gift from my aunt.

I like it because it

1) looks like a spaceship from a cartoon
2) oddly goes well with the colour scheme at home
3) turns this chicken
into this chicken.
I feel like a Nigella Lawson moment coming on.
